Fuel leak declared an emergency County needs to pay for cleanup BY AARON ORGAN

AUBURN — The DeKalb County Commissioners on Monday declared a fuel spill at the county highway department on 19th Street an emergency, allowing the county to pay for a cleanup using cumulative capital development dollars. Last week the DeKalb County Council approved paying an

environmental consultant $104,611 to determine what level of spill occurred from an above-ground tank on the property. The spill was discovered this summer. State law says cumulative capital development funds can be tapped for such projects, if an emergency exists. The commissioners voted unanimously Monday to deem the situation an emergency, citing health concerns and the danger of

fuel leaching into Cedar Creek. “Due to the health hazard, it is an emergency,” said Commissioner Don Grogg. DeKalb County Homeland Security director Roger Powers told the council last week that 524 tons of contaminated soil have been excavated from the site, leaving a hole 40-by-44 feet and 8 feet deep. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has taken over investigation of the leak. Also Monday, the commis-

Former police officer to stand trial for theft BY KATHRYN BASSETT

AUBURN —A DeKalb County jury will hear the case of a former local police officer who is accused of obtaining military surplus items through his department and selling some of them for personal gain. Sean L. Kahkola, of the 15000 block of Towne Park Run, Huntertown, is charged with two counts of theft, both Class D felonies. Kahkola had been a Garrett police officer from 1997 through 2005. He joined the Auburn Police Department in 2005 and resigned from the Auburn force April 16, 2012. Monday, Kahkola, his

attorney, Kevin Likes, and special prosecutor Joe Rowe appeared for a final pre-trial conference in DeKalb Superior Court I. The parties did not reach a plea agreement, and Judge Kevin Wallace confirmed a two-day jury trial will begin Dec. 3. According to court documents, in 2005, Kahkola helped the Auburn Police Department obtain a 1988 Chevy pickup through a program that gives police departments items the federal government no longer wants, free of charge. By Jan. 5, 2006, Kahkola was listed on the truck’s title as its owner, according to court documents. On July 28, 2008,

Kahkola sold the truck to his parents for $500. The second theft charge relates to the sale of a 2002 camper that Kahkola also procured while he was a police officer in Auburn. A second police officer, Michael S. Kahkola Reneau of Garrett, was a co-defendant in the case. Earlier this year, Reneau pleaded guilty to theft, a Class D felony, as part of a plea agreement filed in DeKalb Superior Court I. In April, Wallace

sentenced Reneau to three years of incarceration, all suspended, and three years of probation, as called for by the plea agreement. Reneau had been a sergeant with the Garrett Police Department until he resigned in July 2012. He had been with the department for 18 years. Reneau was accused of selling two portable, gas-powered generators owned by the city of Garrett to another Garrett resident for $100. According to court documents, Reneau never repaid the city of Garrett the money he made from selling the generators and had not received permission to sell them.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman said he is leading a bipartisan group of representatives in urging members of the Farm Bill conference committee to include due process protections for organic producers. “When small farmers face legal threats from the Department of Agriculture, they deserve nothing less than a fair and full hearing process,” Stutzman said. “Unfortunately, until Congress comes together to protect farmers, certified organic producers have no guarantee to a fair defense if the USDA suspends their license. My colleagues and I urge the conference committee to include the Senate’s due process protections for organic producers in the Farm Bill. It’s time for Congress to protect organic farmers.” Stutzman said under current law, an organic producer must obtain certification from a certifying agent accredited by the USDA. He said without a change to the law, a producer whose license has been suspended is not guaranteed an administrative appeal after receiving a ruling from an administrative law judge and before receiving a final judicial appeal.

Briefs • Civil rights leaders meet with Macy’s NEW YORK (AP) — The Rev. Al Sharpton said he and other civil rights leaders had a “brutally honest” meeting Monday with the CEO of Macy’s over racial profiling, and demanded that the department store lay out how they will guarantee the practice doesn’t happen before the holiday shopping season begins. The meeting on Monday with CEO Terry Lundgren follows an incident in which an actor on the HBO series “Treme” was detained by police after buying his mother a $1,350 Movado watch. Robert Brown filed a lawsuit last month after he said he was stopped inside Macy’s flagship Manhattan store last June because he is black. Brown’s accusation came after two other black shoppers said they were racially profiled and detained by police after making expensive purchases at Barneys New York. In a statement, Macy’s said it doesn’t tolerate discrimination of any kind and “considers its loss prevention policies to be among the very best and most progressive in the retailing industry.” In the meeting with Sharpton, “the company reiterated its deep commitment to diversity and inclusion,” the statement said, adding that the company expressed its intention to hold itself to high standards in dealing with customers and law enforcement to provide the best shopping experience. Sharpton, who met with the CEO of Barneys last week, said civil rights leaders felt “particularly offended” over allegations concerning Macy’s, citing a $600,000 settlement that Macy’s reached with the New York attorney general in 2005 over racial profiling complaints. The store had also agreed to change its security practices. “This was a particularly biting meeting because we frankly resented having to come here again,” he said.

‘Duck Dynasty’ cast to appear at holiday parade NEW YORK (AP) — There will be a strong helping of duck at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade — “Duck Dynasty,” that is. The reality show sensations will be among the celebrities appearing at the annual event in New York City. They’ll join Ariana Grande, Jimmy Fallon and the Roots, Florida Georgia Line, Cirque du Soliel and several other acts on the famous parade floats. Macy’s says more than 8,000 people will participate in the event, and 3.5 million are expected to watch from the sidelines. That doesn’t count the millions more who watch it on TV. This year, Snoopy and Woodstock will be among the balloons, as well as Toothless from “How to Train Your Dragon.”

Islamic militant takes credit for battle MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — A Nigerian Islamic militant leader with an American $7-million bounty on his head boasts in a new video obtained Monday that he commanded the Oct. 23 battle that killed at least 127 people — a show of strength in the face of a nearly six-month-long military crackdown. All but two victims were combatants killed during five hours of fierce fighting in the Yobe state capital, Damaturu. It was the first major attack in months on an urban center during an Islamic uprising that has terrorized northeast Nigeria. Security forces swiftly freed major towns under the sway of the religious extremists after a state of emergency imposed in mid-May. But they have been struggling to hunt down Boko Haram militants in hideouts in local forests and caves and across borders with Cameroon, Chad and Niger, from which they emerge to attack schools and villages. Hundreds of civilians, mainly Muslims, have been killed by the militants in recent weeks, with some 40 killed in recent days.

Hackers expose limo activities BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

An Internet security firm says a limousine software company has been hacked, exposing credit card numbers and potentially embarrassing details about close to one million customers, including politicians, star athletes and corporate executives. Alex Holden, chief information security officer of Milwaukee-based Hold Security, says he discovered the breach at Corporatecaronline more than a month ago. He said he informed the owner of the Kirkwood, Mo.-based software company that customers’ credit card numbers, pickup and drop-off information, and other personal details had been stolen. “The privacy implications of this are very disturbing,” Holden said Monday. Car services buy software from Corporatecaronline and use it to streamline reservations, dispatching and payments. Owner Dan Leonard did not return a call to his company for comment Monday from The Associated Press. Cybersecurity blogger Brian Krebs, working with Hold Security, first reported the hack on his website, including details dispatchers gave to drivers heading out to pick up celebrity passengers. For example, Krebs reported a chauffeur driving Tom Hanks to a Chicago restaurant for dinner was advised the client was a “VVIP” who required “No cell/radio use” by the driver. A chauffeur meeting Latin American textile magnate Josue Christiano Gomes da Silva inside

an airport luggage claim area with a printed sign was warned: “SUPER VIP CLIENT. EVERYTHING MUST BE PERFECT!” Other customers include Donald Trump, who required a new car with a clear front seat; LeBron James, who was picked up at an entrance for athletes at a Las Vegas sports arena; and Colorado Sen. Mark Udall, who was traveling to Boston with golf clubs. The stolen files also include records about what took place in the vehicles, including sex, vomiting and smoking marijuana, Krebs reports. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., whose data was among those breached, declined to comment Monday. But his spokesman Andrew Schreiber said he was appreciative that the matter was brought to his attention. Other members of Congress also said they were uninformed. “This is the first we have heard about this. We were never notified, but we are looking into the claim,” said Leslie Shedd, spokeswoman for Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga. Holden said he found the information from Corporatecaronline customers stored on the same computer server where he earlier found stolen usernames and passwords from PR Newswire, Adobe Systems and about 100 other firms. He said most firms took immediate action when informed; Adobe and PR Newswire went public when they learned of the breaches, warning millions of customers affected.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, left, speaks with Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, in Riyadh, Monday. Al-Faisal assured Kerry Monday there is no problem with the United States, saying “our two friendly countries” are busy dealing with troublesome issues like Syria, Iran and the Mideast peace process. “There is no room for emotion and anger here, but rather for policies of commonsense and level-headedness,” Faisal said at a joint news conference with Kerry.

Saudi foreign minister, Kerry patch over relations RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — The United States and Saudi Arabia promised each other and the region Monday that they would continue to work together, with Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal saying “our two friendly countries” are busy dealing jointly with troublesome issues like Syria, Iran and the Mideast peace process. “There is no room for emotion and anger here, but rather for policies of commonsense and level-headedness,” Faisal said at a joint news conference with Kerry. Nevertheless, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived for his visit to Saudi Arabia as differences between the two countries intensified over the Obama administration’s policy toward war-torn Syria, its movement toward a possible dialogue with Iran, a regional rival of the Saudis, and its stance on Egypt’s military coup. Al-Faisal also expressed his deep frustration with the United Nations, where the Saudis recently rejected a seat on the Security Council because of its inability to achieve progress in the Syria or for the Palestinians. The prince told Kerry: “A true relationship between friends is based on sincerity, candor and frankness, rather than mere courtesy.” The pair appeared together not long after Kerry, speaking to U.S. employees at the American Embassy here, hailed the kingdom’s role as “the senior player” in the Middle East.

For his part, Kerry said: “this is a deep relationship and it has endured for 75 years and it will endure well into the future.” Kerry in the past has played down the separate stances as differences in “tactics” rather than in the end goal. “Right now, we have some very important things to talk about to make certain that the Saudi Arabian-U.S. relationship is on track, moving forward and doing the things that we need to accomplish,” he told the embassy staffers. Kerry listed a number of key areas, including Syria, Egypt and Iran, but also mentioned the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and the broader effort to tamp down “nihilism” that leads to extremist violence. The Saudis have complained that the United States did not follow through on its threat to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad with military strikes for his government’s use of chemical weapons. Last month, the Saudis won but turned down an elected seat on the U.N. Security Council, saying the body had proved itself largely meaningless because of its inability over two years to address the crisis in Syria. “We can’t claim to have these high moral values if we do nothing here,” al-Faisal said in reference to Syria.. The prince said Monday that “the kingdom’s declination of membership in the Security Council in no way shape or form amounts to the withdrawing from the United Nations.”

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The man accused of opening fire at Los Angeles International Airport, shooting employees and terrorizing travelers, accomplished two of his goals, according to authorities: killing a Transportation Security Administration officer and showing how easy it is to get a gun into an airport. The deadly rampage left investigators to piece together what motivated Paul Ciancia’s hatred toward the agency formed to make air travel safer after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But the attack could ultimately lead to changes in the way airports are patrolled. Ciancia was shot four times by airport police, including in the mouth, and remains heavily sedated and under 24-hour armed guard at the hospital, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Sunday. The official was not authorized to speak publicly on the case and requested anonymity. The FBI said he had a handwritten letter, stating that he made the conscious decision to try to kill multiple TSA officers and “instill fear in your traitorous minds.” The unemployed motorcycle mechanic who recently moved to Los Angeles from the small, blue-collar town of Pennsville, N.J., had a friend drop him at LAX on Friday just moments before he pulled a .223-caliber assault rifle from his duffel bag and opened fire, killing one TSA officer and wounding three other people, including two more TSA workers. Officials do not believe that the friend knew of the shooter’s plans. Ciancia arrived at the airport in a black Hyundai and was not a ticketed passenger. Ciancia is charged with murder of a federal officer and committing violence at an international airport, charges that could qualify him for the death penalty. It was not immediately clear when he would make a first court appearance given his medical condition. In court documents and interviews, authorities spelled out a chilling chain of events, saying Ciancia walked into the airport’s Terminal 3, pulled the assault rifle from his duffel bag and fired repeatedly at 39-year-old TSA officer Gerardo I. Hernandez. He went up an escalator, turned back to see Hernandez move and returned to shoot him again, according to surveillance video reviewed by investigators.

Transportation Security Administration officers ride an escalator past a memorial at Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport Monday. TSA Officer Gerardo I. Hernandez was killed and two officers and one civilian wounded in the shooting at Terminal 3 Friday. Operations at the airport were back to normal Monday, the first business day since the attack.

He then fired on two other uniformed TSA employees and an airline passenger, who all were wounded, as he moved methodically through the security checkpoint to the passenger gate area before airport police shot him as panicked travelers hid in stores and restaurants. It wasn’t clear why Ciancia targeted TSA officers, but what he left behind indicated he was willing to kill any of them who crossed his path, authorities revealed. The letter in his duffel bag refers to how Ciancia believed his constitutional rights were being violated by TSA searches and that he’s a “pissed-off patriot,” upset at former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. “Black, white, yellow, brown, I don’t discriminate,” the note read, according to a paraphrase by a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly. The screed mentioned “fiat currency” and “NWO,”

possible references to the New World Order, a conspiracy theory that foresees a totalitarian one-world government. The letter also talked about “how easy it is to get a gun into the airport,” the law enforcement official said. When searched, the suspect had five 30-round magazines, and his bag contained hundreds more rounds in boxes. The FBI was still looking into Ciancia’s past, but investigators said they had not found evidence of previous crimes or any run-ins with the TSA. They said he had never applied for a job with the agency. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday that Ciancia’s actions show how difficult it is to protect travelers at a massive airport such as LAX. The terminals are open and easily accessible to thousands of people who arrive at large sliding glass doors via a broad ring road that fronts the facility and is designed to move people along quickly.

CAIRO (AP) — After four months in secret detention, deposed President Mohammed Morsi defiantly rejected a court’s authority to put him on trial Monday, saying he still was Egypt’s leader and that those who overthrew him should face charges instead. The trial, which was interrupted twice on its first day by shouting in the raucous courtroom, was then adjourned until Jan. 8 to allow lawyers time to review the case against Morsi and his 14 co-defendants — all prominent members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected president, had been held at an undisclosed location since the military ousted him in a coup July 3. His appearance in court

LEAK: Commissioners to meet with airport officials The commissioners also: • signed an updated contract with CSX railroad to remove an iron bridge on C.R. 75 over the tracks before the end of the year. The contract calls for the county to pay $146,000 for the removal, and CSX will reimburse the county $150,000 upon completion. The county will fund the project through its community bridge fund and deposit the reimbursement when it is received.

The roadway will be turned into cul-de-sacs on each end of the bridge as part of the project, though not until next year, highway director Eric Patton said. Until then, the county will install concrete barriers to divert drivers. • scheduled an interview session Nov. 18 at 9 a.m. with DeKalb County Airport Authority president Brad Stump and airport manager Russ Couchman “regarding the vision of the airport.” Couchman had asked the

officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. Morsi and his co-defendants face charges of inciting the killing of protesters who massed outside the presidential palace in December and demanded he call off a referendum on a new constitution drafted by his Islamist allies. Brotherhood members attacked a sit-in by the protesters, sparking clashes that left 10 people dead. Silent video broadcast on state TV showed Morsi arriving in a minibus outside the makeshift courtroom at a police academy in eastern Cairo, buttoning a dark blue jacket as he stepped from the vehicle and flanked by burly policemen.

Stocks post modest gains BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


represented a step by the military-backed authorities toward granting him due process in the face of mounting criticism by rights groups. Defense lawyers said they had access to Morsi and his co-defendants during a recess Monday and that the judge has agreed to allow them access to their clients in jail. The 62-year-old Morsi, who wore a dark blue suit, light shirt and no tie, was feisty and healthy-looking during his court appearance. He had refused to wear a prison uniform as the judge had ordered, according to security officials, as part of his rejection of the trial’s legitimacy. The dispute had delayed the start of the session by two hours, according to

commissioners to reappoint Stump to the Airport Authority ahead of his Dec. 31 term expiration. The commissioners said with two new Airport Authority members, they must explore all options before making the appointment. • approved a request from the DeKalb County Board of Health to increase the cost of a 5-by-10-inch birth certificate from $7 to $10 and to discontinue wallet-size certificates.

There was no dramatic rally and no records were set. But stocks finished with small gains sprinkled across industries from airlines to steelmakers as the big indexes continued to trade near record highs. All 10 industries tracked in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose. Twice as many stocks rose as fell. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies rose more than one percent, the biggest gain among U.S. market benchmarks. And some industries rose sharply, including steelmakers, homebuilders, and airlines.

While Monday’s gains were modest, they continued a powerful rally in the market that has driven the S&P 500 index up nearly 24 percent this year. The S&P 500 closed at records seven times in October, most recently on Oct. 29, when it set its current all-time high of 1,771.95 On Monday the S&P 500 increased 6.29 points, or 0.4 percent, to close at 1,767.93. Energy stocks had by far the biggest gains among 10 industries in the S&P 500, followed by technology and consumer discretionary stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average rose

23.57 points, or 0.15 percent, to 15,639.12 and the Nasdaq composite also gained 14.55 points, or 0.37 percent, to 3,936.59. Homebuilders gained after Tri Pointe Homes said it would combine with Weyerhaeuser’s home building business in a $2.7 billion deal. Last week homebuilders fell after the Federal Reserve said in a policy statement that the recovery in that sector has “slowed somewhat” in recent months. Tri Pointe rose 77 cents, or 5 percent, to $16.15. D.R. Horton rose 31 cents, or 1.7 percent, to $18.82. KB Home rose 28 cents, or 1.7 percent, to $16.88.

back painful sanctions over Tehran’s nuclear program. At the same time, he cannot ignore Rouhani’s critics and seeks a middle ground built around his comments that American remains untrustworthy but Iran is strong enough to pursue talks and exchanges. Another key test comes later this week when nuclear talks resume in Geneva between Iran and six world powers including the U.S. envoys. Negotiators left last month’s session expressing hope that Rouhani’s election — and full backing from Khamenei — could open room for progress in closing the gap between Western fears that Iran could eventually produce nuclear weapons and Iran’s claims that it only seeks reactors for energy and medical isotopes. Any stumbles in the talks,

however, will likely bring even greater protest backlash from hard-liners such as the Revolutionary Guard and its vast paramilitary network. In a symbolic show of force, they slammed back at appeals by Rouhani’s backers to drop the longstanding chant of “death to America” in light of the groundbreaking exchanges opened in late September during the annual U.N. General Assembly — which included a call from President Barack Obama to Rouhani as the Iranian president headed to the airport. Ties between the two countries were severed after the embassy siege, which began a hostage crisis with 52 people held for 444 days. White House spokesman Jay Carney acknowledged the process would not be easy.

Colts in control of AFC South INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck might be the NFL’s latest comeback kid. Now the 24-year-old quarterback and his Colts teammates must show the league they can be pretty good front-runners, too. After spending all of last season chasing the Texans in the AFC South, Indianapolis had to do it all over again Sunday night by rallying from an 18-point third-quarter deficit to pull off a stunning 27-24 victory that gave them control of the division race. “We feel, obviously, good about where we’re sitting right now, but again, we’ve got a long way to go,” coach Chuck Pagano said Monday. “We just stress to our guys take a beginner’s mentality. Let’s treat it like it’s the first game of the season, practice, whatever. You’ve got to come to work with intentionality, find the things that you need to work on to get better and never be satisfied with where we’re at.” For most of these young Colts

(6-2), playing the role of favorite is a whole new world. Indy entered 2012 ranked as the worst team in the NFL. It wound up going 11-5 and reaching the playoffs for the 11th time in 12 seasons. This year, some of the so-called experts chided the Colts’ success by insisting they had merely gotten “lucky” and that against a non-last place schedule there would be a correction in 2013. Instead, the Colts are ahead of last season’s victory pace, largely because they have thrived in the most extreme circumstances. Of Indy’s 17 wins under Pagano, 10 have come courtesy of Luck’s winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime. That’s the most in the NFL over the last 24 games. The Colts also are 13-2 in one-possession games, and this year Indy has outscored opponents 101-57 in the second half and 59-29 in the fourth quarter — with 16 of those fourth-quarter points coming in Denver’s futile

MIAMI (AP) — A 23-year-old man was convicted of second-degree murder Monday in the 2007 slaying of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor, who was shot outside his own bedroom after witnesses said he confronted young men who had broken into his home looking for money. The jury deliberated about 16 hours over four days before returning the verdict in the trial of Eric Rivera Jr., who admitted in a videotaped confession to police days after Taylor’s death that he fired the fatal shot after kicking in the bedroom door. At the trial, he said on the witness stand that his confession was given only under police pressure and amid purported threats to his family. Rivera was also convicted of armed burglary. Although Rivera did not get the maximum first-degree murder conviction, he still faces a potential life prison sentence. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy did not immediately set a sentencing date but will hold a related hearing on Dec. 10. Rivera sat quietly at the defense table with his lawyers after the verdict was announced, showing no reaction or emotion.

AP sources: Incognito sent racist texts Cavs top DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — In the stadium program sold at the Miami Dolphins’ game on Halloween, Richie Incognito was asked who’s the easiest teammate to scare. His answer: Jonathan Martin. The troubled, troubling relationship between the two linemen took an ominous turn Monday with fresh revelations: Incognito sent text messages to his teammate that were racist and threatening, two people familiar with the situation said. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins and NFL haven’t disclosed the nature of the misconduct that led to Sunday’s suspension of Incognito, a veteran with a reputation for dirty play. Martin, a tackle, remained absent from practice Monday one week after he suddenly left the team because of emotional issues. Also missing was Incognito, a guard suspended indefinitely late Sunday by coach Joe Philbin for his treatment of Martin. The 319-pound Incognito, a ninth-year pro, is white. The 312-pound Martin, who is in his second NFL season, is black. For much of the season they’ve played side by side. The team and NFL continued their investigation into allegations by Martin’s representatives that he was bullied, and Philbin said Dolphins owner Stephen Ross asked league commissioner Roger Goodell for assistance. The NFL Players Association also planned to look into the matter.

“Every decision I’ve made, everything we’ve done in this facility has been done with one thing in mind,” Philbin said. “That’s to help our players and our organization reach their full potential. Any type of conduct (or) behavior that detracts from that objective is not acceptable and is not tolerated.” It’s unclear whether coaches or management had any inkling of harassment between the players before Martin left the team, and Philbin declined to answer a question about the locker-room culture. Recent rumblings of dissension have also included complaints by young players that they’re pressured to pay more than their share when team members socialize together. After beating Cincinnati in overtime Thursday, the Dolphins had three days off while the Martin story mushroomed. They returned to practice Monday and afterward found nearly 100 reporters and cameramen in their locker room. Teammates praised both Incognito and Martin and expressed regret regarding their absences, but said it was time to get on with business. “The only thing affecting us is we can’t even get dressed,” said receiver Mike Wallace as he surveyed the media throng. Wallace said he found Incognito to be intense but a good teammate. Newcomer Bryant McKinnie agreed. “When I got here, he was a

guy who had everybody laughing and told jokes,” said McKinnie, a tackle who joined the team two weeks ago. “I didn’t really see the side being portrayed right now.” Hazing of young players has a long history in sports, but Incognito’s treatment of Martin raised questions about whether coaches or teammates should have intervened. “It’s not a thin line.

CLEVELAND (AP) — C.J. Miles scored 19 points, Kyrie Irving added 15 and the Cleveland Cavaliers held off a late rally for a 93-92 victory over Minnesota on Monday night, handing the Timberwolves their first loss of the season. The Timberwolves nearly erased a 23-point deficit midway through the third quarter to stay unbeaten. Cleveland led 93-84, but was scoreless over the final 2:43. Kevin Love’s basket with 38 seconds remaining cut the lead to one point. Following a miss by Irving with 15 seconds left, the Timberwolves called timeout to set up the last shot. Love, the NBA’s leading scorer, missed a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining and the ball was tipped away as time ran out. Kevin Martin led the Timberwolves with 23 points. Love added 17 points and 13 rebounds for Minnesota, which won its first three games and was off to its best start since going 6-0 in 2001-02. Love came into the game leading the NBA in scoring (29.7) and was second in rebounding (14.7). He was chosen the Western Conference player of the week for the first time in his career. Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett, taken with the No. 1 pick in the draft, missed all three of his shots and is 0 for 15 from the field this season.

IU tries to move on from playcalling error BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — The fallout from Saturday’s late-game decision was still being felt Monday at Indiana. Coach Kevin Wilson again accepted blame for what he called a poor play call. Offensive coordinator Seth Littrell acknowledged he got “bluffed” by Minnesota’s defense. Senior tight end Ted Bolser and junior safety Mark Murphy said simply that they and their teammates needed to execute better. Whatever the explanation, it won’t change the devastating 42-39 loss to Minnesota that left Hoosiers fans demoralized about the likelihood of missing out on a bowl party yet again. “That’s a tough deal, of course. You want them to hurt a little. The locker room was hurting a lot because it was like, ‘Hey, man, that’s the first time I’ve ever seen it like that,’” Wilson said. “We had chances all game. We had a missed touchdown opportunity in the first drive. So we can talk about the last blunder, all it was. So we tried to, late Saturday night, snap out of it.” That didn’t stop anyone from discussing the ramifications 48 hours later. Indiana (3-5, 1-3 Big Ten) entered the season’s

final month needing three wins in its final five games to become bowl eligible — a seemingly plausible scenario with home games against Minnesota and Illinois before closing out the season at Wisconsin, at Ohio State and home against struggling Purdue. After trailing 35-13 in the third quarter Saturday, then rallying to take a 39-35 lead only to fall behind again, 42-39, the hopeful Hoosiers got one last chance by moving to Minnesota’s 9-yard line in the final minute. Following an incompletion and a Minnesota timeout, Nate Sudfeld threw a seemingly safe swing pass, which bounced off Tevin Coleman’s hands. Brock Vereen pounced on the loose ball, which was ruled a lateral to seal the Golden Gophers’ victory. “I saw something that I thought would be unchecked and they just did a good job bluffing it, and that was on me,” Littrell said. “Laterals, we don’t throw laterals, or we don’t throw a lot of laterals. But every play, there’s something different, something we can clean up and work on.” Since 1988, the Hoosiers are a combined 14-47-1 against the Fighting Illini,

Badgers and Buckeyes — and Indiana has never beaten all three schools in the same season. Players, who are trying to stay positive, know many fans are writing off this season as a failure. “We don’t really look at it that way,” Bolser said. “People say we can’t beat Ohio State or Wisconsin,

and we don’t look it that way, either.” Instead, the Hoosiers see the numbers and see they have one of the nation’s most potent offenses and a defense that managed to get enough stops late in Saturday’s game to give the Hoosiers a chance to rally. If they continue playing that way, perhaps they could get

crossed,” Tennessee Titans cornerback Jason McCourty said. “You would hope if stuff was getting out of hands, there were guys in the locker room who would step up and maybe nip it in the bud before it got out of control.” Philbin said he was unaware of hazing incidents that involved Incognito — such as hacking into a teammate’s Facebook page — shown on the HBO series “Hard Knocks,” which chronicled the Dolphins’ training camp in 2012. Philbin said he never watched the program. “If the review shows that this is not a safe atmosphere, I will take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that it is,” Philbin said. “I have that obligation to the players that I coach on a daily basis, and I will do that.” Before being suspended, Incognito posted several

tweets saying he wanted his name cleared. “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth,” Incognito tweeted, quoting Buddha. Agents for the two players didn’t respond to requests for comment. Martin is with his family in Los Angeles for counseling. Incognito, who’s in the final year of a $13 million, three-year contract, has long had a reputation of being among the NFL’s dirtiest players. During his first four years, he led the league in penalties for unnecessary roughness, and the St. Louis Rams got fed up with his undisciplined play and released him during the 2009 season. “There’s certain people out there who are just punks, and he wants to be that kind of guy,” former Seahawks and Lions defensive end Lawrence Jackson said Monday. “But because he’s a lineman, he gets away with a lot of

stuff that people don’t see. … Incognito is way worse than anybody I ever played against.” However, there have been fewer such complaints since Incognito joined the Dolphins in 2010. Last year he was voted by the league’s players into the Pro Bowl for the first time. He was the co-winner of the Dolphins’ Good Guy Award, given to the team’s most cooperative player by the local media. He also won frequent praise from Dolphins coaches for his leadership, and this year he was voted by teammates to serve as a member of the Dolphins’ player council. At Nebraska, Incognito’s career was cut short when he was suspended in 2004 before his junior season following a locker room altercation with a teammate. He also ran into problems with the law while with the Cornhuskers, and they said he repeatedly violated team rules. Martin protected Andrew

Luck’s blind side at Stanford before joining Miami as a second-round draft pick in 2012. He has been a starter since the beginning of his rookie season, but has struggled while dividing his time between left and right tackle. Stanford coach David Shaw said people at the school had been in touch with Martin. “I’m a Jonathan Martin fan, so my interest is just in him getting back to the point where he gets a chance to play this game that he loves again,” Shaw said. “By all accounts he’s doing well. Not sure if he’s going to rejoin the team this year, or when he is, but I know he’s going to get himself back ready to play the game.” For the first six games this year, Incognito and Martin were the two players protecting Ryan Tannehill’s blind side. Their troubled relationship may help explain his NFL-high 35 sacks.

South went through Houston. “It was a division game and it was one we had to get,” said receiver T.Y. Hilton, who caught all three of Luck’s touchdown passes Sunday. “They’re the defending division champs and we had to give them everything we had to get the win.” Now comes the harder part — learning how to protect the lead. Sunday’s victory kept Indy two games ahead of second-place Tennessee (4-4) and expanded the lead over Houston to four. With wins at Jacksonville and Houston, the Colts can go for the road sweep

Win that, and the Colts could go three up on the Titans with six to play — and likely would have the inside track to holding the first tiebreaker, too, as they continue to add to an already impressive resume. Indy is 4-0 against playoff teams from last season and has only two more left on the schedule — at Cincinnati on Dec. 8 and against Houston on Dec. 15. The Texans have never won in Indy.

latest NFC favorite, Seattle, at home. It ended Denver’s quest for perfection by outscoring the NFL’s No. 1 offense, and it outplayed the league’s No. 1 defense in the second half as Houston scrambled to get back in the division chase. But the Colts understand that this is a long way from over — and they’re a long way from being a finished product. Trent Richardson is averaging 3.0 yards per carry since joining the Colts in a Week 3 trade and hasn’t scored since Week 4. Hilton played well in the second half at Houston, but Luck’s passing stats (18 of 40)

demonstrated how tough it will be to replace injured Pro Bowl receiver Reggie Wayne the rest of this season. Luck, who the Colts wanted to protect better this season, has been sacked 19 times compared with 41 in 2012. He continues to take dozens of hits, and the defense that only yielded three points over the final 30 minutes, was fortunate to not allow more than 21 in the first half when Andre Johnson torched the secondary for nearly 200 yards and three TDs. And to stay in front of the pack, Pagano knows the Colts have to start finding some solutions.

the big upset they need. Plus, the Hoosiers must still figure out what went wrong against Minnesota. In addition to the inexplicable turnover, Wilson pointed to five consecutive punts Saturday, something he noted the Hoosiers cannot afford with their fast-paced tempo. He wants the defense to become more consistent

than it has been and to play the way they did late, when the stops gave Indiana a chance to rally. But that’s been a season-long quest that shows no signs of abating anytime soon. Bolser and Murphy both downplayed the impact this latest loss, Indiana’s third in a row, will have in the locker room.

OSU’s Smart leads All-American team A lot of people were shocked when Marcus Smart announced he would return to Oklahoma State for his sophomore season. Nobody should be surprised the Cowboys point guard was a unanimous selection to The Associated Press’ preseason All-America team. Smart was on every ballot from the 65-member national media panel Monday, a no-brainer since he was expected to be among the first players chosen if he had declared for the NBA draft. The last unanimous preseason All-America was Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger in 2011-12. After averaging 15.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 3.0 steals last season in winning the Big 12 player of year award, it was how the Cowboys fared in the NCAA tournament that had a lot to do with his coming back. “I felt like we had a lot more to accomplish,” Smart said of the loss to Oregon in Oklahoma State’s opening game of the NCAA tournament. “We were a lot better team than that. That’s just not the way we wanted to go out. It helped me a little bit to get motivated to come back this year.” Smart was joined on the preseason All-America team by seniors Doug McDermott of Creighton and Russ Smith of Louisville, sophomore Mitch McGary of Michigan and freshman Andrew Wiggins of Kansas. The 6-foot-4 Smart, who also won the Wayman Tisdale Award as the country’s top freshman, said he’s also coming back to improve on his 1.3-to-1 assist-turnover ratio and his 40 percent shooting from the field, including just 29 percent from 3-point range. Still, he said the decision to pass up millions of dollars and return to Stillwater was “the most difficult thing in my life.” McDermott, the Missouri Valley Conference player of the year last season after averaging 23.2 points and 7.7 rebounds, was on all but two ballots. He enters the season with a chance at joining an exclusive group. A two-time first-team All-America, McDermott could become just the 11th player to be a three-time postseason selection and the first since Patrick Ewing of Georgetown and Tisdale at Oklahoma from 1983-85. The 6-8 forward is one four returning starters for the Bluejays and coach Greg McDermott, Doug’s father. Creighton moves to the Big East this season. “I’m looking at this season

as an opportunity to embrace a new challenge,” he said. “We know it’s much more physical and there are a lot more athletes than we’re used to. We’ve prepared ourselves pretty well. We know it’s going to be a grind and we’re looking forward to that.” The 6-foot Smith, who received 52 votes, averaged 18.7 points and 2.9 assists in helping the Cardinals win the national championship. He won’t have the graduated Peyton Siva with him in the backcourt but coach Rick Pitino will still be calling the shots. “I realized how much I loved playing with my teammates and how much fun it is to win,” Smith said of returning for his senior year, “and this is part of the purpose of being a national champion. Obviously, I wasn’t a clear cut first-round pick, so coming back was mainly because of coach, my teammates, the Louisville campus, the community, graduating.” Wiggins, just the second freshman to earn preseason honors since the team was first selected for the 1986-87 season, averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds as a senior at Huntington (W.Va.) Prep School. He was on 42 ballots and joins Harrison Barnes of North Carolina in 2010-11 as the only freshmen to earn preseason honors. Wiggins is a member of an outstanding freshman class at Kansas and there aren’t many people who expect him to be a sophomore in Lawrence. The national magazine covers, the constant attention and comparisons to the like of LeBron James haven’t been a problem for the 6-8 Wiggins, whose father Mitchell played at Florida State and in the NBA. “It kind of grew on me over the years to where I’m used to it,” Wiggins said of the attention. “I just think of it as a blessing. A lot of people don’t get an opportunity to be showcased like that.” McGary, who averaged 7.5 points and 6.3 rebounds, caught the country’s attention during the Wolverines’ run to the NCAA title game when he averaged 14.3 points and 10.7 rebounds. The 6-10 McGary, who received 34 votes, has been slowed by a lower back condition heading into this season. “Right now I’m day to day — doing stuff on the court, light shooting, limited in what I can do, what they’re allowing me to do,” McGary said last week. “There’s no target date or anything.” Ohio State guard Aaron Craft was sixth in the voting with 14.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Giants decline 2014 option for pitcher Vogelsong SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants have declined to exercise their $6.5 million option for right-hander Ryan Vogelsong, but are expected to continue negotiating with him about a contract for 2014. Vogelsong went 4-6 with a 5.73 ERA in 19 starts and 103 2-3 innings during an injury-shortened season. He broke two bones in the right pinkie area of his pitching hand and also dislocated a knuckle on a swing May 20 and underwent surgery the next day. He had five pins inserted in his hand during the procedure at Stanford, performed by orthopedist Dr. Tim McAdams. Vogelsong won 13 and 14 games, respectively, the previous two seasons. He is due a $300,000 buyout. The Giants already declined options Saturday for lefty Barry Zito ($18 million) and outfielder Andres Torres ($3 million).

James eyeing 500th straight double-digit game MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James is on the verge of another milestone. The Miami Heat forward has scored at least 10 points in 499 consecutive regular-season games. He goes for No. 500 on Tuesday night when the two-time defending NBA champions visit the Toronto Raptors. James would become only the fifth player in NBA history with that many consecutive games of 10 or more points. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did it twice (with separate streaks of 787 and 508 games), and Michael Jordan (866), Karl Malone (575) and Moses Malone (526) are the only others to accomplish the feat. James says he was unaware of the stat until being asked about it after Miami’s win Sunday night over Washington. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says the team does not want to take James’ greatness for granted.

Reds make offer to Choo CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds made a $14.1 million qualifying offer to leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo on Monday, but decided against the same approach for right-hander Bronson Arroyo and four others. They chose not to make qualifying offers to infielder Cesar Izturis, right-handed reliever Nick Masset and left-handed relievers Manny Parra and Zach Duke. All could re-sign with the Reds as free agents. Choo was one of the top leadoff hitters in the majors with a .423 on-base percentage, a .285 batting average, 21 homers, 54 RBIs, 20 steals and 107 runs scored. He avoided arbitration last season by agreeing to a one-year, $7,375,000 deal. If Choo accepts the offer, he stays for another season at $14.1 million. If he declines and signs with another team, the Reds will get compensation in next June’s amateur draft. He has until next Monday to make up his mind. He’s expected to seek a multiyear deal. Arroyo went 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA last season, the final year on his two-year, $23.5 million extension. He had base salaries of $7 million in 2012 and $6.5 million this year. The deal included $15 million deferred, paid out through 2021. Arroyo joined the Reds in 2006 and has a streak of nine straight seasons with at least 30 starts, making him a dependable part of any rotation. Izturis was a reserve infielder who batted .209 in 63 games with no homers and 11 RBIs.

Obama calls Red Sox manager BOSTON (AP) — President Barack Obama called Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell on Monday to congratulate him on winning the World Series. Farrell said on Monday that he got the call just before 2 p.m. According to a report of the call issued by the White House, the president also praised the work of closer Koji Uehara and congratulated designated hitter David Ortiz on being named World Series MVP. Farrell says the team is hoping to make the traditional champions’ White House visit next year, perhaps around the season opener at Baltimore on March 31. The Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals in six games, clinching on Wednesday night for their third title in 10 years.AP College Football Writer

ASU’s Graham gets scare on recruiting trip TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State coach Todd Graham was still a little shaken Monday after a small plane he was riding in with his son during a weekend recruiting trip plummeted about 25,000 feet before leveling off. Graham and his son Bo, Arizona State’s running backs coach, were flying to Dallas to watch a recruit play when they were startled by a loud noise as the plane hit 35,000 feet. Within a few minutes, the plane started into a dive as the pilots fought to control it. The Grahams sat in the back wearing oxygen masks. The pilots were able to level the plane off at 10,000 feet and made an emergency landing in Albuquerque, N.M. The Grahams waited a few hours before continuing their trip on another plane.

Indiana tackles two sad statistics Indiana leaders at least are talking about how to change two sorry statistics involving the Hoosier state. Indiana leads the nation in the number of reported sexual assaults involving girls. A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention When it comes to says 17.3 raising the survival percent of rate of babies, Hoosier Hoosier girls in leaders understand the grades 9-12 they problem and seem to report have been know how to attack it. raped. That compares to about 10.5 percent of girls nationwide. The second sad statistic says Indiana’s infant mortality rate ranks as one of the worst in the nation. In 2011, nearly eight out of every 1,000 Hoosier children died before their first birthdays. Only five states had worse records. Gov. Mike Pence on Friday called the infant mortality rate deplorable. He said improving it is a key goal of his administration. When it comes to raising the survival rate of babies, Hoosier leaders understand the problem and seem to know how to attack it. Dr. William VanNess, commissioner of the Indiana State Department of Health, said too many Hoosier women smoke while pregnant — 16.6 percent in Indiana versus 9 percent nationally. They are more likely to be obese. And they are more likely to elect to have their babies delivered before the fetus is at least 39 weeks old. Indiana mothers are also less likely to breastfeed and more likely to sleep in the same bed with their infants. VanNess laid out a five-point plan to reduce the state’s infant mortality rate: • reducing the number of pregnant women who are smoking and their obesity rates; • discouraging parents from bringing their infants to their beds; • working with hospitals to put a stop to elective, early deliveries; • encouraging more women to breastfeed their infants; and • analyzing and sharing data with local and regional health organizations to coordinate programs and education. Unfortunately, Indiana lacks a clear plan for reducing the rate of sexual assaults on girls. The state legislature’s Criminal Law and Sentencing Policy Study Committee heard experts on the problem last week. Before the hearing, Rep. Christina Hale, D-Indianapolis, pointed out how little we know about the reality behind the statistics. She asked, “Where is this happening? Is it an urban problem? A rural problem? Is it a problem in families, our schools, or a combination of both?” Hoosiers face many questions about sexual assaults with few answers. That’s why we need a solid study to learn more before blindly attempting solutions. Hale’s words at last week’s hearing should stay in the forefront of Hoosier thinking. “It’s just not acceptable that our children are in danger of being victims of sexual crime,” she said. “What if we decided to do something together and do something about it? We could choose this issue and lead our nation.”

Higher minimum wage will close job market to low-skilled BY TYLER WATTS

Building on recent fast-food strikes, a law professor, a leader of the “Raise the Wage Indiana” movement, made an appeal for higher minimum wages in Indiana newspapers. His reasoning, though, runs counter to my work experience as a young man and that of many others he professes to help. The professor trots out the usual advocate research, plus celebrity endorsements and finally a plea for basic fairness, complete with hard-up stories painting an image of minimum-wage earners struggling to feed their children. He dismisses any and all research to the contrary, suggesting that opponents of a minimum-wage increase are nothing but bought-and-paid-for shills of multinational corporations. How do such advocates explain the fact that the teen unemployment rate is currently near 23 percent, and has consistently hovered at about three times the overall unemployment rate? They can’t because there is no way around this economic reality: If you mandate higher and higher prices for a good or service, at some point people are going to buy less of it. The upshot is that higher minimum

wages, like all price controls, make liars out of otherwise honest, hard-working folks and throw sand in the gears of the price system. Forcing me to ask for far more pay than my skill, education and experience justify does not help me; rather, it can hurt my current and future job prospects by shutting me out of those entry-level jobs necessary for young workers to build valuable on-the-job experience. Economics notwithstanding, advocates will keep trotting out anecdotes about struggling low-wage workers in an ongoing attempt to shame a minimum-wage hike out of politicians. Well, let me close with an anecdote of my own. My first summer job paid me $1 an hour, far below the then-current $4.25 federal minimum. Then again, I was 10 years old, and not capable of much other than sweeping up and being a gofer on construction sites. But by age 18, I had eight years of experience, could perform all manner of construction tasks, and earned about $10 an hour. My friends, who were just starting their working lives, struggled to find work at minimum wage. And by my late 20s, I had acquired enough skills to where I could

High self-esteem can help kids from being bullied DEAR ABBY: I was picked on and bullied as a child. I was very insecure and dealt with low self-esteem. Through counseling I was able to overcome these issues to become a successful wife and mother. My question is, how do I prevent this from happening to my children without being an overprotective “bear” of a mom? — MAMA BEAR DEAR MAMA BEAR: Children with high self-esteem are less likely to be the targets of bullies. More often it’s the child whose self-esteem is fragile to begin with who becomes the victim. Children learn self-esteem from the way their parents treat them. Tell your children you love them, talk to them, read to them, listen to them and give them your undivided attention. And when they do something right, praise them. If you teach your children respect for others and how to be independent, they will be




less likely to be bullied. When they are old enough to have unsupervised access to their cellphones and online activities, you should also monitor them for any indication that they are being harassed or harassing another child.


DEAR ABBY: I invited my sister “Alina” and Jeanne Phillips her husband from out of town for Thanksgiving because they had no plans. I then extended an invitation to my other sister, “Marilyn,” and her husband if they had no plans. Marilyn told me later that her daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren will be coming in from

out of town, so I assumed they’d be celebrating Thanksgiving at her house. When Marilyn asked me if they were included I said no, that the invitation was for her and her husband if they had no plans. Now she is furious with me and won’t talk to me. I already have my children coming over and that will be 10 guests, which is as many as I can accommodate. Who is right here? — THANKSGIVING HOSTESS DEAR HOSTESS: You are. Your sister should not have assumed that because you invited her and her husband for Thanksgiving that you were automatically obligated to entertain the rest of her family.

On this date Nov. 5: • In 1987, Supreme Court nominee Douglas H. Ginsburg admitted using marijuana several times in the 1960s and 70s, calling it a mistake. (Ginsburg ended up withdrawing his nomination.) • In 2009, a shooting rampage at the Fort Hood Army post in Texas left 13 people dead; Maj. Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, was charged with premeditated murder and attempted murder.


High blood pressure can lead to heart failure needs to eliminate waste. In that sense, every cell in our body is just like us. The heart pumps nutrition-rich blood out to the body, and as the blood delivers the nutrition, it picks up the waste. The heart also pumps blood through the lungs to receive a ASK fresh supply DOCTOR K. of oxygen. The heart has four Dr. Anthony chambers. Two Komaroff chambers, called the atria, receive blood. Two larger chambers, the ventricles, pump blood out to the lungs and the rest of the body. That’s how a healthy

heart works. However, disease (particularly high blood pressure and clogged arteries), injury, and years of wear and tear can take their toll. Heart failure is usually a gradual decline in the heart’s ability to pump. Sometimes heart failure begins suddenly, such as when someone has a heart attack that kills a part of the heart muscle. Whether it begins gradually or suddenly, in many cases of heart failure the muscle tissue in the heart’s left ventricle becomes thin and weak. It can’t contract strongly enough to send sufficient blood throughout the body. Which brings us to ejection fraction. A low ejection fraction is a defining characteristic of a common type of heart failure called systolic heart failure. An ejection fraction is a measurement of the volume of blood pumped

DEAR DOCTOR K: My husband has heart failure. His doctor often uses the term “ejection fraction.” Can you explain what this means? DEAR READER: Before I explain what an ejection fraction is, let’s say what “heart failure” is, and isn’t. Many of my patients think that heart failure means a heart that stops pumping completely. But that’s not heart failure; that’s sudden death. Heart failure can lead to a range of symptoms, from fatigue and shortness of breath to a buildup of fluid in the body. With heart failure, the heart is still pumping — it’s just not pumping effectively enough to completely do the job the rest of the body needs it to do. What is that job? Every cell in the body needs a constant supply of nutrition (sugar, fat and oxygen) and


out of the left ventricle each time the heart contracts, expressed as a percentage of the total amount of blood expelled. A doctor can measure ejection fraction with an echocardiogram. This test uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart. The resulting video can determine ejection fraction. The ability to measure the ejection fraction has helped doctors more precisely determine the effectiveness of treatment, and the best type of treatment. It also helped doctors to discover a second type of heart failure that we now recognize as another common type: diastolic heart failure. But that’s a topic for another column. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Senate pushing gay anti-bias bill High court can’t avoid abortion issues for long WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate prepared to push a major anti-bias gay rights bill past a first, big hurdle Monday, a clear sign of Americans’ greater acceptance of homosexuality nearly two decades after lawmakers narrowly rejected discrimination legislation. The bill that would prohibit workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender Americans could win Senate passage by week’s end, but its prospects in the Republican-majority House are dimmer. A stark reminder of the nation’s changing views, lingering resistance to homosexuality and the political implications resonated in Maine, as six-term Democratic Rep. Mike Michaud, who is running for governor, said he was gay and questioned whether it still mattered to voters. Hours before Monday’s vote, President Barack Obama issued a fresh plea for passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, the first significant gay rights bill since Congress lifted the ban on gays serving openly in the military nearly three years ago. “Americans ought to be judged by one thing only in their workplaces: their ability to get their jobs done,” the president said in a message written for “Does it make a difference if the firefighter who rescues you is gay — or the accountant who does your taxes or the mechanic who fixes your car?” All 55 members of the Democratic majority and at least five Republicans


Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., announced his support on Monday for an anti-bias gay rights bill in the Senate, saying in a statement that the measure “raises

were expected to vote to proceed with the bill, giving Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., the 60 votes necessary. Reid’s Republican colleague in Nevada, Dean Heller, announced his support on Monday, saying that the measure “raises the federal standards to match what we have come to expect in Nevada, which is that discrimination must not be tolerated under any circumstance.” Opening Senate debate, Reid quoted slain gay rights leader Harvey Milk, who argued that freedom and individual rights shouldn’t hinge on political deals and opinion polls. The law, Reid said, would ensure that “all Americans regardless of where they live can go to

the federal standards to match what we have come to expect in Nevada, which is that discrimination must not be tolerated under any circumstance.”

work unafraid to be who they are.” Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa., called the measure another step forward in the country’s progress. The administration, in a strong statement of support, said passage of the bill was long overdue. Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., delivered his first speech on the Senate floor since suffering a stroke in January 2012. Seated at a desk, Kirk said it was especially important for an Illinois Republican to speak out for the legislation in the tradition of Everett Dirksen and Abraham Lincoln, two leaders on civil rights. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., the first openly gay member of the Senate, praised the Republicans and Democrats united behind

the bill. “For those that stand up this week and answer the call for courage, I can say with confidence your courage will be respected and remembered when the history of this struggle is written,” Baldwin said. Current federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, race and national origin. But it doesn’t stop an employer from firing or refusing to hire workers because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. The bill would bar employers with 15 or more workers from using a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for making employment decisions, including hiring, firing, compensation or promotion.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday declined for now to jump back into the long-running legal fight over abortion, but a flood of new state restrictions has increased the chances that the issue soon will be back before the justices. The court stepped back from a dispute over a now-dead Oklahoma law to limit drug-induced abortions. But a new filing asks the justices to block new Texas restrictions that have dramatically reduced the availability of abortions in Texas. Oklahoma also is challenging its state high court’s rejection of a law mandating an ultrasound exam before an abortion can be performed and Arizona, backed by 16 other states, wants the justices to let it enforce a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, except for medical emergencies. On both sides of the issue, people say it is only a matter of time before the court steps in to indicate how far states may go in regulating abortion without crossing the line the court first set out in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that announced a woman’s right to an abortion and modified in 1992 in Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The Supreme Court’s last abortion case was in 2007, when a bitterly divided court upheld a federal law that banned a procedure its

opponents call partial-birth abortion. It was the first time the court upheld a nationwide ban on a particular method of abortion and the majority opinion that Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for his four conservative colleagues suggested that the court might be open to additional limits on abortion. The ensuing years have given rise to a wealth of state laws that outlaw abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, set limits on the use of drug-induced abortions, mandate ultrasound exams and counseling and require that doctors who perform abortions in clinics practice at nearby hospitals. “I think what we’re seeing is that Americans generally, according to opinion polls and the actions of their legislatures, are unhappy with federal control of abortion that we’ve had since Roe v. Wade,” said Casey Mattox, senior counsel at the anti-abortion Alliance Defending Freedom. Looking at the same trend, Nancy Northup, president and chief executive officer of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said abortion rights groups are pushing back hard against the state laws. “The reality is, we are seeing an onslaught of restrictions like never before,” Northup said. Her group led the challenge to the Oklahoma law on medication abortions.

New Jersey, Virginia governor races highlight GOP divide NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — From rural Iowa to urban New York, voters across America will render judgment in a slate of political contests today, including in New Jersey and Virginia where gubernatorial race outcomes could highlight the Republican Party division between pragmatists and ideologues. Elsewhere, Colorado voters will set a tax rate for marijuana. New York will elect a successor to Michael Bloomberg after 12 years

in office, while Boston’s mayoral race pits white collar against blue collar, and Detroit’s spotlights the city’s bankruptcy — just three of the many mayoral contests from coast to coast. Republican and Democratic strategists alike say that today’s contests are more defined by candidate personalities and region-specific issues than political trends likely to influence next year’s larger fight for control of Congress. Turnout is expected to be low across

the country, typical for elections held in years when the White House and Congress aren’t up for grabs. Candidates across the country made their last pitches to voters as local elections boards made their final preparations. “We can’t take anything for granted. We are Republicans in New Jersey,” Christie told supporters Monday, although polls suggest he likely will cruise to a second term over his little-known Democratic

opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono. A potential presidential candidate, Christie could become the state’s first Republican to exceed 50 percent of the vote in a statewide election in 25 years. And a Republican victory in a Democratic-leaning state could stoke the notion within part of the GOP that a pragmatic approach is the answer to the party’s national woes. To the south, a defeat of a conservative Republican in the swing-voting state of

Virginia also could feed into that argument. Republican Ken Cuccinelli, who comes from the party’s right flank and promotes his role as the first state attorney general to challenge the health care overhaul, is struggling against former national Democratic Party chairman Terry McAuliffe, and polls suggest that he could lose. He has been hurt both by the government shutdown that Republicans are bearing most of the blame for and by a political

scandal involving accusations of lavish gift-giving by a political supporter to Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell and his family. A McAuliffe victory would break a three decadelong trend: Virginia has elected a governor from the party not occupying the White House in every gubernatorial election since 1977. Neither race will offer significant clues about the state of the electorate heading into a midterm election year.
