GOOD MORNING Federal benefits to rise only slightly WASHINGTON (AP) — For the second straight year, millions of Social Security recipients, disabled veterans and federal retirees can expect historically small increases in their benefits come January. Preliminary figures suggest a benefit increase of roughly 1.5 percent, which would be among the smallest since automatic increases were adopted in 1975, according to an analysis by The Associated Press. Next year’s raise will be small because consumer prices, as measured by the government, haven’t gone up much in the past year. The exact size of the cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA, won’t be known until the Labor Department releases the inflation report for September. That was supposed to happen Wednesday, but the report was delayed indefinitely because of the partial government shutdown. The COLA is usually announced in October to give Social Security and other benefit programs time to adjust January payments. The Social Security Administration has given no indication that raises would be delayed because of the shutdown, but advocates for seniors said the uncertainty was unwelcome. Social Security benefits have continued during the shutdown. More than one-fifth of the country is waiting for the news. Nearly 58 million retirees, disabled workers, spouses and children get Social Security benefits. The average monthly payment is $1,162. A 1.5 percent raise would increase the typical monthly payment by about $17.

Wilbur Renshaw lying in the road bleeding, said a news release from Angola Police Department. He was taken several blocks to Cameron Memorial Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy will be performed at St. Joseph Hospital in Fort Wayne to determine the cause of death, the release said. The suspect in the apparent stabbing is Kenneth Fletcher, 41. He is at large and is being sought

by police. He is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call the Angola Police Department at Fletcher 665-2121. Numerous police units sealed off the 400 block of Washington Street and worked throughout Saturday

evening and early morning hours Sunday on the investigation. Little information was available Sunday about the investigation. A neighbor said Renshaw lived in the nearby apartment complex. Angola police were assisted by the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department, Indiana State Police, Orland Town Marshal, Angola Fire Department, Indiana Conservation Officers and the Steuben County Coroner’s Office.

Dillinger’s gang struck 80 years ago BY AARON ORGAN

AUBURN — Officer Fred Krueger walked into the Auburn Police station at Ninth and Cedar streets with a bag of popcorn and sat down. Just behind him walked in two men. So began Dillinger one of the most daring heists in American gangster lore. Eighty years ago today, around 11:20 p.m., Krueger and Officer Henry West were on duty at the station when two members of the John Dillinger gang, possibly with Dillinger serving as a lookout, came into the station armed with handguns and locked the officers in a holding cell before making off with the station’s arsenal of weapons, bulletproof vests and ammunition. A report in The Evening Star’s Oct. 16, 1933, edition told that West was seated at a desk when Krueger came into the station with a sack of popcorn. Immediately after him walked in “two well dressed men about thirty years old,” each with

a revolver in each hand, the report said. One of the men told West to sit still, saying, “We don’t want to kill anyone unless we have to,” and asked, “Have you got any guns?” The men relieved West and Krueger of their side arms, then demanded the key to the station’s gun cabinet, urging the officers with 45-caliber revolvers pressed to their ribs, the report said. The officers were then forced into a holding cell just to the back of the station, which faces south onto Ninth Street (it is today a small restroom). With the officers locked up, the men made two trips to transfer the weapons and accessories to a vehicle, the report said. From their cell, the officers reported seeing a third member of the gang in the hallway, “evidently posted to handle any visitors to the city hall,” the report said. Once the men left, the officers called across Ninth Street to a man, who retrieved a key from a desk in the station and freed the officers. The men left with a submachine gun, three rifles, five revolvers, an automatic pistol, a pair of

bulletproof vests, a magazine and machine gun clip and automaticcartridges, the report said. The report identified Walter Deitrich, who recently escaped from the Michigan City prison, and Harry Copeland, a paroled convict, as the believed “daring bandits” (other historical accounts have pinned the event on Harry Pierpont and Charles Makely). The third man was not identified, though the report suggested it was likely Dillinger. “It was deemed probable that not only Deitrich and Copeland were implicated, but also John Dillinger, who was freed from the Allen County Jail at Lima, Ohio, last week after killing the sheriff,” the report said. Former Sheriff Ralph Thomas reported that two men who were likely the robbers had stopped at his Seventh Street pool hall earlier in the evening and used the telephone. A Plymouth sedan that was believed to be the robbers vehicle was spotted passing the Auburn Diner on Cedar Street just north of the police station at 11:20 p.m., the report said. Then-Police Chief

More than $1,500 was raised and more money is expected to be collected this week. Not pictured is Bob Bates, the men’s one mile winner with a time of 5:30. Common Grace work with area churches to help those in need.

Charles Davis issued a “Notice to Police Officers” two weeks after the holdup, detailing the heist and describing the stolen arms. Davis wrote: “Guns can be identified by officers. Any information received concerning this robbery, please communicate with Charles Davis, Chief of Police.” The weapons weren’t missing long. Police in Tucson, Ariz., recovered the Thompson sub-machine gun Model 1921 and at least one of the rifles after a bloody shootout with the Dillinger gang in January 1934. Both the submachine gun and the rifle – a Winchester model – were stuffed into evidence at that department’s headquarters for 45 years before the Federal Bureau of Investigation took custody of them in 1966. In Washington D.C., the submachine gun – the rifle has been lost over the years – was featured in the Gangster Tour Route Display at the FBI’s Hoover Building until 2002. After that, it was put in what the Auburn Police have been told is a private, V.I.P.type display of Dillinger and other gangster artifacts. The information is according to Auburn Police Capt. Mark Stump, who has taken up a mission to see the submachine gun returned to Auburn. Stump keeps a thick file started bylate Officer Ed McDonald, who began the expedition to recover the stolen submachine gun some five years ago. McDonald died earlier this year. McDonald, and after him now-retired Capt. Tim Baker, and now Stump have worked for roughly five years to locate the Thompson submachine gun and have it returned to Auburn. The search has been met with as many twists and turns and dead-ends as a Dillinger chase. When Stump picked up the search-and-rescue mission just over a year ago, he began by being told he had to get permission from the FBI’s legal department, which required the city prove

A report from The Evening Star’s Oct. 16, 1933, edition tells the story of the John Dillinger gang raiding the Auburn Police Department two days earlier in which two officers were locked in a holding cell while robbers made off with the station’s arsenal of guns, ammunition and bulletproof vests.

ownership of the firearm. A clerk-treasurer report from Sept. 1928 showed the city, indeed, purchased that submachine gun from a local wholesale dealer, its serial numbers matching up. From there, the FBI told the city that it can only access the gun once the sealed display is opened, which is apparently a rare event. Once it was pulled from the display, the city had to gain permission from the FBI to actually release the gun. And once that was approved, the FBI ruled that permission was also needed from the Tucson Police Department, where it sat in evidence after it was recovered following the shootout until the FBI took it in. Two months ago, Stump said Tucson Police acknowledged the submachine gun did belong to Auburn, and the process of returning it took off. Last week, though, Stump

began working to see the return of the gun realized but ran into another roadblock. The federal employees tasked with handling the process have been deemed “nonessential employees” and have been furloughed as part of the federal government shutdown, Stump said. Stump said he has been told that when the shutdown ends, the FBI’s legal department will handle the return of the submachine gun to the Auburn Police Department. Today, Stump said it is sitting in a safe in an office at FBI headquarters. Once the gun is received, Auburn Police Chief Martin McCoy said the plan is to restore it and display it for the public to view, perhaps in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum. “It’s got to be worth some money, but our intent, of course, is to get it back and leave it here,” said McCoy. “We think it’d be a nice draw for the museum.”

Crowds protest closing of World War II memorial WASHINGTON (AP) — A crowd converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday, pushing past barriers to protest the memorial’s closing under the government shutdown. Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, along with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were part of the demonstrators. Cruz and Lee are among the tea party-backed lawmakers who refused to keep the government operating unless President Barack Obama agreed to defund the nation’s health

Oz items on display in Maine ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) — Far from Kansas, far from any yellow brick road and all the way to Maine, fans of “The Wizard of Oz” can catch a peek of Dorothy’s blue gingham dress, a pair of her ruby slippers and even a flying monkey. A new exhibit that opened Saturday at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland features those items and more from the world’s largest Wizard of Oz collection. The 107-piece display includes props from various Wizard of Oz movies, rare first-print copies of the original Wizard of Oz book, movie posters and an array of Oz memorabilia. The exhibit, which runs through March, will give fans a sense of all things Oz,

starting with L. Frank Baum’s 1900 book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” said Willard Carroll, a filmmaker from nearby Camden who owns the items with his longtime partner. Carroll, 57, has amassed more than 100,000 Oz items since he first became enthralled with the story at age 10. The Wizard of Oz story has endured for more than a century and is enjoying a resurgence this year with the release of the 1939 movie in 3-D and the approach of the movie’s 75th anniversary. “Oz the Great and Powerful,” a prequel to the 1939 film that explores the origins of the wizard, was released this year, and the hit musical “Wicked” continues to run on Broadway.

care overhaul. “Let me ask a simple question,” Cruz told the crowd of hundreds that gathered beginning at 9 a.m. “Why is the federal government spending money to erect barricades to keep veterans out of this memorial?” Black metal barricades have lined the front of the memorial since the government closed Oct. 1. That’s when more than 300 National Park Service workers who staff and maintain the National Mall were furloughed. As the crowd entered the memorial plaza, they

chanted “Tear down these walls” and “You work for us.” They sang “God bless America” and other songs. “Our vets have proven that they have not been timid, so we will not be timid in calling out any who would use our military, our vets, as pawns in a political game,” Palin told the crowd. The memorial has become a political symbol in the bitter fight between Democrats and Republicans over who is to blame for the shutdown. Earlier rallies have focused on allowing access for World War II veterans visiting from across the country.

Death In The News • Pulitzer Prize winner Hijuelos dies at 62 NEW YORK (AP) — Oscar Hijuelos, a Cuban-American novelist who won a Pulitzer Prize for his 1989 novel “The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love” and whose work often captured the loss and triumphs of the Cuban immigrant experience, has died. He was 62. Hijuelos died of a heart attack in Manhattan on Saturday while playing tennis, according to his agent, Jennifer Lyons. “The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love” became a best seller and earned him international acclaim. He won the Pulitzer for fiction in 1990, making him the first Hispanic writer to receive that honor. The novel tells the story of two Cuban brothers who journey from Havana to New York to start an orchestra. At one point in the story, the brothers appear on the television sitcom “I Love Lucy,” which starred Lucille Ball and her Cuban bandleader husband, Desi Arnaz. The book was eventually turned into a movie starring Armand Assante and Antonio Banderas. In his 2011 memoir, “Thoughts Without Cigarettes,” Hijuelos writes of how he struggled against being labeled an “ethnic” writer and notes that even today there are few other Latinos whose work, despite the considerable number of talented authors, has been awarded the same recognition.

Briefs • Israel discovers tunnel to Gaza Strip JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military said Sunday it discovered a concrete-lined tunnel dug from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip into Israel, alleging militants planned to use it to attack or kidnap Israelis. In response, the military froze the transfer of all construction materials to the Palestinian territory, the army said. A Hamas military spokesman in Gaza, Abu Obeida, was defiant over the tunnel discovery, saying on his official Twitter account that “thousands” more tunnels would be dug out. According to the Israeli military, the latest tunnel stretches a little more than one mile and appears to have been recently dug and in use until its discovery last week.

Detained US citizen found dead in Cairo CAIRO (AP) — The Egyptian government said a U.S. citizen it detained in the Sinai Peninsula last month for violating curfew was found dead Sunday in his jail cell, the second foreigner to die in detention in recent weeks. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo confirmed that an American citizen held prisoner in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia died from an apparent suicide and that it was in contact with Egyptian authorities. It had no further comment. In Washington, the State Department identified the American as James Lunn and said U.S. consular officials in Cairo were informed of his arrest on Aug. 28, a day after the Egyptians detained him. Consular officials had been in touch with Egyptian authorities and Lunn since, it said.

People • ‘Anarchy’ star out of ‘50 Shades of Grey’ project HOLLYWOOD —The search for the perfect Christian Grey was thought over after “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam was picked to play the lead in the upcoming “Fifty Hunnam Shades of Grey” film, but now it appears Hunnam is out. “The filmmakers of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey,” Universal Pictures said in a statement, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. The 33-year-old actor was the second casting announcement for the steamy film adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic trilogy, after James took to Twitter revealing that Dakota Johnson would play Anastasia Steele on Sept. 2. “The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey,” she wrote.


Few deaths reported from cyclone in India BEHRAMPUR, India (AP) — Mass evacuations spared India the widespread deaths many had feared from a powerful cyclone that roared ashore over the weekend, officials said Sunday, as the country sorted through the wreckage of flooded towns, tangled power lines and tens of thousands of destroyed thatch homes. Cyclone Phailin, the strongest storm to hit India in more than a decade, destroyed hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of crops, but more than 20 hours after it made landfall in Orissa state on the country’s east coast, authorities said they knew of only 17 fatalities. The final death toll is expected to climb further as officials reach areas of the cyclone-battered coast that remain isolated by downed communication links and blocked roads, but the evacuation of nearly 1 million people appeared to have saved many lives. “Damage to property is extensive,” said Amitabh Thakur, the top police officer in the Orissa district worst-hit by the cyclone. “But few lives have been lost,” he said, crediting the mass evacuations.

chairs strewn about. “We were terrified,” A-1 Hotel owner Mihar Ranjan said of himself and 14 other people who had been huddling inside when the wind ripped the tin roof off the building. On Sunday, Gopalpur’s

power lines sagged nearly to the ground and a strong surf churned off the coast. But some shops were opened, doing brisk business selling bottled drinks and snacks, and locals expressed relief that the damage wasn’t worse.

A mermaid statue remained standing on Gopalpur’s boardwalk, where most decorative street lamps still stood along with most of the city’s buildings. “Everyone feels very lucky,” said Prabhati Das, a 40-year-old woman who came from the town of Behrampur, about 10 kilometers (7 miles) inland, to see the aftermath at the coast. A cargo ship carrying iron ore, the MV Bingo, sank Saturday as the cyclone barreled through the Bay of Bengal, and its crew of 18 — including 17 Chinese and one Indonesian — went missing for a day, coast guard officials said. They were being rescued Sunday evening after their lifeboat was found about 185 kilometers (115 miles) off the Indian coast, coast guard Commandant Sharad Matri said. Phailin weakened significantly after making landfall as a Category 4 storm, with sustained winds of up to 210 kilometers per hour (131 miles per hour), according to Indian meteorologists. Those numbers were slightly lower than the last advisory issued by the U.S. Navy’s Hawaii-based Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

Runners protest shutdown of park PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dozens of people staged a protest run through Valley Forge National Historical Park on Sunday after a runner and others were ticketed amid the government shutdown. Since the shutdown closed the popular site near Philadelphia, marathoner John Bell and others have gotten $100 tickets for allegedly violating the closure order, mostly for parking in the park. Several running groups took part in what some called a “Patriot Run” to call attention to the shutdown.

43 dead, dozens missing in Mali KOUBI, Mali (AP) — Mahmoudou Ibrahim combed the waters frantically for his family after they and hundreds of other passengers were catapulted into the Niger River when their boat capsized. Amid the cries for help in the darkness of night, he listened in vain for the sound of their voices. On Sunday morning, crews pulled the bloated bodies of three of his children from the river: 1-year-old Ahmadou, 3-year-old Salamata and 4-year-old Fatouma. There is still no sign of his wife, Zeinabou, or their 5-year-old twin girls, who were last seen curled up on mats aboard the ship. “The pain that I feel today is beyond excruciating,” he said from the village cemetery where he buried the remains of his three children Sunday in the sandy dirt.

By nightfall, a total of 43 corpses had been recovered from the river since the accident Friday night, said Hamadoun Cisse, a local official in charge of tracking casualty figures. Passengers on the capsized boat said they believed hundreds of people were on the overladen vessel when it sank Friday. But the ship’s owner did not have a full list of who was on board, making it impossible to determine the actual number of people missing. The boat was headed from the central port of Mopti to the northern desert city of Timbuktu, packed full of people traveling ahead of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha this week. Many Malians choose to travel by river even though the journey takes several days and nights because it is easier than traversing the region’s poor desert roads.

UNION BEACH, N.J. (AP) — Bart Sutton fought with his insurance company for a year over what it would cost to rebuild his flood-damaged home, then gave up in frustration and tore it down. A week later, the money came through. Simone and Ken Dannecker fixed their flooded home themselves, deciding they couldn’t wait for insurance and government aid as green mold threatened to overrun it. Now, with the work nearly done, they are all but bankrupt — and still can’t afford to elevate the house they fought so hard to stay in. Gigi Liaguno-Dorr needs $2 million to rebuild the bayfront restaurant that was one of the town’s major employers; she has less than a quarter of that and says she has never felt so helpless. For these three families in Union Beach, a blue-collar enclave clinging precariously to the Raritan Bay, full recovery from Superstorm Sandy is still elusive nearly a year after the storm pummeled the state Oct. 29. That’s also true to thousands of others at the Jersey shore; in Ocean County alone, the county planning board

estimated 26,000 people were unable to return to their homes as of last month. Michael Drewniak, a spokesman for Gov. Chris Christie, could not estimate how many storm-damaged homes remain unoccupied. Many families are living elsewhere while their homes are being rebuilt, and “a large number” of bungalows and small homes that were destroyed or severely damaged were second homes for people living in their primary residences, he said. The state taxation division said more than 40,000 properties suffered a total of $4.3 billion in lost value from storm damage. Joanne Gwin’s home in Silverton section of Toms River was wrecked by the storm. Her insurance company paid $101,100 on a $250,000 policy, and she is appealing that decision, still living in a rental a year later. “As of today, we are no closer to moving home than we were on Nov. 2, 2012,” she said. “We are paying taxes and insurance on a home we can no longer live in. We are now at a standstill, waiting for the next step. What IS the next step? Does anybody know? We are looking at another

Christmas with a tabletop tree in an apartment instead of the 9-foot Christmas tree that has always been our tradition. We want to go home.” To be sure, remarkable progress has been made in recovering from one of the worst storms ever to hit New Jersey and the second-costliest in the nation’s history at $65 billion, trailing only Hurricane Katrina’s $125 billion cost. Tens of millions of dollars have been spent rebuilding boardwalks and oceanfront attractions crucial to the tourist trade, and thousands of homes have been repaired, either with the help of government aid or through a mix of private insurance and savings. As of Sept. 30, $5.6 billion in aid had been paid out to New Jersey storm victims, including $3.5 billion from the National Flood Insurance Program and $415 million in FEMA grants to individuals or households. Sutton, who works for a regional sewerage authority, fought with his insurance company for nearly a year over the damage to his Union Beach home. Finally, he gave up in frustration and tore it down.

At least 89 dead in stampede NEW DELHI (AP) — A stampede by masses of Hindu worshippers crossing a bridge to a temple in central India left at least 89 people dead Sunday, police said. The chaos broke out as rumors spread that the bridge was collapsing over the Sindh River, D.K. Arya, deputy inspector general of police in the Chambal region of Madhya Pradesh state, told the Press Trust of India. Among the 89 people killed by the crush were 17 children and 31 women, he said. Hours later, relatives were searching for missing loved ones among the bodies that were lying grouped together on the bridge.

Woman helps raise her brother BY OLIVIA MITCHELL

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.� — Lao Tzu Being 10 years older than my brother Sammy, I played a huge role in his care and have always shared an unbreakable bond with him. When he was an infant, I would marvel at him while he slept, in awe of how little and perfect he was. I admired this little being with all my heart and daydreamed about what he would be like when he was my age. When Sammy was diagnosed with autism around 3 years old, my world crumbled. I remember feeling angry, confused and afraid for him. For days after his diagnosis, I could not look at my little brother without a flood of tears. My greatest concern was how he would be accepted by others. I wanted people to see Sammy just as I did, not labeled by autism. One day, shortly after his 4th birthday, Sammy walked over to me with a new toy truck in both hands and said, “Break it!� He handed me the small toy truck. My grandfather walked up to us and, with a screwdriver in hand, said, “Give it to me; he wants us to break it for him.� I looked at them both with confusion. My grandfather then said: “He’s been having me break all of his toys. I think that’s how he understands them. How they’re built, what they’re made of.� I handed him the truck and watched as my grandfather unscrewed the pieces. When he got to the

parts with wheels and gears, Sammy’s eyes lit up with wonder. His gaze was focused on the pieces coming off the truck one by one. He took each piece in his hands as it came off and examined it thoroughly. It was clear to me now that my brother saw things so differently than I did. He knew that the pieces worked together harmoniously, but also that each part was unique. He saw that each part had its own special purpose. It occurred to me that just like the truck, all of the “pieces� that fit together to make Sammy were pieces placed together perfectly for him. Each piece together created my brother, who sees the world in a different light from anyone I have ever known. His actions at 4 years old helped me to understand that we are all fit together in a different way for our own specific purpose. I now see the beauty in these differences. VISIT WWW.CHICKENSOUP.

the organization she never left. Now, 22 years later, Meeks serves as the coordinator for the organization. “There’s a need and it needs to be filled. This has been my longest career move,” she said. “People sort of think I’m the boss. I oversee the daily operations.” Boss or not, Meeks spends plenty of time on the front lines of the organization, never afraid to pick up a bag of donated clothing and start sorting. “Well, you know, that’s what you do,” she said. “I’ve been here long enough to see what we can do, and our place in the community has become more pronounced as time has gone on. Right now, there are a number of seniors who use our services, as well as

families, not because they’re unemployed but because they don’t have enough hours.” The organization is now starting to get ready for its busiest time of the year, the Christmas holiday season. That’s when the LaGrange County Clothes and Food Basket also opens its Christmas Bureau. That operation provides free holiday toys for the children of families in need. To make that happen, the Clothes and Food Basket asks for donations of new socks, hats, gloves and underwear — items always in high demand during the cold winter season — as well as toys. Meeks said if someone is thinking about volunteering their time to one organization and thinks they might want to volunteer at the

Clothes and Food Basket, all that person need do is witness the work being done there. “Once a person starts to give their time here, they stay,” she said. “My wish would be that everyone in LaGrange County would come in and see what we do. Most people have no idea. They might drop over some clothing in the chute but never come in. People who do come in are just amazed at what we have here, and that can bring in a lot of volunteers.” Meeks said she is convinced that the organization, like each year before, will once again will rise to the challenge of serving LaGrange County’s needy this holiday season. “It just seems like the Lord answers a prayer if we have a need,” she said.

Gunmen kidnap seven Red Cross workers in Syria BEIRUT (AP) — Gunmen abducted six Red Cross workers and a Syrian Red Crescent volunteer after stopping their convoy early Sunday in northwestern Syria, a spokesman said, in the latest high-profile kidnapping in the country’s civil war. Simon Schorno, a spokesman for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Damascus, said the assailants snatched the seven aid workers

from their convoy near the town of Saraqeb in Idlib province around 11:30 a.m. local time (0830 GMT) as the team was returning to Damascus. He declined to provide the nationalities of the six ICRC employees, and said it was not clear who was behind the attack Syria’s state news agency, quoting an anonymous official, said the gunmen opened fire on the ICRC team’s four vehicles before seizing the Red Cross workers.

The news agency blamed “terrorists,” a term the government uses to refer to those opposed to President Bashar Assad. Schorno said the team of seven had been in the field since Oct. 10 to assess the medical situation in the area and to look at how to provide medical aid. He said the part of northern Syria where they were seized “by definition is a difficult area to go in,” and the team was traveling with armed guards.


Middleton was also referring to the fact the corporation is celebrating its 50th year of incorporation when the Orland, Mongo, Flint and Stroh schools all became one and Prairie Heights was born. Details were given of each Mighty Oak individual’s accomplishments and afterward, they each commented on their honor: • Bremer is active with the Mongo Lions, serves as the Leo Club adviser, assists in the Mongo community and is considered a mentor to many. • Hillard is currently chief of the Stroh Fire Department, which he has a 47-year association with training, answering emergency calls and assisting with the ambulance at Prairie Heights athletic events. He has been chief the last seven or eight years and joked he’s trying to make it to 50 years of fire department service.


Four individuals were honored with Mighty Oak awards from the Prairie Heights Schools Sunday at the annual Heritage Festival. Those receiving the awards were, from left, Alice Bremer, Bob Ledgerwood, Hillard Gayheart and Pat Long. The individuals were nominated for being well-rounded in the Prairie Heights community.

“I don’t expect to be rewarded,” Hillard said. “I only expect rewards in heaven.” • Ledgerwood is president of the Prairie Heights Schools Board of Education and is serving in his second term, while being active in the community. “It’s been an honor to move into this community

and I want to praise God,” Ledgerwood said. • Long is a retired principal and educator in the corporation. She was honored for always putting children first and staying involved in the schools despite being retired. “I can’t tell you what a joy it was teaching your children,” Long said.

Briefs • SEC sets AP poll record with 8 teams The Southeastern Conference set a record for most schools in The Associated Press college football poll with eight ranked teams. The Top 25 was shaken Sunday after seven ranked teams lost, including five to teams that were unranked or lower ranked. Stanford dropped eight spots and Michigan fell from the poll. The top four was unchanged, with No. 1 Alabama receiving 55 of 60 first-place votes. No. 2 is Oregon, followed by Clemson and Ohio State. Florida State moved up to No. 5 to set up a top-five matchup at Clemson next week. Stanford lost 27-20 at Utah and is now No. 13, becoming the first top-10 team this season to lose to an unranked team. Michigan drops out after losing 43-40 in four overtimes at Penn State. No. 24 Auburn moved into the rankings for the first time this season to join No. 6 LSU, No. 7 Texas A&M, No. 11 South Carolina, No. 14 Missouri, No. 15 Georgia and No. 22 Florida. Missouri jumped 11 spots after a 41-26 victory at Georgia (4-2). The record for most teams from one conference in a regular-season poll had been seven, done many times, including this season by the SEC. The ACC and Big Ten have also reached seven ranked teams in season. The SEC also had eight teams ranked in the 2011 preseason poll.

INDIANAPOLIS — The sectional pairings were announced Sunday evening for the 41st annual Indiana High School Athletic Association Football State Tournament presented by the Indianapolis Colts. A record 322 teams will take part in the tournament, including a new area team at The Howe School after a long absence from the gridiron. There is a new format this season with an extra class added for the biggest schools in the state. Sectional play in classes 6A and 5A will start on Nov. 1 with the exception of two first-round

games in Class 5A sectionals that will start on Oct. 25. There are no area teams in those big school classes. Everybody will get going locally with first-round games on Oct. 25. There will be one matchup of KPC Media Group teams and that will be in Class 4A, Sectional 19 as Angola (4-4) will host DeKalb (0-8). Baron interim coach Mike DeVos will be taking on his alma mater. The Barons-Hornets winner will play in a semifinal game against the winner of the Bishop Dwenger (5-3) at Northridge (6-2) first-round game. Former

East Noble assistant coach Tom Wogoman is leading the Raiders to only their second winning season in the past 20 years. East Noble (6-2) will host longtime perennial 3A power NorthWood (4-4) in round one. The winner of that matchup will play the winner of the Leo (8-0) at Wawasee (4-4) game. In Class 3A Sectional 17, Lakeland will play Concordia for the second time in three weeks. But the rematch will be played in LaGrange after the Cadets beat the Lakers 35-3 Friday night in Fort Wayne. The winner of the rematch will play the survivor of

the Bellmont (4-4) at Whitko (5-3) contest. West Noble (2-6) will play at Bishop Luers in the first round. Luers is 0-8, but is not the typical winless team. Three of its losses have come by six points or less. The Knights have also won state championships the past four seasons in Class 2A and moved up to 3A because of the IHSAA’s Success Factor. The Chargers-Luers winner will play the winner of Garrett (4-4) at Heritage (5-3). The Railroaders and Patriots will play each other two consecutive weeks. The first SEE DRAW, PAGE B2

Dodgers’ star may be hurt LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Dodgers’ offense is struggling, and they might have to face St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright without their top hitter in Game 3 of the NL championship series. Shortstop Hanley Ramirez had a CT scan on his painful left ribs Sunday, and the results weren’t available by mid-afternoon. He got hit by a pitch from Joe Kelly in the opener but stayed in to play all 13 innings of a 3-2 loss Friday. Ramirez was a late scratch for Game 2, a 1-0 defeat that left Los Angeles trailing the Cardinals 2-0 in the best-of-seven series. He rested Sunday, along with the rest of the team, which didn’t hit on the field. “We’re just working on that, taking the pain away so I can go,” Ramirez said. “Even if it’s cracked or something, I’m going to be able to get out there if we can take the pain away. It feels the same, but that doesn’t stop me from trying to remain positive for tomorrow.” Ramirez had a .638 slugging percentage during the regular season, and the Dodgers desperately need an offensive boost to get back into the best-of-seven series. They batted .184 in the first two games on the road, including 1 for 16 (.063) with runners in scoring position. “We’ve talked about it. It always comes back to, can you get that key out and can you get the key hit?” manager Don Mattingly said. “It doesn’t get any easier for us with Wainwright. He seems like he’s always coming up big.” Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier didn’t start Saturday, but he appeared as a pinch-hitter and ended the game with a strikeout. He’s been bothered by shin splints, although he made his first start since Sept. 13 in the series opener. “It’s definitely a thing where we need all the hands we can to find a way to get back in the series,” Ethier said. Wainwright predicted both Ramirez and Ethier would play.


Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is chased by Cleveland Browns linebacker Barkev-

ious Mingo in the second quarter of an NFL football game Sunday in Cleveland.

Stafford leads Lions to win CLEVELAND (AP) — The Lions were lifeless and listless at halftime. Matthew Stafford snapped his teammates out of its strange funk just in time. Stafford threw three of his four touchdown passes in the second half, rallying Detroit to a 31-17 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Lions (4-2) outscored the Browns 24-0 in the second half, sealing their win when Stafford hooked up with tight end Joseph Fauria with 2:01 left. Fauria caught three TD passes for the Lions, who played like a completely different team in the second half after being dominated up front and trailing 17-7 at half. The Browns (3-3) had their chances at a comeback end when quarterback Brandon Weeden’s baffling shovel pass with 4:36 left was intercepted by linebacker DeAndre Levy. Lions running back Reggie Bush finished with 135 total yards, 121 in the second half. At halftime, Bush had touched the ball just seven times. But

Stafford went to the versatile back whenever he needed a big play. Stafford finished 25 of 43 for 248 yards. He completed eight passes to wide receiver Kris Durham, who took over as Detroit’s top target with superstar Calvin Johnson not himself with a balky right knee. Johnson, who missed last week’s loss at Green Bay, had 3 catches for 25 yards. Weeden, making his first start since Week 2, finished 26 of 43 for 292 yards, but will be remembered for his ill-advised pass when Cleveland was driving for a possible tying touchdown. Trailing 24-17 and at Detroit’s 44 with a first down, Weeden was pressured. Instead of throwing the ball away or taking the sack to keep the drive going, Weeden tried a pitch to fullback Chris Ogbonnaya near the sideline and was picked off by Levy. It was another poor decision by Weeden, the second-year QB thrust back into the starting lineup after Brian Hoyer

sustained a season-ending knee injury against Buffalo on Oct. 3. Stafford made all the right moves in the second half. He was 15 of 21 for 165 yards and three TDs in the final 30 minutes. Detroit’s defense stiffened after halftime and limited the Browns to 6 yards and no first downs in the third quarter. Fauria’s second TD reception, a 23-yarder early in the fourth quarter, gave the Lions a 21-17 lead. Fauria got behind linebacker Craig Robertson and made a leaping catch in traffic just inside the goal line before celebrating with a dunk over the goal post. Fauria has seven receptions this season, four for TDs. Stafford’s 18-yard TD pass to Bush had pulled the Lions within 17-14 in the third. Bush’s score capped a 79-yard drive for the Lions, who gained just 109 yards in the first half. The possession began with Bush dropping a short pass, but he more than made up for it with his catch and darting run.

Peterson says he was determined to play


Adrian Peterson, right, shakes hands with Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton following a 35-10 Panthers win in an NFL football game Sunday in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Adrian Peterson would have been forgiven for sitting this one out. Two days earlier, Peterson’s 2-year-old son was killed in an alleged case of child abuse in Sioux Falls, S.D. The alleged assailant is in jail, and Peterson rushed to the hospital Thursday to see the child before vowing to play against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Even after his Minnesota Vikings were thumped 35-10 by the Panthers and booed off the field by their home crowd, Peterson said he never wavered in his decision to play. “I was set on it,” said Peterson, who was held to 62 yards on 10 carries. “I just look at things and I

don’t ask people to understand my mindset and how I think. Anything bad, I try to take good from it. That’s the way I approach life in all situations. I never thought about not playing. It was all about just going out there and praying that I have the strength to get through and help my team. That was my focus.” Fans held signs that read “Stay Strong 28” and “Prayers for Adrian,” and several teammates offered hugs and well wishes before the game for their MVP. “I just prayed and asked God to give me the strength just to get through the game, just play and focus,” Peterson said. “And for the most part, I did. It was a terrible SEE PETERSON, PAGE B2





Tom Brady’s 17-yard touchdown pass to Kenbrell Thompkins with 5 seconds left gave the New England Patriots a wild 30-27 win and knocked the New Orleans Saints from the ranks of the unbeaten Sunday. It capped a 70-yard drive in which the Patriots marched downfield with no timeouts after getting the ball with 1:08 to go. The Saints (5-1) had taken a 24-23 lead with 3:29 remaining on Drew Brees’ 34-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills, but couldn’t put away New England. The Patriots (5-1) survived an interception by Keenan Lewis on their first snap after Garrett Hartley’s 39-yard field goal made it 27-23. PACKERS 19, RAVENS 17 Aaron Rodgers threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson, Mason Crosby kicked four field goals and Green Bay held on to beat Baltimore. Eddie Lacy rushed for 120 yards to fuel the Packers’ first road win of the season. Green Bay (3-2) took a 16-3 lead into the fourth quarter and was up 19-10 with 4 minutes left, but the Ravens (3-3) kept coming back. After Baltimore closed to 19-17 on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Dallas Clark with 2:04 remaining, Rodgers clinched the victory with a 52-yard completion to Jermichael Finley on a third-and-3. Rodgers went 17 for 32 for 315 yards. Despite playing without injured linebacker Clay Matthews, the Packers limited Baltimore to 47 yards rushing and registered five sacks, including three by A.J. Hawk. The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens had won 13 straight at home against NFC foes. BRONCOS 35, JAGUARS 19 Peyton Manning threw for two scores and Knowshon Moreno ran for three to lead Denver to a tougher-than-expected victory over winless Jacksonville. The Broncos (6-0) came in as 27-point favorites, and much of the pregame hype centered on whether they’d cover the spread and when Manning would come out of the game. Neither happened. Manning finished 28 for 42 for 295 yards, but lost two fumbles and threw a pick-6 — a 59-yard interception return by Paul Posluszny that pulled the Jaguars (0-6) within 14-12 at halftime. It was a two-point game late in the third quarter, before Moreno scored his last touchdown, an 8-yard run, for a 28-19 lead. Moreno finished with 42 yards. Justin Blackmon had 14 catches for 190 yards for Jacksonville. CHIEFS 24, RAIDERS 7 Jamaal Charles ran for two touchdowns,

NFL Roundup • the Kansas City defense harassed Oakland quarterback Terrelle Pryor into throwing three second-half interceptions and the Chiefs remained unbeaten. After winning just twice last season, Kansas City (6-0) continued the secondbest start in franchise history. The Chiefs won their first nine games during the 2003 season. The Chiefs piled up 10 sacks while ending a three-game skid to the Raiders (2-4), and a six-game losing streak against them at Arrowhead Stadium. Pryor threw for 216 yards and a touchdown, but his interceptions proved costly. STEELERS 19, JETS 6 Ben Roethlisberger threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders, Shaun Suisham kicked four field goals, and Pittsburgh won its first game of the season. The Steelers (1-4) were off to their worst start since 1968, when they lost their first six games during a season in which they finished 2-11-1. Sunday’s victory was also the 600th in franchise history, including the postseason, as Pittsburgh became only the fourth team to reach the milestone. Pittsburgh was coming off a bye-week break and appeared quite a bit sharper than New York (3-3), which had a short week to prepare after a 30-28 win at Atlanta last Monday night. PANTHERS 35, VIKINGS 10 Cam Newton threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score, and Carolina romped past Adrian Peterson and Minnesota. Peterson finished with 62 yards on 10 carries and 21 yards on three receptions, but the Vikings (1-4) trailed the whole game and didn’t have much use after halftime for Peterson. Matt Cassel threw two interceptions, both to Mike Mitchell, and the Panthers (2-3) responded each time with a touchdown. Whether the team was distracted by the tragedy or not, the Vikings were thoroughly embarrassed on both sides of the ball. 49ERS 32, CARDINALS 20 Vernon Davis caught touchdown passes of 61 and 35 yards and finished with a career-best 180 yards receiving, leading San Francisco to its third straight victory. Colin Kaepernick threw for 252 yards and Frank Gore ran for 101 yards on 25 carries. Kendall Hunter ran for a 6-yard touchdown that sealed it for the 49ers (4-2) with 6:35 remaining. Rookie safety Eric Reid made his team-leading third interception and also recovered a fumble to stop an Arizona drive deep in 49ers territory in the third quarter. San Francisco forced four turnovers for the second

straight game. RAMS 38, TEXANS 13 Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes, St. Louis added a score on defense and special teams and the Rams stunned mistake-prone Houston. The Rams (3-3) were up 24-6 early in the third quarter before rookie Daren Bates returned Keshawn Martin’s fumble on a kickoff return for a touchdown. Alec Ogletree pushed the lead to 38-6 when he took an interception by T.J. Yates back 98 yards for a touchdown. Yates was in after Matt Schaub sustained an apparent right ankle injury. Schaub didn’t have a turnover after throwing six interceptions, three of them returned for touchdowns in the past three games. SEAHAWKS 20, TITANS 13 Marshawn Lynch ran for two touchdowns and had 155 all-purpose yards, Richard Sherman came up with his third interception of the season, and Seattle finally shook Tennessee in the fourth quarter. Seattle (5-1) won its 11th straight at home despite a long list of mistakes that allowed the Titans (3-3) to hang around into the fourth. There was a careless turnover, missed defensive assignments and a comical muffed field goal attempt that led to the Titans’ only touchdown on the final play of the first half. But the Seahawks made enough plays thanks to Lynch, quarterback Russell Wilson and Sherman’s interception to remain on top of the NFC West. Lynch had TD runs of 3 yards and 1 yard. BENGALS 27, BILLS 24 OT Mike Nugent hit a 43-yard field goal with 6:44 left in overtime. Brandon Tate’s 29-yard punt return to the Bills 33 set up the decisive score. Andy Dalton went 26 of 40 for 337 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception. He bounced back after a two-game touchdown drought and led the Bengals (4-2) to their first road win of the season. The Bills (2-4) were led by quarterback Thad Lewis, starting in place of injured rookie EJ Manuel. Lewis went 19 of 32 for 216 yards and two touchdowns after being promoted off the practice squad last week. Both touchdown passes came in the fourth quarter, including a 40-yarder to Marquise Goodwin with 1:08 remaining. Lewis also scored a touchdown rushing in making only his second career start. EAGLES 31, BUCCANEERS 20 Nick Foles threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth, leading Philadelphia over winless Tampa Bay. Foles finished a long first-quarter scoring drive with a 4-yard run and threw TD passes of 12 and 36 yards to DeSean Jackson.

Keselowski finally gets a break, and a victory CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — It was just another surreal moment in this disappointing season for defending champion Brad Keselowski. He pulled away from his pit stall with his jack planted underneath his car. The jack clattered and clanged as Keselowski dragged it around the track for what should have been one race-ruining lap around Charlotte Motor Speedway. Instead, Keselowski finally caught a break. A late caution — one that ruined Jimmie Johnson’s shot at a record seventh Sprint Cup Series win at Charlotte — gave Keselowski the chance to make an electric final dash to the finish and end a 37-race losing streak Saturday night. It gave the reigning champ his first victory of the season in a year in which he’s challenged for victories, but for one reason or another couldn’t close the deal. It made him ineligible to defend his championship, so Keselowski’s win was the rare victory for a non-Chase driver in a “postseason” race. Kasey Kahne at Phoenix in 2011 was the last non-Chase winner. “We’ve had speed in our cars. There’s been weeks where we’ve had the execution, not as many as we want, but we haven’t always had those pieces together, and then there’s been weeks where we’ve had the speed and execution, we’ve just had some rotten luck,” Keselowski said. “It’s just been one of


way to lose, but we can learn from this, make some corrections and get back on track.” The Vikings (1-4) delivered as flat of a performance as they’ve had in recent memory to fall even further back in the muddled NFC playoff picture. Matt Cassel was intercepted twice, the defense was burned for big play after big play and the Vikings trailed 28-3 with 6 minutes left in the third quarter to send fans heading for the exits. The stout Carolina defense made things tough for Peterson. He was able to rip off one run of 31 yards, but was bottled up for the rest of the afternoon and was held to his lowest yardage output since Week 2 last season. Peterson declined to discuss the relationship he had with the boy, who lived with his mother in Sioux Falls. The mother’s boyfriend, Joseph Patterson, is charged with aggravated

those years where you say, ‘How much more can they throw at you?’ I think we ran out of things for them to throw at us … with the jack and we still found a way to win, so that was very special.” The caution with 27 laps remaining was for debris on the backstretch, as Johnson had a healthy lead in a fairly uneventful race. Before the yellow, it seemed certain Johnson would win and pass Matt Kenseth for the Sprint Cup Series points lead at the halfway point of the Chase, while Kenseth would likely catch teammate Kyle Busch in the closing laps of the race to finish third. Keselowski was an afterthought. “That last caution there at the end kind of reset it for us and gave us the opportunity to get in Victory Lane,” Keselowski crew chief Paul Wolfe said. Everybody headed to pit road, where Kasey Kahne and Jeff Gordon were the only two drivers to take two tires. They were the first two back onto the track, while Johnson led everybody else off as the first driver with four fresh tires. Only Johnson lost four spots on the restart with 23 laps remaining, while Keselowski picked his way through traffic from sixth to second. Once he set his sights on leader Kahne, he stalked him around the track until he could make a pass for the lead stick with nine laps remaining. The victory gave team owner

Roger Penske a win from every one of his drivers this season: Keselowski, AJ Allmendinger, Ryan Blaney, Sam Hornish Jr. and Joey Logano in NASCAR, and Helio Castroneves and Will Power in IndyCar. “When it was time to go, we raced the best, and it was Brad behind the wheel,” Penske said. “It wasn’t a fuel economy run. It was him digging deep and bringing us to Victory Lane.” Kahne was second and followed by Kenseth, who increased his lead in the standings by one marker to four points over Johnson as the series shifts to Talladega. Johnson, who wound up fourth, never saw the debris that cost him the victory. But Kenseth, who figured he was going to finish third either way, understood Johnson’s frustration. “Obviously, with Jimmie dominating, and he didn’t get the win, you know he’s going to have, I don’t know the right word to say here, (it’s going to) bother him more,” Kenseth said. “You know he’s going to think about it more. I honestly didn’t look, and I didn’t even think about it.” Nothing changed behind the leaders. Kevin Harvick is third in the standings, 29 points out, followed by Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch, who had dropped from third to fifth at Kansas a week ago and couldn’t regain any position following his fifth-place finish Saturday night.

PETERSON: Running back relies on faith, teammates

assault and aggravated battery. “Can we focus on football? I’m not really trying to get into details on that,” Peterson said. “We just got blown out by (25) points. So let’s focus on football and what the Minnesota Vikings can do to get better.” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said he thought his star running back handled himself well during the trying circumstances. “It’s a difficult, difficult situation and there are a lot of people trying to support him within in the organization, his teammates as well,” Frazier said. Panthers safety Mike Mitchell, who had two interceptions and a sack, sought out Peterson during the game to offer some words of encouragement. Mitchell said he mentioned to the deeply religious Peterson the Bible verse Jeremiah 29:11 about God providing hope for the future.

“I told him that to keep that in his heart as he continues to take this challenge going forward,” Mitchell said. Peterson said he is leaning on his teammates and family to help him through, and he will continue to look to the football field as a shelter, as he has throughout his life during the toughest of times. And the Vikings will have to lean on Peterson if they hope to get things turned around before it’s too late. “In life situations, and in football, you’ve got to continue to believe,” Peterson said. “We’ve got to get everyone with that same mindset, to believe no matter what the circumstances. We’re 1-4. We’ve got to believe and have faith that we’re going to be able to turn it around and accomplish our goals.” That’s the way I think. We just have to get everyone thinking the same way.”

Serbia’s Novak Djokovic celebrates with his trophy after defeating Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro in their final match of the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament.

Djokovic continues dominance with another title in China SHANGHAI (AP) — Novak Djokovic maintained his dominance in China by holding off Juan Martin del Potro 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 (3) on Sunday to capture a second Shanghai Masters title and extend his winning streak in the country to 20 consecutive matches. The Serb completed a back-to-back sweep of titles at the China Open in Beijing and the Shanghai Masters for the second straight year. He’s now won seven titles overall in China — the most he’s won in any country. Djokovic had to overcome a strong challenge from del Potro, who fended off two match points late in the third set, but couldn’t put any pressure on Djokovic’s serve down the stretch and appeared to fade in the tiebreaker. “You’re a great person and an even better player on the court,” Djokovic said to del Potro during the trophy presentation. “I’m sorry you lost today. You deserve this trophy equally.”

Rockets take preseason NBA game from Pacers in Taiwan TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — It was a perfect homecoming for Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin in the Taiwanese capital of Taipei. Lin, whose parents emigrated from Taiwan to the United States in the 1970s, scored 17 points and went 3-4 from the three-point line to help the Rockets overcome the Indiana Pacers 107-98 in an exhibition game played before a capacity crowd of 13,686. James Harden led all Rockets scorers with 21 and had three 3-pointers of his own. Paul George’s 19 points led the Pacers. George Hill contributed 17, but suffered what coach Frank Vogel called “a mild ankle sprain” in a third quarter scramble. Vogel said that Hill’s condition will be monitored in the coming days. Lin was clearly the crowd favorite and didn’t disappoint with a dazzling array of clutch shooting and pinpoint passing. His play earned him accolades from Rockets coach Kevin McHale, who said that all the hard work Lin put in over the summer is giving him the boost he needs to cope with the immense pressure he feels at being one of the most closely watched NBA players in Asia.

Thmopson wins LPGA Malaysia KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Lexi Thompson shot a 2-under 69 to win LPGA Malaysia by four strokes Sunday, giving the 18-year-old American her first victory of the season. “Words can’t even describe the feeling I have right now,” she said. Thompson finished at 19-under 265 to end South Korea’s dominance at this tournament. This was her second career LPGA title, following the Navistar LPGA Classic 2011. “It’s sort of like a rerun from Navistar, just having that feeling walking up to the 18th green, embracing the fans and just knowing you have the win under your belt,” she said. “It’s very big. I have worked so hard between this whole last year since Navistar. It pays off and means so much to me.”

Lynn claims masters course win in Portugal VILAMOURA, Portugal (AP) — David Lynn shot an 8-under 63 Sunday to rally from six shots back and win the Portugal Masters, ending a nine-year wait for his second European Tour title. Lynn was tied for 16th entering the fourth round, six shots behind leader Paul Waring. He started with two birdies and added three more on his last five holes at the Oceanico Victoria course for an 18-under total of 266. The Englishman, who turns 40 next Sunday, then watched as Justin Walters of South Africa almost caught him with four straight birdies before falling one stroke short with a par on the 18th hole. Lynn said he was inspired by Scott Jamieson’s performance on Saturday when he matched a European Tour record of 60. “Today was just a case of, I’ve got to go out there and make as many birdies as I can,” Lynn said.

Merkel stands firm with Greece Angela Merkel, known as “Mrs. Nein,” is back for a third term as German chancellor, which is good news for a Europe that needs a grown-up to keep telling it, “No!” Greece, in particular, needs to hear that message as it tries again to evade more of its debt obligations and wiggle out of restricThe latest country tions on how seeking relief at the much its expense of Germany government spends. and the other Merkel sailed to financially prudent re-election European nations is with an impressive Greece — again. 41.5 percent of the vote last month. She is busy forming a coalition government, skillfully playing the Green party against the Social Democrats who are her most likely partner. She may need to compromise on some domestic issues, such as establishing a national minimum wage. But when it comes to the debtor nations of southern Europe that want their obligations wiped away, Merkel can count on the strong approval of her people when she says, you guessed it, “Nein.” The latest country seeking relief at the expense of Germany and the other financially prudent European nations is Greece — again. This would be the third bailout in a little more than three years for the Aegean nation. The International Monetary Fund is pressing Germany and other governments to forgive large amounts of the remaining debt that Greece piled up during a decade-long borrowing binge. Under managing director Christine Lagarde, a former lawyer at Chicagobased Baker & McKenzie who took over in mid-2011, the IMF has backed off its insistence on austerity measures, saying the pain those measures caused was, er, painful. It is now pushing for a sharp reduction in the debt burden of Greece. The IMF may have gone so far as to leak secret internal documents showing that its members recognized, accurately, that the first bailout of Greece in 2010 was mostly aimed at shoring up faltering European banks and the euro currency union. … Saying “no” is difficult because Greece has suffered terribly in spite of its two bailouts. Six years of recession have led to record levels of unemployment, business failures, pay cuts, pension reductions and other fiscal belt-tightening. A generation of young Greeks has been unable to start careers because opportunity has evaporated. Polling suggests that many Greek citizens place the blame for this disaster where it belongs: at the feet of their political leaders who used every available means to squander the country’s future through irresponsible borrowing and spending. To an extent, Greece is starting to right itself. It projects that its long, long recession will end next year. Tourism, a vital industry, is staging a comeback. … Merkel has not ruled out aid to Greece. Far from it. The Greeks still are part of the euro currency union, and their fellow members have a financial and political interest in keeping the eurozone intact. But there is no reason for Merkel to forgo repayment of money already lent. After her election, Merkel let the Greeks know that she will not be writing any blank checks, no matter how sincere the promises to pay the money back some day. As Merkel put it: “We should not stop exercising pressure for the agreed reforms to be carried out.” In other words, to those who want money for nothing: “Nein!”

Letters to The Editor • Fire sprinkler systems save property, lives To the editor: On Saturday, Sept. 28, at around 3:45 p.m. an employee of Champs Sports at the Glenbrook Square Mall in Fort Wayne noticed black smoke pouring out of a storage room in the back. As customers and employees were evacuating, the store’s fire sprinkler system was automatically activated by the heat of the blaze. The Fort Wayne Fire Department responded to the scene within five minutes and was able to safely enter the

store and extinguish the blaze that was contained to the backroom of the store thanks to the fire sprinkler system. Once the mall was deemed safe, customers and mall workers were able to reenter the mall and continue to work and shop. Glenbrook Square Mall is one of the largest malls in northern Indiana and losing such an essential hub of commerce so close to the holiday season could have been devastating to residents and business owners. The capability of a properly installed and maintained fire sprinkler system to contain the spread of fire and in many cases extinguish the blaze before first responders even arrive

on the scene is the reason that so many important structures have these life and property saving systems. Places of commerce like the Glenbrook Square Mall are not the only types of structures that can and do benefit from these systems. Places of worship, places of business, and most importantly the places that you call home can all be protected by a fire sprinkler system. I encourage you all to learn how to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community from the ravages of fire. Ron Brown Great Lakes Regional Manager National Fire Sprinkler Association

• Should we call in Bob Dole, who loved a deadlock? You must be kidding. In a shameful exhibition of disrespect, Republican senators let him sit in stunned mortification in his wheelchair in the chamber he once strode like a colossus rather than approve his treaty to assist the disabled. Give Bob Strauss a ring? The Democratic national chairman who was a Republican president’s choice as ambassador to the Soviet Union? Dream on. The fact that one (Dole) is 90 and the other (Strauss) nearly 95 tells how antiquarian this notion is. And by the way, Lloyd Cutler has been dead for eight years, Clark Clifford for 15 and Dean Burch for 22. • Power sometimes resides outside elected office. We are not speaking here of the people in whose interests Washington is supposed to work. We are speaking of unelected power brokers who, throughout American history, have exerted outsized influence. In the past they have been figures like Jay Gould, whose analogues today are on Wall Street. Or church figures, like Jonathan Edwards of the Great Awakening, the New England-bred preachers of the Social Gospel, the abolitionist clergymen and their lineal descendants in the black church and rabbinate of the civil rights movement, or Father Charles Coughlin, the radio priest who turned on Franklin Roosevelt. Today’s outsiders command big money and big megaphones. This month a Bloomberg BusinessWeek cover thumped these words: “John Boehner Doesn’t Run Congress. Meet the Man Who Does.” And there, on page 71, was a picture of former senator Jim DeMint, now the head of the Heritage Foundation. He’s not alone. And he’s not in elected office. DAVID M.

Limits on use should curb compulsion DEAR ABBY: I am upset with myself for getting my granddaughter the cellphone she begged me for. I wish the phone companies would put restrictions on them. I wondered why she was feeling tired in the DEAR mornings ABBY until I caught her on the Jeanne Phillips phone at 4 a.m. She can’t get dressed in the morning because she’s texting every two minutes. When her friend, who she was always very active with, came over, the girl wound up watching a movie with me because my granddaughter would not




stop texting in her bedroom. She wasn’t like this until she got this new boyfriend, and he must have no life at all. Should I talk to his parents? It is consuming her life, morning, noon and night. I have told her she can’t have the phone until her homework is done. — FRUSTRATED GRANDMA IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR GRANDMA: You shouldn’t expect the phone company to decide what is acceptable in your home. As the adult in your household, it’s up to you to assert control. If your granddaughter lives with you, by all means talk to the boyfriend’s parents. But equally important, enforce cellphone limits. If you think she can’t be trusted not to use it after lights-out, see that she gives you her phone at bedtime. In the morning, return it to

her once she’s dressed and ready for school. And when she invites friends over, make sure she understands it is HER responsibility — not yours — to entertain them, because what she did was rude.

Agoraphobia can take many forms malls). They might fear entering a doctor’s or dentist’s office. It’s my understanding that the former New York governor Mario Cuomo hated to fly; it may have affected his otherwise successful political career. Ironically, a few people with agoraphobia fear being home alone and actually seek out places with other people — even crowded places. They behave in exactly the opposite way that most people with agoraphobia do. People with agoraphobia often suffer symptoms of severe anxiety when they are in a situation they fear. They may experience a racing heart, difficulty breathing, sweaty palms and shakiness. This just increases their desire to avoid those situations. We don’t know why agoraphobia develops. As with other forms of anxiety, agoraphobia is partly learned. For example, a person may

have a panic attack in a crowded or unfamiliar place. Afterward, the individual starts to fear ASK that similar will DOCTOR K. situations trigger more panic attacks and starts to Dr. Anthony avoid them. Treatment Komaroff depends on the particular symptoms and their severity, but it usually involves some combination of talk therapy and medication.

DEAR DOCTOR K: My daughter’s new roommate is afraid to leave a 10-block area around their apartment in New York City. She has something called “agoraphobia.” What is that? DEAR READER: Agoraphobia is the fear of certain situations in which an individual feels threatened and trapped and unable to escape. Most often, the fear is of being in open or public places. In the most severe cases, people with agoraphobia become afraid to leave home at all. Fortunately, your daughter’s roommate’s problem is not so severe. That’s a good thing; it suggests that — especially with help — she may be able to increase her range. There are other situations that some people with agoraphobia fear. They might avoid driving, or specific types of public places (such as restaurants or shopping


thoughts that are preventing them from overcoming their fears. Often CBT is combined with exposure therapy and relaxation techniques. A mental health professional might first help the patient relax, then ask the patient to imagine a situation that provokes fear. In some cases the health professional might actually accompany the patient as he or she ventures into those situations. The goal is to desensitize the patient to the situation so that it is no longer so scary. Relaxation and other psychotherapy can help many people learn to manage their fears, but some patients will also need medication. Options include antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. DR.

Bay area transit strike near SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — With a strike deadline drawing ever closer, negotiators for San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit system and its two unions prepared Sunday to resume contract talks that could prevent hundreds of thousands of commuters from having to find costlier and longer ways to work. BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said that caucuses for each side were meeting privately Sunday morning and that a mediator would bring them together “at the appropriate time.” “Teams are doing the needed work to move the process forward,” Trost said. The unions have vowed to walk off the job this morning if no new labor agreement is reached by midnight. BART workers went on strike for nearly five days in July before Gov. Jerry Brown mandated a cooling-off period that ended Friday. On Saturday, the two sides met separately for most of the day and then held an evening bargaining session that broke off at 11 p.m. PDT. No details on Saturday’s session were released, at the mediator’s request. Representatives emerged from the talks saying they had made progress, but also that much work remained before a contract agreement could be submitted to union members. Trost said BART was preparing to offer riders free trips from the East Bay to San Francisco on buses if a strike occurs. She also said a dozen managers have been certified to operate BART trains, but the transit agency isn’t planning to use them immediately.

Convicted killer could get cash from kids’ estates


Time stands still Visitors look toward the Ohio Clock outside the Senate Chamber on Capitol Hill Sunday in Washington, D.C. The Ohio Clock has stood watch over the Senate for 196 years. It stopped running shortly after noon Wednesday. Employees in the Office of the Senate Curator ordinarily

wind the clock weekly. But they are among the thousands of federal employees furloughed under the partial shutdown. The federal government remains partially shut down and faces a first-ever default between Oct. 17 and the end of the month.

Relative charged in baby’s death NEW YORK (AP) — Detectives solved the decades-old mystery of “Baby Hope,” a little girl whose body was discovered inside a picnic cooler beside a Manhattan highway in 1991, and arrested a relative of the child Saturday after he admitted he sexually assaulted and smothered her, police said Saturday. Conrado Juarez, 52, was arrested and arraigned on a felony murder charge. He pleaded not guilty. Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Melissa Mourges, chief of the cold case unit and the original prosecutor on the case in 1991, told a judge at Juarez’s arraignment that

he had admitted sexually abusing the child before smothering her. Mourges said Juarez then enlisted the aid of his sister who helped him dispose of the body. They were cousins of the girl’s father, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. The girl’s name, age and circumstances of her death were unknown for more than two decades. But earlier this week, police announced that a new tip and a DNA test had allowed them to finally identify the baby’s mother, a dramatic turnaround in one of the city’s more notorious cold cases. On Saturday, they also

revealed the girl’s name: Anjelica Castillo, age 4. The child’s naked, malnourished corpse was discovered on July 23, 1991, beside the Henry Hudson Parkway by construction workers who smelled something rotten. Detectives thought she might have been suffocated but had few other clues as to what happened. The case became an obsession for some investigators who nicknamed the girl “Baby Hope.” Hundreds of people attended a funeral for the unknown girl in 1993. Her body was exhumed for DNA testing in 2007, and then again in 2011.

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — It’s the hallmark of New York’s Son of Sam law and others like it across the nation — convicted criminals should not be able to profit from their crimes. But legal experts say the case of a Long Island mother who drowned her three children in a bathtub and is now seeking to cash in could succeed because of a loophole. Since Leatrice Brewer was never convicted — instead found not guilty by reason of mental disease — legal experts say she could make a plausible case to receive some of her children’s $350,000 estate. “The Brewer case is a novel circumstance,” said George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley. “The facts do seem to place her outside the scope of the law, although that does not mean there could not be other barriers to her recovering from the estate of her children.” Brewer, 33, slashed her daughter’s throat before drowning her and two younger brothers in 2008, believing she was saving them from the deadly effects of voodoo. Hours after the killings, she survived two suicide attempts — swallowing a concoction of home cleaning fluids and later jumping out a second-story window. She was found not guilty because of mental disease or defect in the deaths of the children, ages 1, 5 and 6, and was committed to a state psychiatric hospital. A hearing before Nassau County Surrogate Court Judge Edward McCarty next month will determine if

Brewer is entitled to a share of the proceeds from two lawsuits the children’s fathers settled with the county; they claimed social workers failed to properly monitor the woman and children. Caseworkers visited Brewer’s apartment two days before the killings and found no one home but neglected to schedule an immediate follow-up visit. Two social workers were later suspended. “As a human being, I am outraged and disgusted by this,” said attorney Thomas Foley, who represents the father of the two slain boys. “As an attorney, I have some level of understanding of why we have to go through this charade, but it is difficult to forget we are here because of the actions of a crazy person who killed her kids.” Kenneth Weinstein, a court-appointed attorney representing any possible unknown heirs who may surface, was just as blunt: “It would stand the law on its ear if she were to receive any proceeds from her own heinous, felonious conduct.” New York was the first state to enact a Son of Sam law in the 1970s following the capture of notorious serial killer David Berkowitz. Its intent was to bar Berkowitz and other criminals from profiting from their crimes through the commercial exploitation of their stories. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down the law in 1991 for violating the First Amendment’s guarantee of free expression, ruling it would have encompassed works including Henry David Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience” and “The Autobiography of Malcolm X.”
