GOOD MORNING Traffic stop leads to two arrests on drug charges BY PATRICK REDMOND email@example.com
LAGRANGE - A routine traffic stop early Friday morning in LaGrange led to three people being arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs. Seth Bender, 20, Bender and Jeffery Lynn Coney, 49, both of Topeka, were arrested by a LaGrange police after the car they were in was stopped at the intersec- Coney tion of Poplar and Michigan streets shortly after 1 a.m. Bender was charged with possession of Methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance. Coney was charged with possession of Methamphetamine, visiting a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia. Using a police LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department K-9 unit on the car, police said the dog alerted the officers to several containers in the car and on the men that allegedly contained methamphetamine. Officers said they also found drug paraphernalia in the car. Based on what police found inside the car, officers from the LaGrange Police Department, in cooperation with the LaGrange County prosecutor’s office, secured a search warrant from the LaGrange County Superior Court to search the Topeka Yoder Street home of Coney. Police said while at Conley’s home, they found additional items associated with the possession, consumption and delivery of methamphetamine. The prosecutor’s office is reviewing additional charged against Coney.
Schools focus on adult education BY JENNIFER DECKER firstname.lastname@example.org
KENDALLVILLE — Two Kendallville schools are addressing adult education across the four-county area, as welding and health-related careers continue to be in high demand. Freedom Academy and IMPACT Institute are separate schools, but they work hand-in-hand meeting education needs for students from DeKalb, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben and Whitley counties. More students are considering popular careers, said Sandy Hadley, Freedom Academy director of education. “The big ones are certified nurse aide, welding because there’s a big need, computer numerical control,” she said. “We also offer patient access — if you go to the hospital, they’re
the first person you see who take your insurance” and ensure a good experience. Freedom Academy’s website said the school offers courses in business, computers, real estate management and supervision, safety-quality assurance, apprenticeships, medical care and technology. It also has certificate programs in medical office, office fundamentals, supervision, human resources and welding. The academy is working at keeping up with career demands based on changing times. “One thing we shifted to five years ago is to national certifications. When you go to apply, it says from a national level the person was able to pass,” Hadley said. “They have to meet certain standards.”

Budget battle As shutdown nears, GOP seeks health care delay
ville home. Next month they will celebrate their 67th wedding anniversary. About two years ago, Galbraith decided he’d better write down his memories of those war years to pass on to his family. He wrote a book, “World War II and Me,” with help from his daughter, and the manuscript was published this year by FriesenPress of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Galbraith, whose body has slowed over the years but not his mind or his wit, writes in the book’s forward that it was inspired
WASHINGTON (AP) — Locked in a deepening struggle with President Barack Obama, the Republican-controlled House pushed legislation toward passage Saturday night imposing a one-year delay on parts of the nation’s new health care law and repealing a tax on medical devices as the price for avoiding a partial government shutdown in a few days’ time. Senate Democrats pledged to reject the measure even before the House began debating it, and the White House issued a statement vowing a veto in any event. Republicans are pursuing “a narrow ideological agenda … and pushing the government towards shutdown,” it said. As the day wore on, even some Republicans said privately they feared that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., held the advantage in the fast-approaching end game. If so, a House GOP rank and file that includes numerous tea party allies would soon have to choose between triggering the first partial shutdown in nearly two decades — or coming away from the confrontation empty-handed. Undeterred, House Republicans pressed ahead with their latest attempt to squeeze a concession from the White House in exchange

Colnul “Coney” Galbraith, 87, of Kendallville served aboard the destroyer U.S.S. Chevalier in the closing months of World War II. He has
written a book, “World War II and Me,” about his experiences.
Navy veteran writes book BY DENNIS NARTKER email@example.com
KENDALLVILLE — Colnul “Coney” Galbraith was setting pins for bowlers at the Orpheum Recreation Center in the Orpheum Theater in Pontiac, Mich. on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941. He was 15 years old and working nights after school and on weekends. He was paid 5 cents a game — or a line as it was called in those days. “There was a Sunday morning league, and I was getting the pins ready when I saw everyone stop and get quiet,” he said this
week. “They were at the front desk listening to the radio. The Japanese had just bombed Pearl Harbor. We all stood there stunned.” Galbraith, 87, can recall vividly that moment when he heard the news as a teenager. Three years later he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. “It was just something you did. I had friends who joined, and I wanted to,” he said. The World War II veteran and his wife, Juanita, reside with Galbraith’s daughter, Diane VanderKaay, in her rural Kendall-

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Before leaving for the United Nations, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said he hoped to open a new era in dialogue with Washington. He returned to Tehran on Saturday with more in hand than even the most optimistic predictions. Now begins the harder task for Rouhani and his inner circle of Western-educated envoys and advisers, who are suddenly partners with the White House in a potentially history-shifting reset in the Middle East that could push beyond the nuclear standoff and rival in scope the Arab Spring or Israel’s peace pact with Egypt. To build on the stunning diplomatic openings of the past days, Rouhani and his allies now must navigate political channels that make President Barack Obama’s showdowns with his domestic critics seem almost genteel by comparison. Possibly standing in the way of Rouhani’s overtures is an array of hard-liners, led by the hugely powerful Revolutionary Guard, holding sway over nearly everything from Iran’s nuclear
program to a paramilitary network that reaches each neighborhood. What’s ahead will measure Rouhani’s resolve. It also will test how much the Guard and its backers are willing to accept something other than spite and suspicion toward the U.S. — and what it could all mean for the Guard’s regional footholds that include Syria and the anti-Israel militia Hezbollah in Lebanon. At Rouhani’s airport arrival in Tehran, backers cheered and held aloft a placard calling him a “lord of peace,” while opponents shouted insults and chanted “death to America.” One thing is certain, however. The rapid-fire momentum of diplomacy over the past days — fed by Twitter’s no-breather pace — cannot be maintained. The linchpin, as always, remains Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the gate keeper for every key decision. He has so far given critical support to Rouhani’s overtures with Washington —

Daniels’ contract details revealed Woman battles state on vet issues
WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — Purdue University’s trustees have revealed details of the goals Purdue President Mitch Daniels must meet in order to earn his full salary. The information released during Friday’s trustees
meeting shows that about 30 percent of Daniels’ $546,000 presidential salary, or about $126,000, would be at risk if he doesn’t meet five annual goals aimed at improving student success. The Journal & Courier reports that fundraising
efforts will be given the most weight in determining Daniels’ incentive pay, accounting for 30 percent of the performance pay structure. Improving on graduation rates and student affordability each will account for 25 percent.
Measuring Purdue’s academic excellence and student academic knowledge each will be worth 10 percent. School committees are working on metrics to go along with each of those performance goals.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A disabled Air Force veteran is challenging the state’s commitment to female veterans, saying a decision to cancel a conference for women who’ve served in the military and the state’s failure to replace a key coordinator send the wrong message. Lisa Wilken said the conference that was canceled earlier this year is important for female veterans and objected to a state suggestion that some events targeting women be added to a health expo in October instead. “A conference is important to meet veterans and veteran advocates, learn about services, do a benefits review,” Wilken told The Journal Gazette. “It allows us to have fellowship with each other and celebrate our service. You don’t want to just see each other at funerals.” Wilken’s concern focuses on a female veterans advocacy program started in 2006 under former Gov. Mitch Daniels. The coordinator headed the program, which included an annual conference addressing the unique problems faced by women in the military. About 300 women
attended the first conference held in Indianapolis in 2007. The daylong seminar included speakers on combat experiences, benefits, women’s health providers and more. The conference continued in 2008 and 2009 but wasn’t held in 2010, when a new coordinator was appointed. The event returned in 2011 and 2012. The coordinator’s position is empty again, and Wilken and other female veterans gathered last week outside the Indianapolis Department of Veterans Affairs to call for it to be filled. Wilken, a member of the Hoosier Women Veterans Group, said the group will urge legislators to craft a bill that would do so. “They would be a one-stop shop for information. They would know about benefits at the state level, federal level and benefits in their local communities,” Wilken told The Indianapolis Star. “We’re not any more special than our male counterparts, but our issues are gender-specific.” There are more than 33,000 female veterans in Indiana, according to the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Planned $71M project will transform downtown Fort Wayne BY DOUG LEDUC firstname.lastname@example.org
The city of Fort Wayne plans to build a parking garage and acquire and prepare land for a $71-million project that will retain area jobs and help continue the revitalization of the downtown area by bringing a corporate headquarters there. The city will invest $19.5 million, Ash Brokerage Corp. will invest $19.6 million in a new corporate headquarters and Hanning & Bean Enterprises will invest $32 million in a residential development. They said Sept. 23 at a news conference in the Grand Wayne Convention Center downtown the project — bordered by Wayne, Harrison, Barry and Webster streets — probably would take about two years to complete, with construction starting next March. “It’s going to be a different type of project for Fort Wayne,” said Bill Bean, vice president of Hanning & Bean. “This project has the potential to be a game-changer,” he said. “It will be a world-class project for downtown that will be an example for other projects like it. “Go into any young, vibrant downtown area and this is the type of project you’ll see,” he said. “They’re doing this all over the country in those cities.” Most of the property that will be acquired for the project will consist of parking lots and vacant buildings. It will require the relocation of Cindy’s Diner at 830 S. Harrison St., a tattoo parlor and some tenants of an office building at the intersection of Berry and Webster streets. “Cindy’s Diner fully plans on relocating,” said Angie Harter, a waitress there. “At the current

Walkup fills vacant position on the Kendallville City Council KENDALLVILLE — Frank Walkup will fill the District 3 City Council seat vacated by Republican April Waters, who resigned last month after moving out of the district. Walkup, 64, was selected by District 3 precinct committee members Dave Langwell and Jack Frederick at Thursday night’s Republican caucus. Walkup was the only candidate to apply for the seat, according to Mayor Suzanne Handshoe. Walkup said he became interested in city government through the mayor’s citizen academy. He accepted the mayor’s appointment to the Plan Commission, and he also was a member of the sesquicentennial committee that planned the city’s 150th anniversary celebration. Walkup said now that he is retired he has more time to expand his interest in city government. “I love Kendallville, and when I saw the council had a vacancy, I decided to apply,” he said.
East Noble hires Auburn driving school KENDALLVILLE — East Noble High School is discontinuing driver education for at least a year and partnering with an Auburn-based company that will provide training for students, including online coursework and in-car instruction. Wednesday night the East Noble school board voted to take a “one-year sabbatical” from driver education and follow the administration’s recommended to offer it Drive Right Academy Inc. School trustees agreed to review the partnership after one year before deciding whether to continue with Drive Right. “Our numbers are down, and costs keep going up,” Superintendent Ann Linson told the board. East Noble had 50 students in its summer driver ed program, each paying a $350 course fee. In the past, East Noble has more than 100 students in the program paying $200 each. Drive Right Academy was started by two DeKalb High School teachers and has been contracted by several area school corporations.
Longest-serving woman lawmaker dies NEW HAVEN — Colleagues and Indiana leaders praised state Rep. Phyllis Pond, R-New Haven, Monday, in the wake of her death Sept. 22. Pond had been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis in early September and recently resigned her seat in the Indiana House of Representatives, effective Oct. 15, due to her health. Pond was elected to the state Legislature in 1978 and was the longest-serving woman state representative in Indiana history. For several years, her district included southern portions of DeKalb County. “She will be fondly remembered as a strong leader for our state who always spoke her mind and would move mountains for her constituents. She will be sorely missed,” said Rep. Dave Ober, R-Albion. “She just brought a certain civility to the process. She was a lady. I just hope I can be as well thought of as she some day,” State Rep. Dennis Zent, R-Angola, said.
moment we are waiting for some of the people with the city to assist in finding a new spot.” The project will look like three buildings in one, with a four-story corporate headquarters and a 13-story residential development built atop a four-story parking garage. The top story of the Ash office tower will be the eighth floor and the top story of the residential development will be the 17th floor. The buildings will be connected by a green space on the roof of the parking garage. The residential tower
Brokerage has locations, including Detroit and Cincinnati, sought to attract its headquarters. Ash Brokerage chose to invest in a downtown Fort Wayne headquarters partly because its roots are here and because company leaders have been impressed by “everything that’s been happening here with the decision of the city to make it a better community to live in,” Ash said. Some of the more important downtown projects undertaken since Parkview Field opened in April 2009 include: the Courtyard by Marriott hotel; the Harrison
“Even though we haven’t had much experience with the residential side … it’s something I’ve thought for some time was needed downtown. You have the obvious success here of the Harrison, which is now 100 percent full,” Bean said. “There are a lot of people that said it couldn’t be done,” he said. “Now they have a waiting list, and we’re going to try to take some of those off of their hands here and put them into this building … We already have a couple of people interested.” The Ash Brokerage building will include 95,000 square feet of office space,

will reach a height of 215 feet. The 40,000-square-foot rooftop green space will be the largest of its kind in Indiana. MSKTD & Associates will design the Ash office tower, Design Collaborative will do the residential tower and Hoch Associates will do the parking garage. The three Fort Wayne-based architectural firms will work together on the project as one under the name Emerald Design Group. Weigand Construction will be the project’s general contractor. About 21,600 square feet in the first floor of the parking garage along Harrison, Wayne and part of Berry streets will be storefront development, and six street-front townhouses will be built into 13,500 square feet of its first two floors along Webster Street.

apartment, office and retail complex overlooking the baseball stadium; and the conversion of the Anthony Wayne Building from office to mixed-use, with retail space, 40 condominiums and office space. Ash Brokerage believes its headquarters relocation can make an important contribution to continued downtown revitalization by serving as “a catalyst for other businesses to relocate and come downtown,” Ash said. It had been more than 20 years since a company had announced plans to make a large investment downtown with a large work force and headquarters relocation, he said. Ash said he was pleased that the company’s downtown investment served as a catalyst for the project’s residential component, and he predicted some Ash Brokerage employees would choose to live there once the new apartments, condos and townhouses become available.
which will be occupied by about 220 employees who work at its main office at 7609 W. Jefferson Blvd. Ash Brokerage, which was founded in the city more than 40 years ago, distributes annuity and life, disability and long-term care insurance products to more than 10,000 financial advisers in a given year. During the last 10 years it has grown from about 100 employees and one location to a company with a nationwide work force of about 320 working in 15 locations. Ash Brokerage projects continued internal growth, and expects to employ an additional 115 in Fort Wayne by 2017. The company is a source of the kind of good jobs economic developers seek to attract: its average annual wage is $60,000 plus benefits. The company began working on plans for a new headquarters about 18 months ago. Tim Ash, president and chief executive officer, said some of the other cities where Ash

Feud spurs attack ASHVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A couple broke into a Pennsylvania home and killed the woman’s mother and brother before being shot to death by her father, the culmination of a long-running feud fueled by what a relative said Saturday was the woman’s “hatred” for her family. State police said the home invasion happened Friday night in Ashville, a rural community about 40 miles southwest of State College in central Pennsylvania. Investigators said the father found his wife and son fatally shot, then in turn shot the two intruders. The father, identified by a relative as John Frew, was not injured. The relative, Virginia Cruse, said the victims included her 64-year-old sister Roberta Frew and the couple’s 47-year-old son. She identified the slain assailants as Frew’s daughter, Josephine, and her husband, Jeff Ruckinger.

She was everybody’s Aunt Elsie BY JENNIFER DECKER email@example.com
ANGOLA — She was everyone’s Aunt Elsie and known as an institution for 44 years at Cameron Memorial Community Hospital. Elsie Williamson, 89, Angola, died July 4 at Parkview Regional Medical Center, Fort Wayne. Her nieces, Sharon Dodge and Shirlee Mitchell, said their aunt was known for the many little things she did, for her kindness, spirit in serving others, strong faith and love of music. Elsie was born Nov. 24, 1923, to Arthur and Isora (Court) Williamson Williamson and grew up in the rural Fremont area, where she graduated from the Scott Center School. Elsie grew up on the family farm, where she kept and ran the house, baby-sat and tended to whatever else needed attention. Though she never married, she didn’t start driving until later in life because a family member was ill. Elsie was deeply devoted to the North Scott Christian Church, where she was a lifelong member. Every Sunday, she shared her faith through playing the piano. Church members now say they don’t know
what they will do without their pillar, Elsie. “She grew up in the North Scott Church,” Dodge said. “She played piano and organ. She fell and hurt her shoulder and was off a few months, but then got back to it. Her music was a big part of her family.” Elsie was perhaps best known for her 44-year association with Cameron, where she worked in the dietary department for 29 years. She then volunteered with the auxiliary for 15 more years in a variety of roles. Through her affiliation with the hospital, she worked with generations of workers. Elsie worked the afternoon shift in dietary and had the task of bringing patients their trays of food. In the wintertime, Elsie thought nothing of driving the eight miles home at night in the dark along drifting country roads. “Cameron was like her second family. Before her job, her life revolved around neighbors, church and family,” Dodge said. “She loved the job and was a people person. She probably said prayers for patients,” Mitchell said. “She was everyone’s aunt, and she was always positive.” It was common for Elsie to tear out little verses from publications or devotionals and treasure them. As Dodge and Mitchell go through
their aunt’s belongings, they said, they keep coming upon pleasant surprises of words that touched her. Elsie lived at Cameron Woods, and Mitchell said it was common for her aunt to look out for other residents. “My aunt was known for doing little things. One patient said Aunt Elsie put out cream and sugar for her coffee. It was never huge — it was the little things,” Mitchell said. Always one for a huge garden, Elsie grew all kinds of vegetables she canned, including asparagus. She always had beautiful violets. The week before she died, Elsie insisted that Mitchell take violet leaves home to start. They did grow, except one little flower has hung on that Mitchell said she talks to daily, telling it to hold on and be resilient. Elsie made many mouths water with her deviled eggs and baked goods such as cranberry bars, apricot pies, sugar pies, carrot cookies and custard. She often donated her baked goods to charitable causes, and they usually quickly sold out. Dodge said her aunt, of course, wasn’t one for accolades. “Eighty-nine years of always being a servant to everyone,” Dodge said. Memorials may be made to the North Scott Christian Church or the Lake James Christian Assembly.
House bill improves drug safety WASHINGTON (AP) — The House easily approved bipartisan legislation Saturday aimed at improving the safety of drugs produced by compounding pharmacies that mix customized pharmaceuticals. The measure, approved on a voice vote, comes almost a year after a meningitis outbreak that killed 64 people and sickened hundreds more was traced to a compounding company in Framingham, Mass. Inspectors later found

unsanitary conditions at the New England Compounding Center, which has since closed. The measure, aimed at improving how drugs are tracked from production until they are purchased at a drug store, would clarify what sponsors said was confusion over the Food and Drug Administration’s authority over compounded drugs. It would also require the agency to coordinate its oversight of compounded-drug safety with states. Compounders could
voluntarily register as outsourcing facilities, which would bring them under FDA authority. Registering will let the agency identify who these companies are and what they produce, and allow the FDA to receive reports about any problems. Companies that remain traditional pharmacies would continue to be overseen mostly by state pharmacy boards. The Senate is working on similar legislation. “We are near the resolution of last year’s deadly
outbreak,” said Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and an author of the legislation. That panel’s top Democrat, Rep. Henry Waxman of California, said, “There is no question that this bill represents a step forward.” Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., criticized the legislation, saying its voluntary registration for compounding companies “is not strong enough to ensure the public safety.”
Iraqi official doubts civil war prospects against killing each other’s followers. More than 4,500 people have been killed since April in a surge of violence by insurgents aimed at undermining confidence in the Shiite-led government. The violence began to surge after government security forces staged a deadly crackdown on a Sunni protest camp in the north. The Sunni minority has grown increasingly angry over what it sees as unfair treatment at the hands of the

government and tensions have risen markedly since U.S. forces withdrew in 2011. The growing unrest is marked by frequent coordinated car bombings and other attacks blamed mostly on al-Qaida’s local branch targeting police, the military and often Shiite Muslim areas. The carnage is intensifying fears that Iraq is heading back toward the widespread Sunni-Shiite sectarian killing that peaked in 2006 and 2007.

Zebari said the recent increase in terrorist or sectarian violence is partly a consequence of the spillover from the conflict in neighboring Syria. He blamed extreme Shiite militias and al-Qaida’s local branch in Iraq, known as the Islamic State of Iraq, which is believed to be trying to build on the Sunni minority’s discontent toward what they consider to be secondclass treatment by Iraq’s Shiite-led government.

Briefs • Ex-soldier pleads not guilty in killing plot NEW YORK (AP) — A former U.S. solder nicknamed Rambo pleaded not guilty Saturday to charges he plotted with phony Colombian drug traffickers to kill a federal agent for $800,000. Joseph Hunter, stocky and wearing a wrinkled gray prison jumpsuit, was held after the brief appearance in federal court in Manhattan. His lawyer declined to comment. An indictment unsealed Friday described the 48-year-old Hunter as a contract killer and leader of a trio of former soldiers who were trained snipers. Hunter, a resident of Thailand, was flown Friday evening to New York after he was expelled from Thailand, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said. Hunter was charged with conspiracy, attempting to import cocaine and plotting to kill a law enforcement agent.
Italy’s coalition government in crisis MILAN (AP) — Italy’s fragile coalition government was pushed into a full-fledged crisis Saturday after five ministers from former Premier Silvio Berlusconi’s political party announced their resignations. The move drew the ire of Premier Enrico Letta, who accused Berlusconi of a “crazy” gesture aimed at covering up his personal affairs. The five-month-old government has teetered for weeks since the high court confirmed Berlusconi’s tax fraud conviction.
Greek authorities arrest leader, other extreme rightists ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The leader of Greece’s extreme-right Golden Dawn party and four other of its parliamentarians were formally charged Saturday with membership in a criminal organization with intent to commit crimes, in an escalation of a government crackdown after a fatal stabbing blamed on a supporter. It was the first time since 1974 that sitting members of Parliament have been arrested. The arrests underline the Greek government’s efforts to stifle the fiercely anti-immigrant party, which has been increasingly on the defensive since the killing. Golden Dawn leader Nikos Michaloliakos, party spokesman Ilias Kassidiaris and Yannis Lagos, Nikos Michos and Ilias Panayiotaros were arrested by counterterrorism police.
People • Scott: Playing jerks comes naturally LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reid Scott is used to being cast as an abrasive character, his latest being scheming Washington political aide Dan Egan in “Veep.” Scott jokes that playing jerks “just comes naturally,” but he clearly has a softer Scott side. This spring, he flew cross-country to San Francisco to ask Elspeth Keller’s father for his permission to marry the actress. And now Scott and Keller are planning a wedding that pays tribute to their combined family heritage. “Her grandmother was a librarian and mine was a literature professor,” said Scott, and that helped the couple pick the steps of a Los Angeles public library for their wedding next year.
Flaws doom firefighters PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — A three-month investigation into the June deaths of 19 Arizona firefighters found that the men ceased radio communication for a half hour before they were killed in a wildfire blaze, but did not assign fault. Some family members say that reluctance could put other lives in danger. The 120-page report released Saturday found that proper procedure was followed in the worst firefighting tragedy since Sept. 11, 2001. Investigators suggested that the state of Arizona should possibly update its guidelines and look into better tracking technology. All but one member of the Granite Mountain Hotshots crew died June 30 while protecting the small former gold rush town of Yarnell, about 80 miles northwest
of Phoenix, from an erratic, lightning-sparked wildfire. Hotshots are elite backcountry firefighters who hike deep into the brush to fight blazes. While maintaining a neutral tone, the investigation cited badly programmed radios, vague updates, and a 33-minute communication blackout while the men hiked out of their safe zone to the spot where they would eventually be overcome by the fire. Though the report points to multiple failures, investigators did not consider whether the deaths could have been avoided, raising questions about what lessons firefighters will be able to take from the tragedy. At a news conference in Prescott, where the fallen firefighters lived, Shari Turbyfill implored officials to draw stronger conclusions about why her stepson
Can new Wichita abortion clinic expect to survive? WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — When she arrives at her job every morning, Julie Burkhart enters a bunkerlike building where a pipe bomb once ripped through the walls. She passes a metal detector, an armed guard and a photo of her former boss, who was murdered for the work he did there. Burkhart has reopened the abortion clinic that closed four years earlier after its owner, Dr. George Tiller, was killed by a man claiming he’d acted to save the lives of the unborn. That stunning act of violence left even some abortion rights supporters wondering if it would be just too dangerous to start over. This was, after all, the place where Tiller, vilified by critics for his late-term abortions, sometimes felt compelled to wear a bulletproof vest and drive an armored car to work. This is a city that had become weary of long years of pitched battles over abortion. Burkhart, a Tiller disciple, understood that, but after weighing the arguments with others, she forged ahead, believing that women’s rights and health were at stake. “I don’t feel it was courageous or brave,” she says. “It was just the right thing to do.” There were obstacles along the way. Anti-abortion activists pushed for zoning changes to stop the clinic; they’ve not given up. Doctors had to be recruited from outside Kansas; some
local ones shied away, worried about possible intimidation. Even routine steps — hiring an architect who didn’t fear a boycott — became an ordeal. Burkhart faced her own travails. She watched protesters distribute fliers in her neighborhood, calling her a “homicide promoter” and encouraging her to repent for “mass murder.” She heard Tiller’s killer say in a prison phone call that opening the clinic was “almost like putting a target” on her back. Now, six months after the South Wind Women’s Center opened — even as abortion clinics closed around the nation — there’s a sense of accomplishment for Burkhart and her supporters. But there’s a wariness, too. “Part of me is waiting for the other shoe to drop, whatever that shoe is,” Burkhart says. How this clinic reopened in this staunchly red state is a story that reveals the changing dynamics of the abortion debate around the country: Determined supporters are navigating around — and challenging — new laws. Anti-abortion forces are buoyed by new political clout in statehouses. And both sides are entrenched as ever, fighting the same war they did decades ago. “There definitely is a deep divide,” says Diane Wahto, a clinic volunteer. “I don’t think that’s ever going to end.”
No. 2 US nuke leader suspended WASHINGTON (AP) — The No. 2 officer at the military command in charge of all U.S. nuclear war-fighting forces has been suspended and is under investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service for issues related to gambling, officials said Saturday. The highly unusual action against a high-ranking officer at U.S. Strategic Command was made more than three weeks ago but not publicly announced. Air Force Gen. Robert Kehler, who heads Strategic Command, suspended the deputy commander, Navy Vice Adm. Tim Giardina, from his duties on Sept. 3, according to the command’s top spokeswoman, Navy Capt. Pamela Kunze. Giardina is still assigned to the command but is prohibited from performing duties related to nuclear weapons and other issues requiring a security clearance, she said. Kehler has recommended to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel that Giardina be reassigned, Kunze said.
Giardina has been the deputy commander of Strategic Command since December 2011. He is a career submarine officer and prior to starting his assignment there was the deputy commander and chief of staff at U.S. Pacific Fleet. Two senior U.S. officials familiar with the investigation said it is related to gambling issues. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the probe in incomplete. Strategic Command oversees the military’s nuclear fighter units, including the Navy’s nucleararmed submarines and the Air Force’s nuclear bombers and nuclear land-based missiles. It is located near Omaha, Neb. Kunze said Strategic Command did not announce the Sept. 3 suspension because Giardina remains under investigation and action on Kehler’s recommendation that Giardina be reassigned is pending. The suspension was first reported by the Omaha World-Herald.
and his comrades died, and recommend immediate changes. “Your protection of us is killing us,” she said. “We’re willing to take the heat right now, but I don’t want another family to deal with this.” Her husband, David, said the command center should never have lost track of his 27-year-old son, Travis. “You have to look at communications and GPS devices,” he said. The report, produced by a team of local, state and federal fire experts, provides the first minute-to-minute account of the fatal afternoon. The day went according to routine in the boulderstrewn mountains until the wind shifted around 4 p.m., pushing a wall of fire that had been receding from the firefighters all day back toward them.

IRAN: Backers cheer, call Rouhani ‘lord of peace’ BUDGET: Sen. Cruz face of ‘Defund Obamacare’ FROM PAGE A1
FROM PAGE A1
calling for “heroic flexibility” in diplomacy — while giving the Guard a rare scolding to keep its distance from political developments. As long as Rouhani carries Khamenei’s favor, there is unprecedented credibility to his offers to settle the impasse over Iran’s nuclear ambitions and possibly forge ahead on other fronts after a more than three-decade diplomatic estrangement with the U.S. But Khamenei also is not interested in tearing apart the country. Strong objections from the Guard and other hard-line factions would certainly get his attention. Even a slight roll back in Khamenei’s backing for Rouhani would be magnified on the world stage, raising doubts in the West about whether it’s worth investing the diplomatic capital in mending ties with Iran. Guard commanders had warned Rouhani last week that the time was not right for a possible photo-op hand shake with Obama at the United Nations. Now, the Guard has to absorb the ramifications of Rouhani’s surprise 15-minute telephone call with Obama on Friday, the first direct conversation between an Iranian president and the Oval Office since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. How the commanders respond will be a
for letting the government open for business normally on Tuesday. “Obamacare is based on a limitless government, bureaucratic arrogance and a disregard of a will of the people,” said Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind. Another Republican, Rep. Darrell Issa of California, reacted angrily when asked whether he would eventually support a standalone spending bill if needed to prevent a shutdown. “How dare you presume a failure? How dare you? How dare you?” he said. Apart from its impact on the health care law, the legislation that House Republicans decided to back would assure routine funding for government agencies through Dec. 15. A companion measure headed for approval assures U.S. troops are paid in the event of a shutdown. The government spending measure marked something of a reduction in demands by House Republicans, who passed legislation several days ago that would permanently strip the health care law of money while providing funding for the government. It also contained significant concessions from a party that long has criticized the health care law for imposing numerous government mandates on industry, in some cases far exceeding what Republicans have been willing to support in the past. Acknowledging as much, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., said that as a conservative he had often found during Obama’s presidency that his choice was “between something bad or (something) horrible.” GOP aides said that under the legislation headed toward a vote, most portions

telling signal of whether they will try to resist Rouhani or let events play out — at least until the next round of nuclear talks between Iran and world powers, scheduled in Geneva for Oct. 15-16. Even hard-liners are offering mixed signals. Alaeddin Boroujerdi, who heads the parliament’s foreign policy and national security committee, said the telephone talk was a sign that Washington recognized Iran’s might. But the ultraconservative rajanews. com news website described the U.S. as an unshakable foe and dismissed Rouhani’s talk
with Obama as a “strange and useless step.” The Revolutionary Guard may often appear as the stewards of Iran’s enmity toward the “Great Satan” America, but it is not without its deft touches as well. The Guard is something of the Pentagon, CIA and Wall Street rolled into one. Its reach extends deep into Iran’s economy through investment arms and front companies. These, too, have suffered under Western sanctions, which have included black-listing Iran from international banking systems.
EDUCATION: Academy enrollment is near 1,200 FROM PAGE A1
Freedom Academy also works closely with WorkOne and the Indiana Development Corp. The academy does not offer financial aid, Hadley said, but instead offers tuition assistance through a Dekko Foundation operating grant. The academy averages an enrollment of 1,200 students ages 18-70. “A majority of our students come from Noble County. We’ve done a lot of training in Steuben and some in DeKalb,” Hadley said. To meet skilled-trade demands, officials from both schools travel to businesses to offer specialized training. IMPACT offers adult basic and secondary education programs, literacy, English as a second language, general education development preparation, secondary credit and academic upgrading. Stephanie Ross, IMPACT’s adult education coordinator, said the school is offering 10-week classes that are free through WorkOne in welding, CNC
and CNA with certifications offered with a focus in securing employment. “We’re aware four years isn’t a path for everyone,” Ross said. Ross said perhaps the biggest career field in demand right now is welding. She is being approached by businesses looking for welders. IMPACT’s website says adult secondary credits are geared toward students who left high school with six or fewer credits to complete before graduation. Such classes are offered in Auburn, Garrett, LaGrange, Kendallville and Columbia City. Indiana University– Purdue University Fort Wayne, Ivy Tech and Indiana Tech have partnered with IMPACT in offering various courses. Last year, IMPACT served 229 students in Noble County, 198 in LaGrange County, 175 in DeKalb County and 85 in Steuben County. “What we do is listen and work with WorkOne. They give us a picture of what to
offer,” Ross said. Students at IMPACT range between the ages of 16-81. “All our classes are free,” she said. “We get state and federal reimbursement.” Both schools always look for new ways of offering education in meeting skill demands. “Right now, I’m looking for supervisory. There’s a real need,” Hadley said. “We have a new program starting — clinical medical assisting — that is more hands-on.” According to The Atlantic, the top 10 most promising jobs for the next 10 years are: personal financial advisor, dental hygienist, civil engineer, market research analyst, computer system analyst, physicians and surgeons, computer application software engineer, management analyst, accountants and registered nurses.

by his mother Theresa, “who always wanted to be a writer, and dedicated to all of our comrades in arms.” When greeting this friendly, outgoing veteran, one doesn’t know whether to salute or shake his hand. “Hi Laddie,” he said with a big smile to a stranger offering his hand. Galbraith is like a lot of World War II veterans when asked about their experiences. He’s humble, but enjoys bantering and telling jokes like he was among his buddies stoking the boilers on a warship patrolling the Pacific Ocean. Galbraith’s father didn’t mind his son quitting school and joining the war effort. “He went with me to the enlistment office, and was going to enlist himself, but they wouldn’t take him because he had a bad ear. My mother is the one who put up the squawk,” he recalled. When asked why he enlisted in the Navy and not another branch of the military, Galbraith said he liked boats. He laughed when asked if he joined the Navy thinking he would feel safer in a battle on the high seas than on land. After basic training, Galbraith was given the rank of water tender third class and eventually assigned to the 15-man engine room of the U.S.S. Chevalier, a Gearing-class destroyer with a 336-man crew. The “Chevy,” as it was called,
was a new ship designed for patrol and escort duties. It to sea in January 1945. Galbraith’s job in the bowels of the ship was keeping the engines humming. The sailors who worked there were called the “Black Gang” because of oil, grease, grime and smoke residue that often covered them. Now a retired Mobil Oil terminal supervisor, he recalled the time he earned the name “Smokie.” The Chevalier was patrolling off the coast of Japan just before the war ended, and the ship went to rescue crew members. Galbraith was on the burner watch in the forward fire room when the bridge called for double flank speed or full power. This required a large amount of steam from the boilers. More fire was needed to generate the steam. When the steam pressure dropped to critical level, Galbraith called for a shipmate to increase the airflow from the blowers. When he didn’t respond, Galbraith threw oil into the fire that caused black smoke to come out of one of the ship’s smoke stacks. “During war you don’t want thick, black smoke, because it give away your position to the enemy,” said Galbraith. The ship’s captain called down to the engine room to knock off the smoke. When Galbraith went to crew’s quarters after the incident, his shipmates called him
“Smokie.” The Chevalier saw limited action in the closing months of the war in the Pacific. The ship fired on Eniwetok, a small Japaneseheld island, and almost hit a floating mine. “I was on deck about 10 feet from it,” said Galbraith. The ship also patrolled in Tokyo Bay after the war ended. In Tokyo Bay, Galbraith saw Admiral William F. “Bull” Halsey, one of the war’s most famous naval commanders, playing badminton under the 18-inch guns on the deck of the battleship U.S.S. Missouri where the Japanese officially surrendered. Galbraith was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy on June 6, 1946. Over the years the “Chevy’ crew and Galbraith’s “Black Gang” have gotten together for reunions. Their ranks have slowly diminished. Three years ago, Galbraith was one of only three “Black Gang” members to reunite. On the wall next to his favorite chair in his daughter’s house is a framed photo of the U.S.S. Chevalier. On a table next to the chair is a scale model of the ship and Galbraith’s veteran cap. Behind him through a large window, the waters of Round Lake glistened in the afternoon sunshine. Across the room, his wife and daughter smiled as he spoke. “I’ve had a good life,” he said. “I’ve been blessed.”
of the health law that already have gone into effect would remain unchanged. That includes requirements for insurance companies to guarantee coverage for pre-existing conditions and to require children to be covered on their parents’ plans until age 26. It would not change a part of the law that reduces costs for seniors with high prescription drug expenses. One exception would give insurers or others the right not to provide abortion coverage, based on religious or moral objections. The measure would delay implementation of a requirement for all individuals to purchase coverage or face a penalty, and of a separate feature of the law that will create marketplaces where individuals can shop for coverage from private insurers. By repealing the medical device tax, the GOP measure also would raise deficits — an irony for a party that won the House majority in 2010 by pledging to get the nation’s finances under control. The Senate rejected the most recent House-passed anti-shutdown bill on a party-line vote of 54-44 Friday, insisting on a straightforward continuation in government funding without health care-related add-ons. That left the next step up to the House — with time to avert a partial shutdown growing ever shorter. For a moment at least, the revised House proposal papered over a simmering dispute between Speaker John Boehner and the rest of the leadership, and tea party conservatives who have been more militant about abolishing the health law that all Republican
lawmakers oppose. It was unclear whether members of the rank and file had consulted with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has become the face of the “Defund Obamacare” campaign that tea party organizations are promoting and using as a fundraising tool. In debate on the House floor, Republicans adamantly rejected charges that they seek a government shutdown, and said their goal is to spare the nation from the effects of a law they said would cost jobs and reduce the quality of care. The law is an “attack and an assault on the free enterprise and the free economy,” said Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas. Democrats disagreed vociferously. “House Republicans are shutting down the government. They’re doing it intentionally. They’re doing it on purpose,” said Rep. Donna Edwards of Maryland, as Republican lawmakers booed from their seats on the floor. In the Senate, there was little doubt that Reid had the votes to block a one-year delay in the health care program widely known as “Obamacare.” He said the same was true for the repeal of the medical device tax, even though 33 Democrats joined all Senate Republicans in supporting repeal on a nonbinding vote earlier in the year. The 2.3 percent tax, which took effect in January, is imposed on items such as pacemakers and CT scan machines; eyeglasses, contact lenses, hearing aids and other items are exempt. Repealing it would cost the government an estimated $29 billion over the coming decade.
How budget shutdowns could squeeze economy WASHINGTON (AP) — Just as the U.S. economy is struggling to expand at a healthy pace, a pair of political standoffs threatens to slow growth and spook investors. Unless Congress acts before Tuesday to fund federal spending, some of the government would shut down. Separately, the government will run out of money to pay its bills by late October unless Congress raises the federal borrowing cap. A 2011 fight over the borrowing cap rattled consumers, businesses and investors and likely slowed growth. Here are questions and answers about how the two standoffs, now intertwined, could affect the economy and financial markets: Q. What exactly will happen within the next days and weeks? A. The most urgent deadline is for Congress and the White House to agree to keep funding the government after the current budget year ends Monday. Otherwise, some of the government would have to shut down. The House and Senate are considering bills to fund the government past the deadline. But House Republicans want to cut off funding for President Barack Obama’s health care law as a condition of passing the spending measure. Senate Democrats and the White House have balked. Unless one side essentially blinks, a partial shutdown of the government will occur. Q. What would be the effect on the economy if the two sides miss the deadline for passing the spending measure? A. About one-third of the government will shut down. About 800,000 of about 2.1 million federal employees will be sent home without pay. National parks will close. Passports and visas won’t be issued. The Environmental Protection Agency,
NASA and other agencies will close. The military and other agencies involving safety and security would continue to function. These include air traffic controllers, border patrol and law enforcement officers. Social Security, Medicare and veterans’ benefits payments would continue, too. New applicants might not be approved, though. A partial shutdown that lasts no more than a few days wouldn’t likely nick the economy much. But if the shutdown were to persist for two weeks or more, the economy would likely begin to slow, economists say. Extended closures of national parks would hurt hotels, restaurants and other tourism-related businesses. Delays in processing visas for overseas visitors could interrupt trade. And the one-third of the federal workforce that lost pay would cut back on spending, thereby slowing growth. A three-week shutdown would slow the economy’s annual growth rate in the October-December quarter by up to 0.9 percentage point, Goldman Sachs estimates. If so, the growth rate next quarter would be a scant 1.6 percent, compared with the 2.5 percent that many economists now forecast. Q. What about the federal borrowing cap? First of all, what is it? A: It’s a legal limit on how much debt the government can pile up. The government accumulates debt two ways: It borrows money from investors by issuing Treasurys. And it borrows from itself, mostly from Social Security revenue. Q. What if Congress can’t agree to raise the cap in time? A. It could be disastrous. No longer authorized to borrow, the government would have to
pay its bills only out of the revenue it gets from taxes and fees. This would force the government to immediately slash spending by 32 percent, the Bipartisan Policy Center estimates. Most analysts think the government would delay paying each day’s bills until it had accumulated enough money to pay them all. Even worse, the government could miss interest payments on Treasurys, triggering a first-ever default by the U.S. government. U.S. Treasurys are held by banks, governments and individuals worldwide. Ultimately, a prolonged default could lead to a global financial crisis. At the same time, Social Security and other benefit payments would be delayed. Government contractors might not be paid and would likely lay off workers. Paychecks for military personnel could be delayed. The government actually reached its borrowing limit back in May. Since then, the Treasury has taken a variety of measures to avoid exceeding it. But the cash generated by those measures will run out sometime between Oct. 22 and Oct. 31, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates. The date isn’t exact because it isn’t possible to foresee precisely how much revenue the government will receive and when. Q. Will the economy escape harm if both deadlines are met? A. Probably. But even brinksmanship can have consequences. The last major fight over the borrowing cap, in the summer of 2011, wasn’t resolved until hours before the deadline. Even though the deadline was met, Standard & Poor’s issued the first-ever downgrade of long-term U.S. credit.

Drug’s use for death in question
NJ gay battle to continue BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
A judge’s ruling Friday that New Jersey must allow gay couples to marry will not be the last word on the issue after Gov. Chris Christie’s administration said it would appeal to a higher court. The judge, Mary Jacobson, sided with gay and lesbian couples and a gay rights group that argued the state government is violating New Jersey’s constitution by denying federal benefits to the couples by not letting them marry. She said the state must allow gay couples to wed starting Oct. 21. The ruling was the first of its kind in any state court relying on a June U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down key parts of a law that blocked the federal government from granting benefits to gay couples. “Every day that the state does not allow same-sex couples to marry, plaintiffs are being harmed,” Jacobson wrote, citing specifically same-sex couples who include a federal employee, those who want to use the federal Family Medical Leave Act or those who file joint federal tax returns. Whatever course Christie chose had the potential of putting the Republican governor in a tough spot politically. He’s seeking re-election in a state where polls show broad support for gay marriage and where the Legislature passed a law last year to allow it. He’s seen as a possible contender for the Republican nomination for president in 2016 — a position that requires winning over relatively conservative Republican electorates in some states with early primaries.
A man walks through City Creek shopping center in Salt Lake City on Tuesday, Sept. 24. Jack Harry Stiles was arrested Monday, Sept. 23, accused of plotting a deadly attack on the mall in the heart of Salt Lake City, telling investigators he planned to “just randomly shoot and kill people.” It almost feels these days as if there is no safe place — that after global jihad strikes a Nairobi shopping mall or a deranged shooter invades the Washington Navy Yard, the next target could very well be our own store, school, theater or stadium.
Don’t worry about safety BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
It almost feels these days as if there is no safe place — that after global jihad strikes a Nairobi shopping mall or a deranged shooter invades the Washington Navy Yard, the next target could very well be our own store, school, theater or stadium. Yet those who study such violence have a message: Don’t worry. Even though anxiety is a natural response to pervasive and frightening media images of carnage, they say, statistics indicate that most of the world has never been safer. “Vivid images and memories of these images are used to make judgments about the overall likelihood of dangerous events.” says Robert Kraft, a psychology professor at Otterbein
University. In fact, “these horrific events are no more likely today than they were yesterday or 10 years ago.” Says David Schanzer, a Duke University professor who directs the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security: “Since 9/11, you are far more likely to drown in your bathtub than be killed by terrorists in the United States.” Worldwide, as regular bombings persist in a few unstable countries like Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya, the terrorism trend is less clear. The number of annual fatalities has fluctuated over the past few decades, according to figures compiled by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland. Global terrorism deaths
as defined by the consortium reached almost 11,000 in 1984, then dipped before approaching 11,000 again in 1997. Deaths fell once more before rising in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001. There were 3,144 killings in 2003, then 12,761 in 2007. In 2012, after the consortium made its data collection more comprehensive, it counted 15,514 deaths from terrorism — mostly in about 10 countries. The Nairobi attack, by the fanatic Somali Islamic group al-Shabab, stood out. It touched points across the globe, killing at least 60 civilians from countries including Britain, France, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, Peru, India, Ghana, South Africa and China. Five Americans were among the nearly 200 wounded.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The planned use of a common anesthetic in a Missouri execution is raising concerns that the anti-death penalty European Union could limit export of the drug, endangering the supply of a vital medication used every day in thousands of American hospitals and clinics. The execution scheduled for Oct. 23 would be the first to use propofol, which is by far the nation’s most popular anesthetic. About 50 million vials are administered annually in some 15,000 locations. That’s about four-fifths of all anesthetic procedures, according to the American Society of Anesthesiologists. Propofol is popular because it works quickly and patients wake up faster with fewer
side effects such as post-operative nausea. Roughly 85 percent of the U.S. supply of propofol is made in Europe, where capital punishment is outlawed, by the German company Fresenius Kabi. Export is controlled by the European Union, which prohibits trade in goods that could be used for executions. The EU is reviewing whether to subject propofol to that rule. If it is added to the regulation, propofol would be subject to export controls, not a complete ban, EU spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said. Still, any change in export practices could have a drastic effect on propofol’s availability in the U.S., said Matt Kuhn, a spokesman for Fresenius Kabi USA.

BMV goofs up charges SOUTH BEND (AP) â€” Some Indiana drivers will be getting money back the next time they make a transaction at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Three months after the BMV announced it was cutting fees for standard operatorâ€™s licenses in Indiana by $3.50 because of overcharges and announcing two weeks later that it would credit affected driversâ€™ accounts, the BMV announced Friday that it had found more cases where it had overcharged for licenses and said it found other instances where it undercharged. BMV spokesman Josh Gillespie said Friday afternoon that the agency has not determined the total amount overcharged, but says it would range from $1 to $3. He said a complex system of determining fees was to blame. â€œYou can have five to 10 statutes make up the cost of one fee, and the cost of one fee can come to the verbiage in the statute,â€? he said. â€œWeâ€™re hoping to work with the General Assembly and Gov. (Mike) Pence to come up with a system that is much easier and much less confusing.â€?

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â€” Century-old ash trees at the Indiana governorâ€™s residence are being treated with an insecticide to protect them from the emerald ash borer, which has killed thousands of trees across the state. The destructive beetle has been detected about a mile north and west of the governorâ€™s residence, and state officials are taking no chances. The Indiana Department of Administration hired a Massachusetts-based company that developed the TREE-age insecticide system and an Indianapolis company to treat seven trees on the property, The Indianapolis Star reported. The companies did not charge for the service. The treatment involves injecting an insecticide through the bark into the treesâ€™ vascular tissue. The ash borer is native to eastern Russia and Asia. It first appeared in Michigan in 2002 and has killed millions of trees nationally. Much of the northern half of Indiana and isolated spots in the southern half are battling the destructive insect. The damage has been

compounded by drought conditions the past two years. â€œStatewide, 20 to 30 percent of the ash trees are affected,â€? said Phil Marshall, a forest health specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. Joe Aiken of Arborjet says trees canâ€™t be saved if at least 50 percent of the tree is infested.

Voting rules get tighter in South MIAMI (AP) â€” Emboldened by the Supreme Court decision that struck down the heart of the Voting Rights Act, a growing number of Republican-led states are moving aggressively to tighten voting rules. Lawsuits by the Obama administration and voting rights activists say those efforts disproportionately affect minorities. At least five Southern states, no longer required to ask Washingtonâ€™s permission before changing election procedures, are adopting strict voter identification laws or toughening existing requirements. Texas officials are battling the U.S. Justice Department to put in place a voter ID law that a federal court has ruled was discriminatory. In North Carolina, the GOP-controlled Legislature scaled back early voting and ended a pre-registration program for high school students nearing voting age. Nowhere is the debate more heated than in Florida, where the chaotic recount in the disputed 2000 presidential race took place. Florida election officials are set to resume an effort to remove noncitizens from the stateâ€™s voting rolls. A
purge last year ended in embarrassment after hundreds of American citizens, most of whom were black or Hispanic, were asked to prove their citizenship or risk losing their right to vote. Republican leaders across the South say the new measures are needed to prevent voter fraud, even though such crimes are rare. Democrats and civil rights groups say the changes are political attacks aimed at minorities and students â€” voting groups that tend to lean toward Democrats â€” in states with legacies of poll taxes and literacy tests. In North Carolina, for example, a state board of elections survey found that more than 600,000 registered voters did not have a state-issued ID, a requirement to vote under the stateâ€™s new law. Many of those voters are young, black, poor or elderly. â€œWeâ€™re in the middle of the biggest wave of voter suppression since the Voting Rights Act was enacted,â€? said Katherine Culliton-GonzĂĄlez, director of voter protection for the Advancement Project, a Washington-based civil rights group that has undertaken legal challenges in several states.

Sooners down Irish SOUTH BEND (AP) — Blake Bell threw a 54-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard in the fourth quarter and No. 14 Oklahoma jumped to a two-touchdown lead in the opening 3 minutes and beat No. 22 Notre Dame 35-21 on Saturday. It was the Sooners’ second win over the Fighting Irish in 11 meetings. The Sooners had three interceptions that led to TDs, including a 24-yard score by linebacker Corey Nelson. Damien Williams, suspended the previous game against Tulsa for violating team rules, added an 11-yard TD run after an interception by linebacker Frank Shannon as the Sooners went ahead 14-0. Bell threw a 26-yard TD pass to Lacoltan Bester to cap an 88-yard drive after an interception by cornerback Julian Wilson late in the second quarter. The Irish cut the lead to 27-21 in the fourth quarter, but the Sooners answered with Shepard’s TD. The only other victory for Oklahoma (4-0) in the series was a 40-0 win in 1956 that remains the worst home loss for the Irish (3-2). The loss ended a 10-game home winning streak for the Irish and ended its domination of a program that has just one fewer national title than Notre Dame’s eight.
Wolfpack fall in final
ALBION — The Noble County Wolfpack fell short in its quest to claim their first-ever Interstate Football League championship Saturday night. The Indiana Cutters claimed the league championship trophy with a 19-10 win in a defensive battle played at Central Noble High School. This was the third meeting of the season between the two teams, who had emerged as the best in the semi-pro football league. The two squads split their first two meetings, and both of those games were also heavy on defense. The Cutters (8-1), playing out of Bloomington, scored early in the first quarter for a 6-0 lead. Their PAT pass was blocked by the Wolfpack. Noble County (7-2) responded in the second quarter with a 20-yard touchdown run by former West Noble standout Matt Rupright. Brian Clawson kicked the point-after for a 7-6 Wolfpack lead. Late in the second quarter, AP Clawson connected on a 48-yard Oklahoma’s Sterling Shepard (3) runs past Notre Dame’s Jarrett field goal for a 10-6 Noble County Grace (59) for a 54-yard touchdown reception during the second half of an NCAA college football game on Saturday in South Bend. lead at intermission.

AHS earns NECC tourney 3-peat BY KEN FILLMORE firstname.lastname@example.org
LAGRANGE — Regular season champion Fairfield won more position championships than Angola did in the Northeast Corner Conference Boys Tennis Tournament Saturday at Lakeland High School. But the Hornets proved to be deeper in winning their third straight conference tournament. Angola won 56-52 over the Falcons. Westview was third with 42, followed by West Noble (30), Fremont (27), Lakeland (15), Churubusco (10), Central Noble (6) and Prairie Heights (2).
The Hornets were closer to the Falcons’ conference champions than Fairfield was to Angola’s conference champions. Angola lost to Fairfield in all three singles championship matches with Hornets Cameron Hall at No. 1, Chris Calvelage at No. 2 and Blake Trusty at No. 3. In the point distribution formula, the Falcons led 39-30. The Hornets won conference titles in both doubles positions with the very strong duo of senior Markus Arnold and junior Craig Nofziger at No. 1 and the team of first-year varsity senior Cody Nickols and freshman Jake Honer at No. 2. Nickols came

Girls golf season ends BY JAMES FISHER email@example.com
KENDALLVILLE — A week ago East Noble shot a 364 on the way to a sectional championship. The Knights lowered their team score by 15 strokes at Saturday’s IHSAA regional tournament at the Noble Hawk Golf Links, but it wasn’t enough to earn the squad a berth in the state finals. “That’s a pretty good team score for us,” explained East Noble coach Richard Bentz. “We had three girls in the 80s. You can’t complain about that at all.” Penn, the top-ranked team in the state, decimated the field with a 297 — 37 strokes better than second-place NorthWood. “We knew Penn would win,” Bentz said. “But there were at least 10 other teams that were right in the range.” NorthWood fired a 335 team total, while Rochester was at 338. All three teams advance to next weekend’s state finals at The Legends Golf Course in Franklin. Following the lead trio were Warsaw (341), Marion (346) and East Noble (349). Angola shot a 376 and West Noble closed with a 419 in the team’s first regional appearance. “Everyone came together last Saturday at

sectionals,” said Gretchen Martin, in her fourth season as head coach at West Noble. “Today we struggled, the greens are tough, but I’m just glad the girls had the experience of going to regionals. We had a good season, the best since I’ve been here.” Along with the top three teams, also advancing to state were Kayla Adamson of Marion, Lauren Tibbetts of Oak Hill and Sydney Willis of South Adams. Penn had the top two individual finishers: Kari Bellville shot a 71 for medalist honors and Kathryn Willenbrink carded a 72. East Noble was led by an 82 from Alyn
Clark. Following for the Knights were Logan Handshoe (85), Cooper Handshoe (87), Mariah Hernandez (95) and Kacey VanWagner (95). Angola had all five golfers shoot in the 90s, led by Alison Brimmer with a 92. Following for the Hornets were Morgan Dornte (93), Mackenna Kelly (95), Lauren Stanley (96) and Kandi Bach (97). Haley Teel shot a 95 to lead West Noble. Following for the Chargers were Paige Shearer (101), Rachel Stohlman (107), Bailey Kruger (116) and Molly Marsh (121). Fremont senior Alivia Behnfeldt shot a 91 in her first regional.

Angola coach Scott Hottell said his team is starting to rise and play. Canterbury, Culver Academy and Penn last weekend elevated the level of play of his Hornets. “We’re peaking at the right time. I’m really proud of them,” Hottell said. “This championship means a lot because it was not as easy as it has been. We do not have the one outstanding guy at the top of the lineup. It has been a team effort and we’ve been quietly taking care of business. I have 23 awesome young men to work with who keep me young. “Coming in playing good competition helps. Penn handed it to us, but we played two really close matches with Canterbury and Culver Academy. Markus and Craig lost in three sets to Penn, and it was so close it was unreal. One of their guys has been to the state finals before. I’ll take losing to Canterbury, Culver and Penn if it makes us better.” Arnold and Nofziger are 17-1 after winning all three of their NECC tournament matches over Thursday and Saturday. They defeated Westview’s Jamar Weaver and Hunter Christner in the No. 1 doubles championship match 6-1, 6-4. “For them to come off the court quick gives us momentum,” Hottell said. At No. 2 doubles, Nickols and Honer survived and got better from their three-set semifinal win over Fremont’s Jeremy Seiler and Drew Sullivan, 7-5, 5-7, 7-5. The Hornet duo beat Warriors Zach Schrock and Taylor Eash 6-1, 6-1. “Fremont’s two doubles played a great match that helped put us in a position to win,” Hottell said. Westview coach Ryan Yoder felt his team was more competitive than it had been, especially with Angola and Fairfield. That is a plus entering the East Noble Sectional in a few days. Along with the runner-up finishes from both doubles teams, the Warriors had thirds from Kohle Christner at No. 1 singles and Stephen Gierek at No. 3 singles. Gierek beat West Noble’s Josh Gaff 6-3, 6-4 in the third-place match to avenge a loss to Gaff from earlier this season. “Gierek was seeded fourth and finished third. That was the best stuff I’ve seen from him. He played good tennis,” Yoder said. “I think I saw real good things from several spots. We had a great set with Angola’s one doubles. “I’m happy with the effort. We practiced real well this week. Even in the matches we lost, we looked
better,” he added. “We need to play hard and go into the sectional with no fear. We’re a good team. If we can have confidence in that, we can have a good weekend.” The Chargers had a third, two fourths and two fifths. Jacob Musselman and Grant Moser finished third and No. 2 doubles. Logan Miller led Fremont with a third-place finish at No. 2 singles. Lakeland was led by Dalton Schmidt’s fifth-place finish at No. 1 singles. Caleb Harlan was sixth at No. 3 singles for Central Noble. East Noble Invitational In Kendallville, the host Knights were second to Bishop Dwenger, 56-37. DeKalb was fifth with 18 points Bishop Luers was third with 25, followed by Blackhawk Christian with 19. New Haven was sixth with 10, followed by South Bend Riley (8) and Blackford (2). The Saints won championships in every position by No. 2 singles. That was where EN’s Evan Hart won the title. Hart defeated Luers; Erik Woehnker 6-1, 6-1 in the first round, then beat New Haven’s Drew Guise 6-0, 6-1 in the semifinals, and topped Dwenger’s Jacob Maskal in the final 6-2, 6-2. Taking second for the Knights were Aaron Dills at No. 3 singles and the team of Carl Kramer and Jonathan Toles at No. 1 doubles. In finals, Dills lost to BD’s Joseph Veracco 6-4, 6-0, and Kramer and Toles fell to Dwenger’s Bertram Najev and Charlie Scott 6-0, 6-1. “Aaron came out firing and played patiently throughout the day,” East Noble coach Nathan Toles said. “Carl and Jonathan played extremely aggressive all day.” The Knights’ No. 2 doubles team of Adam Albertin and Brennen Biggins finished third. Austin Mohamedali was fifth at No. 1 singles. He battled in losing 6-4, 6-4 in the first round to eventual champion Pat Holly from Bishop Dwenger. DeKalb senior Nate Helmkamp was second at No. 1 singles. He lost to Holly in the championship match 6-1, 6-0. Helmkamp defeated New Haven’s Corbin Yoh 6-1, 6-1 first, then beat Luers’ Isaiah Klotz 5-7, 6-4, 10-7 to get to the final. DeKalb also had Luke Buttermore finish third at No. 2 singles and the team of Zach Martin and Corey Venderly placed fourth at No. 2 doubles. Buttermore beat New Haven’s Guise 6-1, 6-1 in the third-place match at No. 2 singles.
IRISH: Notre Dame rushed for season high of 220 yards against Oklahoma FROM PAGE B1
The Sooners, who managed just 15 yards rushing against the Irish last season, had 19 yards on their first two rushing attempts and finished with 212 yards rushing. Brennan Clay led the Sooners with 77 yards on 14 carries and Blake ran for 59 yards on 12 carries. The game was a stark contrast to last season, when the Irish dominated the lines of scrimmage and amassed 215 yards on the ground. The Sooners frequently went wide on both runs and passes to try to offset Notre Dame’s size inside. The Irish managed to rush for a season-high 220 yards, with George Atkinson running for 148 yards on 14 carries, but it wasn’t enough. Bell, making his second career start, wasn’t as impressive as he was when he passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns in a 51-20 win over Tulsa, but he was good enough to lead the Sooners over the Irish. He was 22 of 30 passing for 232 yards and two touchdowns. He left with what appeared to be a cramp in the third quarter following an 11-yard run.
But backup Trevor Knight, who started the first two games, ran for 30 yards on the next play to help set up a 27-yard field goal by Michael Hunnicutt, who later added a 19-yarder. Bell came back in the fourth quarter to connect with Shepard on the 54-yard pass and 2-point conversion. Tommy Rees struggled for a second straight game. After three straight games of passing for more than 300 yards, he was 9-of-24 passing for a season-low 104 yards. The Irish, who were held to 82 yards rushing against Michigan State, had 88 yards rushing in first quarter against Oklahoma, rushed for a season-high 220 yards, highlighted by an 80-yard TD run by Atkinson on Notre Dame’s first offensive play of the second half to cut the lead to 21-14. Atkinson took the handoff, took advantage of a block and raced up the sideline for the third career TD run of more than 50 yards. The 21 points were the most allowed this season by Oklahoma, which had been giving up just 9 points a game.

Huskies belt Boilermakers Bulldogs beat LSU WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — Jordan Lynch and his teammates were their usual selves on the big stage Saturday. They scored points, they achieved new milestones and, of course, they won on the road. Lynch threw for three touchdowns and ran for another while the Huskies scored on a kickoff return and an interception return, running away from Purdue 55-24 to become first Mid-American Conference team to win two regular-season games over Big Ten foes in the same year. “We consider ourselves a championship team,” Lynch said. “When we go on the road and win these games, it means a lot to the program.” Nobody has been better on the road lately than Lynch & Co. The Huskies (4-0) have won 11 straight road games, 25 of 27 overall, now have back-to-back wins at Purdue and made this one look easy. Northern Illinois tied the MAC record for largest-victory margin over a Big Ten foe, matching the 31-point win Toledo posted over Minnesota in 2001. Lynch, the Heisman Trophy hopeful, made another huge statement in what might have been his final college game against the Big Ten. He went 18 of 25 for 207 yards and ran nine times for 35 yards and another score. Lynch’s numbers might have been even higher had the game been closer or if coach Rod Carey hadn’t pulled Lynch at the start of the fourth quarter. Still, Lynch did enough to become the 26th player in Football Bowl Subdivision

Northern Illinois tight end Tim Semisch pulls in the ball in front of Purdue’s
history to top 4,000 yards passing and 2,000 yards rushing. And Lynch had plenty of help, too. Cameron Stingily, the converted linebacker, rushed 15 times for 72 yards. Eight different receivers caught passes. The defense forced five turnovers and, for once, the Huskies could relax late in the game after opening the season with wins of 30-27 at Iowa, 43-35 at Idaho and 43-39 against Eastern Illinois.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes, including a 25-yarder to Justin Scott-Wesley with 1:47 remaining, and No. 9 Georgia rallied to beat No. 6 LSU 44-41 in a thrilling game between Southeastern Conference powerhouses Saturday. The Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0) completed their openingmonth run through a gauntlet of top-10 teams with a victory that propelled them back into the thick of the national championship race. LSU (4-1, 1-1) got a career-best 372 yards passing from Zach Mettenberger in his return to Athens, and the Tigers went ahead 41-37 on Jeremy Hill’s 8-yard touchdown run with 4:14 to go. No. 3 Clemson 56, Wake Forest 7 In Clemson, S.C., Tajh Boyd became the second Atlantic Coast Conference quarterback to account for 100 career touchdowns, leading the Tigers (4-0, 2-0) to the easy win.

especially out of a defense that was ranked 115th out of 123 in total yards allowed per game and 100th in scoring per game. While they still gave up yards, they didn’t give up many points till the outcome was out of jeopardy. “For an extended period of time, probably,” Carey said when asked if that was Northern Illinois’ best defensive game of the season. “They’ve had glimpses when they played a lot better, but they strung it all together over the long
haul today, really good.” Purdue struggled for another reason — self-inflicted mistakes. In addition to the turnovers, the Boilermakers (1-4, 0-1) had five pre-snap penalties on offense, the defensive coaching staff was called for sideline interference and things were so bad in the first half that new Purdue coach Darrell Hazell yanked the ineffective Rob Henry and replaced his starting quarterback with true freshman Danny Etling.

RENSSELAER — Trine University suffered its first loss of the season Saturday afternoon, falling to NCAA Division II St. Joseph’s 24-21. The Thunder (3-1) moved the ball significantly in the fourth quarter to at least tie. But two turnovers ended those efforts.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Logano wins Nationwide Series race at Dover DOVER, Del. (AP) — Joey Logano took the checkered flag in the Dover International Speedway Nationwide Series race for the fourth straight time. Logano became the first driver to win four straight races at Dover in NASCAR’s second-tier series. He pulled away in the No. 22 Ford down the stretch Saturday and was never seriously challenged for the win on the mile track. Logano’s Ford, however, flunked post-race inspection because both sides off the front were too low. NASCAR will announce penalties later. Logano, who started on the pole and led 106 laps, won for the third time this season. Four drivers have won 11 times in the No. 22 Ford, all with crew chief Jeremy Bullins. Brad Keselowski, AJ Allmendinger and Ryan Blaney have all won in the No. 22. Kyle Larson was second, followed by Kevin Harvick, Brian Vickers and Elliott Sadler. Sam Hornish Jr. was 17th and had his points lead shrinked to four over Austin Dillon with five races left.
Indians open AL wild-card lead over Tampa, Texas MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The playoff scenario for the Cleveland Indians is simple: win Sunday and they are in. The Indians moved into sole possession of the AL wild-card lead on the next-to-last scheduled day of the regular season, beating the Minnesota Twins 5-1 Saturday behind Scott Kazmir’s strong start to extend their winning streak to nine. Seeking their first postseason appearance since 2007, the Indians (91-70) took a one-game lead over Tampa Bay and Texas (both 90-71). Cleveland is assured of at least a tie for the AL wild card. With three teams seeking the two wild cards, Sunday’s results could decide the matter or lead to one or two tiebreaker games at the start of next week. Carlos Santana homered for the Indians, who have won 14 of their last 16. If the three teams are tied after Sunday, Cleveland would host Tampa Bay on Monday afternoon, with the winner advancing to the postseason. The loser would play at Texas on Tuesday afternoon for the second wild card. In the event Sunday ends with a tie for the second wild-card berth, Texas would be home against Tampa Bay in a one-game tiebreaker Monday night. The two wild cards would then meet in a postseason game Wednesday night to determine which advances to the division series.
Pirates beat Reds 8-3 for home-field advantage CINCINNATI (AP) — Neil Walker hit two of Pittsburgh’s six homers — its biggest power surge in six years — and the Pirates clinched home-field advantage for the NL’s wild card playoff game by beating the Cincinnati Reds 8-3 Saturday. Pittsburgh will host the Reds on Tuesday night in the Pirates’ first playoff appearance in 21 years. Pittsburgh went 50-31 at PNC Park, the third-best home record in the NL, and wanted to make that long-awaited playoff return at home. The Reds will go with Johnny Cueto (5-2) in the one-game playoff against left-hander Francisco Liriano (16-8). Mat Latos was on schedule to start for Cincinnati, but manager Dusty Baker said he’s developed a sore arm. The Pirates won five of nine games against the Reds at PNC Park this season. Pittsburgh hit five homers off Bronson Arroyo (14-12), who had never given up that many in a game in his career. Walker homered twice off the right-hander, Andrew McCutchen and Pedro Alvarez also hit solo homers, and Marlon Byrd had a two-run shot that ended Arroyo’s outing in the fifth and made it 6-3.
Tom Lehman takes Champions Tour lead PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Tom Lehman made a 20-foot birdie putt on the final hole at Pebble Beach on Saturday for his second straight 5-under 67 and a one-stroke lead in the Champions Tour’s First Tee Open. Lehman, the seven-time Champions Tour winner and former British Open champion, had a 10-under 134 total after rounds at Del Monte and Pebble Beach. Russ Cochran, the Principal Charity Classic winner in June in Iowa, also shot 67 at Pebble Beach. The left-hander made a 60-foot birdie putt on the par-3 seventh, his 16th hole of the day. Lehman won the 1998 Callaway Invitational, an unofficial multiple-tour event at Pebble Beach. He was second in the PGA Tour’s 2003 AT&T National Pro-Am and tied for sixth in the 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. The defending Charles Schwab Cup champion played as consistently as his scores indicate. He has hit 30 of 36 greens in regulation, the best in the field. Defending champion Kirk Triplett and first-round leader Bernhard Langer were three strokes back at 7 under. Triplett had a 70, and Langer followed his opening 63 with a 74. They also played Pebble Beach, the site of the final round Sunday. Former tournament winner John Cook (68), Doug Garwood (71), Dan Forsman (70), Chien Soon Lu (67) were 6 under, and Fred Couples (71) topped the group at 5 under. Lu moved into contention with three birdies and an eagle on the first four holes.

Attack health care costs bite by bite This year’s abundant crop of apples is good news for the area economy and everyone who enjoys apples. Abundant apples are also good news for health. Last year’s bad growing weather, including a two-month long drought, resulted in a meager crop. This year northeast Indiana orchards have bumper crops — both in quantity and quality. With health care a prime topic of conversation and worry, we can report one positive bit of information. In a small way, we can take a portion of the battle to reduce high health care costs in our own hands — if our hands reach for an apple. There is truth to the old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” The Greeks counseled “let food be thy medicine.” Earlier this month National Public Radio reported that some physicians are writing prescriptions for fresh fruits and PATRICK REDMOND vegetables. Wholesome Wave, a Orchard owner Christine nonprofit that connects low-income Franke reaches to check people with local produce, is led an apple on a tree on her by a chef in New York City who was motivated to make healthful rural LaGrange County food more accessible after his two fruit farm.

One participant said prior to participating in the program, “I never touched vegetables.” She ate lots of junk, “like chips, candy, soda, ice cream.” She’d never eaten a pear or cantaloupe. Data shows participants’ health is improving. Even problems that seem unrelated to diet — such as asthma — have been reduced. Links to information about “prescribing” fruits and vegetables is available online at wholesomewave.org. We encourage people to write their own “Rx” for an apple a day.

Letters • Wreaths honor veterans in national cemeteries To the editor: Did you know there is a program called Wreaths Across America at our national cemeteries? Volunteers all over the state are trying to bring awareness about this program to our residents and places of business. Christmas wreaths will be placed on the veterans’ graves on the second Saturday in December at Marion National Cemetery in Marion, Ind. Recently, Hugh Taylor organized a motorcycle ride and raised funds for this endeavor. Sadly, to date, we still do not have enough funding for all the veterans to receive a fresh, green wreath, which is placed on their graves by volunteers. Please go to the website and learn more about this program. A big thank you to those who have already donated. We are getting the word out. There is no government funding. I learned about this as my beloved husband, Chuck Kuhn, retired Navy veteran, was buried there last year. I placed a wreath on his grave last Christmas and will continue to do so yearly. You honor those veterans who served our country for our freedoms by supporting this cause. Please show your support and
send your check ($15 for one wreath and $30 for three wreaths) directly to Hugh Taylor, attorney, P.O. Box 728, Auburn, IN 46706. AJ Kuhn Auburn
Make Fun Spot part of 4-H Fairgrounds To the editor: As I drove past the run-down Fun Spot Park (which no longer looks like a fun spot) I wondered why the owners don’t donate it to the Steuben County 4-H. I recently read that the current location is getting ready for very expensive renovations in order to make it more user friendly, requiring major excavation and building improvements. Comparing our current park to those of surrounding counties … we are really deficient. I know that the owners of Fun Spot have been very generous to our community and everything that they have done is greatly appreciated. I don’t have any connection to our 4-H at all, but I feel this would benefit so many hard-working people of our wonderful community. Don’t the youth of our community deserve better?

Health care propaganda won’t help Hoosiers NASHVILLE, Ind. — There’s a well-worn saying in politics that “elections have consequences.” In 2008, Barack Obama was elected president. In 2010, eight months after the Affordable Care Act was passed into law and signed by President Obama, Republicans took back the House. They had a shot at winning a Senate majority, except that tea party Republicans in Delaware, Nevada and Colorado nominated kooky candidates who lost races in which the GOP had been overwhelming favorites. The “rubber match” occurred in 2012. Not only did President Obama win reelection despite a tepid economy, but the Democratic Senate majority actually increased to 55-45 after another wave of tea party Republicans — including Indiana’s Richard Mourdock, Todd Akin in Missouri and another safe Republican Senate seat in Maine — went into the Democratic column. U.S. Sens. Dick Lugar and Olympia Snowe were shoved aside or forced out. If Republicans had nominated candidates with the right “temperament,” instead of sidelining incumbents and candidates who weren’t ideologically pure enough, the U.S. Senate could have been 51-49 right now and Obamacare might truly be on the ropes. What we’re seeing in Indiana and nationally is a Republican Party that doesn’t recognize it lost the crucial rubber match. After the 2011 redistricting, hundreds of U.S. House seats were drawn that created safe redoubts for Republican congressmen and women. These districts are whiter than America, more conservative than America and with this creation, these members have little fear of losing a November election. What they do sweat, is being
“primaried.” U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon has been targeted by Club For Growth (just as Lugar was two years ago), and there are potential primary challenges facing freshmen U.S. Reps. Jackie Walorski and Susan Brooks because tea party factions don’t deem them conservative enough. Thus, Indiana has gone from sending “statesmen” to Washington and out into the world, to creating “primary candidates” who are using their offices to fend off party fratricide in May. The conservative Republicans in U.S. House are HOWEY the seeking to defund POLITICAL Obamacare and REPORT some have threatened to shut the government down Brian Howey to do so. U.S. Sen. Dan Coats — as ardent an opponent of Obamacare as anyone — has been saying since last June that President Obama will never allow his signature achievement to be overridden. Neither defunding or repeal have any chance of passing the Senate. To believe otherwise means you live in an alternative universe with rocking horse people and marshmallow pies. As I’ve stated many times before, heading in to 2010, I espoused support for health insurance reform, as the costs were escalating and people like myself — on a so-called “death spiral” with a pre-existing condition — couldn’t get coverage or once attained, coverage was shockingly expensive. Watching the creation
of the ACA was like watching Dr. Frankenstein stitching together his creature. It is hard to understand if you’re not an economist, and even that group is split on whether Obamacare will work. But Congressional Republicans are using their offices like political candidates do during campaigns. They have become fonts of propaganda, declaring that Obamacare has “failed” and is a “train wreck.” This isn’t an effort to help their constituents understand the new law. There has been little effort to “tweak” or even revise troubling segments of the law. Instead, they play to that 10 or 15 percent of their constituents who pose a threat in a May primary. And this extends to other offices. In July, the Indiana Department of Insurance told us that health premiums were going to rise by 72 percent and the average cost would be $570 a month. Gov. Mike Pence used this information in his national Republican radio address in August. But recently U.S. Health and Human Services told us the opposite, that premiums were actually decreasing. An Indianapolis Business Journal story on Sept. 9 revealed that Anthem policyholders would actually see a small decrease. Who is correct? And who has credibility now? I honestly don’t know. I remember watching in similar morbid fascination President George W. Bush pushing through the Medicare Part D legislation — the largest entitlement expansion since the Great Society — prior to his 2004 reelection. Upon implementation, Speaker John Boehner termed it “horrendous” and costs went through the roof.
Neither defunding or repeal have any chance of passing the Senate. To believe otherwise means you live in an alternative universe.
• And then things settled down and Part D is largely seen as a policy success. Not only has Obamacare gone under dramatic changes when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states could choose whether to opt in on Medicaid expansion, but the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services went without a director during much of the implementation period, stonewalled in the Senate. How smart was that? There has been an unprecedented propaganda push by the party which lost the presidency and the U.S. Senate in 2012. Obamacare is not going to be defunded. In January, its implementation will be well underway. And Hoosier consumers are going to need their governor, their state Department of Insurance, and their members of Congress to help them navigate the confusing new laws, which most don’t understand. They don’t need propaganda by frightened primary candidates. They need statesmen and women who will help them thrive in this new world, and as they see things that don’t function, work with the other party to change them.

The pontiff who doesn’t pontificate WASHINGTON — Pope Francis continues to delight and surprise as he pursues his radical pilgrimage across the global psyche — inspiring with his humility while also sending shock waves with his subversive spirit. Yes, make no mistake, this humble man from Argentina who describes himself first as a sinner and prefers simplicity to the opulence afforded by his station is, like Jesus Christ himself, a radical. He washes the feet of the poor while eschewing the ruby papal slippers for his own holy feet. He lives in humble quarters among colleagues rather than in the isolation of the Vatican suites where his predecessors have slept. He immerses himself in humanity while urging a greater pastoral role for the church and a de-emphasis on the harsh judgments of institutional authority. In a world where greed and pride hold hands in the dark, Francis appears like a brilliant apparition of, say it, brother — hope and change. He is a

The hungry need weakest suffer most and those on food before they can hear a lecture the fringes, the elderly and the about nutrition.
More love, less judgment is the seed he is planting, a worthy bumper sticker these days. In a judgmental era that sometimes rivals darker ages, Francis’ words tumble into the human conversation like an uninvited guest. This humble, radiant man doesn’t sprinkle rose petals and platitudes to amuse and beguile. He drops daisy cutters of truth and social justice smack into the punch bowl. Talk about a splash. And all the while, he smiles. But Francis says he doesn’t wish to be known as the smiling “cordial manager of the church” who “comes here and says to you ‘have courage,’” as he recently told a crowd of unemployed workers in Italy. Rather, he wants to be the brave one, the man who reaches deep inside his own well of humanness with all its frailties and limitations and finds the will “to do everything I can as a pastor and a man.” Telling the crowd to “fight for work,” he said the economic system that created the “idol
which is called money” is not a local problem but a “world choice.” In his short time at the Vatican, Francis also has tackled one of the worst scourges on the planet — the explosion in human trafficking, including child labor, forced domestic work and prostitution. Not content to bemoan this sorry state of affairs, he has called on the Vatican to study the problem and, during a conference he has scheduled for November, develop an action plan. In the parlance of the street that Francis seems to know better than most, he walks the walk. It is not his style to, if you’ll pardon the expression, pontificate. His soul may be aimed for heaven, but his heart and feet are firmly planted in the earth. May his roots bear fruit. KATHLEEN PARKER is a syndicated columnist with Tribune Media Services.

The cruel cost of cutting food stamps Earlier this month Republicans in the House of Representatives voted to slash food stamp spending by $39 billion over 10 years. The next day, the Washington Post ran a picture of a job fair in suburban Maryland. The caption reported that “about 1,000 applicants an hour” streamed into the event searching for work. A few days COKIE ROBERTS later, Post columnist Petula STEVEN ROBERTS Dvorak reported that when Wal-Mart opened a hiring center for six new stores in Washington, a line of job-seekers was “snaking down the sidewalk” at daybreak. One of them, 52-year-old Ronald Knight, said he was taking care of his dying mother: “A job is a job and I need a job. All I want is to work, and I’ll take anything.” These stories tell a cruel tale. Republicans say that cutting food stamps would reduce “dependency” and push recipients into the workforce. That’s a noble goal, but right now it’s also an ideological illusion. The official unemployment rate is 7.3 percent, but the real rate is double that. Many frustrated job-seekers have settled for part-time positions or dropped out of the market entirely. Even folks like Knight, who will “take anything,” remain unemployed. The same Republicans who voted to cut food stamps acknowledge the problem when it suits their political purpose. Last June, Speaker John Boehner charged that the “American people are asking, ‘Where are the jobs?’” The Speaker can’t have it both ways. If jobs are that scarce, then food stamps are needed more than ever. One group of Republicans knows that to be true: governors. Under current law, able-bodied adults with no dependents can only receive food stamps for three months over three years. That limit can now be waived in times of economic hardship, and 45 states, including many red ones, have applied for those waivers. But the House bill would eliminate that option. Legislators can afford self-delusion; governors have to take responsibility and deal with reality. The food stamp battle is part of a larger war in Washington, instigated by hardline conservatives determined to shrink the size of government, and one casualty is the spirit of bipartisanship that has long governed food and farm issues. For many decades, agricultural subsidies and feeding programs were combined into one bill, cementing the cooperation of urban and rural legislators. As Bob Dole, a former

Cooperation is not the only casualty. So is compassion.
• Republican leader in the Senate, and Tom Daschle, a former Democratic leader, wrote in the Los Angeles Times recently, “We proudly count ourselves among a series of bipartisan teams of legislators who worked … to address hunger through provisions in the farm bill.” But today, anything that smacks of bipartisanship is poison. That’s why Republican leaders took food stamps out of the farm bill and passed a stand-alone measure. They wanted to thwart any possibility of cross-aisle cooperation. Cooperation is not the only casualty. So is compassion. The Reagan era was marked by a rhetorical war against the poor, a cascade of criticism about “welfare queens” buying beer and steaks on food stamps. The current debate echoes with the same mean-spirited, wrong-headed stereotypes: The poor are shiftless moochers and Democrats want to raise taxes on hard-working Americans to buy the votes of those deadbeats. Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas told the House that slicing food stamps sent a harsh message: “You can no longer sit on your couch … and expect the federal taxpayer to feed you.” Republicans used that line of attack very effectively for many years, winning five of six presidential elections between 1968 and 1988. But it hasn’t worked so well lately. Democrats have won the popular vote in five of the last six elections, and even some conservatives think the assault on food stamps will backfire. Writing for National Review Online, Henry Olsen of the Ethics and Public Policy Center said Republicans lost the White House last year in large part because their candidate “was perceived as not caring about average Americans.” And “taking food away from needy people at a time of a tepid job market” shows that the GOP “has a total tin ear to American politics.” Sure, any public program comes with corruption, but food stamp fraud accounts for one penny out of every dollar. Most Americans who need help are not sitting on their couches waiting for a handout. They’re lining up at dawn, begging for a job and willing to “take anything.” And even when they get a job, they still often struggle to feed their families. They should not go hungry. Not here. Not in America. COKIE ROBERTS AND STEVEN V. ROBERTS are columnists for Newspaper Enterprise Assn. They can be contacted at email@example.com.

High fives to Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller and 39 other attorneys general across the U.S. who are calling on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to place restrictions on the sale of electronic cigarettes. E-cigarettes typically are not covered by state and local smoking laws because they deliver nicotine to the user through a vapor. No federal age restrictions prevent children from obtaining e-cigarettes.

High fives to Purdue University for a new plan to pay students up to $3,000 to encourage study abroad. Fewer than 20 percent of Purdue students participate in international study programs before graduating, and one of university President Mitch Daniels’ new initiatives is to increase that to one-third. “Learning in another country is an educational necessity, and making study abroad a core component of a Purdue education will help students grow, learn and prepare themselves to make an impact in a global economy,” Daniels said. School officials plan to make it easier for students to go abroad by designating approved programs and courses.

over Medicaid because the state does not want to spend more money on Medicaid patients. Therefore, the governor is willing to allow 300,000 Hoosiers to go without medical insurance in order to sustain a fiction. That fiction is that people, especially the poor, can shop for low-priced medical insurance and services. This is preposterous. When medical necessity arises, people will seek whatever help they can. Price is not the issue. But preventative medical attention is very price sensitive, and we cannot expect to find the poor as willing to participate in preventative care as will the well-heeled of the governorâ€™s fantasy. When it comes to health care, we are not dealing with a service comparable to others in the marketplace. Consumers of health care cannot be compared to consumers of auto oil changes. There is a market where one can shop around or even make it a do-it-yourself task. Open-heart surgery is not a do-it-yourself project for a Saturday afternoon. MORTON J.

Square app offers solution for local coffeeshop Business owner says application best for small transactions BY OCTAVIA LEHMAN email@example.com
Jeremiah Otis of Jeremiah’s Brewed Awakenings in Auburn uses Square, a mobile app to transform his iPad into a register.
AUBURN — When Jeremiah Otis decided to open a coffee shop in Auburn, he knew that he would have to change the way he thought about electronic payments. “Everybody is using a debit card for basic transactions,” Otis said. “Credit and debit is a way of life.” He knew he had to accept a credit card for even a small cup of coffee. “I didn’t want to turn people away,”
Otis said about his decision. He used a traditional credit card processing company for about six months, until he did some research and discovered, Square, a mobile app. Square offers a register solution that works on iPhones, iPads and Android devices, and accepts debit and credit cards. Instead of paying processing fees, transaction fees and a monthly fee through a credit card processing company, Otis pays a 2.75 percent flat fee per electronic transaction to Square. He estimates his number one credit card transaction is a small cup of coffee. Before using Square, he lost most of his money on a small cup of coffee. With Square, Otis uses his iPad as the register, and a special Square device
accepts the electronic transactions. Otis said customers enjoy the ease of use when using Square. Guests are able sign up to receive the receipt in the form of a text message or email and the register is designed with ease of use for his employees. Any merchant that uses Square can accept payments from people who carry the Square Wallet app on their iPhone. Otis has several customers who use the app. Otis said using Square is not for everyone, though. His average transactions are less than $10 a customer, and he is able to make a larger profit with the flat transaction rate. He suggests retailers do research before using Square, especially if transactions are more than $100.

National gospel group at Angola Assembly of God PHOTO CONTRIBUTED
Elliott McCoy, Shannon Smith and Jeremie Hudson are Three Bridges.
Let the Lord guide you as he did his son During the worship service Sunday we were singing about Jesus Christ. It was obvious that the singers prayed together before the service because the Holy Spirit was pouring out from their voices. I imagined someone asking me, “Debby, who is Jesus Christ to you?” I answered, “Jesus is the Son of God and Lord GUEST and Savior COLUMN of my Life.” Then I heard, Debby Owen “Arrest her.” They took me to a secret place where I received 40 lashes on my back with a whip that had hooks on it. They said, “Debby, do you still believe?” When I said yes, they told me to pick up a very heavy wooden cross and drag it to the place I was going to be hanged. (Truth is, it occurred to me that I would have died after the first lashing because the shock of the whole experience would have killed me.) Not Jesus, though. That’s why he prayed the entire night before in the Garden of Gethsemane asking his Father to reconsider this whole sacrifice thing. Jesus knew what was coming, but as he said all through the Gospels, “I only do what the Father tells me to do. I only say what he tells me to say.” But this Jesus prayed so fervently, his sweat was like drops of blood. So an angel appeared to him from heaven and strengthened him. Well, just as the Old Testament prophets spoke about the lamb to the slaughter, Jesus Christ was about to be arrested and sacrificed. He wouldn’t be allowed to pass out and die, God would make him suffer every bit of it for our sakes. And in the end he would announce, “It is finished.” Jesus was trying to tell his disciples what was about to happen, but they couldn’t comprehend that

Fortune was a slave who owned a house, had a wife and four children but had no control over the disposition of his body when he died and was never given a dignified burial despite being baptized as an Episcopalian, she said. Fortune was owned by Dr. Preserved Porter on a farm in Waterbury. When Fortune died in 1798, Porter, a bone surgeon, preserved his skeleton by having the bones

boiled to study anatomy at a time when cadavers for medical study were disproportionately taken from slaves, servants and prisoners. One of Porter’s descendants gave the skeleton in 1933 to Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, where it was displayed from the 1940s until 1970. The descendant referred to the slave as “Larry,” and his name was forgotten at the time. A local historical account from 1896 claimed “Larry” slipped on a rock and drowned in the river. Tests
over the years, including a recent exam at Quinnipiac University, found evidence of a neck fracture around the time of death not associated with hanging. The university has not been able to determine the cause of his death. The study by Quinnipiac concluded that Fortune was about 5 feet 5 inches tall and died when he was around 55 years old, said Richard Gonzalez, an assistant professor and forensic anthropologist at Quinnipiac’s school of medicine.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2013
Mom proud Baked apple pudding easy to make to share adoption story 4:50 A.M. My alarm goes off. Daughter Elizabeth is up already, packing her lunch. My husband Joe didn’t have work today so we didn’t have to get up earlier. 5:10 A.M. Elizabeth’s ride is here and she leaves for the factory.
DEAR ABBY: In response to the Aug. 13 letter from the adoptive mom in Indianapolis, we, too, are sometimes questioned about our son. I don’t find it at all offensive, and I encourage her to view it from a different perspective. Just as mothers enjoy telling stories about their pregnancy and delivery, I relish talking about how our son came to be part of our family. I have talked openly about it to strangers in front of my son since he was a toddler. I tell them how amazing it is that a mother could love her child so much that she would be willing to give him to us so he could have a better life than she could offer. By not shying away from the topic, my son has seen that his adoption doesn’t make us uncomfortable, and as a result, it’s something he is comfortable with. Our son is full of confidence because he knows how much joy he has brought to our lives. — REAL PARENT IN COLORADO DEAR REAL PARENT: Thank you for writing. My office was flooded with comments from adoptive parents and adopted children, but not all of them were as positive as yours. “Why do you need to know?” was frequently cited as a way to deflect unwelcome questions about why the biological parents placed the child for adoption, as was, “I’ll forgive you for asking that question if you forgive me for not answering.” Many also prefer to say, “That is my child’s story and he’ll know it and share it when and if he thinks it is appropriate.” My favorite was, “We don’t discuss such intimacies. Have you told your children the details of THEIR conception?” Readers, thank you all for sharing.
DEAR ABBY: When did it become acceptable to ask for a doggie bag after an elegant dinner in a friend’s home? I’m known as an excellent cook. I entertained eight guests in my home last night and served expensive meat, an accompanying salad, vegetables and a great dessert. They wanted the leftovers! I thought if they had the nerve to ask, they were welcome to the goodies. Would you? — HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTEST DEAR HOSTESS: Would I what? Ask for the leftovers or give them? To ask for leftovers in someone’s home is rude, and I wouldn’t do it — although some hosts do offer them to their guests. If you preferred to keep the leftovers for yourself, you should have said no — with a smile, of course.

5:30 A.M. Joe gets up. I told him to sleep in since he has a chance, but he said to him 5:30 is sleeping in. I make some coffee and we relax in our recliners until it’s time to wake the children up. Nights have been cool so we usually close most of the windows at night. These chilly mornings make you think of the winter months ahead. We did have a killing frost already in some areas on Saturday morning. It affected some of my garden. That’s the earliest I can remember having a killing frost since our move to Michigan. 6 A.M. We get the children up to start getting ready for school. Our breakfast is biscuits and gravy. 7 A.M. Bus is here and Benjamin, 14; Loretta, 13; Joseph, 11; Lovina, 9, and Kevin, 8, all leave for school. Susan, 17, and Verena, 15, wash the breakfast dishes.
Joe does the morning chores. The four calves still seem to be doing well so far. No more escapes and calf chases, which we hope stays that way. I clean up the house and sweep the floors.
8:45 A.M. Susan, Verena and I leave to go help sister Emma with her cleaning. Church services will be held there Sunday. Susan and Verena go with Tiger and the wagon. THE pony Susan AMISH thinks Tiger COOK needs more exercise so she decided Lovina to take him. I go with Itty Eicher Bit and the queen-size buggy. The children plan to come off the bus today at Jacob’s so we need more room to come home. The queen-size buggy has only one seat and our surrey buggy has two seats. Itty Bit is a smaller horse so we usually hitch her to the queen since it’s easier pulling. Joe stays home to

money that the owner can make $150,000 to $300,000 a year or more is worth a good deal more. Also, is the seller willing to take paper or a cash deal? A cash deal should be far lower then a paper one. There are companies with good reputations that will evaluate this business for you. If this is a substantial purchase, that is the way to go. DEAR BRUCE: I have acquired stock shares from many jobs throughout my career. I have a total of 40 from one company and various amounts from another company. I have never invested any of them, so I am considering selling them. Do I need to acquire more in order to sell, or can I sell just with the small amount that I have? — L.D., via email DEAR L.D.: This is not
an uncommon situation. You had several jobs and were granted shares. You should gather all of your certificates and take them to one stockbroker. There will be costs involved, unfortunately, but that’s the way life is. Rather than trying to sell them individually, I would give them all to one broker to liquidate. As long as they are listed companies, there should be no problem. Send your questions to: Smart Money, P.O. Box 2095, Elfers, FL 34680. Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Freeze quick breads to enjoy during holiday season Dear Sara: I froze a few loaves of quick bread, and I plan to bake more and freeze them for family gift-giving or to serve guests during the busy holiday season. How long can they be kept frozen and still taste good? — Olivia, Ohio Dear Olivia: I’d eat them within three months of freezing them. It won’t be unsafe after that time period, but the taste and texture starts to decline. You might not mind the taste after three months, but for gift-giving or serving to guests, I wouldn’t freeze too far ahead. I’d aim for freezing no sooner than September for serving during the holiday season. Dear Sara: I bought a 4-pound marinated pork loin roast from Costco and cut it into fourths before freezing. I want to thaw one of the fourths and serve it with roasted potatoes and carrots, but I don’t know how long to cook it. Any guesses? — Valerie, Washington Dear Valerie: It will take approximately 19-22 minutes at 350 degrees F. You can use a slow cooker, too. Slow cook on high for 4 hours. Dear Sara: I have just found a speck of liquid foundation on a pretty cotton blouse that I really
like. I tried Soilove, but it didn’t work. What can I use on this small, stubborn stain? I don’t want to rub the spot too much. Please help! — Rose, email Dear Rose: Try using shaving cream, or use K2r Spotlifter or Gaurdsman/ Afta cleaning fluid (dry-cleaning solvents) per package directions. I’ve had good luck simply using a baby wipe if I catch it immediately after the spill. Dear Sara: In one of FRUGAL your recent LIVING articles, Cookie from Sara Noel Mississippi wrote about melting Fels-Naptha soap in warm water to create a solution that deters wasps, hornets and yellow jackets from building nests. Could you please provide the proportions of said soap and water? — Chris H., email Dear Chris: You can rub the soap on the underside of decks or other exterior surfaces. Or mix a grated bar of Fels-Naptha and 1 quart of hot water. Shake to combine,
then pour into a spray bottle and spray in the areas that you want to deter insects. My experience has been that this mixture works well for soft-bodied insects such as Aphids (Dawn dishwashing liquid and water works just as well), but Cookie mentioned it worked well for wasps. Not having personally tried this firsthand, your results may vary. I suspect Vaseline might work equally well for wasps. You can make wasp traps, too. Cut the neck off of a 2-liter bottle and remove the cap. Flip it upside down (forming a funnel) and insert it into the other part of the bottle. Secure it with tape. Fill the bottle with a little meat, such as ground beef or lunch meat, and add a sweet liquid such as sugar and water, a piece of fruit, apple cider vinegar, sweet soda pop or orange juice. This lures the wasps into the bottle, and they can’t get out. SARA NOEL is the owner of

E-cig use growing rapidly in U.S. Hundreds of millions of Americans have become hooked on tobacco. But what they really got hooked on is nicotine. Cigarettes are simply the dispensing agents. Tobacco kills nearly 450,000 Americans each year. But it does not seem to be the nicotine that is deadly, but the host of noxious, toxic chemicals that travel into the body with the nicotine. So why not simply provide those tobacco addicts with the nicotine they must have, without all those cancercausing chemicals and other nasty toxins? We have seen that nicotine gum works poorly. Lozenges and patches have also had very limited success. While these methods provide nicotine, the problem with them is how to get the spikes in nicotine blood levels that produce the hard-hitting charge the nicotine addict must have. Now we have inhalers that look like cigarettes and are called electronic cigarettes (e-cigs). They produce a high nicotine content vapor that is inhaled and is reported to produce a serious nicotine rush, similar to that produced by inhaling smoke from burning tobacco. E-cigs may look like cigarettes in size and shape,
but they are nonflammable, so you do not smoke them. Instead, you “vape” them, and vaping seems to be catching on. Common components DR. TERRY include a liquid, a GAFF cartridge, an atomizer and a power source. Many electronic cigarettes are composed of streamlined replaceable parts, while disposable devices combine all components into a single product that is discarded when its liquid is depleted. Most portable devices contain a rechargeable battery, which tends to be the largest component of an electronic cigarette. The battery may contain an electronic airflow sensor whereby activation is triggered simply by drawing breath through the device, while other models employ a power button that must be held during operation. An LED light to indicate activation may also be employed. The Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention says their use is growing rapidly. Already about one in five cigarette smokers in the U.S. has tried them, and they are available everywhere. But experts disagree on whether vaping is safe. Previous data from the Food and Drug Administration revealed that one of the ingredients in e-cig vapor is polyethylene glycol, the chemical used for theatrical smoke. It is also an FDA-approved food additive commonly found in deodorants, moisturizers and toothpaste. But that is not the only chemical found in e-cigs. The FDA says that analyses of at least two brands of e-cigs revealed detectible levels of known carcinogens and toxic chemicals, such as diethylene glycol, an ingredient in antifreeze, as well as small amounts of tobacco-specific nitrosamines. A study reported in Tobacco Control magazine analyzed vapors from a dozen brands and also found some toxic substances. However, they were at levels nine to 450 times lower than in regular cigarette smoke, implying that vaping may be safer than smoking. In one study, 31 percent
Canada, Israel and Mexico have banned electronic cigarettes. But the U.S. has not put in place any signiﬁcant regulation. Soon, we will be looking to the FDA to propose some regulations regarding advertising, ingredients and sale to minors.” Dr. Terry Gaff
• of users had stopped smoking six months after beginning use of electronic cigarettes and a further two-thirds had reduced their tobacco consumption. However, the CDC says it is not yet clear whether e-cigs really help people quit and/or decrease their smoking. Liquid for producing vapor in electronic cigarettes, commonly known as e-juice or e-liquid, is a solution of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin and/or polyethylene glycol mixed with concentrated flavors, and optionally, a variable concentration of nicotine. They can have various tobacco, fruit and other flavors, and even come in nicotine-free versions. The use of ads, appealing packages and flavoring creates some concern that
electronic cigarettes could entice young people to try them, who would then get hooked on the nicotine. In fact, the British Advertising Standards Authority has banned three advertisements for e-cigarettes for failing to make clear that the products contain nicotine. Among middle and high school age students in the U.S., those who have ever used the product increased from 3.3 percent in 2011 to 6.8 percent (1.8 million children) in 2012. Ten percent of students who have used e-cigs had never smoked tobacco. However, a 2013 British survey by Action on Smoking and Health found that among non-smokers under 18, one percent reported having tried e-cigarettes “once or twice,” but zero percent reported
continuing use, and zero percent intended to try them in the future. Several e-cigarette models are available including V2 Cigs, South Beach Smoke, Green Smoke, Bull Smoke and Halo. Blu cigs, a prominent e-cigarette producer, was acquired by Lorillard Inc., a tobacco industry leader, in 2012. So tobacco companies recognize this market arena as a potential moneymaker. Some countries, including Australia, Canada, Israel and Mexico, have banned electronic cigarettes. But the U.S. has not put in place any significant regulation. Soon, we will be looking to the FDA to propose some regulations regarding advertising, ingredients and sale to minors. As the price comes down, expect to see more e-cigs. I propose that we call the people who become hooked on these products, “Vape Apes.” But I doubt that the nickname will catch on. DR. TERRY GAFF is a physician in northeast Indiana.

Online orders replace mom’s college care packages NEW YORK (AP) — In the decade Sarah Tetley has worked with college students, she’s seen a change in care packages sent from home. The box of homemade goodies “is something of a lost art,” says Tetley, director of the First Year Experience program at Webster University in St. Louis. “And it’s sad, because there’s nothing like seeing a student get excited about a package from home.”
The change is partly because parents are more in touch with kids, thanks to cell phones, than they used to be: “They don’t send as many care packages because they just talked to them,” Tetley said. But it’s also due to a rise in commercially prepared options — not just generic gift baskets, but care packages designed specifically for college kids. And those parents who do pack
their own care packages are apt to skip homemade brownies in favor of laundry pods, and get their “ty” via text. GourmetGiftBaskets. com “started to see a trend emerge a few years ago” with more orders sent to campus addresses, according to spokesman Chuck Casto. So the New Hampshire-based company introduced products like the “Exam Cram Care Package,” which includes
Children with autism practice travel at NYC’s JFK NEW YORK (AP) — Tom and Zsuzsa Price arrived at Kennedy International Airport, their four young children in tow, full of anxiety. Four-year-old Callum has autism and the whole family had never been on a plane together. They checked in, went through airport security and boarded JetBlue Flight 001, with sandy-haired Callum at times whimpering, yelling and fidgeting. This time, though, it was just practice. JetBlue Airways and the nonprofit Autism Speaks set up an air travel practice session for families who have children with the disorder. JetBlue officials said it was the first such event at JFK, one of the nation’s busiest airports. “We had no idea what to expect, we didn’t know whether we’d have to turn around and go home,” said Zsuzsa Price, of Bayshore, N.Y. “We’re grateful to have the chance to try it out.” Autism spectrum disorders are a group of developmental disabilities that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges and now affects one in 88 children, according to Autism Speaks, which offers support and aims to raise awareness of the disorder. JetBlue officials said they wanted to teach their employees tools to help make travel comfortable for people with autism — who represent a growing number of customers. “The more tools we supply to our crew members, the better we can serve our customers,” said JetBlue spokeswoman Kate Wetzel. JetBlue workers volunteered their time, and the airline absorbed the cost of using the plane for the afternoon. About 300 parents and children attended. The Airbus 320 departed the

gate and taxied around the tarmac for 20 minutes before returning. Parents said they appreciated the ability to practice with their children, who ranged on the spectrum from mild to severe and in age from toddler to adult. “They should do this at all airports, it’s awesome,” said Ryan Young of Brooklyn, sitting next to his 8-year-old daughter, Rachel, who quietly read “Diary of Wimpy Kid.” “Having a situation where they can get to experience what it’s like, it makes it so much easier, for them and for us,” Young said. Many of the children had never been on a plane before. Parents were anxious about tantrums sparked by the pilot’s request to turn off electronic devices. Some kids wept, others laughed and some slept during the brief taxi. Many shied away from agents touching them. One boy opened the emergency exit door twice in the gate area, setting off a blaring alarm, triggering more tears. Another girl made it down the boarding bridge but refused,
screaming, to get onboard. “I’m really glad we had this experience because I know he’s not quite ready for the real thing yet,” said Shantrise Keller, whose 2-year-old son Trevor is being evaluated for the disorder. Twelve-year-old Nicholas Giangregorio doesn’t speak and doesn’t like to walk, so his parents Michael and Alison practiced walking down the boarding bridge. He walked slowly, his hands over his ears. The couple travels once a year and calls ahead, reserving the bulkhead seats and asking for priority boarding. The only problem with the practice run, some parents said, is that people were too nice. Fellow passengers — and workers — aren’t often so supportive during real travel. “This was just great. We are so grateful, but in reality it is not going to be this easy,” said Cathy Russo of Brooklyn. In line, her 6-yearold, Anthony, had buried his head in her stomach, covering his ears, but fell asleep on board.
microwave popcorn, cookies, candy, chips and pretzels. They’ve sold thousands of them, with sales up 75 percent this year over last. Many colleges also offer in-house care package programs. At Connecticut College, parents can order the $35 “Birthday Bash,” with a cake or cupcakes, or “Health Nut,” with fresh fruit, rice cakes and yogurt smoothies, $25. The packages are made in a dining hall for same-day
pickup. Minimus.biz also offers a “College Student Care Package of the Month,” with themed packages like the Dorm Laundry Kit and the Dorm Medicine Chest. Andy Fortson, 27, co-founded CoedSupply. com after looking online for something to send to a brother in the Marines and a cousin at Penn State. “I was pretty appalled by the options,” he said. “They were
overpriced and full of junk food.” So he and a friend launched a hipper alternative last year with a monthly mix of health-food snacks, personal care items (like Old Spice or a new fragrance from Rihanna) and entertainment (such as CDs), ranging in price from $16.50 to $35 a month. “The response has been overwhelming,” Fortson said. “We’re already shipping to colleges in 45 states.”

Today his house is recognized as the oldest Native American dwelling in the Midwest and the first Greek Revival style house in northeast Indiana. Born in 1761, Richardville was the son of a French fur trader father and a Miami Indian mother - Tacamwa, sister to the Miami war chief Little Turtle. Richardville and his mother were among the earliest entrepreneurs native to the Fort Wayne and Allen County area. Together they built a trading empire based on control of the ‘long portage’ between the St. Mary’s and Wabash rivers, joining two water systems and thereby completing a pathway for commerce that extended from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.

Spectacular ‘Don Jon’ takes hard look at relationships Last summer, I could see that Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s star was rising. He was the star of three movies (“Looper,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Premium Rush”), all of which I enjoyed immensely. But Gordon-Levitt has taken his career to a new height as not only the star, but also the writer and director of the spectacular “Don Jon.” “Don Jon” follows Jon (GordonLevitt), a young New JENNY Jersey man who lists KOBIELA- Internet pornogMONDOR raphy among the most important things in his life. It’s not that he’s not successful with women — he is the king of one-night stands — but he doesn’t find those AP nearly as satisfying as the This film image released by Relativity and Scarlett Johansson in a scene from dirty movies he watches Media shows Joseph Gordon-Levitt, left, “Don Jon”. later on the Internet. This causes major problems and comes across clunkier Jenny’s Take: See it when he attempts to woo the Gordon-Levitt does such than it should.

Jon is addicted to pornography and unable to truly be intimate with anybody because of the steady diet of artificiality he gets from his videos. But he’s definitely not the only one with issues. From the first moment they meet, Barbara knows exactly how to use her body, her feminine charms and Jon’s desires to manipulate him into being the person she wanted him to be. And it’s no wonder, when Hardees commercials featuring a woman in a bikini suggestively eating a sandwich are playing in the background at family dinners. Meanwhile, Jon’s dad (Tony Danza) is giving him a wink and a nudge as he checks out Barbara’s backside, while Jon’s mom (Glenne Headly) practically begs him to give her grandchildren. The pressure from all sides is amazing when it’s laid out like it is in this movie. When it’s paired with Jon and Barbara’s unrealistic expectations of each other, it’s no wonder that they can’t have a healthy, functional relationship to save their lives. Gordon-Levitt really lays out the message in “Don Jon,” and he’s not afraid to take an unblinking and, often, shocking look at the false, damaging way that sexuality is portrayed. There are a lot of clips of X-rated videos scattered throughout the movie, but it’s far from titillating. Instead, the dozens of clips show just how desperately Jon is searching for a real connection, and how horribly wrong he’s going about it. The clips also build throughout the movie, offering a great contrast when Jon finally begins to take tentative steps toward building a deeper, more intimate relationship with someone. “Don Jon” leaves the audience with a lot to think about it, but it is also an entertaining, funny and romantic movie. The characters feel like real people, and despite the fact that many of them are deeply flawed, there is something incredibly endearing about them. Jon, the main character, is a little skeezy during most of the movie, but

Faro, Portugal, from old town to scenic beaches FARO, Portugal (AP) — Nestled on the southern coast of Portugal, Faro is the heart of the country’s Algarve region, where cerulean waters and mouthwatering cuisine rival those of the French Riviera or Italy’s Amalfi coast. But unlike some beach towns that are all sun and no soul, Faro is more than postcard-perfect views. There are charming walkways, a walled historic town and pristine islands. Here are some tips for experiencing what the city has to offer.
History and art Enter Faro’s walled old town through the neoclassical arch of the Arco da Vila and traipse through cobblestoned streets, towering stone facades and the curved arches, some of which date to 13th century Moorish rule. From the Largo da Se, a square lined with orange trees and surrounded by an 18th-century Bishop’s Palace, there’s easy access to a 19th-century Town Hall and a cathedral. Ascend the tower for great views of the town, the Ria Formosa lagoons, and the trail of shrubs and flowers that crown the top edges of these historic walls. Seek inspiration for your own walls at the Faro Municipal Museum, Trem Gallery and other artistic haunts sprinkled throughout the old town, or at a number of shops, where iconic Portuguese tiles,
with intricate blue designs painted onto porcelain white backgrounds, start at 5 euros apiece. Outside the old city, a network of walkways without a car in sight provides a pleasant stroll through the litany of boutiques and restaurants. Sample local fare at the always bustling Pasterlaria Bijou, 33 Rua Santo Antonio, a popular café that offers regional delicacies like Florentinas, caramelized almond layers, and marzipan in twee shapes filled with sweet egg yolk. Walkways in and around this area are practically works of art, with black and white stones arranged in intricate patterns that form borders, shapes (such as fish and sea horses), building names, and important dates in the city’s history. Not to be missed but also not for the faint of the heart, the walls of the Capela do Ossos (Chapel of Bones) inside the Carmo Church are lined with skulls and human remains (1 euro; open weekdays). For modern versions of grit, scope out the impressively detailed graffiti murals, which range from political to flat-out funny and swath walls around town. Not even trains are spared from the spray painter’s mark, turning the transportation system into rainbow-hued blur as they chug along the tracks hugging the coastline. In summer, locals gather by the marina to watch free

performances by beautifully costumed folk groups of traditional song and dance.
Beyond city limits Approximately 4 miles (6.5 kilometers) from the city center lies Praia de Faro, an easy bus ride (1.70 euros) away and the only beach in town that’s accessible by road. The beach is a spit of sand on the Ilha de Faro (Faro Island), with one side facing outward into the ocean and the other inland toward the lagoon. But the most breathtaking scenery can be found on Ilha Deserta—ilha-deserta. com — an island that is well-worth the half-hour boat ride. Round-trip ferry service is 10 euros, while longer guided tours of the island and surrounding lagoon go for 25 euros.
Visitors flock to the Angel Oak on Johns Island near Charleston, S.C., on Friday, Sept. 20. The tree, a landmark in the South Carolina Lowcountry, is thought to be as many as 500 years old.
Charming Southern cities: Savannah and Charleston SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — In “Gone With the Wind,” Scarlett O’Hara, comparing Savannah and Charleston to the much younger city of Atlanta, called the older locales “aged grandmothers fanning themselves placidly in the sun.” Today the two waterfront cities are among the South’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting millions of visitors annually with their history, restaurants and streetscapes. Savannah, the oldest city in Georgia, was established in 1733, and Charleston, the oldest city in South Carolina, was founded in 1670. They’re located about 100 miles (160 kilometers) apart, so it’s easy to visit both on one trip. Savannah is a walkable city, from the waterfront on the Savannah River to the spacious downtown and historic district. Its streets are made from cobblestone and tabby (ground oyster shells, lime, and sand, mixed with salt water), and it’s known for a series of picturesque, park-like squares, lined with live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss. The 22 squares include Oglethorpe Square, named for the founder of Georgia, James Oglethorpe, who laid out the city plan for the squares; Pulaski Square, for the Polish general of the Revolutionary War; and Lafayette, for the Marquis de Lafayette, French hero of the American Revolutionary War. Telfair Square, named for a prominent family whose roots stretched back to Colonial times, is home to two of the city’s most important museums: the Telfair Academy, an 1819 mansion that became a museum in the 1880s, and the contemporary Jepson Center, designed by the noted architect Moshe Safdie. The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), which has made the city its home since 1979, has restored or renovated dozens of old buildings around the city, many of which are now used as dorms and classrooms. Some student housing adjoins the squares; you can tell by all the bicycles parked in front. At City Market is a statue of favorite son Johnny Mercer, songwriter of “Moon River,” ”Days of Wine and Roses” and “In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening,” among many others, who was born in Savannah. You can also tour the family home, now the Mercer Williams House Museum. Its later occupants included Jim Williams, whose trial for murder was the focus of John Berendt’s 1994 book, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.” Mercer and Savannah-born poet Conrad Aiken are buried in Bonaventure Cemetery, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) outside of

town in a beautiful setting alongside the Wilmington River. The cemetery, known for its spooky but romantic statues, memorials and more of those live oaks draping gravesites with Spanish moss, was also featured in “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.” The book’s famous cover image showed the cemetery’s hauntingly lovely “Bird Girl” statue, resulting in so much attention that “Bird Girl” was moved to the Telfair Academy. When you’re done with Savannah’s squares, Southern Gothic ambience and ghost stories, head through the tidal flats of the South Carolina lowcountry to Charleston, about a two-hour drive away. The city was voted the top tourist destination in the U.S. two years in a row by readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine. Old-fashioned horse carriage tours offer overviews of Charleston’s architecture and history, and many historic homes and nearby plantations also offer tours. Middleton Plantation is known for its landscaped gardens as well. The City Market complex, a National Historic Landmark, is one of the city’s top attractions. Its open-air market buildings date to the early 1800s, but were given a $5.5 million facelift that was completed in 2011. The 150 vendors sell everything from tourist T-shirts to sweetgrass baskets, handwoven onsite.

Settling estates presents hard choices Grandmother has passed away leaving behind a house filled with art, antiques and collectibles. You and your family members have varied feelings about the objects that have been left behind. Some of your relatives want to divvy up everything. Others want to just bring in a reseller. Some family members are ready to trash it all and get the project done. And, others still are ready to give away unwanted objects. Some family members can’t even deal with the objects as tears flow at just the sight of Grandma’s quilts or her wash bowl set.
What should you do? Arrange a family caucus at a location other than Grandma’s home. Give everyone a turn to express their feelings about what should happen with the objects left behind. Everyone needs to keep an open mind — not necessarily an open mouth — about the personal property. The person in your family who keeps saying that everything is worthless old junk and that the best thing to do is to trash everything is the person throwing away your money, throwing away your inheritance. Let them have their say and while some items will not be worth a king’s ransom, the trash option is usually the one that people regret in the long run.
Remind yourself to ask that person to consider how he would feel once a really valuable item (typically something worth thousands of dollars) is left sitting in the dumpster outside your late grandmother’s house. How would he feel when a nosy neighbor, local trash man or antique reseller stops by to just take that valuable piece of old junk for himself? Often, a dumpster is the original location of many items that you will later find for sale at sky high prices at some of the most prestiauction houses ART & gious and trendy antique ANTIQUES dealerships. Recently, an antique chair was on a deceased neighbor’s Dr. Lori trash pile and sold by the guy next door for $198,000. Better yet, there was an abstract painting found in a garbage heap on a curb in New York City that was taken home by a jogger passing by who later sold it for more than $1 million. So, without an unbiased appraisal and review of the current market for your late grandmother’s stuff, this dumpster-happy
Seniors, protect yourself

family member is just helping your entire family lose lots of money. Get an unbiased appraisal first. Another tip to remember is that often seniors will sell items to strangers without their family members even knowing it. This is a dangerous practice for many reasons. Family members are, 100 percent of the time, very upset that they didn’t have the opportunity to buy the antique from their grandparents first. Rarely does Grandma receive the true value of antiques when selling in this manner.
And, my message to seniors and families with loved ones who may need the money from objects to pay for long term care and other expenses is learn the value of your antiques before you make decisions. These objects play a vital role in paying for skyrocketing health care costs. Don’t make a hasty decision. One more warning, seniors who live alone and consider selling antiques from their house may open themselves up to possible physical danger. I have met seniors who have invited someone they thought was “reputable” to come over to their home to give them prices on antiques. I have heard of more than one occasion when these seniors have been mistreated, frightened and even physically beat up in their own home when they didn’t agree to that buyer’s price. The best solution is open communication with all of your family members and an action plan for the appraisal of Grandma’s antiques. DR. LORI VERDERAME (“Dr. Lori”), a Ph.D. antiques appraiser, author, and award-winning TV personality, presents antique appraisal events nationwide. Dr. Lori is the star appraiser on the hit TV show, Auction Kings on Discovery channel. For information about your antiques, visit DrLoriV.com, Facebook. com/DoctorLori or call 888-431-1010.

Eek! What to do when there’s a mouse in the house THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Maybe you hear a rustling in your dog’s food dish. Or spot droppings in the cabinet under the sink. Or come face to face with a mouse itself. Besides the yuck factor, mice in the home pose a health risk, said Stuart Nichol of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We strongly encourage people at this time (of year) to rodent-proof their houses and try to prevent the rodents from coming in in the first place,” said Nichol, chief of the CDC’s Viral Special Pathogens branch. As the weather turns colder, mice are “looking for a little bit of warmth” and a way to get inside, said Missy Henriksen, spokeswoman for the National Pest Management Association. All they need is the smallest of holes, as small as a coin, to gain entry. So a first step in pest management is inspecting your home for possible entry points.
In this Sept. 4 photo, PestNow technician Shane Flanagan sets mouse traps and bait stations on the deck of a home in Rockville, Md. There’s a health risk to having mice in the home, so be proactive, says Stuart Nichol of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

the electricity or cable wires go into the house? Is there shrubbery close to the house or ivy around the foundation and up the outside walls that mice can use to hide or climb?
“The most effective means of pest control is controlling the problem before it becomes a problem,” Henriksen said. Pest control technician Shane Flanagan usually starts with a visual inspection of the property to try to see where mice are getting in and where they might be nesting. He’ll look in the kitchen and unfinished areas of the basement and attics. “All that insulation is perfect nesting for mice and (other) rodents,” said Flanagan, who works for PestNow, based in Sterling, Va. Then he sets traps. Placement is key: Mice run along walls. “If you put them in areas where they’re running, you’ll catch them,” said Flanagan. For do-it-yourselfers, there are many kinds of traps available. There are the “old-school snap traps,” as Flanagan calls them; peanut butter works as an effective bait. For the more squeamish, there are snap traps in a
plastic housing, so you don’t actually see the mouse when it’s caught. You can also purchase electronic traps and glue traps. Flanagan uses snap traps. When he returns to check them, “That gives me more of an idea of the population, how many we might have.” After removing any dead mice from the traps, he’ll set up bait stations inside and out to try to prevent further infestations. He’ll also try to seal up areas where he thinks mice are getting in and around the house. That might include putting copper mesh along the dishwasher line, a frequent way that mice get into the kitchen. And he’ll recommend that homeowners remove shrubbery or ivy close to the foundation, pulling it back at least 15 feet from the structure. The CDC also recommends picking up pet food and water bowls overnight, using thick plastic or metal containers to store
grains and pet food, and placing bird feeders some distance from the house. “Pest control is based on science, not magic; remove the conducive condition, reduce the population and maintain it,” Flanagan said. Many pest control experts recommend against starting with bait stations. Dead, decaying mice can leave an odor, so it’s important to know where they are so you can get rid of them. Mice left unchecked can cause problems by chewing on electrical wiring and insulation. In addition, the CDC says mice and rats spread more than 35 different diseases globally. Nichol said hantavirus pulmonary syndrome and lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV), two viruses carried by mice, are associated with “particularly severe diseases.” LCMV poses a particular risk to pregnant women because it can cause congenital defects in the fetus, he said.
Attention to detail makes a roof superior Q. I’m considering putting a new roof on my house and have looked at roof shingles, but my neighbor, a few houses down, installed a metal roof. I had both types of roof quoted by contractors but they gave me different pros and cons. Who should I believe? Thomas living outside of Orland A. Well, they were both telling you the truth and both have their pros and cons. Most houses have a typical asphalt roofing material. Several years ago we had single layer asphalt roofing with seams, or a shingle layered up the roof. More recent is the laminated shingle or architectural shingle that is commonplace today. Metal roofing has been around forever. Years ago metal roofs such as standing seam roofs were popular,
before the technologies of asphalt and fiberglass shingle developed. The metal was available and labor was abundant. With the development of asphalt shingles the process became much easier to roof your house and almost anyone with some basic knowledge and some direction could do it. Materials were easier to cut and metal flashing pieces and rubber roof boots became commonplace. Now metal roofs have again become popular for sometimes the wrong reasons. One objective is something that is going to last a long time. Your finished roof is only as good as the flashings, penetrations and valleys. To simplify those processes is inviting trouble down the road. Yes, a metal roof can
have excellent longevity if the right type and proper installation is done but the cost will be more than a standard asphalt shingle SQUARE roof. CORNERS Shortcuts in not Jeff Deahl removing the existing roofing
underneath and using nail down type roofing will last no longer than a good quality laminated shingle properly installed. Metal roofs expand and contract and the old roofing can be like sandpaper on the
metal unless a felt paper is installed. The under lament of the roofing is an important feature. Today’s ice and water shield materials are a must around penetrations, in valleys and along eaves. There are many different types of roofing materials such as slate and tile roofs, but again the attention to details is what gives these type roofs superior longevity but also the unique features. All these roofing types have merit. You simply have to pick the one that best suits your needs and style, but don’t cut corners or you will get wet. JEFF DEAHL is president of

Design options abound for driveways THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The driveway that came with the 1921 Craftsman-style house that David Ulick bought five years ago was the original concrete one, marred by cracks and with tree roots starting to break through. “I didn’t like the driveway,” said Ulick, of Pasadena, Calif. “I wanted something a little bit nicer.” He looked through books and drove through the Craftsman-rich neighborhoods of Pasadena to get ideas before deciding on a concrete drive with an antique finish, accented with reclaimed red bricks from the 1920s. “I wanted this to look like the original driveway, an original, nice driveway, and using used bricks gives it a nice old-fashioned look,” Ulick said. “It really makes it a grand entrance for the house,” he added, noting the brick walkway up one side. “I figured I’d treat the Craftsman the way it deserves to be treated, and maintain its design style and heritage.” While a driveway may still be a utilitarian afterthought for many homeowners, others like Ulick are adding some serious curb appeal to their homes by moving beyond basic options like grass or gravel, asphalt or concrete. “The driveway is commonly overlooked,” conceded Michael Keenan, an adjunct assistant professor of landscape architecture at the University of Minnesota. “Driveways are not cheap necessarily, but they are completely functional and necessary if you have a car and a garage.” Doing up the driveway, Keenan said, is a chance to “celebrate the function because it is a piece of the property you do use every day.” The design options have grown in the last decade or so, he said, as pavers — made from precast concrete, clay and natural stone like granite — are being turned out in a range of colors and sizes. Some have rounded edges for an older look; others are mottled to add color variation to the driveway. Installing a customized driveway is a way to put your own stamp on the hardscape and set your house apart from the rest. Depending on the neighborhood, the materials and the quality of the craftsmanship, Keenan said, a driveway also could increase a home’s resale value. “It does become a point of distinction,” he said. “It is something people notice. It is elegant.” The least expensive paved driveways are made of asphalt, which cost
“I don’t think you can make a value judgment on which one (of driveway designs) is the best. It’s got to ﬁt the building that you’re paving next to.” Michael Keenan an adjunct assistant professor of landscape architecture at the University of Minnesota
• about $12 to $15 a square foot, and concrete, costing about $14 to $18 a square foot, Keenan said. Though concrete is more resilient and lasts longer, both materials will crack over time, he said. Pavers, which start at about $20 to $25 a square foot, should last a lifetime, Keenan said. “The key is the fact that the pavement acts as flexible fabric and it can move with the earth, and isn’t a rigid system and isn’t prone to cracking,” he said. Pavers can be used to make traditional patterns like basket-weave or herringbone, or be fashioned into a custom look. For a less traditional look, use a paver that comes in three or four sizes and lay them out at random, Keenan said. Or get a custom design without breaking the bank by using concrete pavers accented with more expensive natural stone pavers. Keenan is also the co-founder and design director of reGEN Land Design in Minneapolis. He apworks with homeowners to find the best driveway for their home. People are most concerned with the color, which might be chosen by looking at the home’s roof, siding or trim color. “I don’t think you can make a value judgment on which one is the best,” Keenan said of driveway designs. “It’s got to fit the building that you’re paving next to.” He might recommend, for example, a traditional red-brick driveway to go with a light blue Colonial home. For a contemporary, environmentally “green” home, he might choose light-colored, permeable pavers — a more environmentally sound choice because they let water back through to the earth under the driveway, rather than
feature real grass interspersed among pavers, which reduces heat and glare and provides some drainage.

forcing it to run off and collect debris on the way to bodies of water. In Naples, Fla., landscape architect W. Christian Busk installs “living driveways” that feature real grass interspersed among pavers. That reduces heat and glare and provides some drainage. “We blur the lines between where driveway ends and where landscape begins,” says Busk, president of Busk & Associates. “It always looks beautiful.” Back in Pasadena, the concrete-and-brick option that Ulick chose is popular
among the many Craftsman and other historical homes in the area, said Mark Peters, the chief estimator for Boston Brick & Stone, which helped create Ulick’s driveway. “It’s a very rich feel and it’s understated,” Peters said. Since he got his driveway in 2009, Ulick said, he has received many compliments, and people sometimes stop to ask if his driveway is the original. “That’s a bigger compliment,” he said, “that it looks like it’s been done years and years and years ago.”
This photo provided by Nelco Landscaping shows a permeable driveway pavement in winter. For a contemporary, environmentally “green” home, Michael Keenan, an adjunct assistant professor of landscape architecture at the University of Minnesota, might choose light-colored, permeable pavers, which are more environmentally conscious by letting water absorb back into the earth under the driveway rather than running off and collecting debris along the way to bodies of water.
Collect your own seeds for next year’s planting BY LEE REICH The Associated Press
September finds me saving seeds of some of this year’s best sweet peppers and most colorful flowers to plant in next year’s garden. Why? Saving my own seeds from year to year gives me a bit of independence from seed companies, which, for one reason or another, may stop offering certain varieties. It’s also a way to maintain an annual supply of seeds that seed companies never offer, such as some of the so-called heirloom varieties handed down for generations from parents to children and from AP neighbor to neighbor. This Sept. 10 photo shows a female cucumber flower And with a seed packet in New Paltz, N.Y. often costing more than $3, saving seeds is also economical. from plants whose flowers selected plant. Hybrid plants This year, for instance, I self-pollinate. Some varieties often are more robust than grew a giant canning tomato of vegetables and flowers their parents — they have from seeds given to me by a may not have been around so-called “hybrid vigor.” friend. Where did my friend long enough to be called Producing hybrid seed of get them? From another “heirlooms,” but still might a known variety is beyond friend. be from self-pollinating the capabilities of most plants. gardeners. Male and female Hybrid seeds, in contrast, plants must be known or Avoid hybrids for are produced when the chosen, and then pollination seed-saving pollen of one selected plant effected without contamiHeirloom seeds are is made to fertilize another nation from other plants or
even the female plant itself. When it comes to flavor or beauty, hybrid is not always “high-bred.” New varieties of sweetpeas have beautiful flowers, but they cannot match the intoxicating fragrance of an heirloom variety such as Painted Lady, which was introduced nearly two centuries ago. The old Golden Bantam corn may not be as sweet as newer hybrids, but it has much richer, cornier flavor. Seeds taken from a hybrid plant will not, when planted, yield plants the same as the parent plant. Take the seeds out of a hybrid sweet pepper, such as Candy Apple, and you will not get Candy Apple fruits on those plants next year. So you must buy seeds of hybrid varieties if you want those specific varieties.
Give seed development time If you choose to save seeds from your own garden plants, select plants that are
healthy. Let fruits or flowers mature, whether they are the dry pods of bean plants or radish plants, the fruits of pepper or cucumber plants, or the dry seed heads of marigolds or zinnias. Mature pepper fruits generally are red, although some might be yellow or purple; the fruits are very tasty at this point. Mature cucumber fruits are hardly edible, with thick or hard skins and hard seeds. Rinse well and then dry the seeds from juicy plants. No need to do anything with the dry seeds you pop out of radish pods or rub from the heads of marigolds or daisies, except to pack them away. (Botanically, the “pod” of radish or other members of the cabbage family is not a pod, but a siliques, which is a pod-like structure with a membrane separating its two halves.) Cool, dry conditions keep seeds at their best in storage. Small envelopes are good for storing small seeds such as tomato, pepper and radish. A jar is a good long-term home for larger seeds such as beans and corn.
And next year ...? What kind of plants you end up growing next year will depend on whether the seeds you collect are from hybrid plants, and whether the seeds were from plants that self-pollinate or cross-pollinate. Cucumbers, for example, have separate male and female flowers, so they readily cross-pollinate. To perpetuate a non-hybrid cucumber variety, either grow the plants in isolation from other cucumber varieties or else bag and hand-pollinate a few female flowers with male flowers on the same plant. A female cucumber or squash flower is easily recognizable by the small fruit at the base of the flower. The most predictable outcomes from saved seeds will be from those taken from non-hybrid plants that have not cross-pollinated or do not do so readily — such as heirloom varieties of tomatoes and peppers. Expect some interesting results with the others.
