Murderer arrested again FROM STAFF REPORTS

AUBURN — A DeKalb County man who went to prison for the 1984 murder of an elderly Butler woman is facing legal troubles again. Robert W. Sleek Jr., 60, of the 3300 block of C.R. 427, Waterloo, was arrested Oct. 5 by the Waterloo Police Department on a warrant charging him with theft, a Class D felony. He is scheduled to appear Monday for an initial hearing in DeKalb Superior Court I. Sleek is accused of taking a generator, ladder and rare electrical components from a yard where he was mowing. Sleek

first denied the allegation, then admitted he had taken the items and said he was willing to pay restitution, according to a police affidavit of probable cause for Sleek’s arrest. Police interviewed Sleek about the alleged theft while he was in the DeKalb County Jail, serving Sleek a 60-day sentence for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He had pleaded guilty to that offense Aug. 28 in DeKalb Superior Court I. Sleek has served a 50-year

prison sentence in the Indiana Department of Correction for his conviction on a charge of murder in the Oct. 5, 1984, stabbing death of 67-year-old Pearl Lemper, who was his neighbor in a duplex. A hunter found her body nine days later in a field near Newville. A DeKalb County jury found Sleek guilty of murder, and then-Judge Charles Quinn sentenced Sleek to 60 years in prison. Sleek appealed, and the Indiana Supreme Court overturned his conviction, ordering a new trial. The Supreme Court ruled a taped confession that was played to

Fremont firefighters pack up their equipment Friday morning following the Thursday night fire that claimed the life of a rural Fremont teen.

Augustus “Gus” Larson, 13, died in the fire that’s still under investigation.

Fremont boy, 13, dies in fire BY MIKE MARTURELLO

FREMONT — A Fremont Middle School eighth-grader lost his life in fire late Thursday night. Augustus “Gus” Larson, 13, apparently did not want to jump from the window of his second story bedroom to flee the fire, said information from Steuben County Sheriff Tim Troyer. “The upstairs window/screen to Gus’s bedroom was broken out and it is believed that Gus did not want to jump and retreated back inside the home in an attempt to escape elsewhere. His body was discovered still inside the bedroom area,” Troyer said. Fremont Community Schools officials were notified and prepared for grief counseling for students. Steuben County Coroner Bill Harter said Gus succumbed to smoke inhalation. His death was ruled accidental. An autopsy was

conducted Friday morning in Fort Wayne. The fire was at 6655 E. C.R. 500N, Fremont, at the Mitchel and Crystal Larson residence. It was reported at about 11:45 p.m. “The Larson family was sleeping when an adult was awakened to the smell of smoke. All family members were immediately awakened and began to escape the home that was filling with heavy smoke,” Troyer said. When Fremont Police arrived on the scene, they found the home fully engulfed in flames, said a news release from the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department. Members of the Larson family were outside of the home and told police there was one person still inside. Personnel from the Fremont Police and Fire departments and Steuben County Sheriff’s Department were on the scene. Fremont Fire and Police personnel tried in vain to reach

the jury during the first trial was inadmissible, because it was obtained illegally, and violated Sleek’s Miranda rights. The case was transferred to Delaware County, where Sleek pleaded guilty to murder. On April 16, 1987, Sleek was sentenced to 50 years in prison. Indiana Department of Correction records says Sleek’s earliest possible release date was Feb. 9, 2009, and appear to indicate he was released from prison on that date, after serving nearly 22 years. In the 1987 sentencing hearing, the judge noted Sleek’s criminal SEE MURDERER, PAGE A8

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is creating a commission to plan the state’s future transportation infrastructure. The governor’s office says Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann will be the panel’s co-chairwoman with Cathy Langham, who is president of Indianapolis-based Langham Logistics. Pence is to name additional members of the panel in the coming weeks. The panel will review projects related to transportation by road, water, air and rail. It’s charged with identifying a list of priority projects for the next 10 years. Pence made the creation of such a commission an objective during his gubernatorial campaign last year.

Gus, “however, the fire was too involved to fully enter the structure,” Troyer said. Firefighters from seven departments were called in to fight the fire, which was placed under control at 1:17 p.m. The fire remains under investigation by the sheriff, Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office and Fremont Fire. Investigators remained on the scene Friday afternoon. Assisting the Fremont Fire Department were fire departments from Angola, Orland, Ashley, Steuben Township, Hudson, Montgomery, Mich., and Northwest Township in Ohio. Also on the scene were personnel from the Indiana State Police, Steuben County Emergency Management, American Red Cross and Steuben County Coroner’s Office.

WASHINGTON (AP) — With time running short, President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner accelerated efforts Friday to prevent the U.S. Treasury from default and end a partial government shutdown that stretched into an 11th day. The latest impacts: New aircraft grounded, military chaplains silenced and a crab harvest jeopardized in the Bering Sea. “Let’s put this hysterical talk of default behind us and instead start talking about finding solutions,” said Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. Republicans in the House and Senate separately made proposals to the White House for ending an impasse that polls say has inflicted damage on their party politically. Each offered to reopen the government and raise the $16.7 trillion debt limit — but only as part of broader approaches that envision deficit savings, changes to the health care law known as Obamacare and an easing of across-the-board spending cuts that the White House and Congress both dislike. The details and timing differed. “We’re waiting to hear” from administration officials, said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Hopes remained high on Wall Street, where investors sent the Dow Jones industrial average 111 points higher following Thursday’s 323-point surge. Obama met at the White House with small business owners about the impacts they were feeling from the budget battles, and said he hoped to be able to bring them toward a conclusion, said Det Ansinn, who attended the session. “He was a little slightly melancholy that maybe it could be done over the weekend and maybe not. He’s been down this road before,” said Ansinn, owner of Doylestown, Pa.-based mobile and Web app developer Brick Simple. Ansinn said he told the president how the shutdown is threating to delay some of his projects and he fears what a possible impending government default could do to the SEE GOP, PAGE A8

Auburn man killed when SUV leaves road, hits tree FROM STAFF REPORTS

AUBURN — An Auburn man was killed when the sport-utility vehicle he was driving struck a tree Friday at 2:57 p.m. on DeKalb C.R. 29, north of the DeKalb-Allen county line road. Joseph L. Raymond, 35, of the 300 block of Lincoln Street, died at the scene, the DeKalb County Police Department said. His passenger, David N. Morgan, 35, of Corbin, Ky., suffered injuries to his left arm and orbital socket and a nasal fracture. He was transported to Parkview Regional Medical Center at Fort Wayne

to be treated for his injuries. Police said Raymond was driving southbound on C.R. 29, approximately 2,000 feet north of C.R. 72, which forms the county line. For no apparent reason, his 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee veered off the roadway, entered the west ditch and struck the tree head-on. The reason the vehicle went off the road is uncertain and is being investigated by accident reconstructing officers from the Indiana State Police and DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department, a news release said.


An Auburn man was killed when this sport-utility vehicle struck a tree Friday afternoon on C.R. 29, south of C.R. 68, DeKalb County Police said. The crash scene is approximately five miles south of Auburn and one-half mile north of the DeKalb-Allen county line.

GREENCASTLE (AP) — A Chicago couple is giving $15 million to DePauw University toward a plan for better preparing musicians to market themselves and reach broader audiences. Judson and Joyce Green are both graduates of the private university in the central Indiana city of Greencastle. The donation announced Friday follows another $15 million gift they made in 2007 toward construction of DePauw’s current music school building. DePauw officials say the school’s 21st Century Musician Initiative aims to give student musicians more training in business skills, audience development and entrepreneurship so they can adapt in a rapidly changing music industry.

Some homeowners in Granger are reporting 30 stink bugs a day in their houses. Exterminator Roger Shipley tells The Elkhart Truth the insect also known as the East Asian stink bug first showed up in the U.S. in the late 1990s. Its population has been growing ever since. Shipley says the bugs secrete their odor when they are stressed. He says homeowners who find the bugs should suck them up with a vacuum and immediately dispose of the bag.

FORT WAYNE (AP) — The Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend is working to become more accessible to those with hearing impairments through an initiative led by Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades. Rhoades has asked two current seminarians to learn sign language to celebrate Mass and provide sacraments. He’s also sponsoring a Day of Reflection for the Deaf on Saturday in hopes of drawing out deaf Catholics. The diocese offers a sign language interpreter at Mass occasionally at churches in Fort Wayne and South Bend but wants to reach out to others in the community.

FORT WAYNE — Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne announced Friday that its 2014 RiverFest will be canceled, our news partner, NewsChannel 15, reports. The event started four years ago and included boat rides, food vendors, crafts, and fireworks. Chief Communications Officer Nicole Wilkins said a 4 percent drop in class credit hours last semester is responsible for a $4 million budget cut. She said low enrollment numbers are also responsible for the cancellation of the event.

ENHS recognized for 100 years of continuous accreditation BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — East Noble High School was recognized recently at the Indiana AdvancED Fall Conference for maintaining 100 years of continuous accreditation from AdvancED and the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement. The award includes accreditation of Kendallville High School, a predecessor of East Noble High School, which opened in 1966. The commission, an accrediting division for AdvancED, assists

schools and districts through the accreditation process and helps those institutions demonstrate a continuous commitment to providing quality education programs. To earn accreditation, schools must meet AdvancED’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement. “We are proud of East Noble High School for their commitment to quality and continuous improvement,” Indiana’s director for AdvancED, Leslie Ballard, said in a news release. “It demonstrates to

parents and the community that the school is dedicated to providing students with a quality education, and that they are open to external scrutiny.” Achieving 100 years of continuous accreditation is an exceptional accomplishment, said Dr. Mark Egan, president and CEO of AdvancED. He added, “The staff and school community at East Noble High School deserve our highest praise for their ongoing pursuit of quality and excellence.” More information about accreditation may be found at www.

Showgirl-Angola lawsuit ruling might be delayed

Three booked into Noble County Jail ALBION — Three people were booked into the Noble County Jail Thursday and Friday, the county sheriff’s department said. • Julie Ann Ross, 53, of Angola was booked on a probation violation warrant for failure to appear for a hearing on her probation for a 2012 conviction for battery by means of a deadly weapon. • Joshua David Short, 30, of Rome City was charged with operating while intoxicated with a previous conviction. • Joshua Thomas Summey, 20, of Kendallville was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated with a blood-alcohol content equal to or greater than 0.15 percent.




Trine president Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., left, poses with Joan and Jim Bock during the Friday dedication of the Jim

and Joan Bock Center for Innovation and Biomedical Engineering.

Bock center dedicated; Trine honors supporters ANGOLA — “The Jim and Joan Bock Center for Innovation and Biomedical Engineering. Isn’t that cool?” Those were Jim Bock’s first words when he and his wife, Joan, stepped to the lectern during the dedication for the building at Trine University on Oct. 4. The $6 million, nearly 25,000-square-foot Jim and Joan Bock Center for Innovation and Biomedical Engineering opened in August. The brick structure is home to Trine’s Innovation One (i1), an incubator for technology and business to help spur economic development in the region, and laboratories stocked with state-of-the-art equipment to support i1 and the Allen School of Engineering & Technology. For 70 years, the Aero Building stood here, Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., Trine president told those gathered for the dedication as he gestured to the new building. “This facility supports the preparation of our students for the real world. It’s all about giving students opportunities on campus to learn to compete in a global workforce. It’s about giving local industry someone they can turn to for help. It’s about thinking for the future.” “With our new Jim and Joan Bock Center for Innovation and Biomedical Engineering, we will continue to challenge and prepare students, provide limitless opportunities for faculty and support rapidly expanding markets in communities worldwide,” Brooks said. The dedication was part of the weekend homecoming festivities. “We’re so happy we can do this,” Jim Bock, a 1954 alumnus and Trine trustee, told the crowd. “We’re looking forward to a successful program and for

our students to be successful out in the world.” The Bocks have long said they credit the university for his success. In the Bock Center’s lower level, the south end is anchored by a cast metals laboratory while the north end has a new plastics laboratory to support Trine’s plastics engineering minor. The new minor is offered for the first time this year and has more than 30 students enrolled. Other laboratories in the building include rapid prototyping and motion analysis on the upper level that also has space for i1 offices and Career Services. Trine is the only Indiana university to have an entrepreneur-in-residence on campus through Elevate Ventures and that office is also on the second floor. The Bocks gave $1 million to Trine to help launch the Bock Center. Metal Technologies Inc., Rieke Corp., the Cole Foundation and others contributed to make the building possible.

Joan Bock named ‘Woman of Distinction’ Joan Bock was named Trine’s Woman of Distinction for her service and support of Trine. The award was announced during the 18th annual Touchstone Donor Recognition Dinner on Oct. 3. In addition to the Bock Center for Innovation, Bock and her husband, Jim, a Trine alumnus and trustee, have supported the university through an endowed scholarship and many other areas of support. “This year’s recipient is a visionary who goes into the world and sees the possibilities in people, in communities, in business and here at this university,” Brooks said before introducing Bock. After her name was announced, she was given a standing ovation.

Bock, Elkhart, also supports Bashor Children’s Home, Child Abuse Prevention Services and Women’s Care Center.

Lynn Brooks honored as Trine ‘Pillar of Success’ Trine University awarded its Pillar of Success Award on Thursday evening to an alumnus and trustee. Lynn A. Brooks, a 1975 graduate, learned he was the recipient of the Pillar of Success Award, one of Trine’s highest awards, while watching a photo montage video that highlighted pictures of him from early childhood to the present. He received a standing ovation from more than 200 guests when he came forward to accept his award during the recognition dinner. “Some might say he is a man of few words, but that those words can lead to transformational change and positive impact to those around him. He is always one of sound judgment, keen insight and instrumental decision-making,” said Earl Brooks. The pillar award is given to those who provide vital support to the university through their commitment, loyalty and dedication. Lynn Brooks, Auburn, is president and chief executive officer of Rieke Packaging Systems in Auburn, a position he has held since 1996. He is also president for Rieke’s parent company, TriMas Corp., Bloomfield Hills, Mich. He and his wife, Patti, along with Rieke Packaging Systems, support the university through the Trine Fund, scholarship gala, scholarship golf outings, Trine’s Engineering publication and the new Jim and Joan Bock Center for Innovation and Biomedical Engineering.

ANGOLA — The first hearing in the federal lawsuit against Angola brought by the owners of a proposed Showgirl strip club in the city likely will be continued, indicated a Thursday filing in U.S. Federal District Court, South Bend. Alva and Sandra Butler of Fort Wayne, owners of the Showgirl III strip club in that city, are suing Angola over alleged rights violations in denying the opening of a Showgirl club here. The case was filed in March and through a variety of filings and pleadings on the part of Butler and Angola, the case was headed for an Oct. 25 hearing in South Bend before Judge Robert L. Miller Jr. The hearing was to take up the city’s motion for summary judgment and Butler’s motion for a preliminary injunction. “It appears very likely that the court will be unable to produce a ruling (with adequate reasoning and discussion of the cited authorities) on the pending motion for judgment on the pleadings before the October 25 hearing,” Miller wrote. “Such a ruling was expected to be issued before October 25 when the other motions were set for hearing on that date.” Miller said the parties could seek a continuance of the Oct. 25 hearing or go on with it as planned. What Angola requested, in essence, was dismissal of the suit. Butler wants the court to rule city law and actions nulified. In March, Butler sued the

city, claiming that in trying to open a sexually oriented business, his constitutional rights were violated. Butler claims when he purchased the former Slider’s Grill and Bar building at 310 W. Wendell Jacob Ave. on Aug. 9, it met Angola’s existing requirements to operate a sexually oriented business. His suit claims the city took actions that would legislate him out of being able to operate at the former Slider’s location. The city claims it was well within its rights to enact ordinances regulating sexually oriented businesses and changing zoning classifications where the businesses would be allowed. The city’s actions came in September and November. Meanwhile, as part of the pleadings, the city has outlined a variety of land parcels in Angola’s zoning jurisdiction where Showgirl would be able to operate under the new zoning regulations. There are 29 properties covering 95.5 acres that would be eligible in their entirety for use by a sexually oriented business. Another 12 parcels covering 14.7 acres would be partly eligible for use by a sexually oriented business. Expert witnesses on behalf of Butler, his attorneys countered, show there are no sites in Angola that would meet the requirements to allow siting of a sexually oriented business. In response to the city’s filing, Butler’s attorneys said their expert witnesses have testified in cases for both sides of clients in adult entertainment industry court battles.

Death In The News • Larry Benoit, hunter of big bucks, dies MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Larry Benoit, a deer hunter who helped spawn a revival of the art of tracking and created an empire of books, videos and seminars, has died. He was 89. Benoit, whose given name was Lanyard, died Tuesday at Larry Benoit his home in Duxbury at 89. The cause of death was not released, but his son Shane said his father’s health had been declining. In the past 40 years, the name Benoit has become synonymous with deer hunting and the bagging of huge bucks, many weighing more than 200 pounds. During a lifetime of hunting, his family estimated, Benoit shot at least 200 bucks. “He has been my hero since I was 12 or 13,” said Scott Smolen, 56, a farmer from Mondovi, Wis., who invited Benoit to hunt his farm last November, when Benoit shot his last buck. Smolen first came to know Benoit by buying hunting supplies from him. “In my opinion,” Smolen said, “he was the greatest deer hunter that ever walked the face of the Earth.” The Benoit name moved beyond just the local hunters of central Vermont after a local photographer and author noticed that during every autumn’s hunting season, several large deer would be hanging outside the Benoit home along Route 100 just outside Waterbury. “People just couldn’t believe that we could successfully keep shooting huge bucks every year,” Shane Benoit said Friday.

Mom visits American detained in North Korea SEATTLE (AP) — An ailing American who has been detained in North Korea for 11 months has had an emotional reunion with his mother for the first time since he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor, the family said Friday. Myunghee Bae was allowed into North Korea to see her son, Kenneth Bae, a Korean-American Christian missionary, at a hospital where he has been held since August. Bae’s sister, Terri Chung, of the Seattle suburb of Edmonds, said Friday she had not yet spoken with her mother, but did hear from the Swedish ambassador in Pyongyang, who attended the visit. Photographs of the reunion depicted Bae, wearing vertical stripes of blue and white, embracing his mother and holding her hand. “He said it was a very emotional meeting, that they had a reunion and that Kenneth did look better from

when he was hospitalized on Aug. 9,” Chung said. Kenneth Bae, a 45-year-old tour operator and Christian missionary, was arrested last November while leading a group of tourists in the northeastern region of Rason. The government accused him of subversive acts. He was transferred over the summer from a prison camp, where he largely farmed vegetables, to the hospital because he had lost more than 50 pounds. He also suffers from diabetes, an enlarged heart, liver problems and back pain, his family has said. The ambassador reported that Bae has regained about 15 pounds since being hospitalized, Chung said. “The rest he’s been given must be helping,” Chung said. Though comforting, the visit did not necessarily give the family any greater hope that Bae might soon be freed: “We can only hope,” Chung said.

This is shutdown theater and fake austerity Government wants you to play a role in the “shutdown” of the federal government. Your role is to panic. Republicans and Democrats both assume that shutting some government is a terrible thing. The press concurs. “Shutdown threatens fragile economy,” warns Politico. “Federal workers turn to prayer,” laments The Washington Post. If the public starts noticing that life goes on as usual without all 3.4 million federal workers, we might get dangerous ideas, like JOHN doing without so much government. Politicians don’t want that. STOSSEL They’d rather have us worry about how America will cope. President Obama gave a speech where he actually said we need to keep government open for the sake of people like the person working for the Department of Agriculture “out there helping some Bureaucrats, acting farmers make sure like bullies, protest that they’re making some modest profit,” the partial closures by and the Department doing things like cutting of Housing and Urban Development off access to public “helping somebody parks — even privately buy a house for the first time.” funded ones. Give me a break. Farmers don’t need bureaucrats to teach them how to make a profit, and Americans can buy first homes without HUD helping a chosen few. Americans would make more profit and afford better homes if they didn’t have to spend a third of national income on federal taxes. Bureaucrats, acting like bullies, protest the partial closures by doing things like cutting off access to public parks — even privately funded ones. Federal cops block access to outdoor war memorials and much of Mt. Rushmore. They block access to motels and order people out of private homes that happen to sit on federal land. The Washington Free Beacon reports, “The closure of a Virginia park that sits on federal land, even though the government provides no resources for its maintenance or operation.” This is shutdown theater. It’s similar to the fake “austerity measures” in other countries. We’re told that Europe’s slow economic growth is a result of “austerity” embraced by European governments. But there hasn’t really been any austerity. England, where a “conservative” government is in charge, increased government spending by 4 percent. “Austerity” in Greece — supposedly so drastic that the public has little choice but to riot in protest — meant changes like reducing mandatory severance pay to one entire year (instead of two!). In the U.S., Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Cal., told CNN the federal government has cut so much spending that there’s just nothing left to cut: “The cupboard is bare! There’s no more cuts to make!” What? The federal government spends almost $4 trillion! The government cupboard overflows! We fund entire cabinet departments that are worse than useless. The Labor Department interferes with actual labor. Commerce would flow more smoothly without Commerce Department bureaucrats channeling money to their cronies. The government hasn’t cut spending — it never does. After the last shutdowns, politicians even voted to award retroactive pay to government workers who didn’t work. Bet they do it again this time. The federal government remains the biggest employer in the country. President Obama says so with pride. Compare this to what happens in the private sector in tough times: AT&T cut 40,000 workers. Sears cut 50,000. IBM: 60,000. They weren’t easy decisions, but they enabled the companies to stay profitable. With fewer workers, leaner companies found more efficient ways to get things done. And the rest of us barely noticed. We expect change and adaptation in free-market institutions. But it doesn’t happen in government. Government just grows. Maybe the ugliest part of this story is that the city that whines most about suffering through the shutdown, Washington, D.C., is now the richest geographic area in America. Washington got richer while the rest of America didn’t. Over the past 12 years, median income in the U.S. dropped about 6.5 percent — but not in D.C.! There, it rose 23 percent. Four of the five richest counties now surround Washington, D.C. No wonder politicians and bureaucrats are convinced big government is essential to keep the economy going — it is essential to keep them going.

Voice Of The People • East Noble Spanish teacher planning trips to Costa Rica, Europe To the editor: I am a Spanish teacher at East Noble High School. When I was in high school, I had some awesome inspiration from my teachers to travel. So I traveled in 2004 with a school group to volunteer in Ecuador for 10 days during the summer. I loved it, so I applied, and was accepted, though IU Honors to study in Mexico for seven weeks in 2005. That sparked a whole new life for me, traveling, studying Spanish, and now I am extremely happy in my position, teaching high schoolers what I love! So I have decided to share the love and have begun organizing travel opportunities for our area’s students, their parents, and the school staff. We are “EN TRAVELS” and we are approaching our very first trip abroad, June 24 to July 2, to Costa Rica. There are 19 travelers signed up to go to Costa Rica, along with three chaperones. I have also already started planning for 2014, offering a trip to London, Paris and Barcelona, and have eight travelers signed up already. I am so excited about the level of interest and support I have come upon so far! In order to help the students fund their trip, we are doing our best to get in some creative and effective fundraising. We have designed T-shirts, and are offering businesses, as well as individuals, space on the back of the shirt for logos, short messages and names. We will have

the space organized by amount donated, and the font/logo size increases based on the donation amount. Another big fundraiser that we are trying to spread the word about is our recycling fundraiser. At the high school, we are collecting old/used phones, ink cartridges and more, which we can turn in to a Texas-based company for profit! This is nice in that we are able to move away from asking for dollar donations, which we know people can be overrun by. It is wonderful to be able to earn earn money by sending in unwanted items! All the travelers are tracking their progress online, and we would love to get the word out about how people can help support us — buying advertising space on our shirts, donations to group or individuals, and dropping off technology items. I moved from Jay County in 2011 for the job here at the East Noble High School and have been continuously impressed with the level of support in this community. I want to thank you all for that support and would welcome any emails from those interested in learning more about our group and activities. Thank you!

What Others Say • AT&T takes the lead on texting The world’s largest telecommunications company has launched a massive public service campaign to tell people not to use its own products — not behind the wheel, anyway. And somehow, it feels less self-serving than a cigarette company warning about the dangers of smoking, a liquor company telling you not to drink and drive or a Bushmaster

manufacturer preaching about gun safety. After all, this isn’t an inherently dangerous product. This is about a total misuse of phones, a relatively new phenomenon. A decade ago, who envisioned sending a text message at 70 mph on the Garden State Parkway? Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s chairman and chief executive, said in an interview a few years ago that someone close to him caused an accident while texting.

The smartphone “is a product we sell and it’s being used inappropriately,” he told the New York Times. And to make that clear, his company has enlisted the aid of its fiercest rivals, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, which together have spent millions on co-branded ads and public events since 2010, to warn against texting while driving. AT&T even got the legendary German filmmaker Werner Herzog to direct a series of short

films on the dangers. As a result, the number of people who had sworn off texting and driving has risen from 2.5 million to more than 3 million nationwide. Many did so after hearing the publicized stories of accident victims who were texting — such as a young woman trapped screaming inside her burning car for 23 minutes, in a harrowing video recorded on a police cruiser’s dash cam.

Porsche exhibit features rarities, celebrity cars RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Curator Ken Gross had his first encounter with Porsches in college, when the cool guys were driving Super 90 Coupes. His old Ford, which was fine for attracting girls in high school, didn’t compare. “I lusted after that car,� Gross says. “A friend let me drive his, and it was kind of an epiphany for me.� He bought a 1961 Super 90 Coupe after graduate school in 1966, then sold it before he went to Vietnam in the U.S. Navy. Although he hasn’t owned another one since, he has found a job that makes for a fine consolation prize — curating museum shows that include Porsches, such as the one that opens Saturday at the N.C. Museum of Art. This show is different from other car exhibits that Gross has curated because it’s the first one he’s done that focuses only on Porsches. The show has 22 of the German-made cars, starting with a 1938

Type 64 Berlin-Rom Racer and including actor Steve McQueen’s 1958 Speedster, fashion designer Ralph Lauren’s 1988 Type 959 and a 1989 Panamericana concept car with a zip-off roof that’s never been in the U.S. before and was an 80th birthday gift to Ferry Porsche. It’s the only one of that car, which had a dune buggy feel to it while still maintaining that clear Porsche design. Porsche didn’t put the car into production, although elements of its design are apparent in the modern 911s, Gross said. Janis Joplin’s psychedelically painted 1965 Type 356C Cabriolet that’s usually at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland also is part of the exhibit, titled “Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed.� Museum exhibits of cars date back to 1951, when the Museum of Modern Art produced a show titled “Eight Automobiles,� and are gaining in popularity

A 1958 Porsche Type 356 Speedster 1600 Super once owned by Steve McQueen is on display in the Porsche By Design Seducing Speed exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, N.C.

Several race cars are part of the exhibit, including the Type 804 Formula One from 1962, designed so the driver sat in an aluminum cradle that’s formed by the gas tank. Racer Dan Gurney won two races in that car. “It wasn’t that they weren’t concerned about safety, but let’s say it was a secondary concern,� Gross said.

Among the things that set Porsche apart from other automobile manufacturers is its continuity of design, Gross said, which is evident from that 1938 Type 64 designed by founder Ferdinand Porsche to the race cars that the company originally designed as a way of free advertising since it didn’t have a large marketing budget.

Jeff Zwart, a seven-time Pike’s Peak Hill Climb champion who does most of Porsche’s advertising, and Magnus Walker, a Porsche collector who builds 911s, are expected to be there. Walker’s love affair with Porsche was in full bloom by 1977, when he was 10 years old and wrote to Porsche to say he wanted to design cars for them. Thirty-five years later, a short documentary about him and his wife, Karen, titled “Urban Warriorâ€? got the attention of Porsche, and he got a letter, inviting him to Stuttgart, Germany, where he visited the factory recently. “Our passion with the Porsche is the driving experience the car offers,â€? he said. â€? ‌ Porsche is a language. It doesn’t matter if you speak English, German or Japanese. It’s a worldwide, universal language that everyone can relate to. ‌ It’s a driving experience, an art experience, as well as a bond, sort of connecting experience.â€?

with museum directors, who see them as a way to attract a new audience. Gross, former director of the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, now works as a guest curator for museum exhibits about cars, most recently at the Frist Center for Visual Arts in Nashville, Tenn., and has exhibits scheduled through 2016. “They are rolling sculpture,� said NCMA Director Larry Wheeler. “It’s the design and exquisite quality of Porsche that has been sustained from the very beginning. In terms of art museums embracing great industrial design, this is not new.� Both Wheeler and Gross said they believe the North Carolina exhibit is the first car exhibit in a fine art museum that features only Porsches. Among the museum’s events scheduled for the opening is a meet-up Saturday where Porsche owners will bring their cars to the museum parking lot.

economy. In meetings with lawmakers over two days, Obama left open the possibility he would sign legislation repealing a medical device tax enacted as part of the health care law. Yet there was no indication he was willing to do so with a default looming and the government partially closed. Obama called Boehner at midafternoon, and Michael Steel, a spokesman for the leader of House Republicans, said, “They agreed that we should all keep talking.” Jay Carney, the president’s press secretary, said Obama “appreciates the constructive nature of the conversation and

the proposal that House Republicans put forward. At yet, the spokesman said, “He has some concerns with it.” In Congress, the man certain to be involved in any final agreement, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, gave no indication of his plans. While the impact of the shutdown varies widely, lawmakers seemed to be taking care of their own needs. The members-only House gym remained in operation, and enough Senate staff was at work to operate the aging underground tram that ferries senators and others from the Russell Office Building to the Capitol a short distance away. The shutdown sent ripples nationwide.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Air Force fired the general in charge of its nuclear missiles on Friday, just two days after a Navy admiral with top nuclear weapons responsibilities was sacked. Both men are caught up in investigations of alleged personal misconduct, adding to a cascade of turmoil inside the nation’s nuclear weapons force. The Air Force removed Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, a 35-year veteran, from his command of 20th Air Force, responsible for all 450 of the service’s interconti-

nental ballistic missiles. Carey, who took his post in Wyoming in June 2012, will be reassigned pending the outcome of an investigation into personal misbehavior, the service said. The Air Force would not specify what Carey is alleged to have done wrong, but two officials with knowledge of the investigation indicated that it was linked to alcohol use. They said it was not related to the performance or combat readiness of ICBM units or to his stewardship of the force.

Removing senior officers in the nuclear force is rare but has happened twice this week. On Wednesday the Navy said Vice Adm. Tim Giardina, the second-incharge at U.S. Strategic Command, was fired amid an investigation of gambling issues. He was demoted from three- to two-star rank and reassigned to a Navy staff job until the investigation is completed. Together, the firings add a new dimension to a set of serious problems facing the military’s nuclear force.

Another migrant ship capsizes VALLETTA, Malta (AP) — For the second time in a week, a smugglers’ boat overloaded with migrants capsized in the Canal of Sicily on Friday as it made the perilous crossing from Africa to Europe. At least 27 people drowned, but 221 people were rescued in a joint Italian-Maltese operation, officials said. Helicopters ferried the injured to Lampedusa, the Italian island that is closer to Africa than the Italian mainland and the destination of choice for most

smugglers’ boats leaving Tunisia or Libya. It was off Lampedusa that a migrant ship from Libya capsized Oct. 3 with some 500 people aboard. Only 155 survived. Friday’s capsizing occurred 65 miles (105 kilometers) southeast of Lampedusa, but in waters where Malta has search and rescue responsibilities. The two shipwrecks were the latest grim reminder of the extreme risks that migrants and asylum-seekers often take in an effort to slip into Europe every year by boat. Facing

unrest and persecution in Africa and the Middle East, many of the migrants think the Lampedusa escape route to Europe, which is barely 70 miles (113 kilometers) from northern Africa, is worth the risk. “They do know that they are risking their lives, but it is a rational decision,” said Maurizio Albahari, assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Notre Dame. “Because they know for a fact they will be facing death or persecution at home.”

due to the court ruling, DeKalb County authorities could not object to Sleek’s residence. Sleek apparently is planning to move to Allen County soon, however, Bundy said. Sleek returned to DeKalb County in February, Bundy added. After his release from the Indiana prison system in 2009, Pennsylvania revoked Sleek’s parole on the rape conviction and returned him to a Pennsylvania prison for approximately three years, Bundy said.

Suh’s $100,000 fine from NFL upheld after appeal DETROIT — Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh lost an appeal of the $100,000 fine against him, taking a financial hit for a block below the belt. The six-figure fine was the largest in NFL history for on-field conduct, not including money lost by players due to suspensions. It surpassed the $87,500 Chicago Bears linebacker Bryan Cox was docked in 1996 for making an obscene gesture to a line judge and screaming obscenities.

Homecoming romp Knights send New Haven to 1st defeat East Noble 30, Class 4A No. 2 New Haven 6


KENDALLVILLE — With the amount of confidence, agility and speed Brandon Mable ran with Friday night, one wouldn’t have thought he had been out for three weeks. Welcome back, Mable. “It’s great to be back. I have missed it so much,” he said. Mable recorded 227 yards on the ground for two touchdowns and caught a pair of passes for 60 yards as East Noble rolled over Class 4A No. 2 New Haven, 30-6. It was Mable’s first varsity action since Sept. 13 against DeKalb due to undisclosed reasons. “I wanted to come back out tonight and prove to everybody that I am still hungry for this game and to go down to state and win it,” Mable said. “Coming into tonight, I knew (New Haven) was the secondranked team in the state. I wanted to punish them. I have been out three weeks and there are a lot of people I wanted to run over. I have a lot of making up to do.” When Mable ran the ball, he was bound and determined to keep moving forward. On a 16-play drive late in the first quarter, Mable recorded 37 yards before he concluded

the drive with a dive into the end zone. He hit the three-yard line and started falling, prior to spinning in for the score. His other score came on a play which was just as impressive. Mable hit the second level quick and threw in the 100-meter speed, going untouched in the final 45 of a 49-yard romp.

“Every time I touched the ball, I wanted to fall forward. Even if I got tripped up, I just wanted to fall forward,” Mable said. East Noble’s offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage in the game, opening holes for anyone who received the rock in the backfield. SEE HOMECOMING, PAGE B2

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — It wasn’t easy, but the Prairie Heights Panthers knocked off Northeast Corner Conference foe West Noble Friday night 21-13. The Panthers started off slow in the first quarter, but capitalized on good ball movement downfield. They found the end zone during their second possession in the form of a rushing touchdown by Cassten Everidge from three yards out to cap off a 81-yard scoring drive. The PH defense forced numerous three-and-outs against the Chargers during the first half. Special teams played a big role as well. Panther senior Corey Johnson made big plays in all three phases. He twice pinned the Chargers inside their 10-yard

2012 FORD FOCUS SE 4 DR, Hatchback

ALBION — With the regular season winding down, football teams are looking to build some momentum for the sectional. Friday, Central Noble scored the first time it had the ball, with quarterback Brock Noe finding teammate Joel Cochard behind the Eastside defense for a 62-yard touchdown pass on the Cougars’ first play of the game. The Blazers scored the next 33 points, however, for a 33-6 win at Albion. Eastside improved to 3-5 overall and 2-5 in Northeast Corner Conference play. Central Noble fell to 1-7 overall and 0-7 in the NECC. Following Central Noble’s score, Eastside responded with its first scoring drive, covering 57 yards in six plays, capped by P.J. Dean’s 9-yard run. Kyle Franz’s kick made it 7-6 Blazers with 5:50 left in the first. On Eastside’s first possession of the second quarter, Dean hooked up with Ty Lockhart on a slant pattern. Lockhart turned that short pass into a 33-yard touchdown play. Franz’s kick made it 14-6. The Blazers’ third score of the half was set up by Kadis Renier’s 31-yard punt return to the Cougar 19. On the next play, Conner Dove found Lockhart for the score with less than a minute left in the half. The Cougars held the ball for more than four minutes and covered 40 yards on their opening possession of the third.

Verlander back in form at the perfect time DETROIT (AP) — A season’s worth of tinkering finally paid off for Justin Verlander. For months, the Detroit right-hander insisted he was on the verge of finding the MVP form that had deserted him — and although that appeared to be a false hope for a while, Verlander was at his best when the Tigers needed him most. For a second straight season, Verlander delivered in Game 5 of the AL division series, eliminating Oakland with an eight-inning masterpiece Thursday night and sending Detroit to its third straight championship series. “Knowing from jump street that things weren’t right this year, I battled and was making end-game and mid-game adjustments, throwing multiple bullpens,” Verlander said. “You don’t want to think about it too much, but it’s hard to do when you’re trying to find something to make it click. But it was a good time to find it here this last month.” A year after winning the American League pennant, the Tigers will face Boston in the ALCS. The last time Verlander faced the Red Sox was in June. He lasted only five innings while his ERA jumped to 3.90. It was certainly an uncharacter-

istic season for the 2011 AL Most Valuable Player. He went 13-12, and the Tigers lost almost all of his no-decisions. Detroit went 14-20 in Verland-

er’s starts, and he was overshadowed by teammate Max Scherzer, who went 21-3 and is a favorite to take this year’s AL Cy Young Award.

Manager Jim Leyland picked Scherzer to start the postseason opener — a move endorsed publicly by Verlander — but after Detroit fell behind in the series, Scherzer was needed in relief in Game 4. That left Verlander to pitch Thursday’s winner-take-all finale. A year ago, he shut out the A’s in Game 5 of the division series, and this was almost a carbon copy. Verlander allowed two hits in eight innings, striking out 10 in Detroit’s 3-0 win. “He always rises to the occasion,” Scherzer said. “You knew Game 5 he was going to bring it. He’s just so nasty. His fastball, his off-speed stuff … it’s remarkable.” Verlander also threw seven scoreless innings in a Game 2 loss to the A’s. He’s the first pitcher to go an entire postseason series without allowing a run, while throwing at least 15 innings, since Mike Hampton of the New York Mets in the 2000 NLCS, according to STATS. His dominance of Oakland has been staggering. Verlander allowed a leadoff homer to Coco Crisp in Game 1 of last year’s division series, and the A’s haven’t scored on him in the playoffs since. He’s held them

without a run for 30 straight innings in the postseason. “Sometimes a guy can really pitch well against a certain team and pitch five days later against somebody else and get knocked around. It’s hard to figure out,” Leyland said. “But when this guy has it going, he pitches well against everybody.” As recently as mid-September, Verlander still looked a bit shaky, but in his last two starts of the regular season, he threw six scoreless innings against Minnesota and six more against Miami. Neither of those teams has a potent offense, so it was hard to tell how much Verlander was really improving. Oakland, however, had no problem putting up runs — except when Verlander and Scherzer were on the mound. Those two right-handers were Detroit’s trump cards. “When we started the series we thought we had it set up right. We knew we had two choices in Game 5. We had to spend Max in Game 4, we had to do it, so that left Justin for Game 5,” Leyland said. “Justin rises to the occasion. I can usually tell by the look on his face and his demeanor prior to a game when he’s zeroed in and locked in, and he was locked in.”

Lakers downed HOMECOMING: Knights triumph in nonleague game on road FROM PAGE B1

FORT WAYNE — Lakeland lost a non-conference football game to Concordia 35-3 Friday night. The Lakers’ lone score came on Marco Olivares’ 30-yard field goal in the second quarter. Lakeland (6-2) only had 122 yards of total offense. Ball State-bound quarterback David Morrison completed 21-of-27 passes for 241 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Cadets (5-3). He also ran for a score. Jon Poore added 81 yards rushing on 18 carries for Concordia. Jacob Bickel had a 62-yard interception return for a touchdown. Lakeland sacked Morrison five times and picked him off twice. Evan Garretson had three sacks. Joel Miller and Taylor Raatz each had an interception.

The Knights (6-2, 4-2 NHC) tallied 329 yards on the ground from five players. Quarterback Bryce Wolfe had 46 yards, 36 of which came on a quarterback keep where he ran untouched after the defense bit on the dive fake. “I really think the offensive line played the best game I have ever seen them play tonight,” EN coach Luke Amstutz said. Even though New Haven still controls its own destiny in the Northeast Hoosier Conference, the loss puts the Bulldogs on the razor’s edge. It was New Haven’s first loss of the season (7-1, 5-1) and the Bulldogs face Homestead (5-3, 3-3) on Friday at home. A victory gives New Haven the outright title, but a loss creates a possible three-way tie atop the conference standings. Carroll (6-2, 4-2) also has a shot at the crown. East Noble will host Bellmont (4-4, 3-3) in the season finale for both teams.

The Knights will have to stop a very unique, rugby-style offense the Braves are known for, while avoiding overlooking the team from Decatur. “We are going to get nastier than we were tonight … It’s going to be great,” Mable said. “We have to come ready to play. You could tell we were not ready to play (in a loss to Norwell). We were not flying around to the ball. We had mental mistakes and pre-snap penalties, something we can’t do. If we come back next Friday and pull it out again, we can do it.” The “Roughneck Defense” and EN special teams forced five turnovers in the game. Dustin Mapes, Dylan Jordan and Landan Tackett picked off Vance Shearer passes. East Noble scored twice in 16 seconds midway through the third quarter when its kickoff team recovered an onside kick after a line drive at the New Haven front line.

HEIGHTS: PH will close regular season at Eastside FROM PAGE B1

“All of our starters are healed up and back with the exception of missing Joey Barry. But we saw a guy down with a bad ankle and our young guys went in and stepped up and set the pace. “We ran the ball, stopped the run and played well on special teams. We’re finally getting it done here.” The second half, saw the Panthers start off slower than in the first half. “In the locker room, I told them at halftime how would you like to be remembered. Find each other and get it done,” Royer said. And they did just that. The Chargers were more methodical during the second half despite being down 21-7 at the break. West Noble ran the ball and chewed up lots of time. Those runs came primarily from junior Payton Shrock. He continually cut into the Panthers’ defense, chipping away the yards. The Chargers drove down the field in the third quarter, netting 80 yards. Quarterback Waylon Richardson connected with Dillon Alexander for a six-yard scoring toss on a fourth down play to cut the deficit to 21-13.

In the final quarter, West Noble stopped Heights on downs as the defensive line forced pressure in the pocket and swatted away a pass at the line of scrimmage on fourth down. But the

Chargers got the ball back with little time left. West Noble could not move the ball in the closing moments. The Panthers reclaimed possession and took a knee to end the game.

But the drive stalled on a procedure penalty and when Eastside’s Ryan Liechty tackled Noe for a 10-yard loss on the next play. The Blazers pieced together a long scoring drive, going 68 yards over nine plays, capped by Dean’s 8-yard run on the second play of the fourth quarter to make it 26-6. When Central Noble went three-and-out on its

next series, Eastside put the game away with an eight-play, 83-yard drive, highlighted by two long runs by Dove and 20-yardplus passing plays to Dean and Lockhart. Terry Nickolson scored from the six with 5:13 to play, and Franz’s kick made it 33-6. Eastside finished with 436 yards of total offense. Dove completed 6-of-11 passes for 107 yards, and Dean completed 3-of-7 throws for 60 more.

Lockhart ended the game with four catches and 93 receiving yards. Dean carried 16 times for 144 yards and a pair of rushing scores. Renier had 76 yards on the ground, and Dove added 44.

At 4-2, realistic Notre Dame seeks strong finish SOUTH BEND (AP) — The magic of Notre Dame’s surprising run to the national championship game last season started fading long before this season began. The trouble started three months before the opening kickoff when news leaked that quarterback Everett Golson, who had helped spark the Irish to the title game, had been suspended for the semester by the university. That was quickly followed by news that blue chip recruit Eddie Vanderdoes was defecting to UCLA before signing up for his first class at Notre Dame. Then, during preseason practices, linebacker Danny Spond was forced to give up football after being struck for a second time by a paralyzing migraine headache. Coach Brian Kelly often talked of the margin between winning and losing being razor thin a year ago, when the Irish survived many a close call en route to an undefeated regular season. He said the margin this season is even thinner. And nothing illustrates that better than Notre Dame’s 37-34 victory over Arizona State last week that allowed the Fighting Irish to go into their off week with a satisfactory if not satisfying 4-2 record rather than 3-3 with a fan base in full-fledged panic. The players know the difference, regardless. “For us just mentally and with our schedule, 4-2 is a lot better than 3-3,” receiver TJ Jones said. “Leading into the

bye week, we needed to leave on a good note.” The Irish have won 11 national championships during their storied history, but are a quarter century removed from their most recent title — the longest drought ever. So how do the Irish measure success these days? Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said there are two parts to that answer: the Irish want to aspire to a national championship each year, but have to realize sometimes circumstances make it difficult. “That’s the way we engage


in the business,” he said. “Every year is going to be different and represent different potential, injuries, what your opponents are doing — a whole host of things come into play. What I’m looking for is, are we making week-to-week progress, quarter-to-quarter progress? Are we getting better? Are we developing the student-athletes? “That’s the only litmus test I have once we’re in the season.” Swarbrick sees progress in this year’s team, saying the win over Arizona State was the most complete effort by the Irish as

the offense, defense and special teams all contributed. He also sees year-to-year progress under Kelly, who signed a five-year contract just before the season started. With a national championship out of reach, and some difficult games on deck, the Irish will continue to push forward. They play host to USC on Oct. 19, and the regularseason finale is at Stanford, ranked No. 5 this week, on Nov. 30. With the Irish still a season away from gaining access to bowls with Atlantic Coast Conference ties, Notre Dame faces the prospect of earning a BCS berth or waiting to see which of the lower-level bowls are unable to fill their slots. But Kelly doesn’t think believe his players are looking that far down the road. “We just don’t get too far ahead of ourselves, because we are staying in the present,” he said. “And if we think about anything else but the next day of practice, we just would be putting ourselves in peril.” The Irish will start the season’s second half still searching for a balanced offense, a No. 1 running back and adjusting to life without starting middle linebacker Jarrett Grace. The replacement for Manti Te’o, Grace sustained a broken leg last week. And they’ll play the rest of the way on freshly installed grass, the third time this year that new sod is being installed at Notre Dame Stadium.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Winslow suspended 4 games FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was suspended without pay for four games by the NFL on Friday for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. Winslow, the team’s leading receiver with 17 catches, will immediately begin his suspension, meaning he will sit out the Jets’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. He will be eligible to return to the Jets’ active roster on Nov. 4, following New York’s game against New Orleans on Nov. 3. The Jets have a bye-week break after they play the Saints, so Winslow’s next opportunity to play would be on Nov. 17 at Buffalo.

Mansally suspended 2 games SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Real Salt Lake defender Abdoulie Mansally has been suspended for two games for a serious foul in the 15th minute of a game against Dallas midfielder Jackson. Mansally received a red card on the play Saturday. The players union submitted an appeal, but the MLS Disciplinary Committee’s decision was upheld. Mansally is suspended for two games, one for having received a red card and one imposed by the committee. He will sit out on Oct. 19 vs. Portland and Oct. 23 against Chivas USA.

Bears’ Williams to miss rest of season LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears middle linebacker D.J. Williams will miss the remainder of the season because of a chest injury. Williams ruptured his left pectoral muscle tendon during Thursday’s win over the New York Giants. Coach Marc Trestman was not sure on Friday how the injury occurred. Williams, signed in the offseason to help replace Brian Urlacher, left in the third quarter, the latest injury for a defense that’s had its share. The Bears visit Washington next week, and with Williams out, rookie Jonathan Bostic figures to start in his place.

Governor, others to sell pumpkins

Control poison hemlock in fall WEST LAFAYETTE — Crop and livestock producers with poison hemlock in their pastures, crops or ditches should consider treating the weed in the fall, a Purdue Extension weed specialist says. Poison hemlock is a biennial weed that is toxic to both livestock and humans, if is ELYSIA enough consumed. can be RODGERS Itidentifi ed by its finely divided, toothed leaves and white flowers. Its stems are hairless, have purple spots or blotches and can grow to 2-7 feet in height. “The weed seems to be spreading, becoming a more common occurrence in pastures, agronomic crops, fencerows and roadsides,� Bill Johnson said. “It can be difficult to control in the spring. It’s easier to control in the fall because it’s more sensitive to herbicides.� The plant growth and appearance is more visible in the spring, when the plants “bolt,� or elongate rapidly, and the white flowers bloom, so that’s when most people become concerned with it. But Johnson said there is active rosette formation of the weed in the fall. “Growers should really think about fall-applied herbicide treatments whether they’re treating their


pastures or fields going to corn or soybeans next year,� he said. “They should be treating them in the fall to control poison hemlock.� For control in grass pastures, he recommended using one of a couple of herbicides that contain triclopyr as an active ingredient. The good news for livestock producers is that while poison hemlock is considered to be most toxic in the fall, livestock usually won’t eat the plant if there are other options in the pasture. “Cows won’t usually eat poison hemlock, because this weed doesn’t taste as good as the more desirable pasture species,� Johnson said. “But if the pasture is limited in desirable forages, then there may be a situation where the cows will get hungry enough to eat the plant.� In corn or soybeans where poison hemlock is a nuisance, growers can try an aggressive tillage program to disrupt it. If a herbicide is needed for control in agronomic crops, Johnson recommended applying products containing dicamba. Farmers should be aware that some herbicides can damage legumes or other desired vegetation, so they need to double-check labels before applying them.

Soybean harvest A common sight throughout northeast Indiana is the harvesting of soybeans. At this farm near Ligonier, beans are loaded

from a harvester into a truck that will take them to one of the many grain buyers in the area.

INDIANAPOLIS —On Tuesday, Governor Mike Pence, Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann, their cabinet members and staff will sell pumpkins to benefit the Midwest Food Bank as part of the 2013-2014 State Employees’ Community Campaign (SECC). The Governor’s Great Pumpkin Patch will be held on the South Lawn of the Statehouse from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. They will be helping with the sale of pumpkins as well as cookies and apple cider, and the public is welcome to attend the event.

Falling feed prices helping hog farmers WEST LAFAYETTE — Hog production is returning to profitability as feed prices fall, and a reduction in slaughter numbers seems to show that producers are noticing, Purdue Extension agricultural economist Chris Hurt says. Major drought in 2012 ransacked the nation’s feed crops, sending livestock feed prices sky high and driving hog producers to quickly send animals to slaughter. With a large-yielding corn crop expected this year, feed prices have been decreasing, which has turned around the outlook for hog profits. “This year, the hog outlook is almost the opposite of what it was last year,� Hurt said. “Feed prices, especially corn, have been falling sharply. The hog outlook is profitable, so producers are more likely to be retaining or building the breeding herd and weights are expected to increase as producers hold onto market hogs longer to gain profits on every pound.�

The most recent hog numbers available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, from the September Hogs and Pigs Report, showed that hog inventories are unchanged to somewhat larger compared to a year ago. “Yet slaughter in recent weeks has been very low, seemingly indicating a divergence from USDA’s reading,� Hurt said. Between mid-August and the end of September, slaughter rates dropped by an average of more than 5 percent and weekly slaughter rates have been down anywhere from 3 to 10 percent. One explanation for the perceived difference in USDA’s inventory numbers and slaughter rates could be related to animal deaths from the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, or PEDV. The USDA doesn’t track PEDV deaths, so Hurt said those numbers aren’t known for certain and it could be several months before hog markets are able to sort out the effects of the virus. Another explanation for seemingly low slaughter rates could be attributed to the way the industry and markets evaluate herd numbers with year-toyear comparisons. Hogs went to market at higherthan-normal rates in 2012 because high feed prices meant the cost of production was higher than producers could sustain. “What is being viewed as a very low slaughter in recent weeks might be due to an aberration in the slaughter numbers a year ago,� Hurt said. “The unusually high slaughter in the late-summer of 2012 was being driven by the drought. Record-high feed prices and large anticipated

Pork producer to speak to animal science students WATERLOO — DeKalb High School students will hear how are farmers using innovation and technology to grow healthier food and the impact food, animal care and the environment on Thursday, Oct. 17, when Rebecca Schroeder of Whiteshire Hamroc in Albion speaks to the animal science class. Titled “Modern Animal Agriculture and Pork Production,� the talk by Schroeder will highlight how ongoing advancements in agricultural science are helping farmers raise better food while using fewer natural resources than ever before. “Farmers who raise pigs have been able to make great progress in animal health, food safety and protecting the environment,� said Schroeder. “And farmers know they must always keep learning and working to get better at what they do.� Farmers now use 41 percent less water and 78 percent less land to raise pigs than they did 50 years ago, she said. “Modern barns, a focus on nutrition and animal care mean pigs live healthier lives than ever before,� said Schroeder. “And, healthy pigs mean healthy food. For example, pork tenderloin today is as lean as a skinless chicken breast and is certified by the American Heart Association as a heart-healthy food. I’d like to thank DeKalb High School for giving me an opportunity to share with these students what farmers are doing to make sure safe and healthy food gets to their dinner table today and in the future.� Schroeder is one of more than 3,000 pork producers in Indiana. She said Indiana’s pork industry contributes more than $3 billion to the state’s economy each year. losses provided a grave outlook for the industry, and some producers began to adjust.� Those adjustments included an increase in sow slaughter and, in some cases, total-herd liquidation a year ago. Now that the outlook has improved, breeding herd expansion has likely started and hogs are being held to higher weights. These factors mean that fewer animals are headed to market right now and prices have strengthened. “Given low slaughter numbers, cash prices of

hogs have been sharply higher than in the same period in 2012 when they averaged $55 per live hundredweight,� Hurt said. “With lower slaughter this year, they have averaged about $68 since mid-August.� Higher cash hog prices combined with lower feed costs are the important drivers for a profitable outlook over the next 12 months. Hurt said eastern Corn Belt live-hog prices are expected to average in the mid-$60s in the final quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014.

Poor corn stalks reported WEST LAFAYETTE — Stalk health is poor in many Midwestern cornfields, meaning growers might need to take a “triage� approach when deciding which fields to harvest first, says Purdue Extension agronomist Bob Nielsen. Drought conditions during corn grain fill caused much of the affected corn

a combine difficult and ultimately lead to yield loss. “There are a lot of fields vulnerable to storms, so growers need to prioritize the health of their fields for harvest,� Nielsen said. “When we start harvesting corn in earnest, we need to get the weakest fields out the earliest.� While stalk breakage is easily seen when scouting fields, identifying stalks prone to lodging can be harder. The best way to identify compromised stalks is to pinch the lower stalk internodes to see if they collapse from the pressure. In some instances, Nielsen said pushing stalks out of the way when scouting is enough to make weak stalks fall over. “Fields and hybrids at high risk of stalk breakage should be harvested as early as possible to minimize the risk of significant mechanical harvest losses,� he said. “Recognize that hybrids can vary greatly for late-season stalk quality, even if grown in the same field, due to inherent differences for late-season plant health or resistance against carbohydrate remobilization when stressed during grainfill.�



German groom forgets bride at gas station

New Jersey fights order to legalize same-sex marriage TRENTON, N.J. — A single judge should not be able to force New Jersey to recognize gay marriage, Gov. Chris Christie’s administration said in a court filing Friday. The argument is included in a brief the state submitted in support of its emergency appeal made a day earlier after a state judge refused to delay her order that New Jersey legalize same-sex marriage as of Oct. 21. “It is in the public interest that such a profound change, if it is to occur, take place not because a single judge — no matter how diligent, thoughtful, and thorough — ordered it, but rather because the Supreme Court, the ultimate arbiter, has deemed it necessary,” the state Attorney General’s Office said in its brief. “To overhaul such an ancient social institution prematurely, precipitously, or in a manner ultimately deemed unnecessary would injure not only the public interest, but the State that represents this interest.” Same-sex marriage has been a political and legal issue in New Jersey for more than a decade, but it’s probably never had the urgency it has now. A group of couples plus the gay rights group Garden State Equality sued in July in an effort to get the state to recognize gay marriages in light of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that cleared the path for the federal government to deliver marriage benefits to gay couples. Judge Mary Jacobson ruled in their favor last month. Now, the administration of Christie, a Republican and possible 2016 presidential candidate, is appealing both the overall ruling and Jacobson’s decision on Thursday not to delay the due date.

Montana oil site plagued by drugs BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The booming Bakken oil patch that’s given a major boost to U.S. energy production has emerged as a new front in the fight against drug trafficking. Organized crime rings are popping up in the Northern Plains, with traffickers sensing opportunity in the thousands of men and women lured there by the hope of a big paycheck. Law-enforcement officers across the region have teamed up to crack down on the trafficking, netting one of their most significant indictments so far this week — a dozen drug arrests in Montana and four in North Dakota. Authorities say more arrests are in the works as part of investigations conducted through an interagency partnership that will be announced Friday. But with drug offenses, violence and property crimes on the upswing, they face an uphill climb to reduce the spiking crime rate.

BERLIN (AP) — A German couple’s marriage got off to a rocky start when the groom forgot his bride at a highway gas station on the way home from their honeymoon, only noticing she was missing after hours had passed. Police said Friday the couple was heading home to Berlin from France when the man pulled over near the central town of Bad Hersfeld late Thursday to fill up their van. The woman had been sleeping in the back but got up — unbeknownst to the man — to use the toilets and he drove off before she returned. Only after 2 ½ hours on the road did he notice she was gone and called police, who said she was patiently waiting.



Investigators take samples from sand near a part of a missile that was suspected of carrying chemical agents, according to activists, in the country-

side of Ain Terma, Syria. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, a watchdog group, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize Friday.

Chemical weapons group awarded Nobel Peace Prize BEIRUT (AP) — The watchdog agency working to eliminate the world’s chemical weapons won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday in a powerful endorsement of the inspectors now on the ground in Syria on a perilous mission to destroy the regime’s stockpile of poison gas. In honoring the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the Norwegian Nobel Committee said “recent events in Syria, where chemical weapons have again been put to use, have underlined the need to enhance the efforts to do away with such weapons.” The prize came 10 days after OPCW inspectors started arriving in war-torn Syria to oversee the dismantling of President Bashar Assad’s chemical arsenal. While world leaders and former Nobel laureates

praised the group’s selection, some in Syria lamented that the prize would do nothing to end the bloodshed, most of which is being inflicted with conventional weapons. “The killing is continuing, the shelling is continuing and the dead continue to fall,” said Mohammed al-Tayeb, an activist who helped film casualties after the deadly chemical attack in August that the rebels and the government have blamed on each other. The peace prize, he added, should have gone to “whoever helps the Syrian people get rid of Bashar Assad.” After focusing on such themes as human rights and European unity in recent years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee this time returned to the core purpose of the 112-year-old Nobel

Peace Prize — disarming the world. Founded in 1997, the OPCW had largely worked out of the limelight until this year, when the United Nations called upon its expertise. The OPCW’s selection caught many by surprise. It was widely expected that the peace prize would go to Malala Yousafzai, the 16-yearold Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban last October for championing education for girls. “She is an outstanding woman and I think she has a bright future, and she will probably be a nominee next year or the year after that,” said Nobel committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland. The peace prize committee has a tradition of not just honoring past achievements, but encouraging causes or movements that are still unfolding.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The future of U.S. involvement in Afghanistan after the last troops leave at the end of 2014 may depend on whether U.S. officials like Secretary of State John Kerry can allay Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s worries about sovereignty, Pakistan and the safety of Afghan citizens at the hands of Western troops. Kerry began urgent talks Friday with Karzai as an end-of-October deadline loomed for a security deal that would allow American troops to remain in Afghanistan after the NATO-led military mission ends next year. Kerry’s unannounced visit to Kabul comes as talks on the bilateral security agreement have foundered over issues of Afghan sovereignty despite a year of negotiations. Discussions have stalled over Karzai’s demand for American guarantees against future foreign intervention from countries like Pakistan and U.S. demands for any post-2014 residual force to be able to conduct counterterrorism and counterinsurgency operations. U.S. officials insist they are optimistic about a deal, but the continuing deadlock leaves it doubtful that any agreement will be reached by the deadline. If no deal is signed, there will be no U.S. forces in Afghanistan after 2014. They said uncertainty caused by the lack of a signed agreement by the deadline would make it more difficult to plan the next phases of withdrawal

from Afghanistan and could erode the resolve of NATO allies that are considering leaving troops there for training. Without the United States on board, it is unlikely that NATO or any of its allies would keep troops in Afghanistan. Germany has already indicated it will not commit the 800 soldiers it has promised. “That’s why we’re pressing,” said one of the officials traveling with Kerry. However, the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly preview Kerry’s discussions with Karzai, stressed that Kerry is not expecting to clinch an agreement during his visit. Instead, the trip, which Kerry and Karzai set up in an Oct. 5 phone call, is meant to build momentum for the negotiators who will continue their talks after Kerry departs, the officials said. The atmosphere surrounding the talks has been soured by recent angry comments from Karzai complaining about the conduct of NATO forces. One possible reason for the complaints could have been the capture of a senior Pakistani Taliban commander by U.S. forces on the same day Kerry and Karzai last spoke. Pakistani intelligence officials, Pakistani Taliban and Afghan officials said Latif Mehsud was arrested by American forces as he was driving along a main highway. Karzai saw the move as an infringement on Afghan sovereignty.

States work to get national parks open SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Obama administration’s willingness to reopen national parks shuttered by the government shutdown came with a big caveat: States must foot the bill with money they likely won’t see again. So far, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota, Arizona and New York have jumped at the deal. Governors in other states were trying to gauge Friday what would be the bigger economic hit — paying to keep the parks operating or losing the tourist money that flows when the scenic attractions are open. South Dakota and several corporate donors worked out a deal with the National Park Service to reopen Mount Rushmore beginning Monday. Gov. Dennis Daugaard said it will cost $15,200 a day to pay the federal government to run the landmark in the Black Hills. He said he wired four days’ worth of the donations on Friday. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state will pay $61,600 a day to fully fund Park Service personnel and keep the Statue of Liberty open. Arizona officials said a deal reached Friday will mean visitors should be able to return to Grand Canyon National Park on Saturday. In Utah, federal workers rushed to reopen five national parks for 10 days after the state sent $1.67 million to the U.S. government with the hope of saving its lucrative tourist season.

Zion National Park superintendent Jock Whitworth said staff members began opening gates and removing barriers and expected to have the park fully operational Saturday. “This is a practical and temporary solution that will lessen the pain for some businesses and communities in Utah during this shutdown,” Interior Department Secretary Sally Jewell said in a statement. It was welcome news for beleaguered shop owners in the small town of Springdale adjacent to Zion. Hotels have been vacant and rental and retail shops have seen sales plummet during the shutdown. “It’s going to be awesome,” said Jenna Milligan of Zion Outfitters, an outdoor gear rental shop. “A lot of businesses have suffered severely because of the government. I just hope it does stay open through autumn.” In Colorado, officials said a deal had been struck for the state to pay $360,000 to reopen Rocky Mountain National Park for 10 days to allow tourists to reach Estes Park. The visitors are needed to help the town recover from flooding. Just over 400 national parks, recreation areas and monuments — including such icons as the Grand Canyon and Yosemite — have been closed since Oct. 1 because of the partial government shutdown. More than 20,000 National Park Service employees have been


Visitors to Zion National Park take in the sights after the park opened on a limited basis Friday. Earlier, the Obama administration said it would allow

furloughed, and lawmakers from both parties have complained that the closures have wreaked havoc on communities that depend on tourism. Officials in some states were not happy about paying to have the parks reopened. In Arizona, Republican Gov. Jan Brewer balked at spending about $112,000 a day for a full reopening of the Grand Canyon. She said a partial reopening would be much cheaper while allowing tourists to visit and businesses to benefit. “The daily cost difference is enormous, especially

turned on their sides. A preliminary toll of more than 60 hurt tallied initially by authorities was subsequently revised downward by a hospital official, Tracy Fath. She told The Associated Press on Friday evening that dozens brought to a hospital by a school bus were subsequently

determined to be unhurt — despite an earlier account from an emergency official who said dozens on the bus had lesser injuries. “We’ve got 24 people who were treated” in the emergency room, Fath said by telephone from Davis Memorial Hospital in Elkins.

states to use their own money to reopen some national parks after a handful of governors made the request.

without assurances that Arizona will be reimbursed,” said Andrew Wilder, a spokesman for Brewer. In the end, Arizona agreed to pay the Park Service $651,000 to keep the Grand Canyon open for seven days. The $93,000 a day is less than the $112,000 the federal government had said was needed to fund park operations each day. In additional to state money, cash provided by the town of Tusayan, just outside the South Rim entrance, and private business would also be included in the funding.

At this time of year, the Grand Canyon draws about 18,000 people a day who pump an estimated $1 million a day into the local economy. The town of Tusayan, and area businesses have pledged $400,000 to help reopen the canyon, but Wilder said it was unclear if the Interior Department could accept private funds. Interior Department spokesman Blake Androff said Thursday the government had no plans to reimburse states that pay to reopen parks. But members of Congress introduced legislation Friday to refund the money within 90 days.

Woman anxious about leaving blanket behind DEAR ABBY: I am 19, and because of some traumatic events in my past, I’m afraid of the dark and sleep with my baby blanket. I went to counseling about it, but eventually stopped because it didn’t help. I haven’t had any real problems as a result of the issue because I live at home and my boyfriend has been supportive in accommodating my needs when I stay with him. Plus, I don’t need my blanket when I’m with him. My concern is about the upcoming semester. I will have to move to the main campus of my university in order to continue my education. This means I’ll be living in a shared dorm. The two times it came up during high school, I was teased mercilessly until something else came along. While I have reached the point where I can go without my blanket for a few nights, any longer




DEAR ABBY: What do you do if you like a teacher? Do you just hide it? He always comes to my table and I can’t focus because I get so distracted. I think he’s very good-looking. I’m 13 and he’s 23. What should I do? — CRUSHING IN CALIFORNIA DEAR CRUSHING: What you’re experiencing happens in countless classrooms and it’s perfectly normal. Unless you’re an accomplished actress, hiding your feelings would be like trying to smuggle dawn past a rooster. Function as best you can, and don’t stare at him because it could be embarrassing for him. If you want to impress him, be his top-achieving pupil. The strong emotions you’re feeling will fade once an attractive young man your age appears on the horizon. Trust me on that, because I’m speaking from experience.

Researchers look to slow ravages of ALS dementia. ALS generally strikes patients between the ages of 50 and 70. We don’t know what causes ALS. As a result, there is no way to prevent it. Some cases appear to be inherited. The weakness and wasting (atrophy) of the muscles involves the ASK arms and legs, breathing DOCTOR K. the muscles, and the muscles the throat Dr. Anthony of and tongue. The weakness Komaroff worsens over time. Eventually, people with ALS are trapped in their bodies, but completely alert. They understand what’s going on around them, including people speaking to

them. But when the disease progresses to the point where it withers the muscles of their throat and tongue, they cannot answer. As the disease progresses, a person may experience: • muscle twitching, cramps, stiffness, and muscles that tire easily; • slowed speech that becomes progressively harder to understand; • difficulty breathing and swallowing; choking; • weight loss because of muscle breakdown and poor nutrition caused by problems swallowing; • changes in the way the person walks. Eventually, loss of the ability to walk. There is no cure for ALS. People with the disease live an average of three to five years after symptoms begin. (The famous British physicist Stephen Hawking has a disease similar to ALS and has lived with it for 50 years. But apparently does not have ALS.)

DEAR DOCTOR K: Former Massachusetts governor Paul Cellucci recently died from complications of ALS. Can you tell me more about this disease? DEAR READER: ALS stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. You may know it as Lou Gehrig’s disease, named after the famous baseball player who suffered from it. There are many different kinds of brain cells. Some do our thinking, some move our muscles (when the ones that think tell them to), and other brain cells do other things (such as see and hear). ALS primarily causes a slow degeneration of the nerve cells that control muscle movements. As a result, people with ALS gradually lose the ability to control their muscles. In people with ALS, the capacity to think and remember things is affected only in fairly subtle ways, and may not be affected at all. ALS does not usually cause

and it starts to get to me. I don’t want to have problems when I move to the main campus because I’m already going to stand out for moving in the middle of the year, but I don’t know how to keep training myself to DEAR give up my ABBY blanket. — STILL SCARED DEAR Jeanne Phillips STILL SCARED: You might not have to. I have a suggestion that might be helpful, but it would require having your blanket converted into a “huggie pillow.” That way you can still sleep with it but it would no longer resemble a baby blanket.

Riluzole (Rilutek) is the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for ALS. It can prolong survival in some people. Medications may help to manage symptoms of ALS; pain medications and muscle relaxants may help with painful muscle tightness. Mechanical devices can make self-care easier for people with ALS. Examples include dressing aids and special utensils for eating. A cane or walker may help with walking. Patients can consider using a mechanical respirator if they become unable to breathe on their own. Artificial ventilation can help some patients survive for years, but many patients choose not to be kept alive under these conditions.
