Judge blasts emails detailing trial of Indianapolis officer FORT WAYNE (AP) — An Allen County judge blasted the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department on Wednesday after learning a police major had been emailing department leaders daily summaries of the reckless homicide and drunken driving trial of one of the city’s officers. The summaries of Officer David Bisard’s trial went to five Indianapolis public safety leaders, including Police Chief Rick Hite and Deputy Chief Val Cunningham, who is listed as a potential witness. “This is about as unprofessional as anything I’ve ever seen,” Allen Superior Court Judge John Surbeck said. Surbeck is presiding over the trial of Bisard, who is accused of driving drunk while on duty and causing a 2010 crash that killed a motorcyclist and badly injured two others. The trial was moved to Allen County because of extensive media coverage in Indianapolis. The emails are the latest issue to mar the case, which has been plagued by allegations of mishandled evidence, resignations and demotions, lawsuits and secret recordings.

ROME CITY — Nearly all East Noble teachers will receive pay raises this school year based on units earned during the 2012-2013 school year from their classroom performance. Most teachers also could receive bonuses based on units earned for perfect attendance, leadership and professional development participation. The East Noble school board Wednesday night approved the increases in base pay using money from a Performance Grant of $287,136 the school district

received about 18 months ago, said Superintendent Ann Linson. The board met at the Rome City Elementary School. As a result of a state law enacted two years ago, Indiana public school teachers no longer receive yearly increment increases based on experience or negotiated percentage increases. Pay raises must be based on teacher performance evaluations by administrators and rating teachers as “highly effective,” “effective,” “needs improvement” and “ineffective.” East Noble applied for and received the one-time performance grant for the pay increases.

Money is not coming from the school district’s general fund, but from the grant only. Due to a lack of confidence in ISTEP results and delays by the state issuing data, East Noble chose not to include ISTEP results in teacher performance evaluations for 2012-2013, Linson said. Evaluation instruments included goals set up by individual teachers. Ninety-nine percent of East Noble teachers were rated as “highly effective” and “effective” and will receive the pay raises. The 1 percent rated “needs improvement” or “ineffective” will not receive any additional money other

than their base pay. They will have an opportunity to review their evaluations with their principals and set up plans for improvement. Here is how the unit system worked: Teachers rated “effective” earned three units and “highly effective” earned four units. Corresponding amounts were added to their base pay. Units earned in other areas will be paid as stipends. Teachers received one unit for perfect attendance and one unit for missing no more than five sick or personal days. SEE TEACHERS, PAGE A8

Spooky Trail leads to lots of family fun BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — Ghosts, ghouls, vampires, zombies and everything Halloween comes out at night in the Bixler Lake Park campground Friday and Saturday nights for the Kendallville Park and Recreation Department’s Family Fun Festival and Spooky Trail. More than 1,000 people of all ages visited the Spooky Trail last year. Park and recreation director Dawn McGahen, who is coordinating the event, said more surprises have been added this year to give visitors a good scare on the 30-to-45-minute walk. “We may have to change the name from Spooky Trail to Haunted Trail or something else, because there really are some things that will scare people,” she said. The fun begins at 6 p.m. each night with the free Family

Fun Festival at the Kendallville Outdoor Recreation Complex, 524 S. Allen Chapel Road. Children can enjoy bounce houses, a mini hayride, a straw maze and Halloween-themed crafts sponsored by the Kendallville Public Library. Families can purchase or bring supper or a snack. Activities will be located at the baseball concession stand. The early events aim to get everyone excited about the Spooky Trail to follow from 7:30-10:30 p.m. each night. McGahen assembled more than 100 volunteers who transformed the campground area and will wear makeup and costumes to entertain trail-goers. Visitors to the Spooky Trail must park and pay $5 per person at the recreation complex. The road around the lake will be closed to traffic, and no vehicles will be allowed through the gate between SEE SPOOKY, PAGE A8

Healthcare site needed more advance testing WASHINGTON (AP) — On the defensive, the Obama administration acknowledged Wednesday its problem-plagued health insurance website didn’t get enough testing before going live. It said technicians were deep into the job of fixing major computer snags but provided no timetable. Democratic unhappiness with the situation began growing louder — including one call for President Barack Obama to “man up” and fire someone — as the president’s allies began to fret about the

political fallout. Democrats had hoped to run for re-election touting the benefits of the health care law for millions of uninsured Americans, but the computer problems are keeping many people from signing up. And Republican sniping continued unabated, with House Speaker John Boehner declaring, “We’ve got the whole threat of Obamacare continuing to hang over our economy like a wet blanket.” Obama himself, though strongly

defending the health care overhaul, has been increasingly willing to acknowledge extensive problems with the sign-up through online markets. Amid all that, the Health and Human Services Department on Wednesday provided its most specific accounting yet of the troubles with — an issue that is also about to get a lengthy, even-less-forgiving airing on Capitol Hill. The first of several hearings is set for Thursday in the Republican-led House, with lawmakers

ready to pounce on the contractors who built the balky online enrollment system. Acknowledging what’s been obvious to many outside experts, the administration said Wednesday that the system didn’t get enough testing, especially at a high user volume. It blamed a compressed time frame for meeting the Oct. 1 deadline to open the insurance markets. Basic “alpha and user testing” are now completed, but that’s supposed to happen before a SEE HEALTHCARE, PAGE A8

Prairie Heights staging comedy BY JENNIFER DECKER

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — An alien invasion, seven houses, hazmat suits and a quarantine. No, Prairie Heights High School isn’t under a state of emergency. It’s all part of the theater students’ upcoming production of the play, “A Delightful Quarantine.” Corrine Reed, the play’s director and Prairie Heights drama adviser, said the comedy production provides many opportunities for students to take to the stage — seven for the first time at Prairie Heights. She said the drama department lost several

seniors to graduation last year. Because of that, Reed said, she had a hard time choosing which play her students would present. She chose “A Delightful Quarantine” and noted the title is “quirky.” “In an alien invasion. They quarantine everyone inside, so they don’t get sick from aliens,” Reed said. “It’s a comedy, though it has its serious point that is to look at relationships and the importance of family and friends.” Reed said the ensemble has no lead character. “We have some interesting happenings in these houses during

quarantine,” Reed said. “The framework that holds it together is in the astrobiology class of Professor Lucy Fuller. She’s lecturing about the events of an alien invasion.” The PG-rated play was written by Mark Dunn and is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc. Show times are this Friday, Friday, Nov. 1 and Saturday, Nov. 2. Students will take to the stage at 7 p.m. all three nights. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets cost $7 each. For more details, call 351-2989 or contact any cast or crew member.

The Noble County Sheriff’s Department is looking for two four-wheelers that were stolen sometime in the overnight hours between Oct. 13 and Oct. 14 near the intersection of Allen Chapel Road and Lisbon Road.

LAGRANGE — A plan to extend a LaGrange County water line down the east side of S.R. 9, as part of an agreement to bring a major new employer to the Howe area, has hit a bit of a snag. The LaGrange County commissioners stepped in Monday morning to allow their engineering firm to seek a new easement for the water pipe. The commissioners were told the state “strongly suggested” the county reconsider a plan to use the existing easement along the east side of the road. They said “if and when” the state ever decides to widen the road, those water lines, as well the other utilities in that easement, would have to be moved, and at the county’s expense. Commissioner Jac Price called the news a mixed bag, saying the state never has discussed any plan to widen the road with the county. But he suggested the smartest move would

Water line to new industry might switch sides of road BY PATRICK REDMOND

LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department deputies and members of the LaGrange Police Department responded to an emergency call about a fight.

The issue required the commissioners to approve additional services from its Fort Wayne engineering firm, allowing it to begin drawing up a new easement plan. The move will cost the county up to an additional $11,700. In other matters, the commissioners signed an interlocal agreement and a resolution allowing the Steuben County Community Corrections department to begin operating and administrating a home detention program in LaGrange County. It will be similar to a program it operates in Steuben County. The program would give local judges more latitude in sentencing LaGrange County offenders, said Terry Martin, the LaGrange County Sheriff. Kurt Bachman, LaGrange County attorney, said he hoped this would be the beginning of “a great partnership between two counties.” The commissioners also gave their approval for Bachman to review a proposal with an Iowa company that is being considered for rebuilding the exterior of the LaGrange County Courthouse. The firm would replace the building’s damaged and decaying bricks, as well as restoring mortar between the stones and bricks on the more than 130-year-old building. The restoration would cost the county more than $120,000.

Prince George christened with River Jordan water LONDON (AP) — Dressed in a lace and satin gown designed in the 1840s, Britain’s 3-month-old future monarch, Prince George, was christened Wednesday with water from the River Jordan at a rare gathering of four generations of the royal family. The occasion had historic overtones: the presence of Britain’s 87-year-old monarch and three future kings, Princes Charles, William and, of course, little George. Queen Elizabeth II, usually the center of attention, quietly ceded the spotlight to her rosy-cheeked great-grandson, who seemed to wave at her when he arrived — an illusion created by his father, Prince William, playfully moving the infant’s arm. The private affair at the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace was also attended by Prince Charles, next in line to the throne, and the queen’s 92-year-old husband, Prince Philip, who has shown remarkable stamina since returning to the public eye after a

two-month convalescence following serious abdominal surgery. All told, it was an exceptional day for a monarchy that seems to be basking in public affection since the 2011 wedding of William and Kate Middleton and the maturing of Prince Harry, who appears to have put his playboy days behind him. George, who was born on July 22, wore a replica of an intricate christening gown made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter and first used in 1841. When William was christened in 1982, he wore the original gown — by then well over a century old — but the garment has become so fragile that a replica was made. The infant, who will head the Church of England when he becomes king, was christened with water from the River Jordan by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. He arrived at the chapel in his father’s arms with his mother by their side. Kate, smiling broadly on her way into the chapel,

People • Underwood to star in ‘Sound of Music’ NEW YORK (AP) — The end of the year looks busy for Carrie Underwood, and she couldn’t be happier. The six-time Grammy-winning singer will host the Country Music Association Awards for the sixth time. You can see her singing the Underwood opening on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.” And for one night in December, she’ll star in a live television version of “The Sound of Music.” The 30-year-old star told the Associated Press on the red carpet Tuesday night at the TJ Martell Foundation gala, where she was one of the night’s

honorees, that she nervous doing something she’s never done before. But then she realized, “None of us have. This is a live show on TV. So this is definitely a challenge for all of us.” “The Sound of Music” airs Dec. 5 on NBC with Underwood playing Maria alongside “True Blood” vampire Stephen Moyer. He portrays Captain von Trapp. Broadway veterans — and Tony winners — Audra McDonald, Laura Benanti and Christian Borle round out the cast as Mother Abbess, Elsa and Max. While the Nashville, Tenn.-based Underwood is no stranger to performing before millions of people on live television — she won the fourth season of “American Idol” — she felt she needed more preparation, so she showed up in New York three weeks early.

wore a cream-colored Alexander McQueen dress and hat by milliner Jane Taylor, with her long hair brushed to the side. William wore his customary dark suit and tie as he proudly carried their first child. Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, and her sister, Pippa, and brother, James, were also at the ceremony. Pippa Middleton read from the Gospel of St. Luke and Prince Harry read from the Gospel of St. John. The two hymns were “Breathe on Me, Breath of God” and “Be Thou My Vision.” Baby George has seven godparents, among them William’s cousin, Zara Phillips, daughter of Princess Anne and a close friend of the couple. Palace officials said water from the River Jordan — where Christians believe Jesus Christ was baptized — was used for the christening. In the West Bank, hours before the christening, busloads of Russian tourists descended on Qasr el-Yahud to immerse themselves in the river. The site, five

The Bonds maturing on July 15, 2022, and thereafter, are subject to optional redemption on January 15, 2022, or any date thereafter, on thirty (30) days' notice, in whole or in part, in such order of maturity as the Library shall direct and by lot within a maturity, at face value, plus accrued interest to the date fixed for redemption. Each bid must be for all of the Bonds and must state the rate of interest which each maturity of the Bonds is to bear, stated in multiples of 1/8th or 1/20th or 1/100th of 1%. The maximum interest rate of the Bonds shall not exceed 6.00% per annum. All Bonds maturing on the same date shall bear the same rate, and the rate of interest bid for each maturity must be equal to or greater than the rate bid on the immediately preceding maturity. Bids shall set out the total amount of interest payable over the term of the Bonds and the net interest cost on the Bonds covered by the bid. No bid for less than 99.0% of the face value of the Bonds will be considered. The Bonds will be awarded to the highest qualified bidder who has submitted a bid in accordance herewith. The highest bidder will be the one who offers the lowest net interest cost to the Library, to be determined by computing the total interest on all of the Bonds to their maturities based upon the schedules provided by the Library prior to the sale and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any, and adding thereto the discount bid, if any. No conditional bids will be considered. The right is reserved to reject any and all bids. If an acceptable bid is not received for the Bonds on the date of sale hereinbefore fixed, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter, during which time no bids for less than the highest bid received at the time of the advertised sale will be considered.

Each bid must be submitted on a customary bid form, addressed to the Library, and marked "Bid for Ligonier Public Library General Obligation Bonds of 2013". The successful bidder (the "Purchaser") will be notified and instructed to submit a good faith deposit ("Deposit") in the form of cash, certified or cashier's check or wire transfer in the amount of one percent of the aggregate principal amount of the Bonds. If a check is submitted, it shall be drawn on a bank or trust company which is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and shall be submitted to the Library (or wire transfer such amount as instructed by the Library) by the Purchaser not later than 3:30 p.m. (EST) on the next business day following the award. If such Deposit is not received by that time, the Library may reject the bid. No interest on the Deposit will accrue to the Purchaser. The Deposit will be applied to the purchase price of the Bonds. In the event the Purchaser fails to honor its accepted bid, the Deposit will be retained by the Library as liquidated damages. The Purchaser shall make payment for the Bonds in Federal Reserve funds to the registrar (the "Registrar") for the Bonds and accept delivery thereof from the Registrar within five (5) days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery. It is anticipated that the Bonds will be ready for delivery within thirty (30) days after the date of sale. If the Library fails to have the Bonds ready for delivery prior to the close of banking hours on the forty fifth (45th) day after the date of sale, the bidder may secure the release of his bid upon request in writing, filed with the Library. The Purchaser is expected to apply to a securities depository registered with the SEC to make such Bonds depository eligible. At the time of delivery of the Bonds to the Purchaser, the Purchaser will be required to certify to the Library the initial reoffering price to the public of a substantial amount of each maturity of the Bonds. The Bonds may be initially issued by way of a Book Entry Only system with no physical distribution of bond certificates made to the public. In this case, one bond certificate in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee of The Depository Trust Company, New York, New York (“DTC”), and immobilized in its custody. The Purchaser, as a condition of delivery of the Bonds, may be required to deposit the bond certificates with DTC, registered in the name of Cede & Co., nominee of DTC. It is anticipated that CUSIP identification numbers will be printed on the Bonds, but neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bond nor any error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for failure or refusal by the Purchaser therefore to accept delivery of and pay for the Bonds in accordance with the terms of its bid. No CUSIP identification number shall be

deemed to be a part of any Bond or a part of the contract evidenced thereby and no liability shall hereafter attach to the Library or any of its officers or agents because of or on account of such numbers. All expenses in relation to the printing of CUSIP identification numbers on the Bonds shall be paid for by the Library; provided, however, that the CUSIP Service Bureau charge for the assignment of said numbers shall be the responsibility of and shall be paid for by the Purchaser. The Purchaser will also be responsible for any other fees or expenses it incurs in connection with the resale of the Bonds. The approving opinion of Beers Mallers Backs & Salin, LLP, bond counsel of LaGrange, Indiana, together with a transcript of the proceedings relating to the issuance of the Bonds and closing papers in the usual form showing no litigation questioning the validity of the Bonds, will be furnished to the Purchaser at the expense of the Library. The Bonds are being issued under the provisions of I.C. §36 12-3-9. The Bonds are being issued for the purpose of procuring funds to be used to finance the acquisition, construction, extension, alteration, improvement, remodeling, and equipping of an addition to and renovation of the Library and the related incidental expenses to be incurred in connection therewith and on account of the issuance of the Bonds. The Bonds will be direct obligations of the Library payable out of ad valorem taxes to be collected on the taxable property within the district of the Library; however, the Library's collection of the levy may be limited by operation of I.C. §6-1.1-20.6, which provides taxpayers with tax credits for property taxes attributable to different classes of property in an amount that exceeds certain percentages of gross assessed value of that property. The Library is required by law to fully fund the payment of debt service on the Bonds in an amount sufficient to pay the debt service, regardless of any reduction in property tax collections due to the application of such tax credits. The Library may not be able to levy or collect additional property taxes to make up this short fall. In the opinion of bond counsel, under the federal statutes, decisions, regulations and rulings existing on this date, the interest on the Bonds is excludable from gross income for purposes of federal income taxation. The Bonds constitute an indebtedness only of the Library. The Bonds are subject to the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 as in effect on the date of their issuance (“Code”) which imposes limitations on the issuance of obligations like the Bonds under federal tax law. The Library has covenanted to comply with those limitations to the extent required to preserve the exclusion of interest on the Bonds from gross income for federal

income tax purposes. The Library has designated the Bonds for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Code to qualify for the $10,000,000 annual exception from 100% disallowance, in the case of banks and other financial institutions, of the deduction for interest expense allocable to tax-exempt obligations. The Library has authorized the preparation of an Official Statement relating to the Bonds which will be in a form deemed to be a nearly final official statement. A copy of the Official Statement may be obtained from Jerry Nesbitt, Director at Ligonier Public Library, 300 S. Main St., Ligonier, IN 46767, (260) 894-4511 or in limited quantities prior to submission of a bid by request from the Library's financial advisor. Within seven (7) business days of the sale, the Library will provide the Purchaser with up to fifteen (15) copies of the final Official Statement at the Library's expense. Additional copies, at the Purchaser's expense, must be requested within five (5) business days of the sale. Inquiries concerning matters contained in the nearly final Official Statement must be made and pricing and other information necessary to complete the final Official Statement must be submitted by the Purchaser within two (2) business days following the sale to be included in the final Official Statement. The Library has agreed to enter into a Continuing Disclosure Undertaking in order to permit the successful purchaser to comply with the SEC Rule 15(c)2 12. A description of this undertaking is set forth in the near final Official Statement and will also be set forth in the final Official Statement. The Continuing Disclosure Undertaking will be executed and delivered by the Library at the closing of the issuance of the Bonds. Further information relative to said issue and a copy of the nearly final Official Statement may be obtained upon application to H.J. Umbaugh & Associates, Certified Public Accountants, LLP, 8365 Keystone Crossing, Suite 300, Indianapolis, Indiana 46240, financial advisor to the Library. Dated this 8th day of October, 2013. /S/Jerry Nesbitt Director of Ligonier Public Library NS,00356066,10/17,24,hspaxlp

After many moves Jim’s family finally settled in Elkhart, where Jim graduated from Elkhart High School in 1951.

He raised his family in South Bend and worked many different jobs in the South Bend/Elkhart area. He retired from Miles Laboratory.

Jim ran 30 full marathons over the years and dozens of 10Ks. He was an original member of the Indiana Striders running club in the ’70s back before it was a popular sport. He never stopped telling jokes. He had one for every occasion! He relished his role as a grandpa, doting on his grandkids. They all knew they were loved by their Grandpa Jim.

Boston Marathon suspect may blame brother BOSTON (AP) — Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers may try to save him from the death penalty in the Boston Marathon bombing by arguing he fell under the murderous influence of his older brother, legal experts say. The outlines of a possible defense came into focus this week when it was learned that Tsarnaev’s attorneys are trying to get access to investigative records implicating the now-dead brother in a grisly triple slaying committed in 2011. In court papers Monday, federal prosecutors acknowledged publicly for the first time that a friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev told investigators that Tamerlan participated in the unsolved killings of three men who were found in a Waltham apartment with their throats slit, marijuana sprinkled over their bodies. The younger Tsarnaev’s lawyers argued in court papers that any evidence of Tamerlan’s involvement is “mitigating information” that is critical as they prepare Dzhokhar’s defense. They asked a judge to force prosecutors to turn over the records. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 20, faces 30 federal charges, including using a weapon of mass destruction, in the twin bombings April 15 that killed three people and injured more than 260. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died in a gunbattle with police days later.

Obama, Pakistani prime minister meet amid easing tensions WASHINGTON (AP) — In the rocky relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan, the mere fact that President Barack Obama and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif are sitting down together at the White House is seen as a sign of progress. Few breakthroughs were expected on the numerous hot-button issues on their agenda Wednesday, including American drone strikes and Pakistan’s alleged support for the Taliban. But officials in both countries are hoping to scale back tensions that escalated after the 2011 U.S. strike within Pakistan

that killed Osama bin Laden and last year’s accidental killing of two dozen Pakistani troops in an American airstrike along the Afghan border. “We want to find ways for our countries to cooperate, even as we have differences on some issues, and we want to make sure that the trajectory of this relationship is a positive one,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Sharif was welcomed to the White House Wednesday afternoon by a military honor guard lining the driveway leading to the West Wing. Vice President Joe Biden also held a breakfast

meeting with Sharif and first lady Michelle Obama hosted a tea and poetry recital for the prime minister’s wife. Obama and Sharif talked on the phone earlier this year, but they have never met in person. Sharif, who served two earlier stints as Pakistan’s prime minister, has held face-to-face talks with Secretary of State John Kerry and was scheduled to meet with other top U.S. officials while in Washington this week. The prime minister’s visit to the White House comes one day after Amnesty International released a report providing new details about the

alleged victims of U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan, one of them a 68-yearold grandmother hit while farming with her grandchildren. In Pakistan, there is widespread belief that American drone strikes kill large numbers of civilians and Sharif is expected to raise the issue with Obama. The White House responded to the Amnesty report by defending the drone program, with Carney saying U.S. counterterrorism operations “are precise, they are lawful and they are effective.” Also on the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting will be Obama’s looming

decision on whether to keep any American troops in Afghanistan after the war there formally concludes at the end of next year. Ahead of the U.S. withdrawal, the U.S. is seeking to push through a peace deal with the Taliban and Afghan government. Pakistan is seen as key to this process because of its historical connection to the Taliban. It helped the group grab power in Afghanistan in 1996 and is widely believed to have maintained ties as a hedge against neighbor and nuclear rival India — an allegation denied by Islamabad.

the U.S., Sharif said he planned to ask Obama for American intervention in resolving the dispute between Pakistan and India in Kashmir. On Wednesday, India accused Pakistani troops of firing guns and mortars on at least 50 Indian border posts overnight in Kashmir. Indian troops returned fire, but one Indian guard was killed and six were injured by a shell fired at the Arnia post in the Jammu region, he said. Indian Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid rejected the idea of U.S. involvement, saying Kashmir was a “bilateral issue between India and Pakistan.”

Make a difference: Help save the Strand Area residents can celebrate Halloween in costume in downtown Kendallville Saturday and help ensure the survival of a Main Street landmark that has been in operation since 1890. Show times at the Strand Theatre “Hotel Transylvania” are 2 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. for “Percy Jackson and the Sea Monsters.” Admission for “Hotel Transylvania” is free; admission is $1 for “Percy Jackson and the Sea Monsters.” Doors open an hour before each movie, and people are urged to come early. People who dress as their favorite actor or movie character can purchase small popcorn and a small drink for $1 each. Milk Duds will be given for a donation of $5 or more. The twin cinema at 221 S. Main St. is one of the oldest theaters in the U.S. in continuous operation showing first-run movies and Noble County’s only movie theater. Nationwide, Saturday is Make A Difference Day. The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council is assisting with the effort to save the Strand. “I highly suggest getting there early!” MYAC coordinator Kristen Johnson said. “And we are hoping that people will bring generous donations to help save this local treasure!” A movie theater is an anchor that most downtowns have lost. The “Strand Theatre: Keep the Lights On” campaign will help ensure that the Strand has the technology to keep operating. By the end of this year, all movies will be digitized and distributed on hard drives. The required new digital projection technology is expensive. About 88 percent of the 5,570 theaters in North America have made the digital switch, according to the National Association of Theater Owners. Independent theaters such as the Strand make up most of the 12 percent that have not converted. The digital medium also facilitates 3D projection, which sells tickets. The Strand cannot show 3D movies. Strand Theatre owner Bruce Babbitt has said he cannot afford the estimated $110,000 to $120,000 needed to convert to the new digital technology. Therefore, “The Strand Theatre: Keep the Lights On” campaign is raising money to purchase the required digital equipment. Diane Peachey, Mike Gordon, Zach Hayden and Tom Hullinger are working with the Kendallville Redevelopment Commission, which would own all the equipment purchased and lease it to the Strand. In an Oct. 2 letter to the Noble County Community Foundation, Redevelopment Commission chairman Ray Scott and Kendallville Mayor Suzanne Handshoe explained the commission’s grant to purchase the equipment will relieve the use of tax dollars for the project by establishing a non-permanent fund with the foundation. The campaign committee is seeking to raise $110,000 to $120,000 to purchase the digital projectors, sound systems and screens. Another “Keep the Lights On” fundraiser will be a 5K fun run/walk at Bixler Lake on Saturday, Nov. 23. Watch this newspaper for details. We applaud the citizens who have stepped forward to help preserve one of the focal points of Kendallville’s historic Main Street and we encourage people to support these efforts. Like Kendallville’s 150th celebration events, save the Strand activities can bring people together in fun and meaningful ways — combining nostalgia and preservation of our past with movement toward a brighter future.

When I attended North Side Elementary we often play-acted battle scenes on the playground from movies we had seen at the Strand. When I was 8 or 9 years old my friend Scott Showen and I toured the theater’s projection booth. His father was the projectionist. In the 1950s movie theaters had huge reel-to-reel projectors showing 70 mm films on the big screen. We all have fond memories of the Strand Theatre like sneaking in friends through the alley exit door, rolling candy Dots down the aisles, finding sticky gum under the seats, booing the bad guys and cheering the good guys, using straws to shoot spit wads, tossing popcorn and especially looking out for manager Cleon Point. He was a mean one, and would pull out anyone misbehaving for a tongue lashing or banishment. The Strand Theatre is facing an uncertain future.

What Others Say • Iran’s clever gambit The high-profile Iranian nuclear peace offensive launched with fanfare by newly elected President Hassan Rouhani at the United Nations last month has disturbed long-standing U.S. allies in the Middle East such as Saudi Arabia and Israel. They are right to be worried. So far, Iran continues to insist on its right to enrich uranium. Moreover, it refuses to close an enrichment facility under control of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. If talks are to advance, the United States and its co-negotiators from the European Union, Russia and China will have to make concessions leaving Iran with the capability to

make nuclear weapons even if its immediate ambitions are blunted. It makes you wonder why some Western diplomats were expressing “cautious optimism” following last week’s closed meeting in Geneva. Since 2006 the United Nations has demanded that Iran stop enriching uranium, a process that produces material for nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, Iran has built up a large-scale uranium-enrichment industry. It has manufactured a large amount of low-enriched uranium suitable to fuel a power-generating nuclear reactor, and has started accumulating medium-enriched fuel for a research reactor that makes medical isotopes used to fight cancer.

And it can make high-enriched uranium used in nuclear weapons if it so chooses. Up until now Washington and its allies, negotiating for the U.N., have demanded that Iran give up weapons-grade uranium as a first step toward lifting sanctions. … Iran has timed its push to get sanctions lifted with a shrewd eye on President Obama’s need for a foreign policy “success.” No wonder the Saudis are reported to view the administration as having gone soft. No wonder that the Israeli cabinet issued a statement before the Geneva meeting warning about the dangers of a premature end to sanctions if it allows Iran to continue taking steps leading to nuclear weapons.

Wood ducks fill opening day bags Gray skies, brisk temperatures and intermittent rain greeted hunters who went afield on last weekend’s opening day of the duck season. It proved to be nearly ideal weather, causing JAMES H. ducks to fly low over marsh, PHILLIPS slough and river bottom. Weather is always a primary topic among waterfowl hunters. They believe it can dictate success. This is true each day a hunter goes afield as well over the course of the long season. The first week of this year’s season finds hunters discussing the weather more than is usually the case. Two days before our local opener I called a friend in North Dakota. He reported seeing lots of ducks and lots of water to hold them. He especially noted unprecedented large numbers blue-wing teal, traditionally the first of the “northern” ducks to migrate southward. Not only were there an abnormally high number of blue-wings lingering on the northern prairies, he said, but a lot of adult drake blue-wings which fly to the wintering grounds ahead of the adult hens and juveniles. He attributed this to a

late spring which delayed nesting. “It’s shaping up to be a late migration,” he said. Of course, our opening day traditionally focuses on locally raised wood ducks and mallards, plus a scattering of teal, both blue-wings and green-wings. The hunters I talked to reported seeing an abundance of woodies, suggesting the wet spring and summer produced a bountiful hatch. For some reason, mallards were less abundant than normal. What is problematic is the cold front that moved in a few days ago, sending the overnight mercury plummeting into the 30s. Wood ducks are lovers of warm weather. Did the cold-front cause large numbers of them to take wing and head for warmer climes? Hunters who go afield this weekend will find out. Mallards, of course, will brave the cold and snow as long as food and open water is available. But there are fewer of them than normal, according to reports I received. If many of our woodies have departed because of the cold snap, waterfowlers could stare at nearly empty skies for a few weeks until the delayed northern ducks start heading southward. This is not a pleasant prospect. Biologists tell us not all ducks migrate according to the weather. Some


Duck hunters return after a successful opening-day hunt. Field reports indicate bountiful numbers of wood

species, especially diving ducks such as canvasbacks and bluebills are calendar or “phototropic” migrants. They take their autumn migration cues by the decreasing length of daylight. Their arrival and departure is fairly predictable. When I gunned the

Chesapeake Bay, tundra swans and canvasbacks arrived each autumn around Nov. 10. This was true no matter what the weather. Veteran waterfowlers, of course, know ducks can always be found in our area — if you know where to go. The key is to spend

ducks, but fewer mallards than normal.

time scouting for concentrations. The ducks are here and can provide good shooting, even in seasons when many less skilled hunters lament a dearth of ducks. To be sure, the weather will play a major role in determining hunter success as the season progresses.

But the adaptable hunter can offset the weather’s unpredictable influences, and make each season a bountiful one. It’s up to you. JAMES H. PHILLIPS is a columnist for this newspaper. He can be reached at jahoph@

revenue from the Federal Insurance Contribution Act tax (FICA) of $18,950 and the Teachers Retirement Fund contribution of $20,473 gives a total payout of $287,137.95. The school corporation has to pay the $1.95 difference between the total payout and the grant, according to Leitch. Pay raises totaled $161,597, and bonuses or stipends totaled $86,116. Linson pointed out the total pay increases are only about $6,000 less than the school district would have paid for total increment pay increases. She also pointed out that under the old system, teachers would

have received a negotiated percentage pay increase and the increment increase. The pay raise this time is only about the same for the increment raise. “Teachers are still behind,” Linson said. Teachers will receive their pay raises in one check before Dec. 31. For the 2013-2014 school year, the school district expects new money from the state. The performance grant is only for 2012-2013 school year. “Hopefully, in the future we can provide teachers with pay raise information earlier and stretch it out over the school year,” Linson said.

GERMAN: Chancellor says such actions break trust FROM PAGE A1

its research triggered the response. Merkel spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a statement the chancellor made clear to Obama in a phone call that “she views such practices, if the indications are confirmed … as completely unacceptable.” Merkel said among close partners such as Germany and the U.S., “there must not be such surveillance of a head of government’s communication,” Seibert added. “That would be a serious breach of trust. Such practices must be stopped immediately.” Carney, the White House spokesman, said the U.S.

is examining Germany’s concerns as part of an ongoing review of how the U.S. gathers intelligence. The White House has cited that review in responding to similar spying concerns from France, Brazil and other countries. U.S. allies knew that the Americans were spying on them, but they had no idea how much. As details of National Security Agency spying programs have become public, citizens, activists and politicians in countries from Latin America to Europe have lined up to express shock and outrage at the scope of Washington’s spying.

Merkel had previously raised concerns over the electronic eavesdropping issue when Obama visited Germany in June, has demanded answers from the U.S. government and backed calls for greater European data protection. Wednesday’s statement, however, was much more sharply worded and appeared to reflect frustration over the answers provided so far by the U.S. government. Merkel called for U.S. authorities to clarify the extent of surveillance in Germany and to provide answers to “questions that the German government asked months ago,” Seibert said.

Boy, 14, accused of killing teacher DANVERS, Mass. (AP) — A 14-year-old high school student described by classmates as soft-spoken and pleasant was accused of killing a well-liked math teacher, whose body was found in the woods behind the school. Law enforcement officials recovered the remains of 24-year-old Danvers High School teacher Colleen Ritzer early Wednesday, Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said. The teen, Philip Chism, was arraigned Wednesday in Salem on a murder charge and ordered held without bail. Ritzer was reported missing late Tuesday night after she didn’t come home from work or answer her cellphone. Investigators found blood in a second-floor school bathroom and soon located her body, Blodgett said. He did not say how Ritzer died. “She was a very, very respected, loved teacher,” Blodgett said, calling the killing a “terrible tragedy.” The boy also was reported missing Tuesday after not coming home from school. He was spotted walking along a road in neighboring Topsfield at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. Investigators said in court documents that the arrest was made based on statements by the suspect and corroborating evidence at multiple scenes. They said they also recovered video surveillance. At his arraignment in

adult court Wednesday afternoon, Chism’s defense attorney argued for the proceeding to be closed and her client to be allowed to stay hidden because of his age. The judge denied the request. The attorney declined to comment outside court. Ritzer had a Twitter account where she gave homework assignments, encouraged students and described herself as a “math teacher often too excited about the topics I’m teaching.” She was a 2011 graduate of Assumption College in Worcester, a school spokeswoman said Wednesday. She graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree in math, a minor in psychology and a secondary education concentration, according to the college’s 2011 commencement program. Chris Weimert, 17, was a student in Ritzer’s geometry class last year. He said she had taught at the school for two years and was a warm, welcoming person who would stand outside her classroom and say hello to students she didn’t teach. “She was the nicest teacher anyone could ever have. She always had a warm smile on her face,” he said. Weimert said the suspect, who he knew from seeing him around school, “seemed like a good kid.” He said, “It really threw the whole town of Danvers a curve ball.”

launch, not after. The Health and Human Services explanation identified some bugs that have gotten little outside attention. For example, technical problems have surfaced that are making it hard for people to complete the application and plan-shopping functions. That’s a big concern because those stages are further along in the signup process than the initial registration, where many consumers have been getting tripped up. The problems are being analyzed and fixes are planned, the department said. The explanation, posted online in a department blog and accompanying graphic, identified other broad areas of problems and outlined fixes underway but in most cases incomplete: — Unexpectedly high consumer interest that overwhelmed the system in its initial days. Equipment has been added to handle the load and system design has been improved. More fixes are in progress. — Lack of a way for consumers to browse their health plan options without first having to set up a user account. A partial fix is in place. — Incorrect or duplicate information in enrollments is being delivered to insurance companies. Some software fixes that should help address the issue have been completed, others are underway. — Difficulties for consumers trying to create user accounts, including drop-down menus that didn’t work. Design changes and software fixes should address the situation. The new markets are supposed to be the portal to coverage for people who don’t get health insurance on the job. Middle-class people are to pick from subsidized private insurance plans, while low-income people are steered to Medicaid in states that agreed to expand that safety-net program. The federal government is running the online markets in 36 states, and its website has had more than its share of problems. As a result, even Obama has urged consumers to revert to low-tech approaches, by applying through the mail, telephoning federal call centers, or seeking in-person assistance. On Thursday, the House Energy and Commerce Committee will line up contractors, including

Red Sox rout Cards in opener BOSTON (AP) -- Given a bit of help by the umpires and a lot more by the Cardinals, the Boston Red Sox turned this World Series opener into a laugher. Mike Napoli hit a three-run double right after the umps reversed a blown call, Jon Lester made an early lead stand up and the Red Sox romped past sloppy St. Louis 8-1 Wednesday night for their ninth straight Series win. David Ortiz was robbed of a grand slam by Carlos Beltran -- a catch that sent the star right fielder to a hospital with bruised ribs -- but Big Papi later hit a two-run homer following third baseman David Freese’s bad throw. The Red Sox also capitalized on two errors by shortstop Pete Kozma to extend a Series winning streak that began when they swept St. Louis in 2004. Boston never trailed at any point

in those four games and, thanks to this embarrassing display by the Cardinals, coasted on a rollicking night at Fenway Park. It got so bad for St. Louis that the sellout crowd literally laughed when pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina, who’ve combined to win six Gold Gloves, let an easy popup drop untouched between them. Serious-minded St. Louis manager Mike Matheny didn’t find anything funny, especially when the umpires huddled in the first inning and flipped a call by Dana DeMuth at second base. The six-man crew correctly ruled that Kozma had not caught a soft toss from second baseman Matt Carpenter on a slow grounder by Ortiz. A season before Major League Baseball employs full replay, fans got to see a wrong get righted.

“There’s five of us out here, OK? And all five of us agreed 100 percent that it wasn’t a catch. Our job is to get it right,” crew chief John Hirschbeck told Matheny on audio played on the Fox telecast. The normally slick-fielding Cardinals looked sloppy at every turn. Wainwright bounced a pickoff throw, Molina let a pitch skitter off his mitt, center fielder Shane Robinson bobbled the carom on Napoli’s double and there was a wild pitch. The Cardinal Way? More like no way. Game 2 is Thursday night, with 22-year-old rookie sensation Michael Wacha starting for St. Louis against John Lackey. Wacha is 3-0 with an 0.43 ERA this postseason. Lester blanked the Cardinals on five hits over 7 2-3 innings for

his third win this postseason. Ryan Dempster gave up Matt Holliday’s leadoff home run in the ninth. The umpires made a mistake, too, but at least they got to fix it in a hurry. After the control-conscious Wainwright walked leadoff man Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia singled him to second with one out. Ortiz then hit a slow grounder to Carpenter, and it didn’t appear the Cardinals could turn a double play. Hurrying, Kozma let the backhanded flip glance off his glove. DeMuth instantly called Pedroia out, indicating that Kozma dropped the ball while trying to transfer it to his throwing hand. Boston manager John Farrell quickly popped out of the dugout to argue while Pedroia went to the bench.

Arnold, Nofziger aim for state title


leads the team with 325 kills (3.8/ set) and also had 46 blocks. Martin was recently named first-team all-Northeast Hoosier Conference. “It means a lot because I didn’t play my sophomore year,” Martin said. “And it took a lot to come back and work my butt off. And I worked really hard and ended up getting this award. “I had a lot more motivation to play. I missed it a lot. It means a lot to know that they depend on me and can rely on me to be that player that will put it away and score for us.” But Martin is far from Dekalb’s only option. Sophomore Hannah Lewis has 248 kills on the year (3.2/set) and junior Maddy Fifer has 98 kills and 124 digs (1.5/ set). Running the offense from the setter position is junior Hunter Daub, who’s got 716 assists

ANGOLA — Angola’s No. 1 doubles team of Markus Arnold and Craig Nofziger went from being pretty good to being one of the best duos in the state in about a year’s time. It shows what added Arnold cohesiveness and hard work can do along with a better understanding of how the elite operate. Arnold and Nofziger saw the doubles state finals for boys tennis the last two seasons while seeing teammates Jake Stump and Georg Albrecht play in the singles finals. Arnold and Nofziger Nofziger will actually be playing in the Indiana High School Athletic Association Doubles State Finals Friday afternoon at Park Tudor School in Indianapolis. The senior Arnold and junior Nofziger are 26-1 and will play Greensburg seniors Kyle Colson and Tom Lawrence (20-5) in a quarterfinal match at 2 p.m. Both teams are 6-0 in state tournament play. The winner of that match will play the undefeated team of senior

Barons like underdog role BY PHIL FRIEND

WATERLOO — The DeKalb volleyball team enters tonight’s Class 4A Sectional 5 quarterfinal at Fort Wayne North with a sparkling 18-9 record. But the Barons’ second-year coach, Andrea Spiess, doesn’t want her team to view itself as a potential favorite in the sectional. She prefers the underdog role. “You have less pressure everywhere else,” Spiess said. “We put pressure on ourselves to go beyond expectations as far as what other people have. With that underdog role, we have nothing to lose and that’s the approach we’re taking. We think we’re capable of being sectional champions.” The Barons face a tough test right off the bat with the host Redskins. It was a close match the first time around, with DeKalb pulling out a victory in five games.

The Barons had nine days off between the regular season finale and tonight’s sectional match. In that time, Spiess has talked to the squad about staying in the right mind mentally. “Some people take the philosophy of focusing on the other team but we focus on ourselves and that’s what we need to do to be ready to play,” Spiess said. “We talk about ball speed, fast transition and not getting caught against the faster offenses that we see in our sectionals. We’re just as capable of attacking and forcing them out of their own system.” If the Barons win tonight, they’ll play the Northrop-Snider winner at 11 a.m. Saturday. East Noble and Carroll play each other in the other semifinal. If DeKalb is to advance in the tournament, a lot will depend on the play of senior Hayley Martin. The senior outside/middle hitter

Manning misses practice with ankle injury ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Peyton Manning doesn’t like to skip any snaps, so you can imagine how unhappy he was Wednesday when a tender ankle forced him to miss practice for the first time since joining the Denver Broncos last year. “It was Greek’s call,” Manning said of head athletic trainer Steve Antonopulos. “I can assure I didn’t go down without a fight. But hopefully I’ll use the day to get a little better, feel a little better.” Manning said he plans to return to practice Thursday when the banged-up Broncos (6-1) continue preparations for Mike Shanahan’s return to Denver with the Washington Redskins (2-4). Manning was knocked around by his former team in his homecoming on Sunday night. His mix-and-match offensive line allowed him to get hit 10 times, including four sacks, two by Robert Mathis, in a 39-33 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Coach John Fox declined to identify which ankle was bothering his star quarterback, and

Manning deflected questions about it, too. Showing his sense of humor was still intact even if he’s not up on current events, Manning cracked: “I know government is shut down right now but I still very firmly believe in HIPPA,” the federal medical privacy law. “So, I will refer all questions to the injury report.” That report, of course, didn’t specify which ankle was hurt, nor the severity of the injury, although Fox did allow this bit of detail: “It’s nothing serious, just sore.” Manning was one of seven starters who sat out Wednesday’s workout, joining right tackle Orlando Franklin (ankle), right guard Chris Kuper (ankle) and wide receivers Eric Decker (toe) and Wes Welker (ankle) on offense along with cornerback Champ Bailey (foot) and defensive end Shaun Phillips (hamstring). Manning was never knocked from the game Sunday night, although his passes were wobbly after a big sack/strip by Mathis that resulted in a safety that gave

the Colts early momentum. “It’s a physical game out there and I don’t know who, in their 16th year, ever feels 100 percent

HORNETS: Angola duo credit offseason work on USTA circuit for postseason success FROM PAGE B1

William Reifeis and junior Patrick McAuley from Indianapolis North Central in a semifinal match Saturday at 10 a.m. Reifeis and McAuley are 25-0. The state championship match is set for 2 p.m. on Saturday. “It’s an amazing feeling,” Arnold said. “It’s just crazy how much better we’ve gotten. “We’re one of the best six teams in the state. We’re not looking by anybody. We can’t look at record. But we don’t want to come back to Angola without a state champiwonship.” The Hornet duo was not bad last year as it went 20-7 and won the No. 1 doubles title in the Northeast Corner Conference Tournament and the DeKalb Invitational. Compared to the growth


Arnold and Nofziger has made this year, last year can be perceived has something along the lines of ordinary. A lot of offseason work and a lot of tennis on the United States Tennis Association circuit has taken them to another level. Arnold and Nofziger also both play baseball for AHS, so that adds to their tight-knit bond. “We’re both a year older. We gained a lot of experience from last year,” Nofziger said. “We know each other’s tendencies and play to each other’s strengths. Losing at semistate last year made us put in the extra work and it has made all the difference.” Playing for a state championship is the ultimate goal for most high school athletes. But it can appear to be a fantasy if the kids have

If we play well, we can stick with anybody.” In Friday’s other quarterfinal, Bishop Dwenger seniors Bertram Najev and Charlie Scott (25-1) will face Indianapolis Brebeuf Jesuit seniors Zach Smith and Scott Van der Weil (11-3). The winner of that match will play Evansville Memorial’s Chase Throop and Brandon Wu (24-3) in Saturday’s semifinals.

Jamie McMurray takes checkered flag at Talladega — second non-Chase driver Sprint Cup victory in a row

Harold Hinson for Chevrolet


hardt Jr., with plenty of drafting help in the form of Austin Dillon, was about to make a move on McMurray off Turn Two, thirdrunning Dillon and fourth-running Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wrecked. That brought out the caution flag and sealed the win for McMurray as NASCAR set the finishing order by how the drivers were running when the yellow flag was displayed. Behind the leaders, Jimmie Johnson, with a 13th-place finish, took the points lead from Matt Kenseth, who finished 20th after leading 32 laps earlier in the race. Other than the last-lap crash, the race was far from typical for Talladega. There was no “Big One” crash, and instead of running in a big pack in the closing laps, the leaders wound up running single-file in the outside groove, and essentially finished where they were running when the race was flagged for the Stenhouse-Dillon crash. Earnhardt, who finished second, said he didn’t make a move earlier because he feared no one would go with him and he’d drop to the back of the pack. “I was in perfect position to be patient and wait as long as I wanted to,” Earnhardt said. “So that’s why we didn’t go any sooner than that. I just can’t anticipate a caution coming out every single time we run at Talladega race on the last lap, so I just assumed it would go to checkered, and was planning my move on the back straightaway.” McMurray said he was doing all he could to keep Earnhardt at bay. “When I got to the lead, I was trying to enter [the corners] a little bit lower so we weren’t using so much race track, so that if everyone behind me would follow, maybe the bottom line wouldn’t develop and move up as fast,” he said. “Every time I entered lower, I would get away from [Earnhardt],

In winning the Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday, Jamie McMurray became the secondstraight non-Chase driver to win a Sprint Cup race this season. It was the first time since 2006 that non-Chase drivers won back-to-back Chase races. In ’06, Tony Stewart and Brian Vickers won at Kansas and Talladega, respectively, then Stewart won another two straight, at Atlanta and Texas. McMurray’s win, his first since 2010 at Charlotte and the seventh of his career, came a week after Brad Keselowski surged to victory at Charlotte Motor Speedway. McMurray won at Talladega from an unlikely position — holding the lead halfway through the final lap. Just as it looked as if eventual second-place finisher Dale Earn-

Chase contender Kyle Busch was fifth, with non-Chase drivers David Ragan, David Gilliland and Martin Truex Jr. taking positions six through eight. All told, six of the top eight spots went to non-Chase drivers, a reversal of the usual scenario in the Chase.

‘Wild card’ oval tracks challenge drivers with back-to-back Sprint Cup races A standard deck of playing cards has two jokers, much like the typical Chase for the Sprint Cup has two “wild cards” in the form of back-to-back races at Talladega Superspeedway and Martinsville Speedway. Those two tracks — one the longest oval on the Cup circuit and the other the shortest — have little in common other than their propensity to set the stage for crashes that can quickly scramble the finishing order and thereby bring about great change in the Cup points standings. Two Chase leaders — Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon — are among the best ever at Martinsville, with Johnson owning eight wins, including one there in April, and Gordon seven. On the other hand, Matt Kenseth, who lost the points lead to Johnson at Talladega, has never won at Martinsville and has an average finish of 15.8. His best Martinsville finish came back in 2002, when he was runner-up to Bobby Labonte. But since moving to Joe Gibbs Racing for the start of this season, where he’s a teammate to four-time Martinsville winner Denny Hamlin, he has an all-new outlook about the tricky, paper-clip-shaped track nestled in the picturesque Virginia foothills. He’s particularly encouraged after his run there in April, where he wound up 14th,

Martinsville Speedway track map but felt he was capable of a much higher finish. “We got off a little bit in the middle of the race, and then we pitted at the end and lost some spots, but I thought we were going to finish sixth or seventh if we wouldn’t have pitted,” he said, pointing out that he led more laps in that race (96) than he had in all of his previous Martinsville starts (73). “I thought we had a good car there.” Kenseth said that while he’s not generally considered a short-track specialist, his results this year are showing that previous performances while he was driving for Roush Fenway Racing are no indication of the way he’ll run this year at Gibbs.

“You look at tracks that you feel are some of your worst, and then you look at some you feel are your best, and if I just look through the last five weeks, I think we’ve had our best finishes at the two tracks I thought would have been our worst,” he said. “And some of our worst finishes so far are at the tracks I thought would have been our best. “You don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s been a fun year because [Joe Gibbs Racing] has made me run a lot better at tracks where we usually don’t run good at. “Hopefully, Martinsville will be one of those.” Gordon, on the other hand, said he believes his past performances at Martinsville are an indication that he has the potential to shine on Sunday, if he and his Hendrick Motorsports team can fix a few weak spots. “I’m excited about Martinsville,” he said. “I love that track. We always run well. “We’ve got to figure out how to lead as much in the second half of the race as we do in the first half. That’s where our focus is. You know there are going to be some classic battles there. It’s short-track racing, hard-braking, side-by-side; it’s probably one of the toughest places that we race at and certainly plenty of contact.”

Veteran Sprint Cup crew chief Todd Parrott faces an uncertain future after he was indefinitely suspended from NASCAR last week for violating the sanctioning body’s Substance Abuse Policy. Parrott has 31 career victories and was working as crew chief for the No. 43 Ford driven by Aric Almirola at Richard Petty Motorsports before his suspension. Sammy Johns, the team’s vice president of operations and competition, took over the crew chief duties of the No. 43, which started on the pole at Talladega and finished 22nd. Johns said in a statement that he and his team support NASCAR’s substance abuse policies. “We have an expectation of all RPM employees to conduct themselves at the highest level of professionalism and within the competitive confines as set forth by NASCAR,” Johns said. “We are very disappointed that one of our employees did not meet our expectations, and we completely support NASCAR, their policies and final decisions when it comes to the substance abuse policy.”

Sauter victorious in CWTS Fred’s 250 at Talladega While 12 of his competitors were wrecking behind him on the last lap at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday, Johnny Sauter had clear sailing at the front as he sped across the finish line to win the Fred’s 250 Camping World Truck Series race. It was Sauter’s third win of the season and the ninth of his career, and it came in a race that saw a track record 29 lead changes for a Truck race. “I had a pretty good idea what was going to happen (at the end),” Sauter said. “Everybody was fighting for the same real estate. I’ve always wanted to win at [Talladega], and to be able to do it today was big.” Justin Lofton was the only driver to suffer an injury in the crash. He has a fractured left thumb, according to his team.



Laps led in the past 17 Sprint Cup races at Martinsville Speedway by Jimmie Johnson, tops among drivers.


Career laps led at Martinsville by Joey Logano, in nine starts — the fewest of any driver in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Stevens, Celtics close preseason with win over Nets BOSTON (AP) — Avery Bradley and Brandon Bass scored 16 points apiece and Vitor Faverani added 15 points and seven rebounds as the Boston Celtics closed out the preseason with a 101-97 victory over the short-handed Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.

Dolphins QB Tannehill battling shoulder injuries DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is nursing a right shoulder injury that’s limiting his practice time. Tannehill has been sacked 26 times to lead the NFL but hasn’t missed a snap this season. His injury wasn’t disclosed until the Dolphins issued a practice report Wednesday. Miami (3-3) plays at New England (5-2) on Sunday. Tannehill was also listed with a sore right shoulder during the week leading up to the Dolphins’ third game this season.

Indians asking fans for opinion on ‘Wahoo’ logo CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians are asking some fans for their opinions on the team’s “Chief Wahoo” logo. As part of their annual postseason survey to gauge fan satisfaction, the team is asking fans for feedback on a variety of topics including in-game experience, uniforms and Cleveland’s smiling Indians logo, a caricature some of have labeled offensive. In the survey, fans are asked to give their stance on five statements regarding the logo. The survey asks for similar responses — on a standard, five-choice scale — on the team’s “Block C” and “Script Indians logo.” The Indians have no immediate plans to change any of their logos. And although not connected, the Indians’ review of their fans’ attitudes about the logos comes as the Washington Redskins are being pressured to change their nickname.

Washington’s Merriweather sees suspension reduced NEW YORK (AP) — Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has had his two-game suspension cut in half by an appeals officer. Meriweather was suspended Monday by the NFL for repeated violations of player safety rules. But hearing officer Ted Cottrell reduced the fine to one game Wednesday. Cottrell is jointly appointed to the position by the league and the players union. Meriweather’s suspension by NFL vice president of football operations Merton Hanks came for repeated hits to the head and neck area of defenseless players, including two in Sunday’s Washington-Chicago game. He was flagged for a helmet-to-helmet hit on receiver Alshon Jeffery in the fourth quarter and for a helmet-first hit to the head and neck area of receiver Brandon Marshall. He also was fined $42,000 for a helmetfirst hit on Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy in Week 2, forcing Lacy out of the game with a concussion. Later in that same game, another helmet-first hit left Meriweather with a concussion, knocking him out of the game. Meriweather will lose about $70,000 in salary as he sits out Sunday’s game at Denver. He is not allowed to participate in any football activities with the team during the suspension. Meriweather said after Sunday’s game that he thought both hits against the Bears were legal.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A man hired to look after the cars of Philadelphia Eagles players during games is charged with stealing $225,000 from one player’s bank account. Federal officials said Wednesday that 37-year-old Robert Von Ryan of Philadelphia is charged with bank fraud. U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger says Von Ryan went into Eagles guard Todd Herremans’ car and took documents containing the player’s checking account information, enabling him to transfer more than $225,000 from Herremans’ account to his own from 2009 to 2012. An Eagles spokesman says Von Ryan worked for a subcontractor security service that is no longer used by the team. The spokesman says Herremans was reimbursed by his insurance company.

We stayed in them for all the wrong reasons. We have been together for three years, live together, love each other unconditionally and have talked extensively about getting married. My question is, am I wrong to expect a traditional proposal with an engagement ring? It is important to me that he would think enough of me to plan one. I feel if he did it for his first wife, he should do the same — or more — for me. Would it be in bad taste to mention this? — ASKING TOO MUCH? IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR ASKING TOO MUCH?: Unless one of your companion’s attributes




DEAR ABBY: Enlighten me, please. A friend told me her daughter is expecting. She has not said one word about a boyfriend or marriage. How do I diplomatically ask, “Who is the father?” — OUT OF THE LOOP OUT WEST DEAR OUT OF THE LOOP: If Grandma-to-be is keeping mum, you can bet there’s a reason. If the father was Prince Harry, she would be trumpeting it from the rooftops. Your friend may not know who the father is or have some other reason for not disclosing it. Unless you want to tiptoe through a minefield, my advice is DON’T GO THERE. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Kennedy went into effect during the missile crisis. • In 1940, the 40-hour work week went into effect under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. • In 1972, Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, who’d broken Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947, died in Stamford, Conn., at age 53.


Changing white fat to brown can help obesity thought that adult humans had only white fat. We knew some adult animals had brown fat, and that human babies did, too. But we thought babies lost their brown fat as they grew older. Discoveries here at Harvard Medical found ASK School that all of DOCTOR K. us maintain some brown fat cells Dr. Anthony throughout our life. Komaroff Why is this important? White fat cells store fat. When we get “fat” — when those love handles start to appear — that’s because we’re growing more and bigger white fat cells.

Brown fat cells, on the other hand, don’t store fat; they burn it. They are brown because they contain lots of mitochondria, the energy factories inside each cell. The mitochondria in brown fat cells burn fat to create one kind of energy: heat. Animals with relatively more brown fat are less likely to develop insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes. They’re also less fat, because they burn more fat and store less fat. In other words, it appears that brown fat wards off obesity. These findings would be interesting — but not particularly relevant — if we couldn’t control the amount of white and brown fat in our bodies. But ongoing research suggests we can. Colleagues here at Harvard have recently discovered natural chemicals in all of us that affect the number of white and brown fat cells. One is a molecule

DEAR DOCTOR K: In a recent column about abdominal fat, you talked about two kinds of fat — brown fat and white fat. I’d like to hear more about them. DEAR READER: I’m glad you asked, because the discovery of these two types of fat could prove to be very important. In the column you’re referring to, I discussed how visceral, or abdominal, fat (which accumulates deep inside the abdomen) is more harmful to our health than subcutaneous fat (the fat just beneath the skin). But when it comes to fat, it’s not just location that matters. Color counts, too — and brown is better. Humans and other mammals have two types of fat: white fat and brown fat. (There may also be a third kind that’s in between, sometimes called “beige fat.”) Until very recently, we

is clairvoyance, express your feelings. He may not be aware that you would feel somehow cheated if he doesn’t come forth with a gesture that is “equal or better” than what his ex received. Consider DEAR carefully ABBY what resulted from that first fancy Jeanne Phillips proposal. An essential ingredient in a successful relationship is the ability to express one’s wants and needs to the other partner. I would only suggest that when you do, your thoughts are couched as a request and not a demand.

called irisin. This hormone is produced by muscle cells, particularly when those cells are regularly exercised. It circulates through the blood and transforms white fat cells into brown fat cells. When obese mice with insulin resistance are given injections of irisin, they lose weight and have reduced insulin resistance. This discovery has excited scientists, for obvious reasons. If it worked the same way in humans, and without side effects, it could have huge health benefits. A word of caution: Many “silver bullets” for obesity have come and gone. Still, I’d bet on this newly discovered molecule, and on other advances triggered by the discovery that we adult humans have brown fat. DR.

Church checks into Bishop’s luxury Deputies shoot boy in California VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis expelled a German bishop from his diocese on Wednesday pending the outcome of a church inquiry into his 31 million-euro ($43-million) new residence complex. The Vatican didn’t say how long Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, 53, would spend away from the diocese of Limburg but it refused calls to remove him permanently. It gave no information on where he would go or what he would do. The Vatican said the bishop was leaving pending the outcome of a German church investigation into the expenditures and his role in the affair. Fellow bishops and lay Catholics in the diocese, however, expressed doubt that he would ever be able to return. “This is a crisis of confidence that will be hard to overcome,” said the dean of the cathedral chapter, Guenther Geis. Limburg’s vicar general, the Rev. Wolfgang Roesch, who had been due to start Jan. 1, will instead begin work immediately and will run the diocese during Tebartz-van Elst’s absence, the Vatican said. At the center of the controversy is the huge price tag for the construction of a new bishop’s residence complex and related renovations. Tebartz-van Elst has defended the expenditures, saying the bill was actually for 10 projects and there were additional costs because the buildings were under historical protection. But in a country where

Martin Luther launched the Reformation five centuries ago in response to what he said were excesses and abuses within the church, the outcry has been enormous. The perceived lack of financial transparency has also struck a chord since a church tax in Germany brings in billions a year to the German church. Tebartz-van Elst’s leadership style has also been criticized. In August and September, more than 4,000 people signed an open letter to the bishop criticizing what they considered his authoritarian style. The head of the German bishops’ confer-

ence, Archbishop Robert Zollitsch, has been particularly blunt in his criticism of the expenditures and the credibility problem it was causing the church. He said the “decisive” turning point came when Hamburg prosecutors earlier this month asked a court to levy an unspecified fine against the bishop for false testimony in a related case. Zollitsch has said the church commission will investigate the costs of the renovation, the financing and how decisions about the restoration evolved. Canon lawyers will determine if Tebartz-van Elst violated church law regarding the use of church money,

Zollitsch said. In a statement Wednesday, Zollitsch pledged that the commission would do its work “quickly and carefully.” Francis’ decision opens “a space to return to inner calm and create a new basis for talks,” he said. The Vatican stressed that Francis took the decision based on “objective” information, suggesting that the Vatican wasn’t being swayed by the popular outcry. Francis has also made it clear he expects his bishops to live simply, setting as an example his own humble lifestyle. Tebartz-van Elst met with Francis on Monday.

Middle School assistant principal Linsey Gannon. “Andy was a very loved student, a very popular, very handsome young man, very smart and capable,” Gannon said Wednesday. “Our community has been rocked by his loss.” Even members of law enforcement expressed sympathy. In a statement, Sheriff Steve Freitas said the shooting was a “tragedy” and that he would do everything he could to ensure the investigation was thorough and transparent. “As a father of two boys about this age, I can’t begin to imagine the grief this family is going through,” he said. After the deputies spotted the boy Tuesday, they called for backup and repeatedly ordered him to drop the gun, sheriff’s Lt. Dennis O’Leary said in a news release. His back was turned toward the deputies, and they did not realize at the time that he was a boy. According to the Santa Rosa police, the boy was about 20 to 30 feet from them when he turned toward the deputies with the gun and they opened fire. A neighbor in the area, Brian Zastrow, told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat he heard seven shots. “First, I heard a single siren and within seconds I heard seven shots go off, sounded like a nail gun, is what I thought it was,” he said.

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California community is anguished over the fatal police shooting of a popular, 13-year-old boy who had been carrying a pellet gun that looked like an assault rifle. Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies had repeatedly asked the boy, Andy Lopez, to drop the weapon, but instead he raised it in their direction, police said at a news conference Wednesday. Only after the shooting did deputies realize the gun was a replica that looked strikingly similar to a real AK-47 assault rifle. Residents of Santa Rosa, a suburban town of roughly 170,000 people about 50 miles northwest of San Francisco in California’s wine country, were shaken by the boy’s death. Many expressed their grief by leaving candles, teddy bears and flowers at the edge of the field where the teen was shot Tuesday afternoon. Some community members wondered whether the deputies acted appropriately when they decided to fire on such a young person. “I’m sure you can tell he’s a 13-year-old boy,” Abrey Martin told KGO-TV. “He’s not some maniac.” Andy, an eighth-grade student who played trumpet in his school band, was described as a bright and popular student, liked by many in his community, including Lawrence Cook

Sex offender not free long after maneuvering into US SEATTLE (AP) — For a few weeks, Michael Sean Stanley managed to cut away from a troubled life in Canada and navigate a bizarre pathway to freedom. The sex offender removed his electronic monitoring bracelet, eluded a Canadian manhunt and headed for the border. He was allowed to cross into Washington state, where local authorities told the U.S. citizen to register as a sex offender but didn’t arrest him, since he’d committed no crimes here. Less than four days after registering, Stanley was accused this week of sexually assaulting a

16-year-old in a Seattle alley in a case that has caused alarm on both sides of the border and exposed a challenging dynamic of cross-border relations. “This, for us, was the worst-case scenario,” Seattle Police Det. Renee Witt said. “Our worst fear was realized when this kid came forward and said Stanley had attempted to sexually assault him.” Stanley’s criminal record in Canada dates back 25 years. He most recently served a 32-month prison term after luring two mentally challenged boys into an apartment, lighting a crack pipe and

blowing smoke in their faces and then sexually assaulting them. Parole board documents also describe another case in which Stanley broke into an elderly woman’s apartment while she was sleeping and sexually assaulted her. In other cases, Stanley was found in the bedroom of two young girls, was accused of assaulting another girl and had numerous violent encounters, according to parole records. He was being monitored by police under a peace bond, which Canadian authorities can get to impose conditions on individuals in the community.


Michael Sean Stanley, right, appears in court with defense attorney Nick Gross, Wednesday in Seattle. Days after Canadian authorities decided not to extradite Stanley, a violent sex offender who crossed into the U.S., he is in custody, suspected of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy.
