GOOD MORNING Ambassador buying Main Street YMCA AUBURN — Ambassador Enterprises said this week it will purchase the nearly 100-year-old Main Street YMCA building in Auburn. The YMCA of DeKalb County is expanding its North Street building in Auburn and will move all operations to North Street when the project is finished, which is expected in 2014. A groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion took place Tuesday. Ambassador Enterprises will use the Main Street YMCA building “in a manner consistent with its original mission of building a stronger community by helping citizens develop in Christ-like character and conduct,� Ambassador CEO Daryle Doden of Auburn said Tuesday. Ambassador Enterprises said the Main Street YMCA building was envisioned and funded by Auburn businessmen-philanthropists Charles Eckhart and his son, Frank. It opened in 1914. “The founders and those who followed in their footsteps understood that an individual person could only be healthy socially and physically if they were first healthy in spirit and in mind. They believed that a strong spirit and a trained mind combined with a disciplined body would result in responsible citizens who would have a positive impact on the community,� the release said. “Plans are in the development stage, and further information will be forthcoming as available,� Doden said. Established in 2008 and based in Fort Wayne, Ambassador Enterprises describes itself as “a for-profit, philanthropic, equity firm investing in leaders and the organizations they lead.� Ambassador says its clients include businesses, individuals and nonprofits.

Police: Woman tried to poison mate BY MIKE MARTURELLO

ANGOLA — An Ashley woman who allegedly tried to poison her husband is facing a charge of attempted aggravated battery, a Class B felony. Renee Marie Mansfield, 25, allegedly substituted rat poison for her husband’s prescription seizure medicine. The incident was brought to the attention of Ashley Police and the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday.

Court records said Mansfield’s husband notified Ashley Police when he noticed a white substance in Mansfield’s purse. It turned out to be the drug she had been removing from her husband’s medicine, court records said. Mansfield is facing up to 20 years in prison if found guilty. She is being held in Steuben County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail. “I just snapped. I didn’t want to hurt him,� Mansfield told investigators Tuesday, court records said.

Mansfield and her husband reportedly had been arguing. During questioning by police, Mansfield allegedly said she made the substitution in the pills so her husband would sleep in and have Mansfield to stay home from work, which would allow them time to talk about their differences.

Initially, Mansfield told police she was substituting a caffeine substance for the prescription medicine. Upon comparing the particular caffeine with the prescription medicine, they learned that Mansfield had not done what she had told police, court records said. Investigators asked Mansfield’s husband if there was any rat poison in the house, and he produced a box. The substance in SEE POISON, PAGE A8

Legion’s top leader visits BY SUE CARPENTER

GARRETT — The national leader of American Legion stopped in Garrett Tuesday during a three-day trip throughout Indiana. National Commander Dan Dellinger was escorted to Garrett Post 178 by some 30 American Legion Riders and greeted by dozens of area post commanders and district dignitaries under an avenue of American flags.

He recognized Robert “Bob� Newman of Garrett, one of the national vice commanders. “It’s been a real pleasure to serve with him this year,� Dellinger said. Dellinger said he likes to visit the various Legion posts to thank them for what they do for the community and for veterans. His motto for this year stems

WASHINGTON (AP) — After they get the website fixed, then what? Keeping your doctors and hospitals may be the next vexing challenge for Americans in the new health plans created by President Barack Obama’s law. Obama promised people could keep their doctors. But in many states the new plans appear to offer a narrow choice of hospitals and doctors. Overall, it’s shaping up as less choice than what people get through Medicare or employer-based coverage. Also, it can get complicated tracking down which medical providers are in what plans. “The next shoe is going to drop sometime after Jan. 1, when people actually start using their plans,� said health economist Gail Wilensky, who ran Medicare for President George H.W. Bush. “Whether or not they can keep their doctor is going to depend on whether their doctor was chosen — or wanted to be — part of a plan on the (insurance) exchange.� Narrow networks are part of the economic trade-off for keeping premiums under control in Obama’s health insurance markets, the new gateway to coverage for people who don’t have job-based plans. Technical problems with the website have dampened initial signups, but 7 million people are expected to participate in the insurance exchanges next year. Exchange plans are required to take all applicants, cover broad benefits and provide robust financial protection against catastrophic illness. In return for that, something else has to give. The result: limited choices and significant out-of-pocket costs through deductibles and copayments.

the opportunity to give back and to provide a “step up� for students. “We believe it’s incumbent on us and others to give back to our community, our faith and our kids,� James said. The school also accepted a donation of $10,867 from Steel Dynamics Inc. Flat Roll Division. The money will cover the purchase of the Baron Wall of Honor, which will be placed outside the gymnasium.

Funding delay leads to losses for NE Center



Wind blamed for rollover Semi driver Tony Braden, 40, of Avilla stands near his semi rig that overturned at the east edge of Auburn Wednesday afternoon. DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Long said Braden was driving westbound on S.R. 8 when the trailer tipped at approximately 3:59 p.m. as Braden attempted to turn south onto

C.R. 35. Braden was not injured. Long said there were no signs of excessive speed, and that likely a gust of wind hit the trailer, causing it to overturn. Braden, who was hauling for NX Enterprises in Auburn, said he has been driving trucks for 11 years and this is the first time his trailer has overturned.

DeKalb Central receives award for energy savings WATERLOO — The DeKalb Central school district’s 10-year energy conservation effort has earned national recognition. The district received the Energy Lighthouse Award from Cenergistic during Tuesday’s school board meeting. The district has achieved nearly $6.9 million in cost savings in 111 months since partnering with energy conservation company Cenergistic. “Reaching this savings mark is a significant milestone. DeKalb County Central United School District has achieved success by consistently implementing the organizational behavior-based approach to energy conservation and maintaining productive efforts at all levels of the organization. The superintendent and board, along with other administration, faculty and staff members are to

be commended for being successful change agents and clearly fulfilling their commitment to being good stewards of the taxpayers’ money and the environment,” said William S. Spears, chairman and founder of Cenergistic. “I am extremely pleased to present DeKalb County Central United School District with our Energy Lighthouse Award. This signifies them as members of a very committed group of organizations across the country working hard to achieve energy savings so the dollars saved can be redirected to educational needs,” Spears said. “In a time of limited educational resources, our very comprehensive approach to energy savings has been accomplished through the dedicated efforts of every single staff member. Our staff is to be commended for their continued emphasis on

achieving cost avoidance through energy savings,” said school district superintendent Sherry Grate. School district energy specialist Michael Ellinger tracks energy consumption — including electricity, water, sewer, natural gas and fuel oil — using energy-accounting software. He compares current energy use to a baseline period and calculates the amount of energy that would have been used if conservation and management practices had not been implemented. By tracking consumption and analyzing energy use, he can identify and correct areas that need immediate attention. For the past five years, Cenergistic has earned national recognition from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, including the Energy Star Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

KENDALLVILLE — The Northeastern Center is losing approximately $60,000 in revenue per month due to a federal agency’s delay in renewing support for a pilot state program. The program permits increases in hospital inpatient and outpatient reimbursement. John Cox, a member of the center’s board of directors from DeKalb County and chairman of the board’s financebuilding-audit committee, reported the revenue loss at Tuesday’s noon board meeting. The center has a year-todate operating loss of $159,935 for fiscal year 2013-2014 that began July 1, Cox said. The center is showing substantial losses largely due to the shutdown in facility payments through the Hospital Assessment Fee program. While it was renewed by the state legislature last spring, the two-year program terminated June 30 pending approval by the Center for Medicare/ Medicaid Services of a new four-year extension. CMS is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and works in partnership with state governments. The center showed operating losses of $63,514 in July, $56,524 in August and $42,948 in September, with a surplus of $6,038 in October. While some of the losses can be attributed to inpatient revenue from the center’s hospital in Auburn

not meeting expectations, a majority is due to the federal renewal delay, Cox said. “If you consider $60,000 more in revenue each month since July 1, we would have an $80,000 surplus,” he told the board. Jerry Hollister, the center’s chief operating officer, expressed confidence CMS would renew support for the HAF program, but he couldn’t say when it would occur, adding “CMS appears to have procedural questions.” Fortunately, the center has enough cash on hand to cover the decrease in revenue, Cox said. The state legislature passed a law in 2011 creating the two-year HAF program. In the center’s case, the program permits increases in inpatient reimbursements for the center’s hospital that approximate Medicare upper payment limits. The Northeastern Center is one of 11 regional mental health centers with inpatient hospitals. About 60 percent of center revenue comes from service fees, according to the center’s 2013 annual report. State funds account for about 24 percent, and funds from Noble, LaGrange, Steuben and DeKalb counties account for about 8 percent. The other 8 percent of total revenue comes from miscellaneous sources. The board adopted last month the center’s 2014 fiscal year operating budget of $12.6 million with offsetting revenues of the same amount.

Iran’s supreme leader says ‘red lines’ on nukes GENEVA (AP) — A new round of Iran nuclear talks began in fits and starts Wednesday, with the two sides ending a first session just minutes after it began amid warnings from Iran’s supreme leader of “red lines” beyond which his country will not compromise. A senior U.S. official said the brief general meeting was only a formality and that bilateral meetings would continue through the evening to work on a deal that would start a rollback of Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for limited sanctions relief. Both sides have said a first-step agreement is possible over the next few days of meetings in Geneva. But there was also tough talk, reflecting tensions from nearly a decade of negotiations that have started to make headway only recently. There are other pressures, too. President Barack Obama faces opposition to a deal from Israel, Saudi Arabia and critics in the U.S. Congress, who say a first-step deal as envisioned would give Iran too much sanctions relief for too few concessions. They argue that Iran can’t be trusted. Obama and his national security team counter that the risk is worth taking because the alternative is war no one wants. While voicing support for the talks, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, insisted there are limits to the concessions Tehran will make. He blasted Israel as being “the rabid dog” of the region — comments rejected by French President Francois

Hollande as “unacceptable.” French spokeswoman Najat Vallaud-Belkacem told reporters in Paris that such statements complicate the talks ahead, but France still hopes for a deal and its position has not changed at the talks. Benjamin Netanyahu, in remarks after the meeting in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin, said “we believe it is possible to reach a better agreement, but it requires us to be consistent and persistent.” At the previous round earlier this month, France said it wanted tough conditions in any preliminary deal with Iran. Negotiations then ended with both sides speaking of progress but continued differences on a final agreement. Khamenei gave no further details in a speech to a paramilitary group aimed at both placating hardliners and showing his backing for Iranian officials preparing to meet with international negotiators. But his mention of Iran’s “nuclear rights” was widely interpreted as a reference to uranium enrichment. Western diplomats hope to reach an accord that would halt Iran’s nuclear efforts while negotiators pursue a more comprehensive agreement that would ensure Tehran’s program is solely for civilian purposes. Iran would get some sanctions relief under such a first-step deal, without any easing of the most harsh measures — those crippling its ability to sell oil, its main revenue maker.

Dear Virginia, I know that you are excited about the Christmas season. But who would have ever thought that stores would be filled with Christmas decorations even before Halloween! Even the television and newspapers have put out the bait to lure the innocent buyer into their net of buying more than they can afford. Of course, people are enticed into thinking that with their “plastic” and “lay away” they can purchase anything that seems pleasant to the eyes, especially if it is a “good deal.” Well, enough of that reality. Let me tell you just a little about Thanksgiving. In 1789, our first President, George Washington, declared that Thursday, Nov. 26, be a day of “thanksgiving and prayer.” That’s right, Virginia, a day of PRAYER! Even though it was not declared a national holiday, it was a time for people to express thanks to God for His many blessings. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln made a proclamation that the last Thursday in November would be declared a national holiday. It would be a day of “thanksgiving and praise.” Yes, a day of PRAISE! In 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt was pressured by stores and commercial enterprises to move Thanksgiving up so it would give shoppers more time to buy their merchandise. So FDR declared that Thanksgiving would be the next to last Thursday of November. Finally, in 1941, the Congress of the United States declared that the fourth Thursday of November would be the official day of Thanksgiving. I know I am boring you with this history lesson, but it is important to realize that there was a time when this great country paused to give thanks to God for His many blessings and to praise Him for His faithfulness. I am sorry to say, Virginia, that the true meaning of Thanksgiving has faded away. This once proclaimed day of prayer and praise has become a fading memory of yesteryear. Stores that once were closed have crept their hours of operation into that special day. Family gatherings around the dinner table, to consume the bounty of abundance and express thankfulness for blessings, have faded into a gluttonous buffet followed by a reclining posture in front of a TV set to watch grown men run down the field in tights carrying a bag of zipped up air. I remember when we used to go around the table and each one would express something for which they were thankful. There was a time of Bible reading, and then prayers of praise and gratitude were offered. If there was a piano, everyone would gather around and sing songs like, “Count Your Blessings,” “We Gather Together to Ask the Lord’s Blessing” and “Come, Ye Thankful People, Come.” The fourth Thursday of November has now become a day of preparation for the biggest shopping day of the year. Advertisements are sorted through and a “game plan” of store invasions is planned out. The green flag is then dropped and the stores are overrun with aggressive people who give no thought to others. Virginia, there was a wonderful day that was set aside to reflect upon God’s goodness. But, you know something? I don’t think it is too late to reinstate the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Why not start with your family? Ask your parents if they remember when there was a holiday for giving thanks. Ask them if your family could experience a real Thanks-Giving Day this year!

Obamacare is a gift to the GOP In spite of everything — the GOP’s internal scrimmages, the government shutdown, the party’s transparent attempts to derail Obamacare — Republicans keep getting second chances. The question is, can they handle prosperity? Do they even know what to do with it? With the myriad problems besieging Obamacare, from the non-rollout to the minuscule number of enrollees in the health insurance exchanges, this is no time for gloating. Rather, it is time for Republicans to get very, very busy with their own ideas for across-theboard reforms. The party of “no” must become the party of “we can, too!” This doesn’t mean sacrificing core principles, though some could use a little shelf time. It does mean picking battles Republicans can win and avoiding skirmishes that further alienate centrists and minorities. Forget building a larger tent, which increasingly looks like a pup for two white guys and a flashlight. Ditch the tent and build a coliseum. Install Doric columns, if you like, and grab an obelisk on your way to redemption. At no extra cost, here’s an inscription for the keystone: Waste not, want less. Waste not this moment; want less than perfection and aim for the possible. This was always House Speaker John Boehner’s battle plan, but he finally concluded that leading his conference where it wanted to go was preferable to inciting a civil war. In a recent interview, Boehner told me he thinks at least

some of the better-death-than-compromise caucus had come around to understanding that attaching Obamacare to the continuing resolution, resulting in the government shutdown, was the wrong tactic. Even so, “at least some” may not be enough. And who knows what Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has up his sleeve as new deadlines for budget KATHLEEN loom and debt-ceiling early PARKER negotiations next year? In the meantime, House and Senate Republicans have a small window, while Obamacare is hugging the shoals, to show why their ideas are best. Americans frustrated with Congress and disappointed by the president are primed for someone to pick up the bullhorn and say, “We hear you.” It’s too bad “compassionate conservatism” has become tarnished because compassion is what is needed in today’s GOP playbook: Compassion for the hungry whose food stamps House Republicans excised from the farm bill; compassion for 11 million immigrants who are prisoners in illegal limbo; compassion for gays, lesbians and others seeking protection against workplace discrimination. These are not such difficult

choices in the scheme of things. How to guarantee that Iran can’t weaponize its nuclear capability? That’s tough. Not so tough: Helping the poor feed their families, finding a path for citizenship along with other immigration reforms, extending equal protections to individuals whose sexual orientation should not be a firing offense. The Senate also has passed a comprehensive immigration bill with the help of 14 Republicans that contains a relatively strenuous path to citizenship that includes paying back taxes and fines, and getting in line behind others seeking citizenship. Hardly a giveaway. Even so, some Republicans aren’t on board with the path to citizenship. Although Boehner told me he hopes to get an immigration bill to the House floor next year, others say 2014’s midterm elections make this unlikely. Phooey. What’s really not likely to happen is a Republican White House — ever — without Latino voters. There’s only so much Republicans can accomplish when they control only half of one-third of government. Consider that the biggest states with the largest concentrations of Hispanics — Florida, California, Texas and New York — also convey 151 of the 270 electoral votes needed to be elected president. Appealing to Latinos doesn’t mean Republicans have to pander or bow to President Obama’s wishes. It means doing the right thing. Even though a slim majority

The party of “no” must become the party of “we can, too!” This doesn’t mean sacrificing core principles.

• of Americans (53 percent) think most immigrants here illegally should be deported, according to a Reuters/Ipsos online survey last February, a more recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that 65 percent favor a path to citizenship if it requires essentially what the Senate bill proposes. The draconian option of deportation would be an unlovely sight. Not only would families be torn asunder, but America’s crops would wither on the vine, as they did in Alabama after that state’s crackdown prompted a sudden, mass exodus. Yet again, unyielding principle prevailed over common sense and survival. Time is of the essence if Republicans hope to refresh their image in the public square. Picking battles wisely, acting compassionately, creating rather than negating is the only way forward. Jar the hardwoods, campers, there’s daylight in the swamp.

Prediction: a great year for ice, ice fishermen It may seem a bit premature, but with temperatures dipping into the teens in northeast Indiana this weekend, some ice fishing predictions are in order. For the past two winters, Indiana and most of the Midwest have suffered from historic droughts and unseasonOUTDOORS ably warm WITH DON winters. In fact, last year was Don Mulligan the first in my lifetime when I did not ice fish in the state of Indiana. And it wasn’t because I didn’t try. Every time ponds and lakes started the ice-making process and made a couple inches of ice, it either got warm or rained. By February, I finally gave up and put my gear back on the shelf. I believe things will be different this year, and I am not alone. In a much more scientifically based prediction than mine, the Farmers Almanac has good news for Midwesterners who want their winter back. From the Almanac’s sometimes correct weather prediction headquarters: ”For 2013–2014, we are forecasting a winter that will experience below average temperatures for about two-thirds of the nation. A large area of below-normal temperatures will predominate from roughly east of the Continental Divide to the Appalachians, north and east through New England. Coldest temperatures will be over the Northern Plains on east into the Great Lakes.” The bad news for folks who trust the Farmer’s Almanac or me is that we both also predict above average amounts of precipitation for this winter. Unlike the past few winters when it was often 70 degrees in January and it rained, this year’s precipitation will drop in the form of snow. For ice fishermen, a little snow is good but a lot of snow is bad. Fish spook easily on clear, clean ice. A small amount of snow helps because it hides movement on the ice by anglers, pets and birds. It also darkens the water, making fish close in on baits without seeing them. Too much snow, on the

Crowl traps rare raccoon BY AMY OBERLIN

HAMILTON — David Crowl of rural Hamilton had a rare find in one of his traps last weekend. “I’ve been fur trapping for 40 years and I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Crowl. He found the light-colored animal in a raccoon snare. “I thought at first I had caught a small dog,” Crowl said. The animal, which has rather unusual features for a raccoon, may not be a true albino, because Crowl said it did not have red eyes. Indiana Department of Natural Resources district biologist Jason Wade and several other DNR employees reviewed the photo of the animal and all agreed it was a raccoon. Wade said it may be in a “weird color phase.” Crowl said it is definitely not the typical raccoon. “It’s very nice fur,” he said. He plans to have it

ice-making process, even when the air is bitter cold. Ice always thickens the quickest when directly exposed to cold air temperatures. While many of the lakes I annually fish in Minnesota are safe for ice fishermen by Thanksgiving, Hoosier lakes won’t be ready that soon. Safe, fishable ice before Christmas in Indiana is a rare thing over the past decade, but I believe is possible this year. Bear in mind not all water will have safe ice that soon, even if we

other hand, weakens ice and insulates it. I have fished places with 3 feet of ice but also with 3 feet of snow on top of it. That much ice can support a semi truck but will sink under the weight of that much snow, especially when it is wet. When anglers cut a hole and water comes rushing out, it is typically because the ice is sinking under too much weight, usually from standing or melted snow Deep snow also makes it difficult to get around on the ice and hinders the

have lower than average temperatures. Big lakes that are deep, have current or are wind swept take longer to freeze. Some of these bodies of water may not see good ice until Late January, or never. Watch shallow bays and ponds and especially those that have light-colored bottoms. Dark lakebeds absorb heat and slow the ice making process. Also try and avoid lakes with lots of trees, poles or other objects sticking above the water line when ice is thin. These objects absorb heat and transmit it to the water below. Ice around protruding, dark objects is often thinner and worse than surrounding ice all winter. The good news is shallow bays, boat cuts and ponds not only have the first safe ice, they also hold the most fish in the early winter. Pan fish crowd into shallow water to feed and take advantage of the warmest water in the lake. Bigger fish follow to eat them. A couple years ago I fished first ice on Devils Lake in North Dakota. We couldn’t find a fish until we tried a shallow, dark and mucky bay. We drilled through a foot of ice and only found two-feet of water, but put tipups out anyway. We caught northern pike and walleyes with our bait hanging just under the ice all day. The biggest fish was 10 pounds. Though it might seem early, get ready for a great year on the ice. There are no guarantees when it comes to fishing, but I think it is going to be one of the best years in a decade. DON MULLIGAN writes Outdoors with Don for this newspaper. He can be reached at

mortgage rates and a shortage of homes on the market contributed to the drop-off. So did delays by potential homebuyers during the government shutdown. • Businesses’ inventories increased by 0.6 percent in September, the Commerce Department said. This caused several economists to bump up their growth forecasts for the previous June-September quarter but to downgrade their expectations for the current quarter. JPMorgan Chase economist Daniel Silver called the possible upcoming decline in business stockpiles a “significant drag on growth.” Analysts had speculated that retail sales would be unchanged in October, slowed by the 16-day partial government shutdown and

by cheaper gasoline that would mean less money spent at the pump. But what many consumers saved on gas they spent on other items. Excluding sales at service stations, retail spending rose 0.5 percent last month. Sales of furniture, electronics, appliances and clothing all showed solid gains. Congress likely blunted some of the impact of the shutdown by guaranteeing back pay for 800,000 furloughed federal workers. “There could be the possibility that all those furloughed workers knew they were going to be paid, so they may have taken the opportunity to take a mini-vacation and go shopping,” said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets.

WASHINGTON (AP) — An increase in shopping last month during the partial government shutdown suggests that the U.S. economy may be more resilient than some have feared. Retail sales increased 0.4 percent in October, the Commerce Department said Wednesday, after being flat the previous month. That jump shows that many consumers remain willing to spend as the all-important holiday shopping season nears. At the same time, other data released Wednesday point to an economy that’s still struggling to reach full health. • Sales of existing homes fell 3.2 percent last month from September, the National Association of Realtors said.

who will be coming off of active duty in the drawdown and through budget cuts. “We are here to help,” he said. “They are going to need jobs. They are going to need people to assist them with integration back into civilian life. We need to be there for our vets.” Last year, the American Legion cosponsored 295 job fairs and untold others that Dellinger said he was not aware of. “We are responsible for our veterans. That’s where membership comes into play. We have the numbers — 4 million members. It is important to tell them who we are and what we do,” he said. That includes consolidated post reporting,

including the number of funerals, programs for youth, children and veterans. “Those are things we need to document,” he said. Dellinger said he estimated 220,000 men and women were assisted through various programs such as scholarships, school awards, Boys and Girls State, and many other projects, with $22 million in support. The statistics account for only 57 percent of all posts, because the rest did not file reports, he said. Dellinger will be returning to his home in Vienna, Va., near Washington D.C., at the end of the week. “Politics has replaced patriotism in this country

— this is not a healthy sign, as far as I know,” Dellinger said. “But we, the American Legion, the largest veterans organization, need to make sure that Washington is well aware that they need to take care of our veterans” He shared hardships many faced during the recent government shutdown and spoke of a news conference he held in front of the World War II memorial in Washington. A reporter asked him who was to blame for the situation. “I don’t blame right or left, but I blame the House, Senate and the president for not carrying out the duties they were sent to Washington to do,” he responded. “As the chief spokesman for the Legion, it is what we do in our communities, it is what we do to take care of our veterans that keeps us on the right path,” Dellinger said. Dellinger’s commander project for the year is the National Emergency Fund. Last year the Legion gave more than $750,000 in grants to help veterans and their families through natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, wildfires and floods. “It’s not whether these natural disasters will happen, it is the where and when” with recent weather anomalies, he added. Dellinger’s scheduled stop in Kokomo Tuesday was scuttled due to power outages that remained in the tornado-damaged city. His goal is to raise $1 million this year, “less than 50 cents per head,” he said of the Legion membership. “We can do that because we, the American Legion, will be there for our veterans and their families in time of need,” he added. Dellinger said he is not worried about membership rolls, but with assisting veterans who need help with jobs, medical assistance and education. He was not active in the Legion until later in his career. One day, Vietnam veterans and older veterans will recognize the importance of the Legion and will have the time in their lives to become involved, he said. Dellinger thanked all the veterans for what they do. “Because you continue to serve, even though you are out of uniform, you still serve every day,” he said. “Every day should be Veterans Day.”

Pacers pull out OT victory NEW YORK (AP) — Paul George made three throws to tie it with 5.2 seconds left in regulation, then scored nine of his seasonhigh 35 points in overtime as the Indiana Pacers pulled out a 103-96 victory Wednesday night over the New York Knicks, who dropped their sixth straight at home. New York scored the first 13 points, but this settled into a playoff-type game between teams who met in the postseason last May. And it again went to the Pacers, who bounced back from their first loss after a franchise-record 9-0 start. George Hill added 23 points and eight rebounds for the Pacers, who beat the Knicks in six games in last season’s Eastern Conference semifinals. Just as in the clincher of that series, Roy Hibbert had a pivotal block on Carmelo Anthony’s drive to the basket. Anthony had 30 points and 18 rebounds for the Knicks, who looked completely deflated after they couldn’t score following the free throws George made when Iman Shumpert was called for fouling him. George then put away the Knicks in overtime, keeping them winless at home since beating Milwaukee on Oct. 30 in their season opener. J.R. Smith had 21 points, and Beno Udrih scored a season-high 19 for the Knicks, including a go-ahead shot with 1:21 left in

throws for an 89-86 lead with 9.2 seconds left. Shumpert was then called for the foul on George, with replays showing what appeared to be perhaps just a slight touch to

George’s arm. The All-Star sank the free throws, and Anthony missed on the other end, and Smith was off on a tip attempt. The stunned Knicks walked back to the bench as if they had just lost — and pretty soon, they had. George followed Hibbert’s block with a 3-pointer, and followed Anthony’s basket with four straight points to put the Pacers in control. The Knicks were again without injured starters Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton. Amare Stoudemire also didn’t play on the second night of the back-to-back, coach Mike Woodson saying the forward isn’t cleared for the 20-25 minutes per night he wants to play. They now go on a four-game road trip, perhaps what they need with their inability to win on their home floor. George was two shy of his career high, bouncing back well from a season-low 12 points on 3-for-14 shooting in a 110-94 loss at Chicago that ended Indiana’s perfect start. The Knicks jumped to a 13-0 lead while Indiana missed its first seven shots. The Pacers were only 5 for 20 in the first quarter, but one of the makes was Hibbert’s ugly, banked 3-pointer that beat the buzzer and cut it to 19-14. New York was ahead 42-37 at the half and never trailed by more than four until overtime.

Indianapolis Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis, center, celebrates with teammates Cory Redding, left, and Ricky Jean Francois after

sacking St. Louis Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens during last Sunday’s game. The Colts need to show more improvement on defense.

Colts look to defense Indy defense trying to plug holes, stop big plays INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Colts defense is moving into prevent mode. Players and coaches have spent extra time fine-tuning their techniques and fundamentals. They’ve talked repeatedly about the need to fill gaps and not do too much, and they’re hoping all the extra work finally eliminates some of those maddening big plays. Over the last 3½ games, Indy’s opponents have scored six touchdowns of 30 or more yards and that doesn’t even include a 98-yard punt return for a score. “Those are explosive plays and you never want to give those up,” said linebacker Robert Mathis, the NFL’s sacks leader. “It’s very fixable and we’re working on it.”

The Colts (7-3) don’t have any time to waste, either. On Sunday, they visit surprising Arizona (6-4) where they’ll take on Larry Fitzgerald and Bruce Arians’ wide-open offense. They still have rematches with Tennessee and Houston, teams that accounted for three of those long scoring plays, and they still have to travel to AFC North-leading Cincinnati and AFC West co-leader Kansas City. Indy leads the AFC South by three games and could clinch the division and earn a home playoff date when the Titans come to town Dec. 1. The Colts insist their problems will be fixed before the playoffs start. “It’s just execution, period.

It’s just execution,” defensive end Cory Redding said. “When it comes to us, we’ve got to be in our gaps and do our job and make the play when you get to make the play.” One thing that could help is the return of some injured players. Each of the four long TD passes came with starting cornerback Greg Toler and backup cornerback Josh Gordy out of action. Both were injured in the second half of the Denver game and have missed the last three weeks because of groin injuries. Backup safety Delano Howell, who had 18 tackles in two starts this season, also missed the last three games with a neck injury.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Bruce Arians does not try to pretend this is just another game. Not after what he and the Indianapolis Colts went through last season. As anyone who pays attention to the NFL knows, Arians took over as interim coach of the Colts when Chuck Pagano was stricken with leukemia. He famously left the light in Pagano’s office on, never to be turned off until the coach returned. Meanwhile, Arians guided Indianapolis to a 9-3 record, earning coach of the year honors in the process. Pagano returned and the Colts went on to the playoffs. It’s a season that propelled Arians to the head coaching job in Arizona and on Sunday his Cardinals will face Pagano and the Colts. “I was hoping it would never be on the schedule,” Arians said, “because there are too many emotional ties to what happened last year to have to play them. I’m just glad we are playing here and not there. That would really be tough to walk into that stadium.” Had Pagano not become ill, Arians might very well never have gotten a chance to be an NFL head coach. Arians said he has reflected on that fact “many, many days.” SEE ARIANS, PAGE B2


Tigers, Texas to swap Fielder, Kinsler DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers and Texas agreed to a blockbuster trade Wednesday night that would send slugger Prince Fielder to the Rangers for second baseman Ian Kinsler, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. Fielder signed a $214 million, nine-year contract with the Tigers before the 2012 season

that includes a limited no-trade provision, and the big first baseman was set to approve the deal. Kinsler just finished the first season of a $75 million, five-year contract. It’s the first headline-grabbing move of baseball’s offseason, and it involves two of the American League’s top teams. Detroit has won three consecutive AL Central titles and reached the World Series in 2012, while Texas won the AL

pennant in 2010 and 2011. But neither team was about to stand pat. With stars like Fielder, Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera and Anibal Sanchez in the fold, Detroit’s payroll had become one of the game’s biggest, and although Fielder hit 55 home runs over the last two years for the Tigers, his numbers dipped this season and he struggled in the playoffs.

East Noble hopes for turnaround 2013-14 Schedule


KENDALLVILLE — With 13 sectional titles and two regional championships, East Noble’s boys basketball program has a proud history of success. However, as of late, things have not exactly been peachy. That can soon change with the hiring of Chad Cripe, a coach who has had experience in flipping programs. In fact, the chance to help build the program back up was one of the major factors in Cripe’s decision to come to East Noble from Class 3A New Prairie. “I know the deep tradition of East Noble basketball. When I heard about (the EN coaching position), it was instantly intriguing. I believe basketball has very deep and strong roots in this community,” Cripe said. Cripe was at the New Carlisle school for six seasons where he accrued a 56-74 record as head coach of the Cougars. When he stepped in at New Prairie, the team just came off of a 2-19 season, its third consecutive single-digit win season. The record turned around quickly when Cripe took over. In his first year, the Cougars doubled their win total (four) and then again in his second season (eight). Win totals increased until last year when the team went 12-9, one win shy of the previous year’s total. Cripe also coached at Southmont High School,

where he went 11-10 as the girls coach. East Noble is in the same situation. Last season, the Knights had their worst record in program history at 2-21. Since long-time coach Marty Johnson retired following the 2005-06 season, East Noble has had one winning season (2006-07, 16-3) and four years of single-digit wins. “When I took over at New Prairie, it required a complete rebuilding process. There are a lot of similarities where we are here and

where New Prairie was,” Cripe said. At New Prairie, “I just learned a lot on how to build a program. We were conference champs (in the Northern State Conference) last year in my final season. We learned a lot and made mistakes along the way.” The transition between coaches should be a smooth one as East Noble returns a large senior class. Five Knights will play their final seasons and three of those were starters last year for coach Josh Treesh.

Aaron Beard, Chase Klinker, Brandon Nichols, Landan Tackett, Caleb Brown and Owen Puckett. In back row, Manny Ritchie, Chris Weber, Michael Sharp, Houston Pattee, Connor Holcomb and Kolin Williams.

One strong returnee for EN is 6-foot 7-inch senior Houston Pattee. Pattee was honored on the All-NHC second team during the 2012-13 campaign and he had eight points and five rebounds in the season-ending loss to Columbia City. Also starting that game were returners Nathan Wible and Landan Tackett. Both recorded a rebound and an assist against the Eagles as juniors. Michael Sharp, a player who came off of the bench, and Connor Holcomb round out

the senior class. Complete season stats were unavailable from last season. The Knights will play mostly man-to-man on defense and move around in a motion-run offense. “It’s not about the individuals right now, but having the kids buy in. Right now it’s more about the name on the front of the jersey than the back,” Cripe said. “We want guys that are going to buy in to our philosophy, dive on the floor and play hard to make

the community proud.” East Noble will open its season with three straight road contests at West Noble (Tuesday), Lakeland (Nov. 30) and Snider (Dec. 14). Columbia City comes to Kendallville for the Knights’ home opener on Dec. 20, the team’s last contest before holiday vacation. Cripe asks the community for patience as he instills roots deep into the feeder program. Wins will start to come down the road. Cripe’s goals for this season are basic: For the Knights to put five players on the floor who will play hard and together. “We want the players to buy into playing hard and playing basketball the right way. We want to put a program out there on the floor that, win, lose or draw, will make the community proud,” Cripe said. “We are really excited to get the community out to the games and cheer on the boys. We are just excited to show how hard we work. This is always your first step when you are trying to instill any system, but moreso when you are trying to build a program.”

Howe will open Golson seeks readmission to school season on Dec. 3 BY AARON ORGAN

HOWE — If last season was a rebuilding year for The Howe School’s boys basketball team, this year’s squad could be built for some success. First-year coach Evan Long takes over a Wildcats program that went 1-19 last year. Long said he predicts a marked improvement from that campaign with a group of players that ooze athleticism. “We have a good group of boys to work with,” said Long. “They’re in tune to what we’re trying to do — building a team concept. We have a lot of athleticism this year; not a lot of height, but we’ve got some guys that can get up and down the court.” Long said the athleticism can be witnessed in two players on the roster capable of dunking the basketball. That athleticism will be called on to run Long’s get-up-and-go motion offense. With not a lot of size to speak of, Long said he’ll put three or four on the perimeter regularly and allow his ball handlers to move to the rim.

Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees (11) talks with head coach Brian Kelly during play this season.

On Monday, he ran more than the usual number of 11-on-11 drills, with the starting offense going against the starting defense. “I thought the legs were fresh. I felt we got, if there was any rust, we got the rust off the guys. We got them out there moving,” he said. Kelly said he took the unusual step of practicing

hard on Monday to make sure everybody was ready, saying he didn’t want the week off to disrupt this week’s practices. “I really needed to know whether these guys could play,” he said. Kelly said nobody on the two-deep chart is definitely out for Saturday when Notre Dame (7-3) faces BYU

(7-3). The biggest improvement is along the defensive line, where the Irish likely would have been without four backups had there been a game last Saturday. Kelly said Ishaq Williams is day-to-day with a knee injury, that he was pleased with the progress of Kona Schwenke (high ankle sprain), and that Jarron Jones and Issac Rochell (ankle sprains) also practiced. Kelly said the coaches spent most of their time during the off week recruiting and focusing on BYU, saying they didn’t spend a lot of time on trying to make any major changes in what the Irish are doing. One of the biggest challenges for the Irish is to make sure they have enough healthy players to go against BYU. The Cougars run an up-tempo offense, averaging nearly 87 plays a game. That compares to fewer than 65 plays a game for the Irish. Kelly said it’s important for the Irish offense to get some first downs to help slow down BYU. “We’ll need to have some controlled drives and have an eye toward keeping their offense off the field,” Kelly said.

Indy came into the season touting its new desire to rely more on the ground game this season, a strategy shift that has produced mixed results. But the Colts’ first-half struggles have increasingly forced them away from that strategy. In a come-from-behind win at Houston and an embarrassing loss at home to St. Louis, Indy ran just 28 times for 87 yards. Last Thursday, at Tennessee, they again trailed early. This time, they stuck with the run, grinding out 137 yards and got the winning score on an 11-yard TD run from Donald Brown. While many have critiqued the slow-starting offense for its inability to stay on the field in the first two quarters of the last

three games, the defense that has created some of its own problems by failing to get off the field. The result: Indy has been outscored 66-9 in the first half since the start of November. “There’s some things we can pinpoint in the last three ballgames in the first half that you can put your finger on and say if we get these things corrected…,” Pagano said. “I told the guys, if you total up just third down, if you look at third down offense and third down defense and you look at us last three ball games, we’ve converted 13 percent of the time and our opponents have converted 62 percent. So that’s something right there that we can focus on both sides on the ball and try to fix.”

he said. “I’m just thankful he’s healthy and beat it and continues to beat it. That was really the whole focus last year. It did present an opportunity, and I’m very thankful for it. But, I hate that it had to happen that way.” For two decades Arians toiled as an offensive assistant, working his way up with stints in Kansas City, New Orleans, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis again. “How you get opportunities is one thing,” Pagano said, “but he’s certainly taking advantage of it. I think everybody in the coaching profession knows that was long overdue.” After helping the Steelers win two Super Bowls, Arians left Pittsburgh in what was officially called a

Then his old friend Pagano called and asked him to come to work as offensive coordinator. Arians, who already had worked with a young Peyton Manning and Ben Roethlisberger, loved the idea of joining rookie Andrew Luck. Arians could not have known that his professional and personal world would be jolted with the news that Pagano was leaving the team for treatment of leukemia. Now, just past his 61st birthday, Arians has the Cardinals 6-4 and just a game out in the NFC wild card playoff chase. Age seems no barrier, either, in doing his job or communicating with young players. “He’s got an incredibly young soul,” Luck said. “I think people of all ages get along with him. He just has

seemed disinclined to revisit the oft-told story of last season. “Obviously, there’s history there,” he said, “(but) it’s the Colts vs. the Cards and he’ll go through his process just like we’ll go through our process in preparation for Sunday’s game.” Both teams are having successful seasons. Indianapolis (7-3) has a three-game lead in the AFC South. Arizona has won three in a row to move within a game of a wild card spot in the NFC. Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer knows this one means a bit more than the records show to the Cardinals coach. “I think this entire locker room has a tremendous respect for him and wants to please him,” Palmer

Not hard feelings. That’s for sure. Arians cherishes his memories of Indianapolis and mentions them often. He and Pagano still talk two or three times a week. Not this week, though. They will get a chance to talk on the field, though. “It will be more emotional pre-game,” Arians said, “seeing the guys for the first time, especially all the younger players who we coached last year, and all the guys. …. It was a very tight group. You don’t accomplish what they accomplished last year without holding each other accountable and having a common cause. It was very special.” On Sunday, there will be “a lot of hugging and high-fiving,” he said, “and then just like playing your brother in your backyard, I’m kicking your (butt).”




Injury gives Tony Stewart new perspective KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) — Tony Stewart has come to loathe stairs. Out of a wheelchair, off his crutches and only in the last week or so walking without the use of a cane, Stewart still hasn’t totally settled back into his usual routine since breaking his right leg in an Aug. 5 sprint car crash. He’s living on his own again, but his most recent digs were on the second floor, and leaving the house each day required a thorough mental checklist. “I have a huge appreciation for just daily things that I can’t do now,” he said. “It’s like I have to plan, I have to think about stuff. When I go to leave, I don’t want to have to go back up those steps. Before I get to the end of the hallway, I make sure I have everything I need before I get down that flight of steps.” Being out of a race car for more than four months now has

given the three-time NASCAR champion a new outlook on just about everything. On pace to run more than 100 races this year before the injury, Stewart instead spent almost a week in a hospital following the accident in Iowa. He spent another week in bed with his leg immobilized, and was essentially confined to the home of his business manager for about a month. Stewart needed an ambulance to transport him to doctor appointments, daily tasks such as bathing were a chore, and the busiest man in racing suddenly had nothing but free time on his hands. “I think it’s very easy to get caught up in everything that’s going on, just daily stuff being a distraction,” he said. “When you have all that taken away from you, your daily activity becomes a lot more subtle and you appreciate it all a lot more. Not only Cup racing, but everything that I do

each day, I think about it different than I did before.” A third surgery in October to address an infection was a setback Stewart wasn’t expecting, and also a wake-up call. He’d been pushing himself from the moment he’d been cleared to leave the house in early September, and tried to enjoy his time at the race track as a spectator and driver coach to Stewart-Haas Racing’s Danica Patrick. But when he landed back in the hospital, he was reminded of advice he received from Brian Vickers, who missed 25 races in 2010 because of blood clots. “Brian Vickers gave me the best piece of advice that I couldn’t use. He says to enjoy your time off. You’re not going to get to do what you want to do in racing so just enjoy your time off,” Stewart said. “The problem was I wasn’t able to get out of bed for the first two weeks. I kept that in mind the

whole time.” So Stewart skipped the NASCAR weekend in Phoenix earlier this month and attended the World of Outlaws World Finals at Charlotte for the first time as a team owner. “In all the years I’ve had my dirt track teams, I’ve never been to the last race of the year with any of them. Never been able to walk through and thank the guys for their hard work,” he said. “I got to do that. I won’t get to do that again. I got to take Brian’s advice and actually apply it to something.” Still planning to be back in the car for the season-opening Daytona 500 in February, Stewart is skipping any normal semblance of a driver offseason to focus on the expansion at Stewart-Haas Racing. While most of his peers will be vacationing and enjoying time off, he’s committed to grueling

Jimmie Johnson ends 2013 Chase with sixth Sprint Cup title

Jimmie Johnson, right, hoists the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Trophy as crew chief Chad Knaus, left, looks on. one of the sport’s all-time record of seven, which is shared by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt. Petty said that making comparisons between his and Earnhardt’s and Johnson’s records is meaningless because they were set in different eras, under different circumstances. “Earnhardt did his thing in his time against his competition,” Petty said. “I did mine against my competition and [Johnson’s] doing his thing against his competition. “We didn’t compete with each other. In other words, he wasn’t there to race against Richard Petty or Earnhardt, and we didn’t have to race against Jimmie Johnson, either. You can’t compare. It’s not apples and apples. It’s apples and oranges.”

Jimmie Johnson takes a victory lap in his No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet after capturing his sixth Sprint Cup Series championship Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Petty did say that he and Johnson do share one major factor in that they both have done the bulk of their winning with the same crew chief — Johnson with Chad Knaus and Petty with his cousin Dale Inman. “It’s everything,” Petty said of the chemistry between driver and crew chief. “It’s just like me and Dale Inman. It was like a one-operation show with two people, so you’ve got to have that. It doesn’t make any difference if it’s football or baseball or whatever.” Petty also said that Johnson and Knaus likely would keep on winning for some time to come. “He’s liable to go to eight to 10 [championships],” he said. In his champion’s interview, Johnson seemed comfortable with his greatness, as described by those around him. “I’m humbled by the nice things that have been said by competitors and owners, my peers in this industry,” he said. “I think their opinion is very important. I don’t think my opinion matters. It’s not for the athlete, the driver. It’s bestowed upon you, it’s passed down from others.”

Austin Dillon holds on to capture his first Nationwide Series title

Austin Dillon and his No. 3 Chevrolet struggled to a 12th-place finish in the season finale for the Nationwide Series, but it was enough to give him the driver’s championship by three points over Sam Hornish Jr., who finished eighth. It was Dillon’s second NASCAR title, the first coming in the Camping World Truck Series in 2011. Brad Keselowski won the Ford 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and his car owner Roger Penske and his No. 22 Ford team took the owner’s title by one point over the No. 54 Toyota team owned by J.D. Gibbs. The finish of the race and the outcome of the championship were clouded in controversy when a 12-lap caution period near the end of the race prevented Hornish, who had outrun Dillon for much of the race, from being able to close the points gap on Dillon. Robin Pemberton, NASCAR’s vice president of competition, met with the media to explain why NASCAR didn’t display the red flag and stop the race while the track was cleaned. “It really looked like it was going to be a typical cleanup, a typical wreck,” he said. “You can use your hindsight every chance that you want to, but in this particular time, we did the best we could to do and it was more important to get the track ready.” Pemberton also said there was no pressure from ESPN, which was broadcasting the race, to end it as soon as possible so that it wouldn’t interfere with the broadcast of the Alabama-Mississippi State football game. “There was nothing like that,” he said. Dillon, who plans to move on to the Sprint Cup Series next season, said it wouldn’t

Matt Crafton caps stellar 2013 season with Truck Series championship

Brian Lawdermilk for Chevrolet Brian Lawdermilk for Chevrolet

Even before he secured his sixth Sprint Cup championship with a ninth-place finish in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Jimmie Johnson was considered one of the greatest NASCAR drivers ever. The questions for many now become how long he and Chad Knaus, his crew chief since the start of his Cup career, can keep on dominating the series and where they will end up on the all-time winners lists in NASCAR. Denny Hamlin, who won the season finale to extend his own record to eight consecutive seasons with at least one win, is among those who have challenged Johnson for a title but come up short. In 2010, Hamlin led the series in victories with eight and took a 15-point lead over Johnson in the season finale only to lose the championship to him. Hamlin said Sunday that Johnson’s team stands apart from the rest because it usually doesn’t make errors when the pressure is on. “They just don’t make any mistakes,” he said. “They don’t have 20th or worse finishes that it seems like every one team has throughout the Chase, whether it be a superspeedway or whatever. You have to beat him on performance. To do that, that’s really hard.” He said that Johnson, who has 66 career Cup wins, is the best NASCAR driver of all time. “Unfortunately, we’re racing during the Jimmie Johnson era,” Hamlin said. “We’re just unlucky in that sense. I think being out there and racing with him, I can say that I think he’s the best that there ever was. He’s racing against competition that is tougher than this sport’s ever seen.” Hamlin’s teammate Matt Kenseth, who finished second to Hamlin at Homestead and second to Johnson in the championship standings, agreed that Johnson’s success is unparalleled. “Jimmie and that team are obviously unbelievable,” Kenseth said. “Never seen anything like this in the sport and probably will never see anything like it again. It’s amazing with as tight as the rules are, multi-car teams, information sharing, and all that stuff. It’s amazing they can figure out how to do that year after year.” Johnson’s championship puts him within

been a caution. It’s just one of those things that wasn’t meant to be.” Dillon, who drives for his grandfather Richard Childress, said he’s looking forward to the next step of his career. “That [Sprint Cup] level is a little bit bigger of a jump for sure,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the challenge. I think definitely Rookie of the Year is definitely what we want to get next year. That’s our main focus, and to gain as much experience as I can.” Keselowski, who went from 10th place to first in the final laps at Homestead, secured Ford the manufacturer’s title for the series and gave the carmaker 15 Nationwide wins for the year. Keselowski, the defending Cup champion, also played a key role in Penske winning the owner’s title. While he drove the team’s No. 48 Ford at Homestead, he had seven wins in Penske’s No. 22 throughout the season. His Cup teammate Joey Logano had three, A.J. Allmendinger had two and Ryan Blaney one in the No. 22. Trevor Bayne and Hornish also had a win apiece this season for Ford. Kyle Larson, who finished second at Homestead to give him four runner-up finishes for the season, was named the circuit’s Rookie of the Year. The Asian-American youngster is the first Drive for Diversity participant to take that honor. “A lot of the veterans in the past and in the current Cup Series have won the Rookie of the Year,” said Larson, who will race in Cup next year for Chip Ganassi’s Chevrolet team. “To add my name to that list hopefully means I’m doing something good.”

rehabilitation three days a week. But he also feels a responsibility to be available to Greg Zipadelli, who spent a decade with him as crew chief at Joe Gibbs Racing and is now charged with running all four teams at SHR. Zipadelli is overseeing the expansion to four cars, assembling a crew for Kurt Busch’s new team and orchestrating a reorganization that will give Stewart his third crew chief in three years. Stewart, who jettisoned Darian Grubb immediately after winning the 2011 Sprint Cup title with him, has signed Chad Johnston to replace Steve Addington after two seasons. Stewart acknowledged not being able to be in the car before Daytona to work with Johnston “is not ideal” but said speaking to his new crew chief daily will help build a rapport. Still, after working with Zipadelli for 10 years, he’ll be on his third crew chief in six seasons.

Matt Crafton has been one of the most consistent drivers in the Camping World Truck Series with 316 consecutive starts. But his most recent start, on Friday at HomesteadMiami Speedway, produced the biggest moment of his career. Just by starting the season-ending Ford 200 he clinched the driver’s title for the first time in his career. It also was the first time his team, owned by Duke and Rhonda Thorson, had been part of a championship, but a crash on the first of three green-white-checkered runs to the finish cost the Thorsons an owner’s title. Kyle Busch wound up winning the race and tying the Thorsons atop the owner’s standings, so the title went to Busch because he had more race wins this season. Still, it was a major milestone for Crafton and the Thorsons. “It’s an honor to be able to do it for Duke and Rhonda Thorson that have been doing this for 18 years, and to give them the first championship and me driving for them for 13 years,” said Crafton, who also had high praise for the crew of his No. 88 Toyota. “These guys are the ones that work so hard,” he said. “I’m just the one that gets to celebrate and look like the hero because I got to drive a great truck all year.” Crafton had an amazingly consistent year. He won at Kansas Speedway and had 19 top-10 finishes in 22 starts. He also had an 11th-place run, at Las Vegas. His Homestead finish was his worst of the season, but he still finished on the lead lap despite his late-race crash, which meant that he completed all 3,391 laps this season. “It’s been an awesome year,” Crafton said. “It’s been the greatest year of my life so far. To have a baby and win a NASCAR championship, nobody can ever take that away from me.” Busch’s owner’s championship came on the strength of six wins for the No. 51 Toyota team, five by Busch and one by rookie Eric Jones. Others driving that truck this season included Scott Bloomquist, Chad Hackenbracht and Denny Hamlin. Ryan Blaney, who finished second at Homestead, won the circuit’s Rookie of the Year honors.

TRADE: Rangers looking to add big bat to team FROM PAGE B1

The trade could give Detroit more financial flexibility, with Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer a year from free agency. Fielder, however, is still only 29, and the Rangers would be adding a big bat to the middle of their lineup while also resolving a logjam in the middle of their infield. Jurickson Profar, a highly touted 20-year-old prospect, appeared to be blocked by Kinsler and shortstop Elvis Andrus. Now Profar should have a chance to play regularly. The Tigers signed Fielder to a huge contract shortly before spring training in 2012 — after designated hitter Victor Martinez injured his knee. Martinez came back in 2013. With Fielder gone, Cabrera may move from third base back to first. Kinsler fills a need at second base for Detroit after Omar Infante became a free agent.




Wife feels violated by husband’s touch DEAR ABBY: I love my husband very much. Until the last few years there have never been any problems in our 20-year marriage. I have depression and epilepsy, and I am on five different medications for them. Sometimes when I have come out of a seizure, I have found that my clothes have been removed and my husband is “touching” me. Also, because the medication puts me into a deep sleep at night, I have half-awakened to him having sex with me. I am so groggy I can’t respond. Is this right? I feel like I have been violated, but I haven’t said anything to him. This causes me to cringe most of the time when he touches me now. I’d like to get back to a normal love life, but I can’t get over what he does to me when I’m not fully aware. How do I tell him




I know what he has been doing without ruining my marriage? — FEELING VIOLATED DEAR FEELING VIOLATED: You feel violated because what your husband is doing is called spousal rape, and it’s a criminal offense. DEAR Having ABBY sex with someone who is so Jeanne Phillips doped up she (or he) can’t give consent is a sexual assault. Tell your husband you know what he has been doing, how you feel about it and that you would prefer

that the two of you make love while you are wide awake and able to fully enjoy it. This should be discussed with a marriage counselor and, if necessary, the police. For everything you need to know about wedding planning, order “How to Have a Lovely Wedding.” Send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Wedding Booklet, P.O.

On this date Nov. 21: • In 1942, the Alaska Highway was formally opened. • In 1980, 87 people died in a fire at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev. • In 2003, more than a dozen rockets fired from donkey carts slammed into Iraq’s Oil Ministry and two downtown Baghdad hotels used by foreign journalists and civilian defense contractors.


Treat toddler’s constipation with diet changes children do not have constipation, it is a common problem. That’s particularly true for children between the ages of 2 to 5. This is the period when toilet training and developmental changes are happening. Many toddlers eat little fiber and lots of foods that ASK contribute to DOCTOR K. constipation, such as dairy products, Dr. Anthony rice and bananas. Komaroff Children also often don’t drink enough fluids. All these factors can cause constipation. Toddlers also often wait too long to go to the bathroom. They may be

resisting toilet training or just be too busy playing. When a child withholds stool, it becomes hard and dry, and this may cause pain with the next bowel movement. So the child begins a cycle of withholding stool. Before turning to medication, try modifying your child’s diet and toilet habits: • Give your son more fiber-rich foods, such as beans, broccoli, carrots, bran, whole grains and fresh fruits. • Minimize the dairy foods you feed him, such as yogurt, cheese and milk. • Have your son drink prune juice. It works for kids as well as for adults. • Encourage your toddler to drink four to six glasses of water each day. • Make sure he gets regular exercise. • If your son is toilettrained, help him establish
