Power rates rising

GOOD MORNING Power restored to Avilla customers AVILLA — Indiana Michigan Power had restored service Tuesday to all Avilla-area customers who lost power during Sunday evening’s strong storms, the utility said. Throughout the I&M service territory, approximately 21,500 customers remained without power Tuesday evening, down from a peak of more than 70,000. I&M said 426 customers in the Fort Wayne area remained without power at 4 p.m. Tuesday. It estimated they would have service by noon today. The utility predicted all Elkhart area customers would have power by 8 p.m. Tuesday, but it would take until Thursday to reconnect all customers in the South Bend and LaPorte areas. Some customers in southwest Michigan were expected to be without power until Friday. The utility said the storm resulted in 37 damaged transmission structures, 217 broken distribution poles, and 60 damaged transformers.

Labor group stages protest in Garrett GARRETT — Representatives from a tri-state carpenters group installed a banner on the sidewalk in front of the Garrett Public Library’s $1.9 million expansion project Tuesday morning to object to a local contractor’s wage scale. Tom Case from the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters said representatives plan to remain at the site until the project is completed to bring awareness that Signature Construction of Auburn, contractor for the project, allegedly does not pay its employees the standard area wages and fringe benefits for the area. Case and a handful of activists held a sign that reads, “Shame on Signature Construction.” Construction on the library began last month and is scheduled to continue through the winter. Workers were not at the construction site Tuesday, but Case said they are not stopping any work and are not directing their protest toward the library or the city. Mike Ley, owner of Signature Construction, said he went to the Garrett site later in the day, but no one from the protest group was there to discuss the labor dispute.

YMCA expansion begins Building to serve ‘next 100 years’ BY KATHRYN BASSETT

AUBURN — Supporters of the YMCA of DeKalb County Tuesday looked back on the organization’s century of service and heard how it will continue to be a community hub for the next 100 years. The large group gathered for the groundbreaking of the YMCA’s North Street expansion. It will add an expanded fitness area, a women’s wellness center, improved child care areas and an indoor child play area, as well as an indoor running track, racquetball, multiple classrooms for additional programming and three multi-functional gyms. A capital campaign has raised

about $7.8 million and is close to meeting the overall goal of $8 million. “The YMCA is not about buildings,” said YMCA past CEO Terry Rayle. “Yes, we use structures … but we are about people and we are about service.” Rayle offered a brief history of the YMCA of DeKalb County, which was incorporated in 1912. Frank and Charles Eckhart gave funds for a facility and construction began the next year. Rayle noted the role of the YMCA was to provide services and affordable housing for young men who were moving to town, particularly to find work in area factories. In 1921, the YMCA board decided to allow women to use the

facility — decades ahead of other YMCAs, which did not begin admitting women until the 1950s, Rayle noted. “This community decided it was important enough,” Rayle said. At that time, Wednesdays were set aside for women to use the facility. “This community has stood by the YMCA and made it as successful as it has been,” Rayle said. In the early 1980s an addition was built at the Main Street location, and in 1997 the North Street branch opened. “Now we are here today, looking at the next step and what is going to happen in the next 100 years as all of you will continue to make this YMCA successful,” Rayle said.

AUBURN – The Auburn City Council on Tuesday night passed the city’s first adjustment to its electric rates in nearly 25 years. By a 6-1 vote, the council approved raising electric rates by an average of 8.9 percent. Officials have said most residential customers will feel a 20 percent increase, while the city’s two largest industrial customers — Metal Technologies Inc. and Guardian Industries, who together use more than one-third of all power — will see a 1.4 percent increase. The next 10 largest users consume about one-fifth of all power and would feel rate increases of 14 percent, the council heard previously. The adjustment figures to bring in an additional $2.8 million in revenue, electric utility superintendent Stuart Tuttle told the council. Tuesday night, discussion turned to the city’s relationship with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. Council President Dick Stahly asked Tuttle how much it cost to perform the city’s first rate study since 1973. Tuttle estimated some $150,000 was spent on the process that began two years ago. Tuttle said that cost would be considerably less and the process quicker without having the IURC check the city’s work. Councilman Mike Walter cast the lone nay vote for the new rates. He said he did so based on principle, because the city used workers from the water and electric departments years ago to help with projects at Rieke Park and Carr SEE RATES, PAGE A6

Marriage, education fights face legislators


Jean Grasmick, daughter of former state Rep. Phyllis Pond, speaks about her mother during Organization Day at the Statehouse Tuesday in Indianapolis. Pond was first elected to the house in 1978 and continued as a legislator until she passed away in September. A Republican from New Haven, Pond represented southern portions of DeKalb County in recent years.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s legislative leaders are holding their cards tight as they prepare for a battle over amending the state constitution to ban gay marriage. House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, said Monday that he expects some sort of conclusion by the end of the General Assembly’s 2014 session. Senate President Pro Tem David Long, R-Fort Wayne, said he still is polling his members before deciding how to handle the issue. Indiana already limits marriage to being between one man and one woman, but supporters of a constitutional amendment say it is needed to prevent a court from overturning state law. Bosma and Long both said Monday the

issue is not a top priority in either chamber, where they oversee large Republican majorities. “We have to deal with the issue with dignity and respect for opposing viewpoints. We can’t call people bigots or sinners or whatever,” Bosma said. “We have to deal with this and work through it, whether we want to or not, together as Hoosiers and bring this 12-year discussion to a conclusion in one direction or another.” He declined, however, to say when the issue might come to a vote. Bosma and Long detailed their 2014 legislative priorities Monday along with House Minority Leader Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City, SEE LEGISLATORS, PAGE A6

Foundation to pay for South Main property BY KATHRYN BASSETT

WATERLOO —The DeKalb Central school board Tuesday approved an agreement that is expected to resolve a lawsuit involving a transfer of property from the school district to the Community Foundation of DeKalb County. In August, Auburn City Councilman Mike Walter filed a complaint for declaratory judgment in DeKalb Superior Court I. Walter’s lawsuit says the school board adopted a resolution June 18 authorizing the “transfer by gift” of four lots on South Main Street in Auburn to the Steininger Center. The site previously was home to the

McIntosh Gymnasium and its parking area. The community foundation announced it would build a new office on the property. The facility would be named the Steininger Center for Community Foundation of DeKalb County. Walter asked the court to enter a judgment declaring any transfer by gift, donation or for any consideration less than the fair market value of the property as null and void. Tuesday, school board attorney Erik Weber shouldered the blame for the litigation, telling the board he misinterpreted the law when he believed the school district could transfer the property to the community foundation.

“After consulting with a number of people, I’ve come to the conclusion that the transfer is not in compliance with the statute,” Weber said. He said he has met with Walter to discuss how the matter can be resolved. “After discussing this with him last week, an agreement has been developed to settle the matter,” Weber said. The agreement calls for obtaining two independent appraisals of the property and taking the average of the two to arrive at a fair market value. “The foundation has agreed to pay so that this can be resolved,” Weber said. “It’s my opinion that it’s a good compromise … It’s a great project. It’s something that

needs to go forward.” The community foundation issued a news release Tuesday stating its intention to purchase the property. “We are grateful for the show of trust that the school corporation holds in the community foundation as a steward of the former McIntosh property,” said foundation board president Marcia Weller. “We are committed to doing what is right for the community and we are excited about what the Steininger Center will offer. The facility will provide tremendous and immediate value, but we have come to recognize that the original path to our ownership of the property is not SEE FOUNDATION, PAGE A6

Lebanon, Tuesday. The blasts in south Beirut’s neighborhood of Janah also caused extensive damage on the nearby buildings and the Iranian mission.

Suicide bombers strike at Lebanon Iranian Embassy BEIRUT (AP) — Suicide bombers struck the Iranian Embassy on Tuesday, killing 23 people, including a diplomat, and wounding more than 140 others in a “message of blood and death” to Tehran and Hezbollah — both supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The double bombing in a Shiite district of Beirut pulled Lebanon further into a conflict that has torn apart the deeply divided country, and came as Assad’s troops, aided by Hezbollah militants, captured a key town near the Lebanese border from rebels. The bombing was one of the deadliest in a series of attacks targeting Hezbollah and Shiite strongholds in Lebanon in recent months. An al-Qaida-linked group said it carried out the attack as payback for Hezbollah’s backing of Assad forces against the mainly Sunni rebels as the Syrian civil war increasingly becomes a confrontation between regional powers. The Syrian army’s border offensive is part of a larger government push that started last month and has seen forces loyal to Assad firmly seizing the momentum in

the war, taking one rebel stronghold after another. The attacks raised fears in Lebanon that Islamic extremists, now on the defensive in Syria, would increasingly hit back in Lebanon. The country is suffering the effects of competing sectarian loyalties. “People fight outside (Lebanon), but send their messages through Lebanon. With bombs,” said a mechanic whose store windows were shattered by the blasts. The midmorning explosions hit the neighborhood of Janah, a Hezbollah stronghold and home to several embassies and upscale apartments, leaving bodies and pools of blood on the glass-strewn street amid burning cars. In the chaotic aftermath, volunteers tried to extinguish bodies still aflame from the blast by covering them with their sweaters and blankets. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the attacks and called on all Lebanese to recognize that “such appalling and indiscriminate acts of violence” target everyone in the country, U.N. acting

Zimmerman’s girlfriend tells of choking incident SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman’s girlfriend said he tried to choke her about a week ago during an altercation that was not initially reported to police, a prosecutor told a judge Tuesday during Zimmerman’s first court appearance on domestic violence-related charges. Samantha Scheibe feared for her life because Zimmerman mentioned suicide and said he “had nothing to lose,” according to Assistant State Attorney Lymary Munoz. After the hearing, Zimmerman’s public defenders said he did not appear to be suicidal and expressed confidence he would be acquitted of any wrongdoing. Hours later, Zimmerman was released from jail after posting $9,000 bond. He was seen walking out of the jail smiling and getting into a car. Judge Frederic Schott ordered him to stay away from Scheibe’s house, wear a monitoring device and refrain from contact with her. He was forbidden from possessing guns or ammunition or travelling outside Florida. Zimmerman has been charged with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison. He also has

been charged with battery and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors. An arraignment was set for Jan. 7. The judge said Zimmerman’s previous brushes with the law were not a factor in the conditions he imposed, but he did cite the new allegation of choking as a reason for the bond amount. Earlier this year, Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in the fatal shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin in a case that drew worldwide attention. Zimmerman, 30, wore gray jail garments and handcuffs during the hearing and spoke only when answering yes or no to the judge. Public defender Jeff Dowdy said Zimmerman’s family has been supporting him financially. “I would think it would be difficult for George Zimmerman to get a job in central Florida,” he said. In an affidavit filed Tuesday, Zimmerman asked for a public defense, saying he has liabilities and debts of at least $2 million and no income. He said he had less than $150 in cash on hand. Dowdy and another public defender, Daniel Megaro, said Zimmerman was not suicidal.

deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the bombings “senseless and despicable,” and said “our hearts go out to the Iranian people after this violent and unjustifiable attack claimed the life of at least one of their diplomats. The dead Iranian was identified as Ibrahim Ansari, a 54-year-old diplomat who took up his post a month ago and was overseeing regional cultural activities, said Iranian Ambassador Ghazanfar Roknabadi, speaking to Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV from inside the embassy compound. Also among the dead was Radwan Fares, a Lebanese national who headed the facility’s security, according to a Lebanese official at the embassy who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give official statements. The first suicide attacker was on a motorcycle with two kilograms (4.4 pounds) of explosives and blew himself up at the embassy’s black main gate, damaging the three-story facility, another Lebanese security official said.

Judge sentences two in hearings AUBURN — Judge Monte Brown sentenced two people for crimes during hearings Monday in DeKalb Superior Court II. • Brytanne Hayes of the 900 block of North Main Street, Auburn, was sentenced to three years of incarceration, all suspended except 180 days, for maintaining a common nuisance, a Class D felony. The sentence may be served

on community corrections if she qualifies. She was placed on probation for 2 1/2 years and must perform 125 hours of community service work. She must pay court costs. As part of a plea agreement, the court dismissed related charges against Hayes of dealing marijuana, a Class C felony, neglect of a dependent, a Class D felony, and possession of

paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor. • Frankie Handshoe of Garrett was sentenced to one year in jail, all suspended except 30 days, for possession of methamphetamine. The offense was charged as a Class D felony, but conviction was entered at the lesser level of a Class A misdemeanor. He received 11 months of probation and must pay court costs.

Former Garrett doctor arrested BY MATT GETTS

CONNERSVILLE — A physician who formerly had an office in DeKalb County was one of three men arrested Thursday in southern Indiana for allegedly forging prescriptions for narcotic painkillers at the Fayette Regional Health System. Dr. David N. Ringel, 54, was booked into the Fayette County Jail on four counts of conspiracy to commit dealing in a controlled substance, a Class B felony, and four counts of conspiracy to commit forgery, a Class C felony. Ringel also faces two Class A felony charges of conspiracy to commit dealing in a controlled substance, according to Fayette County Prosecuting Attorney Ken Faw. The case was investigated by the Indiana Attorney General’s

Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. Ringel opened a family medical practice at 112 N. Ringel Randolph St. in Garrett on June 27, 2005. The phone number for that office has been disconnected. A former patient, who asked not to be identified, said he believed the practice had closed within the last six months to one year. Ringel is a native of Hamilton, Ohio, and was board-certified in family medical practice by Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Also arrested in the case Thursday were: • Dr. Daniel Palmer, 56, on charges including seven Class A felony counts and one Class B felony count of conspiracy to commit

dealing in a narcotic drug; and • Jeff Ferryman, 50, a physician’s assistant, on charges including seven Class A felony counts and one Class B felony count of dealing in a narcotic drug. Another physician’s assistant at the Fayette Regional Health System, David M. Wulff, had been charged earlier with dealing in narcotics, dealing in controlled substances, forgery and acquiring controlled substances by fraud. “Overprescribing of powerful opiate painkillers across our state has contributed in part to the epidemic of prescription drug abuse in Indiana and fueled addiction at the expense of patients’ safety and health,” Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said in a news release about the investigation.

WATERLOO — For the seventh year in a row, Waterloo Grant Township Public Library has been named a “Star Library” in the Library Journal magazine’s annual index of public library service. The library earned a three-star rating in the publication’s November issue. The edition ranks outstanding libraries with three, four or five stars based on circulation, visits per capita, program attendance per capita and computer usage. The library is one of seven in Indiana to be named to the list. The library earned a five-star rating in 2007, a four-star rating in 2008-2009 and a four star rating in 2010-2012. “I’m surprised and happy,” said library director Linda Dunn. Libraries submit annual reports to their state libraries, and Library Journal uses that information to create its index. “Keeping track of all the statistics is a big project,” Dunn said. The library is undergoing a $1.6 million expansion project that will add a teen center, meeting rooms and a new children’s center. The library received a $400,000 Community Development Block Grant in August and hopes to break ground by Dec. 30 — in honor of the library’s 100th anniversary. The library was built in 1913 with $9,000 donated

from the Carnegie Foundation of New York. The library purchased its first computer for the public in 1992, the same year Dunn started at the library. The expansion project has required two years of Dunn’s devoted attention, raising funds, keeping track of grant deadlines and project guidelines. “I don’t want to miss anything and cause any delays,” she said. With Dunn’s efforts focused on the library’s expansion, her staff has provided substantial support. The library has three full-time and six part-time employees. “I’m very proud of my staff,” Dunn said. In the report, Waterloo Grant Township Public Library was ranked among libraries with annual budgets between $200,000$399,000. Rankings were based on data from 2011. In 2011, its patrons checked out an average

of 11 books apiece, made nearly 14 visits, attended three programs and used the library’s computers more than three times. Dunn said the library will continue to participate in the project, because it helps the staff “strive for more.” On Dec. 2, the library’s board will meet to accept bids for its expansion project. “It’s been a long haul,” Dunn said. “We’ve been very patient.”

BUTLER — The DeKalb Eastern Schools board on Monday approved launching a portal that will give students and faculty access to online educational materials away from the school building. The board approved a contract with Washington state-based 3W Education Consulting Group to install the online portal that will be open for students — current and non-traditional — to access educational materials. It also will allow teachers to see what the students are accessing, DeKalb Eastern Superintendent Dr. Jeff Stephens explained. Stephens and district treasurer Phil Carpenter visited the 3W campus recently to learn the system. Stephens told the board 3W will roll out a pilot program of the online portal for one or two students in grades 4-8, hopefully by February. The district’s goal is to have the portal fully released to all students by August, Stephens said.

Gettysburg Address turns 150 GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — In solemnity, thousands gathered at a central Pennsylvania battlefield park Tuesday to honor a speech given 150 years ago that President Abraham Lincoln predicted would not be long remembered. The inspirational and famously short Gettysburg Address was praised for

reinvigorating national ideals of freedom, liberty and justice amid a Civil War that had torn the country into pieces. “President Lincoln sought to heal a nation’s wounds by defining what a nation should be,” said Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, calling Lincoln’s words superb, his faith deep

He then said he supported the going through the commission because city councilmen do not have the experience or time to comprehend complex utility studies. Stahly took exception to that assertion and said the $150,000 spent on the rate study “is sitting on Mike’s lap.” No residents spoke at a public hearing on the rate adjustment. In other business Tuesday night, the council passed

a fiscal plan to annex 16 acres on the city’s northwest side, then took a first vote to annex the land. The area to be annexed includes 18 homes on the west side of the North Indiana Avenue, across from Rieke Park, and along Orchard Drive, which extends west from Indiana Avenue. The land will be served by city water and sewer linse, and a majority of the property owners have signed petitions requesting annexation, the plan says. The annexation comes as an E. coli spike has been discovered on the land, beginning to pollute the

district’s 2013 property tax settlement will be short $181,000 as a result of refunds due to industries within the county, based on appeals to reduce their assessed valuation, according to Carpenter.

The $181,000 will be taken from all of the district’s funds, Carpenter said. • approved an annual resolution for the Indiana Bond Bank’s 2014 Advance Funding Program, which allows the district to receive revenue until tax draws are made in June and December. • received the State Board of Accounts-recommended Conflict of Interest report that lists all district employees who have relatives who work for the school corporation.

Also Monday, the district learned IMPACT Institute director Tim Holcomb will retire June 30, and a search has begun for his replacement. Holcomb has served as director of the program since July 1997. Stephens said the IMPACT board is seeking applicants for the position. He said the hope is to have a replacement identified by the school board’s Dec. 16 meeting and in place by Jan. 1. The person hired would work alongside Holcomb until his retirement to learn the details of the position, Stephens said. The board also: • learned the district will work with DeKalb Central and Garrett-Keyser-Butler schools to develop a county calendar that will mirror DeKalb Eastern’s balanced calendar, new this school year. Stephens said he received requests from both districts for a meeting to establish a calendar that is uniform among the districts.

war” between Democratic Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz and Republican Gov. Mike Pence. He did not say how lawmakers might intervene in the battle, but said he and others have been working behind the scenes to cool down both sides. Ritz has blamed Pence’s creation of a second education agency for an ongoing power struggle, which flared last week when she abruptly ended a State

Board of Education meeting. Pence has called her claims that he’s trying to take over the state Department of Education a misunderstanding. Both issues have the potential to crowd out other items leaders from both sides say they would like to focus on during the 2014 session. All four leaders said they would like to find ways to expand early childhood education across the state.

the proper path. Appropriately, we have offered to purchase the property.” Auburn native Don Steininger and his wife, Kathy, have committed to providing the foundation with a gift to build a permanent home that includes meeting space for local nonprofit groups. The building will house offices for the foundation and two meeting rooms available to local charitable organiza-

tions at no charge. Memorabilia from former local schools will be displayed in an open space. “We want to make 700 South Main the home of the Steininger Center,” said community foundation director Wendy Oberlin. “The property has a deep history of commitment to the community. The Steininger Center will continue that tradition while immediately advancing a legacy of charitable giving

in the community. We simply want to ensure that ownership of the property is exchanged in the proper way so that this value may be fully realized.” Last year the community foundation awarded post-secondary scholarships to local students totaling over $100,000. In addition, the foundation awards about $500,000 annually in grants to local charitable organizations for programs and projects.

YMCA: Ambassador Foundation has purchased Main Street YMCA FROM PAGE A1

YMCA current CEO Bob Krafft said the YMCA will continue to hold onto the vision of its founders, while embracing change that is the future. The YMCA is Christ-centered and will implement Christian principals in all of its programs, Krafft said. The expansion project will allow the YMCA to focus on collaborations with DeKalb Health and Parkview Health hospitals, area schools, organizations and youth leagues. “We want to be about community,” Krafft said. Construction of phase I of the addition will begin immediately and will include the arena portion of the building, which will house three indoor basketball courts, a walking track, large general fitness area and women’s wellness center. It also will include various fitness rooms, child watch, a community room, racquetball court and general

common areas. Phase I should be completed in the fall of 2014 with the goal of holding youth and adult basketball and volleyball leagues next winter. The total cost of phase I is expected to be about $6.5 million. To begin construction on Phase II, which includes an expansion of the pool, the YMCA estimates it will need an additional $1 million. Campaign chairman Matt Fetter thanked the many foundations, businesses, organizations and individuals who have donated and made the project possible and Daryle Doden and the Ambassador Foundation, who have purchased the Main Street facility. Lisa Christen of the YMCA said the Ambassador Foundation has not announced any plans for the building but recognizes its historic significance and plans to keep it.

No. 2 Jayhawks defeat Iona TUESDAY’S GAMES DETROIT....................................92 NEW YORK ..............................86 MIAMI .......................................104 ATLANTA ....................................88 WASHINGTON ...................104 MINNESOTA........................100 HOUSTON.............................109 BOSTON....................................85

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The gentleman dressed in the finely tailored suit, sitting among the teeming throng of Kansas fans inside Allen Fieldhouse, had never seen a real basketball game in person. He knew enough to cheer when Joel Embiid dunked the ball, and the 7-foot freshman did it plenty of times Tuesday night. Embiid finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds in a breakout performance, helping the secondranked Jayhawks to an 86-66 victory over Iona — one made all the sweeter by the center’s father in the stands. “I don’t think I played good because he was there,” Embiid said. “I just felt more confident, and Coach

always gives me his trust, so I just felt more confident.” Embiid grew up playing volleyball in Yaounde, Cameroon, and didn’t start playing basketball until he attended a camp run by the Sacramento Kings’ Luc Mbah a Moute, who hails from the same town. Embiid was 16 years old, but his athleticism made him a natural. He wound up at The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla., to pursue his basketball career, and quickly developed into a five-star talent. Kansas coach Bill Self was on him early, recruiting the blossoming Embiid to the school that produced Wilt Chamberlain. “He’ll look good some days, he

won’t look as good some days,” Self said, “but he’s smart. He gets it. He’s figuring things out all the time. I’m real pleased with his development.” Embiid had plenty of support in this one. Perry Ellis scored 21 points, Andrew Wiggins added 13 and Naadir Tharpe had 10 assists for Kansas (3-0), which overcame a sluggish start after a high-profile triumph over Duke last week. The Gaels (1-2), using a maddening 2-2-1 zone and pouring in 3-pointers, managed to hang within single digits until midway through the second half. That’s when Kansas went on a 19-4 surge fueled by its freshmen to finally put the game away.

“Our kids came out and competed their hearts out and did their best all night,” Iona coach Tim Cluess said. “It gives us a lot of measuring sticks for the rest of the season.” A.J. English scored 21 points for Iona, and David Laury added 13 points and nine rebounds before fouling out. Sean Armand added 14 points, hitting three 3-pointers to move within three of matching the school’s career record of 263. While the Gaels shot the ball well, they had no answer inside for Ellis and Embiid. The 6-foot-8 Ellis scored on a variety of nifty spin moves and soft floaters in the lane, while Embiid used his massive size advantage to go 7 for 7 from the field.

ALBION — On a night where Garrett struggled to make a shot outside of five feet, the Railroaders relied on their pressure defense to gain separation from Central Noble Tuesday night. Garrett forced 26 turnovers, 16 in the second half, and tallied 14 steals as the Railroaders defeated the host Cougars 53-28 in non-conference action in Albion. “Our defense turned it around,” said Garrett coach Bob Lapadot. “(Central Noble) did a good job scrapping. They’re a much improved team and we couldn’t make a shot, mostly because they were so physical we were looking to get hit and weren’t focused. “In the second half with our trap defense, we were able to get some lay-ups. That helped.” Of Garrett’s (3-0) 14 steals, 11 came in the second half when the Railroaders increased their half-court and full-court pressure. The Railroaders’ leading scorer, senior Brandi Dawson, was the driving force with six second-half steals — five in the fourth quarter. On three straight possessions in the final period, Dawson stole the ball and followed with a lay-up to push Garrett’s lead to 45-23 with 5:31 left in the game. “We … tried to work on that in practice, but it’s hard to simulate that,” said CN coach Lynford Yoder. “They’re a really physical team, a really athletic team that caused a lot of problems for us. “We had a lot of turnovers. That killed us, especially against a good team like that.” Dawson led the Railroaders with 24 points on 9 of 16 shooting.

She also added five rebounds, four assists and a game-high seven steals. Outside of Dawson, Garrett struggled to make baskets. The remaining six players to attempt shots Tuesday night were a combined 13 of 46 (28 percent). As a whole, the Railroaders were 1 of 17 from 3-point land. Looking at those numbers alone, it might be a surprise to see Garrett win comfortably by 25 points. “I kept looking at the scoreboard thinking we’ve got to have 50-60 points, and it’s 27-19,” Lapadot said. “And I’m thinking, man oh man. When you can win games different ways, that’s what makes you a good team. We were able to win offensively the first two games, and (Tuesday night) defense turned into offense and that was good to see.” For Garrett, Taylor Smith chipped in nine points and eight rebounds, Emily Somers had six points and eight rebounds, and Rachel Stafford had five points off the bench. Kaitlin Wisel had a balanced night with three points, five rebounds and five assists. Tiffany Simcox led Central Noble (0-2) with 10 points and seven rebounds, Jordan Askren scored six points off the bench, and Courtney Freeman had four rebounds. Garrett shot 30 more field goal attempts than the Cougars, 62-32. “We didn’t shoot the ball as well as we did in the first game,” Yoder said. “My goal for them was not to back down. I saw that through a lot of the game. We had a little spurt there at the end of the first half and SEE GARRETT, PAGE B3

Krumlauf eyes fourth trip to state BY PHIL FRIEND

WATERLOO — There are a handful of DeKalb wrestlers to watch out for this season, but one stands out above all the rest: senior Zach Krumlauf. Krumlauf has been a state qualifier each of the past three seasons and on top of that, he’s only 10 wins away from the school record for career victories. “He’s right there with the best of the best we’ve had at DeKalb,” said DeKalb coach Jason Hunter. Krumlauf, who went 40-3 last year at 132 pounds, has lost his first match at the state finals each of the past two seasons. Motivation like that can easily fuel a wrestler, and Krumlauf’s no exception. This year, he’ll wrestle up a weight class at 138 pounds. “He’s been in our program ever since he was six years old,” Hunter said. “His work ethic is unbelievable. He had some tough competition his freshman year at 103, some quality seniors in the area when he was a freshman, and it’s just been up, up and away since then. He’s definitely hungry for it.” DeKalb also returns a semistate qualifier in junior Logan Williams

Lakers excited about new system BY AARON ORGAN

LAGRANGE – That buzz you hear around the Lakeland High School community is unbridled excitement for a new basketball season. Scott LaPlace’s return to the bench after four seasons away has been welcomed by a group of energized and eager Lakeland boys basketball players, and for good reason. LaPlace, a former Fremont High head coach and Bethel College assistant coach, has been working this preseason to install his fast-paced system, and the players he has to run it have run with it, he said. “They seem to like it,” LaPlace said of his system predicated on pushing the ball up the floor. “They seem to want to do that and they are picking up on it pretty quickly. “It’s going really well. The guys are trying to do everything that is asked of them and they’re working really hard and they seem to be pretty excited about the basketball season. Practices have been fun.” Excitement and will aside, LaPlace is still trying to get a grip on what areas his team could excel in this season, as he’s working to determine if and how his system will jive with

the players. Coaching the players to play fast and controlled rather than hurried has been key, he said. Fortunately, the Lakers team is largely mature. They’re not exactly experienced, however. With nine seniors on the roster, few saw major

minutes last year under former coach Ryan Yoder as many of those players logged time in junior varsity contests. LaPlace said they’ll need to step up to the varsity playing level this year. Lakeland will be led by Chandler Mynhier, Marco Olivares, Dustin

Mynhier, Joseph Trost, Josh Collyer. Back, manager Audrey Stephens, assistant coach Brent Miller, junior varsity coach Don Prough, varsity head coach Scott LaPlace, varsity assistant coach Steve Mettert, and managers Paty Aguilar and Angela Sanchez.

Cunningham and Daemyn Priestley, who each played heavy minutes a season ago. LaPlace said he’s been impressed with their work ethic in practice and said he’ll lean heavily on them for on-the-court leadership. At 6-3, Mynhier is the tallest player on the roster and figures to be the focal

point in the post. Priestley and Eric Herber will share point guard duties. LaPlace said even with a heap of seniors biding for minutes, he’ll look for Josh Collyer, a 6-2 sophomore, and juniors Cole Lozano and Martin Gordon to contribute at the varsity level. They’re the future, he

said. In the present, the Lakers will find out quickly how they stack up. Lakeland opens with Concord Tuesday night – a 19-2 team a season ago – then East Noble four nights later, which is rebuilding. “We’ll find out real fast if we’re at that level or not,” said LaPlace. “Our conference will be very difficult, and our non-conference schedule is just brutal. We never have a game where we can’t bring our A-game. We just don’t have that luxury. But that’s fun. You want to play great teams where you have to play your best every day.” LaPlace said the season will be determined by how effectively his team picks up the system and plays within it. “With me coming in with a different style and a different system, it’s hard to say,” said LaPlace. “They’re busting it and they’re catching on very quickly. They like the things that we’re doing, but to say how competitive we’re going to be, that’s really hard to judge right now.” Don Prough will coach the Lakers’ junior varsity squad, and Steve Mettert will serve as the assistant varsity coach.

Young CN Cougar team looks to jell BY JUSTIN PENLAND

ALBION — This year will mark the first for Central Noble boys basketball in which a senior class has started in middle school under Brett Burrough and will finish his career under the same coach. Connor McCoy will be that person, but also the only player this year who will leave the Cougar program. So what will it be like having one senior after losing four to graduation following a 5-16 season? “We are going to have to grow together as a team, there is no doubt about that. We need to learn to play consistently as a team,” Burrough said. “This is a really good group of kids that have the potential to do something. We don’t have a lot of size, but we do have some. We have some ball handlers and kids that can shoot, too. We need to put the pieces together and then we can compete.” Unity and consistency will be big for the Cougars this season with four juniors, four sophomores and a freshman joining McCoy on the varsity roster. “It is nice to be in a situation where the kids know my expectations and know what I expect on a daily basis

in terms of the intensity of practice and an understanding of my terminology,” Burrough said. “ Many players on the Central Noble roster spent the offseason on the court elsewhere, leading to a quality first week of practice. Burrough said this group has put in more time in the gym than any other through his tenure in Albion. “There has been a good

level of competition (in practice). We have a nice core of kids that really put in a lot of time during the spring, summer and fall,” he said. McCoy averaged 10 points and five rebounds last season as a junior, and is expected to step up in a role vacated by KPC Media Group All-Area honoree Alex Vice (13.9 ppg, 6 rpg, 2.4 assists, 2.2 steals).

coach Scott Rees, head coach Brett Burrough, Jacob Galligher, Zack Robinson, Jeremy Coney, coach Cory Vice and coach Cody Kirkpatrick.

McCoy will be the centerpiece to the Cougar offense, but he may not be the only person who will make a significant impact. “I also see some things being spread around more this year. I think with the ball handling we have, we will have multiple players handling the ball. We might be a little more balanced this year in our attack,” Burrough said.

Purdue football finds progress Boilermakers host Fighting Illini on Senior Day Saturday WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — Purdue has no chance at a Big Ten football championship. The Boilermakers’ hopes of landing in a bowl game are gone. But there are signs of progress for Purdue (1-9, 0-6 Big Ten) and first-year coach Darrell Hazell wants to show fans where the program is headed. The Boilermakers host Illinois (3-7, 0-6) on Saturday, which is Senior Day. “I think we’ve got to come out and play extremely well on Saturday and show the future of the program,” Hazell said. “I think that’s very important at this point in time. There’s a great crop of young guys out there, to be able to track and follow their career here in the next three, four, five, six years, and they’re fun. Some of those guys are fun to watch.” The Boilermakers haven’t won since beating Indiana State in the season opener, but showed signs of improvement in a 45-21 loss at Penn State on Saturday. The Boilers topped 20 points for the first time since scoring 28 in a loss to Northern Illinois

in September. It gave Hazell something to build on this week. He wants to see his team improve on some of the pass plays that allowed the Boilermakers to move the ball against Penn State. They threw for 223 yards, the most since throwing 371 against Northern Illinois. “I think if we can throw some of those bubble swings and some of the nakeds and jailbreaks, those are easy completions,” Hazell said. “It takes a lot of stress off of the offensive line as well as the quarterback as well as the receivers getting open. All those things that you can get easy completions, that takes a lot of stress off, so that’s part of the offense that we need to continue to get better at.” Now is a good time to polish some of those plays and skills. The Boilermakers host a team in the Fighting Illini that hasn’t won a league game this season. Then Purdue will wrap-up the season against rival Indiana, who has had its share of struggles. A win against either won’t erase all the losses. When asked Tuesday what best describes this season, Hazell said:

“A work in progress.” Hazell likely found his quarterback for the next several years in true freshman Danny Etling, who took the starting role from senior Rob Henry. Etling has shown what he can do when he has enough time to work each play. Now it’s a matter of getting everything to click at the same time. “I think it’s everybody just really understanding that their role is so vitally important,” Hazell said. “If you can take care of your role as an individual, then it’s going to help. And offensively you’ve got to be 11 for 11 guys doing the right thing.” Despite the struggles, Hazell has kept his optimism about the direction of the program and still has the same vision as when he took the job earlier this year. “I know it’s going to happen,” he said. “It’s just when it’s going to happen. It’s going to be a great program. I tell my staff that all the time, ‘Just keep working the process. Don’t panic, don’t flinch. And sometimes it’s frustrating for you, but you’ve got to keep working the process.’”

Brock Noe has “matured and become stronger,” according to Burrough, and returns after a strong sophomore season in which he averaged eight points per game. Elijah (E.J.) Andrews started as a freshman and has progressed through the summer. Newcomers Jeremy Coney (junior, 6 feet), Zack Robinson (Jr., 6-5), Joel Cochard (Jr., 6 feet) and

Kaleb Smith (sophomore, 5-8) are expected to make contributions to the varsity team. Robinson will play in the post for the Cougars. “He does have a nice touch and can shoot the ball,” Burrough said of Robinson. “He has worked hard on his footwork in the offseason and has improved.” The Cougars have a hefty pre-holiday break schedule with back-to-back road games to open the season. After traveling to Canterbury (Tuesday) and Angola (Dec. 6), Central Noble hosts Whitko (Dec. 10) and defending conference champion Westview (Dec. 14). During the break, CN will travel to the Caston Shootout for the first time from Jan. 2-4. “Canterbury is a hard place to play. We saw them in the summer, so I don’t think we will have a problem to go and play,” Burrough said. Even with the team’s youth, the goal stands the same as always: To compete on a consistent basis for conference, NECC tournament, and eventually, sectional titles. “Our early season schedule is pretty tough, but it gets us ready for the second half of the season, it’s a good thing,” Burrough said.

BARONS: Four freshmen expected to be part of the varsity squad FROM PAGE B1

Hunter Martin, a senior. He’ll bump up from 170 pounds to 182. However, he’s currently slowed by a shoulder injury. Another varsity returnee is senior Ross Thompson at 220 pounds. “He’s a three-sport athlete and a good leader who’s had some injuries in the past,” Hunter said. Almost everyone else is a newcomer. Junior Derek Wilson, who bounced back-and-forth between junior varsity and varsity last year, will wrestle at 113 pounds. Junior Susie Fozo, a letterwinner last year and the only female on the team, will wrestle at either 106, 113 or 120, filling in where she’s needed. “She’s been in the program for three years now. She’s really earned the respect of all the males in the room,” Hunter said. “She doesn’t back down from anyone.”


The only other letterwinner returning is sophomore Chris Hamlin, slated to competed at 152 pounds. Others expected to wrestle at the varsity level are freshman Trevor Boyce at 106, freshman Kyle Davis at 120, senior Chase Gish at 126 pounds, senior Dominic Fiig at 160 pounds, senior Stephen Lynch at 170 pounds, freshman Dylan Hulbert at 195 pounds and freshman Wyatt Robinson at heavyweight. That’s how it’ll look when the Barons compete in the Northern Indiana Challenge at Munster on Friday. “We’re pretty solid in our lower weights from 106-160. It’s when we get to our heavier weights, we will get thin,” Hunter said. Junior Collin Bice (152 pounds) is also an option in the middle weights. “This is the lowest we’ve ever had

in terms of numbers,” Hunter said. “But they’re a great group of kids. They want to work, we’ve been putting them through some pretty tough stuff and they’ve responded really well.”

SPORTS BRIEFS • Predators beat slumping Red Wings, 2-0 DETROIT (AP) — Rookie Marek Mazanec made 27 saves to earn his first shutout and the Nashville Predators extended the Detroit Red Wings’ skid to seven games with a 2-0 victory on Tuesday night. Shea Weber and Gabriel Bourque scored for Nashville. The Red Wings’ home slide reached eight games (0-6-2). They have gone seven games without a win overall (0-5-2) for the first time since the last seven games of the 2002 regular season, according to STATS. That team went on to hoist the Stanley Cup. This team, though, appears to have a lot of heavy lifting ahead of it to contend for a championship. Detroit’s Jimmy Howard made 23 saves.

No. 4 Kentucky routs UT Arlington LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — James Young scored 26 points, including five 3-pointers, that helped No. 4 Kentucky put away UT Arlington 105-76 on Tuesday night. The Wildcats’ 6-foot-6 swingman made his first three from long range to jump start an 8-of-14 shooting night and provide Kentucky’s third different top scorer in as many games. Young’s hot shooting rubbed off on his talented fellow freshmen teammates. Julius Randle added 22 points with 10 rebounds, Andrew Harrison 15 and Marcus Lee 10 as Kentucky started an all-rookie lineup for the second consecutive game. Willie Cauley-Stein added 14 points and 10 rebounds as Kentucky (4-1) shot 35 of 69 (51 percent) to win its inaugural matchup against UTA (2-3). The Wildcats also earned their second consecutive win since losing to Michigan State a week ago as the top-ranked team. Brandon Edwards’ 24 points led the Mavericks, who were outrebounded 46-34.

No. 3 Louisville rolls to win over Hartford LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Montrezl Harrell had 20 points and nine rebounds to lead No. 3 Louisville to an easy 87-48 win over Hartford in the Hall of Fame Tipoff on Tuesday night. Russ Smith added 14 points as the Cardinals (4-0) extended their winning streak to 20 games dating to last season’s run to the national title. Chris Jones and reserve Chane Behanan added 11 points apiece. Louisville shot 50 percent from the field, outrebounded Hartford 35-29 and forced 25 turnovers. Mark Nwakamma scored 16 points for the Hawks (2-3), and reserve Yasin Kolo finished with 12.

Ill-prepared Hoosiers Most Hoosiers may not be prepared for a widespread emergency, according to a recent survey compiled by the Indiana Department of Homeland Security. The survey of 2,500 households found more than half did not have at least three days’ worth of food and water on hand should a disaster occur. More than half did not have other items recommended for a family preparedness kit, including things such as flashlights, extra batteries, first-aid MATT supplies, extra medications, pet supplies and copies GETTS extra of important documents that are hard to replace. (By definition, one cannot be prepared for an emergency. If you are prepared, it isn’t an emergency, it is merely a contingency you have planned for.) Why aren’t Hoosiers prepared? Uh, we’re sheep. Our masters have us in our pens, and we’ll just graze like the other sheep. If the big, bad wolf comes knocking, we’ll just huddle together and let it pick us off one by one. It’s what sheep do, after all. More specifically, the reasons people gave on the survey for not being prepared included: • I’m too busy; • It’s too expensive to put together extra supplies; • I just don’t think those items are necessary; and • I don’t think there will be an emergency in my area. The last may be the biggest stumbling block. In Indiana, we are just not prone to natural disasters. There are no typhoons. There are no hurricanes. There are no earthquakes (of note). Sure, there may be a swine flu epidemic, or a train containing toxic materials may jump the track, but those things are just too few and far between to get us to the hardware store to buy a flashlight. Tornadoes happen, but thankfully not often enough to be considered a realistic threat. And when they do hit, they are localized damage, not the kind of regional damage you see from widespread disasters that can wipe out entire counties or affect multiple regions. We are pretty much disaster-resistant. Or are we? The following are groups and what constitutes a disaster for them in northeastern Indiana: • Republicans: a Democrat winning a seat in county government. • Democrats: Republicans. • The tea party: a Republican negotiating with a Democrat. • Purdue football fans: kickoff. • IU basketball fans: recruiting players who will stick around more than one or two years. • Notre Dame football fans: Tommy Rees. • Intelligent readers: this column space. • Anti-drug enforcement officers: the do-nothing-about-meth Indiana General Assembly. • Government: an actively participating electorate. While these groups may consider themselves routinely face-to-face with disaster, these are mere annoyances compared to what happened in the Philippines and the super storm that rocked the East Coast last year. The one fly in the ointment for those who feel invincible in this part of the state may be a blizzard. We haven’t had a full-flung blizzard since 1978, but another could happen here. People may be stuck in their homes for a week or more. Look around your own house. What would you eat after day three? Would you have water to drink if the pipes were frozen? Being a prepper myself, I am fully stocked should a true disaster hit. Plenty of food. Plenty of bottled water. Flashlights. Batteries. My dog-eared copy of “Column Writing for Dummies.” Ear plugs for when the kids start whining. I am set. Are you?

It would be much more public and democratic, but also likely more difficult, to eviscerate the Department of Education through the legislative process, as our legislators would likely get more than an earful. I suspect this is why Pence, Fiddien-Green and others are working so hard to make the transfer of authority happen before the beginning of the next legislative session in January. Then the organization and its leadership can look to the hollowed-out department and claim that it no longer serves any useful purpose and that it should be eliminated or consolidated. It is the classic type of business-as-usual Washington politics. Now Pence has called upon the National Association of State Boards of Education to help facilitate a discussion between the two sides that disagree. Pence has fooled no one but himself into believing the conflict is contained within the SBOA when, in fact, he is personally responsible for the dysfunction he’s created at the expense of K-12 kids, parents, educators and let’s not forget the taxpayers who fund all this. Ms. Ritz should ONLY agree to participate in such a conflict resolution session if Mr. Pence agrees to participate himself. Patrick Wiltshire LaGrange

New Chinese political party being cautious The disgraced Chinese politician, who was sentenced to life last month on charges of corruption and abuse of power, is now chairman of a new political party. His supporters say they have formed the Zhi Xian Party (Supremacy of the constitution) to act as a pressure valve within the system and help fight for the rights of citizens. Wang Zheng, a university professor who founded the

What Others Say • party, is treading a cautious path, saying it is not meant to undermine the authority of the one-party system in the country, but to act as an interest group for upholding the constitution. The doctrine and intentions of the new-founded group, nonetheless, are debatable. The fact that Bo has been named its chairman even though he fell from grace with the ruling Communist Party of China

(CPC) making an exemplary case of him is certain to be a thorn in the party’s flesh just as its third plenum session has finalized the agenda for the next decade and decided to move on from the scandals and drama that erupted during the trials of Bo and his wife, former business woman Gu Kailai? Despite Wang’s claim that the new organization is meant to defend the constitution, it could be an oblique retaliatory tactic to caution the CPC against penalizing Bo further. While

Gu, who has been convicted of murdering her business associate, Briton Neil Heywood, was pressured during her trial to give evidence that incriminated Bo, he however has so far not made any stunning revelation to incriminate senior party leaders and utterly disgrace the CPC. However, the new party could be a gentle reminder that the skeletons in Bo’s cupboard could start rattling if he is leant on too heavily. The Khaleej Times Dubai

His latest patent-pending invention, Clear-Cast, is a sleek micro antenna device engineered to pull in the Free TV signals through advanced technology with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills. “Clear-Cast is being released to the general public because we just don’t think people should keep paying for TV when they can get it for free,” said Conrad Miller, Manager of Operations at CompTek. “There’s never a monthly bill to pay and all the channels you get with Clear-Cast are absolutely free. So you see, ClearCast is not like cable or satellite. It was engineered to access solely the over-theair signals that include all the top rated national and regional networks, like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW and about 90% of the most watched TV shows like America’s Got Talent, NCIS, 60 Minutes, American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, The Bachelorette, Person of Interest, CSI, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Sunday Night Football plus news, weather and more all for free with no monthly bills,” Miller said. “That’s why Clear-Cast is such a great alternative for everyone who is sick and tired of paying expensive cable and satellite bills every month,” he said. “People who get Clear-Cast will say it feels like getting an extra paycheck every month.

That’s because you get virtually all pure uncompressed signals direct from the broadcasters for free.

Wife wants hubby to stop doing drugs DEAR ABBY: My husband and I want to start a family, but until now our circumstances have not made this possible. After a big move and starting a new business, we have decided it’s about time. My problem is my husband uses drugs to relieve stress. I don’t feel he abuses them; it just takes the edge off after a hard day’s work like a glass of wine does for me sometimes. I would like him to stop taking the drugs while we are trying to conceive in case it could affect the baby. He’s a hard worker, and I wonder if by asking him to do this I am being selfish. Please give me some advice. — READY FOR MOTHERHOOD IN MISSISSIPPI DEAR READY FOR MOTHERHOOD: You are NOT being selfish, you are being prudent. According to Dr. June Reinisch, director




DEAR ABBY: One of my husband’s relatives is filing for bankruptcy for the

third time. His wife recently started to receive disability. I believe they are abusing the system. I know she was not truthful on her disability application.

(There are several brand names, but you can find dextrin in the “ingredients” list on the bottle.) To avoid

bloating and gas, add fiber to your diet gradually over several days. Dr. Wolf also recommends the following during flare-ups: Mix a tablespoon of mineral oil with applesauce or yogurt and eat it at breakfast or lunch. This allows stool to slide by more easily. • Strain less. Don’t sit or strain on the toilet for long periods of time. This can cause more hemorrhoids and worsen symptoms.

Doing so changes the position of the rectum, making stools easier to pass. • Consider off-the-shelf remedies. Many over-thecounter products, such as witch hazel-infused pads and soothing creams, are effective.

DEAR DOCTOR K: What are some self-help strategies to treat hemorrhoids? DEAR READER: Hemorrhoids are a common but painful and uncomfortable problem. Fortunately, simple measures can ease most hemorrhoid discomfort and help them heal. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins. Veins carry blood back to the heart. Hemorrhoids can develop in the anus and the rectum, just inside the anus. Many people have both. These swollen blood vessels can bleed. When they get inflamed, they can make bowel movements intensely painful. I spoke with my longtime colleague Dr. Jacqueline Wolf, a gastroenterologist and associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. She offered this advice to care for hemorrhoids: • Step up the fiber. Start by adding fiber to your diet. Fiber makes stools softer and

This is because sperm are produced about three months before they are released.”

Your doctor can also prescribe stronger preparations if needed. • Don’t forget sitz baths. Simply soaking the inflamed area in warm water can help reduce inflammation and discomfort. The easiest way to do this is to sit in a bathtub filled with enough water to soak your behind. Some people alternate hot and cold water baths; some add vinegar, salt or baking soda to the water. I’m not sure any of this adds value. If, despite these measures, symptoms worsen or don’t improve, you may need to talk to your doctor about various medical procedures. Some can be done in the office; some involve minor surgery. But the self-help strategies outlined above give relief to most people with hemorrhoids. DR.

Briefs • Florida representative faces cocaine charge WASHINGTON — Republican Rep. Trey Radel is expected to make an appearance in D.C. superior court today on a charge of misdemeanor cocaine possession after an Oct. 29 arrest, according to court documents. Radel, 37, is serving his first term in Congress after being elected last November. He faces a maximum 180-day prison term and/or $1,000 fine. “I’m profoundly sorry to let down my family, particularly my wife and son, and the people of Southwest Florida,” Radel said in a statement released by his office. “I struggle with the disease of alcoholism, and this led to an extremely irresponsible choice. As the father of a young son and a husband to a loving wife, I need to get help so I can be a better man for both of them. “However, this unfortunate event does have a positive side. It offers me an opportunity to seek treatment and counseling. I know I have a problem and will do whatever is necessary to overcome it, hopefully setting an example for others struggling with this disease.” Radel formerly worked as a journalist and TV news anchor. “Members of Congress should be held to the highest standards, and the alleged crime will be handled by the courts,” a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement. “Beyond that, this is between Rep. Radel, his family, and his constituents.”

Virginia state senator suffers stab wounds MILLBORO, Va. — Virginia State Sen. Creigh Deeds was hospitalized in fair condition Tuesday with stab wounds to his head and chest after a fight with his son, police said. His son was dead, having apparently taken his own life after the altercation. The 2009 Democratic nominee for governor was found walking along a road near his home by a cousin. State troopers then found the son, Austin “Gus” Deeds, with a gunshot wound at his father’s home. They were unable to save him. No one else was home at the time of the altercation, and no other suspects are being sought, according to police. Deeds’ cousin and took Creigh Deeds to a nearby farm and called 911. Creigh Deeds was airlifted to the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville.


Serial killer gets stay of execution attorney general’s office were not returned. If a federal appeals court or the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Laughrey’s ruling, the execution could go forward. Franklin’s attorney, Jennifer Herndon, said the execution warrant allows it to be carried out anytime Wednesday. Herndon said Franklin, who has been diagnosed as mentally ill, didn’t seem to fully understand the stay. “He was happy,” she said. “I’m not really convinced that he totally understands that he was going to die.” Franklin, 63, was convicted of seven other murders, but the Missouri case was the only one resulting in a death sentence. Franklin also has admitted to shooting and wounding civil rights leader Vernon Jordan and Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt, who has been paralyzed from the waist down since the attack in 1978. Like other states, Missouri long had used a three-drug execution method. Drugmakers stopped selling those drugs to prisons and corrections departments, so in April 2012 Missouri announced a new one-drug execution protocol using propofol. The state planned to use

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A federal judge in Missouri on Tuesday granted a stay of execution to white supremacist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin just hours before his scheduled death, citing concerns over the state’s new execution method. U.S. District Court Judge Nanette Laughrey ruled that a lawsuit filed by Franklin and 20 other death row inmates challenging Missouri’s execution protocol must be resolved before he is put to death. The 14-page ruling criticizes the timing of the state’s changes to how it carries out capital punishment, specifically its plan to use for the first time a single drug, pentobarbital. It also takes issue with a plan to acquire the drug from a compounding pharmacy. Laughrey wrote that the Missouri Department of Corrections “has not provided any information about the certification, inspection history, infraction history, or other aspects of the compounding pharmacy or of the person compounding the drug.” She noted that the execution protocol, which has changed repeatedly, “has been a frustratingly moving target.” It wasn’t immediately clear whether the state would appeal the ruling. Messages left with the state

Obama, Iran pressing ahead with nuclear negotiations WASHINGTON (AP) — On the eve of new talks, President Barack Obama is plunging ahead in search of a nuclear agreement with Iran despite outright opposition from American allies in the Middle East and deep skepticism, if not open hostility, from Congress. Iran is pressing ahead in its own way, trying to make a deal more likely to ease

painful economic sanctions without losing its own hardliners at home. Obama’s willingness to embrace a pact that falls short of U.N. Security Council demands for Iran to halt uranium enrichment has pushed his administration’s already contentious relationship with Israel to the brink, strained ties with Gulf Arab states and

exacerbated tensions with lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle in Washington. Although everyone claims to have to same goal — preventing Iran from developing atomic weapons — the rancorous, public disagreement over how to achieve it has driven a wedge between the administration and those who the

administration insists will benefit most from a deal. Opponents say Iran is getting too much in the way of sanctions relief for too little in the way of concessions. And, they argue, Iran just can’t be trusted. Obama and his national security team counter that the risk is worth taking. The alternative, they say, is a path to war that no one wants.

There was a fresh sign of efforts to make headway as negotiators from Iran, the five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany prepared for Wednesday’s new round of talks in Geneva.
