Zoeller defends law on abortion clinic INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Attorney General Greg Zoeller is arguing a federal judge should uphold a new law that would shut down Lafayette’s only abortion clinic. Zoeller said Wednesday the law reflects the will of Indiana citizens. Indiana lawmakers approved a series of new building requirements for clinics that dispense the RU-486 abortion pill. The law would force Planned Parenthood to shut down its clinic in Lafayette unless major upgrades were completed. Supporters of the new law say it’s needed to protect women’s health. Opponents call it an attempt to limit abortions. The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana sued over the summer seeking to block the new law before it takes effect Jan. 1.

Spooky strike at Healthy Halloween Fair Jeffrey Griggs, 3, throws a bean bag through a ghost frame Tuesday during the Healthy Halloween Fair at the DeKalb County 4-H Fairgrounds. His mother, Jessica Griggs of Avilla, is behind him at center. Hundreds of parents and children turned out Tuesday to enjoy games, a bounce house,

cider and popcorn. Local organizations such as the Waterloo Public Library and the Judy A. Morrill Recreation Center hosted booths with games. The event has been hosted by DeKalb Health hospital since the mid-1980s.

Stutzman backs food stamp change WASHINGTON — The Farm Bill Conference Committee met for the first time Wednesday, and U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, led a group of 27 House members urging the committee to keep farm policy and food stamp policy separate. Stutzman, of Howe, and his colleagues asked the committee to maintain separate reauthorization dates for food stamp and farm policy programs to ensure that each program receives separate consideration on its own merits in the future. “Washington is $17 trillion in debt, and taxpayers deserve an honest conversation about how Congress spends their money,”

Stutzman said in a news release. “Instead of passing trilliondollar spending packages that are Farm Bills in name only, we should consider food stamps and farm policy separately. That’s exactly what the House did earlier this year, and the Conference Committee shouldn’t reverse Stutzman this historic victory for transparency.” In the letter, Stutzman and other members wrote in part, “Our constituents deserve a Congress that thoughtfully and

separately considers the legislation that it passes. It’s just common sense. And in a historic move this summer, the House of Representatives did just that. For the first time in nearly 40 years, the House voted on and passed separate and substantive reform bills governing farm and food stamp policy. “Now that substantial reforms have been made, we request the Conference Committee adopt the separate reauthorization timelines, three years for food stamps and five years for farm policy, in order to ensure that these policies are debated and voted on apart from each other in the future. It’s time to do this right.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s embattled top health official declared herself accountable Wednesday for failures of the much-maligned health insurance website as a newly surfaced government memo pointed to security concerns that were laid out just days before its launch. Despite the problems, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius defended the health care overhaul, the signature legislative accomplishment of Obama’s first term. She said the website problems will be fixed by Nov. 30 and gaining health insurance will make a positive difference in the lives of millions of Americans. The website was still experiencing outages, even as Sebelius was testifying to the House Energy and Commerce Committee that “I’m responsible.” And she faced a new range of questions about an internal memo from her department that revealed the troubled website was granted a temporary security certificate on Sept. 27, just four days before it went live on Oct. 1. The memo, obtained by The Associated Press, said incomplete testing created uncertainties that posed a potentially high security risk for the website. It called for a six-month “mitigation” program, including ongoing monitoring and testing. Republicans opposed to Obama’s health care law are calling for Sebelius to resign. She apologized to people having trouble signing up but told the SEE ISSUES, PAGE A7

DeKalb show features less talk, more songs BY DAVE KURTZ

WATERLOO — Co-director Kent Johnson said DeKalb High School’s theater department always faces a good problem — too much talent. The dilemma becomes finding a play or musical with “enough parts to give our extremely talented students opportunities to shine,” he said. This fall, Johnson and his wife and co-director, Shelley, hit upon a new solution — a musical revue. “Beguiled Again” will take the DeKalb auditorium stage Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m., featuring 50 songs by legendary composers Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. Kent Johnson said last spring when DeKalb presented “Oklahoma!” by Rodgers and his second partner, Oscar Hammerstein II, he released that today’s high school students don’t know the music of great composers from the first half of the 20th century. That makes “Beguiled Again” an educational tool as well as a good show. “Rodgers and Hart were just fun,” Johnson said. “Hart’s lyrics have this great, turn-of-phrase wit about them. … The only one who compares is Cole Porter.” “Beguiled Again” moves

Library to focus on Lida Leasure AUBURN — The life and accomplishments of the first woman elected to public office in Indiana will be celebrated during a special program at the Eckhart Public Library, Nov. 16 from 3-4 p.m. Dr. Lida Leasure lived in DeKalb County with her husband, John, who owned the Auburn City Hardware store. More than 100 years ago, she was elected the first countywide school superintendent in Indiana and was a teacher, principal and superintendent of the Auburn City Schools. She played a key role in the founding of a public library in Auburn and was involved in the Women’s Christian Temperance Union and in literary circles. She was a published author, poet and speaker. Leasure died in 1931, and her husband followed in 1932. They are interred in the Auburn Mausoleum. A member of Leasure’s family has not lived in Auburn since that time, and now DeKalb County Historian John Bry has located her modern-day descendants. They will be welcomed back to Auburn at the Nov. 16 program. Those planning to attend the program are asked to RSVP at the library information desk, 925-2414, ext. 120. Refreshments will be served.

Fishing lure show a success FORT WAYNE — The National Fishing Lure Collectors Club seventh antique fishing lure show sold out hundreds of tables of wares Saturday. More than 300 people attended the event at at Don Hall’s Guesthouse and Convention Center. “This was by far the largest and most successful fall show we have had,” said organizer Bob King. “Of interest were the number of people who brought in old family lures looking for information on how old and where they were made. People were trying to find out if they were as old or older than they thought.” Lures as old as the early 1900s were taken to the show. King said it was a surprise to their owners, “who thought they came from grandparents — not great-grandparents.” While they brought items to be assessed, said King, “No one this year was interested in parting with their treasures.” The exception to this was the owner of a very early outboard motor, made in Muncie that sold for several hundred dollars. In 2014, Fort Wayne will host the National Fishing Lure Collectors Club National Convention. This is expected to bring over 600 members and their families into the area. When they convene, Fort Wayne

Is increased use of essential oils robbing from the earth? Dear EarthTalk: What’s the skinny on essential oils? I love them, but a friend told me they are no good for the environment. — Mary M., via e-mail Essential oils are more popular than ever for medicinal and therapeutic purposes as well as in fragrances and flavorings for food and drinks. Typically produced by harvesting and distilling large amounts of various types of plant matter, essential oils are in many cases all-natural and can take the place of synthetic chemicals in many consumer applications. But some wonder whether our fascination with essential oils is so good for the planet, now that their popularity has turned them into big business. “It often takes hundreds of pounds of plant material to make one pound of essential oil,” reports aromatherapist and author Mindy Green of GreenScentsations. com. She adds that it takes 50-60 pounds of eucalyptus to produce one pound of eucalyptus oil, 200-250 pounds of lavender for one pound of lavender oil, 2,000

pounds of cypress for a pound of cypress oil and as many as 10,000 pounds of rose blossoms for one pound of rose oil. Production of these source crops takes place all over the world and is often organized by large multinational corporations with little regard for local economies or ecosystems. “Growing the substantial quantities of plant material needed to produce essential oils results in a monoculture style of farming, with large swaths of land dedicated to a single species,” says Green. “These systems are most efficiently managed by intense mechanization, and irrigation is frequently used for optimal oil production of the plants.” “As global citizens we have not learned how to equitably distribute vital resources like food, and water resources are trending toward a crisis of the future,” adds Green, “so there are deep ethical concerns about devoting croplands to essential oils destined for use in candles, bath oils, perfumes, or lavish massage and spa purposes.” Green also warns that many essential oils are not produced from sustain-

NRA marks the sale of 1 millionth handbook copy FAIRFAX, Va. — The National Rifle Association has recently sold its 1 millionth copy of the NRA Guide to the Basics of Pistol Shooting. Known as the Basic Pistol handbook, the guide is a comprehensive resource on responsible pistol use and is the foundation of NRA’s popular Basic Pistol and FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation courses. First published in July 2009, the Basic Pistol handbook was written with the intent of becoming an at-home reference guide for gun owners. Topics included in the guide are basic firearm safety, storage options, range rules, target

scoring and basic fundamentals such as shooting positions, grip and aiming. The guide can be purchased both individually and as part of a NRA Instructor-led course from the NRA’s Program Materials Center.

able sources. “Some species are at risk, particularly those occupying marginal habitats such as dwindling tropical forests,” she reports, adding that the poverty-stricken in developing countries will harvest and sell whatever they can, in order to put food on their own tables. Cropwatch, a non-profit that keeps tabs on the natural aromatics industry, maintains a list of wild species threatened by the fast-growing essential oil trade. Of particular concern are essential oils derived from rosewood, sandalwood, amyris, thyme, cedarwood, jatamansi, gentian, wormwood and cinnamon, among others, as they may well be derived from threatened and illegally harvested wild plant stocks. Also, some essential oils must be treated as hazardous if spilled and should be kept out of sewers and local waterways. Mountain Rose Herbs, a leading retailer of essential oils, reports that if its tea tree oil spills, it should be absorbed with inert material and sealed it in a container before disposal at a hazardous waste collection


Some wonder whether our fascination with essential oils is so good for the planet, given that it can take hundreds if not thousands of pounds of plant material to make just one pound of an oil.

Nobel Peace Prize sends messages The Norwegian Nobel Committee on Oct. 11 announced its decision to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2013 to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The Hague-based organization, created in 1997 to implement the 1992 Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) to prohibit the production, storage and use of It is noteworthy that chemical weapons, the committee explicitly will receive $1.25 named the United States the million prize and Russia in stating in Oslo on Dec. 10, that certain states have the 117th failed to observe the anniversary of April 2012 deadline, Nobel Prize under the CWC, to founder Alfred destroy their arsenals of Nobel’s chemical weapons. death. The committee’s message is clear. It hopes that awarding the prize to the OPCW will accelerate global efforts to eliminate chemical weapons, which are relatively cheap and easy to produce and can indiscriminately kill or injure large numbers of people. It is noteworthy that the committee explicitly named the United States and Russia in stating that certain states have failed to observe the April 2012 deadline, under the CWC, to destroy their arsenals of chemical weapons. Both countries — which together possess some 95 percent of the global stockpile of chemical weapons — should move quickly to fulfill their responsibilities. The Nobel Committee decision will also exert pressure on six countries that have yet to become members of the CWC: Israel, Myanmar, North Korea, Egypt, South Sudan and Angola. Another message is the committee’s hope that the OPCW will complete its task of eliminating Syria’s chemical weapons by mid-2014, with the cooperation of both the Syrian government and rebel forces as well as the support of the entire international community. On Oct. 14, Syria, which is believed to have some 1,000 tons of chemical weapons, became the 140th country to join the CWC. Following widespread use of chemical weapons in World War I, the 1925 Geneva Protocol banned their usage in war but not their production or stockpiling. The United Nations General Assembly on Nov. 30, 1992, approved the CWC, which bans the production and storage of chemical weapons as well as their use. In August, more than 1,400 people were killed in a chemical weapons attack near Damascus. Under a U.S.-Russia deal, Syria must destroy its chemical weapons-filling equipment and production facilities by the end of November and eliminate its chemical weapons by mid-2014. OPCW workers are now inspecting and destroying Syria’s chemical weapons. This is an unprecedented mission as it is being carried out amid a brutal civil war. Government and rebel forces must let the OPCW team do its job in a safe and efficient manner. Japan should consider how it can help facilitate this vital work.

Letters To The Editor • DeKalb football will be stronger next season To the editor: Hello, I am a student at the DeKalb CHANGE Academy in Auburn. I have the opportunity to read The Star newspaper every morning and I do so. I like to keep up to date on my high school sports. And, as far as I can tell, my high school football team for DeKalb is not doing so hot this season. I have been to all the home games this year and it really makes me miss it. I’ve been playing football ever since I was in third grade. My freshman year at DeKalb I played football for the freshman team. We went 4-5 that season and I played fullback and middle linebacker. In ninth grade I was 5 foot, 8 inches and 185 pounds. I might not have been the biggest but I was the meanest on the field. Now I am almost a senior and I am 6 foot and 220 pounds. What I’m getting to is when I go to the football games and see who is playing this season, I see boys that are still bigger than me! They are monsters out there! This is my opinion on why we are not winning games. We have the talent, the speed, the muscle. We have the physical ability to go to state. But there is one missing key piece to the puzzle … DeKalb High School football needs the attitude, the spirit, the motivation to achieve greatness. It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog! DeKalb needs to work on the mental and emotional side of football. We need to teach them to be afraid of nothing. Determination equals domination. Play with heart and emotions. We need to treat every season like a war and every game like a battle. Each individual player needs to believe in himself. Just because that running back

doing their job. Now, thanks to our new director who apparently has too much time on her hands just by asking cameras to do her job, our “hometown” feeling has become her “big city” operation. We need to get, no, take back our pride and congratulate our drivers for a job well done while they still have a job. It is sad that the director and mechanics are driving routes every day. The word is out. No subs. Will be hard to come by under present conditions. I personally would not recommend being a sub to anyone I know under present conditions. I was transportation director for 15 years. I had trust in my drivers, no need for cameras to do my job. I filled many hats. I worked on buses, computer routing (with the help of Ed Benbow), scheduled field trips, plowed snow, drove roads to report bad road conditions to superintendent. I managed drivers. Did we have issues? Yes. I was a manager not looking for who I could fire next. For 15 years, two of us did the job that it now takes six of you to do. Seems Dylan Harmes wasteful. I’m proud of my record with DeKalb Auburn Central transportation.

is 6 foot, 4 inches, and 240 pounds does not mean you can’t lay him out! Fear no man, no matter what his size, for I will equalize. It’s been two years since I’ve been in pads. Football was taken from me because I made stupid decisions and mistakes. But I have learned from my mistakes. I will be back next season and I will be stronger than ever. I ask the community to not give up on DeKalb football because it is still alive and well in the veins of your boys. When I go back for my senior year and play varsity I’m going to show and teach those players to be mean and tough and play with emotion and heart. Teach them to play with kill-or-be-killed attitude and show no mercy! But still have discipline and sportsmanship. No more jukes and spines and twists. Next season it’s gonna be “Look out ’cause I’m gonna put my shoulder down and run you over.” Better be ready next season DeKalb football ’cause I’m coming for you and I’m gonna go to state and I’m gonna take you with me, if you like it or not!

Transportation department should trust bus drivers

Francis Dulle, Auburn Former transportation director 15 years

To the editor: What’s happening at DeKalb Central transportation? It appears several drivers have been given the opportunity to retire or be fired. It is sad when drivers are not trusted and the need to have cameras on drivers and monitors on speedometers to see if drivers are dotting their i’s and crossing their t’s. This is a school district that has many good drivers that have driven thousands of miles and have always been trusted for

DEKALB CENTRAL SCHOOLS transportation director Renee Dawson said her department has a roster of seven or eight substitute drivers. Dawson said she and the bus mechanics sometimes choose to drive routes when a substitute is needed at the last minute, because that makes it easier to stay on schedule. “I drive even when not needed,” Dawson said. “I can tell a lot about a route by driving it. I think it’s good to be out there doing what your people are doing. … Sometimes I choose to drive versus getting a sub.”

Indiana State Police offer Halloween safety tips


Parents and children will be out in full force tonight trick-or-treating and the Indiana State Police wants to remind parents to observe a few rules that will help make the evening fun and safe. • Costume tips: Keep costumes short to prevent trips and falls; try make-up instead of a mask that can obstruct a child’s vision; wear light colors or reflective tape on costumes. • Trick or treating:

Older children should trick-or-treat with friends and provide parents a route so the parents know where the children will be. Instruct children to stop only at familiar homes where the outside light is on; encourage children to travel on well-lighted streets; remind children not to enter the homes or cars of strangers; remind children to stay on the sidewalks when walking to and from different houses. • Treats: Remind children not to eat treats until they get home; check out all treats at home; only eat unopened candies and treats in original wrappers; inspect fruits or anything suspicious.

• Homeowners: Turn on front light to indicate your willingness to treat; consider bringing pets inside and keeping them away from visitors; distribute candies in their original wrappers or boxes.

Transportation plays a key role in nonemergency health care BY FLORA M. CASTILLO

The Affordable Care Act’s new health insurance exchanges have just opened for business. Lawmakers may differ about the best way forward for health reform. But they should all be able to agree that problems with transportation should not keep people from securing the care they need. According to the Federal Transit Administration, about 3.6 million Americans skip or delay nonemergency medical care every year because of issues with transportation. Their doctor’s office may not be conveniently reachable by public transit or they may have trouble transporting their entire family when child care is unavailable. Prevention is the key to a successful health care system. These missed appointments can

Guest Column • lead to the deterioration of a person’s medical condition and even greater health costs. More than half of these 3.6 million folks have limited financial resources, with household incomes of less than $20,000 a year. A number of them may be eligible for Medicaid but have trouble putting their coverage to use because they struggle to get to the doctor. Their limited mobility doesn’t just jeopardize their health it also exacerbates America’s health cost crisis. The FTA found that, compared to the general population, these 3.6 million Americans are more likely to suffer from chronic conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes.

Chronic diseases are responsible for 75 percent of U.S. health expenditures, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And if the people missing those appointments are on Medicaid, taxpayers shoulder the additional costs that come about when patients forego treatment and allow health problems to grow serious. Improving our health care system will therefore require improving Americans’ access to transportation. Investing more in public transit and coordinating existing transportation service providers are both critical. But money alone isn’t the answer. Policymakers should also take advantage of the services that local public transit agencies already offer. Examples for how to do so abound. Consider Cleveland’s Health-

Investing more in public transit and coordinating existing transportation service providers are both critical.

• Line service, which delivers patients and riders to the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals, among other destinations, every five minutes during the morning and afternoon rush hours. Such a system provides patients with convenient, direct access to their health care providers and increases the likelihood that they’ll make their appointments. Since July 2009, New Jersey has contracted with a broker to provide

NEMT to Medicaid beneficiaries. The broker receives an annual fee for each eligible patient. By working with county community transit systems and purchasing NJ Transit bus and rail tickets when appropriate, the broker has reduced costs per passenger trip. Over 15 percent of the 5.2 million Medicaid NEMT trips in 2012 were provided by public or county community transit. Collaborative efforts like these can go a long way toward helping Americans make their doctor’s appointments and thus stay healthy. FLORA M. CASTILLO is the former chairman of the American Public Transportation Association, a vice president at AmeriHealth Caritas and a Board Member at New Jersey Transit Inc.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Social Security benefits will rise 1.5 percent in January, giving millions of retired and disabled workers an average raise of $19 a month to keep up with the cost of living. The increase is among the smallest since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975, and reflects the fact that consumer prices haven’t gone up much in the past year. The annual cost-ofliving adjustment, or COLA, is based on a government measure of inflation that was released Wednesday. “Yea. Whoop-de-do,” said Lance Colvin, a retired office worker in Kirkland, Wash. “That’s my opinion.” Automatic COLAs were adopted in 1975 so that benefits for people on fixed incomes would keep pace with rising prices. Some advocates for older Americans, however, complain that the COLA

sometimes falls short, especially for people with high medical costs. Michael Hartzog of Charleston, S.C., said the small COLA will make it difficult to keep up with his wife’s medical bills. “We’ll probably need to reduce our spending even more,” Hartzog said. “I don’t know exactly how.” Hartzog, 63, is retired after working 38 years at the Social Security Administration in South Carolina. He said his federal pension and Social Security benefits are affected by the COLA. The COLA affects benefits for more than one-fifth of the country: nearly 58 million Social Security recipients, as well as benefits for millions of disabled veterans, federal retirees and people who get Supplemental Security Income, the disability program for the poor. Social Security pays

retired workers an average of $1,272 a month. A 1.5 percent raise comes to about $19. Benefits are based on lifetime earnings. The more you make, the higher your benefit — to a point. For someone who retired this year at age 66, the maximum monthly benefit is $2,533. That person will get a raise of about $38 a month. The amount of wages subject to Social Security taxes is also going up. Social Security is funded by a 12.4 percent tax on the first $113,700 in wages earned by a worker, with half paid by employers and the other half withheld from workers’ pay. The wage threshold will increase to $117,000 next year, the Social Security Administration said. Wages above the threshold are not subject to Social Security taxes.

Employee charged with stealing from law firm BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — A bookkeeper for a local attorney is accused of taking around $10,000 from her employer over the course of a year. Katherine C. Fulton, 32, of Angola, was arrested Tuesday on a warrant charging her with Class C felony forgery and five counts of Class D felony theft. She posted a $500 bond for her release from Steuben County Jail and will be arraigned at a later date. Fulton allegedly took funds from the business between May 4, 2012, and June 3, 2013. The investigation was prompted when another employee found

$2,300 in a bank bag in a box under Fulton’s desk and reported it to their employer, police said. Indiana State Police Detective Kevin Smith uncovered a series of fraudulent transactions, starting with a credit card Fulton allegedly obtained using her employer’s information. She allegedly racked up more than $1,000 in 23 transactions from May 4, 2012 through this year, including visits to a tanning salon, iTunes, a steakhouse, Meijer and a Southwest Airlines ticket on Jan. 27. In addition, Fulton made four ATM or debit card withdrawals totalling $1,900, court documents charge. From the office, Fulton

is accused of taking cash, several times in 2012 and four times in 2013, totaling $4,335. On three occasions, court documents say, Fulton wrote checks for non-existent services. Those checks tallied $1,250, allegedly written to Fulton Design and PC Repair. The case has been filed in Steuben Superior Court. Because Fulton had worked with the Steuben County Prosecutor’s Office through her position at the law firm, a special prosecutor, Tim Cain of LaGrange, has been assigned to the case. The Class C felony charge carries a prison term of up to eight years, and each theft count carries up to a three-year term.

Fed leaves interest rates low WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve says the U.S. economy still needs support from its low interestrate policies because it is growing only moderately. In a statement Wednesday after a policy meeting, the Fed said it would keep buying $85 billion a month in bonds to keep long-term interest rates low and encourage borrowing and spending. Yet the Fed seemed to signal that it thinks the economy is improving despite some recent weak data and uncertainties caused by the partial government shutdown. The Fed no longer expresses concern, as it did in September, that higher mortgage rates could hold back hiring and economic growth. And its statement makes no reference to the 16-day shutdown, which economists say has slowed growth this quarter. Some analysts said this suggests that the Fed might be prepared to slow its bond

purchases by early next year — sooner than some have assumed. “The tone was probably more positive on the outlook than most people expected,” said Jim O’Sullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics. Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, said he was struck by the absence of any reference to the shutdown. He called the statement “remarkable for what it omits rather than includes.” Ashworth said that if the Fed isn’t worried about the economic impact of the shutdown, it might be ready to reduce its stimulus as early as December. He still thinks a pullback is most likely early next year. But Ashworth said the Fed’s statement suggests that its timing may have shifted. Some economists noted that Congress’ budget fight has clouded the Fed’s timetable for tapering its bond purchases. Though the government reopened

Oct. 17 and a threatened default on its debt was averted, Congress passed only temporary fixes. More deadlines and possible disruptions lie ahead. If the government manages to avert another shutdown in mid-January, Dana Saporta, an economist at Credit Suisse, said, “We could see a taper as soon as the Jan. 29th meeting.” But she added that a continued budget impasse would likely delay any pullback in the Fed’s bond purchases until March or later. Investors seemed to conclude that the Fed might be ready to reduce its stimulus earlier than expected. The Dow Jones industrial average, which had been down 29 points before the Fed issued its statement, fell nearly 53 points about two hours later. And the yield on the 10-year Treasury note, a benchmark for rates on mortgages and other loans, rose from 2.49 percent to 2.52 percent.

Committee about the difficulties plaguing the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

committee that the technical issues that led to frozen screens and error messages are being cleared up on a daily basis. Security issues raise major new concerns on top of the long list of technical problems the administration is grappling with. “You accepted a risk on behalf of every user … that put their personal financial information at risk,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told Sebelius, citing the memo. “Amazon would never do this. ... This is completely an unacceptable level of security.” Sebelius countered that the system is secure, even though the site’s certificate, known in government parlance as an “authority to operate,” is of a temporary nature. A permanent certificate will be issued only when all security issues are addressed, she stressed. Spokeswoman Joanne Peters added separately: “When consumers fill out their online … applications, they can trust that the information they’re providing is protected by stringent security standards

and that the technology underlying the application process has been tested and is secure. Security testing happens on an ongoing basis using industry best practices.” The security certificate is required under longstanding federal policy before any government computer system can process, store or transmit agency data. The temporary certificate was approved by Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner, the senior HHS official closest to the rollout. No major security breaches have been reported. The memo said, “From a security perspective, the aspects of the system that were not tested due to the ongoing development, exposed a level of uncertainty that can be deemed as a high risk for the (federal marketplace website).” It recommended setting up a security team to address risks and conduct daily tests, and said a full security test should be conducted within two to three months of the website going live. A separate page stated that “the mitigation plan

does not reduce the risk to the (website) itself going into operation on October 1, 2013. However, the added protections do reduce the risk to the overall Marketplace operations and will ensure that the … system is completely tested within the next 6 months.” That page was signed by three senior technical officials below Tavenner at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. All the officials deal with information security issues. Sebelius’ forthright statement about her ultimate accountability for problems with the sign-up rollout came as Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., peppered her with questions about the “debacle.” “Hold me accountable for the debacle,” Sebelius responded. “I’m responsible.” Rep. Henry Waxman of California, the ranking Democrat on the committee, scoffed at Republican “oversight” of a law they have repeatedly tried to repeal. “I would urge my colleagues to stop hyperventilating,” said Waxman.

Red Sox romp to world title BOSTON (AP) — David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox romped to their third World Series championship in 10 seasons, thumping October ace Michael Wacha and the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 Wednesday night in Game 6. Shane Victorino drove in four runs and John Lackey pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning as the Red Sox clinched a crown on their own field for the first time since 1918. Fenway Park was rollicking, with the crowd standing from the very first pitch. Victorino lined a three-run double off the Green Monster in the third, and

the cheers, chants and singing of “Sweet Caroline” only got louder after that. Many fans paid over $1,000 per ticket for this night, eager to be part of an in-house celebration that had been building for nearly a century. Ortiz drew three walks and scored twice. He reached base a whopping 19 times in 25 plate appearances. Lackey gave up one run in 6 2-3 innings, becoming the first pitcher to start and win a World Series clincher for two different teams, having led the Angels past Barry Bonds and the Giants in

Game 7 in 2002 as a rookie. Stephen Drew hit a solo home run that someone in a Red Sox jacket caught in the bullpen. Mike Napoli, back in the lineup with Ortiz returning to the DH slot, hit an RBI single into the “B Strong” cutout in the grass that pays tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. The Cardinals dropped their third straight game. After winning Game 3 on an obstruction call, they couldn’t seem to get out of their own way. A day after the Cardinals’ plane was delayed in St. Louis for seven hours because of mechan-

ical problems, the NL champions didn’t show up at Fenway. An example? Jacoby Ellsbury reached on second baseman Matt Carpenter’s error in the fifth, then got picked off first but escaped a run down when the Cards made four throws to no avail. Wacha, too, was downright ordinary after such a brilliant run this month. The 22-year-old began the evening at 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA in four starts this postseason. He escaped a jam in the third, got tagged by Victorino in the third and left during a three-run fourth.

Beckmann’s time to shine All-NHC Baron hopes last year’s state experience pays off Saturday


WEDNESDAY’S GAMES TORONTO....................................4 CALGARY .....................................2


WATERLOO — All of Mark Beckmann’s training throughout the summer and regular season this fall paid dividends in a major way when the end of the year rolled around. The DeKalb junior didn’t win his first individual title until the Northeast Hoosier Conference Meet on Oct. 5, the last meet of the regular season. But it proved to be a sign of things to come, with Beckmann winning the sectional title, finishing second at the regional and third in the semistate — all of which was more than good enough to qualify Beckmann for Saturday’s Indiana High School Athletic Association State Finals in Terre Haute. “It took a lot of hard work to get back here but it’s all paying off,” said Beckmann, who logged more than 300 miles running during the summer. “And now we just got to keep setting bigger goals next year and try and go for a medal.” Both Beckmann and head coach Rowland Perez aren’t satisfied with just making it to the state finals. Beckmann advanced to the state meet last year, finishing 45th (16 minutes, 10.6 seconds). This year the goals are much higher, the biggest being to reach the podium. The

top 20 finishers in the state earn that distinction, while the top 25 runners are selected to the all-state team. Beckmann’s best time this year is 15:34, accomplished at the Bruin Invite. The junior surmises that he’ll need a time somewhere in the low 15:40s to place among the top 20 across the Hoosier State. “I would like to be on the podium this year,” Beckmann said. In order to do that though, Beckmann will have to alter his strategy from last year. The Lavern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course at Indiana State University is all downhill for the first half of the race and, last year, Beckmann didn’t pace himself properly and lost some steam when the course reached the hills. “You have to be careful,” Perez said. “The adrenaline’s going, the crowd will be pumping you up and halfway through is when you die and and they hit the hills.” To do that means to stay with the pack of top 20 runners or so, but to avoid running too quickly out of the gates. And Beckmann’s state finals experience from last year will certainly help. “I’m better at hills so that’ll help me a lot,” Beckmann said. “I’ve just got to stay on my

Pacers rally past New Orleans NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Paul George scored 32, George Hill capped a 19-point performance with pivotal 3-pointer in the final minute, and the Indiana Pacers erased a 16-point deficit en route to a 95-90 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night. Former New Orleans forward David West helped Indiana spoil the home opener for the rebranded Pelicans by hitting four free throws in the final 1:06 and finished with 12 points. Lance Stephenson scored 16 points for the Pacers, who had opened their season a night earlier with a victory over Orlando. Roy Hibbert blocked five shots and Ian Mahinmi blocked four for Indiana, which had 12 blocks in all. Eric Gordon scored 25 points and former Philadelphia All-Star Jrue Holiday added 24 in his Pelicans debut. Anthony Davis had 20 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks. The Pelicans led 85-81 after Holiday’s jumper, but Hibbert scored on a spin move in the paint while drawing center Jason Smith’s sixth foul, and then made the free throw to make it 85-84. West then snagged the rebound of Holiday’s missed jumper and soon after drew a foul, setting up the first of his late free throws to give Indiana the lead for good. After Davis’ driving layup attempt rimmed out, Hill drilled a straight-on 3 with 31.1 seconds left, and New Orleans could not

Pistons win opener

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Greg Monroe had 24 points and 16 rebounds, and the new-look Detroit Pistons won their season opener in convincing fashion, beating the Washington Wizards 113-102 Wednesday night. Andre Drummond added 12 points and eight rebounds for Detroit, which is hoping to snap a streak of four straight seasons without reaching the playoffs. The Pistons signed Josh Smith and Chauncey Billups in the offseason and added Brandon Jennings in a trade. Jennings did not play Wednesday — he’s been bothered by a wisdom tooth. Trevor Ariza scored 28 points for the Wizards, who were outscored 56-28 in the paint. Smith had 19 points for

the best runners in the state. He’ll be in a pack of 20 people and once he gets there he’s going to separate himself. Everything we’ve done for this one race, it’s up to him to run the race. We’re pretty confident he’ll get it done.” Another accomplishment the Baron achieved was reaching the top-10 list for fastest times in the program since 2000. “Hard work motivates you, and your coaches motivate you,” Beckmann said. “And all of your friends when they talk about it. It just keeps you going.” There are 208 runners in the race, which begins at 1 p.m. Saturday. You can watch the race online at terre-haute-north-video.

schools are from. That’s quite fun to see.” Said Perez, ” It’s a crazy, crazy atmosphere and he’s been there. He knows the course, he likes the course and all of that is going in his favor. He knows exactly what to do. He’s a textbook athlete. He does everything we ask and then some. Beckmann is also motivated by last week’s third-place finish at the semistate. Beckmann appeared to have second place locked up — behind defending state runner-up Zach Panning of Concordia — but was chased down by Homestead’s Brayden Law and finished third. “He’s not going to be in the pack he was last year,” Perez said. “He is one of

Detroit. Washington’s John Wall had 20 points and 11 assists, but went 8 of 21 from the field. Detroit led 89-85 in the fourth when Kyle Singler pushed the lead to seven with a driving three-point play. Billups later made back-to-back 3-pointers to make it 100-87. Washington is hoping to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2008, but it may be awhile before the Wizards or Pistons really have a sense of how improved they are.

Asked at Martinsville who he would like to call — if he could — to talk about the win, Wallace mentioned the NASCAR Hall of Fame nominee who was among the first African-Americans to race in NASCAR. “If Wendell Scott was alive, I would like to call him, but I can call Wendell Scott Jr.,” he said. “He sent me a text after Talladega and said just please just send a letter or a text or word back to make sure, to let me know that you’re all right, because he said he had déjà vu of his dad at Talladega.”

Nearly 50 years ago, on Dec. 1, 1963, at a dirt track in Jacksonville, Fla., the late Wendell Scott made history by becoming the first African-American to win a major NASCAR race. On Saturday at Martinsville Speedway, Darrell Wallace Jr. became the second by winning the Kroger 200 in the Camping World Truck Series. Wallace, driving a Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports, started third and led 96 laps, including the final 50, to get the victory in his 19th career start in the series. Like any other first-time winner, Wallace was overcome by emotion when the checkered flag came into view. “I’m speechless,” he said as he climbed from his truck. “God, I couldn’t even hold it together coming off (Turn) Four with the checkered. I still can’t.” The 20-year-old driver from Mobile, Ala., said he was proud to have scored his first win at a track not far down the road from Scott’s hometown of Danville, Va. “To do it here in the backyard of Wendell Scott means so much more, and like it’ll take tomorrow for this to finally hit me, so I might be crying again tomorrow, but this is an emotional win and a big win for all of us,” he said. Wallace is now the second member of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program to win a major event, joining Kyle Larson, who is part Japanese and who won a Truck race at Rockingham Speedway in April. And Wallace knows and embraces the fact that as such, he’s now in the position of being a role model for other up-andcoming young racers. “I want to be a role model and inspiration to the younger kids, and just change the sport as a whole and change it for the better; bring in a new face and just new activity into the sport, and winning helps

Darrell Wallace Jr. makes history at Martinsville Speedway in Camping World Truck Series Kroger 200

Darrell Wallace Jr. gives the crowd a burnout after his victory on Saturday. Wallace’s team owner Kyle Busch was proud to be a part of Saturday’s historic accomplishment. “I’m happier for Darrell than for anybody, but this is certainly a monumental day, and hopefully one that he’ll remember for a long time and can cherish,” Busch said. “The first one is always the most important one because it seems like they can just come right after that pretty easily. “We’ve seen great things out of Darrell this year, and he’s really come a long ways throughout the season.” Despite his success, Wallace is still uncertain about his 2014 racing plans, but a major victory could change that. “Winning definitely helps out with sponsorship,” he said. “I’d love to be back in a Toyota Tundra for Kyle, competing for wins each and every weekend, especially now after this. We’ve learned a lot and we’ve still got three races to learn, and to do that again next year, we should be going for that championship and a hard one to beat.”

The history-making at Martinsville Speedway, which started with Darrell Wallace Jr.’s win in Saturday’s Truck race, continued Sunday when Jeff Gordon, one of NASCAR’s all-time great drivers, broke a season-long winless streak and ran his career total to 88 Sprint Cup victories. Only Richard Petty, with 200 wins, and David Pearson, with 105, are ahead of him in all-time Cup victories. Gordon’s win also put him in a tie with his teammate Jimmie Johnson for most Martinsville wins among active drivers.

Jeff Gordon captures his first win of the season with Sprint Cup victory at Martinsville Speedway

NASCAR announced last week that beginning next season, the sanctioning body will require drivers to undergo preseason baseline testing as part of its concussion prevention and management program. “NASCAR made this decision because we think it is important to drivers’ health for doctors to have the best information and tools available in evaluating injuries,” Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR vice president of racing operations, said in making the announcement. Baseline testing will be done with an ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) test. Drivers were encouraged to have the tests this year, but they will be required next season.

Bill Elliott finishes fourth in Late Model Veteran Sprint Cup driver Bill Elliott, who hasn’t raced in Cup since July 2012, was back behind the wheel of a race car a couple of weeks ago in a Late Model race at South Alabama Speedway in Opp, Ala., where he finished fourth in a 125-lap race won by his son, Chase Elliott. “Chase and the guys on the crew talked me into it,” Elliott said. “It was a lot of fun.” Elliott finished just ahead of Harrison Burton, the 13-year-old son of Sprint Cup driver Jeff Burton. “It felt kind of weird racing someone that young,” Elliott said, “especially when you’re 58.”

Kevin Harvick sounds off after Martinsville crash In the heat of the moment during the Kroger 200 Truck race at Martinsville, Kevin Harvick shed some light on the reasons behind his decision to leave Richard Childress Racing and move to StewartHaas Racing next season. Harvick and Ty Dillon — one of two racing grandsons of his current car owner, Richard Childress — wrecked on the track, banged fenders several times under caution and had another incident on pit road. Harvick sounded off to the media afterward, saying Dillon was a “rich kid” who hadn’t earned his place as a NASCAR driver and blamed him for the wreck. “The 3 (Dillon) just dumped me,” Harvick said. “Exactly the reason why I’m leaving RCR, because you’ve got those (Dillon) kids coming up and they’ve got no respect for what they do in this sport, and they’ve had everything fed to them with a spoon. So, I cut him slack all day and he just divebombs me in there; dumps me.” Dillon, a Truck Series regular, said Harvick had it coming. “He got sideways and then he hit the brakes and tried to brake-check me,” Dillon said, adding that he “just finished (Harvick) off.” And he was disappointed that Harvick wouldn’t discuss the incident afterward. “Can’t even face me after,” Dillon said.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Achonwa out for ND women SOUTH BEND (AP) — Notre Dame forward Natalie Achonwa is likely out for more than a month with a knee injury. Achonwa underwent surgery last week for a small meniscus tear in her right knee, coach Muffet McGraw said Wednesday after the Irish beat California, Pa., 118-49 in an exhibition game. She is expected to be out four to six weeks, McGraw said, which would mean she would be back before the Irish enter their inaugural season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The 6-foot-3 senior averaged 13.8 points and 9.5 rebounds last season. McGraw said she hopes freshman Taya Reimer can help fill the void until Achonwa returns, but said the Irish need someone else to step forward to help ease the load. “We need a 1-2 punch in the post and right now we’ve just got that one punch,” McGraw said. The 6-3 Reimer was perfect in the exhibition game, going 11-of-11 from the floor and making all five free throw attempts. She also had six rebounds and three assists.

76ers stun defending champs PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Spencer Hawes scored 24 points and hit the winning basket late in the fourth quarter to lead the Philadelphia 76ers past the Miami Heat 114-110 on Wednesday night. The Sixers were strong from the opening tip, they made their first 11 shots and raced to a stunning 26-4 lead. The Heat, though, erased the deficit in the third quarter and appeared to take control behind LeBron James. Hawes hit a 3-pointer, then a driving layup for a 109-108 lead with 2:01 left. James blew two straight chances to put Miami up, losing the ball on a drive down the middle, then missed a 6-footer on the next possession. Shane Battier missed his seventh straight 3-point attempt, and the Sixers put the game away from the free-throw line. Michael Carter-Williams had 22 points, 12 assists and set an NBA first-game record with nine steals for the Sixers.

Iverson retires from NBA PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Allen Iverson’s highlights played one more time on the big screen, diehard 76ers fans and Julius Erving all part of the crowd catching one more glimpse of No. 3 in his prime. All there. All as much part of Iverson’s DNA as the rants about practice, the cornrows, the controversy. All in the past. This was time for A.I. to say goodbye. Iverson officially called it quits — though, in truth, it was the NBA that gave up on him — nearly four years after he played his final game. He did it in typical A.I. flair, eschewing a suit fit for an elder statesman for a black, leather hoodie, askew black cap and a gold chain around his neck. “I always felt like it was cool being me,” Iverson said. Iverson retired Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center. Iverson led the Sixers to the 2001 NBA finals, won four scoring titles, and was an All-Star game fixture. Winning a championship is the lone void in a bio sheet that forever stamps him among the league’s greats. The undersized guard with the supersized heart was a perfect match in a city that prizes authenticity and hustle as much as production. “I’m going to always be a Sixer til I die,” he said.

Chamblee sorry for insinuating that Tiger Woods cheated ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee said Wednesday it was mistake to compare Tiger Woods’ rules violation to his own episode of cheating on a fourth-grade math test and that he would stop writing for the website where his column appeared. “I said Tiger Woods was cavalier about the rules. I should have stopped right there,” Chamblee said Wednesday night in his first appearance on Golf Channel since his column was posted to nearly two weeks ago. “In comparing those incidents to my cheating episode in the fourth grade, I went too far,” he said. “Cheating involves intent. Now, I know what my intent was on that fourth-grade math test. But there’s no way that I could know with 100 percent certainty what Tiger’s intent was in any of those situations. That was my mistake.” His comments came two days after Woods and his agent, Mark Steinberg at Excel Sports, put pressure on Golf Channel to do something.

College Soccer Britons edge Trine women ALBION, Mich — Trine University’s women’s soccer team lost to Albion 1-0 in a Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association match Wednesday afternoon. Briton Kayla Paquette scored the lone goal of the match with 9 minutes, 25 seconds left on an assist from Morgan Button. Albion (3-14-1, 1-13-1 MIAA) outshot the Thunder 19-9. Jamie Schnarr made eight saves in goal for Trine (2-15, 1-13).

NEW YORK (AP) — Characterizing their meeting with the NFL about their disapproval of the use of Redskins by the Washington franchise as disappointing, representatives of the Oneida Indian Nation requested a meeting with all 32 NFL owners during Super Bowl week. They hope to persuade the other team owners and Commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. “Given the way the meeting transpired,” Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the “Change the Mascot Campaign,” said Wednesday, “it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name. Of course, we’re disappointed.”





Happy home life stops couple from going out DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Mark,” and I have been together for a year. We met at work, and have dated ever since. Several months ago we were offered a job opportunity in another state. We moved in together and are happy. My problem is, over the past few months we have been living together, our personal relationship has come to a halt. We still care about each other deeply, but no longer do the things couples do. We don’t go out on dates or see the new city we’ve moved to. Do you have any advice on how I can get Mark to go out and see the sights without sounding whiny or pushy? — BALTIMORE AND D.C.

Peripheral neuropathy has many causes something as light as a feather (like some cotton), you may not feel it. However, you will feel it if the cotton touches your skin in the thigh or elsewhere in the body. You may also lose sensation to a pinprick in the lower legs and feet, but not the rest of you. ASK Diabetes DOCTOR K. is the most common cause of Dr. Anthony peripheral neuropathy. neuropKomaroff But athy can result from other causes as well. These include: • Excessive alcohol intake. • Hypothyroidism. In this condition, the thyroid gland does not produce enough

thyroid hormone. • Amyloidosis, a disease in which an abnormal protein accumulates in the body. • Vitamin deficiencies, particularly vitamin B1, B12 and folate deficiency. • Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). • Critical illness, particularly if you develop a severe inflammatory response to infection. • Guillain-Barre syndrome. This uncommon autoimmune disorder damages the peripheral nerves. • Chemotherapy cancer treatment. Diagnosing peripheral neuropathy is best done by electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS). Such testing often is not necessary, as your symptoms, your medical history and your doctor’s physical examination make the likelihood of diagnosing peripheral neuropathy high

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have peripheral neuropathy. I know that people with diabetes often get neuropathy, but I’m not diabetic. What else can cause this condition? And what can I do about it? DEAR READER: Neuropathy is a medical term that means nerve damage. The type of nerve damage that people with diabetes get involves specific nerve fibers in all nerves, particularly the nerves that travel to the legs and feet. (There are other conditions in which a single nerve leading to the legs and feet is pinched, causing pain. An example is what is often called a “slipped disk” or “herniated disk.” The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include numbness and tingling. Some cases cause burning, shooting or stabbing pain. When the doctor does a physical examination and touches your feet and lower legs with

ularly because Baltimore and Washington, D.C., have many entertainment and cultural opportunities to offer. Then create a “bucket list” and have him choose from the menu of choices that are DEAR available. If doesn’t ABBY that inspire him, ask HIM to create a Jeanne Phillips list, or start exploring on your own. If you are successful at getting Mark out of the house, it may liven up your relationship. But if it doesn’t, you may have more serious problems to deal with, and a heart-toheart talk with him about your entire relationship is

enough that such testing is unnecessary. Treatment of peripheral neuropathy begins with treating the underlying cause of the condition. For example, let’s say your neuropathy is related to heavy drinking. You should severely restrict, or better yet abstain, from alcohol. If your neuropathy is caused by hypothyroidism, treatment with replacement doses of thyroid hormone should help. The other goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms. In particular, treatment targets pain caused by peripheral neuropathy. Several medications can help. Gabapentin, an anticonvulsant medication, is usually effective. Tricyclic antidepressants can also effectively relieve pain. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is AskDoc
