GOOD MORNING Dog missing after accident sought TOPEKA — Animal control officials are looking for a 2-year old female brindle Old English Bulldog named Joy that escaped from a van that was involved in an accident near Topeka Monday afternoon. The van’s driver, Amos Yoder, was killed in the accident. According to Ark Animal Sanctuary director Yancey Painter, the two dogs were riding in travel crates in the back of the Yoder’s van. Yoder was northbound on State Road 5 near C.R. 635S when police said he crossed the centerline and was hit an oncoming truck. The force of the impact opened the cages the dogs were riding in, as well as the van’s rear door, allowing the female dog to run away. Painter said the two dogs were not Yoder’s property, but that he was transporting them for their owners. The male dog was found at the scene, suffering from stress. He was transported to the Ark Animal Sanctuary and reunited with his family Tuesday morning. Anyone who sees the missing dog should contact the animal sanctuary at 463-4142.

Indy police may get body cameras INDIANAPOLIS — Officers in the Indiana Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department may be equipped with tiny “body cameras,” according to news reports. Homeland Security Chief Gary Coons told the Indianapolis Star the department has already tried it with a handful of officers during large events. About the size of a pen-light flashlight, the cameras can be clipped around the ear or jiggered onto a shirt lapel.

Obama trying diplomacy first WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama told the nation from the White House on Wednesday night that diplomacy suddenly holds “the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons” in Syria without use of force, but he declared the U.S. military will “be ready to respond” against President Bashar Assad if other measures fail. For now, Obama said he had asked congressional leaders to postpone a vote on legislation he

has been seeking to authorize the use of military force against Syria. In a 16-minute speech, the president repeatedly offered Obama reassurances that even the failure of diplomacy — in promised talks at the United Nations or elsewhere — would not plunge America into another war.

“I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria,” he promised. “I will not pursue an open-ended action like Iraq or Afghanistan. I will not pursue a prolonged air campaign like Libya or Kosovo.” “This would be a targeted strike to achieve a clear objective: deterring the use of chemical weapons and degrading Assad’s capabilities,” he said. The speech capped a frenzied 10-day stretch of events that began

when he unexpectedly announced he was stepping back from a threatened military strike and instead asking Congress first to pass legislation authorizing the use of such force against Assad. With public opinion polls consistently showing widespread opposition to American military intervention, the White House has struggled mightily to generate support among lawmakers — liberal Democrats and conservaSEE OBAMA, PAGE A6

Merit scholar semifinalists picked Stutzman no surprise choice at Westview, principal says

Honor part of glowing resume for WN senior


SHIPSHEWANA — Westview senior Kimberly Stutzman seemed a little surprised when she learned Monday that she’d been named a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist. Her principal, Rich Cory, said he wasn’t surprised as all. “She is driven to succeed,” Cory said of Stutzman. “She’s been that way since she was a freshman. I’ve very proud of her, and I think this says a lot about her family.” Stutzman, 17, of Shipshewana, is the daughter of Michael and Kristine Stutzman, the eldest of their five children. Cory said its not unusual to see Kimberly lending her parents a hand shuttling her siblings to and from school or sports games. “I was really surprised that I made it,” she said Tuesday morning at school, explaining that she believed another classmate of hers at the LaGrange County school would be named a semifinalist, not her. The distinction of Merit semifinalist goes to less than 1 percent of the nation’s high school seniors, based on scores in a nationwide test. About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and more than half of the finalists will win National Merit Scholarships. Stutzman said she’s always enjoyed school, because she enjoys learning. “I’ve always been a bit of an overachiever,” Stutzman said, “and maybe a perfectionist. I always want to do things right.” In addition to her schoolwork, she said she enjoys working with her mother in her mother’s fabric store, participating in the school’s show choir, musicals and theater, and she loves to travel. “I’ve been to Europe twice,” she said with a broad smile. Cory described Stutzman is one of the most disciplined students he’s seen come through the high school. “Kimberly’s never mad, always upbeat,” he said. “She’s a hard worker and always does the right thing.”



Westview senior Kimberly Stutzman is a semifinalist in the prestigious National Merit Scholarship competition.

Although the school won’t make the announcement until spring, Stutzman believes she is one of three students in the running to be named valedictorian of the class of 2014. She plans to enroll in college after graduation and pursue a degree in education. Stutzman said she discovered her love of teaching by enrolling as a Westview cadet teacher, spending one class period each day assisting an elementary school teacher firsthand. Stutzman said she still hasn’t decided where to go to college, but said that she hopes the prestige of being a named a Merit Scholarship semifinalist will help her win a college scholarship.

LIGONIER — Sam Hagen, a senior at West Noble High School, is his school’s first National Merit Scholarship semifinalist in several years. And the accomplishment is just one more impressive bullet point on his resume. Hagen, son of Mark and Jeanna Hagen of Cromwell, stays active in his school, the community and his church, St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Syracuse. Hagen Earlier this summer, he received the prestigious Youth Community Service award from the Ligonier Chamber of Commerce. It’s the teenagers’ version of citizen of the year. “He’s just one of those quality young men who will do well in life,” said Greg Baker, principal at West Noble High School. “Sam’s a student who we can go to when we need something, and he’ll always give you his best. He knows what he wants to do in life, and that’s what you want to see, as an educator.” A student does not make it to semifinalist status in the National Merit program without hard work and dedication; two qualities SEE HONOR, PAGE A6

Gathering weapons presents problems BEIRUT (AP) — Russia’s proposal to place Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile under international control for dismantling would involve a lengthy and complicated operation made more difficult by a deep lack of trust — not to mention the lack of an inventory. Syria is believed by experts to have 1,000 tons of chemical warfare agents scattered over several dozen sites across the country, and just getting them

Rome City plans sewer extension to proposed winery BY DENNIS NARTKER

ROME CITY — Rome City will extend sewer service to the Schermerhorn Farms property on Northport Road, where the owners plan a winery and brewery. The Rome City Town Council Monday night hired D. A. Brown Engineering to design the approximately 1,125-foot, 2-inch diameter forced main. The city’s cost of the project will be about $40,000, and Schermerhorn Farms will pay about $20,500. The city’s portion of the cost includes engineering and meter installation. The sewer line’s route will extend from a lift station south of the town, heading north under the west side of S.R. 9 to Northport Road, then west along the south side of Northport Road and under the road to the winery property. In September 2012, Nathan and Rachel Schermerhorn of Wawaka purchased 129 acres of the 197-acre Sylvan Springs property from Westrick LLC, a lien-holding company in Fort Wayne. Westrick retains ownership of the approximately 68 acres of historic Sylvan Springs on the south side of Northport Road that includes most of the buildings. Schermerhorn Farms’ purchase included the farmland and a 100-foot long, two-story barn on the north side of Northport Road. At the time, the Schermerhorns, along with Rachel’s brother and his wife, Nicholas and Cyndi Martz, announced plans to open a winery and brewery at the location. Rome City officials welcomed the proposal. The town plans to

annex the Schermerhorn Farms property, said Town Manager Leigh Pranger. The sewer extension project will be done in the spring after easements have been secured, she added. The council also learned the Indiana Department of Natural Resources is considering a proposal from a group of float plane owners to designate a float plane landing area in Sylvan Lake’s Cain basin. Pranger explained the group submitted a proposal last year, but the DNR rejected it because the landing area needed to be at least one mile long. The minimum length has since been reduced to a one-half mile by the state. “It will be the pilot’s responsibility to make sure no one is in the landing zone when the plane is landing,” Pranger told the council. Friday is the deadline for submitting comments to the DNR about the proposed float plane landing zone. Permission still is needed from the Federal Aviation Administration for the designated area, according to Pranger. In other business, the council: • approved its 2014 advertised budget of $849,163, which will go to the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance for final review. • announced Halloween trick-or-treat hours will be Thursday, Oct. 31, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. • approved spending $1,000 to $1,350 to add a soft color hue to the sidewalk being installed along the east side of S.R. 9 in the town. • heard Councilman Ben Castle request a council review of the town’s noise and peddler ordinances for possible updating.

INDIANAPOLIS — Schools and parents throughout the state are encouraged to help students walk or bike to school on National Walk to School Day, Wednesday, Oct. 9. The Indiana Safe Routes to School Partnership and Health by Design is leading the campaign. “Walking to school used to be common, but today the number of students walking or biking to school is at an all-time low,” said Kim Irwin, the Indiana Safe Routes to School Partnership and Health by Design coordinator.

The percentage of children walking or biking to school has dropped from approximately 50 percent in 1969 to 13 percent in 2009, according to Irwin. Walking and biking provide benefits and reduce neighborhood traffic congestion, household costs and auto emissions, Irwin said. The Safe Routes partnership knows safety is a critical concern and has suggestions for ensuring the safest routes, according to Irwin.

Prairie Heights seeking 50th anniversary items BY JENNIFER DECKER

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — The Prairie Heights School Corp. is looking for historical items telling the story of its storied 50 years in education as a community center. This year marks the corporation’s 50th anniversary and Prairie Heights Superintendent Alan Middleton said the public’s help is sought in sharing historical items. “It’s a celebration of 50 years. We want to show kids the history from 1963-65,” he said. Over the years, the corporation was formed with the consolidation of country schools in Orland, Flint, Salem and Mongo in 1963. While those four schools are gone, Middleton said the look back through history causes a reflection on what was and how it came to be. During that time, Middleton said the corporation has long been characterized by being close knit with an emphasis on agriculture. “Agriculture has always been our strong point. We have the largest school farm east of the Mississippi” River, he said. “There’s been excellent leadership and an opportunity for kids. Agriculture was the vocation.” In addition, he noted the

Middleton said the anniversary has nothing to do with his retirement in heading the corporation, which will come at the end of the current academic year. Neither are related. “We need to step back. Our goal is to put up pictures. If there’s any pictures of construction — that’d be great,” he said. Middleton said the gathering of the corporation’s history is rather interesting, as he and his staff don’t know what will be brought in. “We had someone come in the other day with a Salem letter jacket,” he said. “We got a yearbook.” Those who would like to lend any mementos of Prairie

Middleton said copies of photos from originals can be made at the office. Plans are being finalized to further celebrate the corporation’s history. Once those are finalized, the details will be announced. “There will be a night we’ll use to spearhead it,” Middleton said. “The goal is to get artifacts on display.”

When pressed, he also admits that his least favorite subject English, saying “I’m good at it, but I don’t enjoy it.” After high school, Hagen plans on attending Purdue University for chemical or nuclear engineering. His extracurricular activities include being a computer programmer for the West Noble robotics team. As a ninth- and 10th-grader, Hagen was a youth representative on the grant-review committee of

the Dekko Foundation. If Hagen advances to Merit finalist status, he will compete for 8,000 National Merit Scholarships worth about $35 million that will be offered next spring. Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to finalist status. About 90 percent of semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and more than half of the finalists will win National Merit Scholarships. The nationwide pool of semifinalists represents less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors, based on scores in a national qualifying test last year.

President Bashar Assad’s regime is said to have one of the world’s largest stockpiles of chemical weapons, including mustard gas and the nerve gas sarin. There have been longstanding concerns that the embattled leader might unleash them on a

larger scale, transfer some of them to the militant Lebanese Hezbollah group, or that the chemical agents could fall into the hands of al-Qaida militants among the rebels. Many are skeptical that the Syrian regime would follow through on its commitments. The government has typically accepted last-minute deals with the international community to buy time, then argued over the details or fell back on its promises. Most recently, Syria called for an immediate U.N. investigation into an alleged chemical attack near Aleppo in March.

Briefly • Suh fined $100,000 DETROIT (AP) — Ndamukong Suh’s latest controversial play drew a hefty fine. The Detroit defensive tackle was docked $100,000 by the NFL for his illegal low block on Minnesota center John Sullivan in the Lions’ season-opening victory Sunday. Suh hit Sullivan during an interception return by Detroit linebacker DeAndre Levy, and the penalty negated what would have been a touchdown. NFL spokesman Randall Liu said Tuesday that vice president of football operations Merton Hanks notified Suh of the fine. Suh was not in the locker room at Detroit’s practice facility when it was open to reporters Tuesday. A text message was sent to him seeking comment.

Lakers outlast WN Warriors sweep Angola in key NECC matchup BY BOB BUTTGEN

LIGONIER — Lakeland’s volleyball team stayed undefeated in the Northeast Corner Conference at the expense of the West Noble Chargers Tuesday night. It took the Lakers five close sets before they could leave the West Noble gym with the victory. Scores were 15-25, 25-22, 25-23, 22-25, 15-11. West Noble won the first game, before Lakeland tied the match at 1-1 with a win in game 2. Lakeland also captured the third game before the Chargers claimed the fourth game, sending the match to the fifth-game decider. “We served the ball really well, especially in that fifth set,” Lakeland coach Brent Miller said. “We were able to keep them on their toes and were able to make it hard for them (West Noble) to get the ball to their setter. “We had a lot of girls come through for us tonight. Ashtin Kaminer really showed her leadership out there tonight. Abi Thompson had some great serves for us,” Miller added. Thompson’s serving was red-hot in the rubber match as the Lakers scored the final five points of the night with Thompson serving. Game 5 was tied six times, with the final knot coming at 11-all. But that’s also when Thompson started her serve and the Lakers ran the final five points off for the win. Lakeland’s players dedicated the game to teammate Cori Vaughn. Her grandmother passed away earlier in the day and Vaughn was not at the match. “They really wanted to win this one for Cori,” Miller said. Lakeland is 4-10 overall and 2-0 in the NECC. The Chargers fell to 0-4 in the conference and 1-9 on the season. Lakeland is home Thursday against East Noble. West Noble is home Monday in an NECC match against Hamilton. West Noble won the junior varsity match, 25-10, 25-12. Kaylie Warble had nine kills for the Chargers while Megan Pearsall served up four aces. Angola at Westview Westview defeated Angola 25-17, 25-9, 25-14 in an NECC contest. Breann Bushong had 10 kills,

Royals top Tribe CLEVELAND (AP) — Jeremy Guthrie got a major assist from his defense in pitching six innings, Alcides Escobar hit a rare home run and the Kansas City Royals snapped a six-game losing streak in Cleveland, 6-3 on Tuesday night to close on the Indians and two others in the AL’s cramped wild-card scramble. Guthrie (14-10) allowed just one run and nine hits, but was helped by three double plays. With the win and Tampa Bay’s loss, Kansas City pulled within three games of a wild-card spot. The Royals also got a game tighter to the Indians, who dropped to 6-3 in September. Mike Moustakas hit a two-run double in the sixth off Zach McAllister (7-9) and the won’t-goaway Royals won for the 12th time in 17 games. Kansas City had lost seven in a row before this stretch and was on the verge of falling from the race. But the Royals are still hanging around in the wide-open playoff chase, and could still have a say in the AL Central with three games later this week at first-place Detroit. Royals reliever Luke Hochevar struck out all five batters he faced, and closer Greg Holland worked a perfect ninth for his 41st save. Guthrie wasn’t overpowering, but he didn’t allow a walk and let his defense get him out of trouble. Kansas City’s infield turned double plays in the third, fourth and sixth innings to back the right-hander, who won for just the second time in seven starts.

Eagles rule run BY JAMES FISHER

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — Fremont harriers left no doubt who was in charge at Tuesday’s Steuben County Run. The Fremont boys and girls cross country teams came away from the event with the top team scores and first-place finishes in both events. David Schmucker won the boys race in a time of 18:47. Eagle senior Abby Hostetler claimed the girls race in 21:06. The Eagles swept the top five spots in both races. Hostetler is a three-time state qualifier. “The goal this season is to get on the podium,” said Hostetler, whose best finish in the state meet is 15th. “It would also be nice to get the team through.” From the looks of Tuesday’s meet, that just might be a possibility. Hostetler was followed by teammate Katie Culler in 21:34, with Eagle Courtney Woosley placing third in 22:02. Fourth and fifth went to Fremont’s Makenna Cade (23:29) and Riley Welch (23:49). Prairie Heights runners took the next three spots, with Katie Cooper, Aspen Dirr and Christy Scott each crossing the finish line in 26:13. Angola followed with the next six finishers, led by Alexis Buck and Josey Korte in 28:49. Right behind were Hannah Siders, Maria Clemens, Janna Olson and Emily Barge. The Hornets were second in the girls team standings. Schmucker controlled the boys race on an extremely hot day. “I practiced in my warm-ups to prepare,” Schmucker explained. It was Schmucker’s first win of the season. He crossed the line in 18:47. He was followed by Christian Barrow (21:09), Sam Stuckey (22:17), Cooper Wall (22:17) and Hunter Price (22:17). Prairie Heights was second in the boys team standings. Angola was disqualified for a violation with the team’s shorts. PHOTOS BY JAMES FISHER Mitch Perkins led Prairie Heights in a time of 22:38.

U.S. soccer wins, closing in on World Cup berth COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The United States closed in on its seventh straight World Cup appearance, beating regional rival Mexico 2-0 Tuesday night on second-half goals by Eddie Johnson and Landon Donovan before a raucous red-white-and-blue-clad crowd that stood and chanted from start to finish. After withstanding Mexican pressure for the first 20 minutes, the U.S. settled into the match and got the breakthrough in the 49th minute when Johnson outjumped defender Diego Reyes to meet Donovan’s corner kick 8 yards out and head the ball past frozen goalkeeper Jesus Corona. With Mexican shifting to an offense-minded 3-4-3 formation, the U.S. scored in the 78th following a throw in when Mix Diskerud threaded the ball across the goalmouth. Clint Dempsey touched it as it went by to Donovan, who poked it in from 2 yards. The U.S. (5-2-1) moved into first place in the North and Central American and Caribbean finals with 16 points, one ahead of Costa Rica (4-1-3), which was held to a 1-1 tie at last-place Jamaica. The top three teams qualify, and third-place Honduras had a 2-1 lead over Panama in the second half Tuesday night. The U.S. would clinch if the Catrachos got a victory or even a draw. Mexico (1-2-5) is fourth and likely headed to a playoff against Oceania champion New Zealand. U.S. players, many carrying large American flags on sticks, celebrated their win with a lap around the field, saluting the crowd the whole way. Then they went to the locker room to wait out the Honduras

game. About 1,000 fans stuck around to watch on the videoboard, hoping for another party. Following wins over Mexico in qualifiers by identical 2-0 scores at Columbus Crew Stadium in 2001, 2005 and 2009, the U.S. Soccer Federation picked the same venue for this year’s match. The capacity crowd of 24,584 taunted the Mexicans with chants of “Dos a cero!” and “You’re not going to Brazil!” Fans were so loud during “The Star-Spangled Banner” that anthem singer Kayleigh Schofield was forced to alter her tempo to match that of the crowd. Johnson nearly scored off Donovan’s cross in the third minute of the second half, but the pass was just ahead of him. A minute later, the U.S. took just its second corner kick of the match. Jermaine Jones and Johnson both broke in from behind the penalty spot, and Mexico was slow to react as Johnson scored in 12th goal in 21 qualifying appearances. He was mobbed by teammates near the U.S. bench as fans set off a smoke bomb. Donovan’s goal, increasing his national team record to 57, set off a nonstop singalong for the closing minutes of the match. Dempsey missed a penalty kick in second-half injury time, just before the final whistle. Dealing with an injury to midfielder Michael Bradley and yellow-card suspensions of defender Matt Besler, midfielder Geoff Cameron and forward Jozy Altidore, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann had to make several changes from Friday’s 2-1 loss at Costa Rica.

AHS clinches NECC season crown MIDDLEBURY — Angola clinched the Northeast Corner Conference regular season title with a 195-200 victory over Fairfield on Monday on Meadow Valley. “It was a nailbiter for the first six holes with Fairfield and Angola running shot for shot and putt for putt,” Hornets coach Joan Sanborn said. “It was the last three holes that decided the winner. “Fairfield is a great team and it was a sweet victory.” AHS (8-3, 4-0 NECC) defeated the Falcons 57-63 over the final three holes.

Sailing Albright wins Laser regatta LAKE GEORGE — The Laser sailors enjoyed one final 2013 competition on Saturday afternoon. Twelve skippers participated in six short races in the third annual Lake George Laser Regatta. The regatta chair, Jack Stiefel of Lake George, planned a variety of courses including a triangle, a windward/leeward, and a combination with one lap triangle and one lap windward/leeward. Stiefel and John Albright, of Indianapolis, set the course buoys to accommodate either type of course. The predominantly southwest wind varied from 5 to 8 mph. Following the third race the wind died, so the skippers sailed to shore for a short rest with refreshments. After about 15 minutes, the wind picked up again for the final three races. The competitors included four females and eight males. Three of the sailors were Lake George Laser Regatta rookies, and this was the first Laser competition of any kind for one of the females. Larry Loy and Becky Mahuren, both of Lake George, staffed the committee boat, timed the starting signals and recorded the orders of finish. Denny Mahuren, in a Boston Whaler, served as patrol/rescue boat. There were a number of capsizes, but fortunately those skippers were able to right their boats and continue racing. Points were awarded to each skipper based on the finishing position in each race. Then the worst finish was deleted. When the final standings were calculated, the top three skippers were tied with 12 points each. They had each won two of the six races. To break the tie, their finishes were ranked in order to see whose finishes were best overall. In first place was Albright, who had two firsts, a second, a third and a fifth. Nancy Stiefel was second with two firsts, two fourths and a second. Steve Kindler was third with two firsts, two thirds and a fourth. Plaques were awarded to the top three contenders at a gathering Saturday evening at the Lake George Retreat. Each participant also received a T-shirt. The 2013 season trophies were also awarded to the summer’s top three skippers. Jack Stiefel was first with Jeff Smith second and Albright third. Albright was elected commodore for the 2014 season.

When is the right thing not right? Say you are the biggest, toughest guy on your block. We’re talking NFL linebacker big. We are talking $2 steak tough. You are outside, walking around the block, taking the old pythons for a stroll, when you see the guy across the street beating his son with a whip. Now the guy across the street, let’s just call him Assad for grins and giggles, is not nearly as big as you are. He is not nearly as tough. So Assad is basically a normal guy and you are former Chicago Bears’ linebacker Brian Urlacher. MATT What would you do? What is your duty as a GETTS resident of the neighborhood? What is your moral obligation? Do you mind your own business? I mean, it’s not your 10-year-old that’s being beaten, after all. Do you call the police at 800-UNITEDNATIONS, knowing full well that a couple of the cops happen to Does the right thing really like become wrong if there Mr. Assad and would are consequences? pretty much let him run amok in his own neighborhood without batting an eyelash? Do you take the whip away and let Assad beat his child with his fists? Do you pummel Assad so that he is no longer able to raise a hand, much less a whip, to the child? Or do you just look the other way and pretend it isn’t happening? That is the scenario Americans are facing in regards to assertions that Syria’s regime has used chemical weapons on its own citizens. That’s right, it’s the scenario we are facing. Not just the president. Not just the Congress. But us. The voting — and non-voting — public. The will of the people. We have a say, here, and maybe an obligation to have our voices be heard. The Italian writer Dante Alighieri famously penned in his work “The Inferno,” “The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.” So what is the fix? The Assad/Urlacher scenario is admittedly overly simplistic. What happens if we jump in and the entire Middle East explodes? In our scenario, what if 20 Assad relatives attack Urlacher? What if they wait until Urlacher is at work and attack his children when he’s away? Only complicating the situation is how political the decision has become. A doveish Democratic president is arguing for military intervention, and Republicans, who normally talk guns and bombs at the drop of a hat, are vehemently opposed. The thing Americans should be asking themselves is whether the scenario is really overly simplistic at all. Do we contemplate excuses not to the do the right thing? Are our “complications” a way to abdicate responsibility? Does the right thing become wrong if there are consequences? The right thing is always the right thing. If it were easy, everyone would do it. For just a moment, forget you are Urlacher. For just a moment, pretend you are that 10-year-old boy being beaten with a whip. How terrifying that would feel. What is our obligation to that 10-year-old boy and to those that will follow if we do nothing? The answer will say less about us as a geopolitical entity than it will our souls. We should take the whip from Assad’s hand.

Bison migrating west created first road Bison made Indiana’s first highway. It started at the Falls of the Ohio near modern-day Clarksville where the beasts came together to cross the Ohio River at its shallowest point. It ended near Vincennes where they scattered to graze on Illinois prairie grass. If you look closely, you can still see signs of the Buffalo Trace. “You kind of have to know what you’re looking for,” says Teena Ligman, public affairs specialist for the U.S. Forest Service. She describes the remnants as trail beds or trenches that, to an untrained eye, might appear the work of human labor rather than hooves. Archaeologists aren’t sure exactly when the trail appeared, but they suspect thousands of bison traversed it during their seasonal migration from Kentucky salt licks to feeding grounds on the prairie. The trail’s width ranged from 12 to 20 feet across. The 1910 book “Early Indiana: Trails and Surveys” by George R. Wilson puts the matter in historic perspective: “The trails and traces were great highways over which civilization came into the wilderness. Wild animals often followed the trails, trappers followed the game, and settlers followed the trappers.” It’s fitting that the buffalo — more accurately called bison — is featured so prominently on Indiana’s state seal. Until

1800 or so, bison were abundant over large portions of what would become the Indiana Territory and the state of Indiana. In 1720, the historian Charlevoix, who had traveled extensively in New France and across the Great Lakes region, wrote, “All the country that is watered by the Oaubache (Wabash), and by the Ohio which runs into it, is very fruitful. It of vast meadows, ANDREA consists well watered, where the wild feed by thousands.” NEAL buffalo Settlers mistook the animals for buffalo because they looked so much alike, but it was a misnomer; the American bison is a distant relative. Surveyors in the 1800s often drew the Trace and adjacent buffalo wallows on Indiana maps. A 1910 history of Dubois County by Wilson described the wallow remnants as “big circular patches, where the grass was greener, thicker and higher than anywhere else around.” Wallows were essentially huge mud puddles dug out by bison in order to take cooling baths. Though the bison disappeared, their route was put to good use. Archaeologists believe it

served as a trade route for Native Americans. Pioneers followed it west. In the early 19th century, a stagecoach line ran the length of the Trace from New Albany to Vincennes. Much of it was eventually paved over as U.S. 150. Today, there’s scant evidence of the Trace. There’s a spot off State Road 37, about six miles south of Paoli, where motorists can see trenches in both directions. Probably the best way to experience the Trace is on the Springs Valley Trail in the Hoosier National Forest southeast of French Lick. A segment of the trail follows the Trace, and attentive hikers may notice other remnants and signs of wallows from centuries ago. This is the seventh in Andrea Neal’s bicentennial series leading up to the celebration of the Indiana Bicentennial in December 2016. The essays will focus on the top 100 events, ideas and historical figures of Indiana. Directions to Springs Valley Trailhead: From French Lick, take Highway 145 south for 6.4 miles, then turn left at the Forest Service sign on Baseline Liberty Road.

His “foreign policy” seems to be more afterthought (or political cynicism) than strategy. Even so, lawmakers, including John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Nancy Pelosi, are lining up to support the president’s plan for missile strikes. Let’s hope that whatever the outcome, our best efforts have been directed by an abundance of caution rather than a prideful attachment to credibility. This is not to say that credibility isn’t important, but the measure of one’s credibility isn’t only whether a nation is willing to stand its ground. It is also whether a nation is willing to be wise. The U.S. still carries the biggest stick. We are still the bravest, most compassionate, generous nation in the history of mankind. When our allies need us, our credibility is beyond reproach. We always act decisively when the stakes are clear. The world knows this. It is our exceptional history, not a single, transitory man, that inspires belief. And sometimes, it is helpful to note, a coiled snake is more effective than one that reflexively strikes.

Bloomberg set for final 9/11 as city’s mayor

Newlywed wife pushes husband face-first off cliff HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A newlywed wife with doubts about her 8-day-old marriage confessed she pushed her husband face-first off a cliff in Glacier National Park, then lied about his death and told authorities he had driven off with friends, court documents said. Federal prosecutors have given their version of what happened to Cody Lee Johnson, 25, two months after his body was found in an area of the park so steep and rugged that a helicopter had to be used in the recovery. Jordan Linn Graham, 22, appeared Monday in federal court in Missoula on a second-degree murder charge in Johnson’s July 7 death. Her attorney, public defender Andrew Nelson, declined to comment. Johnson’s family and friends had called for an investigation since the body was recovered July 12 below the Loop Trail near the sheer cliff drops of the park’s popular Going to the Sun Road.

Golf course cancels nine for $9.11 offer MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin golf course owner who advertised nine holes of golf for $9.11 to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks apologized Tuesday but said he would keep the club open despite a backlash that included death threats. Tumbledown Trails Golf Course near Madison advertised the special in the Wisconsin State Journal newspaper on Monday, saying it was intended to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. The discount, which also included 18 holes of golf for $19.11, was good for the anniversary on Wednesday only. News of the offer spread on social media and the golf course’s Facebook page was overrun with negative comments. Owner and general manager Marc Watts said he received death threats and threats to burn down the family-operated public golf course.

People • Sorrentino on right path after drug addiction NEW YORK (AP) — Former “Jersey Shore” cast member Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino realized he had an addiction problem on a trip to Australia in February 2012. He ran out of a prescription to treat an injury suffered during a 2010 stint on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” “All I had to do was get dressed for a family function and I couldn’t do that,” Sorrentino said. Sorrentino There were rumors at the time that he was battling an addiction to drugs or alcohol but Sorrentino maintains that wasn’t the case and says “those rumors were definitely false. I didn’t mix anything.” Soon after he checked into rehab where doctors prescribed him with a medication to treat opioid addiction. Sorrentino still takes it daily and says that, combined with counseling, is what works best for him. The 32-year-old is now a paid spokesman for Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the company that makes the medication he’s taking. He’s also helped launch a program called Reset Reality, to spread knowledge and understanding of opioid prescription painkiller addictions.


ceremony will include bell-ringing and wreathlaying, officials were gathering Tuesday to mark the start of construction on a visitor center. The Pentagon plans a Wednesday morning ceremony for victims’ relatives and survivors of the attacks, with wreathlaying and remarks from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and other officials, and an afternoon observance for Pentagon workers. Deciding how to mark the anniversary of the worst terror strike in U.S. history was a sensitive task for Bloomberg and other leaders in the months after the attacks, perhaps especially for the then-new mayor. Officials were planning a memorial service for thousands of families from 90 countries, while also setting a tone for how the public would commemorate 9/11. “That was the challenge that we faced, and it was an enormous one,” recalls Jonathan Greenspun, who then was part of Bloomberg’s community affairs unit and now is a political consultant. “There was a recognition, by the mayor, that the ceremony had to transcend typical memorial services and the politics that are sometimes associated with them.” Officials fielded about 4,500 suggestions — including a Broadway parade honoring rescue workers and a one-minute blackout of all Manhattan — before crafting a plan centered on reading names at ground zero. “Our intent is to have a day of observances that are simple and powerful,” Bloomberg said as he and then-Gov. George Pataki announced the plans in 2002.

NEW YORK (AP) — When this year’s Sept. 11 anniversary ceremony unfolds at ground zero, the mayor who has helped orchestrate the observances from their start will be watching for his last time in office. And saying nothing.

U.S. has had quieter weather year — so far WASHINGTON (AP) — After a couple years of wild, deadly and costly weather, the United States is mostly getting a lucky break this year. So far. Summer is almost over, and as of Tuesday morning, not a single hurricane had formed this year. Tornado activity in 2013 is also down around record low levels, while heat waves are fewer and milder than last year, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Meteorologists credit luck, shifts in the high-altitude jet stream, and African winds and dust.

“It’s been great,” said Deke Arndt, climate monitoring chief for NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. “I hope that we ride this pattern out through this year and following years.” There have been eight tropical storms in the Atlantic. Not one has reached the 74 mph wind threshold to become a hurricane, though Tropical Storm Humberto off the coast of Africa is likely to become one soon. If Humberto stays a tropical storm through 8 a.m. EDT today, it will be the latest date for the first

iPad video crucial for Zimmerman LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) — Police investigating a domestic dispute between George Zimmerman and his estranged wife said Tuesday that video from her broken iPad may be crucial evidence in determining whether any charges are filed. Police believe the mobile device captured video of Monday’s dispute at the Lake Mary house where Zimmerman was living, but the former neighborhood watch volunteer smashed it to pieces and it needs to be examined in a crime lab. Without the video or some other piece of independent evidence, legal experts said it will be hard to build a case because Shellie Zimmerman changed her story about her husband threatening her with a gun and decided not to press charges. “I think it’s severely limited if they can’t get anything from an eyewit-

ness or video,” said Randy McCLean, a former prosecutor who now practices criminal defense and family law in central Florida. Shellie Zimmerman, 26, had moved out of the house last month but stopped by with her father Monday to gather some remaining items. Shellie Zimmerman’s father owns the house with his wife. Shellie Zimmerman called 911, saying her estranged husband was in his truck and threatening her and her father with a gun. She also said her husband punched her father in the nose. Hours later, she told police she hadn’t seen a gun. Police said no gun was ever found and the former couple blamed each other for being the aggressor. “The iPad video is going to be paramount in this case,” Zach Hudson, a spokesman for the Lake Mary Police Department.

hurricane of the season since satellites started watching the seas in 1967, according to the National Hurricane Center. This year, overall storm activity in the Atlantic — an index that combines number and strength — is about one-fifth the average. That’s despite warmer-than-normal seas, which usually fuel storms. It has also been a record of nearly eight years since a major hurricane — one with winds of 110 mph — blew ashore in the United States. That was Hurricane Wilma, which hit Florida in October 2005.

Meteorologists say dry, stable and at times dusty air blowing from Africa is choking storms instead of allowing them to grow. On top of that, shifts in the jet stream — the same river of air some blame for wild weather in 2011 and 2012 — have caused dry air and wind shear, which interfere with storm formation, said Gerry Bell of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. Plain old random chance is also a big factor, said MIT meteorology professor Kerry Emanuel. “Nobody’s complaining,” said former National

Hurricane Center director Max Mayfield. Bell and NOAA last month forecast a 70 percent chance of a busier-thannormal hurricane season, with six to nine hurricanes and 13 to 19 named storms. Bell said he is sticking with that forecast because it was just an unusually slow August. People shouldn’t let their guard down because several past seasons have started off slow and ended quite busy and deadly — 1967, 1984, 1988, 1994 and 2002, said Ryan Maue, a meteorologist with the private firm Weather Bell.

Mom’s cellphone video has lingering consequences DEAR ABBY: My 13-year-old son, “Wiley,” was playing a game on my cellphone. I stupidly forgot to delete a short video of myself engaged in a sex act with my ex-husband, “Cliff.” Wiley didn’t confront me or mention it, but given his sudden change in behavior, I’m almost certain he saw it. The next morning I mentioned it and apologized, hoping we could get past the awkwardness, but Wiley wouldn’t admit this is what’s bothering him. He acted as if he didn’t know what I was talking about. Now he’s shutting down. He won’t talk to me. He’s off in his own world as if I’m a stranger, where a few days before we would laugh, share and trust each other. I divorced Cliff because he and my son didn’t get along, but in the last six months we have been secretly having an affair and we ultimately want to get back together when Wiley is 18. My son doesn’t




putting videos of a sexual nature on cellphones. I can think of few people of any age who don’t prefer to think of themselves as products of immaculate conception, and your son is no exception. Because Cliff and Wiley’s relationship was so poor the three of you couldn’t coexist under one roof, discovering that you are once more intimately involved with your ex must have been traumatic and threatening to Wiley. It might reassure him to know that your seeing Cliff does not mean you will be living together anytime soon. In the meantime, I recommend that YOU talk with a therapist to help you cope with the changed relationship you now have with your son. It’s a shame that Wiley’s father has used this unfortunate incident for his own selfish purposes. Divorced couples MUST remember that they have to love their child more than they hate each other.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2013 6:00

On this date: • In 2001, America faced its worst day of terrorism. Nearly 3,000 people were killed as 19 al-Qaida members hijacked four passenger jetliners. Two planes smashed into New York’s World Trade Center, causing the twin towers to fall to the ground; one plowed into the Pentagon; and the fourth was crashed into a field in western Pennsylvania.


Mitral valve prolapse rarely requires treatment into the left atrium. The two leaflets are directly between the left atrium and left ventricle. In mitral valve prolapse, however, a slight deformity of the mitral valve prevents the valve from closing normally. This appears as an abnormal floppiness, ASK or prolapse, DOCTOR K. of the valve. When the left ventricle the Dr. Anthony pumps, two leaflets pushed Komaroff get back up into the left atrium. The result is that small amounts of blood leak back into the left atrium. It sounds serious, but in most people it actually has very little effect

on the heart’s overall ability to pump blood. In some people, however, the leak worsens to create a significant backward flow of blood into the left atrium. This is called mitral regurgitation. People with severe mitral regurgitation can develop shortness of breath, fatigue and leg swelling. Mitral valve prolapse is a lifelong condition, but most people who have it never have symptoms. The condition is discovered only when a doctor hears a certain clicking sound during a routine physical examination. This abnormal heart sound is related to the malfunction of the mitral valve. If you have mitral valve prolapse but do not have any symptoms, you will not need treatment. In the past, doctors recommended that people with mitral valve prolapse take antibiotics prior to certain surgical procedures and dental appointments, but the

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have mitral valve prolapse. What does this mean? And why don’t I need treatment for it? DEAR READER: The heart is made up of four chambers. Normally, the upper two chambers (the atria) fill with blood, then pump blood into the lower two chambers (the ventricles). Next, the ventricles pump blood to the rest of the body. The mitral valve is the physical doorway between the heart’s left atrium and left ventricle. The valve has two leaflets. When it’s working properly, the mitral valve opens to let blood flow “forward” — from the left atrium down into the left ventricle. The two leaflets drop down into the left ventricle. But when the left ventricle then pumps the blood out to the body, the mitral valve closes, to prevent blood from flowing “backward” up

American Heart Association no longer recommends this. If mitral valve prolapse develops into severe mitral regurgitation, you may need to have the abnormal mitral valve surgically repaired or replaced. Mitral valve prolapse has almost surely been present in human beings for tens of thousands of years, but we discovered it only about 50 years ago. Initially, doctors worried that it was a serious, even life-threatening, condition. However, as has been true of many newly discovered conditions and diseases, we first recognize it in the people who have the most severe forms of it. As we find out more about it, we learn that many people with the condition have nothing to worry about. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Fund drive under way for Escapee facing charges statue of film critic Ebert CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Organizers in Roger Ebert’s hometown announced plans Tuesday to try to raise $125,000 to build a life-size bronze statue of the late famed film critic. The statue would go in front of Champaign’s Virginia Theatre, which has hosted the Ebertfest film festival for 15 years. Ebert, a Pulitzer Prize-winning movie reviewer and television personality, grew up in neighboring Urbana and attended the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. The sculpture will show Ebert sitting in the middle of three movie theater chairs giving his signature “thumbs up.” Artist Rick Harney of Bloomington will create the sculpture. Ebert’s widow, Chaz Ebert, selected the composition and organizers said she will work with Harney on the design. “The sculpture will be a permanent memorial which will honor Ebert for both his career and his dedication to his roots,” said a statement announcing the fundraising campaign. “It will also honor him for his determination to press forward with Ebertfest in the face of huge medical challenges.” Organizers hope to have the sculpture ready to unveil and dedicate at next year’s Ebertfest in April. Ebert died in April in Chicago after a yearslong battle with cancer. He was

DETROIT (AP) — A convict accused of fleeing a Detroit courthouse after stabbing an unarmed deputy and stealing his uniform was facing a slew of new charges on Tuesday, a day after his daring escape led to a daylong manhunt. Abraham Pearson, 25, is now charged with assault with intent to commit murder, armed robbery, carjacking and other crimes connected to his 14 hours on the lam. He eluded dozens of law enforcement officers searching wooded fields, overgrown city lots, alleys and vacant houses until a tip led to his arrest Monday night. Police said he had been hiding in a vacant home for most of the day, and that he was caught after a brief foot chase. The sheriff’s deputy who was attacked, Harrison Tolliver, was treated and released from a local hospital.

Pearson, also known as Derreck White, was being escorted to the seventh floor of the downtown Detroit courthouse Monday morning to be sentenced for armed robbery and other crimes. White attacked after his handcuffs were removed, using a sharpened plastic comb to repeatedly stab Tolliver in the neck, according to the sheriff. “The part of the comb that he was stabbed with broke. It did not inflict any life-threatening injuries,” Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon said. Pearson stole Tolliver’s uniform and ran from the courthouse, stopping only to force a woman from her minivan, then drove the vehicle from the scene, police said. He abandoned the minivan blocks away from the courthouse, on the city’s east side. Dozens of officers fanned

out across Detroit to search for Pearson, who police said spent most of the day hiding in a vacant house, and he “was attempting to flag down cars in an attempt to get a ride when police arrived,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement Tuesday. Pearson will face additional charges related to his alleged attack and escape, Napoleon said. He was expected to be arraigned Wednesday. The charges, which also include assaulting a police officer causing serious impairment, carry lengthy prison sentences. “He’s looking at a considerable amount of time,” the sheriff said. Patricia Banford, whose van was stolen during the escape, said the suspect threatened her. “He snatched the door open and said, ‘Get out or I’ll kill you!’” Banford told television station WDIV.

Teachers to strike in Greece ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Unions representing high school teachers in Greece have voted to hold “long-term” strikes starting Sept. 16 against public sector staff cuts ordered by the government as part of its bailout agreements. The leader of the teaching union OLME, Themis Kotsifakis, said Tuesday that union delegates voted overwhelmingly in favor of the weekly rolling protests at a union meeting late Monday. The move represents the

first major challenge to the country’s conservative-led government over its program to suspend 25,000 public servants this year and fire 15,000 by the end of 2014. “Our answer to the (government) is a long-term strike that will take place in a decisive way. We are seeking the support of parents and other unions,” said Kotsifakis, who has himself been suspended from his state school teaching job. Greece is stuck in a sixth year of recession,

with the slump worsened by harsh austerity measures demanded by rescue creditors that have pushed unemployment up to more than 27 percent. Conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has promised to end the recession and return the country to bond markets next year after balancing the budget. Finance Ministry figures released Tuesday showed he was on the right track, with Greece beating its fiscal targets by a comfortable margin.
