GOOD MORNING Black bear breaks into Idaho kitchen KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — A black bear in search of a late-night snack broke into an Idaho house and licked leftover Chinese food from a cast iron pan on the stove. David Edwards of Ketchum told the Idaho Mountain Express that his dog’s barking awakened him around 3 a.m. Monday. When he went to investigate what had his Irish setter-Lab mix so upset, he saw the bear on its hind legs, paws on the stove, licking a pan. Edwards’ wife, Sara, had fallen asleep on the couch and his first instinct was to get his wife away from the kitchen area. However, he said, “I couldn’t tell her there was a bear in the house because she would have just lost her mind. She gets very upset over spiders.” So he woke her up and led her into the bedroom without telling her about the furry dish washer. Edwards went back into the kitchen to find the bear was gone and the pan was clean. Edwards credits his dog, Stanley, for waking him up before the bear got farther into the house.

HISTORY COMES ALIVE Indiana Civil War Historical Association holds it’s first LaGrange event BY PATRICK REDMOND
Obama begins Vineyard vacation EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama opened the first summer vacation of his second term Saturday on Martha’s Vineyard, trading Washington debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care overhaul for a hoped-for carefree week filled with golf, beach outings and hanging-out time with family and friends.
East Noble Middle School’s main entrance is now on Riley Street ,with administrative offices moved to inside the main entrance way. Beginning with the class of 2016, East Noble High School is doing away with weighted grades for advanced placement courses. The school corporation is partnering with Ivy Tech and Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne to offer up to 45 college credits through 15 AP courses with the start of this school year on a trimester
Jerry Culbertson, a Civil War reenactor with the 44th Indiana Civil War Historical Association, talks with a few visitors to his camp near the LaGrange County Courthouse Saturday afternoon. Culbertson and the men of the 44th were in town to be part of the first ever Civil War History Day on the lawn of the Courthouse. The daylong living history event filled the Courthouse lawn and drew more than 500 people to downtown LaGrange.
LAGRANGE — The sounds of Civil War vintage muskets being fired echoed off the LaGrange County Courthouse late Saturday afternoon as a small group of men loaded up their caplock rifles with powder only and pulled the triggers. A few minutes later, the roar of a Civil War vintage cannon also could be heard booming throughout downtown LaGrange. Both sounds were part of a living history celebration on the courthouse lawn Saturday that included a group of men re-enacting the lives of the men who made up Indiana’s 44th Infantry, a group of soldiers from northeast Indiana that fought in many of the Civil War’s biggest battles. “This has been an amazing day,” said Dalonda Young, one of the event’s organizers. Young estimated more than 500 people stopped by the courthouse just to stroll among the historical displays and vendor booths set up around the building.

Post-Benghazi, Obama plays it safe with embassies WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama seems determined to make sure he doesn’t have another Benghazi. Pilloried by Republicans in Congress for its handling of last year’s attack, his administration is responding with extra caution now that intelligence suggests a possible al-Qaida strike is in the works. Even as the threat may be subsiding, U.S. officials say they are taking no risks less than a year after militants killed four Americans in the eastern Libyan city and with Republicans poised to pounce on any misstep. After closing 19 diplomatic posts across the Muslim world for almost a week, the United States added to the global uneasiness Friday. It ordered nonessential staff out of Lahore, Pakistan, and warned Americans to avoid traveling to the country. The action appeared
unrelated to the al-Qaida threat stemming from Yemen, but mirrored a missive earlier in the week to U.S. embassy staffers in that country. The stated reason for all the recent security measures: “An overabundance of caution.” Come Sunday, all but one of the 19 embassies and consulates will reopen, the State Department announced late Friday. The exception: the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen. In addition, the consulate in Lahore was to remain closed. A department spokeswoman did not cite a reason for the decision to reopen the 18 missions. Obama said at a White House news conference Friday afternoon that al-Qaida’s core has been decimated by U.S. counterterrorism efforts such as the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden in his SEE BENGHAZI, PAGE A6

‘It looked like a meth store’ Police find evidence of 21 meth labs at Topeka home TOPEKA — Police officers acting on a tip searching for a wanted person instead uncovered more than they bargained for Friday night. Police arrested Justin M.

A 3-hour search of the home resulted in the discovery of 21 one pot methamphetamine labs, as well as what the officers described in their report as “an overwhelming amount of methamphetamine precursors, paraphernalia and toxic waste associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine.” “It looked like a meth store,” LaGrange County

Police Blotter • Collision injures two ST. JOE — Two people sustained injuries in a collision Friday at 10:45 p.m. at the west junction of S.R. 8 and S.R. 1, DeKalb County Police reported. Chad J. Leavell, 28, of Hicksville, Ohio, had a laceration to his head and was transported to DeKalb Health hospital at Auburn for treatment. Myra E. Finton, 18, of Kendallville, complained of pain and had minor abrasions to her right knee. Police said Ariel R.E. Lawson, 17, of Kendallville, was driving a 2006 Jeep Commander with Finton as her passenger. Lawson was traveling northbound on S.R. 1 when she stopped at the intersection with S.R. 8, then made a left turn into the path of Leavell’s 2000 GMC Yukon, which was eastbound on S.R. 8. A news release said police cited Lawson for alleged failure to yield the right of way.
Traffic stop leads to drug arrests KENDALLVILLE — Three people were arrested on drug charges after Kendallville police initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle for a traffic law infraction. At about 11:37 a.m. Thursday, Kendallville Cpl. Dog Davis stopped a vehicle in the 200 block of East North Street, according to a Kendallville Police Department news release. While checking the vehicle Davis allegedly found containers in the trunk that had ingredients for the manufacture of methamphetamine. Arrested on preliminary charges of possession of precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine were: Jeanne Jimenez, 54, of Rome City, Gregory Carter, 30, of Albion, and Jack Wonderly 56, of Albion. All were inside the vehicle when it was stopped. They were booked into the Noble County Jail each on a $4,500 bond.
After making contact with and detaining the home’s occupants, police officers secured a search warrant to look inside the home from the LaGrange County Superior Court. In addition to the drugs, police officers also found seven firearms that including multiple long rifles and handguns. Among those firearms were a loaded Tec-9 9 millimeter handgun, an assault style rifle and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
Youths erase graffiti, hope for a better Gary GARY (AP) — The teens, holding spray cans, gathered around the old post office on Sixth Avenue and Massachusetts Street and began spraying the marble. They joked that a passer-by might think they were vandals, until they took out their sponges and scrubbed away paint stains on the graffiti-covered walls. “We are improving Gary little by little,” said Samantha Brooks, 14. “And I think we can really make a comeback.” On Wednesday, young volunteers and members of the Gary Youth Leadership Council began their campaign to wipe Gary of graffiti. The group of 37 teens used spray paint remover to
scrub graffiti off the old post office marble, painted over graffiti on an old theater on Broadway and cleaned along Broadway from Sixth to 21st Avenue, The Times in Munster reported. In early July, Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson contacted Ken Patrick Barry, director of the Gary Youth Service Bureau, about helping accomplish her goal of cleaning up vandalism in the city. “The mayor has a larger vision of stopping the violence,” Barry said. “A lot of these acts of violence are committed by young people because there’s no alternative for them.” Klayton Porter, 14, rolled
paint over the boarded-up windows of the old theater. In minutes, the graffiti that covered the building’s side was gone without a trace. “This accomplishes that the youth of Gary can do something positive,” Porter said. “It proves Gary is making a change for itself.” As members of the group took paint rollers and sponges to the old buildings, they talked about stories their parents told them about the Gary that existed before they were born, and the sites that once filled the city. Niavia Wilson, 17, believes one day, that Gary could be restored. “I hear stories, that the city was great, and
there were bustling stores everywhere,” Wilson said. “It seems people gave up, but I’m glad a group of people haven’t, who are out here helping.” While picking up trash around the old theater, the teens discovered a space between the brick walls of the building. An opening revealed the inside of the theater with the colossal stage and looming balcony. “This is amazing; I am astonished. I live down the street and have never seen that before,” said Janetta Barge, a teen volunteer. “I think we should have more ideas of replenishing these things, getting Gary back to the way it was.”

Girl collecting shoes for orphans NEW PARIS (AP) — When Amy and Quintin Schini adopted their daughter, Jocelyn, from an orphanage in Russia, the four-year-old was wearing a pair of sandals, the only shoes she owned. “We couldn’t get them to stay on her,” Amy recalled. “They didn’t fit correctly.” As Jocelyn grew up, Amy and Quintin would tell
their daughter the story of her tiny pair of shoes. Jocelyn, 14, hasn’t forgotten the story. She now wants to make sure other children and orphans have shoes that fit and are comfortable. In lieu of a birthday celebration this summer, Jocelyn, of New Paris, organized a shoe and money drive.

Edgy ads cut through clutter Consumers less worried about what may have once been deemed offensive BY RICK FARRANT firstname.lastname@example.org
The LaGrange County Courthouse towers 135 feet above the surrounding landscape, but new paint for its dome is just one of many items on a list of its needs. A list presented to county commissioners last week had an estimated total cost of $190,000.
Countyâ€™s prisoner income declining ALBION â€” Noble Countyâ€™s income from housing state prisoners in its jail is running significantly lower, but still on track to be among the highest such incomes in the state, the Noble County Council heard Monday. Noble County Sheriff Doug Harp reported that the number of state prisoners being housed at the jail is down substantially from a year ago. If the number of prisoners remains consistent for the rest of the year, Noble County will have earned $450,000 from housing prisoners this year, Harp said. Thatâ€™s down from about $600,000 in 2012. Even so, $450,000 would put Noble County on track to earn the third most of any county in Indiana this year from housing DOC prisoners, Harp said. The DOC has been working to reduce the number of low-level felons it incarcerates through programs such as community corrections, and it has been sending fewer prisoners to county jails for housing for several years.
Nine jail inmates earn GED certificates ANGOLA â€” Nine Steuben County Jail inmates have received their GED certificates this year due to a local nonprofit collaboration. Three passed the test earlier this year and six more recently received their GED certificates after working one-on-one with volunteer tutors at the jail. The program was made possible through a partnership between the Steuben County Literacy Coalition, Steuben County Sheriffâ€™s Department, Steuben County Jail Ministry and Steuben County United Way. It began with a grant from the Indiana Association of United Ways supported by Lilly Endowment and coordination by jail chaplain Gayle Fisher. â€œThe matching funds became available based on campaign success; itâ€™s a great example of how new campaign dollars can double.â€? said Bobbi Grill, Steuben County United Way executive director. â€œEach United Way can access grant funds equal to 10 percent of the annual campaign and use it with the purpose of creating strong collaborations addressing the common good in their community.â€?
Chamber honors new, growing businesses AUBURN â€” DeKalb Chamber Partnership president Rob Moreland calls it his favorite chamber event â€” an annual breakfast recognizing new and expanding businesses. Tuesdayâ€™s event at Bridgewater Golf Club saluted 20 businesses that in the past year have invested $134 million and pledged to create up to 550 new jobs, according to Ken McCrory, executive director of the DeKalb County Economic Development Partnership. â€œWe are getting stronger in the long haul,â€? McCrory said about the local business climate. â€œWe have set the table quite well for the growth of existing industry â€Ś and attraction of new industry.â€? Mayor Norm Yoder said Auburnâ€™s 12 new and growing businesses make up the cityâ€™s largest group in the history of the chamber event. Businesses honored at the event ranged from one-person operations to some of the countyâ€™s largest employers, such as Nucor and Steel Dynamics Inc.
State finds school grade â€˜manipulationâ€™ INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â€” Indianaâ€™s top education official on Wednesday acknowledged â€œmanipulationâ€? in the way the stateâ€™s schools are graded, the latest fallout from an Associated Press report that found her predecessor worked behind the scenes to improve the score of a charter school founded by an influential Republican donor. Superintendent Glenda Ritz told state school board members that this yearâ€™s school ratings would be held up, at least temporarily, as a result of the independent review into the A-F grading system and left open the possibility some of last yearâ€™s grades could be changed. The system was established by Tony Bennett, a rising star in the education reform movement, who last week resigned from his new job as Floridaâ€™s schools chief amid the scandal in Indiana. Ritz declined to discuss specifics of the review but said a final report could be ready by Sept. 2.
Al-Qaida message led to embassy closures WASHINGTON (AP) â€” An intercepted secret message between al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri and his deputy in Yemen about plans for a major terror attack was the trigger that set off the current shutdown of many U.S. embassies, two officials told The Associated Press on Monday. A U.S. intelligence official and a Mideast diplomat said al-Zawahriâ€™s message was picked up several weeks ago and appeared to initially target Yemeni interests. The threat was expanded to include American or other Western sites abroad, officials said, indicating the target could be a single embassy, a number of posts or some other site. Lawmakers have said it was a massive plot in the final stages, but they have offered no specifics.
The play-on-words commercials were hard to ignore. One touting a T-shirt company in Auburn used the phrase â€œoh, smit,â€? and contextually it sounded distinctly like, well, something else. Two other commercials promoting a national retailer alternately used the phrases â€œship my pantsâ€? and â€œbig gas savings,â€? and â€œshipâ€? didnâ€™t sound like a mailing and â€œbig gasâ€? clearly intimated a bulbous body part. For years, sex and sensuality have been used in advertising to draw attention to products and companies. The new entries â€” which could be construed as sophomoric or savvy or both â€” represent an elevated edginess that some observers suggest illustrates an expanding tolerance of whatâ€™s acceptable among listeners and viewers. For Smit-Tâ€™s in Auburn and Kmart, there likely was only one desired effect and at least one of the companies said the commercials achieved that: increased business. â€œIt got a really good response,â€? said Dakota Smith, owner of Smit-Tâ€™s. â€œI didnâ€™t have anyone saying anything bad about it. People loved it. People said to me it was something different and it was something theyâ€™ll remember.â€? Smith said his commercial, which ran in June and July on radio sports-talk programs aired by The Fan (106.7-FM and 1380-AM), brought in 10 to 15 new customers, including two traveling youth baseball teams. A Kmart spokeswoman said the national brandâ€™s two commercials, which debuted on YouTube several months ago and remain posted on the Internet, have also been successful. One of the commercials graduated to cable television broadcasts. The Kmart spokeswoman declined to say whether the commercials had led to increased business, but she noted the â€œship my pantsâ€? commercial has generated more than 19 million YouTube views and the â€œbig gas savingsâ€? ad nearly 6 million. She said the overall feedback from viewers has been positive and there has been little push-back from consumers. That doesnâ€™t surprise professionals like Matt Kelley, owner of the Fort Wayne advertising and marketing firm One Lucky Guitar, and John Cuneo, Chicago-based writer and director for Fort Wayneâ€™s Punch Films. â€œI havenâ€™t done any studies, but my gut says Americans may be a little more liberal than the
Smit-Tâ€™s owner Dakota Smith, modeling a T-shirt specifically made for this story, said his companyâ€™s daring messaging in a radio commercial brought more business to the Auburn store.
puritanical clothes we drape ourselves in,â€? said Cuneo, who has written scripts for print and broadcast promotions. â€œWeâ€™ve been very genteel in our delivery for many, many years. Maybe (companies are thinking) itâ€™s not the worst thing in the world to throw something out there thatâ€™s entertaining and is going to stick in the viewersâ€™ minds.â€? Kelly went so far as to say he liked the Kmart commercials â€œfrom a creative, craftsmanship perspective,â€? although he also cautioned that such commercials do present a risk. â€œThe risk in my mind is: Are you going to offend your core customer base, which probably is a little more conservative, to reach a new, younger (demographic)?â€? Kelley said. â€œI think their decision was letâ€™s risk a little of that with the opportunity to gain a larger audience.â€? And in the process, he said, cut through the other advertising noise and position Kmart as a hipper brand. â€œThere are countless brands,â€? he said, â€œwho have never tried to hip themselves up and theyâ€™ve fallen on their face.â€? Not all brands, though, should consider straying from serious pitches in favor of choosing edgy humor to promote products, Kelley and
Cuneo said. Some brands require a large measure of marketing restraint. For Kmart, Cuneo said, going out on a linguistic limb was just fine. â€œI mean, how serious do you want to take Kmart?â€? Cuneo said. â€œItâ€™s not like itâ€™s a new ad campaign by the Catholic Church to recruit priests. Itâ€™s Kmart. Youâ€™re going there to get a garden hose.â€? Smith said the play on words was equally suitable for his kind of company. â€œIt does depend on what kind of business you have,â€? he said. â€œI mean, I wouldnâ€™t want to hear (â€œoh, smitâ€?) from a law firm. But I have a T-shirt company and the commercial was funny.â€? For his part, Kelley doesnâ€™t intend to go down the same road with his clients, and â€œI feel rather proudly that we have clients who donâ€™t say, â€˜Find something that will shock our audience.â€™
â€œIâ€™m looking to make a connection on a deeper level â€” to become meaningful to the audience,â€? he said. â€œAnd to make a lasting connection.â€? Often, he said, with funny, edgy commercials â€œyou get a short chuckle and then itâ€™s gone. It meant nothing.â€? Nevertheless, Kmart may have sequels, the company spokeswoman said, although nothing is planned. And Smith, whose company provides custom embroidery and silk-screening for apparel as well as banner and sign products, said he would consider running a similar commercial again â€” and again place it in a program slot that largely draws an adult audience. â€œTimes have changed,â€? he said. â€œPeople are loosening up a little bit and that funny stuff, people are remembering it. You can talk about how good your product is, but everyone can talk about that.â€?

Living his life to the fullest Al Patterson had a sparkle in his eye BY JENNIFER DECKER email@example.com
SNOW LAKE — Al Patterson squeezed every drop out of life he could muster. And then some. Patterson, 68, of Snow Lake, died July 17 at home from throat and mouth cancer. He was known for his trademark deep dimples, a sparkle to his eye and for serving 22 years as a Steuben County sheriff’s reserve and detective. He was born Jan. 31, 1945, in Brooklyn, N.Y., to Robert and Marie (Fuccie) Patterson. After graduating from a Brooklyn high school in only three years, Al moved with his family out west to California. He served four years in the Vietnam War in the U.S. Air Force. Afterward, Al never talked about serving in the war. Eventually, in California, Al worked for AB Dick Co. for 15 years as a salesman and repaired the printing presses. He also owned his own business, Patterson Offset Service, from which he retired in 1988. It was through Al’s best friend who became his sister-in-law, Pam Schultz, that he met and married Judy (Pettigrew) on Aug. 26, 1989, in Fort Wayne. Judy is Pam’s sister. “He took me up on a mountain in Phoenix and proposed to me in
a parking lot overlooking Phoenix. We were married in Fort Wayne,” Judy said. The couple took a honeymoon trip around the country visiting every state except Montana and Washington. Upon seeing Steuben County for the first time, Al became smitten with it. The couple settled at Snow Lake in a home Al remodeled. The couple soon joined the lake association, and Al was a member of the marine patrol. Eventually, he joined the sheriff’s reserves. But Al didn’t leave it at that. He always Patterson dreamed about being a detective and reached that goal, often doing arson investigations. After retiring from the sheriff’s reserves, Al worked part-time with Judy at Satek Winery, Fremont. Al’s talents with woodworking came in handy at Satek. “We had a lady drive her car into the building, and we had to close the winery down,” Judy said. “They asked Al to redesign the wine racks, and he re-did six. He was constantly rebuilding or doing something at the winery.” Since 1972, Schultz was Al’s best friend.
“My most outstanding time was when we had been out with a group of friends. He decided to do karaoke with two other guys, and it was hilarious. We were going to another bar, and he stops on Beach Boulevard and a song was playing, and we all got out and danced. When the song was done — we got back in,” Schultz said. Al loved photography, and his tripod and camera were always within reach. He used his photography talent to capture harvesttime photos and close-ups of grape clusters for the winery. Al’s friends talked fondly of him. “Al was a beloved friend, colleague and artisan,” said Fred Barnes, who worked at Satek with Al. “He was an exceptional man in so many ways and will be forever in my thoughts and memories.” Rita Lechleidner, a licensed minister, was performing a wedding four years ago for which Al did the photography. The pair became great friends. “He definitely is the definition of a fighter. He lived his life every day to the fullest,” she said. Most of all, Al shared what was in his heart. “He wasn’t afraid to tell you he loved you,” Lechleidner said. Surviving in addition to his wife are her six children, his two daughters, 38 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the donor’s choice.
Real world hits TV’s ‘Mountain Man’ TRIPLETT, N.C. (AP) — The way Eustace Conway sees it, there’s the natural world, as exemplified by his Turtle Island Preserve in the Blue Ridge Mountains. And then there’s the “plastic, imitation” one that most other humans inhabit. But the border between the two has always been a porous one. When he bought his first 107 acres in 1987, Conway’s vision for Turtle Island was as “a tiny bowl in the earth, intact and natural, surrounded by pavement and highways.” People peering inside from nearby ridges would see “a pristine and green example of what the whole world once looked like.” Since leaving his parents’ suburban home at 17 and moving into the woods, Conway has been preaching the gospel of sustainable, “primitive” living. But over the past three decades, those notions have clearly evolved. Conway has traded his trademark buckskins for jeans and T-shirts. Visitors to Turtle Island are as likely to hear the buzz of a chain saw as the call of an eagle, and interns learn that “Dumpster diving” is as important a skill as hunting or fishing. And then there are the television cameras. For the past two seasons, Conway has brought his message of simpler living to the History Channel reality show, “Mountain Men” — a role he concedes is inherently oxymoronic. “I think television’s terrible,” the 52-year-old woodsman says with a chuckle that shakes his long, iron-grey beard. “So it’s definitely a paradox.” But it’s all part of a complex dance. For Conway and Turtle Island, sustainability has come to depend on interns and apprentices, and on tax-exempt status from a regulatory system this self-styled “true old-time mountain man” openly despises. It also depends, increasingly, on a steady stream of paying campers. And that is where Conway’s peaceful coexistence with the “modern world” broke down. Acting on a complaint about alleged illegal building, officials from the Watauga County Planning and Inspection Department raided Turtle Island last fall and found dozens of structures for which no permits were ever pulled. Citing numerous health and safety code violations,
Eustace Conway sits near horse-drawn farm implements at his Turtle Island Preserve in Triplett, N.C., on June 27.
the county attorney gave Conway three options: Bring the buildings up to minimum state standards, have an expert certify that they already met code and obtain proper permits, or tear them down. What ensued was more than just a battle of government versus the individual. It was also very much about the lines between what is real and what is “reality.” County Planning Director Joe Furman says the conflict started in late spring of 2012 with an anonymous phone call, followed about a week later by an unmarked envelope containing a crudely drawn but highly detailed, color-coded map. It showed buildings, road grading and wiring — all allegedly done without proper permitting, engineering or inspections. Unlike some of his fellow TV “Mountain Men,” who toil high in the Rockies or far out in the Alaskan wilderness, Conway is hardly cut off from civilization. Turtle Island lies near the Tennessee border, just a few miles east of Boone — a county seat of 17,000 residents whose population doubles when Appalachian State University, Conway’s alma mater, is in session. Just beyond the gravel road that leads into the 1,000-acre preserve, spacious, modern homes nestle on wooded lots within sight of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Once through the gates, everything changes. After crossing a dancing stream, the road opens onto a meadow ringed by a blacksmith shop, open-air kitchen and dining room, a corn crib and assorted other outbuildings. Dominating the
scene is a massive cantilevered barn, constructed of dovetailed logs and roofed with 5,000 hand-hewn, moss-covered shingles. The name comes from an American Indian creation myth about a great turtle that saved the world’s creatures from a cataclysmic flood by supporting them on its shell. “In the figurative sense,” Conway’s website explains, “we are an island of wilderness in a sea of development and destruction.” Not exactly, say local officials. After a cursory inspection, Furman says talks between his office and Conway broke down. So on Sept. 19, Furman came back with a warrant and sheriff’s deputies. Beginning with Conway’s own home, inspectors found the building lacked the minimum water and sewer connections. All of the buildings were constructed of wood milled on site, not the marked, graded lumber required in the building codes. Solar panels run the equipment in Conway’s little office, and a micro-hydroelectric plant installed by students from ASU’s Appropriate Technology Program powers a small workshop. Inspectors say they found wiring and junction boxes that were not up to code. The team noted a wood stove whose chimney was vented beneath a building’s metal roof, not through it, and unpermitted outhouses intended for public use. Several buildings were not connected to the stackedstone foundations supporting them. In his 78-page report,
consultant W.O. Whaley concluded that many of the buildings were “not structurally sound.” “The property in its present state presents a hazard to the safety of anyone near any of the structures,” he wrote. “I would suggest obtaining a court order to vacate the property to protect the lives of the public and the interns.” Conway and his supporters argued that Furman’s office was missing the point. How, he asked, can he teach primitive living in modern, cookie-cutter structures? “Human beings have built their own houses for thousands and thousands, and actually millions of years,” Conway says. “And now we can’t even build our own house with our own material that grows on our own land? That’s not some regulation that’s just a county problem. That’s a human rights issue.” To counter Whaley’s report, Conway posted a series of interviews with certified building inspector Drew Kelly on YouTube. Kelly said most of the buildings were constructed “at bare minimum, above what they’re wanting regular houses to be built at.” “Do they fit modern-day building codes?” Kelly said. “No. Because they’re not modern-day structures.” Conway doubts there ever was a complaint. He believes it’s no coincidence that his trouble with the planning department began during the first season of “Mountain Men.” But as the show illustrates, there can be a fine line between perception and reality. “What do I do for a living?” Conway says in the premiere episode. “I live for a living.” The show is mostly about man’s struggle against nature. But in Conway’s story line, a frequent adversary is “the government.” In season one’s second episode, titled “Mayhem,” Conway opens his mailbox to find an official-looking letter inside. He slits it open with his pocketknife. “Motion to claim exempt property?” he reads from the court document in his hand. “This is crazy. Damn attorney is paying the sheriff to serve me. Going to take all my land? .. Basically, I just got a letter saying, ‘Your life is over.’”

Missing teen found safe
In this photo provided by the National Transportation Safety Board, the board’s senior air safety investigator, Bob Gretz, back to camera, confers with emergency
responders on the scene of Friday morning’s crash of a Rockwell 960B airplane into a neighbohood in East Haven, Conn.
Pilot in deadly East Coast wreck survived earlier crash HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The plane accident that killed four people in a Connecticut neighborhood was not the first crash for the pilot, a former Microsoft executive who was taking his teenage son on a tour of East Coast colleges. The pilot, Bill Henningsgaard, was presumed killed along with his son, Maxwell, and two children who were inside a house struck by the small propeller-driven plane on Friday. Four bodies were recovered from the wreckage and sent to the Connecticut medical examiner’s office on Saturday for identification, officials said. Henningsgaard, a highly regarded philanthropist, was flying a small plane to Seattle in 2009 with his mother when the engine quit. He crash-landed on Washington’s Columbia River. “I forced myself to confront that fact that the situation any pilot fears —
a mid-air emergency, was happening right then, with my mother in the plane,” he wrote in a blog post days later. In the Connecticut crash, Henningsgaard was coming in for a landing at Tweed New Haven Airport in rainy weather just before noon when the plane struck two small homes, engulfing them in flames. The aircraft’s left wing lodged in one house and its right wing in the other, with its tail section coming to rest upside down. Two children, ages 1 and 13, have been missing since the plane crashed into their home. As their mother yelled for help from the front lawn, several people in the working-class neighborhood raced to rescue the children, but they were forced to turn back by the fire. Authorities said previously that as many as six people could have died in the crash, but East Haven Deputy Fire Chief
Anthony Moscato said the four recovered late Friday are believed to be the only victims. On Saturday, crews removed charred sections of the plane as National Transportation Safety Board investigators worked to determine the cause of the crash. The pilot’s family learned it was Bill Henningsgaard’s plane through the tail number, said his brother, Blair Henninsgaard, the city attorney in Astoria, Ore. In 2009, Bill Henningsgaard was flying from Astoria, Ore. with his 84-year-old mother to watch his daughter in a high school play when he crashed into the river as he tried to glide back to the airport. He and his mother, a former Astoria mayor, climbed out on a wing and were rescued. Henningsgaard was a member of Seattle-based Social Venture Partners, a foundation that helps build up communities.
CASCADE, Idaho (AP) — A man suspected of killing a California woman and her young son before fleeing with her 16-year-old daughter was killed in the Idaho wilderness and the teen was found safe Saturday, authorities said. James Lee DiMaggio, 40, was killed at the north end of Morehead Lake, San Diego Sheriff William D. Gore said. The shooting came after officers participating in a massive manhunt spotted a campsite from the air. The FBI said it was sending in a team to investigate the shooting, but offered few details. Gore said San Diego sheriff’s authorities have notified Hannah Anderson’s father that she was rescued. “He was very relieved and very excited and looking forward to being reunited with his
daughter,” Gore said. Plans are being made to reunite the two as soon as possible. Hannah has no apparent physical injuries, but she was taken to a hospital where crisis counselors, victim witness coordinators and health care providers are assisting her. “We will make sure she gets as much care as possible, physically and emotionally,” said Andrea Dearden, a spokeswoman from the Ada County Sheriff’s Department who has been leading the communication team for the interagency effort in Valley County. Dearden said she didn’t know if DiMaggio fired at officers. She said the teen and DiMaggio were spotted not far from where a horseback rider reported seeing the pair Wednesday. Federal and local law
ALBRIGHT’S SUPERMARKET CORUNNA, INDIANA • PHONE 260-281-2691
WASHINGTON (AP) — For President Barack Obama, August was supposed to be the time when a major immigration bill landed on his desk. There was hope for movement on a deficit deal with Republicans, and in the optimistic early days of his second term, even a belief that he would have achieved stricter gun laws. Instead, Obama finds his fifth year in office beset by distractions, perhaps none with broader implications than the revelation of secret government surveillance programs. That matter dominated Obama’s hourlong news conference Friday. The issues that the White House had hoped to be promoting
this summer? They played a diminished role, if at all. The president set the tone, opening the session by announcing that he would work with Congress to make “appropriate reforms” to the National Security Agency surveillance programs. He also made clear that he had no intention of stopping the daily collection of Americans’ phone records. “Given the history of abuse by governments, it’s right to ask questions about surveillance, particularly as technology is reshaping every aspect of our lives,” he said, one day before leaving for a weeklong vacation on Martha’s Vineyard off the Massachusetts coast.
Even without the NSA disclosures, Obama still would face the same political dynamic with congressional Republicans that stalled progress on immigration, vanquished hope of a long-term budget bargain and defeated gun control and other administration priorities. It’s a reality of any administration that unexpected challenges can arise and shake up the carefully laid plans. But the scope of the surveillance programs, leaked by former NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden, makes this an issue that’s probably will be more than a temporary distraction.

WASHINGTON (AP) — For many students and teachers, summer vacation was more like summer term. Reading lists. Science camps. Portfolio development. The to-do list for kids and teachers sound remarkably alike. Schools are on the hook to improve student performance on high-stakes tests, administrators are eyeing more science and technology instruction, and parents are demanding more for their children. Some studies suggest students lose as much as two months of knowledge over the summer. Advocates say educators can’t expect their students to succeed if they, too, spend the summer months poolside. “Summer learning space is time for innovation,” said
Gary Huggins, chief executive officer of the National Summer Learning Association. “Innovation doesn’t flow easily into the school year.” That’s why summer programs used the past few months to try new things. Teachers in one of Chicago’s struggling elementary schools huddled for two months this summer to retool the reading curriculum for first- and second-graders. Elsewhere, more than 4,000 teachers turned to a weeklong lesson on water purification to see if parts of it could work during the school year. In New York City’s Harlem neighborhood, students spent six weeks flipping through books on everything from hip-hop to Depression-era toys in an
effort to spark an interest in reading and narrow the gap between the scores of rich and poor students. All were fresh approaches that could make their way into the school-year classrooms. Think of summer programs as a test drive for some lessons without the pressure, a chance to try something without consequences. If things don’t work out, the side effect is that maybe students don’t forget so much as they learned last year. “There’s been all this work done and investment made over the last nine months and then that investment stops,” said Pam Allyn, executive director of LitWorld, a literacy nonprofit. “For every kid — no matter where they live — out of school time is really problematic.”

Obama agenda altered by NSA surveillance issues
enforcement spent Saturday combing through Idaho’s rugged Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in search of Hannah and DiMaggio. The wilderness is the largest roadless area in the lower 48 states, sprawling across central Idaho and reaching north to the Montana border. DiMaggio is suspected of killing Hannah’s mother, 44-year-old Christina Anderson, and her 8-year-old brother Ethan Anderson, whose bodies were found Sunday night in DiMaggio’s burning house in California near the Mexico border. DiMaggio’s car was found Friday morning about 40 miles east of the tiny town of Cascade, parked where the dirt road ends and the Sand Creek trailhead enters the wilderness area.

Inner workings of Indiana government rarely disclosed INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — More and more, the internal workings of Indiana government are being shown and the political pageantry stripped away in a reminder that the trappings of power are rarely trumpeted in news conferences, aired in campaign ads or otherwise pushed out to the public. The shock over former school Superintendent Tony Bennett’s grade-changing scandal might have had the biggest impact, costing a national education rock star his job as Florida education commissioner. But many other stories have been unearthed by Indiana media recently, showing a government that often operates more in private than public. The chief of staff to
Secretary of State Connie Lawson has spent the last five months negotiating a job with lobbying powerhouse The Corydon Group. An ongoing Indianapolis Star investigation uncovered that a contractor hired by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, Elevate Ventures, had sent $800,000 in federal money meant for startup business to companies it had ties to. And the Indianapolis Business Journal uncovered a pay-toplay scandal at Indianapolis’ land bank program months before federal agents spent a day hauling records from the City-County Building and indictments were announced. There are many more investigations that have pulled back the curtain for
the public, and in each case the government didn’t issue any press releases for these stories. Instead, the stories Statehouse leaders have pushed have focused on job-creation task forces, the governor’s tax cut and other priorities. Bennett, in particular, has maintained that nothing wrong happened behind the scenes. Instead, he has said the news coverage of his grade-changing scandal “cheapened” all his other efforts at education overhaul. On July 31, Bennett sent a resignation note to former Gov. Mitch Daniels, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Patricia Levesque, executive director of Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education — three people who shaped
his efforts. “Regardless of how untrue the portrayal is about our work in Indiana, it cheapened what we tried to do,” Bennett wrote in the email, recently obtained by Florida press. “Yes, while I can stand up until my dying day and defend what we did as right, it did cheapen what we did. He called the 48 hours of intense media scrutiny since the story first broke “a living hell.” His incredible frustration at all of the attention is similar to the frustration of Indiana school leaders who could not get answers from his team on how their school grades were calculated. A few changes have made it easier to discover how elected officials are earning their public salaries.
SCHOOL: DeKalb students returned to school on Aug. 2 FROM PAGE A1
West Noble Students will return to West Noble schools on Monday, Aug. 19. There will be few changes for students and staff, but parents are being reminded that fewer bus stops will be made in the central part of Ligonier this school year. Any student living within an approximately half-mile or five-block area will be required to walk to the West Noble Primary building to board an assigned bus to the U.S. 33 campus. Students living in that zone will return in the afternoon to the West Noble Primary School building and walk home. More details on the changes are available at westnoble.k12.in.us.
Central Noble Central Noble schools will open for the 2013-2014 school year Wednesday. The schools will have a new resource officer from the Noble County Sheriff’s Department. Deputy Dave Worman will step into that role. Also, a new security software called Filewave is in use on all of the school’s iPads to keep them from being used in inappropriate ways.

BENGHAZI: Extended closures have consequences for U.S. diplomacy FROM PAGE A1
compound in Pakistan. But the terrorist network’s affiliates continue to threaten the U.S. “Although they are less likely to be able to carry out spectacular homeland attacks like 9/11, they have the capacity to go after our embassies,” Obama said. “They have the capacity to go after our businesses. They have the capacity to be destabilizing and disruptive in countries where the security apparatus is weak. And that’s what we are seeing now.” “We are not going to completely eliminate terrorism,” he said. “What we can do is to weaken it and
to strengthen our partners so that it does not pose the kind of horrible threat that it posed on 9/11.” Obama didn’t talk specifically about the threat or the embassy closings. But U.S. officials familiar with internal discussions acknowledged that last year’s deadly attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi was playing a role in the decisionmaking. They said the White House, in particular, was insisting on handling the situation with extra caution, and only reopening embassies and consulates to the public when no meaningful threat persisted. They spoke on condition of anonymity
because they weren’t authorized to talk publicly about the deliberations. Extended closures have consequences for U.S. diplomacy. It means would-be tourists and those traveling on business have to wait for visas, pickpocketed Americans can’t get new passports and fewer personnel are at work promoting human rights, facilitating trade deals or coordinating with foreign governments on issues vital to U.S. security and economic growth. It also takes a toll on the U.S. image in countries with anti-American sentiment already. The shutdown order for diplomatic facilities from
northwest Africa to Bangladesh stands in sharp contrast to the approach the administration favored last September under different circumstances. The current danger across much of North Africa and the Middle East concerns a potential al-Qaida attack stemming from lawless Yemen, while the Pakistan closures relate to a flurry of deadly militant attacks there. The threat a year ago was more amorphous and even less predictable, focusing primarily on a flood of protests from West Africa to the Philippines over an amateur, anti-Islam film made by an Egyptian living in the United States.
REENACTMENT: Event included chicken barbecue, demonstrations FROM PAGE A1
drew a constant stream of visitors, all curious about the life of a Civil War soldier. “People really want to know what it was like to live then,” said re-enactor Jerry Culbertson, a member of the group. “The number of people we saw, the number of people we talked to, it really exceeded my expectations.” From a chicken barbecue to demonstrations on how to make hardtack and how to spin yarn, the courthouse lawn was packed with visitors curious about life in the 1860s. Dressed in a Civil War-style dress and headpiece, Indiana state senator and LaGrange County resident C. Susan Glick helped kick off the event by delivering a keynote address Saturday morning from the steps of the courthouse gazebo. The Civil War History Day event was free and open to the public.
“I love history, and a lot of people told me they do, too. If one other person left here believing they learned something new about history, then I am happy.” Jean Fremion-McKibben A CWHD event organizer
• Joining in the celebration were the Shipshewana Area Historical Association, the LaGrange County Historical Society, which opened the doors to its museum to the public, as well as the LaGrange County Public Library, which used its community room to display a collection of Civil War vintage quilts and artifacts. Young called the first-ever event a huge success. “All the feedback I heard was positive,” she said late Saturday afternoon. Some of the guests visiting the courthouse history
celebration said they were on their way to the LaGrange County fairgrounds where the Northeast Indiana Steam and Gas Association was holding its 32nd annual Steam and Gas Show. The history day organizers admitted they originally decided to hold the historical celebration on the same weekend as the Steam and Gas Show, hoping visitors would attend both events. Jean Fremion-McKibben, a history day organizer, said people told her they enjoyed the chance to glance at life in LaGrange County 150
years ago. “I love history, and a lot of people told me they do, too,” she said. “If one other person left here believing they learned something new about history, then I am happy.” One thing Fremion-McKibben said she thought helped bring visitors to the courthouse was Saturday’s weather, clear skies and somewhat cool temperatures for an Indiana August. “How do you beat this?” she asked, gesturing toward the sky. Both Fremion-McKibben and Young admitted they haven’t had much time to start thinking about whether to make the celebration an annual event, but each seemed to be leaning in that direction. Young said many of the people she talked to hinted they’d like to see the event return to LaGrange next summer. “Everybody seems to want to know what we’re going to do next year,” Young said.
School starts Tuesday, August 20 for all Lakeland school corporation students. This year, the school will be handing out iPads to kindergarten through seventhgrade students to use in the classroom. The school has acquired one laptop for every two K-7 students, moving toward the school system’s goal of providing each student with a digital device]. The program will roll out in September. All eighth-grade students will be issued laptops they can use in the school. As the school year progresses, they can earn the right to take the laptops home to study. Lakeland High School students receive school-issued laptops and immediately can take home the computers to complete their studies.
Prairie Heights Students return to classes Tuesday, Aug. 20, Alan Middleton, superintendent said. The district will start the 2013-14 school year with many administrative changes. Middleton is retiring after the upcoming year. His replacement has not yet been chosen by the board of education. Jeff Reed is now assistant superintendent, Jeremy Swander now heads Prairie Heights High School as its new principal after Donell Houser’s retirement, Andy Arndt comes from the Fremont schools to become high school assistant principal, and Vicki Walker will serve as principal of Prairie Heights Middle School after serving as assistant superintendent in charge of special services. The district is working on a new security entry system, and work continues on the athletic field, which is nearly ready to be seeded. Lights have been installed on the softball field.
Westview Classes for Westview students begin Tuesday. They will arrive to find buildings newly equipped with wireless connectivity and new telephone systems. “Our teachers have been given laptops and will be more mobile, with the ability to move around the classrooms while still using their computers,” said Superintendent Randy Zimmerly.
Metropolitan School District of Steuben County The first student day for schools in the Metropolitan School District of Steuben County is Aug. 21.
New this year will be a return to the traditional, seven-class schedule from the block schedule at Angola High School. To accommodate the change, this year the high school will start classes at 8 a.m, 10 minutes earlier than last year. Also, Ryan Park will greet a new principal this year. Amy Heavin has replaced Michael Christ, who retired.
Fremont Friday will be the first day for students in Fremont Community Schools. Superintendent Lori Vaughn said the corporation is preparing to make facility updates. “We sold a bond last year in preparation for a guaranteed energy savings contract and the work associated with the numerous facility updates, including HVAC systems and lighting. Project completion is slated for (this) week, prior to our students and staff returning,” she said Fremont’s administrative team remains the same. The district has a new, one-year kindergarten teacher to fill a maternity leave and a new elementary school art teacher to replace a teacher who retired.
Hamilton Students at Hamilton Community Schools return to classes Wednesday. Elementary Principal Barbara Weber said students will see noticeable advancements in the school’s push to place computers in every student’s lap. The district will issue Lenovo laptops to students in grades 6-12 students. Elementary students will use iPads, Weber said. At the elementary level, Hamilton will teach a new reading and language arts program that pushes all components of reading, among other focuses, Weber said. DeKalb Central Students returning to DeKalb Central classrooms Tuesday will find new administrators in several of the district’s schools. Kyle Kirby is the new principal at DeKalb High School, and Kimberly Fifer moves from her principal position at Country Meadow Elementary to principal at DeKalb Middle School. Caleb Miner, previously the middle school associate principal, will fill the opening left by Fifer at Country Meadow. Matt Vince is the new middle school associate principal and Nichole Veit is the new principal at Waterloo Elementary School. In the district’s central office, former DeKalb Middle School math teacher Lance Brauchla will become the district’s chief financial officer.
Garrett Garrett-Keyser-Butler Schools will open for students Monday. G-K-B is one of only three districts in the state being recognized for a new, cuttingedge, personalized learning initiative. “The concept takes a holistic view of the individual, skill levels, interests, strengths and challenges and prior knowledge. The learner owns his or her learning,” said Tonya Weaver, director of administration and innovation at GarrettKeyser-Butler. Learning is tailored to the individual needs of each learner instead of by age or grade level.
DeKalb Eastern DeKalb Eastern students returned to the classroom Aug. 2, the earliest known school start in the district’s history. The final student day will be May 30. Following every grading period, teachers and students will have two-week breaks. The district changed its calendar due to the Affordable Health Care act, how it relates to insurance offered to employees who work 30 hours or more, and financial obligations associated with the act, said Superintendent Dr. Jeff Stephens.

Business owners attend Oakland Olive Oil Summit
This Jan. 13, 2005, aerial file photo shows Los Pajaritos petrochemical complex that belongs to Mexico’s
state-owned oil company Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) in Coatzacoalcos in the state of Veracruz, Mexico.
State-owned Mexican oil monopoly faces overhaul MEXICO CITY (AP) — The cornerstone of Mexico’s economy, its state-owned Pemex oil monopoly, is crumbling. An unnoticed gas leak at its flagship Mexico City headquarters caused an explosion that collapsed three floors and killed 37 people this year. Thieves by the thousands tap into the company’s pipelines, resulting in frequent fiery blasts and damaging leaks. Pemex has barely broken ground on its biggest investment project, a $9 billion refinery, four years after it was announced. Worst of all, Mexico’s oil fields are drying up and Pemex lacks the equipment to explore for new reserves in deep water or to extract shale gas. Production has plunged about 25 percent over the last decade, and a country that was once a significant oil power could become a
net energy importer in a few years unless new production is brought online. Within days, President Enrique Pena Nieto is expected to propose the most sweeping changes in decades to rescue Petroleos Mexicanos. But the initiative is under ferocious attack even before it’s been made, largely because he is expected to propose loosening the government’s near-total monopoly on oil exploration and production. The passion over oil arises from one of Mexico’s proudest moments: President Lazaro Cardenas nationalized the industry in 1938, kicking out 17 foreign oil companies that Mexicans believe had been looting the country’s wealth. Seventy-five years later, most Mexicans still bristle at any hint of involvement by private companies, especially foreigners, even if Pemex
itself is encrusted with barnacles of a powerful and bloated union, inefficiency, theft, corruption and outdated technology. The most controversial part of Pena’s plan will likely seek to encourage private investment and technology, possibly including risk-sharing, production-sharing or concessionary agreements, which are banned by Mexico’s constitution. Pena Nieto repeatedly has assured Mexicans that his plan will not privatize the industry. In the most likely scenario, it would allow private firms to share in a percentage of the oil they find, or revenue from it. At present, the law limits them to straight contractual work with incentive bonuses. “Mexico cannot delay the transformation of its energy sector any longer,” Sen. David Penchyna wrote in a recent newspaper column.
AUBURN — Terry and Lori Berndt, owners of The Olive Twist Inc., attended the second annual International Olive Oil Summit July 27-28 in Oakland, Calif. The educational summit featured speeches and seminars by olive oil experts from around the world and was attended by hundreds of olive oil retailers. On the first day of the summit, the Berndts had lunch with journalist Tom Mueller, author of the book, “Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil,” and shared in the day’s full slate of activities. On the second day, they attended an olive oil sensory-tasting school taught by representatives of the Organizzazione Nazionale Assaggiiatori Olio di Oliva, one of the most-respected olive oil schools in the world. The ONAOO assisted the Berndts with
the steps for properly tasting and grading olive oil and provided instructions on how to distinguish a quality olive oil and separate out one that is rancid, musty, muddy, or in any other way defective. “Most people think rancid oil is what good olive oil is supposed to taste like. But it is the mission of The Olive Twist to educate and share quality olive oil with our friends, family and customers,” said Lori Berndt. “Rancid or bad olive oil in our diets is playing a large role in some of today’s health issues. Conversely, there are many health benefits from using quality extra-virgin olive oil in our diets.” Berndt said EVOO should be used within one year of its crush date—because as a fruit juice, olive oil can quickly become rancid, especially if it is not stored properly. To maintain
its healthy attributes and prevent rancidity, Berndt recommends storing olive oil out of sunlight, away from heat and sealed with a cork. Detailed storage instructions are available at both retail locations of The Olive Twist, at 6410 W. Jefferson Blvd., Suite 7A, Fort Wayne, and 115 N. Main St., Auburn. To educate local consumers on the benefits and uses of extra-virgin olive oil, The Olive Twist soon will be scheduling more of its in-house Olive Oil 101 classes, Berndt said. In addition, she will be teaching Olive Oil 101 on Nov. 5 in partnership with the Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne Division of Continuing Studies. Berndt is a client of the Northeast Indiana Small Business Development Center, which assisted her in starting her new business in 2010.
U.S. power grid in better shape BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The U.S. electrical grid is better managed and more flexible a decade after its largest blackout but remains vulnerable to increasingly extreme weather, cybersecurity threats, and stress caused by shifts in where and how power is produced. Many worry the grid isn’t fully prepared for the new and emerging challenges, even though an analysis conducted for The Associated Press shows maintenance spending has
steadily increased since North America’s largest blackout. “This job of reliability is kind of impossible, in the sense that there’s just so many things that could happen that it’s hard to be sure that you’re covering all the bases,” said William Booth, a senior electricity adviser with the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The industry has mostly addressed the failures blamed on a tree branch in Ohio that touched a power line and set off outages that cascaded
across eight states and parts of Canada the afternoon of Aug. 14, 2003, darkening computer screens, halting commuter trains, and cutting lights and air conditioners for 50 million people. Grid operators who didn’t initially realize what was happening now have a nearly real-time view of the system and are better equipped to stop problems from growing. Utilities share more information and systematically trim trees near high-voltage power lines.

Phillips’ threes lead Fever over Atlanta INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — With All-Star Shavante Zellous sidelined by a foot injury, the Indiana Fever had to make another lineup change Saturday. That left the Atlanta Dream little time to prepare for Zellous’ replacement, Erin Phillips. Making her first start of the season, Phillips set a career high with five 3-pointers to help the Fever defeat the Dream 80-66. The victory brought the defending WNBA champions back to .500 at 11-11. Zellous became the ninth different Fever player to miss a game due to injury this season. She was averaging a career-best 15 points this season. Tamika Catchings scored 21 points to lead the Fever, who bounced back from a loss on Thursday.

Furyk, Dufner share PGA lead PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — The final moments Saturday at Oak Hill brought out more emotion as big putts kept falling in the PGA Championship, with one big difference. These putts were for par. Jim Furyk, after a 3-wood struck so poorly off the 18th tee that he couldn’t have reached the green even if he had been in the fairway, worked his way up the 472-yard hole until he had a 15-foot putt from the fringe to keep a one-shot lead. The ball curled into the left corner of the cup, and the 43-year-old emphatically shook his fist. Adam Scott, whose sweet swing turned sour on the last few holes, was on the verge of letting the lead get another shot away from him when he knocked in a 15-foot putt for par on the 17th hole, bowed his head and pumped his fist. And then there was Jason Dufner, whose disappointment turned to surprise on the 18th hole when he took a step toward the cup to tap in a missed putt and watched gravity pull it into the hole for a par that put him in the final group. Perhaps those scenes were a prelude for Sunday, the final round of the final major of the year. “It’s only going to get harder,” Furyk said. Oak Hill finally had enough elements for a tough test, and

Furyk showed enough of his western Pennsylvania grit for a 2-under 68 and a one-shot lead over Dufner. Grinding to the end in a swirling wind that cast doubt on so many shots, Furyk closed with two clutch putts — one for birdie to regain the lead, the par putt to keep it — that put him 18 holes

away from winning another major 10 years after his U.S. Open title. There was nothing fancy about the way he worked his way to the top of the leaderboard at 9-under 201, but then, that’s rarely the case with Furyk. He made three birdies and two tough pars on the back nine, and the one bogey was a bunker shot that hit the pin and
rolled 7 feet away. He was so wrapped up in his game that he didn’t even know the score. “Give me a leaderboard. Where are we at?” he asked before he was told he was one shot ahead of Dufner, and two clear of Henrik Stenson. SEE PGA, PAGE B2
Colts set for game action Giants topple Steelers INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck knows what EJ Manuel can expect Sunday afternoon. It could be a learning experience for the rookie. “It’s a fun time,” Luck said. “There’s a lot of learning that goes on and a lot of that learning is a bit on the fly, if you will.” Luck was a quick learner. His first NFL pass went for a 63-yard touchdown to running back Donald Brown. Manuel will attempt to duplicate the feat when the Bills and Colts meet in the in same venue where Luck’s career began last year, Lucas Oil Stadium. The feature attraction will be watching the two highest-chosen quarterbacks in the last two drafts. Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in 2012, lived up to the hype with one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history. Manuel was a surprise choice at No. 16 overall this year and was the only quarterback taken in the first round. Their resumes look like complete opposites. The Colts lost enough games to win the Luck lottery, then cut Peyton Manning and once they settled on Luck, immediately installed him as the starter. No questions, no controversies. Manuel had to fight his way into the first round and is now competing for the Bills’ starting

job. While he has taken more snaps in training camp than his nearest competitor, Kevin Kolb, and will start Sunday, there’s a long way to go before new Bills coach Doug Marrone declares a winner. Kolb is trying to recover from a left knee injury he sustained last Saturday when he slipped on a wet rubber mat at practice last Saturday. Marrone said Kolb will dress for the game but may not play. He’s also not putting Manuel on
a play count. “I talked to the team today, I said listen, here’s what we’re going to do, if you’re healthy, in your mind you’re prepared to play the whole game,” Marrone said. “That’s how you have to look at it until I take you out.” What should be expected from the rookie? A big arm and his ability to run were the primary reasons Buffalo selected Manuel. But he’s been SEE COLTS, PAGE B2
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Eli Manning hit Victor Cruz for a 57-yard touchdown pass and the New York Giants beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 18-13 in the preseason opener for both teams Saturday night. Cruz slipped by William Gay and Troy Polamalu, then outran Ryan Clark to score on his first reception since signing a $43 million contract in the offseason. Manning finished 2 of 5 for 73 yards. The Giants scored on both drives the offensive starters were in the game. Ben Roethlisberger completed 4 of 8 passes for 36 yards for Pittsburgh, leading the Steelers to a field goal on their second possession. Rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones, the 17th overall pick in the draft, recovered a fumble in his professional debut. Running back Le’Veon Bell, the team’s second-round pick, did not play due to a sore left knee. Cruz is coming off a Pro Bowl season in which he established himself as one of the best deep threats in the game.

East Noble’s Alyn Clark watches her tee shot on the tenth hole on Saturday during the East Noble Invitational.
KENDALLVILLE — The post Katie Sharp era might not be so bad. Playing without the four-time state qualifier, who has now moved on to Michigan State, East Noble’s golf team came away with a fourth-place finish in Saturday’s East Noble Invitational. “Life after Katie might not be as bad as we thought,” said East Noble coach Richard Bentz. “This is my 30th year of doing this, and it might be more of a normal-type year. But we have decent golfers, just not the keeper low score we had. “We’re getting better each day and it would be really nice to come back Tuesday and beat that score.” The Knights will take part in the Snider Invitational on Tuesday, which will also be played at the

Tigers keep rolling with rout of Yanks BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Miguel Cabrera homered against the Yankees again and had three hits while playing on a bandaged leg and Torii Hunter connected and drove in four runs, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 9-3 victory over New York on Saturday. Anibal Sanchez (10-7) tossed seven easy innings against a Yankees lineup that was without Alex Rodriguez. Manager Joe Girardi said he was giving the third baseman a day off after he struck out three times in his season debut in the Bronx. Austin Jackson followed a four-hit, three-double night Friday with a homer and triple against the organization that drafted him. Don Kelly had a two-run single after Phil Hughes (4-11) was lifted in a four-run fifth to help the AL Central leaders win for the 17th time in 21 games since the All-Star break. Hunter and Kelly each had three of Detroit’s 17 hits and Victor Martinez had an RBI double. Lounging on a clubhouse couch Saturday morning, Cabrera was wearing a big, square Band-Aid over the spot on his left shin where he fouled one of two balls Friday night before homering off Mariano Rivera to send the game into
extra innings. Detroit lost that one to end a 12-game win streak, but the Tigers rolled along Saturday behind the hobbled Triple Crown winner. Cabrera singled in the first and connected in the third for his 35th of the year. He singled against Hughes in the fifth, slowly working his way around the bases and scoring on Kelly’s two-run single in a four-run inning. A-Rod, who bolted the ballpark before talking to the media Friday night, was not surprised that Cabrera was able to homer while in so much pain. “The guy is amazing. I mean that was a joke,” Rodriguez said Saturday. “Everyone thought he was dead — it was like the movies, you’ve got to shoot him to make sure he’s dead. I knew he wasn’t coming out of the game and said, ‘Don’t fall for that bait of limping around.’ He’s a dangerous guy.” Hunter homered off Joba Chamberlain in the sixth to make it 9-2. Fans booed the little-used reliever about as much as they jeered Hughes, who failed to get past the fifth inning for the ninth time in 22 starts this season. Jackson tripled over the head of center fielder Brett Gardner to start the game, and he scored on Hunter’s

PGA: Furyk to keep focus on his own game in final round FROM PAGE B1
“I’m comfortable with where I’m at,” Furyk said. “There’s a crowded leaderboard at the top, and instead of really viewing it as who is leading and who is not, I’m really viewing it as I need to go out there tomorrow and put together a good, solid round of golf. Fire a good number and hope it stacks up well.” Dufner was eight shots worse than his record-tying 63, but at least he got into the final group at the PGA Championship for the second time in three years. At the Atlanta Athletic Club in 2011, he had a four-shot lead with four holes to go and lost to Keegan Bradley AP in a playoff.

Ambrose wins pole at Glen Kesolowski gets WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — When rain cut short Sprint Cup practice at Watkins Glen International and he struggled to find balance in his car, Marcos Ambrose blasted his team in the garage. “I did lose my cool,” Ambrose said. “I didn’t feel like we made enough progress for the race and for qualifying. I just didn’t think it was feeling right. I just didn’t quite feel like we were good enough.” He is now. Ambrose shattered the Cup track record on Saturday to win the pole for today’s Cheez-It 355, turning a fast lap of 128.241 mph in the No. 9 Ford for Richard Petty Motorsports to easily eclipse the mark of 127.020 set a year ago by Juan Pablo Montoya. It was the 12th track record set this year in qualifying for the new Gen-6 car. For Ambrose, it was his third career pole and first at The Glen as he seeks his third straight victory at the historic road course in upstate New York. “It’s a very special moment for me. They did a good job to calm me down and not overreact to what I was saying, and it worked out really well,” Ambrose said of his crew. “We were catching up all day yesterday. “This has not been the best qualifying track for me,” Ambrose said. “I’m proud of today. Getting the pole was awesome. The car felt great. I think that bodes really well for tomorrow. If we can keep this form down, I think that our car will be good for the race, and when you have track position, that’s going to help us a lot.” Clint Bowyer qualified second and Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr. was third, followed by AJ
first win at Glen
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — Brad Keselowski has always had a fondness for Watkins Glen International, and that fondness just grew a bit more. The reigning Sprint Cup champion, who had finished second three times in the past two years at The Glen, led 49 laps in the Nationwide Zippo 200 and finally notched that elusive first career road course victory Saturday. “I don’t know, it’s hard to explain. I can remember coming here with my dad (in the 1990s), just always having a love affair with this track,” said Keselowski, runner-up to Marcos AP Ambrose in the past two Marcos Ambrose (9) drives during Glen, N.Y.

Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden grimaces in pain after falling to the floor in a game in 2009. A source says
Oden has told the Miami Heat that he will accept their contract offer and will formally sign in the coming days.
Heat taking chance on Oden INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Greg Oden has every reason to be frustrated and disappointed. The former No. 1 overall pick out of Ohio State has endured three micro fracture knee surgeries, the last in February 2012, and hasn’t played an NBA game since Dec. 5, 2009. This was not the career Oden envisioned. The former Portland Trail Blazer, however, was all smiles during a press conference at St. Vincent Sports Performance on Saturday. He will leave Indianapolis at Monday morning after signing a two-year, $2.173 million deal with the two-time defending champion Miami Heat. The second year is a player option. “After three years of being out, I’m just going to go out and do what I can,” Oden said. “If somehow (my body) says no, then it says no. But for me, I’m not even worried about that. Just go play and not even think about that. “I’ve signed on the dotted line, put it like that. I’ve got a contract. As y’all
can see this smile, I’ve got a contract. I’m excited.” There haven’t been many reasons to smile about Oden’s professional career. He’s been labeled the modern-day Sam Bowie — a bust selected instead of a Hall of Famer. Bowie was selected No. 2 in the 1984, one pick before Michael Jordan. Oden was taken one pick before three-time scoring champion Kevin Durant. He’s played a total of 82 NBA games and averaged 9.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks. “Two years ago … when I was in Portland, there were some dark times for me,” Oden said. “That two weeks after my last surgery … I was just like, ‘I don’t know what’s going on. What’s going to happen? Which way is it going to go?’ “Two weeks later I was like, ‘I’m coming back.’ That’s what I want to do.” Oden has accepted the new version of himself. He will no longer overwhelm opponents with sheer athleticism. He’ll be a role player off the bench on a team that
includes LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Ray Allen. Oden was thrilled to play three consecutive games of full-court, 4-on-4 last week. The goal is simple: play basketball again. “I’m 25 (years old) now … I’ve got an old body,” Oden said. “I understand. My body is not going to be (like it was) when I was 18 and able to run all day and jump over people. I can’t do that. It’s just not going to happen. My knees, the wear and tear, I understand that. “But I’m a play as hard as I can. I’m going to try to jump over people and I’m going to try to run all day. If my body lets me, I’ll do it.” St. Vincent Sports Performance has been the center of Oden’s rehab efforts. That’s where he trained to prepare for the 2007 draft with Mike Conley, Jr. and Carl Landry. Mario Chalmers, Gordon Hayward, Alec Burks and Patrick Patterson have also gone through the NBA pre-draft training program at the facility.

to win the race if we just didn’t do something dumb,” Keselowski said. “So I tried to not do something dumb the whole race.” Busch wasn’t so fortunate. He started second but lost control of his No. 54 Toyota, sliding sideways after apparently tapping the rear bumper of Hornish as they drove through the first turn, a downhill 90-degree right-hander. Busch’s spotter had just cleared him to make a move under Hornish. Busch briefly touched the Armco barrier that lines the track and was OK, but Mike Wallace, in midpack and unaware Busch was there, pulled right to make a pass and slammed the left front of Busch’s car.

Lewis following famous father OSU receivers no problem now
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — For Miami freshman Ray Lewis III, there is no escaping his father’s shadow. The kid doesn’t mind that reality, either. Ray Lewis’ name and image are on the fence that surrounds the Hurricanes’ practice field. His words are displayed along one of the walls of the team’s new locker room. His resume — two-time Super Bowl winner, 13-time Pro Bowler, quite possibly the greatest inspirational-speech-giver of all time — is known by just about anyone who follows football. Now his son is getting into the family business. Lewis III decided to follow his father’s college path and enroll at Miami, where he’s learning how to play defensive back and isn’t even listed on the team’s most recent depth chart. But there will be plenty of intrigue in how he develops with the Hurricanes, more because of his surname than anything else — though he insists that it’s not a burden to carry his father’s name around. “If I let it, I feel like it could,” Lewis III said Friday at the team’s media day. “But my mom did a great job raising me and I feel like she never let that get to me, either. I already know there’s going to be expectations. I know people are going to expect a lot. People are going to think
a lot. People are going to make assumptions before they even get to know me. But like I said, if I let that get to me, I wouldn’t be playing.” There’s no shortage of current Miami players with family trees that have deep, longstanding Hurricane roots. Defensive end Anthony Chickillo is a third-generation Hurricane, and his cousin Wyatt Chickillo is a freshman on this year’s team. Freshman quarterback Kevin Olsen is the brother of Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, who starred at Miami. Wide receiver Greg Golden, another freshman, is the nephew of Hurricanes head coach Al Golden — and the son of Greg Golden Sr., a Miami walk-on during the Howard Schnellenberger era. “It’s my dream school,” Greg Golden said. So for many Hurricanes, this season will be a family affair. And for Lewis III, it might be particularly special now that he’s at his mother’s alma mater and that his father — who retired after last season — will have more time than ever to see him play. Ray Lewis was around the Hurricanes at times during the summer, when they were going through 7-on-7 drills to get ready for training camp, and his son said he savored the experience of having his dad

around his new team. “The one thing I can tell you about Ray-Ray is he is a learner,” Al Golden said. “He is a learner. He is a football kid, he really is. I mean, everything you teach him, he learns and he
improves. Now, he’s got a long way to go because he doesn’t have the number of reps over his whole career playing that position and the comfort level, but he’s a learner and just a guy who figures things out.”
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A year ago they shared space in coach Urban Meyer’s doghouse. Now Ohio State’s wide receivers are team leaders. Inexperienced and unproven in 2012, they’re veterans this time around. It’s a question of maturity, assistant coach Zach Smith said of the improvement in his charges. “Just a year ago I told everyone that it was a young group that needed to grow up and kind of develop and get better. That’s something they’ve done,” he said after Saturday’s practice. “Fast forward a year and they’ve had trials, tribulations, had hard times, had great successes, and so they have grown and learned from mistakes to the point where they’re able to be a mature group.” They’ve come a long way. Meyer didn’t hide his feelings about the pass-catchers in the spring of 2012, his first time on the field with them after taking the job. He said they didn’t work hard enough. He said they weren’t prepared. He said there were no big-play guys in the lot. Smith conceded that the coaching staff was “almost in panic mode” at the receivers’ inability to stretch
the field, to even run routes or be a viable option in Meyer’s spread attack. Gradually, they came around. Corey Brown had 60 catches, Devin Smith 30 and Evan Spencer 12 last year as a problem area became a strength. They proved they could make big plays, such as Smith’s memorable one-handed grab early in the year and his 39-yard gain in the final minute that helped preserve Ohio State’s perfect season against Purdue. More of the same will be expected this year. Instead of wondering who’ll make a big catch, it seems quarterback Braxton Miller now has several possibilities. “We’ve got a lot of guys on this team with speed,” Devin Smith said. “That’s what (coach Meyer) wants — guys who can stretch the field. We’ve certainly got that.” If 2012 was a trial by fire, the upcoming one is simpler, more comfortable for them all. “It’s so much smoother. Everybody’s flowing faster,” said Spencer, son of former Ohio State and NFL running back and assistant coach Tim Spencer. “We all know what our assignments are and we’re reacting instead of trying to think.”
Vols convert ex-volleyball player KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates and Jimmy Graham have shown it’s possible for former basketball players to thrive in football as tight ends. Tennessee wants to see whether an ex-volleyball player can make a successful transition. Woody Quinn quit football after his freshman year in high school to pursue a volleyball career that led him to Pepperdine. But he often wondered what might have been and eventually switched back to his first love. Now he’s on
the verge of completing an improbable journey from a Malibu, Calif., volleyball court to Neyland Stadium. “It was hard for me to watch football, thinking ‘I wish I could do that,’ or ‘I think I could do that,’” Quinn said. After transferring from Pepperdine to California Baptist, where he played volleyball for one year, Quinn talked his way onto the Santa Ana (Calif.) College football team and showed enough potential to earn a scholarship offer from Tennessee. Quinn is seeking to
replace Oakland Raiders sixth-round draft pick Mychal Rivera as the Volunteers’ main tight end. Quinn, a 6-foot-6, 253-pound junior, is behind junior Brendan Downs on the depth chart. As a former volleyball player, Quinn certainly has leaping ability. He also possesses the athleticism required of the tight end position in today’s game. Quinn has seen how Gonzalez, who played basketball and football at California, has become a Hall of Fame level NFL tight end with the Atlanta Falcons

And Gates, a former Kent State basketball player, develop into a Pro Bowl performer with the San Diego Chargers and how Graham has achieved stardom with the New Orleans Saints after playing four years of basketball and only one year of football at Miami. “There seems to be a lot of interest in that sort of athlete at that position — a goal-line jumper and a guy who can beat you with his feet, let alone having a 6-6 frame that you can put some weight on,” said Santa Ana coach Geoff Jones.
Keeping People Connected
Josh Reddick hit two home runs, a day after connecting three times for Oakland, but the Toronto Blue Jays got shots from Jose Bautista and Jose Reyes to beat the Athletics 5-4 Saturday. Reddick had homered only five times this season before launching a trio of longballs Friday night in a 14-6 romp. Reddick kept up the power surge with a two-run drive off Mark Buehrle in the second inning and a leadoff home run in the ninth against Casey Janssen. It was Reddick’s fourth career multihomer game. Oakland began the day in a virtual tie with Texas for the AL West lead. The A’s lost for the seventh time in nine games. Buehrle (8-7) won his third straight decision. He allowed three runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. Janssen, Toronto’s sixth pitcher, worked a nervy ninth for his 21st save in 23 opportunities. Dodgers 5, Rays 0 Zack Greinke scattered six hits through 6 1-3 innings, Adrian Gonzalez homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Tampa Bay despite the Rays’ hidden ball trick. Skip Schumaker added four hits for the NL West leaders. Tampa Bay lost its fourth straight, matching its longest skid this year. Most everything went well for the Dodgers, except when Tampa Bay got tricky. Rays third baseman Evan Longoria tagged out an unsuspecting Juan Uribe when he lifted his foot off the bag while chatting with coach Tim Wallach in the
fourth inning. The rarely seen play occurred after A.J. Ellis hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly, with all three runners moving up as center fielder Wil Myers threw toward the plate. First baseman James Loney wound up with the ball behind the mound. He flipped it to shortstop Yunel Escobar, who then quickly tossed the ball to Longoria while no one seemed to be looking. Longoria stood behind Uribe and waited for the right moment to trap him. Umpire Angel Hernandez was right on the play, watching the whole time, and made the out call. Greinke (10-3) struck out seven and walked one. The 2009 AL Cy Young winner is 6-1 with a 2.49 ERA in his 10 home starts. Giants 3, Orioles 2 Hunter Pence hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the sixth inning as San Francisco’s stagnant lineup finally got to Wei-Yin Chen. Chris Davis hit his majors-leading 42nd home run for the Orioles leading off the eighth against Santiago Casilla, then grounded out against closer Sergio Romo to end it with a runner on first. Nick Markakis added three hits, but Baltimore had its three-game winning streak snapped on a day of missed opportunities. Marlins 1, Braves 0 The Atlanta Braves’ 14-winning streak ended with a loss to the last-place Miami Marlins, who scored the lone run on reliever Jordan Walden’s wild pitch in the ninth inning. Miami stopped its own six-game skid.
The Braves fell one victory shy of tying the 2000 team for the franchise’s longest winning streak since the 1891 Boston Beaneaters won 18 straight. Adeiny Hechavarria led off the Miami ninth with a triple and scored on the wild pitch by Walden (4-2). Rangers 5, Astros 4 Alex Rios starred in his Texas debut, tying the game with an RBI triple in the eighth inning and scoring the go-ahead run to help the Rangers to a comeback victory. Elvis Andrus added a two-run homer as the Rangers extended their winning streak to a seasonhigh six games. Rios, who was acquired from the Chicago White Sox on Friday, tripled off reliever Lucas Harrell (5-13) in the eighth inning to tie it after a double by A.J. Pierzynski. Rios then slid feet first into home on a ball hit by Mitch Moreland, scoring when catcher Jason Castro dropped the ball for an error to put Texas up 5-4. Red Sox 5, Royals 3 Jacoby Ellsbury matched a career high with four hits and drove in a pair of runs to lead the Boston Red Sox. Ellsbury had RBI doubles in the fourth and sixth innings and also stole his major league-leading 42nd base. It was his 10th career four-hit game and second this season. The Red Sox scored four runs in the fourth. Will Middlebrooks, who was just recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket, fueled the rally with a two-run single. Stephen Drew drove in a run with a double, extending his hitting streak to a seasonbest 11 games.

SPORTS BRIEFS • More than 1,000 attend funeral of Texas A&M player COLLEYVILLE, Texas (AP) — The mother of a Texas A&M defensive lineman and his younger brother told her sons goodbye in front of a packed church Saturday, almost two weeks after they and another teen were killed in a car accident in New Mexico. Texas A&M football coach Kevin Sumlin and about 75 of his players and staff were among the more than 1,000 people who attended the funeral for defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu, 19, and his brother, 13-year old Andrew “Lolo” Uhatafe. Tulima Uhatafe and other family members remembered the teens as humble boys who brought smiles to everyone they met. “The heavenly father gave me those beautiful sons for me to take care of them,” Uhatafe said as she wiped away tears. “To teach them (how) to be humble.” A line of family members greeted Texas A&M football players as they walked into the service, which was held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Fort Worth suburb of Colleyville. “It’s very touching for our family. And for (the team) coming to pay their respects is very much appreciated,” said Tupou Taufa, a cousin of the brothers. Alan Cannon, a spokesman for Texas A&M’s athletics department, couldn’t confirm whether star quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel had planned to attend. He wasn’t seen at the service. The basketball gym normally used for the church’s services filled up with mourners. A screen projector showed the service, held in both English and Tongan, to those in the back.
Doctors advise Castroneves to sit out stock car event SAO PAULO (AP) — Doctors ordered IndyCar points leader Helio Castroneves to skip a stock car event in Brazil after he crashed hard in practice. Castroneves wasn’t seriously injured when the brakes on his car malfunctioned and he crashed into a tire barrier on Friday, but doctors said Saturday that the three-time Indy 500 winner was still too sore to endure the street-circuit race in the city of Ribeirao Preto on Sunday. “Clinically he is doing very well,” Dr. Dino Altmann said. “But he is not really physically fit to race a stock car in this street race. It would be really painful for him going through the bumps here of the track here. It’s not worth it.” Castroneves sustained cuts to his shins and had pain in his neck after the head-on crash at the end of a long straight on the temporary street circuit. He left the car on his own but was put in an ambulance while still at the track after reporting the back and neck pain. “I was conscious at all times but I was a bit worried because of the neck pain,” the Brazilian driver said. “But thankfully tests showed no serious injuries. My ribs are still sore. It would be painful just to buckle the seat belt.”
Ex-Bears assistant Tice hits Pick Six for $100,000 DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) — Mike Tice hit it big betting on the horses at Del Mar. The former Minnesota Vikings coach and Chicago Bears assistant had the lone winning ticket for the Pick Six on Thursday. Tice correctly picked the winners of six consecutive races at the seaside track with a ticket that cost $128. The payout netted him $100,796. One of the winning horses was named Tebowing. Two of the races were won by the smallest of margins, a neck and a head. Tice has been unemployed since December, when he was fired as offensive coordinator by the Bears. He’s a longtime racing fan.
Sprained foot sidelines Te’o SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chargers rookie linebacker Manti Te’o will sit out this week with a sprained right foot and miss San Diego’s game at Chicago on Thursday. Te’o wore a walking boot while watching Saturday morning’s practice. “Manti has a foot sprain and he will be out this week and I will give you any further updates as the week goes on, or next week,” coach Mike McCoy said. “But he will be out for the week.” The team refused to make Te’o available to reporters, saying he would speak Monday. McCoy, a rookie head coach, has been loath to share injury news. When asked how Te’o, a starter who played briefly in Thursday’s 31-10 loss to Seattle, sustained the injury, McCoy balked. “I’m not … he has a foot sprain,” McCoy said. “I will say that and move on from there.” McCoy said the injury was diagnosed after the game. However, when asked about injuries at Friday’s news conference, the coach said: “As of right now, no one has reported any serious injuries from last night. I haven’t sat down with our trainer yet, but I will in a little bit.” This is the second time in camp that McCoy’s information on injured players has turned out to be less than forthcoming.

Our View •
Food safety law: More teeth needed? When we buy food at bake sales, church suppers, youth events and other gatherings we generally don’t question the safety of what we are eating. Well, we might have second thoughts if something didn’t smell or look right … But in general, the food looks, smells and tastes great and The Indiana State we consume it with gusto. The Food Protection Health Department is Division of the Indiana State holding a virtual public Health Department is holding virtual public hearing to hearing to determine if adetermine if not-for-profit not-for-profit organi- organizations serving food to or the public should zations serving food to members be required to demonstrate members or the public knowledge of safe food The comments should be required to handling. will assist with recommendemonstrate knowledge dations to be made to the legislative health and of safe food handling. state finance committee per Senate Enrolled Act 457. According to Bernie Sukala, environmental health specialist with the DeKalb County Health Department, if the not-for-profit organization serves food 15 days or less per year they are exempt from any kind of local inspection, as stated in SEA 190. If the law is changed, it probably would require not-forprofit vendors to know how to sanitize equipment, what temperatures food should be held at, what to do if a worker is sick, etc. “Some of it is common sense, but some people don’t have that,” Sukala said. He noted that some nonprofits call the health department and proactively seek that information, even though it is not required that they know it. According to a press release, the Indiana State Department of Health will be “reviewing laws and rules governing exceptions to the requirements for certified food handlers and rules on the number of days per year these entities are exempt from inspection, and present recommendations to clarify the existing laws to the health and finance commission before Oct. 31.” The state department of health’s survey at surveymonkey.com/s/6577K5V will be open through Aug. 31. Since 2002 the state has required all restaurants and other “food establishments” to have a certified food handler on their staff to oversee food safety. Passed in 2007, SEA 190 changes the definition of “food establishment.” As long as certain conditions are met, vendors at farmer’s markets and roadside stands are exempt, as are most not-for-profits. We urge people to take the time to access the survey and provide their input. Our gut feeling is “no thanks” to more regulation.

It’s a sad day for education in Indiana
To the editor: It is a sad day for public education as the changing of A-F school grades by the Indiana Department of Education during the Tony Bennett administration is being revealed. The IDOE presented their case for improved accountability in education through numerous legal and policy changes. Parents were told they would be able to easily see the performance of schools with the A-F grading system. It’s been a rocky road and now it seems it has led to a loss of integrity due to the actions of the previous state school superintendent. Changing a grade for a charter school because of political reasons puts at risk all the A-F grading data given to public schools. When, where and what other data was misrepresented for the appearance of being successful? Does the end justify the means? We support State Superintendent Glenda Ritz’s investigation into this matter and hope she can restore her department’s reputation for all schools in Indiana. Our profession can handle the tasks we have been given, but only if the IDOE is fair and consistent. Please support our children and our schools. Alan Middleton Superintendent of Schools Prairie Heights Community Schools Mike Travis President of the Prairie Heights Education Association
Use tax abatements to help workers To the editor: Few if any of your readers would disagree with the premise of the Aug. 6 “Our View” entitled “Jobs welcome, but better pay is needed.” But why didn’t you focus on the one local policy that might be
used as leverage to get better pay, namely tax abatement? Indiana’s tax abatement law is so badly written that it doesn’t even define what an “employee” is. That opens the door for companies to count temporary and part-time hires as employees for the purpose of meeting the job targets that they promised when they asked for their abatements. But local governments are completely free to use their home rule power to demand that the promised jobs be full-time with vacation and benefits. That’s why I’ve offered an amendment to every tax abatement resolution to come before the Auburn City Council (with the exception of resolutions for tax-credit housing) to define an employee as someone averaging no less than 35 hours per week with health insurance, pension benefits and paid vacation. Of course my amendment has never been adopted. The council’s majority always whines and whimpers that if we start defining things, then companies will want to locate elsewhere. That fear is the direct result of the lack of legal exactitude that our business-dominated General Assembly built into the tax abatement law. The legislature didn’t write the law to protect workers and ordinary taxpayers. It wrote the law for corporations that don’t want to pay their employees a cent more than they have to. But with a little backbone, Auburn and other communities could start to push back against the corporate squeeze on workers. The law allows us to do that. Don’t get me wrong. I think that Indiana’s tax abatement law is vague, arbitrary, capricious and contrary to the equal privileges and immunities clause of the Indiana Constitution. I would love for the courts to throw it out. But until they do, I’m willing to try to use it to get a better break for local workers. I wish that the KPC newspapers would back me up on that.

Pence stand against Medicaid may harm health providers COLUMBUS, Ind. —On Aug. 24, 2001, a French stuntman named Thierry Devaux tried to bungee jump off of Lady Liberty’s torch in the New York harbor, and ended up dangling on his parasail from the statue’s wrist. It was a whimsical moment that delighted tourists, cable news producers and viewers across the globe. New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani would call the thrillseeking “Terry Do” an “idiot” as the moment disappeared into the late summer haze and, a few weeks later, a maelstrom. That, of course, would be the Sept. 11 terror attacks just across the harbor. “Terry Do” became terror pilots, the World Trade Center towers fell, and everything changed. Indiana’s political and policy establishment has been riveted by a series of emails from former Gov. Mitch Daniels and Tony Bennett, former state superintendent of public instruction, that has led to an investigation in the A to F school grading program. Earlier this year, everyone was obsessed with Gov. Mike Pence’s income tax cut. The real billion dollar story — the maelstrom on the brink — is Obamacare and the impact it is going to have on hundreds of thousands of poorer Hoosiers, tens of thousands of families, the state’s community hospital systems, local safety net organizations, the more than $10 billion Indiana lawmakers may leave on the table, and the next generation of state and local budgets. There are so many facets of this story that we don’t know about, that this is essentially a call to action for the various news organizations, reporters and opinion shapers to go out into their communities and
into the Indiana Statehouse and agencies and begin to ask the hard, penetrating questions. Right now, we have about a thimble full of relevant information on this topic and there is an ocean of data to process. So much of the debate over Obamacare has taken on sharp, partisan and ideological trimmings. But the fact is, it’s the law of the land and it is going to require pragmatism to deal with the myriad of impacts. Right now, Indiana’s leaders are preoccuHOWEY pied with mostly POLITICAL denouncing and REPORT Obamacare calling for a repeal. U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd Brian Howey of Howe, has talked about it in the context of a potential government shutdown rather than fund Obamcare, though he says there is plenty of time to negotiate. And in Galesburg, Ill., on July 24, President Obama reiterated his stance that the reform would move forward. There was an election about nine months ago, and American voters reelected Obama and a Democratic Senate, while Hoosiers sent Democrat Joe Donnelly to the upper chamber. Pence and those who loathe Obamacare can wish and wish and wish it to go away. But Republican U.S. Sen. Dan Coats has told me that a repeal is unlikely. Others talk about repeal after Obama leaves office, but the entire medical and
Pence has vowed never to expand traditional Medicaid … Indiana then leaves about $10 billion in federal funding (which Hoosier taxpayers contribute) on the table … What happens to local hospitals should this occur?
• insurance industry will be settled into the new law and there’s no guarantee the next president will be a Republican. Pence is seeking a waiver from U.S. Health and Human Services to extend the Healthy Indiana Plan for the 37,000 now enrolled. He wants to use it as an expansion. It appears as if Indiana’s leaders are putting all the eggs into repeal or the Healthy Indiana Plan expansion. But multiple sources who have worked on health issues in Indiana tell me it is unlikely the federal government will accept the HIP as an expansion vehicle and even if they do, it will be dramatically changed. It would have to in order to absorb up to 400,000 more enrollees. Several sources have characterized the dynamic between Pence and the Obama administration as a historic “game of chicken.” Pence has vowed never to expand traditional Medicaid. The option in that scenario, is that Indiana then leaves about $10 billion in federal funding (which Hoosier taxpayers contribute) on the table.
Question for local reporters and editors? What happens to your local hospitals should this occur? My sources say that local medical community leaders are walking a tight rope. Many are conservatives skeptical of Obamacare. But the loss of Medicaid funding poses a huge dilemma. They are reluctant to alienate Pence at this point. What happens to the urban medical centers which get the “disproportionate share hospital” payments for serving large indigent populations? This would include Wishard in Indianapolis, Parkview in Fort Wayne and Methodist in northern Lake County. I have Republican sources in the medical community and at the Statehouse who acknowledge, “That’s a valid concern.” Some believe it will lead to a crisis and cost taxpayers more in the long run. Family and Social Services Administration Commissioner Debra Minott suggested in June that without a Medicaid expansion, “We will be making sure they are aware of the community health centers in their communities, free clinics that are available in multiple places around the state and other safety net-type resources.” Local reporters should be asking their community safety net organizations about their current needs and ability to expand services. There is so much work to do, so many questions to ask, and our leaders need to have a candid, pragmatic discussion with citizens. Virtually none of this is happening now.

Did I happen to mention I like big dogs? For 38 years, I’ve owned a backyard but had no idea what to do with it. For most of that time, my little plot of weeds has found no higher purpose than serving as a glorified dog bathroom. Given the alternative, that’s really not so bad. This summer, however, the county assessor inexplicably decided that my little piece of planet Earth is worth $4,000 more than last year. That inspired me to start thinking of a better use for my fractional acre of paradise. Before I could strain my noggin, life sent me a perfect answer — a bigger dog. My animal-loving wife, Betsy, and I — the couple who never go looking for a pooch but always seem to have at least one — are in the midst of a six-month baby-sitting gig for a 100-pound mostly St. Bernard. Gracie bounded into
our lives in early June and is sticking around until at least Christmas, when her owners come home. For the past couple of years, we’d been down to only one mutt, Betsy’s beagle-Jack Russell mix. DAVE After three decades with a KURTZ pair of Labrador retrievers, I’d become fond of bigger canines. I must have said that out loud, and I guess someone upstairs was listening — maybe a little too well. Needless to say, Gracie can fill up the backyard faster than any dog who came before her, if you know what I mean. Suddenly, we have an endless
supply of fertilizer, but that’s not the reason I found another good purpose for the big, empty space behind the house. While my wife was picking up posies at the garden store, my eye fell on the tomato plants. It’s been a few years since I tried my green thumb, but apparently past experience hadn’t discouraged me. I walked out toting a couple of little, green sprouts with labels that promised succulent delights in only 60 days. So far, the garden gods are rewarding me for something, because gorgeous, juicy red fruit is popping out all over. It’s been good to see that our backyard can grow something that’s actually desirable. Until now, summer has been a time for me to battle with unruly plants ranging from stubborn, ivy-like Creeping Charlie to woody beasts that can’t be killed no

• matter how many times you chop them down. But my luck continues to change for the better. Finally my angelic wife, who’s nearly too kind to pull a dandelion, has decided after several years that the fast-growing monstrosity in the fence line
might not really be a tree, after all. “You never thought you’d hear me say this …” she began one afternoon. I tensed up, dreading what might come next: “I’m finally kicking you out”? “… that thing in the side yard has to come down,” she finished. Whew! She still hasn’t wised up about me, but she has come to her senses about the landscaping. Too bad she waited until the “thing” was 25 feet tall. Now, I can spend the rest of my summer working on a plan to get rid of Tree-zilla. Maybe it will involve a rope and a really strong 100-pound dog.

Keeping the Washington Post an independent newspaper The masthead of the Washington Post contains these words: “An Independent Newspaper.” When word spread that Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon, was buying the Post for $250 million, attention focused on the word “newspaper.” Bezos once predicted that printed systems for delivering information would probably disappear in 20 years. But even the wizard of online commerce not suggest COKIE ROBERTS could specific ways rescue an STEVEN ROBERTS to enterprise that’s been losing money for seven years. “I don’t want to imply I have a worked-out plan,” Bezos told a Post reporter. “This will be uncharted terrain and it will require experimentation.” The word “independent,” however, is as critical as the word “newspaper.” The two are obviously connected, and any news outlet has to attract income in order to survive. Don Graham, the Post’s chairman, admits that he failed to solve the economic challenges of departing advertisers and shrinking subscribers. “I did want to find a way to make a Washington Post that was healthy and prosperous,” he told blogger Erik Wemple. “I didn’t do it and I disappointed myself.” (Full disclosure: Graham has been a good friend since college and Steve regularly reviews books for the Post.) But the concept of independence goes beyond income and relates to the ownership structure. If a paper is part of a publically traded company, the pressures to be “healthy and prosperous” are severely increased by the expectations of the marketplace. Investors measure success by two metrics: profit and stock price. And while the Graham family retains a controlling interest in the company, they have sold stock to the public since 1971. They are not immune from the demands of their stakeholders, and as losses mounted, so did those demands. Katharine Weymouth, Don’s niece and the current publisher, says the family was forced to reach an unhappy conclusion: “If journalism is the mission, given the pressures to cut costs and make profits, maybe (a publically traded company) is not the best place for the Post.” Enter Bezos, who is buying the Post by himself and taking it private. He does not have to answer to anybody, on Wall Street or anywhere else, and the purchase price represents about 1 percent of his net worth. Now that’s independence. Ted Leonsis, who like Bezos made a fortune as an internet pioneer, told the Post that the deal “allows the paper to be invested in and transformed outside of the
The beginning of the end Wednesday will mark the first day of school for those of us in East Noble School Corporation. Like every other first day since my youngest son started school, wife ONLINE my and I will COMMENTS line the three boys up and get James Tew a picture of their smiling faces before they head off for a new school year — and perhaps, shortly after, a photo of a dejected black lab whose playmates are leaving him once again to continue their education. But this will be the last gathering of all three for the first day photo. Next year, my oldest will be heading off to college. I know parenting is a lifetime occupation — they will always be our children, even as they become adults — but it seems like a lot will be changing, sooner rather than later, in this upcoming year of lasts for my oldest: last first day of school, last school dance, last high school baseball game, last day of school, etc. It seems like this journey began just yesterday, when, thanks to some miscommunication from the doctor’s office, I got to be the one to tell my wife of four months that we were going to become parents.

after our first anniversary — now more than 17 years ago — Josh arrived. With Brian and Tim following in fairly quick succession, it seemed many days like our lives would always be full of children. But the early days when using the potty chair was a major accomplishment to be celebrated gave way to preschool and elementary school. Baseball games in the backyard and me taking all three boys on in driveway basketball gave way to youth sports and eventually high school sports. Learning to ride a bike has now been replaced by teenage car drivers. (The driveway basketball games still take place, but the days when I could take on all three boys are long past. When my youngest gets his next growth spurt, I probably will be the last kid picked on the court.) Of course, endings will bring new beginnings for the boys: college, careers,
families of their own and all the other things that come with the great, grand adventure we call real life. And in five years, when Shannon and I become full-fledged empty-nesters, it will bring a chance to revisit the honeymoon/ newlywed days that were cut short when Josh arrived. Let’s face it: Life is meant to move on. As much as I sometimes miss the days of the boys toddling around the house, I have no desire to ever change their diapers again. So I prepare for the endings, and look forward to the beginnings. And every now and then, miss the little boys I had even as I celebrate the young men they have become.

• harsh light of Wall Street demands.” The problems that the Grahams are encountering now were actually presaged more than 13 years ago by Katharine Graham, Don’s mother, who preceded him as publisher. In an article called “Journalistic family values” in the Wall Street Journal, she made the argument for private ownership of news outlets. “It seems,” she said, “that certain attributes essential to quality are more easily provided by families than by public companies.” Yes, family-owned businesses are “vitally interested in profits,” she wrote, but not only in profits. Information is not just a commodity, it’s a core element of a healthy democracy. It’s also very expensive to produce, and private owners have more freedom than public companies to invest in quality newsgathering. Katharine Graham inherited the Post — and her value system — from her father, Eugene Meyer, who, she wrote, “felt the Washington Post should be prepared to make financial sacrifices, if necessary, for the public good. People at the company today share his view that we have a responsibility to put long-term service to readers ahead of short-term financial gain.” It’s that kind of service that the Grahams could no longer afford to provide. And that’s why they sought a buyer like Bezos, who could. But independence is not just about money. It’s also about integrity, and the willingness and ability to hold powerful forces to account. As Katharine Graham wrote, “family ownership provides the independence that is sometimes required to withstand governmental pressure and preserve freedom of the press.” Exhibit A: The Post’s refusal to crack under intense White House pressure during its investigation of Watergate. At the time, Katharine Graham recalled, “Friends of the Nixon administration filed challenges to our television licenses in Florida. These cost a fortune to defend and caused our stock to plummet. A company without a very strong ownership may have found these costs too great to bear.” The Post is truly “An Independent Newspaper.” Jeff Bezos has to understand the profound importance of those words and provide both the cash and the courage to keep it that way.

Youth For Christ team serves in Alaska BY OCTAVIA LEHMAN
AUBURN — The camp didn’t require reservations, and if children didn’t come back the next day, it was OK. For the Project Serve team of northeast Indiana, their visitors were guests of honor and welcome at anytime. They were there to serve. Project Serve, a group from Youth For Christ of Northeast Indiana, traveled to Anchorage, Alaska, to work with a local Youth For Christ program July 5-14. Kim Harlow, the teen director for YFC, coordinated the project through her friend in Alaska. Six students and five adults represented Project Serve, some of them joining from outside Indiana. The team’s main goal was to lead a day camp for five days in the east Anchorage community of Mountain View. The Mountain View community is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the nation, according to Harlow. Nearly 90 languages are spoken in the community. “The city has a large refuge population,” Harlow said. Joint base Elemendorf-Richardson, a merged Air Force and Army military base, also is in Anchorage. The team’s camp took place at Mountain View Park, built by the Mountain View Lions Club. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, the team led a day camp for area children. Harlow said the camp was open to children in the neighborhood at anytime. With the park in the vicinity of many apartment neighborhoods, the children were able to walk to the camp. “Some children we would only see once,” Harlow said. Some of the children who came routinely brought their parents to camp too. With the Alaskan summer

weather, daylight lasted for nearly 20 hours. Many people from the community came to the park at night and the Project Serve team provided activities for guests. The teens in the group played basketball, four-square and other outdoor games with
children. During the camp, Project Serve made wordless bracelets. Wordless bracelets are evangelistic tools representing aspects of the Christian faith. The bracelets bare colorful beads such as black, red and
white. Black represents sin and white represents forgiveness. “We tried tying everything into the wordless bracelet,” Harlow said. “We wanted to share Jesus with them.” Harlow said she was surprised to meet people who
had never heard of Jesus. “They had heard his name, but they said, ‘I’ve never understood why he died,’” Harlow said. For the final day of camp, Project Serve held a Party in the Park, for children and their families in the Mountain View community. The group made nearly 200 bags of popcorn and opened a photo booth. During the party, the group served 500 hot dogs to guests. The group made it clear that they would only be there for the week, though, Harlow said she hopes they can make it an annual trip. “Some of the children asked us, ‘Are you coming back next summer?’” Harlow said. YFC of Northeast Indiana operates middle and high school programs in DeKalb, Noble, Steuben and LaGrange counties. The organization’s headquarters are in Auburn.

This cross carries a message Necklace way of sharing God’s love BY BOB BUTTGEN firstname.lastname@example.org
LIGONIER — One of the hottest pieces of faith-based jewelry has caught on in Noble County, thanks to a chance encounter at an interstate rest stop. The “God Loves You” crosses are made with copper wire and four horseshoe nails, and attached to a necklace. Dozens of websites offer various versions of the small crosses that carry an important message. In Ligonier, Dr. Robert Stone and his wife Lura introduced the crosses to the congregation at their church, Ligonier United Methodist Church. The newly retired “Doc” Stone has started producing the crosses in the workshop of his Ligonier home. At last count, he was up to 175 crosses made. The Stones were returning from a trip when they stopped at a rest area in southern Indiana. At the same time, six vans full of mission workers from an Iowa church also pulled into the parking lot. They were returning from a mission trip in Kentucky. Lura Stone started up a conversation with one of the men in the group, and they shared stories about mission trips, as the Stone’s daughter, Rev. Jean Ness, and many other family members have taken part in church-related mission trips. The man from Iowa asked Stone if he could give her a gift. He took out the cross and presented it to her, with the words, “God Loves You.” The tradition that follows these crosses states they are supposed to be given away with that message. Or, if the recipient wants to keep it, they must make a donation to a charity or nonprofit group.

members of the team. Soon, many more of the crosses were in the hands of other members of the congregation, and they have spread out over the West Noble area and beyond. And while many people gave theirs away, many also kept their cross and made a donation to a mission or related cause of their church. It was estimated that $1,500 has been donated to worthy causes because of the crosses made by Stone. A special cross that Stone made was put into a frame and will be part of the Community Mission Auction, set for Saturday at the Noble County Community Foundation in Ligonier.

When the mission team returned, each person had a story about how they gave away their crosses, and how they delivered the message that went with them. Stone had a surprise for the mission team, as he handed new crosses to all 24

Dad who refuses to part with • ‘treasures’
DEAR ABBY: I am fed up with my father’s hoarding. Junk is piled everywhere, and our cat has twice gotten hurt in the piles. If there is a spare corner, junk is thrown in it. When I try to say anything, Dad gets defensive over his “stuff,” and my mother defends his “pack rat” ways. She says they are his things, not mine. I’m extremely embarrassed when friends, relatives or neighbors visit. I have offered to help clean, but he refuses to get rid of anything. What do you do when someone doesn’t believe this is a problem? — EMBARRASSED IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR EMBARRASSED: There is nothing you can say that will fix your father’s problem because it’s a psychological disorder. Even if he was willing to do something about his hoarding, it would take the assistance of a mental health professional and a support group to help him let go of his “stuff” because it would be like letting go of a part of himself. If you’re still living at home with your parents, all you can do is keep your own space as neat and organized as possible and not allow your father’s problem to affect your self-esteem. Once you can afford to live on your own — move. After that, if your father’s hoarding continues to the point it becomes a danger to your parents’ health or a fire hazard, quietly notify the fire department or health department, which then may be able to intervene. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I had a beautiful baby boy four months ago. Since then, he has admitted that he married me only to have a child. My husband says he “cares for me,” but he’s not in love with me. Still, he provides for all my needs and I don’t want a divorce. I know I’ll be happy enough. My friend is telling me I am doing a disservice to my little one because he will never learn to love a woman. Am I harming my baby? — NEW MOM IN TEXAS DEAR MOM: I can’t see how you are harming your child. If you are a loving, attentive mother, your baby boy will love you unconditionally. Your friend may feel you are short-changing YOURSELF because she doesn’t understand that you’re willing to settle for financial security and forgo romantic love. However, if you are truly happy with this arrangement, your friend should be less judgmental. DEAR ABBY: I was diagnosed with breast cancer at a very young age and underwent a double mastectomy. Fortunately, I am cancer-free. My husband was totally turned off by my appearance, and hasn’t touched me sexually in many years. I have no desire to leave him, but I’m wondering how many other women have gone through the same thing. We have lost so much of ourselves, and when we need our husbands the most, they turn the other way! — ANONYMOUS IN WISCONSIN DEAR ANONYMOUS: I strongly suspect that you’re not the only woman this has happened to. We live in a society that has sexualized breasts to the point that it has caused many men to forget there are real PEOPLE attached to them. While a life-threatening illness has caused some males to turn away, it has reminded other men what is really important in life. I am sorry your husband is one of the former. I am throwing your question open to my readers. I am sure the responses it generates will be educational for everyone.

Use hamburger, tomatoes, macaroni to make goulash The seventh month of 2013 is almost history already. Another year going by way too fast! I want the boys to pull the onions out of our garden today. Don’t know if the saying is true about not letting the August sun hit your onions (for storage). Seems by that time of year they are ready to be pulled and hung up to dry for storage anyways. We are enjoying sweet corn too now. With corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, red beets, lettuce, green beans and peppers in the garden meal planning is much easier. The grocery bill also comes down a lot at this time of year. One evening we had sweet corn, sliced tomatoes, cucumber salad and sliced cheese. Another evening we had red potatoes, green beans, fried zucchini, sliced tomatoes, cucumber salad and sliced cheese. Kevin, 7, likes to husk the corn but wants me to clean it. He said he stays so busy with all his jobs like picking up eggs, husking corn, giving the grass that the boys mowed to the horses and feeding the dogs.

DEAR BRUCE: My wife is in college. We receive approximately $11,000 annually from a Stafford loan capped at 8 1/4 percent. We have about $7,000 left over that we have been investing in several mutual funds. We own our home free and clear, but we have a $24,000 balance on our home equity loan at 5 percent. My wife and I are in our early 20s and our income is $36,000. Are we doing the right thing? — Reader, via email DEAR READER: Let me disabuse you immediately of the circumstance. You don’t own the home free and clear. You have a $24,000 mortgage, which is what a home equity loan is. It sounds like you are doing very well, but don’t kid yourself. You don’t own

I know how they must feel losing both parents in two years’ time. Life seems emptier and it always feels like someone is missing at family gatherings. Life goes on and we must accept God’s ways. Trusting and believing in “Him” helps to make the burdens in life easier. The funeral will be on Saturday. We have plans to attend. The annual Coblentz reunion was just held this month in Wisconsin. It was close to where Uncle Joe and Melvin live. We regretted that we weren’t able to make it there once again. A lady from our church district is taking orders for peaches. She has the truck deliver them all to the houses for our church district. So peaches will soon be here to can and freeze. Today we will make more dill pickles. After this batch I will have enough
pickles for the year. I’ll share my recipe for goulash!
Goulash • 1 pound hamburger • 1 small onion, chopped • 8 medium tomatoes, peeled and chunked • 2 cups macaroni • 1 quart water Brown hamburger and onion. Add tomatoes and water. When water starts boiling add macaroni. Cook until macaroni is soft. Season to taste. Note: You can add more hamburger or tomatoes for your preference.

your home. With your income of $36,000, it sounds like you are living well within your means. Whether you should be investing in mutual funds SMART or directly the stock MONEY in market is another Bruce Williams question. It is my opinion that, particularly with today’s relatively poor performance of mutual funds, that you might shift your investments into reasonably large companies that are
paying 2 percent to 4 percent dividends. If you wish to take more risk, which you certainly can afford to do in your early 20s, you might lean toward companies that are paying dividends and are rapidly increasing in value. DEAR BRUCE: My husband recently passed away. I now face our financial obligations alone. He has an outstanding balance of $15,000 on a credit card in his name alone. Is this my responsibility? — Reader, via email DEAR READER: The likelihood is that you will be obliged to pay the $15,000. Even though the credit card was in his name alone, the $15,000 was credit that was granted to him during your marriage. There are some circumstances where this
would not be your responsibility, but unless you have more information that you didn’t share, I think you are going to find that you will have to pay this.

Head, now heart: Football collides with health It is no secret that football is good for business. Who would have heard of Green Bay otherwise? That is the reason large cities and corporations build enormous stadiums for events that occur just a few times per year. High schools and colleges use the sport to raise funds and maintain support among their students, alumni and other fans. The impact of football on American society is not ignored by the medical profession either. It is common practice for orthopedic surgeons to provide trainers and/ or physical therapists to teams at no charge. These health care professionals are frequently available at all practices and games. In fact, it is not uncommon that a doctor will be on the sidelines of the football field at game time. Football is a war game, with strategies and combat taking place within the
framework of previously agreed upon rules and using protective gear to create the illusion of safety for the players. However, like many warriors, football DR. TERRY players are frequently GAFF injured in spite of rules and gear. Pretty much everyone is aware that there are risks in football. After all, we have all heard someone mention an â€œold football injuryâ€? as an excuse to get out of something a guy did not want to do. Recently, the frequency of head injuries with concussions and the danger of â€œsecond impact syndromeâ€? has been getting a lot of discussion and press coverage, including in several editions of this
column. In addition to the issues we already know about, a new study has suggested a new risk to playing football, at least at the college level. They concluded that collegiate American-style football athletes may be at risk for significant increases in blood pressure and the development of hypertension, especially linemen. The five year study among first-year college players found that 47 percent of players were considered pre-hypertensive and 14 percent had stage one hypertension after the season. The average systolic blood pressure levels rose to an average of nine points from preseason to after the season measurements. Football players were also more likely to experience heart muscle wall thickening (left ventricular hypertrophy) than endurance athletes. Again, this was
â€œEveryone should have their blood pressure checked regularly, but especially those with a family history of hypertension or those playing football on the offensive or defensive line.â€? Dr. Terry Gaff
â€˘ especially seen in linemen. The experts noted, however, that this new study should not be interpreted to mean that playing football causes hypertension. It may just indicate that the linemen, who tend to be the biggest and heaviest players on the field, may be the most susceptible to blood pressure problems. In 2011, 32.8 percent of Indiana adults had been told by a doctor or other health professional that they had high blood pressure. So everyone should have their blood pressure checked regularly, but especially
those with a family history of hypertension or those playing football on the offensive or defensive line. While high blood pressure is a risk factor for many poor health outcomes, steps can be taken to manage it in order to prevent the long term effects of hypertension. Getting back to football, in spite of all of its inherent risks, I am sure it will maintain its prominence in our society. It provides us with the excitement of war without the specter of death and destruction. It also provides us with common
ground for endless discussions and debates as well as stories and fantasies. As an emergency physician, it also provides me with something interesting to do, taking care of the injured and trying to get them well enough to get back out on the field of battle as soon and as safely as possible. As I said, football is good for business. DR. TERRY GAFF practiced
family medicine in Albion for 17 years and is now medical director of the emergency department at Parkview Noble Hospital in Kendallville and the Noble County EMS.

CDC: First national sign of childhood obesity drop ATLANTA (AP) â€” For many years, doctors have been wringing their hands as more and more U.S. children grew fat. Now, that may be changing, with the first evidence of a national decline in childhood obesity. In 18 states, there were at least slight drops in obesity for low-income preschoolers, health officials said Tuesday. After decades on the rise, childhood obesity rates recently have essentially been flat. A few places â€” Philadelphia, New York City and Mississippi â€” reported improvements in the last couple of years. But the report from the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention shows signs of wider-ranging progress. â€œNow, for the first time, weâ€™re seeing a significant decrease in childhood obesityâ€? nationally, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, CDC director. But rates are still too high, he added. One in 8 preschoolers is obese in the United States, and itâ€™s even more common in black and Hispanic kids. â€œItâ€™s not like weâ€™re out of the woods,â€? he said during a conference call with reporters Tuesday. Obesity continues to be one of the nationâ€™s leading public health problems â€” health officials call it a longstanding epidemic. A third of U.S. children and teens and more than two-thirds of adults are obese or overweight. Some hope the report marks a turning point. â€œI really do think this is a pivotal moment,â€? said Sam Kass, executive director of a White House initiative to reduce childhood obesity. Preschoolers who are overweight or obese are five times more likely than other children to be heavy as adults, which means greater
risks of high cholesterol, high blood sugar, asthma and even mental health problems. Tuesdayâ€™s study used height and weight measurements from nearly 12 million low-income children in 40 states. The data was collected from 2008 through 2011. Most of the children ages 2 to 4 were enrolled in the federal Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program, which provides food vouchers and other services. Itâ€™s harder to get national data on preschoolers of more affluent families, so itâ€™s not clear if the trend applies to all young children. But experts note that low-income kids tend to be heavier. â€œIf youâ€™re going to look at the problem of obesity early in childhood, the group at highest risk are low-income kids. Thatâ€™s what makes this data so valuable for understanding trends in this major public health problem,â€? said Dr. Matthew Davis, a University of Michigan researcher who tracks health policy and childrenâ€™s health issues. The biggest declines were in Florida, Georgia, Missouri, New Jersey and South Dakota. Each saw their obesity numbers fall at least 1 percentage point. Other states showing improvement: California, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico and Washington. A substantial decline was also seen in the U.S. Virgin Islands. â€œThese signs of progress tell a clear story: we can reverse the childhood obesity epidemic. It isnâ€™t some kind of unstoppable force,â€? said Dr. James S. Marks, in a statement. Heâ€™s senior vice president at the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation, a philanthropy that supports programs to tackle obesity. Despite the improvements, the numbers are still disappointing. Hawaii was the best, with about 9 percent of low-income preschoolers estimated to be obese in 2011. Even with some progress, California was worst, at nearly 17 percent. Ten states were not included; some had changed how they track height and weight. One of the missing states is Texas, which has one of the largest populations of low-income children and is known to have a significant problem with childhood obesity. Of the remaining 40 states, 18 showed at least slight improvement and 19 states and Puerto Rico had no significant change. Three states â€” Colorado, Pennsylvania and Tennessee â€” increased. The last CDC study to look at childhood obesity data this way found very different results. From 2003 to 2008, significant declines in preschooler obesity were seen in only nine states and increases were seen in 24 states. â€œWeâ€™re seeing great progress,â€? said the CDCâ€™s Ashleigh May, lead author of the new study. The report didnâ€™t answer why some states improved while most others held steady, and Davis said thereâ€™s a pressing need to do more research and understand how some states were able to scale back. CDC officials said a change in WIC policies probably played a major role. The changes â€” instituted in 2009 â€” eliminated juice from infant food packages, provided less saturated fat, and made it easier to buy fruits and vegetables.
WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Can a mobile app really teach a baby to find her nose? Or learn to recognize letters and numbers? Not according to an advocacy group that filed a complaint Wednesday with the Federal Trade Commission alleging that two popular baby app developers â€” Fisher-Price Inc. and Open Solutions â€” are trying to dupe parents into thinking their online games make infant and toddlers smarter. The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, the Boston-based group whose allegations against â€œBaby Einsteinâ€? videos eventually led to nationwide consumer refunds, is urging federal investigators to examine the marketing practices of Fisher-Priceâ€™s â€œLaugh & Learnâ€? mobile apps and Open Solutionsâ€™ games such as â€œBaby Hear and Readâ€? and â€œBaby First Puzzle.â€? Itâ€™s the campaignâ€™s first complaint against the mobile app industry as part of its broader push to hold accountable businesses that market technology to very young children and their parents. â€œEverything we know about brain research and child development points away from using screens to educate babies,â€? said Susan Linn, the groupâ€™s director. â€œThe research shows that machines and screen media are a really ineffective way of teaching a baby language. What babies need for healthy brain development is active play, hands-on creative play and face-to-faceâ€? interaction. Linnâ€™s group alleges that the companies violate truth-in-advertising laws when they claim to â€œteachâ€? babies skills. For example, Fisher-Price of East Aurora,
N.Y., claims that its Laugh & Learn â€œWhereâ€™s Puppyâ€™s Nose?â€? app can teach a baby about body parts and language, while its â€œLearning Letters Puppyâ€? app educates babies on the alphabet and counting to 10. Open Solutions, a developer based in Bratislava, Slovakia, says its mobile apps offer a â€œnew and innovative form of educationâ€? by allowing babies to â€œpractice logic and motor skills.â€? â€œGiven that thereâ€™s no evidence that (mobile apps are) beneficial, and some evidence that it may actually be harmful, thatâ€™s concerning,â€? Linn said of the companiesâ€™ marketing claims. In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Open Solutions said it agrees that electronics are not a substitute for human interaction. It also noted the many positive reviews by customers. â€œWe also donâ€™t say â€˜get this game and let it teach your child everything,â€™â€? the company wrote. â€œWe assume (the) child is playing the game with parent/sister/baby sitter. We think we have apps that can help parents with babies, either by entertaining babies or help them see new things, animals, hear their sounds etc.â€? Fisher-Price, contacted by phone and email, did not provide comment. According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, more than half of American adults own a smartphone while about a third of adults own a tablet. With the number of mobile devices on the rise, mobile software applications have become lucrative money makers. Even apps that are downloaded for free will often collect personal information from a consumer
that can then be sold to marketers. Most of the Fisher-Price apps, for example, are free but warn in their privacy policies that â€œthird partiesâ€? can collect information about a personâ€™s device for possible marketing purposes. Federal law says advertising canâ€™t mislead consumers and, in some cases, must be backed by scientific evidence. In 2012, the FTC â€” which enforces truth-in-advertising laws â€” agreed with the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood that the developer of â€œYour Baby Can Readâ€? lied when it promised consumers it could teach babies as young as 9 months to read. That business shuttered after the FTC imposed a $185 million settlement. In 2006, the group asked the FTC to prohibit the makers of Baby Einstein and Brainy Baby videos from making claims about educational benefits. The FTC eventually declined to act after the companies, owned by the Walt Disney Co., agreed to remove some marketing promises from its packages and took down testimonials that claimed educational benefits. After the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood encouraged a group of lawyers to threaten a class-action lawsuit, Disney began offering cash refunds for videos purchased. Linn said her organization targeted Fisher-Price and Open Solutions because their baby apps were among the most popular and because they represented an overall trend of deceptive marketing practices by app developers, both big and small.

‘Elysium’ a blunt but affecting sci-fi drama Science fiction director Neill Blomkamp will likely be remembered for many things. Subtlety will not be one of them. Like his first major film, 2009’s “District 9,” Blomkamp makes no secret of the inspiration for and moral of his story in his new film, “Elysium.” Just like “District 9” was a story of apartheid, JENNY plain and simple, you KOBIELA- don’t have to dig down MONDOR into subtext to see what “Elysium” is tackling. But while “District 9” kind of felt like a revelation — Blomkamp was a relatively untested filmmaker, his stars were unknown and the story was much deeper than many moviegoers were expecting — “Elysium” doesn’t quite pack the same punch. Oh, it’s good, all right — much better, and more intense and emotional than most of what’s coming out of Hollywood, and populated by an incredible cast — but it isn’t quite the stunner I was hoping for. “Elysium” follows Max De Costa (Matt Damon), a former felon now trying to make an honest living on a ruined Earth in the year 2159. When he gets blasted with a fatal dose of radiation at work, he resurrects his childhood dream of making it to Elysium, the space station where rich people fled when the earth became overcrowded, dirty and dangerous, to get healed before he dies. On Elysium, meanwhile, Secretary of Defense Delacourt (Jodie Foster) aspires to preserve Elysium by any means necessary. Delacourt advocates a much tougher stance on the illegals who make the dangerous journey from Earth to Elysium than the current president (Faran
Despite being a blunt movie in many ways, there is a lot of subtlety in the performances in “Elysium.”
• Tahir) can stomach, and she soon realizes that a coup may be the only way to save her way of life. Delacourt’s plans and Max’s plans collide when Max inadvertently steals some data Delacourt needs to complete her plan, and Max, his old friend Frey (Alice Braga) and her incredibly ill daughter Matilda (Emma Tremblay) get caught in the middle as Delacourt sends the ruthless agent Kruger (Sharlto Copley) after them. Clearly, “Elysium” is trying to tell a story about economic inequality and illegal immigration, and it mostly succeeds, even if Blomkamp hits the audience over the head with it. It’s more blunt than it probably needs to be — it’s clear Blomkamp was afraid that his audience wouldn’t get the point if he disguised it more- but it has a clear point of view and it comments on a very real issue in today’s world. Unfortunately, the thought ends up feeling a little incomplete — I would like to see more of the repercussions of some of the events at the end of the movie — but it also should lead to at least a few deep thoughts on the subject matter presented. That’s something that good science fiction often aims to do, and in that, Blomkamp succeeded. Blomkamp’s bluntness is also on display in the action sequences of “Elysium.” The movie is gritty and bloody, and it does not shy away from showing the violence of this bleak new world. Some of the sequences get a little bit confusing, due to Blomkamp’s love of
This film publicity image released by TriStar, Columbia Pictures-Sony shows Matt Damon, right, the handheld camera feel, but in this context, it only adds to the chaos of the scenes. Blomkamp does not shy away from showing people getting blown up, stabbed and shot, but it never feels like he’s doing it just to shock the audience. There’s a reason for, and a message behind, every drop of blood. It doesn’t hurt the movie that they are well-choreographed, interestingly shot and, a lot of the time, just plain cool-looking action sequences, either. Despite being a blunt movie in many ways, there is a lot of subtlety in the performances in “Elysium.” Max is a compelling character, and he is played expertly by Matt Damon. Max is clearly smart and strong, but he’s also angry at his lot in life and the paralysis he feels. The question becomes: Did Max turn to a life of crime because he was smart and strong enough to do it, or because he had no other options? It’s never explic-
itly stated this way, but Max’s intelligence, moral questions and simmering anger all come out in Damon’s performance, turning the quiet Max into a much more complex character. On the other side of the coin, Jodie Foster’s icy Secretary Delacourt also gives the audience something to think about. Although she’s cast as a villain, some of her motivations are understandable, forcing the audience to wonder exactly how bad she really is. Also more subtle, and really quite clever, is the world Blomkamp has created. He hasn’t reinvented anything, but
in a scene from “Elysium.” instead has used the world as inspiration. You can see, in a million different ways, the things from today’s world that have inspired him. It feels very real at times, which is scary considering the awful state of the Earth, and I’m sure it’s intentional — the world of “Elysium” is not meant to be the future, but now. Blomkamp may point out the main points of his story with a marquee, but on that foundation of obviousness he piles a whole lot of subtle, uncomfortable details. It’s a little too obvious for its own good, and it doesn’t measure up to “District 9,” but as a fan of
good movies and science fiction, I was extremely pleased by “Elysium.” While I will always love the more whimsical, positive, mainstream sci-fi fare of something like the “Star Trek” reboot franchise, I’m glad there are filmmakers willing to go out on a limb to tell a more socially conscious, risky sci-fi tale — even if they fall a smidgen short sometimes. Jenny’s Take: See it before it leaves theaters. (Rated R for strong bloody violence and language throughout. Runs 109 minutes.)
Stars work without a script at TV conference BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — So, all you actors and other folks with TV shows to promote, what do you have to say for yourself? Their proving ground was the just-ended Television Critics Association summer meeting, at which the TV industry paraded the stars and creators of next season’s fare to produce newspaper ink or blogs or tweets that might entice viewers to tune in. It turned out some celebrities, familiar faces and new ones, can be charming, funny or impressively honest without a script. Here are some of the breakout moments, possible clues to the shows to look for in the 2013-14 season. • Michael J. Fox, patiently explaining that, yes, he has Parkinson’s disease and, yes, it’s OK to make his life with it part of his NBC sitcom. “It is what I deal with. It is my reality and my life, but it’s not horrible. … There’s nothing on the surface horrible about someone with a shaky hand.” • Jeff Garlin of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” fame, stealing the session for ABC’s “The Goldbergs” with good-natured, high-decibel razzing of reporters. “It’s very unsettling to be up here and have half of you playing poker,” he bellowed at reporters peering at their laptop screens. • The women of PBS’ “Downtown Abbey,” upstairs and downstairs. Laura Carmichael, aka the downtrodden Lady Edith,
dazzled in chic hair and dress as she proclaimed that in season four Edith would prove “the Carrie Bradshaw of the ’20s.” On-screen servants Daisy, Mrs. Hughes and Anna, played respectively by Sophie McShera, Phyllis Logan and Joanne Froggatt, looked like a million bucks — or pounds — each. • Robin Williams, politely sedate, until one reporter lit the fuse by comparing the star of CBS’ “The Crazy Ones” to a sad clown. Replied Williams, gleefully: “Especially a sad clown you wake up next (to) and go, ‘Oh, my God. What are those big feet doing in the bed?!’” • Tennis great Billie Jean King, winning skeptical media hearts with her candor and courage. The first sports figure profiled on PBS’ “American Masters,” King, who fought for women’s rights on and off the court, said she overcame her self-described “homophobia” to become comfortable as a lesbian in middle age. • Arsenio Hall, looking sharp and fit for his return to late-night television and sharing startling gossip about his competitors: Jay Leno offered contacts for writers on his staff who were forced out during layoffs, while Jimmy Kimmel wrote a check to support Hall’s charity when he won “Celebrity Apprentice” last year. • The cast and producers of Fox’s sitcom “Enlisted,” promising the show would be better than the pilot. The cast and producers of Fox’s
sitcom “Dads,” slammed in early reviews for being sexist, crass and more, promising much the same. • Spike Lee, playing video Boswell to Mike Tyson’s chipper Samuel Johnson as the pair touted the boxer’s one-man stage show coming to HBO. Tyson said he couldn’t wait to perform each night and “just like in a fight, I wanted to kill everybody in the room — by my performance, of course.” Some kidder. • Collectively, the pint-sized charmers of Fox’s “MasterChef Junior,” who took the sting out of tough guy Gordon Ramsay. “He can’t be really mean because, like, we’re kids,” one of them explained, then corrected Ramsay’s claim he never swore. “Twice,” she said. • The joy of British wit, as exemplified by Max Irons when asked about his nudity in Starz’ “The White Queen” series and how dad Jeremy Irons may react. “I’d refer him to his back catalog,” Irons said, alluding to the elder Irons’ explicit sex scenes in films including 1988’s “Dead Ringers.” • The joy of British charm, courtesy of London cabbie Tony Walker, among the group whose lives have been chronicled by filmmaker Michael Apted in his “Up” series, with “56 Up,” the latest chapter on PBS. Whether explaining “reluctantly and with respect” that he’s never watched “Downton Abbey,” or describing his up-by-the-bootstraps life, Walker was a winner.

Construction legacy preserved at Auburn locations BY JOHN BRY
“It feels like I am home again.” That was how former Auburn resident Mike Long described the feeling he was experiencing as he sat in the living room of 404 North Union in Auburn recently. Mike and his wife Carol returned to the city for his 55th class reunion of Auburn High School, and he was indeed home. Mike spent the beginning of his childhood at the Cape Cod style cottage with its deep setback and towering Cottonwood and maple trees. Mike’s father was part of a contracting legacy that has defined the Auburn landscape still seen today. Mike’s father was Bill “Waldo” Long, and his grandfather was Perry Long. The latter was the trusted contractor of Charles Eckhart. Perry Long would be the builder of the Eckhart Library and the Main Street YMCA. Both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Perry Long would also construct the surviving buildings of Eckhart Park in 1915. Perry Long left his footprint everywhere in the city with homes, commercial buildings and the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Building in his career. He passed that building knack onto his son Waldo, known as Bill. Bill Long would carve out his own construction legacy in the Classic City. Bill and his wife Ruth would reside on North Union Street for over 50 years. They were the type of neighbors everyone loved, and looked forward to their weekly neighborhood barbecue. Following their marriage they acquired land along Cedar Creek and North Union Street to make their home and begin their family. Bill would erect the New England inspired

cottage in 1940 complete with a picket fenced backyard, and a workshop for himself in the garage. A playroom for Mike and his brother Dave occupied the ground floor, and a massive brick fireplace is the focal point in the living room. Mike Long recalled how Cedar Creek flooded so high one year the water almost reached the top of the basement steps. He could also still envision the Zenith Radio that once graced the living room, and where the Lone Ranger galloped into Mike’s imagination every week. North Union Street was largely undeveloped in 1940 with the exception of earlier Auburn structures from the city’s founding days that had been relocated here including that of Town Founder Wesley Park’s home. Along with the Longs, the Thomas family members were the other early residents along North Union Street as it evolved. Bill Long would build

other homes immediately surrounding his own often doing so with no formal blueprints. Rather, Bill would use a photograph, a page from a magazine, and his eye for design and detail as his guide. By 1949 the Longs moved directly across the street to 403 North Union after the Longs received an unsolicited offer to sell their piece of the American Dream. Mike Long’s neighborhood will always be special to him as well as his childhood home. Photos of his mother Ruth and Grandmother Ketel taken in front of the fireplace, birthday parties in the backyard, circuses at Madden’s Field, and sporadic spring time floods from Cedar Creek are forever frozen in his memories today. It is a comfort to Mike to also know his former home has been passed on to someone who has taken a keen interest in the house

and family. David Bieritz moved to Auburn two years ago from Michigan, and snapped up the Long Home after it had been foreclosed on, and stood vacant. Dave has been eager to learn all he can from Mike, and to respect and maintain many of the
house’s original features that remain intact just as Bill Long had intended them. Bieritz was drawn to the charm of 404 the moment he peered through its windows in December of 2012. He felt closer to the house after learning

Cedar home attracts unwanted guests
Q. Why do woodpeckers keep attacking my cedar home? — Jim from LaGrange A. Well, Jim, it sounds like you live in the backwoods. But that is not necessarily true, woodpeckers can be attracted to your wood home regardless of where you live. The primary reason woodpeckers like the wood siding of your home is that they think bugs are living in the siding. If your home has a problem with carpenter ants, worms or other insects, that can be a source SQUARE of food for the CORNERS woodpeckers. An exterminator may Jeff Deahl be the answer to your problem. Woodpeckers can also be attracted to carpenter bee larva left by bees burrowing deep into your wood trim. These bees can bore deep into the siding leaving a circular hole. It doesn’t matter whether your home is cedar or redwood, the woodpeckers are attracted to the larva left behind by the bees. Another reason that they may be attracted to your home is that when they peck on wood siding, it will make a hollow noise that imitates the sound of a hollow tree, a common food source for them. So that being said, how do we keep the little peckers away? Most experts agree that making some kind of noise to startle them, like a set of wind chimes, or stringing a line with shiny or bright colored metal around your affected areas will scare them and deter them from interpreting your home as being a free buffet. You can also use a hornet spray to shoot the areas that they are attacking and around the bee holes. They will usually leave those areas alone but will probably move to a new location. In the past, I have stuffed steel wool or a metal cloth into their holes, covered with a caulk that matches the siding to finish filling the holes, and the woodpeckers will then leave those areas alone.

Cigar store Indians prized by antique dealers, art collectors, museums It is believed that tobacco is commonly associated with Native Americans because the Mayan people of North America introduced the ritual of smoking to Christopher Columbus and his crew upon their arrival in the new world. Apparently, Columbus was offered dried tobacco leaves by the natives upon his arrival in the fall of 1492. As North America was further colonized, tobacco was sold in the colonies and throughout Europe. The 17th century tobacco trade inspired a long and colorful history which leads us to a discussion of the collectible works of folk art called the cigar store Indian. One of the earliest known cigar store Indians dates back to 1617. Shop keepers used carved figures of Native Americans — called Virginie men — to attract tobacco buyers to their stores. Settlers at the famous Jamestown colony in Virginia grew tobacco based on instructions provided by the Native Americans. The Jamestown settlement was the first English tobacco plantation in Virginia. Leaves were transported by ship and brokers traded the commodity widely in America and Europe. Tobacco has long been associated with Native Americans and using
the likeness of a Native American as an advertising tool is how the cigar store Indian was born. Tobacco sellers displayed carved sculptures of Native Americans, typically in full costume and headdress, to advertise their crops to a tobaccousing and widely illiterate public. During the late 1800s, ART & figures wooden of Native ANTIQUES Americans were used on tobacco transport vessels Dr. Lori at sea. They were attached to the front of a ship transporting tobacco from America to Europe. Like the prominent display on the tobacco transport ships, tobacco sellers and shop owners decided to use these cigar store Indian figures in front of their store. Original cigar store Indian carvings were hand-made and uniquely designed. They were first introduced by merchants circa 1840. Cigar store Indians are life-size
tobacco advertising images and were collected widely starting in the late 1920s. By the mid-1900s, the carved and painted cigar store Indian became less common due to higher manufacturing costs, restrictions on tobacco advertising and sidewalk-obstruction laws. Today, these colorful and sculpted objects are widely collected and represent an important category of collectibles. As tobacco use fell out of fashion in the 1980s, the cigar store Indian grew in popularity. Good examples with original paint in good condition typically sell for thousands of dollars on the antiques market. The record price for a cigar store figure is more than $.5 million. Cigar store Indians were made from sculpted or carved wood, molded plaster of paris or chalkware, cast iron and even constructed metal. DR. LORI VERDERAME (“Dr. Lori”), a Ph.D. antiques appraiser, author, and award-winning TV personality, presents antique appraisal events nationwide.

Indian corn grows with help of beans, squash Archeological studies indicate that corn was first cultivated by the primitive people of Mesoamerica about 5,600 years ago. Corn or maize was the primary starch for Native Americans for centuries and is considered the “mother grain” of the Americas. The term maize comes from the Spanish form (maiz) of the Arawak Native Americans. Today what we call Indian corn is not commonly used for food, but as part of our fall decor. The colorful, dried ears come in a rainbow of striped, speckled and solid colors and can last for years. The coloring of the kernels is attributed to a “jumping gene” or more technically a transposon. Transposons are genes that move from one location to another within an organisms genetic material. In the case of corn, the transposon is moving into or out of the gene responsible for pigment in the kernel. When the transposon moves into the pigment gene, it disrupts pigment production, the pigment is not produced and the kernel appears white. When the transposon moves
out of the pigment gene, pigment is produced again and appears as purple, brown or red. The point in development when the transposon is moving in or out of the pigment gene determines whether the kernel appears white, speckled, striped or colored. Voila! Corn grows best KNOWLEDGE in plenty TO GROW of sunshine and warm temperaKaren Weiland tures. When it comes to planting and spacing, refer to the package directions. Soak the corn seeds for several hours, but not more than 8 hours before planting. Since corn requires a large amount of nitrogen for leaf development, many gardeners plant beans near or around the corn. The corn stalks provide support for the beans and the bean roots introduce
nitrogen into the soil for the corn. Plant some squash too. The large squash leaves will provide shade to the soil, help keep it moist and prevent the growth of weeds. I have been told that the prickly squash leaves keep racoons away, they don’t like to step on them. This planting combination is called the three sisters. Did you know that the number of silks per ear of corn is equal to the number of kernels on the cob. Each silk is pollinated to produce one kernel of corn. If you look very closely at a kernel of corn you will see a small tail. That is where the silk was attached. As always, happy gardening.

PHOTOS BY AP
Brian Patrick Flynn shows a playful family room in a home shared by two young parents and their two active sons. Interior designer Flynn deliberately used youth as a part of the room’s decor with original
framed photography of 1980s Duplo figures as well as playful accessories and a bold, vibrant palette of navy blue and fire engine red.
Interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn had his client’s family photography cropped tightly, then printed over scale in black and white for use as dining room art. Flynn suggests focusing tightly on faces rather than landscapes or surroundings to instantly warm up and personalize room’s designed for family gatherings.
A family room the whole family will like THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
In many homes, the “family room” is decorated with just one purpose: to withstand the impact of juice-spilling, game-playing, cookie-eating, crayonwielding children. The result is often a room that’s long on durability but short on style. How can you create a stylish, sophisticated family room where grown-ups will want to spend time, while still keeping the space kid-friendly? Three design experts — Brian Patrick Flynn of decordemon.com and Flynnside Out Productions; Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design; and Jon Call of Mr. Call Designs — offer some advice:
Strong fabrics “Design technology and textiles are catching up with our family-friendly lifestyle,” says Burnham. “There are so many outdoor fabrics, so many amazing vinyls” that are durable and easy to clean, but also look good. Burnham is a fan of Holly Hunt fabrics treated with Nano-Tex,
which resists spills and stains without changing the fabric’s texture. Indoor/outdoor rugs are another great option now that they’re being made with materials soft to the touch. Flynn, who often uses Sunbrella indoor/ outdoor fabrics, suggests upholstering with removable slipcovers for easy cleaning. When choosing slipcovers, “washed linen is great since it’s meant to look worn-in and super casual.” He’s also a fan of very dark denim: “Navy blue and charcoal are my go-to choices for denim slipcovers since they look more tailored than basic beiges or creams.”
Neat sofas Call recommends skipping sofas that have three or four seat cushions and several more cushions across the back. “If you’ve got kids playing and jumping on those,” he says, you’ll constantly be finding the cushions out of place or on the floor. Instead, he says, pick a sofa with one large seat cushion and no separate
cushions along the back — “something tailored and clean looking” that won’t need its cushions adjusted constantly.
Multi-use tables Family rooms are built for entertaining, so think about flexible seating, Burnham says. “Maybe a side table that’s also a stool, or a coffee table that’s also a bench or an ottoman.” Kids can use an ottoman as a surface for games, while adult party guests can use it as seating. Opt for tables with rounded corners for safety in rooms where kids often play, Flynn says, and choose tables with “metal or weathered wood tops. Metal tops can withstand heavy wear and tear, while weathered wood is intended to look worn, so as kids take their toll on the pieces, it simply adds to the intended look.”
Varied lighting Rooms that do doubleduty need lighting that does too, says Call. “When you have adults
Faux plants can liven up home THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
If there’s somewhere in your home that needs livening up but it’s not practical to use real plants, consider using faux flowers and greenery. And don’t worry about it. Decorators, or maybe your mother, used to tell you to skip the fake stuff if you wanted to stay classy. But improved manufacturing and materials are giving artificial plants and silk flowers a fresh reputation. “The technology has come a long way. They look so real now it’s hard to tell,” says Kathie Chrisicos, designer and president of Boston-based Chrisicos Interiors.
Extra storage Have a place for everything, Burnham says, so toys and other kid-related items can be put away easily at the end of the day. She recommends a wall of built-in cabinets with doors, so kids’ clutter can be easily stashed, at hand but out of sight. She also suggests creating storage space in the family room for a few fragile or valuable items that aren’t kid-friendly. “You can have a cashmere throw in the cabinet that you pull out for the adults,” Burnham says. By storing these things in the room, you’re more likely to really use them, yet they’re protected from the kids’ play. Flynn also recommends
built-ins, and suggests “adding color and pattern to their back panels.” “I usually use large-scale patterned wallpaper,” he says. Consider nautical styles: “They’re casual and fun, and they don’t take themselves too seriously.” For additional storage, Flynn says, replace coffee tables with “upholstered storage ottomans complete with safety locking mechanisms, which prevent little ones from getting inside of them to hide, and also protecting any little fingers from hinges.” He suggests upholstering ottomans with indoor-outdoor fabrics so they’ll withstand spills and sticky fingers.
Bold colors In a high-traffic family room, Call suggests sticking with deeper colors rather than whites or pale shades. Flynn agrees: “The one color I use more than any other in family-centric spaces is navy blue,” he says, because it can appeal to the whole family. He recommends Seaworthy navy from Sherwin-Wil-
liams: “It has just the right amount of purple in it to make it bright instead of dark.” “Red is another high-energy hue which works great in family rooms,” Flynn says, which works well with most other colors, especially black-brown, navy blue and charcoal.
Playful decor Don’t hide the fact that the room is being shared with kids, Flynn says. “Embrace it. Work children and playfulness into the design of a family room’s aesthetic,” he suggests. On the walls, he likes to use “pop art or original photography of toys, especially vintage toys, or black-and-white candid photography of the family blown up to an enormous scale” to personalize the room. “Kids and pets are a huge part of our lives. Since we love them more than the sofas and chairs they sit on, why not make them as much as part of a room’s decoration as its furnishings?” Flynn says.
Favorite old T-shirts find new life as skirts THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Selection savvy When you’re shopping for faux, pay attention to detail. Manufactured plants and flowers should have the variations in color, texture and density that live plants do, including the look of new growth and old growth, says Doug Hopeman, owner of the Nashville, Tenn.-based Artificial Plants and Trees. Visible stems, branches and trunks should appear realistic. “The ability to create the minute, intricate detail of everything about the plants and trees helps make them more natural-looking than they were 10 years ago,” he says. You can choose from an array of products. People often choose real plants that aren’t native to their region, so don’t feel limited to the varieties found near you when
over or if you’re watching TV or it’s a more intimate moment, you want a lamp by the sofa, at eye-level or below, to create intimate pools of light,” he says. But kids doing homework or art projects need the brighter light that overhead fixtures provide. Make sure your family room has both.
Chrisicos Interiors LLC shows a silk tree from NESA of a bonsai, rear, in a traditional metallic gold toned elegant dining room in Newton, Mass. Improved manufacturing methods and materials are giving artificial plants and silk flowers a fresh reputation.
buying artificial ones, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores. Current trends in greenery include palms and succulents, as well as potted herbs such as lavender and rosemary, and small leafy plants and ivies. Peonies, mums, dahlias, sunflowers and hydrangeas are among popular silk florals.
Perfect presentation Artificial plants are easy
to manipulate. You can bend stems and branches to make them reach toward natural light or fit into a certain space, and then change it up so it doesn’t always look the same. “I’ve had people tell me my plant was really growing when, in fact, I’m just repositioning it occasionally,” Pearson says.

Remember that old REM concert T-shirt from 1989? Or the shirt from the 10K race where you set a personal best? It’s a shame they’re living in the back of your closet, because they don’t have to. Recycled into a skirt, our nostalgic Ts get to parade again in public. Denise Chaudhari makes three styles of skirt out of rock-band T-shirts: a casual, asymmetrical skirt, a simple a-line and a more professional-looking skirt for flaunting at the office. “Everybody has (old T-shirts) in their drawer, and they’re not flattering to wear,” says Chaudhari, of Lafayette, Colo. “They won’t wear them, but they won’t get rid of them.” Chaudhari’s answer is these flirty skirts, made from T’s and color-coordinating jersey fabric. She began a few years ago by pilfering from her husband’s storied collection, and then friends shared their old T’s. Today, Chaudhari trolls thrift stores — those near universities are the best — and buys in bulk from concert T-shirt wholesalers. Bands from the ’80s, punk rock and the Beatles sell the best, she says. “Punk is cool to wear, even if you don’t listen to it,” says Chaudhari, 43. Sally Lang, of Salem, Ore., makes her own version of the T-shirt skirt, often incorporating rock-band images, although she says good rock T’s are hard to find at thrift stores. In her neck of the woods, tie dye rules. The dynamic colors and patterns translate into eye-catching skirts. “In Oregon, we’re kind of obsessed with tie dye,” says Lang. In Chaudhari’s experience selling her skirts at craft fairs, buyers who don’t have a favorite band gravitate to the T-shirt skirts that feature a guitar or other generic, musical image, or to super-hero graphics. She also recommends making recycled
