EN board approves personnel changes GOOD MORNING Shipshewana to host Holiday Light Parade SHIPSHEWANA — The holiday season kicks off Saturday in Shipshewana with the town’s fifth annual Holiday Light Parade. Parade units decked out in their holiday finest, including lights, will wind their way along the streets of the small LaGrange County town, finishing in front the Blue Gate Restaurant. Once the parade is complete, officials will light the biggest Christmas tree in town in front of the Blue Gate and officially open this year’s Christmas celebration. The parade is sponsored by the Shipshewana Retail Merchants Association. As many as 4,000 people are expected to line the streets to watch the parade pass. This year’s parade theme is Sleigh Bells in Shipshewana. “This is the first time we’ve put a theme to the parade,” said Gary Zehr, executive director of the merchants association. The parade will start to form around 5 p.m. and should take to the streets no later than 6:15 p.m. “We’re really excited about the parade this year,” Zehr added. “The weather looks great. As the parade passes each store, the merchants turn on their holiday decorations. It’s a wonderful experience.”

KENDALLVILLE — East Noble school board members approved the school district’s personnel changes Wednesday night. School trustees voted 3-1 to approve a list of resignations, with trustee Barb Babcock opposed. Trustees John Wicker and Dexter Lutter and board president Dan Beall voted to approve the administration’s recommendation. Trustees Steve Pyle, Carol

Schellenberg and Dr. David Holliday were absent. Four of the seven trustees constitute a quorum, and a vote is official if a majority of the trustees present approve or disapprove. These resignations were approved: Jennifer Duerk as functional life skills teacher at Wayne Center Elementary effective Nov. 18; Elaine Taulbee as an instructional assistant at East Noble High School effective Nov. 8; Joanne Mazzola as food service worker at Wayne Center

Elementary effective Nov. 8; and Ryan Slone as winter percussion director at East Noble High School effective Oct. 8. Babcock said after the meeting it’s not fair to the school district when a teacher leaves after agreeing to a contract. The district must now find and hire a new teacher after the school year has started. She realizes teachers can resign during the school year for a variety of reasons and the school district has no recourse but to let them go. She looks at the situation

from the school district’s side, and how difficult it is sometimes to find a replacement. It’s a problem that won’t go away, said Babcock. Trustees approved without comment the termination of Steven Koons as sports and fitness instructor at North Side Elementary effective Nov. 4, and the reassignment of food service assistant Beth Neuhaus from Avilla Elementary to Wayne Center Elementary. Jeffery Devers was hired as SEE CHANGES, PAGE A6

ENMS transporting classics into contemporary settings BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — When a cast of East Noble Middle School thespians “modernize” classics such as “Romeo and Juliet,” “Sherlock Holmes,” and “Frankenstein” it can only lead to hilarious results. East Noble Middle School will present “Crumpled Classics” Nov. 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. in the middle school auditorium. Tickets will cost $3 at the door. Retired East Noble librarian and longtime area amateur actress Jo Drudge is directing the show. Drudge also coordinates

the annual Gaslight Playhouse Children’s Theatre Summer Workshop. Asked how many years she has been directing children’s theatre in Kendallville, Drudge laughed and said she doesn’t keep an exact count, but it’s more than 30 years. Drudge is assisted by high school students Michael Johnston and Jocelyn Hutchins. “Crumpled Classics” involves making “Romeo and Juliet,” “Frankenstein,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Sherlock Holmes” and the “Legend of King Arthur” relevant to today’s audiences. While the true authors of the

classics may be rolling in their graves, the audience will be laughing in their seats, according to Drudge. They will see Romeo and Juliet meet in a fast-food restaurant and Frankie Stein try to assemble the perfect prom date. A theatrical agent will become a monster, and a lazy teen will become a king. The 90-minute production uses a minimum of props and costumes with simple, representable sets for each story, according to Drudge. The show is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Services, Inc. and playwright Craig Sodaro.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The 16-day government shutdown didn’t seem to hurt the economy after all. U.S. employers added a surprisingly strong 204,000 jobs in October, the Labor Department said Friday. And they added far more jobs in August and September than previously thought. Activity at service companies and factories also accelerated last month in the midst of the shutdown. All of which suggests the U.S. economy may be sturdier than many analysts had assumed. The unemployment rate rose to 7.3 percent from 7.2 percent in September, the Labor Department said. But that was probably because furloughed federal workers were temporarily counted as unemployed. “The economy weathered the government shutdown surprisingly well,” said Ted Wieseman, an economist at Morgan Stanley. “Businesses looked through the shutdown, remained confident in the growth outlook and kept hiring.” One weak link in the economy recently has been consumers, who spent cautiously over the summer, holding back growth. But the solid job gains in recent months, combined with modest increases in hourly pay, could encourage more spending. Other trends have raised hopes that the economy will remain healthy in coming months: Growing demand for homes should support construction. And auto sales are likely to stay strong because many Americans are buying cars after putting off big purchases since the recession struck nearly six years ago.

Powerful typhoon slams Philippines MANILA, Philippines (AP) — One of the strongest storms on record slammed into the central Philippines on Friday, killing at least four people, forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes and knocking out power and communications in several provinces. But the nation appeared to avoid a major disaster because the rapidly moving typhoon blew away before wreaking more damage, officials said.

Typhoon Haiyan raced across a string of islands from east to west — Samar, Leyte, Cebu and Panay — and lashed beach communities. Nearly 750,000 people were forced to flee their homes. Weather officials said Haiyan had sustained winds of 235 kph (147 mph) with gusts of 275 kph AP (170 mph) when it made landfall.

WASHINGTON — When former Sen. Evan Bayh’s twins were born Nov. 8, 1995, he could hold both sons at the same time, one in each arm. Now, as his sons turn 18, Bayh said he would blow out his back if he tried to pick up either one. “I’m now the shortest man in my house,” he said. “It’s a metaphor for life. It goes by in the blink of an eye.” Bayh, the first Indiana governor since 1830 to become a father while in

In 2012, alcohol-impaired driving in Indiana was linked to 150 fatalities (an increase from 140 fatalities in 2011) and 2,112 injuries. Alcohol-impaired collisions were less than 3 percent of all Indiana crashes, but accounted for 20.3 percent of Indiana 779 traffic fatalities in 2012. Roughly six out of 10 fatalities in alcohol-impaired collisions were the impaired driver from 2008 to 2012. Approximately 80 percent of serious fatal and incapacitating injuries from alcohol-impaired collisions occurring during the 2008-2012 period were suffered by impaired drivers

office, felt as if the whole state was watching when his wife went into labor. Television stations ran live updates, including the details of Susan Bayh’s dilation and contractions. Ever since, Bayh wrote in his 2003 memoir, people in Indiana ask him about the twins more than anything else. Both are seniors at St. Albans college preparatory school in Washington, their father’s alma mater. Nick, an avid tennis player, hasn’t picked a college yet. “Fortunately for him,” Bayh said, “he’s smart like his mother.” Beau has been recruited to play lacrosse for Harvard — which his father jokingly referred to as the “IU of the East.” “Since Indiana and Purdue don’t have lacrosse teams, he had to go to

Harvard instead,” Bayh said. Only Harvard costs a little more than the $350 a semester that Bayh remembers paying as a freshman in Bloomington. When Bayh told Susan that Beau had sealed the deal with Harvard’s lacrosse coach and she would be a “Harvard mom,” Susan started to cry. When Bayh looked up Harvard’s tuition, he said, “then I started crying.” Finances aside, Bayh said he’s been getting “prematurely melancholy” about the prospect of seeing them leave home next August. But could their leaving home clear the way for a return to politics and a possible bid for governor, as some Democrats speculate? “My sons’ leaving home will clear the way for us to clean their rooms!” Bayh responded.

Sunday, November 10 The public is invited and encouraged to attend this special celebration, starting with the 10:30 AM worship service featuring “The Dotsons,” an anointed Southern Gospel Singing family. John and Yavonna Dotson have been singing together for over 22 years. They did their first recording project in October 1998. In February 1999 they were given the opportunity to open for the legendary group, The Kingsmen. Shortly after the concert the phone started ringing with inquiries about booking the Dotsons. They are now in their 11th year of traveling and singing for the Lord with a total of 6 recording projects. Immediately following the morning worship service, there will be a carry-in dinner in the church fellowship hall. There will also be an open house from 2 p.m.-4 p.m.

Privatize everything The market is fine for some things, people will say, but other activities are too important to be left to the market. Or too complicated. Or too fundamental to our democracy. I say: Privatize everything. To some of you, that will sound callous — but failure to privatize services, keeping them in government hands instead, is what impoverishes and kills people. Nothing compassionate about that. Take organ donations. Regulations forbid buying and selling organs, so the market cannot operate. Desperate patients must wait and hope someone gives JOHN out of sheer generosity, that someone dies at just the STOSSEL right time, and that hospital administrators bump their case to the top of the list. In the U.S., 100,000 people are on waiting lists for kidneys. Kidneys make up 80 percent of the organ shortage. We have two kidneys but only need one. Donors could save many lives, but not enough choose to donate. By contrast, in Iran, there’s often a waiting line of willing donors. That’s because in Iran, it’s legal to sell organs. It’s the rare In Iran, it’s legal to sell thing that organs. It’s the rare Iran does right. thing that Iran does People right. still buy and sell organs even when it’s illegal, but, as is so often the case, the black market produces horrors that are unlikely to occur when people can trade in the open. So we get headlines like “Girl smuggled into Britain to have her ‘organs harvested’” and “Chinese boy, 6, has eyes gouged out for organ transplant black market.” Surely, it is better if organ exchanges — like any other exchanges — take place voluntarily. Bioethicist Sigrid Fry-Revere, founder of the Center for Ethical Solutions, went to Iran to meet organ sellers and buyers. Later, she told of people like “an apprentice who needed the money to start his own shop … He had his own shop now. He gave his kidney to a 15 year-old girl, who is going to school and doing well. He checks in regularly with her mother because it gives him such a lift to hear that the girl is doing fine.” Fry-Revere says organ trading in Iran is much like open adoption in the U.S.: The two parties can decide whether to visit and get to know each other. Other times, the donation is anonymous. Both are much better than kidnapping and eye-gouging. In America, we let people sell blood. And sperm. And eggs. Why not kidneys? Why do politicians recoil at the idea of a legal market? Fry-Revere says, “I think it’s just, old habits die hard.” There are all sorts of services that people think the market can’t handle. It’s like they have some sort of mental block. President Obama says that without government, we can’t put out fires. But almost half the people government pays to fight wildfires work for private companies. In parts of America, private companies also put out house fires. They get to the fire sooner. The city of Sandy Springs, Ga., contracted out most of its services. Residents were surprised to notice that the streets got cleaned faster, and traffic lights were synchronized. It’s not that the old government workers were lazy — they just didn’t have the same incentive to find better ideas. They figured they’d never lose the job if they just did what they’d always done. Some things ought to be done by government: things like running courts, policing pollution and protecting the border. But most everything else should be left to private actors. Government offers guarantees on paper and promises in speeches. But government rarely delivers. Private companies did brilliant Internet work for President Obama’s election campaign. But when it came to his health insurance website, the president put government in charge. We saw the result. Markets aren’t perfect, but they allow for a world where prudence is rewarded and sloth punished, a world in which more people take risks and innovate. That’s a world where people prosper. Some prosper instead of waiting — and sometimes dying — while hoping government will eventually get things right.

Voice Of The People • Fee for yard sale is crossing a line To the editor: Kendallville’s history of budget woes for the last 10 years is a familiar story. Unlike the working class, who know how to tighten their belts in lean times, governing bodies never seem to figure it out. Instead of long-term solutions, they keep trying to fix compound fractures with Band-Aids. Kendallville has a unique way to make up for shortfalls. Just pass an ordinance

involving a tax, a fee or surcharge, call it what you will. It’s money coming out of taxpayer pockets. We’ve had a raise in transfer site tickets, sewage rates raised, drain line insurance, which is useless, multiple housing fees. The car show on Main Street used to be free; entries now pay $12. Farmers Market used to be free for vendors. Now they pay a fee. The Amish have not come back. Their latest brainstorm, pass an ordinance requiring a $5 fee to have a yard sale. That is crossing the line. I don’t know of any county law, state law or federal law

that prohibits a person from selling personal possessions on their own property, unless it’s contraband. Maybe they should have thought twice about all those hefty pay raises they gave city employees. My SSI will be a hefty $204 for the year. My one hope before I die is they will pass some ordinance taking my whole check, instead of sucking it out a piece at a time, like a leech. The community has a voice. Use it to stop garbage ordinances like this. Douglas Terry Kendallville

‘Hunting with Dad’ is a continuing tradition Another paper slips out of my dad’s collection of poems, notes and books that he left me. It is a yellowed piece of paper with a typewritten poem. My dad signed the poem Jan. 30, 1982. The poem, “Hunting with my Dad,” fell out at the right time as we now live in the middle of deer hunting season. “At the top of the pines, the wind would moan I love you here, in this my home, Don’t go away, stay with me lad When I went hunting with my Dad.” I get the call to go over to Aaron’s garage. Jonah just got his first deer with his cross-bow. My immediate reaction is a cold feeling in my gut; one of fear or pride, I am not sure. I hop on my bike and head over to their garage. Jonah is waiting for me. The cold feeling goes away as I see his face. It isn’t so much that he is thrilled or happy. He is proud as he says, “Nannie, now I am a provider for my family.” Jonah is 9. His dad and his Uncle Adam are in the garage working on the deer. Sorry if this is a bit too much for your breakfast table, but this is the way it is done. First they bleed the deer and then they skin the deer. They teach Jonah the ways of preparing the deer. They teach him the ways of the land. “Sometimes the leaves were dry and crispy And the haze would lay so low and wispy I remember as a little lad When I went hunting with my Dad.” My dad and his three brothers hunted with their dad from the time they could

hold a shotgun. It was there they learned respect for life, for the beauty of the land, and for the bond between father and son. When I lived on the farm my three boys hunted with their dad. Opening day was such an event at our house. No one could sleep the night before because of the excitement. I got up early to deep fry homemade doughnuts. I made dozens LOU ANN of these doughnuts for all the guys that showed up HOMAN- at the farmhouse. I dipped in sugar and placed SAYLOR them them on the table, and they disappeared as quickly as I made them. The boys actually made maps showing where each would be hunting. There was “Doc’s Woods” and “Squirrel Woods.” With mounds of hunting gear gone from the house I would sweep up the kitchen floor and put a giant pot of chili on the wood stove, waiting for the reports. One by one each would show up with stories of the buck that got away, or they would come for help to drag the deer out of the woods. Luckily I never had to do that! “On my right there’d go Brother Jim To my left, Jerry, Keith and him Always walking where the marsh was bad When we were hunting with my Dad.” I watch my sons pass this tradition on to Jonah. Matthew already shot his

first turkey. Someday he will bring home the deer meat as well. These children are taught to use all parts of the animal. Maybe they will tan the hide or use the antlers for door knobs or chandeliers. I also know that in a few days after the carcass hangs, Karen’s kitchen will become the processing center where each boy will help grind and place the meat in bags for winter. Nothing will be left except a few bones which will be taken out to the farm for the coyotes. I do not hunt, but I understand their passion. I know there is something wonderful in passing this on down to son or daughter. From the outside I have watched these traditions pass down from father to son. The remnants of the bonding remain. Even with the farm gone from my own life, I am still part of this hunting tradition. I keep the coffee going and provide a place for stories at my kitchen table. What is better on cold autumn nights than telling these stories? Hopefully Matthew and Jonah will grasp these traditions and pass them on to different children where the land is still strong and they become the teachers. “Now my sigh is dim and blurry But I still see the wood fire, cheer For I remember and feel glad For going hunting with my Dad.” LOU ANN HOMAN-SAYLOR lives in Angola at the White Picket Gardens where you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp.

What Others Say • Major advance against AIDS Scientists from Cornell and Scripps Research Institute have announced a breakthrough in understanding the mechanism HIV uses to infect humans, opening the door to creating an effective AIDS vaccine. It is hard to underestimate the significance of their feat. AIDS is the most deadly global disease of our time, having killed well over 30 million people around the world since it was first identified in 1981. Another 35 million carry the disease, which also has inflicted an immense economic toll.

AIDS is spread through mother’s breast milk, sexual intercourse, contaminated needles and other ways. Although the death count from AIDS and the new infection rate have declined dramatically in the past eight years, thanks to the widespread availability of anti-AIDS drugs and public health education, there is no way to prevent its spread through human contact. Roughly 2.5 million new cases are reported each year. More than 20 years of intense research into a vaccine that could inoculate humans against HIV and so prevent AIDS have failed to come up with an answer. This failure

has happened in large part because the virus has evolved a complex and elusive protein envelope that allows it to enter cells. Once the HIV virus gets past the cell’s immune system, its outer envelope, in effect, falls apart, frustrating laboratory efforts to study its structure. Two papers in the Nov. 1 issue of Science magazine, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, explain how researchers from Scripps in La Jolla, Calif., and Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, were able to stabilize the HIV envelope protein and subject it to study by different

methods that have produced strikingly similar results. Two studies using cryo-electron microscopy and one using X-ray crystallography produced high-resolution pictures of the molecular structure of the virus’s outer envelope. These studies have allowed researchers at Scripps and Weill Corner to begin identifying sites that could be attacked by a vaccine that would prevent the HIV entry mechanism from functioning. … The prospects for success against AIDS have never looked better.

Report stirs new confusion in Arafat death RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — Four investigations, hundreds of testimonies and stacks of medical reports on Yasser Arafat’s unexplained death in 2004 have failed to produce hard evidence of what killed him — and findings presented Friday only created more confusion. Palestinian officials said a report they received from Russia on the role of radioactive polonium in Arafat’s death was inconclusive. They spoke just a day after Swiss scientists said the Palestinian leader was probably poisoned by the rare and extremely lethal substance. Despite those discrepancies, the Swiss and Russian reports agreed that Arafat’s death “was not caused by old age or disease, but as a result of a toxic substance,” said Dr. Abdullah Bashir, a medical expert in the three-member Palestinian team that has been investigating Arafat’s death. This, he told a news conference, is in line with the long-standing Palestinian contention that Arafat was poisoned. The reports revived Palestinian allegations that Israel was behind the attack, despite its denial. The Palestinian team’s leader, Tawfik Tirawi, said Israel had the technical means and the motive. “I say, with all the details available about Yasser Arafat’s death, that he was killed, and that Israel killed him,” he said. The former Palestinian intelligence chief did not present evidence to back up the claims. In the four years leading up to his death, Arafat’s relationship with his longtime nemesis, Israel’s then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, had become increasingly hostile. Sharon, a hard-liner, blamed Arafat for encouraging anti-Israeli violence instead of working toward a peace deal and kept him isolated at his West Bank compound for extended periods. Former Sharon aide Raanan Gissin reiterated Friday that Israel had nothing to do with Arafat’s death. “The Palestinians are using Israel as a scapegoat,” he said. “If Arafat was murdered, then he (the killer) should be sought among the heads of the Palestinian Authority.”

Obama issues apology to those who’ve lost coverage WASHINGTON (AP) — Bowing to intense criticism, President Barack Obama apologized to Americans who are losing health insurance plans he had repeatedly said they could keep and pledged to find fixes that might allow people to keep their coverage. “I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he said in an

interview Thursday with NBC News. He added: “We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them, and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.” Officials said the president was referring to fixes his administration could make on its own, not legislative options proposed

by congressional lawmakers. The website that was supposed to be an easy portal for Americans to use to purchase insurance has been hobbled by technical issues. And with at least 3.5 million Americans receiving cancellation notices from their insurance companies, there’s new scrutiny aimed at the way the president tried to sell the law to the public in the first place.

TYPHOON: Storm causes landslides, destroys homes FROM PAGE A1

Category 4 hurricane in the U.S., knocking on the door of the top category, a 5. Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons are the same thing. They are just called different names in different parts of the world. Because of cut-off communications in the Philippines, it was impossible to know the full extent of casualties and damage. At least two people were electrocuted in storm-related accidents, one person was killed by a fallen tree and another was struck by lightning, official reports said. Southern Leyte Gov. Roger Mercado said the

typhoon triggered landslides that blocked roads, uprooted trees and ripped roofs off houses around his residence. The dense clouds and heavy rains made the day seem almost as dark as night, he said. “When you’re faced with such a scenario, you can only pray, and pray and pray,” Mercado told The Associated Press by telephone, adding that mayors in the province had not called in to report any major damage. “I hope that means they were spared and not the other way around,” he said. “My worst fear is there will be massive loss of lives and property.”

Eduardo del Rosario, head of the disaster response agency, said a powerful typhoon that also hit the central Philippines in 1990 killed 508 people and left 246 missing, but this time authorities had ordered pre-emptive evacuation and other measures to minimize casualties. He said the speed at which the typhoon sliced through the central islands — 40 kph (25 mph) — helped prevent its 600-kilometer (375-mile) band of rain clouds from dumping enough of their load to overflow waterways. Flooding from heavy rains is often the main cause of deaths from typhoons.

FORT WAYNE — East Noble’s football season concluded in an uncharacteristic fashion Friday against Bishop Dwenger. The Saints fired out of the gates and scored 10 points in the opening 3 1/2 minutes en route to a 33-13 victory over the Knights at the University of Saint Francis’ Bishop John D’Arcy Stadium. Following an East Noble three-and-out in the opening series, Dwenger (9-3) marched 63 yards in approximately 1:30 to set up Tyler Tippman’s 2-yard rushing score. Dwenger finished the game with 383 total yards, including 221 on the ground. The Saints (9-3) host New Haven (11-1) in regional action on Friday. “They hit a few big plays and ran the ball on us early. Everyone knows we are not the dynamic team that can come back from a big deficit,” East Noble coach Luke Amstutz said. “We needed (a big play) for us to win this game. With our style of offense and defense, we needed this to be a 21-14 game.” In order to keep it close, East Noble needed to run the ball with some success. Bishop Dwenger took notes from last week’s Leo-EN game. It stacked the box right away, taking away the Knights’ option attack with

With the box flooded with Saints, Wolfe went to the sky to find Nathan Ogle twice on an 11-play, 52-yard drive midway through the first quarter.

Boilermakers escape Northern Kentucky Hungry Hoosiers WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue coach Matt Painter believes the Northern Kentucky Norse deserved to win. And they almost did. But Purdue’s Ronnie Johnson made sure it didn’t happen. Johnson, who had 18 points and five assists, scored the go-ahead free throws with 13 seconds left and the Boilermakers beat Northern Kentucky 77-76 in the season opener for both teams on Friday night. “I felt they deserved to win just out of being quicker to the basketball and having a little bit more energy than us,” Painter said. “But also just the way they shot the basketball and the times they made 3’s. They answered every call. It’s unfortunate for them.” The Boilermakers (1-0) never found a way to lead the lead, let alone pull away from the Norse (0-1). Purdue scored five straight points to close out the game. “Just being poised at the end and taking good shots,” Johnson said. “Not forcing anything. Peck hit a nice shot to put us in a good spot.” After Northern Kentucky’s Tyler White hit a 3-pointer to put the Norse ahead 76-72 with 58 seconds remaining, Erick Peck — who finished with 11 points and nine rebounds — nailed a 3-pointer in front of the Purdue bench to put the Boilermakers back

within a point. Jordan Jackson, who led the Norse with 24 points and eight rebounds, went to the line with the chance to extend the lead again. But he missed Northern Kentucky’s only free throws of the night. Then Johnson went to the line on the other end of the court and hit two free throws to capture the win. “It was a tough thing for him to step up and miss those two at the end,” Norse coach Dave Bezold said. “But we’re not in that position without him, if he doesn’t get to the line and create what he did.” The Norse are in just their second season of being a NCAA Division I level program. Against Purdue, they played like a more experienced Division I team. Purdue is just the second Big Ten team the Norse has faced. They lost to Ohio State last season. “Just playing them doesn’t put you on the map, it just means you’re on their schedule,” Bezold said. “You’ve got to win some games. It’s something that we’ve got to do as a program.” When Purdue would take a lead, Jackson would drive to the basket for a lay-up. When the Boilermakers stepped in Jackson’s way, Jack Flournoy or Todd Johnson would hit a 3-pointer, keeping Purdue from gaining any momentum.

HOOSIERS: IU started two frosh, two sophomores against Cougars FROM PAGE B1

It was a solid start for a team that replaced four 1,000-point scorers with a starting lineup of two freshmen, two sophomores and senior Will Sheehey. “Our guys showed a lot of the upside that’s there, a lot of the athleticism,” Crean said. “With 13 blocks, it was phenomenal. The free throw record, that’s amazing when you really think about how long the Indiana basketball program has historically been known for not only the free throw shooting, but the free throw attempts and making more free throws than their opponent’s attempt . It’s a big deal for us to get to the line, but especially now with the rules the way they are.” This one will be hard to top. Though Clarke Rosenberg led the Cougars with 27 points, only one of his teammates reached double figures. Eddie Denard finished with 10 on a night Chicago State shot a dismal 25.9 percent from the field and was just 8 of 36 on 3-pointers. It was good enough to impress Chicago State coach Tracy Dildy. “That’s a really good, athletic team, which we knew coming in,” Dildy said. “They changed a lot of our guy’s shots just with their length, and I’ve been telling people this is going to be a team that’s going to be in that hunt for that Big Ten (title) because they’re not going to do anything but get better and get better and get better.” Crean certainly hopes so. The perfectionist challenged his players to MARTINS

be even more aggressive contesting shots, forcing turnovers and taking care of the ball — three areas the Hoosiers did not fare as well Friday. Indiana committed 19 turnovers and forced 10. But even he acknowledged it was a good start. Without Cody Zeller to patrol the middle, Indiana repeatedly attacked the basket with zeal, hoping to score points or draw fouls. They did both. The Hoosiers finally started to pull away midway through the first half with a 10-2 spurt and followed that with an 8-2 run that gave Indiana a 39-21 lead with 5:09 left in the first half. Chicago State answered with seven straight points, all from Rosenberg — one of its few good stretches of the night. “I wouldn’t change the experience (in Assembly Hall), but I would change the performance,” Dildy said. “We really just wanted to come and put on a good showing for the fans.” Instead, the Hoosiers turned it into a rout. Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell scored the final four points in an 8-0 run to close the first half, and Indiana started the second half on an 8-1 surge that made it 55-29 with 16:02 left in the game. Chicago State never got closer than 19 again and the only real question for the fans was whether they would hit 100 points. Ferrell scored 11 points, Sheehey and freshman Devin Davis each had 10 points and nine rebounds and freshman Troy Williams finished with 13 points.

Northern Kentucky’s Todd Johnson, left, goes around Purdue’s Terone Johnson during an NCAA college basketball game Friday in West Lafayette.

The Norse hit 13 shots from 3-point range. Todd Johnson, who scored all 12 of his points from behind the arc, hit a wide-open 3 with 12:59 left in the half to give the Norse a 16-13 lead, then hit another to make it 19-13. With 9:23 left in the half, Johnson scored a 3-pointer to give the Norse a 22-13 lead. Flournoy scored all 12 of his points from 3-point range, too, including a shot to give the Norse a 73-70 lead before Ronnie Johnson drove to the basket to put Purdue within a

point again, 73-72. “To come in to a Big Ten school and win you have to have some people who are special,” Painter said. “I thought Jordan Jackson was special. We simply couldn’t keep him in front of us. I thought Todd Johnson’s energy set the tone. He’s a kid that shot 20 percent from the three last year and he comes out and goes 3-for-3 right away. And then Flournoy goes 4-for-4, stretches the defense, is a big guy. I thought those three guys were special.”

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana is hungry. It’s been a month since the Hoosiers last won a game. It’s been six years since they last qualified for a bowl. And after last weekend’s bungled finish against Minnesota, players and coaches are eager to make amends. The next quest begins Saturday. “In our world, there is a lot of football to play, a lot of things we can accomplish,” Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson said. “Two weeks in a row we played a pretty good team, got them into the fourth quarter, haven’t been able to get over the hump. We’re getting close. We’re in those games and our deal is we’ve got to keep fighting and pushing to knock that thing down.” The Hoosiers’ next chance comes against Illinois (3-5, 0-4 Big Ten), which looks like it’s stolen Wilson’s playbook. Both teams throw first. Both offenses score points by the dozens. Both defenses give up more than 32 points per game and both coaches are trying to get their programs bowl-eligible. The winner on Saturday will end a losing streak — Indiana has lost three straight, Illinois has lost 18 consecutive conference

games — and move within two wins of that magical sixth win. The question, of course, is which team is better positioned: Indiana (3-5, 1-3), seeking a breakthrough November victory, or the Fighting Illini, who are trying to prove they can just win a Big Ten game. “When we get down there, we’ve got to all be able to step up and have each other’s back and make plays for each other,” Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase said, referring to the Illini’s red-zone proficiency. “It might not always be pretty down there, but one way or the other we’ve all got to be able to step up and make plays.” Meanwhile, Indiana is simply trying to recapture the excitement swirling around the program when the season started — just in time to prove the so-called experts wrong about their postseason hopes. “We’re at that part of the race where you can keep pushing or stop, and we’ve come too far to stop pushing,” Wilson said. “We’re down to two at home, and we need another good crowd to get some energy in the stands for the guys this week.”

Notre Dame faces another test at Pitt PITTSBURGH (AP) — The kick went up, and Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin couldn’t look. Instead, Martin just listened to the crowd to learn whether the 33-yard field goal attempt by Pittsburgh’s Kevin Harper in the second overtime last October would end the Fighting Irish’s chance at an undefeated season. When the stadium roared, Martin relaxed. So did his teammates. Notre Dame

recovered to win 29-26 in the third overtime, preserving its perfect record on its way to a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game. “We kind of stole one there,” Martin said. A year later, and things haven’t changed much. Though 24th-ranked Notre Dame (7-2) is out of the national title mix, if the Irish can win out, they’re in the hunt for a BCS bowl bid. The Panthers (4-4) meanwhile, continue to

search for an identity in coach Paul Chryst’s second season. Close games have been the norm over the last five meetings. All five have been decided by six points or less, including two in overtime. That would seem to favor the Irish, who have a way of finding a way under coach Brian Kelly. Notre Dame has won 10 straight games decided by a touchdown or less, including a 38-34 escape against Navy last week.

It wasn’t dominant, to be sure, but that hardly matters to Kelly. “There is a lot of pressure at Notre Dame, a lot of scrutiny,” Kelly said. “There were nine lead changes in that game against Navy. They were down in the fourth quarter. They had to come back in the fourth quarter and they had to hold the lead. Those kids can take that with them because that takes a lot to do those things.”

Iowa tries to end scoring funk against Purdue INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Purdue coach Darrell Hazell understands what Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz is going through. Both have dealt with struggling offenses, bogged down ground games and a paucity of points this season. In Hazell’s case, it’s been downright ugly. But Ferentz has more at stake this weekend against the reeling Boilermakers. Win and the Hawkeyes (5-4, 2-3 Big Ten) are bowl-eligible. Lose, and they’ll have to beat either Michigan at home or Nebraska on the road to get that critical sixth win. It’s not a predicament that concerns Ferentz or his team.

“All we’re worried about is winning this week, which would be six, and to become bowl eligible is certainly a plus compared to a year ago,” Ferentz said, a reference to missing out on the 2012 postseason for the first time in 12 years. “It certainly would be a great outcome for us if we can get that done.” Iowa hasn’t been itself lately, scoring just 19 points and one touchdown in their last eight quarters of regulation. Last week’s struggles were partially because starting quarterback Jake Rudock was knocked out of

the Wisconsin game with a sprained left knee. Rudock’s backup, C.J. Beathard, went 4 of 16 for 70 yards with one interception, resulting in a 28-9 loss to Wisconsin. The good news is that Iowa expects Rudock to start Saturday The Hawkeyes are hoping that Rudock, even at less than 100 percent, can get them out of this scoring funk in time to extend Purdue’s losing streak to seven for the first time since 1993. “I think he’ll be sore maybe,” Ferentz said. “But I think everybody is going to be good to go.” Iowa might not need much

more than nine points to win at Purdue (1-7, 0-3), which has continued to struggle even after changing quarterbacks in late September. The Boilermakers haven’t scored since Oct. 12, haven’t won since Sept. 7 and still haven’t beaten a Football Bowl Subdivision foe since last November. And with four games remaining, Hazell is running out of time and options. On Tuesday, Hazell said he doesn’t anticipate making many, if any, personnel moves the rest of this season. He’s just hoping that leads to improvement rather than more of the same.

KNIGHTS: East Noble ran for 167 yards, tallied 15 first downs FROM PAGE B1

sideline. The interception looked like the big play the Knights needed. However, they could not find a rhythm for the rest of the game. The Knights tallied 167 yards on the ground and 15 first downs, but punted six times. “We have lived by the way our defense has played all year. That was a huge play that kind of sparked some life in us, but it didn’t spark as much as we needed,” Amstutz said. “It gave us an opportunity, but we were short in manufacturing the big plays.” East Noble (9-3) loses a large group of seniors, which helped lead the team to the most victories since the 2004 season when the Knights went 10-1. “I want them to know that it doesn’t end here. You may have played your last football game, but what you have become and accomplished will lead to other great things in life,” Amstutz said.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Notre Dame’s Biedscheid to sit out 2013-14 season SOUTH BEND (AP) — Notre Dame sophomore Cam Biedschied plans to sit out the 2013-14 season to preserve a year of eligibility. Sports information director Bernie Cafarelli said Friday that coach Mike Brey and Biedscheid would talk about the decision after Friday night’s game between the 21st-ranked Irish and Miami of Ohio. Biedscheid had sat out Notre Dame’s two preseason games while considering the decision. The 6-7 Biedscheid is from St. Louis and played in all but one game last season, when he was suspended for a fight with St. John’s Sir’Dominic Pointer, and averaged 17 minutes and 6.2 points a game.

Notre Dame to honor Phelps 40 years after upset SOUTH BEND (AP) — Notre Dame will induct former coach Digger Phelps into its Ring of Honor on the 40th anniversary of his No. 2 Irish squad upsetting top-ranked UCLA to end the Bruins’ NCAA-record 88-game winning streak. The university announced Friday it will hold a ceremony at halftime of Notre Dame’s game against Virginia Tech on Jan. 19. On that date in 1974, Notre Dame used a 12-0 run in the final 3:32 to beat a UCLA team led by center Bill Walton and coached by John Wooden. Phelps coached the Irish for 20 years, posting a 393-197 record. Previous honorees include Austin Carr, Adrian Dantley, Luke Harangody and Ruth Riley. The university announced earlier this week Skylar Diggins will be inducted into the ring on Nov. 16.

Golden Gophers suspend Walker for six games MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota center Maurice Walker has been suspended for six games for a violation of university policy. The Golden Gophers made the announcement on Friday, a few hours before they opened the season against Lehigh. The Gophers did not specify which policies were broken. It’s a big setback for Walker, who worked hard in the summer to drop weight and get into new coach Richard Pitino’s good graces. When Pitino was hired to bring his up-tempo style to Minnesota, the 310-pound Walker figured to have a hard time fitting in. But Walker changed his diet and threw himself into grueling workouts to drop more than 60 pounds. Walker won’t be eligible to rejoin the team until the second game of the Maui Invitational on Nov. 26.

Heat’s Chalmers fined $15,000 NEW YORK (AP) — Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers was fined $15,000 by the NBA on Friday for hitting Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin in the throat with a forearm Thursday night. The foul also was upgraded to a Flagrant Foul 2 from a common infraction. The incident occurred with 8:05 remaining in the third quarter of the Heat’s 102-97 home victory.

Buccaneers place RB Martin on injured reserve TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin will miss the remainder of the season with a left shoulder injury that’s sidelined him the past two games. The second-year pro was placed on injured reserve Friday. Linebacker Ka’lial Glaud was promoted from the active roster to fill the opening. Martin was a Pro Bowl selection as a rookie, rushing for 1,454 yards and finishing third in the NFL behind Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson with 1,926 total yards from scrimmage in 2012. He started the first six games this season, rushing for 456 yards and one touchdown before being injured against Atlanta on Oct. 20. He also had 12 pass receptions for 66 yards.

Central Michigan routs Division III Manchester MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — John Simons scored 27 points and Central Michigan overwhelmed Manchester 101-49 on Friday in the Chippewas’ season opener. Braylon Rayson scored 12 points and Austin Keel 11 as the Chippewas emptied the bench with twelve players scoring and eleven snaring rebounds. The Spartans committed 22 turnovers, 17 on steals. Central Michigan outrebounded Manchester 52-28. Manchester took the early lead and held it until 15:32 left in first half. That is when Rayshawn Simmons made two free throws for a 10-9 CMU lead, and the Chippewas pulled away from there. The Spartans were led by Brady Dolezal with 18 points. He made 7 of 12 shots but his team only shot 33.9 percent to CMU’s 48.6, led by Simons’ 10-of-13 effort. The Chippewas shot 20 more free throws than Manchester, making 22 of 28. The game was an exhibition for Manchester, a Division III school from Indiana.




Fall fruit care: Mulching strawberries, storing apples Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. You get to enjoy the coolness of the weather after withering all summer, crops, vegetables and fruits are being ELYSIA harvested and enjoyed, RODGERS and it is a last-minute rush to get all of those outdoor projects done before the cold of winter. Rosie Lerner, Purdue Horticulture Specialist, offers this advice on putting your strawberries to bed and storing apples for winter.

Strawberries Perhaps the last garden chore of the season is tucking in the strawberry planting for winter. Strawberry plants have already set their buds for next spring’s flowers, and the crop can be lost unless you protect them from harsh winter conditions. In addition to flower bud damage, the alternate freezing and thawing of the soil that commonly occurs in winter and early spring can cause plant roots to break and the plants to be heaved right out of the ground. Mulching strawberry plants will insulate them from extreme low temperatures, minimize soil heaving and decrease excessive drying (desiccation) of the plant crowns. But be sure to wait until plants are dormant before you pile on the mulch. Applying mulch too early can cause the crown of the plant to rot. Plants should be mulched

before the temperature drops below 20 degrees F, usually by late November or early December in most parts of Indiana. Several materials can be used for winter mulch, including clean (weed-free) straw, chopped cornstalks, hay, corncobs or bark chips. Tree leaves and grass clippings are not recommended, since they tend to mat down and smother the plants. About 2-3 inches of mulch, after settling, should provide adequate protection. Put a note on your garden calendar to uncover the plants in spring as new growth begins. Rake off most of the mulch as soon as the first new leaves develop. The new growth will probably look a little yellow at first, but will green up with exposure to light. Rake the mulch between the rows to provide weed control and a source of emergency cover in case frost threatens.

Storing apples Most apple trees are bearing above-average loads this year, and many home-growers will be searching for new recipe ideas to use up the heavy yields. Why not store some of your crop for fresh eating throughout the winter? As a general rule, the later-maturing cultivars, such as Red Delicious, Northern Spy, Stayman, Winesap, Rome Beauty, Turley and Idared, are better keepers than earlier cultivars — up to five months under ideal conditions. Only good-quality fruit that is free of bruises, cuts or other damage should be selected for storage. One bad apple can spoil the whole lot by introducing rot organisms

and releasing increased levels of ethylene gas, which hastens the ripening and aging process. Store apples that have reached maturity but have not fully ripened. The fruit’s skin should have a greenish-yellow undercolor, and the flesh should be sweet, hard and crisp. Apples are best stored at 30-32 F with 90 percent relative humidity and some air circulation. Warmer temperatures will cause the apples to age faster, and low humidity can cause excessive shriveling. Ideal conditions may be difficult to find in modern housing, but can be achieved if a little creativity is applied. The most practical solution for home storage is the refrigerator. However, the air inside refrigerators is very dry, particularly in frost-free types. Pack the apples in perforated plastic bags to keep the humidity high yet still allow some air circulation through the holes in the bag. A cool cellar or an unheated room or outbuilding can be used as long as temperature can be kept below 40 F but above 30 F with reasonable humidity. Apples will freeze at a temperatures between 27.8 and 29.4 F, depending on the cultivar, and frozen fruit will deteriorate rapidly. Straw-lined pits, buried tiles and other storage methods are at the mercy of the weather and may give satisfactory results some years, but may be a loss during others. ELYSIA RODGERS is the agriculture and natural resources director for the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service in DeKalb County.


Soybean virus spotted Soybean vein necrosis virus, shown above, has been confirmed in Indiana for the second consecutive year as plant pathologists continue to study the relatively new disease to determine how it might affect the plants and their yields. The viral disease is a Tospovirus and was first discovered in Tennessee soybean fields in 2008.

Soybean vein necrosis virus, or SVNV, has now been detected in 16 states across the southern and north-central regions of the United States. Common diseases such as brown spot, downy mildew and sudden death syndrome can all be mistaken for SVNV, so it’s important for growers to know the difference.

Farmers in many parts of the country found that adequate rain and cooler

temperatures at pollination time produced exceptional results for corn.

Record corn crop predicted But prices expected to be lowest since 2010 DES MOINES, Iowa — (AP) This year’s corn crop is the largest the nation has ever seen, and exceeds earlier government projections. In its first report since the government shutdown, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Friday it expects 13.99 billion bushels of corn. It had forecast 13.8

billion bushels. The previous record was 13.1 billion in 2009. Heavy rains delayed spring planting and drought conditions returned to parts of the Midwest. Some analysts thought there would be a subpar harvest. But adequate rain and cooler temperatures at pollination time produced exceptional results,

Family works to save old Indiana grain elevator GASTON (AP) — Decades after it was a bustling business near downtown Gaston, an old grain elevator still stands at one end of Main Street, a crumbling landmark from the rural town’s agricultural past. Now Joe Clock is “a farmer on a mission,” hoping to see the empty wood-and-aluminum structure revived rather than torn down. Clock, his wife, Linda and daughter, Candy Clock, have been cutting back trees that had grown up around the buildings, and are trying to track down grant funds that might help to pay for renovation, The Star Press reported. The Clocks don’t own the property, which was purchased in a tax sale several years ago; they’re just helping clean it up. As someone who used to haul grain to the elevator back when it was in business, however, Joe Clock believes strongly that it should be preserved as a piece of local history, and said he has urged the current owner not to tear it down. Noting that another grain elevator closer to the Cardinal Greenway in Gaston was torn down years ago, Joe Clock suggests that this one could be preserved — and possibly even returned to some use — in part to give trail users something they could stop by when they arrive at the Gaston trailhead. The Main Street elevator and adjoining structures —


The Clock family hopes to save this grain elevator. They want to restore the buildings which were built in the 1950s.

including a rusting metal Quonset hut — were built in 1953 and 1957, according to records in the Delaware County assessor’s office. It was still a working elevator when former owner Charles Kirtley owned it, from 1972 until 1983; Kirtley told The Star Press in 2005 that he closed the business when too many farmers weren’t able to pay their feed bills anymore. Now the interior of the elevator is littered with graffiti and trash, and lower portions of the wavy aluminum siding on the exterior are missing where people have stolen it to sell, Clock said. He can still identify where various chutes and levers once were — or where remains still hang from the wooden beams overhead — and he notes the top of the elevator would

be a great vantage point for people to visit for the view if the building could be fixed up. J.P. Hall, Eastern Regional Office director for Indiana Landmarks, agreed that grain elevators and related structured are “absolutely important” elements of local agricultural history, and can be saved if there is enough local buy-in and support — as well as a clear plan for what function the restored structure would serve. Hall cited the repurposed grain elevator in historic downtown Farmland, now housing Old Mill Shoppes, as an example of successful rehab and reuse of an old grain elevator. The Gaston elevator’s location within blocks of the Greenway has some value, Hall said.

Storage centers are filling up fast LAFAYETTE (AP) — Indiana’s grain storage centers are filling up with freshly harvested corn and soybeans one year after a drought left the state’s cropland parched and plagued by low yields. Purdue University estimates that about a third of Indiana’s nearly 1.3 billion bushels of grain storage capacity sat empty last year after the worst drought in decades hurt crop yields. But Purdue agricultural economist Chris Hurt says that’s not the case this year. He says the state’s grain storage centers are filling up thanks to this year’s favorable weather. Hurt said Indiana’s corn crop is expected to be near a record-high 1 billion bushels this year. Soybean production is projected to be nearly normal at about 250 million bushels.



Briefs • Park officials try to track landslide ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Denali National Park officials in Alaska want to hear from people who may have traveled in the area of a huge landslide that fell on a section of a road frequented by summer tourists. The slide was discovered Oct. 23. Park spokeswoman Kris Fister said Friday the last known day anyone was in that area was Oct. 12. Hearing from people who were in the area during that gap could help better pinpoint when the landslide occurred. The Alaska Earthquake Information Center tried to determine the timing, park geologist Denny Capps said in an update posted online Thursday. But it’s possible the slide could not create a distinctive seismic signal because of its apparent slow motion and relatively small size, wrote Capps, who could not be reached for details Friday. The landslide covered a 110-foot stretch of the popular Denali Park Road at the 38-mile point, which was closed at the time of the discovery. An estimated 30,000 yards of debris fell from 600 feet above the road. Some debris was as thick as 15 feet and the size of a small cabin, according to Capps. There were no reported casualties.

Protesters want justice for woman shot on front porch DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) — Protesters and civil rights groups are calling for justice after a suburban Detroit homeowner fatally shot a 19-year-old woman on the porch of his home. No charges have been filed after authorities said Renisha McBride, of Detroit, was killed by a shotgun blast to the face early Saturday in Dearborn Heights. According to police, man told investigators that he thought someone was trying to break into his home and accidentally discharged the gun. “She was shot in the front of the face, near the mouth.” police Lt. James Serwatowski said. McBride’s family this week said she likely approached the home to seek help after getting into a car accident nearby. “He shot her in the head … for what? For knocking on his door,” her aunt, Bernita Spinks, said. Earlier this week, police said they requested a warrant authorizing in the case. The Wayne County prosecutor’s office sent the request back to police Wednesday for additional investigation before making a charging decision. A vigil was held Wednesday at the home. About 50 people rallied Thursday outside the police department. The homeowner hasn’t been arrested or named by police.

Rickets making comeback in UK LONDON (AP) — Rickets, the childhood disease that once caused an epidemic of bowed legs and curved spines during the Victorian era, is making a shocking comeback in 21st-century Britain. Rickets results from a severe deficiency of vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium. Rickets was historically considered to be a disease of poverty among children who toiled in factories during the Industrial Revolution. Last month, Britain’s chief medical officer, Dr. Sally Davies, described the return of rickets as “appalling.” She proposed the country give free vitamins to all children under 5 and asked the country’s independent health watchdog to study if that would be worthwhile.



Does Chicago still have tallest tower? CHICAGO (AP) — Rising from the ashes of 9/11, the new World Trade Center tower has punched above the New York skyline to reach its powerfully symbolic height of 1,776 feet and become the tallest building in the country. Or has it? A committee of architects recognized as the arbiters on world building heights was meeting Friday to decide whether a design change affecting the skyscraper’s 408-foot needle disqualifies it from being counted. Disqualification would deny the tower the title as the nation’s tallest. But there’s more than bragging rights at stake; 1 World Trade Center stands as a monument to those killed in the terrorist attacks, and the ruling could dim the echo of America’s founding year in the structure’s height. Without the needle, the building measures 1,368 feet, a number that also holds symbolic weight as the height of the original World Trade Center. What’s more, the decision is being made by an organization based in Chicago, whose cultural and architectural history is embodied by the Willis — formerly Sears — Tower that would be knocked into second place by a vote in favor of the New York structure. “Most of the time these decisions are not so controversial,” said Daniel Safarik, an architect and spokesman for the nonprofit Council on

Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. The 30 members of its Height Committee are meeting to render a judgment behind closed doors in Chicago, where the world’s first skyscraper appeared in 1884. The committee, comprising industry professionals from all over the world, will announce its decision next week. The question over 1 World Trade Center, which remains under construction and is expected to open next year, arose because of a change to the design of its tower-topping needle. Under the council’s current criteria, spires that are an integral part of a building’s aesthetic design count; broadcast antennas that can be added and removed do not. The designers of 1 World Trade Center had intended to enclose the mast’s communications gear in decorative cladding made of fiberglass and steel. But the developer removed that exterior shell from the design, saying it would be impossible to properly maintain or repair. Without it, the question is whether the mast is now primarily just a broadcast antenna. According to the architecture firm behind the building, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, the needle will have a communications platform for radio and television equipment, but it will also be topped with an LED beacon that will fire out a horizontal blaze of


A girl looks down from “The Ledge,” at Chicago’s 110-story, 1,450-foot Willis Tower. The Tower is in contention with the 104-story, 1,776-foot One World Trade Center, a skyscraper built at the site of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York as the tallest building in America. A committee of

architects recognized as the arbiters on world building heights will decide whether a design change affecting One World Trade Center’s needle disqualifies its hundreds of feet from being counted, which would deny the building the title of nation’s tallest.

broader implications that could force a reshuffle in the rankings of the tallest buildings in the world. If the matter weren’t so steeped in emotion it might have set off some of the good natured ribbing emblematic of the history of one-upmanship between New York and Chicago. But 1 World Trade Center is a monument to American resilience admired well

light visible from up to 50 miles away on a clear night — a feature that has been described as a crowning beacon of hope. The developers tested the lights Friday night, and hundreds of red, white and blue LED modules illuminated lower Manhattan. Safarik said the committee could consider amending its height criteria — a move with much

beyond Manhattan. “I don’t think anybody’s going to argue with the pride in building that new tower,” said 31-year-old software developer Brett Tooley, who works across the street from the Willis Tower. “Not only is it going to be the tallest building; it’s going to be one of the strongest buildings in the history of America. It’s a marvel of engineering.”

CBS admits being fooled by source for Benghazi story


Lonna McKinley, of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, looks through the log for President John F. Kennedy’s Air Force One, rear, Friday, at the museum in Dayton, Ohio. The

blanket at center was used by President Kennedy on the plane, and the blanket at left was used by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy on the plane.

JFK artifacts on display DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Many items that make up the searing images from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — from the ill-fated presidential limousine, to the gravesite eternal flame, to the historic Air Force One plane where Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office — are available for public viewing 50 years later. In some cases, officials had to scramble to make that happen. Aboard the plane, now in a hangar at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, visitors squeeze down a narrow walkway to stand where people packed into its sweltering state room to watch Johnson, Kennedy’s vice president, sworn in, with Jacqueline Kennedy alongside in the suit stained by her husband’s blood. “It’s getting hotter

and hotter, people are crammed in, emotions are getting higher and higher,” explained Jeff Underwood, historian of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, reflecting the famous images from the plane. As on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, it wasn’t clear in the first hours after the shooting what was unfolding, he said. Johnson wanted to show the nation that a constitutional transfer of power had been made, and Mrs. Kennedy insisted upon being there, Underwood said. Visitors can also see the saw cuts in a rear wall hastily made by Air Force crew members who didn’t want the late president’s coffin carried in the cargo hold. They removed two rows of seats for the coffin, which Mrs. Kennedy sat across from on the flight

back to Washington. Experiencing history in a personal way by being where it happened goes beyond reading it, Underwood said Friday during a news media tour. “Sometimes I see the looks on the faces (of visitors), and it all comes back to me,” said Underwood, a fourth-grader in 1963. “The story is so visceral.” The federal spending reductions of the sequester had in May halted shuttle bus trips from the museum to the hangar, but museum officials decided to resume the tours on a trimmed schedule with the anniversary approaching. The Boeing jet — built specially in 1962 for presidential use — was retired by the Air Force in 1998, having flown eight presidents starting with Kennedy.

NEW YORK (AP) — CBS News admitted Friday it was wrong to trust a “60 Minutes” source who claimed to be at the scene of a 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, and the publisher of the source’s book on the incident has halted its publication. “There are so many people out there who have the potential to deceive a news organization,” said Jeffrey Fager, CBS News chairman and “60 Minutes” executive producer, in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday. “We do our best and I think we do very well at spotting them. This time, I really feel like one got through and it’s extremely disappointing.” The correspondent responsible for the Oct. 27 story, Lara Logan, said the newsmagazine would correct its story on Sunday. She had interviewed former security contractor Dylan Davies, who claimed he took part in fighting at the mission. His story had been quickly doubted, and his credibility crumbled with a New York Times report late Thursday that revealed the FBI said the story Davies told them didn’t match what he told CBS. “That’s when we realized that we no longer had confidence in our source, and that we were wrong to put him on the air, and we apologize to our viewers,” Logan said on “CBS: This Morning” on Friday.

With it now unclear where Davies had been, publisher Simon & Schuster said Friday it was withdrawing his book, “The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Account of the Libyan Embassy Siege by the Soldier Who Was There.” It was published on the conservative Threshold Editions imprint two days after the “60 Minutes” story. Davies had written the book under the pseudonym Morgan Jones, which is how “60 Minutes” identified him in Logan’s story about Benghazi. In that story, which was stripped from the “60 Minutes” website late Thursday, Davies talked about rushing to the scene of the attack where U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed, and striking one attacker in the head with a rifle butt. But the Washington Post last week uncovered the identity of “Morgan Jones” and wrote that Davies had provided a written report to the British security firm for whom he worked that he had spent most of the night at the Benghazi home where he was staying and his attempts to get to the mission were blocked. CBS said it had known all along that Davies had told his bosses at the Blue Mountain security firm a different story, and that Davies had claimed the contradictory report had not been written by him.

Mexican citizens take lives back from cartel TEPALCATEPEC, Mexico (AP) — For lime grower Hipolito Mora, it was time to organize and pick up arms when a packing company controlled by a brutal drug cartel refused to buy his fruit. For Bishop Miguel Patino Velazquez, it was seeing civilians forced to fight back with their own guns that made him speak out. For Leticia, a lime picker too afraid of retribution to give her last name, it was the day she saw a taxi driver kidnapped in front of his two young children that convinced her to join those taking the law into their own hands. In Mexico they call it “the drop

that makes the glass overflow,” and it came at different points for the people living for years in fear of the brutal Knights Templar in the western Valley of Apatzingan, an emerald green tapestry of orchards bordered by blue-gray peaks. “We lived in bondage, threatened by organized crime,” said Leticia, 40, who ekes out a living picking fruit and selling chicken on the side. “They wanted to treat people like animals.” Eight months after locals formed self-defense groups, they say they are free of the cartel in six municipalities of the Tierra Caliente,

or “Hot Land,” which earned its moniker for the scorching weather but whose name has also come to signify criminal activity. What’s more, the self-defense group leaders, who are clearly breaking Mexican law by picking up military-style arms to fight criminals, say the federal government is no longer arresting them, but recruiting them to help federal forces identify cartel members. The Mexican government, which over seven years has repeatedly sent troops and federal police into the area without success, has reached its own limit: an Oct. 27 attack

by alleged cartel agents on power distribution plants and electrical sub-stations in 14 towns and cities that were intended to terrorize the public. At least 400,000 people were left in the dark. Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam arrived by helicopter to the ranch town of Tepalcatepec two days later to meet with self-defense group leaders. “The attorney general came with two army generals to speak to me and said ‘We’ve come to help. What do you want us to do?’” said Dr. Jose Manuel Mireles, self-defense group leader in Tepacaltepec.





Woman has bar set high in search for man DEAR ABBY: I’m a single woman who has had a string of unsuccessful relationships. When a man is into me, I’m not into him and vice versa. I know the problem is mostly mine. I’m very independent. I don’t want a man to consume my life — just be a part of it. It seems like the men I date want to smother me. My friends tell me that most women enjoy this. I hate it. I need a certain amount of time alone. I am attracted to manly men, but the ones who are attracted to me are either emotionally needy or they take longer to get ready to go anywhere than I do. It’s frustrating. I have met some men who would have been wonderful catches, but I felt nothing. I know friendship is the basis of all relationships, but physical attraction is important to me. A




process of dating a smooth and easy one. For others it’s complicated, but not impossible. I agree that the basis of strong relationships is friendship and compatibility.

Flat spots don’t cause brain damage or affect brain function. They can, however, lead to if the ASK teasing shape is very DOCTOR K. abnormal. To prevent Dr. Anthony flat spots, change the Komaroff position of your baby’s head throughout the day: • Give your baby “tummy time” when he is awake and being watched. Do this for at least a few

minutes a few times a day. • Carry your baby in a sling or other baby carrier to take pressure off his head. • Vary the position of your baby’s head when he is lying down. You may have to literally turn his head so he is facing the other way. If your baby prefers one side to another, position his seat or bassinet during the day so that the more interesting things to look at are on the less-preferred side. Most flat spots are mild and go away once babies are a little older and spend less time lying down. In severe cases, your pediatrician can prescribe a soft helmet that shields the skull from pressure, allowing the head to grow naturally into a rounder shape.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I know it’s safer for my baby to sleep on his back, but I’m worried he’ll develop flat spots on the back of his head. What can I do to prevent this? DEAR READER: Flat spots on the head are becoming more common in babies. As you suspect, that’s likely because more babies are sleeping on their backs than on their bellies. We want babies to sleep on their backs to decrease the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Since the “Back to Sleep” recommendation went into effect in 1994, the rate of SIDS has dropped by half. But sleeping on the back does put pressure on the back of a baby’s head. Babies have soft, malleable skulls. This helps them get through the birth canal and allows for the rapid brain growth that happens

What I can offer is that you need to continue looking for someone who is as independent as you are, so you can find an attractive man whose needs are similar to yours. Some couples find the

challenge and pressure. Many parts are always working — like the heart and lungs. However, even they get a bit of a rest at night. And our bones, muscles and joints regularly get a break during the day and when we sleep.

So there are ways to protect the shape of your baby’s head and to prevent flat spots from forming on his soft skull. But whatever you do, keep putting your baby on his back to sleep! It greatly reduces the risk of SIDS. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Kerry warns gaps remain in nuclear talks with Iran GENEVA (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned Friday of significant differences between Iran and six world powers trying to fashion a nuclear agreement, as he and three European foreign ministers tried to narrow the gap. But Russia expressed optimism about a deal. Officials had reported progress in Thursday’s talks. But comments from Kerry and his counterparts from Britain, France and Germany after they arrived in Geneva clearly indicated that obstacles remain for any agreement offering sanctions reductions for nuclear concessions. Russian news agencies reported late Friday that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov would join Kerry and the European ministers in Geneva on Saturday. A Western diplomat in Geneva told The Associated Press that China is sending a deputy foreign minister to the talks. The diplomat spoke on condition of

anonymity because he was not authorized to provide such information. Earlier Friday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich had said Lavrov would not attend the talks, so the quick change of plans appeared significant. Iran considers Russia most receptive to its arguments among the six world powers: the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. For that reason, Lavrov’s presence would add additional muscle to efforts to seal a preliminary deal that the West hopes will culminate with serious constraints on Iran’s ability to turn a peaceful nuclear program into making weapons. China also is more supportive of Iran than the United States and its allies are. Reporting Lavrov’s pending arrival, Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as

saying Russia expects the talks will produce a “lasting result expected by the international community.” The Russian statement suggested a possible narrowing of differences, hours after Kerry met first with his European counterparts, then with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Catherline Ashton, the EU’s top diplomat who convened the talks. Kerry arrived from Tel Aviv after meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during which Kerry tried to defuse Israeli concerns about the Geneva talks. Israel strongly opposes any deal that even slightly lifts sanctions unless Iran is totally stripped of technology that can make nuclear arms. The talks primarily focus on the size and output of Iran’s enrichment program, which can create both reactor fuel and weaponsgrade material suitable for a nuclear bomb. Iran insists it is pursuing only nuclear

energy, medical treatments and research, but the United States and its allies fear that Iran could turn this material into the fissile core of nuclear warheads. Kerry said there were “some very important issues on the table that are unresolved.” He told reporters, “There is not an agreement at this point in time.” In earlier comments to Israeli television, Kerry suggested Washington was looking for an Iranian commitment to stop any expansion of nuclear activities that could be used to make weapons, as a first step. “We are asking them to step up and provide a complete freeze over where they are today,” Kerry said Thursday. The six powers negotiating with Tehran are considering a gradual rollback of sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy. In exchange they demand initial curbs on Iran’s nuclear program, including a cap on enrich-
