Filling a void



What payback means … The roads in LaGrange County are a little cleaner. The National Military History Center in Auburn gets routine maintenance done. The Steuben County Council on Aging gets help with a recent renovation. The Humane Society of Noble County in Kendallville gets much-needed free labor. All of those entities, and more, are beneficiaries of community service workers in northeastern Indiana. Sentenced by judges to perform the service as part of the terms of their probation for mostly misdemeanor offenses or as a terms of home detention for

community corrections programs, the workers provide a real impact to nonprofit groups.

By the numbers In total, tens of thousands of community service hours are performed each year in northeastern Indiana. In DeKalb County, the No. 1 agency where community services workers was sent was the Auburn Street Department, with 1,156 hours served in the last fiscal year, according to DeKalb County Community Corrections executive director Kelly Knauer. The second highest total was 1,037 hours


Philanthropic, nonprofit groups benefit from community service workers at the DeKalb County Humane Society. The National Military History Center benefited to the tune of 875 hours. In LaGrange County, the big beneficiary was the LaGrange County Highway Department’s road crew at 1,752 hours through the first nine months of this year, according to information provided by Superior Court Judge George Brown. The Ark animal shelter had 435 community service hours during that same time period. Noble County does not track such year-round totals, but chief probation officer Stacey Beam said the Humane Society of Noble County, the LaOtto Fire Department and the Cole Center Family

YMCA are common places where community service is performed. Humane Society director Jennifer Getts said her organization averages approximately 200 community service hours per month. Other frequently assisted philanthropic groups include churches in the four-county area, as well as libraries. The area’s program coordinators say these groups have learned how the system works and frequently call to ask for help. “They want to be on our list,” Beam said. “They have a real need for that. A lot of these places depend on community service SEE SERVICE, PAGE A8

Shooter gunned for TSA

Jesus statue arises in war-torn Syria BEIRUT (AP) — In the midst of a conflict rife with sectarianism, a giant bronze statue of Jesus has gone up on a Syrian mountain, apparently under cover of a truce among three factions in the country’s civil war. Jesus stands, arms outstretched, on the Cherubim mountain, overlooking a route pilgrims took from Constantinople to Jerusalem in ancient times. The statue is 40 feet tall and stands on a base that brings its height to 105 feet, organizers of the project estimate. That the statue made it to Syria and went up without incident on Oct. 14 is remarkable. The project took eight years and was set back by the civil war that followed the March 2011 uprising against President Bashar Assad. Christians and other minorities are all targets in the conflict, and the statue’s safety is by no means guaranteed.

Parkview Noble community nurse Leshia Howell, RN, performs a vision screening on a West Noble

Elementary School student in Ligonier.

Community nurse serves schools BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — Parkview Noble Hospital’s community nurse helps school nurses with preventive screenings and health education. Parkview Noble is the only community hospital outside Fort Wayne with a nurse in this position, said Leshia Howell, RN, the current community nurse working with school-age children in Noble County’s school districts. “When I see how busy the school nurses are and realize how I can help, especially with preventive measures and screenings, I am proud to be helping out this way in Noble County,” she said. Howell recently completed nearly 1,600 vision screenings at the schools. From these screenings, 211

students were referred for further eye examination. The state requires vision screenings for children in kindergarten or first grade, third and fifth or eighth grades. Howell screens all those age groups as well as any child suspected of having a vision issue. She uses a small, hand-held unit, PediaVision, that screens both eyes at the same time and provides a complete refraction assessment. The screening looks for seven different visual defects including near-sighted, far-sighted and astigmatism. Students receive either a pass or a referral. Beginning Monday, Howell will partner with the Noble County Board of Health to offer Flu Mist immunizations in all schools in Noble County. Forms for parents should be coming home with the children.

“It’s really important we vaccinate as many kids as possible in the school setting,” she said. “This will help keep them healthy during flu season, keep them in school and help prevent the spread of flu.” Later in the school year Howell, will offer asthma education to schools with students who need this outreach. In the summer she teachers Star Sitter classes at Parkview Noble. Before becoming the community nurse, Howell was a clinical educator and an emergency room nurse educator for Parkview. Parkview Health pledges that all Parkview facilities give back to their communities by way of community involvement, financial support and health resources, said Julie Buttgen, Parkview Noble’s community relations specialist.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The suspect accused of opening fire inside the Los Angeles airport was determined to lash out at the Transportation Security Administration, saying in a note that he wanted to kill at least one TSA officer and didn’t care which one, authorities said Saturday. It’s not clear why Paul Ciancia targeted the agency, but the note found in his duffel bag suggested the 23-year-old unemployed motorcycle mechanic was Ciancia willing to kill almost any officer he could confront with his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. “Black, white, yellow, brown, I don’t discriminate,” the note read, according to a paraphrase by a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly. The suspect’s screed also mentioned “fiat currency” and “NWO,” possible references to the New World Order, a conspiracy theory that foresees a totalitarian one-world government. Terminal 3, the area where the shooting happened, reopened Saturday afternoon. Passengers who had abandoned luggage to SEE SHOOTER, PAGE A8

Legislators want voters to decide on same-sex marriage BY AARON ORGAN

INDIANAPOLIS — When the 118th General Assembly reconvenes at the Statehouse in January, it will have hundreds of bills and measures to consider passing into law. Noteworthy among them will be a bill to amend the state constitution that essentially would ban same-sex marriage in Indiana. While the Indiana Constitution currently states that marriage is a man-and-woman status, House Joint Resolution 6 specifically defines marriage as strictly between a man and a woman. It refuses to recognize gay marriages or civil unions, and prohibits future legislatures from passing a law allowing same-sex marriage

or allowing legal protections for unions or domestic partnerships. It calls for the change to go before voters in a statewide referendum on the November 2014 ballot. The issue has launched a firestorm of opinions from both sides. Recently, Indiana University and the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce joined two major corpora- Ober tions, as Columbusbased manufacturer Cummins and Eli Lilly and Co. of Indianapolis in opposition to HJR6. Grassroots campaign Freedom Indiana has organized across the state to fight the measure.

The ban passed the Indiana House and Senate in 2011. By law, a proposed amendment to the state constitution must pass in consecutive elected legislatures without any changes to its draft. It then must go before the people in the form of a referendum, and if it were to pass by popular vote, the constitution would Smaltz be amended. Two issues exist, though. This is a new General Assembly, with a load of first-time lawmakers and fresh ideas and no promises to entertain a previous legislature’s work. And if it comes down to it, local legislators seem

bent on letting the people decide this matter. House District 52 Rep. Ben Smaltz, R-Auburn, said there is no guarantee HJR6 will be introduced, as no representative has stepped up to carry the bill thus far. Smaltz said even if it is introduced, he is not sure it will make it out of a committee session without tweaks that would kill it. That’s why Smaltz, who is finishing his first year in the General Assembly, declined to say which way he would vote on it, saying he can’t formulate an opinion until he has the document in front of him to read and available for his constituents to read. Smaltz did say he’s in favor of the matter going before voters SEE MARRIAGE, PAGE A8





Kokomo hub of gas whiplash KOKOMO (AP) — Local gasoline prices are swinging up and down ever more drastically, a result of a national fuel system that is operating with a shrinking margin for error. Jumps of 20 cents per gallon or more in a single day are becoming more common, for example, according to an AP analysis of daily and weekly price changes at 120,000 U.S. gasoline stations tracked by Sixty-three times this year at least one U.S. metro area has seen such a change. Like the 24-cent increase Decatur, Ill. drivers saw on Jan. 26, or the 24-cent increase in Superior, Wis. on April 30, and the 28-cent increase in Henderson, Ky. on Sept. 19. Not since 2008 have there been so many 20-cent changes. Last year those happened 58 times. In 2011 they happened just 21 times, and in 2010 just 7 times. Nowhere is it more frustrating to buy gas than in Kokomo, a flat, unassuming blue collar city surrounded by farmland 45 miles north of Indianapolis that regularly sees 10-cent or 20-cent price changes in a single day. On average, the price changes 5 cents there every day and 16 cents every week, the highest in the nation, according to Jim Brooks, who works at a Chrysler transmission plant

in town, does his best to fill up elsewhere. “If I don’t have to buy gas in Kokomo, I don’t,” he said recently at Manjas Marathon station in Kokomo during a lunch break. He bought a soda and some chips, but not gasoline. “There’s more and more feast or famine,” says Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service and The problem, analysts say, is a fuel system increasingly vulnerable to short-term shocks. That’s because refiners try to keep stocks of gasoline low to save money, just as other manufacturers aim to operate on a “just-in-time” inventory schedule. The nation has about 26 days’ worth of gasoline demand in storage, compared with 30 to 40 days’ worth during much of the 1980’s and 1990’s, according to the Energy Department. Also, there are 143 operating refineries, about half the total from 1980, so, if one has a problem, supplies quickly drop. That price whiplash has a cost. Spikes in gasoline prices are more damaging to the economy than a slow rise in prices because they undermine consumer confidence, economists say. Drivers may be pleasantly surprised when prices slide lower, like they have recently — the national average is at $3.28, its lowest

level of the year. But they don’t know when the price might bounce back up, and increases are almost always sharper than decreases. That makes it harder to budget for the daily commute, or know whether dinner out or a new appliance will be affordable. These dramatic local price swings are happening despite relatively stable oil prices and a national average gasoline price that has hovered around $3.50 per gallon for three years. In 2008, the last time local prices were this volatile, oil spiked to $145 a barrel in July, then plunged below $40 in late December as the global financial crisis sent energy markets reeling. The national average gasoline price ranged from $1.62 to $4.11 a gallon. Gas station owners set their prices based on how much it cost to buy the last shipment of wholesale gasoline, how much the next shipment will cost, and what competitors are doing. Stations typically make very little on gasoline, because they set the price as low as possible to attract people into their more profitable convenience stores. The price they pay for wholesale gasoline is determined by deals between refiners and distributors that are usually based on benchmarks set on exchanges.


from beams that once supported Angola High School’s gym, including the sliding doors at right.

Barb Hanselman, Stan Yoder and Luke Yoder stand in Hanselman’s kitchen, which features custom woodwork made

Area home holds local lore BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — If walls could talk, Barb Hanselman’s new house would be cheering with hundreds of excited voices. The Hanselman family settled on an 80-acre farm southeast of Angola in 1863. Over the years, more land was added and the homestead became a Steuben County fixture. The road was named Hanselman Road. A big red barn still proudly displays the Hanselman name. While the property has been portioned off, Barb kept a 60-acre addition from 1869 that features rolling hills, woods and a portion of Pigeon Creek. On it, she built a home incorporating not just her family’s history, but pieces of Angola’s history as well. Her father, the late Tom Hanselman, took custody of the beams that supported the old Angola High School gymnasium when it was torn down in 1961. The gym was used not just by Angola athletes, but by Tri-State College. A beam used as a support in the home still bears the trace of the letters “TROJ,” probably a tribute to the Tri-State nickname, the Trojans. Around a dozen beams remain. One has been gifted to the family of Don “Bud” Fulton, a 1944 Angola High School graduate whose name is carved in it. Another local name etched on the beam is that of Red Boyer. Stan Yoder of Yoder Construction, which built the Hanselman home, said

The Angola High School gym, demolished in 1961, was in downtown Angola where the Steuben Community Center is.

he talked to people who remember the old gym. It had an upper story for seating over the gym floor. “They were telling me what it was like up there because the whole thing would shake,” Yoder said. At around 16 feet long and 9 1/2 by 7 inches thick, the beams were heavy and unwieldy, and when the gym was razed, the crew was looking for something to do with them. Tom stored them in a barn for more than 50 years. Barb remembers her father pointing them out, saying, “Here they are. Don’t forget about them. You may want to use them some day.” After he passed away three years ago, Barb decided she wanted to put the beams to use. When construction started on her house, Gregg Jackson took 17 beams first to a car wash and hosed them down, then to be cut at an Amish saw mill. It took three men to carry each beam and a trailer to move them. Steve Clark of Clark Millworks planed and

polished planks made of the beams for the kitchen ceiling. Jackson made custom sliding doors between the kitchen and a study. The beams themselves appear prominently as part of the overall architecture. Luke Yoder of Yoder Construction oversaw the building of the house, which includes stair steps made from the beam planks. Barb called it an “engineering marvel,” using metal brackets created by Jeff Counterman of Steuben Fabricating and Engineering. A message board, bench and other accents use finished wood cut from the beams. There is more to come, as the fireplace features a wooden frame that will include some custom work to add more of the warm antique glow that carries throughout the Hanselman home. Another throwback is the garage, shaped like a red barn and adhered to the side of the white, farm-style house. “That’s the thing I like the best, is the shape of the barn,” said Barb.

Schools: Enrollment declines reflect students’ return to work BY DOUG LEDUC


Construction crews work on repair and maintenance to the Pokagon State Park toboggan run tower, preparing it for an opening Nov. 29.

Pokagon toboggan run gets an upgrade LAKE JAMES — More than $100,000 in reconstruction on the Pokagon State Park toboggan run tower and the slide’s refrigeration system has been done prior to the start of this year’s season. For several weeks, contractors have been active with repairs and preventive maintenance on the park’s refrigerated toboggan run tower. The run is just one of two in the Midwest and the only refrigerated toboggan run in Indiana. It will open Nov. 29, the day after Thanksgiving, said Fred Wooley, Pokagon’s interpretive naturalist. This is the first major work done on the tower since the metal-framed structure was built in 1974, said Ted Bohman, park manager.

School districts get safety grants Eight school corporations in the four counties of northeast Indiana will receive a combined $302,700 for school resource officers or security equipment. Four schools received maximum $50,000 grants. Each school corporation must use its own funds to match its grant. A breakdown of state grants to local school corporations: DeKalb County Central United School District, $50,000; Garrett-Keyser-Butler Community School District, $50,000; Central Noble Community Schools, $50,000; East Noble School Corp., $25,000; West Noble School Corp., $50,000; Fremont Community Schools, $34,500; Hamilton Community Schools, $35,000; and MSD Steuben County, $43,200.

DeKalb EMS units need new home AUBURN — County officials are considering an early proposal to consolidate the Garrett and Auburn EMS hubs into a single site at a new building west of Interstate 69. EMS head Randy Fox approached the DeKalb County Council Monday to pitch a plan to build a new EMS building t, likely near S.R. 8. The 12,000-squarefoot building would include six garage bays, room to sleep four people, a training room and offices. Within a year, DeKalb Health hospital has planned a major renovation of space around the current building that houses Auburn’s EMS station. Miller’s Merry Manor, which houses the Garrett EMS unit, has planned a future expansion that likely will include the area now occupied by EMS. The projects would leave the two EMS units effectively homeless.

Two states meet on meth battle plan KENDALLVILLE — Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller joined with state Sen. Sue Glick, R-LaGrange, and Noble County Prosecuting Attorney Steve Clouse to discuss methamphetamine enforcement with officials from Ohio Thursday at Parkview Noble Hospital in Kendallville. Representatives from LaGrange, DeKalb, Steuben and Noble counties and the Indiana State Police joined

the group for a closed-door meeting at the hospital. Health care professionals also were invited.

Youth For Christ sets merger meetings AUBURN — Youth For Christ leaders have scheduled two town-hallstyle meetings to explain the merger of Northeast Indiana Youth For Christ and Fort Wayne Area Youth For Christ and answer questions: • Monday at the First Church of God, 777 N. Detroit St., LaGrange, and • Wednesday at the Auburn Youth for Christ building, 1600 S. Grandstaff Drive, Auburn. Both meetings are scheduled to run from 7-8 p.m., with doors opening at 6:45 p.m. The two YFC chapters recently announced their plans to merge. Northeast Indiana YFC serves DeKalb, LaGrange, Noble and Steuben counties, with headquarters in Auburn. Fort Wayne Area YFC serves Allen, Whitley, Wabash and Huntington counties.

State considers removing bridge ALBION — The Indiana Department of Transportation sought input Monday on the idea of removing the Northport Road bridge over S.R. 9. Reaction to the proposal ranged from people recommending no decision be made until after new developments to Rome City officials expressing strong opposition. INDOT representatives Benjamin B. Shaffer and Jason Kaiser said the proposal is not officially in place. Expense is prompting the state to consider removing the state-owned bridge, Shaffer said. The proposal calls for removing the bridge and making Northport Road a T-intersection on the east side, Shaffer said. The existing access road, also istate-owned, would remain in place as the access to S.R. 9 from Northport Road west of S.R. 9. The earliest the plan would be implemented would be 2017, Kaiser said.

Loss of older students thought to have re-entered the work force contributed to enrollment declines at northeast Indiana’s two largest institutions of higher learning, but new programs helped increase enrollment at some of the area’s smaller colleges and universities. Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne began this fall semester with 10,412 undergraduate and graduate students, which was down 8 percent from a year earlier when there were 11,333. The university also looks at the credit hours for the classes in which those students were enrolled, and that figure fell MIKE MARTURELLO 6.5 percent to 120,988.

KENDALLVILLE — “A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart.” Eric Brandgard retired in 2008 from the East Noble School Corp. after 37 years as a teacher, coach and administrator. He touched the minds and hearts of thousands of students. “Teaching was his passion,” said his wife, Patsy. “He was always so proud when students would approach him that he may have had years ago and tell him the impact they felt he made on their lives.” Mr. Brandgard, 64, of Kendallville passed away Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013. After graduating from Indiana Central College in 1971, he started his teaching career at Avilla Middle School. He taught social studies at Avilla and Rome City middle schools, coached wrestling, football and track at the middle schools and football at the high school. He was athletic director for a period of time and an assistant principal for seven years. “He was Mr. B to his students, and Coach B to his players, and earned the respect of everyone because he cared for his students,” the Rev. Brett Frymier said at Mr. Brandgard’s funeral. Mr. Brandgard believed good teachers taught their students not

only academic skills, but also life lessons such as being kind to others, and good teachers offered a listening ear that some students didn’t get at home. “I saw him and a student after a play at the high school both break down when meeting,” said Patsy Brandgard. “He just loved teaching and the opportunity it gave him to help students in so many ways.” His students loved him, too. Mr. Brandgard taught Jessica Johnson social studies at Avilla Middle School. “He was so much more than a teacher,” she recalled. “He was a mentor. I had many talks about my future, and he gave me some of the best advice I have ever gotten concerning my academic career path. I will never forget him.” Morgan Combs remembered when Mr. Brandgard was assistant principal at Rome City Middle School, saying, “He was firm, but he was fair and treated all students really good.” Retired East Noble teacher and administrator Jim Taylor and Mr. Brandgard rode to Rome City Middle School together each day in the mid 1970s. “It was an enjoyable time working together and sharing our lives,” said Taylor. “Eric taught life lessons and used them as teachable moments.” Laura Knapp Marshall, a family

acquaintance and friend, said Mr. Brandgard had a gift for preparing his students for life’s experiences. Mr. Brandgard’s son, Dane ,said his father genuinely enjoyed the people he worked with. He always felt he was just one part of a team helping kids, and that no one person was any more valuable than the next. The Rev. Dr. Dan Barker, who spoke at his funeral, described Mr. Brandgard as a wonderful husband, a great dad, a dear friend and a caring teacher and coach. He loved and adored his grandchildren and supported them in their various activities. “My dad was a great dad,” said Dane. “He taught me how to throw a football, how to throw and hit a baseball, and helped me learn to ride a bike. He also passed on to me a love of reading, whether it was a book, a magazine or a newspaper.” He described the positive influence his father had on others, saying, “He always tried to encourage people to become stronger, smarter, more confident and more caring, and would do what he could to help them accomplish their goals.” Mr. Brandgard was laid to rest in Lake View Cemetery, Kendallville. “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” — Benjamin Franklin

Myanmar have laid down their arms since a military dictatorship gave way to a nominally civilian government in 2011. Last month, during his first trip back to Thailand since leaving for Sweden in 2009, Luther said he would fight only if his people were hurt again. “It’s not fun to fight anymore, now that I’m afraid to die. No one wants to fight unless they have to, you know,” Luther said. The legend of the twins began to form in 1997, when Myanmar troops entered their village during a sweep of Karen territory. At the time, the rebel Karen National Union was in sharp decline. “We had to defend ourselves because we didn’t like anyone to hurt us,” Luther recalled. “We love our motherland, so we chose to fight. We got seven rifles from the KNU and there were seven of us. We used them to fight against the Burmese army. We prayed before we fought, and then we won.” They dubbed themselves God’s Army. The boys were rambunctious, but strict discipline was maintained, as well as a rigorous Christian routine. There was no liquor in their village and a church service was held at least once a day. Journalists were amazed when they traveled to their small village of Ka Mar Pa Law, far from any towns or even paved roads. Video showed the twins living what looked like a kid’s pirate fantasy, shooting tropical fruit off the trees and being worshipped by adult followers who carried

them around on their shoulders. Probably the most famous image of the twins was shot by Associated Press photographer Apichart Weerawong when they were 12. The tightly cropped portrait shows Luther with shaved forelocks and raised brows, insouciantly puffing on a hand-rolled cigarette. Johnny, with neatly parted and combed long hair, softly feminine face and a sad, soulful gaze, stands behind his brother’s right shoulder. A joint interview with the AP last month highlighted the very different lives the Htoo brothers have led since then. Luther appeared almost chic in a traditional Karen blouse over jeans, one silver hoop earring on his left ear and two on his right. Johnny wore an old button-down shirt several sizes too big, an evident charity hand-medown. He looked weary and nervous. Luther now lives in Götene, a town 335 kilometers (208 miles) west of Stockholm, where he studied economics, history and other liberal arts subjects and has worked several jobs, including caregiver for the elderly. While in Sweden, he married a Karen woman from another tribe and had a child with her, but they later got divorced, the child staying with the mother. “I like Sweden but it’s very cold. Cold and snow, but I like it there because the country is peaceful,” Luther said. “There’s no one shooting at each other and no one hurting each other.” Johnny eventually

settled down to work as a rice farmer but returned less than a year ago to the refugee camp in Thailand where he had stayed with Luther. He was shy during the interview and inclined to defer to his brother. Before departing Thailand last month, Luther tried to learn more about what happened to dozens of his comrades who disappeared after surrendering. “Their wives and children have been waiting,” he said. “It’s been 13 years. I think all of them are dead.” They may have been victims of a calamitous turn in God’s Army’s fortunes that came after it became enmeshed with an even more fringe Myanmar anti-government group. The so-called Vigorous Burmese Student Warriors seized the Myanmar Embassy in the Thai capital, Bangkok, in 1999. After a short siege, Thai officials arranged a getaway by helicopter for them to the Myanmar border area where God’s Army was based. Johnny and Luther took them in. But the student warriors were targets of two countries, Myanmar and Thailand, which lost face from the embassy takeover despite resolving it peacefully. Reportedly, Thailand began shelling the twins’ village to help corner the embassy raiders. Shambles turned to disaster when the student warriors and some God’s Army members crossed back into Thailand and seized a provincial hospital in Ratchaburi in 2000.




Home for Holocaust survivors sees last generation CHICAGO (AP) — Listen to the many harrowing stories of war, suffering and survival, all under one roof: On the third floor, there’s Margie. A prisoner of Nazi labor camps, she hauled backbreaking cement bags and was beaten with clubs. Sometimes, she had only a piece of bread to eat every other day. She weighed 56 pounds when she was freed. Down the hall, there’s Edith. Though pregnant, she miraculously avoided the gas chamber at Auschwitz. She lost her mother, father and husband in the camps. After liberation, she faced even more heartbreak: Her son died days after his birth. Up on the eighth floor, there’s Joe. As a boy of 10, he was herded onto a cattle car and transported to a concentration camp — the first of five he’d be shuttled to over five cruel years. These Holocaust survivors share a history and a home: a retirement community founded more than 60 years ago for Jews who’d been victims of Nazi persecution. For decades, it was a refuge for those who’d endured the living hell of Auschwitz, Theresienstadt, Mauthausen and other camps. And a haven, too, for those who’d fled before the dark night of German occupation fell over their homeland. In its heyday, the Selfhelp Home, as it’s called, bustled with Jewish refugees from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia, the dining room a babel of central European tongues. Hundreds were on a waiting list. But that was long ago. As time passed, the need for a special sanctuary faded. Others who had not endured the genocide moved in. Only 12 Holocaust survivors — the youngest in their mid-80s, the oldest 102 — remain. So do a few dozen other Jews who escaped Hitler’s reach, often leaving behind family as they started new lives in Kenya,


In this July 30 file photo, Holocaust survivor, 92-year-old Edith Stern, right, talks with a new resident in the cafeteria at the retirement community called Selfhelp Home, on the North Side of Chicago. Stern moved to Chicago in 1965 and joined the staff of Selfhelp,

developing an instant rapport with the other refugees. “The reason I wanted to work there was I could never do anything for my parents because they were killed,” she says. “These people could have been my parents ... I loved them and they loved me.”

China, Colombia and other distant lands. They’re now the last generation to bear witness to one of the greatest horrors of all time, a resilient community of friends and neighbors sharing what once seemed impossible: long lives. When they’re gone, their stories will be preserved in history. But for now, their voices still echo in these halls. Seventy-five years ago, Margie

Oppenheimer awoke with a Nazi pointing a rifle in her 14-year-old face. It was Nov. 9, 1938, Kristallnacht — the night of broken glass — when the Nazis coordinated a wave of attacks in Germany and Austria, smashing windows, burning synagogues, ransacking homes, looting Jewish-owned stores. They trashed the family’s apartment and small department store in Oelde, Germany.

Gay rights legislation gains bipartisan support WASHINGTON (AP) — Gay rights advocates from both parties are newly upbeat about the prospects for Senate passage of legislation that would bar employers from discriminating against workers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The outlook for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act reflects the nation’s growing tolerance of homosexuality and the GOP’s political calculation as it looks for supporters beyond its core base of older voters. The first test vote is Monday. “I think society continues to evolve on the issue of gay rights,” said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, a co-sponsor of the measure. “As more and more gay individuals are open about their sexual orientation, people come to realize that they are their neighbors, their family members, their

friends, their co-workers. That’s made a big difference.” Opinion polls underscore Collins’ assessment. A Pew Research survey in June found that more Americans said homosexuality should be accepted rather than discouraged by society by a margin of 60 percent to 31 percent. Opinions were more evenly divided 10 years ago. In a sign of the times, the anti-bias legislation has traditional proponents such as the Human Rights Campaign, the largest gay and lesbian advocacy group, plus the backing of a relatively new group, the American Unity Fund. That organization has the financial support of big-name Republican donors — hedge fund billionaires Paul Singer, Cliff Asness, Dan Loeb and Seth Klarman — and former GOP lawmakers Norm Coleman of Minnesota and Tom Reynolds of New York.

“Most conservatives believe people in the workforce should be judged on their merits,” said Jeff Cook-McCormac, a senior adviser to the fund, which has focused on gay rights initiatives in New Jersey, Minnesota, Rhode Island and Delaware. “They shouldn’t be judged on characteristics that are irrelevant in a productive employee.” Current federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, race and national origin. But it doesn’t stop an employer from firing or refusing to hire workers solely because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. The bill would bar employers with 15 or more workers from using a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for making employment decisions, including hiring, firing, compensation or promotion.



rashes and other ailments since he moved into the four-bedroom home purchased a decade ago for $39,900. His wife, Teresa, said she’s had two miscarriages and numerous unexplained cysts. “We knew it was Love Canal, that chemicals were here,” she said. But when she bought the house, she said she was swayed by assurances that the waste was contained and the area was safe. Six families have sued over the past several months. Lawyers familiar with the case say notice has

been given that an additional 1,100 claims could be coming. The lawsuits, which don’t specify damages sought, contend Love Canal was never properly remediated and dangerous toxins continue to leach onto residents’ properties. The main target of the lawsuits, Occidental Petroleum Corp., which bought the company that dumped the chemicals and was tasked by the state with monitoring the site in 1995, contends the waste is contained and that state and federal agencies back up those findings.

Light up: DC on pot fast track WASHINGTON (AP) — It took nearly 15 years after voters approved medical marijuana for it to become available in the District of Columbia, but the next major change to pot laws in the nation’s capital is on the fast track. The D.C. Council is poised to approve a bill that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of pot, and Democratic Mayor Vincent Gray announced last month that he supports it. He could sign the bill into law as

early as January. Some activists want the city to go further by legalizing, taxing and regulating marijuana as Colorado and Washington state do, and they’re considering a ballot initiative if the council doesn’t take that step. It’s a big change from a year ago, when there was no medical marijuana in the capital and elected officials weren’t talking about relaxing recreational pot laws. Now, there are three tightly regulated marijuana

dispensaries in the city, although there aren’t many patients yet. City leaders have long been cautious about pot, in part because Congress has the final say on what’s legal in the district. But with 17 states having some form of decriminalization and the Justice Department taking a hands-off approach to legalization in Colorado and Washington state, city leaders think Congress won’t be interested in fighting that battle.

Suits claim Love Canal still oozing


5 LB.

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — Thirty-five years after Love Canal’s oozing toxic waste scared away a neighborhood and became a symbol of environmental catastrophe, history could be repeating itself. New residents, attracted by promises of cleaned-up land and affordable homes, say in lawsuits that they are being sickened by the same buried chemicals from the disaster in the Niagara Falls neighborhood in the 1970s. “We’re stuck here. We want to get out,” said 34-year-old Dan Reynolds, adding that he’s been plagued by mysterious

So began seven years of terror that took Oppenheimer from the Riga ghetto — escaping mass killings by German squads — to a series of labor and concentration camps. She broke concrete, shoveled sawdust, laid bricks, glued U-boats. She fought hunger and fear, lice and typhus, repeating to herself: “I WILL be strong. I want to live.” One day at the Stutthof concentration camp in Poland, Nazis marched Oppenheimer and others naked into an open field for inspection. Those strong enough to work were directed to the right. Oppenheimer, who was emaciated, was ordered to the left with hundreds of older women. She was placed into new barracks and had the Roman numeral II scrawled on her left forearm. Death seemed inevitable. “I’m thinking this is the last time I will see the sun,” she recalls. That night at the camp two friends did the unimaginable: Without saying anything, they pulled Oppenheimer under an electrified fence to another side of the camp. She scrubbed off one number on her arm so she was no longer marked for death. She stayed in those quarters and at the next day’s 6 a.m. roll call, she tried to hide her skeletal, barely 5-foot frame behind a tall woman. “The commander said, ‘There is one person extra. Who IS that person? Come forward!’” Oppenheimer recalls, her high-pitched voice imitating his stern tone. “My face was hot. It was on fire. I thought if anybody sees me, they’ll know I am the one who isn’t supposed to be there.” An elderly woman was pulled from the line and dispatched to her death. “She was killed because of me, because I wanted to be free,” Oppenheimer says, her eyes clouding with tears. “And I feel guilty about that until this living day.”

Our View •

Thriving by working together As we enter the closing months of this year, it is good to reflect on how we can strive to better position Noble, DeKalb, Steuben and LaGrange communities to survive and thrive in the coming years. Several years ago the Heartland Center for Leadership ( created a list of “clues” to rural community survival. This list remains useful as we reflect upon individual and collective progress in our communities. 20 Clues to Rural Community Survival • Pride in history and heritage; • Belief that if something is worth doing, it is worth doing right; • In addition to brick and mortar investments, all investments are with an eye on the future; • Decision making by consensus; • Working together as a community for positive results; • Knowledge of how to build on strengths and minimize weaknesses; • Emphasizing local loyalty while understanding the competition; • Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of location and natural resources; • Organized public/private approach to economic development; • Key civic and business positions regularly held by people under age 40; • Women, minorities, youth and newcomers are welcomed into leadership circles and their ideas are treated as opportunities; • Strong support for education, with good schools the center of community activity; • Health care considered essential and smart strategies enable diverse methods of health care delivery; • Family activities include all generations; • Traditional institutions such as churches, schools and service clubs are integral to community life; • Leaders work hard to maintain and improve streets, sidewalks, water systems and sewage facilities; • Fiscal resources are used carefully; frugality is a way of life; • Technology resources are used well; • Outside help is sought with many competing for government grants and contracts for economic and social programs; • Conviction that each community’s destiny is in its own hands. Not included on this list, but something we feel is very important, is vibrant local media that facilitate ideas being shared among and discussed by a broad cross section of people. For example, the online Opinion areas of (editorials, columns and letters to the editor) are free for all to read and input their ideas. No print or online subscription is required to participate in this forum. Our corner of Indiana has a rich heritage. We are blessed to live in a good place in which to live, work and raise a family. But we must continually strive to do better. Things can never remain the same. We must continue to strive to move forward in the ways outlined above or else we will stagnate, losing the gains that we have made in the past, failing to attract new talent and unable to help our children bloom where they have been planted. OUR VIEW is written on a rotating basis by Grace Housholder, Dave Kurtz, Matt Getts and Michael Marturello. Publisher Terry Housholder is also a member of the editorial board. We welcome readers’ comments.

Letters • Courthouse hours, meeting times may lock out some people To the editor: I was supposed to participate Thursday in a vote center discussion meeting at the Noble County Courthouse from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. I normally work until 5 p.m., but due to the importance of this meeting, I took a short lunch and made arrangements to attend. Then, work happened, and I wasn’t able to leave as planned. I ended up arriving at the courthouse around 4:45 p.m., which should have been plenty of time to comment on a research paper that I had shared via email earlier in the day with the working group. I left my cell phone in the car, since I knew that I was not supposed take it inside. When I got to the door, the door was locked. I thought of calling someone that I knew was in attendance … but I remembered that no one had their phones. So I stood in the rain on Halloween watching moms and dads prepping for trick or treat at 5 p.m. in Albion. Families were pulling up to the courthouse to park. The one lady I saw had on her scrubs from work. I saw a dad take off a tie. They were rushing to pick up their kids after work and maximize their trick or treat time and family time. None of these moms and dads could have participated in a civic meeting at 4 p.m. on Halloween if they had wanted to. I wanted to and couldn’t anyway. I also thought that maybe that young dad in the tie might be good at business and make a great county councilman. He currently could not do that due to the fact that the county councilmen meet during the day … as do the county commissioners. Both the dad in the tie and the mom


The 4 p.m. closing time of the Noble County Courthouse and the meeting times of county government may prevent some working people from accessing services and/or becoming involved in county government.

in the scrubs may have a heck of a time getting property tax issues straightened out or other courthouse business … because the courthouse shuts at 4. Since I have been involved in politics, I have heard so many elected officials talk about reaching out to young people and trying to engage them in government. They wonder why they can’t get younger people to take these civic jobs — both the paid ones and the volunteer ones. I went back to my car to get the phone, so I could take a photo of the locked door. Here’s a news flash: We the working families of Noble County can’t participate under the current system. Unlock the front door. You never know who may come in.

Partisanship crippling efforts to correct Obamacare As Obamacare careens into its second month of implementation, the one conclusion I am coming to is that we may have lost the ability to govern ourselves. My faith in government is eroding like a sand castle on a Lake Michigan dune. In surveying the eroded leadership, partisan grandstanding, HOWEY polarization and POLITICAL policy sclerosis, REPORT U.S. Sen. Dan Coats told me last week that he is concerned Brian Howey by this loss of faith. Pew Research found only 19 percent trust the federal government, near an all-time low. “That’s a dangerous thing for democracy when you lose the opinion of people and institutions who sent you,” Coats observed. “That is a very dangerous thing.” In the decade leading up to the Affordable Care Act, I was personally confronted with my station on the “death spiral,” an insurance industry connotation for someone with a pre-existing condition they did not want to serve. We watched as businesses and local governments — large and small — grappled with escalating health costs. As a journalist, I’ve covered four separate chapters in health care reform. The first was Doc Bowen’s 1988 catastrophic health plan which President Reagan signed into law, and then as public opinion collapsed, Congress repealed. Five years later came First Lady Hillary Clinton’s complicated initiative that couldn’t muster support in Congress. It is fascinating that in its opposition

to HillaryCare, the conservative Heritage Foundation created another option, and after gathering dust on the shelf for almost a decade, Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney implemented what we now call “RomneyCare,” generally deemed a success. That became the template for Obamacare, which Heritage opposes with historic vitriol. Between the collapse of HillaryCare and the election of Barack Obama in 2008, little happened nationally to contain the escalating medical costs or to include the tens of millions of hard working Americans — be they business owners or individuals — who could not access the system. In this time span — the six years between 2001 and 2007 — Republicans controlled the White House and both chambers of Congress. All that was accomplished in this era was the greatest entitlement expansion since the Great Society — Medicare Prescription Plan D — essentially a component of President Bush 43’s reelection campaign. After a fiasco rollout, it has since been deemed a success. President Obama and Congressional Democrats controlling both chambers eventually filled this policy void in 2010, ramming through the Affordable Care Act on straight party line votes. What we have seen since has been the polarization of American politics and, now, the chaotic rollout of Obamacare. President Obama’s administration has not only botched the initial implementation of this sprawling reform with a dysfunctional website, but the president misled Americans into believing that they could stay on existing plans, though many of these plans are rip-offs. And we have watched Republican

Instead of separating the widely accepted successful portions of the law — covering people with pre-existing conditions, ending policy terminations for the sick — and correcting the flaws … partisans on both sides dug in.

• public servants — from our congressional delegation to Gov. Mike Pence (who could have championed market-based health care reform as a member of Congress from 2001 to 2012) — use their offices to undermine the reforms. Pence opted to put Hoosiers into the federal health exchange, instead of creating one of our own. A year ago, candidate Pence was saying, “I’ll fight for the right of every Hoosier to run our schools, buy our health care and build our roads the Hoosier way … To make Indiana the state that works, we must have a governor who’s willing to say yes to Indiana and no to Washington.” On virtually every other issue, Pence has been critical of federal government involvement. This time, it was a strategy to kill off the reforms. His Department of Insurance became a font of propaganda, inflating the potential costs of coming plans in a distorted and widely panned analysis. Congress refused to confirm an Obama appointee to direct the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services, which play a huge role in implementation. Indiana University

professor Aaron Carroll, who heads its Center for Health Policy and Professionalism Research, wrote in a column for CNN: “When (HHS Secretary) Sebelius tried to shift money from other areas to help do what needed to be done, she was attacked by Senate Republicans. At every step, Republicans fought measures to get money to put towards implementation.” Having passed on bringing a Republican-based solution to the health care dilemma the country faced, Bush, Pence and his colleagues did virtually nothing. And since the passage of the ACA into law — it is a “law” — they have used their offices to obstruct. Appearing before the Associated Press Managing Editors this past week, Pence urged journalists to join conservatives in suspending the law. Instead of separating the widely accepted successful portions of the law — covering people with pre-existing conditions, ending policy terminations for the sick — and correcting the flaws such as what constitutes full-time employment and coverage, and allowing insurers to sell across state lines, the partisans on both sides dug in. There is an abject, widespread collapse of leadership here. The U.S. Capitol has become nothing more than an oozing white pustule of festering and corrosive partisanship. An NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll revealed that 63 percent are willing to replace their own member of Congress. Little wonder voters are saying, “a pox on both your houses.” BRIAN HOWEY is publisher of the Howey Political Report, a weekly briefing on Indiana politics.

Ashley ran to Milan-style miracle in ’63 Tiny Ashley High School made Hoosier sports history 50 years ago, but not the way the Aces originally intended. “Our No. 1 goal was to win the state in basketball and repeat the trip that Milan made,” said Steve Grill of Hamilton, who was a senior at Ashley High in the fall of 1963. In story made famous by the movie “Hoosiers,” Milan High School won the Indiana high school basketball championship in 1954 with only 162 students enrolled. “That was fresh in our minds then,” Grill said. “That was the original goal.” Instead of matching Milan’s feat, Ashley’s athletes captured a state championship in cross country in 1963. Even smaller than Milan with approximately 32 students in its senior class, Ashley still ranks as by far the smallest school to run to a title. Like Milan, Ashley built on a near-miss in the preceding year. The Aces runners finished second at the state finals in 1962. Grill said that made the Ashley boys realize cross country could be more than just a way of getting in shape for basketball. The Aces’ coach, Dwight Graber, took the squad on a summer camping trip to Maine to

build teamwork and conditioning, said Jim Reinoehl, who now lives in Florida. “He was an innovator as well as having a good understanding of training techniques and strategy,” Grill said about Graber, who coached cross country, basketball and track. Most of the runners particiin all three DAVE pated sports Graber coached, adding KURTZ baseball as a fourth. “A lot of us grew up on the farm, so we did our farm stuff, too,” Reinoehl said. A handful of families contributed to the team. Reinoehl’s brother, John, ran on the state runner-up team in 1962 before graduating. Grill’s younger brother, Jon, was on the squad, and Fred and Bill McClish were twins. Steve Hartman, John Hamman and 6-foot-6 basketball center Jack Baumgardner made up the rest of the Aces. Graber had arrived at Ashley with basketball as his top priority.

In 1962, as soon as state rules permitted basketball practice, Graber drilled his runners in both sports each day. “When we were seniors, one of the things that Dwight decided is we would not have morning basketball practice,” Grill said. “We would focus on winning the state in cross country first.” For 1963, Graber scheduled early season meets against the state’s top teams to help his runners measure their progress. “He wasn’t just a coach. He was somebody who developed people,” Reinoehl said. “He was very strict on what he required his athletes to do, but he was also very fair.” On the big day, a caravan reported at 25 carloads trailed the Aces to the state cross country meet in Indianapolis. “It was a great thrill. We had a great following from Ashley,” Grill said. In the two-mile race, he added, “We were all going to run up front, and they were going to have to beat us.” Fred McClish finished eighth at the finals, with Reinoehl 15th, Steve Grill 22nd, Baumgardner 23rd and Hamman 41st for Ashley’s winning score — defeating West Lafayette by 15 points.


The 1963 Ashley High School cross country team won a state championship. In front, from left, are Jim Reinoehl, Jack Baumgardner and John Hamman. In back are Steve Hartman, Bill McClish, Steve Grill, Jon Grill and Fred McClish.

The following March, Ashley still held to the Milan dream. Using their speed to fuel a pressing defense, the basketball Aces reached the final of the regional at the Coliseum in Fort Wayne. It took Garrett, with its 7-foot pair of Jim Heitz and Chuck Bavis, to stop Ashley 62-59 in overtime. The Aces still had their state

championship to savor. “What an experience,” Reinoehl said Friday. “It didn’t seem like that big a deal, but as time goes on, it seems like a bigger deal to me.” DAVE KURTZ is the executive editor of KPC Media Group newspapers. He may be reached at dkurtz@kpc

Reversing the GOP ‘death spiral’ Fence Post: Where are the Monarchs? A Monday column by Neil Case (“Birds seem undecided about future weather”) sparked discussion on The Fence Post, KPC Media Group’s online forum, where HoosierHelen commented: “I frequently enjoy Neil’s bird stories and find them informative. His recent story about viewings of birds from his study window, the woolly worms, squirrels and butterflies is especially interesting to me. I’m not as informed as Neil on bird habits, however, I do want to share that I DID ONLINE see a woolly worm on my COMMENTS front porch a couple of days ago. It was a light tan in color completely. My and I commented at James Tew friend the time, ‘Does this mean a really mild winter?’ Also, I have noticed only ONE Monarch butterfly this entire summer. In the past my yard has always had such a heavy population of them that my attention was drawn primarily towards the non-Monarch butterflies so that I could try to find them on the internet. I did not see that one Monarch until two weeks ago.”

bigkneedgal agreed: “I noticed the Monarch population down considerably this year. I have around 7 or 8 acres of restored prairie land which contains hundreds of milkweeds of several varieties and they usually attract hundreds of Monarchs. Not this year. We saw perhaps a dozen. I fish the Detroit River often in the fall and typically spot dozens of Monarchs making their way back from Canada. I saw only five in four trips so far, and like you, one just last week, which is pretty late to see them.” If you have observations about area flora or fauna you would like to share, go to and select More > The Fence Post from the navigation menu to join the discussion.

Reader pans EMS merger

When Ronald Reagan won the White House in 1980, the electorate was 88 percent white. Last year, only 72 percent of the voters casting ballots for president were white, and by 2016, that number will plunge again. This trend poses an enormous problem for Republicans. As Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said on NBC earlier this year, “we’re in a demographic death spiral as a party.” But instead of recognizing COKIE ROBERTS that demographic reality, instead STEVEN ROBERTS of appealing to new voters, many Republicans are following a very different strategy: Stop them from voting. This strategy of exclusion has two elements. One is to oppose any path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants already in this country. The other is to make it more difficult for marginalized citizens — the poor, the elderly, the uneducated — to exercise their rights to vote. Both options might produce short-term benefits. If those newcomers don’t gain citizenship, they can’t vote. And a slew of new state laws — requiring photo IDs to vote, shortening poll hours, hindering registration drives — would clearly decrease the Democratic base. But in the long run, demography is destiny. Smart Republicans like Graham know that and are backing another option: inclusion, not exclusion. Welcome those new voters instead of driving them away. Start with immigration. Republican opponents of reform usually cast their position as a legal principle. Laws must be upheld. Violators must be punished. Citizenship is “amnesty.” But the underlying motive is politics, not principal, and Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho made that clear during a recent speech at the Heritage Foundation. “It would be crazy” for Republicans to negotiate with the president over an immigration bill, he warned, because “he’s trying to destroy the Republican Party” by enfranchising more Democratic voters. Exactly the opposite is true. The “crazy” course for Republicans is denying reality and opposing an immigration bill. As Graham says, “If we don’t pass immigration reform, if we don’t get it off the table in a reasonable practical way, it doesn’t matter who you run in 2016.” Sen. John McCain of Arizona made a similar point during the Senate debate over immigration earlier this year: “Passing this bill would not give us a single vote, but it would put us on the playing field where we can compete.” Republicans can compete.

... the “demographic death spiral” will eventually squeeze the life out of the Republican Party if they don’t take steps to reverse it.

• immigrants are Catholics with conservative social views; they are often small business people who identify with the Republican message of lower taxes and less regulation. George W. Bush made outreach to Latinos a major element of his campaigns and won 44 percent of the group in 2004, far above Mitt Romney’s 27 percent eight years later. Years ago, Cokie covered a naturalization ceremony in California, and both parties had set up registration tables outside the event. The GOP table was crowded by new citizens who explained, “I came here to make it. The Republicans are the party of winners and the Democrats are the party of losers.” But that advantage has been squandered by the party’s relentless hostility on immigration; the new laws making it harder to vote in many states are blemishing the Republican reputation as well. As in the immigration debate, supporters of restrictive laws say they are merely upholding a legal principle. They are necessary to root out voter fraud. But voter fraud is a myth. The real reason is maximizing political advantage. A federal appeals court judge, Richard Posner, wrote the majority opinion in a 2-to-1 ruling on an Indiana case that upheld ID laws; his decision was reaffirmed by the Supreme Court in 2008 and is often cited by Republicans as the legal justification for their legislative proposals. Posner recently recanted his decision, however, and said of the dissenting judge, “I think he was right.” That judge, the late Terence Evans, had directly pinpointed the real reason for the Indiana law, which had passed on a straight party-line vote: “Let’s not beat around the bush: The Indiana voter photo ID law is a not-too-thinly veiled attempt to discourage election day turnout by folks believed to skew Democratic.” Let’s not beat around the bush, either. Graham is right, the “demographic death spiral” will eventually squeeze the life out of the Republican Party if they don’t take steps to reverse it. But on two key issues, immigration and voter ID laws, the GOP is working against its own long-term interests. It’s alienating the very people it will need to win elections in the future.

Pakistan blames US for killing Taliban leader ISLAMABAD (AP) — The Pakistani government Saturday accused the U.S. of sabotaging peace talks with domestic Taliban fighters by killing their leader in a drone strike, as the militants began the process of choosing a successor. The rise in tension, even though the U.S. took out Pakistan’s No. 1 enemy, shows just how complicated the relationship between the professed allies can be. The two repeatedly have clashed over issues such as drone strikes and Pakistan’s alleged support for militants fighting U.S. troops in neighboring Afghanistan. The Pakistani Taliban leader slain Friday, Hakimullah Mehsud, was a ruthless figure known for a deadly attack on a CIA base in Afghanistan and a bloody campaign that killed thousands of Pakistani civilians and security personnel. The Pakistani army has launched numerous operations in the country’s northwest in a failed attempt to subdue the group, which aims to topple Pakistan’s democratic system and impose a harsh version of Islamic law. It also seeks an end to the country’s unpopular alliance with the U.S.

Pakistan’s government, which took office in June, has pushed peace talks with the Taliban as the best way to end the conflict, although many people are skeptical a deal is possible. The drone strike that killed Mehsud in the North Waziristan tribal area came a day before the government was to send a three-member delegation of clerics to the region with a formal invitation to start peace talks, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said. It never ended up going. Khan called the drone attack “murder” to the peace effort, but hoped the process could continue. He said he warned the U.S. ambassador previously that American drone strikes should not be carried out while Pakistan was trying to hold peace talks and no Taliban leader should be targeted. The government later summoned the U.S. ambassador to complain. When asked whether he thought the U.S. was trying to deliberately scuttle the peace process, the minister responded: “Absolutely.” “The efforts have been ambushed,” the minister said. He did not say what he felt the U.S. stood to gain but questioned: “Why

do they want us to be insecure?” Another prominent political leader, Imran Khan, whose party controls the government in northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, threatened to block trucks carrying supplies to NATO troops in Afghanistan over the strike. He said he would push the provincial assembly to adopt a resolution to block the supplies and would do the same nationally. “Dialogue has been broken with this drone attack,” Imran Khan said. The interior minister said as soon as Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif returns from abroad, a national security meeting will be convened to discuss U.S.-Pakistan relations and cooperation. He would not specifically address the threatened supply lines closure. Azam Tariq, the Pakistani Taliban spokesman in the South Waziristan tribal area, provided the first official confirmation of Mehsud’s death Saturday. “We are proud of the martyrdom of Hakimullah Mehsud,” Tariq told The Associated Press by telephone. “We will continue our activities.”

escape Friday’s gunfire were allowed to return to collect their bags. “When challenged, Los Angeles is ready and knows how to respond. This is one tough town,” said City Councilman Mike Bonin, whose district includes the airport. He praised airport police, saying they “saved untold lives” with a swift response that was “absolutely textbook.” As airport operations returned to normal, a few more details trickled out about Ciancia, who by all accounts was reserved and solitary. Former classmates barely remember him and even a recent roommate could say little about the young man who moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles less than two years ago. A former classmate at Salesianum School in Wilmington, Del., said Ciancia was incredibly quiet. “He kept to himself and ate lunch alone a lot,” David Hamilton told the Los Angeles Times. “I really don’t remember any one person who was close to him …. In four years, I never heard a word out of his mouth.” Ciancia, who was shot four times by airport police, remained hospitalized Saturday, but there was no word on his condition. He was wounded in the mouth

and the leg, authorities said. On Friday, Ciancia’s father called police in New Jersey, worried about his son in L.A. The young man had sent texts to his family that suggested he might be in trouble, at one point even saying goodbye. The call came too late. Ten minutes earlier, police said, he had walked into the airport, pulled the rifle from his bag and began firing at TSA officers. When the shooting stopped, one officer was dead and five other people were wounded, including two more TSA workers and the gunman himself. When searched by police, Ciancia had five 30-round magazines, and his bag contained “hundreds of rounds in 20-round boxes,” the law-enforcement official said. Authorities identified the dead TSA officer as Gerardo I. Hernandez, 39, the first TSA official in the agency’s 12-year history to be killed in the line of duty. Allen Cummings, police chief in Pennsville, a small blue-collar town near the Delaware River where Ciancia grew up, said he’s known Ciancia’s father — also named Paul — for more than 20 years. He said the father called him around midday Friday to tell him about texts his family had received. “There was some things in there that made his family

feel he may do harm to himself,” Cummings said. He did not mention suicide or hurting others. The father also heard from a friend that his son may have had a gun, Cummings said. The police chief called Los Angeles police, who sent a patrol car to Ciancia’s apartment. There, two roommates said that they had seen him a day earlier and he had appeared to be fine. But by that time, shots were already breaking out at the airport. “There’s nothing we could do to stop him,” Cummings said. The police chief said he never met Paul Ciancia Jr., but that he learned from his father that he attended a technical school in Florida, then moved to Los Angeles in 2012 hoping to get a job as a motorcycle mechanic. He was having trouble finding work. “I’ve never dealt with the kids,” the chief said. “They were never on the police blotter, nothing like that.” Ciancia graduated in December 2011 from Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Orlando, Fla., said Tina Miller, a spokeswoman for Universal Technical Institute, the Scottsdale, Ariz., company that runs the school. A basic motorcycle mechanic course takes about a year, she said.

MARRIAGE: ‘A decision for the people,’ says Smaltz FROM PAGE A1

in a referendum. “It really is a decision for the people,” said Smaltz. “They’ll decide, for better or worse — pardon the pun — what they want, and the people of Indiana will have what they want, and that’s how it should be. We’re a self-governed state, and that’s what will happen.” Smaltz echoed the sentiments of fellow first-year lawmaker House District 82 Rep. Dave Ober, R-Albion, who said he, too, favors passing the decision to voters. Ober, who said he supports traditional marriage, said the topic is too socially important to be decided by a select group. “I fall into that group of people that hasn’t really made a decision on the record with regard to the resolution,” said Ober, “but for me, I think that it’s important that we allow every Hoosier in the state to make a decision on

this issue rather than 150 legislators. While we are elected to make decisions, whenver we can allow democratic decisions to be made, especially on issues of this importance, we should do that. I support what we will be considering as part of the process to allow every Hoosier to make that decision and allow them to decide that issue for themselves. It’s a policy decision that should not be left up to a small group of people.” Ober said he hasn’t spoken much with his colleagues on the issue, and he has his own bills to worry about. He said he suspects most of the General Assembly favors shifting the marriage decision to the voters. “I would guess that would probably be true, that most folks think that it’s best that they let their constituents answer that question for themselves rather than make

an executive decision down here in Indianapolis,” Ober said. Smaltz, who would not reveal his personal stance on same-sex marriage, said he has received some input from his constituents on the issue, though it is not “overwhelming” for or against. “I care about what Hoosiers have to say,” said Smaltz. “This is about Hoosiers making the decision. It’s about us deciding what we want to do. We are going to self-determine our future. “It’s really not going to be about me. I don’t think it’s going to be about any of the legislators. It’s going to be about whether we want to give the people of Indiana the ability to exercise their right on the amendment or not. I support giving the people of Indiana, if it comes down to that, the right to make a choice. They can choose what they want.”


Dean and Mary Lou Griffin sit in their home in Chadds Ford, Pa. on Friday. The Griffins are among millions of people nationwide who buy individual insurance

policies and are receiving notices that those policies are being discontinued because they don’t meet the higher benefit requirements of the new law.

Sticker shock often follows insurance cancellation MIAMI (AP) — Dean Griffin liked the health insurance he purchased for himself and his wife three years ago and thought he’d be able to keep the plan even after the federal Affordable Care Act took effect. But the 64-year-old recently received a letter notifying him the plan was being canceled because it didn’t cover certain benefits required under the law. The Griffins, who live near Philadelphia, pay $770 monthly for their soon-to-be-terminated health care plan with a $2,500 deductible. The cheapest plan they found on their state insurance exchange was a so-called bronze plan charging a $1,275 monthly premium with deductibles totaling $12,700. It covers only providers in Pennsylvania, so the couple, who live near Delaware, won’t be able to see doctors they’ve used for more than a decade. “We’re buying insurance that we will never use and can’t possibly ever benefit from. We’re basically passing on a benefit to other people who are not otherwise able

to buy basic insurance,” said Griffin, who is retired from running an information technology company. The Griffins are among millions of people nationwide who buy individual insurance policies and are receiving notices that those policies are being discontinued because they don’t meet the higher benefit requirements of the new law. They can buy different policies directly from insurers for 2014 or sign up for plans on state insurance exchanges. While lower-income people could see lower costs because of government subsidies, many in the middle class may get rude awakenings when they access the websites and realize they’ll have to pay significantly more. Those not eligible for subsidies generally receive more comprehensive coverage than they had under their soon-to-be-canceled policies, but they’ll have to pay a lot more. Because of the higher cost, the Griffins are considering paying the federal penalty — about $100 or 1 percent of income next year — rather

than buying health insurance. They say they are healthy and don’t typically run up large health care costs. Dean Griffin said that will be cheaper because it’s unlikely they will get past the nearly $13,000 deductible for the coverage to kick in. Individual health insurance policies are being canceled because the Affordable Care Act requires plans to cover certain benefits, such as maternity care, hospital visits and mental illness. The law also caps annual out-of-pocket costs consumers will pay each year. In the past, consumers could get relatively inexpensive, bare-bones coverage, but those plans will no longer be available. Many consumers are frustrated by what they call forced upgrades as they’re pushed into plans with coverage options they don’t necessarily want. Ken Davis, who manages a fast food restaurant in Austin, Texas, is recovering from sticker shock after the small-business policy offered by his employer was canceled for the same reasons individual policies are being discontinued.

Getts said her group sees approximately 100 community service workers a year. She can remember only one bad experience among the hundreds she has had working with them. Knauer said there is no evidence that performing community service helps prevent people from committing more crimes, but she endorses the program because of the positive benefits it has to the community. In some instances, people’s lives have been changed. Kern said someone who worked off his community service time at the National Military History Center continues to come in once a week or so — now as a volunteer. According to Mary Ann Paugh, supervising probation officer for LaGrange County Superior Court, approximately 8 to 10 percent of those who do community service don’t stop their work for the philanthropic groups they’ve served when their sentences are complete. Paugh said, “They’ll continue to serve their community when they are done serving their time.”

Children’s resale shop opens in Kendallville BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — It’s a little shop of fun things for children. “I just love children’s toys and clothes. They’re so cute,” said Mary Littlejohn, owner of PookaBugs, a children’s resale store that opened Oct. 2 at 112 E. William St. in the downtown business district. “We specialize in toys, clothes from infants to size 16 and everything children,” she said. Merchandise fills the shelves, and children’s

clothes hang from poles throughout the store. Even the store’s name originates with children. Littlejohn named her business after two of her grandchildren’s nicknames, “Pooka” and “Bugs.” This is Littlejohn’s first business. She worked in a re-sale shop in Auburn for five years before deciding to open her own store. “I looked at several locations, and this one in Kendallville was what I wanted,” she said. “I liked the inside counter and window and the furnish-

ings. I didn’t have to do much to it.” She described her merchandise as good, secondhand toys, shoes and clothes priced low to sell. Littlejohn looks forward to getting to know other downtown business owners and participating in downtown events. She resides in Auburn with her husband, Greg, who works for Littlejohn Auctions. They have three children. “I’m doing what I love, working with children’s items,” she said.

TERRE HAUTE — Fremont senior Abby Hostetler earned her third All-State honor in her fourth and final Indiana High School Athletic Association State Cross Country Finals Saturday afternoon on the LaVern Gibson Championship Course at the Wabash Valley Sports Center. She finished seventh for her best state finish ever, and ran the 5 kilometers in 18 minutes, 18.8 seconds. “Abby cemented her legacy at Fremont,” Eagles coach Moses Castillo said. Prairie Heights junior Aspen Dirr did not do too bad in her

cross country state finals debut, placing 37th in a school-record time of 18:59.4. It was the fifth straight postseason meet she set a school record, shattering her previous mark of 19:21.51 set in the New Haven Semistate on Oct. 26. Hostetler learned some lessons from the A. Hostetler semistate meet. “I got out a little better. Not too fast, not too slow, but started strong,” she


No. 25 Irish hold off Navy SOUTH BEND (AP) — Navy’s triple-option offense had Notre Dame flummoxed and flailing for most of the game. In need of one stop with 68 seconds left in the fourth quarter, freshman linebacker Jaylon Smith — with some help — made the play the Fighting Irish so badly needed. Smith and Eilar Hardy combined to snuff out an end-around by Navy’s Shawn Lynch on fourth-and-4 in Irish territory, and Notre Dame held on 38-34 Saturday. The Midshipmen ran for 331 yards, 207 in the first half. On Navy’s final drive, it ran the ball four straight plays for 18 yards and had it second-and-5 from the Notre Dame 32. “It’s a scenario you want. On the road at Notre Dame, driving to win the game. It doesn’t get any better than that,” Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds said. “It’s a dream come true.” Notre Dame’s hopes of returning to the Top 25 and hopes for a BCS bowl berth appeared tenuous at best. But Reynolds, who had run for three touchdowns and thrown for another, tossed a pitch just out of reach of DeBrandon Sanders. Sanders fell on the ball at the 41 for a 9-yard loss. Reynolds completed a 10-yard pass to Casey Bolena to set up a fourth down. Reynolds pitched the ball to Lynch on a reverse and for a moment it appeared he had room, but Smith quickly closed the gap and with the help from Hardy tackled Lynch for no gain. “Luckily, Eilar was there to slow the guy down initially, and then I was there to make the play,” Smith said. Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said Navy was a step too slow on the play. “Normally it should have been a fraction of a second sooner,” he said. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said the Irish were fortunate to pull

out the victory. “They executed flawlessly today,” Kelly said. “They really put us in a position where we had to play great in the second half.” Navy had no turnovers, no penalties and held the ball for 37:36 while the Irish had it just 22:24. Kelly said he wasn’t disappointed in the win. “There’s no asterisk next to this one. This is a W. We’re excited about it,” he said. Notre Dame (7-2) improved to 11-1 in November in four seasons under Kelly and clinched its fourth consecutive winning season, the first time that’s happened since 1995-98. The Irish also keep alive their hopes for a BCS bowl berth.

Navy lost for the third time in the past four games. Notre Dame has won its past 10 games decided by a touchdown or less, tying Kelly with Knute Rockne for the second-longest such streak in school history. Elmer Layden holds the record with 12. The bright spot for Notre Dame was the play of freshman running back Tarean Folston, who scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 1-yard plunge and rushed for 144 yards on 18 carries, with 116 yards in the second half. He had rushed for only 116 yards on 22 carries before Saturday. “There was just a big mess, so I just jumped over,” Folston said of his TD run.

Beckmann, Arnold run All-State BY PHIL FRIEND

TERRE HAUTE — DeKalb’s Mark Beckmann and West Noble’s Brandon Arnold both had a singular goal at Saturday’s Indiana High School Athletic Association cross country state finals: finish in the top 20 and reach the podium. Missions accomplished. Beckmann reached that goal Beckmann and then some, running one of the best races of his career on the Lavern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course at the Wabash Valley Sports Center, B. Arnold finishing in ninth place with a time of 15 minutes, 48.5 seconds. “It means a lot,” Beckmann said. “The funnest thing was to look out at the crowd and see everyone out there, and know you’re one of the top 10 in the state of Indiana. It’s a good experience.” Arnold just made it, taking 20th place and the last podium spot at 15:58.6. Beckmann ran with the top group of 20 runners the entire way, executing his game plan — to not rush out too fast in the first half of the race — to perfection. Beckmann never fell out of the top 20 throughout the course of the race. “My game plan was to try to hang with the front pack in the first mile,” Beckmann said. “There were people that were going to go out crazy, I just had to stay out and wait. When you hit a mile and a half, there’s a decent incline and that’s where I started to pick it up and got lots of people on that. “From the 3K to the 4k, it was get this person, get this next person. A little past the 4K point, you’re starting to figure out, I know I’m in the top 10 and you can hang on.” Beckmann is the first Baron runner to finish in the top 10 since Kaleb VanOrt finished third in 2000 and second in 2001. Beckmann ran in the state finals last year, finishing 45th (16:10). That experience from last year paid off in a major way Saturday. “You get lots of kids come down here for the first time, it’s a pretty crazy atmosphere. But when you know exactly what you’re going to do, that pays huge dividends there,” said DeKalb coach Rowland Perez. “This is definitely his kind of course. He

said. “I stayed consistent at the staircase, then it was about having the drive to do your best and believing in yourself.” Hostetler did not have enough to catch the lead runners, but she had enough to get into the top 10. “She was 14th or 15th at the 2-mile mark, then she moved up like she ususally does. It worked out,” Castillo said. Hostetler was appreciative of the support she had to help her succeed. “It was awesome to do that stuff,” Hostetler said of the three All-State honors. “I had



Indiana’s Cody Latimer (3) catches the ball as Minnesota’s Martez Shabazz defends during the second half of an NCAA college football game in Bloomington on Saturday. Minnesota won 42-38.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Linebacker Aaron Hill recovered a fumble by Indiana’s Tevin Coleman with 25 seconds remaining and surging Minnesota held on to beat the Hoosiers 42-39 on Saturday. Minnesota (7-2, 3-2 Big Ten) led 35-13 midway through the third quarter before the Hoosiers stormed back for a 39-35 lead on Nate Sudfeld’s 30-yard touchdown pass to Cody Latimer with 5:33 remaining. But Philip Nelson found Maxx Williams open down the middle for a 50-yard scoring pass on Minnesota’s ensuing possession. Indiana (3-5, 1-3) then drove to the Gophers’ 9-yard line before Sudfeld threw a lateral on secondand-goal that Coleman juggled. Hill scooped up the bouncing football to secure Minnesota’s third straight victory under acting coach Tracy Claeys. The Hoosiers lost their third straight despite

gaining 227 yards on the ground. Coach Kevin Wilson dropped briefly to one knee in despair as officials signaled the change of possession in the final seconds. Nelson went 16 of 23 for 298 yards and four touchdowns. David Cobb rushed 29 times for 188 yards and a score for Minnesota. Coleman ran 14 times for 108 yards and a touchdown for Indiana before his fateful mistake. Following a Minnesota timeout, Sudfeld lined up in a shotgun formation with Coleman to his right. Coleman floated into the right flat as Sudfeld threw a quick swing pass that traveled backward. Coleman did not attempt to fall on the loose football, while Hill alertly gathered the carom and saved a game that appeared ready to go to overtime or end with an Indiana victory. The Hoosiers were down 35-13 after Cobb exploded for a 27-yard touchdown run with 6:24

left in the third quarter. But touchdowns on four straight possessions, combined with three consecutive defensive stops, allowed Indiana to improbably take a late lead in a contest critical to its hopes of reaching the postseason for the first time since 2007. Indiana safety Greg Heban made a lunging tackle at the feet of Jalen Myrick, who came two yards shy of converting a fake punt on fourth-and-5 with 8:45 to play. That set up the heroics of Sudfeld and Latimer, whose touchdown put the Hoosiers in front for the first time since they led 13-7. A string of 28 unanswered Minnesota points ended when Sudfeld connected with Wynn on a 40-yard touchdown with 5:13 remaining in the third quarter. Indiana’s resulting furious comeback fell one score short. One play after Stephen Houston used superb blocking to pick up 21 SEE HOOSIERS, PAGE B3

Pacers handle Cavs INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George and Lance Stephenson combined for 43 points and the Indiana Pacers remained unbeaten in the young season with an 89-74 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night. Stephenson scored 22 points, including 10 in a 14-4 run midway through the fourth quarter that gave the Pacers a 79-61 lead with 7:46 to play. George, who had 21 points and 13 rebounds, and scored all the points in a key third-quarter run for Indiana (3-0). Dion Waiters scored 17 points, Kyrie Irving had 15 and Anderson Varejao 14 for Cleveland (1-2), which dropped both ends of a two-night road trip after beginning the season with a homecourt win. Stephenson began the final surge by hitting a 3-pointer from the left side, scored on a layup, drove the lane, then finished the run by knocking down a 28-footer from the left side. That pushed Indiana’s lead to 18 points, and both coaches substituted liberally. Roy Hibbert added 11 points for the Pacers, who played without guard George Hill, who sat out with a sore left hip. Replacing Hill, who scored 19 points in the Pacers’ opener, was C.J. Watson, who scored seven points and dished out a team-high six assists. Cleveland, which had scored the last six points of the third quarter to pull within 62-55, trailed 65-57 early in the fourth quarter. Stephenson was 7 of 13 from the field, including

5 of 7 from 3-point range. George was 8 of 17 from the field, including 3 of 6 from beyond the arc. George fueled the only real run of the first half, starting with a monster jam with 4:06 to go in the first quarter and finishing the 8-2 surge with two free throws as the Pacers took a 21-16 lead after one quarter. Varejao started out fast for the Cavs, scoring eight points in the first 4:42, but the Pacers began to defend him at the free throw line

and he did not score again in the half. The Pacers shot 42 percent (16 of 38) in the first half to Cleveland’s 31 percent (13 of 42) and outrebounded the Cavs 30-25. Cleveland, which shot 29.2 percent (7 of 24) in the first quarter, improved to 34.9 percent (29 of 83) for the game. The Pacers finished at 41.6 percent (32 of 77). Indiana outrebounded Cleveland 51-37.

Blackhawks beat Winnipeg WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Chicago captain Jonathan Toews wasn’t disappointed that his points streak was halted at five games. More important was the 5-1 victory the Blackhawks earned against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday that extended their winning streak to three games. Toews’ linemate Patrick Sharp did get a goal of an assist by Marian Hossa, so it wasn’t as if the team’s top line was shut out of the action. “As a line, maybe we didn’t get too much going,”

said Toews, who had nine points in the previous five games, including a natural hat trick on Tuesday. “We didn’t get that puck control we wanted to throughout three periods, but a nice play by Hossa on Sharpy’s goal there.” Hossa had stolen the puck and sprung Sharp on a breakaway. He deked in front of goalie Ondrej Pavelec and fired a low shot on the glove side at 2:41 that made it 3-1.

second period. Corey Crawford stopped 26 shots in picking up his eighth win of the season. Defensemen Niklas Hjalmarsson and Nick Leddy, and forwards Brandon Bollig and Ben Smith also scored. Marcus Kruger had a pair of assists and Leddy and Bollig also picked up an assist each for the Blackhawks, who are 4-1-1 on the road this season. Defenseman Tobias Enstrom scored at 5:08 of the first period for the Jets, losers of three straight. Hjalmarrson tied it 1-1 after Kruger cleanly won the face off and sent him the puck. His goal spoiled an impressive penalty kill for Winnipeg. Fans had just given the Jets a standing ovation for killing off a 21-second two-man advantage, but just 1 second after the final penalty expired, Hjalmarrson fired a high shot from just inside the blue line that went through traffic at 9:58. Bollig, Sharp and Leddy scored their goals in a 4:55 span. “I thought we played really well and then all of a sudden it was 3-1,” Jets captain Andrew Ladd said. “And then you maybe get outside your game a little bit and try doing things to catch up and dig a deep hole.” Jets coach Claude Noel viewed Sharp’s goal as the dagger.



Trine held to early score in loss BY JAMES FISHER

ANGOLA — Just two minutes into Saturday’s Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association football game, Hope College quarterback Michael Atwell stood on the sidelines and watched as Trine receiver Gage Corner celebrated in the end zone following a quick Thunder score. It did little to deter Atwell or the Flying Dutchmen, which scored the next 35 points on the way to a 35-7 rout of Trine University. “It’s unusual that our defense let a score in right away, but we answered after that,” Atwell said. “It’s a testament to our hard work down the stretch. We came back strong.” Atwell threw for three scores, completing 18-of-28 passes for 316 yards. Hope won its fourth game in row, with league victories over Trine, Kalamazoo, Alma and Olivet. The Flying Dutchmen move to 4-1 and still have a shot at the MIAA title. Albion, which defated Olivet at home 42-28 Saturday, is 4-0. “If things play out right, we have a shot at a share,” Atwell explained. It was the final home game of the season for Trine, which lost for the fifth straight time and remains winless in the MIAA at 0-4. The squad, which opened the season by winning its first three games, is 3-5 overall. Trine has games remaining against Olivet and Alma. “Two and zero, that’s the battle cry,” said Trine running back Richard Gunn. “Every week we always believe we’re going to win.

We’re not going to give up.” Gunn finished with 100 yards on 22 carries. He is among 17 seniors who played their final home game for the Thunder. “The seniors, we’ve worked hard all year,” Gunn said. “This is the most close knit group I’ve been a part of. It’s sad to see it’s our last game here.” Gunn has 1,090 yards on the season and becomes the third Thunder back to break a thousand yards. Barron Chambers did it twice in the 1990s and Terrance Summers ran for 1,127 yards in the 2004 season. “It means I have great linemen,” Gunn said. “We also have a great set of coaches that support us.” Trine took the opening kickoff and went 72 yards in just five plays, with quarterback Andrew Dee capping the drive with a 37-yard toss to Corner. “That drive, we mixed it up,” Gunn explained. “After that, we made small mistakes in the red zone.” Trine had two field goal attempts blocked and senior kicker Tyler Keck also had a 38-yard attempt sail wide left. Hope followed Trine’s opening drive with a stellar first drive of its own, marching 65 yards in 12 plays with Shawn Jackson scoring on a 21-yard run on a fourth down-and-short play. Atwell threw secondquarter touchdown strikes to Vincent Boddy and Taylor Brynaert and by halftime the Flying Dutchmen had built a 21-7 lead. If that wasn’t enough, Atwell hit Boddy for a 60-yard score 49 seconds into the second half that left

the Flying Dutchmen firmly in command. Zach Boersema added a touchdown on a 4-yard run with five minutes left in the third quarter to cap the scoring. Corner finished with 11 catches for 157 yards to lead Trine receivers. Dee was 11-of-22 passing for 149 yards. Freshman Brandon Rooze saw action at quarter-

back in the second half for the Thunder and threw for 48 yards and completed 3-of-6 attempts. Boddy had six catches for 158 yards and two TDs for Hope. Connor Parcell caught four passes for 72 yards. The Flying Dutchmen finished with 118 yards rushing, led by 61 from Boersema.

Southeastern 76-122. Hostetler did well enough at state to earn a berth on Team Indiana for the Mid-East Cross Country Championships, which will be held in Kettering, Ohio, on Nov. 16. It’s an all-star meet made up of teams of senior harriers from Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois.

Hostetler is the second Fremont runner in as many years to run the Mid-East meet after Anna Aldrich did it last year. Dirr was amazed by her run. “It’s really unreal to be honest,” she said. “I didn’t think I was going that fast. “It was huge. I’m

pretty happy. It was really motivating with those huge crowds out there.” Panther coach Mark Walter said Dirr executed the plan perfectly. “She held the pace we expected at each K,” Walter said. “We wanted her to run 3:50 to 4 minutes each K and she nailed it.”

did exactly what he had to do. He ran the race and deserves all the credit. He followed the game plan and just kept moving up. Every time the coaches saw him, he looked perfect.” This year’s boys’ race, however, will be remembered by what happened to Concordia’s Zach Panning. Panning, the favorite to win going in, led throughout nearly the entire race, and with 300 meters to go, collapsed on the ground. Panning got up multiple times, subsequently fell down multiple times, and collapsed again as he crossed the finish line. He finished 22nd (15:59). Arnold was one of the runners to finish just ahead of Panning, and really ran the race he had to run to give himself a chance to get on the podium, said Chargers coach Rusty Emmert. “Brandon ran very, very well. There was a lot of tough competition,” Emmert said. “He was in position from the very beginning by getting out with the leaders. He maintained and held on. There were a cluster of people in that last kilometer and he picked off a few. “Brandon ran a smart, tough race. He did what he needed to do and made it happen. I’m proud of him.” Terre Haute South senior Jackson Bertoli won the individual title with a time of 15:32.4. Carmel won the state title with 64 points. Columbus North (78) was second.

Buckeyes rout Boilermakers WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — Purdue coach Darrell Hazell expected more than this Saturday. He watched freshman quarterback, Danny Etling, get beaten up again. He saw the running game stopped cold again. He saw a defense repeatedly out of position. The predictable result— more dubious records. Braxton Miller threw for 233 yards and four touchdowns and backup Kenny Guiton added another TD pass and two more rushing scores as No. 4 Ohio State extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 21 with a record-breaking 56-0 victory against Purdue. “You have to take the salt and live with the salt for 24 hours and then move forward,” Hazell said. “If you don’t, it will fester and you won’t get any better from it. We’ll feel terrible about it tonight and tomorrow and then tomorrow we will look at the tape and see where we can make improvements.” There’s no shortage of areas that need a fix. Etling was 13 of 29 for 89 yards with no touchdowns, six sacks and an interception that was returned for a score on his first pass of the game. The Boilermakers (1-7, 0-4 Big Ten) ran 27 times for 27 yards. The defense gave up 640 yards and five touchdowns passing. Purdue has now lost six straight, been shut out in back-to-back games for the

first time since 1953 and still hasn’t taken a snap in the red zone since late in a Sept. 28 loss to Northern Illinois. Opponents have broken the Ross-Ade Stadium scoring record twice this season, and Saturday’s debacle will go down as the worst home loss in school history and tied for the worst loss ever at Purdue. The Boilermakers also lost 56-0 to Chicago in 1907 and to Iowa in 1922. “We have just got to keep playing and getting better,” said cornerback Ricardo Allen, who did have an interception. “We have to play better than what we did today.” Ohio State (9-0, 5-0) made the Boilermakers pay dearly for their mistakes with an early 28-pont scoring flurry. Doran Grant got it started with the 33-yard interception return. Miller then threw three TD passes in the first quarter to make it 28-0 and the rout was on. The Buckeyes produced the highest scoring total and most lopsided victory margin in the 56-game series, surpassing marks they set in a 49-0 victory in 2010. They handed Purdue (1-7, 0-4) its first back-toback shutouts in six decades, and the 56-point loss matched the worst in Boilermakers history. Purdue lost 56-0 to Iowa on Oct. 28, 1922 and 56-0 to Chicago on Nov. 9, 1907.

yards on third-and-10, he powered in from the 4-yard line to give Indiana a chance to tie. Minnesota’s defense stopped Sudfeld’s scramble on the 2-point conversion attempt to maintain a 35-33 lead. A read-option pitch from Tre Roberson to Coleman resulted in a 55-yard touchdown run down the

MSU mashes Michigan EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Mark Dantonio has always embraced Michigan State’s rivalry with Michigan, but this week the confident coach took a fairly calm approach. “Don’t worry about all the things that are being said — just keep your mouth shut,” Dantonio said. “Get ready to play, start the game and finish stronger than when you started. We were going to let the lion out of the cage at 3:30, and that’s what happened.” Dantonio’s Spartans battered their biggest rivals for the full 60 minutes Saturday, and 24th-ranked Michigan State remained unbeaten in the Big Ten with a 29-6 victory over the 23rd-ranked Wolverines. Michigan was sacked seven times and finished with minus-48 yards rushing, the worst output in the Ann Arbor program’s lengthy history. This after the Wolverines had vowed Saturday wouldn’t be a repeat of the game in East Lansing in 2011, when Michigan State’s physicality was too much for Michigan. “Two years ago was nothing,” Michigan State linebacker Denicos Allen said. “It was a lot worse today, and I think they felt it.” Michigan State (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) has won five of the last six meetings with the Wolverines (6-2, 2-2), and this was the Spartans’ most lopsided win in the series since 1967. Connor Cook threw for a touchdown and ran for one,

but this game belonged to Michigan State’s defense, which solidified its spot among the nation’s best with an overwhelming performance on a rainy afternoon at Spartan Stadium. Shilique Calhoun and Ed Davis had 2 ½ sacks each, and Allen added two more. “We’re going to bully people — that’s the game of football,” Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi said. “We didn’t want any personal fouls — we had one stupid one, I think on special teams at the end — we talked really about not getting any penalties. … They’ve got a good football team, but we’ve got a great football team.” Michigan State entered ranked No. 1 in the nation in total defense, and the Spartans looked positively dominating for most of the game. Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner was sacked four times in the first quarter, and things only got worse for the Wolverines on one drive in the second. On first down from the Michigan State 49, a shotgun snap sailed over Gardner’s head for a loss of 20. After a sack on third down and a Michigan penalty, the Wolverines finally punted on fourth-and-48. “A lot of negative yardage plays. There were some pretty good runs once in a while, but when you snap the ball for a 20-yard loss and get sacked I don’t know how many times, your yardage part of it isn’t very good,” Michigan coach

Brady Hoke said. “You put yourself behind the 8-ball, not executing and then you’re forced into doing things you don’t want to do.” Thanks to the sacks and that bad snap, Michigan finished the first half with minus-41 yards rushing. The Wolverines’ best hope was for Gardner to look for big chunks of yardage on deep passes. He completed a few, including a 58-yarder to Jehu Chesson that set up a field goal in the second quarter. With the score tied at 6, Michigan State’s slumbering offense finally broke through, driving 75 yards on 10 plays for the game’s first touchdown. It came on a 14-yard pass from Cook to Bennie Fowler with 23 seconds left in the half. Fowler’s sliding catch came in the same back corner of the end zone where he was unable to hold onto a potential touchdown pass earlier in the quarter. The second half was more of the same. Michael Geiger’s third field goal of the day made it 16-6, and the Wolverines were stuck deep in their own territory for much of the third quarter. Michigan finally caught a break when Cook’s pass was intercepted by Raymon Taylor, giving the Wolverines the ball at the Michigan State 41. But that only gave the Spartans another chance to shine on defense. “We’re excited to play, we’re excited to go out there,” linebacker Max Bullough said.

Keselowski takes Nationwide race Auburn downs FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Brad Keselowski raced to his sixth Nationwide victory in his last eight starts, leading 106 of 200 laps at Texas to give Roger Penske’s No. 22 car the lead in the owners’ standings. For the drivers’ title, Sam Hornish Jr. overcame being a lap down early in the race to finish third and cut his deficit behind Austin Dillon from eight points to six with two races left in the season. Dillon finished fifth. “We did what we could do. We took care of ourselves,” Hornish said. “We came back when it didn’t look like we would gain points for quite a bit of the race. … If we can take one or two off the following weekend that puts the pressure on him. He doesn’t just have to finish within a couple spots of us then, he will have to beat us.” With the win in the No. 22 Ford, Keselowski put Penske back in the lead in the owners’ standings, 26 points ahead of Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 54 Toyota. Keselowski finished nearly a second ahead of Denny Hamlin. Keselowski has 26 career Nationwide wins. The No. 22 car has been to Victory Lane 12 times this season, with wins also by Joey Logano (three), AJ Allmendinger (two) and Ryan Blaney (one). The singleseason Nationwide record is 13 wins by the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota in 2010. Keselowski wrecked at Kansas the last time he drove the Nationwide car.

“I had to redeem myself,” he said. “When you win, it’s almost more of a relief that you didn’t screw it up. It’s obviously a lot of fun.” Last season, Keselowski gave Penske his first Sprint Cup title. Penske still hasn’t won a Nationwide championship. Kyle Busch, driving the No. 54 Toyota for Gibbs, crashed hard into the wall in Turn 4 and then took a wild ride through the grass just past the halfway point of the race. His crew made some repairs to get him back in the race, but he finished in 26th place and four laps off the pace. Hornish and Dillon each led only two laps on the high-banked 1½-mile track, with Sprint Cup points leader Matt Kenseth finishing third between them. Keselowski, who started second like he will Sunday in the Sprint Cup race, led six times. Hamlin had five leads for a total of 45 laps while Kenseth led twice for 42 laps. The race’s first caution didn’t come until a yellow flag came out on the 71st lap because of debris, wiping out Keselowski’s 4.8-second lead over Busch, who was then running second. On the first series of green-flag stops, Dillon stayed out the longest to get a bonus point for leading a lap. When Dillon finally made his first stop after 54 laps, Hornish was following him down pit road. Hornish was serving a pass-through penalty for hitting the

Cornhuskers win on Hail Mary pass LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — All Jordan Westerkamp remembered was the ball floating in his hands and wondering if his feet were in the end zone. His answer came when he looked at the sideline and saw a stampede of teammates rushing toward him. Oh, yes, those feet were right where they needed to be. Westerkamp snagged Ron Kellogg III’s tipped desperation heave with no time left Saturday, giving the Cornhuskers a 27-24 victory over Northwestern. “The tough part was the big dog pile,” Westerkamp said. “I couldn’t breathe for a

while. Exciting. Just a good moment.” A very good moment, indeed, for a Nebraska team that looked finished after Northwestern took a three-point lead with 1:20 left. The Huskers started their final drive at their 17 with no timeouts and a quarterback who started the season No. 3 on the depth chart. “That felt like I just hit a shot for the Final Four,” Kellogg said. The Huskers wouldn’t have been in position to win without a fourth-and-15 conversion moments earlier. Ameer Abdullah

No. 9 Clemson 59, Virginia 10 In Charlottesville, Va.. Tajh Boyd threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score and Clemson broke the game open with three touchdowns in the last 4:18 of the first half. The Hampton, Va., native became the Atlantic Coast Conference’s career leader in touchdown-making with a 33-yard pass to Sammy Watkins to start the scoring for the Tigers (8-1, 6-1 ACC). It broke a tie at 112 TDs with North Carolina State’s Philip Rivers. Boyd later added TD throws of 10 yards to Roderick McDowell and 96 yards to Watkins, and scored on a 1-yard run 13 seconds before halftime to make it 35-7. Virginia (2-7, 0-5) lost its sixth in a row and for the 15th time in its last 19 games. It also suffered its second 59-10 loss at home this season, having lost by the same score against No. 2 Oregon in the second week of the season. No. 14 South Carolina 34, Mississippi State 16 In Columbia, S.C., Connor Shaw threw for four touchdowns, Mike Davis ran for 128 yards to move past 1,000 yards this season and South Carolina tied a school record with its 15th straight home victory. Shaw matched his personal best for TD throws after missing two days of practice with a virus. Davis, the SEC’s leading rusher, had his seventh game reaching the century mark and became the team’s first 1,000-yard rusher since Marcus Lattimore gained 1,197 yards his freshman season three years ago. No. 21 Northern Illinois 63, Massachusetts 19 In Foxborough, Mass., Jordan Lynch ran for 119 yards and four touchdowns and threw for another in just over a half to help Northern Illinois stay unbeaten.

Cameron Stingily rushed for 58 yards and a touchdown, and Tommylee Lewis also ran one in for Northern Illinois.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Parade held in Boston to honor world champion Red Sox BOSTON (AP) — From the Green Monster to the Charles River, the bearded champions celebrated their improbable journey with another familiar sight in Boston. The World Series trophy. For the third time in 10 years, the Red Sox carried the prize through their city in a “rolling rally” of amphibious “duck boats” as thousands of fans lined the streets and the banks of the waterway that separates Boston from Cambridge. The most poignant moment occurred early in Saturday’s trip when the vehicles stopped at the Boston Marathon finish line, near where two explosions killed three spectators at the race on April 15. Outfielder Jonny Gomes placed the trophy on the line and he and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia held Red Sox jerseys with the words “BOSTON STRONG” and the number 617, the city’s area code. A jersey with that message hung in the Red Sox dugout throughout the season after the bombings. On a mild, sunny day, noted tenor Ronan Tynan sang “God Bless America” and the crowd joined in. “That was an emotional moment,” Gomes said. “To bring the World Series trophy to the finish line, I don’t think that the story was written that way, but I was glad to be a part of it and put the exclamation point on it.” Before the rally began at Fenway, manager John Farrell recalled that the Red Sox had left after their 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays the day of the Marathon for Logan Airport for a road trip. Along the way, they saw emergency vehicles responding to the explosions. “Knowing that we were heading out of town, that’s going to bring back a lot, and a lot of uncertainty at that moment,” Farrell said, “because no one knew where to turn next. So we were fortunate to be part of maybe a little bit of a healing process.” Second baseman Dustin Pedroia said: “We played for the whole city, what the city went through.” Boston’s climb from last place in the AL East in 2012 to the top of the baseball world was stunning. But not to Pedroia, a gritty leader of a closely knit team that won the title with a 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 on Wednesday night. It was the first time the Red Sox won the Series at home in 95 years. “The way we started spring training, it seemed like everybody counted us out,” he said. “We always said, ‘One day closer to a parade.’ It’s here.” The line score from the clinching game was still on the scoreboard on the left-field wall as season-ticket holders gathered for a pre-rally ceremony. “We just wanted this group to win so badly,” general manager Ben Cherington told the crowd, “because we know they wanted it so badly.” Then the team boarded 25 duck boats of many colors — pink, yellow, maroon, lime green, white and more — normally used for tourist trips. Some boats even had light brown carpeting cut into the shape of beards attached on the front. Players still had their beards, which some had grown all season long. “Hopefully, we can all get together and shave them for a good cause,” third baseman Will Middlebrooks said. Some fans also were at rolling rallies after the 2004 and 2007 championships. “This may be the best parade yet,” said Charles Butler, 48, of Boston, who attended his third. “It is the best thing that could have happened to Boston right now. The bombing was a sad time, and now we have a reason to come together and celebrate.” Anna Mitkevicius, 24, of Medford, watched from near the finish line that she never reached on April 15. She was stopped about one mile before the end because of the explosions. “It is still a very emotional experience to come down here,” she said. “I didn’t know if it would be too hard to be at the finish line, but I’m happy I came. It felt really good to be here when everyone is celebrating and the mood is good.”

Bulls lose in Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Rookie Michael Carter-Williams had 26 points and 10 assists and Spencer Hawes added 18 points and 11 rebounds as the Philadelphia 76ers continued their stunning start to the season, beating the Chicago Bulls 107-104 on Saturday night. Pegged to be one of the league’s worst teams, the Sixers (3-0) have opened the season with wins over Chicago, Washington and two-time defending champion Miami. Carlos Boozer led the Bulls with 22 points and 10 rebounds and Luol Deng had 20 points. Still dealing with neck soreness, Derrick Rose finished with 13 points and six assists for Chicago.

Broncos coach hospitalized DENVER (AP) — Denver coach John Fox was taken to a hospital in the Charlotte, N.C., area Saturday after feeling light-headed while playing golf during the Broncos’ bye week. Team spokesman Patrick Smyth said the 58-year-old Fox “is in good spirits and he told me he did not suffer a heart attack.”

Main St. Owners and managers Gayle Lovely and her niece, Bambi Pasztor, both of Kendallville, said they saw a need for a fashionable women’s clothing store in Kendallville, and they wanted a downtown location. “We like to shop, and I know like many other women we get tired of



driving to Fort Wayne and other places to find nice clothes and accessories because we couldn’t find them here,” said Pasztor. They decided to open a store and invited vendors to supply merchandise. “We have name brands like American Eagle, Silver’s, Big Star, Coach purses. We have prom dresses and semi-formal dresses and accessories. Lots of things you can’t get elsewhere in Kendallville for much less cost than what you would pay in Fort Wayne,” said Pasztor, who gave up a full-time job to start the business. Lovely and Pasztor looked at several locations in Kendallville including

a small building on East William Street before deciding on the Main Street building. “We realized we needed more space, and this location had the Main Street storefront, a nice, new wooden floor and lots of space,” said Pasztor. They designed the interior before moving in. Merchandise is arranged on shelves and hangar rails for easy access, and the aisles are wide. “We wanted a place where women could come and browse,” she said. “Our store gives people a reason to come downtown.” The owners are planning a grand opening on Nov. 9 and a special event on Sunday, Nov. 17.

AUBURN — When discussing her recent business acquisition, Auburn resident Erin Thiele barely can contain her enthusiasm. “I’m excited,” she said. “It will be a fun journey that I’m just starting. But it’s something I always wanted to do. The passion is there.” On Oct. 14, Thiele became the new owner of Little Sprouts children’s clothing boutique in downtown Auburn. She took over the business from former owner Joy Thomas. Thiele said she realized she wanted to operate a children’s boutique while attending Purdue University, where she became friends with a woman who was opening a boutique there. “At school I knew it was something I wanted to do,” she said. Thiele individually selects the apparel offered at Little Sprouts. “Boutique clothing is unique and not carried in big department stores,” she said. “Each are pieces I’ve chosen to carry in my boutique.” Thiele hopes to expand the selection of boys clothing offered at Little Sprouts. “I am open to suggestions from customers on lines to carry or specific items they are interested in,” Thiele said. “I want to be the one-stop shop where you

can find outfits for all your children.” Little Sprouts carries clothing for girls in sizes newborn through 16. For boys the sizes are from newborn to 12. Thiele also plans to carry children’s shoes. At the back of the store, a room is designated for

gently-used items as well as garments from the store’s previous season. Eventually, Thiele said, she plans to renovate the interior of the store and display repurposed furniture from the business Fancy Schmancy that she and her sister-in-law, Jenna Thiele, operate.

Longtime Garrett business liquidating, store closing GARRETT — Ort’s Furniture, Jewelry and Gifts is liquidating the store’s inventory at 1308 S. Randolph St. “After serving DeKalb County and surrounding counties for over eight decades, we have decided to retire from the familyowned business,” family members said in a statement. Charles Ort moved to

Garrett from Hartford City in 1911 to work for the Henry L. Wehrly Jewelry store in the 100 block of North Randolph Street. Ort later purchased the business. His son, William “Bill” Ort, became manager of a second store on South Randolph Street until he took over the jewelry store following his father’s death. His son, Chuck Ort, has worked at the south store since the

late 1960s. In 1996, stores consolidated at the South Randolph Street site. Bill Ort died Feb. 7 at the age of 94. Until a week or two before his death, he continued to drive himself to work every day. The decision to close the store was made by his widow, Vicky, and children, Chuck Ort and Alice Weller, who continue to operate the business.

Schools share pride, spirit BY JENNIFER DECKER, PHOTOS BY CHAD KLINE,

School nicknames are designed to promote spirit and athletic hype. Some reflect area history or flavor, but for many schools, the origins of such names remain a mystery. Area high schools’ nicknames and origins: Angola Hornets Angola likely received the Hornets nickname when the high school moved into a building that today houses the Steuben Community Center. Reportedly during the 1930s, the girls teams were known as the Zippers.

Central Noble Cougars In the late 1960s, Central Noble was formed from the consolidation of Wolf Lake, Albion Jefferson and York Center schools. The schools’ student representatives agreed on the Cougars name.

DeKalb Barons DeKalb High School athletic director Ron Kock said DeKalb County was named for General Johann Baron DeKalb. It appears the Baron nickname was chosen from that connection.

East Noble Knights The name likely was derived from Knights being considered “noble” matching the county’s name. The school colors came from Avilla High School (blue) and Kendallville High School (gold).

Eastside Blazers Aaron Willard, athletic director, said he doesn’t know where the Blazers nickname came from. It’s a far cry from the Windmills, used by Butler High School, one of the schools that formed the consolidation. SEE MASCOTS, PAGE C2

Top, Sir Knight can be seen at many East Noble sporting events. Like many mascots, the Prairie Heights Panther charms crowds at numerous sporting and other

events. Below, the Central Noble Cougar makes several apperances throughout the sporting seasons in Albion.

Some mascots divisive Read about what’s happening nationwide with teams that have mascots others find offensive







MASCOTS: Eagles a very popular mascot FROM PAGE A1

Fremont Eagles Fremont’s Eagle mascot is one of the most popular in the state. Twenty-one other schools have the same nickname. Martha Hagerty with the Fremont Historical Society said a 1939 school yearbook showed that before using the Eagles, Fremont was known as the Red Terrors. She said it’s likely when the new high school was built, the Eagles nickname stuck.

Garrett Railroaders The city of Garrett was founded by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in 1875. It remains home to operations of the CSX railroad.

Hamilton Marines Hamilton added a mascot and spirit club to coincide with the Marine nickname. After some research, the school adopted Sgt. Smedley, a bulldog, as its mascot. That research showed German soldiers during World War I referred to Marines as “teufel hunden,” which translates to “devil dogs” in English. Marines were impressed and soon adopted the concept on recruitment posters with a growling English bulldog wearing a Marine battle helmet.

Teams pressured to change Native American names Some professional and college sports teams are being pressured by Native American groups to change their names because some people consider them offensive. Some colleges have responded by choosing new nicknames. The Associated Press reports: • Washington Redskins of the National Football League and team owner Dan Snyder are being pressured to change the Redskins name. President Barack Obama has called for the change. The NFL plans to meet with a Native American tribe pushing for the name change.

• Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL have a cheerleader ride a horse named “Warpaint” around the field before each home game. • Stanford University Cardinal changed from their former Indian mascot in 1971. • Marquette University Warriors became the Golden Eagles in 1994. • The College of William and Mary sports teams were the Indians until 1978, when they became the Tribe. In 2006, the school removed the two feathers in its logo. • Southeastern Oklahoma State University was known as the Savages, but in 2006, became the Savage Storm.

• Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association continue using their name, continuing a tradition from when they were the Philadelphia Warriors, but the team has removed Native American imagery. • Cleveland Indians, Major League Baseball, continue to use Chief Wahoo as the logo. The chief is a red-faced cartoon figure wearing a single feather in its head piece. • Atlanta Braves, MLB. Until 1986, the Chief Noc-A-Homa mascot emerged from a tee pee and danced around the baseball field.

Westview known as Warriors out of honor The Howe School Cadets / Wildcats The military school had the Wildcat as its mascot in the beginning, before it was changed to the Cadets. It was then changed back to the original Wildcat option in the last few years.

Lakeland Lakers Tim Gonderman, athletic director, said he’s not sure why or how the school athletic teams became called the Lakers, but there are a lot of lakes in LaGrange County. Its logo is a double intertwined-L.

Lakewood Park Christian School Panthers In the early 1990s, the school was known as the Faith Christian Academy Eagles. Eventually, the school’s name changed to Lakewood Park Christian. At that point, the superintendent and others decided to change the name to the Panthers, and the school colors became black and blue, replacing to the original hues of yellow and green.

KPC Poll: Agree with Obama?

TOPEKA — The only school in the KPC Media Group coverage area that uses a Native American-related name as its identifying logo is Westview High School. Westview Superintendent Dr. Randall Zimmerly said his corporation hasn’t had any pressure to change the Warrior name, but there remains a sensitivity to its usage, which is for honor. Zimmerly said he’s not sure how the Warrior name was chosen, but it’s been Westview’s identifying factor since the late 1960s, when there was consolidation of schools in Topeka, Shipshewana, Honeyville and Scott. Zimmerly was quick to point out the Warrior “There’s been no isn’t the school’s mascot, pressure to change the but is treated more with A few years name. You want to be reverence. ago, the high school’s gym sensitive to everyone.” floor’s logo was changed to a depiction of spears with feathers, which he said help signify strength Dr. Randall Zimmerly Westview Superintendent and honor. “The only discomfort was our caricature of Native Americans,” he said in regards to the former logo. “There’s been no pressure to change the name. You want to be sensitive to everyone,” he said.

A kpcnews. com poll asked: Do you agree with President Barack Obama’s statement that the Washington Redskins should consider a name change? People’s choices were:

YES — 14.5 percent

NO — 41.1 percent OBAMA SHOULD NOT COMMENT ON THIS TOPIC — 40.3 percent


Prairie Heights Panthers Alan Middleton, Prairie Heights schools superintendent, said the Panther name was chosen around 50 years ago with the consolidation of Orland, Mongo, Stroh and Flint schools.


West Noble Chargers Tom Schermerhorn, the school’s athletic director, said a committee voted on the mascot name and school songs in the late 1960s.

New pastor joins Pleasant View Church of Christ BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — A new family has been added to the Pleasant View Church of Christ fold. The Rev. Eric Bingaman, his wife, Shannon, and their three children, recently moved to Angola from Batesville. Over nine years at Batesville Christian Church, Bingaman said he watched it grow from 140 to around 300 people. As the senior minister there segued from a part-time professor position to full-time ministry and an addition was being built on the church, Bingaman said he took the opportunity to make a move. Bingaman was chosen as the new pastor at Pleasant View, where he replaces the Rev. Al LaRue. LaRue has retired and is working with his son, a Russian missionary, in Fort Wayne. With a degree in broadcast journalism from Butler University, Bingaman’s

original vocation was in radio and television in Indianapolis. When his first son was born in 1997, Bingaman gave up the hectic hours of that business and returned to his hometown of Logansport. While selling advertising for a local radio station, he got involved in an effort to plant a Christian church in Dubuque, Iowa. He served two years there as media minister and then enrolled at Cincinnati Christian University. He received a degree in practical ministry and two master’s degrees, one for church leadership and another in evangelism. This summer, he put the word out that he may be ready to move on, and seriously looked at a church in Jacksonville, Fla., and Pleasant View. “As we talked it felt like God was putting pieces together,” Bingaman said. He said he is looking forward to working with the

200-person congregation at Pleasant View and getting involved in the community. “He’s a great guy,” said Laura Brady, children’s director at the church. Bingaman said he wants to provide an atmosphere to foster “a family of God” within the church walls. “The congregation is eager to learn and grow, and grow as a family,” said Bingaman. “We believe that we all have things we can learn from one another.” Services at Pleasant View Church of Christ, 200 Fox Lake Road, are at 10:30 a.m. following 9:30 a.m. Sunday school. It includes both a contemporary worship band and classic hymnals, geared toward reaching the different facets within the church. Along with helping the congregation blend together even more, Bingaman said he wants to get the church youth more involved in the Sunday service.


The Rev. Eric Bingaman, his wife, Shannon, and their children Crosby, Dannee Kay and Makinlee have been at the Pleasant View Church of Christ in

Angola for the past month and a half. Bingaman replaces retired pastor Al LaRue.

Living ‘now’ for the ‘not yet’ November always comes as something of a surprise for me. Some years it seems like July goes straight into November, especially if the weather happens to be warm late into October. Then it feels as though the year is very old. In the liturgy of the church, the readings during November deal with the “last things.” These “last things” include death, judgment, eternal life (heaven) and eternal death (hell). The fancy theological term for these last things is eschatology (es-kuh-tahl’o-gee). Why do we talk about these things? First, we talk about death because we all come to it. There is no escape. And death is the ultimate great

equalizer because it does not respect persons, status or age. We all come to it, period. Second, what we believe about death affects how we live in this life. If we believe that there is no life after death, that physical BARB death is just an end, there BRALEY is nothing beyond this life to hope for. Further, how we live in this life has no meaning beyond the here and now and so there may be little or no incentive to live well. On the other hand, if we believe that there is a

life beyond our mortality, it will indeed have an effect on how we live in the here and now. What we believe also has an affect. If we believe in a God of stern judgment, one who keeps a scrupulous account of all our wrongs, we might be very anxious about the next life. Hope at this point is rather shaky. If we believe in a God of mercy, we might presume upon that mercy and place little or no importance on how we live now. Or, even though we are aware of our sins, we ask God to have mercy on us and try to live as we believe that God wants us to live. Hope is much more secure here. The truth is: what we believe about life after death and how we live out that belief is indeed very

important. As Christians, we believe that God has called us to a life of complete happiness in union with him in heaven. Further, we can choose a life of happiness (a virtuous and moral life) in the here and now by following God’s will for us. Although this life of happiness will only be complete in the next life, we understand it to be a foretaste of that full and complete happiness in heaven. Conversely, if we choose to separate ourselves from God’s will for us, we will only find more and more restlessness and lack of true fulfillment and happiness – both in this life and in the next. In other words, the way of life we

choose now will be the same way of life we choose for ourselves in the life to come. As judge, God honors the choice we make in our mortal lives as the choice for our immortal lives as well. We either choose union with God or we choose separation from God for all eternity. Scary? You bet! But there is hope, and the good news is that we still have time to choose. As Sir Richard told the people who were searching for the Holy Grail in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” “Choose wisely.” God bless.

Poland archbishop slammed Prison ministry to over sex abuse comments offer concert, meal WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The leader of Poland’s Catholic Church has come under a wave of condemnation by appearing to suggest that children are partly to blame for being sexually abused by priests. Archbishop Jozef Michalik, head of Poland’s influential Episcopate, was commenting this month on revelations about Polish pedophile priests. A child from a troubled family, Michalik told reporters, “seeks closeness with others and may get lost and may get the other person involved, too.” The words triggered an immediate uproar — one that Michalik tried to stamp out the same day by apologizing and saying he had been misunderstood. He had not, he said, meant to suggest that child victims were in any way responsible. But the damage was done. Ordinary citizens joined prominent politicians in expressing outrage, and intense debate continues more than two weeks later. The media pointed out that Michalik had supported a parish priest convicted in 2004 of child sex abuse, and one of the priest’s victims said she was horrified by Michalik’s latest remarks. “Archbishop Michalik’s words make us feel fear and revulsion,” Ewa Orlowska said. The archbishop’s comments forced the Episcopate’s spokesman, the Rev. Jozef Kloch, to state that Poland’s church has “zero tolerance” for pedophilia but that it needs to learn how to approach and talk about the matter. The controversy has since led bishops under Michalik to apologize for “priests who have harmed children.” It all comes amid a tide

A child from a troubled family, Michalik told reporters, “seeks closeness with others and may get lost and may get the other person involved, too.” Archbishop Jozef Michalik Head of Poland’s Episcopate

• of allegations that Poland’s church is sweeping cases of sex abuse under the carpet, putting it at odds with Vatican efforts since 2001 to punish abusers. The scrutiny has also further undermined the church’s status in Poland as a moral and political leader — cemented by Polish-born Pope John Paul II through his critical role in inspiring the fight against communism. The church’s defenders say that priests are being singled out for condemnation when teachers and sports coaches have also been caught sexually abusing kids. John Paul himself came under criticism for a reluctance to heed accusations against priests. While the Vatican in 2001 ordered bishops to submit cases of alleged pedophilia to the Holy See’s review, it was largely the initiative of then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. After the church sex abuse scandal erupted in 2002 in the United States, Ratzinger pressed for faster ways to permanently remove abusers from the church. The crackdown against pedophile priests gained intensity once Ratzinger became Benedict XVI. In 2011, Benedict instructed bishops’ conferences around

the world to submit their own guidelines for keeping molesters out of the priesthood and to protect children. Poland’s Episcopate has issued guidelines for the church’s punishment of priests and support for the victims. But it sees no need to report priests to state investigators and says that the financial compensation rests with the wrongdoer, not with the church. That approach may soon be tested by a man who is readying Poland’s first sex abuse lawsuit against the church. In several countries, including the U.S., Canada and Australia, the church has been paying millions in compensation over sex abuse cases. Michalik also recently raised eyebrows by saying that the roots of pedophilia lay in pornography and divorce, both of which are “painful and long-lasting wounds.” The debate started last month after Dominican Republic investigators revealed child sex abuse allegations against two Polish clergymen: Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, the Vatican’s ambassador, and Rev. Wojciech Gil, a parish priest. Wesolowski has been forcibly removed by the Vatican. Gil has denied sex abuse and suggested that Dominican drug mafia is taking revenge on him for his educational work.

Family enjoys barbecued meatballs made in oven We awoke to a world full of snow flurries. The flakes were big and flaky but none of it stuck to the ground. It was enough to get the children excited about winter weather, especially sledding. My husband Joe started our coal stove which helps keep the house cozy on these cold mornings. A few mornings we’ve had temperatures in the upper 20s. Leaves are emptying off the trees fast. What colorful scenes painted by our Master Artist! The sun hasn’t been out too much this week. It seems the solar freezer is still keeping charged enough though. This colder weather has made the deer move around more. Timothy and Mose (the girls’ special

friends) have both been lucky and each has shot a deer with their compound bows this month. Benjamin, 14, and Joseph, 11, take turns THE going with AMISH Joe when goes COOK he crossbow hunting for Lovina Eicher deer. Next week will already be the first nine weeks of school over. Teacher conferences are already being scheduled. Where has the time gone so fast?

Last week one day sister Emma and her two daughters, my daughters Susan, 17, and Verena, 15, and I cleaned an Amish lady’s house. It was a pretty big house. It had four rooms and a bathroom upstairs and three bedrooms downstairs. The six of us washed all the walls, ceilings, windows and some furniture in the whole house. We were tired when we finished but were glad to help her out. Her health hasn’t been the best and she recently had a hospital stay. She fixed lunch for us, which was delicious! We had packed our lunch but her hot meal tasted a lot better than our cold sandwiches. My neck was sore the next day from all the overhead washing. The wall mops are so much easier than

when we would have to use a stepladder and wash the walls and ceiling with rags. We are still having tomatoes but they are the green ones that we picked and are letting them ripen. The taste isn’t as good as when they are picked red from the garden. Applesauce is being canned by a lot of women in the community. I still have plenty so I didn’t need to can any. We are enjoying apples for fresh eating. Such a healthy snack. With the colder weather, winter coats are being pulled out of the closets. Before long also snow pants, mittens and scarves. It gets darker earlier at night so our evenings seem to come earlier.

I tried this meatball recipe this week. Everyone seemed to like it. I thought it was easy to make. I made spaghetti to go along with them. A blessed autumn to all!

First-time grandma is crushed when told to stay home DEAR ABBY: I recently found out that after 13 years of marriage, my son and daughter-in-law are expecting a child; my first grandchild! I was overjoyed at the news. They live about 1,000 miles away from me. I mentioned to my son that I have been looking at flights and want to come out a week before her due date so I’ll be there for the big moment, and stay three to four weeks to help with the baby. I was shocked when he told me they don’t want me to visit until at least three weeks after the birth, and stay for one week MAX. He said my daughterin-law will need time to heal, and they both need time to adjust to being parents before they have guests. I am not a “guest.”

I am the grandmother! I was also told not to expect to take care of the baby because it is “their” job. It hurts so bad not to be wanted to share in the joy of the new baby. I have always dreamed of watching my DEAR grandchild take his ABBY or her first breath, and see the look Jeanne Phillips on my son’s face when he holds his child for the first time. Is there anything I can do to change their minds and allow me to be there for my son at

this important moment? Do you agree that they are being unreasonable and cruel? — FAMILY FIRST IN FLORIDA DEAR FAMILY FIRST: I’m sure you are a loving mother, but I don’t agree, and I doubt you can change their minds. If it is going to take three weeks for your daughter-in-law to heal, it appears the baby’s birth will be by C-section, and she will need time to regain her strength. The new parents will also need time to adjust to the baby’s sleep and feeding schedules. They will be sleep-deprived, and she will be nursing every few hours and not up for company. While you have always dreamed of being present at your grandchild’s birth, the reality is your son and

daughter-in-law would prefer this intimate moment be shared by them alone. I’m sorry you are hurt, truly. Let them know you are willing to help them in any way you can on their terms, and take your cues from them. Do not take any of this personally. DEAR ABBY: My grandmother died recently after a long life. A cousin decided that all of the grandchildren should chip in for an expensive floral arrangement. I reluctantly participated after my wife said it would be “cheap” of me to refuse. I had a closer relationship with Grandma than most of my cousins did, but I felt it was an odd request. I have always understood that flowers were sent to the grieving family. In this instance, we WERE

the family. It felt like we were sending condolences to ourselves. Am I wrong, or was I just being cheap, as my wife suggested? — MOURNING IN NEVADA DEAR MOURNING: Please accept my sympathy for your loss. Your assumption that families do not provide flowers at a loved one’s funeral was incorrect. It is very common for family members to arrange for a floral display or spray of flowers for a deceased relative’s casket. At a sad time like this, it is never wrong to err on the side of being generous, and I’m glad that is what you did. DEAR ABBY: I’m in fifth grade, and I have noticed that teachers pick favorites. I’d like to know if or how I could be one. — NERVOUS STUDENT IN

CALIFORNIA DEAR NERVOUS STUDENT: Teachers have favorites for various reasons. Sometimes it happens because they see something in a child that reminds them of how they were at that age. With others it’s because the student shows an interest in the subjects being taught, isn’t disruptive and always tries his or her best. And that is what I recommend you do.

Low interest rates continue to depress risk-free returns DEAR BRUCE: What plan would average 7 percent? I am a 69-year-old lady in Georgia. I have to take money out of my 403 this year. I need to invest my money somewhere else. My money market account has earned less than 2 percent in four years. What do you suggest? — J.M., via email DEAR J.M.: Many people are asking the same question you are. If you are going to invest your money in CDs and money markets, you are going to be torpedoed. There is pressure being exerted by the Federal Reserve to depress interest rates to discourage inflation. This may not be good for elderly people such as yourself, who wish to invest and hope to live on the proceeds, unless they think outside of the box. I realize that as soon I mention the stock market, many people go into a frenzy. The stock market goes up and down. If you can’t afford to lose money, and that is the driving force in your investment strategy, you are, unfortunately, condemned to get a tiny return, and that is criminal. On the other hand, if you go to a decent broker and explain that you are prepared to take a degree of risk and you take his or her suggestions on investing in major American companies like the Wal-Marts of the world

(companies that are going to be around for a long time), I believe there is little risk in that type of investment. Yes, these stocks will go up and go down, but on balance, over a period of time, they will give SMART you the 6 MONEY percent to 7 percent that I think is not Bruce Williams unreasonable.

DEAR BRUCE: Because of a poor credit score, my daughter was offered a “rent to own” contract on a home. The terms were between $2,000 and $2,500 down, not applied to rent, but applied to a down payment, and between $600 and $700 a month for rent, with $100 per month added to the down payment. It would be a five-year lease. The mortgager would “help” her fix her credit so that at the end of five years, she would be able to qualify for a mortgage. When she asked about the selling price of the home, she was told that it is usually the appraised value of the house. Because the terms were so vague, my husband and I discouraged

Did You Know?

her from proceeding. Have you ever heard of anything like this? — E.P., via email DEAR E.P.: Yes, I have heard of this kind of arrangement, particularly in a market where the home is not really sellable. The $2,000 to $2,500 down tells me two things: Either an amateur is trying to put the deal together, or someone is out to scam people. The selling price should be a specific amount, and it should be stated in the contract along with the amount of the rent and the down payment. All the way around, these kinds of deals can be done, but they are certainly not done in this casual fashion. Your daughter can advertise for this type of arrangement, and I think she will probably have takers. The terms will be very specific. The vagueness of this deal indicates that you and your husband were wise to discourage her from proceeding. Send your questions to: Smart Money, P.O. Box 2095, Elfers, FL 34680.

Hepatitis C: Now is a good time to get tested The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force have recommended that all baby boomers (those born between 1945 and 1965) should be screened for hepatitis C virus (HCV). Since I have taken care of many patients with HCV and I am the Noble County health officer, it seemed to me that I should check out this recommendation by experiencing it myself. Therefore, I recently had a blood test for that purpose. Unlike some things I have experienced in medical care, I was able to find out the price of the test right away. For me, it was $89. (Since I was having a test for something else, there were no other fees, like a phlebotomy charge for getting my blood drawn.) Then, I waited for more than a week to get the result (negative in my case). HCV can give little or no significant symptoms, but can result in cancer and liver failure many years later. No

matter how careful I am, knowing that I do not have this virus is a relief to me since I deal with blood and other body fluids on a regular basis. Because I am a DR. TERRY health care provider, GAFF my risk for HCV is higher than the general population. Therefore, I am not really a good example for HCV screening. However, the prevalence of HCV among persons born between 1945 and 1965 is thought to be 3.25 percent, which sounds small until one realizes that this represents approximately three quarters of cases of chronic HCV infection in the U.S. Other groups of people who are at more risk than average for HCV are those who received blood transfu-

sions before 1992 (when bloodbank blood began to be screened for HCV), IV drug users and even people with tattoos, to name a few. These people clearly should be screened for HCV. You might ask, what about the people with no apparent risk factors? This is where the controversy about testing all baby boomers is centered. In that low-risk group, there may be potential harm with screening. It is true that new-generation anti-HCV screening is accurate more than 99 percent of the time. But even though false-positive HCV antibody tests are extremely rare, they still happen. Complications from HCV treatment are common. But serious complications are rare. The reductions in the risks for liver failure (cirrhosis) and death with HCV treatment are generally thought to outweigh the risks of therapy. It would be wonderful to have a randomized screening

“HCV can give little or no significant symptoms, but can result in cancer and liver failure many years later … A lot of people out there are unknowingly carrying this dangerous virus around inside them. Dr. Terry Gaff

• study with thousands of participants to fully evaluate screening for HCV. But it would require years to even set up the research, and many, many more to complete it. People born between 1945 and 1965 simply do not have that kind of time to wait. Since many middleaged baby boomers have regular blood testing for the diabetes, cholesterol levels and assorted other chronic illnesses, it would not be difficult for your doctor to recommend an anti-HCV antibody test at some point.

However, if that recommendation does not happen, you can ask for the test. The overall incidence of HCV infection appears to have declined over the past 10 years, which likely relates to bloodbank screening and more awareness of high risk behaviors. However, a lot of people out there are unknowingly carrying this dangerous virus around inside them. In fact, among blood donors from 2010 the new positive HCV antibody tests were 72 per 100,000. That may not seem like

many, but it was after 18 years of blood donor testing had eliminated everyone who tested positive up to that point. In summary, the time for screening is now because baby boomers are in a time window when screening and treatment should still add substantially more years of quality living. That window will not stay open forever. So, for those born between 1945 and 1965, it is time to donate blood or ask your health care provider to test you for hepatitis C. If you test positive, the HCV evaluation and treatment is becoming simpler and should be started immediately. If the test is negative, you do not need to be tested again for a long time, if ever. DR.

Feds post food allergy guidelines for schools ATLANTA (AP) — The federal government is issuing its first guidelines to schools on how to protect children with food allergies. The voluntary guidelines call on schools to take such steps as restricting nuts, shellfish or other foods that can cause allergic reactions, and make sure emergency allergy medicine — like EpiPens — are available. About 15 states — and numerous individual schools or school districts — already have policies of their own. “The need is here” for a more comprehensive, standardized way for schools to deal with this issue, said Dr. Wayne Giles, who oversaw development of the advice for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Food allergies are a growing concern. A recent CDC survey estimated that about 1 in 20 U.S. children have food allergies — a 50 percent increase from the late 1990s. Experts aren’t sure why cases are rising. Many food allergies are mild and something children grow out of. But severe cases may cause anaphylactic shock or even death from eating, say, a peanut. The guidelines released Wednesday were required by a 2011 federal law. Peanuts, tree nuts, milk and shellfish are among the food that most often most trigger reactions. But experts say more than 170 foods are

known to cause reactions. The new advice call for schools to do such things as: • Identify children with food allergies. • Have a plan to prevent exposures and manage any reactions. • Train teachers or others how to use medicines like epinephrine injectors, or have medical staff to do the job. • Plan parties or field trips free of foods that might cause a reaction; and designate someone to carry epinephrine. • Make sure classroom activities are inclusive. For example, don’t use Peanut M&M’s in a counting lesson, said John Lehr, chief executive of an advocacy group that worked on the guidelines, Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE). Carolyn Duff, an elementary school nurse in Columbia, S.C., said she was glad to see the guidelines. “Many schools may not have policies. And if they do, maybe the policies aren’t really comprehensive,” said Duff, president of the National Association of School Nurses. U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey, a New York Democrat who worked on the law that led to the guidelines, said in a statement that they are a big step toward giving parents “the confidence that their children will stay safe and healthy at school.”

Mark Risinger, 16, checks his Facebook page on his computer Oct. 26 as his mother, Amy Risinger, looks on at their home in Glenview, Ill. The recommendations are bound to prompt eye-rolling and LOLs from many teens but an influential pediatrician’s group says unrestricted media use has been linked with violence,

cyber-bullying, school woes, obesity, lack of sleep and a host of other problems. Mark’s mom said she agrees with restricting kids’ time on social media but that deciding on other media limits should be up to parents.

Docs to parents: Limit kids’ texts, tweets, online CHICAGO (AP) — Doctors 2 parents: Limit kids’ tweeting, texting & keep smartphones, laptops out of bedrooms. #goodluckwiththat. The recommendations are bound to prompt eye-rolling and LOLs from many teens but an influential pediatricians group says parents need to know that unrestricted media use can have serious consequences. It’s been linked with violence, cyberbullying, school woes, obesity, lack of sleep and a host of other problems. It’s not a major cause of these troubles, but “many parents are clueless” about the profound impact media exposure can have on their children, said Dr. Victor Strasburger, lead author of the new American Academy of Pediatrics policy “This is the 21st century and they need to get with it,” said Strasburger, a University of New Mexico adolescent medicine specialist. The policy is aimed at all kids, including those who use smartphones, computers and other Internet-connected devices. It expands the academy’s longstanding recommendations on banning televisions from children’s and teens’ bedrooms and limiting entertainment screen

time to no more than two hours daily. Under the new policy, those two hours include using the Internet for entertainment, including Facebook, Twitter, TV and movies; online homework is an exception. The policy statement cites a 2010 report that found U.S. children aged 8 to 18 spend an average of more than seven hours daily using some kind of entertainment media. Many kids now watch TV online and many send text messages from their bedrooms after “lights out,” including sexually explicit images by cellphone or Internet, yet few parents set rules about media use, the policy says. “I guarantee you that if you have a 14-year-old boy and he has an Internet connection in his bedroom, he is looking at pornography,” Strasburger said. The policy notes that three-quarters of kids aged 12 to 17 own cellphones; nearly all teens send text messages, and many younger kids have phones giving them online access. “Young people now spend more time with media than they do in school — it is the leading activity for children and teenagers other than sleeping” the policy says.

Mark Risinger, 16, of Glenview, Ill., is allowed to use his smartphone and laptop in his room, and says he spends about four hours daily on the Internet doing homework, using Facebook and YouTube and watching movies. He said a two-hour Internet time limit “would be catastrophic” and that kids won’t follow the advice, “they’ll just find a way to get around it.” Strasburger said he realizes many kids will scoff at advice from pediatricians — or any adults. “After all, they’re the experts! We’re media-Neanderthals to them,” he said. But he said he hopes it will lead to more limits from parents and schools, and more government research on the effects of media. The policy was published online Monday in the journal Pediatrics. It comes two weeks after police arrested two Florida girls accused of bullying a classmate who committed suicide. Police say one of the girls recently boasted online about the bullying and the local sheriff questioned why the suspects’ parents hadn’t restricted their Internet use. Mark’s mom, Amy

Risinger, said she agrees with restricting kids’ time on social media but that deciding on other media limits should be up to parents. “I think some children have a greater maturity level and you don’t need to be quite as strict with them,” said Risinger, who runs a communications consulting firm. Her 12-year-old has sneaked a laptop into bed a few times and ended up groggy in the morning, “so that’s why the rules are now in place, that that device needs to be in mom and dad’s room before he goes to bed.” Sara Gorr, a San Francisco sales director and mother of girls, ages 13 and 15, said she welcomes the academy’s recommendations. Her girls weren’t allowed to watch the family’s lone TV until a few years ago. The younger one has a tablet, and the older one has a computer and smartphone, and they’re told not to use them after 9 p.m. “There needs to be more awareness,” Gorr said. “Kids are getting way too much computer time. It’s bad for their socialization, it’s overstimulating, it’s numbing them.”

Conference eyes preservation as development tool INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Americans drawn to historic areas where they can connect with the nation’s past, their family’s roots or just take in the sights are fueling tourism that’s in the spotlight during a national gathering of preservation experts this week in Indianapolis. The National Preservation Conference is being held at Indianapolis’ historic Union Station and other sites. Wide-ranging seminars include sessions toasting some of the success stories historic preservation can foster by helping spark revitalization in neighborhoods and city centers. Cultural heritage tourism — travelers drawn to areas steeped in history and unique local flavor — is big business in the U.S. Nearly 130 million Americans make such pilgrimages each year, contributing about $171 billion to local economies, according to a report this year from Mandala Research LLC. That study also found that eight in 10 leisure travelers visit cultural or heritage sites and spend more than other travelers, said Amy Webb, field director for the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Denver field office. “If you’re going to travel, you want to see something you can’t see at home. So they go someplace where there are unique buildings that have stories to tell of that place,” she said. Such travelers typically visit an area’s shops, parks and restaurants to sample the local scene, giving them what Webb calls a “multidimensional experience that’s not just about going to a museum.” The economic benefits of cultural heritage tourism is another argument local preservationists should make when they fight to save old buildings or other sites in danger of being razed, said Webb, who is among about 2,000 preservation experts

attending the five-day conference, which ends Saturday. Cultural heritage tourism has paid off for decades in Savannah, Ga., which boasts the nation’s largest National Historic Landmark District and 14 other historic districts. The city near the Atlantic Coast has more than 20 city squares laden with museums, antebellum mansions, monuments and Revolutionary and Civil War sites. Daniel Carey, president and CEO of the Historic Savannah Foundation, said more than 12 million tourists visit the Savannah area each year, adding more than $2 billion to its economy. Carey said Savannah, founded in 1733, has 3 centuries of history to offer visitors, including about 1,500 historic homes. “It’s an authentic, historic, architecturally interesting and pedestrian friendly place. They can go really at their own leisure and soak in the history and the culture,” he said. Philadelphia, one of the nation’s most historic cities, has been working to capitalize on cultural and historical tourism by attracting visitors to neighborhoods beyond the traditional tourist stops of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The city’s tourism bureau recently put the spotlight on nine neighborhoods that boast their own historic attractions as well as restaurants, bars, galleries and other development, said Patrick Hauck, director of neighborhood preservation for the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia. “What’s great about cultural tourism in cities like Philadelphia is that it’s not just about what happened in the past, it’s also about what’s happening now. Those two really work together,” he said.


‘Ender’s Game’ succeeds on several levels My mom always had a rule, which I still largely follow even as an adult: “You must read the book before you see the movie.” It’s a good rule for kids, because it gets them to read — not that I needed any help on that front — but as an adult, it hasn’t always served me well.

He perfectly captures important scenes that were train from a very young age to defeat a destructive race of aliens. Under the watchful eyes of Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and Major Anderson (Viola Davis), Ender quickly rises through the ranks at the isolated, outer-space military training school he attends. He is pushed to exhibit the fierceness of his violent brother, Peter (Jimmy Pinchak), and the empathy of his sister, Valentine (Abigail Breslin). I was afraid that “Ender’s Game” was going to neuter the thought-provoking themes of the book, which takes a hard look at the morality of war, in favor of cool, wham-pow battle sequences. I was pleasantly surprised that the movie kept a lot of aspects of the book’s main themes. In fact, the movie was a little more subtle about asking the tough questions, as opposed to the hit-youover-the-head nature of the book. But, never fear, there are still some truly spectacular action sequences that are fun to watch and deserve a lot of praise. One of the centerpieces of the battle school is a zero-gravity globe where trainees float around among obstacles, shooting one another with guns that freeze their limbs. It’s fun to watch the kids floating around, and I was impressed with how seamless and real it seemed. Special effects have truly taken a step forward in the past few years, and it’s those leaps that allow good science fiction like “Ender’s Game” to be filmed. Even five years ago, it probably couldn’t have happened. I was also pleased with how streamlined the plot of “Ender’s Game” was. One of the biggest problems with movie adaptations of books is that they suffer from bloat and pacing problems, because filmmakers try to stuff every scene from the book into the film. Screenwriter/director Gavin Hood is to be commended, then, because this is one of the slickest adaptations of a book I’ve seen on the big screen in years. Hood made the tough choices to take out several subplots - most notably, an interesting but ultimately marginal subplot about Ender’s siblings back on Earth. He also combined

Vegas looks for attention with new music festival LAS VEGAS (AP) — A cadre of volunteers and entrepreneurs are putting the finishing touches on what they hope will be downtown Las Vegas’ debutant ball: a sprawling music and food festival that takes over the city’s core this weekend. The inaugural Life is Beautiful event boasts many stock festival components: dozens of indie acts, including big names like Beck and Vampire Weekend, whimsical flourishes like a pop-up park, and an array of art imported from the Burning Man desert carnival. And it has something else: Financial backing and logistical support from Tony Hsieh, the Internet billionaire who founded Zappos, the online clothing store, and is trying to remake Las Vegas into a world class city. Without that support, the festival would have gone to another, more established town, according to founder Rehan Choudhry. Hsieh has committed to transforming the derelict heart of Las Vegas, pledging $350 million to redevelopment, recruiting young people from the coasts to work for his Downtown Project, and buying up about 20 square blocks of land. During a recent tour of the 15 blocks that will host the inaugural festival, Hsieh and Choudhry worked through last minute issues. Hearing that Choudhry was running low on rooms for staff, Hsieh offered up a few in a motel across the street, one of several that the Downtown Project is gutting and renovating. Not enough Star Wars storm trooper costumes for festival-goers to wear in headphone-powered silent disco? How about just handing out white outfits instead. Many of the elements installed downtown for Life is Beautiful will stay after the festival is gone, including huge murals commissioned from international street artists,

Part of the empty Western Hotel has also been torn down to make room for the event, which is expected to attract 50,000 attendees, making it a fifth the size of South by Southwest, the monster music, film and ideas festival held each spring in Austin, Texas. Choudhry, a former casino entertainment manager who sports leather bracelets and perfectly quaffed hair, said he expects the festival to grow symbiotically with the gentrifying city. “It’s the way Austin grew so quickly, with South by Southwest coming back year after year. All the stuff they were creating started becoming more and more permanent,” he said, clutching a Red Bull. For Hsieh, the festival will be a way to reintroduce Las Vegas to itself. Choudhry says 40 percent of tickets have gone to Las Vegas residents, most of

whom have never spent time downtown, a neighborhood still best known for the Fremont Street Experience, a walking mall next to the town’s oldest casinos that sprawls out beneath a long metal canopy rigged with hourly light show. During the past few years, the adjacent area, dubbed Fremont East, has become the closest thing Las Vegas has to a traditional neighborhood, with cutesy restaurants, high-concept bars and a cozy cafe all clustered within walking distance. The festival may be the most high profile of the 200 or so Hsieh’s organization is sponsoring. In addition to 70 bands and DJs, Life Is Beautiful will feature wine tastings, dozens of food vendors, two Ferris wheels, and the spectacle of pop icons swapping instruments for aprons and cooking alongside celebrity chefs. Side stages will feature performances grabbed from the Strip, including Cirque

du Solei acrobatics. There are reasons the festival might not make the splash organizers hope. Prices are relatively high — $100 for a day — with fewer big names than a typical summer music festival. There’s also the possibility of competition from the Strip, which doesn’t need a festival because it is a festival. It’s unclear that people in Las Vegas have an appetite for the more obscure acts further down the ticket, and not everyone is drawn to Life is Beautiful’s warm and fuzzy aesthetic, with its red and purple heart logo. A group of local punks are staging a counter-festival this weekend, with a title that borrows the “Life is” construction, but ends on a bleaker, more obscene, note. But even the organizer of that festival, Jack Johnson, gives credit to the downtown effort. “We’re just capitalizing on the attention,” he said. “The party spirit is contagious.”

Graceful home with flexible layout

Q. Jeff, my house is always cold around the edges of my floor. I have a basement underneath in part of the house and a crawl in the rest. Is there anything I can do to not have those cold floors? Margery of Angola A. This time of year that is a good question and an area of the house insulation envelope that is often overlooked. The rim joist area that sits on the foundation wall is a prime area to address in trying to better seal SQUARE your home. this area CORNERS At often called band joist Jeff Deahl the it connects to the sill plate on top of your foundation. Several pieces of structural wood all come together at this spot and form the floor before the walls are assembled on top. Nasty cold air can find its way in through all these seams and into your house around the edges. Air infiltration can account for as much as 40 percent of the heat loss of a typical home. You want to either caulk or foam seal all of these seams and any areas that pipes or wires come through the band board. All these seams and holes if they were all put together could be like having a window open in winter. Once you have air sealed all the sources of air infiltration, add at least an R-10 insulation or have three feet of foam sprayed in this box joist space and down the foundation wall to at least 36 inches below the exterior grade. Sealing up these areas can also help keep out unwanted bugs and pests.

Midcentury cookie jars recall nursery rhymes The cookie jar held a place of honor in American kitchens in the 1950s and 1960s when it was part of the overall home décor as well as an important piece of serving ware. Cookie jars were of good size in order to hold many cookies for America’s growing families in the years following World War II. The fact that these vintage collectibles were positioned in “the front lines” (a.k.a., on the kitchen countertop) of busy post-war American kitchens makes their condition a vital trait when assessing their value on the collectibles market. Chips, cracks and scratches to the surface decoration are key factors when evaluating vintage cookie jars. The American baby boom sparked cookie jar production as Americans were having more babies and eating more cookies during the late 1940s and 1950s. Over the decades, cookie jars featured popular characters and cultural icons such as Felix the Cat, Howdy Doody, Mickey Mouse, Snow White, World War II American G. I.s and Betty Boop, to name a few. The variety of cookie jars and the opportunity to collect so many different examples may contribute to the fact that many collectors just can’t stop collecting

these cherished objects from childhood. With cookie jars as with cookies, it’s difficult to have just one. I have reviewed cookie jar collections all over the United States and most are assembled in large numbers of cookie jars dating from the 1950s with values for the collections reaching into the $10,000 to $20,000 range. Some examples of the market for good quality ART & cookie jars in good ANTIQUES condition from the mid 1900s include a Brush Pottery company cookie in the shape of a cow Dr. Lori jar resembling the famous Borden milk mascot named Elsie from circa 1945-50 is worth $500. McCoy’s Aunt Jemima cookie jar sold for $325. A Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery firm’s Oscar cookie jar brought $500, and the popular Little Red Riding Hood cookie jar by Hull commanded $1,500 recently. Nursery rhyme characters were among the most common types of cookie jars such as Mother Goose, Humpty Dumpty, the

Little Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe and Puss ‘n Boots, to name a few. It makes perfect sense that nursery rhymes would be the featured theme for cookie jars as the characters were recognizable to youngsters. In the late 1980s, after the death of Pop artist Andy Warhol, the cookie jar market enjoyed a market spike. Warhol was an enthusiastic collector of cookie jars and viewed them as important objects of American culture. His famous estate auction brought cookie jar collecting to the forefront and put the sweet collectibles on the map. Warhol’s collection of hundreds of vintage cookie jars brought more than $250,000 at auction. The Warhol auction attracted new collectors to amass American cookie jars. Today, collectors remain committed to the cookie jar category and amass large numbers of jars from Maine to California.


This Little Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe cookie jar is worth $300.

Fall is best time to apply lawn fertilizer Applying fertilizer is one of the most important procedures done as far as lawn care goes as it influences grass color, helps it deal with stress and prevents weed invasion and disease. Two important factors to consider when applying a fertilizer are when and how much. Fall fertilization has been proven to be the best time for application as it helps to produce the healthiest turf throughout the year. Some of the benefits of fertilizing in the fall are that you will have a lengthened period of green, you will have an earlier green-up in the spring without the excessive top-growth and the energy stored in the plant and available for growth remains higher throughout the spring and summer thus resulting in a reduced incidence of summer disease occurance. Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) are the three major nutrients needed by grass. Nitrogen gives the grass it’s deep, rich color and promotes vigorous growth, Potassium builds strong roots and Phosphorus is important in stimulating early root growth and promoting plant vigor. It is recommended to obtain a soil test before applying a lawn fertilizer so you can determine what mineral elements your soil needs. There are two types

of Nitrogen, quick release (soluble) and slow release (insoluble). A good turf fertilizer will contain some of both. The slow release will provide nitrogen over a period of time but is not available to the plant during cool weather. The fast release will provide nitrogen KNOWLEDGE almost TO GROW immediately after applicaKaren Weiland tion and during cool weather. To avoid fertilizer burn do not apply more than 1 ½ pounds of actual nitrogen per 1000 square feet at one time, spread it evenly, apply when foliage is dry and then water it in after application. Return your grass clippings to the lawn. It’s free fertilizer. Grass clippings contain valuable nutrients that can generate up to 25 percent of your lawns total fertilizer needs. Photosynthesis is high during the fall even with the cooler temperatures. The higher the photosynthesis, the more energy the plant will store over

the winter and into spring thus producing a healthier grass plant. Mowing off more of the grass blade will result in reduced photosynthetic capacity which will reduce energy storage and a decrease in plant performance the next summer. There is a direct relationship between grass tops and roots. The more tops to the grass plant means more and deeper roots, which in turn means the grass plant can withstand stresses better. One last thing, mulch those tree leaves. Layers of tree leaves can smother and kill the grass beneath it this fall. Layers of tree leaves can also contribute to snow mold, a winter turf disease. Mulching leaves with a mower is much easier than raking, blowing or vacuuming them. Regularly mowing them in the fall will cut them into small pieces that will then filter into the turf.

With a few simple tools you’ll be able to keep your kitchen squeaky clean so it can continue to be the favorite hang-out for the entire family.




Dark and moody, collodion photos make a comeback THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Beekeeper Kellen Henry uses a smoker to calm bees while conducting a hive inspection Oct. 16 at a Feedback Farms hive in Myrtle Village Green community garden in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, in New York. Though New York reversed

a long-standing ban on tending to honeybees in 2010, there are issues beyond legality that potential beekeepers should consider. Beekeeping, especially in an urban area, requires space, time and cooperation with the surrounding community.

To bee? Hobbyist hives require time, money NEW YORK (AP) — There’s no shortage of buzz about beekeeping these days. From environmentalists worried about disappearing colonies to foodies seeking locally sourced liquid gold, lots of new beekeepers are itching to roll down their sleeves. With cities like New York lifting beekeeping bans, and with a wealth of new books, online videos and meet-up groups, learning the basics is easier than ever. But as a hobbyist beekeeper myself, who once moved a hive full of bees from Washington, D.C., to New York during a career change, I can also tell you that the sweet rewards of homemade honey don’t come without some sticky practical challenges. One of those, of course, is facing the bees themselves. “You can learn 99 percent of beekeeping on YouTube, but you need to know that when you’re actually there and you’re digging into a box filled with 50,000 stinging insects, that you’re good with that,” said Chase Emmons, managing partner and apiary director at Brooklyn Grange, a rooftop farm in New York that offers some hands-on training at its hives. Whether you’re creating a small business or just planning to enjoy your own honey, here are some realistic pointers on the money, space and neighborly grace required of a beekeeper.

Location, location, location Where you keep your bees is an important part of how to keep them. A sunny, out-of-the-way spot with good drainage is best. Scope


Bees clamor on their honeycomb during a hive inspection Oct. 16 in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, in New York. In this case, the bees are storing honey in a previously-used honeycomb they’ve sealed with a thin layer of wax so they can save their honey for consumption over the winter.

carefully. They may be easier than buying equipment a la carte but they often include supplies you don’t really need. If you’re handy, you’ll also find ample specs online for building some of your own equipment. When it comes to purchasing, there’s strength in numbers. Joining a bee group is a good way to get in on cheaper bulk orders or shipping discounts, swap used equipment and pass the hat on big purchases, like pricey honey extracting equipment.

Frustrated by the ease at which digital photos can be taken and doctored, some artists are kicking it old school: They’ve revived wet plate collodion photography, a medium invented and popular during the mid-1800s. Complicated, cumbersome (it requires darkroom work on the spot) and potentially hazardous, the collodion process uses raw chemicals in a race against the clock. And that’s why collodion photographers love it so. “There’s something about these hands-on, historical processes, you’re so in control, you’re making your film from scratch . (but) you’re subject to physics and the chemistry, and then you’re trying to make something in your mind’s eye — the composition and lighting — while maintaining this technical finesse,” says Quinn Jacobson, a Denver-based photographer. “There’s great satisfaction in accomplishing that. There’s a level of satiety that you don’t get from working in digital or even film.” Collodion portraits and landscape images have fine details but appear dark and moody — even haunting or ghostly. “The aesthetic is kind of a half-remembered dream,” says Jacobson. The process involves coating a surface, usually glass or aluminum, with a mixture of collodion, ether, alcohol and two salts that dries to a tacky, clear film. The collodion is derived from a flammable compound known as guncotton (in other uses, it’s flash paper) dissolved in sulfuric and nitric acids. The plate is made light-sensitive in a bath of

silver nitrate, after which it is exposed to light. The image exposure can take seconds or several minutes, depending on available light and photographer preference. It’s developed and then fixed, or stabilized, in a solution of potassium cyanide. With longer exposure and an added step, a negative for printing can be made. Of all the chemicals in the process, potassium cyanide is the most dangerous. “A tenth of a gram is enough to kill a horse,” says wedding photographer and collodion fan Matt Alberts. “There’s 18 grams in my fix. That’s kind of scary.” Alberts, also of Denver, learned the collodion craft from Jacobson nearly a year ago. He was motivated partly by learning that his ancestor, Lowell Gilmore of Albany, N.Y., worked in the medium more than a century ago. Alberts has invested thousands of dollars in the collodion process, which for him captures the essence of photography. “I’m creating something just with light and my hands. It feels more like art,” he says. Jacobson makes portraits of the “marginalized” — day laborers, the homeless, convicted felons. In his Ghost Dance project, he also documents sites in the West where troops massacred Native Americans in the mid- to late 1800s. He’s concerned he won’t be able to capture the land’s terrible past, but thinks the moody collodion — in use during those times — will help. “It adds that mystery and darkness and that kind of melancholy feel to the whole project,” says Jacobson. “I couldn’t do this in film or digital. They’d be straight-up landscapes.”

Scratching the itch out a location that won’t trip up unsuspecting neighbors, curious pets or repairmen. Your hive should also be convenient for frequent inspections. Remember you’ll be carrying equipment and removing heavy boxes of honey at harvest time. If you have to scale a rickety roof ladder to see your bees, you might be tempted to neglect your duties. Make sure your landlord is on board and beekeeping is legal in your city. Then take some time to sell the idea to your neighbors. Emmons recommends coming armed with a few jars of honey to sweeten the deal. “The last thing you need is unhappy neighbors,” he said. “You can catch more flies with honey.”

pests and swarms, as well as extracting honey, will require some time and even some hard, physical work over the course of the year. A deep hive chamber full of honey can weigh as much as 90 pounds, and actively managing your hive will require lifting and maneuvering those bulky boxes. You’ll also be suiting up in heavy clothing and working in the hot sun. As a new beekeeper, you should make time to attend a class or meet-up group on top of your bee yard work. You might even meet a potential partner to help you shoulder the load.

Honey money

It might cost you around $400 to Not just a walk get set with wooden hive in the park equipment, tools and the The good news is you bees themselves, though don’t have to hire a bee much of your equipment can sitter when you leave town be used for several years on vacation.

Using good practices and inspecting the hive at appropriate times can go a long way toward minimizing stings. But they will happen from time to time. Assuming you don’t have a severe allergy to apitoxin, the venom in honey-bee stings, the worst you’ll have to endure is some local pain, itching and swelling that’s treatable with over-thecounter medicine. If you’re afraid of bee stings, remember it’s OK to go heavy on the protective clothing if it encourages you to visit the hive, especially while you’re getting used to handling the bees. Don’t let beekeeper machismo intimidate you into doing hive inspections in a T-shirt if it makes you nervous. In general, be flexible to trying a different approach if yours isn’t working. “When you have 10 beekeepers in a room, you’re going to have 12 opinions. Humans have been doing it for 10,000 years and there are really strong opinions,” Emmons said. “Go with what you’re comfortable with.”


This photo provided by Matt Alberts shows Walter Lacey, a lifelong skateboarder in Denver, in an image made by photographer Matt Alberts. Wet plate collodion photography, invented in 1851, has experienced a resurge in recent years as photographers turn to this antiquated method for its moody, haunting images and complicated, hands-on process. “I’m creating something just with light and my hands,” says Alberts. “It feels more like art.”

Some vegetables come into their own in autumn BY LEE REICH The Associated Press

How green is your vegetable garden? Just because summer’s long gone and frost is in the air doesn’t mean your garden has to be a scene of tawny colors, limp leaves and withered stems. My garden remains very green, and the first step was staying ahead of the weeds. Especially after midsummer, we gardeners tend to ease up on weed control, and it’s then that heat-loving annuals like lamb’s-quarters, purslane and pigweed start to take hold. For me, cooler weather brought quackgrass and

creeping Charlie stealthily trying to — well, creep — in at the garden’s edges. Regular weeding forays through summer and early fall took but a few minutes — much less than the effort that firmly established weeds would have required. But lack of weeds alone doth not a garden make, and it was season-long, carefully chosen plantings that provided the lush greenery itself.

Autumn salads begin with spring sowings I started planting for the present way back in early spring. I sowed kale seeds

then which started yielding tasty leaves in early summer and will continue to do so for weeks to come. Brussels sprouts — for those who like them — would also be sown in early spring for a harvest that begins about now. If you had stopped by my garden in late spring, you would have caught me sowing broccoli and cabbage seeds. It was odd to be planting these vegetables just as they were ready for harvest from early spring sowings. Yes, an early spring sowing of broccoli can keep up steam right into fall, but sometimes such plants peter out by midsummer. So I also start some fresh new plants for fall

harvest. Come early summer, I planted seeds of endive and escarole, a bed of which now stands out in the vegetable garden like a frothing sea of greenery. Through summer I continued planting, selecting vegetables that would enjoy crisp, fall weather, then sowing their seeds according to the number of days they take to mature. So turnips and winter radishes went in in early August, then small radishes a couple of weeks later. Sometime during those weeks I also found space to sow parsley, rutabagas, and autumn’s most tender and lush green, mâche.

Other vegetables that contribute to an autumn garden’s vibrancy include Chinese cabbage and spinach. All these vegetables are green, lush through much of autumn and tasty.

All greenery is not for eating My last planting of the season, around the middle of September, was just for lushness, not for eating. That planting was of cover crops, which are grown solely for the good of the soil. The cover crop I chose was a mix of oats and field peas. I sowed them in any beds that were cleared of summer crops —

beans or corn, for example — and were not slated to receive any of the aforementioned fall vegetables. Now, at about 8 inches high and still growing, the oats and peas will keep rain from washing away soil or leaching out nutrients, shade out any weeds trying to get a foothold, and enrich the ground with valuable organic matter. After frigid weather kills these plants in January or February, their rotting roots will leave behind channels for water and air. Best of all, a dense stand of cover crops, like the rest of the greenery, simply looks prettier than bare soil and decrepit plants.
