GOOD MORNING Murder unsolved eight years later MONGO — It’s been nearly eight years since her father and stepmother were murdered, but when October arrives, Sherry Musilek says she becomes a very different person. “Yeah, every year when October comes around, I go into a different mood,” she said. “I can’t help but think, ‘Here comes another memorial.’” Musilek’s father, Mongo resident Terry Anderson, and his wife, Darlene, were murdered eight years ago. Their case remains unsolved, so Musilek once again will mark the anniversary of their deaths by holding a somber memorial service in the Mongo cemetery where the Andersons are buried. This year’s ceremony takes place Sunday at 1 p.m. “It’s been another year without any leads,” said Eric Musilek, Sherry’s husband. Early on the morning of Oct. 21, 2005, the bodies of Anderson and his wife were found brutally murdered at their rural Mongo home. Darlene Anderson’s body was discovered inside the house, Terry Anderson’s body was found near the house in his shop. Several unique and antique weapons Terry Anderson owned turned up missing, along with several collectible coins he and his wife had. None of those items ever have been ever been found. The crime attracted national attention and was featured on an episode of the television show “America’s Most Wanted.” Musilek and her family set up a reward, offering $20,000 to the person who helps identify and convict her father’s killer. But so far, no one has come forward to collect that reward.

Power line move jolts neighbors Airport Authority hears objections BY AARON ORGAN

AUBURN — The DeKalb County Airport Authority board at its regular meeting Friday again was peppered with questions from residents about moving electric lines away from airport property. Thursday night, residents met with representatives from American Electric Power, which

plans to move and upgrade its lines near the airport to sites between C.R. 29 and 31 directly on and above residential properties. The board has an agreement with AEP to move lines for $2.6 million as part of the airport’s planned runway extension project, because the lines interfere with flight patterns. The lines need to

be moved whether the runway extension occurs or not, the board has been told. Residents who are upset about the new sites for high-voltage lines have approached the Airport Authority since it agreed to the plan and learned where AEP planned to move the lines. The board has maintained it has little or no say in where the utility places its lines. Airport Authority board president Brad Stump said the

residents’ meeting with AEP representatives Thursday night at the airport was well attended. Stump said AEP officials answered some questions from residents, but also handed out and received comment cards. AEP will respond with answers to questions on those cards, Stump said. Friday, residents continued asking the board why AEP could not find a new path or bury the lines. One resident pressed the SEE POWER LINE, PAGE A7

GOP rift seen in shutdown

Tea party doesn’t want to ‘fight another day’


Hiking to fight hunger An organizer said Friday that more than 100 people — including these youngsters — joined the annual Northeast Indiana CROP Hunger Walk in Auburn Sunday. The event raised money to fight hunger overseas and through four local charities — St. Martin’s Community Kitchen in Garrett, the Friends’ Table at Auburn Presbyterian Church, Butler Food Pantry at the Butler United Methodist Church and Boomerang Backpack. Organizers have not yet compiled the amount of money raised.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republicans’ clear defeat in the budget-debt brawl has widened the rift between the Grand Old Party and the blossoming tea party movement that helped revive it. Implored by House Speaker John Boehner to unite and “fight another day” against President Barack Obama and Democrats, Republicans instead intensified attacks on one another, an ominous sign in advance of more difficult policy fights and the 2014 midterm elections. The tea party movement spawned by the passage of Obama’s health care overhaul three years ago put the GOP back in charge of the House and in hot pursuit of the law’s repeal. The effort hit a wall this month in the budget and debt fight, but tea partyers promised to keep up the effort. Whatever the future of the troubled law, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell vowed he would not permit another government shutdown. “I think we have now fully acquainted our new members with what a losing strategy that is,” McConnell said in an interview with The Hill newspaper. Tea party Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas told ABC News he wouldn’t

rule out using the tactic again, when the same budget and debt questions come up next year. “I will continue to do anything I can to stop the train wreck that is Obamacare,” Cruz said. That divide defined the warring Republican factions ahead of the midterm elections, when 35 seats in the Democratic-controlled Senate and all 435 seats in the Republican-dominated House will be on the ballot. In the nearer term, difficult debates over immigration and farm policy loom, along with another round of budget and debt talks. The animosity only intensified as lawmakers fled Washington this week for a few days’ rest. The Twitterverse crackled with threats, insults and the names of the 27 GOP senators and 87 GOP House members who voted for the leadership’s agreement that reopened the government and raised the nation’s borrowing limit. Republicans got none of their demands, keeping only the spending cuts they had won in 2011. Within hours, TeaParty. net tweeted a link to the 114 lawmakers, tagging each as a Republican in name only who should be turned out of office: “Your 2014 #RINO hunting list!”

Gasoline leak creates headache for county Budget held clue to hidden problem BY MATT GETTS

AUBURN — A budget-savvy sheriff. Work done three decades ago. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management. And maybe down the road an arrest. DeKalb County officials have had their hands full with a fuel leak at the county highway department on Nineteenth Street in Auburn. Exactly how much gasoline has leaked is not known. “No drinking water has been impacted,” said Dan Goldblatt, public information officer with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, which has been monitoring the situation from the start. “There are no wells in the area.” No fines will be assessed involving the spill, Goldblatt added. “Nobody has done anything wrong,” he said. Through Wednesday, the county had spent $30,000 dealing with the issue that literally was uncovered by DeKalb County Sheriff Don Lauer going over budget numbers for his department last spring.

County workers and an environmental rehabilitation crew were busy this month excavating a 40-by-40-foot hole around a former above-ground fueling station after standing gasoline was found. Seven county departments, including the sheriff’s department, used the fueling site. Work to control the leaked fuel is being overseen by IDEM’s Rich Hackler. Tests are being conducted on the fuel to determine how long it had been in the ground. Until those tests return, officials won’t know if the leak came from the above-ground tank or a buried tank that was sealed by the county in 1990. It could be a combination of the two. Cedar Creek runs within 270 feet of the site. according to DeKalb County Homeland Security director Roger Powers. No gasoline has been found in the creek, and monitoring stations have been installed to make sure none reaches it. Booms have been placed in the creek to catch gasoline if any does get into the creek. Goldblatt said wildlife in the waters has not been affected.


This photo, provided by the DeKalb County Department of Homeland Security, shows a 40-by-40-foot area that was excavated at the DeKalb County Highway Department on Nineteenth Street in Auburn. The ground was contaminated by gasoline, and 400 tons of contaminated soil had to be removed.

Excavation at the site went down to the water table, and special venting pipes have been installed to collect any gasoline that may come toward the surface when the water table rises. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management is overseeing the work and the monitoring, which will need to

Waterloo students designing running track BY KATHRYN BASSETT

WATERLOO — Waterloo Elementary School students have worked together to create a project intended to benefit the entire community. Principal Nicole Veit and members of her teaching staff attended Tuesday’s

meeting of the DeKalb Central school board and described how the students have arrived at a project to design and create a running track. “They want to do it. They want to create,� Veit said. She explained how students participated in projectbased learning and came up

with something to work on together as an entire school. Each class generated ideas, Veit said. “We recognize that the school is the hub of our community. It’s a hang-out spot,� she added. Students narrowed down the proposals and used a method of “hot dot� voting

to select their top two choices. The running track was the winning project, and the school is partnering with The Home Depot in planning, development and implementation, the school board heard. The Home Depot also will work with the school to renovate an outdoor learning area that has become neglected, Veit said.

KENDALLVILLE — A Noble County man was listed in serious condition at Parkview Regional Medical Center Friday after the car he was driving struck an East Noble school bus head-on Thursday afternoon on Angling Road. Blaike Michael Zimmerman, 19, of the 8000 block of Angling Road, Kendallville, suffered hip and internal injuries and was airlifted to the Fort Wayne hospital. The Noble County Sheriff’s Department released his name Friday morning. Police and emergency responders were called to the crash scene at 3:39 p.m. Thursday. Zimmerman was driving a 1997 Ford southbound on Angling Road, just south of C.R. 1200N, when it went left of center while coming around a curve, according to the Noble County Sheriff’s Department. The Ford struck the 2002 International East Noble school bus head-on, police said. The impact sent the car off the south side of the road, and the bus left the north side of the road and struck a traffic sign and utility pole. The bus was on its normal route at the time, according to East Noble officials. The bus driver, Michael V. Kaiser, 49, of Wolcottville, was not injured. Three juveniles on the bus suffered minor injuries, but no immediate medical attention was needed, police said.

In this 2003 file photo, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Tom Foley speaks after receiving the Medal of Merit during ceremonies in Olympia, Wash.

Ex-House Speaker Tom Foley dies at 84 WASHINGTON (AP) — Tall and courtly, Tom Foley served 30 years in the House when partisan confrontation was less rancorous than today and Democrats had dominated for decades. He crowned his long political career by becoming speaker, only to be toppled when Republicans seized control of Congress in 1994, turned out by angry voters with little taste for incumbents. Foley, the first speaker to be booted from office by his constituents since the Civil War, died Friday at the age of 84 of complications from a stroke, according to his wife, Heather. She said he had suffered a stroke last December and was hospitalized in May with pneumonia. He returned home after a week and had been on hospice care there ever since, she said. “Foley was very much a believer that the perfect should not get in the way of the achievable,” Ms. Foley wrote in a 10-page obituary of her husband. She said he believed that “half of something was better than none.” “There was always another day and another Congress to move forward and get the

other half done,” she wrote. “America has lost a legend of the United States Congress,” President Barack Obama said in a statement Friday, adding, “Tom’s straightforward approach helped him find common ground with members of both parties.” Foley, who grew up in a politically active family in Spokane, Wash., represented that agriculture-heavy area for 15 terms in the House, including more than five years in the speaker’s chair. In that job, he was third in line of succession to the presidency and was the first speaker from west of the Rocky Mountains. As speaker, he was an active negotiator in the 1990 budget talks that led to President George H.W. Bush breaking his pledge to never agree to raise taxes, an episode that played a role in Bush’s 1992 defeat. Even so, Bush released a statement Friday lauding Foley. “Tom never got personal or burned bridges,” said Bush. “We didn’t agree on every issue, but on key issues we managed to put the good of the country ahead of politics.” Also in 1990, Foley let the House vote on a resolution authorizing Bush to use force against Iraq for its invasion of Kuwait, despite “strong personal reservations and the strenuous objections of a good many” House Democrats, Bob Michel, an Illinois Republican who was

House minority leader at the time, recalled Friday. “But he granted our request for a vote because it was the right thing to do. He was that kind of leader,” Michel said in a statement. Foley was also at the helm when, in 1992, revelations that many lawmakers had been allowed to overdraw their checking accounts at the House bank provoked a wave of anger against incumbents. In 1993, he helped shepherd President Bill Clinton’s budget through the House. He never served a day as a member of the House’s minority party. The Republican capture of the chamber in the 1994 gave them control for the first time in 40 years, and Foley, it turned out, was their prize victim. He was replaced as speaker by his nemesis, Rep. Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., leader of a group of rebellious younger Republicans who rejected the less-combative tactics of established GOP leaders like Michel. Foley was defeated in 1994 by 4,000 votes by Spokane attorney George Nethercutt, a Republican who supported term limits, which the speaker fought. Also hurting Foley was his ability to bring home federal benefits, which Nethercutt used by accusing him of pork-barrel politics. Foley later served as U.S. ambassador to Japan for four years in the Clinton administration.

Theater shooter’s lawyers want emails thrown out for trial CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Lawyers for Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes on Friday added his emails to the list of evidence they say should not be allowed at his trial. Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and wounding 70 others in the July 2012 attack. Prosecutors are looking for any evidence, such as emails, that might show signs of rationality that would undermine the insanity defense. The defense is trying to block the emails, as well as statements Holmes made to police and evidence seized from his car, computers and iPhone. At a pretrial hearing Friday, defense attorneys said the affidavits and court orders used to obtain the emails were so broad they swept up some emails that merely mentioned Holmes but weren’t sent to or from his accounts. Prosecutors said the requests had to be broad because investigators initially didn’t know if Holmes had accomplices. Investigators obtained Holmes’ emails from Google, Microsoft and the University of Colorado. Holmes had been a graduate student in neuroscience at the university’s Denver campus, but he had academic problems and dropped out before the shootings.

People • ‘Mockingbird’ author Lee suing museum MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — “To Kill a Mockingbird” author Harper Lee is suing a museum in her hometown of Monroeville to stop it from selling souvenirs with her name and the title of her Pulitzer Prize-winning book. The lawsuit, filed last week in federal court in Mobile, said the Monroe County Heritage Museum has traded on Lee’s fame without her approval and without compensating her. It seeks an unspecified amount in damages. “Every single statement in the lawsuit is either false, meritless, or both,” museum attorney Matt Goforth said Friday in an email. The lawsuit comes after Lee sought a federal trademark for the title of her book when it’s used on clothing. The museum opposed her application, saying its souvenir sales are vital to its continued operation. A ruling is over a year away.


Legislature takes charge of school grading system

Dog tax upheld by supreme court of Netherlands AMSTERDAM (AP) — The Dutch judges who ruled that taxing dog owners is discriminatory were apparently barking up the wrong tree. The Netherlands’ Supreme Court on Friday overturned a lower court’s decision that the southern municipality of Sittard-Geleen illegally discriminated against owners of man’s best friend by levying a dog tax. Opponents of the tax argued it was unfair to levy fees on them as opposed to people who don’t own dogs because the money raised goes into the general budget of municipalities. But the Supreme Court says municipalities are entitled to tax dog ownership because they have to pick up the bill for keeping public parks and streets clean. Government statistics show dog taxes raise well over 50 million euros ($68 million) a year total for the Dutch municipalities with such levies.



Wreaths are seen in front of the Alamo following a predawn memorial ceremony to remember the 1836 Battle of the Alamo and those who fell on both sides, in San Antonio in March. The

Texas General Land Office, which took control of the Alamo in 2011, approved a gun rights rally for Saturday, breaking with tradition that had kept demonstrations off the hallowed ground.

Alamo site for gun rally McALLEN, Texas (AP) — This is how to make another gun rally in gun-friendly Texas stand out: Tell everybody to bring their rifles and shotguns to the Alamo, the state’s most popular attraction, which sits downtown in the country’s seventh-largest city. And be sure to invite the state’s gun-friendliest politician, who also happens to hold the keys to the historic site. When the organizers of “Come and Take It San Antonio!” made plans for a display of long guns Saturday, the Alamo seemed like the ideal setting but the event is now drawing attention for breaking a century-long tradition against public demonstrations at the shrine of Texas liberty, where Col. William Travis and 200 Texas defenders famously died in a siege with the Mexican army in 1836. Such public displays have usually been relegated to an adjacent plaza.

Some are asking whether a pro-gun group has gone too far in extolling firearms rights, a feat considered near impossible in Texas. And whether a politician may have been too willing to accommodate them. “We certainly consider the Alamo our family cemetery,” said Lee Spencer White, president of the Alamo Defenders’ Descendants Association. “Our guys died there and we take it very seriously.” Inside the weathered stone mission church where the Texans made their last stand, “You instantly become reverent,” she said. “You feel the sacrifice and the emotions of those who died there. You can’t help but leave feeling moved and changed forever.” But rally organizers say the site fits their cause, protesting a San Antonio local ordinance they say impinges on firearms rights. “We’re doing this to

Retailers hope shutdown won’t play the Grinch NEW YORK (AP) — Will Washington be the Grinch who stole Christmas? After weeks of bickering between Congress and the White House, President Barack Obama on Wednesday signed into law a plan that ended a partial 16-day government shutdown and suspended the nation’s debt limit until early next year. But the measure, which comes just weeks ahead of the holiday shopping season, only temporarily averts a potential default on U.S. debt that could send the nation into a recession. Retailers hope that short-term uncertainty won’t stop Americans from spending during the busiest shopping period of the year, but they’re fearful that it will. “I am not nervous, but I am mindful,” said Jay Stein,

chairman of Stein Mart, a 300-store chain that sells home goods and clothing. “The biggest enemy of consumer confidence is uncertainty.” Retailers and industry watchers say Washington gridlock already has caused shoppers to hold back on purchases. The number of people going into stores nationwide dropped 7.5 percent for the week that ended Oct. 5 and 7.1 percent during the following week compared with a year ago, according to ShopperTrak, which measures foot traffic at 40,000 retail outlets across the country. Men’s clothier Jos. A. Bank Clothiers and furniture chain Ethan Allen said their customers cut back in recent weeks. And auto sales, which had been strong, trailed off last week, with experts blaming Washington lawmakers.

show that we’re not going to back down,” said Victoria Montgomery, a spokeswoman for Open Carry Texas, one of the groups behind the event. The gun groups organized the rally after a confrontation with San Antonio police two months ago. Police threatened to arrest several activists who were carrying their rifles outside a Starbucks. Texas law prohibits open carrying of handguns but has no similar restriction for long guns. The Texas penal code, however, does bar display of a “deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm.” A San Antonio ordinance restricts firearms in public parks or at political rallies. “We are going to fight for our rights, and it’s not OK for police to just say whatever they want and make up the rules as they go along,” said Montgomery.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The battle for control of Indiana’s education policy escalated Friday when top Republican lawmakers shifted calculation of school accountability grades for the 2012-2013 school year from the Department of Education to the Legislature’s bill-drafting shop. House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem David Long signed off on a request from Republican appointees to the State Board of Education. The board members crafted a letter Wednesday questioning why Superintendent Glenda Ritz has yet to release the A-F grades or teacher effectiveness ratings. The letter, which was obtained by The Associated Press, also requested that responsibility for compiling the rankings be shifted from the Department of Education to the Legislature’s nonpartisan analysis and bill-drafting arm. The move comes amid an overhaul of the grading formula following a grade-changing scandal involving former state schools chief Tony Bennett. Bennett resigned as Florida’s schools chief in August after The Associated Press reported he had overhauled Indiana’s grading formula to ensure a charter school founded by a top Republican donor received an A. It’s also the latest scuffle in what’s becoming a power struggle between Republicans and Ritz, the lone Democrat holding a statewide office. Since Ritz defeated Bennett last November, lawmakers have considered diluting her power on the board, a Bennett ally on the board has taken control of long-term planning for the group and Gov. Mike Pence created a second education agency charged with

shaping education policy along with job-training initiatives. The A-F grades have become increasingly important in recent years. They help determine teacher pay and school funding and whether schools that receive failing grades are turned over to private operators. They also play a role in home sales as families weigh education rankings before deciding where to buy a house. The letter sent Wednesday expresses concern that the grades haven’t been released yet this year. “As members of the Board, we send this letter out of concern for ensuring that school accountability information is provided to Indiana schools, educators, and families in as timely a manner as possible. We are now mid-way through October, and the Department has yet to report 2012-2013 A-F grades or release teacher effectiveness ratings as required under Indiana law,” the group wrote. Ten members of the 11-member board, all appointed by either former Gov. Mitch Daniels or Pence, signed the letter. Ritz is on an education trip to China. Though the letter was emailed to Ritz and other board members Thursday night, DOE spokesman David Galvin said her staff did not see the letter until Friday. “The Pence-appointed state board of education and its staff is insistent on perpetuating a rushed, inaccurate, and untested labeling system for our schools,” Galvin said. Friday’s move effectively places the running of data through Bennett’s schoolgrading formula with the LSA, but leaves the final say on issuing grades with the state board.

When I went into labor at 26 weeks, it was the scariest time of our lives. By the grace of God, our little Max was born breathing weighing in at 2 lbs., 2 oz. and 14 in. long. The next three months are a blur to us now, so many ups and downs, but day-by-day Max grew stronger. On April 9 ,2013, 13 days before my due date, we got to bring our little miracle home! He was still on monitors and oxygen, but he was home! As scary as the last 8 months have been, we look at him now and all of the progress he has made, we would go through it all over again to have him here with us. We would like to thank our family, friends and some kind people we don’t even know for the generous donations, kind words and wonderful prayers! We could not have gotten through this without you all! We are so overwhelmed by the love and generosity from everyone and we can’t thank you all enough!

POWER LINE: Authority’s new member takes seat FROM PAGE A1

board to find the additional $2 million it would cost to bury the lines. The board has been told the power company is reluctant to place lines underground because of the time it takes to repair buried lines during outages. Another resident urged the board to lean on AEP to find another path for the lines. The board said it will readdress the topic once AEP responds to questions raised by residents at Thursday night’s meeting. In other business Friday, new board member Jesse Myers was sworn in and served at his first meeting.

Myers replaces former board president Jim Mason, who died in June. Myers’ term runs through Dec. 31, 2014. Myers said he was “absolutely honored” to take over for Mason, who he knew well. Myers served on the Auburn Parks Department board for a decade and is a former Auburn Plan Commission member. He is a longtime employee of Dana Corp. in Fort Wayne. “I don’t know much about aviation, but I’ve served on other boards for the city of Auburn. I’m just happy to absorb everything and see where it goes from here,” Myers said. The board also:

• learned from engineer Paul Shaffer that the airport’s runway has turned 20 years old and, considering it had a 20-year design life, the airport should begin planning for rehabilitation. Shaffer said the runway is serviceable now, thanks to efforts by the airport staff to maintain it, but it has reached a point where deterioration will be rapid. Shaffer said the airport’s upcoming capital improvement plan should include a runway rehabilitation. • heard that the airport has finished paying for its terminal rehabilitation project, completed this summer for $288,000.

LEAK: Detective became suspicious about fuel FROM PAGE A1

ative,” Goldblatt said. “They’ve been very good at keeping Rich (Hackler) informed.” Lauer uncovered the situation in early spring. He noticed that his department’s fuel budget was approximately 60 percent expended through the first fiscal quarter, when it should have been around 41 percent. Curious as to why the county had used approximately 3,000 extra gallons, Lauer began an investigation. Minor excavation work done at that time uncovered a crack in an elbow in a fuel line. Gasoline leaked only when the pump was working, said Roger Powers, DeKalb County emergency management director. During the investigation, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department Detective Adam Friedel became suspicious that the amount of fuel being billed to the department seemed excessive. Friedel said a driver from the fuel supplier was

interviewed. That driver is no longer employed by the supplier, he said. Friedel declined to comment on the matter further, since it is an ongoing investigation. There is a potential for criminal charges and eventually an arrest, Lauer said. “We believe we were invoiced for fuel we never received,” Lauer said. He also declined to comment on the active criminal investigation. A decision was made this summer to take the above-ground tank out of service, since it was old and exact quantitites of fuel deposited could not be accurately measured. Some 700 gallons of fuel remained in the tank, and Powers said the county wanted to use as much of it as possible before having it removed. Eventually, Environmental Remediation Services of Fort Wayne was hired to clean the tank so it could be certified clear of any contaminants and eventually scrapped.

All YOUR local events

When ERS began to dig around the tank in early October, it began to uncover pockets of standing gasoline. A buried fuel tank near the overhead tank was installed in 1950, Powers said. That tank was filled with concrete and sealed by the county in 1990. When crews unearthed the older tank, they discovered it had corroded holes in it, with concrete protruding from some of the holes. The tank was eventually removed. “That told me there were holes when they filled it,” Powers said. Part of the county’s $30,000 in expenses related to the leak involves transportation of 400 tons of contaminated soil to a landfill near Claypool in Kosciousko County, Powers said. A one-day project turned into something more. “We thought it was going to be a minor cleanup,” Powers said. “We didn’t know we were going to run into this other problem with the underground tank.”

AVILLA — “When I walk on Omaha Beach, I feel them, you know. I see them. I can’t explain fully this feeling I have.” Carol Duvall, a resident of the small French village of Vierville-Sur-Mer overlooking Omaha Beach, will never forget the thousands of American soldiers who stormed the Normandy beach on June 6, 1944, and the sacrifices they made to liberate her country from Nazi tyranny. She’s embarked on a crusade to meet and personally thank as many surviving D-Day veterans as she can, to remember the fallen and to memorialize them in stone through her French association known as Deep Respect. Volunteers have built a 300-foot-long stone wall outside the French town of St. Lo dedicated to the U.S. Army 29th Infantry division that came ashore on Omaha Beach and liberated the strategically located town about a 30-minute drive from the beach. Duvall’s home lies only about four blocks from the beach. “I have 14 godsons in the American Cemetery. On Christmas and June 6 each year, I place flowers on those graves, and I place one flower on the marker for the unknowns,” she said. Last August, D-Day veteran Gene Cogan, 90, of Avilla, a member of that same 29th Infantry division, traveled to ViervilleSur-Mer with a 13-pound, 12-inch by 12-inch plaque for placement in the wall. On the plaque were the names of Cogan and three of his buddies who served in the 3rd platoon, Company D, 115th regiment of the 29th Infantry division. Deep Respect volunteers placed the plaque in the wall last month. The wall is about two miles from where Cogan was wounded after surviving the Omaha Beach landing in the second wave of troops to come ashore. More than 3,000 American soldiers were killed or wounded on Omaha Beach. “We will never forget what they did for us,” said Duvall, who was in Avilla last week visiting Cogan. They met in 2004 when he visited Vier-Sur-Mer during the 60th anniversary of D-Day celebrations. In February 2012, he returned to the village for a ceremony commemorating the restoration of a monument overlooking Omaha Beach, first erected shortly after the end of the war. Deep Respect’s goal is to restore as many of the old monuments dedicated to U.S. troops as it can before they crumble and disappear. Duvall was instrumental in Cogan receiving the French Legion of Honor in September 2012, the highest honor the French government can bestow on those who have achieved remark-


D-Day veteran Gene Cogan, 90, of Avilla, welcomed Carol Duvall of Vierville-Sur-Mer, France, to his home his week. She was instrumental in seeing that Cogan received the French Legion of Honor last year for his services to liberate France in World War II.

able deeds for France. Duvall said her respect for D-Day veterans such as Cogan started with her grandfather, who fought for France on the western front in World War I. “His life was saved by the American Red Cross, and he was forever grateful,” she said in her broken English. Vierville-Sur-Mer became a supply depot for the 29th Infantry division. Duvall’s father was 10 years old when he was befriended by GIs stationed there. “They gave him food and gifts and rides in Jeeps, cared about him. I grew up hearing these stories about how nice the GIs were to him, and he still talks about it,” she said. Duvall has been forever grateful. Duvall has traveled to America numerous times attending veterans reunions. She’s an honorary member of several veterans organizations such as the U.S. Army 1st Infantry division, 4th Infantry division and 29th Infantry division, and in August last year she attended the reunion of veterans from 16th regiment of the Big Red One, the Army’s famous unit that helped liberate much of France in World War II. She talked to Ray Nance, the last surviving member of the Bedford Boys, two years before he died. Twenty-two of 30 GIs from the town of Bedford, Va., population 3,200, died in the first day of carnage on Omaha Beach, the greatest one-day sacrifice in the war by any one community. The Bedford Boys’ story came to symbolize the sacrifice made by Americans during the D-Day invasion. She also joined with a 29th Infantry division veteran she met to watch the 1998 Academy-award winning movie “Saving Private Ryan,” depicting the Omaha Beach invasion. “He was a medic on Omaha Beach and started crying while watching the invasion scene. We stopped the video,” she said. Duvall took his hand and kissed it. Cogan said he won’t

• watch the movie. Debris from the Normandy invasion 69 years ago still washes up onto the beaches, said Duvall. Next month she will join a French TV crew in England filming a documentary on D-Day and interviewing British D-Day veterans. “We should never forget what they did. These were just boys, 18-19-year-olds,” she said. “I met a D-Day American Navy veteran who was 15 years old then. He said his sister signed his paper and lied about his age.” Cogan said he watched Duvall corner the French defense minister at the 60th anniversary ceremony and demand something be done to remember the Americans’ sacrifices for France. Duvall has met another Omaha Beach veteran who lives in Avilla and wants to see him recognized by the French government. Bob Harding, 88, was an engineer with the 4th Brigade in the 29th Infantry Division. She is working to secure the French Legion of Honor for Harding. Duvall, a traveling manicurist with three children and one grandchild, said if she were retired, seeking recognition of aging veterans is what she’d do full-time. “She’s Joan of Arc,” Cogan said about Duvall’s campaign: Duvall gave him a funny look. She didn’t understand. “Joan of Arc,” he said again. “Oh, Jeanne d’Arc. She was burned at the stake. I don’t think I’d like that,” she said, and they both laughed.

FRIDAY’S GAME ST. LOUIS ....................................3 WINNIPEG ..................... (SO) 4

Briefly • Cardinals advance to World Series

WATERLOO — Carroll scored on its first four plays from scrimmage Friday night against DeKalb. That will help any team win rather easily. An undermanned DeKalb team, winless on the season, went up against Carroll, ranked 11th in Class 6A and a team that features current Purdue University commit Drue Tranquill. The Chargers laid the hammer down on the Barons quickly and efficiently, scoring 44 points in the first quarter alone en route to a 79-7 victory at Cecil E. Young Field. Carroll led DeKalb (0-9, 0-7 Northeast Hoosier Conference) 65-0 at halftime as the game went to a running clock in the second half. “You don’t tell your kids not to score or not to play hard, but you do tell your kids to maintain

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Carlos Beltran and the Cardinals stunned Clayton Kershaw with a four-run third inning, rookie Michael Wacha was again magnificent on the mound and St. Louis advanced to its second World Series in three seasons by roughing up the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-0 in Game 6 of the NL championship series Friday night. Matt Carpenter sparked St. Louis’ big inning with a one-out double on the 11th pitch of his at-bat. Beltran singled him home and the Cardinals quickly removed all the suspense surrounding a team that squandered a 3-1 series lead in the NLCS last fall against San Francisco. After losing Game 5 in Los Angeles, the Cardinals turned to Wacha once again. The right-hander was even better in outpitching Kershaw for the second time this series.

ANGOLA — Ball State University’s football team stopped at Trine University Friday afternoon for a final walk-through practice on its way to Kalamazoo, Mich., for this afternoon’s Mid-American Conference contest with Western Michigan. A practice stop at Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium has been part of the Cardinals’ routine on the way to Michigan MAC schools (Western, Central and Eastern) in all three seasons under coach Pete Lembo. Ball State has an alumnus in Thunder athletic director and head football coach Matt Land. “We’re very, very grateful and appreciative of Coach Land to open up Trine’s doors to us,” Lembo said. “We’re big believers in consistent routines. They have great facilities here. The visiting locker rooms here will be as good as we’ll be in tomorrow. “This is a good halfway point for us to get off the bus and stretch our legs. It minimizes our concerns of having to do our preparations at opposing stadiums. But it’s more about breaking up our 4-hour trip.” It has only taken seven games for the Cardinals to be bowl-eligible as they are 6-1 overall, including 3-0 in the MAC. This is their best start since 2008 and only the fourth time they have started 6-1 or better since 1977. Ball State has won eight straight MAC games and 12 out of its last 13 regular season games dating back to last season. During Lembo’s tenure in Muncie, the Cardinals have been bowl-eligible in all three seasons and are also 12-3 in games decided by a touchdown or less.



second half of Friday night’s conference game in Garrett.

Railroaders fall to Heritage BY AARON ORGAN

GARRETT – That “it’s a game of two halves” adage bit the Garrett football team Friday night. Garrett intercepted Heritage quarterback Branson Dossen four times in a could-do-no-wrong first half and led 21-0 early in the second half, then gave up 26 unanswered points to the visiting Patriots in the second half in a demoralizing 26-21 loss. The Railroaders close the regular season with a 4-5 record, while the Patriots finished at 6-3.

“It was two games, really,” said Heritage coach Dean Lehrman. ”We came out flat as a pancake and, I don’t know. We had some stirring speeches at halftime by some seniors and … I don’t know what happened, somebody awoke the spirit in the Patriots.” Garrett coach Chris DePew couldn’t have asked for a better start. On Heritage’s third play from scrimmage, Garrett cornerback Cole Wilson jumped in front of a Dossen pass for an interception, and four plays later, Railroaders quarterback

BUTLER — Possibly the best thing about Friday’s football game between the Eastside Blazers and Prairie Heights Panthers is both teams get a fresh start next week when sectional play begins. Each team committed four turnovers and combined for 130 yards in penalties in a game won by the Blazers, 34-13. There was a 20-minute delay

a tough situation, but our kids played extremely well.” Carroll (7-2, 5-2 NHC) put the game to rest before fans had a chance to sit down. On the first play from scrimmage, Tranquill raced 59 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 Carroll lead. After a DeKalb three-and-out, it was his brother Justin Tranquill’s turn, going 49 yards for the score and a 14-0 advantage. Following another Baron three-and-out, the Chargers went to the passing game with quarterback Chandler Boggs finding Zac Edgar for a 53-yard TD and a 21-0 lead. On Carroll’s next possession, Justin Tranquill took the first carry 38 yards for a touchdown and a 28-0 Carroll lead a little over halfway through the first quarter. The Chargers still weren’t done in the opening period. Drue Tranquill scored on a 30-yard run

And Carroll took advantage of the free kick, with Alex Anzeveno catching it and running 73 yards for a touchdown and a 44-0 Carroll advantage. “Carroll is a great team. I give them a lot of props. We just didn’t really show up (Friday night) to play and that was very evident — simple as that,” said DeKalb coach Mike DeVos. “The big thing is, this team has

never and will never quit. And that’s the bottom line. Between the coaching staff and the players, all of them. Play ’til the end.” Justin Tranquill would add a 69-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, Cory McCray notched a 5-yard score and Blake Schumacher returned an interception 30 yards for a touchdown to push Carroll’s lead at halftime to 65-0. Carroll added two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter, a 1-yard run by Jordan Chitwood and a 2-yard score by Connor Luth. DeKalb did salvage something positive on its last possession when Blake Purdy took a handoff up the middle 47 yards for a touchdown. Carroll outgained DeKalb 497-54, 444 of those coming on the ground. The Tranquill brothers both had big nights, with Justin finishing with 156 yards on three carries, and Drue 120 yards on three carries. Purdy led the Barons with 44 rushing yards. Chad Ramus added 15 yards on the ground. The 79 points scored by Carroll is a new school record. The previous mark was 70, scored earlier this year against Norwell.

The goal now is for the Barons to put this game in the past and focus on Friday’s sectional matchup with Angola. “Be ready to play football,” Devos said. “You got to come out and want it. It’s as simple as that. If you want the game, we’ve got a good shot.”


sions and had short punts on two others, giving the Panthers quality scoring opportunities. Prairie Heights was unable to capitalize when an apparent touchdown pass from Kyler West to Corey Johnson was ruled out of bounds. Later, the Panthers gave up the ball on downs inside the Blazer five, and threw an interception on another drive that began in Eastside territory. The Blazers, who had just four first downs for the game, gave themselves some breathing room with two touchdowns in the final three minutes of the half. The first score was set up when Dean caught a Conner Dove pass for 78 yards to the Panther three, scoring three plays later with 1:29 left. After a Prairie Heights three-and-out, in large part due to a bad snap that cost the visitors 11 yards, Eastside got the ball back at its 36 with 22 seconds to go. That proved to be just

enough time, as Dove found a streaking Ty Lockhart along the Eastside sideline for a 52-yard touchdown pass three plays later. The Panthers reached the end zone late in the third quarter as West scored from the one after a personal foul penalty against Eastside gave the visitors the ball at the Blazer 31. Early in the final quarter, Eastside’s Kadis Renier broke loose for an 87-yard touchdown run. The Panthers answered with a one-yard run by Johnson with 3:16 to play. A booming punt downed at the Panther one set up the game’s final score, when Eastside’s Ryan Liechty recovered a fumble in the end zone with 20 seconds to play. Renier led Eastside with 143 yards rushing on six carries. Dove completed 3-of-7 passes for 133 yards and a touchdown. Dylan Stayner led Prairie Heights with 63 yards rushing on 13 attempts. West completed just 4-of-17

CARDS: Wenning leads Ball State from QB spot FROM PAGE B1

The biggest highlight for Ball State so far this fall is a 48-27 triumph at Atlantic Coast Conference program Virginia on Oct. 5. “It was a tremendous win for our program and our university,” Lembo said. “The positive exposure for our program has been terrific.” Ball State received nine votes in the Harris Poll this week. The Cardinals are led by senior quarterback Keith Wenning, who has completed 60.5 percent of his passes (164-271) for 2,301 yards with 15 touchdown passses compared to just five interceptions. He has a strong trio of receivers in junior Willie Snead (51

receptions, 867 yards, 7 touchdowns), sophomore Jordan Williams (40-603, 5 TDs) and senior Jamill Smith (34-477, 2 TDs). “Keith and our receivers have really been clicking,” Lembo said. “We’re in year three, and our offensive skilled players have been the same. We do have a new offensive line. “We’ve had an opportunistic defense. We’ve had more turnovers in seven games this season (18) than we had the entire last season (14). It’s still a work in progress, but we’re slowly steadily getting better. In our win over Kent State last week (27-24 on homecoming in Muncie), we had a terrific goal line stand and our defense gave us a chance to win.”

Ball State will try to move forward against a rebuilding Western Michigan team that is 0-7 under first-year coach P.J. Fleck, the youngest head coach in the Football Bowl Subdivision at age 32. “I would say this. Every situation is different. Every coach has his own vision of building a program. Coach Fleck has a vision and his administration and fan base are behind him,” Lembo said. “They’ve had a tough situation with injuries. But there is talent there and they have one of the best defenses in the conference. “But we have to worry about ourselves. If we are not at our best, anybody can beat us. And we’ve been in close games before with Western.”

GARRETT: Railroaders blow 21-point advantage FROM PAGE B1

another interception by Wilson, as was Heritage’s next possession, stalled by another Vandezande interception of Dossen, keying a 14-0 lead heading into the half. Garrett pushed the score to 21-0 on its first possession of the second half, when Follett laid a ball just over a defender and into the arms of a sprinting Wilson for a 44-yard touchdown. After that, Heritage took over. On its ensuing possession, Dossen capped a 6-play, 69-yard drive with a 2-yard punch in. Garrett then fumbled the kickoff, giving the Patriots a 1st-and-10 at the Railroaders’ 24-yard line, and two plays later 5-7 tailback Justyn Hart snaked

through the Garrett defense and scored from 12 yards out. Hart would score again to open the fourth quarter to push Heritage to within a point of Garrett before the Railroaders’ front blocked the Patriots’ extra point attempt. The momentum was quickly lost. Garrett went 3-and-out on its next possession and Heritage responded with a 7-play drive closed by a Hart 7-yard touchdown run with 1:24 left to play. Follett was intercepted on the Railroaders final drive. Follett led Garrett with 116 yards on 8-for-15 passing with two touchdowns against one interception. He added a team-high 88 yards rushing. Wilson caught four balls for 69 yards and a score. Hart led Heritage with

218 yards rushing on 21 carries and the three touchdowns. Dossen finished 6-for-18 passing for 83 yards and the four interceptions, and added 63 yards on the ground. DePew said his team struggled to tackle in the second half and appeared to lose some aggressiveness as Hart ran around tacklers. He voiced disappointment in his team’s ability to close out games. “We got a team down, then we made a mistake or two and we let them climb back in,” said DePew. “It just wasn’t good enough. We’ve got to put the nail in the coffin when we’re up 21-0. We have to smell blood and go for it when it’s there. We have to, and we didn’t. We sat back, we coasted a little and we let them gain the momentum back. Good football teams don’t do that, teams that win games don’t do that. “If a kid throws four interceptions in the first half, you’re supposed to win that game,” said DePew. “If you’re up 21-0 in the second half, you’re supposed to win. You’re supposed to finish the game, and that’s not what we did. We let it slip through our hands.” The two teams meet again Friday in Monroeville in the opening round of sectional play. DePew said his team must improve for next week’s when-it-matters rematch. He said he believes it is difficult to beat a team twice. Lehrman, on the other hand, said he isn’t sure whether the win will give his team important momentum or wake a giant. “That’s the $64,000 question,” said Lehrman. “It’s going to be difficult and there’s a lot of things to overcome. We’re going to have to go to Psychology 101 and work on our kids heads. We’ll be there, and I know Coach DePew’s troops will show up and be madder than a bunch of hornets. It’s going to be a game.”

Detroit Tigers’ Jhonny Peralta runs the bases during Game 1 of the American League championship series.

shortstop Jose Iglesias from Boston shortly before the suspension. Eligible for free agency after the World Series, Peralta returned for a three-game series at the Miami Marlins as Detroit closed the regular season. That didn’t leave him much time to prepare for any playoff games. He had gone to the Dominican Republic

to try to stay in shape during the suspension, then spent some time in the instructional league. As they closed in on their third straight AL Central title, the Tigers said they’d give Peralta a chance to earn a spot on the postseason roster. Because Iglesias had impressed as the new shortstop, Detroit said Peralta would have to

learn to play left field. “It was a cram course,” said manager Jim Leyland, who has used Peralta at shortstop and left field during these playoffs. “I don’t know how this is happening. I’m not sure he’s totally comfortable in left field yet. I’d be lying if I said I was totally comfortable with him in left field yet.” But with Miguel Cabrera hobbled and Prince Fielder struggling, the Tigers have needed offense in this postseason, and Peralta has provided it. In Game 4 of the AL division series against Oakland, Detroit trailed 3-0 and was facing elimination when Peralta connected for a three-run homer in the fifth inning — perhaps the biggest swing of the playoffs for the Tigers so far. Detroit went on to win that series in five games. Now the Tigers trail the AL championship series 3-2, with Game 6 at Boston set for Saturday. Peralta’s RBI single brought home the only run of Game 1 against the Red Sox. He’s hitting .367 this postseason, with four doubles to go along with that big home run. “Instructional league

SPORTS BRIEFS • Bears’ Tillman, Martellus Bennett questionable LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman and tight end Martellus Bennett are questionable for Sunday’s game at Washington. Both were limited in practice on Friday because of knee problems. The Bears elevated linebacker Jerry Franklin to the active roster from the practice squad and placed middle linebacker D.J. Williams on injured reserve. Williams, signed in the offseason to help replace Brian Urlacher, ruptured his left pectoral muscle tendon against the New York Giants on Oct. 10.

NASCAR announces Nationwide schedule for 2014 TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — NASCAR announced a 33-race schedule for the 2014 Nationwide Series with virtually no changes from this year’s slate. The dates for Darlington and the first Texas race are being shifted to coincide with the Sprint Cup schedule announced this week. Also, the first Iowa race is being moved from June to May. The track lineup is the same as this season. There are 30 ovals and three road courses: Road America, Watkins Glen and Mid-Ohio.

Peralta gives Tigers a lift after suspension DETROIT (AP) — Jhonny Peralta is trying to make the most of a second chance with the Detroit Tigers that was far from guaranteed. The Detroit portion of Peralta’s career looked like it might be over when he was suspended 50 games on Aug. 5 following Major League Baseball’s investigation of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. Despite the long layoff, he’s been able to contribute in the postseason, saving the Tigers with a big home run in the division series and adding needed power to the lineup. Peralta’s return has raised the usual questions about doping in baseball and whether his punishment was harsh enough. The Tigers are happy to have him back, whether he’s at shortstop or in the outfield. “I think I have a new life, a new opportunity,” Peralta said. “It’s important, how Detroit gave me the opportunity to come back here. I appreciate everything.” Peralta was in the middle of a fine season when his suspension began. The Tigers had anticipated his absence, acquiring smooth-fielding

this. Businesses and individuals willing to spend some time with homeowners cleaning up and beautifying their homes without anything asked in return. Others are more than happy to share the bounty of their vegetable harvests or spread some of the beauty from their own gardens when they divide and split flowers, shrubs, and grasses. This willingness to share and lend a helping hand when needed is what I love about living in a farming community in the Midwest. My sister and my new brotherin-law live in Ann Arbor, Mich., and while they love living there with the hustle and bustle of the city and the convenience of close stores and things to do, I only enjoy visiting larger cities for a few hours at a time, and then

relish in the return to my home to do chores in the mornings and evenings. To me it is always a form of stress relief to work in my gardens, harvest vegetables I have worked all summer for, feed a new batch of baby calves, milk “my” goats by hand, and even catch one of my roosters (I have two that, for some unknown reason, I decided to name) to have him sit in my lap. Each day brings a new adventure and laugh with antics the animals are up to. From our young dog herding her chickens each night to their roosts, to going on an egg hunt every night looking for our three dozen eggs the hens are laying, to putting in a hard day’s work baling and unloading wagon upon wagon load of hay or straw.

The country life and values are something I grew up with, and I hope to one day to instill those same values in my stepchildren and children of my own. I would just like to leave you with this quote for the week: “You know rural Americans are special people. Their labor puts food on the table and gas in our tanks. Their service in the military sets a powerful example of leadership, honor, and sacrifice (16 percent of our population is rural, but 40 percent of our military is rural). Their spirit of unity inspires us all.” — Tom Vilsack, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. ELYSIA RODGERS is the agriculture and natural resources director for the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service in DeKalb County.

Pumkin growers report good crop WEST LAFAYETTE — Indiana pumpkin producers overall were happy with production yield and prices this year, even with “two seasons” of drastically differing weather during the summer, a Purdue University plant pathologist says. Dan Egel said it was an average year for pumpkin production, with the first half of the season wet and the second half dry. “The first half of the summer was good for providing moisture for the pumpkins, and most pumpkins are not irrigated,” Egel said. “In the second half of the season, some of the pumpkins on well-drained land lost yield because of the dry weather.” The wet weather brought disease problems to some pumpkin fields, particularly Phytophthora blight, which can kill plants and cause

fruit rot. The disease largely was held in check, however, when the weather turned dry. Consumers should not have a problem finding good-quality Indiana pumpkins. Egel said that when picking out a pumpkin, shoppers should look for one that doesn’t have any soft spots, which could lead to rot. They can do that by running their hands over the pumpkin to feel for them. A healthy pumpkin’s stem should be as thick and green as possible, rather than thin and brown. A green stem indicates a fresher pumpkin; a brown stem indicates the pumpkin was harvested too long ago. “All pumpkins are unique,” Egel said. “Don’t be afraid to buy a pumpkin with an odd shape or bumpy exterior. If you like the way it looks, take it home.”

WEST LAFAYETTE — Purdue University researchers are leading an effort to develop a nationwide, unified system for storing and making available to the public the abundance of research data that could help the agricultural industry and policymakers not only now but also many years in the future. Sylvie Brouder, a professor of agronomy, and five other Purdue agricultural and library sciences faculty and staff members organized a meeting in Potomac, Md., Oct. 10-11 to identify concrete steps for developing an online system for open-access agricultural data. A statement on the challenges and opportunities from the perspectives of workshop participants is being composed.

Grain handling specialist offers tips for protecting stored grain is being loaded into a bin, farmers need to use loading methods that minimize broken kernels and fine material and remove foreign material. Leaving broken kernels, fines and foreign material can make stored grain more susceptible to insect infestation, mold and spoilage because it reduces initial grain quality and aeration efficiency. According to Purdue Extension’s Agricultural Safety Program, out-of-condition grain is the most frequent cause of grain entrapments and engulfment. “Cleaning grain and coring the bin to remove fines, leveling binned grain and using appropriate drying and handling methods all reduce broken kernels and fines, and reduce the chance you will need to enter the bin when you unload the grain,” Ileleji said. • Aeration: This is the method of cooling grain with ambient air after drying it to decrease insect activity and mold development. Growers need to run bin fans to reduce grain temperature to below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and maintain cool temperatures into the late spring and summer. Using exhaust vents also will help control condensation on the inside roof and headspace walls of grain bins. • Monitor: Farmers need

WEST LAFAYETTE — The lowest corn prices in recent years mean farmers are likely to store a large portion of the crop on the farm into the late spring or summer of 2014, a Purdue Extension grain handling specialist says. Anytime growers decide to put corn into storage, and especially when they plan to store it for several months, they need to manage the grain properly to keep it from spoiling. That includes drying corn to a safer moisture level when it comes out of the field and then properly cleaning, loading, aerating and monitoring it. “This will require adequately drying to 14 to 14.5 percent for long-term storage,” Klein Ileleji said. “Think of grain in the bin as cash in the bank. Without good management, this cash can go out of condition, quickly eroding your investment.” Ileleji offered some tips for farmers to keep their grain in top shape: • Sanitation: Growers need to remove all of the food sources and harboring spots for rodents and insects around their storage facilities. This includes cleaning up grain spills and mowing surrounding vegetation. It also means cleaning handling equipment, including augers, cleaners and dryers, at the end of each use. • Loading: When grain

to monitor their stored grain at a frequency determined by the initial grain quality, moisture content, temperature and whether there has been extreme weather. The higher the ambient temperature, the more frequently bins should be checked. In fall, spring and summer, they need to be checked every 1-2 weeks. In winter, that can be reduced to once a month. When checking stored grain, growers with temperature cables should monitor for gradual temperature increases over time, rather than absolute temperature. If there are no temperature cables or CO2 sensors available, Ileleji said the smell of spoilage when fans are running is a good indicator that there’s a problem. “Keep detailed records with dates and what was monitored,” he said. “Remember, it is the trends in data that help diagnose a problem and not the data collected at a given time.” Purdue Extension offers a grain management bulletin through The Education Store. The two-page publication, Maximizing Grain Quality and Profits, (ID-207) can be downloaded for free, online, at It offers information about post-harvest integrated pest management strategy to preserve grain quality.





Longing to be a victim These days, being seen as a victim can be useful. You immediately claim the moral high ground. Some people want to help you. Lawyers and politicians brag that they force others to help you. This turns some people into whiners with little sense of responsibility. Joe Biden’s niece was arrested recently for throwing a punch at a cop. The New Post says she’s addicted JOHN York to alcohol and pills, but rather than take responsibility for STOSSEL her actions, she blamed them on the “pressure she faces” because her uncle is vice president. Give me a break. America was founded by people who were the opposite of victims, by people with grit. Overcoming obstacles is the route to prosperity — and happiness, too. I had to overcome stuttering to work as a TV reporter. Had today’s disability laws existed when I began work, would I have overcome my stuttering Despite improved problem? medical care and the Maybe not. I might have workforce’s dramatic demanded shift from physical my employer “accommoto mental labor, the date” my number of Americans disability by providing claiming disability keeps me a job growing. that didn’t demand being on-air. Now that the laws exist, it’s no coincidence that more Americans say they are disabled. Tad DeHaven of the Cato Institute writes that this is part of a disability-industrial complex: collusion between specialty law firms, doctors vouching for applicants with dubious claims and federal administrative law judges awarding benefits. It changes the way people calculate their options. Despite improved medical care and the workforce’s dramatic shift from physical to mental labor, the number of Americans claiming disability keeps growing. You start to feel like a sucker if you’re not one of them. On my TV show, DeHaven said today even poor parents “try to get their kids on psychotropic medications in hopes of qualifying for a check that goes to Dad and Mom.” Since the 1980s, there has been a 300 percent increase in disability claims for hard-to-prove illnesses like back pain, stress and other “non-exertional restrictions.” Over the past two decades, the number of people receiving Social Security disability benefits grew from 4 million to 11 million. “It’s like any other government program,” says DeHaven. “You start off with good intentions and then it becomes something that it was never supposed to be.” We all want to help the genuinely disabled, but a wide range of subjective ailments are affected by attitude. Labeling people victims, telling them they need help, teaches some to think like victims. Social scientists call that “learned helplessness.” Private charities are pretty good at separating real victims from malingerers. But government is not. Its one-size-fits-all rules encourage people to act like victims. Whether people have real physical ailments or just see the economic deck stacked against them, the most damaging thing say to them is: Give up. You can’t make it on your own. Wait for help. Pessimism changes what we think is possible. It shrinks our horizons. We in the media keep an eye out for people who are victimized. Sometimes that’s a valuable service. But it often means looking for victims when they really aren’t there. This makes reporters feel like heroes — noble sentries protecting the powerless. Even the newly crowned Miss America, Nina Davuluri, who sure seems like a winner by conventional standards, was portrayed as a victim in many news stories. Since she’s the first Miss America of Indian descent, some trolls on Twitter made racist remarks. But skeptical writer Gavin McInnes did a little digging. He found those racist Twitter users were almost certainly just irresponsible little kids. One of the media’s most quoted tweets, “You look like a terrorist,” was sent by a Twitter user with zero followers. If millions of people are familiar with that remark now — and some Americans grow up a little bit more frightened that they will be victimized — it will be largely because media hyped racism rather than because of the handful of racists themselves. America is full of success stories. But if we obsess over stories about victimhood, that is what we’ll get.

Letter To The Editor • Wasteful local projects illustrate national problem To the editor: It’s ironic as we resolve the debt ceiling and congressional budget battle (for now) that a benign story about Auburn street signs in Wednesday’s paper illustrates exactly what’s wrong with our top-heavy graft-laden system. The federal government apparently mandated that 6-inch street signs are not tall enough, and they need to be 9 inches tall with bigger letters. In Auburn alone, this costs the U.S. taxpayer a quarter of a million dollars, to say nothing of the $25,000 it costs the Auburn taxpayers. Have any of you ever driven through Auburn and thought to yourself that the road signs are too hard to see? If the city had received a $250,000 windfall, would anyone have voted to replace the perfectly good signs? And what about these new “push to walk” buttons at each intersection? Other than Grandstaff and Seventh, has anyone ever had a hard time crossing

the street at a traffic light in Auburn? How much did these cost the U.S. taxpayer? What about the 8-foot-wide sidewalk that only serves to eliminate trees and front yards? Federally funded? Multiply this across the tens of thousands of municipalities across the U.S., and you begin to see the cost in dollars of a government that is completely out of control and exceeding their constitutional authority.

OK, writers; it’s time for the annual novel exercise It’s dark, very dark. I stumble down the stairs and blindly grind beans for coffee. The sound is loud and begins to wake me up. I put the beans in the pot, add water and turn on the coffee pot. I head to the studio, turn on the lights, plug in the heater and open up the laptop. Yesterday’s words are written: villains, heroes, ladies in distress, shadows, windy roads, dark nights, or rag pickers. The first mug of coffee drowns out the last of the sleep and my fingers fly over the keyboard. I am lost in my story and after an hour my word count is over a thousand words. “Keep going,” I say to myself, “600 more words.” I continue and, with a flourish, finish the last hundred words. My words are saved and the story swirls in cyberspace waiting for the morrow. It is still dark outside. Good. I can now begin my regular day. My column, you ask? Could it be I have a paid job from The New Yorker? No and no! I am part of National Novel Writing Month which will begin November 1. The above narrative is how it will be on Nov. 1. I am going to write a novel in 30 days. The total word count by Nov. 1 will be 50,000 words. I did the math and that comes to writing 1,667 words per day. Actually if I do that I will have an extra 10 words, but that seems meaningless at this point. This is my third year in attempting to write the novel. I start prolifically, sitting in the studio with my long-sleeved black T-shirt that has a picture of an old typewriter on it. (I do wear it every morning

for good luck.) The first week is great and then somebody arrives on my front porch, or as I now say, under my lintel. I cannot pass up on conversation so there goes the night’s sleep. In the morning I hit the alarm too many times and there is no time for writing. But I can catch up. Right? So I miss one day. I just have to write 3,334 words the next day. A couple of years ago I wrote the story of “Windy Hill Farm” and actually got through that one. I made copies of the rough draft gave them to the boys LOU ANN and for Christmas. Last year I HOMAN- lost November after the first of writing. SAYLOR week Ah, but we come to the beginning of “NaNoWriMo” for this year, and I am ready to go. I even ordered two bracelets that say “30 Days 50K Words.” These bracelets have a 2GB USB attachment so I can carry my story with me everywhere I travel. (Beware if I am invited to your house as I might just take off that bracelet and get to work or read it to you!) The biggest problem is finding a writing partner. There are 900 participants (well there were last year) in Fort Wayne. On the sign up form I wrote Angola, Indiana and searched for a group near me. We are not easy to find as the site

tried to sign me up to countries in Africa. I found out Egypt has 3,512 writers, Kenya 226, or Tanzania 167. While it seems tempting to belong to the group in Tanzania, I would prefer to share my thoughts in my hometown. Can you see where this is going? I am putting forth an invitation for someone or several folks to join me in this project. The web site is easy to navigate and think how much fun we will have sharing our word count every day. Maybe we could have an evening or two of bringing our laptops together and writing as a group. Let me make it clear that this project is a free-write, letting characters write their own script. During the month there is no time for correcting, that can all come later. And you never have to share your work unless you want to. Why should you join me? Well, the first one to sign up will get my other bracelet (I ordered two!), you will enjoy early morning stars, and coffee tastes great in the predawn. Or how about this; you always wanted to write a novel, a memoir, or a story. If that isn’t enough, you can know that in our town someone else is writing under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. 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 • Remembering the space race An American original passed this month, a man who was a household name for a generation raised in an era when outer space was brought closer to earth and anything seemed possible. Scott Carpenter, one of NASA’s original Mercury 7 astronauts, died Thursday at age 88. He was the fourth American in space and second to orbit the globe after John Glenn, who at 92 is the only surviving member of the group that included Gordon Cooper, Gus Grissom, Wally Schirra, Alan Shepard and Deke Slayton.

Those who read the book or saw the movie “The Right Stuff” know the story of a handful of gutsy, daredevil test pilots who willingly became America’s first guinea pigs in the space race with the Russians. They were “Spam in a can” with no assurances of survival amid the breakneck advancements that hurtled them into the heavens. And in the case of Grissom and many others since, lives were indeed lost in the effort. It was a remarkable time in which a charismatic president welcomed a new era of modern marvels by promising to reach the moon within a decade, a bold challenge considering we had only begun to create the

intricate technological systems needed for such a mission. Yet our nation embraced such endeavors, from space travel to self-cleaning ovens, with an eye toward the future. … Fast-forward to today. We now see our nation locked in a death grip of political gridlock, unable to join hands on any issue, much less venture to new worlds. There is no rallying point like the space program to bring us together; our arguments these days are over earth-bound concerns like budgets, health insurance and life’s other necessities. Even then, we have few leaders with the vision to conquer new frontiers, mostly self-serving ideologues

eyeballing polls and the next election rather than the cosmos. If the space program was a validation of what we can do as a nation when the people and their leaders unite behind a common goal, today’s standoff in Washington reflects the opposite end of that spectrum. Godspeed to Astronaut Carpenter and his Mercury pioneers who went before him. They embodied the best of us then, and their brand of courage and daring would be a welcome antidote to our present-day torpor. In fact, a little more of the “right stuff” these days might just be the cure for what ails us. The Times, Gainesville, Ga.





Jailed dad loses contact with daughter’s mom DEAR ABBY: I am 20 years old and in jail. My ex-girlfriend recently had a baby. I left her during her pregnancy. We had been together for two years, but things just weren’t working. I told her I still wanted to be in my daughter’s life after she had the baby, but she left and went to North Carolina. After I was incarcerated, I lost contact with her. She said I can be a part of my daughter’s life only if we have a family and get back together. I’m willing to do that, but I won’t be out of jail for five more months, and I have no way to contact her. How do I go about it, Abby? — LOVES MY BABY GIRL DEAR LOVES: When your ex said what she did, she was using the baby to manipulate you into doing what she wanted. Because your relationship “wasn’t working,” I would caution you against having any more children with her.




DEAR ABBY: My kindhearted, loving motherin-law would do anything for me. She has lived in an in-law apartment attached to our home for 20 years. She and my father-in-law — God rest his soul — were a huge help when our children were

growing up. The kids are gone now, and my husband and I would like to sell our home and move to something smaller. Would it be awful of us to make her move? She is 88. She has a loud and adamantsounding voice, so it would not be in our best interest to have her move with us. — DAUGHTER-IN-LAW DEAR DAUGHTERIN-LAW: Yes, it would be awful. It almost appears you took advantage of her for baby-sitting purposes, but now that the children are grown, she is no longer useful. While it may not be “in your interest” to have her move with you, it may be extremely difficult for her to adjust to a new living situation at her age. DEAR ABBY is written by Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

People get PCL injuries when their knee is flexed (like when you are seated) and the large bone of the lower leg is hit hard. For example, a person might be seated in the front

seat of a car. If the car is in an accident and the person’s lower leg smashes into the dashboard, that could cause the injury. Usually, people with a sudden new PCL injury notice less of a problem with the knee than people with a new ACL injury, at least at first. Treatment of all PCL sprains should begin with RICE: • Rest the joint. • Ice the injured area to reduce swelling. • Compress the swelling with an elastic bandage. • Elevate the injured area. Your doctor may also recommend a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen, to relieve mild pain or swelling. Further treatment depends on the severity of your injury.

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: I injured my PCL playing football. How long will my recovery take? DEAR READER: Let’s start with some knee anatomy. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are two tough bands of fibrous tissue. The ACL is injured more often than the PCL, which is why many people have heard of the ACL but not the PCL. The ACL and PCL connect the thighbone (femur) and the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint. The ACL and PCL form an “X” pattern that stabilizes the knee against front-to-back and back-to-front forces. A PCL injury is a sprain — a stretch or tear of the ligament. PCL sprains are classified as follows. • Grade I: a mild injury

When you are released, she may come after you for child support, or if she applies for benefits in North Carolina, the state may do that. That would be one way of pinpointing where she is. If you can’t locate her any other way, you DEAR may have to ABBY hire a private detective when you afford Jeanne Phillips can one.

your knee may be splinted in a straight-leg position, and you’ll begin an intense rehabilitation program. Rehab gradually strengthens the muscles around the knee, supports the knee joint and helps protect the knee from re-injury. If you have a Grade III sprain and the PCL has been pulled away from the bone, it may have to be surgically reattached with a screw. If your PCL has torn completely, it can be surgically reconstructed. Full recovery can take from four months to a year. How long your specific injury lasts will depend on the severity of your PCL injury and your rehabilitation program. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.
