GOOD MORNING Contractors working on two I-69 bridges AUBURN — Southbound lanes of Interstate 69 will be intermittently restricted between Exit 326 (C.R. 11-A) and Exit 329 (S.R. 8) during nighttime hours until Saturday morning, the Indiana Department of Transportation said. Weather permitting. INDOT is performing proactive maintenance work on bridges over the CSX Railroad and Diehl Ditch and over C.R. 48. Both bridges are approximately one mile south of S.R. 8. The work will take place between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., beginning with a restriction in the southbound right lane. As work progresses, the contractor will restrict the southbound left lane. INDOT said drivers should be aware of traffic controls including barrels, cones and arrow boards while the work is in progress. A 45 mph speed limit will be in force within the construction zone when workers are present. A width limit of 14 feet is in force within the project limits. The maintenance is expected to be complete by 6 a.m. Saturday. The work is part of a multi-location bridge maintenance contract, with work taking place in upcoming weeks throughout the INDOT Fort Wayne District. The contract was awarded to Pioneer, based on its low bid of $196,000.

DeKalb Eastern marking 50 years BY JEFF JONES

BUTLER — While the DeKalb County Eastern Community School District was established in July 1962, the first seniors to graduate from Eastside Junior-Senior High School received their diplomas in the spring of 1964. To commemorate 50 years, school officials will host an informal open house Wednesday, Nov. 27, as part of the boys basketball game between Eastside and Garrett. Patrons can walk the Eastside hallways, visit the Millie Hansen Auditorium, dinner theater

and witness some of the latest classroom technological advances, explained principal Larry Yoder. Staff members will be available in various parts of the building. School consolidations — often between rival schools — occurred in part due to Indiana’s School Corporation Reorganization Act of 1959. Locally, that brought together students who attended the Metropolitan School District of Butler and the Riverdale School Corp.

In a special election held May 8, 1962, voters approved the creation of the DeKalb Eastern school district. The first elected school board was comprised of president Franklyn Sechler, vice president Walter Reinhart, secretary Wendell Cooper, treasurer Joseph Parshall, and members Keith Culler, Frank Laub and Delbert Washler. The superintendent was Ernest Zeller and the school attorney was Henry C. Springer. That brought together the histories of the Butler Windmills and Riverdale Comets. Coinci-

dentally, Riverdale was a consolidation of the St. Joe Tigers and Concord Township, Spencerville Red Raiders and Spencer Township, and Newville Township. Patrons are invited to share memorabilia, including old photos, yearbooks, athletic apparel, trophies and newspaper articles pertaining to any of the schools in eastern DeKalb County. Contributors can bring their items to the Eastside office, 603 E. Green St. Patrons are asked to tag their items for easy identification and can be picked up when school resumes Monday, Dec. 2.

Storm aid is slow PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

A cross-functional team of employees at Eaton’s Auburn plant works together to improve material flow. The project has helped improve safety,

ergonomics and efficiency throughout the plant, a company spokesman said.

Eaton going with faster flow AUBURN — Eaton Corp. says its plant in Auburn has reduced the distance material and parts travel through the plant by 4.5 miles per day to improve safety, ergonomics and efficiency. The improvements are part of the plant’s Material Flow Project, a company spokesman said. The Auburn facility designs, engineers and manufactures clutch components for the global commercial vehicle industry. The Material Flow Project began last year to address changes to Auburn’s product mix and growing production volume — more than 50 truckloads of material a day come in and out of the facility. “The project was a real team effort that involved machining, assembly, production, maintenance, materials, engineering and safety,” said Ralph Beam, Auburn’s plant manager. Team members conducted a thorough analysis of Auburn’s overall manufacturing footprint and individual production cells, material storage, work in process, sub-assemblies, finished goods, packaging and shipping areas.

Auburn plant adds employees AUBURN — Employment at Eaton Corp. in Auburn has grown by roughly 20 since a landmark labor agreement in late 2011, plant manager Ralph Beam said Tuesday. The plant now employs 175 people. “The single greatest factor is we introduced in 2011 the ability to bring in temporary workers to our Auburn facility,” Beam said. Before the agreement, similar Eaton facilities in Charlotte, N.C. and Mexico were able to hire temporary workers. They were more likely to be targeted for job growth by the parent company, since it did not have to worry about laying off workers if a new project did not work out as hoped. Two years ago, the Auburn They identified a 23-step improvement plan that ranged from moving equipment closer to workers and making greater

plant and its union came to an agreement to allow temporary workers to be hired, making the Auburn location more competitive for new work projects, Beam said. “We have an excellent relationship with the union,” Beam said. “They want jobs here just like the company wants jobs here.” Beam said the Auburn plant carries, on average, five temporary workers among the 20 new hires since the deal was inked in late 2011. Since the local plant is tied so closely to trucking fleets, any uptick in the economy could lead to more work and more jobs, Beam said. “We’re dependent on what the economy does,” he said. use of transport carts to installing full-size bearing presses and relocating robotic cells and entire SEE EATON, PAGE A6

TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) — Desperately needed food, water and medical aid are only trickling into this city that took the worst blow from Typhoon Haiyan, while thousands of victims jammed the damaged airport Tuesday, seeking to be evacuated. “We need help. Nothing is happening. We haven’t eaten since yesterday afternoon,” pleaded a weeping Aristone Balute, an 81-year-old woman who failed to get a flight out of Tacloban for Manila, the capital. Her clothes were soaked from a pouring rain and tears streamed down her face. Five days after what could be the Philippines’ deadliest disaster, aid is coming — pallets of supplies and teams of doctors are waiting to get into Tacloban — but the challenges of delivering the assistance means few in the stricken city have received help. “There is a huge amount that we need to do. We have not been able to get into the remote communities,” U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said in Manila, launching an appeal for $301 million to help the more than 11 million people estimated to be affected by the storm. “Even in Tacloban, because of the debris and the difficulties with logistics and so on, we have not been able to get in the level of supply that we would want to. We are going to do as much as we can to bring in more,” she said. Her office said she planned to visit the city. Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said relief goods were getting into the city, and the supply should increase now that the airport and a bridge to the island were open.

Town can’t provide school resource officer BY AARON ORGAN

HAMILTON — It appears Hamilton Community Schools will not tap the Hamilton Police Department for a school resource officer. School district and town representatives held an open and informal meeting Tuesday night inside the school to discuss hiring a fifth town police officer as a resource officer at the school building. The state has awarded the school district a $35,000 matching grant for security measures.

But news came quickly in the meeting from Town Councilwoman Tina Bosse that seemed to be a deal-breaker. She reported that hiring a fifth officer would change the police department status and force the town to pay overtime costs. With four officers now, the town is exempt from those costs. “That’s a big hurdle to surmount,” Bosse told school board members and Superintendent Jon Willman. However, Bosse said the town would be willing to change officers’ daily routines to allow

patrols inside the school and on school grounds. Willman requested patrols be made whenever possible, but especially during morning drop-off and afternoon pickup times. “You can start that tomorrow,” school board President Scott Lucas said. “That would be welcomed with open arms from everybody on this end.” The police department requested a computer be placed inside the school building for an officer to perform basic duties, allowing the officer to spend more time in the building. The district

also will issue each officer a key card for around-the-clock access to the building, Lucas said. Lucas said the school board was not in a position to comment whether it would pursue a resource officer from either the DeKalb or Steuben county sheriff’s department with the grant dollars, saying it was thrown a “curve ball” with news of the town police department’s restriction. The district has until year’s end to have a resource officer in place to receive the state grant. Willman must notify the state in the event SEE TOWN, PAGE A6

Butler Police planning ‘Shop with a Cop’ event


Students use new computers in Butler Public Library’s teen room. The library

recently was honored with a Four-Star Award from Library Journal magazine.

Library earns four stars BY JEFF JONES

BUTLER — The stars have come out once again at the Butler Public Library. For the fourth time in the past six years, the library has been named a “Star Library” in Library Journal magazine’s annual index of public library service. The announcement was made in the publication’s November issue, based on 2011 statistics. The edition ranks outstanding libraries with three, four or five stars based on circulation, visits per capita, program attendance per capita and computer usage. Libraries submit annual reports to their state libraries, and Library Journal uses that information to create its index. The Butler library was ranked among libraries with annual budgets between $200,000-$399,999. “Everyone works so hard,” said director Ellen Stuckey. “The staff really deserves the recognition. We’ve really focused on pre-literacy and getting children to read.”

Over the years, the library has implemented and maintained several initiatives, including the 1,000 Book Club, Kindergarten Prep School (KiPS), StoryTime, Book Buddies and Begin in Books programs and its ever-popular summer reading program. “I’m very proud of my staff,” Stuckey said. “The staff really deserves this, because they work very hard to make this library operate easily. They’re all very good at what they do.” In all, Indiana placed seven libraries on the index, while neighboring Ohio ranked second once again with 32 libraries on the list. New York had the most with 37. Eleven states had no libraries on the list. The index is broken down into nine expenditure groups, from the smallest —$100,000 to $199,000 — to the largest, for libraries with annual expenditures in excess of $30 million. Although the Butler Public Library has cardholders in surrounding townships, those numbers

aren’t factored in because they are not part of the library’s service district. The city of Butler is the only entity in the library’s taxing district, with approximately 2,600 residents. In 2011, each resident checked out an average of nearly 22 books, made 14.4 visits to the library, attended 2.31 programs and used the library’s computers more than five times. Each student attending a DeKalb Eastern school — Eastside High School or Butler or Riverdale elementary schools — is eligible for a free library card. Two community rooms regularly are used for events and meetings. The library also has a variety of after-school activities for teens and elementary children, Stuckey said. Adults can participate in cooking, knitting, sewing or tai chi classes, and the Friends of the Library group conducts several events to raise funds for the library. “We like to have something for everyone,” she said.

BUTLER — The Butler Police Department is planning its annual “Shop with a Cop” event. Donations are being accepted now, Police Chief Jim Nichols announced. In addition to the shopping trip, police hope to raise enough money so each child and his or her family can enjoy a meal with a police officer, Nichols said. Police are consulting with school and church officials to determine need. Applications are available at the police department, 201 N. Broadway. Children must be 16

years of age or younger and reside within the Butler city limits. Applications are to be returned to the police department no later than Monday, Dec. 9. Applications must include a valid telephone number and a copy of a current utility bill to show proof of residency in Butler. Each child selected for the program will shop with a uniformed Butler Police officer and will be given an amount of money to spend.

Children are encouraged to buy a needed item for themselves, such as coats, hats, gloves or sweatshirts. Participating children usually are able to purchase gifts for other family members. Each child’s parent or guardian also will be accompanied by a police officer to shop so the child or the family’s children will have gifts to open Christmas morning. For more information, contact the Butler Police Department at 868-2171.

Bail set for suspect in sexual misconduct case BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — Bail has been set at $50,000 for a 38-year-old Hamilton Lake man accused of carrying on a six-month sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl. Chad J.

Garrett veteran witnessed war’s iconic events BY SUE CARPENTER

GARRETT — Richard “Dick” Capin is widely known as an outstanding math teacher at Garrett High School and winning Railroader athletic coach. But his three years in the Pacific Theatre during World War II put him in the front row as history was made. In 1944, Capin enlisted in the U.S. Navy at 17, and after attending electrical school was shipped by cattle train with other troops to San Francisco. From there, he and other men rode in a luxury boat from California to Hawaii — the unescorted ship sped faster than the Japanese submarines watching for American ships, according to Capin. Capin was assigned to the USS West Virginia, the most severely damaged sunken battleship to be salvaged and returned to service after being ripped apart by as many as eight Japanese torpedoes during the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The refurbished ship was put back into service in September 1944, with most of the war already fought. Capin and crew defended the Philippine Islands from Japanese naval advances in the Battle of Leyte in the fall of 1944, and they went on to fight in the front lines at the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa in early 1945. Capin recalled watching U.S. Marines raise the flag on Mount Suribachi at Iwo Jima from the West Virginia as it traveled close to shore, providing fire support for the invasion, bombarding the island with 16-inch shells and destroying ammunition dumps and anti-aircraft gun positions. “The enemy was hiding in caves,” Capin said. “The guys on shore were suffering.”

From there, the West Virginia traveled a couple weeks later to Okinawa, where it shelled the island in advance of an American assault. Capin recalled a kamikaze plane landing on the boat in April 1945, but the bomb it carried had broken loose from its shackle and penetrated the second deck. “It didn’t explode due to a bent firing pin,” he said. Four soldiers were killed and seven injured in the crash. “We saw photos of their families and children,” Capin said shaking his head. “We were very lucky.” The West Virginia continued serving in the South Pacific for a few months, providing support for the Army and Marines at Okinawa and breaking up troop concentrations sheltering the enemy. In August, the West Virginia steamed toward Tokyo Bay.

“We heard the war was over and that the Japanese would be signing (a surrender) any minute,” Capin said. “We were very excited.” The West Virginia can be seen in the distance of photographs depicting the signing of the Instrument of Surrender that ended World War II. It was the only ship present that had been attacked at Pearl Harbor. Capin said the sailors looked over portside to see the Japanese delegation climb on board the USS Missouri for the signing with the Supreme Allied Commander, Army General Douglas MacArthur, and Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Pacific Commander in Chief, among others. The excitement of the return trip from Hawaii to San Diego heightened as the homeward bound banner flew in the wind, a two-foot white piece of fabric for every enlisted man on

Regional Roundup • South Bend bans bags for yard waste SOUTH BEND — The South Bend Common Council voted Monday to ban the use of plastic bags for yard waste, according to news reports. The South Bend Tribune reports that in September, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management cited the city’s composting center for accepting noncompostable waste and gave the city 30 days to come up with a plan to correct the problem. There is about 100,000 cubic yards of such waste at the center, the Tribune reports. According to the amendment to city code that passed, yard waste for pick-up must be placed in a biodegradable paper bag or other container approved by the city and separated from other trash or garbage.

Indy council opposes gay marriage ban INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis City-County Council has joined the city’s Republican mayor in opposing efforts to write Indiana’s ban on gay marriage into the state constitution.

Council members voted 22-6 Monday night in support of a resolution urging the Legislature to reject the proposed constitutional amendment. The resolution comes as organizers of a campaign against the amendment have won support from several prominent opponents, including Eli Lilly and Co., the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce and Indiana University. Democratic council Vice President John Barth, a sponsor of the resolution, said the city and state need to present themselves as welcoming places for all people.

Purdue researches see future with biometrics, not passwords WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Some Purdue University researchers are working on technology that could see all those passwords that computer users must punch in replaced with steps such as iris and fingerprint scans. The basement lab of Purdue University’s International Center for Biometrics Research is where such emerging biometric technologies are tested for weaknesses before going mainstream. Iris and fingerprint scans as well as facial and voice recognition are just a few of

the tools that can improve security while making lives easier, said Stephen Elliott, the center’s director. That technology can allow someone to log into a computer or activate a smartphone simply by swiping their fingerprint over a sensor. “I think the average person would tell you they have too many passwords and it’s a hassle to change them all the time, and therefore they use the same password for lots of things, which inherently makes that easier to break,” Elliott said.

Purdue remains top for visiting students WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — A new report shows Purdue University has maintained its standing as a top destination for international students among U.S. universities. The Institute of International Education, a nonprofit group working with the State Department, reports Purdue had 9,500 international students during the 2012-13 academic year. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign ranked first among U.S. public institutions with 9,800 international students. A private school, the University of Southern California, ranked first overall. Purdue had the largest number of undergraduate international students at nearly 5,000 in 2012-13.

Toys for Tots conducting final interviews this week BY AMY OBERLIN

AUBURN — A final Toys for Tots interview session is scheduled for Friday from 6-9 p.m. at 112 N. Depot St., Auburn. Toys for Tots provides gifts for children in needy families in Steuben and DeKalb counties through local donations. The program — a nationwide U.S. Marine Corps initiative — is headed by Melissa Coats of Auburn. She, her husband, Jamie, and a handful of helpers volunteer many hours as the holidays approach to coordinate interviews and donations. They begin working in mid-October, contacting local merchants and companies. For example, this year, Trin in Ashley offered to do an internal toy drive, with employees bringing in items for Toys for Tots. Boxes are set out at local businesses to accept donations of toys. Several interview sessions have been held, and


at this time 162 families in the two counties are going to be served by Toys for Tots, said Coats. “I’ve had several people email me, call me, saying they’ve missed them,” said Coats. After Friday, she plans to have her final tally for those who need to be served. She can be reached at or 908-2022. Toys for Tots has been operating in Steuben County for six years. It provides a couple of toys valued at $10-$15 and six to seven stocking stuffers along with an activity book for the entire family. “We always struggle with our newborn to 1-yearolds,” said Coats. Fewer donations are also left for youths 11-14 years old. “It’s still Christmas. It’s still a child who wants a present under the tree,”

Coats noted. For older children, hair and jewelry accessories and sports balls are favorite gifts, she said. The goal is to make sure every child has a great Christmas. Toys are expected to be distributed Dec. 14 in Steuben County. The location has not yet been determined.

Deaths & Funerals • Forrest Parks AVILLA — Forrest Earl Parks, age 81, died on Saturday, November 9, 2013, at his rural Avilla home. Mr. Parks was born in Kendallville, Indiana, on August 28, 1932, to the late Howard C. Parks and Arlene M. (Wooster) Parks. He graduated as class president Mr. Parks from Avilla High School in 1950. He married Monna Fay Miller on June 26, 1954, at the Methodist Church Mr. Parks in Avilla. Monna preceded his death on December 18, 2003. Forrest spent his entire life working on the family farm. He raised crops and hay, supplied lime for area farmers and hauled grain to Maumee, Ohio, for many years. Forrest was industrious and hardworking and held several other jobs over the years along with farming. He was employed as a custodian at Avilla School, assistant to the surveyor for the Indiana State Highway Department, school bus driver for East Noble School Corporation and he worked as a custodian at Richards Restaurants in Kendallville, Auburn and Columbia City. Forrest was an active, lifelong member of the Calvary United Methodist Church in Avilla where he was the Sunday school superintendent for many years. He was good at meeting new friends and neighbors and inviting them to church. Something else very important to Forrest was keeping the family tradition of making apple butter going. Survivors include his children: daughter, Molly Lemish of Avilla, daughter, Rebecca Kurtz of Auburn, son, Scott and Janice Parks of Avilla, son, Troy and Cathy Parks of Huntertown, daughter, Amy and Keith Thompson of Wolcottville, son, Andrew and Shannell Parks of Las Vegas, Nevada; 17 grandchildren: Jeremiah Lemish of Kendallville; Jamilyn Lemish of Lafayette, Indiana; Janelle Lemish of Conway, Arkansas; Doreen and Dave Vanderpool of Garrett; Sylvia and Mitch Figert of Wabash; Matthew Kurtz of Auburn; Joseph Parks of Middlebury; Cody Parks of Indianapolis; Kristina and Daniel Desper of Westfield;

Melissa Parks of Avilla; Kaylee McClanahan and Paige McClanahan, both of Huntertown; Skylar Parks of Huntertown; TJ Thompson and Arlene Thompson of Wolcottville; and Dominique Malveaux and Aurora Parks, both of Las Vegas; five great-grandchildren: Logan Brewer, Crystal Brewer, Conner Vanderpool, Haylee Figert and Hayden Figert; and a sister, Ellen and Bishop Holliman of Avilla.

Actress America Ferrera, left, appears on stage as Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai accepts The Women of the Year Fund Honoree Award on stage at the 2013 Glamour Women of the Year Awards on Monday, in New York.

At star-packed Glamour awards, Malala steals show NEW YORK (AP) — There was a flamboyant pop star. A legendary singer. A TV star, some supermodels, and one of the world’s most powerful philanthropists. Even a former secretary of state who may soon be running for president. But of all the prominent women who appeared onstage Monday night at the Glamour Women of the Year awards, no one received more acclaim and adoration than a teenager whom no one had heard of little more than a year ago — 16-year-old Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai. “We love you, Malala!” shouted a group of young girls from a high balcony in Carnegie Hall, where the annual event was held. The teenager blew back a kiss, and proceeded to give an impassioned speech. “I believe the gun has no power at all,” said Malala, who caught the world’s attention when the Taliban shot her in the head in October 2012 for criticizing the group’s interpretation of Islam, which limits girls’ access to education. She has since gained global prominence, has started The Malala Fund to support education for girls, and recently released a memoir, “I Am Malala.”

“I believe the gun has no power because a gun can only kill,” she said. “But a pen can give life.” It wasn’t just the crowd that was taken with Malala; her fellow honorees referred to her often as they took the stage, and the night’s most flamboyant honoree, Lady Gaga, said she wished this month’s Glamour magazine cover, which features her, had been devoted to Malala instead. “If I could forfeit my Glamour cover I would give it to Malala,” she said. In a long and sometimes rambling speech, the pop singer, who sported a huge mane of frizzy white hair, a glistening white suit and her typically sky-high platform shoes, also said she thought she looked too artificially beautiful on that cover. “I do not look like that when I wake up in the morning,” she said. Gaga added that despite her huge fame, “my true talent is not the clothes, and not the music. I really feel that what I am best at is seeing the potential in other people.” She referred to her campaign against bullying among young people, and recalled the case of a young fan who committed suicide in 2011 after being bullied, Jamey Rodemeyer.

Historian shares about life of Civil War soldier John Houlton Chapter learns about Joshua L. Chamberlain AUBURN — David Dew, a 38-year United States history teacher, shared about the life of a Civil War solider Nov. 9 during the John Houlton Chapter meeting of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Dew recounted the story of Joshua L. Chamberlain and how his early home life led him to excel as a citizen soldier in the Civil War. Chamberlain joined the 20th Maine Regiment under the command of General Ames and from him learned military skills that led him to hold the Union line at Little Round Top in the Battle of Gettysburg. Chamberlain commanded the Union troops during the surrender ceremony of the Confederate Army in 1865. He ordered the Union soldiers to stand in respectful silence and salute as the Confederate soldiers turned in their arms. Chamberlain’s symbolic action was helpful in the long process of mending America back into a nation. Not only did Chamberlain distinguish himself in the military, he was a brilliant student, teaching himself Greek in order to pass the entrance exams to Bowdoin College. Planning to enter the ministry, he attended Bangor Theological Seminary, where all classes were in German. Chamberlain became fluent in nine languages, including Penobscot, the language of the indigenous

Chamberlain died in 1914, a distinguished educator, military hero, and surveyor of the Port of Portland. Since Dew’s retirement five years ago from Northwood Middle School, he has traveled and researched a number of historic personalities, including George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Dew, who recently became a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, lives in Fort Wayne and is a frequent speaker. After refreshments, Regent Betty Bridgwater held a brief business meeting.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Adding pressure to fix the administration’s problem-plagued health care program, former President Bill Clinton says President Barack Obama should find a way to let people keep their health coverage, even if it means changing the law. Clinton says Obama should “honor the commitment that the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got.” The former president, a Democrat who has helped Obama promote the 3-yearold health law, becomes the latest in Obama’s party to urge the president to live up to a promise he made repeatedly, declaring that the if Americans liked their health care coverage, they

would be able to keep it under the new law. Instead, millions of Americans have started receiving insurance cancellation letters. That, coupled with the troubled launch of the health care law’s enrollment website, has prompted Republican critics and frustrated Democrats to seek corrections in the law. House Republicans have drafted legislation to give consumers the opportunity to keep their coverage. Ten Senate Democrats are pushing for an unspecified extension of the sign-up period and several pressed Obama to do so in a private White House meeting last week. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., has proposed legislation that would require insurance companies to

reinstate the canceled policies. The White House says it is working on changes that would ease the impact of the cancellations for some people. But the fixes under consideration are administrative actions, not congressional changes to the law. White House spokesman Jay Carney on Tuesday reiterated the White House argument that the cancellations apply to only about 5 percent of Americans who obtained health care insurance. He also argued that more than half of those people receiving termination notices would benefit from better insurance at lower prices either through expanded Medicaid or through new health care marketplaces.

HAMILTON: School earns sportsmanship award FROM PAGE A1

one is not secured, and the district would lost the earmarked dollars. In a meeting Monday night, the school board heard that a committee has been organized to launch a fundraising campaign to build a new playground at the elementary school. Tonya Burns and Holly Law-Bireley told the board the current playground — a wooden structure with a pea stone surface — is outdated and not up to code. The project calls for a new playground that potentially would be handicap-accessible and include a chair lift,

if funding allows. Law-Bireley told the board the committee hopes to have the playground built within a year. The group is working to raise $100,000 for the project. It hopes to receive grant dollars to meet most of that goal, Law-Bireley said. The project could fall in line with a plan athletic director Jesse Webb has to build a handicap-accessible ramp to the softball field, he said. Also Monday, the board: • heard from Webb that the school has been awarded the Indiana High School Athletic Associa-

tion’s School Sportsmanship Award for the 2012-2013 school year. It’s the first time the school has won the award, given annually to a school which displays exemplary sportsmanship qualities in many aspects. The school received a banner to display in its gymnasium. Webb said the school’s Spirit Club was instrumental in the school winning the award. “Our Spirit Club, since it’s been formed, has helped with our students and student-athletes making sure they’re good sports on the court and off,” Webb said.

EATON: Project led to several safety improvements FROM PAGE A1

assembly lines. The project was completed in October. As each step was implemented, production operators, supervisors and engineers responsible for each affected cell worked together to identify other opportunities for improvement. In one area, a new hoist with multi-speed controls was installed that is much easier for workers to operate than the previous system. Visual alerts have been added to trigger inventory replenishment within cells, and material now is delivered to the edge of the various work cells to eliminate forklift traffic within cells. Safety improvements included installing additional guards, bumpers and emergency stop switches. New visual controls identify safety equipment and procedures.

In conjunction with the Material Flow Project, Auburn employees installed high-efficiency lighting and fixtures from Cooper, which Eaton acquired last year. Combined, the new fixtures and sensors save more than 600,000 kilowatthours of electricity per year and provide a brighter work environment. The plant also added a high-efficiency air compressor that reduces electricity and gas consumption by 4.4 percent and 17.2 percent, respectively. “Everyone at Auburn and throughout Eaton is committed to continuous improvement, which is reflected in our Materials Flow Project,” Beam said. “We also are sharing information and lessons learned from the project with Eaton’s clutch facilities in Charlotte, N.C., and San Luis Potosi, Mexico.”

The Auburn plant employs more than 175 people. Eaton said it contributes nearly $200 million annually to Indiana’s economy through taxes, wages and supplier impact. In addition, the Auburn facility and its employees donated $10,750 to local community organizations in 2012. Eaton is a power management company providing energy-efficient solutions that help effectively manage electrical, hydraulic and mechanical power. A global technology leader, Eaton acquired Cooper Industries plc in November 2012. The 2012 revenue of the combined companies was $21.8 billion on a pro forma basis. Eaton has approximately 102,000 employees and sells products to customers in more than 175 countries. Its website is

GARRETT — Garrett senior Brandi Dawson sent notice to Churubusco immediately that her numbers from last season were not a fluke. The Railroader probably couldn’t have kicked off her senior campaign any better. Dawson, who led the team in scoring a season ago with more than 17 points per game, made her first six shots in Tuesday night’s season opener and finished with 31 points and 15 rebounds en route to a 69-40 win over the visiting Eagles. “To be honest, it just came naturally (Tuesday night),” Dawson said. “When I looked up at the scoreboard, I just wanted to keep going and score as many as I could. I just went with the flow. “I just felt like that the team was definitely going to work together and we were all excited for this first game. We just knew that we had to do what we had to

do on the court, and we did.” Dawson also chipped in four assists, three blocks and two steals for good measure. For the game, she finished 12 of 21 from the field and 6 of 7 from the free-throw line. She scored 20 of her 31 points in the first half. “It’s been a process since her freshman year. She understands what’s going on,” said Garrett head coach Bob Lapadot. “Every time something went wrong, she just played harder. And that’s a good leader for the rest of our team to see, and they fed off her. We got the crowd into it, and we were able to run and get some other stuff when they concentrated on Brandi.” But Dawson was far from the only contributor. Classmate Kaitlin Wisel scored nine points and also chipped in four assists — all of the latter coming in the first quarter. The two have played together for a number of years now and the rapport they’ve built on the court

With girls basketball season having started on Tuesday night, now’s as good of time as any to whip around DeKalb County and take a preseason look at the area basketball teams. DEKALB The Barons finished last season with an 11-10 record as coach Nick David enters his seventh season at the helm of the program. David has an embarrassment of riches as the top seven scorers from last year’s team are back, led by 6-foot-3 senior forward/center Hayley Martin (15.8 points, 10.2 rebounds per game in 2012-13). Martin will have plenty of help in aiding a DeKalb team looking for its first sectional title since 2006. Top contributors from last year also returning are 5-8 senior guard/forward Baylee Rinehart (12.7 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 2.1 assists, 1.2 steals per game), 5-10 senior guard/forward Brooke Leins (7.0 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 2.5 apg) and 5-9 junior guard/forward Rachel Ehmke (5.7 ppg, 2.5 rpg). Martin was a KPC Media Group All-Area selection last year. Also in the mix to earn starting varsity spots are 5-8 junior guard/ forward Maddy Fifer (1.5 ppg, 1.0 rpg, 2.0 apg, 1.0 spg) and 5-9 senior guard/forward Kendall Kelley (0.9 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 1.1 apg, 1.3 spg).

Hoosiers avoid LIU upset bid BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Tom Crean and Indiana fans kept shaking their heads Tuesday night. Eventually, Indiana’s players got the message. They spent the second half driving hard to the basket to create open outside shots, and eventually Will Sheehey took advantage. He made back-to-back 3-pointers late in the game, and the Hoosiers survived two potentially winning shots in the final 5 seconds to hold off pesky LIU-Brooklyn 73-72. “I knew Will would make shots at the end because he does it for us every day,” Indiana point guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell said. For the Hoosiers (2-0), it was a ragged night. They shot 38 percent from the field and finished 7 of 26 on 3-pointers. They had more turnovers (14) than assists (13). They gave up nine offensive rebounds and at one point missed 16 consecutive 3-pointers. The combination created angst throughout the usually loud and raucous Assembly Hall. Crean, the Hoosiers coach, was as active on the sideline as he was for some of last season’s biggest games when the Hoosiers were ranked or playing the nation’s No. 1 team. Indiana fans repeatedly jumped to their feet in the second half, only to sit down when the game-changing spurt they expected didn’t materialize. And those same fans held their breath both times Blackbirds point guard Jason Brickman came within a whisker of pulling off a stunning upset. His layup with 5 seconds left was too hard and his 3-pointer was on target but fell just short as the buzzer sounded. That’s how close LIU-Brooklyn SEE HOOSIERS, PAGE B2

An overdue introduction from the new guy It only took me seven weeks to sit down and write this introductory column, but hey, better late than never. For most readers of The Star, it has probably been a bit surprising to see someone other than Mark Murdock writing stories about DeKalb County sports. It seems a bit surreal for me, too, trust me. Mark has been the sportswriter here for nearly my entire life and, on a smaller scale, wrote every football story during my own four years playing high school football. And now, after nearly 30 years, Mark has taken a new position within the company and it’s an absolute honor to be the person tabbed to fill Mark’s humongous shoes. On nearly a daily basis, I’m reminded of Mark’s dedication and contributions to the DeKalb County sports scene, and I can only hope to be just as successful. No two writers do things the

same way, so whatever changes do occur in the paper, hopefully they’ll be well-received. I’ll try to fill in my background as best I can. Before getting hired at The Star, I was the sports editor at The Frankfort Times for 5 1/2 years. The dynamics here in DeKalb ‘PHIL’ County aren’t that -OSOPHY different from Clinton County: Phil one big school (DeKalb/Frankfort) Friend and three to four smaller schools (Garrett-Eastside-Lakewood Park-Hamilton/ Clinton CentralClinton Prairie-Rossville). While at The Times, I tried my best to

provide complete coverage for all four schools, and that won’t change for the five schools here. I have no doubts that if I fail in this endeavor, you’ll let me know as quickly as possible. I am a 1998 graduate of DeKalb, and played football for four years. I only started varsity one of those years (1997, current Athletic Director Ron Kock’s final season as head coach) but was a witness — and mostly, a tackling dummy — to some of the best years DeKalb football has ever produced. In a previous life, I was also a junior high football coach, coaching at Wes-Del for two seasons, and at Garrett in 2003 and 2004. That 2003 season, as you’ll recall, was a magical one for the Railroaders as they won a regional title — 10 years ago this week, to be precise. I went to college at Ball State University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in secondary

education in 2003 and a master’s in journalism in 2007. I certainly took the path less taken to get where I am now, but wouldn’t trade it for anything. As I always tell people, at the end of the day it’s hard to complain about a job where you write about sports for a living. If you’re still reading at this point, you’re probably a heavy follower of the local high school sports scene. Be sure to follow me on Twitter @pfriend_kpc. I tweet numerous updates at games I’m in-person for and will post results/ stats on a nightly basis. I’ll also be doing some different social media-type things as well, such as podcasts and regular blog posts on our website at Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you at the games.

GARRETT: Railroaders led 16-1 in first quarter FROM PAGE B1

Lapadot, while impressed with Dawson’s play, was also pleased to see balance within the rest of the roster. Besides Wisel, sophomore Taylor Smith had nine points and four rebounds, junior Emily Somers hit a pair of 3-pointers for six points, and senior Rachel Stafford had six points and seven rebounds. “That’s what I’m happy about,” Lapadot said. Garrett (1-0) put the game away early, jumping out to a 16-1 lead a little more than halfway through the first quarter thanks to 13 points from Dawson. The Railroaders took a 22-5 lead into the second quarter and later went on a 10-3 run to lead 32-8.

Churubusco (0-1) used a 7-0 run to cut the advantage to 32-15, but Garrett responded with a 10-0 spurt covering the second and third quarters to lead 42-15 with 6:33 left in the third quarter. The spread would get worse. A 9-0 run — backed by six Stafford points — gave the Railroaders a 58-22 later in the period. Garrett’s biggest lead of the night came at 69-30 less than halfway through the fourth quarter following a pair of free throws by Bailey Sutton. Garrett’s defense also did the job, forcing the Eagles into 15 turnovers and 10 of 45 shooting from the field. “That’s what we wanted,” Dawson said. “We knew that we could do it if we played

how we did (Tuesday night). We still have a lot more to practice on and we will get better as the season goes along.” Kate Cooper and Jazlyn Needler led Churubusco with eight points each. Montana Martin, Alisha Farner and Alyssa Anderson all scored six points. JUNIOR VARSITY Garrett 32, Churubusco 22 Sutton led the Railroaders with 10 points and four rebounds. Tori Baver had six points, Kallie Knott tallied five points and five assists, Lyndsey Gibson had five points and three steals, Amanda Stump had four points and Sloane Peterson had four steals.

Colts get early start on fixing offense INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck prefers simple solutions. So when he was asked this week about the Colts’ growing propensity for slow starts, he came up with one word: Execution. What has been a seasonlong concern has suddenly emerged as a glaring problem that needs to be fixed — and fast. “It looks lethargic,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “We talk all the time, you don’t win games in the National Football League, you lose them. We’re doing everything possible to put ourselves in these holes. We found out (Sunday) that we put ourselves in one that we couldn’t find the magic to get out of.” Few teams have been as successful in the second half as the Colts (6-3), and few quarterbacks have been as good at rallying a team as Luck whose 10 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter are the most of any player in his first two seasons since the 1970 merger. But Indy doesn’t want to keep putting Luck in such tenuous situations. The obvious solution is better starts. Indy’s numbers are

stunning. Over the past two weeks, the Colts have punted 10 times, had six three-andouts, a blocked field goal, a fumble returned for a touchdown, a punt returned for a touchdown and given up TD passes of 62, 41 and 57 yards in the first half. Not surprisingly, they’ve been outscored 49-3 during that stretch — something that must change Thursday night at Tennessee (4-5). It’s no fluke. Indy has faced first-quarter double-digit deficits against Miami, Seattle and Houston and it took the Rams 15½ minutes to do the same thing in Sunday’s 38-8 blowout. What’s wrong? “Like I said, we’re not the hunters no more. We’re the hunted,” cornerback Vontae Davis said. “So teams are coming out throwing punches at us.” Injuries have hurt, too. Running back Vick Ballard (knee) and tight end Dwayne Allen (hip), both starters, went down with season-ending injuries after Week 1. Left guard Donald Thomas (quad) was lost for the season in Week 2, and Ballard’s replacement, Ahmad Bradshaw, started two games before a neck

injury ended his season in Week 3. Those four injuries were a major blow to Indy’s transformation from a pass-first team to a power-running team. However, the biggest hit came Oct. 20 when Wayne tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Without Wayne, Luck is completing just 54 percent of his passes and while he has thrown for 624 yards, four TDs and three interceptions — numbers more befitting his rookie season than reflecting the progression he’s made in Year 2. The running game, meanwhile, has become stagnant. Indy has run just 28 times for 87 yards the past two weeks as it tried to play catch-up. Even Luck acknowledges it’s been different as his young receivers try to replace Wayne’s Pro Bowl productivity. “There is a bit of an adjustment, but there’s no excuse for not doing things or not getting better and continuing to improve,” Luck said. “Reggie was such a huge part of the offense, still is a huge part of the offense. His leadership, that role he brings. Hopefully, we

don’t miss a beat, but there is a bit of an adjustment.” While Luck and the offense have received most of the blame lately, they’re certainly not alone. Of the 193 points allowed by Indy’s defense this season, 126 came in the first two quarters. But this isn’t about assessing blame, it’s about finding ways to improve. “We dug ourselves in a hole and the quicksand was too fast. We couldn’t pull ourselves out,” defensive end Cory Redding said of Sunday’s game. “Whatever it is, we’ve still got seven games left. We’ve got to continue to keep working, keep striving to fix whatever it may be.” Luck agrees, and he has a pretty good idea of what it will take. “I think there is a lack of execution,” he said. “Offensively, when you’re putting drives together to start off, if you can get a good 10, 12-play drive and get points, I guess that constitutes a fast start. “We’re working at it. That’s why we go out to practice, to get better at what we need to get better at. Guys are excited to get out there and right our wrongs.”


Indiana forward Jeremy Hollowell, right, blocks the shot of LIU Brooklyn guard Jason Brickman in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Bloomington on Tuesday.

HOOSIERS: Freshman Vonleh gets second straight double-double FROM PAGE B1

(1-1) was to beating a Big Ten foe for just the third time in school history. “If we didn’t have the capacity to get better, if we didn’t have the capacity to improve inside the game, if we didn’t have the capacity to understand what the game was giving us, we would have lost by 10 or 12 points,” Crean said. “But as many mistakes as we made, we had enough to get over the top.” Indiana got 17 points from Ferrell. Freshman Noah Vonleh added with 17 points and 11 rebounds, his second straight doubledouble, and the Hoosiers shot 51.6 percent from the field in the second half. They barely avoided losing their first home game to a non-conference foe since falling to Loyola (Md.) in December 2009. And LIU-Brooklyn played well enough to win. Troy Joseph led the Blackbirds with 16 points and six rebounds. E.J. Reed and Gilbert Parga each had 15 points, and Brickman scored 11 points and had 10 assists as he continued his quest to become the fourth player in Division I history with 1,000 career assists. Brickman just couldn’t get those last two shots to go in. “I saw the clock, I saw 1 second and I just tried to get it up,” he said. “It looked good, but it was short.” For most of the night, the Blackbirds dictated the pace in a rare early season contest between defending conference champs. LIU-Brooklyn used a

14-0 first-half run to wipe out Indiana’s 10-4 lead and didn’t trail again until Sheehey made a 15-footer with 17:33 left in the game. Brickman managed to keep LIU-Brooklyn under control, rallying to rebuild a 50-46 lead, neither team led by more than four over the final 13½ minutes. Sheehey finally tied the score for the ninth and last time when he knocked down a 3 with 2:43 to go. He did it again on Indiana’s next possession, giving Indiana a 73-70 lead with 1:57 left. “I felt like more toward the end, we got down and we had more of a will,” Ferrell said. Thirty seconds later, Brickman answered with two free throws to make it 73-72, setting up a wild finish. Indiana had a chance to seal the victory after Brickman missed the layup, but Devin Davis missed the front end of a one-and-one. Brickman then grabbed the rebound and dribbled to the other end of the court, launching a 25-footer that hit nothing but air as the buzzer sounded. “We wanted to get it up the court quick,” Brickman said with a dejected expression. “If they made them both, we were going to take it out real quick and just try to get an open shot. But it just came up short at the end.” Giving Crean, the Hoosiers and their fans one last chance to exhale. “I think we really had to win tonight,” Crean said. “We won, and I thought they played fantastic.”

Northern Illinois, Ball State set to clash DE KALB, Ill. (AP) — Two of the nation’s most productive offenses clash as No. 20 Northern Illinois seeks to extend the nation’s longest current home winning streak Wednesday night. The Huskies (9-0, 5-0 Mid-American West) go for their 25th straight home win against Ball State (9-1, 6-0) at 7 p.m. (CT) at Huskie Stadium. “It’s going to be a big challenge for us,” said Northern Illinois coach Rod Carey. “They’re the best team I’ve seen on film right now going into a game and how they execute their game plan overall. . They have a taste for winning and confidence is an amazing thing.” The winner takes over the MAC West lead and be front-runner for a berth in the Dec. 6 conference championship game. The Cardinals have won seven straight since a 34-27 loss at North Texas on Sept. 14. Quarterback Keith Wenning ranks fourth nationally with 3,164 yards passing and Willie Snead is third in receiving with 74 catches for 1,175 yards. His 12 touchdown receptions are tied

for third in the country. Last season against the Huskies, Wenning threw a school record 71 passes and completed 42 in a 35-23 loss. “Offensively they’re very aggressive,” Northern Illinois defensive lineman Ken Bishop said. “We know they like to throw the ball. They come out and attack expeditiously, so we’re just going to have to make sure we’re prepared.” The Huskies’ pass defense is 107th in the nation. But Northern Illinois compensates with a top 10 offense that has generated 160 points in its last three games, including a season-high 63 points on Nov. 2 at Massachusetts. It’s all led by quarterback Jordan Lynch, who is 164-of258 for 1,871 yards and 19 touchdowns and five interceptions this season. “He’s probably underrated as a passer,” Ball State coach Pete Lembo said. “You get so geared up to stop the run game — the quarterback run game and all the misdirection — that they have some good opportunities to throw it on the perimeter. Their staff is very wise in terms of taking advantage of what the defense is giving them.”

SPORTS BRIEFS • Chiefs receiver Bowe arrested RIVERSIDE, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested outside Kansas City over the weekend on charges of speeding and possessing marijuana, throwing his status for a pivotal AFC West showdown against the Denver Broncos into question. Bowe was pulled over for going about 48 mph in a 35 mph zone, police in suburban Riverside said Tuesday. Police said an officer smelled “a strong odor of marijuana from inside of the vehicle,” and asked Bowe and two passengers to get out of the car. Police then used a dog to search for illegal substances and found a bag with Bowe’s wallet and two containers holding what the officer suspected was marijuana. One container held 6.6 grams of the substance, and the other had 3.8 grams, or about one-third of an ounce in all. Bowe was cited for speeding and possession of a controlled substance, police said. He posted $750 bond and is scheduled to appear in Riverside court on Dec. 18. Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews said the team was aware of the situation but declined further comment. Bowe’s agent, Todd France, did not return a message seeking comment. It’s unclear whether Bowe will be available for Sunday’s game. While penalties have varied, Commissioner Roger Goodell historically has suspended players one game without pay and fined them an additional game check for possession of marijuana, once the case is finalized.

13 baseball free agents turn down qualifying offers ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Baseball’s annual gathering of general managers began Monday when $14.1 million qualifying offers were turned down by all 13 free agents who received them from their former teams, a group that included Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox. Three New York Yankees also said no thanks: Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson and Hiroki Kuroda. The others turning down the offers were Atlanta’s Brian McCann, Cincinnati’s Shin-Soo Choo, Cleveland’s Ubaldo Jimenez, Kansas City’s Ervin Santana, St. Louis’ Carlos Beltran, Seattle’s Kendrys Morales and Texas’ Nelson Cruz. “I don’t think it’s that particularly surprising that all the offers were turned down across baseball,” Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said. New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson interpreted the turndowns as an indicator a bull market is possible. “That ought to tell you a little bit about their expectations,” he said. If a player who turned down the offer signs with a new team, his former club would receive an extra amateur draft pick at the end of the first round next June. All 22 players given qualifying offers have said no during two offseasons under the new system.

Byrd, Phillies close in on deal ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Marlon Byrd and the Philadelphia Phillies closed in Tuesday on a $16 million, two-year contract, a deal that would come less than a year after he was playing in Mexico’s winter league. A person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday an agreement could be put in place soon. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. A 36-year-old outfielder, Byrd hit a career-high 24 homers for the New York Mets and Pittsburgh, which acquired him on Aug. 27. He batted .364 with one homer and five RBIs in six postseason games after hitting .291 during the season with 88 RBIs, one short of his career best. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. declined comment. “If you don’t want to give up your first-round pick, Marlon Byrd is arguably the best available outfield bat,” Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. “We feared he was out of our price range immediately. We stayed engaged in the process, and Marlon and his agents talked about wanting to come back to Pittsburgh. He loved his time there. The environment and playing for a winner and playing in front of that fan base was something that really intrigued him.” A career .280 hitter with 106 homers and 533 RBIs, Byrd was released by Boston in June 2012, then given a 50-game suspension 11 days later following a positive test for Tamoxifen, which can reduce side effects of steroid use and increase testosterone.

Valparaiso lets Carlson go VALPARAISO (AP) — Valparaiso football coach Dale Carlson was fired on Sunday, a day after the Crusaders lost 72-12 to Butler. Athletic director Mark LaBarbera announced the move Sunday in a news release. Carlson was in his fourth season leading the Valpo program and departs with a 3-40 record. The Crusaders are 1-9 and 1-6 in the Pioneer League. Carlson was the first football coach at Ohio Dominican and Tri-State universities. Tri-State is now called Trine University. He led the Thunder to 47 wins and two NAIA playoff appearances from 1994 to 2002. Assistant head coach Mike Gravier will serve as interim coach for Valpo’s season finale at home against Dayton on Saturday.








My new Internet friend I have made a new Internet friend. His name is Mailer Daemon. Faithful readers will remember this is not my first technological friend. I have a friend named Dave who calls me incessantly to remind me when my medicine is ready to be picked up. I talk to Dave more frequently than anyone else in my life (which is a sad commentary on both my social life and the amount of sustainable medications I require to remain afloat). MATT Anyway, every morning for the last couple of GETTS weeks I wake to find that Mailer Daemon (plain old “Daemon” to his friends) has written me a multitude of emails. All of them, at least so far, have been to tell me that emails I have sent to various people from my account were not able to be sent because the address I sent them to did not exist. Over the last six or In an effort to express seven days, there have my appreciation for been maybe a hundred such his heart-felt sentiment corresponregarding my emails dences. and their lack of And to my knowledge, delivery, I decided to I haven’t email him back. knowingly sent any of these emails in the first place. None of the addresses in these emails is in my address book. So one of two things is happening. The first option is that in my sleep I am sending emails to random people. I would not discount this option offhand. My mind, uh, isn’t what it used to be. At least I don’t think it is. The second option is that somebody has hijacked my email account and is now sending spam emails or viruses from me. This is not good. On the bright side, this is not happening behind my back. My good friend Daemon is continuously letting me know this is happening. I appreciate his concern for my well-being. The messages from Daemon are consistent: “I’m afraid I wasn’t able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I’ve given up. Sorry it didn’t work out.” What a great guy. His talk of fear and his apologetic nature bespeak a man in touch with his feelings. In an effort to express my appreciation for his heart-felt sentiment regarding my emails and their lack of delivery, I decided to email him back. I wrote (quite eloquently if I do say so myself): “I did not send this.” Obviously, I want to impress my new friend. I didn’t want Daemon to think I send so many emails to people who don’t get them. The cold, calculated response I got back: “Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently …” Sigh. Just like my friend Dave. After the first 20 or so times Dave called to tell me my funny-writing medicine was ready, I quit trying to strike up a conversation with him. He never told me how his family was or how work was going. Dave is a guy big on personal privacy. I like that in a friend. I may email Daemon and give him Dave’s phone number. I really think they’d hit it off.

Letters to The Editor • Let the people decide on same-sex marriage To the editor: Referencing David Powers’ letter Nov 10. Mr. Powers, in your article I kept reading “me-me-me.” Not once did I read about how the constituents want Mr. Smaltz to vote on HJR6. This is why I didn’t vote for you, you don’t seem to care what the district people desire, this seems to be about what you believe, what you want and if someone differs, they don’t belong. I appreciate that Mr. Smaltz has not decided an opinion yet, or at least vocalized it. He isn’t voting on this as an individual, he is supposed to be voting as an elected official, for the people he represents. I want him to fully understand the bill before voting, to ask his constituents what they think before deciding how to vote, and a referendum is the best choice in my opinion. Let the people decide, isn’t that the most basic of conservative principles? It was your statement, “Especially since the very definition of marriage as between one man and one woman provides not only for the structure of family and children but also speaks to the very foundation of a free society” that really made me pay attention. The very foundation of our free society is now based upon one woman and one man being married? Not a foundation of personal rights, not a foundation of equal rights, not even a foundation of law, only a marriage between a man and a woman. Allowing same-sex marriage is going to result in a “non free” society and all my individual rights will cease? Your definition of marriage provides for the ONLY structure of family? The years that I raised my children as a single parent, we were not a structured family? I will never understand why so many conservatives fear change except you fear others not being controlled. Irony, conservatism is supposed to be about individual choices, individual rights … or is it only conservatism when they agree with your thoughts?

Society is changing, you can be part of the change, or be left behind. I hope Hoosiers are willing to put fear aside and consider what examples we have become for our youth, the ones seeking the change. I would like if our youth would speak out on this topic instead of just the elder generations. Dave Rodecap Auburn

Voters prefer campaigns based on issues, policies, not negativity To the editor: I would like respond to David Powers’ remarks in the letter published on Sunday Nov. 10. The DeKalb County Republican Party’s goals are to provide the people of DeKalb County with quality conservative candidates for elected offices. Our mantra is “Promoting the highest possible standards in public service.” Mr. Powers’ letter attacking a respected elected official and the county Republican Party in the manner and tone he used is disturbing and does not reflect the high standards our party expects, especially from one who desires to hold public office. Mr. Powers references “the Republican godfathers” and “establishment Republican kingmakers of the Republican Party.” The DeKalb County Republican Party welcomes all Republican candidates and does not endorse any particular candidate during a primary. The people of DeKalb County and voters of House District 52, not “the godfathers” or “kingmakers,” chose Ben Smaltz in the primary with 66 percent of the vote in a four-way race. (Mr. Powers garnered second place with 17 percent.) Should Mr. Powers choose again to enter his name as a candidate, I would like to remind him, and any other candidate, that the voters of DeKalb County would prefer a campaign based on issues, policies and what the candidate

has to offer instead of negativity, personal attacks and one based on the tone in which he prefers to write. We prefer and expect candidates who also believe in higher standards. Thank you. Brad McDaniel Chairman, DeKalb County Republican Party

Voters will smile when voting for Smaltz in next election To the editor: I recently read the latest attack on Ben Smaltz by Mr. David Powers and have had enough. Mr. Powers is great at a few things. He likes to attack without substance, he likes to offer no solutions to the issues that hamper the state, and he is what he called Mr. Smaltz, a coward. I attended the counting of the ballots and was there when it was confirmed that Mr. Smaltz won the election by a amazingly large margin over Mr. Powers. I also noticed that Mr. Powers hightailed it to the door without even doing what a man of his claimed stature would do, that is congratulate Mr. Smaltz. That is the definition of a coward. I have talked to Mr. Smaltz on countless occasions. He takes the time, and he delivers the answers. He is not without a plan like Mr. Powers. Mr. Smaltz answers questions. He knows what Auburn and District 52 need. These are the type of politicians this country needs. People with a plan, and the ability to execute the plan. Not someone that is living by his past failures. I’m proud that Mr. Smaltz doesn’t define what Mr. Powers is. A typical politician. A politician that likes to attack then hide behind the disingenuous print of his disdain. Auburn has proved that it is better than what Mr. Powers can deliver and they proved it in the last election. I know that my peers will be smiling when they vote for Mr. Smaltz in the next election. They see through the charade of reality that Mr. Powers is living in. Glen Bailey Leo

Farm Bill threatens citizens’ right to know BY PATRICE MCDERMOTT

Families who live near or share waterways with large corporate farms or concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) have a critical need to know some basic facts about these operations. The public’s right to this information, however, could be stripped away by the Farm Bill under debate in Congress. Negotiators from the House and Senate are meeting to try to develop a compromise between the House-passed version of the Farm Bill and what was passed by the Senate. Among the differences between the bills, the House’s version includes language that unnecessarily cuts off public access to basic information about livestock and agricultural operations. We understand that the House’s intent is to make sure that the government does not release farmers’ personal information. But, there are two major problems with the way that the House’s approach to this: one, the language ignores that the law already includes strong protections for personal privacy; and two, the language is so broad that it wraps up information about corporate farms with small farm operations. Earlier this year the Environmental

Protection Agency released the information of around 80,000 livestock operations across the country to environmental groups. After hearing from affected farmers and members of Congress, the EPA determined that it improperly released personal information. The EPA asked that the requesters return the information and the requesters complied, agreeing to return the original documents and destroy all copies of the information in their possession. In other words, the EPA determined that existing protections for personal privacy should have prevented them from releasing this information in the first place. Beyond being an over-reaction to the controversy surrounding the EPA’s actions, the House’s language sets a terrible precedent for extending the Freedom of Information Act’s personal privacy protections to corporations. The House’s failure to define “owners” or “operators” means that the EPA will be required to deny members of the public access to not only small family operations but to large corporate operations as well. In a recent Supreme Court case, FEC vs. ATT, the Court ruled that Congress never intended for corporations to enjoy such protections under the FOIA. To extend these

Thanksgiving becoming new Black Friday

Putin promises to increase military help to Vietnam HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that his country will expand its military supplies to Vietnam, as he held talks with his Vietnamese counterpart to boost ties between the former ideological allies. Military and energy cooperation topped the agenda during the talks between Putin and Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang. “We have had specific discussions on military cooperation,” Putin, who was on a one-day visit, told reporters via a translator in a joint press briefing in Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital. “We plan to expand the supplies of Russian military products to Vietnam.” Russia remains the main supplier of military hardware to Vietnam, and plans are being worked out to produce some military equipment in the Southeast Asian country with assistance from Russian companies. Last week, Russia handed over the first of six diesel-electric Kilo Class submarines in a deal signed in 2009. The two presidents witnessed the signing of more than a dozen agreements covering military, oil and gas, education and health care cooperation.

American Airlines, US airways will be allowed to merge WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department says it has reached an agreement to allow American Airlines and US Airways to merge, creating the world’s biggest airline. The agreement requires the airlines to scale back the size of the merger at Washington’s Reagan National Airport and in other big cities. In August, the government sued to block the merger, saying it would restrict competition and drive up prices for consumers on hundreds of routes around the country. The airlines have said their deal would increase competition by creating another big competitor to United Airlines and Delta Air Lines, which grew through recent mergers. The settlement reached Tuesday would require approval by a federal judge in Washington and eliminate the need for a trial that had been set to begin Nov. 25. It would require American and US Airways to give up takeoff and landing rights or slots at Reagan National and New York’s LaGuardia Airport and gates at airports in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas and Miami to low-cost carriers.

Pianist in Spain may be prosecuted for practicing MADRID (AP) — To most people, noise pollution is a jet engine roaring over their head. For one Spanish woman, it was a neighbor playing the piano more softly than a spoken conversation. The woman has taken her neighbors in the apartment below — a 27-year-old pianist and her parents — to court. Now prosecutors want to send all three to jail for over seven years on charges of psychological damage and noise pollution. Neighbors often complain about street and bar noise in Spain, but prosecutors seeking jail time for someone practicing the piano is unheard of — especially since that musician is now a professional concert pianist. At the trial in the northeastern city of Gerona, Sonia Bosom claimed she suffered noise pollution from 2003 to 2007 due to the five-days-a-week, eight-hour practice sessions of Laia Martin, who lived below her in the northeastern town of Puigcerda.



Antony Wood, executive director of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat announces Tuesday that New York City’s One World Trade Center, right, will become the tallest building in the United States upon completion,

dethroning Chicago’s Willis Tower. The Height Committee of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat said the needle atop the skyscraper is not an antenna but a spire, and thus is a permanent part of the building.

New World Trade Center to become nation’s tallest CHICAGO (AP) — The new World Trade Center tower in New York will replace Chicago’s Willis Tower as the nation’s tallest building when it is completed next year, an international panel of architects announced Tuesday. The Height Committee of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat said that because the needle atop the New York skyscraper is a permanent spire and not an antenna it can be counted when measuring the structure’s height. The needle, measuring 408 feet tall, was more than enough to confirm Chicago is the Second City when it comes to tall buildings. With the needle, 1 World Trade Center is a symbolically important 1,776 feet tall. Without it, the building would have been only 1,368 feet tall — well short of the

1,451-foot Willis Tower. At stake was more than just the pride of two cities that feast on superlatives and the tourist dollars that might follow: 1 World Trade Center, with its beacon on top will stand as a monument to those killed in the 9/11 attacks, and its architects had sought to capture the echo of America’s founding year in the structure’s height. Not only that, but the building’s height without the needle also holds symbolism because at 1,368 feet it is the height of the original World Trade Center. Antony Wood, the council’s executive director, said the needle is particularly important as a “structural and symbolic element.” Further, he said, the decision to put the spire atop the building was part of a ‘quest” to build a permanent

reminder of what the nation went through. “This was not an economic quest for bragging rights to the U.S.’s tallest,’ he said. “This was a quest to put something meaningful and symbolic on that site because of the horrible history of what happened on that site.” He said the antennae on top of the Willis Tower help to make the committee’s point about permanence, explaining that when the building went up there were no antennae, and that the original antennae have been replaced with taller ones. Wood also made another point that, though not a factor on the committee’s decision, is significant: that the Willis Tower will continue to be an attraction for years just like the Empire State Building is decades after it, too, was eclipsed by taller buildings.

NEW YORK (AP) — Last Thanksgiving Day, Kimberly Mudge Via’s mother, sister and nieces left in the middle of their meals to head for the mall. Now, Via says she’ll never host Thanksgiving dinner for her relatives again. “They barely finished,” says the 28-year-old who lives in Boone, N.C. “They thanked me and left their plates on the counter.” That scene could become more common in homes across the country. Black Friday shopping, the annual rite of passage on the day after Thanksgiving, continues to creep further into the holiday as more stores open their doors a day early. It’s a break with tradition. Black Friday, which typically is the year’s biggest shopping day, for a decade has been considered the official start to the busy holiday buying season. Stores open in the wee hours of the morning with special deals called doorbusters and stay open late into the evening. Meanwhile, Thanksgiving and Christmas remained the only two days a year that stores were closed. Now Thanksgiving is slowly becoming just another shopping day. Over the past few years, major retailers, including Target and Toys R Us, slowly have pushed opening times into Thanksgiving night to one-up each other and compete for holiday dollars. Some initially resisted, saying that they wanted their employees to be able to spend time with their families. This year, more than a

dozen major retailers are opening on Thanksgiving, including a handful like Macy’s, J.C. Penney and Staples that are doing it for the first time. The Gap, which operates its Old Navy, Gap and Banana Republic, is opening half of its stores on Thanksgiving morning. Retailers say they’re just doing what shoppers want. And they know that opening earlier gives them a chance to be the first to grab shoppers’ dollars. That’s an important opportunity for chains, which can make up to 40 percent of their annual revenue during the last two months of the year. But so far, it’s unclear whether opening on Thanksgiving boosts retailers’ top line or simply pushes forward sales from Friday. Last year, it was the latter: Sales on Thanksgiving were $810 million last year, an increase of 55 percent from the previous year as more stores opened on the holiday, according to Chicago research firm ShopperTrak. But business dropped 1.8 percent to $11.2 billion on Black Friday, though it still was the biggest shopping day last year. That day accounted for about 4.3 percent of holiday sales last year. “Customers clearly showed that they wanted to be out shopping much earlier on Thanksgiving,” Amy von Walter, a spokeswoman for Best Buy, which moved up its opening this year to 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving from midnight on Black Friday in 2012. “Our plan this holiday is a direct result of that feedback.”

Kidnappings now commonplace in Lebanon BEIRUT (AP) — For nearly three weeks, kidnappers held Lebanese pharmacist Wissam Khatib, threatening to kill him and his children if his family didn’t pay a ransom of tens of thousands of dollars. During his captivity, Khatib — often shackled and blindfolded — went through depression, terror, pain. But, he says, the trauma was not a surprise. A well-to-do pharmacist in the eastern Lebanese city of Zahleh, the 40-yearold Khatib knew he was a target. He had escaped one kidnapping attempt in August, when he saw masked gunmen approaching his pharmacy and fled before they saw him. He expected them to return, knowing that Lebanon’s weak security forces couldn’t help him. “The state knew, security forces knew, but they didn’t help me at all,” Khatib told The Associated Press. Hostage-taking of wealthy businessmen in Lebanon has risen more

than seven-fold in an unlikely knock-on effect from Syria’s civil war. Security officials say gangs who once made their money smuggling fuel and contraband through the porous Syria-Lebanon border have watched their trade wither because of the violence, so they are turning to kidnapping to make a profit. Lebanon is suffering multiple woes from the war next door. The tiny country, with a population of 4.5 million, has been flooded with an estimated 1 million Syrians fleeing the conflict. Also, tensions between its Sunni and Shiite communities have spiked, sometimes exploding into deadly clashes, mirroring the sectarian hatreds in Syria, where Sunnis largely support the rebellion, and Shiites and the Alawite sect — an offshoot of Shiism — back President Bashar Assad. In the latest violence, a Sunni sheik, Saad El-Deen Ghieh, was shot to death in his car Tuesday by gunmen in the northern city of Tripoli, scene of frequent

Peace talks in peril JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s Housing Ministry said Tuesday it has launched plans for potential construction of thousands of new homes the West Bank, including development of a contentious area outside of Jerusalem, prompting a Palestinian threat to walk out of Mideast peace talks. It was the latest blow to the U.S.-brokered peace talks, which have made no visible progress since they were launched over the summer and have become deadlocked amid disputes over Israeli settlement construction. U.S. officials said they were blindsided

by the Israeli announcement and demanded an explanation. Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said he had called the United States, Russia, the European Union, the United Nations and the Arab League to voice his objections. “I informed them that if Israel implements this decision, then this means the end of the negotiations and the end of the peace process,” Erekat said. The Palestinians claim the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, territories captured by Israel in 1967, for an independent state.

Expressing gratitude never goes out of style DEAR ABBY: With the holidays approaching, a reminder is in order. People: Don’t forget those thank-you notes! I don’t mean an email, but a REAL, honest-to-gosh thank-you note sent through the mail with postage. My mother always told me that a gift is not truly yours until a proper thank you has been sent. She said it “completed the transfer.” I was not allowed to play with the item or use it until that note was written. This is especially true for young people today, who seemingly were not taught this in school or by their parents. Very young children can draw a picture, and the parent can add a line to say it was drawn to express thanks. As the child matures, he/she can use his/ her own words of gratitude. I can’t tell you how many parents comment on the absence of this display of etiquette. Good manners




sent. Some of the writers say they are so hurt and offended that they will stop giving gifts because they were left hanging, wondering if their gift was ever received. The problem may be that many parents no longer insist their children practice this courtesy, so the kids never learn how to do it. Chief among the reasons that thank-you notes aren’t sent is that many people don’t know what to say. They think the note has to be a long, flowery composition when, in fact, short and to the point is more effective. Keeping a notepad handy when opening gifts and immediately taking a moment to jot down the first thought that comes to mind is helpful. (Example: Do you like the color? The style? Is it something you had been looking for and couldn’t find? Is it a special homemade treat? Mmmm.) WRITE IT DOWN.

If patience fails, try duct tape to get rid of warts On the other hand, some warts disappear only to later reappear. Even when warts disappear completely, there still is some virus left in the skin cells. Treating a wart can help lower the risk of recurrence. If you’d prefer not to wait it out, there are two ASK treatment DOCTOR K. options you can try yourself: Dr. Anthony acid,•Salicylic the main Komaroff ingredient in aspirin, is a good first choice. It costs little, has minimal side effects and comes in various over-thecounter preparations, including liquids, gels and

patches. Soak the wart for 10 to 15 minutes, file away the dead warty skin with an emery board or pumice stone, and apply the salicylic acid. Do this once or twice a day for 12 weeks. • Duct tape. This low-risk, low-tech approach may sound suspect, but it’s worth a try. Wear a patch of duct tape over your wart for six days. Remove the patch, soak and file the wart, and leave it uncovered overnight. Reapply the tape in the morning and leave it in place for another six days. Repeat for two months or until the wart disappears. Use silver duct tape, which is stickier and has a particular kind of adhesive. (I’m repeating the advice that my skin specialist colleagues give patients. I wouldn’t have the patience for this.) There are various treatments that doctors can give you in the office: • With freezing

DEAR DOCTOR K: What is the best way to get rid of warts? DEAR READER: Getting rid of warts can be a challenge. Fortunately, the more effective treatments are the simplest. Warts occur when skin cells grow faster than normal because they are infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV). Warts aren’t highly contagious, but they can spread from person to person by direct contact, mainly through breaks in the skin. Warts on one part of the body can also spread to other areas. Warts are generally harmless and often disappear on their own over time. As I write this column, I’m watching a wart on my foot get smaller with no treatment and hoping it will just disappear. So “watchful waiting” is definitely an option for new warts.

From time to time I have seen you mention your booklet on “How to Write Letters.” If it includes a section on thank-you notes, I’m sure it would be helpful DEAR to a lot of in ABBY people the next two months. — ELINOR IN Jeanne Phillips SURPRISE, ARIZ.

(cryotherapy), a clinician swabs or sprays liquid nitrogen onto the wart. The extreme cold burns the skin, causing pain, redness and usually a blister. Getting rid of the wart can take three or four treatments, although it’s sometimes successful with just one. • Various other solutions that “kill” warts can be applied by the doctor. They all have strange names: imiquimod, cantharidin, tretinoin, 5-fluorouracil. Don’t try to pronounce them — that’s one of the things you pay your doctor to do. Warts that don’t respond to standard therapies may need treatment with prescription drugs or with a “zapping and cutting” procedure done under local anesthesia. DR.

Medicaid rare overhaul success GOP poised to WASHINGTON (AP) — The ugly duckling of government health care programs has turned into a rare early success story for President Barack Obama’s technologically challenged health overhaul. Often criticized for byzantine rules and skimpy payments, Medicaid has signed up 444,000 people in 10 states in the six weeks since open enrollment began, according to Avalere Health, a market analysis firm. Twenty-five states are expanding their Medicaid programs, but data for all of them was not available. Meanwhile, private plans offered through troublesome online markets are expected to have enrolled a far smaller number of people. The Obama administration plans to release October enrollment statistics this week, but publicly available figures already provide a contrast between a robust start for Medicaid expansion and lukewarm early signups for new, government-subsidized private plans offered separately under the law. “Medicaid is exceeding expectations in most places,� said Dan Mendelson, Avalere’s president. “It is definitely a bright picture in states that have chosen to expand.� A big reason for the disparity: In 36 states, the new private plans are being offered through a malfunctioning federal website that continues to confound potential customers. And state-run websites have not been uniformly glitch-free. Obama’s health care law melded two approaches to advance its goal of broader insurance coverage. Middleclass people with no access to job-based coverage are

block another court nominee


Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, right, with Sue Birch, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, center, speak with an attendee of a news conference earlier this year where Hickenlooper announced a plan to expand Medicaid

offered subsidized private plans, while low-income people are steered to an expanded version of Medicaid in states accepting it. Starting Jan. 1, the law expands Medicaid eligibility to those with incomes up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level — $15,856 for an individual or $32,499 for a family of four. The Supreme Court gave states the right to opt out of the expansion, which is fully financed by Washington for the first three years, gradually phasing down to a 90 percent federal share. At present, 25 states and the District of Columbia have accepted the Medicaid expansion, which is strongly

supported by state hospital associations, medical groups and advocates for the poor. Its main beneficiaries are expected to be low-income adults with no children living at home. The White House is promoting the expansion. In a visit to Louisiana last week, Obama chided Republican leaders in the states who have turned thumbs down so far. In the audience was GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal, who was not swayed. If the expansion is seen as a success, that could motivate supporters in states like Virginia, which just elected Democrat Terry McAuliffe to replace a GOP governor reluctant to widen the scope of government.

Another key state is Florida, where GOP Gov. Rick Scott abandoned expansion efforts after hitting stiff opposition in the legislature. An estimated 1.3 million Floridians could qualify. Avalere’s statistic of at least 444,000 new Medicaid enrollees comes from 10 of the 25 states that accepted the expansion, so it only represents a partial count. Those numbers may also include some individuals eligible for Medicaid under current rules. In Colorado, Medicaid applications in October were six to nine times what they were the month before, said Sue Birch, who heads the state’s Department of Health Care Policy and Financing.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans seemed ready to block another of President Barack Obama’s picks for one of the nation’s top courts on Tuesday, the latest skirmish in a nominations battle that has intensified partisan tensions in the Senate. Senators planned to vote on Obama’s selection of Georgetown University law professor Cornelia Pillard to fill one of three vacancies on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Majority Democrats were expected to fall short of the 60 votes needed to overcome a GOP procedural blockade against Pillard’s nomination. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., called the vote on Pillard “a political exercise designed to distract the American people from the mess that is Obamacare,� a reference to the 2010 health care law that is getting off to a troubled start. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Republicans were making “cynical arguments in an effort to maintain an ideological edge� among judges on the D.C. circuit. The D.C. circuit’s eight current judges are evenly divided between those appointed by Democratic and Republican presidents. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the GOP was blocking approval

of “yet another talented female jurist.� Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, called that argument “offensive,� adding that Democrats’ “last line of defense is to accuse Republicans of opposing nominees based upon gender or race.� Democrats have been threatening that if Republicans continue derailing Obama’s nominations, they might unilaterally rewrite Senate rules to make it harder for the chamber’s minority party to do that. It is unclear that Democrats have enough votes to do so, with some senior lawmakers warning that the change would boomerang against them should the GOP recapture the Senate majority and the White House. The D.C. circuit court is generally considered second in clout only to the Supreme Court. It rules on White House and federal agency actions, and some of its judges customarily have been elevated to Supreme Court justices. Republicans have accused Obama of trying to tilt the court’s balance in his direction to protect the fate of his administration’s policies. They say the D.C. circuit has a lighter caseload than other districts, and have proposed legislation eliminating one of its vacant judgeships and moving the two others to busier circuits.

Low earnings slow market US may be drawn into Morocco-Algeria dispute NEW YORK (AP) — Disappointing company earnings and falling oil prices pulled stocks back from record highs on Tuesday. NRG Energy slumped after the company lowered its earnings forecast, leading other power companies lower. News Corp. fell after the media company posted an unexpected revenue decline due to weakness at its Australian newspapers. Energy stocks declined after oil dropped to a five-month low. Winners included airlines. The gains were led by JetBlue Airways after the Justice Department said it cleared the way for American Airlines and US Airways to merge, creating the world’s biggest airline. This year’s 24 percent surge in the stock market has slowed

in November. The Standard & Poor’s 500 has edged up 0.6 percent this month after an average monthly increase of 1.7 percent in the previous 10 months. “The market looks tired to us,� said Jim Russell, a regional investment director at US Bank. “A little bit of a pause is actually healthy,� allowing the economy time to catch up to the gains the stock market has made. After closing at an all-time high on three of the previous four trading days, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 32.43 points, or 0.2 percent, to 15,750.67. The S&P 500 index dropped 4.20 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,767.69 points. The Nasdaq composite edged up 0.13 point to 3,919.92. Six of the 10 industry groups in the S&P 500

index fell. Banks and utilities slid the most. NRG Energy was one of the biggest decliners in the S&P 500, slipping 98 cents, or 3.5 percent, to $27.06. News Corp. fell 27 cents, or 1.5 percent, to $17.15. Energy stocks fell broadly. Pioneer Natural Resources, an oil exploration company, dropped $5.63, or 3 percent, to $182.70. Chevron lost $1.20, or 0.9 percent, to $120. Stocks have climbed this year as the Federal Reserve has maintained its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases to keep interest rates low and encourage borrowing and hiring. Now, investors may start focusing more on an improving economy rather than the future of the Fed’s economic stimulus program.

RABAT, Morocco (AP) — A Saharan stand-off may become a U.S. problem. A nasty spat between Algeria and Morocco over the disputed region of Western Sahara has boiled over anew, as Morocco recalled its ambassador, angry protesters tore down an Algerian flag, and a Moroccan magazine called for land grabs. When Morocco’s King Mohammed VI meets with President Barack Obama during his visit to the U.S. next week, the monarch will be looking for greater U.S. support as Morocco feuds with regional rival Algeria. The neighbors are jockeying for position in

a dispute that leaves little space for the cooperation against al-Qaida in North Africa that Washington and its allies want. Last month, Morocco temporarily recalled its ambassador — a major escalation that one former Algerian diplomat called an attempt to gain U.S. backing for its claim to Western Sahara. “It was surprising and disproportionate,� Abdelaziz Rahabi told The Associated Press, arguing the move was designed to dominate the scheduled visit of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry this week that has since been postponed. The U.S. priority in the region, however, has increas-

ingly focused on fighting terrorism, with al-Qaida’s North Africa branch morphing into a Sahara-spanning organization with an elusive presence from the borders of Morocco to Libya. With the two most powerful militaries in the region at each other’s throats, building any kind of regional cooperation — especially to support weaker states like Niger, Mauritania and Chad — has been impossible. Morocco has proposed wide-ranging autonomy for Western Sahara, but the Polisario Front, the pro-independence nationalist movement, insists that local people have the right to a referendum.
