Storm victims plead for aid

GOOD MORNING State Supreme Court deciding fewer cases INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Supreme Court has continued a trend of deciding fewer cases from among the declining number of appeals being made to the high court. The court’s annual report released this month shows it issued 78 rulings on the 868 cases that were appealed to the five justices during the one-year period ending June 30. That’s down from 90 opinions issued the previous year and 122 a decade ago. The court also is picking from among fewer cases being appealed — 963 requests during the 2011-12 term and 979 appeals 10 years earlier. Chief Justice Brent Dickson said he can’t explain why the number of appeals reaching the court has gone down. “I don’t know that there’s any particular reason other than to say more people are satisfied with their trial court decisions,” Dickson said. At least three of the five justices must agree to hear an appeal for the state’s Supreme Court to take up the case. Dickson, who joined the bench in 1986 and became chief justice in 2012, said the court is most likely to consider a case if a state appeals court ruling makes a law interpretation rather than if the appeals court was deciding whether a county court made a mistake. “If … the Court of Appeals reaches a decision in which they make a call, the Supreme Court may well say, ‘They may or may not have gotten that right, but we don’t want to take resources away from our other responsibilities and address that,’” he said. The Supreme Court’s annual report tallied 1.6 million new cases filed during the year period in all courts across the state. The Indiana Constitution guarantees litigants the right to one appeal. Except in death penalty and certain tax cases, those appeals are first heard by the 15-member Indiana Court of Appeals, which issues rulings by three-judge panels.

East Noble salutes vets BY OCTAVIA LEHMAN

KENDALLVILLE — East Noble High School freshman Dylan Carroll told guests during a Veterans Day program at the school Monday that they were not there to be entertained, but to remember the important sacrifices made to their country. Students and faculty at East Noble honored area veterans Monday, sharing songs and poems about sacrifice and honor. Student Brandon Joest sang “American Soldier,” as recorded by Toby Keith, and the advanced concert band played the “Armed Forces Salute” for all visiting veterans. U.S. Army World War II veteran Gene Cogan of Avilla spoke about his experience at Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Cogan said he joined the service on a suggestion, and after 13 weeks of training he was encouraged to sign up for the unit that eventually would become a part of the raid on Normandy. He served as a scout in Company B, 115th Regiment of the 29th Infantry Division. His unit landed on Omaha Beach, a five-mile stretch of sand in Normandy. During the raid, Cogan was hit by a fragment shell from a German

mortar. He said he didn’t realize that he was hit, until he touched his neck and saw the blood. He put on a handkerchief and went on with his business. Later, Cogan was shot in the

left shoulder and the right leg. Recounting his thoughts at the time, he said, “To hell with this, I’m going home.” The assembly audience laughed at the statement. SEE EAST NOBLE, PAGE A8

TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) — Bloated bodies lay uncollected and uncounted in the streets and desperate survivors pleaded for food, water and medicine as rescue workers took on a daunting task Monday in the typhoon-battered islands of the Philippines. Thousands were feared dead. The hard-hit city of Tacloban resembled a garbage dump from the air, with only a few concrete buildings left standing in the wake of one of the most powerful storms to ever hit land, packing 147-mph winds and whipping up 20-foot walls of seawater that tossed ships inland and swept many out to sea. “Help. SOS. We need food,” read a message painted by a survivor in large letters on the ravaged city’s port, where water lapped at the edge. There was no one to carry away the dead, which lay rotting along the main road from the airport to Tacloban, the worst-hit city along the country’s remote eastern seaboard. At a small naval base, eight swollen corpses — including that of a baby — were submerged in water brought in by the storm. Officers had yet to move them, saying they had no body bags or electricity to preserve them. Authorities estimated the typhoon killed 10,000 or more people, but with the slow pace of recovery, the official death toll three days after the storm made landfall remained at 942. However, with shattered communications and transportation links, the final count was likely days away, and presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda SEE STORM, PAGE A8

Veterans groups take time to remember BY BOB BRALEY

KENDALLVILLE — Every veteran has a story to tell. Members of two Kendallville veterans organizations gathered Monday to share some of those stories on Veterans Day. A ceremony to honor those who served in the U.S. military and returned home began with prayer and a presentation and ended with a meal, and a chance to share stories. The event was a combined effort of Francis Vinyard Post 2749 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion Post 86, both in Kendallville. The VFW post hosted the ceremony and lunch. After saying the Pledge of Allegiance and being led in an opening prayer, Legion Post 86 Commander Sam Campbell presented a plaque to Families For Freedom for the group’s work to support soldiers during their service overseas. Keynote speaker Mark Mendenhall, a U.S. Army veteran of Iraq in 2005 and 2006, said he had received packages from Families For Freedom while he served, and that his son serving in the military gets them now. Mendenhall shared stories of Kendallville area veterans he had spoken with over the years, starting with two World War I veterans he had known. “For lack of a better term, they were a walking history book,” he said. He got to know a Kendallville area World War II veteran who had become a prisoner of war in Germany. “He told me they were treated

Program to help veterans become teachers FORT WAYNE — On Veterans Day, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz announced two new programs aimed to help military veterans and current soldiers. Ritz is joining with state Sen. Sue Glick, R-LaGrange, to propose a new program

designed to attract veterans to earn teaching degrees. Ritz also announced a new literacy partnership with the Indiana National Guard. During stops in Fort Wayne and South Bend Monday, Ritz said she and Glick are drafting legislation for a new scholarship program known as

Second Service. It would offer two- and four-year scholarships and convert military training and experience into college credits to help Indiana veterans earn degrees in K-12 education from universities in Indiana. A participant would be required to teach in an Indiana school for one year.

“It looks like a win-win if we can put it together — both for education and the people coming back from service,” Glick said Monday about Second Service. Glick said the proposal would work together with other recent changes allowing college credit for SEE PROGRAM, PAGE A8

Cromwell woman BLUFFTON — Police arrested a woman with a Cromwell address after a a three-vehicle crash in Wells County Thursday morning, The News-Banner of Bluffton reported. Donna J. Barnes, 59, was charged with possession of stolen property, driving with a suspended license and driving without insurance. A Wells County Sheriff’s Department report said Barnes was driving north on S.R. 1 when her 2002 Ford Windstar van hit the rear of a car that was stopped for a traffic signal at U.S. 224. The impact pushed the car into a third car. Police investigating the crash said the license plate on Barnes’ van did not match the vehicle, and that a woman in Fort Wayne had reported the plate was stolen. A police report also said Barnes told the officer that she was homeless.



Briefs • Part of satellite falls into ocean BERLIN (AP) — This time it splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean — but what about next time? The European Space Agency says one of its research satellites re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere early Monday on an orbit that passed over Siberia, the western Pacific Ocean, the eastern Indian Ocean and Antarctica. The 1,100-kilogram (2,425-pound) satellite disintegrated in the atmosphere but about 25 percent of it — about 275 kilograms (600 pounds) of “space junk” — slammed into the Atlantic between Antarctica and South America, a few hundred kilometers from the Falkland Islands, ESA said. It caused no known damage. The satellite — called the GOCE, for Gravity field and Ocean Circulation Explorer — was launched in 2009 to map the Earth’s gravitational field. The information is being used to understand ocean circulation, sea levels, ice dynamics and the Earth’s interior. The satellite had been gradually descending in orbit over the last three weeks after running out of fuel Oct. 21.

Israeli hard-liner Lieberman returns as foreign minister JERUSALEM (AP) — Hard-line Israeli politician Avigdor Lieberman, one of Israel’s most powerful and polarizing figures, was reappointed as the country’s foreign minister Monday after being cleared of all charges in a long-running corruption case. He re-emerges as a player at a critical time in U.S.-backed peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Known for his outspoken and critical views of the Palestinians, he is likely to further complicate an already troubled negotiating climate with the Palestinians. Lieberman stepped down as foreign minister late last year when he was indicted on graft charges.

People • ABC correspondent says she will have double mastectomy NEW YORK (AP) — A month after undergoing a mammogram on “Good Morning America,” ABC’s Amy Robach said Monday she has breast cancer and will have a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery this week. The 40-year-old correspondent admitted she had been reluctant to have the public mammogram but went ahead after “GMA” anchor Robin Roberts told her that if the story saved one life, it would be worth it. “It never occurred to Robach me that life would be mine,” she said. Robach joined ABC in 2012 from NBC, where she was a “Weekend Today” host. She logged considerable time with the cast of ABC’s top-rated morning show, filling in for Roberts, who has fought back from a serious blood and bone marrow disease. Producers chose her for the mammogram story because, at 40, she’s at the age when it’s recommended that women regularly check for breast cancer. Married with two children and a full-time job, Robach said she had found plenty of reasons to put it off. In her original story, she emerged from her mammogram telling Roberts and her “GMA” colleagues that it hurt much less than she thought it would.


Country pauses to honor those who sacrficed BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Across the nation, Americans commemorated Veterans Day with parades, wreath-laying ceremonies, monument dedications and other events Monday. Richard Velez is a veteran who makes it clear: He didn’t serve in a war, but he welcomed home family and friends — brothers all — who had seen “the beast” that is combat. At the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen, Velez joined hundreds of others on Veterans Day. Velez, a 51-year-old from Dover who served with the Army from 1980-86, rode to the peaceful patch of land along the Merrimack River with a Vietnam vets motorcycle club. “This is a place of brokenness,” he said. “Just being here, you find that peace that you’re looking for, that you need. And you feel less broken.” Veterans — those who have seen combat and those who haven’t — take special solace in the cemetery’s green expanses, he said. They find their connection in the orderly rows of headstones that remember comrades from the Civil War to the present. “It’s the brotherhood,” he said. “We never rest because of the beast we’ve seen. And once you’ve seen the beast, you can’t unsee it.” At Arlington National Cemetery, President Barack Obama paid tribute to those who have served in the nation’s military, including one of the nation’s oldest veterans, 107-year-old Richard Overton. “This is the life of one American veteran, living proud and strong in the land he helped keep free,” Obama said. Overton was among those in the audience for the outdoor ceremony

on a crisp, sun-splashed Veteran’s Day. Earlier in the day, Overton and other veterans attended a breakfast at the White House. A retired Air Force colonel who spent more than five years as a prisoner of war says a new permanent wall commemorating Vietnam veterans in Enid, Okla., will offer healing, love and unity. Col. Lee Ellis was the keynote speaker at the dedication of the Woodring Wall of Honor and Veterans Park at Woodring Regional Airport in Enid. The wall had been part of a traveling exhibit but will now become Oklahoma’s official memorial to those who served in the Vietnam war. The wall is a smaller replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington. Ellis was a Vietnam prisoner of war with Arizona Sen. John McCain. He says the wall will help ensure that the men and women who served are never forgotten. The memory of the Sept. 11 attacks surfaced at New York City’s Veterans Day parade, with families of World Trade Center victims carrying a giant American flag along Fifth Avenue amid shouts of “Don’t forget 9/11.” “When I was first elected mayor, there was still smoke rising from the World Trade Center site,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at a pre-parade wreathlaying ceremony. “And that was a very difficult time, when men and women in the armed forces were stepping up to confront new threats to ensure our safety.” Organizers called the New York celebration, which has been renamed America’s Parade, the nation’s largest Veterans Day event.

Syrian refugees recruited to join fight against Assad


to more than 100,000 Syrian refugees. Andrew Harper, head of the Jordan office of the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR, which runs the camp, says he has heard reports of rebel recruitment but has seen no evidence. “If we see anything on the recruitment or the fighters coming into the camp, we will notify the Jordanian government,” he told The Associated Press. “The camp is for the Syrian refugees, not the fighters, and we must ensure that its neutrality and impartiality is kept.” When an AP reporter told him of instances of overt recruitment witnessed by AP in the camp, Harper expressed surprise. “We can’t afford to have anybody in the camp, except civilians. But what I’m hearing is seriously alarming.” A Jordanian Cabinet official also expressed surprise when told how overt the recruitment has become. “If anyone is recruited in Zaatari, we will take action because this is a violation of the law,” he said. He spoke on condition of anonymity as he wasn’t authorized to speak about the issue. An AP reporter visiting Zaatari found rebels from the Western-backed Free Syrian Army unabashed in talking about their search for new fighters, which they say has brought in dozens of recruits in past months. Other fighters visit the camp often to see family living there and take a short break from the war.


ZAATARI CAMP, Jordan (AP) — In a makeshift mosque in a trailer in this sprawling camp for Syrian refugees, a preacher appeals to worshippers to join their countrymen in the fight to topple President Bashar Assad. In another corner of the Zaatari camp, two men draped in the Syrian rebel flag call on refugees through loudspeakers to sign up for military training. Rebels in the camp freely acknowledge recruiting fighters in the camp in a drive that has increased since the summer, trying to bolster rebel ranks in the face of stepped up offensives by Assad’s forces just across the border in southern Syria. Recruiting is banned in Zaatari, and the rebel activities put Jordanian officials and United Nations’ officials running the camp in a delicate position. Wary of further increasing tensions with the government in neighboring Syria, Jordan has sought to keep its support of rebels under the radar, officially denying that any training of anti-Assad fighters takes place on its soil, though both Jordanian and American officials have acknowledged it does. For the U.N., the recruitment mars what is supposed to be a purely humanitarian mission of helping the streams of Syrians fleeing the 2 ½-year-old civil war, which activists say has killed more than 120,000 people. Zaatari, only 16 kilometers (10 miles) from the Syrian border, is home

LAGRANGE — Later this month, Lakeland High School principal Eva Merkel will travel to Indianapolis to learn if she’s been named Principal of the Year by the Indiana Association of School Principals. Regardless of the outcome, Merkel said already considers herself a winner just for being selected as one of the state’s 12 finalists for the award. Last month, the IASP announced that Merkel had been named the High School Principal of the Year for District 3 in northeast Indiana. A student who graduated from Lakeland last year nominated Merkel for the award. “The biggest honor is that a student nominated me and got this whole process started,” Merkel said. “And to be honored by my colleagues, to be chosen for the district is awesome. I know it’s cliche to say it, but just to be nominated is an honor. But it’s brought some recognition to the school, too, and I think that’s important because we’re doing good things.” On Sunday, Nov. 24, Merkel and the other 11 nominees will gather in

LCCF partnering for new holiday campaign Historical society plans annual meeting New physician joining LAGRANGE — The LaGrange County Community Foundation again is partnering with the Olive B. Cole Foundation and community donors this holiday season in creating a special campaign to help feed hungry families through the LaGrange County Clothes and Food Basket. Thanks to a gift from the Olive B. Cole Foundation, the 2013 LCCF “We Give Thanks” Community Challenge will offer a dollar-for-dollar match for community donations to the effort, up to a total of $10,000. The campaign will run from Thanksgiving week through the Christmas and New Year holidays. The goal of the third annual campaign is to raise a $20,000 grant for the all-volunteer LaGrange clothing and food pantry. The campaign is asking donors to the LaGrange County Community Foundation to include the words, “We Give Thanks” on the memo line. Cash donations should be accompanied with donor contact information and written instructions directing the gift to We Give Thanks. No administrative fees will be deducted from any donations directed to the campaign. All donations plus the match will be granted in January to the Clothes and Food Basket. For more information, contact the LaGrange County Community Foundation at 463-4363. Its mailing address is 109 E. Central, Suite No. 3, LaGrange, IN 46761.

Family history project launched KENDALLVILLE — A project to preserve local family histories started this month at Kendallville Public Library. Through November and December, adults are invited to submit their family stories to the library. They will be compiled into a book kept in the Russell Frehse Genealogy Room. Stories should be typed and double-spaced, not handwritten. Photos are optional and must include where and when they were taken and who is in them. Also during November, families can be part of the library’s Photo Pennant Display. Families giving or lending a photo to the library will be included in a special display.

Questions may be directed to the library at 343-2010.

looked at each member of my family — all carrying burdens of their own. Yet there they sat, strong and in good health, all smiling expectantly, nodding in agreement. It was then I realized that, at some point during my year of tears, I had simply stopped living, stuck in the rut of my pain. Something had to change. As we bowed our heads to pray, the prayer found in the third chapter of Habakkuk became my own that day: “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord. I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Lord God is my strength.” We returned home a few days later, and I decided to start a “blessings” journal. Though my heart remained heavy, I looked harder to find the good things in my life — things for which I was thankful — and I wrote them down. The first few months were a struggle, not because there was nothing to record, but because my anger and grief kept surfacing. I could not see beyond the pain. I still wanted to hurt those who had wronged me. Yet in time, this simple writing exercise changed me. I began noticing things I had often overlooked, or taken for granted. The bright red cardinal perched on the ledge outside my kitchen window went into my blessings journal. And when I stood in line at the grocery store and overheard the delightful sounds of a baby laughing, I added that to my list. The intricate shape of a leaf. The smile of a stranger at the gas station. Fresh linens on the bed. The moon’s path across the water. All these simple things went into my blessings journal. And a curious thing happened. Whenever I started counting my blessings, my heart filled up with gratitude, leaving little room for anything else.

military training. With Mideast wars winding down, Glick said, “We’re having more and more of these young people coming back from the military, and we’re helping we can get them trained and employed as soon as possible.” “I want to ensure that the men and women who have served our country as airmen, Marines, sailors and soldiers have an opportunity to serve our state and, ultimately, our nation, as educators,” Ritz said. “The Second Service incentive program would offer financial assistance and college credits to any post 9-11 veteran who has

a strong desire to continue serving Hoosiers in the classroom.” Ritz added, “Veterans have the skills, experiences and work ethic needed to manage a classroom. They understand what it means to serve their community, and I can’t think of a group of individuals who are as dedicated to the mission of service as veterans. They deserve an opportunity to serve our community, and I hope the Second Service incentive program will attract veterans to help educate our next generation of Hoosiers.” Earlier this year, Glick authored a new law requiring state colleges and universities with at least 200

veteran students to establish a “combat to college” program, creating administrative and educational assistance for those students, including credit for military training. Ritz also has formed a new literacy partnership with the Indiana National Guard. “Boots for Books will give Indiana National Guard soldiers the opportunity to work with students in 30 schools and 30 after-school programs across Indiana to ensure students are reading by third grade,” Ritz said. She said it is part of “efforts to build a culture of readers in Indiana through our Hoosier Family of Readers initiative.”

Authorities said at least 9.7 million people in 41 provinces were affected by the typhoon, known as Haiyan elsewhere in Asia but called Yolanda in the Philippines. It was likely the deadliest natural disaster to beset this poor Southeast Asian nation. “Please tell my family I’m alive,” said Erika Mae Karakot as she stood among a throng of people waiting

for aid. “We need water and medicine because a lot of the people we are with are wounded. Some are suffering from diarrhea and dehydration due to shortage of food and water.” Philippine soldiers were distributing food and water, and assessment teams from the United Nations and other international agencies were seen Monday for the first time.

What surprised Mendenhall about the story was that he didn’t hear it until one of the friends told it at the funeral for Mendenhall’s father. “He had told me lots of other stories of his service, but not that one,” Mendenhall said.

Following a 21-gun salute and closing prayer, those gathered shared a meal, with an instruction from VFW Post Commander Ron Coleman to talk to the veterans there and share stories.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Preservationists hoping to save a nearly century-old Indianapolis movie theater are encouraged by the start of work to install a new roof to stabilize the building. The Rivoli Theatre has been vacant for more than two decades and has deteriorated badly. But supporters hope the new roof that will cover the auditorium and stage areas is the first step in revitalizing the facility.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the theater is a key part of efforts to revitalize Indianapolis’ Near Eastside. It was built as a single-screen movie house with 1,500 seats, but preservationists envision transforming it into an arts-themed community center focusing on youth and education. James Kelly of the Rivoli Center for the Performing Arts Inc. estimates fully restoring the building could cost $5 million.

“That was my honorable career,” Cogan said. In 2011, Cogan traveled to France for the 60th anniversary of D-Day. It was there he befriended Caron Duvall, a woman from ViervilleSur-Mer, France, the first French community liberated by GIs on June 6, 1944. Duvall was instrumental in Cogan receiving the French Legion of Honor, the highest award the French government can bestow. He was the only American to attend a remembrance program at Vierville Sur-Mer in 2011. After the program, an older woman gave him a pin with the American and French flags together. “She said, ‘Thank you, thank you’ and cried,” Cogan said. “I knew then that she had lived in the area” while the Germans were in control, he added. He shared the poem “A Place in Normandy,” which he wrote after first visiting the cemetery at Omaha Beach, where 9,000 crosses line the sand. “I stood among the crosses of my brothers …” Cogan said. “Why did they (die) and not me? I have no answer to the question, but a little bit of me rests with my brothers at a place in Normandy.” During the program, representatives from the Kendallville American Legion post presented the East Noble School Corp. with three new flags: the American flag; a prisoner of war flag; and a flag of the state of Indiana. East Noble student Jake Peterson acknowledged the lives of two Kendallville men who lost their lives in Iraq, Sgt. Christopher T. Monroe in 2005 and Specialist Nicholas Hartge in 2007. The crowd honored all veterans attending with a standing ovation and remembered those lost with a moment of silence. “I am proud to come from a community that has such heroes,” Peterson said. “I am proud to come from such a school that has such heroes. I’m proud to come from a state, a region, a country to have such heroes. I am proud to be an American.” As Peterson closed the ceremony, he asked the audience, “What does sacrifice mean to you?”

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Eight straight wins are not enough for the perfect Pacers. They have far bigger plans. The NBA’s last unbeaten team remained undaunted Monday night, getting 23 points from Paul George and the first triple-double of Lance Stephenson’s career to run past Memphis 95-79 and complete a brutal five-game in seven-day stretch with a sweep. Indiana extended its franchisebest start to 8-0, becoming the seventh team to achieve the feat since 2000 and the 18th team in league history to start a season 8-0, according to STATS. “Everything we’re shooting for is attainable, but we’ve got a long way to go, a lot of work to do,” coach Frank Vogel said. “It was probably our most complete game.” The Pacers made no secret of this season’s plan — dethroning two-time defending NBA champion Miami. The best way to

do that, they figured, was earning the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and so far, nobody has been able to touch them. The Pacers already have a 3½-game lead over Miami and Atlanta in the East. Indiana is showing no sign of slowing down, either. Rather than look fatigued after back-to-back wins last Tuesday and Wednesday and two more back-to-back wins Friday and Saturday, something Vogel said he had never been part of previously, the Pacers appeared to get stronger Monday. They again dominated the glass, outrebounding Memphis 30-15 in the first half and finishing with a 45-32 advantage. They again relied on suffocating defense, which held Memphis (3-4) to a season-low point total and nearly 20 points below its season scoring average (98.5). And again they were content to share the honors. George scored seven points

during a key 9-3 stretch to close out the third quarter. That gave Indiana a 72-55 lead. Stephenson, who is playing the best basketball of his career, finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds, a career-high 12 assists and only one turnover. Roy Hibbert added five more blocks to his league-leading total (35), George Hill finished with 13 points in his third game back from a hip injury and Luis Scola added 12 points off the bench. Indiana could be making things even tougher for opponents soon, too. Vogel said before the game that former All-Star Danny Granger, who once led the Pacers in scoring for five straight seasons, will begin working out Tuesday and could return to practice as soon as Wednesday. Vogel did not say when Granger would return to the rotation. Granger has not played this season because of a strained left calf.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, right, runs after a catch past St. Louis Rams corner-

back Cortland Finnegan during Sunday’s loss to the Rams.

No time to dwell on loss INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Chuck Pagano was just as disgusted with the game tape he watched Monday morning as he was with the Colts’ live performance Sunday afternoon. It stunk. But the Colts can’t worry about the past now —certainly not with a Thursday night game at Tennessee. “When you’re out there on the field and you make a great play, that’s fine. You’ve got to put that play behind you. When you go out there and you stub your toe and you make a bad play, you’ve got to put it behind you,” defensive end Cory Redding said. “This is the same thing as far as going to the next game. Players and coaches have no choice after enduring the team’s worst home loss in two decades, 38-8 at the hands of the Rams. Outsiders, on the other hand, are now taking a hard look at some

of the problems that have been masked by the fact that Indy (6-3) still holds a two-game lead in the AFC South: — The power running game has struggled, and it was never more apparent than Sunday when the Colts had 18 yards rushing. Andrew Luck accounted for 17 of the yards, while Indy ran for a measly 1.3 yards per carry. Trent Richardson’s rushing average dipped to 2.8 yards since he joined the Colts in September. — The rebuilt offensive line, which was supposed to protect Luck better this season, has allowed 22 sacks in nine games, one more than the same span last year. It went into Sunday allowing Luck to be hit 63 times, tied for third-most in the league. Those numbers put the Colts on pace to virtually match, or surpass, last year’s disturbing totals of 41 sacks and more than 100 quarterback hits. SEE COLTS, PAGE B2


Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano looks on during Sunday’s NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams.

SOUTH BEND (AP) — Michigan State coach Suzy Merchant would have loved to see how the 19th-ranked Spartans would have looked playing No. 6 Notre Dame with 6-foot-7 center Madison Williams in the game. She couldn’t take the chance. The redshirt junior could have helped on the boards as the Irish (2-0) used a 52-29 rebounding advantage to beat the Spartans 81-62 on Monday night. Williams has played only 25 minutes in three seasons at Michigan State because of knee injuries and Merchant is making sure she doesn’t rush her. “Madison Williams would have made a major difference in that game, especially on the boards. That kid is really, really talented,” Merchant said. Without her, the Spartans struggled to keep Notre Dame off the offensive glass. The Irish grabbed 24 offensive rebounds, which they converted into 25 second-chance points. “We knew coming into this game that one of their strongest points was offensive rebounding so that’s what we worked on all week,” Annalise Pickrel said. “Then tonight we just. ... They got consecutive offensive rebounds. One is not fine, but one’s enough, but then we didn’t box out from there. So it just turned into chaos. “They’re a big athletic team, but we weren’t pushing them back.” Becca Mills scored 15 points and Pickrel had 11 points and 12 rebounds for Michigan State (0-1). Taya Reimer had 19 points and 13 rebounds, and Jewell Loyd scored 22 points and added nine rebounds for the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame improved to 28-5 overall — and 9-1 at home — against ranked teams over the past two seasons. The Irish have won 15 of their last 16 games in November, with the only loss coming to No. 1 Baylor in 2011.

Nadal beats Federer at ATP World Tour Finals LONDON (AP) — Novak Djokovic capped off his season by defending his ATP World Tour Finals title with an impressive 6-3, 6-4 win over Rafael Nadal on Monday night. There’s no doubt Djokovic is the man to beat on indoor hard courts. And just for the record, his 22 consecutive wins to finish 2013 matched top-ranked Nadal’s best stretch of the year. Djokovic’s winning run started after a U.S. Open final defeat to Nadal, and during a span when the

Spaniard replaced him atop the rankings. “The most positive thing that I can take from those 2½ months is the fact that I managed to regroup after a few big losses against Nadal, especially in Roland Garros, U.S. Open final and Wimbledon final,” said Djokovic, who became the seventh player to win the elite season-ending tournament at least three times. His victory in London denied Nadal the only big trophy missing from his resume. SEE TENNIS, PAGE B2

Bad day at worst time ruins Kenseth’s season AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Matt Kenseth did his best to put on a brave face following his worst performance of the season, which just happened to come at the worst possible time in his championship battle with Jimmie Johnson. Dark sunglasses shielded the disappointment in Kenseth’s eyes when he climbed from his car. His voice cracked just once during what was clearly a concession speech. Instead of harping on the negatives — he was saddled with an ill-handling car all day at Phoenix International Raceway and every fix crew chief Jason Ratcliff attempted only made it worse — Kenseth focused on the positives. His first season with Joe Gibbs Racing has been the best of his 14 years in the Sprint Cup Series. He won a career-best seven races, added a Southern 500 victory to his resume and crossed Chicago, Darlington, Kentucky and New Hampshire off the list of active tracks where he’d never won a Cup race. And at 41 years old, a decade removed from his only Cup championship, Kenseth was in the mix again. Although Kenseth is still mathematically eligible to win the title, his 23rd-place finish at Phoenix sends him into Sunday’s finale at Homestead trailing Johnson by 28 points. It would take a massive failure for Johnson not to win his sixth championship. “You hope to go down to Homestead and race for it on performance,” Kenseth said. “On the other hand, I’m extremely

happy. I’m really, really happy with my team. It’s a special group of guys. We’ve had just an amazing, incredible season and we still have one week left. Hopefully, we can go to Homestead and go down there and contend for a win.” It was an admirable post-race performance on an abominable day for Kenseth and the entire No. 20 team that came out of nowhere at a time when there was zero margin for error. The rest of the garage had noted from the opening practice Friday that Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports team had shifted into another gear.

During the final minutes, they even serenaded Pacers players with chants of “un-de-feat-ed.” But the Pacers aren’t content with that. “We are not looking at this 8-0 start,” said George, the NBA’s Most Improved Player last season. “We want to enjoy it, but we must let our strengths continue to lead us to victory. Everybody helps, everybody is doing their job.” For Memphis, it was a rough night. Marc Gasol, who showed his frustration at times

during the second half, finished with 15 points and six rebounds. The only other Memphis players to reach double-figures were two guys with Hoosier State ties — Zach Randolph had 12 and Mike Conley added 11. The Grizzlies shot just 41 percent from the field and were only 6 of 19 from 3-point range, and after a 15-3 run put Memphis in an 80-55 deficit just 83 seconds into the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies never had a chance. “They’re the best defensive team in this league, they really compress the paint, it was hard for any of us guards to get in there and make anything happen,” Conley said.

Sprint Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday.

tion it was poised to do the same at Phoenix. Joey Logano said Johnson was in “kill mode” and Kenseth teammate Denny Hamlin sounded as if a Johnson title was inevitable. “I think everyone in the garage knows that they can turn it up at will, and this is typically the time of year they start doing that, especially when they are in championship contention,” Hamlin said. With the pressure on, Kenseth had to be perfect. Instead, his car was terrible from the start, every adjustment backfired and strategy didn’t play into Ratcliff’s hands. When the crew chief tried to make a call on the fly, it led to a botched pit stop that put Kenseth down two laps

from the leaders. “It’d be great if we came in here and everything worked out like we had on paper, you went out and won the race and go to Homestead tied,” Ratcliff shrugged. “That’s why it’s so hard to win these championships. People work their guts out for them and they’re very rewarding when you do get them.” Ratcliff called it “a pretty rough day,” but noted the No. 20 team had very few of those this year — Kenseth had two engine failures and a crash that contributed to three of his five finishes worse than 23rd this season — and that on this particular Sunday, things just spiraled out of control quickly in a sport that moves at almost 200

mph. “Everybody’s going to say, ‘Oh, the pressure got to them,’” Ratcliff said. “Just poor execution on a track that’s so hard to pass. You’re trying to make up for something that happened earlier and it just snowballs on you.” This is a team that led just 190 laps a year ago when Joey Logano drove the car and Ratcliff won his first race as a Sprint Cup crew chief. This is a team that took Kenseth to New Hampshire, where he’d led 89 laps in 26 previous races and hadn’t finished in the top-five since 2005, and got him to Victory Lane for the first time in his career. The New Hampshire victory marked back-to-back wins to open the Chase and put Johnson on alert. After Johnson moved into the points lead heading into Martinsville, the No. 20 team went into another one of Kenseth’s weaker tracks and delivered a second-place finish that tied the championship race. Sometimes, people just have bad days. Sunday was one of them for Kenseth and crew. It was the wrong day against the wrong opponent, and behind his sunglasses, Kenseth had to be wondering if he’ll ever have an opportunity like this again. But deep down, he knew this season itself was one to be treasured. “Disappointing day here, but yet what a great season,” he said. “I really appreciate this whole group. There’s not a car out here I’d rather be driving than this one. I’m a pretty lucky guy.”

Federer hoping for brighter spell in 2014 LONDON (AP) — A disappointing year ended with another loss for Roger Federer. However, after a mini-resurgence late in the season, though, the former top-ranked men’s player has reason to believe he can still compete with the best again next year. The 32-year-old Federer lost in straight sets to rival Rafael Nadal in the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Finals on Sunday, ending a season in which he has slipped to No. 7 in the rankings and lost in the second round of Wimbledon and the fourth round at the U.S. Open. But he managed to qualify for the ATP finals after a string of good results over the past few months that, in his opinion, bode well for 2014. “I think something is possible for next year,” Federer said after his 7-5, 6-3 defeat to Nadal, his first loss to the Spaniard on an indoor hard court. “I think it was a stronger finish than I thought it was going to be in Basel, Paris and London. I’m more positive now looking ahead than I would have been a few months ago, when I wasn’t quite sure what to expect after the U.S. Open.” The 17-time Grand Slam winner, who finished


Roger Federer of Switzerland plays a return to Rafael Nadal of Spain during their ATP World Tour Finals single semifinal tennis match at the O2 Arena in London on Sunday.

2013 with a modest record of 45-17, insisted he has reached a point in his career where his ranking is secondary, as long as he still feels capable of winning big matches and big tournaments. “It’s important to stay within a certain ranking,” Federer said. “But after that I need to make sure I stay competitive, I can hang with the best, and particularly beat the best.”

That has not often been the case this year, with Federer claiming only four wins over top-10 opponents — beating Juan Martin del Potro twice, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Richard Gasquet — and regularly losing to unseeded opponents. He won his sole title at a grass-court tournament in Germany in June. But the Swiss star was reassured by the fact that his body held up well over the

last three weeks and seems convinced he can take fewer breaks next year. “What I learned is that I can play three weeks pretty easily,” he said. “I played a lot of matches as of late, a lot of three setters, a lot of tennis. From that standpoint, that’s very satisfying, knowing that the body can do it, the mind can do it, life allows it to happen. I’m happy that I have that option, as well, that I know I can play three weeks in a row because I remember (Andre) Agassi didn’t do that at all any more toward the end of his career. He used to play one, maybe two, he would always pull out the third week if there was something planned.” Federer remained vague about the tournaments he intends to play in 2014, saying his schedule will be geared toward peaking at the four majors. “Clearly Grand Slams are going to be part of my highlights, hoping to sort of make sure I play my best there with some selective other events that I consider important to me, some of the Masters 1000s,” he said. “Then hopefully I have something left for the World Tour Finals at the end of next year because that’s clearly a goal.”

TENNIS: Djokovic has beaten Nadal 10 times in 19 finals FROM PAGE B1

Having produced one of the most memorable comebacks in tennis, Nadal lost in a deciding match for the second time at the tour finals and missed the chance to join Andre Agassi as the only players to have won all four Grand Slams, Olympic gold, the Davis Cup and the year-end tournament. “It’s not going to change my career, winning or losing today,” Nadal said. “I am not very disappointed. I know that I was not the favorite for the match, even if I tried with the right attitude, in my opinion, fighting for every moment, trying to be positive in every moment, even if the match was not going the way that I would like.” Monday’s defeat was a strong warning to Nadal, who overhauled Djokovic for the No. 1 ranking last month, that his Serbian rival will be ready to extend his form into next year’s Australian Open,

where he is the three-time defending champion. Djokovic has beaten Nadal 10 times in 19 finals and is unbeaten since losing at the U.S. Open in September. “After the US Open final, of course, I needed to take things slowly and see and analyze what I did wrong, especially in the matches against him, to understand what I need to do in order to win against him,” Djokovic said. “I think the results are showing that we had a great improvement in the last 2½ months.” Djokovic returned superbly from the start to move his Spanish rival around the court and prevent him from dictating the points. Nadal, playing on his less favorite surface, hit only nine winners and was broken three times. “If I can say about one thing that makes the difference in today’s match was the serve — I didn’t serve well, he served well,”

Nadal said. “So in this kind of court, first shot is very important, and he did that first shot much better than me.” Nadal’s return to the No. 1 ranking came on the back of a stunning comeback from a career-threatening knee injury. Since returning in February, the Spaniard has won 75 matches — losing only seven — to win 10 titles including the French Open, the U.S. Open and five Masters 1000 events. But Djokovic proved again that he still has the upper hand on hard courts by extending his head-tohead winning record to 13-7 on that surface against Nadal. “Year-end No. 1 is deservedly in Nadal’s hands because he had two Grand Slam wins, the best season out of all players, the most titles,” Djokovic said. “I think that’s no doubt, cannot question that. I tried to put aside

the calculations and the rankings after U.S. Open and just tried to focus on one tournament at a time, one day at a time. That kind of attitude has helped me to get to where I am at this moment.” Djokovic made an impressive start, hitting powerful groundstrokes to keep Nadal well behind his baseline while limiting his own mistakes. Returning well, the Serb made the most of two of Nadal’s backhand errors to break in the second game. He had another chance in the fourth game after Nadal double-faulted, but was unable to convert. Nadal got into the match from that point. He put Djokovic under pressure with his huge forehands in the next game and two unforced errors from the Serb allowed him to break back and then even at 3-3. But Nadal faltered in his next service game as he served a double-fault at 30-30.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Indianapolis activates Rogers, waives injured DB INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis is hoping rookie receiver Da’Rick Rogers can help jump start their struggling offense. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound rookie was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Monday. The undrafted rookie started training camp with Buffalo and joined Indy’s practice squad Sept. 2. Rogers started his college career at Tennessee and finished at Tennessee Tech. He’ll be back in Tennessee on Thursday night when Indy (6-3) faces the Titans (4-5). Indy has been looking for receiver help since Reggie Wayne tore the ACL in his right knee Oct. 20. To make room on the roster, Indy put safety Larry Asante on the waived-injured list. The Colts also signed receiver Josh Lenz to the practice squad Monday.

Braves planning new suburban stadium in 2017 ATLANTA (AP) — Turner Field had a signature moment right at the start — a trembling Muhammad Ali emerging from the shadows to ignite the flame that opened the 1996 Summer Olympics. In the years that followed, the Atlanta Braves hosted many memorable events of their own, from the World Series and All-Star game to the farewells of Bobby Cox and Chipper Jones. Now, just 17 years after it opened, it looks as though the stadium affectionately known as “the Ted” is headed for extinction, like so many sports facilities in this city. In a stunning announcement, the Braves said Monday they are moving in 2017 to a new 42,000-seat, $672 million stadium about 10 miles from downtown in suburban Cobb County, apparently swayed by a lucrative financial package that was just too good to pass up. Mayor Kasim Reed said the city couldn’t match a $450 million offer from one of Atlanta’s sprawling northern suburbs, though it wasn’t immediately clear how the county of some 700,000 people plans to raise the money or whether it will require a vote of the taxpayers. Mike Plant, the Braves executive vice president of business operations, said the team has not signed a contract with Cobb County, but he’s “100 percent certain it will happen.” The Braves immediately launched a website that said the new stadium would be closer to the geographic center of the team’s fan base. Also, Census data shows the team is moving to a much more prosperous area, with a median household income of about $61,000 and a poverty level of 8.6 percent, compared to $23,000 and nearly 40 percent for the neighborhood surrounding Turner Field. Bucking the trend of pro teams seeking stadiums and arenas closer to the city center, the Braves’ new facility will be part of a 60-acre development near Cobb Galleria mall. Plant compared it to new ballparks in Cincinnati, San Diego and Houston, as well as L.A. Live, which hosts the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers and the NHL’s Kings at Staples Center.

Bruins beat Lightning 3-0; Tampa’s Stamkos injured BOSTON (AP) — Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Tampa Bay star Steven Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Stamkos was hurt with 7:11 to play in the second period. He entered the day tied with Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby as the NHL’s leading scorer. Stamkos got tied up with Boston defenseman Dougie Hamilton and crashed into the right post. His left skate appeared to hit the post first before his right leg crashed into it around the shin area. He tried to get up twice before going down to the ice in pain, grabbing his leg just above the ankle. The Lightning confirmed on the team’s Twitter account that Stamkos suffered a broken right tibia. Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots for his 18th career shutout and second this season. Jarome Iginla added an empty-net goal with 59 seconds left. Anders Lindback, playing just his fifth game of the season, made 23 saves for Tampa Bay, which had a four-game winning streak snapped.

Bradley leads Celtics’ 120-105 win over Magic BOSTON (AP) — Avery Bradley simply couldn’t hold back that little smile. Bradley scored 24 points as the Boston Celtics beat the Orlando Magic for the second time in four days, 120-105 on Monday night. Bradley hit 10 of 15 shots, pairing with Jordan Crawford to provide a solid backcourt duo that carried the Celtics to their fourth straight win after they opened the season with four losses under first-year coach Brad Stevens.

Museum can be asset to region Last weekend’s news that the National Military History Center has overcome its financial challenges should be welcomed by all of northeast Indiana. The giant complex south of Auburn along Interstate 69 offers enormous potential for the entire community. Recently, it was hampered by a burden of debt that now has been lifted by a $450,000 lawsuit settlement. Dean V. Kruse of Auburn established the center a decade ago through his charitable Dean V. Kruse Foundation. It opened as the World War II Victory Museum, housing a large collection of World War II vehicles and memorabilia. Many people still refer to the museum by its original name, but it changed its identity to reflect its expansion to honor all U.S. wars — not just World War II. The museum also houses diverse collections including vintage automobiles, race cars, monster trucks and celebrity cars including a Batmobile and Bat Cycle. General Motors recently donated a huge Bat Cave the company used in nationwide television commercials. Perhaps most important to the region is the museum’s potential for staging all types of events ranging from small gatherings to as many as 3,000 people. Saturday night, the building simultaneously played host to a pair of large events — an elegant, formal banquet inducting new members into the Monster Truck Hall of Fame and a fundraising bingo night that attracted approximately 150 players. The museum has hired local native Christin Loomis as its new operations director. A news release said she already has booked six new events at the museum and has set a goal to have every weekend booked for 2014. In addition to rentals for special events, the museum is working hard to support itself through bingo games on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights each week. A news release describes the payouts as some of the highest in northeast Indiana. The museum’s financial difficulties arose when it borrowed $3 million to erect a handsome building next door to house what was intended to be the Andy Granatelli Racing Museum. Kruse said Granatelli later decided Auburn was farther than he realized from Indianapolis, where he accomplished many of his racing triumphs. Kruse generously allowed Granatelli to back out of the deal, but Kruse was left stuck with the loan and no tenant for the building. Climbing out from the debt for the building leaves Kruse’s museum with a brighter future, and finding a buyer or tenant for it could help even more. Looking forward, museum staff members say they are eager to reach out to the community by speaking and showing videos for schools, universities, service clubs and other local groups. They also are aiming to expand the museum’s use of volunteers. “All efforts are in place for the museum to become a vibrant community facility to promote major events in northern Indiana,” the museum said in its news release. Northeast Indiana should be glad that the museum has survived its threat of foreclosure and will continue as a major asset for the region.

Support small business by ending corporate tax dodging BY GREGG HODGSON

As a business consultant, I’m a fierce advocate for small business. This also means that I have a big problem with things which put small businesses at a disadvantage – for example, when huge corporations hide their profits offshore in order to duck paying taxes here at home. A recent study by the Public Interest Research Group found that the top 100 tax-dodging corporations collectively shelter almost $1.2 trillion in profit offshore. One company, Bank of America, has 316 subsidiaries in tax haven countries. Call me cynical, but I think it’s unlikely that the bank has much business in the Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Mauritius, Gibraltar, the Bahamas, Switzerland, Bermuda, Curacao, Monaco, the British Virgin Islands and other well-known tax havens. This is a shell game only the big guys with teams of lawyers can afford to play. The small businesses I advise plow nearly all of their revenues back into their operations. Never once in more than 20 years of helping businesses thrive have I recommended that an entrepreneur form a dummy corporation in the Caribbean in order to evade a tax bill. Corporate giants already have enough advantages over the little guys. With their gigantic budgets, huge staffs, national distribution networks, quantity discounts, saturation advertising and pinpoint marketing, they’re already clobbering their small competitors. Why should they get an extra leg up through loopholes in the tax code? Yet that’s exactly what they get. In just one example, Congressional investigators recently discovered that Apple, one of the most profitable companies in the world, avoided paying nearly any taxes on $74 billion in profits it claimed were earned in Ireland, a foreign tax haven, from 2009

to 2012. Of course, Apple isn’t the only corporate behemoth working every angle of the tax code to try to duck out on their responsibilities. In recent years, according to a report by Citizens for Tax Justice, such household names as Boeing, Wells Fargo and General Electric have paid no federal income tax at all. All those dodged taxes add up. If only 21 of the top 100 tax-dodging public companies were to pay taxes on the money they hold in tax havens, the U.S. government would have $93 billion more to help our schools, rebuild our infrastructure and defend our country. Big corporations often complain that they pay too much in taxes already, pointing to the 35 percent rate they would pay without all the accounting gimmicks. But according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, America’s biggest and most profitable corporations paid on average just a third of the official rate in 2010. And the federal Office of Management and Budget tells us that the share of total federal revenue coming from the corporate income tax is at a 60-year low. Meanwhile, corporate profits are at record highs and Wall Street is booming. The rest of us, though — including small businesses — aren’t doing nearly so well. Government budget-cuts have cost the jobs of police officers and teachers, delayed road and bridge repairs, and threatened Medicare and nursing-home assistance. As big companies send jobs overseas and lay off American workers, middle-class incomes stagnate and our economy lags. It’s hard to imagine a situation riper for reform. Yet corporations and their political backers are pushing for a so-called “territorial” tax system in which all U.S. corporate profits earned overseas would be permanently free of all U.S. taxes. Corpora-

• tions would have even more incentive to offshore operations (with all their jobs), while any profits still generated in America could easily be assigned to foreign tax havens through accounting sleight of hand. “Territoriality” would inflict two harms: it would increase our nation’s unemployment while reducing revenue needed to make new investments. Luckily there is a real reform bill in Congress, which would raise up to $600 billion from huge corporations over the next 10 years by ending all the shell games played with profits overseas. This is money we could use to invest in America and help level the playing field for small business. Despite what some politicians claim, you can’t truly be a champion for small business unless you’re really committed to leveling the playing field. We should begin by closing corporate tax loopholes and making sure that America’s biggest corporations pay their fair share.

Gay couple might not want to marry DEAR ABBY: I have been with my partner, “Harold,” for 11 years. After gay marriage passed here in Minnesota, Harold told me he didn’t want to marry me because of my credit rating. I find this insulting and humiliating. Worse, the day marriage equality passed, we were with some friends of mine, and he bluntly told them, “I don’t want to marry him because of his FICO score!” It was very embarrassing. I have also learned that Harold has been telling anyone he knows some of my private information. What can I say to him to get him to stop revealing things about me to people we don’t know well? I have asked him plenty of times not to mention my private life to others, but he still brings up information I’d prefer others not know.



Should I end the relationship? I think in some way if I do, that I’ll be better off without DEAR him. But ABBY after 11 years and all that done Jeanne Phillips he’s for me, I’d feel really sad. I’d appreciate any advice you give me. — FRUSTRATED IN MINNEAPOLIS DEAR FRUSTRATED: I agree that after all these years you have much time and emotion invested in your relationship with Harold. Although I’m sure he has many virtues, sensitivity and discretion do not appear to be among

them. It would be interesting to know if Harold would be willing to marry you if your FICO score improved, or if he’s using it as an excuse because he doesn’t want a legal commitment. Even if the two of you did marry, you would still have a partner who lacks discretion about what should be private. If this is important to you, Harold may not be the spouse for you because he isn’t likely to change. Couples counseling could help you decide what to do next. Inquire at your nearest gay and lesbian community center about any seminars it offers for longtime couples on this important subject. Just because people CAN marry doesn’t necessarily mean they should. WRITE DEAR ABBY at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

On this date Nov. 12: • In 1942, the World War II naval Battle of Guadalcanal began. (The Allies ended up winning a major victory over Japanese forces.) • In 1969, news of the My Lai Massacre in South Vietnam in March 1968 was broken by investigative reporter Seymour Hersh. • In 2001, American Airlines Flight 587crashed after takeoff from New York’s JFK International Airport, killing all 260 on board.


Exercise equipment comes in many styles with what to look for in each machine: • An elliptical trainer provides a circular up-anddown motion for a nearly impact-free workout. Levers with handgrips ASK to work the DOCTOR K. upper body are available on many Dr. Anthony models. Look for Komaroff comfortable handlebars and nonslip pedals with curved ridges. • A cross-country ski machine lets you exercise arms and legs simultaneously. The sliding motion is easy on the knees. Look for a wide foot bed for stability.

• A rowing machine works the back, arms and legs simultaneously. Some people find this machine hard on the back. When purchasing one, consider pulley models instead of piston models. • Stair-steppers provide a low-impact workout that approximates climbing stairs. Some models have levers with handgrips to work arms, too. The motion can be hard on the knees. Look for machines that provide independent foot action and are equipped with handrails and large stair platforms. • A stationary bicycle takes no training and is easy to use. Even if you never learned how to ride a bike, you can easily use an exercise bike. You don’t have to worry about keeping the bike balanced. However, an exercise bike can be uncomfortable for long stints. Look for a model with a comfortable, adjustable seat

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m interested in buying a high-quality cardio exercise machine to use at home. Any advice? DEAR READER: Cardio machines offer good aerobic workouts that burn calories and fat. They simulate everything from cycling to walking and running, rowing, skiing and stair climbing. I have an elliptical trainer in my basement: It allows me to exercise every day, regardless of the weather. (And here in Boston, the weather is not always very pleasant.) The price of a cardio machine can vary greatly. How much you pay will depend upon whether a machine is motorized or programmable, and whether it measures heart rate, calories burned, time elapsed, and so forth. Here are some popular types of equipment — along


and toe clips. • A treadmill enables you to walk or run indoors. Opt for a motorized treadmill with a strong motor, a belt that’s long and wide enough for your stride, a sturdy frame with front side rails for safety, and an emergency stop device. You should be able to adjust the speed and grade. Be sure to try out any equipment you are considering purchasing before buying it. Some people just don’t like certain machines. And if you don’t like using it, you won’t. That’s money down the drain. Finally, keep in mind that you do not need any equipment to embark on an effective exercise routine. It’s easier and a lot less expensive to start out walking or jogging. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Recycling water helps fracking Bishops told to avoid ideology, be welcoming MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — When the rain stopped falling in Texas, the prairie grass yellowed, the soil cracked and oil drillers were confronted with a crisis. After years of easy access to cheap, plentiful water, the land they prized for its vast petroleum wealth was starting to dry up. At first, the drought that took hold a few years ago seemed to threaten the economic boom that arose from hydraulic fracturing, a drilling method that uses huge amounts of high-pressure, chemical-laced water to free oil and natural gas trapped deep in underground rocks. But drillers have found a way to get by with much less water: They recycle it using systems that not long ago they may have eyed with suspicion. “This was a dramatic change to the practices that the industry used for many, many years,” said Paul Schlosberg, co-founder and chief financial officer of Water Rescue Services, the company that runs recycling services for Fasken Oil and Ranch in West Texas, which is now 90 percent toward its goal of not using any freshwater for fracturing, or “fracking,” as it is commonly known. Before the drought, “water was prevalent, it was cheap and it was taken for granted,” he added. Just a few years ago, many drillers suspected water recyclers were trying to sell an unproven idea designed to drain money from multimillion dollar businesses. Now the system is helping drillers use less freshwater and dispose of less wastewater. Recycling is rapidly becoming a popular and economic solution for a burgeoning industry.

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Vatican ambassador to the U.S., addressing American bishops at their first national meeting since Pope Francis was elected, said Monday they should not “follow a particular ideology” and should make Roman Catholics feel more welcome in church. Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano noted the challenges from broader society to Christian teaching. He cautioned that the bishops’ witness to faith would be AP undermined if they failed to live simply.

tion has been too narrow and alienating. For the last several years, the public sessions of the fall bishops’ assembly have centered on those issues. This year’s meeting gave the first glimpse of how that message was resonating among American leaders. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, dedicated his speech to persecuted Christians overseas, asking the bishops to make international religious freedom a top priority. He made only a passing reference to the bishops’ own religious freedom campaign, and then only to say that their struggles “pale in comparison” to the plight of Christians and others overseas. Dozens of Catholic charities and dioceses, along with evangelical colleges and others, are suing the Obama administration over a requirement that employers provide health insurance that includes contraceptive coverage. The bishops say the religious exemption to the rule violates the religious freedom of nonprofit and for-profit employers. The issue is expected to reach the Supreme Court. In a news conference after the speech, Dolan said his speech was not a shift away from that fight — but an expansion of it. “It’s almost raised our consciousness to say we can’t stop here,” Dolan said.
