GOOD MORNING Southern states gird for voter law fight AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Stricter voter identification laws, redrawn political maps fortifying Republican majorities, reducing early voting: States with GOP strongholds intensified these efforts under President Barack Obama and proclaimed victory at the Supreme Court. Now the Obama administration is signaling plans to drag some of these mostly Southern states with histories of minority discrimination into rematches after the high court knocked down a major piece of the Voting Rights Act. First up is Texas, which rushed to enact a tough voter ID law and new redistricting maps after the justices’ 5-4 ruling last month. North Carolina is considered to be another possible target of the administration, and officials in Alabama are also digging their heels in for another possible round with the Justice Department. Other states also are watching closely.

Auto club to form local chapter AUBURN — A local chapter of the Antique Automobile Club of America will begin next week in Auburn. A meeting to form the chapter is scheduled for Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the National Auto & Truck Museum in Auburn. The new chapter will elect officers and make a formal application to the AACA board of directors. “DeKalb County is the ‘Hub of Transportation,’ and Auburn hosts several world famous museums, so it only makes sense to have a local chapter located here,” said Don Grogg, executive director of the National Auto & Truck Museum. The museum will be the site for future meetings of the new chapter. AACA is the nation’s oldest and largest automotive historical society, founded in Philadelphia in 1935. It has grown to more than 60,000 members from all parts of the world, Grogg said.

Competitive and noncompetitive meets and events of the AACA take place throughout the nation, including an event conducted in May at Auburn Auction Park. Vehicles must be at least 25 years old and their owners must be members to participate in events. Membership includes unlimited free admission to the AACA Museum in Hershey, Pa., which houses vehicles in a 71,000-square-foot space. AACA has approximately 400 regions and chapters in the United States and Canada. The closest chapter to Auburn is more than 65 miles away, Grogg said. Grogg said Tuesday’s meeting is open to people who are members of AACA or wish to join. Forms will be available. First-year dues are $18. Grogg said he expects the meeting to last approximately one hour.

AUBURN — In the front parlor of John Bry’s Cedar Street home, refinished wood floors gleam and antique furniture is set against walls decorated with elegant vintage wallpaper. In stark contrast, paint peels from the ceiling of an upstairs bathroom while plastic grocery bags are used to patch a hole in the bedroom roof. “The house has reached the 50-60 percent complete mark,” Bry said. “I’m very, very pleased. It doesn’t quite seem real yet.” Bry, who is the DeKalb County historian, acquired the historic home at 108 N. Cedar St. in 2010 and began renovations in 2011. The house was built in 1849, and its first owner was John Miller, an early settler from Wilmington Township. “Some people believe it’s the oldest (house in Auburn), but it’s not,” Bry said. “It’s one of the oldest.” Bry will host an open house Aug. 3 from noon to 5 p.m. “So many people are curious about the renovation process, I just thought, ‘Why not just open the house so people can see for themselves?’” Bry said. “Things on the interior have changed quite a bit since it was on the (Lions Club) Christmas tour last November. Everyone is welcome to check out the progress and learn about the history of the house.” Relating the home’s history, Bry said the Millers sold the house in the 1860s to Chester and Julia Hodge. In turn, they sold it to the Baldock family, who operated the Auburn House Hotel at the site where the Main Street YMCA now sits. Later the house was sold to

widow invited her two sisters to move in with her. The home remained in the family until 2010. John Hood, the grandson of one of Baxter’s widow’s sisters, was the last person to live in the house before Bry. Bry said he had admired the house since he was a child, and he jumped at the opportunity to own it. “I wanted to restore it,” Bry said. “I didn’t want to see the house destroyed.” The house was in a serious

CLEVELAND (AP) — A man accused of imprisoning three women in his home and subjecting them to rapes and beatings for a decade avoided the death penalty Friday, pleading guilty in a deal that will keep him in prison for life. “The captor is now the captive,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said of 53-year-old Ariel Castro. The women’s escape from Castro’s home two months ago at first brought joy to the city where they had become household names after years of searches, publicity and vigils, then despair at revelations of their treatment. Their rescue brought shocking allegations that Castro fathered a child with one of the women, induced five miscarriages in another by starving and punching her, and assaulted one with a vacuum cord around her neck when she tried to escape. Castro told the judge he was addicted to pornography, had a “sexual problem” and had been a sexual abuse victim himself long ago. He pleaded guilty to 937 counts in the deal, which sends him to prison for life without parole, plus 1,000 years. Prosecutors agreed to take a possible death penalty charge off the table. Castro, wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and a bushy beard, was far more engaged than in previous court appearances when he mostly kept his head down and eyes closed. He answered the judge’s questions in a clear voice, saying he understood that he would never be released from prison and adding that he expected he




Painting the exterior of this historic home at 108 N. Cedar St., Auburn, was a top priority for DeKalb County historian John Bry when he acquired the property in 2010. Now renovations at the home are at the halfway point. Bry will host an open house Aug. 3 to show what has been done and what lies ahead in the project.

The Baxters renovated a barn next to the house, and that became their residence. They kept ownership of the house and used it as a law office, Bry said. In 1916, attorney John Baxter sold the house to a doctor, also named John Baxter. The two were not related, Bry noted. Dr. Baxter died in the house in 1928. After his death, his

Animal shelter needs emergency roof repair BY AARON ORGAN

BUTLER — A ceiling above the dog kennel at the DeKalb County Animal Shelter has burst open, forcing the agency to scramble for help to repair the damage. Shelter manager Anna Feller said a slow leak in the roof of the building at 5221 U.S. 6, west of Butler, saturated the ceiling above a kennel that houses more than 30 dogs, and it burst this week. Feller said a section of the

ceiling is in danger of falling in on the kennel. A contractor visited the shelter Thursday at no cost and cut away the compromised ceiling, Feller said. The contractor applied plastic around the hole as a stop-gap measure before he can make complete repairs, she said. A roofer is scheduled to come to the building to address the leak, Feller said. “It could be bad,” Feller said. “The contractor said that the next

big rain, the ceiling might have very well come down on our dogs. The dogs are safe and the staff is safe for right now, but we’ve just got to get it fixed.” Feller said the ceiling had only a slight crack before it opened this week. She said the building has had shingles fall from the roof repeatedly. Feller said the shelter does not have the money to pay for major building repairs. It will lean on donations and volunteer help to mend the issue, she said.

“If you don’t have it, you can’t spend it,” Feller said. “We do what we can. There’s no extra money at the shelter. We run on a lot of donations and contributions. It’s hard to say what’s in the budget. We have to fix what we have to fix, but it’s just hard. It’s hard to come up with the money.” To donate to the shelter, visit the shelter’s website at or send checks to DeKalb Humane Society, 5221 U.S. 6, Butler, IN 46721.

Family of burned woman frustrated ANDERSON (AP) — Family members of a severely burned central Indiana woman say they’re frustrated with the police investigation into what they believe was an attack inside her home. Chad Lyons said his 37-year-old wife Melanie has been on life support at the Wishard Memorial Hospital burn unit in Indianapolis with burns over 90 percent of her body from the July 10 fire at their Anderson home. He told The Herald-Bulletin she has less than a 10 percent chance of survival. Police said the mother of five was sleeping on a living room couch when she started screaming for help about 1 a.m. and her husband rushed downstairs to find her on fire. Lyons said he’s disappointed with what police have done.

“I haven’t really heard anything. They interviewed me, but I haven’t been told anything about the investigation,� Lyons said. “One way or another, I’d like some answers.� Anderson police detective Joel Sandefur said investigators were still examining whether the fire was an accident or foul play. “There are a lot of anomalies to this whole investigation,� Sandefur said. “Those are a few of the things we’re trying to piece through. And on top of it all, we can’t talk to Melanie right now. We’re waiting to see if that’s even going to be possible.� Sonya Troub, Melanie Lyons’ mother, said she suspects somebody entered the home through the patio door, threw an accelerant on Melanie and set her on fire.

Nancy and Mike McBride show off their antique wooden 1952-model Criss Craft that is a holiday model named Nancy II. The couple spent two years refinishing

the boat that will be on display at an antique boat and car show they helped organize for Saturday at Jimmerson Creek.

Antique boat show is today BY EMILY ERNSBERGER

LAKE JAMES — An antique boat and car show will take place today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Approximately 60 boats, outboard motors and cars will be parked and on display at the old Boat House Marina, located next to the former Bledsoe’s Beach, on Jimmerson Creek, at the Four Corners area of Lake James and Jimmerson Lake. “Most of the boats are from the 1940s to the 1980s,� said Mike McBride, who organized the event. McBride, co-president

of the Indiana Chapter of the Antique Classic Boat Society, will display his 1952 Chris Craft Holiday and a 1959 Owens Cabin Cruiser, which he shares with Terry Archbold, owner of Drydock Marine. The Owens Cabin Cruiser “has never been off Lake James,� said McBride, and it recently has been restored. It has not been out, however, in 19 years. McBride and the Antique Classic Boat Society chapter held an antique boat show at Lake Wawasee last month. “We try to do a couple shows a year,� said McBride.

Those interested in displaying their car or boat at the event can register today. There is a $15 fee for boats and no cost for cars. Those displaying boats receive a free T-shirt upon registration. Door prizes will be available. Local artists and food vendors will be a part of this year’s boat and car show. It is a free event open to the public. For more information about the show, call Mike McBride at 833-1853. For more information on the Antique Classic Boat Society, visit

Motor city is stalled

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry — the same TV commentator who said Americans need to stop raising kids as if they belong to individual families — had an extraordinary explanation for why the city of Detroit sought to declare bankruptcy last week: not enough government. “This is what it looks like when government is small enough to drown in your bathtub, and it is not a pretty picture.” She says budget-cutting Republicans threaten to transform all of the U.S. into Detroit. JOHN What? Detroit has been a “model city” for big-govSTOSSEL ernment! All Detroit’s mayors since 1962 were Democrats who were eager to micromanage. And spend. Detroit has the only utility tax in Michigan, and its income tax is the third-highest of any big city in America (only Philadelphia and Louisville take more, and they aren’t doing great, either). Detroit’s automakers got billions in federal bailouts. The Detroit News revealed that Detroit in 2011 had around twice as many municipal employees per capita as cities with comparable populations. The city water and sewer department employed a “horseshoer” even though it keeps no horses. This is “small enough government”? Harris-Perry must have one heck of a bathtub. Politicians think they know best, but they can’t alter the laws of economics. They can’t make mismanaged industries, constant government meddling, welfare and bureaucratic labor union rules (Detroit has 47 unions) into a formula for success. County Judge Rosemarie Aquilina wants to stop the bankruptcy process on the grounds that state law forbids Detroit to cut government services. But how will Detroit pay for the services? Unsustainable public-sector pensions, a bloated workforce — it’s all supposed to continue somehow. Politicians on Detroit’s city council aren’t even willing to sell off vacant lots that the city owns, or even a portion of the billions of dollars in art in its government-subsidized museum (including the original “Howdy Doody” puppet). On my TV show, I confronted the council’s second in command about his refusal to let Detroit sell land. He says he voted against it “because the developer wants to grow trees. We don’t need any more new trees in our city.” The politicians micromanaged themselves into bankruptcy, and they want to keep digging. A member of the British Parliament writes that Detroit is like the fictional city of Starnesville in Ayn Rand’s 1957 novel “Atlas Shrugged” — a car-manufacturing city that became a ghost town after experimenting with socialism. In the novel, Starnesville’s demise is the first sign that the entire society is approaching collapse. Detroit is already there. 911 calls sometimes go unanswered. Two-thirds of the population left town. As usual, the politicians want to try more of the same. They constantly come up with plans, but the plans are always big, simple-minded ones that run roughshod over the thousands of little plans made by ordinary citizens. Politicians want new stadiums, new transportation schemes, housing projects. Andrew Rodney, a documentary filmmaker from Detroit, says many bad, big-government ideas that have plagued the U.S. were tried out first in Detroit. “It’s the first city to experience a lot of the planning that went into a lot of cities.” Home loan subsidies, public housing, stadium subsidies, a $350 million project called “Renaissance Center” (the city ended up selling it for just $50 million), an automated People Mover system that not many people feel moved to use (it moves people in only one direction), endless favors to unions — if a government idea has failed anywhere in America, there’s a good chance it failed in Detroit first. And if you criticized them for it, politicians like former Mayor Coleman Young called you a racist. “To attack Detroit is to attack black,” Young said. That tends to shut critics up. But the laws of economics apply to us all. Insulated from serious criticism, insulated from economic reality, Detroit thought somehow it’d muddle through — until now. There is a big lesson, if people elsewhere are willing to learn before it’s too late.

Islanders teach their children value of work Even though the village of Ocracoke is small, there are always plenty of places to seek your fortune or find someone to talk to. The winter population of just under 1,000 residents explodes in the summer as tourists ferry over for a week or a day taking photos, having lunch down by the harbor or listening to historical talks. There are wonderful organized areas to hear about the history and lore of the island, but the informal chats with shopkeepers are one of my favorites. Rob Temple and Sundae Horn own The Black Schooner nautical gift shop on the harbor. Their shop, like most, is an old salty house that used to be the Byrum Cottage. Two rocking chairs and a porch swing encourage conversations on the porch for tourists and locals. I often walk down to see what Sundae is doing. She is also a writer and organizes Tuesday night Bingo! The store is a family business so you never know who will be minding shop. Sometimes Robb is there at the counter pouring over seafaring charts as he is also the sailing captain of The Windfall II and The Wilma Lee. Sometimes the kids are there instead. Their oldest, Emmett, is theater major and he is usually consumed with reading Shakespeare while he sits behind the counter. But today I am meeting up with Susan Paul who owns and operates, with her husband James, The Fudge Shop and The Ice Cream Shop on this square. As the usual fare I carry my notebook and my camera down to the harbor. I am early and it is a great time to enjoy the beauty of this morning. Someone is making coffee and the scent of it mingles with the salt from the sea. There are a few early morning joggers and a few dog walkers as well.

Susan arrives on her golf cart, which has now become the most popular mode of transportation on the island. She is smiling. Susan is always smiling and it is contagious. We stand outside in the early morning sun just chatting about the day. This is her second trip to the shop today; she was here earlier to meet the ice cream delivery truck. Susan takes out her keys and unlocks the store. It was built in 1938 and was the original Ocracoke Power and Light Co. It is cool inside and everything LOU ANN is shiny clean. I comment HOMAN- on the size of the working space and ask if there is SAYLOR another room somewhere. Susan laughs, “This is the whole thing,” she says, “148 square feet.” There is not even room to turn around! My Mad Mag Studio is bigger than her store, almost! She shows me where the ice cream and fudge are stored. She turns to her pride and joy … her hot water kettle for making fudge. She comes in early most mornings to make fudge while the island is cool and quiet. I ask her how she learned to make fudge. “Trial and error,” she says as she laughs. It is definitely efficient! James put in the two new sliding windows … one for ordering and one for pick up. Cozy and practical. We go back outside and sit on the bench. Susan begins to tell me her own story. She moved to Ocracoke from New Bern when she was 17. She just wanted a summer job and an adventure. She didn’t expect to fall in love, but she did. She and James were married and

As with most folks on Ocracoke they have had many jobs to support their family. Their two sons have learned the value of the dollar by helping out.

• have never left. As with most folks on Ocracoke they have had many jobs to support their family. Their two sons have learned the value of the dollar by helping out. Arabella, who is only 4, often goes to work with Susan. I ask her about the store hours. “Well, it always depends on the weather and the crowds. We usually open at 10 and stay open late into the evening!” I look up at the red and white awnings, another addition by James. She tells me that when she first moved here she sat out on this porch eating ice cream! It is obvious that she loves this new adventure. As much as we are enjoying our chat, she needs to go back home to finish chores so she can get back to open the store. We wave farewell, and she is gone. I am proud to know these two families teaching their children the value of work on this island out to sea. LOU ANN HOMAN-SAYLOR lives in Angola at the White Picket Gardens where you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, teacher, writer, actress and a collector of front porch stories.

The $800 apple or a rare white tiger? Years ago I started planting fruit trees in the back yard. I planted five different kinds of apple trees, a cherry and a pear. The next year, I planted five different kinds of apple trees, a cherry and a pear because the deer had eaten the first batch down to the nubs. I bought wire fencing and made cages around each new tree. The following year, I planted five different kinds of apple trees, a cherry and a pear because the deer just leaned over the fences and ate the saplings. The next year, I used taller, stronger wire fence cages. It kept the deer out, but not the rabbits, who nibbled the bark off the bottom of the trees and killed them. The next batch of trees I fenced in with deer- and rabbit-proof fencing. The tent caterpillars arrived in June and spent the next month eating every leaf. The next batch caught some kind of rust or mold and all the leaves fell off. The next batch got backed over by the guy who delivered the shingles for our new garage roof. One year they all just died, and no one could figure out why. Was it too wet in June or too dry in July? I’ve been at this for 10 years now. I refuse to give up. Why should farmers have all the fun? And my perseverance has paid off. This year I will get my first homegrown apples. Granny Smiths. Two of them. They are still on the tree and nothing has eaten

them yet, but there’s only a month and a half to go before I have to hire a picking crew. Right now they are about the size of golf balls. When you add it all up — the fencing, the root stock, the time I put in — it will probably only cost me about $800 per apple. But next year I might get four more apples, dropping my per-apple cost down to $266. A significant savings. Of course, until my trees start supplying all the apples I need, I still have to buy at the store. If I add in JIM them that cost, I may never break MULLEN even. You may think that the human vs. deer standoff has been going on forever, and that I should just deal with it. But while doing some historical research in some hundred-year-old newspapers, I spotted a news story from 1913: “On Tuesday last, John O’Connor, who has a farm on Ogden Hill Road, saw a deer cross the road going north. He tried to follow it but it soon disappeared.” Not a very exciting story except for the fact that it means a hundred years ago, deer were so rare around here that spotting one was a news story.

The main problem with shrub-eating, crop-eating, flower-eating, sapling-eating, tick taxi suburban deer is that they are cute. If they looked like 250-pound giant locusts, something tells me that shooting them would be made mandatory. But no, they look like a Disney cartoon and get all the privileges that come with being cute. People feed them. People “ooh” and “ahh” over them. They get into nightclubs for free and never have to pay for a drink. Oh, wait, that’s not deer, that’s good-looking young women. Still, you get my drift. Which is why, one morning last week, there were 23 deer grazing on my front lawn. It looked as if we were raising them. Next to the deer was a flock of Canadian geese that never seem to leave. When did geese stop flying south in the winter and north in the summer? They just live in the same place all the time now. My lawn. A car stopped in front of our house and a guy stuck his iPad out the window and videoed the wildlife. You’d have thought he was filming a rare white tiger for “Wild Kingdom.” I wish he was … a nice cute tiger would solve so many of my lawn care problems.

Egypt accuses ousted president in jailbreak CAIRO (AP) — Prosecutors opened an investigation of ousted President Mohammed Morsi on charges including murder and conspiracy with the Palestinian militant group Hamas, fueling tensions amid a showdown in the streets between tens of thousands of backers of the military and supporters calling for the Islamist leader’s reinstatement. Clashes between Morsi supporters and opponents erupted outside a major mosque in the coastal city of Alexandria, with the two sides throwing stones and firing birdshot at each other. Police and army forces lobbed tear gas and deployed soldiers but were unable to break up the fighting, which killed two people and injured 24. Minor scuffles erupted in a Cairo neighborhood and in the Nile Delta city of Damietta with at least 18

injured, according to health officials. The announcement of the case against Morsi, which is likely to pave the way to a formal indictment, was the first word on his legal status since the military deposed him on July 3. For more than three weeks, the Islamist leader has been held by the military in a secret location, incommunicado. Supporters of Morsi denied the charges against him, calling them politically motivated but vowed to keep their protests peaceful. On Friday, a spokesman for Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood said the move to prosecute Morsi showed “the complete bankruptcy of the leaders of the bloody coup.” Egyptians “reject the return of the dictatorial police state and all the repression, tyranny and theft it entails,” Ahmed Aref said in a statement.

Pope shows off spiritual side Pontiff presides over solemn rite at Rio beach RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Pope Francis presided over one of the most solemn rites of the Catholic Church on Friday, a procession re-enacting Christ’s crucifixion in the improbable location of Rio’s hedonistic Copacabana beach, as he headed into the home stretch of his first international trip for World Youth Day. The evening procession highlighted Francis’ deep spiritual side a day after he showed off his rebel streak by calling on young Catholics to shake things up in their parishes and make a “mess” by going out to the streets to spread their faith. Francis took a long drive in his open car along Rio’s oceanfront to reach the stage, kissing babies brought to him and waving to the shrieking crowds held behind fences and soldiers in camouflage. He then watched on in prayer as young people began the procession, which recounts the final hours of Christ’s life as he is condemned to death and crucified. The procession is one of the mainstay events of World Youth Day, designed to remind young Catholics about the root of their faith that Christ died to forgive their sins. Francis drove

He told us that young people have the responsibility of keeping the church alive and spreading the word of Christ.” Later, he met privately

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The news release intended to project an air of normalcy: “Forward with City Business!” exclaimed the announcement Mayor Bob Filner put out last week with some upbeat photos showing the mayor reviewing plans for a new library, smiling at a gay pride parade and celebrating at an office birthday party. But “normal” San Diego is not these days — not with

COLUMBUS (AP) — An 81-year-old pilot whose home-built plane crashed into a central Indiana house this week was on a test flight to ensure recent repairs had resolved some mechanical issues, a friend says. The plane piloted by Gerald Clayton slammed into a home in Columbus on Thursday, leaving Clayton and passenger Dennis King, 60, with burns and other injuries. A woman who was inside the house escaped

talk of unwanted advances, groping and headlocks, and comparisons of Filner to Anthony Weiner, the ex-congressman who is resisting calls to quit New York’s mayoral race after revelations about new salacious online exchanges. For the last two weeks, Filner, 70, has been mired in his own scandal over far more serious allegations from seven women that he sexually harassed them. The lurid claims

Clayton had built the two-seat Glastar GS-1 plane from a kit sold by Glasair Aviation of Arlington, Wash. Friend Tom Vickers told WISH-TV in Indianapolis the two men spoke about the plane several times and

with a few juvenile detainees, a priority of his ever since his days as archbishop of Buenos Aires and an expression of his belief that the church must reach out to the most marginalized and forgotten of society. Even now as pope, he calls a group of youths in a Buenos Aires detention center every two weeks just to keep in touch, and one of his most memorable gestures as pope was his Holy Thursday Mass at a juvenile detention center in Rome where he washed the

feet of young offenders. On Friday, the young offenders presented Francis with a large homemade rosary made out of Styrofoam balls, each one bearing the names of the eight street children gunned down by police death squads in 1993 as they slept outside Rio’s Candelaria church — a notorious massacre that underscored the unequal treatment that outcasts often receive in Brazil. On the cross were the words “Candelaria Never Again” in Portuguese.

have become the talk of the town — plunging California’s second-largest city into political turmoil amid demands for its first Democratic leader in decades to resign. “I can’t go anywhere without it coming up — the Laundromat, the grocery store, a friend’s party, a restaurant,” said Todd Gloria, a Democrat who, as City Council president, would become interim mayor if Filner resigns. “It

comes up everywhere I go, and no one is supportive of the mayor.” On Thursday, four more women publicly identified themselves on San Diego’s KPBS as targets of Filner’s unwanted sexual advances — bringing to seven the number of accusers who have come forward this week. They include a retired Navy rear admiral, a dean at San Diego State University and the head of the city’s Ports Tenants Association.

that Clayton had planned Thursday’s flight to test whether repairs had fixed some mechanical problems. “Jerry was going to fly it before he put it up for sale,” Vickers said. Vickers said Clayton had problems with the plane in 2011 and had to find an Federal Aviation Administration-certified mechanic to repair it. He said Clayton wanted to get the test flight in before his certification expired at the end of the month. “Gerald was very meticulous toward the plane and the procedures, and with everything he did,” Vickers said. FAA investigators

have interviewed at least 10 witnesses but had not spoken with Clayton or King as of Friday morning, Columbus Police Lt. Matt Myers told The Republic. The crash occurred about a mile from the Columbus airport and near Clayton’s home, which is a third of a mile from the site. Larry Ruble, who lives across from the scene, praised Clayton for limiting the damage. Only one house had significant damage. “I think it’s awesome that Gerald somehow only hit the corner of that house, because if you look at this neighborhood he could have plowed into several people,” Ruble said.

Police Blotter • Butler crash leaves two drivers injured BUTLER — A Garrett man and an Edgerton, Ohio, man were taken to hospitals following a two-vehicle crash south of Butler just before 6 a.m. Thursday, Butler Police said. Jason Andrew Kaufman, 21, of the 700 block of South Cowen Street, Garrett, was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center, Fort Wayne, for treatment of a blunt-force trauma injury, according to a police report. Mathew R. Dietsch, 35, of the 200 block of Clarksville Road, Edgerton, was taken to DeKalb Health hospital at Auburn after suffering cuts to his forehead and for knee and back pain, police said. Kaufman was driving his 1994 Jeep east on R.E. Jones Road (C.R. 30), east of S.R. 1. He told police the power steering failed on his vehicle, causing him to drift across the roadway in front of Dietsch, who was driving west in a 1998 Dodge Dakota. A witness told police he heard brakes squealing and saw the Kaufman vehicle cross in front of the Dietsch vehicle.

Driver ejected in S.R. 3 crash LAOTTO — A Fort Wayne man was ejected from his vehicle in a collision Thursday at 5:14 p.m. on S.R. 3, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department said. Robert Connet, 52, sustained injuries including internal bleeding, fractured ribs and multiple lacerations, a news release said. Police said Nichole Stoddard, 20, of LaOtto, was driving a 1998 Dodge Dakota eastbound on C.R. 62. She crossed the southbound lanes of S.R. 3

and stopped in the median. She did not see Connet’s 2002 Chevy Silverado traveling north and began to cross the northbound lanes, striking Connet’s truck in the driver’s side. Connet’s pickup was forced off the road and rolled over, ejecting Connet before it came to rest on its driver’s side in the ditch, police said. Police estimated damage of $5,000 for Stoddard’s truck and $8,000 for Connet’s. Parkview Samaritan flight service, LaOtto Fire Rescue, DeKalb EMS, The Noble County Sheriff’s Department and Indiana State Police assisted the sheriff’s department.

Woman breaks leg in moped collision BUTLER — A Butler woman suffered a broken leg in a truck-moped collision at 4:40 p.m. Thursday, Butler Police said. Laura E. Reza, 38, of the 100 block of South Broadway, suffered a lower leg fracture in the crash at the intersection of Main Street (U.S. 6) and John Street, police said. Reza was driving her moped east on U.S. 6 when she ran into the back of a stopped 2004 Ford F-350 pickup, driven by Richard Kaiser, 49, of the 8000 block of U.S. 6, Butler, according to a police report. Reza was ejected from her moped. She was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center, Fort Wayne, for treatment of her injuries, police said. A witness told police Reza didn’t appear to slow down prior to the collision, according to a police report. Police estimated total damage between $2,501$5,000.

Three natural gas companies fined INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission has issued $180,000 in fines against three of the state’s largest natural gas companies for safety violations involving underground pipelines. The commission said Thursday the fines stemmed from Northern Indiana Public Service Co., Vectren and Citizens Gas not following procedures or keeping accurate pipeline records, which resulted in pipeline locations either being misidentified or not found as required under the state’s “Call Before You Dig” laws. Commission officials started the safety review after the 2010 gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno, Calif., that destroyed 38 houses and killed eight people.

Man gets 110 years in double murder INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis man who pleaded guilty to his role in the shooting deaths of a man and his 7-year-old niece has been sentenced to 110 years in prison. Twenty-six-year-old Jeremy Priel was sentenced

Friday in the December 2011 slayings of Kyleigh Crane and her 21-year-old uncle, Jeremy Crane, who were found shot to death in a home on Indianapolis’ far east side. Priel had pleaded guilty to two counts of murder in their killings. His 24-year-old co-defendant, Michael Bell, has also pleaded guilty to two counts of murder. He’s expected to be sentenced Aug. 9 to 100 years in prison. The victims’ family considered Bell a close friend and Kyleigh called him “Uncle Mike.” The victims were slain during a robbery that authorities say netted the men about $40.

they’re facing layoffs as the district continues dealing with big enrollment drops. The northwestern Indiana district notified 95 teachers of layoffs, which will drop its teaching staff to about 570. District spokeswoman Charmella Greer tells the Post-Tribune that 32 other employees also are having their jobs cut. The staff reductions follow continued enrollment declines with several charter schools opening in the area and families moving from the troubled city. The Gary schools had about 8,500 students last school year, down from more than 16,000 seven years earlier.

State Police probe rape claim at jail

GARY (AP) — About one-seventh of the teachers in the Gary Community Schools have been told

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana State Police detectives are investigating after a male inmate at the

Marion County Jail was found having sex with a female inmate, our news partner, NewsChannel 15, reports. Administrators said the male inmate was “mistakenly” put in an all-female cell by a guard around 5 p.m. Wednesday. When deputies returned to the cell, they found the male engaged in “sexual activity” with a female inmate. The male inmate is being held on auto theft and receiving stolen property charges, and the female inmate on prostitution and public indecency charges, a sheriff’s office spokesperson said. The male inmate told guards that the sex was consensual. The female inmate denies that and told guards she was raped. She was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital for evaluation and treatment.

state of disrepair when Bry took possession. “Nothing had really been done in years,” Bry said. Plaster had fallen from walls, and areas of ceiling were missing. The kitchen consisted only of a sink and one bank of cabinets, and the rear wall of the house was leaning and cracked. Squirrels made their way through holes in the siding, and tuck pointing work was needed at the home’s foundation. “It needed about everything,” Bry said.


Bry was undaunted by the task that was ahead. He had worked on numerous historic renovation and restoration projects professionally as well as on personal projects involving renovations of his prior homes. Bry did not move into the Cedar Street house for a year. His first goal was to paint the exterior and then start work on the plumbing so at least one bathroom was functioning. Then he wanted to renovate a room that would serve as his office. “After a year I was to that

point,” Bry said. Renovations also have taken place in the parlor, living room, dining room and kitchen. Bry said he has used local vendors and work crews, as well as his parents and friends, to help him with the renovation. “I’ve heard from a lot of people who say, ‘I’m so glad it was saved,’” Bry said. “It’s the community’s house, the community’s landmark. It was on the brink of being lost. It was a real challenge, too, just to convince people it could be done. It feels like home.”

street with her two children. She said she had no idea anything was wrong in the house until the women were rescued. “So I just can’t wait until they tear the house down so everything can be over,” she said. Castro’s uncle, Julio Castro, who has run a nearby corner store for 44 years, said the ordeal will be with the family the rest of their lives. “He’s getting what he deserves,” Castro, 77, said. “Nobody has the right to incarcerate you for 10 years.” Another neighbor on the street where many residents are also from Puerto Rico, said Castro had seemed to be a good neighbor before the women escaped. “We never, the neighborhood, realized that he had those gals there,” Aurora Marti, 75, said in Spanish. “He would come out, greeted me, we would talk for a bit here or in front of the door, and that’s it.”

On the day the child was born, Christmas 2006, Castro raped one of the other women, who had helped deliver the baby. Berry told authorities that she, her child and the other women never saw a doctor during their captivity. Knight, now 32, said her five pregnancies ended after Castro starved and repeatedly punched her. The women escaped Castro’s house May 6 when one of them kicked out part of a door and called to neighbors for help. Castro was arrested within hours and has remained behind bars. Residents of the street where Castro’s boarded up house is surrounded by a tall chain-link security fence welcomed the guilty plea and the news that the house would likely be torn down within a month, possibly for a park. “It’s really horrifying to look at and for my kids to see,” said De’Andrea Harris, who lives directly across the

was “going to get the book thrown at me.” “I knew that when I first spoke to the FBI agent, when I first got arrested,” he said. Castro, who was born in Puerto Rico, said he could read and understand English well but had trouble with comprehension. “My addiction to pornography and my sexual problem has really taken a toll on my mind.” At the end of the 2 1/2-hour hearing, the judge accepted the plea and declared Castro guilty. Sentencing was set for Thursday. The women said in a statement they were relieved by the conviction. “They are satisfied by this resolution to the case, and are looking forward to having these legal proceedings draw to a final close in the near future,” said the statement released on their behalf. Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. Each said they had accepted a ride from Castro, who remained friends with the family of one of the women and even attended vigils over the years marking her disappearance. He was accused of repeatedly raping, beating and restraining the women, sometimes chaining them to a pole in a basement, to a bedroom heater or inside a van. Castro fathered a 6-yearold daughter with Berry, now 27, authorities said.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Juan Pablo Montoya keeps a detailed log of all his rides. Not in the stock car, but on his mountain bike. All of them, every daily 2-hour trek in sunny Miami where the stocky Colombian tries to pedal himself into shape. He’s never too far from his favorite two-wheeled ride — at the track, like Talladega and Charlotte, or any locale when he can find some open space and just go. There’s been so much cycling to keep track of, too: More than 70 rides, and he is closing in on 1,000 miles this year and counting. JPM, NASCAR driver, has morphed into JPM, fitness freak. His quest has even taken him to a pilates studio, where wife Connie convinced him to try a handful of classes. About the only part of his workout routine he won’t detail is exactly how much weight he’s dropped. But it’s clear by looking at his frame that he’s in the best shape of his stock car career. Yes, he was tired of the flab, but not just because he was overweight, but because of what it represented. He’s doing it all with one goal in mind. “I want to (expletive) succeed in this,” he said. “I’m tired of sucking.” Montoya just might turn it around in Indianapolis, because he was back on top of the Brickyard on Friday. Just like he was when he won the 2000 Indianapolis 500. Just like he could have been at least two other times in the

NEW YORK (AP) — Alfonso Soriano took one look around Yankee Stadium and broke into a big, familiar smile. “This is my house, this is my home,” he said. “I’m happy I have the opportunity to come back to New York — 10 years.” The New York Yankees reacquired Soriano in a trade with the Chicago Cubs on Friday, hoping the seven-time All-Star can provide a power boost to a team that desperately needs pop. Soriano immediately went into the starting lineup, batting cleanup and playing left field against Tampa Bay. The Cubs got minor league pitcher Corey Black and will send almost $17.7 million to the Yankees to cover the rest of Soriano’s rich contract. “We’ve obviously been trying


FORT WAYNE — With the first official day of practice by Indiana High School Athletic Association guidelines still a week and a half away, high school football teams gave area media a glimpse of what they will be like this upcoming season Friday morning during the annual Northeast Indiana Preseason Football Media Day held at North Side High School. The KPC Media Group coverage area was represented by coaches and players from East Noble, DeKalb, West Noble and Eastside. Recent Northeast Corner Conference power Churubusco was also in attendance, led by new coach Paul Sade. A lot of excitement surrounds the Knights after a 7-3 season in 2012 during coach Luke Amstutz’s first year at the helm. Their season ended with a wild, see-saw 38-35 home loss to Concord in the first round of Class 4A sectional play. The Minutemen reached the 4A North Semistate game. East Noble only lost a few starters to graduation, and Amstutz will adjust to his seasoned roster while maintaining his up-tempo style of play on both sides of the ball. “Our system is never going to change, but we can do it running a traditional two-back offense,” Amstutz said. “We have most of the talent in the backfield with a good offensive line. We also have a good fullback and blocker we’d like to take advantage of.” Amstutz relates his situation at EN to his first season at Angola in 2008 when he relied heavily on tailback Nick Beard. But the Knights are deeper and more versatile. They have fine receiver in Grey Fox, but they working in a new starting quarterback in junior Harold Wolfe to replace a terrific passer in the graduated Nic Weimer. “Wolfe has been in a lot of varsity games. He’s not the passer Nic was, but he has some speed,” Amstutz said. Wolfe does not feel overwhelmed taking over as the starting quarterback. “The pace is great,” he said. “I had to be patient in taking over. Nic was a great quarterback. Everything I learned, I learned from him. I’m just working on getting my footwork and timing down.” East Noble will be led on offense by senior running backs Brandon Mable and Walker Boyles and senior linemen Reece Hobson and Connor Holcomb. Mable and the 6-foot-5, 275-pound Hobson are getting looks from NCAA Division I and II colleges. Mable was also a Class 4A Associated Press All-State honorable mention as a strong safety last season while Boyles was one of the state’s top tacklers. “We’ve been working hard in the weight room to get in shape. Strength and conditioning coach Kerry Nelson changed up our workouts to try to keep us conditioned later in games,” EN linebacker Jacob Peterson said. “It’s a fast game and we need to last longer.” East Noble have seen experiences where returning to old state championship glory is realistic.


Sprint Cup Series driver Juan Pablo Montoya smiles as he talks with Grissom Golitko, son of NASCAR reporter Raygan Swan, sitting in his car during practice for the Brickyard 400 auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis on Friday.

Brickyard 400. Yes, it was only the top time in practice, but it’s a sign that Montoya will be a contender again at Indy. He needs to be, for the sake of his sanity and perhaps his job. Montoya is in the final year of his contract with Chip Ganassi Racing, where he’s won two races in the eight years since he abruptly left Formula One

for NASCAR. His only wins were on road courses, and he’s not been to Victory Lane since 2010. Montoya heads into Sunday’s race at Indy ranked 23rd in the Sprint Cup standings with three top-10 finishes on the year. Ganassi won’t be pinned down SEE MONTOYA, PAGE B2

to improve our offense, to no avail, throughout this season,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. “By far, he is the best available bat to date.” Soriano outhomered the Yankees all by himself (10-8) in the four weeks prior to the deal. Overall, he was hitting .254 with 17 homers and 51 RBIs with the Cubs. The Bronx Bombers led the majors with 245 home runs last year, but have become the Bronx burn-outs this season, ranking next-to-last in the AL with only 88. Banged up, they’ve played most of the year without Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez. Their slump from the right side — Soriano hits righty — is even more acute. It’s been a month since a right-hander homered for

the Yankees, with Jayson Nix the last to do it on June 25. Soriano, 37, got a big ovation when the public-address announcer read the lineups and welcomed him with “and once again a Yankee.” Soriano saluted the stadium’s Bleacher Creatures during their roll call, and was cheered again when his past Yankees highlights were shown on the video board. Wearing his socks high, Soriano got an assist when his throw led to an inning-ending out in the top of the second. He led off the bottom half and flied out. Soriano made his major league debut with the Yankees in 1999 and quickly blossomed. In 2002, he hit 39 homers and 51 doubles while batting .300, stealing 41 bases, scoring 128 runs and driving in 102.

Newsman doubles as Wolfpack PA man Noble County semipro gridders home tonight against Michigan Grizzlies BY JOSH PATTERSON Special correspondent

ALBION — The biggest cheerleader for the Noble County Wolfpack may just be the guy up in the booth. For those that have lived in western Noble County for any length of time, the name Bob Buttgen brings to mind a gregarious man with a passion for all things Ligonier. The longtime editor of The Advance Leader, a KPC Media Group newspaper, regularly attends a variety of events, meetings and local sporting events throughout the community. He doubles as the public address announcer for the Noble County Wolfpack of the Interstate Football League, and his boisterous presence on the mic gets the fans in attendance at the games fired up to cheer the Wolfpack on to victory. “They just love to hear him,” Wolfpack coach Tom Marsh said. “He’s up there (in the press box), and I’m not going to say he’s a cheerleader up there, but when there’s a big play coming up, or a big play just happened, you can hear his voice change and you can hear his excitement.” Buttgen had plenty of exciting plays to announce for the Wolfpack in last Saturday’s 41-6 victory over the Indiana Minutemen, as Alic Vanover ran for three touchdowns and quarterback Michael Knepper passed for three more. Buttgen’s dulcet tones will be on display again tonight when Noble County (3-0) hosts the Michigan Grizzlies of the Great Midwest Football

League. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Central Noble High School in Albion, site of last week’s win over the Minutemen. While the Wolfpack have prided themselves on a stalwart defense throughout their history, the offense has made tremendous strides in this, the fifth season of the team’s existence. Noble County has averaged 41.3 points per game offensively thus far, providing a respite for the defense. “In past years, with the offense continuing to go 3-and-out, we knew we’d eventually get caught,” Wolfpack defensive back Dustin Petre said. “Most of the guys have been out there the past 2-3 seasons or longer, and they’re a talented bunch. When you have that combination of talent and chemistry, it’s hard to match that.” With the Marion County Crusaders being removed from the IFL just weeks before the start of the season, the Wolfpack have

been working for some time to locate an opponent. Even last week, things looked promising to host a team from the province of Ontario before falling through. Fortunately, the Grizzlies were able to fill the scheduling void. Despite a 3-4 record playing in the GMFL’s Northwestern Division, Marsh warned that the Grizzlies, representing a league comprised of 25 teams spread across several states, present a stiff challenge with talented personnel throughout the roster. “Their league is pretty solid, and they’ve played some great teams,” Marsh added. Trading film for advance scouting purposes stands as commonplace procedure for high school football teams. That’s not always the

Tigers edge Phillies, 2-1 DETROIT (AP) — Alex Avila’s two-run double in the fifth inning put Detroit ahead, and Doug Fister pitched eight impressive innings for the Tigers in a 2-1 victory over Philadelphia on Friday night that sent the Phillies to their season-worst sixth straight loss. Cole Hamels (4-13) was trying to protect a 1-0 lead for the Phillies when he allowed the bottom of Detroit’s batting order to break through. After a one-out walk to Hernan Perez, Ramon Santiago and Avila hit back-to-back doubles. Santiago was playing third base in place of slugger Miguel Cabrera, who hasn’t played since Monday because of an injured left hip. Fister (9-5) allowed three hits and an unearned run. Joaquin Benoit pitched the ninth for his 10th save in 10 chances. Darin Ruf grounded out with a man on third to end it. The Tigers were without Cabrera, outfielder Torii Hunter (left Achilles) and second baseman Omar Infante (sprained left ankle). The Phillies were short-handed, too, with first baseman Ryan Howard and

case in the semipro ranks, including for this week’s game, so Petre explained that the Wolfpack will have to be prepared for just about anything. “You always have to expect them to be a mini-NFL team and have to be ready to play,” Petre said. “It’s just about every person doing their job. If everyone does their job, and we keep it simple and not try to be a hero, no matter what the other team’s running, it won’t work. We’re expecting a talented team to come in.” And when the Grizzlies arrive, they’ll be facing a difficult trio — an offense that’s playing perhaps its best football in team history, a defense that’s angry after surrendering its first points of the year, and Buttgen, who will rile up the home

faithful the only way he knows how. “He tries to make it more than just a football game,” said Marsh. “He gets the fans into it, and I’ve been told a bunch of times that the fans love to hear him. Bob gets the crowd fired up, and with things like music between possessions, it’s things you can’t do at a high school game.” After this week’s home game in Albion, the Wolfpack travels to Bloomington next Saturday. On Aug. 10, the ’Pack plays at East Noble High School in Kendallville against the always-tough Battle Creek Blaze. That game is also the team’s annual cancer-awareness event, with special events and fundraisers to help the battle against breast cancer and other forms of cancer.

on Montoya’s future as driver of the No. 42 Chevrolet. “We’re all trying to get results here. We’re just working on results,” he said. “Juan has a deep history with our team, and we want to give him every opportunity to do well. All of our drivers who have deep histories with our team, we go out of our way to make sure they are given every opportunity.”

The opportunities have been few and far between for Montoya, who won the Indy 500 and the 1999 CART title driving for Ganassi but hasn’t found the same success since reuniting with the car owner in NASCAR. Part of his struggles are linked to the rollercoaster performance of the Ganassi organization, which has failed to put together consistent seasons.

Local Brief • Youth Swimming Wavemakers fare well in league meet STURGIS, Mich. — The Wavemaker Swim Team based out of the YMCA of Steuben County in Angola completed its summer league season last Saturday when it finished second in the league championship meet at the Sturgis YMCA. Arman Salim led the Wavemakers by winning the all-around championship in the age 15-and-older boys division. He won the 100-yard freestyle, 100 butterfly and 200 individual medley. Brooklyn Bourne won the 50 freestyle and the 25 breaststroke. Nathan Bourne won the 100 freestyle and the 100 breaststroke. Gabriel Luepke won the 25 breaststroke. Alexander Salim was first in the 100 individual medley. Ethan Sanders led the field in the 25 backstroke. Maddison Toigo won the 50 breaststroke.

Braun lies to Rodgers GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Ryan Braun apparently has some work to do to repair his friendship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Describing himself as shocked and disappointed, Rodgers said Friday after the Packers’ first training camp practice that Braun “looked at me in the eye on multiple occasions and repeatedly denied the allegations” that the Milwaukee Brewers slugger was using performance-enhancing drugs. Braun this week accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension after admitting to violating baseball’s rules against using PEDs. Rodgers felt duped by his buddy and business associate. A Milwaukee restaurant is named for two of the state’s most well-known athletes, and Rodgers last year defended his friend on Twitter.

Last week during the senior whitewater rafting trip to West Virginia, the water was at the highest possible level and Knights came together as a unit to hold their own and rarely got knocked out of their raft. Last winter, Wolfe and Peterson said they gained a lot from seeing six of their schoolmates wrestle in the IHSAA state finals. “It makes our lofty goals look really possible,” Peterson said. DeKalb is trying to get in a winning direction as coach Mike Cochran begins his third season at his alma mater. The Barons were 2-8 last season. “The guys coming in have done what we asked of them. We have a good core group that can do some things,” Cochran said. “We’re trying to get ahead of the game, build some confidence and build upon our successes.” Cochran is excited about the skilled players he will have returning, including split ends Chad Ramus and Jordan Isaac and slotback Troy Walters. Logan Williams and 6-5 Will Crisman will compete for time at quarterback. Williams is a valued leader who will bring a lot to wherever he plays. The numbers in grades 10-12 for DeKalb are in the 40s, which is a bit down compared to recent years. So staying healthy will be critical. The Chargers and the Blazers are looking to take a step up in a Northeast Corner Conference that appears to be more balanced from top

to bottom than it has been in quite some time. The upper class of Churubusco, Lakeland and Fairfield have been hit hard by graduation losses, and Lee Etzler stepped down as the Eagles coach in December. In 11 seasons at ‘Busco, Etzler was 85-40, won five NECC championships and two regional titles, and had his Eagles in five sectional final games. Eastside was 6-5 last season and was the lone KPC area football team to win a sectional game. Sixth-year Blazer coach Mike Eshbach has to rebuild both the offensive and defensive lines and find a new quarterback to run his spread attack. But he feels he has some pieces in place that can help the team improve on last year’s results. “We scored more points than any other Eastside team last year (319). We spread the ball around to three or four different receivers and they are all coming back,” Eshbach said. “We’re hoping our skilled kids offsets the newness of our quarterback and makes his transition move faster. “Blake Blaker didn’t have to be spectacular last year and our new quarterback won’t have to be either. Just make the right reads and we’ll give him good passing lanes to throw in.” Senior Ty Lockhart leads Eastside’s talented receiving corps. Center Kraig Whitman and left tackle Ryan Liechty will anchor the Blazers up front. “In the 7-on-7s, we played well and competed. So we hope to do the same in games,” Eastside running back-inside linebacker Terry Nickolson

said. “Us older guys need to lead the younger guys in coming to work every day, and we can’t mess up at key times.” In Ligonier, Charger 15th-year coach Monte Mawhorter feels he has a more mature, well-rounded team after taking lumps last year to the tune of a 1-9 record. Just about everything revolved around feature back Erik Mawhorter, Monte’s son, and he graduated. “We played a lot of young kids the last couple of years, and they’re now a year older and more comfortable in their roles,” Monte Mawhorter said. “We have a good group of juniors and seniors, and it should be more difficult for teams to key on one guy.” West Noble junior center-defensive tackle Steven Ramirez said, “Last year, we were not used to each other and didn’t jell. We are this year.” Mawhorter anticipates having between 40 and 50 kids on the team when practices start on Aug. 5, and that is a step in the right direction from a numbers standpoint. A large majority of West Noble’s starters return and most of them play both ways. The Chargers were second to Churubusco in the NECC weightlifting competition in February. West Noble senior quarterback Landon Stover said this offseason has been very productive for his team. “We’ve done a lot more than we did last year,” he said. “We’ve done a lot of 11-on-11 this year and that has really benefitted us. It’s about getting back to being simple.”

CHICAGO (AP) — James Shields tossed seven shutout innings and rookie David Lough homered and drove in another run to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 5-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. The Royals (49-51) have won four straight and six of eight since the All-Star break. The White Sox (40-60) have lost four of five. Shields (5-7) allowed eight hits and walked two but faced only one real scoring threat, working out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning. The veteran right-hander, in his first season in Kansas City, has pitched better than his won-loss record might indicate. He lowered his ERA to 3.09 and has been especially effective on the road, where he improved to 4-3 with a 2.50 ERA in 12 starts. Chicago starter Jose Quintana (5-3) also pitched well but allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings to pick up the loss. Lough led off the top of the third inning with a home run into the right-field bullpen to give the Royals a 1-0 lead. That’s where the score stayed until the seventh, when the Royals stretched the lead to 2-0 on a sacrifice fly by Miguel Tejada that scored Salvador Perez, who led off the inning with a double. The White Sox’s best threat against Shields came in the sixth, when they loaded the bases with two outs. But catcher Josh Phegley grounded into a fielder’s choice to third base on the first pitch to end the inning. The Sox finally got on the board in the eighth on a solo homer by Conor Gillaspie, but the Royals added three insurance runs in the ninth on run-scoring hits by Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas, and a sacrifice fly by Lough.


SPORTS BRIEFS • Mahan on a roll in Canada OAKVILLE, Ontario (AP) — Hunter Mahan birdied the final three holes Friday for an 8-under 64 and a two-stroke lead after the second round of the Canadian Open. Coming off a ninth-place tie last week in the British Open, the five-time PGA Tour winner had eight birdies in his bogey-free round at Glen Abbey to reach 13-under 131. John Merrick was second after a 62. He tied the course record set by Leonard Thompson in 1981 and matched by Andy Bean in 1983 — both when Glen Abbey played to a par of 71 — and Greg Norman in 1986. Merrick had an eagle and 10 birdies, playing the back nine in 6-under 31. Bubba Watson was 9 under after a 67. Aaron Baddeley and Patrick Reed shot 68 to reach 8 under, and Tommy Gainey (64), Chris Kirk (69) and James Hahn (68) followed at 7 under. Mike Weir was the top Canadian, following his opening 73 with a 67 to move into a tie for 26th at 4 under.

Wiebe, Langer tied at the top in Senior British Open tourney SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — American Mark Wiebe shot at 5-under 65 at Royal Birkdale for a share of the lead with Germany’s Bernhard Langer after the second round of the Senior British Open. Langer, the 2010 champion at Carnoustie, had a 67 to match Wiebe at 5-under 135. South Africa’s David Frost was a stroke back after a 68. First-round leader Gene Sauers had a 70 join Peter Fowler (69) and Mark McNulty (67) at 3 under.

Abe, Then to play in U.S. Girls’ Junior final at Sycamore Hills FORT WAYNE (AP) — Lakareber Abe moved into position to become the first black female player to win a U.S. Golf Association individual championship, winning two matches to advance to the 36-hole final in the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship. The 17-year-old Abe, from Angleton, Texas, beat Kathleen Scavo of Benicia, Calif., 4 and 3 in the morning quarterfinals, and topped Bethany Wu of Diamond Bar, Calif., 1 up in the afternoon semifinals. Abe will be a senior in high school and is set to play at Alabama. Abe will face Gabriella Then in the final. Then, the 17-year-old Upland, Calif., player who will be a freshman at Southern California, beat Yueer Feng of Orlando, Fla., 1 up in the semifinals, and edged Megan Khang of Rockland, Mass., 2 and 1 in the semifinals. Abe also is trying to become the fourth black player to win a USGA individual title, following Bill Wright, Alton Duhon and Tiger Woods.

Chiefs, No. 1 pick reach deal KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Eric Fisher started the long drive from his family’s home in Michigan to join the Kansas City Chiefs in training camp a couple of days ago. The only problem: He hadn’t signed a contract. So he hung out in a motel somewhere in Iowa — he wouldn’t say where — while his agent put the finishing touches on his deal. On Friday, Fisher finally got the go-ahead to join his new team at Missouri Western State University for the official start to his professional career. The No. 1 overall pick in the draft, Fisher reached agreement on a five-year contract in the range of $22 million, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because terms were not disclosed. “I’m happy to be here and happy to get to work,” said Fisher, who arrived at training camp in time to pass a conditioning test and participate in the first full-squad workout. “I just wanted to get the deal done,” he said. Fisher was diligent in attending the Chiefs’ entire offseason program, even though he hadn’t signed a contract. But he was absent from three days of rookie practice in St. Joseph, Mo., before joining the rest of the team in camp for Friday’s public workout. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he wasn’t concerned that Fisher wouldn’t get to camp, but still expressed a sense of relief to have the big offensive tackle in the fold. “I think it worked out well for Fish, and at the same time, it’s good for our organization,” Reid said. “Heck, he’s a good football player, and we wanted him in here. We didn’t want him to miss any reps, and he was able to do that. “Until the fish is in the boat, you don’t count it caught, right? That’s how it works.”

Redskins’ Jenkins suspended RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Jarvis Jenkins is the eighth Washington Redskins player to receive an NFL drugs-related suspension in 22 months, sanctioned for four games without pay Friday for testing positive for a banned performance enhancing substance. Expected to start at defensive end, Jenkins will instead miss the first four games of the regular season. He will be eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 30, following the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders.




Pig Adventure keeps drawing tourists to Indiana farm FAIR OAKS (AP) — Malcom DeKryger is seeing a two-year dream come alive in the form of Pig Adventure, the latest agritourism destination at Fair Oaks Farms. “To do a joint venture like this, which ‘piggy backs’ on the intent and themes of what Fair Oaks has been about for eight or nine years, is really exciting,” DeKryger, president of Belstra Milling Co., told The Times in Munster. The latest venture by Fair Oaks Farms, the nation’s largest agritourism facility, follows the popular Dairy Adventure, which is powered entirely by cow manure produced at the site. Now, pig manure is added to the mix and used to power buses covered in photos of pink piglets that transport visitors to the 110,000-square-foot building that houses the Pig Adventure just north of the main Fair Oaks facility on Interstate 65. “We very quickly came to realize that the pig is really the star of the show,

so our emphasis is to show how amazing the pig really is,” DeKryger said. Tourists are greeted at the Pig Adventure building by virtual guides on a life-sized flat screen waving them in. Visitors move into a large, interactive exhibit hall where they can learn about the history of pig farming; virtually chomp up pig feed on an image projected on the floor and watch a video about the Pig Adventure before taking a virtual shower just as the farmers do before entering the gestation barn. There, visitors view the farm’s operations below from second-floor exhibit halls with glass walls in climate-controlled, carpeted exhibit halls. “We see people just staring at the interaction of the staff and pigs,” DeKryger said. “There’s just a lot of touch between the people and the pigs, and both are really comfortable with it.” Some 2,400 pigs in the building are either pregnant or soon will be. All of the pigs are artificially insemi-

nated. Electronic sow feeders use computers to scan radio frequency identification devices implanted in the sows’ ears, which tell the machine how far they are in their gestation period and how much food to dispense for that individual sow. The tour then moves to the birthing barn, where all the sows are either in labor or recently gave birth. Leah Lentini, an intern from Kouts, said there are as many as 6,700 piglets at the farm on any given day, with about 250 born daily. The pigs produced at the farm are sold to farmers in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. A gilt developer unit is planned to open Aug. 5, where 6 1/2-month-old gilt — pigs who have yet to give birth — will be brought into the facility to replace the older sows. Lentini said Fair Oaks pigs and dairy cows are just the beginning. Fair Oaks hopes to add chickens, beef, aquaculture and crops to its agritourism mix in the next 10 years, she said.

part of a future exhibit, Webb said. DeKryger said kids tend to be the most vocal about their excitement with the latest exhibit, but he’s heard from seniors as well. “I had a 90-something-

assistant at Fair Oaks Farms, confirmed plans to break ground this fall on a full-service restaurant and for a groundbreaking for a hotel in 2014. A fruit orchard has already been planted and is growing as

year-old man look at me the other day and in his very slow, quiet way say, ‘This is amazing,’ ” DeKryger said. “That was confirmation to me that we have accomplished what we set out to achieve.”

Purdue: high forage yields anticipated State Fairgoers can WEST LAFAYETTE — Plentiful rainfall that gave way to warm sunshine during the weeks leading up to Indiana’s second and possibly third forage-cutting should lead to high yields despite a low-quality first cutting, a Purdue Extension forage specialist says. Much of the state’s first hay cutting did not happen until the third week of June - much later than the typical mid-May harvest - because of frequent rain that prevented harvest and

allowed it to mature past ideal quality. But farmers are now harvesting the second cutting, and warm temperatures and lots of sunshine should benefit the crop. “It’s an ongoing understanding that the old saying, ‘When the sun shines, you ought to be making hay,’ is very, very true,” Keith Johnson said. “Because if you miss out on the opportunity for an extra half day or day of sunshine, it could be that a weather front pushes

through before the cut crop is baled because of higher than ideal moisture and, as a result of that, the crop sustains possible severe weather damage.” Standing forage crops hold about 75 percent moisture that must be reduced to 20 percent by in-field curing before it can be harvested. Hay baled at a higher percentage of moisture without a preservative is at risk of molding or spontaneous combustion. Alfalfa fields are ideally harvested monthly, with

4-5 cuttings possible in a season. Grass-dominant hay is harvested every 40-45 days, allowing about three harvests. And, as Johnson pointed out, a poor first cutting is not an indicator of a poor hay season. Crop quality can vary between fields and cuttings. “One of the beautiful things about perennial forages is that we may not have gotten the ideal first time around, but we have an opportunity to do it the second or third or fourth time,” he said.

A brief look at Indiana’s history: destined to be agriculture-rich Wheat harvest is pretty well over, corn is tasseling and setting seed, and soybeans are starting to bloom, all wonderful signs that this year’s growing season is much more ELYSIA enjoyable for the plants and RODGERS farmers alike. This same tradition of growing crops has been occurring in Indiana for hundreds of years. Andrea Neal, a teacher at St. Richard’s Episcopal School in Indianapolis, wrote about this history of agriculture in Indiana and why we were destined to be a great crop-growing state: By the time Europeans reached Indiana in the 1600s, our economic future

was already set. Cornfields stretched for miles along the river valleys and colorful vegetables filled gardens tended by Native Americans. Indiana was destined to be an agricultural state. Climate and topography made it so. In 1794, after Gen. Anthony Wayne’s army defeated Native Americans at the Battle of Fallen Timbers near Toledo, Ohio, his troops spent days destroying Indian grain fields throughout the Maumee River Valley and toward present-day Fort Wayne. One soldier told of maize plantations, bean patches, apple-tree stands and potato plots. Wayne himself said he’d never “beheld such immense fields of corn in any part of America, from Canada to Florida.” Ever since, farming has been the foundation of Indiana’s economy.

Nationally, Indiana ranks fifth in corn, fifth in soybeans and second in popcorn production. It represents just under 5 percent of the state’s Gross Domestic Product. “Agriculture’s Bounty: The Economic Contribution of Agriculture,” published by the Indiana Business Research Center, credits the agricultural sector for 190,000 Hoosier jobs. Of those, 103,000 are directly involved in crop production and processing. It’s no accident that Indiana is known for these things. The late, great Indiana University geographer, Stephen Sargent Visher, wrote in his 1944 book “Climate of Indiana” that, “During about nine months in the year the temperatures are more favorable than prevail in most of the world.” Long stretches between frosts, reliable rainfall and

JOHN SATTERTHWAITE Providing Insurance and Financial Services

warm summer days and nights create almost ideal farming conditions. Scholars trace the genetic origins of corn back 10,000 years to a Central American grass called teosinte. It was the upper Mississippian Oneota peoples who lived along the Wabash River, however, who became “the first fully adapted maize agriculturalists” according to one study of native activity in the late prehistoric period, 950-1650 A.D. As the joke goes, “You know you’re in Indiana when … all you see are corn and soybeans.” There’s more than a grain of truth to it. It’s an important part of our history and our present. ELYSIA RODGERS is the agriculture and natural resources director for the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service in DeKalb County.

help feed the hungry INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s Family of Farmers (IFoF) will again offer a fun challenge for Indiana State Fair attendees this year, while also giving them a chance to help feed the hungry. For each fairgoer who finishes the IFoF Recipe Trail, one pound of food is donated to food banks across the state through a partnership between IFoF and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry. Recipe trail travelers helped donate more than 3,000 pounds of food last year. This year’s goal is 3,500 pounds, or 3,500 recipe trail travelers. “One in six Hoosiers is at risk of hunger, and for children the numbers are just one in every four that does not know from where their next meal will come,” said Emily Weikert Bryant, executive director of Feeding Indiana’s Hungry. Participants collect recipe cards from the 10 locations around the fairgrounds and bring them to the IFoF booth at the DuPont Food Pavilion where they will receive a prize for participating and get counted as a donor of a pound of food. The booth also features a chance to register for a daily popcorn giveaway and the grand prize of a chest freezer. Following are the 10 recipe card locations: • Exposition Hall (Rose Acre Farms, booths 526 and 527 on the southwest side of the building) • Ball State Ag/Hort Building (World’s Largest Popcorn Ball) • DuPont Food Pavilion (Three stops: Indiana Wines/

Purdue Wine Grape Team, Indiana Dairy, Purdue) • Habitat for Humanity Ag House • Indiana Farm Bureau Building • Glass Barn • Normandy Barn • Pathway to Water Quality • Final stop/recipe redemption point: IFoF booth at DuPont food pavilion The IFoF recipe cards feature recipes from farmers around Indiana and highlight Indiana’s commodities such as pork, beef, poultry, soybeans, corn and dairy along with an Indiana wine pairing. On the reverse side, fairgoers will meet the farmer and read a personal story from his or her family. Along with the recipe trail, different agricultural groups will be featured and provide food samples at the IFoF booth. IFoF is also partnering with Habitat for Humanity. The Habitat home build on the state fairgrounds will be a stop on this year’s trail. As part of our partnership, Indiana’s Family of Farmers will donate a freezer and food donations to fill the freezer to the new homeowner. The World’s Largest Popcorn Ball, a 5,000-pound, 9-foot popcorn delicacy sponsored by IFoF and featured at the Ball State Ag/Horticulture Building, will be unveiled on Aug. 3 at 10 a.m. This will also be a stop on the 2013 IFoF recipe trail. After the fair, the popcorn will be fed to Indiana livestock. The ball was produced in LaGrange County.

Briefs • Judge to deliberate on Manning WikiLeaks case FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Army Pfc. Bradley Manning’s fate was in the hands of a military judge Friday after nearly two months of conflicting portrayals of the soldier: a traitor who gave WikiLeaks classified secrets for worldwide attention and a young, naive intelligence officer who wanted people to know about the atrocities of war. Judge Col. Denise Lind said she will start deliberating Friday night on the 21 charges Manning faces, but she did not say when she would rule. The most serious charge is aiding the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence in prison. During closing arguments, defense attorney David Coombs said Manning was negligent in releasing classified material, but he did not know al-Qaida would see the material and did not have “evil intent,” a key point prosecutors must prove to convict Manning of aiding the enemy.

Former IMF chief to be tried in France PARIS (AP) — Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique StraussKahn will have to defend himself in a French court on charges of aggravated pimping despite recommendations by prosecutors that the charges be dropped. Judges investigating the case in the northern city of Lille decided on Friday to go ahead with charges of aggravated pimping in a group. The case revolves around an alleged hotel prostitution ring and hinges on whether Strauss-Kahn knew he was partying with prostitutes and whose money was used to pay them. His lawyers have said Strauss-Kahn had attended “libertine” gatherings but did not know that some women there were paid. A total of 14 people, including Strauss-Kahn, are to be tried on aggravated pimping in a group. A more serious charge of organized pimping was dropped.

Shark fin sales to be banned in New York starting next year ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York is banning trade in shark fins starting next summer in an effort to protect the marine predators. The fins are used in soup popular in Chinese cuisine, and New York is home to one of the nation’s largest Chinatowns. An estimated 73 million sharks are killed worldwide to meet the market demand, said Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who signed the law Friday. So-called “finning” of sharks — catching them, cutting off their fins and returning them to the water to die — is already illegal in U.S. and New York coastal waters. New York also prohibits sport fishing for many shark species. “Not only is the process inhumane, but it also affects the natural balance of the oceanic ecosystem,” Cuomo said. The law takes effect July 1.

People • Rapper DMX arrested again GREER, S.C. (AP) — Rapper DMX has been arrested in South Carolina and charged with driving under the influence. Greenville County jail officials said the 42-yearold, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested early Friday. He was also charged with not having a driver’s license. Simmons was arrested last year in nearby Spartanburg County for suspicion of driving without a license. In that case, he was released after paying a fine.


U.S.: Snowden won’t get death penalty WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Eric Holder has assured the Russian government that the U.S. has no plans to seek the death penalty for former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden. In a letter dated Tuesday, the attorney general said the criminal charges Snowden now faces in this country do not carry the death penalty and the U.S. will not seek his execution even if he is charged with additional serious crimes. Holder says his letter follows news reports that Snowden, who leaked details

of two top secret U.S. surveillance programs, has filed papers seeking temporary asylum in Russia on grounds that if he were returned to the United States he would be tortured and would face the death penalty. Snowden has been charged with three offenses in the U.S., including espionage, and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted. The attorney general’s letter was sent to Alexander Vladimirovich Konovalov, the Russian minister of justice. Holder’s letter is part of an ongoing campaign

by the U.S. government to get Snowden back. When Snowden arrived at Moscow’s international airport a month ago, he was believed to be planning simply to transfer to a flight to Cuba and then to Venezuela to seek asylum. But the U.S. canceled his passport, stranding him. He hasn’t been seen in public since, although he met with human rights activists and lawyers. He has applied for temporary asylum in Russia and has said he’d like to visit the countries that offered him permanent asylum — Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua.

The attorney general’s letter may allay reported Russian concerns about how Snowden might be treated if he is deported to the U.S. Some Russian politicians, including parliament speaker Sergei Naryshkin, have said Snowden should be granted asylum to protect him from the death penalty. If Snowden were to go to a country that opposes the death penalty, providing assurances that the U.S. won’t seek the death penalty may remove at least one obstacle to his return to the U.S. “I can report that the United States is prepared to provide to the Russian

government the following assurances regarding the treatment Mr. Snowden would face upon return to the United States,” Holder wrote. “First, the United States would not seek the death penalty for Mr. Snowden should he return to the United States.” In addition, “Mr. Snowden will not be tortured. Torture is unlawful in the United States,” Holder’s letter said. The attorney general said that if Snowden returned to the U.S. he would promptly be brought before a civilian court and would receive “all the protections that United States law provides.”

U.N. human rights office unveils new gay-rights campaign NEW YORK (AP) — Amid a surge of anti-gay violence and repression in several countries, the United Nations’ human rights office on Friday launched its first global outreach campaign to promote tolerance and greater equality for lesbians, gays, transgender people and bisexuals. Called Free & Equal, it’s an unprecedented effort by the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights to change public attitudes around the world on issues that have bitterly divided the U.N.’s own member states. The multi-pronged campaign — announced at a news conference in Cape Town, South Africa — will include videos and public-service announcements distributed through social media, a new website, a series of fact sheets, and engagement by celebrities well-known in different regions of the world. “Changing attitudes is never easy… It begins with often difficult conversations,” said Navi Pillay, the high commissioner for human rights. “And that is what we want to do with this campaign. Free & Equal will inspire millions of conversations among people around the world and across the ideological spectrum.” There were multiple reasons for choosing South Africa as the news conference venue. It is Pillay’s home country, and is a leading nation on a continent where discrimination and violence against LGBT people is widespread. In Cameroon, for example, two men were sentenced to prison this week for gay sex, and a gay rights activist was tortured and killed earlier this month in an attack his friends suspect was related to his activism. South Africa, in contrast, does not criminalize homosexuality and allows same-sex marriage, yet is plagued by extensive anti-gay violence, including frequent rapes of lesbians. However, the new awareness campaign will extend worldwide, reflecting the challenges faced by gays in many countries. In Russia, President Vladimir Putin recently signed a law that will impose hefty fines for holding gay pride rallies or providing information about the gay community to minors. In Haiti, gay-rights leaders say their community has been targeted by a recent series of threats. In Montenegro, several hundred people on Wednesday attacked the Balkan nation’s first-ever gay pride rally, throwing rocks and bottles at activists while some yelled, “Kill the gays.” “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights promises a world in which everyone is born free and equal in dignity and rights — no exceptions, no one left behind,” Pillay said. “Yet it’s still a hollow promise for many millions of LGBT people forced to confront hatred, intolerance, violence

“Changing attitudes is never easy… It begins with often difficult conversations. And that is what we want to do with this campaign.” Navi Pillay U.N. high commissioner for human rights

• and discrimination on a daily basis.” Among the dignitaries throwing their support behind “Free & Equal” was retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who in the 1980s was a prominent leader of the struggle to end South Africa’s apartheid system of racial segregation and white-minority rule. “I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven … I mean I would much rather go to the other place,” Tutu said at Friday’s news conference. “I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this.” The paramount anti-apartheid leader, ailing former South African President Nelson Mandela, also has been an inspiration for Free & Equal, according to Charles Radcliffe, a spokesman for the U.N. human rights office. “He said education is the best weapon against prejudice,” Radcliffe said. “That’s really the best inspiration for this campaign.” At the UN, the office of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a statement commending Free & Equal and declaring that Ban “is personally committed to championing this cause.” According to the human rights office, at least 76 countries still criminalize consensual, same-sex relationships, and discrimination against LGBT people is widespread in many other nations. Less than half of the U.N.’s 193 member states have gone on record in support of gay rights and in opposition to laws criminalizing homosexuality. In March 2011, for example, only 85 states signed a joint statement at the Human Rights Council expressing their concern at violence and human rights violations against LGBT people. Radcliffe said funding for Free & Equal is being provided by outside contributors, and is not reliant on U.N. funds, thus skirting any possible opposition from U.N. members who oppose gay-rights activism. “Some countries may be uncomfortable with this, but our approach has been nonconfrontational,” he said. “We’re standing for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” Free & Equal’s creators say they will try to tailor the messaging to mesh with regional sensibilities and cultures, but there will be common themes, including an effort to make use of personal stories.


In this photo taken on Wednesday, train driver Francisco Jose Garzon Amo is helped by two men as he is

evacuated from the site of a train accident in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

Spain train-crash driver accused of ‘recklessness’ SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain (AP) — Spanish police said Friday they have arrested the driver of the train that sped through a curve and toppled over, killing 78 people, and plan to question him over suspected reckless driving. As blame increasingly fell on the still-hospitalized driver over Spain’s deadliest railway crash in decades, authorities located the train’s so-called “black box” that is expected to shed further light on the disaster’s cause. Investigators said they would seek evidence of failings by Francisco Jose Garzon Amo, the 52-yearold driver, as well as the train’s internal speed-regulation systems in Wednesday’s derailment. The train company, Renfe, defended the driver Friday, lauding what it called his exhaustive experience. But the country’s railway agency, Adif, noted that the driver should have started slowing the train long before reaching the disastrous turn. In an interview with The Associated Press, an American passenger injured on the train said he saw on

a TV monitor screen inside his car that the train was traveling 121 mph seconds before the crash — far above the 50 mph speed limit on the curve where it derailed. The passenger, 18-year-old Stephen Ward, said the train appeared to have accelerated, not decelerated. And Gonzalo Ferre, president of the rail infrastructure company Adif, said the driver should have started slowing the train 2.5 miles before reaching a dangerous bend that train drivers had been told to respect. “Four kilometers before the accident happened he already had warnings that he had to begin slowing his speed, because as soon as he exits the tunnel he needs to be traveling at 80 kilometers per hour,” Ferre said. At the scene, hundreds of onlookers watched as crews used a crane Friday to hoist smashed and burned-up cars onto flat-bed trucks to cart them away. The shattered front engine had been tipped back upright but remained resting beside the tracks, just yards from the passage of resumed train traffic. Grieving families gathered for funerals near

the site of the crash in Santiago de Compostela, a site of Catholic pilgrimage that had been preparing to celebrate its most revered saint, James. Those annual festivities planned for Thursday were canceled. Police lowered the death toll Friday to 78 as forensic scientists matched body parts. They previously had identified 80 dead. Amo was arrested Thursday night in the hospital. Photographs indicated he had suffered a head wound in the crash. Jaime Iglesias, police chief of Spain’s northwest Galicia region, said Amo would be questioned “as a suspect for a crime linked to the cause of the accident.” When asked, Iglesias described Amo’s alleged offense as “recklessness.” He declined to elaborate. The driver is under police guard but has yet to be interviewed. That might be delayed because of his medical treatment, Iglesias said. Renfe said Amo is a 30-year employee of the state train company, who became an assistant driver in 2000 and a fully qualified driver in 2003.

Boyfriend’s mystery act confuses woman DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year, and it has been wonderful. He’s amazing and sweet. We went to the movies for our anniversary and about 50 minutes into it, he turned to me, said he didn’t like the movie and he wanted to leave. I was enjoying it, but I didn’t want to force him to watch it, so we left. When we were out of the theater I asked him why he didn’t like it, and he told me he didn’t want to discuss it. I pressured him for an answer a little bit, but he told me to forget it. This has been bugging me. Should I leave it alone? I understand it’s not that big a deal, but he has done this a few times before — not explaining things when I ask. I am confused about why he won’t tell me. — PUZZLED IN THE




with some women. Only he can tell you why he’s this way, but if he hasn’t opened up in the year you have been seeing each other, it isn’t likely to change. DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law passed away five months ago. I was given the option of taking a winter coat of hers, which I gladly accepted. When would it be appropriate to wear it around my husband’s family? — STILL MOURNING DEAR STILL MOURNING: I’m sorry for your loss. The time to wear the coat would be when the temperature drops enough that you feel you need it. And when you do, if someone should recognize it and comment, just say you are wearing her coat because it helps you feel closer to her; it’s like a warm hug from heaven.

As the hernia grows, it produces an Dr. Anthony abnormal bulge under skin near Komaroff the the groin. It is likely to become larger and more uncomfortable until it is repaired. As the hernia enlarges, there’s a small chance that a portion of herniated intestine

may become trapped and unable to slide back into the abdomen. If this happens, the trapped intestine can twist and die because its blood supply is cut off. An inguinal hernia will not heal on its own. If your hernia is causing any symptoms, or has become even a little larger, you should talk to your doctor about having it surgically repaired. Hernia repair may be done through open or laparoscopic surgery. Both usually are done on an outpatient basis. Most inguinal hernias are repaired by open surgery. The surgeon makes an incision in your groin, then pushes the herniated tissue back into place.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have an inguinal hernia. Do I need to have it repaired? If so, what will the procedure involve? DEAR READER: An inguinal hernia occurs when part of the intestine bulges through a weak spot in the abdominal wall, near the groin. The bulge can be small or large. There is a wall of tissue between our intestines and other abdominal organs and the skin of our belly. That wall is composed of muscles and a tough layer called fascia. You see the muscles when a person has trained his abdominal muscles so intensively that he has “washboard abs.” That wall of tissue is supposed to keep the intestines and other abdominal organs inside the abdomen. But holes can develop in that wall. When a part of the intestines pushes out through the hole, it’s called a hernia. When the hernia occurs in a particular area in the groin, it’s called an inguinal

Perhaps it triggered a memory of something in his DEAR past that didn’t ABBY he want to be reminded of. Or, he Jeanne Phillips may have been bored by the film and so centered on himself that he didn’t care that you were enjoying it. Your boyfriend may be wonderful and amazing, but he also appears to be a poor communicator. This would be a deal-breaker

material reinforces the area to prevent another hernia. In laparoscopic hernia repair, a surgeon makes small incisions in the abdominal wall. He or she then inflates the abdomen with a harmless gas and inserts a laparoscope, a tube-like instrument with a small video camera and surgical instruments, through the incisions. Viewing the internal scene on a monitor, the surgeon pushes the herniated intestine back into place. The hernia opening is repaired with surgical staples. Laparoscopic surgery usually has a faster recovery time than open surgery. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of surgery. Talk to your surgeon about which option is best for you.

Obama seeks transfer of 2 Gitmo detainees to Algeria WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is transferring two Guantanamo Bay detainees to Algeria, the first movement of terrorist suspects from the prison since the president announced a renewed push to close the contentious military-run facility in Cuba. The White House said Friday it was starting the transfers as part of President Barack Obama’s goal to close the prison, a campaign promise that

has eluded him since he took office. “We are taking this step in consultation with the Congress, and in a responsible manner that protects our national security,” Obama press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement. Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale said that under long-standing policy, the names of the two detainees will not be released until after the transfer. He also wouldn’t say what security assurances

they had from the Algerian government as part of the arrangement. “We will not discuss the sensitive, diplomatic arrangements associated with the transfer,” Breasseale said. A spokesman for the House Armed Services Committee said the panel received the certification, which requires the defense secretary to ensure that in transferring a detainee to another country that the individual will not engage in terrorist activities.

An administration official said the detainees were chosen because Algeria is a close U.S. ally that has successfully managed detainees in the past — none of the previous 12 to be released have returned to terrorist activities, unlike some returned to other countries. The official, speaking on a condition of anonymity without authorization to publicly discuss the process, said it has been in the works since several months before Obama

Toll Free 1-877-791-7877

announced his intention this spring to push anew for closure. Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel signed off on the transfer based on the recommendation of an interagency team after a monthslong review. “Secretary Hagel fully supports the president’s goal of closing Guantanamo Bay and this upcoming transfer brings us closer towards reaching that goal,” Little said in a statement.

That’s a high bar that had slowed the transfer process. Under Obama, the U.S. has transferred 242 prisoners out of Guantanamo. The U.S. had transferred more than 500 under President George W. Bush, according to Human Rights First. The U.S. last transferred a prisoner out of Guantanamo when Omar Khadr was sent back to his native Canada in September 2012 to serve the remainder of his sentence for a war crimes conviction by a military tribunal.
