Conrad shared Christ over long career GOOD MORNING US Forces hit extremists behind East Africa attacks MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — In a stealthy seaside assault in Somalia and in a raid in Libya’s capital, U.S. military forces on Saturday struck out against Islamic extremists who have carried out terrorist attacks in East Africa, snatching a man allegedly involved in the bombings of U.S. embassies 15 years ago but missing a man linked to last month’s attack on a Nairobi shopping mall. A U.S. Navy SEAL team slipped ashore near a southern Somalia town before the al-Qaida-linked militants rose for dawn prayers, U.S. and Somali officials told The Associated Press. The raid on a house in the town of Barawe targeted a specific al-Qaida suspect related to the mall attack, but the operation did not get its target, one current and one former U.S. military official told AP. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the raid publicly. Within hours of the Somalia attack, relatives of a Libyan al-Qaida leader wanted for the 1998 bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania said he was kidnapped outside his house Saturday in Tripoli, Libya. A U.S. official said it was American forces who captured Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, known by his alias Anas al-Libi, who has been wanted by the U.S. for more than a decade. The U.S. official says there have been no U.S. casualties in the Libya operation. The official was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.

AUBURN — After 41 years with Youth For Christ, Ken Conrad knows the secret for keeping young. “I’ve discovered that, if you want to stay young, you hang around teenagers,” Conrad said. “If you want to feel old, you try to keep up with them.” Conrad retired Tuesday after 41 years with Youth For Christ, the last 34 of them working out of its Auburn office. For most of that time, the organization has served DeKalb, Steuben, Noble and

LaGrange counties, he said. Conrad spent his first two years with YFC in its Van Wert, Ohio, office. He then moved to Dayton, Ohio, where he served two years as the associate director before becoming executive director there. After three years as Dayton’s executive director, Conrad moved to Kendallville and took a job with the northeast Indiana YFC office in Auburn. He became its associate director. At that time, the office served DeKalb, Noble and Steuben counties, Conrad said. LaGrange merged with them in the early

1980s because it made more sense than being linked to Elkhart County as the focus in that area shifted toward South Bend. About a decade ago, Conrad Conrad became executive director of the northeast Indiana YFC location. Some things are very different than when Conrad started, but others remain the same. “Students have changed. The

Apple Festival: Mmmmmm good Thousands flock to Kendallville for annual event BY MATT GETTS

KENDALLVILLE — Two distinct groups of people came Saturday to the Apple Festival of Kendallville: those who were in line for food, and those who were talking about the food. Early morning rain couldn’t dampen the crowd, the enthusiasm or the eats Saturday, as thousands packed the Noble County

Fairground by noon time to experience life — including the culinary part of it — in the 1800s. The craft areas were filled. So was the primitive area. The people were getting full, too, with the various staples of Apple Festival, from tenderloins to apple dumplings to boneless chicken wings with apple barbecue sauce. The festival continues today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. Fairgrounds parking costs $3. However, festival organizers encourage visitors to park free at East Noble High School and No-Sag on Allen Chapel Road and take a free shuttle bus service between the

parking lots, the fairgrounds and the downtown business district. All pioneer-themed festival activities are taking place at the fairgrounds this year. Saturday, Peggy Stolte of Albion was in one of the 4-H barns, selling her hand-crafted decorative dish towels from her booth. “It’s been really good,” she said. “We’ve done well this morning. So far, the crowds have been bigger than last year.” Crowds were big and hungry. “We can’t keep up right now,” said Dr. Alan Roush of the Kendallville Rotary Club, which was selling boneless chicken SEE FESTIVAL, PAGE A6

WASHINGTON (AP) — A rare flash of bipartisanship Saturday served as a cruel tease to those hoping Congress is moving toward reopening the government and averting an unprecedented default on the federal debt in less than two weeks. Only two days after House Speaker John Boehner raised hopes by telling colleagues he won’t let the nation go into default, key members of both parties conceded that no one has presented a plausible plan for avoiding it. Instead, they continued to bicker and to ponder the chasm between two warring parties, each of which seems convinced it’s on the winning side morally and politically. There was, however, relief Saturday for thousands of furloughed Pentagon workers and the promise of back pay for all federal workers who have been forced off the job. The Pentagon on Saturday ordered at least 90 percent of its roughly 350,000 furloughed civilian employees back to work, significantly reducing the number of sidelined federal workers. In all, about 800,000 federal workers had been furloughed. Defense Department said the recall is based on a law passed SEE BACK PAY, PAGE A6

Eberhardt earns state urban forest honor BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — Art Eberhardt likes birds and music and people. In tribute to these profound yet simple pleasures, Eberhardt has given his community trees. His years of caring have not gone unnoticed, and recently the Indiana Urban Forest Council chose Eberhardt as the recipient of its 2013 Outstanding Individual Award. Eberhardt has served around 15 years on the Angola Tree Board and more than 40 years on the McClue Nature Reserve Board and ACRES Land Trust board of directors. He also is on the board for the Stockbridge

Audobon Society. He and his late wife, Marion, helped organize the annual Adopt-A-Tree Festival at Wing Haven Nature Preserve, where thousands of people have spent time with the Eberhardt family — loving nature and learning what planting one small tree every year can mean over a lifetime. Possibly the crowning event in Eberhardt’s selfless dedication to Mother Nature was his choice to make a large donation for the purchase of the last parcel of untouched forest in the Angola city limits. It is called Marion’s Woods and protected by ACRES Land Trust. SEE EBERHARDT, PAGE A6


Art Eberhardt gave a large donation to make the purchase of Marion’s Woods off Calvary Lane possible. The ACRES Land Trust Preserve opened this year.





Indiana • Rare birth defect survivor dies HOBART, Ind. (AP) — A former Indiana boy who overcame the odds to survive a rare congenital defect in which he was born with his heart outside his chest has died at age 13. When Tyler Jacob Todd was born in August 2000, doctors gave him less than a 1 percent chance of survival. But he survived a four-hour procedure in which surgeons

placed his heart back inside his chest. The Times of Munster reports Tyler died unexpectedly Thursday at his family’s home in Memphis, Tenn., where his family had moved two years ago from Hobart, Ind. His great-aunt, Maryanna Mooney, says despite a lifetime of surgeries Tyler was able to enjoy the joys of being a normal boy during the past four years and he’d thrived on NASCAR racing.

State spends millions on AP tests most fail INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana is pumping millions of dollars into Advanced Placement tests for high school students despite a drop in the percentage of students who pass the exams. More than a third of Indiana graduates took AP exams in 2012, up from about 18 percent in 2007. But only about 45 percent passed — well below the national average of 60 percent passing and a sharp drop from 2002, when 55 percent passed. “More kids are going up to bat, but more kids are swinging and missing,” Derek Redelman, vice president for education and workforce development policy at the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, told

Indiana includes AP scores in how it rates its high schools, though that system could change as part of a review of the state’s embattled A-F school grading system. Indiana will spend $2.8 million this year to cover the $81 fee the College Board charges for each exam. That amount will rise to $3.3 million in 2014. The money will pay for every exam in math and science and for tests in any of the 34 subjects taken by students on the free or reduced lunch program. Senate Appropriations Chairman Luke Kenley,

Car-deer collisions declining

R-Noblesville, said the increased funding is designed to boost participation in the AP program. But Janet Boyle of the University of Indianapolis’ Center of Excellence in Leadership of Learning said the additional funding might not boost scores. Boyle said the increase in the number of AP offerings has created more class space to be filled. That’s often meant that students who aren’t academically qualified for college-level classes are placed in AP courses. Those students are still required to take the AP test at the end of the year even if they don’t expect to score a passing grade of 3 or above. “There are many teachers who say they can look at their classrooms and tell you right away who is going to get a 1 or 2,” Boyle said.

FORT WAYNE (AP) — Collisions between automobiles and deer are on the decline in Indiana, a trend experts say could be driven by changes in hunting rules and by motorists’ growing diligence in avoiding deer. Indiana had 15,205 deer-related collisions in 2011, the most recent year for which data tare available. That’s down from just less than 16,000 collisions in 2010 and more than 16,800 in 2009, according to the Criminal Justice Institute. State Farm Insurance’s annual survey of car-deer collisions shows that the likelihood of such a collision declined 23 percent in Indiana between 2011-12 and 2012-13. The company’s survey, released last month, examined deer-vehicle crash claims filed by State Farm drivers and extrapolated those numbers. Indiana ranked 27th in the nation in last year’s survey, but it now ranks 33rd, with drivers having a 1-in-218 chance of hitting a deer, the survey found. “It’s hard to speculate, but we do think part of it is raised awareness,” State Farm spokeswoman Missy Dundov said.

Albion auto parts plant adding jobs ALBION — An Albion-based company will add 24 new jobs next year, thanks to a new contract. Busche has been awarded a contract from Z.F. Industries out of Marysville, Mich., for the machining of Chrysler companion flanges for the Chrysler 300M, Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger programs. The Z.F. purchase order provides tooling for more than 400,000 components annually from Busche. The new program will be run on existing equipment at Busche‘s Plant 8 facility in Albion. Pre-production approval is scheduled for January 2014 with production ramping up in July of 2014. “The program will require production on all three shifts with eight operators per shift, creating a total of 24 jobs,� said Busche estimating manager Art Givens.

Campaign pays for new roof over Floral Hall 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. 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.

Golf course to become ‘park-like’ setting AUBURN — Ownership changes at Bridgewater Golf Club will result in a “park-like setting,� open to the public, for the west course formerly known as Greenhurst. Mark and Abby Millett of Auburn and former Auburn residents Rick and Vicki James have purchased the former Greenhurst course, Mark Millett said Thursday. “We just want to conserve it. Our plans are not solidified yet,� Mark Millett said. “Our present intent is to create a park-like setting for the future enjoyment of the community.� The Greenhurst course opened in the 1920s and was purchased by Bridgewater several years ago. It will close as a golf course Oct. 31 and will not reopen next year. Keith Busse and Walt Fuller will continue as the two remaining owners of the Bridgewater East Course, which opened in 1998. Busse and Fuller are planning improvements to the east course.

Shutdown doesn’t stop poultry inspections The partial federal government shutdown is having mixed impact across northeast Indiana. Most notable is the shutdown of local field offices with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. However, other government functions are running unabated by the shutdown that started at midnight Tuesday, sending hundreds of thousands of federal workers home across the country. Nine USDA inspectors work at Miller Poultry in Orland, eight on the day shift and one on second shift. They are an essential factor in the poultry operation, said director of operations Kevin Diehl, and they will continue to report to work as usual.

Spurring innovation BY JOEL ELLIOTT

As it reached the end of its first year of existence, the director of a business consulting center at Trine University in Angola pointed to a number of profitable ventures it had undertaken, including helping to bring a Michigan-based business into Indiana. Innovation One focuses largely on engineering, technology and marketing. The center seeks to promote innovation and collaboration among local businesses and also to attract new businesses from outside the state. Now that construction has been completed on an $8-million, 25,000-square-foot building to house its laboratories, lasers, classrooms and foundry on the Trine University campus, director Thomas DeAgostino hopes to see more successful projects. “I’ve been doing things without really having the facilities,� he said while giving a tour of the new building. “But now, we are moving in and making progress and going forward with a lot of momentum.� One of the biggest successes DeAgostino highlights is the partnership between a Michigan-based laser coating removal systems company called Surclean. Surclean is coming to Indiana in large part because of the agreement with the center.

“This shower has been great. I was kidding people. I would almost want to take a shower five times a day.’ Being independent, being able to do things without asking for help, there’s no other feeling like it.� Terry Haffner Fort Wayne artist born without arms and with very small legs. Innovation One designed an automated shower specifically for him.

• Although details are not finalized, company CEO Susan Sprentall said one of the elements of the deal is for Surclean to install an advanced laser laboratory in Innovation One’s facility. Sprentall plans to begin setting up the laboratory by Nov. 1. While it is possible that Surclean could have come to Indiana without it, the partnership with Trine University “was a big factorâ€? in her decision, Sprentall said. Sprentall said that while the lab will work on operations specific to Surclean, it also will offer assistance to other area companies, such as access to laser cutting, laser welding and laser cladding. Other projects and collaborations with which Innovation One has been involved include producing

Huntertown plant growing, adding jobs FROM STAFF REPORTS

HUNTERTOWN — A Huntertown business founded in 1989 is expanding to keep up with the growing demand for the machinery and production systems it designs and builds for manufacturers. Adaptive Technologies Inc., the parent of related companies Adaptek Systems, API Alliance, Northern Apex and Automated Laser, has begun construction on a third building in the Lima Plank Industrial Park. The companies together employ about 80 people and the expansion will probably add another eight or 10 jobs, said Joseph DePrisco, the founder and president of the business. The manufacturing sector has shown surprising strength in the recovery from the Great Recession, and Adaptek and its complementary companies are reaping the benefits of that comeback. That doesn’t mean, however, that manufacturers are returning to “business as usual.� They’re looking for more efficient, more cost-effective ways to do business, and that is Adaptek’s niche. “Our main focus is to work with manufacturers on ways to make them more productive,� said DePrisco, a 1977 Purdue University engineering graduate. “We

Trine’s program moves into new facility

work with manufacturers to overcome obstacles in their production.� The obstacle may be outdated equipment and systems, or it could be a way of doing things that is labor intensive. Robotic systems designed by Adaptek may allow a manufacturer to do the same work or even increase output with fewer workers. The robotic systems also can complete tasks with a level of precision that ordinary humans could not duplicate, DePrisco said. “We can get labor out of it to make it more adaptive.� As the economy recovers, the use of more highly automated systems is allowing some companies to bring work back to the United States that had been outsourced to China and other countries, and still keep their labor costs down, he said. Adaptek’s customers come from all over the United States, but particularly from the eastern half of the country. It hasn’t had to look for business abroad because there is plenty of demand here, DePrisco noted. While some companies that do the kind of work Adaptek does specialize in systems and equipment for particular industries, Adaptek doesn’t. “We don’t chase auto. We don’t chase medical,� he said.

scale models of heavy mining machinery for Deister Machine Co. in Fort Wayne. Deister builds large aggregate shakers that are extremely heavy. Wes Stinson, a project engineer, needed small scale models of the machines to take to trade shows, but he found that building the models exactly to scale was problematic. He turned to Innovation One. “Lugging around a 50,000pound machine isn’t too easy,� he said. “Innovation One provided the expertise to make sure we were actually getting what we wanted. For what we were doing, it was pretty valuable.� The center worked with Angola-based Vestil Manufacturing Corp. to improve the ergonomics of its lift mechanisms. Vestil produces materials-handling equipment such as loading

dock equipment, packaging equipment, drum handing equipment and carts and dollies. DeAgostino said the research results that came out of Innovation One not only helped improve the ergonomics of Vestil’s lift machines, but also Vestil can use this data to market its products. But all of Innovation One’s projects are not on such a large scale. One of the more widely publicized projects was the design and construction of an ergonomic shower for Terry Haffner, a Fort Wayne artist who was born without arms and with very small legs. Haffner uses prosthetic arms to paint and to drive a modified van, but struggled with the mechanics of showering without assistance. Engineers at Innovation One brought Haffner in to have his body measured, both its proportions but also its range of motion in order to design an automated shower specifically for him. It was the first time in his life that Haffner, in his 60s, was able to bathe unassisted. “This shower has been great,� Haffner said. “I was kidding people. I said, ‘I would almost want to take a shower five times a day.’ Being independent, being able to do things without asking for help, there’s no other feeling like it.�

Serving with a smile BY OCTAVIA LEHMAN

AUBURN — For more than five decades, Barbara Herendeen dished out meals to guests in northeast Indiana. She served customers for 18 years at Richards Restaurant in Auburn. She spent seven years at Ambrosia Restaurant in Auburn before she retired in 2004. In total, Herendeen spent nearly 53 years as a waitress. Herendeen died Aug. 13, at the age of 83. She was born July 17, 1930, to Harry and Helen (Furnish) Laux. “Grandma was never shy with a smile,” said her granddaughter, Rachel Bennett Steury. Herendeen got her start working in a restaurant in 1951 at Renner’s in Auburn, on the site of today’s Northway Inn. Steury said Herendeen liked her work. “It takes a special kind of person to be a waitress for 53 years,” she said. Herendeen worked at Ambrosia until the age of 73. “She could run circles around the younger staff,” Steury said. Her earnings went from 65 cents an hour in 1951 to $2.25 an hour in 2004. She told Steury, “You’ll never be rich, but you’ll never be broke.” Herendeen was proud of the fact that she waited tables for 19 years before she had to carry a tray, always balancing plates up and down her arms, according to Steury. As child when Steury stayed at her grandmother’s home, she remembers waking up early — very early. “We dreaded the 4 a.m. alarm when she rustled us out of bed to drop us off at great-grandma’s before heading in for the breakfast rush,” Steury said. A longtime member of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Auburn, Herendeen would go out to lunch at Richards Restau-

Evelyn married Edward Olszewski in May of 1949 in Detroit and he passed away November 21, 1969. She then married Clarence Nagle on January 21, 1972, in Detroit and he passed away July 28, 2000. Surviving is a daughter and son-in-law, Lori A and Sam Stokes of Auburn; stepchildren, Frank Nagler and his wife, Barbara, of Michigan and Elizabeth Betzig, also of Michigan; three grandchildren, Benjamin Stokes, Austin Stokes and Cameron Stokes; six step-grandchildren, Evan Betzig, Sarah Betzig, Julia Betzig, Sean Nagler, Travis Nagler and Stacy Nagler; four siblings, Arnold Rocholl and his wife, Anne, of Minnesota, Harold Rocholl of Plymouth, Mich., Eleanor Christie of Troy, Mich., and Kathie Tenney and her husband, Jesse, of

rant on Sundays with ladies from the church. “She always had a strong relationship with her God,” Steury said. On Jan. 15, 1994, she married Walter Herendeen. Both had worked in Grabill in their younger years, but they eventually parted ways and married others. Walter Herendeen lost his second wife, and Barbara lost a husband, Jean Martin to cancer. After they reconnected, Walter told her, “You either marry me or forget me.” In January, the couple would have been married 19 years. “We got along real good,” Walter Herendeen said. “We were able to do what we both loved to do. “She got along with everybody,” he added. Barbara Herendeen enjoyed playing bingo on Friday nights. Thursday

JERUSALEM (AP) — A 9-year-old Jewish girl was seriously injured in a suspected Palestinian militant attack while playing outside her home Saturday in a settlement in the West Bank, Israeli police said. Initial reports indicated the attack was carried out by a sniper but police said they were investigating all options, including the

has not yet given specifics on what it would offer in exchange for possible lifting of Western sanctions when nuclear talks with world powers resume later this month in Geneva. Zarif also disputed Obama’s claim in an Associated Press interview that Iran was more than year from reaching the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. Zarif repeated Iran’s claims that it does not seek nuclear arms, and urged the U.S. and its allies not to allow Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to “blackmail the world” and block potential progress in nuclear talks. Netanyahu has said Iran could reach the ability to make a nuclear warhead on an even shorter timeframe than suggested by Obama. “We can’t let him determine the agenda of the talks … Iran won’t develop a weapon,” Zarif said on a popular talk show on Iranian state TV. “Not six months. Not six years and not 60 years because it doesn’t seek

one. Netanyahu has been seeking to deceive the world by his lies.” The diplomatic outreach to Washington has critical backing from Khamenei, who decides all major policies. But Rouhani must also be careful not to anger hard-line forces, including the powerful Revolutionary Guard, that worry the new president went too far by accepting a phone call from Obama. The 15-minute conversation was the highest-level direct connect between the two countries since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Khamenei, whose speech was broadcast on state TV, also said the U.S. was “untrustworthy.” He previously has said he’s not opposed to direct talks with the U.S. to resolve Iran’s nuclear standoff with the West but is not optimistic. “We support the government’s diplomatic moves including the New York trip because we have faith (in them),” Khamenei told commanders.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s top leader hinted Saturday that he disapproved of the phone call between Presidents Hassan Rouhani and Barack Obama during the Iranian leader’s trip to New York last month, but he reiterated his crucial support for the president’s policy of outreach to the West. The comments by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reflect the difficulties facing Iran’s leadership to pursue groundbreaking outreach to Washington without risking a major backlash from hard-line groups uneasy about the pace of the contacts. In separate remarks, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the exchanges with Washington already have paid dividends by opening opportunities to negotiate a “win-win” nuclear deal that would allow Tehran to maintain its uranium enrichment but provide greater assurances the program remain peaceful.

EBERHARDT: Made large donation for land purchase FROM PAGE A1


Miss Indiana Terrin Thomas, center, of Auburn joined the cast of Raise a Ruckus Saturday during the Apple Festival of Kendallville at the Noble County Fairgrounds. Today, former Miss America Katie Stam of Indiana is scheduled to perform with the cast.

wings. “It’s been steady.” The festival draws people from throughout the area and beyond. Jeff and Jessica Schmitz came to Kendallville from their home in Lapeer, Mich., to visit relatives and the Apple Festival. They have attended the festival for the last four or five years. Food was the big item on their agenda as they unloaded their children from their van. “Tenderloins,” Jeff Schmitz said when asked what brought him Saturday. “I want an apple dumpling this year,” Jessica Schmitz said. There’s more than food to draw people in, of course. Christine Brand of Waterloo had a purchase in hand in one of the craft

barns. It wasn’t why she came to the festival, but she couldn’t pass up the deal. “I came for a fire poker,” she said, adding that she hadn’t made it to the primitive area to pick one up yet. “The originality of all the different crafts they come up with” was the big draw for her. “There’s always something new.” The children’s area was also a hit, especially for East Noble High School graduates Corey and Leslie Spencer, who now live in Fishers. They were watching one of their children go through a hay bale maze. “It’s phenomenal,” Corey Spencer said of the festival. “There’s something for everyone. “We come every year,” he added. “It’s a family

tradition.” A tradition that was put on hold when they lived in California for six years. “This is the one weekend we missed the most,” Leslie Spencer said. Saturday’s opening day seemed a win-win for philanthropic groups selling food to raise funds, for vendors hoping to turn a profit and for those seeking a family-friendly atmosphere to enjoy and unique, period goodies to bring home. “My kids enjoy this,” Jessica Schmitz said. “It’s a pleasant atmosphere.” Stolte even developed a strategy for getting some of the delicious food offered annually. She has workers who take turns manning her booth, so everyone gets a chance to eat.

CONRAD: Despite technology, teens still lonely FROM PAGE A1

needs really haven’t,” he said. What’s happening is that students are experiencing pressures from outside influences earlier, Conrad said. What used to be problems of teens post-puberty now are issues for pre-pubescent kids. Society exposes children to those pressures earlier than it used to, Conrad said. A huge impact comes from the variety of media influences children now face, from cable TV to the Internet and all its various services. The Web has its advantages in terms of getting the word out about events, Conrad said, adding, “That’s really changed the communication with students and about programming.” But, in the midst of a variety of communications, Conrad sees more kids who are lonely. Their home bases are disintegrating because of pressures on families or parents. The result is kids going solo on things where they need guidance and caring, Conrad said. “They’re just feeling like they have to do life on their own in too many occasions,” he said. He also sees more angry students, whether from a build-up of pressures or a mountain of hurts. “Students really carry a lot of emotional baggage,” he said. What makes the difference to kids is the same thing that always has, Conrad said: the caring presence of an adult. “You see the difference that coaches and teachers who get involved in kids’ lives can make,” he said. The keys are for adults to be available to young people and to actually listen to what they have to say, Conrad said, adding, “That helps an awful lot.” Youth For Christ takes

the approach of sharing the transformative life and love of Jesus with students, Conrad said. It’s a bigger challenge now, because most students now can’t identify a church they feel a connection to, unlike 41 years ago. Being an easy connection for unchurched students means approaching them from the standpoint of love, connecting to their lives where they are, Conrad said. He described a student who had no obvious problems, but also had no faith life. He came to know it through YFC, and has kept Conrad up to date as he’s moved around and remains in church. A key is to be ready to share how Christ matters in the life of the adult, Conrad said. “You can build bridges forever, but sooner or later, you have to cross it,” he said. “It’s a process,” Conrad said. “Find out their story. They want to know your story. When God’s a part of my story, that connects.” Today, students who’ve graduated from YFC’s local middle-school-high-school program keep in touch through Facebook and other social media, so it’s easier for YFC volunteers and staff to see how they’re doing, Conrad said. One of the hardest things is seeing some of the students in the Fast Start program, who are boys in the juvenile justice system, fail, Conrad said. “If we’re not able to reach them, I read their names in the police blotter, and that tears me up,” he said. But the Fast Start program also has successes, which bring Conrad great joy. He loves it when a former student introduces him to the ex-student’s wife or children and says, “He’s the reason I’m not in jail.” There’s also a fundamental truth in how young people who don’t

• know the structured prayers of faith pray, Conrad said. “The most honest prayers I’ve ever heard have come from kids who’ve never been around praying,” Conrad said. “It’s not the right stuff. It’s the real stuff.” Conrad’s retirement won’t end his involvement in YFC. He’ll remain a volunteer at several levels of the group. The northeast Indiana office will join with the Fort Wayne office in a collaborative merger that will mean each county will have a chief ministry officer, Conrad said. He said the keys to his staying power have been God at work; his wife, Donna; and the relationships with people at YFC. A supportive spouse is a key for anyone in a full-time vocational ministry, he said. “It’s a tremendous honor to be allowed into a teenager’s life,” Conrad said. “If you treat them with respect and honor and pray for them more than they know, you can get into both their deep issues and some amazing stuff of joy.” He thanked the communities across the four counties and all the people and churches supporting YFC. “It has been a ride,” Conrad said,” sometimes heart-wrenching, lots of times rewarding.”

Fellow tree board member Paul Beckwith, who nominated Eberhardt for the IUFC award, calls Eberhardt a Renaissance Man. The Eberhardts were on the ground floor of the creation of McClue Reserve in the early 1960s. There were a lot of ideas about how to use the 80 acres gifted to Steuben County by Maurice McClue, but it was Marion’s suggestion that it be used as a school natural area that eventually won. It still is visited by classes of area youth every year and is overseen by a board of volunteer caretakers. Eberhardt joined the board for ACRES in the 1960s, too, and served until 2000. Marion served as recording secretary. “She added encouragement to all the things I did,” he said. Together they helped form the Adopt-ATree Festival at Wing Haven Nature Preserve 24 years ago. Eberhardt was appointed to the Angola Tree Board by the late Mayor Bill Selman, and he continues to serve in that capacity. He has been on the board for the Stockbridge Audubon Society for the past 10 years. “I’ve made some really good friends there,” he said.

For Eberhardt, it is the people that make his efforts worthwhile. “People, like birds, are very good,” said Art. Those who know Art — and that is many in Steuben County and beyond — will tell you he is very good, too. In addition to his volunteer work for conservation organizations, Eberhardt is a member of the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Angola. He regularly attends classes at the YMCA of Steuben County along with frequent walks through Marion’s Woods and his rural property. He enjoys folk music and attends monthly dulcimer jams at the Carnegie Public Library of Steuben County. He plays the dulcimer, the guitar, the autoharp and other instruments. He belongs to the Pokagon Pitchpipers singing group and enjoys sharing songs with his friends. This fall, Eberhardt’s love and kindness toward others was touted by the IUFC, along with leaders in several other categories, including Outstanding Project, Outstanding Tree Board or Urban Forestry Committee, Outstanding Government Entity and Outstanding Tree Steward. Last year’s

Outstanding Individual was Nate Mathews of Plainfield. Eberhardt will receive a plaque crafted from an Indiana ash tree, said Holly Jones, executive director of the IUFC. The nonprofit organization helps members with funding through state and federal grants for projects in Indiana cities, towns and suburbs. A committee chooses award recipients. Jones said around 30 people were nominated for the Outstanding Individual Award, and all of them were good candidates. The award is for those who have shown long-lasting dedication to conservation and trees, “people that get their hands dirty and really stick with it,” said Jones. The ever-humble Eberhardt points to many others who are deserving of the IUFC award, including Beckwith himself, who heads a long-standing Arbor Day tree-planting program for middle school students in the city of Angola. “I have all I want for my life to have this Marion’s Woods,” Eberhardt said, looking out into the changing leaves of a forest that sings with his wife’s spirit and speaks to his family’s love and caring for nature.

BACK PAY: Congress not any closer to resolution FROM PAGE A1

by Congress this week that allows the Pentagon to end furloughs for “employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members.” Republicans had complained that the administration was slow to bring back those workers in light of the law. The larger stalemate over reopening the federal government persists. Boehner, asked Saturday whether Congress was any closer to resolving the impasse, replied: “No.” Aides close to Boehner say he has not figured out how to end the gridlock. Even the day’s top bipartisan achievement — agreeing to pay furloughed federal employees for the work days they are missing — was a thin victory. Congress made the same deal after the mid-1990s shutdowns, and Saturday’s 407-0 vote was widely expected. Still, it triggered the sort of derisive quarreling that has prevented Congress from resolving the larger funding and debt dilemmas. “Of all the bizarre moments” involved in the debate, said Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, “this may be the most bizarre: that we

will pay people not to work.” He called it “the new tea party sense of fiscal responsibility.” House Republicans said they want to ease the pain from the partial shutdown. Democrats said Congress should fully re-open the government and let employees work for the pay they’re going to receive. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Saturday the Democratic-controlled Senate will approve retroactive pay for furloughed workers, although he didn’t specify when. The politics of the 5-day-old partial government shutdown have merged with partisan wrangling over the graver issue of raising the federal debt limit by Oct. 17. If that doesn’t happen, the White House says, the government will be unable to pay all its bills, including interest on debt. Economists say a U.S. default would stun world markets and likely send this nation, and possibly others, into recession. Boehner, R-Ohio, and Obama say they abhor the idea of a default. But they and their respective parties have not budged from positions that bar a solution. Obama says he will not negotiate tax and spending issues if they are linked to a debt-ceiling hike. Boehner

and his GOP allies say they will not raise the ceiling unless Democrats agree to deep spending cuts. Many House Republicans also demand curbs to Obama’s signature health care law as a condition of reopening the government. The president and his allies call the demand absurd. In interviews, key lawmakers and aides said they don’t know how the impasses might be resolved. But they laid out several possibilities, one of which includes: — Boehner yields. The speaker could pass bills to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling — with few or any concessions by Democrats — if he decided to anger many conservatives in his 232-person caucus and rely heavily on Democrats’ votes. That’s what Boehner did to mitigate massive tax increases at the beginning of the year and to give aid to victims of Superstorm Sandy. Most House Republicans opposed both measures. But if Boehner were to enact something as contentious as a debt-ceiling hike with a “minority of the majority,” he would face a GOP insurrection that could cost him the speakership. Many Democrats say he should do that.

Obama to public: Don’t give up on health sign-ups WASHINGTON (AP) — Defending the shaky rollout of his health care law, President Barack Obama said frustrated Americans “definitely shouldn’t give up” on the problem-plagued program now at the heart of his dispute with Republicans over reopening the federal government. Obama said public interest far exceeded the government’s expectations, causing Obama technology glitches that thwarted millions of Americans when trying to use government-run health care websites. “Folks are working around the clock and have been systematically reducing the wait times,” he said. The federal gateway website was taken down for repairs over the weekend, again hindering people from signing up for insurance.

Obama, in a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press, also disclosed that U.S. intelligence agencies believe Iran continues to be a year or more away from having the capability to make a nuclear weapon. That assessment is at odds with Israel, which contends Tehran is on a faster course toward a bomb. He expressed optimism about the blossoming diplomacy between his administration and Iran’s new president, but said the U.S. would not accept a “bad deal” on the Islamic republic’s nuclear program. The president spoke to the AP on Friday, four days into a partial shutdown of the federal government that has forced 800,000 people off the job, closed national parks and curbed many government services. Obama reiterated his opposition to negotiating with House Republicans to end the shutdown or raise the nation’s debt ceiling. “There are enough votes in the House of Representatives to make sure that the

government reopens today,” he said. “And I’m pretty willing to bet that there are enough votes in the House of Representatives right now to make sure that the United States doesn’t end up being a deadbeat.” On other points, Obama: —Contrasted his tenure as a senator with the current crop of first-term Republican senators, saying he “didn’t go around courting the media” or “trying to shut down the government” while he was in the Senate. —Said he’s considering keeping some American forces in Afghanistan after the war formally ends in late 2014, if an agreement can be reached with the Afghan government. He tried to do the same in Iraq but was unable to reach an agreement with its government. —Suggested that the owner of the Washington Redskins football team consider changing its name because, the president said, the current name offends “a sizable group of people.”




Karen threatens coast NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tropical Storm Karen continued its slow trudge Saturday toward the Gulf Coast, threatening to bring heavy wind and high rains despite losing some of its punch. Officials from Louisiana to northwest Florida acknowledged that the storm was weakening and sent some emergency workers home, but urged residents to be cautious. “The storm’s weakened, and that’s good news, but we’re not out of the woods yet,� New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu

said at a news conference. He warned of likely high winds, street flooding and power outages. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said forecasters had discontinued tropical storm watches across much of the Gulf Coast but that a portion of Louisiana remained under a tropical storm warning. Karen stalled for several hours Saturday but began moving slowly northward at about 2 mph by the late afternoon. It had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, making it a weak tropical storm.

Karen’s center was likely to come ashore either Saturday night or this morning. It was expected to weaken further and lose tropical-storm status today. Rick Knabb, the director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami, noted that “there is still the potential for some locally heavy rainfall and for some storm surge in coastal areas, but the magnitudes of those hazards greatly reduced. We still could see 1 to 3 feet of coastal flooding due to storm surge in some spots.� Matt Krus moves a piece of his roof out of his tornado damaged home Saturday Oct. 5, 2013 in Wayne, Neb.

Briefly • Attacks in Iraq kill at lesat 66 BAGHDAD (AP) — A suicide bomber blew himself up among a crowd of Shiite pilgrims passing through a mainly Sunni neighborhood in Baghdad and another detonated his explosives inside a cafe north of the capital, the deadliest of several attacks across Iraq on Saturday that killed at least 66 people. The killings, which also included attacks on journalists and anti-extremist Sunni fighters, are part of the deadliest surge in violence to hit Iraq in five years.

Four are suspects in Kenyan mall seige NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A military spokesman on Saturday confirmed the names of four men implicated in the attack on an upscale mall in Kenya’s capital last month, an assault that turned into a four-daylong siege and killed at least 67 people. Maj. Emmanuel Chirchir said the attackers were Abu Baara al-Sudani, Omar Nabhan, Khattab al-Kene and Umayr, names that were first broadcast by local Kenyan television station Citizen TV. The identities of the men came as the private TV station in Nairobi broadcast closed circuit television footage from Westgate mall.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Education officials in the nation’s secondlargest school district are working to reboot a $1 billion plan to put an iPad in the hands of each of their 650,000 students after an embarrassing glitch emerged when the first round of tablets went out. Instead of solving math problems or doing English homework, as administrators envisioned, more than 300 Los Angeles Unified School District students promptly cracked the security settings and started tweeting, posting to Facebook and playing video games. “‘Temple Run.’ ‘Subway Surfing.’ Oh, and some car racing game I can’t remember the name of,� said freshman Stephany Romero, laughing as she described the games she saw fellow Roosevelt High School students playing in class last week. That incident, and related problems, had both critics and supporters questioning this week whether LAUSD officials were being hasty or overreaching in their attempt to distribute an iPad to every student and teacher at the district’s more than 1,000 campuses by next year. “It doesn’t seem like there was much planning that went into this strategy,� said Renee Hobbs, director

of the Harrington School of Communication and Media at the University of Rhode Island. “That’s where the debacle began.� It’s crucial, she said, to spend extensive time drawing students into a discussion on using iPads responsibly before handing them out. And, of course, installing a firewall that can’t be easily breached. At Roosevelt High, it was the unanimous opinion of more than a dozen students that the school district’s security setup was so weak that even the most tech-challenged parent could have gotten past it. “It was so easy!� said freshman Carlos Espinoza. He explained that all one needed to do was access the tablet’s settings, delete the profile established by the school district and set up an Internet connection. He did it, he said, because he wanted to go on Facebook. “They kind of should have known this would happen,� said Espinoza’s friend Maria Aguilera. “We’re high school students after all. I mean, come on,� she added. As word spread, with the speed of a microprocessor, that anyone could crack the firewall, officials quickly confiscated the devices and put a freeze on using them off campus.

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Breaking nearly century-old early autumn snowfall records, a storm system smothered South Dakota’s scenic Black Hills in South Dakota with up to three and a half feet of wet, heavy snow, leaving residents the challenge of digging out. But wintry weather wasn’t the only thing delivered by the powerful cold front that crossed the Great Plains, as unusually strong thunderstorms brought heavy rain, hail and as many as nine tornadoes to Nebraska and Iowa. Fifteen people in northeast Nebraska were injured in a tornado Friday, while three died in a car accident on a snow-slicked road. Forecasters said the front would eventually combine with other storms to make for a wild — and probably

very wet — weekend for much of the central U.S. and Southeast. Power outages and impassable roads plagued western South Dakota on Saturday. More than 25,000 people had lost power in the Black Hills area, and authorities were recruiting snowmobilers to help rescue about 80 motorists who’d been stuck overnight. Rapid City plow driver Jesse Curnow said Saturday morning things weren’t moving so smoothly in chest-high drifts after a record 21-inch snowfall. He couldn’t get out of the business’ parking lot. “I’m trapped. I can kind of move, but only a little bit,� Curnow said by telephone from the cab of his truck. Pennington County Emergency Management spokeswoman Alexa White

said rescue efforts were slow-going, because “the only way to get there is the snowmobiles or the Sno-Cats.� “The plows have gotten stuck in the roads,� she said. Also stuck were four employees of the National Weather Service’s Rapid City office. They’d been there since Friday, meteorologist David Carpenter said Saturday. “There is a 3-foot drift across the parking lot and no one has had the energy to shovel it out yet,� he said. Friday’s snowfall — 19 inches — broke the previous one-day snowfall record for October by about nine inches; it was set on Oct. 19, 1919, Carpenter said. Rapid City saw an extra 2.5 inches overnight. Friday also surpassed the record for the entire month, 15.1 inches, also set in 1919.

SATURDAY’S SCORES BOSTON.......................................4 DETROIT.......................................1 COLUMBUS ..............................3 N.Y. ISLANDERS .....................2



KENDALLVILLE — The East Noble boys tennis team does OK come sectional time. The Knights claimed their sixth consecutive sectional championship Saturday, routing Westview 4-1 between rain showers on their home courts to advance to the regional round yet again for another shot at that crown. East Noble advances to 13-4 on the season. “We played extremely tough, and I’m just ecstatic,” said East Noble coach Nathan Toles. “Westview gave us pretty steady scare at a few matches, but all that matters at the end of the day was

we came out on top. We’ve got a great group of kids and, during the middle of the season, I turned over a new leaf with them and told them, ‘You guys know what you need to do and you know what the goal is for the season and what you need to do to get there,’ and we all made a pact to do everything they could every time they step on the court, and they really, really put together a nice season.” Toles said his team began the day slowly, perhaps to be expected after a more than two hour rain delay. Their talent and experience, though, powered through. Freshman Austin Mohamedali defeated Kohle Christner of

Westview 6-1, 6-4 at No. 1 singles to key East Noble. Mohamedali is now 15-9 on the season. At No. 2 singles, the Knights’ Evan Hart worked past Westview’s Andrew Yoder 6-4, 6-2. East Noble’s No. 2 doubles team of Brennen Biggins and Adam Albertin defeated the Westview pair of Zachary Schrock and Taylor Eash 7-5, 6-3. The No. 3 singles match between Aaron Dills of East Noble and Stephen Gierek of Westview was the afternoon’s most dramatic, with the players trading shot for shot as rain clouds moved in and threatened play. Dills finally outlasted Gierek 7-6 (7-5), 4-6,

Trine coach Matt Land was 7-0 against Kalamazoo before Saturday. “They’re a good football team,” Land said of the Hornets. “I told Coach Zorbo before the game that this is the best Kalamazoo team I’ve ever seen. He Lou Holtz-ed his way around it, but I was serious. “We’ve got to execute. We were not consistent in all three phases. You can not be inconsistent and play undisciplined and expect to win. Danzy threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to running back Elijah Hamilton-Wray with 5 minutes, 45 seconds left to break a 31-31 tie. That capped a 12-play, 97-yard drive over 3:44. Danzy completed two big throws en route to the score. He connected deep with Josh Wise for a 45-yard reception on a 3rd-and-10 play from the Hornets’ 3-yard line. Danzy hit K.J. Schultz for a six-yard pass to the Thunder 25 on a 4th-and-four play. “Danzy had a great game. But even better, he is an extremely intelligent player who makes great decisions,” Zorbo said. “Wise

FORT WAYNE — Mother Nature was not kind to runners in Saturday’s Northeast Hoosier Conference cross country meet at The Plex — it rained throughout the entire competition, there were puddles everywhere and the course was muddy beyond belief. And that’s the way Mark Beckmann prefers it. The DeKalb junior runner not only embraces those elements, he thrives in them. Beckmann And he proved as much Saturday morning, winning the boys’ individual title with a time of 16 minutes, 9.8 seconds. “I love rain,” Beckmann said. “It just gets me pumped up. It’s awesome to run here, just because I look around at my body and say, man, I’m soaked and that was awesome. That was fun.” Beckmann held off Carroll sophomore Cameron Clements, who finished six seconds back. The duo were running shoulder-toshoulder for the first 2/3 of the race before Beckmann pulled ahead in the woods shortly before coming down the final straightaway. “He’s been waiting for that for three years,” said DeKalb coach Rowland Perez. “It’s a good confidence booster right now to take us through the rest of the tournament. “He’s a hard worker, and he’s one of the best in the area. We’re looking for top-15 at state and he just showed he belongs with an elite group. We’re proud to get the win now, so he can see that he can do it when he has to.” Beckmann, a state qualifier in

Hornets stun Trine BY KEN FILLMORE

ANGOLA — Trine University’s football team could not keep up with Kalamazoo’s high-powered offense Saturday in a stunning 38-31 homecoming loss to the Hornets in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association opener for both teams at Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium. “It was a very gutty win,” Kalamazoo coach Jamie Zorbo said. “We needed to play four quarters better, but we kept after it. “It has taken some time to bring in some good football players. If we believe in ourselves and are healthy, we can hang with anybody. Right now, we feel like we are good enough to win, and that’s half the battle.” Junior quarterback Justin Danzy had a career day to lead Kalamazoo to its first win on the gridiron over the Thunder since 2005. He was 37-for-51 passing for 423 yards with four touchdown passes and no interceptions, and he was held out of two Hornet drives in the second half because of a twisted ankle.

WN boys, Fremont girls win NECC BY BOB BUTTGEN

LIGONIER — West Noble’s boys team and Fremont’s girls carried on winning traditions in Saturday’s Northeast Corner Conference cross country meet, held Saturday on the West Noble campus. Each team went home with the NECC championship trophy in different ways. Fremont’s girls overcame adversity as one of their top six runners twisted her ankle getting off the team bus and was unable to compete. But the Eagles were still able to place five girls in the top 10 to easily outdistance secondplace West Noble. For the West Noble boys, this was the Chargers’ 12th consecutive NECC title. The dynasty was helped by the Chargers placing four runners in the top 10 to outpace second-place Fairfield. West Noble’s Brandon Arnold,

a junior, won the boys’ individual championship in a time of 16:54.05, while Fremont’s Abby Hostetler returned to the winner’s circle after a year’s absence. She won this race as a sophomore and placed second in last year’s race. This year she enjoyed a huge 47-second lead over the secondplace finisher Amairany Cruz of West Noble. In the girls’ division, following Fremont’s 25 points and West Noble with 55 points, were: 3. Fairfield 70; 4. Angola 96; 5. Westview 118; and 6. Lakeland 125. West Noble’s boys had a team score of 35. Fairfield was second with 74, followed by: 3. Lakeland 80, 4. Angola 125; 5. Westview 130; 6. Churubusco 144; 7. Prairie Heights 155, 8. Fremont 164, and 9. Central Noble 250. West Noble coach Rusty Emmert said his squad was looking for a team victory heading

into next week’s sectional race, which also will be run over the 5K course at West Noble. “Brandon Arnold ran strong for us,” Emmert said. “It wasn’t one of his best times, but today was just about going out and getting a win.” Arnold’s teammate, Bradley Pyle, stepped up to a third-place finish overall. Also in the top 10 for the Chargers were Alex deLuna in sixth and Salvador Campos, ninth. “Brad Pyle’s been running very, very well here in his senior year,” Emmert said, “and Alex deLuna, a sophomore, ran just an awesome race. I’m very pleased with everyone.” Fremont girls coach Moses Castillo said he was proud his team was able to overcome the accident that left Riley McCrea, his sixth runner, unable to compete. “It was just a freak SEE NECC, PAGE B3

Colts’ Wayne on brink of joining 1,000-catch club INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Each afternoon at training camp, Reggie Wayne trots over to the JUGS machine, sheds the pads and begins his post-practice magic show. Teammates watch in awe seeing a 13-year veteran still spending this much time day after day, catching ball after blazing ball in the scorching summer heat. They’re even more impressed as Wayne hauls in the mechanical fastballs with one hand or two, inches off the turf, near his head or coming straight into his chest. Few, if any, touch the ground. It doesn’t take the players long to figure out why Wayne makes spectacular plays look so routine on game days. He’s already done it thousands of times on the practice field. “He’s always been that guy,” Redskins receiver and college teammate Santana Moss said. “When we first came in as freshmen, Reggie Wayne, we knew, was our guy. He started right off the bat. We always said he could catch a BB in the dark. The best hands I’ve ever seen.” While some might debate where Wayne belongs among today’s greats, there’s no quibbling with Moss’ broader point. Wayne has been one of the

needs only 10 more receptions to become the ninth member of the NFL’s 1,000-catch club. It could happen Sunday against Seattle with a big performance. But Wayne’s value to the Colts

cannot be measured in numbers alone. Inside the locker room, teammates universally describe him as a pro’s pro, the guy willing to sacrifice anything to win. This

summer, Luck dubbed Wayne the team’s “real” president. Just this week, longtime teammate and close friend Antoine Bethea acknowledged younger players would be “fools” not to learn from Wayne. Wayne is so beloved in the Indianapolis community that if he’s not the city’s favorite Reggie, he’s certainly No. 2 behind former Pacers star Reggie Miller. And Wayne is so committed to this team and this city, he turned down a bigger payday and a chance to team up with an old college pal, Houston’s Andre Johnson. Instead, he chose to help restore the luster to a Colts team that had gone 2-14, cut Peyton Manning and seemed miles away from Super Bowl contention. Somehow, he helped the Colts make a historic turnaround and get right back to the playoffs. “Reggie showed us how to work. He showed us how to be professionals, sort of how to play football at a high level,” Luck said. “(He) always made sure we were on the right path. He’s not the most talkative guy, but if he had something to say, he’d say it and everybody listened. He commanded everybody’s respect, I think also demanded it in return. We would be nowhere without him. I really believe that.”

Ortiz homers twice in Boston win

BARONS: Knight XC boys runners finish fourth

BOSTON (AP) — John Lackey has watched David Ortiz wreak destruction on playoff opponents before. He finally got a chance to see it from the same dugout. “I like it a lot better on this side, that’s for sure,” Lackey said after Ortiz hit two homers to lead the Red Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday and give Boston a 2-0 lead. It was the first two-homer postseason game for Ortiz, who is the only player remaining from the 2004 Red Sox team that won the franchise’s first World Series title in 86 years. He was also a star of the ‘07 team that won it all; both times, they opened

cross country and track last year, earned first-team all-NHC honors last year but he wasn’t satisfied with that performance. The goal Saturday was to win, and Beckmann accomplished the feat. “I was proud because it’s been awhile since a guy was able to do this from DeKalb, and I’m glad to do it,” Beckmann said. “It’s a momentum thing and mental thing, so that helps a lot, too. Just keep trying to set goals and trying to reach them, trying to make a statement before the postseason starts.” DeKalb (78) finished third and East Noble (125) fourth in the team competition. Carroll won with 36 points, narrowly beating runner-up Homestead (42). Norwell was fifth (140), Bellmont sixth (160), Columbia City seventh (164) and New Haven eighth (202). Joining Beckmann on the first team was East Noble sophomore Joe Vandiver, who placed seventh (17:06). “We were hoping he’d get first team, but he’s a sophomore so you don’t know what’s going to happen,” said EN coach Mark Liepe. “He plugged away and finished real solid. He had a better kick than I’ve seen him have in a long time. He had a goal set in his mind and he didn’t let anyone take that away from him.” DeKalb junior Clay Travis finished 13th (17:36.1) to earn secondteam all-NHC honors. DeKalb senior Bradley McBride (17th, 17:47.8),

the playoffs by eliminating Lackey’s Los Angeles Angels. “He’s tough this time of year — any time of year,” Lackey said. “He’s a guy that likes bright lights, for sure.” Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and scored three runs for the AL East champions. Dustin Pedroia drove in three runs, and Lackey earned the win in his first postseason start since joining the Red Sox as a free agent in 2010. Ortiz hit his first homer in the first inning, then his second in the eighth to chase Rays starter David Price. “As long as we win, it means a lot,” Ortiz said. “It’s not over. We’ve got to keep on fighting.”

Tampa Bay will need a victory in Game 3 on Monday in St. Petersburg, Fla., to avoid a sweep in the best-of-five series. The Rays won three win-or-go-home games this week just to reach this round, including Price’s complete game in the tiebreaker against Texas to determine the second AL wild-card team. “I’m really looking forward to Game 5 here,” said Rays manager Joe Maddon, knowing the Rays would have to win the next two to force the series to the limit. “We just went through a week of (our) backs against the wall, so it’s not new to us. It’s going to be difficult. … But I don’t think it’s impossible by any means.”



DeKalb sophomore Krista McCormick (right) finished in 11th place (20 minutes, 00.9 seconds) in Saturday’s Northeast Hoosier Conference Meet to earn second-team all-NHC honors.

East Noble senior Jonathon Kane (18th, 17:48.2) and DeKalb senior Dante Graham (19th, 17:50.9) all earned honorable mention all-NHC honors. DeKalb sophomore Scotty Beckmann was 28th (18:23.3). For East Noble, sophomore Tyler Klinger was 30th (18:24.3), Seth Gorski was 32nd (18:25.7) and junior Frank Herrera was 38th (18:43.6). “(Klinger) made up a lot of ground after the first 1,000 meters,” Liepe said. “We had a freshman, Seth Gorski, who stepped up big time (Saturday). Those four

ran real good races and set the tone for the rest of the team.” In the girls race, Carroll completed the boy-girl sweep with 33 points. Homestead was second (66) followed by Norwell (106), Bellmont (121), DeKalb (126), East Noble (137), Columbia City (151) and New Haven (203). East Noble senior Alexia Zawadzke (ninth, 19:56.5) and DeKalb sophomore Krista McCormick (11th, 20:00.9) both earned secondteam all-NHC honors. East Noble senior Courtney Casselman (16th, 20:58.8) and DeKalb senior Kara Robinett (21st, 21:20.0) were honorable mention. “(Zawadzke) went out way too hard last weekend and this time she went out way too easy,” Liepe said. “We’ve just got to figure out what’s right for her to finish strong.” For the Barons, junior Ashlyn Teders was 29th (21:56.7), junior Taylor Beachy was 30th (22:02.3) and senior MaKayla Rieke was 35th (22:21.7). For the Knights, freshman Jessica Vandiver was 27th (21:49.8), freshman Lanie Allen was 40th (22:38.3) and senior Kara McLaughlin was 45th (22:59.3). “It’s not a do-or-die situation right now but we like to use it as a gauge to where we are and what we need to do,” Perez said. “We’ve got a week to refine some things. We’ll try to get as fast as we can and try to get a couple individuals to Terre Haute, but this is a difficult area for runners.”

seniors.” Yoder said the match was one of the closest sectional matches he’s been a part of and praised the effort his team gave. “It was a close match all the way across,” said Yoder. “I’m really proud of how my kids played. They really played to win. It’s disappointing, but it was

close and they went for it, so that’s what I’m happy with.” Moving ahead, East Noble will face Fairfield in the opening round of the regional. The Falcons beat the Knights 3-2 early in the season. Toles said without overlooking Fairfield, the goal is to face nemesis Angola in the regional final, and get the proverbial monkey off their back from

there. “We’ve never won a team regional here at East Noble, and that would be something that would top my bucket list of accomplishments and be really, really exciting to see,” said Toles. “I keep telling the kids that this is the year that the stars are aligned. Everybody believes in them; it’s time to show them what they can do.”




Hoosiers finally topple Penn State BLOOMINGTON — Nate Sudfeld threw two touchdown passes and Tre Roberson ran for two more scores Saturday, leading Indiana to its first win ever against Penn State 44-24. The Hoosiers (3-2, 1-0 Big Ten) capped their five-game home stand by ending a 16-game losing streak to the Nittany Lions (3-2, 0-1). It looked like Penn State might keep the streak alive after taking its first lead of the game on a 26-yard TD pass from Christian Hackenberg to Allen Robinson early in the third quarter. But Indiana answered with a scoring flurry. Tevin Coleman scored on a 44-yard run and Roberson scored on a 2-point conversion run. Roberson then added a 2-yard TD run early in the fourth and after Penn State failed on fourth-and-2 from its own 33, Kofi Hughes made a nifty, sliding, over-theshoulder catch for a 36-yard TD and a 35-17 lead. Roberson followed that with a 9-yard TD run to seal it. Sudfeld finished 23 of 38 for 321 yards passing with one interception and one touchdown pass in each half. Roberson wound up in the end zone on each of his first three touches — all quarterback keepers inside Penn State 10-yard line. Coleman ran 20 times for 92 yards and a score, Cody Latimer caught nine passes for 140 yards and went over the 100-yard mark for the third-straight game, and the

defense that had ranked among the worst in the nation against the run limited Penn State to just 70 yards on the ground. Michigan 42, Minnesota 13 Devin Gardner threw a 24-yard, go-ahead touchdown pass to Devin Funchess late in the first half and No. 19 Michigan pulled away to rout Minnesota 42-13 on Saturday. The Wolverines (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) relied on their running game to take pressure off the turnoverprone Gardner. He didn’t throw an interception for the first time since making his first start as a quarterback last year at Minnesota.

The Golden Gophers (4-2, 0-2) were without coach Jerry Kill for an entire game for the first time because of his epilepsy. He had a seizure Saturday morning, when he planned to travel to Michigan to coach in the game, and remained home to rest in Minnesota. Gardner was 13 of 17 for 235 yards with a TD through the air and ran seven times for 17 yards and another score. Gardner recovered his own fumble late in the game and bounced back on the next snap by converting third-and-11 with a 22-yard pass to Funchess to set up the QB’s

rushing TD. Michigan State 26, Iowa 14 Connor Cook threw for a career-high 277 yards and two touchdowns and Michigan State opened Big Ten play with a 26-14 win over Iowa on Saturday. Darqueze Dennard had a pair of interceptions for the Spartans (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten), who held the Hawkeyes (4-2, 1-1) scoreless in the second half. Cook put Michigan State ahead to stay with a 37-yard TD pass to Bennie Fowler early in the third quarter. Freshman Michael Geiger added three field goals in the

second half for the Spartans, who held Iowa to 23 yards rushing. Mark Weisman ran for just nine yards on seven carries for the Hawkeyes, who saw their four-game winning streak snapped. Jake Rudock threw for 241 yards and two touchdowns for the Hawkeyes. But Dennard picked him off twice, including an interception with 5:09 left that largely ended the suspense. Nebraska 39, Illinois 19 Ameer Abdullah ran for a career-high 225 yards, Tommy Armstrong Jr. led the Huskers (4-1, 1-0) to touchdowns on his first three series at quarterback and Nebraska piled up 521 yards in the Big Ten opener. Just as big as Abdullah and Armstrong’s performance was that of Nebraska’s defense, which had been one of the nation’s worst through four games. Illinois (3-2, 0-1), which came in averaging 40 points a game, didn’t score its first touchdown until the middle of the third quarter. Twice when the Illini looked as if they would make a game of it, the Huskers made big stops. The Huskers were never threatened. Their defense got a three-and-out on the first series of the game, and then Abdullah did most of the work on a 57-yard touchdown drive. Ciante Evans forced a Donovonn Young fumble on Illinois’ next possession, and it was 14-0 after Armstrong flipped a 4-yard TD pass to Quincy Enunwa.

McCrea attended the awards ceremony on crutches and her teammates let her hold the champions’ trophy as photos were taken. “We’re just real glad we were able to get back-toback conference titles,” said Castillo, in his 17th season as the Eagles’ coach. “Abby ran well and did what she needed to do.

Knights win to close regular season FORT WAYNE — East Noble’s boys varsity soccer team closed the regular season in very wet conditions on Saturday and battled through adversity to win 3-2. The Knights started strong, going up 1-0 10 minutes into the game when Mason Diffenderfer found Matt Patton on a set piece from 30 yards out. The service and finish were both of a high quality and made the 11th assist and goal respectively on the season. With 10 minutes left in the half the Generals tied the game when Cesar Maldanoda took a shot from 30 yards out that hit the cross bar and went in. The second half started with Wayne scoring quick when they got behind the East Noble defense and Miguel Ram went to goal to finish with a near post shot. The Knights then showed a lot of character and raised their intensity, scoring the next two goals from gutsy hard work. The first came when Kaleb Williams made a save and punted the ball for a quick outlet and counter attack. Mohsin Shemman and Tristan Foltyniak did the rest. After Mohsin out worked the back to get to the ball he beat the charging keeper and slotted the ball into he goal. With a defender chasing the ball down Tristan worked hard to make sure he could not clear the ball off the line. Ten minutes later, Mohsin was back at it, working hard to get he ball in the box and taking people on to create chances. After beating one defender, Mohsin got clipped in the box, forcing a penalty kick. Abdu Afifiy stepped up to the plate and calmly put the ball past he outstretched keeper to make the score 3-2. The Knights held off Wayne’s attack the rest of the way to get their ninth win of the season and sixth win in a row. Ryan Bloom, Alex Pashea, Evan Strack and Sergio Castro played very solid games for the Knights at midfield and in

the back. East Noble seniors broke a school record by winning their 42nd game as a class. The Knights take on Leo in the first round of sectionals on Monday at Dekalb. The start time is 5 p.m.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Kenseth wins Nationwide race at Kansas Speedway KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Matt Kenseth got into his Nationwide car and drove it to victory Saturday, taking advantage of a controversial late-race wreck that involved Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch to conserve enough fuel for the end. Kenseth crossed the finish line well ahead of Paul Menard, who got around Regan Smith on the final lap to take second. Busch finished fourth and Justin Allgaier was fifth. Austin Dillon finished sixth to take over the Kenseth points lead from Sam Hornish Jr. with four races left in the season. Parker Kligerman, Brad Sweet, Trevor Bayne and Elliott Sadler rounded out the top 10 in a race that was filled with cautions. There were 11 in all totaling 50 laps.

Dixon wins and moves within 8 points of Helio HOUSTON (AP) — Scott Dixon made the opening race of the Houston Grand Prix a Penske Racing nightmare, grabbing a series-best fourth victory while slicing a huge chunk off Helio Castroneves’ lead in the championship race. Dixon, who entered Saturday’s race trailing Castroneves by 49 points, cut his deficit to eight points heading into Sunday. A sweep of the doubleheader through Reliant Park would put Dixon in control headed into the Oct. 19 finale at Fontana, Calif. It was the 33rd win of Dixon’s career, and one more would tie him with Al Unser Jr. for sixth on the IndyCar list. Dixon was aided by the first mechanical problem of the season for Castroneves, who had been the only driver to complete every lap this year entering the race. But a mechanical problem just 22 laps in Saturday sent him to pit road. Simona de Silvestro finished a careerbest second to earn her first IndyCar podium in her 63rd start. Justin Wilson was third in his fourth podium finish of the season. IndyCar’s first race in Houston since 2007 has been plagued by a bump in the first turn that was not discovered until cars hit the track for the first time Friday. Because the promoter could not start building the course until after the Houston Texans’ game on Sunday, IndyCar had no access to the track and a build usually done over several weeks was completed over several days. Qualifying was postponed Friday and IndyCar used a chicane of tires at the bump so drivers could still practice, and crews used a grinder on the surface all night to try to smooth it down. It was still rough, though, and IndyCar decided it could only do single-file restarts for the two races because of the issue.

Derrick Rose returns in exhibition opener INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Derrick Rose made a successful return to the Chicago Bulls, scoring 13 points in 20 minutes in an 82-76 exhibition victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night Rose led the Bulls to the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference two seasons ago before he tore his left ACL during the playoffs, then missed all of last season while recovering. Indiana’s Danny Granger also returned after missing most of last season with a left knee injury. He finished with six points on 2-for-10 shooting in 29 minutes.

decisions,” Zorbo said. “Wise made play after play and also gutted it out after cramping up a bit. He’s a great route runner.” Wise caught 11 passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns. Kalamazoo outgained Trine in total offense 534-389. The Thunder (3-2, 0-1) got a stop late in the fourth quarter and forced Kalamazoo to punt for a chance to tie. Trine started from its 12-yard line with 2:45 left. It converted once on fourth down, but ended up turning the ball over on downs at its 27. After Kalamazoo took three knees, it had to punt and Trine had one desperation chance left from its own 19. Thunder quarterback Andrew Dee was hit as he threw an incomplete pass on the final play of the game. The game slowed down in the second half and the Thunder finally drew even late in the third quarter. Richard Gunn had his second touchdown of the game on a 62-yard scamper around left end. Tyler Keck kicked the extra point to tie the contest at 31 with 1:08 left in the third. It was the first time the game was tied since late in the opening quarter. Gunn ran for 165 yards on 25 carries. Trine will begin its uphill climb in the MIAA at Albion this coming Saturday. This will be the Britons’ conference opener after having this weekend off. “I don’t think anyone will come out of our conference undefeated,” Land said. “We’ll have to now.”

Our View •

‘Fog’ delay harms nation as a whole This past week fog delays on Monday and Tuesday shortened and sped up the school day for thousands of area students. We have a fog delay of a different sort on the national level. Because of Republicans’ strong opposition to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the refusal of Democrats to discuss a compromise we have a partial government shutdown. We don’t know how/when it will end but we do know that no matter what the outcome, thousands of people’s lives are being disrupted, there is needless suffering and millions of dollars are being wasted. The partial government shutdown represents foggy thinking by leaders of both parties. Clearly, Obamacare should have been a less complicated, less intrusive bill. But parts of the bill are very popular with the public and good for the nation as a whole. Obamacare needs tweaking and reductions in scope. But a partial government shutdown is not the way to achieve that goal. Our leaders are in a mental fog. As the focus shifts to the need to raise the debt limit by Oct. 17 to avoid a default, we don’t see any break in the clouds. We hope eyes open, the fog lifts, and the average American can have brighter skies ahead.

Fog delays and rose-colored glasses On the local level, weather-related delays are often welcomed by students. Could some good come out of starting school later every day? If all schools started one hour later than they do now, weather-related delays might be significantly reduced, perhaps almost eliminated. In addition, students might begin their school day more awake and focused. Speaking of focused, studies indicate that walking to school can help students function better mentally. For example, a recent survey of more than 2,500 pupils showed that 80 percent of those who walked to school reported feeling calmer and more able to concentrate when they got there. The students also said they felt healthier and looked better. The survey, carried out by Intelligent Health, said that the link between exercise and school performance would also benefit children suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The firm’s founder William Bird said, “Physical activity improves brain elasticity, which allows children to learn. Exercise also releases endorphins, which make you more relaxed.” ADHD, one of the most common childhood disorders, is marked by short attention span, restlessness and difficulty controlling behavior. The New York Times reports that 11 percent of American school children (ages 4-17) are diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. That’s a 41 percent increase over the last decade. The increase in ADHD has occurred at the same time walking to school has decreased. Former Kendallville resident Kim Irwin, the Indiana Safe Routes to School Partnership and Health by Design coordinator, said the percentage of children walking or biking to school has dropped from approximately 50 percent in 1969 to 13 percent in 2009. Perhaps we are wearing rose-colored glasses, but if school started later and more students walked to school maybe overall classroom behavior and academic achievement would rise.

Jesus lived as working teacher, embracing a loving Father To the editor: Eons ago inspired thinkers began building images of who and what the Creator of the Universe might be like. In looking at the complexities of nature, the lands, the seas and the star-dotted heavens, even though they knew nothing of science and believed in magic, they knew that God had to be a vastly superior being to create such wondrous natural complexities. But being accustomed to the dictatorial quirks of THEIR leaders, they assumed God shared many of those same human qualities. As a result they envisioned a God similar to but stretching far beyond the powers of their past rulers. But they still created a God in man’s image. Early people saw God as a Super Human Spiritual Monarch in control of all nature, of all life and death. This Supreme Monarch endowed governing leaders with the right to punish those who disobeyed the laws by subjecting them to various forms of torture: cutting out tongues for lying, cutting off hands for stealing, burning or gouging out eyes for looking lasciviously at others, stoning to death women accused of sexual misconduct, and throwing other serious offenders — such as blasphemers — into nearby lava pits. One of the most important rules they all had to follow was bowing down and praising their Supreme Monarch — thinking God demanded the same worshipful attention demanded by their own egotistical kings and tribal leaders. Early Hebrew tribes lived at one time in what is now the Sinai Dessert. Early on it was a fertile agricultural area. But over several thousand years it gradually lost its fertility, undergoing

lengthy droughts — eventually becoming the sandy desert of today. As life became more difficult, the tribes became more restless, wondering why God was not providing for His Chosen People.’Leaders began sending scouts into surrounding areas. Some returned with reports they had found much more fertile lands, but they were occupied by other tribes. Leaders then taught that if they all obeyed the laws, God would lead them to a Promised Land. But to move thousands of people to an occupied area, a large army had to be trained to slay and/or drive out the “infidel” residents. Many centuries later a young man born in that Promised Land displayed a much different view of God. He didn’t see God as a “Supreme Selfish Being” demanding worship. He saw a kind and loving Father wanting ALL of His children to be kind and get along one another. Jesus realized that learning about our great creation and about one another was crucial to living a good life. The Bible reports even highly-educated leaders were awed by his conceptual understanding and wisdom when he was only 12 years old. Jesus was already more educated and had better understanding of moral principles than most leaders of his day. While Jesus continued to grow in wisdom and stature, he chose to live as a working teacher, remaining in a non-ruling status. How we picture the Supreme Being motivates much of our daily behavior. I have talked to many people about their mental picture of a Supreme Being, but only a few embrace the vision of God that Jesus taught: a kind, forgiving and loving Father of ALL humanity. E. Gene Gorrell Jimmerson Lake Fremont

Hoosiers receive a new level of public service INDIANAPOLIS — You know, I really hate the speed limit on Interstate 65, so instead of going 70 mph, I plan to go 95 mph. And if Mr. Trooper, Sir, stops me, I think I’ll get some of my friends and we’ll block the all the lanes and shoulders until they raise the speed limit. There were two profoundly intertwined stories last week — the shutdown of the federal government and the launching of Obamacare. In Washington, the Republican hatred of the Affordable Care Act has become so intense that lawmakers like Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Indiana U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman were willing to put this nation on the path of a shutdown and default. The reason can be summed up on the Real Clear Politics website which lists 243 polls taken on Obamacare since its passage and 95 percent of those polls (231 of 243) have shown that the American people oppose the ACA. But it’s more nuanced than that. Ball State’s Bowen Center and other polls have broken out components of the ACA — such as whether people with pre-existing conditions should be able to get health insurance — and the support rises, often into the 60th percentile and beyond. The two polls that really mattered occurred in November 2010 and November 2012 when citizens went to the ballot box. In 2010, Republicans retook the House, picking up 66 seats. Two years later, President Obama was reelected and with that, Obamacare was pretty much a reality until Jan. 21, 2017. Reinforcing this was what happened in the U.S. Senate. Populist tea party

candidates who won U.S. Senate nominations in low-turnout primaries essentially propelled safe or heavily leaning Republican seats in Indiana, Delaware, Colorado, Missouri, Nevada and Maine into the Democratic column. What could have easily been a 51-49 Republican Senate majority last November became a 55-45 Democratic one. Joe Donnelly, who voted for the ACA, is now Indiana’s Democratic HOWEY senator. POLITICAL As I sat down to REPORT write this column, Stutzman uttered one of the most quotes: Brian Howey incredible “We’re not going to be disrespected,” he told the Washington Examiner. “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.” OMG. Indiana’s Congressional Republicans were still drawing their paychecks at this writing while hundreds of thousands of federal workers are furloughed. There were never enough votes to sustain this insurrection. In two weeks, the real danger arises over whether the U.S. debt ceiling is raised. This is a quantum elevation of the stakes because the planet’s financial system foundation rests with U.S. Treasury bonds, where investment finds security. In a default, the safety of these bonds will be eroded. It would dwarf the Lehman Brothers collapse of 2008, with many of us still feeling

that impact. A default could find the financial foundation relocated to Shanghai. So Stutzman’s notion of “we have to get something out of this” and he doesn’t know what that is should get your alarm bells clanging. The other story is Obamacare launch. What we witnessed last week are federal health exchanges getting such heavy volume that the web servers are overwhelmed. Most Americans don’t know how to navigate this system and the computer glitches only exacerbate this. Normally in this type of situation, our Public Servants are there to help. But this is Indiana. While states like Maryland, according to Gannett News Service, are spending $24 million to help citizens navigate this process, Indiana allocated $2 million. Republicans from Gov. Pence, through the General Assembly and the Congressional delegation appear content to sit on their hands and let folks struggle. Why? Because if the system fails, they hope the ACA collapses. The more folks getting on the exchanges means that success is more likely. On the website and its health reform portal, Hoosiers going through the Frequently Asked Questions found propaganda — the controversial Indiana Department of Insurance analysis that insurance rates are going to go up 72 percent with the average Hoosier paying $570 a month. This was a gross simplification of all the data, rounded off into one very troubling number. State Rep. Ed Clere, the New Albany Republican who chairs the House Public Health Committee, told

“People want solutions, not pointless partisanship … Whether we like it or not, it’s the law, and … we should focus on getting the best possible deal for Indiana.”

• my colleague Maureen Hayden of CNHI, “It’s a high visibility issue with mass confusion. Everybody’s heard of Obamacare. Everybody knows something big is going on. What they don’t know are the details.” Clere was at a town hall in Indianapolis last Monday as the fight in Congress over the ACA was shutting down the federal government. He found people seeking help. “It shows the divide between the political elite and the people who most need access to insurance,” he said. “People want solutions, not pointless partisanship. There are plenty of reasons to question the design and sustainability of the ACA, but those are debates for another day. Whether we like it or not, it’s the law, and as state policymakers, we should focus on getting the best possible deal for Indiana.” Folks, we are in a new era of public service and, quite frankly, it has stooped to a new, low, disgusting level.

Auburn grad publishes fresh look at JFK’s death Author Mark Shaw graduated from Auburn High School in the fateful year of 1963. Several months later, Shaw was a freshman at Purdue University when he heard the news that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. Now, 50 years later, Shaw believes he has come “as close to the truth as we can get in trying to solve what I call the greatest cold case in history: Who killed JFK and why?” Shaw, who today lives in California, reveals his theory in his new book “The Poison Patriarch.” The title gives away Shaw’s conclusion that Kennedy’s father, Joseph P. Kennedy, set in motion a chain of events that led to the death of his son, the president. As for who orchestrated the assassination, Shaw points his finger at a little-known Mafia don from New Orleans, Carlos Marcello. After thousands of conspiracy theorists and 2,000 authors have tackled the subject of JFK’s death, Shaw believes he has something

unique to offer. “I have the advantage over every other person who has written about this,” Shaw said Friday. “I’m a former criminal defense lawyer, so I look at this case as if I were Jack Ruby’s lawyer.” Ruby shot suspected assassin DAVE Lee Harvey Oswald on KURTZ national television the day after the killing of Kennedy. Shaw just happens to be an expert on Ruby’s lawyer, Melvin Belli. He knew Belli personally and wrote a biography on the famous attorney, published in 2007. “While writing that biography, I started learning some things about the Jack Ruby case that shocked me,” Shaw said. He spent the next six years tracing those leads for his book. “No former criminal defense

lawyer has ever investigated the JFK assassination,” Shaw said. After his courtroom career, Shaw served as a legal analyst for ABC, ESPN and USA Today before switching to a career as an author, producing 25 books to date. Belli ranked as the most famous lawyer in the world at the time of Ruby’s trial, but he had no experience in criminal cases, Shaw said. He calls Belli’s defense strategy ludicrous, aimed only at making sure Ruby did not testify and discrediting him as a lunatic. Shaw said that during the trial, Belli told his chauffeur, “The Ruby case is fixed. ... I’m just going through the motions. ... It’s a whitewash.” For 50 years, investigators have missed the clues from Belli’s connection, Shaw said. They’ve also glossed over the mob’s hatred for Robert Kennedy. Using more than 40 new firsthand accounts, Shaw painstakingly connects the dots to the people who wanted JFK dead and their motive — getting even with the president’s father and brother.

In 1960, he contends, Joseph Kennedy “called in some markers from the Mafia” to win the presidential election for his son. In return, he promised the mobsters they would be left alone. But instead, Joseph Kennedy forced JFK to appoint his brother as attorney Shaw general, Shaw said. Robert Kennedy then declared war on the mob and Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa. “They felt like Joe Kennedy had betrayed them,” Shaw said. “Joe Kennedy messed with the wrong people, and you can’t do that with those guys. He lost his son over it, and I think he knew it. I’m sure Bobby knew it.” The book quotes Robert Kennedy telling an aide on the day of the assassination: “I though they would get one of us … I thought it would be me.” One mobster, Marcello, had a stronger motive than anyone

to get revenge on Robert Kennedy, who had him deported temporarily1, Shaw said. He believes the mob decided, “If you kill Bobby Kennedy, Jack Kennedy will come after you with everything the government has.” But if they murdered the president, Robert Kennedy would be powerless to continue his anti-Mafia campaign. Shaw does not try to explain how Lee Harvey Oswald became the mob’s assassin. He focuses on how the underworld chose Ruby to silence Oswald by shooting him in the Dallas police station. “I’m going to have a tough time with the media with this,” Shaw predicted about the reception for his book. “Attacking the Kennedys — it’s not going to be very popular.” However, Shaw said, “You reap what you shall sow, and that’s what happened to Joe Kennedy.” DAVE KURTZ is the executive editor of KPC Media Group newspapers.

Voter fraud is a fraud Hardly anyone noticed last spring when Jon Husted, the Republican Secretary of State in Ohio, issued a report on the 2012 election. Out of 5.63 million ballots cast in that state, he identified 135 possible cases of voter fraud. Those aren’t proven cases, just possible. Even so, that comes to a fraud COKIE ROBERTS maximum rate of .002397 or one STEVEN ROBERTS percent, case for every 41,704 voters. The real rate is probably much lower, since allegations of fraud “almost always prove to be inflated or inaccurate,” according to the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law School. These figures show once again an undeniable fact. Election fraud is not — repeat NOT — a significant problem in this country. As the Brennan Center, which tracks the issue closely, puts it: “Voter fraud — votes knowingly cast by ineligible individuals — is exceedingly rare; one is more likely to be struck by lightning than to commit voter fraud.” And yet Republican governors and legislators refuse to recognize this reality. In the name of combatting a nonexistent problem, they continue to pass laws that make it harder for citizens to vote. But then the pretext of voter fraud is, well, just a fraud. The real reason for these laws is completely obvious. Republicans want to limit the impact of groups that tend to vote for Democrats: the young, the poor, and racial minorities. During last fall’s election, a Republican official in Pennsylvania admitted what Al Gore might call an “inconvenient truth:” Election law changes had one goal — electing Mitt Romney president. Steve Schmidt, a former strategist for John McCain, made the same point on MSNBC: “Voting fraud … doesn’t really exist when you look deeply at the question. It’s part of the mythology now in the Republican Party that there’s widespread voter fraud across the country. In fact, there’s not.” That’s why it was so important for Attorney General Eric Holder to file suit against a package of laws signed in August by North Carolina’s Republican governor, Pat McCrory. One law requires voters to show a photo ID. Others shorten the period for early voting by a week, end same-day registration, and reject any ballots that are cast in the wrong polling place. For close to 50 years, seven states and parts of four others, including North Carolina, were covered by the Voting Rights Act and had to pre-clear changes in election law with the Justice Department

Election fraud is not — repeat NOT — a significant problem in this country.

• or a federal court. But after the Supreme Court threw out the “pre-clearance” provision last spring, North Carolina was one of several states that moved quickly to enact new restrictions. The court, however, kept intact a separate section of the act that allows Justice to challenge voting rules that deliberately discriminate based on race. Intentional bias is hard to prove, but Holder insists the Feds can meet the test. “The Justice Department,” he said, “expects to show that the clear and intended effects of these changes would contract the electorate and result in unequal access to participation in the political process on account of race.” Statistics reinforce Holder’s claim. Blacks comprise 22 percent of the North Carolina electorate but 34 percent of those without government-issued IDs. They also account for 41 percent of voters who used same-day registration, and 29 percent of early voters. A case can be made for a photo ID rule, as long as the rule is reasonable. (Texas’ law, for example, is not reasonable, since a gun permit counts but a student ID does not.) But there is absolutely no connection between preventing fraud and limiting early voting days. Or ending same-day registration. Dale Ho of the American Civil Liberties Union is completely correct in telling USA Today, “North Carolina is engaging in a blatant attempt to make it harder for hundreds of thousands of eligible voters to cast a ballot.” In recent years, Republicans have out-worked Democrats on governor and state legislative races, and as a result they’ve been able to draw favorable Congressional districts that maximize their political leverage. Democratic House candidates won about 1.3 million more votes than their Republican opponents last year, but the GOP still captured a 33-seat majority. Their ability to shut down the government is a direct result of their shrewd strategy. Winning elections, however, does not give the majority absolute power. They should not be able to use their victories to undermine democracy and restrict the right to vote. That’s unfair and un-American. But that’s precisely what Republicans are doing in North Carolina, and the courts should stop them. COKIE ROBERTS AND STEVEN V. ROBERTS are columnists for Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

AUBURN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dawn Bale credits the farmers market in Auburn for leading her to make Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Jam, a line of gourmet jams specializing in spicy flavors. Bale sold jalapenos at the farmers market and a customer asked if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever tried to make pepper jelly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just having a conversation,â&#x20AC;? Bale said, and the idea sparked an interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to make stuff that everyone else makes,â&#x20AC;? she said. She found jam recipes and from her first batch she sold out within 20 minutes. After working from her home for several years and developing what she calls a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultâ&#x20AC;? following, Bale moved her operations in September to a storefront at the Westedge Mall in Auburn. She has nearly 27 gourmet jams, ranging from jalapeno flavored to chipotle. The spice level runs from mild to hot to the very hottest. Her hottest jam, Hurricane Contraband, is made with ghost pepper and tropical fish.


Dawn Bale started Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Jam in 2009, after a farmers market customer encouraged her to make pepper jelly. Bale opened a storefront at the Westedge Mall in Auburn this September, specializing in gourmet jams.

Ghost pepper is the one hottest peppers on the market, Bale said. The peppers are grown in Florida and sundried in Oregon. Two area restaurants, Mad Anthony Tap Room in Auburn and Captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabin in Angola use her product in their specialty dishes. Mad Anthony Tap Room uses her tart cherry

jalapeno jam for a gourmet sandwich and Captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabin uses a flavor for a smoked pork chop special. Bale recommends recipes to customers, and often theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll share with her how they used the jam. While the jams started as appetizers for bricks of cheese and crackers, Bale said customers use them for grilling and cooking.

For some children and adults, silent danger lurks in schools, on airplanes, in restaurants and other public areas. One in 13 children under the age of 18 suffers from food allergies. Food allergies can cause anaphylaxis and can be fatal. Food sensitivities can make a person sick, but are not fatal. SEE ALLERGIES, PAGE C2

REECE HUNT, 8, OF AUBURN: Food allergies (peanuts, tree nuts and egg), environmental allergies and animal allergies (horses, cats, dogs, cows).

His mother said, “We avoid all restaurants that serve peanut products because of risk of cross contamination. When we do eat at restaurants, there is a discussion with the server or many times the manager letting them know the severity of the allergy situation. We must avoid events at places such as the coliseum or Tin Caps stadium because shelled peanuts are served and often discarded on the floor/ground, this means no ball games, no circus etc. Hand sanitizer and/or disinfecting wipes are necessities. No one in our immediate family eats peanut products as it would not be safe to be around Reece afterwards. “We use a peanut butter substitute called Wow Butter. “Flying on an airplane is not considered safe for Reece at this point due to the recycled air in the cabin and the fact that others on the plane could open a product containing peanuts. Also many airlines continue to serve an in flight snack of peanuts. Reece is unable to attend school here as the school system was not willing to make necessary adjustments to ensure his safety.

JONATHON KANE, 17, OF KENDALLVILLE: Peanut food allergy

To deal with my peanut allergy, I do a number of things. First, I always carry an Epi Pen with me in case of an emergency. Second, I check the labels on almost every food product I eat, especially desserts. Third, I rarely eat at parties or other places where I do not know the composition of the food being served. Last, when I doubt, I never eat the food in question. If there is even a remote chance of the food containing peanuts, I stay away from it.

• State recommends or requires that districts or schools use IPM techniques or ban the use of pesticides inside school whenever students are in the building. • State has implemented or actively promotes diesel school bus engine retrofitting program. In 2010, Indiana enacted a law establishing and indoor air quality inspection, evaluation and employee and parent notification program to assist schools in improving indoor air quality.

‘Breaking Bad’ finale vs. other finales



CADEN, 6, AND MADISON CRAIG, 3, OF FORT WAYNE: C M Multiple food allergies and sensitivities for Caden and food se sensitivities for Madison

Allergies are a big part of Kim Craig’s life. The Fort Wayne mother has a daughter with food sensitivities and a son, Caden, 6, with food sensitivities and allergies. He eats a four-day rotational diet in order to heal his digestive system. “We are gradually adding food back in to his diet, beginning with the foods of least sensitivity first,” Craig said. Craig, a certified health coach, often updates her Facebook page (Kim Craig Wellness) with tips, articles, and recipes that are allergy friendly. Also go to

East Noble uses individual health care plans Jessica James, a school nurse with East Noble School Corp., said East Noble has procedures to follow if a student has a food allergy. “We send home an individual health care plan that parents fill out and we follow that plan,” she said. “Some students bring in Epi Pens and or Benadryl to keep at school just in case they would need them. If they don’t bring those items, we do have emergency Benadryl we can give. “We also let their teachers and cafeteria

managers know of the allergy and what symptoms to look for. If the student would go on a field trip, we train a staff member on the student’s care plan and how to give the Epi Pen just in case it would be needed.” James said some of the symptoms to be aware of are vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea, hives, swelling, sneezing, a runny nose, asthma or difficulty breathing, fainting, low blood pressure, heart rhythm disturbance and swelling of the eyes, skin, tongue or throat.


A recipe for success at school Jan Hanson, founder of Educating for Food Allergies and author of the new book “Food Allergies: A Recipe for Success at School,” has created a plan for creating a safe and happy school environment for all kids.

NEW YORK (AP) — Now that the dust (and ricin) have settled from Sunday’s “Breaking Bad” finale, it’s worth considering what makes a drama series’ exit good or bad. As much as fans may miss “Breaking Bad,” they were able to bid farewell satisfied that it met its obligations at the end no less than it did every week from the first episode. “Breaking Bad” left the air with a finale that stands alongside the best ever, inventively tying up five seasons of narrative loose ends. Now what about a bad finale? Easy: “Dexter,” which aired the week before. It was disappointing, full of holes and a disservice to a series that, against all odds, managed to make a sociopathic serial killer attractive and believable to viewers for eight slice-anddice seasons. The finale was a contrivance meant to drag the series to the finish line. In only that respect did it succeed. But not every worthwhile series even gets a finale. In 2010, “Law & Order” concluded after 20 seasons and some 450 episodes missing a proper goodbye or opportunity for closure. Though it was largely episodic, without the serialized through-line many dramas trade on epically, “Law & Order” and its viewers were denied the ceremony they were due at the end. Similarly, “Deadwood” fans still grouse that HBO pulled the plug in 2006 after its three seasons with no finale or, despite vague promises by the network, a movie that could wrap up this rich, complex frontier saga. The finale for “House,” though hardly at the level of

best-ever, did right by this medical series when it aired in 2012 after an eight-season run. The quirky, pill-popping Dr. House was facing jail for a prank gone wrong as well as the demise of his cancerridden best friend. He faked his own death to evade arrest, then he and Wilson rode into the sunset on their motorcycles. The perfect getaway. The perfect ending. No finale was more wickedly perfect than that of “The Shield,” aired in 2008. Detective Vic Mackey, its brutish anti-hero, received a fate worse than death or any prison term: the loss of authority as well as his family into witness protection, and a desk job as part of his immunity agreement. Not only an honest tearjerker, the finale of “Six Feet Under” in 2005 was flawlessly in synch with the series’ sensibility. A drama about a funeral home, it had been a five-season meditation on life and death. Fittingly, the finale tracked the life and eventual death of its family of characters. The moral was clear and beautifully drawn: No one is immune. Or course, some finales leave viewers scratching their heads as much as nodding them with pleasure. After six seasons and 120 episodes, “Lost” left the air in 2010 with a rapturous close that provided more comfort and inspiration than hard answers. For one last time, viewers were obliged to get lost in the many dimensions of “Lost,” and did. On its own oblique terms, it worked. But there was no more jaw-dropping finish to a show than that of “St. Elsewhere,” a pioneering, often mordantly funny hospital drama a quarter-century ago. On the night of May 25, 1988, viewers learned that the series’ entire six-season run

had been a figment of an autistic child’s imagination. His snow globe containing a toy replica of the hospital was seen in the series’ final shot. If that ending fueled debate, its scale and intensity was nothing compared to the uproar after “The Sopranos” cut to black in June 2007. An argument can still be sparked among “Sopranos” fans over What That Ending Meant: Was the nervous implication (that Tony Soprano was about to be whacked as he dined with his family in a local restaurant) carried out after the screen went dark? Or had Tony, glancing up, just been acknowledging his daughter Meadow’s entrance? Was the scene one of brilliant ambiguity (life goes on, whether or not TV keeps showing it to viewers), or a screwing-around-with-theaudience cop-out? After all this time, no resolution has ever been arrived at, while, ever since that historic blackout, conflicting views have only hardened. “The Sopranos” got flack (and praise) for an inconclusive ending, and still does. The furious debate proves how good it was. “Breaking Bad” (a vastly different show in nearly every way) chose a different kind of ending: Display the complete puzzle with the pieces all in place, letting viewers at last see everything with clarity. Good finales are recalled and spur conversation for years, as that of “Breaking Bad” is likely to do. Meanwhile, future finales are eagerly awaited, long before viewers are ready to turn loose of the series. For instance, “Mad Men”: What will be Don Draper’s destiny? We’ve got two years to wonder.

the thrill of performing to help him through a diagnosis of Hodgkins lymphoma (he started treatment in April). The band hit the road this summer for a monthlong tour that wrapped in July. “We’ve actually been able to work through it,” said Campbell. “We did the shows in Europe while I was doing chemo … and mentally that was a big part of my recovery.” “I’m glad I had the opportunity to work through it instead of stay at home and feel sorry for myself,” he added. After more than 30 years together, Def Leppard isn’t slowing down for cancer — or anything else. Fans can get a front-row seat to see the band at local cineplexes on Wednesday and again next week in “Def Leppard Viva! Hysteria Concert.” Filmed during a Las Vegas residency earlier this year, it shows the quintet doing something unprecedented: performing the 1987 mega-hit album, “Hysteria,” live from start to finish.

“It was fun, actually, and a totally different way of doing it,” said guitarist Phil Collen. “It was a different dynamic doing the album in full, and it was much more theatrical.” Part of the theatrics came in the form of Ded Flatbird. Singer Joe Elliott suggested the band open for itself during its first-ever Vegas residency, but do it as a fake cover band. “We would actually go out and pretend to be Ded Flatbird, who were supposedly the greatest Def Leppard cover band in the world,” said Campbell. “Joe gave us all aliases. We became different characters, and as the shows progressed, we kind of developed those personalities a little bit more, and that was a fun part of the show… “Then, of course, the curtain reveal and it’s Def Leppard doing ‘Hysteria.’” Ded Flatbird performed nightly during the nine-show engagement, playing obscure material from the early days of Def Leppard and other tracks apart from the “Hysteria” album.

Group alleges class endorses atheism

Upcoming Concerts

MUNCIE (AP) — Ball State University’s president told a Seattle group that promotes the anti-evolution theory of “intelligent design” that the school will review its complaint that one of its classes is an endorsement of atheism. President Jo Ann Gora notified the Discovery Institute that it would review its “Dangerous Ideas” class in a letter sent Monday, The Star Press reported. “Our intent is to ensure that their content and pedagogy reflect the highest academic standards,” Gora wrote. Believers in intelligent design say the theory is based on scientific evidence that suggests the universe and evolution couldn’t have developed by chance and that supernatural forces were at play. Opponents say it is just another name for creationism, which teaches that the Old Testament story that the world was created in seven days is true. A federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled in 2005 that intelligent design and creationism are the same thing. The think tank challenged the appropriateness of the “Dangerous Ideas” course after Gora told an atheist organization that had objected to another Ball State class that the teaching of “intelligent design” and creationism isn’t appropriate for science courses. The “Dangerous Ideas” course uses “What is Your Dangerous Idea?” as its textbook. The think tank says the textbook declares that “science must destroy religion” and that “scientists should function as our ‘high priests.’” The complaints are the latest in a series of religionbased flaps at the 18,000student university since this summer. Ball State was criticized in July for hiring astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, who wrote a book arguing that the conditions that produced life on Earth suggest an intelligent design. The hiring came after another professor at the school was accused of teaching creationism. John West, vice president of the Discovery Institute, said Ball State continued to “stonewall by refusing to answer basic questions that have been raised about its potential violations of the law, the federal and Indiana constitutions, and its own guarantees of academic freedom and due process.”

ADVICE â&#x20AC;˘


Skeletons Try a homemade pumpkin roll in familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closet cause turmoil â&#x20AC;˘


Jeanne Phillips

DEAR ABBY: I am the oldest of four children. I grew up in a family that looked perfect from the outside, but was far from it. My parents tried to shield us from most of the problems, but because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the oldest, I remember a lot. My parents both had affairs. My siblings recently learned about the affair Dad had because Mom told them, but they have no idea about the one Mom had. Because of this, my brother hardly speaks to Dad. Mom was diagnosed with a mental disorder when I was a child. I remember her violent outbursts. I know Dad stayed only for us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all adults now, and my parents are divorced. My mother plays the victim and my brother blames Dad for everything. It breaks my heart. I have tried to convince Mom to stop trying to hurt Dad through my brother, but she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. I want my family to be able to attend milestones without turmoil. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to make this better. Please help. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; DOESNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T WANT THE TURMOIL DEAR DOESNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T: Making this better may take the help of a licensed professional and some family counseling â&#x20AC;&#x201D; provided everyone is willing to cooperate. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count on your mother. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be interested in healing any breaches. I do think, however, that because you are all adults, your siblings should know the entire story about your parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; infidelities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly your brother, so his relationship with Dad can be repaired. DEAR ABBY: Our son recently told us he will be proposing to his girlfriend before Christmas. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy for him, but concerned that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to get married next year, which will be our 25th anniversary. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to celebrate our 25th the way we want to and help with their expensive wedding. We have been planning this for years, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to sacrifice our celebration for their plans. We think they should either postpone the wedding or pay for it themselves. We have always taken care of our son, but we feel 2014 is â&#x20AC;&#x153;ourâ&#x20AC;? time. Are we wrong, and how can we tell him without feeling guilty? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; PARENTS OF THE FUTURE GROOM DEAR PARENTS: While you have always taken care of your son, he is an adult now and you should be able to communicate with him on an adult level. Tell him how pleased you are that he and his girlfriend are planning to be married, but that you will be unable to contribute financially because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re celebrating your 25th in 2014 and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to do both. Not all couples marry soon after becoming engaged. Some wait a year or longer, and more and more couples pay for their own weddings these days, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel guilty.

Sunday morning turned out to be nice and sunny although a bit on the chilly side. Friends and family attended our church services at Jacob and Emmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, in honor of baptismal services being held for Mose, Susan and Elizabeth. Jacob had two bench wagons there so he would have plenty of benches to set up. It was a good thing he had prepared. The big tool shed was filled with people by the time services started at 9 a.m. People attended from South Holland, Ill.; Hicksville, Ohio; several towns in Indiana including Grabill, Shipshewana, Middlebury, Berne, LaGrange and Nappanee, and Hersey and Charlotte, Mich. There were also people from surrounding church districts in this area. Taking a rough estimate I would think about 350 were in attendance. The three young souls were taken into the confession of faith by Bishop Sam Bontrager from Nappanee. Sam would be a great-uncle to Mose. Nineteen ministers were in attendance as well. We appreciate all the support and encouragement that was given by being there for these three young people taking such a wonderful step in life. May God continue to be their guide in everything they do. And how blessed we are to have a savior such as Jesus Christ who died on the cross for all our sins. Lunch was served to everyone afterwards. We served 17 tables of people.

Eight tables were set at a time. In between, the settings were quickly washed by all the willing helpers so they could be reused. A lot of the children were fed in the house where Emma had a 12-quart kettle of chicken noodle soup ready. On the lunch menu was THE homemade wheat and AMISH white bread COOK (of which Emma had 75 loaves Lovina Eicher brought in by the church women), bologna, cheese, tomato slices, peanut butter spread, hot pepper butter, dill pickles, freezer pickles, red beets, strawberry jam, butter, coffee, tea and various kinds of cookies. They were well prepared and we had plenty of food for everyone. It was a lot of work to prepare for a big service like this, which Jacob and Emma and family so willingly did. After dishes were all washed popcorn was served to anyone still there. Emma had invited quite a crowd back for supper so some of the people decided to stay all afternoon. I was taking some of my containers out to the buggy so they would be out of the way when someone came to get me saying


daughter Verena is choking on popcorn. After several of us tried to retrieve the popcorn we noticed she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t choking but she was losing her breath, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk or walk. The EMS was called and she was taken to the hospital. The EMS men thought at first she could be having a seizure but after treating her for one she still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act different. After taking some tests and x-rays the doctor said she was dehydrated and under a lot of stress which might have led into an anxiety attack when she kind of choked on the popcorn. After being able to talk, Verena told us her chest starting hurting really bad and she was hardly able to breath so she wanted to go for a drink of water but fell, not being able to help herself anymore. How blessed we felt to be able to bring her home after they gave her some IV fluids. Joe and I spent the evening at the hospital. The children ate supper at Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. They had quite a few people there for supper. Too bad it had to turn out this way that we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be there, but Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ways are not our ways.

Investing in bank shares can be hit and miss DEAR BRUCE: Do you think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wise for someone to buy bank shares in this hurting economy? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; L.S., via email DEAR L.S.: If you are very knowledgeable, it may be that there are some good bank shares worth considering. We are talking about many banks. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take them one at a time. The big ones and the large regional banks oftentimes are decent buys. Banking rules very much


favor them, and they can manipulate the rules in ways that small banks can only dream of. Small neighborhood banks (there are around 8,000 in the country) are not places where I would choose to invest. In most, but not all cases, the shares are depreciated, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any immediate recovery in their future. With that being observed, you have to consider each individual bank on its own merits. On balance, the small banks are recovering and eventually the shares may reach the plateaus they were at just a few years ago. But I would not have much interest in that type of an investment. You have to examine them and see which one suits your needs. DEAR BRUCE: I have a property worth approximately $100,000. When I shopped around to purchase homeowners insurance from four different national carriers, the replacement costs ranged from $200,000

to $250,000. Why are they so high compared to the actual value, and how can I get this cost lowered? My premium is based on this amount. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; K.S., via email DEAR K.S.: I understand where you could be confused. are SMART You trying to MONEY find out why the assessed value of your Bruce Williams property is so much less than the replacement cost. That should be pretty obvious. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say the building is assessed at $100,000. It is probably worth more than that because most properties are worth more than the assessed value. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth $150,000 to sell it,

Stocking up when vegan


0% FOR 42 * MONTHS 25



Dear Sara: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not an ethical vegan, but I have been eating vegan for health reasons. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t currently stockpile, but I eventually need to start doing so. In the past, I went about stockpiling in a very haphazard manner and ended up stocking stuff I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to eat. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just curious what is high on your list of must-haves. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tena, Nevada Dear Tena: You can freeze fresh fruits and vegetables, or even meals, for that matter. To start out, stock items such as pasta, oats, rice, lentils, tortillas, dried and canned beans, vegetables and fruit, soup, nuts and seeds, crackers, spaghetti sauce, salad dressing, salsa, baking supplies and cereal. Dear Sara: Is a Dutch oven a good investment? Can the enamel ones be used over open flames, or is that just for the cast-iron ones? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; S.M., email Dear S.M.: I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a good investment if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll use it. I own a Le Creuset enamel-over-cast-iron one. It was pricey, but I use it a lot. The enamel type canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be used on an open fire. You

can find them at yard sales, estate sales, auctions and thrift stores, so I would check there first. Dear Sara: When making double or triple batches of something (one to cook now and one or two to freeze for later), how do you wrap it so that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get freezer burn, without using zip-close bags or plastic wrap or leaving it in its original container? FRUGAL For LIVING example: meatloaf. I like to make three Sara Noel at a time; I cook one and freeze the other two in the original loaf pan, then I remove them and store them in zip-close bags. When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready to use them, I can pop them right back into the loaf pan I originally froze them in, then I put the pan in the fridge to thaw. But this can


be problematic, because I use my loaf pans for breads, cakes, etc., so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them all in the freezer. The only alternative that comes to mind is aluminum foil (which I would wash and reuse) or wax paper. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for ideas that might save on the cost. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; S.P., Louisiana Dear S.P.: You can buy reusable plastic storage containers. I use freezer storage bags or reusable containers. Sometimes I freeze them in a muffin tin, too. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer bag and then you can microwave them instead of baking in the oven. I like the smaller portions because my meatloaf doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dry out when reheated, but you could just as easily slice your meatloaf and freeze it, or freeze your meatloaf mixture raw.

Daydreams at Disney focus on ‘super-power’ apps There are several things I could not live without: food, water, oxygen, etc. But there are many non-essential things that come in handy so much that I almost cannot imagine living without them. At the top of this list is my smart phone, which is an iPhone right now. It could or has taken the place of about a dozen things that I use frequently. It allows me mobility while I stay in touch with some of the world around me. It offers me resources, such as medical references, almost immediately that were nearly impossible to manage just a few years ago. On the other hand, my iPhone and its big brother, the iPad, have led me down a path that makes me think I can write this column from anywhere, at any time. So, here I sit, next to the pool at a Walt Disney World resort, writing to you.

What more could I want? Being the obsessive-compulsive person that I am, I will tell you a few things that are still lacking in my life that would make it better. The first thing on the list is a DR. TERRY recording device GAFF that would document the things I want it to, with a built-in editing tool. It would keep track of everything I see, hear and do while I am working, instead of me needing to summarize every patient visit into a computer. While I know that Google glasses and other products are trying to take on this challenge, they seem to need the things they

record to be reality. What I want is for the device to record my perception of reality. There would need to be a filing system to take me back to previous information about the person instantly. But it would need to be in a summary form, so all the data I need would be there, with none of the confusing extra stuff. Providing this would be the job of the editing tool I mentioned earlier. I would also like X-ray eyes. It would be so handy to look into a patient and see what is going wrong without needing to send them off to someone else to produce images and interpret them. Of course, they would not really be X-ray eyes, because I would not want to expose patients to all of that potentially damaging radiation. The images would need to be produced safely

“An app that would let me see into the future … would be able to tell that a treatment plan will give the desired result, instead of making the “educated guess” that I am presently stuck with offering.” Dr. Terry Gaff

• and only when I really needed them. Perhaps even more important would be the ability to look into the thoughts of each patient and know what they actually feel instead of needing to guess what they mean when they say that their pain is a 12 on a scale from one to 10. It would also tell me when patients are lying to me in order to manipulate me into prescribing the wrong treatment for them. This tool would also be very handy

in the process of raising teenagers. Of course, an app that would let me see into the future would also be very nice. Then, I would be able to tell that a treatment plan will give the desired result, instead of making the “educated guess” that I am presently stuck with offering to each patient I see. There are other “killer apps” that I would like to have, just as I would like to have some of the super-powers I see in comic

books and movies. However, with great power, comes great responsibility and if everyone had the powers I want, I would no longer have the job that I love. I wrote this wish list not because I want to be a god, but because it seems like I am asked to do the tasks outlined here with the imperfect mind, body and energy that I am blessed with. Until someone develops something new, you and I will struggle along together with our educated guesses. Now, it is time to go wake up my wife and get back to the vacation time I promised her. DR.

Schools criticized for bans on dreadlocks, Afros BY LEANNE ITALIE Associated Press

“Why are you so sad?” a TV reporter asked the little girl with a bright pink bow in her hair. “Because they didn’t like my dreads,” she sobbed, wiping her tears. “I think that they should let me have my dreads.” With those words, secondgrader Tiana Parker of Tulsa, Okla., found herself, at age 7, at the center of decades of debate over standards of black beauty, cultural pride and freedom of expression. It was no isolated incident at the predominantly black Deborah Brown Community School, which in the face of outrage in late August apologized and rescinded language banning dreadlocks, Afros, mohawks and other “faddish” hairstyles it had called unacceptable and potential health hazards. A few weeks earlier, another charter school, the Horizon Science Academy in Lorain, Ohio, sent a draft policy home to parents that proposed a ban on “Afro-puffs and small twisted braids.” It, too, quickly apologized and withdrew the wording. But at historically black Hampton University in Hampton, Va., the dean of the business school has defended and left in place a 12-year-old prohibition on dreadlocks and cornrows for male students in a leadership seminar for MBA candidates, saying the look is not businesslike. Tiana’s father, barber student Terrance Parker, said he and his wife chose not to change her style and moved the straight-A student to a different public school, where she now happily sings songs about her hair with friends. “I think it stills hurts her. But the way I teach my kids is regardless of what people say, you be yourself and you be happy with who you are and how God made you,” he said. Tiana added: “I like my new school better.” As for the thousands of emails and phone calls of support the family has received from around the world, she said she feels “cared about.” Deborah Brown, the school’s founder, did not return a call from The Associated Press. Jayson Bendik, dean of students at Horizon in Lorain, said in an email that “our word choice was a mistake.” In New York City, the dress code at 16-year-old Dante de Blasio’s large public high school in Brooklyn includes no such hair restrictions. Good thing for Dante, whose large Afro is hard to miss at campaign stops and in a TV spot for his father, Bill de Blasio, who is running for mayor. There is no central

clearinghouse for local school board policies on hairstyles, or surveys indicating whether such rules are widespread. Regardless, mothers of color and black beauty experts consider the controversies business as usual. “Our girls are always getting messages that tell them that they are not good enough, that they don’t look pretty enough, that their skin isn’t light enough, that their hair isn’t long enough, that their hair isn’t blond enough,” said Beverly Bond of the New York-based esteem-building group Black Girls Rock. “The public banning of our hair or anything about us that looks like we look, it feels like it’s such a step backward.” Bond founded the organization in response to an episode in 2007 when radio host Don Imus called members of the Rutgers women’s basketball team “nappy-headed hos.” He later apologized. In Chicago, Leila Noelliste has been blogging about natural hair at for about five years. She has followed the school cases closely. The 28-year-old mother with a natural hairstyle and a year-old son said it is a touchy issue among African-Americans and others. “This is the way the hair grows out of my head, yet it’s even shocking in some black communities, because we’ve kind of been told culturally that to be acceptable and to make other people kind of comfortable with the way that we look, we should straighten our hair, whether through heat or chemicals,” she said. “So whether we’re in non-black communities or black communities, with our natural hair, we stand out. It evokes a lot of reaction.” Particularly painful, said Noelliste, is the notion that natural styles are not hygienic.


Indigo Wren Strawn, Fayetteville, Ark., watches a cutout of Alice, from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” grow from the neck up at a library exhibit entitled “The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter,” on display at the New York Public

Library, Monday, in New York. The library released a list of 100 great children’s books from the last hundred years. “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” is not among the 100 recommended titles because it is more than 100 years old.

N.Y.C. library offers list of 100 great children’s books NEW YORK (AP) — Beloved authors Judy Blume and Eric Carle helped the New York Public Library celebrate children’s literature Monday as the library released a list of 100 great books from the last 100 years. The list includes picture books for preschoolers as well as books for older readers like “The Hobbit” and “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” “The Cat in the Hat,” ”Pippi Longstocking” and “Where the Wild Things Are” all made the list, which accompanies an exhibit on children’s literature at the library’s main building in midtown Manhattan. Blume and Carle joined librarians for a reading and


panel discussion. “Viewed over time, children’s books are the collected memory of our hopes and dreams,” said moderator Leonard Marcus, a book critic and the curator of the exhibit. “They are the message in a bottle that each generation tosses out to the next generation in the hope that it may wash ashore and be read and be taken to heart.” Blume, whose “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing” is on the list, said that when she was in the fourth grade herself she always had stories

in her head. “But I never told anybody about them because I thought if I did they would think I was weird,” she said. Since Blume began publishing in the 1970s, many of her books dealing with subjects like racism, divorce and sexuality have been banned by authorities who considered the topics inappropriate for children. “Books that are loved by children are often the books that scare adults,” Blume said. Carle made the library’s list with “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” his 1969 picture book about a voracious bug that becomes a butterfly. He said he created the caterpillar by folding and manipulating paper; he first thought of the

character as a bookworm, Willie the Worm. “And I had this wonderful editor and she didn’t like the worm so much,” Carle said. Students from Public School 41 in Greenwich Village and Our Lady Queen of Angels School in East Harlem sat up front as the two authors read from their work. Fourth-grader Brianna Astacio of Our Lady Queen of Angels said Blume’s “Double Fudge” was her favorite book because “it’s funny.” Carle read his brand-new book, “Friends,” about a boy who swims across a river and climbs a mountain in search of his friend. Spoiler alert: He finds her.

Study: Most twins can be born without a C-section THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Expecting twins? You probably don’t need to schedule a cesarean section. Most moms can safely give birth without surgery, a big study finds. It’s the latest research to question the need for C-sections, which are done in one-third of all births in the United States and three-fourths of those involving twins. Studies increasingly are challenging long-held beliefs about cesareans, such as that women who had one need to deliver future babies the

same way. Now doctors are looking hard at C-sections for twin births, which are on the rise because of infertility treatments. Twins have more risk for birth complications and some studies suggest C-sections lower that risk, but this had not been put to a rigorous test. Dr. Jon Barrett of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto, led a study in 25 countries of 2,800 women pregnant with twins. All of the first of the twins to be delivered were in good position for birth (most

doctors still recommend a C-section if the first twin is in feet-first or breech position). Half of the moms were scheduled to have C-sections and the rest, vaginal births. About 40 percent of the latter group wound up having C-sections, and 10 percent of those scheduled to have cesareans ended up giving birth vaginally. About 2 percent of newborns died or had a serious problem, but the manner of birth made no difference. Nor did it affect the rate of complications in moms.

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research paid for the study. Results are in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine. “These results do not indicate that all sets of twins should be delivered vaginally,” but that planning to do so is a reasonable choice if the doctor is experienced in twin births and knows when a C-section becomes necessary, Dr. Michael Greene of Massachusetts General Hospital wrote in a commentary in the journal.

Terrifying ‘Gravity’ a filmmaking triumph As much as I love science fiction, and as much as I support scientific exploration of the universe, the idea of outer space scares me.

I actually got a little dizzy during a few scenes — there is a lot of spinning in the movie. There’s also something both beautiful and distressing about the way that director Alfonso Cuaron shoots every frame of this movie. There are many close-ups of the main characters that suddenly move to become immense wide shots that show the stifling infinity of space. He shoots from inside helmets that are fogging up as the astronauts pant in panic, despite the fact that each breath is closer to suffocating. And Cuaron uses long takes of many of the most uncomfortable scenes, ratcheting the tension up to almost unbearable levels. But “Gravity” is one of those movies that is well worth the discomfort. It’s an incredibly compelling character drama first and foremost, featuring spectacular performances by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Bullock, especially, shines as we watch her Dr. Ryan Stone blossom from scared first-time spacewalker to a terrified but strong woman determined to get back to Earth. We know very little about Ryan, although she does share a few heartbreaking details with her mission partner, but we don’t need to know every detail. Her story is written in Bullock’s every gesture, facial expression and movement. She has done a lot of good acting work in the past, but this is Bullock at her best. “Gravity” is not necessarily the most entertaining movie I’ve seen

New York museum features LOVE artist’s retrospective NEW YORK (AP) — Artist Robert Indiana says love hurt him. Love, as in his world-famous LOVE image — stacked letters with a tilted O — that became a symbol of the “make love, not war” 1960s counterculture revolution. That one image eclipsed all his other work. But now the artist’s first major retrospective titled “Robert Indiana: Beyond LOVE” at the Whitney Museum of American Art that opened Thursday could change that. “It’s a dream come true, a little late,” Indiana, who turned 85 this month, said in an interview at the museum last week surrounded by 95 works he created over the past five decades. The image both “blessed and cursed” him, said Barbara Haskell, the exhibition’s curator. It’s so famous and so ubiquitous — reproduced on everything from coffee cups to T-shirts without Indiana’s permission — that “it has obscured the depth and breadth of everything else he did.” His paintings and sculptures are filled with images of highway signs, roulette wheels, circles, stars within circles, numbers and simple words — Eat, Die, Hug. “The subtext of what he does is very profound. He really touches on issues of survival, forgiveness, love and racial injustice,” Haskell said. Indiana, who sat in a wheelchair but mostly uses a cane, said a favorite piece in the show is his monumental diptych EAT/DIE, an homage to his mother whose dying words to him were “Have you had enough to eat?” he said. Born Robert Clark in 1928, Indiana changed his name in 1958 in honor of his

He was closely associated with the leading pop artists of the 1960s and first received acclaim when Alfred Barr, director of the Museum of Modern Art, purchased his “American Dream 1” in 1961. But Haskell said Indiana’s work is more conceptually layered than that of a Roy Lichtenstein comic book image or an Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe silkscreen. “There are myriad interpretations you can make on any one of his works.” Among his earliest works are anthropomorphic figures made from wood salvaged from warehouses that were being torn down in his lower Manhattan neighborhood in the early 1960s. His themes are American. Some works consist of stenciled lettering that reference words or phrases from classic American literature. Others address

racism as in his powerful Confederacy Series — four paintings in which he uses stars to identify cities where violence occurred during the civil rights movement. But there’s LOVE, too. There’s a LOVE painting in the form of a cross and a small aluminum model that served as a template for all his other LOVE pieces. And there’s the Electric Love, a monumental sculpture with tiny electric lights that move up and down until the entire piece glows — a psychedelic throwback to the days where it all started. Around the globe, there are nine monumental LOVE sculptures, all original, in different colors and some slightly different in size. They are in New York, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Bentonville, Ark., Scottsdale, Ariz., New Orleans, Singapore, Tokyo and Taipei, Taiwan.

People walk past ruins along the Appia Antica, the ancient Roman Appian Way, in Rome. The Ancient Appian Way was built in the fourth century B.C. by the censor Appius Claudius as a road to connect Rome with southern Italy. It’s usually

visited by tourists looking for its early Christian catacombs, but while the catacombs charge admission, a simple walk on the Appia is a wonderful way to feel the city’s past beneath your feet.

Plenty of free things to do in Rome ROME (AP) — Some of Rome’s attractions are among the best-known spots on Earth. Few visitors need to be told to visit the Colosseum or the Trevi Fountain during their stay in the Eternal City. But here’s a list of some other worthwhile things to see and do that tourists may want to add to their itineraries, and the best part is that they won’t cost a dime.

St. Peter’s Square On Sunday mornings when the pope is in Rome, pilgrims, tourists and Romans flock to St. Peter’s Square, intent on glimpsing the pontiff at his studio window as he speaks to the crowd below. Facing the basilica, the window to watch is next-to-last on the top floor of the Apostolic Palace. Just before the pope pokes his head out, a red curtain with the papal seal is hung from the windowsill. Many people carry flags or banners from their home countries or hometowns, giving the square a festive air. Depending on what the pontiff says, the square often erupts in thunderous applause. His appearance starts at noon sharp and lasts about 15 minutes, so don’t be late. The sun and presence of so many bodies can crank up the heat, so water bottles and hats are recommended. Even if the pope’s out of town, the square is a worthwhile destination, with its 17th century colonnade cradling the area like two arms.

The Appian Way The Ancient Appian Way was built in the fourth century B.C. by the censor Appius Claudius

as a road to connect Rome with southern Italy. It’s usually visited by tourists looking for its early Christian catacombs, but while the catacombs charge admission, a simple walk on the Appia is a wonderful way to feel the city’s past beneath your feet. The first part of the road from the center has no sidewalks and is unsuitable for pedestrians, but a good starting point is Cecilia Metella’s tomb, a circular building of the Augustan age built for the daughter of a first-century B.C. consul. In the 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) from there to the city’s outskirts, the road is often paved with its original basaltic blocks, and flanked by fragments of ancient tombs, statues and mausoleums. Cecilia Metella’s tomb can be reached by taking the Metro A line from Termini station to the Colli Albani stop, then riding the No. 660 bus for eight stops. Here you’ll suddenly feel like you’re in the countryside: Cars are rare, with the whole area closed to private traffic on Sundays, and sheep grazing in nearby fields. In summer, you can even pick blackberries from hedges along the way. The road also has modern touches of glamour, since many rich villas are located on the sprawling countryside. In the late 1950s-early ’60s “Dolce Vita” era, several of the villas were frequented by movie stars, and today’s occupants still throw exclusive parties on weekends.

Imperial Forums The Way of the Imperial Forums, the

street leading from Piazza Venezia to the Colosseum, is among the best-known places in Rome. By day, it perfectly represents the Roman Empire’s lost greatness. The arches, temples, and row of statues portraying the emperors all testify to the pride that characterized Roman civilization 2,000 years ago. But tourists who visit in sunlight should consider returning after sunset, when the Forums are transformed into a romantic spot with white, blue and green beams of light coloring the ruins. Lovers are often seen here embracing on the big fragments of columns scattered under the trees along the way.

See three states A villa owned by the Knights of Malta atop the ancient Aventine Hill, at No. 3 on the Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta, has a large entry door with a celebrated keyhole. If you peer through it, you’ll have a perfectly framed view of the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica. Curiously, viewers can see three different states at once: the villa’s garden in the territory of the Sovereign Order of Malta; the Vatican City State, where the Basilica is located, and a small portion of Italy in between. If the weather is pleasant, stroll down the block to a tiny jewel of a park, the Giardino degli Aranci, or Orange Tree Gardens, where you can take in the cityscape and meandering river. It’s especially popular with families on Sundays.

Portland temps the tastebuds J.M. HIRSCH The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. — Getting a great meal in Portland is harder than you’d think. Not for lack of talented chefs creating world-class food. Rather, too many of them. Deciding where to dine among the many contenders can quickly leave you overwhelmed. I know. First-world problem. But it’s true. Portland’s dining scene has such a delicious glut of talented, creative chefs, you may find yourself calculating how many dinners — if one started early — could be jammed into a single evening. Gluttonous, perhaps, but nonetheless the best way to make the most of a short visit. And if you were to attempt said gluttony, consider starting the evening at Gabriel Rucker’s Le Pigeon, where the rustic French-inspired food — including a jerked take on the namesake bird — simply astounds. Le Pigeon is ideal for an early dinner because it’s likely the only way you’ll get in the door. Reservations for this tiny restaurant are tough, but 10 seats at the chef’s bar are reserved for walk-ins. Get there 10 minutes before they open at 5 p.m. and you’ll be good to go. And don’t even think of leaving without getting the foie gras profiteroles for dessert. They are, simply, an intensely rich and decadent dessert that will leave you so very happy. For dinner No. 2, try like mad for a reservation for the 8:45 p.m. seating at Naomi Pomeroy’s Beast, where diners enjoy a six-course prix fixe dinner built around massive flavors and the chef’s penchant for butchering whole animals. The rustic, yet refined menu changes weekly, but you can expect the likes of charcuterie plates with steak tartare and mains of braised pork belly. But what about the rest of the day? While planning your multiple dinners, you’ll probably be walking around

the city. And it would be a shame to do that on an empty stomach. For breakfast, head to Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen, a wonderful ode to the classic Jewish deli. Though they have ample seating and a full — and deliciously tempting menu — consider trying the take-out counter. Spend a moment admiring the wall of vintage-style and artisanal sodas, then move to the deli case. Grab some of the house-cured gravlax to go (sold by the deliciously thin slice). It is savory and salty with a wonderful chew that teases an almost jerky flavor and texture. Don’t be afraid to ask for a sample. There is no shame in eating the gravlax straight up. But you also could get a bagel — the salt bagel would be a delicious choice — or a potato and onion knish. Have them heat the knish for a rich, flaky, yet substantial breakfast. Now take your deli goodies next door to a Portland institution, Stumptown Coffee Roasters. The coffee — particularly when served up as a gorgeous whole milk latte — is as good

as its reputation suggests, smooth, yet bold in a way that a certain national chain could only wish to be. After you grab your coffee, head into the adjoining lobby of the Ace Hotel, where chairs and couches welcome you and an oversized (massively so) coffee table anchors the room. And if the caffeine leaves you feeling feisty, the lobby has a fun old-school photo booth. Ready to explore? Start by crossing the street, where in an architecturally stunning alley-like mall is hidden the tiny candy shop known as Quin. But this is no ordinary sugar load. This is artisanal candy of the highest order, all dreamed up by candy maker Jami Curl and made from local ingredients. Grab a bag of the Jacobsen sea salt caramels (made with Oregon salt by local producer Ben Jacobsen), and maybe some of the strawberry gumdrops. Ready for a rest? Head across the street where you’ll find the amazing indie bookseller Powell’s Books. You could lose yourself — and delightfully so — in here for hours. Or even just long enough until dinner.

Q. What are the benefits of custom cabinets? I have priced both custom cabinets and semi-custom for my kitchen. I plan to remodel and there is a big difference in price and story. — Anthony of Clear Lake A. I’m over simplifying but here are the basics. Cabinets come in three categories: Good, Better, Best. Good cabinets that are designed and made to be low cost will have particle board sides, simple mechanical hardware, veneer finishes and come in very basic sizes. Better cabinets are manufactured with a huge selection of colors, finishes, wood species and sizes. Some lines of cabinets called semi-custom will work with standard sizes where possible for the desired kitchen or bath layout. Then make a few cabinets to tie it all together or fill the space. Most of these cabinets will still use a filler piece to take up the small difference or to account for SQUARE walls and ceilings not being CORNERS perfect. These cabinet lines usually have a broad series Jeff Deahl of available colors, styles and makes of wood. Custom cabinets are built to size, finish and materials specified. Most custom cabinet makers produce a set of standard cabinet sizes, then vary when making the ends of special cabinets of you wishes to tie it all together. Some so-called custom cabinet makers will use lesser grade components just like the ones in the good category so you want to know the differences. Generally, custom cabinets will have superior grades and patterns to their woods. They will have smooth gliding drawers and solid hardware. Their fastening techniques should be superior; dove tailed drawer boxes and high quality, even hidden components, should be included. Ultimately, a custom cabinet set would be built personally for you, changing standard features: Taller or shorter cabinets, cabinets with special features for disabled applications. Or cabinets deeper or shallower specifically for your needs. Custom cabinets are commonly used for theater rooms, bar areas, around fireplaces, that window seat under the bay window, cabinetry for the library, and so on. Custom cabinets are the ultimate in personal expression, but if you’re talking about a basic kitchen or bath and a budget is a concern, manufactured cabinets will give you the best bang for the buck.




Cabinets’ custom features lead to higher cost

Use modern skills to light your antiques Sometimes you can teach an old dog a new trick. In this instance, I am the old dog. After years of working in museums and trying to light a fine work of art or an antique in the most flattering and least damaging way, I learned something new. I was working in museums back when we struggled with using hot halogen lights or ugly old fashioned fluorescent lights to light artwork or antique objects. Neither solution did the job very well. Everything is different today when it comes to art and antiques lighting — in museums and at home. LEDs are the wave (or diode, as the case may be) of the future. Most of us use a modern version of the same light bulb that Thomas Edison invented back in the 1800s. Edison’s bulb is the standard issue, inexpensive light bulb that gives off a yellow or amber color light. We still use them today and they work. Sorry historians out there … I hate to tell you but Edison’s bulb is now a thing of the past. There are many options when it comes to lighting your home now. The color that your light bulb gives off is important when it comes to lighting your artwork and antiques. Some lights give off white light, some yellow, and

some blue. Of course, it depends on what a light bulb is lighting and how the light looks to your eyes. When it comes to color shift, the human eye can perceive color differences of 10 percent from lights, so the color that the bulb gives off matters when it hits your blue Wedgwood teapot, your silver serving tray, or your red Chinese lacquer boxes. LEDs (light emitting diodes) are basically a computer chip ART & that emits light energized. ANTIQUES when They have been around since the 1950s. I Dr. Lori first learned about them in a museum when curating a museum exhibition of the work of American artist, Jenny Holzer. Holzer used LEDs as her art in the 1990s. In 2002, an Asian company came up with the first white LEDs for residential use and the rest, as they say, is history. These LED lights look like strips with little round points of light on them. There is an adhesive on the back of the LED strip that


can be installed almost anywhere — hiding above crown molding, under cabinets, around doors, beneath window sills, etc. It seems as if this innovation in lighting will make it a snap to light your foyer sculpture, your cookie jar collection, or the collectibles in

China cabinet lighting is a thing of the past.

your china cabinet. It is the china cabinet application that made me interested in LEDs. Edison’s light bulb and those terrible white hot fluorescent lights in your mud room, basement or garage give off heat and lots of it. Because of LEDs, the hot china

cabinet is a thing of the past. How many times have I advised my audiences of antiquers to avoid putting the hot lights on in your china cabinet in order to show off your collectibles, Waterford crystal, or Hummel figurines? I’ve said that the lights in the china closet get too hot and the heat can cause damage to your display pieces. LEDs do not emit damaging UV rays or intense heat, so that means that you can install these neat, nearly invisible LED light strips anywhere and they will not cause the kind of serious damage to your antiques or collectibles that other light bulbs can. Discuss your specific needs with a lighting professional to get the best result. LEDs will cost a little more, but the new applications are exciting for decorators, antique lovers, collectors, and art enthusiasts. Now we can show off our old treasures in a new light. DR.

This offbeat raspberry is worth growing BY LEE REICH The Associated Press

When I really want to impress a visitor to my garden, I offer a taste of Fallgold raspberries. Many raspberries taste good, especially when picked dead ripe and popped into your mouth, but Fallgold is perhaps the tenderest and sweetest raspberry around. Here is a berry that you’ll never see in a supermarket; it’s too fragile to travel much further than arm’s length. Fallgold berries also have an unusual appearance. Their pale yellow, blushed orange color seems to speak to their sweetness and tenderness, and also probably helps hide the fruit from birds. As its name indicates, Fallgold bears fruit in the fall. In this, it’s not unique. There are a number of so-called “fallbearing” raspberries. These varieties begin their fall crop (it actually begins in late summer) starting at the tips of new canes, with fruit continuing to ripen down the canes until stopped by freezing temperatures.

Fallbearing raspberries are sometimes called everbearing raspberries, although they actually bear only two crops each season. The first, in midsummer, is borne lower on canes that grew the previous season, the ones that started bearing near their tips the previous late summer and fall. Knowing where and when these raspberries fruit tells you how to prune them. Easiest is just to cut the whole planting to the ground early each winter. This method sacrifices the summer crop but avoids any problems from winter cold or hungry deer. It also cuts down on the chances of disease, not that raspberries are so plagued by diseases. However, it seems a shame to choose that easier pruning route for Fallgold. Why? Because if you let it bear two crops a season, you’re forced to suffer only a short hiatus — usually only a couple of weeks — between the end of the summer crop and the beginning of the second crop. You get berries

from midsummer right into autumn. Pruning for two crops is not all that difficult. In winter or right after the summer crop finishes, cut down to the ground every cane that bore a summer crop. You can recognize these canes because they show their age with peeling bark. In winter, go over the planting and cut to the ground enough younger canes so that those that are left are a few inches apart and grow in a swathe no wider than 12 inches. Selectively remove the thinnest ones. With Fallgold grown for two crops each season, there’s still usually no need to worry about winter cold damage on those canes that remain. Despite its beauty, sweetness and tenderness, Fallgold is a tough plant. Don’t fret too much about deer damage either: Deer aren’t all that fond of raspberry canes, and AP Fallgold will compensate for any canes that are eaten with a This Sept. 23 photo shows a Fallgold raspberry on a brick wall in subsequent, larger late summer New York City. Fallgold’s name speaks out yet another one of the and fall crop. plant’s qualities: It bears in the fall.

Cut back diseased foliage, but prune perennials later If a person were to take a look at my flowerbeds, they would immediately know that perennials are my absolute favorite. My beds are loaded with grasses, evergreens, ground covers and flowers. I especially like the fact that many of them reproduce and spread which gives me the opportunity to share my bounty of perennials with others. I like to leave some of my perennials standing during the winter months rather than cutting them down. Some perennials have rather attractive foliage or rather what is left of it after the cold weather has set in. Some also have seed heads that are a

source of food for birds and stems that give them a place to hide when a predator is lurking about. For some marginally hardy KNOWLEDGE plants, TO GROW leaving the stems aids in Karen Weiland their overwintering. To help insulate the crowns of my chrysanthemums, I leave the stems standing and pack them with

leaves. If a perennial is a late riser in the spring, leaving the stems on will alert a person to not dig at that spot and harm the underground portion of it. There are some instances where you will want to cut back a perennial as in the case of a foliage disease. Diseased foliage should be removed to reduce the amount of re-infestation to the plant during the next growing season. If cutting is necessary or preferred, it should be done after the plant has gone dormant. This usually happens after a few hard frosts. When cutting, leave about 2 to 3 inches of the plant. Do not cut back to the soil as this

can result in injury to the plant due to the fact that in some perennials, next year’s buds are right at the surface or a bit higher and not below the soil line. Wait until late winter or spring to prune woody plants if possible. Cutting them in the fall will leave open wounds that will not heal quickly and be an invitation for disease to enter the plant. If you have done some late fall plantings of perennials I would recommend that they be mulched very well to prevent frost heaving and the chance that they will not survive the winter. I generally like to place about 2 to 3 inches

of bark mulch around a late planting. Fall is a good time to give your perennial beds a layer of protective mulch in general. Prior to mulching you may want to spread a layer of compost, about an inch or two, which is much easier done when the plants are cut back in the fall. If you have lots of different cultivars of a perennial, such as daffodils, hostas or daylilies, you might want to think about making a map of where they are located in your landscape. Labels have a way of working themselves out of the ground during the winter months or even during the growing season with plant maintenance, and get mixed

up…..a map can help you keep everything straight. As always, happy gardening.

‘Going Faux’ can transform a home’s style THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Phoebe Taylor’s 20-yearold suburban Atlanta ranch house began plain and “builder grade.” A professional decorator, she transformed it with faux wood beams, decorative molding and a gold-spun paint job that looked like “soft marble.” Her vision: “what our dream house would have been if we had gone out and bought it.” It’s called “Going Faux” — turning homes into something they basically are not through prefab architectural embellishments and eye-tricking wall finishes. Enthusiasts say there’s no reason for even the most budget-conscious among us to live a cookie-cutter existence. “My house was not an expensive house. But even the million dollar houses don’t have this kind of detail,” says Taylor, adding that she recently sold the house in just one day. Other “faux” features to consider include ceiling decals that look like parts of elaborate chandeliers, cabinetry embellishments and painted wainscoting. “I have seen some trailer homes that have more personality to them thanks to paint, sweat equity, buying some lumber, and their owners using their creativity,” says Lee Gamble, a Steamboat Springs, Colo.-based designer and painter who specializes in faux finishes. Gamble says a homeowner can change anything with desire and patience — even ambitious projects like, say, making the interior of a standard subdivision home look like a cozy Tudor or classic Colonial, or like something out of the rustic West. The Internet is a DIY decorator’s best friend, she says, offering inspiration and sources for adding architectural and decorative elements to a home. Next is paint, which Gamble calls “the cheapest way to improve your house” — and it’s about more than just giving the walls new color. Paint can be used to

create illusions of architectural elements: For example, you can use blocks of color on walls to create the look of molding, or three variations of one color for a three-dimensional look — an old technique called trompe l’oeil that can make your home look just a little more like the Palace of Versailles. Paint can make high ceilings look lower — extend the ceiling’s color to a lower point on the wall — or give them more height by going dark. Using different colors on the top and bottom halves of a wall can create the look of wainscot, Gamble says. Ornamental appliqués that adhere to anything from cabinetry, walls, mantels and molding to furniture and picture frames add ready-made detail without breaking the bank, she says. The decorative appliqués, which can be painted, stained or glazed, are particularly helpful in transforming the look of kitchen cabinets. “If they are in good shape and the flow works for you, then there is no reason to change them out,” Gamble says, adding that the appliqués, paint and

new cabinetry hardware can transform a “builder-grade kitchen” to any style from classic to contemporary. “Suddenly you have a new kitchen,” she says. The products that make such projects possible are becoming easier to use, home designers says. The manufacturer Fypon, for example, makes

synthetic ceiling beams and medallions and decorative millwork that are lighter and more manageable than real wood, Gamble says. Decorative millwork like, say, a sunburst pediment over a door, is an easy improvement to a room, says Kathleen Ziprik, a Fypon spokeswoman. Taylor says she used

tricks like that in her renovation. In redoing her master bath, for example, she started with “just a straight shot bathroom.” She added molding and wood panels to the walls, and framed the bathtub, using new material with decora-

tive embellishments. “It looked very dramatic,” Taylor says, adding that buying a new home with those real architectural features would not have been affordable. “It really looked real,” she says.

From elf ears to pig snouts: DIY costume tips THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

If you’re thinking of making this year’s Halloween costume yourself, you can stick with simple or go Hollywood pro. Neither has to take much time or money, and either can create a convincing costume, whether you’re looking to draw guffaws, shrieks or admiring nods. Brenda K.B. Anderson, who builds creatures and costumes for the touring “Sesame Street Live” show at VEE Corp. in Minneapolis, says some of the same theories she uses there also apply to making Halloween costumes. A good costume blurs the line between reality and fantasy, she says; even simple subterfuge, such as donning a wig or wearing thick-rimmed glasses, can suffice. “When people can’t see what you really look like beneath the makeup, hair and clothes, you are much more believable,” says Anderson, author of “Beastly Crochet” (Interweave, 2013). For instance, she suggests padding a costume — such as around the middle for a clown or bear — to disguise your own shape and make it more authentic. Start pulling your costume together by visiting a thrift shop, Anderson advises. “Thrift stores are kind of a gold mine for the beginnings of Halloween costumes,” she says. “For very little money you can get a whole bridal gown — something that looks more authentic.” Kim Conner, of Burlington, Vt., writes about thrifty craftiness at her “seven thirty three” blog. “I try to utilize things that I have, and what I have to buy is inexpensive,” says Conner. For instance, her simple pig costume: Felt ears


The Martha Stewart Halloween special issue shows a snake charmer/Medusa costume with elaborate lashes, green snake-eye contacts and temporary lip tattoos.


The mermaid costume Kim Conner, a Burlington, Vt., marketing director and mother of three, designed for her daughter is a frequent repin on the Pinterest photo-sharing web site. Details for how to make the costume are at Conner’s blog, seven thirty three. With supplies on hand and inexpensive purchases, a Halloween costume can be assembled in a snap.

attached to a pink headband, a plastic bottle cap wrapped in felt and topped with a pink button to resemble a pig’s snout. Her mermaid costume, a little more complicated, involves sewing. An added challenge is trying to keep her children warm on Halloween night without having to cover up with coats. Some tricks: Incorporate a hat, wig, hooded cloak or long gloves into the costume. On bare arms, wear nylons. Legs

stay warm in thick-cotton stockings, leggings or tall boots. The editors at Real Simple magazine also focus on scrounging around the house for supplies, such as brown paper bags and cereal boxes, or buying the bare minimum to fashion costumes for kids and adults. For a flapper, for instance, attach horizontal rows of fringed pink Post-it notes with red metallic tape to cover a simple dress; glue two mini cupcake liners,

with gold-dot stickers in their centers, as flower decorations. “It’s tailored toward having fun with the kids and getting them into it,” says

Krissy Tiglias, deputy editor of Real Simple’s website, which offers more than 50 costume ideas. Many of the magazine’s

adult costumes can be assembled moments before a Halloween party. The outfit often hinges on a pun. For example, wear a white chef’s hat and apron, and carry an iron (real or toy) to be an “iron chef.” The creative types at Martha Stewart Living have turned out another Halloween Special Issue magazine full of costumes, some of which can be had in a flash: Glue blue and green craft-store feathers and a beak cut from yellow paper to green plastic glasses and wear a matching boa. Presto! You’re a parrot. What’s really enchanting in the magazine this year? The plethora of faux lashes, contact lenses, lip appliques and gruesome tattoos — evidence that Hollywood’s professional makeup secrets at long last can be ours. “Special-effects makeup is really making its way into the marketplace. We wanted to show people what they could get themselves,” says Marcie McGoldrick, editorial director of holiday and crafts for Martha Stewart Living. These items aren’t cheap — the featured snake-eye contact lenses cost $70 — and require planning ahead. But the effect can be haunting. For example, the “snake charmer” costume includes contact lenses, faux lashes, snakeskin-patterned lip tattoos, ample eyeliner and a rubber snake worn around the neck like a choker. Other makeup effects include 3D scars and the latest in tattoos that mimic bruises, cuts and scars — all easy to apply, McGoldrick says. She recommends buying one or two items, such as $10 Latex elf ears or a big wig, to add “that little extra bit” to a homemade costume.
