FORT WAYNE — A former Kendallville resident is gaining national attention for her ordeal as a stalking victim. Dawn Hillyer of Fort Wayne was featured on a national cable TV network Monday night and is scheduled to appear on Katie Couric’s talk show Dec. 17 describing her experiences. Monday, Investigation Discovery network’s season premiere of “Stalked: Someone’s Watching” told Hillyer’s story. Hillyer said Tuesday she hopes

her television appearances will make an impact on awareness of stalking. “I’m doing it No. 1 for myself, but for our kids,” she said in a telephone interview. Hillyer is campaigning for Hillyer more laws to protect stalking victims. She said she would like to see Indiana join Ohio, Michigan and other states that allow GPS tracking of convicted felons after their release from prison.

She also wants Indiana to approve lifelong protective orders for stalking victims. Hillyer favors starting a domestic violence registry — similar to the sex offender registry — that would include stalking offenders. “It’s an inherent trait that’s inside of them,” she said about stalkers. “Very rarely is it a one-time occurrence.” In her case, she said, “There was a victim before me and a victim after me, too.” Hillyer lived in Kendallville as a child until moving to Fort Wayne during her high school years.

Obama aims for legacy Mandela’s fight for equality not finished

EN Theatre Santa breakfast Saturday KENDALLVILLE — East Noble Theatre’s annual “Breakfast With Santa” will take place Saturday at East Noble High School with performances at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Tickets cost $8 and may be reserved by calling the box office at 347-7167 today through Friday from 4-6 p.m. This show is not included in the season ticket package. Breakfast will be served in the school cafeteria, with a Christmas show to follow in Cole Auditorium featuring East Noble Theatre performers and Santa Claus.

In February 2012, an Allen County jury found Hillyer’s stalker guilty of two counts of stalking, Class C felonies. A month later, the judge in the case sentenced Michael McClellan of Waterloo to five years in prison for each count — a total of 10 years. Evidence at the trial showed Hillyer dated McClellan for a year before ending their relationship in August 2006. In October of that year, McClellan began contacting her multiple times daily by phone, text, email and in person. On one day he

wanted to do some traveling. “Later that year, Joy called and said they ‘really’ needed some help managing federal projects and wanted to know if I would reconsider,” Fitch said. “I agreed to meet with the commissioners, and we agreed to a part-time work schedule starting in November 2010.” Fitch followed a full-time county engineer, Keith Lytton. He said when he was hired that he hoped to stay with the job until a full-time engineer was hired. Fitch got his wish in November when the commissioners hired

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — President Barack Obama’s eulogy was for Nelson Mandela, but it laid out for a global audience the work that Obama himself would like to be remembered for: an unending fight against injustice and inequality. Obama acknowledged he sometimes wonders whether he is doing enough to live up to Mandela’s historic legacy. Speaking to a crowd of thousands at a rain-soaked memorial service — and millions more on television — Obama said it was crucial that progress in the U.S. and South Africa not “cloud the fact that our work is not yet done.” He said that struggles to come “may not be as filled with drama and moral clarity as those that came before, but they are no less important.” Behind Obama’s words was the difficult political reality he and Mandela both faced. They became their nations’ first black presidents, shattering racial barriers that once seemed impossible to break. But their groundbreaking electoral success came with sky-high expectations that proved difficult to fulfill, on problems like poverty and injustice. For Obama, Tuesday’s focus on global inequality dovetailed with an agenda he is trying to revive in the U.S., as he seeks to steady his standing with middle class Americans after a trying presidential year. Obama’s renewed attention to the issue of income inequality in particular is popular with his liberal base, though he stands little chance of gaining support for items such as a minimum wage increase from congressional Republicans. “With honesty, regardless of our station or our circumstance, we must ask: ‘How well have I applied his lessons in my own life?” Obama said of Mandela. “It’s a question I ask myself, as a man and as president.” While Obama may be facing political troubles at home, his broad popularity in South Africa was on full display. The crowd at the Johannesburg soccer stadium erupted in applause each time the American president’s name was mentioned or his image flashed on the stadium screen. In small but significant ways, Obama also appeared to be trying to live Mandela’s message of overcoming animosity and bitterness.




Albion resident Dave Davis, seated, presented pins and certificates to people who helped save his life after a Nov. 9 fall at Tuesday’s Albion Town Council meeting. Among those honored were, front row, from left, Joyce Baumberger,

Albion man thanks life savers BY BOB BRALEY

ALBION — Dave Davis of Albion did something at the Albion Town Council meeting Tuesday that his family feared he wouldn’t be able to do — thank the people who saved his life. “Because you guys were there, I’m here,” Davis told the first responders and dispatchers who saved his life Nov. 9. Davis had fallen and hit his head on concrete in his backyard at about 6:20 p.m., Albion Town Marshal Tom Lock said. Davis’ wife called 911 for help. The first dispatcher on the line was Kristie Bucher of Noble County E-911, said Councilman Mitch Fiandt. He also serves as Noble County E-911 executive director. The call was transferred to Joyce Baumberger, a dispatcher for EMS through Parkview Health, said Noble County EMS executive director Tom Shoemaker.

The first responder to the scene was Albion Police Officer Shawn Garner, Lock said. Garner found Davis unconscious and without a pulse. The officer immediately began administering CPR, Lock said. Within seconds of Garner’s arrival, Noble County EMS, Noble County Sheriff’s Deputy Johnny Richie and the Albion Fire Department also arrived and took turns administering CPR and providing other care to Davis, transporting him to Parkview Noble Hospital. Others honored Tuesday included Lucy Ford, Jonathan Stevens and Robert Combs, all of Noble County EMS, Rich Aldrich and Jorden Gorsuch of the Albion Fire Department and Jay Squadrito of the LaOtto Fire Department. Davis shook hands with each and presented them with a pin and certificate. Immediate CPR was the key, Lock said, adding, “This is what saved him.”

Also Tuesday, the council: • approved a new salary ordinance for 2014 giving most town full-time employees a $1,000 per year raise and 25 cents per hour more to part-time employees. Police officers will receive $15-$17 per hour. A one-time specialty payment for employees receiving job-related licenses and certifications will require council approval before it is received. • approved continuing the contracts of Lock as town marshal and Albion town manager Beth Shellman. • approved 5-0 allowing the Noble County Miracle Tree to use a town storage building to store equipment once it is done with its 2013 campaign. • approved 4-0 with one abstention allowing the Albion American Legion post to store a trailer in the same building if space permits. Councilman James Stull, who is an officer of the Legion post, abstained.

Engineer Fitch retiring again BY BOB BRALEY

ALBION — Noble County highway engineer Michael Fitch will retire at the end of the year — for his fourth retirement. In addition to owning his engineering firm, Michael Fitch Engineering LLC, Fitch previously worked as the chief Fitch design engineer with the city of Fort Wayne, executive director of the Allen County Highway Depart-

ment and manager of local public agency projects with the Indiana Department of Transportation. “When I retired from INDOT in June 2010, Joy LeCount approached me about helping Noble County with their federally funded highway-bridge projects,” Fitch said. “She knew that I had moved to Noble County — Crooked Lake — from Allen County a few years earlier. The county did not have a county engineer, so she thought I might make a good fit. “I told her I really wanted to retire for a while, as this was my third retirement, and my wife and I

Police ask for help with Royer Lake burglaries FROM STAFF REPORTS

PLATO — A recent string of burglaries at homes along Royer Lake in LaGrange County has prompted police to reach out the public, hoping someone will come forward with information to help them solve the crimes. LaGrange County Sheriff’s

Detective Stephanie Mickem said someone pried open doors on at least seven neighboring cottages on Royer Lake either Saturday or Sunday and burglarized the homes. A neighbor noticed an open door and alerted police. “She was monitoring her neighbor’s home, and when she

walked over there to check on things, she found the open door and called us,” the detective said. Mickem said she believes most of the homes were targeted because they are seasonal homes and were unoccupied at this time of year. That’s made figuring out exactly what was taken from each

home more difficult. “We’re still in the midst of our investigation,” Mickem explained. She’s asking anyone with information on the crimes to contact the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department at 463-7491 or call her directly at 463-0238.





Kendallville Park Board increases camping fees BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — It will cost campers $2 more per day to camp in Bixler Lake Park next year. The Kendallville Park Board Monday night approved increasing the daily camping fee from $15 to $17 for the Bixler Lake Park campground. The fee does not include an additional charge of $2.50 for water and electricity. The camping fee for holidays and the Apple Festival of Kendallville weekend will increase from $18 to $20.

Prospective campground director Bob Ransom recommended the fee change, saying the increase still leaves the cost for camping at the Bixler Lake campground within the range of state park daily camping fees of $12 to $18 without water and electricity. The new fee is also less than the daily camping fee at Chain O’ Lakes State Park near Albion. Ransom is expected to take over the campground director duties in January, according to park department director Jim Pankop. He would replace Roger Ford.

The camping fee increase is the only change proposed in the park and recreation department’s user fees for 2014. Board members reviewed capital improvements projects for next year recommended by Pankop. His top priority is replacing three aging playground structures in the campground, the upper park near the basketball courts and the picnic area on the east side of the lake. Old equipment that is not compliant with the American With Disabilities Act, including swings and a slide,

has been removed and sold for scrap, Pankop said. The board looked at three possible designs for the new playgrounds that include wood-chip safety areas. The park department has applied for a Dekko Foundation grant to help pay for new equipment, and money has been allocated in the budget for the wood chips and concrete. If funding is obtained, park maintenance staff under the guidance of the design vendor will install the new equipment next summer. Another major improvement project planned

for 2014 is installing a city sewer line to the east beachhouse and campground. Pankop is getting a scope of services from at least two vendors. Other proposed capital improvement projects are: • determine if the Youth Center should remain a park office or a new building should be constructed in the park; • explore funding for additional campground improvements including new restrooms and more recreational vehicle camping spots; • finish removal of dead

ash trees and stumps and continue planting new trees; • repair park roads with the City Council streets and alleys committee’s help; • improve signage in the park nature areas and the Outdoor Recreation Complex; • install a security system at the complex maintenance and concession buildings; and • install a quality public address system at the complex baseball fields. Completing what he described as a “wish list” will depend on funding, Pankop said.

Patriotic Christmas concert features memories of Elvis BY SUE CARPENTER

KENDALLVILLE — Three national recording artists will share the stage Friday in Cole Auditorium for a Patriotic Christmas concert. Todd Allen Herendeen, Ray Walker and Ronnie Knight will honor all veterans and also present each veteran attending with a gift. They are asking audience members to bring items to send overseas to those now serving their country. Herendeen of Panama City, Fla., is a graduate of East Noble High School. He and his band have performed in Las Vegas and other venues, but he said he always remembers his northeast Indiana roots. Bass singer Walker, a Grammy Award winner, was a member of the Jordanaires, the longtime

backup singers for Elvis Presley. Walker, who also performed with Patsy Cline and Ricky Nelson, has one of the most-recorded voices in history. Two of his fellow members of the Jordanaires died in the last year, but Walker keeps up the singing tradition with Herendeen and other stage shows. Knight, also a bass singer, is a Nashville-based artist who has sung backup with Kenny Rogers, the Blackwood Brothers and J.D. Sumner. Although retired, he heard Herendeen and said he “liked what the group was doing” and recently joined them on the road. He will add his baritone voice at Friday’s concert. The first half of the program will include Walker’s stories and anecdotes of working with various artists, mixed with

public in the school cafeteria from 3-5 p.m. The winter guard also will perform a Christmas dance. Sunday’s event is a fundraiser for the winter percussion and winter guard programs. Tickets cost $5 and include cheesecake, coffee and hot tea. There will be a drawing for a 51-inch Samsung plasma television. Tickets for the drawing cost $5, and the winner need not be present. There will also be a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction. The winter band program includes students participating in pep band performing at basketball

games and concert band. East Noble Band Boosters is conducting a fundraiser for the program by selling sponsorships for business names on winter program T-shirts. The front of the shirts will have the theme of this year’s winter program show and the back will list sponsors in order of amount donated. Contributions are tax-deductible. Those interested in supporting the program can contact boosters president Ed Gibson at 349-5654, boosters vice president Cindy Maxwell at 466-1640 or boosters general treasurer Scott Frick at 349-2460.

Arc Opportunities celebrates clients’ achievements BY PATRICK REDMOND

SHIPSHEWANA — More than 1,000 people gathered in the Shipshewana Events Center Monday evening for the annual Arc workers program and business meeting. Arc Opportunities of LaGrange assists developmentally disabled residents in LaGrange County. It was founded in 1966. The annual meeting includes tasks such as formally electing the board of directors. The biggest cheers of the night came during the awards program, where many of the people who use Arc’s services are recognized for their devotion to their jobs and their attendance. “Everybody likes to be recognized,” said Deb Seman, CEO of Arc Opportunities. “It means the world to them to see people turn out and acknowledge

their work.” Part of Monday night’s program was a short holiday show by the Arc clients. Seman said parts for the performance were handed out in July, and her clients have been working hard ever since memorizing their lines and songs. “It gives everyone an opportunity to shine in front of family and friends, and to show people they have far more ability than disability,” Seman explained. Among the evening’s highlights was naming the winner of the Highest Production Increase Award. This year, Andrew Sprunger took home that honor, after increasing his productivity by 14 percent. The Most Improved Worker Award went to Jeffery Hill. Workers who achieved perfect records by never missing a single day of work were honored as well. Nearly 40 percent of Arc’s

Mayor dies from liver cancer GREENFIELD, Ind. (AP) — The mayor of a central Indiana city has died just days after his family said he had ended treatment for a recurrence of liver cancer and was in home hospice care. Greenfield Mayor Dick Pasco died at his home Tuesday morning, Chuck Anderson, administrative assistant in the mayor’s office, told The Associated Press. Anderson said he had spoken with Pasco’s daughter. Pasco, who had been suffering liver problems since shortly before his 2011 election, was hospitalized on Nov. 30 for dehydration and pain. He returned home on Friday, his wife and daughter said in a statement to the Daily Reporter.

The statement said the 66-year-old wanted to spend time at home with family members and close friends and that the family appreciated the public’s support and prayers. Pasco had said he was first diagnosed with liver cancer 14 years ago and given eight months to live. He had surgery followed by experimental chemotherapy.

Death In The News • ‘The Sound of Music’ baroness dies at 91 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eleanor Parker, who was nominated for Academy Awards three times for her portrayals of strongwilled women and played a scheming baroness in “The Sound of Music,” has died at 91. Family friend Richard Gale said Parker died Monday morning due to complications from pneumonia. “She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her children at a medical facility near her home in Palm Springs,” Gale added. Parker was nominated for Oscars in 1950, 1951 and 1955, but then saw her career begin to wane in the early 1960s. Her last memorable role came in 1965’s “The Sound of Music,” in which she played the scheming baroness who loses Christopher Plummer to Julie Andrews.

federal default and gridlock on President Barack Obama’s agenda. In a blow to Democrats, the agreement announced by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Paul Ryan, R-Wis., omitted an extension of benefits for workers unemployed longer than 26 weeks. The program expires on Dec. 28, when payments will be cut off for an estimated 1.3 million individuals. Aides predicted bipartisan approval in both houses in the next several days, despite grumbling from liberals over the omission of the unemployment extension and even though tea party-aligned groups are pushing Republican conservatives to oppose the deal. The White House quickly issued a statement from Obama praising the deal as a “good first step.� He urged lawmakers to both parties to follow up and “actually pass a budget based on this agreement so

I can sign it into law and our economy can continue growing and creating jobs without more Washington headwinds.� Congress’ two budget negotiators hailed their own work. The deal “reduces the deficit by $23 billion and it does not raise taxes. It cuts spending in a smarter way� than the ones in effect, said Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who chairs the House Budget Committee. Murray said the agreement “breaks through the recent dysfunction to prevent another government shutdown and roll back sequestration’s cuts to defense and domestic investments in a balanced way.� Sequestration is Washington budget-speak for across-theboard cuts. “It’s a good step in the right direction that can hopefully rebuild some trust and serve as a foundation for continued bipartisan work,� Murray said.

Indiana’s Evan Gordon (10) puts up a shot against Oakland on Tuesday. Indiana won 81-54.

BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Evan Gordon knew transferring to Indiana would invite pressure. He recognized that his last name brought extra expectations. Gordon suddenly looks more than worthy. He scored a season-high 26 points - 16 in a dominant opening half for Indiana - to lead the Hoosiers to an 81-54 blowout win over Oakland on Tuesday. Gordon has 41 points in his last two games after scoring in double figures just twice in the first eight. “It’s all coming out,” Gordon said. “When your team has confidence in you, it gives you confidence. I’ve gotten open. I’ve stayed a little more aggressive than I have been. It’s ball movement really. We’re playing faster and pushing the ball ahead. Everybody’s getting pretty good looks.” Indiana (8-2) won its second straight and extended its nonconference home winning streak to 36. Gordon, a 6-foot senior who transferred from Arizona State in the offseason, was expected to add experience, ballhandling and scoring to Indiana’s backcourt. Playing off the bench, Gordon has seen time at both guard spots.

Against the Golden Grizzlies, most of his first-half minutes came at point guard with starter Yogi Ferrell limited to nine minutes because of foul trouble. Gordon thrived, making his first eight shots, one shy of matching a school record, before Oakland center Corey Petros blocked a layup with 8:22 left in the game. Gordon finished 10-of-12 from the field in 26 minutes and had fans at Assembly Hall periodically chanting his name. He started 7-of-7 in a win over North Florida on Saturday before missing his final two shots to finish with 15 points. That was Gordon’s first double-figure outing in five games. Gordon’s brother Eric, now a starting guard for the New Orleans Pelicans, starred at Indiana during the 2007-08 season before departing early for the draft. During the game, Eric tweeted, “My bro is on FIRE!!!!!” “He was on fire,” teammate Luke Fischer said. “It was his night. We knew we had to keep giving him the ball. He’s spectacular right now.” Oakland (2-8) never found an answer and lost its 11th straight away from home. The Golden Grizzlies started 0-7 against a

difficult schedule that included North Carolina, UCLA, California and Gonzaga. It won’t get easier. They next face No. 5 Michigan State on Saturday. “The way they played tonight, I’d say that’s as good a team as has played against us,” Oakland coach Greg Kampe said. “They’re very good if they can shoot like that.” Leading scorer Travis Bader saw his streak of consecutive games with a 3-pointer come to an end at 62. It was the longest active streak in the nation. Bader missed all 10 attempts. He was held to 11 points, more than 10 beneath his average, and shot 2-of-15 from the field overall. “It was a game within the game for us tonight,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said. Gordon played a part in what was a team effort on Bader. The coaching staff credited Gordon with 13 deflections during the game. “He’s got big assignments defensively,” Crean said. “Evan is in the gym more. That’s really important. When Evan came here, one of our big points was there was a lot more he could get better at. You’re starting to see that.”

Heights outlasts ECA BY KEN FILLMORE

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — Prairie Heights’ boys basketball team overcame a torrid-shooting third quarter from Elkhart Christian Academy Tuesday night to defeat the Eagles 86-79 in overtime in a non-conference matchup. Junior forward Jacob Heller had eight of his 36 points in overtime to push the Panthers to victory. But there was much more who made the win possible, said coach Brett Eltzroth. “It was a great team win,” Eltzroth said. “I can not say enough about the guts and the mentality we showed. We were down 10 with under 6 minutes to go in regulation. We bent a little bit, but did not break. That’s how a team stays together. “Corey Johnson stepped up huge. He was big defensively and made some big shots. I can’t give enough credit to every single player who played.” Heights overcame a doubledigit deficit in the fourth quarter to take a lead at 70-69 after a Cody Bachelor putback of a long three-point miss by Johnson.

Knights fall to Carroll in NHC dual meet BY JAMES FISHER

KENDALLVILLE — Brandon Joest must have thought his match would never end. The East Noble wrestler went to overtime — seven periods in all — to register a 4-3 victory over Carroll’s Brad Sadiek. “They’re both state qualifiers and know each other very well,” said East Noble coach Keith Hoffar. “Brandon put himself in position to win.” The Knights came away with a 46-33 loss to Carroll in the Northeast Hoosier Conference dual meet. “We’re disappointed, but we did have some people wrestle well,” Hoffar said. The Knights got pins in the match from Nate Weimer (106 pounds), Garrett Pepple (113) and Mason Diffendrfer (138). Taking victories by decision were Sterling Lutter (126), Jake Weimer (145) and Joest (220).

Also seeing action but suffering losses were Blake Gordon (120), Nate Housholder (132), Riley Jones (152), Jesse Maley (160), Skyler Haas (170), Ernest Vincent (182), David Salazar (195) and Sid Napier (285). “We gave up a lot of points through the middle,” Hoffar explained. “We’re wrestling hard, but we’re looking for better results.” The Knights are at Norwell on Saturday in a meet that also includes DeKalb.

Pacers rally in 2nd half to beat Heat INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Roy Hibbert threw all the inside body jabs Tuesday night. Paul George finished it off with the knockout blow. Together, the Pacers’ devastating one-two scoring punch did it again to the champs. Hibbert finished with 24 points, George made two big 3-pointers during a 15-point second half scoring spree and Indiana rallied from a seven-point halftime deficit to take Round 1 against Miami 90-84. “It was fun, a real intense game,” George said. “Both teams were playing at a high level. You could see an urgency to win this game tonight.” While Indiana extended its franchise-record home start to a perfect 10-0 and took a three-game advantage over Miami in the early chase for home-court advantage, this was no ordinary regular season game. During pregame media availability, Indiana’s Lance Stephenson said this game felt like a championship matchup. Two of Miami’s big three, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, tried to downplay that sort of talk by explaining this was not a win or go home night. The hometown fans didn’t care what the Heat thought. They were already in postseason form, booing loudly at the officials, chanting “He’s a flopper” on some contestable foul calls and eventually serenading Miami players with those familiar chants of “Beat the Heat.” But the Pacers (19-3) also understood this was only be the start of a season-long quest that

could pit the two best teams in the East in the conference finals for a second straight year. First, there’s the rematch in Miami on Dec. 18. They won’t meet again until March 26 in Indy, then head back to Miami on April 11 before what most expect to be a third straight meeting in the playoffs. If those games have as much intrigue and pizazz as Tuesday night’s showdown, they may be the most compelling all season. And the Pacers can’t wait to show how much they can improve — even on a win over the two-time champs and four-time MVP LeBron James. “It’s just one game,” Hibbert said. “We’re going to learn from it. It’s a learning experience. It’s still early in the season. We have a lot more work to do.” To the average fan, it looked a lot like last season’s playoff series, which Miami won in seven games. Hibbert dominated the middle, scoring nine of Indiana’s first 11 points and making a seasonhigh 10 baskets — most from point-blank range — despite playing in the second half with cotton in his nose. David West added 17 points, nine rebounds and four assists including a left-handed 4-foot runner that gave Indiana an 88-81 lead with 38.9 seconds to go. James’ defense and Miami’s physical double-teams frustrated George most of the night, but when George finally got free late, he made three big 3-pointers s to help the Pacers pull away. George, the NBA’s No. 4 scorer, finished

with 17 points, three rebounds and four assists. “I knew it was going to be a night when I was going to explode offensively,” George said. “I knew I had to move the ball and share it.” Chasing George all night

apparently took a toll on James and the Heat (16-6). While James, the league’s No. 2 scorer did get 17 points, 14 rebounds and six assists, he was just 3 of 11 from the field with nine points over the final 36 minutes — three quarters when

Bachelor had another go-ahead basket before Kenny Bearss made one of two free throws with 17.4 seconds left to tie the game at 72. The sophomore Bachelor fouled out on the play and finished with 14 points. Heller missed the front end of a one-and-one with 6.8 seconds left, and the game went to overtime. The complexion of the game changed some when top Elkhart Christian player Cory Waycaster fouled out with 3:36 left in overtime. But the Eagles kept fighting while the Panthers led for much of the extra session. Heights built the lead up to five at 80-75 on a three-point play by Zach Shepard with 1:32 left after the Panthers nearly turned the ball over. ECA got within one before Heller clinched the win with a determined drive and three-point play with 29.1 seconds to play. Kyler West had 10 points and Shepard added nine for Prairie Heights, who won its third straight game. The win have all been at home. “I’m so proud of the unselfishness of this team,” Eltzroth said. “Our bounceback after the Garrett loss has been great. The crowd has been great at home.” Prairie Heights led 34-29 at the half. But Elkhart Christian (2-1) whittled away as Ryan Kupferschmidt hit three straight three-pointers to start the third quarter. An inside basket by 24 gave the Eagles the lead at 42-41 with 4 minutes, 56 seconds left in the stanza. Kupferschmidt hit three free throws after PH’s Dylan Stayner was called for an intentional foul at the 3:37 mark. That began a 10-1

Girls Basketball Goshen 58, West Noble 39 West Noble’s girls basketball team let a first-quarter lead slip away as the Chargers lost to Goshen, 58-39, in a nonconference game played in Ligonier. West Noble came out strong in the first quarter, leading 18-11, and was only down by four at the half to Goshen. But the second half belonged to the Lady Redskins who pulled away and led 47-35 after three quarters. Goshen moved to 6-1 on the season while West Noble fell to 5-3. Kelsie Peterson led West Noble with 14 points while Paige Shearer had 11 points. Taylor Fisher added six points with Becca Schermerhorn and Kenzie Cox each having four points. Deja Felder had 21 points for Goshen. The Chargers return to Northeast Corner Conference action on Friday, playing Churbusco at home. Goshen also claimed the junior varsity contest, 34-26. Concord 55, Lakeland 51 Abi Thompson broke loose for 25 points and eight rebounds, but the Lakers lost their fourth-straight, falling 55-51 to Concord. Nicole McKibben added 10 points for Lakeland, with eight points and six steals for Becca Levitz. Ashtin Kaminer contributed four points, five steals and three assists.

Miami failed to top the 20-point mark and had five turnovers. Wade also finished with 17 points, while Bosh added 12. It was Miami’s third loss in five games. “I thought we brought it tonight,” James said. “We know they’re a very good defensive team. I thought they hit some tough shots and they attacked the rim real well but even though they had us down by 10 rebounds, I thought we rebounded well and we battled.” Aside from the slow start, the Pacers couldn’t have produced a better script. After Miami took a 13-pont lead midway through the second quarter, Indiana charged back to get within 47-40 at halftime. Indiana then opened the third quarter with back-to-back baskets to close the deficit to four. The Pacers finally tied it at 55 on George Hill’s 3 with 8:15 to go in the third, and Hibbert gave the Pacers’ their first lead, 58-57, on a three-point play 2 minutes later. George helped keep the Heat at arm’s length after finally making his first basket with 3:51 left in the third, and Miami never tied the score or regained the lead. “Anytime you get into this kind of a slugfest with them, where you’re down six to eight points, it feels like it’s a 20-point lead,” Bosh said. “We know they’re a good team. We know what their goals are, we know what our goals are, we want to keep building to be a complete team for the spring.”

Kentucky hands Boise State 1st loss LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — James Young scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half and No. 11 Kentucky used solid defense to hand Boise State its first loss, 70-55 on Tuesday night. The Wildcats (8-2) dominated the Broncos (8-1) 43-27 on the glass. Kentucky held the nation’s No. 2 offense 37 points below its average, limiting Boise State to 8-of-35 shooting in the second half and 22 of 69 overall (32 percent). Kentucky 7-footer Willie Cauley-Stein matched

his career high with nine blocks. Julius Randle had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Wildcats, while guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison each scored 13 points and combined for seven rebounds. Kentucky’s 27-of-51 shooting (53 percent) helped deny Boise State its first 9-0 start. Anthony Drmic scored 18 points and Derrick Marks had 14 as the Broncos made just five 3-pointers after averaging 8.2 per game coming in.

Ovechkin scores 26th goal of season as Capitals rally WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Ovechkin scored four goals, including the equalizer with 32.4 seconds left in regulation, and the Washington Capitals rallied to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-5 in a shootout Tuesday night. Ovechkin increased his NHL-leading total to 26 goals and became Washington’s career leader in power-play goals, scoring twice with the extra man to pass Peter Bondra, who had 137. Nicklas Backstrom had a goal and four assists, and Troy Brouwer beat Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop in the fifth round of the shootout to provide the Capitals with their fifth win in six games.

Martin St. Louis and Tyler Johnson each had a goal and two assists for the Lightning, who squandered a three-goal lead in losing their sixth straight at Washington. Ondrej Palat scored on a wrist shot between the circles after taking Johnson’s centering pass from behind the net to put Tampa Bay up 5-4 at 8:36 of the third period. It appeared that would hold up until Ovechkin scored from the left circle after Washington pulled goalie Philipp Grubauer. Panthers 3, Red Wings 2, SO Brad Boyes scored the winning goal in a shootout to lift Florida

over Detroit. Aleksander Barkov also scored in the tiebreaker for Florida, which has won three of four overall and two in a row against the Red Wings. Tomas Tatar scored for Detroit in the shootout but Tim Thomas stopped shots by Daniel Alfredsson and Gustav Nyquist. Nick Bjugstad and Sean Bergenheim had goals in regulation for Florida. Thomas made 24 saves. Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi scored for the Red Wings. Jimmy Howard made 25 saves and Johan Franzen had two assists.

Detroit lost for the sixth time this season when leading after two periods. Florida scored twice in the third to tie the game. Predators 4, Rangers 1 Nick Spaling and Rich Clune scored first-period goals, and seldom-used backup Carter Hutton made 28 saves as Nashville snapped a five-game losing streak by beating New York. Hutton (5-3-1) made his first start since Nov. 10 and his third appearance in that span as the Predators try to get by while Pekka Rinne (hip) is out. Marek Mazanec went 0-4-1 in the previous five games. Matt Hendricks made it 3-1

just 2:38 into the third, knocking in a loose puck from in front, with Clune earning an assist. Paul Gaustad scored an empty-net goal with 1:06 left and added two assists. Rick Nash cut New York’s deficit in half in the second period and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 22 shots, but the Rangers fell to 0-2-1 on their nine-game homestand. They have dropped four straight at Madison Square Garden (0-3-1). Sabres 2, Senators 1, SO Zemgus Girgensons scored the tying goal in the second period and added a score in the 10th round of a shootout to lift Buffalo over Ottawa.

Transactions BASEBALL American League CHICAGO WHITE SOX — Acquired OF Adam Eaton from Arizona for LHP Hector Santiago and a player to be named or cash considerations. Agreed on a six-year player development extension with Charlotte (IL) and four-year extensions with Kannapolis (SAL) and Great Falls (Pioneer).


SPORTS BRIEFS • Trumbo to Diamondbacks in 3-team trade LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels traded slugging outfielder-first baseman Mark Trumbo to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday as part of a three-team deal that also includes the Chicago White Sox. Pitcher Hector Santiago moved from the White Sox to the Angels, outfielder Adam Eaton from Diamondbacks to Chicago, and left-hander Tyler Skaggs from Arizona to Los Angeles. Arizona also will receive player to be named or cash from each of the other clubs in the deal made at the winter meetings. Trumbo hit .234 with 34 homers and 100 RBIs this year, getting much of his playing time at first base because Albert Pujols was hurt. But he was deemed superfluous by Los Angeles, which needs starting pitching behind Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson and Garrett Richards. Santiago was 4-9 with a 3.56 ERA in 23 starts and 11 relief appearances. His fastball velocity has dipped from 93.8 mph in 2011 to 92.8 in 2012 to 91.8 last season, according to Eaton hit .252 with three homers, 22 RBIs and 44 strikeouts in 250 at-bats for the Diamondbacks this year, when he also played with three minor league teams. Skaggs went to Santa Monica High School, was taken by the Angels with the 40th overall selection of the 2009 amateur draft and was dealt to the Diamondbacks in August 2010 to complete the trade that brought Dan Haren to Los Angeles. Skaggs made his big league debut in 2012, when he had six starts, but spent much of this year in the minors. He was 2-3 with a 5.12 ERA in seven starts this year for Arizona, leaving him with a 3-6 career mark. All four players have low salaries for now. Trumbo and Santiago are on track to be eligible for salary arbitration after next season, Eaton following 2015 season and Skaggs after the 2016 season.

Arencibia, Rangers complete $1.8M contract LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Catcher J.P. Arencibia and the Texas Rangers have finalized a $1.8 million, one-year contract. Arencibia hit .194 with 21 homers, 18 doubles and 55 RBIs in a career-high 138 games this year for Toronto. The Blue Jays didn’t offer him a contract by the Dec. 2 deadline and allowed him to become a free agent. Arencibia has a .212 career average with 64 homers and 193 RBIs in four big league seasons. He turns 28 next month and figures to be a backup to Geovany Soto. The agreement was announced Tuesday. Arencibia is fourth among catchers in home runs over the past three seasons with 62. Two of Arencibia’s seven multihomer games have come in Arlington. The other five were in Toronto.

Toronto’s Phaneuf suspended two games for boarding NEW YORK (AP) — Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf has been suspended two games for his hit from behind on Kevan Miller of the Boston Bruins. Phaneuf will not play against Los Angeles on Wednesday and at St. Louis on Thursday. He loses more than $66,000 in salary. During Toronto’s loss to Boston on Sunday night at Air Canada Centre, Miller’s back was turned at the time. No boarding penalty was called. Miller left the game but coach Claude Julien said he wasn’t worried about the defenseman’s condition. Phaneuf had a phone hearing Tuesday with NHL vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan. The suspension is the Leafs’ fourth this season. The others were to David Clarkson, Nazem Kadri and Carter Ashton.

Green, Ruettgers new Packers Hall of Fame members GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Former Green Bay Packers players Ahman Green and Ken Ruettgers will be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame next summer. Green, a running back obtained in a trade with Seattle in 2000, played eight seasons with the Packers and finished as the club’s all-time rushing leader with 8,322 yards. He also holds franchise records for most yards from scrimmage (11,048), 1,000-yard seasons (six), 100-yard games (33) and rushing attempts (1,851). Ruettgers played 12 years for the Packers (1985-96) and was a fixture at left tackle for more than a decade. A first-round draft pick in 1985, he appeared in 156 career games, with 140 starts. The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. announced the selections Tuesday. The 44th Hall of Fame induction banquet will be held July 19.






Disliking Jesus I won’t like Pope Francis I. I won’t like Jesus. In case you have been living under a rock, or lack computer access, which is pretty much the same thing in some circles, on the social media website FaceBook, you almost constantly are encouraged to click “like” buttons. You can “like” your favorite sports team, college, businesses, hobbies and television programs “Liking” something is basically an atta-boy, a web-based popularity contest. For public relations purposes, it would be a feather in Pepsi’s cap if MATT it had more “likes” than Coke. GETTS But what does it actually mean? Do companies such as DIRECTV really care if someone “likes” them on FaceBook? To see what impact this had on the satellite television provider, I phoned all five of the people identified as being media specialists at the company. Apparently, none of the media specialists at DIRECTV work on Thursday afternoons. I then emailed the vice president of the company’s media relations arm, Darris Gringeri. My email to Mr. Gringeri was short and to the point, “I have ‘liked’ DIRECTV on FaceBook. I would like a company The whole reaction to that.” I eagerly awaited ‘liking’ thing can a response. As of late Tuesday, I am be misleading still in the awaiting phase. DIRECTV is obviously so deeply in my debt it cannot respond. The whole “liking” thing can be misleading. Off to one side of my FaceBook page is an ad that asks me if I like Pope Francis I. Clicking the “like” button on this advertisement actually adds a “like” to The Catholic Company, a distributor of religious items and gifts. I have done business with The Catholic Company because its selection and pricing are very competitive. But I will not “like” it, because the company is basically using people’s fondness for the new pope to bolster its own popularity numbers. It’s the same thing with Jesus. A pop-up ad on Thursday told me I should hit “like” if I was a follower of Jesus Christ. Talk about peer pressure. In the interest of full disclosure, I not only like and follow Jesus Christ, I have lovingly embraced him as my personal savior. In this instance, hitting that “like” button to the question that asks if you are a follower of Jesus Christ adds a “like” to, an online news magazine. I found this company’s website, and didn’t find anything Jesus-related on it, other than a brief story about the pope, one of a dozen stories on its home page. Of course, the hidden implication is that if you don’t “like” Jesus, then you must “dislike” Him, which is balderdash. Does anyone really think that Jesus is waiting for his millionth “like?” Is there another god with whom He is competing for popularity? What if God the Father gets ticked because his Son has more “likes?” The very Trinity could be in jeopardy. Not. Don’t “like” being a follower of Jesus. BE a follower of Jesus. Don’t “like” IU sports. Donate to the local alumni association. Be someone who does, not someone who “likes.” How do you like that?

Obamacare’s youth market: an economic miscalculation? BY CECIL BOHANON

Central to the success of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, are 20- to 30-year-olds buying government-approved health insurance policies. The administration, its friends and allies are running a full-court public-relations press touting the advantages of health insurance to these young folks. Advertising may facilitate some to sign up, but economists generally believe that incentives are more important. How, then, does the ACA change economic incentives to buy health insurance to the young and uninsured? Consider the health insurance market before the ACA is in place. Charlie is a 27-year-old single male who freelances in Anytown, Indiana. He earns $45,000 a year and does not currently buy health insurance. Economists surmise his choice not to buy is the by-product of a cost-benefit calculation. The costs of health insurance are the premiums Charley has to pay. The benefits of buying health insurance are twofold.

If Charlie has a catastrophic medical event — say contracts a rare form of cancer — most of his health bills will be paid for by his insurance carrier. Second, by purchasing health insurance before such an awful disease develops he has continued access to coverage. In a pre-ACA world there is a strong incentive for a healthy young person to buy insurance to insure against the risk of becoming uninsurable. But apparently Charlie finds the costs of being insured exceed its benefits. So how does the ACA impact his calculation? According to the Kaiser Foundation Health Care website, a bronze-level ACA plan for Charlie will cost him $2,542 a year. This is almost certainly more than what Charlie would pay for equivalent coverage pre-ACA. The ACA mandates the young to overpay for health insurance so that the older folks can be allowed to underpay. The premium in the above-quoted figure reflects this intention. If Charlie doesn’t want health

insurance at lower pre-ACA premiums, why will he want it at higher post-ACA premiums? Intergenerational cost shifting, a central component of the ACA, gives Charlie less of an incentive to buy insurance. But there is a second reason why the structure of the ACA actually reduces Charlie’s incentive to buy: He can sign up for health insurance after the fact. The ACA forbids insurance companies from discriminating based on pre-existing conditions. The designers of the ACA knew these two facts, and incorporated a tax for not buying health insurance into the ACA, a tax that clearly generates an incentive to buy insurance. But is it enough? For Charlie the tax for not buying will be $350 in 2014, rise to $700 in 2015 and then to $875 in 2016. The ACA premium is 5.6 percent of his income, the tax for not buying is .8 — 1.9 percent of his income. Charlie saves $1,667 — $2,192 or around 3.7 percent (4.8 percent of his gross income) if he does not buy health insurance under the ACA. Moreover, he

can continue to accrue these savings and then sign up for insurance if and when his health deteriorates. One is hard-pressed to give a plausible economic reason why Charlie as situated above would change his mind and buy insurance under the ACA. Granted, if Charlie’s income is a lot more, say in six figures, the tax he owes for not buying will be greater, making it more likely he buys. If his income is a lot less, say $20,000, available government subsidies make him more likely to opt for an insurance purchase. But we suspect the richer Charlies are already buying insurance and the poorer Charlies are a net fiscal drain to the ACA. So this seems clear: The ACA reduces the incentive to buy insurance for the many of the very folks needed to make it work.

Pope is religious — not political — leader WASHINGTON — We have reached a new level of political absurdity when the right is mad at the pope and the left wants to anoint his head with oil. Everyone seems to have his own special version of Pope Francis. Liberals have declared him a crusader for social justice, especially regarding his comments about global inequality. Conservatives fear he just might be a commie. To briefly recap, Pope Francis has hit two hot buttons: He has questioned the efficacy of “unfettered” free markets and has encouraged de-emphasizing the church’s positions on such divisive issues as gays and abortion. The latter message, while loving and refreshing, is more complex than an “I’m OK, You’re OK” platitude. He never proposes changing church teachings but merely suggests that the church should be open to all. You can’t minister to people if you won’t let them in the door. And no one follows a wagging finger. “Frequently we act as arbiters of grace rather than its facilitators,” Pope Francis writes. “But the church is not a tollhouse; it is … a place for everyone, with all their problems.” He also makes frequent reference to the unborn, but in the context of a throwaway culture that acts as though certain people don’t exist or

can be easily discarded, as in the unborn or the elderly. The message relating to the financial world similarly targeted the collateral human damage of “unfettered” markets. This is by-the-book Christianity, hardly the moorings of heresy. Yet, these Christian KATHLEEN sentiments have sent some conservatives PARKER reeling to the fainting couch. Upon reading the pope’s words about greed and inequality, Rush Limbaugh threw down the word “Marxist” like an overcooked rib-eye. The pontiff’s words, said the man of many words, was “just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope.” Now seems a good time to step back and consider what so often eludes us in our rush to pontificate: Context, context, context. Both Karl Marx and Pope Francis may have critiqued our idolatry of money as creating an “economy of exclusion and inequality,” as Francis described the global economic system in his “Evangelii Gaudium” (The Joy of the

Gospel). But Marx was making an economic statement and Francis was making a theological one. Christianity is based on Christ, while Marxism advocates abolition of religion and acceptance of atheism. One receives grace and performs acts of charity; the other abjures grace and systematizes penury. Next comes Adam Shaw, news editor for and a Catholic, who wrote that the pope is like Obama — the worst invective a good conservative can hurl this side of “You’re a tool of Satan!” “Just like President Obama loved apologizing for America, Pope Francis likes to apologize for the Catholic Church, thinking that the church is at its best when it is passive and not offending anyone’s sensibilities,” wrote Shaw. Both men, he implies, “pander to enemies,” and are “professional grievance mongers.” And so on. Pray, where does one see passivity in Pope Francis? The man is an activist, a street worker, a foot washer and evangelizer. There’s nothing passive or pandering about him. And it would appear that Francis is quite willing to offend sensibilities. It is useful to remember that Jesus wasn’t only a carpenter’s son but a radical who turned the tables on the status quo. Likewise Francis — a Christian

right down to his sensible black leather shoes, the better to walk the walk and sneak out at night to minister to Rome’s homeless. What set off conservatives was the pope’s criticism of “trickle-down” economic theory that places absolute faith in markets to be humane and fair. Conservatives argue correctly that capitalism has done more to raise millions from poverty than any other system. And they well remember the fusion of Marxism and Christianity called “liberation theology” that seeks to redistribute wealth. But the pope never mentions redistribution. He is challenging our idolatry of money and obsession with things (I confess!), a cultural fascination that distracts us from the needy. What is the successor to St. Peter supposed to do when he sees so much suffering even in free-market societies? Quote Ayn Rand? In a final contextual note, Francis is the pope, not the president. Like Jiminy Cricket, he is urging people to let their conscience be their guide. No one, Christian or otherwise, can escape the mirror he holds up, his eyes doubtless twinkling in anticipation of his next moonlight adventure, searching for souls in need.

GM has first woman CEO

Town sells SUV once used by Palin ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska community’s sale on eBay of a vehicle used by former Mayor Sarah Palin has caused a stir in small-town politics. The city of Wasilla, just north of Anchorage, auctioned off the 1999 Expedition used by Palin during her second term as mayor on the website. A Fairbanks woman bought it for $10,300, about $8,000 over its value. The city will use the money to replenish its vehicle replacement fund. But Deputy Mayor Colleen Sullivan-Leonard proposed using the funds to restock the local food pantry. That proposal died Monday when Mayor Verne Rupright declined to break a 3-3 council tie. Sullivan-Leonard says it’s unfortunate Rupright is capitalizing on Palins’ name to fatten city coffers. Rupright says it’s just good business when you can get more money than expected for surplus equipment.

DiGiorno drops cheese supplier after animal abuse MILWAUKEE (AP) — Top-selling frozen pizza brand DiGiorno and its cheese supplier cut ties with a Wisconsin dairy farm Tuesday after an animal rights group released undercover video showing workers beating, kicking, stabbing and whipping sick and injured cows. Wiese Brothers Farm owner Mark Wiese told The Associated Press that he fired two employees and assigned another to duties that don’t involve handling animals after seeing the video. Wiese, who owns the 5,000-cow farm in Greenleaf with his brother, said he was not aware of the abuse until late last month. “My brother and I and our families are just very, very shook up about the whole incident,” he said Tuesday. “And we’re just going to continue to complete our investigation and make sure changes are made if needed and make our business stronger and better.” The farm sold its milk to Foremost Farms. Foremost supplies cheese to DiGiorno, which is owned by Nestle USA. Nestle said in a statement that it had asked Foremost Farms not to send it cheese made from Wiese Brothers Farm milk. Foremost Farms said it had stopped buying from Wiese Brothers on Monday. Wiese Brothers also faces an investigation by the local sheriff’s department. A captain there said he couldn’t comment on the details. An activist with Mercy For Animals shot the video while working on the farm in October and November.

People • ‘Glee’ star set for release of album NEW YORK (AP) — Thanks to her role on Fox’s “Glee,” Lea Michele is no stranger to recording music. Now she’s ready to launch her solo music career. The 27-year-old will release her debut album, Michele “Louder,” on March 4. In a press release, Michele says the album is a reflection of her “experiences over this past year” and her “journey as an artist up to this point.” The first single, “Cannonball,” written by Sia, is available for download. On “Glee,” Michele plays Rachel Berry, a college student in New York City who dreams of becoming a famous Broadway star.



Officials wheel in two children, part of a group of six people taken to Pershing General Hospital after being lost for

two days in the frigid mountains near Lovelock, Nev., Tuesday.

Search team finds people stranded in Nevada cold RENO, Nev. (AP) — A desperate search for a couple and four children missing for two days in the below-zero cold of Nevada’s rugged mountains turned jubilant Tuesday when rescuers guided in part by cellphone signals and footprints in the snow found them alive and well near their overturned Jeep. About 200 people had searched by land and air after the group of six failed to return Sunday from a trip to play in the snow near their hometown of Lovelock, in Nevada’s high desert. “They stayed together and that was the key that allowed them to live through this experience. You don’t see that that often in search and rescue,” said Paul Burke, search-and-rescue coordinator for the state. “They did some pretty unusual things, heating up rocks and things. Staying together, that was a big deal.” Their Jeep had overturned just off a road. A member of the rescue team said the engine would no longer start, but the group stayed in the upside-down

vehicle for shelter, burning the spare tire to keep warm. The six were taken to Pershing General Hospital, where about 100 well-wishers lined the street and broke into cheers when two of the smallest children were taken from an ambulance. Others walked into the hospital on their own. “The mood where I’m at’s ecstatic,” said Col. Tim Hahn of the Civil Air Patrol, which used several planes to search for the group. “We are thrilled beyond words.” Rescuers began scouring the Seven Troughs Area wilderness on Sunday night for James Glanton, 34; his girlfriend, Christina McIntee, 25; their two children, Evan and Chloe Glanton; and Shelby Fitzpatrick and Tate McIntee, a niece and nephew of McIntee’s. The children range in age from 3 to 10. The situation grew more dire as overnight temperatures in Lovelock dipped to 16 below zero. A cellphone forensics team analyzed which towers the group’s phone was in contact with during

their trip, giving searchers a better idea of where they might be, Hahn said. They were so far out in the wilderness that they apparently were unable to call for help. Search volunteer Chris Montes said he and two rescuers with him first spotted children’s footprints in the snow, then followed a set of Jeep tracks until they found the flipped vehicle and the family beside it. “They just said that they knew somebody was going to find them,” Montes said. The discovery prompted a wave of relief on social media. “Very glad to hear the missing family in Lovelock has been found and they are safe!” Gov. Brian Sandoval tweeted. “Thank you to all who worked so tirelessly to find them!” The Seven Troughs area is named for seven parallel canyons below Seven Trough Peak, elevation 7,474 feet. It is about 20 miles southeast of Black Rock Desert, where the annual Burning Man counterculture festival is held.

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors picked Mary Barra, its product development chief and a 33-year company veteran, as its next CEO. She will become the first female head of a major U.S. car company. GM said Tuesday that Barra, 51, will replace Dan Akerson on Jan. 15. Akerson, 65, chairman and CEO, moved up his retirement plans by several months because his wife, Karin, is battling an advanced form of cancer. “I need to spend all my time and energy in fighting this disease with my wife,” Akerson said on a conference call with reporters. Akerson had originally planned to stay into the spring or summer. Since February 2011 Barra has held what many say is the most important job at GM — senior vice president for global product development. Barra, who joined GM in 1980, is currently in charge of design, engineering and quality for all of GM’s vehicles across the globe and has shepherded most of the company’s recent new vehicle introductions. Under her command, GM rolled out brawny new full-size pickup trucks, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, and the Chevrolet Impala full-size car, which earned the highest score for a sedan in testing by Consumer Reports magazine. Its quality scores also rose in surveys conducted by J.D. Power and Associates. She also led development of the new Chevrolet Corvette and several new Cadillac models. Akerson took over GM in September 2010, as the company prepared to go public about a year after emerging from bankruptcy protection. During his tenure GM has made billions of dollars in profits and is sitting on $26.8 billion in cash. Its profit margins in North America are a healthy 9 percent. He and Barra

have revamped GM’s lineup of cars and trucks. On Monday, GM officially shed the derisive moniker of “Government Motors” when the government sold the last of the GM shares it inherited as part of a bailout in 2008 and 2009. But Barra still needs to trim GM’s costs and win over buyers in markets such as India and South America. One big step in getting there: producing more vehicles that can be sold in multiple markets, such as the Chevrolet Cruze compact car. The choice of Barra was unanimous, Akerson said, because of her breadth of experience, management and people skills and her understanding of GM’s operations. The GM board considered only internal candidates. “This is an executive who has a vision of where she wants to take the organization,” he said, adding that Barra took over product development when it was in chaos not long after GM emerged from bankruptcy protection. Akerson hinted at the move earlier this year when he told a women’s business group in Detroit that a “car gal” would run one of the Detroit Three automakers someday soon.

Rule approved to restrict high-risk trading WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. banks will be barred in most cases from trading for their own profit under a federal rule approved Tuesday. The Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. each unanimously voted to adopt the so-called Volcker Rule, taking a major step toward preventing extreme risk-taking on Wall Street that helped trigger the 2008

financial crisis. Three other regulators were expected to follow suit Tuesday. Congress instructed regulators to draft the rule under the 2010 financial overhaul law. The rule was agreed to after three years of drafts, debates and lobbying by Wall Street banks. The final version is stricter than many had expected and are intended

to prevent risky trading that required taxpayer-funded bailouts during the crisis. But the rule still provides some exemptions. At its heart, the rule seeks to ban banks from almost all proprietary trading. The practice of trading for their own profit has been very lucrative for big banks like JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup. The rule also limits banks’ investments in

While still tech-heavy, it’s more diverse, reasonably valued and loaded with profitable companies, investors say. “The Nasdaq is very different, in every measureable, quantifiable way, than it was,” says Gavin Baker, who manages nearly $10 billion in assets for the Fidelity OTC fund. Technology companies make up a smaller percentage of the index, roughly 42 percent, compared with 56 percent 13 years ago. The telecom industry is a little less than 2 percent, compared with 18 percent back then. And consumer-focused companies such as are a much bigger part of the index, making up 22 percent, compared with basically zero in March 2000. The Nasdaq recently passed the 4,000 mark, a level last seen in September of 2000.

include the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Treasury Department’s Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. The largest U.S. banks — those with $50 billion or more in assets— will be required to fully comply with the terms of the rule by July 2015. Other banks will have until 2016 to comply.

A Patriotic Christmas

Nasdaq still not at dot-com peak NEW YORK (AP) — It takes a long time to recover from a bad hangover, especially when you party like it’s 1999. The Nasdaq Composite is up 35 percent this year, but while other major indexes like the Dow Jones industrial average and Standard & Poor’s 500 have celebrated all-time highs again and again, the Nasdaq remains 20 percent below its dot-com peak of 5,048.62. That’s a good thing because the biggest beneficiary of the late 90s internet mania was also its biggest victim. After cresting on March 10, 2000, the index lost nearly 80 percent of its value over the next two years, touching bottom on Oct. 9, 2002 at 1,114.11. The Dow fell 27 percent over the same period, and the S&P 500 dropped 44 percent. Even as it soars faster than other indexes, the Nasdaq isn’t what it was.

hedge funds. Still, the final version allows proprietary trading when it is done to facilitate buying and selling investment for customers. That is known as market-making. Also exempted from the ban are cases when a bank underwrites a securities offering, and for trading in U.S. government, state and local bonds. The other three agencies voting for the rule

Boyfriend’s ex won’t have unbiased opinion DEAR ABBY: I’m considering marrying a man who is divorced. We get along great, and I love and trust him. Is it ever appropriate to call the ex and discuss her side of the story?

Also, the things the ex might consider to be flaws may be the qualities you love best about him.

Insulin injections virtually painless today Insulin can’t be taken as a pill; it must be taken by injection or with an insulin pump. (Insulin pumps are generally reserved for people with Type 1 diabetes.) A diabetes educator will teach you how to measure, prepare and administer the injections. The ASK DOCTOR K. equipment available today makes Dr. Anthony injections virtually The Komaroff painless. needles are very small; you barely feel them when they pierce your skin. Most people use syringes or insulin “pens.” A pen injector uses disposable needles and insulin cartridges.

It’s portable and discreet, and it provides multiple accurate doses without your needing to measure and fill syringes. There are several formulations of insulin. They vary based on how quickly they start working, how long it takes for the insulin to peak and how long it remains active. Different types of insulin can be used alone or in combination. The type of insulin and how much and how often you use it varies from person to person. You’ll work with your doctor or diabetes educator to develop an individualized insulin program. Your goal is to maintain a blood sugar level that’s as close to normal as possible without having your blood sugar dip too low. Low blood sugar can have dangerous consequences of its own. If the sugar goes too low, you can become tired, confused and disoriented. You can even lose consciousness.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have to start taking insulin for my Type 2 diabetes. It sounds complicated. What do I need to know before I start? DEAR READER: The first thing you need to know is that it is simple to learn and do, and the discomfort is minimal. Tens of millions of people all over the world do it every day — and probably most of them were afraid that it would be complicated and painful before they actually started taking insulin. Insulin is a natural hormone that lowers blood sugar in all of us. In people with diabetes, the body no longer can make enough insulin to keep the blood sugar level normal. Doctors usually recommend insulin for people with Type 2 diabetes when diet, exercise and pills cannot keep blood sugar levels low enough. Insulin lowers blood sugar levels more effectively than any other available diabetes drug.

argument, which it probably will.

Your blood sugar level is affected both by what you eat and how much insulin you take. Most people on insulin or other diabetes medicines check their own blood sugar levels with simple home kits. The doctor may recommend adjustments in the dose of insulin based on these blood levels. You’ll learn to manage your blood sugar by testing your blood once or twice a day to determine whether you need to adjust your insulin dose. You’ll use a glucose meter to do the testing; that’s standard equipment for most people with diabetes. You can refrigerate insulin or store it at room temperature. But don’t freeze it. Also, discard insulin that has expired or looks cloudy or otherwise strange. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is:

Death toll climbing in Africa Local officials take lead on preparedness

BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) — More than 500 people have been killed over the past week in sectarian fighting in Central African Republic, aid officials said Tuesday, as France reported that gunmen fatally shot two of its soldiers who were part of the intervention to disarm thousands of rebels accused of attacking civilians. Aid workers have collected 461 bodies across the capital of Bangui since Thursday, Antoine Mbao Bogo with the local Red Cross said. But that latest figure does not include the scores of Muslim victims whose bodies were brought to mosques for burial. The government of the predominantly Christian country was overthrown in March by Muslim rebels from the country’s north. While the rebels claimed no religious motive for seizing power, months of resentment and hostility erupted last week in a wave of violence. The French deaths came as French President Francois Hollande arrived for a visit to France’s former colony, heading into the tumultuous capital after attending a memorial in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The casualties underscore the volatility of the mission to disarm combatants and bring stability to a largely anarchic capital riven by sectarian violence. A mob on Monday stoned to death a suspected enemy in the street, and armed fighters have abducted and killed hospital patients. Tensions flared again Tuesday as a mob of young men set fire to a mosque in the Fou neighborhood of the capital, Bangui. Smoke billowed from smoldering vehicles nearby, and young

WASHINGTON (AP) — When it comes to climate change, local officials have a message for Washington: Lead or get out of the way. Local governments have long acted as first responders in emergencies and now are working to plan for sea level rise, floods, hurricanes and other extreme events associated with climate change. As a presidential task force began its work Tuesday, local officials said they want and need federal support but worried that congressional gridlock and balky bureaucratic rules too AP often get in the way. Suspected member of a Christian with grenades and turned him over “Government, whether militia, Sincere Banyodi, 32, lays to French forces.

House announced that John Podesta, a former chief of staff under President Bill Clinton, will join Obama’s inner circle, focusing on energy and climate change issues. Dixson, a task force member and a Republican, called climate resilience a key part of environmental stewardship. Neither issue should be partisan, he said, nor should it be left to the federal government. “It has to come from the community level,” he said. “It can’t be an edict from the Beltway.” Greensburg’s population has shrunk from about 1,500 people to 850 since the tornado, but Dixson said the town is thriving, even as it continues to recover. Federal assistance also was crucial after a massive flood in Colorado in September destroyed nearly 2,000 homes, washed out hundreds of miles of roads and left many small mountain towns completely cut off. But even as cities and towns relied on the National Guard and other federal help in the storm’s immediate aftermath, local leaders said the disaster illustrated problems with a one-size-fits-all approach. In Fort Collins, Colo., for instance, nearly three dozen federal agencies were involved in fixing a road destroyed by a mudslide. “Half said, ‘No, it can’t be fixed,’” said Fort Collins Mayor Karen Weitkunat. “The other half said, ‘Go ahead, that’s a problem that needs to be resolved.’”

Younger women drawing closer to men in earnings WASHINGTON (AP) — Young American women are increasingly likely to receive pay nearly equal to their male counterparts, with earnings at 93 percent of men, a new study finds. Still, those women remain as pessimistic as their mothers and grandmothers regarding gender equality. A report for release Wednesday by the Pew Research Center paints a mixed picture. While women under 32 now have higher rates of college completion than men that age, the analysis of census and labor data shows their hourly earnings will slip further behind by

the women’s mid-30s, if the experience of the past three decades is a guide. That widening gap is due in part to the many women who take time off or reduce their hours to start families. Other factors cited in the report are gender stereotyping, discrimination, weaker professional networks and women’s hesitancy to aggressively push for raises and promotions, which together may account for 20 to 40 percent of the pay gap. In all, 75 percent of women ages 18-32 say the U.S. needs to do more to bring about equality in the workplace, a percentage

similar to baby boomer women ages 49-67 and higher than other age groups. Some 57 percent of young men answered that way. Even so, just 15 percent of young women say they have been discriminated against because of their gender. “Today’s generation of young women is entering the labor force near parity with men in terms of earnings and extremely well prepared in terms of their educational attainment,” said Kim Parker, associate director with the Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project. “They feel empowered in many ways,

yet when they look at the workplace, they see it as a ‘man’s world’ with the deck stacked against them.” “They think that men earn more than women for doing the same job and that it’s easier for men to get top executive jobs than it is for women,” she said. Women are increasingly moving into higher career positions both in government and business. They make up nearly half the workforce, and the share of women in managerial and administrative occupations is nearly equal to that of men — 15 percent compared to 17 percent. Another landmark came

Tuesday, when General Motors picked Mary Barra, a 33-year company veteran, as the first female head of a major U.S. car company. Still, women currently hold just 4.5 percent of Fortune 1000 CEO positions, the Pew report said. Andrew Cherlin, a sociology professor at Johns Hopkins University, attributed young women’s negative assessments about gender equality to their rising career expectations. “More doors are now open to women, but they can now see how far they are from equality in high-level jobs,” he said. The near-equal pay for young women is being

driven in large part by their educational gains. Some 38 percent of women ages 25-32 now hold bachelor’s degrees, compared to 31 percent of young men. As a result, 49 percent of employed workers with at least a bachelor’s degree last year were women, up from 36 percent in 1980. That means more women in higher-skilled, higherpaying positions. The current ratio of hourly earnings for young women to young men, now at 93 percent, is up from 67 percent in 1980 and is the highest in government records dating back to at least 1979.
