Showgirl lawyers cite Supreme Court GOOD MORNING Radioactive groundwater in Japan nears ocean TOKYO (AP) — Deep beneath Fukushima’s crippled nuclear power station, a massive underground reservoir of contaminated water that began spilling from the plant’s reactors after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami has been creeping slowly toward the Pacific. Now, 2 1/2 years later, experts fear it is about to reach the ocean and greatly worsen what is fast becoming a new crisis at Fukushima: the inability to contain vast quantities of radioactive water. The looming crisis is potentially far greater than the discovery earlier this week of a leak from a tank that stores contaminated water used to cool the reactor cores. That 80,000-gallon leak is the fifth and most serious from a tank since the March 2011 disaster, when three of the plant’s reactors melted down after a huge earthquake and tsunami knocked out the plant’s power and cooling functions. But experts believe the underground seepage from the reactor and turbine building area is much bigger and possibly more radioactive, confronting the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., with an invisible, chronic problem and few viable solutions.

Compare case to voting rights ruling BY MIKE MARTURELLO

ANGOLA — The landmark case that struck down the Voting Rights Act of 1965 just two months ago is being cited in a federal suit pitting Fort Wayne strip club owner Alva Butler against the city of Angola. In a pleading before the U.S. Federal District Court, South Bend and Indianapolis, attorneys for Showgirl owner Butler argued that the city’s justification for enacting

sexually oriented business regulations is based on studies that were out of date. The city’s attorneys have argued that secondary ill effects justify a municipality in regulating sexually oriented businesses. Older legislation is why the U.S. Supreme Court in June struck down one key provision of the Voting Rights Act, saying the laws were out of date and inapplicable to the standards of today. Writing for Butler, attorney

Matthew Hoffer said, “like an ordinance regulating erotic speech, it was necessary for the VRA to serve a current governmental interest. … However, the Court was troubled by the fact that ‘[c]overage today is based on decades-old data and eradicated practices.’” Hoffer’s pleading is part of a document filed Wednesday in response to the city’s motion for summary judgment against Butler, which was filed last month. In its motion, Angola’s attorneys argue that the city was justified in enacting ordinances

regulating sexually oriented businesses and changing zoning for where such businesses can be located. In March, Butler sued the city, claiming that in trying to open a sexually oriented business, his constitutional rights were violated.

AUBURN — After a one-year hiatus, Tour DeKalb is back again with a new focus: family friendly. In 2011, the inaugural Le Tour D’Kalb Bike Ride was held at Rieke Park with more than 70 participants. “The first year was fantastic,” said event organizer Jeremiah Otis. “We had a great turnout.” However, Otis said he hoped more families would have participated in the bike ride.

This time around, Otis said he’s targeting families specifically. New to the event is a separate ride for families — a 6.5-mile ride through the streets of Auburn. Otis said the ride is designed for families and groups. “Grandma and grandpa can take the grandchildren,” he said. The registration fee of $15 includes two adults and the children accompanying them. “We want to keep the cost low for families,” Otis said. Tour DeKalb is planned for

Sept. 7, starting on Ninth Street between Jackson and Main streets. The event is sponsored by the Broken Spokes Bicycle Club of Waterloo and DeKalb County Trails. The family bike ride begins at 10 a.m. on Ninth Street and will follow routes through town including the Rieke Park Trail and the interurban trail between Auburn and Waterloo. Otis said maps of the routes SEE TOUR, PAGE A7

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — A military jury on Friday convicted Maj. Nidal Hasan in the deadly 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, making the Army psychiatrist eligible for the death penalty in the shocking assault against American troops by one of their own on home soil. There was never any doubt that Hasan was the gunman. He acknowledged to the jury that he was the one who pulled the trigger on fellow soldiers as they prepared to deploy overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan. And he barely defended himself during a three-week trial. The unanimous decision on all 13 counts of premeditated murder made Hasan eligible for execution in the sentencing phase that begins Monday. Hasan, who said he acted to protect Muslim insurgents abroad from American aggression, did not SEE GUILTY, PAGE A7

Princely baby gift earns royal thanks BY AARON ORGAN

AUBURN — Mary Petre just started crocheting. Then the Betz Nursing Home resident crocheted some more, making granny squares from odd balls of yarn she had around. As she got more yarn of more colors, she crocheted even more granny squares, eventually crocheting them each together. Petre crocheted for no real reason other than she enjoys crocheting, even in spite of her lingering arthritis. Weeks later, Petre’s project had been fashioned into a baby blanket — one that, even with the edges of the blanket finished with a common color, took her aback with its every-color-in-the-rainbow design. “I thought, boy, that’s wild,” she said. “Nobody would want

that, I don’t know why I even made it.” Around the time Petre eventually finished her “coat of many colors,” as it became known due to its wide array of hues, an ocean away, England’s Prince William and his wife Catherine were welcoming a new son — Prince George. And every baby needs a blanket. Petre was chatting a friend in England when the idea entered her mind to gift the blanket to the young prince, so she set out to learn how — or even if (“I’m a farm gal, I don’t believe in nothin’,” she explained.) — it could be done. To ship the blanket to Buckingham Palace in London, England, Petre was quoted upwards of $200, endangering the SEE ROYAL, PAGE A7


Mary Petre of Auburn crocheted a baby blanket, and following an instinct, sent it the British royal family upon the birth of new Prince George last month. Two weeks later, Petre received a letter from Buckingham Palace thanking her for the gift, accompanied by a portrait of Prince William and Catherine, holding their infant Prince George.





Police Blotter • Man arrested after pellet gun incident BY MATT GETTS

AUBURN — Police have arrested a cman who allegedly shot a woman with a pellet gun in revenge for an earlier incident. James Pettit, 22, of the 600 block of North VanBuren Street, Auburn, was booked into the DeKalb County Jail Thursday on a charge of battery causing bodily injury, a Class A misdemeanor. Auburn Police Department Cpl. Chad Weimer responded to the 600 block of North VanBuren Street regarding a man with a gun at 8:47 a.m. Thursday, according to police reports. Weimer spotted Pettit, who allegedly was carrying a pellet gun. Through the course of his investiga-

tion, Weimer determined that Pettit allegedly used the pellet gun to shoot a woman who was living at the same address. The woman declined medical treatment, but there were physical signs that she had been shot with the pellet gun, including broken skin on her stomach. Weimer said Pettit told him that at some point earlier that morning, he had been shot in the arm with a pellet gun himself. Pettit also showed signs of being shot with a pellet gun, Weimer said. Pettit allegedly told Weimer that because the woman was the only person home at the time he was shot, he assumed she had done it. So when the woman left a bathroom at the residence, Pettit allegedly shot her with a pellet gun in retaliation.

Much of Indiana dry from little rainfall

Indiana sees decline in workplace deaths

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Much of Indiana has dried out after weeks of little rain, although conditions aren’t nearly as severe as during last summer’s extended drought. The U.S. Drought Monitor’s weekly report listed most of Indiana’s midsection and the northwestern corner as abnormally dry, which is the lowest drought condition. The report places 38 percent of the state in that category. In comparison, more than 80 percent of Indiana was in severe to exceptional drought at this time a year ago. The weather service has measured less than an inch of rain this month in Indianapolis. Indiana’s corn and soybean crops don’t seem hurt yet as about 75 percent of each are listed in good or excellent condition.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s labor department says that 2012 saw the state have its fewest workplace deaths of the past two decades. The agency says Indiana had 113 worker deaths last year. That’s down from 122 deaths during 2011. Almost half of Indiana’s 2012 worker deaths were transportation related. Twenty deaths happened at construction sites, while there were 10 manufacturing deaths. State labor commissioner Sean Keefer says the decline in deaths means that employers and workers are doing a better job on safety issues. The state’s number of

workplace deaths has been generally declining since reaching at least 190 fatalities twice in the 1990s.

Men charged with purchasing fraud LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Two men have been charged with switching bar codes on items at Home Depot stores in at least 20 states, buying items on the cheap and selling them for profit online. David and Carson Cameron of Vevay, Ind., face federal charges of mail fraud and wire fraud. In two criminal complaints, the U.S. Secret Service says the men pocketed as much as $1.3 million in profits off merchandise from Home Depot stores around the country.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us throughout this difficult time with the loss of Zac. Whether it is through your visits, prayers, kind words, flowers or gifts of remembrance, we truly appreciate all that you have done for us. The donations in his honor for the DeKalb 4-H Rabbit Barn and the DeKalb County Humane Shelter were very much appreciated. We had many people we are unable to personally thank for your contributions at this time of sorrow. We would like to apologize to anyone who may not have been personally recognized for their support.

Mark Lowry & Russ Taff, August 30

Zac was a remarkable young man who worked hard, played hard and always made time for friends and family before anything else. He was building a successful life in Auburn with a very bright future ahead of him. We will miss his smile, how he made us smile and his thoughtfulness for others. He was a beloved son, brother and a treasured friend to all who knew him.

HAMILTON — A church in Hamilton is growing. To provide more room and services for the congregation at the Hamilton Church of Christ, 4040 E. Church St., a new church is being built. Ground will be broken Sunday between the 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. services, said Justin Stouder, a church member. The event will start with fellowship at 9:30 a.m. then move to the new site to the north of the current church building around 10 a.m. “Eventually, our old church will come down,” said Stouder. The existing church is more than 100 years old. The new building will accommodate 220 people in the sanctuary. It will be built in phases, starting with 7,500 square feet that will include the sanctuary and classrooms. The congregation will continue to use both buildings until the construction process is complete, said Stouder. “The minister, Jeff Alexander, has promoted and grown the church very well over the years,” Stouder said. Sunday’s groundbreaking will be another step in that growth. Jim Ingledue Construction will be on site, and Stouder invited others from Hamilton and beyond to get involved in the ceremony and visit Hamilton Church of Christ.

Thank you again for all of your support and respect for our family while we continue to grieve the loss of this wonderful young man.

The event is held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at DeKalb High School with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track at all times throughout the evening.

Filner will resign San Diego mayor to step down amid scandal SAN DIEGO (AP) — Mayor Bob Filner agreed Friday to resign in return for the city’s help defending him against claims he groped, kissed and made lewd comments to women, allegations that shook and embarrassed the city and turned the former 10-term congressman into a national punch line. Filner was regretful and defiant during a City Council meeting as he explained the “the toughest decision of my life.” He apologized to his accusers but insisted he was innocent of sexual harassment and said he was the victim of a “lynch mob.” “The city should not have to go through this, and my own personal failures were responsible and I apologize to the city,” Filner said after the council voted 7-0 on a deal that ended a political stalemate after 17 women publicly accused him of harassment. “To all the women that I offended, I had no intention to be offensive, to violate any physical or emotional space,” he said. “I was trying to establish personal relationships but the combination of awkwardness and hubris I think led to behavior that many found offensive.” The city will pay Filner’s legal fees in a joint defense of a lawsuit filed by the mayor’s former communications director and pay for any settlement costs assessed against the mayor except for punitive damages, said City Attorney Jan Goldsmith. The city would also pay up to $98,000 if Filner wants to hire his own attorney. Goldsmith said the city was obligated to provide his legal defense no matter what. The city now must turn to settling the lawsuit by the former communications director, who was the first woman to go public with allegations against Filner and is the only accuser to file a lawsuit against the mayor and the city. Irene McCormack Jackson claimed the mayor asked her to work without panties, demanded kisses, told her he wanted to see her naked and dragged her in a headlock while whispering in her ear. “My thoughts are with the courageous women, who because they spoke out, galvanized the residents of this great city and its elected leaders to rise up against a serial sexual harasser and a gross abuser of power,” said McCormack, as she is known professionally. “Bye-bye, Bob. You will not be missed.”

Our Letter Policy •

Beware the warrior cops We need police to catch murderers, thieves and con men, and so we give them special power — the power to use force on others. Sadly, today’s police use that power to invade people’s homes over accusations of trivial, nonviolent offenses — and often do it with tanks, battering rams and armor you’d expect on battlefields. In his book “Rise of the Warrior Cop,” Radley Balko recounts the rise of police SWAT teams (SWAT stands for Special Weapons And Tactics) armed with military equipment. JOHN heavy SWAT raids began as rarely methods of dealing STOSSEL used with violent situations, like hostage-takings. But government always grows. In the 1970s, there were about 300 SWAT raids per year. “As of 2005,” says Balko, “100 to 150 per day.” What began as a few specialized groups of police trained to address genuine threats to safety has degenerated into small armies descending on organic farms where farmers sell unpasteurized In the 1970s, there were milk and legal medical about 300 SWAT raids marijuana per year. “As of 2005,” dispensaries getting raided says Balko, “100 to 150 as if they per day.” were heavily armed threats. The increase began under Nixon-era politicians who wanted to look “tough on crime,” even if that meant exaggerating the threat posed by illegal drugs. As the futile war on drugs escalated, cops worried that drug users would destroy evidence if cops knocked and announced themselves. So they stopped doing that, changing a centuries-old rule that treated citizens’ homes as their castles — castles whose owners must be presented with a warrant before police can enter. Soon, every police department wanted a SWAT team — and many were more interested in getting cool military gear than in considering the potential downside — like terrorizing innocent people, raiding the wrong house and causing violence. “I found over 50 cases where a completely innocent person was killed in one of these raids,” says Balko. Often this happens because the homeowner does not realize who is breaking down his door in the middle of the night. Iraq War veteran Jose Guerena just knew that armed men were bursting in. So he picked up his semi-automatic rifle. Before he could take the safety off, police fired 71 bullets, hitting him 22 times. Police raided his house because they suspected drugs were there. But after Guerena was killed, police found no drugs and no evidence of drug dealing. Today, the vast majority of SWAT raids are about drugs, not terrorism or hostage situations. Guerena’s brother was arrested on drug charges. Balko says, “It appears Guerena’s crime was being related to someone.” Now that the public is finally starting to have doubts about the drug war, another type of war has arrived: the War on Terror. The idea that domestic enemies need to be raided and rooted out — that law enforcement should be given a free hand or we could all be killed — got a new lease on life. And a new source of funding. Despite laws clearly saying that soldiers may not be used for domestic policing except in very special circumstances, the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security now offer armored vehicles — tanks and troop transports, body armor and stun grenades — to police departments, large or small. Local police jumped at the chance to have new toys — so they expanded the circumstances under which those toys get used. The police chief in quiet Concord, N.H., cites people not so different from me as an excuse for getting DHS money to buy an armored vehicle. In an application for what is essentially a tank, he wrote that groups like the Free State Project — libertarians who moved to New Hampshire seeking increased individual freedom — pose “daily challenges” to the police of Concord. Free Staters better watch out next time they get into an argument over a traffic ticket. Most libertarians argue that police, courts and military are legitimate functions of government. We focus our skepticism on completely illegitimate government actions, like corporate welfare. But few freedoms are more basic than being able to sleep securely in your bed without armored men bursting through your door.

Letters To the Editor • Why take someone’s beloved pet?

“Look mother, no cavities!”, we stopped at our favorite shop on Coliseum Boulevard for soup and sandwich. Our satisfactory day was highlighted by a group of high school students who came into the restaurant. It was evident that their high school had a dress code. I mentioned to my wife that here is an athletic team from a Christian school. They all had dress shirts, ties, dress pants and shoes. But it wasn’t just the dress of the young men, but their demeanor that was so impressive. Well, being the inquisitive preacher that I am, I approached their line to find out. I was right. With courtesy, they informed me that they were the soccer team from Bishop Dwenger High School. With patience, they continued to answer my questions about their school and team. There you have it, folks. It wasn’t just the dress, but the attitude of these young men that stood out and made them a crowd apart. In as much as my wife and I were on the first school board to start Lakewood Park Christian School in Auburn, it was good to see that others are continuing to promote that which makes a great difference in the lives of youth today: Christian education. Thanks fellows. You made the day of this old preacher and his wife.

After one brief pitstop, I am finally back home It would be romantic to say that I am drizzling beach sand from my suitcase as I zigzag up and down Indiana this week. Unfortunately the best I have for you is that I am actually dropping small round circles of white paper from my three-hole punch. If you remember, I took my three-hole punch with me to Ocracoke. However something happened to it in my suitcase and wherever I go I leave trails of these circles. In some ways I feel like Hansel and Gretel. They left small pieces of bread crumbs so they could find their way home. At least they didn’t litter since the birds ate their trail. I first noticed the circles when I boarded the Amtrak train. There were so many I could not actually pick up the tiny little circles so I just let them follow me to Washington, to Waterloo, to my dining room. When I arrived home two weeks ago I saw the circles expanding into my library. I quickly swept them up before Virginia noticed. (She is very neat and tidy!) The more I swept the more circles followed me. As I repacked for this storytelling journey I noticed the circles have followed me to Indianapolis. (I did carry the bag to the garbage can and shake it out…twice!) So now they are all over Ellen’s house. Luckily we have been so busy she has not noticed the small trail leading up to my bedroom. One of the best perks of being a performer in the IndyFringe is that I get to attend the other shows free. I am amazed at the talent and the creativity of the work that I see. There are solo artists as well as

theater and dance companies that take to the many stages on Massachusetts Ave. There is the Tapman, Tristan Bruns from Chicago, who directs and stars in his hour long show of tap dancing with his company. His shoes click, the sand flies and I sit on the edge of my seat wondering how it is possible. At the end of the show he invites any audience member who knows how to tap dance (even in the slightest) to come on up for the finale. At the show I attended, a woman went onstage. LOU ANN Afterward she told me had not tapped for HOMAN- she 30 years. I thought she SAYLOR was great even with her flip-flops. One evening I watched Timothy Mooney from Minneapolis give excerpts from the greatest speeches of all times. Spellbound I sat listening to speeches from Socrates, Roosevelt, MLK and several others. I watched Mooney change voice, character and stance as the speeches continued for an hour. I have to give a bow to my favorite show of all in this year’s Fringe, and that is “Underneath the Lintel” by Pat O’Brien. I actually attended this show twice, once free as a performer, and then I bought a ticket for another show since he sells out often. In this solo performance O’Brien plays the part of an eccentric librarian finding a book 123 years overdue. His performance is stellar and the content is fascinating.

My shows continue as well with a sell-out performance on opening night and great reviews. When I am not performing or attending other shows I am standing outside the Phoenix Theatre handing out cards to advertise my show. Sometimes I do not get very far as the conversation often turns to my broken arm. “Now that,” one man says, “should be your show.” All folks love the story of ghosts scaring me on Ocracoke. I do have to admit it is a good story, especially now that the cast will be coming off this week. I am often asked where I am from. I have had a delightful time with this as well. I answer, “I am from the exotic town of Angola, Indiana.” This usually brings a laugh or a look of puzzlement as they try to figure out where that might be. I believe Angola is exotic since, unlike New York, Vegas, Minneapolis and Australia, I am the only one here from my hometown. The shows wrap up before midnight and Ellen and I head on home. It has been a long week with still two more shows this weekend. By late Sunday night I will pack up (again) and follow the circles home … home to my family, my garden, my students and my Dorothy red shoes waiting for me. There is indeed, no place like home. 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.





Regional council aims to boost logistics sector FROM STAFF REPORTS

the Regional Chamber of Northeast Indiana, Vision 2020 Infrastructure Task Force chairman and a Conexus Indiana Logistics Council Infrastructure Task Force chair, will serve as chairman of the regional logistics council. The council will address priority projects and public policy issues that affect a 13-county region including Adams, Allen, Blackford, DeKalb, Grant, Huntington, Jay, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley counties. The council will develop a strategic plan to strengthen the movement of manufactured products through the region, the state and the world. In addition to serving as a guide for local projects, the plan will be integrated

FORT WAYNE — The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, Regional Chamber of Northeast Indiana and Conexus Indiana, the state’s advanced manufacturing and logistics initiative, Thursday announced the formation of the Northeast Regional Logistics Council. The logistics council is an industry-led initiative to identify and advance local projects and policies to strengthen the region’s logistics sector. It comprises more than 30 advanced manufacturing and logistics industry representatives from northeast Indiana. Andy Brooks, president of Brooks Construction Co., board member of

into the statewide logistics plan spearheaded by the Conexus Indiana Logistics Council. Northeast Indiana serves as a strategic logistics hub for businesses distributing products to the Great Lakes/ Midwest region. It ranks as one of the lowest-cost regions in the United States for serving national markets, ranking eighth in the country. “Northeast Indiana has major logistics infrastructure assets, and our goal is to protect and grow those assets in order to continue to grow our logistics industry and our position as the ‘Crossroads of America,’� said David Holt, vice president of operations and business development for Conexus Indiana. “For

the last three years, the Conexus Indiana Logistics Council has studied the key issues facing the industry and has recommended improvements including investing in our highways, optimizing our airport network, maintaining our locks and dams, all while reducing the tax and regulatory barriers to logistics companies.� Several projects have been identified at the state level by the Conexus Indiana Logistics Council, including: • the Hoosier Heartland Highway, which involves replacing S.R. 25, a two-lane rural highway constructed in the 1930s, with a new four-lane, limited-access highway that will connect Lafayette to

Fort Wayne, where it will link to the U.S. 24 Fort to Port highway; • a limited-access highway along U.S. 30 from Valparaiso to Fort Wayne to improve connectivity between Interstate 69 and I-65; • completion of I-69 to Evansville; and • ensuring freeway-like access for Marion. “The northeast Indiana region is in an enviable position when it comes to logistics, being home to national and international distribution companies that realize the benefits of our region’s assets,â€? said Brooks. “As a business owner in this region, I know how important it is to leverage our existing position and continue to

plan for future growth.� “Interstate accessibility has been identified as one of the seven priorities of our Vision 2020 initiative. Improving our infrastructure and supporting the logistics industry cluster is vital to the growth of our economy and business investment in the region,� said John Sampson, president and CEO of the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership. “Our partnership with the regional chamber and Conexus on this issue underscores the importance of the logistics council.� Additional meetings and forums will be held throughout 2013 and early 2014, resulting in the development of a logistics strategic plan.

CLEAR LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The St. Joseph River Watershed Initiative will conduct its annual meeting Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Clear Lake Town Hall, 110 Gecowets Drive. The initiative is in the beginning stages of developing a watershed management plan for the Upper St. Joseph River Watershed. The Upper St. Joseph River Watershed stretches across three states and encompasses more than 335,000 acres. Maintaining or improving the vitality and quality of the Upper St. Joseph River and its tributaries cannot be done without the help of stakeholders, especially those who live or work in the watershed, according to the initiative. The meeting is open to the public and will include a grant status report, information on future steps including the development of a cost-share program, a presentation on the Clear Lake Watershed and a question-and-answer period, when residents will be invited to share their concerns. Following the watershed discussion, Robin Scibailo, aquatic plant biologist with Purdue University, will present the results of an aquatic invasive species survey conducted on Clear Lake during June and July. Individuals who live or work in the Upper St. Joseph River watershed are encouraged to attend the meeting. Those who are unable to attend are encouraged to visit the watershedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website,, for more information and a copy of the latest watershed management plan.

Because Hasan never denied his actions, the court-martial was always less about a conviction than it was about ensuring he received a death sentence. From the beginning, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deprive the military and the families of the dead of the justice they have sought for nearly four years. Autumn Manning, whose husband, retired Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, was shot six times during the attack,

She said she had been concerned that some charges might be reduced to manslaughter, which would have taken a death sentence off the table. “This is so emotional,” she said in a telephone interview from Lacey, Wash., where she and her husband live. “I’ve just been crying since we heard it because it was a relief. … we just wanted to hear the premeditated.” Hasan, who represented himself after firing his legal team, was also convicted on 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.

Ex-Marquette star Meminger, 65, dies NEW YORK (AP) — Dean Meminger, the former Marquette guard who played a reserve role on the New York Knicks’ 1973 NBA championship team, was found dead Friday in a Manhattan hotel room. He was 65. New York City police said staff at the Hamilton Heights Hotel found Meminger unconscious and unresponsive inside a room and emergency medical personnel pronounced him dead. Police said there were no signs of trauma and that the cause of death hadn’t been determined. They said an investigation is ongoing. “We want to thank everyone for their prayers and condolences during this difficult time for our family,” Meminger’s family said in a statement.

Eastside’s P.J. Dean looks for running room during Friday’s season-opening game with Garrett. Dean ran for 267 yards and four touchdowns, and caught one pass for another score as the Blazers won, 46-22.

BUTLER — For 2-1/2 quarters, it looked like the scoreboard wouldn’t be big enough at the rate the Eastside Blazers and Garrett Railroaders were putting up points in Friday’s season-opening game. All of a sudden, the Blazers got a couple of stops in the third quarter and grabbed the momentum on the way to a 46-22 win. That snapped a 10-game skid to the Railroaders, and gave Eastside possession of the “Train Trophy” for the first time.

The teams combined to rack up nearly 800 yards of offense. The Blazers finished with 352 yards on the ground and 126 through the air. The Railroaders accumulated nearly all of their yardage on the ground, with 266 rushing yards. Eastside junior P.J. Dean carried 18 times for 267 yards and four scores. He caught one pass for another touchdown. “It means a lot,” said Eastside senior Ryan Liechty as he passed the wooden rivalry trophy among teammates and coaches. “This means everything. It’s awesome.”

“It’s something we haven’t felt in a long time,” senior Kadis Renier added. “It’s something for our senior legacy. We’ll always be known for bringing the trophy to Eastside.” Garrett’s Bryit Sumner — who finished with 146 yards on 31 carries and two touchdowns — had just scored on a five-yard run and teammate Bo Davis added a conversion to give the visitors a 22-21 lead barely four minutes into the third. The Blazers quickly responded,

WATERLOO — A young DeKalb team with a new coach might have to look beyond the scoreboard as the high school football season progresses. The numbers were not what the Barons would have liked, a 44-7 loss to Class 3A No. 10 Mishawaka Marian. Interim coach Mike DeVos found reason to be positive about his team’s enthusiasm and effort, however. “To start out the game on both sides of the ball, we really came out fired up,” DeVos said. “That was the most pads I’ve seen smacking since I’ve been there. “We have a lot of young guys. Almost 90 percent of the team, first varsity game under the Friday night lights, they responded great. We came out swinging tonight, and that was great to see.” The Barons main lament was letting slippery quarterback Devin Cannady escape containment too many times. He often turned plays DeKalb appeared to have defended well into big gains. SEE DEKALB, PAGE B2

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — The crowd showered Kyle Busch with boos Friday night as he celebrated yet another Bristol Motor Speedway win in Victory Lane. “Whether you’re booing or cheering, glad you’re here,” Busch said over the public address system. “Hope you’re booing more tomorrow when we take home another trophy.” It wouldn’t be out of the question for Busch, who will be going for a Bristol sweep in Saturday night’s Sprint Cup Series race. He won Wednesday night’s Truck Series race and dominated Friday night’s Nationwide Series race, starting from the pole and leading 228 of the 250 laps. “You’ve got to win two to go for three, so here’s two,” said Busch, who has 15 career national wins at Bristol and swept the week in August 2010. His win Friday night was his 60th Nationwide series win of his career, and 120th spanning NASCAR’s three national series. It was also his 15th of the season after winning just one race in all three series last season. “It comes from preparation, it comes from the shop, it comes from practice here,” said Busch, who also praised crew chief Adam Stevens. “Adam and I, we work real well together.” Brad Keselowski was second, followed by Austin Dillon, Justin Allgaier, Kyle Larson, Trevor Bayne, Ty Dillon, Kasey Kahne, Brian Scott and Elliott Sadler. Sam Hornish Jr. entered the race as the Nationwide Series points leader but had a spark plug wire problem and finished 12th. He has a six-point lead over Austin Dillon, who gained two spots in the standings.

BLAZERS: Dean’s 60-yard TD run turns game in Eastside’s favor FROM PAGE A1

as Dean ripped off a 40-yard run, setting up his own 1-yard run just over a minute later. Eastside missed the conversion run, but led 27-22. The Railroaders then went three-and-out, and punted the ball away. On the next scrimmage play — a sweep to Dean that went for a 60-yard touchdown — swung the momentum in Eastside’s favor. Three plays after that, the Blazers had the ball back, as Renier recovered a fumble at the Garrett 28. The Blazers needed just five plays to cash in again, this time on a 17-yard pass to Renier by freshman Conner Dove. With 1:23 left in the third, the Blazers were in command, 40-22. “That was definitely the game-changer we needed,” Liechty said. “We just needed to stay focused,” Renier added. “We weren’t stopping until the final quarter.” On the game’s second play, Garrett’s Dustin Underwood stepped in front of a Dove pass and returned it to the Blazer 10, setting up Sumner’s short TD run barely two minutes into the game. The Blazers answered with a nine-play, 66-yard

Garrett tied it early in the second quarter as quarterback Noah Follett snuck in from the one, and Ryan VandeZande completed a conversion pass to Garrett Sutton.

Ranger homer barrage dooms Sox CHICAGO (AP) — Ian Kinsler raced around the bases for a bizarre insidethe-park homer and Adam Rosales had a conventional two-run shot, helping the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 11-5 on Friday night. The AL West-leading Rangers (75-53) had five homers in all while winning for the 19th time in 23 games to move a seasonhigh 22 games over .500. Jeff Baker and pinch hitter Mitch Moreland each had two-run shot, and Adrian Beltre belted a solo drive. The White Sox were unable to overcome a shaky outing by ace Chris Sale, ending a season-high

DEKALB: Ramus scoops, scores to get Barons with seven points

six-game winning streak. Sale (9-12) allowed eight runs and eight hits in seven innings. A.J. Pierzynski and Alex Rios each had a nice night in their return to U.S. Cellular Field for the first time since leaving the White Sox. Pierzynski, who signed with Texas as a free agent in the offseason, went 1 for 4 with a sacrifice fly. Rios, who was traded to the Rangers on Aug. 9, had two hits and scored two runs. Pierzynski received a standing ovation when he was introduced in the first inning. But the biggest break

went to Kinsler, who hit a line drive in the third that rolled into a drainage track under the left-field wall. By the time Dayan Viciedo was able to find the ball, Kinsler was on his way to the plate for his 11th homer and a 5-3 Rangers lead. White Sox manager Robin Ventura came out to argue the play and was ejected. Baker and Rosales connected in the second inning, powering Texas to a 4-0 lead. Rosales added a sacrifice fly in the fourth that made it 6-3. Martin Perez (7-3) allowed four runs and eight hits in seven innings for the rangers, who have won eight

of their last nine road games to improve to 37-26 away from home. Perez also hurt himself with a wild pitch and a balk. Viciedo had a two-run single in the second and eventually came around on Gordon Beckham’s base hit, pulling the White Sox within one. But that was as close as it would get. Beltre hit his 27th homer in the fifth and Kinsler singled in a run in the seventh to give the Rangers an 8-4 lead. NOTES: It was the first time in Rangers history that they had a pinch-hit and inside-the-park home run in the same game. … Chicago left eight runners on base.

Cannady, a converted wide receiver, ran for 183 yards and three touchdowns and also threw for two scores. The Barons got a big lift from senior Chad Ramus, whose 55-yard scoop and score of a Marian fumble cut the Knights’ lead to 14-7 with 3:46 left before the half. DeKalb’s defense then made a stop, but three straight incomplete passes left the Knights with two minutes and two time outs. Cannady had two key scrambles as the Knights when 75 yards in seven plays. Hard-running senior Tyran Ottbridge ran for 16 yards to the Baron 2, and Cannady took it in from there for a 21-7 halftime lead. “We’re a play or two here or there from going into the half 14-7 with the 10th-ranked team in 3A,” DeVos said. “It was very impressive to see out of a young an inexperienced team. It gives us a lot of hope. “We have a lot of little things to clean up, and we’re going to get there this week. We’re all very excited for Garrett next week.” Marian took over in the third quarter. The defense forced consecutive three-and-outs by the Barons, and the offense put up two quick scores, the first when 6-foot-5 Will Whitten outleaped two DeKalb defenders on a 26-yard scoring play. The Knights also got

Cannady punctuated the victory with a 33-yard scoring run early in the fourth quarter before the Knights pulled their starters.

Brewers edge Reds CINCINNATI (AP) — Khris Davis hit a pair of two-run homers in consecutive at-bats for the first multihomer game of his career, powering the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

the second time in seven games this season. The Reds lost for only the fifth time in their last 17 games, a surge that has tightened the NL Central race. They came in a seasonhigh 18 games over .500. Davis connected in the sixth off Homer Bailey and again in the eighth off Alfredo Simon (5-4), who had a rough inning.

NEW YORK (AP) — Miguel Cabrera and the hard-hitting Tigers were too much for Daisuke Matsuzaka in his return to the majors. Cabrera hit a three-run homer, Torii Hunter also connected and Detroit tagged Matsuzaka early in his Mets debut to beat New York 6-1 on Friday night. “When I used to catch him in Boston, he had a little more on it,” Tigers slugger Victor Martinez said. “Today I think his ball was pretty straight. He left a few pitches up in the zone, and the big guys didn’t miss.” Hunter added a long RBI double and Doug Fister (11-6) pitched into

the seventh inning to help Detroit win the interleague series opener. Austin Jackson went deep for the second straight day for the AL Central leaders, back in New York after dropping two of three at Yankee Stadium two weeks ago. The series resumes Saturday afternoon with a rematch of All-Star game starters at Citi Field: Max Scherzer puts his 18-1 record on the line against New York ace Matt Harvey in a nationally televised game. The Mets said it’s the first time All-Star game starters will square off in a regular-season game during the same season, according to research by the Elias

Sports Bureau. “I figure this place will be hopping pretty good,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “It should be fun.” Minus two injured starters, the Mets signed Matsuzaka on Thursday to fill a hole in the rotation and immediately handed him a difficult assignment. Led by Cabrera and Prince Fielder, the Tigers began the night leading the majors in batting average and second in runs. The right-hander from Japan, a former Red Sox star who had been pitching in Cleveland’s farm system, got off to a promising start. Working on three days’ rest and wearing No. 16, he threw a called third strike past Jackson.

Hoosiers coach still weighing QB options BLOOMINGTON (AP) — It’s less than a week until Indiana begins its season and coach Kevin Wilson still hasn’t chosen his quarterback. The decision may not come until Thursday night when the Hoosiers open against Indiana State. After hinting this Wilson week that he might make an announcement during Friday’s regular news conference, Wilson explained that he’s still weighing his options. “This isn’t about favorites, this is about winning some daggone football games,” he said. “And it’s about time we start doing that.” Quarterbacks Cam Coffman, Tre Roberson and Nate Sudfeld have been competing through the offseason, spring practice and now through preseason camp. With the Indiana State game looming, nobody seems to know which direction this is

going — not the quarterbacks, not the coaches, not the team. But unlike previous seasons, in which Wilson has challenged players to win the job and to spend more time studying game tape, Wilson has liked what he’s seen this year. And he may even be willing to use multiple quarterbacks. Or he may revert to what Indiana did last season — allowing Coffman and Sudfeld to compete for the job each week — after Roberson went down with a season-ending broken left leg. To Wilson, naming a starter at this point just doesn’t seem like a big deal. “Those guys have worked very, very hard. I don’t know where they are right now, but if I had to guess, I’d say they’re probably watching video on their iPads,” Wilson said. “They’ll watch practice twice, sometimes with me and sometimes with coach (Kevin) Johns, and I’m talking about different things like if we’re doing this, what is our best option. I’ve got a lot of trust

in all of those guys and that’s why our offense is not going to change, whoever plays.” Each has different strengths. Roberson won the starting spot during his freshman season and kept it until the injury ruined his 2012 season in Game 2. If he’s 100 percent, he gives the Hoosiers a more dynamic runner. Coffman and Sudfeld took turns replacing Roberson and the tandem pocket-passing quarterbacks actually had Indiana in position to make an improbable run at a division title. The Hoosiers then lost their final three games of the season to fall out of contention. It’s been so close that even those catching the balls can’t predict an outcome. “We’re blind, just like everybody else,” receiver Cody Latimer said. Tight end Ted Bolser added: “Coach keeps that pretty confidential. I don’t know much about the situation. They all can play, they all can throw and one’s a little better runner.”

Whoever gets the job, Wilson does expect to see a better team on the field. A year ago, when the Hoosiers faced the resurgent Sycamores, a Football Championship Subdivision school, running back Shakir Bell made it a much closer game than most expected. Indiana finally held on for a 24-17 win. This time, Wilson expects a better performance — especially from a defense that allowed more than 35 points a game. But fans want to know their quarterback, and that’s not a decision Wilson is prepared to make yet. “We may not make a decision till Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,” Wilson said. “All three of them have done well. … We’re going to do what we do on offense, some of the guys have different strengths but the gist of the offense will be what it will be — we’re going to spread it out and you may see a little more personnel groupings and we’re still going to work tempo.”


SPORTS BRIEFS • Ramirez to Cubs completes Garza deal with Texas ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Rangers have sent right-hander Neil Ramirez to the Chicago Cubs to complete the trade that brought right-hander Matt Garza to Texas last month. The deal was completed Friday, after the Cubs had claimed Ramirez off waivers. The pitcher was assigned to Double-A Tennessee. Ramirez led the Double-A Texas League with 127 strikeouts and was 9-3 with a 3.84 ERA in 21 starts for Frisco. Texas previously sent right-handers C.J. Edwards and Justin Grimm, along with infielder Mike Olt, to the Cubs. When Garza was acquired Garza on July 22, the deal called for the Rangers to send one or two more players to be named later to the Cubs. Garza, who can become a free agent after the season, is 3-1 with a 4.32 ERA in six starts for Texas.

Steelers acquire running back PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers bolstered their injury-plagued backfield on Friday, acquiring running back Felix Jones from Philadelphia for linebacker Adrian Robinson. The deal is pending each player passing a physical. The 26-year-old Jones gives the Steelers needed depth at running back. Rookie Le’Veon Bell is out with a sprained right foot and is out indefinitely. Isaac Redman is dealing with a nerve injury and return specialist LaRod Stephens-Howling sat out last Monday’s preseason game against Washington with a sprained knee. Jones was the 22nd overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys but never stayed healthy enough to become a feature back. He has rushed for 2,728 yards and 11 touchdowns in 64 games.

Capitals sign Grabovski to 1-year, $3M deal ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — The Washington Capitals have signed Mikhail Grabovski to a one-year, $3 million contract, giving the team another candidate for second-line center after the departure of Mike Ribeiro. The Capitals announced the deal Friday. The 29-year-old Grabovski spent the last five seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He had career-highs with 29 goals and 29 assists in 2010-11. Last year his production slipped to nine goals and seven assists, and the Maple Leafs bought out his contract last month. Ribeiro was second on the Capitals with 49 points last season, but he signed a free agent deal last month with the Phoenix Coyotes.

West Texas A&M relieves winningest coach of duties CANYON, Texas (AP) — West Texas A&M has relieved head football coach Don Carthel of his duties, cutting ties with its winningest coach on the threshold of a new season. A university statement offered no explanation for the change. However, athletic director Michael McBroom told the Amarillo Globe-News that Carthel violated rules against providing an NCAA investigation with false or misleading information. Carthel took a program that had won seven games in four years before his arrival to eight winning seasons, a 79-22 record, six Division II playoffs and five Lone Star Conference titles. Last season, the Buffaloes reeled off a 12-3 record.

Indiana cantaloupe crop rebounding from 2012 scare EVANSVILLE (AP) — Over the past two seasons cantaloupe growers have been hit by outbreaks of illnesses among consumers that were blamed on bacterial contaminations associated with the melons that cast a pall over the entire industry. But this year the growers are hitting back with a homegrown food safety initiative. In 2011, 146 people became ill in a listeria outbreak traced to a Colorado cantaloupe grower, Jensen Farms. Closer to home, last summer, Chamberlain Farms in Gibson County was identified as the source of a salmonella outbreak that sickened 261 people in 24 states. In response to those two incidents, a group of cantaloupe farmers — including some in the Tri-State — has formed the Eastern Cantaloupe Growers Association, which focuses on food safety practices, the Evansville Courier & Press reported this week. Based in Georgia, the association got its start last fall, as growers got together to decide what they could do about the recent food safety problems. “It was basically trying to restore consumer and buyer confidence in the cantaloupe market,” said the association’s executive director, Charles Hall. As compared to other types of melons, Hall said, cantaloupes can be more prone to contamination because their outer surface is rough, or “netted.” This surface makes it easier for microbes to attach to the surface of the fruit, and harder to clean them off. The organization was incorporated in January and now has about a dozen or so members from a handful of states: Indiana, Illinois, Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina. “That’s not a lot — but we only got started last year,” Hall said. The group’s officers and directors include representatives from several Tri-State farms: Wayne County, Ill.-based Frey Farms, and Knox County, Ind.-based Melon Acres and Wonning Melon Farms. Association members agree to abide by specific practices in the growing, harvesting, packing and transporting of cantaloupes. These practices are numerous and include things like testing water sources at least once a month; and avoiding the use of carpeting, wood or other porous surfaces that come into contact with the fruit. Members also must undergo food safety audits, including one unannounced audit during packing season. “There’s always a chance of some kind of outbreak happening, but the process that our growers are following are as good as you can get from that standpoint,” Hall said. So how has this year’s cantaloupe season been? Hall said he doesn’t have hard numbers, but believes the industry is rebounding from the past two rough years. “The American public’s pretty forgiving,” Hall said. Anecdotally, Hall said, he’s heard from some growers who said they planned to get out of the cantaloupe business.

August lawn care requires little effort, Purdue expert says WEST LAFAYETTE — Life moves slowly during the dog days of August and, coincidentally, it’s a time when lawns need little maintenance, according to Zac Reicher, Extension turfgrass specialist at Purdue University. ELYSIA Although there is less RODGERS to be done, the yard work never disappears completely. Here are Reicher’s recommendations for what needs to be done for a healthy lawn in August:

that contains about 50 percent slow-release nitrogen. This is usually in a form such as sulfur or polymer-coated urea, urea formaldehyde, or natural organics. “Even if you do nothing else for your lawn other than mow it, consider applying fertilizer in September,” Reicher said. “You’ll be surprised at the results this fall and next spring.“


To properly water a lawn, wet the upper 4 to 6 inches of the soil during each irrigation. Watering early in the morning (between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m.) is most beneficial to the lawn and most efficient in terms of water use, Reicher said. Do not repeat the watering until the grass shows signs of drying Fertilization out, such as an off-green or August is not a good month blue color, or wilting. to apply fertilizer, but it is a If the lawn is not watered, good month to head to the the turf will go dormant nursery or hardware store to and turn brown during dry buy fertilizer for September. periods.

help ensure survival of the grass.“ On dormant lawns, Reicher said, it is important to avoid walking on the grass, because this may kill it. Also, a homeowner must decide whether to let the lawn go dormant or not. “Don’t let your lawn turn brown, and then water to turn it green, and then let it turn brown again,” Reicher said. “Either water enough to keep the lawn green or let it go dormant.”

Mowing In some parts of Indiana, ample rains have fallen and lawns continue to grow at a moderate pace, Reicher said. In these areas, it is important to mow regularly so not more than one third of the grass leaf is cut at any one mowing. “You are better off mowing too frequently than not frequently enough,” Reicher says. In areas that have received too little rain, Reicher said, it is important to not mow turfgrass that is suffering from drought stress. “If you do, it will damage the crowns of turf plants and leave brown mower tracks well after the lawn greens up again,” he said. During the hot summer days, it is best not to mow in the mid-afternoon when the lawn might be under drought stress. Rather, wait and mow

in the early evening or early morning during cool temperatures, which will minimize the stress on the turf.

Grub Control Grub damage often occurs in lawns in August, and most commonly it is found in lawns or areas that have had grub damage in the past. The small, white grubs are the larvae of Japanese beetles and masked chafers. If the lawn has more than four to six grubs per square foot, consider applying an insecticide in early August. Be sure to water thoroughly after application to move the insecticide down to the grubs. Reicher said there is also a nonchemical alternative to controlling the grubs. “If you find grubs but don’t want to apply an insecticide, irrigate more frequently to help the turfgrass outgrow the damage. This should minimize the damage but probably won’t eliminate it,” he said. More lawn and turf information, including weekly updates by Purdue turf experts, can be found on the Internet at http://purdueturftips.blogspot. com/.

California case on insurance could pact nation



steer judge, Chris Mullinix. Brumbaugh was also recognized at the 2013 Indiana State Fair celebration awards ceremony, presented by Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance, on Aug. 10, where he received a check fo $10,000. Teegan is a nine-year 4-H member and a senior at Churubusco High School where he is active in FFA and football.

Care Act, which will require hundreds of thousands of field workers to be covered by health insurance. And while the requirement to cover workers was recently delayed until 2015, the contractors, who provide farmers with armies of field workers, say they are already preparing for the potential cost, inconvenience, and liability the new law will bring to their business, which typically operates on a slender profit margin. “I’ve been to at least a dozen seminars on the Affordable Care Act since February,” said Chuck Herrin, owner of Sunrise Farm Labor, a contractor based here. “If you don’t take the right approach, you’re wiped out.” The effects of the new law could be profound. Insurance brokers and health providers familiar with California’s $43.5 billion agricultural industry estimate that meeting the law’s minimum health plan will cost about $1 per hour per employee worked in the field. “Everybody is afraid of the cost,” said J. Edward McClements, Jr., a senior vice president at Barkley Insurance and Risk Management, based in Oxnard, about 60 miles west of Los Angeles. “It’s difficult when you’ve got 1,000 workers who’ve never had health

insurance before, to get an idea of what their costs will be.” The concern is felt from vineyards in Napa County to the almond orchards outside Coalinga, a Central Valley town best known for its state prison and mental hospital. Farm labor contractors generally rely on a 2 percent profit, and they say they will have to pass the added health care costs required by the new law on to growers. Mr. Herrin, who can employ up to 2,000 farmworkers — many of them long-time employees — has been warning his customers of the coming price increase due to health insurance costs. “It’s made for some heated battles,” Mr. Herrin said, of his talks with growers who include his father-in-law, the owner of a Central Valley farm. Some farmers seem resigned to higher labor costs, and to the fact that that increase will be passed on to the consumers of everything from leafy greens to crunchy nuts. “That cost is going to be borne by us at the end of the day,” said Scott Deardorff, a partner at Oxnard-based Deardorff Family Farms, which grows strawberries, cauliflower and chard, among other salad bar staples. Across the country,

employers in many other kinds of businesses are devising strategies to comply with or, in some cases, sidestep a new requirement to provide insurance for those who work 30 hours or more. Some are breaking their businesses into smaller companies, for instance, or even laying off workers. Some companies plan to shift workers to part-time status. But in the vast, fertile fields of California’s Central Valley, farmers and the contractors who supply them with work crews must prune, pick and pack produce when it is ready, nearly year round. Ripe cantaloupe will not wait. “You can’t put your ag workers on a 28-hour work week like Starbucks, Denny’s and Wal-Mart are considering,” said Mr. McClements. California farmers produce half of all fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in the nation, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture. But Guadalupe Sandoval, executive director of the California Farm Labor Contractor Association, said the state’s farmers must compete for supermarket shelf space against agricultural producers worldwide, most of whom are not paying for worker health care.



Briefs • Manning’s gender transition sets up legal showdown BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Bradley Manning is the first transgender military inmate to ask for hormone treatments, officials say, a request that could lead to a legal showdown over how — and if — the soldier convicted in the WikiLeaks case will be allowed to live as a female behind bars. Current Pentagon policy dictates that transgender soldiers are not allowed to serve, and Manning won’t be discharged until being released from prison and all appeals are exhausted. Furthermore, the military does not allow soldiers to undergo hormone treatments while in the all-male prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. — though this is the first time officials have heard of a request for such treatment, said Maria Tolleson, a spokeswoman with the Army Medical Command in Arlington, Va. “We’re just now dealing with the issue,” she said, adding it would be premature to say there has been any movement toward offering the care to all transgender inmates as a result of Manning’s case.

Russia to Syria: Cooperate with U.N. BEIRUT (AP) — Russia on Friday added its diplomatic weight to demands for a swift probe into an alleged chemical weapons attack that has injected new vigor into calls for international military action in Syria’s civil war. The U.S., Britain, France and other countries have pressed for a team of United Nations inspectors already in Syria to be granted immediate access to the sites of Wednesday’s purported gas attack that activists say killed more than 130 people. In an attempt to push things along, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is

dispatching his disarmament chief to Damascus to press President Bashar Assad’s regime to agree to an investigation. Timing is vital, experts say, because the more time passes, the harder it is to detect what chemicals — if any — were used. Immediate access also would allow inspectors to collect blood and soil samples themselves and safeguard the chain of custody of and the integrity of the investigation. But in the chaos and violence of Syria’s civil war, safe passage to the eastern Damascus suburbs

in question would be difficult. That was made clear on Friday, as government artillery on the Qassioun plateau overlooking Damascus pounded those suburbs in the heaviest strikes in days. Booms from the artillery echoed over the city every few minutes, along with several rounds of rocket fire that raised flashes of light from the suburbs. At times, three or four plumes of smoke could be seen billowing on the horizon. Syrian opposition figures and activists have reported death tolls from Wednesday’s attack ranging from

Lawyers settle Deen lawsuit

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Lawyers signed a deal Friday to drop a discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuit against celebrity cook Paula Deen, who was dropped by the Food Deen Network and other business partners after she said under oath that she had used racial slurs in the past. A document filed in U.S. District Court in Savannah said both sides agreed to drop the lawsuit “without any award of costs or fees to any party.” No other details of the agreement were released. The judge in the case had not signed an order to finalize the dismissal. Former employee Lisa Jackson last year sued Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers, saying she suffered from sexual harassment and racially offensive talk and employment practices that were unfair to black workers during her five years as a manager of Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House.

Lovato set for ‘Glee’ appearances NEW YORK (AP) — Demi Lovato is taking her big voice to “Glee.” The 21-year-old singer-actress will appear in multiple episodes of the show’s upcoming fifth season, her publicist Lovato confirmed Friday. “Glee” star Lea Michele tweeted Thursday that she was excited that two of her “very best friends” — Lovato and Broadway vet Phoebe Strole — would appear on the Fox show, and thanked creator Ryan Murphy for making it happen.

136 to 1,300. If confirmed, even the most conservative tally would make it the deadliest alleged chemical attack in Syria’s civil war. The Assad regime has denied the allegations, calling them “absolutely baseless” and accusing the opposition of staging the whole affair to smear the government and provoke outside intervention. Russia, which is a close ally of Damascus and its most powerful protector on the international stage, also has suggested the opposition of staging the attack to discredit the regime. But on Friday, Moscow also called

on both sides of the conflict to facilitate an investigation. “Russia immediately contacted the Syrian government asking them to cooperate with U.N. experts,” the Foreign Ministry in Moscow said in a statement. “It is now a matter for the opposition, which should guarantee safe access of the mission to the supposed location of the incident.” In Istanbul, Syria’s main Western-backed opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, insisted it could guarantee the inspectors’ safety in the territory it holds.

Sectarian clashes in Pakistan kill 5 ISLAMABAD (AP) — Members of a radical Sunni Muslim group clashed Friday with minority Shiites in central Pakistan, fighting that killed five, police said. The clashes between the Ahle Sunnat Waljamaat members and the Shiites happened in the town of Bhakkar in Punjab province, police official Abdullah Khan said. The conflict followed a protest rally held by the Sunnis after one of their members was gunned down while closing his shop. People were killed on both sides, Khan said.

Egypt’s pro-Morsi rallies smaller CAIRO (AP) — Supporters of Egypt’s deposed president, who once overwhelmed cities in the hundreds of thousands, changed tactics Friday by demonstrating in scattered, small rallies that avoided confronting a heavy military deployment waiting for them across the country. The low turnout signaled the strain on ousted leader Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, as it has trouble drawing large numbers of supporters and faces an increasingly skeptical Egyptian public wary of more bloodshed like that which followed the July 3 military coup that overthrew him. Meanwhile, an intense security crackdown by the military-backed interim government has rounded up much of its leadership. The Brotherhood has “committed a strategic error last week by mixing peaceful

protests with armed clashes with civilians,” said Abdullah el-Sinawi, an Egyptian newspaper columnist and analyst. “Many supporters are now staying away fearing that new civilian-on-civilian clashes will erupt.” Morsi supporters dubbed the day the “Friday of Martyrs,” in reference to the several hundred people that died in clashes with Egypt’s military during raids on street camps this month. Last Friday, vigilantes at neighborhood checkpoints battled Morsi supporters across the capital in unprecedented clashes between residents that killed more than 170 people, including dozens of police officers. Ahead of the protests, soldiers in armored personnel carriers and tanks deployed early Friday across the country on major roads and plazas to stop demonstrators from gathering. But after Friday prayers, Cairo and

the rest of Egypt did not see massive crowds on the streets. Instead, small groups of Islamists in the hundreds chanted against the military and held up posters of Morsi on side streets and outside neighborhood mosques. Thousands marched through the streets of Cairo’s Nasr City district. Some chanted: “We are willing to sacrifice our lives” and “We promise the martyrs that we will end military rule.” Mohamed Ahmed, a Morsi supporter, insisted the movement against what the Brotherhood calls an “illegitimate” coup would continue. “Everybody knows there could be a bloodbath. But as long as we are fighting for our rights, with God’s will, we will win,” he said as he joined protesters gathering outside a mosque following prayers in Giza, a satellite city of Cairo and home to the famous Pyramids.

Microsoft CEO to retire in 12 months NEW YORK (AP) — Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, who took over the helm of the world’s largest software company from founder Bill Gates, will retire within the next 12 months. Microsoft Ballmer Corp. did not name a successor. The company said it is forming a search committee, which will include Gates, and Ballmer will stay on until a replacement is found. “There is never a perfect time for this type of transition, but now is the right time,” Ballmer said in a statement released by the Redmond, Wash., company. Microsoft shares shot up 8 percent in morning trading following the news. It’s been less than two months since Microsoft announced a sweeping reorganization of its business in an attempt to reignite competition with fastermoving rivals such as Apple and Google. Response to the newest version of Microsoft’s flagship Windows operating system has been lukewarm.

And Microsoft, along with other companies that thrived in the era of personal computers, are scrambling to transform their businesses as people come to rely more and more on smartphones and tablets. In his statement, Ballmer noted that the company is moving in a new direction and needs a CEO that will be there for the longer term. Microsoft, he added, “has

all its best days ahead.” Ballmer, 57, met Microsoft founder Bill Gates in 1973 while they were living down a dormitory hall from each other at Harvard University. He joined Microsoft in 1980 to bring some business discipline and salesmanship to a company that had just landed a contract to supply an operating system for a personal computer that IBM would release in 1981.

8th Annual

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. (AP) — The U.S. soldier who massacred 16 Afghan civilians last year in one of the worst atrocities of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars was sentenced Friday to life in prison with no chance of parole — the most severe sentence possible, but one that left surviving victims and relatives of the dead deeply unsatisfied. “We wanted this murderer to be executed,” said Hajji Mohammad Wazir, who lost 11 family members in the attack by Staff Sgt. Robert Bales. “We were brought all the way from Afghanistan to see if justice would be served. Not our way — justice was served the American way.” Bales, 40, pleaded guilty in June in a deal to avoid the death penalty for his March 11, 2012, raids near his remote outpost in Kandahar province, when he stalked through mud-walled compounds and shot 22 people — 17 of them women and children. Some screamed for mercy, while others didn’t even have a chance to get out of bed. The soldier showed no emotion as the sentence was announced at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, south of Seattle. His mother, sitting in the front row of the court, bowed her head, rocked in her seat, and wept. An interpreter flashed a thumbs-up sign to a row of Afghan villagers who were either wounded or lost family members in the March 11, 2012, attacks. “I saw his mother trying to cry, but at least she can go visit him,” Hajji Mohammad Naim, who was shot in the neck, said after the sentencing. “What about us? Our family members are actually 6 feet under.”

The villagers, who traveled nearly 7,000 miles to testify against Bales, spoke with reporters and asked through an interpreter what it would be like for someone to break into American homes and slaughter their families. Bales never offered an explanation for why he armed himself with a 9 mm pistol and an M-4 rifle and left his post on the killing mission, but he apologized on the witness stand Thursday and described the slaughter as an “act of cowardice, behind a mask of fear, bulls—- and bravado.” The six-member jury weighing whether he would be eligible for parole after 20 years took about 90 minutes to decide the case in favor of prosecutors who described Bales as a “man of no moral compass.” “In just a few short hours, Sgt. Bales wiped out generations,” Lt. Col. Jay Morse told the jury in his closing argument. “Sgt. Bales dares to ask you for mercy when he has shown none.” A commanding general overseeing the court-martial has the option of reducing the sentence to life with the possibility of parole. Defense attorney Emma Scanlan argued for the lighter sentence, begging jurors to consider her client’s prior life and years of good military service and suggested he snapped under the weight of his fourth combat deployment. She read from a letter Bales sent to his two children 10 weeks before the killing: “The children here are a lot like you. They like to eat candy and play soccer. They all know me because I juggle rocks for them.” “These aren’t the words of a cold-blooded murderer,” Scanlan said.

Your brain recognizes sunrise and sends signals throughout your body ASK that prepares DOCTOR K. it to awaken and start functioning. Dr. Anthony Sunset does the opposite: hours Komaroff Aaftfew er sunset, your body’s inner clock starts to power down. In teenagers, the body clock is somewhat different from what it will be when they become adults. The clock starts to power

down the body at a later hour, and it also starts to power up the body at a later hour. That’s why so many teens have trouble waking up in the morning. So your son’s body clock naturally causes him to fall asleep later and to get up later. When your son stays up even later than his body clock wants him to, to finish homework or to chat with his friends on Facebook, he is exaggerating the natural time shift of his body clock. On top of that, by sleeping late on weekends, your son is exaggerating that time shift even further. He is experiencing the equivalent of a five-hour jet lag when it’s time to get up on Monday morning. The alarm clock may be saying 6 a.m., but his inner clock is reading 1 a.m. This will make it much harder for your teen to wake up, and to concentrate during the first hours at

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: My teenage son likes to sleep in on weekends, often until noon. Is that OK? DEAR READER: I’ve been asked this question by nearly every parent of teenagers I know. I checked with my Harvard Medical School colleague, pediatrician Dennis Rosen, who confirmed what I’ve been saying: Letting your son sleep in on weekends isn’t doing him any favors. Teenagers should get nine hours of sleep per night. Most teens don’t, especially during the school week. Instead, they stay up late to finish school work, take part in extracurricular activities and spend time with friends. As a result, they struggle to wake up on time for school. A few days of this, and they’ve built up a significant sleep deficit. Sleeping late on Saturday and Sunday may fill that

this, but I need some advice because the kids are obviously not going away. Will they grow out of this? It’s making me question if I can remain in the relationship. — BOTHERED IN BUFFALO DEAR BOTHERED: You need an attitude adjustment. I don’t think you realize what a compliment it is that the children compete for your attention DEAR and want to ABBY be close to you. A way to deal with could be Jeanne Phillips this to arrange to have one-on-one time with EACH child while your

school. Over time, it can also significantly affect his mood. As far as possible on weekends, try not to let your son sleep in more than an hour beyond his usual wake-up time. Here are some things you can do to get your teen out of bed: • Turn on all the lights in the bedroom and open the shades and curtains. Nothing says “wake up” more than bright light. • Set an alarm clock across the room and out of reach from your son’s bed. • Plan a morning outing with him. In addition, don’t let him nap during the day. Napping will make it harder for him to fall asleep at night, which will make it harder to wake up the next morning. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is
