Auburn raising power rates Home rates up 20% BY DAVE KURTZ

AUBURN — The city-owned electric utility for Auburn needs an 8.9 percent increase in income, a consultant told the Auburn Common Council Tuesday night. The resulting increase in rates would not be the same for all types of customers, however.

Most residential customers would see a 20 percent increase under proposed new rates passed by the Auburn Common Council on a first reading at City Hall. The city’s two largest industrial customers — Metal Technologies Inc. and Guardian Industries, who together use more than one-third of all power — would see a 1.4 percent increase. The next 10 largest users consume about

Judge could rule soon on Ritz lawsuit INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A Marion County judge could decide by Friday whether School Superintendent Glenda Ritz’s lawsuit against the other members of the State Board of Education may proceed. Deputy Attorney General David Arthur told Judge Louis Rosenberg Tuesday that Ritz could not file suit as a state official without approval from the attorney general. But Ritz lawyer Michael Moore argued the suit should proceed because the state school superintendent has standing as a separate constitutional office. Ritz claims the board members violated the state’s open meetings law when they asked that calculation of “A-F” school grades be conducted by the General Assembly’s bill-drafting arm.

Albion company shipping swine to China FROM STAFF REPORTS

ALBION — A Noble County agricultural enterprise continues to ship its products to China. Last month, Whiteshire Hamroc, based in rural Albion, exported its largest international shipment of swine breeding stock to China. The latest shipment consisted of 1,180 pigs representing three of the four major breeds of swine in the United States: Yorkshire, Landrace and Duroc. This was not the first nor will it be the last shipment of Indianabred hogs headed to China, the world’s most populous country, officials of the company said. Whiteshire Hamroc has made several previous shipments of live animals to China, but the Oct. 14 shipment is the largest for the Noble County company. The shipments are coordinated for Whiteshire Hamroc by Clayton Agri-Marketing of Jefferson City, Mo. A specially equipped cargo plane was used to transport the

hogs out of a Chicago airport, after they were trucked to Chicago from Noble County. The Chinese government has endorsed the project because American farms, such as Whiteshire Hamroc, are considered the world’s foremost experts in swine genetics. Whiteshire Hamroc is the largest U.S. recorder of Yorkshire, Landrace, Duroc and Hampshire combined, according to the National Swine Registry 2012 recordings. Whiteshire Hamroc has been exporting swine breeding stock for more than 20 years to more than 22 different countries and started its relationship with the Chinese about three years ago. “International interest in U.S. swine genetics continues to grow and represent a larger percentage of Whiteshire Hamroc’s business,” said Dr. Mike Lemmon, CEO of Whiteshire Hamroc. “We are very active within the Chinese market, with Whiteshire Hamroc having an office and support staff in


Workers had their hands full loading more than 1,100 hogs onto a plane at a Chicago airport last month. The swine from the Whiteshire Hamroc farm in Albion were destined for China.

Beijing, China.” Whiteshire Hamroc plans to export several additional

shipments of swine breeding stock to China over the next several months, Lemmon said.

Clarification • Smaltz clarifies statements in story State Rep. Ben Smaltz, R-Auburn, has asked for clarification of two statements attributed to him in a story published Sunday about Indiana’s same-sex marriage constitutional amendment. The story said Smaltz remarked that no one has filed a bill for the amendment in the 2014 legislative session. A spokeswoman for Smaltz said no one can file legislation until the Indiana General Assembly’s organization day, Nov. 19. The story also said Smaltz declined to say how he would vote on the amendment. The spokeswoman said Smaltz cannot form an opinion until he has seen the final bill in front of him, since it could be amended from the version passed in the 2011 session.

Region • Indy police officer guilty in fatal crash FORT WAYNE (AP) — An Indianapolis police officer was convicted Tuesday of driving drunk and causing a fatal crash in a case that has roiled the city’s police department for more than three years. An Allen County jury deliberated for about seven hours before returning its verdict in the case of Officer David Bisard.

Routine check leads to theft arrests BY BOB BRALEY

KENDALLVILLE — What started as a routine check of hull numbers for a boat and trailer ended with the arrests of a Kendallville couple, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. Patrick A. Perkins, 41, and his wife, Venessa Lynn Perkins, 40, were booked into the Noble County Jail Monday on Elkhart County warrants for charges of theft. The incident began when Deputy Shafter Baker was called to perform a routine

check on the hull identification numbers on a newly purchased boat and trailer in the 200 block of Sunset Shores just after 11 a.m. Monday. State law requires police to inspect boats and trailers for hull and vehicle

ID numbers, he said. Questions arose in examining the numbers, Baker said. The proper numbers were not present on the boat and trailer. He interviewed the purchaser, who had requested the hull ID check. Baker checked the numbers on the boat and trailer and found they were registered to the Perkinses. A records check also showed Elkhart County had theft warrants issued for the Perkinses. Baker went to the Perkins residence in the 10000 block

of East C.R. 1000N, where he found Venessa Perkins at home. She called Patrick Perkins and told him about the warrants, the deputy said. Both cooperated and surrendered without incident, Baker said. The investigation is continuing into whether the boat and trailer were stolen, Baker said. Further charges may be coming as a result of the investigation. The Perkinses were transported to Elkhart County by its authorities Tuesday, Noble County’s jail staff confirmed.

Award-winning Chicago chef Charlie Trotter dies CHICAGO (AP) — Award-winning chef Charlie Trotter, a self-taught culinary master whose namesake Chicago restaurant elevated the city’s cuisine and provided a training ground for some of the nation’s other best chefs, has died at the age of 54. Paramedics were called around 10 a.m. Tuesday to his Lincoln Park home, where they found Trotter unresponsive. An ambulance crew transported Trotter to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he died after unsuccessful attempts to revive him, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said. An autopsy was planned for Wednesday.

Trotter’s name is synonymous with gourmet cuisine. He earned 10 James Beard Awards and provided Trotter a training ground for some of the country’s other best-known chefs, such as fellow Beard Award- winner Grant Achatz of Chicago restaurants Alinea and Next. Charlie Trotter’s earned two stars when the highly respected Michelin Guide debuted in Chicago. “His restaurant shaped the world of food,” said Dana Cowin, editor-in-chief of Food & Wine magazine. “He was so innovative and focused and intense and really brilliant. When he opened Charlie Trotter he was so original.”

White House sidesteps on existing coverage bill WASHINGTON (AP) — Under growing pressure, the administration refused repeatedly to state a position Tuesday on legislation formalizing President Barack Obama’s oft-stated promise that people who like their existing coverage should be allowed to keep it under the new health care law. Senate Democrats spoke dismissively of the proposals, signaling they have no intention of permitting a vote on the issue that marks the latest challenge confronting supporters of “Obamacare.” An earlier controversy appeared to be ebbing on a law that has generated more than its share of them. Even so, one strong supporter of the health care law, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R. I., good-naturedly told an administration official, “Good luck getting through this mess.” Whitehouse spoke to Marilyn Tavenner, the head of the agency deeply involved in implementing the law. She had assured lawmakers that initial flaws with the government’s

website were systematically yielding to around-the-clock repair effort. “Users can now successfully create an account and continue through the full application and enrollment process,” said Tavenner, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. “We are now able to process nearly 17,000 registrants per hour, or 5 per second, with almost no errors.” She encouraged consumers to log onto the site and check it out, and said the administration had estimated that enrollments will total 800,000 by the end of November. At the same time, she repeatedly refused to tell inquiring Republicans how many enrollments have taken place to date, saying that information would be made available at mid-month. Across the Capitol, that reluctance drew a subpoena from Rep. Dave Camp, the Michigan Republican who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee. He said the material was “critical government information” that the administration

has refused to provide voluntarily, and demanded that it be turned over by Friday. In response, a CMS spokeswoman, Tasha Bradley, said: “We have received the subpoena and are committed to working with the committee to accommodate their interest in this issue.” She did not explicitly pledge compliance. In her testimony, Tavenner also sought to reassure lawmakers who expressed concerns about cybersecurity at www. . Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., cited the case of a Columbia, S.C. attorney, who used the website to look for coverage, only to learn later that some of his personal information had been made available to a different browser, a man in North Carolina. “Has this happened before?” Scott asked. “Can you guarantee that Social Security numbers … are secure? Will you shut down the website, as my friends from the left have already suggested, until security issues are fixed?”

Companies show profits even as U.S economy lags WASHINGTON (AP) — Look at the U.S. economy and you’ll notice an unusual disconnect. The economy is being slowed by a tight job market, scant pay raises and weak business investment. Yet corporate profits are reaching record highs and fueling record stock prices. What gives? How are companies managing to earn so much money in a sluggish economy? And why aren’t their profits goosing the economy? For starters, weak job growth has held down pay. And since the recession struck six years ago, businesses have been relentless in cutting costs. They’ve also stockpiled cash rather than build new products or lines of business. And they’ve been earning larger chunks of their profits overseas. All of which is a recipe for solid profits and tepid economic growth. The economy grew at a meager annual rate of just 1.8 percent in the first half of 2013. The unemployment rate is 7.2 percent, far above

the 5 percent to 6 percent considered healthy. Even so, corporate profits equaled 12.5 percent of the economy in the April-June quarter, just below a 60-year high reached two years ago. Profits of companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 have nearly doubled since June 2009. Earnings appear to have risen again in the July-September quarter. Big companies like Kellogg, FedEx and Best Buy have been slashing costs in the face of slowing revenue. Their strategy has been working: Despite sluggish revenue, their profits are up. Burger King’s sales dropped last quarter as competition intensified. Yet the company’s earnings surged because it cut expenses and enjoyed growth overseas. “Corporations have more market power than workers have and have kept wage growth to subdued levels,” says Dean Maki, an economist at Barclays. “That’s left more for corporate profits.” Those solid earnings

have helped boost stock prices. So has the Federal Reserve’s drive to keep long-term interest rates near record lows: Lower bond yields have led many investors to shift money out of bonds and into stocks, thereby boosting stock prices. The Dow Jones industrial average has jumped nearly 20 percent this year, closing at 15,639 on Monday, just below its record high. “If we ended the year at these levels, it would be a phenomenal year,” said Bob Doll, chief equity strategist with Nuveen Asset Management. Here are factors economists cite for the gap between healthy corporate profits and subpar economic growth: Wages and salaries equaled just 42.6 percent of the economy in the April-June quarter, near a record low set in 2011. More than 8.5 million jobs were lost in the recession and its aftermath, leaving workforces leaner and more productive. Corporate revenue rose as the economy recovered.

New Jersey first lady Mary Pat Christie laughs as her husband, Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, jokes with the media after they voted in Mendham

Township, N.J., Tuesday. Christie defeated Democratic challenger Barbara Buono in Tuesday’s election.

Christie easily re-elected governor of New Jersey ASBURY PARK, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie was re-elected with ease Tuesday, demonstrating the kind of broad, bipartisan appeal that will serve as his opening argument should he seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. With 23 percent of precincts reporting, Christie had 58 percent of the vote to Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono’s 41 percent. He was expected to become the first Republican in a quarter-century to receive more than 50 percent of the New Jersey vote. This, in a state that President Barack Obama carried a year ago by more than 17 points, his biggest margin in the nation. Buono told supporters in her hometown of Metuchen, on the fringes of the New York area, shortly after polls closed that she had called Christie to congratulate him. She noted they had their differences but added, “when it comes down to it, we’re just two parents who

want to see the best for our children’s future.” Christie performed strongly across the political spectrum. Interviews with voters as they left polling places found Christie re-elected with broad support among whites, independents, moderates, voters over 40 and those opposing the health care law, among others. He did well among groups that typically lean Democratic, carrying a majority of women and splitting Hispanics with Buono. And Christie improved on his share of the vote among blacks in 2009 by more than 10 percentage points. The interviews were conducted for the AP and television networks ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox News by Edison Research. Backed by soaring approval ratings for his leadership after Superstorm Sandy, the tell-it-like-it-is governor built a winning coalition by aggressively courting constituencies

that often shun the GOP: minorities, women and even Democrats, who outnumber Republicans among registered voters by more than 3 to 2. Christie, who is openly considering running for president, has said his success offers a template for broadening the GOP’s appeal after the disastrous 2012 election cycle and the party’s record-low approval ratings following the recent government shutdown. Christie will take over later this month as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, a position that will further raise his national profile. Christie becomes his party’s biggest winner on a night in which the GOP and the Democrats were in a close gubernatorial election in Virginia that featured conservative firebrand Ken Cuccinelli. Christie, in contrast, painted himself as a pragmatic leader who worked with Democrats to get the job done during his four years in office.

POWER: Rates adjusted for first time since 1973 FROM PAGE A1

one-fifth of all power and would feel rate increases of 14 percent. To set the new rates, Auburn’s electric utility studied and adjusted the fairness of its rates to each type of customer for the first time since 1973. “It was really time to come in and study … and redesign the rates,” said John Skomp of the Crowe Horwath consulting firm Indianapolis office. Even with the residential rate increase, Auburn would be “still very competitive with the communities around us for the residential customer class,” Skomp said. Skomp’s comparison shows an Auburn residential customer now pays $69.58 for 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity. The new rate would be $83.60. His chart says Indiana Michigan Power Co. retail customers pay $99.29 for the same usage, and Northern Indiana Public Service Co. (NIPSCO) charges $119. The state average is $103.46.

Auburn has 5,181 residential electricity customers who use slightly more than 10 percent of all power. Another 897 customers receive a rate for all-electric homes. and they would see a slightly lower rate increase of 17.2 percent. The city’s rates cover 13 separate categories of residential, commerical and industrial customers. The city council will hold a public hearing on the proposed rates Nov. 19 before its final vote. State approval of the new rates could take nine months to a year, Skomp said. The city utility serves customers in Auburn and the surrounding area, purchasing electricity from American Electric Power at wholesale rates and reselling and distributing it. Auburn’s electric utility needs $34.6 million to operate for a year and is bringing in $31.8 million, the study shows. The first change in rates since 1989 is designed to make up the $2.75 million deficit, which is predicted under a new contract for buying power.

Electricity purchases from American Electric Power make up $28.2 million of the city utility’s operating costs. The proposed rates also allow $2 million per year for improvements to the city’s system and replacement of aging equipment. The proposed rates will be submitted to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission for approval after a review by the state’s office of Utility Consumer Counselor. Councilman Mike Walter raised questions about the city’s negotiations over rates for large customers. “We did not give in on everything they wanted by any means,” Skomp said. Walter cast the council’s only vote against the new rates. He said he objects to the use of electric utility crews to help build Rieke Park several years ago, contending the utility should have been reimbursed by the city park department. He described his objection as “pretty small potatoes,” but added, “I feel pretty strongly about it.”

ANNEX: Majority of landowners signed petition FROM PAGE A1

on annexation is scheduled for Nov. 19, with a final vote in March. It would take effect Jan. 1, 2015. The fiscal plan says all properties within the proposed annexation area are or will be served by city water and sewer lines. It says a majority of the property owners have signed petitions requesting the annexation. The area is accessible to water lines along Indiana Avenue, and the city plans to install water lines along Orchard Drive in 2014, the plan says. Also next year, the city plans to extend

sanitary sewers to the area. The plan adds that Auburn is in the process of extending Grandstaff Drive to Betz Road. The extension will open land west of the proposed annexation area for development. Seven vacant lots could be developed after infrastructure is extended to the area, the plan says. The new water line along Orchard Drive in 2014 is expected to cost approximately $75,000, plus $7,000 for two fire hydrants. Plans call for approximately 2,700 feet of sanitary sewer lines within the annexation area and

beyond in 2014 at an estimated cost of $450,000 to $500,000. “These lines will not only serve the annexed properties, but also open the surrounding area up for future growth and development,” the fiscal plan says. The report estimates assessed valuation of the annexation territory at $2,238,000. The plan estimates annual property tax revenue to the city of $9,136 and total revenue of $9,951 from the annexed area. It forecasts added expenses of $4,169 per year, mostly for street maintenance.

Boilers seek solutions to problems INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Darrell Hazell isn’t changing course. He can’t afford to now. Rather than dwelling on last weekend’s demoralizing loss or Purdue’s first six-game losing streak in two decades, Hazell is working overtime to end this ugly tailspin and stabilize a team that appears to be in a free fall. Hazell is not revising his long-term blueprint. “Obviously you’ve got to see where you need to make the improvements and you’ve got to make those improvements, but the structure, the scheme and the vision, that doesn’t change,” Hazell said Tuesday. “If you start to waver, then you have some issues. We’re going to work hard, and we’re going to find those solutions to the problems we are having. If we can fix them, we’re going to fix them.” Purdue (1-7, 0-4 Big Ten) has endured back-to-back

shutouts for the first time in six decades and will try to avoid its first three-shutout streak since November 1941 when Iowa (5-4, 2-3) comes to town Saturday. Twice this season, the Boilermakers have allowed a Ross-Ade Stadium scoring record for an opponent to be broken (Northern Illinois, 55; Ohio State, 56). The most recent blowout, 56-0 to No. 4 Ohio State, was the most lopsided home loss in school history and only the third time Purdue has ever lost a game by 56. Chicago did it in 1907 and Iowa matched it in 1922 — a school record that hadn’t been touched until last weekend. Purdue also is 121st in scoring (11.5 points per game), a number that ranks ahead of only two Bowl Subdivision schools (Florida International, 11.4; Miami (Ohio), 10.9) — and a virtually unfathomable number for a school known SEE BOILERS, PAGE B2

Briefly •

Komets win twice in Las Vegas LAS VEGAS, Nev. — The Fort Wayne Komets won two of three games over the Las Vegas Wranglers in a weekend series. Defenseman Jace Coyle’s power-play goal late in the first-period was the game-winner in a penaltyfilled 4-1 win Sunday afternoon. The teams combined for 116 penalty minutes, and four players — two on each team — received game misconducts. Chris Auger scored twice and Brandon Marino had a goal in Sunday’s win. New goalie Andrey Makarov stopped 35-of-36 shots Sunday. He was also the winning goalie in Friday’s 3-1 win. In that game, Auger’s second-period goal was the winner. Scott Fleming and Mickey Lang also scored for the Komets. Saturday, Greg Coburn scored with less than five minutes to play to give the Wranglers a 2-1 win. Marino scored the lone Komet goal. The Komets (2-2-0-2) play a 10:30 a.m. game today at Evansville and return home to play the Wheeling Nailers at 8 p.m. Friday.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Paul George scored 31 points, and the Indiana Pacers remained the NBA’s only unbeaten team with a 99-91 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night. The Pacers matched their best start in franchise history. They are 4-0 for the first time since the 2004-05 season. Indiana blew a 15-point lead in the first half but took control again with a strong third quarter. C.J. Watson had 15 points and David West finished with 12 for the Pacers. Brandon Jennings scored 17 points for the Pistons, who were done in by their 5-for-25 shooting from 3-point range. Detroit led 44-40 early in the third quarter before the Pacers went on a 15-2 run capped by an alley-oop to George. He scored 14 points in the quarter, and Indiana led 74-63 entering the fourth. Detroit cut the deficit to four early in the final period, but Indiana responded with six straight points to lead 82-72. The Pacers stretched the lead to 19 at 94-75 before the Pistons rallied in the final minutes to make the final score more respectable. It was 96-91 after Detroit’s Kyle Singler made two free throws with 32.6 seconds left, but the Pacers broke Detroit’s pressure and the Pistons didn’t foul. West made a layup with 16.6 seconds left. The Pacers have won six straight over the Pistons, and the previous three wins had been lopsided, by 19, 32 and 18 points. The Pacers were without George Hill (sore left hip) for a second straight game, and Danny

Granger is still out with a strained left calf, but they’ve been holding teams to progressively lower field-goal percentages through this undefeated start. Detroit finished

at 38 percent and could not overcome its poor showing from the perimeter. George made his first five shots and finished the first quarter with

12 points, helping the Pacers to a 29-14 lead. Then they were outscored 27-9 in the second. SEE PACERS, PAGE B3

HOUSTON (AP) — Texans coach Gary Kubiak is out of the hospital after suffering what the team said was a mini-stroke, but there’s no word on when he will resume coaching duties. The team said the 52-yearold Kubiak suffered a transient ischemic attack at halftime of Sunday’s loss to Indianapolis. He was released from the hospital on Tuesday and is expected to make a full recovery. “I’ve been through an ordeal and my focus now is to get back to good health,” Kubiak said in a statement released by the team. “Doctors have told me I will make a full recovery.” Kubiak collapsed on the field and was rushed to a hospital. The Texans blew an 18-point lead without him and the 27-24 setback was the team’s sixth straight loss. A transient ischemic attack, or TIA, occurs when blood flow to the brain is briefly interrupted, typically by a blood clot or narrowed blood vessels. TIAs are often called mini-strokes and can cause stroke-like symptoms including sudden dizziness, numbness, vision

loss or unconsciousness, though symptoms last only a few minutes or a few hours and no permanent brain damage occurs. TIAs are often a warning sign for a future stroke. “Someone who has a real TIA has a higher risk of stroke,” said Dr. Larry Goldstein, a professor of neurology and the director of the Duke Stroke Center. “The highest risk is over the next in general 90 days or so. The highest risk is relatively soon afterward, over the first few days.” Goldstein said that patients who have a mini-stroke are evaluated to try to understand the cause and identify and treat any risk factors that might have led to it. “By definition a TIA is transient so the symptoms go away in a few minutes, so from a physical standpoint there should be no long-lasting consequences,” Goldstein said. Former Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker had a mini-stroke in 2012. Baker, who was initially hospitalized for an irregular heartbeat, returned to manage the Reds less than two weeks after his mini-stroke.




Notre Dame thrives in close games SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — No. 24 Notre Dame has shown a flair for winning close games of late. Since the start of the 2012 season, the Fighting Irish (7-2) have won 10 straight games decided by a touchdown or less, tying coach Brian Kelly with Knute Rockne for the second-longest such streak in school history. But Notre Dame was favored by two or more touchdowns for half of those close ones. “So you’re saying I haven’t covered and you’re upset about that?” Kelly quipped Tuesday. Kelly said he understands the perception that perhaps the Irish haven’t won some games by as large a margin as expected, but doesn’t agree with the premise. “Winning in college football is hard to do each and every week,” he said. “Teams play us so hard. Guys from Navy in tears, grown men crying after a game they put so much effort and their soul into the game. It’s hard to win.” But not all teams are having as much difficulty as Notre Dame has experienced with some of its lesser opponents. The Irish were favored by 20½ points at Purdue on Sept. 14, and

then scored 21 points early in the fourth quarter to win 31-24. The Boilermakers are 1-7 this season, with five of the losses by 31 points or more. The other loss was 14-0 to Michigan State. So Notre Dame’s come-from-behind victory against Purdue doesn’t look

particularly impressive. Next up for the Irish is Pittsburgh (4-4) on Saturday night. The Panthers have lost two in a row. Kelly said when he arrived at Notre Dame he had heard that one of the challenges for the iconic program was that opponents were usually more excited

about playing the Irish than the Irish were about facing the opponent. He said he doesn’t believe that’s true, pointing to last week’s game when Notre Dame was fortunate to hang on for a 38-34 victory against Navy, a game where the Irish were favored by 15.5 points. “There is a lot of pressure at Notre Dame, a lot of scrutiny, there were nine lead changes in that game against Navy, they were down in the fourth quarter, they had to come back in the fourth quarter, and they had to hold the lead,” he said. “Those kids can take that with them because that takes a lot to do those things. I’m proud of the way they competed and won that football game. More so than what they were supposed to do. What they did do was more important to me.” The only time the Irish were underdogs in the winning streak in close games was against Arizona State in Arlington, Texas on Oct. 5. The Sun Devils were 5½-point favorites, but the Irish won 37-34, with linebacker Dan Fox clinching the win by returning an interception for a touchdown with 68 seconds left. Arizona State added a TD with 11 seconds left.

Trine’s Rabel wins MIAA weekly award ROYAL OAK, Mich. — The Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association has named Trine outside hitter Taylor Rabel its Position Player of the Week for matches played through Saturday. Rabel, a sophomore from Muncie (Central High School), battled through an injury to come up with 30 kills and a hitting percentage of .424 for the week as the Thunder posted two victories to clinch a berth in the MIAA tournament. She slammed 19 kills with zero errors and had a career-high hitting percentage of .613 in a four-set win over Albion, then came through with 11 kills in a sweep of Alma that clinched the tournament berth. Rabel is being honored as Player of the Week for the first time in her career.

Club Bowling East Noble, DeKalb tied atop girls bowling standings AUBURN — The East Noble girls bowling team won its second match of the season, beating Garrett 15-5.

East Noble girls with a 318 series while Lindsay Crosby led Garrett with a 285 series. The DeKalb girls topped Eastside 11-9. Nicole Redden led DeKalb with a 283 series while Briana Marquis led Eastside with a 382 series. East Noble girls and DeKalb girls are tied atop the Northeast Indiana High School Bowling Conference standings with 2-0 records. Boys teams from East Noble and Lakeland tied on points 10-10, but Lakeland won the match by total pin count by two pins. East Noble was led by Kyle Spencer with a 423 series. Lakeland was led by Derrick Dunn with a 409 series. Central Noble beat Cornerstone 12-8. Central Noble was led by Devon Adair with a 321 series while Cornerstone was led by Abe Stangland with a 306 series. Angola beat Garrett 16.5-3.5. Angola was led by Jordan Lively with a 454 series and Garrett was led by Dayton Sweet with a 407 series. DeKalb and Eastside split points at 10-10 but DeKalb won the match on total pins by 14 pins. DeKalb was led by Spencer Crim with a 413 series, and Eastside was led by Matt David with a 415 series. Angola and Lakeland are tied at two wins each.

Mariners hire McClendon SEATTLE (AP) — Lloyd McClendon was hired as manager of the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday, taking over a rebuilding job that Eric Wedge walked away from. McClendon becomes the third manager hired by general manager Jack Zduriencik. Wedge quit at the end of the Mariners’ fourth straight losing season, citing differences with the front office on how to move forward with improving the team. Wedge’s three-year contract expired after the season. The 54-year-old

McClendon is the 16th full-time manager in club history. He takes over a club that went 71-91 last year. He will be formally introduced by the team on Thursday. “I am extremely excited about the opportunity to manage the Seattle Mariners,” McClendon said in a statement. “Seattle has a tremendous group of talented players and the fans and city should be excited about the club’s future. I’m looking for this group to take a big step forward.” Seattle is the fourth club to fill its managerial

vacancy. The Washington Nationals hired Matt Williams to replace Davey Johnson. The Cincinnati Reds, who fired Dusty Baker after a 90-win season, went with pitching coach Bryan Price as their new manager and Detroit chose Brad Ausmus to take over for Jim Leyland — a job McClendon interviewed for. The Chicago Cubs are still looking for a manager. McClendon was the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001-05, going 336-446 during the Pirates’ 20-year stretch of losing seasons.

“You don’t look back at your successes, you don’t look back at your failures. I think you look forward to see how you can get better.” Hazell has already changed quarterbacks, benching fifth-year senior Rob Henry in favor of true freshman Danny Etling, and made an unusual midseason switch from a 4-3 defensive front to a 3-4. He’s plugged true freshmen into the rotations, and on Tuesday, Hazell acknowledged he’s not likely to make many more lineup changes. The schedule won’t help much, either. Iowa can become bowl-eligible with a win at West Lafayette. Purdue then closes out the season at Penn State, where they are 1-6-1 all-time; by hosting Illinois, which has lost 18 straight conference games; and a trip to Indiana, where it will face one of the nation’s highest-scoring teams and an archrival that wants coach Kevin Wilson to finally get his hands on the Old Oaken Bucket. But he’s not changing the plan or the expectations. “The two things I want to see, and I told our football team this on Sunday, is energy and execution. Energy and execution, that’s how I’ll measure the progress over our last four games,” Hazell said. “We’re going to prepare as hard and as well as we have and better in the weeks prior.”



seniors for 45 minutes Sunday, Hazell proclaimed they’re still committed to turning things around — a positive attitude that is rubbing off on the underclassmen — and that he has seen improvement on tape. “We’re better,” he said when asked to compare where the Boilermakers are now with where they were in the season opener. “We’re better than that game. I still think there’s a little bit of confidence that we lack, especially when you’re playing a good team like Ohio State. When those things happen, you’re like, ‘Oh, here we go.’ But we’re better than where we were. Obviously not where we need to be.” Hazell started 1-6 at Kent State before winning 15 of his last 19. In 27 years on the sideline, Hazell has lost at least eight consecutive games in a season five times — a stretch that even includes back-to-back nine-game skids in 1990 and 1991 at Oberlin for 18 consecutive losses. But the last time he endured anything like this came in 2002 when Rutgers finished the season with nine straight losses. So he’s learned how to deal with tough times. “You take each year individually and you analyze it and you try to find ways to get better,” Hazell said.

James scores 35 as Heat beat Raptors


Jennings made his first start for the Pistons in his second game with his new team. He was injured for the first two games of the season, and Detroit looked out of sorts offensively Tuesday. Josh Smith, another new acquisition this season for Detroit, scored 16 points but shot 5 of 16. He went 1 of 6 from beyond the arc. Indiana will try to extend its unbeaten run Wednesday night against Chicago. NOTES: Indiana also started 4-0 in 1989-90, according to STATS. … Detroit’s starting backcourt of Jennings and Chauncey Billups went 8 for 25, including 1 of 9 from 3-point range.

TORONTO (AP) — LeBron James scored a season-high 35 points, Dwyane Wade had 20 and the Miami Heat beat the Toronto Raptors 104-95 on Tuesday for their first road victory in three tries this season. Ray Allen scored 14 points for Miami, which lost at Philadelphia on Oct. 30 and was beaten 101-100 at Brooklyn on Nov. 1. James also had a seasonhigh eight rebounds and eight assists as Miami topped 100 points for the fifth straight game, extending their team-record run to begin the season. With a putback dunk at 2:31 of the first quarter, James became the fifth player in NBA history to score 10 points or

more in 500 consecutive games. A four-time MVP, James joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (with streaks of 787 and 508 games), Michael Jordan (866), Karl Malone (575) and Moses Malone (526) as the only players to accomplish the feat. It was the 162nd time during the streak that James has reached 10 points in the opening quarter. James has reached double figures in every game since being held to eight points at Milwaukee on Jan. 5, 2007. He scored 19 at New Jersey the following night. James has more regularseason games of scoring at least 50 points (nine) than nights where he’s scored less

than 10 (eight). Factor playoff games into the mix, and he’s reached double figures 898 times in 907 career games. The Heat have won 12 straight against the Raptors since a 111-103 road loss on Jan. 27, 2010, when Miami forward Chris Bosh played for Toronto. DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 21 points while Jonas Valanciunas had 18. Rudy Gay had 13 points and 10 rebounds for his second straight double-double. Leading 78-74, Miami took control by opening the fourth with a 12-0 run as Toronto went scoreless for the first 4:28, a drought that ended when Tyler Hansbrough converted a pair of free throws.


SPORTS BRIEFS • Packers QB Rodgers has fractured left collarbone GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he has a fractured left collarbone and he doesn’t know how long he’ll be out. Rodgers offered details of the injury on his weekly radio show on 540-AM ESPN on Tuesday. The 2011 NFL MVP got hurt after getting sacked by Shea McClellin on a third-down play during the Packers’ first series while he was scrambling outside the pocket. He hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder. Rodgers called his injury “significant” and said he was in “some pain.” Rodgers hasn’t missed a game due to injury since Dec. 19, 2010. Seneca Wallace finished 11 for 19 for 114 yards and an interception in the 27-20 loss.

Packers place TE Finley on injured reserve GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is done for the season after the team placed him on injured reserve. General manager Ted Thompson announced the move Tuesday. Finley had to be carried off on a stretcher after suffering a spinal cord contusion while being tackled Oct. 20 against the Browns. Finley has said he plans to return to football. He was having a good year with 25 catches for 300 yards and three touchdowns.

Bears place WR Anderson on injured reserve, waive Minter LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have placed receiver Joe Anderson on injured reserve because of an abdominal and groin injury and waived defensive tackle Zach Minter. Anderson appeared in six games this season and recorded one special teams tackle. He has played in nine games over two seasons with Chicago. An undrafted rookie from Montana State, Minter appeared in two games for the Bears this season.

Kill will remain in booth against Penn State MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota coach Jerry Kill says he will remain in the coaching booth and not return to the sideline this week against Penn State. The Golden Gophers (7-2, 3-2 Big Ten) have won three straight conference games, and Kill says he wants to stick with what’s working. Kill left the team to seek more treatment for his epilepsy a month ago. He returned to watch the game against Northwestern from the booth and has done the same for victories against Nebraska and Indiana. Kill says “I guess I’m the CEO right now.” Defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys has served as the acting head coach on the sideline. Kill says he will head down to the sideline if need be. But right now he feels this arrangement is best for the program.

Union monitoring probe of Dolphins’ harassment MIAMI (AP) — The NFL Players Association said Tuesday that it will insist on a fair investigation for all involved in the Miami Dolphins harassment case. The league is investigating the troubled relationship between Dolphins offensive linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito. Martin left the team last week because of emotional issues, and Incognito was suspended indefinitely Sunday by coach Joe Philbin for his treatment of Martin. “We expect that the NFL and its clubs create a safe and professional workplace for all players, and that owners, executives, coaches and players should set the best standards and examples,” the union said in a statement. “It is the duty of this union to hold the clubs … accountable for safety and professionalism in the workplace. … We will continue to remain in contact with the impacted players, their representatives and player leadership.”

Bayern, Man City advance in Champions League Defending champion Bayern Munich advanced to the second round of the Champions League with a 1-0 win at Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday night, and Manchester City reached the final 16 for the first time by beating CSKA Moscow 5-2. Real Madrid came from behind in a 2-2 tie at Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain rallied for a 1-1 draw at Anderlecht, leaving the Spanish and French clubs on the verge of secondround berths. Mario Mandzukic scored a header in the 65th minute for Group D leader Bayern (4-0), six minutes after entering. In England, Alvaro Negredo scored three goals and Sergio Aguero two for secondplace City (3-1). Manchester United (2-0-2) tied 0-0 at Real Sociedad (0-1-3) after Robin van Persie’s 69th-minute penalty kick hit a post following Markel Bergara’s foul on Ashley Young.







Meth: Not answering the call It’s called the tough call for a reason. It means make a difficult decision. It’s too bad so many of our elected leaders, when asked to make the tough call, would rather put the issue on hold than answer the call. Take Indiana’s Attorney General Greg Zoeller, for example. Late last week, Zoeller took part in a summit in Kendallville with law enforcement officials from Indiana and Ohio regarding the methamphetamine crisis that is plaguing the two states. Methamphetamine is easy to make. It can be MATT made in a two-liter bottle. much anybody can do GETTS Pretty it. And too many people are doing just that. These people are getting high, and they’re getting addicted. So they make more. There’s no need to worry about getting it from a dealer. And that’s what makes meth so insidious. According to the Huffington Post, Indiana had the third-highest total in the country of meth labs, with 1,429 seized by police in 2012. What can The powerful be done about it? In Oregon, pharmaceutical lobby the state stands to lose millions legislature made pseudoif access to pseudoephedrine — the must-have ephedrine is limited, ingredient to manufacture but no one wants to talk meth — about that. available only by prescription. According to the magazine Mother Jones, Oregon has seen a 96 percent drop in its meth lab seizures since the law took effect in 2006. In the year before the law took effect, Oregon spent $580,000 cleaning up meth labs. In 2011, that state spent $43,000 cleaning up labs. Oregon had nine lab cleanups in 2012, according to the Huffington Post. Mississippi passed a similar law, and saw the number of its meth lab seizures drop by 74 percent, the magazine reported. Prior to the meth summit, I asked Zoeller and state Sen. Sue Glick, R-LaGrange, to answer, in a yes-or-no fashion, if they would support making pseudoephedrine available only by prescription in Indiana. A yes-or-no question. Zoeller and Glick both answered as if they were paid by the word. They danced around the issue like they were more interested in trying out for “Dancing with the Stars” instead of governing. Both gave legitimate concerns in their noncommittal responses. Making pseudoephedrine a prescription-only drug would be an incredible inconvenience to law-abiding citizens who use pseudoephedrine for its intended purpose, as a cold medicine. Instead of Grandma and Grandpa going to the counter, showing their identification and getting the relief they need, they would have to get prescriptions from their physician. It’s far from being a best-case solution from that perspective. Both Zoeller and Glick also discussed the concern that if we reduce homemade meth, violent drug cartels would move in to supply the drug to those who are addicted. Again, it’s a real issue to consider. Unfortunately, the drug cartels are already here. Such imported meth wouldn’t contaminate our homes. It wouldn’t expose children to the toxic chemicals involved in making it. It wouldn’t make apartments and homes uninhabitable. Imported meth wouldn’t catch fire and burn up those homes, either. Then there is the powerful pharmaceutical lobby that stands to lose millions if access to pseudoephedrine is limited, but no one wants to talk about that. Yes, making pseudoephedrine available only by prescription would inconvenience people. Yes, drug cartels would increase their presence here. It is a tough call. But it’s one that desperately needs to be made. It’s not simply too bad that no one who could effect change seems willing to take a stand. It’s a tragedy. Every day that passes with elected officials sitting on their hands, more people get addicted, more people learn to make the drug, more money and law enforcement resources are spent cleaning up the mess.

Now vs. then: Who had the better deal? The Carnegie Public Library of Steuben County’s genealogy room is perhaps the most fascinating place in the county. In that room, there are old copies of The Herald Republican on microfilm with its many name and ownership changes, documents, obituaries, stories of Steuben County and its people and places. Apparently, it’s a popular place, as a guest book reveals visitors from across the country seeking details of late family members and bloodlines. Some facts sit in that room and other interesting ones can be found on ingenweb. org/insteuben. That site reveals the ways of the times and what was valued. It reported in 1921 in The Steuben Republican the county school board opposed public dances, as the moral welfare was considered the basis of the argument. Some board members also called for action concerning employment of men “who have the tobacco or pool room habit.” The site features much town news written some 100 years or so ago. Such news had the flavor of sounding like neighbors sitting around the kitchen table sharing shreds about their lives and comings and goings. Some of that included Dr. Wilkinson’s new rubber-tire carriage; the dog poisoner resumed his work in 1893; a Pleasant Lake man, Worthy Tuttle, went to New York City and joined Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show as a musician in the Cowboy Band; a man

was fattening three opossums for Settlers’ Day; an oyster supper was 15 cents in 1902 for Thanksgiving by Ladies Aid and thieves entered a Pleasant Lake man’s cellar and carried away 20 quarts of fruit.

What Others Say Stateless in the Dominican Republic A recent decision by the Constitutional Court in the Dominican Republic effectively clears the way for officials to retroactively strip the citizenship of tens of thousands of Dominicans of Haitian descent. The ruling — that children born to Haitian immigrants are essentially foreigners in the country of their birth — is arbitrary and unjust and could potentially create one of the

largest groups of stateless people in recent years. Until recently, “birthright citizenship” was an established part of Dominican law, meaning that anyone born in the country was automatically eligible to be a citizen. That included children born to Haitian migrants who had come into the country illegally or as guest laborers to work in the Dominican sugar plantations, or to clean houses or to join construction crews. … Theoretically, some of the victims of this unjust new

rule might qualify for Haitian citizenship. But many have never set foot in Haiti and don’t even speak French or Haitian Creole. Some might find that the records needed to prove their eligibility are missing or were destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. The Constitutional Court’s decision — which follows many years of resentment and mistreatment of Haitians, who have come to the Dominican Republic by the thousands to do the country’s hardest

and lowest-paid work — has outraged human rights groups and raised concern in the United Nations. It has needlessly and tragically created a humanitarian crisis where none existed. There is still time, however, for the international community to urge Dominican officials to exercise restraint as they review thousands of birth records. At the very least, they should provide legal status to those they strip of citizenship. Los Angeles Times

No wool in Wool, sheep are missing LONDON (AP) — Wool’s wool is missing. Police in southwest England appealed for help Tuesday in tracking down thieves who made off with 160 sheep from a field near the village of Wool. Police say the sheep were stolen between Saturday and Monday, and that the thieves would have needed a large vehicle to move the woolly haul. Constable Adam Taylor says all of the sheep were electronically tagged. He is urging anyone who has witnessed suspicious activity — or been offered sheep “in unusual circumstances or for very low prices” — to come forward.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Global chemical weapons inspectors will visit the last two unverified Syrian chemical weapons sites as soon as security conditions allow in the midst of an ongoing civil war, a U.N. official said Tuesday. Sigrid Kaag, the head of the joint mission of the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, told the Security Council that the inspectors will check the last two sites as soon as possible. The inspectors last week said they had visited 21 of 23 sites declared by Damascus. “The intent is to visit them in future, subject to security conditions in the country,” she said. The OPCW said last week that Syria had met the Nov. 1 deadline to destroy or “render inoperable” all chemical weapon production facilities and machinery for mixing chemicals into poison gas and filling munitions. Kaag cited the “constructive cooperation of the Syrian authorities” in helping catalogue and open for inspection its chemical weapons sites. Syria is believed to possess around 1,000 metric tons of chemical weapons, including mustard gas and sarin. Damascus already had given preliminary details to the OPCW when it declared it was joining the organization in September. The move warded off possible U.S. military strikes in the aftermath of an Aug. 21 chemical weapon attack on a Damascus suburb. Washington and U.S. allies accuse the Syrian government of being responsible for the attack, while Damascus blames rebels.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford composes himself as he addresses the media at City Hall in Toronto Tuesday. Ford says

he loves his job and will stay on as mayor of Toronto despite admitting for the first time that he smoked crack.

Toronto mayor admits use of crack, but vows to stay TORONTO (AP) — Rob Ford said Tuesday he loves his job and will stay on as mayor of Toronto despite admitting for the first time that he smoked crack. Ford earlier acknowledged he smoked crack “probably a year ago” when he was in a “drunken stupor,” but balked at growing pressure on him to resign. “I was elected to do a job and that’s exactly what I’m going to continue doing,” Ford said. “On Oct. 27 of 2014, I want the people of this great city to decide whether they want Rob Ford to be their mayor.” The allegations that the mayor of Canada’s largest city had been caught on video smoking crack surfaced in news reports in May. Ford initially insisted the video didn’t exist, sidestepped questions about whether he had ever smoked crack and rebuffed growing calls on him to step down. The mayor was forced to

backtrack after police said last week they had obtained a copy of the video in the course of a drug investigation against a friend of Ford’s. “Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford told reporters earlier outside his office. “There have been times when I’ve been in a drunken stupor. That’s why I want to see the tape. I want everyone in the city to see this tape. I don’t even recall there being a tape or video. I want to see the state that I was in.” Police have said the video, which has not been released publicly, does not constitute enough evidence to charge the mayor with a crime. Police spokesman Mark Pugush said Ford’s acknowledgement of crack use will be passed on to investigators. Several Toronto city councilors called on Ford to step down and Canada’s justice minister urged him to get

help. Ford, 44, earlier walked out of his office and asked reporters to ask him the question they first asked him in May. He then acknowledged he smoked crack but said: “Am I an addict? No. Have I tried it, probably in one of my drunken stupors a year ago.” Municipal law makes no provision for the mayor’s forced removal from office unless he’s convicted and jailed for a criminal offense. City Councilor Denzil Minnan-Wong, a member of Ford’s executive committee, said he would put forward a motion asking Ford to take a leave of absence. “My first reaction was ‘Wow’,” Minnan-Wong said. Councilor Jaye Robinson said the mayor needs to step aside and address his problems. “We have become a laughing stock of North America, if not the world,” Robinson said.

for office that he suffered from diabetes. He was treated for a peptic ulcer in 2000, and his presidential campaign said he had surgery under his skull in 2008. Another senior security official in Cairo said Morsi was agitated, and initially refused to put on the prison jumpsuit. He had also refused to wear the prison outfit during the trial. He finally put it on after much discussion, the official said. All security officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak to reporters. The official said he was taken to a prison hospital room with a separate bathroom and a TV, instead of the small cell where he was supposed to go. The Borg el-Arab complex is one of Egypt’s newest prisons. It was built in 2004 and designed as a maximum security facility. The 50-acre compound sits in desert adjoining a road that links Alexandria and the western coastal city of Marsa Matruh. The compound is garrisoned by a special unit of the security forces. Inside there are two sets of buildings; one for detainees who have not been sentenced, and another for inmates who have been convicted and received high sentences, including some on death row. The two units are surrounded by two separate walls, making an escape attempt or an assault difficult. Security officials had expressed fear that radical supporters of Morsi may attempt to break him out of prison, which in part explains their decision to keep him in a maximum security facility. Keeping Morsi in Borg el-Arab also separates him from the Muslim Brotherhood leadership, most of whom are held in another high security prison in Cairo. Morsi’s co-defendants in his trial are among those held in the Cairo prison.

Mortar blast hits Nazis may have seized art Vatican embassy DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A mortar round slammed into a building housing the Vatican’s embassy in the Syrian capital Tuesday, but no injuries were reported, witnesses and a spokesman said. Other foreign diplomatic missions have been struck in the nearly 3-year-old civil war pitting President Bashar Assad’s government against rebels fighting to oust him. But it was unclear if the Vatican’s mission was the target on Tuesday. Opposition fighters frequently fire mortar shells into the capital to undermine the government’s efforts to maintain a semblance of normalcy in its stronghold. Nobody claimed responsibility for the blast, which occurred near the upscale Abu Roummaneh district and damaged the roof. Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, told reporters that the pre-dawn attack caused no casualties and the pope had been informed about it. “Given the hour, there was only material damages, not to people,” Lombardi said. The conflict has cleaved Syria along sectarian lines. Rebels are overwhelmingly

Sunni, while Christians and other minorities have remained neutral, or supported the Assad government, fearing for their fate should Islamic hard-liners seize the country. Each warring party has committed atrocities against other sects. On Tuesday, a Syrian watchdog group estimated that the number of civilians killed during fighting last month in a Christian town north of Damascus was 45. That included six family members shot to death and thrown in a well, who were found by residents. Rebels from three extremist Muslim groups tried to seize the town of Sadad in late October, triggering days of deadly clashes with Assad’s forces which ultimately repelled them. The rebels appear to have targeted Sadad because of its strategic location near the main highway north from Damascus, not because it is overwhelmingly Christian. But extremists among the rebels are hostile to Syria’s many minorities, including Christians, and Syria’s state media reported that rebels vandalized the town’s Saint Theodore Church during the fighting.

AUGSBURG, Germany (AP) — It started with a routine check by German tax inspectors — and resulted in the discovery of an art hoard so vast and spectacular that no one yet knows how the story truly ends. On a high-speed train from Zurich to Munich on Sept. 22, 2010, Germany’s briskly polite officialdom was on the lookout for customs and tax cheats. Thousands of German citizens had bank accounts in Switzerland, many of them undeclared, and the route from Zurich was a prime target for those carrying substantial sums of cash. One elderly man on the train raised their suspicions and prosecutors launched a preliminary tax probe against him. Two years later, in February 2012, the trail led to the man’s apartment

in a wealthy district of Munich. Once inside, inspectors found a far more glittering prize than smuggled cash or evaded taxes: a huge collection of hidden artwork that sheds new light on some of the 20th-century’s master painters and reawakens painful memories of Germany’s Nazi past. The paintings, drawings, engravings, woodcuts and prints numbered more than 1,400 in all and were created by an all-star roster of modern art: Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Oskar Kokoschka, and leading German artists Otto Dix, Max Liebermann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. At least one older work was in the trove: a 16th-century engraving of the Crucifixion by Albrecht Duerer. Some pieces — ones by

Matisse, Chagall, Dix — were previously unknown, not listed in the detailed inventories compiled by art scholars. Investigators’ excitement at the find was tempered by a disturbing question. At least some of the works had apparently been seized by the Nazis — so who were they taken from and who now are their rightful owners? At a news conference Tuesday in Augsburg, Germany, prosecutors wouldn’t identify the elderly suspect, citing tax secrecy laws and the ongoing investigation. They did say he hasn’t asked for the artwork back and that they were not currently in contact with him. Prosecutors are probing whether he improperly acquired the works, but no charges have been filed and prosecutors say there may not be any.



JERUSALEM (AP) — Paula Abdul has moved a Bat Mitzvah ceremony that she’d originally planned to hold at Jerusalem’s Western Wall, Israel’s Tourism Ministry said Tuesday. The normally tireless TV personality came to Israel to connect to Abdul her Jewish roots and for her belated Bat Mitzvah, the coming-of-age ceremony girls typically have at age 12 or 13. But the ministry, which is hosting Abdul, said she made last-minute changes to her packed itinerary because she’s jet-lagged. The ministry says Abdul was planning to hold a high-profile ceremony at the Wall, the holiest place where Jews can pray, but instead had a private weekend affair in the northern town of Safed. Officiating Rabbi Eyal Riess of the Tzfat Kabbalah Center says Abdul wanted to escape the media circus for a more intimate ceremony.


CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi spent his first night in a civilian penitentiary in a hospital room after he complained he wasn’t feeling well, senior security officials said Tuesday. The Interior Ministry denied that the 62-year-old ousted president, who until his first day of trial Monday had been held in a secret military facility, was ill. But it said in a statement on Egypt’s state news agency that Morsi was undergoing medical check-ups, and will be transferred to his regular cell later. Following his dramatic court appearance Monday, Morsi was transferred to a maximum security prison in a remote desert area near Alexandria, Egypt’s second city. It was his first appearance following his July ouster. During the court, Morsi was feisty, speaking loudly to the judges, and proclaimed he was still the president of Egypt. His frequent interruptions and those of his co-defendants forced the judge to adjourn the sessions twice, before scheduling the next hearing on Jan. 8. Morsi had also refused to enter a plea and said his trial was illegitimate. Morsi is accused of incitement to murder his opponents in connection to a bout of violence outside Cairo’s presidential palace when he was in office. Fourteen other Brotherhood members and Islamists are tried in the same case. Morsi was transported in a helicopter from the courtroom in eastern Cairo to Borg el-Arab prison complex, where a special pad had been prepared, the security officials said. Upon arrival to the prison, Morsi complained of high blood pressure and high blood sugar, the officials said. Morsi has been reported to have a number of medical conditions. He told the media when he was running

Absentee father is there for his other kids DEAR ABBY: For 2 1/2 years I have taken care of my daughter without the help of her father. He pays child support only when the courts threaten to throw him in jail, but he never comes to see her. When he does come by, it’s not to see or spend time with her, it’s to try and get sex from me. Sometimes I give in and give it to him as an itch to scratch. He recently got “married” and now has four other children. The last time he was over, I noticed that he has all his children’s initials tattooed on his arm except our daughter’s, and it bothered me. I only want what is best for my little girl, and I have made it clear that if he isn’t a part of her life now, that he needs to stay away until she’s an adult. I don’t want her to be hurt by a part-time or sometimes dad. I guess my question is, is it OK to be angry that he doesn’t recognize her as his child but does his other four? —




DEAR ABBY: I am writing this hoping that anyone who is in a supervisory position at work will see it and think before pressuring employees to buy for their children’s

schools or organizations. This is extortion. I have tried saying, “No, thank you,” but I get such a bad attitude from my supervisor that I end up ordering something. I can’t afford to drop $20 here and there on items I wouldn’t otherwise buy or eat. It’s a lot of money to employees who haven’t had wage or benefit increases in more than four years. PLEASE tell bosses and managers not to solicit sales from employees. It’s tacky! — TURNED OFF DEAR TURNED OFF: I’m happy to get the word out because I agree that the sales tactic your supervisor is using is tacky.

Mixed views on glucosamine, chondroitin people take for granted. Glucosamine and chondroitin are compounds found in healthy cartilage, which is the tough but flexible tissue in our joints. Joints are the places where two (or more) bones meet, but bone doesn’t rub against bone. ASK Instead, in DOCTOR K. most joints it is the cartilage lining one “kissing” Dr. Anthony bone the cartilage the Komaroff lining other. Osteoarthritis involves the breakdown of normal cartilage. So it makes sense that taking supplements of naturally occurring compounds like glucosamine

and chondroitin could help maintain cartilage in people with the condition. Randomized clinical trials have compared each of these two supplements, alone and in combination, against placebo (dummy) pills in people suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip and knee. An analysis of 10 studies that included nearly 4,000 patients did not find much evidence of reduced pain from glucosamine and chondroitin. Some studies found only a temporary benefit, and only among patients with the most pain. On the other hand, there also was no evidence of side effects from these substances. And consider this: When a randomized trial does not find that a treatment produces better symptom relief than a placebo pill, that means that the average person in the study got no benefit from the treatment. However, it is possible that some of the

DEAR DOCTOR K: What’s the verdict on glucosamine and chondroitin? Do they help relieve osteoarthritis pain? DEAR READER: Whether glucosamine and chondroitin pills help osteoarthritis pain has been controversial. As with most medical controversies, there rarely is a verdict that everyone accepts. So I’m not sure there is a verdict yet in this controversy. In fact, I’m going to argue that the controversy may be misguided: It may not be a question of whether these pills help everyone with osteoarthritis or not. There’s no doubt that we need good and better treatments for osteoarthritis. I speak as a sufferer who had a hip replaced because osteoarthritis had destroyed it. Living with arthritis can be challenging, as the pain and stiffness make it difficult to perform daily tasks most

DEAR PO’D: Oh, goodness gracious, yes. And because you don’t want your child to be hurt by this man, I’m advising you to quit being his booty call. There are other ways to scratch an itch. If you continue DEAR seeing him these ABBY under circumstances, you could wind Jeanne Phillips up being the mother of another one of his children, God forbid.

people in the study really did benefit. Over the years, I’ve had patients tell me they have less pain and stiffness when regularly taking these supplements. If they think it helps, I don’t discourage them. If you’re wondering whether you should take them, the answer is, “It depends.” If you have moderate to severe osteoarthritis pain, it’s reasonable to try the glucosamine-chondroitin combination for two to three months. If you find it eases your pain, it’s reasonable to keep using it. If not, you might as well save your money. As always, if you choose to take these or any other alternative treatments, tell your physician. Avoid these supplements if you are allergic to shellfish. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Gunman apparently only wanted to hurt self PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) — A 20-year-old gunman intent on dying fired multiple shots inside New Jersey’s largest shopping mall, trapping hundreds of customers and employees for hours as police scoured stores for the shooter, who was found dead early Tuesday of a self-inflicted wound, authorities said. There were no other injuries. Investigators don’t believe the gunman, identified as 20-year-old Richard Shoop of Teaneck, intended to shoot anyone when he began firing at the ceiling and elsewhere at the Garden State Plaza on Monday night shortly before the mall’s closing time, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said. “We think he went in with the intent that he was not going to come out alive,” Molinelli said. He said Shoop was known to authorities and had had a problem with drugs, but he did not elaborate. The prosecutor said Shoop left an ambiguous note with his family. While Molinelli would not call it a suicide note, he said it did “express that an end is coming. It could have been prison. … It could have been what he did last night. It gave his family reason to reach out to us.” The suspect’s brother, Kevin Shoop told reporters outside their home on a quiet suburban block in Teaneck that he had no advance warning about what Richard intended to do. “He just sadly decided to make an act of — an act of, I guess, self-indulgence — by taking his own life publicly,” Kevin Shoop said. “And it’s a tragedy to us all. And we’re going to

now handle matters and deal with them.” The shooting has left him devastated, he said, calling his brother a great person who was liked by his friends and family. Kevin Shoop said his brother used a weapon that did not belong to him. “As far as anything goes into the drugs or any of the other rumors out there, no comment,” Kevin Shoop said. Chaos erupted shortly before the mall’s 9:30 p.m. closing time when authorities said a man dressed in black and wearing a motorcycle helmet fired six shots. Molinelli said the gun, which was modified to look like an AK-47 assault rifle, belonged to Richard Shoop’s brother, who owned it legally and did not give the shooter permission to take it. Shoop’s body was discovered around 3:20 a.m. Tuesday in a back corridor of the mall, deep within a lower level, in an area that is not accessible to the public, Paramus police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg said. Shoop did not work at the mall, he said, and investigators were still trying to determine why he went there. Madison Barbarini, a close friend of Shoop’s since kindergarten, said he was popular and “would never hurt a fly.” Barbarini said Shoop told her last week he had found a new job. “He told me that he was going to get a new job at this TV place and he was going to make good money,” she said. At Victor’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant in Teaneck, where Shoop worked for several years, owner Dod Geges said


A security guard blocks access to the closed Wesfield Garden State Plaza Tuesday in Paramus, N.J., after a 20-year-old gunman on Monday fired multiple shots inside the Garden State Plaza shopping mall, trapping

Shoop texted him on Friday to say he was running late, then never showed. Geges said in an email Tuesday that he couldn’t imagine Shoop carrying a gun into a mall. “He was always sad if he heard something like that on TV,” Geges said. Barbarini, who graduated from Teaneck High School in 2011 with Shoop, said he was involved in theater and fencing, then attended Bergen Community College. She said he quit college to work full-time at the pizzeria and recently purchased a motorcycle. “He just wanted to be a successful businessman. He wanted to succeed in life,” she said. At the mall Monday night, witnesses said the sound of gunfire sent

customers and employees rushing hysterically for the exits and hiding places at the mall, which remained closed Tuesday. Jessica Stigliano, 21, of Ridgefield, who’d been in the food court, said she had thought, “Not many people run for their life, but that’s what I’m doing right now.” Hundreds of law enforcement officers converged on the 2.2 million-square-foot mall, which was put on lockdown. New Jersey State Police landed a helicopter in the parking lot and SWAT teams with K-9 units initially went through the mall and started evacuating people. Nick Woods was working in the Lego store when a woman ran by shouting that there was a shooting.

hundreds of customers and employees for hours as police scoured stores for the shooter, who was found dead early Tuesday of a self-inflicted wound, authorities said. There were no other injuries.

Woods said his supervisor locked them in a back room, along with a man and a child who ran into the store. When they finally peeked out two hours later, he said they saw police officers standing outside and Woods called 911 to ask that the officers be told they were coming out. He said the emergency operator told him she couldn’t contact individual police officers and that he should walk out with his hands in the air. “I had to go out of the store shouting at the officers with my hands up, and they turned and pointed their guns at me,” Woods said. “It was one of the scariest experiences of my life.” Joel Castaneda, 18, of Englewood, who was

working at the Ann Taylor Loft store, also spent time locked in a back room. He said he heard several loud bangs and thought they were from construction at the mall until he saw people running. He said people rushed into his store and locked themselves in a back room — employees and customers alike — where they pulled out cellphones to try to get news or reach loved ones. Early Tuesday, families were being escorted by police to a Chili’s restaurant on the outskirts of the mall area to be reunited with others who had been in the mall for hours. The mall, which has more than 270 stores, is located about 15 miles northwest of Manhattan.

Canadian wants to go after mass murderer Kony KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Can you crowd-fund the hunt for a war criminal on the run deep in Africa’s jungles? A Canadian adventurer with experiences in Afghanistan and Somalia wants to do just that: raise funds and take a small band of former soldiers to find Joseph Kony. Robert Young Pelton, whose plan has already drawn criticism from a pair of Africa experts, is the latest to join a line of private individuals and aid groups who are trying to corner the alleged mass murderer and members of

his Lord’s Resistance Army. Kony remains elusive despite the deployment by President Barack Obama in late 2011 of 100 U.S. special forces to aid the hunt — which is mostly carried out by Ugandan troops — and the efforts by myriad private groups. Among those efforts: — Invisible Children, an American aid group, created a web video seen by more than 100 million people last year that made Kony a family dinner topic and “introduce new audiences to the conflict, and inspire global action.” — The Bridgeway

Foundation, a Houstonbased charity, hired a private company two years ago that specializes in military and law enforcement training to teach child hostage rescue techniques to the Ugandan troops tracking Kony. With support from the deep-pocketed Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Bridgeway pays an aviation company to fly a Cessna Caravan airplane and a Bell helicopter that are used to extract LRA defectors, transport injured people and broadcast anti-Kony messages from loudspeakers.

— Invisible Children and Resolve, another aid group, operate a website called the LRA Crisis Tracker that collects information on LRA attacks — often radioed in by villagers — in Central African Republic, Congo, South Sudan and Sudan. The site allows U.S. military officials or aid workers to see where the LRA is concentrating its attacks. The U.S. State Department said non-governmental groups and foundations “have played a critical role in bringing the LRA’s atrocities to the world’s attention and continue to

play an important role … to end those atrocities.” But while the U.S. military’s Africa Command and the State Department both said they “appreciate the passion and commitment of Americans and citizens around the world to help the communities terrorized by the LRA,” neither would comment on Pelton’s effort. Pelton, the author of “The World’s Most Dangerous Places,” says he has done work for U.S. military commanders in Afghanistan, and that he excels at finding people who don’t want to be found. If

his plan is funded, he would start looking for Kony, who is likely in the Central African Republic, early next year, he said. “I am actually walking through the jungle myself with a stalwart band of like-minded people with all the right skills,” Pelton said by telephone, adding that his group won’t be looking to kill anyone and intends to comply with local laws. “I’m not Wyatt Earp,” he insisted. “I’m not gathering a posse to chase down Kony for the money. I’m trying to see if I can create a system that works.”
