GOOD MORNING Museum to stay open later in 2013 AUBURN — The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum will change its hours of operations beginning Wednesday. In 2013, the museum will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The last admission will be taken one hour before each day’s scheduled closing. The museum is closed only on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. “The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is a community treasure. It needs to be open when members of the community and surrounding areas can take advantage of the beauty, history and mechanical marvels that this building holds,” said Kendra Klink, operations director. “The extended hours will also give more opportunities for guests to visit after 5 p.m. daily and for DeKalb County residents to take advantage of free admissions on Wednesdays.” “We have done a lot of research and discussed changing the hours of operation at the museum,” said Laura Brinkman, executive director and CEO of the museum. “We will offer many activities at the museum throughout the year for guests of all ages to participate in such as lectures, photography and art classes, fundraising events and special family activities, to name a few.”
2 rescued after car goes into frigid lake FISHERS (AP) — Bystanders have rescued two people who were trapped in a frigid lake when their car went off the road in a suburb north of Indianapolis. Fishers Deputy Fire Marshal Ron Lipps says in a news release that the accident happened Thursday morning at an old quarry filled with water that is believed to be 60 to 80 feet deep. The temperature at noon was about 30 degrees. Three or four people saw the accident and jumped into water to help the car’s occupants get out. Lipps says everyone made it out safely, but both people in the car and their rescuers were taken to area hospitals. Police were investigating whether road conditions were a factor following a snowstorm Wednesday.

Obama invites top lawmakers to talk at White House today

Shipshewana today and Saturday for the sixth annual Shipshewana Ice Festival. Ice art can be found all around the downtown area as well as at Yoder’s Shopping Center.
Cool artists set to sculpt Shipshewana plays host to annual Ice Festival BY PATRICK REDMOND email@example.com
SHIPSHEWANA — Sixteen tons of ice arrived in Shipshewana Thursday morning for the sixth annual Shipshewana Ice Festival that runs today and Saturday. More than a dozen professional ice carvers and their chainsaws are tearing up huge blocks of ice in the annual festi val that will showcase ice sculptures throughout the downtown area. At least nine ice artists will participate in a competitive ice-carving contest today at 10 a.m. just outside the Davis Mercantile. The artists will be carving 600-pound blocks of ice with chainsaws into works of art. Levi King, a local businessman and Ice
Festival promoter, said more than 30,000 pounds of specially made, crystal-clear blocks of ice have been trucked into Shipshewana just for the event. Ice artist Danny Bloss of Niles, Mich., said the Shipshewana event is one of the biggest ice-sculpting events in the area. Saturday, the festival kicks it up a notch, hosting a chili cook-off contest in a tent set up in the Davis Mercantile parking lot. Ten seasoned chili cooks will set up their kitchens and prepare their own secret versions of chili, hoping to win the local chili crown. Visitors can participate by purchasing tickets that allow them to sample the chili. The festival runs through Saturday evening.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A deadline looming, President Barack Obama will meet with congressional leaders at the White House on Friday in search of a compromise to avoid a year-end “fiscal cliff” of across-theboard tax increases and deep spending cuts. The development capped a day of growing urgency in which Obama returned early from a Hawaiian vacation while lawmakers snarled across a partisan divide over responObama sibility for gridlock on key pocketbook issues. Speaker John Boehner called the House back into session for a highly unusual Sunday evening session. Adding to the woes confronting the middle class was a pending spike of $2 per gallon or more in milk prices if lawmakers failed to pass farm legislation by year’s end. Four days before the deadline, the White House disputed reports that Obama was sending lawmakers a scaled-down plan to avoid the fiscal cliff of tax increases and spending cuts. Administration officials confirmed the Friday meeting at the White House in a bare-bones announcement that said the president would “host a meeting.” An aide to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said the Kentucky lawmaker “is eager to hear from the president.” A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner issued a statement that said the Ohio Republican would attend and “continue to stress that the House has already passed legislation to avert the entire fiscal cliff and now the Senate must act.” While there was no guarantee of a compromise, Republicans and Democrats said privately elements of any agreement would likely include an extension of middle class tax cuts with increased rates at upper incomes as well as cancellation of the scheduled spending cuts. An extension of expiring unemployment benefits, a reprieve for doctors who face a cut in Medicare payments and possibly a short-term measure to prevent dairy prices from soaring could also become part of a year-end bill, they said. That would postpone politically contentious disputes over spending cuts for 2013. Top Senate leaders said they remain ready to seek a last-minute agreement. Yet there was no legislation pending and no sign of negotiations in either the House or the Senate on a bill to pre vent the tax hikes and spending cuts that economists say could send the economy into a recession. Far from conciliatory, the rhetoric was confrontational and at times unusually personal. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., accused Boehner of running a dictatorship, citing his refusal to call a vote on legislation to keep taxes

New industry to get city electrical service BY AARON ORGAN firstname.lastname@example.org
AUBURN — A Hartford City company has been contracted to run city electric service to the new Scot Industries plant west of I-69, the city’s Board of Public Works and Safety said Thursday. T&B Inc. will perform the job for $101,075. It was the low bidder of five companies vying for the project, city electric superintendent Stuart Tuttle told the board at its meeting in City Hall. The city will supply the material for the lines. T&B will perform the labor. Scot Industries, a manufacturer of steel tube and bar products, is nearing completion of its $34.7 million, 250,000-square-foot plant along the south side of C.R. 48, just west of I-69. The plant will bring 60-80 jobs by 2014 and as many as 165 jobs to the area once it is fully operational, Scot Industries has said. The 140-acre site that houses the massive plant has been annexed into the city.
Auburn Board of Works • In other business Thursday, the board awarded Fort Wayne asphalt company Wayne Asphalt contracts to repave stretches of both Dewey Street and Duesenberg Drive. The remaining stretch of Dewey, to Highland Drive, will be repaved for $87,359. Half of Dewey was paved earlier this year as part of a sewer separation project. Duesenberg, from the entrance of Smith Acres Park to Allison Boulevard, will be repaved for $61,263. Wayne Asphalt was the low bidder among four companies for both projects. The board accepted a $32,800 grant from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute for the city’s IMAGE Drug Task Force. Auburn Police Chief Martin McCoy told the board the money will be used

FORT WAYNE — An Angola man set to go to trial next week for forgery has been charged with counterfeiting in federal court. Scott D. Silvers, 47, is charged in federal court with using counterfeit “access devices,” or credit cards, counterfeiting, passing counterfeit money and possessing “devicemaking equipment,” say federal court documents. The charges stem from a raid on Silvers’ apartment in October. Officers allegedly found him sitting at a table, printing counterfeit money. They also allegedly found multiple printers, linen business paper, a manual embossing machine, a credit-card making machine and paper with copies of bills. Silvers also allegedly had other people’s birth certificates, driver’s licenses and credit cards. The investigation began when a woman tried to buy a gift card with counterfeit $10 bills at an Angola big box store. In Steuben Superior Court earlier this month, Silvers told Judge William Fee he gave the fake bills to people who were down on their luck. Silvers plans to represent himself Thursday against chief deputy prosecutor Travis Musser. Public defender Robert Hardy has been retained as stand-by counsel. Silvers faces up to 22 years in the case that includes a Class C felony forgery charge, a Class D felony counterfeiting charge and a potential designation of habitual offender. A pretrial conference is scheduled for today at noon in Superior Court. Silvers is being held in Steuben County Jail.

Teen arrested after alleged Facebook threats PORTAGE (AP) — A northwest Indiana teenager has been arrested after police say he made online threats to go on a violent rampage. Nineteen-year-old Eric Rizley of Portage was being
held Thursday in the Porter County Jail in Valparaiso. Police arrested Rizley on preliminary charges of intimidation early Thursday morning. The Times of Munster reports that friends tried to calm Rizley down
online after he allegedly made Facebook posts such as “Watch out portage people might be dying soon.” Police were called when he allegedly continued to post statements such as “No seriously imma
go on a rampage.” Police say Rizley told officers that he had no intention of carrying out the threats, but couldn’t explain why he didn’t stop posting them when his mother asked him to.

pointed out in her statement that the 88-year-old Bush is sick and likely will be in the hospital for a while after a “terrible case of bronchitis which then triggered a series of complications.” Bush, the oldest living former president, has been in intensive care since Sunday. He was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston on Nov. 23 for treatment of what his spokesman Jim McGrath described as a “stubborn” cough. He had spent about a week there earlier in November for treatment of the same condition. Becker said “most of the civilized world” contacted her Wednesday after disclosures Bush had been placed in the intensive care unit after physicians were having difficulty bringing a fever under control. “Someday President George H.W. Bush might realize how beloved he is, but of course one of the reasons why he is so beloved is because he has no idea,”

‘Stormin’ Norman’ dies at age 78 Schwarzkopf kept low profile in later years WASHINGTON (AP) — Retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, who topped an illustrious military career by commanding the U.S.-led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait in 1991 but kept a low Schwarzkopf public profile in controversies over the second Gulf War against Iraq, died Thursday. He was 78. Schwarzkopf died in Tampa, Fla., where he had lived in retirement, according to a U.S. official, who was not authorized to release the information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. A much-decorated combat soldier in Vietnam, Schwarzkopf was known popularly as “Stormin’ Norman” for a notoriously explosive temper. He served in his last military assignment in Tampa as commander-inchief of U.S. Central Command, the headquarters responsible for U.S. military and security concerns in nearly 20 countries from the eastern Mediterranean and Africa to Pakistan. Schwarzkopf became “CINC-Centcom” in 1988 and when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait three years later to punish it for allegedly stealing Iraqi oil reserves, he commanded Operation Desert Storm, the coalition of some 30 countries organized by President George H.W. Bush that succeeded in driving the Iraqis out. “Gen. Norm Schwarzkopf, to me, epitomized the ‘duty, service, country’ creed that has defended our freedom and seen this great nation through our most trying international crises,” Bush said in a statement. “More than that, he was a good and decent man — and a dear friend.” At the peak of his postwar national celebrity, Schwarzkopf — a selfproclaimed political independent — rejected suggestions that he run for office, and remained far more private than other generals, although he did serve briefly as a military commentator for NBC. While focused primarily in his later years on charitable enterprises, he campaigned for President George W. Bush in 2000 but was ambivalent about the 2003 invasion of Iraq, saying he doubted victory would be as easy as the White House and Pentagon predicted. In early 2003 he told the Washington Post the outcome was an unknown: “What is postwar Iraq going to look like, with the Kurds and the Sunnis and the Shiites? That’s a huge question, to my mind. It really should be part of the overall campaign plan,” he said.

he bizarre and horrific saga of Richmond Hill added a chapter Friday that survivors of the Nov. 10 explosion can only hope leads to some form of closure. An insurance scam is said to have wrought the death and destruction that led to felon y murder charges against Monserrate Shirley; her boyfriend, Mark Leonard; and his brother, Bob Leonard. Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said the three plotted to release natural gas into Shirley’s Southeastside home and detonate it with a timed microwave oven, hoping to cash in on insurance coverage they’d increased to $300,000. If that is true — and the state still has the burden of proving so — then the deed was both greedy and unconscionably callous. Far from being confined to the Shirley house, the blast destroyed four others as well, damaged 90 more and took the lives of John “Dion” and Jennifer Longworth, Shirley’s next-door neighbors. More than $4 million in damage was incurred, and the lives of countless people were scarred forever. For three people, prosecutors must decide whether to seek the death penalty. “We are here today to discuss a thoroughly, thoroughly senseless act which resulted in the death of two young adults in the prime of their life,” Curry said at a press conference in the company of local, state and federal law enforcement personnel. “We in the criminal justice community must devote our best efforts to see that justice is served.” Those efforts already have been arduous as a probe has been conducted into one of the most difficult types of crimes to solve. Anxious weeks have gone by since authorities first announced that the incident was being treated as a homicide. Many months will pass before a resolution comes to this cataclysmic act that shook an entire city. As the grim details of the Richmond Hill story unfold, the positives will continue to shine through: the heroic work of first responders, the tireless team efforts of investigators, the healing embrace of the sufferers by their neighbors and the larger community. May those chapters be as well noted as this one.

Letters to The Editor • Noble County needs clear animal welfare regulations To the editor: A public hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 2, at 7 p.m. in the basement of the Noble County Office Complex at 2090 North State Road 9 in Albion to consider a zoning petition that may result in Noble County’s first largescale commercial dog kennel to operate in our community. I want to urge anyone who has a stake in protecting the quality of life here to become informed and involved in determining what the future may hold. This hearing has been set for the Board of Zoning Appeals to review the variance and exception petitions for six dog breeding kennels. One of these, in particular, is drawing significant interest from animal welfare groups including Puppy Mill Awareness Meetup from Southeast Michigan and the United States Department of Agriculture. It is fair to believe the Humane Society of the United States and PeTA may not be far behind. In recent years many have worked hard to develop the Noble County Comprehensive Plan to “create a better future” and to “effectively and specifically guide decisions for policies.” The plan aims to “strengthen
relationships between governmental, quasigovernmental, private and nonprofit organizations.” This county is home to a number of organizations whose missions include advocating to protect the well-being of animals, and to develop compassionate, responsible citizens in our community. Those who support, through their heardearned dollars and volunteer efforts, humane societies, animal foster groups and families, veterinarians, etc., and those who promote humane education for responsible pet ownership, should be keenly interested in the choice to allow, or not, the first “commercial breeder” of this sort to operate here. The decision could decide if Noble County will become a hotbed for the kinds of businesses that have made other communities home to protests, controversy and headlines. Animal welfare is a topic that has more implications than the direct impact on any one animal’s life. Have you ever heard of Zanesville, Ohio? Does the name Michael Vick ring a bell? There is plenty of evidence to be reviewed at this hearing, including violations of the Federal Animal Welfare Act as recently as October 2012, to suggest thoughtful consideration for these applications is in order. While communities around the nation are bringing change to prohibit
the kinds of activities that result in animal suffering and overpopulation, Noble County is struggling. We lack clear regulations related to animal welfare. I urge citizens to engage in conversation and participate in this decision-making process. We are at risk of setting a precedent of “safe ha ven” to the problems of other communities. The task at hand for the Board of Zoning Appeals is to determine findings of fact. According to the review process, this means not only consideration of the physical characteristics of the proposed kennels within the scope of “land use” b ut also that the proposed use is consistent with the purpose of the comprehensive plan. It is up to this board, with public input during this hearing, to determine if this unique industry will be “injurious to the public health, safety, morals and general welfare of the community.” I strongly urge anyone who lacks knowledge of the issues surrounding largescale puppy breeding operations, those raising families who value the development of compassion for all life, as well as those who work tirelessly to help animals in need, to attend the meeting on Jan. 2. Listen, learn and let your voices be heard.

Taking another ever closer look through the lens at Kennedy, albeit lightly WASHINGTON — In today’s world of social media, where everyone’s every little thing is on display, it is sometimes difficult to recall a time when exhibitionism wasn’t ubiquitous and was, in fact, not admired. Such are the inevitable thoughts upon perusing Kitty Kelley’s lovely new book — yes, lovely — about John F. Kennedy as seen through the eyes, or more accurately, the lens of her friend, photojournalist Stanley Tretick. Kelley, notorious for her unauthorized biographies of such luminaries as Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Frank Sinatra and more recently Oprah, narrates the book, “Capturing Camelot,” which is essentially a photo album filled with about 200 images, including many iconic shots (John-John under his father’s desk), as well as many never before seen. The narrative provides just enough fresh information to justify yet
another book about JFK. Kelley inherited the photos, as well as memos and keepsakes, that Tretick kept in a trunk and left to her upon his death in 1999. Tretick once told Kelley playfully that the trunk was filled with nude photos. Instead, she found a treasure trove. Kelley’s book is thus a story with many layers: Her own friendship with Tretick; his with the Kennedys; the Kennedys among themselves. Tretick’s photographs and notes provide a wider angle through which to glimpse the president and first lady, about whom we already know so much. Is there anything left to know about JFK? A picture is worth a thousand words, we have heard a thousand times, but some tell more than others. And sometimes the picture not taken tells us even more. These would include photos Kennedy specifically asked
Tretick not to shoot. Not that Tretick always acquiesced but the relationship between the president and the photographer seems to have been one of mutual KATHLEEN respect. A photogPARKER rapher is perfectly positioned to reveal truths beyond the camera. He is essentially an authorized peeping Tom. Unlike the paparazzi who steals intimacy with a telescopic lens, the authorized photographer is invited to a mostintimate gathering. Part of what one discovers, or rediscovers, about Kennedy upon reading Tretick’s notes is that the man irrevocably associated with womanizing (thanks in
part to Kelley’s own expose in “Jackie Oh!”), was in most other ways a class act — humble, authentic, dignified and uninterested in being an object of adulation. How refreshing and, these days, how rare. In one memo Kelley fished from the trunk, he described Kennedy as “extremely polite, great sense of humor, quick as a rapier on the uptake, hard to top, cannot stand posing for pictures, expresses displeasure if he knows you caught him off guard in a photo that might not be to his liking … absolutely rebels at any photo that shows him eating or drinking.” Kennedy also hated being photographed in hats because he felt corny and silly. Among more-contemporary politicians, President Obama seems to have harnessed this lesson better than most. Memorable in the annals of unfortunate headwear was, of course, then-Gov. Michael
Dukakis, whose fate as a presidential candidate in 1988 may have been sealed by a photo of him wearing a military helmet and taking a spin in a tank. Kennedy also objected to public displays of affection, which was commonly understood to be, well, common. Only people bereft of education and what used to be known as manners displayed affection in public. Whose business are one’s emotions, anyway? Ah. But they’re everyone’s today. We can hardly get through an hour without expressing to online “friends,” otherwise known as virtual strangers, our every waking experience, from what food we’ve consumed to who we spotted across the restaurant. No one understood the value of image better than Kennedy, who defeated Richard Nixon in 1960 by a mere 100,000 votes out of 68 million cast, in part because he was surpassingly telegenic
compared to the sweatsoaked Nixon. Even so — and impressively in our age of photo-ops and endless spin — Kennedy wanted nothing captured on camera that wasn’t real. If it didn’t happen, he wouldn’t pose and pretend that it had. Again, refreshing and rare. There’s no telling how Kennedy would have navigated our 24/7 media world, in which everyone with a phone is a photographer, and respect for personal space is nonexistent. As we ponder these what-ifs, one is grateful that there was once a Camelot, if only in America’s idea of itself, so beautifully captured by a remarkable photographer and given permanence by Kelley, who has a sweet side after all.

In this 2011 file photo, Piers Morgan, host of CNNâ€™s â€œPiers Morgan Tonight,â€? leaves the CNN building in Los Angeles. More than 31,400 people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the U.S. over his gun-control views. Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wak e of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.
Pro-gun rights activists petition to deport Piers Morgan LONDON (AP) â€” Tens of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the U.S. over his gun control views. Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting. Last week, he called a gun advocate appearing on his â€œPiers Morgan Tonightâ€? show an â€œunbelievably stupid man.â€? Now, gun rights activists are fighting back. A petition created Dec. 21 on the White House epetition website by a user in Texas accuses Morgan of engaging in a â€œhostile attack against the U.S. Constitutionâ€? by targeting the Second Amendment. It demands he be deported immediately for â€œexploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.â€? The petition has already hit the 25,000 signature threshold to get a White House response. By Monday, it had 31,813 signatures. Morgan seemed unfazed â€” and even amused â€” by the movement. In a series of Twitter messages, he alternately urged his followers to sign the petition and in response to one article about the petition said â€œbring it onâ€? as he appeared to track the petitionâ€™ s progress. â€œIf I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me?â€? he wrote.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) â€” The ghetto called Aroma reeks of putrefying trash collected by its residents for recycling. Half-naked children with grimy faces play on muddy dirt roads lined by crumbling shanties of tarpaulin walls, cracked tin roofs and communal toilets. From this Manila slum of garbage collectors emerged an unlikely Cinderella: ballerina Jessa Balote who at the age of 10 was plucked out of her grubby life by a ballet school to prepare her for a life on stage. In four years since her audition in 2008, Jessa has performed in various productions, including Swan Lake, Pinocchio, Don Quixote and a local version of Cinderella. She rode a plane for the first time in August to compete in the 2012 Asian Grand Prix ballet competition for students and young dancers in Hong Kong, where she was a finalist. The 14-year-old Jessaâ€™s unlikely success is as much
a celebration of a unique effort by the Philippinesâ€™ most famous prima ballerina, Lisa Macuja, to help slum kids of Manila by providing them a scholarship and classical ballet training for six to seven years. More than a quarter of the Southeast Asian nationâ€™s 94 million people live in abject poverty, many in sprawling and unsanitary shanty towns like Aroma in the capital city. Despite a reecent economic upturn, there are not enough full-time jobs. Education skills are lacking and incomes are low. At least 3,000 Filipinos leave their families behind every day to seek employment abroad. Jessa, who would have likely followed her family to a life of garbage picking, had not much of a future to look forward to. â€œI used to tag along with my father and mother when they collected garbage in the evening,â€? Jessa said in her home about the size of a

Drive carefully on snow Indiana Department of Transportation plow truck drivers work through nights, weekends and holidays. Motorists can get information at TrafficWise.IN.gov or by dialing toll-free 800-261-ROAD (7623) for updated Indiana travel information, including road conditions, road closures, construction information, crashes and other traffic alerts. INDOT Northeast also has a Facebook site.
INDOT asks drivers to promote their own safety and that of others by using these winter driving tips: â€˘ Accelerate gradually on ice or snow to avoid slipping and sliding. â€˘ Drive slowly and carefully to avoid rear-end collisions and sliding on curves. â€˘ Allow greater distance behind the car ahead; it takes more time to stop on snow and ice. â€˘ Brake early, brake
slowly and never slam on the brakes. If you have antilock brakes, press the pedal down firmly and hold it; if you donâ€™t, gently pump the pedal. â€˘ Donâ€™t use cruise control; avoid abrupt steering maneuvers. â€˘ Maintain good visibility, stay alert and use headlights so others can see the vehicle. â€˘ Give snowplows room to operate; donâ€™t tailgate or try to pass.

U.N. envoy, Russia call for revival of Syrian plan BEIRUT (AP) — Russia and the U.N called Thursday for the resuscitation of a peace initiative for Syria that never got off the ground when it was proposed months ago because both parties to the conflict rejected it. The plan, unveiled by world powers at an international conference in Geneva in June, called for an openended cease-fire, a transitional government to run the country until elections, and the drafting of a new constitution. The plan was a nonstarter for the opposition because it did not explicitly ban authoritarian President Bashar Assad and other members of his regime from taking part in the transitional leadership. The regime ignored it because it would entail voluntarily giving up power. There was no sign that the plan had any more chance of succeeding now than it did back in June. Assad’s government did not comment on the attempt to revive the proposal, and a
coordinator for the rebels seeking to end Assad’s rule called the plan “illogical.” “No one in the opposition can accept this, and if they accept it, it will be refused by the Syrian people,” said Bassam Al-Dada, a Turkeybased coordinator with the rebel Free Syrian Army. He said Assad’s forces have killed too many people for him to play a role in any solution. Anti-regime activists say more than 40,000 people have been killed since the revolt against Assad began in March 2011. Because of Russian objections, the original plan did not call specifically for Assad’s ouster nor ban him or top members of his regime from participating in the new government. Much has changed in Syria since the plan was first presented. Rebels have gained momentum, seizing more territory and a number of military installations in the country’s north. They are also expanding their control in suburbs of the capital, Damascus.
These gains make it increasingly unlikely that they will accept any plan that allows any part of Assad’s regime to remain. The government, too, has given no indication it will give any ground and dismisses almost all opposition activities as terrorism that seeks to destroy the country. In Damascus on Thursday, the U.N. envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi called the Geneva plan “suitable enough” to end Syria’s war. “The Syrian people seek genuine change,” Brahimi said, adding that the transitional period “must not lead to the collapse of the state or the state’s institutions.” Brahimi said that original plan could be amended, but he didn’t say how. He did not mention Assad by name and only said the transitional government would have “full executive powers,” meaning “all the authority of the state should be possessed by that government.”
Competition blamed for casino revenue drop INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana state government could see a big drop in casino tax revenue over the next two years because of competition from new casinos in Ohio, state officials say. The latest state revenue forecast released this month projects the state’s annual casino tax revenue to decline by about $42 million, or 9 percent, for the second year of the ne w two-year state budget that legislators will decide during their session that starts ne xt month. Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Luke Kenley, R-Noblesville, said he didn’t believe Indiana’s casino revenue would ever return to the levels seen when there was little competition from neighboring states. He said state lawmakers should support measures that ensure Indiana’s casinos remain as competitive as possible, The Times of Munster reported Wednesday. “You’ve created an industry you’ve said,
CLIFF: Congressional leaders say they’re frustrated FROM PAGE A1

‘We’re willing to have,’ and you have to be viable,” Kenley told the newspaper. “So now I think it’s a question of whether we’re going to make changes that allow them to continue to be viable or whether we’re going to let the industry just die.” Indiana had tax revenue of $496.5 million from its 13 casinos during the 2012 budget year. As recently as 2008, when Illinois was the only adjacent state with casinos, Indiana’s casino revenue totaled nearly $583 million. The new state forecast projects that casino revenue will drop to about $464 million during the current 2013 budget year, which ends June 30. Casino tax revenue is expected to fall to $432 million in 2014, and $423 million in 2015. A proposed tribal casino in South Bend is under review by federal officials. Ohio opened land-based casinos this year in Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo.
steady for most while letting them rise at upper incomes. The bill “would pass overwhelmingly,” Reid predicted, and said the Ohio Republican won’t change his mind because he fears it might cost him re-election as speaker when the new Congress convenes next week. Boehner seems “to care more about keeping his speakership than keeping the nation on a firm financial footing,” he said in remarks on the Senate floor. A few hours later, McConnell expressed frustration and blamed the standoff on Obama and the Democrats. “Republicans have bent over backwards. We stepped way, way out of our comfort zone,” he said, referring to GOP offers to accept higher tax rates on some taxpayers. “We wanted an agreement, but we had no takers. The phone never rang, and so here we are five days from the new year and we might finally start talking,” McConnell said. Still, he warned: “Republicans aren’t about to write a blank check for anything the Democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff.” Brendan Buck, a spokesman for Boehner, responded in a similar vein to Reid’s comments. “Harry
Stutzman says House bill avoids ‘fiscal cliff’ WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman issued a statement Thursday urging President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Stutzman Harry Reid to avoid the “fiscal cliff” by approving legislation the House of Representatives already has passed that would prevent tax increases on families, small businesses and family farms: “The House of Representatives has passed legislation to stop Reid should talk less and legislate more if he wants to avert the fiscal cliff. The House has already passed legislation to do so,” he said, referring to a measure that extends existing cuts at all income levels. Addressing the GOP rank and file by conference call, Boehner said the next move is up to the Senate, which has yet to act on House-
the ‘fiscal cliff’ and the largest tax increase in our nation’s history,” Stutzman said. “It’s time for the Senate to take up these measures and the president to sign them into law. The quickest way to stop the largest tax hike in American history is for President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to pass our legislation that would prevent it. “Instead of allowing massive tax hikes on families and small businesses, we need to provide certainty by extending the current tax rates for all Americans, and the House has done just that,” Stutzman said. passed bills to retain expiring tax cuts at all income levels and replace across-the-board spending cuts with targeted savings aimed largely at social programs. “The House will take this action on whatever the Senate can pass — but the Senate must act,” he said, according to a participant in the call.

Briefly • Trojan QB Barkley to miss bowl game EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Matt Barkley came to Southern California as a hotshot recruit, seemingly destined to be the Trojans’ next star quarterback. For the most part he delivered on that promise during a recordbreaking four-year run as USC’s starter. Barkley, though, won’t get the chance to give a grand finale. He won’t play in the Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech on New Year’s Eve because of a lingering injury to his right shoulder. Doctor’s didn’t clear him to play, coach Lane Kiffin said. “It’s a tough day,” Barkley said. “As you heard from Coach Kiffin I won’t be playing on the 31st. I’ve worked as hard as I could to get back for this game, but nature’s not allowing it and the doctors aren’t allowing it, which is the most important thing. They’re looking out for my best interest, and I trust their judgment in how things have turned out. Kiffin said Max Wittek will start. The redshirt freshman will be making his second career start.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Bears linebacker Lance Briggs insisted all he’s thinking about is Chicago beating the Detroit Lions and reaching the playoffs. The idea that this could be the last go-around with his coaches and some teammates? The seven-time Pro Bowler said he’s not thinking about what might happen if the Bears (9-6) lose Sunday at Detroit. They’re in danger of missing the playoffs for the fifth time in six years, and even if they beat the Lions, they would need help from rival Green Bay. If they don’t reach the postseason, there is speculation that coach Lovie Smith could be gone. Brian Urlacher has an expiring contract and might be on his way out, too, but Briggs wasn’t thinking about those possibilities. “My job right now is to focus on beating the Detroit Lions,” he said Thursday. “I think that’s what all of our jobs are right no w. That’s what we need to focus on — trying to get ourselves into the postseason.” These are awkward times for the Bears. They’re in a situation they never would have envisioned after a 7-1 start, trying to slip into the playoffs and in need of a big assist even if they do their part against the Lions. They would also need Green Bay to beat or tie Minnesota. Chicago could also get in with a tie if the P ackers beat the Vikings, but if they don’t make it, there’s a feeling that an era could be ending. If management is ready to pull the plug on Smith, special teams coordinator Dave Toub urged them to reconsider. “Lovie’s a great coach,” he said. “He needs to stay here.” If the speculation is bothering Smith, Toub doesn’t see it. “He’s been steady,” Toub said. “We’ve been very lucky — the Chicago Bears are very lucky — to have Lovie Smith. You better realize that. Everybody better
Seven Garrett players earned honors on the All-Allen County Athletic Conference boys soccer team, chosen recently by conference coaches. Senior goalkeeper Kele Jennings repeated on the first team. He was joined on the first team by senior defender Jennings Logan Weyrick, junior midfielder Dayton Sweet and junior forward Karsten Cooper. Junior defender Ashton Castator, and junior midfielders Kaleb Hoover and Blake Western were Weyrick chosen for the second team. Carson White of Heritage and I Sar of Woodlan were also repeat first-team choices. AP

realize that.” It’s not just Smith’s job possibly on the line. The rest of the staff could be gone, too, but defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said he’s not worrying about that. He sees a game coming up that the Bears can’t afford to lose. He sees a once-promising season coming down to this — one final chance — and sees no time to worry about the what-ifs. “To me, it’s not difficult at all,” he said. “You’ve got a job at hand, do your job. Do what men are supposed to do.” Offensive coordinator Mike Tice seems to be taking more of a Zen-like approach. If he’s feeling
more pressure, he’s keeping it to himself. “That would be bad because then the guys would think I’m uptight,” he said. “So I don’t want to be uptight. That’s the worst thing that I can be is uptight.” Briggs put in a plug for Smith and said the players want to win this one for him. More than that, though, he doesn’t want to see the wrecking ball hit the Bears. “More than just Lovie,” he said. “You want to win it for us. Win it for us. If you’ve enjoyed your time here in Chicago and the way that Lovie has treated you and us together and this camaraderie that we have then win for that.”

Megatron eyeing 2,000 ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The smile has rarely left Calvin Johnson’s face since he broke Jerry Rice’s NFL record for receiving yards in a single season against Atlanta on Dec. 22. Don’t let Johnson’s smile fool you. Underneath that cheery expression, there’s a fierce competitor who wants to make Rice’s accomplishments a distant second to his own effort this year. Johnson’s record-setting night against the Falcons put him at 1,892 yards for the season, just 108 yards shy of the 2,000 receiving yard plateau. The Lions wide receiver doesn’t normally focus on his own achievements but he admitted Thursday that he wanted to reach the milestone to ensure that no one challenged his record for a very long time. It “would be big — kind of almost put that (record) away for a while,” he said. “All records are meant to be broken, but it would take a long time for somebody to
come and get that. You never know. It could happen next year, but it would be a tough (record to break).” Getting the yards he needs to break the 2,000-yard mark won’t be easy won’t be easy for Johnson against a Bears team that held him to a season-low three catches for 34 yards on 11 targets when Chicago beat Detroit 13-7 on Oct. 22. Asked why Chicago was able to limit his effectiveness, Johnson credited Bears’ defensive coordinator - and Johnson’s former head coach in Detroit - Rod Marinelli for designing pass coverage schemes that aren’t easy for him to anticipate. “(Chicago does) a great job with their safeties and bringing them down really late (to challenge receivers),” he said. “From film, we’ve seen games they haven’t done it as much, but for some reason when we see them, they do a lot of disguising (coverages), which makes it harder (to get open).”
It’s also worth noting that Chicago will be able to devote more attention to stopping Johnson than they did in the teams’ first meeting of the season because of season-ending injuries to receivers Nate Burleson, Titus Young, and Ryan Broyles. Lions coach Jim Schwartz admits that his current receiving corps has forced him to rely heavily on Johnson’s production, and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan says he will have to find creative ways to create space for quarterback Matthew Stafford to get Johnson the ball. “We’re obviously going to have to put (Johnson) in different positions (on the field),” Linehan said. “There’s going to be even more attention on him with our receiving depth the way it is. Guys have got to be good around him. But I think he’ll still have a productive game the way he’s locked in.”
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is tackled by Atlanta defender Dunta Robinson (23) last week. Johnson needs 108 yards to be the first receiver to 2,000 for season against the Bears Sunday.
Steelers defensive wizard LeBeau returning PITTSBURGH (AP) — Armed with a promise from his beloved defensive coordinator that he wouldn’t retire without first informing his players, Ryan Clark threatened to avoid Dick LeBeau. “I didn’t want to hear it, so I’ve told him, ‘If you try to lea ve, well, you didn’t see me and tell me, so you can’t,’” said Clark, the Steelers’ free safety. “‘That would make you not to be a man of your word, and I know you as such.’”
Clark needn’t worry. The 75year-old LeBeau has every intention of returning in 2013 for what would be a 55th consecutive season in the NFL. LeBeau opened his first meeting of the week with his defense by telling players he’ll come back for a 10th season as Pittsburgh’s defensive coordinator. LeBeau, a Hall of Famer, publicly will only say his status is
in the hands of head coach Mik e Tomlin. But with the defense ranked No. 1 in the NFL for the second consecutive season and fifth time in nine years, there’s little reason to think Tomlin would make a change. “Let’s just say I really like Pittsburgh and I really like working for the Steelers,” LeBeau said after practice Thursday. “Coach Tomlin will tell you if he wants me back or not. It will be up
to Mike.” Asked as a follow-up if he would come back if asked, LeBeau smiled and said, “I love Pittsburgh.” The city has come to love LeBeau, too, after he orchestrated a defense that has ranked in the top five of the league in 10 of his 11 seasons as defensive coordinator. LeBeau also held the job in 199596 under former head coach Bill Cowher.

Falcons beaten in bowl BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
So what if San Jose State lost its coach before the Military Bowl. David Fales was still the quarterback, and that was plenty. The dart-throwing junior started strong and finished stronger in the wind and cold at RFK Stadium. Fales, who led the nation in completion percentage during the regular season, completed 33 of 43 passes for 395 yards and two touchdowns Thursday in the No. 24 Spartans’ 29-20 win over Bowling Green. Fales led the drive that set up Austin Lopez’s 27-yard field goal with 4:43 remaining, and De’Leon Eskridge’s 1-yard run with 2:34 left provided the insurance. San Jose State (112), in the national rankings for the first time since 1975, capped the year with a sevengame winning streak for its first 11-win season since 1940, a remarkable turnaround for a program that was 1-12 just two years ago in Mike MacIntyre’s first season as coach. But MacIntyre left earlier this month for a bigger payday at Colorado, leaving defensive coordinator Kent
San Jose State defender Cullen Newsome (3 9) tackles Bowling Green wide receiver Chris Gallon during the first half of the Military B owl Thursday.
Baer in charge for the bowl. Baer was interested in the job full-time, but the school instead hired San Diego’s Ron Caragher, who attended the game as an observer. Belk Bowl Cincinnati 48, Duke 34 Brendon Kay threw for 332 yards and a Belk Bowlrecord four touchdowns, and Cincinnati capitalized on Duke’s inept play in the closing minutes to beat the Blue Devils 48-34 on Thursday night. Duke appeared to have the game in hand and was driving for the go-ahead score — and its first bowl victory since 1961 — but the final 80 seconds proved disastrous. With the game
tied at 34 and the Blue Devils positioning themselves for a winning field goal, running back Josh Snead fumbled at the Cincinnati 5-yard line with 1:20 left and Bearcats defensive lineman John Williams recovered. Kay then connected with tight end Travis Kelce on an 83-yard touchdown strike down the middle with 44 seconds left for the go-ahead score. Cincinnati (10-3) sealed it on the next series when Maalik Bomar came crashing into Duke quarterback Sean Renfree, forcing a deflection that Nick Temple returned 55 yards for a touchdown.

THE EXPERT k @s
I hope all your Christmases were bright and filled with joy, family and food. A couple of gifts don’t hurt either. One, it does my heart so much good to give. Two, I find stocking stuffers to be so underrated. I hope your time away from school or your own personal workshop is being cherished in so many ways. But for the basketballers and wrestlers in Indiana, they are not spending two weeks or more hanging out at home and nibbling at leftovers in their groovy new pajamas. It’s a fun time of year on the local sports scene. Most of our teams are being tested and learning what they need to do to get better in the second half of their seasons. A large majority of the teams are playing in holiday tournaments of some kind. A variety of unfamiliar foes will include some of the best basketball teams and wrestlers in the state. So shake off the first snowstorm of the season and safely hit the gyms over the next couple of days. What a bargain it will be. Oh, by the way, Happy New Year! 1.

Matsui retires from baseball NEW YORK (AP) — Free agent slugger Hideki Matsui retired Thursday from professional baseball, saying he is no longer able to perform at the level that made him a star in two countries. The 2009 World Series MVP with the New York Yankees and a three-time Central League MVP with the Tokyo Yomiuri Giants struggled in a brief stint with the Tampa Bay Rays last season and recently made up his mind to call it a career after 20 years — the first 10 in Japan. Despite choosing to make the announcement in New York because the city was special to him, the nearly hour-long news conference
was conducted only in Japanese and was broadcast live to his home country, where it was 7 a.m. Friday. A Japanese reporter translated portions of the event for the four American baseball writers in attendance. Before he left for New York in 2003, Matsui told his fans in Japan that he would give his life to playing in the major leagues, give whatever he had, the reporter said. “Today is the day he put a period to that.” In front of more than 15 cameras and dozens of Japanese reporters, many of whom detailed every aspect of his career in the United States, the outfielder/designated hitter
gave a 12-minute speech before answering questions for about 40 minutes more, betraying little emotion except for that sly smile he flashed during his playing days. Nicknamed Godzilla, Matsui was already perhaps the most popular player of his generation in Japan when he signed a three-year, $21 million contract with the Yankees. While Seattle’s Ichiro Suzuki appeared to shy away from the attention, Matsui walked right into the spotlight and embraced the scrutiny. Playing for the Yankees was, “one of the best things that happened to him in his life,” the Japanese reporter quoted Matsui as saying.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Nets’ Johnson coach of month in November, fired in December NEW YORK (AP) — Coach of the month in November, out of a job by New Year’s. The Brooklyn Nets have elevated expectations this season, and a .500 record wasn’t good enough. Coach Avery Johnson was fired Thursday, his team having lost 10 of 13 games after a strong start to its first season in Brooklyn. “We don’t have the same fire now than we did when we were 11-4,” general manager Billy King said at a news confer- Johnson ence in East Rutherford, N.J. “I tried to talk to Avery about it and we just can’t figure it out. The same pattern kept on happening.” Assistant P.J. Carlesimo will coach the Nets on an interim basis, starting Friday night with a home game against Charlotte. King said the Nets might reach out to other candidates, but for now the job was Carlesimo’s. The GM wouldn’t comment on a report that the team planned to get in touch with former Lakers coach Phil Jackson. Johnson was in the final year of a threeyear, $12 million contract. “It’s a really disappointing day for me and my family. It’s my wife’s birthday. It’s not a great birthday gift,” Johnson said. “I didn’t see this coming. But this is ownership’s decision. It’s part of the business. Fair or unfair, it’s time for a new voice and hopefully they’ll get back on track.”
Seahawks DB Sherman wins appeal, eligible for playoffs RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman won his appeal of a four-game suspension for use of performance enhancing substances on Thursday, making him eligible for the NFL playoffs. Sherman posted “I won,” on his Twitter account Thursday morning, followed by teammates tweeting their congratulations. Sherman added, “Thank you (at)nfl for upholding the truth! To the 12s Thank you your faith is rewarded! Thank you lord.” The decision was made by former NFL executive Bob Wallace. Sherman was steadfast since news broke of his pending suspension that he believed he would win on appeal. Sherman’s appeal was based on errors in the chain of custody of his sample and that there were mistakes made by the tester. Sherman made his appeal late last week. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in an email the league is reviewing the decision, but was declining comment due to confidentiality provisions. The decision makes Sherman eligible for the Seahawks season finale against St. Louis and, more importantly, the playoffs. Seattle has played the last three weeks without fellow starting cornerback Brandon Browner who is serving a four-game suspension for a banned substance violation. Browner’s suspension expires after Sunday’s game against the Rams, so Seattle will have both of its starting cornerbacks available for the postseason. “Congrats to Richard Sherman for winning his appeal! Happy for him & it’ll be great to have him with us as we mo ve forward,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll tweeted Thursday morning.

Collage brings back painful memories
DUSTIN BY STEVE KELLEY & JEFF PARKER
DEAR ABBY: My daughter was repeatedly dateraped at the age of 16. Her predator threatened to kill her if she ever told, so she kept it to herself until she could get away from him. It was a very scary time in her life, but with the help of counseling she is working through it and moving on with her life. The problem is, while visiting with my in-laws it was pointed out to us that my mother-in-law had made a collage of pictures and included in it the person who raped my daughter. In all, there are five pictures of him in group settings. When my husband asked her calmly to remove them, she refused. She says it would punish the other grandchildren if she removed the pictures, and it would ‘‘ruin her collage.’’ We have asked her three times, but she refuses to budge. She says WE all need counseling and that the request is completely out of line. Do

to that request is also negative, I wouldn’t blame you if you went there very rarely, if ever. DEAR ABBY: My husband of eight years will not resolve his foot odor problem. We live in a small apartment, and it’s humiliating when we have company and half the apartment smells like stinky feet. He refuses to wear socks, and his solution in winter is to open all the windows and turn on the fan as soon as he returns from work. The ‘‘airing out’’ never completely gets rid of the smell — and I freeze! How can I get him to change? —FED UP IN DEAR FED UP: You obviously can’t change your husband, but you don’t have to risk getting pneumonia, either. Shoe repair shops sell deodorizing products. Or buy a large container of baking soda, and when your husband removes his shoes, dump a cupful into each one. They next day the smell should be gone.

Pain level main factor in opting for surger y removing damaged bone or joints and replacing them with artificial, or prosthetic, joints. The artificial joints provide patients with a better range of motion and more stability. This makes everyday tasks like writing much easier. Wrist arthroplasty ASK can be done an inpatient DOCTOR K. as or outpatient procedure. Dr. Anthony Sometimes general Komaroff anesthesia is used; other times, you are awake, but feel no pain because the nerves from your hand are numbed. In the surgery, the surgeon removes the first row of carpal bones (the bones that lie
between the forearm and the hand). Then the surgeon shapes the end of the radius (the main forearm bone) to fit one part of the artificial joint, which is attached to the end of the bone. The other part of the artificial joint fits over carpal bones in the wrist. A plastic spacer fits between the two components. Now the two artificial joint surfaces move easily against each other, creating a flexible and pain-free wrist. People with rheumatoid arthritis are most likely to benefit from a total wrist replacement, but it can also help people with osteoarthritis or traumatic arthritis. Wrist replacement is major surgery and recovery takes several weeks. If you’re considering joint replacement, weigh the benefits and risks. Age is an important factor. But the final decision is based on your level of pain and how much your wrist stiffness and

DEAR DOCTOR K: We’ve all heard of hip and knee replacements — but is it true that you can have your wrist replaced too? DEAR READER: We like to think of ourselves as irreplaceable, but the truth is that some of our parts are replaceable. The joint replacements you hear most about are those of the knees and hips, but surgeons also have been replacing hand joints for decades. Joint replacement (arthroplasty) in the hands is actually more challenging than in larger joints such as the hips or knees. That’s because of the hands’ intricate bone structure and smaller joint size. Joint replacement surgery in the hands is a delicate procedure. You wouldn’t use the word “delicate” to describe a hip or knee replacement, even though the surgery does require considerable precision. Wrist arthroplasty involves

Egypt’s opposition leaders under investigation CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s chief prosecutor ordered an investigation on Thursday into allegations that opposition leaders committed treason by inciting supporters to overthrow Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The probe by a Morsi-appointed prosecutor was launched a day after the president called for a dialogue with the opposition to heal rifts opened in the bitter f ight over an Islamist-drafted constitu-
tion just approved in a referendum. The opposition decried the investigation as a throwback to Hosni Mubarak’s regime, when the law was used to smear and silence opponents. The probe was almost certain to sour the already tense political atmosphere in the country. The allegations were made initially in a complaint by at least two lawyers sent to the chief prosecutor earlier this month. They
targeted opposition leaders Mohammed ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace laureate and former head of the U.N. nuclear agency, former Foreign Minister Amr Moussa, and Hamdeen Sabahi. Both Moussa and Sabahi were presidential candidates who competed against Morsi in the last election. There was no immediate comment by any of the three opposition leaders named but the opposition dismissed the allega-
tions. Emad Abu Ghazi, secretarygeneral of the opposition party ElBaradei heads, said the investigation was “an indication of a tendency toward a police state and the attempt to eliminate political opponents.” He said the ousted Mubarak regime dealt with the opposition in the same way. Mubarak jailed his opponents, including liberals and Islamists. International rights groups said
their trials did not meet basic standards of fairness. ElBaradei was a leading figure behind the uprising against Mubarak and at one point, he w as allied with the Brotherhood against the old regime. The investigation does not necessarily mean charges will be filed against the leaders. But it is unusual for state prosecutors to investigate such broad charges against high-profile figures.
Storm blows through East; 200,000 in dark in Arkansas
A trio of sledders make their way down the side of a hill at Fort Harrison State Park Thursday in Indianapolis. Several
sledders enjoyed the hill after the area received 7.5 inches of snow.
Hoosiers still digging out Town about 50 miles south of Indy blanketed with 13 inches of snow INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana residents continued digging out Thursday from a winter storm that brought life to a standstill in southern parts of the state where blizzard conditions buried some areas under a foot of snow — their heaviest accumulations in several years. Greene County Emergency Management director Roger Axe said the 12 inches of wet snow that fell Wednesday on the southwestern Indiana county left local roads so mired the county’s sheriff got stuck for about an hour before his car was freed. Axe said he expects road crews to finish up Friday clearing county roads of the region’s heaviest snowfall since a March 1996 storm dumped 22 inches of snow. But he said it may take residents longer to finish
clearing their driveways. “We’re just digging out, slow but sure,” Axe said. In Indianapolis, where the storm’s 7.5-inch snowfall was the deepest in nearly four years, officials hired 350 private snowremoval trucks to help clear residential roads. Department of Public Works spokeswoman Lesley Malone said those contractors allowed the city to clear an additional 4,000 miles of residential streets in areas that lack neighborhood associations that handle snow-plowing duties. City crews cleared nearly another 7,000 miles of streets, she said. Malone said 90 trucks were out again Thursday salting and treating cleared roads and officials were urging motorists to slow down due to the risk of roads freezing and creating

dangerous, hard-to-see sheets of ice. The National Weather Service released a snowfall map Thursday showing that Wednesday’s storm buried four pockets of southwestern, south-central and southeastern Indiana with about a foot of snow. The storm dropped up to 3 inches of snow an hour in some areas. The town of Ellettsville about 50 miles south of Indianapolis was blanketed by 13 inches of snow — the most of any Indiana community, the weather service said. Jim Ragle, street commissioner in the town of 5,000 residents northwest of Bloomington, said his crews worked all day Wednesday and overnight to clear the Monroe Count town’s roads. “We’ve got a lot of snow piles around, but other than that we’re in pretty good shape,” he said. “We’re all ready for the next storm now, I guess.”
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A muted version of a winter storm that has killed more than a dozen people across the eastern half of the country plodded across the Northeast on Thursday, trapping airliners in snow or mud and frustrating travelers still trying to return home after Christmas. The storm, which was blamed for at least 16 deaths farther south and west, brought plenty of wind, rain and snow to the Northeast when it blew in Wednesday night. Lights generally remained on and cars mostly stayed on the road, unlike many harder-hit places including Arkansas, where 200,000 homes and businesses lost power. By afternoon, the precipitation had stopped in parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Massachusetts, though snow continued to fall in upstate New York and northern New England. Parts of snow-savvy New Hampshire expected as much as 18 inches. Dale Lamprey, who was
clearing off the sidewalk outside the legislative office building in Concord, already had several hours of shoveling under his belt by 8:30 a.m. Thursday and didn’t expect it to get much better. “I’m going to be shoveling all day, just trying to keep up with the snow,” he said. “Which is impossible.” The Northeast’s heaviest snowfall was expected to be in northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and inland sections of several New England states before the storm heads into Canada on Friday, National Weather Service spokesman David Roth said. While the East Coast’s largest cities — New York, Philadelphia and Boston — saw mostly high winds and cold rain, other areas experienced a messy mix of rain and snow that slowed commuters and those still heading home from holiday trips. Some inbound flights were delayed in Philadelphia and New York’s LaGuardia,
but the weather wasn’t leading to delays at other major East Coast airports. Forty-two students traveling to London and Dublin were stuck in the Nashville airport thanks to weather in the Northeast. The frustrated students, from universities in Tennessee and Kentucky, were supposed to leave Wednesday and arrive in London on Thursday. Joe Woolley, spokesman for the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad, said he hopes he can get them there just one day late. “It’s a two-week program, so it’s shortened already,” he said. On New York’s Long Island, a Southwest Airlines jet bound for Tampa, Fla., veered off a taxiway and got stuck in mud Thursday morning. Officials said there were no injuries to the 129 passengers and five crew members. Though the area received heavy rain overnight, Southwest spokesman Paul Flanigan said it wasn’t clear whether that played a role.
Hawaii’s new senator sworn in WASHINGTON (AP) — Brian Schatz symbolized a generational change in Hawaii’s Senate delegation, taking the hand of his new colleague, 88-year-old Sen. Daniel Akaka, moments before being sworn in Thursday as the successor to the late Democratic Sen. Daniel Inouye. Vice President Joe Biden administered the oath of office in a chamber peopled by a dozen Democratic senators and a handful of Republicans. As he walked up the center aisle to meet Biden,

Schatz, 40, took Akaka’s hand and helped the frail Democratic senator, who is retiring, stay at his side. Schatz had flown to Washington hours earlier on Air Force One with President Barack Obama. Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie named Schatz, who had been lieutenant governor, to succeed Inouye. Inouye died last week of respiratory complications at the age of 88. The selection went against the dying wishes of Inouye, who is revered in Hawaii politics. He had
wanted Rep. Colleen Hanabusa to succeed him. Schatz is a former state representative and onetime chairman of the state Democratic Party who ran Obama’s 2008 campaign in Hawaii. He said his top priorities in the Senate would be addressing global climate change, preserving federal funds used in Hawaii for things like defense spending and transportation and getting federal recognition for Native Hawaiians to form their own government, similar to many Indian tribes.
