GOOD MORNING Tornadoes, damaging storms sweep across Midwest states WASHINGTON, Ill. (AP) — Dozens of tornadoes and intense thunderstorms swept across the Midwest on Sunday, unleashing powerful winds that flattened entire neighborhoods, flipping over cars, uprooting trees and leaving at least five people dead. Illinois took the brunt of the fury as the string of unusually powerful late-season tornadoes tore across the state, injuring dozens and even prompting officials at Chicago’s Soldier Field to evacuate the stands and delay the Bears game. “The whole neighborhood’s gone. The wall of my fireplace is all that is left of my house,” said Michael Perdun, speaking by cellphone from the hard-hit central Illinois town of Washington, where he said his neighborhood was wiped out in a matter of seconds. “I stepped outside and I heard it coming. My daughter was already in the basement, so I ran downstairs and grabbed her, crouched in the laundry room and all of a sudden I could see daylight up the stairway and my house was gone.” An elderly man and his sister were killed when a tornado hit their home in the rural southern Illinois community of New Minden, said coroner Mark Styninger. A third person died in Washington, while two others perished in Massac county in the far southern part of the state, said Patti Thompson of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. She did not provide details. With communications difficult and many roads impassable, it remained unclear how many people were killed or hurt. The Illinois National Guard said it had dispatched 10 firefighters and three vehicles to Washington to assist with immediate search and recovery operations. In the rural community of 16,000, whole blocks of houses were erased from the landscape and Illinois State Police Trooper Dustin Pierce said the tornado cut a path from one end of town to the other, knocking down power lines, uprooting trees and rupturing gas lines.

Fire ravages former mushroom farm Dozens of firefighters from more than 30 departments fought blaze BY PATRICK REDMOND

BRIGHTON — A massive fire driven by high winds destroyed a large building Saturday night at the former Brighton Mushroom Farm, 8125 E. C.R. 600N, approximately two miles east of Brighton in northeast LaGrange County. The fire broke out in a large building at the back of the property shortly before 9 p.m. It burned throughout the night and into Sunday morning. A total of 34 fire departments and more than 100 firefighters fought to bring the fire under control. There were no injuries reported. “There’s still fire in there we

can’t reach,” Mongo Fire Chief Ike Notestine said, gesturing toward the large structure Sunday morning. “The building is a total loss.” The fire continued to smolder even as the last Mongo fire truck on the scene packed up and left the property around noon on Sunday. The cause of the fire is still unknown. Notestine said the entire structure was completely engulfed in flames when the first fire truck arrived. Notestine, who was on that truck, quickly called for assistance from other surrounding fire departments. SEE FIRE, PAGE A6

Winds whip area; no injuries BY BOB BRALEY

HUDSON — Wind storms whipped through northeast Indiana Sunday afternoon, damaging homes and vehicles and taking down numerous trees and power lines. While damage in other parts of the state was greater, there were reports of heavy damage in some areas, especially in the vicinity of southern Steuben and LaGrange counties. No injuries were reported in the four-county area of northeast Indiana. “It hit us pretty hard,” said Hudson Town Marshal Mark Thrasher. “The wind didn’t last very long, but it was pretty intense.” Power outages also were widespread, scattered throughout Noble, DeKalb, LaGrange and Steuben counties as fallen trees and high winds downed power lines. Heavy rain was also reported in most areas. Indiana Michigan Power reported 72,000 customers without power in Indiana and Michigan due to high winds as of Sunday evening. Gusts of up to 84 mph were reported in the area, a press release said. “Numerous poles were down in areas throughout the service area. Residents of the area should use extreme caution and stay away from fallen poles and power lines,” the press release said. Of the customers without power, about 8,400 were in I&M’s Fort Wayne area, which includes

its customers in the northeast corner counties. “Because damage is still being assessed, estimated times that power will be restored is uncertain,” the press release said. A contingent of I&M crews was to work through the night to isolate and remove hazards and respond to emergency situations. A full force of I&M crews, aided by employees of other electric companies and outside contractors, will work on assessing damage and restoring power

beginning this morning, the company said. As of 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Noble REMC reported 1,600 residences in its service area without power, said Noble County Emergency Management Agency executive director Michael Newton. Residents also reported power outages in Cromwell and Wawaka. The LaGrange County E-911 Dispatch Center reported receiving more than 150 calls in a 45-minute span about trees or power lines down and outages.

LaGrange County REMC, Northern Indiana Public Service Co. and the LaGrange County Highway Department had crews working on clearing roads and restoring power Sunday evening. In rural Kendallville, the winds took the roof off a house with the family inside.

Pokagon State Park maintenance foreman Tim Glasper stands in front of the chillers used to refrigerate the park’s quarter-mile, two-track toboggan slide. The mechanical equipment for the slide, which is maintained by Glasper and his crew, is in a building the size of about a single-car garage adjacent to the track.

LAKE JAMES — Pokagon State Park, with all of its mechanical devices, vast property and just shy of 1 million visitors a year, is like taking care of a small town. The man who makes sure it all works is Tim Glasper, the resident maintenance foreman. “It really is like running a small town,” said Ted Bohman, Pokagon property manager. Glasper is in charge of it all. He’s like the department head of the water, sewer, streets and grounds departments — the park superintendent, so to speak. “Basically my responsibilities are all of the facilities and the grounds,” Glasper said, “as well as Trine State Recreation Area.” (Trine is Pokagon’s sister property.) There’s a sewer plant that handles waste from Potawatomi Inn and a variety of facilities.

See inside the slide Tim Glasper talks more about his job and shows some of the machinery that makes Pokagon’s toboggan run work in video at Scan the QR code to watch it on your tablet or smartphone.

There are three water plants to provide drinking water to the campgrounds and Potawatomi and another two in TSRA. There are roads to be maintained. There’s lots of grass to cut. Trails have to be kept clear for hikers. If you think it’s work putting your dock out in the spring and taking it in in the fall, consider all of the slips just in front of Potawatomi Inn alone. Glasper is quick to point out he has a full-time crew of seven who, he says, make him look pretty good. In peak times, as many as 35-40 work in Pokagon. “There are no I’s out here.

Woman slightly injured in crash KENDALLVILLE — A Kendallville woman was injured when her car was rear-ended by a sport-utility

vehicle Wednesday, the Kendallville Police Department said. Renee M. Medford, 38, of Kendallville was northbound on Main Street at U.S. 6 facing north at 9:07 a.m., her 2012 Kia Soul stopped behind a 2003 Chevy Cavalier, when Medford became distracted. She moved her SUV forward, and it rear-ended the car. The car’s driver, Brandy G. Kline, 38, of Kendallville complained of head pain after the crash, but declined medical treatment. No other injuries were reported.

Vehicle break-in investigated CROMWELL — Someone broke into a vehicle in the 3000 block of North C.R. 900W, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. The theft was reported Thursday at 12:37 and was under investigation.

Cars collide in parking lot KENDALLVILLE — Two cars collided in a parking lot Wednesday, the Kendallville Police Department said. Arie G. Dickerson, 76, of Wolcottville was moving within the parking lot when she failed to see a southbound 2004 Lexus car driven by Becky L. Zimmerman, 74, of Kendallville. Dickerson’s 2006 Pontiac G6 hit the Lexus. No injuries were reported. Damage was estimated at $1,001-$2,500.

Wind is a constant in our lives “Strong wind, possibly gusting to 50 miles per hour,” said the TV weatherman. I’ve experienced stronger wind than that I thought. I say experienced, because we don’t see wind, we see what wind does. Wind OUTDOOR is almost a NOTES constant in our lives. Neil Case There are few times when there isn’t some wind. We see clouds drifting across the sky and know they’re blown by the wind. We hear leaves rustle and know it’s the wind. We see wind blow leaves from the trees in fall and scatter them across the land. Wind makes hot summer days more bearable and lowers the temperature and makes cold winter days colder. When snow falls, wind controls whether it spreads across the land in a blanket of uniform thickness or as alternating areas of minimal cover, even no cover, and drifts. Vultures and soaring hawks circling in the sky are riding updrafts of wind. Migrating birds take advantage of the wind, flying south this time of year when the wind blows from the north, flying north in spring when the wind blows from the south. Cross winds sometimes change the course of migrating birds, driving them far out of their normal range. I saw a brant once on the shore of Cayuga Lake in New York. Brant nest in the far north and fly east or west to winter on the east and west

Gramdpa saw it coming, called out a warning, and we all ran for the basement. When we came back upstairs after the storm had passed, windows were broken, glass scattered everywhere, furniture was overturned and the pillows from a bed on the ground floor were gone, blown out a window, we assumed. Outside, shingles were gone from the roof, trees in the yard were uprooted and laid out on the ground. I’ve been on the bridge outside the pilot house of ships in hurricanes and tornadoes.

Kendallville man sentenced in DeKalb Procedures lost

AUBURN — A Kendallville man was sentenced to 10 years in prison by DeKalb County Judge Kevin Wallace Tuesday for possessing a rifle when he had been convicted of aiding in armed robbery. Brodie DePew, 31, of the 300 block of Silver Street, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, a Class B felony, as part of a plea agreement. According to an affidavit of probable cause for DePew’s arrest, police found a .223 caliber rifle in a truck DePew was operating. DePew had a prior conviction of aiding in armed robbery in Steuben County, the affidavit said. DePew was fined $1. As part of the plea agreement a charge of possession of a schedule I, II, III or IV controlled substance, a Class D felony, was dismissed.

Pence to tour state

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight says a storm that damaged large swaths of his city is the worst he’s seen in 48 years living there. Goodnight said Sunday night he’s grateful no deaths have been reported. He says crews planned to continue work through the night clearing debris and restoring power to residents. The city has declared a state of emergency, and Kokomo police have asked residents to stay home and off the streets. The city police department sent photos of buildings with roofs torn off, a destroyed bank branch and other updates on its Twitter account. Gov. Mike Pence is expected to visit Kokomo and other parts of the state hit by storms today.

plowed into the next wave, the bow disappeared and water surged over the main deck. When we crested a wave the stern, even the screws were raised out of the water. Wind is simply air in motion. It’s gauged by its velocity. Hurricane and typhoon force winds are blowing 74 mph or more. The difference between hurricanes and typhoon is location. Hurricanes are in the Atlantic Ocean, typhoons are in the Pacific. At the other end of the spectrum from the super storms is a gentle wind, a breeze. That we hardly notice except on very hot days. Then we’re likely to comment, “Think how hot this would be if it wasn’t for the breeze.” We frequently comment about the wind. Who hasn’t said, “It’s really not very cold, but the wind makes it raw,” or, “The weather wouldn’t be bad if it

wasn’t for the wind.” Winds of tornadoes are even higher than those of hurricanes and typhoons, over 100 mph. Yes, they have been measured. Storm chasers, people who like to see, photograph and measure tornadoes have placed sensors in the paths of tornadoes, then recovered those sensors after the storms have passed. The highest wind velocity ever recorded, as far as I’ve read, was not in a tornado, however. It was at a weather observatory on Mount Washington, N.H. There were three men in the observatory when that record was se,t and one of the men actually climbed a ladder to the roof of the observatory, then broke ice off the anemometer with a club. The wind speed recorded was 234 mph. NEIL CASE can be reached by email at

during meeting INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Amid the chaos and fighting that has become Indiana’s Board of Education meetings of late, the question has popped up: Why not follow Robert’s Rules of Order? The dry, technical guidebook used to govern the vast majority of public meetings across the nation at all levels of government is conspicuously absent at State Board of Education meetings. Instead, Republican Gov. Mike Pence and Democratic Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz agreed on a different set of rules for running meetings this past May. Order and procedure are often taken for granted in typically staid public meetings, but the state board meetings have become calamitous events.

When Pence and Ritz, who share control of the education board, agreed on the different set of rules, there was clear tension but nothing like the strife that erupted last week. Even before Ritz abruptly ended the meeting Wednesday and walked out, the warring parties had already been talking over each other, taking action on items without approval and fighting for control of each meeting. At times, the board has felt more like Britain’s House of Commons than a subdued Midwestern panel — although the lack of witticisms and laughter is glaring. “I think the entire point of these parliamentary procedures is to prevent entropy and chaos,” said Ashlyn Nelson, a professor of housing and education policy at Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Robert’s Rules are the creation of Henry Martyn Robert, an Army officer who published his book on parliamentary procedure in 1876 based off the rules used by the U.S. House of Representatives. Since publication, the guidebook has become the most frequently used set of rules for public meetings in America. In the absence of those rules, Nelson said, public meetings could drag on forever, committee members could talk over each other, actions could be proposed and dismissed arbitrarily. And those have become routine occurrences at the state education board meetings recently. Ritz often declines to recognize board members for comment, yet they speak over her anyway. Some of her tensest exchanges have come with Dan Elsener, who has repeatedly called on one of Pence’s education lawyers to speak at meetings, over Ritz’s objections. Earlier this month, Ritz’s board lawyer and Pence’s board lawyer subtly elbowed each other for room at the microphone in front of the board.


Help for a firefighter A benefit dinner and silent auction for James “Jimmy” Heintzelman, a member of the Sparta Township Fire Department, drew quite a crowd to the fire station in Cromwell Saturday night. People had a chance to peruse through more than 100 items in the auction. A hog roast dinner was served along with other activities to help Heintzelman and his family. The 34-year veteran of the department has been in and out of the hospital in recent months with a medical disorder.

Tri Kappa to celebrate 30 years ALBION — Albion’s Eta Theta Chapter of Kappa Kappa Kappa Inc. will offer a 30th anniversary celebration Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the lower level of the Noble County Public Library-Central, Albion. The chapter was installed in November 1983. Current or past members of Tri Kappa are asked to come for an evening of fun, fellowship and refreshments, a press release said. Those unable to attend can send greetings to president Whitney Baierle, 4728 N. C.R. 200W, Albion, IN 46701 or wbaierle@

Kappa Kappa Kappa Inc., commonly known as Tri Kappa, is a unique philanthropic organization existing only within the boundaries of the state of Indiana. Seven young ladies met at the Girls Classical School of Indianapolis (May Wright Sewall) and founded the sorority in 1901. Each young lady was to begin a chapter in her hometown. From these humble beginnings, Tri Kappa has thrived throughout the state with 146 active chapters and 114 associate chapters, totaling almost 9,000 actively participating members.

Each Tri Kappa chapter has special projects in its community for charity, culture, and education. Local chapters also support statewide projects. The James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for children has received contributions of more than $1 million and thousands of Riley dolls since it began in 1922. Tri Kappa also supports the Ronald McDonald House. Donations are made annually to the Mental Health Association in Indiana, the Arc of Indiana, Indiana Special Olympics, and many other charitable causes.

Salon moves downtown, changes name BY BOB BRALEY

ALBION — It’s got a new name, a new location and more staff, but a hair salon on the south side of the Noble County Courthouse square is a continuation of an existing Albion business. Jaci Diehm is the owner of The Strand, a hair salon located in the former offices of Dr. Roush & Roush at 106 W. Main St., Albion. It opened June 22. Diehm formerly owned Hair on Hazel, a salon she operated out of her home on Hazel Street. She wanted to get more space, offer more

services and get the business separate from her home, she said. When the building became available in October 2012, Diehm’s husband, Justin Diehm, saw the possibilities in it. It’s a good size for her to have space with other stylists, she said, adding, “It’s nice working alongside people again.” Three other stylists share the space with Jaci Diehm: Karly Kirkpatrick, Samantha Allred and Morgan Dazey. All four are Central Noble High School graduates. Diehm, Allred and Dazey each graduated fromn the Four County Vocational

School of Cosmetology. Kirkpatrick graduated from Huntington Beauty College. Diehm has 13 years of hairstyling experience. Kirkpatrick has seven years’ experience, and Allred four years. With the move, the business needed to change its name, Diehm said. “I wanted a one-word name, something kind of catchy,” she said. She hit on The Strand as that name. The salaon offers haristyling, haircuts, coloring, permanents, waxing, makeup, airbursh tanning and nails, Diehm said.

Trial to decide fate of portrait LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andy Warhol’s artwork has always grabbed attention and sparked discussion, but one of his portraits of Farrah Fawcett is about to receive scrutiny of a different kind in a Los Angeles courtroom. The case centers on a relatively simple question: does one of Warhol’s depictions of Fawcett belong to her longtime lover, Ryan O’Neal, or should it join its twin at her alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin? To decide the case, jurors will hear testimony and see evidence focused on Warhol and O’Neal’s friendship, his relationship with Fawcett and the actress’ final wishes. The panel will likely get insight into Warhol’s creation of the Fawcett image, which was based on a Polaroid photo the artist took of the “Charlie’s Angels” star in 1980. The image, one of the main attractions in a 2011 exhibit on portraiture at UT’s Blanton Museum of Art, features an unsmiling Fawcett looking out from the canvas. Warhol painted her lips red and her eyes green in an otherwise uncolored image. Jury selection in the trial is expected to begin this week, with O’Neal and possibly Fawcett’s “Charlie’s Angels” co-star

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Like the Pledge of Allegiance or “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the Gettysburg Address is a sacred American text, so fully absorbed into the culture that phrases such as “four score and seven years ago” and “of the people, by the people, for the people” are as familiar as any song lyric or line of poetry. But it’s an elusive text, as well. No definitive edition exists of the speech that countless children have memorized. Praise for Abraham Lincoln’s language has far exceeded any attempts to emulate it. And anniversaries have been marked only sporadically by Lincoln’s successors, including Barack Obama, a self-styled Lincoln

Jaclyn Smith taking the witness stand. The case resumes on Wednesday, when lawyers will argue what evidence will be admitted during the trial, which is expected to take two weeks. Fawcett decreed in her will that all her artwork go to the school, yet O’Neal insists that Warhol gave him a copy of the portrait as a gift and it belongs to him. Warhol’s art continues to garner attention and high prices. His painting of the immediate aftermath of a car crash sold for $105 million at auction last week, although the value of his Fawcett portrait is at dispute in the case. Estimates range from $600,000 to more than $10 million, according to filings in the case. University of Texas’ lawyers contend O’Neal

admirer who will not attend Tuesday’s 150th anniversary gathering. “My only guess is that the bar seems permanently set too high,” says Lincoln historian Harold Holzer. “There’s no other explanation for why acclaimed orators like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama would shy away from the challenge.” The Gettysburg Address is impossibly profound; intimidatingly brief, under 300 words; and unusual among great American speeches, in part because the occasion did not call for a great American speech. Lincoln was not giving an inaugural address, a commencement speech or remarks in the immediate aftermath of a shocking national tragedy, such as the bombing of Pearl Harbor or

Actors Ryan O’Neal, left, and Farrah Fawcett at the premiere of the film, “Chances Are,” in New York in this March 5, 1989 file photo. Jury selection could begn as early as Thursday in a Los Angeles courtroom in a dispute between O’Neal and the University of Texas at Austin over the ownership of an Andy Warhol portrait of Fawcett.

improperly removed the portrait from Fawcett’s condominium after her 2009 death. The Oscar-nominated actor had the artwork moved there to prevent it from being damaged by the salty air at his beachside home and had the right to retrieve it, his lawyers argue. O’Neal has countersued the university, seeking the return of a cloth napkin that Warhol drew hearts on and gave as a gift to Fawcett and the actor. “It is a precious memento of his life with Ms. Fawcett, the love of his life, with whom he was romantically involved for 30 years up until the time of her death,” O’Neal’s lawyers wrote in a trial brief. “Because O’Neal’s Warhol portrait is an heirloom, he never intends to, nor will sell it.”

the Sept. 11 attacks. “No one was looking for him to make history,” says the Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War historian James McPherson, who added that the event was planned by Pennsylvania officials, not by the Lincoln administration. Presidents traveled infrequently in Lincoln’s time and his presence was important, but not essential at Gettysburg. The timing of the Gettysburg National Cemetery’s dedication — four months after Union forces under Gen. George Meade turned back Gen. Robert E. Lee’s troops — was determined not by Lincoln’s schedule, but by the availability of Edward Everett, a celebrated orator whose two-hour speech preceded the president’s “Dedicatory Remarks.”

The home of Tom and Darlene Gisel at 208 S. Morton St. is included on this

year’s Kendallville Christmas Walk.

Historic villa on Christmas walk Home was once a hospital; housed traveling performers KENDALLVILLE — The historic Italianate villa home of Tom and Darlene Gisel at 208 S. Morton St. is included on this year’s Kendallville Christmas Walk. The walk will be Nov. 23 from 5:30-9:30 p.m. The Gisels have lived in the home for the past 38 years. The 13-room was built around 1870 by William and Mary Groh. In 1913, the home was sold to George and Mary Smith Busang. George Busang originated the Belford Troupe in about 1906. He legally changed his name to Belford in 1927. George Belford stayed in the home when his circus troupe known as the ‘‘Seven Marvelous Belforda’’ and later the ‘‘Six American Belfords’’ wasn’t traveling throughout the U.S. and

Europe. While he was traveling he rented the home out. Bleford owned the home until 1949. From 1915 to 1918, it was used by Dr. Wells as a private, eight-bed hospital. Other owners have included Roselda Pike from 1881 to 1913; John and Ferne Molitor; Richard and Dottie Wagner, William and Meryle Rateike, and Fritz and Virginia Dalrymple. Mrs. Gisel has been collecting Christmas decorations since 1972 and loves to decorate in traditional deep greens and reds. She said Old Word accents will be found throughout the home. One of the featured decorations will be a 30-piece Nativity she received as a gift from her husband in the early years of their marriage. It is one of

the first pieces she displays each year. Other homes featured on the walk from 5:30-9:30 p.m. will be those of Dennis and Pam Musselman at 237 S. Burnam St., Loren and Mary Allen at 224 S. Burnam St., Edward and Annette Weber at 439 S. Water St. and Phil and Sue Stephan at 112 S. Orchard St. Flora Hall at the Noble County Fairgrounds will house several vendors and offer refreshments. Tickets for the event are on sale at The News Sun, Orizon Real Estate and the Kendallville Youth Center. Proceeds from the walk will go to the Kendallville Christmas Bureau. They are $8 in advance. They will be available the day of the walk at each home and at Flora Hall for $10. A toy drop box will be at the Musselman home. Those donating toys will be included in a drawing for a gift bag from 31.

Bushong part of Butler service program INDIANAPOLIS — Natalie Bushong of Albion was one of 77 Butler University students to participate in Fall Alternative Break, an annual service trip where Butler students travel to various locations throughout the United States to assist communities in need in various ways. Each year, the location and project conducted are changed, but the basic service premise behind the trip remains the same. Students traveled to Mullens, W.Va., for this year’s Fall Alternative Break, where they worked with the Rural Appalachia Improvement League to build trails and clean up a local park in the community.

Challenging and enabling students to meet their personal and professional goals has guided Butler University since 1855. Today, Butler is a nationally recognized comprehensive university that blends the liberal arts with first-rate pre-professional programs. It seeks to prepare each graduate not simply to make a living but to make a life of purpose, in which personal flourishing is intertwined with the welfare of others.

POKAGON: Glasper began full-time at park in 1983 FROM PAGE A1

all we,” said Glasper. One of the biggest challenges Glasper faces comes when Pokagon’s refrigerated toboggan slide opens and treats guests to thrilling rides on a quartermile refrigerated track. For Glasper and the crew that will work for him this winter, operating the toboggan slide, keeping the ice just right on the track, cleaning off the track and making repairs when necessary is one of the toughest assignments for the entire year. “To me, and I’ve said this for years, the winter season is always the toughest because it’s always cold,” Glasper said. “The toboggan slide is a great draw, but it’s a maintenance nightmare because everything you do over there is by hand,” Glasper said. “You can’t get a piece of equipment to do anything over there, so everything is a job.” Glasper and crew will start making the ice layer on the track for its Thanksgiving opening this week. At some time during the season, the track — which has a boiler system in addition to a refrigeration system to help regulate the temperature — will be warmed up and melted to remove the ice and replace it with a fresh, smooth layer. Since the 1970s the track has been refrigerated to create the ice that can propel sleds at speeds of some 40 mph. It is all a controlled system. “I can make ice on

this thing at 70 degrees,” Glasper said, but when the sun is shining, it is tough to keep the track in shape on the coldest of days. “We finally have that system over there pretty well perfected. We put a ton of money in it this year,” Glasper said. That includes two new chillers, replacing much of the infrastructure of the tower and a general spruce-up of the structure, which has been in place since the 1970s. There was a big push this year with getting Trine State Recreation Area open Nov. 2, when a soft opening was done, with the grand opening coming next spring. Work has been going on at the nearly 200-acre property since about 2008, on top of taking care of the 1,200 acres at Pokagon. “Now there’s going to be those bugs we have to work out,” Glasper said, including staffing TSRA, making sure equipment is on hand to do maintenance and dealing with the logistics of hauling equipment back and forth from Pokagon to Trine. Glasper had done a few projects in the park in the 1970s with his father and began working in maintenance at Pokagon full-time in 1983. Being outdoors lured him to Pokagon. He finds himself doing all sorts of work, from working as a licensed sewer plant operator to crafting some special touches in native wood to grace parts of the restoration work being done in the Group Camp buildings. Talking about a project that was just completed, Glasper stops to look to the

sky to point out a bald eagle flying over. He’s outdoors, exactly where he wants to be.

Toboggan run hours Pokagon State Park’s toboggan slide typically operates Fridays from 5-10 p.m.; Saturdays 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sundays and holidays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. On opening day, Thanksgiving, the toboggan has extended hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. It will remain open weekends through Sunday, March 2.

FIRE: Size of building, rain made fight difficult FROM PAGE A1

The fire destroyed a 330,000-square-foot building used for storage by the property’s owner, Brighton Properties LLC. Notestine said firefighters were fortunate to keep the fire from spreading to other buildings on the 70-acre property. The facility was built more than 50 years ago by Campbell’s Soup Co. to grow mushrooms for its soups. Other large buildings on the property are now used to store seed corn, sawdust and used coffee grounds. The grounds surrounding the buildings are used by the Brighton Corn Cob Co. to store millions of corn cobs in mounds that are nearly as long as a football field

almost 50-foot tall. Notestine said he was particularly worried that the fire would reach one of the corn cob mounds. “If that happened, we would be out here for weeks, not a day,” he explained. The size of the building, its age as well as its large, flat, tar roof, made the fire difficult to fight, Notestine said. He called the fire the largest ever tackled by the Mongo Fire Department. A lack of hydrants at the scene forced firefighters to stage pumper trucks eight miles away in Orland and ferry water to the scene. Another pump station was set up a few miles up the road, drawing water out of a pond at a local gravel pit. A long, metal-sheeted

hallway connected the burning building to similar buildings at the front of the property. Notestine said that hallway was opened by firefighters, effectively stopping the fire from being able to spread to the other buildings. Notestine said overnight rains did little to slow the fire, instead only making the firefighters’ jobs much more difficult. The rain also softened the ground near the fire scene, making it harder to station fire trucks closer to the scene. High winds fanned the flames, feeding the fire. Notestine said firefighters called in three aerial fire trucks trying to reach to the center of the massive building.

their roof came off the home, Manns said. The home lost its roof during the storm. No injuries were reported. Newton said Manns home was the only significant structural damage in of which he was aware in Noble County. Strong winds also snapped eight power poles in the block, Newton said. Uprooted trees caused much of the damage in some areas.

A tree on Snathers Street in Hudson fell and went through a home, Thrasher said. Another tree was uprooted and went through the front end of an RV. A limb went through the windshield of a vehicle on Main Street, he said. But the winds themselves also did damage, Thrasher said. In Helmer, the wind blew the east wall out of a garage.

Maybe your knee pain keeps you from walking short distances or playing golf like you used to. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your knee hurts and the pain just won’t go away!

CHICAGO (AP) — Josh McCown spent a few quiet moments trying to figure out what would happen. He probably didn’t envision this. The Bears waited out a long rain delay and put in extra time to come away with a much-needed win. Robbie Gould kicked a 38-yard field goal to lift the Bears to a 23-20 victory over Baltimore Sunday in a game delayed about two hours by a torrential downpour. Justin Tucker tied it for the Ravens with a 21-yard field goal at the end of regulation. The big delay came after Tucker kicked a 52-yarder with 4:51 remaining in the first quarter. Fans were ordered to take cover as players headed to the locker rooms while heavy rains and winds whipped through Soldier Field. They emerged about two hours later with the sky clearing and the sun coming out, but the rain and wind returned in the third quarter, turning the stands into a sea of ponchos. During the delay, Bears players stretched and went over the game plan.

“Closed my eyes and just trying to think about the game, visualize the game a little bit,” McCown said. “And kind of assess what happened the first two series. What did we do wrong? Why weren’t we moving the ball? What are they going to do to us?” Ravens coach John Harbaugh wouldn’t say what his team did during the down time, although his team is no stranger to delays. The Ravens experienced a power outage in the Super Bowl, after all, and the start of their seasonopener at Denver was pushed back by lightning. Both were just 34 minutes, though. “I think we’ve led the league in delays over the last few years,” Harbaugh said. Gould won it with a 38-yarder on third-and-8 at the 20 with 8:41 left in OT after McCown connected with a leaping Martellus Bennett on a 43-yard pass to put the ball on the 22, and the Bears (6-4) came away with the win after dropping four of six. They were leading 20-17 with 10:33 remaining in regulation after Matt Forte scored on a 14-yard

2, getting a one-handed catch from Dallas Clark on a fourth down at 44. After Joe Flacco overthrew Torrey Smith in the back of the end zone on third down, Tucker tied it at 20-all with 3 seconds left.

BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell knew what the Hoosiers needed Sunday evening. They had to crank up the pace, turn up the pressure and start putting some distance between themselves and Stony Brook. The point guard took care of all three in the second half. He finished with 24 points, five rebounds and six assists and teammate Noah Vonleh became the first Indiana player to post four straight double-doubles since 2007-08 to lead the Hoosiers to a AP 90-74 victory. “He is continually finding what Jimmie Johnson, center, his wife, Chandra, and his sixth NASCAR Sprint Cub Series championthe game is giving teammates his daughter, Genevieve, celebrate after he won ship in Homestead, Fla., Sunday. and what the game is giving him, and he’s playing a high level of defense,” coach Tom Crean said. “He’s figuring out how to win every possession.” Indiana needed Ferrell, the only returning starter from last season’s HOMESTEAD, Fla.

Another talented team at Westview BY JAMES FISHER

EMMA — Twenty-win seasons are hard to come by. Yet Rob Yoder’s Westview boys basketball squad produced its third consecutive 20-win season a year ago. Don’t be surprised if the Warriors make it four in a row. But, of course, it will be 11th-year coach Yoder’s way: One game at a time. “Win the next game on the schedule, that’s our goal,” Yoder said. That will come on Nov. 26 when Westview opens the season at Bethany Christian. Yoder says that physically, his team is “probably as good as we have been.” “We’re starting at a good spot,” the veteran coach added. Westview has nine returning letterwinners, four of those aree seniors. Point guard Jordyn Bontrager returns to guide the team and classmates Jamar Weaver and Damon Hershberger also are back in the lineup. Bontrager averaged around 11 points

per game last season, but was more valuable in his duties as the floor leader. “He’s just a really good point guard, top notch,” Yoder said. “We’ll try to enjoy his senior year.” Weaver averaged five points per game a year ago and will also fit into the starting lineup.

“He’s one of our best shooters, plays really hard nose and is an easy kid to coach,” Yoder said. The other senior is Judah Zickafoose. He returns to the lineup after setting out of basketball for a season to concentrate on baseball. Zickafoose has made his college choice, and is

planning on playing baseball at Grand Canyon University. With that out of the way, he’ll rejoin the team in a starting role. “He’s much improved,” Yoder said. Westview also has a talented junior class that includes Daron Miller, Chandler Aspy and Brody

Jantzi. Aspy begins his third season of varsity play and trailed only graduate Kyle Miller in scoring for the team last season. Aspy had 311 points. He’ll sit out the first few weeks with an illness. “I just think he can have a really good season,”

Yoder said. “He’s improved a lot, had a good summer, and hopefully can catch up quickly.” Sophomores on the roster include Chase Anderson, Andrew Yoder, Kolton Miller and Cody Litwiller. Don’t be surprised to see them all take the floor during the course of a game. “We think we’re balanced and deep and as the season gets going, we hope to play 10,” Yoder explained. “A lot of them have some experience.” Westview has produced some huge winning streaks in recent seasons. The Warriors have won 14 in a row the last two seasons, and pieced together an 18-game streak in 2010-11. Following the opener against Bethany Christian, the Warriors play at Northridge on Nov. 30. The first home contest is on Dec. 6 in the squad’s Northeast Corner Conference opener with Churubusco. As for Westview’s league hopes. “Everyone is 0-0 and has high expectations,” Yoder said. “We hope to be in the mix.” The Warriors always are.

Andrews changing Marines’ culture BY KEN FILLMORE

HAMILTON — Fred Andrews is the latest coach attempting to turn around the fortunes of Hamilton boys basketball. And he is creating a structured approach and is working to build up optimism to get the Marines back in the right direction. “The kids are working very hard. There is a lot of talent in the program,” Andrews said. “The key is believing they can win. “We have a lot of things to work on. The attitude has been great. I’m real excited.” Andrews was the varsity assistant boys coach at Indianapolis North Central the past four seasons. He has entered the small town from the big city with enthusiasm that has not been wavered by the Marines’ recent struggles and the challenges he will face. “I’m 43 years old and I did not want to be an assistant anymore,” Andrews said. “I want to run my own program. It has been amazingly tough to find a head coaching job.” Moving close to family was also important to Andrews. Basketball fans around here are familiar with his brother Gary, who has been highly successful as the women’s basketball coach at the University of Saint Francis in Fort Wayne since 2001 and won three prep state titles as the girls basketball coach at Bishop Luers. Jenny Andrews, Fred and Gary’s sister, is an assistant coach for the Cougars. The Marines were 5-16 last season, including 1-9

in the Northeast Corner Conference. The five victories were the most they have had in the past six seasons. Fred Andrews is the seventh different coach to lead HHS after John Hohnstreiter left for Heritage in 2001 following the Marines’ Class 1A regional championship season. Hamilton is returning to more of a half-court style of play after being more of a full-court team with not much depth the past two seasons under previous coach Bernie White. The Marines have been most competitive over the past decade with a methodical

half-court approach. “The more established programs around here like Westview, Blackhawk Christian and Lakewood Park like to run. We can’t allow that,” Andrews said. “We have to dictate tempo and play how we want to play. We have to know the difference between a good shot and a bad shot. We want to pressure the point and get into their legs.” Andrews has an experienced group to work with and he said the boys are buying into the changing culture by developing winning habits on a daily basis. The most significant graduation loss from

last year was guard Brett Converset. Hamilton has seven seniors, led by 6-foot-3 center Casey Rote and guard Aaron Kelley. Rote averaged 14.6 points and 8.4 rebounds per game last year while Kelley averaged 9.2 points, 3.1 steals, 2.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists per contest. “If they are not all-conference, we have not done our jobs,” Andrews said. “Casey is a 5 (center), but he can play inside and out and we want to exploit his strengths and favorable matchups. “At this point in time, we want Aaron to understand

the difference between a good shot and a bad shot. He’s getting better. It’s a process. We want him to be a great decision maker.” Hamilton has two long skilled guys emerging in 6-3 senior Addison Stephens (6.1 ppg last year) and 6-4 sophomore shooting guard Colton Rose (2.3 ppg, 2 rpg, 19 blocks, 37 percent from 3 last season). Their length will help the Marines inside. Andrews said he has an 11-player rotation he is comfortable with. Returning senior Cody Pattee (2.1 ppg), classmates Gage Law and Trayson Lucas, and freshman Jack Hill will give

HHS interior depth. Hill is a cousin of Tyler Hill, who was the energetic forward on Hamilton’s 2001 regional championship team. Law and sophomore guard Nathan Brown will give the team some physicality. Brown bench presses 250 pounds. Andrews will make in-season weight training a part of Hamilton’s regular routine. Senior Daine Johnson and sophomore Reed Steffen will be part of the Marines’ backcourt mix. “Our goal will always be to win conference and sectional championships. After sectional, anything can happen,” Andrews said. “Deep down, the kids want success. The public wants it. We just have to understand what it takes to get there.” Andrews has two former area players as his assistant coaches. Garrett Heator was the point guard of Fremont’s 2005 Class 2A sectional championship team. Orie Foster was a forward for Garrett a few years back.

Iowa State springs upset on No. 7 Michigan AMES, Iowa (AP) — While everyone focused on the debut of Michigan’s Mitch McGary, it was easy to forget that Iowa State got Melvin Ejim back too. In a matchup of returning stars, Ejim outshone McGary and led the Cyclones to one of their biggest wins under coach Fred Hoiberg. Ejim returned after missing two games with a hyperextended knee to score a game-high 22 points and Iowa State beat No. 7 Michigan 77-70 Sunday. Naz Long added 16 for the Cyclones (3-0), who closed the game on a 23-10 run and held McGary to just one point in the second half. “Melvin, I can’t say enough about him. I told him in my office (Saturday), ‘If you do get the green light, I’m going to gradually ease you back into this thing — and I think I took him out for two minutes in the second half. Pretty big-time performance from Mel,” Hoiberg

said. McGary, a preseason first-team All-American who missed two games with a lower back injury, finished with nine points, six rebounds and four steals in 22 minutes. “It was good to be back. Trying to find the right chemistry on the court. Typical first game, trying to find the right group of guys, try to feel it out and have a good feel on the floor,” McGary said. Nik Stauskas led Michigan (2-1) with 20 points and Derrick Walton Jr. had 13. Glenn Robinson III was held to 12 points on 4 of 14 shooting. Michigan was just 8 of 29 from 3-point range and 4 of 9 on free throws. “We did not execute the way we had to. They changed a little bit of pressure on their defense and blew up a couple of plays and we panicked a little bit. Out of that still…we had really good

shots. They just didn’t go down,” Michigan coach John Beilein said. Michigan kept threatening to pull away from the Cyclones in the second half — especially with Iowa State forward Georges Niang on the bench with four fouls. Ejim kept the Wolverines from doing it. Stauskas took a loose ball and flushed it home with an emphatic one-handed dunk, only to watch Ejim answer with a 3. Spike Albrecht then hit a layup, and Ejim responded with a jumper. Iowa State’s DeAndre Kane followed with a 3, and Long’s 3 capped a 13-2 run that gave the Cyclones a 67-62 lead with 5:00 left. Kane had 13 points and six assists and Dustin Hogue added 12 points and 10 rebounds. “It was fun to be back,” Ejim said. “I’ve been working hard throughout the offseason, getting tons of shots up and working on my

game. So I expected to be a little better. But this was a great game. I was feeling it.” When McGary and Ejim entered play together with 16:17 left in the first half, no one was quite sure how healthy either one of them was. But by the end of the half, it was clear that McGary and Ejim were the two best players on the floor. McGary jumped a passing lane and maneuvered through Iowa State’s defense for a transition layup, one of four field goals he had in the first half alone. Ejim, a preseason first-team All-Big 12 pick, gave the Cyclones a huge boost off the bench with 12 points and five boards his first 10 minutes of action. McGary couldn’t keep it up in the second half though — while Ejim helped key Iowa State’s late surge. “He just crashed the glass hard. He’s a high motor type of guy,” McGary said of Ejim. “He’s a great

player, and he did well for them.” Ejim’s return was among the many reasons why Sunday’s matinee was one of the biggest non-conference games Iowa State has ever hosted. Hilton Coliseum sold out in less than 10 minutes when tickets went on sale last month. A school-record 22 NBA scouts requested credentials as well, no doubt hoping to get a glimpse of McGary and Robinson. The Cyclones also brought back former coach Johnny Orr, who left Michigan for the Cyclones in 1981. Though Michigan looked to be on the verge of taking over more than once, Iowa State rallied to score a win that’ll likely come in handy come March. “This is huge for our program, for our fans to see our team winning like this. This is huge for them, to camp out all night and to see this, it’s just awesome,” Niang said. “I’m excited for the things that are in the future for us.”

SPORTS BRIEFS • Blackhawks pound Sharks, 5-1 CHICAGO (AP) — Patrick Sharp scored two goals, including one on a third-period penalty shot, and Kris Versteeg had a goal and an assist to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 5-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night. Jonathan Toews and rookie Brandon Pirri also scored for the Blackhawks, who rebounded with a tidy defensive effort following a 7-2 loss in Nashville on Saturday, their most lopsided this season. Joe Pavelski connected for San Jose in a matchup of two of the Western Conference’s top teams. Versteeg scored his first goal with the Blackhawks since being reacquired in trade from Florida on Thursday. He was a member of Chicago’s 2010 Stanley Cup-winning team.

Late field goal leads Saints past 49ers NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Marques Colston capped a record-setting day with a 20-yard reception to get the Saints into field goal range, and Garrett Hartley kicked a 31-yarder as time expired, lifting New Orleans over San Francisco. Hartley, who had missed four field goals in the Saints’ previous three games, made all three of his field goal attempts in the fourth quarter — he earlier hit from 21 and 42 yards. The Saints (8-2) overcame three turnovers, a failed fourth down conversion and a 20-14 deficit.

Bengals score 31 secondquarter points in Browns rout CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes and Cincinnati returned a blocked punt and a fumble for touchdowns during a 31-point second quarter that set a Bengals record and swept the AFC North leaders over Cleveland. The Bengals (7-4) head into their bye week with their division lead intact. They’d lost their last two games in overtime, tying the NFL record and allowing the Browns (4-6) to draw close. The biggest quarter in club history left this one in hand by halftime. It ended as the most lopsided game in the intrastate series since Cincinnati’s 30-0 win in Cleveland in 2006. Dalton had a horrid start that helped Cleveland get a promising early lead. He threw two passes that were picked off by Joe Haden, who ran one of them back 29 yards for a touchdown and a 13-0 lead in the first quarter.

Two late touchdowns carry Steelers past Lions PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger passed for 367 yards and four touchdowns, including two in the final 5 minutes as Pittsburgh rallied to beat Detroit. Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 147 yards and two scores and Pittsburgh’s defense rebounded from a horrific second quarter to shut out Detroit in the second half. The Steelers (4-6) have won two straight and kept the Lions (6-4) winless in Pittsburgh for 58 years and counting. Matthew Stafford threw for 362 yards with two touchdowns and an interception to become the Lions’ all-time leading passer. Calvin Johnson hauled in six passes for 179 yards and both scores, but Detroit’s two stars disappeared over the final 30 minutes.

Belmont upsets North Carolina CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — J.J. Mann hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 13.1 seconds left to help Belmont upset No. 12 North Carolina 83-80 on Sunday in the Hall of Fame Tipoff. Mann finished with a career-best 28 points. His last basket gave the Bruins (3-1) an 81-80 lead. The Tar Heels (2-1) had rallied from 11 down in the second half to lead by eight with about 4 minutes left. After Mann’s basket, UNC’s J.P. Tokoto missed a shot for the lead from near the top of the key. Drew Windler grabbed the loose rebound and threw it ahead to Caleb Chowbay, who scored on a breakaway layup with 0.2 seconds left to seal a stunning win.

Lincoln’s Gettysburg address unleashed a new USA

Abraham Lincoln knew there were few chances left to make his case to the American people. They were tired of the war. The bloodshed and devastation was overwhelming. Maintaining the union was a justifiable cause to the majority of Northerners for the first several years of fighting. Then the bloodiest day of the Civil War shocked the nation in the of 1862 Lincoln unleashed a fall at Antietam new United States of Creek by America whose rebirth Sharpsburg, Md. of freedom became War no the greatest power for waslonger a myth peace and progress of glory. new in the world the past The technology of photog150 years. raphy depicted the awful carnage. Anti-war sentiment grew in the North as Lincoln faced a re-election campaign. Lincoln carefully recalibrated the meaning of the war with the Emancipation Proclamation. Using his questionable war powers, Lincoln freed the slaves in the southern states fighting to secede from the Union. Lincoln held firm that secession violated the Constitution. Then Gettysburg, Pa., in July 1863. The bloodiest three days in American history. Brothers, cousins and friends killed each other in an orgy of historic devastation. More killed than in all the wars of the 20th century. It was either the beginning of the end of the rebellion, or the union. Lincoln feared a balkanized America based on slavery and controlled by competing European and Asian interests, beset by continual world words. Gettysburg was Abraham Lincoln’s greatest challenge as the commander in chief and as president. It was one of America’s defining moments. On Nov. 19, 1863, comments by President Lincoln were a footnote to the day long dedication of the new cemetery at Gettysburg. The esteemed orator, statesman and educator Edward Everett was scheduled to make the primary performance. Oratory in the mid-1800s was like major sporting events or music concerts today. The audience traveled for hours and days to the venue and expected at least three hours of entertainment from the speaker. Everett was the rock star of his times. Lincoln stole the show in a talk under 10 minutes. In that time he redefined America. Lincoln masterfully changed the way we interpret the Constitution. He made the Declaration of Independence the foundation of constitutional law and political consensus. Lincoln unleashed a new United States of America whose rebirth of freedom became the greatest power for peace and progress in the world the past 150 years. Big stuff from a simple and short speech. Not bad for a kid who grew up in Indiana. One of the rare original copies of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address is on display at Trine University’s Taylor Hall. It is one of many historical documents and publications that are available from the Remnant Trust not just to look at, but touch and feel. At 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Taylor Hall’s Wells Theater on the Trine University campus, I will discuss the meaning of the Gettysburg Address on its 150th anniversary, or to be precise in the language of Lincoln in the computer age, 7.5 score years ago. The lecture is free and open to the public. The first publication containing the Gettysburg Address and other rare books from the Remnant Trust are available for review after the lecture.

Eliminate confiscatory taxes and unnecessary regulation

To the editor: Gregg Hodgson’s premise that taxing large multinational corporations will somehow assist small business is baloney (Supporting Small Business, Nov. 12). The reform bill he endorses will not make it a penny less expensive to run a small business. It will, though, erode the value of private retirement and pension accounts that invest in publicly traded companies. The underlying problem is not that of corporate giants evading taxes. The problem is that the United States government taxes corporate profit at a punitive rate of 35 percent, one of the highest in the world. This rate makes it attractive and profitable for U.S.-based companies to find ways to avoid paying that tax. As Mr. Hodgson is undoubtedly aware,

him get his facts straight or to rewrite his letter in order to elevate it out of the gutter. Could it be that you made the conscious decision to publish his letter in its unadulterated form because you knew the controversy it would generate? I hope not, because citizens deserve better than to be served by a newspaper that elevates entertainment above truth. Recently, The Los Angeles Times made the editorial decision not to publish letters to the editor that made the attempt of couching opinions denying man-made global warming as fact. They did this because the evidence for global warming is as incontrovertible as it is overwhelming. So, too, are certain date-points concerning our president that were touched on by the author of the letter in question: • He was born in Hawaii, and is therefore a legitimately elected president of the U.S. • Those who oppose the PPACA because they do not want any kind of health care reforms are in the minority, not the majority. • Voter fraud is neither common Brian Thomas Angola nor widespread, and most certainly not committed by illegal aliens. • President Obama is a baptized and Letter rules should professing Christian. not permit falsehoods The above things are true.

Ex-boyfriend could ruin Thanksgiving DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law tends to embrace every pitiful creature she comes into contact with. This Thanksgiving she has invited my ex-boyfriend and his wife to her home to share in the festivities. My ex was abusive to me most of the time, and we did not end on good terms. The woman he cheated on me with is now his wife. My ex was sneaky and manipulative, and I believe his only reason for wanting to be there is to check up on me and my husband. I have explained this to my husband and his mother, and told them I don’t feel comfortable with the situation. They both told me I am “overreacting” and that he was a part of my past and I have since moved on. I feel the family I love has betrayed me. The idea



of my ex being involved in what should be a comfortable family day has me afraid and uneasy. AM I overreacting? Or is my husband’s mother being unreasonable? — DREADING THANKSGIVING DEAR DREADING THANKSGIVING: I do not think you are overreacting. It was insensitive of your motherin-law to invite your DEAR abusive and his ABBY ex wife to the gathering without first Jeanne Phillips checking with you. While you may have moved on, I can see why

this would not be something you would look forward to. Frankly, it’s surprising that your mother-in-law would even know your ex — let alone invite him to her home.

Tests for testosterone not always reliable Testosterone levels are highest in the morning. Blood for testosterone lab tests should be drawn between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. Based on this blood test, your doctor must determine if your total testosterone level is low. Unfortunately, different laboratories ASK measure total DOCTOR K. testosterone using different methods. That there Dr. Anthony means is no standard nition of Komaroff defi “low”: Every laboratory has its own definition. Even more confusing, the total testosterone value isn’t what’s really important. Here’s why: Most of the testosterone in your

blood is attached to a protein. The protein holds it tight and releases only some of it. Testosterone can’t have any effect on your body unless it is floating freely in the blood. A man can have normal or even high levels of total testosterone, but low levels of free testosterone. It’s the free hormone that has the effects that a man with low T wants: sex drive, erection, good muscle tone, improved concentration and memory, and more energy. So it would seem logical, then, just to test free testosterone. Unfortunately, lab tests for free testosterone are even less reliable than tests for total testosterone. Why not simply treat low testosterone if your symptoms and tests suggest low T? Because treatment —testosterone replacement — can have side effects of its own. These include increased risk of blood clotting. There’s also

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve been having symptoms that may be caused by low testosterone. I figured it would be easy to test my testosterone levels, but my doctor says it’s complicated. Why? DEAR READER: Testosterone is one of the main male hormones. Blood levels of this hormone start to sag in early adulthood, and then creep lower. In some men, the levels become low enough to cause symptoms. The classic symptoms of low testosterone (“low T”) are low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, poor muscle tone, poor concentration and memory, and low energy. However, these same symptoms can result from other illnesses, including depression and heart disease. What makes testing for low T tricky is that levels of the hormone change during the day, and also that the hormone exists in two different forms in the blood.


concern that testosterone supplementation could trigger prostate cancer, or speed up tumor growth in men who already have prostate cancer. On the other hand, there also is evidence that men who normally have low testosterone levels may have a greater risk of developing prostate cancer. There also is a concern that testosterone therapy might increase the risk of heart disease. In one relatively small study of old and frail men with multiple chronic diseases, there was a suggestion of an increased heart risk. So, your doctor said it was complicated — and you were probably hoping I could make it uncomplicated. Unfortunately, I’m going to disappoint you on this question. The research is incomplete. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

New Jersey set Website encourages people to share their stories of JFK leagacy to deal with new BOSTON (AP) — There’s no shortage of places for people to share memories of where they were 50 years ago when they found out John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. But a new website debuting Monday aims to take the focus from past to future by asking people of all ages — even those who weren’t alive when Kennedy died — to share their thoughts about how he has inspired them. The website is part of the JFK Library and Museum’s commemoration of the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death, which is Friday. The museum also plans a new exhibit of never-before-displayed items from his three-day state funeral, including the flag that draped his casket and notes written by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. Visitors to the “An Idea Lives On” site can explore an interactive video that includes NASA Commander Chris Cassidy, former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, comedian Conan O’Brien, Freedom Rider Charles Person and others talking about Kennedy’s lasting impact. The Kennedy Library Foundation, a nonprofit that raises money to support the library, is spearheading the project. The foundation hopes visitors will upload their own photos, videos, written messages and tweets to answer the question “How do the ideals of John F. Kennedy live on in your life today?” “It’s ambitious,” said Tom McNaught, the foundation’s executive director. “He was an ambitious president. In a way that’s how we see this. You can’t stop trying to instill in young people the ideas he instilled in my


A small new exhibit at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum marking the 50th anniversary of the assignation of the 35th President of the United States includes never-before-displayed artifacts from his three-day state funeral, such as the American flag which draped the president’s casket presented with a photograph of first lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy during her husband’s funeral.

generation.” All submissions will become part of the archives at the JFK Library in Boston. The best stories will be featured on the site. “The stories are meant to be really personal,” said Brian Williams, vice president and creative director of The Martin Agency, which produced the site. The site’s name comes from a quote in a speech Kennedy gave in February 1963: “A man may die, nations may rise and fall,

but an idea lives on.” It’s also inscribed on the wall visitors to the library see when they exit the small area of the museum that focuses on his assassination and walk into a brighter area where they can learn about his lasting impact on civil rights, public service, civic discourse, the arts, space exploration and more. “President Kennedy stood for vitality and optimism and hope, so we’ve made a conscious decision to try to have the experience be uplifting,”

said Tom Putnam, the library’s executive director. Because of that focus, the library does not typically do anything special to mark the anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination. But this year is different. In addition to the website, a new exhibit starts Friday that will include the flag from his casket and the saddle, boots and sword worn by the riderless horse that walked in the funeral procession. Visitors will also see notes written by Jackie Kennedy as she made plans for her husband’s funeral and a 15-minute video with footage from the events. Curator Stacey Bredhoff hopes it will help visitors who were not alive or too young to remember comprehend the enormity of the shock and the mourning that followed. Also Friday, the library will host a musical tribute featuring Paul Winter, who performed at the White House with his jazz sextet during Kennedy’s presidency, along with a U.S. Navy choir and singer James Taylor. Between songs, notable guests including Gov. Deval Patrick will read quotes from Kennedy’s speeches. The event is not open to the public, but it will be streamed live on the library’s website. It will include a moment of silence at the time Kennedy was killed. Members of the Kennedy family will not attend and instead will observe the anniversary privately at home. “We want our tone to be respectful and we want it to have a certain reverence, but we also want it to be hopeful and end on this notion of what JFK stood for,” Putnam said.

rules on gambling ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey is deadly serious about making sure anyone who gambles online once Internet betting begins this week is physically within the state. And the technology designed to ensure it may freeze some bettors out of the action unless they move farther away from the state’s borders. A key aspect of the law legalizing Internet gambling is that all the activity takes place within New Jersey’s borders. To comply with that, technology companies working with the Atlantic City casinos have erected so-called digital fencing near — but not exactly conforming to — the state’s borders. The result in some places will be small no-play zones, from which potential gamblers will have to move temporarily if they want to bet online. These include places like the edge of the state’s borders along the Hudson and Delaware rivers, where the fence has been moved an unspecified distance inland to guard against anyone located in New York or Pennsylvania slipping through the safeguards and gambling online in New Jersey. “Unfortunately for some people, there may not be sufficient verification that they are in New Jersey — even if they are — and they’ll be denied,” said David Rebuck, director of the state Division of Gaming Enforcement. “It’s an unavoidable consequence.” It is one thing the casinos and their regula-

tors will be paying close attention to when a five-day, invitation-only trial of online gambling begins at 6 p.m. Thursday. If all goes well, the entire state will be allowed to gamble online as of Nov. 26. The border adjustments are seen as a way to protect the casinos from potential fines if they are found to let anyone gamble illegally. No dollar amounts have been set as potential penalties. “No one can afford to risk that,” said Tobin Prior, CEO of Ultimate Gaming, which is the Trump Taj Mahal Casino resort’s online partner. “We would err on the side of caution.” The company also offers online gambling in Nevada, and set up its electronic fence about a mile and a half from the state’s borders, which was not a problem because they are sparsely populated. In New Jersey, however, some of the state’s most densely populated areas lie along the Hudson waterfront, including Jersey City, Hoboken and Weehawken, as well as Camden and Trenton along the Delaware. Officials of several companies offering so-called geolocation technology would not specify exactly how far their boundaries are from the state’s actual border, but Prior said the no-play zone would be smaller than it is in Nevada. Rebuck said it will vary from provider to provider; someone may be frozen out of one casino’s online site but able to access another’s.

Boeing takes $100 billion in orders from Gulf region DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — U.S.-based Boeing Co. dominated on the first day of the Dubai Airshow, netting $100 billion in orders at an event that showcased the spending power and aggressive expansion efforts of the Middle East’s Gulf Arab carriers.

The 342 orders represented more than twice the value of those seen by European rival Airbus, who said it took 142 orders worth some $40 billion. The massive commitments came from just four carriers in the tiny nations of Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, which are in

a race to create more jobs for their own citizens and diversify their oil-dependent economies. “In recent years, much of the action in global aviation has shifted to the Middle East because countries like the U.A.E. and Qatar have tapped into our geographical advantage to build a new air

transport connection for the world,” Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Emirates and the smaller flydubai, told reporters. Of the major Gulf Arab carriers, Dubai-based Emirates airline flexed its buying power the hardest, with orders for 150 of the planned Boeing 777x at a

combined price tag of $55.6 billion. The aircraft is a larger and more fuel-efficient model of the company’s popular 777 wide-body. Boeing CEO James McNerney Jr. called it part of the “largest product launch in commercial jetliner history.” The airline also announced orders for 50 Airbus A380s

— the main competition for the 777X. Airbus says the planned purchase is listed at $23 billion. The Dubai Airshow is seen as an increasingly important barometer on the state of the aviation industry and the rising roles of the big-spending Gulf carriers Etihad and Qatar Airways.
