Teachers call for unified building Board weighs options for McKenney-Harrison school BY KATHRYN BASSETT

WATERLOO — McKenney-Harrison Elementary School teachers Tuesday told the DeKalb Central school board they favor a renovation plan that would involve demolishing the Harrison building and using new construction to consolidate school areas.

The board appears to have narrowed its options for the McKenney-Harrison renovation project to two plans. The one favored by the teachers who spoke Tuesday would save the newer, existing McKenney structure. It carries a price tag of $16.8 million. The other plan under consideration involves saving the

Harrison building, as well as using new construction to create a closed loop of classrooms on the McKenney site, while removing much of the 1950s portion of the McKenney building. That option has an estimated price of $20.5 million. First-grade teacher Deanna Richardson said she favors Plan C,

Don Monesmith is restoring this 1924 Meteor school bus in his garage north of Avilla. He will welcome visitors for the annual Garage Cruise

from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Behind him is his 1946 Ford Deluxe sedan.

Garage Cruise making five stops BY DAVE KURTZ

AVILLA — As a big fan of the annual Garage Cruise, Don Monesmith is backing up his words. “I think this garage tour is just an incredibly great idea,” Monesmith said this week. Sunday, he’ll open his own garage as one of five stops on this year’s route. Others are in Kendallville, Auburn and Fort Wayne. The five stops will be open Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. as an early event of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival. Admission costs $10 for all stops or $5 for only one. Monesmith said he’s impressed by the work of other local vehicle restoration hobbyists. “To actually see them in the process is, to me, a lot of fun,” he said. The current work in progress at Monesmith’s garage north of Avilla is a 1924 Meteor school bus with a wooden body, produced in Piqua, Ohio. “It’s the last one known to exist, and I’m the only one goofy enough to tackle it,” Monesmith said about the bus. When Monesmith found the Meteor last fall in Plymouth, it had just enough of its framework left to use as patterns for rebuilding it. Monesmith started work in March and has nearly completed the body with its curving wood surfaces. “It’s been a fun project,” he said. Monesmith enjoys woodworking, mechanical work and restoration. “This one kind of

pulls it all together,” he said of the bus project. When he finishes the bus, he said, “It’ll be fully driveable. We’ll take it to cruise-ins and shows.” That’s what he’s been doing all summer with his previous project — a restored 1936 Ford Coca-Cola delivery truck, carrying 160 wooden cases he made by hand. Sunday’s visitors will see the Coke truck and Monesmith’s 1946 Ford Deluxe sedan with suicide doors and a fuel-injected Ford flathead V-8 engine. At 67 years old, “It’s just rock-solid,” he said.

Regime denies using chemical weapons in Damascus suburb BEIRUT (AP) — The images showed lifeless children — wrapped in simple white cloths, their pale faces unmarked by any wound — lined up shoulder to shoulder in a vivid demonstration of an attack Wednesday in which activists say the Syrian regime killed at least 130 people with toxic gas. The Syrian government adamantly denied using chemical weapons in an artillery barrage targeting suburbs east of Damascus, calling the allegations “absolutely baseless.” The U.S., Britain and France demanded that a team of U.N. experts already in the country be granted immediate access to investigate the claims. Videos and photographs showed row upon row of bodies wrapped in white shrouds lying on a tile floor, including more than a dozen children. There was little evidence of blood or conventional injuries and most appeared to have suffocated. Survivors of the purported attack, some twitching uncontrollably, lay on gurneys with oxygen masks covering their faces. Activists and the opposition leadership gave widely varying death tolls, ranging from as low as 136 to as high as 1,300. But even the most conservative tally would make it the deadliest alleged chemical attack in Syria’s civil war. For months now, the rebels, along with the United States, Britain and France, have accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons in its campaign to try to snuff out the rebellion against President Bashar Assad that began in March 2011.

911 call discusses school gunman’s mental health LITHONIA, Ga. (AP) — A woman whose family once took in the suspect in an Atlanta-area school shooting said Wednesday that he was mentally ill but never violent in the past. Natasha Knotts told The Associated Press that Michael Brandon Hill lived with her and her husband for several months in his late teens. She says she served as a mother figure for Hill in after he started coming to the small church where she and her husband are pastors. Also on Wednesday, police

gave more details about the previous day’s ordeal and what led up to it. Before going to the school, investigators say that Hill took a photo of himself with an AK 47-style rifle and packed up nearly 500 rounds of ammunition — enough to shoot more than half the school’s students. Police said Hill, 20, got the gun from an acquaintance, but it’s not clear if he stole it or had permission to take it. No one was injured, but the suspect exchanged gunfire with SEE GUNMAN, PAGE A7

Council OKs fund for library project

Musicians performing in library park AUBURN — Hometown talent and Fort Wayne Philharmonic musicians will be featured in this weekend’s Pianos on the Square musical performances at the Eckhart Public Library Park. Saturday, DeKalb High School graduate Carmen Rainelli will show off her vocal skills when she performs at 4 p.m. While at DeKalb, Rainelli, 18, was involved in show choir for four years and the drama department for three years. As a junior she played Eponine in “Les Miserables,” and as a senior played Ado Annie in “Oklahoma.” She has won awards for best female vocalist and best performer during show choir season. She will enroll at Rudae’s Cosmetology School in the fall, with plans to pursue a career in music. Prior to Rainelli’s performance, Lauren Woodcox will play the piano from 2-2:30 p.m. Sunday, husband-andwife Alexander Klepach and Olga Yurkova of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic will perform at 2 p.m. Yurkova, a violinist, joined the Philharmonic in 1998 when

she moved to the United States from Russia. She holds a doctorate of music and violin performance from Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and has toured extensively in Italy, Spain, Belgium, Turkey, France, Romania, Korea and other countries. Yurkova is a first prize-winner of several international competitions and festivals including The International Violin Competition in Budapest, Tenth International Music Festival in Korea, International String Quartet Competition in Tallin, Estonia, as well as violin competitions in Russia and Moldova. She was concertmaster of National Chamber Orchestra of Moldova and also a soloist and concertmaster with the Symphony Orchestra of Europe. In the U.S., she was invited to many festivals as a concertmaster and principal violinist, including Ash Lawn-Highland Festival and the Colorado Music Festival. Klepach, a pianist, began his musical studies at age 5 in his hometown of Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine. He gave his first public recital at age

8 and made his first appearance with a symphony orchestra at age 12. He was educated at the Special Music School in Kiev and graduated from the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory in 1986 with a doctorate of music in piano performance. Strongly opposed to the communist regime, Klepach wasn’t allowed to perform abroad and was

forcefully recruited into the Soviet Red Army. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1992, Klepach performed with the National Philharmonic of Moldova, the Symphony Orchestra of Europe in Madrid, and The National Chamber Orchestra of Russia as a piano and harpsichord soloist. He came to the United States in 1998.

FORT WAYNE — Deloris Jordan, the author of the best-selling children’s book “Salt in His Shoes” and mother of basketball great Michael Jordan, will be the guest speaker at a Sept. 10 event sponsored by United Way of Allen County and Women United. The program aims to help focus attention on the importance of early childhood education. The event will be from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Public Safety Academy/Ivy Tech South Campus, 7602 Patriot Crossing.

Businesses hurt by fire FORT WAYNE (AP) — Fire officials in Fort Wayne say at least a dozen businesses rented portions of an old industrial complex destroyed in a massive blaze.

children’s areas on the main level. Local businessman Bill Yoder also spoke in favor of the measure. “I think Garrett is currently more attractive than ever,” Yoder said, noting the new school, great athletic facilities and the downtown area. He said the library project would add further appeal to those looking to move to the community. His wife, Ethel, serves on the library board. Mayor Tonya Hoeffel also spoke in favor of the project. She mentioned the library was once used for Girl Scout meetings, and that her children attended story time and other activities at the site, watched movies and borrowed books. “It serves a great purpose within our city,” she said. “It is one of the amenities we are very proud of. Our library is more than a building with books.” Third District Councilwoman Amanda Charles cast the lone dissenting vote. “District 3 has a large number of citizens on fixed incomes and many citizens in jobs which haven’t experienced raises in quite some time,” Charles said. City utility rates and taxes have increased through funding for the county dispatch center and the new high school, she noted. “All of this adds up,” she said. “This increase for the library may seem minimal to some, but all of these recent increases become costly to many.” She also mentioned the city is currently reviewing electricity rates, which will become an added cost to citizens.

GARRETT — The Garrett Common Council approved a resolution by a 4-1 vote to appropriate $300,000 for the Garrett Public Library following a public hearing Tuesday. The money would come from the Library Improvement Reserve Fund to help with immediate costs for a 6,800-foot, two-level expansion to the 100-yearold Garrett Public Library. The library board gave its unanimous approval at a meeting last week. Under Indiana code, such appropriations need approval by the common council for appointed boards such as the library. Library director Cate Birdseye opened the hearing by introducing members of the Garrett Public Library Board, representatives of the Library Foundation and Garrett Friends of the Library, patrons and families who attended the hearing on behalf of the measure. She explained the $1.9 million cost for the project, originally estimated at $1.6 million, grew “because bids were a bit higher than wanted.” Birdseye also told the council additional costs, including moving books and shelves and renovation of the old portion of the library, were rolled into the plan. She plans to appropriate an additional $100,000 from the Library Improvement Reserve Fund to help with the higher cost. The city council earlier approved a $1.5 million bond to fund the project, which will remain the same. Any cost up to that amount can be reimbursed to the library at the end of the project. Jack Krouse, president of Construction Control Inc. of Fort Wayne, told council members the low bid for the project includes work by four local firms, which represent $800,000, or half of the cost of the project. He estimated a $4 million impact to the community if money changes hands five times. Resident Ron Matthews said it appeared the “library board paid attention.” He added that to wait to build would “make no sense. Get it done and over with.” Library patron Jane Herendeen said she often uses the library with her daughters. She told council members that study groups at the library are difficult due to space issues and distractions, and she hopes to see change in the future. The proposed additional space would be used for two community rooms on the second floor and youth and

Dove, Canada goose, teal in season This is the time of year when wingshooters look forward to each passing day. The first of September marks the opening of the dove and early Canada goose seasons, followed a week later by the special teal season. It’s the time of year when hunters take their shotguns down from the rack, haul out JAMES H. the decoys and prepare PHILLIPS blinds for the opening day festivities. Smart hunters also buy a fresh can of mosquito repellent. The little hummers can be exceedingly bothersome at this time of year, especially if you are hunting around water. If you haven’t visited a skeet range or sporting clays course in recent days to sharpen your shooting eye, you might do what I do. The

week before the opener I put my shotgun in a corner where it is easily accessible, and then frequently pick it up and practice shouldering it. I pick out a distant object, close my eyes, and shoulder my shotgun until the small bead at the end of the barrel is right on target. You cannot consistently hunt anything until you learn to shoulder your shotgun the same way every time. If I had to choose between doves or Canada geese for the opener, I would opt for doves. My reason is simple: with a daily limit of 15 doves, you get a lot more shooting. The dove outlook this year seems pretty good. I have seen more than the usual number of doves than in the past few years. But any prediction is fraught with danger. The best early shooting — at least for large groups of hunters — occurs in silage-cut corn fields. September doves will key on these fields to feed and the shooting can be sensational, especially if you have enough hunters to

DNR has class on basics

Birding tutorials from Cornell Lab

Don’t know a thing about deer or deer hunting but would like to learn? The Department of Natural Resources has the solution — the Hunt, Fish, Eat outreach program that introduces new hunters to the basics for getting started. “Hunt, Fish, Eat: White-tailed Deer” features four three-hour sessions beginning at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 5 at the Salamonie Lake Interpretive Center (3691 S. New Holland Road Andrews, and continuing on the following three Thursdays (Sept. 12, 19 and 26) at different local sites. The program is free and open to new hunters age 18 and older. Participants are asked to attend all four sessions. The hands-on, safe environment provides an opportunity to learn the skills necessary to begin hunting white-tailed deer in Indiana. The sessions focus on such topics as the history of white-tailed deer hunting in Indiana, rules and regulations, introduction to equipment, firearms and safety, deer sign, field set-up, tracking and field dressing your harvest, and handling and preparing your harvest for the table. At each session, participants will be able to sample venison recipes and check out a variety of gear and resources available to hunters. To register, go to pKey=311a100067a5c 0d3edd7450b85e8. Or contact the DNR.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has released two “Be a Better Birder” tutorials. They are aimed at beginners who want a solid instruction to the basics of bird identification. “Thanks so much for a fun and informative course,” says student Nancy Blechschmidt. “It was well organized, very user-friendly, and not too overwhelming. I especially enjoyed the way the pictures were used in comparisons.” Part one focuses on size and shape-truly key to knowing birds. Readers learn which parts

surround the field and keep the doves from landing. I spend most of my dove-hunting in the afternoon, waiting for the birds to leave the cool depths of nearby woods to wing out to feed. I always bring along a Thermos of iced tea to keep cool while waiting for the birds to buzz my dove decoys. Take along plenty of shells. You will need them. Goose hunting is another matter. I prefer to hunt small, rural ponds surrounded by mowed grass. Toss out a few decoys along the water’s edge, sit back and wait. It increases the odds of success if you have spent some time scouting and found a pond that the geese are using. Another friend always hunts a well-grazed pasture. He generally gets a few geese, but I cannot recall his description of a banner shoot over pasture during the early goose season. Silage-cut cornfields also can attract honkers. The special teal season begins Sept.7 and success is largely dependent on

whether early migrating blue-wings are winging across Northern Indiana when we go afield. Aerial nesting-ground surveys by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service found large numbers of breeding blue-wings, but this could be deceptive. I wouldn’t depend on the results to predict a banner hunting season. There are too many variables to depend on the breedingground surveys. If you want to become a good shot, head out for doves. I have always said I never advanced beyond the fair stage until I moved to the South and began dove hunting. The number of opportunities you have at doves is so much greater than with ducks or geese. It enables you to fine-tune your shooting skills. Whatever gamebird you prefer, the fall hunting seasons are fast approaching. For a dedicated shotgunner, there is no better news. JAMES H. PHILLIPS is a columnist for this newspaper. He can be reached at jahoph@

of a bird will be most useful for identification and about basic bird groupings such as waders, ducks, or perching birds. Part two is all about feather colors and patterns. Instead of trying to memorize every color and pattern on a bird, learn to do more with less information, focusing on specific body parts that will lead to the right identification. “The lessons are packed with interactive exercises, multimedia, and quizzes so students can really practice new skills, not just listen to somebody talk about it,” said the Cornell Lab’s

Dr. Kevin McGowan, who created the tutorial content. “The response so far has been great-everybody wants more.” Each tutorial costs $29 and can be accessed as often as needed for six months after signup. The lessons were developed in partnership with eCornell at Cornell University. For other online learning opportunities from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, people can visit its public courses website. “It’s all about cultivating knowledge and an appreciation for nature,” said McGowan, “Plus it’s just plain fun!”

Brief • No defense from suspect in 2009 Fort Hood shooting FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The soldier on trial for the deadly 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood refused to put up a fight on Wednesday, resting his case without calling a single witness or testifying in his own defense. Maj. Nidal Hasan could face the death penalty if convicted for the attack that killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 others at the Texas military base. But when given the chance to rebut prosecutors’ lengthy case — which included nearly 90 witnesses and hundreds of pieces of evidence — the Army psychiatrist declined. About five minutes after court began Wednesday, a day after prosecutors rested their case, the judge asked Hasan how he wanted to proceed. He answered: “The defense rests.” The judge, Col. Tara Osborn, then asked Hasan: “You have the absolute right to remain silent. You do not have to say anything. You have the right to testify if you choose. Understand?” Hasan said he did.

Coalition targets state’s proposed gay marriage ban INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A coalition of businesses and activist groups who launched a push Wednesday to defeat an amendment that would write Indiana’s same-sex marriage ban into the state constitution warned that if it passes it would set the state back and undermine the rights of its gay and lesbian residents. The push by the new Freedom Indiana coalition heralds an expected battle in Indiana’s next legislative session, not just between same-sex marriage opponents and gay rights advocates, but also big corporations who contend such a ban would be bad for business . More than 200 people, some holding blue signs reading “Liberty for All Hoosiers,” filled downtown Indianapolis’ Artsgarden for the lunch-hour announcement of the new group. Two of Indiana’s top employers — Indianapolis-based drugmaker Eli Lilly and Co., and Columbus-based engine manufacturer Cummins Inc. — are among its members, along with Indiana Equality Action, Freedom to Marry, the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana and other activist groups. Freedom Indiana’s campaign manager is Megan Robertson, a Republican who ran U.S. Rep. Luke Messer’s successful 2012 campaign to win the eastern Indiana seat Rep. Mike

Pence vacated to run for governor. She said the coalition’s push to defeat the amendment in the state’s Republican-controlled Legislature will be a bipartisan effort. Robertson said lawmakers would be hearing in the next legislative session from many Republicans who oppose the amendment, which she said would threaten the rights of gay and lesbian residents and harm Indiana’s reputation. “We want to make sure all Hoosiers enjoy liberty and freedom. It doesn’t matter whether you’re straight or gay, male or female, young or old, rural or urban, Republican, Democrat or Libertarian,” Robertson told the gathering. She said the amendment is unnecessary because Indiana law already defines marriage as between a man and woman. Indiana lawmakers passed the amendment in 2011, but they must pass it a second time in 2014 in order to put it to voters for a statewide referendum. Indiana voters would have to approve the amendment for it to be added to the state’s constitution. Indiana is the latest state to consider adding a gay marriage ban into its constitution. North Carolina voters approved a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in May 2012.

Manning gets 35 years for spilling U.S. secrets FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Army Pfc. Bradley Manning stood at attention in his crisp dress uniform Wednesday and learned the price he will pay for spilling an unprecedented trove of government secrets: up to 35 years in prison, the stiffest punishment ever handed out in the U.S. for leaking to the media. Flanked by his lawyers, Manning, 25, showed no reaction as military judge Col. Denise Lind announced the sentence without explanation in a proceeding that lasted just a few minutes. A gasp could be heard among the spectators, and one woman buried her face in her hands. Then, as guards hurried Manning out of the courtroom, about a half-dozen supporters shouted from the back: “We’ll keep fighting for you, Bradley!” and “You’re our hero!” With good behavior and credit for the more than

three years he has been held, Manning could be out in as little as seven years, said his lawyer, David Coombs. The soldier was also demoted and will be dishonorably discharged. The sentencing fired up the long-running debate over whether Manning was a whistleblower or a traitor for giving more than 700,000 classified military and diplomatic documents, plus battlefield footage, to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. By volume alone, it was the biggest leak of classified material in U.S. history, bigger even than the Pentagon Papers a generation ago. In a statement from London, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange decried Manning’s trial and conviction as “an affront to basic concepts of Western justice.” But he called the sentence a “significant tactical victory” because the soldier could be paroled so quickly.

Shrinking funds limit tourism’s potential Tourism is not exactly the first category that comes to mind when discussing the most important industries in Indiana, particularly when the list of attractions is put alongside those in such neighboring states as Kentucky, Illinois and ... there are a number Michigan. Nevertheof tourism pockets in less, the Indiana that could be hospitality and visitor attractive to visitors trade does a pretty from outside the state. play significant role in the economy of Indiana. More than 257,000 jobs in the state are related to hospitality and tourism, producing more than $6.74 billion in annual wages. Those numbers alone should suffice to further exploit the state’s potential, but Indiana officials appear to be drawing purse strings tighter on budgets that might be used to promote areas that could be of interest not only to people from other states but Hoosiers themselves. Mark Newman, Indiana’s new tourism director, alluded to this cost-cutting when discussing how much money is dedicated to promotion and development at the state level. According to the Indianapolis Business Journal, the office of tourism development has seen its budget shrink from $3.9 million in 2009 to less than $2 million today. To put that number into perspective, consider that neighboring Michigan shells out $27.4 million on its iconic Pure Michigan campaign and Illinois more than doubles that outlay. Admittedly, some past efforts at promoting Hoosier tourism opportunities have left something to be desired. One only has to think back to the Wander Indiana program of several years past to understand why budget-conscious legislators might be leery of spending much on ad campaigns. Nevertheless, there are a number of tourism pockets in Indiana that could be attractive to visitors from outside the state. Our neighbors to the north, Columbus, should serve as an example of how effective promotion can result in significant earnings. Before the opening of the Miller House to visitors two years ago, the Indianapolis Museum of Art launched an aggressive public relations campaign in various national media outlets. That, coupled with national television exposure through the CBS “Sunday Morning” program, resulted in a flood of reservations not only for tours of the home of the famed Columbus philanthropist but for the architectural tours offered by the Columbus Area Visitors Center. Here at home, area businesses, including Larrison’s Diner in downtown Seymour, report customers stopping by to check out the local haunts of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Mellencamp. Our region also attracts lovers of the outdoors with the Hoosier National Forest, Jackson-Washington State Forest and the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge. The Indiana General Assembly did offer individual communities the opportunity to raise their own tourism funds through an innkeeper tax, and that has certainly been critical to the work of Jackson County tourism. However, many counties either did not avail themselves of the opportunity or had insufficient resources to benefit from such an effort. Brown County, for instance, has had a long tradition of being a tourist mecca, but that reputation can dim as we pass from one generation to another. There must be a constant reminder of the assets that exist within the state. The less than $2 million that is currently spent on the tourism development office doesn’t leave a lot of opportunity for self-promotion.

Letters To The Editor • Service to celebrate a special gentleman To the editor: This letter is about a very special gentleman. I want to let the community know that there will be a special “Celebration of Life” Service for Mr. Al Marley at First United Methodist Church, 1203 E. Seventh St., Auburn this coming Sunday, Aug. 25, at 2 p.m. “Al,” as he was affectionately known, passed away July 30 at Community Howard Regional Hospital in Kokomo. Many knew Al and his wife, Dorothy, as longtime active and vigorous members of the Auburn community. Dorothy died Jan. 23, 2009. They were beloved by all who knew them. Following Dorothy’s passing, Al had moved to Kokomo to be near his children. It seemed obvious to me that many folks who knew Al would want to honor his memory and his family by being present at this special service. Al’s funeral service was held in Russiaville Friday, Aug. 2, at the Stout and Son Funeral Home. Burial was in Gosport Cemetery, Gosport, Ind.,

Let the real grandparenting roles begin We ran into the Westcotts after they’d spent a weekend with their son, daughter-in-law and 2-year-old grandson. They were still shaking. “They would let the kid play with the Mom’s smartphone,” Grandma Jane told us. “When they told him to stop and eat, he slammed it on the floor and wailed. Why would you let a child play with a $500 phone? “Then they would ask him what he wanted to eat. Just an open-ended question, ‘What do you want to eat?’ Who cares what he wants to eat? He’s 2! You don’t ask a kid what he wants for dinner, you just make it and put it on his plate. Of course his answer was always ‘ice cream.’ So they had to say ‘Not for dinner,’ which sent the kid into screaming fits. So now the kid’s unhappy, the parents are unhappy, and we’re unhappy. What a wonderful meal. “And that was just one hour of a 48-hour weekend. The rest of it was worse. The kid had no bedtime, he doesn’t know what the word ‘no’ means, and he runs around at 500 miles an hour like

his hair’s on fire and screams at the drop of a hat. The screaming is unbelievable. Half the time I’d come running because I thought he had cut off a finger, and the parents wouldn’t even turn around. They can tell the difference JIM between ‘I cut off my finger’ and ‘I MULLEN want a cookie,’ but I can’t. It’s unnerving.” All this from proud Grandma Jane, who I know to be a kind and gentle person. The fun family weekend they were looking forward to turned out to be a 3-D “Dr. Phil” episode — one full of poor choices, bad parenting and utter frustration. And Jane was taking a much gentler line than Grandpa Dan, whose every other sentence was “If a kid of mine ever acted like that …” He didn’t know what he would do, but he would certainly tell the child to

behave. “Of course, you can’t say anything,” said Dan, “or you’re the bad guy.” Why can’t you say anything? Why can’t you be the bad guy? If you don’t speak up, who will? Aren’t you doing the same thing the 2-year old’s parents are doing — rewarding bad behavior? The grandparents are scared that if they say something, they’ll never see the grandkid again. As if that would be a bad thing. Dan and Jane would love to spend some time with a well-behaved grandchild, but who needs the agita of this one? Dan and Jane seem to have forgotten they were just as riled up the last time the kid visited, three months ago, as they will be again three months from now on the child’s next holiday visit. Not so long ago, when everyone you were related to lived on the same block, grandparents could pass along their experience and wisdom — and yes, all their wacky old-fashioned ideas — in small doses. When the new parents lived nearby, you could say, “I learned the hard way that it’s easier

to just put food on the table; the kid won’t know he has a choice if you don’t give him one” without it blowing up into a big scene. Another day, you might mention that rewarding bad behavior makes for a long day. Besides, everything doesn’t sink in the first time. Things have to be reinforced over and over. Now that many of our family members live six states away from each other, many of us only see our families on occasional weekends and holidays. There’s no time to cram a lifetime of experience and advice into one weekend. It’s self-defeating anyway. All new parents like to think they won’t make the same mistakes with their children that their parents made with them. And they don’t — instead, they make new, even worse, mistakes. Pointing that out isn’t hurting new parents. It’s helping them. JIM MULLEN is a syndicated columnist with Newspaper Enterprise Association. He can be contacted at JimMul

Halferty takes the helm at Waterloo church BY OCTAVIA LEHMAN

AUBURN — Mike Halferty was surprised when he received his appointment to Waterloo United Methodist Church. “They usually don’t send you seven miles from your old church,” Halferty said. Halferty, the former pastor at Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church and Maple Grove Methodist Church, is now the full-time pastor at the Waterloo church. Halferty served as the pastor at Mount Pleasant and Maple Grove for 6 1/2 years. In the United Methodist tradition, Halferty said it’s normal for pastors to be sent to different churches. Most appointments though, are made in new communities. “They send you where there is a need,” he said. He and his wife, Tricia, have moved into the church parsonage and are eager to become a part of the Waterloo community. “There are a lot of possibilities,” Halferty said, about living in Waterloo. “I used to live in the country, and it was harder to reach people,” Halferty said. “Now people are out walking around.” Halferty has started

would enter through the main door and would not pass multiple classrooms to get to the cafeteria, she noted. As a taxpayer, Richardson said, she favors the plan because it costs $4 million less than the other option under consideration. Third-grade teacher Lorna Schlosser agreed that Plan C would allow the McKenney-Harrison school family to be in a more cohesive unit. “I concur that Plan C would meet our needs greatly,” Schlosser added. Third-grade teacher Jennifer Seiler said students would not have long distances to travel between areas in the school under Plan C. That would cut down in the loss of learning time, she added. “Plan C meets all the needs,” Seiler added. Principal Julia Tipton thanked the board for allowing teachers to offer input throughout the planning process. “It was a collaborative process,” she said. The board has said it hopes to be ready to vote on a plan at its September meeting. State law requires any option above $10 million to be placed on a referendum for a public vote. In other business Tuesday: • The district will make upgrades for power factor corrections at DeKalb High school using money from

the deferred maintenance account. Chief financial officer Lance Brauchla said Indiana Michigan Power can track the district’s power factor, defined as the amount of electricity put through the system that the district actually uses and gets billed for. The high school now is using about 70 percent of the power being sent its way, Brauchla said. “The revenue lost by that unused electricity is unacceptable to them, resulting in a penalty that will be added to our bill on a monthly basis. Given our usage, that penalty could be as high as $6,000-plus per month,” Brauchla said in a memo to the board. The district can increase its efficiency so the high school is using about 97 percent of the electricity it is being sent, Brauchla said. Brauchla said the district can install automatic cap banks, but at a cost of up to $85,000. The payback period for the funds spent will be less than 18 months. “Unfortunately I don’t see a way for our district to get around paying to upgrade to the filtered, automatic cap banks,” Brauchla said. “We either pay some upfront to alleviate future charges or do nothing and pay the higher expense for the electricity with no relief.” The board also: • approved the resignations of: bus driver Beth Keller; transportation and

WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Security Agency declassified three secret court opinions Wednesday showing how it scooped up as many as 56,000 emails and other communications by Americans not connected to terrorism annually over three years, revealed the error to the court and then fixed the problem. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper authorized the release. The opinions show that when the NSA reported its inadvertent gathering of American-based Internet traffic to the court in 2011, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ordered the agency to find ways to limit what it collects and how long it keeps it. Three senior U.S. intelligence officials said Wednesday that national security officials realized the extent of its inadvertent collection of Americans’ data from fiber optic cables

in September 2011. One of the officials said the problem became apparent during internal discussions between NSA and Justice Department officials about the program’s technical operation. “They were having a discussion and a light bulb went on,” the official said. The problem, according to the officials, was that the top secret Internet-sweeping operation, which was targeting metadata contained in the emails of foreign users, was also amassing thousands of emails that were bundled up with the targeted materials. Because many web mail services use such bundled transmissions, the official said, it was impossible to collect the targeted materials without also sweeping up data from innocent domestic U.S. users. The officials did not explain, however, why they did not prepare for that possibility when the surveil-

lance program was created and why they discovered it only after the program was well under way. Officials said that when they realized they had an American communication, the communication was destroyed. But it was not clear how they determined whom an email belonged to and whether any NSA analyst had actually read the content of the email. The officials said the bulk of the information was never accessed or analyzed. As soon as the extent of the problem became clear, the officials said, the Obama administration provided classified briefings to both Senate and House intelligence committees within days. At the same time, officials also informed the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which later issued the three 2011 rulings released Wednesday — with redactions — as part of the government’s latest disclosure of documents.

Egypt’s ex-leader under house arrest CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s prime minister ordered Wednesday that deposed autocrat Hosni Mubarak be placed under house arrest after he’s released from prison following more than two years in detention. The announcement came hours after a court ordered Mubarak be released for the first time since he was first detained in April 2011, a move threatening to further stoke tension in a deeply divided Egypt. Many feared Mubarak’s release would amplify Islamist allegations that last month’s military coup was a step toward restoring the old regime. Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi said in a statement that he ordered Mubarak be put under house arrest as part of the emergency measures put in place this month. The decision appeared designed to ease some of the criticism over Mubarak being freed from prison and ensure he

appears in court next week for a separate trial. Prison officials said Mubarak may be released as early as Thursday. It is not clear where Mubarak will be held under house arrest, whether in one of his residences or in a hospital considering his frail health. Since his ouster, Mubarak’s supporters have released conflicting details about his health, including that the 85 year old suffered a stroke, a heart attack and at times went into a coma. His critics called these an attempt to gain public sympathy and court leniency. His wife, Suzanne, has been living in Cairo and keeping a low-profile, occasionally visiting Mubarak and their two sons in prison. But security officials said Mubarak was more likely to be moved to a military hospital because of his ailing health. The order for Mubarak’s

release followed an appeal by his lawyers in one of his corruption cases. He is also on trial on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters in the 2011 uprising against him that could put him back behind bars. He faces investigation into at least two other corruption cases as well. The prospect of Mubarak being freed, even if only temporarily, would feed into the larger crisis bedeviling Egypt: the violent fallout from the July 3 coup that unseated President Mohammed Morsi, an Islamist who became Egypt’s first freely elected president following Mubarak’s ouster. Mubarak’s release “will cause chaos,” said human rights lawyer Nasser Amin. “It will be used by Islamists as proof of the return of the old regime … and can lead to new alliances between revolutionary groups and political Islam.”

SYRIA: Russia decries reports as ‘alarmist’ said the Obama administration had requested that the U.N. “urgently investigate this new allegation.” “If the Syrian government has nothing to hide and is truly committed to an impartial and credible investigation of chemical weapons use in Syria, it will facilitate the U.N. team’s immediate and unfettered access to this site,” Earnest said. Almost exactly one year ago, President Barack Obama called chemical weapons a “red line” for potential military action, and in June, the U.S. said it had conclusive evidence that Assad’s regime had used chemical weapons against opposition forces. But the possibility of intervention seemed ever smaller after Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in a letter this week that the administration is opposed to even limited action because it believes rebels fighting the Assad government wouldn’t

support American interests. Russia decried Wednesday’s reports as “alarmist.” Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich denounced an “aggressive information campaign” laying full blame on the Syrian government as a provocation aimed at undermining efforts to convene peace talks between the two sides. The regime began shelling the capital’s eastern suburbs of Zamalka, Arbeen and Ein Tarma around 3 a.m. as part of a fierce government offensive in the area, which has a strong rebel presence, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group. The heavy thud of artillery and rockets, as well as the grinding roar of fighter jets, could be heard by Damascus residents throughout the night and early Wednesday, and a pall of gray smoke hung over the towns.

GARAGE: Museum plans to show off new building Automobile Museum will be offering the first public tours of its new Collection Conservation Center, a freestanding building on the south side of the museum. Back in Noble County, the tour visits Butch Lash’s elaborate replica of a Shell service station on the northwest edge of Kendallville. It features more than 60 vintage Shell gasoline pumps and, like Monesmith, Lash collects Coca-Cola memorabilia. For its fifth stop, the tour stretches farther south than ever to visit Rick Walters’ collection at 6600 Ardmore Ave., Fort Wayne.

Museum holding garage sale through Sunday AUBURN — The National Auto & Truck Museum is conducting a garage sale of surplus items Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visitors to Sunday’s Garage Cruise from noon to 4 p.m. also will see the sale items. They include a go-kart, an automobile passenger compartment, three table saws and a motor-driven model carousel plus many other items. “A lot of this is ‘make an offer,’” said Don Grogg, executive director of the museum. “We need the room, so this stuff’s going.”

GARRETT — Prairie Heights coach Tina Sailor learned something about her team during Wednesday’s non-conference volleyball game at Garrett: Her Panthers aren’t quitters. After dropping the opening set against the Railroaders and trailing 7-1 in Game 2, Sailor’s Panthers responded to score a 13-25, 25-23, 25-17, 25-21 victory. “I called a time out and asked them if they were done,” Sailor explained. “They said no they weren’t and completely turned it around.” Tressa Terry was 21-for-21 serving, with eight kills and 20 assists for the Panthers. “Our goal, because we’re young, is to not roll over if we get down,” Terry explained. “The seniors, we have to take control of the game and not get down on ourselves.” Shawna Carbone had eight kills and four blocks for Heights. Allison Young and McKenzie Kain each had 12 digs. For Garrett, Taylor Smith contributed 20 kills, six blocks, 16 digs and 14 assists. Rachel Stafford had nine kills and Lyndsey Gibson had 17 digs and eight kills. The Railroaders also got 34 digs from Mary Hoeffel and 20 assists from Rachel DePew. “When we play together and talk we play well,” said Garrett coach Sallie Raftery. “When we don’t talk, we don’t play well.” The Railroaders certainly had things working in Game 1. The squad used two kills and a block from Smith to jump ahead 5-1 at the outset. Garrett took its margin to double digits late in the match and put Game 1 away with kills by Stafford and Drue Bodey, along with an ace from Lyndsey Gibson. Just like the first set, Garrett jumped out in Game 2. Taylor had four-straight plays at the net that

resulted in points during a 7-1 start for the Railroaders. But then Heights came charging back. “We changed our offense and really turned it around,” Sailor said. “I was proud of how we adjusted and proud of the heart and fight that was in us.” The Panthers came through with a 12-0 run, highlighted by a Carbone ace and two kills by Terry. The contest was tied at 23-all in the late going, but Heights followed with a score on a tip by Havanna Kleeberg and went

on to win 25-23. Prairie Heights went up 19-9 in Game 3, with Carbone coming through with several key plays at the net. The senior later gained the game point as the Panthers won 25-17. Game 4 was tied several times, the last at 20-20. Haley Kleeberg broke the deadlock with a kill and Havanna Kleeberg closed the game with a kill. “I knew it was in them, they had the intensity and the heart,” Sailor said. “They beat a great team.”

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Kyle Busch won the NASCAR Truck Series race Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway for his record 14th overall victory on the high-banked, 0.533-mile oval. The Sprint Cup driver took fresh tires with 16 laps to go, passed Ryan Blaney for the lead with six laps left and held off Timothy Peters in a race to the finish that ended with Peters crashing on the frontstretch. “He wrecked a pretty good race truck and I hate it for him,” Busch said. “But, we had a pretty good race truck. We got behind with a penalty on pit road, but we just stuck in there and persevered to get back to the front.” Busch broke a tie with Darrell Waltrip for the NASCAR track victory record. Busch has four victories at the track in the Truck Series, five in Sprint Cup and five in the Nationwide Series. “Some might say you’re not breaking anything until you win 12 Cup races,” Busch said. “I’ve been fortunate in my career to have a lot of great vehicles here to race. I’ve won here with a lot of different vehicles, a lot of different crew chiefs. I’d like to be able to win 13 Cup races and break that record, too.” The victory was his third in eight Truck starts this season and pushed his career total to 33. Busch also has three victories this year in Sprint Cup and eight in Nationwide. He has 119 victories in NASCAR’s top three series — 27 in Cup, and a record 59 in Nationwide. Busch started 10th in the No. 51 Toyota and worked his way up to second early in the race.

Ichiro gets 4,000th as Yanks beat Jays NEW YORK (AP) — Alfonso Soriano hit a tiebreaking two-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning, Ichiro Suzuki got his 4,000th hit between the major leagues and Japan, and the Yankees handed the Toronto Blue Jays their 12th straight loss in New York, 4-2 on Wednesday night. David Huff (1-0) pitched one-hit ball in five innings of relief to shut down the Blue Jays before New York finally got to Toronto’s R.A. Dickey. The 39-year-old Suzuki hit a liner off Dickey (9-12) that bounced just beyond diving third baseman Brett Lawrie for the milestone hit in the first inning. Suzuki broke a tie with Lou Gehrig when he got his 2,722nd major league hit in his 13th season. The speedy outfielder amassed 1,278 hits in nine seasons with Orix of Japan’s Pacific League. Suzuki’s teammates streamed out of the dugout and surrounded him at first base, Curtis Granderson giving him the first hug. A grinning Suzuki

then faced the cheering fans and bowed. When he went to his position in right field for the second inning, Suzuki tipped his cap to fans who greeted him with a standing ovation. Ken Griffey Jr., a former teammate with the Seattle Mariners, congratulated Suzuki with a message shown on the video board at Yankee Stadium. Yankees infielder Jayson Nix broke his left hand when he was hit by a pitch in the second inning. Adam Warren started for New York to give 41-year-old Andy Pettitte one more day after the Yankees stayed on rotation for their doubleheader Tuesday. He gave up two runs in three-plus innings, including Josh Thole’s tying homer in the fourth. It was Thole’s first homer with the Blue Jays. Huff relieved and didn’t allow a hit until Lawrie led off the eighth with an infield single. Huff walked four, one intentionally, but never was in real trouble.

Viciedo’s grand slam helps ChiSox to win BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Dayan Viciedo hit his second career grand slam to highlight a five-run inning for the White Sox, and Andre Rienzo picked up his first career win for Chicago by shutting down the punchless Kansas City Royals in a 5-2 victory Wednesday night. Rienzo (1-0) allowed only a sacrifice fly to Mike Moustakas while cruising through six innings to win for the first time in five starts. The Brazilian right-hander allowed just five hits and two walks in helping the White Sox win their season-best fifth straight game. Addison Reed worked the ninth

for his second save of the series and 33rd on the year. Viciedo’s grand slam off Jeremy Guthrie (12-10) in the fourth followed an RBI single by Adam Dunn that had given the White Sox the lead. Associated Press Reds 10, Diamondbacks 7 Shin-Soo Choo went 4 for 5 with a homer and three RBIs to spark Cincinnati’s offensive outburst. The Reds opened up a six-game lead over Arizona in the race for the National League’s second wild-card spot. Cincinnati remained third in the NL Central, but moved

to 2½ games behind first-place Pittsburgh, which lost at San Diego. Mike Leake allowed four runs in the fifth inning, but was dominant in his other five innings for first win in his past five starts. Leake (11-5) allowed six hits and four runs with no walks and three strikeouts while the Reds were building an 8-0 lead. Tigers 7, Twins 1 Torii Hunter hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the seventh inning and scored from second base on a passed ball to help Detroit beat Minnesota. Drew Smyly (5-0) struck out two in a perfect inning in relief

of Anibal Sanchez. Jose Veras entered with two outs in the eighth inning and closed the game for his first save with the Tigers. Kevin Correia (8-10) allowed four runs — two earned — and nine hits over 6 2-3 innings. Indians 3, Angels 1 Justin Masterson pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer and Cleveland completed a three-game sweep of Los Angeles. The Indians, who came in 5 1/2 games behind Detroit in the AL Central and 3 1/2 behind Oakland in the race for the second wild card spot, surpassed last season’s win total with 35 games to spare.




Major growth spurt at Heights BY KEN FILLMORE

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — Something is brewing at Prairie Heights, and structure, attention to detail and the team concept are making it all possible. The Panthers return 16 starters from a team that began to put the pieces together and learned how to compete last season in going 3-7, including 3-5 in the Northeast Corner Conference. Sixteen of the roughly 40 players on the roster are seniors. A 17th senior in the program is a manager who was unable to play this season because of a medical condition. “There has been much higher commitment. They’ve found their pride, and we’ve had a good installation period,” secondyear PH coach Vincent Royer said. “We finally have senior leadership and that is something we have not had here in a long time. The kids view (the Lakeland game) as an opportunity for the first time in a long time. They finally understand what team means. “The level of football knowledge is so much greater. The comprehension level has risen. I couldn’t be prouder of how they responded.”


The Prairie Heights football team for 2013: front row, front left, Zach Maillard, Alex Flynn, Joey Barry, Lane Waite, Dylan Stayner, David Rodriguez, Branson Mast, Autin Sib and manager Zach Mantle. Second row, Rob May, Dalton Moore, Wyatt Rodgers, Bailey Thompson, Riley Jones, Derrick Mills, Spencer Baughman, Corey Brown, Corey Johnson and Kyler West. Third row, Levi Tuckerman, Austin Shepard, Rob Atkinson,

It was an emphasis on basics last season for the Panthers, and that did not just mean the play on the field. It was removing selfish agendas, no matter how big or small they appear, maintaining a positive outlook and having basic respect for one another. “They keep each other in check and look out for each other,” Royer said.

The football knowledge has risen so much at Heights that it will lead to a more diverse attack on both sides of the ball. A large majority of the seniors will play at least two positions apiece, including two-time Class 2A All-State honorable mention safety Zach Shepard, running back Bobby Blum, quarterback Kyler West, linebackers

Kegan McGraw, Cassten Everidge, Bobby Blum, Dan Myer, Riley Rasler and Kenyon Helmuth. Fourth row, Mike May, Clay McCullum, Dakota Johnson, Lance Lochamire, Tylor Christman, Brady Johnson, Zach Shepard, Kade Gerbers and Alex Bentley. Back row, trainer Andy Shoup, assistant coaches Dalton Royer and Tyler Terry, head coach Vincent Royer, and assistant coaches Nick Pfafman and Rich Frey.

Joey Barry and Dylan Stayner, linemen Lance Lochamire and Alex Bentley, and versatile skilled guys Corey Johnson and Levi Tuckerman. “The beauty is that we’re interchangeable,” Royer said. “There’s been a lot of pressure competing for their spots. You need to be internally competitive in order to be externally

competitive.” Shepard is always around the football and has been one of the top tacklers in the area the past two seasons. He is a thinking man’s athlete and has responded well to the challenge of taking on more responsibilities. Bobby Blum had a breakout campaign in 2012 with 1,161 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns.

Royer made two significant changes to his coaching staff with the additions of his son Dalton and Panther baseball coach Nick Pfafman. Dalton Royer attends Western Michigan University, graduated from Sturgis (Mich.) High in 2012 and will coach the quarterbacks among his various duties. Pfafman has turned Prairie Heights baseball around by leading the team to 30 wins over the past two seasons. Vincent Royer is extremely appreciative of the community and school support. “We’ve come up with one brand, one icon, full sport for Prairie Heights athletics. The weight room has been revamped,” he said. “Our gridiron club has never missed a day of lunch for the boys.” The Panthers will see how much they have grown in the first three weeks by taking on the top three teams in the NECC over the past decade. Heights hosts Lakeland in the Milk Can game Friday and hosts Churubusco in week three on Sept. 6. The Panthers play at Fairfield Aug. 30. As it has been the past few years, PH, Fremont and Central Noble will play the NECC’s big three in the first three weeks of the season.

Chargers hopeful for a turnaround BY BOB BUTTGEN

LIGONIER — There’s no doubt the entire West Noble High School football team, from the head coach down to the watergirls, are dedicated to seeing the team break out of its multi-year slump. The Chargers open their 2013 season at home Friday against NECC rival Angola. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. in Ligonier. “We are going to be successful,” head coach Monte Mawhorter said, “if. If we can learn to play every down like it’s the last one.” Mawhorter lost only two full-time seniors from last year’s squad that went 1-9. This year, there’s five seniors on the roster along with a host of returning letter winners now in the 10th and 11th grades. “We have good numbers and a lot of depth and competition for playing time,” said Mawhorter, who enters his 13th season at the helm of the Charger football team, making him one of the more senior coaches in the conference. “Most of our starters have some experience at the varsity level. The newcomers are all contributing a lot and will see playing time on both sides of the ball,” he said. Mawhorter will stick with the offense that he has used for several years, using split backs and an experienced quarterback who must be able to both run or throw the ball at a moment’s notice. Senior Landon Stover returns at the QB spot, a job he has held fulltime for the past two seasons. Stover, 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds, threw for 612 yards last year, with five touchdowns but 15 interceptions. Sophomore Zayne Swartz will be the back-up quarterback for West Noble.

Taking care of the running dues for the Chargers are a host of guys, including sophomore Bradley Martin, who rushed for 157 yards as a ninth grader. Levi Nelson, a 190-pound junior, and Peyton Shrock, a 6-foot, 165-pound junior, will also be in the backfield for the Chargers. The Chargers averaged 178 yards rushing last season but only 65 yards passing. Handling most of the tight-end duties for West Noble will be junior Sean Bush, 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, and Kyler Warble, a 6-foot, 210-pound sophomore. At wide receiver posts are Riley McFarren, a junior

and Shrock, who will add versatility to the Charger offense. Experience and good size describe the Charger line on both sides of the ball. Junior Steve Ramirez will handle the all-important center duties for the offense. He’s 6-foot and 270 pounds with lots of playing time under his belt. While Levi Nelson will carry the ball, he’s also expected to see playing time on the offensive line at guard, along with Luke Wechter, a junior registering in at 195 pounds. Both offensive tackles are senior returners who earned all-conference honors last season as juniors. Carlos Medina is 6-foot, 210 pounds while

Adam Hursey stands six-four and weighs in at 280 pounds. Cam Myers and Tyler Huff will also see playing time in the tackle spots as needed. Mawhorter will be depending on his defense to keep the Chargers’ opponents in check, and with good reason. He has 10 defensive returners from last year. That squad enjoyed success in stopping their opponents’ passing game with an average of 100 yards a game given up in the air. Nelson will find himself also playing defensive end, along with Warble, Joe Lee and Zack Ratliff. Medina and Hursey will be two-way players, lining up as nose guards on defensive, as will

Ramirez. Jesse Newman, a 280-pound sophomore, adds more size to the line. An aggressive corps of linebackers will be anchored by Wechter and Warble, who are cousins, with help from Ethan Kizer. Shrock and Martin will be in the secondary for the Chargers. Gaining additional playing time for the Chargers are another pair of cousins, Josh Alexander, a senior at the tight-end position, and Dillon Alexander, a junior who be on the line. Brandon Moser, a junior, will see action at the defensive back and wide receiver spots for the Chargers this season. One of the key losses from last year’s team is

personal for Mawhorter. His son, Erik, was an all-conference player last on both offense and defense. He’s now on the roster at Trine University in Angola. At the coaching level, veteran Tom Marsh returns to Mawhorter’s cabinet after a year’s absence. Other assistants are Grant Baumgartner, Lance McFarren and Nick Bradley. The Chargers know they have their work cut out for this year, but that’s no different than seasons past. Mawhorter said Levi Nelson came up with the official slogan for this year’s Charger football program: “Do it until you can’t do it no more.”

situation to step into.” Coach Tom Crean issued a statement late Tuesday night, crediting Cheaney with helping Indiana to reclaim a prominent spot on the national college basketball map over the past two seasons. Crean also said he believes Cheaney has a bright coaching future. “He is of high character and has a great combination of work habits and work ethic,” Crews said. “Calbert is very good at transferring his knowledge to the players.” Cheaney won the Wooden, Naismith and Big Ten player of the year awards following the 1992-93 season.

arrived in Madison after four years at Utah State, taking over the 23rd-ranked Badgers following the awkward departure of Bret Bielema for Arkansas. Bielema led the Badgers to a 68-24 record over seven seasons before leaving in December, before Wisconsin’s third straight Rose Bowl appearance. Enter Andersen, who led a remarkable resurgence during his four years at Utah State. A program that had just six wins in its previous three seasons won 26 under Andersen, including a school-record 11 victories in 2012, a WAC title and a 41-15 win over Toledo in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Displaying a soft-spoken and mild-mannered demeanor in a recent interview, Andersen can be tough, too. It’s a personality

that seems to fit in well in the upper Midwest. At work, he expects everyone’s full effort. But he doesn’t want his coaches or players to get overtaxed, either, and encourages them to get out of the office as much as possible. Training camp practices have been open to the public and media, too, adding to the new vibe at Wisconsin. The Badgers host Massachusetts to open the season Aug. 31. “It’s unique. Coach Andersen has been able to get a lot out of us without overtaxing us,” linebacker Chris Borland said. “We’ve been on the same page as coaches and players. Working hard, getting things done, but keeping guys safe out there.” The adjustment to running a power conference

program has gone well, he said. Yes, there may be CEO-like duties with more when it comes to football operations, but Andersen stresses that attitude ends when dealing with players. In deciding to make the move, Andersen sought a program that had players at a program with a similar attitude as he had at Utah State with hard-working players and mainly model citizens off the field. It helped that he made a trip to Camp Randall last September, when Wisconsin held off the Aggies 16-14. The recruiting intensity is much different, though, at Wisconsin. He is in a conference, after all, competing with the likes of Urban Meyer at Ohio State and Brady Hoke at Michigan.

BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Indiana is losing former star Calbert Cheaney to Saint Louis, where he will be a full-time assistant coach for fellow former Hoosier Jim Crews. Cheaney has been the Hoosiers’ director of basketball operations since June 2011. Cheaney was a sophomore in high school when Crews said he first met him, and he joins a school that’s 54-16 the last two seasons. “I have known Jim Crews for a long time, and I’m eager to work with him and the rest of the SLU staff,” Cheaney said in a statement. “This is a great coaching

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Any concerns about how Wisconsin’s Gary Andersen would be accepted by the team’s strong fan base may have been dissolved in the wind blowing through a cornfield. A farmer recently decided to carve a corn maze with the likeness of the face of the Badgers’ new coach and the school’s signature “W” logo on a football. Welcome to Wisconsin. “The longer you’re here, the more you understand how people are passionate about Wisconsin as a whole and the university, and football is a big part of that,” Andersen said. “I like the football and the motion ‘W’ in it than the other piece of the maze.” It didn’t take long for him to fit in.

But on Saturday in the truck race at Michigan International Speedway, it was young James Buescher taking Busch to school in the closing laps. With a little over four laps left to run, the 23-year-old Buescher was third behind two far-more-experienced drivers, Busch in the lead and second-place Brendan Gaughan. But in the span of two corners, Buescher passed them both and held on for the win, his first of the season and fifth overall in the truck series. “How the 31 (Buescher) can get a run on the 62 (Gaughan), who’s got a run on me is beyond me,” Busch said. “It blows my mind. He got a run on all of us, and I got down in turn three way too low on my entry to try to block, and I got loose. “I don’t know if he was that close to me or not, but I had to save my truck and in doing so he just drove right on by.” Buescher’s victory moved him within one point of Jeb Burton, who is second in the standings, but they’re both a ways out of first place. Matt Crafton is on top with a 51-point lead over Burton. “It’s a good way to start that turnaround,” said Buescher, the defending series champion. “It’s no secret that it’s not the season we’ve been expecting.”

Tony Stewart won’t be behind the wheel again this season Stewart-Haas Racing announced on Monday that Tony Stewart will miss the remainder of the Sprint Cup season due to the broken right tibia and fibula in a sprint car crash Aug. 5 at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Veteran Mark Martin has been hired to drive Stewart’s No. 14 Chevrolet for 12 of the remaining 13 races, with Austin Dillon, who drove for Stewart on Sunday at Michigan, taking the wheel for the Oct. 12 race at Talladega Superspeedway. With Martin moving from his part-time ride in Michael Waltrip Racing’s No. 55 Toyota to Stewart’s car, the No. 55 will be driven by Brian Vickers, who has been sharing the ride with Martin, and team owner Michael Waltrip. Waltrip will drive the No. 55 at Talladega Superspeedway as scheduled earlier in the year. Vickers already has been named fulltime driver of the Aaron’s-sponsored No. 55 for 2014 and 2015. Stewart is expected to return to the No. 14 in time for preseason testing in January 2014. “After consulting with Tony’s doctors and speaking with Tony, we agreed it was best for him to focus on his recovery,” Greg Zipadelli, competition director at Stewart-Haas, said in a team release. “For the No. 14 team, our focus is on positioning them for a run at the owner championship. Mark Martin and Austin Dillon give us the best opportunity to do that, and we certainly appreciate Michael Waltrip Racing and Richard Childress Racing for making Mark and Austin available to us.” Waltrip said in his own team’s release that the agreement between the teams involved is mutually beneficial.

Sports Briefs • Sharapova withdraws from U.S. Open with bad shoulder NEW YORK (AP) — Maria Sharapova pulled out of the U.S. Open on Wednesday because of a right shoulder injury. The U.S. Tennis Association announced the 2006 champion’s withdrawal. Sharapova has played only one match on tour since her second-round loss at Wimbledon in June. “Maria Sharapova is one of the great warriors of the tennis world,” USTA Executive Director and COO Gordon Smith said. “If she withdrew, there’s a serious issue.” Sharapova originally was seeded third at the U.S. Open. The USTA said 2012 Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanksa would shift from No. 4 to No. 3, and all other seeded players below her would move up a spot, too. The USTA said Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova would become the No. 32 seed. The draw for the year’s last Grand Slam tournament is Thursday. Play begins Monday. Sharapova’s surprising exit caps a tumultuous couple of weeks for the four-time major title winner and former No. 1 player. The Russian was sidelined by a hip injury after Wimbledon. Then she hired Jimmy Connors as her coach, an arrangement that lasted all of one match, a loss. Sharapova last skipped the U.S. Open in 2008, when she was off the tour for about 10 months because of surgery on her right shoulder. She won her first major title since that operation at last year’s French Open, completing a career Grand Slam. Earlier Wednesday, former top-10 player Mardy Fish of the United States withdrew from the U.S. Open, citing personal reasons.

Cardinals broadcaster Shannon recovering from heart surgery ST. LOUIS (AP) — Mike Shannon, the former St. Louis Cardinals third baseman who has been a popular radio broadcaster for the team for more than 40 years, is recovering after heart surgery. The Cardinals said Wednesday that Shannon, 74, is resting comfortably and is expected to make a full recovery. He had surgery Monday to replace his aorta valve. The team said the surgery had been planned for some time. Shannon, in a statement through the team, thanked well-wishers and said he expects to return to the broadcast booth before the end of the regular season. A rotation of replacements — former Cardinals pitchers Al Hrabowsky and Rick Horton, and broadcaster Mike Claiborne — will join John Rooney in the radio booth through Sept. 23. Shannon is expected back after that, the team said.




Reader upset with response to confession DEAR ABBY: I’m writing about the letter you printed from “Somewhere in the South” (May 26) who heard someone confess to a crime he had committed at age 12 during one of his Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings. The person asked if he should go to the police. You advised him to talk about it to the “group leader.” Abby, in a 12-step program, there is no formal leader who has a responsibility to report anything to the authorities. There are usually discussion groups led by someone chosen for the night. I am not condoning what the person did at that young age. It was a horrible act. But 12-step programs are based on ANONYMITY. Reporting what is heard at




meetings is completely against what 12-step meetings are all about. It was unfair DEAR of you ABBY to place responsibility on Jeanne Phillips someone who is there for his OWN addiction to tell on another group member. — ANONYMOUS IN THE USA DEAR ANONYMOUS: I received a ton of criticism for my response to that letter. Readers like you wrote to point out that I was misinformed about how these programs work; others berated me for not insisting

the writer notify the police immediately. I was — and still am — of two minds on the question. While it would be satisfying to see “justice done,” I could not bring myself to recommend going against the principle upon which these 12-step programs that have helped thousands of people is based. Another principle of these programs is that people who have hurt others must make amends for what they have done. However, this is the responsibility of the person who committed the crime — NOT someone who overheard mention of it at a meeting. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

On this date: • In 1851, the schooner America outraced more than a dozen British vessels off the English coast to win the America’s Cup. • In 1989, Black Panthers co-founder Huey P. Newton was shot to death in Oakland, Calif. • In 2012, ousted Penn State president Graham Spanier attacked a university-backed report on the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal, calling it a “blundering.’’


Most osteoarthritis managed with medication been getting progressively thinner for years. I didn’t know it, because it wasn’t causing symptoms. But when bone started to rub against bone, I had symptoms — mainly pain. As in my case, the symptoms of osteoarthritis usually develop over many years. The first sign ASK is often joint DOCTOR K. pain after strenuous activity or Dr. Anthony overusing a joint. Joints be stiff in Komaroff may the morning, but loosen up after a few minutes of movement. As the condition gets worse, the pain becomes more continuous. The joint may be mildly tender much of the time, and movement may

cause a crackling or grating sensation. Some people have continual joint pain that is bad enough to interfere with sleep. People with osteoarthritis often have it in more than one joint. It is most common in the knee, hip, lower back, neck and certain finger joints. If you suspect you have osteoarthritis, see your doctor. There’s no definitive test for it. Your doctor will make the diagnosis based on your description of symptoms, a physical examination and perhaps some additional tests. Prepare for your appointment by making a list of your symptoms and the circumstances under which they occur. Do you notice them during or after a particular activity? Are they worse first thing in the morning? Your symptoms — what they are, when they first began and how they’ve changed over time — provide important clues for your doctor. During the physical exam,

DEAR DOCTOR K: My joints hurt. Does that mean I have osteoarthritis? DEAR READER: Your knee aches from time to time, or maybe your fingers don’t seem as nimble as they used to be. That doesn’t mean you have osteoarthritis — but you might. There are many different kinds of arthritis. They all damage the cartilage, the flexible tissue lining joints. Every joint is a spot where two (or more) bones meet. The cartilage in a joint keeps bone from rubbing against bone. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. I am one of its victims: It ruined my right hip and required a total hip replacement. Medical research is starting to understand what leads to the slow degeneration of cartilage seen in osteoarthritis, but we still don’t have a complete picture. In my right hip, for example, the cartilage had


your doctor will watch how you move and will look at your joints for specific abnormalities. The bony enlargement of a joint without swelling is a classic sign of osteoarthritis. The doctor will also move your joints through their range of motion to detect any pain, resistance, unusual sounds or instability. Your doctor may also order an imaging test, such as an X-ray. If you do have osteoarthritis, treatment will help you manage your pain and preserve the function of your affected joints. Most people with osteoarthritis just require pain medicines. But when a joint is badly damaged and the pain can’t be controlled, joint replacement surgery can fix the problem. It surely has for me. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is
