GOOD MORNING Police seek woman and alleged abductor BY MATT GETTS

LAGRANGE — Authorities in LaGrange County are searching for a Peru woman who reportedly was abducted Wednesday night in LaGrange County. The missing woman is Jennifer Lee Bitzel, who is 5-foot-9, 130 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. Police said she may have cuts or Bitzel bruising to her face. Police are also looking for a person of interest in the case, Steven Gail Gose, 43. According to a news Gose release, Gose should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. Police declined to describe Gose’s suspected involvement in the abduction. Police said he is 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds and has an active warrant for his arrest on a parole violation. Police said Bitzel was last seen at approximately 10:30 p.m. Wednesday at a residence in the 3000 block of LaGrange C.R. 600E. It is alleged that at the residence, Bitzel was the victim of an extensive battery. She then was removed forcefully from the residence by a man who allegedly made death threats to Bitzel before forcing her into a silver, 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix, four-door sedan, bearing Indiana registration 543AIB. Bitzel’s two young children were left behind at the residence, and she has not been seen or heard from since, police said.

Site selector finds region amazing Speaks at local development forum BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — At Thursday’s sixth annual Northeast Indiana Regional Economic Development Forum, site selector Paige Webster said he was amazed at what the region has to offer industry looking to expand or relocate. “I’ve never been to this part of Indiana, but after only 14

hours here, I’ve been completely amazed what’s going on in this area,” he told about 140 business and industry representatives and elected officials from northeast Indiana. When Webster learned that Trine University in Angola produces a lot of engineering graduates each year, he again was startled, saying, “That’s something this region should market. I’ve

got a client who’s looking for 500 engineers.” The Noble County Economic Development Corp. sponsored the forum at Cobblestone Golf Course and Event Webster Center of Kendallville. Webster, owner of Webster Global Site Selectors in Phoenix, Ariz., spoke about what site

Budget battle looms Congress, Obama set for showdown


An excavator rips through a mobile home inside the abandoned Hidden Valley Mobile Home Park, off S.R. 8 on the county’s western edge, Thursday. A contractor began clearing the land

that is littered with trash, debris and abandoned homes – a scene that led the county to deem it in violation of code earlier this year.

Cleanup begins at Hidden Valley BY AARON ORGAN

AVILLA — The Hidden Valley Mobile Home Park wasteland on the county’s western edge finally is being cleared away. A crew with Auburn-based Pat Longsworth Excavating Inc. on Thursday demolished the first of a handful of dilapidated mobile homes still standing in the abandoned park off S.R. 8 west of Garrett. The company has been contracted by the land’s owners — Virginia-based holding company ATCF REO Holdings LLC,

according to the county assessor’s office — to clear the park’s 10.94 acres that have been relegated to a unsightly dump and fallen into violation of county code. As a large excavator ripped apart one mobile home, which had a recliner and a bed left behind, rodents scurried out from under deep piles of debris and trash. Pat Longsworth scooped pile after pile of rubble into a trailer, while another worker dismantled aluminum pieces from the mobile home’s frame to be recycled. In the midst of the dust, Don Myers with the DeKalb County

Building Department stood watching, after working for more than a year to follow a complaint on the property. The county received a complaint in May 2012 regarding the state of the land, which is littered in layers of discarded furniture and household items, trash, debris and other materials surrounding a scum-crusted small pond. Finding the land owner, though, became a wild goose chase for Myers after he learned it had been sold to a holding company with offices in

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional Republicans struggled to tamp down a family feud Thursday as they approached a politically charged showdown with the White House that combines the threat of a government shutdown, a possible first-ever federal default and the GOP’s bid to repeal the nation’s three-year-old health care law. One day after conceding that the Democratic-controlled Senate probably would prevail on the last part, Sen. Ted Cruz still vowed to do “everything and anything possible to defund Obamacare.” That includes a possible filibuster of legislation to prevent a partial government shutdown, added the Texas Republican. That was a step further than Sen. Mike Lee of Utah — Cruz’s partner in a summertime run of “Defund Obamacare” television commercials — was willing to go. President Barack Obama’s health care law “is not worth causing a shutdown over,” he said. The two men spoke at a news conference with several House Republicans where lawmakers stressed they were unified and thanked Speaker John Boehner for agreeing to tie the anti-shutdown and anti-Obamacare provisions into one bill.



Butler Police seize meth lab, make one arrest BUTLER — A theft complaint resulted in the arrest of a Fort Wayne man Wednesday, according to Butler Police. William F. Wernle, 27, of the 4700 block of Arlington Avenue, Fort Wayne, has been charged with possession of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a park or school, a Class B felony; possession of precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine within 1,000 Wernle feet of a park or school, a Class C felony; theft, a Class D felony; and possession of paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor, Butler Police said. Wernle was being held at the DeKalb County Jail for $15,500 bail. Assistant Chief Matthew Traster was called to a theft complaint in the 200 block of

West Main Street around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Butler Police Chief Jim Nichols said. While investigating, Nichols said Traster discovered two active, one-pot meth labs that had been abandoned, allegedly by the theft suspect. Also found at the West Main Street address were numerous precursors used in the production of meth, Nichols said. As Traster processed that scene, Detective Matthew Tamez and Officer Casey Kintz located and apprehended Wernle at an apartment complex in the 100 block of South Broadway. During the interview process, Wernle allegedly admitted his involvement in the theft and meth labs, Nichols added. “This is our second meth lab seizure within six days,” Nichols said. “Our intelligence network and the dedication of our officers continues to be our best weapon against those who are involved with meth.

DeKalb Central hires new associate principal BY KATHRYN BASSETT

Health fair holds lessons BY KATHRYN BASSETT

WATERLOO — DeKalb Middle School sixth-grader Tabitha Butler adjusted her goggles and steadied herself, ready to walk the straight line taped in front of her on the school gymnasium floor. “Ready?� asked school resource officer Tim Baker. Putting one foot in front of the other, Butler wobbled, veered and almost toppled in the exercise designed to show the effects of drinking and driving. Butler was wearing Fatal Vision goggles that simulate how intoxication affects a person’s vision, Baker explained. The activity was part of the Student Focus on Health event at the middle school Thursday. Thirty vendors from DeKalb and Allen counties provided hands-on displays and demonstrations on a variety of health topics. Students participated in health checks such as

blood pressure, visual acuity, flexibility and height and weight. They also learned about dental health, the importance of hand-washing, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, sprains and strains, body image, the effects of tobacco, nutrition and the fat content in fast food. Nancy Fecher of the American Red Cross demonstrated cardiopulmonary resuscitation and how to use a defibrillator. She made sure students knew the life-saving device is on the wall outside the school gym. If a situation arises where a student is told to get the device, Fecher said, “It’s the one time you run.� Health fair student volunteer Olivia Marsh used a model of healthy lungs and a smoker’s lungs to demonstrate the effects of smoking and tobacco. Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, nursing student Kate Avery showed students test tubes

containing the fat that is found in fast food items. Students were asked to rank fast food menu items according to their fat content. “We want the kids to be responsible for their own health,� said DeKalb Middle School teacher Jamie Curtis. “We want them to take an active part in understanding what they are eating, why they exercise, and what happens if we don’t put those together.� Students moved through the stations, and each wrote down one fact learned at each booth. Removing the Fatal Vision goggles, Butler looked at her path and how she had veered so far off-course. “When you put on the goggles, it’s completely blurry and you lose your balance,� Butler said. “Don’t drink and drive, because your vision is all messed up, and you’ll end up crashing.�

WATERLOO — The DeKalb Central school board Tuesday voted to hire Barry Schrock as the new associate principal at DeKalb High School. The board approved a two-year contract for 220 days per year with an annual salary of $76,000. He will begin his duties Monday, filling a vacancy. Schrock comes to DeKalb High School with six years of administrative experience at Fort Wayne Community Schools. He has served as the assistant principal at Wayne High School/New Tech Academy, assistant principal and freshman academy director at Snider High School and site coordinator and director of smaller learning communities at Elmhurst High School. Superintendent Sherry Grate said numerous applications were received for the position. Four candidates were interviewed by members of the district’s leadership team. The pool was narrowed to two candidates, who were invited to an evening of interaction with about 20 stakeholders at the high school, Grate said. In other business Tuesday night: • The board approved a one-time transfer of $300,000 from the rainy day fund to the general fund to make up for full-day kindergarten funding the district will not be receiving from the state. Chief financial officer Lance Brauchla explained that each December, the district receives a lump sum amount from the state that represents its revenue from offering full-day kindergarten. The 2013 general

Police Blotter • Collision hurts two AUBURN — Both drivers reported pain after a rear-end collision Wednesday at 2:20 p.m. on East Seventh Street at Eckhart Avenue, Auburn Police said. Robert W. Keyes, 87, of Auburn, complained of pain in his chest area. Todd L. Coleman, 49, of Auburn reported pain in his knee, lower leg or foot. Police said Coleman, driving a 2012 Jeep Laredo, stopped in traffic on Seventh Street for a vehicle in front of him, which was waiting to turn northbound on Eckhart Avenue. Keyes did not see Coleman’s vehicle in front of him, and his 2008 Ford Taurus hit the rear of the Jeep at full speed. Police said two witnesses reported that it appeared Keyes never used his brakes. Police said following too closely caused the collision. A report estimated total damage at up to $10,000.

fund budget included revenue of $600,000, which was expected to be received in December 2013. During the spring 2013 legislative session, the process changed, Brauchla said. The funding now will be included in the district’s monthly basic grant revenue. The district will receive funding beginning in January 2014. “The issue is that the Legislature indicated that schools would not receive the grant funding in December 2013 that was approved in each budget,â€? Brauchla said in a memo to the board. “What this means to DeKalb Central schools is that our general fund cash balance will be $600,000 lower as of Dec. 31, 3013 than projected. It also means that $300,000 of that decrease is permanent.â€? • The board approved a request for the DeKalb High School show choir to participate in a competition in Waltham, Mass., in April 2014. The choir will leave the school on April 3 and spend April 4 sightseeing in Boston and the surrounding area. The competition will take place April 5. The group will spent April 6 and 7 in New York City, where it will attend a Broadway show and see the Empire State Building, the 9/11 Memorial and other attractions. The group will arrive home April 8. • The board conducted a public hearing on the 2014 budget. The total advertised budget is $37.3 million. It is made up of $24.2 million in the general fund; $5.6 million in the debt service fund; $4.1 million in the capital projects fund; $2.6 million in the transportation fund; $490,000 in the bus replacement fund; and $250,000 in the rainy day fund.

AUBURN — Local police officers arrested four people Tuesday and Wednesday, according to DeKalb County Jail records. Nicole Kimmel, 32, of the 800 block of South Randolph Street, Garrett, was arrested Tuesday at

6:14 p.m. by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department for alleged contempt of court. Tammy R. Fugate, 34, of the 400 block of Phillip Street, Auburn, was arrested Tuesday at 8:38 p.m by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department on a warrant charging her with operating a motor vehicle never having a valid license, a Class C misdemeanor. Nichole Hayden, 30, of the 500 block of Lane 221, Hamilton, was arrested Wednesday at 10:20 a.m. by the Indiana State Police for alleged failure to appear in court. Michelle Headley, 48, of the 10400 block of East 630S, Hudson, was arrested Wednesday at 4:33 p.m. by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department on a charge of driving while suspended with a prior offense.

Auburn man jailed in Noble County ALBION — An Auburn man was booked into the Noble County Jail Wednesday, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. Douglas Randal Martin, 25, of the 2400 block of C.R. 50, was booked on a probation violation warrant stemming from original charges of burglary and theft.

The advertised budget sets maximum amounts, which typically are reduced in the final budget. The 2013 budget was advertised at $37.3 million and was reduced to $37.1 million, the board heard. Local property tax revenue to be collected for 2014 is advertised at $12.1 million, compared to the $12.5 million advertised for 2013. The actual amount of tax revenue collected in 2013 was $11 million. The general fund makes up 65 percent of the budget. Salaries and benefits account for 94 percent of the general fund. In 2014, $250,000 in annual salaries are being paid by grants and federal funds. Salaries and benefits make up 69 percent of the transportation budget. The transportation fund once again is able to operate without any general fund contribution. Stabilization of fuel prices has allowed the transportation fund to operate within the maximums established by the state, the board heard. The 2014 school bus replacement budget includes buying four regular school buses, one handicapped-accessible bus and the district’s share, or 1/12th, of two special education cooperative buses. • The board accepted the retirement of Country Meadow Elementary School custodian Cathy Bush and the resignations of: bus drivers Jan Ellert and Diana Walker; food service employees Vickie Kemerly and Deb Knisely; paraprofessionals Jen Hartman, Deidre Louthan, Shawn Clifford, Veronica Disque and Hal Oberholtzer; and McKenney-Harrison secretary-treasurer Treva Finn, who will become the district’s deputy treasurer. • The board approved these hirings and appointments: bus drivers Dave DeWitt, Gina Maloney and Richard Wolf; copy central employees Robin Scranage and Jennifer Lockhart; food service employees Jeanette Fingleton and Tina Owens; paraprofessionals Sherma Pierson, Cathy Wells, Kelly Bodnar, Kim Kumpfmiller, Elizabeth Hughes and Payton Rhodes; McKenney-Harrison secretary Michelle Browand; high school athletic department secretary Emily Prosser; and J.R. Watson secretary Sheri Waters. The board approved contracted services agreements with Rachelle Mabee for school psychological services and Lisa Price as the high school health careers education instructor.

The Constitution: The people, the press and the public’s right to know

We welcome letters to the editor. All letters must be submitted with the author’s signature, address and daytime telephone number. We reserve the right to reject or edit letters on the basis of libel, poor taste or repetition. Mail letters to:


In the summer of 1787, the nation’s most influential lawyers, generals and politicians gathered in Philadelphia with a single purpose: To create a government that was ruled by the people instead of ruling them. The first words of the Constitution underscored this principal: “We, the people, of the United States of America…” To protect the people’s power, our founding fathers carefully divided the government into three branches. Caroline With this system, no one Little person or governmental branch could ever rule with absolute authority. The checks and balances provide a framework for the government. However, the cornerstone of our democracy is the unique privilege and responsibility of every citizen to be engaged through voting, public offices, representation in Congress and myriad other ways. For a society to be responsible and powerful, it must be informed. Our free press, protected by the first Constitutional amendment, plays a critical role in ensuring that every American has constant access to important and trustworthy news. Thomas Jefferson once said, “Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.” As he emphasized, this free flow of information to the public is essential to preserving our American democracy. In addition to educating and reporting, the press serves as the public’s independent watchdog, charged with keeping governments, businesses and other organizations in check. What other institution has the power to talk to key leaders, inspire social change and uncover corruption, while analyzing and providing context for major global events? Thanks to diligent reporting, citizens are empowered to take a stance on critical issues, enact change and demand the best from their leaders. Recent headlines have demonstrated that we can’t take the power of the press for granted. After it was revealed this summer that the government secretly obtained AP phone records and the email content of Fox News reporter James Rosen, while also ruling that New York Times reporter James Risen must disclose his confidential sources, it became clear that confidential sources and the integrity of the newsgathering process must also be specifically protected. Without a free press that can defend its sources, American democracy will suffer. The Newspaper Association of America applauded the vote last week by the Senate Judiciary Committee to approve the Free Flow of Information Act for vote in the Senate. This bill represents a critical step in preserving the public’s right to know while still ensuring effective law enforcement. While we celebrate this, we know that news organizations and the government itself comprise only a piece of the equation. To have a strong democracy and educated citizenry, it is up to you to take advantage of your opportunities to be engaged. It is up to you to stay informed by reading newspapers, visiting their websites or accessing their news apps, and up to you to show up at the polls. The Constitution was ratified on Sept. 17, a day that we continue to commemorate every year as the birth of our uniquely American government. There is no better way to honor our Constitution and our founding fathers than by exercising our individual right to be informed. CAROLINE LITTLE is president and CEO of the Newspaper Association of America in Arlington, Va.

Letter to The Editor • Fair changes entry rules in agriculture, horticulture To the editor: Changes have been made in the entry rules in the Agriculture and Horticulture Department for the DeKalb County Fair for 2013. In the horticulture exhibits, herbs have been added as a category for being judged. It was decided that we would have fresh potted herbs instead of the dried herbs.

There is an error in the fair book, herbs should be exhibited fresh in a 4-8-inch pot. In the agriculture exhibits, it was decided that those entering youth exhibits must be 10 years to 17 years of age. Any entries entered in the youth category in both departments must have an adult and youth present to sign in all entries. School classes are encouraged to exhibit as a class. There will be ribbons, but no prize money. We anticipate with such good weather in

the beginning of summer that we will have many exceptional exhibits. We encourage everyone to bring in their best DeKalb County-grown exhibits and see if they can earn a ribbon and bragging rights. Check in your exhibits on Monday, Sept. 23, from noon to 6 p.m. Judging is Tuesday, Sept. 24, from 9 a.m. to noon. Looking forward to see you at the fair. Rosemary Hartman Corunna

Smoking can lead to children’s hearing loss Teenagers are more likely to have hearing loss if their mothers smoked during pregnancy, according to a new study that included audio tests of close to 1,000 youth. According to Reuters Health, researchers said that although the link was “relatively modest,” even limited hearing loss can have implications for kids’ learning and social skills — so it’s important to reach out to those who might need help, and to prevent as much exposure as possible. The findings “should be part of all our efforts to get people not to smoke, and especially not to smoke when they’re pregnant,” said Dr. Michael Weitzman, a child health researcher from the New York University School of Medicine, who led the study. Past research has tied smoking during pregnancy to a range of childhood problems, including asthma and learning disabilities. In another study, Weitzman and his colleagues found exposure to secondhand smoke during adolescence was linked to hearing loss, based on blood tests for nicotine-related products.

Past research has tied smoking during pregnancy to a range of childhood problems, including asthma Johnson and learning disabilities. In another study, Weitzman and his colleagues found exposure to secondhand smoke during adolescence was linked to hearing loss, based on blood tests for nicotine-related products. This time, they analyzed data on a group of 12- to 15-year-olds who underwent hearing tests in 2005-2006 as part of a national health survey, and whose parents were asked about smoking in pregnancy. The hearing exams were done in both ears to see if kids had any trouble picking up on sounds at different pitches.

Past research has tied smoking during pregnancy to a range of childhood problems, including asthma and learning disabilities.

• Just over 16 percent of youth had moms who smoked while pregnant, the study team reported in JAMA Otolaryngology — Head & Neck Surgery. Those kids were especially at risk for hearing loss at the lower frequencies of human speech: one in six had hearing problems in one ear, compared to one in 14 whose moms didn’t smoke. Weitzman said many teens with mild hearing loss don’t realize they have a problem, but that it can lead to irritability and trouble in school.

Pope calling for Catholic balance VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has warned that the Catholic Church’s moral structure might “fall like a house of cards” if it doesn’t balance its divisive rules about abortion, gays and contraception with the greater need to make it a merciful, more welcoming place for all. Six months into his papacy, Francis set out his vision for the church and his priorities as pope in a lengthy and remarkably blunt interview with La Civilta Cattolica, the Italian Jesuit magazine. It was published simultaneously Thursday in Jesuit journals in 16 countries, including America magazine in the U.S. In the 12,000-word article, Francis expands on his ground-breaking comments over the summer about gays and acknowledges some of his own faults. He sheds light on his favorite composers, artists, authors and films (Mozart, Caravaggio, Dostoevsky and Fellini’s “La Strada”) and says he prays even while at the dentist’s office. But his vision of what the church should be stands out, primarily because it contrasts so sharply with many of the priorities of his immediate predecessors, John Paul II and Benedict XVI. They were both intellectuals for whom doctrine was paramount, an orientation that guided the selection of a generation of bishops and cardinals around the globe. Francis said the dogmatic and the moral teachings of the church were not all

Security checks too large a task WASHINGTON (AP) — The government’s sprawling system of background checks and security clearances is so unreliable it’s virtually impossible to adequately investigate the nearly 5 million Americans who have them and make sure they can be trusted with access to military and sensitive civilian buildings, an Associated Press review found. Case after case has exposed problems for years, including recent instances when workers the government approved have been implicated in mass shootings, espionage and damaging disclosures of national secrets. In the latest violence, the Navy Yard gunman passed at least two background checks and kept his military security clearance despite serious red flags about violent incidents and psychological problems. The AP’s review — based on interviews, documents and other data

Cremation Services


— found the government overwhelmed with the task of investigating the lives of so many prospective employees and federal contractors and then periodically re-examining them. The system focuses on identifying applicants who could be blackmailed or persuaded to sell national secrets, not commit acts of violence. And it relies on incomplete databases and a network of private vetting companies that earn hundreds of millions of dollars to perform checks but whose investigators are sometimes criminally prosecuted themselves for lying about background interviews that never occurred. “It’s too many people to keep track of with the resources that they have, and too many people have access to information,” said Mark Riley, a Maryland lawyer who represents people who have been denied clearances or had them revoked.

equivalent. “The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently,” Francis said. “We have to find a new balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.” Rather, he said, the Catholic Church must be like a “field hospital after battle,” healing the wounds of its faithful and going out to find those who have been hurt, excluded or have fallen away. “The church sometimes has locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules,” he lamented. “The most important thing is the first proclamation: Jesus Christ has saved you. And the ministers of the church must be ministers of mercy above all.” The admonition is likely to have sharp reverberations in the United States, where some bishops have already publicly voiced dismay that Francis hasn’t hammered home church teaching on abortion, contraception and homosexuality — areas of the culture wars where U.S. bishops often put themselves on the front lines. U.S. bishops were also behind Benedict’s crackdown on American nuns, who were accused of letting doctrine take a backseat to their social justice work caring for the poor — precisely the priority that Francis is endorsing.

Michael C. Hall saying goodbye to ‘Dexter’ NEW YORK (AP) — Dexter Morgan’s life seemed well-ordered at first glance, including the serial killer thing. That turned out to be unsustainable. As “Dexter” reaches its finale, to air on Showtime Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern, the character portrayed by actor Michael C. Hall is no longer strictly ruled by the code set down by his adoptive father upon noticing his son craved killing. Dexter was told only to murder people who are proven killers themselves and likely to kill again, and to thoroughly cover his tracks. The narrative device made it possible for viewers to tolerate, even like, someone who did reprehensible things. “He’s so far from anything I experienced him to be at the beginning,” Hall said over lunch, a few weeks after filming the 96th and final episode of the series that began in 2006. “He’s the same character, but he’s in many ways a different person,” Hall said. “He had successfully compartmentalized efficient killing and convinced himself that he is, in fact, incapable of authentic human emotion when we first met him. But that all falls apart, slowly but surely.” Without the writers providing challenges, “Dexter” ran the risk of becoming an unimaginative murder-of-the-week procedural. Dexter’s boundaries were most severely tested at the end of the fourth season when his wife, Rita, was killed and in season six when his half-sister, Debra (real life ex-wife Jennifer Carpenter), saw him knifing someone in the chest. “I’ve always thought that it was more interesting to challenge the audience’s affection for the character and to move him into choppy waters,” Hall said. He can appreciate people who say they like his work in “Dexter.” People who say they like Dexter is something else entirely, although Hall has his theories about those fans.

Visit our booth at the fair!

“We live in a world where we have an increasing sense that we’re not in control … and Dexter, in his micro way, controls his universe and that is very appealing to some people,” he said. “We all have a sense of injustice in the world, and Dexter is certainly exacting some form of Hall justice within the confines of his own.” Of course, he said, “maybe it’s not that deep. Maybe people have murderous impulses they don’t act upon and enjoy watching somebody who gets away with it.” “Dexter” is going out strong. Ratings are higher during the current eighth and last season than they’ve ever been. That’s a familiar pattern for many critically-acclaimed cable series that see their audiences grow as new fans discover the stories and binge on them while the show is on hiatus. The series was pivotal to Showtime’s development, said Matthew Blank, the network’s chief executive. “It really felt like this is what Showtime should be,” he said. “Homeland” and “Ray Donovan” may not have existed without its example. Showtime will look for ways to keep the character alive even after “Dexter” ends, Blank said. He wasn’t clear on how that would happen. Hall, 42, is measured in how he makes sure to say nothing revealing in advance about the finale (“Some people will be happy with it, some people will be troubled by it,” he said. “Perhaps some people will be a combination of those things.”) He will miss certain things about playing Dexter. The character was decisive and didn’t hesitate to take action, even at times of extreme stress and even when that action was morally questionable.

Adam Goldberg plays back his youth on new sitcom BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — From “I Love Lucy” at the dawn of TV, through “Roseanne” and “Seinfeld” and scores of long-forgotten shows, situation comedy has found inspiration in the lives of its creators. But few sitcoms have been more autobiographical than “The Goldbergs,” which draws on the childhood and high-decibel domestic life of Adam Goldberg, who grew up to be an actor, director and producer but before that, as this show reveals amusingly, was a pint-sized videographer, capturing the hijinks of his home life as a preteen with his family’s shoeboxsized VHS camcorder. This was the 1980s, a simpler time when “there were no parenting blogs or peanut allergies,” as the show notes wistfully, “just a whole lot of crazy” — at least within the Goldberg household. Now the archive of tapes young Adam recorded (along with vivid memories he retains as an adult) propel “The Goldbergs,” a full-throated, funny and oddly charming comedy that serves as a timeless homage to child-raising. “This is how you communicate: You scream and yell and a minute later

everything is fine,” says Goldberg, summing up his family’s policy. “Then you move on.” And since there are more than 100 tapes reaching all the way into Goldberg’s college years with his family, there’ll be no shortage of source material if the show catches on. (It premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. EDT on ABC.) Goldberg says he nursed the idea for the show for years. “For a long time I just wasn’t ready to write something so personal about my family,” he says. “Then I had kids of my own, and I was able to look at how my parents raised me with some perspective.” Goldberg, now 42 and the father of a 5-year-old boy and a 2-year-old daughter, is ably portrayed as a precocious, camera-wielding 11-year-old by newcomer Sean Giambrone. Adam’s overbearing mother Beverly and gruff, excitable dad Murray are played by Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”) and Jeff Garlin (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”). Troy Gentile (“Good Luck Chuck”) plays volatile middle child Barry, and Hayley Orrantia (“The X Factor”) is 17-year-old sister

Sharing” opening today, plus an upcoming TV show with Billy Crystal and the lead in a Sam Kinison biopic among several other projects, it’s like Gad rode the momentum of his Tony-nominated starring role in Broadway’s “Book of Mormon” right into the Hollywood spotlight. The 32-year-old, who knew at age 4 that he wanted to be an entertainer, says he’s so grateful for the success — which coincided with the birth of his first child — that he’s found a new level of peace. “My wife grounds me. My daughter grounds me. I have a lot to be grateful for outside of work that I think puts me at peace in life,” he said. “And it allows you to do better work. I’m no longer chasing. I feel like when you stop chasing and you can just relax, take things one step at a time, it all

Erica (the lone invention; the real-life Goldberg brood consists of three brothers). George Segal (“Just Shoot Me”) is 80-year-old grandfather Pops Solomon, a Trans-Am-driving rascal with a Don Juan complex. Viewers who wonder just how true-to-life the series is will have their doubts eased at the end of the first episode, when snippets from the show unfold alongside clips from Goldberg’s tapes that mirror the scripted words and actions. Goldberg says it was a two-minute sampler of the tapes that helped sell the show to the network, as well as selling certain of the actors on coming aboard. Wendi McLendon-Covey recalls how she saw a vintage Beverly Goldberg ranting at one of the kids, f-words flying, before abruptly cooing, “Oh, that’s a nice sweater!” “The way she turned things on a dime seemed insane,” McLendon-Covey laughs. “I thought that would be fun to play.” Goldberg says McLendonCovey was his only choice to play his mom, and he marvels at how George Segal is a dead ringer for his grandfather. “We saw tons of Murrays,

but we always kept coming back to Jeff Garlin. He channels my dad in this. “Casting me was really fun,” adds Goldberg gleefully, “and I think Sean has the perfect balance. What we wanted is a devilish little kid: someone you love but who was also a little sneak. “My brothers were 7 and 9 years older, and I was overlooked and ignored,” Goldberg says, explaining his early foray into cinema verite back in his hometown of Jenkinstown, Pa. “So I was an observer anyway. But I was obsessed with movies, and when we got this video camera it blended into everything I loved, and there was always some kind of fight to film. I thought it was hilarious.” The real-life Goldbergs (who, other than Adam’s deceased father and grandfather, are alive and well) haven’t seen the show, nor have they met their TV doppelgangers. “It must be difficult for them,” says Garlin — “or it will be, if the show’s a success.” But he says he feels no pressure to win the Goldbergs’ approval, “and if the family visited the set and they were starting to freak me out, I’d just walk away.”

works out. Here’s a look at how things are working out for him right now: • “Thanks for Sharing”: In this ensemble story, Gad plays a sex addict in denial about his condition. Busted after rubbing up against an innocent woman on a subway, he lands in a 12-step group where an unlikely friendship helps his recovery. Writer-director Stuart Blumberg said he knew Gad was his guy after seeing “Book of Mormon.” “When Josh read the script, he goes, ‘So, have you been following me around?’” Blumberg said. “I didn’t know anything about his personal life, but sometimes you write a part and then you meet just the person to play it.” • “Jobs”: Gad plays Steve Wozniak in this unauthorized Steve Jobs biopic. Even Wozniak, not a big fan of the film, appreciated the performance, saying he “thought the acting throughout was good.” Gad didn’t get to meet the computer pioneer before filming but has since “started an email chain” with the Apple co-founder. The actor approached the real-life role “with great care and great respect” and is now doing the same for the… • Sam Kinison biopic: Gad won’t say much about the film set for production next spring, other than he’s already begun preparing for the Larry Charles-directed biopic.

Urbanski extends deal with orchestra INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra will keep its music director through the 2017-18 season. The orchestra announced Thursday that Krzysztof Urbanski has agreed to extend his contract and will continue to split his time between the ISO and symphonies in Norway and Tokyo. Urbanski said in a statement the decision to stay “felt right” and that he’s eager to be part of the orchestra’s future. The Poland native signed a four-year contract with the orchestra in 2011 and is its seventh music director. Urbanski will return to the podium at Indianapolis’ Hilbert Circle Theatre for the symphony’s Opening Night Gala on Friday.

BEIRUT (AP) — Al-Qaida militants seized a town near the Turkish border Thursday after expelling Westernbacked rebels from the area, demonstrating the growing power of jihadis as they seek to expand their influence across opposition-held Syrian territory. The infighting — now engulfing many parts of northern Syria — threatened to further split opposition forces outgunned by President Bashar Assad’s troops and strengthen his hand as he engages with world powers on relinquishing his chemical weapons. Opposition forces who had been hoping that U.S.-led military strikes would help tip the balance in the civil war are growing increasingly desperate after the Obama administration shelved those plans in favor of a diplomatic solution. Many rebels blame jihadis in their ranks for the West’s reluctance to intervene militarily in Syria or give them the advanced

weapons they need. There is also growing concern that the dominant role the extremists are playing is discrediting the rebellion. Yet the jihadis, including members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an al-Qaida offshoot, have been some of the most effective forces on the battlefield, fighting alongside the Westernbacked Free Syrian Army to capture military facilities, strategic installations and key neighborhoods in cities such as Aleppo and Homs. But the two sides have turned their guns on each other. Turf wars and retaliatory killings have evolved into ferocious battles in what has effectively become a war within a war in northern and eastern Syria, leaving hundreds dead on both sides. “The moderates realized that they’re losing a lot of territory to the Islamists and jihadi fighters, and so they’re more desperate,” said Aaron Zelin, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

The battles for control of Azaz, a town only few kilometers from the Turkish border, represents some of the worst infighting in recent months. Members of ISIL overran the town Wednesday evening, killing several fighters from the Free Syrian Army rebel umbrella group, before forcing them to pull out. Amateur video showed dozens of gunmen with heavy machine guns on pickup trucks gathering at the border with Turkey with reinforcements. The Associated Press was able to verify the footage based on interviews and other reporting on the events depicted. A relatively moderate Islamist group with influence in the region, the al-Tawheed brigade, was mediating Thursday to get the al-Qaida-linked militants to leave Azaz, but fighting was continuing. The prospect of al-Qaida militants so near the frontier is worrisome for the Turkish government.


10-day period of intense uncertainty, with Boehner pledging to avoid a shutdown yet also hoping to come away with a bite out of the health care law, even if less than complete defunding. Congressional aides pointed out during the day, for example, that if the Senate rewrites the House-passed bill to leave the health care law in place, Boehner and the rest of the House leadership could still seek further changes before passing it a second time. For their part, the White House and majority Democrats in the Senate will be trying to protect the health care law that stands as Obama’s signature domestic accomplishment — without complicating the re-election chances of senators on the 2014 ballot in swing states. The White House intruded briefly on the Republican feud, pledging that Obama would veto any

legislation that blocks the health care law from taking full effect. The defunding drive “advances a narrow ideological agenda that threatens our economy and the interests of the middle class” and would deny “millions of hard-working, middle-class families the security of affordable health coverage,” it said. The effort seeking virtual repeal of the law as part of a government funding bill gained powerful momentum over the summer when the Senate Conservatives Fund, Heritage Action and other groups with tea party ties launched a nationwide campaign. Cruz and Lee played prominent roles, each appearing in television ads aimed at pressuring Republican lawmakers not to yield. “Republicans in Congress can stop Obamacare if they simply refuse to fund it,” Lee says in one SCF-funded commercial.

Warming lull raises concerns BUDGET: Washington faces 10 days of uncertainty STOCKHOLM (AP) — Scientists working on a landmark U.N. report on climate change are struggling to explain why global warming appears to have slowed down in the past 15 years even though greenhouse gas emissions keep rising. Leaked documents obtained by The Associated Press show there are deep concerns among governments over how to address the issue ahead of next week’s meeting of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Climate skeptics have used the lull in surface

warming since 1998 to cast doubt on the scientific consensus that humans are cooking the planet by burning fossil fuels and cutting down CO2-absorbing forests. The IPCC report is expected to affirm the human link with greater certainty than ever, but the panel is under pressure to also address the recent lower rate of warming, which scientists say is likely due to heat going deep into the ocean and natural climate fluctuations. “I think to not address it would be a problem because then you basically have the

denialists saying, ‘Look the IPCC is silent on this issue,’” said Alden Meyer, of the Union of Concerned Scientists. In a leaked June draft of the report’s summary from policy-makers, the IPCC said the rate of warming in 1998-2012 was about half the average rate since 1951. It cited natural variability in the climate system, as well as cooling effects from volcanic eruptions and a downward phase in solar activity. But several governments that reviewed the draft objected to how the issue was tackled.

That bill is on track for House passage on Friday, with a Senate showdown to follow. The House intends to move quickly next week with a separate bill to put the health care law on ice, this one a measure that also would allow the Treasury to avoid a default that could destabilize the economy. Boehner himself sought to redirect the political fire at Obama, accusing him of being ready to negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin over Syria but not engage with Republicans on raising the nation’s debt limit, an issue that could lead to national default. But he also got in a subtle jab at Cruz and Senate conservatives who have been clamoring for weeks for a showdown on the health care law. “I expect my Senate colleagues to be up for the battle,” he said. The prospect is for a

SITE SELECTOR: Praises Indiana’s certified sites FROM PAGE A1

selectors look for when recommending sites for clients. Webster is one of 275 site selectors in the nation who assist with about 75 percent of new and expanding industrial projects in the country. Site selectors are hired by companies to research and recommend sites that fit various criteria. They must be knowledgeable about the communities they’re considering, the properties available in each community and the availability of labor. Company and site selectors evaluate communities for costs of labor, real estate, utilities and transportation and quality of life. Companies moved their operations to Asia and Mexico because of cheap labor, but labor costs in those parts of the world are increasing, so some

companies are returning to the United States, Webster said. “Labor costs is a big factor,” he said. Site selectors may contact human resources managers of companies in communities with available industrial sites to learn more about the local labor situation. Certified sites that have infrastructure and utilities and are close to major transportation routes are a plus, according to Webster. California has five certified sites. Indiana has 55. He praised the state’s economic practitioners for pushing for certified sites and marketing them. For local, regional and state economic developers, Webster said national job growth is expected in computational systems, data sectors, digital manufacturing, nanotechnology, health care and medical devices, food processing and warehousing.

“Developing relationships with business and industry is key for economic practitioners,” said Webster. Events such as trade and manufacturing shows are opportunities to network and arrange meetings. When a site selector considers a community’s quality of life, he’s looking at school systems, recreational and cultural activities, Webster said. Incentives to industry may be tax breaks, training grants and even cash. Boeing is building a major expansion project in Charleston, S.C., because the state has a Right To Work law, the city has a port and the state gave Boeing $340 million, according to Webster. “Boeing is in the process of purchasing Charleston’s airport,” he added. The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership selected Webster as the forum’s keynote speaker.

CLEANUP: County hopes for completion in a month FROM PAGE A1

New Orleans, Florida and Virginia. After repeated attempts, the county finally this spring ordered the company to clean the site in “a timely fashion,” ruling the park a “public environmental nuisance,” due to excessive trash and debris. With no action, the DeKalb County commissioners in July ordered notification be sent to the owners demanding action toward cleaning the site within 30 days or the county would impose penalties.

Penalizing the owners wasn’t necessary. The excavating company was contracted in late August and Thursday began the job of clearing the mess. Myers said he hopes the demolition and clean up will be completed within a month. He’s given the excavating company no hard timetable, though, and won’t as long as progress continues, he said. Myers said he’s been in touch with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management concerning a septic system

package plant on the property that long ago failed and forced the shut down of the park. Myers said he’ll leave it up to IDEM to determine whose role it is to deal with that. He said he is also waiting to hear whether a well in a wooded area on the property needs to be capped. With work finally occurring at Hidden Valley, Myers said it is the county’s hope that landowners of other eyesores in the county will take note that the county will push for order at those sites.

Barons top EN in 4 games BY JAMES FISHER

KENDALLVILLE — When teams that are evenly matched come together, the smallest mistakes are magnified. “We missed 15 serves, we gave them 15 points,” East Noble coach Nicki Ramey explained following Thursday’s loss to DeKalb in the opening game of Northeast Hoosier Conference volleyball for both teams. “It was a battle.” DeKalb came away with a 25-23, 22-25, 25-22, 25-13 victory over the Knights. “From our first game until now, we’re gradually getting better,” said DeKalb coach Andrea Spiess. “The whole team worked incredibly hard, we have people stepping up.” Hayley Martin and Hannah Lewis each had 18 kills for the Barons (7-2). “Teamwork, people worked hard to get them the ball,” Spiess said. Baron junior Hunter Daub dished out 35 assists, with 17 digs and two aces for Lexi Hooks. Kourtney Edwards led East Noble with 15 kills and three aces. Kavan Edwards had six kills and three blocks, with 14 digs for Jacey Cauhorn. Natalie Galviz had 13 assists, with 11 for Sydney Rodenbeck. Maddie Cook was 16-for-16 serving with seven digs and Claire

DeCamp had three blocks. The Knights (9-8) jumped out 4-1 in Game 1 on two kills by Kourtney Edwards, a Cook kill and Cauhorn ace. But the Barons quickly caught up to tie the game at 5-all and the contest would be tied six times before the Barons pulled out a 25-23 win. The last tie came at 23-23, with the Knights then following with a service error. DeKalb’s Maddy Fifer put the set away with a kill. “We talked about getting our energy up early and really bought into that,” Spiess explained. “We have great chemistry.” East Noble benefitted from a 5-0 spurt in the second set, where Kourtney Edwards had three aces. But the Barons got great play at the net from Martin and trailed just 22-21 in the late going. The Knights followed with a Kavan Edwards kill and tips from Cook and Kourtney Edwards to win 25-22. The Barons simply ruled the early going of the third set, jumping out 11-3 — the biggest margin either team had held to that point. East Noble rallied and cut the margin to 22-21 late in the match, but DeKalb got two kills from Hannah Lewis and an ace from Hooks to win 25-22. “They put us out of our system a lot, so we couldn’t run our

Prairie Heights freshman Joey Blakeley makes a run for the ball in the second half as Angola sophomore Cesar Cruz tries to keep up in defense during a first-round match of the Northeast Corner Conference Boys Soccer Tournament Thursday in Angola.

ANGOLA — Angola avenged an early season loss to Prairie Heights by defeating the Panthers 3-2 in a first-round match of the Northeast Corner Conference Boys Soccer Tournament. The Hornets (5-5) took a 3-0 lead in the first half and hung on. They played the final 1 minute, 16 seconds one man short after sophomore Rigoberto Romero got a red card for shoving a Panther player in retaliation. But Angola held firm. Panther Christian Granados scored just before halftime on a penalty kick. Senior classmate Spencer Lake scored to make it a one-goal match with 11:06 left. The Hornets stayed out of trouble the rest of the way. Angola lost at Prairie Heights 2-0 on Aug. 29. “We came out a little bit harder,” first-year Hornet coach Dusan Friga said. “We battled to win. Like I said before, we want to be ready at playoff time

and our true team will show.��� Senior leader Christopher Clemens scored two goals for AHS, and sophomore Jonathan Williams added a goal and an assist. Seniors Cameron Ridenour and Logan Powell each had an assist. Clemens missed the early part of the season recovering from a torn quad muscle and has been recently been battling a groin pull. Heights coach Craig Burkholder did not feel his team was barraged at the start, but said the Hornets were opportunistic. “They scored on a rebound and we had a couple of breakdowns for the other two goals,” Burkholder said. “It was a very physical game. I’m proud of our team for not retaliating.” Tyler Gingerich made 13 saves in goal for the Panthers. Heights (6-4-1) started 6-0-1, but have now lost four straight against the upper tier teams of the NECC. It will play

Lakeland in the first NECC Tournament consolation match Saturday at 10 a.m. at Hamilton. Angola will play small school state power West Noble in the first semifinal played at Westview today at 5 p.m. The Hornets lost to the Chargers 12-1 in Ligonier on Aug. 27. Angola played with only one sub against PH Thursday. Romero has to serve a one-game suspension today because of the red card. “We have a big challenge ahead of us,” Friga said. “I’m confident my team will turn heads.” Girls Semifinal Angola 2, Lakeland 1 At Angola, the Hornets (4-7) avenged an early-season loss to the Lakers and will play Westview in the NECC girls tournament championship match Saturday afternoon at Emma. Exchange student Sara Joergensen scored two goals not too far apart in the second half to give Angola a 2-0 lead. Katie Levitz tallied for Lakeland.

Chargers advance past Lakers Stenson Macias scores leads at another 3 goals East Lake LIGONIER — West Noble advanced to the semifinals of the Northeast Corner Conference boys soccer tournament with a 5-3 win over Lakeland in a match played Thursday on a wet field at the West Noble schools campus in Ligonier. West Noble plays Angola tonight. That match is set for 5 p.m. at Westview. Senior Uriel Macias proved why he is the conference’s leading all-time scorer by putting three goals in the net for West Noble. Ricardo Resendiz and Ivan Ramirez scored the other two goals for the Chargers. West Noble, 6-2-1, scored twice in the first half and three times in the second. Credited with assists for West Noble were Abel Zamarrripa, Chris Najera and Uriel A. Macias. Goalie Jonathan Moreno had 10 saves for West Noble.

ATLANTA (AP) — Henrik Stenson changed his attitude and chose a different target at the Tour Championship. Instead of smashing a driver and a locker, he demolished the front nine at East Lake on Thursday with a five birdies over a six-hole stretch that carried him to a 6-under 64 and a one-shot lead over Masters champion Adam Scott. It was a big turnaround from Monday at Conway Farms, not only on his scorecard but between the ears. “I just needed to realize the world is a good place again,” Stenson said. Stenson was playing his seventh tournament in 10 weeks when the BMW Championship was extended a day by rain. He slammed his driver so hard into the ground on the final hole that the head snapped off, and then he took out his frustrations on his wooden locker at Conway Farms. Playing all 18 holes at East Lake for the first time, it looked like he SEE PGA TOUR, PAGE B2




Blazers beat Marines on PKs Area’s top football teams emerging


HAMILTON — It didn’t come by the easy route, but Eastside’s soccer team tasted its first victory, 2-1 by penalty kicks, over the Hamilton Marines in Northeast Corner Conference tournament action at Hamilton Thursday. The Blazers (1-9) will play Westview at Emma at 7 p.m. tonight. West Noble plays Angola in the first game at 5 p.m., also at Westview. The Marines and Blazers played to a 1-1 tie through regulation and two seven-minute overtime periods. In the shootout, Hamilton quickly gained a 2-0 advantage as Casey Rote and Daine Johnson beat Blazer goalie Zach Yoder, while Eastside’s first two shooters, Colton Hein and Brock Honn, each shot the ball over the net. The penalty kick try by Hamilton’s Aaron Kelley also sailed over the net, and Jared Yoder scored to keep Eastside’s hopes alive. The Marines’ next shooter, Baylee Fifer, drilled one off the crossbar, while Eastside’s Kyle Franz buried his shot in the top left corner. The only save of the shootout came when Zach Yoder stuffed Reed Steffen, Hamilton’s fifth shooter. Eastside’s fifth shooter, Dylan Kaiser, found the back of the net on the left side to end it.

“Talk about a nail-biter to the end,” Eastside coach Tom Utnage said. “It’s a great way to get our first victory, in the conference tournament, going into penalty kicks, a spirited game and the rivalry between Hamilton and Eastside. “I wouldn’t have this any other way for our first victory,” he said. The teams played through a scoreless, rain-soaked first-half, and a scoreless, dry second half. With 3:23 left in the first overtime period, Hamilton’s Steffen scored on a penalty kick when Rote was tackled in the box. Because overtime soccer isn’t sudden-death, the

visitors still had a chance. Eastside, which had just a handful of shots on goal in the match, made the most of that chance when Jared Yoder beat Hamilton goalie Hunter Schiffli on a breakaway just 1:10 later. The teams traded ends for the second overtime period, but there would be no more scoring until the shootout. The loss was a tough one for the Marines (2-8-1), who beat Eastside 4-3 on Aug. 27. Thursday, they hit a post in the first half, in overtime and off the crossbar in the shootout. Other close chances bounced just wide or over the goal.

“We should have won it in the first half,” said a frustrated Hamilton coach Johnny Fugate. “We out-shot them 22-7 for the match, but we couldn’t finish. We just have to be able to finish.” Hamilton will host Central Noble at 10 a.m. Saturday in a consolation match. “The kids (displayed) so much grit, so much effort, so much tenacity going after that ball. I don’t think any of our kids have played a double-overtime type of game as physical as this,” Utnage said. “They’ll be exhausted (Friday), but they’re going home proud tonight.”

The following boys tennis duals were postponed, based on reports by area schools: East Noble at Norwell, Angola at Churubusco, Fremont at Lakeland. Westview at Fairfield, and Jimtown at West Noble. The Westview-Fairfield dual will be played on Saturday and varsity only. The Angola-Churubusco and Fremont-Lakeland duals will be made up on Monday.

birdie. “I really knew I had to be in a good frame of mind coming out there if I wanted to play good golf this week,”


he said. “As some of you noticed, I wasn’t that on Monday when I finished up in Chicago. So it was a good turnaround mentally.

I stayed very level-headed — kept the head on, both myself and drivers, and played a great round of golf.”

The cream is starting to rise to the top. Lakeland and Churubusco seem to spend their seasons building up for the clash at the end that more often than not decides who carries the banner in the NECC. The Lakers have dismantled Prairie Heights (27-12), Fremont (48-13), Central PICKIN’ Noble THE PREPS (51-14) and Angola (31-0). Hannah Holstein Churubusco has dominated in wins over Fremont (56-0), Central Noble (42-6), Prairie Heights (34-0) and Eastside (31-13). Lakeland and Churubusco meet in the final regular season game on Oct. 18 in LaGrange. Garrett is off to a 3-1 start and opened its ACAC season with a 14-10 victory over Adams Central a week ago.

Massi leaving Trine for Tiffin BY KEN FILLMORE

ANGOLA — Trine University men’s cross country and track and field head coach Charlie Massi announced on Thursday that he will be leaving the Angola school to take an assistant coaching position with the cross country and track & field programs at NCAA Division II Tiffin University in Tiffin, Ohio. Massi will be the head recruiting coordinator in his return to Northeast Ohio. He was an assistant track and cross country coach at Tiffin for two years prior to coming to Trine in the fall of 2011. The former middle distance standout at Division II Ashland (Ohio) University also earned his master’s degree in business administration. Massi let Trine officials know that he is moving on last Friday. His last day of work at Trine is next Friday. He begins work at Tiffin on Sept. 30. He said Trine is in the process of hiring his replacement. Massi called his job at Tiffin a promotion that was too good to pass up. He was born and raised in the Cleveland area. Both Dragon track teams are among the top teams in the

Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. “It’s a great opportunity closer to home to build championship teams,” Massi said. “It’s never a good time in the middle of the season.” Massi appreciated his first experience as a collegiate head coach at Trine. His recruiting prowess showed. There were 49 student-athletes in the track and cross country programs for both the men and women. Massi added to it by bringing in 41 student-athletes in his first year of recruiting. Seventy more new recruits joined the Thunder when school started last month. Trine’s top men’s cross country runner Austin Ganger, a freshman from Mishawaka, initially committed to NCAA Division I IUPUI. “Overall, the experience was beneficial to start building a tradition,” Massi said. “We started to develop a nucleus of team. The coaching staff was on the same page. Goalsetting was a major key. Everybody respected it and bought into the system and the training. “I look forward to upcoming seasons for Trine. A lot of great things are going to happen.”

offense all the time,” Ramey said. “They also served very well.” Game 4 was tied four times until the Barons came through with a 4-0 spurt capped by an ace by Fifer. Three kills by Martin would later highlight a 5-0 run in the late going as the Barons won 25-13 to wrap up the contest. “We know East Noble

always plays tough,” Spiess said. “It’s always a battle between us.” The Knights won the freshman and junior varsity games. Jill Marlowe had nine digs for the Baron JV team, with 10 assists for Hayley Ring and four kills for Jade Bollett. Amanda Shonka and Mackenzie Snider had seven digs for the freshman team, with six aces for Carolyn Vadney.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Dodgers clinch NL West title PHOENIX (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers soaked everyone in sight with champagne in the clubhouse. Many players raced back out for a celebratory dip in Arizona’s Chase Field swimming pool. From last place to an NL West title in less than three months, they sure let loose. Burdened by high expectations and a horrible start, the Dodgers relieved their pent-up pressure with a joyful celebration after becoming the first team this year to clinch a playoff spot. Hanley Ramirez homered twice as they rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 on Thursday. “I want to keep going,” Ramirez said. “I think that we’ve got a couple of more steps to do. We’ve got to keep working and stay together all the way through to the end.” Ramirez was back in the lineup after being sidelined five of six games with an irritated nerve in his lower back. He’s played 1,090 regular-season games but will be making his first trip to the postseason. Only three active players have played more games without making the playoffs. Despite an NL-high payroll of $214 million-plus on opening day, the Dodgers got off to an 30-42 start and were last in the division, 9½ games behind the first-place Diamondbacks, before play on June 22. Los Angeles has gone 58-23 since, including an unreal 42-8 run that coincided mostly with dynamic Cuban defector Yasiel Puig’s callup to the major leagues. “I’m a guy that doesn’t show a lot of emotion,” manager Don Mattingly said. “I really try to keep it kind of even. But this is a great accomplishment for these guys. We put a great team together and a big payroll with huge expectations. A lot of time that falls apart and it had a chance to fall apart during the season, I thought. “But the coaching staff stuck together. These guys were loyal to me. There was no backbiting or somebody trying to leap over me. They stuck together. … The players came together, we got healthy, and then we just rolled.” The Dodgers trailed 6-3 in the sixth and A.J. Ellis hit a tiebreaking homer off Josh Collmenter (4-4) leading off the eighth. J.P. Howell (2-1) got two outs for the victory. Kenley Jansen struck two in the ninth for his 26th save.

Browns pick up McGahee BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The Browns have signed free agent running back Willis McGahee, giving them a capable veteran after trading Trent Richardson. McGahee, who spent last season with Denver, passed his physical Thursday as the Browns were practicing. He brings experience after the Browns dealt Richardson to Indianapolis on Wednesday. It’s not yet known if McGahee will play Sunday when the Browns visit Minnesota. McGahee, 31, worked out for the New York Giants last week, but the team elected not to sign him. A two-time Pro Bowl selection, McGahee led the Broncos with 731 rushing yards last season. He’s been a remarkably durable back during his 9-year NFL career despite suffering a serious knee injury in his final game in college at Miami.

Mayweather fight richest ever LAS VEGAS (AP) — Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s dominating win over Canelo Alvarez was the richest fight ever, a box-office smash at the arena and on television. Showtime said Thursday that at least 2.2 million homes bought the pay-perview for the bout, second only to the 2.44 million homes in Mayweather’s 2007 fight against Oscar De La Hoya. With the highest pay-per-view boxing price — at an average of more than $70 — the fight will generate nearly $150 million in revenue in TV sales alone. Nevada boxing regulators say the gate for the bout was just more than $20 million, also a record. A total of 16,146 seats were sold for the event at an average price of almost $1,240 per ticket. Promoter Richard Schaefer said total revenues would approach $200 million upon final count, surpassing the $165 million generated by the Mayweather-De La Hoya fight. “You sort of reach for the stars but you don’t always catch them,” Schaefer said. “I was reaching for the stars but the way this fight caught fire surprised everyone.” Mayweather earned a guaranteed $41.5 million for the fight, while Alvarez was guaranteed $5 million. Both will make more based on a percentage of the pay-perview revenue.

Revis has no issues with coach TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Darrelle Revis has plenty of reasons to get along with Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, including a hefty contract that makes him the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. So, the three-time All-Pro took it upon himself to meet with Schiano this week to stress there’s “zero truth” to talk that he has a problem with the way the Bucs are using him in a revamped defense that’s struggled to stop opponents late in games. Revis made a name for himself as a shutdown cornerback in six seasons with the New York Jets, routinely holding some of the league’s top receivers in check while discouraging quarterbacks from even attempting to throw to his side of the field. Revis, who sat out the preseason while recovering from knee surgery that sidelined him most of last season, said he’s OK with what he’s been asked to do. The Bucs obtained Revis in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this year’s draft.





Dad’s fooling around taking toll on mom DEAR ABBY: My father admitted to having an affair a few years ago. At the time, my mother was very upset and threatened to leave, but somehow they worked it out. However, he is still seeing this woman. They talk on the phone for hours, and he visits her house frequently, leaving my mother alone for extended periods of time. When I ask my mother why they are still in contact, she doesn’t want to talk about it, and my father seems to think he isn’t doing anything wrong. Normally I wouldn’t get involved, but I’m worried about my mother’s health, which wasn’t quite great to begin with and has gone downhill since this all started. Is there anything I can do in this situation? — WORRIED ABOUT MOM DEAR WORRIED: It appears your parents made a deal with each other — he would live his own life and




DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together for 13 years. We live in the country with livestock. I was taught to remove my shoes when I entered my house, especially since I was raised on a farm. My husband wasn’t required to do the same as he was growing up.

Jeanne Phillips

I have asked him for the last 10 years to kindly take his shoes off when he comes in so he won’t track dirt, mud, manure, etc. into the house. He absolutely REFUSES. I have explained my reasons repeatedly and told him it hurts my feelings and makes me feel disrespected. — TIRED OF WALKING ON POOP DEAR TIRED: I don’t think so. Your reasons for wanting his dirty shoes off seem sensible to me. From where I sit, it appears your husband cares little for your feelings, isn’t concerned about any extra work he creates and stopped listening to you 10 years ago. You have my sympathy. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 6:00

On this date: • In 1873, panic swept the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in the wake of railroad bond defaults and bank failures. • In 1958, Martin Luther King Jr. was wounded during a book signing in New York City when Izola Curry stabbed him in the chest. • In 1973, in their so-called battle of the sexes, tennis star Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.


Science uncovering the way we remember Stage 1: Acquisition. When you learn new information, it first takes the form of temporary pathways of nerve cell activity in the brain. This is short-term memory. Most of this information quickly fades. The memories that endure are those ASK that were DOCTOR K. encoded most completely in the first — the Dr. Anthony place information you paid Komaroff that the closest attention to when you learned it. Memories that involve multiple senses as well as emotions are more likely to be retained. You probably remember

clearly what you were doing when you heard about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, for example. You probably remember who else was with you, where you were, the first picture you saw of the twin towers. That’s because the emotional charge of learning that our country had been attacked caused you to store everything about that moment in your memory. But you probably have no idea what you were doing exactly 24 hours before and 24 hours after you heard about the 9/11 attacks. Stage 2: Consolidation. For short-term memory to become long-term memory, the initial neuronal pathways must be strengthened. When an event is emotionally charged, it is more likely to become part of long-term memory. Once a memory is established (consolidated), it is stored in areas of the cerebral cortex. That’s the large, domed outer layer of the brain.

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: How do our brains create memories? Are our memories stored in some sort of “memory bank”? DEAR READER: A memory is not a single entity, like a book on a shelf. It is more like a cloth that weaves together multiple facets of sensory, emotional and factual information. Different areas of the brain process and store different aspects of a memory. For example, when you learned a song — “The Star-Spangled Banner,” say — you stored the words in a different region of your brain from where you stored the song’s melody. If you associate “The Star-Spangled Banner” with an image of the American flag, that memory might be stored in the visual processing area of the brain. Your memories are thus intricately broken down and cross-referenced. But how does the information you encounter get filed away?

they would remain married. Because it is affecting your mother’s health, suggest that she discuss this with her physician. If she agrees, it could help her physically and emotionally because stress and depression have been DEAR known to people ABBY make sick.

Stage 3: Retrieval. Memories are stored in the brain as unique patterns of nerve cell activation. When you’re not thinking about a memory, the pattern is inactive. When you want to recall a memory, your brain must reactivate the pattern. How long this takes depends on how familiar you are with the information you’re looking for. Knowledge about the different types of memory, and where in the brain they are housed, has come from research. The next frontier is learning how memories are stored. What brain chemicals are involved in receiving, consolidating and retrieving a memory? In the past 30 years, and particularly in the past 10 years, brain scientists have begun to understand that mystery. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.
