Garrett senior wins Lilly scholarship Waterhouse plans to attend Purdue BY SUE CARPENTER

GARRETT — A Garrett High School senior always knew his future was in aviation — and Purdue University was the only school to make that dream come true. Both goals moved closer to becoming a reality last week when Charles “Charlie” Waterhouse got a phone call from the DeKalb

County Community Foundation revealing he is this year’s DeKalb County Lilly Endowment Community Scholar. Waterhouse will receive four years of full tuition at an Indiana college of his choice and a book stipend of $900 per year. He ranks first in his class of 148 students at Garrett and is president of the senior class. Waterhouse said he was

“surprised and honored” to learn he is the recipient of the scholarship during a phone call last week. His family was leaving later in the day for spring break in Waterhouse Florida and returned over the weekend. Waterhouse became interested in aviation through Scouting, which he joined in first grade. He

Statehouse honor set for champion choir INDIANAPOLIS — Senior members of DeKalb High School’s Classic Connection show choir will be honored Monday in the Indiana House of Representatives. State Rep. Ben Smaltz, RAuburn, will present the choir members with a resolution honoring their state championship, earned in a competition March 16 in Plainfield. Tentative plans call for Smaltz to introduce the resolution around 1:45 p.m. Monday. Following a vote by House members, the choir members will sing “Back Home Again in Indiana.” The students then will tour the Statehouse and Supreme Court chambers. “We are really excited about this and looking forward to our visit on Monday,” said Kent Johnson, who assists his wife, director Shelley Johnson, with the choir. “This is quite an honor and is an occasion that these students will not soon forget,” Smaltz wrote in a letter inviting the choir to the Statehouse. “Their long-term success demonstrates not only their commitment, but the commitment of the school, staff, parents and community. Rare is the occasion a team of any kind wins the state championship, and to win this trophy four of the last five years is unparalleled!” Classic Connection won the Indiana State School Music Association championship for smaller schools in 2009, 2010 and 2011 as well as this year. Smaltz said he will provide copies of the resolution for every member of the choir, its staff and the high school.

The Vintage Aircraft Association holds Young Eagles rallies at the DeKalb County Airport, where young people ages 8-17 fly for free with parental permission. “I had always loved aviation, but that really sparked my interest — knowing that was what I wanted to do,” Waterhouse said.

village of Panmunjom in Paju, South Korea, Wednesday.

North Korea: Military cleared for attack SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Ratcheting up the rhetoric, North Korea warned early Thursday that its military has been cleared to wage an attack on the U.S. using “smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear” weapons. The Pentagon, meanwhile, said in Washington that it will deploy a missile defense system to the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam to strengthen regional protection against a possible attack from North Korea. The defense secretary said the U.S. was seeking to defuse the situation. Despite the rhetoric, analysts say they do not expect a nuclear attack by North Korea, which knows the move could trigger a destructive, suicidal war that no one in the region wants. The strident warning from Pyongyang is latest in a series of escalating threats from North Korea, which has railed for weeks against joint U.S. and South Korean military exercises taking

place in South Korea and has expressed anger over tightened sanctions for a February nuclear test. Following through on one threat Wednesday, North Korean border authorities refused to allow entry to South Koreans who manage jointly run factories in the North Korean city of Kaesong. Washington calls the military drills, which this time have incorporated fighter jets and nuclear-capable stealth bombers, routine annual exercises between the allies. Pyongyang calls them rehearsals for a northward invasion. The foes fought on opposite sides of the three-year Korean War, which ended in a truce in 1953. The divided Korean Peninsula remains in a technical state of war six decades later, and Washington keeps 28,500 troops in South Korea to protect its ally. U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Washington was doing

all it can to defuse the situation, echoing comments a day earlier by Secretary of State John Kerry. “Some of the actions they’ve taken over the last few weeks present a real and clear danger and threat to the interests, certainly of our allies, starting with Hagel South Korea and Japan and also the threats that the North Koreans have leveled directly at the United States regarding our base in Guam, threatened Hawaii, threatened the West Coast of the United States,” Hagel said Wednesday. In Pyongyang, the military statement said North Korean troops had been authorized to counter U.S. “aggression” with “powerful practical military counteractions,” including nuclear weapons.

Crews corral crippled cruise ship MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The crippled cruise ship whose sewage-filled breakdown in the Gulf of Mexico subjected thousands to horrendous conditions tore loose Wednesday from the dock where it’s being repaired, lumbered downriver and crunched into a cargo ship. Wind gusts near hurricane strength shoved the 900-foot Carnival Triumph free from its mooring in downtown Mobile, Ala., where the ship was brought in a five-day ordeal that began when an engine fire stranded it off of Mexico in February. Hours later, four tug boats used several mooring lines to secure the ship to the cruise terminal. A 20-foot gash about 2 to 3 feet wide was visible about halfway up the hull from the water and it wrapped partway around the stern. Underneath the gashed area, two levels of railing were dangling and

broken. Electric cables that had been plugged in on shore were dangling from the port — or left — side of the ship. Carnival said damage, though, was limited. The violent weather Wednesday also blew a nearby guard shack into the water. One shipyard worker was rescued and crews were searching for another, a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman said, but the cruise ship’s mishap was unrelated. Some crew members and workers had been staying on the ship while it was being repaired and people could be seen looking out the windows and on the deck of the ship Wednesday. Carnival said all 800 of its crew members and contractors who were working aboard were safe. An engine fire disabled the Triumph on Feb. 10 and thousands of passengers were disabled for days.

Schools chief says arming staff should be left up to districts INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s state schools superintendent signaled her opposition Wednesday to a plan that would require public and charter schools to have an employee armed with a loaded gun, saying such decisions should be made by the individual districts rather than mandated by the Legislature. Glenda Ritz, a Democrat who Ritz took office in January, said she didn’t know about AREA the proposal LEADERS before a react to Republicanproposed controlled Indiana legislation. House committee SEE PAGE A6. added it Tuesday to a Senateapproved bill aimed at starting a school security grant program. The armed employee proposal would have to clear both the full House and Senate by the Legislature’s April 29 adjournment deadline to become law. Leaders of the Indiana School Boards Association and the Indiana State Teachers Association also said they didn’t believe the proposal was well thought out. Supporters of the requirement say it would lessen the vulnerability of schools to violent attacks such as the December elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 students and six teachers died. The plan, however, is facing questions over whether people not trained as police officers should have such responsibilities and the potential costs school districts would face to ensure a trained armed person is present during all school hours. Ritz said local school officials should make decisions about what security steps are needed, including whether to hire police officers or have them assigned to SEE RITZ, PAGE A6

Girl’s body found in county 25 years ago Crime remains unsolved despite efforts FROM STAFF REPORTS

SPENCERVILLE — Twentyfive years ago today a jogger found the body of April Tinsley, 8, in a drainage ditch along DeKalb C.R. 68, two miles west of Spencerville. The crime remains unsolved, but investigators have not given up trying to catch the person who killed the little girl from Fort Wayne. “We’re still going through the

list of any tips we get,” said Indiana State Police detective Mark Heffelfinger, now the lead investigator in the case. Those tips number more than 700 since the television series “America’s Most Wanted” shone its spotlight on the Tinsley case in 2009. “Once a week something will come in,” Heffelfinger said Monday. Many of the tips involve

people who already are convicted sex offenders, but so far, none of them have led to the killer. “Someday, somehow, somebody’s going to say something” that cracks the case, Heffelfinger April Tinsley said. He encourages people with tips to call the Indiana State Police or Fort Wayne Police Department.

“It’s so tragic. It’s not right for it not to be solved.” Detective Mark Heffelfinger Lead investigator

Second sewer rate hike moves forward in Garrett BY SUE CARPENTER

GARRETT — The Garrett Common Council Tuesday moved forward on the final phase of a measure to increase the city’s sewer rates to fund a $3.5 million, state-mandated improvement to the city’s wastewater utility. Earlier this year, the council approved a 26.5 percent rate hike, half of an estimated 53 percent overall increase recommended to meet the utility’s ongoing revenue requirements for operation, maintenance, debt service, and to improve the system. Tuesday, the council unanimously introduced and passed on first reading an ordinance adding an additional 17.5 percent increase, based on findings by utility consultant Greg Guerrettaz of Financial Solutions Group Inc. The second phase of the increase was determined by the final cost of a new bond issue to fund the project and construction costs. The estimate was not available at

the previous meetings. The rate increase will not affect the trash or water rates. “The increase is still hard to accept, but a 44 percent increase is a little better than 53 percent increase,” Councilman Brad Stump said Wednesday. “I’m having a hard time with all of the increases, and I know other council members are similarly upset.” Stump noted frustration that the city had not made smaller increases in the past to avoid such a major hike. Guerrettaz was not present at Tuesday’s meeting. A mandatory public hearing is tentatively set during the council’s May 7 meeting. In other business, Capt. Adam Sheffield summarized March statistics for the Garrett Police Department. They include 272 calls, 36 traffic tickets, 169 traffic warnings, two code violations, 18 arrests, six property-damage accidents and one personal injury accident. Mayor Tonya Hoeffel announced the annual

citywide cleanup day will be Saturday, April 27, from 7-11:30 a.m. at the city barn on East Quincy Street. Electronic recycling will be available for a fee of $5 for televisions, CPUs, monitors and laptop computers; and $7 for laser printers and copiers. The first meeting of the Garrett Parks Authority for 2013 will be Monday at 7 p.m. in the mayor’s office at City Hall, Hoeffel said. During a brief meeting of the Board of Works earlier Tuesday’s evening, the board gave its approval to purchase a skid steer hydraulic breaker attachment at a cost of $6,500 from S.E. Equipment in Fort Wayne for the city’s water department. The board also accepted a bid from DDK Construction to complete a city utility building for $13,977. Another bid was submitted at $21,500. The Town of Altona signed a one-year contract for fire protection with the City of Garrett for $5,200, Hoeffel said.

KENDALLVILLE — The Noble County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Four-County Area Vocational School, Indiana Landmarks and the Dekko Foundation are investing in establishment of a Preservation Field School for restoration of historic structures. The school will be the first of its kind for high school students in northeast Indiana, said a news release from the organizations. The school’s first project will be repair and maintenance this summer at the Sower Farm near Rome City, next to the Gene Stratton-Porter Historic Site. Students will undertake repair of the farmhouse’s wood windows, removal of aluminum siding and painting of the original siding in correct historic colors. The Dekko Foundation is supporting the school with a $10,000 grant to the Noble County Convention & Visitors Bureau, which created the program. “It will have an impact, not only on the farmhouse, but other Noble County structures as well,” said John Bry, community asset development coordinator for the visitors bureau. Partners and collaborators for the field school are Indiana Landmarks, Chain O’Lakes Correctional Facility, the Four-County vocational program, Noble County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Merry LeaGoshen College, Noble County Farm Bureau and historic and cultural nonprofit organizations. The field school’s

mission is to create an educational program to teach restoration arts for proper maintenance and revitalization of historic and cultural assets to FourCounty construction students, existing contractors, Chain O’ Lakes Correctional offenders who wish to gain knowledge and marketable skills and property owners of historic structures that may need repair or maintenance.

Yates retires from postal service after 34 years BY JEFF JONES

ST. JOE — There were cake and refreshments around the St. Joe Post Office March 21, but Dave Yates made sure the mail was ready to go first. March 21 was Yates’ final day as a rural motor carrier, capping a 34-year career. As Yates was busy sorting mail and preparing it for his final journey, family members gathered in the cozy post office to help him celebrate the milestone. His father, Charlie, also a U.S. Postal Service retiree after 30 years as a carrier in Butler, was there, along

with his wife, Betty, and Yates’ wife, Connie, daughters Megan Ross and Hollie Dove, and granddaughter Saige. Yates said he didn’t necessarily plan to follow in his father’s footsteps, but after working a factory job for several years, “I wanted a change,” he said. “With Dad being in (the postal service), I knew it was a good job.” Yates took his civil service examination and served six years as a substitute motor carrier for Gordon Oberlin at the Butler branch. Yates spent another seven years as a full-time motor

carrier before transferring to St. Joe, where he served his final 21 years on the job. Yates recently stepped down as a volunteer with Honor Flight, a not-forprofit organization that flies military veterans free of charge to Washington, D.C., to tour various monuments. He wants to enjoy some fishing and has plans to finish restoration of a 1946 Willys Jeep. “I’ve enjoyed seeing families grow up,” he said. “I’ve seen kids born on the route, and now, some of them are having kids of their own. They’re more than customers, they’re friends.”

Obama presses for gun measure DENVER (AP) — Ratcheting up pressure for Congress to limit access to guns, President Barack Obama said Wednesday that steps taken recently by Colorado to tighten its gun laws show “there doesn’t have to be a conflict” between keeping citizens safe and protecting Second Amendment rights to gun ownership. “I believe there’s no conflict between reconciling these realities,” Obama said in Denver, where he was stepping up his call for background checks for all gun purchases and renew his demand that Congress at least vote on banning assault weapons and limiting access to large-capacity ammunition magazines. “There doesn’t have to be a conflict between protecting our citizens and protecting our Second Amendment rights,” he said, noting that it’s been just over 100 days since the shooting rampage that killed 20 first-graders and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., and reignited the national debate over access to guns. In danger of losing congressional momentum on the issue, Obama went to Colorado — which has a deep-rooted hunting tradition and where gun ownership is a cherished right — to highlight state efforts to tighten gun laws. His intent is to use Colorado’s example and public pressure to prod reluctant members of Congress to act. Colorado recently expanded background checks for gun purchases and placed restrictions on ammunition magazines. Prospects for passage of similar measures by Congress appear bleak, largely because of concerns by conservative Republicans and moderate Democrats who come down more on the side of gun rights. Obama said there is a middle ground. “Colorado has shown that practical progress is possible by enacting tougher

President decides to take pay cut WASHINGTON (AP) — Sharing a bit of budget pain, President Barack Obama will return 5 percent of his salary each month to the Treasury in a show of solidarity with federal workers smarting from government-wide spending cuts. Obama’s decision grew out of a desire to share in the sacrifice that government employees are making, a White House official said Wednesday. Hundreds of thousands of workers could be forced to take unpaid leave — known as furloughs — if Congress does not reach an agreement soon to undo the cuts. The president is demonstrating that he will be paying a price, too, as the White House warns of dire economic consequences from the $85 billion in cuts that started to hit federal programs last month after Congress failed to stop them. In the weeks since, the administration has faced repeated questions about how the White House itself will be affected. The cancellation of White House tours in particular has drawn mixed reactions. A 5 percent cut from the president’s salary of $400,000 per year amounts to $1,667 per month. background checks that won’t infringe on the rights of responsible gun owners, but will help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people,” he said.

West Virginia sheriff shot, killed in police car WILLIAMSON, W.Va. (AP) — A sheriff known for cracking down on the drug trade in southern West Virginia’s coalfields was fatally shot Wednesday in the spot where he usually parked his car for lunch, a state official said, and a suspect was in custody. State Police told Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin that Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum died of his wounds, said his chief of staff Rob Alsop. State Police spokesman Sgt. Michael Baylous identified the suspect as 37-yearold Tennis Melvin Maynard and said he was being treated at Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington for gunshot wounds late Wednesday. Baylous said the suspect’s condition was

unknown, but Maynard was shot by a sheriff’s deputy after a short pursuit in Delbarton that ended with Maynard crashing his car. The shooting was blocks from the county courthouse that was evacuated after the shooting. Streets into the city were temporarily blocked off and officers held white sheets around the crime scene, Crum’s body further shielded by two vehicles. Though there is no indication of any direct connection, Crum’s killing comes on the heels of a Texas district attorney and his wife being shot to death in their home over the weekend, and just weeks after Colorado’s corrections director also was gunned down at his home.

Fallon steps up as Leno plans ‘Tonight’ departure NEW YORK (AP) — NBC on Wednesday announced its longrumored switch in late night, replacing Jay Leno at the “Tonight” show with Leno Jimmy Fallon and moving the iconic franchise back to New York. Fallon will take over in Fallon about a year, the switch coinciding with

NBC’s Winter Olympics coverage next year. Veteran “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels also will take over as executive producer of “Tonight.” NBC made no announcement on who would replace Fallon at the 12:35 a.m. “Late Night” slot, although Seth Meyers of “Saturday Night Live” is considered a strong candidate. The change at “Tonight,” the longest-running and most popular late-night talk show, had been widely reported but not confirmed by the network until Wednesday. NBC reportedly just wrapped up negotiations with Fallon on a contract extension.



What Others Say •

Our Letter Policy •

Universal background checks needed for gun control Don’t look now, but the U.S. Senate might actually pass legislation that has a chance to significantly reduce gun violence. Some advocates of stronger gun laws were discouraged recently when the Senate dropped provisions to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines from legislation that will be considered starting next week. But what remains — a bill that would expand background checks when guns are purchased and stiffen penalties for straw purchases — is perhaps the single measure that could do most to tamp down the shootings in America’s neighborhoods. Mass shootings with assault weapons are awful when they occur, but over the course of a year, as we in Chicago know too well, far more Americans are killed by handguns. We need universal background checks, because we need to stop making it easy for criminals to buy guns. Virtually all firearms start out as legal, but gaps in our laws allow guns to flow from legal to illegal hands. Under the “gun show loophole,” no record keeping is required in private gun sales, which now account for two out of every five firearms transactions. A “straw purchaser,” someone with valid credentials who buys guns for those who can’t legally purchase them, can easily operate in the nether region where no records exist. That’s a huge loophole, and truckloads of guns are driven right through it. … The NRA opposes universal background checks. It helped push through a measure that prohibits the FBI from hanging on for longer than 24 hours to records of those who pass the existing background check system. That makes it hard to spot a pattern of straw purchases. Lawmakers should not be swayed by the NRA on this issue. Waiting for the U.S. Senate to act, though, is not enough. We need to act on the state level, too. Even if the U.S. Senate bill does pass, its prospects are uncertain in the U.S. House. Illinois, which already has closed the gun show loophole, would be wise to enact its own requirement for background checks for all other private transactions. Prompted by a December ruling by a federal appeals court that invalidated Illinois’ ban on the concealed carrying of weapons, both houses of the Illinois Legislature are debating gun bills. The legislation that emerges should include a universal background check and a requirement that gun owners report lost or stolen weapons, which would help close another loophole. … Chicago Sun-Times

Abstinence-only classes prove to be futile Two decades ago, conservatives in Congress undercut comprehensive sex education, which teaches teens how to avoid pregnancy and venereal diseases, and instead poured taxpayer money into abstinence-only classes that advocate shunning sex until marriage. Well over $1 billion was spent to preach abstinence — and it didn’t produce a dollar’s worth of results. Study after study found that “just say no” teaching had no effect on adolescents — except to harm them by keeping them ignorant of ways to prevent pregnancy and V.D. Most U.S. medical groups called for a return to comprehensive courses that protect teens. In 2010, under President Barack Obama, Congress ended two abstinence programs, saving taxpayers $112 million a year, but retained a third that grants up to $50 million annually to puritanical states wanting to keep teens sexless. An obstetrician, Dr. Stephanie Sober, recently suggested that taxpayers should save the $50 million, rather than waste it on abstinence-only classes. Southern West Virginia has a pathetic rate of teen pregnancy — up to three times higher than the national average — which often dooms both mothers and children to poverty and lost potential. This state actually has good sex education laws, requiring schools to protect youths by giving them effective birth control instruction. But puritanical mountain taboos cause many rural schools to shun this obligation, like Dracula recoiling from a crucifix. In effect, some classes teach abstinence-only, even though state law requires comprehensive training. All teenage girls deserve the best future possible. Helping them avoid unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases should be a solemn commitment. America should stop pushing futile abstinence-only training and instead teach teens how to protect themselves. Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette

All American ballpark food, drink and prices T here’s a scene in the classic 1989 baseball movie “Field of Dreams” where the main character Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) takes reclusive author-activist Terrance Mann (James Earl Jones) to a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park. They stop at a concession stand and Ray asks Terrance “What do you want?” Mann responds in a rage of anger how he wants to be left alone. Ray replies, “What do you want,” gesturing to the concessionaire.

KOREA: Nuclear strike capabilities remain unclear FROM PAGE A1

“We formally inform the White House and Pentagon that the ever-escalating U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and its reckless nuclear threat will be smashed by the strong will of all the united service personnel and people and cutting-edge smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear strike means,” an unnamed spokesman from the General Bureau of the Korean People’s Army said in a statement carried by state media, referring to North Korea by its formal name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. “The U.S. had better ponder over the prevailing grave situation.” However, North Korea’s nuclear strike capabilities remain unclear. Pyongyang is believed to be working toward building an atomic bomb small enough to mount on a long-

range missile. Long-range rocket launches designed to send satellites into space in 2009 and 2012 were widely considered covert tests of missile technology, and North Korea has conducted three underground nuclear tests, most recently in February. “I don’t believe North Korea has to capacity to attack the United States with nuclear weapons mounted on missiles, and won’t for many years. Its ability to target and strike South Korea is also very limited,” nuclear scientist Siegfried Hecker, a senior fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, said this week. “And even if Pyongyang had the technical means, why would the regime want to launch a nuclear attack when it fully knows that any use of nuclear weapons would result in a devastating

military response and would spell the end of the regime?” he said in answers posted to CISAC’s website. In Seoul, a senior government official said Tuesday that it wasn’t clear how advanced North Korea’s nuclear weapons capabilities are. But he also noted fallout from any nuclear strike on Seoul or beyond would threaten Pyongyang as well, making a strike unlikely. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly to the media. North Korea maintains that it needs to build nuclear weapons to defend itself against the United States. On Monday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un led a high-level meeting of party officials who declared building the economy and “nuclear armed forces” as the nation’s two top priorities.

BODY: Officers followed 600 leads in 2009 effort FROM PAGE A1

Good Friday. A child reported seeing April being forced into a beat-up, blue pickup truck in Fort Wayne. Police said the girl was sexually molested, then suffocated. Shortly after her body was discovered, a woman told police she saw a blue vehicle stopped near the site on C.R. 68 around 5:30 a.m. on Easter Sunday, April 3, 1988. In the aftermath of the crime, police picked up a Fort Wayne man for questioning and seized four different blue pickups in Fort Wayne for investigation. The case remained unsolved in 2009, when “America’s Most Wanted” took an interest in the story. That brought the FBI and National Center for Missing

and Exploited Children into the picture. In May 2009, some 20 national investigators arrived in Fort Wayne for two weeks of intensive focus on solving the murder. They set up shop in the Northeast Indiana Regional Public Safety Academy at Fort Wayne. “There’s a lot of manpower and resources on this thing,” said Indiana State Police detective Mark Carunchia of DeKalb County, who had been the lead investigator when the crime occurred. “What’s going on here is impressive,” Heffelfinger said in 2009. More than 70 officers from the FBI, Fort Wayne Police, Allen County Sheriff’s Department and Indiana State Police devoted full time to the case for those two weeks. Heffelfinger said 28 teams of two officers apiece followed 600 leads. They collected DNA samples from more than 200 suspects who fit the profile of the girl’s killer in some way. For the first time, police revealed that in 1990, someone had claimed responsibility for the crime through graffiti on a barn in

northeast Allen County. It warned, “You are next. Ha ha.” Then, in 2004, someone claiming to be the killer wrote threatening notes to four little girls in Fort Wayne and near Grabill. In August 2012, “America’s Most Wanted” reported newly released evidence that a plastic Sears shopping bag containing a sex toy was found near the girl’s body. Police said that fact had been kept quiet, so it could be used to prosecute a suspect who would know about the toy. A profile released by police in 2009 said the killer likely lives, works or shops in northeastern Allen County and has a low to mediumlow income. In 2004, he owned or borrowed a Polaroid camera and a forest-green pickup truck with a matching camper shell, the profile said. The killer would likely be in his 40s or 50s now. “I would love to see this one solved before I retire,” Heffelfinger said in a 2012 interview. “It’s so tragic. It’s not right for it not to be solved.”

staff those schools. The schools, unfortunately, are in the same position. Budget cuts have affected them as well.” Jeff Stephens, superintendent of DeKalb Eastern schools in Butler and St. Joe, focused on the budget issue. “This is an unfunded mandate, so we will be hiring personnel without any additional resources,” Stephens said. At the same time, he said, his district stands to lose $162,000 over the next two years in a proposed state budget for education. He also estimates that new federal health insurance laws will cost his district $205,000 per year. Using existing school employees as protection officers would save on salary, but could increase liability insurance costs, Stephens said. “If the state really wants to be helpful, they could offer liability coverage” for the school protection officers, Stephens said. That would cost less than providing $50,000 grants to school districts to hire resource officers, he said. LaGrange County Sheriff Terry Martin said arming school staff members is not a good idea. “I’d rather see them put resource officers in schools,” Martin said. Besides providing an extra level of protection, school resource officers can serve as a liaison from the school

community to law enforcement, providing valuable information, he said. State Rep. Ben Smaltz, R-Auburn, said he expects details to be worked out when the school-safety bill comes to the floor for debate by all House members. “I’m going to see what happens when it goes to the floor and see what solutions are offered to the logistical issues” before taking a position on the bill, Smaltz said. Smaltz said he has heard from one school superintendent in his district who opposes making school protection officers mandatory. “I have a feeling that may be the consensus, although I have not heard that,” Smaltz said. Fremont Community Schools Superintendent Lori Vaughn said when she made education her career, she did not foresee the issue of armed personnel in schools. “I’d never imagine,” she said, “but it’s a wait-and-see. Safety isn’t a new concept.” Vaughn said safety of students and staff members in her district always has been and will continue to be paramount and primary focus. She praised law enforcement officials with stepping up efforts to work with her district on safety. Vaughn said there has been a greater police presence in the school district and community as a whole.

school buildings. “I’m not for or against any type of officer that’s placed in a school district,” she said. “I think that’s up to the school district to make that local decision and the state of Indiana should not be mandating that.” The bill would require a person designated as the school protection officer — whether a police officers or employee such as a teacher or principal — carry a loaded weapon and be at the school at all times during regular school hours. The protection officers would have to meet training standards set by a new statewide school safety board, but the bill doesn’t specify any training minimums or include any funding to pay for training or other expenses. Frank Bush, executive director of the Indiana School Boards Association, said any teacher, principal or counselor who takes on such duties would already have full-time duties in the school. “There’s no guarantee that the person that gets trained is going to be there every day on the premises with the firearm to be able to provide

that kind of protection,” Bush said. “So it seems more logistically important for a school to have the money to go out and employ a fulltime person for that kind of work that’s trained in law enforcement.” Legislators cited the opportunity to hold costs down by avoiding the hiring of police officers at all schools as a reason to open the security position up to current employees. The provision’s sponsor, Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, said having an armed person in the school would be the best defense against an attack. “We are introducing firearms into schools, absolutely,” Lucas said. “But when the lack of firearms gives us the tragedies that we’re experience right now, to continue down the same path, to me, would be the true crime.” Indiana law makes it a felony for someone other than a police officer to possess a gun on school property, although school districts can authorize school employees to have guns on school property. Bush said he didn’t know of any Indiana districts that now allow

teachers to have guns at school. A National Rifle Association-sponsored report released Tuesday recommended all schools across the country arm at least one staff member after a 40- to 60-hour training program. Lawmakers in more than 20 states are considering allowing armed school employees, but no states now require armed employees in schools, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The lack of specifics on training, selection of the employees and funding in the Indiana proposal worry Brenda Pike, executive director of the Indiana State Teachers Association, which represents more than 45,000 teachers and other school workers. She said such a step doesn’t address issues such as mental health and bullying that often are tied to violence in schools. “You have to consider is that enough training to even be able to deliver on the promises,” Pike said. “There’re just so many unanswered questions and so many layers of this issue that haven’t been explored yet.”

Local educators, sheriffs and a lawmaker reacted Wednesday to proposed legislation that would require every Indiana public school to have a school protection officer who carries a weapon. An Indiana House committee added the requirement to a bill that offers $50,000 grants to pay for school resource officers, who are trained police officers. A school protection officer could be a resource officer or any school employee who is trained for the purpose. Noble County Sheriff Doug Harp called the proposal a step in the right direction for providing a safe educational environment. “I am a proponent of establishing an armed presence in our schools,” Harp said. “Ideally, we would have police officers in every school, and I have repeatedly stated that if this was a realistic option, I would do just that.” However, Harp estimates it would cost $75,000 per year for each resource officer. “The cost to those local police agencies to have a school resource officer in those respective school facilities would be staggering,” Harp said. “I don’t ever foresee that the sheriff’s department or any of the local police agencies will ever have the ability to

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Once the video went viral, Mike Rice’s coaching days at Rutgers were over. Now the question is whether anyone else will lose their jobs — including the athletic director who in December suspended and fined Rice for the abusive behavior, and the university president who signed off on it. Rice was fired Wednesday, one M. Rice day after a video surfaced of him hitting, shoving and berating his players with anti-gay slurs. The taunts were especially troubling behavior at Rutgers, where freshman student Tyler Clementi killed himself in 2010 after his roommate used a webcam to spy on him kissing another man in his dorm. It also came at an especially embarrassing time for the NCAA, with the country focused on the basketball Final Four this weekend. Rice, in his third season with the Scarlet Knights, apologized outside his home in Little Silver, N.J. “I’ve let so many people down: my players, my administration, Rutgers University, the fans, my family, who’s sitting in their house just huddled around because of the fact their father was an embarrassment to them,” he said. “I want to tell everybody who’s believed in me that I’m deeply sorry for the pain and hardship that I’ve caused.” SEE RICE, PAGE B3

EN opens with 22-2 win BY JAMES FISHER

KENDALLVILLE — This was the start the East Noble Knights were looking for. The Knights jumped ahead with an 8-run second inning and never trailed on the way to a 22-2 victory over Central Noble in the season-opener for both baseball squads on Wednesday. The effort gave new coach Cory Jacquay a victory in his first game as skipper of the Knights. “It’s nice to get that first win, we’ve been working hard and it paid off,” Jacquay said. “Hopefully there are many more wins to come — it’s only one — but to put up 22 runs is impressive.” Matt Patton took the

pitching win for East Noble. He struck out five and walked three. Marc Musselman also saw action, striking out four and walking three. The duo allowed just two Central Noble hits. The Cougars weren’t pleased with their effort, but were glad to finally get a game in the books. “With the weather, we lost four games,” explained Central Noble coach Jim Sickafoose. “We’ll get better when we get the experience. Just the fact we got on the field was a plus.” The Cougars used three pitchers, with Kevin Kennedy taking the loss. Jon Van and Joe Golden also saw duty. The Knights opened the second inning with walks by Ben Tackett and Noah Hamilton, with Tackett

soon scoring on a Jake Peterson hit. Hamilton later scored on a passed ball and Peterson came home on a shot by Matt Strowmatt. Strowmatt made it 4-0 when he scored on a Grey Fox single, with Patton launching a shot off the centerfield fence to bring Fox and Musselman across the plate. Patton would take the margin to 7-0 with his score on a Nic Weimer hit, and Weimer would also come home before the Cougars could end the inning. “Once we got the bats moving, it kind of set the tone for the rest of the game,” Jacquay said. If the 8-run second inning wasn’t enough, the Knights added a score from Strowmatt in the third inning, then scored 13 runs

Ryan Newman returns to Martinsville Speedway as the defending winner of this weekend’s STP 500. Last year’s triumph, his first career Martinsville victory, came in dramatic fashion and has been a part of NASCAR’s highlight footage for the past 12 months. Last spring, team owner Rick Hendrick was poised to get his 200th win at Martinsville, where he got his first victory back in the spring of 1984 with Geoff Bodine driving.

After five Sprint Cup races this season, there have been races at five different types of race tracks, with five different winners, and the three participating manufacturers all recording race victories. John Darby, NASCAR’s managing director of competition and the Sprint Cup Series director, said on a teleconference last week that those numbers are indicators that the Generation 6 race car that made its debut this season is off to a good start. “It’s very difficult to make a firm judgment off of one race or one style of race track,” he said. “But we’ve had a great sampling of everything from short tracks to restrictor-plate racing so far in ’13, and we have been very pleased with all of what we’ve seen.” Darby went on to say that he believes the ontrack product is getting better as teams and drivers get more experience with the new car. “All the engineers and resources in the world can put their heads together and present a car for competition,” he said. “But until the actual race teams get ahold of the race car and do what they do best … I don’t believe [we] have seen its full potential … we have just scratched the surface.” Darby also explained his decision not to penalize any drivers for their conduct in the closing laps — and afterward — at Auto Club Speedway. Some wondered why Tony Stewart wasn’t punished for turning his car in to Joey Logano’s after the race and confronting him about the block Logano put on him during a late-race restart. “A few years ago, we backed away from micro-managing drivers’ emotions,” Darby said. “You would hope in today’s world that if somebody didn’t win a race, they would be upset about it for whatever reason. That’s what our drivers do — they try to win races.” He said some emotion — and anger — is just part of the sport. “A couple of drivers arguing a little bit doesn’t create a foul in our world today,” he said. “The crews did a great job of managing their drivers to make sure that it didn’t cross the line to where there was physical violence or anything like that.”

Truck Series resumes

The Camping World Truck Series has been idle since the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, but that doesn’t mean the drivers have been in holiday mode. Some have been trying to get some dirt racing experience to prepare them for the July 24 race at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. It’s the first appearance on dirt for a major NASCAR series since the Cup circuit raced at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in 1970. Joey Coulter has been competing in a Late Model in the NeSmith Chevrolet Late Model Series. Matt Crafton drove a dirt Modified at Tucson Raceway Park, the dirt track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and at Volusia Speedway Park. Max Gresham also raced at Volusia. “It was totally different,” Coulter told reporters from Speed TV in describing his experiences racing on a clay surface, where drivers often run practically sideways and on the verge of losing control lap after lap. “I’ve been racing for 14 years, and all 14 have been on pavement. It was really, really different. “But it was a ton of fun and I really enjoyed it right from the get-go.” Some are planning to tune up in test sessions. Red Horse Racing plans to send its three drivers, Timothy Peters, German Quiroga and John Wes Townley, to a dirt-racing school, but there are some Truck Ty Dillon Green-flag passes Laps ledSeries drivers like by Dale who haveby extensive dirt.Earnhardt Jr. Jimmie experience on in the pastrun 16 Sprint Johnson inNASCAR the Several veteran drivers who races atto Martinsville past Sprint Cup races at areCup on 16 dirt mostly for fun planning race at the mostand of any Martinsville Speedway, tops are Speedway, Eldora.

RICE: Video of coach’s tactics in practice drew outrage from N.J. lawmakers FROM PAGE B1

Athletic Director Tim Pernetti was given a copy of the tape by a former employee in November and, after an independent investigator was hired to review it, Rice was suspended for three games, fined $75,000 and ordered to attend anger management classes. University President Robert Barchi agreed to the penalty. Pernetti initially said Tuesday he and Barchi viewed the video in December. The president issued a statement Wednesday, saying he didn’t see it until Tuesday and then moved to fire the 44-year-old coach for repeated abusive conduct. Through a school spokesman, Pernetti backed up his president and said Barchi did not view the video until this week. “Yesterday, I personally

reviewed the video evidence, which shows a chronic and pervasive pattern of disturbing behavior,” Barchi said in a statement. “I have now reached the conclusion that Coach Rice cannot continue to serve effectively in a position that demands the highest levels of leadership, responsibility and public accountability. He cannot continue to coach at Rutgers University.” The video shows numerous clips of Rice at practice during his three years at the school firing basketballs at players, hitting them in the back, legs, feet and shoulders. It also shows him grabbing players by their jerseys and yanking them around the court. Rice can also be heard yelling obscenities and using gay slurs.

Several college coaches said they had never seen anything like the Rutgers video and it broke a cardinal rule: Never put your hands on a player. “Don’t tell me that’s the old way. That’s the wrong way,” said John Thompson Jr., the Hall of Famer who led Georgetown to the 1984 national title. Thompson, the father of current Hoyas coach John Thompson III, called the images “child abuse.” UConn women’s coach Geno Auriemma, winner of seven national titles, said “there is no line that could be drawn that would make that behavior acceptable.” The most famous case of a coach accused of abusing a player is the one involving Bob Knight of Indiana. The university put him on a zero-tolerance

policy in 2000 after an investigation into a former player’s allegations that the coach had choked him during a practice. When a student alleged that Knight grabbed him later that year, Knight was fired. Knight, who now works for ESPN, couldn’t be reached Wednesday. The Rice video drew outrage on campus and all the way to the capital in Trenton, with lawmakers and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie supporting the firing at the state’s flagship public university. “This was a regrettable episode for the university, but I completely support the decision to remove Coach Rice,” Christie said in a statement. “It was the right and necessary action to take in light of the conduct displayed on the videotape.”


SPORTS BRIEFS • Twins rally past Tigers, 3-2 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Eduardo Escobar’s two-run double with one out in the ninth inning lifted the Minnesota Twins to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday. After Joaquin Benoit issued a leadoff walk to Trevor Plouffe, reliever Phil Coke took over. Coke got the first out, but Brian Dozier’s single advanced pinch-runner Jamey Carroll to third. Then Escobar drove the first pitch Coke to the deepest part of the park in front of the bullpens in left-center field. The ball bounced between outfielders Andy Escobar Dirks and Austin Jackson and both runners scored easily. The rebuilding Twins enjoyed their first on-field celebration of the season and spoiled another strong performance by a Tigers starter. The AL Central champion Tigers began the season without a set closer after Jose Valverde wasn’t brought back. Anibal Sanchez threw five scoreless innings, just like Justin Verlander did in the opener. But after a two-up, two-down save on Monday, Coke (0-1) blew his chance in this one.

Big trade day for Blue Jackets BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Marian Gaborik landed in Columbus, providing the trade-happy Blue Jackets’ playoff push a nudge. The purge in Buffalo continued, with the Sabres dealing captain Jason Pominville to Minnesota on Wednesday. The talent-laden Pittsburgh Penguins showed they weren’t done dealing by acquiring forward Jussi Jokinen from Carolina. And even NHL rookie of the year candidate Cory Conacher wasn’t an untouchable after Tampa Bay traded him to Ottawa in exchange for goalie Ben Bishop. What began as a slow day in leading up to the NHL’s mid-afternoon trading deadline, ended with a flourish as teams continued to jockey for playoff positioning with a little over three weeks to go in a lockout-shortened season. When the dust settled, 23 teams completed 17 deals involving 30 players. The Blue Jackets led the way with four trades in a bid to continue a late-season push to secure only their second playoff berth. Their most notable deal involved the New York Rangers, in which Columbus acquired Gaborik and defensemen Blake Parlett and Steven Delisle. In return, the Rangers received forwards Derek Dorsett and Derick Brassard, defenseman John Moore and a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft. Gaborik, who waived his no-trade clause, was the key for the Blue Jackets, who opened the day 11th in a tightly packed race for the Western Conference’s eighth and final playoff spot. Columbus also swapped goalies with Philadelphia, sending Steve Mason to the Flyers in exchange for Michael Leighton and a third-round pick in the 2015 draft. The Blue Jackets added another goalie, by acquiring Patrick Killeen from Pittsburgh for future considerations. And Columbus also added forward Blake Comeau from Calgary in exchange for a fifth-round pick this year. While the Blue Jackets continued their push for the playoffs, the Sabres showed more signs of conceding their chances by looking instead beyond this season. Buffalo, which has already fired its longtime coach Lindy Ruff, sits 12th in the East. In trading Pominville, their third core player in five days, the Sabres acquired two rookies — forward Johan Larsson and goalie Matt Hackett — a first-round pick in this year’s draft and a second-rounder next year. Add it up, and Buffalo has stockpiled six picks over the past three weeks.

Richard Pitino to lead Gophers MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota has picked 30-year-old up-and-comer Richard Pitino to take over for Tubby Smith. The university announced on Wednesday evening that it has reached an agreement to bring Pitino to the Golden Gophers after one season at Florida International. Athletic director Norwood Teague says full terms of the contract will be finished later in the week. In his lone season at Florida International, Pitino led the Panthers to an 18-14 record, the school’s first winning season in 13 years. He turns 31 in September, fitting the profile of the young, up-and-comer that Teague has preferred to hire in the past. Smith was fired last week after six seasons at Minnesota. He was hired at Texas Tech on Monday.

Big East changing names NEW YORK (AP) — The current Big East will be called the American Athletic Conference starting next season. The conference announced the decision Wednesday after university presidents approved the new moniker earlier in the day. The Big East football schools were in need of a new name after they agreed to let seven basketball schools break away from the conference to start a new league this summer to be called the Big East. In return, the football schools received about $100 million of a $110 million pot the league had accumulated in recent years from exit and entry fees and NCAA basketball tournament revenue.

AdoptA-Tree fest is April 20 BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — This is the 24th year for the Adopt-ATree Festival at ACRES’ Wing Haven Nature Preserve. The event will be held on April 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event has been organized annually by Art Eberhardt and Jim Shearer of Angola with a contingent of other local people that include David Syler, John Eddy, David and Bonnie Snyder, Paul Nailor and Lee Sauer. Notably, Eberhardt’s daughter, Laurie, and her husband Peter Martin have been very involved over the years. Laurie brings microscopes to allow guests to view the life in a bucket of water from the preserve’s Gentian Lake. Some of the creatures are large and visible to the naked eye, such as tadpoles and water bugs. Others pop into view only with the aid of the microscopes. Martin provides music on fiddle and dulcimer to those browsing through or staying to picnic and chat. Among the activities at



There were many activities geared toward budding naturalists at Wing Haven Nature Preserve for the annual Adopt-A-Tree festival held at the ACRES Inc. property near Pokagon State Park

the festival at Wing Haven, 180 W. C.R. 400N, north of Angola, is building bluebird houses and suet feeders. Sauer will do caricature drawings. The purpose of the event has always been to encourage local people to plant and care for trees. This year, the tree starts available will include tulip, Norway spruce, Washington hawthorn and shumard oak.

on April 21, 2012. Joshua Davies, 7, Montgomery, Mich., interacts with John Eddy of Angola as they construct a bluebird box.

“It’s a native tree, but you don’t hear it much mentioned,” said Eberhardt. Also known as Southern red oak or spotted oak, the Shumard’s territory reaches into northern Indiana and down into the southern part of Texas and Florida. It grows fairly quickly and produces acorns evey two to four years. It has quality wood and is a good shade tree.

Every year I launch my boat in Lake Michigan in early March in search of spring coho, and every year I go home without fish. It’s always too early. By April, however, the big lake is a different place. Deep fish are OUTDOORS swimming shallow and WITH DON winter ice flows are usually Don Mulligan melted away. As a general rule, the first week of April is the best week of the year to fish Lake Michigan for spring coho, but the past two years have been anything but typical. March 2012 was one of the hottest on record and March 2013 was the sixth coldest on record. That makes timing the run nearly impossible to predict, and fishermen with an open schedule the most successful. Deciding when to fish needs to be based on the wind and water temperature far more than the date on the calendar. Generally, when the shallow Indiana waters hit and stay between 39 and 50 degrees, it’s time to fish for cohos. Ice flows should be a concern for several weeks this year, however. As of the last week of March, a few were still lingering. Ice flows are an especially big concern on days when the north wind blows. North winds blow the flows into Indiana’s shore, making it perilous to fish. In fact, unless anglers have a big boat or a death wish, it’s a good idea to avoid north winds all year long. A 15 mph north wind on the big lake can mean fourfoot waves and rollers. That’s too much for most small boats to navigate and definitely not worth risking for a couple silver fish. The good news is that a couple warm, sunny days in April is all it takes for cohos to crowd Indiana’s shoreline. On days when the wind is right in April, it’s possible to put several spring fish in the box from shallow water. Not surprisingly, the best fishing is in places where the water is warmest. The hot water outlet in the Port of Indiana is still off limits to boaters, but there is still limited shore access. A better bet for boaters is an area known as Gary Light. There is a small light at the end of a rock breakwater marking the spot. The spot is a good bet because of its heavy, industrial runoff flow of water into the lake. It sits just east of Pastrick Marina in East Chicago. Pastrick has limited parking, but offers the shortest run to Gary Light if the weather is bad. I’ve made the run from the Portage Marina, but only on days when waves are less than three feet. Portage is a nicer marina,

as has the advantage of being close to the Bass Pro Shop. There is also more parking available at Portage than East Chicago. While cohos and brown trout are being caught at all of the Indiana marinas right now, it is important to remember the general migration the cohos make in the spring. They always arrive at East Chicago first and slowly work their way east. That means Michigan City is one of the last Indiana marinas to report good numbers of spring cohos every year. Most fish caught this time of year will either be 1-year-old, 12-inch fish, or 2-year-old, 18-inch fish. As summer progresses, cohos fatten quickly after moving into deeper water. Even when they are in close and aggressive, however, it’s important to fish them properly. Troll slowly when the water is just hitting the 40degree mark. Blue and fire tiger jointed shad raps, as well as silver and black No. 7 husky jerks are always producers when trolled on a flat line in the spring. There is no need to use downriggers or even planer boards now. Planer boards allow fishermen to run additional flat lines, but seem pointless when hooking 2- and 3-pound fish. They take the fight out of the fish, and most caught on a board are simply skipped across the surface to the boat. Planer boards also become a source of friction among fishermen when there is dozens of boats trolling the same area because some boat’s planer spreads are more than 50yards wide. Besides watching the water temperature and wind, anglers should hope for heavy April rains across Michigan and Wisconsin. They help Indiana fishing by melting the remaining ice flows on Lake Michigan, warming the lake and pushing more fish into our comparitively shallow water.

China bird flu appears to mutate BEIJING (AP) — In a worrisome sign, a bird flu in China appears to have mutated so that it can spread to other animals, raising the potential for a bigger threat to people, scientists said Wednesday. So far the flu has sickened nine people in China and killed three. It’s not clear how they became infected, but there’s no evidence that the virus is spreading easily among people. But the virus can evidently move through poultry without making them sick, experts said, making it difficult to track the germ in flocks.

Syrian rebels set sights on wouth BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian rebels captured a military base in the south on Wednesday and set their sights on seizing control of a strategically important region along the border with Jordan that would give them a critical gateway to attempt an attack on the capital, Damascus. With foreign aid and training of rebels in Jordan ramping up, the opposition fighters have regained momentum in their fight to topple President Bashar Assad. But while the fall of southern Syria would facilitate the rebel push for Damascus, it might also create dangerous complications, potentially drawing Syria’s neighbors into the 2year-old civil war. Besides abutting Jordan, the region includes territory that borders Syria’s side of the Golan Heights, along a sensitive frontier with Israel.

People • Gosling: Hey dairy farmers, stop de-horning calves LOS ANGELES (AP) — He’s not milking his fame, but Ryan Gosling is lending his name to the cause of cows. The 32year-old actor sent a letter this week to the National Gosling Milk Producers Federation urging the group to advocate against the industry practice of removing calves’ horns. He asks that they help stop what he calls a “barbaric practice” by requiring farmers to breed naturally hornless cattle. The letter was released Wednesday by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Gosling has worked with the group before in its campaign urging KFC to adopt more humane methods of slaughtering chickens.


Study: Dementia most expensive malady Alzheimer’s costs more than cancer, heart disease BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Cancer and heart disease are bigger killers, but Alzheimer’s is the most expensive malady in the U.S., costing families and society $157 billion to $215 billion a year, according to a new study that looked at this in unprecedented detail. The biggest cost of Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia isn’t drugs or other medical treatments, but

the care that’s needed just to get mentally impaired people through daily life, the nonprofit RAND Corp.’s study found. It also gives what experts say is the most reliable estimate for how many Americans have dementia — around 4.1 million. That’s less than the widely cited 5.2 million estimate from the Alzheimer’s Association, which comes from a study

that included people with less severe impairment. “The bottom line here is the same: Dementia is among the most costly diseases to society, and we need to address this if we’re going to come to terms with the cost to the Medicare and Medicaid system,” said Matthew Baumgart, senior director of public policy at the Alzheimer’s Association. Dementia’s direct costs, from medicines to nursing homes, are $109 billion a year in 2010 dollars, the new RAND report found. That compares to $102 billion for heart disease and $77 billion

for cancer. Informal care by family members and others pushes dementia’s total even higher, depending on how that care and lost wages are valued. “The informal care costs are substantially higher for dementia than for cancer or heart conditions,” said Michael Hurd, a RAND economist who led the study. It was sponsored by the government’s National Institute on Aging and will be published in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia

and the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Dementia also can result from a stroke or other diseases. It is rapidly growing in prevalence as the population ages. Current treatments only temporarily ease symptoms and don’t slow the disease. Patients live four to eight years on average after an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, but some live 20 years. By age 80, about 75 percent of people with Alzheimer’s will be in a nursing home compared with only 4 percent of the general population, the Alzheimer’s group says.

Kerry heads back to Mideast in new push for peace WASHINGTON (AP) — Evoking the U.S. shuttle diplomacy of decades past, Secretary of State John Kerry is making his third trip to the Middle East in a span of just two weeks in a fresh bid to restart long-stalled Kerry peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. Though expectations are low for any breakthrough on Kerry’s trip, which begins Saturday, his meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders represent some of the Obama administration’s most sustained efforts at engagement in a part of the world that has frustrated American administrations for the past six decades. “His diplomacy will be based on what he hears from the parties,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Wednesday. Kerry, she said, will be making clear that both sides have to want to get back to the negotiating table “and that they’ve also got to recognize— both parties — that compromises and sacrifices are going to have to be made if we’re going to be able to help.” Kerry is going at a precarious time. Overnight and into Wednesday, Israel and Gaza militants engaged in the heaviest fighting since a cease-fire was declared in November. The militants fired several rockets into southern Israel, and Israel responded with its first airstrike in Gaza since the fighting subsided. No injuries were reported on either side. Kerry had planned to leave Monday for talks in London and then South Korea, China and Japan. But officials said he moved up his departure to Saturday for a first stop in Turkey, where he’ll seek to build on recent efforts by that nation and Israel to repair ties and coordinate on stemming violence in Syria. Kerry then travels to Jerusalem and to Ramallah in the West Bank, which he visited with Obama last month before returning to Israel a second time. U.S. officials say Kerry is primarily interested in gauging what the Israelis and the Palestinians are willing to do to restart direct negotiations that have been mostly frozen for the past 4 years. He’ll meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Trying to avoid raising

expectations unrealistically, Nuland said Kerry’s trip isn’t the start of a new era of shuttle diplomacy, a concept that got its start with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger during his regular travels back-and-forth to end the 1973 Mideast War and secure peace between Israel and some of its neighbors. Similar efforts took place under later secretaries James A. Baker III, Warren Christopher and Condoleezza Rice. But it undeniably marks a shift after President Barack Obama largely kept the Arab-Israeli conflict at arm’s length during his first term. Despite publicly challenging Israel to halt settlement construction in disputed territory and becoming the first U.S. president to publicly endorse Israel’s pre-1967 borders as the basis of a two-state solution, Obama and Kerry’s predecessor, Hillary Rodham Clinton, presented no grand peace plan and failed to produce any sustained, high-level diplomacy between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Clinton avoided Israel and the Palestinian territories for nearly two years at one point, and only open war between Israel and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip last November prompted frantic U.S. diplomatic action. The last significant peace negotiations occurred when President George W. Bush brought leaders to Annapolis, Md., with the goal of a treaty by the end of 2008. After a 2-year hiatus, talks that began under the Obama administration’s guidance in 2010 quickly fizzled out. Hopes for quick progress still seem bleak. Israel’s new government, with a large hardliner contingent, has shown no sign of giving ground to the Palestinians on sensitive issues such as Jewish settlements in contested lands, future borders or the question of Jerusalem — which both sides claim for a capital. Power among the Palestinians, meanwhile, is split between those who demand tough Israeli concessions before talks can occur and those who simply reject the notion of negotiations. “Neither Abu Mazen nor Netanyahu is a candidate for an end to the conflict,” said Yossi Alpher, who advised former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, referring to Abbas by his nom de guerre. Kerry, he said, should seek merely “some kind of partial solution.”

Tweet boomerangs on U.S. Embassy WASHINGTON (AP) — Yikes! It seems “The Daily Show” and diplomacy don’t mix. That’s the lesson the U.S. Embassy in Cairo is learning the hard way after being rebuked by both the Egyptian government and the State Stewart Department for causing an international incident. The embassy tweeted a link to a Jon Stewart monologue that mocked Egypt’s president — offending the Egyptians — and then deleted its entire Twitter account before restoring it without the post in question, irritating Washington. Egyptian President

Mohammed Morsi’s office called the tweet “inappropriate” and unbecoming of a diplomatic mission while the State Department said the unusual affair was the result of “glitches” in the embassy’s social media policies that are now being corrected. The imbroglio over the tweet comes at a time of rising tensions between Cairo and Washington, which has expressed deep concerns that Morsi’s government is backsliding on human rights protections. And, it underscores the pitfalls of allowing individual American embassies to control the messages they disseminate through social media. The trouble began Tuesday when the embassy posted a link to Stewart’s monologue on his Comedy Central show the night

e r a h S FUN! the

before. Stewart took savage aim at Morsi for the arrest and interrogation of Egyptian comic Bassam Youssef, who has frequently criticized the president on a popular TV program that has been likened to Stewart’s own. In the clip, Stewart accused Morsi of being petty, undemocratic and ignoring more pressing problems like Egypt’s economic crisis and violent crime to go after satirists who are critical of his government. He pointed out that he has made a living by poking fun at political leaders and that such activity is harmless and should be protected. Morsi’s office responded to the embassy’s post on its own Twitter feed, saying: “It’s inappropriate for a diplomatic mission to engage in such negative political propaganda.”

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Insurgents wearing Afghan army uniforms launched a suicide attack and stormed a courthouse Wednesday in a failed bid to free Taliban inmates, killing at least 44 people, half of them shot in the basement. Nine attackers were killed. The attack — one of the deadliest in the more than 11-year-old war — began about 8:30 a.m. when nine men wearing suicide vests drove into the capital of Farah province in western Afghanistan, evading checkpoints by using army vehicles, according to the provincial police chief. The standoff ended some eight hours later when the last gunman was killed. Insurgents have stepped up assaults targeting the Farah provincial government in recent months as they vie for control of an area bordering Iran to the west and Helmand province to the east.

Wife is suspicious of clerk and husband


DEAR ABBY: My husband, ‘‘Wade,’’ and I went into a convenience store near our home that we frequent regularly. A new employee — a pretty, much younger girl — stared at Wade with an expression of recognition and surprise on her face. When I asked him what that was about, he laughed it off and said I was ‘‘imagining things.’’ The next time we saw her, Wade acted nervous and started talking fast, as if trying to distract me. He seemed to be avoiding eye contact with her. She ignored me while obviously trying to lock eyes with Wade. The third time, she again ignored me but smirked and giggled while we were checking out. Then she shouted, ‘‘See ya later!’’ to my husband as we were walking out the door. When I turned, I caught Wade glaring at her. When I asked why he did it, he replied, ‘‘I looked at




because he felt guilty about something and didn’t want to discuss it. It proves the truth of the adage, ‘‘The best defense is a strong offense.’’ Believe me, you have my sympathy, but you need to get to the bottom of this, so don’t put it off. DEAR ABBY: Where does the priest get the ashes for Ash Wednesday? — MARY IN VISTA, CALIF. DEAR MARY: Traditionally, palm branches from the previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned to create the ashes, and those ashes are retained for the next year’s Ash Wednesday. Some people keep the palm fronds from the last Palm Sunday tucked behind a cross or a religious picture in their home and bring them to be burned. I have this on good authority. (When I told a priest I would have guessed they were left over from the Inquisition, he laughed.)

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: It’s obvious that there are some health problems that affect only women, and others that affect only men. But for the health problems that affect both women and men, are there differences in symptoms, or in reactions to treatments? DEAR READER: That’s an interesting question. Perhaps surprisingly, the answer is yes. Heart disease is a good example. Angina and heart attacks occur when too little blood flows to the heart through arteries. The classic symptom is chest pain or pressure that travels to the left arm, jaw or neck when you exert yourself. But men are much more likely than women to have these typical symptoms. Instead, women can have shortness of breath, abdominal pain and fatigue. In addition, misleading test results for heart disease are more common for women. An

mind. I’ve learned that lesson more than once. Once a man in his late 70s called me to say he was concerned about a lump under the skin on his chest. At least 99 times out of 100, such a little lump under the skin is one of two things: a little ball of fat called a lipoma, or a plugged-up gland called a sebaceous cyst. So I knew that’s what it was going to be. But when I examined his lump, it wasn’t soft and squishy as I had expected. It was rock hard and was sitting in the skin right over his breast. The biopsy showed that the man had breast cancer. I knew that, on rare occasion, men could get breast cancer, but I had never seen it in a male patient of mine — before or since. DR.

Scientists find possible hint of dark matter GENEVA (AP) — It is one of the cosmos’ most mysterious unsolved cases: dark matter. It is supposedly what holds the universe together. We can’t see it, but scientists are pretty sure it’s out there. Led by a dogged, Nobel Prize-winning gumshoe who has spent 18 years on the case, scientists put a $2 billion detector aboard the International Space Station to try to track down the stuff. And after two years, the first evidence came in Wednesday: tantalizing cosmic footprints that seem to have been left by dark matter.

But the evidence isn’t enough to declare the case closed. The footprints could have come from another, more conventional suspect: a pulsar, or a rotating, radiation-emitting star. The Sam Spade in the investigation, physicist and Nobel laureate Sam Ting of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said he expects a more definitive answer in a matter of months. He confidently promised: “There is no question we’re going to solve this problem.” “It’s a tantalizing hint,” said California Institute of Technology physicist Sean

Carroll, who was not part of the team. “It’s a sign of something.” But he can’t quite say what that something is. It doesn’t eliminate the other suspect, pulsars, he added. The results from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, or AMS, are significant because dark matter is thought to make up about a quarter of all the matter in the universe. “We live in a sea of dark matter,” said Michael Salamon, who runs the AMS program for the U.S. Energy Department. Unraveling the mystery of dark matter could

help scientists better understand the composition of our universe and, more particularly, what holds galaxies together. Ting announced the findings in Geneva at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, the particle physics laboratory known as CERN. The 7-ton detector with a 3-foot magnet ring at its core was sent into space in 2011 in a shuttle mission commanded by astronaut Mark Kelly while his wife, then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, was recovering from a gunshot wound to the head.

The device is transmitting its data to CERN, where it is being analyzed. For 80 years scientists have theorized the existence of dark matter but have never actually observed it directly. They have looked for it in accelerators that smash particles together at high speed. No luck. They’ve looked deep underground with special detectors. Again no luck. Then there’s a third way: looking in space for the results of rare dark matter collisions. If particles of dark matter crash and annihilate each other, they should leave

a footprint of positrons — the anti-matter version of electrons — at high energy levels. That’s what Ting and AMS are looking for. They found some. But they could also be signs of pulsars, Ting and others concede. What’s key is the curve of the plot of those positrons. If the curve is one shape, it points to dark matter. If it’s another, it points to pulsars. Ting said they should know the curve — and the suspect — soon. The instrument will be measuring cosmic rays, where the footprints are found, until 2020 or so.
