GOOD MORNING State police plan sobriety checkpoint The Fort Wayne District of the Indiana State Police will conduct a sobriety checkpoint in DeKalb County during the late-night hours Friday, a news release said. In an effort to reduce the number of alcohol-related automobile crashes, police at the sobriety checkpoint will target impaired drivers. The location, which was not disclosed, will be an area identified as having a high number of alcohol related crashes. Sgt. Max Weber said motorists should have their driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations readily available when entering the checkpoint to reduce the amount of time that they are delayed. Weber also offered these following tips: • Plan ahead and always designate someone as a designated driver; • Don’t get behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming alcoholic beverages; • If you are impaired, call a taxi or call a sober friend or family member to come and get you; and • If you are hosting a party, always offer alcoholfree beverages, and make sure that every guest leaves with a sober driver.

CAIRO (AP) — Riot police backed by armored vehicles, bulldozers and helicopters Wednesday swept away two encampments of supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, setting off running street battles in Cairo and other Egyptian cities. At least 278 people were killed nationwide, many of them in the crackdown on the protest sites. Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and pro-reform leader in the interim government, resigned in protest over the assaults as the military-backed leadership imposed a monthlong state of emergency and nighttime curfew. Clashes broke out elsewhere in the capital and other provinces as Islamist anger spread over the dispersal of the 6-week-old sit-ins by Morsi’s Islamist supporters that divided Egypt. It was the highest single day death toll since the 18-day uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak in 2011. The Health Ministry said 235 civilians were killed and more than 2,000 injured, while Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim said 43 policemen died in the assault. He said Morsi supporters attacked 21 police stations and seven Coptic Christian churches across the nation, and assaulted the Finance Ministry in Cairo, occupying its ground floor. The violence drew condemnation from other predominantly Muslim countries, but also from the West, with Secretary of State John Kerry saying it had dealt a “serious blow” to Egypt’s political reconciliation efforts. The assault to take control of the two sit-in sites came after days of warnings by the interim administration that replaced Morsi after he was ousted in a July 3 coup. The camps on opposite sides of the capital began in late June to show support for Morsi. Protesters — many from Morsi’s Muslim

The foundation hosted a reception for its grant recipients Wednesday on the stage of the DeKalb Outdoor Theater. “You are the stars,” foundation executive director Wendy Oberlin told grant recipients. “We’re celebrating the good work that goes on in our community and the part your particular organization plays.” Oberlin said the foundation receives many grant requests and must turn down as many as it awards. “It’s not easy. We turn down

good proposals every time,” she added. Twenty-one grants totaling $48,512 were awarded from the Community Grantmaking Fund. Recipients are: • Auburn Arts Commission, Inc., $2,000 for the Pianos on the Square event in Auburn, Butler, Waterloo and Garrett. • Auburn Presbyterian Church, $750 for educational supplies for the Tuesday Kids in the Neighborhood program. • Boomerang Backpacks, $3,500 to add McKenney-Harrison Elementary School to the program. • Butler Youth Evangelistic Association (Filling Station), $4,000 general operating support. • Cancer Services of Northeast

Waterloo utility rate hikes moving forward BY AARON ORGAN

WATERLOO — The Waterloo Town Council on Tuesday read a pair of ordinances that would bring substantial hikes to water and sewer rates in the town and scheduled a public hearing on them. If the council approves, sewer rates would be raised 30 percent and water rates would rise 28.8 percent for town residents. The proposed hikes translate to the average 5,000-gallon user paying an additional $8.41 per month for water and just under $20 more for sewage. The higher rates would cover fast-depleting reserves and eventually should make both utilities self-sustaining again. The council had to consider efforts to repay debt balances while prioritizing projects to fund with the revenue. The sewer rate adjustment ordinance also increased the required cash deposit for new customers from $40 to $50. The council set a public hearing for Sept. 10 to allow residents to comment on the proposed rate adjustments, as required by law. The council did not consider a plan that would have set up 3 percent rate hikes annually. The council in a special meeting had voted to draft such an ordinance, to avoid having to raise rates so significantly in the future.

Town manager DeWayne Nodine said financial consultants Umbaugh and Associates determined that annual increases “might be getting ahead of ourselves,” because it’s not clear if the proposed rate hikes will solve the problem or if another large adjustment will be necessary next year. Also Tuesday, the council agreed to pursue an ordinance to require owners of horses to pick up the animals’ waste on town roadways. Councilman Bill Hubartt said piles of horse droppings were found recently in front of a local church and an elementary school. He ordered the council’s attorney, David Kruse, to research what could be done to hold horse owners responsible for the excrement. Kruse said that the town has an ordinance that regulates horses running at large, but the new issues are caused by horses that are controlled. Another ordinance deals with horses being kept inside the town limits. Kruse said the town has no ordinances dealing with animal excrement, however. Kruse said the city of Auburn has a “removal of excrement” ordinance on its books that requires owners to pick up the droppings of animals. He told the council it could consider a similar ordinance.

Board finds deputy justified in shooting dog BY MATT GETTS

ALBION — A Noble County Sheriff’s Department firearms review board ruled Tuesday that a Noble County deputy was justified in shooting a 130-pound Rottweiler as it charged at him Saturday in a Bear Lake neighborhood in the southwestern part of the county. Noble County Sheriff Doug Harp said the review board consists of one of the department’s senior firearm instructors, the department’s chief deputy and a civilian. After going through the evidence, including an audio file with the sound of a large dog charging the officer and statements from two witnesses, the board backed up the reaction of Deputy Shafter Baker. “They ruled the officer was justified in shooting the dog,” Harp said. The board convenes whenever an officer discharges a weapon in the line of duty, with the exception of putting down injured animals such as deer, Harp said. Harp has the option of overruling the board’s

findings, but said he will not. “There was nothing in the information that would cause me concern in the way it was handled,” he said. The dog’s owner, Brandie Sturgill, was skeptical of the board’s findings, particularly since two county deputies sit on the three-person panel. “Of course the officers are going to have his back,” Sturgill said. Shortly after the shooting, social media websites came alive with complaints about how the incident was handled by police. Many of the posts on the Internet claim Baker had called to the dog, and only when the Rottweiler responded to the officer did Baker fire. The audio of the incident, recorded on a microphone worn by Baker, clearly shows Baker did not call to the animal. The recording reveals Baker first conferring with a witness who called 911 to report a large dog attacking children in the area. The caller then directs Baker to where the dog can be seen. Following a few seconds

of the sound of footsteps, a loud bark registers, followed in quick succession by louder and louder aggressive barking until a shot is fired. The woman who was standing with Baker gave a written statement to police, saying she thought the dog was going to attack Baker. Another witness made an almost identical statement. The Rottweiler’s name

was Chevy, according to Sturgill. Sturgill said the family went for an outing Saturday morning, and Chevy was secured in the yard by a chain when they left. Early in the afternoon, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department received two 911 calls reporting a dog attacking children in the 18800 block of Fourth Street, Bear Lake.

Baker responded, arriving at approximately 12:56 p.m. The shooting occurred moments later. Sturgill said she did not know how the dog got loose from the chain. A neighbor, Joyce Parsons, said she was afraid of Chevy when she first moved to the area a year ago, but she said the dog never troubled anyone. She added that Chevy usually was restrained. “Every now and then he’d wander off,” Parsons said. She emphasized that Chevy was a good dog. Sturgill said she thinks police need more training in dealing with dogs. She also complained that no attempt was made to cover the dog after it was shot, traumatizing her children when they arrived home and saw the family pet in the road. “The kids were hysterical,” Sturgill said. “It was a horrible, horrible thing.” She said police cars should be equipped with tarps. Sturgill estimated the weight of 5-year-old Chevy at 130 pounds. She said the big dog was very good with her children. “The kids would ride him

Garrett library awards expansion contract BY SUE CARPENTER

GARRETT — The Garrett Public Library Board unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday to award its expansion project to Signature Construction LLC of Auburn, contingent on funding. The project, plus additional allowances and soft costs, totals $1.9 million. Plans call for a 6,800-square-foot, two-level expansion on the south side of the 100-year-old library building at an original

estimated cost of $1.6 million. Jack Krouse, president of Construction Control Inc. of Fort Wayne, reviewed bids submitted by six contractors that were opened last week. Signature’s base bid plus performance bond came in at $1,304,840. Alternate options bids, including various types of carpeting, new entry doors to replace the original wooden doors on the 100-year-old building, reroofing of an existing flat roof, changing fluorescent ceiling lights from T-12

lamps to T-8 lamps and ballasts, and expansion of a plaza area on the new south entrance total an additional $77,734. Krouse also recommended allowances for other repairs to the existing building and to establish an amount for the erection of structural steel that has been donated by two area industries, for an additional $51,000. He also added soft costs such as professional fees, printing costs, insurance, equipment, cost of issuance and contingencies for a total

of $485,500. Krouse said area subcontractors listed in Signature’s bid include Knott Excavating of LaOtto, Todd Masonry of Wolcottiville, Pranger Enterprise of Ashley and Weller Electric of Garrett, among others. The Garrett Common Council approved a $1.5 million bond to fund the project at its June 18 meeting, reduced from a requested $1.8 million. Additional funding would come from contributions, grants and the Library Improvement Reserve Fund. At a June meeting, City Councilman Brad Stump reported the library’s Library Improvement Reserve Fund fund held $758,000. Tuesday, the library board approved a

resolution to use $200,000 from that fund for pay immediate costs for the expansion project. An additional $100,000 was approved at the board’s July meeting. The $300,000 in appropriations first must be approved by the Garrett Common Council at its meeting Tuesday, a requirement under Indiana law for appointed boards such as the library. Library director Cate Birdseye said any money left over at the end of the project can be put back into the Library Improvement Reserve Fund if totally bonded at Tuesday’s board meeting. She said the library safely can spend $200,000 from the fund, reduced from $500,000 Birdseye mentioned earlier in the meeting.

like a horse,” Sturgill said. “He was the most amazing dog I’ve ever had in my 32 years of life. He was like one of our children.” Baker said he regrets the incident.“I just wish the dog hadn’t charged me,” he said. Harp said Baker is very familiar with dogs, having retired from the U.S. Army, where his last assignment had been as kennel master.

Briefs • Israel, Palestine begin peace talks JERUSALEM (AP) — With tensions high and expectations low, Israeli and Palestinian negotiators kicked off their first substantive round of peace talks in nearly five years, huddling together at an undisclosed location Wednesday in search of an end to decades of conflict. The meeting was cloaked in secrecy, an attempt by both sides to prevent leaks to the media and maintain trust. Officials would say only that the talks took place in Jerusalem, and there was no immediate comment from either side. The Israeli government released a brief video showing the chief negotiators shaking hands as the talks continued into the evening.

Eurozone’s longest recession at an end MADRID (AP) — Minube, a travel startup on the outskirts of Madrid, is doing something that many Spanish companies haven’t thought about for years: It’s hiring. The company, which sells bookings as it helps travelers share their experiences using social media, has nearly doubled its headcount from 17 at the end of last year to 30. Business is booming as customers come in from across Europe — including some places hardest hit by Europe’s economic crisis. “We’re finally starting to see a bigger growth curve in Spain, and the strong growth in Italy has been a surprise,” Minube’s co-founder, Pedro Jareno, said. “The improvements we are starting to see in the market are constant.”

People • Sandra Oh leaving ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ LOS ANGELES (AP) — ABC says “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sandra Oh is leaving the medical drama after the coming season. Shonda Rhimes, the show’s creator and executive producer, said she’s grateful for what she called the Oh actress’ “brilliant” work. Rhimes said “Grey’s Anatomy” will savor Oh’s character of Dr. Cristina Yang in the upcoming 10th season and then give her the exit she deserves. ABC said it intends to keep “Grey’s Anatomy” on its schedule for years to come and with as many of the original cast as possible. Stars Ellen Pompeo as Dr. Meredith Grey and Patrick Dempsey as Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd have been with “Grey’s Anatomy” since its 2005 debut.


Manning apologizes for harming U.S. Leaker asks chance to attend college FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Pfc. Bradley Manning took the stand Wednesday at his sentencing hearing in the WikiLeaks case and apologized for hurting his country, pleading with a military judge for a chance to go to college and become a productive citizen. He addressed the court after a day of testimony about his troubled childhood in Oklahoma and the extreme psychological pressure that experts said he felt in the “hyper-masculine” military because of his gender-identity disorder —

feeling that he was a woman trapped in a man’s body. “I am sorry that my actions hurt people. I’m sorry that they hurt the United States,” he said as he began. The soldier said that he understood what he was doing but that he did not believe at the time that leaking a mountain of classified information would cause harm to the U.S. Manning, 25, could be sentenced to 90 years in prison for the leaks, which occurred while he was working as an Army intelligence analyst in Iraq in 2010. The judge

will impose the sentence, though exactly when is unclear. Manning gave an unsworn statement, which meant he could not be cross-examined by prosecutors. He spoke for only a few minutes and appeared to be reading from a statement he was holding. He said he realizes now that he should have worked more aggressively to find a legal means to draw attention to his concerns about the way the war was being waged. He said he wants to get a college degree, and he asked for a chance to become a more productive member of society. His conciliatory tone was at odds

with the statement he gave in court in February, when he condemned the actions of U.S. soldiers overseas. Manning’s attorneys contend he showed clear signs of deteriorating mental health that should have prevented commanders from sending him to a war zone to handle classified information. Manning eventually came out to Capt. Michael Worsley, emailing the therapist a photo of himself in a long, blond wig and lipstick. The photo was attached to a letter titled “My problem,” in which Manning described his trouble and his hope that a military career would “get rid of it.”

Jesse Jackson Jr. gets prison term

Teen uses Internet to describe captivity SAN DIEGO (AP) — Hannah Anderson says a longtime family friend “tricked” her into visiting his house, tied up her mother and younger brother in his garage and kidnapped her, setting off a massive search that stretched across much of the western U.S. When she later learned they were found dead in her captor’s burning Southern California house, the 16-year-old said she cried all night. “I wish I could go back in time and risk my life to try and save theirs. I will never forgive myself for not trying harder to save them,” she wrote on a social media site roughly two days after she was rescued and FBI agents killed James Lee DiMaggio in the Idaho wilderness. Many of the hundreds of the questions she fielded on the social media site were typical teenage fare.



Debris burns as a UPS cargo plane lies on a hill at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport after crashing on approach Wednesday in Birmingham, Ala.

Cargo plane crash kills 2 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A UPS cargo plane crashed into a field near the Birmingham airport Wednesday, killing two pilots and scattering wreckage over a rural area moments after witnesses heard the massive A300 jet coming in at treetop level. People living near the airfield reported seeing flames coming from the aircraft and hearing its engines struggle in the final moments before impact. “It was on fire before it hit,” said Jerome Sanders, who lives directly across from the runway. The plane, which had departed from Louisville, Ky., went down about a half-mile from Birmingham-Shuttlesworth Airport. It broke into several pieces and caught fire. The pilot and co-pilot were the only people aboard. Weather conditions at the time were rainy with low clouds. Toni Herrera-Bast, a spokeswoman for the city’s airport authority, said the crash did not affect airport operations, but it knocked down power lines and appeared to topple at least one tree and utility pole. The National Transportation Safety Board sent a team of investigators to the scene. UPS spokesman Jeff Wafford said the jet was carrying a variety of cargo,

but he did not elaborate. The pilots’ names were not immediately released. But a man who identified himself as a family member said one of the pilots was Shanda Fanning, a woman in her mid-30s from Lynchburg, Tenn. Wes Fanning, who said he was the woman’s brother-in-law, said Shanda Fanning had been flying since she was a teenager. Ryan Wimbleduff, who lives just across the street from the airport property, said the crash shook his house violently. Standing in his driveway, he and his mother could see the burning wreckage. “I ran outside and it looked like the sun was coming up because of the fire on the hill,” he said. “Balls of fire were rolling toward us.” Chunks of riveted metal that appeared to be from the plane landed in the yard

of Cornelius and Barbara Benson, who also live near the crash site. Barbara Benson said she was awakened by a tremendous boom and “saw a big red flash” through her bedroom window. As day broke, the two were able to see that the tops of trees around their property had been knocked down and they were missing a piece of their back deck. Cornelius Benson said planes routinely fly so low over his house that a few years ago, the airport authority sent crews to trim treetops. The planes come close enough that Barbara Benson has sometimes been able to “to wave at the captains as they pass.” Sharon Wilson, who also lives near the airport, said she was in bed before dawn when she heard what sounded like engines sputtering as the plane went over her house.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison Wednesday for illegally spending $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items, the judge scolding the son of the famed civil rights leader for using the money as a “piggy bank” and sentencing his wife to a year as well. However, Jackson, who emotionally apologized to his father, mother, congressional colleagues and others, was given significantly less prison time than federal guidelines recommend, recognized by the judge as a “complex person” who has done both good and bad. Sandra Jackson, a former Chicago alderman, was sentenced for filing false joint federal income tax returns. After prison, the former congressman is to spend three years on supervised release and complete 500 hours of community service. If he earns credit for good

behavior in prison, he could end up serving closer to two years. He agreed to repay the $750,000 when he pleaded guilty earlier this year. According to court documents, the Jacksons had spent campaign money on TV’s, restaurant dinners, an expensive watch and other costly personal items. Jackson, 48, had been a Democratic congressman from Illinois from 1995 until he resigned last November. In an emotional speech to the judge, he choked up and used tissues to blow his nose. He apologized and said he wanted to “take responsibility for my actions.” “I misled the American people. I misled the House of Representatives. I misled the Federal Election Commission,” he said. “I was wrong.” “I also want to apologize to my dad and to my mother,” Jackson added, stopping to compose himself.

Hunting guide out The Indiana Hunting and Trapping Regulations Guide for 2013-14 was released this week. The 48-page guide, featuring three strutting wild turkeys on the cover, is available at businesses that sell Indiana Department of Natural Resources hunting licenses, DNR Division of Fish and Wildlife properties, and the DNR Customer Service Center in Indianapolis. Digital and PDF versions are available online at To view the cover to know what to look for in stores, see

downloads/2013INHG_ Cover.jpg. The guide includes useful information on bag limits, general hunting regulations, special regulations for deer and wild turkeys, furbearer hunting and trapping information, and contact information for DNR district wildlife biologists and DNR Law Enforcement. A new feature is a full-page map that shows the location of state and federal properties open to the public for hunting along with an adjoining page that lists the sites and phone numbers.

Caymans are expensive, exhilarating While most outdoorloving Hoosiers are more at home in the woods with a bow or gun than on the ocean with snorkeling gear, even the most OUTDOORS diehard land-lover WITH DON ought to travel to an exotic Don Mulligan location to try a totally different type of outdoors sport at least once in their life. Recently, my family and I traveled to Grand Cayman Island to do just that and live the salt life for a week. We were inspired by the island’s culture and ocean’s beauty, but shocked by how hard it was to get there and how much it cost to stay. Unlike most of the Caribbean Islands most American’s visit, the Cayman Islands are on the other side of Cuba. That makes traveling to and from the island more of an ordeal, and the islanders less Americanized. That can be both good and bad. It is a plus that the Caymans are less commercialized than the islands just south of Florida, but the journey to and from the place is a nightmare. Blame it mostly on U.S. Airways, but it took longer for our luggage and us to get to the Caymans than it does for me to get to the shores of the Arctic Ocean in Alaska, one of the most desolate places on earth. Once on the island, the people, accommodations and opportunities to sample the outdoors sports are spectacular, albeit really expensive. A dinner at a restaurant

for four without liquor, for example, costs around $350 U.S. dollars. Lunch for four at the only Wendy’s on the island was $90. Most condominiums have kitchens and there are a couple supermarkets, but count on spending at least twice as much for groceries as you would for the same items in Indiana. If money is not a concern, there are numerous things to do on Grand Cayman Island. The diving and snorkeling there is some of the best in the world. An expansive, shallow reef that reaches right up to the shore everywhere surrounds the island. That places vibrant corals and countless types of marine life right outside most resort’s back door. An inexpensive snorkeling set purchased in the U.S. before traveling is all anyone needs to be mesmerized for a week by the constantly changing ocean reef ecosystem. And much of the life we consistently encountered is rare or nonexistent at many other island locations where human encroachment is much more evident. Just outside our unit, we swam with barracuda, tarpon, conches, lobster and too many types of coral to mention. For a fee (again, not cheap) we took a catamaran to the outer reef and swam with and handled very large stingrays and hundreds of types of tropical fishes. For an even larger fee, we swam quite intimately with dolphins and were allowed to interact with them for about an hour. The most unique outdoor adventure the Caymans have to offer, however, only happens after dark. For a smaller fee than most other activities on the island ($360 for four),

a guide will lead patrons out into the ocean on two-person kayaks to a bioluminescent bay. Only a couple such places are known to exist in the entire world, and Grand Cayman Island has one of the most spectacular. After getting past any fear associated with kayaking in the open ocean in the pitch dark, guests are introduced to a type of plankton and shrimp that defend themselves by emitting light when disturbed. Waving a paddle, or even just your hand through the water makes it light up like a white

fluorescent light that trails off at the end. Pounding the bottom with a paddle also causes shrimp to pop with light like fireworks. It is one of the most spectacular and bizarre spectacles I have witnessed in my travels.

Lugar fitting recipient for 2013 Medal of Freedom The selection of Richard Lugar to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom arrives at a telling moment. Lugar joins 15 other Americans chosen by President Obama for the nation’s highest civilian honor given annually to exceptional citizens. This year’s list includes Chicago Cubs legend Ernie Banks, late Hawaii senator and World War II Medal of Honor recipient Daniel Inouye, former President Bill Clinton, country music great Loretta Lynn, late astronaut Lugar speaks with Sally Ride, wisdom and clarity, but former North isn’t known for uttering Carolina basketball charismatic quotations. coach Dean Smith, and television host Oprah Winfrey, among others. “This year’s honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world,” the president said. Lugar has done just that, most notably during his 36 years in the U.S. Senate representing Hoosiers. His contributions exceed that timespan, as well. Before entering Congress, he served on the Indianapolis Public Schools board and as the Indy mayor. Since leaving the Senate in January, he’s established The Lugar Center, a nonprofit facility aimed at finding solutions to issues championed by the senator. Those topics include reducing the nuclear weapons threat, worldwide hunger, energy independence, and “enhancing bipartisan governance.” Lugar deserves a medal for the latter goal alone. The 113th Congress is on course to become the least productive in history. Its term began Jan. 3, just as Lugar finished cleaning out his Senate desk. He was asked to leave, by a faction of Indiana voters, losing the 2012 Republican primary to tea party challenger Richard Mourdock, who then lost to Joe Donnelly, a centrist Democrat, in the general election last November. In reality, Lugar would not fit well in the 113th Congress. A longtime conservative, Lugar was ousted by the extreme right of his party for not clinging to a rigid ideology. He voted thoughtfully. A significant slice of Congress members find bipartisanship repugnant. Not coincidentally, a significant slice of Americans find the current Congress repugnant. A mere 15 percent of Americans have approved of Congress’ performance this year, tying the all-time low set in 2012, according to Gallup ratings. The prime reasons cited for the public’s dissatisfaction are partisan gridlock and a failure to get things done. Its inability, so far, to find a fair consensus on immigration reform — widely supported by Americans — stands as a glaring example. Lugar speaks with wisdom and clarity, but isn’t known for uttering charismatic quotations. Still, as Lugar prepares to accept the Medal of Freedom at a ceremony later this year, his former colleagues in Congress and that governing body’s newcomers should consider an otherwise nondescript comment he made while reflecting on his days as an Indiana school board member. “That first responsibility as a school board member — meals for latch-key children — was absolutely critical in my understanding of the extraordinary problems of poverty,” Lugar said. He allowed his mind to be opened and then reshaped by an experience. He was enlightened. Too many members of Congress listen only to themselves and their ideological supporters, and vote to satisfy only those voices. It is appropriate the honor Lugar will receive is called the Medal of Freedom. He served his state and country with a free mind.

As with newspapers, travel agents, the music industry, bookstores and others negatively impacted by the disintermediation of the Internet, higher education is next. And the rate of change will be faster for one simple reason. The primary driver of adoption rate of innovation is economic advantage. Compare the economics of a college degree (some with little career value) that leaves one $ 25,000 in debt after four years to a job paying $70,000 annually after taking four or five FREE courses in four to six months. That is the basic driver that will cause the MOOC movement to succeed. The movement is not new, but has only been in the public spotlight for about one year. Advocates estimate that it is only 5 percent to 10 percent advanced to its near-term potential and already employers are clamoring to hire those that have acquired the appropriate skills. (Writers, IT Developers, Database Professionals, Web Designers, Project Managers and Healthcare Administrators are only a few areas where there is a supply shortfall.) Look for knowledge acquisition through MOOCs to outstrip traditional college educations as MOOCs quickly mature. And hybrid concepts will provide nonacademic benefits of college. (College is as much socialization and networking as an intellectual exercise, and such accouterments of college life as booze and sex are hard to provide online.) Unless universities find ways to attract students to the right fields of study, improve graduate quality, and dramatically lower costs, they simply will be out of business. Trine University scores abysmally for academic quality in the U.S. News and World Report rankings. In the Aug. 3, 2013, issue of Forbes magazine article: “Is Your College Going Broke? The Most And Least Financially Fit Schools In America,” Trine University scored 1,321 and a D rating. An A+ rating was 4,500. If bankruptcy should happen to Trine, Angola will lose its largest employer, be saddled with vacant dorms, fraternity houses, office and classroom buildings, athletic facilities, and even a golf course. Is our city government evaluating the risks and taking appropriate steps? Clearly, all efforts should be made to help the university succeed, but pouring our money into a failed business model is no way to do that. The city needs Plan B. Selected MOOC-related documents are at The educational establishment is skeptical as is any institution threatened by disruptive innovation. It is responding predictably: ignore, deny, co-opt, compartmentalize to preserve cash cows, tell romanticized stories (e.g. “We’ve had online degrees for years”), belatedly adopt and struggle — or simply perish.

Government announces 30 fastest growing careers Thinking of changing careers or wondering about job prospects in the near future? The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has projected the 30 fastest-growing careers for the next five years. The bureau updates the projections every two years. The number of people employed in the U.S. is expected to increase 10.1 percent by 15.3 million by 2018. Some jobs will grow at a much faster rate. So where is the job growth? It’s not surprising among the fastest-growing careers are health and computer-related jobs. What is surprising is the lack of traditional careers on the list like teaching, automotive technician, nursing and banking. There are no careers in manufacturing on the list. Here are the 30 fastest-

growing careers as projected by the government: biomedical engineer; network systems and data communication analyst; home health aide; personal and home care aide; financial analyst; medical scientist; physician assistant; skin INSIDE care specialist; COMMENT physical therapist aide; athletic trainer; and Dennis Nartker biochemist biophysicist; dental hygienist; veterinarian technologist and assistant; dental assistant; computer application software engineer; medical

assistant; physical therapist assistant; veterinarian; self-enrichment technician; compliance officer; occupational therapy aide; environmental engineer; pharmacy technician; computer software and systems software engineer; survey researcher; physical therapist; personal financial advisor; environmental engineering technician; occupational therapist assistant; and fitness trainer, aerobics instructor. The requirements for these careers range from a high school diploma to a master’s degree. Some require ongoing training. State certification and licensing is needed in some cases, and passing a state or national exam is necessary in some careers. The median pay range for the 30 careers listed is $21,440 for home health aides to $85,430 for

water balloon toss and other games. Since November, Inspiration Ministries has provided free community meals twice a month at the Cupbearer Cafe, 138 E. Seventh St., in Auburn. In July, the organization served free weekly community meals on Thursday nights. Area churches also have provided assistance by bringing entertainment and donating food for meals. “It always been about connecting with the community,” said Andrew Foster, director of Inspiration Ministries. “We want to assist people and help change their lives,” he said. Foster said the goal of Inspiration Ministries is to create community that inspires change. The community meals have provided ministry opportunities to connect with

people, Foster said. Inspiration Ministries’ prison ministry sends out newsletters to more than 1,600 people in 75 prisons in the United States. “We connect with inmates to let them know they are not forgotten,” Foster said. Foster said the organization receives correspondence from more than 100 inmates. “We care about their lives, and as a faith community we have a responsibility to help them change,” he said. “We have seen success and failure, but that doesn’t mean we’ll stop.” Some of the newsletters in the prison ministry go to inmates in DeKalb, Allen, Noble and Steuben counties. “We hope that we can be a part of permanent change in their life,” Foster said.

Utah fire destroys 13 homes WANSHIP, Utah (AP) — A wildfire threatened hundreds of homes Wednesday after destroying more than a dozen others outside the resort town of Park City. The lightning-sparked blaze was among several in the West where fires have devoured dry grass and brush and burned to the

edges of small communities. Shifting winds in Utah pushed the fire toward homes in a subdivision about 10 miles outside Park City. It destroyed a dozen homes on Tuesday, plus another home overnight. Fire officials say it also burned 20 outbuildings and several vehicles and boats. The fire began near a

populated area and quickly grew to more than 1,200 acres, or nearly 2 square miles. Flames flared Wednesday with rising temperatures and winds. Fire spokeswoman Jennifer Hansen said about 250 homes were still threatened, including some along a golf course in the town of Promontory.

No kids on this Obama vacation EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama’s fourth summer vacation on the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard is humming along with the usual golf games and basketball. But the family vibe is different. For the first time, daughters Malia and Sasha are missing, away at summer camp. White House officials

say only that the girls will reunite with their parents later in the week, without giving a specific date. “When they get here, we’ll let you know,” spokesman Josh Earnest said Wednesday. Michelle Obama arrived Saturday with her husband and family dog, Bo. Obama returns to Washington on Sunday. In the meantime, the

president is staying at a 5,000-square-foot, $7 million Chilmark home rented from Chicago friend David Schulte and whiling away the hours by engaging in many of the pastimes that kept him busy during previous family stays on the picturesque island: golf, dining out and basketball. One sign of the girls’ absence is that Obama has yet to drop by the Bunch of Grapes Bookstore in Vineyard Haven. He typically heads there with them on his first full day of vacation. That his daughters have yet to arrive is another reminder of the years that have passed since their father became president. They are older now — Malia is 15 and Sasha is 12 — and increasingly leading lives more independent of their parents.

INDIANAPOLIS — West Nile virus-infected mosquitoes have been found in all four northeast Indiana counties, the Indiana State Department of Health reported. Health officials continue to encourage Hoosiers to take steps to protect themselves from West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne diseases after mosquito samples from 35 counties have now tested positive for the virus. There has been one human case of West Nile virus in Ripley County and one equine case in Adams County. Counties with West Nile virus-infected mosquitoes include: Adams, Allen, Carroll, Clinton, Daviess, Delaware, DeKalb, Grant, Hamilton, Jay, Jefferson, Knox, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Lake, Marion, Marshall, Martin, Monroe, Montgomery, Morgan, Newton, Noble, Ohio, Parke, Steuben, Sullivan, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Starke, St. Joseph, Vanderburgh, Vigo, White and Whitley. The ISDH has collected and tested nearly 120,000

mosquitoes from all 92 counties for West Nile virus and St. Louis encephalitis. There have been no positive findings for St. Louis encephalitis. State health officials recommend the following preventative measures: • avoid places where mosquitoes are biting; • apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaradin or oil of lemon eucalyptus to clothes and exposed skin; • install or repair screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of the home; and, • when possible, wear pants and long sleeves, especially if walking in wooded or marshy areas. West Nile virus can cause West Nile fever, a mild form of the illness, which can include fever, headache, body aches, swollen lymph glands or a rash. Some individuals will develop a more severe form of the disease with encephalitis or meningitis and other severe syndromes, including flaccid muscle paralysis. Individuals who think they may have West Nile

Stopping West Nile To reduce potential mosquito breeding grounds: · Discard old tires, tin cans, ceramic pots or other containers that can hold water; · Repair failed septic systems; · Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers left outdoors; · Keep grass cut short and shrubbery trimmed; · Clean clogged roof gutters, particularly if leaves tend to plug up the drains; · Frequently replace the water in pet bowls; · Flush ornamental fountains and birdbaths periodically; and, · Aerate ornamental pools, or stock them with predatory fish.

virus should see their health care provider. For more information about mosquito safety, please visit the Indiana State Department of Health’s website at StateHealth. Information about mosquito activity in the state can be found at isdh/23592.htm.

Tight end concern for Colts

IU basketball sets attendance record BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Indiana turned last season’s basketball success into a record-setting season at the ticket office. School officials announced Wednesday that the Hoosiers average attendance for 19 home games was 17,412 — breaking the previous mark of 17,148, set in 2001-02. Assembly Hall’s official seating capacity is 17,472. The Hoosiers ranked fifth in the nation with last season’s average, marking the first time they were ranked in the top five since 2001-02 and only the second time since 1985. “This is a wonderful tribute to coach Tom Crean and a group of young men who have helped bring back a historic college basketball program on so many levels,” athletic director Fred Glass said in a statement released by the university. “I’m so proud of Hoosier Nation. Our fans supported the program through difficult times and have always played a major role.” Indiana has been one of the nation’s leaders in attendance for decades. It has finished among the top 20 nationally every year since 1972. Last season was a major milestone. While the Hoosiers won their first outright Big Ten crown in two decades and spent much of the season ranked No. 1, they led the Big Ten in attendance for the first time since 2001-02. The Big Ten was ranked No. 1 in the nation among conferences.

Purdue head coach Darrell Hazell surveys Ross-Ade Stadium prior to his team’s media day

Sunday in West Lafayette. The Boilers open the season Aug. 31 at Cincinnati.

Purdue, Hazell looking to rebuild WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — Darrell Hazell has been busy since football camp opened earlier this month. The new Purdue coach spent his first week installing the offense. This week, he’ll talk about execution. Next week, the message is anybody’s guess, but you can bet Hazell will have one. He always does. The man who turned around Kent State’s moribund program is now trying to lay the foundation for a revival of Boilermakers football. Attendance has declined and the program is struggling to remain competitive with its Big Ten counterparts. A year ago, the Boilermakers were supposed to contend for a league title. Instead, they finished fourth in the Leaders Division and Danny Hope was fired. Hazell has a plan to fix all this, and he’s trying to be patient as the new philosophies take hold. “I think they’ve done a great job of really just getting locked in and understanding the effort that it takes to get better,” he said about his team. “We have to keep getting better.” Here are five keys to the Boilermakers season.

1. GETTING ACCLIMATED: Hazell came to West Lafayette with a mandate to change the direction of a program that has reached back-to-back bowl games but has mostly underachieved since Drew Brees led the 2000 Boilermakers to the Rose Bowl. The former Ohio State assistant is taking his can-do attitude to the field, where he expects all of his players to meet his unflinchingly high standards. 2. QUARTERBACK CRADLE: Here, it’s always been about quarterbacks. The succession line includes names such as Dawson, Griese, Danielson, Herrman, Everett and Brees. Who’s next? That’s what Hazell must first decide. The early favorite is Rob Henry, who started seven games in 2010, missed all of 2011 with a knee injury and returned last season. He threw only 38 passes in 2012 as he played multiple positions. But that’s 37 more attempts than the other four Purdue quarterbacks have thrown in college — combined. His toughest competition may come from true freshman Danny Etling, a midyear enrollee who the Boilermakers are hoping adds his name to the long line of big-time quarterbacks.

3. THE TURNOVER: Hazell knows his players must make ball protection a major emphasis. In 2012, the Boilermakers were one of only three Big Ten schools with a negative turnover margin to make a bowl game. They averaged 2.1 turnovers per game and finished with a turnover margin of minus-2. In the spring game, the struggles continued as Purdue’s offensive players threw three picks and lost two fumbles. A handful of other passes also were batted down. If that trend continues into the fall, the Boilermakers will be in big trouble. 4. DEFENDING THEIR TURF: A year ago, Purdue thought a favorable schedule — seven home games — and having Ohio State and Penn State ineligible for postseason play might be enough to get them to Indianapolis for the Big Ten championship game. But after winning three non-conference games at Ross-Ade Stadium, the Boilermakers managed only one more home win, in the finale against rival Indiana. This year, they have seven more home games with an eighth game in Bloomington. But the Boilers SEE BOILERS, PAGE B2

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Mr. Irrelevant is suddenly becoming very important in Indianapolis’ new offense. So is the little-known Dominique Jones. With an injury to Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener not yet cleared to play Sunday because of a concussion, Jones and Justice Cunningham are working overtime at tight end for a team that that is trying to implement a new, power-running offense. “Me and D.J. are probably out there a lot more than we’re used to being out there,” said Cunningham, the last pick, No. 254, in April’s draft. “They’re acting as if nothing happened, picking it up and just moving right along.” This is not what first-year offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton envisioned when he left Stanford to return to the NFL. He looked at the Colts roster and saw an opportunity to use Allen and Fleener in double-tight end sets. Allen, a third-round pick last year, thrived in Indianapolis. He caught 45 passes for 521 yards, leading all rookie tight ends in both categories and breaking Ken Dilger’s franchise rookie record for receptions by a tight end. Fleener, a second-round pick last year out of Stanford, had 26 receptions for 281 yards and two TDs as a rookie. His familiarity with Hamilton’s offense put him ahead of his teammates at the start of training camp. On Sunday, though, Fleener lost a fumble on the second series of the game and dropped a touchdown pass in the back of the end zone, forcing the Colts to settle for a field goal, before being diagnosed with a concussion. The combination of Allen and Fleener was billed by some as the best young tight end tandem in the league. But the injuries have created questions around the Colts. Allen is expected to miss a couple of weeks with a right foot injury. Fleener was cleared for contact Wednesday and did practice in full pads, but he has not yet been cleared to play.



BOILERS: Better defense critical for Purdue to show improvement FROM PAGE B1

have to defend more than their home turf — they must actually defend. The Boilermakers also allowed 31.2 points, 415.8 total yards, 181.9 yards rushing and 233.9 yards passing per game. The Boilermakers finished in the bottom four of the Big Ten in each category. 5. LEADING THE WAY: Purdue has plenty of experienced players returning this

season — Henry, Gary Bush, Gabe Holmes, Akeem Hunt, Ricardo Allen and Landon Feichter — to name a few. The question is who will emerge as this team’s leaders. Robert Marve and Kawann Short were the leaders over the past few seasons. Now that they’ve moved on, the hardest part may be trying to find replacements for guys that were well-respected within the locker room walls.




Cutler progessing in new system CHICAGO (AP) — The first step for Jay Cutler was a bit wobbly. Maybe this one will be a little smoother. The Chicago Bears meet the San Diego Chargers on Thursday, and all eyes will remain on Cutler as he tries to adapt to new coach Marc Trestman’s offense. “We’re moving along,” Cutler said. “I don’t think I can pinpoint exactly where we’re at, but we’re definitely getting better each and every day. Like I just said, there’s ups and downs and there’s positives and negatives. We’re trying to look at the negatives and try to fix those as quickly as possible and continue to find more and more positives each and every day.” The Chargers are in a

similar spot. Both teams are adjusting to new head coaches, and both are trying to build off shaky preseason openers. The Bears fell 24-17 at Carolina. San Diego got pounded 31-10 by Seattle. “We have to minimize the mistakes we made from the other night’s game,” Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. “We can’t make the same mistake twice. The first preseason game you do not game plan a ton for. This game we’ll put in a few different wrinkles. We’ve seen the team play in a game once, so we have a good idea of what they do or what they did. We just need to keep getting better every day and be ready for the opener.”“ For the Bears, there was plenty of room for improve-

ment from the Carolina game. Cutler got intercepted by Josh Norman on Chicago’s first play from scrimmage, setting up a Panthers touchdown, on a pass intended for Alshon Jeffery. The ball was thrown to the wrong shoulder, leading to the pick. Cutler settled down to complete 6 of 8 passes for 56 yards, but Chicago managed only a field goal in the first three quarters, not what the Bears envisioned when they hired Trestman. The brought him in to replace the fired Lovie Smith, hoping he can maximize their strongarmed quarterback and lead the Bears back to the playoffs after they missed out for the fifth time in six years.


Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (6) aims to get better using the new offense installed by coach Marc Trestman.

Ryan Newman was attempting to pit just as the caution flew for Almirola, and he was penalized for pitting too soon, a call he disputed.

Some Sprint Cup tracks seem to have a way of shaking things up, points-wise and otherwise. When the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup begins, many people point to the races on the short track at Martinsville, Va., and the superspeedway at Talladega, Ala., as the “wild card” events. Because of the likelihood of crashes at those tracks, as well as the difficulty of overcoming mid-race setbacks, the points standings often take wild swings following those events. When it comes to the race to the Chase, those final events of the 26-race regular season that set the 12-driver field for the run to the championship, the road course at Watkins Glen, N.Y., and the short track at Bristol, Tenn., have become the “wild card” tracks. On Sunday, Watkins Glen lived up to its reputation again, as several Chase hopefuls had troubles, while others escaped misfortune and moved up in the standings with just four regular-season races left to run. Kyle Busch was the big winner, taking the checkered flag for his third win of the season and the 27th of his career. That moves him to fifth in the standings and all but assures him of at least a wild card Chase berth. And as long as he remains in the top 10 in points, he’ll have at least nine bonus points, three for each win, when the standings are reset to start the Chase. Defending Cup champion Brad Keselowski, who has appeared at times in recent weeks to be in danger of missing the cut for the Chase, ran Busch hard over the final laps at Watkins Glen, but settled for second place, which moved him up four positions in the standings, to eighth. Even though he’s still winless for the year, he’s the highest he’s been in points since the 11th race of the season, at Darlington Raceway, when he was sixth in the standings. For Busch, the Watkins Glen victory was especially sweet. It came after two straight years of heartbreak on the venerable road course. In 2011, he was leading with two laps to go and lost to Marcos Ambrose. Then last year, he lost the lead on the final lap, again to Ambrose. Had he prevailed, he likely would have gotten into the Chase as a wild card entry. On Sunday, there were no dramatic turns of events on the last couple of laps, which was a great relief to Busch, who


Penske manager, IROC co-operator Barbara Signore dies at 80 Barbara (Rich) Signore, who had a lifelong career in motorsports, died last week at age 80. Mrs. Signore and Jay Signore, her husband of 53 years, worked together at Penske Racing in several capacities, but were best known for operating the International Race of Champions series. The IROC series, which ran from 1973 to 2006, featured champions from various forms of motorsports competing in identically prepared cars. Sam Hornish Jr., who drives for Penske Racing in the Nationwide Series, spoke about Mrs. Signore after finishing second at Watkins Glen on Saturday. “She was a good friend to the IROC Series and all the people at Penske Racing, so we’re going to miss her,” Hornish said.

Tony Stewart chooses Austin Dillon as his Pure Michigan 400 replacement When it came to choosing a driver to fill the seat of his No. 14 Chevrolet this weekend at Michigan International Speedway, Tony Stewart chose a driver who shares his passions for dirt-track racing, hunting and fishing. Austin Dillon, who won the Mudsummer Classic Camping World Truck Series race at Stewart’s Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, is a full-time driver in the Nationwide Series, where he runs the No. 3 Chevrolet fielded by his grandfather, Richard Childress, and is atop the points standings. Sunday’s race will be the 10th career Cup start for the 23-year-old racer. Last Sunday at Watkins Glen, veteran road racer Max Papis drove Stewart’s No. 14 to a 15th-place finish. No decision has been announced as far as

who will replace Stewart in other upcoming Sprint Cup races. Stewart, who broke his right tibia and fibula in a sprint car crash at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa, on Aug. 5, was released from the hospital late Sunday. He said in a team release that he has lots of confidence in Dillon. “His background in dirt racing is an asset, and off the track we share many of the same interests, specifically, hunting and fishing,” Stewart said. “I know he’ll perform well at Michigan, and I’m just as confident in his ability to properly represent Mobil 1 and Bass Pro Shops throughout the race weekend.”

Teacher looks for a lesson in tipping DEAR ABBY: I am a teacher, and at the end of the year I receive many gifts and notes of appreciation from the parents of my students. This year, one of my parents, a beautician, presented me with a gift certificate for a facial. Last week I made the appointment and was given a fantastic facial by this mom. I didn’t tip her afterward because I wasn’t sure how to handle a gift like this. Was I right in not tipping her? Since this was a gift from her, I’m hoping I didn’t insult her by not offering one. If I was wrong, I’d like to go back and give her the tip she would have earned. — WONDERING TEACHER DEAR TEACHER: Because the gift certificate came from the person who delivered the service to you, you did not insult her by not offering a gratuity. (In fact, had you offered one for her gift, it might have been taken




DEAR ABBY: My 14-year-old granddaughter, “Grace,” has confided to me that she’s smoking pot and drinking. When I asked her why, she said she does it to make herself feel better. I told

her she has a serious problem, and something has to be done. Grace doesn’t want to tell her parents and, frankly, I think they would just yell and scream and not understand what’s really going on. At this point, I don’t know what to do. What should I do? — IN A FIX IN CALIFORNIA DEAR IN A FIX: You’re correct that this is serious, and something does have to be done. Alcohol and weed are not the solutions to your granddaughter’s problem. Self-medicating won’t fix what’s wrong and could make her problems worse. Grace needs to be evaluated and diagnosed by a physician. The way to ensure that it happens is to talk to her parents about the fact that you’re worried about her. If you make clear that Grace is getting stoned to “feel better” and not partying, they may be less inclined to react with anger.

Low-dose vaginal estrogen carries little risk Robb-Nicholson, editor-inchief of the Harvard Women’s Health Watch. She pointed out that vaginal estrogen acts mostly in the vagina. It relieves vaginal symptoms, including vaginal dryness, burning, and pain ASK with sexual DOCTOR K. intercourse. It does not relieve hot ashes. (One Dr. Anthony flexception a vaginal Komaroff isring, called Femring. It delivers so much estrogen in the vagina that some of it is absorbed into the blood and therefore has effects throughout the body.) Low-dose vaginal estrogen

is available in several forms: creams, tablets and other kinds of vaginal rings. Vaginal creams are applied to the vulva or in the vagina. Vaginal tablets (Vagifem) are inserted in the vagina. And a flexible vaginal ring, called Estring, is worn continuously and replaced every few months. The Vagifem tablet contains the lowest amount of estrogen. Estring delivers just a bit more. Vaginal estrogen creams are more concentrated; the amount of estrogen that a woman absorbs varies. Vaginal application releases little estrogen into the bloodstream. As a result, it has less risk of side effects than systemic estrogen. So far, no well-designed clinical trials have evaluated systemic risks, such as breast cancer or blood clots, of low-dose vaginal estrogen. But it’s likely that if there are such risks, they are much smaller than the risks related to systemic estrogen.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I use a vaginal estrogen cream for vaginal dryness. Does it have the same risks as hormones taken orally or by skin patch? DEAR READER: Hormone therapy (HT) is estrogen taken alone or with other female hormones to treat the symptoms of menopause. “Systemic” HT involves hormones that enter the blood and travel throughout the body. It is the most effective treatment for postmenopausal hot flashes and vaginal symptoms, including vaginal dryness. Systemic HT is medicine taken by mouth or through the skin by a skin patch or gel. From those locations, it enters into the blood. But systemic HT carries with it a small risk of several serious conditions: heart attacks, stroke, blood clots and some cancers. To find out if there are similar risks associated with vaginal estrogen, I checked in with my colleague Dr. Celeste

the wrong way.) If the facialist who performed the service had been someone other than the mother, a tip would have been in order, but not in a case like this. The proper way to convey your gratitude for her fantastic DEAR facial would to write ABBY be a short note telling her what a treat it Jeanne Phillips was and how much you enjoyed her gift.

One complication of menopause that women don’t often think of is recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs). Vaginal dryness not only causes vaginal symptoms such as discomfort during sex, but also encourages the growth of certain bacteria around the urethra — the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the vagina. If those bacteria get into the urethra, and then into the bladder, a UTI can start. Apart from the high-dose Femring, vaginal estrogen is probably safe even over the long term. And if your main menopausal symptoms are vaginal symptoms, vaginal estrogen is just as effective as systemic HT and less risky. But talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits before you start.

Kayaks vie with barges in Chicago river traffic CHICAGO (AP) — The pod of idling kayakers waited for the right moment to shoot across a jumble of intersecting shipping and tour-boat lanes on the Chicago River, taking their cue from a guide who signaled it was safe by letting loose a motivational battle cry. “Are you ready to paddle down the canyon of steel and glass?” shouted Sam Huff, a bearded 26-year-old, enunciating each word with the gusto of an announcer at a monster truck rally. The eight paddlers in orange and yellow kayaks pushed off through the murky water, dwarfed by skyscrapers and drawing occasional horn blasts from hulking sightseeing boats. After decades of heaping scorn and pollution upon the Chicago River, the city is opening urban waterways

for kayaking and other recreation. Similar efforts are taking shape in other cities, including New York and Grand Rapids, Mich. In Chicago, that vision is running into the reality that the river is still an industrial superhighway for tows and tugs hauling salt, scrap metal and cement in barges strung together in floating fortresses. “We’re just kind of dodging a tragedy,” said Cmdr. Jason Neubauer, commanding officer of a Coast Guard safety unit that helps keep the commercial and recreational traffic out of each other’s way. As many as eight barges a day operate in the city, making several roundtrips. A fleet of water taxis and tour boats makes about 100 daily trips. And now kayakers — up to several hundred on a nice summer

day — are in the mix on a river with narrow passages and high concrete walls that offer few safe refuges for paddlers in trouble. No major accidents have been reported, but there have been near-misses, including kayakers getting too close and having to be rescued by commercial vessels, Neubauer said. Guides for long-established outfitters are well aware of the dangers. First-time kayakers setting off on their own, though, have drawn comparisons to kids playing on railroad tracks or riding bikes on expressways. “It’s a very dangerous thing,” said Lynn Muench, a senior vice president at The American Waterways Operators trade association, describing how it can take around a mile for a barge to stop.

“You’ve got kayakers out there that pull in front of them. And our guys are blowing the whistle, saying, ‘Get out of the way,’ and they sit out there and wave,” she said. Besides the lack of quick maneuverability and blind spots, tugs and tows pushing barges have powerful engines that can pull smaller vessels toward them, especially in narrow channels. There are other hidden hazards on the Chicago River: blasts of wind ripping through gaps between skyscrapers and sewer and storm water runoff chutes that act like giant Jacuzzi jets, pushing unsuspecting kayakers into the middle of the waterway and into the path of much larger vessels. “There’s times when you’ll feel a little


Kayakers pull to the side of the channel as a tour boat passes on the Chicago River in Chicago. After decades of heaping scorn and pollution upon the Chicago River, the city is opening urban waterways for kayaking and other recreation — and running into the reality that the river is still a superhighway for tows and tugs.

uncomfortable,” said Huff, who guides groups for Kayak Chicago, which began offering tours in 1999. He grew up in

Durham, N.C., and kayaked down backwoods rivers before adjusting to the challenges of paddling in an urban setting.
