GOOD MORNING Hunter fatally shot by another near Kokomo KOKOMO (AP) — Authorities say a central Indiana man has been fatally shot in an apparent hunting accident. The Howard County Sheriff’s Department says 28-year-old Joseph Steele of rural Kokomo was shot in the chest Saturday evening and died a short time later. Capt. Greg Hargrove says witnesses told investigators that Steele had been hunting with family members in woods near his home west of Kokomo when the group split up and others lost sight of the victim. One of the hunters fired at what was believed to be a squirrel, only to hear Steele cry out that he had been shot. He was able to talk to others before losing consciousness.
Trooper arrested after restaurant disturbance FISHERS (AP) — An Indiana State Police officer who allegedly waved a gun inside a central Indiana restaurant faces preliminary charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting law enforcement and criminal recklessness with a weapon. Thirty-year-old Christopher Dyer was being held on $10,000 bond Sunday at the Hamilton County Jail in Noblesville. Police were called to the restaurant shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday. They located Dyer nearby walking along a road. Fishers police spokesman Tom Weger tells The Indianapolis Star that Dyer had a blood-alcohol level of 0.27 percent. An Indiana State police spokesman says Dyer had been assigned to road patrol duty at the Evansville post but he’ll be placed on administrative duties and face an internal investigation.

Beam relishes teaching about the outdoors

LAGRANGE — Scott Beam isn’t above putting on a silly hat, or a cowboy hat, or a pioneer hat, just to draw a little attention to himself. But there is a method to his madness. Beam, the resident interpretive naturalist with the LaGrange County Parks Department, is trying to create a teaching moment, a lesson he feels a visitor to a LaGrange County park, most often a child, might benefit from knowing. “I didn’t go to college to be a teacher, but learned a long time ago, I am a teacher,” he explained. It is a job Beam relishes. “To be an interpretive naturalist is to make the realms of the natural world understandable, thought-provoking, and connected

to our own thoughts and hearts,” Beam said. “Education programs do claim the bulk of my time. But the beauty of being a naturalist is that I get to be so much more. I get to do habitat management and preservation. I get to be a writer. I get to be a scientist. Above all, I still get to be a student.” Beam, a native Hoosier, earned a college degree in American history. He came to the LaGrange County Parks Department in 1992 after spending three years working as a naturalist in northern Michigan at the Au Sable Institute. “I got into this work after taking some classes in environ-

Eventually I had friends coming with me on my outings,” he said. “I participated in an internship where we taught elementary youth various realms of environmental education, and many things in my life leading to SEE BEAM, PAGE A6
KENDALLVILLE — A Butler woman died Sunday as a result of injuries she received in a single-vehicle accident Saturday, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department said. Susan Allen, 52, of Butler was pronounced dead at about 2 a.m. Sunday at Parkview Regional Medical Center, Fort Wayne, from injuries she sustained in a motorcycle crash on S.R. 8 near C.R. 600E Saturday at about 6 p.m., said Noble County sheriff’s Deputy Lesley Fox. A motorcycle driven by Jack Allen, 49, of Butler — Susan Allen’s husband — was eastbound on S.R. 8 behind a pickup pulling a trailer, Fox said. The pickup started to turn in to a driveway just over a rise in the road, which was obscured from Jack Allen’s view, Fox said. He came over the rise and tried to stop, but the motorcycle’s brakes locked up. He laid the motorcycle down, and Susan was ejected. The motorcycle was at first believed to have struck either the pickup or trailer, but actually struck neither, Fox said. Susan Allen was transported by Noble County EMS to Parkview Regional, Fox said. Jack Allen suffered minor injuries, and rode with Susan to the hospital.
Waterloo asks public opinion on new plan BY AARON ORGAN email@example.com
WATERLOO — The town of Waterloo will unveil its long-awaited comprehensive plan to residents this evening. The town will hold a public input session at New Hope Christian Church, 900 S. Wayne St. at 6:30 p.m. After detailing a draft of the plan, town officials will look for input from residents to prioritize items within the plan. Residents essentially will be able to vote for which general projects the town should invest in ahead of others. The idea is to learn what the public wants from local government, Town Manager DeWayne Nodine explained. “We’ll show people what we’ve come up with, in terms of general

• projects, and let people at the meeting tell us what the highest priority items they think are,” he said. The town worked to develop
the plan for a year, identifying projects that fall under two general umbrellas — land use development and public facilities. Under the land use development section of the plan, the town has subsections including planning, residential, commercial, industrial, natural lands, recreational land, annexation and redevelopment. Items under those themes include: developing an overlay zoning district for the town’s historic area to protect character and build tourism, investigate modern affordable housing options, consider a TIF district for the downtown or promote “green” initiatives, among others. The public facilities plan includes subsections for public ways and vehicle traffic circula-
tion, public ways and pedestrian circulation, public places and structures, public lands, public utilities and capital improvements. Items the town has identified under those themes are: making the town more user-friendly by finding a signage program for the downtown, parks and the Amtrak station; plan, design and construct the town’s planned Crossroads Trail that will connect from Auburn to Steuben County; remodel the Town Hall; or explore the development of a storm water fee, along others. Nodine said presentation of the plan should take roughly 20 minutes. Residents then will be encouraged to vote for which projects are most enticing. For more information on the plan, contact Nodine at 837-7428.
$100,000 grant will help teen parent center BY GRACE HOUSHOLDER firstname.lastname@example.org
KENDALLVILLE — Ten years of work by staff and volunteers at Life and Family Services has resulted in a $100,000 grant for its endowment fund. The Dekko Foundation last week awarded a $100,000 Model of Organizational Sustainability and Effectiveness grant to the Teen Parent Early Learning Center, a program of Life and Family Services. The $100,000 must remain in the endowment and cannot be spent. However, the interest earned each year will be used for the Teen Parent Early Learning Center’s operating expenses. Building a strong endowment fund increases the nonprofit’s solid financial footing, said Donna Conrad, executive director of LFS. Carol Blackman, the former director of the TPELC, worked on the grant for the first eight years. “This grant means that high school and single college students have scholarship support so that they can afford the best care for their child while they complete their education,” Blackman said. “What a wonderful opportunity for our childcare and our community!” The center has been state-licensed, nationally accredited, and at the highest level of Paths to Quality (a state rating system for child care centers) for a number of years. Ten years SEE TEEN, PAGE A6

Police Blotter • Train strikes car, injuring woman BUTLER — A Garrett woman sustained injuries while standing near a car that was hit by a railroad train early Sunday morning, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department reported. Jessica Corbin, 28, was struck by flying debris and suffered contusions and lacerations to her upper right arm and right shin. She was transported to DeKalb Health hospital in Auburn for treatment. The incident began when Jason Freeman, 27, of Garrett was driving eastbound on U.S. 6 at 3:16 a.m. and swerved to miss a deer crossing the roadway near the DeKalb County Humane Shelter west of Butler. Freeman lost control of his 2004 Chevy Impala, and it went off the south side of the road approximately 150 feet, striking the Norfolk Southern rail lines. Freeman told police he tried to free the vehicle from the tracks, but was unable to do so. He and his passenger, Corbin, were standing close to the vehicle, 1-2 minutes later when it was struck by a eastbound train. Freeman was not injured. The sheriff’s department was assisted by the Butler Police Department, Butler Fire Department and DeKalb EMS.

Swallows, well known and not well known Swallows, here today, gone tomorrow, or it seemed toward the end of July this year. Dozens of tree swallows gathered and perched on the power lines across the road from our marsh every afternoon during July. Every afternoon, that is, until one day almost the end of the month. That day no swallows came to perch on the wires across from our marsh. They were gone, every one. Swallows are early fall NEIL CASE migrants. But I don’t remember ever seeing such an abrupt disappearance of swallows nor of their departure being that early. It was late summer not even into fall. I’d been watching the tree swallows. They were so numerous, so conspicuous. But after they were gone, I realized I wasn’t seeing any other swallows, either. There were no barn swallows or cliff swallows circling over our pasture and hay field during the day. Both had nested at our barn, one on the inside, the other under the eaves outside. There weren’t any bank or rough-winged swallows around the old gravel pit south of us either, though those had both nested there. I didn’t think about the disappearance of the swallows except to note it as an early sign of the coming fall. But then one day this month I was walking in our pasture and suddenly realized there were swallows circling overhead. They were barn swallows, all that I could identify as they swirled about. But they were the first swallows I

had seen in two weeks. Now they’re gone again. Swallows are well known, and yet they are not well known. Everybody who recognizes a robin or a sparrow recognizes a swallow. But how many people know that the purple martin is a swallow and that the chimney swift is not? Asked to describe a swallow, most people would say they are small and slender with long, pointed wings, little bills, short legs and small feet. They would also say a swallow has long outer tail feathers giving them a forked tail, a swallow tail. Yet the only swallow with a swallow tail is the barn swallow. Tree, cliff, bank, northern rough-winged, and the western violet-green and cave swallows all have notched tails, not forked. Swallows’ bills are short, stubby, but they are broad. Swallows fly with their bills wide open, mouths like wide scoops, and with those scoops they catch mosquitoes and other insects as they fly. Swallows are flying insect traps, which is well known and makes them popular birds. To feed young swallows in the nest, adult swallows regurgitate a soup of mucous and partially digested insects and pour it into the mouths of the nestlings. Two species of swallows, bank and northern rough-winged, use their little bills and feet to dig tunnel as much as 3 feet deep into banks, then build their nests at the ends of the tunnels. As a boy, I liked to stand on the bank of the river near my home and watch bank and northern rough-winged swallows swoop in and out beneath me. Most song or little birds that migrate, robins, sparrows, flycatchers,

• warblers, fly at night, then feed and rest during the day. Swallows feed as they fly, traveling by day and roosting at night in the cattails of a marsh or in dense shrubbery or trees. Gathering on power lines or tree branches, then dropping into cattails at dusk led at one time to the misconception that swallows burrowed into to mud and hibernated through the winter. One other misconception about swallows, that their spring migration is precisely timed. An example, the swallows returning to the mission at San Juan Capistrano on March 19 every year. The travels of swallows, including those to San Juan, like the travels of robins and other migrants, are stimulated by day length and altered by weather, and in the case of swallows also by the hatching of insects.

DeKalb Health donates to development agency AUBURN — DeKalb Health has pledged $30,000 for the second time to the DeKalb County Economic Development Partnership. The money will be distributed annually in payments of $10,000 from its Community Benefit Fund through 2016. “DeKalb Health is one of those major contributors that have helped in a variety of ways through its leadership and support,” said Ken McCrory, executive director for the partnership. “This donation is particularly instrumental because of a matching program with the Cole Foundation where these dollars will be included.” “Our hospital is an asset for our community with regard to economic development,” said DeKalb Health CEO Fred Price. “Economic development improves the health of our community. We are here to work with existing or new businesses and help them grow.”

Emails obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request show Bill Bennett had much more favor among Daniels and his advisers. In January 2010, when Daniels discovered the board of education had changed the state’s textbook rules to allow Bennett’s book, he quickly asked how soon his advisers could get copies of “The Last Best Hope” in classrooms. “This is excellent to hear … now someone make my day and tell me that his book is becoming the textbook of choice in our state and I’ll buy beers for everyone,” he wrote in a Jan. 27, 2010, email to then-schools chief Tony Bennett, Bennett’s former chief of staff, Todd Huston, and David Shane, a longtime Daniels colleague and Republican donor.

Cairo becomes battle zone CAIRO (AP) — Soldiers fired their rifles in the air to keep a crowd from attacking supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi as they were being taken, one by one, out of the Al-Fath mosque in Cairo where they had been besieged by security forces overnight. One man in the crowd, however, was able to reach over the soldiers and strike a detained protester with a stick. Others chanted against Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group. The scene encapsulated the venomous mood in Cairo. The streets of Egypt’s capital have become a deadly battleground between Morsi’s supporters and backers of the military that overthrew him. The crisis has severed friendships and, in some cases, turned neighbor against neighbor in the city of more than 18 million people. More than 450 people have been killed in Cairo over the past four days, just over half the country’s nationwide death toll during the week of violence. Hundreds of those victims died when Egyptian security forces attacked two pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo on Wednesday. How events play out in Cairo could largely determine whether Egypt can step back from the brink of chaos. Over the weekend, street
Egyptian army soldiers take their positions on top and next to their armored vehicles while guarding an entrance to Tahrir square, in Cairo, Egypt, Friday. Egypt is bracing for more violence after the Muslim Brotherhood called for nationwide marches after
battles raged throughout the metropolis, once a stable corner of the Middle East. Armed civilians and security forces fought armed Morsi supporters and protesters. People openly fired automatic rifles and pistols at one another on main overpasses and roads. Most residents cowered in their homes, many staying clear of windows and balconies. Metro stations near protest sites are closed,

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Sen. Mark Pryor likes to tell voters that he always puts Arkansas first, borrowing the campaign slogan associated with his family for decades. In Wyoming, Liz Cheney bets that her famous father’s name will be gold in her Senate race. And in Louisiana, Sen. Mary Landrieu counts on her kin’s New Orleans ties to help lift her to re-election in a tough race. Family does matter in the runup to next fall’s Senate elections: Candidates are wielding famous political pedigrees in a number of races that could determine whether Democrats maintain control in the 2014 elections. Famous last names mean automatic name recognition and, typically, an easier time raising money. Beyond that, and 15 months before Election Day, it’s unclear whether family ties will translate into votes next fall. For several Democrats, their deep family roots in conservative-leaning states could help them make the case that they are in touch
with local values and act in constituents’ best interests as they seek to rebut Republican arguments that they are nothing more than rubber stamps for President Barack Obama’s policies. Yet, with congressional approval ratings dipping to record lows, a political pedigree also could turn into a liability if voters decide they’d rather have some new blood in the Senate. History is filled with famous political families with national images — the Kennedys, Rockefellers and Bushes are among them — and there are similar political dynasties in individual states across the nation. This year, family ties figure prominently in Arkansas, where Pryor’s father, David, served the state as governor and U.S. senator, and in Louisiana, where Landrieu’s father, Moon, was New Orleans’ mayor during the 1970s and her brother, Mitch, now leads the city. In Wyoming, former Vice President Dick Cheney’s eldest daughter has galvanized the state’s

Residents have locked entrances to their apartment buildings, and police stations and prisons have come under attack. The city, normally bustling at all hours of the day and night, now slips into an eerie quiet interrupted at times by
gunfire during an 11-hour curfew that starts at 7 p.m. The usually gridlocked streets are devoid of nighttime traffic. Vigilantes and police dressed in civilian clothes stand at makeshift roadblocks, frisking people without identifying themselves. Many brandish guns. The Interior Ministry warned civilians Sunday against breaking the curfew to man checkpoints.

that you’re not part of the national party cabal,” Anzalone said. Among the other Senate races featuring politicians with pedigrees: • Alaska: First-term Democratic Sen. Mark Begich has been targeted by Republicans in a state that hasn’t supported a Democrat for president since 1964. Begich is the son of the late Rep. Nick Begich, who served in Congress before his October 1972 death in a plane crash. • Georgia: Democrat Michelle Nunn, the daughter of former Sen. Sam Nunn, is trying to win an open seat in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to the Senate in more than a decade. • West Virginia: Republican Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, the daughter of former three-term Gov. Arch Moore, is heavily favored to succeed retiring Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller. Capito’s father, now 90, pleaded guilty to political corruption charges in 1990 and served 2½ years in federal prison. Democrats have yet to field a strong candidate.

political scene by seeking the seat of Sen. Mike Enzi, a Republican favored by his party’s establishment. In the cases of Pryor and Landrieu, Republicans say voters are savvy enough to judge sitting senators on their performance rather than their pedigree. “Name ID has helped Landrieu and Pryor during their careers, but they are pretty far along into their own careers now and they have a voting record,” said Brian Walsh, a Republican strategist and former aide to the National Senatorial Campaign Committee. John Anzalone, an Alabama-based Democratic pollster, counters that it will be more difficult for Republicans to attach the Democratic incumbents to Obama next year because the president will not be on the ballot. He said many children of prominent politicians, especially in places less favorable to Democrats, have been successful by sticking to the mold of their parents — not the party’s leader. “There’s always this need to distinguish yourself,

A husband gives golfing advice BY ERNIE WITHAM
“All is fair in love and golf.” — Proverb The revelation that golf carts do not have four-wheel drive came to me one morning as I tried to find my ball in the mud, which I found out later was actually not part of the golf course at all but rather the site of a pending condo project, half a block away. I must have missed the out-of-bounds marker when I was crossing the freeway. It was just one more lesson in the complex world of golf. I remember the first time I played. My twosome was paired up with another twosome. After my tee-off on the first hole went somewhat awry, landing on the clubhouse roof, one of the other players asked if I had a handicap. I thought his joke in poor taste and threatened him with my 9-iron. Now, of course, I realize that having a handicap is a good thing, even if it is 52. Learning the rules and language of golf is crucial. It separates the obvious beginner from someone just having another bad day. Therefore, I have from experience compiled
a few lessons that may help other novices. If the instructor tells you to address the ball, do not take out a pen and write “to green” on the ball. Try not to stand on asphalt in the summer while wearing golf shoes, unless you are with a very strong friend. The easiest way to find a lost golf ball is to ask the guy limping in the next fairway. Never insist that your spouse golf. It can lead to only one of two results. One, she/he plays really badly, complains for four hours and ruins your whole day. Or, he/she plays really well, offers four hours of suggestions on how you might do better and ruins your whole day. A double bogey is not a strong drink from the movie “Casablanca.” It means two over par. And not a bad score at all. If they have a name for it, it’s a good score. There is no name for a 15. A chip is not something left behind by a foraging cow. That’s a flap. A chip is a carefully choreographed half-swing that often goes farther than your original drive.

• A divot is a lump of grass that flies up from where the golf ball used to be. A damnit is a lump of grass that flies up in your face as you hit two feet behind the ball. A slice is a ball that curves to the right. A bad slice is a ball that lands behind you. A tough lie has double meanings. It’s when you have to come up with an excuse — for the umpteenth time — as to why it took six hours to play nine holes and why your breath smells like nacho chips and beer. It also refers to a difficult spot to have to hit your ball from. For instance, the base of a tree, the crook of a tree or the upper branches of a tree. Heavy rough is the area along the edge of
the fairway just before your ball is legally out of bounds. A good rule of thumb — if the guy beside you is barbecuing, you’re probably out of bounds. And finally, Club Rules imply that you are not penalized by foreign objects on the fairway. Therefore, if you knock out a tourist with your drive, you are allowed to move your ball one club’s length from the body. Now that you understand some of the basics, you should be able to better appreciate the game. And you can focus on some of the more intriguing idiosyncrasies of golf, like if it’s completely made out of metal, why do they call it a 3-wood? (C)2013 BY CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL PUBLISHING, LLC

BEAM: Naturalist serves as public face for parks FROM PAGE A1
that point became clear to me. I must teach, and have been doing so ever since. My goal is to light a passion in the mind for outside and the wild things.” LaGrange County’s first parks, Delt Church Park and David Rogers Memorial Park, opened in the early 1970s. After that the parks department more or less sat still until current parks department director Mike Metz arrived in 1983. Metz has been able to grow the park system — it now includes 10 parks and covers more than 600 acres as well as employing five full-time staff members. Metz said, however, it is Beam who took on the needed role of being the public face of the parks department. It’s a role Beam works hard at. “I employ many unusual methods to teach the lessons

of nature — puppets, plush toys, costuming, and lots of role play,” he said. “It is exciting to be recognized away from a park and greeted by smiles and hugs. I am now teaching children of children I have taught and I love it. I hope I have encouraged many young people and adults to care for the wild plants and animals, to put their caring into actions that benefit wild habitats, to respect the lives of the people that worked hard to improve our opportunities, to get outside more.” Beam’s office is on the second floor of the Maple Wood Nature Center, deep in the 100-plus acre woods that is teeming with wildlife. The center was built to maximize a visitor’s exposure to the natural world around it, with large glass walls that allow easy observations of nature. His job and the role
of the parks department in LaGrange County, are, in Beam’s words, of vital importance to its residents. “There is significant wild land here,” Beam said. “In this age of rapid development and invasive organisms, ecosystems do not take care of themselves since there are so many pressures on them. We are closely tied to the wild things and as we protect them we ultimately protect our own future. “Public wild lands are important for quality of life,” he explains. “When you think of recreation do you think of getting outside? When you think of a family celebration, do you want to be enclosed in a building? What do you think of when you think of a place of healing? Public land, shared by the wild and the caretakers, has benefits for which there is no substitute.”

TEEN: TPELC is the first to reach foundation’s goal FROM PAGE A1
ago the Dekko Foundation challenged 52 locations that offered early childhood education to reach the goals established by the foundation’s MOOSE grant. The TPELC is the first to reach that goal. “For 10 years our leaders went all out!” Conrad said. “They wanted to meet the growth and learning needs of children and sustain the program’s work through sound financial practices.” “Even if we never received the money, all the positive changes that we made as a result of this challenge made all our efforts worth it,” she added. “We’re not just a free service anymore. We offer training for entire families and that training is designed to break the cycle of poverty and dependence,” said past board president Richard Anderson. Kevin Deary, an Indiana Youth Institute consultant who has worked with this agency for more than
five years, told LFS staff members, “When I met you, you were chasing a grant. Now you’re chasing excellence!” A surprise visit to LFS by Dekko Foundation staff to make the presentation was the first of six steps in completing the MOOSE grant. Each year for five years the Dekko Foundation will match up to $10,000 of new funds raised by the agency for the endowment. The interest earned will be used to pay the difference between what it costs for child care each week (more than $200 per child) and what the teen parent pays ($50). The TPELC enables teen parents to reach their educational goals. Staff efforts focus on helping break the cycle of poverty, mentoring, increased parenting skills and role modeling. “Many of these teen parents don’t experience this anywhere else in their lives,” Conrad said. The teen parents are
required to volunteer 10 hours each year and have the opportunity to reduce their $50 weekly fee to $20 if they participate in the parenting education activities offered by the Pregnancy and Parenting Resource Center. Debbie Derby is the director. “The Teen Parent Early Learning Center is far more than babysitting,” Derby said. “Developmentally appropriate learning experiences are the focus for each child; the children are receiving a strong educational foundation as their parents are completing their educational goals.” To nurture young learners, the staff also is participating in “Bloom!” provided by the Dekko Foundation.

CAIRO (AP) — Security forces fired tear gas at a prison truck Sunday in an attempt to free a police officer from rioting detainees, killing at least 36 suspects rounded up during streets clashes between Islamist supporters of the country’s ousted president and police, officials said. The deaths of the prisoners, captured during the fierce fighting in recent days around Cairo’s Ramses Square, came as Egypt’s army leader Gen. Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi vowed that the military would not tolerate further violence after four days of nationwide clashes left nearly 900 people dead. While el-Sissi called for the inclusion of Islamists in the government, security forces detained Muslim Brotherhood members in raids aimed at stopping more planned rallies supporting ousted President Mohammed Morsi — which the military-backed government says fuels the violent unrest. The killed detainees were part of a prison truck convoy of some 600 people heading to Abu Zaabal prison in northern Egypt, the officials told
The Associated Press. Detainees in one of the trucks rioted Sunday night and managed to capture a police officer inside, the officials said. Security forces fired tear gas into the truck in hopes of freeing the badly beaten officer, the officials said. The officials said those killed died from suffocating on the gas. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists. However, the officials’ version of events contradicted reports about the incident carried by state media. The official website of Egyptian state television reported that the deaths took place after security forces clashed with militants near the prison and detainees came under fire while trying to escape. The official MENA state news agency also said the trucks came under attack from gunmen. State media also said all those killed and the gunmen belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that Morsi hails from. The officials who spoke to AP said some of the detainees belonged to the Brotherhood, while others didn’t. The differences in the accounts could not be immediately reconciled Sunday night. NOVENA TO ST. JUDE May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, gloriﬁed, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever, Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, helper of the hopeless, pray for us. Say this prayer 9 times a day for 9 days. It has never been known to fail. Publication must be promised. Thank you St. Jude. J.T.
The officials who spoke to the AP said that the detainees were rounded up during the past two days of street violence around Cairo’s Ramses square, clashes that killed scores of people. On Saturday alone, clashes between Morsi supporters and police killed 79 people, according to a government tally released Sunday and carried by MENA. That raised the death toll for four days of unrest across the country to nearly 900 people killed. El-Sissi, speaking earlier Sunday at a gathering of top military commanders and police chiefs, again said the army has no intention of seizing power in the Arab world’s most populous country. El-Sissi removed Morsi in the July 3 coup after four days of mass rallies by millions of Egyptians who demanded the president step down. “We will not stand by silently watching the destruction of the country and the people or the torching the nation and terrorizing the citizens,” el-Sissi said in a speech aired on state television. El-Sissi also said Islamists must be included in the country’s politics moving forward. A military timetable calls for the nation’s constitution to be amended and for presidential and parliamentary elections to be held in 2014. El-Sissi’s remarks come ahead of an anticipated harsher stance by the military-backed government toward the Brotherhood. The Cabinet held an emergency meeting to discuss potentially banning the group, a long-outlawed organization that swept to power in the country’s first democratic elections a year ago.

Luck keys Colts’ win Tigers EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Andrew Luck threw for 107 yards and two touchdowns and the Indianapolis Colts responded to criticism by owner Jim Irsay with a 20-12 exhibition victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night. Irsay used Twitter to apologize to fans for the Colts’ abysmal showing in a 44-20 loss to Buffalo last week, and the Colts (1-1) improved markedly, with some help from the bubbling and suddenly injury-concerned Giants (1-1). New York wide receiver Victor Cruz (bruised heel) and starting center David Baas (sprained knee) left the game and the Giants did little on offense. Not seeing much pressure, Luck threw touchdown passes of 28 yards to Reggie Wayne and 18 to T.Y. Hilton in leading the Colts to 17 points. Adam Vinatieri added a 52-yard field goal as Indianapolis scored on three consecutive series. Backup kicker Brandon McManus added a 50-yard field goal in the second half. New York’s Josh Brown kicked field goals of 25, 27 and 45 yards in the first half. The last one came after Giants coach Tom Coughlin was flagged for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the previous play for coming down the sideline and yelling at the side judge for a supposed non-call. Brown added a 47-yard field goal with 8:43 to play to close out the scoring. Luck, who led the Colts to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth in his rookie season, completed 9 of 13 passes, but the one most will remember will be the gift touchdown courtesy of veteran Giants cornerback Aaron Ross, who was starting for the injured Corey Webster. On a second-and-3 play from the 28, Luck underthrew Wayne on a pattern down the right sideline. A backpedalling Ross was in perfect position to intercept the ball, but he lost his balance, had the ball slip out of his hands

and then hit his leg and pop up into the air. Wayne came down with it in the end zone for a 7-3 lead. An interception by new cornerback Greg Toler on Eli Manning’s third-down pass on the ensuring series gave the ball to the Colts at the New York 41. Vinatieri made his 52-yarder with about 10 yards to spare after three plays moved the ball to the 34. Luck finished off his night, leading the Colts on a seven-play,
60-yard drive that featured two third-down conversions on passes to Hilton and a 15-yard facemask penalty against Ross. Both passes to Hilton covered 18 yards, with the second one coming on a third-and-11 from the New York 18. Hilton beat Jayron Hosley to the right corner of the end zone and Luck floated a perfect pass over the outstretched hands of the cornerback. The play was reviewed and the touchdown ruling confirmed.
DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera hit his 40th home run and had an RBI single to help Max Scherzer become baseball’s first 18-game winner this season as the Detroit Tigers beat the Kansas City Royals 6-3 Sunday to win the five-game series. The reigning Triple Crown winner became the third player since 1921 to have at least 40 homers and 120 RBIs while batting .350 or better through 116 games, joining Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx, according to STATS. Scherzer (18-1) gave up two runs on five hits over eight innings. Scherzer and Roger Clemens are the pitchers since 1919 to have 18 wins in their first 19 decisions, STATS said. Clemens did it with the New York Yankees in 2001, when he finished 20-3. Royals manager Ned Yost said before the game that intentionally walking Cabrera wasn’t a good option because Prince Fielder and Victor Martinez hit behind him. After Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first inning and a run-scoring single in the third, Yost chose to give Cabrera a free pass in the fifth inning with a runner on third and Fielder followed with an inning-ending groundout. Cabrera has eight homers in 13 games. Cabrera leads the majors in batting (.360) and RBIs (120). His home run pulled him within four of Baltimore’s Chris Davis for the big league lead. Cabrera connected a day after his leadoff home run in the ninth inning beat Kansas City. The Royals lost three of five this weekend and left Comerica Park in third place, trailing the AL Centralleading Tigers by 8½ games.
Logano holds off Harvick at Michigan BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Joey Logano gave Ford a Sprint Cup sweep in Michigan — and enabled team owner Roger Penske to celebrate a victory in his home state. Now Logano can start to envision a happy finish to what has been an eventful season for the 23-year-old driver. “We’re close, we’re close,” Logano said. “What a great place to win — what a great time to win, being in Ford’s backyard.” Logano boosted his chances of reaching the Chase for the Sprint Cup, winning for the first time this season in a fuel-mileage race at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday. Logano and Kevin Harvick both breezed past Mark Martin with just over three laps to go in the 400-mile, 200-lap race. Martin had been trying to stretch fuel, but when he faltered, Logano was able to hold off Harvick. The win put Logano in 13th place in the standings. He’s seven points behind Martin Truex Jr. for the second wild card. It’s been an up-and-down year for Logano. He and teammate Brad Keselowski were docked 25 points each after NASCAR inspectors confiscated parts from the rear suspensions of their cars before the April 13 race at Texas. More recently, Logano has had to recover Joey Logano celebrates after winning the from back-to-back 40th-place showings at NASCAR Sprint Cup series Pure Michigan Daytona and Loudon, but he’s now right in the middle of a wild race for the final Chase spots. goes wrong — knock on wood — we’ve been “A roller coaster, to say the least,” Logano pretty good.

Wainwright fans 11 as Cards down Cubs BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright struck out 11 and allowed one run through seven innings, and Jon Jay drove in four runs with a homer and double to lead St. Louis to a 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Matt Carpenter singled in two runs in the third to help back Wainwright (14-7), who was in command and allowed just five hits and one walk after going 0-2 in his previous four starts. Junior Lake drove in the Cubs’ only run with a double in the sixth. Wainwright hadn’t won since July 21 at home against San Diego
and had allowed 14 runs in 28 innings during the span. On Sunday, he faced only one batter over the minimum through the first five innings and only 26 through seven innings. Reds 9, Brewers 1 Homer Bailey allowed one run and three hits in eight innings, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers. Bailey (8-10) won his third straight decision. He walked one and struck out eight, including Juan Francisco three times. The Reds, who lost 2-0 on Saturday night, batted around in the second inning as an erratic
Wily Peralta (8-13) allowed five runs. Cincinnati sent 10 men to the plate in the fifth and tacked on four more runs. White Sox 5, Twins 2 Alexei Ramirez homered and had three RBIs, Hector Santiago won for the first time since June 21 and the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins. Ramirez finished a triple shy of the cycle. He homered to lead off the fifth inning, giving Chicago a 4-2 lead and helping his team win its first road series in more than a month. Jeff Keppinger’s single scored Avisail Garcia to make it 5-2 later
in the fifth. Brian Dozier had two hits and an RBI for Minnesota, which went 2 for 18 with runners in scoring position and lost for the fifth time in six games. Athletics 7, Indians 3 Chris Young and Alberto Callaspo homered in the fifth inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Cleveland Indians. Jed Lowrie, batting leadoff for only the third time this season, had two hits and scored twice for Oakland. Josh Donaldson drove in three runs as the A’s pulled within a half-game of AL West-leading Texas.

Central Noble sporting new look BY AARON ORGAN firstname.lastname@example.org
ALBION â€” Itâ€™s a season of change for Central Nobleâ€™s football team. Coach Jeremy Yates has installed new offensive and defensive systems, notably. But thereâ€™s an energy around the program that is obvious and different, and even though some familiar names are back for the Cougars, make no mistake: this is a new brand of Central Noble football. Itâ€™ll be built on speed and tenacity. Yates said practices have made obvious an abundance of team quickness and strength after players have bought into off-season conditioning. The most apparent difference in this yearâ€™s Cougars is the number of, well, Cougars. Yates said the number of players has spiked this year, so much so that itâ€™ll be the first season on his tenure that no freshman will appear on the varsity depth chart. The influx of players will keep players from being forced to play two ways as has been required in seasons gone by, Yates explained. â€œWe should be much fresher on the field, and I think our competitiveness will be much greater, also,â€? Yates said. Offensively, Brock Noe will handed the keys â€” again â€” to Yatesâ€™ new spread pistol offense. Yates said he expects Noe, after

taking a year off from the position, to handle the responsibility well. Heâ€™ll have backs Jordan Cooper and Robert Smiley sharing touches in the backfield behind him, and three-year varsity player Joel Cochard as his main target at wideout.
The offense will be fast and electric, with the players there to fit the new system. â€œWeâ€™re going to have to use our speed because weâ€™re not real big up front. We have a couple decent-sized guys, but our speed, I think, is probably our biggest asset,â€? Yates said.

linebackers Jacob McDonald and Alex Collins will do the lionâ€™s share of the hitting, and Yates is piling responsibility on the pair. â€œIf weâ€™re going to have any success on the defensive side of the ball, theyâ€™ll be critical for us,â€? he said. Kaleb Mooney is back
as a sophomore cornerback after starting as a freshman last year. â€œThe players have been very upbeat and very positive about everything weâ€™ve done,â€? Yates said. â€œI think theyâ€™re excited to get the season rolling and the coaches are, too.â€?
Barons forge ahead with new coach BY MARK MURDOCK email@example.com
WATERLOO â€” High school football coaches start from scratch and have less than three weeks to have their teams ready for a game. The challenge of preparation is even greater at DeKalb, where Mike DeVos took over as interim coach after he replaced Mike Cochran midway through the first week of practice. The Barons lost a large class of seniors and are coming off a 2-8 season. DeVos, however, is upbeat and ready to give his best to get them going in the right direction in his third year in the program. â€œIt has been an ususual situation. Itâ€™s been going good, though,â€? DeVos said. â€œWeâ€™ve got a lot of new guys playing, weâ€™ve got an experienced coaching staff, and weâ€™re very excited for the season.â€? DeVos, a 2006 Angola graduate who went on to play for Trine, said the change in coaches was handled well. â€œWe had very positive leadership in the locker room,â€? he said. â€œIt really didnâ€™t affect us too badly. The guys handled it very well and acted like mature athletes.â€? Most of the teamâ€™s experience is at the skill positions. Junior Logan Williams (5-11, 155) saw limited time there last year, and is joined by sophomore Harrison Price (6-3, 170). Theyâ€™ll be throwing to wide receivers Will Chrisman (sophomore, 6-6,

Theyâ€™re having fun with what theyâ€™re doing on the field,â€? assistant coach J.B. Samuelson said.

be learning as they go. â€œWeâ€™ve been trying to teach them short memories,â€? he said. â€œYouâ€™ve got to line up again in 35 seconds and play, even if you make a mistake,and thatâ€™s what weâ€™re working on really hard with this group.â€? Senior Landon Cochran (6-0, 158) will take a break from soccer on Friday nights to handle the kicking and punting duties. DeVos is ready for the challenge to begin. â€œItâ€™s been a really tight-knit team,â€? he said.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Senior Henry earns Purdue starting quarterback duties WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — A healthy Rob Henry finally has his old job back. On Sunday, first-year Purdue coach Darrell Hazell tabbed the senior as his starting quarterback. Henry had been battling true freshman Danny Etling and redshirt freshman Austin Appleby for the job. Henry, elected a captain by his teammates in 2011, outplayed Etling and Appleby in the spring game, and again when the Boilermakers reported for camp earlier this month. After sitting out his freshman season, Henry played in 11 games in 2010, starting seven after incumbent Robert Marve went down with a season-ending left knee injury. While the Boilermakers struggled to a 4-8 mark, Henry became the first player at the Cradle of Quarterbacks to lead the Boilermakers in passing and rushing. He completed 86 of 162 passes for 996 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions and ran 104 times for 547 yards. Purdue expected bigger things from Henry in 2011, but one week before the season opener, he tore the ACL in his right knee and missed the entire season. Last year, he wound up third in a quarterback derby that featured Marve and Caleb TerBush, the quarterback who replaced Henry in 2011 and led the Boilermakers to their first bowl game under coach Danny Hope. The Boilermakers tried to get the athletic 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete on the field in other spots. But Henry wound up completing just 21 of 38 passes for 216 yards and three TDs, rushing 38 times for 74 yards and one TD and catching six passes for 65 yards. This time, he’s the outright winner. Etling appeared to have the best chance of beating Henry. The 6-foot-2, 218-pounder from Terre Haute, Ind., was considered one of the top pro-style quarterbacks in the nation coming out of high school. He enrolled at Purdue in January, hoping to get a jump on the job. Appleby also is an intriguing prospect. One Ohio scouting service rated the 6-foot-5, 229-pound prep star the best quarterback in the Buckeye state. But with Marve, TerBush and Henry in front of him last season, Appleby redshirted. He’ll start this season behind Henry and possibly Etling.
Dolphins’ Keller done for year MIAMI (AP) — Dustin Keller will miss the entire season with a knee injury that leaves the Miami Dolphins without much experience at tight end, a position in which they were counting on an upgrade to enliven their offense in 2013. Keller seriously injured his right knee during Saturday’s preseason game at Houston, two people familiar with the diagnosis said Sunday. They confirmed the extent of the injury on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins made no public comment. Keller signed a $4.25 million, one-year contract with the Dolphins in March after five seasons with the New York Jets. His injury represents a significant setback for the Dolphins, who acquired Keller to replace tight end Tony Fasano and help second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Miami ranked 30th in the NFL last year with 13 touchdown passes, but Tannehill and Keller had clicked in training camp and connected on a 22-yard touchdown pass in the second exhibition game. “Dustin brought a lot to the table for us,” Tannehill said. “He’s a great player, and it’s a tough situation. But at the end of the day we have to have somebody step up and play in his shoes.” Keller was carted off the field after taking a hit in the knee from the helmet of tackler D.J. Swearinger, a rookie safety. The play was legal, and Swearinger said he went low because tackling high can lead to a fine.

Indiana hospitals embrace price transparency

BY DOUGLAS J. LEONARD
Following the federal government’s release of data on hospital charges for Medicare patients, much has been written nationally about how health care providers determine prices, the variation in charges for the same procedure and the willingness of hospitals to “come clean” on the issue of price transparency. As president of the Indiana Hospital Association, representing 164 Hoosier hospitals health Care for which hospitals and systems, are not compensated we fully embrace at all continues to price grow. In 2011, Indiana transparency. Our hospitals provided members nearly $3 billion in welcome opportuuncompensated care the nity to help for the uninsured and patients better underinsured. understand the costs associated with the round-theclock care they need, the quality of our care, as well as the value all patients receive when seeking treatment – no matter how severe their situation. The cost of treatment is difficult to measure, made complex over the years due to the system created by the government for patients who receive their health care through Medicare and Medicaid benefits – often at costs that far exceed what is paid to hospitals. The demands for discounts by private insurance companies create further complexity for hospitals and patients to determine the true cost of any given procedure. Most importantly, however, is the fact that each patient is unique. A procedure performed on a 27-year-old, otherwise healthy male will likely cost less than the same procedure performed on a 57-yearold male who is overweight and diabetic. Meanwhile, the rate of care for which hospitals are not compensated at all continues to grow. In 2011, Indiana hospitals provided nearly $3 billion in uncompensated care for the uninsured and underinsured. Shifting these costs has long been part of our complex health care system. Thus, what hospitals charge rarely reflects how much hospitals are ultimately reimbursed by government or private insurers. Despite these difficulties, moving toward price transparency is a priority. Already, the Indiana Hospital Association and its members are working to find the best solution. That solution must include cooperation from private insurers and the business community without whom health care providers are unable to report accurate pricing information to consumers. Nevertheless, the word “transparency” is nothing new for Indiana’s health care industry. Hoosier hospitals have for many years embraced greater transparency of their quality reporting. In 2001, the Institute of Medicine released a comprehensive report on health care quality measures. The report revealed inconsistent care and a lack of evidence-based practices across the country, leading the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to release quality measures on all hospitals. This effort at improving quality transparency was embraced by hospitals and has revolutionized the focus on quality and patient safety. Achieving greater price transparency will take time, effort and commitment from all parties involved to make the necessary changes to our systems, to our payer contracts and to our bills. And this effort will not eliminate the complexity of providing medical care to human beings. Nor will it eliminate the demands that continue to cause health care spending to grow. Price transparency is just one piece of the health care puzzle, but an important and critical one that must be addressed. Despite the progress Indiana hospitals have made by improving quality, and the work begun to ensure price transparency for patients, are we where we need to be? No, but we are getting closer. By working with private insurers so consumers get a complete picture of their out-of-pocket charges, and collaborating with the business community to report that information, together, we may finally succeed in delivering the health care system that Hoosiers deserve.
DOUGLAS J. LEONARD is president of the Indiana Hospital Association.

Defining the meaning of Hillary Clinton WASHINGTON — Three years out and you’d think the deed was done: Madame President Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton. She’s everywhere these days because: (a) It’s August; (b) Reporters are bored with President Obama; (c) Reporters are bored with Joe Biden; (d) Clintons are never boring. Correct. Op-ed columns are filled with advice about what Hillary needs to do. She needs a narrative. A message. It can’t be KATHLEEN that she’s a Clinton or a woman. It has to be … PARKER What? Here’s a thought: She can save the world. Yes, all right, perhaps a trifle hyperbolic, but hear me out. And keep in mind that this works only as a long game. We may not live to see salvation but one has to start somewhere. Thus far, invasions, bunker-busting mega-bombs and killer drones seem not to be having the desired effect. Let’s begin with a working (and provable) premise: Women, if allowed to be fully equal to men, will bring peace to the planet. This is not so far-fetched a notion. One, men have been at it for thousands of years, resulting in millions and millions of corpses. Two, countries where women are most oppressed and abused are also the least stable. Three, as women become more empowered, especially financially, countries become more stable. When women have money, they can feed their families, get health care, educate their children, start businesses and so on. The ripple effect is stronger families, stronger communities, and ultimately saner nations. This fact, reinforced by numerous economic studies, has not escaped the
attention of corporate America, which is investing heavily to reach women in developing countries. As Muhtar Kent, the CEO of Coca-Cola, put it: “Women are already the most dynamic and fastestgrowing economic force in the world today.” What does this have to do with Hillary? Quite a bit. Rewinding the tape to 1995 at the U.N. Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, then-first lady Hillary Clinton empowered women as never before with just a few words: “Human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights, once and for all.” Imagine that. Well, of course, we can imagine that. Our Founding Fathers created the instruments to codify this concept, even if it took a while to imprint on our psyches and to be reflected in our laws. But elsewhere, in places where women are tortured, abused, sold into slavery and disfigured, all to the “glory” of men, it was a trumpet blast from heaven’s gate that caused the earth to tremble: Women are human beings, too. How do you say “wow” in Lingala? At the time, it was a revolutionary statement and helps explain why Hillary is one of the most recognized and revered individuals in the world. While Americans obsess about Hillary’s hair and married life, others have been studying her for inspiration. To millions, she is a role model and a warrior for women’s right to self-determination. As secretary of state, she continued the work of her predecessors, Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright, who first insisted that women’s rights be part of our foreign policy, and then pushed further. Under Hillary’s watch, Obama made permanent the Office of Global Women’s Issues and appointed longtime Hillary colleague Melanne Verveer as ambassador-at-large. These strides in soft diplomacy may get
To millions, she is a role model and a warrior for women’s right to self-determination.
• less ink than, say, John Kerry’s progress toward Middle East peace talks, but they are no less important in the longer term. Far newsier than yet another round of “peace talks,” necessary though they be, are the implications of the global explosion in women’s economic and, therefore, political power. Whether one likes or dislikes Hillary, few dispute that she has matured in her public role. Her resume can be topped by few and the symbolic power of electing a woman president — especially this woman — can’t be overestimated. Many doubtless shudder at the prospect of Hillary Clinton as the most powerful person in the world, but we’ve done worse. For what it’s worth, many in the Bush White House said privately they hoped Hillary would win because they felt she was the better prepared to handle international challenges. Whatever transpires during the next three years, we can be sure the world’s women are watching closely. In 2007 when I traveled through the Middle East with then-first lady Laura Bush, every woman I met was riveted by the U.S. presidential election and wanted to talk about only this: Will Hillary win? In 2008, it seemed possible. In 2016, barring a Benghazi surprise, it seems probable. KATHLEEN PARKER is a syndicated columnist with Tribune Media Services.

What Others Say Bennett’s downfall is no reason to scrap state reforms Before school reform champion Tony Bennett fell from grace for his alleged manipulation of school accountability scores in Indiana, he was well on his way to establishing himself as an outspoken leader in modernizing academic programs in elementary and secondary schools. As the Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction 2009-2012, and with the support of then- Gov. Mitch Daniels, the state board of education and a Republican legislative majority, Bennett pushed through a lineup of school reform initiatives. His programs weren’t popular with teachers unions or some Democrats, but they did challenge the old ways of doing things in what were considered mediocre Indiana schools. But he blew it big time in an attempt to change scoring on the state A-F grading system for ranking state schools, seeming to helping out some charter schools.
Even though Bennett lost the 2012 election to a Democratic Indiana educator, Glenda Ritz, he was hired next as Florida’s school chief, there to institute some of the reforms he brought to Indiana. But he lost that position as well, resigning just days ago. The Associated Press broke the story, publishing emails from when he was still Indiana superintendent, showing an effort by him and Indiana staff members to rewrite the state’s school grading formula after the Christel House Academy in Indianapolis, a charter school founded by influential GOP contributor Christel DeHaan, scored only a C grade. The score was eventually changed to an A, but Bennett maintained he did not give special treatment to Christel House. Emails obtained by the AP showed that Bennett ordered his staff to find a way to get an A for Christel House. It didn’t help that Christel DeHaan had contributed $130,000 to Bennett’s losing re-election campaign. No doubt Democrats, some Republicans and union teachers who opposed school
accountability and other reforms will see this as an opportunity to take advantage of the scandal and throw out some reform. The accounting grading system has been under review, and could see some changes. Ritz said there would be a final report on Sept. 2. That review is completely justified, but in our opinion, it is important that the state tread lightly in looking at other reforms adopted during Bennett’s terms in office. We must separate our views of his behavior on this one issue from his ideas for modernizing schools. Among the programs championed by Bennett as Indiana school chief were a third-grade reading test meant to end social promotions, the A-F accountability program, ending half-day class days, vouchers, charter schools, state takeovers of failing schools and teacher training. Indiana would be foolish now to scrap those programs in favor of a return to the old days of mediocre academics in many of Indiana’ schools. Evansville Courier & Press

Penn State pays first Sandusky victim HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Penn State may never be able to fully shake off the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal, but news that one victim has settled and other claimants may be soon follow marks a legal milestone after almost a year of negotiations. Attorney Tom Kline said Saturday that a 25-year-old suburban Philadelphia man known as “Victim 5” in court filings had completed the agreement with the university, the first to come to terms with the university that once employed Sandusky as an assistant football coach. Another attorney, Mike Boni, one of four lawyers collectively representing 10 claimants — including the young man whose complaint
triggered the Sandusky criminal investigation — said Sunday those claims were also close to being resolved. “I’d be troubled if it didn’t happen this week,” Boni said. “We’re not signed off, but we’re close.” Another lawyer, Jeff Anderson, said his two cases are not that near to being resolved. “It’s still a work in progress,” Anderson told The Associated Press on Sunday. “If somebody’s talking about they have deals done, it’s not us.” The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Saturday that 26 of 31 claims are close to being settled, which would validate the strategy used by Penn State to compensate Sandusky’s victims, said
Richard Serbin, an Altoona lawyer who has represented sex abuse victims for 25 years. “I would be very surprised if any of these cases ends up in trial,” Serbin said. “They may end up going forward in litigation, but that does not mean they will not be resolved before getting to the courthouse steps.” Penn State announced a year ago — the day Sandusky was convicted of 45 criminal counts — that it hoped to compensate his victims fairly and quickly. Penn State’s trustees have authorized some $60 million to be used for settlements. The deals appear to be coming together as three former school administrators await trial for an
alleged cover-up and other actions after getting complaints about Sandusky. A district judge recently ruled there was enough evidence to send the cases against former president Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and former Tim Curley to county court for trial. All three deny the allegations. The settlements may not affect those cases at all, Serbin said. “I certainly don’t think it impedes the prosecution, but I’m not quite certain it helps them, either,” he said. Kline’s client, who took the stand at Sandusky’s criminal trial and sentencing last year, signed off on the agreement on Friday and should get paid within a month.
The man was identified by name in court, but the AP does not name people who are victims of sex crimes without their consent. Kline said that as part of the agreement, his client assigned his claim to Penn State, effectively giving the university a better chance to recover the money from other parties, such as The Second Mile, a charity for at-risk youth that Sandusky founded. Boni said the same question was an issue in the settlement talks involving Victim 1, who has come forward to identify himself as Aaron Fisher and written a book about the experience. “It enables Penn State to go after the insurers
and Second Mile,” the Sandusky-founded charity where he met at least some of his victims, Boni said. “Whether Penn State ever does or not, who knows.” A spokesman for the university declined comment Saturday on Victim 5’s deal, saying the school “continues to make progress on multiple settlements.” At Sandusky’s trial, Victim 5 testified that he met the coach at a Second Mile camp in 1999 and went to Penn State games with him. He said that Sandusky groped him in the showers during a workout — the incident occurred after another assistant coach reported seeing Sandusky attacking a child in a locker room shower.
Prosecution getting to motive in Fort Hood trial
Volunteer divers prepare their rubber to help in the search and rescue operation off Talisay coast, Cebu province Sunday following Friday night’s collision of the passenger ferry MV Thomas Aquinas and the cargo ship Sulpicio Express
Siete in central Philippines. Divers plucked two more bodies from the sunken passenger ferry on Sunday and scrambled to plug an oil leak in the wreckage after the collision.
Ferry death toll reaches 39 CEBU, Philippines (AP) — As the MV Thomas Aquinas cruised toward Cebu city in the central Philippines, navy marshal Richard Pestillos prepared for a brief stop while some passengers watched a band and others soaked in the night breeze on the deck. Then the scene turned chaotic when the ferry, with 870 passengers and crew, and a cargo ship collided late Friday, ripping a hole in its hull, knocking out its power and causing it to list before rapidly sinking as people screamed, according to Pestillos and other witnesses. “The sea was very calm and we could already see the lights at the pier,” Pestillos told The Associated Press on Sunday by telephone. “Then very suddenly … there was a loud bang then the grating sound of metal being peeled off,” he said. Coast guard officials said at least 39 died and more
than 80 were missing in the latest deadly sea accident in the Philippines, which happened 350 miles south of Manila. Frequent storms, badly maintained vessels and weak enforcement of safety regulations have been blamed for many of the accidents, including in 1987 when the ferry Dona Paz sank after colliding with a fuel tanker, killing more than 4,341 people in the world’s worst peacetime maritime disaster. Cebu Governor Hilario Davide III said 751 passengers and crew of the Thomas Aquinas were rescued. There were no signs of additional survivors late Sunday, although Davide told reporters that he had not given up hope. Pestillos, one of several people praised for saving others in the accident, said he distributed life jackets and launched life rafts before creating his own
flotation device by tying three life jackets to his navy service rifle. As the ferry sank, Pestillos said he fell into water that reeked of oil and was hit by a falling life boat. He said he gave his homemade flotation device to a woman who needed it to stay afloat. He said he lost sight of her when he went to help seven others, including two toddlers, toward an overturned life boat. Pestillos said rescuers found his rifle still tied to the life jackets, but it was not clear what happened to the woman. “I’m really praying that she also made it to the shore alive,” he said. Cebu coast guard chief Commodore William Melad said there were 870 people on the ferry, including 754 passengers and 116 crew, after collating records of hospitals, rescuers and the ferry owner.
AP: What’s next in Pistorius case? JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Oscar Pistorius is due to re-appear in a South African court on today to face charges of killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Here’s what is expected to happen next: INDICTMENT: The 26-year-old double-amputee Olympian will be indicted on a main charge of premeditated murder on Today at Pretoria Magistrate’s Court, prosecutors say, confirming they will maintain the charge they initially laid against Pistorius for Steenkamps’s shooting death in February when they go to trial. Pistorius denies he committed murder and says he shot Steenkamp by mistake thinking she was a dangerous intruder. The blockbuster trial is expected to start in early 2014 but the exact date will likely be set today, according to prosecutors. It will probably be in February or March, around a year since Steenkamp’s killing. The indictment papers served on Pistorius by the state mean the case will be sent to
the High Court in the South African capital Pretoria, where a judge will preside over the trial and ultimately pronounce the world-famous athlete innocent or guilty. South Africa does not have trial by jury. The mandatory sentence for someone convicted of premeditated murder is life with a minimum of 25 years in prison, meaning if Pistorius is found guilty, he will be older than 50, at least, when he leaves prison. There is no death penalty in South Africa. The indictment papers are expected to include a list of witnesses to be called by the prosecution during the trial, and detail some of the evidence police investigators have gathered in the six months since Pistorius fatally shot Steenkamp in a bathroom in his home on Valentine’s Day. ADDITIONAL CHARGES: Prosecutors told The Associated Press it is “possible” that additional charges could be added to the indictment but declined to comment on South African
media reports that Pistorius would face two other charges relating to recklessly discharging a firearm in a public place in two separate incidents. The incidents — reportedly when Pistorius shot a gun out of the sunroof of a moving car and let one off accidentally in a restaurant — would seemingly show the prosecution’s attempt to paint Pistorius as trigger-happy at his trial. Neither Pistorius’ defense lawyers nor his family would comment in detail on any of the charges, but a spokeswoman said they would see a copy of the indictment papers before today so they could prepare. “The Pistorius family does not wish to comment on any aspects of this court case before the next court appearance,” Anneliese Burgess told the AP in an email. “In our view, the correct place for any information relating to charges or witnesses or any other aspects pertaining to this or any other legal case, is in a court of law.”
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The prosecutors pursuing the death penalty against the Army psychiatrist accused in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage will soon begin trying to answer a difficult but key question: Why did Maj. Nidal Hasan attack his fellow soldiers in the worst mass shooting ever on a U.S. military base? Both sides offered a few hints so far. Although he’s been mostly silent in the courtroom, Hasan used his brief opening statement to tell jurors he had “switched sides” in what he called America’s war with Islam and he later leaked documents to the media showing he believed he could be a martyr. Military prosecutors opened the trial by saying they would show that Hasan felt he had a “jihad duty,” referring to a Muslim term for
a religious war or struggle. After calling almost 80 witnesses over two weeks, prosecutors said Friday they would begin tackling the question this week. How much they can say to jurors, however, may be limited by the judge. Even though plenty of information about Hasan’s extremist views has been published outside the courtroom since the rampage, the 13 military officers on the jury said they had not closely followed the case and wouldn’t read news coverage during the trial. Prosecutors asked the military judge, Col. Tara Osborn, on Friday to approve evidence and several witnesses to explain Hasan’s mindset. Such evidence includes references to Hasan Akbar, a Muslim soldier sentenced to death for attacking fellow soldiers in
Kuwait during the 2003 Iraq invasion. Prosecutor Col. Steve Henricks told Osborn that Hasan had shown interest in Akbar’s case and prosecutors wanted to prove Hasan’s attack was a “copycat.” The skeptical judge told Henricks she didn’t want to hold a “mini-trial” of Akbar and asked how he would introduce the case to jurors. Henricks said he planned to call a prosecutor to discuss its basics, but he didn’t identify the prosecutor. Akbar was prosecuted by Col. Mike Mulligan, the lead prosecutor in Hasan’s trial. Henricks has alleged that besides his so-called “jihad duty,” Hasan was looking for ways to get out of deploying, and he said witnesses could include former classmates who heard him talking about suicide bombers.

Man not adjusting to early retirement DEAR ABBY: My husband lost his job more than a year ago because his plant closed. He was almost retirement age, so he took an early retirement. The problem is he isn’t adjusting well to the change. He has his hobbies, but he seems to have lost interest in them. He is angry a lot of the time and lost at other times. I understand it’s a huge adjustment for him, but I’m concerned that it has been going on too long. I have tried to get him interested in things, but he doesn’t take my suggestions well anymore. He thinks I want him out of my hair, but it’s not true. I want him to be happy. I know he’s depressed but he denies it. When other people ask how he likes retirement, he says he loves it. I think he feels silly for not enjoying it. He doesn’t want to spend

Your husband may have valuable skills he could pass on by mentoring others. He could volunteer in the community, delivering meals to shut-ins, coaching youngsters’ sports, help out at the police department or a hospital. All he needs to do is go to his computer and type in “volunteer opportunities in Michigan” to find plenty of opportunities. He can donate as little or as much time as he wants. But first, he will have to admit that he ISN’T loving retirement and needs an outlet. Please make sure he sees this column.

Diet, lifestyle can prevent kidney stones Kidney stones form if too many minerals are excreted into the urine. Low fluid volume, caused by dehydration, is another cause. Most kidney stones are made of calcium oxalate, but stones may be made of other substances. Your doctor can determine ASK what your DOCTOR K. stone is made of by analyzing urine Dr. Anthony your or the kidney itself. Komaroff stone People who have already had a kidney stone have the highest risk of forming another one. Fortunately, kidney stones can be largely prevented with diet and lifestyle changes and,
sometimes, medication. Your doctor will tailor recommendations to what your kidney stone is made of. Prevention may involve: • Water. Drinking plenty of fluids keeps your urine dilute, so minerals won’t accumulate into stones. Drink at least 10 glasses of fluid a day, half of which should be water. • Calcium. Most kidney stones contain calcium. Surprisingly, dietary calcium is protective. That’s because it reduces the amount of oxalate that is absorbed from the gut, and it is the combination of calcium and oxalate that forms stones. Good sources include milk, cheese, yogurt, oranges and broccoli. On the other hand, calcium supplements can increase your risk for kidney stones because they increase the calcium in your blood and urine but do not decrease the oxalate. Avoid calcium supplements if you’ve had calcium kidney stones.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I recently passed a kidney stone — and I would do anything to prevent another one from forming. Can kidney stones be prevented? DEAR READER: I’ve never had a kidney stone myself, but I’ve had plenty of patients who suffered from them. So I know that they really hurt. Kidney stones are hard chemical deposits that form inside the kidneys. They are often as small as grains of sand and pass painlessly out of the body in urine. But kidney stones can be much bigger — the size of a pea, a marble or even larger. But if a stone gets into the ureters — the tubes that connect each kidney to the bladder — it can cause intense pain and bleeding. This may require medication and/or hospitalization to have the stone removed or broken into fragments.

• Oxalate. Oxalate often binds to calcium to form kidney stones. Cut down on high-oxalate foods, which include beets, spinach, chard, rhubarb, tea, coffee, cola, chocolate and nuts. • Sodium. Keep sodium intake under 1,500 mg a day. A low-sodium diet reduces the amount of calcium the kidney puts into the urine. • Protein. Avoid or limit red meat. Animal protein increases the tendency of stones to form. • Fruits and vegetables. Plant-based foods protect against kidney stones. High-potassium fruits such as tomatoes and bananas are best. Citrus fruits — except grapefruit — are another good choice. • Obesity. Obesity increases risk. Shed excess pounds. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

NYPD faces prospect of 2 new, separate watchdogs NEW YORK (AP) — After years of burnishing a reputation as one of the nation’s most potent police forces, the New York Police Department appears poised to become one of the most closely monitored. A federal judge this week said the department made thousands of racially discriminatory street stops and appointed a monitor to direct changes. And city lawmakers are readying for a final vote Thursday on creating an inspector general for the NYPD and widening the legal path for pursuing claims of police bias. It’s a one-two punch of outside tinkering that will muddy police work, a pair of complementary steps to protect civil rights or a rash of policymaking that may end up meaning little
on the street, depending on who gets asked. But from any perspective, it would be the onset of a new era of oversight for the country’s biggest police department, though the impacts would be defined by particulars and politics still in play. The federal ruling outlines but doesn’t always detail reforms, and the city plans to appeal it. The City Council, if it succeeds in overriding a mayoral veto, would establish a monitor but not select the person or specify exactly what gets investigated. And a new mayor will take office next year, which could well mean new police leadership. “The complexity, at this point, is that there are so many moving parts,” said John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor
Eugene O’Donnell, who isn’t involved in the litigation or legislation. “And it doesn’t help that it became very adversarial.” Some other police forces, including the Los Angeles Police Department, also have had both court monitoring and an inspector general. The NYPD was under a 1980s federal consent decree that involved undercover and surveillance techniques, but this would be an unprecedented level of outside scrutiny for the agency. Advocates see distinct roles for each of the prospective new NYPD watchdogs, who would have different scopes and powers. They wouldn’t directly intersect, deriving their authority from different parts of government.
The court monitor could compel changes, via the judge, but only concerning stop and frisk. If the ruling stands after the expected appeal, the monitor will flesh out details of U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin’s calls for changes to officer training, supervision and discipline. The monitor also would keep tabs on specific initiatives Scheindlin required: revising forms that document stops and testing body-worn cameras for officers. The inspector general could look at many aspects of policing — surveillance of Muslims or officers’ response to the mentally ill, for instance. But the inspector could issue only recommendations, not orders, though the mayor or
council could make them mandatory. The court’s monitoring would end when the judge saw no further need for it, while the inspector general’s position would be permanent. “Both are essential elements in creating transparency and accountability in the NYPD,” said Chauniqua Young of the Center for Constitutional Rights, which brought the federal case and is among groups backing the city legislation. But Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly have bitterly resisted the push to impose more outside input on the NYPD, pressure that built amid anger over the department’s heavy use of the stop and
frisk tactic and concerns about extensive NYPD surveillance of Muslims. The spying was disclosed in stories by The Associated Press. The mayor and commissioner say police already get plenty of scrutiny from entities ranging from a 700-person internal investigations staff to a civilian complaint board. The new monitors would layer on confusing, overlapping oversight, the officials say. Bloomberg has raised the specter of the police force becoming so policed by watchdogs and lawsuits that officers might hesitate to defend themselves, with deadly consequences. “I’d like to see you go to the funeral and explain to the family,” he snapped at a news conference Aug. 12.
U.N. chemical arms expert arrives in Syria Living standards DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — After months of drawn-out negotiations, United Nations experts arrived in Damascus on Sunday to begin their investigation into the purported use of chemical weapons in Syria’s civil war. The rebels, along with the U.S. and other Western powers, have accused President Bashar Assad’s regime of carrying out the alleged chemical attacks, while the Syrian government and Russia have blamed the opposition. Nearly six months after the weapons of mass destruction were first allegedly employed on the battlefield, definitive proof remains elusive. The U.N. team that arrived in Damascus on Sunday is tasked with determining whether chemical weapons have been used in the conflict, and if so which ones. But the mission’s mandate does not extend to establishing who was responsible for an attack, which has led some observers to question the overall value of the probe. The 20-member U.N.
delegation, led by Swedish chemical weapons expert Ake Sellstrom, checked into a five-star hotel upon arrival in central Damascus. Plainclothes police officers immediately whisked them away from a crush of reporters and cameraman waiting in the lobby. U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said the team will begin its work on Monday. The investigators are expected to visit three sites where chemical weapons attacks allegedly occurred: the village of Khan al-Assal just west of the embattled northern city of Aleppo and two other locations that have not been disclosed. Syria is said to have one of the world’s largest stockpiles of chemical weapons, including mustard gas and the nerve agent sarin. There are concerns that the Assad regime might use them on a large scale, transfer some of them to the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group or that the chemical agents could fall into the hands of al-Qaida-affiliated militants and other extremists among the rebels.

In this image made from video, U.N. weapon inspectors collect their luggage from their U.N. vehicle as they arrive at a hotel in Damascus, Syria, Sunday.
Ahead of the experts’ arrival, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad told The Associated Press that the government will offer the U.N. inspectors its full assistance. “I assure you, on behalf of the Syrian Arab Republic, that we will fully cooperate with this team and provide it will all information we have and all facilities to reach a rational conclusion,” he
said. “Our basic target is for this team to find facts on ground, especially about what happened in Khan al-Assal, because we, as a government, do not know about any other cases other than the case where chemical weapons were used by terrorists there,” he added. Syria’s government refers to rebels fighting its rule as terrorists.
LONDON (AP) — Poor families in Britain are struggling to provide basics for their children as the cost of living rises faster than wages and benefits, research released by a charity Monday suggested. The cost of raising a child during the first 18 years of life rose 4 percent to 148,105 pounds ($230,376) last year, while average earnings rose 1.5 percent and safety net benefits rose 1 percent, according to the report from the Child Poverty Action Group. “This research paints a stark picture of families being squeezed by rising prices and stagnant wages, yet receiving ever-diminishing support from the government over the course of the last year,” said Alison Garnham, the group’s chief executive. “Every parent knows it’s getting harder to pay for the essentials their children need, and they don’t feel like politicians see them as a priority.”
The report comes as Britain’s coalition government, elected in 2010, imposes tough austerity measures to reduce the nation’s budget deficit. Those programs include limiting benefit increases to 1 percent annually for three years, forcing many low-income residents to pay local council tax for the first time, and a new fee for public housing tenants with spare bedrooms. Treasury chief George Osborne has acknowledged that the recovery is taking “longer than anyone hoped,” but says that tackling the deficit will be better for the country in the long run despite the short term pain. Child poverty advocates argue that such measures hit families hard — and that safeguarding families should be the government’s priority. Looking at the numbers in economic isolation without considering the impact of such policies on children won’t help the economy, they say.
