Festival concludes in soaking rain BY BOB BRALEY

KENDALLVILLE — A driving rain drove some people away from the Apple Festival of Kendallville Sunday afternoon, but hundreds of people still came out to take part in the event. Traffic was slower at the gates for on-the-grounds parking once heavier rain moved in during the afternoon hours, gate workers said. Even with slower traffic, there were still plenty of people at the festival Sunday afternoon. Food booths remained busy, with some even having lines. Foot traffic on the Noble County Fairgrounds midway remained brisk. “Snow or sleet is better than rain here,” said Bonnie Nast of Angola, who was on hand as part of the Warped Sisters, a spinning and yarn-craft crafting duo. Nast said she’s been part of the festival most years since the late 1980s. People come out to the festival in all sorts of other conditions, including heat, cold, snow and sleet, or even light rain, but heavy rain tends to drive down crowds, she said.


Hundreds of people came out in the rain to enjoy the Apple Festival of Kendallville Sunday afternoon.

A worker in the St. Mary’s Church caramel-corn booth said business was down once the rain moved in. It presented another challenge there, also, as rainwater got in the oil used to pop the corn. That meant more hot-oil-spatters to dodge, he said. Indoor venues were popular, with the entertainment and crafters being big draws. Johnny

Appleseed’s stories on the Dekko Little Pioneer Stage in Floral Hall drew not only a crowd of children, but roars of reaction from them as the story proceeded. Nast said the Apple Festival of Kendallville remains one of her favorites. It brings in a lot of people, yet still feels leisurely and pleasant, she said, adding, “It’s a nice festival.”

LIGONIER — The Future Ligonier Alliance is hosting its annual scarecrow decorating contest along South Cavin Street in the downtown area. In addition, a Fall Festival is set for Friday, Oct. 18, from 4-8 p.m. in the downtown Ligonier area. The public is invited to build a decorative scarecrow and attach it to a light-pole in the downtown area. Judging will be done around Oct. 16, so be sure to have scarecrows in place by then. Vendors are needed to set up to sell food and craft items at the fall festival. More details are available by contacting Norma Donley of the FLA at 463-6647. Registration sheets are also available at Ligonier Floral Shop on S. Cavin Street. Other events in the West Noble area include: • The Cromwell Historical Society has announced a new location for the annual Cromwell Halloween carnival on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Line-up for the parade will begin at 4 p.m. at Wysong’s, and the parade begins at 4:30 p.m. The parade route is through the town and then back to the fire station, behind the post office. Judging of the costumes will take place at the firehouse instead of the old gymnasium. The local firefighters will have a chili supper that evening also.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Republicans in the Midwest would like you to know something about the government shutdown that closed the national parks and put 800,000 workers on the street: They had nothing to do with it. Please don’t blame them. That message spilled out of

the offices of state legislators, and even governors, in public statements, tweets and interviews as politicians outside Washington scrambled to insulate themselves from the partisan turmoil that sent repercussions across the country. No shutdowns here, they assured, in one state capital after

another. We wouldn’t do that. “Here in Lansing, we will continue to work hard on solutions to issues facing Michigan’s families,” declared Rep. Al Pscholka, a conservative Republican from southwestern Michigan. SEE LAWMAKERS, PAGE A6

WASHINGTON (AP) — A large chunk of the furloughed federal work force is headed back to the Pentagon, and those who remain at home or are working without paychecks are a step closer to getting back pay once the partial government shutdown ends. Still, a resolution to the impasse itself is nowhere in sight. House Speaker John Boehner doesn’t see one. Asked Sunday how the standoff ends, he was uncertain: “If I knew, I’d tell you.” The Ohio Republican added President Barack Obama can call him any time to start negotiations to end the shutdown. “He knows what my phone number is,” Boehner said on ABC. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said Sunday that Congress should act immediately to reopen the government because the votes are there to pass a temporary budget measure. “There are no winners here,” Lew said on NBC. “Every day the government is shut down does real harm to the American people.” Lew said that members of Congress “need to open the government up. They can do it today.” The federal government was partially shut down Tuesday, the first day of the new budget year, after Republicans and Democrats couldn’t agree on a plan to continue funding federal agencies. House Republicans are demanding significant changes to Obama’s signature health care law in exchange for reopening the government, a demand that Democrats say is absurd. “It was time for us to take a stand,” Boehner said. Since Tuesday, the GOP-led House has passed several bills to reopen selected parts of the government. Democratic leaders are rejecting the piecemeal approach, saying the entire government should be reopened and the 800,000 federal workers on SEE NEITHER, PAGE A6

Couple have bumper crop of pumpkins BY AARON ORGAN

AUBURN — If there is a “right” way to grow pumpkins, maybe Steve and Marcia Provines have discovered it. The crops don’t lie. The Provineses operate Azzitshudbe Farm at 2347 C.R. 38, just northwest of Auburn, a vast plot of farmland that this time of year is known locally for the abundance of bright-orange pumpkins that crowd the lawn around the family home right off the roadway. Down the quiet street is a simple, handmade sign that reads “pumpkins,” and are there



ever pumpkins. This year’s crop is strong in quantity and quality, with Steve Provines saying he harvested 8-10 pickup truckloads and one trailer load of pumpkins this season, a crop he estimates at well over 1,000. The Provines display for-sale pumpkins — each dipped in bleach water to preserve it and SEE PUMPKINS, PAGE A6


Steve and Marcia Provines run Azzitshudbe Farm just northeast of Auburn, where they sell naturally grown pumpkins from their yard. The crop has ballooned this year after a 2012 season that began with a drought and ended with a deep freeze that left the Provineses without a sale last year.

LaGrange County man booked on sex charges BY MATT GETTS

LAGRANGE — A man wanted on sex-related charges turned himself in at the LaGrange County Jail Thursday evening. Ventura S. Sanchez, 24, of the 200 block of North Maple Street, LaGrange, was booked into the jail on charges including criminal deviate conduct, a Class B felony, and sexual battery, a Class D felony. According to court papers, Sanchez allegedly committed illegal acts with a girl under the age of 16 at a LaGrange home in early February.

Facade work started

The victim told police Sanchez approached her late one evening while she was on a couch. He held her down and said, “Stay still and do what I want you to do.� Sanchez left the area after the incident and was rumored to be in Michigan and, at another time, in Mexico. The LaGrange County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office was able to negotiate with an Indianapolis-based attorney for Sanchez to turn himself in. An arrest warrant had been issued by LaGrange County Superior Court.

Indiana agencies dealing with effects of shutdown INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — After spending years walking up to the brink of a shutdown, the federal government finally shuttered over the ongoing health care budget battle. Federal workers have been furloughed. Passport applications and tax help are on hold. And federal services that often go overlooked, from NASA research to high-profile national park operations, have become the centerpieces of floor speeches from the U.S. House and Senate. Even in Indiana, state government has been pulled into dealing with the shutdown. The state Department of Workforce Development issued guidelines last week for federal employees seeking unemployment assistance. But states largely have escaped the fray, and many

leaders have gone out of their way to emphasize that state governments pass budgets and get their work done. That’s not to say it hasn’t been a close call at times. Through the early 1990s, then-Democratic Gov. Evan Bayh’s budget battles with lawmakers occasionally sparked talk of a possible state government shutdown. In 1993, Bayh called lawmakers back for a special session to pass the budget. Services that usually operate smoothly with little attention, from state parks to social welfare assistance, were suddenly pulled into the debate. While the special session dragged on through June 1993, then-Auditor Ann Devore made the case that services would end if lawmakers and the governor couldn’t reach an agreement.

“The purpose of state government is to provide services to its citizens,� she said at the time. “As of July 1, 1993, the purpose of this state government may cease to exist.� The shutdown didn’t happen, and lawmakers have generally passed a budget within their allotted budgetwriting sessions every two years since. But Washington-style partisan gridlock has crept into the Indiana Statehouse in recent years. House Democrats led a five-week walkout in 2011 over a package of education bills and right-to-work legislation. They followed again in 2012 with periodic boycotts of the House floor that stalled passage of the right-to-work ban on union fees for a few weeks.

KENDALLVILLE — Work has begun on refurbishing the Jansen Family Dentistry building at 230 S. Main St. in Kendallville. K & F Construction Inc. of Kendallville is the general contractor for the $60,000 project, which is expected to take three to four weeks. Improvements include new windows, a new facade, new sign and canopy and new paint. Wednesday morning, the Redevelopment Commission awarded Jansen Family Dentistry a $15,000 matching grant from its facade grant program. Commissioners encourage downtown business and building owners to improve the look of their properties with the help of matching grants up to $15,000. King Decorating Inc. is completing improvements to the Kendallville Auto Parts building at 101 S. Main St., another project supported with a Redevelopment Commission facade grant. Downtown business and building owners interested in the facade grant program may obtain applications from the mayor’s office in City Hall.

Assessed value documentation mailed ALBION — Form F-11 Notice of Assessment documents for 2013 taxes to be paid in 2014 were mailed out Sept. 20, the Noble County Assessor’s office said. The forms were mailed to each property’s current owner of record as of Sept. 12. They aren’t tax bills. The assessor’s office is not responsible for setting the amount of tax, only for setting assessed value. The Noble County Auditor’s and Treasurer’s offices will be able tell what taxes will be once rates are established. That’s currently expected take place in about February 2014. No office can tell

what taxes will be due in 2014 at this time. Those disagreeing with total assessed value have until Nov. 5 to file an appeal. There will not be an additional opportunity to file an appeal following the spring tax billing. An appeal form, Form 130, can be obtained at or in the assessor’s office in the Noble County Courthouse. Evidence to be provided for an appeal can include, but isn’t limited to, at least three comparable properties, real estate listing information, pictures of the home inside and out, a recent appraisal done to establish property value or a purchase

or settlement agreement. For a new house being rented before March 1, property owners should contact the assessor’s office to submit paperwork if it hasn’t already been done. Due to new legislation in 2012, if a taxpayer wishes to have the income capitalization method or the gross rent multiplier method used to assess a property, the taxpayer must submit the necessary information to the assessor no later than the March 1 assessment date. Commercial and industrial properties should reflect market value in use, considering cost, sales comparisons and income as

approaches to value. If appealing the value, the owner should be prepared to submit any relevant information, including but not limited to actual construction cost, comparable sales, or income and expense statements for at least three years. Property record cards will be available at beacon. on the Indiana site. Go to Noble County, locate the property, scroll down to the PDF, and double click on the blue parcel number to get a printable card. The new law also makes new rulings and penalties regarding the appeal process.

working on a sequel to “Storm Chaser.” In July, Hunter published a local history book, “Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights: A Century or So With the Albion Fire Department.” His humor column, “Slightly Off the Mark,” appears in three weekly newspapers. For two decades Hunter has been an emergency dispatcher for the Noble County Sheriff Department. He’s served over 32 years as a volunteer for the Albion Fire Department, holding such positions as safety officer, training officer, secretary, and public information officer. He also has done public relations writing for the Noble County Relay For Life, among other organizations, and served two terms on the Albion Town Council.

Tribes mishandle funds, get more ETHETE, Wyo. (AP) — American Indian tribes have been caught misappropriating tens of millions of taxpayer dollars, according to internal tribal audits and other documents. But federal authorities do little about it — due to a lack of oversight, resources or political will. The result? Poor tribes like the Northern Arapaho of Wyoming suffer. One Arapaho manager pocketed money meant to buy meals for tribal elders. Another used funds from the reservation’s diabetes program to subsidize personal shopping trips. And other members plundered the tribal welfare fund, then gambled the money away at one of the tribe’s casinos. Altogether, employees drained at least a half-million dollars from the coffers of a tribe whose members have a median household income of about $16,000 a year. Federal agencies questioned millions more dollars the Northern Arapaho government spent, but decided not to recover any

of the money — and even increased funding to the tribe. The Wyoming tribe is hardly unique. An Associated Press review of summaries of audits shows that serious concerns were consistently raised about 124 of 551 tribal governments, schools or housing authorities that received at least 10 years of substantial federal funds since 1997.

NEW YORK (AP) — Five years after U.S. investment bank Lehman Brothers collapsed, triggering a global financial crisis and shattering confidence worldwide, families in major countries around the world are still hunkered down, too spooked and distrustful to take chances with their money. An Associated Press analysis of households in the 10 biggest economies shows that families continue to spend cautiously and have pulled hundreds of billions of dollars out of stocks, cut borrowing for the first time in decades and poured money into savings and bonds that offer puny interest payments, often too low to keep up with

inflation. “It doesn’t take very much to destroy confidence, but it takes an awful lot to build it back,” says Ian Bright, senior economist at ING, a global bank based in Amsterdam. “The attitude toward risk is permanently reset.” A flight to safety on such a global scale is unprecedented since the end of World War II. The implications are huge: Shunning debt and spending less can be good for one family’s finances. When hundreds of millions do it together, it can starve the global economy. Weak growth around the world means wages in the United States, which aren’t

DETROIT —Detroit’s bankruptcy is casting a shadow over a long list of cities across the U.S. and giving mayors new urgency in the search for solutions to the greatest challenge to face America’s cities in a generation. While no other city is expected to join Detroit in bankruptcy court anytime soon, similar problems brought on by waning industries, crushing debt and surging pension costs plague city halls from Providence, R.I., to California, and in response mayors are proposing big changes to what was long the biggest perk of a government job: a good and reliable pension. “It’s the lesson of kicking the can down the road. You can put these things off. But at some point the bill comes due,” Baltimore

Mayor Stephanie RawlingsBlake said in an interview. “People ask me sometimes what keeps me up at night. The prospect of being one of those cities is what keeps me up at night.” The total unfunded pension liability for all U.S. cities and counties is a whopping $574 billion, according to a 2010 study by economists at Northwestern University. That’s a formidable burden to cities already struggling with revenue declines, debt and the ongoing cost of providing services. Years of financial neglect left Detroit’s finances in ruin, prompting its emergency manager to propose sweeping changes to the way the city doles out benefits by eliminating payment increases and creating a new 401(k)-style

keeping up with inflation, will continue to rise slowly. Record unemployment in parts of Europe, higher than 35 percent among youth in several countries, won’t fall quickly. Another wave of Chinese, Brazilians and Indians rising into the middle class, as hundreds of millions did during the boom years last decade, is unlikely. Some of the retrenchment is not surprising: High unemployment in many countries means fewer people with paychecks to spend. Some people who lost jobs got new ones that pay less or are part time. But even people with good jobs and little fear of losing them remain cautious. “Lehman changed

everything,” says Arne Holzhausen, a senior economist at global insurer Allianz, based in Munich. “It’s safety, safety, safety.” The AP analyzed data showing what consumers did with their money in the five years before the Great Recession began in December 2007 and in the five years that followed, through the end of 2012. The focus was on the world’s 10 biggest economies — the U.S., China, Japan, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Russia, Italy and India — which have half the world’s population and 65 percent of global gross domestic product.

Detroit bankruptcy impacting other cities


across the range of nonprofits and local governments that get federal money. But tribes are five times as likely as other recipients of federal funds to have “material weaknesses” that create an opportunity for abuses, according to the review. Overall, 1 in 4 audits concluded that tribal governments, schools or housing authorities had a material weakness in their

federally funded programs; the rate was 1 in 20 for nontribal programs. Thousands of pages of audits and dozens of reports by federal investigators, obtained by the AP under the Freedom of Information Act, show evidence of embezzlement, paychecks for do-nothing jobs and employees who over-billed hours and expenses. The audits, conducted by private firms, are required of tribes that spend more than $500,000 in federal funds annually. Agencies often cannot legally cut funding because of treaties, Supreme Court decisions and acts of Congress, and they frequently refuse to take control of failing programs. “It’s basically a reluctance to take on tribes. The Department of the Interior bends over backwards to be their friends,” said Earl Devaney, the former inspector general at the department that houses the bureaus of Indian Affairs and Indian Education.

fication of industry, adequate funding of pension systems, population decline and debt. Bloomberg pointed out that New York itself almost went bankrupt in 1975 — a tumultuous time when many cities were struggling to respond to urban decay, poverty, unemployment and the rise of suburbs. “We would be foolish to ignore the factors that drove Detroit to bankruptcy,” Bloomberg said in July, shortly after the Motor City took its landmark step. “I believe that the Detroit experience holds lessons for every American city.” More and more cities are proposing replacing traditional pensions for new employees with a defined contribution plan or a hybrid that combines a defined contribution plan with a smaller traditional pension.

retirement system. Rawlings-Blake has also proposed giving new employees a defined contribution plan, one that combines set contributions from workers and their employer, similar to the 401(k) accounts familiar to private-sector workers. The change would be just one part of an ambitious 10-year-financial plan that involves lower property taxes, a smaller city workforce and the goal of attracting 10,000 new families to Maryland’s largest city. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the lesson from Detroit — burdened by $18 billion in debt, declining revenue and huge deficits — is that cities will ultimately pay a steep price for ignoring long-term challenges including diversi-

A mom listens to her son BY DIANE HELBIG

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Always kiss your children goodnight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already asleep.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; H. Jackson Brown Jr. From the time my son could talk, he had something to say. Every night after we put him to bed heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call down the stairs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mommy, can you come up?â&#x20AC;? And every night I would answer the call and go back upstairs to hear what was on his mind. Sometimes he had something serious to discuss, and other times, not so much. We discussed everything from his belief, at 5 years old, that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to move to Florida when he grew up, to satisfying his curiosity about what was here before dinosaurs. When he was in elementary school, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tell me about things his friends were going through and ask me what advice Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give them. At about 8 years of age he wanted to know if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to move away from home to go to college. When I told him he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to but I was pretty sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want to, he assured me that he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to leave home â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ever! At one point he changed

his request from, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mommy, can you come up?â&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Daddy, can you send Mommy up?â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why this happened, but the result was still the same; I went up. One night my husband turned to me and said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know why he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask me to come up? He knows I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go.â&#x20AC;? My response was simple: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Aaron becomes a teenager, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have serious things to discuss. I want him to know he can always talk to me. No matter what time of day or what the subject may be, I want Aaron to know that he can trust me to take it seriously and take the time to talk to him. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to matter.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll admit there were nights when I really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

want to go back up and talk about anything. On one of those nights I asked Aaron why we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about these things earlier in the day. His answer? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about them then.â&#x20AC;? Enough said! It was at night, when the day was done and he was relaxing, that the mysteries of life invaded his thoughts. Aaron is now a teenager, and there are many more things to think and talk about. Teenagers these days deal with a lot of issues. From drugs to grades, from teen pregnancies to friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; parents divorcing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the list of possible real-life topics is endless. And then there are the not-so-serious issues teens deal with, like acne. On any given day my son is dealing with these issues. On any given day he knows he can talk with me about any of these issues. He knows Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take them seriously and take the time to listen, because when he was little I always answered the call. And, as I knew then, it really matters now.

It’s a far cry from last year, when Steve said he planted twice in excessively dry ground and the crop just didn’t grow during the summer drought. The few pumpkins that did grow that year were killed by a September frost. The conditions left the Provineses with a batch of pumpkins too small to warrant a sale, so they opened it to friends and family to take. “It was not a good year,” said Marcia Provines. But that’s okay for the couple, who use the revenue from pumpkin sales to supplement their full-time income: Steve works with the DeKalb County Highway Department full-time, and Marcia holds down two part-time jobs as a teaching aide and as director of the DeKalb County Council on Pregnancy.

NEITHER: Retroactive pay issue still on table furlough put back to work. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ended the argument for most Pentagon civilian employees, ordering nearly all 350,000 back on the job. Hagel said he based his decision on a Pentagon interpretation of a law called the Pay Our Military Act, which was passed shortly before the partial government shutdown began. Republican lawmakers had complained in recent days that the Obama administration was slow to bring back those workers even though the law allowed it. In a written statement released Saturday explaining his action, Hagel said the Justice Department advised that the law does not permit a blanket recall of all Pentagon civilians. But government attorneys concluded that the law does allow the Pentagon to eliminate furloughs for “employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members.” Hagel said he has told Pentagon officials, including leaders of

been growing crops of pumpkins since 1996, and after hit-and-miss early years, the crops have been relatively steady, they said. This season’s total actually was not one of the Provines’ bigger crops. Steve is the pumpkingrower, Marcia offers, and while the duo will have friends or relatives occasionally stop by to lend a hand during the growing season, it’s largely Steve who plants the pumpkins the first week of June, tills out the weeds during the dog days of summer and harvests the pumpkins come September. “You’ve got to know what you’re doing,” said Steve. The Provineses sell their pumpkins for $3 to $12, depending on size. A $12 version can weigh north of 65 pounds, they said. For more information on Azzitshudbe Farm, visit its Facebook page. Pumpkins can be purchased at Azzitshudbe Farm during daylight hours.

part-time work, it’s a full-time passion, they say. Azzitshudbe Farm sits on 42 acres of rolling land, with a large barn, roaming chickens, grazing cattle, curious cats and, now, a yard full of pumpkins. The name Azzitshudbe – sound it out – was Steve’s creation. Steve said he wanted a unique name, and one that tells his story of all-natural farming without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The Provines’ cows are all grass-fed, the chickens are free-range, and the pumpkins grow on land naturally fertilized by the cows. “As it should be,” said Steve. The farm has been in the Provines family since 1954, when Steve’s parents moved in and built a modest home on a lonely country road. They’ve since sold down some acreage, and now Steve and Marcia own 42 acres. Just two were dedicated to pumpkins this year, Steve said. The Provines have

Said Republican Gov. Rick Snyder about his way with budget problems: “We came in, did tax reform, balanced the budget, have done that several years successfully.” In Missouri, Republican Sen. Ryan Silvey of Kansas City joked on Twitter that he couldn’t tweet because of the shutdown but added: “Oh, wait. We passed our budget, balanced & on time. Nevermind. As you were.” The shutdown began Tuesday after a group of tea party Republicans in Congress made a last-ditch effort to block funding for President Barack Obama’s health insurance overhaul. Apparent to all, even in state capitals miles away, were the lessons of the shutdowns during Bill Clinton’s presidency. Many voters blamed Republicans and exacted retribution in the next election. Should any partisan blame start flying now, state politicians, especially moderate Republicans in the Midwest, want cover. In Michigan, Snyder, who fought tough battles over fiscal issues with Democrats in the GOP-controlled Legislature, made his state’s budget negotiating process sound like a high school civics class. His advice to his federal

counterparts: “Stop blaming, stop taking credit, get in a room, solve the problem and keep moving forward.” Rep. Joe Haveman, another Republican from western Michigan, Snyder said his colleagues like budget agreements, not blocking them. Lawmakers got a “budget approved four months early,” he said. “That’s the new normal in Lansing.” But Michigan Democrats noted that Snyder and the Republicans also rammed a right-to-work measure through the Legislature with no compromise, prompting huge union protests at the Capitol. Michigan’s aversion to shutdowns was heightened by two brief but embarrassing deadlocks in 2007 and 2009 that brought scorn down on both parties. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, was among those testifying to the virtues of compromise and conciliation. This after months of pitched battles with his Republican Legislature, in which he vetoed 29 bills and waged a cross-state public campaign

to kill a GOP-approved tax cut. While the federal government closes, he said, “We reach across the aisle to balance budgets, control spending and protect our AAA credit rating.” Most polling immediately before the shutdown showed Republicans taking more heat from the public than Obama. No major polls have been released since workers were sent home Tuesday. The potential for backlash is especially dangerous for Republicans in battleground states like Michigan where independents, not the tea party, decide elections. The GOP in several Midwestern states takes a less combative approach to interparty differences, in contrast to tea party bastions like Texas, home of anti-Obamacare leader Sen. Ted Cruz. GOP leaders in the moderate states were eager to point that out. “We run different than the federal government,” said Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, a Republican. “We work to solve problems instead of fighting with each other. I don’t spend my time attacking the Democrats in the Legislature. In fact, we had a very successful session.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. commando raids in Libya and Somalia suggest the future shape of U.S. counterterrorism efforts — brief, targeted raids against highly sought extremist figures — and highlight the rise of Africa as a terrorist haven. The strikes also raise questions about where to interrogate and try captured terrorist suspects such as Abu Anas al-Libi, accused by the U.S. of involvement in the 1998 bombings of two American embassies in Africa. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Sunday that al-Libi was in U.S. custody; officials would not say where. The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, said al-Libi has “vast intelligence value.” McKeon, R-Calif., said President Barack Obama should “fully exploit this potential” before moving on to his prosecution. The White House seemed to agree, saying Saturday’s raid in Tripoli was specifically designed to apprehend, not kill, the suspect. “The president has made clear our preference for capturing terrorist targets when possible, and that’s

exactly what we’ve done in order to elicit as much valuable intelligence as we can and bring a dangerous terrorist to justice,” said the White House National Security Council’s spokeswoman, Caitlin Hayden. The outcome of a second U.S. commando raid Saturday, targeting a leader of the al-Qaida affiliated terror group, al-Shabab, was less clear. A Navy SEAL team swam ashore in Somalia early in the morning and engaged in a fierce firefight. A U.S. official said afterward the Americans disengaged after inflicting some al-Shabab casualties, but it was unclear who was hit. The official was granted anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly. The raid in Somalia reflected the importance the Obama administration attaches to combating al-Shabab, whose leaders are believed to be collaborating more with other al-Qaida affiliated Islamic insurgent groups across Africa. In a speech in May outlining his strategy for the use of drones, Obama counted Somalia as among the places where the U.S. and its allies face “lethal yet less capable al-Qaida affiliates.”

Briefs • Vettel run continues in Formula One YEONGAM, South Korea (AP) — Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel’s relentless push toward a seemingly inevitable fourthstraight Formula One drivers’ championship continued with a victory at the Korean Grand Prix on Sunday. Even two safety-car periods, the emergence of a truck on the circuit mid-race and the incineration of his teammate’s car were not enough to put off the German, who made it a hat-trick of wins in Korea, and a fourth successive victory overall. The Red Bull ace led throughout to win by 4.2 seconds ahead of the Lotus pair of Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean. Nearest title rival Fernando Alonso was sixth, stretching Vettel’s lead in the championship to 77 points with only five races remaining, meaning he could wrap up the title at next weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka. If Vettel wins in Japan, and Alonso finishes worse than eighth, the German will join his compatriot Michael Schumacher and Juan-Manuel Fangio as the only men to win four successive titles. “Even though it looks very good for us, it’s still not over,” Vettel said. “I’m not trying to think about it to be honest, I’m focusing more on the present. “I am really enjoying things at the moment, we have a great team and we are having a great time as well.” Sauber’s Nico Hulkenberg put in a superb defensive drive over the last 17 laps by holding off a queue of world champions behind him after the second safety-car period ended, finishing fourth.


Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (12) is sacked by Seattle Seahawks defensive end Bruce Irvin during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday in Indianapolis. Luck and the Colts handed Seattle its first loss of the season, 34-28.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck spent most of Sunday’s game watching Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch run around. So when the Colts’ quarterback finally got a chance to make some plays, he rallied Indianapolis in the fourth quarter for yet another victory. He threw two touchdown passes and led the Colts on two time-consuming scoring drives in the fourth quarter, taking the lead on Donald Brown’s 3-yard TD run with 8:55 to play, to hand Seattle its first loss of the season, 34-28. “This is the most resilient team that I’ve ever been around,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “They’ve got more grit than anybody, any team I’ve been around.” This season has certainly tested the Colts (4-1). Since a closer-than-expected Week 1 win over Oakland, the Colts have lost three offensive starters with season-ending injuries and a Week 2 game for their first home loss in nearly a year. Somehow though, Indy rebounded with three straight wins, including victories over NFC powers San Francisco and Seattle. Now they have sole possession of the AFC South lead for the first time in the post-Peyton Manning era, too.And all this came on a

wacky day. Both teams scored off a blocked kick. The Seahawks (4-1) ran for 218 yards, averaged 6.4 yards per carry, had better field position and ran more than three dozen plays in Colts territory as they played keep away through the first three quarters. None of it mattered to Luck. He still found a way to win. On the decisive drive, he took advantage of a pass interference call against Richard Sherman, got another break when Pagano won a challenge on a third-down spot that turned fourth down into a first down. After consuming nearly seven minutes, he gave the ball to Brown, who squirted through the middle for the go-ahead score. Luck then hooked up with his favorite receiver Reggie Wayne on a 2-point conversion pass and took nearly five more minutes off the clock to set up Adam Vinatieri for a game-sealing 49-yard field goal. Luck finished 16 of 29 for 229 yards with two touchdowns and picked up his ninth fourth-quarter comeback win in 21 career games. “A win is a win, if it was ugly, if it was great,” Luck said. “To come back, you hold on for dear life, but a chance to beat a good team in front of our home fans, to get back on track at home, we take a lot of pride in that.”

Golf cup to U.S. DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — The Presidents Cup ended Sunday the same way it always goes — an American celebration after Tiger Woods delivered the winning point. Woods’ back flared up on him again in the final hour at Muirfield Village. He still managed to hang on to beat Richard Sterne, 1 up, to give the Americans the 18 points they needed to win the Presidents Cup for the fifth straight time. It was the third straight Presidents Cup that Woods won the cup-clinching match — all three with Fred Couples as the captain. “It was a team effort this whole week,” said Woods, who went 4-1 for the best record of any player. “We really played well to give ourselves a nice lead.” The biggest surprise was not so much the outcome — United States 18½, International 15 ½ — but that the matches ended without going to Monday. Rain interrupted the matches all week and made the course Jack Nicklaus built so soft that it was mere target practice for the best players in the world outside Europe. The fourth session of foursomes had to be completed Sunday morning because of the delays. That might have been the end of International hopes. The Americans were 3 down in two matches and turned them into a win and a halve, giving them a 14-8 lead going into the final round. The Americans needed only to win four of the 12 singles matches to keep the gold trophy. It was a little harder than they imagined, though it was a long shot for the Internationals. “It was a tall order, but they gave it their best shot. These guys played their tails off,” International captain Nick Price said. “We’re a real hodge-podge of a team that came together from four corners of the planet. And they gave the might of America a run for their money.” Even though the Americans clinched a tie with more than an hour left, it took until Woods in the ninth of 12 matches to secure the win.

Harvick survives in Kansas City KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Kevin Harvick didn’t simply have his hands full with the rest of the Sprint Cup field Sunday. He also was trying to tame a squirrely surface at Kansas Speedway. He handled both better than anybody else. Harvick pulled away from Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon on a late restart to win a wreck-filled race over the recently repaved track, keeping his No. 29 Chevrolet out of trouble all afternoon and making a big move in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. “It was an interesting weekend, to say the least,” said Harvick, who moved into third in points behind leaders Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson. “Everybody was battling the tires and the track, and I think it was like driving on a razor blade.” Harvick sat on the pole for the first time in 254 races, and that should have given him some confidence. He also won the last time he qualified first, at New Hampshire in 2006. “These guys just did a great job

all weekend,” Harvick said. “To have a car fast enough for me to qualify on the pole says a lot about how fast this thing is.” Harvick was chased across the line by Busch and Gordon. Joey Logano finished fourth, Carl Edwards was fifth, and Johnson finished sixth despite a hiccup with his engine on the final lap that cost him a spot on the track. Kenseth held onto his lead in the Chase with an 11th-place finish. Johnson narrowed the gap to three points, while Harvick closed to within 25 points heading to Charlotte. “We just got to keep doing what we did today to be a contender,” said his car owner, Richard Childress. “I don’t think top 10s will win a championship when you’re racing Jimmie Johnson and the group of guys that are up there.” Kyle Busch was the big loser after crashing out of his third straight Sprint Cup race at Kansas. He dropped from third in points to fifth, 35 out of first place.

“All-in-all just a crazy day,” said Johnson, who shaved five points off of Kenseth’s lead. “Wacky restarts, a lot of chaos there, and caution after caution for who knows what.” There were 15 cautions in the race, breaking the record of 14 set in last year’s race. The first came when the race wasn’t even a lap old and Danica Patrick slammed into the wall, and most of them occurred when cars got loose coming out of Turn 2. Kenseth both called the race “treacherous,” pointing to the combination of a repave last year and Goodyear’s new “multi-zone” tires that made it seem as if they were skating across a smooth, glasslike surface most of the afternoon. All of it was compounded by temperatures in the 50s at the start, more than 30 degrees cooler than practice earlier in the week. “It’s all about restarts and making sure you can gain spots, but it’s treacherous,” Kurt Busch said. “You had to have a lot of give and take.”

Pittsburgh Pirates pinch runner Josh Harrison (5) scores from second behind St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina on a single by Pedro Alvarez

in the eighth inning of Game 3 of a National League division baseball series on Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Pirates edge Cards for 2-1 lead PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pedro Alvarez and the Pirates kept that Jolly Roger flapping high above Pittsburgh. Alvarez hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 on Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in best-of-five NL division series. Alvarez pulled a grounder into right field that scored pinch-runner Josh Harrison from second base. Russell Martin followed with a sharp RBI single against reliever Kevin Siegrist, who took over after Carlos Martinez (0-1) faltered. The go-ahead single was the latest big hit by Alvarez. He homered in the first two games of the series and is 4 for 10 with four RBIs. Alvarez also kept the Pirates’ famous flag flying high in October. “Raise the Jolly Roger!” is the rallying cry for this wild-card team, now one victory from its first postseason series win since the 1979 World Series. Mark Melancon (1-0) picked up the win despite allowing Carlos Beltran’s

tying home run in the top of the eighth. Jason Grilli worked the ninth for a save. Charlie Morton is set to start for the Pirates in Game 4 on Monday against rookie Michael Wacha. Beltran finished 2 for 3 with three RBIs. His 16th postseason home run moved him past Babe Ruth for eighth place in postseason history. Beltran’s shot temporarily silenced a rocking crowd at PNC Park. It also set the stage for another dramatic win by the Pirates. Andrew McCutchen led off the eighth with his second hit, a double to left. But the NL MVP candidate unwisely tried to advance on Justin Morneau’s grounder to shortstop and was an easy out at third. Harrison ran for Morneau and moved up when Marlon Byrd walked. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny turned to the lefty Siegrist to face the left-handed Alvarez. The Pittsburgh slugger tied for the NL lead with 36 homers in the regular season, but hit just .180 against lefties. Alvarez responded with his single between first and second. Martin then tried to drop down a squeeze bunt to score Byrd from third — he fouled it off, then lined a hit to left that gave Grilli more than enough cushion. Martin’s sacrifice fly off reliever Seth Maness in the sixth gave the Pirates a 3-2 lead and turned the game over to Pittsburgh’s “Shark Tank” bullpen, one of the

keys to the franchise’s first winning season and playoff berth in 21 years. Tony Watson worked around a one-out single in the seventh before giving way to Melancon in the eighth. Melancon stepped in capably for a while when Grilli, the All-Star closer, went down with a strained right forearm in July. But Melancon struggled down the stretch and his fourth blown save in the last three weeks came courtesy of Beltran, who knows a thing or two about delivering this time of year. Pirates starter Francisco Liriano dominated the Cardinals during the regular season, going 3-0 with an 0.75 ERA in his three starts against the NL’s highestscoring team. He was electric in Pittsburgh’s wild-card win over Cincinnati last Tuesday, shaking off a sinus infection and baffling the Reds with a series of changeups and sliders that ended Cincinnati’s season and manager Dusty Baker’s tenure. The sharpness that fueled Liriano’s career-reviving year abandoned him after his first trip through the St. Louis lineup. He narrowly escaped the third inning when Matt Holliday lined to right with the bases loaded. Liriano wasn’t quite as fortunate in the fifth. Jon Jay led off with a single and Pete Kozma followed with a walk. After Joe Kelly struck out trying to bunt, a double steal set up Beltran’s two-run single.

LANSING, Mich. — Trine University was 12th in the men’s meet with 311 points and 15th in the women’s meet with 445 in the Lansing Invitational Friday at Grand Woods Park. Freshman Austin Ganger led the Thunder men in 12th place in an 8-kilometer time of 26 minutes, .5 seconds. Michael Hammond was 62nd in 27:19, and Adam Schaaf was 88th in 27:46.2. Garrett’s Ariel McCoy was 68th in a 5K time of 20:32.2 to lead the Trine women. Kelsey Ortiz was 98th in 21:03.9, and Courtney Forsythe was 126th in 21:41.2. This was the first cross country meet for new Thunder men’s cross country coach Zach Raber. Raber was the head cross country coach for both the boys and girls at Carroll High School in Huntertown for 11 seasons, ending last fall. He has been a teacher this fall at his alma mater Norwell High School. The Charger girls won sectional and regional championships in all 11 seasons of Raber’s coaching tenure as well as four semi-state titles and three top five finishes in the Indiana High School Athletic Associa-

tion state meet. Raber also led the Carroll boys to five regional titles, five sectional crowns, two semi-state titles and two state runner-up finishes. Overall, he has coached 25 All-State track and cross country athletes, including three state champions. Raber will also be the assistant head coach for Trine’s men’s and women’s track teams. The university also hired Rod Waters to be head coach of both Thunder track programs. Waters has been an assistant track coach at IPFW for three seasons after getting his collegiate coaching start at his alma mater Indiana Tech. Waters is a graduate of Wayne High School in Fort Wayne, then went on to be an eight-time NAIA All-American on the track at Indiana Tech. He really put the young Warrior track program on the map when he won the NAIA national championship in the 110-meter hurdles in 2008. He is Indiana Tech’s first male NAIA national champion. Raber and Waters replaced Charlie Massi, who left Trine late last month to be an assistant track and cross country coach and the head recruiting coordinator for both of those programs at NCAA Division II Tiffin (Ohio) University.

Broncos take scoreboard sizzler BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Matt Prater kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired and Peyton Manning and Denver overcame the first 500-yard passing game in Dallas history to keep the Broncos unbeaten with a 51-48 victory over the Cowboys on Sunday. Manning maintained his record pace of touchdown passes to start the season and finished with 414 yards and four scores for Denver (5-0). Tony Romo threw for 506 yards and five touchdowns for Dallas (2-3), but he was intercepted by Danny Trevanthan inside the Dallas 30 to set up Prater’s winning kick. SAINTS 26, BEARS 18 Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes to Pierre Thomas, Jimmy Graham tied an NFL record with another 100-yard game and the New Orleans Saints remained unbeaten. Brees was 29 of 35 for 288 yards in his first victory in four career games at Soldier Field. Garrett Hartley matched a career high with four field goals as New Orleans (5-0) picked up its first win in Chicago since a 31-10 victory on Oct. 8, 2000.

The Bengals (3-2) sacked Brady four times and kept New England (4-1) out of the end zone on a first-andgoal from the 1-yard line late in the fourth quarter. CHIEFS 26, TITANS 17 Jamaal Charles scored a 1-yard touchdown with 6:23 left, and the Chiefs rallied to keep up their perfect start. The Chiefs (5-0) are off to their best start since 2003, when they won their first nine games. This win came despite blowing a 13-0 halftime lead in this early AFC showdown between these surprising teams bouncing back after losing seasons. The Titans (3-2) couldn’t have been more out of synch in the first half with Ryan Fitzpatrick starting for Jake Locker, sidelined with his sprained right hip. He missed his first five passes and went three-and-out on his first five series before guiding Tennessee to 17 straight points in the second half. RAVENS 26, DOLPHINS 23 Justin Tucker kicked a 44-yard field goal to put the Baltimore Ravens ahead with 1:42 left, and they withstood a frantic comeback bid. Ryan Tannehill completed a 46-yard pass to Brandon Gibson on fourth down to keep Miami’s hopes alive, but Caleb Sturgis then missed a 57-yard field goal

attempt wide left with 33 seconds to go. PACKERS 22, LIONS 9 James Jones caught a long touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers, and the Packers defense contained the undermanned Lions. Mason Crosby kicked five field goals. The Packers’ offense struggled to get into the end zone until Rodgers found Jones on an 83-yard completion down the left sideline for a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter. EAGLES 36, GIANTS 21 Nick Foles threw for two touchdowns and led four scoring drives after taking over for an injured Michael Vick late in the second quarter, and Philadelphia kept the Giants winless. Foles threw fourth-quarter touchdown passes of 25 yards to Brent Celek and 5 yards to DeSean Jackson as the Eagles (2-3) snapped a three-game losing streak by forcing three interceptions by Eli Manning in the fourth quarter. CARDINALS 22, PANTHERS 6 Arizona sacked Cam Newton seven times, once for a safety, and intercepted him on three occasions to overcome a sluggish offensive performance. Daryl Washington, back after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, had two sacks and an interception for Arizona (3-2). Calais Campbell had two sacks, one for Arizona’s first regular-season safety in nine years, the other forcing a game-clinching fumble. Karlos Dansby also had two sacks and an interception.

Rafael Nadal of Spain reacts to a point he lost to Novak Djokovic of Serbia during the final of the China Open tennis tournament Sunday in Beijing, China

Nadal loses match, but back at No. 1 in men’s tennis BEIJING (AP) — Novak Djokovic lost his top ranking to the resurgent Rafael Nadal, but lost no time in gaining some consolation with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over the Spaniard to claim the China Open on Sunday for the fourth time in five years. Nadal was assured of replacing Djokovic atop the rankings by reaching the final in Beijing. But the Serb proved too much for Nadal, breaking him in the second game of the first set and again in the first game of the second. He racked up four aces to the Nadal’s two and claimed 19 winners to the Spaniard’s nine. “I needed this win today. I really wanted to get my hands on the trophy and win against Nadal who has been the best player so far in 2013,” said Djokovic, who had lost their last three meetings, including one at the U.S. Open. Djokovic credited his almost flawless serve for the win this time, as well as his ability to keep calm. He said playing doubles also helped, both in sharpening his game and building his confidence.

No change at top of AP poll NEW YORK (AP) — For the fourth straight week, the top five teams in The Associated Press college football poll are unchanged, led by No. 1 Alabama. The top-ranked Crimson Tide received 55 of 60 first-place votes after an easy victory and No. 2 Oregon received the other five after its latest blowout. Clemson is No. 3, followed by Ohio State and Stanford. The Buckeyes and Cardinal were both tested Saturday night and stayed unbeaten. Ohio State rallied to win at Northwestern, 40-30. The Wildcats slipped three spots to No. 19. Stanford held off Washington 31-28. The Huskies dropped only one spot to No. 16. No. 23 Northern Illinois, No. 24 Virginia Tech and No. 25 Missouri moved into the rankings for the first time this season. Arizona State, Mississippi and Maryland dropped out.

Rossi returns to Italy ROME (AP) — Giuseppe Rossi is rejoining Italy’s national team after recovering from injuries that sidelined the forward from New Jersey for nearly two years. The 26-year-old, selected Sunday for World Cup qualifiers at Denmark and home against Armenia, has six goals for the Azzurri in 27 appearances. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a game for Villarreal against Real Madrid in October 2011 and needed three operations before returning in May with Fiorentina. Rossi, who chose to play for Italy instead of the U.S., has six goals in eight games with Fiorentina in all competitions this season. Italy already has clinched its 14 straight World Cup appearance.

Franchitti, fans hurt at IndyCar race in Houston HOUSTON (AP) — Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti fractured two vertebrae and broke his right ankle when his car went airborne into a fence Sunday on the last lap of the Grand Prix of Houston. The accident showered debris into the grandstand, injuring 13 fans and an IndyCar Series official. Franchitti, who also sustained a concussion, was transported by ambulance to a hospital. IndyCar said the four-time series champion would be held overnight, and that a series official was treated for minor injuries. Houston Fire Department spokesman Ruy Lozano said 13 fans were injured, and that 11 were treated on site at Reliant Park. Lozano said two were taken to the hospital for treatment. The accident in Turn 5 was reminiscent of Dan Wheldon’s fatal 2011 crash at Las Vegas in that competitors had to drive through the wreckage. It was a sobering moment for race winner Will Power, who broke his back in Las Vegas crash, and for Scott Dixon, who took control of the IndyCar championship race Sunday but passed by teammate Franchitti’s car and waved in an attempt to get an update on his condition.







E-cigarettes pose danger to young people New survey results reveal a new challenge in the on-going battle against teen smoking. According to the National Youth Tobacco Survey, the use of e-cigarettes among high school students has doubled, from 5 percent in 2011 to 10 percent in 2012. Usage among middle school students also has doubled, increasing to 2.7 percent from 1.4 percent the previous year. In addition, the survey revealed that among teenagers who currently use e-cigarettes, 76 percent are smoking regular cigarettes. Federal health officials have noticed. “We are worried that e-cigarettes will help kids overcome their inhibitions and re-normalize smoking and undermine the progress we have made (in reducing youth smoking),” said Dr. Tim McAfee, director of the Centers for Disease Control’s Office on Smoking and Health. “There is no upside to teens being exposed to e-cigarettes.” This trend is especially troubling for Indiana, one of the smoking states BILL heaviest in the country. Indiana the highest rate STANCZYKIEWICZ has (14 percent) of older teens and young adults, ages 18-25, who have started smoking in the last year, and the 11th worst rate (7 percent) of adolescents, ages 12-17, who have lit up in the last 12 months. E-cigarettes use a heating element, powered by a re-chargeable battery, to Ask your kids if they are transform a liquid seeing or hearing about into a vapor, which then is e-cigarettes at school, inhaled. The from their friends liquid contains nicotine and often or online. Continue is flavored with discussing the dangers fruit, mint or chocolate. E-cigaof smoking. rettes look like a regular cigarette or cigar, although some models are made to look like a pen or even a USB thumb drive to mask their true identity. A new Indiana law bans the sale of e-cigarettes to people under the age of 18. Rep. Matt Lehman, R-Berne, who authored the bipartisan legislation with two other Republicans and three Democrats, explained, “Given their addictive nature, I believe that e-cigarettes should be subject to the same laws as regular cigarettes when it comes to minors.” Despite the law, e-cigarettes are still sold online, increasing their easy availability to youth. A national organization battling teen smoking notes that online sales benefit from marketing using celebrities and You Tube videos depicting e-cigarettes as hip and glamorous. One publicity campaign, for example, includes a cartoon pitchman named, “Mr. Cool.” “This explosion of e-cigarette marketing threatens to undo decades of efforts to deglamorize smoking to kids,” said Matthew L. Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. “The new CDC data show their marketing is enticing kids to start what could become a lifelong addiction to tobacco products.” The trade association for e-cigarettes, the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association, issued a statement, “Electronic cigarettes should not be sold or marketed to minors.” The association also says e-cigarettes are safer for adults than tobacco cigarettes, providing a hit of nicotine without the toxins and other dangerous chemicals present in regular smokes. The industry group says the provision of nicotine through an e-cigarette is no different than a person who enjoys a cup of coffee for a dose of caffeine. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration rebuts those claims, saying the safety of e-cigarettes has not been verified in clinical trials. The FDA this month is expected to propose the first-ever federal regulations of e-cigarettes, while the CDC already offers a warning to teenagers. “We are worried about the adolescent use of nicotine because the adolescent brain is uniquely susceptible to addiction,” said McAfee of the CDC. “And nicotine is harmful to their brain development.” And their lives. According to the Indiana State Department of Health, an e-cigarette cartridge can contain the same amount of nicotine as one-anda-half packs of cigarettes — a dosage that can be lethal to teenagers who use e-cigarettes improperly. Even though Indiana has banned the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and FDA regulations are forthcoming, parents need to remain aware of the growing usage of e-cigarettes by teenagers. Ask your kids if they are seeing or hearing about e-cigarettes at school, from their friends or online. Continue discussing the dangers of smoking. Remind them that the marketing of e-cigarettes as hip and glamorous is false and misleading. While smoking is advancing through technology, old fashioned communication from parents and other caring adults still provides the best chance for preventing youth from lighting up.

Letters to The Editor • We must get the education of our children right To the editor: This is an open letter to the Indiana State Board of Education. For the first time, Oct. 2, my husband and I attended an Indiana State Board of Education meeting. As a teacher, retired for the last five years, I regret that I had never, first-hand, observed your efforts to address the needs of Indiana students. My career involved mainly teaching 4th and 5th graders. I believe in respecting children and their parents, treating every child with dignity, arming them with knowledge, modeling appropriate civility and giving them the tools to grow into confident citizens. Since we were attending the 3rd Legislative Committee Hearing on Common Core State Standards on Oct. 1 in the State Senate Chamber, we decided to stay overnight in Indianapolis and attend the Indiana State Board of Education meeting Oct. 2. For the past several months we have been especially focused on educating ourselves about the Common Core Standards (Point of clarification: The word “state” in “State Standards” is misleading, because they are coming from the federal government!) From the vantage point of having attended both meetings as well as spending 23 years in the classroom, I would appreciate you considering the following: 1. In the process of educating ourselves about CCSS, we attended an informational conference at the University of Notre Dame, Sept. 9. We’re grateful that some of our Indiana legislators and

Dr. David Freitas, member of the Indiana State Board of Education, were present. Data-driven information that exposed the weaknesses of CCSS was well presented. Andrew Kern, founder and president of the CIRCE Institute, which provides research and consulting services to classical educators, stressed the need for children to read great imaginative literature. He said Common Core’s heavy emphasis on informational text stifles creativity. Sandra Stotsky, member of the Common Core Validation Committee, who would NOT sign on to Common Core, explained that Common Core requires, “Over 50 percent of reading instruction must be informational text in K-12.” This reduces time to develop critical thinking skills. Dr. Patrick Deneen, professor of Constitutional Studies at Notre Dame, pointed out, “If we settle for Utilitarian mindset, children will lose the art of ruling self.” He expanded with five Ascending Aims of Educating Our Young: • Introduction of basic facts — truths of nature, language, etc. … • Train in use of these facts — thoughtfulness, critical thinking, scientific experimentation, logic • Civic Education — theory, order, practice of citizenship, parents engaged in school as models • Cultivation of Character — addressing the entire human person, happiness with virtue • Seeking knowledge/truth, driven from within, knowledge for its own sake, sense of wonder

One of the teachers, who addressed your board meeting Oct. 2 on the topic of Social Studies, pointed out the need for students to receive much more instruction on the workings of government/ civics, when he pointed out the low voter turnout. Another teacher addressing the ISBOE meeting who was in favor of Common Core, related that she uses the Indiana State Standards along with the Common Core Standards to establish her curriculum. However, when CCSS is fully implemented only Common Core will be permitted. Superintendent Ritz expressed the need for a “Higher Education Panel to determine if ISTEP is college ready.” Shouldn’t that have been decided when ISTEP was first developed? Shouldn’t the Common Core State Standards be immediately eliminated because they do NOT prepare students for a four-year college degree? “Our children have only one chance to be educated. We must get it right!” This was a very legitimate concern voiced by a parent testifying at the meeting. We emphatically agree with her. Sandra Stotsky pointed out Common Core State Standards are NOT rigorous. They are NOT internationally benchmarked, children canNOT benefit from reading historic documents out of context (in the name of providing [disconnected] informational text). We have Indiana Standards. Let’s strengthen those and not start over. Do not experiment with our Hoosier children. Patricia Geise Lake James

• reeked of the small work of a petty bully. Ditto the closing of the D-Day cemetery in Normandy, France, where more than 9,000 Americans are buried. And this is the president who recently declared that The American People are not political pawns to be used to score political points? Barack Obama must have been an inkling in the prescient mind of H.L. Mencken when the curmudgeon from whom all op-eds flow once described democracy as “the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” While one may sympathize with Obama’s contempt for his congressional adversaries, he may have cut off his own nose with an unforced error of magnified proportions. Spite is unbecoming a president, as Richard Nixon proved in another era of national disruption. But beyond personality, it is baffling to imagine anyone thinking that the way to winning hearts and minds is by disrespecting the nation’s most beloved demographic. I’ve often lamented the prospect of a world without

my parents’ generation, not because they were perfect but because these mothers and fathers take with them a national treasure — their personal experiences and memories of The Great Depression and World War II and the lessons of sacrifice, thrift, courage and duty that defined them. In their place, we have a bickering, twittering, snarling, snarky, toxic public square that has contaminated even our highest offices. How surreal it must seem to our oldest and wisest citizens to witness the breaking bad of America. Nearly any but the die-hardest tea party member regrets the shuttering of the U.S. government. It was unnecessary, counterproductive, and punishes all the wrong people — including federal employees, who do yeoman’s work for which they receive little credit. Tying the defunding of Obamacare to the shutdown was folly, which sensible House Republicans knew even as they ignored their better judgment. Even so, the White House and Democrats seem determined to prove their own toughness by punishing the least-deserving. As we approach the next battle over the debt ceiling, would that all of Washington remember the rule of the savvy negotiator: Always leave your opponent an exit.

In-law will be outlaw if she pursues dad DEAR ABBY: My son and his wife, “Carole,” have been married for two years. I was recently introduced to her father, “Ted,” who has been alone for 13 years. Carole told me later in no uncertain terms that I cannot have a romantic relationship with her father. Then she repeated the same thing to him. Do you think it’s right for adult children to dictate to their parents who they can and cannot see? Ted and I are perplexed. We really like each other and would like to see where this relationship could go. We laugh easily together, cook in the kitchen well together, can talk for hours and generally are very compatible. We have both discussed our pasts and have been honest with each other. What’s your opinion? — DESERVES TO BE HAPPY DEAR DESERVES: Before the relationship goes




further, you and Ted should step back and ask yourselves what might happen if this romance doesn’t work out. Would the hurt feelings disrupt the family dynamic? If this can be handled thoughtfully, with DEAR grace and I ABBY maturity, agree that you deserve to be happy.

DEAR ABBY: I have been friends with “Kurt” for many years. We met during Little League, and as we got older we stood up in each other’s wedding. He was my best man. Kurt’s marriage is in trouble because he has a

gambling problem. I feel guilty because I never said anything to him about it when we were together at the casino and he was spending more money than he could afford. I was with him only a handful of times, but I still think I should have spoken up. Should I have? Or wouldn’t it have mattered if I did? Kurt is going to Gamblers Anonymous meetings now, trying to save his marriage. — GUILTY IN WISCONSIN DEAR GUILTY: You could have said something to your friend, but the question is, would Kurt have listened and accepted what you were trying to convey? Your feeling guilty won’t help this situation. Being supportive of your longtime friend and making sure that when you’re together there is no wagering happening (i.e., on sporting events) would be helpful.

Nuclear stress test can uncover disease make your heart work hard. The exercise you do on the treadmill serves this purpose. When a part of your heart isn’t getting the blood and oxygen it needs to work hard, it can cause the pain called angina. Even when it doesn’t cause pain, it can cause changes in the electroASK cardiogram. DOCTOR K. Your doctor probably the Dr. Anthony ordered nuclear stress because Komaroff test the results of the regular exercise stress test were inconclusive. During a nuclear imaging test, you’ll exercise on a treadmill just as in the first test. Only this time, you’ll get an intravenous

injection of a tracer, which is a slightly radioactive substance. There is so little radiation that there are no ill effects. To take a picture of the tracer in your heart muscle, you’ll lie down as a scanner rotates around you, taking pictures. The scanner tracks blood flow through your heart muscle by detecting the tracer carried to the muscle by your bloodstream. The tracer concentrates in areas of the heart muscle that have a good blood supply. Areas with no blood supply, such as scars from a previous heart attack, won’t collect the particles. The picture of your heart is taken both when you’ve just finished exercise and when you’re at rest. An abnormality that occurs during exercise, but not at rest, indicates that you have coronary artery disease. It also shows what part of the heart muscle is being starved of blood. That indicates which arteries likely are blocked.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I had a heart attack last year. I recently had a follow-up exercise stress test. Now my doctor wants me to have a nuclear stress test. What does this entail? What information will it provide? DEAR READER: Nuclear stress tests are similar to exercise stress tests. During an exercise stress test, a patient gets an electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood pressure readings, and is monitored as he or she walks on a treadmill. An exercise stress test indicates whether the heart gets enough blood and oxygen when it’s working at its hardest. The test is usually done if a patient has symptoms of coronary artery disease (CAD), or if the patient’s doctor wants to assess the effectiveness of the prescribed treatment. If you have narrowing of the coronary arteries that feed the heart muscle, you may have no symptoms until you


Your doctor will check whether abnormalities present under stress disappeared once the stress passed. This difference would suggest a risk of coronary artery disease. In people with CAD, insufficient blood flow occurs under stress, but not otherwise. Abnormalities that appear on both sets of images indicate old heart damage. The next step after an abnormal nuclear stress test is often a cardiac catheterization. This gives a picture of the heart’s arteries and can spot any blockages. Sometimes the blockages can be opened up during the catheterization, using the technique called angioplasty and stenting. So the nuclear stress test helps determine whether the blood supply to some part of the heart muscle is threatened. DR. KOMAROFF is a professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is
