Iranian president, Obama pledge to seek nuclear accord WASHINGTON (AP) — Breaking a third-of-a-century diplomatic freeze, President Barack Obama and new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke by telephone on Friday and, in a historic shift from years of unwavering animosity, agreed to work toward resolving their deep dispute over Tehran’s nuclear efforts. Rouhani, who earlier in the day called the United States a “great” nation, reached out to arrange the call. The White House said an encouraging meeting between Secretary of State John Kerry

and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif this week was a crucial factor in the thaw. “While there will surely be important obstacles to moving forward, and success is by no means guaranteed, I believe we can reach a comprehensive solution,” Obama told reporters at the White House. Rouhani, at a news conference in New York, linked the U.S. and Iran as “great nations,” a remarkable reversal from the anti-American rhetoric of his predecessors, and he expressed hope that at the SEE IRAN, PAGE A5

Avilla town budget faces vote in October BY MATT GETTS

AVILLA — The formal adoption of a 2014 budget will be voted on at the next Avilla Town Council meeting. The town fathers normally meet the third Wednesday of every month, but town manager Bill Ley said October’s meeting may have to be moved to another date because of a scheduling conflict with one of the councilmen. Clerk-Treasurer Rita Grocock said next year’s budget has been set

approximately 4 percent higher than this year’s budget. That doesn’t mean the town will get all it is asking for, she said. The Indiana Department of Local Government Finance must approve the budget, and the process normally involves some trimming. “We know we’ll have to be cut,” Ley said. The council then will meet to discuss how to make the cuts. “You’re never pleased with the budget,” Grocock said. “You have to survive on what you can get.” As proposed, the 2014 budget

calls for a 4 percent wage increase for the town’s employees. Town officials don’t know if the state review will allow for that much of an increase or not. At its Sept. 18 meeting, the council hired accounting firm H.J. Umbaugh and Associates to perform a sewer rate study. The town has not had a sewer rate increase since 2005, Ley said. The town’s sewer fund is diminishing, said council president Paul Shepherd. “We’re seeing our balance isn’t

what it should be,” he said. “Even for normal maintenance, we don’t have enough in there.” Also at its Sept. 18 meeting, the town approved a property tax abatement for McLaughlin Services LLC, 333 Progress Way. The company manufactures and repairs heat-treating equipment. The company began operations approximately one year ago with four employees. The firm currently employs 12, and hopes new equipment it is installing will add another five jobs.

KENDALLVILLE — The 10th annual Brad Miller Gala, Auction and Golf Outing raised more than $280,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters and its programs. Brad Miller, an NBA star and former Little Brother, hosted the two-part event. It began Sept. 7 with a gala and auction at the Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, followed by a golf outing Sept. 9 at Noble Hawk Golf Links in Kendallville. More than 800 people came together for the events to support Big Brothers Big Sisters. The auction included approximately 250 items. Among the major items auctioned were a painting from David Garibaldi, a hunting trip with Brad Miller, an Indiana Pacers executive suite package and a Las Vegas trip. The golf outing involved 23 teams in the morning and 36 teams in the afternoon. A team from Noble County Disposal in Albion had the best score of the day. In 1985 at age 8, Miller was matched with his Big Brother, Dewey, in Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mentoring program. Although their official match in the program ended when Miller turned 18 years old, their relationship remained strong as Miller’s basketball career advanced him from Purdue University to the NBA to a television career. The agency said it thanks this year’s presenting sponsor, Steel Dynamics Inc., for its continued support and dedication to children in our communities. It also thanked the 2013 event sponsors, Accutemp, Aggregate Systems,

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana is a nonprofit organization that serves children in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells and Whitley counties in Indiana and Branch, Hillsdale and St. Joseph counties in Michigan. Its mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with measureable impact. Potential mentors can learn how to positively impact a child’s life, donate or volunteer at BBBSNEI. org. Partnering with parents and guardians, schools, corporations and others in

the community, Big Brothers Big Sisters carefully pairs children (“Littles”) with screened volunteer mentors (“Bigs”) and monitors and supports them in one-to-one mentoring matches throughout their course.

Report: Global warming worst ever BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Manmade global warming is rapidly transforming the planet at rates that are unprecedented in human history, from melting Arctic sea ice to heating the land and seas and contributing to extreme weather events, concluded a new landmark climate report from the United Nations on Friday. The study, the fifth major assessment from the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), projects a bleak future of rising sea levels, more intense and frequent heat waves, destructive droughts and floods, as well as more acidic oceans that will be less capable of supporting marine life. The report serves as yet another warning that without dramatic and rapid cuts in emissions of global greenhouse gas emissions, primarily emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the consequences of climate change could be disastrous in many parts of the world. “Climate change challenges the two primary resources of humans and ecosystems — land and water. In short, it threatens our planet, our only home,” said Thomas Stocker, a climate scientist at the University of Bern in Switzerland and co-lead author of the IPCC’s Working Group

I, which released its report on Friday at a press conference in Stockholm. The report found that each of the past three decades has been warmer than all preceding decades since 1850, and the period from 1983-2012 was “likely” the warmest 30-year period of the past 1,400 years in the Northern Hemisphere. The study projects that global surface temperatures are likely to exceed

2.7°F above preindustrial levels by the end of the century and will likely range from 0.54°F to 8.64°F above 1986-2005 levels, depending on greenhouse gas emissions. At the U.N. climate summit in Copenhagen in 2009, global leaders committed to containing global warming to under 3.6°F above pre-industrial levels. The new report illustrates that goal is now

unfeasible. Friday’s study said that to stay below 3.6°F, global carbon emissions would have to remain below 1 trillion metric tons. According to Stocker, 54 percent of that carbon budget has already been emitted. If global warming continues unabated, the consequences are grave, from rising sea levels to extensive melting of the polar ice sheets.

a government of more than 2.1 million civilian employees scrambled on Friday to update its plans determining who would stay and who would go home, what would get done and what would have to wait. The equation was complicated by the complexity of federal budget rules; some pots of money would be caught up in a shutdown and some wouldn’t. Ironically, a shutdown would have virtually no impact on President Barack Obama’s health care law — the program at the heart of his showdown with House Republicans. The program that detractors dubbed “Obamacare” is set to roll out its individual insurance plans on Tuesday, government shutdown or no, and people hoping to sign up on that first day shouldn’t be affected. Other work expected to continue no matter how the political fight goes: • Prison guards, federal law officers and Border Patrol agents will be at their posts. • Air traffic controllers and airport security screeners will keep airports open. • The military’s 1.4 million active-duty personnel will stay on duty. • Social Security payments will still go out. Doctors will see Medicare and Medicaid patients. Food stamp dollars should continue to flow.

Farmers in court over listeria deaths

WASHINGTON (AP) — If the government “shuts down” next Tuesday, your mail will still come. Doctors will see Medicare patients. NASA will keep talking to the astronauts circling Earth on the Space Station. In fact, the majority of government will remain on the job. The bad news would hit random Americans first: vacationers hoping to take in Mount Rushmore or a Smithsonian museum. Homebuyers seeking government-backed mortgages. Travelers who want new passports, quickly. Perhaps on the bright side — for some — tax audits would probably be suspended. Troubles would spread the longer a shutdown lasted. A prolonged furlough of more than one-third of civilian federal workers could mean delays in processing applications for new Social Security and Medicare benefits. Lost profits for businesses that sell goods or services to the government. Problems for airlines and some hotels and restaurants that rely on tourism near national parks. Longer waits for kids seeking delinquent child support. And, of course, a shutdown would mean no paychecks for an estimated 800,000 furloughed workers. They might get paid later for the missed days but couldn’t count on that. The deadline nearing,

required hospitalization. The criminal prosecution “sends the message that absolute care must be taken to ensure that deadly pathogens do not enter our food supply chain,” the FDA said in a statement Friday. Criminal charges are rare in food-borne illnesses, but the FDA under President Barack Obama has been more aggressive in pursuing farmers and food processors for alleged lapses, said Michael Doyle, director of University of Georgia’s Center for Food Safety. “I think the FDA is sending a strong message that the produce industry is going to have to raise the bar to ensure the safety of the, basically, ready-to-consume foods,” he said.

DENVER (AP) — Criminal charges against two cantaloupe farmers over a deadly food-borne illness send an emphatic message to fruit and vegetable growers to crack down on safety, federal regulators said Friday. Colorado farmers Eric and Ryan Jensen appeared in shackles in a Denver federal court this week and pleaded not guilty to charges of introducing adulterated food into interstate commerce. The federal Food and Drug Administration has said conditions at Jensen Farms in southeast Colorado led to a 2011 listeria outbreak that killed 33 people. Officials said people in 28 states ate the contaminated fruit, and 147

through Nov. 15. The immediate impacts of a shutdown would be felt unevenly. Soldiers, air traffic controllers and many other federal workers would remain on the job. Social Security payments would still go out. But national parks would close to visitors. There would be problems for homebuyers seeking government-backed mortgages and for people applying for some other programs. Delays and closings would spread if a shutdown last for long. Friday’s Senate vote masked a ferocious struggle for control of the Republican Party pitting Boehner and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell against rebels

IRAN: Leaders of two countries speak for first time since 1979 FROM PAGE A1

very least the two governments can stop the escalation of tensions. Rouhani has repeatedly stressed that he has “full authority” in his outreach to the U.S., a reference to the apparent backing by Iran’s ultimate decisionmaker: Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Such support would give Rouhani a political mandate that could extend beyond the nuclear issue to possible broader efforts at ending the long estrangement between Washington and Tehran. It remains unclear, however, whether obstacles will be raised by Iran’s hard-line forces such the powerful Revolutionary Guard, which had warned Rouhani about moving too fast with his overtures with the West. Friday’s telephone call — Obama at the White House, Rouhani in a limousine on the way to the airport after diplomatic meetings at the United Nations — marked perhaps the most hopeful steps toward reconciliation in decades. The last direct conversation between the leaders of the two countries was in 1979 before the Iranian Revolution toppled the pro-U.S. shah and brought Islamic militants to power. Obama said the long break “underscores the deep mistrust between our countries, but it also indicates the prospect of moving beyond that difficult history.” At issue most directly at present are suspicions outlined in reports from the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency that Iran has worked secretly on trying to develop nuclear weapons.

led by relatively junior lawmakers, Cruz and Mike Lee of Utah and a few dozen allies in the House among them. The outcome of that contest — more than differences between the two political parties — is likely to determine whether the government shuts down for the first time in nearly two decades. Cruz told reporters he had had numerous conversations with fellow conservatives in recent days, adding, “I am confident the House of Representatives will continue to stand its ground, continue to listen to the American people and … stop this train wreck, this nightmare that is Obamacare.”

The House is scheduled to be in session both Saturday and Sunday, but it is unclear when it will vote on a new bill to avert a shutdown, and what health care-related items it will include. Obama spoke more than an hour later at the White House, where he said it was up to House Republicans to follow the Senate’s lead and prevent a shutdown. He said the struggle has nothing to do with budget deficits, and said if Republicans “have specific ideas on how to genuinely improve the (health care) law rather than gut it, rather than delay, it rather than repeal it, I am happy to work with them.”

training program were used in the northeastern Indiana district in unison: a PowerPoint presentation, a live, active-shooter scenario and a debriefing where staff members could ask questions afterward. Mawhorr discussed with the staff how law enforcement’s approach has changed since the Columbine school shooting in Colorado. Prior to that time, officers set up a perimeter and waited for a SWAT team to arrive. Columbine taught police that there was no time to wait for a SWAT team to assemble. It was then thought that a small team of perhaps three or four officers would enter the building first. Now, police are taught that the first officer on the scene is to deal with the situation immediately. Mawhorr said there also has been an evolution in thinking regarding what potential victims should do. Instead of being instructed to wait for help to arrive, staff members were taught Friday a more proactive approach: They should run to safety if they can, hide if they can’t and be prepared to fight if they must. “It sucks we even have to have this conversation,” Mawhorr told the assembled teachers and administrators, “but this is the world we live in now.” Mawhorr said each teacher should have items that potentially could be used as weapons. He gave the example of ISP District commander Lt. Tony Casto’s

Knights surprised on road BY JUSTIN PENLAND

OSSIAN — Quite often coaches teach not only athletic and game-related techniques, but also real-life lessons for different situations. East Noble’s football team learned a lesson no one wants to get taught Friday at Norwell. East Noble lost in the battle of the Knights, 35-7. “The only thing you can take away (from the loss) is in the real world, if you don’t bring it every day, someone else will,” East Noble coach Luke Amstutz said. “We got our butts kicked tonight. We didn’t come ready to play.” Norwell tallied an uncommon

457 yards against East Noble’s defense (4-2, 2-2 NHC), 327 of which were on the ground. Of the 52 offensive plays Norwell (1-5, 1-3) ran, three gained 50 or more yards. Things were slow early for both teams as the defenses battled to three consecutive three-and-out series. East Noble picked up one first down on the fourth drive of the game, but it was Norwell on the ensuing drive that drained the clock and put together a long march down the field. The home squad started on its own 20 due to a touchback on the previous punt. Norwell marched 60 yards in the closing minutes of the first quarter before scoring on

the first play of the second stanza, a 20-yard connection between quarterback Piercen Harnish and receiver Reggie Hayes. Harnish and Hayes connected only four times in the contest, but accounted for 110 of Harnish’s 130 passing yards. Hayes also scored on a 62-yard catch with 1:51 left in the first half. It was his final catch of the evening. “Obviously we didn’t prepare them to come over and get ready for a battle. I have to take a good look in the mirror for this week and get ready for Columbia City. Our boys also have to take a look in the mirror and be prepared for a fight,” Amstutz said.

Panthers win on Homecoming BY KEN FILLMORE

End of a streak BY CHRIS SMURR

ALBION — It was a homecoming to remember for the Central Noble Cougars as they defeated The Howe School Wildcats 48-12 in a non-conference football game Friday night. Central Noble won for the first time in a little more than three years and ended a losing streak at 30 games. Its last win before Friday was a 14-7 home win over Fremont on Sept. 17, 2010. The scoring onslaught happened early and often for the Cougars as junior quarterback Brock Noe scored the game’s first touchdown of the night on an option play,

culminating in 37-yarder on the ground. The Wildcats, however, could not counter the Cougars’ offensive attack. The Cougars were plagued early on by two offensive penalties that negated would-be touchdowns. “There are still some little things that we have to do better,” CN head coach Jeremy Yates said. “Tonight is about the guys enjoying the win and putting a win up on that board.” The Cougars would reclaim those two negated scores later on. First, it was a 34-yard passing touchdown as Noe connected with senior wide receiver Joel Cochard


LAGRANGE — Three Lakeland running backs ran for more than 100 yards and another had nearly 90 yards, but the Lakers needed a big defensive stop midway through the fourth quarter to turn aside upset-minded Eastside, 28-14 at LaGrange


in the first quarter to put them up 13-0. On the Cougars’ following possession, senior running back Garren Deck took the handoff and bolted toward the end zone with what would have been a 65-yard touchdown run. However, an offensive penalty by the Cougars erased that score. Undeterred, the Central Noble offense drove the ball downfield and junior running back Alexander Collins reclaimed the score for his team’s mishap with a 25-yard scoring run to put his team up 20-0.

Friday. The Lakers improved to 6-0 overall and in Northeast Corner Conference play. The Blazers fell to 1-5 overall and 0-5 in NECC play. Lakeland rolled up 486 yards of offense, all but 10 of it on the ground. Sophomore fullback Josh




Collyer carried 18 times for 133 yards and one score. Senior slotback Taylor Raatz gained 119 yards on 11 attempts for three touchdowns. Senior fullback Thomas Roebel added 107 yards on 16 carries. For good measure, senior slotback Kyle Casper added 85 yards.

The Panthers jumped out to a 22-0 lead midway through the third quarter and held off the Eagles 29-21 in an emotionally Northeast Corner Conference game at Hubert Cline Field. “We had four starters out, so we had to push hard to develop talent and find pride. There was a lot of bait tossed out there and it was thrown on both sides,” Prairie Heights coach Vincent Royer said. “We dug deep and reached deep to play through everything.” Fremont (2-4, 1-4 NECC) had another big penalty night with 13 calls against them for 126 yards.

West Noble falls at Churubusco CHURUBUSCO — West Noble discovered why Churubusco is state-ranked and undefeated as the Eagles pinned a 49-0 loss on the Chargers in a Northeast Corner Conference football game played Friday night in ‘Busco.

West Noble, 1-5, was unable to mount much of an offense as the ‘Busco defense kept West Noble out of the end zone for the entire 48 minutes. Churubusco, 6-0, scored just once in the first quarter but then recorded two touchdowns in each

of the second, third and fourth quarters. Adrian Springer scored first for ‘Busco on a seven-yard run. Kane Johnson then scored three touchdowns for the winners; two in the second and one in the third quarters. His first two runs

were good for 28 yards each and the final six-pointer was a 53-yard run. Quarterback Hayden Kilgore then followed up with two touchdown passes. The final TD for Churubusco came on a 19-yard interception return.

The loss moves Churubusco one game closer to a showdown with Lakeland in two weeks for the conference championship. The Chargers will be looking forward to being at home Friday in their homecoming game against Central Noble.

LAKERS: Fairfield up next for Lakeland squad COUGARS: Central Noble will face Eastside FROM PAGE B1


Despite Lakeland owning more than a 200-yard advantage in total offense, the score was tied at 14 heading into the fourth quarter. That’s when the Lakers found a little something extra. Lakeland ground out three first downs in the final three minutes of the third, and gained another early in the fourth before Raatz scored from eight yards out with 9:26 to play. Marco Olivares’ extra-point kick made it 21-14 Lakers. The Blazers, who showed second-half explosiveness on offense after gaining just two first downs in the first half, immediately threatened. Freshman quarterback Conner Dove threw a deep ball to senior Ty Lockhart for 32 yards to the Lakeland 26. Junior P.J. Dean completed a short pass to Jesse Eck for another first down, this time to the Lakeland 11. Two plays later, however, Dean’s pass was tipped at the line of scrimmage, and Lakeland’s Casper made a diving interception at his 5-yard line to snuff the drive. The Lakers went 95 yards in just under four minutes, with Raatz scoring from 26 yards out with 1:33 to play. Raatz also scored the game’s first points with 1:51 left in the first, capping an 11-play, 72-yard drive with a six-yard run. That was all the scoring through the first half.

Eastside’s Terry Nickolson recovered a fumble to end one Lakeland possession, and Olivares missed a 34-yard field goal to the right late in the half. Eastside nearly scored late in the half, as Dean hit a streaking Lockhart for 46 yards to the Lakeland 36, and ran 32 yards himself as the halftime horn sounded, only to be tripped up at the 4. After Lakeland came up empty on another field goal try on its first possession of the third, Eastside did find the end zone, as Dean faked a pass and tucked the ball away untouched for a 49-yard run with 5:49 left in the third. Lakeland needed exactly one minute to respond, as

big runs by Casper and Collyer preceded the latter’s four-yard TD run at 4:45. Eastside answered back in 1:21. Kadis Renier ripped off a 36-yard run to across midfield, and Dean ended the short possession with a 35-yard TD run. Trever Jokoty’s kick made it 14-14 with 3:18 left in the third. Dean finished with 132 yards rushing on 12 attempts. The Lakers, who didn’t punt the entire game, wore special military-themed jerseys as part of a night honoring veterans. Lakeland visits Fairfield, a 53-14 winner over Angola, in a battle of NECC unbeatens Friday. The Blazers host Fremont Friday.

The Wildcats would find the end zone in the second quarter as senior quarterback Marco Seow connected with senior tight end Collin Majoras for a 19-yard pass. But Central Noble answered on the following possession as Deck scored from 50 yards out to make it a 27-6 game. The Cougars would find the end zone two more times before halftime. Noe had a 68-yard quarterback scamper, and Collins scored from 33 yards out. The second half found the Cougars opting to play more conservative,

giving younger players an opportunity to play. “Whenever you can get the J.V. guys out there on the field and give them varsity experience, it’s always good for them,” Yates said. Freshman running back Mason Smith would be the only Cougar to score in the second half with a 33-yard run in the third quarter. The Wildcats never gave up during the game, playing hard until the very end despite having to overcome a large scoring deficit. In the fourth quarter, the Cougars failed to convert on fourth down and turned

That included some personal foul calls. But the Panthers (3-3, 3-2) were not immuned to penalties either and they piled up as PH hung onto a second half lead. It had 12 penalties for 115 yards. Among Heights’ starters out were key two-way senior captain Joey Barry and sophomore defensive back Kade Gerbers. Barry is out for the season with a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee and will try to get back for baseball in the spring. The Panthers did not get healthier in this physical battle among neighborly rivals. Senior Bobby Blum injured his right ankle late in the second quarter after leaping to attempt to catch a screen pass from Kyler West. The ankle was iced and taped up and Blum returned in the third quarter. He scored his third touchdown of the game with 5 minutes, 17 seconds left in the quarter as the Panthers took advantage of a short field following Dylan Stayner blocking a Fremont punt deep in Eagle territory. Corey Johnson kicked the extra point to make it a 29-14 game. Midway through the fourth quarter, Blum took further punishment with an excessive tackle as he was body slammed to the turf by Fremont’s Logan Peel. Stayner dinged up a shoulder. But Heights made

two final stands to secure the win after Johnson did not miss a 52-yard field goal by all that much. Kaleb Hayes was 19-for-40 passing for 221 yards and two touchdowns. Panther senior Levi Tuckerman picked Hayes off three times, including twice in the final five minutes. “Tuckerman was one example of a guy who learned to not drop his head after making a mistake. He learned to play up,” Royer said. “Dylan and Bobby showed a lot of heart,” the


Norwell’s lead did not last long, however. East Noble answered with its own 80-yard drive following the kickoff. It took 11 plays and exactly three minutes until Walker Boyles crashed into the end

zone from 8 yards out and Jared Teders’ kick knotted it at 7-7. Boyles was one of the bright spots for East Noble with 107 rushing yards. Late in the third quarter, Boyles tried to revamp the East Noble sideline with

a 58-yard counter which pulled the Knights from their own 28 to Norwell’s 14. The drive stalled five plays later after a holding penalty pushed East Noble back from the 6-yard line. Norwell scored 28 unanswered points in the final 32:05. “We have to learn from it and be a lot more vigilant in how we prepare. We need to have a lot better week,” Amstutz said. East Noble will look to bounce back next Friday at Columbia City. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

coach added. “Joey Barry set the standard for work and will still stay in the team captain locker for the rest of the season.” Blum had 73 yards on 21 carries. David Rodriguez had 42 yards on seven carries and sustained Panther drives in the second half in picking up the slack for Blum. Tuckerman caught a 47-yard touchdown pass from West in the second quarter. West kept the play alive with his feet, and Tuckerman broke a tackle before running down the PH sideline to paydirt. West then ran for two points. Nate Beatty caught seven passes for 114 yards for Fremont, including a 46-yard touchdown reception in the final minute of the second quarter to make it a 22-14 game. He also rushed for 58 yards on 20 carries. Eagle Brock Baker scored two touchdowns, one on a seven-yard pass in the first quarter and another on an 11-yard fumble return in the fourth quarter when he took the ball away from Stayner. Fremont trailed 14-0 after one quarter without seniors Brad Owen and Ryan Sichling due to a violation of team rules. Sichling played well over the final three quarters, according to FHS coach Nick Maksimchuk, and caught a few passes. “We lost our cool and we need to control attitude and effort,” Maksimchuk said. “Those personal fouls have to stop.”

From there, Howe’s junior running back Simon Williams had a 30-yard touchdown run for the final score of the night. “You have to give Howe a lot of credit,” said Yates. “They play hard. There’s not a lot of them (on their roster). They’re all playing both offense and defense. They never quit and were still playing hard in the fourth quarter.” The Cougars (1-5) will travel to play Eastside next week while The Howe School (1-3) travels to North Adams-Jerome (Mich.).

Colts’ Richardson could be more involved vs. Jags JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Trent Richardson scored on his first carry with the Indianapolis Colts, a successful debut that came after just two practices with his new team. Now, after a week of work, he’s facing the perfect defense to help make a big day happen. The Jaguars (0-3) rank last in the NFL in rushing defense, giving up 168 yards a game. It could make for a long afternoon against the Colts (2-1), who suddenly have one of the top backfield tandems in the league with veteran Ahmad Bradshaw and the newly acquired Richardson. “Ahmad Bradshaw took a big load off of me,” Richardson said. “Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne, the offensive line, it’s a big load being taken off of me. When you don’t have to play from behind, you can really get the touches that you really want. We’ve got a two-headed monster. It’s crazy.” The Colts gave up a first-round draft pick in 2014 for the 5-foot-9, 225-pound Richardson, who provided coach Chuck Pagano a bulky back for his power-running scheme. “This guy’s got a rare skill set and has a chance to be a great, great runner,” Pagano said. Richardson ran 13 times for 35 yards in last week’s 27-7 win at San Francisco. He goes against a less-formidable front Sunday in Jacksonville, which

was gouged on the ground by Oakland (226 yards) and Seattle (156 yards). “It’s not very good right now,” Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny said about his team’s run defense. “This is going to be a huge challenge for us. If we want to be any type of team, we have to see vast improvement in that area.” The Jaguars have used more eight-man fronts and single-high safeties in hopes of slowing down opposing running games. But with two new defensive tackles, a new linebacker and as many as three rookies in the secondary, they haven’t all been on the same page early in the season. “We have to be very, very disciplined in how we fit the run,” Posluszny said. “If one guy is wrong, there’s a crease and that’s where the ball goes.” As the Colts try to get Richardson more involved, and the Jaguars try to avoid their third 0-4 start in franchise history, here are five things to keep in mind: RECEIVER WOES: The Jaguars might have to call up two receivers from the practice squad for Sunday’s game. Starter Justin Blackmon is suspended for one more game, backup Mike Brown has a broken bone in his back, and newcomer Stephen Burton is in the concussion program after feeling symptoms Wednesday. Those issues leave Jacksonville



Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson (34) runs against the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday.

with two healthy receivers on the 53-man roster: Cecil Shorts III and rookie Ace Sanders. That could mean a promotion for practice-squad receivers Jeremy Ebert and/or Tobais Palmer. POWER PLAY: The Colts overwhelmed San Francisco with an inside running game. Can they do it again in Jacksonville? Bradshaw, who took over the starting job when Vick Ballard was lost with a season-ending knee injury, looked like his old self, then missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a neck injury. The Colts hope he’ll be able to play Sunday. If so, he’ll probably start again

ahead of Richardson, who is still scrambling to learn Indy’s playbook. But if both play and defenses creep up to the line of scrimmage, that could open it up for Luck and the deep passing game. Jacksonville’s defense was torched for 11 explosive plays at Seattle. ROOKIE SAFETIES: The Jaguars likely will start two rookies at safety: Johnathan Cyprien and Josh Evans. Evans, a sixth-round pick from Florida, is filling in for veteran Dwight Lowery (concussion), who missed some practice and was wearing sunglasses in the locker room one day. Evans played significantly at Seattle, but also made crucial mistakes in the 45-17 loss. “It definitely was a learning experience,” Evans said. “I was put in the fire, and it definitely made me better. I’m glad it happened early in the season rather than later.” COVER CORNER: The Colts spent last week blanketing San Francisco’s receivers the way Pagano wants. But if they need any reminders of how things can go wrong, all they have to do is look at a clip from last year’s September game — specifically the 80-yard TD pass from Blaine Gabbert to Shorts with 45 seconds to go. It’s one of the few plays from 2012 the Colts would like to have back. They upgraded the secondary through free agency and now get another shot at slowing down Shorts.

WEST LAFAYETTE — Soybean producers can easily get an idea of the yield potential of their crops with a Purdue Extension soybean specialist’s calculation method. Soybean yield potential is built on many factors, including the genetics selected, management decisions during the season and the weather. Yield components of soybeans are pods, seed size and number of seeds per pod. “Individual plant production varies, and every field will vary based on pests, soils, fertility and other factors,� said Shaun Casteel. “But I’ve simplified the process of estimating soybean yields so that producers can scout multiple areas quickly while maintaining representative estimates.� Casteel’s system is based on estimated yield in one ten-thousandth of an acre. The basic formula involves multiplying the number of pods by the number of seeds per pod, then dividing that result by the seed size factor. That calculation will show the estimated bushels per acre. To calculate, producers first need to count the number of pods in one ten-thousandth of an acre, an area determined by a 21-inch length of a row of plants and how far apart the rows were planted. “Nearly 90 percent of our Indiana soybean acres are planted in 30-, 15- or 7.5-inch rows, so just remember that each count needs to be 21 inches long,� Casteel said. “You will count the number of pods in one row for 30-inch width, two rows for 15-inch and four rows for 7.5-inch.� Producers should count the number of pods that are

Nearly 90 percent of Indiana soybean acres are planted in 30-, 15- or 7.5-inch rows, so producers need to remember

at stage R5 or higher — when they can see seeds. Next, they must determine the number of seeds per pod. Casteel said using the average of 2.5 seeds per pod is best because there can be a range of 1-4 seeds per pod. “This value is conservative since we don’t know exactly how the rest of the season will finish,� Casteel said. Changing this one value can increase or decrease yield estimates. The third step is to calculate seed size factor. Casteel said the starting point is seed size factor 18, equaling about 3,000 seeds per pound. “If you expect larger seeds from late-season rains, you would divide by a lower seed size factor such as 15, which equals about 2,500

that each count needs to be 21 inches long. For most Indiana fields, the seed size factor will be between 18 and 21.

seeds per pound,� he said. “If the field has late-season stress, such as a lack of water, you would divide by a higher seed size factor like 21, or 3,500 seeds per pound.� For most Indiana fields in 2013, the seed size factor will be between 18 and 21, Casteel said. The three values — number of pods in stage R5 or higher, number of seeds per pod and seed size factor — go into Casteel’s equation. For example, 250 pods times 2.5 seeds per pod divided by a seed size factor 15 equals 41.7 bushels per acre. Fair soybean growth with limited pod retention but with good late-season moisture will result in a fair crop. Although producers can start estimating yields

as soybeans enter the R5 stage, the estimates will be more accurate as soybeans develop and enter R6, or full seed. If soybeans are just coming into R6, Casteel said the yield potential still depends on pod retention and seed size. The weather is an important contributor to yield potential, and dry conditions over the past 4-5 weeks have lowered yield potential in some fields. “Reductions in excessive heat and the return of rain helped yield potentials more in seed size than pod retention assuming the soybeans are into R6 and beginning to drop leaves,� Casteel said. “If fields are green, soybean yield potentials could improve. If fields are losing foliage, yield gains will be very limited.�

Flooding, mud could end up improving Colorado soil JOHNSTOWN, Colo. (AP) — Surging waters in Colorado swept away barns, silos and fences and left houses covered in mud in this northern agricultural town. The flood waters were so powerful they uprooted irrigation pipes and spread them around the fields here, leaving lakes next to which cattle now graze. They also brought instant relief to drought-hardened areas, with the promise of moisture restored in deep soils and the possibility of reservoirs refilling to help farmers well into next year. “There is a silver lining if we look down the road,� said Ron Carleton, the deputy commissioner of agriculture for the state. “We just have to get past these near-term impacts.� The damage to Colorado’s multibillion agriculture industry — the state’s third-largest at $8.5 billion last year — is vast: Aerial footage shows broad swaths of inundated farmland. Rows of crops up and down the South Platte River were submerged, everything from corn, lettuce, onions and soybeans. “We’ve seen these rivers come up before. We’ve never seen it like this,� said Ron Kline Jr., whose family runs Kline Farms in the region.

Carleton, who has been touring the flooded areas, said officials won’t have a full picture of the damage until water recedes. However, they’ve begun to identify potential areas of concern. The corn harvest had just begun, and there could be losses there, as well as in produce farms in Weld County, Carleton said. “Just from driving around you see land underwater. That tells you a lot right there. It’s land that’s certainly not producing right now,� he said. On Kline’s farm, the waters pushed a shed and the equipment inside down a road. A semi-truck and trailer was turned 90 degrees. A 700-gallon tank of engine oil is nowhere to be found. “It’s somewhere between here and Nebraska,� said Kline, who farms corn, wheat and alfalfa. Troy Seaworth, whose family owns Seaworth Farms in Wellington, on the northern edge of the flooding, is one of the farmers who will be looking to see how much water was captured in reservoirs. It will take time for that to become evident. “If we capture this year for next year, that’s a good thing — that’s a great thing,� he said. Seaworth,

who plants sugar beets, wheat, and corn, said his farm was for the most part spared. But the storms have forced him to delay corn silage harvest and the cutting of alfalfa. Still, he’s not expecting major economic losses. Delaying harvest of crops could mean reduced quality in some cases because they’ll be past maturity, said Keith Maxey, the director of Weld County’s extension office for Colorado State University. Maxey said damaged roads will also have a big effect for farmers and ranchers. With transportation routes impaired, it’s going to take them longer to move their products, adding fuel and labor costs. “Rather than just a five-minute trip, it’s going to be 30 minutes,� he said. Weld County commissioners agree, and say they’re already looking at how to get temporary roads pending permanent fixes. Local government officials say it’s too early to get an assessment of how much the damage will cost. While some counties have not yet estimated how much land was damaged, Weld County has said they believe the number to be more than 2,300 parcels of agricultural land.

WEST LAFAYETTE — Agribusiness professionals will better understand what drives loyalty and buying decisions of commercial producers by attending the National Conference for Agribusiness Nov. 4-5 at Purdue University. Guest speakers will discuss information from the Large Commercial Producer Project, a nationwide survey of the buying behaviors of commercial farmers and ranchers. The Purdue Center for Food and Agricultural Business conducts the survey every five years. “The agenda is packed with interesting topics and sessions built around understanding large commercial agricultural producers’ strategies, buying behaviors, information preferences and loyalty,� said Michael Gunderson, associate professor and associate director of research at the Center for Food and Agricultural Business, the

conference organizer. The conference will examine several key topics from the survey data, including insights to producers’ loyalty to brands and retailers, understanding what is critical to the success of their operations, time spent on management, and the importance of dealers and sales staff in buying decisions. About 300 people are expected to attend the conference, which would be of interest to managers, executives, specialists and analysts from such organizations as agricultural retailers, farm equipment manufacturers and dealers, retail seed company and distributors, crop protection companies, animal health and nutrition companies, and food product manufacturers and processors. The cost to attend is $1,295. Continuing education credit and Certified Crop Adviser credit is available. For more information, call the center at 765-494-4247.



Innovation or stagnation Invent something and the first thing that goes through some people’s minds — especially politicians’ minds — is what might go wrong. 3D printers now allow you to mold objects right in your living room, using patterns you find online. It’s a revolutionary invention that will save time, reduce shipping costs and be kind to the earth. But what critics see is: guns! People will print guns at home! Well, sure. On TV, Rachel Maddow sneered about “a well-armed anarchist utopia, where fends for JOHN everybody themselves with stupidplastic guns. … It’s STOSSEL looking a political effort to try to do away with government.” Do away with government? If only we could do away with some! Big-government politicians and their cheerleaders in the media focus on threats posed by innovation because they fear loss of control. They move to ban things. In Texas, Cody Wilson used a 3D printer to make a plastic gun. He called it “the Liberator” and posted its specs on the Internet. The State Department then ordered him to take the specs Overwhelmingly, down. He innovation brings us did. But by then, 100,000 good things. people had downloaded it. Wilson takes pride in pointing out how his gun shows that gun “control” is an illusion. Being able to print a gun in your own home will render laws against purchasing guns unenforceable and irrelevant. “I’m your full-service provocateur,” Wilson told Kennedy, my TV show’s correspondent. “Here’s the printed gun. I’m not here to make you feel better about it. I’m here to say, ‘Look, this space is occupied. Deal with it.’” The “Liberator” didn’t work well. It broke before Kennedy could fire a shot. However, printed guns will improve over time. Wilson’s point: “Prohibiting this is no longer effective.” Technological innovation constantly threatens centralized authorities. Now we take the Internet for granted, but when it first became popular, people worried that it would mainly be used by terrorists, child molesters and money-launderers. “Smash the Internet!” said a cover story in the conservative magazine Weekly Standard, illustrated with a sledgehammer smashing a computer screen. Even today, after Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, eBay, Yelp, Craigslist, WebMD, YouTube and more have clearly made our lives better, Luddites in the media fret about problems. “The Internet Is Making Kids Stupid” says PC Magazine. CBS’s Bob Schieffer whines that in the absence of supervising editors, “ignorance travels as rapidly as great ideas.” There’s some truth behind these complaints. The Internet does make some people isolated. It does allow ignorant ideas to spread. But so what? It also creates new forms of human interaction and allows the crowd of users to correct ignorant mistakes. Schieffer is prematurely old, but even hip novelists like Dave Eggers and Jonathan Franzen worry about the Net. Eggers’ latest novel suggests it creates “unnaturally extreme” needs, and a Franzen essay attacks “technoconsumerism.” Comedian Louis CK gets laughs by worrying that cell phones just keep us distracted — but not really happy or sad — until we die. He’d prefer his kids didn’t have them. They are right that any activity can become a time-waster, but to all the fearmongers I say, stop whining! Overwhelmingly, innovation brings us good things. It’s even changed the way Americans find love. A University of Chicago study says 35 percent of new marriages now start online. We don’t think twice about miracles like computer dating or email or the fact that, today, most everyone in the world has access to all the world’s knowledge on a little phone. We take it for granted that we can put a piece of plastic into a wall and cash will come out — and the count is always accurate. Government couldn’t do that. Government can’t even count votes accurately. In a free market, a symphony of desires comes together, and they’re met by people who constantly rack their brains to provide better services and invent solutions to our desires. It’s not a few people desiring guns that I fear. It’s government getting in the way of all those new possibilities.

Enjoy our final dances outdoors as autumn sets in The autumnal equinox has once again showered us with the ending of summer and the beginning of harvest rituals. There are those among us who shiver at the thought of the oncoming winter, and those who embrace these winds that blow over our fields and into our homes. I am of the second group. I love the ritual of closing my windows at night and pulling out the quilts and woollen blankets from trunks and closets. I love the once-again smell of autumn foods in the kitchen and pulling out the jeans and sweaters. The slanting of the morning sun and the heavy dew on the fields alert me to the changes that are coming. Each day I check the passage of the sun patterns on my prisms as they gleam across my floors. When I lived on the farm the harvest was plentiful. On the days leading up to the frost we were “food gatherers” placing food in proper places for the lean winter days ahead. Jars were filled, crocks were packed with kraut and the root cellar was full with squash and pumpkins. We braided onions, made cider, cooked down pumpkins and made sure my knitting basket was full of sheep’s wool for the making of hats and mittens for my three boys. Today I have a meager harvest … a few tomatoes in the garden to put up, raspberries to pick, herbs to hang and the last of the summer flowers to keep the summer colors going. I am grateful for our local farmers market where I can bring home bushels of food to store and to preserve a few jars of the bounty. We, who live in this rural area, are fortunate to know the changing of the seasons. Our sweet town is full of life and color thanks to Autumn in Angola and to the sights and sounds of the troops camped out anticipating the Civil War. On this weekend you can chat with Mark

Twain, watch Lincoln come into town, listen to our own groups of musicians and storytellers, or sit under the trees with family and friends sharing food. My kids have great memories of Fall Fest dating back 25 years or so when it was held at Pokagon. For 10 years we all participated in candle making, cider pressing and even hammering out nails on Adam’s forge. Abe tells me it was the favorite LOU ANN event of his childhood. Autumn winds bring HOMAN- folks tumbling into this old house as well. Adam SAYLOR shows up on my doorstep for dinner and a few days of salmon fishing with Aaron and the boys. The ritual of fishing in the river and camping nearby is only possible with the turning of the calendar. My door opens to four “warm shower” travelers as they meandered into town on their bicycles this week. Three girls arrive at dusk on Monday evening heading toward New York from California. The candle burns late as we share stories of travel and adventures on the road. On Thursday evening another young man comes into my garden gate with his bicycle. Carl is traveling from Buffalo to San Francisco. By this time of year most of my visitors have already traveled the Sierras and the Rocky Mountains, but he is heading west. “Go south, young man,” is about all I can say to Carl. Philip, of Ocracoke, has also come to visit, although not by bicycle. It is always nice when he graces this old house with his stories and his own island adventure tales. His visit is also brief as

With the house full of guests, supper on the stove and another log on the campfire, it is time to whisper goodbye to our summer.

• the ocean winds beckon him back home. But he does stay long enough to share in the goodness of rural America and rituals of autumn. With the house full of guests, supper on the stove and another log on the campfire, it is time to whisper goodbye to our summer. Without dreading the coming of winter, it is time to celebrate the harvest, friendships, the joy of living in small towns, and you, my friends. Open up your windows, air out your blankets, pick the last of your flowers for a bouquet on your windowsill and enjoy the last dance. Hopefully I will see you out and about in town this weekend. Don’t stay home. Come on out and see what joys and celebrations abound among us. “O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stain’d With the blood of grape, pass not, but sit Beneath my shady roof; there thou may’st rest.” — William Blake, 1783 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.

The real mystery isn’t whodunnit, but why is it so easy to believe that small towns could have such huge crime waves. JIM MULLEN is a syndicated columnist with Newspaper Enterprise Association.

Teen must prove she is ready for dating DEAR ABBY: I’m a 14-year-old girl who’s having a disagreement with my parents about dating. There’s this guy, “Connor,” who likes me, and I’m very comfortable with him. His older sister and I are good friends. The trouble is, my parents have strict rules against dating and I think it’s unfair. I think I’m mature enough to date, and I know right from wrong. My friends say I’m very mature for my age, and they approve of Connor because he’s friendly and has an outgoing personality. I have tried talking to my parents about this, but I always end up in tears. Can you tell me how I can convince them to give this guy a chance? — GROWN UP AT 14, PRINCE GEORGE, CANADA DEAR GROWN UP: A sure way to show your parents you’re mature enough to date would be to




DEAR ABBY: I’m 13 years old and I recently enrolled in a new school. I have met two boys, “Jake” and “Cory,” and I have been crushing on both of them. I really like Jake for everything, but I’m not sure he likes me back. I like Cory for his looks and popularity, and I’m positive he likes me because he said so. Should I ask Jake to go with me first, and if he says no, rebound to Cory? — CONFUSED DEAR CONFUSED: The school year has just started and it’s a little early to be asking someone to “go” with you. If you take your time — say, wait a month — Jake may find the courage to tell you he likes you, too. If he doesn’t, tell Cory you’re interested in him and see if he still feels the same way about you. (The odds are 50/50.) And who knows? In another month, there might be a third guy.

That’s when the muscles suddenly are being asked to work harder than they can, because of their reduced blood supply. When a person stops exercising, caused ASK pain by atheroDOCTOR K. sclerosis typically goes away Dr. Anthony over the next minute or Komaroff two. Of course, many different conditions can cause leg pain when we exercise. In particular, injuries to leg muscles or to the hip, knee, ankle or foot can cause exercise pain. Just from your symptoms

alone, it can be hard to be sure what is causing leg pain when you exercise. A key test for problems in peripheral arteries is the ankle-brachial index, or ABI. An ABI compares blood pressure readings from the ankle and the brachial artery, which is the major blood vessel in the upper arm. The test is done using a blood pressure cuff and an ultrasound probe. Normally, blood pressure is similar whether it is measured in the legs or in the arms. If blood pressure is lower in the legs, it usually means that fatty buildup inside the leg arteries is interfering with circulation. The doctor will calculate your ABI by taking the highest pressure recorded at your ankle and dividing it by the highest pressure recorded at your arm. The normal range is between 0.90 and 1.30. A result under 0.90 means that blood is

DEAR DOCTOR K: I had some pain in my leg while exercising, and now my doctor wants to do an ankle-brachial index test. How is it done? And what will it tell him? DEAR READER: Atherosclerosis stiffens and clogs our arteries. It attacks the coronary arteries that provide blood to the heart muscle and causes heart attacks. It also attacks the arteries of the brain, causing strokes. Atherosclerosis also often affects the peripheral arteries of the legs. When we exercise our leg muscles, they can reach the point where we’re asking them to work harder than their blood supply allows. When that happens, they scream in pain. The leg pain caused by atherosclerosis is usually felt in the calf, though sometimes it is felt in the thigh. Typically, the pain

Do you do the chores DEAR that are of ABBY expected you without having to be reminded? Jeanne Phillips Is the same true about your homework? If the answer to these questions is yes, then do they KNOW Connor? Do they know his parents?

having a hard time getting to the legs and feet. The lower the number, the higher the chances of leg pain while exercising or of limb-threatening low blood flow. On the other end, an ABI above 1.30 is usually a sign of stiff, calcium-encrusted arteries. These often occur in people with diabetes or chronic kidney disease. The ABI also offers information about your general cardiovascular health. An ABI result under 0.90, for example, also indicates an increased risk of heart attack, stroke or dying of heart disease. That’s because people with severe atherosclerosis of the arteries of the leg usually also have atherosclerosis of the arteries of the heart and brain. I hope your test goes well. DR.
