KENDALLVILLE — “I’m thrilled. They did a beautiful job.” Mike Cearbaugh of Orland couldn’t stop smiling while looking over his canary yellow 1930 Ford Model A hot rod parked in the Impact Institute Auto Body and Repair Shop on East Dowling Street this week. He brought it back to show it again to the Impact Institute’s Auto Body and Repair program students, who worked on it last year, and the new students in the course. He wanted to thank everyone again. Instructor Jose Gallo praised his students for their prep work and paint job on the historic car. “They worked very hard on
this. Some came in on Saturdays. I’m proud of them,” Gallo said. Cearbaugh, who describes himself as a car buff, acquired the Model A in 1991 and worked on restoring it with his neighbor, Al Henderson off and on in recent years. He’s also working on a 1953 Ford flatbed truck and a 1952 Ford pickup truck. “All model A’s coming off the Ford assembly line in those days were black,” he said. Cearbaugh wanted a more flashy hot-rod look with painted flames that was popular in the 1950s. He thought about taking his car to a professional painter, but then heard about the Impact Institute’s auto body and repair program. “A friend of mine’s grandson
“I brought it over part by part after we had restored them, and the kids went to work.” Mike Cearbaugh Hot rod owner
• was taking a class and told me about it,” he said. Cearbaugh discussed his car’s needs with the instructors and decided to trust the students with his hot rod. SEE HOT ROD, PAGE A10

GENEVA (AP) — The top diplomats from the United States and Russia raised hopes Friday for reviving broad talks to end the long and deadly Syrian civil war, even as they struggled to deal with the most notorious part — the use of chemical weapons on civilians. The path to a U.N. resolution on securing those weapons seemed at least somewhat clearer, with the U.S. indicating it could accept an enforcement measure that didn’t threaten military retribution. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, leading talks in Geneva to defuse the crisis, both made clear that any prospects for restarting broad peace negotiations depended on first settling the standoff over the chemical weapons. They were to meet again Saturday. The U.S. has been seeking a U.N. Security Council resolution to solidify the turnover that Syrian President Bashar Assad has promised, including consequences if he doesn’t follow through. Addressing a difficult sticking point, administration officials said Friday that President Barack Obama was open to a resolution that did not include military force as a punishment, given that Russia would be all but certain to veto any measure including such a penalty. Even without a military trigger included in a U.N. resolution, the officials said Obama would retain the authority to order U.S. air strikes against Syria. SEE TALKS, PAGE A10

BUTLER — A Butler man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of possession of items to produce methamphetamine, police said. Jennings A. Rowe, 48, of the 200 block of Walnut Street, has been charged with possession of two or more methamphetamine precursors with the intent to manufacture within 1,000 feet of a park or school, a Class C felony. Butler Police Chief Jim Nichols said Detective Matthew Tamez was on patrol around 1 p.m. Thursday when Tamez detected an odor commonly associated with the production of methamphetamine. “He was able to narrow the odor down to a house located in the 200 block of Walnut Street,” Nichols said. “Officers received permission to search the residence and in doing so, they located precursors utilized for manufacturing methamphetamine.” Rowe posted $3,000 bond to be released at 11:50 p.m. Thursday, according to DeKalb County Jail records. Nichols praised his officers for their proactive efforts fighting against methamphetamine.

Chip sealing planned for S.R. 4 ASHLEY — The Indiana Department of Transportation will conduct chip-and-seal work on S.R. 4 starting Monday. The work will take place between S.R. 327 and the town of Ashley, weather permitting, an INDOT news release said. During the operation, traffic will be reduced to one lane, controlled by flaggers. Crews will be present during daytime hours, and a reduced speed limit of 45 mph will be in effect. The project depends on dry weather and may be delayed if conditions are not adequate. The chip-and-seal process consists of distributing a liquid asphalt
emulsion on the roadway and covering it with crushed stone to provide a new wearing surface. Once the asphalt has cured, any excess chips left on the roadway are swept from the surface, the news release said. INDOT said drivers should exercise caution in this area during the project. Loose stone will be present on the roadway during the initial cure of the asphalt and can damage windshields and paint on vehicles that may be following each other too closely, the news release said. INDOT recommends that when traveling on a recently chip-sealed road, drivers should slow down and allow additional space between vehicles.
Chip sealing extends the life of a roadway by protecting it from moisture, ultraviolet degradation and any other damaging exposures. In addition to sealing the pavement, chip seal applications re-establish surface friction — improving safety for drivers, the news release said. Of the pavement preservation methods employed by the state, chip sealing is perhaps the most cost-effective, the news release said. Studies show that every $1 invested in chip-seal operations saves $6 to $14 in future roadway costs. For information, people may contact the Fort Wayne District of INDOT toll-free at 866-227-3555.

GARRETT — As of 3:50 p.m. Friday, power was restored to 150 Indiana Michigan Power customers south and west of Garrett. The outage began at 6:45 a.m. Thursday due to a transformer system breakdown, said Erica Putt, I&M communications representative. At that time, some 450 customers were affected. Power was restored to about 300 customers through a systems cooperation with REMC later in the day, according to Putt. Work continued through the night Thursday to install a temporary transformer, but it failed, she said. Putt said all of the customers have their service restored, and the 300 who were switched through REMC experienced a brief outage before bringing them back online Friday afternoon. Putt said the outage was not related to a one-hour “drop power to circuit order” to I&M earlier in the week, affecting customers on Cook and Lima roads on the north side of Fort Wayne. That outage was related to congestion on the transmission system caused by high electricity demands, I&M sources said.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks rose broadly Friday, giving the Dow Jones industrial average its best week since January. The market got a lift from two economic reports, one showing that inflation remained tame in August and the other showing that Americans spent more at stores last month. The Dow rose 75.42 points, or 0.5 percent, to 15,376.06. The index closed up three percent for the week, its best five-day performance since the week ending Jan. 4. Intel led the Dow higher. Analysts at Jefferies & Co. said Intel may be able to increase its sales with power-efficient chips. Intel rose 81 cents, or 3.6 percent, to $23.44. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 4.57 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,687.99. The Nasdaq composite index rose 6.22 points, or 0.2 percent, to 3,722.18. Traders had a few economic reports to work through. Americans increased their spending modestly in August, roughly
0.2 percent, the Commerce Department reported, however that was half of what economists expected. The sales report was mixed. Shoppers spent more on cars, electronics and furniture, but they didn’t buy much else. Last month, several retail chains including Nordstrom, Macy’s and Wal-Mart cut their profit forecasts for the year. The government also reported that wholesale prices rose 0.3 percent last month. Over the past year, prices have only gained 1.4 percent, a sign that inflation has remains modest. One thing driving wholesale prices higher was energy, which spiked as tensions with Syria and the U.S. escalated. Trading was light as Wall Street headed into the weekend and the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. Investors were looking ahead to the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting on Sept. 17-18, when the central bank is expected to decide the future of its bond-buying program.
Teachers strike in Mexico City MEXICO CITY (AP) — Thousands of striking teachers seized control of the historic heart of Mexico City on Friday, blockading the Zocalo plaza armed with metal pipes and wooden clubs as riot police flooded the area for what could be an ugly confrontation culminating weeks of protests against an education reform. The teachers used steel grates and plastic traffic dividers to block the streets leading into the Zocalo, home to the Metropolitan Cathedral, Templo Mayor and National Palace, some of the city’s best-known tourist attractions. Hundreds of Mexico City and federal riot police massed on the other sides of the barriers. Mexico’s government has promised that Independence Day celebrations, including the traditional presidential shout of independence from a balcony overlooking the square, will take place there Sunday and Monday. The teachers, many veterans of battles with police in the
poor southern states where they live, are promising not to move from the square where they have camped out for weeks, launching a string of disruptive marches around the city. Manuel Mondragon, the head of the federal police, warned on national television that police would move in at 4 p.m. local time. One of the heads of the teachers’ union organizing the protests said organizers were still deciding what to do, but protesters on the street said they were preparing for battle. The teachers have disrupted the center of one of the world’s largest cities at least 15 times over the last two months decrying a plan that aims to break union control of Mexico’s dysfunctional education system. President Enrique Pena Nieto dashed the teachers’ hopes of blocking the overhaul when he signed the new system into law Tuesday. On Wednesday, the protests began turning violent.

Tractors changed farms, and America’s way of life Growing up, my dad and grandfather almost always had draft horses or mules on their farms. Since I left home, my mom and dad have gotten back into draft horses a lot more. Dad uses them for wagon rides and doing chores around the farm, from hauling hay out to ELYSIA animals to logging RODGERS trees out of the woods. Even though we do have a tractor, it is always fun watching how farming was done “in the old days.” The use of horses is actually making a bit of a comeback lately, as people are looking at slowing things down. While horses are wonderful work animals, sometimes you just need the power from a tractor. David Mas Masumoto, writer of “Special to The Bee,” wrote the following article
about the history of the tractor: Early in the 1900s, Henry Ford first introduced the Fordson, a modern tractor with a smaller gas-powered engine. The Model F was farmer-friendly, if the average farmer was willing to tolerate the unbearable engine heat and the occasional motor catching on fire. Driven by efficiency, gradually the Fordson was improved. It still required new inputs of gas and oil and used resources of steel and later rubber, but it could outperform the poor old horse. Imagine millions of farmers, shaking their heads and saying, “Ain’t gonna work.” They then returned to their farm with Jake or Betty, their loyal and steady team of horses or mules. They could not foresee the changes coming. They didn’t understand Ford’s arrogant yet visionary comment: Ask farmers what they want and they would have said a faster horse. The tractor triggered a massive change in farm size. In 1900, farmers typically
worked about 100 acres; by 1960 it was 300 acres (and today it’s over 400 acres). Some claim the push for productivity forced farmers to keep expanding in a never-ending race. Productivity in agriculture has resulted in cheaper and cheaper food, the efficiencies brought by the tractor as well as other innovations and equipment, made food more available than ever before. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the percent of our annual income spent on food has continually plummeted. In 1900, when horses ruled our farmlands, Americans spent 43 percent of their income on food. By 1950, it had dropped to 30 percent, and today it’s less than 9 percent. Tractors rule, horses drool. American farms changed in another significant way: human labor was no longer needed and the farm population dramatically shifted. In 1900, 41 percent of America claimed to be farmers and 60 percent of Americans lived in rural areas. By 1960 (as
tractors dominated agriculture), the number of farmers had collapsed to only 8 percent, and rural communities shrank to 30 percent. Today, less than 2 percent acknowledge they’re farmers, and rural America is about one-fifth of the population. But were millions of workers displaced or freed? Other than periods of the Great Depression and images from “The Grapes of Wrath,” this migration off the farm did not necessarily include economic refugees who were poor, out of work, and fleeing the terror of the tractors that pushed humans off the land. For many, it was an escape from the hard physical work of farming. Industrial America grew at precisely the same moment in our nation’s history, absorbing this labor force. Commerce benefitted from a new set of skilled hands, launching the rise of the urban middle class. The tractor, far from being a mechanical demon, was seen as a savior: freeing millions from the torture of farm labor and isolated rural life.
What price are we paying for cheap food? Major medical problems today are associated with the current dietary opportunity of inexpensive processed food that Americans stuff themselves with. Indirectly, can obesity and diabetes somehow be connected with the tractor and the rise of mass-produced commodities in search of a mouth to feed? Or is this all a moot point, long after the horse left the barn? And are bigger farms necessarily always better? Some will claim that environmental bill has yet to be paid by large-scale agriculture. In our valley, some communities cannot drink water from their wells, as excess nitrates, often from agriculture, have polluted groundwater supplies. Ironically, the loss of people on the farm also meant a loss of voters supporting agricultural policy. We forget that tractors also displaced rural political clout. Politically, the farm vote really doesn’t count anymore.
In the last election, the failure of controversial Proposition 37 – about labeling GMOs (generically modified organisms) – was defeated by the urban vote. More and more, policy decisions for agriculture are determined by “city folks.” It’s not about politics, it’s geography. I have a number of tractors on our farm. They don’t require daily feeding and can work for hours and hours, pulling with ease heavy equipment through my fields. Daily, my body thanks the arrival of tractors. But they aren’t alive, and I find little comfort in their cold metal and the smell of diesel. So when I look at the horse tack hanging in my old barn, I also see more than the rise of tractor power. I can’t help but see the consequences that innovation brings.

Soybean outlook rises after USDA downgrades crop CHICAGO —Goldman Sachs Group Inc. raised its outlook for U.S. soybean prices in the next three and six months after a government report yesterday showed U.S. production will be reduced due to dry weather. Soybeans may be $12.50 a bushel in three months and $11.50 in six months, below current price levels while above the bank’s previous outlook of $10.50 a bushel, Goldman analysts including Damien Courvalin wrote in an e-mailed report today. The U.S. Department of Agriculture lowered its forecast for the U.S. harvest to 3.149 billion bushels yesterday, its second cut in as many months and 3.3 percent less than expected in August. “Uncertainty over the size of the U.S. corn and especially soybean crops remain unusually high for this time of year given the volatility and extremes in planting and growing weather across the Midwest,” Courvalin wrote. The USDA may lower its outlook for U.S. yields again in its October report, he said. Soybeans for November delivery rallied 2.8 percent Thursday on the Chicago Board of Trade, before falling as much as 0.7 percent Friday to $13.8675 a bushel. The most-active contract has jumped 20 percent since reaching a 19-month low in August as heat and dry weather intensified in U.S. growing areas.
Purdue sees lower grain prices ahead BY DAVE KURTZ email@example.com
AUBURN — After three years of record income, U.S. farmers can expect more moderate profits in 2014, a Purdue expert said Friday. Corinne Alexander. an agricultural economist, spoke to local farmers by Internet from the Purdue campus. A half-dozen farmers attended at the Extension office in downtown Auburn. Lower grain prices will be a leading cause of reduced farm income, Alexander said. After a drought pushed corn prices to $6.90 per bushel last year, Purdue is predicting a range of $4.40 to $5.20 per bushel for this year’s crop — the lowest prices since 2009-2010. “We have to rebuild usage, stimulate the users to use a lot more corn, because there’s a lot more corn available,” Alexander said. However, she said, “There’s still a lot of question marks” about the corn crop. It looked “fantastic” in early August, but hot, dry weather has set
in since then. Farmers at the seminar agreed that lack of rain has hurt the quality of crops — especially soybeans. One said his fields have not felt a good rain since the first week of July. This week’s rain came too late to be of much benefit, the farmers added. Alexander’s advice said farmers could expect to gain 45 cents per bushel by storing their corn crop for sale next July. “As I go around the state of Indiana, I see a lot of new grain bins that can be filled … to capture those storage returns,” she said. Purdue is forecasting an average soybean yield of 41.2 bushels per acre, which is being revised downward because major soybeangrowing areas are experiencing drought. U.S. soybean production is forecast at 3.15 billion bushels, the fourth-largest crop on record, up from 3 billion last year. Purdue is predicting a soybean price of $12.50 per bushel, equal to two years
ago, but down from $14.40 last year. However, the price still could reach the $13.50 to $14 range. “The hot, dry weather this August really pushed soybean prices higher,” Alexander said. She advised selling soybeans before or at harvest, or storing only 30-120 days, to avoid falling prices due to a large South American crop. She said Brazil could surpass U.S. soybean production for the first time in 2014. Alexander said the cost of planting grain should be lower next year. She predicted it will cost $422 per acre to plant corn, down 9 percent, chiefly because fertilizer prices will drop by 22 percent. The forecast predicts $225 per acre to plant soybeans, down from $239 last year. After three years with very high feed costs, it will be time for livestock producers to take advantage of lower feed prices, Alexander said. All categories of livestock production are expected to increase except beef, which
is being hampered by drought in the west. “The current size of the U.S. cattle herd is back to a level we have not seen since 1952,” Alexander said. Purdue is expecting hog prices to stay profitable, possibly declining to break-even by late 2014. The soaring price of average Indiana farm land set a record at nearly $7,500 per acre this year, Alexander reported. It has risen from $4,240 in 2008 and $5,488 in 2011. With lower crop prices, Purdue expects values to start leveling or declining. “In general, I hear a lot of people pessimistic about farmland values,” she said. Average Indiana land rental also set a new record of $229 per acre this year. Alexander said she expects little change for 2014, but an adjustment to new realities in 2015-2016. One farmer at the session said he regularly attends the annual Purdue outlook meetings, “and they have been pretty close to being right.”

High Risk Factors on Farms The following factors may increase risk of injuryor illness for farm workers: • Age – Injury rates are highest among children age 15 and under and adults over 65. • Equipment and Machinery – Most farm accidents and fatalities involve machinery. Proper machine guarding and doing equipment maintenance according to manufacturers’ recommendations can help prevent accidents. • Protective Equipment – Using protective equipment, such as seat belts on tractors, and personal protective equipment (such as safety gloves, coveralls, boots, hats,
aprons, goggles, face shields) could signiﬁcantly reduce farming injuries. • Medical Care – Hospitals and emergency medical care are typically not readily accessible in rural areas near farms.
How You Can Improve Farm Safety You can start by increasing your awareness of farm-

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Taliban attacked a U.S. Consulate in western Afghanistan with car bombs and guns on Friday, killing at least four Afghans but failing to enter the compound or hurt any Americans. The attack in the city of Herat underscored concerns about an insurgency that shows no signs of letting up as U.S.-led troops reduce their presence ahead of a full withdrawal next year. Within hours of the assault, the U.S. temporarily evacuated many of its consular personnel to the embassy in Kabul, 650 kilometers (400 miles) to the east. Herat lies near Afghanistan’s border with Iran and is considered one of the safer cities in the country, with a strong Iranian influence. Friday’s attack highlighted the Taliban’s reach: The militants once concentrated their activities in the east and the south, but in recent years have demonstrated an ability to strike with more frequency
in the once-peaceful north and west. In a phone call, Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi took responsibility for the assault. An interpreter and three members of the Afghan security forces were killed, said U.S. State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf. Seven militants, including two drivers of explosives-laden vehicles, also died, according to Gen. Rahmatullah Safi, Herat province’s chief of police. At least 17 people were wounded, said Herat hospital official Sayednaim Alemi. The attack began about 6 a.m. when militants in an SUV and a van set off their explosives while others on foot fired on Afghan security forces guarding the Consulate, Safi said. He said the militants were not able to breach the compound, where Americans live and work. Harf said the attackers fired rocket propelled grenades and that the
compound’s front gate was extensively damaged in one of the bombings. Footage broadcast on Afghanistan’s Tolo television network showed Afghan police dragging away a badly bloodied man from the scene. Rubble and twisted pieces of metal lay strewn in a seemingly wide area near the consulate. American security personnel were among those responding to the attack, Harf said. Robert Hilton, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, said “all consulate personnel are safe and accounted for.” Most of the staff were temporarily relocated to the capital, but some essential personnel stayed in Herat, he said. U.S. and other foreign missions are attractive targets for militants in Afghanistan, but their high walls and strict security also make them difficult to penetrate. The militants also often carry out complex attacks that include suicide car bombers and fighters on foot.

tions publicly. U.N. inspectors prepared to turn in their own poison gas report this weekend, sure to be an important basis for any further action. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he expected “an overwhelming report” that chemical weapons were indeed used on the outskirts of Damascus on Aug. 21. The chief inspector, Ake Sellstrom, told The Associated Press that he would deliver his report to the secretary-general in New York this weekend. In Geneva, meanwhile, Kerry and Lavrov have disclosed little since their meetings began Thursday with Kerry’s dismissal of Assad’s offer to begin by turning over information, not weapons, starting weeks from now after signing an international convention. A U.S. official said the talks were at a “pivotal
point” and would continue Saturday morning. Some progress has been made on how to account for Syria’s chemical weapons inventory, the official said, adding that the U.S. and Russia also had narrowed their differences over what each country believes to be the size of the Syrian stockpiles. Kerry and Lavrov also met with U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi about the potential for a new peace conference in the Swiss city. Kerry said he, Lavrov and Brahimi agreed to meet around Sept. 28 on the sidelines of the annual U.N. General Assembly meetings in New York. “We are committed to try to work together, beginning with this initiative on the chemical weapons, in hopes that those efforts could pay off and bring peace and stability to a war-torn part of the world,” he said.
Purdue on building boom TALKS: Obama calls for verifiable weapons deal
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue University officials are moving ahead with plans for spending about $150 million to renovate several engineering buildings and construct a news classroom and library building. The Purdue trustees’ facilities committee on Thursday endorsed the projects. If approved by the full board, work could begin next year and last into 2018. Plans call for $70 million in renovations for existing engineering buildings as Purdue looks to add 700
students and 200 faculty members to its engineering programs in the coming years. The facilities will make Purdue more appealing to potential new professors, Purdue Provost Tim Sands told the Journal & Courier (http://on.jconline. com/162lOL5 ). “Most of the space we’re talking about renovating here you would not want to show a potential faculty member,” Sands said. “It will make a difference.” Nearly $80 million would be spent on the Active Learning Center, which
would include classrooms designed for greater use of technology and space to consolidate six science libraries. It would be built on the site of the aging Engineering Administration Building and the vacant heating and power north building, both of which are to be demolished. Facilities committee chairman Gary Lehman said the building will help meet the changing needs of students and professors. Both projects advance to consideration by the full Board of Trustees on Sept. 27.
At the White House, Obama said any agreement to remove Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile “needs to be verifiable and enforceable.” As for possible U.N. action, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, “We are not going to prejudge the outcome of negotiations that are just beginning in New York. The U.S. has been clear that for any effort to be credible it must be verifiable and include consequences for noncompliance.” Senior administration officials also outlined for the first time a timetable for a diplomatic resolution of the issue of the weapons, saying the U.S. will know within a few weeks whether a path is workable. The officials spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the internal delibera-
Alcohol sales licenses up for auction in local area FROM STAFF REPORTS
INDIANAPOLIS — Two area licenses will be up for bid when the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission holds its annual alcoholic-beverage permit auction Nov. 1. The permit auction, which is required by Indiana law, will be held at the Indiana Government Center South, Conference Center Room B, 302 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, at 10 a.m. Bidder check-in begins at 9 a.m. This year, the ATC will auction 38 permits — down from 60 permits last year — for various communities around the state. In this area, permits
available are a beer, wine and liquor permit in Corunna and a beer dealer permit for a grocery in Rome City. Prospective bidders must complete a pre-qualification packet and post $500 to $1,000 pre-bid security, depending on the type of permit sought. A successful bid at the auction merely allows the bidder to apply for the appropriate permit. Successful bidders still must go through the normal application process. It includes a hearing before a local alcoholic beverage board in the county in which the permit would be located. At this public
hearing, members of the local community may testify for or against the permit’s issuance. After the local board makes a recommendation to approve or disapprove the permit’s issuance, the ATC then reviews the application and the local board’s recommendation and decides whether the applicant should be issued the permit. A complete list of available permits is available at in.gov/atc. Pre-bid qualification packets must be received by the ATC on or before close of business Oct. 20. For more information, visit in.gov/atc.
HOT ROD: Car won award at Kendallville show FROM PAGE A1
“I brought it over part by part after we had restored them, and the kids went to work,” said Cearbaugh. Mariana Salazaar, a 2013 East Noble graduate, led the student team that prepped and painted the car parts. “The biggest challenges were getting the paint right, and painting inside the engine compartment,” she said. Eastside High School senior Kyle Franz and Hamilton High School senior Trevor Hicks sanded the car parts before primer was applied. “This was the first hot rod we worked on, and we did most of the sanding
by hand,” said Hicks. They spent several weeks removing the old, black paint. “I think it looks great,” said Franz. The students applied three coats of primer and then three coats of the canary yellow paint as Cearbaugh wanted. Working on an all-steel car body was something different for the students used to working on modern vehicles, said Salazaar. “We were aware it was an historic car,” she said. The hot rod won an award at the Kendallville car show, and Cearbaugh plans to enter it in more car shows, but he also drives it a lot.
“It’s a fun car to drive around,” he said. The car has red painted flames coming out of the engine compartment. Impact Institute, formerly called Four County Area Vocational Cooperative with central offices in Kendallville, serves students from 12 school districts in northeastern Indiana. It offers 15 specialized vocational education programs at satellite locations separate from school facilities. High school juniors and seniors accepted into the programs spend half of each school day attending classes at their respective schools and half the day in Impact Institute programs.

DeKalb’s Jordan Isaac pulls the ball in during a kickoff return in the midst of Friday’s Northeast
BY AARON ORGAN email@example.com
WATERLOO – It was the tenacious defense and effective offense that has been East Noble’s calling card this season, against a DeKalb team just looking for a glimpse of success. The Knights defense held the Barons offense to just 64 yards of offense while its own offense built up 477 yards and tailback Brandon Mable ran for over 200 yards and three touchdowns as East Noble thoroughly handled host DeKalb 50-7 Friday night. East Noble improves to 3-1 (1-1 Northeast Hoosier Conference), while the Barons fall to 0-4 (0-4 NHC). The East Noble tormenting pass rush had Barons sophomore quarterback Harrison Price, in his first start for DeKalb, fleeing for safety most the night. Price was sacked eight
times in the game, and paid for the keepers he was able to advance beyond the line of scrimmage. The Knights allowed just 5 rushing yards and did not allow a DeKalb first down until 10:56 of the second quarter. “Our defense played pretty solid all game,” said East Noble coach Luke Amstutz. “We hang our hat on our defense. They did a great job. They get after it, they hit, they intimidate a little bit — that’s what they do.” After that defense sacked Price twice on the Barons opening series, Knights quarterback Bryce Wolfe snuck a run 17 yards up the middle for a touchdown to start his team’s scoring. The East Noble defense then sacked Price two plays into the ensuing series before senior Landan Tackett intercepted him and returned
it for a touchdown. Another sack on the Barons next series led to a turnover on downs, which the Knights capitalized on through a 5-yard touchdown scamper by Brandon Mable. The senior tailback would score again from 11 yards out on East Noble’s next series on the first play of the second quarter. Amstutz called Mable “the best player on the field,” and his speed and elusiveness was a mismatch. He finished with 213 yards on 14 carries. “Brandon had a heck of a game,” said Amstutz. “He’s the best player on the field, and that showed. He’s dynamic and makes big plays whenever he touches it, and we’ve got to keep finding ways to give him the ball and let him do his thing.” SEE BARONS, PAGE B2

CHURUBUSCO — After the Eastside Blazers scored the game’s first two touchdowns, you wouldn’t have been the only person at Churubusco High School to think an upset might be brewing. The Class 2A No. 6 Eagles had other ideas, using three big special teams plays as springboards. For good measure, Churubusco intercepted five Eastside passes. Midway through the second quarter, the host Eagles found themselves in a 13-0 hole, but scored twice before the half ended, and added three scores in the decisive third quarter on the way to a 31-13 win over the Blazers. Churubusco improved to 4-0 overall and in Northeast Corner Conference play. Eastside (1-3 overall, 0-3 in the NECC) found the end zone on an 8-yard Conner Dove-to-P.J.
Dean pass with just under five minutes left in the first, and on a 40-yard Dean touchdown run with just under six minutes left in the second quarter. At that point, Churubusco hadn’t shown it could do much with the football, with two three-and-outs its first two possessions and just crossing midfield in its third. Maybe it was Eastside’s second score that awoke Churubusco. In need of a big play, the Eagles got it when Logan Harris returned the subsequent kickoff to the Blazer 34. Four plays later, the Eagles were on the scoreboard on Adrian Springer’s 9-yard run. A holding penalty led to a punt on Eastside’s next possession, and another big return — this time a 34-yard punt return by Springer — gave the Eagles the ball at the Blazer 33.

GARRETT — Garrett and Adams Central have met on an annual basis since 1997. The two schools, known for powerful running, ended the series with a ground-pounding game Friday night for the Railroaders’ homecoming. Bryit Sumner rushed for 122 yards on 30 attempts and Garrett totaled 204 yards on the ground en route to a 14-10 victory over the Flying Jets. With the Railroaders (3-1, 1-0 Allen County Athletic Conference) heading to the Northeast Corner Conference in 2014, coach Chris DePew, who is also the school’s athletic director, said it will probably be the last time the two teams meet on the gridiron. “Leaving the ACAC, our football schedule is built for future years and this game will not be part of it,” DePew said.

Fielder homers, Tigers beat Royals 6-3 DETROIT (AP) — Justin Verlander has spent all season trying to recapture the form that made him perhaps the best pitcher in baseball in 2011 and 2012. Now, with another postseason berth in sight, the Detroit right-hander hopes he’s finally turning a corner. “It seems like the whole year has been tinkering,” Verlander said. “I feel like the last three starts, I’ve found what I really need to be working on and focusing on.” Verlander pitched effectively into the seventh inning and Prince Fielder homered and drove in three runs to lift the Tigers to a 6-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night. Detroit remained six games
ahead of second-place Cleveland in the AL Central and dealt the third-place Royals a setback in the postseason race. Kansas City is one of several teams hoping at least to catch Tampa Bay for a wild card. Verlander (13-11) allowed three runs and nine hits in 6 2-3 innings. Three relievers finished. Joaquin Benoit worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth and got the final four outs for his 19th save in 19 chances. Bruce Chen (7-3) allowed five earned runs and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings. “They had a really good plan going in. They were hacking early,” Chen said. “They prepared themselves really well.” The Royals, who are trying to
make the playoffs for the first time since winning the World Series in 1985, fell 3½ games behind the Rays after this series against the leaders in Kansas City’s division did not start well. Kansas City fell behind 6-1 in the fifth, and although the Royals rallied, Detroit’s bullpen was able to hold on. With the score 6-3, Detroit’s Drew Smyly issued a one-out walk to Eric Hosmer in the eighth, then Jose Veras came on and walked Billy Butler on four pitches. After taking ball one, Salvador Perez popped out, but Veras hit Mike Moustakas to load the bases. On came Benoit, who has been excellent since becoming Detroit’s full-time closer. He struck out David Lough to end the threat.
Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon overran Austin Jackson’s leadoff double in the Detroit first for an error, allowing Jackson to advance to third. He scored on Torii Hunter’s groundout to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead. Kansas City tied it in the fourth on an RBI single by Perez, but Fielder’s flyball in the bottom of the inning barely cleared the wall in the right-field corner for a two-run shot. It was his 24th homer of the year. Like Verlander, Fielder has had his struggles this season, but he now has 102 RBIs, the sixth time in seven years he’s reached 100. “If I’m healthy and can play every day, that’s what I’m really focused on,” Fielder said. “When you’re out there every day, you’ve
got a chance to do all those things.” The tiebreaking home run came after banged-up slugger Miguel Cabrera led off with a double to right-center that Lough just missed making a sliding catch on. It was Cabrera’s first extra-base hit since Aug. 26. Detroit added three runs in the fifth. Hunter hit a two-run single, and after an intentional walk to Cabrera, Hunter caught the Royals napping and broke for third. Chen was called for a balk, giving Hunter third and Cabrera second, and Fielder’s RBI single made it 6-1. Verlander has pitched well in 2013, just not up to the terrific standard he set the previous two years.
BARONS: Price connects with Ramus for touchdown
FROM PAGE B1
Homecoming next for Eastside
East Noble went into the half with a 36-0 lead, and scored 1:12 into the second half when Mable took a handoff around the edge and sped 70 yards for a score. Wolfe then hit sophomore receiver Bret Sible on a fade in the corner of the end zone for a 5-yard touchdown the next Knights series. By the end of the third quarter, DeKalb’s offense began to get its legs – largely against the East Noble reserves. Price hit a streaking Chad Ramus in stride for a 49-yard completion that
stands as the Barons’ biggest play of the year. Then late in the fourth quarter, Price led the offense into the red zone for the first time this season, capped by a 3-yard keeper around the end that was the first score of the season for the Barons offense. “We’ve been close a couple times this year and it’s nice to finally put that in there. It’s a nice goal that we hit there,” said DeKalb coach Mike DeVos. DeVos said he was proud of his team, which played hard throughout the game. “The score obviously (is bad) – 50-7 – but we
played four quarters of football, we had some good drives on offense, and we had some good stops defensively against a very good East Noble team,” said DeVos. “We got a little bit better tonight, and every week we’ve just got to get a little bit better. We’ve got to start from the base, get the little things down, and improve each week.” Price finished 4-for-21 for 59 yards passing with an interception. Wolfe threw for 109 yards and a touchdown for the Knights.

RAILROADERS: Garrett will play host to Bluffton in another ACAC match on Friday FROM PAGE B1
Despite a slow start to the game, Garrett turned things around in its final meeting. The area where the Railroaders stepped up immensely in the second half was on the defensive side of the ball. In the latter half of the game, AC (2-2, 0-2 ACAC) was held to approximately five plays per drive, its longest coming on the final push down 14-10. The said drive was ended on the seventh play by a Ryan Vandezande interception with less than 1 1/2 minutes remaining. Adams Central finished with 11 first downs, seven of which came in the first half. The Jets recorded 183 total yards with just 62 coming in the second half. It did not score after a Lane Harrison 26-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter. “We had a little bit of a slow start. We had a couple third-down chances in Adams Central’s first drive, but we didn’t hold them. We didn’t

adjust as well as I hoped we would, so we were down early,” DePew said. “After halftime, we were able to settle down, talk and figure some things out.” Garrett experienced its first lead of the game late in the third quarter on the tail end of an 11-play march down the field. Sumner held the rock the first two plays and gained 13 yards as the Railroaders crossed midfield after they started with good field position. Bo Davis and Sumner continued to run the ball on all but five plays where quarterback Noah Follett took over. Follett bounced back after a fumble to hit receiver Cole Wilson for a 22-yard gain on the eighth play of the series. Sumner crashed forward for two yards on the ground and Follett added three before Follett found Danny Stankovic wide open in the end zone for the go-ahead score with 44.4 seconds remaining in the third. Follett was 11-for-13 through the air with 153

yards and a touchdown. He also had a rushing score in the second frame. “We played a great second half tonight and the defense really stepped it up late,” DePew said. The Railroaders have been facing a lot of adversity from ACAC coaches this year as they parts for re-entrance into their former conference. Garrett has won three of its last four conference openers against Adams Central. Garrett will host Bluffton on Friday at 7 p.m. “They have been told the last nine months how bad they were going to be, how they lost so much from last year. They were told for nine months they were not going to win more than three or four games, but four games in we have three wins. I am so proud of the kids. However, we are not done,” DePew said. “We talked about it some this week, this is our last run in the ACAC. Let’s take our best shot at it.”

Five plays later, Kane Johnson scored from the two, cutting the deficit to 13-12 Eastside. Churubusco — which deferred the choice to start the game — executed big special teams play no. 3, an 82-yard TD return by Johnson on the second-half kickoff. The Eagles again missed the extra point, but now led 18-13. On Eastside’s next possession, Conner Dove’s pass deflected off a Blazer player’s hands, right to Churubusco’s Beau Barkley. Six plays later, the Eagles were in the end zone once more, this time on a 3-yard run by Cody Conwell and a 24-13 lead. Kadis Renier gave the Blazers excellent field position, returning the ensuing kickoff 33 yards to the Churubusco 44, but a holding penalty and a quarterback sack ended that possession before it could get going. Churubusco answered with one more score before the quarter ended, as Conwell scored from the five with :29.5 seconds left. Eastside came up empty on two fourth-quarter scoring threats. The Blazers were stopped on first-andgoal from the Eagle 7 on the first one, and a pass from Dean to Renier was stopped short of the end zone on the final play of the game. Conwell carried 21 times for 168 yards. Three other Eagle backs gained accounted for 105 more. Dean carried 24 times for 119 yards, and completed 7-of-14 passes for 81 yards for Eastside. Sprunger caught three passes for 50 yards. Terry Nickolson ran for 50 yards on six attempts. Eastside hosts Fairfield in Friday’s homecoming game.

Tannehill hopes to even series with Luck INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ryan Tannehill admires everything Andrew Luck can do on a football field. He’s seen the big arm, the surprising athleticism, even the stunning strength as he followed Luck’s career through high school, college and the NFL. Now, with the two Texas prep stars about to meet for the second time in the NFL, the Dolphins quarterback is eager to show everyone how much progress he’s made. And that he deserves to be mentioned with the top stars from the 2012 quarterback draft class. “Last year in training camp I was battling for the starting position, so I really got to use training camp this year to really grow, and grow in the offense,” he said. “We are excited about what we can do this year.” And why not? A year ago, Tannehill was the No. 8 pick, going behind Luck and Robert Griffin III and ahead of Russell Wilson. Despite being upstaged by all three, Tannehill still managed to break Miami’s rookie records for completions, attempts and yards — records previously held by David Woodley, Bob Griese and Dan Marino. The knock was he threw 12 TD passes and 13 interceptions and won seven games, failing to reach the playoffs like Luck, Griffin and Wilson. Things might be changing. A year after losing 23-20 to Luck and the Colts (1-0), Miami (1-0) returns to Indy with a new cast and coming off a 23-10 win over Cleveland. Luck isn’t surprised by Tannehill’s progress. “I’ve always been impressed

with him as a football player,” the Colts quarterback said. “To get to know him as a person was great, he’s a phenomenal guy.” Here are five things to watch Sunday: MIRROR, MIRROR: No teams spent more money in free agency than Indianapolis and Miami, and no two teams went about it quite the same way. Indy tried to reinforce its offensive line, added a high-profile receiver, a power runner and revamped its defense. The Dolphins did essentially the same thing, though they spent more money on WR Mike Wallace than any other offensive spot. Sunday’s game gives the
two big spenders a chance to see which team got the better bargain. PROTECTION CONNECTION: Colts owner Jim Irsay used Twitter to “demand” the Colts protect the franchise quarterback better after giving up four sacks last week. It could have been worse. Somehow, Luck escaped another seemingly certain sack, and took a couple of other big shots during the game. Irsay expects to see far fewer hits this week. In Miami, the complaints haven’t been the same after Tannehill was sacked four times, but both teams expect better performances in Indy.
UNHAPPY CAMPERS: Apparently, winning doesn’t cure all ills. Miami’s Randy Starks, unhappy with stalled contract negotiations and the fact he didn’t start last week, made his displeasure known with an obscene gesture during last week’s victory. Wallace, who signed a $60 million deal, was angry after catching one pass. If the Dolphins can put these issues behind them, it could go a long way in determining how competitive they will be against the Colts — and perhaps the rest of the season. THE SWITCHEROO: Vontae Davis’ trade from Miami to Indianapolis was profiled on last year’s “Hard Knocks.” He gets a second shot at his former team, and the Dolphins may not recognize Davis. Since December 2012, the former first-round draft pick has improved steadily. He won’t be the only player with something to prove Sunday. Former Colts linebacker Phillip Wheeler goes against his former team, and three ex-Dolphins — center Samson Satele, right guard Donald Thomas and linebacker Erik Walden — will start for Indy. HOME, SWEET HOME: When the Colts hired coach Chuck Pagano, he promised to make Lucas Oil Stadium a tough venue. Indy is just one play away — an improbable last-minute, 80-yard TD pass from Jacksonville — from having a perfect home mark under Pagano’s tenure. The Colts have won seven straight at home, while Miami is 3-6 on the road under second-year coach Joe Philbin.
SPORTS BRIEFS • NASCAR adds Gordon to Chase field amid controversy JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — NASCAR added Jeff Gordon to the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field Friday, a stunning and unprecedented step in the fallout from at least two attempts to manipulate the results of the regular season-ending race at Richmond last weekend. Chairman Brian France expanded the field to 13 drivers for the first time since the format was implemented in 2004. Front Row Motorsports appeared to ask for a deal from Penske Racing in the closing laps at Richmond as part of an apparent request from Penske to give Joey Logano pivotal track position he needed to earn a spot in the Chase. Logano passed Front Row driver David Gilliland, who then seemed to slow down by at least 1 mph, according to an Associated Press review of radio communications and data. France said NASCAR could not determine there was a bargain between Front Row and Penske, but still believed the move was necessary to protect the “integrity” of the series. He said both teams had been placed on probation for the rest of the season. Gordon, the four-time champion, now joins Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jimmie Johnson, the five-time champion, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne in the Chase. Gordon goes into the Chase as the 13th seed, 15 points behind leader Matt Kenseth when the 10-race series begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. NASCAR will hold a mandatory team and driver meeting Saturday to clarify “the rules of the road” moving forward. France would not specify what won’t be tolerated going forward. The entire mess began a mere seven laps from the finish Saturday night with Newman en route to a victory that would have given him the final spot in the Chase. MWR driver Clint Bowyer spun, bringing out a caution and setting in motion a chain of events that cost Newman the win and a Chase berth. It also cost Gordon a Chase berth and put Truex and Logano into the final two spots. It later became clear that Bowyer’s spin was deliberate — although NASCAR has said it can’t prove that — and that Bowyer and teammate Brian Vickers allowed Logano to gain late finishing positions to bump Gordon out of the Chase to aid Truex. Among the penalties levied against MWR was a $300,000 fine and the indefinite suspension of general manager Ty Norris. Bowyer, Truex and Brian Vickers were docked 50 points each, and their crew chiefs were placed on probation through the end of the year. Bowyer has denied the spin was deliberate. NASCAR could only prove one action — radio communication between Norris and Vickers in which a confused Vickers was told to pit as the field went green with three laps to go.
Appeals court upholds slugger Bonds’ conviction SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal appeals court in San Francisco on Friday upheld former Giants slugger Barry Bond’s obstruction of justice conviction stemming from his 2003 testimony to a grand jury investigating performance enhancing drug use among elite athletes. The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Bonds’ response to a question about whether his trainer, Greg Anderson, had ever given him any self-injectable substances was “evasive, misleading, and capable of influencing the grand jury to minimize the trainer’s role in the distribution of performance enhancing drugs.” Bonds gave the testimony before a grand jury in December 2003 after prosecutors asked him whether Anderson had ever given him “anything that required a syringe to inject yourself with?” Bonds referred to his father, former major leaguer Bobby Bonds, when he responded “that’s what keeps our friendship. You know, I am sorry, but that — you know, that — I was a celebrity child, not just in baseball by my own instincts. I became a celebrity child with a famous father. I just don’t get into other people’s business because of my father’s situation, you see ...” A federal jury in April 2011 found baseball’s all-time home runs leader guilty of obstruction as a result of that response. That particular exchange wasn’t included in the indictment originally released in November 2007. During oral arguments before the appeals court, Bonds’ attorney argued that that omission was a “dagger in the heart” of Bonds’ conviction. The attorney, Dennis Riordan, also said that Bonds ultimately answered the question when it was put to him again and he denied receiving any substance to inject. Assistant U.S. Attorney Merry Jean Chan countered that the denial was a lie because Bonds’ former personal assistant, Cathy Hoskins, testified that she witnessed Anderson inject Bonds. Chan said Bonds’ denial and his other rambling answers to the same question throughout his grand jury appearance added up to obstruction. Bonds is now facing 30-days’ home confinement as well as two years of probation, 250 hours of community service and a $4,000 fine.

Road to Damascus Some things you just have to do, in spite of great uncertainty. Launching missiles at Syria isn’t one of them. Many pundits talk about going to war as if all we have to do is make up our minds about what “ought” to happen — who the bad guys are — and the rest is just details. If we decide we must punish a tyrant, let the military worry about how to get it done. We ought to worry more about details. Everyone agrees there are huge “known unknowns” in Syria — we barely know the composition of the rebel movement we’re supposed aid — but we should JOHN to be more concerned about unknowns,” to STOSSEL “unknown borrow former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s phrase. Remember the confidence with which he and other Bush administration officials described their plans to remake Iraq? Dick Cheney said, “We will, in fact, be greeted as liberators.” The Wall Street Journal beat the drums for war for a year. I read that Iraq was full of repressed democratic activists just waiting for Saddam to be overthrown. Pundits also argued that once the authoritarian ruler was gone, Iraq would blossom into a showcase of peace and democracy that would inspire transformation throughout the region. I wanted to believe it. Once they had a choice, why wouldn’t they pursue our way of life? It’s clearly better! Instead, we’ve spent more than a decade fighting feuding factions that most Americans have never heard of — and still can’t name. When pro-war pundits did admit to uncertainty about what would happen in Iraq, it was often to stoke fear about what would happen if we didn’t intervene. Saddam might use chemical weapons! Saddam might get nukes! Well, maybe. I’m glad Saddam is gone, and Iraqis are better off. But the masses yearning to breathe free turned out to include more troublemakers than we expected. I don’t trust John Kerry, but I’ll accept his claim that Syria’s leaders probably used chemical weapons to kill 1,400 people. Horrible. But are we going to enforce a “red line” to tell dictators that if they murder their people, they better use conventional weapons? Even if that’s the goal, our options are limited. Maybe we’ll: • lob a few cruise missiles, like Bill Clinton did in Sudan. • hit Assad’s compound, killing hundreds of innocents, without killing Assad. • kill Assad himself and then … what? President Obama argues that limited intervention in Syria might accomplish good more quickly and cheaply than our efforts in Iraq did. He said he wants a two-day engagement instead of months of fighting. But we thought that would happen in Iraq, too. We didn’t foresee years of civil war. What do we fail to foresee now? More intervention from Russia? China? Iran? World war? Even if the conflict remains localized and contained — a dangerous assumption in the “fog of war” — we can’t assume that a new government will be more democratic or tolerant than Assad’s regime. We already know that the rebel forces include factions allied with al-Qaida. Some of those people execute Christians and want to replace Assad’s repressive but multi-faith regime with Islamic totalitarianism. If they murder Christians while still fighting Assad, what will they do once in power? Years ago, al-Qaida (and Osama bin Laden) gained power because America funded “rebels” fighting the Russians in Afghanistan. Given what happened on Sept. 11, 2001, there are worse things than leaving murderous Russian-backed governments in place. I hate Assad. I hate what’s happened in Syria. I also hate what happened in Rwanda and Darfur and what still happens in Somalia, China, Russia, Zimbabwe and so on. But there’s just not much we can do about it without making new enemies and exacerbating America’s coming bankruptcy. America cannot police the world and shouldn’t try. Defense should mean defense. Unless we are attacked, we shouldn’t go to war.

We all need to do a little purple for Mary We take our stories and our secrets to those we trust in our lives. Sometimes these folks are relatives or close friends or they are the folks we see on occasion. These folks greet us with a smile, tell us to have a seat and listen to our stories. Bartender. Barbershop owner. Hairdresser. Fortune teller. Horse groomer. Which one am I choosing? I have to say I have a secret love affair with my hairdresser, Mary Ramsey. Mary and I have had this affair for over 10 years. I walk into the shop, am greeted with her smile and we begin. I love visiting Mary. In one short hour we can cover all our news with nonstop talking. Not only is she my hairdresser, but Mary has starred in our theater Radio Shows. Before each show she brings along the girls from Finishing Touch to do hair and make-up to make sure we look star quality on stage. Once in a while I do worry that my hair will turn blue or she will take a whack at it with the scissors. I carry a picture of Susan Sarandon in my bag and always set it out so she can see our ultimate goal. The picture is a bit wrinkled, but nonetheless I always set it out. Mary laughs each time. This love relationship did not always exist in my life. The first time I ever visited the beauty shop (as we called it) I had cut my own hair. We were swimming every day when I was 11 and had to wear bathing caps. My long hair was jammed up inside the cap, so I cut a hole in the top to let my ponytail trail out. One day I thought I would be clever enough to cut my hair a little shorter, so I simply cut off the pony tail. It didn’t work out so well. My mom took me to
the Beauty Shop, where I ended up with a pixie hair cut. I am still a bit spontaneous about my hair. Once when I was teaching at Hamilton I asked Lynne Bercaw to cut my hair off during recess. We went down to the nurse’s room (where the scissors were really sharp) and she did cut off my hair. I let Jonah cut it once also when he was 3. What was I thinking on that one? The last time a nonhairdresser cut my hair was this summer after I LOU ANN broke my arm and couldn’t put it in a ponytail. I gave HOMAN- the scissors to Kristin, my daughter-in-law, and told her SAYLOR to cut off my hair. She actually did a good job. Mary often jokes with me when I take a seat in her chair. “So, who did you have cut your hair this time?” She does not forget a story. After my accident in China, Mary came to my house twice and set up shop in my kitchen. Does it get any better than that? Usually she works and we laugh out loud, and sometimes we whisper. Time flies. By the time I leave I have forgotten I actually came in because of hair. I think Mary and I could while away any summer afternoon even without scissors in her hand. But now, after all her kindness to everyone who meets her, Mary needs us. Mary was diagnosed with breast cancer in August and is preparing for surgery and for what else may
But now, after all her kindness to everyone who meets her, Mary needs us.
• follow in the months ahead. It is our time to take care of Mary. I know the usual color for breast cancer awareness is pink, but our Mary has purple hair. She just doesn’t do pink. So, ladies and gentlemen, the campaign is just beginning. We are going purple for Mary. You don’t have to color all your hair, unless you want to, but just a piece here and there. I am calling this Fifty Shades of Purple. The girls at Finishing Touch (or other salons) are ready for you to add this lovely color to your hair. My purple streak is underneath and is plainly visible when I pull my hair back. Every day I think of Mary when I see this purple. Sometimes it just feels really good to do something for someone. Mary is not just someone. She is a wonderful friend to many. So, let’s go purple! One more thing … do I or don’t I? I have to say that only my hairdresser knows, and Mary isn’t about to tell. 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.
What Others Say • Vexing U.N. vetoes Many Americans may be infuriated that Russia and China have signaled their readiness to veto any United Nations Security Council resolution that calls for intervention to punish Syria’s use of chemical weapons in its brutal civil war. According to U.N. rules, adopted in 1945 when the international organization was created, any of the five permanent members (the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, China and France) of the Security Council may veto any resolution brought before the council, thus preventing any action the other members
may favor. Critics believe that the U.N. founders made a terrible mistake in granting that veto power, and perhaps they’re right. But it would be a serious mistake to think that the veto power doesn’t serve American interests as well as those of our adversaries. Over the years, the American ambassador to the U.N. has frequently exercised the right to cast a veto. … The first United States veto came in 1970 and dealt with a major crisis in what was then Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). The United Kingdom, of which Rhodesia was once a colony, vetoed seven Security Council
resolutions on that subject. Two years later, the United States cast the only veto on a resolution that was critical of Israel. In fact, since 1972 the United States has been by far the most frequent user of the veto and nearly all the vetoes involved resolutions that were contrary to Israel’s political interests. … Benjamin Ferencz, a prosecutor at the Nuremberg war crimes trials after World War II, suggested (in a recent letter to The New York Times) that in this case the Security Council should refer the matter to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, “which is competent to penalize crimes against
humanity.” What he didn’t say, however, is how the Syrian leader, Bashar al-Assad, could be forced to face that court. Still, the U.N., for its faults and machinations, does provide a useful if imperfect global platform for maintaining peaceful relations and providing humanitarian aid, as world leaders envisioned when it was formed at the end of World War II. The United States should never allow its involvement to diminish its security or sovereignty, but the United Nations, vetoes and all, does serve a valuable purpose. The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune

Briefs • Flight 666 goes to Helsinki on Friday the 13th HELSINKI (AP) — Would you board flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th? For superstitious travelers, that might be tempting fate. But Finnair passengers on AY666 to Helsinki — which has the 3 letter designation HEL — didn’t seem too bothered. Friday’s flight was almost full. “It has been quite a joke among the pilots” said veteran Finnair pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto, who flew the Airbus A320 from Copenhagen to Helsinki. “I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me.” The daily flight AY666 from Copenhagen to Helsinki falls on Friday the 13th twice in 2013. Friday the 13th is considered bad luck in many countries and the number 666 also has strong negative biblical associations. Some airlines, like Scandinavian Airlines, take these fears seriously and don’t have a row 13 on board. However, the negative connotations are a relatively new phenomenon for northern Europeans, and Finnair and other regional carriers like Norwegian and Estonian Air keep row 13.
Four sentenced to death in India gang rape trial NEW DELHI (AP) — An Indian court Friday sentenced to death four men for the gang rape and murder of a young New Delhi woman, ordering them to the gallows for a brutal attack that riveted India, where it became a symbol of the widespread mistreatment of women and the government’s inability to deal with crime. Issuing his decision, Judge Yogesh Khanna said the attack “shocked the collective conscience” of India. “In these times, when crime against women is on the rise, the courts cannot turn a blind eye toward such gruesome crimes.” After the death sentence, the wail of one of the four men, 20-year-old Vinay Sharma, filled the tiny courtroom. Sharma, an assistant at a gym, then broke down in sobs. As Khanna walked from his bench, defense lawyer A.P. Singh, who has defended all four men at various times, began to shout at him: “This is not the victory of truth. But it is the defeat of justice.” Like all death sentences, Khanna’s order must be confirmed by India’s High Court.
People • Lohan’s mother charged with drunken driving FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Lindsay Lohan’s mother is facing an aggravated drunken driving charge in New York following a traffic stop on Long Island. State police say Dina Lohan, 50, was stopped on the Northern State Parkway Lohan in Nassau County at 11 p.m. Thursday after troopers clocked her driving a BMW at 77 mph in a 55-mph zone. She took a breath test that pegged her blood-alcohol level at 0.20 percent, police said. That’s more than twice New York’s legal limit of 0.08 percent. Lohan was brought to a state police barracks in Farmingdale, issued tickets for driving while intoxicated and speeding and then released to a “sober third party,” state police said in a news release. She is due in court Sept. 24.
Four dead from flooding in Colorado LYONS, Colo. (AP) — Coffee-colored floodwaters cascaded downstream from the Colorado Rockies on Friday, transforming normally scenic rivers and creeks into fast, unforgiving torrents and forcing thousands more evacuations from water-logged communities beset by days of steady rain. The relentless rush of water turned whole towns into muddy swamps and brought most transportation to a standstill. Damage assessments were on hold as authorities tried to rescue more than 2,500 people stranded in an emergency that stretched from Colorado Springs all the way to the Wyoming border. A break in the weather aided crews as they ferried a dozen residents at a time out of Lyons and other mountain towns that had been cut off by high water. The Colorado National Guard tweeted that it helped evacuate nearly 300 people from Lyons and on Friday added helicopter flights to the search-and-rescue efforts, spokeswoman
Cheresa Theiral said. Many roads remained impassable, and still more rain was expected later in the day. The overflowing St. Vrain River sliced the town of Longmont in half. All major roads were closed, and several thousand homes and businesses were without power. “This one’s going to bring us to our knees,” said Tom Simmons, president and co-owner of Crating Technologies, a packing service that had its warehouse inundated. “It’s hoping against hope. We’re out of business for a long time.” Most of those who were stranded were not in immediate danger. Many chose to stay behind with loved ones or to watch over their property. But some families had been without electricity or running water for two days. Others were low on fuel and medicine. At least four people have been killed. And the rains forced hundreds of people to seek emergency shelter up and down Colorado’s heavily populated Front Range, which has received

Retail sales show growth in August WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans boosted their spending at retail businesses only modestly in August, indicating that economic growth remains sluggish.

July-September quarter, about the same as the previous quarter. That suggests economic growth is slowing to an annual rate of about 2 percent, down from the 2.5 percent annual rate that the government estimated for the April-June quarter. Most economists said the retail sales figures are likely healthy enough for the Federal Reserve to begin cutting back its monthly bond purchases when it meets next week. The Fed is buying $85 billion in Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities each month to keep interest rates low and spur more borrowing and spending. Sales of autos and furniture both jumped 0.9 percent in August. Electronics and appliance sales rose 0.8 percent. But clothing sales dropped 0.8 percent and sporting goods sales also fell. Last week automakers reported that their sales in August topped 16 million at an annual pace for the first time since November 2007, just before the recession began. Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Honda, Chrysler and General Motors all posted double-digit gains over last August. But many retailers have said in recent weeks that shoppers have been reluctant to spend freely for back-toschool shopping. According to a tally of 10 retail chains by the International Council of Shopping Centers, sales rose 3.6 percent last month. That’s down from a 6 percent gain for in August 2012.
Girl bullied for almost a year before suicide TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — For nearly a year, as many as 15 girls ganged up on 12-year-old Rebecca Ann Sedwick and picked on her, authorities say, bombarding her with online messages such as “You should die” and “Why don’t you go kill yourself.” Rebecca couldn’t take it anymore. She changed one of her online screen names to “That Dead Girl.” She messaged a boy in North Carolina: “I’m jumping.” And then, on Monday, the Lakeland girl went to an abandoned concrete plant, climbed a tower and hurled herself to her death. Authorities have seized computers and cellphones from some of the girls as they decide whether to bring charges in what appeared to be the nation’s latest deadly cyberbullying case. The bullying started over a “boyfriend issue” last
year at Crystal Lake Middle School, Sheriff Grady Judd said. But he gave no details. Police said Rebecca was suspended at one point for fighting with a girl who used to be her friend. Rebecca had been “absolutely terrorized” by the other girls, Judd said. He said detectives found some of her diaries at her home, and she talked of how depressed she was about the situation. “Her writings would break your heart,” he said. The case has illustrated, once more, the ways in which youngsters are using the Internet to torment others. “There is a lot of digital drama. Middle-school kids are horrible to each other, especially girls,” said Perry Aftab, a New Jersey-based lawyer and expert on cyberbullying. Last December, Rebecca was hospitalized for three
days after cutting her wrists because of what she said was bullying, according to the sheriff. Later, after Rebecca complained that she had been pushed in the hallway and that another girl wanted to fight her, Rebecca’s mother began home-schooling her in Lakeland, a city of about 100,000 midway between Tampa and Orlando, Judd said. This fall, Rebecca started at a new school, Lawton Chiles Middle Academy, and loved it, Judd said. But the bullying continued online. “She put on a perfect, happy face. She never told me,” Rebecca’s mother, Tricia Norman, told the Lakeland Ledger. “I never had a clue. I mean, she told me last year when she was being bullied, but not this year, and I have no idea why.” After Rebecca’s suicide, police looked at her computer and found search queries such as “what is
overweight for a 13-year-old girl,” ”how to get blades out of razors,” and “how many over-the-counter drugs do you take to die.” One of her screensavers also showed Rebecca with her head resting on a railroad track. Police said that she had met the North Carolina boy at an airport and that they had remained friends online. The 12-year-old boy didn’t tell anyone about the “I’m jumping, I can’t take it anymore” message he received from her on Monday morning, shortly before her suicide, authorities said. Detectives said the other girls’ parents have been cooperative. Florida has a bullying law, but it leaves punishment to schools, not police. Legal experts said it is difficult to bring charges against someone accused of driving a person to suicide. “We’ve had so many
suicides that are related to digital harassment. But we also have free-speech laws in this country,” Aftab said. In a review of news articles, The Associated Press found about a dozen suicides in the U.S. since October 2010 that were attributed at least in part to cyberbullying. Aftab said she believes the real number is at least twice that. In 2006, 13-year-old Megan Meier hanged herself in California after she was dumped online by a fictitious teenage boy created in part by an adult neighbor, Lori Drew, authorities said. A jury found Drew guilty of three federal misdemeanors, but a judge threw out the verdicts and acquitted her. Florida’s law, the Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students Act, was named after a teenager who killed himself after being harassed by classmates.

Child feeling all alone facing schoolyard bullies DEAR ABBY: I’m 8 years old and in second grade. I’m writing because I’m being bullied at school. I’m really smart, and at my school that’s a really bad thing. I try hard to be nice, but here that’s worse than being smart. The teachers didn’t help me with the bullies, so I stopped telling them. My mom told everyone she could about the bullies, but nobody helps. It keeps getting worse over time. Every day someone picks on me, pushes me or makes fun of me. Please help me. —FEELING TORN IN TEXAS DEAR FEELING TORN: Because you haven’t told your teachers that the bullying hasn’t stopped, they may think that it’s no longer going on. Tell them again what you are experiencing, and be sure your mother knows. She should discuss this with your teacher. If things don’t get better, she needs to talk to the principal and, if

DEAR ABBY: I am agoraphobic. Although I have managed to make accommodations for special occasions like birthday parties and dinners with my family, I am not comfortable at extremely large gatherings. My parents understand this, but my sister and
brother-in-law think that if I’d just “try harder,” everything would work out. Abby, I must take a mild tranquilizer to go to small gatherings, and I have told them this. Would people tell someone who is allergic to something to just “try harder”? How can I explain this better? — AFRAID IN TAYLORSVILLE, UTAH DEAR AFRAID: I’m sorry to say this, but individuals have been known to give people with severe food allergies items containing their “trigger foods” because they are convinced “just a little” won’t hurt them — or worse, that the problem is imaginary. Your sister and brother-in-law do not understand phobias. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Spinal manipulation can have good results spinal cord travels through the bony ring. Projections called processes extend in several directions from this ring. Chiropractors apply direct pressure to the processes of one or more vertebrae using a finger or the palm of the hand. Most ASK manipulations DOCTOR K. also involve indirect force. The Dr. Anthony practitioner carefully the Komaroff twists patient’s head, shoulders and hips, temporarily displacing parts of the spine. When treating people with low back pain, chiropractors and the other health workers
may also use other therapies. These include massage, heat and cold therapies, and electrotherapies. For some people, chiropractic care reduces the amount of medication needed to control pain. A 2010 review looked at 12 studies involving 2,887 people with low back pain. It concluded that chiropractic care improved short- and mediumterm pain more than other treatments. These included exercise, physical therapy and medication. But the overall differences were slight — and there was no difference in long-term pain. People who saw chiropractors also reported less short-term disability compared with people who received other treatments. But again, the difference was small. On the other hand, studies like this one give us good information about the experience of the average patient. You may or may not be like the “average” patient. If you have

DEAR DOCTOR K: I suffer from low back pain, and I’m thinking of visiting a chiropractor for spinal manipulation treatments. What do you think? DEAR READER: Spinal manipulation treatments are performed by chiropractors, osteopaths, and some massage and physical therapists. More than one of my patients has tried this treatment for back pain. They usually don’t like to tell me about it, because they think I’ll disapprove. Actually, I think there is evidence from scientific studies that chiropractic therapy for short-term or recurrent pain may be at least as effective as the treatments that I have to offer. But there’s not enough evidence to recommend chiropractic care for chronic back pain. Your spine is made up of a column of interlocking bones called vertebrae. Each vertebra has a circular solid body and a bony ring behind it. The
necessary, the school board. Many schools offer programs that discourage bullying and train students who can help. As a last resort, your mother should consult a lawyer. You have a right to an education that’s free DEAR from this ABBY kind of pressure.
had good relief from spinal manipulation in the past, I would not discourage you from trying it again. Chiropractic care carries a small degree of risk. That’s especially true for people with neck pain. While I know of patients who have found relief from spinal manipulation of the vertebrae in the neck, I think such treatment is risky. Very rarely, chiropractic manipulations can worsen or even cause additional problems. You also should avoid spinal manipulation if you have rheumatoid arthritis or nerve-related low back pain. If you’ve been told you have a “slipped disk” or a “herniated disk” that is pinching a nerve and causing pain in your buttock, thigh and lower leg, that’s likely nerve-related pain. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is:AskDoctorK.com.

Helping Great Lakes rare bipartisan goal TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Nowhere has the fervor to cut government down to size been more dramatically on display than in the industrial Midwest. Republicans have seized control of statehouses across the traditional battleground region, where they’ve slashed budgets with a vengeance. Their counterparts in Congress have waged war with Democrats over federal spending, led by Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, architect of blueprints that renounce “earmarks” for local
projects and even target Social Security. But there’s a 94,000-square-mile exception to the Republicans’ crusade to starve the federal beast: the Great Lakes. For all their indignation about government overreach, Republicans in the eight-state region are matching Democrats’ enthusiasm for an array of federal programs benefiting the inland seas, from dredging harbors to controlling invasive predators like the
fish-killing sea lamprey. When a House subcommittee this summer tried to cut 80 percent of President Barack Obama’s Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which has pumped $1.3 billion into 1,700 grants for cleanups and research since 2010, alarmed Republican freshman David Joyce of Ohio quickly weighed in to get most of next year’s money restored. A bipartisan parade from neighboring states is now backing his push to get the rest of the money or even increase it.
Where the Great Lakes are concerned, party politics really does stop at the water’s edge. It’s a marriage of convenience, explained partly by the lakes’ equal importance to the economy and the environment. They supply the drinking needs of more than 30 million people, support 1.5 million jobs and generate $62 billion in wages annually. They’re also home to more than 3,500 plant and animal species. More fundamentally, the vast lakes are cultural icons, inspiring poetry such
as Longfellow’s “The Song of Hiawatha” and countless memories of fishing with grandpa or camping on the beach. “There’s just something about the Great Lakes that’s part of our DNA, I think,” said Rep. Candice Miller, a Republican from suburban Detroit. “It’s hard to explain. It’s about our way of life.” In Congress, vote-rich states such as Illinois and Ohio, along with neighboring Pennsylvania and New York, pack considerable punch when they

stick together. Other clean-water programs lacking such an impassioned constituency haven’t fared as well. Federal funds that provide loans for drinking water and sewage treatment improvements also were cut 80 percent. No one has come to their rescue. “The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is among the most fiercely defended programs in the country,” said Andy Buchsbaum, regional director of the National Wildlife Federation.
