Electricity rates rising in Garrett BY SUE CARPENTER

GARRETT — Garrett electric utility users will see an increase in rates beginning in 2014. Consultant Rod Sibery of Spectrum Engineering presented findings from a cost-of-service study to the Garrett Common Council Tuesday. Sibery said he used the 12 months from June 1, 2012,

through May 31, 2013, as a test year for the study. He presented figures showing the city’s revenue requirement for the utility at $8.98 million for the period, with operating revenues at $7.31 million, resulting in a deficit of $1.67 million. The last study was conducted in 1981, Sibery said. Of the revenue requirements, 72 percent goes to purchase power through Indiana Michigan Power

Co., with the remainder for meter reading, substation and infrastructure maintenance, truck and equipment replacement and other capital improvement costs. Sibery said the average Garrett resident using 1,000 kilowatthours per month would see an increase of $22.97 per month, or 30 percent. Customers using 500 kilowatt-hours would see a $6.06 per month increase or a 13 percent

Man fatally shot near Fort Wayne school FORT WAYNE (AP) — A man has been found fatally shot across the street from a Fort Wayne high school an hour after dismissal. The shooting was reported about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday outside Premium Cuts Barbershop, across the street from South Side High School. Some students who were leaving the school at the time were ushered away from the crime scene. Fort Wayne Community Schools spokeswoman Krista Stockman says the school was placed on lockdown until students involved in after-school activities were sent home. The school day had ended at 2:30 p.m.

Mobile home blaze claims woman’s life

Pragmatic strategy fuels election wins WASHINGTON (AP) — Electability and pragmatism won. Ideology and rigidity lost. In Democratic-leaning New Jersey, voters gave Republican Chris Christie a second term and rewarded him for his bipartisan, get-it-done, inclusive pitch. In swing state Virginia, voters narrowly rejected Republican Ken Cuccinelli’s uncompromising, conservative approach. If there’s a lesson from Tuesday’s off-year elections, it might be that during a time of deep divisions within the Republican Party, staunchly conservative GOP candidates who press ideological positions have difficulty winning general elections in competitive states. Candidates with mainstream appeal like Christie in New Jersey and Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia can overcome obstacles that might trip up others. Christie, in a victory speech aimed at national Republicans, said Americans “angry with their dysfunctional government in Washington” could look to his state as a model for getting things done. “I know that if we can do this in Trenton, New Jersey, maybe the folks in Washington, D.C., should tune in their TVs right now,” Christie said. “See how it’s done.” Christie trounced his Democratic opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono, offering a template for Republicans who want to win and attract a broad coalition of voters. His re-election, the largest by a Republican governor in New Jersey since 1985, could help him make a case for governing as a conservative without ceding the political middle ahead of a possible presidential bid. In Virginia, McAuliffe held off a late charge by Cuccinelli in a polarizing campaign that exposed liabilities that could drag down both parties next year: President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul for Democrats and a partial government shutdown for Republicans. McAuliffe is a

WASHINGTON (AP) — Obama administration officials are facing mounting questions about whether they cut corners on security testing while rushing to meet a self-imposed deadline to launch online health insurance markets. Documents show that the part of that consumers interact with directly received only a temporary six-month security certification because it had not been fully tested before Oct. 1, when the website went live. It’s also the part of the system that stores personal information. The administration insists the trouble-prone website is secure, but technicians had to scramble to make a software fix earlier this week after learning that a North Carolina man tried to log on and got a South Carolina man’s personal information. A serious security breach would be an unwelcome game-changer for an administration striving to turn the corner on technical problems that have inconvenienced millions of consumers and embarrassed the White House. Two computer security experts

longtime friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, giving the former secretary of state an important ally should she seek the White House again. In Republican-friendly Alabama, Bradley Byrne, a lawyer backed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, defeated tea party-backed candidate Dean Young in a special GOP primary to succeed retiring Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Ala. Byrne will be the heavy favorite in December to hold onto the congressional seat and gives business groups a victory over the tea party. Far from the intensity of a presidential campaign, the low-turnout elections don’t offer a greater meaning into the nation’s political psyche. But Virginia and New Jersey often give parties clues to the electorate’s mood heading into congressional elections. The backdrop was a partial government shutdown triggered partly by tea party demands and a clunky rollout by the Obama administration of the health care law.

ORLAND — A fire east of Lake Gage took the life of a local woman at about 3 p.m. Wednesday, officials report. The blaze in a mobile home in the 5200 block of North C.R. 550W in Millgrove Township on property owned by Stephen Bachelor claimed the life of Sandra (Hart) Campbell, 73, Angola. The fire broke out at about 2:30 p.m., said Sheriff Tim Troyer. Fire departments from Orland and Fremont were dispatched initially, along with sheriff’s deputies. When emergency crews arrived, they found the mobile home completely engulfed in flames. Once it was extinguished, firefighters found Campbell inside the structure. Steuben County Coroner Bill Harter ruled the cause of death as smoke inhalation. As of Wednesday evening, officials had yet to determine an exact cause of the fire, though it has been ruled accidental. “We’re working in conjunction with the state fire marshal and the coroner, of course,” Troyer said. “They’ve got some ideas of the general area of the home where they think it started.” Campbell was found in the rear of the mobile home, Troyer said. She lived with family members but was home alone at the time of the fire. It is believed that Campbell lived alone. She was home alone at the time. Angola firefighters assisted in the investigation.

Truck theft nets three years of probation AUBURN — An Ohio man who stole a truck and cut it into pieces received three years of probation and must perform 100 hours of community service work, Judge Monte Brown ordered Wednesday. Billy Maag of Defiance pleaded guilty to auto theft, a Class D felony, as part of a plea agreement filed in DeKalb Superior Court II. The agreement, which Brown accepted, called for

a fixed sentence of three years, all suspended, and probation. Maag also was fined $10,000, which will be suspended if he pays restitution in full. Brown entered a restitution order totaling $23,700. That includes $19,700 for the truck and $4,000 for tools that the owner of the truck said were on the vehicle at the time of the theft. Brown noted that after the theft, the truck was

“cut up” and “made to disappear.” As part of the plea agreement, a related charge of burglary, a Class C felony, was dismissed. Also in Superior Court II Wednesday, Lucas Sutton of the 0100 block of C.R. 70, LaOtto, received two 1 1/2-year sentences, all suspended except 90 days, for possession of methamphetamine and possession of precursors, both Class D felonies. The sentences

will be served at the same time and may be served on community corrections if he qualifies. He must perform 100 hours of community service work and pay court costs. As part of Sutton’s plea agreement, the court dismissed charges against him of maintaining a common nuisance, a Class D felony, and possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, both Class A misdemeanors.

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) — The withdrawing U.S. military is destroying most of the equipment it is leaving behind in Afghanistan after 13 years of war, selling the scrap for millions of dollars to those willing to buy it. The policy stands in stark contrast to the Americans’ withdrawal from Iraq, when they donated or sold still-usable items worth about $100 million. The equipment is being trashed, U.S. officials say, because of fears that anything left behind in Afghanistan could fall into the hands of insurgents and used to make bombs.

Leaving it behind also saves the U.S. billions of dollars in transportation costs. Afghans are angry at the policy, arguing that even furniture and appliances that could improve their lives is being turned into useless junk. “They use everything while they are here, and then they give it to us after breaking it,” said Mohammed Qasim, a junk dealer in the volatile southern province of Kandahar. He gestured toward the large yellow frame of a gutted generator, saying it would have been more useful in somebody’s home, given the lack of electricity in the area.

NEW YORK (AP) — There weren’t any major economic developments or blockbuster earnings. But that didn’t stop investors from pushing the Dow Jones industrial average to another record Wednesday. Instead, investors focused on the big economic news yet to come this week — third-quarter U.S. economic growth on Thursday and the October jobs report Friday. Both reports could signal how much longer the Federal Reserve will continue its $85 billion a month in bond purchases. That program has held down interest rates, kept bond yields low and made stocks more attractive for investors. The Dow notched its 33rd record close for the year, rising to 15,746.88 with some help from Microsoft, which rose after analysts at Nomura said investors should focus on how the company’s fortunes could improve once it picks a replacement for CEO Steve Ballmer. Microsoft shares gained $1.54, or 4.2 percent, to close at $38.18 after the report from Nomura, which also raised its price target for the company. Other indexes also gained, but not as much. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index also went up, but not quite enough to set another record. The Nasdaq composite and the Russell 2000, an index of small-company stocks, edged lower. The patchy performance of the overall market suggests that investors may be getting wary of stocks after this year’s strong gains, said Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ. Stovall said he did not think the market’s advance was in danger of being derailed, but said “investors are still a little bit nervous.” The Dow climbed 128.66 points, or 0.8 percent. The S&P 500 index rose 7.52, or 0.4 percent, to 1,770.49, just one point below its all-time high set Oct. 29. It’s up 24 percent so far this year. The Nasdaq composite fell 7.92 points, or 0.2 percent, to 3,931.95.

Public must police erosion A recent Evansville case reminds us how important it is to be watchful of construction sites and runoff. State regulators ordered a southwestern Indiana developer to halt work on part of a housing subdivision because construction runoff has damaged a stream and wetland area, said a news story distributed by the Associated Press. Too many times in northeast Indiana we have seen instances where construction projects great and small have lacked proper measures to contain soil on a job site. And if a rainfall like we experienced last “Too many times week comes we have seen rolling through, soil can go damage done to washing away to our streams, our lakes and rivers, wetlands and lakes in nothing takes almost an instant. place, or erosion Too many control measures times we have seen our are put into place waterways turned milk after the fact.” chocolate brown by careless contractors. Projects will lack silt fencing or straw bale barriers intended to keep soil on a job site. Once it ends up in a lake, it is difficult to remove. The same holds true for rivers and streams, which carry the sediment and pollution that may be attached to soil particles downstream. Too many times we have seen damage done to our lakes and nothing takes place, or erosion control measures are put into place after the fact. In the Evansville case, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management and the Army Corps of Engineers have ordered Dan Buck of Dan Buck Homes Inc. to either restore disturbed waterways or receive permits for the damage. Indiana has also ordered Buck to cease construction work in the immediate stream and wetland area of the development. Unfortunately, in Indiana we don’t have runoff police. And we don’t have many teeth when it comes to enforcing erosion laws. In the Evansville case, the state became involved after a neighbor complained dirt and debris from the subdivision’s construction had washed onto her property and damaged a private lake. Resident Barbara Bolin told the Evansville Courier & Press the lake “looks like a cappuccino now” and is filled with debris. Does that sound familiar? In this part of the state, a construction project often does not need permits when only earth work is taking place. Consequently, a community can end up with a large project where earth moving takes place unchecked. Many contractors, especially those from states where a variety of local agencies enforce erosion control laws, will make sure the proper erosion control tools are used. Others will not. Because of the lack of enforcement, the public has to be vigilant when it comes to reporting erosion problems from construction sites. Call your local drainage board. Call your local plan commission. Call the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Call IDEM. Until the Legislature puts some actual teeth in Indiana’s erosion control law, it is up to the public to protect our precious water resources.

Now is an exciting time for type 2 diabetes research I am working from Boston this week, filling in as best I can for our daughter, Dorothy, a marine biologist who is working in Stockholm, Sweden, this week. My main job is being GRACE Mormor (Norwegian for “mother’s HOUSHOLDER mother”) to Jane, 2, and Nora, 8 months. Dorothy and Simon Dankel live and work in Bergen. But this year they are in the U.S. for Simon’s work at The Joslin Diabetes Center, a Harvard affiliate. Every morning Simon bikes to work with Jane in the bike seat behind him. He drops her off at a Montessori school and picks her up at 5 p.m. on his way home. Tuesday, while Nora took her morning nap, I opened my email and saw a message reminding me that November is American Diabetes Month. The press release from an organization called Healthyroads said, “Chances are that you or someone close to you has diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in nine U.S. adults has diabetes … Healthyroads urges everyone to be aware of diabetes’ warning signs and take steps to prevent type 2 diabetes. While symptoms vary by person, some common signs of diabetes include urinating often; excessive thirst; excessive hunger; unusual tiredness; blurry vision.” Hmmm, I thought, sounds like me — but the causes probably are too much coffee, being a Mormor for active granddaughters and not being able to find my glasses. The press release continued, “If you have these symptoms, go to your doctor and get your blood sugar tested.”

A few weeks ago I had the regular blood tests and everything looked great … well, OK, anyway. The press released continued, “If you have a family history of type 2 diabetes or have prediabetes, here are three tips to help you prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.” 1. Get physically active for at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week. For motivation, ask a friend to join you. 2. Lose weight. If you’re overweight, losing five to seven percent of your body weight can help reduce your risk. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, five percent of your body weight is 10 pounds. Talk to your doctor or a health coach about strategies to lose weight. 3. Eat and drink healthy. Choose water over sugary drinks, and eat smaller portions. Those tips are similar to Simon’s basic advice for decreasing the chance of developing type 2 diabetes: 1. Base your meals on whole, unrefined ingredients, such as fresh vegetables and fruits, fresh meats and fish, and whole grain products. 2. Avoid white flour and sugar. 3. Consume quality fats such as olive oil, canola oil, butter and coconut oil to ensure good hunger control and optimal fat burning. 4. Eat more eggs. (Simon believes that for most people the cholesterol in food is not harmful. Egg yolk provides many important nutrients, such as Vitamin D.) Simon advises everyone to consult with a doctor, but he believes that improving one’s dietary habits and level of physical activity will reduce or even remove the need for medication. Simon’s team is focusing on the genetics behind type 2 diabetes. New research shows: • The “bad” bacteria from the gut of a mouse with diabetes can be transferred to a healthy mouse’s gut … and cause type 2 diabetes. • Fat cells can turn into energy burning, muscle-like cells called “brown fat” cells.


Simon Dankel takes his daughter Jane, 2, to her Montessori school on his way to work at the The Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.

If you live in a very cold climate, keep your house very cold and/or exercise, you increase your “brown fat” cells. • “Brown fat” cells provide protection from type 2 diabetes. • The brain is a key to health. For example, people’s brains are genetically pre-disposed to give signals that a person is “full” and should stop eating. The brains of people with type 2 diabetes may not be providing the proper signals to the body’s organs. • Genetics and the mother’s diet during pregnancy can influence the brain’s wiring regarding these signals. But don’t let your mother’s diet or “bad genes” discourage you. Research indicates that enjoying wholesome food, an active lifestyle and quality sleep may prevent, postpone or reverse type 2 diabetes in spite of those pesky genes.

Police chief: Concerned citizens can help fight meth “Let’s be honest. Drug abuse is not a law enforcement problem, it’s a societal problem.” That’s how Kendallville Police Chief Rob Wiley introduced Tuesday night’s town hall meeting on the drug problem plaguing the community. “When we come in contact with individuals with drug problems a lot of things have already happened in their lives,” he told about 50 people attending the one-hour session. “Let’s be honest again. There is no magic solution.” There is hope if citizens are serious about combating the illegal use and sales of drugs and the crimes that are caused by drug abuse. Citizens can help law enforcement by reporting suspicious activity. “Don’t be afraid to call, and don’t think it’s probably not something to report,” Wiley said. Kendallville police officer Doug Davis, the police department’s methamphetamine lab cleanup specialist, and Noble County chief deputy prosecutor James Mowry joined Wiley to

emphasize the importance of tips to police about suspicious drug activity. In a 34-page publication “Let’s All Work to Fight Drug Abuse” provided by the Kendallville Police Department, Wiley states: “For us to make any significant impact on drug and alcohol abuse it will take a cooperative effort between law enforcement, families, schools and treatment programs.” Wiley described how a concerned citizen’s tip led to police shutting down one of the largest meth manufacturing operations ever seen in Kendallville. On July 30 the Indiana Multi Agency Group Enforcement Drug Task Force raided a house in the 400 block of Pleasant Street, and arrested Heath A. Smith, 34, of Kendallville on felony drug charges. Police called him “the General” because he was in charge of the meth production business and the decision-making process. Smith was found guilty and sentenced to 20 years in prison. This criminal operation would not have been closed

down without the help of information from the public, according to Wiley. The discussion turned to methamphetINSIDE amine. Citing COMMENT 2012 national statistics, Wiley said Dennis Nartker an estimated 4.2 million Americans or 4 percent of the population say they have tried meth. Why meth? It’s easy to make with household ingredients. It used to be when meth cooks had to use anhydrous ammonia and make meth on stoves, the fumes could be detected a block away. Today meth cooks use the one-pot method, manufacturing meth in plastic soft drink containers. The new recipe allows them to make meth in cars and the waste products are thrown out along the roadsides.

In February 2012 the largest meth bust in Mexico’s history happened on a ranch near Guadalajara. Row after row of powder-filled barrels held 15 tons of meth, adding up to 13 million doses worth $4 billion on the streets. Possible signs of meth lab activity are strong chemical odors, a large number of cold medicines and household chemicals like drain opener, lye and paint thinner, rubber tubing and plastic bottles. This trash contains dangerous waste chemicals. Anyone finding meth trash should not touch it but call police. Meth cooks often operate in abandoned buildings. Anyone observing windows that are always covered, frequent late-night activity and occupants who are secretive and behave strangely should call police. Keeping people out of the drug culture is the key, according to Wiley. DENNIS NARTKER is a reporter for The News Sun. He can be reached at

Purdue honors author Daniels slammed WEST LAFAYETTE, (AP) — The works of liberal historian Howard Zinn were honored Tuesday at Purdue University, whose president denounced Zinn’s work as “truly execrable” while serving as governor. More than 100 people gathered for a “read-in” to celebrate the works by Zinn and other controversial authors. Speakers included “Lies My Teacher Told Me” author James Loewen and Anthony Arnove, who co-edited with Zinn “A People’s History of the

United States,” the Journal & Courier reported. Purdue President Mitch Daniels drew fire over the summer when The Associated Press reported that as governor, Daniels had sought assurances that Zinn’s work wasn’t being used in Indiana K-12 classrooms or counted toward continuing education credit for teachers. In a Feb. 9, 2010 email to staff, Daniels called Zinn’s 1980 history book “a truly execrable, anti-factual piece of disinformation that

Chris Hiatt, who led opposition to the referendum as a member of the Citizens of Delaware County For Good Government, said in a statement sent Tuesday night that the vote “was the voice of the electorate and the taxpayers of this community.” “We need to hold the school board and administrators accountable,” he said, adding that they need to re-examine “their budget to make the cuts to keep the buses running.” Jim Arnold, another vocal opponent of the referendum, said he never believed the district was going to end its school bus service.

Well, I am very sad to say it won’t.” Feick said that while the referendum’s opponents have maintained that the district’s buses will continue running after this school year that won’t be the case. Representatives for M&M Bus Company said the business, which provides 74 buses and drivers for about 4,000 of the district’s students, will shut down before the 2014-15 school year without action to fund

MUNCIE (AP) — A central Indiana school board member said she’s “absolutely devastated” voters rejected a property tax increase intended to keep school buses running in the district after this school year. The Muncie Community Schools’ referendum was opposed by nearly 54 percent of residents who voted in Tuesday’s election, which saw a voter turnout of only about 16 percent. The referendum called for a property tax increase that would have collected about $3.3 million for the Muncie school district. District officials said they needed the tax increase to keep operating buses for

misstates American history on every page.” Zinn’s book addresses American history from the viewpoint of those whose plights he said were often omitted from most history textbooks. It has been criticized by many conservatives and scholars and characterized by historian Eugene D. Genovese as “incoherent left-wing sloganizing.” Arnove said Zinn’s work inspired millions of people to think about history in a different way.

sold to another utility, Sibery said. The proposed rates would line up with the current I&M purchase power agreement. Council members said they were not excited about another utility rate increase, but all acknowledged the need. Amanda Charles said the $23 increase on top of other recent increases all adds up. Brad Stump said he is happy the council members understand the need for the rate hike, no matter how unpopular. “We all say we hate this,” Stump said. “The deficit has been going on for many years. Most citizens don’t realize taxes collected do not pay for any utilities — they live and die by the rates they collect.” Charles asked for assurance the city would not be facing similar rate

increases in two years. City attorney Dan Brinkerhoff said the wastewater utility rate ordinance includes language requiring the rates to be reviewed on an annual basis, and he said the same would be done for the electric rates. “I hope you and your successors adopt that philosophy, and we won’t have to do this again,” Brinkerhoff said of the sizable increase. A public hearing on the proposed rates will be scheduled in November with hopes of introducing the ordinance at a December meeting. Mayor Tonya Hoeffel encouraged anyone with questions to attend the meeting. In other business Tuesday, the council approved a confirming resolution to grant an eight-year tax abatement to F & H Associates, Walt Fuller, for real estate

improvements at Adventure Homes. Ken McCrory, director of the DeKalb County Economic Development Partnership, summarized the project. It would add 18,180 square feet to the north and east ends of the existing Adventure Homes building on Fuller Drive in Garrett’s Industrial Park. The $375,000 in improvements would provide room to expand the industry’s drywall operation at the site. An additional 25 jobs would be created over the next three years, McCrory said. The tax reduction would not reduce any current taxes paid or new equipment purchases, he said. The council also introduced and adopted an ordinance adjusting wages for police officers working in the Operation Pullover Seat Belt Enforcement Program to $35 per hour.

interviewed by The Associated Press said that clearly the better option would have been to complete testing. “The best scenario is to have done end-to-end testing,” said Lisa Gallagher, vice president of technology solutions for the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, a medical technology nonprofit. That it wasn’t done “would cause me some mild concern,” she continued, adding she would advise a relative or close friend to wait until the website is stabilized before

Payton served in the George W. Bush administration and has been consulted by congressional Republicans but says she has no partisan agenda on the health care law.

Komets lose to IceMen, 6-3

EVANSVILLE — The Fort Wayne Komets coughed up a 3-1 lead and were taken to school in a 6-3 loss to the host Evansville IceMen in a rare Wednesday morning game. The game started at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. A crowd of 5,266 included Evansvillearea elementary students as part of “education day.” The Komets (2-3-0-2) took a 3-1 lead midway through the second period on two power-play goals by Mickey Lang and an even-strength tally by Scott Fleming. Defenseman Jace Coyle had three assists for Fort Wayne. The IceMen (5-1-0-0) rallied with five unanswered goals — four in the third period. Matt Krug’s goal with 12:43 to play proved to be the game-winner. The Komets were outshot 29-24. Goalie Cody Reichard made 23 saves. Fort Wayne hosts Wheeling at 8 p.m. Saturday.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Luis Scola, Donald Sloan and Lance Stephenson accounted for all the points in a decisive 12-2 run, thwarting a late charge by the Chicago Bulls and sending the Indiana Pacers, the NBA’s last unbeaten team, to an 97-80 victory Wednesday night. The Pacers are 5-0 for the first time since 1971-72. Paul George had 21 points and six rebounds to lead Indiana, while David West had a season-high 17 points and 13 rebounds. Luol Deng and Derrick Rose scored 17 points each to lead Chicago (1-3). Rose scored only three points in the second half. For three quarters, it was topsy-turvy. Then, with Chicago leading 67-65 with 8:38 left, things changed quickly. Sloan hit a 17-footer to tie the score. Stephenson gave Indiana the lead with a 3-pointer. Scola

followed that with consecutive baskets and Stephenson closed the run with another 3 to make it 77-69. The Bulls never seriously challenged again.

After missing all seven shots he took in the first half, Stephenson finished with 15 points — all but three coming in the final 12 minutes of a game that looked

more like a 15-round title fight. Bodies crashed hard to the court all night, and the game got progressively more physical. It took a toll. Pacers backup center Ian Mahinmi left late in the third quarter with a sprained left ankle and did not return. Chicago guard Kirk Hinrich was called for a flagrant foul in the fourth. There was a resounding thud in the arena when Joakim Noah of the Bulls crashed hard to the court trying to protect his own basket late in the fourth. Until the final stretch, neither team could get the upper hand in this defensive slugfest. Indiana led 25-19 after one quarter, trailed 43-37 at halftime and then looked like they might pull away in the third after opening the quarter on a 10-2 run to reclaim the lead. The Pacers followed that spurt with a 9-2 run that ended with George’s 3-pointer to make 56-51. Sloan’s 3 with 1:12 left in the third extended the margin to 63-55. Hinrich answered with a 3, and then George fouled Deng on an 11-footer. Before Deng could finish the three-point play, Pacers coach Frank Vogel drew a technical. Chicago made both free throws, trimming the deficit to 63-62.

Mable leads Knights’ attack BY JAMES FISHER

KENDALLVILLE — Brandon Mable has a way of diving in and getting the job done. With East Noble locked in a scoreless duel against unbeaten Leo in the second round of sectional football play on Friday, the East Noble senior charged around the right corner of the Leo line and dove into the path of the ball just inches off the foot of the Leo punter. The turn of events set the Knights up for the team’s only touchdown of the game. A few plays later, Mable pushed his way into the end zone. East Noble (9-2) never trailed, claiming a 10-7 win in the lowestscoring game for either team this season and sending the squad into Friday’s Class 4A sectional championship game against Fort Wayne Bishop Dwenger (8-3).

Penchant for comebacks boost Colts INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck stays confident and calm around his teammates. Players and coaches see it in the huddle every day at practice and even when things look especially bleak for the Colts on game days. Teammates typically respond by digging down, digging in and overcoming the long odds. Indianapolis knew exactly what it was doing when it selected Luck ahead of Robert Griffin III in the 2012 draft, adding the most polished college quarterback since Peyton Manning to a locker room full of blue-collar veterans who didn’t have the patience to rebuild. They wanted to win right away, and the addition of Luck has turned them into the Comeback Colts. “We have a young team that bought in completely and sold out for a cause, so, honestly, we don’t know any better,” NFL sacks leader Robert Mathis said Wednesday when asked why Indianapolis has been so resilient over the last two seasons. “We just keep swinging and, hopefully, you get that knockout punch.” Lately, nobody has done a

better job of landing late jabs than Luck & Co. In 24 regular-season games, Luck has produced 10 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter — more than any NFL player in his first two seasons since 1970 and he still has eight games to add to that total. He is 24. Indy (6-2) has continued to win despite losing coach Chuck Pagano for 12 games because of leukemia last year, despite opening this season with low outside expectations and despite their divorce with Manning, making a seamless transition from one comeback artist to another. Most teams spend years trying to find the right combinations and the right replacements, but the Colts did it almost instantaneously. “If coach didn’t use his situation as an excuse last year, what do we have to lean on to not get the job done this year?” Mathis said. The Colts have already beaten two of the NFC favorites, handed Seattle and Denver their only losses, taken down the league’s No. 1 offense and the No. 1 defense. They’ve come from

Stevens wins first game with Celtics BOSTON (AP) — Brandon Bass scored 20 points and Jeff Green added 18 to lead the Boston Celtics to their first win of the season, 97-87 over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night. The game reunited new Celtics coach Brad Stevens with Gordon Hayward, the Butler star who took the Bulldogs to the NCAA championship game against Duke and just missed a shot from inside half court that would have won it. Hayward had 28 points and nine rebounds for Utah (0-5), one of the last two winless teams in the NBA this season. The attendance of 17,130 was about 1,500 fans short of a sellout, ending a streak of 289 games dating to the

end of the 2006-07 season. That was the last game before the Celtics (1-4) brought in Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to join Paul Pierce for a New Big 3 that won the franchise’s record 17th NBA championship. Derrick Favors scored 10 points with 14 rebounds and Enes Kanter scored 22 with eight boards for the Jazz, who open a season with five straight losses for the first time since 1974, when they were still in New Orleans. Gerald Wallace had nine points and nine rebounds for Boston, which led by as many as 25 points in the third quarter before Utah scored 17 of the first 20 in the fourth to cut a 22-point deficit into single digits.

gave Indy 11 postseason appearances in 12 years. But it’s the Colts’ propensity for late-game comebacks that has garnered the most attention. The run began in early October 2012 when Indy erased an 18-point halftime deficit against Green Bay to win one for Pagano, who was undergoing chemotherapy at a nearby hospital. Three weeks later, Luck did it again at Tennessee, driving the Colts to a tying score with 3:24 left in regulation and then giving Indy its only lead when Vick Ballard scored a diving, twisting touchdown in overtime. Then at Detroit in December, Luck led the Colts to two touchdowns in the final 2:39 including the 14-yard TD pass to Donnie Avery as time expired. It’s been more of the same this year.

After scoring the final 11 points to beat Seattle 34-28 on Oct. 6, Luck went back to work Sunday night, throwing three TD passes to T.Y. Hilton in an 11-minute span to turn a 24-6 deficit into a 27-24 victory at Houston. The victory put Indy in firm control of the AFC South with a two-game lead over Tennessee, a four-game lead over the Texans and a 2-0 record in division games — both on the road. “We’ve got a great group of older guys who have figured it out and some superstar who don’t act like it,” said Adam Vinatieri, who owns four Super Bowl rings. “It does feel different because the young guys are stepping up and keeping us rolling.” Yet in their first game in 15 years without either Reggie Wayne or Marvin Harrison on the field, the Colts still won.

Jimmie Johnson dominates AAA Texas 500; credits test sessions two weeks prior to race for team’s success


Harold Hinson for Chevrolet

Johnson said that testing at Texas two weeks earlier helped the team with the balance of the No. 48.

blew a right-front tire, I’d be nervous coming back,” Knaus said. “So that had to have been looming over them.” Knaus said he believes his No. 48 team also came out ahead in a test session last week at Homestead-Miami Speedway, in which teams prepared for the season-ending Ford 400. “Quite honestly, based on what I saw at Homestead, they’re probably pretty nervous about that same thing happening there,” he said. Knaus said there were several things learned at the Texas test, which was rained out and then rescheduled, that helped his team score its first victory on a 1.5-mile track this year. “I think it was very beneficial for us,” he said. “We were able to really kind of break down what the race car was doing. Jimmie was able to go out there and kind of explore a little bit and find the nuances of the race track in kind of a more calm environment.

“I think it paid huge dividends for us from a lot of different levels, and it was good.” Kenseth shouldered much of the blame for his team’s inability to come up with a winning setup at Texas, which historically has been one of his best tracks. “We’re just a little off,” he said. “I just couldn’t help [the crew] enough to give them the information they needed to get in the car what I needed to run a little bit better. “It’s all on me. We just worked hard that first [Texas] race, came and tested, worked hard through all the practice sessions, threw a lot of stuff at it and just never had it quite good enough.” But Kenseth said Johnson’s points lead can be overcome. “It’s not insurmountable,” he said. “It’s still in your hands. The math works out if you win the last two races. “If we go out there and can outrun everybody for two weeks, then it’s ours.”


Martin Truex Jr. signs 2014 Sprint Cup sponsor deal with Furniture Row Racing The news of Martin Truex Jr.’s loss of sponsorship from NAPA Auto Parts after his Michael Waltrip Racing team’s involvement in the race-altering scandal at Richmond in September couldn’t have come at a worse time for the veteran Sprint Cup driver. By early fall, most team and sponsor deals for the upcoming season are already in place, and the looming shutdown of his No. 56 team could have put him without a quality ride for the 2014 season. But Kurt Busch’s surprise departure from the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Chevrolet team opened the door for Truex to take over as driver for that team, which, despite its single-car status, has proven that it’s a legitimate Chase contender. Truex and Furniture Row made the official announcement of their pairing last week at Texas Motor Speedway. “As unlucky as I got at Richmond a month or two ago, I got just as lucky when this deal turned up,” Truex said. “What can you say? I guess all things happen for a reason; hopefully all this happened for a reason, and we will be able to do some great things together.” He said there were some anxious moments after NAPA announced that it was dropping his current team after he was removed from the Chase by NASCAR as

Ty Dillon delivers command performance in Camping World Truck Series victory at Texas

Harold Hinson for Chevrolet

To hear Jimmie Johnson and his crew chief Chad Knaus tell it, the start of their dominating run in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday can be traced to a test session at the track two weeks prior to the race weekend. “After two days, we really honed in on the balance of the car and comfort of the car,” Johnson said in his winner’s interview after leading the most laps, winning the race and moving seven points ahead of Matt Kenseth with just two races left to run. “We felt really strong about things, but at the same time, we’re here testing, as all of our competitors were as well. So it was tough to leave here overly excited, because your competition is here getting better and getting data and all of that as well. “So we came back and just kept our blinders on and focused on our team, our race car and got the thing pretty dang awesome.” Knaus pointed out that Kenseth, who entered Texas tied with Johnson atop the points standings but finished fourth in the race, didn’t have such a good Texas test. He crashed his No. 20 Toyota after blowing a tire during the session. “I know if I was [Kenseth’s team], and I came here and on my last day of testing I

I feel really lucky and definitely excited and looking forward to the future with this team.”

In joining Furniture Row, which has an alliance with Richard Childress Racing, Truex will get to work with his close friend and fellow racer Ryan Newman, who is moving to RCR to drive that team’s No. 31 Chevrolet next year. “We will kind of be teammates next year, which is really cool,” Truex said. “I’m looking forward to working with him and hopefully helping each other.” And he said he doesn’t believe the singlecar operation is as much of a disadvantage as some might assume, because single-car teams can make changes more quickly than multi-car operations. “When they want to build a part and put it on the race car, they do it,” he said. “There is no five, six weeks of it going through a system to get it on the race car. I think that from a technology standpoint, I think it’s a great thing. There are a lot less channels for things to go through.” Furniture Row’s general manager Joe Garone also announced that his team has hired the current crew of Truex’s No. 56 to service his No. 78 next year. “We’ve been able to secure Martin’s pit crew; actually bring them on board in fulltime positions for 2014,” he said. “I think that is going to really help that part of our program.”

A week after his soon-to-be former teammate Kevin Harvick called him a “rich kid” who got his ride only because his grandfather was a team owner, Ty Dillon put on a command performance in the Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. He led 130 of 147 laps to get his second Truck win of the season and third of his career. The victory marked the 100th in a major NASCAR series by a No. 3 Chevrolet fielded by Dillon’s grandfather, Richard Childress. The late Dale Earnhardt got the majority of those victories. Dillon’s crew chief, Marcus Richmond, who was fined by NASCAR after a pit crew member tossed a mallet at Harvick after he and Dillon crashed at Martinsville Speedway, said Friday night’s win was especially rewarding, in light of the events of the previous week. “We’ve had some bad luck the last few weeks and after everything that happened last weekend, this was a great way to show how strong this Bass Pro Shops team really is,” Richmond said.

AMS publicity director dies after cancer battle The NASCAR community lost one of its most tireless and dedicated workers last week. Marcy Scott, who managed publicity at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and prior to that worked as a publicist for drivers including Matt Kenseth, Jeff Green and Ward Burton, died of cancer at age 42. “We will all miss her charisma, her penchant for detail and her way of making any task fun and enjoyable,” AMS president Ed Clark said in a statement. “To people throughout the NASCAR and the Atlanta media communities, she was a great friend and a consummate professional.” Martin Truex Jr. said Scott’s struggle with cancer and her death helped him realize that career uncertainty like he experienced in recent weeks, and NASCAR racing in general, are not always the most important things in life. “You think about people like Marcy Scott — losing her,” he said. “You know, life is not fair. As big of a deal as this is to a lot of us, sometimes it’s not the end of the world.”

SPORTS BRIEFS • Blackhawks cruise to 4-1 win over Winnipeg CHICAGO (AP) — Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane scored in the first period, leading the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night. The Blackhawks also got goals from Brandon Pirri and Patrick Sharp in their fourth win in five games. Corey Crawford made 24 saves and defenseman Duncan Keith had two assists. Winnipeg forward Michael Frolik received a standing ovation when he was recognized during a break in the first period in his first game in Chicago since he helped the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup in June. Frolik, who played a pivotal role on Chicago’s penalty-kill unit last season, was traded to the Jets for draft picks at the beginning of the offseason.

AP source: Renteria set to become Cubs manager CHICAGO (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says San Diego Padres bench coach Rick Renteria is set to become the Chicago Cubs’ manager. The person spoke Wednesday on the condition of anonymity because the hiring has not been announced. The team is expected to make it official on Thursday. The move ends a long search that began with the Cubs targeting New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi, only to be denied a shot when he decided to stay put. Instead, the Cubs are hoping Renteria can help develop their young players and lead them to their first championship since 1908. He replaces Dale Sveum, who was fired after two seasons.

AP sources: Dolphis OT Martin considered quitting football DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Two people familiar with the situation say Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin talked of quitting football earlier in his pro career before leaving the team last week to undergo counseling for emotional issues. One person said Wednesday that Martin considered giving up the sport because of the way he was being treated by other offensive linemen on the team. The person added that Marin now wants to continue his football career. Both people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins have said little about Martin’s departure. NFL officials are trying to determine whether Dolphins guard Richie Incognito harassed or bullied Martin. Incognito has been suspended indefinitely.

Ortiz wins sixth Silver Slugger as top designated hitter NEW YORK (AP) — World Series MVP David Ortiz has won his sixth Silver Slugger award as the top designated hitter in voting by major league managers and coaches. Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, Detroit third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Minnesota catcher Joe Mauer each were selected for the fifth time. Silver Slugger awards are given to the top offensive player at each position in the American and National Leagues. They were handed out Wednesday night on the MLB Network. Nine of the 18 recipients were first-time winners with major league home run and RBI leader Chris Davis of Baltimore taking home a bat-shaped trophy as the best AL first baseman. The Orioles led all teams with three winners: Outfielder Adam Jones and shortstop J.J. Hardy joined Davis in being picked for the first time. Pittsburgh, Detroit and St. Louis each had two winners. First-time selectee Pedro Alvarez (third base) was joined by Pirates teammate Andrew McCutchen. The star outfielder won his second prize. St. Louis’ Yadier Molina (catcher) and Matt Carpenter (second base) received their first Silver Sluggers. The Tigers’ Torii Hunter (outfield) got his second. Washington’s Ian Desmond (shortstop), Cincinnati’s Jay Bruce (outfield) and the Angels’ Mike Trout (outfield) each earned their second straight Silver Slugger. Other first-time winners were: Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt (first base), Colorado’s Michael Cuddyer (outfield) and the Dodgers’ Zack Greinke (pitcher). Cabrera, Hunter and Ortiz each get $100,000 bonuses, while Hardy receives $75,000 and Bruce, Cuddyer, Davis and Molina earn $50,000 apiece. Jones’ base salary next year escalates by $200,000 to $10.2 million and Cuddyer’s rises by $500,000 to $11.5 million.

There are several bathrooms throughout the campground, and all are the cleanest and least stinky of any pit-type toilets I have ever used. There are currently four waterfalls in and around the campground, some over 1,000 feet tall. All are postcard-beautiful and dump into cool, turquoise pools that can be swum in the summer. The farthest falls are an additional two-mile hike, making the entire trip 24 miles roundtrip. While some may do it in one day, most people choose, as I did, to spend the night in the campground, leaving ample time to visit all of the falls. The only way most people can hike 24 miles with water and all the camping gear necessary to sleep and live for two days is to have the best lightweight camping gear available. Before I made the hike, I researched and replaced my older hiking and camping gear with the best stuff available. All of it passed the test with flying colors. I found the following gear to be particularly spectacular and critical for anyone considering any long hike: Kelty Coromell 20-degree down sleeping bag.

They are considered bait. Indiana regulations prohibit the hunting of deer with the use or aid of bait, which is defined as “a food that is transported and placed for consumption, including, but not limited to, piles of corn and apples placed in the field; a prepared solid or liquid that is manufactured and intended for consumption by livestock or wild deer, including, but not limited to, commercial baits and food supplements; salt; or mineral supplements.” This includes artificial products and even natural foods such as corn and apples.

Veterans Day honors all who have served DEAR ABBY: Veterans Day is next week, and I hope you’ll address something I have encountered over the years. I am a Navy veteran who served four years as a Seabee. I was one of the first women to be assigned to a combat unit, and I am proud of my service. However, I dread it when Veterans Day rolls around. Why do people assume that because I’m a woman I am not a veteran? Two years ago, when I went into a restaurant that serves veterans a free meal, the man in front of me was asked if he wanted a veterans’ menu. He declined. The hostess did not ask me if I needed one; I had to request it. Later in the meal, the manager went to each of the tables speaking to the veterans, but skipped mine. Today, many women serve, and it should not be a stretch that some veterans are female. Would you comment,

you again, wear an insignia next Monday, which is Veterans Day. If you do, it will draw attention to the fact that many women serve in the military, which might be helpful to other female veterans.

On this date Nov. 7: • In 1811, U.S. forces led by Indiana Territory Gov. William Henry Harrison defeated warriors from Tecumseh’s Confederacy in the Battle of Tippecanoe. • In 1940, Washington state’s original Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapsed into Puget Sound during a windstorm. • In 1980, actor Steve McQueen died in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, at age 50.


Most eye ‘floaters’ are a harmless nuisance film (or, these days, on the digital sensor). The retina is the light-sensitive area where the whole image is registered before it is sent to the brain. The brain then interprets the image. The retina ASK registers DOCTOR K. the tennis ball coming toward you; Dr. Anthony the brain estimates it will Komaroff where be within the next second so that you can move there to hit it. Between the lens and the retina is a fluid called the vitreous. Floaters form in the vitreous. They are tiny clusters of cells or flecks of

protein. When light coming into your eyes hits one of these little floaters, it casts a shadow on the retina. It’s that shadow that you see, and call a floater. Most floaters are harmless. As you age, the vitreous fluid starts to get thicker and denser, leading to the clumps of cells and proteins. These changes in the vitreous also can cause suction that tugs on the retina. That can cause the retina to tear or to become detached. When that happens, a person suddenly sees new floaters and flashing lights. In addition, the person often has impaired vision out of the affected eye. That is not harmless: It’s a medical emergency. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can save a person’s vision. So if you have a sudden change in the number of floaters or flashing lights, or

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: At 65, I have begun to notice tiny threadlike shapes in my vision. My doctor calls them “floaters.” Should I be concerned? DEAR READER: “Floaters” describes the dots, threads or cobwebs that we notice drifting across our line of vision as we get older. You’re more likely to notice floaters when you are looking at a page of a book, a computer screen or a solid, light background. Floaters move as your eye moves and dart away when you try to look at them. To understand floaters, here’s a quick refresher on how your eyes are built. The light that enters your eyes through the pupil passes through a crystalline lens inside the eye. The lens focuses the light on the back of your eye: the retina. It’s similar to the lens on a camera focusing light on the


sudden poor vision, get help immediately. If nothing has changed with your floaters, then the question is how much do they bother you. Floaters may break apart and dissolve naturally. On the other hand, new floaters can form. Floaters can be removed with surgery. Eye surgery these days is much more effective and safe than it was decades ago, but there is always a risk with surgery. One of my patients had surgery and has been forever grateful. Most of my patients just learn to live with floaters. If they become a nuisance, moving your eye up and down or left and right may shift the floaters and provide temporary relief. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is:
