GOP: It’s not over Republicans

GOOD MORNING State’s working poor highlighted in studies INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A pair of reports released last week highlighted different angles of the continuing troubles faced by Indiana’s working poor and raised questions about who ends up paying for their safety net. The Kaiser Family Foundation found that 182,000 residents fall into a health insurance coverage “gap” because the state has not expanded Medicaid coverage and a jobs study from the University of California, Berkeley found almost half of Indiana’s fast food workers are also receiving public assistance. The two reports provided sobering details as the state continues to struggle to pull out of the recession — the unemployment rate has hovered above 8 percent for more than a year now while the median income has declined over the past decade. It also helped shine some light on why the state’s leaders have been so heartily focused on improving job training programs statewide. “It’s not a good state to be poor, or out of work, or uninsured,” said Morton Marcus, a veteran Indiana economist and former professor at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. Putting the health care gap in context: there are 182,000 adults earning between roughly $2,700 and $11,500 a year who will not receive federal health insurance. That excludes poor residents with children and Indiana’s elderly, who receive Medicare. The Kaiser report found that Indiana’s numbers are not out of step with other states which have not expanded Medicaid under the federal health care law, but also noted that in the states which did approve an expansion, there is no insurance gap. That shortfall could be temporary here, however. Republican Gov. Mike Pence, long a vocal critic of traditional Medicaid, has said he would like to see the state expand the Healthy Indiana Plan to cover residents earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level, of roughly $15,400.

Putting it all together Angola man first in state to assemble largest puzzle BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — Piece by piece — like any long-term labor of love — the world’s largest puzzle went together. It was assembled in the basement of a rural Angola home by Steve Briskey and occasional assistants. More than 14 feet long, the 24,000-piece creation took three years and four months to complete — a total of 819.45 hours. Briskey kept track of everything, from the moment he opened the box and mixed together four separate bags of 8,000 pieces each. The bags held the four quadrants of the puzzle, and Briskey decided he wanted to combine them for difficulty. A jigsaw aficionado, he found out about the Guinness World Record puzzle when he read an



article in a newspaper on Dave Landwehr of Ottoville, Ohio, the first person in his state to complete it in January 2008. “I wanted to be the first in Indiana,” said Briskey. He achieved his goal, and has logged his success at worldslargestpuzzle. com on the Hall of Fame blog. A California family was the first to put it together in 2007 and the first individual to complete the puzzle was a woman from Belgium. Briskey has videos and photographs of the progression of the puzzle, which was assembled

making Obamacare their next target WASHINGTON (AP) — “Obamacare” escaped unharmed from the government shutdown Republicans hoped would stop it, but just as quickly they have opened a new line of attack — one handed to them by the administration itself. While Congress was arguing, President Barack Obama’s plan to expand coverage for the uninsured suffered a self-inflicted wound. A computer system seemingly designed by gremlins gummed up the first open enrollment season. After nearly three weeks, it’s still not fixed. Republicans hope to ride that and other defects they see in the law into the 2014 congressional elections. Four Democratic senators are facing re-election for the first time since they voted for the Affordable Care Act, and their defeat is critical to GOP aspirations for a Senate majority. Democrats say that’s just more wishful thinking, if not obsession. Although Obama’s law remains divisive, only 29 percent of the public favors its complete repeal, according to a recent Gallup poll. The business-oriented wing of the Republican party wants to move on to other issues. Americans may be growing weary of the health care fight. “This is the law of the land at this point,” said Michael Weaver, a self-employed photographer from rural southern Illinois who’s been uninsured for about a year. “We need to stop the arguing and move forward to make it work.” It took him about a week and half, but Weaver kept going back to the website until he was able to open an account and apply for a tax credit that will reduce his premiums. He’s not completely finished because he hasn’t selected an insurance plan, but he’s been able to browse options. It beats providing page after page of personal health information to insurance companies, Weaver said. Under the new law, insurers have to accept people with health problems. Weaver is in his mid-50s, with high blood pressure and high cholesterol, but otherwise in good health. He says those SEE GOP, PAGE A6

Shutdown is over; now what’s next? WASHINGTON (AP) — Sixteen days in October could change everything, or not much at all. Will the partial government shutdown prove to be the turning point after three years of partisan skirmishing in Washington? Or was it just a halftime show to fire up the players? With federal employees back at work for now, lawmakers are getting a chance to find a compromise on spending cuts and settle their vast differences. If they fail, they risk a repeat shutdown in mid-January, followed a few weeks later by the recurring danger of the government defaulting on its debts. A look at where things stand after the shutdown:

The players • President Barack Obama won a round by refusing to back down. The public didn’t applaud his

handling of the crisis, but scored congressional Republicans even lower. Obama’s overall approval rating held steady, and so did the nation’s divided opinion of his health care law. He strengthened his hand for next time. • House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, conceded a loss for his party. But personally he came out OK. Boehner placated his boisterous tea party-backed members by letting them take a doomed stand against the health law, then got credit for finally allowing the shutdown to end on mostly Democratic votes. • Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, made a name for himself by leading the tea party charge toward shutdown. About half of the respondents in a recent Associated Press-GfK poll knew enough about Cruz to form an opinion — impressive for a senator elected less than a year ago. The bad news for Cruz? Their opinion was negative by a 2-1 margin.

• Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky is catching heat for helping reopen the government. McConnell agrees with many of his fellow GOP senators that the shutdown was bad strategy and must not be repeated. That puts him on the wrong side of the party’s tea party wing, and a tea party-backed candidate is challenging McConnell in the primary for his Senate seat.

The tea party The tea party, billed as a movement of the people, is getting slammed in national polls. Democrats say its belligerent tactics have been discredited. Much of the Republican establishment agrees. Tea party lawmakers don’t care. Tea party favorites in Congress are more focused on the opinions of voters back home, their big

money supporters and outside groups, such as Heritage Action, that influence elections. Cruz, criticized by many fellow Republicans for fomenting the standoff, says he’s content to be “reviled in Washington, D.C., and appreciated in Texas.” Cruz says he remains as determined as ever. “I would do anything, and I will continue to do anything I can,” he said, “to stop the train wreck that is Obamacare.”

Role of government Did Americans learn anything from the partial shutdown? Obama says it showed just how many things, large and small, the government does to help people. Conservatives saw the opposite lesson — that federal workers can disappear without being missed. There’s some evidence for both ideas. SEE SHUTDOWN, PAGE A6

‘Sexist’ emails alleged from ex-Ivy Tech board chairman INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The former board chairman of Ivy Tech Community College sent emails with political diatribes, sexist jokes and nude pictures of women to state officials before college officials asked him to stop earlier this year, a report Sunday said. V. Bruce Walkup sent the emails to officials including Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder; Jeff Terp, Ivy Tech’s senior vice president for engagement Jeff Terp, Earl Goode, then the chief of staff to former Gov. Mitch Daniels; and Rob Carter Jr., the former director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources who’s now Ivy tech’s security chief, The Indianapolis Star reported. One email suggested a skunk as a new symbol for President Barack Obama: “It is half black, half white, and everything it does stinks.” Terp and Snyder did not open any of the emails, Ivy Tech told the Star, which obtained the emails in a public records request. Walkup’s emails continued for at least six months, the Star said. Walkup was asked to stop sending such emails earlier this year, Ivy Tech spokesman Jeff Fanter said. Walkup’s messages are “blocked and deleted,” Terp

said in an email to the Star. Walkup issued a statement through the Ivy Tech saying “I do apologize for any misconceptions or persons I may have offended with these questionable emails.” Walkup, a former IndyCar driver and bank executive, was appointed to the unpaid board position by former Gov. Mitch Daniels in 2005. Daniels, who is now president of Purdue University, said he was unaware of the emails but acknowledged “Bruce Walkup is sort of a salty guy.” Walkup no longer is chairman but remains on the Ivy Tech board. It’s uncertain whether Walkup violated Ivy Tech’s sexual harassment policy because he is an unpaid appointee, not an employee. The policy prohibits “sex-oriented oral or written (including electronic) ‘kidding’ or abuse” and circulating photographs of a sexual nature. Carter, while director of the DNR, extended special privileges to Walkup at least once last fall. He arranged a duck hunting trip with Walkup on public lands without going through a drawing required of other hunters, the Star said. DNR officials said they are investigating whether any rules were broken.

AUBURN — Habitat for Humanity of Northeast Indiana has three families who have completed the requirements and are on the waiting list for a home. The agency that serves DeKalb, Noble and Steuben counties also has an additional six families who have been board-approved for a home and are working on required classes and sweat equity hours. “It is such an exciting time for us” said board member Marianne Stanley. “But it is also frustrating because we simply don’t have the funding for these

families that are working so hard to make their dream of stable housing a reality.” Habitat is planning a major event with the goal of raising at least $60,000. ManMania is a two-day event that will take place Jan. 11 and 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the National Military History Center and Kruse Automotive Horse Power and Carriage Museum. The event’s primary audience will be adult males. Activities will include demonstrations, tough-man contests, vendors, food and drink, museum admission and a Habitat ReStore section.

Habitat is looking for event sponsors. Sponsorship levels are $5,000, Super Man Sponsor; $3,000 Mega Man Sponsor; $2,000 Tough Man Sponsor; and $1,000 Manly Man Sponsor. There are multiple sponsorship benefits, including company listings in event brochures, posters and banners, signage at the event, vendor table space, event tickets and more.

Stanley said Habitat’s northeast Indiana chapter holds mortgages for 54 partner families in DeKalb, Noble and Steuben counties. “We know how to build, and we know how to make family dreams become a reality,” Stanley said. “We just need funding to make it happen.” Tickets for ManMania will go on sale Nov. 1 and cost $20 apiece. Call the Habitat office at 925-2508 for ticket information. For sponsorship information, contact Stanley at or call the Habitat office.

Fall color signals changes for birds Every October, at least once usually on a day when the bright blue sky of the fall season is masked by clouds, I read about the chemical changes occurring then in tree leaves. These are the changes that result in the colors of fall. The changes involve the the OUTDOOR loss, breakdown NOTES of chlorothe Neil Case phyl, green color of spring and summer, and that exposes chemicals called carotenoids, which have the yellow and orange and brown pigments of fall. At the same time, other chemicals are being formed, chemicals called anthocyanins, and those produce the red and purple pigments of fall. When I was very young, I was told that Jack Frost spread the colors of fall, painting leaves red and yellow and orange on frosty nights. That didn’t seem right to me even when I was very young, because some of the leaves always changed color before there was any frost, before I waked in the morning and saw frost on my bedroom window. Decreasing length of day, autumn’s changing colors, falling leaves speckling the ground with red and yellow and brown, the flowers of Queen Anne’s lace turning brown and curling up into shapes like bird nests, and goldenrod blossoms losing their gold and turning to brown are all signs of fall. Farmers harvesting their corn and soybeans leaving

fields of stubble, all these things are a backdrop for things that interest me more, the activities of birds. There is no precise time when bird activities we associate with summer change to activities of fall. Shorebirds that nest farther north, in the tundra, sandpipers and dowitchers and yellowlegs, finish nesting and begin migrating south while robins and mourning doves, goldfinches and catbirds and many other of our resident songbirds are still feeding nestlings or fledglings. The first conspicuous bird activity indicating a change from summer to fall bird, other than an occasional flock of shore birds, is starlings and male red-winged blackbirds gathering in flocks. During the day, these flocks drift about the countryside, landing in fields and feeding.

It’s the time to go to lakes and look for flocks of ducks.”

The starlings feed on insects and seeds on the ground, the redwings often go to fields of corn where they feed on the ears and make themselves unpopular with the farmers. At dusk, flocks of each join together in communal roosts. Robins disappear from lawns as tree leaves begin to change color. They, too, gather in flocks, but instead of going to fields to feed, they go to woodlots and forests where they scavenge for fruits and insects. Then one day, I realize I haven’t seen a flock of red-winged blackbirds during the day for several days, and I recognize that fall migration is no longer just an occasional flock of shore birds from farther north passing through. This then is the time to get outdoors, to visit woods and look for fall warblers. It’s the time to go to lakes and look for flocks of ducks. On days when the weather is

Notre Dame official may run for U.S. House SOUTH BEND (AP) — A University of Notre Dame official says Democratic Party leaders are encouraging him to run for northern Indiana’s 2nd District U.S. House seat against first-term incumbent Republican Jackie Walorski. Joseph Bock, director of global health training for Notre Dame’s Eck Institute for Global Health, told the South Bend Tribune for a report Sunday that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is encouraging him to run and he could formally announce his candidacy this month. “I’m taking a very serious look at it,” Bock said. The committee and state and district Democratic leaders have been searching

for a candidate to challenge Walorski, who defeated Democrat Brendan Mullen by just 1.4 percent of the vote in 2012 in a district drawn to strongly favor Republicans. Mullen decided not to run again. Bock, 55, said he’s a moderate, anti-abortion Democrat. He served three terms as a state representative in Missouri after defeating a Republican incumbent in 1986. He came to Notre Dame seven years ago after directing Catholic Relief Services programs and relief efforts overseas in Haiti, Thailand, Bosnia and other countries. Bock said his son Nick, a case manager for Sen. Joe Donnelly, recommended him to state Democratic officials.


cold and wintry, it’s the time to drive slowly on country roads hoping to see a flock of snow buntings or Lapland longspurs. I once saw a flock of common redpolls in the grass along the edge of a road. I looked carefully at each bird in the flock as I always do when I see redpolls, hoping to spot a hoary redpoll, a bird I had never seen then and still haven’t. I don’t have to go outdoors to look for fall migrants or winter arrivals. I looked away from my computer screen and out the window at the bird feeder beyond one morning recently, and a red-breasted nuthatch landed on the feeder. White-breasted nuthatches visit that feeder year-round, but a red-breasted is a winter visitor. Does this one in October indicate winter weather is on the way?

Briefs • Bomber kills scores at Baghdad cafe in day of violence BAGHDAD (AP) — A suicide bomber slammed his explosive-laden car Sunday night into a busy cafe in Iraq’s capital, part of a day of violence across the country that killed 45 people, authorities said. The bombing at the cafe in Baghdad’s primarily Shiite Amil neighborhood happened as it was full of customers. The cafe and a nearby juice shop is a favorite hang out in the neighborhood for young people, who filled the area at the time of the explosions. The blast killed 35 people and wounded 45, Iraqi officials said. Violence has been on the rise in Iraq following a deadly crackdown by security forces on a Sunni protest camp in the northern town of Hawijah in April. At least 385 have died in attacks in Iraq so far this month, according to an Associated Press count.

Iranian warns of nuclear pressues TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s parliament speaker warned Sunday that lawmakers could call for stepped-up atomic work if the West presses too hard for concessions in ongoing nuclear negotiations. The message from Ali Larijani — less than a week after talks resumed — appears aimed at both envoys from the West and Iran’s negotiation team, which is led by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. It also highlights the political jockeying inside Iran between backers of moderate-leaning President Hassan Rouhani and hard-liners wary of his outreach to Washington. Larijani’s comments follow appeals by some members of the U.S. Congress to tighten sanctions on Iran despite the nuclear negotiations and historic diplomatic breakthroughs last month, including President Barack Obama’s telephone call to Rouhani. Larijani, meanwhile, told Iran’s representatives that parliament would not permit world powers to impose “special measures� on the country beyond the obligations laid out by the U.N. treaty overseeing nuclear activity, such as U.N. monitoring and inspection.

Tough week for Obamacare rollout WASHINGTON (AP) — Last week, President Barack Obama gathered some of his top advisers in the Oval Office to discuss the problem-plagued rollout of his health care legislation. He told his team the administration had to own up to the fact that there were no excuses for not having the health care website ready to operate on Day One. The admonition from a frustrated president came amid the embarrassing start to sign-ups for the health care insurance exchanges. The president is expected to address the cascade of computer problems today during an event at the White

House. Administration officials say more than 476,000 health insurance applications have been filed through federal and state exchanges. The figures mark the most detailed measure yet of the problem-plagued rollout of the insurance market place. However, the officials continue to refuse to say how many people have actually enrolled in the insurance markets. And without enrollment figures, it’s unclear whether the program is on track to reach the 7 million people projected by the Congressional Budget Office to gain coverage during the

six-month sign-up period. The first three weeks of sign-ups have been marred by a cascade of computer problems, which the administration says it is working around the clock to correct. The rough rollout has been a black eye for Obama, who invested significant time and political capital in getting the law passed during his first term. The officials said technology experts from inside and outside the government are being brought in to work on the glitches, though they did not say how many workers were being added. Officials did say staffing has been increased at call

centers by about 50 percent. As problems persist on the federally run website, the administration is encouraging more people to sign up for insurance over the phone. The officials would not discuss the health insurance rollout by name and were granted anonymity. Despite the widespread problems, the White House has yet to fully explain what went wrong with the online system consumers were supposed to use to sign up for coverage. Administration officials initially blamed a high volume of interest from ordinary Americans for the frozen screens that

many people encountered. Since then, they have also acknowledged problems with software and some elements of the system’s design. Interest in the insurance markets appears to continue to be high. Officials said about 19 million people have visited as of Friday night. Of the 476,000 applications that have been started, just over half have been from the 36 states where the federal government is taking the lead in running the markets. The rest of the applications have come from the 14 states running their own markets, along with Washington, D.C.

Florida asks: How could this escape happen? PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Back in custody after using forged documents to escape their life sentences, two convicted killers were being grilled on Sunday by law enforcement authorities who said they expect to make more arrests in a case that has given both court and corrections officials in Florida a black eye. Among the questions being posed to Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker: Who forged the papers? Who helped you run from police? What other prisoners have gotten away with this? Who was coming from Atlanta to whisk you out of Florida? “I can tell you, there will be more arrests,� Florida

NJ gays deal with new law TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — With the advent of same-sex marriage in New Jersey, couples are thrilled and, in many cases, confused about how to proceed. Advocates and others are claiming that the state of New Jersey did not give ample instructions to town clerks and others on how to administer marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Same-sex marriages were scheduled to begin today at 12:01 a.m. The New Jersey Supreme Court last week refused to delay a lower court order for the state to start recognizing marriages. The case, however, is still on appeal. Several couples planned to marry minutes after the state began recognizing the unions. Yet other said they had not been able to get a license. New Jersey law requires that couples wait three days between obtaining a license.

Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey told a news conference Sunday, hours after Jenkins and Walker, both 34, were arrested without incident at a motel in Panama City. “We will be backtracking to those who helped carry out this fraud and along the way we will be looking closely at anyone who may have helped harbor these fugitives,� Bailey said. Jenkins and Walker, both 34, were captured Saturday night at the Coconut Grove Motor Inn in Panama City Beach, a touristy area of putt-putt courses and go-kart tracks. Hours earlier, their families had held a news conference in Orlando — 350 miles away — urging

them to surrender. The men, who had fled the Orlando area after word of their ruse became public, did not know law enforcement was on the way to Panama City. They were waiting in the motel for someone to arrive from Atlanta to take them out of state, Bailey said, adding that authorities don’t yet know who that person was or where the convicts planned to go. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is working with Georgia authorities to answer those questions, he said. “They had to have had help — a lot of help — to get to where they were last night,� Bailey said. He said the men were unarmed and

didn’t have much money on them. Bailey’s department is pursuing a tip that someone was offering to forge documents for prisoners for $8,000. He said there are at least two other recent cases where prisoners were thwarted trying to use fake documents to escape. “The documents themselves looked good, they looked official,� Bailey said, although they contained the signatures of people who normally don’t deal with release documents,

Kennedy’s vision for mental health unrealized PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The last piece of legislation President John F. Kennedy signed turns 50 this month: the Community Mental Health Act, which helped transform the way people with mental illness are treated and cared for in the United States. Signed on Oct. 31, 1963, weeks before Kennedy was assassinated, the legislation aimed to build mental health centers accessible to all Americans so that those with mental illnesses could be treated while working and living at home, rather than being kept in neglectful and often abusive state institutions, sometimes for years on end. Kennedy said when he signed the bill that the legislation to build 1,500 centers would mean the population of those living in state mental hospitals — at that time more than 500,000 people — could be cut in half. In a special message to Congress earlier that year, he said the idea was to successfully and quickly treat patients in their own communities and then return them to “a useful place in society.” Recent deadly mass shootings, including at the Washington Navy Yard and a Colorado movie theater,

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The lost-and-found items at Indianapolis International Airport are all over the place — sunglasses, paperback books with Fabio on the cover, a mint julep cup with the names of the Kentucky Derby winners since 1875 — and it all gets shunted away into a closet under the main stairway. There it gathers dust and is forgotten. One item, however, airport staffers haven’t forgotten, can’t forget. It’s a cardboard box the size of toaster. It weighs maybe seven pounds. Someone has written on it “PERCY COLVIN,” and in fact, the box’s contents would appear to be Colvin — his earthly remains, his ashes, a fine gray powder. The ashes, or cremains, were left behind in the terminal’s lower level, near baggage claim — in 2010. Somebody turned them in to airport officials, who at first placed them in the lost-andfound but soon transferred them to the security of the airport police department’s

have been perpetrated by men who were apparently not being adequately treated for serious mental illnesses. Those tragedies have focused public attention on the mental health system and made clear that Kennedy’s vision was never fully realized. The legislation did help to usher in positive life-altering changes for people with serious illnesses such as schizophrenia, many of whom now live normal, productive lives with jobs and families. In 1963, the average stay in a state institution for someone with schizophrenia was 11 years. But only half of the proposed centers were ever

built, and those were never fully funded. Meanwhile, about 90 percent of beds have been cut at state hospitals, according to Paul Appelbaum, a Columbia University psychiatry professor and expert in how the law affects the practice of medicine. In many cases, several mental health experts said, that has left nowhere for the sickest people to turn, so they end up homeless, abusing substances or in prison. The three largest mental health providers in the nation today are jails: Cook County in Illinois, Los Angeles County and Rikers Island in New York.

evidence room. They figured someone would come forward to claim the ashes. But three years later, nobody has. First the airport police and then an airport attorney tried to get to the bottom of it by calling the funeral home that handled the arrangements, and the church where the funeral was held. Nothing came of it. They called the Marion County coroner, but Colvin was not a “coroner’s case,” meaning foul play had not been suspected (the death certificate says Colvin died of lung cancer), and so the coroner’s staffers could only shrug. “Maybe it was decedent’s last wish to stay in the airport, or travel the world,” chief deputy coroner Alfarena Ballew told The Indianapolis Star. “You know how people have those wishes to have ashes spread out in the ocean or something. Or maybe the family was attempting to take him home.” Colvin, according to his death certificate, was born, in 1938, in Romulus, Ala., in rural Tuscaloosa County. It is unclear when he moved to Indianapolis, but he may well have been part of the Great Migration, the mostly post-World War II movement of some 7 million blacks from the rural south to northern U.S. cities. Colvin worked as a machinist, according to his death certificate. He was widowed. He had at least two children. They declined to comment for this story. And so what exactly Colvin’s cremains were doing near the airport’s baggage claim in 2010

remains a mystery. It’s possible that in a post-9/11 world with sometimes confusing rules over what a person can and can’t bring onto an airplane there was a mix-up at an airport checkpoint, and Colvin’s cremains were abandoned in a panic, or accidentally. Several years ago at the Indianapolis airport a man attempting to bring his father’s ashes onto a plane created a major stir — after the man had been waived through a checkpoint, a Transportation Security Administration officer had second thoughts and tried to find him, couldn’t find him and so sounded the alarm: 500 people were evacuated and eight flights delayed. Some airlines don’t allow cremains as carry-on. The TSA allows cremains, but with conditions: “If the container is made of a material that generates an opaque image, the Transportation Security Officer will not be able to clearly determine what is inside the container and the container will not be permitted.” Unclaimed cremains aren’t that uncommon. There are laws governing them — in Indiana, funeral homes must hold cremains 60 days before disposing of them but typically hold them much longer. “Funeral directors are loathe to get rid of ashes,” said Curtis Rostad, executive director of the Indiana Funeral Directors Association, “out of, I’d suppose, respect, and the thought that someday someone might show up and want those ashes back.”

DeKalb animals find loving homes Humane Society holds annual fall fundraiser

Campus Corner • Custer graduates from law school, makes dean’s list LANSING, MICH. — Lori Custer of Garrett graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Mich., on Sept. 22. Custer made the dean’s list and received a certificate of appreciation for work done in the Cooley Law School Plus Inc., Elderlaw Clinic.


AUBURN — Some pets lived in a car, were malnourished or neglected. That was their life in DeKalb County. The DeKalb Humane Society highlighted those stories at its annual fundraiser, The Red Carpet Event, at the National Military History Center Thursday night. Guests supported the shelter by bidding to purchase a new well for $6,000 and bidding in live and silent auctions. The DeKalb Humane Society started in 1975, and 80 percent of its annual budget is provided by donors. Organizers for the Red Carpet Event sold a record 140 tickets. While guests enjoyed a catered meal, the animals who found loving homes walked the red carpet with their new owners. One animal, Wicket, a donkey, was taken from his DeKalb County home in 2011 after a neglect case. Matthew and Mary Worman of Albion adopted him nearly one year ago from Shadaroba Horse Rescue in Churubusco. “When we saw Wicket, he stood there and put his head on our daughter’s chest,” Mary Worman said. She knew then that they wanted to adopt him. “He is very gentle,” Mary Worman said. With the Wormans, Wicket found a new job as a therapy donkey. The couple visit nursing homes in Kendallville and Albion with the Noble County Saddle Club and thought Wicket would be a good addition to the group. “People who don’t communicate any more will reach out and smile and laugh,” Mary Worman said. ‘They will touch and love him.” Today, Wicket lives a life of leisure, roaming on 10 acres in Albion with other animals. The Wormans even purchased an old van and renovated the back with enough space for Wicket. “He’s the world’s fastest donkey,” Matthew Worman said. “He rides in the back of van, doing about 70 mph.” Another animal found a loving home because of a school assignment.

Addison Cox, 9, of Auburn wrote a persuasive paper to her mother, Jodi, about why she needed a dog — specifically a golden retriever. Jodi took her daughter to the shelter in March and they found Lucky, a rescued golden retriever with a broken leg. Lucky was brought to the shelter after he was found on the side of the road in the middle of winter. He had a broken leg and severe lacerations. He stayed in the office with the shelter manager, Anna Feller, because he was too big for the shelter’s kennels, Cox said. “He’s jumpy,” Jodi Cox said. “If he doesn’t know you, he will bark.” The shelter recently replaced its roof with money raised by donors, Feller said. A new play area also has been added. “Dogs are supervised in the play area,” Feller said. “We can do meet-and-greets.” The shelter has four full-time employees and five part-time employees. Each week, Feller estimates nearly 5-10 people volunteer at the shelter. “Weekends are busier, because people have more time,” Feller said.

SHUTDOWN: Many inconvenienced, lives upset FROM PAGE A1

Lots of people were inconvenienced and some lives were seriously disrupted, but most Americans weren’t personally touched by the shutdown. Less than one-third said someone in their home was affected, according to an NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll conducted Oct. 7-9. That doesn’t mean they shrugged off the effects beyond their front door. About two-thirds in that poll felt the shutdown was harming the economy. Consumer confidence dropped to its lowest level in more than a year, according to Gallup polling.

The economy

is scaring holiday shoppers. Last year politicians slowed sales by hanging the threat of a “fiscal cliff� over the holiday season, before working out a deal in the new year. This year, the government shutdown already has taken a toll. Economists and Standard & Poor’s estimate that it cost the economy $24 billion, or about $75 for every U.S. resident. Consumers may stay worried, especially if they hear bad news from Republican and Democratic lawmakers who are meeting over the next two months in hopes of reaching a spending deal to avert another fiscal standoff in January.

America’s Image

Forget turkey dinners and sleigh bells in the snow. Washington’s new tradition

Sure, it’s embarrassing. America’s image took a

hit. Other countries are snickering. Obama says the latest spectacle depressed the nation’s friends and heartened its enemies. But it shouldn’t have surprised them much. The world has witnessed three years of stalemates and standoffs between Democrats and Republicans since the GOP won control of the House in 2010. In the long view, the U.S. reputation, and especially its appeal for investors, doesn’t dent easily. After all, where else can the world park its money? Treasury bonds have scant competition as the safest place to stash reserves. The latest brouhaha should fade quickly because it stopped short of the feared outcome — a default on Treasury bonds that would tarnish their spotless image.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Still far from being a good team, the Washington Redskins are at least a successful team for a change. The Redskins gave up a special teams touchdown to Devin Hester — who didn’t see that coming? — and had their defense shredded by a backup quarterback playing his first regular season game in 21 months. They took advantage of an injury-depleted Chicago Bears defense and scored their most points since 2005, needing every morsel of offense from Robert Griffin III and Co., right down to Roy Helu’s game-deciding 3-yard touchdown with 45 seconds remaining. They beat the Bears 45-41 Sunday, raising their record to 2-4

Packers beat Browns GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers, despite an undermanned cast, vs. Brandon Weeden was no contest. Rodgers threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns, Eddie Lacy ran for another score, and the Packers grinded out a 31-13 win Sunday over the Cleveland Browns. Lacy finished with 82 yards, while tight end Jermichael Finley had a 10-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter before leaving with a neck injury. Green Bay (4-2) won its third straight and took over first place in the NFC North. Rodgers finished 25 for 36 in methodically carving up Cleveland (3-4) despite already being without two of his top targets in injured receivers James Jones and Randall Cobb. Then Finley left with about 10 minutes to go with a neck injury after a late hit by Brown safety Tashaun Gipson on a 10-yard gain. He was carted off the field, and the team later said Finley had movement and feeling in his extremities. The defense took care of the rest against a struggling Weeden, who finished 17 for 42 for 149 yards. The Browns’ Jordan Cameron caught a 2-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 11 with 6:09 left. Cleveland thought it caught a huge break after recovering an onside kick, only for the play to be erased by an offside penalty. The Packers got the ball back, and Rodgers found Jarrett Boykin for a 20-yard touchdown and a 31-13 lead. Boykin, making his first start at receiver with Jones and Cobb out, finished with eight catches for 103 yards.

want to dig yourself a bigger hole.” The Redskins’ two victories have come against backup QBs — Matt Flynn, who has since been released by the Oakland Raiders — and now Josh McCown, who entered Sunday’s game in the second quarter after Jay Cutler left with a groin injury. McCown was seeing his first action since the 2011 season, but the Bears improved with him in the game. Chicago had 46 yards of total offense in the first half and 313 in the second. He completed 14 of 20 passes for 204 yards, including a 7-yard touchdown pass to Martellus Bennett that gave his team a 41-38 lead with 3:57 to play. “I didn’t ask him what he liked, what he didn’t like,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said. “I just called the plays according to the plan we had put together. I thought he functioned very well in the offense.” Matt Forte rushed for three touchdowns, Alshon Jeffery had 105 yards receiving, and Hester tied Deion Sanders’ NFL record for return touchdowns with an 81-yard punt runback, but the Bears (4-3) couldn’t keep up because the defense was running out of playmakers. Having already lost middle linebacker D.J. Williams and two defensive tackles to season-ending injuries, Chicago had to make do without linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder) and Charles Tillman (knee) down the stretch after both were hurt in the second half. “They’ve been here a long time, made a lot of plays. Definitely wish we could have had them out there,” linebacker Jonathan Bostic said. Cutler was injured when he was brought down on the first career sack by 333-pound nose tackle Chris Baker. Cutler clutched at the top of his left leg and limped off the field. He will have an MRI on Monday. Trestman didn’t have an update on Briggs or Tillman.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jamaal Charles ran for 86 yards and a touchdown, Alex Smith also ran for a score and the scrappy Chiefs held off the banged-up Houston Texans 17-16 on Sunday to remain unbeaten. The Chiefs were forced to punt the ball to Houston with 1:46 left in the game. But after Case Keenum threw an incompletion on first down, the young quarterback was stripped by linebacker Tamba Hali at his 2. Derrick Johnson recovered the fumble for the Chiefs. Kansas City (7-0) extended the second-best start in franchise history. The 2003 team began the season 9-0. Keenum, making his first NFL start in place of the injured Matt Schaub, threw for 271 yards and a touchdown for the Texans (2-5). But he didn’t get much help from his run game after Arian Foster left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return. Jets 30, Patriots 27, OT In East Rutherford, N.J., Nick Folk kicked a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 left in overtime. Folk got a second chance after he missed a 56-yarder moments earlier. But Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate forward to try to block the kick, a new NFL rule. New York, given new life, ran the ball three times to set up Folk’s winner. Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the Jets (4-3) topped Tom Brady and the Patriots (5-2). New England tied it at 27 with 16 seconds left in regulation on Stephen Gostkowski’s 44-yard field goal. Steelers 19, Ravens 16 In Pittsburgh, Shaun Suisham drilled a 42-yard field goal with no time remaining. Suisham’s fourth field goal of the day pushed the Steelers (2-4) to their second straight win.

for a pair of big gains on Pittsburgh’s final drive, putting Suisham well within range to win it. Running back Le’Veon Bell ran for a season-high 93 yards on 19 carries. Joe Flacco passed for 215 yards and a touchdown, but couldn’t stop the defending Super Bowl champions (3-4) from losing for the third time in their last four games. 49ers 31, Titans 17 In Nashville, Tenn., Colin Kaepernick threw for 199 yards and ran for 68 and a touchdown. The 49ers (5-2) won their fourth straight before heading to London for a game with winless Jacksonville by jumping out to a 17-0 halftime lead. Frank Gore also ran for a pair of 1-yard TDs as San Francisco cruised. The Titans (3-4) lost their third straight even with Jake Locker starting after missing two games with a sprained right hip and knee. Locker threw for 326 yards with two TD passes in a fourth-quarter spurt that came up short. Cowboys 17, Eagles 3 In Philadelphia, Tony Romo threw for 317 yards and one touchdown and the Cowboys overcame a sluggish start to take sole possession of first place in the NFC East. Two teams that averaged a combined 58 points per game and allowed a combined 55 totaled 13 punts in a first half that ended with Dallas (4-3) leading 3-0. It was more two inept offenses than two dominant defenses. The Eagles (3-4) have lost a franchise-worst nine straight games at home. A Cowboys defensive line missing three of its projected starters pressured and harassed Nick Foles before sending him to the sideline with a head injury on the last play of the third quarter. Falcons 31, Buccaneers 23 Matt Ryan threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns, including two to Jacquizz Rodgers, and host Atlanta snapped its three-game losing streak. Harry Douglas had seven receptions for a careerbest 149 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown catch, for the Falcons (2-4). Bills 23, Dolphins 21 In Miami Gardens, Fla., Mario Williams forced a fumble when he sacked Ryan Tannehill with less than three minutes left, setting up the winning field goal. Dan Carpenter beat his former team by making a 31-yarder with 33 seconds to go. Panthers 30, Rams 15 Cam Newton completed 15 of 17 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown for host Carolina in a heated game. The Rams (3-4) lost their cool with several personal foul penalties — and then lost quarterback Sam Bradford to an apparent left knee injury late in the fourth quarter. Chargers 24, Jaguars 6 Philip Rivers threw for 285 yards and a touchdown, Ryan Mathews ran for 110 yards and a score for visiting San Diego.

SOUTH BEND (AP) — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly sounded hopeful quarterback Tommy Rees will be ready to play Saturday against struggling Air Force after sustaining a neck injury against USC. “He’s feeling better today. Still a little sore, but it will be a day-to-day situation,” Kelly said Sunday. Kelly said he expects Rees to practice Tuesday. The Fighting Irish (5-2) probably need Rees to heal quickly after seeing the offense become incapacitated when Rees left the game with a sprained neck with 9 minutes left in the third quarter when linebacker Lamar Dawson sacked him. With backup Andrew Hendrix in the game, the Irish managed just two first downs and the Irish went three-and-out on three other possessions and lost the ball on a fumble on another. The Irish offense wasn’t dominating against USC, but looked solid while Rees was in. Rees completed 14 of 21 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns in the 14-10 victory. “We liked the way he played,” Kelly said. Fans may have a renewed fondness for Rees after seeing how the Irish offense looked in his absence. Rees, who lost the starting job after his sophomore season after throwing 14 interceptions and fumbling the ball away five times in 2011, was roundly booed when he was called on to replace Everett Golson against Purdue in the second game last season. But his popularity grew as he rallied the Irish to victories last season against Purdue, Michigan and Stanford and started in a victory over BYU and played a significant role in helping the Irish get to the BCS championship game.

MSU wins with little fanfare EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Last year, Michigan State needed to win its final game of the regular season to become bowl eligible. No need for that kind of drama in 2013. The Spartans have already picked up win No. 6 — and they can expect to be firmly in the Big Ten title hunt when November rolls around. Michigan State eased past Purdue 14-0 on Saturday to remain one of three teams unbeaten in Big Ten play. The Spartans didn’t look sharp at all offensively — and coach Mark Dantonio even considered a quarterback change — but the team’s stellar defense was again up to the challenge. Michigan State (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten) is atop the Legends Division, although the Spartans remained outside the Top 25 on Sunday. It was not a particularly stylish win against Purdue (1-6, 0-3), which had been routed by Wisconsin and Nebraska in its first two conference games. The toughest part of Michigan State’s schedule is still to come. After playing at Illinois next weekend, the Spartans face Michigan, Nebraska and Northwestern in consecutive games. “Hopefully, our football team is maturing as we move forward,” Dantonio said. “We’re understanding that nothing is easy, and we mature and we grow. With every game we grow. That doesn’t mean we’re always going to have success, but we grow with that.” Denicos Allen returned a fumble 45 yards for a touchdown to open the scoring Saturday. On offense, the Spartans didn’t make it past the Purdue 32-yard line until the fourth quarter, when receiver Tony Lippett threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Gleichert on a trick play.

Blue Jackets best Canucks COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — R.J. Umberger scored his first goal of the season with 8:46 left and the Columbus Blue Jackets ended a four-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night. Curtis McElhinney, making his first appearance for the Blue Jackets in place of Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky, had 37 saves. Bobrovsky had the night off. Marian Gaborik and Ryan Johansen also scored for the Blue Jackets, who won for the first time at home this season after losing their first two. Henrik Sedin had the goal for the Canucks. Eddie Lack stopped 26 shots in place of Roberto Luongo, rested on the second night of back-to-back games for Vancouver. Umberger and Johansen each had an assist as well.

Phelps still mum on comeback BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Michael Phelps has been working out with his former coach but there is no word yet on a return to swimming for the Rio Olympics. Bob Bowman told The Associated Press on Sunday that Phelps has been taking part in workouts with the North Baltimore Aquatic Club. He’s not yet committed to the sort of grueling program that would be needed if he decided to return to competition. In fact, Phelps attended an NBA preseason game in China on Friday, visiting a country where he has extensive endorsement deals and remains extremely popular. “He is occasionally training with the group to get back in shape,” Bowman wrote in a text to the AP. Phelps and Bowman remain close friends and business partners. Initially adamant he would never compete again, Phelps softened his stance this past summer after reports began swirling of an imminent comeback. He told the AP during the world championships in Barcelona, “I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow.”







What Others Say •

Bullying of Ritz must stop A kid outside the popular clique impresses so many classmates — especially those belittled by the in-crowd — that she wins the election for class president. Irked by her encroachment into their hallway hierarchy, the preppies shun her. They snub her idea for school spirit rallies. They plan their own homecoming bonfire to compete with the traditional one she’ll preside over. She arranges a wear-our-school-colors day for Fridays; they wear them on Thursdays. You have to wonder how a school principal or counselor would handle such behavior. What word would they use to describe such disrespect? Someone within the leadership of the majority party ruling Indiana government should step up and be the metaphorical football team captain who breaks ranks with the clique and shows up at the class president’s bonfire. A Republican in a power position at the Statehouse should stand beside Glenda Ritz and affirm her authority to perform the duties of state superintendent of public instruction — the full duties of that job, just as an overwhelming number of Hoosiers elected her to do last November. Since taking office in January, Ritz has seen her office’s powers usurped and circumvented by an ideological circle ruling Indiana government still stung by her surprising electoral defeat of Republican former state superintendent Tony Bennett. Though Ritz was a lifelong Republican, the veteran teacher ran as a Democrat to challenge Bennett, a national star of the school-reform movement. Though outspent by a 10-to-1 margin, Ritz received more than 1.3 million votes. Ritz polled more votes for superintendent than Mike Pence, a former Republican congressman, did in his narrow victory in the governor’s race. The most powerful of Bennett’s allies have yet to accept that outcome. Their rejection of Ritz’s authority has reached a level of incivility beyond any in recent memory within the state education structure. Last spring, Pence and aligned GOP legislators essentially created a second state education department to go around Ritz. They shifted $5 million for staffing the State Board of Education from Ritz’s office to the governor’s, setting up a new career-training and education agency that Pence unveiled in August. A more overt attempt by Bennett backers in the Legislature to dilute Ritz’s role by overhauling the State Board and the Indiana Education Roundtable was appropriately stopped in the 2013 General Assembly session. The shunning continues, though. Last month, one of the 10 members of the State Board — all appointed by either former Gov. Mitch Daniels or Pence — established a strategy planning committee to lead the board and determine priorities for the next three years. The new strategy panel is backed by all of the State Board members except Ritz, who holds the chairperson’s seat as superintendent. By contrast, Ritz was backed by 1.3 million Hoosier voters. Ritz campaigned hard in opposition to limits on teachers’ collective bargaining, private-school vouchers and the A-F school rating system pushed by Bennett, Daniels, national reformists and like-minded state lawmakers. Yet, since her term began, she has gone to great lengths to collaborate with those of opposing viewpoints. A solid core still refuses to work with her. Unless someone intercedes, the childish, detrimental tactics will continue, especially in the upcoming 2014 legislative session. “I just think there will probably be things coming through the legislative process that will try to diminish my power as superintendent,” Ritz told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “They could include removing me as chair of the board; they could include overseeing more of my budget; they could include overseeing of data.” Such ideological bullying should not happen. Indiana voters deserve better. In their behalf, a high-level Republican — perhaps House Speaker Brian Bosma — needs to be a voice of reason and publicly support Ritz in the manner of the loyal opposition. Hoosier school children need that hero. Tribune-Star, Terre Haute

Letters to The Editor • East Noble students seeking help for Honor Flights for area veterans To the editor: On behalf of the East Noble High School Interact Club, I would like to invite our East Noble Community to join in our efforts to honor our veterans. Our current project is helping to fund the Spring 2014, Honor Flight Trip for our local veterans. The World War II Memorial in Washington DC was completed and dedicated in May 2004. It is a long overdue “Thank You” to the men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedom and a memorial to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. It was so long overdue that many WWII survivors have been unable to visit their memorial due to the barriers of advanced age, such as health matters, stamina, finances or other travel impairments. Honor Flight provides a way for many of these veterans to visit and reflect at their memorial. The immediate focus of the Honor Flight Network will remain on WWII veterans; however, the vision goes beyond WWII. In the future, Honor Flight plans to pay tribute to America’s other heroes that served during the Korean and Vietnam wars, followed by veterans of more current wars. They, too, have given much and it is time to honor these heroes for all of their enduring efforts. Our club goal is to raise $10,000 so that we may recognize our local heroes. If you would like to help in our cause, please feel free to contact me at pinena@eastnoble. net, or in care of East Noble High School at 347-2032 and leave a message for Matthew Rickey. Donations may also be made to “Honor Flight” East Noble Interact Club, 901 Garden Street, Kendallville IN 46755. We value our freedom and know that we

owe our freedom to the men and women who fought to preserve it. Each of us have family members who served or are currently serving in the U.S. military, and we appreciate the sacrifice and bravery of our troops and all of our veterans. We want to say “Thank You” to our World War II heroes before it’s too late!

WASHINGTON — Two Tax and entitlement reform things are often said in this town: were the real targets for House “A day is a year in politics.” And, Speaker John Boehner, who tried “It’s all about 2014.” in vain to convince his colleagues Combined, the two statements that they’d have greater leverage mean that much can happen during debt-ceiling between now and the negotiations.

the picture. Extreme voices may win primaries, but they do not win statewide elections, especially in a nation where a majority self-identify as centrist. This is a lesson Republicans have learned before but that stubborn factions, who would rather tether themselves to a flagpole than run the flag across a finish line, seem unable or unwilling to embrace. Think back to 2010 and Delaware’s Christine “I’m Not A Witch” O’Donnell and Nevada’s Sharron “Some Latinos Look More Asian To Me” Angle. And then, who can forget 2012’s stars: Richard Mourdock, who explained that rape pregnancies are gifts from God, and Todd Akin, who explored the nuances of “legitimate rape.” Cruz comes off as smarter than all of the above combined. There’s a reason so many outside the Beltway admire him. To those who feel jilted by the system and insulted by critics, he is a vision of palm trees, dates and fountains. He articulates what they think and feel and, as a bonus, he’s got that Latino thing. But Cruz is a mirage — an idea conjured in a fantasy that can’t be realized in reality. Like many successful politicians (and narcissists), he reflects back to others their own projected needs and desires. But then reality sets in — the debt-crisis deadline looms or the defunding ruse is exposed as theater — and only dust and dung remain among the shards of mirrored glass. To the most important point —

Suffice to say, if Cruz’s voice drowns out the so-called establishment voices, Republicans may as well start investing in camels. The desert awaits.

• the crux of Cruz: The only person who loves Ted Cruz more than Ted Cruz is Barack Obama. It is the White House and Democrats, not Republicans, who have advanced the idea that Cruz is the face of the GOP. Remember when the White House insisted that Rush Limbaugh was the leader of the GOP? These narratives are useful to Democrats because they loonify the GOP, driving voters away from their fiery rhetoric just as intense heat repels any sensible mammal. Cruz and Co. were more useful than Democrats could have hoped for as Obamacare limped out of the starting gate. One can bet that the greater the “glitches,” the bigger the megaphone for Cruz — the useful genius. The only hope for Republicans going forward is that Cruz resists the allure of his own voice.

She’s not sure when to start dating again DEAR ABBY: Last summer, after 24 years of marriage, I finally summoned the nerve to take my teenage daughter and leave my emotionally abusive husband. We are both thriving now. I have been in therapy, lost almost 45 pounds and have rediscovered my self-confidence all over again. A friend I have known for more than 10 years has expressed interest in dating me. I like him very much, but I’m not sure if it would be appropriate to date yet. What do you think? — TENTATIVE IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR TENTATIVE: Tempting as this is, proceed with caution. When a person has been emotionally starved for a long time, then begins to feel attractive, accepted and validated again, the result can be euphoria — a powerful “high.” Right now you need to be rational. What I think about




your dating this man is less important than what your therapist thinks right now. Please make this question a priority during your next sessions because the insight you’ll gain into yourself will help you not DEAR only in a ABBY relationship with this man — if decide to Jeanne Phillips you have one — but in future ones as well. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend of two years, “Jesse,” has suddenly changed. He’s pushing me away. We are both 17 and have a 9-month-old baby. Jesse spent the first six months of our son’s life in state custody. Since he has

been back, he has been really distant. He ignores me and isn’t affectionate anymore. When I get upset about it, he denies it and says I have no reason to be upset. I’m scared our relationship isn’t as strong as I thought. My son deserves a family, but it’s falling apart. What should I do? — TROUBLED IN TENNESSEE DEAR TROUBLED: You have no idea what might have happened to Jesse after he was sent away, so give him some space, but let him know that if he wants to talk about it, you are willing to listen and be supportive. Don’t push and don’t be clingy. You may have to be strong for all three of you. Complete your education, take parenting classes, and encourage Jesse to do it, too. Do this and your son WILL have a family, whether or not it’s the one you thought you’d have with Jesse.

Rehab for someone with aphasia involves speech and language exercises that help the patient regain the ability to understand, speak, read and write.

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: My mother recently had a stroke, and it’s severely impacted her ability to speak. What can be done to help her regain her speech? DEAR READER: Losing the ability to speak, or to understand speech, takes away an important part of ourselves -- the ability to communicate easily with others. I would rather be blind or deaf than unable to speak or to understand others. But there is hope that your mother can improve. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel supplying the brain bursts or becomes blocked. In both cases, the injury deprives the brain of a constant supply of oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood. Brain cells can die, possibly affecting a person’s ability to move, feel, think or even recognize people. In your mother’s case, it has


has weakened the muscles of the tongue, palate and lips — the parts of the mouth that utter words. With dysarthria, a person can understand speech and form proper words in his mind, but just cannot get the words out of his mouth. Persons with dysarthria often can write their thoughts down perfectly well even though they cannot speak them out loud. A person with dysarthria can do exercises to help increase strength and endurance in the muscles used for speech. The therapist also helps to improve enunciation. He or she might recommend speaking more slowly or taking deeper breaths before speaking. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Clashes Controversy comes with high-speed rail everyone reported Not happy with in Cairo $68 billion California deal

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian anti-riot police fired tear gas Sunday at hundreds of supporters of the country’s ousted Islamist president, besieging them inside a prestigious Muslim institution after stone-hurling protesters cut off a main road. Sunday’s clashes marked the second day of unrest at Al-Azhar University, Sunni Islam’s most prominent center of learning. Many supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood are students at Al-Azhar, a stronghold of the group. The campus is also near where Islamists had a sprawling protest camp that security forces raided in August, leaving hundreds dead and sparking days of unrest. The students’ protest started with a march inside campus, where protesters hurled stones at the administrator’s offices, smashing windows and breaking doors, said Ibrahim el-Houdhoud, deputy head of the university. He told satellite news channel Al-Jazeera Mubashir Misr that he warned protesters against leaving campus and clashing with security forces. The protesters however ignored the advice, marching out of the main gates to hold “prayers for the dead” — honoring students killed in earlier clashes between security forces and protesters in July. The protests come amid heated debate over a new law that would place tougher restrictions on demonstrators, which includes imposing heavy fines and possible jail time on violators.

FRESNO, California (AP) — Trucks loaded with tomatoes, milk and almonds clog the two main highways that bisect California’s farm heartland, carrying goods to millions along the Pacific Coast and beyond. This dusty stretch of land is the starting point for one of the most expensive U.S. public infrastructure projects: a $68 billion high-speed rail system that would span the state, linking the people of America’s salad bowl to more jobs, opportunity and buyers. Five years ago, California voters overwhelmingly approved the idea of bringing a bullet train to the most populous U.S. state. It would be America’s first high-speed rail system, sold to the public as a way to improve access to good-paying jobs, cut pollution from smog-filled roadways and reduce time wasted sitting in traffic while providing an alternative to high fuel prices. Now, engineering work has finally begun on the first 30-mile segment of track here in Fresno, a city of a half-million people with soaring unemployment and a withering downtown core littered with abandoned factories and shuttered stores. Rail is meant to help Fresno, with construction jobs now and improved access to economic opportunity once the project is finished. But the region that could benefit most from the project is also where opposition to it has grown most fierce. “I just wish it would go away, this high-speed

rail. I just wish it would go away,” says Gary Lanfranco, whose restaurant in downtown Fresno is slated to be demolished to make way for rerouted traffic. Such sentiments can be heard throughout the Central Valley, where roads are dotted with signs such as: “HERE COMES HIGH SPEED RAIL There goes the farm.” Growers complain of misplaced priorities, and residents wonder if their tax money is being squandered. Aaron Fukuda, a civil engineer whose house in the dairy town of Hanford lies directly in one of the possible train routes, says: “People are worn out, tired, frustrated.” Voters in 2008 approved $10 billion in bonds to start construction on an 800-mile rail line to ferry passengers between San Francisco and Los Angeles in 2 hours and 40 minutes, compared with 6 hours by car now during

good traffic. Since then, the housing market collapsed, multibillion-dollar budget deficits followed, and the price tag has fluctuated wildly — from $45 billion in 2008 to more than $100 billion in 2011 and, now, $68 billion. Political and financial compromises led officials to scale back plans that now mean trains will be forced to slow down and share tracks in major cities, leading critics to question whether it will truly be the 220-mph “high-speed rail” voters were promised. The high-speed rail business plan says trains will run between the greater Los Angeles area and the San Francisco Bay Area by 2029. But construction has been postponed repeatedly, and a court victory this summer by opponents threatens further delays; a Sacramento County Superior Court judge said the state rail authority’s plan goes against the promise

made to voters to identify all the funding for the first segment before starting construction. Even the former chairman of the California High-Speed Rail Authority, Quentin Kopp, has turned against the current project, saying in court papers that it “is no longer a genuine high speed rail system.” In the Central Valley, there is intense distrust of the authority, which has started buying up property, land and businesses, some of which have been in families for generations. At the dimly lit Cosmopolitan Cafe, office workers line up alongside farmers and paramedics to order sandwiches as waitresses expeditiously call out order numbers. Four decades’ worth of memorabilia and yellowing newspaper restaurant reviews line the faux-wood walls in the space that Lanfranco has owned for most of his life.

Lanfranco says the sum he was offered to buy the property does not come close to replacing the space he owns, debt-free. The adjacent parking lot — a rare commodity — is packed with pickup trucks and cars each day at lunchtime. Lanfranco declined to say how much he was offered, and the offers are not public record. “It’s not like it’s just a restaurant that I’ve owned for a couple of years and now I can just go replace it. It’s something that I’ve put the last 45 years of my life into,” the 66-year-old says. His is just one of hundreds of properties the state needs to buy for the rail project or seize through eminent domain if they cannot reach a deal. Many owners are resentful after years of what they say have been confusing messages and misleading information. Rail officials acknowledge that the agency hasn’t always communicated with those most affected by the project, and part of their work in the Central Valley is strictly public relations. “Frankly, it set us back, because we, in effect, created questions and even opposition by just failing to give people answers,” says Jeff Morales, the authority’s chief executive officer since 2012. For supporters, high-speed rail is the solution to California’s future transportation needs, when the state’s already jammed, rutted highways and busy airports won’t be enough for a population expected to hit 46 million by 2035. It will create hundreds of good-paying jobs for several years as officials tear down buildings, draw engineering plans, survey wildlife and, eventually, lay track. It will also help move the Central Valley beyond the dominant low-wage agriculture sector, Morales says.
