Is the worst over? Officials say

GOOD MORNING Indiana Christmas tree buyers urged to go green MUNCIE (AP) — Environmental officials and activists want Indiana residents to go green this Christmas. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management is urging Hoosiers to help the environment and the economy by buying Indianagrown Christmas trees this year instead of artificial ones. Indiana tree farms grow a wide variety of trees, though some — such as the popular Fraser fir — don’t grow well in the state. Most of those trees are brought in from places like Michigan or North Carolina, where soil conditions and temperatures are more conducive to their growth. That shouldn’t prevent people from checking out real trees instead of artificial ones, IDEM spokesman Dan Goldblatt said. “Unlike artificial trees, which are usually made of petroleum-based products and smell the same way a plastic shoe horn smells, a real Christmas tree can fill your home with fresh air and can be recycled,” Goldblatt told The Star Press. “Even after you cut the tree down and put it in your house, it continues to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen as long as it has a fresh water supply to keep it alive.” The Nature Conservancy, the Sierra Club and other environmental groups share his view, saying artificial trees typically made of metal and polyvinyl chloride aren’t biodegradable and often wind up in landfills after six to nine years. Real trees can be recycled into mulch or used as habitats for wildlife during the winter. “A lot of people, when they’re done with their tree, they put them outdoors on their property,” said Bob Beavers of Branch Ranch, a Christmas tree farm in Yorktown. “They’re a great home for birds to have a warm place to live in the winter.” Artificial trees are popular because they don’t drop needles on the floor or leave sap on people’s hands. They also appeal to people worried about how cutting down trees affects the environment.

Train derailment kills 4, hurts more than 60 NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City commuter train rounding a riverside curve derailed Sunday, killing four people and injuring more than 60 in a crash that threw passengers from the toppling cars and left a snaking chain of twisted wreckage just inches from the water. Some of the roughly 150 passengers on the early morning Metro-North train from Poughkeepsie to Manhattan were jolted from sleep around 7:20 a.m. to screams and the frightening sensation of their compartment rolling over on a bend in the Bronx where the Hudson and Harlem rivers meet. When the motion stopped, four or five of the seven cars had lurched off the rails. It was the latest accident in a troubled year for the nation’s second-biggest commuter railroad, which had never experienced a passenger death in an accident in its 31-year-history. “Four people lost their lives today in the holiday season, right after Thanksgiving,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a news conference. Eleven of the injured were believed to be critically injured and another six seriously hurt, according to the Fire Department. The train operator was among the injured, Cuomo said. The governor said the track did not appear to be faulty, leaving speed as a possible culprit for the crash. But he noted that the

Man injured in pickup rollover in Steuben County NEVADA MILLS — A Michigan man was injured when his pickup rolled over Sunday afternoon, the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department said. Alcohol is suspected to be involved of the crash, deputies said Emergency personnel responded at about 4:30 p.m. to the 5000 block of North C.R. 450W on a report of a personal injury accident. Arriving units located a 2005 Ford F-250 pickup in the yard at that location. The truck had gone off the road and struck a large rock, causing it to overturn. The pickup then struck a Steuben REMC utility pole. The driver, Jeffrey Haupt, 34, of Coldwater, Mich., had visible face and head injuries. He was transported to Cameron Hospital, Angola, for treatment of his injuries. He was wearing his seatbelt. The crash is still under investigation.

Birds provide highlight of a gloomy day Another dreary, gray-sky day, I thought as I sat at my desk one morning a few days before Thanksgiving trying to compose another article for the newspaper. But no words came, nor even a subject. I OUTDOOR shifted my NOTES gaze from the computer screen before Neil Case me to the bird feeder outside the window behind my computer. Four blue jays and a cardinal were on the feeder tray. Shifting my gaze further, looking in the trees of my yard, I spotted two black-capped chickadees, two tufted titmice, several goldfinches in winter drab plumage and one white-breasted nuthatch. All common feeder birds, birds that come to my feeder every day that the weather isn’t too windy this time of year, and some of them every day that the weather isn’t too windy

or wet throughout the year. The blue jays flew, and the chickadees, titmice, goldfinches and nuthatch began flying from the trees to the feeder and back to the trees. Three house sparrows and a house finch landed on the edge of the feeder tray. More common birds. None that I felt like writing about. Then I saw a bird on the ground near the road at the edge of my lawn. A robin. I focused my binoculars on the robin, though it was close enough, I didn’t need binoculars to identify it, and a second robin hopped from behind my lilac bush and into my view. I thought robins had gone south by now though a friend told me he had seen a flock of them a few days before. Moving the view through my binoculars to the lilac, I found two more robins, then in the tall cedar tree standing beside the lilac three more. With a flurry of wings a small flock of mourning doves descended, three landing on the bird feeder, four on the ground below. Also on the ground below the feeder were several dark-eyed juncos and a

flock of goldfinches, to use the prescribed designation from old English, a charm of finches. A red-bellied woodpecker and a downy woodpecker visited the feeder. There, outside my window, I had a collection of common, year-round feeder birds, blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, titmice, goldfinches, nuthatch, red-bellied and downy woodpecker. I had a species of bird, the robin, that comes to us in spring, stays with us through the summer and into the fall, then goes south for

the winter. I had a species of bird, the junco, that comes to us from farther north when the days get short and the weather turns cold. And it stays with us only in the winter. I had mourning doves which are sometimes with us in winter and sometimes not. I had started listing the species of birds I had seen and I realized as I did that I had forgotten the weather, the dullness of the sky. Then I realized if I listed all those birds and told a little about each I had an article. But I needed a highlight for the article, and as I was compiling my list one appeared. A flicker landed on the ground near the base of the cedar tree. This is another bird of fair weather to us and to other residents of

the northern half of the U.S., perhaps even more than a robin. But the flicker wasn’t my highlight. As I was watching it, another woodpecker landed on trunk near the base of the cedar, a bigger woodpecker, a pileated woodpecker. This is a bird of all seasons, a non-migrant, with a range over most of the eastern half of the U.S., southern Canada and the Pacific Northwest. But it is a woodland bird, and it’s uncommon or rare over all but the southern part of its range. Robins, juncos, flicker, pileated woodpecker, what did I care if the sky was gray?

Briefs Kids selling cookies busted in Indy; earns apology INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A nonprofit that promotes downtown Indianapolis has apologized to a youth group whose hot cocoa and cookie sale was shut down in a sweep of unauthorized food vendors. Indianapolis Downtown Inc. spokesman Bob Schultz said Sunday the Christ Church Cathedral youth group wasn’t among authorized food vendors during the Circle of Lights lighting ceremony on Monument Circle that drew tens of thousands of people Friday night. Indianapolis Downtown acknowledged Sunday it asked code enforcement officials to shut down unauthorized vendors. A city ordinance adopted for the 2012 Super Bowl requires city permits for sidewalk vendors during downtown events. The cookie sale typically raises about $1,000, but officials of the Episcopal church say sales totaled about $600 when halted. Schultz says Indianapolis Downtown will pay the difference to the group.

Man dies following stabbing; two others injured in Peru PERU (AP) — Police say a 19-year-old northern Indiana man has died following a stabbing and two other people have been injured . Peru Police Chief Jonie Kennedy said 19-year-old Brayton Kelsor died Sunday morning at Dukes Memorial Hospital shortly after the stabbings. The Peru Tribune reports police responding to a report of a stabbing after 2 a.m. found three people with injuries. A second, unidentified person was transported by helicopter to a Fort Wayne hospital. Police say a third person, 19-year-old Dominick Tyler of Bunker Hill, was treated for injuries and incarcerated in the Miami County Jail for underage drinking. It wasn’t clear whether Tyler had an attorney. Police say no one has been arrested for the stabbings.

Trooper found not guilty gets new job David Camm cleared of killing his family after three trials NEW ALBANY (AP) — A southern Indiana man acquitted of killing his wife and two children after 13 years in prison will work with a national nonprofit that advocates on behalf of criminal convicts it believes have been wrongfully accused. David Camm will work as a case coordinator for Investigating Innocence, which provides criminal-defense investigations for its clients, Bill Clutter, director of investigations for the group, told The (Louisville) CourierJournal for a story Sunday. Clutter, who was part of Camm’s defense team, helped found Investigating Innocence this year after moving to the Louisville area from Illinois, where he helped found the Illinois Innocence Project. Camm’s experience as a former Indiana State Police trooper and a prisoner of wrongful convictions will be key assets, Clutter said. “This is one of the most compelling cases of innocence I’ve ever seen,” Clutter said of Camm.

A jury acquitted the 49-year-old Camm on Oct. 24 in his third murder trial in connection with the shooting deaths of his wife, Kim, 35, and children, 7-year-old Brad and Jill, 5, at their home in Georgetown, about 15 miles west of Louisville. The September 2000 slayings occurred shortly after Camm left the state police. Camm’s two previous convictions were overturned on appeal. Camm had maintained his innocence throughout his trials. Camm’s first case for Investigating Innocence will be working with Texas death row inmate Darlie Routier, who was convicted of fatally stabbing a 5-year-old son, Damon, in 1997. She also was charged with killing Damon’s 6-year-old brother, Devon, but was not tried for that death. Routier contends an unidentified intruder killed the boys and stabbed her in their suburban Dallas home. Her conviction came

after key testimony from Tom Bevel, a bloodstain pattern expert used by prosecutors during Camm’s trials. Kim Camm’s father,

Frank Renn, said he had not heard of David Camm’s new job until told by a reporter. “Right now, David is putting on a show for the

I-69 extension uses a new kind of dirt work EVANSVILLE (AP) — Work on the next phase of Interstate 69, a 27-mile stretch between Bloomington and Crane, Ind., is in full swing — but that doesn’t mean any asphalt is being laid. Instead, workers are doing “dirt work” — the kind of dirty work necessary when you build what the Indiana Department of Transportation calls a new-terrain interstate. “You’re moving the dirt that’s in its place and getting it to a specific elevation, so you may have to cut down hills or fill in valley areas,” said INDOT spokeswoman Cher Elliott. “So that way, when they pour the concrete for the roadway, it is at a certain elevation. It’s the moving of the dirt to smooth it out. We don’t just plane it off. We have a lot of compacting work that has to take place so that (the dirt) is established and solid

before we put the road on top of it. “We won’t see actual mainline pavement being poured until sometime next year,” she told the Evansville Couirer & Press, This section of I-69 will be completed late next year or early 2015, with weather conditions being the determining factor. In November, INDOT announced plans to rename the nearly 21 miles of the existing Interstate 164 in Vanderburgh and Warrick counties Interstate 69 in about a year. With final approval from the Federal Highway Administration, new signage will be installed in the fall of 2014. A 142-mile I-69 corridor that will run from Evansville to Indianapolis is divided into six independent sections, the first three of which opened in November 2012. Sixty-seven new miles of I-69 opened between

Interstate 64 and Crane on Nov. 19, 2012. Supporters call I-69 a key ingredient to any formula for enhancing Southwestern Indiana’s economic vitality and a way to improve access to jobs, education and health care for that region. I-69 now ends at U.S. 231 in the southwest portion of Greene County. It then traverses east to State Road 37 on the edge of Bloomington. U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon, who represents Indiana’s 8th District, said he is in close touch with INDOT and Gov. Mike Pence’s office about I-69’s overall progress. Bucshon and several other House members in September launched the bipartisan Interstate 69 Congressional Caucus to tout the strategic importance of I-69 as a freight corridor. Bucshon said he drove past the section between Crane and Bloomington

on Tuesday, reporting no apparent problems with the work ongoing. The second-term congressman holds out hope that he can get federal money for I-69 construction next year. “One thing that will be important is that, at the federal level we’re going to be working on a new highway bill again, starting in January,” Bucshon said. “Hopefully, we’ll make sure we continue to secure Indiana’s share of the federal highway money that some wish could be used for I-69.”

The projected cost of I-69’s Crane-to-Bloomington section: $470.5 million, which is to be paid in seven contracts to a prime contractor and subcontractors who perform such tasks as marking pavement, installing signs, doing grass seed and sod or paving. “Things are moving very well. We haven’t run into many issues or concerns. Work through that corridor has been the same as what we saw in sections one through three, where we’ve had to close some county roads while construction was taking place,” Elliott said.

Speed a factor in actor Walker’s deadly crash LOS ANGELES (AP) — Investigators sought to determine the cause of a fiery crash that killed “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker while the 40-yearold actor’s fans erected a makeshift memorial Sunday near where the Porsche he was riding in smashed into a light pole and tree. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said speed was a factor in Saturday’s one-car crash, though it will take time to determine how fast the car was going. Because Walker is so closely associated with the underground culture of street racing portrayed in the popular “Fast & Furious” film franchise, the fatal accident had an eerie quality — a tragic end for a Hollywood hero of speed. The crash also killed Walker’s friend and financial adviser Roger

Rodas, according to Walker’s publicist, Ame Van Iden. She said Walker was a passenger in the car when the two drove away in a 2005 red Porsche Carrera GT from a Walker fundraiser in the community of Valencia, about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Sheriff’s deputies found the car engulfed in flames when they arrived at the site of the crash, near the fundraiser at Rodas’ sport car dealership. Officials have not identified either person found in the car. On Sunday, fans of Walker, 40, gathered to leave flowers, candles and memorabilia from the action movies.

Sheriff’s deputies work near the wreckage of a Porsche that crashed into a light pole on Hercules Street near Kelly Johnson Parkway in Valencia, Calif., Saturday. A publicist for actor

Walker is “gone but he’ll never be forgotten because there are so many people that look up to him,” Joel Perez, 23, told the Los Angeles Times at the memorial. Sheriff’s deputy Peter Gomez said investigators are working to determine how fast the car was traveling and what caused it to go out of control, including whether the driver was distracted

Paul Walker says the star of the “Fast & Furious” movie series died in the crash north of Los Angeles. He was 40. Ame Van Iden says Walker died Saturday afternoon.

or something in the road prompted him to swerve. After the Porsche crashed into a light pole and tree, it burst into flames. The downed light pole had a speed limit sign of 45 mph. Walker rode the “Fast & Furious” franchise to fame, starring in all but one of the six action blockbusters, beginning with the first film in 2001. He had been on break from shooting the

seventh installment; production began in September and while much of the film has been shot, it’s incomplete. Universal Pictures has not said what it plans to do with “Fast & Furious 7,” which currently is slated for release in July. Walker and Rodas had attended a fundraiser benefiting victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines.

Connecticut university to test marijuana for contaminants WEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The microscope at the University of New Haven, set at 10-times magnification, shows a marijuana leaf covered with dozens of tiny bumps. It’s mold, and someone, somewhere could be smoking similarly contaminated pot and not have a clue. Heather Miller Coyle, a forensic botanist and associate professor at the university, says all sorts of nasty things not visible to the naked eye have been found in marijuana — mold, mildew, insect parts, salmonella and E. coli, to name a few. That’s why Coyle and her students earlier this year began developing a new process to detect contaminants in marijuana through DNA profiling and analysis. The aim is to be able to identify potentially harmful substances through a testing method that could make the analysis easier and quicker for labs across the country in the developing industry of marijuana quality control testing. Twenty states and Washington, D.C., now allow medical marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation, and Washington state and Colorado have legalized the recreational pot use. Connecticut and Washington state already require testing and other states are doing the same,

spawning a testing industry. “If there’s no certification … it’s like saying we don’t check our meat for mad cow disease,” Coyle said. “That’s our goal as a private university, to develop the tools to address or mediate this issue.” A number of labs around the country are testing marijuana for contaminants using different methods, many of which have been around for decades and used to test other plants, including food crops, for harmful substances. The health effects of marijuana tainted with mold, pesticides and other contaminants aren’t clear, said Mason Tvert, a Colorado-based spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington, D.C. The project was founded in 1995 to lobby for the reduction or elimination of penalties for marijuana use. “Although we have not seen significant problems with tainted marijuana in the past, we should certainly be taking steps to make sure it’s not a problem in the future,” Tvert said. “We have never seen a death solely associated with marijuana use. The same certainly can’t be said of alcohol and other drugs.” Food and Drug Administration records from 1997-2005 show no cases

in which marijuana was the primary suspected cause of death, but the drug was listed as a secondary suspected cause contributing to 279 deaths. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in July that an “epidemic” of synthetic drug use has caused rising numbers of deaths and emergency room visits. One study released earlier this year, however, found that pesticide residues on cannabis are transferred to inhaled marijuana smoke, possibly posing a “significant toxicological threat.” The study was done by The Werc Shop, an independent testing lab for medical cannabis in Pasadena, Calif., and published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Toxicology. Marijuana can develop mold from an inadequate

I watched my father closely to see what he would do. A playful smile appeared on his face. The twinkle in his eyes shone brighter than any Christmas lights. Holding the ball and reaching forward, Dad bounced it on the floor then caught it. This action was repeated. Nodding approvingly, he then turned toward our assembled group. Gently tossing the ball away, Dad began a game of catch. The ball continued to be passed through eager pairs of outstretched hands. Cries of “Over here!” rang through the warm kitchen. Dad’s active participation in this game was remarkable to me, since he had advanced Alzheimer’s disease. This dementia had robbed him

Following Christmas dinner, my family was relaxing around the kitchen table. We had all enjoyed traditional turkey, sweet potatoes lightly glazed with brown sugar, and a final wedge of pumpkin pie topped with a dollop of ice cream. The good cooking smells still lingered; the oven remained warm. My sister, our chef, was basking in the compliments — “Fabulous meal,” “I really couldn’t eat another bite,” “Everything was wonderful.” Dad had risen from his chair and was contentedly standing nearby. My nephew, never one to sit still for too long, began dribbling his new basketball around the table and throughout the kitchen. Upon nearing Dad, he stopped — almost uncertainly. With shaking, wrinkled hands, Dad had reached out for the ball. He did not speak, and the boy, confused, looked up and over at us. It took some convincing, but the ball was gingerly passed over.

of many memories and the recognition of people, places and points in time. Despite this, Dad clearly recognized the ball and what you could do with it. In my younger years, playing with Dad was rare. To his credit, Dad worked hard and provided for us. He was very private and never showed or shared much emotion; his game of choice was chess, which he did eventually teach me how to play. As an adult, I had become a caregiver and watched helplessly as Dad declined. Connecting moments between father and son had been few and far between before he took the basketball. I’m not sure how long we played catch. Watching the clock was not important. Dad gleefully led us until he began to tire. What I do know is that our game ended all too soon, and it was time to face the reality of dirty dishes piled high on countertops. The moment, though, will certainly last forever. On this Christmas, Dad gave me a special memory — one that I will always treasure.

Peters said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kind of lost touch with the piece for the next six years as I was doing my undergrad and graduate

degrees. When I came back and I decided I was going to work here, I got together with (local Peters directors) Lynn Syler and Jeri Mow and told them I always wanted to do something like this, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that any one church choir could do it on their own, so I wanted to incorporate all the choirs or as many as we could.â&#x20AC;? After Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production, Peters will put â&#x20AC;&#x153;Messiahâ&#x20AC;? out of his mind for about a month, then start studying it again and start preparing for the next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production; hopefully, he says, at a completed Furth Center for the Arts at Trine.

as a career, Peters is content working at Powerscreen of Indiana, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in information technology and sales. He pursues music outside of work, teaching two nights a week at Trine and studying on his own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought a career in music necessarily was my calling,â&#x20AC;?

Nearby residents awoke to a building-shaking boom. Angel Gonzalez was in bed in his high-rise apartment overlooking the rail curve when he heard the roar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was a plane that crashed,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mike Gallo heard the same noise as he was walking his dog. He looked down at the tracks and â&#x20AC;&#x153;knew it was a tragedy right away. I saw injured people climbing out of the train.â&#x20AC;? Within minutes, dozens of emergency crews arrived and carried passengers away on stretchers, some wearing neck braces. Others,

bloodied and scratched, held ice packs to their heads. Firefighters shattered windows of the toppled train cars to reach passengers, and they used pneumatic jacks and air bags to make sure they uncovered any victims who might have been pinned by train seats or other objects. Police divers searched the waters to make sure no one had been thrown in. Other emergency crews scoured the surrounding woods. Federal investigators planned to turn the cars upright to be certain no one was trapped beneath.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Despite having the NBA’s best record, the Indiana Pacers realize there’s always room for improvement. David West scored 14 of his 24 points in the third quarter and grabbed 12 rebounds, Paul George had 27 points, and the Pacers improved their best start in franchise history to 16-1 on Sunday with a 105-100 victory that snapped the Los Angeles Clippers’ four-game winning streak. “We can become a lot better. We’re still nowhere close to where we want to be offensively, and that’s the next step for us,” George said. “The defense is clicking well, the transition defense is clicking well, and we’re playing like a team. This was a great win for us. We knew coming in that it was going to be a hard-fought game.” Jamal Crawford led the Clippers with 20 points — the 10th time this season that a Pacers opponent didn’t have anyone with more than 20. Chris Paul

had 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Blake Griffin scored 16 and pulled down 12 rebounds, equaling teammate DeAndre Jordan’s total. “We’re always up for a challenge, and we had a good one today,” said center Roy Hibbert, who helped fuel the Pacers’ seventh straight win with 19 points. “The Clippers are going to be a contender for the Western Conference finals, so we just had to get in there and grind it out today and finish it off. But we have a lot more work to do. We don’t worry about swagger. We’re just five individuals out there on the court playing together.” The defending Pacific Division champion Clippers played their first game since finding out that J.J. Redick will be sidelined six to eight weeks because of a broken bone in his shooting hand and a ligament tear in his right elbow. Redick will be re-evaluated on Monday by hand specialist Dr. Steve Shin to determine what further course of treatment will be necessary. His injuries, which

occurred in Friday night’s 104-98 overtime win at Sacramento, complicated things even more for the Clippers with reserve forward Matt Barnes missing his sixth straight game due to an eye injury. “The ligament looks intact, so they shouldn’t have to operate on that,” Redick said. “It’s just the fragments of the bone. It’s still swollen and there’s some pain there. It’s frustrating, because I have enjoyed those 17 games immensely.” Los Angeles used the same starting lineup in each of its first 16 games before Paul sat out Friday’s game with a right hamstring strain. Rivers opted to continue using Jamal Crawford off the bench despite his 31-point outing at Sacramento, so Willie Green started in Redick’s place and scored only two points in 15 minutes. George powered the Pacers to a 53-47 halftime lead with 18 points. The Clippers trailed by 11 late in the first quarter before taking their only lead, 41-40.

lead over the Titans (5-7) with four left and a sweep of the season series. The Colts can wrap up their eighth AFC South title in 11 seasons with one more win, one more Titans loss or a tie by either team. It hasn’t been easy reaching this point, especially after losing five offensive starters with season-ending injuries, and with Trent Richardson struggling.

SOUTH BEND (AP) — As Notre Dame coach Mike Brey continues to tinker with his lineup early in the season, he decided Sunday to go small and see what he got. Brey inserted freshman Demetrius Jackson into the lineup to give the Fighting Irish three guards to go with guard/forward Pat Connaughton and center Garrick Sherman. That lineup responded with Notre Dame’s highest scoring game this season, a 101-67 rout of Cornell at Purcell Pavilion. Jerian Grant scored 20 points to reach 1,000 for his career, Eric Atkins added 19 points and Connaughton had 18 points and 10 rebounds as all five Irish starters reached double figures. “We just wanted to start a different way,” Brey said. “I’ve liked that lineup in stretches in previous games, and I liked it in practice. “I’m still searching.” Despite the success his guard-heavy group had against Cornell, nothing is set in stone. With a trip to face No. 23 Iowa in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge on Tuesday, Brey still isn’t sure which lineup will be on the floor at any given time.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Vinatieri still has it. Donald Brown does, too. When both delivered throwback performances Sunday, it lifted the Indianapolis Colts closer to the playoffs.

Brown, the Colts’ forgotten 2009 first-round pick, scored on a 4-yard TD run with 1:56 left to give Indianapolis a 22-14 victory over Tennessee. “Those are by no means chip shots,” Andrew Luck said after another troubling offensive showing with only 264 total yards. “To have a guy like that (Vinatieri), it, well, it really makes a difference.” Indy (8-4) has a three-game

Red Wings earn fourth-consecutive victory OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Daniel Alfredsson scored an empty-net goal and added an assist in his return to Ottawa, and the Detroit Red Wings beat the host Senators 4-2 on Sunday night. Alfredsson, the former longtime captain of the Senators, wasn’t primarily responsible for Ottawa’s second straight loss and fourth consecutive at home, but he helped contribute to the continuation of his ex-team’s woes. Like so many times in their previous 27 games in the post-Alfredsson era, something was missing for the Senators (10-134). Defensive breakdowns led to goals, and there wasn’t enough offense to compensate. Drew Miller scored twice, Johan Franzen added a goal, and Jonas Gustavsson made 29 saves for Detroit. Clarke MacArthur and Mika Zibanejad had goals for Ottawa. The Senators were 0-for-4 on the power play, and the Red

Wings seemed to capitalize on every mistake. MacArthur scored his eighth goal of the season, and Zibanejad made things interesting late, but it wasn’t enough for the Senators to improve to 3-0 against the Red Wings. Ottawa won the first two meetings in Detroit. Gustavsson, who like Alfredsson is a native of Gothenburg, Sweden, earned the victory, and countryman Robin Lehner took the loss. The pregame fanfare was all about Alfredsson, who spent 17 seasons with the Senators, including the final 14 as captain. A lackluster first period followed a 67-second video tribute to Alfredsson, but the 40-year-old right-winger was involved in the scoring when it began in the second. The Red Wings, who won their fourth straight, haven’t lost since the Senators beat them on Nov. 23.

Manning throws for 5 TDs in win over Chiefs KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Peyton Manning threw for 403 yards and five touchdowns, four to Eric Decker, and the Denver Broncos held off a furious rally to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 35-28 Sunday and seize control of the AFC West. Decker had eight catches for a career-high 174 yards for the Broncos (10-2), who moved a game clear of the Chiefs (9-3) in the division. With four games left, Denver also holds the tiebreaker by virtue of two wins over Kansas City in the last three weeks. Jamaal Charles had 93 yards rushing for the Chiefs, and capped a 17-play drive with a 1-yard touchdown run with 6:32 left in the game to close within a touchdown. After forcing a punt with 3:32 remaining, Kansas City used three long pass plays to move deep into Broncos territory. But Alex Smith’s pass to Dwayne Bowe in the end zone on fourth-and-4 with 1:45 left fell incomplete. Vikings 23, Bears 20, OT Blair Walsh’s 34-yard field goal with 1:43 left in overtime gave the Vikings the victory after both teams missed kicks in the extra period. Adrian Peterson rushed 35 times for 211 yards for the Vikings (3-8-1), who tied Green Bay the previous week. Peterson had two 11-yard runs on the final drive to get well within range for Walsh, who missed a 57-yard try earlier in overtime. Walsh had to kick that one because Rhett Ellison was called for a 15-yard face-mask penalty to wipe out a 39-yard make by Walsh that would’ve ended the game. The Bears (6-6) then reached the 29-yard line, but coach Marc Trestman called for a field goal on second-and-7. Robbie Gould’s 47-yarder went wide right. Panthers 27, Buccaneers 6 Cam Newton threw for 263 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score, and the Panthers earned a franchise-record eighth straight regular-season victory. Newton threw touchdown passes to Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn Jr. and “Superman” leaped over the pile for another score as the Panthers (9-3) outgained the Buccaneers 426-206. The Carolina victory sets up a huge showdown next Sunday night with New Orleans with first place in the NFC South on the line.

Newton ran for 68 yards and overcame two interceptions. The third-year quarterback has thrown for 13 touchdown passes and run for five scores during the Panthers’ current win streak. Carolina’s defense came in allowing the fewest points in the league and flexed its muscles again, forcing two turnovers and sacking rookie Mike Glennon four times to snap a three-game winning streak for Tampa Bay (3-9). Glennon had thrown a touchdown pass in an NFL record eight straight games to start his career. Bengals 17, Chargers 10 Andy Dalton threw a go-ahead, 21-yard touchdown pass to wide-open A.J. Green late in the third quarter and the AFC North-leading Bengals (8-4), coming off their bye, kept a two-game lead over Baltimore. San Diego (5-7) lost the momentum it gained with a thrilling comeback win at Kansas City a week earlier and saw its playoff hopes dwindle after its fourth loss in five games. With the score tied at 7, the Bengals got the ball after Dre Kirkpatrick ripped it away from tight end Antonio Gates after a reception at the Cincinnati 25, the Chargers’ third turnover. Ten plays later, Green split the defense for an easy touchdown, with safety Eric Weddle and cornerback Marcus Gilchrist only able to watch. Eagles 24, Cardinals 21 Nick Foles threw three touchdown passes and the Eagles held on. Zach Ertz had two TD catches, LeSean McCoy ran for 79 yards and the Eagles (7-5) won their fourth straight to remain tied with Dallas for first place in the NFC East. Carson Palmer threw for 302 yards and three TD passes, but also had two interceptions and lost a fumble as the Cardinals (7-5) had their four-game winning streak snapped. Foles picked up where he left off in November, when he was the NFC’s Player of the Month and tied an NFL record with seven TDs in a game. Foles finished 21 of 34 for 237 yards against a defense ranked eighth. Foles set a team record for most passes without an interception (233), breaking Michael Vick’s mark of 224 set in 2010. He also moved within one TD pass of

tying Peyton Manning’s mark of 20 and zero interceptions to start a season. Patriots 34, Texans 31 Tom Brady threw for 371 yards and two scores, and Stephen Gostkowski made two long field goals in the fourth quarter. The Texans’ franchise-record skid reached 10 games. Gary Kubiak coached from the sideline for the first time since suffering a mini-stroke Nov. 3. He missed one game before working the last two games from the booth.

Wrestling Levitz leads Prairie Heights at invite WEST LAFAYETTE — Sophomore Doug Levitz won the 145-pound championship to lead Prairie Heights at Lafayette Harrison’s War on the Wabash tournament Friday and Saturday. Levitz won all 10 of his matches by first period pins in a time span of 8 minutes, 49 seconds. The Panthers were 4-6 in their seasonopening competition over the weekend. They beat Rossville 50-30, Hammond Gavit 69-6, Griffith 48-25 and Fairfield 54-23. Heights lost to the state’s 18th-ranked team Lake Central 40-34 and also lost to host Harrison 62-6, LaPorte 39-33, South Bend Riley 50-27, Goshen 48-31 and Columbus North 43-33.

minutes left. Ben Tate ran for 102 yards and three touchdowns for the Texans (2-10), who haven’t won since Sept. 15. It was the first 100-yard rushing game since 2011 for Tate, who has been slowed since Oct. 20 with four broken ribs. The victory ended a three-game road skid for the Patriots, who have won 16 of their last 17 December games. 49ers 23, Rams 13 Anquan Boldin caught nine passes from Colin Kaepernick, and Michael Crabtree made his long-awaited season debut six months after Achilles tendon surgery. Kaepernick threw for 275 yards and Frank Gore ran for a 3-yard touchdown as the reigning NFC champion Niners (8-4) boosted their position in the playoff picture. Crabtree had a 60-yard catch, while Vernon Davis

hurdled into the end zone on a 17-yard reception. With Hall of Famer Jerry Rice in the house, Boldin made six of his receptions in the first half on the way to his secondmost productive game of the year behind his 13-catch performance in the opener against Green Bay. Phil Dawson kicked three field goals, and San Francisco’s swarming defense rattled Kellen Clemens and the Rams (5-7) all day. Dolphins 23, Jets 3 Ryan Tannehill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns, leading Miami past the listless Jets to keep the Dolphins in the playoff mix. The Dolphins (6-6) played with more of a sense of urgency while sending the Jets (5-7) to their third straight loss. New York also has a quarterback controversy on its hands as Geno Smith was benched in favor of Matt Simms after a dismal first half. Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace had touchdown receptions for Miami, while Tannehill finished 28 for 43 with an interception. Smith was 4 for 10 for 29 yards with an interception and an 8.3 quarterback rating before being replaced by Simms, who went 9 for 18 for 79 yards and an interception as New York’s postseason hopes were severely damaged. Jaguars 32, Browns 28 Cecil Shorts caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Chad Henne with 40 seconds left, rallying the Jaguars. On third-and-9, Henne lofted a perfect pass to the left corner for Shorts, who had beaten cornerback Joe Haden to get open. Shorts got both feet down in the end zone before tumbling out of bounds. It was a dream moment for Shorts, who grew up in Cleveland. Henne drove the Jaguars (3-9) 80 yards in nine plays for the winning TD. The Browns (4-8) had taken a 28-25 lead on Brandon Weeden’s 95-yard TD pass to Josh Gordon with 3:55 remaining. Gordon returned from a head injury and finished with 10 catches for a team record 261 yards. Gordon is the first player in NFL history to have consecutive 200-yard games. He had 237 in a loss last week against Pittsburgh.

So coach Chuck Pagano shook up things after two blowout losses in the last three weeks. He surprised many by moving Brown into the starting lineup ahead of Richardson, the No. 3 overall pick in 2012 by Cleveland who Indy traded for in September. Pagano replaced Mike McGlynn at right guard with Jeff Linkenbach and also started cornerback Darius Butler ahead of Cassius Vaughn. Vaughn picked off two of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s passes, and Brown continued to beat up on the Titans despite rushing for only 8 yards in the first 52 minutes. He had 46 yards on the final drive and gave Indy its only touchdown. “I guess it was time to put something together and with the division hanging in the balance, the guys manned up,” Pagano said, explaining that Brown earned a rare start and the two backs would both continue rotate. “Just like the first game down there, we were able to run the ball, chew up the clock.” They needed Vinatieri even more than Brown. The soon-to-be 41-yearold resembled his much younger self, tying a career high with four field goals in the first half and matching his full-game career high when he hit a perfect 49-yarder for a 15-14 lead late in the third quarter. His fifth field goal also equaled Jason Elam’s NFL record with a 16th 100-point season, and he joined

and one interception. Fitzpatrick wasn’t much better. Though he scored on a 1-yard plunge in the first half and gave the Titans a 14-12 lead in the third quarter on an ugly 1-yard TD pass to Chris Johnson, Fitzpatrick was 21 of 37 for 201 yards with one TD. Johnson managed only 69 yards on 18 carries. “I didn’t play well. We had a shot at the end there,” Fitzpatrick said. “I didn’t get the job done, and it hurts. For me to come out and not play well hurts.” The miscues proved costly. Tennessee gave away three points just before halftime when Moise Fokou’s personal foul AP extended the half by one Indianapolis Colts’ play. Vinatieri cashed in Andrew Luck (12) looks with a 37-yarder. to throw during Sunday’s Then, after taking the NFL football game against 14-12 lead, Fitzpatrick had the Tennessee Titans. the Titans in scoring position again until NFL sacks leader Morten Andersen as the only Robert Mathis stripped him of the ball. Jerrell Freeman players to score 800 points scooped it up and ran it to with two teams. He’s the 10th player in league history the Titans 32. Four plays later, Vinatieri hit the to make four 40-yard field 49-yarder to give Indy the goals in a game. lead for good. To Vinatieri, it was just “It puts us in a spot now another work day. where we’ve got to win “You never know how four games in a row,” coach it’s going to go, and you Mike Munchak said. “We don’t know how you’re have no control of what that going to be needed and may or may not mean.” used,” he said. “Today was Fitzpatrick was picked one of those days that I was off two more times before needed and used a bunch.” Brown sealed it with his Without him, the Colts might be lamenting their first strong run up the middle. “Pros grind it out,” back-to-back losses since Brown said. “They take it December 2011. one week at a time and just Luck was just 17 of 32 keep rolling along.” for 200 yards with no TDs

SPORTS BRIEFS • Meyer won’t suspend ejected Ohio State players COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says the players ejected from the Michigan game for fighting will not be suspended for the Big Ten championship game. Running back Dontre Wilson and offensive lineman Marcus Hall were kicked out of Saturday’s game when a skirmish broke out after a kickoff return in the second quarter. Meyer said Sunday that he will meet with athletic director Gene Smith and speak with Big Ten officials about the fight. A Big Ten spokesman said Saturday that the league would have to review video of the play before deciding if any players would be punished further. After Hall was ejected, he made an obscene gesture toward Michigan fans while heading to the locker room. The second-ranked Buckeyes face No. 10 Michigan State this Saturday in Indianapolis.

Florida State is No. 1, Ohio State No. 2, Auburn No. 3 in AP poll NEW YORK (AP) — Florida State is the new No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll, followed by Ohio State at No. 2 and No. 3 Auburn, which shook up the national title race by upsetting Alabama. The Crimson Tide had been No. 1 since the preseason as it pursued a third consecutive national championship. But Alabama was stunned at Auburn on Saturday, losing 34-28 on the last play of the game. That cleared the way for the Seminoles to be No. 1 for the first time since Oct. 1, 2000, the season after their last national title. Florida State received 58 first-place votes Sunday. Auburn got two. Ohio State received 1,418 points, while Auburn had 1,387. Alabama fell to No. 4. No. 5 Missouri will play Auburn for the Southeastern Conference title.

IRISH: Grant tops 1,000 career points for Irish FROM PAGE B1

“I told them after the game, ‘You know, in Iowa City on Tuesday, who knows who finishes? I have no idea, so all ten of you be ready,’” Brey said. Nolan Cressler scored 17 points and Robert Hatter had 15 to pace Cornell, which has now lost 15 in a row dating back to last season, one away from tying the school record longest losing streak of 16, set in the 1972-73 season. The Big Red, which won 29 games and advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2010, is 0-9 for the first time since 1904-05, when it started 0-10. After starting the game 2-for-10, Notre Dame (5-1) found the range, shooting over 62 percent from the field in the second half. The Irish also had 28 assists against just five turnovers, and broke the 100-point mark for the first time since its 5-overtime upset of Louisville last season. “With the new starting lineup we have, we’re going to score a lot more points and be on the fastbreak a lot more,” Grant said. “And defensively, I think it helps us a lot with us four being able to press full-court a little bit.” Grant’s three-point play with 7:18 remaining got him to the 1,000-point mark, making him the 55th Irish player to accomplish that. “It feels good,” Grant said. “It’s an elite group of people, 50-some people, so just to be able to be in that group is exciting.” Cornell, which finished 8 of 21 from the arc, hit its first two 3-pointers and scored the game’s first eight points before the Irish got it going. Notre Dame scored the next 10 points, and went on a 22-4 run to go up by 10 with 8:39 to play in the first half. Cornell hit just 1 of 11 shots, including seven straight misses, during that nine-minute stretch. “At first, starting out 8-0, it didn’t look like it was working out too well. But we finally got it clicking a little bit,” Atkins said.

Sign of truly positive jobs report would be decline of stock prices

BY MICHAEL J. HICKS

Each month I am perplexed by silly interpretations of the jobs report that pop up around otherwise respectable news outlets around the country. The last one was a perfect example: With the economy creating 204,000 jobs several reporters claimed that U.S. stocks were buoyed by a good jobs report. That is where the silliness begins. Firstly, the jobs report was downright rotten. Secondly, were the jobs numbers actually good, stocks would be likely to decline in anticipation of the Federal Reserve ending their $85 billion-a-month purchase of bonds and mortgages. Hicks At first blush 200,000 new jobs would be welcomed news, as it is almost half the number of monthly jobs we need to be seeing each month to return our labor markets to normalcy by the end of the decade. Alas, the Department of Labor publishes much more For more than 220,000 detailed data workers to shift to full each month, and in that time in one month is lurks dark shadows of a likely evidence of heightstill stagnant ened financial distress in economy. Last month many families. more than 700,000 folks quit looking for work — more than three times the number who found jobs. Of those 200,000 net new job-holders, more than six in 10 had to settle for part time jobs because of a weak economy. In normal times that number is something like one in 20. Overall, part-time employment is dropping, but that is because more people who voluntarily work part time are moving to full-time positions. A healthy economy should have lots of folks who choose to work part time in order to have time to take care of family, to attend school or to pursue other passions. For more than 220,000 workers to shift to full time in one month is likely evidence of heightened financial distress in many families. Overall, part-time employment is holding steady, allowing Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius to dismiss reporters who question whether the Affordable Care Act is weakening labor markets. Her economic analysis isn’t any better than her management of website development. So far this year, the majority of new jobs have been part-time positions to workers who want to work full time, while just last month more than 200,000 voluntary part-time workers shifted to full-time work. This is a sign that labor markets are weak, and weakening. There is scant evidence that things are getting better. Perhaps the only sign is that manufacturing jobs accounted for the second highest number of new jobs. Still, retail was No. 1 and motels No. 3. The plain fact is that American labor markets are astonishingly weak, and the stock markets know this lessens pressure on the Federal Reserve to end its quantitative easing program, hence the stock market jump following Friday’s dismal jobs report. The major news reports got it exactly wrong. Sadly, we are going to get a good confirmation of that when the Fed ends its quantitative easing.

Letters to The Editor • Letters column should be open to differing opinions

Much reason for joyful celebration of Jesus’ birth

To the editor: I read the letter submitted by H. Jordan Truman and published Nov. 18 with great concern. Mr. Truman criticized the editorial board of this newspaper for allowing a letter containing falsehoods to be published “without either correction or comment,” and extolling them to do better. He further cited the example of The Los Angeles Times not publishing letters critical of the idea of man-made global warming, and then cited four things he claimed were true, not changeable by any amount of opinion. I, for one, am appalled by his argument. Who is Mr. Truman to say that a letter to the editor submitted by anyone is not acceptable to print simply because it contains a viewpoint which differs from his own? His citations regarding Obamacare, voter fraud and global warming are not universally accepted as truth, but are widely disputed and open for debate. Should his letters not be published without correction or comment because I consider what he claims to be falsehoods? Absolutely not! The editorial board is within their 1st Amendment rights when they decide the fate of a submitted letter, and to their credit, they have not been guilty of political censorship. We are all within our 1st Amendment rights when we submit a letter to the editor, regardless of our differing opinions. Mr. Truman’s letter, unfortunately, reveals an intolerance toward opposing viewpoints and a willingness to support selective enforcement of free speech.

To the editor: I know some of you think I’m way off when it comes to religious beliefs. Am I? Or is it you? All religions are based on unprovable beliefs — the most notable being beliefs in heaven and hell. And these beliefs have etched a stronghold in human behavior because of their appeal to our strongest emotions — greed and fear. Because of the promise of “a better life if you believe as I say” (or hell if you don’t), an unbeliever is always condemned by believers. I can look back and see that I have been more of an asset than a liability. I have helped more people than I have hurt. I’ve taught many people the joy of living and the satisfaction that comes from helping others. I’ve received many thank yous from three books I had published: “Learn to Love & Love to Learn” by Xlibris, “HE Was Born Again” by Publish America, and my first self-published book, “Developing a Point of View.” My fourth, an essay named “Recipes for Living,” is due out of the copyright office at any time. I can live joyfully day to day without greedily wishing to live in paradise or fear going to hell. I know we want to believe in such places, but to date they are still man-made aspirations. I’m confident those who wrote the Bible, the Koran and other holy books were inspired by their concepts of God, and wrote what they thought to be true. But I also know that regardless of our inspirations, without logical proof — the kind God makes available to us by rigorous study and observation — religious stories Morgan Rigg are not always accurate. For example, a Butler worldwide flood would require over 27,675

feet of rain over all the earth in 40 days and nights. (Two-thirds of the earth is at sea-level, and one third averages 4,000 feet above — and Mt. Everest is 29,070 feet above sea-level.) The pressure on earth from enough air to hold that much water vapor would crush every living animal on earth (as well as most plants) before the rains even began. Then to load it with over four miles of water? And how did Noah limit the ark to only two fleas and two tape-worms, and have cages for several thousand insects, and over 3,000 varieties of worms, etc.? But we have learned the Tigris-Euphrates Valley flooded often — back when the Israelites thought the earth was flat. It is extremely difficult for us to rid ourselves of superstitions — of believing in magic — again because of our greed and fear. But if your belief helps you make this world a better place for everyone, inspiring you to love all others, and prevents you from developing “holier than thou” divisive attitudes, then you should continue your beliefs. Ancient writings were not copy-righted. There were no plagiarism laws. Writings could be, and were, changed, altered, modified, edited and re-edited dozens of times in the ancient world and no one was held liable. Even likely writings of Jesus in a time when only 5 percent of the people were literate were likely lost or destroyed because they didn’t fit with the thinking of the times. But Jesus remains my inspiration not because he promised me an eternity in paradise, but because he taught me that the highest order of human behavior is seeking the truth and learning to be kind and loving toward everyone. I will joyfully celebrate his birth at Christmas time. E. Gene Gorrell Fremont

Tools help shoppers to avoid, fight scams We are at the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, one of the most profitable times of the year for the retail industry. As you think about gifts, I urge you to use caution, particularly if you tend to buy things online, with mail orders or over the phone. Congressional statistics show that people in the U.S. lose an estimated $4 billion in mail scams and $40 billion in telemarketing fraud each year. Data compiled from the complaints shows that about 53 percent of unwanted calls are about REP. credit card interest rate reduction scams and 13 percent deal with sweepstakes or prize-related scams. It may sound cliché but if the deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. ID theft is another serious issue to watch out for, and is one that could seriously damage your credit score and financial situation. Here are some tips from the FBI and Senior Living to help keep you safe this holiday season. 1. Don’t buy from an unfamiliar company. 2. Always ask for and wait until you receive written material about any offer or charity. 3. Obtain a salesperson’s name, business identity, telephone number, street address,

mailing address and business license number before you transact business. 4. Always take your time in making a decision. 5. Find out what actions the website/company takes if a problem occurs and consider insuring the transaction and shipment. 6. Examine the feedback on the seller. 7. Determine what method of payment the seller is asking from you. DAVID 8. If possible, purchase items online using your credit card OBER because you can often dispute the charges if something goes wrong. 9. If you have information about a fraud, report it to state, local or federal law enforcement agencies. Many senior scam perpetrators make calls or send emails on behalf of a financial institution. For example, they may say there’s a problem with your bank or credit card account and ask you to verify the account numbers. If you get one of these calls, ask for a name and phone number you can call back, and make that call to ensure you are dealing with a legitimate company. If you cannot verify that the request is legitimate, do not provide the information. The Indiana Attorney General’s website has many important resources, such as the ID Theft Prevention Toolkit, which outlines

People in the U.S. lose an estimated $4 billion in mail scams and $40 billion in telemarketing fraud each year … About 53 percent of unwanted calls are about credit card interest rate reduction scams and 13 percent deal with sweepstakes or prize scams.

• some necessary steps to reduce the risk of identity theft; it also assists those who have fallen prey to identity theft to correct their records after a scam. More information on the tools and resources available to shield Hoosiers from scams are available at IN.gov/attorneygeneral. Holidays should be about family and traditions, not the stress of dealing with the backlash from ID theft and scammers. Take the time to protect yourself and your loved ones. STATE REP.

Briefs • US law didn’t halt cigarette flow from New York tribes NEW YORK (AP) — When Congress passed a law in 2009 effectively banning mail-order deliveries of cigarettes, it was expected to snuff out entrepreneurs on New York’s Indian reservations who were selling millions of tax-free cartons to consumers in high-tax states. But the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act didn’t stop everybody. Shipping records were obtained by lawyers for New York City as part of a racketeering lawsuit. They show that as of last spring, one group of about 20 website operators on Seneca Nation territory was still delivering 1.7 tons of untaxed cigarettes a week to destinations around the U.S. The city’s suit is part of a wider legal battle involving cigarettes sold on Indian reservations.

Biden will visit DMZ during Asian trip WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is preparing to visit the Demilitarized Zone, the heavily armed border between South Korea and North Korea. The White House is releasing details of Biden’s itinerary for his weeklong trip to Asia aimed at showing the U.S. remains focused on the region. Biden departs Sunday for Japan, China and South Korea. Biden will visit the DMZ Saturday following a ceremony honoring U.S. troops who died during the Korean War, which ended 60 years ago. The border visit will likely highlight the conflict over North Korea’s nuclear program. In Tokyo, Biden will meet with Japan’s prime minister and lawmakers. He’ll meet with China’s president in Beijing and with South Korea’s president in Seoul. Biden will also give a speech in South Korea on U.S. policy in Asia.

Big demonstrations beseige Ukraine KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — A protest by about 300,000 Ukrainians angered by their government’s decision to freeze integration with the West turned violent Sunday, when a group of demonstrators besieged the president’s office and police drove them back with truncheons, tear gas and flash grenades. Dozens of people were injured. The mass rally in central Kiev defied a government ban on protests in the biggest show of anger over President Viktor Yanukovych’s refusal to sign a political and economic agreement with the European Union.

Box Office • ‘Hunger Games’ brings in $75 million over weekend HOLLYWOOD — “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” earned a prodigious $75 million, while 3-D animated musical “Frozen” opened with $67 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Both films bested the previous Thanksgiving record holder, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” which earned $57.5 million in 2001 over a three-day period. “Frozen” is now the biggest Thanksgiving wide release opener ever. Lionsgate’s sequel and Disney’s frosty fete now hold the record for the highest domestic box office grosses for the three-day and five-day holiday weekend, as “Catching Fire” blazed the trail and “Frozen” slid in at No. 2. From Wednesday to Sunday, “Catching Fire” brought in $110.2 million, bringing the domestic total to $297 million. “Frozen” scored $93 million, topping Disney’s previous five-day champ, “Toy Story 2,” which earned $80.1 million in 1999.

New blue ribbon panels stumble on all that red ink WASHINGTON (AP) — Since the end of World War II, more than a dozen high-profile bipartisan panels have been convened to tackle the nation’s thorniest fiscal problems. Seldom have their recommendations spurred congressional action. Their ambitious, high-octane reports and recommendations are mostly gathering dust on government shelves. Right now, congressional negotiators are struggling with a way to head off another looming government shutdown and debt ceiling crisis that could strike early next year. A 29-member bipartisan panel faces a Dec. 13 deadline and daunting odds. History is not on its side. A bipartisan “supercommittee” tasked with finding ways to cut the federal deficit by at least $1.2 trillion over 10 years crashed, burned and Murray expired last November. “We end this process united in our belief that the nation’s fiscal crisis must be addressed and that we cannot leave it for the next generation to solve,” its leaders, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., said in a joint statement of frustration. A 2010-2011 deficit-reduction panel led by former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., and Democrat Erskine Bowles, a former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, produced a comprehensive deficit-cutting plan that was widely praised but mostly ignored, even by President Barack Obama, who created the group. Simpson called the plan

“the only one that irritates everybody” and therefore “the only one that will work.” Proposing a batch of highly detailed government spending cuts and tax increases, the recommendations won many bipartisan plaudits, but little support from either party. It failed, Simpson later suggested, because Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike “all worship the god of re-election.” The Grace Commission was created in 1982 by President Ronald Reagan to go after waste and inefficiency in the federal government. Headed by businessman J. Peter Grace, the commission produced hefty recommendations it claimed would save the government $424 billion over three years. Reagan and Congress largely ignored its report. One of the few special panels generally hailed as a success is the 1981-83 Social Security commission chaired by Republican economist Alan Greenspan, who later served for 19 years as Federal Reserve chairman under four different presidents. His panel is credited widely with rescuing the old-age benefit program from insolvency. It recommended an increase in the Social Security payroll tax, trimming some benefits, especially for younger retirees, and gradually raising the retirement age for full benefits. For once, Congress went along. But it was hardly a smooth ride. The panel quickly deadlocked, with Democrats opposing benefit cuts and Republicans opposing higher Social Security taxes. It came up with its big fix only after the direct, heavy intervention by Reagan and House Speaker Thomas P. O’Neill, D-Mass.

NTSB officials trying to reach Alaska crash site ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Federal investigators on Sunday started documenting the wreckage of a plane crash in remote southwest Alaska that killed four people and injured six Friday night. A break in weather conditions allowed two investigators — from the National Transportation Safety Board and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration — on Sunday to reach the scene where a single-engine aircraft went down near the village of Saint Marys, said Clint Johnson, the chief of the NTSB’s Alaska regional office. “The goal is to document the wreckage at the accident site to the best of their ability, and be able to talk to witnesses,” Johnson said Sunday afternoon. He added that “it’s way too early to draw any conclusions” about what cause the accident. Investigators will be at the site for at least a day, possibly two, collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses, Johnson said. Another NTSB investigator in Anchorage also is hoping to interview survivors of the crash, he said. The Hageland Aviation

Cessna 208 crashed at around 6:30 p.m. Friday four miles from Saint Marys. It left Bethel on a scheduled flight for Mountain Village and eventually Saint Marys but never reached Mountain Village. The airplane would have been flying in freezing rain with a mile of visibility and a 300-foot ceiling, a spokeswoman for the Alaska State Troopers has said. Johnson said the plane was equipped with an advanced electronic locator transmitter that went off on impact and sent a satellite signal with GPS coordinates alerting officials to the accident. At about 7 p.m. Friday, one of the survivors, Melanie Coffee, also made a frantic call for help resuscitating her 5-month-old baby, then walked nearly a mile to lead searchers hampered by cold and fog to the crash site. Saint Marys has about 500 people and is located 470 miles west of Anchorage. Like many Alaska villages, it is off the state road system. People routinely use small aircraft to reach regional hubs where they can catch another plane to complete trips to Anchorage or other cities.

A worker rides a bicycle in front of the reactor building of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, just outside the southern city of Bushehr, Iran. A report by Iran’s official news agency quotes the country’s nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, saying the Islamic Republic needs more nuclear power plants.

Report: Iran now wants more nuclear power plants TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s nuclear chief said Sunday that the Islamic Republic needs more nuclear power plants, the country’s official news agency reported, just after it struck a deal regarding its contested nuclear program with world powers. Ali Akbar Salehi said the additional nuclear power would help the country reduce its carbon emissions and its consumption of oil, IRNA reported. He said Iran should produce 150 tons of nuclear fuel to supply five nuclear power plants. “We should take required action for building power plants for 20,000 megawatts of electricity” in the long term, Salehi said. The comments come

after Iran agreed to freeze part of its nuclear program in return for Western powers easing crippling economic sanctions. The deal requires Iran to cap its uranium enrichment level at 5 percent, far below the 90 percent threshold needed for a warhead. That 5 percent uranium can be used at nuclear power plants. Iran also pledged to “neutralize” its stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium — the highest level acknowledged by Tehran — by either diluting its strength or converting it to fuel for research reactors, which produced isotopes for medical treatments and other civilian use. Iran says its nuclear

program is for peaceful purposes. Western powers fear Iran could use its nuclear program to make atomic weapons. Iran’s only nuclear power plant, near the southern port of Bushehr, produces some 1,000 megawatts of electricity. The plant came online with help from Russia, which will provide fuel for it through 2021. Salehi said Iran is in talks with several countries — including Russia — to build four more nuclear power plants to produce 5,000 megawatts of power in the near future. He said he asked moderate President Hassan Rouhani to include a line of credit in next year’s budget for expanding nuclear power plants.

Ohio lawsuit focuses on safety of gas drilling COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A closely watched lawsuit in Ohio is asking a question that’s burning in cities and towns throughout shale country: Can regulations in states eager for the jobs and tax revenues that come with gas and oil drilling trump local restrictions that communities say protect them from haphazard development? The case was brought by Munroe Falls, an Akron suburb of 5,000. It involves a well that Beck Energy Corp. began to drill — with the state’s permission — on private property in the city in 2011. In the process, the company sidestepped 11 local laws on road use, permitting and drilling, the city contends. The legal disagreement over whether Beck’s permit can pre-empt Munroe Falls’ local regulations reached the Ohio Supreme Court this summer. Both pro- and anti-drilling forces are watching the case because it’s further along in the courts than similar lawsuits in other states and the outcome could encourage or deter the implementation

elsewhere of local laws to limit drilling. The case has implications for the spread of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial method of injecting sand, water and chemicals to free the gas from shale rock deep underground. The case in Munroe Falls centers on a traditionally drilled well, but the centralized oil and gas regulation that’s in question regulates both kinds. In the rich shale oil states of New York, where fracking is not yet legal and many communities have instituted pre-emptive bans, and Pennsylvania, where fracking is widespread, similar cases have been decided in favor of shared regulation, with municipalities overseeing such things as land use and aesthetics and the state overseeing safety and construction. The lawsuit cites Texas, California, Oklahoma and Colorado as states that use a shared system. “If this goes the way that I hope and pray it would go, it would restore some home rule to municipalities that has been taken away by the

state,” said Munroe Falls Mayor Frank Larson. “It would uphold our right to be able to zone certain areas and exclude certain uses and to allow those uses in other areas.” The 2004 state law under which Beck’s state permit was issued consolidated oil and gas production operations under the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The company said in court filings that the idea was “to end the confusion, inefficiency and delays under the earlier patchwork of local ordinances, and to ensure that Ohio’s oil and gas resources are developed on a uniform statewide basis.” Munroe Falls and its allies in the suit — including cities, villages, environmental groups and a host of local businesses — argue the law empowered the state to regulate drilling methods but gave it no authority to protect the interests of local communities. That “constitutional prerogative,” cities argue, has lain with Ohio’s local governments for nearly a century.

Friends help parents cope with their loss DEAR ABBY: My little girl was born with a heart defect. She made it through the first heart surgery, but passed away a week later right in front of me while the doctors and nurses tried to save her. As the date of her death gets closer, I am becoming more and more depressed. How can I remember her and share my memories in a good way when all I want to do is stay in bed and cry? — HEARTBROKEN MOMMY IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR MOMMY: I am so sorry for your loss. A way to remember your little girl and share those memories would be to contact a group called The Compassionate Friends. It’s a national self-help support organization for families grieving the death of a child and was started to help families cope with the loss of children of any age and from any cause.

Relieve postnasal drip with treatments each side of your nose while you’re bending over the sink or standing in the shower. The solution should flow into one nostril and out the other. You may rinse your sinuses as needed, depending on your symptoms. Also try filling a basin with hot water ASK and inhaling DOCTOR K. the air just above the surface. And a humidiDr. Anthony use fier at night. Nasal Komaroff irrigation is a little more complicated. But it is also very effective in clearing the thick mucus: (1) Mix 1 teaspoon of pure salt (no additives) in 8 ounces of warm (not hot) water.

(2) Draw the saltwater mixture into a syringe. (You can get one at your local drugstore. One type has a bulb shape. The other looks like something you’d see in a doctor’s office. Neither one has a needle.) (3) Insert the tip of the syringe in one nostril. Lean over the sink. Push gently. The solution may drain from either nostril or from your mouth. Repeat two or three times per day. Decongestant sprays may help. They shrink swollen membranes in your nose and in the passages from your nose to your sinuses. That allows the discharge to drain out of the sinuses and nose. But limit your use of decongestants to three to four days; using them too often can cause a reaction that makes membranes get swollen again, making postnasal drip worse. Decongestant pills such as pseudoephedrine may

DEAR DOCTOR K: The worst part of a cold for me is the postnasal drip that lasts for weeks. Can I do anything to stop it? DEAR READER: I’m also a frequent sufferer from postnasal drip, so I’m pleased to say there are treatments that can help. Postnasal drip is discharge from your nose and sinuses that drips down the back of your throat. If it were coming out through your nostrils, you’d call it a “runny nose.” Following colds, the discharge typically is thin and white. If you get a sinus infection, the discharge can be thick and colored yellow, brown or green. One of the first things to try is a saline spray. Saline washes remove mucus, irritants and allergens from your nose and moisturize your nasal passages. Many saline sprays are available over-the-counter. To use these products, gently squirt the saline solution into

work. But in some people, decongestants can dry out the nasal passages, making mucus thicker — just what you want to avoid. Each person responds differently to these treatments. You will need to figure out what works best for you. The human anatomy contains many wonders. The gut miraculously breaks food down into the tiniest pieces so that we can digest nutrients. The cells in the kidney and liver eliminate dangerous toxins from our body. The heart and circulation provide energy to every cell in our body, every minute of our waking and sleeping life. Then there are the sinuses. Do they serve any useful purpose? Or were we given them just to keep us humble? DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.
