Rodeo bull charged at firefighters GOOD MORNING Coe running for Albion council Leslie W. “Les” Coe has signed up to run in the Republican primary for one of the two seats on the Albion Town Council. Due to incorrect information provided to The News Sun, a story in Tuesday’s edition said Coe was running for a different office.

Student, 12, shoots two classmates at New Mexico school ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — A 12-year-old New Mexico boy drew a shotgun from a band-instrument case and shot and wounded two classmates at his middle school Tuesday morning before a teacher talked him into dropping the weapon and he was taken into custody, officials and witnesses said. Gov. Susana Martinez says a boy was critically injured and a girl was in serious condition following the shooting at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell. The students were in the gym, where she said they typically hang out before classes start during cold and inclement weather. The 12-year-old pulled a shotgun and opened fire there at about 8 a.m. But he was “quickly stopped by one staff member who walked right up to him and asked him to set down the firearm, which he did,” Martinez said. Officials at University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, say an 11-yearold boy was flown there in critical condition and a 13-year-old girl was en route in serious condition. Information from nurses treating the boy indicates he was the shooter’s target, hospital spokesman Eric Finley said. There was some confusion about the boy’s age, but Finley said his parents told the hospital he is 11. The governor says a staff member received very minor injuries but declined medical care because he wanted to stay and help.

Animal put down after search, pursuit BY BOB BRALEY

KENDALLVILLE — An escaped rodeo bull charged members of the Kendallville Fire Department on a frozen lake surface before it was destroyed Monday, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. Noble County E-911 Dispatch received calls starting about 5:25 p.m. that an animal described as a rodeo bull with large horns was loose. The animal had freed itself from a pen as it was being readied for transport from a

location on C.R. 1000N, west of S.R. 3. According to Noble County E-911 dispatch reports, bull owner Kolton Bode said he was trying to load the bull into a trailer when it got loose. The animal was spotted on S.R. 3 one-half mile north of C.R. 1000N. Emergency personnel, including Kendallville firefighters, were called to the area. Firefighters were the first to arrive. Firefighters found the bull on frozen Cree Lake as they approached from Cree Lake Drive South. The bull was walking east. Firefighters tried to guide the bull, but it began to charge at them, then walked and ran east into wooded areas.

“We got the call as a cow on the ice on Cree Lake,” said Kendallville Fire Chief Mike Riehm. “While on my way, I learned it was a rodeo bull.” The bull didn’t want any part of people, according to Riehm, adding, “He was mean. He wouldn’t let anyone get close. We were 50 to 60 yards from him when he charged us, and we ran.” The sheriff’s department and firefighters set up a perimeter to find the bull. The Noble County Emergency Management Agency contacted Black Pine Animal Sanctuary to try to set a tranquilizer for the bull. The bull wasn’t seen again until about 7 p.m., when firefighters saw it crossing C.R.

900E north of C.R. 1000N. It continued north through a snow-covered field. Deputies began to track the bull. The owner felt it necessary to have the bull put down due to its aggressive behavior, the length of the tracking and the time of night, the sheriff’s department said. After tracking the bull through multiple fields and wooded areas, search teams found it again south of C.R. 1125N in a field west of C.R. 1000E. Attempts to get close were negated either by the bull’s aggressive behavior or because it ran from people. The animal was put down at about 7:45 p.m., the sheriff’s department said.

State of the State



Indiana Gov. Mike Pence walks to the podium to give his State of the State address to a joint

session of the Legislature at the Statehouse Tuesday in Indianapolis.

Pence keeps it simple Business tax cut, marriage amendment highlight State of the State INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Republican Gov. Mike Pence held close to a carefully scripted message for 2014 during his second State of the State address, prodding lawmakers for a business tax cut and education items while asking them to take action on a controversial marriage amendment this year. Pence offered little in the way of new details Tuesday, sticking to what has become a defining hands-off approach with lawmakers and his legislative agenda. Instead, he asked them for a second year largely focused on continuing the same strategy of cutting taxes and expanding sweeping education changes. “We’ve made progress in jobs and schools, but with still too many Hoosiers out of work,” Pence said. “With our state lagging behind in per capita income and health and too many kids in underperforming schools, I

believe we must remain relentless, bold and ambitious to keep our state moving forward.” Although Pence left a proposed constitutional ban on gay marriage out of his formal agenda, he asked lawmakers to put the issue to rest in 2014. “Let’s have a debate worthy of our people with civility and respect. Let’s protect the rights of Hoosier employers to hire who they want and provide them with benefits that they earn. And then let’s resolve this issue this year once and for all,” he said, to applause from the assembled lawmakers, a majority of whom are Republicans. Pence spoke before a joint session of House and Senate members held in the House chamber. Just one day earlier in the same space, a key House panel delayed a vote on the marriage amendment following hours of emotional testimony on the issue.

Lawmakers first approved the proposed constitutional ban in 2011. It must pass again this year to be put to voters in November. If lawmakers don’t act, the process of amending the constitution would start from scratch. House Minority Leader Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City, said Pence had a chance to “douse the flames” on the gay marriage debate, but did not. Instead, Pelath said, the governor seemed more concerned about protecting his political career — noting the marriage issue could cloud his chances if it shows up with him on a potential 2016 ballot. “He wants finality before the 2016 election. That’s what he really means,” he said. Pelath criticized Pence for offering “small, symbolic solutions” to real problems such as low wages and unemployment. “Mike Pence believes a SEE PENCE, PAGE A6

Albion company adding six jobs BY BOB BRALEY

ALBION — An Albion machining operation plans to add six jobs, the Albion Town Council learned Tuesday. The council voted 4-0 to approve a tax abatement for B & J Specialty on $310,000 in used equipment purchased from Wisconsin and new to Indiana. A statement of benefits for the abatement says the equipment is projected to add six jobs with an average yearly salary of $35,000 each. The equipment would be used in computer-numeric-controlled machining work at the Albion plant. The Albion Tax Abatement Committee recommended that property taxes on the equipment be phased in over five years. The council agreed to that recommen-

dation 4-0. Also Tuesday, the council: • elected Mitch Fiandt as its president and re-elected Chris Magnuson as vice president. Fiandt is in the last year of his current term and has announced he will not seek re-election. • made appointments to various positions. Three department heads were reappointed — John Forker as water and waste water superintendent, Mark Tarlton as street and cemetery superintendent and Casey Myers as parks superintendent. Myers was reappointed to the Region III-A Board of Directors, and Fiandt as representative to the Noble County Emergency Management Agency. Also reappointed were Albion Redevelopment Commission members Tim Christopher and Wanda Truelove.

Town attorney Mike Yoder’s contract was renewed with no changes. Shellie Porter was selected for a four-year term on the Albion Economic Development Commission. She replaces Richard Magnuson, who decided not to seek reappointment. • received word of Fiandt’s appointment as council president. Fiandt reappointed Steve Lemish to the Albion Plan Commission, Darold Smolinske to the Albion Park Board and David Bremer to the Albion Board of Zoning Appeals. Each appointment is for a four-year term. Fiandt also reappointed four members of the Albion Redevelopment Commission to one-year terms — Tina Craft, Duane Simpson, David Fiandt and John McGill.

KENDALLVILLE — Fire and water recently damaged the East Noble Middle School building. A fire in the heating system damaged two East Noble Middle School classrooms Tuesday morning, four days after a water pipe burst Friday flooding the school’s gymnasium and main office area. No students were in the school at the time of either incident. At about 7:23 a.m. Tuesday, firefighters and police were dispatched to the school at 401 E. Diamond St. after a staff person in the building pulled the fire alarm. A motor overheated in a heater in Room 301 in the 100-year-old part of the building, causing smoke on the third floor, said Kendallville Fire Chief Mike Riehm. The fire in the floor spread to the ceiling tile in Room 201 directly below on the second floor. Firefighters used fire extinguishers with pressurized water to attack the fire, and brought it under control in about 15 minutes. Portable fans were used to clear the smoke. No one was injured. Officials could not immediately estimate the cost of the damage. Police vehicles and fire trucks blocked Diamond, Riley and Sheridan streets around the school campus during the fire. The incident occurred before students were inside the building, said East Noble Superintendent Ann Linson. Students arriving for school were escorted by teachers and staff across Riley Street into the nearby St. John Lutheran School gym to get out of the below-freezing weather. Students arriving by bus were kept on the buses in a bus turnaround lot. Students were allowed into the building at about 8 a.m., and firefighters were back in service at 8:13 a.m. Students and staff were not in the building during Friday morning’s water pipe break because East Noble officials had called off classes due to snowy and icy road conditions. Firefighters responded to a water flow alarm at the school. A capped-off sprinkler pipe broke near the Riley Street entrance, flooding the gym floor and office area, damaging new carpeting and drywall in the offices, said Riehm. The pipe had been installed in the building as a backup in case of a fire, but no longer was needed because the fire department had access to nearby fire hydrants. The pipe had been capped. The rubber gym floor was not seriously damaged, Linson said. A contractor was called in to clean up the water damage. In a renovation project last summer, a handicapped-accessible entrance off Riley Street was converted into the school’s main entrance, and nearby space was made into administration offices. The East Noble School Board of Trustees is considering options for the building’s future, including renovation, replacing the oldest section or constructing a new middle school at a different site.

Hamilton principal resigns BY AARON ORGAN

HAMILTON — Hamilton Junior-Senior High School principal Christy Haupert will leave her position at the end of the school year, school district officials said Monday. The school board accepted Haupert’s resignation at its meeting Monday night. It is effective June 30, 2014 — the end of Haupert’s two-year contract. Superintendent Jon Willman would not comment on Haupert’s resignation, saying the

2 city councils urge gay marriage ban defeat SOUTH BEND. (AP) — Two more Indiana city councils are opposing efforts to write a gay marriage ban into the state constitution. The South Bend and Muncie councils both voted Monday night to adopt resolutions against the proposed constitutional amendment being considered by state legislators. The South Bend resolution was approved on a 6-2 vote, while the Muncie resolution was adopted in a 9-0 vote. South Bend Councilman Dave Varner, the council’s only Republican, said he voted against the resolution because he believed voters should be allowed to decide the issue in a statewide referendum. About 15 people spoke in favor of the resolution before the council voted, which didn’t sway Varner, the South Bend Tribune reported. “I don’t think the people here tonight are prepared to accept the results of a statewide referendum … because they probably know what the results are going to be,” Varner said. City councils in Indianapolis, Evansville and Bloomington and a bipartisan group of mayors from several cities have also spoken out against the proposed amendment. The House Judiciary Committee on Monday delayed a vote on following more than three hours of testimony from supporters and opponents. If legislators approve the amendment during this year’s session, it will go before voters on the November election ballot. Muncie Councilman Doug Marshall, a Democrat, said he sponsored the resolution because “I want it to be known nationally that Muncie is a city of everyone.”

Purdue seeks tuition freeze for third year WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue University President Mitch Daniels wants to extend the West Lafayette campus’ tuition freeze for at least one more year. Daniels says in a message posted Tuesday on Purdue’s website that he plans to ask Purdue’s trustees this spring to extend the tuition freeze for a third year. He announced a two-year tuition freeze last March. It keeps in-state tuition at about $10,000 a year for 10,000 students on the main campus. Daniels says the school trustees’ May approval of the tuition freeze plan broke Purdue’s 36-year string of tuition hikes and was followed by student meal cost reductions.

district does not discuss personnel matters. Haupert, who usually attends board meetings but was not present Monday night, said later that she enjoyed her time at Hamilton working with students, parents and staff. She said she is looking forward to continuing her career in education or a related field. The school board hired Haupert in July 2012. It completed a restructuring of the administration that saw former K-12 principal Barbara Weber reassigned

as elementary principal and the hiring of current Athletics Director and Assistant Principal Jesse Webb. Board president Scott Lucas said by accepting the resignation, the school district now can advertise for applicants for the position. Also Monday, the board held its annual reorganization meeting, and each current officer was re-elected. Lucas will serve as president, Robert Gaff as vice president and Lee Stoy as secretary.

Charlie White sentence on hold NOBLESVILLE (AP) — An attorney for former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White says he won’t have to serve his one-year home detention sentence while he appeals his voter fraud conviction. Defense attorney Andrea Ciobanu said a Hamilton County judge has granted a motion to put on hold the

sentence stemming from the February 2012 convictions that forced White from office. Ciobanu told The Indianapolis Star she’s waiting on trial transcripts before filing arguments with the state appeals court. White had been scheduled to start serving home detention last week.

Teen charged in fatal fire NEW ALBANY (AP) — Authorities say a New Albany house fire where three young children died began when a teenager fired a flare into the home in a property dispute with one of the residents. Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson said Tuesday that 18-year-old Cody Cashion of New Albany faces three counts of murder and one count of arson resulting in injury. The Jan. 4 fire caused the smoke inhalation deaths of 2-year-old Trinity Hughes, 4-year-old Tyrese Hughes and 6-year-old Tai’zah Hughes. A fourth child, 5-year-old Taty’ana Hughes, was rescued by firefighters and remains hospitalized in Indianapolis. Cashion already was in custody facing charges including attempted murder of a police officer after allegedly crashing his car into a police cruiser on Jan. 8.

Great Lakes cleanup funded TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — A spending bill crafted by congressional leaders would allocate $300 million to a Great Lakes cleanup that had been threatened with a massive cut during last year’s budget fight, supporters said Tuesday. The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is a program dealing with some of the lakes’ most serious environmental problems such as invasive species, loss of wetlands and other wildlife habitat, toxic pollution and runoff that causes algae blooms. It has gotten around $300 million in most years since funding began in 2010. But last year, a House subcommittee proposed slashing the 2014 allocation to just $60 million — an 80 percent cut that Great Lakes advocates said would gut the program, which has bipartisan support in Congress.

Indy aircraft company cuts jobs INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A company that runs an aircraft completion and maintenance center near Indianapolis International Airport expects that it will be permanently cutting the jobs of nearly 80 workers. Comlux America LLC has told the state Department of Workforce Development that the workers were laid off Jan. 3 because of a work slowdown. The Indianapolis Business Journal reports Comlux had more than 300 employees at the Indianapolis facility as of late October. The subsidiary of a Swiss company says it intended to recall the laid-off employees after two weeks, but now expects to permanently cut those jobs unless it lines up additional work or funding before the end of the month.


The Steuben County Rest Home, shown in this 2000 photo, could be razed by a contractor working on behalf of the county. The home, built in 1886, has

been used as a rest home and later as a work release center before that facility closed. The building has been vacant about five years.

Steuben County Commissioners eye razing old County Home BY MIKE MARTURELLO

ANGOLA — Steuben County Commissioners are studying the details of razing the old Steuben County Rest Home property on C.R. 200W near Interstate 69 that most recently was used as the county’s work release facility. “There’s so much to be done out there before we accept any of these bids,” said Gary Fair, county maintenance supervisor. The property sits on a 27-acre tract it shares with the Steuben County Humane Society and the Steuben County Highway Department. The former rest home has sat vacant for a number of years after work release was closed about five years ago. The rest home was closed in 1999 then was

converted to work release around 2000. Steuben County received an award from the Indiana Association of Counties for the conversion in 2001. Commissioner Jim Crowl said the county has offered the building for use to a number of agencies in the area but none have taken commissioners up on the offer. The cost of moving the building or selling it to a private individual wanting to rehabilitate it would be prohibitive, Crowl said. The building needs a new roof, which would be close to equal the cost of razing the structure, Crowl said. Quotes on the work ranged from about $80,000 to $189,000. Because of the cost, the work would have to follow state-sanctioned bidding procedures. The county would

potentially remove from the structure many items. Those would include items ranging from plaques hanging on walls to a boiler system that was put in when the facility was work release. Other items would also have to take place, such as capping the well and removing the building from a septic system that’s shared with the Humane Society animal shelter. Commissioner Ron Smith said the county needs to look to the future for possible use of the land. That could include commercial development. Smith said the county likely will work with the Steuben County Economic Development Corp. on determining a use for the property, which is in a prime location at the exit 150 off I-69.

6 selected for Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Walt Bogdanich and former Associated Press overseas bureau chief Earleen Fisher are among six people being inducted into the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame. The other inductees announced Tuesday are James Alexander Thom, an Owen County native best known for his 10 historical fiction novels; Ruth Chin, a pioneering Chinese-American photojournalist from Muncie; the late Lillian Thomas Fox, regarded as the first African-American writer for a white newspaper in the state; and Jim Hetherington, a journalist at WFBM-TV of Indianapolis, which is now WRTV, and book author. All six will be inducted during an April 26 ceremony at Indiana University’s Indiana Memorial Union in Bloomington. Bogdanich, who grew up in Gary, Ind., and graduated from Wallace High School, has won three Pulitzer Prizes for his investigative journalism.

He is now a member The New York Times’ investigations desk after previously working as an investigative producer for “60 Minutes” and ABC News and as a reporter for The Wall Street Journal. Fisher grew up in the northern Indiana town of Milford and was a reporter, editor and overseas bureau chief during more than 30 years with The Associated Press. Fisher joined the AP soon after graduating from Indiana University in 1968. Her career included reporting stops in Egypt, Lebanon and Israel before becoming the AP’s bureau chief in New Delhi and later chief of Middle East Services. Thom, a 1961 graduate of Butler University, started his career as a reporter and editor at The Indianapolis Star and wrote for other newspapers and magazines before turning to book writing full time. Several of his books focus on Native American culture, and the Shawnee nation has made him a full member because of the accuracy of his portrayals. Chin began her photog-

raphy career in 1946, at her hometown Muncie Star at a time when few newspapers had female staff photographers. Her work included freelance photography for numerous publications and writing a weekly photography column for the Muncie newspaper for more than 30 years. Fox was a correspondent for the Freeman, a nationally prominent black newspaper, and a civic leader in Indianapolis before writing columns and feature stories in from 1900 to 1914 about the activities of black Hoosiers for The Indianapolis News. She died in 1917. Hetherington, an Indiana University graduate, was an editor and writer at the Louisville Times and the Indianapolis Times. He moved to broadcast journalism in 1963 at WFBM-TV, where he wrote and produced documentaries and daily editorials. He won several national awards for his reporting, which included the civil rights movement and the racial integration of schools.

Pence backs alternative business tax cut INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence is backing a House alternative to his call for the elimination of a local tax on business equipment. Pence said last month he would like to see the state’s business property tax phased out. After an outcry from local leaders, House Republican leaders proposed giving counties the choice of whether to

eliminate the tax. Pence Budget Chief Chris Atkins told members of the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday the governor is supporting the House plan. Senate Republicans have crafted a different measure that would eliminate the tax for most small businesses and cut the state’s corporate income tax instead.

Easy Cheesy Lasagna

Easy Cheesy Lasagna a hit with most families This lasagna recipe starts with a homemade tomato sauce and ends with layers of cheese and noodles. Plan ahead since the sauce needs to simmer more than an hour to marry all the yummy ingredients and the finished product needs to bake 50 minutes. Serve with garlic bread and a salad for a great meal. Easy Cheesy Lasagna 12 servings 1 pound sweet Italian sausage 3/4 pound lean ground beef 1/2 cup minced onion 2 cloves garlic, crushed 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes 2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste 2 (6.5 ounce) cans canned tomato sauce 1/2 cup water 2 tablespoons white sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil leaves 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 tablespoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 12 lasagna noodles 16 ounces ricotta cheese 1 egg 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 pound mozzarella cheese, sliced 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese Check All Add to Shopping List Directions In a Dutch oven, cook sausage, ground beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat until well browned. Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and water. Season with sugar, basil, fennel seeds, Italian seasoning, 1 tablespoon salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons parsley. Simmer, covered, for about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain noodles, and

rinse with cold water. In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese with egg, remaining parsley, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). To assemble, spread 1 1/2 cups of meat sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange 6 noodles lengthwise over meat sauce. Spread with one half of the ricotta cheese mixture. Top with a third of mozzarella cheese slices. Spoon 1 1/2 cups meat sauce over mozzarella, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers, and top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil: to prevent sticking, either spray foil with cooking spray, or make sure the foil does not touch the cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil, and bake an additional 25 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.

governor should do very little, and he’s succeeding,” Pelath said after the speech. “His solutions are simply not equal to the tasks ahead.” Pence asked lawmakers to support his plans to phase out the state’s business personal property tax, expand charter schools, launch a new scholarship program allowing low-income children to attend preschool and create a tax credit to promote adoption. The General Assembly’s

top Republicans — House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem David Long — sung the governor’s praises during a news conference following the speech. Both oversee supermajorities of Republicans in their respective chambers. “It was confirmation for my team that we have a lot of the same goals,” Bosma said. “Really all of us have the same goals. But we’re pointed in the same direction on some of those solutions as well, with road funding and focus on early childhood

education, continued smart tax reform and worker training.” Pence made no direct mention of the tensions this past fall involving Democratic schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz, his office and the members of the State Board of Education. Instead he thanked Ritz and the board members and led a standing ovation for Ritz. But in describing the state’s educational gains, he noted, “Working together, we’ve accomplished a lot.”

Hoosiers upend Wisconsin BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Tom Crean watched his young Hoosiers grow up Tuesday night. Stunned fans were overjoyed with the results. The turnovers and fouls were down. The defense improved and the Hoosiers did more than just play for pride — they protected their home court against a team that hadn’t lost all season. Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell scored 25 points, including two free throws with 18.1 seconds left, and freshman Stanford Robinson added a career-best 13 before grabbing the final rebound on a missed 3-pointer to preserve Indiana’s 75-72 upset over No. 3 Wisconsin — a win that sent students streaming onto the court. “The program has had a lot of big wins. To the team, it means a great deal,” Crean said. “To me, the team needs this. I mean we had a long week from Michigan State to Penn State but we’ve gotten a lot better, and we got a lot better the last couple of days. It’s amazing what happens when some real confidence starts to come.” The postgame celebration exemplified how critical the win was to a team that has been mostly inconsistent. Until Saturday’s win at Penn State, the Hoosiers had beaten only one power conference foe — Washington — way back in November. Now they have two straight wins over Big Ten foes, taking down a team that had given it nothing but fits for seven years. Wisconsin (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) entered the night as one of the nation’s last four unbeaten teams and was trying to become the first team to ever win 13 straight over Indiana. The tale of the tape appeared to be stacked against the Hoosiers,

too. Somehow, though, Indiana (12-5, 2-2) responded with its best

performance of the season. It committed only nine turnovers, limited Wisconsin to

East Noble swimming

four free throws and somehow managed to dig itself out from a 10-point second-half deficit with a remarkable 12-0 run that gave the Hoosiers the lead for good. “We’ve come very far, had a lot of early losses, but I felt like we learned from watching film,” said Ferrell, a sophomore who has emerged as Indiana’s top scorer. “We’ve been working hard in practice, but we’re not going to be content with it.” Nor should they be. While Ferrell and Robinson led the way, only two other players — senior Will Sheehey and freshman Noah Vonleh reached double figures. Sheehey had 13 points, Vonleh 11. They lost the rebounding battle 33-28 and allowed the Badgers to shoot 53.3 percent from the field. They also struggled to defend Wisconsin guard Traevon Jackson, who had 16 of his career-high 21 in the second half. But it was the more experienced Badgers who got out of sorts late. Jackson missed a 3 from the top of the key with 12 seconds to go. Josh Gasser grabbed the rebound and flipped the ball out to Ben Brust in the corner, who rushed his shot with 5 seconds left and came up short. “When the clock’s ticking in your head like that, he felt like there were two seconds to go or three,” Badgers coach Bo Ryan said. “Also he felt that he needed to get the shot up in case the first touch from 3-point range is the call. There was actually just under four seconds left when the ball came down.” All five Badgers starters scored in double figures — Brust had 13, Gasser and Frank Kaminsky both had 11 and Sam Dekker finished with 10.

Cougar girls advance in NECC tournament BY JEFF JONES

BUTLER — Aggressive board play, especially in the second and fourth quarters, propelled the Central Noble Cougars to a 42-29 win over the Eastside Blazers in Northeast Corner Conference tournament action at Butler Tuesday. The Cougars (4-7) will play Fremont at 6 p.m. tonight in the first game at Eastside. Eastside’s boys will face Fremont in the second game. “We didn’t have too many practices last week because of the weather, and it was kind of sloppy at times, but I was pretty pleased overall,” said Cougar coach Lynford Yoder. “We did a very good job going after rebounds.” Central Noble held a 36-26 rebounding advantage for the

night. Junior Tricia VanGessel, who finished with 12 rebounds, had three putback scores on the night, including two in the second quarter when the Cougars increased their lead to 11 at one juncture. Senior Kennedy Forker was steady all night, finishing with a game-high 14 points. In the fourth, freshman Courtney Freeman provided a boost with six points that denied any thoughts of an Eastside comeback. “Our focus was on (Maddy) Minehart because it’s a difficult match-up for us,” Yoder said. “She’s physical and she’s a good player. We also wanted to put some pressure on their guards.” The Cougar defense kept Minehart — who finished with seven points and 10 rebounds —

in check most of the night. The Cougars led 28-16 following a bucket by Tiffany Simcox midway through the third. Eastside (2-11) rallied late in the period. Minehart scored inside, and senior Leah Ward cashed in from the lane late to cut the margin to eight. Later, senior Kaci Shook sank two free throws and added another in the opening minute of the fourth, bringing Eastside within 29-23. A clutch rebound bucket by VanGessel sparked an 8-0 Cougar run that put the game away. Minehart, Shook and Brianna Moore had seven points each for the Blazers. Eastside was just 10-of-41 (24 percent) from the field. Central Noble was 19-of-48 (40 percent) on its field goal tries.

Pacers beat Kings, clinch spot for Vogel INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — There’s something about teams on a hot streak that makes the Indiana Pacers want to beat them. Don’t expect to leave with momentum after playing in Indianapolis. “It’s a different story when you come to play here,” Paul George said. “Whatever you’ve done previously, when a team comes in hot, we make that commitment that it’s going to be tough to play here.” George scored 31 points, making four 3-pointers, to lead the Pacers to a 116-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night. David West had 16 points and eight rebounds, and Lance Stephenson added 13 points, five rebounds and five assists for the Pacers (30-7), who have won five of six. The victory clinched the Eastern Conference coaching spot for Frank Vogel, since the Pacers are guaranteed to have the best winning percentage in the conference through games of Feb. 2 with Miami’s Erik Spoelstra ineligible after coaching last year. “My name is on the release, but this is recognition of our team’s success,” Vogel said. “It’s a team honor and I’m really excited about it.” George was fouled driving to the basket with 8:36 remaining and converted the three-point play before Luis Scola made a free throw to cap off a 16-2 run in the fourth quarter. George sparked the big run for Indiana with a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Pacers an 86-74 lead at the end of the third quarter. The shot took away any hope the Kings (13-23) had left after Marcus Thornton made a 3 with seconds left to put

Sacramento within nine. George then opened the fourth with another 3-pointer. “Throughout our whole locker room we’ve built that culture as we’re going to be dominant at home,” George said. “And we’re working towards being that team on the road as well, but it’s just something about home that we just try to protect.”

The NBA’s top defensive team had little trouble against a Sacramento team that scored over 100 points in 18 of the previous 19 games and held the Kings to under 100 points for the first time in 12 games. Sacramento coach Mike Malone said taking care of the ball played a big role. Indiana forced 15 turnovers and

scored 22 points off the Kings’ mistakes. “To win on the road in the NBA against a great team, we cannot have the kind of turnovers we had,” he said. “They’re the No. 1 defensive team in the NBA for a reason.” And despite breaking away with 19 third-quarter points, DeMarcus Cousins, who finished

BUTLER — The name of the game at tournament time is advance. That’s just what the Eastside boys basketball team did, defeating the Central Noble Cougars 65-52 in Northeast Corner Conference tournament action at Butler Tuesday. The Blazers (5-5) will play Fremont, a 59-35 winner over Hamilton, in the second game tonight at Eastside. The Central Noble girls will face Fremont in the first game at 6 p.m. “The name of the game is to advance,” Eastside coach Ryan Abbott said afterwards. “This is the first time in four years we’ve been able to advance in the conference tournament, and that means something to our players.” The Blazers got contributions from all eight players who saw action, with seven figuring in the scoring. Senior Ryan Liechty and junior P.J. Dean had 13 points each to lead the way. Senior Kadis Renier and junior Rob Singer had nine points each, and junior Ethan Moughler added eight. Freshman Cade Willard had seven and junior Austin Baker had six. Eastside got its transition game going late in the first quarter, with a rebound basket and score by Singer, a three by Liechty and a fast-break bucket by Renier, to lead 14-8 after one. The Blazers extended their lead to 13 late in the second on an inside score and later two free throws, all by Dean, to make it 29-16. The margin got to 14 on Singer’s three-point play early in the third, but by the end of the quarter, the Cougars were within 10, 42-34, following Connor McCoy’s rebound basket in the final minute. Central Noble (1-9) hung around, but got no closer than eight the rest of the way. McCoy, the lone senior for the Cougars, led all scorers with 24 points.

with 31 points and 13 rebounds, caused few problems for the Pacers. He scored 12 points in the first half, with just three defensive rebounds, before he scored nine of Sacramento’s first 13 to open the second half. “He was really the only one to go off,” Roy Hibbert said. “Everyone else was under their average, so I’m happy about that.” Rudy Gay, who finished with 12 points, was the only other player to reach double-figure scoring for the Kings, whose season-best, three-game winning streak was snapped. “I thought we reverted back to our old ways tonight,” Gay said. “We have to do a better job of proving we are a changed team.” Cousins picked up his third foul with 5:22 left in the third when Hibbert went up for a follow shot. Hibbert split from the line to give Indiana a 68-58 lead and Indiana kept just enough room. The Pacers host New York and the Los Angeles Clippers before making a trip to the West Coast for five games. Indiana didn’t waste any time taking a lead on the Kings, opening the game on an 11-2 run. Hibbert converted a three-point play, George Hill made a layup and George dunked before Stephenson and West scored to give the Pacers the early lead with 8:27 remaining in the first quarter. Then the Kings scored eight straight. The Kings went on a late 7-2 run, but West scored to give the Pacers a 59-45 halftime lead.

got after us. They play really hard and they’re very well-coached.” The Blazers were 21-of-54 (39 percent) from the field, but were 19-of-23 (83 percent) at the free throw line. The Cougars were 22-of-47 (47 percent) from the field, but just 7-of-20 (35 percent) at the stripe.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Nik Stauskas scored 13 of his 21 points in the second half, and Michigan remained unbeaten in Big Ten play with an 80-67 victory over Penn State on Tuesday night. The Wolverines (12-4, 4-0) led 47-45 when a 3-pointer by Stauskas started a 19-5 run that gave Michigan a comfortable advantage. Derrick Walton added 16 points for the Wolverines, and Glenn Robinson III scored 15. D.J. Newbill and Tim Frazier scored 17 points apiece for Penn State (9-9, 0-5), but those two backcourt standouts weren’t enough against a balanced Michigan team. The Wolverines have

won six straight, all without star big man Mitch McGary, who is out indefinitely with a back injury. Michigan and rival Michigan State are the Big Ten’s only teams without a conference loss. Michigan led by as many as 14 in the first half, but it was 40-33 at halftime, and the Nittany Lions hung around for a while. With the Wolverines ahead by only two, Stauskas connected from beyond the arc to make it 50-45. Newbill answered with a jumper, but Michigan scored the next nine points, including a three-point play by Caris LeVert and an alley-oop dunk by Robinson from LeVert that made it 59-47.

Walton, a freshman, has been gaining confidence after taking over the point guard duties when Trey Burke went to the NBA. Walton made a big driving layup at the end of Michigan’s win at Nebraska last week, and he scored the first eight points of Tuesday’s game on two 3-pointers and a layup. Michigan led 8-0, and at that point Penn State had four turnovers and only one shot attempt. After a 3-pointer by Spike Albrecht and a dunk by Jordan Morgan, the Wolverines led 30-18. Penn State upset Michigan in February for one of its two Big Ten victories last season.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Lions hire ex-Colts coach Jim Caldwell ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions said Tuesday that Jim Caldwell has been hired as the new coach and will be introduced at a news conference Wednesday. San Diego Chargers assistant and former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt was seemingly Detroit’s top choice, but he chose to take the head coaching job at Tennessee on Monday night. The Lions are giving Caldwell another chance to be an NFL head coach. He helped the Indianapolis Colts reach the Super Bowl after his debut season in 2009, but was fired two years later after a 2-14 season while Peyton Caldwell Manning was injured, dropping his three-year mark to 26-22. Caldwell was hired by Baltimore two years ago to be their quarterbacks coach and was promoted to offensive coordinator late in the 2012 season. The Ravens went on to win the last Super Bowl. Caldwell won his first 14 games with the Colts in 2009 before losing the final two games of the regular season while resting Manning and most of the other starters. The Colts lost to the New Orleans Saints in the Super Bowl. Indy was 10-6 the following season and won another AFC South title, then lost to the New York Jets in a wild-card game. With Manning out for all of Caldwell’s third season, the Colts lost 14 games and Caldwell lost his job. In Baltimore, Caldwell replaced offensive coordinator Cam Cameron toward the end of the 2012 regular season and he seemed to give the offense a boost as it went on to win the Super Bowl against San Francisco. Helping the Lions win one playoff game would be a relative feat: Detroit has only one playoff victory — more than two decades ago — since winning the 1957 NFL title. Caldwell, who won two playoff games in his first season with the Colts, will be counted on to use his experience with quarterbacks to make Matthew Stafford better. Detroit drafted Stafford No. 1 overall in 2009 and after two injury-shortened seasons, he has been spectacular at times and shaky at others.

Mark Whipple hired again as UMass football coach AMHERST, Mass. (AP) — The University of Massachusetts has hired Mark Whipple as its football coach. He returns to the school he coached from 1998 through 2003 and led to the Division I-AA national championship in his first season. UMass moved to the top level of college football when it joined the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2012. But the Minutemen went 1-11 in each of their two seasons under Charley Molnar. He was fired Dec. 26. After leaving UMass, the 56-year-old Whipple worked as quarterbacks coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2004-06, offensive assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008, offensive coordinator at the University of Miami from 2009-10 and quarterbacks coach with the Cleveland Browns from 2011-12. He did not coach last year.

2B Brian Roberts, Yanks finalize $2 million deal NEW YORK (AP) — Brian Roberts and the New York Yankees have completed their $2 million, one-year contract, a deal that allows the second baseman to earn $4.6 million if he becomes a regular starter. The contract was agreed to on Dec. 17 and finalized Tuesday, three days after a spot on the 40-man roster opened when Alex Rodriguez was suspended for the season for violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract. The 36-year-old Roberts, an All-Star in 2005 and 2007, is an option to replace Robinson Cano, who signed with Seattle. Roberts, who had spent his entire 13-year major league career with Baltimore, has not played a full season since 2009 because of injuries. He hit .249 with eight homers and 39 RBIs in 77 games last year. In addition to his base salary, Roberts can earn $2.6 million in performance bonuses based on plate appearances: $175,000 each for 250 and 300; $250,000 apiece for 350 and 400; $300,000 each for 450 and 500; $350,000 for 550; and $400,000 apiece for 600 and 650. Roberts raises the Yankees’ luxury-tax payroll to about $165 million, including benefits — the exact amount is uncertain pending a determination on how Rodriguez will be accounted for. A-Rod originally was listed at $27.5 million, but arbitrator Fredric Horowitz ruled the suspension will cost him 162/183rds of his $25 million salary this year, which comes to $22,131,148. The Yankees hope to be under the $189 million tax threshold this year.

Red Wings recall Jurco DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings have recalled right wing Tomas Jurco from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL. Jurco has played in seven games with the Red Wings this season, scoring two goals with one assist.







No pain? Weight gain There is bad losing, like the Colts did Saturday night. There is worse losing, like losing your keys. Finally, there is good losing — as in weight. Faithful readers will remember nearly a year ago at this time, I discussed my attempt to lose 30 pounds. My secondary reason for doing so was to become healthy enough so I would one day be able to write in this space how wrong it was that Social Security had MATT gone bankrupt just when I needed it. My primary GETTS reason for wanting to lose weight was to get my then-9-year-old daughter off my back. She’s just a little pill, but my daughter is relentless. Now a year later, and I have exceeded my goal. This morning, After that first half mile, I was 39 pounds the endorphins start to down from kick in. That’s when the the same time a year “runner’s high” takes ago. I have effect. You don’t just feel managed to stay under good exerting yourself, my goal you feel great. weight for a couple of months now. That doesn’t mean it’s easy. Alas, I have learned that weight loss is not nearly as permanent as the other, bad kinds of losses. You never beat a weight problem, because the fight is never really over. For every mile jogged, there is a Big Mac waiting to happen. For every meal of rice and skinless chicken, there is a loaf of Velveeta singing its sweet siren song. The toughest part is finding the happy medium, which for me was losing enough weight to keep running and lifting weights while not starving myself to the point I occasionally wake up in the Dumpster behind Pizza Hut. The key for me is exercise. At this point, I should tell you that before beginning any sort of exercise regimen you should see your doctor. Or you could mail me $75 and I will give you the official OK. Once you get over the sting of paying $75 for your doctor to tell you it’s OK to spend the rest of your life miserably hungry, start working out slowly. I began with walking. Then I walked farther. Then I walked farther and faster. Then I jogged. Then I ran (or at least what constitutes running for me). The hardest part is maybe the first half mile or so. During that period, my knees will ache, my back will spasm and my arches will twinge in pain. My body will literally come up with excuses not to continue running. Fortunately, having children, I am able to block out whining like a professional. After that first half mile, the endorphins start to kick in. That’s when the “runner’s high” takes effect. You don’t just feel good exerting yourself, you feel great. The harder you work, the more your body protests, the better you feel. That runner’s high is addictive. If I don’t run every three or four days, I start to get grouchy. I crave sweating and oxygen deprivation like some people crave crack cocaine or my mom craves her soap operas. The big upside to this addiction is the effect is has on my weight. If I run hard three days a week and lift another three days a week, I can pretty much eat what I want three or four days a week. I only have to cut back every third day or so, but even now, it isn’t easy to stare at a box of rice and call it supper. But if it keeps the girl off my back, I guess it’s worth it.

‘Bridgegate:’ failed management of transportation BY THOMAS HELLER

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s “Bridgegate” at the Fort Lee entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge serves notice of the dysfunction in the administration of our surface-transportation system. The political gamesmanship revealed by emails between Christie appointees is astounding and shameful. Before categorizing it as just another made-for-television political scandal, however, we need to understand how this sort of incident could occur anywhere in the nation. What we are witnessing in New Jersey has been in the works for decades. It is not merely the fall from grace of one state executive, his name besmirched by staffers whose actions more resemble Shakespearean villains than trusted appointees. It is representative of the failures, manipulations and outright fraud characterizing the realm of surface transportation, specifically the network of urban roads, transit and bridges governed by public bodies and financed by tax dollars. Among these failures were the enormous cost overruns of Boston’s “Big Dig” tunnel, a project manipulated and maneuvered from the start by consultants and government officials. Similarly, this same consultant-government cabal is attempting to manipulate expensive high-speed rail projects in several states, most notably in California. And that’s not all. Cities across the nation pursue high-cost transit projects that offer remarkably low productivity but whose “cool” factor lures voter approval, especially among the young

Guest Column • and impressionable. It should be no surprise that government has come to dominate transportation policy, a segment so crucially important to the efficient function of our people and our economy. And with government’s deep and entangling intrusion comes a sense of entitlement and unaccountability among those occupying influential transportation offices — the bureaucratic rabbit warrens to which political appointees gravitate and breed in sinecure with enough time to hatch petty political plots like those in New Jersey. Government’s near-complete corruption of surface-transportation infrastructure includes shadow groups known as Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) now controlling the flow of state and federal transportation dollars into those U.S. metropolitan areas serving populations over 50,000. These organizations are advised by staff and contracted consultants — all unelected but nonetheless preparing plans, approving projects and spending your tax dollars as they see fit. A few years back, even the MPO in my small Indiana town received almost a million federal stimulus dollars, lavished on a transit center for a four-bus system so inefficient it consumes over six tax dollars to transport every rider. Your town probably has a similar example. Will Rogers cogently observed that fraud is the inevitable result when

• two people get together to decide how to spend another person’s money. So, too, it is the inevitable outcome of government-erected mechanisms like MPOs. Meanwhile, the same consultants who were party to the financial fiasco that was Boston’s Big Dig are pitching a billion-dollar transit program in Indianapolis, flashing their history of being big players promoting expensive transit projects as the credentials that supposedly qualify them for any big-dollar, big-dream project anywhere. Bridgegate should be our warning. I fear it won’t be. Instead, an army of professional political spinners whose investment horizon extends only to the next election will misdirect our attention. The incident, in the end, may only divide the nation further while failing to alert us to the crisis at hand — the ongoing, systemic failure of a vital segment of our economy, transportation.

Israeli official insults Kerry’s peace efforts

Man fined for using stun gun on wife as part of football bet JUNEAU, Wis. (AP) — A suburban Chicago man was fined $250 after allegedly using a stun gun on his wife after she lost a bet on a Packers-Bears game. Forty-two-year-old John Grant of Tinley Park, Ill., pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct in a Wisconsin court on Thursday. Judge Steven Bauer ordered the fine plus court costs. The couple was driving through Mayville when they stopped at a bar to watch the Nov. 4 game. The Bears won 27-20. According to the complaint, Nicole Grant said her husband could use a stun gun on her for three seconds if Green Bay lost. John Grant allegedly used it three times, and she called police. She told officers she didn’t think her husband would actually use the weapon on her.

Detectives search Bieber’s home in vandalism case CALABASAS, Calif. (AP) — Detectives searched Justin Bieber’s home looking for surveillance footage that might serve as evidence the pop star was involved in an egg-tossing vandalism case that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a neighbor’s home, an official said Tuesday. Roughly a dozen investigators searched Bieber’s home and arrested one member of the singer’s entourage on suspicion of cocaine possession, Lt. David Thompson said. The man’s name was not immediately released, but Thompson said the cocaine was in plain view in Bieber’s house when deputies arrived. Bieber, 19, was at the home and cooperated with authorities but was not interviewed by detectives. Thompson said he expected the singer to speak with detectives when his attorney could be present. “He has not been arrested, nor has he been exonerated,” Thompson said of Bieber. Thompson declined to describe what evidence detectives took from Bieber’s home, but said the emphasis wasn’t on what was in the pop star’s refrigerator.



Curtis Reeves appears via video conference before Circuit Judge Lynn Tepper in Wesley Chapel, Fla., Tuesday. Tepper ordered Reeves, 71, held without bond on a charge of second-degree murder

in the death of 43-year-old Chad Oulson on Monday. An argument over texting in a movie theater ended with Reeves, a retired police captain, fatally shooting Oulson, authorities said.

Accused theater shooter ordered held without bail WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) — Chad Oulson was described by friends as a man who loved dirt bikes and his baby daughter. Curtis Reeves was a retired Tampa police officer with numerous commendations who liked riding his motorcycle with his wife. The men’s lives collided in a movie theater altercation that left Oulson dead and Reeves in jail. Oulson was texting his daughter’s daycare, friends said, and Reeves got mad. Authorities said Reeves shot and killed Oulson with a handgun after the men exchanged words. Reeves’ personnel files from the police department

show he led other agencies in gun safety training and received numerous letters of commendation for his leadership. Still, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said Tuesday: “It didn’t matter what he had done previously in his life. You don’t shoot someone over a texting incident.” During Reeves’ first court appearance Tuesday, Judge Lynn Tepper ordered the 71-year-old held without bond on a second-degree murder charge pending a bond hearing. Pasco County Sheriff’s officials say Reeves initially asked Oulson to stop texting at the theater in Wesley Chapel, a suburb about a half-hour north of

downtown Tampa. Sheriff’s Detective Allen Proctor wrote that Reeves spoke to Oulson during the movie previews, then got up and informed management. When Reeves returned to his seat “additional words were exchanged” and Oulson threw a bag of popcorn at Reeves, the report said. After officers read him his rights, Reeves told the detective that Oulson struck him in the face with an unknown object, and that’s when he removed a .380 caliber gun from his pants pocket. The report said Reeves fired the gun and struck Oulson once in the chest and that he “was in fear of being attacked.”

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s defense minister was quoted Tuesday as deriding U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s Mideast peace efforts as naive and foolhardy, triggering an angry response from Washington and rekindling simmering tensions with Israel’s closest and most important ally. The quotes appeared ahead of another visit by Kerry, who is expected in the region in the coming weeks to deliver his ideas on a framework for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Kerry has already submitted to Israel a series of proposals for ensuring Israel’s security as part of a future peace deal. In the comments published by the Yediot Ahronot daily, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon called Kerry “obsessive” and “messianic” and dismissed Kerry’s security plan as worthless. “The only thing that might save us is if John Kerry wins the Nobel Prize and leaves us be,” Yaalon was quoted as saying. Yaalon is a former military chief of staff and close ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Since becoming defense minister last year, a position of great influence in Israel, he has been a vocal skeptic of Kerry’s peace efforts. In his public statements, he has said Israel has “no partner” for peace and questioned the Palestinian commitment to resolving years of conflict.

Asked about the report, Yaalon issued a statement saying that relations with the U.S. are “intimate and meaningful” for Israel. “The United States is our greatest friend and our strongest ally and when there are differences they are resolved behind closed doors, including with Secretary Kerry with whom I have many conversations about the future of Israel. I will continue to determinedly, responsibly and thoughtfully protect the security of the people of Israel,” Yaalon said. His office would neither confirm nor deny the comments in Yediot, and repeated requests for additional comment were not answered. Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders scrambled to distance themselves from Yaalon, while the U.S. condemned the reported comments as “offensive and inappropriate.” The U.S. Embassy in Israel has complained about the reported comments to the Israeli government, said a senior State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to discuss the matter on the record. Under heavy American pressure, Israel and the Palestinians resumed substantive peace talks last July for the first time in nearly five years. So far, there have been no signs of progress, and the talks have been marred by finger pointing by both sides.


People • West investigated after altercation BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Beverly Hills police say they’re investigating Kanye West for misdemeanor battery after a man accused the rapper of attacking him. Sgt. George DeMarois says several witnesses identiWest fied West as being involved in an altercation around 12:15 p.m. on Monday at an office on exclusive Wilshire Boulevard. The rapper had left the premises by the time officers arrived. Police said Tuesday they weren’t releasing further details and Blair Berk, an attorney representing West in another case, declined comment. West was charged last year with misdemeanor battery and attempted grand theft after a fight with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport. He’s pleaded not guilty in the case. The photographer has sued West for assault and battery. West’s attorneys stated that West was in fear for his safety.

Juana Perez cries beside the coffin of her son, Rodrigo Benitez, 25, killed in the recent fighting in Antunez, Mexico Tuesday. The government moved in to quell violence between vigilantes and a drug cartel, and witnesses say several unarmed civilians were killed in an early Tuesday confrontation.

Mexican soldiers, vigilantes clash ANTUNEZ, Mexico (AP) — The Mexican government moved in to quell violence between vigilantes and a drug cartel in Michoacan state, but the campaign turned deadly early Tuesday with a confrontation between soldiers and civilians who witnesses say were unarmed. There were widely varying reports of casualties, but Associated Press journalists saw the bodies of two men said to have died in the clash, and spoke to the family of a third man who was reportedly killed in the same incident. No women or children died, contrary to earlier reports by the spokesman of a self-defense group. The Attorney General’s Office said it could not confirm a number of dead. The Interior Ministry said it had no information about reports that soldiers had fired on an unarmed crowd. “This is how they plan to protect the community? We don’t want them,” said Gloria Perez Torres, grieving over the body of

her brother, Mario, 56, who was killed in the clash. Antunez was calm again Tuesday, and self-defense groups remained armed and in control. In the city of Apatzingan, hundreds of federal police offices traveling in pickup trucks with machines guns mounted on the top, armored vehicles and buses amassed in the city square as residents watched. “The federal police have been here for years but they don’t do anything,” said a man sitting on a bench at the plaza who identified himself only as Ivan. Security analyst Alejandro Hope, who formerly worked for the country’s intelligence agency, called the government’s strategy in Michoacan a “disaster.” After initially arresting the vigilantes months ago, the federal government appeared to be working with them recently. The army and Federal Police have provided helicopter cover and road patrols while the self-defense groups attacked the cartel.

Angry dad wants to control his emotions DEAR ABBY: I’m a dad in my 30s and I have a problem. I have been battling anger issues since I was a kid. I have been finding myself getting more and more worked up with my kids. When they misbehave, I lose it and yell at them. It is the way I was raised; however, I feel even worse afterward. I really want to break this habit. I don’t want the only memories my children have of me to be images of my red face and bugged-out eyes hollering at them. Do you have any guidelines I can follow to get a better handle on my anger? —LOUD DAD IN WEST VIRGINIA DEAR LOUD DAD: Yes, I do. And I’m glad you asked me because it’s important that you find other ways of relieving your frustration than taking it out on your children. It is not only counterproductive, it is extremely destructive. When a bigger person yells at a smaller person, the message




Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Dealing with anger calmly and with reason is more effective than lashing out. Expressing your feelings is healthy when it’s done with a few well-chosen words that make your point. As you have already learned, exploding in anger serves no constructive purpose and only makes you feel worse afterward. Sometimes when people are angry or frustrated about other things, they can lose control of their temper. In situations like these, it is important to evaluate the source of what might really be irritating you before misdirecting your anger at someone who is blameless.

nately, the more estrogen, the higher the likelihood of side effects such as high blood pressure or headaches. Minipills do not prevent ovulation as effectively as combination pills because they don’t contain estrogen. They mainly act by thickening secretions of the cervix and making it hard for a fertilized egg to implant in the uterus. They are about 98 percent effective. Minipills need to be taken exactly as directed. Even missing one pill can greatly reduce their effectiveness. Combination birth control pills are available in three subtypes: monophasic, biphasic and triphasic. Monophasic pills contain a constant amount of estrogen and progestogen. With biphasic and triphasic pills, the dose varies over the course of the month. For most women, monophasic birth control pills are a good first option.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve recently become sexually active and I’m planning to go on the pill. But there are so many different types of birth control pills. Which one is right for me? DEAR READER: I don’t know enough about you to give an answer that’s right for you. From my general remarks about these pills, I’m hopeful you can pinpoint the ones that seem right for you — and discuss them with your doctor. Birth control pills can be divided into two basic categories: combined pills and minipills. Most birth control pills are combined pills. They contain a combination of two types of female sex hormones: the hormone estrogen and a progestogen (a group of hormones that includes progesterone). Minipills contain a progestogen, but no estrogen. The estrogen in combined birth control pills prevents ovulation, the release of a

You should not ignore your feelings when your children act up. Rather, you need to DEAR find another for ABBY manner expressing yourself. My booklet Jeanne Phillips “The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It” offers suggestions on redirecting angry feelings in a healthy way. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby — Anger Booklet, P.O. Box 447,

They work as well as the more expensive and more complicated biphasic and triphasic products. Minipills are a good option if you have a reason to avoid estrogen. The most common reasons are a tendency to develop blood clots, smoking and current breastfeeding. That’s because estrogen increases the tendency for blood clots. In smokers, even if they’ve never had a problem with blood clots in the past, starting on estrogen increases the risk for clots — and of the heart attacks and strokes caused by them. Estrogen reduces the amount of breast milk, so estrogen-containing birth control pills normally are not recommended in women who are breast feeding. DR.

Christie: Scandal won’t define state Judiciary against TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Faced with a widening political scandal that threatens to undermine his second term and a possible 2016 presidential run, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized again Tuesday, saying his administration “let down the people we are entrusted to serve” but that the issue doesn’t define his team or the state. On the eve of his second term, the governor opened his annual State of the State address by touching only briefly on the apparent political payback plot before moving on in his 46-minute speech to take credit for the state’s improving economy and cycle through such familiar themes as avoiding tax increases and working with the Democrats who control both chambers of the state Legislature. “The last week has certainly tested this administration,” he said. “Mistakes were clearly made. And as a result, we let down the people we are entrusted to serve. I know our citizens deserve better.” He received tempered applause after he went on, saying, “This administration and this Legislature will not allow the work that needs to be done to improve the people’s lives in Jersey to be delayed.” Turning later to policy matters, he warned that the state must reduce its pension and debt-service payments in the coming year. They’re scheduled to rise by a combined total of nearly $1 billion. He also promoted the state’s rising high school graduation rate and

privacy advocate joining spy court WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. judiciary told Congress Tuesday it opposes the idea of having an independent privacy advocate on the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, while members of Congress lauded the idea at a Capitol Hill hearing. Speaking for the entire U.S. judiciary, U.S. District Judge John D. Bates sent a letter to the Senate Intelligence Committee saying that appointing an independent advocate to the secret surveillance AP court is unnecessary and New Jersey Gov.

“We don’t think that’s consistent with our legal traditions,” Sunstein said. Those competing points of view are playing out as President Barack Obama decides what changes he’ll back and unveil in a speech Friday, to satisfy privacy, legal and civil liberties concerns over the NSA’s surveillance practices. Bates, the former FISA chief judge, also rejected the panel’s recommendation that the government seek court approval every time it wants to obtain information in cases of national security, known as a national security letter. Roughly 20,000 such letters are issued every year. Bates said it would create too much work for the court, even if staff was added to handle the caseload. Bates was speaking for the judiciary in his current role as the administrative judge of the United States courts. Rep. Adam Schiff, an advocate for FISA reform, said Tuesday that reformers aren’t pushing for an independent advocate in all cases. “It would only be for the request to bless broad programs or for novel constitutional issues,” the California Democrat said in an interview Tuesday.
