Advisory calls for heavy snow BY MIKE MARTURELLO mmarturello@kpcmedia.com

Northeast Indiana’s first wintry blast of 2013 could be on its way, with the possibility of up to a half-foot of snow, the National Weather Service Northern Indiana is predicting. On the heels of dangerously cold wind chills Thursday, snow is possible tonight and Saturday, with the possibility of significant accumulations. A weather system moving through the Ohio Valley from

California is expected to spawn conditions that could bring heavy snow, NWS said. “Current computer model solutions indicate a potent upper air disturbance over southern California will eject out of the southern Rockies tonight and then lift northeast through the Ohio Valley on Saturday,” the advisory said. The weather service has issued a winter weather advisory in effect from 7 tonight to 7 p.m. Saturday. Snow is expected to overspread

the area from west to east this evening. Total accumulations are expected to be 4-6 inches by the time the snow tapers off during the day Saturday. Roads will become snow covered, slick and hazardous Friday night, continuing into Saturday, making travel across the area difficult. A winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Officials urged motorists to be prepared for snow-covered roads

Gold coin donated to Salvation Army KOKOMO (AP) — Someone has again anonymously dropped a gold Krugerrand coin into a Salvation Army red kettle in a central Indiana city. Salvation Army Capt. Dale Brandenburg says the South African coin was found in one of its Kokomo kettles last week and it was sold it for $1,220. The Kokomo Tribune reports this marks the fifth straight year that a Krugerrand donation has been made in the city. Brandenburg says the coin sold for about $400 less than last year when the price of gold was higher. He says the donation of the coin is a big boost since the group is about $50,000 short of its $82,500 fundraising goal.

and limited visibilities and use caution while driving. Emergency officials also urged people to use caution when shoveling snow, which can be a very strenuous activity. “Current projections would indicate a potential for 4-6 inches of snow along and south of a Rochester to Toledo (Ohio) line. However small fluctuations in the track and intensity of this system could significantly alter potential snow accumulations,” the advisory said.

Guard unit returns from Afghanistan TRAFALGAR (AP) — Members of an Indiana National Guard unit marched behind Santa Claus as they arrived at a ceremony welcoming them home after a 10-month deployment to Afghanistan. About 110 soldiers from the 1438th Transportation Company based at Camp Atterbury were greeted with cheers Wednesday from hundreds of people who filled the gymnasium at Indian Creek High School in Trafalgar. Maj. Lisa Kopczynski says the soldiers provided security escorts for vehicles transporting food and other supplies to bases while in Afghanistan.

Regional Roundup • Former Komets executive, owner dies FORT WAYNE — Former Fort Wayne Komets executive, owner, general manager and coach Ken Ullyot passed away Thursday at age 92, our news partner, NewsChannel 15, reports. Ullyot came to Fort Wayne to coach the Komets in 1958. He also served the team as general manager and owner at different times until he retired in 1986. Ullyot led the Komets to the 1963 IHL Turner Cup as a coach, the 1965 championship as general manager and the 1973 Turner Cup Title as an owner. In addition to the three IHL championships, the Komets made seven trips to the finals under Ullyot’s direction. In 1997 The Hockey News named Ullyot the IHL’s All-Time Greatest General Manager. In addition, the IHL honored its Western Conference Champion by presenting them with the Ken Ullyot Trophy.

Greater Fort Wayne opposes marriage ban FORT WAYNE — Greater Fort Wayne Inc. on Thursday unveiled its legislative priorities for the coming year and announced its board of directors opposes a proposed state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. The proposed constitutional amendment, House Joint Resolution 6, is expected to go before the General Assembly during its 2014 session. The amendment would prohibit same-sex marriages and civil unions. “We need to be competitive on a national level and be recognized as a community that thrives on diversity, innovation and inclusion,” Mark Becker, CEO of Greater Fort Wayne, said in a statement. “Such legislation hinders our ability to grow and prosper, and could delay our vision of becoming a top metro center in the United States.”

Vera Bradley income, earnings decline FORT WAYNE — Handbag manufacturer Vera Bradley Inc. on Wednesday reported net income of $15.2 million for its fiscal third quarter, a decline of more than 14 percent from $17.7 million in the year-ago period. Earnings per share of 37 cents were down almost 16 percent from 44 cents per share in the prior-year quarter. Net revenue was $130.1 million, a decrease of 6 percent from last year’s $138.3 million. While third-quarter results were in line with the company’s expectations, new CEO Robert Walstrom said in an earnings release the company is lowering its outlook for the fourth quarter.

Teen sentenced to 65 years for murder GOSHEN — An Elkhart teen who pleaded guilty to murder for his part in a fatal drive-by shooting was sentenced to 65 years in prison, according to news reports. The Elkhart Truth reports Jesus Macedo-Perez, 17, pleaded guilty Nov. 14, and agreed to the maximum sentence for a murder charge. By accepting Macedo-Perez’s plea, the state removed a criminal gang enhancement. The enhancement could have doubled Macedo-Perez’s sentence if he was found guilty of murder and if the state proved he was participating in criminal gang activity.

Charging stations planned MISHAWAKA (AP) — Tesla Motors has opened two charging stations in northern Indiana as it works to establish a nationwide network for its electric cars. The new charging stations for the Tesla Model S electric car opened Wednesday in Mishawaka and Angola, the South Bend Tribune reported. Tesla officials say the stations can in 20 minutes give one of the cars enough battery power to travel up to 150 miles. William Stonehill of Granger said he doesn’t expect to use the station at Mishawaka’s University Park Mall since a full

charge on his Tesla at his nearby home allows it to travel about 200 miles. The station’s completion is an important signal, he said. “It means my car is becoming a car I can take more out of town,” he said. It’s free to charge a Tesla at the six-stall station in Mishawaka, but it doesn’t work on other electric car models. The station in the city just east of South Bend was the 40th one that Tesla has opened in the United States. “It’s about enabling routes that our owners are traveling at this point,” Tesla spokeswoman Alexis Georgeson said.

ANGOLA — More than 100 RISE Inc. clients and staff members were treated to a turkey lunch, Christmas carols, dancing and chatting with Santa Claus. It was all part of RISE’s annual Christmas luncheon presented Thursday by Angola Rotary and Angola Elks Lodge. More than 12 years ago, Don Rodgers had the idea to hold the luncheon for RISE, which serves developmentally disabled clients in Steuben and DeKalb counties. “I don’t do it. The Elks and Rotary do it,” said Denise Kreais, RISE executive director. “It’s their way of giving back. It’s amazing, the community support, and clients look forward to it every year.” Kreais said the lunch is a nice treat for RISE staff members as well, because the Rotarians and Elks do all the work. Last year, RISE was able to take the leftovers home. Management served the food to clients as a Christmas Eve meal for

Conservation officers warn against dangers of thin ice INDIANAPOLIS — As ice begins to form on many waterways, Indiana Conservation Officers with the Department of Natural Resources are calling on citizens to put safety first. Conservation officers said every winter, thousands of Hoosiers enjoy fishing, skating, hiking or just sliding around on frozen ponds and lakes. However, every year,

those without families. Kreais said it’s all done simply because of the staff’s love of its clients. Chuck Sheets, a Rotarian and Elk, said some of the clients have been attending each year the luncheon has been held in their honor. He said the Rotary pays for and serves the food, and the Elks do the cooking and provide the lodge. In between dishing up lunches, the Rotarians and Elks broke into singing Christmas carols. Dr. Matt Stevens, Rotary president, said it’s all about spreading the Christmas spirit. “It’s a combined effort,” he said. “It’s to see the looks on their faces.” Clients laughed and were especially excited when Santa handed out candy canes. Tom Wilcoxson gave the meal a thumbs up. “We get to get out of work, and the best part is eating,” he said. His friend, Doug Cooper, laughed and agreed. Karen Birchielld broke into a big smile when she saw Santa approaching. “I like Santa. I want a new

people drown after falling through ice. The officers issued these tips to remember before going onto a frozen lake or pond: • No ice is safe ice. • At least 4 inches of ice is recommended for safe ice fishing; and 5 inches is needed for snowmobiling. • If you don’t know, don’t go. • Wear lifejackets or flotation coats. • Carry ice hooks and rope gear. • Parents are strongly encouraged to closely supervise all children’s activities on frozen waterways. • When participating in any recreational activity on ice, partnering up is a must. This includes ice fishing. Depending on conditions, ice can change from several

inches thick to nearly open water within just a few feet. Flowing water, such as rivers and streams, should be avoided when covered by a layer of ice. Water surrounded by sand often freezes with inconsistencies. Wind, waterfowl and beavers also can keep areas of ice thin. A fall into icy water can result in a quick onset of hypothermia for the victim, which can lead to catastrophic consequences if not treated immediately. “If you see a person fall through the ice, call 911 immediately with clear and concise instructions on the location of the victim,” a DNR news relase said. “Attempts to rescue a victim should begin only after calling 911. Going into the water after the victim should be the last option in a rescue effort.”

commission, urged members to approve the expressway, saying it will make the Interstate 80-94 Borman Expressway and other roads safer. “Do you feel good about your families being out there (on the Borman)?” Alderman asked. “Do you feel good about your friends being out there?” Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. failed in his attempt to delay the vote, urging the commission to wait because the NIRPC committee in charge of implementing its 2040 plan had been unable to come to a decision for or against the Illiana Expressway. “We are taking people’s homes with this,” McDermott said. “We are changing the landscape of south Lake County.”

The plan previously had been approved by a similar Illinois board. The next step is to receive federal approval. James A. Earl, INDOT project manager, told the Post-Tribune that Indiana and Illinois will each hold public hearings in mid-January to allow comments on the environmental impact of the project. No date or place has been set for those hearings, he said. Those findings will be submitted to the Federal Highway Administration for approval, which could come as early as March, INDOT spokesman Jim Pinkerton said. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Illinois Gov. Patrick Quinn both support the project, saying it would promote economic development. Critics maintain the $1.3 billion road would have minimal impact

Dan Coats, R-Ind., praised the vote by the planning commission. “This is an important step toward beginning construction of the Illiana Expressway, and I commend NIRPC for moving the development process forward,” Coats said. “This critically important project will stimulate new economic activity and job opportunities in northwest Indiana. Given the fiscal constraints our nation is facing in Washington, the Illiana Expressway is a forwardlooking solution that leverages innovative private sector funding sources.” If the project is approved, work could begin as early as 2015.

Deaths & Funerals • Robert Friesner PLYMOUTH — Robert L. Friesner, 75, passed away at 2:04 p.m. on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka. Robert was born on July 16, 1938, in Middlepoint, Ohio, to Dwight and Datha (Fox) Friesner. He graduated from Van Del High School Mr. Friesner in 1956. While in high school he played both basketball and baseball. He then met and married his wife of 55 years, Barbara Joyce Rawlings. He attended Findlay College and after he received his degree, he began his teaching career which lasted 39 years. He and Barbara Joyce spent their teaching years at West Noble in Ligonier, then moved to Lawrence Lake in Plymouth after they retired. His years in the classroom teaching U.S. history gave him much joy, and he did a great job keeping students’ attention. However, those less attentive students were brought back to his history world with a flying eraser. He spent his afterschool hours coaching cross-country with the help of his wife for many years. He worked his runners hard and had high expectations. However, many fine young men came through his program, including a state cross-country champion and three state-qualifying teams. He also used his love of basketball to coach a team to a sectional championship. Robert also coached wrestling, track and taught driver’s education. He was also a member of the Lions Club and West Noble Classroom Teachers’ Association and served on the Ligonier Library Board. He is survived by his wife, Barbara Joyce, and three daughters: Sherry Hughes, Deb (Larry) Miller and Kate (Josh) Harris; four grandchildren: Ryan, Tyler, Kalee and Maddie; brothers, Gerald (Mary) Friesner, Harold (Carrol) Friesner and Tom (Sharon) Friesner; and sisters-in-laws, Ellen Friesner and Sandy Friesner; along with several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and a twin brother, Bill Friesner. The viewing will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday, December 16, 2013, at Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan St., Plymouth. Funeral services will follow visitation at 7 p.m. in the funeral home. Burial will be in New

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea on Friday announced the execution of Kim Jong Un’s uncle, calling the leader’s former mentor a traitor and “worse than a dog.” The announcement came only days after Pyongyang announced through state media that Jang Song Thaek — long considered the country’s No. 2 power — had been Jang removed from all his posts because of allegations of corruption, drug use, gambling, womanizing and leading a “dissolute and depraved life.” Jang was seen as helping Kim Jong Un consolidate power after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, two years ago. Jang was the latest and most significant in a series of personnel reshuffles that Kim has conducted in an apparent effort to bolster his power. Some analysts see the purge as a sign of Kim Jong Un’s growing confidence, but there has also been fear in Seoul that the removal of such an important part of the North’s government — seen by outsiders as the leading supporter of Chinese-style economic reforms — could create dangerous instability or lead to a miscalculation or attack on the South. Tensions are still high on the Korean Peninsula following a torrent of threats in March and April by Kim Jong Un’s government against Washington, Seoul and Tokyo, including vows of missile and nuclear strikes and warnings that Pyongyang would restart nuclear bomb fuel production. Jang was married to Kim Jong Un’s aunt, Kim Kyong Hui, the younger sister of Kim Jong Il. He was earlier described by state media as “abusing his power,” being “engrossed in irregularities and corruption,” and taking drugs and squandering money at casinos while undergoing medical treatment in a foreign country.

Yemeni officials claim drone hit wedding party SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Missiles fired by a U.S. drone slammed into a convoy of vehicles traveling to a wedding party in central Yemen on Thursday, killing at least 13 people, Yemeni security officials said. The officials said the attack took place in the city of Radda, the capital of Bayda province, and left charred bodies and burnt out cars on the road. The city, a stronghold of al-Qaida militants, witnessed deadly clashes early last year between armed tribesmen backed by the military and al-Qaida gunmen in an attempt to drive them out of the city. There were no immediate details on who was killed

in the strike, and there were conflicting reports about whether there were militants traveling with the wedding convoy. A military official said initial information indicated the drone mistook the wedding party for an al-Qaida convoy. He said tribesmen known to the villagers were among the dead. One of the three security officials, however, said al-Qaida militants were suspected to have been traveling with the wedding convoy. The CIA declined to comment on the reported drone strike. While the U.S. acknowledges its drone program in Yemen, it

does not usually talk about individual strikes. If further investigations determine that the victims were all civilians, the attack could fuel an outburst of anger against the United States and the government in Sanaa among a Yemeni public already opposed to the U.S. drone strikes. Civilian deaths have bred resentments on a local level, sometimes undermining U.S. efforts to turn the public against the militants. The backlash in Yemen is still not as large as in Pakistan, where there is heavy pressure on the government to force limits on strikes — but public calls for a halt to strikes are starting to emerge.

In October, two U.N. human rights investigators called for more transparency from the United States and other countries about their drone programs, saying their secrecy is the biggest obstacle to determining the civilian toll of such strikes. The missile attacks in Yemen are part of a joint U.S.-Yemeni campaign against al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which Washington has called the most dangerous branch of the global terrorist network. Thursday’s drone strike is the second since a massive car bombing and coordinated assault on Yemen’s military headquarters killed 56 people, including foreigners.

Gift Certificates & Gift Cards are available at these following locations.

Al-Qaida claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was retaliation for U.S. drone strikes that have killed dozens of the group’s leaders. Security forces in the Yemeni capital boosted their presence Thursday, setting up checkpoints across the city and sealing off the road to the president’s residence, in response to what the Interior Ministry called threats of “terrorist plots” targeting vital institutions and government buildings. Meanwhile, in the Yemen’s restive northern, ultraconservative Sunni Muslim militants and rebels belonging to a branch of Shiite Islam battled each

other with artillery and machine guns in clashes that killed more than 40 people, security officials said. The violence between Islamic Salafi fighters and Hawthi rebels has raged for weeks in Yemen’s northern province of Saada, but the latest sectarian clashes marked an expansion of the fighting to the neighboring province of Hagga. The government brokered a cease-fire last month to try to end the violence, but both sides have repeatedly broken the truce. Officials said clashes began when ultraconservative Salafis took over a Hawthi stronghold in a mountainous area near the border with Saudi Arabia.

‘12 Years’ and ‘Hustle’ top a varied Globes field

Heaping seven nominations on both the con-artist melodrama “American Hustle” and the grimly historical “12 Years a Slave,” the Golden Globes nominations set up a showdown of contrasts: comedy and drama, light and dark, white and black. The two films were validated as Academy Awards front-runners in the Globes nominations announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif., by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, refining what had been a scattered awards season in a year many consider encouragingly plentiful of worthy movies. The differences between the two top-nominees are vast. While David O. Russell’s fictionalized caper “American Hustle” takes a playful, exaggerated approach to an already outlandish story (the FBI’s scandal-uncovering Abscam investigation in the disco 1970s), Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave,” based on Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir, is unflinching in its portrait of Southern slavery — a subject Hollywood has seldom depicted rigorously or truthfully. “I feel this film is pivotal and just good for the world,” said Lupita Nyong’o, who was nominated for best supporting actress. The other nominations for “12 Years a Slave” include best picture, drama; best actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor; best director for McQueen; and best supporting actor for Michael Fassbender. “American Hustle,” though equally dramatic as it is comedic, is for Russell a closely felt story of self-renewal. Reteaming much of the casts from his last two acclaimed films (“Silver Linings Playbook” and “The Fighter”), the movie’s warm reception completes a personal redemption for the director. “There is not a molecule in my body that isn’t humbly grateful,” said Russell. “From the second we made ‘The Fighter,’ it’s been a journey that began from a low point for me to a new period that I feel my life was leading up to.” “American Hustle” received nominations for best picture, comedy; Russell for best director; Christian Bale for best actor, comedy; Amy Adams for best actress, comedy; and Jennifer Lawrence, last year’s Oscar darling, for best supporting actress. The distinction drawn by the Globes between drama and comedy-musical, won’t be there for Oscar voters, who’ll have to weigh the differences of “12 Years a Slave” and “American Hustle” — that classic

This film image released by Paramount Pictures shows Jonah Hill, left, and Leonardo DiCaprio in a scene from “The Wolf of Wall Street.” The film was nominated for a Golden Globe for best motion picture, musical or comedy on Thursday. The 71st annual Golden Globes will air on Sunday, Jan. 12.

dichotomy of hard-to-watch and easy-on-the-eyes — against each other. The field can’t be said to have narrowed too much, though. The innovative, 3-D space odyssey “Gravity,” which received four nominations Thursday including best dramatic film and best actress for Sandra Bullock, will surely be more of a heavyweight at the Academy Awards, which honor technical achievement categories that the Globes don’t. The ’60s Greenwich Village folk tale “Inside Llewyn Davis” (three nods) and the soulful, futuristic romance “Her” (three nominations) have each won best film from other groups. Support is also strong for Alexander Payne’s father-son road trip “Nebraska” (five nominations), the Somali pirate thriller “Captain Phillips” (four nods), and Martin Scorsese’s wild high-finance party “The Wolf of Wall Street” (two noms). All five were nominated for best picture. A movie that could have been a theatrical release, Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace drama “Behind the Candelabra,” topped the Globes’ television nominations. The HBO film helped the cable channel yield a leading nine nominations among TV networks. The digital platform Netflix, though, emerged as a new challenger with six total nods. The subscription service’s first major foray into original programming, the political thriller “House of Cards,” tied “Candelabra” with four nominations. “House of Cards,” produced by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey, is also a product of filmmakers who turned to the small screen. But in a year where TV’s rise was much trumpeted, the movies put forth a dynamic argument for the big screen. Ron Howard, whose Formula One thriller “Rush” was a surprise nominee as best dramatic film and best supporting actor for Daniel Bruhl, said it’s a “remarkable movie season.” “It’s a great time for the medium in the face of a lot economic doubt and a lot of competition from other mediums,” said Howard. This year’s comedy competition — usually a mixed bag compared to the dramatic categories — could be the strongest field ever for the Globes (even

if many don’t neatly slide under the label of “comedy” or “musical”). Aside from “American Hustle,” the group includes “The Wolf of Wall Street,” ”Nebraska,” ”Her” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Two 77-year-old veterans landed best actor nominations: Robert Redford in the drama “All Is Lost,” and Bruce Dern in the comedy “Nebraska.” Redford, who hasn’t ever won an acting Oscar, gives a nearly unspoken performance as a man shipwrecked in the Indian Ocean in “All Is Lost.” “The only other time that the Golden Globes came into my life was in 1964,” said Redford. “I think the organization was only about a year old, but I was voted Star of Tomorrow in 1964. So it’s been awhile.” Redford was passed over Wednesday by the Screen Actors Guild, a snub he said he wasn’t even aware of. In “Nebraska,” Dern plays a taciturn Montana man who believes he’s won a mailing sweepstakes. He’s been unusually forthright about his honest enjoyment in being back in the spotlight with “Nebraska,” which was also nominated for Payne’s screenplay and June Squibb’s supporting performance. “He’s eating it up. He’s having a ball,” Payne said of Dern. “It’s a new start for him at this point in his career and he’s chomping at the bit to act. He’s got a lot to give, that guy.” Though the Globes are known for their idiosyncratic choices (last year “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” received three curious nominations), their 2013 picks contained few oddities. Most notably shutout was “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” the civil rights history told through a long-serving White House butler played by Forest Whitaker. Oprah Winfrey has been considered a favorite among supporting actresses. Also denied were hopefuls “Fruitvale Station” and “Prisoners.” Among the nominees were some familiar faces (Judi Dench, “Philomena”; Tom Hanks “Captain Phillips”; Kate Winslet, “Labor Day,” Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, “August: Osage County,” Joaquin Phoenix, “Her”; Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “Enough Said”) and some more fresh faces (Barkhad Abdi, “Captain Phillips”; Greta Gerwig, “Frances Ha” and Oscar Isaac, “Inside Llewyn Davis”).

Barker celebrates 90th on ‘Price’ NEW YORK (AP) — Bob Barker’s 90th birthday present is urging one more contestant to “come on down” from the audience on “The Price Is Right.” The veteran game-show host, at the helm of “The Price Is Right” from 1972 to 2007, was invited back by current host Drew Carey on Thursday to celebrate the milestone birthday. He moved a little more slowly, and his microphone was a little thicker, but Barker fell right back into the groove. The audience gave him a standing ovation, and he joined with Carey in encouraging viewers to spay or neuter

Work starts on Newtown-inspired ‘Child’s Requiem’ BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — Composer Steven Sametz has written dozens of pieces in his long and prolific career, perhaps none so personal as the one he’s about to begin: a requiem for the victims of the schoolhouse massacre in Newtown, Conn. The Lehigh University music professor grew

up about 20 miles from Newtown, where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. “I know well what it was like to grow up in a small Connecticut town, and in what should have been, for all, a really beautiful time of life,” Sametz said in an

interview at Lehigh, a private school north of Philadelphia. “And it struck me that these children were cut from that, tragically.” Sametz recently won a $25,000 music prize from the University of Connecticut to compose a piece for chorus and orchestra, based on the idea that music can aid the healing process — and he’s

seeking ideas and input from children around the U.S. His working title: “A Child’s Requiem.” “This is just my way of putting something into the world that might be positive or helpful in the face of something that was horrifying,” he said. Musicians often respond to tragedy by working out

their emotions in song and helping provide catharsis to others. Music played a huge part in the one-year observance of the Sept. 11 attacks, for example, with choral groups around the world performing Mozart’s “Requiem” on the anniversary of the moment when the first plane hit in New York.

Kerry starts talks on ninth trip to Middle East RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — Continuing a furious pace of shuttle diplomacy aimed at securing an elusive Israeli-Palestinian peace deal by spring, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry opened meetings Thursday in the Middle East on his ninth trip of the year to the region. Concerned that a final status agreement may not be possible by the May target that the two sides accepted when they resumed talks in August, senior U.S. officials said Kerry was hoping for a framework accord that would contain the principles of a comprehensive pact, but not specific details. If such an outline could be achieved, the negotiations

could be extended beyond the nine-month timeline originally set by Kerry, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the officials said. The officials, who spoke to reporters aboard Kerry’s plane on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the negotiations publicly, stressed that an agreement on all issues — including security, borders of a future Palestinian state, the status of Jerusalem and the fate of Palestinian refugees — by May remains the goal. But, should that prove unworkable, they said a framework

agreement would buy time for additional negotiations. Netanyahu and Abbas agreed after numerous rounds of meetings with Kerry to negotiate for a minimum of nine months. A framework accord, the officials said, would be a “logical step” on the path to a final status agreement. As rare, heavy snow fell on Israel and the Palestinian territories, Kerry met Thursday evening with Abbas in Ramallah. He is to see Netanyahu on Friday before heading to Jordan and then flying to Vietnam and the Philippines. In Ramallah and Jerusalem, he will also follow up on elements of a West Bank security

plan, ideas for which he unveiled on his most recent visit to the region just last week, and other points of potential progress. But his latest visit comes amid Palestinian unhappiness with the security plan and few, if any, tangible signs of progress. Kerry, along with special U.S. Mideast peace envoy Martin Indyk, met separately and then together for about three hours Monday with chief Israeli negotiator Tzipi Livni and her Palestinian counterpart, Saeb Erekat, Psaki said. Livni and Erekat were in Washington for a Mideast conference in which President Barack Obama, Netanyahu and Kerry partic-

ipated. Kerry also spoke Wednesday by phone with Netanyahu. On Monday, though, top Abbas aide Yasser Abed Rabbo said if Kerry finalized a framework accord, he would be breaking a promise to try to negotiate a final agreement in the current round of talks. The Palestinians are concerned that a framework deal will accommodate very specific Israeli security demands while offering only vague promises to the Palestinians, Abed Rabbo said. Security arrangements between Israel and a future Palestine would be central to such a framework. Kerry has argued that progress in

negotiations is only possible if Israeli security concerns are addressed first. The security proposals presented last week to Abbas and Netanyahu include arrangements for the border between Jordan and a state of Palestine. U.S. officials have refused to discuss details, but Palestinian officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the details of the negotiations, say they would give Israel final say at that border for at least 10 years and would also have a military presence in the strip of land next to it, the West Bank’s Jordan Valley.

Holiday shopping sprees not for everyone this year NEW YORK (AP) — Many Americans are watching the annual holiday spending ritual from the sidelines this year. Money is still tight for some. Others are fed up with commercialism of the holidays. Still others are waiting for bigger bargains. And people like Lark-Marie Anton Menchini are more thoughtful about their purchases. The New York public relations executive says in the past she’d buy her children up to eight Christmas gifts each, but this year they’re getting three apiece. The leftover money is going toward their college savings. “We told them Santa is … being very conscious of how many gifts he puts on his sleigh,” Menchini, 36, says. Despite an improving economy, most workers are not seeing meaningful wage increases. And those who can splurge say the brash commercialism around the

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2013

holidays — many more stores are opening for business on Thanksgiving — is a turnoff. But perhaps the biggest factor is that shoppers are less motivated than ever by holiday sales. Since the Great Recession, retailers have been dangling more discounts throughout the year, so Americans have learned to hold out for even deeper holiday savings on clothes, electronics and more. To stay competitive and boost sales, retailers are slashing prices further during their busiest season of the year, which is cutting into their own profit margins. There aren’t reliable figures on how many people plan to shop during the holidays. But early data points to a shift in holiday spending. The National Retail Federation estimates that sales during the start to the official start to season — the four-day weekend that began on Thanksgiving Day

— dropped 2.9 percent from last year to $57.4 billion. That would mark the first decline in the seven years the trade group has tracked spending. And during the week afterward — which ended on Sunday — sales fell another 2.9 percent compared with a year ago, according to data tracker ShopperTrak, which did not give dollar amounts. Meanwhile, the number of shoppers in stores plunged nearly 22 percent. The numbers are sobering for retailers, which depend on making up to 40 percent of their revenue in the last two months of the year. They suggest shifts in the attitudes of U.S. shoppers that could force stores to reshape their strategies. Stores slashed prices during the recession to get financially-strapped shoppers in stores and to better compete with the cheaper prices of online retailers like Amazon.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Residents in some parts of the U.S. are signing up for health care coverage at a significantly greater rate than others through the new online insurance marketplaces now operating in every state. The discrepancy may trace back to the political leanings of their elected leaders. Newly released federal figures show more people are picking private insurance plans or being routed to Medicaid programs in states with Democratic leaders who have fully embraced the federal health care law than in states where Republican elected officials have derisively rejected what they call “Obamacare.” On one side of the political divide are a dozen mostly Democratic leaning states, including California, Minnesota and New York. They have both expanded Medicaid for lower-income adults and started their own health insurance exchanges for people to shop for federally subsidized private insurance. On the other side are two dozen conservative states, such as Texas, Florida and Missouri. They have both rejected the Medicaid expansion and refused any role in running an online insurance exchange, leaving that entirely to the federal

government. The new federal figures, providing a state-by-state breakdown of enrollment in the new health care program through November, showed that the political differences among leaders over the initiative are turning into differences in participation among the uninsured. Even though many conservative states have higher levels of poverty and more people without health coverage, fewer of them may receive new insurance, said Dylan Roby, an assistant public health professor at the Center for Health Policy Research at the University of California, Los Angeles. With the patchwork implementation of the federal health care law, “the gap will exacerbate,” Roby said The U.S. Health and Human Services Department reported this week that 364,682 people had signed up for private coverage through the new health insurance marketplaces as of Nov. 30 and an additional 803,077 had been determined eligible for Medicaid. But the rate of residents gaining health coverage was more than three times as great in the states embracing the federal health care law than in those whose leaders have resisted it.

In the dozen states embracing the overhaul, more than 50 percent of those who applied for coverage picked an insurance plan or were eligible for Medicaid. That rate was barely 15 percent in the two dozen states that aren’t cooperating in the implementation of the federal health care law. “It’s very frustrating,” said U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat who voted for the federal law only to see it twice rebuffed in a statewide vote and repeatedly rejected by her home state’s Republican-led state Legislature. “The political point has trumped the services that Missourians need,” McCaskill said. In Texas, which has the highest rate of uninsured residents in the U.S., the GOP-controlled state Legislature opted not to create a state-run insurance marketplace and Republican Gov. Rick Perry also declined to expand Medicaid to cover more of the working poor. As of the end of November, just 14,000 Texans had signed up for insurance through the federally run marketplace and fewer than 17,000 of the nearly 245,000 applicants on the exchange had been determined to be eligible for Medicaid.

INTERPRETER: Worked on stage for entire service FROM PAGE A1

he underwent for his security clearance. The deputy minister said the translation company offered sub-standard services and the rate they purportedly paid the translator, $77 a day, is far below the usual rate of up to $164 an hour. Ordinarily, sign language interpreters in South Africa are switched every 20 minutes to maintain their concentration levels, she said. Jantjie was on the stage for the entire service that lasted more than four hours. The deputy minister declined to say who in South Africa’s government was responsible for contracting the company that provided the bogus translator, or how

those rules were flouted. “It’s an interdepartmental responsibility,” she said. “We are trying to establish what happened.” Jantjie insisted in the AP interview that he was doing proper sign-language interpretation of the speeches of world leaders. But he also apologized for his performance that has been dismissed by many sign-language experts as gibberish. “I would like to tell everybody that if I’ve offended anyone, please, forgive me,” Jantjie said in his tidy cement house outfitted with a big-screen TV and with two late-model cars in the carport on the outskirts of Soweto. “But what I was doing, I was

doing what I believe is my calling. I was doing what I believe makes a difference.” “What happened that day, I see angels come to the stadium … I start realizing that the problem is here. And the problem, I don’t know the attack of this problem, how will it come. Sometimes I react violent on that place. Sometimes I will see things that chase me,” Jantjie said. “I was in a very difficult position,” he added. “And remember those people, the president and everyone, they were armed, there was armed police around me. If I start panicking I’ll start being a problem. I have to deal with this in a manner so that I mustn’t embarrass my country.”

BUDGET: Measure would erase $63 billion in across-the-board cuts FROM PAGE A1

Murray of Washington — and endorsed by the White House — would set overall spending levels for the current budget year and the one that begins on Oct. 1, 2014. That straightforward action would probably eliminate the possibility of another government shutdown and reduce the opportunity for the periodic brinkmanship of the kind that has flourished in the current three-year era of divided government. The measure would erase $63 billion in across-theboard cuts set for January and early 2015 on domestic and defense programs, leaving about $140 billion in reductions in place. On the other side of the budget ledger, it projects savings totaling $85 billion over the coming decade, enough to show a deficit reduction of about $23 billion over the 10-year period. The cuts would be replaced with savings generated from dozens of sources. Among them are higher airline security fees, curbs on the pension benefits of new federal workers and additional costs for corporations whose pensions are guaranteed by the federal government. The measure also would slow the annual cost-of-living increase in benefits for military retirees under the age of 62. The bill includes a 90-day provision that postpones a 20 percent cut in reimbursements for doctors who

treat Medicare patients and replaces it with an increase of one-half of one percent The combination of short-term spending increases and long-term savings would send deficits higher for the current budget year and each of the next two, a dramatic departure from the conservative orthodoxy that Republicans have enforced since taking control of the House three years ago. That was a step too far for many Republicans, including some seeking election to the Senate next year. Rep. Jack Kingston of Georgia, one of several Senate hopefuls from his state, said he would vote against the legislation. He said the existing across-theboard cuts “have a tendency to cut out muscle with fat, but it’s still the only tool in town for cutting spending.” Rep. Tom Cotton, who is challenging Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas, announced his opposition, too, and said the legislation “busts the spending caps that took effect just months ago by spending billions now in exchange for supposed long-term spending cuts.” Other Republicans said despite shortcomings, the bill was the best the party could get in divided government. “We have Republican and Democratic-controlled houses and as a result no one solution is possible,” said Rep.

of California. Echoing Boehner’s sentiments, he said of the outside groups, “What do they want, another government shutdown? If so, they ought to run for Congress.” Democrats were conflicted, but for different reasons. There was general support for easing acrossthe-board reductions in programs like education, Head Start and transportation — deficit reduction that Rep. Louise Slaughter of New York called a disaster. Yet Democrats were unhappy that the measure lacked an extension of unemployment benefits due to expire on Dec. 28. Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland asked for a separate vote on that issue, but Republicans refused. The expiring program provides benefits to unemployed workers who have been without work for more than 26 weeks. The cost of a one-year extension was put at $25 billion. The debate on the House floor was overshadowed by Boehner’s comments at his news conference. The speaker, who famously says he is not affected by stress, has been criticized by some Republicans this year who accuse him of buckling under pressure from outside groups and their allies in the rank and file. He was elected to a second term as speaker in January after an attempt by some rebels to oust him

collapsed. The October shutdown seemed on Boehner’s mind. “They pushed us into this fight to defund ‘Obamacare’ and to shut down the government. … That wasn’t exactly the strategy that I had in mind,” he said. “But if you recall, the day before the government reopened, one of the people that — one of these groups stood up and said, well, we never really thought it would work. Are you kidding me?” Boehner’s remarks were part of a broader response by the Republican establishment as it struggles to counter the influence of organizations like Heritage Action, the Club For Growth, and the Senate Conservatives Fund. The Senate Republican campaign organization, effectively an extension of the leadership, let it be known it would not give any business to Jamestown Associates, an advertising firm that has worked for the Senate Conservatives Fund. Republican officials have urged traditional political allies like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to step up their involvement in campaigns as a way to counter the influence of tea party-aligned groups, and in one or two cases, have noted with satisfaction that particularly hard-line rebels in the House will face primary challengers next year. Dan Holler, a spokesman for Heritage Action, rebuffed Boehner’s accusation that

Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., Thursday during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington.

opposition to the legislation was uninformed. “Everything was widely known about what this deal was. We were concerned it was going to increase spending in the near term, and it does. We were concerned it was going to increase deficits in the near term and it does.”

The Club for Growth issued a statement that took no note of Boehner’s comments. It urged lawmakers to oppose the legislation, calling it “a deliberate attempt to avoid modest but much needed spending cuts in exchange for the promise of spending cuts in the future.”

WATERLOO — At one point, Spring Arbor University’s 2014 recruiting class for its girls soccer team was full. But a late opening allowed DeKalb senior Katie Hamlin to take advantage of a lifelong goal to play college soccer. Hamlin committed to the school a couple weeks ago and, on Thursday, fulfilled that commitment by signing a national letter of intent to play for the Michiganbased NAIA school. “I went on a college visit and got to practice with them a couple times, and that’s all the coaches had actually seen me play,” Hamlin said. “Apparently I did well.” Hamlin said she was little bit late in expressing her interest in playing at Spring Arbor after deciding to change her major to

ministry. Because of that change, she re-contacted another set of schools to find a place that offered her major. Her timing couldn’t have been more perfect with one of SAU’s commits dropping off right around when Hamlin contacted the school. “I was hoping to make this something quicker and (coach Jason Crist) was also on the same page. He needed to fill up his roster rather quickly,” Hamlin said. “And so he said, after the practice, I looked good and he was interested.” Hamlin, who plays club soccer with Fort Wayne Sport Club, played a major role in the rise of the Baron program the past four years, which culminated in a trip to the regional championship game this year. “She’s a gifted athlete with

GARRETT — Wrestling coaches can be a fickle lot sometimes. Even in victory, it’s easy to find faults and things for the coach to write down on a piece of paper or make a mental note of something to improve on. In a match where that coach’s team only wins two matches out of 14, well, that can sometimes create a situation where the next

day’s practice won’t be a whole lot of fun. That’s where the Garrett wrestling team finds itself after a difficult dual match against visiting Leo Thursday night. The Lions took 12 of the 14 matches — a number higher than Garrett first-year coach Nick Kraus expected – as the Railroaders lost, 61-12. “It was tough. We definitely thought we had a few matches

we could have won, and we just didn’t come out and deliver,” Kraus said. “We definitely didn’t wrestle to what we were capable of. I knew it would be a tough win, but I definitely didn’t imagine this happening.” There were a few highlights in the night, however.

WATERLOO — DeKalb junior cross country runner Mark Beckmann gets to add another piece to an ever-growing trophy room. On Tuesday, Beckmann was selected Class 4A First Team All-State by the Indiana Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches. He’s one of 12 runners in Beckmann the state — 48 in all classes — to receive the first-team distinction. “It means a lot being all-state,” Beckmann said. “It’s a big deal. It’s one more thing you can add to the resume.” Beckmann’s performance in the Indiana High School Athletic Association State Finals helped pave the way for the selection, when he finished ninth overall (15 minutes, 48.5 seconds) in the Nov. 2 event. Beckmann’s had more than a month and a half to reflect on his performance. “It’s been fun with everybody telling me good job and everything,” Beckmann said.

Hamlin scored four goals and tallied six assists this season, attempting 53 shots. She had a season-high two assists in the season opener against Northrop.

Crist is looking to play Hamlin at either midfield or defense, with an eye toward left back as Hamlin adjusts to the speed of the college game. “I’d be fine with whatever position they put me in,” Hamlin said. Crist was in attendance Thursday and had plenty of praise for his new player. “She’s a good technical player, she’s strong, smart, fits in to what we like to do and fits the mission of our school really well so it was just kind of a no-brainer,” Crist said. “We’re real selective in who we’re bringing in, and a lot of our players are mid-major Division I kind of players.”

Memphis punter beats Purdue’s Webster for Ray Guy award LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Memphis senior Tom Hornsey has been chosen the winner of the Ray Guy Award winner as the nation’s best punter. Hornsey was presented with the award Thursday during the 23rd College Football Awards Show at Disney.

Tiger Woods’ half-brother arrested for making threat PHOENIX (AP) — The half-brother of golf star Tiger Woods has been arrested in Phoenix for allegedly making a false bomb threat at the government building where he works. Phoenix police say 58-year-old Earl Dennison Woods Jr. is accused of calling in the threat at the Department of Economic Security building about 8:30 a.m. Thursday. Police say they were called after DES employees alerted building security. More than 100 people were evacuated from the building before Woods came forward and told police the phone call was meant as a joke and he didn’t expect his co-workers to take it seriously. Police say Woods has been booked on suspicion of attempting to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass others. They say Woods is apologetic and cooperating with the investigation. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

He led top-ranked Florida State to a 13-0 record and a berth in the BCS national championship game against Auburn. Along the way, Winston completed 67.9 percent of his passes for 3,820 yards and 38 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. He becomes the third Seminoles player to win the award. Winston was selected over fellow finalists AJ McCarron of Alabama and Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M.

Napoli, Red Sox sign 2-year, $32 million deal BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox finalized their two-year deal with first baseman Mike Napoli on Thursday, bringing back one of the biggest hitters from the World Series team.. Napoli will earn $32 million through 2015. The terms were agreed to last week, when Napoli tweeted, “The beard is coming back to Boston!!! Couldn’t be happier!!” Napoli’s bushy beard made him one of the most visible stars of the Red Sox, but it was his bat that helped them win the World Series. He drove in seven runs in the postseason as the Red Sox beat Tampa Bay, Detroit and St. Louis. Napoli hit .259 with 23 home runs and 92 RBIs this year in his first season with the Red Sox. To make room for Napoli on the 40-man roster, outfielder Alex Castellanos was designated for assignment.

Cook named ND’s defensive coordinator for bowl game SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says Kerry Cooks will serve as defensive coordinator for the Fighting Irish through the Pinstripe Bowl after Bob Diaco was named head coach at UConn. Cooks served as co-defensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach the past two seasons. He has been on the staff at Notre Dame since Kelly arrived in 2010, starting as outside linebackers coach. He played with Diaco at Iowa and played in the NFL for Minnesota, Green Bay, Atlanta and Jacksonville. Kelly previously announced that receivers coach Mike Denbrock would serve as offensive coordinator through the bowl game after Chuck Martin was named head coach at Miami of Ohio. Denbrock was passing game coordinator the past two seasons. He spent time as offensive and defensive coordinator under Kelly at Grand Valley State.

BY TERRI GORNEY

“Plant a Bass” was a campaign begun by the Izaak Walton League soon after it was established. The league formed in 1922 in Chicago and was named for Izaak Walton (1593-1683) who was an English writer and the father of fly fishing. Gene StrattonPorter was a member of the league and heartily supported this campaign. Most people know that Gene Stratton-Porter Gene was known as a bird woman. Few know that she and her husband, Charles Porter, were avid anglers. Charles and Gene spent many a happy hour fishing on the Wabash River close to their home in Geneva. In her book, “At the Foot of the Rainbow,” she wrote about fishing for black bass on the Wabash River at Rainbow Bottom. Charles and Gene also took fishing trips together. Gene wrote an article for the league’s magazine “Outdoor America” titled “My Great Day” and it was about a fishing trip that they took on the Indian River in northern Michigan. This is one of the best fishing stories written about “the one that almost got away.” When she built “Wildflower Woods” on Sylvan Lake in Rome City, she put in windows with “the million dollar view” and put her desk facing away from the window, so that she could concentrate while she wrote. Perhaps she would much rather have been be out on the lake fishing than writing. Why the “Plant a Bass” campaign? It was feared that black bass could become extinct. In 1921, the scientists with the American Fisheries Society tried to rally support for saving the fish and wrote to every prominent state official in the country. The league enlisted a few thousand fishermen to help stock waters with black bass. The United States Fisheries furnished the fish and delivered them to the fishermen’s nearest railroad station free of cost. The U.S. Fisheries was under the Department of Commerce, headed by Herbert Hoover in 1922. Hoover was also a member of the Izaak Walton League. The league wrote in an editorial “… let Secretary of Commerce Hoover know that the American angler is a planter as well as a catcher of fish.” Gene added her name to a growing number of celebrities to encourage others to join the conservation movement. She wrote, “I wish to add my name to those of other anglers and outdoor lovers as a hearty endorser of the ‘Plant a Bass’ campaign. If your plan were carefully carried out by every one to whom it was possible, it would do a greater degree of good than there would be any way of reckoning. I certainly shall put it into practice on the lake in northern Indiana on the banks of which I live, and I shall do everything in my power to have other fishermen residing there, to do the same.” If you are one of those who like to fish for bass on Sylvan Lake, you can thank Gene Stratton-Porter for helping “plant” them there.

Life-saving help offered at quitnowindiana.com To the editor: I hope everyone has seen the Tips From Former Smokers tobacco prevention commercials now playing on television, radio, in newspapers and on billboards. These ads show real people telling real stories, giving voice to over 8 million Americans who are suffering from smoking-related chronic diseases. They are hard-hitting and emotionally compelling. But they are exactly the kinds of commercials that are proven to encourage smokers to try to quit. Last year, 1.6 million smokers attempted to quit smoking because of the Tips from Former Smokers media campaign, and 200,000 Americans had quit smoking immediately following the three month campaign. Almost 80 percent of smokers and almost 75 percent of nonsmokers recalled seeing at least one of the ads and millions talked with loved ones about quitting. Here in Indiana, calls to the Indiana Tobacco Quitline, 1-800-QUIT-NOW, doubled when the ads were on air. The more we can get Hoosiers to try to quit, the more likely we can help them quit for good. The ads tell the stories of real people struggling with the kinds of smoking-related diseases that are far too common — including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, more severe adult asthma and complications from diabetes. They show how these illnesses have changed the way these people have to live their lives. Similar stories from Indiana can be seen at quitnowindiana.com. Most smokers say they want to quit. Real stories show how smoking can change the lives and health of Hoosiers. You can still see the ads on cdc.gov/tips. I hope they help inspire you to try to quit. And I hope you’ll call 1-800-QUIT-NOW, or visit equitnow.com to access free quit support. Greg Johnson Tobacco-Free Northeast Indiana

Teen wants to marry Internet boyfriend DEAR ABBY: My 17-year-old daughter, “Erica,” is planning to marry her 24-year-old boyfriend. I use the term “boyfriend” loosely because their relationship consists entirely of texting, talking on the phone and the Internet. There has been no dating or getting to know each other in person. Erica is intent on marrying this man even though he has lied to her several times in addition to having lied to us. She is planning to attend a four-year college. I’m not sure how to handle this. She hid the relationship from us for more than six months. I realize Erica needs to make her own mistakes, but I’m not sure how to make her understand my very real concern about this. I have raised other children who went through various phases of teenage

Any advice would be appreciated. — NEEDS HELP IN DEAR VIRGINIA DEAR ABBY NEEDS HELP: If Erica Jeanne Phillips were my daughter, I’d suggest that because this relationship is so serious it’s time you both paid a visit to her intended. Assuming her father is in the picture, he should be there, too. The subject of who will be paying for college

should be discussed, and whether Erica will be able to continue her education if she should become pregnant. It may give her a glimpse of exactly what she’s letting herself in for BEFORE the wedding. Of course the three of you will want to meet as many of his family and friends as possible. Because Erica won’t listen to reason, perhaps SEEING will bring her back down to earth. This will also give you (all) a chance to find out what else her “boyfriend” may have been lying about, including his age.

Type of breast biopsy varies with patients whether it is cancerous and, if so, how quickly it is likely to grow and spread. This information helps to guide treatment decisions. A breast biopsy can be done in different ways, depending on the location and size of the abnormality. • A doctor can perform fine needle ASK aspiration (FNA) in DOCTOR K. an office by inserting a slender Dr. Anthony needle into the breast and Komaroff drawing out (aspirating) a small amount of tissue from a suspicious lump. In some cases, the doctor may use ultrasound images to guide the needle. Ultrasound shows when the tip of the

needle has reached the suspicious area. Ultrasound has no damaging effects on the breast: Unlike a mammogram, ultrasound does not involve any radiation. • Most doctors prefer the large core needle biopsy method because it removes more tissue, and that makes for a more accurate diagnosis. A larger needle than the one used for FNA is used. The needle is inserted into the breast through a tiny incision. Using X-rays or ultrasound images as a guide, or by feeling the lump, the doctor moves the needle into the area of concern. He or she extracts one or more tissue samples through the needle using suction from a syringe. Stereotactic needle biopsy is a type of large core needle biopsy. It uses special imaging equipment to pinpoint the tissue to be removed. • In a surgical biopsy, the surgeon makes an incision and removes all or part of the abnormal tissue for

DEAR DOCTOR K: My doctor saw something suspicious on my mammogram and wants to do a breast biopsy. I understand there are several biopsy techniques. Can you tell me what they involve? DEAR READER: The invention of mammograms (X-rays of the breast) has saved many lives. Mammograms can spot a small, early breast cancer, and help doctors cure it. What your doctor saw was a spot that looked like it might be cancer. The mammogram, and other breast-imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cannot tell with certainty. If the mammogram looks suspicious, a biopsy is the only way to know for sure if there is a cancer. In a biopsy, a part of the suspicious-looking area is removed by a minor surgical procedure. This tissue is analyzed in a lab to determine

B5

examination. It is done in an operating room under local or general anesthesia. A biopsy that removes only part of the suspicious tissue is called an incisional biopsy. One that removes the entire lump is called an excisional biopsy. Sometimes a surgical biopsy is preceded by wire localization. During a mammogram, a radiologist inserts a small wire through a needle into your breast, with the end of the wire inside the suspicious area. This helps the surgeon more easily identify the suspicious area. Most biopsies reveal that the suspicious area of the breast is not cancer. Until the biopsy is done, a woman and her family and friends are understandably concerned. Most of the time, the news turns out to be good. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is AskDoctorK.com.
