Paternity pursuit GOOD MORNING


There’s a legal right in Indiana most people don’t think about, one that applies to even the youngest of Hoosiers: the right to know who your father is. It’s the job of county prosecutors’ offices in Indiana to work to determine paternity. That determination can have many repercussions. “The state has an interest in making sure children are cared for,” said Noble County Prosecutor Steven T. Clouse. The prosecutor represents the state’s interest, so it falls on that office to investigate such cases.

Indiana farm working to fix noisy turbine WINCHESTER, Ind. (AP) — The operators of a central Indiana wind farm are working to correct problems with a wind turbine that’s prompted nearby residents to complain about an irritating noise. E.ON Climate & Renewables project manager Andy Melka says one of Wildcat Wind Farm’s turbines is creating the noise because it’s unable to properly face into the direction of the wind. He tells the Kokomo Tribune the turbine’s noise level was 51.6 decibels, putting it above the 50-decibel noise limit. Melka says crews will make a permanent fix to the turbine in the near future and they may lower the speed of the rotor as the wind speed exceeds a certain level. He says the company is also fielding complaints about the loss of broadcast television reception around the wind farm.


Prosecutors seek dads’ identities

“The prosecutors are the enforcement arm that requires, in most cases, fathers to pay for their children,” said LaGrange County Prosecutor Jeffrey Wible. Paternity testing is mandated by the federal government, said Steuben County deputy prosecutor Nicholas Wallace, who works with the county’s Title IV-D child support office. The Title IV-D section of the prosecutor’s office oversees paternity cases in each county. Societal changes are the chief reason the number of paternity cases is increasing, said DeKalb County deputy prosecutor Kelly Morris, who works with the

county’s Title IV-D child support office. “We have a lot of people who just don’t get married” when they have children, Morris said. A man is presumed to be a child’s legal father if he and his wife were married when the child was born or it was born no later than 300 days after the marriage ended, according to information from the Indiana Department of Child Services. If the child is born out of wedlock, then the matter becomes one of determining who the father is, Wible said. That determination is important, Clouse said. A legal

Slain officer’s heroism a balm to co-workers INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Officers mourning an Indianapolis police officer slain while coming to the aid of a screaming woman who’d been held at gunpoint for hours are taking comfort in knowing he died during a selfless and heroic act, a police spokesman said Saturday. Officer Rod Bradway, who died early Friday, kicked open the front door of an apartment in response to screams for help by a woman whose ex-boyfriend had held her inside at gunpoint for three hours. The woman and her young child were unharmed in the chaos that followed, but 24-year-old Steven Byrdo was hiding behind the apartment door and allegedly ambushed and fatally shot Bradway about 2 a.m. Friday, police said. Bradway, a 41-year-old father of two teenagers, died later at an Indianapolis hospital.

father has both rights and responsibilities for a child. Most commonly, the responsibilities translate as child support, Wible said. Indiana law provides two means to determine paternity, Morris said. One is a paternity affidavit. The other is a court order. A paternity affidavit is a legal document in which a man and woman jointly declare that he is the father of her child, Morris said. It can be completed at the hospital within 72 hours of the birth or at the local health department. The court-order option enters

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Terrified shoppers huddled in back hallways and prayed they would not be found by the Islamic extremist gunmen lobbing grenades and firing assault rifles inside Nairobi’s top mall Saturday. When the way appeared clear, crying mothers clutching small children and blood-splattered men sprinted out of the four-story mall. At least 39 people were killed and more than 150 wounded in the assault, Kenya’s president announced on national TV, while disclosing that his close family members were among the dead. Foreigners were among the casualties. France’s president said that two French women were killed. Two Canadians were killed, including a diplomat, said the Candadian prime minister. Four American citizens were reported injured but not killed in the attack, the State Department said Saturday. Early Sunday morning, 12 hours after the attack began, gunmen remained holed up inside the mall with an unknown number of hostages. President Uhuru Kenyatta called the security operation under way “delicate” and said a top priority was to safeguard hostages. As the attack began shortly after noon Saturday, the al-Qaida-linked gunmen asked the victims they had cornered if they were Muslim: Those who answered yes were free to go, several witnesses said. The non-Muslims were not. SEE ATTACK, PAGE A8

LAOTTO — A family seeking to develop an 1800s-era craft village on its property in LaOtto has decided to slow the pace of its plans. Doug and Kim Jennings announced plans earlier this summer to create the village, which as planned calls for 14 shops, each of 800 to 1,000 square feet, on their land at 11330 East C.R. 500S. The village would be constructed in conjunction with three bed-and-breakfast inns. A request to rezone the property from A1 Agricultural to

VM Village Mix was withdrawn Aug. 26 before it could be considered by the Noble County commissioners. Had the county commissioners nixed the rezoning at their Aug. 26 meeting, the Jenningses would have had to wait a year before filing another request. Now, Doug Jennings said, the plan is to seek variances for a small number of shops in the spring of 2014, a gradual approach he said he hoped would show how unintrusive the operation will be to the surrounding area. The matter eventually will come before SEE DEVELOPMENT, PAGE A8

Steuben soldiers’ letters record Civil War BY JENNIFER DECKER

ANGOLA — In Civil War letters Peg Dilbone has collected from Steuben County soldiers, many are poignantly written and detailed in recording one of the nation’s bloodiest battles. Dilbone, Steuben County historian, said those soldiers from the county played a huge part in the Civil War. “A lot of Steuben County boys fought in the battle and from the 29th Regiment,� she said. “Boys who wrote home were very precise. You can tell their emotions.� Reportedly, Steuben County had the most soldiers per ratio of population who fought in the Civil War, she said. Dilbone researched the Civil War and Steuben County-related involvement because the Skirmish of Chickamauga will be re-enacted in Commons Park as part of Angola’s annual Civil War Days. Several actors will participate from throughout the Midwest as different characters. “In 1861, a variety of soldiers wrote letters home and were published in ‘The Steuben Republican,’� she said. “It described the battle they were reporting home with other men in the battle.� “The Steuben Republican� merged with several other newspapers and changed ownership before becoming what is The Herald Republican today. Dilbone noted such

letters was the major mode of mass communication. Many were shared and passed around. Often times, the names of casualties were listed in the letters. “Your newspaper office was the center of town,â€? Dilbone said. She explained oftentimes, the newspaper was how many received word of loves ones. Some part of those letters follow: • “Those who sent into the battle of Chickamauga have with with their company since organizing or since they entered as recruits and there was no discount of them. I have seen them fight in six battles besides the innumerable skirmishes in which we have been engaged and I know their mettle.â€? — Lt. R. W. Melendy, 29th Regiment Indiana; Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 8, 1863. • “Lt. Bodly from Co. D, although from Steuben County, was mortally wounded in the breast on Saturday morning and died on Sunday. I hardly know how to replace his loss, as we were the best of friends and constantly together. When I look back a few days since to think what a change has taken place in our own company, the tears start from my eyes and I can find no words to express my feelings.â€? — Capt. Lawrence Gates, 74th Infantry Regiment Indiana; “Steuben Republican,â€? Oct. 10, 1863. Dilbone said Gates came to the United States from Germany knowing no English. He joined the

After the war, he became a successful Angola businessman. • “I wish to state to you and my evidence to courage braver, fidelity and zeal of the brave and noble youths, the representatives of gallant Steuben that I have had the honor to command.â€? — Capt. J.H.M. Jenkins, 29th Regiment Indiana; Chattanooga, Tenn., Oct. 6, 1863. Dilbone will display her letters at Angola’s Civil War Days, which will be held next weekend. The event is part of the Autumn in Angola Fall Festival.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A former Indianapolis businessman who prosecutors say masterminded a Ponzi scheme that defrauded investors in an Ohio company of $200 million says jurors at his trial last year should not have heard wiretapped conversations. The Indianapolis Business Journal reports attorneys for Tim Durham and his two co-defendants, Jim Cochran and Rick Snow, filed a 92-page brief with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago seeking to overturn their convictions in the scheme at Akron, Ohio-based Fair Finance Co. The brief says investigators should not have been allowed to conduct wiretaps without first demonstrating that “ordinary investigative techniques failed or were unlikely to succeed.� The wiretaps captured Durham and Cochran discussing ways to keep Fair Finance afloat and raise more money from investors in the weeks before the FBI raided its offices in November 2009. More than 5,000 Ohio residents purchased unsecured investment certificates from Fair Finance touting interest rates as high as 9 percent. Prosecutors say Durham used that money to prop

up other failing businesses and finance a lavish lifestyle that included a 30,000-square-foot Indiana estate, a yacht, private jets and classic cars. The wiretaps caught Durham discussing ways to recast Fair’s financial statements so that Ohio securities regulators might allow the company to sell additional certificates. One approach, Durham said, would make $28 million in bad loans “just vanish.�

Hospital opens public fund drive ANGOLA — Cameron Hospital Foundation kicked off its public capital campaign for construction of a new Cameron Memorial Community Hospital on Wednesday. Although the Campaign for Cameron drive had not gone public until Wednesday, it had already received nearly $1 million in announced gifts and pledges. A new, $47 million hospital is currently under construction adjacent to the existing Cameron campus in downtown Angola. The hospital is expected to open in August 2014 with completion — which includes razing part of the existing facility and final site work — in September 2015. “Today is the kickoff for the broader community,” said Greg Burns, Cameron’s president and CEO. The new hospital is being financed by a $37 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, with another $10 million guaranteed by the USDA and provided by Farmers and Merchants State Bank. The new hospital will end up being 126,400 square feet. Of that, 110,470 is new space and 15,930 will be renovated space.

Site selector likes what he sees in area 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 Center west of Kendallville.

Four schools districts exceed test averages INDIANAPOLIS — ISTEP+ test scores at four local school districts exceeded state averages in results released Wednesday by the Indiana Department of Education. In overall passing rates for grades 3-8 combined, Fremont, Westview, DeKalb Central and Metropolitan School District of Steuben County ranked above the state averages. Statewide, 73.5 percent of students passed both the language arts and mathematics portions of the state tests. Local districts above that rate were Fremont at 76.6 percent, Westview at 76.5, DeKalb Central at 76.2 and MSD Steuben at 74.9. On individual portions of the test, DeKalb Eastern and Prairie Heights students passed the math portion of the test at a higher rate than the state average. Hamilton students topped the state average on the English portion of the test.

Bishop blesses new assisted living facility AVILLA — The bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend visited Friday to bless a new assisted living facility in Avilla, located in a longtime senior citizen apartment complex. The Most Rev. Kevin C. Rhoades, bishop of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, blessed the new Presence LaVerna Terrace Assisted Living apartments, including all in attendance and all thresholds in the building, during a half-hour ceremony with scripture readings, prayers and singing. At the same ceremony, Elaine Shank was introduced as the new administrator of Presence LaVerna Terrace. The event celebrated a double transition for the building, explained Craig Procupek, administrator of Presence Sacred Heart Home, which has been operating LaVerna Terrace. Both are part of Presence Health, a Catholic health provider.

Stock market soars to record high NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market hit a record high Wednesday as investors cheered the Federal Reserve’s surprise decision to keep its economic stimulus program in place. Stocks traded slightly lower throughout the morning, but took off immediately after the Fed’s decision in the early afternoon. Bond yields fell sharply — their biggest move in nearly two years. The price of gold had its biggest one-day jump in four years as traders anticipated that the Fed’s decision might cause inflation. Fed policymakers decided to maintain the central bank’s $85 billion in monthly bond buying, a program that had been in place in one form or another since late 2008. The buying is designed to keep interest rates low to spur economic growth, and has fueled a four-and-a-half-year bull run in stocks. While the U.S. economy appeared to be improving, the bank’s policymakers “decided to await more evidence that progress will be sustained” before deciding to slow bond purchases. The bank also cut its full-year economic outlook for this year and the next.


E-cigarettes have spiked in popularity, but there’s been little movement to restrict where they can be used BY LINDA LIPP

Where there is no fire, there is no smoke. So electronic cigarettes, which use vapor to deliver nicotine to users — or vapers, as they are called — typically are not covered by state and local smoking laws. The same thing appears to be true of many company policies, which have not been updated to address e-cigarettes even though they have been around for the better part of a decade. And therein lies one of the secrets to the skyrocketing popularity of

the devices. About 50 percent of the customers who buy electronic cigarette kits and supplies are using them to try to step off smoking traditional cigarettes, estimated Frank Boyer of Riegel’s Pipe and Tobacco shops. The other 50 percent are using them instead of cigarettes in places where traditional smoking materials are not permitted. Indiana’s no-smoking law, enacted in 2012, does not address electronic cigarettes. Neither does Fort Wayne’s earlier, tougher ordinance, nor the Allen County rule that covers

unincorporated areas. The Federal Drug Administration hasn’t really issued any rulings on electronic cigarettes, noted Dr. John Crawford, a Fort Wayne city councilman and architect of the city’s smoking ordinance. And while some cities across the country are debating whether to amend ordinances to include e-cigarettes — Duluth, Minn., hopes its new ban will become a model for others to follow — Crawford doesn’t think Fort Wayne should follow suit. In terms of health and safety, “there’s no question (e-cigarettes) are 1,000 times better,” Crawford said. E-cigarettes deliver nicotine without the carcinogens contained in cigarette smoke. “The

things that are dangerous in that smoke is not the nicotine,” he said. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported earlier this year that the number of smokers who had tried e-cigarettes had more than doubled from 10 percent in 2010 to 21 percent in 2011. Revenue from e-cigarette sales is expected to top $1 billion and may rise as high as $1.7 billion this year, according to a September article in Forbes magazine. Big tobacco is getting into the business, and an analyst who covers the industry recently predicted that revenue from e-cigarette sales will exceed revenue from sales of traditional smoking products for tobacco giant Reynolds American within eight years.

Tunnel could reduce sewage overflows FORT WAYNE (AP) — Officials in Fort Wayne are working on plans for a seven-mile tunnel aimed at reducing the amount of raw sewage reaching the city’s rivers during heavy rains. Preliminary plans for the project call for the tunnel to be drilled through the bedrock about 150 feet below ground. Once built, the tunnel would hold water from the city’s combined storm and sanitary sewers after storms until it can be treated. The tunnel is estimated to cost about $150 million and would be the biggest part of the city’s Environmental Protection Agency-mandated project to reduce the sewage releases. The full project includes the elimination of some combined sewers and has been estimated to cost some $250 million.

U.N. may produce some action on Syria and Iran

In this July 16, file photo, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton speaks in Washington. A vote for war can make or break a White House hopeful. The politically fraught decision weighs on potential 2016 Republican candidates

Clinton keeps up with base CHICAGO (AP) — Whether she runs for president or not in 2016, Hillary Rodham Clinton is making sure she stays connected to important Democratic constituencies, from college students and black women to the gay and lesbian community. Clinton has spoken to a women’s institute in Pennsylvania, a prominent black women’s sorority in the nation’s capital, the American Jewish University in Los Angeles and an organization called Chicago House that helps people with HIV and AIDS. Her fall itinerary includes speeches before college students at three universities

in New York, which she represented in the Senate, an award from the Elton John AIDS Foundation, a speech at a Minneapolis synagogue and an event involving a Mexican-American initiative at the University of Southern California. For all the talk that the former secretary of state intended to slow down after two decades in national political life, Clinton is keeping a busy schedule that amounts to a training camp for a second presidential campaign, if there is one. In many of her speeches, Clinton talks about America’s role in the world and weighs in on national issues on her own terms.

Her words often seem to be aimed at maintaining a connection to the party’s base of women, black and Hispanic voters, young people and gays and lesbians. While her speeches avoid partisan politics, they put her before admiring audiences that relish the notion of a woman leading the country. “We broke the great race barrier with President Obama but it’s time that we also really ask ourselves deep down what it’s going to take to elect a woman president,� Clinton said Thursday in response to a question during a Miami address to travel agents.

Attacks kill at least 96 in Iraq BAGHDAD (AP) — Two suicide bombers, one in an explosives-laden car and the other on foot, struck a cluster of funeral tents packed with mourning families in a Shiite neighborhood in Baghdad, the deadliest in a string of attacks around Iraq that killed at least 96 people on Saturday. The assaults, the latest in a months-long surge of violence, are a chilling reminder of insurgents’ determination to re-ignite sectarian conflict more than a decade after the U.S.-led invasion. Thousands of Iraqis

have been killed in violent attacks in recent months — a level of bloodshed not seen since Iraq pulled back from the brink of civil war in 2008 — despite appeals for restraint from Shiite and Sunni political leaders. The attack on the funeral was one of the largest single terrorist assaults on civilians in Iraq in recent years. It happened shortly before sunset in the densely populated Shiite neighborhood of Sadr City in northeastern Baghdad. Police said at least 72 people were killed and more than 120 were wounded in that attack.

One bomber was able to drive up near the tent before detonating his deadly payload, and another on foot blew himself up nearby, police said. The explosions set the tents and several nearby cars on fire, sending a towering plume of thick black smoke over the city. “I saw several charred bodies on the ground and tents on fire and also burning cars. Wounded people were screaming in pain,� said Sheik Sattar al-Fartousi, one of the mourners. “The scene was horrible. The funeral turned into an inferno.�

WASHINGTON (AP) — After years of estrangement, the United States and Russia are joined as partners in a bold plan to rid Syria of chemical weapons. More surprising yet, American and Iranian leaders — after an exchange of courteous letters — may meet in New York for the first time since the Islamic revolution swept Iran nearly 35 years ago. Hopes are unusually high as world leaders gather at the United Nations this week. While the results are far from certain, all players in the delicate diplomacy confronting them in the coming days could even come out winners in a world increasingly fraught with zero-sum outcomes. It begins with the U.N. Security Council scrambling to put together a resolution that is sweeping enough to ensure that Syrian President Bashar Assad surrenders all his chemical arms, and with sufficient penalties to discourage him from reneging. The five permanent members of the Security Council — the U.S., Russia, China, Britain and France — all hold veto power, and Russia has not shied from blocking a council resolution that would punish Syrian behavior in the civil war. The Russians were especially vigorous in promising to veto air strikes to punish Syria for the Aug. 21 chemical attack that killed hundreds of people in a Damascus suburb. The U.S. blames Assad’s regime

for the attack; Russia says there is no proof that the regime was responsible and suggests it may have been the rebels who carried it out. Lacking U.N. approval, U.S. President Barack Obama — who had warned last year that Assad’s use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line� — was nevertheless about to wage a limited air offensive against Syria but pulled up short and sought U.S. congressional approval. It then quickly became clear that Obama would not get that backing, with polls showing the American public solidly against any further military involvement in the Middle East. At that point, Russian President Vladimir Putin stepped in and strong-armed Assad into agreeing to turn over his chemical arsenal to international control and destruction. Obama, faced with the prospect of attacking Syria against the will of both the U.S. Congress and the U.N. Security Council, jumped to accept the Russian gambit. “Putin has put himself on the line. This was not done lightly. This was not done to embarrass Obama,� said Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus at New York University. “This was done for what Putin and (Foreign Minister Sergey) Lavrov think is Russia’s national interest.�



Klugman’s son miffed at Emmys LOS ANGELES (AP) — The exclusion of Jack Klugman from an Emmy Awards tribute that includes Cory Monteith is an insult to the memory of the late TV veteran and three-time Emmy winner who starred in “The Odd Couple� and “Quincy M.E.,� Klugman’s son says. “I think it’s criminal,� said Adam Klugman in an interview with The Associated Press. “My dad was at the inception of television and helped build it in the early days.� Ceremony producers announced this week that five individual salutes would be included on Sunday night’s Emmy show in addition to the traditional “in memoriam� segment that groups together industry members who died in the past year. Besides Monteith, the “Glee� star who died in July of a heroin and drug overdose, those to be honored include “The Sopranos� star James Gandolfini; Jean Stapleton of “All in the Family�; comedian and actor Jonathan Winters; and “Family Ties� producer Gary David Goldberg. Monteith, who was 31 when he died, is by far the youngest of the group. All the others are Emmy winners, while he had yet to be nominated in his abbreviated career.

James Collins, of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and a former U.S. ambassador to Moscow, offered a similar assessment. “Putin has put his neck way out in terms of responsibility for seeing this happen,� he said. “If the Americans can resist the idea they have to micromanage everything and have it done only our way,� the Russians will force Assad to rid himself of chemical weapons. Washington contends that the Russians jumped in with their plan only after Obama pushed military action, a threat the American leader says will remain on the table regardless of the outcome at the United Nations. As a result, Obama will probably not insist that the coming U.N. resolution on Syrian chemical disarmament include such a threat should Assad fail to live up to the deal. The Russians would balk at anything stiffer than sanctions anyway. And it will be impossible to deal with Syria without at least acknowledging Iranian interests. Tehran has big stakes in backing Assad, who rules Syria as a member of the minority Alawite sect that has close ties to the Shiite Islam of Iran’s ruling clergy. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and Lebanese Hezbollah fighters are helping Syrian government troops in their war against a diverse group of rebels, who appear increasingly dominated by al-Qaidalinked jihadists.

Food winners and losers

A study that links sports losses with eating more fat and “comfort food” shows that winning can lead to healthier choices. In the days following a sports victory, fans choose to eat lighter food, and in moderation, according to a report released last week. Maybe that has implications for people enduring the stresses associated with poverty. Researchers from INSEAD, a business school in France, found that after a defeat fans increased their saturated fat consumption by 16 percent, while after a victory it decreased by 9 percent. Overall calorie consumption went up by 10 percent after losses, and down by 5 percent after wins. Pierre Chandon, a professor of marketing at INSEAD, said when a person’s team is losing people want “comfort food … unhealthy food” because, “When your ego is shattered you really think about instant gratification – you want to feel better now.” What about food choices by people with low ego due to poverty, homelessness or loss of a job? The researchers found that winning seems to make people think long-term. The satisfaction of winning increases the capacity of people to withstand difficult choices – to pick the salad over the fries, for example. For Hoosiers, the past decade saw significant declines in wages and increases in poverty that often surpassed the nation as a whole and our neighboring states. In 2012 15.6 percent of all Hoosiers lived in poverty. For Hoosier children under age 5 the number was 27.2 percent. Since the beginning of the recession, there has been a significant decrease in median household income in Indiana. In 2012 it was $46,974, down from $50,964 in 2008. As we have emphasized in past editorials, an increase in the Earned Income Tax Credit could strengthen our economy. Indiana’s EITC at 9 percent of the federal benefit is now modest compared to most other state EITC’s. Indiana is one of 15 states that tax the incomes of families in poverty. In addition we must increase access to education and training that results in the qualifications needed to fill Indiana’s 550,000 middle-skill job openings. According to Feeding Indiana’s Hungry, from 2008-2012, 26.5 percent of households with children in Indiana said there were times when they did not have enough money to buy food that they needed. When families are under the stress and depression that can be caused by poverty, they may find in more difficult to spend their limited food dollars wisely. This can lead to obesity and/or increased hunger. In the game of life, obesity and hunger can go hand in hand.

Letters • Hudson family says thank you for help during, following Sept. 10 fire To the editor: Thank you is not enough. We would like to express our greatest thanks to all of the volunteer fire departments from Hudson, Ashley, Pleasant Lake, Helmer, Salem Center, Hamilton, Angola and Fremont for responding so quickly to our house fire on Sept. 10. The firemen never complained about the heat, they were just trying to save our house from the blaze. The professionalism of the crew, along with the many able and willing volunteers, has truly shown how important you are to a community. We would also like to thank the families from St. Mary’s Church/School in Avilla for the support during our loss. The donations made by

these families helped to clothe our family in the time when we needed it most. Your selfless acts remind us why we chose this school community for our children. To our employers, LazerSpot, Inc./ Graphic Packaging, Kendallville Pizza Hut and Lakepark Industries — thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for our family. To all of our neighbors, family and friends: Without you supporting us through this tough time, we would not have known which direction to turn. We are forever indebted to those who have lent a hand, ear or shoulder for us. Your thoughts, prayers and support were truly appreciated. The Gromaski family Jason, Jessica, Logan and Ashlin Hudson

Helping people afford new homes could aid job growth INDIANAPOLIS — We need jobs. In the five years since the mortgage bubble burst, Wall Street went into meltdown and the taxpayers from Main Street bailed the 1 percenters out, I survey friends and family who, in 2007 were quite doing well. And today, most of them struggle. We live in a state with a persistent jobless rate of 8.4 percent, and well over Hoosiers HOWEY 250,000 are officially POLITICAL unemployed. REPORT Hundreds of thousands more are underemBrian Howey ployed, working two or three jobs. The U.S. Census Bureau reported this week that while the median U.S. household income is at $51,017, Indiana is at 9 percent below, at $46,707. Utterly unacceptable. “Generally, we’re looking at sort of a lost decade for Hoosier families,” said Derek Thomas, a senior policy analyst for the Indiana Community Action Association. He told the Associated Press that unless effective policy changes are made, the next decade is likely to follow the trend. I had lunch with a boyhood friend of mine from Michigan City, Rob Jagger, who owns Old Fort Building Supply in South Bend. When I asked the inevitable “how’s business” question, I got that pained look, the kind of expression one has when they batten down the hatches. I see that look from businessmen all across the state. The problem is, this storm that began in September 2008 is still raging, even though the Great Recession officially ended some two or three years ago. Washington, D.C. is in a state of gridlock. There are no solutions to be found with that dysfunctional mob of pretenders. What could we do? Jagger observed that in scores of Indiana communities, tax abatements are given to businesses willing to relocate or expand. “What about a tax abatement for someone who wants to build a new house?” he asked.

In Indiana we’ve phased out the inheritance tax, which does virtually nothing for the middle class. We have cut the financial institutions and corporate taxes, which doesn’t do squat for the middle class. And then there was Gov. Mike Pence’s 5 percent income tax cut, which you might notice if you squint and compare your last pay stub to one from last June.

• It would work like this: you want to build a new house, or add on an in-law quarter for Mom, who just ain’t what she used to be. So the state could come up with a program that grants you a five-year property tax abatement, just like the big corporations and businesses get. You build your house and pay no property taxes the first year, then 20 percent the second, 40 percent the third … You get it. Here in Indiana, in the last few years, we’ve phased out the inheritance tax, which does virtually nothing for the middle class. We have cut the financial institutions and corporate taxes, which doesn’t do squat for the middle class. And then there was Gov. Mike Pence’s 5 percent income tax cut, which you might notice if you squint and compare your last pay stub to one from last June. That was symbolic. It will do little to create jobs. In a Howey Politics Indiana column by former House Majority Leader Russ Stilwell last May, he told this story: A couple years ago I asked a corporate finance officer of a large Indiana company what would happen if they received a 25 percent Hoosier corporate tax cut. Would they create jobs with the new found money? The answer was sobering. “We don’t create jobs with tax cuts. We create jobs when there is more demand for our product. We cut jobs when the demand is less demand. I hate to say this, but any new found money at the end of the year is added to our profit line. That extra profit would just mean my share of the profits (bonus) would just be larger.” Indiana jobs will be created when people start buying stuff. When places like Old Fort begin to have more customers. So Pence and the Indiana General Assembly in 2014 should

create the Middle Class Home Improvement Tax Abatement Program. It should create tax incentives for Hoosiers to build more homes, and add on to the ones they’ve got. When we start building more homes and adding on to existing ones, more contractors will be employed to construct them. More masons will lay brick. More dry wall will be nailed in. More toilets, granite kitchen counter tops, garage doors and fireplace inserts will be bought, and more nails and screws will be sold everywhere from Lowe’s to the local hardware store. When we sell more stuff, more people will have work. More businesses will make money. And the more people work and the more stuff that is sold, the more income and sales taxes they will pay. Everything Pence and the Indiana General Assembly do in 2014 should be aimed at creating incentives for more jobs, and educating our workforce to fill them. The governor laid some excellent groundwork with his Work Councils legislation that will match the needs of local businesses and industries to the curriculum in our local vocational schools. But to really gin up the production and the sales, we have to do more for the middle class than giving them a $50 or $100 a year income tax cut. As Thomas of the Community Action Association observed, “We need quality jobs that meet the needs of family.” Give the Hoosier middle class a home improvement tax abatement. Give us jobs.

Who is a journalist and why does it matter? Who is a journalist? That’s not a question limited to college classes, like the one Steve teaches on media ethics at George Washington University. Congress is now grappling with a definition as it debates a media shield law that would protect reporters against “unwarranted intrusion” by federal prosecutors, in the words of Sen. Chuck Schumer. The bill passed the Senate Judiciary Committee with COKIE ROBERTS bipartisan support earlier this month STEVEN ROBERTS and could soon be headed to the Senate floor. It sprang to life after a spate of intrusions by the Justice Department last spring graphically demonstrated how overzealous law enforcement can threaten the vitality of independent journalism. In one case, the department subpoenaed the phone records of Associated Press personnel who had broken a story about a failed terrorist plot in Yemen. In another case, a Fox reporter was branded a possible “co-conspirator” in an espionage investigation, an unprecedented attempt to criminalize the act of newsgathering. The ensuing outcry forced President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to revise Justice Department guidelines and make it harder for prosecutors to procure the testimony of journalists. But only Congress, they said, could decide who should qualify for those enhanced protections. Defining a journalist is not easy, and the shooting at the Navy Yard here in Washington this past week showed why. Amateurs rushed to help with the coverage, monitoring police scanners, taking photos and videos, tweeting and re-tweeting information. Some of their contributions were very helpful, and crowdsourcing is a growing part of the media universe. Police pleaded for citizen journalists to help fill in the background of the Navy Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis. But the amateurs also made a lot of mistakes, and one of them was to take information directly from police scanners and post it on social media as established fact. Mark Brady, an information officer for Prince George’s County in suburban Washington, D.C., told AP that “People on Twitter take it for granted that (scanner chatter) is real and confirmed,” when it’s not. Relaying such data without confirming it is “asking for trouble,” he said. Jim Farley, an executive at all-news radio station WTOP, told the Washington Post that experienced journalists wouldn’t commit that error. “We’ve always had a rule here: A scanner doesn’t give you information; it tells you (whom) to call,” he said. “It’s not a source.” Yes, professional journalists make

A shield law that applies to anyone with a laptop or cellphone would be meaningless. It could also be dangerous.

• mistakes too. We’ve made plenty ourselves. But there is a difference between an amateur and a professional: a difference in training, standards, experience and purpose. And that difference should be recognized in federal law. A shield law that applies to anyone with a laptop or cellphone would be meaningless. It could also be dangerous. One example: Every good journalist takes national security seriously, balancing the right of the public to be informed against its right to be safe. The Washington Post did exactly that after receiving leaks about clandestine surveillance operations from Edward Snowden. It published the story but withheld the most sensitive details at the request of the Obama administration. Should Wikileaks, which shows no such regard for security concerns, enjoy the same protections as the Post? What about Snowden himself? If he sits in the Moscow airport, writing a blog on his laptop, does that make him a journalist worthy of legal protection? Obviously not. The line has to be drawn somewhere. And the Senate committee did a good job: It defines a journalist as someone who has had an “employment relationship” with a media outlet for at least one year out of the last 20, or three months out of the last five years. It also includes student journalists, as well as freelancers with a “substantial track record” of performance. The lawmakers understand that the online landscape is changing rapidly, and not all journalists get regular paychecks or even freelance assignments. So they drafted a provision that allows a federal judge to include under the law anyone else who is engaged in “lawful and legitimate newsgathering activities.” A federal shield law is needed now more than ever. As Obama has demonstrated, politicians have a growing ability to communicate directly with citizens over multiple social media platforms, and avoid the questioning and scrutiny of independent journalists. Republicans should realize they have a vested interest here. No White House, of either party, should have the power to intimidate its journalistic critics. So here’s a way to get Republican votes for the shield law: Rename it the “Hold Obama’s Feet to the Fire Act.” COKIE ROBERTS AND STEVEN V. ROBERTS are columnists for Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

PATERNITY: Emancipation age is 19 in Indiana FROM PAGE A1


A woman who had been hiding during the gun battle runs for cover after armed police, seen behind, enter the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, Saturday. Gunmen threw grenades and opened

fire Saturday, killing at least 22 people in an attack targeting non-Muslims at an upscale mall in Kenya’s capital that was hosting a children’s day event, a Red Cross official and witnesses said.

ATTACK: Nairobi Westgate Mall is Israeli owned FROM PAGE A1

Somalia’s Islamic extremist group al-Shabab claimed responsibility and said the attack was retribution for Kenyan forces’ 2011 push into Somalia. The rebels threatened more attacks. Al-Shabab said on its Twitter feed that Kenyan security officials were trying to open negotiations. “There will be no negotiations whatsoever,” al-Shabab tweeted. As night fell in Kenya’s capital, two contingents of army special forces troops moved inside the mall. Police and military surrounded the huge shopping complex as helicopters buzzed overhead. An Associated Press reporter said he saw a wounded Kenyan soldier put into an ambulance at nightfall, an indication, perhaps, of a continuing shoot-out inside. Witnesses said at least five gunmen — including at least one woman — first attacked an outdoor cafe at Nairobi’s Westgate Mall, a shiny, new shopping center that includes Nike, Adidas and Bose stores. The mall’s ownership is Israeli, and security experts have long said the structure made an attractive terrorist target. The attack began shortly after noon with bursts of gunfire and grenades. Shoppers — expatriates and affluent Kenyans — fled in any direction that might be safe: into back corners of

stores, back service hallways and bank vaults. Over the next several hours, pockets of people trickled out of the mall as undercover police moved in. Some of the wounded were trundled out in shopping carts. “We started by hearing gunshots downstairs and outside. Later we heard them come inside. We took cover. Then we saw two gunmen wearing black turbans. I saw them shoot,” said Patrick Kuria, an employee at Artcaffe, the restaurant with shady outdoor seating. Frank Mugungu, an off-duty army sergeant major, said he saw four male attackers and one female attacker. “One was Somali,” he said, adding that the others were black, suggesting that they could have been Kenyan or another nationality. Al-Shabab, on its Twitter feed, said that it has many times warned Kenya’s government that failure to remove its forces from Somalia “would have severe consequences.” The group claimed that its gunmen had killed 100 people, but its assertions are often exaggerated. “The attack at #WestgateMall is just a very tiny fraction of what Muslims in Somalia experience at the hands of Kenyan invaders,” al-Shabab said. Another tweet said: “For long we have waged war against the Kenyans in our land, now

it’s time to shift the battleground and take the war to their land #Westgate.” Al-Shabab’s Twitter account was suspended shortly after its claim of responsibility and threats against Kenya. Twitter’s terms of service forbids making threats. Al-Shabab threatened in late 2011 to unleash a large-scale attack in Nairobi. Kenya has seen a regular spate of grenade attacks since then but never such a large terrorist assault. Nairobi’s mortuary superintendent, Sammy Nyongesa Jacob, said Africans, Asians and Caucasians were among the bodies brought to the mortuary. The U.S. State Department condemned “this senseless act of violence that has resulted in death and injury for many innocent men, women, and children.” In a separate statement, a White House spokeswoman said some staff at the U.S. Embassy in Kenya have been “tragically affected” by the attack. No other information was provided. “The perpetrators of this heinous act must be brought to justice, and we have offered our full support to the Kenyan Government to do so,” Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council, said in the statement.

Pope’s blunt remarks pose challenge for bishops NEW YORK (AP) — In recent years, many American bishops have drawn a harder line with parishioners on what could be considered truly Roman Catholic, adopting a more aggressive style of correction and telling abortion rights supporters to stay away from the sacrament of Communion. Liberal-minded Catholics derided the approach as tone-deaf. Church leaders said they had no choice given what was happening around them: growing secularism, increasing acceptance of gay marriage, and a broader culture they considered more and more hostile to Christianity. They felt they were following the lead of the pontiffs who elevated them. But in blunt terms, in an interview published Thursday in 16 Jesuit journals worldwide, the new pope, Francis called the church’s focus on abortion, marriage and contraception narrow and said it was driving people away. Now, the U.S. bishops face a challenge to rethink a strategy many considered essential for preserving the faith. “I don’t see how the pope’s remarks can be interpreted in any other way than arguing that the church’s rhetoric on the so-called culture war issues needs to be toned down,” said John Green, a religion

specialist at the University of Akron’s Bliss Institute of Applied Politics. “I think his language calls for less stridency on these issues.” The leadership of the American church is composed of men who were appointed by Popes John Paul II or Benedict XVI, who made a priority of defending doctrinal orthodoxy. Over the last decade or so, the bishops have been working to reassert their moral authority, in public life and over the less obedient within their flock. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops warned Catholics that voting for abortion-rights supporters could endanger their souls. Church leaders in Minnesota, Maine and elsewhere took prominent roles in opposing legal recognition for same-sex marriage in their states. Bishops censured some theologians and prompted a Vatican-directed takeover of the largest association for American nuns by bringing complaints to Rome that the sisters strayed from church teaching and paid too little attention to abortion. Terrence Tilley, a theologian at Fordham University, said Francis wasn’t silencing discussion of abortion or gay marriage, but indicating those issues should be less central, for the sake of evangelizing. But he noted that bishops

have independence to decide how they should handle local political issues. “Although Francis is sending a clear signal that he’s not a culture warrior, that doesn’t mean the bishops will follow in lockstep,” Tilley said. Few of the U.S. bishops who have commented so far on Francis’ interview indicated they planned to change. Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, head of the bishops’ religious liberty committee, said in a phone interview, “Issues do arise and we cannot always control the timing.” However, he added, “Every time I make a statement about one of these things I will certainly take another look at it and ask, ‘Does this really lead people back to the heart of the Gospel?’ “That’s what he’s asking us to do. I think that’s a fair question. “ Lori said he expected no changes in the bishops’ push for broader religious exemptions from the contraception coverage rule in the Affordable Care Act. Dozens of Catholic charities and dioceses, along with evangelical colleges and others, are suing the Obama administration over the regulation. The bishops say the provision violates the religious freedom of faith-based nonprofits and for-profit employers.

when there is some question or dispute as to who the father is, Wible said. In that instance, a mother comes in and fills out an application seeking to establish paternity. The case has to be pursued once it’s begun, Wible said, adding, “If there’s reason to believe he’s not the dad, you still have to go on through.” Most commonly, such cases that don’t end with a negotiation end with a DNA test, Morris said. Even DNA results can be disputed, Wible said. In 11 years as LaGrange County prosecutor, he had one man who had a positive test who still said, “I’m not the father.” In Noble County, 355 new child support cases were filed in 2012, Clouse said. Of those, 113 were paternity cases. Of the paternity cases, 80 required DNA testing, Clouse said. This year, Noble County has had 79 paternity cases filed so far, Clouse said. Thirty-six cases so far this year have required DNA tests. There were 127 paternity cases filed in DeKalb County in 2012, Morris said. So far in 2013, 73 have been filed.

But a key element is that paternity cases don’t just involve a child’s birth, Wible, Clouse and Morris said. Those cases continue in the system until the child is emancipated, no longer eligible to receive support through the legal system. Clouse said 1,598 cases were tagged as involving paternity in Noble County in 2012. Wible said LaGrange County has more than 1,000 active cases involving paternity. Some involve 17-year-olds, he said. The age of emancipation in Indiana is 19, but some paternity support claims can continue beyond that, said Wallace. Support requirements can continue while a child is in college. There are a variety of tools that can be used when support isn’t being paid, Wallace said. The state can go after the assets of a nonpayer of support and place liens on property. “We go after the money pretty aggressively,” Wallace said. For some cases, felony criminal charges can be filed, which can result in as much as an eight-year prison sentence, Wallace said. Paternity cases bring special challenges. “In some cases, the

woman doesn’t know who the father is. That takes a lot of work,” Wible said. Then there are cases involving parents who’ve moved from state to state, Morris said. “You get other states involved, they apply the law in that state,” she said. There are cases in which the man or woman decides to revoke the paternity affidavit after the fact, Morris said. That can have legal consequences, since lying on the affidavit is considered perjury. Another complicating issue is whether a man is treated as the child’s father, even if he is not biologically the parent. State laws recognize a man who functions as a father and is married to a child’s mother in that role, but a split can create more complications later. That’s especially true if someone else is the biological father. Paternity cases don’t get into custody issues, Morris said. Whatever else is true, paternity determination is needed, Clouse said, adding, “Society has an overriding interest that children know who their parents are and society knows who to give the rights and responsibilities for those children to.”

the Noble County Board of Zoning Appeals. “If we could do two or three stores a year … maybe in the long run it was good it happened this way,” Doug Jennings said. “It’s not the direction we thought it was going to take.” The original petition asked commissioners to rezone property at 11330 E. C.R. 500S to allow a village with people re-enacting 1800s life and crafts, along with related shops. The small shops would create items that were available in the 1800s, made the way the they were crafted in that time period. Eventual offerings would include jewelry, cast iron cook ware, woodworking, candle and toy and doll shops. The Christian-based effort would someday include a nondenominational church built as one would have been built in the 1800s. The plan met with opposition from some in the community, including a Realtor who submitted his opposition in writing when the plan came before the Noble County Plan Commission for recommendation. The Realtor, Bob Muller of Kendallville, has since recanted, saying that he now believes the project would be beneficial to the community as a whole and would not harm property values in the vicinity. Muller wrote a letter distributed to Noble County

the Christian-based village project, the couple said. The village shops, with demonstrators on hand, would become a good way for school children to learn about life in the 1800s. “It would be good for the kids to come out and visit,” he said. The village also would create a venue for local artisans. “It gives them a permanent venue to sell their wares,” he said.

Health law separates potential GOP contenders MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — A clear divide over the health care law separates the emerging field of potential GOP candidates for the 2016 presidential race, previewing the battles ahead as they try to rebuild their party and seize the White House. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz says he will fight “with every breath” to stop President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement, even if that means shutting down parts of the federal government. It’s an approach that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush calls “quite dicey” politically for Republicans. Allied on the other side Cruz, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and others who say they are making a principled stand, willing to oppose the law at all costs. Then there are those taking what they call a pragmatic approach by accepting the law, if

grudgingly, and moving on. This group includes Govs. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Scott Walker of Wisconsin, who says a shutdown would violate the public trust. “The government we have should work, so that’s why I don’t believe we should shut the government down,” Walker told reporters after speaking at a Republican conference in Michigan Saturday. The Republican-controlled House passed a short-term spending plan Friday that would continue funding government operations through mid-December while withholding money for the health law. Some GOP lawmakers also advocate holding back on increasing the nation’s borrowing limit, which could result in a first-ever default, unless the law is brought down. Obama used his weekly radio and Internet address

Saturday to scold “a faction on the far right” of the Republican Party, and he said he would not allow “anyone to harm this country’s reputation or threaten to inflict economic pain on millions of our own people, just to make an ideological point.” Less than one-quarter of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, about the same as approve of Republicans in Congress, according to recent national polls. Democrats poll slightly higher, and large majorities disapprove of the work of both. Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, hosting a state Republican conference where Walker and two other 2016 prospects, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, planned to speak Saturday, said a shutdown “reflects poorly on the national political culture.”




Industry sounds alarm on piracy Case on trial in WASHINGTON (AP) — The music and movie industries are sounding the alarm again on online piracy, saying illegal downloads are on the rise and search engines like Google aren’t doing enough to stop them. Entertainment executives say they have no intention of trying to revive failed legislation that would have imposed unprecedented regulations on Internet companies. That proposal last year prompted a fierce backlash from tech companies and activists who said it would damage the Internet as a free and open enterprise. But the industry’s top lobbyists returned to Capitol Hill this week to try to renew interest in online piracy, which has largely fallen off the public’s radar. They are distributing to sympathetic lawmakers their own research on what they say are the growing perils of piracy — some of which is contested by Internet activists — and telling Congress that Google and other search engines aren’t doing enough to redirect consumers away from known pirating sites.


In this April 24, 2012, file photo, Motion Picture of Association of America of Chief Executive Chris Dodd speaks during his CinemaCon State of the Industry address in Las Vegas.

The suggestion was that private talks between entertainment executives and Google on anti-piracy efforts had failed to produce a solution, prompting two lobbying giants — the Motion Picture Association of America and the

Recording Industry Association of America — to make their case instead in news conferences and hearing rooms on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, while Google declined to comment. “We invite Google and the other major search

engines to sit down with us to formulate a plan that goes beyond promises of action and actually serves its intended purpose of deterring piracy and giving the legitimate marketplace an environment to thrive,” RIAA Chairman Cary Sherman told a House panel on Wednesday. Earlier that day, MPAA Chairman Christopher Dodd, a former U.S. senator, joined several House lawmakers in telling reporters that “as the Internet’s gatekeepers, search engines share a responsibility to play a constructive role in not directing audiences to illegitimate content.” While Google declined to discuss the allegations, a spokeswoman pointed reporters to its own recent piracy assessment. In that report, Google claims consumers are more likely to find pirated material from friends or social networks than by using its search engines. “Google search is not how music, movie and TV fans intent on pirating media find pirate sites,” Google wrote in a report titled “How Google Fights Piracy.”

Review: 3 camera phones stand out for good shots BY ANICK JESDANUN AP Technology Writer

SUNNYVALE, Calif. (AP) — I used to cringe when I’d see people capturing precious memories with their smartphones. Although most smartphones have megapixel counts similar to what stand-alone cameras offer, they have been inferior in lens quality and manual controls. Images have never been as good … until now. Over the past two months, I’ve shot more than 3,000 test photos in four states using nine camera phones, a point-and-shoot camera and a high-end, single-lens reflex camera (also known as an SLR). None of the smartphone cameras are good enough to replace a $1,000-plus SLR, but I’m surprised how well some of the phones did, particularly in low-light settings that challenge even the best cameras. Three phones stand out: Nokia Corp.’s Lumia 1020, Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy S4 Zoom and the new Apple iPhone 5S, which comes out Friday. The Lumia 1020 squeezes a lot of camera innovations into a small device. It can take photos as large as 38 megapixels, which means you can crop the image to a quarter its size and still have enough detail for large postersize prints. With smaller files, you’re limited to smaller prints

when you crop. The 38 megapixels is about three times the 13 megapixels on Samsung’s regular Galaxy S4 and nearly five times the 8 megapixels on the iPhone 5S and 5C. It’s also more than what many SLR and point-and-shoot cameras offer. The downside: The Lumia runs Microsoft’s Windows system, which has relatively few apps from outside parties. The Galaxy S4 Zoom works much like other Android phones from Samsung, except that it has a real zoom lens, offering up to 10 times magnification. Other camera phones have digital zoom features, or magnification using software, but all that does is blow up shots without boosting clarity. With the optical zoom found in the Zoom and stand-alone cameras, you retain the sharpness as you zoom in. The Zoom’s 16 megapixels is better than most phones. The downside: It’s not available in the U.S. yet. The iPhone 5S, meanwhile, has a better camera than last year’s iPhone 5. The resolution remains at 8 megapixels, but the camera is able to sense light better because individual pixels are larger and the shutter can open wider. The downside: It’s behind in megapixels. The Lumia is the most consistent of the three at getting good night and indoor

shots. Friends have marveled at photos I’ve taken in bars without the flash. Using a technique called oversampling, the Lumia squeezes 38 megapixels worth of data into a 5-megapixel image, a size more manageable for sharing. What that also does is combine the small amount of light from multiple pixels into one, resulting in better lighting. An image stabilizer compensates for shaky hands. Apple takes a different approach with the 5S. Instead of adding more megapixels, it makes each pixel larger — 1.5 microns, compared with 1.12 microns on the Lumia. The new phone also has an image stabilizer and a wider shutter than previous models. Its flash produces two bursts of light at once, each slightly different in color and automatically adjusted to match ambient lighting. It is a technique I have never seen before in a camera — phone or otherwise — and results in better skin tones and more natural colors. A photo of my Sunnyvale hotel’s illuminated sign in the distance came out sharp on the 5S. Many cameras overcompensate for low light by making the few points of light too bright. With some cameras, the “O” in “Sundowner” didn’t look like an “O” but a solid dot. The 5S kept the letters clear.

Lawmaker says Taliban abduction made woman stronger KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Taliban kidnappers moved her to at least 13 homes, made her sleep on the ground, and kept asking where she’d been, what she’d done and whom she knew. Every few days, she would be given a chance to call her family. Still, the militants would push her only so far — they knew they needed to keep their bargaining chip in good shape. Fariba Ahmadi Kakar’s four-week ordeal ended this month after the Afghan government gave in to her captors’ demands to free some prisoners. In an interview with The Associated Press, the 39-year-old Afghan lawmaker gave a rare account of what it’s like for a woman to be held captive by the Islamist insurgents. “I wasn’t tortured. I wasn’t under constant stress. But I wasn’t free,” Kakar said. She’s also lucky to be

alive. Since July, several prominent women have been attacked in Afghanistan. Among them: two police officers who were killed in the south, an Indian author living in eastern Afghanistan who was killed years after her memoir about 1990s life under Taliban rule became a Bollywood film; and a senator who was wounded in an ambush. These and other attacks on female leaders in recent years have generally been blamed on the Taliban, though the Afghan militant group, mindful of cultural sensitivities, usually does not admit to targeting women. The assaults have added to growing fears that what few gains Afghan women have made since the U.S. toppled the Taliban government in 2001 could be erased once American-led foreign troops finish withdrawing next year.

24-year-old murder PHOENIX (AP) — On the final morning of 4-yearold Christopher Milke’s life, his mother sent him off to visit Santa Claus at a Phoenix shopping mall in a triceratops sweatshirt and cowboy boots. Within hours, the little boy with the blond bangs and dark eyes was dead, shot three times in the head, his body curled in a dry desert wash on the fringe of the city. Investigators quickly zeroed in on the mother, Debra Jean Milke, later condemned by her own family for treating Christopher with contempt. She was arrested, convicted and sentenced to death. But nearly 24 years after the crime, the case returns to a courtroom Monday — with the verdict and the detective who cemented it effectively on trial. A day after the killing, then-Phoenix police Detective Armando Saldate Jr. sat down alone with Milke to question her. A half-hour later, the young mother was arrested for plotting Christopher’s

murder based on a detailed confession, one whose veracity she and her defenders have refuted ever since. But Saldate, a 21-year veteran of the force, proved a most convincing witness. Listening to him, jurors looked past the fact that he had ignored a directive to record the interview, failed to secure a witness to observe it and destroyed his notes. And prosecutors did not share with them, or Milke’s own lawyer, a personnel record that included previous allegations of misconduct. It came down to his hard-boiled version of the truth over hers, based on words uttered in an interrogation room turned “into a black box, leaving no objectively verifiable proof as to what happened inside,” an appellate court opined in a scathing March decision setting aside Milke’s conviction. “No civilized system of justice should have to depend on such flimsy evidence,” the court said.

Sectional champs East Noble golfers take title at Cobblestone

Wolfpack wins big


ALBION — The Noble County Wolfpack used an easy 48-0 win over the Michiana Thunderhawks to advance to the Interstate Football League championship game next Saturday. The win over Thunderhawks came Saturday night at Central Noble High School. Noble County will play the Indiana Cutters in the IFL title game also at Central Noble. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. with a tailgate party planned for 5 p.m. The Cutters and the Wolfpack met twice in the regular season and split the two games. The Cutters advanced to Saturday’s championship game by defeating the Battle Creek Blaze in the other IFL semifinal last night.

KENDALLVILLE — The East Noble girls golf team finally got over the hump that is Carroll, and did so when it mattered the most. The Knights used an efficient 364 to steamroll by the field at its own IHSAA girls golf sectional at Cobblestone Saturday, beating the favored Chargers by 11 strokes with two of the tournament’s top three scorers to win the Sectional and advance to Regionals. Carroll, too, advanced with a runner-up 375, as does West Noble, which shot a 415. Goshen’s Teage Minier (94), Concord’s Michaela Searer (96) and Fairfield’s Regina Raber (99), who won in a three-golfer playoff,

each advance to regionals as individuals. Carroll’s Sarah Banister won medalist honors with a 9-over 81. East Noble’s Alyn Clark shot an 82 with a birdie and an eagle on her card, and teammate Logan Handshoe shot an 89. “I didn’t really expect this,” said East Noble coach Richard Bentz. “I assumed we’d probably get out (of the Sectional), but it’s neat for these girls. We were going against Carroll, we knew that. They’ve beaten us every time, but we’ve been close. We played well. It was tough out there; it was windy and awful tough to get the ball where you wanted it to go. But just a great round.” Bentz said his team was

in good position following an above-their-average 177 on the front, but said “the wheels kind of fell off” after the turn when each player struggled to find the hole and the Knights built-up cushion was deflated and Carroll closed in. But the Chargers struggled midway through the back nine when East Noble regained its composure and the Knights didn’t look back. Bentz praised his full team’s play, and he was right to do so. Knights’ No. 5 golfer Kasey VanWagner, who was down a stroke at the turn to Carroll’s Allison Boyle before turning it on the back nine to beat Boyle by five strokes, shot a 94.

EMMA — The girls portion of the Northeast Corner Conference soccer tournament remains the sole possession of the Westview Warriors. In its fifth year, the Warriors claimed their fifth tournament title with a 6-0 victory over Angola on Saturday. “It’s awesome, this is always a big accomplishment winning the NECC,” said Westview junior Steph Mowery, who had her second hat trick of the season in the game. “We’ve won it every single year. There’s pressure — and Angola had been doing pretty good.” The Hornets held Westview without a goal for over 20 minutes at the outset. But Westview scored twice before the half and then added four more goals in the second half for the win. “We came out with good speed and pressure but got a little tired near the end of the first half,” explained Angola coach Jen Sharkey. “Regardless of the score, we kept our heads high and have a lot to look forward to.” Riley Hochstetler put Westview on the scoreboard with just over 19 minutes to play in the first half on a rebound during a flurry in from of the net. Seven minutes later Sidney Byrkett bounced a shot off the left post for the Warriors. The ball bounced in front of the net and Amiah May sailed the rebound past the Hornets keeper for a 2-0 margin. Then Mowery got into the act. Twelve minutes into the second half she struck with her first goal and followed that with another score three minutes later on a pass from Riley Hochstetler. If that wasn’t enough, the junior made it 5-0 when the Hornet keeper came out and teammate Taryn Pruitt spotted her. SEE NECC, PAGE B3

Chargers take rematch, win NECC tournament BY JAMES FISHER

EMMA — Take away a five-minute stretch during Saturday’s Northeast Corner Conference tournament championship match and the outcome may have been different. “The coach told us the game is about timing,” West Noble’s Abel Zamarripa said after his squad’s 4-2 victory over Westview. “At that moment their defense made some mistakes and we put them in.” The Chargers scored all four of their goals in a five-minute span of the first half. “The intensity went up,” said West Noble senior Christian Marin. “Both teams wanted it — we just had that little extra.” Charger senior Uriel Macias scored three of the goals — the second-straight game he came through with a hat trick. “It means everything,” Macias said. “We practiced every day to beat them in the rematch, and we got it.” The Chargers lost 3-2 to Westview in the championship

game of last season’s tournament. Westview struck first on

Saturday. Lindon McDonald broke free before being corralled

by a West Noble player near the goal. Nate Geradot then took over possession and slipped a shot past West Noble goalkeeper Jonathan Moreno 14 minutes into the contest. That turned out to be the only time the Warriors would lead in the title match. Macias struck with his first goal with 17:24 remaining in the first half and two minutes later Zamarripa scored on a penalty kick. Less than a minute elapsed before the senior would score for a second time, putting the Chargers up 2-1. Two minutes passed before the senior struck again. The Warriors would cut the margin to 4-2 when Lucas Hunter scored on a penalty kick in what would be the final goal of the game. Both squads put on pressure during the second half, but neither could connect. “We hoped we had a lot of title opportunities from day one of the season,” Zamarripa said. “Today we achieved one. It’s a culmination of hard work throughout the season.”




Cubs rally late, beat Braves 3-1


Sectional champions The East Noble girls golf team, led by Alyn Clark’s 82, won the sectional championship Saturday at Cobblestone with a 364 team score to advance to Regionals. The

CHICAGO (AP) — The Cubs didn’t want to see a championship celebration at Wrigley Field — not if the other team would have been whooping it up. A late rally prevented that. Dioner Navarro hit a tiebreaking single in a three-run eighth inning, and the Cubs beat Atlanta 3-1 Saturday to keep the Braves on the brink of the NL East title. Atlanta’s magic number remained at one to clinch its first division title since 2005. Second-place Washington hosted Miami later Saturday. Either way, the Cubs didn’t have to watch a celebration. “One day, hopefully, that’ll be us and we can move forward from that,” Travis Wood said. The Cubs are a long way from contention, of course. They have 90 losses and are last in the NL Central, with another brutal season coming to a finish. Not having to witness the Braves’ clinching was just one small victory. “It was nice not to have to see (a celebration) in person,” manager Dale Sveum said. Starlin Casto singled off Kris Medlen with one out in the eighth, pinch-hitter Donnie Murphy singled against Scott Downs (2-1) and Anthony Rizzo hit a tying double down the left-field line. Navarro singled in the go-ahead run against David Carpenter, and Nate Schierholtz added a sacrifice fly. “They just made some good swings,” Laird said. “Rizzo went out and got that ball, hit it down the line. Dioner hit that slider down and in. You’ve got to tip your cap to them.” Medlen held Chicago to one run and six hits in 7 1-3 innings after going 4-0 with an 0.98 ERA in his previous four starts. “It’s tough, but I’m a former bullpen guy, and I know how tough that job is,” Medlen said. “The dudes do their best. They’ve carried us the entire year, so these things happen and nobody in this clubhouse is panicking at all or anything. Credit their pitcher with keeping the game close, too. (Travis) Wood’s

having a great year. I felt it all game. I felt like it was in my hands, and the game was over. I had all the confidence in the world in myself and I just tried making pitches.” Carlos Villanueva (7-8) relieved Wood with two on and no outs in the eighth after Justin Upton doubled and Freddie Freeman walked. Villanueva induced a double-play grounder by Chris Johnson and a flyout by Evan Gattis. Pedro Strop struck out the side in the ninth for his first save in four chances. Atlanta went ahead in the fourth when Freeman walked and scored on Gattis’ single. But B.J. Upton also struck out looking with the bases loaded to end the rally. Wood settled down after that, allowing one run, five hits and four walks in seven innings with seven strikeouts. “I had pretty command of most my pitches, being able to locate my fastball and getting the cutter on their hands and get some early swings and some quick outs,” Wood said. “Just that last inning kind of got away from me quick. I really wanted to go out there and finish it strong and maybe overtried a little bit and left a pitch over that Upton could hit and Freeman battled me.” NOTES: Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said OF Jason Heyward “was feeling great,” a day after Heyward returned from the disabled list. Heyward was not in the lineup on Saturday after going 0 for 2 with a walk in his first appearance since breaking his jaw on Aug. 21 because of a broken jaw. … The Cubs unveiled a logo to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field in 2014. It shows the ballpark’s familiar marquee and facade with “100 years 1914-2014.” The logo, which will be featured as a patch on the team’s home uniform next season, was submitted by Brandon Ort of New Bremen, Ohio, as part of a fan contest before the season. … RHP Julio Teheran (12-8, 3.14 ERA) starts Sunday for Atlanta, with RHP Edwin Jackson (8-16, 4.75) pitching for Chicago.

CHAMPIONS: Teel helps lead West Noble to regionals FROM PAGE B1

Cooper Handshoe, who shot three triple bogeys early in her back nine, rebounded with a par and two bogeys on her last three holes to finish with a 99. Clark said her birdie and eagle to start her round launched her confidence. She said from there, her round was a shot-for-shot battle with Banister, one of the area’s best. “We came into it hoping for the best and I’m really proud of my teammates, we really pulled through,” said Clark. “Considering the weather conditions, we had to wait until the end to see what was going to happen. It could have been anybody’s day. But it feels pretty great. I’m glad that we got to this point. We’ve been working really hard all season to get here.” West Noble was led by a 94 by Haley Teel. Teel birdied the par-4 11th and parred five other holes. Paige Shearer shot a 102, Rachel Stohlman shot a 106 and Molly Marsh shot a 108 to keep pace for the Chargers. Prairie Heights, which participated with two golfers, was led by Kelsey Younce’s 112. Younce parred No. 2 and had four bogeys on the day. Concord finished with a 415, led by Searer’s 96 and a 101 from No. 5 Elizabeth Gill. Goshen and Fairfield each shot team scores of 424, ahead of Northridge’s 463.

Thunder hold off Falcons in shootout ANGOLA — Trine University’s football team hung on to beat Concordia (Wis.) 47-41 in a Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Conference -Northern Athletics Conference Challenge game Saturday afternoon at Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium. The Thunder survived two comebacks from the Falcons to improve to 3-0. Concordia (1-2) was picked to win the NAC in the preseason coaches poll. Trine overcame huge games from junior quarterback Austin Damaschke and 6-foot-6 junior receiver Garrett Wenzeburger. Damaschke completed 28-of-42 passes for 348 yards and five touchdowns, but threw two picks. Wenzelburger caught 13 passes for 196 yards and

three touchdowns. That made up for the Falcons only rushing for five yards. The Thunder had answers to Concordia’s pursuits and recovered two onside kicks late. Trine led 24-7 late in the second quarter, then recovered a short kickoff no Concordia player got to around midfield. But Falcon defensive end DeShawn Pullen intercepted an Andrew Dee screen pass and had a big return to the Thunder 9-yard line. Damaschke hit Wenzelburger to a 9-yard scoring pass to begin the first rally. A 6-yard pass from Damaschke to Peter Morton got Concordia within 31-27 early in the fourth quarter. But on the ensuing extra-point attempt, the snap went over the holder’s head.

Thunder linebacker Derek Posey scooped up the loose ball and went the other way for two points. Trine took momentum on that play and followed up with two touchdowns to take a 47-27 lead with 9 minutes, 2 seconds left. Zach Hess caught a 44-yard touchdown pass from Dee, then Austin J. Shoemaker scored his third touchdown of the game from eight yards out. But Concordia did not give up. However, Trine clinched the win by recovering an onside kick in the final minute. Dee threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns in his first collegiate start. That was the most yards passing in a starting debut in the Thunder’s NCAA Division III era. The junior

completed 19-of-31 passes and replaced Anthony Yoder, who hurt his right throwing hand against Elmhurst last week. But Yoder was healthy enough to be in the receiving rotation and caught two passes for 16 yards. Gage Corner had seven catches for 111 yards and a touchdown. Trine had 497 yards, including 212 rushing, and was 8-for-18 converting third downs. Richard Gunn had 17 carries for 109 yards and a touchdown. Shoemaker had 60 yards on 22 carries. Posey had eight tackles, including four solos, to lead the Trine defense. Tyler Guzy and Caleb Nitz each had an interception. Charlie Dreessen and Louis Danesi each had a sack.

Chargers are cross country champions BY BOB BUTTGEN

LIGONIER — West Noble’s Brandon Arnold defended his school’s turf Saturday by winning the individual championship and leading his team to the first-place trophy in the 43rd annual West Noble Invitational Cross Country meet in Ligonier. Arnold held off DeKalb’s Mark Beckmann for the title in the 5K run over the hilly West Noble course. DeKalb finished fifth in the boys’ team standings and Lakeland was sixth. Prairie Heights’ boys were eighth. Fort Wayne Homestead dominated the girls race as West Noble’s girls finished in third place and DeKalb was fourth. Arnold finished in a time of 15:47.23, five seconds ahead of Beckmann. Arnold’s teammate, Bradley Pyle was fifth overall, while DeKalb’s Dante Graham was second-best for the Barons, finishing in 20th place. In the girls competition, West Noble’s Amairany Cruz was the top area’s runner, finishing in fifth place. DeKalb’s Krista McCormick led her team with an eighth-place finish. Yvette Rojas also had a top-ten finish for the Chargers, coming in tenth overall. Lindsey Marriott of Leo was the individual winner in the girls’ race with a time of 19:11.46.

races. Westview as fifth and West Noble 14th. More than 1,600 runners took part in the day’s races including varsity, junior varsity, middle school and reserve competitors. New Prairie Invitational In New Carlisle, the largest event of high school participants in the state was held and several area harriers did very well. In Class AAA, Fremont’s girls ran with programs from some of the biggest schools in the state and finished sixth with 181 points. Penn won on the girls’ side with 93 and East Noble was also in AAA for both the boys and the girls. The EN boys were 16th with 395 and the EN girls were 18th with 440. The Eagle boys were

10th in the Class A race for small schools with 332. “We did really good,” Fremont coach Moses Castillo said. “We had a lot of PRs (personal records) on a tough course.” In the girls’ race, Eagle senior Abby Hostetler was third in a time of 18 minutes, 36.7 seconds. Sophomore Katie Culler set a new personal best by around 30 seconds in placing 12th in 19:25.2. Freshman Courtney Woosley took about 50 seconds off her PR in finishing 27th in 10:17.6. Makenna Cade was 67th in 21:10.8 for the Eagles, and Riley Welch was 72nd in 21:14.5. East Noble’s Alexia Zawadzke was ninth in 19:20.9. Courtney

Casselman was 63rd in 21:03.9, and Jessica Vandiver finished in 11th in 22:13.5. For the Knight boys, Joe Vandiver was 21st in 16:51, Jonathon Kane was 65th in 17:34.2, and Tyler Klinger was 94th in 18:04.7. Frank Herrera cracked the top 100 in 99th in 18:04.7. In Class A, Fremont’s boys and both Westview teams competed. The Warrior girls were seventh with 205, and the Warriors boys were 12th with 367. The Eagles were led by Alex Beams in 16th in 17:47.7 and David Schmucker in 18th at 17:53.7. Cooper Wall PRed at 19:32.3 in finishing 83rd. Six Warrior girls were in the top 70. Kathy Franklin was 25th in 22:08.9, Sierra Weaver was 28th in 22:23.7, Jeannie Bontrager was 38th in 22:59.3, Hope Brandenberger was 53rd in 23:38.5, Kaitlyn Warren was 61st in 23:56, and Taylor Trittipo was 70th in 24:17. For the Westview boys, Derek Miller led the squad in 20th place at 17:55.3. Spencer Shank was 50th in 18:35.8, and Devin Sharick was 66th in 19:03.4. In Class AA, Angola was 15th out of 33 teams in the boys’ meet with 299 and 17th out of 31 teams in the girls’ meet with 391. Nate Roe was 21st at 17:17.4 and Isaiah Mortorff was 25th at 17:21.7 to lead the Hornet boys. Zach Orn was 67th in 18:13.1. Josey Korte once again led the Hornet girls as she finished 18th in 20:24.3. Alexis Buck was 61st in 21:46.4, and Grace Floto was 89th in 22:36.

GOLF: Bishop Dwenger repeats as sectional champ at Zollner FROM PAGE B1

Luebbert won the first hole of the playoff to advance as she parred the par 5 10th hole while Porath boggyed after not overcoming a bad tee shot. Bishop Dwenger won the sectional with a 369, and that was five shots better that second-place Leo. Fremont shaved 37 shots off its NECC Tournament score at Zollner from last weekend and placed fifth in the sectional with 400. Snider was sixth with 431, followed by Concordia (442), Northrop (464) and Fort Wayne North Side (564). Blackhawk Christian junior Jaycee Bunner was sectional champion with a 6-over par 77 and will play in the East Noble Regional this coming Saturday at Noble Hawk Golf Links in Kendallville. Yesterday at Zollner, top players for the Hornets and Barons had to overcome some rough spots. Angola happened to end up one shot better. It’s the ninth straight year under coach Joan Sanborn that at least one Hornet will be playing regional golf. “We have such a nice group of girls. I’m proud of them. I knew it would be tough to get out,” Hornets coach Joan Sanborn said. The junior Kelly led the Hornets with a 91. The freshman Stanley shot 96 out of the No. 5 spot. Kelly said the mental game was key in her big day. “Every time I had a double bogey, I knew it just took a par to bring it back to bogey golf,” Kelly said. “If I had a bad hole, it wasn’t the end of the world.” Seniors Alison Brimmer and Morgan Dornte and sophomore Kandi Bach recovered on the back nine after rough front nines. Dornte had a 46 on back after a 53 on the front for a 99. Brimmer had a 45 on the back after a 56 on the front for a 101. Bach had 48 on the back after a 53 on the front for a 101. It was heartbreak for the Barons. But their big highlight was a season-best score of 93 from top player Katie Skidmore. DeKalb was missing a varsity regular due to injury. “We just made some mental mistakes. And everybody contributed to those mental errors,” Barons coach Erren West said. “We also had some moments of awesomeness.” DeKalb also had a 95

from Sydney Weghorst, a 98 from Christy Williams, 102 from Kelsey Helmkamp and 120 from Carly Bassett. “We were battling injuries all season long. But the girls worked their tails off. I couldn’t as for anymore from them,” West said. Behnfeldt will still be playing golf because her total game emerged. She started with a 43 on the back nine, then did better on the front side that is regarded as the tougher nine by shooting 41. That front nine began with two straight birdies. “It feels great,” Behnfeldt said of advancing to regional. “My long game and my short game came together and it just worked out. I just want to finish the year with a good score. Eagle coach Eric Wirick said, “Alivia has been on the verge of playing well, and she has come up big in her two biggest meets, the conference tournament of her senior year, and the sectional in her senior year. She’s a good leader working with four freshmen and is a great kid.” Porath was sound, too, with a 44 on the back followed by a 45 on the front. “For a freshman to do what she did was amazing,” Wirick said. “This is encouraging for the future of our golf program.” The jitters went away from Fremont’s four freshmen after their first postseason tournament last weekend. Makayla Hull, who began playing golf in July, shot 113. The Eagles also had 114 from Katie Sidwell and 116 from Karli Forte.

NECC: Westview will take on Angola again on Tuesday FROM PAGE B1

NECC Tournament champions Members of the Westview girls soccer team pose following a 6-0 victory over Angola in the championship game of the


Northeast Corner Conference tournament on Saturday. It was the team’s fifth-consecutive tournament championship.

“Taryn had a perfect cross, all I had to do was finish it,” Mowery said. The Warriors completed the scoring when Tori Oesch drove a ball past the outstretched gloves of the Hornets keeper. “We go into every game as if it’s the last, so we really didn’t have a lot of extra pressure on us, but I guess it was in

the back of our minds,” said Westview coach Jon Jantzi. “We were passing the ball. Later in the game we just kept breaking them down.” The Warriors are 8-3 overall and 3-0 in the NECC. The squad returns to league play on Tuesday at Angola. “I’m sure they’ll come out with intensity, but we’ll come out just as hard,” Mowery said.




Tigers rally past ChiSox

Pirates beat Reds

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers tied the game with an astonishing six-run rally in the ninth inning, then beat the Chicago White Sox 7-6 on Saturday night when Omar Infante hit an infield single with the bases loaded in the 12th. Infante’s grounder deflected off the glove of reliever Jacob Petricka (1-1) with one out, and the Tigers spilled onto the field with Comerica Park in a frenzy. Detroit plays its final scheduled home game of the year Sunday and can clinch a third straight AL Central title with a win and a Cleveland loss. Trailing 6-0 in the ninth, the Tigers scored five runs before the first out.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A.J. Burnett scattered four hits over seven strong innings to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Cincinnati Reds 4-2 on Saturday night. Burnett (9-11) struck out a season-high 12 as the Pirates moved a game in front of Cincinnati for the top spot in the NL wild-card race. Jason Grilli worked the ninth for his 31st save, his first since going to the disabled list with a strained right forearm in July. Russell Martin hit a two-run homer and Jose Tabata added two hits as the Pirates bounced back from a late collapse in a loss on Friday night. Zach Cozart hit his 12th home run of the season for Cincinnati and Ryan Ludwick added an RBI but Homer Bailey (11-11) ended a winning streak at six straight decisions. The Reds rallied for a 6-5 win in 10 innings on Friday, turning three unearned runs in the ninth and Joey Votto’s solo homer in the 10th into a tie with the Pirates for the top spot in the NL wild-card race. It was the second gut-punch loss by the Pirates in three days. In danger of falling behind the Reds in the standings for the first time since June 20, Pittsburgh reduced its magic number to three behind Burnett. Ludwick’s RBI single in the first and Cozart’s deep home run to left leading off the second gave the Reds an


early 2-0 lead before Burnett settled in. Mixing his fastball with a curveball nearly unhittable, Burnett retired 14 of the final 15 batters he faced and became the first right-hander in Pittsburgh’s 126-year history to reach the 200-strikeout plateau when he fanned Joey Votto to start the sixth. Bailey wasn’t quite as sharp. Making his first at PNC Park since throwing a no-hitter at the Pirates last September, Bailey was solid but not spectacular. An off night by Cincinnati’s typically reliable defense didn’t help. Alvarez reached with two outs in the third when Votto

mishandled a slow chopper to first. Martin followed by taking a fastball from Bailey and sending it into the bleachers in left field to tie the game at 2. Pittsburgh broke the tie in the sixth. Andrew McCutchen walked with one out and sprinted to third when Bailey’s attempted pickoff throw slipped past Votto and rolled to the wall. Justin Morneau walked to put runners on the corners and Byrd hit a sacrifice to deep center field to give the Pirates the lead. Bailey gave up four runs, two earned, on three hits with four walks and three strikeouts.

The key hit came from Dirks, who followed Martinez with a homer that made it 6-5. Chicago closer Addison Reed, who didn’t appear to have had much time to warm up, came on and immediately walked Infante, who moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Ramon Santiago. Pinch-hitter Alex Avila and Austin Jackson both drew walks to load the bases for Hunter, whose sacrifice fly tied it.

scored two runs in the third inning of a baseball game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., Saturday. The Royals lost to the Rangers, 3-1.

Rangers stay close to Rays, Indians in AL wild card race KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Matt Garza pitched eight impressive innings for his first victory in six starts and the Texas Rangers kept close in the playoff race, beating the Kansas City Royals 3-1 on Saturday night. The Rangers won for only the fifth time in 19 September games. They remained a half-game behind Cleveland for the second AL wild-card berth. The Royals, out of the playoffs since winning the 1985 World Series, dropped 3½ games in back of the Indians. Adrian Beltre got two hits and drove in a run for Texas. Garza (10-6) was 0-3 with an 8.22 ERA in his first three September starts. He pitched four-hit ball before giving up Eric Hosmer’s leadoff home run in the ninth, and was pulled. Garza struck out five and walked one. He is 4-5 in 12 starts since the Rangers acquired him on July 22 in a trade with the Chicago Cubs. After Hosmer’s 17th homer, Joe Nathan relieved. The Texas closer struck out two for his 40th save in 43 chances. Nathan posted his 41st career save against the Royals. Jeremy Guthrie (14-12) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings. He has permitted six runs and 20 hits in 14 innings in losing his past two starts. Beltre’s .374 career batting average at Kauffman

Pinch-hitter Andy Dirks hit a three-run homer to pull Detroit within one. Al Alburquerque (4-3) got the win. The Tigers won after trailing by six in the ninth for the first time since Aug. 22, 1947, according to STATS. They beat the Washington Senators 7-6 that day. Chicago’s Chris Sale was working on a shutout when he was pulled in the eighth after 97 pitches. Nate Jones got out of that inning and after the White Sox added three runs in the top of the ninth, he came back to the mound with a 6-0 lead. Detroit wasted no time turning a previously subdued night at the

Stadium is the highest for an opposing batter with at least 150 plate appearances. Guthrie gave up a triple to Ian Kinsler to lead off the game. Kinsler scored on Elvis Andrus’ groundout. In the third, Guthrie’s control betrayed him when he walked Andrus and Alex Rios on eight pitches, and both scored. Beltre bounced an RBI single up the middle and A.J. Pierzynski had a sacrifice fly. The Royals had only one batter past second base before Hosmer’s homer. Jarrod Dyson tripled with two out in the fifth, but was stranded when Alcides Escobar looked at a called third strike. Rays 5, Orioles 1 In St. Petersburg, Fla. Desmond Jennings drove in four runs, Alex Cobb took a three-hit shutout into the ninth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 Saturday in a matchup of exhausted teams to maintain their lead in the AL wild-card race. The first pitch came 10 hours, 56 minutes after the Rays’ 5-4, 18-inning win over Baltimore that ended at 2:05 a.m., a game that stretched on for 6:54 — a record time for both teams. Saturday’s game, by comparison, seemed to breeze by in 2:51. Tampa Bay (85-69) moved one game ahead of Cleveland (84-70), which led for the second wild-card berth pending its game against Houston

later Saturday. The Orioles (81-73) dropped three games behind the Indians and now have three others teams in front of them. Cobb didn’t allow a hit until Steve Clevenger lined a single to right with two outs in the fifth. The Orioles had only two hits over the final 11 innings Friday. Chris Davis tripled with one out in the ninth off Cobb, a fly ball David DeJesus struggled to locate in left. Adam Jones followed with an RBI single that chased Cobb, who struck out 12 and walked two. Closer Fernando Rodney completed the three-hitter. Miguel Gonzalez (10-8) Gonzalez gave up three runs, two hits and five walks in six innings. The right-hander had been 2-0 with an 0.92 ERA in his previous three starts at Tropicana Field. Indians 4, Astros 1 Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer and host Cleveland maintained its hold on an AL wild-card spot with a victory. Houston, a major league-worst 51-104, is on a season-high eight-game losing streak and has totaled just 12 runs during the skid. The Astros scored when Chris Carter homered against Joe Smith with two outs in the ninth. Kazmir (9-9) struck out 10 and walked two. He had been 1-5 with a 5.82 ERA ERA in his previous seven starts.

No. 22 Irish outlast Michigan State SOUTH BEND (AP) — Notre Dame took advantage of a trick play that backfired, as well as four pass interference calls and a holding penalty that kept drives alive, to defeat Michigan State for the third straight time. The mistakes led to all of Notre Dame’s points in the 17-13 victory, including two on the game-winning drive after a pass by Michigan State receiver R.J. Shelton led to an interception by safety Matthias Farley, setting up the go-ahead touchdown. Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said he couldn’t ever recall so many defensive pass interference calls in one game. “I’ve been coaching 30-plus years, no. Never,” he said. “I guess that’s where we should stop.” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said he wasn’t surprised by the calls because of the number of long passes the Irish attempted. “When you know the quarterback is going to throw it back shoulder, and the defensive back doesn’t know where it is, you have an advantage in that situation,” he said. “You’re going to get some pass interference calls when you put the ball in a good

position.” The costliest mistake, though, likely was the interception thrown by Shelton that shifted momentum Notre Dame’s way after the Spartans were making progress against the Irish. Shelton threw into double coverage and Farley picked it off. Dantonio said he called the trick play. “I felt,” he said, “like we needed a big play.” The Spartans were called for two pass interference calls on the ensuing drive, allowing Notre Dame to maintain possession. The Irish, who continually passed, even on short running situations, scored moments later when Notre Dame appeared to surprise the Spartans with a call. Cam McDaniel raced into the end zone to take the 17-10 lead with 14:44 left to play. The Irish (3-1) also took advantage of another questionable pass interference in the first half that set up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Tommy Rees to TJ Jones, and a holding penalty that kept alive a drive that led to a 41-yard field goal by Kyle Brindza. The Spartans (3-1) had 10 penalties for 115 yards by the Big Ten officials. But the Irish were flagged eight

times for 86 yards. “We’ve got to be able to handle those things,” Dantonio said, “and play through the adversity.” Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard said the Spartans couldn’t let the penalties affect them. “In the end, we just got to make more plays to help the offense out,” he said. “The refs call what they had to call. They thought it was pass interference. We got to continue to play.” The Spartans entered with the nation’s No. 1 defense, allowing 50 yards a game rushing, and 127 passing. Michigan State’s defense had also scored four touchdowns, which is also how many it had allowed. They stopped the Irish on the ground, holding them to 82 yards, and limited Rees to a season-low 142 yards passing. But it wasn’t enough, as the rivalry was decided by a touchdown or less for the ninth time in the past 14 meetings. Rees, who opened the season with three 300-yard passing games, was 14-of-34 passing. “He just missed open receivers,” Kelly said. “I mean, we had guys open. He just didn’t hit them.” Rees said the Irish needed to attempt some long

couple big ones,” he said. “We found a way to get the ball in the end zone in the end, but we need to find a way to be more efficient.” Despite the offensive

struggles, the Irish have now won 10 straight at home for the first time since 1999, when Bob Davie was coach. Notre Dame won 19 straight under Lou Holtz 1987-90.

Buckeyes deliver one of many blowouts Badgers pound

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Kenny Guiton again starred in place of the injured Braxton Miller, setting a school record with six touchdown passes — all in the first half — to lead No. 4 Ohio State to a 76-0 victory against Florida A&M on Saturday. It was the most lopsided Ohio State win since 1935. The Buckeyes (4-0) needed a total of four offensive plays and 46 seconds to go up 21-0 in the opening 6 minutes and never looked back. It was an epic mismatch between a team with national-title aspirations and a Football Championship Subdivision member getting a $900,000 guarantee. FAMU (1-3), which suffered its worst loss ever, trailed 48-0 before picking up its initial first down in the second quarter. Guiton completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards. His TD passes went to five different receivers. The game was Ohio State’s last tuneup before opening Big Ten play next week against No. 24 Wisconsin at home on Saturday night. The last time the Buckeyes won by such a large margin was an 85-7 victory over Drake in 1935. They had not won a shutout by such a landslide since a 76-0 win at Western Reserve in 1934. The Rattlers’ biggest previous margin of defeat was 73-6 to Tuskegee in 1926. They lost to Oklahoma 69-13 a year ago and South Florida 70-17 in 2011. Ohio State had a 34-2 edge in first downs and a 603-80 differential in yards. No. 5 Stanford 42, No. 23 Arizona State 28. In Palo Alto, Calif., Tyler Gaffney ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns, Anthony Wilkerson added 68 yards and another score, and No. 5 Stanford started strong in a 42-28 victory over No. 23 Arizona State on Saturday night in the Pac-12 opener for both teams. The defending conference champions controlled every facet of the game to turn the only matchup between ranked opponents this week into a 29-0 halftime lead. The Cardinal (3-0, 1-0) scored in the air and on the ground, forced two turnovers, blocked two punts, tallied 10 tackles for loss and recorded three sacks. Taylor Kelly threw for 367 yards, including three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, and Jaelen Strong caught 12 passes for

168 yards and a score for the Sun Devils (2-1, 0-1). No. 7 Louisville 72, Florida International 0 In Louisville, Ky., Teddy Bridgewater threw four touchdown passes and Louisville’s defense allowed a school-record 30 yards, helping the Cardinals blow out Florida International (0-4). It was the highest scoring game for the Cardinals (4-0) since a 73-10 victory over Murray State in 2007. No. 9 Georgia 45, North Texas 21 In Athens, Ga., Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for another score to lead Georgia over pesky North Texas.

Murray overcame an early interception in the end zone, hooking up with freshman Reggie Davis on a 98-yard TD — the longest pass play in school history. Arthur Lynch and Chris Conley also had touchdown catches for the Bulldogs (2-1). The Mean Green (2-2) came in as a 33-point underdog, but big plays on special teams helped make a game of it. Brelan Chancellor returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, and Zac Whitfield fell on a blocked punt in the end zone early in the second half to stunningly tie the game at 21. No. 17 Washington 56, Idaho State 0 In Seattle, Keith Price threw for 213 yards and

three touchdowns in less than a half, Deontae Cooper scored his first career touchdown after three major knee surgeries, and Washington (3-0) routed Idaho State in the Huskies’ final tuneup before the start of Pac-12 play. Bishop Sankey, the national leader in yards rushing per game, barely broke a sweat against the Bengals (2-1) of the FCS. Sankey saw action on the Huskies’ first three series and scored on a 3-yard TD run in the first quarter. Sankey finished with 77 yards on four carries. No. 18 Northwestern 35, Maine 21 At Evanston, Ill., linebacker Damien Proby and defensive end Dean Lowry each had an interception return for a touchdown to lead Northwestern over Maine (3-1). Northwestern improved to 4-0 as it wrapped up its non-conference slate, but this was not the consistent, steady performance coach Pat Fitzgerald was looking for heading into Big Ten play. Running back Mike Trumpy and quarterback Kain Colter each had rushing TDs for Northwestern. No. 19 Florida 31, Tennessee 17 In Gainesville, Fla., after starting quarterback Jeff Driskel was lost to a seasonending ankle injury, Tyler Murphy led Florida to five scores in a somewhat ugly game, helping the Gators open Southeastern Conference play with a victory. No. 20 Baylor 70, Louisiana Monroe 7 In Waco, Texas, Bryce Petty threw for 351 yards with four touchdowns and ran 2 yards for another score, and Baylor kept piling up the points in a win.

Boilermakers MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Melvin Gordon darted for the end zone, carrying the lunging Purdue defender with him over the goal line. Nothing seems to stop Wisconsin running backs. Gordon ran for three touchdowns and 147 yards, James White added 145 yards and a 70-yard score, and the 24th-ranked Badgers opened Big Ten play by trampling over Purdue with a 41-10 win Saturday. “They’re just so dynamic, their ability to make people miss and they really kind of complement each other with the running styles, in my opinion,” coach Gary Andersen said. Wisconsin moved on nicely from last week’s stunning 32-30 loss to Arizona State, after officials mishandled the final seconds to deprive the Badgers of a game-winning field-goal try. No last-minute worries this week. Wisconsin (3-1, 1-0) led by two touchdowns at the half and by three scores early in the third quarter after Gordon fended off Ricardo Allen’s failed last-ditch effort to stop the 15-yard touchdown run. Andersen said he wanted his players to learn from the loss and move on — but not necessarily forget about it. That’s a very sizable chip on the collective shoulders of the Badgers. They might be a field goal away from being unbeaten heading into next weekend’s showdown at Ohio State. “It’s just getting started, it’s not as if we’re ever going to forget that,” linebacker Chris Borland when asked

about the Arizona State loss. “We’re going to play with the idea of taking frustration out on our opponents all year.” Purdue (1-3, 0-1) got walloped with decisive disadvantages in total yards (546-180), yards rushing (388-45) and first downs (22-12). Not the way coach Darrell Hazell hoped his first Big Ten game would go. “Right now, we’ve got to do a good job as a football team soul-searching,” he said. “Obviously, that’s not the way Purdue football wants to play. We need to get a lot better.” Quarterback Rob Henry’s 22-yard scramble for a score on what appeared to be a busted play provided one of the few highlights for the Boilermakers. Nose guard Warren Herring had a sack and three tackles, and Borland had six stops and a pass breakup at the goal line with the game still close in the first half. “We got more push today, overall. We got a few more pressures that came clean early, forced him to escape,” Andersen said. “The kids rushed the passer better today and had some opportunities to make some plays, and they made them.” Wisconsin tallied four sacks on the afternoon after recording just one combined over the first three games. Purdue’s defensive highlight came after Allen intercepted an errant throw by Joel Stave and returned it to the Wisconsin 10 to put Purdue in good shape on its next drive.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Former Steelers’ great Reger dies at 82 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Three-time Pro Bowl linebacker John Reger, who starred for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins in the 1950s and 60s, died Thursday in Tampa. He was 82. Reger’s daughter Kathy confirmed his death Saturday in an email to the Associated Press. A native of Wheeling, W.Va., Reger played collegiately at Pittsburgh and made the Steelers as an undrafted rookie in 1955. He forged a 12-year career as one of the finer two-way players in the NFL, making the Pro Bowl from 1959-61. He spent nine seasons with the Steelers from 1955-63 before spending three with the Redskins. Reger intercepted 15 passes during his career, including three each in 1964 and 1966 while playing for Washington. He retired at the end of the 1966 season with 20 career fumble recoveries and two defensive touchdowns.

Stenson falls back into pack ATLANTA (AP) — Henrik Stenson was so flawless that he built a nine-shot lead at the turn Saturday in the Tour Championship. Four bogeys in the rain on the back nine at East Lake put him right back where he started the day and injected some hope for Dustin Johnson and a few other players. Stenson made two bogeys on the last three holes — he made a 12-foot par putt on the other — and had to settle for a 1-under 69. That gave him a four-shot lead over Johnson going into the final day of the PGA Tour season. This is far from over — not only the Tour Championship, but the FedEx Cup. Stenson was at 11-under 199, and everyone except for Johnson (7-under 203) and Steve Stricker (5-under 205) were within six shots of him. Johnson made two late birdies and two solid pars, getting up-and-down after a close call with the water on the 17th, and then making a 30-foot par save on the last hole for a 67 that put him in the last group and gave him a chance to see who he was chasing. Stenson is still in great shape to go home with a lot of money — $10 million for winning the FedEx Cup, $1.44 million for winning the Tour Championship. Even if he were to finish third, he still would be in good shape to win the FedEx Cup. Tiger Woods, the No. 1 seed, didn’t make a birdie until he chipped in on the 14th hole. He rallied for a 69, the first time he has broken par all week. Woods was at 3-over 213, 14 shots behind in a tie for 26th.

Singh charging in Hawaii KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) — Vijay Singh shot a 6-under 66 to move into second place after the second round of the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship. Singh, playing his first event on the Champions Tour, moved within one shot of overnight leader Mark Wiebe, who had a 69 Saturday after opening with a 64. Singh carded a 69 in the first round. The three-time major champion and former world No. 1 had six birdies in his bogey-free second round. Corey Pavin (68) and Brian Henninger (67) were three shots back in a tie for third place, while Sandy Lyle (70) and John Cook (66) were a further stroke back.

Fraser takes one shot lead TURIN, Italy (AP) — Marcus Fraser shot a 4-under 68, giving the Australian a one-stroke lead over Italy’s Francesco Molinari, Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts and Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren after three rounds of the Italian Open. Fraser had a chip-in birdie on the sixth hole in a bogey-free round that left him at 11 under. Molinari is trying to capture his national tournament for the second time, having won in Milan in 2006. He became a member of the Golf Club Torino when he was 8 years old. Fraser says he faces a tough closing round with Molinari just one shot behind and the crowd pulling for him. But, he adds, he will have to play his game and “try and spoil the party, I suppose.”

Banged-up 49ers host Colts SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The reeling San Francisco 49ers defense already had plenty to be concerned with this week before the added distraction of Aldon Smith’s arrest. First and foremost: Quarterback Andrew Luck, running back Trent Richardson and the new-look offense of the Indianapolis Colts. The 49ers look to rebound from last week’s tough loss in Seattle with a banged-up lineup. San Francisco will be breaking in a new starting nose tackle against the Colts, has yet to gain clearance for starting rookie safety Eric Reid and has three other key starters who either missed practice or were limited this week with injuries. However, a defense that ranked third in the NFL last season is accustomed to the adversity and welcomes the challenge of a Colts backfield strengthened earlier this week when the team acquired Richardson from the Browns. Smith was arrested Friday morning in San Jose on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession, but it was business as usual for San Francisco’s defense as Smith practiced with the team later in the afternoon.

Vera Bradley to lighten its load BY LINDA LIPP

Look for Fort Wayne-based Vera Bradley Inc. to narrow its focus in the next year or so as it tries to reverse a pattern of slowing sales in its own stores and in the network of independent retailers who carry its products. Among other measures, the company expects to reduce the number and perhaps even the life cycle of the fabrics and styles it produces, cut its specialty retailer network from 3,500 to about 3,000 shops and slow its own plans for opening full-price company stores in favor of opening additional outlet stores. The company also reduced its executive bonuses for the year to zero, based on its lowered revenue and earnings forecast. Retail analyst Oliver Chen of Citi Investment Research said during a telephone interview Sept. 17 the measures the company is taking could be difficult in the short term, “but may be in the long term healthier.” “They’ve needed to right-size, figure out the right organizational framework,” he said. Vera Bradley also is experiencing a bit of a leadership void, Chen noted. CEO

Michael Ray announced in June that he planned to step down, although no replacement has yet been named and in a conference call following the earnings report Ray declined to predict when that would happen. The business also has been operating with an interim chief financial officer, Kevin Sierks, since CFO Jeffrey Blade left the company abruptly in January. And co-founder Patrica Miller retired at the end of last October from the business she and Barbara Bradley Baekgaard founded in 1982, although she remains on its board. Chen was one of three analysts who reduced their price targets for Vera Bradley after the company cut its earnings and revenue forecasts. Chen, who has a neutral rating on the stock, reduced the target to $20 from $25, citing inventory management issues among other factors. Vera Bradley does not respond to analyst reports, a company spokeswoman said. The Fort Wayne-based handbag manufacturer’s shares dropped 10 percent in after-hour trading Sept. 11 on the company’s forecast of revenue for the third quarter between $128 million and $130 million, below estimates of $147 million; and earnings

for the full year of $1.47 to $1.52 per share on sales of $535 million to $540 million, below earnings forecasts of $1.72 per share on revenue of $575 million. The stock dipped as low as $17.50 per share but rebounded within two days to close at $20.11, above its close of $19.45 immediately before the Sept. 11 earnings release. It has continued to trade in the range of $20 in the days since. The company went public in October 2010 with shares priced at $16, and hit its peak in May 2011 when shares topped $52. At current prices, and as retail stocks go, “it is an inexpensive stock but still it’s a profitable company,” Chen said. “They run at a very high operating margin with great long-term potential.” For its second fiscal quarter, Vera Bradley posted net income of $15 million, or 37 cents per share, about 5 cents per share higher than analysts’ expectations. Of concern, however, was the company’s report that while revenue in its direct segment — company-owned stores and its website — increased 14.2 percent as the company has opened 20 new stores, same-store sales decreased 3.7 percent.

Is Your Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Colitis or Crohn’s Disease Getting Worse? -LLS*VUÄULK;V@V\Y6^U/VTL)LJH\ZL6M0[& What you are about to read will annoy and aggravate you. It may even turn your stomach. You see, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Colitis, and Crohn’s are reaching epidemic levels of misdiagnosis and mistreatment is rampant. If you suffer from these conditions and don’t know the information I’m about to reveal to you, you may be setting yourself up for a life of constant pain, suffering, disability and misery. Most doctors have no clue when it comes to IBS, Colitis, and Crohn’s! What’s that? You don’t believe me? These doctors are all trained and know what they are doing. But when it comes to these digestive problems they lack the knowledge and understanding to properly treat this horrible condition. Most of you haven’t improved a whole lot or you wouldn’t be reading this article. I’ll actually tell you exactly what you’ve been going through. I call it “The Digestive dysfunctional loop of crazy.” First, you went to you practitioner, the guy who your HMO made you see because he’s on the list. Anyway, you told him you had constant, unrelenting diarrhea or constipation, constant episodes of gas, fullness and bloating, horrible heartburn, and stomach pain that won’t go away…

especially showing up at the most inopportune times, leading you to wonder if it’s even safe to leave the house and disrupting your daily schedule. You can’t even go about your life because it’s completely getting in the way. You can’t even enjoy the simple things in life anymore, like playing with your children or grandchildren. Getting out of bed everyday is an unbelievable challenge. Life has become unbearable and your schedule has been completely altered. Your GP does a 5 minute exam - NEGATIVE. Abdominal CT scan or MRI - NEGATIVE. Does a few blood tests - NEGATIVE. Maybe even a Colonoscopy - NEGATIVE. Then he tells you he’s done all he can do, you’re gonna have to learn to live with it. You do what he says and guess what? It doesn’t work, it actually gets worse. So you go back, again and again and your GP gives you different drugs, trial and error style. This time it’s a depression or anxiety medication, merely just chasing after an end result of the gastrointestinal problem. (Lots of side effects.) After he’s exhausted his list of “wonder drugs” he tells you it’s all in your head and sends you to a psychiatrist for other opinions. They’ve put you through

months, if not years of grueling tests and issue drugs with horrible side effects. You’re scared, so you do what they tell you to do. We’ve heard it hundreds of times. All the drugs are making things worse. Destroying your liver. Destroying your stomach. Now you hear about some IBS surgery where they literally just take out the part of your intestines. Look, the truth is the doctors you are seeing are excellent, just not for this condition. Drugs and surgery are not the answer. Addressing the root cause is the answer. Pills will help mask the pain, but it won’t correct the problem. We hope this makes sense to you. Well, we are here to tell you there is another choice. A sensible ALL NATURAL non-invasive and safe SIX STEP TREATMENT program. This is giving Irritable Bowel Syndrome sufferers their LIVES BACK with MIRACULOUS results for many. Hi, we are Dr. David and Dr. Lucas Gafken. We are board-eligible chiropractic neurologists and we have spent the last several years researching the functional neurological and nutritional solution to digestive dysfunction.

It starts with flowers Honey begins as flower nectar, which is collected by bees, naturally broken down into simple sugars and stored in honeycombs. The design of the honeycomb and the constant fanning by the bees’ wings causes evaporation, and honey is created. Each bee hive is made up of supers that contain the frames, seen at right, on which the bees make honey. A strong colony will contain about 50,000 bees.

Terry Dalrymple removes a frame full of bees from one of his hives at his rural Angola property. Dalrymple has been

keeping bees for 18 years.


How honey is created Collecting the honey A bee hive, or colony, is made up of supers that contain frames like these on which the bees make honey. After the frames are removed, as seen above, the wax is removed, as seen below.

Making honey, pollinating fruit big business in area, world BY KATHRYN BASSETT




Frames containing honey are placed into an extractor. The honey is extracted by centrifugal force and comes out of the bottom of the tank, where wax and other impurities are filtered out.

Living off the land was a goal of rural Angola resident Terry Dalrymple. “We just wanted to live natural,” he said. “We raised beef and turkeys and chickens and had a big garden and wanted to live off the land and be self-sufficient.” Dalrymple wanted to take things a step further and had read about the health benefits of honey. That’s when he began keeping bees, starting with just two hives. Eighteen years later, Dalrymple has about 170 hives in 18 different locations throughout Steuben County. He also is the vice president of the Northeast Indiana Beekeepers Association and heads the club’s mentoring program. “I handle calls all the time from people wanting help,” Dalrymple said. Dalrymple said he has seen


a growth in the public’s interest in bees, and even having a hive or two is beneficial to the garden and flowers. Dalrymple said no more than 20 hives should be located in a yard, otherwise the yard will be overworked. Dalrymple uses his bees to pollinate a watermelon patch and a blueberry patch in Steuben County. “People were desperate to find somebody to do it,” he said. “There’s more money made in pollination than in raising bees for the honey.” As bees travel from one blossom to the next in search of nectar, they brush against the pollen-bearing parts of flowers and pick up pollen. When a honey bee goes to another flower for more food, some of the pollen from the first flower sticks to the second flower. In this way, the flowers are pollinated. Crops including SEE BEE KEEPING, PAGE C2

Pollination is the process by which pollen is transferred in the reproduction of plants, thereby enabling fertilization and sexual reproduction.






How honey is created

Did you know? • The color and flavor of honey depends on the nectar source, or blossoms, visited by the honey bees. • Typically, lighter-colored honey is milder, and darker-colored honey has a bolder taste. Honey comes in different forms, including liquid, whipped and comb honey.

Terry and Karen Dalrymple sell honey they extract from their hives across Steuben County at the Farmers Market in Angola.

almonds, apples, avocados, blueberries, cantaloupes, cherries, cranberries, cucumbers, sunflowers and watermelon all benefit from honey bees for pollination. Currently, Dalrymple is in the midst of extracting honey from his hives. It takes him an entire month to extract the honey from 300 supers, or hive boxes, that each contain eight frames. He expects to extract 6,000 to 8,000 pounds of honey a year and sells his product at the farmers market in Angola as well as markets in the Fort Wayne area. Honey is only human food produced by insects

According to the National Honey Board, honey is the only food consumed by humans that is produced by insects. It is an entirely natural product and does not

contain additives or preservatives. Honey begins as flower nectar, which is collected by bees, naturally broken down into simple sugars and stored in honeycombs. The design of the honeycomb and the constant fanning by the bees’ wings cause evaporation, and honey is created. Each bee hive or colony is made up of supers that contain the frames on which the bees make honey. A strong colony will contain about 50,000 bees. The bottom supers are known as the brood chambers and are where the queen bee lays her eggs. The bees in a beehive may collectively travel as much as 55,000 miles and visit more than two million flowers to gather enough nectar to make just a pound of honey. A 2012 industry survey by Bee Culture Magazine found an estimated 115,000-125,000 beekeepers in the United States. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, there were 2.62 million U.S. honey bee colonies producing honey in 2012, based on

beekeepers who manage five or more colonies. Honey production in 2012 from producers with five or more colonies totaled 147 million pounds. The 2012 crop was valued at $286.9 million, the USDA reported. Agriculture’s dependence on bees is significant. The USDA has estimated 80 percent of insect crop pollination is accomplished by honey bees. A 1999 Cornell University study reported the direct value of honey bee pollination annually to U.S. agriculture is $19 billion. Auburn family continues beekeeping tradition

The Bassett family of Auburn has been involved in beekeeping, on and off, for more than 60 years. Polly Bassett recalled how her father would keep bees and extract honey on the back porch of their North Indiana Avenue home. The family has continued the tradition of beekeeping and has been extracting and selling honey for about the past 25 years.

At the Bassett honey operation, the extraction takes place in a garage known as the “honey house.” It is heated to about 95 degrees. “We need the honey to be able to flow,” said beekeeper Tom Bassett. “If it’s too thick, it won’t filter very well.” The frames are removed from the super and wax, which has formed over the cells on both sides of the frame, is removed using a hot knife. The frames then are placed into a 33-frame extractor that spins for about 15 to 20 minutes. The honey is extracted by centrifugal force and comes out of the bottom of the tank, where wax and other impurities are filtered out. The honey is pumped into another fine filter to remove the rest of the impurities, then drained into a holding tank. After a couple of weeks, the honey is bottled. By that time, any remaining impurities have risen to the top of the tank, Bassett explained.

Visit with Pastor Griebel a highlight of trip BY GRACE HOUSHOLDER

KENDALLVILLE — At the request of Kendallville area residents, Edgerton’s Travel has created a special trip to Australia and Tasmania, a highlight of which will be time with the Rev. Paul Griebel, and his wife Cindy, in Tasmania. The Griebels served St. John Lutheran Church in Kendallville for many years. “Life is full of surprises,” Paul Griebel said. “And Hobart is one of them! It has a rich history, amazing scenery and lots of friendly, hospitable people. Join us for a worship service on Sunday, and stay for morning tea, where you can mingle and chat with ‘fair dinkum’ Tasmanians and enjoy the view out of our church windows!” Their entire ministry in the

United States was at St. John in Kendallville. Cindy Griebel taught preschool at St. John part-time from 1984 until 1993. At some point the job changed to full-time. She then was the preschool director at the park department from 1994 until 2002. In August 2002, she became the secondgrade teacher at St. John, a position she held until the end of the 2011-2012 school year, when she retired. Prior to coming to Kendallville, the Griebels served in Australia. “We GRACE HOUSHOLDER enjoyed it there,” Cindy This photo of the Rev.

Churches at risk in ‘sue-happy’ society Did you know that in the last 10-15 years, most law schools have added a new course of study? It has been developed to help future attorneys guide people to sue nonprofit organizations — like your church. I don’t mean to frighten you, but I sure hope I have your attention! The number of lawsuits against churches is growing rapidly in this country. In years past, the church, as a benevolent organization, was somewhat immune to legal attacks. Not anymore. With the high-profile publicity of clergy accused of molesting children, the attitude of the public toward the church has changed dramatically. You may have noticed some of the changes in your church: background checks for those who work in the children’s Sunday school, and strict lock-down procedures for the church nursery. We live in a different world than it was 50 years ago. With the decline of influence of the church, Christianity has become marginalized. In previous decades, Christianity was considered to be part of the mainstream backbone of American heritage. Today, we live in a religiously pluralistic society. The Christian Church is just one of many options in the faith life of U.S. citizens. In a previous era, churches could put up signs directing people

to their places of worship. Now, those same churches must adhere to strict codes like everyone else. I often see increased political prejudice against the church. As a known consultant for churches, I’ve served as a expert witness for the defense in several court cases targeting churches. Many Christians are naive to these realities. Many churches operate each THE week with of CHURCH dozens risks around DOCTOR their facilities and even among the Kent Hunter way their staff and leaders respond to the needs of individuals and their service to their communities. Here are a few thoughts: • The Bible calls churches to be good stewards of their resources. A “steward” is a good manager, who takes care of the affairs of his master. Jesus told stories to teach the importance of being a good manager. • The Bible also says that followers of Jesus are to be as “wise as serpents and as harmless as doves.” That language simply tells us

not to be naive. The loving, accepting qualities of being a Christian are no excuse for being naive, uninformed and unprepared. We need to do our homework and reduce, whenever possible, the risk that comes with being negligent in church matters. A $3-4 million dollar lawsuit — even if you win — will ruin most churches. • There are people trained in risk management. There are also those specifically trained in risk management for nonprofits. Finally, there are those who are trained (and certified) in risk management for churches. The cost to your church is a wise investment and good stewardship of God’s resources. If I were to consult your church, you can be assured I would make a recommendation that you contract with a certified risk management expert who works with churches. Why? What you do is too important to be ruined by some sue-happy person who sees an opportunity to drain your resources — the resources God has entrusted to your church. KENT HUNTER is known as

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips

Driver learns to put phone out of reach

DEAR ABBY: The other day, while backing out of a parking space, I nearly hit a woman who was walking behind my car with her toddler son. I didn’t see them because I was dialing my cellphone and was distracted. The woman rightfully yelled at me to pay attention and get off my phone, and although she was gracious and encouraged me to consider it a “wake-up call,” I didn’t react as kindly to her out of embarrassment. Instead, I became defensive and didn’t apologize, even though it was my fault. I shudder to think of what might have happened, and I admit this wasn’t the first close call I’ve had. I’m a married mother of two and should know better. While I can’t go back and find her, I hope the woman sees this letter. I want her to know that because of that incident, I now lock my purse and phone in the trunk or place them on the backseat out of reach before I start my car. This way, I avoid the temptation to look at messages or make a call. I have also asked my kids to keep me accountable by reminding me if I happen to forget. They will be driving in a few years, and I want to set a good example for them. Please pass this idea along — especially to moms like me who try to multitask in the car. — HANDS ON THE WHEEL IN CALIFORNIA DEAR HANDS ON THE WHEEL: Your suggestion of placing your purse and phone on the backseat out of reach is a good one. You are really lucky you didn’t kill or seriously injure that mother and her child. Regardless of whether or not the woman sees your letter, I hope it will remind other drivers of the danger of driving while distracted. And while I’m on the subject, I read an article recently that discussed distracted WALKING. According to U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, this has caused an increase in pedestrian deaths. In 2011, more than 1,500 pedestrians were treated in emergency rooms because of injuries they suffered while using a portable electronic device. The safest course of action for drivers AND pedestrians is to do only one thing at a time, and to be fully present while doing it. DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for 13 years, and I often wonder how to fill out questionnaires that ask my marital status. I have recently started checking “single” because enough time seems to have passed, and I don’t define myself by my divorce. However, now I’m wondering if there’s a certain etiquette recommended. — STATUS UNKNOWN IN OHIO DEAR STATUS UNKNOWN: Honesty is recommended. As much as you might like to present yourself that way, you are no longer single. Calling yourself single is dishonest. As someone who has been married and divorced, you are a divorcee — and you will be until you remarry. Saying you are single is a misrepresentation of the facts. DEAR ABBY: I have a son-in-law whom I hate to ask questions. He goes into so much detail that I’m always sorry I asked. Is there any way to make him get to the point? — LIKES IT BRIEF DEAR LIKES IT BRIEF: Yes. Explain that when he goes into so much detail, you can remember only 10 percent of what he says, so please get to the point. And when he forgets, remind him.

Try pumpkin fudge this fall We feel blessed to have received some much needed rain tonight. It wasn’t that much but it will help. We haven’t had any rain in quite some time, so everything was dry. Today daughters Susan and Verena and I went to sister Emma’s house to assist them in preparing for the upcoming church services they will host at their house. Lord willing, daughters Elizabeth and Susan will be baptized that day. Susan’s special friend Mose will also be baptized with them. What a blessing to see them want to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. Last Friday we had four calves delivered here. All four together weighed 785 pounds. We put them in the barn. When Joe came home he moved them to an outside pen. With it being a new place to the calves they were pretty wild and two of them escaped through the fence. Joe and Susan were able to catch one but the other one took off for the woods behind us. Joe and the children and some of our neighbors looked all over and only heard from one person that saw it. After three and a half hours of searching they finally gave up. In the next few days Joe and the boys kept looking

and no sign of the calf. Before we came home from helping Emma, the neighbor boy ran over to let Joe know he spotted the calf. Joe, Benjamin and Joseph took off to try to capture it. When they got closer the calf took off but Benjamin was able to catch up it and THE with wrestled it to AMISH the ground COOK and took a rope and held it down Lovina Eicher until Joe and Joseph caught up. So now five days later it is finally back in our barn and looks like it’s still doing OK. We had almost given up and we thought that we would never see it again. I think Joe and I will sleep much better tonight knowing that calf is back in the barn. It was also a worry that it could get out on a road and cause an accident. The reason Joe wanted the calves to feed out, is that

DEAR BRUCE: I understand that money in only a husband’s or wife’s name can still be claimed (shared) by the other in a divorce. Can an inheritance gift to a person remain the sole property of that person to whom it was given and held outside of the sharing in the event of a divorce? — Gordon, via email DEAR GORDON: There is no absolute answer to your question. It depends on the laws of the state where the divorce is being sought. If there is a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial, that could put the money aside as the sole property of the one person; it’s not a matter under ordinary circumstances to be considered in a divorce. In general, if an inheritance is received during the marriage, the monies are considered to be property of both and are very likely to be shared in a divorce. DEAR BRUCE: I’m

wondering how to go about pursuing an idea for an invention I have. It’s related to the fitness industry. This would require manufacturing some small devices and trying to sell/ lease them to gyms. SMART large I think the MONEY idea is pretty good, but I’m stumped Bruce Williams as to where to go from here.

we are getting 400 bushels of corn that we are trading with a nearby farmer for our beans. Whenever the calves get big enough we will keep one or two to butcher for our beef and sell the rest. I told the children not to give the calves names or to make pets out of them because they will be our food someday. I still remember when I was a young girl at home dad butchered one of our old milk cows named Whitey. Some of us children had a hard time eating the beef that year because we used to milk Whitey and we didn’t want to eat her. When daughter Elizabeth was younger and she saw us butcher chickens it dawned on her that that’s where chicken comes from. It took her a long time before she could eat chicken again. That’s farm life, I guess. Pumpkin season will soon be here. Try this fudge:

Pumpkin Fudge • 3 cups white sugar • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract • 1 cup milk • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

• 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice • 1/2 cup butter Butter or grease one 8x8 inch pan. In a 3-quart saucepan, mix together sugar, milk, corn syrup, pumpkin and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling. Do not stir. When mixture registers 232 degrees F (110 degrees C) on candy thermometer, or forms a soft ball when dropped into cold water, remove pan from heat. Stir in pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and butter. Cool to lukewarm (110 degrees F or 43 degrees C on candy thermometer). Beat mixture until it is very thick and loses some of its gloss. Quickly pour into a greased 8x8 inch pan.

• deal of time to pursue. Let’s assume that you have a great idea for a device. The first stop should be a patent attorney to determine if it is something that can be protected by a patent. Answering that question itself can be costly — anywhere from $1,200 to $2,500 just to get an opinion on whether it’s protectable. Let’s assume it is. The next question is, are you prepared to spend another $3,000 to $5,000 or more to file for a patent to protect

your notion? Once that is done and the patent is granted, at least you’ll have a reasonable opportunity to explore selling it. You asked about the services that offer to help. In my opinion, they should be avoided. I know what I’ve outlined is expensive, but unfortunately, that is part of the reason so many ideas remain in the idea stage.

Wine, beer can benefit some people’s health Everyone knows that “we are what we eat.” But since we are really mostly water, I think it might be more accurate to say that we are what we drink. When I thought of this subject, I admit that my mind immediately went to terms like water boy, beer belly, wino and even O.J. Simpson. However, I was unable to weave them into the narrative. Drinking eight glasses of water per day has been recommended for a long time with little or no scientific evidence to back it up. But a Brown University survey of 48,000 men has found that those who drank more than about 10 glasses of water a day had a 24 percent lower risk of contracting bladder cancer. This could be because the liquid flushes any cancercausing agents out of the bladder before they are able to cause any harm. Daily orange juice plus a healthy helping of carrots can reduce the risk of developing heart disease and cancer by nearly 40 percent, according to two separate studies. Just two glasses a

day of OJ can dramatically reduce high blood pressure, cutting the risk of developing diseased coronary arteries by up to 20 percent. A study from DR. TERRY Harvard University GAFF found that women who drink just four small glasses of wine per week increase their risk of developing breast cancer by 15 percent. This confirmed the link between alcohol consumption and breast cancer, as it is thought that up to one fifth of cases are caused by drinking to excess. The researchers believe that alcohol affects levels of the hormone estrogen, which is known to provoke some forms of breast cancer. On the other hand, a study showed that women who drink wine are less likely to gain weight than those who drink no alcohol.

You cannot control others, but you most certainly can handle how you go about life and loss. It’s the greatest gift … you help others and you can’t help but feel like you made a positive difference in others thus making you feel encouraged and worthwhile. Be the difference in others that you wish you had when going through pain. Love and caring are contagious, so spread that instead of spreading misery because that doesn’t do a bit of good for anyone.

The suggestion is that the body may use calories from alcohol in a different way than other foods. Those who drank red wine gained the least weight with greater weight gain associated with beer and liquor. The report said there was no clear connection between alcohol consumption and weight gain. Another clinical trial has also discovered that red wine can help to combat obesity, and reduce the risk of disease in the elderly as well. The compound resveratrol, found in red wine, mulberries and peanuts, can lower the metabolism and reduce levels of liver fat, blood pressure and blood sugar. Other research into the drinking habits of 200,000 people confirmed that two glasses of wine a day for men and one for women cut their risk of cardiovascular disease by a third compared to non-drinkers. But the results also showed that a large glass of beer with five percent alcohol gave similar protection. The researchers are unsure about whether the benefit comes from the

• alcohol or other substances in the drinks. According to the National Institute of Health, beer helps to strengthen the bones and prevent fractures in old age. It is a significant source of silicon, which is a key ingredient of the diet that helps to improve bone mineral density. Previous studies have also suggested that a regular glass or two of beer may help to prevent osteoporosis. Alcohol consumption may decrease both the risk for and severity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). People who had drunk alcohol most frequently had symptoms that were less severe than those who had never drunk alcohol or only drank it infrequently. X-rays showed there was less damage to their joints, blood

tests showed lower levels of inflammation, as well as less joint pain, swelling and disability. This finding agrees with the results from previous studies that have shown a decreased susceptibility to developing RA among alcohol drinkers. On the non-alcohol side, research found evidence that drinking five or more fizzy drinks per week makes teenagers more likely to act violently and carry a weapon. Those who drank 14 cans per week were twice as likely to behave violently towards friends, partners or siblings. The study showed that 43 percent of teenagers who drank 14 or more cans per week had carried a gun or knife, compared with just

23 percent who drank one or fewer cans. Drinking those sugary drinks also often meant a greater chance of diabetes, but that is not true of diet versions or other artificially-sweetened drinks, coffee or tea, as was previously thought. A large study showed that those who drank the most sugar-sweetened beverages (about one a day on average) were 16 percent more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes than those who never drank them.

Turkey Talk Line to add men NEW YORK (AP) — This year if you call Butterball’s Turkey Talk Line for some cooking advice, you might get a male voice on the line. For the first time, Butterball is enlisting the help of men as well as women for its Turkey Talk Line during the holidays. And the turkey seller is seeking the first male talk-line spokesman this year as well. The talk line, which is 32 years old this year, has long offered advice to anyone overwhelmed by making the perfect turkey for Thanksgiving Day and the rest of the year-end holiday season. It has been improving its services, last year launching a smartphone app, Facebook live chats, Pinterest posts and other social media tools. But the line, which has grown from six operators to about 60 since it launched in 1981, has never hired men before. The company says it wasn’t specifically excluding men, but it usually relied on word-of-mouth to hire its talk line operators and its hires were always women. Now, it’s taking a more active approach. “It’s the perfect time, because we have seen more and more men involved in Thanksgiving dinner,” said Mary Clingman, director of the Butterball Turkey line. When the talk line started, only about 9 percent of calls that came in were from men. But now, about one in every four

Butterball, based in Garner, N.C., will offer an online application for men age 25 and up to apply to be the spokesman for the line or one of the operators, via its Facebook page.

operators should live near Chicago, where the hotline is operated. The online application is available now through Oct. 20. Most operators have a background in food or nutrition and have culinary degrees or are dietitians, food stylists or scientists. They all take a crash course in turkey

making at the Butterball University training program, as well. But the main requirement: “You have to want to help people,” Clingman says. The talk line will be staffed during business hours in November and December, reaching up to 1 million turkey makers via all of its channels.

Hardest part of fostering pets: saying goodbye LOS ANGELES (AP) — You nurse and nurture, live with and love an animal in your home. After a few weeks or months, you turn it over to someone or return it to a shelter. Watching a foster pet leave the nest can be rewarding, but you are probably still going to cry your eyes out. A foster home is a place where pets get a chance to heal or come of age or learn how to be social. It leaves room at the shelter for another dog or cat. Fostering is hard work and takes time, patience and dedication, but knowing you are raising and training a pet for someone else can be equal parts gratification and heartbreak. Beth Stern, chairwoman for the North Shore Animal League America foster program, has fostered several litters of cats. She says she can tell you what each one likes to eat, where they like to be rubbed and their favorite toys. She house trains them and keeps meticulous records for adopters. She and husband, talk show host and “America’s Got Talent” judge Howard Stern, had planned to take just one litter. “My husband and I had a ball. He named every one of

them, photographed them and started talking about them on his radio show,” Stern said. She shared photos and stories about them on Facebook and Twitter and on North Shore’s website. Adoption applications started arriving at North Shore in bunches. When the day came for the new owners to be notified, and the kittens returned to the shelter

to be spayed and neutered, Stern said it “was one of the hardest days of my life.” “I was crying like a baby,” she said. While she said goodbye to six kittens, she ultimately said hello to 10 new ones. The applications keep on coming so Stern said she plans to keep on fostering. And while she and her husband already have four adult

cats, she said they’ll probably adopt another one — a blind cat at the shelter who will likely be hard to place. Fosters are an indispensable component for shelters, but there’s a lot of turnover, she said, because of so-called foster failures — people who fall in love with their foster pets and adopt them. When a foster becomes an adopter, no one minds, Buchwald said, but it does leave shelters on a constant lookout for new fosters. There is no question that saying goodbye is the most difficult part of fostering, she said, and this list might help encourage people who are considering it: —Remember you are saving lives. Without foster homes, more animals will have to be euthanized. —Remember the goal — to help foster pets find loving, forever homes. —Learn to celebrate successful adoptions. —Don’t feel guilty. Animals are resilient and adaptable. —Start or join a foster support network. —Take a break so you don’t burn out. —Cherish the memories.

and Hugh Jackman in a scene from “Prisoners.�

Intense ‘Prisoners’ is worth the cringing I’ll be the first to admit that I was afraid to go see “Prisoners,� and there were moments I wished I were in a different theater, watching something much lighter and more fun. But I don’t regret watching this incredibly intense movie. In fact, it was a truly JENNY interesting, edge-ofKOBIELA- your-seat experiMONDOR ence, from dreadful beginning to delightful open ending. It’s chock-full of compelling performances, thought-provoking moral quandries and a dense mystery that, while a little schlocky at moments, is still fascinating as it unravels. “Prisoners� opens with the abduction of two little girls, Anna (Erin Gerasmiovich) and Joy (Kyla Drew Simmons) on Thanksgiving Day. A man in an RV is quickly apprehended, but when the search turns up nothing and the police, led by Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal), are forced to release Alex Jones (Paul Dano), Anna’s father, Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) takes the law into his own hands and abducts Alex to question him, involving Joy’s parents, Franklin (Terrence Howard) and Nancy (Viola Davis) in his scheme. Meanwhile, Detective Loki is working within the law to unravel the mystery of the disappearance of Anna and Joy. “Prisoners� is about people dealing with a horrible tragedy. Keller feels he must do


something, while Franklin and Nancy are complicit in his crimes but reluctant to get their hands dirty. Anna’s mother, Grace (Maria Bello), meanwhile, just sleeps most of the time. As time winds on and the hopes of finding their children alive wanes, their reactions get more intense. But what really makes “Prisoners� interesting to watch is the dichotomy between Detective Loki, who works by the book, and Keller, who doesn’t. It’s uncomfortable to watch Keller grimly torture Alex — he takes no real pleasure in it — because torture is tough to see, but it’s even worse to watch because it’s so easy to sympathize with him, too. I think of the parents I know, all of whom intensely love their children, and I can’t help but wonder if they’d go to the same lengths if they thought it was the only way to save their children’s lives. The movie can hinge on the actions of these two men in part because the actors’ performances are so incredible. Hugh Jackman brings a restless energy to the role of Keller. He seems to be pacing, even when he’s sitting still, and the energy builds and builds until he clearly can’t take it anymore and he lashes out, violently. Jake Gyllenhaal, meanwhile, gives a masterfully understated performance. Often, it’s just a twitch of his lips or a few rapid blinks of his eyes, but there are a million tiny ways that he shows how intensely he cares. It’s never clear, though, if his top motivation is to actually find the missing girls, or simply to solve the case. And that’s another one of the things that makes “Prisoners� such

• a wonderful movie. So much is unclear, even at the end of the movie, and by leaving the audience hanging a little bit, it forces us to really think about the characters. I love it when movies give me the chance to draw a few of my own conclusions, rather than spoonfeeding every detail. Don’t get me wrong, “Prisonersâ€? is a tough one to watch. I don’t think I could watch it if I had a young daughter of my own, and even without being a parent, there were moments that were almost too much for me.

Auburn’s 211 E. 6th deserves another 100 years BY JOHN BRY

One can only say so much in 700 words about a historic home, a friend, and a neighbor: 211 E. 6th St., in Auburn represents all three of those qualities. It also does not take a rocket scientist to determine this local landmark is surrounded by property that would be tempting to create a parking lot stretching from 6th Street to 7th Street. That idea has all the excitement of … well, an asphalt parking lot. Why does this residence deserve a better fate than concrete, yellow striping and lackluster low maintenance shrubbery? Here are just two reasons why 211 East 6th deserves another 100 years in the Classic City. We all have had those neighbors we just love in the platonic sense. They are personalities that make any neighborhood special. Sylvia Widmeyer is one of those people. She has endured a parade of endless contractors coming and going from her driveway, thanks to her neighbor (me), clears the snow from our walks before the crack of dawn, keeps a watchful eye on the neighborhood, and is an all-around kind person. Her smile is contagious, and her welcoming spirit makes the neighborhood special. I don’t think we would get the same warm and fuzzy vibe from a slab of asphalt. The historic home is worthy of preservation. Not every old building is considered unique, but this one fits the definition. It may shock a few folks who “think” they know me, but

History abounds at 211 E. 6th St., Auburn.

there are some places even I would rev up the bulldozer — but not in this instance. This particular home started life as a barn: A horse harboring, cow conclave, chicken coop of a barn located smack dab in the middle of Auburn. However, attorney John W. Baxter, and his Purdue engineering educated son George, had other ideas for the former bovine bungalow. George would oversee the transformation of the barn into a residence around 1904 for the Baxter Family. John Baxter was the first president of the Zimmerman Manufacturing Company when it incorporated. If you are a native Auburnite you should

know there were three early auto companies in town, (Auburn: aka the Eckharts, McIntyre, and Zimmerman). The Baxter clan also included daughter Mary who served as assistant principal of Auburn High School, and served on the board of the Eckhart Library during its construction. Son Frank would practice law with his father but was killed in a hotel fire in Fort Wayne. George Baxter eventually took up full possession of 211 East 6th following the deaths of his parents. George’s wife was the incredible Jessie (Boland) Baxter. Jessie was a dynamo in the YMCA with the Canteen, and a force

to be reckoned with as a leader in the local Red Cross. She was also the niece of Frank Eckhart. If that name rings a bell, please see above. Also, in an odd twist of fate, George Baxter would pass away 70 years to the day to his brother Frank. The Baxter Family would call 211 home until Sylvia Widmeyer acquired it in 1989. She knew the house well from her childhood. “I love the downtown location. When I first toured the house, the sunlight was coming in the west dining room window. It gave such a warm feeling to the house … it felt like home,” Sylvia said.

Frank and George Baxter are pictured as young boys. Frank Baxter practiced law with his father John until being killed in a hotel fire in Fort Wayne in 1907. George Baxter would go on to study engineering at Purdue and he is considered to be responsible for transforming the Baxter home from barn to home.

There are many things special about the house from its history to all of its unusual details. Sylvia points to a few of her favorites such as the cedar lined closets, beautiful woodwork, open staircase, a built-in dressing table and a bedroom with a wall sized blackboard. Talk about home schooling. It may not be the most ornate home, but it holds a broader story from its occupants, both past and

present. They are all part of the fabric that defines a community. It is a reason why one of the city’s streets bears the name “Baxter.” The Baxters were also good neighbors in their own time just like Sylvia Widmeyer. The home is something a parking lot with low maintenance shrubbery should never replace. JOHN BRY is the DeKalb County historian. Contact him at

Many factors when shopping for tile Q. What’s the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile? I have heard conflicting explanations from flooring stores. — Ted of Butler A. There is a lot to learn about ceramic tile (generic name associated with tile). Tile can come in several forms common to consumers: ceramic, porcelain, glass tile, quarry tile and natural stone. We will stick to the two most closely related tiles, ceramic and porcelain. Ceramic tile is made by combining earth clays and quartz sand, then formed and fired hard in a kiln. Most are covered before firing with a glaze that some call a design SQUARE layer that determines the tile’s nished color and texture. The CORNERS fibottom is usually brown, red or white clay. Unglazed tiles are Jeff Deahl generally called terra cotta tiles and are very porous. Ceramic tile made with recycled materials are becoming more widely available with the green movement. Glazed ceramic tile is durable and long-lasting, easy to clean and does not absorb odors or bacteria. Ceramic tile does have a moisture absorption rate making it less stain, moisture and frost resistant. Porcelain tile is a variety of ceramic tile, made from finer, ground sand or quartz and highly refined purified clays. They are processed at a much higher temperature and pressure than ceramic tile. The finished product is a glass-like tile that is denser and has a much lower moisture absorption rate than ceramic tile, making it resistant to water and staining. Sometimes it is glazed to giver it extra durability and hardness usually intended for exterior applications. Some things to look for when shopping for tile is its absorption rate, its hardness of density rating and certifications by tile certification agencies or The Porcelain Enamel Institute. The PEI will rate class 1 (no foot traffic, wall use only) through class 5 (heavy to extra heavy traffic, all residential, commercial and institutional use). Today, with all the imports, it is tough to find the differences between tiles. Keep in mind that wall tile is rated for walls and not floors. Floor tiles will work for either floor or walls. Some tiles can be very slippery making them not suited for wet floor applications. Usually small tiles will be more durable than large tiles and thicker tile will be less likely to crack. Porcelain tile, being harder and denser, makes it harder to cut and work with — not typically a do-it-yourself application. Regardless of your tile choice for your project, you will find an endless variety of shapes, sizes, colors and styles. You can add some detail by adding accent tiles or borders that can be metal, glass or granite or different colors. You can be creative with patterns diagonal or vertical and multiple shapes and sizes.

Learn to hang art like the museum pros My museum training allows me to offer some advice to those of you who hang paintings, prints or pictures on your walls. Rule 1: Make a design plan. Even a simple plan will help you hang art in style. Draw a simple picture of the blank wall. Measure the wall. Give yourself, depending on the size of the wall, at least 6 to 12 inches of blank space at the beginning and end of the wall. Make certain that you are not squeezing a big piece into a small space. Unite unrelated objects by framing them in the same way/same frame design, same frame wood or color, same size. If you have art or antique collections on display, display enough pieces to ensure that you can carry the visual space of an entire wall. Don’t forget about your furniture. Furniture positioned beneath works of art has an impact on that wall, too. Remember an overstuffed club chair, delicate feminine settee or clean-lined wooden bench add visual information to the wall upon which you have hung artwork. Don’t disregard the furniture when hanging art.

How high is too high? Objects arranged in odd numbers provide pleasant visual symmetry.

Symmetry, like three black and white photographs in a row is pleasing to the eye. Arranging objects in odd numbers can help you make ugly spaces look good. There is a reason why art looks better in museums than in most homes. In museums, framed works of art have their center point hung no higher than five feet. If the center is ART & higher than 60 ANTIQUES inches, then most museum designers Dr. Lori consider that artwork hung too high. The rule of thumb is not to exceed 60 inches high at a painting’s center. This is, for most people, a comfortable viewing height. Most people are surprised to learn that Americans, unlike Europeans, tend to hang art much too high. Museum curators also take patrons in wheelchairs and children into consideration when hanging art exhibitions. So, in your home, you may want to hang works of art at a pleasing level for


Don’t squeeze a massive piece of art into a tight area with a low ceiling.

all members of your family. If you are hanging framed works of art in a children’s room or playroom, you may want to consider your 4-year-old’s eye level — not an adult’s eye level.

Don’t be hammer happy When hanging a work of art, be sure to measure twice before reaching for that hammer. That hammer can prove lethal to your design scheme and your drywall, so don’t use it unless you are sure. Artwork deserves a secure hook

that relates to the weight of your piece. Don’t hang your painting on an old nail or screw. Eventually, a nail will give way and your painting will hit the floor and damage the floor, the wall and the art. Every work of art needs proper hardware for the drywall, plaster, artwork and the frame. Don’t cram many works of art onto one wall. Art needs blank space around it or visual breathing room. Massive works of art require high ceilings and blank areas free of visual obstacles like chair rails or wainscoting or low ceilings.

“The rule of thumb is not to exceed 60 inches high at a painting’s center. This is, for most people, a comfortable viewing height. Most people are surprised to learn that Americans, unlike Europeans, tend to hang art much too high.”

• When it comes to hanging artwork, think like a museum pro. DR.

Plant chives in rich soil, sunny location KNOWLEDGE TO GROW Karen Weiland

Chives are a member of the lily family and are grown for the many uses of their leaves and flowers. Both onion and garlic chives are grown and used much alike. The hollow, round leaves of onion chives, as the name implies, gives an onion flavor when added to foods. The leaves of garlic chives differ in that they are flat and add a garlic flavor to foods. Garlic chives are sometimes also called Chinese chives. Plant chives in rich, well-drained soil and a sunny location. They like plenty of compost or a good slow-release fertilizer at planting time. They

will not need much care other than water until their roots have established. If you harvest often, apply a liquid fertilize every three to four weeks. Onion chives produce purple globe flowers and the garlic chives will have many small white flowers. By keeping the flowers snipped the plant will produce more leaves. Cut the plants back to the ground after a few freezes have occurred in late fall. Chives grow in clumps and can be divided in the spring. Garlic chives will reseed themselves generously, and I mean generously! They produce such pretty flowers,

but in those flowers are many seeds. If you are going to grow them, place them in an area so they can take off without them obtaining a weed status. That happened to me. I had to dig up all the “stray” plants. Of course if you snip the flowers off you will not have that problem. Neem or insecticidal soap can be used to rid the plant of aphids. Spray thoroughly, getting down into the crown of the clump. Watch for aphids during the growing season, but especially in the spring. Avoid harvesting the leaves on a newly planted chive until the second year. This gives the

blacktop driveway is tamped in by hand and can crack more than 1/2 inch and break apart especially when heavy vehicles are driven over it. BUILDER’S RESPONSIBILITY: None DISCUSSION: As the hand-tamped edges of a driveway dries, it is normal for it to shrink and crack. Typically, the final grade is held down 1 to 2 inches from the top surface of the driveway, and as moisture and dirt attach themselves to the edges, cracks can increase in size and start to chip away.

Too often, undefined expectations create problems between builders and customers before, during and after their building and remodeling projects. Addressing some of the most prevalent issues, a set of Quality Assurance Builder Standards provide new and remodeling homeowners a way to measure the quality of their projects against an industry-approved set of standards. These standards help eliminate problems before the project even begins.

Slag aggregate offers a durable material that will hold up under heavy truck traffic and provide long service life, and at a very reasonable cost.
