HOWE — Back in Indiana Thursday, U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, said he does not regret the bitter budget battle that ended Wednesday night in Washington. “Any time we’re fighting for the American people, it’s worth it,” Stutzman said about the divisive episode that caused a 16-day shutdown of the federal government On the brink of a government default Wednesday, Congress passed a bill that funded the government temporarily without meeting some Republicans’ goal

of defunding the national health care law known as Obamacare. “It’s very disappointing that the president did not want to make any changes to Obamacare,” Stutzman said. “We’re going to have to live with Obamacare until he changes his mind.” Stutzman said he could not bring Stutzman himself to vote for the bill that ended the showdown, because it raised the federal debt ceiling and lacked tax reforms. “It’s going to treat members

of Congress differently under Obamacare,” giving them a 75 percent subsidy, he complained about the bill. “I do not believe the Republicans shut the government down,” Stutzman said. “It is unfortunate that the president chose to not negotiate and shut the government down.” He pointed to House-approved budgets that Obama rejected because they defunded Obamacare. Stutzman said national news media organizations are trying to blame the crisis on Republicans and portray the Republican Party as damaged by the episode. “I don’t believe Republicans

should apologize at all for fighting for Americans in the circumstances we’re in,” he said. As for any split in his party, he said, “There was a difference in tactics and strategy. At the end of the day, Republicans are unified in that we want health care that works for Americans and that doesn’t drive us into debt and cause more disruptions to the economy.” Moving forward with Obamacare intact, “I think it’s just going to have to play out,” he said. “As more Americans are affected by the health care law and share with the White House the negative SEE STUTZMAN, PAGE A9

Parks, offices reopen Workers return as shutdown ends BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


The car in the foreground hit an East Noble school bus, in the background, head-on Thursday afternoon, sending the bus into a sign and utility pole. Only the car’s driver was injured. He complained of hip injuries and was airlifted

by Samaritan helicopter to Parkview Regional Medical Center, Fort Wayne. Police said the car was southbound on Angling Road, northeast of Rome City, shortly before 4 p.m. when it went left of center while coming around a curve.

Driver hits school bus head-on BY BOB BRALEY

WOLCOTTVILLE — A man was airlifted after his car drove head-on into an East Noble school bus Thursday afternoon, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. No one on the bus was injured, deputies said. The car’s driver, whose name was not released Thursday afternoon, complained of hip injuries after the crash. He was airlifted by Samaritan helicopter to Parkview Regional Medical

Center, Fort Wayne. No other injuries were reported. Police said the car was southbound on Angling Road, just south of C.R. 1200N, shortly before 4 p.m. when it went left of center while coming around a curve. The car crashed head-on into East Noble school bus 23. The bus driver had tried to avoid the collision. The impact sent the car off the road on the southbound side. After the impact, the bus left the road on the northbound side and drove head-on into a speed limit

sign and Noble REMC utility pole, breaking the pole. East Noble officials said the bus was on its normal route at the time of the accident. The name of the bus driver was not released Thursday afternoon. A Noble REMC crew had to be called in to replace the pole before the bus could be removed. Debris was scattered across the road for about 30 yards around the crash site. Why the car’s driver drove left of center was not determined Thursday afternoon.

Two men hurt as semi collides with lift at I-69 bridge project BY MIKE MARTURELLO

ANGOLA — Two workers with a private contractor replacing a bridge over Interstate 69 were injured when a semi collided with the hydraulic lift they were in while on the job Thursday afternoon. The two were working on the reconstruction of the C.R. 325W overpass of I-69, just north of the rest stop on the southbound lanes. Mary Foster with the Indiana Department of Transportation said orange barrels had been placed in the road to divert traffic out of the work site, which was the travel lane of the highway. The men, Ted Cook of Marion and Brandon Morris of Columbia

City, are employees with Pioneer Associates, Albion. The company received the bid to replace the bridge at a cost of $717,000. The work is to be complete early in November. Adam Sparks, Indianapolis, the southbound semi driver, told police he slowed and was passing under the bridge when he heard a collision with his truck, said Steuben County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Phil Nott. Sparks said he had not seen the bucket of the lift prior to striking it. He continued south then turned around and returned to the scene. Nott said a brace was being removed from the south side of the bridge that was over the passing

lane. As Sparks drove under the bridge, he struck the bucket of the lift with the passenger side of his cab. Morris fell from the bucket into the passing lane of the highway and Cook remained in the bucket but also was injured, Nott said. Foster said the men were conscious when they were taken from the scene by Steuben County Emergency Medical Service crews. They were taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center in serious to critical condition, Nott said. Southbound traffic was closed for a short period while investigators from the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department investigated and the scene was cleared.

From the Liberty Bell to Alcatraz, federal landmarks and offices reopened Thursday. Furloughed employees were relieved to get back to work — even if faced with email backlogs — but many worried about another such disruption in a matter of months. “We’d hate to have to live through this all over again,” Richard Marcus, a 29-year employee of the National Archives in Washington, said after the government shutdown finally ended. Nationwide, from big-city office buildings to wilderness outposts, innumerable federal services and operations shifted back into gear after 16 days. The U.S. Forest Service started lifting a logging ban on national forests. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services restarted the computerized system used to verify the legal status of workers. Boat trips resumed to Alcatraz, the former federal prison in San Francisco Bay, with 1,600 tickets snapped up by tourists in the first hour of business. In Alaska, federal officials rushed to get the red king crab fishing season underway. The opening had been delayed because furloughed workers were not around to issue crab-quota permits. National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis said all 401 national park units — from the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in California to Acadia National Park in Maine — were reopening Thursday. More than 20,000 National Park Service employees had been among the 800,000 federal workers sent home at the peak of the shutdown At Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, employees were busy with reopening chores. They returned just in time to begin closing the parks up again for the winter in a couple of weeks. At Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park, one couple’s long wait to see the Liberty Bell and other attractions finally drew to a close. SEE SHUTDOWN, PAGE A9

Band hopes to add to success in regional BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — The East Noble Marching Knights enter regional competition Saturday at Lafayette Jefferson High School in Lafayette having earned some of the highest scores this season in more than six years. The band will be one of 15 units in Class B seeking to qualify

for semistate. Ten will move on. East Noble is scheduled to perform at 6:35 p.m. “This is a very competitive regional this year, and in reality 13 groups should advance, but only 10 will,” said Bryan Munoz, East Noble director of bands. “We are in a great spot, but you can never predict results as our activity is so subjective, and you cannot guess

what six judges will think of your show from week to week.” At the regional, bands will be rated gold for a score of 70 or more, silver for scores of 60-69, bronze for scores 50-59 and participation for 49 and lower. East Noble has scored as high as 84 in competition this season. “We’re having our best season we have had since I’ve been director,

and some of our highest scores in over six years,” said Munoz. Other Class B bands competing at Lafayette are DeKalb, Northridge, Fort Wayne North Side, Columbia City, Concord, New Castle, Elkhart Memorial, Elkhart Central, Zionsville, Greenfield-Central, Plymouth, Pendleton Heights, Munster and Lowell.

Ligonier council debating mayoral pension idea BY BOB BUTTGEN

LIGONIER — The City Council will continue to wrestle with a decision on whether or not to add the mayor’s job to the Indiana Public Employees Retirement Fund (PERF.) The issue first came up at Monday night’s regular council meeting, and was tabled until Thursday night, when a special meeting was scheduled. At Thursday’s special meeting, after several minutes of discussion, council members voted to table the idea again until its next meeting on Monday, Oct. 28. Currently all full-time city employees except the mayor are in the state’s retirement system. The city must pay a portion of

the employees’ salaries into the system each year. Starting in 2014 that rate will be 11.2 percent. In addition, employees also pay three-percent of their pay into the fund. A person must have 10 years of service in a PERF-covered job in order to start receiving a pension. That 10-year mark was the focus of much of the discussion at the council meeting. Council member Chris Fought said he was against adding the mayor to PERF because the mayor’s job should not be a long-term position of 10 years or more. Two members of the public also addressed the issue with the council. Local businessman Tom Janes, also a member of

the Noble County Council, said he was against adding the mayor to the state’s pension fund for the same reason that Fought spoke against it. Council member Ken Schuman, who was absent from Monday’s meeting, indicated he needed more time to study the issue and made a motion to table the idea until the next meeting. Schuman also encouraged council members to gather input from their constituents before making a decision. Mayor Patty Fisel is in the middle of her second four-year term and abstained from participating in the discussion. The pension issue would not apply to her unless she ran for a third term.

BUTLER — Butler resident Terry Gordon is described as a fun-loving, caring person, according to a family member. Gordon, 36, remains hospitalized in critical condition at a Fort Wayne hospital after she was hit by a freight train early Saturday morning west of the downtown Norfolk Southern railroad crossing in Butler. “She opened her eyes for a few seconds at a time (Wednesday),” said brother-in-law Brent Lopez. Although she is on a breathing machine for assistance, Gordon is able to breathe on her own, he said. Since she was struck, Gordon has undergone multiple surgeries, including having a steel plate inserted into her foot and plastic surgery to repair facial fractures, he said. Gordon has lived in Butler for about five years, attends church locally, and works for Maintenance on Wheels. “She’s just fun-loving,” Lopez said in describing

Trine students win awards at American Criminal Justice Association conference ANGOLA — Trine University’s Tau Alpha Omicron chapter of the American Criminal Justice Association brought home 30 awards from the 2013 regional conference in Chicago last weekend. The TAO chapter competed against students from eight different schools from the Midwest region in criminal justice-related events. The students, all criminal justice majors, claimed five team awards, including two first-place finishes, and 25 individual awards at the conference. The event aims to improve criminal justice through educational activities, promote professionalism in law enforcement and awareness of

criminal justice issues, encourage the expansion of criminal justice education and training, provide a voice for professionals and students of criminal justice and promote high ethical standards in conduct, training and higher education in the field. The students and professor Craig Laker garnered top three finishes in handgun marksmanship. Trine took first and second place in the handgun Upper Division three-member team competition. Finishing first was the team of Andrew Wilhelm, a Waterloo senior; Matt Holewa, a Kalamazoo, Mich., junior; and Josh Howe, a LaGrange junior. Taking second place

was the team of Andrew O’Connor, a Huntertown junior; John Kidd, a Fishers junior; and Amiee Huston, a Marion sophomore. In the Professional Division, the team of Laker, Zach Terrell, an Angola junior; and Kayla Keith, a Munster freshman, won third place. Wilhelm also took first place in the Individual Upper Division handgun marksmanship with a 407/480. Among three-member teams in crime scene investigation in the Upper Division, the team of Wilhelm, Holewa and Howe also won first place. In Lower Division, John Daniel, a Fort Wayne sophomore; Brittney Hampton, a Hamlet junior; and Marc Edwards, a Grovertown junior, came in second. In the Professional Division, the team of Laker, Terrell and Keith took third place. Trine students also fared well on ACJA written exams. In all divisions, the students and faculty won 10 awards, including Wilhelm winning Top Academic Award for the student with the most placements in all categories. The written exams covered the criminal justice areas of criminal law, juvenile justice, police management, corrections and knowledge of ACJA national chapter Lambda Alpha Epsilon. “Our students competed against 100 other college students from throughout the Midwest,” Laker said. “I am very proud of their accomplishments and teamwork. This was one of our best years in the regional competition. We sincerely believe that applying their education at Trine University to real-world applications is critical for their future career plans.” The National ACJA conference is set for March 9-14 in Kansas City, Kan. Six to nine Trine students will attend the national conference and compete.

Sex assault case to get fresh start MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) — The case of a 14-year-old girl who says she was raped by an older boy from her Missouri high school and left passed out on her porch in freezing temperatures is expected to get a fresh start under a special prosecutor. A special prosecutor will be able to launch his own investigation, interview witnesses and work independently from the local prosecutor who’s faced intense scrutiny for dropping felony charges in the case last year, experts said Thursday. “The idea is really to have a third party who is removed from the process, who can bring the appearance of objectivity and neutrality,� said Richard Reuben, a professor at the University of Missouri School of Law. “At the end of the day they would look like a prosecutor who is truly independent.�

1.8 million-year-old skull gives glimpse of our evolution

Rare whale found dead in California LOS ANGELES (AP) — A rare whale that has a dolphin-shaped head and saber-like teeth has been found dead on Los Angeles’ Venice Beach, even though it prefers frigid subarctic waters. The roughly 15-footlong female Stejneger’s beaked whale washed ashore Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Times reported. A truck hauled away the mammal, which was being examined at the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum to determine how it died. The Stejneger’s beaked whale is rarely seen in the wild. The species typically dives deep in subarctic waters to feed on squid and small fish. It is believed to migrate as far south as Northern California, and how the whale ended up so far south will probably remain a mystery.



U.S. Senator-elect Cory Booker, left, is greeted by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie before a groundbreaking ceremony for a supermarket, Thursday, in Newark, N.J. A day

Booker wins N.J. Senate seat, says he’s ‘a scrapper’ NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — U.S. senator-elect Cory Booker said Thursday he’s ready to go to Washington and is not afraid if he “breaks dishes� trying to serve his constituents in New Jersey. Booker, 44, the Democratic mayor of Newark, made the rounds on the morning talk shows a day after defeating Republican Steve Lonegan. His win came after an aggressive two-month race to finish the term of Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who died in office in June at age 89. Booker said he wants to channel Americans’ frustration with Congress into energy for change. “I think everybody

feels there’s fatigue and frustration with how things are, which creates a great climate for change,� Booker said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.� �Often before you have great victory, you have to have great frustration.� The mayor of New Jersey’s largest city takes to Washington a national profile — boosted by a strong social media presence, frequent television appearances and his status as a surrogate for Barack Obama during the president’s 2012 re-election campaign — just as the federal government begins functioning again after a 16-day shutdown. He hasn’t even started

his job as senator, but he is already being asked if he wants to run for president. “I would rule it out,� he said on WNYW’s “Good Day New York.� �I’m going into the Senate. If I break dishes on the way to try to serve the people of New Jersey, so be it.� Booker called himself a “scrapper� and said he was able to change Newark despite people claiming its problems were intractable, which is what he said people are now saying about Congress. “I find it eerily familiar with what people are saying to me now, because it was said 15 years ago in Newark,� he said. “The problems are too big.�

Iraq: Wave of car, suicide blasts kills at least 61 BAGHDAD (AP) — A barrage of car bomb and suicide bomb blasts rocked Baghdad and two northern Iraqi communities Thursday, killing at least 61 people during a major holiday period and extending a relentless wave of bloodshed gripping the country. The bulk of the blasts struck in mainly Shiite Muslim parts of the Iraqi capital shortly after nightfall, sending ambulances racing through the streets with sirens blaring. Authorities reported nine car bomb explosions across Baghdad, including one near a playground that killed two children. It was the deadliest day in Iraq since Oct. 5, when a suicide bombing targeting Shiite pilgrims and other

attacks left at least 75 dead. Iraq is weathering its deadliest outburst of violence since 2008, raising fears the country is returning to the widespread sectarian killing that pushed it to the brink of civil war in the years after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. Iraq’s resurgent branch of al-Qaida is believed to be behind much of the killing as part of its campaign to undermine the Shiite-led government. Thursday’s bloodshed began early in the morning when a suicide bomber blew up his explosives-laden car among houses in an ethnic minority village in northern Iraq. That attack, in the Shabak village of al-Mouafaqiyah near the restive city of Mosul, 360 kilometers (225 miles) northwest of

Baghdad, killed at least 15 and wounded 52, police said. The United Nations envoy to Iraq condemned the attack and said rising violence in Ninevah province requires “urgent action and strengthened security cooperation� between regional authorities and the central government. “The United Nations pays particular attention to the protection of minority communities who continue suffering from heinous attacks (and) economic and social barriers,� envoy Nickolay Mladenov said. Another suicide bomber struck hours later, setting off an explosives belt inside a cafe in Tuz Khormato, killing three and wounding 28, police chief Col. Hussein Ali Rasheed said.


Our Cruise/Tours offer value you won’t find anywhere else!







DMANISI, Georgia (AP) — The discovery of a 1.8-million-year-old skull of a human ancestor buried under a medieval Georgian village provides a vivid picture of early evolution and indicates our family tree may have fewer branches than some believe, scientists say. The fossil is the most complete pre-human skull uncovered. With other partial remains previously found at the rural site, it gives researchers the earliest evidence of human ancestors moving out of Africa and spreading north to the rest of the world, according to a study published Thursday in the journal Science. The skull and other remains offer a glimpse of a population of pre-humans of various sizes living at the same time — something that scientists had not seen before for such an ancient era. This diversity bolsters one of two competing theories about the way our early ancestors evolved, spreading out more like a tree than a bush. Nearly all of the previous pre-human discoveries have been fragmented bones, scattered over time and locations — like a smattering of random tweets of our evolutionary history. The findings at Dmanisi are more complete, weaving more of a short story. Before the site was found, the movement from Africa was put at about 1 million years ago. When examined with the earlier Georgian finds, the skull “shows that this special immigration out of Africa happened much earlier than we thought and a much more primitive group did it,� said study lead author David Lordkipanidze, director of the Georgia National Museum. “This is important to understanding human evolution.� For years, some scientists

have said humans evolved from only one or two species, much like a tree branches out from a trunk, while others say the process was more like a bush with several offshoots that went nowhere. Even bush-favoring scientists say these findings show one single species nearly 2 million years ago at the former Soviet republic site. But they disagree that the same conclusion can be said for bones found elsewhere, such as Africa. However, Lordkipanidze and colleagues point out that the skulls found in Georgia are different sizes but are considered to be the same species. So, they reason, it’s likely the various skulls found in different places and times in Africa may not be different species, but variations in one species. To see how a species can vary, just look in the mirror, they said. “Danny DeVito, Michael Jordan and Shaquille O’Neal are the same species,� Lordkipanidze said. The adult male skull found wasn’t from our species, Homo sapiens. It was from an ancestral species — in the same genus or class called Homo — that led to modern humans. Scientists say the Dmanisi population is likely an early part of our long-lived primary ancestral species, Homo erectus. Tim White of the University of California, Berkeley, wasn’t part of the study but praised it as “the first good evidence of what these expanding hominids looked like and what they were doing.� Fred Spoor at the Max Planck Institute in Germany, a competitor and proponent of a busy family tree with many species disagreed with the study’s overall conclusion, but he lauded the Georgia skull discovery as critical and even beautiful.

S&P 500 reaches all-time high after US debt deal NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market hit an all-time high Thursday as Wall Street put the government shutdown and debt ceiling crisis behind it and focused on corporate earnings. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 11.61 points, or 0.7 percent, to close at 1,733.15 — a record close. Nine of the 10 industry groups in the index finished higher, with technology the only group that fell.

TOKYO (AP) — The mayor of a Japanese island devastated by a deadly typhoon apologized Thursday for failing to issue an evacuation order, as rescue workers combed through mountains of debris searching for the missing. Typhoon Wipha, which swept up Japan’s east coast on Wednesday, killed at least 22 people, and more than 30 others are missing, government officials said. Most of the victims were on the island of Izu Oshima, about 120 kilometers (75 miles) south of Tokyo. “There is concern that perhaps more lives could

average after reporting earnings that beat expectations from financial analysts. The Dow ended the day down two points, or 0.01 percent, to 15,371.65. The index of 30 big U.S. companies was held back by declines in IBM, Goldman Sachs and UnitedHealth. IBM’s third-quarter revenue fell and missed Wall Street’s forecast by more than $1 billion. The stock closed down $11.90, or 6 percent, to $174.80. Earlier, it had touched its lowest level of the past year — $172.57 Goldman Sachs also weighed down the index. The investment bank’s revenue fell sharply as trading in bonds and other

securities slowed. Goldman fell $3.93, or 2.4 percent, to $158.32. The focus on earnings is a change of pace for Wall Street, which had been absorbed in Washington’s political drama over the last month. Now that the U.S. has avoided the possibility of default, at least for a few months, earnings news is expected to dominate trading for the next couple weeks. So far, only 79 companies in the S&P 500 have reported third-quarter results, according to S&P Capital IQ. Analysts expect earnings at those companies to increase 3.3 percent over the same period a year ago.

The search was hampered by the slippery mud. Town officials had issued repeated warnings of river flooding early Wednesday morning, during the worst of

Initially, Kawashima defended the decision, saying Wednesday night that he feared a middle-of-the-night evacuation under such harsh conditions would do more harm than good. Disaster management minister Keiji Furuya told reporters that the central government was looking into the case and that he planned to send a team of experts to the island later this week to “investigate what exactly happened and why.”

Art can be effective therapy for teen drug abuse

Due to the availability of prescription drugs and the popularity of cannabis, teen drug abuse has steadily increased. Drugs that modulate behavior such as ADHD drugs stimulate the same receptors in the brain that cocaine does and have become the alternative to illegal highs for many young people. While cannabis is the most frequently misused substance among 12th-graders (with 36.4 percent of them using it in 2012), it was closely followed in third place by Adderall, an amphetamine used to treat ADHD. Drugs prescribed by a doctor are often seen as safe but they can have effects that are similar or as severe as those caused by heroin, cocaine or MDMA (ecstasy). In the case of Adderall, because it is an amphetamine it is habit forming and its use or misuse can result in addiction. It is also capable of triggering severe mental changes, difficulty breathing and sudden loss of consciousness. If anyone takes it and it isn’t meant for them or they don’t follow dosage guidelines, they could damage their heart or even end their life.

Prescription drugs are dealt at school Because of the large number of teens who are now prescribed drugs, they are now being trafficked in high schools, not only by students looking for an easily obtainable high, but by students who are using drugs to stay awake at night and to concentrate better so that they can pass exams. Unintentionally, those who have used behavioral medications recreationally or to boost academic performance can find that they quickly become addicted. Some teens have even faked symptoms of ADHD in order to fool their parents and doctors into prescriptions. Signs your teen may be abusing drugs include insomnia or a decreased need to sleep, decreasing appetite, hyperactivity, dilated pupils, faster breathing and euphoria — intense feelings of joy or excitement. He may care less about his physical appearance. His personality might also change from relaxed and friendly to aggressive and paranoid and he may become extroverted or lose his inhibitions.

Art can help teens Art therapy may help a teen overcome a substance misuse problem, particularly if it is applied with other treatment plans. Using art to express a person’s feelings and to help with self-expression can assist those who are fighting with themselves internally or who lack the confidence to engage in talk therapy with a counselor and help to re-build dented self-esteem. Teenagers, who may be anxious about sharing problems with others or find it hard to relate to an adult, are able to express emotions in this way. It reduces stress and will make a person feel healthier with less less anxiety and depression. In this relaxed state, it may be easier for them to avoid using drugs. Some centers run retreats for people with addictions. Therapists can look at a teen’s drawings with him to help him identify triggers for his behavior patterns so that he can take steps to stop the cycle. Art therapy can also be used as a motivational tool. By asking the person to draw their life and where they would like to be in the future, it can give them the courage to change. The teen does not have to be good at art in order to have art therapy and in some cases he doesn’t even have to draw. Painting, clay modelling, dance, music or role play can all help. Art therapy sessions can be done in groups. Sometimes people find it psychologically uplifting that they are surrounded by other people who are going through similar problems to themselves. Others may find their situation too personal and benefit more from one to one therapy.

Recovery is possible Art therapy can teach new ways of dealing with difficult scenarios or emotions, which, when used in conjunction with medical treatment, increase the chance of success. By changing thought patterns, ingrained patterns of behavior can also be changed, bringing life-long coping strategies to the recovered addict and changing his life for the better.

More Americans self-identify as independent than Democrat or Republican … The challenge for the moderate middle is to produce a leader, preferably one un-indebted to billionaires or radio babbleheads.

• As for the shutdown/spending dilemma, the center is clear: The federal government should spend less and go light on regulation. For now, more trust Democrats than they do Republicans, hardly surprising given circumstances. Fully 58 percent are pessimistic about politics in this country, but they trust Democrats (and Oprah!) more than Republicans. Of all the GOP leaders, only New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie received more than 1 percent (2 percent) in the trust sweeps. Oprah got 6 percent, Jon Stewart and Colin Powell each got 1 percent, as did Billy Graham. Rush Limbaugh got 0 percent. Obama won with 9 percent. The takeaway from this poll — and others showing that more Americans self-identify as independent than Democrat or Republican — is that the country is not as divided as one would imagine. The challenge for the moderate middle is to create an organizing principle — all things in moderation? — and produce a centrist, non-ideological, pragmatic leader, preferably one un-indebted to billionaires or radio babbleheads.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Diablo Cody’s real life story almost sounds like a movie she might write: A dynamic young woman with a unique voice wins an Oscar for her first screenplay, is at once embraced and vilified by the media, and then emerges with more opportunities and greater self-assurance than before. Today, though, Cody is apologetic, and a tad

and winning several new artist awards. But with his sophomore album, “See You Tonight,” McCreery says his career is now in his hands alone.

McCreery finds his voice on post-‘Idol’ album NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Scotty McCreery rode his 2011 “American Idol” win to a platinum album and several new artist awards. With his second album, “See You Tonight,” McCreery says his career is now in his hands alone. “We have been off the show for 2½ years,” the 20-year-old said. “The wave pretty much has to be my wave now. We have to make our own momentum. That comes with success, with radio success, but you’ve also got to make the good music first, the good songs for that to happen.” In McCreery’s case, ‘Idol’ was a platform and not a career. He believes this album and its success at country radio is a big factor in his transition from a TV star to a country star. The songs on “See You Tonight,” released on Tuesday, stay true to McCreery’s values and his love of traditional country, but he also expands his sound and even riffs on country

The 35-year-old bounds into a nondescript tavern down the street from Universal Studios for happy hour, fresh faced in a Grateful Dead T-shirt and jeans, her red bob still slightly damp from the shower. She hugs the reporter she’s meeting for the first time and offers a

In this 2012 file photo, Scotty McCreery performs at Aarons Amphitheater in Atlanta. McCreery rode a wave of success after winning the 2011 season of “American Idol,” with his first record going platinum

radio’s current infatuation with songs about trucks and beer. Album producer Frank Rogers, who has worked with Darius Rucker and Brad Paisley, said McCreery’s musical influences, like a lot of younger music fans, are not just traditional country and that is reflected in the new album. “He’s also a college kid who has a very diverse iPod and playlist,” Rogers said. “I don’t think anything is forced in there, but we brought in some musical elements, things that that maybe he hasn’t put on a record before, but they are part of his musical vocabulary.” The title track is a catchy love song that he hints may be inspired by his own love life. “Didn’t just come out of thin air,” he notes with a smile. The album also features some of his original songwriting for the first time, an aspect that made the soft-spoken McCreery somewhat nervous.

“At first you’re a little scared to come out of your shoes and share some of your thoughts,” he said. “You have to share those intimate thoughts to get a really good song.” Although he is still is a young writer, he wanted to add some more depth to the emotions on his album by adding a few more songs about heartbreak and love. “On the first record, everything was happy-golucky in the world,” he said. “We know that’s not true. We have a couple of songs on there that make you think, that are a little deeper about relationships.” And his best sounding board for his new album turned out to be his college roommates at North Carolina State, where he is a sophomore trying to lead a fairly normal life outside of Nashville. “They shoot it straight with me,” McCreery said. “I call them my biggest haters.” Their verdict? “They have been loving this record.”

string of sorrys. “I’m a Midwesterner,” she says. “This kind of tardiness is unacceptable.” Very un-celebrity-like, Cody arrives without a publicist or assistant, since she has neither, and settles onto a barstool to discuss her directorial debut, “Paradise,” which is in theaters Friday. After a Hollywood crash course that began with her best screenplay Oscar for 2007’s “Juno” and continued with a TV deal with Steven Spielberg and two more movies, it was time to try directing. Her challenge, like that of her protagonist in “Paradise”: To discover her central character. “I want to believe that you can maintain your essential core and hang onto your innocence in a way — even if your body is burned, even if you get pregnant as a teenager, even if you’re a stripper, even if you win an Oscar with your first screenplay,” she said, referring to personal experiences. “I feel like human beings have a pretty amazing, resilient spirit and you can get through a lot of (stuff) and become the best version of yourself.” After Cody captivated Hollywood with “Juno,”

people pressed her to direct, but she wasn’t driven to try it. She’d never made a short film or helmed an episode of the TV show she created, “United States of Tara.” She didn’t feel she had to. “I’ve worked with directors who were really respectful of my scripts and who involved me in the filmmaking process, so I used to say I had a good racket going,” she said. “All I had to do was write the script, and then I got to sit back and take credit for these amazing films.” But, “this was my fourth feature I’m getting made — I’m very lucky — and at this point, I almost felt like I was avoiding it (directing).” “Paradise,” which she also wrote, stars Julianne Hough as Lamb Mannerheim, a small-town religious girl whose faith is challenged after a disfiguring accident leaves her covered with burn scars. Lamb sets out to experience all she’s been sheltered from, so she heads to Las Vegas, where she meets a pair of nightclub workers (Octavia Spencer and Russell Brand), who accompany her as she checks off a list of “sins” such as drinking, gambling and dancing.

Syrian general killed BEIRUT (AP) — One of Syria’s most powerful military officers was killed in fighting with al-Qaidalinked Islamic extremists in an oil-rich eastern province largely controlled by the rebels, Syrian state-run television said Thursday. The fighting came amid a new push to hold an elusive peace conference for Syria’s civil war, with the government proposing the talks start late next month, though there was no sign the opposition would attend. Maj. Gen. Jameh Jameh was killed in the provincial capital of Deir el-Zour, where he was the head of military intelligence, state-run TV said. He was the most senior military

officer to be killed in more than a year. The report did not say when or how Jameh was killed, only that he died “while he was carrying out his mission in defending Syria and its people.” The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Jameh was killed by a sniper bullet during clashes with rebels, including members of al-Qaida-linked Jabhat al-Nusra or Nusra Front. Jameh’s cousin, Haitham Jameh, told Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen TV that the general was killed when a bomb exploded as he led his troops in an operation in Deir el-Zour, site of more than a year of clashes.

impact it has — hopefully they’ll make adjustments. “They do listen to people,” he said about the Obama administration. “They listened to big business and delayed the business mandate. They’ve made changes themselves, but he would rather do it himself rather than working with Congress.” Stutzman said he still believes it is unconstitutional to force Americans to buy health insurance or face a penalty. The bill passed Wednesday night funds the federal government through Jan. 15, 2014, and extends the debt ceiling to Feb. 7 or longer.

“We’ll get through Christmas and the New Year, and we’ll see what happens,” Stutzman said. “We have to get control of our debt. This debt has almost doubled and will double by the time President Obama’s presidency is up.” “This president has been governing from crisis to crisis,” Stutzman added. “We have gone up to the brink before. The president said this morning that he hopes to focus on these budget issues over the next couple of months in a productive way. If history tells us anything, he wants to raise taxes, and he’s never been serious about tax reform.” Stutzman said Democratic President Bill Clinton was

very good at finding ways to common ground with Republicans, adding, “There was a lot of give and take, but that is not there with President Obama.” Stutzman was looking forward to returning to his family farm near Howe for the weekend and said he would “maybe even jump in the combine on Saturday.” He is scheduled to return the Capitol Tuesday, when the Farm Bill will be on the agenda. Stutzman said he is hoping to succeed in his push to separate the Farm Bill from funding for food stamps, “trying to get a Farm Bill that’s responsible to taxpayers as well as a bill that works for agriculture.”

SHUTDOWN: Furloughed workers to get back pay FROM PAGE A1

Karen and Richard Dodds of Oklahoma City were on a quest to see every national park in the U.S. They arrived in Philadelphia about three weeks ago in their motor home, visiting Valley Forge just before the shutdown. They stayed on in the area, awaiting a settlement. “They didn’t solve anything by this,” Katie Dodds said of the temporary agreement in Congress that funds the government only through Jan. 15 and gives

it the borrowing authority it needs only through Feb. 7. “The worst part is they’ll do it again in January and February.” Among the many sites reopening in Washington were the Smithsonian Institution’s museums and the World War II memorial on the National Mall, which had been the scene of protests over the shutdown. Smithsonian spokeswoman Linda St. Thomas said the museum complex lost about $2.8 million

in revenue during the shutdown. The National Zoo was set to reopen Friday, though its popular panda cam went live Thursday morning, giving fans a view of a cub wriggling about as its mother, Mei Xiang, tucked her paws under her chin and watched. Federal workers who were furloughed or worked without pay during the shutdown will get back pay in their next paychecks, which for most employees come Oct. 29.

Barons roll to regional final Two quick goals late in first half sparks DeKalb in victory over F.W. North Side BY PHIL FRIEND

HUNTERTOWN — Soccer pundits will tell you the best time to attack the goal is right after a team has scored. And that’s exactly what the DeKalb boys soccer team did in Thursday’s Class 2A Carroll Regional semifinal against Fort Wayne North. Just before halftime, the No. 16 Barons scored goals 26 seconds apart to take a three-goal lead against the Redskins and never looked back, defeating North 5-0 to advance to Saturday’s regional final. “There’s no doubt it’s a game of momentum,” said DeKalb coach Jed Freels. “We talked about that a lot and (Thursday night) it was a game where, if momentum went one direction, it would keep growing.” DeKalb will play Canterbury (12-7-1) in the championship at 7 p.m. Saturday. The Cavaliers defeated Bellmont 3-0. Landon Cochran and Brennan Cochran scored the Barons’ goals right before halftime, both assisted by junior Brad Lancaster. In the 36th minute, Lancaster send a perfect

through ball nearly 40 yards to the foot of Landon Cochran, who slotted his shot past North goalkeeper Halim Sabanagic for a 2-0 lead. Just 26 seconds later, Lancaster send a long lob from midfield into the box, and Brennan Cochran won the 50-50 ball and scored seconds later to make it 3-0. “We’ve been working hard and after that goal, we really got a good boost in morale and wanted to put another one in,” Lancaster said. “I heard (Brennan) calling for it, I saw him and I just wished for good luck and sent it up there. It’s extremely exciting, especially when Brennan brought it down.” Freels praised the efforts of Lancaster and his partner in central midfield, senior Grant Lockwood. “The one thing we can say about our center-mids is they’re not looking to score,” Freels said. “They’re all about making us a better team. Our defenders want a shutout and our center-mids want us to score and they know to do that they got to get it to the forwards and we have forwards that can score.” In the blink of an eye,

the Redskins were put away. They had put together a couple of runs shortly before that point, and a shot by Hussein Maung nailed the crossbar just three minutes before those Baron goals. Lancaster also assisted on DeKalb’s first goal, scored by Brennan Cochran in the 16th minute. Lancaster sent a cross into the box to the junior, who made a move on the defenders and scored. DeKalb would extend its lead to 4-0 eight minutes into the second half courtesy of senior Chase Secrist. Sabanagic couldn’t corral a shot by Brennan Cochran and Secrist put in the rebound. The Barons scored their final goal in the last minute of the match, courtesy of a Thang Suan own goal. Thursday’s result was much different than their regular season contest, a 2-1 DeKalb win. “We just finished all of our shots and that made a huge difference,” Freels said. DeKalb goalkeeper Ashtin Egly was credited with four saves on six Redskin shots. Sabanagic made eight saves as the Barons tallied 18 total shots.


DeKalb senior Chase Secrist scored one goal in the Barons’ 5-0 victory over Fort Wayne North in the Class 2A Carroll Regional semifinal Thursday.

Seasons end for Westview, Panthers BY JAMES FISHER

GARRETT — Bishop Luers and Blackhawk Christian used resounding victories in Class A regional semifinal boys soccer play on Thursday to send the squads into Saturday’s championship game, which will be played in Garrett. In the process, the squads ended the season for Westview and Lakewood Park. “They’re a mighty good team,” Westview coach Dennis Berkey said after his squad’s 7-1 loss to Luers. “We tried to do as much as we could. They were able to handle what we threw at them.” Lakewood Park’s season came to an end with a 3-1 loss to Blackhawk. Bishop Luers 7, Westview 1 Luers won its sixth-straight match, including victories over Woodlan and Heritage on the way to the team’s third-straight sectional title. The Warriors struck first, with Bucky Carpenter connecting less than five minutes into the contest. “We got that one early and knew our guys had come ready to play,” Berkey said. “I thought we caught them on their heels, but they didn’t panic and stuck to their game plan.” The Warriors benefitted very

little from the early momentum grabber. “We were a little impatient at first,” said Luers coach John Myers. “As the half opened up, we started picking up a little bit.” The Knights certainly did. The squad responded with goals by Dylan Hoya, Logan West and Eian Connolly to lead 3-1 at the half. Seth Caldwell assisted on two of the goals. “When we scored that second one, it meant a lot,” Myers said. “Westview is a really good team, we were going to make them beat us by passing.” Luers would make it 4-1 in the opening seconds of the second half when Hoya scored his second goal of the game. The Knights would add three more goals in the waning moments of the contest, with West, Peter McNamara and Brady Bubb connecting. “Obviously they did a good job of flooding the interior,” Berkey said. Westview advanced to the regional semifinal with two 2-1 wins in sectional competition. The Warriors rallied to beat an upset-minded Prairie Heights team in the semifinals and won in overtime against Lakeland in the sectional title match. “We hadn’t had a sectional title in a long time and they brought

one to us,” Berkey said. Luers has just one regional title in school history, that coming in 1995. The Knights were knocked out of the tournament the previous two seasons by Fort Wayne Canterbury, which went on to win state championships both times.

Chargers win NECC opener BY BOB BUTTGEN

LIGONIER — In high school volleyball, the level and intensity of the play seems to intensify as the season progresses. This was proven by the West Noble Chargers, who scored a three-set, home court victory over Lakeland in the first round of the Northeast Corner Conference tournament Thursday night. Scores were 25-11, 25-20 and 25-21 as West Noble (5-24) moved into the winner’s pool in the next round, set for Saturday morning at Westview High School. Lakeland (3-15) will also play Saturday at Westview, but in the consolation brackets. West Noble coach Danielle Powell and her players were ecstatic after the win. They lost to the Lakers during the regular season. “The girls played really aggressive and really smart tonight,” she

said. “We made a lot of improvements as the season has gone on; made a lot of adjustments and the girls have stepped up their play.” West Noble received good play from several girls including freshman Kaylie Warble who had eight kills. Sophomore Kenzie Teel had seven kills and senior Rachel Schermerhorn recorded six. “Rachel (Schermerhorn) played well tonight and Kelsie Peterson had a lot of digs on defense,” Powell said. “Amanda (Huntsman) really picked up a lot for us and Erin Mawhorter made a lot of blocks.” Schermerhorn had 12 digs and Peterson notched 11 to go alone with 21 assists. The Chargers never trailed in the first game and enjoyed a 10-point cushion for most of the set before winning 25-11. The second game was different as Lakeland jumped out to an early 8-5 lead before the Chargers tied it

up at 10 and never trailed again. The third and final game was much tighter. After the Chargers led 7-6, Lakeland came back and either led or the tied game up until West Noble regained control at 21-20, and held on for the 25-21 win. “Our hitters were good tonight. Everybody stepped up and played the role we need them to play,” Powell said. “Lakeland has a tough, scrappy defense. “We’re excited to go into Saturday like this. We’re putting everything together,” she added. In other NECC tournament first-round matches Thursday, Eastside defeated visiting Fremont 13-25, 25-13, 25-11, 25-18 and Central Noble won at Hamilton in three games. Conference tournament pool play matches start at 9 a.m. Saturday at Westview. Consolation games will be played at Westview Elementary.

East Noble coach Amstutz honored by Colts KENDALLVILLE — Head football coach Luke Amstutz of East Noble High School has been named the Colts/NFL Coach of the Week after his team improved its won-lost record to 6-2 by beating undefeated New Haven 30-6 Friday. Amstutz has compiled an

overall record of 13-5 in the midst of his second season at East Noble. This is the 14th year the Indianapolis Colts organization is recognizing outstanding Indiana High School football coaches through its Coach of the Week program, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

At the conclusion of the high school football season, each winning coach will receive a framed certificate signed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson and Colts youth football commissioner Mike Prior, as

well as a $1,000 donation from the NFL Foundation. In addition, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield will contribute $1,000 for the school’s athletic fund. All high school head coaches in Indiana are eligible to win the award, based on the coach’s impact on his team, school and community,

as well as the performance of the team. Winners are selected by a panel of high school football media, former athletic directors and other football representatives from all regions of the state. Each Monday following a high school football game weekend, one winner will be announced.

You never know what can happen on the gridiron Some things are just hard to predict. Now tell me, who would have thought that after losing its first five games of the season Norwell would welcome East Noble to the team’s field with a 35-7 thrashing? And then score a shutout win over DeKalb, followed PICKIN’ by a victory THE PREPS over Homestead in the Hannah Holstein following week? As that radio guy Fred says, “that’s why they play the game.” Another one of those shockers came last Friday at East Noble, where the Knights sent New Haven to its first defeat. New Haven, now 5-1 in conference play, can still earn the Northeast Hoosier Conference title with a win over Homestead. A loss by the Bulldogs and wins by East Noble and Carroll would mean a three-way tie for the NHC title. In the Northeast Corner Conference, Fairfield is already assured of a share of the league title. The Falcons put a cap on their portion of the NECC season with a win over previously unbeaten Churubusco last

week. Fairfield won six in a row after stumbling in the second week of the season against Prairie Heights to finish at 7-1 in the league. Churubusco and Lakeland meet in their annual regular season finale in LaGrange. The winner of that game shares the NECC crown with Fairfield. Leo has fate in its own hands in the team’s Allen County Athletic Conference finale at Bluffton. The Lions, who are 8-0 overall, can wrap up an unbeaten ACAC season with the win. Leo has already earned a share of their sixth straight ACAC title. But a loss by the Lions on Friday and a win by Heritage at Garrett would allow the Patriots to share league accolades. 1. Carroll over DeKalb. Chargers simply bring too much to the field. 2. East Noble over Bellmont. Won’t be a laugher, but not far from it. 3. Heritage over Garrett. Railroaders will keep it close. 4. Eastside over Prairie Heights. Home field decides it. 5. Angola over Central Noble. Hornets get some pre-sectional momentum. 6. West Noble over Fremont. Will be a nail-biter. 7. Churubusco over Lakeland. Eagles are angry after first loss of season. 8. Elkhart Christian over Howe School. A growing process in LaGrange

“That was a great way to get things started,” said Blackhawk coach Bob Freeborn. “To get a goal in 30 seconds, it psychologically effects things and the other team.” Lakewood Park coach Terry Exford agreed. “It gave them some momentum, they capitalized,” he said. “Every first goal is a momentum boost.” Never the less, just under eight minutes later, Lakewood Park’s Bradey Gerke evened the score at 1-1 with a Panther strike. However, that turned out to be the lone score for the Panthers. Blackhawk would go ahead to stay nine and a half minutes into the second half when Jones struck again. The Braves would later

make it 3-1 when the ball bounced off a Lakewood Park defender and into the goal with just under 28 minutes left. Things went well enough for the Lakewood Park in the opening 20 minutes of the game, despite a 0-0 halftime tie. The Panthers controlled play early on. “We were lucky we weathered things like we did in the first half,” Freeborn said. “We could have been down 2-0.” The Panthers close the season at 15-3. “This is the sixth year in a row we’ve reached this level,” Exford said. “We still haven’t gotten over the hurdle.” Lakewood Park advanced to the regional tournament by scoring sectional wins over Eastside and Garrett.

Cardinals need 1 more big start from Wacha ST. LOUIS (AP) — For four straight starts, Michael Wacha has been all but untouchable and appeared totally oblivious to the stakes. The St. Louis Cardinals need one more just like that from the pressure-proof rookie to get to the World Series for the second time in three years. Wacha outpitched NL Cy Young front-runner Clayton Kershaw in Game 2 and the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run to take a 2-0 series lead. They’re matched again in Game 6 Friday night, the precocious right-hander and the lefty who’d be at the top of anyone’s list to work a must-win. This time, the Cardinals lead the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2. “I just expect Michael to go out and do what he’s done, just like the rest of our guys,” manager Mike Matheny said. “Stick with what you’ve done all along the way, and don’t ignore and don’t deny the excitement.” The Dodgers brought the series back to St. Louis by muscling up on offense, with Adrian Gonzalez hitting two of their four homers in a 6-4 Game 5 victory Wednesday.

Runs figure to be hard to come by in Game 6, although pitchers won’t have shadows as an ally with a 7:37 p.m. CDT start. Game 2 had a late afternoon start with shadows creeping across Busch Stadium especially in the early innings and lights providing no real help, plus there was fatigue from the Cardinals’ 13-inning win to open the series. “I think you’ll see both clubs get better at-bats just from the standpoint of vision,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. Mattingly was hopeful both Hanley Ramirez (ribs) and Andre Ethier (ankle) would benefit from a travel day Thursday and be in the lineup. “Andre, I expect to play. He just seems to get a little stronger,” Mattingly said. As for Ramirez, who was hit by a pitch in Game 1, “We don’t feel like he’s getting any worse. It’s just a matter of how the game goes for him.” The Cardinals didn’t work out either, taking a bit of a mental break. “We’ve had a lot of these lately,” Matheny said. “Going back and forth I can feel a little jet lag. The guys aren’t going to forget how to hit, forget how to

throw.” Kershaw is the major league ERA leader three years running and worked the Dodgers’ division clincher against Atlanta on three days’ rest. He gave up just two hits in six innings of Game 1 and was ready to go long before the Dodgers’ bats came alive. “I don’t really think about the what-ifs,” Kershaw said. “I always assumed I was going to pitch Game 6.” Kershaw has a career 1-2 postseason record despite an impressive 2.88 postseason ERA. “All we have to do,” Gonzalez said, “is score for him.” Wacha is 2-0 with a microscopic 0.64 ERA in the postseason, allowing just six hits in 14 innings with 17 strikeouts. Counting his last start of the regular season, when he was one out shy of a no-hitter, make it 3-0 with an 0.42 ERA. Slim leads have been of no concern, with the Cardinals totaling five runs in those games. “Just this whole postseason ride has been amazing,” Wacha said. “Hopefully we can just keep it going.” He knows how tough the

opposing pitcher is, but says that can’t be factor. “Kershaw’s a tough pitcher, obviously, and you saw that in his last start,” Wacha said. “But I try not to worry too much about who I’m facing. “Just try to approach it like any other start and just worry about myself, really.” Both are hard throwers from Texas who got to the majors fast. Kershaw was 20 when he made his debut in 2008 and Wacha was 21 and hadn’t been in the system a year when he opened with seven strong innings against the Royals in May. “He obviously handles himself pretty well,” Kershaw said. “I don’t think nerves is going to be the issue for him.” The Dodgers are trying to become the 12th team to rally from a 3-1 deficit to win a best-of-seven series. The Cardinals squandered a 3-1 series last fall against the Giants. Game 7 would be Saturday night, and another rematch. The Dodgers’ Hyun-Jim Ryu worked seven innings of three-hit ball in Game 3 to outpitch Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright, who got no help from a shaky defense.

Ryan retiring as Rangers’ CEO ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nolan Ryan is leaving the Texas Rangers again, stepping away from his CEO role 20 years after ending his Hall of Fame career as a pitcher. In what the team had called a retirement, Ryan said Thursday that he is resigning as chief executive of the Rangers in a move effective at the end of this month. He is also selling his ownership stake in the team to co-chairmen Ray Davis and Bob Simpson. “It closes a chapter of my life in baseball,” Ryan said. “I feel like it’s time for me to move on to other things. It’s been a decision that weighed on my heavily, but I feel like it’s the right decision. … At this point and time, it’s the correct thing for me to do.” Asked about the difference in the team announcing that he was retiring and him calling it a resignation, the 66-year-old Ryan paused and then said he wouldn’t be the CEO of another major league team and called this perhaps the “final chapter” of his storied career in baseball. Ryan’s older son, Reid, became president of the Houston Astros earlier this year. Nolan Ryan dismissed any speculation that he’s leaving the Rangers to join his son and another of the teams he pitched for and worked for in the past. The move takes effect Oct. 31. Ryan became the 10th president of the Rangers in February 2008 when he was hired by former owner Tom Hicks. Ryan added the title of CEO three years later. He was also part of the ownership group that acquired the team in August 2010, months before its first World Series. Ryan’s departure comes less than a year after ownership gave general manager Jon Daniels and chief operating officer Rick George new presidential titles and took the president’s title from Ryan. Davis insisted the change in Ryan’s title earlier this year was just that. “From a corporation standpoint, Nolan’s authority didn’t change at all,” Davis said. “On all major decisions on baseball, Nolan made all final decisions.”

Keenum to start for Texans HOUSTON (AP) — Case Keenum, who hasn’t played in a meaningful game since he was in college back in January 2012, will start at quarterback for the Houston Texans this Sunday in one of the tougher environments in the NFL. Keenum will make his first appearance in a regular-season game against the rugged defense of the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, where the fans just set a Guinness record as the noisiest outdoor stadium in the world. So be it: Keenum will start for Matt Schaub, who is out dealing with injuries to his right ankle and foot, and will try to help the Houston Texans snap a four-game losing streak. “We’re struggling, and we’re looking for a spark,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “I think he deserves an opportunity to go out there. It’s a tough place to play. It’s a tough place to get your first start and all that good stuff. But I’m not sending him out there by himself. I’m sending him out there with his football team and the guys understand that.”

Louisville’s Behanan suspended LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville starting power forward Chane Behanan has been suspended indefinitely by the university for violating school policy. Coach Rick Pitino didn’t specify Thursday what the violation was but said Behanan violated a team rule. The coach said the 6-foot-6, 250-pound Behanan, who played a key role in the Cardinals’ NCAA championship run last season, could possibly return in December. Pitino added that right now, however, he’s “more interested in Chane the man than Chane the basketball player.” Pitino said arrangements had been made for Behanan to return after he committed the infraction, but that the player violated those conditions in less than a week.





Grandpa doles out more to his favorites DEAR ABBY: My sisters and I just realized after comparing notes that our grandfather, who has been giving us an allowance for many years, gives each of us a different amount. We don’t understand why he would do that unless he is playing favorites. Mom says it’s because he’s allowed to give each of us a certain amount per year for tax purposes, but it still doesn’t explain why the amounts are all different. We are a year apart in age, and the differences are substantial. Mom said Grandpa does this with her brothers and sisters, too. Why wouldn’t he give each of us the same amount so that it doesn’t cause hard feelings? I know it’s his money to do with as he pleases and we’re lucky to get any at all, but knowing this has caused hurt feelings. We don’t feel comfortable asking him, but we’d like to

I’m trying to minimize the impact on our daughter, but everything I say to my ex comes across as toxic. Any suggestions? — CONFLICTED FATHER DEAR CONFLICTED FATHER: There is nothing you can do to control your ex’s behavior. But you are right to try to minimize the impact on your little girl.

Avoid unregulated thyroid supplements and come home from work earlier. She became grouchy and irritable. I figured she had developed depression, but what she had developed was hypothyroidism. Her symptoms disappeared within a week of starting treatment. In contrast, as ASK a medical DOCTOR K. student I was called to see a man who been Dr. Anthony had admitted to hospital Komaroff the for a slow heart rate. And it was slow, indeed. The normal rate is 60 to 80 beats per minute, and his was 35. In fact, everything about him was slow. He spoke a sentence

very slowly, two seconds between every word: “Where ... is ... the ... bathroom?” He even laughed slowly. He had severe hypothyroidism. The standard treatment is to take replacement doses of thyroid hormone — pills manufactured by drug companies. But, as several of my patients have pointed out, if you type the word “thyroid” into an Internet search engine, you’ll find a lot more: a sea of articles and advertisements promoting a range of supplements. Some supposedly improve thyroid health. Others even claim to cure hypothyroidism. But these supplements have an unproven track record. In contrast to drugs produced by drug companies, the production of supplements is not closely regulated by the FDA. It gets worse. Many of these supplements contain potentially dangerous levels

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have hypothyroidism. According to the Internet, there are several supplements that could help my symptoms. Should I be taking a supplement along with my thyroid medicine? DEAR READER: Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland (located in the front of the neck) doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones. Every cell in the body needs thyroid hormone for normal function. When there is not enough hormone circulating in the blood, symptoms develop. The most common symptoms of hypothyroidism are fatigue, constipation, weight gain and slowed heart rate. These symptoms can be very subtle, or they can be dramatic. For example, I have a super-energetic, upbeat friend who, about 20 years ago, started to get up later

of thyroid hormone: an uncontrolled amount of the real hormone has been added to the supplement. Anyone taking a high-dose supplement along with thyroid medication could end up suffering the harmful effects of having too much thyroid hormone in their system. The harmful effects include thinning of the bones (osteoporosis) and dangerous abnormal heart rhythms. The most widely used supplements for thyroid health include those containing iodine, such as kelp. But more iodine does not cure hypothyroidism. In fact, a nutritional task force found that nearly all claims of supplements that supposedly enhance thyroid function are unproven. DR.

Having baby in earthquake: ‘push and pray’ CALAPE, Philippines (AP) — Eileen Rose Carabana and her mother were in their mountain village house when the 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck the central Philippine island of Bohol. Moments later, she felt an unmistakable intense pain in her abdomen — she was about to go into labor. There was no other way to get to a doctor but to hike several kilometers down a mountain to the hospital in Calape, a coastal town devastated by Tuesday’s quake that killed at least 158 people and destroyed thousands of homes and a dozen or more centuries-old churches. “I was worried for my baby because I could already feel tummy pain,” the 19-year-old recalled Thursday. When she made it to the hospital, Carabana found patients had already been evacuated to a tent outside, where a humming generator provided light for emergency procedures. As she went into labor, Carabana said she felt the ground shaking from aftershocks. “I was very scared and I prayed that I

would just have a normal delivery in spite of the tragedy,” she said. She recalled the words of the hospital staff: “Just push and pray, push and pray.” Later Tuesday night, she gave birth to a healthy, 2.4-kilogram (5.3-pound) baby named James Lyndon. Carabana was one of five young mothers who have delivered in Calape since the quake hit Bohol Island. Another expectant mother whose house was destroyed had to walk down a mountain to seek help from her relative before finding a ride to the hospital in Calape, said Meneleo Guibao, a nurse who is also the administrator of the 12-bed municipal hospital in the town. On the way, along bumpy roads torn open by the quake, the woman’s water burst, he said. The baby came out not breathing and had to be resuscitated, Guibao said. Both the mother and baby were sent to a larger hospital in the provincial capital Tagbilaran, which was better equipped for emergencies. There was no word about their condition. “Our theory is that she

was trying to stop the baby from coming out because it was difficult traveling to the hospital,” Guibao said. The three other mothers and their babies were all doing fine and two of them were about to be discharged, he said. Although not a stranger to disasters in a country that is often buffeted by typhoons, floods and shaken by quakes, Guibao said that delivering babies in a tent amid aftershocks was a first for him. “I have experience in home delivery, but I have not delivered under this calamity situation,” he said. Guibao said he worried about his patients, but was grateful for caregivers and volunteers who were aiding him and the rest of the staff. Calape Mayor Sulpicio Yu said that almost 90 percent of the buildings in his town, with a population of 32,000, were partially or totally damaged. At least five people were killed in Calape. The hospital did not collapse, Guibao said, but there was no electricity and engineers had to check the building for damage before it was declared safe again. Altogether 11 hospitals

Trial begins for Madoff associates Bodies pulled from NEW YORK (AP) — Bernard Madoff was a Wall Street rock star who charmed and deceived billionaires, celebrities, government regulators and his employees, including five of his ex-workers who are on trial for fraud, defense attorneys told a jury Thursday in opening statements. Attorney Andrew Frisch said Madoff and his former finance chief — government cooperator Frank DiPascali — were “depraved and pathological,” delivering millions of lies to disguise a fraud that cheated thousands of investors out of billions of dollars. Defense lawyers described Madoff as god-like at his firm, a former NASDAQ chairman who hid his heartless, corrupt and greedy side with extraordinary generosity. They said he was a swaggering Wall Street icon, a control freak, a great liar, a genius manipulator, extremely demanding, eccentric and temperamental, private and secretive, domineering and controlling. “Celebrities, movie stars,

Sandy Koufax. They all believed in Bernie Madoff,” said Eric Breslin, an attorney for JoAnn Crupi, 52, an account manager for Madoff for 25 years. “He literally had millionaires eating out of his hand, begging him to invest their money. … The world was taken in. The government will not be able to prove JoAnn Crupi knew any better.” He said Madoff, 75, who is serving a 150-year prison sentence, would not appear in court but “his shadow will be in this courtroom every day.” On Wednesday, a prosecutor accused the former employees of being crucial components of a fraud that remained hidden for decades, but defense lawyers insisted Madoff fooled their clients just as he did Securities and Exchange Commission inspectors and sophisticated financial experts. Frisch portrayed his client, Daniel Bonventre, as enamored by Madoff. Bonventre, 66, rose to a position of director of operations after joining the firm in the late 1960s. He

PAKSE, Laos (AP) — Rescuers in fishing boats pulled bodies from the muddy Mekong River on Thursday as officials in Laos ruled out finding survivors from a plane that crashed in stormy weather, killing 49 people from 11 countries. Backpacks, two broken airplane propellers and passports were among the debris scattered on the riverbank where the Lao Airlines turboprop plane left deep skid marks in the ground before disappearing into the water Wednesday. Thai Foreign Ministry spokesman Sek Wannamethee said search teams had recovered the bodies of 15 crash victims by the time their operations ended Thursday because of the strong current and darkness. He said they were unable to immedi-

ately identify them or their nationalities. Thailand, which lost five nationals in the crash, is deeply involved in the search, providing skilled manpower and technology that its poorer neighbor lacks. Yakao Lopangkao, director-general of Lao’s Department of Civil Aviation, who was at the crash site in Pakse in southern Laos, ruled out finding survivors. “There is no hope,” he said. “The plane appears to have crashed very hard before entering the water.” He said the plane’s fuselage had not yet been found, but was underwater and divers were trying to locate it. Some of the bodies were found by fishermen floating downstream as far as 20 kilometers (12 miles) from the crash site, he said.
