GOOD MORNING Ex-teacher files suit over firing HAMMOND (AP) — A former teacher and boys’ basketball coach at a northwest Indiana high school acquitted of child seduction charges in June has filed a lawsuit against the school district, alleging he was improperly fired. Benjamin Chinn, who now lives in Indianapolis, filed his lawsuit against School City of Hammond Thursday in U.S. District Court in Hammond. Chinn was fired from Morton High School last year after a former student, 17, accused him of kissing her and engaging in sexual activities in his classroom and office. A jury deliberated about three hours before finding him innocent. Chinn contends in his lawsuit the district notified him in a letter that he was suspended without pay but never informed him he had any rights, such as the right to a hearing. Chinn also contends the school board sent a notice of a vote about whether to renew his contract to an address where it knew he no longer lived.

Abducted woman found safe Police hunt for person of interest BY MATT GETTS

ROME CITY — A woman who was abducted late Wednesday was found early Friday morning and is safe, police said. Jennifer Lee Bitzel of Peru was located in Rome City by that town’s police department, a news release from the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department said. “It’s great that it ended this way,” Rome City Town Marshal Steve Heltzel said. “We’re pleased she’s been located and that at least she wasn’t terribly hurt,” said John Parrish, investigator for the LaGrange County Prosecutor’s Office. Parrish said Bitzel has bruising to

her head, face and throat. Bitzel’s Facebook page says she was a member of the East Noble High School class of 2003 and previously lived in Rome City. Police still are searching for Steven Gail Gose, 40, who is believed to be involved in the abduction. Lagrange County Superior Court Judge Brown has issued an additional warrant for Gose on charges of criminal confinement, a Class C Felony, and two Class D felony offenses, domestic battery and strangulation. Gose also currently has an active warrant for his arrest on a parole violation. Anyone who spots Gose is urged

to contact the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department or call 911. Gose should still be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached by anyone other than law enforcement, police said. “We have found him to be unpredict- Bitzel able and dangerous when confronted by law enforcement,” Parrish said. Police said Gose is 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds. The investigation has revealed that several people have been involved with transporting, hiding and assisting Gose, police said. The LaGrange County Prosecutor’s office said anyone who assists Gose

ALBION – What a difference a year makes. Last fall, Rachael Bender said, her family-owned orchard, Bender’s Orchard, “barely produced enough apples to make a good pie.” This year, however, apples at the southern Noble County orchard are in abundance. “Yes, yes, and we’re very happy about that!” Bender exclaimed. “We have a really good crop of apples this year, and it looks great!” Apple growers across northern Indiana are reporting bumper crops of apples this year, only one year after suffering through last season and what might have been the worst apple crop harvest on record. “It’s as good this year as it was bad last year,” said LaGrange County apple grower Martin Franke. “We’ve got a lot of apples.” Franke’s apple operation produced less than one-quarter its normal yield last year. His farm, like others in the area, was slammed by 2012’s strange twist of weather. First, spring came early to northern Indiana last year, with the area basking in record warm temperatures by mid-March. That springlike weather caused apple trees to produce blossoms early — blossoms that later were damaged or killed when normal cold and frosty weather returned to Indiana

in April. What few Indiana apples managed to survive the frost then had to endure a two-month-long drought. “I had about 35 percent of my normal crop last year,” said Rick Meyer of Kendallville’s Orchard Hills Farms. Meyer operates one of the largest orchards in the area, with trees covering more than 70 acres. His farm is a major wholesaler of apples, and like Bender and Franke, Meyer agreed that this is a great year for Indiana

also is committing a crime, and each lead on those who are assisting him will be looked into and considered for prosecution accordingly. Police said Bitzel had last been seen at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday at a residence in the 3000 block of Gose LaGrange C.R. 600E. It is alleged that at the residence, Bitzel was the victim of an extensive battery. She then was removed forcefully from the residence by a man who allegedly made death threats to Bitzel before forcing her into a silver, 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix, four-door sedan, bearing Indiana registration 543AIB.

His farm grows dozens of different varieties of apples, including honeycrisp, a very popular sweet and tart apple that Meyer said will be a huge crop this season. “We have a big crop of just about everything,” Meyer said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The GOP-controlled House voted Friday to cripple President Barack Obama’s health care law as part of a risky ploy that threatens a partial shutdown of the government in a week and a half. The fight is coming on a stopgap funding measure required to keep the government fully running after the Oct. 1 start of the new budget year. Typically, such measures advance with sweeping bipartisan support, but tea party activists forced GOP leaders — against their better judgment — to add a provision to cripple the health care law that is the signature accomplishment of Obama’s first term. Republicans welcomed the vote, saying the new health care law is a disaster that is forcing cutbacks in workers’ hours, raising health insurance premiums and being implemented unfairly. House Republicans have voted more than 40 times to disable all or part of the health care law. “There’s no reason the American people should have to face this train wreck,” said Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga. The partisan 230-189 vote sets the stage for a confrontation with the Democratic-led Senate, which promises to strip the health care provision from the bill next week and challenge the House to pass it as a simple, straightforward funding bill that President Barack Obama will sign. “Republicans are simply postponing for a few days the inevitable choice they must face: Pass a clean bill to fund the government, or force a shutdown,” said Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The White House promises Obama will veto the measure in the unlikely event it reaches his desk. At a post-vote rally by House Republicans, Speaker John



Area counties see unemployment rates improve INDIANAPOLIS — Improvement in the state unemployment rate was magnified in the area in August, as all four northeast Indiana counties saw their unemployment rate drop by a percentage point or more. “The significant decrease in Indiana’s unemployment rate in August is definitely encouraging, but the fact is too many Hoosiers are still unemployed,” said Scott B. Sanders, commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. “This underscores the need to bring unemployed individuals into WorkOne following their fourth week of receiving benefits. It is vital we get folks on the path to reemployment as soon as possible.” Reports released Friday by the

DWD said DeKalb, LaGrange and Steuben counties each saw their unemployment rate fall by 1 percentage point from the revised July figures. LaGrange County’s unemployment rate dropped to 7.2 percent in August, while DeKalb County’s dropped to 7.4 percent and Steuben County’s dropped to 7.5 percent. Steuben County was tied for 38th in the monthly ranking of the state’s 92 counties. Noble County saw its unemployment rate drop 1.1 percentage points to 7.3 percent in August. DeKalb, Noble and Steuben counties did each see a slight drop in their labor force for the month, and Steuben County saw the number of employed workers drop by 29.

However, LaGrange County, despite seeing its labor force rise, saw its number of unemployed workers drop below 1,000 in August. Allen County saw an even larger drop in its unemployment rate, falling from 8.7 percent in July to 7.1 percent in August. “Retooling has wrapped at several major manufacturers, likely contributing to the positive dynamics month-over-month as workers have returned to those production lines. The year-overyear improvement in the region’s unemployment rate is strong and notable (7.0 percent vs. 8.3 percent), pointing to longer-term progress in strengthening the northeast Indiana labor market,” said Ellen Cutter, director of the Community

LEAP of Noble County opens new Kendallville location BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — LEAP of Noble County executive director Denise Lemmon and board president Dr. Matt Will welcomed staff members, board members and patrons Friday morning to the new Kendallville Learning Center site at 132 S. Main St. in downtown Kendallville. The learning center had been located for more than six years in South Side Elementary School in partnership with the East Noble School Corp. The new location has more space and heightened visibility in the community where LEAP staff provide small group and one-on-one tutoring. The Kendallville Learning Center currently serves 28 K-12 students, according to Melina Parks, the center’s coordinator. The center has two part-time staff members and is open four days a week for after-school tutoring. “It means the younger ones who may have been students at South Side have to find transportation to get here, but they’re doing it,” said Parks. LEAP of Noble County Inc., the Literacy Empowering and Advocating Project, provides community-based literacy programs to

KENDALLVILLE — A substance-abuse prevention specialist will be the guest speaker at the Northeastern Center’s annual dinner on Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Shipshewana Conference Center in Shipshewana. The event begins at 6 p.m. with a dinner followed by the guest speaker. Registration is at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $15, and reservations can be made by calling Stacie Chronister at 347-2453. Todd Crandell, a professional counselor, licensed chemical dependency counselor and founder and president of Racing for Recovery, will speak about his own struggle

with drugs and alcohol and how substance abuse affects more than just the abuser. His message is “With Sobriety, Anything is Possible.” According to biographical information provided by Northeastern Center marketing coordinator Michael Stiegmeyer, Crandell’s 13-year struggle devastated his relationships with family and friends, shattered a promising professional hockey career and nearly destroyed his life. He has dedicated his life to achieving the goal of preventing substance abuse in adolescents and individuals and offering a positive alternative to those battling addiction. Crandell quit using drugs

on April 15, 1993, and began rebuilding his life. To maintain his sobriety and give himself a purpose in life, Crandell chose to compete in the Ironman Triathlon. He ran his first triathlon in 1999 and has never stopped. An ironman triathlon race consists of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run. Crandell has completed 10 ironman events all over the world, and in 2008 he was the only person in the world to complete the Ultraman Hawaii and six days later complete Ironman Western Australia. In 2009 he completed Ultraman Canada and became one of 23 individuals in the world to have completed both

Ultraman triathlons. Utlraman triathlons are held over three days. On the first day, competitors do a 6.2-mile ocean swim and a 90-mile cross country bike ride. On the second day is a 171.4-mile bike ride, and on the third day competitors run a 52.4-mile double marathon. Each day’s event or events must be completed in 12 hours or less. Crandell’s success in these endurance races led to his forming Racing for Recovery. His book “From Addict to Ironman,” co-written with John Hanc, tells his story of substance abuse and recovery. The public is invited to attend the dinner and meet Crandell.

Make trade, not war What’s up with so many Democrats wanting missile strikes on Syria, while Republicans balk? I’m told Republicans are the war party. Is this just hypocrisy? Politicians change their position on military intervention when their own party controls the White House? Historian Thaddeus Russell says it’s not. He says it’s always been “progressive” Democrats who led America into war: Woodrow Wilson in World War I, FDR in World War II, Truman in the Korean War, Kennedy and Johnson in Vietnam and Bill Clinton in Somalia and Kosovo. Russell says the progressives like “nation-building” because it fits their view that government can reform the world “not just in the ghettos, but outside our borders. Anywhere we find the we must go out and JOHN oppressed, save them.” Of course there are the STOSSEL neoconservatives, such as William Kristol, who were pro-war under both Bush and Obama. “The so-called neocons who drove us to war in Iraq actually all began in the Democratic Party. They all began as progressives,” says Russell. “They supported intervention in Iraq to remake Iraq in our image, and they support intervention in Syria to do the same.” Both neocons and progressives call those of us who oppose most intervention overseas “isolationist.” A Wall Street Journal column complained about “the isolationist Let us trade with people worm eating of every nation. It’s said its way through the that when goods cross Republican borders, armies don’t. Party apple.” On the left, History backs that up. Secretary of State John Kerry declared, “This is not the time for armchair isolationism.” I resent the smear. “Isolationist” suggests that anyone who objects to killing people in foreign countries (mostly people who have never attacked us) wants to “isolate” America, withdraw from the world. Before World War II, American?isolationists did fight to prevent refugees who were escaping Hitler from coming to America. Isolationists also opposed trade and immigration. That’s nuts. We libertarians who are skeptical about war today are nothing like that. I want to be engaged with the world without us being in charge of it. Let us trade with people of every nation. It’s said that when goods cross borders, armies don’t. History backs that up. A report funded by several governments found that the level of armed conflict in Muslim countries is lower today than two decades ago, and trade is the reason. You’re less likely to bomb the people with whom you engage in commerce. Preferring trade to government action may not sound “progressive” to progressives, but it’s not a surrender to evil or a withdrawal from global affairs. As we trade goods, we also export our ideas and our culture. I don’t claim that this will end all conflict, but it is harder for radicals to make you hate people who sell you things, inspire you to change your hairstyle or make movies that make you laugh. When the Soviet Union fell, conservatives said it happened because of Ronald Reagan’s military buildup. OK, that played a part. But so did American music. In 1988, Bruce Springsteen held a concert in East Berlin, and even there, behind the Iron Curtain, 160,000 people came to hear him perform. And they knew the words to “Born in the USA” and sang along. Springsteen stopped his performance and told the crowd he hoped one day all the barriers would be torn down. One year later, the Berlin Wall did come down. I don’t claim that America’s culture, consumer goods or Bruce Springsteen was entirely responsible for that, but the obvious comparison between Soviet repression and America’s vibrancy did play a part. Eventually, people in the Soviet bloc wanted what we had. These cultural and economic influences work, and they are less likely to create new enemies and bankrupt America than bombing and invading. So let tourism flow. Let our music alarm mullahs. Let neocons donate books to the Middle East filled with ideas dictators hate. Let our cell phones expose isolated people to the wonders of the free world. There are times when we have to go to war, but real progress means making those times as rare as possible.

It’s good to call home a place off of Route 20 Ever since the Waltzing Poet has danced my way, I have been reading his book, “Twenty Days on Route 20.” I gave a copy of the book to Kathy, and she read it on a road trip last weekend with her sisters. What a great idea, I thought. It is my turn to make a short road trip this week on Route 20. I am on the clock working for Indiana Landmarks and Storytelling Arts of Indiana as I begin my interviews for my newest research project, the Brookside Mansion in Fort Wayne. My destination on this day is the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration in Mishawaka. My traveling companions include my black binder, my interview notes, my camera, my GPS and Michael’s book. We take to the road in the morning. The sky is brilliant blue with a nice breeze; in fact, enough of a breeze that all my papers need to be placed on the floor of the backseat. I am on Route 20. I have, of course, traveled this way so often before, but today I am seeing it for what it is or what it was. Did you know that it is the longest road in the United States? It begins in Boston and ends in Newport, Ore., just a mile from the Pacific Ocean. The road was often given the title as “Mud Pike” as it came through Indiana from Ohio. The name was earned genuinely, I believe, due to the mud holes that would pull down wagons and their horses as they traveled through. I watch the scenery of cornfields. The corn, which was August green just a few weeks ago, has now turned to crispy brown waiting the harvest season just around the

full moon. My drive to Mount Alverno takes me off the road into a mass of woods and fields with small gardens of sunflowers to brighten the pathway. Sister Jo Ellyn Scheetz is waiting for me in the sunroom and we begin our interview. Sister Jo Ellyn is a brilliant woman, having taught for more than 35 years and holding the presidency of St. Francis College, now St. Francis University, for 23 years. We talk about the history of the Sisters in Germany, LOU ANN their travel to the United States and their journey to HOMAN- begin St. Francis College in Wayne. For two hours SAYLOR Fort I listen, I write and I ask questions. In the peripheral vision of my eye, I watch the slanting of the sun move quietly over fields and woods. She is tired, and it is time for me to go. I promise to go back. I think I always promise. Route 20 waits for me to travel home. This time there are yellow school busses weaving in and out of schools and small towns as children hurry home and run outside to play in these waning days of summer. I arrive into my hometown to be welcomed by streets blocked off as old cars adorn the circle and the small streets for the “Cruise In” on this night.

We gather, friends and family, on the streets of my town abandoning our cars and bikes to walk and enjoy. Each antique car is shined to perfection and the owner willing to talk or sell, if the price is right. Everyone is joyous. The mood is infectious as we greet friends, take photos and let the kids run about exclaiming over each car. We order pizza and sit outside. We are sitting on the side of Route 20. I pull away into my own thoughts for a while trying to think it through … the wagons, the horses, the folks going west or stopping because this would be a good place for a town. I listen to folks telling stories about cars or families. The pizza arrives just as the lights come on around the circle and the monument. In the east the full Harvest Moon makes her appearance. She seems to be a bit early, but the harvest moon is the one closest to the equinox, so there she is giving us the sign of harvest. Folks begin packing up babies and bags and cars and still we sit in the early darkness, not wanting the evening to end. Larry and Sherry give Jonah and Matthew a ride home in their restored Jeep, and I take photos as they travel off in time. I am last to leave. Yes, I think, a good place to stop and call home. LOU ANN HOMAN-SAYLOR lives in Angola at the White Picket Gardens where you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, teacher, writer, actress and a collector of front porch stories.

Colorado races to fix roads before winter hits BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — With snow already dusting Colorado’s highest peaks, the state is racing to replace key mountain highways washed away by flooding, in some cases laying down crude, one-lane gravel roads just to throw a lifeline to isolated towns before winter descends. More than 200 miles of state highways and at least 50 bridges were damaged or destroyed across this rugged region, plus many more county roads. Fully rebuilding all of them is sure to take years. But for now, the work has to be fast, even if that means cutting corners. “Our priority is to reconnect these communities as quickly as we can, recognizing that we’re in a very tight timeframe,” said Amy Ford, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Transportation. In many other parts of the country, road crews would be able to work through the fall and much of the winter. But in the Rockies, the cold weather comes earlier, stays longer and brings with it countless dangers. The first storms could hit as soon as next month. That urgency was underlined this week when Trail Ridge Road, the high-elevation path through Rocky Mountain National Park and one of the few supply routes into the town of Estes Park, was temporarily closed because of snow. It normally stays open until October. Colorado is looking East for advice, specifically to Vermont, where Tropical Storm Irene dumped up to 11 inches of rain in August 2011, sweeping away homes, roads, bridges and farm fields and killing

six people. After the mountains flooded, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper quickly flew in experts from Vermont, which also faced a winter deadline two years ago. “The big picture is that you’re going to get through this, and you’re going to recover stronger, but it is a long haul,” said Sue Minter, deputy secretary of the Vermont Agency of Transportation, who has been assessing Colorado damage. “Two years later, we’re still recovering from Irene.” Scott Rogers, Vermont’s director of transportation, said the immediate challenge is putting road material in place that can be maintained through winter. “We had to put pavement down before it snowed so that roads could be plowed,” Rogers said. “And in many cases, it was just a temporary pavement. We knew we would have to come back and do it better.” Expediting repairs before winter is crucial, especially in the Front Range’s mountainous corridors, which receive heavy snowfall. Rerouting some washed-out roads may be all but impossible because many of them follow streamside trails used by settlers chasing gold and silver in the mid-1800s. The steep Rocky Mountain foothills offer no other access. Canyon hamlets such as Jamestown, Lyons and Pinewood Springs lost roads when as much as 20 inches of rain fell last week, transforming ravines into lethal funnels of rushing water powerful enough to fling boulders and large trees and generate 20-foot waves.

U.S. and Iran eye diplomatic defrosting at United Nations WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and Iran’s new president may meet briefly next week for the first time, marking a symbolic but significant step toward easing their countries’ tense relationship. An exchange of letters between the leaders already has raised expectations for a revival of stalled nuclear talks, though Iran is still likely to seek an easing of international sanctions in exchange for significant progress. In small steps and encouraging statements, Iran’s leaders appear to be opening a door more widely to detente in their nuclear dispute with

the U.S. Cautiously optimistic yet still skeptical, Washington is weighing whether Iranian President Hasan Rouhani’s recent overtures actually represent new policies or just new packaging. “Negotiations with the Iranians is always difficult,” President Barack Obama said in a recent interview with ABC News. “I think this new president is not going to suddenly make it easy. But, you know, my view is that if you have both a credible threat of force, combined with a rigorous diplomatic effort, that, in fact, you can strike a deal.”

Al-Qaida attacks in Yemen SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Under a heavy fog, al-Qaida militants disguised in military uniforms launched car bomb attacks on three different security and military posts in southern Yemen on Friday, killing 38 soldiers in the group’s biggest attack in the country since last year. The coordinated attacks point to how al-Qaida is exploiting the continued weakness of Yemen’s military to rally back here at a time when the group’s branches across the region grow more assertive. More than two years after U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, factions of the group he led are taking advantage of turmoil in multiple Arab nations to

expand their presence and influence. In Syria, foreign jihadis linked to or inspired by al-Qaida have become such a powerful force in the rebellion that the Syrian opposition on Friday accused them of being opportunists hijacking the uprising against President Bashar Assad. After the coup in Egypt toppled the Islamist president, al-Qaida leaders have called on sympathizers to join militants’ fight there against the military. Iraq’s al-Qaida branch has stepped up attacks in that country and extended operations into neighboring Syria. Last month, the U.S. temporarily closed 19

diplomatic missions across the Middle East and North Africa after intelligence agencies intercepted a message between al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri and Nasser al-Wahishi, also a one-time confidant of bin Laden who leads the Yemen branch, known as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. “I think there’s been a promiscuous rush to write al-Qaida’s obituary, and it’s always been presumptuous. It’s certainly had setbacks ‌ but its resilience has always been more formidable than we imagine,â€? said Bruce Hoffman, director of the Center for Security Studies at Georgetown University.



AVILLA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend visited Friday to bless a new assisted living facility in Avilla, located in a longtime senior citizen apartment complex. The Most Rev. Kevin C. Rhoades, bishop of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, blessed the new Presence LaVerna Terrace Assisted Living apartments, including all in attendance and all thresholds in the building, during a half-hour ceremony with scripture readings, prayers and singing. At the same ceremony, Elaine Shank was introduced as the new administrator of Presence LaVerna Terrace. The event celebrated a double transition for the building, explained Craig Procupek, administrator of Presence Sacred Heart Home, which has been operating LaVerna Terrace. Both are part of Presence Health, a Catholic health provider. LaVerna Terrace started as senior citizen apartments, Procupek said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now licensed as an assisted living provider, with an emphasis on affordable care. Also, the building itself

has had a new expansion, with a common area at the front in which most of Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration took place, Procupek said. Presence Health recently underwent a name change. It had been known as Provena Health. Both Sacred Heart Home and LaVerna Terrace used the Provena name until recently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a beautiful, beautiful mission,â&#x20AC;? Rhoades said Friday. The importance of caring for people who need that care is a loving act in Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, he said. On recent remarks from

Pope Francis, Rhoades said one he found most powerful was not one of those on which the media has focused. When asked to describe himself, including his life before becoming pope, Rhoades quoted Francis as saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first thing you need to know is, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a sinner.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so true of all of us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all sinners,â&#x20AC;? Rhoades said. Christ is the one who saves us from our sin, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pray for this home that this is a place you will grow closer to Christ.â&#x20AC;?

APPLES: Harvest wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappoint this season FROM PAGE A1

just big, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good crop, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say all in all, qualityand quantity-wise, this is best weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in years,â&#x20AC;? said Garry Stroh, owner of G.W. Stroh Orchard, just outside Angola. Stroh said his orchard probably did better last year than most other area orchards, but this year, he said, it appears all the fruit crops are exceptional. Strohâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm produces apples, peaches and plums. Stroh has about 15 acres of trees in full production on his farm. Like other growers, he said his trees sprouted so many apples, and were so heavy with fruit, that earlier this summer, Stroh had to knock some of the fruit off the branches in order to protect his trees. Stroh said he started picking some of his early varieties of apples in July, but his fruit trees are so full of apples, he estimates heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll still be picking fresh apples all the way through October. Besides fresh apples,


A red delicious apple tree is loaded with apples waiting to be picked. Apples were in short supply in the area last year, but are plentiful this year.

most orchard owners also produce and sell apple cider, and that promises to be a bumper crop as well this season. Frankeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fruit farm already is pressing cider, and he estimates that he probably will still be pressing cider in December. Last year, Franke was able to make only four batches of cider, and that quickly sold out. He was left with no cider to ferment into apple vinegar, another

orchard crop. All of this is good news for apple consumers, who Bender said were disappointed last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People missed apples last year. It was just an unfortunate thing,â&#x20AC;? said Bender, whose orchard produces more than 30 different varieties of apples. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great year, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful crop. What a difference from one year to the next.â&#x20AC;?

Boehner, R-Ohio, called the measureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval â&#x20AC;&#x153;a victory today for the American peopleâ&#x20AC;? and turned the spotlight on the Democratic Senate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our message to the United State Senate is real simple: The American people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the government shut down, and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want Obamacare,â&#x20AC;? he said to cheers from his GOP colleagues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The House has listened to the American people. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for the United States Senate to listen to them as well.â&#x20AC;? The temporary funding bill is needed because Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longstanding budget stalemate has derailed the annual appropriations bills required to fund federal agency operations. The fight over the must-do funding bill comes as Washington is bracing for an even bigger battle over increasing the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s borrowing cap to make sure the government can pay its bills. Democrats say they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be held hostage and allow Republicans to use the must-pass measures as leverage to win legislative victories that they otherwise couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Obama said at a unionized Ford Motor Company plant in Liberty, Mo., Friday: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

raise the debt ceiling, America canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay its bills.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Congress doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass this debt ceiling in the next few weeks, the United States will default on its obligations. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never happened in American history. Basically, America becomes a deadbeat,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. The No. 2 House Democrat, Steny Hoyer of Maryland said the GOP ploy is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;blatant act of hostage-takingâ&#x20AC;? fueled by Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;destructive obsession with the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and its unrestrained hostility towards government.â&#x20AC;? Republicans countered that the measure is required to prevent a government shutdown that would delay pay for federal workers, send non-essential federal workers home, close national parks and shutter passport offices. Essential programs like air traffic control, food inspection and the Border Patrol would keep running, and Social Security benefits, Medicare and most elements of the new health care law would continue. Even before Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House vote, lawmakers were looking a couple of moves ahead on the congressional chessboard to a scenario in which the Democratic Senate would remove the â&#x20AC;&#x153;defund Obamacareâ&#x20AC;? provision and kick the funding measure back to the

House for a showdown next weekend. GOP leaders havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t said what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do then, but with the deadline looming at midnight on Monday, Sept. 30, a further volley of legislative ping pong that prolongs the impasse could spark the first shutdown since the 1995-96 battle that helped resurrect President Bill Clintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will not accept just a clean CR at this point. There will be a fight,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., using shorthand for the stopgap spending bill, which is officially called a continuing resolution. An earlier plan by Boehner and other GOP leaders was designed to send a straightforward bill to keep the government running through Dec. 15, but ran into too much opposition from tea party members who demanded a showdown over the Affordable Care Act, the official name of what Republicans have branded Obamacare. Boehner has sought to reassure the public and financial markets that Republicans have no interest in either a partial government shutdown when the budget year ends or a first-ever default on a broader set of U.S. obligations when the government runs out of borrowing ability by mid- to late October.

West Noble’s Levi Nelson (40) is chased down the field by the Lakeland defense in Friday’s NECC game played in Ligonier.

LIGONIER — Lakeland’s defense led the way as the Lakers’ football team remained undefeated and pretty much untouched in the Northeast Corner Conference with a 33-0 win over West Noble Friday night. The game, played under a light drizzle, saw Lakeland score two touchdowns early in the first quarter to take control of the game and never look back. The Lakers move to 5-0 on the season while the Chargers slip to 1-4. Lakeland has put 190 points on the board this season and given up only 39 in five games. That formula was followed against the Chargers. “Our defense had them in the red zone a couple of times but we made some big plays and stopped them,” said Lakeland coach Keith Thompson. “And our offense

made enough big plays to get us on the scoreboard.” West Noble managed to earn 163 yards — 81 on the ground and 82 in the air — but just couldn’t find the end zone. Lakeland, meanwhile, racked up 149 yards in the air and 226 on the ground while scoring touchdowns in all but the second quarter. Thomas Roebel rushed for 72 yards for Lakeland while Quinten Bender ran for 60 yards and Taylor Raatz rushed for 53. Lakeland’s Joel Miller had a big night catching the ball from quarterback William Kelly, pulling down two passes for 86 yards while Kyle Casper also caught two for 36 yards. West Noble was playing without several key offensive players, including its starting quarterback (Landon Stover), receiver (Brandon Moser) and rusher (Payton Shrock.) All three were on the sidelines, out with


EMMA — Different year, but the teams are the same. West Noble and Westview earned spots in Saturday’s NECC tournament chmpionship games with semifinal victories on Friday. Westview beat the Chargers 3-2 in last season’s tournament championship game. “The rematch — we want this,” said West Noble’s Uriel Macias, who scored three times on Friday as the Chargers defeated Angola 5-0 in the first semifinal. “I remember the disappointment of not getting last year’s title. This one would mean everything.” Westview beat Eastside 7-0 in the second semifinal. Goalkeepers Jonathan Moreno and Joeuany Reyes combined for the shutout for West Noble. Moreno made six stops in the first $


half and Reyes stopped five shots in the second half. The Hornets kept the potent Chargers off the scoreboard for nearly 27 minutes at the outset. “We held them for the first thirty minutes, then just ran out of gas,” said Angola coach Dusan Friga. “They’re a quality team. What got us was the two games back-to-back. The guys were tired.” Macias struck with the first Charger goal on a header in front of the goal past Angola keeper Hayden Cowen. “It was a beautiful cross from Abel (Zamarripa),” Macias said, “I just finished.” West Noble struck again when Cowan came out to retrieve a shot. The ball got past and Chris Najera placed the ball in the corner of an open net with 5:32 to play in the first half. Macias struck again




with 52 seconds left in the half on a shot in front of the goal, giving the Chargers a 3-0 margin at the break. Angola had its best chances early in the second half, but couldn’t connect. Sixteen minutes into the second half Macias found himself one-on-one in front of the net with Cowan and was able to slip a shot past the Hornet keeper for a 4-0 margin. Less than a minute later Abel Zamarripa made in 5-0 with a score in front with an assist from Macias. Westview 7, Eastside 0 Bucky Carpenter scored two early goals and five different Westview players added goals as the Warriors upended Eastside. Lindon McDonald, Lincoln McDonald, Nate Geradot, Micah Hunsberger and Jacob Berkey added goals.

injuries. The Chargers’ substitute quarterback, Waylon Richardson, performed well for not having much practice time. He was 9-of-21 for 82 yards in his varsity debut. “Waylon stepped in and did a good job for us,” said West Noble coach Monte Mawhorter. “We had a good plan and the kids executed well. But they (Lakeland) threw some long passes that we just weren’t fast enough to stop them,” Mawhorter added. “At the end, we were just wore out. We had too many kids going both ways.” Levi Nelson carried the ball 13 times for the Chargers, gaining 84 yards. He also caught three passes for another 20 yards.

KENDALLVILLE — There is just something about Carroll that brings out the best in the East Noble defense. History has shown the Knights have performed especially well against the Chargers, keeping Carroll inside of 25 points in every meeting for the last 10 years. Friday night, the Knights turned it up again. East Noble forced the Chargers into eight turnovers and choked a powerful offense to the tune of a 27-7 victory. “These kids just wanted it more this year. They really wanted it last year (in a 24-20 loss), but this year we took it to a whole different level. You don’t cause (eight) turnovers and not win many times,” East Noble assistant coach and defensive coordinator Pete Kempf said. “We put in a few adjustments at halftime and they (the defense) just flew with it. We had an awesome performance tonight.” Carroll quarterback Chandler Boggs was already under a lot of pressure in the first half, but the changes at the break put him under more stress. Kempf and Co. added more stunts with the front seven and loaded the box as the rain came down and the Chargers tried to

Cougars upended 35-20 in NECC game at Fremont BY KEN FILLMORE

FREMONT — A good start and a whole lot of Nate Beatty lifted Fremont to a 35-20 homecoming victory over Central Noble Friday night at the Max Mitchell Memorial Sports Complex. Beatty rushed for 246 yards on 33 carries, had three touchdowns, and also intercepted a pass on defense. The senior standout scored on the Eagles’ first offensive play of the game on a run up the middle that he broke and turned into a 75-yard scamper. “You can’t ask for a better start than that,” Fremont coach Nick Maksimchuk said. Fremont (2-3, 1-3 NECC) took a 21-7 lead at halftime. Beatty had

152 of his rushing yards in the first 24 minutes, and senior teammate Brock Baker scored on a 6-yard run and on a 24-yard reception off a play-action pass from Kaleb Hayes. The Eagles forced three of the Cougars’ four turnovers in the first half, and also had a safety early in the second quarter as Cougar quarterback Brock Noe recovered a mishandled snap in the end zone. Four plays into the second half, Beatty scored from 45 yards out and Jake Pelham tacked on the extra point to put FHS up 28-7. But senior Garren Deck emerged in the second half for Central Noble (0-5, 0-5) to make things interesting. He beat the Fremont defense to the outside for a couple of big runs and had

touchdown runs of 4 and 35 yards 2 minutes, 11 seconds apart in the third quarter and the Cougars only trailed 28-20 with 2:20 left in the stanza. After squibbing and bouncing short kickoffs all game long to keep away from Beatty, Central Noble was too firm and too direct with Beatty after Deck’s second touchdown. Beatty cleanly fielded Jordan Gibbs’ groundball kickoff, found an opening and turned it up the Eagles’ sideline for a 67-yard touchdown return. “Jordan Gibbs did a great job with kickoffs, but that one got away from him a little bit,” Cougars coach Jeremy Yates said. “You can’t give No. 11 (Beatty) much space because he is dangerous in the open field.”

The Cougars moved the ball on their ensuing drive from their 27-yard line to the Fremont 17. But CN was called for a holding penalty to slow the drive, then Hunter Leskowyak intercepted a Noe pass deep in Eagle territory. Fremont followed by possessing the ball for seven minutes in the fourth quarter to take more wind out of the Cougars’ sails. “We just did simple stuff, not many plays in a lot of formations, and it worked,” Maksimchuk said. “But we let them score twice in the second half. We lost contain and didn’t do our assignments. There’s a lot of emotions in a homecoming game. But we made corrections, and you have to give our offensive line a lot of credit.” Central Noble has now lost 30

straight games dating back to the 2010 season. But Yates said the spirits are still pretty high with his squad. “The kids are still upbeat and hanging in there,” Yates said. “I think the guys have kept good attitudes and the right mentality after the first three games (with NECC leaders Fairfield, Churubusco and Lakeland). They’ll keep pushing on.” The Cougars had more yards given by Fremont in penalties than they had in total offense (116). The Eagles had 11 penalties for 130 yards, including a few personal fouls. “There were some calls I never heard of before,” Maksimchuk said. “But we can’t change the calls and we have to live with it.”

Scherzer wins 20th game, Red Sox clinch AL East title Tigers rout White Sox 12-5 DETROIT (AP) — Max Scherzer became baseball’s first 20-game winner Friday night, pitching through bad weather for six innings to help the Detroit Tigers to a 12-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Scherzer (20-3) was making his fifth attempt at win No. 20. He had two losses and two no-decisions in his previous four starts before Friday’s victory on a rainy night. Torii Hunter had four hits for Detroit, and Victor Martinez homered. Dylan Axelrod (4-10) allowed seven runs in 2 2-3 innings. The AL Central-leading Tigers lowered their magic number to eliminate secondplace Cleveland to three. Former Tiger Avisail Garcia hit a two-run homer for Chicago. Scherzer’s previous career high was 16 wins last year, and he’s been terrific this season from the start. He began with a 13-0 stretch and remains among the front-runners for the American League Cy Young Award. By the middle innings, the biggest obstacle between Scherzer and win

No. 20 was probably the weather. It was raining at the start of the game, and although the teams played through it, there was always the possibility of a delay that could have knocked Scherzer out before he could pitch the required five innings for the victory. Detroit’s offense did its part, scoring two runs in the first, one in the second, four in the third and five in the fifth. With the rain falling and umbrellas showing up throughout the crowd, Scherzer allowed three runs and six hits. He walked one and struck out three. Scherzer was receiving a major league-high 6.66 runs of support on average before Friday’s game — and the Tigers quickly added to that figure. Braves 9, Cubs 5 Chris Johnson went 3 for 4 with a home run, and Atlanta beat Chicago 9-5 on Friday to reduce its magic number to clinch the NL East to one. The Braves broke open a tie game in the top of the ninth with four runs — all with two outs. Brian McCann and Johnson had RBI singles, and Andrelton Simmons followed with a

two-run double. Freddie Freeman earlier hit a three-run homer for Atlanta. David Carpenter (4-1) pitched a scoreless eighth to get the win. Kevin Gregg (2-5) took the loss for the Cubs, who wasted three home runs. Atlanta starter Paul Maholm, twice staked to a four-run lead, allowed eight hits and four runs in 5 1-3 innings. Chicago’s Scott Baker allowed five runs and four hits in four innings. Reds 6, Pirates 5 Joey Votto homered off Kyle Farnsworth in the 10th inning for Cincinnati, which got three unearned runs in the ninth to tie the game and pulled even with Pittsburgh for the top wild-card spot in the National League. Cincinnati pushed across the three runs off closer Mark Melancon to tie it and Votto won it an inning later with his 24th homer. JJ Hoover (5-5) earned the win for the Reds, who have won four straight. Aroldis Chapman worked the 10th for his 38th save. Francisco Liriano overwhelmed the Reds, allowing two runs and three hits.

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox clinched the AL East title on Friday night, getting seven strong innings from Jon Lester to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 and eliminate Tampa Bay from the division race. One night after securing their first playoff appearance since 2009, the Red Sox added their first division title since ‘07. Boston entered the night with a magic number of one — meaning the next Red Sox win or Rays loss would clinch the division. Lester (15-8) allowed one run on five hits

and two walks, striking out eight to win for the seventh time in nine decisions. It was his 100th career victory. Toronto pinch-hitter Adam Lind hit a two-run homer off Junichi Tazawa in the eighth to make it 5-3 before Koji Uehara got five outs for his 20th save. With the crowd standing for most of the final inning, he struck out Brett Lawrie to end the game and the Red Sox poured out of the dugout and bullpen. Dustin Pedroia had three hits for the Red Sox, who have won 19 of their last 25.

Toronto starter Esmil Rogers (5-8) did not make it out of the third inning, allowing two runs on three hits and five walks and striking out two while getting only seven outs. NOTES: Lester is the 11th pitcher in Red Sox history to record 100 victories, and just the third left-hander. ... Toronto CF Colby Rasmus was beaned by a warmup throw before the bottom of the first inning. He was replaced in the lineup by Pillar. ... John Farrell is the seventh manager to lead the Red Sox to the playoffs in his first year on the job.

ONE LARGE 2-TOPPING PIZZA 0725 W 700 S • Wolcottville, IN 260-854-3000


East Noble’s Grey Fox, left, pulls in a reception during the first half of Friday

night’s conference game in Kendallville. The Knights won 27-7.

KNIGHTS: East Noble tallies 209 offensive yards FROM PAGE B1


“It was a total team effort tonight,” Mapes said. “I was just staying back on my heels and playing off a bit. It also helped having all the guys up front getting in the quarterback’s face and making him throw it quick.” With the victory, East Noble improves to 4-1 and is 2-1 in the NHC. It received a huge boost from Bellmont, which defeated Homestead on Friday, leaving New Haven as the lone undefeated team in the conference. The Knights now control their own destiny with a matchup against the Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0 NHC) looming in three weeks. However, East Noble can not overlook its next two opponents. The Knights travel to Ossian to face Norwell on Friday and then have Columbia City on Oct.

“We are going to focus on Norwell. We are going to continue to focus on Norwell and have a great competitive week of practice,” EN head coach Luke Amstutz said. Not to be overlooked, the East Noble offense took advantage of the opportunities given to it. All five of the team’s scores came following a Carroll turnover. Walker Boyles, who was key on both sides of the ball, especially with Brandon Mable out of the lineup, stripped the ball from Carroll’s Zac Edgar following a reception to help set up the first East Noble score. Quarterback Bryce Wolfe later scored from four yards out to put the Knights on the board three minutes into the game. Boyles had two scores of his own. The Knights were stuffed

twice from inside the one-yard line before Boyles found pay dirt on fourthand-goal with 11:17 left in the first half. He also scored on a 44-yard pass play from Wolfe when he ran a wheel route out of the backfield in the third frame. East Noble tallied 209 yards of total offense against the Chargers, including 134 on the ground. Boyles finished with 24 yards on 13 carries and a score. Jacob Brown had 63 rushing yards. Kempf and Amstutz both said the offensive line was key in the victory. “That offensive line … This game was on their backs. We came out and Carroll is sticking eight in the box … We have five offensive linemen and we kept shoving it down their throats. That’s what I like to see. That’s East Noble football,” Kempf said.

LAKERS: 3 big NECC games remain for Lakeland FROM PAGE B1

A few minutes later in the opening quarter, Taylor Raatz caught a 22-yard pass from Miller good for another seven points. Marco Olivares kicked both extra points for a 14-0 Lakeland lead. In the third quarter, Miller and Kelly connected on a 69-yard touchdown

pass, and Olivares’ third PAT of the night put Lakeland ahead 21-0. The Lakers scored twice in the fourth quarter, as Roebel ran in from three yards out and Bender rushed in from 21 yards for the final score of 33-0. Thompson said his team is taking the season one game at a time. The Lakers

are home Friday against Eastside before closing out the season against Churbusco and Fairfield; games that will help decide the conference champion. “We’re just trying to get better every week,” Thompson said. “We control our destiny.” West Noble travels to Churubusco next week.

Steelers at early crossroads as Bears visit PITTSBURGH (AP) — The meeting was intimate and brief. Following his team’s first 0-2 start in more than a decade, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and safety Ryan Clark huddled with remaining players from the club’s last Super Bowl title in 2009 and tried to plot a course forward. While a pep talk certainly doesn’t hurt, it can’t score a touchdown or force a turnover. “It’s not like it’s a magic solution,” Roethlisberger said. Perhaps because there isn’t one. The Steelers enter Sunday night’s game against the unbeaten — if not exactly unbeatable — Chicago Bears (2-0) ranked near the bottom of the league in every major offensive category. Pittsburgh can’t run it, can’t throw it deep and can’t seem to find its way to the end zone with any regularity. “It’s as frustrating as it gets right now,” running back Isaac Redman said. “I don’t think anybody expected this.” And it’s only going to get worse if the Steelers can’t find a way to keep up with the resilient Bears. Chicago’s perfect start is the byproduct of a pair of fourth-quarter rallies, the latest a 10-play, 66-yard drive in the final minutes against Minnesota last Sunday. It ended with a 16-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jay Cutler to tight end Martellus Bennett that lifted the Bears to a 31-30 victory. “We’ve had a few things go

our way, a few fourth-quarter plays went our way,” Cutler said. “We’re obviously happy to be 2-0 but we realize there is a lot of work ahead of us.” Here are five things to look for as Pittsburgh tries to win a game and Chicago tries to establish itself as a threat in the NFC under first-year coach Marc Trestman. CONTENDERS?: The Steelers’ list of problems is about as long as their roster. A 3-0 start would boost the argument that the Bears are for real, at least in the NFC North. A loss, on the other hand, would raise all sorts of questions. After all, they had to rally to beat Minnesota in the closing seconds, and that came on the heels of a season-opening win over Cincinnati when they trailed by 11 in the third quarter. YOUR TURN FELIX: The Philadelphia Eagles considered running back Felix Jones so expendable they traded him to Pittsburgh last month for linebacker Adrian Robinson, who didn’t even make the team. Jones impressed Steelers coach Mike Tomlin enough during last week’s loss to Cincinnati to get another turn at the wheel against the Bears. Jones still has the burst that made him a first-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys back in 2008. He’ll need it to find holes behind an offensive line that isn’t exactly dominating at the line of scrimmage. Pittsburgh’s 75 yards rushing this season is less than 34 individual players, including



Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester (23) runs with the ball against the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday.

four quarterbacks. HESTER’S HAVOC: The most encouraging sign for the Bears last week likely was Devin Hester’s performance. He returned five kickoffs for a club-record 249 yards against the Vikings and reminded everyone else that he still can be a game-changer. That was one of the big questions coming into this season after he was ineffective a year ago. His longest kickoff return in 2012 was for 40 yards. He exceeded that

three times last week, including a 76-yarder after right after Cordarrelle Patterson returned the opener 105 yards and an 80-yarder in the second quarter. CREATING CHAOS: Pittsburgh’s defense remains one of the league’s best, but the Steelers are no longer making the kind of splash plays necessary to flip the field. Pittsburgh is one of two teams (Oakland is the other) that has yet to create turnovers and it has just one sack through two games. An interception here or a fumble recovery there could go a long way to help boost the offense’s confidence: “We need to put people in bad situations behind the sticks,” Clark said. “(That) allows us to do what we do best, which is rush the quarterback, create pressure, sack-fumbles and cause bad throws.” PANIC TIME: The Steelers dropped their first two games in 2003 before catching fire under journeyman quarterback Tommy Maddox and earning a wild-card berth. They’ve never made it to the postseason starting 0-3. While Roethlisberger and coach Mike Tomlin believe mid-September is hardly the time to panic — and in the, so far, anemic AFC North, they might be right — Pittsburgh can’t afford to lose any more ground. “A win would solve or help heal some wounds that we have right now, but for us it’s still early in the season,” Roethlisberger said. “And it’s a home game, so we think all those are must wins.”

SPORTS BRIEFS • Henrik Stenson builds 4-shot lead at East Lake ATLANTA (AP) — Henrik Stenson made three birdies on the opening four holes at East Lake to quickly seize control and shot 4-under 66 to build a four-shot lead over Adam Scott in the Tour Championship. Stenson was at 10-under 130 going into the third round and might be playing a course far less firm. The forecast is for rain most of day, and the starting times have been moved up to Saturday morning with hopes of getting it in. Tiger Woods was 14 shots behind. It was the first time since the 2011 PGA Championship that Woods began a tournament with back-to-back rounds over par. Jordan Spieth, the 20-year-old rookie, had a 67 and was five shots behind. U.S. Open champion Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson and Billy Horschel were another shot back. Stenson (No. 2) and Scott (No. 3) are among the top five seeds in the FedEx Cup who could take home the $10 million bonus simply by winning the Tour Championship. Woods could still win the FedEx Cup if both of them falter, which is looking unlikely halfway through the tournament. Scott has even more at stake — a win might be enough for him to win PGA Tour player of the year.

Tsonga and Simon reach Open de Moselle semifinals METZ, France (AP) — Top-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga stayed on course for his third straight Open de Moselle title by beating Germany’s Tobias Kamke 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the semifinals on Friday. Saturday’s other semi is an all-French match between Gilles Simon and Nicolas Mahut. Simon beat sixth-seeded Sam Querrey 6-4, 7-6 (1). Simon, who did not face a single break point, next plays countryman Nicolas Mahut after he beat Germany’s Benjamin Becker 6-2, 6-4.

House votes to cut nearly $4 billion in food stamps WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has voted to cut nearly $4 billion a year from food stamps, a 5 percent reduction to the nation’s main feeding program used by more than 1 in 7 Americans. The 217-210 vote was a win for conservatives after Democrats united in opposition and some GOP moderates said the cut was too high. Fifteen Republicans voted against the measure. The bill’s savings would be achieved by allowing states to put broad new work requirements in place for many food stamp recipients and to test applicants for drugs. The bill also would end government waivers that have allowed able-bodied adults without dependents to receive food stamps indefinitely. House conservatives, led by Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., have said the almost $80 billion-ayear program has become bloated. More than 47 million Americans are now on food stamps, and the

program’s cost more than doubled in the last five years as the economy struggled through the Great Recession. Democrats said the rise in the rolls during tough economic times showed the program was doing its job. Finding a compromise — and the votes — to scale back the feeding program has been difficult. The conservatives have insisted on larger cuts, Democrats opposed any cuts and some moderate Republicans from areas with high food stamp usage have been wary of efforts to slim the program. The White House has threatened to veto the bill. House leaders were still shoring up votes on the bill just hours before the vote. To make their case, the Republican leaders emphasized that the bill targets able-bodied adults who don’t have dependents. And they say the broader work requirements in the bill are similar to the 1996 welfare law that led to a decline in people receiving that government assistance.

“This bill is designed to give people a hand when they need it most,” Cantor said on the floor just before the bill passed. “And most people don’t choose to be on food stamps. Most people want a job … They want what we want.” The new work requirements proposed in the bill would allow states to require 20 hours of work activities per week from any able-bodied adult with a child over age 1 if that person has child care available. The requirements would be applicable to all parents whose children are over age 6 and attending school. The legislation is the House’s effort to finish work on a wide-ranging farm bill, which has historically included both farm programs and food stamps. The House Agriculture Committee approved a combined bill earlier this year, but it was defeated on the floor in June after conservatives revolted, saying the cuts to food stamps weren’t high enough.

The best part of the fair is … The DeKalb County Free Fall Fair is finally upon us. Growing up in Hillsdale County, Mich., their fair was always the last week of September, so it was a natural fit for me here in DeKalb with their fair falling the same week. For me fall, corresponds with fair, and it isn’t fall without one. Back ELYSIA in July, when most RODGERS county fairs are, Clayton Rye, a farmer from Hanlontown, Iowa, wrote the following for The Farmers Exchange: So while you are eating the wonderful food and playing the fun games on the midway, make sure you check out the animal and nonanimal exhibits down on the fairgrounds that celebrate the hard work and dedication of the youth that participate in our 4-H program. Fair season is approaching, and it is time for me to give my annual reminder encouraging everyone to go to the fair and not to miss the best part of the fair. What is the best part of the fair? Besides the grandstand events, the food, the midway, and just spending a day seeing people who are doing the same thing you are doing, the best part of the fair is in the livestock barns and displays by the 4-H and FFA members. It is not so much the livestock and displays that are great (well, yes, they are), but those wonderful, amazing kids who have spent hours preparing their projects for the fair are truly great. The projects can have four or two legs, long or short ears, feathers, be a family pet, made of steel or paper or cloth or wood, or on a plate or in a vase.



County fairs provide millions of Americans with fond memories of their youth, as well as a chance for people with shared interests to gather together and celebrate the good things in life.

I have a soft spot for the livestock barn, because a walk through the barn will show these young people wearing shorts and a T-shirt with a brush in one hand and a garden hose frequently in the other. An hour later, those same young people will be wearing a clean shirt and as well groomed as the animals they just spent time preparing for the judging event. In the show ring, the animal is led, herded or pulled along as the judge looks over the entries. The sorting begins with the better entries being selected until the top entrant receives that coveted ribbon for best of show. It is a joyful moment for that winner. For everyone else, there’s always next year. It is a good lesson in life. Rewards go to those who make the extra effort in their pursuit of excellence. It is the spirit of competition that makes excellence. It is another lesson that while those extra efforts were made, the judge may not see them or they are not what the judge is looking for. Yes, it is not fair, but the judge’s decision is final. It is another important life lesson to learn about disappointment and how to handle it, including those times when you believe the judge is wrong. It is usually in those

disappointments where we learn our best lessons and how to grow from them. So, for any 4-H and FFA members reading this, just know if it were up to me, all of you would get a blue ribbon. But that is not in the spirit of competition, and it cheapens the meaning of what a blue ribbon represents. This is also a good time to thank those 4-H and FFA leaders who keep projects, kids and the paperwork moving. The motivation has to start somewhere and the leader is just that. These are the people who are always there standing a few feet away, offering encouragement and making sure that the rules of safety are followed. I find it really something that a cow, a restored tractor, a photograph and a plate of brownies all have the same thing in common. They were made possible by parents, a leader and, of course, the exhibitor who will be leading a bucket calf today and in coming years, a 1,300-pound steer that is halter broke. It is definitely the best of show. See you at the fair. ELYSIA RODGERS is the agriculture and natural resources director for the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service in DeKalb County.

Many farmers in the Midwest are seeing healthy corn crops with near-record yields expected. Corn

growers really will start to see the full effect of more domestically produced nitrogen in 2015.

Ag economist: 2013 to be a transition year for farmers WEST LAFAYETTE — Changes in the economics of grain production after drought led to record-high farm incomes in 2012 could mean a shift in the demand for and prices of agricultural inputs for the 2014 crop, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist says. The 2012 drought-ravaged crop left short supplies and high demand, with farmers receiving high prices for the grain they were able to produce and high insurance indemnities on covered crops that were destroyed. High grain-farm incomes capped a series of years with abnormally high grain prices. But with some drought relief in major corn- and soybean-production states leading to expected higher yields and lower commodity prices, grain farmers can expect to see changes in what they pay for inputs, such as seed, fertilizers, fuels and chemicals, for the 2014 crop. An apparent shift in market demand for corn and soybeans also could play a major role in what it will cost growers to produce the next crop, Alan Miller said. “The markets are currently saying they want more soybeans and less corn in 2014, which changes the demand for inputs,” he said. “For example, growers don’t need as much nitrogen fertilizer if they are growing less corn. That ultimately will affect the prices of inputs.” The big story in 2014 crop production costs, Miller said, is fertilizer prices. Potash and phosphate prices have been declining since the fall of 2012 and are down 15-17 percent since last spring. Nitrogen prices peaked last spring and have dropped about 22 percent this fall. Farmers’ ability to apply fertilizer this fall will help determine what prices will look like for next spring. “If weather or a late harvest were to keep farmers from applying fertilizers this fall, it could drive fertilizer prices down for the spring,” he said. “Normally, fertilizer prices hit bottom in the early fall, but we will have to wait and see is if the market is weak enough to sustain the drop into the spring.” Nitrogen prices also are falling because the U.S. is now a low-cost producer. North American fertilizer producers are expecting historically strong sales this fall. During the height of the ethanol boom, farmers were growing more corn and using more nitrogen. Plus, natural gas prices were high. Since then, natural gas prices have fallen, which has led to renewed interest in investing in domestic production capacity for nitrogen fertilizers. This leads to greater supplies of U.S.-produced nitrogen in the future if the cost

of producing it here stays well below its market price as it is now. “Corn growers really will start to see the full effect of more domestically produced nitrogen in 2015,” Miller said. “We have been importing more than 50 percent of our nitrogen fertilizer, meaning supply disruptions could easily impact prices. As we produce more of our own, we will import less. The bigger supply will benefit corn producers.” Recent prices for nitrogen in anhydrous ammonia form have hovered around $700 per ton. According to Miller, that could possibly eventually fall to as low as $400 or $500 per ton if U.S. production capacity increases considerably. One area where farmers won’t see price relief is seed costs. By Miller’s estimates, some seed could be up by 2-3 percent or more for the 2014 planting season. “Seed is not the place where growers will cut corners to try to save money,” he said. “They will be careful in pricing inputs, but they want the technology to produce the best crop possible.” The prices of chemicals, such as herbicides, pesticides and fungicides, are likely to be a mixed bag. For the most part, chemical prices will be up slightly — about 1 percent, according to Miller. The exception is herbicide, where prices will remain flat. Prices for fuels commonly used on the farm currently are expected to be down in 2014. The costs for both diesel, which powers most farm machinery, and propane, which farmers use to power grain dryers, could be down by about 4 percent. Fuel prices, however, can be among the most volatile costs farmers encounter each year because much of it is imported. While an increase in domestic energy production has helped thwart major supply disruptions, Miller said tensions abroad could affect what farmers pay for fuel in the U.S. Farmers who have wanted to purchase new tractors, combines, implements or other machinery have encountered increasing prices. Machinery prices increased by an average of 7.4 percent per year from 2002 to 2012 because recordhigh farm incomes increased demand. The sustained increases in machinery prices could quickly come to a halt, especially for used farm equipment, if commodity prices decline and stay down for an extended period of time, Miller said. As producers make their decisions about inputs for the 2014 crop year, Miller said the bottom line is that they should keep an eye on the economics of each decision. For fertilizer, that means waiting to see if prices continue to decline.

Grain-safety seminar planned WEST LAFAYETTE — Young people on family-operated grain farms and beginning workers in the commercial grain industry can learn how to stay safe in their work by attending daylong training offered by Purdue University. “Safe Grain Storage and Handling for Youth and Beginning Workers” will be offered Sept. 30 at Brock Manufacturing, Milford, Ind.; Oct. 2 at Beck Educational Center, West Lafayette, Ind.; and Oct. 16 at FFA Leadership Center, Trafalgar, Ind. Training will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. Steve Wettschurack, a Purdue farm rescue instructor, said the goal is to provide basic awareness safety and health training needed by young people interested in pursuing employment in the commercial grain industry or who are already employed on family-operated farms with grain storage operations. He said about one in every five

victims of serious accidents at grain storage and handling facilities are people under the age of 21. “The primary cause of these tragic events has been the lack of awareness of basic hazards associated with storage and handling of grain and failure to comply with safe grain-handling practices,” Wettschurack said. Participants will learn the importance of the grain industry and career opportunities. Topics to be discussed include primary hazards associated with grain storage and handling, common ways workers become entrapped in flowing grain, basic safety practices, types of personal protective equipment, rights of workers under the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and steps to take in the event of an emergency. Sponsors of the training are Purdue’s Agricultural Safety and Health Program,

U.S. Department of Labor/ OSHA Susan Hardwood Grant, Indiana Rural Safety and Health Council, Brock Manufacturing and Farm Bureau Insurance. There is no cost to attend, but advance registration is required. Basic personal protective equipment and lunch will be provided. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance and samples of personal protective equipment commonly used in the grain industry. Farm youth working on family-operated grain farms, high school and community college students interested in a career or summer employment in agriculture or the grain industry, FFA members, and young and beginning workers in the commercial grain industry are encouraged to attend. To register or for more information, contact Steve Wettschurack at 765-7144557 or swettsch@purdue. edu.

Syria sends first information on chemical arsenal

Man charged with DUI on riding mower MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man has been charged with driving drunk while carrying an open can of beer — on a riding lawn mower. Murrysville police say they found 55-year-old Thomas Marrone driving the mower along a road just before 1:30 a.m. Aug. 30. Police say Marrone smelled of alcohol and had an open can of Coors Light beer in the mower’s storage compartment. They say he told them he was driving to his Murrysville home — some 6.4 miles away.

Grenades kill three at Pakistan mosque PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani police say assailants hurled hand grenades into a Sufi mosque in the country’s northwest in a late night attack that left three people dead. Police official Misri Khan says the attack late Thursday in Achini Bala village near the Khyber tribal region also wounded 20 people. Khan said on Friday that three of the wounded were in critical condition. Dozens of worshippers were participating in a religious gathering when the attack took place. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but suspicion will likely fall on the Pakistani Taliban and their allies. Hard-line Sunni extremists consider Sufis to be heretics.

Russians towing Greenpeace ship MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian Coast Guard is towing a Greenpeace ship toward the nearest port after armed officers stormed it following a protest against oil drilling in Arctic waters. The agency said Friday that the ship’s captain refused to operate the Arctic Sunrise, so a Coast Guard ship has arrived at the scene to tow the ship to the port of Murmansk. The trip is expected to take three to four days. Russian officials said that Greenpeace activists could face terrorism or piracy charges. One of the activists aboard the vessel, Faiza Oulahsen, told the AP late on Thursday that about 15 armed men had boarded the Arctic Sunrise, aggressively herding 29 activists into one compartment. The vessel’s captain was held separately on the bridge. “They used violence against some of us, they were hitting people, kicking people,” she said.

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, leaders from several countries and congressional members will join Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Alicia Bono Keys and John Mayer at the free concert Sept. 28 in New York’s Central Park. The concert coincides with the U.N. General Assembly. Fans earn free tickets for helping spread the word or volunteering to help end world poverty. Bono will present Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf with a Global Citizen Movement Award for her work on women’s equality. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak and U.S. Congress members Earl Blumenauer, Charlie Dent and Kay Granger also are expected to attend.



Chicago Police detectives investigate the scene where a number of people,

Assault weapon leaves 13 wounded in Chicago CHICAGO (AP) — Those behind a late-night attack at a southwest Chicago park in which 13 people were wounded, including a 3-year-old, used an assault-style weapon to spray the crowd with bullets, making it “a miracle” no one was killed, the city’s police superintendent said Friday. Ballistics evidence shows that those behind Thursday night’s attack used a 7.62 mm rifle fed by a high-capacity magazine, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy told reporters. That type of weapon, he said, belongs on a “battlefield, not on the street or a corner or a park in the Back of the Yards,” the neighborhood where the shooting took place. “It’s a miracle in this instance that there have been no fatalities based upon the lethality of the weapon used at the scene,” McCarthy

said, calling on lawmakers to restrict the sale of such weapons and choke off the flow of illegal guns into the city. The attack happened shortly after 10 p.m. while the Cornell Square Park was still crowded with people watching a basketball game and enjoying a warm late summer night. Investigators believe several people took part in the attack but weren’t sure yet how many fired shots. McCarthy said that based on witness interviews, it appears the attack was gang-related and that several victims are gang members. “Even if it’s gang-related, even if we have the most hardened criminals who becomes the victim of gun violence, that individual is the father, brother, sister sometimes parent of somebody else,” McCarthy said. “So murder is not a one-victim crime.”

Among those shot was a 3-year-old boy, Deonta Howard, and two teenagers, a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old. Deonta was alert when he arrived at the hospital and was apparently doing well, his family and friends said early Friday. He was in critical condition, as were two other shooting victims. The others were reportedly in serious or fair condition. Deonta’s uncle, Julian Harris, told the Chicago Sun-Times that dreadlocked men in a gray sedan shot at him Thursday night before turning toward the nearby park and opening fire. He said his nephew was shot in the cheek. “They hit the light pole next to me, but I ducked down and ran into the house,” Harris said. “They’ve been coming round here looking for people to shoot every night, just gang-banging stuff. It’s what they do.”

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Syria has sent the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons an “initial declaration” outlining its weapons program, the organization said Friday. Spokesman Michael Luhan told The Associated Press the declaration is “being reviewed by our verification division.” The organization will not release details of what is in the declaration. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said the United States and other nations that have joined the chemical weapons organization “will be making a careful and thorough review of the initial document.” The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, based in The Hague, polices a global treaty known as the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993, which bars the development, production, stockpiling and use of chemical arms. The organization relies on a global network of more than a dozen top laboratories to analyze field samples. U.S. officials said last week that the United States and Russia agreed that Syria had roughly 1,000 metric tons of chemical weapons agents and precursors, including blister agents, such as sulfur and mustard gas and nerve agents like sarin. In the aftermath of the U.N. report that concluded sarin had been used in an attack in Damascus last month, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which polices the

treaty outlawing chemical weapons, is looking at ways to fast-track moves to secure and destroy Syria’s arsenal of poison gas and nerve agents as well as its production facilities. However, diplomatic efforts to speed up the process are moving slowly. A meeting initially scheduled for Sunday at which the organization’s 41-nation executive council was to have discussed a U.S.-Russian plan to swiftly rid Syria of chemical weapons was postponed Friday, and no new date was immediately set. No reason was given for the postponement. Harf said she did not know why the meeting was postponed, but said Syria’s initial declaration was a step Washington was seeking “and we’ll go from there.” Under a U.S.-Russia agreement brokered last weekend in Geneva, inspectors are to be on the ground in Syria by November. During that month, they are to complete their initial assessment and all mixing and filling equipment for chemical weapons is to be destroyed. All components of the chemical weapons program are to be removed from the country or destroyed by mid-2014. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons plan of action will be backed up by a U.N. Security Council resolution, and negotiations remain underway on the text of such a resolution. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he talked to his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, about Syria’s chemical weapons early Friday.

Coloradans return home to find heartbreak BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Coloradans who ventured back into the flood-ravaged town of Lyons found scenes of stomach-churning destruction, with dozens of homes destroyed, family keepsakes missing, food spoiling and mud everywhere. “It’s just sickening,” said Gloria Simpson, whose family salvaged some of her grandmother’s handmade quilts Thursday from her 81-year-old father’s home. They found some family photos, but others were nowhere to be found. The number of dead rose to seven, with three others missing and presumed dead. But the number of unaccounted-for people dropped to about 80, thanks to rescues, restored communications and door-to-door searches. Rescue operations tapered off and the state began to turn its attention to finding homes for the displaced, restoring basic services and figuring out how to repair hundreds of miles of roads and dozens of bridges. “Right now we’re just moving from the life-saving mode to the life-sustaining mode,” said Kevin Kline, director of the Colorado Division of Homeland

Security and Emergency Management. Kline said it was too early to estimate the dollar damage but added, “It’s going to be big.” The damage spans 17 counties and nearly 2,000 square miles. Gov. John Hickenlooper said the state’s reconstruction effort would be overseen by Jerre Stead, executive chairman of the global information company IHS Inc. With dustings of snow already on the highest mountains, a new group within the state Transportation Department will focus on repairing and reconstructing as much of the state highway system as possible by Dec. 1. Under tight security, hundreds of Lyons evacuees were given two hours to check on their homes Thursday. On Sept. 12, the St. Vrain River destroyed dozens of homes, a trailer park, two bridges and sections of roads in the picturesque town of 1,600. Darren Horwitz saw boulders, broken glass and dislodged propane tanks strewn around Lyons. His truck and sailboat that he parked at a friend’s mobile home had been swept away.

Franken raises iPhone concerns NEW YORK (AP) — Sen. Al Franken is asking Apple for more clarity on privacy and security concerns he has with its use of fingerprint recognition technology in the new iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5S, which went on sale Friday, includes a fingerprint sensor that lets users tap the phone’s home button to unlock their phone, rather than enter a four-digit passcode. But Franken said that the fingerprint system could be potentially

disastrous for users if someone does eventually hack it. While a password can be kept a secret and changed if it’s hacked, he said, fingerprints are permanent and are left on everything a person touches, making them far from a secret. “Let me put it this way: if hackers get a hold of your thumbprint, they could use it to identify and impersonate you for the rest of your life,” the Minnesota Democrat said in a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

“When you get there, the shock sets in,” he said. Bob Ruthrauff, 84, found his home intact, but food was rotting in his refrigerator because electricity had been cut off. He spent his two hours getting rid of the spoilage but was grateful. “We’re very lucky. We came home to a dry home,” Ruthrauff said.

flood-damaged belongings in LaSalle, Colo., Friday.

Utility poles were toppled and power lines were in tangles. Work crews cleared debris and tried to restore power, water and sewer service. E. coli has been found in the town’s drinking water and it could be two to six months before the town is livable for most, the Longmont Times-Call

reported. However, residents willing to rough it will be allowed to stay. Millions of gallons of sewage have been released around the state because of septic systems and sewer lines torn out by flood waters and flooded waste treatment plants, said Steve Gunderson, director of the state’s water quality control division.

Husband wearing on wife’s patience DEAR ABBY: I am fortunate to be a stay-athome mom. My days are spent doing chores and taking care of the kids. I also volunteer extensively at their schools, but I do find time for other pursuits, such as reading and writing. My problem is my husband. “Bob” is the kind of guy who can’t sit still. When he’s home on weekends or taking a day off, he constantly needs to be doing something. This involves projects around the house. Other than spending time online, his hobbies are active ones. Because he’s always on the go, he insists I should be equally “productive.” He constantly wants to know what I’m doing, and if it’s not something he thinks is useful, he becomes passive-aggressive. Bob initiates big projects and then complains that




must live my life according to his unrealistic expectations. Any advice other than to seek counseling? — NOT A LOAFER IN CHICAGO DEAR NOT A LOAFER: Nope. It appears that your great guy, good dad and best friend is so controlling he makes you miserable when he’s home. I agree that if this continues, it will have a negative effect on your marriage. The person who should explain it to him is a licensed mental health professional who can provide the counseling and/ or medication he may need, because I suspect he may have OCD. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Cycling requires rider have good traffic sense most of the way, so during rush hours it takes no longer than driving. Except on a rainy day, the advantages are obvious.” During blizzards, he takes the car. “I’m not a complete nut about cycling,” he assured me. Now and then, cyclists injure a ASK muscle. But DOCTOR K. the main risks of cycling are from Dr. Anthony not the physical but Komaroff activity from traffic. The vast majority of the fatalities from bicycle-related injuries are caused by accidents involving motor vehicles. Drivers will often say after an

accident that they never saw the cyclist. Reckless cycling can be a factor, too. Being on two wheels doesn’t mean that traffic laws don’t apply to you. Running red lights and weaving in and out of traffic is courting disaster. And it’s surprisingly common, at least in Boston. I sometimes wonder if part of what makes some cyclists enthusiastic about cycling is the sense that they are courting danger. And of course, wear a helmet. The worst injuries to cyclists are head injuries. A patient of mine couldn’t find his helmet, was in a rush and went cycling without it. He hit a pothole and sustained a severe concussion. He fully recovered, but it took six weeks. Be especially wary about cars parked along the side of the street: Running into a car door that has opened

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’d like to start biking to work. Any advice before I get back on my bike? DEAR READER: Cycling is great exercise. For one thing, it gets you breathing harder and your heart rate up. That pays cardiovascular dividends. Cycling stacks up well against other forms of exercise when it comes to burning calories, too. And it isn’t as hard on the knees as running. Perhaps the biggest advantage of cycling is that it can perform double duty as a form of transportation. A number of my patients, and my colleagues here at Harvard Medical School, bicycle to and from work every day. One of my colleagues once said: “I don’t need to go to the gym, and I don’t need to pay the gym or pay for parking. I have bike paths

he gets no help and has no time for himself. He says my volunteerism takes away from time I should be doing things around the house. In addition, Bob is incredibly neat and often insists that our DEAR immacuhouse ABBY late needs to be cleaned. I dread Jeanne Phillips the days he’s home because I have to constantly justify my activities or feel guilty if I’m not busy the entire time. Don’t misunderstand — Bob is a great guy, a good dad and my best friend. But I’m afraid I will soon resent him to the point of dislike if I

suddenly is a common way to get hurt. Sure, drivers should be looking in their side-view mirrors before opening the door, but they often don’t. Bad technique or positioning, or a bike that’s the wrong size, can make cycling uncomfortable to the point of pain and may eventually result in injuries. High-end bike stores offer fitting services for a fee. It will be money well spent if you’re cycling a lot. If any problems come up — knee, lower back or buttock pain, or numb hands and wrists are among the more common — a bike store should be able to make adjustments to your bike or help you tweak your technique.
