GOOD MORNING Vera Bradley unveils major growth plans FORT WAYNE — Vera Bradley Inc., a designer of handbags, gifts, travel bags and accessories, on Friday announced plans to expand its operations in Fort Wayne, creating up to 128 new jobs by 2017. The company will invest approximately $26.6 million to expand and equip its current 40,000-square-foot design center by 149,000 square feet and expand its distribution center by 10,000 square feet. Both facilities are on Stonebridge Road off the Lafayette Center Road exit on Interstate 69 and are expected to be operational next year. “We are proud to invest in our home state,” said Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, chief creative officer and co-founder. “Our design center expansion will bring nearly all of our northeast Indiana employees together on one campus.” The project will be Vera Bradley’s second major expansion in northeast Indiana in less than two years. In 2011, the company announced plans to invest $22.5 million to expand its Roanoke distribution center to 420,000 square feet, adding 124 new jobs.

Ready for re-enactment LaGrange prepares for Civil War event slated for next Saturday LAGRANGE — LaGrange is about to take a giant step backward in time. On Saturday, Aug. 10, LaGrange and the LaGrange County Courthouse will host a day-long re-enactment of a day in the midst of the Civil War. The first ever Civil War History Day was dreamed up by local historians Jean Fremion-McKibben and DaLonda Young. The event is free and open to the public. The event is designed to honor and teach about the kind of life someone might have lived in the area during 1863, the midst of the Civil War. A group of Civil War re-enactors from Fort Wayne will portray the men of the 44th Indiana, an infantry regiment first organized in Fort Wayne in 1861 and composed of men from northeast Indiana, including

LaGrange. Their camp will be set up near the courthouse. The event begins at 7 a.m. Aug. 10, when members of the 44th will open their encampment to the public. The community room at the LaGrange County Public Library and the LaGrange County Historical Museum also will open their doors to displays of antique toys, daguerreotype pictures and other Civil War vintage artifacts. At 8 a.m., a Civil War era medical tent will open to display and highlight the state of medical knowledge during the war. At 9 a.m., Indiana authors Margaret Hobson and Cheri Mattox will be available to discuss and sign their books. Hobson is the author of a book about Indiana’s 44th, while Mattox penned a book about the men of SEE READY, PAGE A10

Travelers around the world advised of al-Qaida plot

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States issued an extraordinary global travel warning to Americans Friday about the threat of an al-Qaida attack and closed down 21 embassies and consulates across the Muslim world for the weekend. The alert was the first of its kind since an announcement preceding the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This one comes with the scars still fresh from last year’s deadly Sept. 11 attack on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, and with the Obama administration and Congress determined to prevent any similar breach of an American Embassy or consulate. “There is a significant threat stream and we’re reacting to it,” said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He told ABC News in an interview to be aired Sunday that the threat was “more specific” than previous ones and the “intent is to attack Western, not just U.S. interests.” The State Department warning urged American travelers to take extra precautions overseas, citing potential dangers involved with public transportation systems and other prime sites for tourists and noting that previous terrorist attacks have centered on subway and rail networks as well as airplanes and boats. It suggested travelers sign SEE THREAT, PAGE A10

Local woman selected as state’s Dairy Princess INDIANAPOLIS — Carmen Metzger of rural Kimmell has been selected as the 2013-14 Dairy Princess for the American Dairy Association of Indiana. She was crowned Tuesday before a crowd of dairy industry members and their families and friends at the Embassy Suites North in Indianapolis. Metzger, 20, is the daughter of John and Susan Metzger. She represented Dean Foods in the 2013 Indiana Dairy Princess Scholarship Program. She graduated from Central Noble High School and attends Michigan State University as a junior pursuing a career in animal genomics. Metzger will serve as the official goodwill ambassador for Indiana’s dairy farmers during the coming year, making a number of public appearances and participating in promotional events. She will work to educate the public and her peers on the importance of dairy to Indiana’s economy and to Hoosiers’ health. “I’m really excited for the year to come to help educate the public about dairy farming,” Metzger said Friday. She said she will emphasize how “just the cows in Indiana can feed so much more than just the people in Indiana.” As the Indiana Dairy Princess, she will receive a $1,000 scholarship from the American Dairy Association along with other gifts of appreciation from sponsors.

• Following a personal interview in the princess selection contest, Metzger spoke on how Indiana dairy farmers can help feed the state and Indiana’s hungry residents. Contestants were judged on poise, personality, speaking ability, education, and dairy knowledge. Judges for the contest included Deborah Hearn Smith, CEO for Girl Scouts of Central Indiana; Martha Rardin, director of nutrition and dietetics for Hendricks Regional Health; and Dave Blower, editor of Farm World publication. Metzger said she grew up on dairy farm near Wolf Lake and participated in 4-H in Noble County. She is spending the summer South Dakota on an internship in swine genetics. After graduation, she intends to continue to graduate school, she said. She is interested in a career in herd improvement, helping to produce better animals faster, in the swine or dairy industries or both.

Area man gets 50 years for death BY KATHRYN BASSETT

FORT WAYNE — A rural Auburn man was sentenced to 50 years in prison Friday for the beating death of another man in Allen County a year ago. Alexander During a hearing in Allen Superior Court, Judge Fran Gull accepted a plea agreement by Michael Alexander, 34, of the 3400 block of C.R. 60. Alexander previously had pleaded guilty to an amended charge of voluntary manslaughter, a Class A felony, in the death of Gregory A. Funich. Alexander also pleaded guilty to theft, a Class D felony. Alexander had been charged with murder, but the charge was reduced as part of the plea agreement. Gull sentenced Alexander to 50 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter and three years in prison for theft. The sentences will be served at the same time. He was ordered to pay $10,774 in restitution. Alexander originally was arrested by police at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and resisting law enforcement. Investigators later discovered the car Alexander was driving at the time of his arrest was registered to Funich. A roommate found Funich, 42, dead in his residence on Lonesome Oak Court. The Allen County Coroner’s Office ruled Funich’s death a homicide, listing his cause of death as blunt-force trauma to the head. During Friday’s hearing, Alexander’s attorney,

Jennifer Lukemeyer, described the crime as a “classic voluntary manslaughter” case. She said circumstances surrounding the fatal incident on Aug. 10, 2012, involved alcohol and, perhaps, drug use and consensual interaction between Alexander and Funich. Lukemeyer said Funich disclosed to Alexander than he had a disease that Alexander might now have. The nature of the disease was not disclosed. “That made him see red,” Lukemeyer said. “We are not blaming anyone other than Mr. Alexander for his behavior, but explaining the circumstances under which this became a voluntary (manslaughter) case.” Lukemeyer said Alexander’s family has been “more than present” throughout the case and never tried to justify his behavior. A second defense attorney, James Voyles, presented Alexander’s history of mental illness. He said Alexander has accepted responsibility for his conduct. He said Alexander benefits from being in a structured environment and by taking his medications. “Those are the things an institution is going to be able to provide for him,” Voyles added. Funich’s family also spoke at Friday’s hearing, describing the toll his death has taken. Funich’s partner of 13 years said Alexander took from him something that never will be replaced. “It’s nothing that I would ever, ever wish upon my worst enemy to go through,” he said. “He just took something away from me.” Turning to Alexander, he added, “I can never forgive you for that.”

Funich’s father, who is in wheelchair and uses a walker, told Gull how he had depended on his son for assistance. Funich’s brother told Alexander, “I think you are a piece of ——, and I truly hope you rot in hell.” Allen County deputy prosecutor Steven Godfrey outlined Alexander’s criminal history that includes six misdemeanor and two felony convictions, four revocations of parole and two revocations of probation. In June 2012, Alexander was convicted of a violent crime in DeKalb County. Alexander pleaded guilty to battery resulting in bodily injury and resisting law enforcement, both Class A misdemeanors. He was sentenced to one year in jail, with 188 days suspended. With credit for time served in jail while waiting for his case to move through the court system, Alexander was released June 14, 2012. Court documents said Alexander was on parole for a burglary conviction at the time of his arrest in the DeKalb County case. Godfrey described Alexander as “manipulative.” He said he has been diagnosed with having anti-social personality disorder. Gull described the pain inflicted by Alexander on his family and Funich’s family as “unimaginable” and agreed that a voluntary manslaughter charge was the correct resolution to the case. Addressing the court, Alexander said, “I know what happened on that night. I know what I did can’t be undone. The only thing I can do is claim responsibility for it. I hope that when the day comes, God has mercy on me for what I’ve done.”

KENDALLVILLE — Teacher resignations coming about two weeks before the start of the new school year had East Noble school board members asking “why” at Wednesday night’s board meeting. “This is alarming,” said school trustee John Wicker. Trustees approved school administrators’ recommendation to accept the resignations of nine employees, including six teachers. Superintendent Ann Linson admitted it will be difficult to replace them at such a late date. Asked by trustees to explain the resignations, Linson said other school districts recruited some experienced East Noble teachers with better pay offers, and other teachers changed careers to accept offers in the private sector. “Some teachers have left teaching because of the changes in education over the past few years,” she said. More people are leaving education than coming into teaching, Linson added.

Trustees accepted these resignations: Brian Sherck, emotional disability teacher, Esteban Coria, high school Spanish teacher, and Matthew Brian, science teacher, all at East Noble High School; Jessica Sherck, mild disability teacher, and Laura Weber, fourth-grade teacher, both at North Side Elementary; Corbin Smith, social studies teacher at East Noble Middle School; Anna Merriman, educational interpreter at East Noble High School; Christine Koegler, reading intervention instructional assistant at Wayne Center Elementary; and Kathy Edmonds, part-time food service. The board approve two new hires: Cathy Collins, speech and language pathologist; and Doneva Kitchen, Skills for Success instructional assistant at North Side Elementary. East Noble Middle School custodian Richard Smuts was reassigned to custodian at Wayne Center Elementary, and Elaine Taulbee, instructional assistant at the high school, has retired.

West Nile virus found in DeKalb County AUBURN — This summer’s first sign of West Nile virus in DeKalb County has arrived, the DeKalb County Health Department said Friday. A sample pool of mosquitoes collected July 17 in the county by the Indiana State Department of Health has tested positive for the virus, said Bernie Sukala, the county’s environmental health specialist. Sukala said mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus tend to lay their eggs in ditches and catchbasins with high organic matter, septic system discharge sites, unused wading and swimming pools, vehicle tires and other containers of water. Most people — about 80 percent — of people who are bitten by infected mosquitoes will have little or no symptoms, Sukala said. More than 19 percent will experience a relatively mild illness or fever. Fewer than 1 percent will be susceptible to one of the more severe forms of the disease, which may result in encephalitis — an inflammation of the brain — or meningitis, an inflammation of the tissues that cover the brain and spinal cord. Animals also can be infected with West Nile virus. Sukala said to avoid

being bitten by mosquitoes, people should avoid heavily wooded areas or tall weeds, if possible. For people who must be outside during the periods from dusk to dawn, or in heavily shaded areas, Sukala offered these tips: • Make sure to use an effective mosquito repellent. • Make sure all windows and doors have screens that are in good repair. • Frequently empty containers of water around residences. • Make sure any ponds on a property contain fish or frogs that eat mosquito larvae. • Keep tall weeds and overgrown areas to a minimum. • Place any tires without rims so that they cannot collect water, or dispose of them properly. Sukala said the Indiana State Department of Health no longer accepts birds for testing related to West Nile virus. Instead, the department now sets up sample sites in each county to collect mosquitoes for testing. Its site in DeKalb County tested positive, indicating that the virus is active in the area. Anyone with questions about West Nile virus may contact the DeKalb County Health Department, 220 E. Seventh St., Auburn, phone 925-2090.

Stomach bug linked to farm in Mexico WASHINGTON (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration says an outbreak of stomach illnesses in Iowa and Nebraska is linked to salad mix served at Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants in those states and supplied by a Mexican farm. The outbreak of cyclospora infections has sickened more than 400 people in 16 states in all. The agency says it is working to determine whether the salad mix is the source of illnesses in the other 14 states. “It is not yet clear whether the cases reported from other states are all part of the same outbreak,” the agency said in a statement. “The investigation of increased cases of cyclosporiasis in other states continues.” Both Olive Garden and Red Lobster are owned by Orlando-based Darden Restaurants. In a statement, the company questioned the FDA findings, saying it has “no reason to believe that anyone was exposed to cyclospora in any of our restaurants.” “We have done extensive trace-backs on all our produce, including looking at analyses of the irrigation water used in our suppliers’ growing fields, and there are no issues or concerns with any of the products we use,” said Darden spokesman Mike Bernstein. The FDA said it traced illnesses from the restaurants in Nebraska and Iowa to Taylor Farms de Mexico, a processor of food service salads based in Salinas, Calif.

Are we Rome yet? Unfortunately, the fall of Rome is a pattern repeated by empires throughout history … including ours? A group of libertarians gathered in Las Vegas recently for an event called “FreedomFest.” We debated whether America will soon fall, as Rome did. Historian Carl Richard said that today’s America resembles Rome. The Roman Republic had a constitution, but Roman leaders often ignored it. “Marius was elected consul six years in a row, even JOHN though under the constitution (he) was term-limited to year.” STOSSEL oneSounds like New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg. “We have presidents of both parties legislating by executive order, saying I’m not going to enforce certain laws because I don’t like them. … That open flouting of the law is dangerous because law ceases to have meaning. … I see that today. … Congress passes huge laws they haven’t even read (as well as) overspending, overtaxing and devaluing the currency.” The Romans were worse. I object to President Obama’s $100 million dollar trip, but Nero traveled with 1,000 carriages. Tiberius established an “office of imperial pleasures,” which gathered “beautiful boys and girls from all corners of the world” so, as Tacitus put it, the emperor “could defile them.” Emperor Commodus held a show in the Colosseum at which he personally killed five hippos, two elephants, a rhinoceros and a giraffe. To pay for their excesses, emperors devalued the currency. (Doesn’t our Fed do that by buying $2 trillion of government debt?) Nero reduced the silver content of coins to 95 percent. Then Trajan reduced it to 85 percent and so on. By the year 300, wheat that once cost eight Roman dollars cost 120,000 Roman dollars. The president of the Foundation for Economic Education, Lawrence Reed, warned that Rome, like America, had an expanding welfare state. It started with “subsidized grain. The government gave it away at half price. But the problem was that they couldn’t stop there … a man named Claudius ran for Tribune on a platform of free wheat for the masses. And won. It was downhill from there.” Soon, to appease angry voters, emperors gave away or subsidized olive oil, salt and pork. People lined up to get free stuff. Rome’s government, much like ours, wasn’t good at making sure subsidies flowed only to the poor, said Reed: “Anybody could line up to get these goods, which contributed to the ultimate bankruptcy of the Roman state.” As inflation increased, Rome, much like the U.S. under President Nixon, imposed wage and price controls. When people objected, Emperor Diocletian denounced their “greed,” saying, “Shared humanity urges us to set a limit.” Doesn’t that sound like today’s anti-capitalist politicians? Diocletian was worse than Nixon. Rome enforced controls with the death penalty — and forbid people to change professions. Emperor Constantine decreed that those who broke such rules “be bound with chains and reduced to servile condition.” Eventually, Rome’s empire was so large — and people so resentful of centralized control — that generals in outlying regions began declaring independence from Rome. At FreedomFest, Matt Kibbe, president of the tea party group FreedomWorks, also argued that America could soon collapse like Rome did. “The parallels are quite ominous — the debt, the expansionist foreign policy, the arrogance of executive power taking over our country,” says Kibbe. “But I do think we have a chance to stop it.” That’s a big difference between today’s America and yesterday’s Rome. We have movements like the tea party and libertarianism and events like FreedomFest that alert people to the danger in imperial Washington and try to fight it. If they can wake the public, we have hope. The triumph of liberty is not inevitable, though. And empires do crumble. Rome’s lasted the longest. The Ottoman Empire lasted 623 years. China’s Song, Qing and Ming dynasties each lasted about 300 years. We’ve lasted just 237 years so far — sometimes behaving like a republic and sometimes an empire. In that time, we’ve accomplished amazing things, but we shouldn’t take our continued success for granted. Freedom and prosperity are not natural. In human history, they’re rare.

I ask how they knew, but couldn’t get any clear examples. I tell them about Indiana. “Where I am from in northern Indiana,” I say, “we have lots of signs announcing hard winters. There is always the caterpillar, and on a certain day, if you have six black crows on a clothesline, it means six white snows.” OK, I am not sure about that one. I mean, what day? Whose clothesline?

I have to say farewell to friends and respond to those back home who want to know when I will be arriving.

Review of grade system launched Sikhs to be added Lawmakers create task force after to hate crime stats emails raise questions in Indiana INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s top lawmakers are creating a task force to review the state’s “A-F” school grading system following the revelation former state schools superintendent Tony Bennett changed the grading formula for a Republican donor’s charter school. Republican Senate President Pro Tem David Long and Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma announced Friday the creation of an independent task force to review the school grading system. They noted their previous concerns with the school grading system, but Bennett’s efforts detailed in emails obtained by The Associated Press raised new concerns for them. “Since then, the issue has been brought to the forefront

in negative ways and our concerns about the previous assessment system are increasing,” Bosma and Long wrote in a letter Friday. The two enlisted John Grew, a former aide to then-Democratic Gov. Frank O’Bannon, and Bill Sheldrake, the former head of the Indiana Fiscal Policy Institute, to review the grading system. The pair is expected to complete that before Labor Day. The pair will evaluate the A-F formula, determine the validity of the grades awarded and make recommendations to the state Board of Education and General Assembly. Bennett resigned from his job as Florida’s schools chief Thursday, a few days after emails were published about his efforts to change

the school-grading formula for the Christel House charter school in Indianapolis. Bennett attributed the revelation about the grades to political attacks from opponents and has maintained he did not grant special treatment to Christel House. The school’s founder, Christel DeHaan, has also said she did not seek special treatment and the emails show no request on her part. Democratic state schools superintendent Glenda Ritz says her office is conducting an internal review. Gov. Mike Pence, a Republican, said he is waiting to see what Ritz’s assessment uncovers before making any decisions. “The most important thing we can do moving forward is to have an independent and fair assessment of the A-F school grading process,” Long said in a statement Friday. Indiana’s school grades are used to determine how

much money schools get and whether “failing” schools are taken over by private operators, like Charter Schools USA. They also have become critical economic development tools in recent years, used in part by homebuyers picking locations based on the quality of their schools. Indiana teacher unions and local school superintendents called for the immediate suspension of the grades Bennett’s office issued last year. But Statehouse leaders from Ritz to Long and Bosma have hesitated to make any immediate decisions. Bosma said state lawmakers already had decided earlier this year to scrap Bennett’s A-F formula and return to the drawing board. Local superintendents frequently complained last year about an inability to get straight answers from the Department of Education on the formula used to determine their grades.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department will begin keeping numbers on hate crimes committed against Sikhs and six other groups, in connection with Monday’s one-year anniversary of the killing of six Sikh worshippers in Oak Creek, Wis. Attorney General Eric Holder made the announcement Friday in a blog post, which The Associated Press obtained ahead of its official release. Holder said FBI Director Robert Mueller had approved a recommendation from the agency’s advisory policy board to track hate crimes against Sikhs, Hindus, Arabs, Buddhists, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Orthodox Christians. “Having accurate information allows law enforcement leaders and policymakers to make informed decisions about the allocation of resources and

priorities — decisions that impact real people, and affect public safety in every neighborhood and community,” Holder wrote in the blog post. “Today, I am proud to report that we have taken steps to collect this information.” The addition had long been sought by members of the Sikh community. Holder also announced a $500,000 grant for mental health and trauma services to those affected by the Oak Creek shooting, including survivors and family members. A year ago Monday, Wade Michael Page, who had ties to white supremacist groups, walked into the Milwaukee-area Sikh Temple of Wisconsin and opened fire. He killed six priests and worshippers and wounded five others, and then fatally shot himself after he was wounded in the parking lot by a police sniper.

According to Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control officials, a white van with “ANIMAL CARE” in bold, black letters on the side has been seen driving slowly through Fort Wayne. The van is not connected to the FWACC. Animals were reported missing from backyards in the northwest area of the city.

Elkhart graffiti program to continue ELKHART — The Elkhart Art League’s board of directors decided Thursday to continue a program to permit graffiti artists to add artwork to the building’s exterior walls, according to news reports. Ellen Ridenour, vice president of the art league, told the Elkhart Truth that despite some vandalism to the building’s roof and nearby property, the group believes they’re seeing some positive results from the program. Reports of vandalism surfaced last week and were accompanied by concerns that some of the graffiti might include gang symbols.

State taking applications for school safety grants INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Secured School Safety Grant created to provide matching grants to put police and other safety measures in schools is now taking applications. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security says it started taking grant applications Thursday. The deadline to submit proposals is September 30. The Indiana Secured School Fund was created to provide matching grants to school corporations, charter schools or coalitions of schools to make schools safer by hiring school resource officers, conducting threat assessments, or

purchasing equipment to restrict access to schools or to expedite notification of first responders.

up for State Department alerts and register with U.S. consulates in the countries they visit. The statement said that al-Qaida or its allies might target either U.S. government or private American interests. The alert expires on Aug. 31. The State Department said the potential for terrorism was particularly acute in the Middle East and North Africa, with a possible attack occurring on or coming from the Arabian Peninsula. U.S. officials pointed specifically to Yemen, the home of al-Qaida’s most dangerous offshoot and the network blamed for several notable terrorist plots on the United States, from the foiled Christmas Day 2009 effort to bomb an airliner over Detroit to the explosives-laden parcels intercepted the following year aboard cargo flights. “Current information suggests that al-Qaida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” a department statement said. The alert was posted a day after the U.S. announced it would shut many diplomatic facilities Sunday. Spokeswoman Marie Harf said the department acted out of an “abundance of caution” and that some missions may stay closed for longer than a day. Sunday is a business day in Muslim countries, and the diplomatic offices affected stretch from Mauritania in northwest Africa to Afghanistan. “I don’t know if I can say there was a specific threat,” said Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s top Democrat, who was briefed on the State Department’s decision. “There is concern over the potentiality of violence.” Although the warning coincided with “Al-Quds Day,” the last Friday of the Islamic month of Ramadan when people in Iran and some Arab countries express

their solidarity with the Palestinians and their opposition to Israel, U.S. officials played down any connection. They said the threat wasn’t directed toward a specific American diplomatic facility. The concern by American officials over the Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula is not new, given the terror branch’s gains in territory and reach during Yemen’s prolonged Arab Spring-related instability. The group made significant territorial gains last year, capturing towns and cities in the south amid a power struggle in the capital that ended with the resignation of Yemen’s longtime leader, Ali Abdullah Saleh. A U.S.-aided counteroffensive by the government has since pushed the militants back. Yemen’s current president, Abdo Rabby Mansour Hadi, met with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House on Thursday, where both leaders cited strong counterterrorism cooperation. Earlier this week, Yemen’s military reported a U.S. drone strike killed six alleged al-Qaida militants in the group’s southern strongholds. As recently as June, the group’s commander, Qasim al-Rimi, released an Arabic-language video urging attacks on U.S. targets and praising the ethnic Chechen brothers accused of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombings. “Making these bombs has become in everyone’s … reach,” he said, according to the English subtitles on the video, reposted by private U.S. intelligence firm the IntelCenter. “The blinking red intelligence appears to be pointing toward an Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula plot,” said Seth Jones, counterterror expert at the Rand Corp., referring to the branch of al-Qaida known as AQAP. Britain also took action Friday in Yemen, announcing it would close its embassy there on Sunday and Monday as a precaution. Britain, which closely

coordinates on intelligence matters with Washington, stopped short of releasing a similar region-wide alert but added that some embassy staff in Yemen had been withdrawn “due to security concerns.” British embassies and consulates elsewhere in the Middle East were to remain open. Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., the House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman, said the embassy threat was linked to al-Qaida and concerned the Middle East and Central Asia. “In this instance, we can take a step to better protect our personnel and, out of an abundance of caution, we should,” Royce said. He declined to say if the National Security Agency’s much-debated surveillance program helped reveal the threat. Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel, also supported the department’s decision to go public with its concerns. “The most important thing we have to do is protect American lives,” he said, describing the threat as “not the regular chitchat” picked up from would-be militants on the Internet or elsewhere. The State Department issued another warning a year ago about potential violence connected to the Sept. 11 anniversary. Dozens of American installations were besieged by protests over reports of an anti-Islam video made by an American resident, and in Benghazi, Libya, the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed when militants assaulted a diplomatic post. The administration no longer says Benghazi was related to the demonstrations. But the attack continues to be a flashpoint of contention with Republicans in Congress who say Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and others in the government misled the country about the nature of the attack after failing to provide adequate diplomatic protection.

White Sox drop 8th straight

NATIONAL LEAGUE L.A. DODGERS.........................6 CHICAGO CUBS ....................2

DETROIT (AP) — Hector Santiago avoided the big inning and gave the Chicago White Sox a chance to snap their dreadful losing streak. It wasn’t enough — not against a Detroit team that is moving in a much different direction. Doug Fister pitched eight impressive innings, Austin Jackson homered and Jose Iglesias drove in a run in his Detroit debut to lead the Tigers to a 2-1 win over the White Sox on Friday night. Chicago has lost eight straight. AL Central-leading Detroit has won 10 of 11. “Hector was sharp, but Fister was just as good,” White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. “When he’s throwing strikes like that and pitching with that tempo, there’s not much you can do against him.” Fister (10-5) allowed a run and seven hits, striking out two. Joaquin Benoit pitched a hitless ninth for his 11th save in 11 chances. Santiago (3-7) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Fister threw 88 pitches before being replaced by Benoit for the ninth. He won his fourth straight start — and he’s allowed four earned runs in 28 innings over that span. “Things were feeling pretty good tonight,” Fister said. “I’m trying to be as consistent as possible from Day One, and things are falling our way right now.” Iglesias could soon take over at shortstop for Jhonny Peralta.

SOUTH BEND (AP) — Putting together back-to-back strong seasons has been rare of late at Notre Dame. Since going 10-1-1 in 1992 and 11-1 in 1993, the Irish have won at least nine games in consecutive seasons just once, going 9-3 and 10-3 in 2005 and 2006 in the first two seasons under Charlie Weis. Last season’s 12-1 record, which included a blowout loss to Alabama in the national title game, was the first time the Irish have won at least nine games since then. It was the program’s best record in nearly two decades. Coach Brian Kelly said the Irish know the challenge ahead.

“We’ve worked very hard to put ourselves back into position to get back into the national spotlight. We have no intentions of giving that up,” Kelly said Friday. “So the focus has been since the last game of last year is to get back to the top of the mountain. You don’t get there easily. It takes a lot of work.” The Irish get to work Monday when they begin practicing for the first four days at a facility in Marion, a central Indiana city about 100 miles southeast of the Notre Dame campus. Kelly said the players won’t have access to TVs and predicted that the local Wi-Fi will crash shortly after the

players arrive. “It’s an opportunity for us to focus on football and each other,” Kelly said. Kelly said his contract situation won’t be a distraction, saying a new deal is “imminent.” Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick has said the school is working on a contract extension for Kelly, whose current deal runs through the 2016 season. Kelly, who interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles job the day after the BCS game during January, said the basic deal for a contract has been in place since December.

Indianapolis adds swagger, confidence to defense


Final major

ANDERSON (AP) — Colts defensive end Cory Redding stood his ground as Andrew Luck scrambled for a touchdown at training camp this week. Then he let the second-year quarterback have it. “You ain’t supposed to run,” Redding said loud enough to make a small group of onlookers laugh. It’s a telling tale about how much the expectations have changed in Indy. Three years ago, with Peyton Manning running the high-priced, high-scoring offense, defensive players may have thought like Redding, they just weren’t going to take on a four-time MVP at a public practice. Back then, the team philosophy was to win games by scoring points early, rushing the quarterback and protecting leads. When early playoff exits followed, the Colts were routinely criticized for not being big enough or tough enough. Coach Chuck Pagano refuses to let it happen again. The longtime defensive backs coach and former Baltimore defensive coordinator wants Indianapolis to resemble his old team by playing fast, aggressive defense with an attitude straight out of the Ray Lewis and Ed Reed school of thought.

Woods, McIlroy have much at stake in PGA Championship THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A deliberate game by its very nature, golf seems to hit warp speed this time of the year. Just 18 days after Phil Mickelson’s name was engraved on the silver claret jug at Muirfield as the British Open champion, the first tee shot will be launched at Oak Hill for the PGA Championship. And thus will end another major championship season.



Tiger Woods watches his tee shot on the 11th hole during the first round of the Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.

himself by tying his career best and building a seven-shot lead Friday through 36 holes at the Bridgestone Invitational. Pursuing his eighth victory at Firestone Country Club, Woods opened birdie-eagle — stuffing an approach to 3 feet at the first hole and holing a 20-footer for 3 at the par-5 second. He had two more birdies on the front nine, and had four in a row to start the



back nine in a light rain. The 61 — matching his career best at the 1999 Byron Nelson, 2005 Buick Open and on the same Firestone course back in 2000 — left him at 13-under 127. Defending champion Keegan Bradley and Chris Wood, playing the tournament for the first time, were tied for second. They each shot 68.

Cubs waste Lake’s 4 hits, lose 6-2 to Dodgers CHICAGO (AP) — Junior Lake wouldn’t say if he’s here to stay. It’s hard to envision him being sent back to the minors, now with the way he’s hitting. Lake became the first Cubs player to collect four hits twice in his first 16 major league games since at least 1916, and he was once again the lone bright spot for Chicago in a 6-2 loss to the surging Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday. “I don’t make the decision,” he said through an interpreter. Actually, he might be doing just that. It would be hard to justify sending Lake back to Triple-A anytime soon. After all, his average is at .358 since he got called up on July 19 and he’s the first major leaguer since St. Louis’ Bo Hart in 2003 to collect four hits twice in his first 16 games. Even with another eye-popping performance, though, the Cubs lost for the fifth time in six games. Mark Ellis extended his hitting streak to 13 games before both he and manager Don Mattingly were ejected, and the Dodgers matched an 89-year-old club record with their 12th straight road victory. Ellis doubled and scored in the third inning before being tossed by plate umpire Alan Porter when he and Mattingly argued a called third strike in the fourth, but that didn’t stop the Dodgers

in two runs. “Pretty cool. Since 1924 someone was saying. That’s really cool. This is a really special team.” Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig each added a pair of hits and scored a run for the Dodgers. Cardinals 13, Reds 3 David Freese set the tone with a bases-loaded double in the

first inning, and Daniel Descalso hit two of the Cardinals’ three homers as St. Louis pulled way to a 13-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Cardinals have emerged from a deep hitting slump by scoring 13 runs in each of their last two games. It’s the first time this season they’ve had double-

digit run totals in consecutive games. Shelby Miller (11-7) limited Cincinnati’s slumping offense to two singles over the first five innings before Joey Votto hit a three-run homer in the sixth. Bronson Arroyo (9-9) matched his season high by giving up seven runs in only 3 2-3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. Marlins 10, Indians 0 The strikeouts keep coming for rookie right-hander Jose Fernandez, while the winning streak has ended for the Cleveland Indians. Fernandez pitched eight innings and struck out 14, the most by an NL pitcher this season, to help Miami beat the Indians 10-0, snapping their eight-game win streak. Miami’s All-Star became the first major league pitcher to strike out at least 13 in consecutive games since Randy Johnson in 2004. He’s the first rookie to do so since Kerry Wood in 1998. Fernandez (8-5) set a Marlins record for the most strikeouts in consecutive starts. He had 13 Sunday in a win over Pittsburgh. Logan Morrison provided all the support Fernandez needed with four hits and four RBIs. Ubaldo Jimenez (8-6) needed 107 pitches to get through four innings. He allowed five runs, two earned.

PGA CHAMPIONSHIP: McIlroy has gone eight months since he last won a tournament FROM PAGE B1

without a major, the only measure that matters to Woods. McIlroy, at this point, would settle for a trophy of any size. The 24-year-old from Northern Ireland has gone eight months since he last won a tournament, and his life and game have never been under so much scrutiny. He switched out all his equipment by signing with Nike in the offseason. He is changing management for the second time in less than two years. That bounce in his step seems to be missing. He looks lost at times. Look back one year and not many would have guessed either player would be in this predicament.

McIlroy won the PGA Championship by a record eight shots, his second blowout victory in a major in as many years. He left Kiawah Island with the Wanamaker Trophy and the No. 1 ranking, and he did it wearing a red shirt on Sunday. For the first time, Woods had a worthy opponent who was younger. Woods ended another season without a major, though there were plenty of signs he was on his way back to the top of golf. He had three PGA Tour victories. He twice shared the 36-hole lead in majors. He was healthy enough to play a full schedule for the first time in five years. • •

The PGA Championship has been called “Glory’s Last Shot,” and it takes on even greater importance to Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, two of the game’s biggest stars. Which one is more desperate to win at Oak Hill? Woods is No. 1 again and likely to stay that way for the rest of the year. His four PGA Tour wins are twice as many as anyone else. He has a comfortable lead in the Vardon Trophy for the lowest adjusted scoring average, one of the most reliable measures of who consistently plays the best. But he is on the verge of going five straight seasons

One year later, the landscape for these two stars is far different. “I’ve won two in the last two years. It would be great to continue that trend and win another this year and make it three years in a row,” McIlroy said. “You know he’s got 14 (majors). I’ve got two. So I’d better try and catch up. So I think I need one more than he does.” Woods, who for years said a season cannot be considered great without a major, keeps trying to explain his 0-for-17 streak in the majors dating to his 14th title in the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. “Even though I haven’t won a major championship

in five years, I’ve been there in a bunch of them where I’ve had chances,” he said last month. “I just need to keep putting myself there, and eventually I’ll get some.” That’s not entirely accurate, depending on the definition of a serious chance of winning. Since returning from the scandal in his personal life after the 2009 season, Woods hasn’t been a factor in the final hour of any major. He didn’t go into Sunday at a major closer than four shots off the lead until last month at Muirfield. Woods was two shots behind, playing a fast, firm links course that was built for his game. And then he

three-putted for bogey twice in the opening four holes and was never a legitimate threat. “Obviously, Tiger has had a very, very good year,” said Jack Nicklaus, whose 18 majors remain the standard that Woods pursues. “He’s not finished off a couple majors he’s had an opportunity to be involved in. Would be pretty hard-pressed not to make him — if not the favorite, one of the favorites — going into Oak Hill. He’ll play Oak Hill well, and he’ll control his golf ball well and manage his game well, just as he does every week. “Will he win more majors? I think so. When? I don’t know.”

NOTRE DAME: Kelly has already named Rees the starter at quarterback FROM PAGE B1

“We have a contract and an agreement. We have people that are paid money to look at these contracts. They look at them very closely. They don’t operate as quickly as I would like to. But there are no issues contractually,” Kelly said. Kelly talking to the Eagles was one of many distractions that occurred for the Irish since the embarrassing 42-14

loss to Alabama. There was All-American linebacker Manti Te’o falling prey to an online girlfriend hoax and starting quarterback Everett Golson being suspended by the university for the semester for what he termed poor academic judgment. A highly touted defensive lineman also backed out of his letter of intent and is headed to UCLA. Kelly said none of that will

have any effect on this year’s team. “It was in the rearview mirror the next day. We don’t even think about it, don’t even talk about it. It’s history,” he said. Kelly said he decided to name quarterback Tommy Rees as the starter before the start of practice because of his experience. He said, however, that doesn’t mean the job is his for all season. “I made him the starter for

Temple. My expectation is that he would take the job and continue to lead our football team,” Kelly said. “He’s the most experienced. He’s won. He knows our offense very well. He’s a senior, well respected. He’s got all those things. It was really a quite easy decision.” Tougher decisions will have to be made at running back, linebacker and elsewhere, where the Irish lost veteran players.

COLTS: Indianapolis will begin preseason schedule on August 11 against Bills FROM PAGE B1

“You can see that swagger coming, right?” Pagano said. “Defensively, every time you step on the field, you expect greatness. You expect to make plays, create turnovers, stop the run. All those type of things.” The contrast from last season — and the last decade — is stark. Cornerback Darius Butler picked off Luck on two straight days and when he dropped another that would have extended the streak, he immediately dropped to the ground to do push-ups. Defensive backs are playing closer to receivers and jumping routes with better results. On Friday, when five-time Pro Bowler Robert Mathis beat left tackle Anthony Castonzo in a one-on-one blocking drill, Mathis walked

over to Castonzo and gave him a lesson on what he did. Linebackers and defensive backs are taking turns on the JUGS machines after Reggie Wayne wraps up his daily post-practice routine. And the chatter on the defensive line is constant as they try to outwit Luck. “They are playing with a fun confidence and they are really pushing our guys on offense, myself included, to really make plays and they’re flying around,” Luck said. “I am sure Year 2 in the defense, there are a lot of guys that are more familiar. They can play faster and don’t have to think about it as much. So it’s been a challenge and been fun going up against those guys.” How have the Colts made this transformation?

Pagano, Irsay and general manager Ryan Grigson all wanted to bring in bigger bodies to stop the run and defend the new breed of NFL receiver, tall and strong. In free agency, the Colts divvied up their money more evenly between offensive and defensive players, something that never really happened during the Manning Era. The offense, revamped by new coordinator Pep Hamilton, may be a little behind the defense, too, since Hamilton is still installing plays. Luck and his offensive teammates looked better Friday than they had all week when the defense was holding its own — or winning — in many of the team drills. By bringing in a group of free agents such as defensive linemen Aubrayo Franklin and

Ricky Jean Francois, safety LaRon Landry and linebacker Erik Walden, the Colts can rely on more physical play thanks to their comfort in Pagano’s system. “I look for the defense to take a jump, to become formidable and become something that really starts being a cornerstone of what we’re about,” Irsay said Friday after his first visit to camp at Anderson University. “We want to be a really physical unit and a consistent unit.” The Colts were saying the same things at Anderson last summer, but wound up 20th in interceptions (12), 23rd in sacks (32), 26th in total yards allowed (374.3) and 31st in yards allowed per carry (5.1). The tests begin Aug. 11 when Indy opens the preseason against Buffalo.


SPORTS BRIEFS • Tursunov, Petkovic reach Washington semifinals WASHINGTON (AP) — Dmitry Tursunov of Russia overcame 13 doublefaults with the help of 15 aces and beat a cramping Marinko Matosevic of Australia 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (4) Friday at the Citi Open to reach his second semifinal this season. The 61st-ranked Tursunov made it to the semifinals at Washington’s hard-court tournament for the first time since 2006. He will face No. 8-seeded John Isner or No. 16-seeded Marcos Baghdatis. Andrea Petkovic of Germany got to the women’s semifinals with a 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 victory over Paula Ormaechea of Argentina. Petkovic, a former top-10 player whose career was sidetracked by injuries, had lost three of her previous four matches before arriving in Washington. The 64th ranked Petkovic will play No. 4 Alize Cornet or No. 5 Sorana Cirstea for a berth in the final.

Running back Michael Dyer says he will play for Louisville LOUISVILLE (AP) — Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer is transferring to Louisville and will play for the Cardinals this season. Arkansas Baptist College president Fitz Hill, who mentored Dyer at the Little Rock school the past academic year, said Friday that Dyer has applied for admission to Louisville and will report next week in time for the start of fall practice on Tuesday. Dyer announced his intention to play for the Cardinals in a letter written with Hill’s assistance and issued by the school. Louisville and coach Charlie Strong cannot confirm Dyer’s decision or comment on the 2011 BCS championship game MVP until he has officially enrolled. He has not played since 2011 and will be eligible immediately. Louisville is coming off an 11-2 season that ended with a Sugar Bowl victory against Florida. The Cardinals have already been picked as the overwhelming favorites to win the American Athletic Conference and have star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater leading the offense. Adding Dyer could give a huge boost Louisville’s running game. The Cardinals averaged only 122 yards per game on the ground last season and the top two tailbacks on their depth chart ó Senorise Perry and Dominique Brown ó are both coming off knee injuries. Dyer, who attended high school in Little Rock, ran for more than 1,000 yards in each of his two seasons at Auburn, but left the school after the 2011 season and transferred to Arkansas State. He never played for Arkansas State after getting suspended after a run-in with the law, though he was never charged with a crime. Dyer was cited for speeding and a handgun was improperly confiscated from the car by a state trooper.

MLS suspends three players after last weekend’s games NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Soccer suspended three players for their actions in games last weekend. Real Salt Lake’s Yordany Alvarez was suspended three games Friday for a reckless challenge on New York’s Tim Cahill, while Philadelphia’s Keon Daniel and Colorado’s Hendry Thomas were each suspended one game. Daniel was cited for “an act of violent conduct” because he kicked the ball after a whistle while Whitecaps midfielder Jun Marques Davidson was on top of it. Then Davidson head-butted Daniel in the back and was sent off. Thomas committed a reckless challenge on Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Hector Jimenez. He also has a one-game suspension to serve for accumulating yellow cards, so he will miss the Rapids’ next two games.

ASU Hall of Famer Wilford White dies at 84 PHOENIX (AP) — Wilford “Whizzer” White, the father of former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Danny White and a member of the Arizona State hall of fame, has died at the age of 84. The former Sun Devils running back died Thursday. White was an ASU running back from 1947 to 1950 and finished his career as the school’s all-time leading rusher with 3,173 yards, one of only four players in school history to rush for more than 3,000 yards. He now ranks fourth among the school’s all-time leading rushers. White led the Sun Devils to nine wins for the first time in the school’s history, and his 1,502 yards rushing in 1950 remain the second-highest mark in a single season at ASU. White’s 48 career touchdowns are the second most in school history. He was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1951. White’s son, Danny, was a Sun Devils quarterback from 1971 to 1973 before going on to play 13 seasons for Dallas.

Lajoie wins ARCA race LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Corey Lajoie won the ARCA Series race at Pocono Raceway on Friday for his second victory in three career starts. Lajoie also won two weeks ago at Chicagoland Speedway. Frank Kimmel, the series points leader who is tied with Iggy Katona for the ARCA career victory record with 79, was second. Justin Boston was third.




China remains No. 1 Bacterial canker seen in area buyer of U.S. soybeans DES MOINES — China imported $13 billion worth of soybeans from the United States in 2012, making it the largest single commodity the U.S. exported to China in terms of value, according to U.S. Soybean Export Council China Director Zhang Xiaoping. “China is the U.S. number one soybean buyer,” Zhang said. “The soybean has played an important role in China-U.S. agricultural trade relations, accounting for more than 50 percent of total U.S. exports to China.” Without the Chinese market, both soybean production in the U.S. its related industries would not have grown to its current scale of more than 31 million hectares of land producing 90 million metric tons of soybeans, he said. “Since 2003, China has been a dominant U.S. soybean importer, with a 36 percent share of total US soybean exports that year. In 2012, China’s share was up to 60 percent,” he said. Current USDA forecasts


China is expected to import 69 million tons of soybeans in 2013-14 from the United States, with states such as Indiana, Illinois and Iowa providing much of that grain.

predict that China will import 69 million tons of soybeans in 2013-14, up 17 percent from the 2012-13 level of 59 million tons. The U.S. is the largest producer of soybeans in the world and China buys about 25 percent of its crop. Iowa led the nation in soybean production in 2012.

Iowa produced 414 million bushels of soybeans last year, according to Dustin Vande Hoef, communications director for the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. “Around 100 million bushels of Iowa soybeans were exported to China,” he said.

Purdue, Ohio State to combine efforts WEST LAFAYETTE — Purdue University will once again partner with Ohio State University to help present educational programming and exhibits at the 2013 Farm Science Review. The Review runs Sept. 17-19 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio. This year marks the 51st time Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will offer the farm trade show, which merges agricultural education,

I have received several calls and visited homes this week where homeowners are seeing symptoms that look like insects are eating their cherry and peach tree leaves. Upon further inspections, I noticed cankers on the branches ELYSIA and trunks of the trees. RODGERS All of these symptoms led me to see that bacterial canker has taken a hold of several trees in our area. Janna Beckerman, assistant professor of plant pathology at Purdue University, provided some information about bacterial canker: Bacterial canker is a serious disease of stone fruit caused by the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae (PSS). Disease outbreaks are more frequent on sweet cherry than on sour cherry, and the pathogen is also regularly found infecting peach in Indiana. The pathogen attacks most parts of the tree, with cankers forming on branches and trunks while leaves on cankered branches often wilt and later die in summer or early autumn when girdled by a canker. These cankers often exude gum. Leaf spots develop after prolonged wet, cold weather during or shortly after bloom. Spots are dark brown, circular to angular, and sometimes surrounded with yellow halos, and can create severe problems, when infected leaves drop later in the growing season. In the following year after severe infection infected leaf and flower buds may not develop in the spring (called “dead bud”), or buds may break and open in spring, only to collapse

science and technology through presenters, exhibitors, vendors and field demonstrations. “Farm Science Review is a premier event and a great way to showcase the partnerships between Purdue and Ohio State, which extend well beyond the event,” said Jay Akridge, Glenn W. Sample Dean of Purdue Agriculture, which will be a partner for the ninth consecutive year. “We’re proud to be part of the mission of the Review, which brings together education and technology

in agriculture to help ensure a successful future for this industry.” More than 130,000 visitors from the U.S. and Canada attend the show each year to learn about advances in agricultural research, conservation, family and nutrition, landscape and gardening. Nearly 4,000 product lines will be on display by 600 vendors. Each day, Review attendees can participate in a variety of harvest, tillage, global positioning and manure demonstrations.

in early summer. Canker infections begin during bloom and are associated with frost injury, or extended periods of cool, wet weather. PSS bacteria overwinter in symptomless dormant sweet cherry buds and grow and quickly colonize flowers as they emerge from the bud. In a typical winter, about 30-40 percent of the buds are colonized, which rapidly leads to 100 percent colonization of flower clusters in the spring. The severity of frost damage plays a critical role in the occurrence of subsequent wood invasion and canker formation. The level of PSS bacteria in trees is reduced during the summer months, as the bacterial cells are inhibited by temperatures above the mid-80s and dry conditions. The pathogen will become reactivated by cooler temperatures in the fall, with wind and rain serving to disseminate cells to leaf scars during leaf drop. The bacteria colonize the leaf scars and migrate to dormant buds where they will overwinter. While highly effective management strategies for bacterial canker are not available, the best tactics include using copper and correctly timed pruning. To avoid issues with phytotoxicity, copper rates used are 25-35 percent of the dormant rate or about 0.5 to 0.7 pounds of metallic copper per acre and can be used up to the white bud or popcorn stage. Copper can also be applied in early spring before trees break dormancy. At this timing, use copper at higher rates, up to 2 pounds of metallic copper per acre, with 6-9 pounds of hydrated lime per acre. Copper can also be applied in the fall during leaf drop. When leaves are falling, temperatures are typically cooler, and these periods can also be windy and rainy. Time of pruning can

have important effects on the subsequent occurrence of bacterial canker of sweet cherry. Pruning should never be done during or immediately prior to wet weather. Pruning wounds are vulnerable to infection by PSS, and the wounds allow the bacterium ready access to internal tissues of the tree. Summer pruning is also better than spring pruning from a disease-management standpoint because the PSS pathogen becomes inactive following extended periods of warm temperatures in the mid-80s and higher, and is also inactive during extended warm, dry periods. There is an additional possibility that the tree is physiologically better able to withstand PSS infection during summer months. Besides pruning for horticultural purposes, all visible cankers should be pruned out as well.

July’s job gain a modest 162,000

Iranian leader: Occupation of Palestine a ‘wound’

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. economy is steadily adding jobs — just not at a consistently strong pace. July’s modest gain of 162,000 jobs was the smallest since March. And most of the job growth came in lower-paying industries or part-time work. The unemployment rate fell from 7.6 percent to a 4½-year low of 7.4 percent, still well above the 5 percent to 6 percent typical of a healthy economy. The rate fell because more Americans said they were working, though some

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s president-elect called Israel’s control of Jerusalem and Palestinian lands a “wound” for the Islamic world in relatively moderate remarks Friday that contrasted with the harsh rhetoric of his predecessor and other Iranian leaders. Speaking to reporters during an annual pro-Palestinian rally, Hasan Rouhani said: “In our region and under occupation of Palestine and dear Jerusalem, there has been a wound on the body of the Islamic world.” The comments, two days before Rouhani’s inauguration, were tame compared with those frequently made by outgoing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calling for Israel’s destruction. The country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, once called the Jewish state a “cancer” that needed to be cut away.

people stopped looking for a job and were no longer counted as unemployed. All told, Friday’s report from the Labor Department pointed to a less-than-robust job market. It suggested that the economy’s subpar growth and modest consumer spending are making many businesses cautious about hiring. The report is bound to be a key factor in the Federal Reserve’s decision on whether to slow its bond purchases in September, as many economists have predicted it will do. Some

think July’s weaker hiring could make the Fed hold off on any pullback in its bond buying, which has helped keep long-term borrowing costs down. Friday’s report said employers added a combined 26,000 fewer jobs in May and June than the government had previously estimated. Americans also worked fewer hours in July, and their average pay dipped. For the year, job growth has remained steady. The economy has added an average of 200,000 jobs a month since January,

though the pace has slowed in the past three months to 175,000. Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Global Insight, called the employment report “slightly negative,” in part because job growth for May and June was revised down. Scott Anderson, chief economist at Bank of the West, said it showed “a mixed labor market picture of continued improvement but at a still frustratingly slow pace.” The reaction from investors was muted.

averages closed with modest gains. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.6 percent from 2.71 percent — a sign that investors think the economy remains sluggish and might need continued help from the Fed. Beth Ann Bovino, senior economist at Standard & Poor’s, said she thinks the Fed will delay any slowdown in its $85 billion a month in bond purchases. “September seems very unlikely now,” she says. “I’m wondering if December is still in the cards.”

Chaotic Congress takes a break Egyptian forces to cordon off protest sites

Brian Williams to take leave from NBC anchor desk NEW YORK (AP) — NBC News anchor Brian Williams will be off the air for a few weeks soon for surgery to replace a knee that was damaged in a high school football game decades ago. Williams Yet in what may be a sign of increased competitiveness in an evening news ratings race that Williams, 54, has dominated for several years, NBC News would not say Friday when Williams would go under the knife. Spokeswoman Erika Masonhall would say only that Williams will anchor “Nightly News” on Monday. Lester Holt will anchor the nightly news while Williams is away.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The accomplishments are few, the chaos plentiful in the 113th Congress, a discourteous model of divided government now beginning a five-week break. “Have senators sit down and shut up, OK?” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blurted out on Thursday as lawmakers milled about noisily at a time Sen. Susan Collins was trying to speak. There was political calculation even in that. Democrats knew the Maine Republican was about rip into her own party’s leadership, and wanted to make sure her indictment could be heard. Across the Capitol, unsteady bookends tell the story of the House’s first seven months in this two-year term. Internal dissent among Republicans nearly toppled Speaker John Boehner when lawmakers first convened in January. And leadership’s grip is no surer now: A routine spending bill was pulled from the floor this week, two days before the monthlong August break, for fear it would fall in a crossfire between opposing GOP factions. A few weeks earlier, Boehner suggested a new standard for Congress.

“We should not be judged on how many new laws we create. We ought to be judged on how many laws that we repeal,” he said as Republicans voted for the 38th and 39th time since 2011 to repeal or otherwise neuter the health care law known as Obamacare. Reaching for a round number, they did it for a 40th time on Friday, although the legislation stands no chance in the Democratic Senate and the GOP has yet to offer the replacement that it pledged three years ago to produce. House Democrats claimed to hate all of this, yet couldn’t get enough. After attacking virtually every move Republicans made for months, they demanded the GOP cancel summer vacation so Congress could stay in session. The break, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said, “shows shocking disregard for the American people and our economy.” To be sure, there have been accomplishments since Congress convened last winter, although two of the more prominent ones merely avoided a meltdown rather than advancing the public’s preferred agenda. A closed-door session helped produce compro-

mise over President Barack Obama’s stalled nominations to administration posts and important boards — avoiding a blow-up that Republicans said would follow if Democrats changed the Senate’s filibuster rules unilaterally. Months earlier, at the urging of their leaders, House Republicans agreed to raise the government’s debt limit rather than push the Treasury to the brink of a first-ever national default. Legislation linking interest rates on student loans to the marketplace passed, and, too, a bill to strengthen the government’s response to crimes against women. Two more measures sent recovery funds to the victims of Superstorm Sandy. Among the 18 other measures signed into law so far: one named a new span over the Mississippi River as the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge, after the late baseball legend. Another renamed a section of the tax code after former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas. A third clarified the size of metal blanks to be used by the Baseball Hall of Fame in minting gold and silver commemoratives: a diameter of .85 inches in the case of $5 gold coins, and 1.5 inches for $1 silvers.

protest camps, saying that one man had his throat cut and another was stabbed to death. In southwestern Cairo, police fired tear gas at Morsi supporters who rallied in front of Media City, a site housing most of Egypt’s private TV stations, a security official said. A second official told the state news agency that protesters tried to “obstruct traffic in an attempt to affect work at the complex.” The rally was “a desperate attempt by rioters from the (Islamist) current,” Maj. Gen. Abdel-Fattah Othman, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry, told the private TV station Mehwer. “There was reinforcement from police and army that will not allow any reckless person to get close to the Media City or storm it.” He described the protesters as “brainwashed” to attack broadcasters perceived as secular opponents of the Islamists. Last year, Morsi supporters held a sit-in near Media City, often harassing TV personalities and forcing many of them to sneak into the studios from other entrances.

CAIRO (AP) — Authorities outlined plans Friday to break up two sit-ins by supporters of deposed President Mohammed Morsi, saying they would set up a cordon around the protest sites, and riot police used tear gas to disperse demonstrators threatening a TV complex. Morsi backers also showed their defiance by briefly setting up a third camp near the airport, but later folded their tents and left. The military-backed interim government seeks to end a political stalemate that has paralyzed Egypt and deeply divided the country. Supporters of Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood say they will not disperse until he is returned to power. The second-ranking U.S. diplomat arrived in the Egyptian capital for talks on the political crisis, as Secretary of State John Kerry warned both sides that “the last thing we want is more violence.” Also Friday, Amnesty International reported cases of alleged killings and torture at the hands of Morsi supporters inside the

Boyfriend is bad influence on daughter DEAR ABBY: I am a 17-year-old girl who lives with my mother and my mother’s boyfriend. This man has changed my world, and not for the better. The one person I ever cared about has practically turned against me. My mom tried killing herself for this man and chose him over me after she was released from the institution. I have been diagnosed with depression and have also tried to kill myself. I also have a habit of cutting myself. I stopped, but lately I have been wanting to start again. The only thing that has held me back is her threats of committing me to an institution. She threatened my boyfriend with the police if he ever spoke to me again after we broke up. When I confronted her, she insisted that she was right and someday I’d understand. She has turned into this person




you honestly do want to harm yourself, contact the doctor who diagnosed you with depression. However, if this is about your mother breaking up your romance by threatening to involve the police, you need to understand that the tactic wouldn’t have worked unless he had something to fear. The level of conflict in your home is not healthy. If you are still in school, discuss this with a trusted teacher or school counselor. In one more year you will be 18 and able to make decisions for yourself, but they shouldn’t be based on your mother or her boyfriend. They need to be about what is truly best for you. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Gestational diabetes requires monitoring lampsia. And your baby is at higher risk for prematurity, lung problems at birth and stillbirth. To prevent these complications you’ll need to carefully control your blood sugar through the remainder of your pregnancy. You may be able to do this by managing ASK your diet. If DOCTOR K. diet does not control your blood glucose, doctor Dr. Anthony your will prescribe Komaroff insulin. Insulin will not harm your baby as long as you closely monitor your blood sugar to keep it at safe levels. It is really important that your obstetrician follow you

and your baby carefully during pregnancy, and during labor and delivery. Gestational diabetes can create complications during delivery. That’s because your baby may be larger than normal. Why? Because the baby is exposed in the womb to your high sugar levels. If the baby is too big to exit the birth canal, natural childbirth may be difficult. For this reason, many doctors recommend inducing labor or delivering by surgery if you haven’t naturally delivered your baby by 38 weeks. Complications also can affect your baby right after birth. Before delivery, your baby’s pancreas has been making large amounts of insulin because of the high sugar levels in your blood. The minute your baby is born, she is disconnected from your blood supply. For a brief time, there may be too much insulin in your baby’s blood, given the normal amount of sugar in her

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: I was just diagnosed with gestational diabetes. What are the risks to my baby? And what do I need to do to keep her safe? DEAR READER: Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that occurs during pregnancy. Normally, the hormone insulin moves sugar (glucose) from the bloodstream into cells that use it for fuel. In gestational diabetes, hormones produced during pregnancy make the body resistant to insulin’s effects. In most pregnant women, the pancreas produces extra insulin to overcome the insulin resistance. In women with gestational diabetes, the pancreas does not produce enough extra insulin. As a result, sugar accumulates in the bloodstream. If your gestational diabetes is not treated carefully, you are at increased risk of high blood pressure and swelling, a condition called pre-ec-

I hardly know, and it’s because of her boyfriend’s influence. Before, when she was upset she would just not talk to me, but now she calls me the most horrid things and won’t apologize unless someone DEAR besides me her. ABBY tells I feel so alone. I honestly do Jeanne Phillips want to kill myself, but I haven’t because I know it isn’t the right thing to do, even if it may seem right. I have tried talking to her. She won’t listen to me. What should I do? — HOPELESS AND ALONE IN FLORIDA DEAR HOPELESS AND ALONE: Because

blood. As a result, dangerously low blood sugar may result. If necessary, your baby will be given sugar to counteract this. Once the baby is born, the hormones that make the body resistant to insulin go away, and the high blood sugar levels return to normal — until your next pregnancy. However, once you have had gestational diabetes you are also at increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes later in life. So protect yourself: After your pregnancy, reduce your risk with exercise and diet. What I’ve written may sound frightening: Gestational diabetes does increase your and your baby’s risk for various health problems. But with careful medical care, and possibly with lifestyle changes, you can protect both yourself and your baby. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is
