GOOD MORNING Two charged with making meth in Topeka home BY BOB BRALEY email@example.com
TOPEKA — Two area men were charged with several felony offenses after they allegedly made methamphetamine in a Topeka mobile home park, the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department said. Christopher Douglas Hollowell, 33, of Topeka and Justin M. Harrington, 28, of Albion each is charged with Hollowell manufacturing meth within 1,000 feet of a park and family housing complex, a Class A felony; possession of Harrington meth within 1,000 feet of a park and family housing complex, a Class C felony; and possession of precursors with intent to manufacture meth, a Class D felony. Hollowell also was charged with maintaining a common nuisance, a Class D felony. Harrington faces an additional charge of visiting a common nuisance, a Class A misdemeanor. Both were held at the LaGrange County Jail without bond Sunday. The arrests were the result of a joint investigation between the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department, Topeka Police Department and LaGrange County Prosecutor’s office over several weeks, a press release said. LaGrange Circuit Court issued a search warrant Friday for Holowell’s residence in the 300 block of North Street, Topeka. Police executed the warrant at about 9:15 p.m. due to the large number of children in the area trick-or-treating. During the search, officers allegedly obtained a “one-pot” meth lab, meth, numerous meth precursors, numerous hypodermic needles and a large amount of meth paraphernalia.

Benefits of vote centers promoted BY BOB BRALEY firstname.lastname@example.org
LAOTTO — Approximately 20 people gathered Sunday afternoon at the LaOtto Fire Station for a discussion about a proposal to start using vote centers in Noble County . Event organizer Carmen Darland, the Third District chairwoman and Noble County vice chairwoman of the Democratic Party, said the goal of the session was to hear more voices from voters. In the current system, 19 polling places serve the county’s 29 precincts, Darland said. The proposal made by Noble County Clerk Shelley Mawhorter is to
shift to eight vote centers for the 2014 election. Darland was concerned that Swan and Green townships wouldn’t have vote centers, since they have experienced long lines and parking problems in the past. John Bender, who has served as a precinct worker in Swan Township, said the largest volume of people seems to come in late in the voting day, starting between 2-3 p.m. “It’s a mad rush at the end to get in and get your vote in,” he said. Bender noted that another aspect of the vote center plan is to open centers for early voting as well as on Election Day. “That’s the best thing you can do,” he
said. Homer Smith said he’s spoken to handicapped voters who’ve said they won’t change voting locations. “People just won’t vote,” he said. Noble County Councilman Jerry Jansen said the move to vote centers will save money long-term, and that the biggest problem in recent years has been getting enough precinct people to work the polls. Vote centers need fewer workers, he said. Mawhorter estimated the savings in poll workers at $17,000 per year. she said there would be about $25,000 in start-up costs. Each center will have a tablet connected to Wi-Fi that will sign
voters in, guaranteeing a person can vote only once, Jansen said. With early voting, people could vote before or after work, or even on a Saturday. Another advantage to vote centers is that any voter registered in Noble County could vote at any vote center in the county, Mawhorter said. “I think this has been pretty well thought out,” Jansen said. “Noble County has 82 voting machines,” Mawhorter said. About 15-20 of those machines would be used for early voting. By law, those machines couldn’t be used in the general election for that cycle. All others would, she SEE CENTERS, PAGE A6

Workhorse for the community Like his Percherons, LaOtto’s Bill Knott stays busy BY MATT GETTS email@example.com
LAOTTO — For a man who hasn’t strayed far from his roots, Bill Knott sure seems to get around. There’s Knott, 71, of rural DeKalb County, in a parade. There he is at the Apple Festival of Kendallville. There he is at an assisted care facility. What those events have in common are draft horses, large Percherons that cause people to stop and stare. “It’s my brother Jim’s fault,” Knott said. “He got me all stirred up in the horse business.” That was in 1983. He’s been hitched up to draft horses, Percherons in particular, ever since.
“They’re just very fascinating,” he said. “It’s amazing how docile they can be, if you don’t surprise them. That’s how they are.” His Percherons aren’t just show or parade animals. Knott uses them as work animals, pulling farm machinery that weighs more than a ton. It would be faster to do the same work with a tractor, he admitted. “That’s not the point here,” he said. The horses, if not worked, can

CHICAGO (AP) — Raise the age at which you can begin collecting full Social Security benefits? Older Americans say no. They also veto reductions in the cost-of-living increase. But a poll finds support among those 50 and older for raising the cap on earnings that are taxed to fund the Social Security program so higher-income workers pay more. The survey by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds passionate opposition to any change in the way Social Security benefits are calculated that could result in smaller annual raises. Some 62 percent of respondents expressed opposition to such a proposal, compared with 21 percent who supported it. The chained CPI, or consumer price index, has been proposed as a new way of calculating the cost-of-living adjustment, but it would reduce raises. “I really think it’s a sacred cow,” said Margie Nugent, a 55-year-old farmer from North SEE SOCIAL SECURITY, PAGE A6
Horsemen break ground for Draft Animal Museum BY SUE CARPENTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Serving Noble & LaGrange Counties
AUBURN — Members of the DeKalb Horsemen’s Association held a groundbreaking ceremony Sunday for a new 100-by-60-foot barn and 40-by-60-foot office building that will become the Draft Animal Museum just south of Auburn. Association president Myron Stackhouse shared the association’s vision with dozens of people assembled in a sunny, grassy area near a pond as a swan swam silently on the water. The group always has had a dream to one day build a barn — to have some farmland on which to build a museum. Sunday, that dream came true, Stackhouse said. The buildings will house the association’s antique farm equipment, 10 wagons and other assorted implements. The club has used the draft horses to plant wheat and soybeans and hopes in the future to grow corn in patches, where children can come and watch the process from plowing to harvesting as an educational project, Stackhouse said. Stackhouse said they hope to one day build an arena in which to show animals and maybe add another barn for horses and perhaps a petting zoo. He thanked major donors “who made it all happen” including the Rick and Vicki James Foundation,
Dekko Foundation, The Andersons Charitable Foundation, The Mary C. & Perry F. Spencer Foundation; Joe Witmer and hundreds of other individual donors. Funds were started more than seven years ago, according to association secretary-treasurer Mark Carunchia. “We got involved in some farm opportunities and saved as much as we could,” Carunchia said. “We had a pretty good surplus from farming” to put a sizable down payment on the property — which includes 28 acres and a pond. A small mortgage remains, he said. In 2010 the fund held $5,000 in seed money. Since then, more than $130,000 has been added to the fund. “We are well underway,” Carunchia said. Harshman shared the history of the association that now numbers 76 members and more than 30 teams of horses. Some members own horses, some do not. It is not a requirement for membership, he said, only that members maintain the group’s goal, which is now focused on educating youth and adults about “what these heavy horses can do. “This is one of the ways we are going to do it here, by farming with horses,” Harshman said. The original group started in the 1930s “with a few gentlemen to promote the breeding draft

horses, and to go out to dinner,” Harshman said. “They would hold meetings and then go eat. That tradition lives with this club here today,” In 1942, the Draft Horse Club, now the Horsemen’s Association, incorporated, according to Harshman. With eight to 15 members, dues were 50 cents a year, and Harry Provines was the first president. The club met on a quarterly basis at that time. In about 1970, they began meeting on a bimonthly basis,
raising dues to $1 per year. “But they still had the same adage, the same principal, to promote the breeding of draft horses,” Harshman said. The association’s tradition will continue through public service educational programs, demonstrations, draft animal shows, funeral service assistance, 4-H club involvement and horsedrawn services for both public and private events covering all 12 months of the calendar year.

A black-capped chickadee.
I learned when I was a boy, was the black-capped. Its range, summer and winter, is the northern half of the United States and the southern half of Canada, from the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific, and in the West north into Alaska. Chickadees live all across North America. To the south is the Carolina, to the north is the boreal, and in the West is the mountain chickadee. All are similar in size and appearance. In “Birds of America,” the black-capped chickadee is described as frolicking and frisking from tree to tree, happy and carefree. I’ve seen all four species of chickadee, and they all act that way throughout the day. Only in heavy rain or snow or strong wind and at night are chickadees still — and when one is incubating a clutch of eggs. Chickadees have to be active when they’re awake. Their metabolism is high, and they’re so little they have little fat reserve. They eat incessantly when awake, acquiring energy

at about the same rate they’re using it. At night and during severe weather when they are forced to be inactive, their metabolism slows and they become sluggish, torpid. Black-capped and Carolina chickadees are common feeder birds. They don’t crowd a feeder like house sparrows and house finches, mourning doves, grackles and starlings. They fly back and forth between a feeder and the branches of nearby trees and bushes. Food habit studies have shown, however, that their primary food is insects and
small spiders. When flitting about among the leaves or the bare branches in winter, they’re feeding like warblers, gleaning insects, insect larvae and eggs. Seeds are supplemental food. The percent of seeds eaten increases in winter, as would be expected and as any bird feeder observer can tell if he or she counts chickadees coming to a feeder. Count chickadees! Sure, and when you’ve managed to do that, count snowflakes the next time it snows. Counting snowflakes might even be easier if it isn’t snowing heavily, because the snowflakes will all be falling, not whisking up and down, back and forth. Chickadees nest in cavities, in deserted downy woodpecker holes, natural cracks and crevices in trees, in bird houses that aren’t occupied by house wrens, house sparrows or other birds. Being last in line for cavity nest sites, it hardly seems possible that chickadees can be among our most common woodland and feeder birds. I’d prove they are if only they’d sit still and let me count them. NEIL CASE may be reached at email@example.com.

Health law getting real for Americans WASHINGTON (AP) — Now is when Americans start figuring out that President Barack Obama’s health care law goes beyond political talk, and really does affect them and people they know. With a cranky federal website complicating access to new coverage and some consumers being notified their existing plans are going away, the potential for winners and losers is creating anxiety and confusion. “I’ve had questions like, ‘Are they going to put me in jail if I don’t buy insurance? Because nobody will sell it to me,’” said Bonnie Burns, a longtime community-level insurance counselor from California. “We have family members who are violently opposed to ‘Obamacare’ and they are on Medicaid — they don’t understand that they’re already covered by taxpayer benefits. “And then there is a young man with lupus who would have never been insurable,” Burns continued. “He is on his parents’ plan and he’ll be able to buy his own coverage. They are very relieved.” A poll just out from the
President Barack Obama speaks at Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall about the federal health care law. With a cranky federal website complicating access to

nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation documents shifts in the country in the month since insurance sign-ups began. Fifty-five percent now say they have enough

information to understand the law’s impact on their family, up 8 percentage points in just one month. Part of the reason is that advertising about how to get coverage is beginning to

France: Two journalists in Opposition leader Mali were shot to death in Bahrain charged with ‘insults’ PARIS (AP) — Two veteran French journalists kidnapped and killed in northern Mali were shot to death, French authorities said Sunday, as questions emerged about how the gunmen managed to carry out the attack near a town where both French troops and U.N. forces are based. The slayings of Ghislaine Dupont, 51, and Claude Verlon, 58, shocked France and underscored how insecure parts of northern Mali remain months after a French-led military intervention against al-Qaida and other extremists. The new details, shared by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius after a meeting of key ministers with French President Francois Hollande, failed to clarify who was behind the killings and why the pair was targeted. He said the two were shot multiple times and their bodies found near the vehicle that whisked them away. Earlier, four Malian officials, including the head of the armed forces in Kidal said the journalists’ throats
had been slit. Their bodies were flown to the Malian capital of Bamako on Sunday, and were to be returned to France on Monday. The Radio France Internationale journalists were kidnapped Saturday after interviewing a Tuareg rebel leader in Kidal. The northern town is under de facto rebel control despite the presence of French and U.N. troops. French troops, alerted to the kidnappings, set up checkpoints, sent out patrols and called in helicopters to search for the journalists, French military spokesman Col. Gilles Jaron said. But a patrol arrived too late, finding the abandoned vehicle east of the town and the bodies nearby. The French troops, some 200 of
whom are based at the Kidal airport, had earlier found no trace of the fleeing vehicle. Fabius said the bodies were found some 12 kilometers (8 miles) outside Kidal and “several meters” from the vehicle. RFI chief Marie-Christine Saragosse said they were found 80 meters (87 feet) from the kidnappers’ vehicle. The killings were “odious, abject and revolting,” Fabius said. He said one journalist had been hit with three bullets, the other two — but that the car, whose doors were locked, showed no impact from bullets. Cecile Megie, RFI’s executive editor, said the two journalists had been seized by a group that spirited them away in a beige pickup truck. “The site showed no trace of fighting, gunfire. It was an execution,” Megie said. Despite January’s French-led intervention and a presidential election since, much of Mali, especially the vast north, remains in turmoil.
MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — The head of Bahrain’s main opposition group was charged Sunday with insulting authorities through an exhibition that showed alleged abuses against anti-government protesters, a lawyer said, in a move that could sharply raise tensions in the violence-wracked Gulf nation. The charges against Ali Salman, the head of the Shiite bloc Al Wefaq, came just hours after a court sentenced four suspects to life in prison for alleged ties to Shiite militant factions and acting as spies for Iran. Bahrain accuses Iran of aiding the 32-month uprising by the kingdom’s majority Shiites against the ruling Sunni dynasty. Iran denies the accusations and no firm evidence has been produced. But the claims by Bahrain’s Western-backed leading have been echoed by other
Gulf Arab nations that fear Iran seeks to destabilize their networks of ruling clans. More than 65 people have been killed in Bahrain’s Arab Spring-inspired protests seeking a greater political voice for Shiites on the strategic island nation, which is home to the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. Some rights groups place the overall death toll higher. It’s unclear whether Salman will face trial, which could touch off wider clashes. Prosecutors have the option of not bringing the case to court. Al Wefaq’s lawyer Abdullah al-Shamlawi said Salman was not jailed after being charged and was allowed to return home following questioning. Across the Gulf, courts have issued prison terms as long as 15 years for perceived insults against rulers on social media or other forums.

Soup serves up reminder of brother-in-law BY ELAINE TOGNERI
“Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.” — Ludwig van Beethoven I cut the roots and leaf stems off six leeks and wash them well. I slice the white and light green parts of the stalks. Their onion-like scent permeates the kitchen. Soon onions will join them and carry their fragrance throughout the house. I don’t remember when I first made my version of potato leek soup based on a recipe from “Joy of Cooking,” but once I did, it became the most popular dish in our family’s Easter tradition. “Did you make the soup?” was the first question everyone asked when they arrived to celebrate the holiday. I didn’t dare stop making it. I peel and slice a couple of large white onions. Tears sting my eyes. Chopping onions is a good way to grieve without being obvious. I add chunks of butter to a large stainlesssteel stockpot and turn on the burner. Returning to the cutting board, I continue chopping. The pile of vegetables grows. When I finish, I toss everything in

with the sizzling butter. No one loved my soup more than my husband’s older brother Jo-Jo. The creamy flavor satisfied even the taste buds of this heavy smoker. He was always first in line when we served the soup and back for seconds soon after. I wash and peel potatoes. After rinsing them again, I pat them dry with a paper towel. I stop and stir the butter-leek-onion saute between slicing potatoes. The kitchen smells even better than before. Even after Jo-Jo had surgery for throat cancer and ate via a feeding tube, he enjoyed the soup. He thinned it a bit to pump it into his stomach. “Soup’s

good,” he told me, his eyes as bright as his smile. We talked about the books we were reading and favorite authors as I put the final touches on the holiday meal. I add the potatoes to the pot and pour enough chicken stock in to cover everything. The soup needs to simmer until the potatoes are tender. I’ve dirtied several spatulas and dripped stock across the stove. The counters are covered with discarded damp towels, onion skins and potato peels. I am not a neat cook, but neatness doesn’t count. Flavor does. Jo-Jo and his wife invited the whole family for Thanksgiving. “He’s not doing well,” my husband Paul said. “Let’s make the soup and take it,” I suggested. A hint of a smile crossed Paul’s face. “He’ll like that.” We arrived at their home, carrying a large container and a chafing dish. “We brought the soup,” I said. An echo went up around the dining room. “She made the soup.” Jo-Jo hurried away from the football game playing on the TV and
smiled. I handed him a small glass bowl filled with soup specially thinned for him that I’d kept warm. A batch at a time, I puree the soup in my food processor. The blades whirl, transforming the potatoes and vegetables into a velvety concoction that I return to a clean stockpot. I season with white pepper and salt and then add the final touch right before serving, a pint of light cream. Thanksgiving was the last time Jo-Jo enjoyed my soup. He passed in early December of that year. I only make the soup for special occasions. Every time I prepare it, I pause and shed a few tears. I think fondly of Jo-Jo, remembering how much he loved it. I imagine he’s watching my ritual with approval and telling me, “Soup’s good.” When I call the family to dinner, I wonder if they hear Jo-Jo too, because, before long, someone always shouts, “Soup’s good.” VISIT WWW.CHICKENSOUP.

HORSES: Knott involved in business, association FROM PAGE A1
Mostly sunny today with a daytime high of 53. A low of 42 is expected. Tuesday will be slightly warmer with a high of 59. Skies will be mostly cloudy. The overnight low will be in the high 40s. Cloudy skies on Wednesday with a 60 percent chance of rain. The high is expected be in the 60s and a low of 49.
Knott started working for Northern Indiana Fuel & Light in 1960. In 1976, he left the company to start his own excavation business. “I guess I just like working on my own,” he said. “My boys were old enough to help with it.” Today, the company roster includes sons Tim and Rob and a grandson. Knott is a family man in every sense of the word. Not only does he work with his sons and a grandson, but his sister, Judy Harshman, and brother, Jim, all own draft horses. All of his siblings live within two miles of each other. “I was born and raised just a mile from here,” Knott said from his company office. He said his recently deceased mother, Eloise, was a big supporter of the family’s endeavors. Knott’s “family” extends

beyond bloodlines. He is heavily involved in the DeKalb County Draft Horse Association. Association members truly seem to enjoy each other’s company — and plenty of good-natured ribbing. “We try to support each other,” Knott said. “Our club members are excellent. Everyone chips in to help each other.” The group has taken philanthropy as one of its key missions, and members such as Knott can be seen at a variety of functions throughout the year. “The club just wants to share its talent,” Knott said. “The disadvantaged people just love it. It’s very rewarding. It makes you feel good to do that for somebody else.” Big horses are a big hobby, Knott said. Each of his horses can eat a bale of hay a day. They also require daily exercise.
And sometimes, they can be almost as ornery as Bill Knott. He recalled the time a gate wasn’t properly latched, and he woke to find two of his horses, weighing in at approximately 2,200 pounds each, in his swimming pool. He said the situation was further compounded when he called Jim for help. Jim came to his aid, sure enough, but he also made sure the incident wasn’t a secret. “He called everybody under the sun to tell them what happened,” Bill Knott said. “Needless to say, it cost a chunk of money to get it fixed.” Family is family, and Knott sits up straighter when talking about his sons and his daughter, Heidi. “They’re all good workers,” he said. “They’re not afraid of work. I feel proud. I do.”

What’s ahead for New Jersey Gov. Christie if re-elected? HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — A second term all but assured, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is casting himself as an inclusive Republican who transcends political lines and a pragmatic leader whose results-oriented approach offers valuable lessons for dysfunctional party leaders in Washington. “We need to send a message to all of America that the only way our state and our country gets better is if people work together across the aisle,” Christie said during a rally in the campaign’s waning days at an Elks Lodge packed with pro-Christie Democrats. “My job is to be the CEO of this state, not to be some ideologue,” he added. It’s a closing message that doubles as the opening argument for a prospective presidential run. But a resounding victory Tuesday in a Democratic-leaning state over a little-known and underfunded state senator, as polls suggest is likely, doesn’t automatically translate into success at the national level. Democrats and Republicans agree that Christie always was positioned to win big in his first re-election test. Challenger Barbara Buono has struggled to attract support from even her party’s most devoted allies. Signaling how little confidence she has inspired in the party, the Democratic Governors Association, which is designed to help Democrats win governor’s races, spent less than $5,000 on the New Jersey contest while pouring more than $6 million into the Virginia election, also Tuesday. Other would-be Christie critics shied

SOCIAL SECURITY: Funds projected to run out benefits before 65. Only 10 percent say full eligibility should come after 67, the top eligibility age under current law. “I contributed to it. It’s my money,” said Joan McDonald, 65, of Annapolis, Md., who retired as an accountant this year and began collecting Social Security. “The plan was, ‘Contribute this and you get this.’ You can’t change the rules.” Survey respondents showed more willingness to support Social Security proposals that would mostly impact those with higher incomes. Forty-one percent expressed support for reducing benefits for seniors with higher incomes, compared with 44 percent who opposed the proposal. Whites were much more supportive of reducing benefits for high-earning seniors than minorities. Changes to Social Security are on the horizon because the trust funds that support the massive retirement and disability program are projected to run dry in
2033. At that point, Social Security would only collect enough taxes to pay about three-fourths of benefits. If Congress doesn’t act, benefits automatically would be cut by about 25 percent. A new round of budget talks underway in Washington could produce proposals to change Social Security. In previous budget talks, President Barack Obama has proposed adopting the chained CPI, making it one of the few issues on which he and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, agree. Other groups, including Obama’s 2010 deficit commission, have proposed raising the age when retirees can get full Social Security benefits. Among older Americans, the poll found the most popular idea for improving the program’s finances was raising the cap on income subject to Social Security taxes. Currently, the cap is $113,700, meaning those earning more do not pay Social Security taxes on wages above that threshold.

said. Mawhorter said she plans to send at least two postcards to each registered voter in Noble County. One would be sent before the beginning of absentee voting, and the other about a week before the vote centers would open, she said. Absentee voting would begin at the Noble County Courthouse 28 days before the election and include two Saturdays, Mawhorter said. Early voting at vote centers would take place on at least one Thursday, Friday and Saturday before the election. Mawhorter said hours
probably would be noon to 7 p.m. for early voting. She’s open to having it run for two weeks ahead of time, she said. Both Noble County Republican Chairman Randy Kirkpatrick and Noble County Democratic Chairman Robert Holbrook said the political parties help get voters who wish to vote but need transportation to the polls on Election Day, and that won’t change. The question is whether people will take advantage of early voting to avoid long lines, Darland said, adding, “We don’t know if they’re going to vote early or not.”

Hall of Fame call brings Joy Kroemer honored by W. Michigan KALAMAZOO — Western Michigan University inducted Auburn native and DeKalb High School graduate Joy Kroemer into its athletic hall of fame Oct. 18. Kroemer excelled in two seasons as a softball player for Western in 1994 and 1995, earning All-Mid-America Conference honors in both seasons. She compiled a .303 career batting average and a perfect stolen-base percentage with success in all 14 attempts. She ranks among the school’s all-time leaders in hits, runs batted in and triples. Kroemer transferred to Western Michigan after two seasons at Lake Michigan College, where she played on a national champion junior college team in her
sophomore year. After college, Kroemer played with the Colorado Silver Bullets women’s professional baseball managed by legendary major league pitcher Phil Niekro. The team traveled the United States and Taiwan, playing against only men’s teams. Kroemer also played in a short-lived women’s professional football league. She now serves as a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army, based with the 335th Signal Command in Eastpoint, Ga. She met her husband, David Dulen, while both were serving in Iraq in 2005. They are the parents of a 7-month-old son, Adam Paul. SEE KROEMER, PAGE B2

Briefs • Vettel wins again ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — World champion Sebastian Vettel won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in dominant fashion Sunday to clinch a seventh straight victory and 11th of the season. Although the German had already clinched his fourth consecutive world title at the Indian GP last weekend, he pledged there would be no let up. Starting from second on the grid, Vettel overtook his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber on the first turn and was untroubled after that. “Obviously, winning is very special,” Vettel said. “Seven races in a row — every single one is tough.” He beat second-placed Webber by 30.8 seconds and Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg by 33.6 seconds. Lotus driver Romain Grosjean was fourth and two-time former champion Fernando Alonso finished fifth — although stewards were investigating the Spaniard for a passing move on Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne late on. Vettel now has 37 career race wins and, with two races left, can match Michael Schumacher’s single-season record of 13 wins in 2004 — during which the German also won seven in a row. Schumacher also won 11 races in 2002.

DENVER (AP) — Denver Broncos coach John Fox needs heart surgery and will miss several weeks, team spokesman Patrick Smyth confirmed Saturday night. The 58-year-old Fox will undergo aortic valve replacement surgery early next week at a hospital in Charlotte, N.C. The Broncos did not immediately name an interim head coach. Fox had been told earlier about his heart condition and was hoping to put off the Fox operation until February. As part of his trip to North Carolina over the Broncos’ bye week, he met with his cardiologist and was told to seek medical attention immediately if he felt any discomfort. On Saturday, Fox became dizzy playing golf near his offseason home and was taken to a hospital, where tests revealed he couldn’t wait any longer to have the surgery. “I sincerely appreciate all of the support from friends, Denver Broncos fans and so many around the league today,” Fox said in a statement released by the team Saturday night. “Although I am disappointed I must take some time away from the team to attend to this pre-existing health condition, I understand that it’s the right thing to do. I have great confidence in our coaches and players, who are fully committed to our goals. “I look forward to returning to coaching as soon as possible.”
Johnson regains Chase lead with Texas victory FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Jimmie Johnson is the leader again in the Chase for the Sprint Cup title after a dominating victory Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway. The five-time Cup champion knows all too well that his seven-point lead over Matt Kenseth is far from overwhelming with two races left in the season. Johnson also left the Lone Star State last November with a victory and seven-point lead — and lost the championship to Brad Keselowski. “I hope history doesn’t repeat itself,” Johnson said. “That is the perfect example of this thing isn’t over until it’s over. Last year we
had eight great races and two bad ones and didn’t get the championship. … There are two very important races left.” Kenseth and Johnson were tied in points when they got to Texas, though Kenseth was considered the leader based on his seven wins. Johnson led 255 of 334 laps for his sixth win this season while becoming only the second three-time Cup winner at the high-banked 1½-mile Texas track. The No. 48 Chevrolet finished more than 4 seconds ahead of Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. “The 48 was in another class SEE CHASE, PAGE B2

Kenyans sweep NYC Marathon
Priscah Jeptoo of Kenya crosses the finish line first in the women’s division at the 2013 New York City Marathon in New York.
NEW YORK (AP) — Geoffrey Mutai ran by himself through Central Park, the same scene as the last New York City Marathon. The race’s return to the five boroughs looked no different from the past in many ways, yet much had changed. The streets were still crammed with runners and the sidewalks with fans, undaunted by the tight security. Mutai successfully defended his title Sunday, while fellow Kenyan Priscah Jeptoo came from behind to win the women’s race. Mutai broke the course record in New York two years ago, then the 2012 race never happened because of the destruction from Superstorm Sandy. The April bombings at the Boston Marathon bared the vulnerability of an event that packs city streets with people. So barricades blocked off much of the park, and fans waited in bag-check lines to get in. Still, there were plenty of spectators to urge on Jeptoo to chase down Buzunesh

nine-play, 51-yard drive in overtime capped by Hauschka’s winner. Tampa Bay fell to 0-8 for the first time since 1985 when the Buccaneers started the season 0-9. Mike James rush for a career-best 158 yards for the Buccaneers. CHIEFS 23, BILLS 13 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Sean Smith returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and Tamba Hali scored on an 11-yard fumble return in the Chiefs’ win over Buffalo. The defense made up for a sputtering offense that managed just 210 yards, and for its own deficiencies. The Chiefs gave up a season-worst 470 yards to a Bills (3-6) offense that was led by undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, making his first career start. Tuel finished 18 of 39 for 229 yards passing, including a 59-yard touchdown to Marquise Goodwin. Tuel, however, threw two interceptions that led to 10 points for the Chiefs. Kansas City (9-0) remained the NFL’s only undefeated team and matched the best start in franchise history set in 2003. The Chiefs held an opponent to 17 points or fewer for the ninth straight time — matching the NFL record set by the Atlanta Falcons in 1977. JETS 26, SAINTS 20 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Nick Folk remained perfect this season by kicking four field goals, Rex Ryan’s defense held Drew Brees and the high-scoring Saints to six points in the second half, and New York had seven plays of at least 19 yards in an upset of New Orleans. Ryan is now 7-3 against his brother, Rob, and the Jets (5-4) maintained their string of alternating wins and losses. They tied the 2005 New England Patriots for the longest such string to begin a season, according to STATS. Folk is 23 for 23 on field goals and 14 of 14 on extra points. Interceptions by Demario Davis and Antonio Cromartie highlighted New York’s solid defensive performance, and former Saints running back Chris Ivory rushed for 139 yards and a touchdown. New Orleans (6-2) got two touchdown catches from Jimmy Graham, giving him 10 this season. BROWNS 24, RAVENS 18 CLEVELAND (AP) — Jason Campbell threw three touchdown passes — two to Davone Bess — and the Browns ended an 11-game losing streak against Baltimore. Campbell’s 3-yard pass to Bess on fourth down with three minutes left helped the Browns (4-5) seal their first win over Baltimore since 2007.
The Ravens (3-5) lost their third straight and didn’t win in the week following a bye for the first time in six tries under coach John Harbaugh. Baltimore’s Joe Flacco had a pair of TD passes to rookie Marlon Brown. Flacco finished 24 of 41 for 250 yards. Making his second straight start after Brandon Weeden was benched, Campbell completed 23 of 35 passes for 262 yards. The nine-year veteran was at his best in the closing minutes, when the Browns ran 6:30 off the clock to finish off the Ravens, who have lost four of five. PATRIOTS 55, STEELERS 31 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady threw for season highs of 432 yards and four touchdowns, Rob Gronkowski had a career-high nine receptions and the Patriots racked up the most points ever scored against Pittsburgh. Brady had 252 yards passing in the first half, more than he had in five of his other eight games for New England (7-2). New England piled up 610 yards overall, third most in team history. Three Patriots had more than 100 yards receiving, Gronkowski with 143, Aaron Dobson with 130 and Danny Amendola with 122. Pittsburgh (2-6) wasted a solid performance by Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for 400 yards and four touchdowns with two interceptions. COWBOYS 27, VIKINGS 23 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left, and the Cowboys beat the Vikings. Romo’s 7-yard pass to Harris answered an 11-yard touchdown by Adrian Peterson that had given Minnesota a 23-20 lead. The East Texas kid raised on the Cowboys (5-4) had 140 yards rushing in his first game at their $1.2 billion stadium. Christian Ponder threw for a touchdown and ran for another score against his hometown team, but it wasn’t enough to avoid a fourth straight loss for the Vikings (1-7). Jason Witten had eight catches for 102 yards and a TD for Dallas. PANTHERS 34, FALCONS 10 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton threw for one touchdown and ran for another to overcome a shaky start, the defense intercepted Matt Ryan three times and Carolina beat the Falcons for its fourth straight victory. Newton had two first half interceptions and wasn’t sharp on his deep balls, regularly overthrowing his receivers. Yet he bounced
back to throw for 249 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown pass to tight end Greg Olsen. He also ran for an 8-yard touchdown for the Panthers (5-3). Fullback Mike Tolbert scored his fifth touchdown in the last four games on a 4-yard burst and cornerback Drayton Florence intercepted Ryan and returned it 38 yards for a score to seal the win. Ryan was 20 of 27 for 219 yards. The Falcons (2-6) continued to struggle without Julio Jones and Roddy White. Tony Gonzalez had six catches for 81 yards and a touchdown but the Falcons were held to 78 yards rushing. REDSKINS 30, CHARGERS 24, OT LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Darrel Young scored three times, including a 4-yard run in overtime that gave the Redskins a win over the Chargers. Young stormed his way into the end zone 6:01 into the extra period, with the Redskins scoring on their first drive after winning the coin toss at the end of regulation. Washington blew a 10-point lead in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, but a goal-line stand at the 1-yard line helped send the game to overtime. Robert Griffin III completed 23 of 32 passes for 291 yards with one interception and ran six times for 17 yards, including a 10-yard ramble that ended when he was flung to the turf by Thomas Keiser near the sideline. Alfred Morris rushed 25 times for 121 yards and a score, Pierre Garcon had seven receptions for 172 yards, and the defense intercepted Philip Rivers twice as the Redskins (3-5), despite their record, remained competitive in the weak NFC East. Rivers was 29 for 46 for 341 yards with two touchdowns for the Chargers (4-4). TITANS 28, RAMS 21 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Chris Johnson ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns and the Titans got the best of Jeff Fisher, who coached them for 16 seasons, and the Rams. Johnson’s 19-yard scoring run snapped a tie with 2:54 to go and came a snap after Jurrell Casey sacked and stripped quarterback Kellen Clemens, and Derrick Morgan recovered. The Rams (3-6) got a second straight 100-yard game from rookie Zac Stacy, who had 127 yards on 27 carries and two touchdowns. The Titans (4-4) snapped a three-game losing streak and won after their bye against a team on short rest. The 100-yard game was Johnson’s first since Week 7 last season against Buffalo. In the previous four games, he’d totaled 110 yards.
Deba, a Bronx resident who finished runner-up for the second straight time in her hometown race. Nobody was catching Mutai, who pulled away around Mile 22 and beat Ethiopia’s Tsegaye Kebede by 52 seconds. On a windy morning, Mutai’s time of 2 hours, 8 minutes, 24 seconds was well off his course record of 2:05:06 set in nearly perfect conditions two years ago. He’s the first man to repeat in New York since Kenya’s John Kagwe in 1997-98. “To defend your title is not easy,” Mutai said. “As you see the course today, the weather today, it was not easy. Even for me, I try all I can, but I was not believing that I can finish like that.” Jeptoo trailed Deba by nearly 3½ minutes at the halfway point. She made her move as the race entered Manhattan after a race official on a bike told her how big the gap was. “So I started to push the pace,” she said. “I was having confidence that I will make it.”
Deba was slowed by stomach cramps, and Jeptoo passed the Ethiopian with just more than 2 miles left. The 2012 Olympic silver medalist and 2013 London Marathon champ, Jeptoo won in 2:25:07 to clinch the $500,000 World Marathon Majors bonus. Last year’s late cancellation of the event in New York incensed many residents and runners, but there was little sign of those sour feelings Sunday. City and marathon officials initially vowed that the race would go on, and New Yorkers balked at the idea of possibly diverting resources amid such devastation. But by the time the decision to cancel was made, many out-of-town entrants had already traveled to the city. Plenty came back a year later. A record 50,740 runners started. The women’s race played out almost identically to the last NYC Marathon two years ago. But this time, Deba was the pursued, not the pursuer. In 2011, Mary Keitany took a big early lead, and
Deba and countrywomen Firehiwot Dado chased her down. Dado, who won that day, was 14th Sunday as the defending champ. This time, Deba and training partner Tigist Tufa separated themselves right from the start. Deba wound up finishing 48 seconds behind Jeptoo, while Tufa fell back to eighth. “That’s my plan,” Deba said. “I need to run my best time. My training is very good. I prepared very good.” Jelena Prokopcuka of Latvia, who won the NYC Marathon in 2005 and ‘06, placed third at age 37, returning to the podium after the birth of her son. Kebede, the London Marathon champ, clinched the $500,000 bonus for the World Marathon Majors men’s title. South Africa’s Lusapho April was third. Mutai proved again that when he’s healthy, he’s the best in the world. He ran the fastest marathon in history, 2:03:02 in Boston in 2011, which didn’t count as a world record because the course is too straight and downhill.
Pistons knock off Celtics BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Josh Smith, Andre Drummond and Josh Smith scored 15 points each Sunday night and the Detroit Pistons kept the Boston Celtics and first-year coach Brad Stevens winless with an 87-77 victory. The Pistons (2-1) trailed 65-63 early in the fourth quarter but went on a 10-0 run to take the lead for good and win their second home game in as many tries. Drummond added 12 rebounds and Brandon Jennings had 14 points in his Detroit debut. Rookie Kelly Olynyk scored 15 points and Jordan Crawford added 13 for the Celtics (0-3). Boston, which blew a
22-point lead in Friday’s loss to Milwaukee, trailed by as many as 15 points in the third quarter but went on a 13-0 run to take the lead. Detroit answered with the decisive run and held on in the final minutes after the Celtics cut the lead to 79-77 with less than 2 minutes to play. Jennings, who missed most of the preseason and the first two games because of a fractured jaw caused by a wisdom tooth, had a steal and got the ball to Rodney Stuckey, who made two free throws to give the Pistons some breathing room. Detroit held the Celtics scoreless the rest of the way. The Pistons outscored
the Celtics 10-5 in the last 5 minutes of the first half and took a 45-35 lead. Boston made just five field goals in the second quarter and had that many turnovers. HEAT 103, WIZARDS 93 LeBron James scored 25 points, Chris Bosh added 24 and the Miami Heat beat the winless Washington Wizards 103-93 on Sunday night to snap a rare two-game slide. Dwyane Wade scored 20 points for Miami, which hasn’t dropped three straight regular-season games since Jan. 10-13, 2012. The Heat (2-2) had 32 assists on 37 field goals, including on all nine of their baskets in the third quarter.
CHASE: Winner shows he still has fight left in him FROM PAGE B1
and nobody had anything for them,” said Earnhardt, who had his fifth runner-up finish this season and has been top 10 in six of the last seven Chase races. Joey Logano finished third, ahead of Kenseth while Kasey Kahne, another Hendrick driver, was fifth. Johnson got his 66th career victory, including a record 24 wins in Chase races. But he and crew chief Chad Knaus are now in their third season since winning their fifth consecutive championship. “I’ve been watching a lot of MMA fighting lately, and you’ll fall into a rhythm and think that somebody’s got a fight won, and it doesn’t end that way,” Johnson said. “It’s how this is going to be. Matt didn’t have maybe the best day, but he still finished fourth. This thing is going to the last lap at Homestead. It’s going to come down to mistake.” Kenseth was running second behind Johnson for much of the first half of the race before getting penalized for speeding. That dropped Kenseth to 16th place and more than 28 seconds back, though the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota recovered for a top-five finish. “We were just being too aggressive. Honestly, the 48 had us … they were just dominant all weekend,” Kenseth said. “That speeding penalty got us behind us. We
definitely didn’t need that, but really I don’t know at the end of the day that it really affected our finish much.” At Phoenix, where the Chase goes next Sunday, Johnson is a four-time winner and finished second in March. His average finishing spot of 6.4 there is significantly better than the 17.2 for Kenseth, who has one victory at Phoenix and finished seventh there eight months ago. “I’m still confident,” Kenseth said. “I felt real good going to Phoenix last year, and I thought we were in good shape and we had a problem. I’ve never seen it this tight, so I don’t feel any better really this year than I did last year,” car owner Rick Hendrick said. “I think Jimmie has been very confident, but nobody has said he was unbeatable this year. Really, Matt’s been right there the whole year.” Kenseth was still running second when Johnson pulled down pit road, a lap before Kenseth came in as the last to pit on a cycle of green-flag stops. But Kenseth was caught speeding on pit road and had to serve a drive-through penalty. By time he got back on the track, he was the last car on the lead lap and about 25 seconds further behind than he had been before the two had pitted. A caution a few laps later got Kenseth up three
spots, but more importantly tightened up the field. Within a few laps after the ensuing restart, Kenseth was back in the top 10 and climbing. By then, Kyle Busch had moved back into second, the same spot he was before a right front tire went down and put into in the outside wall on lap 57 to bring out a caution. Busch, who won the spring race in Texas, would up 13th. When Busch went into the wall, he was between Johnson and Kenseth, who went onto pit road 1-2. The top Chase contenders didn’t exit that way. While Johnson had a quick stop, he was second out behind polesitter Carl Edwards, who had the stall closest to the scoring line. Kenseth has an issue on his stop that dropped him to sixth. Edwards, who had been the only three-time Cup winner at Texas, led six times for 38 times. But Edwards finished only 187 laps before an engine failure ended his day. Four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon, the other Hendrick driver, was in contention for another championship after his win a week earlier at Martinsville moved him up to a seasonhigh third in points. But on Lap 74, the front left tire on the No. 24 Chevrolet blew, sending Gordon high and hard into the wall between the first and second turns.
KROEMER: Honoree grew up playing baseball FROM PAGE B1
Kroemer is the daughter of Jim and Cheryl Kroemer of Syracuse. In her hall of fame acceptance remarks, she credited them and her brothers, Dr. Aaron Kroemer and Adam Kroemer, for her success in athletics. She said her parents never pushed her in sports, “They just supported me.”
Her older brothers taught her how to play baseball, she added. “I grew up playing baseball. I never played softball,” she said at the hall of fame ceremony. At DeKalb, “My freshman year, I wanted to try out for the baseball team,” she said, but softball coach Don Myers encouraged her to try
softball for a week. “I thought, man, this is easy. I think I could play this in college now, so I think I’m going to stick with this,” she said about softball. Kroemer said she was “completely surprised, humbled, proud, excited” about her selection for Western Michigan’s hall of fame.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, left, talks with head coach Urban Meyer during the first half of an NCAA college football game against Purdue in West Lafayette.
Meyer puts title talk on hold WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is already installing his bye week game plan. He wants players to stop talking about the national title quest and ignore anyone who dares to bring it up. No, the man with two national championship rings, a top-five ranking and a perfect 21-0 record since coming to Columbus isn’t trying to downplay what the Buckeyes are really chasing, he’s trying to avoid this week’s one potential pitfall: Distractions. “We have to make sure we’re not worried about anything like that,” Meyer said Saturday. “That’s the unfortunate thing about bye weeks. You let guys go for weekends and they start hearing stuff like that and we just have to come back stronger and faster.” It’s hard to fathom the Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) playing any better than they are now. Since taking their first open date, the week of Oct. 12, Ohio State has outscored Iowa, Penn State and Purdue by a combined 153-38. In its latest rout, Saturday at Purdue, the Buckeyes led 28-0 after one quarter, 42-0 at halftime and wound up handing Purdue (1-7, 0-4) its worst home loss ever. The 56-point loss equals the school’s record, matching 56-0 defeats to Iowa in 1922 and Chicago in 1907.
Florida State gains ground in AP polling BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
No. 3 Florida State gains ground on No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon in The Associated Press college football poll, earning four more first-place votes than it did last week. The Seminoles are coming off another easy victory against a previously unbeaten rival. Florida State beat Miami 41-14 on Saturday night and received six-first-place votes from the media panel Sunday. Last month the Seminoles handed Clemson its first loss. Alabama remains No. 1 with 52 first-place votes, three less than last week. Oregon received two first-place votes, a loss of one for the Ducks. Miami’s first loss drops it seven spot to 14th. Notre Dame moved back into the rankings at No. 24 and Michigan fell out after losing to Michigan State. The Spartans advance six spots to 18th.
Michigan bill would make ticket scalping legal LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan lawmaker wants to make it legal to sell game or concert tickets above face value. Legislation introduced last week would repeal a 1931 state law that makes it illegal to scalp tickets unless authorized by the venue or event operators. Some online ticket sites have partnerships with teams and venues. Republican Rep. Tim Kelly of Saginaw Township says he is lining up bipartisan support for his bill. He says it’s a common-sense measure that would let the free market decide the price of a ticket. Kelly says there’s no reason for the government to interfere in a transaction between a willing buyer and willing seller. The legislation now goes to a House committee for consideration.
Djokovic tops Ferrer in Paris Masters tennis title match PARIS (AP) — Novak Djokovic beat defending champion David Ferrer 7-5, 7-5 Sunday to win the Paris Masters for his 17th straight match victory and sixth title of the season. The second-seeded Serb still has a slim chance to finish the season ranked ahead of No. 1 Rafael Nadal. Djokovic improved to 11-5 against Ferrer, who was looking to become the first player to win back-to-back Paris Masters titles. Djokovic won the last four games in each set, rallying each time from a 5-3 deficit. Djokovic clinched the victory when the Spaniard sent a forehand into the net. Djokovic hit 34 winners to 15 for Ferrer and won 15 of 18 net points. Ferrer troubled Djokovic early in the match with his deep groundstrokes and hit a backhand drop shot to break for a 3-2 lead.

Outreach aims to increase parent involvement in schools Since the research is clear and the results are obvious, why aren’t more parents involved at school? The simple question has a complex answer. The research is conclusive. High levels of parental engagement lead to high levels of academic achievement. In fact, the power of parental involvement is so strong that according to the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory gains in school success occur regardless of parental income or a parent’s level of academic attainment. Eighty-seven percent of parents attend meetings at school, a 13 percent increase since 1996. However, a national BILL survey of teachers found that “lack of parental support” is STANCZYKIEWICZ the top challenge faced in the classroom. Why aren’t more parents involved? There are several reasons. “A lot of parents don’t know, and they don’t know how to say, ‘I don’t know,’” explained Dennis Bland, executive director of the Center for Leadership Development, an Indianapolis community organization teaching study and postsecondary readiness skills to low-income School districts can students and their families. volunteer to be assessed Bland said many parents — especially those who did by the Indiana Departsucceed in school — need ment of Education to instruction and encouragement to speak up, ask evaluate and, where questions and advocate for their student. necessary, improve “We let them know parental involvement that they are not alone, that there’s always strategies. The DOE something where at least also can designate a one person does not have enough information,” school as an “Indiana Bland continued. “We Family Friendly educate parents to let them know the steps they can School.” take to get the information they need. We give them examples of other people who were in the situations like they are, but those other people took advantage of resources, and they can do the same.” As a result, Bland concluded, “The parents can feel empowered.” Meanwhile, some expert educators need help translating to parents. According to Ron Mirr, president of the Center for Active Family Engagement, “What (the educators) see makes great sense to them. They understand all of the lingo. They understand the jargon. But what is it like for the parent who has not been in the school? Is it really understandable to a stranger? “We try to help (educators) see what their school looks like to someone outside the system.” Mirr’s Family Engagement Assessment — which surveys parents, teachers and administrators — now is being implemented in Hoosier schools by the Indiana Partnerships Center. Executive director Jackie Garvey asserted, “Unless you ask families, you’re not going to know (how to get them involved).” Sheryl Stanton, who leads parent engagement efforts for Huntingburg Elementary School, added that she discerns a family’s needs before persuading parents to become more connected. “Housing, health, hunger,” Stanton said, listing common family challenges. “We often need to get to the needs in the home first before (parents) can address academics.” Linking families to supportive services, and partnering with community organizations like the Center for Leadership Development are included on an extensive list of parent involvement strategies recommended by the National PTA. Other recommendations include asking involved parents to invite their neighbors to become active at school and conducting “back to school” walks through the community to meet parents and encourage their participation. The PTA also suggests creating a family resource center in the school where parents can access computers, take adult education or GED classes or simply wait for their next parent-teacher conference. The PTA encourages schools to host workshops on parenting skills including how parents can support school work at home. Educators should contact parents with positive news about their children instead of only communicating bad news, and spring orientation sessions can help parents start preparing for the next school year. Under a new state law, school districts can volunteer to be assessed by the Indiana Department of Education to evaluate and, where necessary, improve parental involvement strategies. The DOE also can designate a school as an “Indiana Family Friendly School.” Democratic state Sen. Tim Skinner of Terre Haute, a former teacher, said, “This is a great opportunity to distinguish schools in their communities for reaching out to families and trying to get them more involved.” The research summarized by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory reveals that successful parent engagement efforts build trusting, collaborative relationships between parents and educators, recognize and address family needs and embrace a philosophy of partnership. Or as Dennis Bland stated succinctly, “Show them how much you care.”

Letters to The Editor • Halloween started as a religious observance To the editor: We just finished celebrating Halloween — a busy and expensive holiday in America second only to Christmas. Halloween started as a religious observance. The original Celtic “Samhain” (end-of-summer celebration) began around 800 B.C. Celts, who lived in the United Kingdom, Western Europe and parts of Turkey, believed a “veil” separating this world from the next was thinnest at the end of October. So this was the prime time for deceased souls to escape their after-life and return to earth — often living in animals (especially black cats). Samhain became the traditional eve to offer food sacrifices to the Celtic gods. Groups gathered in early evening and went from door to door on their unlighted streets collecting food. They often dressed in scary costumes to frighten away evil spirits that might be lurking in the shadows. Later that night they would assemble with their collected food, throw it on huge bonfires and send it heavenward to their hungry gods. In the 7th century, Pope Boniface IV proclaimed Nov. 1 as All Saints’ Day to recognize the many saints (which by then already exceeded the number of days in a year). Since hallow meant saint in England, the evening before All Saints Day became All Hallows’ Eve, then later Hallowe’en, and finally
Halloween. Pope Boniface chose the Nov. 1 date to steer Christians away from the Celtic Samhain celebration. We know such superstitions as Samhain are beliefs in beings, stories and events for which there is little or no evidence, at least as reported. Superstitions are more common among people having limited or very narrow educations, and are often tied to religious wishes and fears about an after-life in places that still remain mysteriously unprovable. But because of three powerful human instincts — survival, greed and fear — beliefs in spirits and an afterlife remain very popular. In some cases believing in eternity works favorably, causing some to become kinder and more caring toward others. But such beliefs also have divided and/or destroyed millions of innocent people. Why? Because feelings of self-righteousness and martyrdom often spring from such beliefs, causing many to think they should convert or kill others who don’t believe as they do. For most of my 80 years I have believed in a paradise. Yet I can accept that paradise may be just a selfish dream. Do I worry that if I DON’T believe I might go to hell? Nope. I have discovered that overcoming anger and hatred, learning to be kind to ALL others, and sharing what little I have with others has given me the most joyful living experience I could hope for. I am confident the God that Jesus described — a kind, loving and
forgiving Father — does not frown on me or anyone else just because we are unafraid to seek the truth, to ask questions or refuse to believe in ancient superstitions and other un-Godlike irrational, magical events. Beliefs in an after-life should never prevent us from loving others. We should open our hearts to all and understand they, too, have learned to believe as they do. All of us can overcome our fears and superstitions and become productive citizens capable of making this world a little better place for everyone. Then if we die and discover there isn’t an afterlife? You can rest assured as you approach that final day you’ll have no fears or regrets — knowing you made this world a little safer, kinder and better place for some of God’s other children to enjoy. E. Gene Gorrell Fremont

• ridiculous headgear, you are signaling that you have no arrows in your quiver. This is especially relevant to women candidates for two reasons. One, men beating up a woman summons a number of associations that only make women recoil in revulsion. Two, while you were hunkering in your duck blind, women the world over were getting busy organizing and helping each other. There’s a global movement afoot in which Hillary Clinton has played a crucial part. If you attack her, all but the most rigidly ideological women will circle the wagons and you will lose. On the bright side, you won’t have to worry anymore about birth control. Your own, that is. At the moment, though Hillary’s ratings have slipped a bit, the GOP holds the distinction of being the first party in polling history to have a negative rating over 50 percent (53), according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey. Thus, my advice: Marshal your sharpest thinkers and create a product that people want. If you can’t win with the strength of your arguments and the clarity of your vision, you can at least lose with your dignity intact — a decent start to a much-needed Republican Reformation.

Briefs • Alabama airport terminal evacuated BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The terminal at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport has been evacuated because of a threat. The airport’s Facebook page said the terminal had been evacuated Sunday because of a threat but didn’t elaborate. FBI spokesman Paul Daymond says the agency’s bomb technicians are working with local police to investigate. The airport website said several flights into the airport were being diverted. Police spokesman Johnny Williams said he and other officers were on their way to the airport Sunday evening but didn’t have any details on what prompted the evacuation. A call and email to the Birmingham Airport Authority wasn’t immediately returned. WBRC-TV reported that the station’s meteorologist was on the scene and confirmed that several planes from multiple airlines were parked away from the gates.
Militants kill 30 in Nigerian convoy YOLA, Nigeria (AP) — Suspected Islamic militants attacked a wedding convoy in northeast Nigeria and killed more than 30 people including the groom, a state government spokesman said Sunday. Military spokesman Lt. Col. Muhammed Dole said only five people were killed in Saturday’s attack on the highway between Gama and Gwoza towns in Borno state. That road runs alongside forests that are a known hideout of Islamic militants of the Boko Haram terrorist network.
Philly newspapers could be bought PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Multimillionaire businessman and philanthropist Raymond Perelman is hoping to buy the Philadelphia Inquirer, but he doesn’t expect the current owners to sell. Perelman said his goal is to end the strife between two factions that are battling in court for control of the company’s three media properties, the Inquirer reported Sunday. “Something has to happen,” Perelman told the paper. “The feuding can’t continue.” The 96-year-old Perelman has pursued The Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com before.
Hollywood • Sci-fi flick is tops with movie-goers LOS ANGELES (AP) — Weekend moviegoers chose sci-fi over slapstick. “Ender’s Game” scored the No. 1 slot at the weekend box office, earning $28 million in its opening weekend and sending “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” into second place, according to studio estimates Sunday. Based on the novel by Orson Scott Card, “Ender’s Game” stars Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford as intergalactic soldiers. Paramount’s candidcamera comedy starring Johnny Knoxville disguised as an old man brought in an additional $20.5 million in its second weekend, with a domestic total reaching more than $62 million. It also picked up $6 million in international ticket sales. CBS Films’ “Last Vegas,” featuring an all-star cast of silver screen veterans including Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline, opened in third place, with $16.5 million. Relativity Media’s 3-D animated kiddie flick “Free Birds,” with characters voiced by Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler, debuted in the fourth spot, with $16.2 million. “Gravity” is still holding in the fifth position. It banked $13.1 million.
Officials: No clemency for Snowden WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House and the leaders of the intelligence committee in Congress are rejecting National Security Agency-contractor Edward Snowden’s plea for clemency. “Mr. Snowden violated U.S. law,” White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday Snowden about the former systems-analyst-turned-fugitive who has temporary asylum in Russia. “He should return to the U.S. and face justice,” Pfeiffer said, adding when
pressed that no offers for clemency were being discussed. Snowden made the plea in a letter given to a German politician and released Friday. In his one-page typed letter, he asks for clemency for charges over allegedly leaking classified information about the NSA to the news media. “”Speaking the truth is not a crime,” Snowden wrote. Snowden’s revelations, including allegations that the U.S. has eavesdropped on allies including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, have led to calls by allies to cease such spying, and moves by Congress to overhaul U.S. surveillance laws and curb the agency’s
powers. But head of the Senate Intelligence Committee said if Snowden had been a true whistle-blower, he could have reported it to her committee privately. “That didn’t happen, and now he’s done this enormous disservice to our country,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. “I think the answer is no clemency.” The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, called clemency for Snowden a “terrible idea.” “He needs to come back and own up,” said Rogers, R-Mich. “If he believes there’s vulnerabilities in the systems he’d like to disclose, you don’t do it
by committing a crime that actually puts soldiers’ lives at risk in places like Afghanistan.” Rogers contended that Snowden’s revelations had caused three terrorist organizations to change how they communicate. Both lawmakers addressed word that President Barack Obama did not realize Merkel’s personal phone was being tapped. Rogers implied that he didn’t believe the president, or European leaders who claimed they were shocked by Snowden’s allegations. “I think there’s going to be some best actor awards coming out of the White House this year
and best supporting actor awards coming out of the European Union,” he said “Some notion that … some people just didn’t have an understanding about how we collect information to protect the United States to me is wrong.” Feinstein said she didn’t know what the president knew, but said she intended to conduct a review of all intelligence programs to see if they were going too far. “Where allies are close, tapping private phones of theirs … has much more political liability than probably intelligence viability,” she said. Feinstein and Rogers have taken grief for defending the NSA.
NYC mayor’s race closes out Tuesday NEW YORK (AP) — The race to elect the next mayor of New York City, which comes to an end Tuesday, in some ways got its start on Oct. 23, 2008. On that day, after rancorous debate, the City Council voted to overturn term limits, allowing Mayor Michael Bloomberg to get another four years to shape the nation’s largest city. But the aftershocks from that decision shaped much of what has followed in the topsy-turvy campaign to select Bloomberg’s successor, a marathon marked by heated debates about hot-button issues, larger-than-life characters and stunning political implosions. And, as voters get set to go to the polls, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio has emerged from the chaotic field poised to be the first Democrat chosen to lead the city since 1989. Every poll taken since the September primary has de Blasio with a commanding lead over Republican nominee Joe Lhota, a one-time deputy mayor to Rudolph Giuliani. An unabashed liberal, de Blasio said he will usher in a new
era of progressive governing by raising taxes on the rich, improving police and community relations and reaching out to those who feel slighted by what they believe were 12 years of Bloomberg’s de Blasio Manhattan-centric policies. More than any of his rivals for the Democratic nomination, de Blasio positioned himself as the cleanest break from the Bloomberg years, an argument that resonated with many suffering from what has become known as Bloomberg fatigue. “An awful lot of what has happened can be traced to that decision to give Bloomberg another four years,” said Jeanne Zaino, a New York University political science professor. “The third term is widely viewed as not as successful, but no matter how wonderful a mayor you are, people get tired of seeing you in their living room every night.”
Egypt changes venue for trial of ousted leader CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian authorities on Sunday moved the trial of the ousted Islamist president to a new location at another end of the capital, a move apparently aimed at thwarting mass rallies planned by the Muslim Brotherhood in his support when it opens today. Facing charges of incitement of violence with 14 others in connection to clashes last December, Mohammed Morsi has been held at an undisclosed location since his July 3 overthrow by the military. Morsi The trial will be his first public appearance since then, possibly enflaming an already tense political atmosphere as animosity between Morsi’s Islamist supporters and Egypt’s security establishment steadily deepens. “For (the Islamists) it will be like taking revenge on the police and the military,” said lawyer Khaled Abu-Bakr, representing three victims of the December clashes. “I
really hope that no blood is spilled tomorrow,” he added. The change of the venue was announced at a tumultuous news conference by appeals court judge Medhat Idris, who threw his statement in the air and stormed out of the room when Morsi supporters shouted in protest at the change. He later told The Associated Press by telephone that the trial will not be aired live. Other details about the proceedings, including where Morsi will be held during them, remain secret. A security official said Morsi will probably be taken back to the place he has been held instead of being transferred to a normal prison after the first session, for fear his supporters would turn the prison into a “focal point of endless protests.” The new venue is a heavily fortified police academy in an eastern Cairo suburb, already used for the trial of another former president — Hosni Mubarak — toppled in a 2011 uprising. He is accused of failing to stop the killing of protesters.

LAX shooter told cops, at scene, he was acting alone LOS ANGELES (AP) — The gunman charged in the deadly shooting at Los Angeles International Airport lay bloodied and handcuffed on the floor of Terminal 3 after being gunned down by police, but he replied to critical questions that helped authorities lock down the scene. Paul Ciancia, 23, was hauled away moments later on a stretcher and later heavily sedated for medical reasons, but not before he told investigators he had acted alone when he opened fire in the terminal, a law enforcement official who has been briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on Sunday. Ciancia, an unemployed motorcycle mechanic who recently moved to Los Angeles from the small, blue-collar town of Pennsville, N.J., also told police a friend had dropped him at LAX on Friday just moments before he shot a Transportation Security Administration officer

TORONTO (AP) — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford apologized Sunday for being “hammered” in public and acknowledged the need to curb his drinking, but the mayor of Canada’s largest city didn’t address allegations of drug use and said he will remain in his job despite mounting pressure to resign. “I’m going to weather this storm,” Ford said. Ford made his remarks on his local weekly radio show at a time when he is facing growing pressure to resign after police said they had obtained a copy of a video that appears to show him

pulled a .223-caliber assault rifle from his duffel bag and fired repeatedly at 39-yearold TSA officer Gerardo I. Hernandez. He turned back to see Hernandez move and returned to finish him off, according to surveillance video reviewed by investigators. He then fired on two other uniformed TSA employees and an airline passenger, who all were wounded, as he moved methodically through the security checkpoint before airport police shot him as panicked travelers hid in stores and restaurants. It wasn’t clear why Ciancia targeted TSA officers, but what he left behind indicated he was willing to kill any of them that crossed his path, authorities revealed. The shooter’s duffel bag contained a handwritten letter signed by Ciancia stating he’d “made the conscious decision to try to kill” multiple TSA employees and that he wanted to “instill fear in their traitorous minds.”

at point-blank range and wounded three other people, including two more TSA workers. Officials do not believe that the friend knew of the shooter’s plans. Ciancia arrived at the airport in a black Hyundai and was not a ticketed passenger. Ciancia was under 24-hour armed guard at the hospital Sunday after being shot four times, the official said. He was sedated for medical reasons, the official said, adding that one gunshot to the mouth blew a molar out of his jaw. Ciancia is facing charges of murder of a federal officer and committing violence at an international airport. The charges could qualify him for the death penalty. It was not immediately clear when he would make a first court appearance given his medical condition. In court documents and interviews, authorities spelled out a chilling chain of events, saying Ciancia walked into the airport,
puffing on a crack cocaine pipe. Ford didn’t address the contents of the tape, saying he cannot comment on a tape he hasn’t seen. “I just got to maybe slow down on my drinking,” Ford said. Ford acknowledged making “mistakes” and that he can’t change the past, but vowed “to ride the storm out.” “I want to move forward but to move forward I also have to make changes in my life which I will assure I will do,” Ford said. Ford declined to take a leave of absence or resign. “I sincerely apologize,
there’s absolutely no excuse, no one to blame but myself,” Ford said. “I am going to fight like no one has seen before to win the next election.” Ford said he shouldn’t’ have been drunk in public when he appeared at the Taste of the Danforth street festival in August. “That was pure stupidity,” Ford said. “I shouldn’t have got hammered down at the Danforth.

Woman offering thanks to vets not always welcome DEAR ABBY: Recently I took a cue from my sister and her career Navy husband. They always make it a point to thank anyone they see in military uniform for his/her service and sacrifice. I am somewhat shy by nature. But I am so thankful to these men and women who fight for our continued freedom that I stepped out of my comfort zone to verbalize my feelings and encourage those who cross my path. Abby, the first and second thank-yous I offered did not go well. The first gentleman I spoke to gave me a scornful look and proceeded to tell me I should be thankful for ALL military personnel — not just him — and especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. I felt 3 inches tall and very embarrassed, but I chalked it up to perhaps

Many different gut conditions, including irritation of the wall of the esophagus (the swallowing tube), stomach ulcers, or colon polyps or cancers are always a possibility.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have iron deficiency anemia. What could have caused it? Also, my doctor wants me to take a daily 325 mg iron sulfate supplement. Is that dangerous? The recommended daily dose of iron is much lower. DEAR READER: Most iron in the body is stored in red blood cells. If you don’t have enough iron, it can lead to a low red blood cell count. Doctors call this iron-deficiency anemia, and it’s more common in women. Most people get enough iron in their diet; it is plentiful in a variety of foods, including red meat, chicken liver, lentils, beans and spinach.

necessary. Conditions such as kidney stones or cancers of the kidney or bladder also can produce a slow leakage of blood into the urine and out of the body. It may be invisible, but examining the urine under a microscope can show the red blood cells. One of my patients developed iron deficiency anemia because she frequently donated blood. If you’re a frequent blood donor, stop donating blood for now. The best supplement to treat iron deficiency anemia is what your doctor recommended, iron sulfate. The dose recommended is fine — your body needs more than the usual daily dose. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is AskDoctorK.com.
