COLUMBIA CITY — An Albion man was killed in an industrial accident in Whitley County late Monday, the Whitley County coroner’s office said. Jeffery A. Flory, 44, of Albion died as the result of an accident at the Steel Dynamics Inc. plant at

2800 S. C.R. 800E, the coroner’s office said. An autopsy determined that Flory died of blunt force trauma with multiple internal injuries, Whitley County Coroner Frederick R. Dellinger said. He ruled the death to be accidental. Emergency personnel were called to SDI shortly after 10 p.m.

Monday, according to dispatch records. The coroner’s office began its investigation at about 10:30 p.m., a news release said. The autopsy will be performed at the Allen County coroner’s office, but the Whitley County coroner will remain officially in charge of the investigation. SDI is working in cooperation with the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration to determine the cause of the accident, said Ben Eisbart, SDI vice president of human resources.

An OSHA press release said it has up to six mon ths to complete an investigation, but this type of investigation usually takes about two months. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Flory family and to Jeff’s co-workers,” Eisbart said. Flory was a graduate of West Noble High School in the class of 1987. Assisting at the scene were the Indiana State Police, Whitley County Sheriff’s Department and Union Township Fire Department.

KENDALLVILLE — An agency designed to bring visitors to Noble County has had a “visitor” from Uganda on its staff this summer. Nancy Shitakha of Kampala, Uganda, has been serving as a summer intern at the Noble County Convention & Visitors Bureau since June 5. Her last day at the bureau will be Thursday. Shitakha has been in Indiana for years. “I was a student at Manchester University,” she said, and she recently graduated from the school. She plans to attend Ball State University this autumn to pursue her master’s degree. Manchester had a job fair this spring, and Noble visitors bureau Executive Director Sheryl Prentice

attended, Shitakha said. Working with a group such as the visitors bureau sounded interesting to Shitakha. “She had done internships with the Community Foundation of Wabash County,” Prentice said of Shitakha. “We had five excellent candidates to choose from at Manchester. She was the best of the group.” Part of what interested Shitakha in the internship was the agency’s nature. “I want to get into nonprofit as a professional career,” she said. Another appeal of the agency was that it was a new concept to Shitakha. There are no groups promoting tourism or preserving history in Uganda, she said. Shitakha’s work has included putting together the new Noble

Kendallville’s Friendship Food Pantry perilously low on food BY GRACE HOUSHOLDER ghousholder@kpcmedia.com

KENDALLVILLE — The Friendship Food Pantry’s cupboards are bare, according to Robert Smith, director. Donations of food and money have declined during the summer months while at the same time needy families have more children at home to feed. The food pantry needs cash donations to buy food, especially meat. “All of our food is not donated,� Smith explained Tuesday. “We have to buy food from local grocery stores or from the Community Harvest Food Bank in Fort Wayne. Even

Community Harvest is low on product. I haven’t seen a can of soup at the distribution center in Fort Wayne for about a month. I have never seen our soup shelf so low. We are always in need of pasta products such as spaghetti and macaroni and tomato sauce. Peanut butter is always a major item. Our one shelf with condiments like salad dressings and pancake syrup is almost empty, as well. Those are not the most essential items, but people do like to pick up ketchup and mustard. “We get quite a bit of food through the federal government’s commodity program. That is one

source that has been consistent. We thank the federal government for their surplus products. Sometimes we get meat from the government and canned items. “There is not a can of corn on our shelves. We usually have corn sticking out of our ears. In fact, we certainly welcome donations of fresh vegetables. Farmers do bring things in from their fields but it’s not a regular thing. “We also are really in need of paper products. We had a source and that dried up so now we have to depend on periodic donations. Right now there is no toilet paper on the shelves. That is always an important item because with the

food stamp program you can’t buy paper products. Also we need detergents for laundry; we have none.� The Friendship Food Pantry is open Wednesdays from 1-3 p.m. and from 4-5:30 p.m. and Fridays from 2-4 p.m. A ministry of Common Grace of Noble County, the food pantry shares a facility with Common Grace at 2004 Dowling St., just east of the intersection of Dowling and Allen Chapel Road. In addition to families with children, the food pantry serves many single people living by themselves. “The elderly are becoming much more a client than

in the past,� Smith said. “We serve the greater Kendallville area. We don’t ask people to prove income or where they live.� In June, the pantry served 1,209 individuals in 459 households; in July, 1,234 individuals from 490 families. Last year in July, 1,203 individuals were served. Last August, 1,528 people were served. “We want to thank the volunteers who come in and help with the pantry operation, the board members and all donors,� Smith said. For more information call the food pantry at 242-6427 or Smith at 323-4571.

Council praises code enforcement officer KENDALLVILLE — The City Council Tuesday night praised the work of the city’s code enforcement officer for getting homeowners to improve their properties. “I’ve never seen so many cleaning up, repairing and fixing roofs, and it’s due to Terry’s (code enforcement officer Terry Longsworth’s) letters,� said Councilman Jim Dazey. “We hemmed and hawed about hiring a code enforcement officer, but I think it was the best move we could have done.� Longsworth was hired in November 2012 on a part-time basis and began his job in earnest this spring. He attempts to work with

some programs from the iPads themselves, such as Facetime, iMessage and a games section, which were deemed to be only a distraction to students and have little educational value, Swihart said. It also blocks students from accessing sites that are not useful for educational purposes or inappropriate, Swihart said. Among the sites blocked is Twitter. If a device is tampered with to shut down the software, its wireless profile will be disabled immediately, Swihart said.

Rois, as some called him while others called him Neil, was born in Natchez, Mississippi. He was a World War II veteran and served in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific. Rois spent his retirement living in his beloved cabin, rocking on his front porch and fishing the lakes of Fairfield Glade in Crossville, Tenn.

Report: Charges filed in Benghazi attack WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department has filed the first criminal charges in the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, news reports said Tuesday. CNN, NBC News and The Wall Street Journal reported that unspecified counts had been filed and sealed in the September 2012 attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. CNN said the charges named Ahmed Abu Khattalah, a Libyan militia leader. The Journal said charges were filed against more than one person. “The department’s investigation is ongoing. It has been, and remains, a top priority,” said Justice Department spokesman Andrew C. Ames, who declined to comment further. A key Republican urged the administration to do more than file charges. “Osama bin Laden had been criminally charged long before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks but was not apprehended,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said in a statement. U.S. Navy SEALS killed bin Laden in Pakistan on May 2, 2011. “Delays in apprehending the suspected Benghazi killers,” Issa added, “will only put American lives at further and needless risk.” The Associated Press reported in May that American officials had identified five men who might be responsible for the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi that occurred just weeks before President Barack Obama’s re-election. The FBI released photos of three of the five suspects, asking the public to provide more information on the men pictured. The images were captured by security cameras at the U.S. diplomatic post during the attack, but it took weeks for the FBI to see and study them. The FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies identified the men through contacts in Libya and by monitoring their communications. They are thought to be members of Ansar al-Shariah, the Libyan militia group whose fighters were seen near the U.S. diplomatic facility prior to the violence.

George W. Bush has stent procedure BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Former President George W. Bush successfully underwent a heart procedure in Dallas on Tuesday after doctors discovered a blockage in an artery during his annual physical, Bush spokesman Freddy Ford said. “At the recommendation of his doctors, President Bush agreed to have a stent placed to open the blockage,” Ford said. “The procedure was performed successfully this morning, without complication, at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.” Bush, 67, was expected to be discharged Wednesday and resume his normal schedule the following day.

The blockage was discovered Monday during Bush’s physical at the Cooper Clinic in Dallas, where the nation’s 43rd president lives. Bush was described as being “in high spirits” and eager to return home. “He is grateful to the skilled medical professionals who have cared for him,” Ford said. “He thanks his family, friends, and fellow citizens for their prayers and well wishes. And he encourages us all to get our regular check-ups.” Stents are mesh scaffoldings that prop open arteries typically clogged by years of quiet cholesterol buildup. About half a million people have stents inserted in the

U.S. each year, generally involving an overnight stay in the hospital. Doctors usually guide a narrow tube through a blood vessel near the groin up to the heart, inflate a tiny balloon to flatten the blockage and insert the stent. Sometimes, they insert it through an artery in the wrist to lower the risk of bleeding. Doctors often recommend first trying medication to treat a clogged artery. More severe blockages, particularly in several arteries, may require bypass surgery. Arteries can reclog, so patients often are put on heart-friendly diets or medication.

Taco Bell expands breakfast testing NEW YORK (AP) — Taco Bell says it’s expanding its small test of waffle tacos, as it prepares to take its breakfast menu national sometime next year. The fast-food chain says the waffle taco, which includes scrambled eggs, sausage and a side of syrup, was the top seller during breakfast hours at the five

Southern California restaurants where they were tested earlier this year. Now the company wants to see how it would fare on a bigger scale; the waffle tacos and a full breakfast menu will be expanded to about 100 restaurants in Fresno, Calif.; Omaha, Neb.; and Chattanooga, Tenn., starting Thursday. Brian Niccol, president

of Taco Bell, said the idea is partly to get a better sense of how well restaurants will be able to handle the added operational pressure from the waffle tacos. “You only get one shot when you go with big items,” he said. Taco Bell already offers breakfast at about 850 locations in 10 Western states.

A snake expert said it was possible that the python was spooked and simply clung to whatever it landed on. Police are treating the deaths in Campbellton, New Brunswick, as a criminal investigation. Autopsies on Noah Barthe, 4 and his brother Connor Barthe, 6, were being performed Tuesday. The brothers had been

visiting the apartment of a friend whose father owned an exotic pet store on the floor below, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Alain Tremblay said at a news conference in Campbellton. Tremblay said the African rock python was being kept inside the second floor apartment, not inside the pet store as authorities had previously stated.

Embassy closures a window into terror threat concerns WASHINGTON (AP) — The map of closed American embassies — and those that remain open — in the Middle East and Africa provides a window into the Obama administration’s concern about a potentially imminent al-Qaida terrorist attack on overseas U.S. interests. While diplomatic missions across a broad swath of the Arab world are affected, some, including in capitals that have been targets for extremists in the past, are not. And those chosen for closure in Africa and the Indian Ocean suggest that the fear may be as much about the vulnerability of certain embassies and staff and the range of increasingly mobile terrorists as it is about specific threats. One apparently key factor: How significant is the security that is now in place? A total of 19 U.S. embassies and consulates in 16 countries have been ordered to close to the public until Saturday. They run along a jagged, east-tosouth crescent from Libya through the Persian Gulf to Rwanda and include the island nations of Madagascar and Mauritius, That’s fewer missions in

fewer nations than were ordered closed this past Sunday in the administration’s initial response to intelligence that al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula was gearing up for an attack. The changes, coupled with the inclusions and omissions, show how the threat analysis has evolved. According to the State Department, the closures are all the result of the same intelligence on the threat. Yet, that intelligence stream appears to be significantly diffuse, covering embassies and other posts stretching 4,800 miles from Tripoli, Libya, to Port Louis, Mauritius, and not limited to Muslim or Muslim-majority nations. “It is the same stream that we’ve referenced in travel warnings since Sunday,” department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday, adding: “Obviously, there’s new information.” She would not elaborate. Clearly, Yemen, where the department ordered most U.S. government employees to leave early Tuesday, is at the center. The base of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, Yemen has been the

subject of a dire and continuous U.S. travel warning since 2002. An intercepted secret message between al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri and his deputy in Yemen about plans for a major terror attack triggered the closures. Al-Zawahri’s message to Nasser al-Wahishi was picked up several weeks ago and appeared to initially target Yemen, according to officials familiar with the matter. The threat was expanded to include American or other Western sites abroad, officials said, indicating the target could be a single embassy, a number of posts or some other site. Based on their very close proximity to Yemen, U.S. facilities in that country’s closest neighbors — Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Djibouti — could be considered logical targets, as could posts in Egypt, Jordan, Libya and Sudan. But Lebanon, which has been the site of major anti-U.S. terrorist attacks in the past, is not included. And, neither are Morocco and Tunisia, where extremists have also struck previously.

TERROR: 19 diplomatic posts temporarily closed FROM PAGE A1

their movements. Although the immediate threat seemed to be focused on Yemen, the U.S. has temporarily shut down 19 diplomatic posts in the Middle East and Africa. A U.S. intelligence official and a Mideast diplomat told The Associated Press that the closures were triggered by the interception of a secret message between al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri and Nasser al-Wahishi, the leader of the Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, about plans for a major terror attack. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. Zawahri also made a public statement on July 30 that exhorted Muslims to kill

Americans “in every spot on Earth.” Yemeni investigators looking into the threat said they believe the motive of the attack was retaliation for the killing of Saudi-born Saeed al-Shihri, who was released from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay after nearly six years and later became the No. 2 al-Qaida leader in Yemen. Al-Shihri was critically wounded in a November drone strike and later died of his wounds, the militant group acknowledged. The terror network has suffered a series of setbacks after the military launched an offensive in June with the help of U.S. forces that has succeeded in uprooting it from strongholds in the south. The group had taken advantage of the instability after the Arab Spring wave

of revolutions that led to the resignation of Yemen’s longtime leader, Ali Abdullah Saleh. Yemen’s current president, Abdo Rabby Mansour Hadi, met with President Barack Obama at the White House last week, where both leaders cited strong counterterrorism cooperation. Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said the U.S. Air Force transported State Department personnel out of Sanaa early Tuesday. The department said in a travel warning that it had ordered the departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel “due to the continued potential for terrorist attacks,” adding that U.S. citizens should leave immediately because of an “extremely high” security threat level.

Verlander, Tigers topple Indians CLEVELAND (AP) — Justin Verlander dominated for eight innings and Don Kelly hit a three-run homer off Justin Masterson, leading the Detroit Tigers to their 10th straight win, 5-1 over the Cleveland Indians. Verlander (12-8) allowed one run and four hits as the Tigers beat the Indians for 10th time in 11 games and opened a five-game lead over Cleveland in the AL Central. Kelly connected in the fifth inning off Masterson (13-8) and Miguel Cabrera picked up his 100th RBI as the Tigers improved to 11-3 against their nearest division rival. The Indians, who are 24-10 against the Central’s three other teams, have to hope they can win the next two over Detroit to split the series. To do that, they’ll have to beat Doug Fister and Max Scherzer. “Detroit has four aces, which is why they are so good,” Indians manager Terry Francona said

When Cleveland threatened in the sixth with two on and none out, Verlander turned up the heat. He retired Nick Swisher on a deep fly to right before blowing a 100 mph fastball past All-Star Jason Kipnis for strike two and then locked him up with an 84 mph changeup. Verlander then got Asdrubal Cabrera to ground out on another fastball then hit the century mark on the radar gun. As he headed toward the dugout, the right-hander pumped his fist knowing he had probably put the Indians away for good. Masterson had one bad inning, and it cost him. Kelly’s three-run shot highlighted Detroit’s five-run fifth off the right-hander, who hurt himself by hitting two batters during the inning. Kelly owns Masterson. He’s now 11 of 24 (.458).

Phil Mickelson watches his tee shot on the 11th hole during the Bridgestone Invitational.

Mickelson heads into the PGA Championship this week.

Mickelson feeling complete after British Open triumph PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Phil Mickelson looks at himself differently these days. Sure, there’s a bit of uncertainty in the grogginess of morning, when he wakes up wondering if that claret jug really belongs to him for a whole year. Then — yep — there it is, his name engraved on the silver chalice. For Lefty, it’s all gravy from this point on. He feels complete. “The British Open really changed some of my perception of myself as a player,” Mickelson said Tuesday after a practice round at Oak Hill for the final major of the year, the PGA Championship. “Had I won another green jacket, that would not have done the same thing as what winning the claret jug has done.” Mickelson is a little over two weeks removed from one of the

greatest closing rounds in major championship history, a 5-under 66 at rock-hard Muirfield to claim golf’s oldest crown. It was the leg of the career Grand Slam that always figured to elude him. His game was built for the target golf played in America, complete with an array of soaring drives and wondrous wedges. But, over four days along the Scottish coast, Mickelson showed he could grind it out better than anyone on a tabletop of a course, imagining shots that go against everything he’s supposed to be about — then pulling them off. “In my mind, it is an accomplishment in my career that makes me more of a complete player,” he said. “To finally have won that and break through and play some of my best golf ever in my final round, that kind of changes the way I view myself and my game, more so than just a major championship that I had already won.”

Mickelson has already won the PGA Championship, back in 2005 at Baltusrol. That’s not to say he doesn’t want to add a few more majors to a resume that already ensures he’ll be remembered as one of the game’s greatest players. He’s never been this confident about his chances. “I’m more motivated than ever to work hard to succeed, because I can taste some of my best golf coming out,” Mickelson said, his voice and demeanor just oozing confidence. “I can feel it.” At 43, he’s already a man in full, complete with five major championships. Only 11 golfers have won more. But don’t get him wrong — he’s driven to complete a career Grand Slam, merely lacking a victory in the U.S. Open, where he’s been the runner-up a record six times.

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) — Matt Forte expects to be more than the last-resort receiver for quarterback Jay Cutler this season. Chicago brought in an additional weapon in tight end Martellus Bennett, it’s the veteran running back who may prove critical to the Bears’ success. Forte always played a big role in the passing attack until last season. In coach Marc Trestman’s new offense, Forte expects a return to the old days. “It’s not really a new role,” Forte said. “It’s not like I haven’t done it before. I’m just excited about getting back to getting out of the backfield and running routes and stuff and catching balls and not only just running the ball, getting handoffs, but getting the ball out in space, just spreading the ball around.” Forte had his fewest yards receiving (340) and fewest catches (44) last year when the only target Cutler could repeatedly find was Brandon Marshall. Former offensive coordinator Mike Tice brought Forte inside to use as a blocker as the offensive line struggled to protect Cutler. Trestman has a history of using running backs as receiving weapons. In 1995, Trestman used littleknown Derek Loville for 87 receptions with the San Francisco 49ers, second on the team only to Jerry Rice. Charlie Garner caught 91 passes for 941 yards in 2002 in Trestman’s offense with the Oakland Raiders. Even in Canada, Trestman used backs for receptions. Brandon Whitaker had 121 catches over two seasons for Montreal. Trestman sees Forte as entirely capable in this multi-threat role. “He’s at the top of everything,” Trestman said. SEE BEARS, PAGE B2

Chapman, Whalen having breakouts at Colts camp ANDERSON (AP) — Defensive tackle Josh Chapman took out four blockers with one big swipe. Colts receiver Griff Whalen has been catching everything that comes his way. They’re training camp wonder twins. “He (Chapman) has developed that nastiness, ‘Hey I demand two people on me at all times, and if you don’t I’m going to bull rush this center to the back of the quarterback and make something happen,’” defensive end Cory Redding said. “That’s his mindset and I love that. A lot of guys don’t like getting doubled or triple teamed and he’s like ‘Put more, put more on me, because if you

do, all my guys are free.’ He’s ready for the workload.” It’s not a surprise to the Colts, who gambled by using last year’s fifth-round pick on the Alabama star. Indy knew the 6-foot, 341-pound run-stuffer played half of his final college season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and waited until the offseason to have surgery and might not play as a rookie. He didn’t. Chapman opened the season on PUP, was activated Nov. 12 and then landed on season-ending injured reserved 16 days later. Now that he’s healthy, Chapman has been impressive.

Electronic trail helped MLB gain Biogenesis bans NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook friends. Transcripts of BlackBerry instant messages. Records of texts. Major League Baseball’s investigators used an arsenal of high-tech tools to collect the evidence that persuaded a dozen players to accept 50-game suspensions this week for their ties to the Biogenesis clinic. And when it came time to meet with the players’ association, they flashed some of their documentary proof. While there was not enough time for the union to thoroughly examine what baseball had collected, there was little doubt there was an electronic trail, one of the people familiar with the meetings said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no public statements were authorized. “It both complicates things and adds a layer of proof that certainly wasn’t available many years ago,” union general counsel David

Prouty said Tuesday. Alex Rodriguez, the lone holdout against a suspension, faces an arbitration hearing in coming months that likely will include such evidence. The New York Yankees third baseman was suspended for 211 games from Thursday through the 2014 season, though he is allowed to play until a decision is issued by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, which is not expected until at least November. Until now, nearly all suspensions under MLB’s drug program resulted from positive drug tests. The Biogenesis probe revealed players were using PEDs without detection. “To catch the most sophisticated intentional fraudsters, you have to use non-analytical means, which is another reason why baseball’s effort here is such a pivotal moment for the anti-doping fight,” said Travis Tygart, chief executive office of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

MLB officials would not speak for attribution about its investigation. The league used about 30 people full time in its fact-gathering, another person familiar with the process said Tuesday, also on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. The probe was sparked in January when the Miami New Times published documents linking players to the clinic and accused it of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. Technology has evolved since 2003, when federal agents raided the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative in Burlingame, Calif., sparking an investigation that eventually led to criminal convictions of Barry Bonds, track star Marion Jones, cyclist Tammy Thomas and NFL lineman Dana Stubblefield. And when former Sen. George Mitchell issued his report on drugs in baseball four years later, he recommended baseball start an investigations department. Dan

Mullin, a former New York City Police Officer, was hired as the unit’s head in 2008. Former U.S. Secret Service director Mark Sullivan was brought in to assist in the Biogenesis probe. After the Miami New Times report, baseball investigators examined the Facebook pages of Bosch and Porter Fisher, the former Biogenesis associate who gave documents to the newspaper. They began to sketch out which people they were friends with, and which of those friends posted photos of athletes or mentioned athletes. Each link led to new loops that provided leads. MLB filed a lawsuit in March against Biogenesis of America, company founder Anthony Bosch and others, complaining they interfered with the contracts between MLB and the union. The suit was unusual and may never reach trial, but it did give MLB the ability to file civil subpoenas. Records from Florida’s Circuit

Court for Miami-Dade County that were examined by the AP showed subpoenas were issued to Federal Express, AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA, UPS and Metro PCS. At least some of those companies complied and turned over data to the probe, one of the people said. By June, Bosch agreed to cooperate with the investigation. The person said MLB hired a data recovery company to obtain records from his mobile telephone. When baseball officials met with the union, evidence included the BlackBerry instant message transcripts and records of text messages. Lawyers for players believed some emails also had been recovered. “It’s like traditional law enforcement methods,” Tygart said. “Even without the powers of law enforcement — wiretaps, search warrants — you can still have success in obtaining these documents.”

Bruce homers, Reds beat A’s 3-1 CINCINNATI (AP) — Jay Bruce homered and made a run-saving catch on the warning track, and Mat Latos pitched into the eighth inning against Oakland’s slumping lineup on Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Athletics. The Reds had dropped seven of nine and were coming off what players called an embarrassing weekend against St. Louis — losses of 13-3 and 15-2. They found an American League team struggling even more. The West-leading Athletics have lost five of six. Latos (11-3) allowed four hits through 7 1-3 shutout innings, leaving him 3-0 in his last four starts. Aroldis Chapman gave up Derek Norris’ two-out homer in the ninth while getting his 26th save in 30 chances. Bruce hit his 23rd homer off Dan Straily (6-6), who has lost his last four starts. The right fielder also went a long way to run down Josh Reddick’s fly ball to the warning track in the fourth,

saving a run. The A’s made their first visit to Great American Ball Park — opened in 2003 — hoping to break out of their offensive slump in a hitterfriendly place. The A’s are only 8-9 since the All-Star break. Heading into the interleague series, the A’s were batting .218 in their last 20 games, getting blanked four times. They were coming off a 4-0 loss to Texas on Sunday. Manager Bob Melvin said his players knew all about Great American’s propensity to help hitters, and hoped it would provide some encouragement. Didn’t work out that way. The A’s stranded runners in scoring position in the first, third, fifth and eighth innings. Coco Crisp tripled over first base with one out in the third but failed to score as the next two batters popped out. Their best chance came in the fifth, when they loaded the bases on Stephen Vogt’s single, second baseman Brandon Phillips’

The idea is to get Forte out in the open field more so he can utilize his moves and speed. Forte knows now why Trestman’s offense is often said to use the passing game as the running game. “It’s a different way of actually kind of like running the ball,” he said. “After you catch it, you’ve got to run with it. So instead of handing it off, you get the ball out in space and that just gives you more opportunity to make big plays.” AP The running back/passing Chicago Cubs’ Donnie Murphy, left, a three-run home run off Philadelphia offense influence in Chicago celebrates with third base coach David Phillies starting pitcher Kyle Kendrick on is even greater with Aaron Bell as he rounds the bases after hitting Tuesday.

On one running play last week, Chapman shoved 300-pound center Samson Satele and 325-pound right guard Mike McGlynn into 314-pound right tackle Gosder Cherlius and tight end Dwayne Allen. With four blockers down, the play went nowhere. “You can see just what we saw on tape coming out of Alabama before he got injured,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “He’s a load. It’s like sticking a 900-pound safe in the middle of the line of scrimmage. He’s tough to get out of there and he’s smart as a whip. He’ll call out every run play based on formation and backfield sets before it ever happens.” If Chapman continues to play this well in the preseason and regular season, the Colts might finally have their anchor in the middle to stop the run. On offense, the breakout star has been Whalen. A year ago, he looked like a promising young undrafted rookie. Then he landed on injured reserve with a fractured right foot. This summer, the 5-foot11, 197-receiver has been turning heads. Thanks to his familiarity with Pep Hamilton’s new offense and Andrew Luck’s nuances, the Stanford grad has taken advantage of his opportunity by running crisp, precise routes and catching almost anything thrown in his direction. “Griffer, he’s always surprised people,” Luck said. “I remember coming in as a freshman, as a walk-on, we thought we had the best scout team in America because we would sort of throw the ball up to Griff and he would go run

SPORTS BRIEFS • Packers sign QB Vince Young as backup GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have signed free agent Vince Young as a backup quarterback. The Packers looked at their options after No. 3 quarterback B.J. Coleman threw two interceptions in the team’s intrasquad scrimmage Saturday night, and decided to go with Young. The No. 2 quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers is Graham Harrell. Young was the third overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound quarterback spent five seasons with the Tennessee Titans and one season with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was with the Buffalo Bills during the 2012 preseason. The Packers also signed wide receiver Justin Wilson on Tuesday. The rookie from Delaware State took part in the Packers’ rookie orientation camp in May. Also, wide receiver Sederrik Cunningham was placed on injured reserve.

Stanford to retire John Elway’s No. 7 jersey STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Thirty years after he left school, Stanford football is retiring John Elway’s No. 7 jersey. The former Cardinal quarterback and No. 1 overall pick of the 1983 NFL draft will have his jersey retired during halftime of Stanford’s home game against Oregon on Nov. 7. Elway, now the executive vice president of the Denver Broncos, will be only the third player to have his jersey enshrined by the school, joining Ernie Nevers ( No. 1) and Jim Plunkett (No. 16). Wide receiver Ty Montgomery and defensive end Aziz Shittu both wear No. 7 currently. They will be the last to wear that jersey at Stanford. Elway threw for 9,349 yards and 77 touchdowns while completing 62 percent of his passes at Stanford. He held nearly every major passing record — most of them since shattered by Andrew Luck — when he left school. Elway still owns the single-game record with six touchdown passes in a 54-13 win against Oregon State on Nov. 1, 1980. Elway was the Pac-10 Conference Player of the Year in 1980 and 1982, when he also was a consensus All-American. After the Cardinal lost at rival California on the infamous lateral play in his final collegiate game, Elway finished second to Herschel Walker in the 1982 Heisman Trophy voting.

I’ll take a burger — hold the cow Talk about skipping the middle man. Monday, The Associated Press reported that a Dutch scientist had created hamburger grown in a laboratory from cattle stem cells. Mark Post, whose team at Maastricht University in the Netherlands developed the burger over five years, told AP that making meat in labs eventually could help feed the world and fight climate change — although that goal is probably a decade or two away. Post’s team was able to come up with a 5-ounce burger. It took only five MATT years and $330,000. Now I don’t know GETTS about you, but that seems pretty pricey for a quarter pounder-plus. Post’s team made the meat from shoulder muscle cells of two organically raised cows, AP said. The cells were put into a nutrient solution to help them develop into muscle tissue, and they grew into small strands For the first time ever of meat. — outside of school Sounds tasty, doesn’t lunchrooms — burgers it? may be created with Let the Food no fat and no taste Channel put whatsoever. on a show about that. An animal rights activist (with way too much money and time on his hands) funded the project. As a result, if you have an extra quarter million lying around, you can get a hamburger without killing a cow. The implications of such news is wide-ranging. If we can create meat in a dish, what about chicken? What about fish? Will our rivers one day be filled with test tubes instead of salmon and trout? For the first time ever — outside of school lunchrooms — burgers may be created with no fat and no taste whatsoever. What about the ramifications to our county fairs? In 2032, the winner of the Noble County 4-H beef show may just bring in his winning entry in a small cooler. On the bright side, the shows would smell better, and how long could it take a judge to extol the virtues of something in a small petri dish? The Noble County 4-H cat show this year included awards for best decorated carrier cage. Will the 2032 winner of the beef show double as grand champion for best-designed petri? In a somewhat related note, disgraced baseball slugger Alex Rodriguez has been suspended for more than a year’s worth of games for his involvement in a performance-enhancing drug scandal. Personally, I like my meat — and ballplayers — natural. We can give athletes the muscle without the work. We can get hamburger without the cow. Maybe we are sacrificing too much. Who said the easiest way was the best?

Rulings on same-sex marriage benefits leave uncertainty BY STEPHEN M. KING, PH.D.

In U.S. vs. Windsor, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the provision in the Defense of Marriage Act denying federal benefits to legally-married couples was unconstitutional. The Court, however, left intact Section 2 of DOMA, which essentially says that all 37 states that do not recognize same-sex marriage are not required to recognize same-sex marriages in the 13 states that do. Confusing? It only gets worse. This inaction on the part of the Court is causing havoc with the administration of state social services in the 37 states that do not recognize same-sex marriage, including Indiana. David Hansell, a consultant with the firm KPMG who advises states on legal and administrative matters related to social-services programs, contends that this ruling puts the state agencies in the position of having to administer these programs while balancing a responsibility to both the federal government and the states, meaning their own state. And to complicate matters, a federal judge in Ohio ruled that Ohio must acknowledge same-sex couples who were married in Maryland (one of the 13 states that does recognize same-sex marriage) so same-sex couples can be buried in the same cemetery in Ohio. Other states will probably succumb to the homosexual lobby’s pressure and pass laws recognizing, although not necessarily outright legalizing, same-sex marriages. Not confusing enough for you? Indiana law mandates that for a marriage here to be valid it must be between one man and one woman. In addition, Indiana does not recognize same-sex marriages conducted and recognized in another state.

Yet, because of the Court’s DOMA ruling — and, as importantly, the Ohio ruling — Indiana state officials will need to gear up for challenges from same-sex couples legally married in another state but who moved to Indiana. It will be argued that it is discriminatory to deny various social-services benefits such as Medicaid and food stamps. The 800-pound gorilla is that these services are administered by the state but funded by the federal government. So, the question is this: Who will decide whether or not same-sex couples in Indiana receive these services, the state or the feds? As Hansell points out, no decision will be made until after additional rounds of litigation. He thinks that states such as Indiana, however, will feel compelled to be bound to state law for administration of these services. Of course, more litigation will occur until finally, sometime over the next several years, a decision will be rendered, determining once and for all what is the law, who is bound by it and how it will be administered. All of this confusion could have been avoided if the Court had not involved itself in states’ political matters or had upheld DOMA under the same logic that it upheld the Patient Affordable Care Act, i.e., there must be strong and compelling evidence and interest to overturn federal legislation, invoking the much misinterpreted and misunderstood power of judicial review. Such abuse of federal judiciary power threatens to undermine the delicate institutional balance of power among the three branches of government. And probably as important and more alarming is the continued dismissal of the Tenth Amendment, that is: “The powers not

Indiana does not recognize same-sex marriages conducted and recognized in another state … Indiana state officials will need to gear up for challenges from same-sex couples legally married in another state but who moved to Indiana.

• delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” The U.S. Constitution does not disallow states from instituting laws that define marriage. Yet, because of the intruding nature and character of the federal court system, we are witnessing the disintegration of true liberal democracy, meaning the preservation of rights and freedoms contained within the Constitution, or sustained over the decades by and through common cultural standards, and dedicated for the greater public good. Democracy is not supposed to be shackled by the liberal elite, who through their power, influence and money maneuver their way through state legislative halls and courtrooms, and force their limited agenda on the people as a whole. STEPHEN M. KING, PH.D., an adjunct scholar of the Indiana Policy Review Foundation, holds the R. Philip Loy Endowed Chair of Political Science at Taylor University.

What Others Say • Goshen school board drops the ball on ‘Redskins’ discussion We’ll get to the point: This newspaper feels the term “Redskins,” used as the nickname for Goshen High School athletic teams, has derogatory racial overtones and could be offensive to Native Americans, among others. We also acknowledge that for decades GHS alumni have proudly identified themselves with that nickname, equating it not with Native Americans, but a pride in their school, coaches and classmates. We can see both sides. So, what should be done? Elsewhere, the “Redskins” nickname has been eliminated from college athletics and is on its way to informally being phased out in high school athletics. Port Townsend High School in Port Townsend, Wash., is the latest school to drop the controversial nickname after its school board voted unanimously in June to go in another direction after 87 years. Even Hall of Fame former players of the NFL’s Washington Redskins have come out in support of a name change for that professional franchise. We give credit to Goshen Community School Corp.

Superintendent Diane Woodworth for advancing this conversation back in May when she said, “If this concern re-emerges in our community, perhaps it would be time to organize a study committee again to re-examine all aspects of the current GHS mascot.” She’s right. That’s what should have happened. Too bad it didn’t. We are disappointed that Goshen school trustees have kept their heads in the sand as this debate exploded nearly two months ago when a wooden statue depicting a Native American chief was removed from the gymnasium for graduation. While the statue was returned to its normal spot in time for graduation, largely because of an outcry on social media, it became clear that this matter has a deeper meaning. How did the school board handle it? It ignored it and let Woodworth take a beating by herself on Facebook, Twitter and voicemail. Now is the time to talk about this and we are dismayed that the school board failed to take advantage of this opportunity in recent weeks, instead choosing to dismiss this matter as some little nickname not worthy of their attention. This school board should have stood up behind their superintendent and said, “We’re dealing with

this now.” Whether the nickname stays or goes, it demands a process of discussion that is not a Facebook comment or Twitter feed. Put grown-ups in a room and let them make their points. Consider that “Redskins” could be derogatory. Consider too that the term only represents school pride to many. Study what is happening elsewhere and why and determine a course of action. Goshen School Board President Jane Troup seemingly rolls her eyes at the “Redskins” controversy, practically declaring it not worthy of the board’s time and effort. While we understand each board member has other significant responsibilities, this matter should not be laughed off. The fact that trustees don’t want to talk about it speaks volumes. Troup went on to suggest that the “Redskins” issue shouldn’t be part of the board’s focus for the upcoming school year. That focus, she said Thursday, will be concentrating on efforts to answer the following questions: • Are the curriculum and programs up to date and relevant? • Are the facilities desirable? • Is Goshen Community Schools welcoming to all students? • And how should Goshen Community Schools most

effectively promote itself? Those are fine questions for trustees to strive to answer. We see the “Redskins” conversation fitting into the last two questions. If “Redskins” is synonymous with “Goshen Community Schools,” the board should determine if that moniker is welcoming to “all” students. And, if Goshen Community Schools wants to most effectively promote itself, the board should ask if it wishes to continue with a potentially offensive nickname that a previous study committee already suggested be de-emphasized. If we have a de-emphasized mascot, isn’t it logical to ask, “What’s the point?” What the board needs to understand is this issue is more about the future than it is the past. Times and sentiment are evolving. If we’re “Redskins” to the end, why not proclaim it? If it’s only a matter of time before we move on, why not prepare for it? The biggest mistake would be to flat out ignore it and end up on the wrong side of it. The school board should facilitate a community discussion and form a transparent committee that leads further evaluation of Goshen High School’s continued use of the “Redskins” nickname. We do believe it is worthy of their time and efforts. The Goshen News

Briefs • Coroner: Man who shot official tried firing more shots SAYLORSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A man who fatally shot a township official and two others during a municipal meeting in northeastern Pennsylvania was about to fire more rounds when he was wrestled to the ground, possibly preventing more bloodshed, authorities said Tuesday. About 15 to 18 residents and town officials were at the meeting Monday night in Ross Township when the gunfire erupted, according to Pennsylvania State Police. The gunman, 59-yearold Rockne Newell, who had been involved in a long-running dispute with the township over a dilapidated property, was tackled to the ground by two people and was shot with his own gun, authorities said. He was treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound to the leg and was arraigned Tuesday on homicide charges and other counts.

Fort Hood attack meticulously planned FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan fired the last of 146 bullets in his assault on Fort Hood, then walked outside where he met two civilians who asked about the commotion and the laser-sighted pistol in his hand. Hasan told one person not to worry. He assured the other it was just a training exercise and the gun shot only paint. He let both live. But moments earlier, dozens of uniformed soldiers received no quarter from Hasan, military prosecutors said Tuesday

as the Army psychiatrist’s long-delayed trial began. Hasan, who admits to killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in the 2009 attack, matter-of-factly told a jury of 13 officers that he was the gunman. “The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter,” he said, calmly delivering an opening statement that lasted little more than a minute. His only utterance of regret was toward his religion for being among the “imperfect Muslims trying to establish the perfect religion.” “I apologize for any

mistakes I made in this endeavor,” said Hasan, an American-born 42-yearold who was paralyzed after being shot by officers responding to the attack. Hasan planned the assault for months, prosecutor Col. Steve Henricks said, describing how Hasan stockpiled bullets, practiced at a shooting range and bought an extender kit so his pistol could hold more bullets. If convicted, Hasan faces the death penalty. No American soldier has been executed since 1961, and military prosecutors showed

Elmore Leonard suffers stroke DETROIT (AP) — Acclaimed crime novelist Elmore Leonard is recovering at a hospital following a stroke last week. Leonard’s longtime researcher, Gregg Sutter, Leonard said Tuesday that family members are guardedly optimistic about the 87-yearold author’s condition. Leonard lives in suburban Detroit. He has written 45 Westerns, crime novels and mysteries. Sutter says Leonard has been at work on No. 46. Many of his books — notably “Out of Sight,” ”Get Shorty” and “Be Cool” — have become films.

People • Juan Pablo Galavis the new Bachelor NEW YORK (AP) — What Juan Pablo Galavis lacked in airtime on “The Bachelorette,” he made up in popularity among viewers. Now the former pro soccer Galavis player will be ABC’s next “Bachelor,” where 25 women begin the show vying for his heart. The 32-year-old was born in Ithaca, N.Y., but moved to Venezuela when he was 2. He returned to the U.S. to play college soccer and then went pro. “Bachelorette” Desiree Hartsock rejected Galavis, sending him home on the show’s sixth episode.

right from their opening statements that they will take no chance of fumbling details that could jeopardize any conviction down the line. They described a calculating Hasan, armed with two handguns and carrying paper towels in his pants pockets to conceal the sounds of rattling ammunition as he walked through a deployment-readiness center on the sprawling base. “He came to believe he had a jihad duty to murder his fellow soldiers,” Henricks said, adding that Hasan researched Taliban leaders’ call to wage holy

war. The government has also said Hasan sent more than a dozen emails starting in December 2008 to Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical U.S.-born Islamic cleric killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. The shooting happened about three weeks after Hasan learned he would be deploying to Afghanistan. Upon getting the orders that he was going overseas, Hasan told a base doctor that, “They’ve got another thing coming if they think they are going to deploy me,” Henricks said.

Gunmen kill 13 bus passengers in Pakistan QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) — Dozens of gunmen disguised in police uniforms shot to death 13 people they pulled off of a convoy of buses in southwest Pakistan and dumped their bodies in a nearby ravine, officials said Tuesday. The motive for the attack Monday night was unclear since no one has claimed responsibility. But suspicion may fall on separatists who have been waging a low-level insurgency in southwest Baluchistan province for decades. The buses were headed to central Punjab province, and the separatists have a history of attacking Punjabis who they view as outsiders encroaching on their independence. The province is also home to many Islamic militants who have carried out attacks in the past, especially on minority Shiite Muslims.

Post-Romney, some in GOP reject advice to moderate WASHINGTON (AP) — After Mitt Romney’s 2012 loss, many senior Republicans concluded the party must moderate its image on issues such as immigration and reproductive rights. But some GOP lawmakers have done the opposite. They imposed new restrictions on abortion in several states. They are strongly resisting a broad immigration bill in the U.S. House. They’re waging a steady assault on “Obamacare,” with some House and Senate Republicans vowing to shut down the government if that’s what it takes to choke off the health care law Congress enacted in 2010. These trends worry establishment Republicans. And they expose a growing split in the GOP, which is driven more by campaign strategy than ideology. One side focuses chiefly on presidential elections, saying that Republicans must change course to compete in 2016 and beyond after having lost the popular vote in five of the last six contests. The other side is a congressional wing, driven largely by House conservatives focused on their own elections, and determined to avoid primary challenges from the right. To an extent not mirrored among Democrats, these two GOP wings sometimes work against each other. For instance, a Republican Party- sanctioned study of Romney’s loss concluded the party must embrace “comprehensive immigration reform” to stem losses among Hispanic voters nationwide. The Senate has passed such a bill, which would create a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrants living here illegally. But dozens of House Republicans oppose it, because their conservative supporters dislike what they consider “amnesty” for law breakers. In tone, if not always in substance, a number of elected Republicans seem to be edging farther right — and toward greater combativeness with President Barack Obama — on numerous issues. For nearly two decades,

Republicans shunned the idea of shutting down the federal government in budget disputes with Democratic presidents. They recalled the two partial shutdowns in the mid-1990s that angered many Americans, who in turn blamed Republicans more than President Bill Clinton and his fellow Democrats. Now, however, prominent Republicans are urging colleagues to close the government temporarily this fall — by refusing to fund federal operations beyond Sept. 30 — if that’s the only way to cut off money for Obama’s health care law. Ted Cruz of Texas, one of the dozen Republican senators who signed a letter to that effect, says the mid-1990s experience wasn’t so bad. The predicted “parade of horribles,” Cruz said in a recent Senate speech, “did not occur. Social Security checks continued to flow. The military continued to be funded….Planes didn’t fall out of the sky.” Cruz taunted fellow Republicans who denounce Obama’s health care law but refuse to shutter the government to block it. “If

you fund it, you’re for it,” he said. Some senior House and Senate Republicans call Cruz’s plan political suicide. They say it could cost the GOP control of the House in next year’s elections. Democratic activist Brad Woodhouse said of Cruz’s efforts: “Please, Lord, bring it on!” Abortion is another issue that has tripped up some high-profile Republican candidates. Two Senate nominees lost competitive races last year after making explosive comments about pregnancies resulting from rape. Establishment Republicans said the two men did not speak for the party. But Democrats used the incidents to argue the GOP is insensitive to women’s rights in areas that include access to abortion. This year, several Republican-controlled state governments have tightened abortion regulations. Some have outlawed abortions 20 weeks after conception. Wisconsin, which tilts Democratic in presidential elections, now requires women to get an ultrasound before having an abortion.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jeff Bezos turned selling books online into a multibillion-dollar business that has changed retailing forever. Many are now anxious to see if Bezos can do the same for the media industry, after Bezos the Amazon. com founder announced he is buying The Washington Post and other newspapers for $250 million. Monday’s news of the sale to the 49-yearold pioneer of Internet commerce came as a shock to observers, many of whom thought the Graham family would never sell. It also sparked hope among the ranks of reporters beset by seemingly endless cutbacks. Among his champions are the members of the family selling the paper, including publisher Katharine Weymouth, who promised to stay on as publisher. As some journalists shed tears, others expressed optimism. “Jeff Bezos seems to me exactly the kind of inventive and innovative choice needed to bring about a recommitment to great journalism,” said Carl Bernstein, whose

co-reporting of the Watergate scandal in the early 1970s cemented the newspaper’s identity as a political watchdog. But The Post, like most newspapers, has been losing readers and advertisers to the Internet while watching its value plummet. The paper has cut its newsroom staff repeatedly in recent years and closed several bureaus. Many see Bezos, whose fortune was valued at $25 billion by Forbes magazine, as being rich enough to sustain the losses the newspaper will likely face over the next few years. Bezos is buying the newspaper as an individual. Amazon.com Inc. is not involved. Bezos said to Post employees in a letter distributed to the media that he’d be keeping his “day job” as Amazon CEO and a life in “the other Washington” where Amazon’s headquarters are based in Seattle. But he made clear there would be changes, if unforeseen ones, coming. “The Internet is transforming almost every element of the news business: shortening news cycles, eroding long-reliable revenue sources, and enabling new kinds of competition, some of which bear little or no news-gathering costs,” Bezos wrote.

I am not interested in baby-sitting these people so their wives won’t have to put up with them. What should I do? — RETIRED IN BOSTON DEAR RETIRED: Tell your relatives — nicely — that you have a definite routine and things scheduled that you must attend to.

Walk-in clinics no sub for primary care for simple problems such as sinusitis or a urinary tract infection. No one likes to wait. You can walk into a retail health clinic without an appointment, and many clinics are open nights and weekends. What’s more, health ASK insurance DOCTOR K. covers all — or a percentage — the costs Dr. Anthony of of services at Komaroff provided these clinics, just as it does for care delivered at a doctor’s office. If you’re hurting and your own doctor is not available, retail health clinics have

their place. They are most appropriate when you have a simple health condition that needs immediate medical attention — a respiratory or urinary tract infection, for example. But it’s important that your medical record from this visit reaches your primary care doctor, and that often doesn’t happen. For more complicated or ongoing medical issues, health clinics are not a substitute for a doctor’s office. The doctors, nurse practitioners and physicians’ assistants in those clinics probably won’t have access to your records. They won’t know what medical conditions you have, the results of your laboratory tests, the medicines you’re on or whether you have drug allergies. They need to know that information to give you good care. “What’s the problem,” you might ask? “I can simply give them that information.”

DEAR DOCTOR K: What do you think of the walk-in health clinics that are popping up? Can I use them instead of going to my regular doctor? DEAR READER: You ask a timely question. More and more Americans are turning to retail health clinics — walk-in medical facilities located in pharmacies, grocery stores and retailers. My one-sentence answer to your question is that it’s a shame they have become necessary. That’s because I believe the best answer is for every person to have a primary care physician who knows them, and to bring all health problems to that doctor. So why are people going to these walk-in clinics? The most obvious reason is that we haven’t trained enough primary care doctors, and the ones we have are very busy. As the number of primary care doctors shrinks, patients must wait longer to see a doctor

EMPLOYED: I am not excusing poor manners, and I do sympathize with your position. But when companies make these incessant calls, they are entering people’s homes being DEAR without invited, and ABBY it can make some of them very angry, Jeanne Phillips particularly if they have been interrupted while eating, working or napping. The people you call might be less hostile if they hadn’t been called repeatedly and asked to participate in these surveys after they had refused four, five or six times and had asked not to be called again.

Maybe. But ask yourself if you could, right now off the top of your head, list all of your medical conditions, the results of your most recent laboratory tests, all of the medicines you are taking and every drug you have an allergic reaction to. Retail health clinics are often staffed by nurse practitioners, not doctors. Nurse practitioners are required to follow specific care guidelines, and they must keep meticulous records on the care they’ve provided. Any time you visit a health clinic, get a printed copy of your health record. Health clinics keep excellent medical records. But it’s up to you to make sure they get to your primary care doctor so that all of your health records are in one place. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Senators urge release of Egyptian Islamists

Obama pitches mortgage overhaul PHOENIX (AP) — Buoyed by an improving housing market, President Barack Obama on Tuesday proposed a broad overhaul of the nation’s mortgage finance system, including winding down government-backed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He declared that taxpayers should never again be left “holding the bag” for the mortgage giants’ bad bets. Obama outlined his proposals in Phoenix, the once foreclosure-riddled city at the epicenter of the nation’s housing crisis. The housing market in Phoenix, as well as in many other parts of the country, has rebounded robustly, with prices in the southwestern city up 66 percent from the low point in 2011. Despite the nationwide gains, the president said sweeping housing reforms are still needed to ensure that a rejuvenated market doesn’t simply “re-inflate the housing bubble.” The cornerstone of that effort is winding down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, a proposal with bipartisan support in the Senate. “For too long, these companies were allowed to make big profits buying mortgages, knowing that if their bets went bad,

taxpayers would be left holding the bag,” Obama told a crowd of more than 2,000 at an area high school. He spoke following a tour of a construction company that has been able to hire hundreds of new workers as a result of the region’s housing comeback. While the president has previously endorsed overhauling Fannie and Freddie, his remarks Tuesday marked the first time he outlined his specific proposals for doing so. The president wants to replace Fannie and Freddie with a system that would put the private sector, not the government, primarily at risk for loans. The government would still be involved, both in oversight and as a last-resort loan guarantor. Obama is also seeking guarantees that a private sector-led mortgage finance system would still ensure wide homeowner access to popular 30-year mortgages at fixed rates. Making light of criticism from Republicans who have cast him as a big-spending liberal, Obama joked that his calls for deeper private sector involvement “must sound confusing to the folks who call me a socialist.” Obama’s mortgage

might otherwise be harmed. “Some in Congress want to sever the relationship. Some want to suspend the aid,” he said. “We have to be honest to where the relationship stands. … We can’t support Egypt that is not moving to democracy.” Egypt’s new government has held firm to a political road map announced July 3, when the military ousted Morsi following mass protests calling on him to step down. U.S. and other international officials have urged the inclusion of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood in the political process going forward. Top Egyptian officials said reconciliation is a priority but only after the Brotherhood renounces violence. They cite sectarian violence in southern Egypt, cases of torture of anti-Morsi protesters and the blocking of main roads. Ahmed el-Musalamani, a spokesman for interim president Adly Mansour, told reporters that “foreign pressure has exceeded international standards.” He said Egypt will protect “the revolution” — referring to June 30, the day hundreds of thousands of Egyptians revolted against Morsi’s rule.
