Serving Noble & LaGrange Counties

U.S. set for strike on Syria

GOOD MORNING United Way to serve free burgers KENDALLVILLE — United Way of Noble County will be giving away free hamburger meals Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on North Main Street in front of the KPC Media office building.

Farmland values up even after drought WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — The worst drought in nearly a quarter century didn’t stop Indiana farmland values from continuing to grow in 2012, a Purdue University study released Tuesday shows. High net farm income, low interest rates and high farmland demand with supply combined to increase land values upward by 14.7 percent to 19.1 percent, depending on productivity, according to the study. Farmland rental rates rose by about 10 percent. “While the 2012 Indiana crop suffered from the worst drought since 1988, the increase in farmland values did not bother to slow down,” Craig Dobbins, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist, said in a news release. The drought sent corn and soybean prices soaring to all-time highs, the study said. Combined with crop insurance indemnities, that meant better-than-expected farm incomes. High-productivity land values jumped by 19.1 percent to $9,177 per acre, the study said. Average-productivity land increased 17.1 percent to $7,446 per acre, and poor-productivity land was up by 14.7 percent to $5,750 per acre.

Steven Gibson, right, is escorted from the Noble County Courthouse Tuesday to begin serving his

40-year prison sentence for child molesting.

Man given 40 years BY BOB BRALEY

ALBION — A former businessman was sentenced Tuesday in Noble Superior Court I to serve 40 years in prison for molesting two boys inside the Kendallville business he co-owned. Steven Gibson, 54, of Kendallville pleaded guilty to child molesting, a Class A felony; child molesting, a Class C felony; and being a habitual offender, a sentence enhancer. The sentence also includes 20 years after Gibson’s release during which he must remain free of all offenses and have no contact with

his victims. In pleading guilty to the Class A felony offense, Gibson admitted that he molested a boy less than 14 years old between Oct. 1 and Nov. 14, 2012, in R & S Collectibles, the shop he then co-owned in the 100 block of West William Street in Kendallville. On the Class C felony charge, Gibson admitted he fondled a different boy less than 14 years old in the shop between May 1 and July 1, 2012. Gibson also admitted he was sentenced for four counts of burglary, all Class B felonies, on Dec. 3, 1980, and one count of theft, a Class D felony, on Feb. 28, 1997.

“I wish I could go back in time and change it so it didn’t happen,” Gibson said. “I know I must pay for what I’ve done. I’m so sorry that it ever happened.” Gibson said he also wishes he could fix what he’s done, adding, “By me going away, that’s the best I could do.” Noble County chief deputy prosecutor James Mowery said Gibson acknowledges he is a predator. “He quite literally set up a business to attract and lure in the exact age group that he, himself, said he is attracted to,” Mowery said.

Two facing drug charges BY BOB BRALEY

WOLF LAKE — Criminal charges have been filed involving a large marijuana-growing operation allegedly discovered Friday in Wolf Lake, Noble County Prosecutor Steven T. Clouse said Tuesday. Eldon R. Leitch, 58, and Darla Jo Perkins, 48, both of Wolf Lake, have been arrested. Each is charged with dealing marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, a Class C felony; possession of more than 30 grams of marijuana, a Class D felony; possession of marijuana with a prior conviction, a Class D felony; and maintaining

a common nuisance, a Class D felony. The charges are the result of a nearly two-month investigation by the Indiana Multi Perkins Agency Group Enforcement Drug Task Force. Officers obtained a search warrant Friday from Judge Michael Kramer of Noble Superior Court II. The Noble County Sheriff’s Special Operations Group assisted in serving the search warrant. Officers allegedly discovered

47 marijuana plants growing in the basement of a residence on South Wolf Lake Street in Wolf Lake, court documents said. They also allegedly found marijuana seeds and items related to the manufacture of marijuana. Leitch and Perkins were arrested Friday afternoon and have been held in the Noble County Jail since then, pending Tuesday’s filing of the formal charges. The IMAGE Drug Task Force is a multiagency unit serving Noble, DeKalb, Steuben, and LaGrange counties. This story was posted on at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration tried to bolster its case Tuesday for possible military action against Syria within days, with intelligence agencies preparing to release intercepted communications aimed at proving Bashar Assad perpetrated a large-scale chemical weapons attack on civilians. “There’s no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in Syria: the Syrian regime,” Vice President Joe Biden said. The U.S. and international partners were unlikely to undertake military action before Thursday. That’s when British Prime Minister David Cameron will convene an emergency meeting of Parliament where lawmakers are expected to vote on a motion clearing the way for a British response to the alleged chemical weapons attack. Obama and Cameron conferred on response plans Tuesday, their second known conversation in recent days. Administration officials argued that Assad’s actions posed a direct threat to U.S. national security, providing President Barack Obama with a potential legal justification for launching a strike without authorization from the United Nations or Congress. However, officials did not detail how the U.S. was directly threatened by an attack contained within Syria’s borders. Nor did they present concrete proof that Assad was responsible. “Allowing the use of chemical weapons on a significant scale to take place without a response would present a significant challenge to, threat to the United States’ national security,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Assad has denied using chemical weapons, calling the allegations “preposterous.” Obama is weighing a response focused narrowly on punishing Assad for violating international agreements that ban the use of chemical weapons, an act the president repeatedly has said would cross a “red line.” Officials said the goal was not to drive the Syrian leader from power or impact the broader trajectory of Syria’s bloody civil war, which is now in its third year. “The options we are considering are not about regime change,” Carney told reporters. According to U.S. officials, the most likely operation would be largely sea-based, with the strikes coming primarily from Navy warships in the Mediterranean Sea.

City officers taught self-defense tactics BY MATT GETTS

KENDALLVILLE — Three decades ago, Lee Shaykhet used his techniques to teach special forces soldiers in the former Soviet Union. This week, Shaykhet, 58, who came to America in 1979 and lives in suburban Detroit, has been passing on that knowledge to police officers from Noble County law enforcement agencies with daylong seminars on self-defense and defensive tactics at the Best Western Hotel Kendallville Inn. A literal hands-on instructor, Shaykhet demonstrated skills to

safely and quickly subdue a person who is a physical threat or must be taken into custody. There was not a lot of repetition to the maneuvers he used, and that’s precisely what makes the training so effective, local officers said. Most area police departments have a couple of officers who are highly skilled in hand-to-hand fighting. They practice their skills often, and are usually called upon to teach their fellow officers. Some of the skills they teach can take a lot of repetition to master, and they involve fine motor skills such as finding a

Albion’s fire insurance rating improves BY BOB BRALEY

ALBION — The town of Albion’s fire insurance rating has improved to the best possible with a volunteer fire department, the Albion Town Council learned Tuesday. The town’s Fire Suppression Rating Schedule issued by the Insurance Service Office has improved from 6 to 5, Albion Fire Chief Steve Bushong said. That’s the best possible rating for a town with a volunteer fire department. In the ISO Fire Suppression Rating Schedule, the lower the rating number, the better the rating.

Half the rating is based on the fire department, including its training, number of firefighters, and their response to emergencies and maintenance and testing of department equipment. Water supply is 40 percent of the rating, with the other 10 percent being how well the department receives and dispatches fire alarms. The new rating takes effect Nov. 1, town manager Beth Shellman said. The improved rating means that fire insurance premiums set after that date may have lower rates, so people should check with their insurance agents as policies are renewed.

Bushong and Shellman also complimented the Albion Water Department and Noble County E-911 dispatch for their roles in the improved rating. Also Tuesday, the council: • heard that a retirement celebration has been set for Friday for town employee Joe Halsey. Halsey is retiring Friday after 30 years as a town employee, Shellman said. A public open house will honor him from 1:30-3 p.m. • took no action after a discussion on whether to change the town’s policy on picking up debris and yard waste.

Megachurch linked to 21 measles cases DALLAS (AP) — A Texas megachurch linked to at least 21 cases of measles has been trying to contain the outbreak by hosting vaccination clinics, officials said. The outbreak started when a person who contracted measles overseas visited Eagle Mountain International Church in Newark, about 20 miles north of Fort Worth, Texas. Health department officials said those sickened ranged in age from 4-months to 44-years-old. All of the school-age children with measles were homeschooled. “If it finds a pocket of people who are unimmunized, and the majority of our cases are unimmunized so far, then if you are around a person with measles, you will get sick,” Russell Jones, chief epidemiologist for Tarrant County Public Health, said Monday. In Tarrant County, where the church is located, 11 of the 16 people with measles were not vaccinated while the others may have had at least one measles vaccination. None of the five people infected in nearby Denton County have been vaccinated. In a sermon posted online, senior pastor Terri Pearsons encouraged those who haven’t been vaccinated to do so, adding that the Old Testament is “full of precautionary measures.” “I would encourage you to do that. There’s absolutely

nothing wrong with doing that. Go do it. Go do it. Go do it. And go in faith,” said Pearsons, whose father is televangelist Kenneth Copeland. But she added, if “you’ve got this covered in your household by faith and it crosses your heart of faith then don’t go do it. “The main thing is stay in faith no matter what you do.” Measles is spread by coughing, sneezing and close personal contact with infected people; symptoms include a fever, cough, and a rash on the face. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children get two doses of the combined vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella, called the MMR. The first dose should be given when the child is 12 to 15 months old and the second at 4 to 6 years old. Vaccination opt-out rates nationwide have been creeping up since the mid-2000s, spurred in part by the belief that the vaccinations routinely given to infants could lead to autism, despite scientific evidence to the contrary. Pearsons’ father is a pioneer of the prosperity gospel, which holds that believers are destined to flourish spiritually, physically and financially — and share the wealth with others. He has built a vast ministry with a worldwide reach.

Consumer confidence in U.S. rises in August WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans’ confidence in the economy inched closer to a 5 ½-year high on growing optimism that hiring and wages could pick up in coming months. The Conference Board, a New York-based private research group, said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index rose to 81.5 in August. That’s up from a revised reading of 81 in July. And it’s just below the 82.1 reading in June, which was the highest since January 2008. Consumers’ income expectations, which fell earlier this year after a January tax hike, rebounded to the highest level in 2 ½ years, said Lynn Franco, director of the Conference Board’s economic indicators. Although consumers were more confident about the future, their assessment of the current economy

dipped slightly in August. “Consumer sentiment is holding steady, supported by advances in stocks, solid job creation, and a broad-based recovery in the housing market,” Jim Baird, chief investment officer at Plante Moran Financial Advisors, wrote in a research note. Consumers’ confidence in the economy is watched closely because their spending accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. After hitting bottom at 25.3 at the depths of the Great Recession in February 2009, the index has bounced back. But it has yet to get back to the 90 reading that signals a healthy economy. Americans’ confidence jumped in June on hopes that the job market was starting to turn around. The economy has created an average of 192,000 jobs a month this year, slightly ahead of last year’s pace.

at Auburn Auction Park. The auction company estimates its price at up to $1.6 million.

National TV adds shine to collector car auction BY DAVE KURTZ

AUBURN — With three days of national TV coverage, Auctions America is gearing up to put on a good show this weekend with its annual collector car auction. The NBC Sports Network will carry the action live on Thursday, Friday and Saturday as auctioneers take bids on some 1,200 collectible vehicles. TV coverage is scheduled for Thursday from 8 p.m. to midnight, Friday 8-10 p.m. and Saturday 12:30-4 p.m., according to the network’s website. “It adds a fun element to the sale. It makes it fun for people to be part of live TV. I think it will help grow Auburn — both spring and fall,” said Keith Koscak, auction manager for the giant sale at Auburn Auction Park. “It’s the best offering we’ve had in Auburn, both dollar-wise and in quality,” Koscak said about the lineup for this weekend’s sale. “One of the greatest things about this event is the diversity in the cars that are here. There’s something for everybody,” Koscak added.

Regional Roundup • Police sergeant gets 30 days in jail COLDWATER, Mich. — A White Pigeon, Mich., police sergeant was sentenced to 30 days in jail Monday after pleading guilty to impaired driving in a rollover crash, according to news reports. The Sturgis Journal reports the crash occurred April 12 when White Pigeon Police Chief Lynn Baker and White Pigeon Police Sgt. Bill Burgoyne were returning from a meeting in Lansing. Burgoyne rolled his wife’s vehicle in Branch County. When Michigan State Police arrived, both men were out of the car, which had damage to the top and right side. When questioned about the accident, both officers invoked their Fifth Amendment rights and declined to answer. An open container of an intoxicant was in the vehicle, along with an ice chest, authorities said.

Company adding 400 jobs in Indy INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An information technology consulting company says it will expand its Indianapolis headquarters and create up to 400 jobs over the next five years. The company doing business as Knowledge Services said Tuesday it will invest more than $840,000 to lease and equip additional space for software development and client support services at its headquarters on the city’s northeast side. It plans to hire people for software development, accounting, customer support, training and business development.

“We span over 100 years of automotive history, which is pretty cool.” Cars in the auction range from a 1907 Ford Runabout to a 2013 Dodge Challenger. A trio of classic Duesenbergs top the list of potential prices. A 1930 Duesenberg Model J Murphy Convertible Coupe leads the pack with an estimated top bid of up to $1.6 million. Its first owner was an heiress to the DuPont fortune. Auction America is staging its fourth auction in Auburn as it carries on a 42-year tradition of collector car sales during the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival. The company is hoping to continue the momentum from its first California sale four weeks ago, which saw $17.2 million in sales and an 84 percent sale rate. In addition to its Duesenbergs, the sale offers six Auburn automobiles, topped by a 1933 Auburn Boattail Speedster with a 12-cylinder engine. Bidding opens Wednesday with a session selling more than 400 lots from the memorabilia collection of Kirk F. White. It includes automotive fine art, racing memorabilia, vintage toys, early model trains, automotive literature; tether and model cars

and antiques. Thursday will be Armed Services Day, with free admission for active and retired military personnel and their families. The auction should reach its peak Saturday during the “Saturday Salon” segment of the sale. It includes more than 90 cars from southern Indiana collector Edward Ewing, with an emphasis on 1950s and ’60s models. Richard and Linda Kughn of Michigan, well known members of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club, will offer 20 cars from their collection. Not all of the attention will be focused on the bidding. Outside the auction arena, the event will offer helicopter rides, monster truck shows and rides and an action sports stunt show. Television celebrities scheduled to appear are Jessi Combs, star of Discovery’s “Overhaulin’” and “All Girls Garage,” Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kauffman of Discovery’s “Fast N’ Loud,” and Wayne Carini of Velocity’s “Chasing Classic Cars.” The event also features a giant swap meet staged by Carlisle Events and a car corral with hundreds of cars offered for sale by their owners.

Pension board change cuts retiree payouts INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana lawmakers grilled the head of the state’s pension system Tuesday on a decision to push future retirees into a market-based system that could almost halve the amount they earn from annuity plans. The Indiana Public Retirement System voted unanimously last month to change how much new retirees earn from their annuity savings accounts, or ASAs. The state currently allows retirees to return a lump-sum amount earned over their time working for the government to the pension fund, in return for guaranteed monthly payouts based on 7.5 percent of that lump sum. More than half of the roughly 425,000 retirees enrolled in Indiana’s major pension plans, the public employee retirement fund and the teacher’s retirement fund are enrolled in the annuity plan. But employees who retire after July 1, 2014, would have to look to market-based rates and a sharp drop in that guaranteed money. INPRS Executive Director Steve Russo told the panel the new payout would likely drop from 7.5 percent to a figure equaling the 10-year Treasury Note rates plus another 1.5 percentage points. The 10-year Treasury yield on Tuesday was listed at 2.75 percent, making the new payout likely 4.25 percent.

The pension board’s July vote followed a last-minute push by the Senate’s lead budget-writer, Luke Kenley, to end the annuity payouts over concerns the state could not afford them. But lawmakers, including House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, said the decision needed a public vetting and pulled it from the state budget. Democrats on the panel said they were caught off guard by the changes. “This is a big decision that affects a lot of people” said Sen. Karen Tallian, D-Portage. “Frankly, I had expected that this was something that would be vetted before PMOC, at one or two meetings, rather than have you just come back and say, ‘Well, this is what we did.’” But Russo pointed out the pension board’s meetings are open to the public and they have been discussing the change for more than a year. “I have no doubt in my mind there was complete and utter transparency,” he said. Russo said the board was concerned about the long-term viability of paying out 7.5 percent on the annuity plans when the state’s pension funds are only expected to earn 6.75 percent interest. However, according to the General Assembly’s legislative analysts, they are 100-percent funded.

Village Post Office opens in LaOtto Traditional site to remain in full service BY BOB BRALEY PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

Navy veteran James Stull of Albion, center, accepts a winning hot-air balloon ride certificate from RE/MAX Results office staff in Wolcottville.

Navy veteran wins hot-air balloon ride WOLCOTTVILLE — Retired military serviceman James Stull of Albion recently won a hot-air balloon ride courtesy of RE/ MAX Results “Thank You For Your Service Flight” drawing. Stull served in the U.S. Navy from 1965-68 and is a member of American Legion Post 246 in Albion and Francis Vinyard VFW Post 2749 in Kendallville, where his winning ticket was drawn. He will take his flight from the Kendallville Airport Friday at 7 p.m.,

weather permitting. RE/MAX Results in Wolcottville held the drawing in mid-July as a way to recognize the commitment and sacrifices made by local military men and women. “We were overwhelmed by the response and the number of registrations collected through this drive,” said Lori Abbott, RE/MAX Results office administrator. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the honest recognition given to our local military members.”

LAOTTO — LaOtto now has both a post office and another business providing some post office services. LaOtto Marathon’s convenience store, part of All-American Stores, became the 51st Village Post Office in what the U.S. Postal Service calls its Greater Indiana Area Tuesday morning. But the regular post office remains open for business. “It’s going to remain open. This is just an enhancement,” said Lisa Curlin, the New Haven postmaster, who oversees Village Post Offices in northeast Indiana. Curlin, Garrett Postmaster Gery Schneider and Alice Moore, acting operations and programs specialist for the Postal Service, were on hand for an opening celebration for the newest Village Post Office. The event included a cutting a ribbon and a

cake. The cake was shared with customers in the store on S.R. 205 at S.R. 3 at the time of the celebration. The Village Post Office will have limited services, Curlin said. It will sell stamps and Priority Mail flat rate mailers, and it has a mailbox outside for dropping off ready-to-go

items. The existing post office on Old State Road 3, south of S.R. 205, continues to provide those and other services unique in town to it, including post office boxes, picking up packages and other mailing options. One advantage to the Village Post Office is that

it’s open longer, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., said Adam Dager, All-American Stores owner. The two post office locations in town actually are in different counties. The traditional post office is in Noble County, while the Village Post Office is in the town’s commercial park in DeKalb County.

Board of Public Works approves closing streets for local events BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — Two Sept. 21 events using public facilities and closing city streets were approved by the Board of Public Works Tuesday morning. Board members granted Advancing Regional Talents Inc.’s request to close West Mitchell Street between Main and Orchard streets from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, for an arts festival with beer and wine sales in the small parking lot

behind Sozo Art Studio, 113 S. Main St. Peggy Tassler, Advancing Regional Talents president and Sozo Art Studio owner, said the beer and wine sales and consumption area will be roped off with two entrances and exits. Security will be provided. A stage facing west will be set up at the intersection of Main and Mitchell streets for band performances. Artists will be selling their artwork, with tents and tables for appetizers from local

Kendallville • restaurants. Restroom facilities will be provided, and Advancing Regional Talents volunteers will clean up the area. Admission will cost $5 per person and $10 for a family. Advancing Regional Talents is seeking a temporary permit from the state excise office for beer and wine sales, according to Tassler. The board also granted the East Noble Band Boosters

permission to close Knight Drive, Garden Street, Iddings Street, Lisle Street and Freeman Street near East Noble High School on Saturday, Sept. 21, from noon to 10 p.m. for the 36th annual East Noble Marching Band Invitational. Event chairwoman Laura Nowels told board members 18 to 20 bands are expected including Homestead, Carroll and Snider, three of the biggest bands in the area. She requested more streets be temporarily closed to

accommodate more buses. In other business, the board: • granted Trinity Church United Methodist and St. John Lutheran Church permission to close Rush Street between State and Summit streets on Sept. 15 from 4-8 p.m. for their annual block party. • granted the owners of Paul’s Pub, 213 S. Main St., permission to hang a 3-by-4-foot illuminated sign above the awning of the business. The non-flashing sign will extend over the sidewalk.

SYRIA: Four destroyers poised in Mediterranean FROM PAGE A1

monitor the area and protect the ships, but Syria’s robust air defense system makes air strikes more difficult and risky. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said military forces stand ready to strike Syria immediately if the commander in chief gives the order. The Navy has four destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean within range of targets inside Syria and also has warplanes in the region. “We are ready to go,� Hagel said during a television interview while traveling in Asia. Ahead of any strike, the U.S. also plans to release additional intelligence it

says will directly link Assad to the Aug. 21 attack in the Damascus suburbs. Syrian activists say hundreds of people were killed in the attack. A U.S. official said the intelligence report is expected to include “signals intelligence� — information gathered from intercepted communications. All of the officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal deliberations. Even before releasing that information, U.S. officials said they had very little doubt that Assad was culpable in the attack based on witness reports, information on the number

The sentence enhancer was applied to the sentence for the Class C felony offense. The penalty for that offense without the enhancer would have been six years in prison, but it was increased to 16 years with the enhancement. Of that, 10 years were ordered to be served and six years suspended. As per the agreement, Kirsch ordered the sentences to be served back-to-back.

there, I hope, he will die.� “You are the type of individual who, unfortunately, has to be removed from society for a significant period of time,� Noble Superior Court I Judge Robert Kirsch said. “I hope these young men recover with time.� Following the terms of a plea agreement, Kirsch sentenced Gibson to 44 years in prison, with 30 years to be served and 14 years suspended for the Class A felony crime. Ten years of the suspended sentence will be on probation, and the rest will be subject to remaining offense-free. Ten years is the maximum length of probation under Indiana law.

Two boys were lured and victimized by Gibson as described in the criminal charges, but Mowery said he believes there are more victims. Mowery said he has had met the victims, adding, “It’s striking the damage, the absolute destruction that this has done to these families.� With credit for good behavior, Gibson will be eligible for release from prison in 20 years, Mowery said. There will be another 20 years during which, if he reoffends, he can be sent back to prison for another 20 years. If that happens, Mowery said Gibson should be sent there, adding, “And

Other administration officials echoed Biden’s comments, which marked a subtle shift in the administration’s rhetoric on who bears responsibility for the attack. Earlier in the week officials would say only that there was “very little doubt� Assad was responsible. Obama, Biden and other senior administration officials have spent much of the week seeking to rally international support for an aggressive response to the chemical weapons attack.

precise pressure point in the heat of battle, according to Kendallville Police Department Detective Lance Waters. Waters gave an example from his experience as a firearms instructor. To get a weapon ready to fire, an officer may have to flip a small switch with his thumb, a fine-motor skill. The other option is to use gross-motor skills to pull back the slide on the handgun, completing the same task. Waters said when people are put under stress, one of the physiological effects is a

loss of fine-motor skills, which is why he teaches the gross-motor skill technique. “I can use my whole hand versus trying to find that little button with my thumbs under stress,� Waters said. In April, Waters and Noble County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Brian Walker attended the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association’s annual conference in Chicago. While at the training, both officers took notice of Shaykhet’s training philosophy. “The techniques he uses

are very, very simple,� Waters said. “They are gross-motor skills.� “Keep it simple,� Shaykhet said. “When you’re under stress, you forget. Simplicity, in my book, is a big thing. You want to do it without extensive thinking.� Noble County Sheriff’s Department Sheriff Doug Harp took part in Monday’s session, and he left a fan of the techniques used. “It makes a lot of sense,� Harp said. “We’re looking at the possibility of having him do training with the entire staff and deputies.�

Woman to lead Air Force Academy AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — The first woman to lead the Air Force Academy says she faced resistance and sexual harassment in her career, but competence and confidence helped her push through the ranks to one of the top jobs in the service. Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson said in an interview Tuesday she isn’t surprised that 32 years passed

between her graduation from the academy in 1981 — in the second class to include women — and her appointment as its first female superintendent. “It takes 32 years to make a lieutenant general,� she said referring to the experience and training it takes to reach the three-star rank required for the superintendent’s job. She became superin-

tendent on Aug. 12 at a time the military is under increasing pressure from Congress and the president to prevent sexual assaults. The Pentagon estimated in May that up to 26,000 military members may have been sexually assaulted last year. A series of sexual assault scandals made clear how serious the problem is, including allegations of misconduct against officers.

Retro look Colts hoping basic style brings Super Bowl title INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis is going retro. After making a nine-game improvement and reaching the playoffs with rookie quarterback Andrew Luck in charge, new offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has installed a power-running game with double-tight end formations, and coach Chuck Pagano got the pieces he wanted to make Indy’s 3-4 defense look more like the defense he had in Baltimore. The Ravens won last year’s Super Bowl this way, and, well, Pagano figures he can replicate that success in Indy this year. With nearly three dozen new faces at training camp, the message seemed to resonate. “There’s nobody in there that’s relaxing,” Pagano said. “I think everybody, because of the acquisitions, because of the free agents, because of the draft, those types of things, our roster

is in a much better place than it was at any time last year.” So far, it’s worked. The Colts revamped defense hasn’t given up a touchdown in two games, and the injury-depleted offense is still trying to get the ground game in sync. What else has changed in Indy? Here’s five things to know about the Colts: DIFFERENT DEFENSE: After more than a decade of playing in the shadows of the Colts’ high-powered offense, Indianapolis’ defense is playing with the kind of swagger normally reserved for the best in the NFL. Don’t believe it? Ask Reggie Wayne, who was mocked by Cory Redding and Robert Mathis when a practice catch was ruled out of bounds.

ANGOLA — With the score deadlocked at 1-1 and less the four minutes remaining, Angola’s girls varsity soccer team erupted for two scores to claim a 3-1 victory in the Northeast Corner Conference opener for both teams. “We have a fairly young team,” explained Angola coach Jen Sharkey. “We’re just coming together as a team and are taking it upon ourselves to make this a successful season.” The Hornets struck first in the contest, with Savanna Burkhardt connecting for the first of two

goals. Late in the opening half Benni Murillo would even the score with a West Noble goal. The contest was still tied at 1-all when Angola’s Amanda Davis lines up for a corner kick. The ball went to teammate Nicole Silverhart, who got off two shots. Burkhardt got the rebound on the second miss and buried the ball in the back of the net to put Angola up 2-1. Not finished, the Hornets scored again with 1:36 left when Silverhart broke free up the middle and put a ball past the Charger keeper. “We knew that West Noble was a hard second half team,” Sharkey said. “We knew we had to match their intensity.” SEE SOCCER, PAGE B2


Brennan Cochran scored four goals for DeKalb in a 7-2 win over Lakeland on Tuesday.

NEW YORK (AP) — At this point in his career, Roger Federer recognizes the importance of a little extra work. That’s why the owner of a record 17 Grand Slam titles, and the man who spent more weeks ranked No. 1 than any other, was out there on a U.S. Open practice court late Tuesday afternoon, putting in some training time shortly after finishing off a 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 victory over 62nd-ranked Grega Zemlja of Slovenia in the first round. At 32, at his lowest ranking, No. 7, in more than a decade, coming off a stunningly early exit at the previous major tournament — one of a series of newsworthy losses lately — Federer is OK with making some concessions. He insists his passion for tennis is still there. “I’m in a good spot right now,” Federer said. “I want to enjoy it as long as it lasts.” He made it sound, though, as if it isn’t as easy to enjoy things the way his results have been going. Federer entered Tuesday 32-11, a .744 winning percentage that doesn’t sound too bad, until you consider his career mark at the start of this season was .816, and he’s had years where he went 81-4 (.953). and 92-5 (.948). He’s only won one tournament in 2013, which would be great for some guys, but Federer topped 10 titles three times, and hasn’t won fewer than three in any season since 2001. “Clearly, when you win everything, it’s fun.

The late model sportsman cars went back to the pits and two other features were held before returning for to the track. Ron Maynard won the late model sportsman main. Kugler was second, followed by Asztalos, Cassten Everidge and Ellert to round out the top five. Zach Henderson was fast qualifier for the Superior Auto Modifieds. The Glenbrook Hyundai

The Lakers showed their potential, battling back from a 14-4 deficit to pull ahead 21-18 in Game 2 before Wawasee rallied back for the win. “I think that working that hard to come back when being down by 10 is a great sign for this team,” stated Lakeland coach Brent Miller. “In years past, we would have not fought as hard to stay in matches. Now we need to close out the set and not allow teams to dictate the pace of the

game.” Leading the way for the Lakers were Becca Wooster with seven kills. Ashtin Kaminer added four kills and led the team with four aces. Madison Campbell added 10 digs and Nicole McKibben had 15 set assists. The Lakers (2-5) play at Hamilton on Thursday.

Niese throws 3-hitter, drives in 3, Mets top Phils NEW YORK (AP) — Jonathon Niese pitched a shutout. He lined a game-breaking double. He worked out a key walk. And he ran through a stop sign to score the first run. Now that truly is a complete game. Niese threw a three-hitter and drove in three runs as the New York Mets put aside a devastating injury and a surprising trade, beating the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 Tuesday night to end a five-game losing streak. “It was an overall great win for us,” Niese said. Thanks to a great overall effort by him. “One-man show by Niese,” Phillies interim manager Ryne Sandberg said. “Pretty stress-free.” Niese struck out five and walked one in his second career shutout in 112 major league starts. The Mets took advantage of several poor throws to win several hours after trading veterans Marlon Byrd and John Buck to Pittsburgh. It was Byrd T-shirt giveaway night at Citi

Field. Minus the team’s RBIs leader, Niese (6-6) handled matters at the plate and on the mound. Good timing, considering ace Matt Harvey was diagnosed this week with a partial tear in his elbow. “They want to pick each other up,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. Niese retired 17 straight batters and scored the first run by running through third base coach Tim Teufel’s late stop sign. “I had my mind made up,” Niese said. Niese improved to 3-0 in four starts since coming off the disabled list because of a partially torn rotator cuff. “It’s kind of rewarding to know I’m 100 percent now,” he said. After Michael Young led off the second inning with a single, the left-hander didn’t permit another runner until Young doubled to begin the eighth. Niese’s other shutout came in 2010. He popped his left hand into his mitt after Chase Utley flied out to finish this one on his 113th pitch.

Roger Federer, of Switzerland, returns a shot to Grega Zemlja, of Slovenia, during the first round of the 2013 U.S. Open tennis tournament Tuesday.

game more. You just like winning, being on the front page, lifting trophies, doing comfortable press conferences. It’s nice. But that doesn’t mean you really, actually love it, love it,” said Federer, whose streak of 36 consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinals ended with a second-round defeat at Wimbledon against an opponent ranked 116th. “That maybe shines through maybe more in times when you don’t play that well. For me, I knew it — winning or losing, practice court or match court — that I love it.” As Federer took the first step toward a possible quarterfinal meeting with nemesis Rafael Nadal, No. 5 Tomas Berdych and No. 10 Milos Raonic also picked up straight-set victories. On a day that American men went 5-1, led by No. 13

John Isner and No. 26 Sam Querrey, a handful of seeded men made quick departures. No. 14 Jerzy Janowicz of Poland, a semifinalist at Wimbledon last month, was the most surprising to go, although he was treated by a trainer for a painful back during a 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 loss to 247th-ranked qualifier Maximo Gonzalez of Argentina. “It was like someone puts a knife through your lower back,” Janowicz said. Janowicz is a volatile character, and that was on full display Tuesday. He pounded two balls in anger into the stands. He swatted one serve underhand. He chucked his racket. He argued with the chair umpire. Joining him on the way out were No. 15 Nicolas Almagro, No. 25 Grigor Dimitrov and No. 28 Juan Monaco.

COLTS: GM Grigson invested plenty to protect franchise star Andrew Luck FROM PAGE B1

spin moves in practice. Ask the Giants, who went 0 for 4 in the red zone and endured six sacks in the second preseason game. Or ask Cleveland, which had only four first downs and ran only three plays — one of those a punt — in Indy territory before the starters left early in the third quarter. If first impressions mean anything, this will not be the same old Colts. SOPHOMORE SENSATIONS: Last season, Luck turned in one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history. Yes, he’s playing for his second offensive coordinator in two seasons, but Luck is no ordinary quarterback and this is no ordinary transition. Hamilton has essentially installed the same

offense he and Luck used at Stanford, and the shorter passing game should help Luck reduce the interceptions, improve his completion percentage and lower the number of hits he took a year ago. Keep an eye on secondyear receiver T.Y. Hilton, who emerged as a genuine playmaker at training camp and should play an even larger role in this offense than he did as a rookie. LINING UP: Indy’s top offseason priority was protecting Luck. General manager Ryan Grigson spent a lot of money on right tackle Gosder Cherilus and left guard Donald Thomas, who were signed in free agency. Grigson also drafted Hugh Thornton and Khaled Holmes in April. Will all these moves will work? Thornton and Holmes

have missed a lot of practice because of sprained right ankles. Cherilus and Thomas have been solid, but Colts quarterbacks have still been under duress throughout the preseason. Clearly, as Thomas recently said, the line is a work in progress. DEPTH CHARGE: Grigson also wanted to spend the offseason adding depth. In some places, such as the secondary with additions such as Greg Toler and LaRon Landry, the Colts are clearly improved. In other places, not so much. Indy is still looking for a solid option behind Wayne and Hilton at receiver. Darrius Heyward-Bey has sometimes struggled to hold onto balls. LaVon Brazill is suspended for the first four games and Grigson is still

making moves to push the other Colts’ receivers. Indy’s top two tight ends, Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener, have struggled with injuries over the last couple of weeks, too, but should be ready for the Sept. 8 opener against Oakland. The Colts are also looking for another pass rusher to help Mathis. ON SCHEDULE: After going 2-14 and finishing with the worst record in the NFL in 2011, the Colts were the beneficiary of one of the league’s easier schedules. This year, the trendy thought is that a tougher schedule will damage Indy’s playoff hopes. Not so fast. First, these Colts are more experienced and more talented than they were a year ago. Second, they still play in the AFC South.


SPORTS BRIEFS • Colts complete 1st set of cuts INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts reached the league’s 75-man roster limit Tuesday by putting receiver Nathan Palmer on waivers, rookie safety John Boyett on the non-football injury list and receiving an exemption for linebacker Josh McNary. Palmer was expected to miss four to six weeks with a sprained MCL and will go on Indy’s injured reserve list if he clears waivers. McNary spent the past two seasons fulfilling his service commitment to the Army after graduating from West Point. Teams can get exemptions for military players who report after June 1 and do not play in preseason games. The exemption expires this weekend when rosters are trimmed to 53. Boyett is recovering from injuries to both knees that limited him to one game at Oregon last season.

Aggies mum about Manziel COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Seventh-ranked Texas A&M head into Saturday’s home opener against Rice with questions still swirling about whether Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel will play against the Owls. The NCAA is investigating whether he was paid for his autograph, a potential violation of amateurism rules that could threaten his eligibility. It was the only thing anyone really wanted to talk about on Tuesday when the Aggies addressed the media. The topic, however, was off limits. Athletic director Eric Hyman said Monday night that he’d instructed everyone in the program not to talk about Manziel. And if that wasn’t clear enough, a member of the sports information department slowly and sternly read the statement, not once, but twice during the session. Reporters asked anyway, and coach Kevin Sumlin did what Hyman asked. “We’re not discussing that,” he said. “I thought we went over that right from the beginning.” He later added that they have a plan for any number of situations that could happen with their players and team, and that they plan for the possible absence of players every week. ESPN, citing an anonymous source, reported that Manziel met with NCAA investigators over the weekend. CBSSports. com, also citing anonymous sources, reported that Manziel told the investigators he didn’t take money for his autograph. While Sumlin wouldn’t discuss Manziel’s availability for Week 1, he had no problem talking about whether football has helped the quarterback deal with everything going on off the field. “I know he likes to play football,” Sumlin said. “I think the structure that he has had since Aug. 4 has been nothing but helpful.” If Manziel doesn’t play against the Owls, the Aggies will use either junior Matt Joeckel or freshman Kenny Hill. Joeckel is more of a pocket passer and Hill is a dual-threat quarterback. Joeckel has thrown just 11 passes in his college career. Hill, who starred at Texas high school powerhouse Southlake Carroll, threw for 2,291 yards and 20 TDs and ran for 905 yards and 22 more scores as a senior last season.

Pirates acquire Byrd from Mets PITTSBURGH (AP) — A day after falling out of first place, the Pittsburgh Pirates acquired outfielder Marlon Byrd and catcher John Buck from the New York Mets on Tuesday, hoping the veterans can help the franchise to its first playoff berth in 21 years. The Pirates began the day a half-game behind St. Louis in the National League Central after the Cardinals took sole possession of first place Monday night with an 8-5 win over Cincinnati. The Pirates were idle. The Pirates sent the Mets minor league infielder Dilson Herrera and a player to be named later in exchange for Byrd, Buck and cash considerations. Pittsburgh had claimed Byrd off waivers and were able to work out the four-player deal with New York. “It’s pretty neat to see us make a move like this,” Pirates second baseman Neil Walker said. “We didn’t expect something to happen this late. You usually figure it is something that would happen at the (July 31 non-waiver) trade deadline. “But these are established guys who can help us get to where we want to go.” Byrd, 35, is hitting .285 with 21 home runs and 71 RBIs this season, including .345 with seven homers against left-handers, and will give Pittsburgh needed depth in the outfield while leadoff hitter Starling Marte recovers from a sprained right hand. Buck, 33, is batting .215 with 15 home runs and 60 RBIs. Since the beginning of the 2010 season, Buck’s 63 home runs as a catcher rank third in the majors. He will back up Russell Martin.

No charges filed vs. Pippen LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen won’t face any criminal charges after a fight with an autograph seeker outside a Malibu sushi restaurant earlier this summer, prosecutors said Tuesday. Prosecutors said there was insufficient evidence against Pippen, who was dining with his family June 24 when he was approached by Camran Shafighi inside Nobu restaurant, a celebrity hangout on the beach in Malibu. They said Shafighi had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit for driving and exaggerated injuries that were deemed minor.







A fight in the alley Yes, typing for eight hours a day is a thrilling occupation. Every once in a while, just to calm down after work, I ride with a police officer on third shift. One such night recently, the officer I was riding with was called to break up a fight in the alley behind a bar in one of northeastern Indiana’s finer communities. When the officer and I pulled up, there was an enormous blob of a gentleman putting a serious thumping on a thin gray-haired man with a goatee. Once the officer had the two men separated, he knelt down to tend to the thin man, leaving me alone to talk to the MATT blob. The blob was huffing and GETTS puffing. He weighed maybe 800 pounds. He wore a suit that looked like he had slept in it the night before, then did a 10-hour day at a rendering plant before passing out in his own vomit. He stunk of drink and stale cigarettes. Even in the dimly lit alley, he looked like a coronary waiting to happen. He hitched up his pants when he saw me staring at him. “Don’t you know who you’re looking at?” he asked. I shrugged. Everyone has a story, but the kind of person fighting in an alley at 3 a.m. rarely has one rational enough to listen to. He bent over, and at first I thought he was going to lose whatever supper he’d managed between drinks. Instead, he picked up a cigarette butt and fished a lighter from his pocket. He lit what was left of the smoke. “I’m government,” he said gruffly. “And if you don’t watch it, you’ll be next.” He tossed his head in the direction of the thin man still prone on the ground five yards away. “Government?” He nodded, the cherry on the cigarette showing his gray face in a weird glow. “Let me guess,” I said. “Federal?” He blew out a plume of smoke. “Federal.” “Sorry, but you are disgusting,” I said. “Tell me about it,” the man shrugged. “I haven’t had a real cleansing in a couple hundred years. I get bigger and bigger and bigger. Kind of hard to fight the momentum, you know?” “Pathetic,” I answered. He held up the hand with the lit cigarette. “But necessary. I used to be the guy everybody turned to. You should have seen me at my fighting weight. There wasn’t anything I couldn’t do. I was something.” “Then what happened to you?” The man shrugged, then leaned against a wall that had seen more urine than paint of late. “Too many fights. Too much responsibility.” “So you turned to excess?” “I didn’t ask to take care of everything. One day, there it all was. I had to put on weight so I’d have the energy to take it all on.” The night closed around him some, and he flicked the cigarette onto the ground. It burst into a small shower of sparks before dying out. “Mind if I ask what brings you to this neck of the woods?” “Hiding out,” he said, bending over for another cigarette butt. “The politicians are thinking of another shutdown, cutting off my funding entirely in early October.” “Maybe they should,” I suggested. “That’s why I’m hiding out,” he said, straightening back up with a large groan and a belch. “Half the politicians want me to cut my weight, the other other half want to keep piling it on. And even the half that want me to cut back want to cut from different areas. I’m getting pulled in about a billion different directions. “And everybody blames me. Like I created this mess myself. Hideous as I am, I am their creation.” He belched again, lighting another used cigarette butt with shaky fingers. “Maybe I get the hiding out part, but why are you in this alley?” “I’m not welcome in any church,” he said wryly. “Or maybe it’s the other way around. What would you do if you had the weight of a country on your shoulders and not enough strength to carry it anymore? You would want to tie one on, too.” “But fighting?” The blob shook his enormous head. “That’s Uncle Sam. Every night, he reminds me of what I’m supposed to be. And every night he picks and picks and picks at me until I can’t take it any more.” “Why not change?” Government straightened his shoulders, leaning back against the wall again. “Nobody wants to take a real look at me. It’s too hard a fix.” “Pathetic,” I said again. “Tell me about it,” he said. “You got any spare change on you? I’m all tapped out and I’m almost sober.”

My chicken, myself and Rep. King’s amendment WASHINGTON — In one of the early episodes of “Portlandia,” the satirical show that makes fun of all things Portland, Ore., a couple dining out interviews the waitress about their potential chicken dinner. Specifically, they want to know details of the chicken’s diet (sheep’s milk, soy and hazelnuts), his free-roaming privileges and roaming area (four acres), whether he had friends and was a happy chicken, and so on. Their server answers patiently, even producing Colin’s papers. Colin, that is, the chicken. So goes the joke on people who get a tad carried away about the quality of life of the animals whose slaughter they ultimately condone and whose flesh they consume. It was, if you’ll pardon the expression, delicious. But the reality side of the factory farm story isn’t so tasty. Humane treatment of animals, whether being bred as pets or for display in grocery stores, is a work in progress, the relatively few successes of which are meager testament to our own humanity. Inasmuch as the way people treat animals reveals their character, the way we mass produce animals for human consumption reveals much about our nation’s character. That character is being tested even now on Capitol Hill. While most eyes this summer have been riveted by human bloodshed from Syria to Egypt, a handful of animal rights advocates has been glued to the farm bill, which, you’ll recall, became controversial when House Republicans severed a food stamp provision that customarily was attached. What may have escaped much notice, however, is an amendment by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, that would pre-empt state and local laws governing food production and other animal-related industries, including puppy mills, confinement of farm animals, animal fighting, shark finning, and the sale of meat from horses, dogs and cats.

Despite strong opposition from animal rights groups as well as more than 200 fellow House and Senate members, King has invoked the Commerce Clause to defend his amendment. He avers that having so many different laws in different places violates the federal government’s authority to regulate interstate commerce. One of the problems, as he sees it, is that states such as California that have strong laws about how chickens must be raised (enough room in a cage to stand KATHLEEN and spread their wings) can impose their standards on PARKER other states that sell their egg products in California. “The impact of their large market would compel producers in every other state to invest billions to meet the California standard of ‘means of production.’” King, whose legislative history regarding animal welfare is poster material for cruelty (and dunder-headedness) — he thinks dogfighting is fine and children ought to be able to watch — also promises that his amendment will put an end to “radical organizations” such as the Humane Society of the United States and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA.) I probably should confess that I love anything with a heartbeat and there is no humane treatment I could imagine opposing. Do I think we should play classical music for cows as they amble to the slaughter? Oh, why not, if it makes them less anxious? More to the point, is making a hen’s cage a little larger really so cost-prohibitive that we can’t manage to make a miserable life a tiny bit less miserable? Is someone’s taste for foie gras so worthy of protection that we condone force-feeding cruelly confined ducks until their livers bloat and

• become diseased? The list of humans’ cruelty to animals is too long and too horrible for this space. The fact that some states aim to protect animals seems to me cause for celebration rather than federal opposition. Here’s a thought: Instead of trying to undo what some have done in the spirit of a more humane society, why not encourage other states to become part of the movement? King, perhaps, represents a certain contingent that holds to a biblical view that animals don’t deserve the same consideration as humans. As King said in his defense of dogfighting, there’s something wrong when we outlaw dogfights but allow people to fight. The obvious difference is that people who step into the ring have a choice in the matter — and state-sanctioned torture of animals would seem to undermine the notion that humans are of greater value to the Divine. The fate of King’s amendment will be determined when Congress reconvenes in September. For now, dozens of animal rights organizations, as well as the head of the National Conference of State Legislators, are lobbying hard to kill it. Humanely, of course.

Examining the state of the state fair It used to be that if your body was tattooed from head to toe, you wore large hoop earrings and 50 necklaces, sported a beard and rode a unicycle, the only job you could get was in a circus sideshow, or running a midway ride for a traveling carnival. Now, you can be a basketball player, a famous chef, a star in a reality show, or you could just be an admission-paying visitor to the state fair — without being one of the attractions. Of course, the visitors to the state fair are, at least for me, the big attractions. That, and rabbits the size of small cars, cows the size of big cars and chickens that look as if they are wearing hats in a royal wedding. But still, the animals come in a distant second to the people. What kind of crazy, nutty, fruitcake-batty person do you have to be to eat a deep-fat fried Oreo? Oh yeah — me. It’s the state fair. You gotta do it. At first, my goal this year was to spend the day only eating food that came on a stick. But except for the traditional

corn dog and the ever-popular chocolate-covered frozen banana, the on-a-stick pickings were slim. I’m nothing if not adaptable, and quickly changed my goal to only eating things that were deep-fat fried. Now, you don’t have to go to the fair to eat JIM state deep-fat fried French MULLEN food. fries and fried chicken are available almost everywhere, as are blooming onions and fried clams. But until someone opens a chain of franchises called “International House of Funnel Cakes” or “Fried Twinkie Hut,” you pretty much have to go to a state or county fair to scratch that particular itch. Sure, there are always new culinary innovations, many including bacon — chicken-fried bacon, roasted bacon-wrapped corn, chocolate-covered bacon. But the new height of fryolator art

is more than simply selecting a foodstuff, dipping it in batter, tossing it into a wire basket and lowering it to its greasy death. Like a pickle or a BLT, it is a combination of unlikely things. I am talking about a peanut butter, bacon and banana bomb. The vendor’s menu featured a long list of the usual suspects for frying: Oreos, Twinkies, Snickers bars. But at the bottom it said, “Peanut butter, bacon and banana.” “Is that a sandwich?” I asked. “No,” said a young man holding a fistful of five-dollar bills. It’s peanut butter, bacon and banana.” It was hard to picture what I would actually be getting for my money, but there was a long line behind me and a few insulting stage whispers about me holding things up. “I’ll take one.” The cashier takes my bill and yells over his shoulder to the cook, “One Dead Elvis!” Seconds later I was handed a softball-sized blob of hot, fried goodness on a paper plate. The goodness was not the banana. A deep-fat fried banana tastes

like baby food. The peanut butter was problematic, too. Hot peanut butter hits the relatively cool roof of your mouth and solidifies into a protective shell. It takes the work of a finger, a mirror and a spork to remove it. I probably should have used my own finger, but I do want to thank the stranger who finally pulled it out. The bacon, however, was sublime. A poem of pork, a song of swine, a melody of meat. Perfect with cheesy fries and a non-vintage red wine slurpy. Of course, nothing lasts forever. The hottest thing in novelty food right now is the cronut — the head-on collision of a croissant and a donut — and it has people standing in block-long lines in the few big cities that have it. Next year, you can bet it will be the hot new thing on the carnival, county and state fair circuit. Can the Dead Elvis stand up to the challenge?

Briefs • Facebook claims government sought data on 38K users WASHINGTON (AP) — Government agents in 74 countries demanded information on about 38,000 Facebook users in the first half of this year, with about half the orders coming from authorities in the United States, the company said Tuesday. The social-networking giant is the latest technology company to release figures on how often governments seek information about its customers. Microsoft and Google have done the same. As with the other companies, it’s hard to discern much from Facebook’s data, besides the fact that, as users around the globe flocked to the world’s largest social network, police and intelligence agencies followed.

Caroline Kennedy to join March on Washington rally WASHINGTON (AP) — Caroline Kennedy is joining the lineup of speakers commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial. Organizers say Kennedy, the daughter of President John F. Kennedy, will speak Wednesday, along with Lynda Johnson Robb, the daughter of President Lyndon Johnson. Other speakers include Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, Jamie Foxx, President Barack Obama and former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. Performers will include singers BeBe Winans, LeAnn Rimes and the girl group Identity4Pop, among others.

Mounting tensions with Syria sink stocks NEW YORK (AP) — Fears of an escalating conflict in Syria rippled across financial markets on Tuesday, sinking stocks, lifting gold and pushing the price of oil to the highest in a year and a half. A day after Secretary of State John Kerry said there was “undeniable” evidence of a large-scale chemical attack in Syria, tensions between the U.S. and the regime of Bashar Assad mounted. Defense Secretary Chuck Hegel said the U.S. military was ready to strike if President Barrack Obama gave the order. Syria’s foreign minister said his country would defend itself. The threats raised worries on Wall Street that the U.S. was more likely to attack Syria.

People • Gomez: Don’t ask what Swift said at VMAs LOS ANGELES (AP) — Did Taylor Swift really utter an expletive to Selena Gomez when One Direction and former love interest Harry Styles took the stage for the MTV Video Music Awards? Don’t ask Selena Gomez Gomez. Swift’s seemingly foul-mouthed reaction shot lit up social networks and became an instant GIF. But Gomez reprimanded a reporter who asked what Swift said at the premiere of Gomez’s new film, “Getaway,” on Monday. “Don’t try that with me,” Gomez told him. The young star later said that she’s protective of her friends. “I think girls need to be more supportive of each other. I definitely agree with that. I’m all about that,” she said. “Taylor has been one of those girls. We have been friends for five years. She is very strong. She doesn’t care what people think and she inspires me.”


Progress made against Yosemite-area fire TUOLUMNE CITY, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters gained some ground Tuesday against the huge wildfire burning forest lands in the western Sierra Nevada, including parts of Yosemite National Park. The 11-day-old blaze expanded to about 280 square miles, partly due to back burning by crews, but containment jumped to 20 percent. The portion of the fire in Yosemite doubled to about 64 square miles but remained in backcountry, and the main attractions in the nearly 1,200-squaremile park remained open. “The next couple of days are really going to be key for us,” said California fire spokesman Daniel Berlant. “If the weather cooperates, and we see an increase in containment, we could really turn a corner on this stubborn fire.” The fire — now the seventh-largest California wildfire in records dating to 1932 — was threatening about 4,500 structures and has destroyed at least 23. Thousands of firefighters have arrived since the fire erupted Aug. 17 west of Yosemite in the Stanislaus National Forest, where the slopes of the Sierra begin to rise above the eastern side of California’s Central Valley. An expected increase in humidity Tuesday afternoon could help suppress flames, said Matt Mehle, a National Weather Service meteorologist assigned to the fire. Crews planned to focus Tuesday on the portion

of the fire threatening communities in the north. The fire approached the main reservoir serving San Francisco, but fears that the inferno could disrupt water or hydroelectric power to the city diminished. Utility officials monitored the basin’s clarity and used a new $4.6 billion gravity-operated pipeline system to move water quickly to reservoirs closer to the city. So far the ash that has fallen onto the reservoir has not sunk as far as the intake valves, which are about halfway down the 300-foot O’Shaughnessy Dam. Utility officials said the ash is non-toxic but that the city will begin filtering water for customers if problems are detected. Power generation there was shut down last week so firefighters would not be imperiled by live wires. San Francisco is buying replacement power from other sources to run City Hall and municipal buildings. It has been at least 17 years since fire ravaged the northernmost stretch of Yosemite that now is under siege. Crews cleared brush and set sprinklers on two groves of giant sequoias that were less than 10 miles away from the fire’s front lines, said park spokesman Scott Gediman. While sequoias have a chemical in their bark to help them resist fire, they can be damaged when flames move through slowly with such intense heat.


The Rim Fire burns along Highway 120 near Yosemite National Park, Calif., on Sunday. With winds gusting and flames jumping from treetop to treetop, hundreds of

The fire has swept through steep Sierra Nevada river canyons and stands of thick oak and pine, closing in on Tuolumne City and other mountain communities. It has confounded ground crews with its 300-foot walls of flame and the way it has jumped from treetop to treetop. Meanwhile, biologists with the Forest Service

firefighters have been deployed to protect communities in the path of the Rim Fire raging north of Yosemite National Park.

are studying the effect on wildlife. Much of the area that has burned is part of the state’s winter-range deer habitat. Biologist Crispin Holland said most of the large deer herds would still be well above the fire danger. Biologists discovered stranded Western pond turtles on national forest land near the edge of Yosemite. Their marshy

meadow had burned, and the surviving creatures were huddled in the middle of the expanse in what little water remained. “We’re hoping to deliver some water to those turtles,” Holland said. “We might also drag some brush in to give them cover.” Wildlife officials were also trying to monitor at least four bald eagle nests in the fire-stricken area.

Fort Hood gunman won’t call witnesses, testify FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people at Fort Hood decided not to call witnesses or testify Tuesday during his trial’s penalty phase, which is his last chance to plead for his life before the jury begins deliberating whether to sentence him to death. Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is acting as his own attorney, told the judge he was resting his case without submitting evidence, calling witnesses or testifying in his own defense. The judge then dismissed jurors, who convicted Hasan last week for the November 2009 shooting rampage that

also wounded more than 30 people at the Texas military base. But shortly after the jury left the courtroom, the judge asked Hasan more than two dozen questions in rapid fire, affirming that he knew what he was doing. His answers were succinct and just as rapid. “It is my personal decision,” he said. “It is free and voluntary.” The judge, Col. Tara Osborn, then read him several court opinions to back up her decision not to introduce evidence in Hasan’s favor on her own. “In other words, Maj. Hasan, you are the captain of your own ship,” Osborn said.

She said closing arguments would begin Wednesday. Whether Hasan will address jurors then remains unclear. Hasan rested his case shortly after more than a dozen widows, mothers, fathers, children and other relatives of those killed testified about their lives since the attack. Prosecutors hope the emotion testimony helps convince jurors to hand down a rare military death sentence. Hasan has put up nearly no defense since the trial began three weeks ago. He also called no witnesses and didn’t testify in his own defense before he was convicted, and he questioned only three

of prosecutors’ nearly 90 witnesses. Although he gave a brief opening statement, during which he acknowledged that the evidence would show he was the shooter, he gave no closing argument. But through media leaks and statements to the judge, the Americanborn Muslim appeared to justify the attack as a way to protect Islamic leaders from U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. Hasan released a report to the media during the trial that showed he told military mental health workers after the attack that he believed he could still be a martyr if convicted and executed by

the government. Prosecutors want Hasan to join just five other U.S. service members currently on military death row. The jury of 13 military officers must be unanimous for such a death sentence, and prosecutors must prove an aggravating factor and present evidence to show the severity of Hasan’s crimes. No American soldier has been executed since 1961. Many military death row inmates have had their sentences overturned on appeal, which are automatic when jurors vote for the death penalty. The president also must eventually approve a military death sentence.

Tax cut battle intensifies Agencies at odds over JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Millions of dollars spent broadcasting ads. Alarming fliers and phone calls targeting homes. Politicians barnstorming from one press conference to the next. By most measures, Missouri appears in the midst of another high-stakes election — except there is nothing on the ballot this year. The massive campaign is meant to persuade — or dissuade — a few wavering Missouri lawmakers who will decide in September whether to override the governor’s veto of the state’s first income tax rate cut in nearly a century. The Missouri battle is one of the most the intense yet in what has become a nationwide offensive by conservatives in state capitols to slice the income taxes that for decades have formed the financial foundation for government services ranging from public schools to prisons. They contend the tax cuts are the path to economic prosperity. Others forecast financial ruin. About a dozen states already have cut income taxes this year, including sweeping changes to tax codes in Kansas and North Carolina and a ratcheting down of rates in Arkansas, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin. Conservative lawmakers who gathered at a conference this month in Chicago received a how-to pep talk meant to spread the tax-cutting movement even further in 2014. “This is a national agenda

— there’s a lot of other people that have interest in trying to create jobs in America,” said Travis Brown, a St. Louis-based lobbyist and convention speaker who has traveled to 29 states this year promoting lower income taxes. One of Brown’s biggest benefactors, retired investment firm executive Rex Sinquefield, has poured about $2.4 million into an advertising campaign meant to encourage Missouri’s Republican-led Legislature to override Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon’ veto of the tax cut. The campaign includes the state’s biggest businesses associations and conservative activist groups such as the Missouri Club for Growth, which has threatened to drop support of any lawmaker who opposes the tax cut. The tax-cut plan even has gotten the attention of Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a potential 2016 presidential candidate who seized upon Nixon’s veto to target Missouri with TV and radio ads recruiting businesses to Texas. Perry is to headline an event Thursday in suburban St. Louis sponsored by a coalition pushing for a veto override. Opponents of the tax cut have responded with mass mailings and phone calls targeting residents in 15 House districts whose Republican legislators seemed susceptible to being swayed. They have been aided by public school

boards warning the tax-cut would jeopardize education funding and undermine the economy. Nixon added leverage to his veto by withholding $400 million from education, building projects and other services because of concerns that the tax cut would bust a hole in the budget. The governor said he would release the money only if lawmakers sustain his veto. During the past six weeks, Nixon has held roughly 30 public events to rally support for his veto. “We’ve worked very hard over the last four years to hold the line on taxes; we’re one of the lowest taxation states in the country,” Nixon said recently. But “this bill is not the right way to go about it.” The state school boards’ association has warned of consequences such as crowded classrooms and lower graduation rates. The Missouri measure would gradually cut the corporate income tax rate nearly in half and lower the top individual tax rate from 6 percent to 5.5 percent over the next decade, but only if state revenues rise by at least $100 million annually. It also would phase in a 50 percent tax deduction for business income reported on individual tax returns and increase deductions for low-income individuals. It would trigger even more income tax cuts if Congress passes a measure making it easier for states to tax online sales.

refinery fire probe WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government is fighting with itself over a massive fire at a Chevron refinery in California that sent 15,000 people to hospitals with respiratory ailments. In one corner is the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, which conducted 119 interviews in an effort to find out what caused last year’s accident and how to prevent it from happening again. In the other is the Environmental Protection Agency, which is conducting a criminal investigation and wants the interviews to help it determine who’s responsible. The 7-month-old document dispute has become so contentious that the safety board, headed by Rafael Moure-Eraso, went to court in an effort to quash grand jury subpoenas that federal prosecutors issued on behalf of the EPA, according to correspondence obtained by The Associated Press. Efforts to reach a compromise have failed so far. The fight between the board and the EPA illustrates how two vital public priorities — promoting safety and punishing violators — can be at odds with each other. While bureaucratic turf battles are a way of life in government, it is unusual for such disagreements to result in a subpoena fight.

The chemical board does not conduct criminal investigations, but relies on cooperation from industry workers to carry out its mission of pinpointing the causes of accidents and recommending ways to avoid them. In contrast, the EPA has a division with 200 agents whose job it is to prosecute criminal conduct that threatens people’s health and the environment. The board “has been working diligently with the Department of Justice to seek alternatives to release of the Chevron accident witness statements,” Moure-Eraso said in a statement. “Requiring the CSB to turn over these interviews and notes where they would be used to draft criminal charges and for prosecution purposes would likely have a devastating effect on our work.” The Aug. 6, 2012, accident at Chevron’s Richmond refinery 10 miles northeast of San Francisco sent clouds of gas and black smoke billowing over residential neighborhoods. In the weeks after, some 15,000 people were sent to hospitals with breathing problems. Chevron has paid $10 million to settle 24,000 claims from residents and to compensate area hospitals and local government agencies.





Some not calling 911 due to fear of publicity DEAR ABBY: A friend of mine was a victim of domestic violence. When I asked her why she didn’t phone 911 for help, her response was, “They play those 911 calls on the radio all the time.” She didn’t want her prominent husband’s career damaged by adverse publicity. Today, a group of us discussed the issue over breakfast. Many of the women said that because of the popularity of 911 calls being broadcast on the Internet, radio and TV, they’d be hesitant to phone for help when needed, too. Abby, someone is going to suffer serious harm out of fear that their call for help will be publicized. Do you know what can be done about this new “drama entertainment”? I wouldn’t want my terrified call heard by the public either, so I’d take my chances without calling for help. I just hope




Ask yourself if your friend’s husband’s career was worth risking her life for. It makes more sense to risk a 911 call being broadcast than to have cameras and TV reporters camped on your lawn while the EMTs or the coroner carry your battered, bloody body out on a gurney.

MRI can reveal extent of prostate cancer about how bad the cancer is and what kind of treatment you should receive. Once you’ve been diagnosed, decisions about your treatment will depend on the stage of your cancer. “Staging” is a way of describing how far ASK your cancer DOCTOR K. has spread. Ultrasound imaging have Dr. Anthony tests traditionally used to Komaroff been determine how much of the prostate gland is filled with cancer, and whether the cancer has spread to the tissues next to the prostate. A newer kind of MRI called endorectal MRI

may give a clearer picture than ultrasound of the local spread of prostate cancer. That’s important because, in the majority of men diagnosed with prostate cancer, it exists in multiple locations in the prostate gland. This new kind of MRI is not yet widely available, but it may be available to your doctor. Bone scans can determine if prostate cancer has spread through the blood to bones. MRI scans of the bones are another technique for detecting the spread of cancer. The pictures produced by the MRI will tell your doctor whether and to what extent your cancer has spread to surrounding tissue, lymph nodes and other parts of your body. Your doctor will use these details along with other information to predict how aggressive your tumor

DEAR DOCTOR K: I recently had a prostate biopsy and was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Now my doctor wants to do an MRI. Why? What new information will the MRI provide? DEAR READER: I can understand why you’re puzzled. A biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosing prostate cancer, so why do you need any other test? In a biopsy, bits of tissue are removed from different areas of your prostate gland. They are examined with a microscope to see if there are cancerous cells. If the biopsy shows cancer, the diagnosis has been made. The biopsy also can help determine how aggressive the cancer will be and how likely it is to spread. The biopsy tells you for sure if you have prostate cancer. But it doesn’t tell you everything you need to know

I don’t wake up dead one day as a result. — PUBLICITY-SHY IN FLORIDA DEAR PUBLICITY-SHY: Nothing can be done about “drama entertainment” as long as the public has an appetite for it. The DEAR reason for ABBY the practice of “if it bleeds, it in Jeanne Phillips leads” the media is that it draws viewers and listeners — which means advertising revenue. In the case of domestic violence, calling 911 is the lesser of two evils. Out-of-control abusers have been known to maim and kill the ones they “love.”

is and what treatment will be best. Many new techniques are under development to improve the diagnosis and staging of prostate cancer. New types of blood tests can spot prostate cancer cells that have escaped from the prostate gland and are circulating in the blood and threatening to lodge in bones. Biopsy specimens are not only being examined under a microscope; they also are being studied to see what genes are turned on and off in the cancerous tissue. These “gene expression” patterns are likely to point to the best treatment. Finally, new MRI imaging techniques are in development. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is
