ROME CITY — A Fort Wayne man is in custody after a bizarre incident in which he allegedly stole a car, but left his own vehicle with a note either thanking God or claiming to be from God. The man was apprehended when his own dog led police to him, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. Roland Thomas Beemer, 41, of Fort Wayne was preliminarily charged with auto theft late Monday when he was booked into the Noble County Jail. Formal charges against Beemer were pending with the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office Tuesday morning.

Noble County deputies were called to a residence in the 2000 block of East Northport Road near Rome City at 5:36 p.m. Monday to investigate a stolen 2002 Chrysler Sebring. Left at the address was a 1987 Honda vehicle with a note saying, “Please Beemer forgive me, I will try and bring it home. Feel Free to use mine. Thank you God.” It was not clear Tuesday if the reference to God was intended as a signature or as a note of thanks. There was evidence of narcotics

or dangerous drugs in the Honda, police said. Upon determining the Honda belonged to Beemer, the Fort Wayne Police Department contacted his girlfriend. She reportedly said she had been in contact with him, and that he was acting “weird.” He would not tell her where he was, but said he had made a mess of things and had a dog with him. He also talked about aliens, the girlfriend reportedly said. At 9:52 p.m., police spoke to a monk residing at the Sylvan Springs complex who said Beemer had been there on foot about 30 minutes earlier. The monk gave him food and asked him to stay, but he left, heading in the direction

Health woes go on

Spooky Trail given one more night by popular demand KENDALLVILLE — Spooks will return for one more night on the Kendallville Park and Recreation Department’s Spooky Trail, and the proceeds will go the Kendallville Fireworks Fund. “Due to the overwhelming success and the positive comments received, we decided to extend the Spooky Trail one more time,” said Dawn McGahen, the park department’s recreation director and Spooky Trail coordinator. The event last Friday and Saturday nights attracted 800-900 visitors, she added. The public is welcome to visit the trail Saturday from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Those attending should park in the Kendallville Outdoor Recreation Complex, 524 S. Allen Chapel Road, and ride wagons to the trail head. Admission costs $5 for the 40- to 45-minute walk. Parking is free, and so is the wagon shuttle service. About 100 volunteers will be in costume along the trail to provide a frightful experience. Unlike the first weekend, there will not be a Family Fun Festival at the recreation complex.

of Northport Road, the police said. Police were called at 10:37 p.m. with word Beemer and the dog were back on the property behind an old Cape Cod house near the townhouses on the former Sylvan Springs property. He spoke with the residents, but left the cottages, remaining on the property. Deputies found the dog, a boxer, at 10:55 p.m. They used the dog to lead them to Beemer, who allegedly was hiding on the property. He was placed in custody at 11:02 p.m. and booked into the Noble County Jail at 11:30 p.m.


Historic steam locomotive No. 765 made two round trips between Fort Wayne and Lafayette last weekend, hauling more than 1,400 passengers and retracing the route of the famous Wabash Cannonball passenger train. The rear

cars on the train came from the New York Central Railroad’s 20th Century Limited, which operated through DeKalb County as one of the nation’s premier passenger trains.

Hundreds ride historic train FORT WAYNE (AP) — Hundreds of people from around the country have experienced what country singer Roy Acuff called “the jingle, the rumble and the roar” of a Wabash Cannonball. More than 700 people turned out over the weekend to ride

the train built in 1944 from Fort Wayne to West Lafayette. The locomotive is one of only a handful in the United States still in working condition. It was restored by the Fort Wayne Historical Railroad Museum. The train carried 22 tons of coal and 2,200 gallons of water for the

round trip to West Lafayette. Museum communication manager Kelley Lynch says the weekend trip marked the first passenger train to depart Fort Wayne in 20 years. The trip retraced the route of the famous Wabash Cannonball passenger train.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Move over, website woes. Lawmakers confronted the Obama administration Tuesday with a difficult new health care problem — a wave of cancellation notices hitting individuals and small business who buy their own insurance. At the same time, the federal official closest to the website apologized for its dysfunction in new sign-ups and asserted things are getting better by the day. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner said it’s not the administration but insurers who are responsible for cancellation letters now reaching many of the estimated 14 million people who buy individual policies. And, officials said, people who get cancellation notices will be able to find better replacement plans, in some cases for less. The Associated Press, citing the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, reported in May that many carriers would opt to cancel policies this fall and issue new ones. Administratively that was seen as easier than changing existing plans to comply with the new law, which mandates coverage of more services and provides better financial protection against catastrophic illnesses. While the administration had ample warning of the cancellations, they could become another public relations debacle for President Barack Obama’s signature legislation. This problem goes to the credibility of one of the president’s earliest promises about the health care overhaul: You can keep your plan if you like it. In the spring, state insurance commissioners started giving insurers the option of canceling existing individual plans for 2014, because the coverage required under Obama’s law is significantly more robust. Some states directed insurers to issue cancellations. Large employer plans that cover most workers and their families are unlikely to be affected. The cancellation notices are SEE HEALTH, PAGE A6

Court of Appeals says Bering trial can go on BY BOB BRALEY

ALBION — The case of a former executive director of Noble House Ministries will go to trial, the Indiana Court of Appeals has ruled. The defense attorney for Dana Linette Bering, 41, of Churubusco tried to have her case dismissed, claiming it had taken too long to prosecute her under Noble County rules. He forwarded the case to the Court of Appeals for a ruling earlier this year. The appeals court ruling said the case could proceed, according to Noble Circuit Court records.

In its ruling, the appeals court said while the county rule is designed to insure a speedy trial, it is not to be used as a technical means to avoid trial. It also ruled that Bering’s motions in the case, such as her request to have Bering Circuit Judge G. David Laur recuse himself in the case, led to the delays, so the trial could proceed. In a teleconference Oct. 21, Bering’s trial was set for Feb. 4-6, 2014, in Noble Circuit Court with

Special Judge James Heuer of Whitley Circuit Court officiating. A final pretrial conference in the case was set for Jan. 6, 2014. Bering is charged with five counts of theft and one of fraud, all Class D felonies, for offenses she allegedly committed against Noble House Ministries Inc. while she was its executive director from July 2009 to September 2010. Bering allegedly used a debit card issued to Noble House Ministries to purchase items such as a television set and racing suit, as well as to pay personal bills for her and her husband. The debit card transactions

allegedly were made without the approval or knowledge of the Noble House Ministries Board of Directors between Sept. 2, 2009, and Jan. 11, 2010. Bering is also accused of unlawfully receiving over $25,000 during her tenure as executive director, and of using a Noble House Ministries debit card to purchase $179 worth of merchandise from Wal-Mart, including 12 sets of curtains and three curtain rods. A Class D felony carries a sentencing range of six months to three years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

Man stands trial on molesting charges BY BOB BRALEY


Trine University graduate Whitney Doyle will appear on Indianapolis’ dating show “She Loves a Man in Uniform.”

Whitney Doyle to appear on dating show INDIANAPOLIS —Whitney Doyle, a Lakeland High School and Trine University graduate now living in Indianapolis, will be starring on “She Loves a Man in Uniform” Saturday in Indianapolis. The show also airs on South Bend television station, WHME, Channel 46, at 9 p.m. The dating show, produced by Indianapolis based 70WesTV, is a blind-date game show. SLAMU brings single women together with single men who wear uniforms — from NFL jerseys to moving company T-shirts — offering the real possibility of finding true love. “SLAMU was born out of the ah-ha moment young 20-somethings and sometimes late bloomer 30-somethings have when a person finally realizes its more than just looks that keeps a relationship together,” said Felicia Moodie and Tamara Stubblefield, producers of the show. Moodie partnered with fellow Notre Dame


classmate and former CIA profiler Patrick Parks, who will host the dating show special, and also recruited former Cleveland Browns running back and Notre Dame football captain Travis Thomas to be part of the show’s lineup. Doyle said she hopes appearing on the show will give her career a boost. “I moved to Indianapolis over a year ago with hopes to eventually make it into the sports media field,” said Doyle. “That has not happened yet; however, this premier very well could put me in the right direction of becoming the next Bonnie Bernstein!” Doyle is the daughter of Karen and the late Ed Doyle. She currently resides on the west side of Indianapolis and is employed as the director of leasing for Traditions at Reagan Park, a new senior living community in Avon, set to open in spring 2014. For more information about the show, visit or follow the conversation online at #SLAMU or @70WesTV.

ALBION — A Fort Wayne man’s trial on two charges of child molesting began Tuesday in Noble Superior Court I. John Aaron Barnhart, 34, of Fort Wayne and formerly of Kendallville is on trial for two counts of child molesting, a Class A felony, and one count each of two Class A misdemeanors — possession of marijuana and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The three-day trial began Tuesday with selection of 12 jurors and two alternates. Due to the number of jurors, the trial is being held in the Noble Circuit Courtroom. Barnhart allegedly molested a preteen girl in his former apartment in the 1800 block of Raleigh Avenue, Kendallville, between Jan. 10, 2011 and April 20, 2011. Barnhart also is charged with providing the same victim with marijuana on April 19, 2011, and possessing marijuana on April 28, 2011. “Things were happening in that apartment that were completely inappropriate,” said Noble County chief deputy prosecutor James Mowery in opening statements Tuesday. Jurors will hear the victim’s testimony about the alleged crimes and her feelings, Mowery said.

“She finally told a friend about this,” Mowery said. The word got around to a family member of the victim, who called police. The victim told police to look for marijuana, a marijuana pipe and bedsheets she described, Mowery said. Kendallville police found marijuana, along with a pipe and sheets that matched the victim’s description, Mowery added. “When (the victim) told us to look for something, we found it,” Mowery said. The bedsheet was tested for DNA, and the tests showed it contained DNA that scientifically matched Barnhart, Mowery said. “John Barnhart never sexually molested (the victim),” Noble County chief public defender James Abbs said in his opening statement. He said the victim’s testimony was inconsistent. Abbs said only one of 69 spots for DNA clearly matched Barnhart, and only one other possibly did, but the prosecution’s case lacks important information. “They can’t tell you when any of those materials got there,” he said. “They can’t tell you how any of those materials got there.” Barnhart admits using marijuana, but denies giving any of it to the victim and denies the molesting charges, Abbs said.

Police dog’s nose leads to two arrests BY MATT GETTS

AVILLA — A police dog’s nose led to the arrest of two Noble County residents on drug charges early Tuesday morning, Avilla Police said. Nicole A. Days, 29, of Kendallville and Curt M. Glass, 31, of Avilla were booked into the Noble County Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, possession of precursors and possession of paraphernalia. Each was held for $4,500 bond. At 4:21 a.m., Avilla Deputy Marshal Eric Lawson noticed a vehicle on the side of the roadway near a wooded area south of old S.R. 3 and S.R. 3. Lawson activated his emergency lights, and when he did so, Glass got out of the vehicle and came quickly toward him.

When Glass returned to his vehicle, Lawson said he saw Glass and Days moving about in the vehicle. Lawson deployed his K9 partner to walk around the vehicle, and the dog alerted to the presence of narcotics inside the vehicle, Lawson said. During a search of the vehicle, prescription pills and precursors associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine were located. Town Marshal Glen Wills allegedly found a hypodermic needle inside Days’ purse. Days allegedly admitted to having meth in her possession. She was transported to the jail by Noble County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Brian Walker. According to Walker, meth was found on her person by jailers. Lawson transported Glass to the jail for booking.

Howe man pleads guilty in Michigan CENTERVILLE, Mich. — Nathan Lumbard, 31, a Howe man who gained international attention after he faked his own death and fled the country to avoid prosecution, appeared in a Michigan courtroom last week and pleaded guilty to one count of breaking and entering with intent. Lumbard also entered a plea of no contest to two more charges stemming from an incident when he allegedly broke into and set fire to a Sturgis, Mich., restaurant. Lumbard jumped bail and fled to Missouri, where he faked his own death by trying to make police believe he jumped off a bridge into the Mississippi River, and then managed to flee overseas, eventually becoming an English teacher in Asia. Lumbard was discovered living in Myanmar and extradited back to the United States. In 2012, he was sentenced to a federal prison in Kentucky on charges he used a false name and committed passport fraud when he fled the country. Earlier this year, Lumbard was returned to LaGrange County, where in Circuit Court he agreed to a plead guilty to two counts of criminal recklessness for severely beating two men. The men reportedly had

stolen an ashtray, a menu and a set of salt and pepper shakers from a Michigan restaurant Lumbard or a member of his family owned. Circuit Court Judge J. Scott VanDerbeck sentenced Lumbard to six years in an Indiana prison. Lumbard’s appearance in a Michigan courtroom stemmed from multiple charges in seven pending cases. Five of those cases were dismissed in return for Lumbard agreeing to plead guilty to the charge of breaking and entering with intent, and no contest to a charge of arson and second breaking and entering with intent charge. He is considered a habitual offender in Michigan. Lumbard will be sentenced Dec. 13 in a Centerville, Mich., Circuit courtroom. He faces up to 21 years in a Michigan prison.

Some say spying has gone too far WASHINGTON (AP) — Faced with anger over revelations about U.S. spying at home and abroad, members of Congress suggested Tuesday that programs the Obama administration says are needed to combat terrorism may have gone too far. The chairman of the House intelligence committee said it might help to disclose more about National Security Agency operations but barring NSA from collecting millions of Americans’ phone records would scrap an important tool. “We can’t ask the FBI to find terrorists plotting an attack and then not provide them with the information they need,” said Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich. He spoke at the start of a hearing where top intelligence officials were testifying, including National Security Agency Director Keith Alexander. A bipartisan plan introduced Tuesday would end the NSA’s massive sweep of phone records, allowing the government to seek only records related to ongoing terror investigations. Critics both at home and abroad have derided the program as intrusive and a violation of privacy rights. The proposal comes as President Barack Obama and key lawmakers are saying it’s time to look closely at surveillance programs that have angered many Americans and now are drawing complaints from world leaders because of reports that their cellphone conversations were monitored. The White House is considering ending eavesdropping on friendly foreign leaders, a senior administration official said. The administration tried to tamp down damage Tuesday from the monthslong spying scandal — including the most recent disclosure that the National Security Agency had monitored the cellphone conversations of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. A final decision about listening in on allies has not been made, the senior official said. The White House also faces complaints at home

about the NSA collecting millions of Americans’ phone records and sweeping up Internet traffic and email. The Obama administration defends those programs as important in the fight against terrorism. Asked about the reports of eavesdropping on world leaders, Obama said in a television interview that the U.S. government is conducting “a complete review of how our intelligence operates outside the country.” Obama declined to discuss specifics or say when he learned about the spying operations. “What we’ve seen over the last several years is their capacities continue to develop and expand, and that’s why I’m initiating now a review to make sure that what they’re able to do doesn’t necessarily mean what they should be doing,” he said Monday on the new TV network Fusion. A second U.S. official said Obama did not know the NSA was monitoring Merkel’s communications until after his visit to Germany in June. The official said information about the surveillance of foreign leaders emerged in the course of the White House’s broader review of spying programs, triggered by media reports based on documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The official was not authorized to discuss the matter by name and insisted on anonymity. The White House says the United States isn’t currently listening to Merkel’s conversations and won’t do so in the future. On Tuesday, House Speaker John Boehner said there should be a thorough review of intelligence gathering, bearing in mind the responsibility to keep Americans safe from terrorism and the nation’s obligations to allies. “We have to find the right balance here,” said Boehner, R-Ohio. “And clearly, we’re imbalanced.” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, called for a “total review of all intelligence programs” following the Merkel allegations.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A lot can change in six weeks. When the Federal Reserve last met in mid-September, almost everyone expected it to start reducing the stimulus it’s given the U.S. economy to help it rebound from the Great Recession. It didn’t. The Fed pulled a surprise by deciding not to slow its $85 billion-a-month in Treasury and mortgage bond purchases. Its bond buying has been intended to keep long-term loan rates low to support the economy. And now? After a 16-day partial government shutdown and a batch of tepid economic data, no one thinks the Fed will reduce its stimulus when it meets Tuesday and Wednesday. Many analysts now predict the Fed will maintain the pace of its bond purchases into next year. Blame the uncertainty surrounding Congress’ budget fight and renewed questions about the economy’s health. “I think March is now the earliest that any reduction in bond purchases will happen,” said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial. By then, Fed members expect to have seen several months of stronger job growth. They also expect Congress to have resolved its budget impasse.

If the Fed does start slowing its stimulus in March, it will have left its policy unchanged not just this week but also at its next meeting in December and at its subsequent meeting in late January. The delay would signal a dimmer economic outlook. The January meeting will be the last for Chairman Ben Bernanke, who is stepping down after eight years. President Barack Obama has chosen Vice Chair Janet Yellen to succeed Bernanke. Assuming that Yellen is confirmed by the Senate, her first meeting as chairman will be in March. Many economists think no major policy changes will occur before a new chairman takes over. Congress’ budget fight has clouded the Fed’s timetable. Though the government reopened Oct. 17 and a threatened default on its debt was averted, Congress adopted only temporary fixes. More deadlines and possible economic disruptions lie ahead. A House-Senate conference committee is working toward a budget accord. But wide differences separate Democrats and Republicans on spending and taxes. Without a deal by Jan. 15, another shutdown is possible. Congress must also raise the government’s debt ceiling after Feb. 7. If not, a

market-rattling default will remain a threat. The standoff has led economists to trim their forecasts for economic growth in the October-December quarter. U.S. employers added just 148,000 jobs in September, a steep slowdown from August. And temporary layoffs during the shutdown are expected to depress October’s job gain. The shutdown also postponed the release of many of the government’s economic reports. The delay has made it harder for Fed officials to assess the economy. Given the uncertainties, analysts think the Fed will be cautious about paring its economic support. In June, when Bernanke suggested that the Fed could reduce its bond buying by year’s end, the Dow Jones industrial average plunged 560 points in two days. Many investors feared that the Fed might remove its support prematurely and derail an already subpar recovery from the recession. Interest rates rose, too. The increase particularly in mortgage rates, before the Fed had even begun to change policy, alarmed the central bank. Higher mortgage rates could dampen the gains in housing, which has been a rare bright spot for the economy.

HEALTH: Thousands reportedly have health insurance canceled FROM PAGE A1

now reaching policyholders, and they’ve been complaining to their lawmakers — who were grilling Tavenner on Tuesday. “Based on what little information the administration has disclosed, it turns out that more people have received cancellation notices for their health care plans this month than have enrolled in the (health care website),” said Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich. He cited a news report of 146,000 cancellations in his state alone. Up and down the dais, lawmakers chimed in with stories of constituents who had received similar notices. Republicans also offered examples of people being asked to pay more. Democrats countered by citing constituents who had been able to find lower-cost coverage for 2014 than they have now, some saving hundreds of dollars a month. Ranking Democrat Sander Levin of Michigan said one of his constituents has been paying $800 a month for a BlueCrossBlueShield plan and managed to find comparable coverage for $77, after tax credits that lower the premiums. Still, Levin added, “This has become a matter of legitimate discussion.” It could take months to sort out the balance of individual winners and losers. There’s not a central source of statistics on how many people have gotten cancellations. Even the number of people who buy insurance individually is disputed. It isn’t the administra-

tion’s fault, said Tavenner. “In fact the issuer has decided to change the plan; (they) didn’t have to.” Change is a constant in the individual insurance market, she added, and about half of plans “churn” over in any given year. Obama’s promise dates back to June of 2009, when Congress was starting to grapple with overhauling the health care system to cover uninsured Americans. “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period,” the president said in remarks to the American Medical Association. “No one will take it away, no matter what.” Some immediately saw

the promise as too broad for Obama to deliver on, given that health plans are constantly being changed by the employers that sponsor them or by insurers directly. Nonetheless, Democrats in Congress devised a complicated scheme called “grandfathering” to try to make good on Obama’s pledge. It shields plans from the law’s requirements, provided the plans themselves change very little. Insurers say it has proven impractical. Republicans were not alone in raising concerns at Tuesday’s hearing. But Democrats put their complaints in the context of addressing problems so the law can deliver its

historic promise of coverage to millions of uninsured people. “Let’s not fixate on the website, let’s fix the website,” said Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, put Tavenner on notice, saying, “The promise of affordable care can also be denied through management failure.” Tavenner delivered the most direct mea culpa yet from the administration for the technical problems that have kept many Americans from signing up through “I want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should,” she told the committee.

Russia breaks Olympic no-waste pledge AKHSHTYR, Russia (AP) — Trucks rumble to the edge of a gigantic pit filled with spray cans, tires and foam sheets and dump a stream of concrete slabs that send up a cloud of limestone dust. Other trucks pile clay on top and a bulldozer mixes everything together in a rudimentary effort to hide the mess. This landfill outside Sochi, which will host the Winter Olympics in 100 days, is smack in the middle of a water protection zone where dumping industrial waste is banned.

As a centerpiece of its Olympic bid, Russia trumpeted a “Zero Waste” program that promised the cleanest games ever, saying it would refrain from dumping construction waste and rely on reusable materials. But on a visit last week to Akhshtyr, just north of Sochi, The Associated Press found that Russia’s state-owned rail monopoly is dumping tons of construction waste into what authorities call an illegal landfill, raising concerns of possible contamination in the water that directly supplies Sochi.

The finding shows how little Russia has done to fulfill its ambitious green pledges. Its $51 billion budget for the Olympics contains no provisions for treating construction waste. In a letter obtained by the AP, the Environmental Protection Agency in the area where Sochi is located told the Black Sea resort’s environment council in late August that it had inspected the Akhshtyr landfill and found “unauthorized dumping of construction waste as well as soil

from excavation works.” The agency said it fined Russian Railways, whose Sochi project costs billions of dollars, $3,000 for the dumping. It didn’t order the dump closed. The EPA’s Sochi representative visited the site earlier this month and insisted it was being cleaned up, villagers and activists who were present at that meeting said. The agency was unavailable for comment this week. The main health concern surrounding the landfill is to the water supply.

Shane Battier went 4 for 4 from 3-point range, including a critical one from the right corner with 1:33 remaining, and the Heat wasted most of what was a 25-point lead before holding off Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls 107-95 on Tuesday night in the seasonopener for both teams. LeBron James scored 17 points for Miami, which got its 2013 NBA championship rings in a pregame ceremony. The Heat trailed 9-2 early, then outscored Chicago 52-24 over the remainder of the first half. Rose finished with 12 points in 34 minutes in his first game since a serious knee injury in April 2012.

Pacers win season opener INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George scored 24 points, and Roy Hibbert added 16 rebounds and seven blocks, leading the Indiana Pacers to a 97-87 victory over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night. The two-man tandem looked every bit as dominant in the season opener as they did leading the Pacers (1-0) to the Eastern Conference finals last season. George’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter gave Indiana a 69-64 lead and sparked the decisive 17-4 run to open the fourth. Hibbert nearly matched his career-high for rebounds (17) in the first half. He had eight points but left the game midway through the fourth quarter after injuring his knee in a spill underneath his own basket. Team officials said it was not serious and he could have returned. But it was George’s 3 that provided the spark Indiana needed to seize control. Victor Oladipo, the ex-Hoosiers star and No. 2 overall draft pick, had 12 points and three turnovers for the Magic (0-1). Fans gave Oladipo a warm reception in his return to his adopted home state. More than 90 minutes before tipoff, one section near the court was almost full of

fans decked out in Indiana University colors or fans wearing new Magic jerseys. And though Oladipo didn’t start Tuesday night, the crowd gave him a rousing standing ovation when he first entered the game midway through the first quarter. For the Pacers, it was a ragged start to a big season. Indiana committed 20 turnovers and struggled to take control against a team that had the worst record in the league last season. Eventually, though, the Pacers’ rebuilt bench turned the game. Ronnie Price’s 12-foot jumper with 6.1 seconds left in the third trimmed the Pacers’ lead to 65-64. But Orlando was whistled for delay of game, David West made the free throw and George hit the 3 to close out the third. The backups took the cue, scoring the first 15 Indiana points in the fourth to make it 84-68. Orlando never challenged again. Lance Stephenson finished with 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists for the Pacers. The Magic were led by Andrew Nicholson, who scored all 18 of his points in the first half. Maurice Harkless added 14 and Jameer Nelson had 12 as the Magic shot 38.7 percent from the field.

Westview falls in 2A regional BY JAMES FISHER

EMMA — Woodlan volleyball coach Lindsay Roth knew if her team was going to stay alive for the next round of the IHSAA tournament, her team had a fight on its hands. She knew the Westview Warriors would make certain of that. “Both teams came out fighting, we knew coming into their house it would be tough,” Roth said. “At this level, there are no slouch teams left in the tournament.” Woodlan (25-7) fought and clawed its way to a 26-24, 22-25, 25-23, 25-20 victory over Westview in Tuesday’s regional match and moves on to face Southport (26-10) in Saturday’s semistate, which will be held in Bremen. “Last week we played Adam Central, it was a dogfight too and helped us prepare for this,” Roth said. “Westview is good and a team that’s going to fight back.” Westview closes the season at

25-10. The squad was making an appearance in regionals for the second straight season. “It makes our program feel like we’re building,” said Westview coach Heidi Brohm. Breann Bushong had 12 kills, five blocks and two aces for Westview. The Warriors also got 12 kills from Maria McCoy and 36 assists from Makai Gingerich. Rachel Johns contributed 22 digs and seven kills, with 14 digs and two aces from Lexi Hostetler. Westview is still a young team and loses just two seniors to graduation, Johns and Bushong. “It’s very devastating for them,” Brohm said of the loss. “But we have five sophomores that played this season.” Woodlan’s Tori Bontrager was a handful for Westview on Tuesday. The senior finished with 38 kills and 12 digs. Woodlan also got 20 kills and 28 digs from Burgundy Price and 59 assists from Brooke Gerbers. The opening set was deadlocked at 24-all when


Westview’s Miranda Kresse (5) and Breann Bushong go to the net for a block during Tuesday’s regional match.

Bontrager and Price came through with kills as Woodlan won 26-24. “That first game was big for us, because sometimes we start bad,” Bontrager said. Westview led 18-6 in Game

2, only to see Woodlan reel off a 12-0 run to tie the contest at 18-all. “We do that, we’ll get down and come back,” Bontrager said. SEE WESTVIEW, PAGE B2

Golson used ‘poor judgment’ Hawks win SOUTH BEND (AP) — Suspended Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson said he used “poor judgment on a test,” which is what got him suspended for the fall semester. “It wasn’t due to poor grades or anything like that,” he told Sports Illustrated in a video posted by the magazine. Asked directly if he cheated on a test, Golson said: “Yeeeeeeeaaaahhh, something like that.” “Like I said, I’m just going to leave it at poor judgment,” he told the magazine. Asked again if it was cheating on a test, Golson responded: “Test situation.” Golson had previously said only that he was suspended for using poor academic judgment without specifying the context.

CHICAGO (AP) — Jonathan Toews had three goals and an assist, Corey Crawford made 14 saves in relief of an ineffective Nikolai Khabibulin and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Ottawa Senators 6-5 on Tuesday night. Andrew Shaw scored twice and Marian Hossa had a goal and two assists for the Blackhawks, who trailed 4-2 with 8:46 left in the second period. It was Hossa’s 100th goal with Chicago and No. 439 for his career. The Senators scored three times in a span of four shots in the second, but were unable to hold off the suddenly high-scoring Blackhawks. Kyle Turris and Milan Michalek each had a goal and an assist in Ottawa’s fourth loss in five games. Toews sparked Chicago’s rally when he tested Craig Anderson with 5½ minutes left in the second, and his first attempt popped over the goal. The captain then skated to the back of the net and slammed in a wraparound for his fifth goal of the season. The Blackhawks kept coming in the third period, and Toews tied it at 4 when he finished off a perfect pass from Johnny Oduya at 1:20. He completed his third career hat trick when he pushed a rebound into an empty net midway through the period for a 5-4 Chicago lead.




Red Sox look to win Series title at Fenway BOSTON (AP) — Generations of New Englanders are preparing. Practically no one alive can remember seeing such an event unfold: The Boston Red Sox could win a World Series title on the celebrated green grass at Fenway Park. Ted Williams never did it. Not Carl Yastrzemski. Not Carlton Fisk. Not even Pedro Martinez and Curt Schilling, who ended The Curse nearly a decade ago but did it on the road. When the Red Sox last won a World Series at home, Babe Ruth, Carl Mays and Harry Hooper were the stars in September 1918, a season cut short by World War I. Ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2, the Red Sox have two chances to reward their faithful. “It would be awesome,” said John Lackey, who starts Game 6 on Wednesday night against Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha. Fenway was just a kid the last time the Red Sox won a title at home, a modern 6-yearold ballpark. A crowd of 15,238 watched the Red Sox defeat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 to win the Series in six games. “It was a ball game that nobody who was present will forget. It left too many lasting impressions,” Edward F. Martin wrote the following day in the Boston Globe. That was so long ago that Woodrow Wilson was president of the United States, television hadn’t been invented and the designated hitter didn’t exist. There were 16 major league teams — none west of St. Louis — all games were played in the daytime and the NFL was 23 months from formation. Now, Fenway Park is a centurion, the oldest home in the majors and listed on the National

Register of Historic Places. The last time a World Series Game 6 was played between Lansdowne and Van Ness Streets was in 1975, the night Fisk sent Pat Darcy’s second pitch of the 12th inning high down the left-field line and waved his arms three times, urging the ball fair, before it clanked off the yellow foul pole atop the Green Monster. “I was just wishing and hoping,” Fisk recalled in 2005. “Maybe by doing it, you know, you ask something of somebody with a higher power. I like to think that if I didn’t wave, it would have gone foul.” Boston needed that 7-6 win to force a seventh game against Cincinnati, and the Red Sox went

WESTVIEW: Hometown Warriors showed composure

DALLAS (AP) — Gersson Rosas resigned as general manager of the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday, just three months into his new job. Rosas was hired Aug. 1 to fill a position that had been vacant since former coach and GM Don Nelson left the franchise eight years ago. Most of those duties fell to Nelson’s son, Donnie,

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina won his sixth straight Gold Glove award Tuesday, making him one of four players in the World Series rewarded for superior defense this season. Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia and right fielder Shane Victorino also were honored, along with Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright. Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado became the 10th rookie to win a Gold Glove and first since Seattle outfielder Ichiro Suzuki in 2001. Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons and Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado also were among the eight first-time recipients. “It’s pretty awesome,” Simmons said in a brief

A dugout box seat was available for $10,894.20. “I don’t know what happened in 1918, but tomorrow we’re going to try and make it happen, make people proud and happy in the city of Boston and New England,” David Ortiz said. “I guarantee it’s going to be wild.” Ortiz’s performance in the World Series has been better than Ruthian. He’s batting .733 (11 for 15) with two homers, six RBIs, four walks and a sacrifice fly, and has one-third of Boston’s hits.

the president of basketball operations. Dallas owner Mark Cuban asked the younger Nelson to find an addition for the front office with stronger organizational skills, and Nelson came back with Rosas, who had been an assistant to general manager Daryl Morey in Houston. The 35-year-old Rosas,

who reported to Nelson, said in a statement issued by the team that the job “was not the best fit for me at this point in my career.” “The decision was made solely by me, as I firmly believe this change is in my best interest,” Rosas said. “Mark Cuban asked me to reconsider my decision, but graciously accepted my decision and we part as

friends.” Rosas, a native of Colombia, spent nine years with the Rockets, rising from an intern to vice president of basketball operations. He played a role in shaping the roster for a Houston franchise that beat out the Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers and Atlanta in the pursuit of free agent center Dwight Howard.

on to lose the following night. Now, they are one win from setting off a Boston Glee Party. “With no disrespect to history or to Carlton, you know, it’s an iconic video and a highlight that is shown repeatedly, and one of the more memorable swings that probably has taken place in this ballpark,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday, “but hopefully there’s somebody tomorrow night that can wave their arms just the same.” Boston swept the Series in 2004 and ‘07, starting at home and winning titles at St. Louis and Colorado. Given the length of time since the last championship clincher at Fenway, there is a seemingly insatiable demand for

“We knew it would be tough.” Westview followed with a Grace Hales kill, then got a block and tip from Gingerich for a 21-18 margin. Up 24-22 in the late going, Johns came through with a big kill as the Warriors won 25-22. Westview led just once in Game 3, that at 1-0. But the Warriors stayed close and the contest was tied five times, the last at 17-17. Later in the third set Woodlan’s lead was 23-22 when Bontrager came through with two kills to give her squad a 25-23 win. Game 4 was tied 10 times, the last at 20-all. From there, Price had three kills, while Bontrager came through with an ace and a kill to give Woodlan the win. “We wanted the win, we knew it could be the last game we played together,” Bontrager said. Brohm loved her team’s composure during the match, even though Westview lost. “We’re very good about staying even-keeled and we don’t get rattled,” she said. “We just made some errors and they made some key kills.”

scheduled to start Game 6 of baseball’s World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals on today in Boston.

“That’s why we call him ‘Cooperstown,’” Game 5 star David Ross said, “because he does Hall of Fame stuff.” While the Red Sox went through a light workout at Fenway Park on a cool autumn afternoon, the Cardinals tried to maintain their cool as they got stuck in St. Louis, joined by their families on a charter flight delayed several hours by mechanical difficulties. “Fortunately we have plenty of food, snacks for the kids, lots of entertainment with on-board movies, and everybody travels with all their high-tech stuff,” manager Mike Matheny said. “Most of these kids are pretty happy that they’re not in school right now, and it’s a great way to spend a day.” Farrell made a bit of news, saying Ross will get his fourth Series start behind the plate in place of slumping Jarrod Saltalamacchia. “David has given us a spark offensively out of the position,” the manager said. Shane Victorino is expected to return to right field after missing two games due to a bad back, and Game 4 star Jonny Gomes will start in left over Daniel Nava. With the shift back to the American League ballpark, Mike Napoli returns to first base and Ortiz to designated hitter. Playing with a foot injury, Allen Craig will be the DH for St. Louis. Trying for their second title in three seasons, the Cardinals have high confidence in Wacha, a 22-year-old rookie who has won all four of his postseason starts, allowing three earned runs in 27 innings. “I imagine it’s going to be crazy, but I’m not going to pay any attention to it,” Wacha said.

interview on ESPN during the awards show. The Orioles and Royals had three winners apiece, tied for the most of any team. Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon won his third in a row, while first baseman Eric Hosmer and catcher Salvador Perez each received their first. “I’ve got a trophy case back in Lincoln, (Neb.), so this one won’t be the chip-and-dip tray. This one will actually go up in the trophy case,” Gordon said. “It means a lot. The first one was pretty special, just because it’s the first one, but to be able to share it with two teammates makes this one the best one of all.” Baltimore shortstop J.J. Hardy and center fielder Adam Jones were repeat winners, as was Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez.

FORT WAYNE — Former Baer Field Speedway promoter Tom Isch died at his home on Tuesday morning at the age of 74. A release from the racetrack stated that Isch had been in declining health for over a year. He managed Baer Field for 20 season before stepping down as promoter in 2012. He was the promoter for the old Avilla Motor Speedway for a couple of years in the mid-1990s. Isch will be inducted into Baer Field Speedway’s Hall of Fame on May 10, which will be the opening night of the 2014 season.

College Volleyball Trine wins at Albion ALBION, Mich. — Trine University continued to keep its postseason hopes alive with a victory over Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association rival Albion at Kresge Gym Tuesday night. The scores were 25-22, 25-18, 19-25, 25-19. The Thunder (15-14 overall) are in a three-way tie for fourth place and the final spot in the MIAA Tournament with Saint Mary’s and Kalamazoo at 7-8. They are all a match behind third-place Alma. Trine went 2-0 against the Belles and the Hornets this season. The Thunder will host Alma on the final night of conference play Friday while Saint Mary’s hosts Adrian (11-16, 4-11 MIAA) and Kalamazoo travels to NCAA Division III secondranked Calvin. On Tuesday in Albion, Taylor Rabel had 19 kills and Carlee Felber had 26 digs and three aces to lead Trine. Carly Searles had 40 assists and 15 digs. Lauren Verkamp added 13 digs for the Thunder, and Olivia Deck had two solo blocks and two block assists. Laura Hartman chipped in with nine kills. The Britons are 6-22, 1-14. Searles was named MIAA Specialty Player of the Week for last week’s efforts. The junior setter from Levering, Mich., had 108 assists, 33 digs, seven blocks and four aces to help Trine go 3-0 last week.

Searles was named MIAA Player of the Week in volleyball for the second time in her college career and those honors have both come during this season.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Tigers’ Cabrera has surgery DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera underwent muscle repair surgery Tuesday and the Detroit slugger is expected to be ready for spring training. The Tigers revealed after the season that Cabrera had been limited down the stretch by a tear in his groin. He still hit .348 with 44 home runs and 137 RBIs during the season. Cabrera batted .262 with two home runs in 11 postseason games before Detroit lost to Boston in the AL championship series. The operation was performed by Dr. Bill Meyers in Philadelphia and the team said Monday that it was successful. Cabrera faces 6-8 weeks of rehabilitation.

Patriots trade for Sopoaga PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The New England Patriots acquired nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga from the Philadelphia Eagles along with a sixth-round pick in 2014 for a fifth-rounder next year. Sopoaga, who spent his first nine seasons with San Francisco, had signed an $11 million, three-year deal as a free agent. He played eight games and 18 tackles. The 32-yar-old Sopoaga helps replace Pro Bowl nose tackle Vince Wilfork, who is out for the season. The Patriots have allowed 157 yards rushing per game since Wilfork was injured. Rookie third-round pick Bennie Logan, veteran Clifton Geathers and rookie Damion Square will get more playing time with the Eagles now that Sopoaga is gone.

Mississippi guard suspended OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi’s Marshall Henderson has been suspended three regular-season games this season, including the first two Southeastern Conference games. The school announced the suspension on Tuesday morning. The 6-foot-2 guard — whose boisterous antics turned him into one of college basketball’s biggest villains — scored more than 20 points per game last season, but was indefinitely suspended in July after police found him with small amounts of marijuana and cocaine during a traffic stop. Henderson was not arrested. Henderson will miss the season opener against Troy on Nov. 8 and SEC games against Auburn (Jan. 9) and Mississippi State (Jan. 11). He will also miss the team’s exhibition game on Friday night. Henderson has had both on-and off-thecourt issues at Ole Miss. The school said in a statement that Henderson’s suspension is a result of his “conduct during the 2012-13 season, SEC and NCAA Tournaments, and his behavior since the end of the season.” “I want to thank Coach (Andy) Kennedy, (athletic director) Ross Bjork and the university for giving me an opportunity to rejoin the team,” Henderson said in Tuesday’s statement. “This has been a difficult time for me, and I appreciate this chance. My teammates and I are looking forward to defending our SEC Championship.” Henderson has been allowed to practice with the team during the preseason. He helped the Rebels advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002.

Judge to decide later on Paterno family lawsuit BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania judge said Tuesday he would decide later whether to allow a lawsuit against the NCAA filed by the family of longtime Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and others to go forward. After hearing more than three hours of arguments, Judge John B. Leete said he planned to issue a written opinion but did not say when. A lawyer for college sports’ governing body urged him to throw out the complaint. The lawsuit and the court are “a poor forum for the venting of frustration, and the NCAA should not be made the scapegoat for the errors and omissions of university officials,” NCAA lawyer Everett Johnson said. Leete is considering a host of issues, including whether Penn State itself is an indispensable party to the lawsuit, which challenges the NCAA penalties imposed on Penn State as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child-molestation scandal. The Paterno family — joined by four university trustees, four faculty members, nine former players and two former coaches — allege breach of contract, contract interference, defamation, civil conspiracy and commercial disparagement. A lawyer for the plaintiffs, Joseph Loveland, called the sanctions “coercion and a cram-down of the highest order.” He said his clients wanted to compare the Penn State matter with how the NCAA has handled other cases. “The truth of the matter is they were acting completely in uncharted waters with nothing whatsoever to support them on it,” Loveland said. The court session was held a day after Penn State announced $59.7 million in settlements with 26 young men over claims of abuse by Sandusky, who was the school’s longtime defensive coach. He was convicted last year of 45 counts of child sexual abuse and is serving a lengthy state prison sentence. Paterno’s estate and family and the other plaintiffs filed the lawsuit in May, saying the NCAA had no authority to impose sanctions based on criminal matters that were not related to the sports it oversees.







Seek and ye shall seek again I kind of caught the little bugger. It was bedtime and the 10-year-old girl could not find her glasses. I was almost gleeful. I was not gleeful because we had to go back downstairs to search for her spectacles when she should have been in bed. But I was happy that she showed a little crack in her formidable organizational armor. The girl knows where everything of hers is. Glasses (generally). School books. Assignments. Pajamas. Toys. Shoes. Coat. It’s like she’s got a tiny Rolodex in her mind she can MATT flip to at will.

This cloud follows me until I actually do misplace something only to find it. Despite this foreboding, I fight it best I can. I try to be more organized. There is a specific place for my car keys at the house. I have every intention of putting them there every time. And then I don’t. I try to kid myself into thinking it’s because I am thinking big thoughts, that my mind is so full of altruistic, world-changing views that there simply isn’t room for remembering where I put my essentials. Those who are faithful readers of this space know that simply isn’t true. The 13-year-old boy and I are lost, searching kindred spirits. There have been times the boy has been looking for a misplaced item so long that he forgets what it was he was looking for in the first place. The surprise isn’t when he’s lost something, it’s when he knows where it is. A good portion of my days are spent helping him find something. And this is fine. I get it. I can commiserate totally with the phenomenon. I’m always telling him, “Try to remember the last time you had it.” He always responds, “If I knew that, I would know where it is.” Hard to argue with logic like that. It would help if he was as good a ‘looker’ as he is a ‘misplacer.’ Apparently, this is a learned skill. And if he has ever had this skill, he has misplaced it. Then there’s the girl. Not only must she contend with the brutish, smell-challenged nature of the males in her household, but she finds herself alone on an island, an island where everything has a place and is actually in its place. The poor thing is surrounded by a sea of chaos. Perhaps it’s good that she learn early on how difficult boys can be. This is a lesson I plan on reinforcing and reinforcing and reinforcing until she is 30 and eligible to date. But at least this one time, she had forgotten something. It gave me hope. If she can lose something, then maybe a day will come when the boy and I don’t. Until then, I see a lot of looking in my future. And in the boy’s. Sigh.

If premiums rise, many will drop coverage, leading to increasingly higher premiums, and even more dropping coverage.

The website will slowly get better, but not good enough this year to save the program. Very late in the game, the president will suspend the individual mandate penalty, which is probably strictly beyond his powers, but few will complain. Insurance rates increases will hit many (mostly the middle class), very hard. There will be a huge push to enroll more young healthy folks into the plan. The most optimistic vision for the plan is that success will be mixed. Failure is an option.

What Others Say • Close the gap, serve all students Anyone questioning why the South Bend school board felt the need to create the position of director of African-American student/parent services might find a partial answer in the ISTEP scores. Overall, scores have gone up for South Bend Community School Corp. students. But the achievement gap between white and black students persists: Eighty percent of white students in grades three through eight pass both parts of the exam, compared with 55

percent of black students (and 60 percent of Hispanic students). South Bend is hardly alone in this struggle. Since the 1970s, the National Assessment of Educational Progress has measured basic reading and mathematics skills to gauge how the performance of U.S. students has changed over time. In its report card for 2012, while noting improvement in scores among black and Hispanic students, the NAEP says score gaps between white students and other racial/ ethnic groups persist, although those gaps are generally smaller

than they were four decades ago. The SBCSC’s new position was created more directly in response to other issues, including the overidentifying of black students with cognitive and emotional disabilities, for which the corporation was cited by the state. But the stated goals of the position, which include supporting academic, social and parent programs focused on black students, surely aligns with any effort to close the achievement gap. We don’t know if this initiative, which has been criticized by

some as unnecessary or racially polarizing, will be successful. But we expect school officials to develop a way to measure its effectiveness. Focusing on issues that negatively affect African-American students, the largest minority in the corporation at 34 percent, shouldn’t mean other groups will be shortchanged. And looking for ways to close the distance between black and white student achievement doesn’t serve one group. It raises the level of success for all. And that benefits every one of us.

Couple sentenced in abuse, death of adopted daughter MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — A Washington couple accused of starving, beating and forcing their adopted daughter outside as punishment were sentenced Tuesday to decades in prison for her death. Larry and Carri Williams were convicted Sept. 9 of manslaughter in the death of a teenage girl they adopted from Ethiopia. Carri Williams was also found guilty of homicide by abuse. Hana Williams was found dead May 12, 2011. The autopsy said she died of hypothermia, with malnutrition and a stomach condition as contributing factors. Carri Williams was sentenced Tuesday to just under 37 years, the top of the standard sentencing range, by a judge who said she probably deserved more time in prison, the Skagit Valley Herald reported. Her husband received a sentence of nearly 28 years.

People • Blackburn says changing shows was ‘bittersweet’ NEW YORK (AP) — Tyler Blackburn says it was bittersweet to leave ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” to star in the supernatural spinoff, “Ravenswood,” which premiered last week. “That show has been so wonderful. It’s changed my life. I’ve gotten close with the cast Blackburn and I’ve had so much fun doing it, and so bittersweet is the perfect way to describe it,” Blackburn said in a recent interview. “Ravenswood” airs Tuesdays (8 p.m. Eastern). The show premiered after the annual Halloween-themed special episode of “Pretty Little Liars,” which returns for its new season next year. Blackburn plays Caleb Rivers, one of five teens whose lives are intertwined by a deadly curse that’s plagued Ravenswood for generations. Caleb arrived in Ravenswood to meet his “PLL” girlfriend, Hanna, who encouraged him to stay and help a new friend.


Panel says A-F system should reflect progress

Israel high court clears way for prisoner release JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s Supreme Court cleared the way for the release of 26 Palestinian prisoners on Tuesday, the second of four batches set to be freed as part of a deal that set in motion the current Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The decision to release the 26 has triggered anguish and anger in Israel, where many view the men as terrorists who have committed grisly crimes against Israelis. But jubilant celebrations are expected in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, where the prisoners are set to be received by their families and Palestinian leaders. The release is expected to take place overnight. The court appeal claimed that in light of a recent spate of deadly attacks on Israelis in the West Bank, the government should review the decision it made earlier this year to release the convicts. The Supreme Court rejected that claim and ruled that there was no legal basis to cancel the release. An organization of bereaved families behind the appeal has said it fears the prisoners, all convicted in connection to the deaths of Israelis, will return to violence once freed.

Plastic pollution fills Great Lakes TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — An organization representing more than 100 cities in the U.S. and Canada asked federal and industry officials Tuesday for action on the recently discovered problem of “microplastic” pollution in the Great Lakes. Over the past two years, scientists have reported finding thousands of plastic bits — some visible only under a microscope — in the lakes that make up nearly one-fifth of the world’s fresh surface water. Large masses of floating plastics also have been detected in the world’s oceans. Scientists believe some are abrasive “microbeads” used in personal care products such as facial and body washes, deodorants and toothpaste. They’re so minuscule that they flow through screens at waste treatment plants and wind up in the lakes, where fish and aquatic birds might eat them, mistaking them for fish eggs. They also could absorb toxins. “Even though you cannot see them, they pose a very real threat to human and wildlife health,” said John Dickert, mayor of Racine, Wis., and secretary-treasurer of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative. The group sent letters to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and its counterpart, Environment Canada, asking what

s KPC Today’s

they plan to do about the problem. David Ullrich, the organization’s executive director, acknowledged it could take years to develop a regulatory crackdown on microplastics. In the meantime, his group is sending letters to 11 companies that use microplastics, asking them to switch to biodegradable alternatives. Some are doing so. Procter & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson have said they’ll phase out microbeads, and L’Oreal says it won’t develop new products that include them. “We think it makes more sense to appeal directly to the people involved and say, ‘Let’s work together and try to solve the problem; let’s do the right thing,’” Ullrich said. Additionally, the group is encouraging mayors in the eight states and two Canadian provinces adjoining the lakes to urge residents to buy products without microbeads. “We’re not calling for a boycott, but we’re asking citizens to inform themselves,” Ullrich said. Scientists led by chemist Sherri Mason of State University of New York at Fredonia and the 5 Gyres Institute, a nonprofit group based in California, took samples from all five Great Lakes in 2012 and again this year by skimming the surfaces with trawl nets attached to vessels.

would replace local testing at those levels. Ritz and Yager are expected to present the recommendations on Nov. 8 to the State Board of Education, which is expected to consider adopting a new A-F grading model next month. The fate of the changes is unclear as Ritz, a Democrat, has been at odds with the Republican-dominated board. Ritz filed a lawsuit last week over the board’s request to top GOP lawmakers that legislative analysts calculate the new A-F grades instead of her department. Bennett, a Republican, resigned as Florida’s schools chief in August after The Associated Press published emails showing he altered Indiana’s school grading system last year after a charter school founded by a top GOP donor received a low grade. That school, which Bennett routinely cited as a top-performer, received an A under the revised formula. Other schools also saw improvements. Advisory committee member Cheryl Ramsey, principal at Beveridge Elementary School in Gary, said the panel focused on making the grading system, which has given her school an F several years in a row, more equitable. “We’ll be able to explain to teachers, to parents, all stakeholders what we have to do to change our score,” she said. The Republican-controlled Legislature ordered the state board to devise a new A-F system in April, after complaints from parents, teachers and school officials.





Working smoke alarm increases fire survival DEAR ABBY: I am a fire officer who has seen too many families experience accidental home fires, many with fatal results. It is devastating to find out that a life could have been saved had someone taken the simple precaution of replacing a dead battery in a smoke alarm. In a recent survey, more than 50 percent of the respondents admitted to removing the batteries in their smoke detector, leaving them inoperable. A working smoke alarm in your home greatly increases your chance of surviving a home fire, but only if it is functional. Please remind your readers to change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when they turn their clocks back to standard time on Nov. 3. On average, home fires kill seven people every day. No one should be




METCALF, PRESIDENT, IAFC DEAR OFFICER METCALF: I hope my readers will take your letter to heart as I have, and buy those replacement batteries TODAY if they haven’t already. Yes, I know tomorrow is Halloween — but as distracting as the holiday may be, your family’s safety is more important. If you’re buying candy, grab some batteries. On Saturday night you’ll be turning your clocks back an hour. Before you do, be sure you insert fresh batteries in your smoke detectors and test the alarms. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

On this date Oct. 30: • In 1938, the radio play “The War of the Worlds,” starring Orson Welles, aired on CBS. (The live drama, which employed fake breaking news reports, panicked some listeners who thought the portrayal of a Martian invasion was real.) • In 1972, 45 people were killed when an Illinois Central Gulf commuter train was struck from behind by another train in Chicago’s South Side.


Simple maneuver helps relieve vertigo changes when your body is in different positions. When the fluid moves the hairs, nerve signals are sent to the brain. Those signals get translated in a way that lets you know what position your body is in. BPPV occurs when tiny calcium crystals ASK form in the DOCTOR K. inner ear and become dislodged. ey bang Dr. Anthony Th around the and Komaroff canals touch the sensitive nerve endings inside. The brain starts to get conflicting signals. You experience this as a sensation of your body moving around in the world (or the world

spinning around your body). If you have BPPV, simply looking up or rolling over in bed can dislodge crystals and cause brief bouts of extreme dizziness. Vertigo can feel like the room is spinning or as though you are spinning in the room. It can be just a sense of imbalance. It also can cause nausea, vomiting and ringing in the ears. One treatment for BPPV is the Epley maneuver. In this maneuver, a doctor or physical therapist moves your head and body through a series of positions. You can also learn to do it yourself. You begin by lying on an examination table. The therapist gently moves your head to the left and right, then has you roll over and sit up. Each position moves the loose crystals through the ear canal, repositioning them to relieve symptoms. Your symptoms may improve in as little as 10 minutes. Your

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: I suffer from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. I’ve heard that something called the Epley maneuver may help. Could you explain what this is? DEAR READER: Vertigo is the sensation that either your body or your environment is moving, usually spinning. Vertigo can be a symptom of many different illnesses and disorders. The type of vertigo you have — benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) — is the most common form. As you’ve probably experienced, simply changing the position of your head can cause a sudden spinning sensation. Inside the ear are three tiny canals that help us recognize the position of our body in space and maintain balance. Inside the canals is fluid and tiny hairs attached to nerve endings. The way the fluid washes against the hairs

injured or lose a life because of a non-working smoke detector. This is the 26th year the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and Energizer have collaborated on the Change DEAR Your Clock, ABBY Change Your Battery Program. What may Jeanne Phillips seem like a tedious task can be lifesaving. A working smoke alarm can give families precious extra seconds to get out safely. If you help me circulate this important safety reminder, together we can make a difference and save some lives. — WILLIAM R.

doctor also may provide specific exercises for you to continue at home. For more persistent vertigo, your doctor may recommend something called balance rehabilitation. The types of exercises prescribed will depend upon what movements provoke your symptoms. The Epley maneuver, and several similar exercises, have given relief to many people with BPPV. Before these maneuvers were discovered, the vertigo would ultimately go away on its own, but it could take weeks. These maneuvers speed the improvement — from weeks to minutes. Unfortunately, attacks of vertigo do often return, but the maneuvers help drive them away. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Blackface never OK for costume


Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has shaken up Congress and in some ways the country with his brand of libertarian populism, filibustering President Barack Obama’s CIA

director earlier this year and leading the fight against authorizing U.S. military action in Syria.

Paul making mark in foreign policy WASHINGTON (AP) — Henry Clay. Henry Cabot Lodge. Robert Taft. William Fulbright. Jesse Helms. Is Rand Paul the next generation-defining senator on American foreign policy? In just half a term, the Kentucky Republican has shaken up Congress and in some ways the country with his brand of libertarian populism, filibustering President Barack Obama’s CIA director earlier this year and leading the fight against authorizing U.S. military action in Syria. Even in some of his defeats, Paul has been vindicated. The Obama administration’s decision this month to suspend much of its $1.5 billion annual assistance package to Egypt is a course Paul unsuccessfully championed only 10 weeks earlier. “It’s presumptuous to

say you’re driving the debate,” Paul said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. Still, he suggested his proximity to voters gives him a better understanding of what Americans are looking for right now in their government’s foreign policy. “I think people are always ahead of their legislature, maybe 10 years or so,” he said. “Let’s say you’re elected for the first time in 1978. That is still who is electing you every time, the people who elected you then, because you perceive that as that was your big hard race and you won. And you still perceive you’re representing those people from 1978. … But you’re not really familiar with the wants and desires of 2013, because you still represent then.” For a freshman senator

with presidential ambitions, Paul has racked up an impressive list of public relations coups despite few legislative victories. His 13-hour filibuster failed to prevent John Brennan’s confirmation to lead the CIA in March, but it shined a light on some of the unsavory elements of Obama’s drone attacks on U.S. terrorism targets overseas — including the deaths of four American citizens. The filibuster helped spark a nationwide conversation. Two months later, Obama revamped his drone policy to set tougher standards for when the U.S. can target and kill al-Qaida or other terrorists who pose “a continuing, imminent threat” to Americans. Syria was a similar case. After a large-scale chemical weapons attack in August killed hundreds outside

Damascus, Obama asked Congress to approve a limited U.S. military intervention against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government. Paul rejected the administration’s case that intervening was in America’s national interest. He lost as the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 10-7 in favor of authorization, but ultimately won the argument as public opposition and skittishness among members of both parties in Congress prompted Obama to drop his effort and seek a diplomatic solution. Egypt represents perhaps the most dramatic reversal. In July, Paul was resoundingly defeated by an 86-13 vote when he proposed stripping the Egyptian military of the annual U.S. aid package it has enjoyed since the 1979 Camp David Accords with Israel.

there,” she said. “It doesn’t matter that it was a character from a TV show. That doesn’t get her off the hook. If she’s going to put some substance on her face, that constitutes blackface and this incredibly complicated history gets evoked.” Historically, blackface emerged in the mid-19th century, representing a combination of put-down, fear and morbid fascination with black culture, said Eric Lott, an American studies professor at City University of New York’s graduate center. Among the most prominent examples: Al Jolson and Eddie Cantor. “It’s constantly a form of entertainment that backs itself into all kinds of trouble, whether political trouble around slavery or a kind of mental trouble having to do with fantasizing about black people,” said Lott, who wrote the 1993 book “Love & Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy & the American Working Class.” As for Hough, he said: “It’s just a stupid thing to do. It’s a racist thing to do. What blackface does is give the white people privilege of representing black people, of taking black images and treating them as a thing owned.” Kelsey Crowe, who teaches social work in San Francisco, has been following the fracas on Facebook. She sees more tribute to Crazy Eyes than hatred in Hough’s costume. Other recent examples are far more troubling, she said. “Trayvon Martin, that’s awful,” Crowe said of two Florida men whose photo circulated on social media ahead of Halloween on Thursday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Is donning blackface to dress up as a favorite TV character ever OK for Halloween? How about a bloody hoodie and blackface for a costume riff on the slain teen Trayvon Martin, or full-on minstrel at a splashy Africa-themed party for the fashion elite in Milan? Each of those costumes made headlines this Halloween season. And the answer to each, African studies and culture experts said, is never. “The painful history of minstrelsy is not that long ago for us to think that now, somehow, we can do it differently or do it better,” said Yaba Blay, co-director of Africana Studies at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Julianne Hough found that out the hard way. She apologized on Twitter over the weekend amid criticism for darkening her skin for a costume as Crazy Eyes from “Orange is the New Black” at a Hollywood bash. Hough explained on Twitter: “I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.” There’s a fine line between mockery and tribute — and it’s a line that blackface has the power to obliterate, said Marita Sturken, professor of media, culture and communication at New York University. “It’s never something very simple, and if you’re going to don a costume and put on a black face there’s no possibility of nuance
