Stutzman won’t accept pay in shutdown GOOD MORNING

Apple Festival Time The 28th annual Apple Festival of Kendallville takes place Saturday and Sunday at the Noble County Fairgrounds. Our 16-page guide to enjoying the festival appears inside today’s edition.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — More than 80 federal lawmakers have said “no” when it comes to getting paid during the government shutdown — including U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Howe. A report in The Washington Post said through early Wednesday afternoon, 42 Republicans and 44 Democrats said they plan to donate their pay or refuse compensation earned during the impasse. Stutzman announced his decision on his Facebook page Tuesday evening. The statement said, “Today, I asked Congress’ chief administrative officer to withhold my pay during this shutdown. House Republicans have passed four plans to fully fund the federal government, but the Senate has rejected each of

them. It’s time for (Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid and President Obama to come to the table.” The Post report said members of Congress are paid Stutzman $174,000 annually, and this money is constitutionally mandated to be paid, so it is not affected by the shutdown. Also Wednesday, Stutzman introduced the GARDS Act to ensure that National Guard is paid during the government shutdown. His “Guard Appropriation Restoration During Shutdown Act” fully funds National Guard operations during the government

shutdown and amends the Pay Our Military Act to ensure members of the National Guard, military technicians, and critical personnel remain paid during the government shutdown. “The men and women who serve in our nation’s National Guard and their families should not be victims of President Obama and Senate Democrats’ shutdown. Yet that is what is happening as Harry Reid has rejected four House-passed bills to keep the government open and our National Guard paid,” Stutzman said in a news release. “I’ve introduced legislation to fully fund operations and pay for the National Guard during this shutdown,” Stutzman said. “… I am convinced that decisive

Words, but no action

Talks aim to keep Amtrak line running INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A spokesman for Indiana’s transportation agency says the state is making progress negotiating a short-term agreement with Amtrak to keep a passenger line between Indianapolis and Chicago running until a comprehensive deal is reached. The Hoosier State line’s $3.1 million in annual federal funding ended Tuesday as part of legislation Congress passed in 2008. The four-days-a-week line will grind to a halt if Indiana and Amtrak and the communities it serves can’t reach a funding agreement by Oct. 15.

Turkey Run bridge open after repairs MARSHALL (AP) — A 200-foot-long suspension bridge at western Indiana’s Turkey Run State Park is set to reopen to the public Friday following repairs that fixed damage inflicted by spring flooding. Crews spent about two months replacing beams, suspension cable and other parts of the 95-year-old bridge, including its concrete support towers. The bridge was built in 1918, two years after Turkey Run became a state park. It spans Sugar Creek and links the park’s developed area with the more remote northern section.

action must be taken at the federal level to take care of these men and women who have answered the call of duty and selflessly serve our country and state. If Senate Democrats are unwilling to negotiate on comprehensive legislation, let’s start with areas of agreement — let’s start by standing up for our National Guard.” Stutzman said 1,000 Indiana National Guard employees were furloughed Tuesday. He said while the Senate has passed and President Obama has signed the House-passed Pay Our Military Act, to pay the salaries and allowances of members of the Armed Forces, separate legislation is required to ensure pay and operations for the National Guard.

Voucher use increases again BY KATHRYN BASSETT

The number of students applying to attend northeast Indiana private schools with School Choice Scholarships continues to grow each year, school administrators report. This week the Indiana Department of Education said the private school voucher plan received more than 20,000 applications for 2013-14. The program has grown from 3,900 when it first started in 2011 to more than 9,300 last year. School Choice Scholarships are awarded based on family income. Local private schools report similar patterns in the rising numbers of voucher students. “We’ve seen an increase in the number of voucher students each year,” said Tim Walz, principal

of St. John Lutheran School in Kendallville. This year, 51 of the school’s 166 students are enrolled through the voucher program. Last year, St. John had 27 voucher students, compared to 10 voucher students reported by the DOE in 2011. This year, Lakewood Park Christian School in rural Auburn has 143 voucher students, superintendent Ed Yoder reported. Lakewood had 62 voucher students at this time last year. In 2011, Lakewood had 26 voucher students. The Howe School has not seen an increase in its number of students attending through the voucher program. Three students at the school are receiving vouchers this year, the school reported. This year’s voucher enrollment

was not available for St. Joseph’s School in Garrett and St. Mary School in Avilla. The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend Catholic Schools Office has asked principals not to share student data that might compromise the confidentiality of families and children, said Mark Myers, secretariat for the Office of Catholic Education Superintendent of Schools. Myers said in some cases, public disclosure of numbers could lead to speculation about the identification of children who have been awarded School Choice Scholarships. Statewide, the number of vouchers awarded to students attending Indiana Catholic schools has grown 3,970 this year, up from 766 in 2011-12 and 1,767 in 2012-13, Myers said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama brought congressional leaders to the White House on Wednesday for the first time since a partial government shutdown began, but there was no sign of progress toward ending an impasse that has idled 800,000 federal workers and curbed services around the country. Obama “refuses to negotiate,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio., told reporters after private talks that lasted more than an hour. “All we’re asking for here is a discussion and fairness for the American people under Obamacare.” But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said moments later, “We’re locked in tight on Obamacare” and neither the president nor Democrats will accept changes in the nation’s 3-year-old health care law as the price for spending legislation needed to end the two-day partial shutdown. With the nation’s ability to borrow money soon to lapse, Republicans and Democrats alike said the shutdown could last for two weeks or more, and soon oblige a divided government to grapple with both economy-threatening issues at the same time. The White House said in a statement after the meeting that Obama had made it clear “he is not going to negotiate over the need for Congress to act to reopen the government or to raise the debt SEE TALK, PAGE A6

Funds raised for upgrades to Floral Hall BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — One of the oldest buildings in the Noble County Fairgrounds is undergoing interior upgrades and will get a new roof, thanks to the efforts of the Noble County Extension Homemakers, donations from individuals and businesses and foundation grants. More than $32,000 has been raised for a new roof on Floral Hall, built in 1883 as one of the first buildings at the fairgrounds. Julie A. Leighty, Purdue Extension Service secretary, announced the effort’s success Monday. “A very big thanks goes out to all that donated time, money and energy to this project,” Leighty said in a news release. More than $10,000 was raised from private donations. When combined with a $10,000 matching grant from the Olive

B. Cole Foundation, a $10,000 matching grant from the Dekko Foundation and a $2,000 grant from the Noble County Community Foundation, the goal of $32,000 was achieved, and the process of replacing the leaking roof can begin next year. After Floral Hall fell into disrepair in 2009, the Noble County Extension Homemakers began to fund and make repairs and upgrades, mostly to the building’s interior, according to Leighty. They replaced its old, wooden lattice with maintenance-free white lattice and the warped, dark paneling with an off-white pegboard; painted interior surfaces; cleaned out and removed unwanted items and repaired light fixtures and the four, large entrance doors. The Noble County Fair Board supplied paint and painters to repaint the building’s exterior. SEE FUNDS, PAGE A6

Regional Roundup • Curling facility to open in Fort Wayne FORT WAYNE — The Fort Wayne Curling Club has leased warehouse space within the Wells Street Commerce Center that will become the first dedicated curling facility in the history of the city. Located a block south of the Lutheran Health SportsCenter, where the club has been operating, the new facility is at the site of the former Nickle’s Bakery & Thrift shop. It will have three sheets of ice dedicated to curling and a 2,400-square-foot warm room to provide off-ice viewing of curling matches. The location will be used for curling from Oct.

1 through mid-April each year, and will offer men’s, women’s, junior’s, mixed and open leagues. One night a week will be reserved for “learn to curl” sessions and corporate and private events.

Trout thriving in Little Elkhart MIDDLEBURY (AP) — A northern Indiana group dedicated to protecting and restoring cold-water fisheries has turned the Little Elkhart River into a permanent habitat for trout. The success is the work of the local chapter of Trout Unlimited. The group has enlisted volunteers to build log jams and underwater shelters to create a better habitat for the trout.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana lawmakers studying the state’s use of a national set of reading and math education standards haven’t been able to decide whether they recommend those be kept, changed or dropped. The six Republicans and six Democrats on the committee voted Tuesday to approve a report with no direction on how the state should proceed with the Common Core State Standards. The committee was formed after the General Assembly this spring approved a bill “pausing” implementation of the standards, which had been adopted by the State Board of Education in 2010. Committee co-chairman Rep. Robert Behning, R-Indianapolis, said a proposal to drop the Common Core and implement Indiana-designed standards has been considered by panel members, but hasn’t gained enough support. Behning, who has supported the Common Core standards, said he had hoped for a consensus among the committee members. “We’re not too far away from getting some agreement, but at this point in time we don’t have it,” he said. Some legislators have complained that Indiana

has lost control over local schools by using the teaching standards developed by a national group of state school officials and since adopted by more than 40 states. The committee’s nonbinding recommendations would go to the State Board of Education, which is to hold at least three more public hearings on the standards and their future by next July. Sen. Carlin Yoder, R-Middlebury, said he wanted to see Indiana create new standards that borrow from the Common Core and the state’s previous standards. “I heard from parents, teachers and community members that Indiana must maintain its sovereignty with regard to our education standards, and withdrawing from Common Core allows us to do just that,” Yoder said. Republican Gov. Mike Pence supported the move to suspend implementation of the national standards for a year while the new state reviews are conducted. The Indiana Chamber of Commerce and other Common Core supporters say the state’s education officials have been reviewing the benchmarks for years and that the additional review isn’t necessary.

Suspensions handed down in football brawl INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana High School Athletic Association suspended two head coaches, two assistant coaches and several unidentified players for participating in a brawl Friday night. Commissioner Bobby Cox also put Indianapolis Arsenal Tech and Fort Wayne South Side on probation for 2013 and 2014.

The punishments handed down Tuesday stem from a fight that forced Friday night’s football game to be stopped. Tech coach Emil Ekyior and Fort Wayne South Side coach Eddie Fields were given one-game suspensions. Tech assistant Angelo Muhammad and South assistant Dan Muchler are out the rest of the season.

JERUSALEM (AP) — President Barack Obama’s decision to open a dialogue with Iran’s new president appears to have robbed Israel of a key asset in its campaign to prevent the Islamic Republic from developing a nuclear weapon: the threat of unilaterally attacking Iranian nuclear facilities. Despite some tough rhetoric in a speech to the U.N. by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, it will be all but impossible for Israel to take military action once negotiations between Iran and world powers resume. As a result, Israel could find itself sidelined in the international debate over how to handle the suspect Iranian nuclear program over the coming months and reliant on the United States at a time when American credibility in the region is in question. For years, Netanyahu has warned that Iran is steadily marching toward the development of nuclear weapons, an assessment widely shared by the West. While welcoming international sanctions and diplomacy to engage Iran, Netanyahu has repeatedly said these efforts must be backed by a “credible” military threat. Iran says its nuclear program is solely for peaceful purposes. Addressing the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Netanyahu repeated his mantra that Israel is prepared to act alone if it determines diplomacy has failed. “Israel will never acquiesce to nuclear arms in the hands of a rogue regime that repeatedly promises to wipe us off the map. Against such a threat, Israel will have no choice but to defend itself,” he said. “I want there

to be no confusion on this point. Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons. If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone.” Israel considers a nucleararmed Iran a threat to its very survival, given repeated Iranian assertions that the Jewish state should not exist. Israel has a long list of other grievances against Iran, citing its support for hostile Arab militant groups, its development of long-range missiles and alleged Iranian involvement in attacks on Israeli targets around the world. Yet behind Netanyahu’s rhetoric, his options appear to be limited as a consequence of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s outreach to the West. At the U.N. last week, Rouhani delivered a conciliatory speech in which he said Iran has no intention of building a nuclear weapon and declared his readiness for new negotiations with world powers. Capping off the visit, Rouhani and Obama held a 15-minute phone call as the Iranian leader was traveling to the airport. It was the first conversation between the nations’ leaders in 34 years and raised hopes that a breakthrough on the nuclear issue could portend even deeper ties between the U.S. and Iran. Netanyahu has greeted Rouhani’s outreach with deep skepticism, expressing fears that Iran will use upcoming nuclear talks as a ploy to get the world to ease painful economic sanctions while secretly pressing forward with its nuclear program. In his address Tuesday, Netanyahu urged the world to step up the pressure on Iran until its nuclear weapons program is

Death In The News • ‘Red October’ novelist Tom Clancy dies at 66 NEW YORK (AP) — In 1985, a year after the Cold War thriller “The Hunt for Red October” came out, Tom Clancy was invited to lunch at the White House, where he was questioned by Navy Secretary John Lehman. Who, the secretary wanted to know, gave Clancy access to all that secret material? Clancy, the best-selling novelist who died Tuesday in Baltimore at 66, insisted then, and after, that his information was strictly unclassified: books, interviews and papers that were easily accessed. Also, two submarine officers Clancy reviewed the final manuscript. Government officials may have worried how Clancy knew that a Russian submarine spent only around 15 percent of its time at sea or how many SS-N-20 Seahawk missiles it carried. But his extreme attention to technical detail earned him respect inside the intelligence community and beyond and helped make Clancy the most widely read and influential military novelist of his time, one who seemed to capture a shift in the country’s mood away from the CIA misdeeds that came out in the 1970s to the heroic feats of Clancy’s most famous creation, CIA analyst Jack Ryan. Several of his novels, including “The Hunt for Red October,” ”Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger,” were later made into blockbuster movies, with another, “Jack Ryan,” set for release on Christmas. “Fundamentally, I think of myself as a storyteller, not a writer,” Clancy once said. “I think about the characters I’ve created, and then I sit down and start typing and see what they will do. There’s a lot of subconscious thought that goes on. It amazes me to find out, a few chapters later, why I put someone in a certain place when I did. It’s spooky.”

Khodadad Seifi, a member of the Iranian delegation, responds to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Tuesday, at U.N. headquarters. dismantled. In Israel, Netanyahu enjoys wide public support for his hard-line approach toward Iran. On Wednesday, Israeli politicians and newspaper columnists generally praised his U.N. speech. But many expressed doubt that Netanyahu could change the West’s optimism about Rouhani. “The great question is whether we still have today the ability to act alone, or whether we have missed the boat, and along the way lost the world too, which wants to pursue a different path and connect with the new and misleading wind that is blowing from the direction of Iran,” columnist Shalom Yerushalmi wrote in the

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — American Indian tribes have more than access to national parks on the line with the government shutdown, as federal funding has been cut off for crucial services including foster care payments, nutrition programs and financial assistance for the needy. Some tribes intend to fill the gap themselves, risking deficits of their own to cushion communities with chronic high unemployment and poverty against the effects of the budget battle in Washington, D.C. But for others, basic services heavily subsidized by federal payments stand to take a direct hit. “Do we just throw kids onto the street, or do we help them? Most likely we’re going to help those families and do whatever we can until this is unresolved,” said Tracy “Ching” King, president of northern Montana’s Fort Belknap Reservation.

Affairs says essential activities such as law enforcement, firefighting and some social services will continue. Programs that did not make the list include residential care for children and adults, cash assistance for the poor and payments to vendors who provide foster care. How long those programs will continue on reservations depends on the duration of the shutdown and how much money individual tribes can spare. The BIA provides services to more than 1.7 million American Indians and Alaska Natives from more than 500 recognized tribes. Crow Chairman Darrin Old Coyote says the southeastern Montana tribe is suspending bus service to remote communities and on Wednesday could furlough dozens of employees, including workers at a long-anticipated irrigation project intended to spur economic development on the remote reservation.

Maariv daily. At a White House meeting on Monday, Obama reassured the visiting Israeli leader that the U.S. will never allow Iran to produce a nuclear weapon. Such words may provide little comfort in Israel, where many are questioning Obama’s willingness to take military action following his recent handling of the Syrian chemical weapons crisis. After threatening to attack Syria over its apparent use of chemical weapons against civilians, Obama backed down in exchange for pledges to dismantle Syria’s chemical arsenal. Netanyahu has greeted the Russia-brokered deal on the Syrian chemical weapons with only lukewarm support.

Judge Michael J. Kramer of Noble Superior Court, Div. 2, Albion, met tennis legend Andre Agassi in Washington, D.C., at a recent event to help battle illegal drug use.

Agassi inspires with humility, dedication to anti-drug battle BY MICHAEL KRAMER

I serve on the board of directors of Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, which recently held its annual Drug-Free Kids Campaign dinner fundraiser in Washington, D.C. This year’s honoree was Stacie Mathewson, a philanthropist who began a foundation to help youth who are addicted to alcohol or drugs after her son became addicted to prescripUnfortunately, the tion drugs. dinner did not reach the Tragically, this spring, budget set to be raised. after Mrs. When Andre learned Mathewson had agreed to of this he offered to sell be the dinner two opportunities to honoree, her son come to his home, have died from lunch with him and his a heroin overdose. wife, Steffi Graf, also a Mr. and Mrs. tennis legend, and then Mathewson play tennis with them. are friends with tennis legend Andre Agassi, who attended the dinner to introduce her. Andre Agassi’s foundation operates a tuition-free school for at-risk youth. The school has a 100 percent graduation and college acceptance rate. Andre Agassi arrived early during a pre-dinner reception and did not have security around him. He was talking with anyone who approached him and having pictures taken with them. I had my picture taken, but later found out that the flash did not work. CADCA is an international organization that provides training and technical assistance to community coalitions, such as Drug-Free Noble County, throughout the United States, runs a National Youth Leadership Initiative, and monitors public policy. Recently CADCA was asked to help form coalitions in foreign countries to reduce drug use and crime. Two very poised young people, a high school junior from Alabama and a senior at Northwestern University from Pennsylvania, spoke movingly about what they received from being part of the Youth Leadership Initiative and how their lives have changed. Both came from high-crime neighborhoods. The high school student said that she felt that she has discovered her purpose in life from what she learned. Unfortunately, the dinner did not reach the budget set to be raised. When Andre learned of this, he spoke about how moved he was by the work of CADCA and offered to sell two opportunities to come to his home, have lunch with him and his wife, Steffi Graf, also a tennis legend, and then play tennis with them. The price was $49,500. Andre immediately said that he was buying one because he loves playing tennis with his wife. That offer helped us to make our dinner budget. After the dinner, I saw Andre in the men’s room (I have met a lot of famous people in men’s rooms.) I told him how impressed I was with the work that he is doing with at-risk youth. He said that what is more impressive is the work we are doing. I mentioned that my photo did not come out and he said that he would take another with me. I was impressed that for someone who has been at the top of his sport and in the public eye for so long, Andre Agassi is such a friendly, accommodating person. He spoke with all that wished to talk with him. Although he works to raise money for his foundation, he supported our dinner.

Voice Of The People • School safety needs individualized planning, effort To the editor: A few weeks ago I had the privilege of bringing Noble County Commissioner Chad Kline to a School Safety Interim Study Committee meeting. It’s not every day that I have the opportunity to accompany members of our community to the Statehouse on a quest for knowledge. I’d like to thank Chad for his dedication to this issue and his willingness to go above and beyond to find the best policies for our schools. Keeping tabs on what is happening at the legislative level is one of the best ways to stay informed regarding issues directly affecting our schools and students. This committee met for the second time last week to discuss school resource officers, building equipment and technology and strategies for safety training. The horrific tragedies at schools across the country have sparked discussion

on the best ways to keep students safe. Experts in the fields of security, school safety and strategic planning came together and discussed their ideas, thoughts and opinions on the matter. Each school in Indiana — and really the country — has a different situation in regard to location, culture, atmosphere and expectation, creating the necessity of individualized research and planning. This is an issue that must be treated with the utmost concern and thoroughness. I’m not sure that there is a “right” answer, but there is a “best fit” for each school, and I will tell you that your state legislature is determined to find it. As an elected official, I value the opportunity to be a part of the body keeping Hoosiers safe and making Indiana the best place possible to live, work and raise a family. Taking the time to see what happens in our state’s Legislature and participating in the statewide conversations that craft our laws helps me to truly understand how to best represent the views

and interests of our community. Again, a sincere thanks goes out to Chad for his contribution to the discussion. Please feel free to share your thoughts with me as well. State Rep. Dave Ober Albion

Promoting downtown retail was a team effort It should be obvious to anyone who grew up in Kendallville in the 1950s and 1960s like me that the downtown business district is no longer the focal point for shoppers that it was 50-60 years ago. In those times it was the hangout for people of all ages with retailers offering everything most local shoppers today find at suburban shopping centers, Walmarts and Rural Kings and malls. It was the meeting place to gossip, the after school hangout for teens and the location for store window attractions and stepping over bicycles on sidewalks. There was the Strand Movie Theatre (one screen but many double features with cartoons), Diehl’s Sporting Goods, Barker’s Firestone, the V&A Restaurant, the A&P, Murphy’s Department Store, Central Drug Store, the Palace of Sweets, the Toggery, Sellick’s, Kirkwood’s, Red Manship’s barbershop, Barker’s Jewelry, J.C. Penney, Sears, Christianson’s Jewelry, a bakery, Gamble’s, Seagly’s, a popcorn stand and Klinkenberg’s, among the famous customer attractions. Kendallville has a somewhat active Downtown Business Association with a few retailers and professionals giving up their time and energy to promote the downtown as a place to stop, eat and purchase unique items with customer service a priority. In the 1950s and 1960s Kendallville had a very active Retail Merchants Association, and no Walmart, no Rural King and only one shopping center (Publix Shopping Center) away from Main Street. Retired local bank executive Tom Alberts dropped off a book containing the minutes from meetings of the Retail Merchants Association from 1951 through 1961 with a note “you may have a story out of this book.” Let’s have a look. It’s an archive of activities, events, promotions and “stunts” as they called

them 30 to 40 retail merchants did to keep shoppers coming. The pages have turned yellow, and some of handwritten notes are indecipherable, but the typed pages reveal a group always thinking of ways to separate cash from shoppers. The first entry recorded the Kendallville Retail Merchants Association meeting on Oct. 29, 1951 at the Publix Cafe with 35 members present, presided over by president Leonard Castle. Discussion centered on the Nov. 29 Christmas INSIDE opening and parade. The COMMENT Jaycees were put in charge of organizing the floats and bands, and members decided Dennis Nartker to find a local Santa rather than pay $75 for a Santa. It was decided to resume radio broadcasting of the parade. Store business hours came up over the 10 years of meeting minutes. Downtown stores closed Mondays through Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. except Wednesdays when stores closed at noon. The retailers discussed (and probably argued) whether they should close on Mondays, and stay open until 9 p.m. on Fridays or Saturdays or both days. No mention was made of Sunday hours. At the March 19, 1956 meeting George Kirkwood reported on the results of a customer poll. A total of 6,826 cards were mailed asking about store hours and 831 cards were returned or 10.5 percent. Those who preferred late night Fridays totalled 376. Those who preferred late night shopping on Saturday totalled 390, and those who preferred both nights totalled 30. Thirty-five had no opinion. The association voted to continue Saturday night hours and close on

• Wednesday afternoons. Myron Hutchins recommended store hours be publicized on the radio and in the newspaper. Promotions noted included Dollar Days in September, a spring opening, a Halloween promotion with store windows painted, a Christmas promotion with merchants putting decorated Christmas trees in their windows, a Santa Claus house for Santa to greet children and hand out free movie tickets, Old Fashion Days, Fun in the Sun, Gold Rush Days and support for the Rotary fish fry in the South Side gymnasium. On Aug. 30, 1961, police chief Sanford Jacoby spoke to the retail merchants about curtailing the vandalism to downtown businesses. To keep shoppers interested in “Shop Kendallville,” local retailers worked together rather than against each other. I can still taste the chocolate sodas at the Palace of Sweets and the Green Rivers at Klinkenberg’s.

The work will continue through 2014. Leaks were discovered in the roof and were getting worse, according to Leighty. The Noble County Extension Homemakers took on the project to replace the roof and sponsored a fund drive that began last winter. Bids were requested from area contractors, with a goal of raising $32,000 by June 2014. The Homemakers plan to rebid the project for work starting next spring. Area roofing contractors may submit bids to the Noble County Extension Office, 2090 N. S.R. 9, Suite D, Albion IN 46701. Floral Hall’s restoration won’t be complete with a new roof and the interior improvements. Replacing the cupola that once was on the roof and replacing the front porches once used by Extension Homemakers who sold watermelons by the slice are other possible projects. Those wishing to donate may contact the Extension office at 636-2111. The building may be one of the most unique county fairgrounds buildings in the state, according to Leighty.


The 130-year-old Floral Hall on the Noble County Fairgrounds is undergoing restoration that will include a new roof next year.

Over the years it has housed 4-H projects, and at one time bunks were located in loft areas for fairgoers who traveled long distances to the fair. It has been the scene of puppet shows, weaving demonstrations, musical performances, Gaslight Playhouse Theatre shows and weddings. During this weekend’s Apple Festival of Kendallville, Floral Hall will be the venue for the Dekko Little Pioneer Stage with puppet shows, storytellers and entertainers.

TALK: All Republicans oppose Democrats’ House measure to bring halt to shutdown FROM PAGE A1

limit to pay the bills Congress has already incurred.� It added, “The president remains hopeful that common sense will prevail.� The high-level bickering at microphones set up outside the White House reflected the day’s proceedings in the Capitol. The Republican-controlled House approved legislation to reopen the nation’s parks and the National Institutes of Health, even though many Democrats criticized them as part of a piecemeal approach that fell far short of what was needed. The bills face dim prospects in the Senate, and the White House threatened to veto both in the unlikely event they make it to Obama’s desk. “What we’re trying to do is

to get the government open as quickly as possible,� said the House majority leader, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia. “And all that it would take is us realizing we have a lot in agreement.� Earlier, an attempt by Democrats to force shutdown-ending legislation to the House floor failed on a 227-197 vote, with all Republicans in opposition. That left intact the tea party-driven strategy of demanding changes to the nation’s health care overhaul as the price for essential federal financing, despite grumbling from Republican moderates. The stock market ended lower as Wall Street CEOs, Europe’s central banker and traders pressed for a solution before serious damage is done to the economy. Chief executives from the nation’s biggest

financial firms met with Obama for more than an hour Wednesday, some of them plainly frustrated with the tactics at play in Congress and with the potential showdown coming over the debt limit. “You can re-litigate these policy issues in a political forum, but we shouldn’t use threats of causing the U.S. to fail on its obligations to repay its debt as a cudgel,� Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, said after the meeting. Democrats were scathing in their criticism. “The American people would get better government out of Monkey Island at the local zoo than we’re giving them today,� said Rep. John Dingell of Michigan. The Republican National Committee announced it would


pay for personnel needed to reopen the World War II Memorial, a draw for aging veterans from around the country that is among the sites shuttered. In a statement, party chairman Reince Priebus challenged Democrats “to join with us in keeping this memorial open.� Democrats labeled that a stunt. “We’ve already been working on a plan to open the Memorial — and the entire government — after the GOP caused them to close,� said party spokesman Mo Elleithee. “It’s called a clean� spending bill. As it turned out, more than 125 World War II veterans from Mississippi and Iowa who were initially kept out of the memorial Tuesday were escorted to the site with the help of members of Congress.

Workers can only wonder WASHINGTON (AP) — The government shutdown has set federal workers on edge, leaving them to wonder how long it may be before they get paid again as lawmakers show no sign of ending the standstill. Workers were paid retroactively for time away from work after the last shutdown in 1995, though it’s not clear if they will be paid for furlough days this time around. The loss of a paycheck could be critical for lower-paid workers like janitors and maintenance staff, but even workers with savings were talking about trimming grocery budgets and putting off big purchases and spending on things like home renovations. Some 800,000 federal workers have been told not to report to work until Congress reaches a budget deal. Visitors to the nation’s federally funded parks and museums have been turned away, and government help ranging from farm subsidies to health care assistance have been snared in the stalemate. Richard Marcus, who lives in Silver Spring, Md., and has worked at the National Archives and Records Administration for 29 years, was spending his first full day at home Wednesday catching up on bills and paperwork. He said the mood of his co-workers on Tuesday as they shut down ranged from “resignation to anger.� “I think that’s probably the spectrum. We felt as though we’re caught up in this whole business as pawns,� he said. Marcus’ wife works, so they will be able to get by — but renovations to their home, including patching a leak in the bathroom, will be put on hold, he said.

Tennis teams begin sectional quest Angola, Fremont reach finals

Lakeland, East Noble make semis



WATERLOO — There were not many surprises from Wednesday’s semifinal duals at the DeKalb boys tennis sectional. Heavy favorite Angola moved on with a 5-0 victory over the host Barons. But DeKalb singles players Nate Helmkamp and Luke Buttermore did well in a losing cause in matches that lasted more than two hours. The Hornets (11-5) will be playing Steuben County rival Fremont (5-8) in the DeKalb Sectional final for the fifth straight year at 5 p.m. today. The Eagles defeated Prairie Heights 5-0 in a semifinal matchup of two inexperienced teams Wednesday. Fremont showed it is further along than the Panthers and only lost eight games in the dual. The Eagles have won five out of their last six duals after an 0-7 start, and were also third in the eight-team Knox Invitational on Sept. 21. “We’re having younger guys stepping up,” Eagles coach Brent Byler said. “We’ve worked hard in practice and the guys have been making adjustments on the court. It’s been fun watching them grow and mature. “Mason Kolberg is our only senior and he solidified our lineup when he came back from injury. I have not had anybody work as hard as he does. He wanted to play number one singles and he earned it.”

KENDALLVILLE — East Noble and Lakeland made quick work of first-round opponents on Wednesday to earn spots in tonight’s semifinals. “Every step is important, we came out here and took care of business,” said East Noble coach Nathan Toles. “We took another step in achieving our goal.” The Knights defeated Central Noble 5-0. Lakeland’s win was just as dominating, with the Lakers scoring a 5-0 victory over The Howe School. Lakeland advances to face Westview in one semifinal, while East Noble will go against West Noble. Both matches will begin at 5 p.m. at East Noble High School. The Knights claimed a 4-1 victory over West Noble in the regular season meeting between the squads. “Their lineup is back to like the first of the year when we saw them,” Toles explained. “If we play well, we can be playing Saturday for the championship.” Lakeland and Westview met during the regular season in Northeast Corner Conference play, with the Warriors winning 5-0. Lakeland’s Dalton Schmidt recorded a 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 1 singles over Howe’s Johnny Chan. Schmidt is 5-8 on the season. Also with singles wins for the Lakers were Austin Buonocore and Austin Hoffelder.



Lakeland’s Dalton Schmidt powers a return across the net to The Howe School’s Johnny Chan during a No. 1 singles match in the East Noble tennis sectional Wednesday in Kendallville. Schmidt helped Lakeland to a 5-0 win over Howe with a 6-0, 6-0 victory.

Cabrera’s health a concern

DETROIT (AP) — That sweet swing is still there. No matter how banged up Miguel Cabrera has been, he’s always a threat to hit the ball where nobody can catch it. It’s the rest of his duties that have looked more and more painful. Those jogs out of the batter’s box became progressively slower — and although Cabrera helped the Detroit Tigers win the AL Central for a third straight year, even they can’t be sure what to expect from their best hitter in the postseason. “He’s not 100 percent,” manager Jim Leyland said. “He’s been playing in a lot of pain. He’s a real tough guy. I think if anybody knew the pain he’s playing in, they probably wouldn’t believe it.” After winning the Triple Crown AP in 2012, Cabrera was even better Cincinnati Reds’ Joey Votto leans over the rail Pittsburgh Pirates in an NL wild-card playoff for much of this season.

“Marlon Byrd proved a fantastic addition,” first baseman Joey Votto said. “Kudos to the front office for coming up with that trade because he beat us up pretty good.” The Reds’ only significant change after last season was getting center fielder Shin-Soo Choo from Cleveland. The deal worked well — Choo led the majors in on-base percentage by a leadoff hitter. He got a one-year, $7,373,000 deal to avoid arbitration and will be a free agent. The Reds kept the rest of their starting lineup intact and got less than they needed.

Jimmie Johnson wins AAA 400; becomes all-time Sprint Cup win leader at Dover

New Goodyear tire to make its second appearance in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway This weekend’s Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway will mark the second appearance this season of Goodyear’s new multiple-compound racing tire. The tires were used on Labor Day weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway and drew praise from drivers and crew members. Goodyear, the exclusive supplier of tires for NASCAR’s top three series, is using technology that has been applied to passenger-car tires for years, and it combines one compound that offers traction and another for endurance. While the tire composition is similar, the tracks are much different. Atlanta’s asphalt is old, worn and abrasive, while the pavement at Kansas is nearly new and is much smoother. At Kansas, the challenge for Goodyear is to find a tire soft enough to wear, but hard enough to withstand the high speeds and heat generated by new pavement. Tire wear usually leads to side-by-side racing, which is a challenge on tracks

with new, smooth asphalt. As with the tires offered at Atlanta, the left-side tires at Kansas will be the same used in earlier races, with the multiple compound on the right-side tires. Development of the Kansas tire was done at a tire test back in July with drivers Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman doing the testing. Nationwide Series cars at Kansas will use the same tire compounds run at the track in April.

Hamlin honored by March of Dimes Denny Hamlin has had a rough year on the Sprint Cup circuit, but he had lots to celebrate after being honored as a March of Dimes “Champion For Babies” during a dinner last week in Washington, D.C. Hamlin and his sponsor FedEx have collaborated to run a special March of Dimes paint scheme on his No. 11 car during each of the past six seasons, and they’ve worked together to bring the March of Dimes message to NASCAR and its fan base. “It’s an honor to accept this award tonight, and to play a small role in raising the visibility of the great work done by the March of Dimes,” Hamlin said in his acceptance speech. “Their mission hits closer to home, as I became a first-time father earlier this year, and I’m grateful that with the help of FedEx, our team has been able to meet and host many families that have been positively impacted by this great organization.” Previous recipients of the award include golf’s Arnold Palmer, football’s Joe Namath and broadcasting’s Greg Gumbel. March of Dimes president Dr. Jennifer L. Howse said Hamlin is a worthy recipient of the honor. “Denny’s heartfelt and genuine desire to help families less fortunate than him always shines through,” she said. “He gives us more than his time.

And the five-time series champion extended his Chase-race win total to 23, more than double that of the next closest driver, Tony Stewart, who has 11 Chaserace wins, but is out of the running for the title this year because of a broken leg suffered in a sprint car race. Johnson’s crew chief, Chad Knaus, said it really is a matter of the cream rising to the top when Johnson drives to the head of the pack in Chase races like the one on Sunday at Dover. “The man’s got a lot of skills,” Knaus said in the winner’s interview on Sunday. “I think he’s able to pull out some things that are pretty spectacular. He’s able to dig deeper, pull out his cape, make things happen in winning moments of these races that other people cannot do. It’s pretty Jimmie Johnson became the all-time win spectacular.” leader at Dover with his eighth victory in At Dover, Johnson held off his teamSunday’s AAA 400. mate and pole-sitter Dale Earnhardt Jr. over the final 29 laps even though Earnhardt had four fresh tires to Johnson’s two. “I’ve seen a lot of great drivers; worked with a lot of great drivers,” Knaus said. “Knowing what we’ve got sitting behind the seat is always a little bit of confidence, knowing if you get close, if you make the right call at the right time, he’s going to be able to carry the ball. “Once again, I think Jimmie is probably the most underrated chamJohnson gives the fans a burnout after his record-breaking pion we have in this Dover victory. industry.

5-Hour Energy returns as sponsor of Bowyer’s No. 15 Toyota at MWR

Critics of NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup have complained for years that the 10-race, season-ending run to the championship leads to a lack of attention paid to the drivers who are not in the running for the title. But this year, like many others, when it comes to the final 10 races, the main reason the also-rans get shuffled out of the spotlight is because the cream of NASCAR’s crop — that group of drivers who have made the Chase — rises to the top. On Sunday at Dover International Speedway, the top 10 in the finishing order were all Chase contenders. At New Hampshire the week before, fifth-finishing Jamie McMurray became the only non-Chase driver in the first three races to score a top-five finish. And in the Chase opener at Chicagoland, the only non-Chase drivers in the top 10 were Brad Keselowski in seventh and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in eighth. And there’s the fact that non-Chase drivers rarely make it to Victory Lane in the final 10 races. In the 93 Chase races run since the format was adopted in 2004, only 15 have been won by drivers not in the Chase that year. Greg Biffle and Tony Stewart, who usually are in the Chase, have had the most success of non-Chase drivers, winning three races each in years they were not among the elite running for the title. Most weeks, the stepped-up performance of the championship contenders commands the most attention. At Dover International Speedway on Sunday, points leader Matt Kenseth finished seventh and had what would have been a good points day if not for the fact that the drivers ahead of him were all in the Chase. Jimmie Johnson won at Dover, leading the most laps and scoring maximum points in his eighth triumph there, which gave him the track’s all-time win leader record, which he had shared with Hall of Famers Richard Petty and Bobby Allison.


After weeks of bad news, including the booting of driver Martin Truex Jr. from the Chase for the Sprint Cup and the loss of sponsor NAPA, Michael Waltrip Racing finally got some good news. 5-Hour Energy, the primary sponsor of Clint Bowyer’s No. 15 Toyota at MWR, announced last week that it would return in 2014. There were some doubts about the company’s intentions in the wake of the penalties imposed by NASCAR on MWR for manipulating the results of the regularseason finale at Richmond in an attempt to get Truex in the Chase. But 5-Hour Energy said in a statement on its Facebook page that it was sticking with MWR and Bowyer. “While our original plan was to announce the status of our sponsorship at the end of the year, this timeframe left many concerned about their future. There are scores of passionate fans, numerous charitable organizations, and hundreds of hardworking MWR employees and their families who are directly impacted by 5-Hour Energy’s NASCAR sponsorship. After several internal discussions and meetings with MWR, we are prepared to announce our decision ahead of schedule. 5-Hour Energy will be back as a sponsor of MWR and Clint Bowyer for 2014.”

New restart rule benefits Peters in Smith’s 350

after the game. “Our club has been through a lot of things on and off the field. Our club has stuck together. We realize I guess now we still got some more work to go. We’ve got some improvements to make.” They’ve got to figure out what to do in the leadoff spot with Choo a free agent. Billy Hamilton made a September splash with his speed, but struggled to hit at Triple-A. The cleanup spot also is a big question. Ryan Ludwick tore cartilage in his right shoulder, returned in mid-August and batted only .240 with two homers and 12 RBIs. His fill-ins struggled. Votto was an enigma. The Reds’ highest-paid player led the NL in walks for the third straight year, but most of his numbers were down significantly. He played all 162 games and batted .305 — his second-lowest career total.

Timothy Peters won the Smith’s 350 at Las Vegas Speedway. The numbers all lined up for Timothy Peters in Saturday’s Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The driver of the No. 17 Toyota beat NASCAR’s king of restarts, Ron Hornaday Jr., on the race’s final restart to win the circuit’s 17th race of the season. It was the first win on a 1.5-mile track for both Peters and his Red Horse Racing team. Peters’ previous six victories came at either Daytona, a 2.5-mile track, or shorter venues like Nashville, Bristol, Indianapolis Raceway Park and Iowa Speedway, where he’s won twice. His win was made possible in part by NASCAR’s new restart rules that allow the second-place driver to take the lead before the start/finish line as long as the leader takes off first. “Thank goodness for the new rule change,” Peters said. “It played into our Points separating Laps led by favor tonight.

Fremont had straight-set doubles wins from junior Alberto Figueroa and athletic freshman Wade Regadanz at No. 1 and junior Drew Sullivan and sophomore Jeremy Seiler at No. 2. Sullivan and Seiler pulled off a surprise win over Fairfield in the first round at last week’s Northeast Corner Conference Tournament. Prairie Heights had one dual victory this fall. Angola earned a chance to play for its sixth straight sectional title behind the strength of its doubles teams and the play of No. 3 singles player Blake Trusty. Then it

had to battle to get the final two points. “Our goal coming in was to win 5-0 and I was pleasantly surprised,” Hornets coach Scott Hottell said. “Blake played a brilliant match, and doubles took care of business. “Give credit to DeKalb’s players at one and two singles. For Chris (Calvelage) and Cam (Hall), it was a combination of analyzing their strengths against their opponent’s weaknesses and adjusting their game plans. They were adaptable and patient.” Angola got the first point at No. 1 doubles with a straight-set win by senior Markus Arnold and junior Craig Nofziger. Trusty was second at No. 3 singles in defeating Parker Shilling 6-0, 6-1. Angola had an overpowering short spurt from senior Cody Nickols and freshman Jake Honer to separate from Cory Venderly and Zach Martin at No. 2 doubles and fought the Barons off some in

the second set to win 6-2, 6-2 to clinch the dual victory. No. 1 and 2 singles were more competitive. Hall defeated Helmkamp in a matchup of seniors at No. 1, 7-5, 6-4. The junior Calvelage rallied to beat the sophomore Buttermore 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. “Nate and Luke gave it their all. Luke went three sets under the lights. You can’t ask for more than that,” Barons coach Nick David said. “I tip my hat to Angola. But I wouldn’t change my guys for anyone. They won with class and lost with class. “We have a young squad. Our two singles guy Zach Martin broke his wrist. Helmkamp was sick and he was in and out of the lineup. But we did the best we could,” the coach continued. “If we put in the time in the offseason, the future will be good for DeKalb tennis. “The best thing is that no

one is satisfied. They’re hungry. Nate Helmkamp is our only senior. He set a solid foundation this year and we will run with it.” David said the DeKalb school administrators have approved of starting a tennis program at DeKalb Middle School starting with sixth graders. The high school varsity boys finished this season at 7-10.

Mature Indiana bucks are different than other deer


Birthday buck Andrew Lusk, 9, got a 10-point buck on opening day of deer season for youth, Sept. 28, which also happened to be his birthday. He shot the deer with a rifle he got the day before. The deer was taken from a woods behind his grandfather’s house of C.R. 200N in rural Steuben County at 7:45 a.m. during a hunt with his grandfather.

The portion of Indiana’s deer season that starts three days after the October first opener and ends three days before Halloween is the toughest time to kill a mature buck. There are always exceptions to this and every hunting rule, but after OUTDOORS taking into WITH DON consideration all of the Don Mulligan variables in deer behavior, hunter behavior and the environment, it is hard to dispute. I define a mature buck in Indiana as any male deer that is 4.5 years old or older, regardless of antler size. The first three days of regular hunting season are excluded because on some occasions old bucks get into a summer eating habit during daylight hours that a hunter stumbles into. The first days of hunting season provide the hunter the element of surprise. After a couple days of people being sneaky in the woods, however, old bucks adjust to only moving at night or almost not at all. Some mature bucks move so little in the month of October their existence becomes the stuff of legends and myths. Without trail cameras, some deer would never be seen. Some even elude detection by trail cameras. On a friend’s 500-acre Indiana lease, he and his partners rotate dozens of cameras all year. Every year the cameras show the same pattern. Regardless of whether they are placed near food, funnels, bedding or escape routes, they only show does and young bucks until around Halloween. Then, like someone turned on a switch, older, bigger bucks start appearing on camera. Cameras catch them only at night in the beginning, then eventually during daylight hours. Because it was recently revealed that Indiana has one of the highest hunter-densities among whitetail states, mature deer here sometimes live their entire adult life nocturnally, only moving


This trail cam picture is the only sighting of this Indiana monarch. He was never seen again on camera or in person by several hunters who monitor a large southern Indiana farm.

in daylight when pushed out of their bed by dogs, coyotes or humans. My friends and I have considered the possibility that old bucks only appear briefly in some places because those spots are where they only breed then leave, but other farms, including mine, show the same pattern. What makes more sense, and is supported by the evidence, is that the older bucks have been there all along. They just don’t move in many of Indiana’s hard-hunted counties. Sometimes no mature bucks are sighted because they simply don’t exist, but often, mature bucks may only move a few feet every day until conditions are perfect. On more than one occasion I have sat over a thick bedding area from dark until dark and caught a glimpse of a mature buck only standing to stretch, then laying back down. This can and does go on for weeks in October in some places. For an old buck, perfect conditions mean a doe is ready to breed and is very close by. But even then, some won’t chase, and it is likely some bucks get old by not breeding at all. From an evolutionary standpoint, it makes sense that some male deer would figure out chasing does is the most dangerous thing they do (except for perhaps crossing a highway), and refrain from the exercise. All this could be discouraging to the

majority of Indiana hunters who have told officials they want to see a big buck. “Big,” however, is in the eye of the beholder and our high hunter density makes old bucks more vulnerable. When most hunters talk about a “big” buck they are referring to its antler size. Antlers vary greatly depending on genetics, nutrition and age, but it is probably safe to say any Indiana buck that reaches four-years-old will be sporting enough bone to satisfy anyone’s definition of a trophy. In fact, lots of 3-yearold deer in Indiana will grow at least 130-inches of antler. That is a long way from Boone and Crockett dimensions, but qualifies for most hunters as a trophy. Some older, even bigger Indiana bucks are likely killed every year simply because they were forced to move by hunter activity. Sometimes all an old buck needs is that initial nudge to start moving. Once he is on his feet in November or December, some old bucks continue their new routine, which includes some daylight movement. Hunt wise and hard this year and remember: just because there are no sightings of mature bucks where you hunt, it doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t there.

Marathon suspect wants prison restrictions lifted BOSTON (AP) — Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked a judge Wednesday to lift restrictions placed on him in prison, arguing that the conditions are overly harsh, have left him nearly totally isolated and are impairing their ability to defend him. Tsarnaev’s lawyers said in court documents that he has been confined to his cell except for visits from them and “very limited access” to a small outdoor enclosure. Tsarnaev, 20, is accused of building and planting bombs near the finish line of the April 15 marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 260. Authorities say he and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, ethnic Chechens from Russia who emigrated to the United States as children, planned and carried out the attack to retaliate against the United States for its involvement in Muslim countries.


In this aerial photo, emergency workers respond to a crash involving a passenger bus and a tractortrailer near Dandridge, Tenn., on Wednesday. A spokeswoman for Tennessee’s Safety Department said

the bus was traveling in northeast Tennessee when it crossed the median and struck the other two vehicles. The tractor-trailer caught fire and the bus overturned.

Authorities: 8 killed in church bus crash DANDRIDGE, Tenn. (AP) — A bus taking a church group home to North Carolina blew a tire, veered across a highway median and crashed into a sport utility vehicle and tractor-trailer Wednesday in a fiery wreck that killed eight people, authorities said. Fourteen other people were hurt in the accident in northeastern Tennessee, including eight who were in critical condition. The bus was carrying members of the Front Street Baptist Church in Statesville, N.C., which is about 140 miles east of the crash site. The group of seniors, known as Young at Heart, had been to the 17th annual Fall Jubilee in Gatlinburg, Tenn., a three-day event

featuring gospel singers and speakers. Inside the Statesville church, people were crying and hugging each other. One woman whispered “It’s going to be all right” while hugging another woman. A service was scheduled for Wednesday night. George Stadfeld, who has been a member of the church for eight years, said he knew everyone on the bus. “We’re all shaken,” he said. “As bad as it is, they’re all Christians and I know where they’re at. I’ll join them later.” The Fall Jubilee website described the gathering as “three days of singing, laughing and preaching” for “mature and senior believers.” After the accident, a

$1 million bail for suspect in airport bomb threat JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A judge set bail at $1 million Wednesday for a man accused of telling security screeners at the Jacksonville International Airport he had a bomb in his backpack, prompting the evacuation of the airport. Authorities did not find any explosives. Zeljko Causevic, 39, remained silent during his brief hearing before Duval County Court Judge Russell

Healey on charges of making a false report about planting a bomb and possessing a hoax bomb. According to a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office arrest report, Causevic, a U.S. citizen who is originally from Bosnia, approached a Transportation Security Administration agent Tuesday, saying he had a device in his camouflage backpack that was “supposed to be a bomb, but it’s not.”

New sanctions likely despite thaw in U.S.-Iran ties

Trail closed after rock slide DENVER (AP) — A popular Colorado trail where a rock slide killed five members of the same family will remain closed at least until spring, the U.S. Forest Service said Wednesday, and one local official believes the closure should be permanent. Forest Service experts will have to inspect the site to see if it is feasible and safe to rebuild the trail after it was buried by boulders on Monday, said John Peterson, deputy supervisor for the San Isabel National Forest, which manages the trail. That inspection won’t happen until after the coming winter, he said. Chaffee County Undersheriff John Spezze said the trail should be closed permanently, calling it a “public safety hazard.” Spezze said geologists from Climax Molybdenum, a Colorado mining operation, went to the site and thought it was too dangerous to reopen. What triggered the slide is still under investigation. The slide killed a couple from the nearby town of Buena Vista, one of their daughters and two of their nephews from Missouri. Another daughter survived with a broken leg after her father shielded her.

banner was posted on top of the website saying, “Our thoughts are with our friends at Front Street Baptist Church in their tragic loss. … all the Jubilee team have you in our prayers.” Dionne Stutts, wife of Front Street Baptist senior pastor Tim Stutts, said her husband and another pastor from the church were en route to the wreck. “They had been there and they were on their way home today,” she said. “We are devastated and just ask for the people to be praying.” Authorities said the chartered bus crossed the median about 2 p.m., clipped the oncoming SUV and slammed into the tractortrailer, which burst into flames.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. lawmakers from both parties have expressed a willingness to give President Barack Obama’s outreach to Iran a chance to end to Tehran’s nuclear standoff with the West, but at the same time they are crafting tough new U.S. economic sanctions to further isolate the Islamic republic. Obama’s phone call last week to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was a groundbreaking conversation. It was the first contact in more than 30 years between the leaders of the two countries and an about-face from when Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, included Iran in his “axis of evil” with North Korea and Iraq. Obama wants Rouhani to prove that he’s willing to curtail some of his country’s uranium enrichment activity,

which many believe is being used to give Iran nuclear weapons capability. Iran claims its nuclear program is solely for peaceful purposes. Rouhani said Wednesday in Tehran that Iran is open to discussing “details” of its nuclear activities to reach a deal with world powers, but its right to enrich uranium “is not negotiable” but that “we must enter into talks to see what would the other side propose to us about the details.” The U.S. engagement with Iran, meanwhile, is straining relations with Israel, a key American ally. Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu said in a speech at the United Nations Tuesday that the new Iranian president was conducting a “charm offensive.” Iran and Israel see each other as arch enemies.

Husband’s anxiety pushing wife away DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my best friend, “Blake,” for two years. A year ago he started having panic attacks, so I made an appointment for him with his doctor. After checking him for everything, including heart failure, the doctor diagnosed him with anxiety. Since his diagnosis, Blake is scared to leave the house. I have been working two jobs to make ends meet because he says he “can’t work.” This has taken a toll on our marriage. We have three kids and a lot of bills. Blake is on medication and has tried many different ones, but they aren’t working. All he talks about is his anxiety and every little ache or pain. He thinks he’s going to have a heart attack. I am fed up with it, while he says I just “don’t understand anxiety.” Sometimes I think he’s making his anxiety worse.




DEAR ABBY: We have

a housecleaner once a month. Last month, I offered her some grapefruit from our tree and she took six. This month, she helped herself to all of the fruit that was left on the tree! She didn’t ask permission, and she didn’t tell me she had done it. I happened to see her put it into her car. I consider this to be stealing, but my husband does not. —“ANITA” DEAR “ANITA”: The woman may have assumed you wouldn’t mind if she took the fruit because you had offered it to her the month before. Rather than call this stealing, I would call it a misunderstanding. Clear it up by telling your housecleaner that you want nothing removed from your premises. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Don’t put off talking to teens about sex longer to have sex — and they are more likely to use birth control when they do. Whether to have sex outside of marriage is a personal question, and I’m not going to weigh in on that. But it is important that you state what ASK your own DOCTOR K. views are regarding at what point a relationDr. Anthony in ship sex is Komaroff appropriate. At the same time, don’t insist that your child share your views. My colleagues who specialize in adolescent medicine tell me that teens often are naturally

rebellious and resist attempts to tell them what to do. It is very important to teach your child how to say no firmly. Coach your daughter to say “no” while looking her partner in the face. Again, it’s one thing to talk to your daughter about how to say “no,” and it’s another to tell her when. I wouldn’t describe all of the sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in detail. That can come across as scare-mongering and cause some kids to tune out. But I would list all of the STDs: Most kids don’t realize how many there are. By the same token, I wouldn’t stress that some of them, if unrecognized and untreated, can be fatal. I would emphasize that some of them can make it hard or impossible for a woman to bear children.

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m the parent of a teenage girl. I know it’s time to talk to her about sex, and I’d appreciate any advice. DEAR READER: Many parents feel anxious or uncomfortable talking with their children about sex. But remember that if you don’t, somebody else will. Teens get lots of information (and misinformation) about sex from their friends, the Internet, television, magazines, books and movies. It’s up to you to make your child understand what it really means to have sex, both physically and emotionally. Don’t worry that you will be “putting ideas” into your teen’s head. Many parents I’ve talked to are concerned that having the conversation will encourage their kids to try it. In fact, teens who talk openly with their parents usually wait

I don’t know what to believe or what to do. Any suggestions? — STRESSED DEAR STRESSED: Yes, I do have one. Your husband should be seen by a licensed mental health professional (psychologist) who DEAR works with a ABBY psychiatrist. Please urge your husband Jeanne Phillips to do this because the aches, pains and anxiety he’s experiencing may seem like they’re all in his head to you, but they’re real to him. It could save your marriage.

I would describe the facts about birth control. The points I’d be sure to make are that no birth control is 100 percent effective, and that many types of birth control will not protect against STDs. The only way to be entirely safe is not to have sex. Finally, I’d explain that sexually active females need to have a pelvic exam every year. Offer to take her to a gynecologist or pediatrician if and when she decides to have sex. Most important, be there for your teenager. Listen to her questions and try to answer every one. Let her know that whatever choices she makes, she will always have your love and support. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is
