Plea deal upsets victim’s family Hamilton man was killed in 1989 BY AMY OBERLIN aoberlin@kpcmedia.com

ANGOLA — The family of a man killed 24 years ago in Hamilton has expressed distress with the way the incident was portrayed in the courtroom last week. Friday, Mahfuz Huq, 47, admitted to voluntary manslaughter in the death of Todd Kelley on Aug. 9, 1989. He is

being held in Steuben County Jail pending a sentencing hearing April 4 in Steuben Superior Court. In a statement to KPC Media Group, the Kelley family said it is “sickened and deeply saddened” by the way the change of plea was presented Friday. The manslaughter charge is a lesser felony introduced recently in Huq’s case, which was filed two weeks before Kelley’s death.

The case originally reflected one count of felony intimidation, after Huq allegedly went to Kelley’s home on July 25, 1989, threatening to kill him if he continued dating a girl that Huq had also dated. The murder charge, Huq which carries up to a 65-year sentence, was added to the intimidation case after Kelley’s death.

CIA ran secret prison

State auditor quits after short tenure INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s state auditor is resigning just a few months after taking office. The governor’s office announced Tuesday that Republican Auditor Dwayne Sawyer had submitted his resignation from the statewide office effective Dec. 15. Gov. Mike Pence had appointed the former Brownsburg Town Council president to the office in August after picking then-auditor Tim Berry as the new Indiana Republican Party chairman. Sawyer’s resignation letter cites unspecified family and personal concerns for stepping down. Sawyer had been the first black Republican to hold a statewide office in Indiana.

“Todd was a 19-year-old boy, who was in his own home on Aug. 9, 1989, when his life was taken between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. by Huq, who had threatened to kill him before. You do the math,” said the Kelley family’s statement. A plea agreement taken under advisement Friday by Judge William Fee calls

WASHINGTON (AP) — A few hundred yards from the administrative offices of the Guantanamo Bay prison, hidden behind a ridge covered in thick scrub and cactus, sits a closely held secret. A dirt road winds its way to a clearing where eight small cottages sit in two rows of four. They have long been abandoned. The special detachment of Marines that once provided security is gone. But in the early years after 9/11, these cottages were part of a covert CIA program. Its secrecy has outlasted black prisons, waterboarding and rendition. In these buildings, CIA officers turned terrorists into double agents and sent them home. It was a risky gamble. If it worked, their agents might help the CIA find terrorist leaders to kill with drones. But officials knew there was a chance that some prisoners might quickly spurn their deal and kill Americans. For the CIA, that was an acceptable risk in a dangerous business. For the American public, which was never told, it was one of the many secret trade-offs the government made on its behalf. At the same time the government used the threat of terrorism to justify imprisoning people indefinitely, it was releasing dangerous people from prison to work for the CIA. SEE CIA, PAGE A6

Rieke expanding, adding jobs in Hamilton HAMILTON — Rieke Corp. announced plans today to expand its operations in Hamilton, creating up to 15 new jobs by 2016. The Auburn-headquartered company, a subsidiary of Bloomfield Hills, Mich.-based TriMas Corp., will invest $7.5 million to equip its existing 73,360-square-foot facility at 2855 E. Bellefontaine Road in Hamilton. The company said the expansion, which began in August, will allow it to expand its capacity and capabilities, better serving its customers. Rieke is a a global manufacturer and distributor of specialty, highly-engineered closure and dispensing systems. In October, Rieke received a property-tax reduction for equipment it will add at its Hamilton operations. The Hamilton Town Council agreed to a 10-year phase-in of taxes on $1.8 million in plastic injection molding equipment for Rieke’s plant at 2855 E. Bellefountaine Road, said Brent Shull, Hamilton town manager.

Christ

was born

The new equipment will allow Rieke to more efficiently supply its customers in the eastern United States, Shull said. Rieke maintains its headquarters and main manufacturing plant in Auburn, where it has operated since 1923. Its Hamilton operations began in 2002. Rieke makes drum closures and a wide variety of product dispensing systems. Rieke currently employs about 1,400 people internationally, including more than 210 in Hamilton and Auburn. It already has begun hiring skilled maintenance associates, skilled plastic mold setters and assembly operators. Interested applicants may apply online at the riekepackaging.com careers page. “Rieke continues to expand into new markets while developing a robust program that meets our customers’ innovative demands,” said Lynn Brooks, president of Rieke. “Our ability to be on the leading edge as a global designer and manufacturer is aided by the education and technology provided at Indiana colleges and univer-

sities. The quality of the Indiana workforce contributes to our success and is the overwhelming reason Rieke continues to headquarter our business in Indiana.” Founded in 1921, Rieke makes closure and dispensing systems designed to enhance customers’ ability to store, transport, process and dispense products. The company’s global customer base includes the agricultural, food and beverage, household products, industrial, medical, nutraceutical, personal care and pharmaceutical markets. In September, Rieke was honored with the 2013 Indiana Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence for its commitment to reducing water and electric consumption, air emissions and landfill contribution. Rieke operates manufacturing facilities across the United States and around the world, including in Germany, China, Mexico and the United Kingdom. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Rieke up to $150,000 in training

grants based on the company’s job creation plans. The incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. “We are pleased that Rieke is utilizing the Hamilton plant for their expanded product line,” said Mary Vail, president of the Hamilton Town Council. “They’ve been an asset to our community for the past 11 years, and we look forward to their future growth.” Just last week, Michigan-based PADNOS announced plans to locate its first Indiana plastics facility in Steuben County. “With a solid foundation in low taxes and limited red tape, Indiana’s business climate is ripe for companies looking to achieve an extra competitive edge,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corp. “We’ve built Indiana into a state that works. With our skilled workforce and pro-growth policies, companies with a world of choices choose to remain operating in Indiana.”

Kokomo bypass opens KOKOMO (AP) — A new bypass along U.S. 31 that circumvents stoplightplagued Kokomo has opened to motorists, and just in time for Thanksgiving travelers. The $155 million, 13-mile freeway section that allows travelers to avoid 15 traffic lights through the city opened Tuesday afternoon once road crews removed barricades along the new roadway. The opening came a few hours after a ceremonial ribbon cutting attended by Gov. Mike Pence, Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight and other officials. After the ribbon-cutting, a caravan of cars traveled the new highway and crews began removing barricades. Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Harry Maginity says the highway officially opened to traffic about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday. The new bypass replaces a bypass that had opened in 1952 but eventually became lined with stoplights that created traffic backups.

Collision hurts bicyclist in Auburn AUBURN — A vehicle struck a bicycle Monday at 5:10 p.m. at the intersection of 7th and Dewey streets, Auburn Police reported. The bicycle rider complained of pain on her left side, and a DeKalb EMS ambulance took her to DeKalb Health hospital for treatment. Police did not release the names of the bicyclist or the driver or any details of the collision.

DeKalb judge takes over controversial case LAGRANGE — Christy Shaffer sat all alone at the defendant’s table in the LaGrange County Circuit Courtroom Tuesday morning, her legs crossed, nervously kicking her left foot, knowing that if the court so decides, she could be returned to an Indiana prison cell to finish a lengthy prison sentence After Shaffer was arrested earlier this month on two drug-related charges, the LaGrange County Probation Department filed paperwork with the court saying Shaffer had violated the terms of her probation for her 2011 conviction for causing the death of 16-month-old Alissa Guernsey. Shaffer, 35, has been held in the LaGrange County Jail without bond since her Nov. 12 arrest for possession of methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance. Shaffer was arrested after she failed a probation department drug test that revealed she had trace

amounts of amphetamine and methamphetamine in her system, LaGrange County Prosecutor Jeff Wible said. In 2009, Alissa Guernsey died while in Shaffer’s care. The coroner later ruled that the toddler’s death was caused by blunt-force trauma, and a grand jury charged Shaffer with two counts of neglect of a dependent. Two years later, Shafer pleaded guilty to one count of neglect of a dependent and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. But three months later, in a move that surprised many, LaGrange County Judge J. Scott VanDerbeck reduced Shaffer’s sentence to time served – 77 days — and placed Shaffer on six months of home detention and three years of probation. That move lead to protests on the LaGrange courthouse lawn, with protesters saying VanDerbeck showed favoritism to Shaffer and her family. Last fall, in a written statement released by the judge, VanDerbeck recused himself from any

future cases involving Shaffer. According to probation department documents filed last week with the court, Shaffer was not supposed to violate any federal, state or local laws and was not to possess, use or distribute alcohol, drugs, narcotics, controlled substances or over-the-counter amphetamines. Security was tight Tuesday for Shaffer. Sheriff Terry Martin and two deputies escorted Shaffer into the courthouse. A LaGrange deputy marshal was already in the courtroom, as well as a jail transportation officer and a LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department detective. Members of an online grassroots organization, Babyalissacries4justice, promised to show up at the courthouse Tuesday morning to protest against Shaffer, but only two members of that group were on hand, both sitting quietly during the court’s proceedings. Shaffer had been appointed a public defender,

attorney Travis Glick, when she was arraigned in court on the drug charges earlier this month. But late last week, Glick filed a motion to have himself removed as her attorney, citing a conflict of interest. He did not appear at Tuesday’s hearing. Special Judge Kevin Wallace of DeKalb County

assured Shaffer he would appoint a new public defender for both her cases as quickly as he can. Wallace also set Shaffer’s bail at $15,000 and scheduled a pretrial hearing on the two drug charges and the motion to revoke Shaffer’s probation for Friday, Dec. 20, at 1 p.m.

Garrett schools considering calendar options BY SUE CARPENTER scarpenter@kpcmedia.com

GARRETT — Efforts continue to determine which school calendar GarrettKeyser-Butler Schools will follow next year. Tonya Weaver, director of administration and innovation, shared preliminary results of a survey completed by staff members with the school board Monday night. A calendar committee was formed in May to study and propose an academic calendar for the 2014-15 school year. Members include teachers, administrators, parents and school board members. Options include the traditional calendar with a two-week winter break and one-week spring break, with occasional days for during the school year for holidays. A balanced calendar would reallocate school days across a calendar in a

more even fashion, Weaver said. This option would shorten the time school is in session without a long break. A typical balanced calendar has nine weeks of instruction with a two-week break between sessions, during which an intercession is used to provide remediation or enrichment activities for students. Weaver emphasized the balanced calendar is not an all-year session, but offers more school year breaks and allows for a six- to seven-week summer break. Any calendar option would include 180 instructional days. Weaver said of the 111 staff members who completed the survey, about 67 percent prefer a balanced calendar. Other options are whether to align a calendar with other school districts. A meeting is planned next week to continue discussion,

Region • Fort Wayne mayor nominates York for safety director FORT WAYNE (AP) — Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry has nominated Police Chief Rudy York to be the city’s director of public safety. York would oversee the police and fire departments and other public safety functions in the city. York has 36 years of experience in public safety, including serving as police chief since 2000. City Council still must approve creation of the new position.

Van-buggy crash leaves one dead GOSHEN (AP) — Authorities said a van crashed into a horse-drawn buggy on a northern Indiana highway, killing the buggy’s driver. The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department said the crash happened Monday evening on S.R. 119 a few

miles southwest of Goshen when the van drove into the buggy from behind. The department said 51-year-old Ammon Imhoff of Goshen was thrown from the buggy and pronounced dead at the scene. The woman who was driving the van was taken to a Goshen hospital for treatment of chest pain. There weren’t any passengers in either vehicle.

with the bottom line to determine which option is best for students, she said. In other business Monday, Superintendent Dennis Stockdale reported the certified assessed valuation for the school corporation has dropped from $430 million to $323 million, which will result in higher tax rate. Stockdale said he would have a better hold of the numbers for next month’s meeting. The district will be offering retired Apple iPad devices at a sale next month for $65 apiece, according to technology director Grant Surfus. The first-generation, 16 GB iPads and power supplies are in good working order, sold as-is with no warranty, he said. Some applications may not work, because the devices are not capable of updating to a current operating system. The devices will not be eligible for the school’s

People may call Surfus at 357-7040 for information about the sale. Stockdale reported staff members have been trained to implement the school’s anti-bullying protocol. Complaints are reviewed and forwarded to school nurse Janis Arrington and guidance counselors. Any student charged with alleged bullying meets with administration, and in-school and out-of-school suspension is considered, if needed. “We will work swiftly

The board approved the resignation of Cisco Mireles as high school Spanish instructor effective Dec. 20; the hiring of Molly Getts as middle school girls basketball coach; and the resignations of high school coaches Sallie Raftery for volleyball and Sam Sprunger as a boys basketball volunteer. The board approved recommendations to: • approve the second reading of an anti-bully policy; • allow Greg Myers to attend the AASA National Conference on Education in Nashville, Tenn., from Feb. 13-15, 2014; • to accept the 2014 tax anticipation loan rate bid from Garrett State Bank; • to accept the 2013-2014 Safe Haven and 2014 Secured Schools Safety Program grant awards.

KENDALLVILLE — A Kendallville woman was injured in a two-car collision Friday, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. Abby S. Knott, 53, of the 3000 block of North Noble C.R. 1000E was northbound on C.R. 1000E near C.R. 300N at 4:58 p.m. when she stopped the 2007 Saturn Aura she drove to turn left into a driveway. Taiylor Wineland, 20, of the 100 block of DeKalb C.R. 16, Corunna was northbound behind Knott. Wineland looked down at the car radio and couldn’t stop the 2005 Chevy Impala she drove quickly enough to avoid colliding with the rear of the Saturn. Knott complained of hip pain and was transported by Noble County EMS to Parkview Noble Hospital, Kendallville. Wineland declined medical treatment at the scene. Damage was estimated at $10,001$25,000. Wineland following too closely was the primary cause of the accident, with her distraction contributing, deputies said.

In this 2007 file photo Amanda Marie Knox, left, and Raffaele Sollecito, stand outside the rented house where 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher was found dead Friday, in Perugia, Italy. The state’s prosecutor is arguing his case that an appeals court should reinstate the guilty verdict against U.S. exchange student Amanda Knox for the grisly 2007 murder of her roommate. Prosecutor Alessandro Crini said Monday that Italy’s highest court had “razed to the ground” the Perugia appellate court’s 2011 decision to throw out the guilty verdicts, freeing Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito.

Prosecutor demands guilty verdict for Knox FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — An Italian prosecutor on Tuesday demanded that an appellate court find Amanda Knox guilty of the 2007 murder of her British roommate, a killing he argued may have been rooted in arguments about cleanliness and triggered by a toilet left unflushed by the only man now in jail for the murder. Prosecutor Alessandro Crini called for 26-year sentences for Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, her co-defendant and former boyfriend, following more than 10 hours of closing arguments over two days. Knox and Sollecito deny any involvement in the killing. Crini departed from past scenarios by suggesting the crime was not so much sexually fueled — an erotic game that got out of control, as the lower court prosecutor described it — but an act of physical violence with a sexual expression. He alleged that Knox and Sollecito acted with another man in an explosion of violence sparked by tension between Knox and British student Meredith Kercher. Crini argued that Rudy Guede — a native of Ivory Coast now serving a 16-year sentence for the murder — may have inflamed tensions between Knox and Kercher after he defecated in a toilet inside the women’s apartment and didn’t flush. Crini said Guede, who was friendly with young men living in a neighboring apartment, had done the same thing the previous week. “It is an absolutely disgusting and incongruous habit that he evidently had,” Crini said. Testimony in previous trials had cited tensions between Kercher and Knox over the cleanliness of the house they shared with two Italian roommates. Kercher’s murder in the idyllic hillside town of Perugia is getting its third trial after Italy’s highest court annulled an appellate ruling overturning the 2009 guilty verdicts against Knox and Sollecito. They were convicted in the first trial, and sentenced to 26 years and 25 years, respectively. Knox’s sentence included 1 year for slander. Knox’s lawyer, Carlo Dalla Vedova, said the shift in the prosecution’s theory about events leading up to the killing “confirms the lack of proof.” “In a trial based on clues, all the facts can be interpreted. This prosecutor worked very hard, but it doesn’t change the situation. There are too many doubts. It calls for only an acquittal,” Dalla Vedova

said. Kercher’s body was found in a pool of blood in her locked bedroom on Nov. 2, 2007. Her throat was slit and there were signs of sexual aggression. Kercher was stripped naked during the attack, and prosecutors allege that her bra was removed with a knife that tore off a clasp, one of the most-disputed pieces of evidence in the case. Guede was convicted in the murder on evidence that included physical evidence from a vaginal swab of the victim. Crini also urged that Knox’s separate sentence for slander for falsely blaming Kercher’s murder on a Congolese-born bar owner, Diya “Patrick” Lumumba , be raised from three years to four years because, Crini argued, she lied to deflect suspicion from herself — which would be an aggravating circumstance. Knox returned to the United States a free woman in 2011 after the appellate court ruling, having spent four years in jail, and has remained there for this trial. Sollecito, who also is free, had attended two hearings but was not in court on Tuesday. In a statement released in Seattle, Knox said her lawyers had filed an appeal of the slander conviction — the only part of the case confirmed by Italy’s highest court — with the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, claiming the accusation against Lumumba was coerced by police who failed to inform her she was a suspect in Kercher’s murder. “The police were the ones who first brought forth Patrick’s name saying they knew I was going to meet him the night of Meredith Kercher’s murder, which was not true,” Knox said. “I have stated many times that my original comments about Patrick were coerced by the police and not true.” Lumumba’s lawyer, Carlo Pacelli, disputed that in his summing up on Tuesday, saying that Knox named Lumumba “spontaneously.” “Amanda had a double personality,” Pacelli said. One the one hand she was “good, compassionate, tender,” and on the other “a female Lucifer, diabolical, satanic.” Crini also challenged new interpretations of genetic evidence cited by a Perugia appeals court when it overturned the guilty verdicts. He said a DNA sample on the blade of the presumed murder weapon was clean and belonged to Kercher.

FORT WAYNE (AP) — A former Indianapolis police officer who killed a man and seriously injured two others when he was driving drunk and crashed his police cruiser into two motorcycles stopped at a traffic light was sentenced Tuesday to 13 years in prison. David Bisard was convicted last month on nine counts, the most serious of which was driving with a blood-alcohol content above 0.15 percent while in a fatal accident. The legal limit in Indiana is 0.08. He resigned Monday from the police department. He had been suspended without pay since the 2010 crash that killed 30-year-old Eric Wells. Allen County Superior Judge John Surbeck sentenced Bisard to a total of 16 years in prison but suspended the last three years. Prosecutors had requested a 22-year prison sentence with two years suspended, while Bisard’s

CIA: Secret location had code name Penny Lane Nearly a dozen current and former U.S officials described aspects of the program to The Associated Press. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the secret program, even though it ended in about 2006. The program and the handful of men who passed through these cottages had various official CIA codenames. But those who were aware of the cluster of cottages knew it best by its sobriquet: Penny Lane.

It was a nod to the classic Beatles song and a riff on the CIA’s other secret facility at Guantanamo Bay, a prison known as Strawberry Fields. Some of the men who passed through Penny Lane helped the CIA find and kill many top al-Qaida operatives, current and former U.S. officials said. Others stopped providing useful information and the CIA lost touch with them. When prisoners began streaming into the prison on the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in January 2002, the CIA

Wells’ wife, Luisa Montilla, told Surbeck that she and her husband moved to Indiana to build a family and that he planned to go to graduate school. “I don’t have my best friend. I don’t have my husband,� she said. “I couldn’t build my life again. It will never be the same.� Wells’ mother asked the judge to give Bisard the maximum sentence. “My son’s freedom was ripped away by David Bisard’s actions that day,� Mary Wells said. “There is no sentence long enough or punishment severe enough that could possibly compensate for my daily torment.� Bisard’s wife, Lora, cried while testifying about how the crash and criminal case affected the couple’s two young daughters, saying the family prayed daily for the crash victims and their families. She asked for treatment for her husband rather than a long prison term.

attorneys asked for 11 to 12 years, with several years suspended. Bisard told the court that he is “remorseful beyond words� and accepts responsibility for the crash. But he said he would not accept responsibility for being intoxicated. Bisard did admit he was drunk when he crashed his pickup truck in April 2013 in a separate incident. He said that DUI arrest caused him to lose the trust of his family and friends and made it difficult for people to believe he wasn’t drunk at the time of the fatal crash on Aug. 6, 2010. “I am not the awful man I’ve been made out to be,� he said while reading a statement during the sentencing hearing. Bisard’s attorneys had argued during his trial that his blood test was faulty. Surbeck criticized Bisard Tuesday for his “blatant denials� about being drunk, the newspaper reported.

recognized it as an unprecedented opportunity to identify sources. That year, 632 detainees arrived at the island. The following year 117 more arrived. “Of course that would be an objective,� said Emile Nakhleh, a former top CIA analyst who spent time in 2002 assessing detainees but who did not discuss Penny Lane. “It’s the job of intelligence to recruit sources.� By early 2003, Penny Lane was open for business. Candidates were ushered from the confines of prison to Penny Lane’s relative hominess, officials said.

for a maximum executed prison sentence of 40 years and dismissal of charges of murder and intimidation as well as a six-count burglary case pending against Huq, also filed in the late 1980s. Fee will determine whether to accept the terms of the plea agreement at sentencing in April. “The lesser charge of manslaughter is a tough enough pill for our family to swallow, but we accept that’s how our justice works sometimes,� said the family statement, issued by Kelley’s sister, Shannon, and his father, Vernon. “What we won’t do is stand by and allow Todd, the victim of this crime, to be dragged through the mud by Huq and his attorney. Huq changed his story at the

last minute in an attempt to pacify his family and make it fit the new manslaughter charge. Huq’s new, clearly fabricated, version in no way coincides with any of the evidence in this case. Nor is it in any way consistent with the crime scene.� Huq is represented by attorneys James Voyles of Indianapolis and Linda Wagoner of Angola. Friday, Voyles indicated that some of Huq’s family from Bangladesh may appear at the sentencing. Huq fled the United States the day after the killing and had been living under an assumed name in Bangladesh, say authorities. While law enforcement knew where Huq was, he could not be reached due to extradition agreements between Bangladesh and

the United States. He was arrested when he went to New Delhi, India, for a conference in February 2011, and eventually he was extradited. The manslaughter charge indicates Huq killed Kelley in a sudden heat. In court, Huq said he went to Kelley’s house around 10 p.m. on the night of the incident “to confront Christine Mutzfeld as was planned by Mr. Kelley and myself.� He said the confrontation was planned in Kelley’s and Huq’s meeting two weeks earlier, the cause of the intimidation charge. According to court documents, Huq waited outside Kelley’s home for a long period of time that night until Mutzfeld left, then went inside, where Kelley was stabbed to death.

Eastside girls fall in overtime BY JEFF JONES jjones@kpcmedia.com

TUESDAY’S GAMES BROOKLYN ..........................102 TORONTO..............................100

Star

BUTLER — In the past three seasons, Eastside’s girls basketball team has had just a handful of close games. It’s important to make those count in the win column. Case in point Tuesday, in which the Adams Central Flying Jets took advantage of Eastside’s 0-5 shooting in overtime for a 70-64 win. The Jets (1-2) got the first points of the extra session on two Briona Case free throws, and Abby Busse hit a jumper from the right wing to make it 66-62 with 1:30 to play in overtime. They kept the Blazers just out of reach for the non-conference win. “We just have to learn how to win games,” Eastside coach Shane Conwell said.

“We’re down 14-6 in the first quarter and we fight back. They go on a run and we fight back. We have to find a way to do our own little run. “We got tired,” he said afterwards. “That’s something we talked about afterwards, rotating girls in better so they’re a little more fresh. It’s tough to do when you only have 12 girls in the program.” There were plenty of bright spots for the Blazers (0-3) however. Leah Ward had a careerhigh 17 points to go with 13 rebounds. Maddy Minehart also had a double-double with 12 points and 17 rebounds, despite playing the entire second half and overtime with four fouls. Brianna Moore connected for 16 points and Kaci Shook chipped in with 14 before

both players fouled out in the extra session. Busse led all scorers with 22 points. Case had 19 and Megan Salway added 15 for Adams Central. Busse and Case hit four three-pointers each. The Jets — and Busse — got hot early. The senior guard connected for three straight jumpers, including a pair of threes, as the visitors pulled out to a 14-6 lead after one. The Blazers chipped away with mini runs, including seven straight in the second, capped by Casey Whitman’s rebound basket, to take a 21-17 lead late in the half. Salway scored twice inside, and Case buried a three in the final 1:10 to lead SEE BLAZERS, PAGE B2

Lakewood Park routs Glad it’s basketball Hamilton in opener season BY PHIL FRIEND pfriend@kpcmedia.com

AUBURN — Drake Donaldson made quite an impression in his first game wearing the Lakewood Park Christian jersey. The junior transfer from Carroll lit up the gym with his rain-making 3-pointers, draining five in the game — four in the first half — to help the Panthers defeat visiting Hamilton 70-55 Thursday night. “That was huge for us,” said Lakewood Park coach Chad Hibbard. “He shot it well, and obviously he shot it efficiently, and what it does, it’s going to have to force people to guard him, which allows our penetrators to have more space. They’re going to have to respect what he can do and he did a phenomenal job.” Donaldson finished with 19 points to lead the Panthers. Both Noah Gardner and Jared Gerke were also in double figures with 15 and 12 points, respectively. Donaldson made three consecutive 3-pointers during a 2:30 stretch in the second quarter, extending the Panthers’ (1-0) lead from 24-17 to 33-17. It didn’t get any better from there for Hamilton. The 9-0 run extended all the way to 17-0 thanks to four Jared Gerke free throws, and buckets from Keegan Fetters and Austin Mann pushed the Lakewood lead all the way to 41-17. Lakewood Park also forced 14 first-half turnovers. “We’re trying to emphasize ball pressure and getting after people, making passes difficult and the guys did a great job pressuring the ball, and we kept them from executing,” Hibbard said. Lakewood Park would extend the advantage in the third quarter, outscoring Hamilton 13-6 over the first five-plus minutes to make

Hamilton beats LP to earn first win BY SPENCER BUTTERMORE sbuttermore01@dekalbcentral.net

AUBURN — Both Lakewood Park Christian and Hamilton came into Tuesday night’s game with no wins on the season. The game came down to the final seconds, but Hamilton came out on top with a 48-44 victory. Turnovers played a big role in the game for the Panthers. “Protect the ball better, less turnovers. We turned the ball over way to much.” said Lakewood coach Pam Chaney. Hamilton ended the first quarter with an 11-2 run to put the Marines up 13-6. Sanne Van Roessel played a big factor in the run by scoring eight of the 11 points. The second quarter would be all Lakewood as they looked to come back from the early deficit.

BLAZERS: Eastside only made 2 of 13 3-point attempts in loss FROM PAGE B1

24-21 at the break. The Jets pulled away to a 34-25 lead in the third, but Eastside rallied once again. Shook’s steal, score and free throw cut the margin to one, and Minehart’s score inside late put the Blazers on top 39-38. Eastside led one after three, but the Jets led most of the fourth, including 60-56 with a minute to play on Case’s three from the right corner. Ward hit two free throws, and Minehart scored twice around a Case bucket, including a baseline shot with 7.7 seconds left to force overtime. “If you would have told me we would have scored 64, I would have taken that,” Conwell said. “We had games in the 20s last year. We had 42 against Angola. I’ll take those numbers, but

our defense has to tighten up. “If my girls aren’t going to play defense, we have to find a way to knock down shots because teams are going to double on Maddy,” Conwell said. “We didn’t do that tonight.” The Blazers were just 21-of-64 (33 percent) from the field, and only 2-of-13 (15 percent) behind the arc. While the Jets were similar from the field (25-of-69, 36 percent), they were 8-of-20 from three-point range. Eastside visits Churubusco Friday. Eastside JV 39, Adams Central 33 Emma Moughler scored 11 points, Hannah Yoder had 10 and Casey Whitman added eight as the Blazer reserves picked up their first win of the season.

SPORTS BRIEFS • ND women master Demons SOUTH BEND (AP) — Natalie Achonwa scored 17 points and Kayla McBride had 16 to help No. 5 Notre Dame beat No. 25 DePaul 92-76 on Tuesday night for its second victory over a ranked opponent this season. Taya Reimer had 15 points and 14 rebounds off the bench for the Fighting Irish (5-0), who won their 28th consecutive regular-season game and 15th straight at home.

Rodgers unlikely to play Thurs. GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers is tossing the football around again at practice. But don’t expect to see Rodgers to be healed enough from his fractured left collarbone to play Thursday when Green Bay visits Detroit in a critical NFC North game. “This was a big day actually for him as far as doing throwing and doing some of the things … the training staff wanted to hit with him. They definitely hit it,” coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday after practice. “So, he feels good but I don’t think he’s going to make it this week.” Tuesday marked Rodgers’ return to practice since the Nov. 4 injury as anything more than an unofficial assistant quarterback coach. He was formally declared “limited” on the injury report. Asked for more clarity after having pronounced Rodgers’ chances as “slim to none” earlier this week, McCarthy told reporters: “Closer to none. I’m trying to help you out, the drama … that you guys need. So, there it is, all right.” So then the starter is … Matt Flynn. Probably. Flynn took starter reps Tuesday, two days after helping to lead the Packers back from a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter to tie the Vikings 26-26 in overtime. “That’s where we are. Business as usual,” McCarthy said. “Getting him ready. Getting ready to go.” Flynn hadn’t actually been told as of early Tuesday afternoon that he’ll be the starter. He said he didn’t know when that decision will be made, though it seems like it’s headed in that direction.

Foles named Eagles starting QB PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Quarterback Nick Foles has been named Philadelphia’s starter for the rest of the season. Coach Chip Kelly made the announcement Tuesday as the team returned from its bye week and began preparations for the Arizona Cardinals (7-4) on Sunday. The Eagles (6-5) are tied for first place in the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys. “Nick will be our starter,” Kelly said. “And hopefully we get Mike (Vick) back through a full week of practice and he’ll be able to be the No. 2 guy.” Foles, in his second season, replaced Vick, who re-injured his hamstring in a loss to the New York Giants on Oct. 27. The Eagles have saved their season after a rocky start and he’s been the focal point.

Suffering smoked salmon There is a downside to having a father who is the greatest living fisherman on the planet. Sometimes, he brings his work home with him. Don’t get me wrong, I love fish. I love fishing. I love to catch them. I love to eat them. Thanks to the culinary creativity of the greatest fisherman’s favorite fishing partner, I enjoy them fried, baked, sauteed, fashioned into patties and steaked. But there’s one preparation method my dad likes that is, uh, olfactory obnoxious. Let’s start with the basics. Fish smell. Even when MATT fresh, fish give off a pungent GETTS aroma. When strong, the smell can be one of the most nausea-inspiring odors on planet Earth. The salmon and steelhead Dad (and I, thanks to him) catch are strong-smelling fish. We are talking national debt strong. Faithful readers will remember that this smell is so strong that my dear, loving father attempts to wash the stench from the boat every season. It’s the kind of smell Which is like Wild that would cause a nest Bill Hickok trying to fill of skunks to move out. in the notches on his gun belt with Silly Putty. A smelly fishing boat is a testament to prowess. But I digress … To consume said fish, which I enjoy, it first must be brought into the home. Which is not all that bad. Not by itself. A fisherman who can’t tolerate the smell of fish is like a politician who can’t stand being corrupt. The only smell that can rival fish for sheer offensiveness is smoke. Not talking the light waft of a burning campfire here — that’s a great smell. A gentle whiff of a grill cooking up supper is divine. But a heavy blast of smoke? It burns the eyes and fouls the nose. They call it smoke damage when there is a fire for a reason. It’s easier to get rid of a kidney stone than it is the smell of smoke. Smoke is disgusting. Fish perhaps equally offensive. That’s why it is alarming whenever the world’s greatest fisherman decides to combine the two in a hellish symphony of stink. I have friends that I run into occasionally from elementary school. More than once, one of these friends has brought up the smoked fish I used to bring into the classroom. They don’t say, “Hey, Getts, how you doing?” or “Hey, Getts, what are you up to?” They say, “I remember that fish you used to bring into school. That was awful.” I don’t know why the teachers tolerated it, though the prospect of having my mom send them some in a gift basket comes to mind. The greatest fisherman has renewed his interest in smoking a good portion of his catch, which is like Congress resuming talks on fresh spending. In the old days, people used to smoke meat to preserve it. They even had smokehouses where this meat was kept. I am guessing it was downwind from the main living area. The smoked fish is kept on the side porch at the folks’ house. To say the side porch now stinks is one of the world’s greatest understatements. It’s the kind of smell that would cause a nest of skunks to move out. The house also reeks of the aroma of a salmon being burned alive. In fact, pretty much the entire neighborhood smells like a coastal community after the fish cannery burned to the ground. People don’t drive by the house to check out the Christmas lights, they drive by to determine what in the world smells so bad. The neighbors have asked my parents if they wouldn’t want to bring a large hog farm to their backyard, instead. There would be picketing, to be sure, if people weren’t worried they’d never get the smell out of their clothing. The folks are undaunted. Truth be told, the end result tastes heavenly. Or maybe it’s the fact that it tastes better than it smells. How could it not?

Letters to The Editor • Let’s keep personal property tax discussion in perspective To the editor: Reducing the state’s dependence on the taxation of business machinery and equipment came into the spotlight recently with legislative leaders and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce announcing it was a top priority for 2014. Since then, some attention has focused on the approximately $1 billion in revenue that local governments would have to do without if a full elimination were to take place. But absolutely no one has called for that money to be taken away without some type of replacement revenue stream. What’s more, there is no way that all personal property tax can be eliminated overnight — that is not going to be the proposal. So those fears can be calmed. With that aspect clarified, let’s look at why the matter is being brought up in the first place. Indiana is the only state in the Midwest, other than Kentucky, that taxes machinery and equipment (personal property) — and Kentucky taxes it at a much lower rate. In fact, only a hand full of states tax personal property at a higher rate than Indiana. In fact, the effective property tax rate for our business commercial and industrial property taxpayers is near the top in every category (big, small, urban or rural), and this is largely due to the state’s tax on business equipment. Numerous studies clearly support that fact. Tax policy experts, economists and academics all acknowledge that personal property tax deters investment in new capital. And new investment in the capital — machines and equipment — that is necessary for a business to expand and thrive should not be discouraged, but encouraged. New investments mean the business is growing. This means workers are being added and the company is spending money on the services and products of other local businesses. In other words, the businesses that local communities depend on to employ their residents are more motivated to invest in the community. All true economic growth comes from

a strong business community. Without it, the government will have nobody to serve. Nobody wants to deny local governments the means to operate effectively. Everybody wants them to provide the services and infrastructure necessary to a make their community an enjoyable place to live. So fair revenue replacements can and will be found to protect the integrity of needed local government operations. While nobody likes taxes, some taxes are truly more detrimental than others. That’s why our legislators and other elected officials have identified the need to wean us off the taxation of capital investment; they are looking to further improve our tax climate and make Indiana as competitive as it can possibly be. This is not a goal that should be attacked or obstructed. It is one that should be embraced by all who want their communities and state to reach their greatest potential. So, let’s keep these things in mind as the debate progresses on this initiative.

I have lived in the same house for 10 years and I cannot remember one single time that some church had come to our home and ask us about our souls or invite us to church. Are we not a thankful Christian society any longer that we should share with others the salvation that God has given to us with them? Everyone has something to be thankful for. You have your home. You have your car. You have gas for your car. You have a job. You have food to eat. You have friends and family. You have the opportunity to still give your life to Christ before you die and end up in the fiery pits of hell if you chose not to repent and accept Him as your sacrifice. When Christians do not give God the thanksgiving that He deserves it affects our spiritual life. God wants you to be happy. God loves Bill Waltz, vice president each and every one of us. Even if you are of taxation and public policy not a Christian God stills loves you and Indiana Chamber of Commerce hopes that you will go to Him and live for Him through what Jesus has done for you the cross of Calvary.

‘A-paws:’ cat people vs. dog people Preferences for dogs or cats are reportedly revealing by personality, online studies show. Sixty-two percent of U.S. households have a pet, the American Pet Products Association said. Dogs are the most popular with 39 percent of U.S. households owning dogs. Preferences between a mutt like Spot or kitty named Fluffy can be telling. A University of Texas study found those defining themselves as dog people are more extroverted, agreeable and conscientious than self-proclaimed cat people. Those with a preference for felines, on the other hand, are more creative, adventurous and prone to anxiety. A pet can also signify

voting trends. A 2008 Gallup survey of 2,000 Americans found that 33 percent of dog owners identified themselves as Republicans, while only 28 percent of cat owners leaned to the right. Both cat people and dog people are equally likely to have a four-year JENNIFER degree, but cat people are 17 DECKER percent more likely to have completed a graduate degree. Also, dog people are 30 percent more likely to live in a rural area and 24 percent more likely to have kids. Cat people are 33 percent more likely to prefer taking care of a friend’s kids than a friend’s dogs. Dog people are even 18 percent more likely to

consider Paul McCartney their favorite Beatle. No doubt about it, we love our pets. At the end of the day, when I climb the steps up to my apartment and put the key in the door, I hear the collar tags of my calico Poppy clinking. She flies to stretch and greet me. She simply can’t wait to be petted and have her face rubbed and those feelings are irresistible to me when she brushes against me or does a head butt. Even types of cats reveal ownership traits. Domestic short hair, generous and kind; domestic longhair, quiet; Persian, laid back; Maine coon, interesting; Siamese, great sense of humor; Abyssinian, active; rag doll, mysterious; Oriental, enthusiastic and American short hair, traditional. Since dogs are king,

breeds also reveal such owner details as: poodle, prone to drama; Yorkie, wealthy and attention loving; golden retriever, helpful and loyal; afghan hound, much pride in hair; dachshund, quirky and unconventional; bloodhound, insightful; German shepherd, outspoken, but follows rules; beagle, pleasant disposition; boxers, proud and self confident; bulldog, stubborn and Shih Tzu, prissy. Have you petted and kissed your fur person today? Chances are they can’t wait. Usually all it takes is that look from them, a wagging tail or an offered paw.

Briefs • Some states forbid Thanksgiving sales PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Shoppers in many states will line up for deals hours after Thanksgiving dinner, but stores in a handful are barred by law from opening on the holiday. Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine have so-called “blue laws” that bar many big stores from opening Thursday. The laws prohibit most big box stores department stores and large supermarkets from opening. There have been some complaints over the years from companies that complain they’re losing business to neighboring states or online stores, and recent pushes to change the laws in Maine and Massachusetts have gone nowhere.

France to send troops to Africa DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — France promised Tuesday to send 1,000 troops to Central African Republic amid warnings about the potential for genocide in the near-anarchic former French colony. Whether the French forces will save lives largely depends on how far the foreign soldiers venture outside the capital, Bangui, to the lawless provinces where mostly Muslim rebels have been attacking Christian villages, and Christian militias have recently launched retaliatory attacks. The French move comes less than a week after French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius warned “the country is on the verge of genocide” and marks the second time this year that France has sent troops to a former colony.

People • Bono optimistic about ‘Spider-Man’ NEW YORK (AP) — U2 frontman Bono feels optimistic that his musical, “Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark” will continue to thrive after the show turns the lights out on Broadway early next year. “When you think of the difficult birth that we had with ‘Turn Off the Dark,’” he said, “it’s worked out so well.” “Three hugely successful years, and then it’s off to Germany, it’s off to Las Vegas,” Bono said Monday night on the red carpet for “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.” U2 contributed to the film’s soundtrack with “Ordinary Love.” It’s the band first new song in three years and it plays at the end of the movie. Bono and Edge also wrote the music for “Spider-Man.” By the time it closes, more than 2 million people will have seen it. But the musical had a tumultuous run, including six delayed opening nights, numerous injuries to the cast, and the publicized firing of director Julie Taymor. It was also Broadway’s most expensive show, costing around $75 million.

Supreme Court to take up health care issue WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to referee another dispute over President Barack Obama’s health care law: whether businesses may use religious objections to escape a requirement to cover birth control for employees. The justices said they will take up an issue that has divided the lower courts in the face of roughly 40 lawsuits from for-profit companies asking to be spared from having to cover some or all forms of contraception. The Obama administration promotes the law’s provision of a range of preventive care, free of charge, as a key benefit of the health care overhaul.

Contraception is included in the package of cost-free benefits, which opponents say is an attack on the religious freedom of employers. The court will consider two cases. One involves Hobby Lobby Inc., an Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain with 13,000 full-time employees. Hobby Lobby won in the lower courts. The other case is an appeal from Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., a Pennsylvania company that employs 950 people in making wood cabinets. Lower courts rejected the company’s claims. The court said the cases will be combined for arguments, probably in late

March. A decision should come by late June. The cases center on the provision of the law that requires most employers that offer health insurance to their workers to provide the range of preventive health benefits. In both instances, the Christian families that own the companies say that insuring some forms of contraception violates their religious beliefs. The key issue is whether profit-making corporations may assert religious beliefs under the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act or the First Amendment provision guaranteeing Americans the right to believe and worship as they choose.

Nearly four years ago, the justices expanded the concept of corporate “personhood,” saying in the Citizens United case that corporations have the right to participate in the political process the same way that individuals do. Some lower court judges have applied the same logic in the context of religious beliefs. “The government has no business forcing citizens to choose between making a living and living free,” said David Cortman of the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Christian public interest law firm that is representing Conestoga Wood at the Supreme Court.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said the health care law “puts women and families in control of their health care by covering vital preventive care, like cancer screenings and birth control, free of charge.” Carney said the administration already has exempted churches from the requirement, and has created a buffer between faith-affiliated charities and contraceptive coverage by requiring insurers or another third party to provide contraceptive coverage instead of the religious employer. Separate lawsuits are challenging that arrangement.

Newtown report renews focus on shooter’s mother

7 wounded in Oakland shooting OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Seven men were wounded, one critically, when gunfire erupted on an Oakland street and continued for several blocks, police said. Officers received reports of a shooting about a block away from a park in East Oakland shortly after 6 p.m. Monday, Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said. Police learned about a second shooting scene nearby when they arrived. Watson said Tuesday that initial reports suggest that two armed suspects approached a group of men who were celebrating a birthday and began shooting at them. One of the victims is in critical condition, down from an initial police report of two, while the other six suffered non-life threatening injuries, Watson said. The wounded are between the ages of 23 and 31.

Pope Francis celebrates a Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica Saturday at the Vatican.

Pope issues papal mission statement VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis issued the mission statement for his papacy Tuesday, outlining how the Catholic Church and the papacy itself must be reformed to create a more missionary and merciful church that gets its hands dirty as it seeks out the poor and oppressed. In the 85-page document, Francis pulled together the priorities he has laid out in eight months of homilies, speeches and interviews and put them in the broader context of how to reinvigorate the church’s evangelical zeal in a world marked by indifference, secularization and vast income inequalities. He explained his most controversial remarks criticizing the church’s “obsession” with transmitting a disjointed set of moral doctrines, saying that in the church’s “hierarchy of truths,” mercy is paramount, proportion is necessary, and that what counts is inviting the faithful in. He went even further Tuesday, saying some of the church’s historical customs can even be cast aside if they no longer serve to communicate the faith. Citing St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, Francis stressed the need for moderation in norms “so as to not burden the lives of the faithful.” At the same time, Francis restated the church’s opposition to abortion, making clear that this doctrine is non-negotiable and is at

the core of the church’s insistence on the dignity of every human being. The document, Evangelii Gaudium, (The Joy of the Gospel), is the second major teaching document issued by Francis but is the first actually written by him since the encyclical “The Light of Faith,” issued in July, was penned almost entirely by Pope Benedict XVI before he resigned. Francis wrote the bulk of it in August, during the Vatican’s summer lull, said Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi. Francis’ concerns are laced throughout, and the theological and historical citations leave no doubt about his own points of reference and priorities: Popes John XXIII and Paul VI, who presided over the Second Vatican Council, which brought the church into the modern world, are cited repeatedly. And in a first for an apostolic exhortation, as this type of papal pronouncement is called, Francis cited various documents of bishops’ conferences from around the world, an indication of the importance he places in giving the local church greater say in church governance and decisionmaking. “I prefer a church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security,” he wrote.

Rain, snow snarl holiday travel on East Coast NEW YORK (AP) — Thanksgiving travelers scrambled to book earlier flights Tuesday to avoid a sprawling storm bearing down on the East Coast with a messy mix of snow, rain and wind that threatened to snarl one of the busiest travel days of the year and ground giant balloon versions of Snoopy and SpongeBob SquarePants in the Macy’s parade. The iconic characters that soar through the Manhattan skyscrapers every year may not lift off Thursday if sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city rules enacted after fierce winds in 1997 caused a Cat in the Hat balloon to topple a light pole and seriously injure a woman

spectator. Current forecasts call for sustained winds of 20 mph and gusts of 36 mph. “At this time, it is too early to make any determinations on the flight of the giant balloons,” said Macy’s spokesman Orlando Veras. “On Thanksgiving morning, Macy’s works closely with the NYPD, who, based on real time weather data and the official regulations determine if the balloons will fly and at what heights.” Balloons have only been grounded once in the parade’s 87-year history, when bad weather kept them from flying in 1971. They’re set to be inflated in Manhattan on Wednesday evening.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — As Adam Lanza withdrew from the world into his bedroom, the only person he appeared to be close to was his mother, who cooked his favorite meals, did his laundry daily — and bonded with him over shooting and guns. Investigators’ final report on last year’s school massacre in Newtown provided new insights into Nancy Lanza’s home life with her troubled adult son and renewed the debate over whether she bears any responsibility for the bloodbath that began with her own shooting death. “I think that we will always be bewildered by someone who did express her concern for her son, why she sought to have him engage with firearms,” Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Tuesday. “Not even those folks who oppose reasonable gun safety legislation would argue that it was a good idea to have someone who was evidencing

this kind of disturbance have possession of the kinds of weapons that he had possession of.” Adam Lanza’s fascination with violence was apparent to teachers and other acquaintances. He collected materials on mass killings and kept a spreadsheet ranking of mass murders. But his mother was not allowed to enter his bedroom, according to the report, and it was not clear how much she knew about his obsession. While the details released Monday led some observers to direct their anger at her, suggesting she was more enabler than victim, others were more sympathetic. A friend of Nancy Lanza’s, Marvin LaFontaine, said that she was a devoted mother to her two sons and that she showed up at Adam’s elementary school to protect him when he was picked on by other children. “She lived for her kids. I thought she was a wonderful parent. She would have done

anything for those kids,” LaFontaine said in a recent interview. Lanza, 20, shot his mother in the head four times Dec. 14, then drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he killed 20 first-graders and six women with a semi-automatic rifle. He committed suicide as police arrived. The report released Monday by the lead investigator, State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III, detailed some of the family’s efforts to address the needs of a young man described as withdrawn, lacking an appreciation of other’s feelings, and beset with “significant mental health issues.” He had evaluations of many types over the years, he was home-schooled for a period because he did not like the noise at Newtown High School, and he refused medications and behavior therapies that were suggested for him.

Woman still misses abusive ex husband DEAR ABBY: I was married to a man who ruled my every move. After years of torture and abuse, I finally became frightened enough to leave. Since then I have met a wonderful, caring, loving man who I wouldn’t trade for the world. He treats me with kindness, respect and love. He makes me laugh and smile and appreciate life. I am allowed to be myself and function how I will. I am happier than I have ever been. My question is, sometimes I miss my emotionally and physically abusive ex. I have no desire to BE with him, but after all those years, it’s hard to adjust some days. Is something wrong with me? I would never leave my current relationship for my ex. I feel like I have found my soul mate. But these lingering thoughts trouble me. Am I normal? What do I do? I don’t have a girlfriend to confide in. —FOUND MY SOUL MATE

Statins can offer big benefits, small risks effects? In large clinical trials, up to one in 10 people taking a statin reported muscle aches, pains or weakness. That doesn’t necessarily mean the statin caused the muscle symptoms, but it’s worth noting. If you feel new muscle symptoms ASK after starting DOCTOR K. a statin, tell your doctor. He or she Dr. Anthony may advise you to stop it, Komaroff taking wait a month or two, and then try taking it again. If the muscle troubles return, your doctor can change the dose or type of statin, or take you off the drug.

There also is a rare side effect in which statins trigger a rapid and potentially life-threatening breakdown in muscle cells. It’s rare enough that I’ve never seen a patient with that problem. You also mentioned the connection between statins and diabetes. Statins can raise blood sugar levels — potentially enough to trigger a new diagnosis of diabetes. On the other hand, doctors frequently prescribe statins for people with diabetes. They do this to reduce the increased risk of heart disease. A recently published study indicated that long-term use of statins may increase a person’s risk of developing cataracts. That study requires confirmation from other studies before it can be accepted. Even if it proves to be true, you would have to weigh the risk of getting cataracts against

DEAR DOCTOR K: Lately I’ve been hearing more about the side effects of statins. For example, I’ve heard that they increase the risk of muscle problems and diabetes. How do I know if they’re still worth the risk? DEAR READER: I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: No drug is 100 percent safe. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take one if you need it. But you should continually weigh the risks and benefits. When it comes to cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, the benefits are proven. But your concerns are worth a closer look. Statins reduce high levels of “bad” (LDL) cholesterol. Bad cholesterol can lead to heart attacks, stroke and death from heart disease. Whatever your risk when you start taking a statin, the drug can lower it substantially. What about the side

DEAR FOUND: I’m touched that you would confide in me. Yes, you are normal. Time has a way of dulling emotional pain, and with time we tend to gloss over unpleasantness. I don’t think that what you are missing DEAR has much do with ABBY to HIM. What you may be missing is the Jeanne Phillips adrenaline rush you got from the drama.

the risk of heart disease. Cataracts that interfere with your vision can be easily corrected by surgery. The consequences of heart disease can be heart failure and sudden death. Another cause for concern has been that statins may cause memory loss. But large clinical trials have not shown this to be the case. If you’re still concerned, talk to your doctor about your personal risks and benefits. And remember that statins are only part of the equation. Whether or not you take a statin, don’t ignore healthy eating and regular exercise. They actually offer you more potent protection against heart disease than statins do. DR.

Chief of staff shows frustration WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; White House chief of staff Denis McDonough was ready to vent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had too much humble pie,â&#x20AC;? he fumed, striding into a top aideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Wing office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the last slice. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m full.â&#x20AC;? McDonough had just finished another hand-holding meeting with health care advocates anxious over the disastrous rollout of the health care law. For weeks, President Barack Obama and White House officials had been apologizing for and promising fixes to a faulty website and an unmet promise to insurance holders that they could keep their policies. McDonoughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message: It was time to change tactics, quit lamenting the problems and start emphasizing the benefits of the health care overhaul. When Obama assembled his second-term team last January, his new chief of staff promptly put his energetic stamp on things. He increased White House outreach to lawmakers, worked to rebuild relations with the Cabinet and stepped up contacts with business leaders. Ten months later, McDonough is trying to manage one of the roughest patches in Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidency as the White House labors to explain how the president got blindsided by the problematic enrollment launch of his health care law. As the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gatekeeper, McDonough is at the center of the maelstrom, the man charged with deciding what the president needs to know and when. With his periodic treks to the Capitol and his credentials as a former Senate staffer, McDonough has built a deep reserve of good will among lawmakers from both parties. But the botched health care rollout has angered many Democrats who wonder why

Child-abuse reports a challenge to assess

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The calls, reporting suspicions of child abuse and neglect, come in at a rate of nearly 10,000 a day, to hotlines and law-enforcement offices across the country. They add up to 3.4 million reports per year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a daunting challenge for state child protection agencies, which must sort out the flimsy or trivial claims from the credible and potentially dire ones, and make decisions that balance the rights of parents with the welfare of children. Many states, after initial screening, deem more than half the reports they receive to be unworthy of further investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In child protection, you AP are always walking a difficult line,â&#x20AC;? said Cindy Walcott, This Jan. 25 file photo shows President Denis McDonough, left, as his next chief deputy commissioner of Barack Obama with then-current White of staff, in the East Room of the White Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department for House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew, right, House in Washington.

investigators. In general, however, advocacy groups and academic experts credit child-protection agencies and their workers with trying their best, under often-challenging circumstances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Child protection workers are very valuable to our country,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Hmurovich, president of the Chicago-based advocacy group Prevent Child Abuse America and former director of Indianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Division of Family and Children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They often have to make determinations with limited information, and they care a lot.â&#x20AC;? Nationally, the standard practice is to vet all the calls coming in to the hotlines. Yet as that is done, federal data show that about 40 percent are soon â&#x20AC;&#x153;screened outâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; judged not to warrant further intervention or investigation. Among the reasons: The alleged maltreatment might be deemed innocuous, or the caller may fail to provide enough details for the agency to pursue. Of the 3.4 million reports received for the 2011 fiscal year, about 2 million â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or 60 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were â&#x20AC;&#x153;screened inâ&#x20AC;? to trigger some degree of state intervention, according to the latest federal figures. Of those cases, 680,000 ended up being substantiated as incidents of neglect and abuse. Even at that stage, there are options. The child-protection agency may open a formal child-abuse investigation or, in a less drastic step, it may assign social workers to assess a given familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s circumstances and offer counseling, support services or other intervention. Minnesota is at the forefront of a group of states pursuing this strategy, known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;differential response.â&#x20AC;?
