GOOD MORNING Molten aluminum ignites factory fire AUBURN — Molten aluminum caused a fire late Saturday night at Shiloh Industries (formerly Contech), at 1200 Power Drive on the city’s west side, Auburn Fire Chief Mike VanZile said. Firefighters rushed to the factory at 10:28 p.m. to find that a large melting furnace was leaking molten aluminum, which ignited a nearby storage rack and other materials. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and declared the situation under control at 10:54 p.m. The factory makes cast aluminum parts for automobiles.

Car fest sparkplug Randinelli dies BY DAVE KURTZ

AUBURN — Jack Randinelli, a founding father of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival, died unexpectedly Sunday morning on the festival’s final day. Friends said Randinelli suffered a heart attack at his home in Auburn at age 74. Thursday at the festival’s opening event, Randinelli had received an award for his 50th year of serving as a volunteer for the classic-car celebration. Saturday afternoon, he drove his 1932 Auburn automobile in the festival’s Parade of Classics, carrying the parade’s grand

marshal, Wayne Carini, host of the “Chasing Classic Cars” television series. In public life, Randinelli had served as a member of Auburn’s Board of Public Works and Safety since 2000. “Auburn is a better place to live because of Jack Randinelli,” said Mayor Norm Yoder, who chose Randinelli for the board. Like many of Randinelli’s friends, Yoder learned of his death during the awards luncheon for the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club, Sunday morning in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. ACD Club member Dick

Greene of New Jersey said he had breakfast at Randinelli’s home Sunday, then left for the museum only minutes before his friend died. “I don’t think the impact of losing him will be realized,” immediately, Greene said, until a full year of ACD events goes by without Randinelli Randinelli’s presence. “Jack, in my opinion, was a master facilitator. He made things happen and got people together,” Greene said. He had known

Assad warns of war

State to dredge Little Turkey Lake STROH — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources will dredge Little Turkey Lake beginning next month, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division announced Saturday. Beginning sometime during the second week in September and continuing through the end of October, the public access boat launch site on the lake will be closed. Access to the lake will be inaccessible from the boat ramp due to the location of equipment on the lake. Anyone using Little Turkey Lake should watch for navigational hazards during the dredging operation. Danger buoys will mark piping and other equipment. There could be underwater dangers as a result of submerged piping. Work will continue throughout the duration of the project, including weekends. When completed, normal access to the lake from the boat launch will resume. Indiana’s Lake and River Enhancement program is funding the project.

Quintet car stands alone as best BY DAVE KURTZ

AUBURN — Saturday afternoon, Bill Parfet of Michigan put on an impressive display with his five identically painted Auburn automobiles in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival’s Parade of Classics. Sunday, one of those cars claimed the Best of Show trophy in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club’s judging of cars entered in the parade. After driving in a five-car formation through downtown Auburn during the parade, Parfet’s 1933 Auburn V-12 Salon Speedster stood out from the pack in the club’s meticulous judging. Lavine Restorations of Nappanee had finished a fresh restoration of the car only three days earlier. Parfet said he has been collecting cars for 50 years. In his third purchase, he bought the first of his five 1933 Auburns, a Phaeton. “We always had our eye out for a boattail,” Parfet said. Fifteen years ago, he said, “We found an absolutely original one in a museum in Texas and bought it. We did a quick restoration and drove it and drove it and drove it.” Parfet then set out to acquire all five body styles of the massive V-12 Auburn Salon models. Next, in order, he bought a Cabriolet, sedan and Brougham. He liked the silver and purplish-blue paint scheme of his first Auburn, so he painted the others to match. “This is the flagship of the fleet,” he said about the Speedster. “To win Best of Show really means a lot to us.” Parfet can place the trophy

Blue blazer bittersweet BY DAVE KURTZ

AUBURN — On what should have been his happiest moment, Vincent Pietracatella wiped away tears of sadness. Sunday at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club’s awards luncheon, Pietracatella received the club’s Man of the Year award and the blue blazer that comes with it. But less than an hour earlier, Pietracatella learned that his good friend, Jack Randinelli of Auburn, had died from a sudden

heart attack at his home Sunday morning. The news came midway through the awards luncheon. Randinelli also owned one of the club’s blue blazers as the 2004 Man of the Year. “After winning this, I would have gone right to see my friend, Jack,” Pietracatella told the luncheon guests at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum.

PARIS (AP) — Syria’s president warned Monday that the Middle East is a “powder keg” and potential Western military strikes against his country risk triggering a regional war. In an interview with French newspaper Le Figaro, Bashar Assad also was quoted as saying that Syria has challenged the U.S. and France to provide proof to support their allegations that Damascus has used chemical weapons, but that the leaders of both countries “have been incapable of doing that, including before their own peoples.” STUTZMAN President IS SKEPTICAL Barack Obama about action and his French against Syria. counterpart, SEE PAGE A8. Francois Hollande, have accused Assad’s regime of carrying out a deadly chemical attack against rebel-held suburbs of Damascus on Aug. 21. The Syrian government denies the allegations, and blames opposition fighters. Obama initially seemed poised to launch military action, but abruptly announced on Saturday he would first ask Congress for authorization. Hollande also has called for a forceful response against Assad, but is awaiting a decision from Washington first. If the U.S. and France decide to strike, Assad said “everyone will lose control of the situation.” “Chaos and extremism will spread. The risk of a regional war exists,” he added. Asked whether France, which has been a staunch supporter of the opposition, has become an enemy of Syria, Assad said that whoever contributes “financially and militarily to terrorists is an enemy of the Syrian people.” “The French people are not our enemy, but the policy of their government is hostile to the Syrian people. Insofar as French government policy is hostile to the Syrian people, this state will be its enemy,” he said. As the U.S. has been presenting its case to a wary public, the French government on Monday published a nine-page intelligence synopsis that concluded that the Syrian regime launched an attack on Aug. 21 that involved a SEE ASSAD, PAGE A8

Auction proves ‘Auburn is back’ BY AARON ORGAN


Gary Ehinger stands in his studio at his rural Albion home. Behind him are some of the portraits he has taken.

man wins photo Picture Perfect: Albion contest on first attempt BY JAMES TEW

ALBION — Photography is in Gary Ehinger’s blood. His father, Morris, won awards for his photography in contests sponsored by Fort Wayne-area newspapers. His son, Aaron, works as a photographer in Chicago, doing mostly portraits along with some landscapes and cityscapes. And now Gary, who said he started getting into photography only in the last two or three years, has won the fourth annual Perfect Portrait contest run by Digital Photo magazine — the only contest he ever has entered. “I receive a subscription for Digital Photo, and I saw that they had the contest,” Gary said. “I thought I had a pretty good series of portraits to send in, and I thought, ‘What the heck? I’ve never done it before, and I’m going to give it a try.’ “ His father, who taught English at Fairfield Junior High and Ben F. Guyer Middle School in Fort Wayne, had his own darkroom and shot landscape photos during the summer on property the family owned in Michigan. “It was a hobby, but he took it very seriously,” Gary said. However, Gary said he wasn’t bitten by the shutter bug until his son, Aaron, started getting into it about five or six years ago — Aaron eventually went to school at the Chicago School of Photography — and Gary saw “some of the amazing shots that he’s taken.” “To see some of the things that he’s done just amazes me, and I wanted to be able to do the same things,” Gary said. Gary said Aaron also was instrumental in getting him started in doing his own photography. “He’s been my right-hand

man on this, teaching me an awful lot about photography and probably speeding up the process a little bit for me,” Gary said. About eight months after Gary started getting into photography, he and his wife moved from Fort Wayne to their current home near Albion. They gutted a workshop in the garage so Gary could build a studio. Despite his father’s passion for landscapes, Gary said he prefers to shoot portraits. “I think people are a little more interesting to me than landscapes. And it’s hard to get the grandeur type of landscape shots that you want in this area,” he said. Appropriately, the photo


that won the magazine contest was a portrait he took of Aaron. “He was very excited. It’s a two-fer, because I got lucky enough to win it, and then of course it’s his face that wins it,” Gary said. “There were a lot of emails going back and forth on that one. We had a good time with it.” Gary expects his photography will get a boost from the photographic equipment he will receive as prizes for winning the contest. “A lot of the equipment that I’m getting is probably equipment that I normally wouldn’t have bought,” he said. “It’s nice to get a couple high-end quality pieces.” While he is still strictly

an amateur, Gary, who works as vice president for manufacturing at ChromaSource in Columbia City, said he could someday see himself retiring and working full-time as a photographer. “It would be wonderful at some point to know that maybe in another seven or eight years I could retire and do this as a side business,” he said. “That would be something I’d really enjoy.”

Indianapolis leaders defend cricket park INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Sports and civic leaders in Indianapolis are backing a $6 million plan to transform a park on the city’s east side into a 48-acre site that will host national cricket championships despite protests from residents. Critics say the money to create the Indianapolis World Sports Park could be better spent. But Allison

Melangton, chief executive officer of the Indiana Sports Corp., disagrees. “This is a great opportunity for us to test a new market and appeal to a new audience,” Melangton told the Indianapolis Business Journal. “We know we’re stepping into a sport with a very strong world following.” The proposal, particularly the cricket field, has

attracted attention abroad and from companies like Eli Lilly and Dow AgroSciences. Brian Gildea, executive director of Develop Indy, an arm of the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, said the companies see the park as a way to attract employees from all over the world. The USA Cricket Association has agreed to hold its national championships at the site in 2014, 2015 and 2016. But city and association officials don’t yet have estimates on how many people might attend the championships. There’s also no economic impact estimate. “This is an event we hope to grow. We believe the economic impact over time will be worth the investment,” said Marc Lotter, spokesman for

Ballard. “We think this event will bring in new people to the city, and any time you bring in new people to experience our city, that’s a good thing.” Leonard Hoops, chief executive officer of Visit Indy, called criticism of the park “insulting to the folks in the community who do like those sports.” “It surprises me that we clamor as residents (to have) more green spaces and parks, (yet) we’ve been so aggressive as a community to attack this one,” he said. The five multipurpose fields are designed for soccer, lacrosse, hurling, rugby, Australian rules football and Gaelic football, in addition to cricket. Hoops said he wasn’t sure how big the niches for those sports could be.

“It’s been a great,

AUBURN — Just before vehicles began crossing the blocks at the Auctions America Auburn Fall show and sale on Thursday, auction officials took the time to thank sponsors, bidders and patrons. They told the crowd in the main auction building at Auburn Auction Park that the company is working to “put Auburn back on the map.” Saturday, after the third of three Duesenbergs sold for quite literally a fortune, the auctioneer proclaimed, “Auburn is back,” enticing a roar from the audience crowded into the arena. After a weekend that saw sales rise well past $20 million, with more than 1,100 vehicles and attendance significantly heightened, it appeared the auction company met its goal. “I think Auburn is back on the map,” said Auctions America auction manager Keith Koscak. “A lot of people put a lot of hard work in over the last three years to really turn this place around, and we’re obviously committed to supporting the town and the community and growing what we have here, and I think, as a result, we’ve seen a steady increase not only in gate traffic but also a growth in number of cars consigned year after year, and also dollar value sold has grown as well. And now with the national coverage we’ve had with NBC Sports, I think that certainly puts Auburn back on the map.” Koscak said that while official numbers weren’t available, more than 51,000 people funneled through the park’s gates through Saturday, a number expected to ballooned after an unusually busy Sunday. Auction-goers were treated with a show all weekend long.Three Duesenbergs were the weekend’s top-grossing vehicles, highlighted by the sale of a stunning 1930 Model J Convertible Coupe for $1.4 million

• Saturday. Two others sold for $875,000 and $780,000, respectively. A 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona also sold for $395,000. Comparatively, last year’s show produced just three cars that drew more than $200,000. In addition to the quality of vehicles that crossed the block this weekend, the quantity was undeniable. Auctions America pushed more than 1,100 vehicles across its dual blocks through the four-day auction. And they sold. Koscak said Saturday alone saw 80 percent of lots sold. “It’s been a great, great weekend,” said Koscak. “We’ve had some really high sales this weekend and a lot of people here; attendance is definitely up from last year.” Auctions America has made more than $2 million in upgrades and improvements to the auction park since taking over the 42-year-old Labor Day tradition four years ago. Koscak said the staff has worked tirelessly to grow the event. Auctions America has put increased effort into drawing celebrities to the event, and offered family-friendly events such as monster truck and helicopter rides and a motocross show. The deal with NBC Sports Network that broadcast the auction to 80 million homes was icing on the cake. “We’re committed to being here, growing this place and growing Auburn Spring and Auburn Fall and making it the place to be to sell your collector car,” said Koscak. “It’s a nice weekend to enjoy with your family, and we’re happy to be in Auburn.”

Verizon buying out Vodafone stake for $130 billion

Germany tries Nazi war criminal, 92 HAGEN, Germany (AP) — Germany put a 92-yearold former member of the Nazi Waffen SS on trial Monday on charges that he killed a Dutch resistance fighter in 1944. Dutch-born Siert Bruins, who is now German, entered the Hagen state courtroom using a walker, but appeared alert and attentive as the proceedings opened. No pleas are made in the German system, and Bruins offered no statement. His attorney, Klaus-Peter Kniffka, said after the short 35-minute opening session that it was unlikely his client would ever address the court personally. “I will probably deliver a defense declaration, but it depends upon the course of the trial,” he told reporters. The trial comes amid a new phase of German Nazi-era investigations, with federal prosecutors this week expected to announce they are recommending the pursuit of possible charges against about 40 former Auschwitz guards.

Hollywood • Despite bombs, it’s been a great summer for films NEW YORK (AP) — In the end, Hollywood made it through a precarious minefield of summer box-office bombs with a heftier wallet. The summer concluded with a record $4.7 billion in box-office revenue despite much maligned flops like “The Lone Ranger,” ”After Earth” and “White House Down.” The summer movie season closed out on Labor Day weekend as the boy band concert film “One Direction: This Is Us” took in an estimated $18 million from Friday to Monday for Sony Pictures, according to studio estimates Monday. That wasn’t enough to unseat the Weinstein Co. historical drama “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” which stayed on top for the third week with $20 million. It was a positive note on which to end a tumultuous but profitable summer for Hollywood. More than ever before, the industry packed the summer months with big-budget blockbusters that ranged from the hugely successful “Iron Man 3” to the disastrous “The Lone Ranger.” Though the movie business has always been one of hits and misses, this summer brought particular attention to some big whiffs. Yet the box office saw a 10.2 percent increase in revenue over last summer.

NEW YORK (AP) — Verizon will own its wireless business outright after agreeing to a $130 billion deal to buy the 45 percent stake of Verizon Wireless owned by British cellphone carrier Vodafone. The buyout, the secondlargest acquisition deal on record, would give Vodafone PLC additional cash to pursue its expansion ambitions in Europe. Those ambitions include its push to buy up other cellphone providers and to expand into the lucrative world of mobile services. The deal announced Monday would also give Verizon Communications Inc., the opportunity to boost its quarterly earnings, as it would no longer have to share a portion of proceeds from the nation’s No. 1 wireless carrier with Vodafone. Verizon expects the deal to boost its earnings per share by 10 percent once the deal closes. It also boosted its dividend. The deal still has requires approval by regulators and shareholders of both companies. It is expected to close in the first quarter of 2014.

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Looking dazed and sunburned, U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad walked ashore Monday, becoming the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the help of a shark cage. The 64-year-old Nyad swam up to the beach just before 2 p.m. EDT, about 53 hours after starting her journey from Havana on Saturday. As she approached, spectators waded into waist-high water and surrounded her, taking pictures and cheering her on. “I have three messages. One is, we should never, ever give up. Two is, you’re never too old to chase your dream. Three is, it looks like a solitary sport, but it is a team,” she said on the beach. “I have to say, I’m a little bit out of it right now,” Nyad said. She gestured toward her swollen lips, and simply said “seawater.” Her team said she had been slurring her words while out in the water. She was placed on a stretcher on the beach and received an IV before she was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

But her doctor later declared her essentially healthy and expected her to recover quickly from dehydration, swelling and sunburn. “I just wanted to get out of the sun,” she said after coming ashore on a scorching, sunny day amid calm seas. It was Nyad’s fifth attempt and what she had said would be her last try to complete the approximately 110-mile swim. She tried three times in 2011 and 2012. Her first attempt was in 1978. “It’s historic, marvelous,” said Jose Miguel Diaz Escrich, the Hemingway Marina commodore who helped organize the Cuba side of Nyad’s multiple attempts. “I always thought she could do it given her internal energy, her mental and physical strength, her will of iron,” said Diaz Escrich, whom Nyad has called a longtime friend. President Barack Obama was among a flurry of public officials and celebrities who tweeted congratulations. The president’s tweet read: “Never give up on your dreams.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Police investigating the death of a 1-year-old boy shot in the head in his stroller said Monday they believe his father was the target. Authorities have some leads in the killing of Antiq Hennis on a Brooklyn street on Sunday night and believe his death may be gang-related, police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. Antiq’s father, Anthony Hennis, has a criminal record and wasn’t cooperating with police in their investigation, said Kelly, who didn’t elaborate. Hennis, 21, had just gone to pick up Antiq at the home of the baby’s mother, Cherise Miller, and take him to visit Hennis’ grandmother, police said. Hennis put the boy in the stroller and was pushing him across a street in the Brownsville neighborhood when shots rang out, police said. Hennis’ grandmother, Lenore Steele, said she heard shots before Hennis ran up to her. “And he fell on the ground and said, ‘Grandma, my baby got shot! My baby got shot, Grandma!’” said Steele, flanked by community group leaders and mayoral candidate Bill Thompson. “He was such a beautiful little baby, smiling and talking to everybody.” Grief and outrage over Antiq’s shooting loomed over the annual West Indian Day Parade about

a mile and a half away, where Mayor Michael Bloomberg called the killing “a tragedy for his family, for this community, for the entire city” and political candidates talked about gun violence. Four shots were fired, and one hit Antiq in the left side of his head; he was declared dead on arrival at a hospital. Hennis and Miller couldn’t immediately be reached for comment Monday. Possible phone numbers for their homes were disconnected or rang unanswered, the offices of attorneys who may have represented Hennis were closed and activists who spoke at a news conference said Miller wouldn’t be making a statement Monday. Bishop Willie Billips, who drove the parents to the hospital to identify the body of their only child, said, “The family is suffering right now.” “To have to take a young couple to identify their baby’s body is horrible,” said Billips, of the Church of Faith, Hope and Charity. While killings hit a record low in the city last year and are on track to drop further this year, Bloomberg said, “that is cold comfort to any grieving parent or friends.” As of Aug. 25, killings and shootings were down about 26 percent compared to the same time last year, the mayor’s office said.

Strength to make a change Woman makes big decision after 20 years BY ELAINE CARTWRIGHT

“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.” — Pamela Vaull Starr It was mid-April and cooler than normal for Florida, which meant the AC unit wasn’t running. That left the apartment very quiet that night. I was awakened by a noise coming from the living room at 2:30 in the morning. I looked next to me to find an empty spot where my husband should be and found the cat sleeping on his pillow. I slid out of bed to check and make sure that what I’d heard was him and not something else. As I opened the bedroom door and headed down the hallway to the living room, I could sense something wasn’t right. The closer I got to the living room, the more an overwhelming feeling of dread came over me. When I looked into the living room, a rush of

emotion hit all at once. Disbelief at first, followed by disgust with a side of betrayal topped off with a big scoop of heartache. There in our living room I found my husband naked, on all fours, searching for his crack rock. It was happening all over again. I stood there watching him as he searched in the carpet and under the couch cushions for his precious drug. I stood there thinking: “What have I done? Why is this happening? Why did I put myself back in this situation?” I didn’t say a word; I just slowly and quietly backed away from the living room and went back to bed. I realized that this was never going to end; he wasn’t going to change, so I had to. A few days later, I left my husband for the last time; I packed what I could and left 20 years of my life behind. It wasn’t easy to do. I had to move back in with my mother, with no money, no job and no car. I had nothing except some clothes and a few personal items to my name. After living in Mississippi for almost a year, unable to find work and with my unemployment

running out, my future looked pretty bleak. I was becoming more depressed every day, second-guessing my decision of leaving my husband. I started to think, or “convince” myself, that maybe my old life wasn’t so bad. I had my own home and a job. Now I lived with my mother in a rural area with no public transportation and no jobs. I went to the job center, as I had so many times since I arrived, and I learned I could receive help to go back to school. I had heard my sister-in-law’s lawyer tell her if she went to school and obtained her degree as a paralegal, he would hire her to work at his firm. She was in the middle of a real estate dispute. I had helped her do much of the research to save her some money, and her attorney said we did a good job. She wasn’t interested in his offer, but it made me think that I could do this. I had always been interested in law. I felt that I was too old to go to law school and become a lawyer, but I could certainly work for one. That’s what I did, with a little research and help from the job center. I filled out a federal aid grant applica-

advance, which includes a Longaberger gift and 15 bingo games. Tickets will cost $30 at the door, if still available. Participants should bring their own bingo pieces, or they will be available for sale. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

QUINTET: Best car’s owner is museum chairman FROM PAGE A1

alongside a Best of Show award he won in 2002 for a Duesenberg. Collecting cars runs in Parfet’s blood. His grandfather founded the Gilmore Museum in Hickory Corners, Mich., near Kalamazoo.

Today, Parfet serves as the museum’s chairman of the board. It displays 350 vehicles, tracing the history of vehicular transportation in the United States, he said. Parfet said the Gilmore Museum works closely with the Auburn Cord Duesen-

berg Automobile Museum, where he received his Best of Show trophy Sunday at the ACD Club’s annual awards luncheon. “The best thing of all about Auburn,� he said, “is the history and the people and the museum.�

RANDINELLI: Loved being ‘professional volunteer’ FROM PAGE A1

“I’m in great company, including my friend, Jack,� Pietracatella said later about his distinction as a man of the year. “Everything I needed, he helped me with. He was a helper,� Pietracatella said. Pietracatella was among many regular visitors to the popular Martha’s Popcorn stand in downtown Auburn, operated by Randinelli, his wife, Ruth, and their daughters and other family members. Randinelli purchased the popcorn stand as a hobby, keeping alive a decadeslong Auburn tradition. Shortly after moving to Auburn in the early 1960s, Randinelli became

a volunteer for the city’s classic car event in 1964 — even before the festival gained its name and became formally organized. “The festival has been in my heart for 50 years now,� Randinelli said Thursday in accepting an award to him and his wife for their volunteer service. “I met beautiful people and made beautiful friends.� George O. Witwer of Kendallville called Randinelli “a wonderful team member� on the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival board of directors. Both were charter members. The festival was created to support the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, and Randinelli also served on

the museum’s board of directors from 1981-83. “I loved to work with him on projects because of his enthusiasm and his sense of dedication,â€? Witwer said. “He will be a terrible loss to the greater Auburn community.â€? Randinelli retired at an early age from his career in banking. As a result, Yoder said, “He had the opportunity to do what he loved most, which was to be a professional volunteer. The benefits of those works are the festival and the museum. ‌ His legacies will live on for a long time.â€? THIS STORY was posted on at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

reunion in Auburn. Barbara Pietracatella previously won the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Woman of the Year award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an exclusive club,â&#x20AC;? Vincent Pietracatella said about the men who wear the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blue blazers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody in this club who has worked really hard has won this award.â&#x20AC;? News of Randinelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

death added to an already bittersweet mood at the luncheon. The event included a tribute to the late Paul Bryant, a club mainstay who had died since the last club reunion a year ago. Bryant rescued the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coppertone Cordâ&#x20AC;? and a massive experimental Cord, both now on display in the museum.

Stutzman not sold on involvement in Syria HOWE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., issued a statement Saturday night in response to President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for congressional authorization of using military force in Syria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am deeply skeptical of American military involvement in Syria,â&#x20AC;? Stutzman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After ignoring his own â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;red lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in recent days, President Obama again outlined no clear strategy or objective today should we take military action.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The American people deserve to have their voices heard regarding whether the United States takes military action in this volatile region, and I look forward to hearing the thoughts of Hoosiers as Stutzman well as the analysis of our intelligence community, and the strategy of this administration in the coming days.â&#x20AC;?

ASSAD: Russia brushes aside evidence of chemical atrocities FROM PAGE A1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;massive use of chemical agents.â&#x20AC;? The report also said that Assad government could carry out similar strikes in the future. The U.S. said it has proof that the Assad regime is behind attacks that Washington claims killed at least 1,429 people, including more than 400 children. Russia, which along with Iran has been a staunch supporter of Assad through the conflict, brushed aside Western evidence of an alleged Syrian regime role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What our American, British and French partners showed us in the past and have showed just

recently is absolutely unconvincing,â&#x20AC;? Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday at the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top diplomatic school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when you ask for more detailed proof they say all of this is classified so we cannot show this to you.â&#x20AC;? Lavrov said â&#x20AC;&#x153;there was nothing specific there, no geographic coordinates, no names, no proof that the tests were carried out by the professionals.â&#x20AC;? He did not describe the tests further. Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed Monday to send a delegation of Russian lawmakers to the U.S. to discuss the situation in Syria.

Bucs regain NL Central lead Pittsburgh defeats Brewers MILWAUKEE (AP) — Charlie Morton is doing his part to ensure that the Pittsburgh Pirates end their 20-year playoff drought. Morton won his fourth consecutive decision, a career best, pitching seven strong innings to help the Pirates retake the NL Central lead with a 5-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. “I was executing pitches and going out and trying to attack guys,” Morton said. “I was able to throw different pitches in the zone.” Morton (7-3) gave up seven hits and one earned run. He walked two and struck out six while winning his fourth straight decision. He added a base hit, his first two sacrifice bunts of the season and scored a run for good measure. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Morton turned in a “blue-collar effort” for his club, which improved to 23 games over .500 and is now just one win away

Cardinals fall in Cincinnati CINCINNATI (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Votto homered as Cincinnati roughed up Adam Wainwright for the second start in a row Monday, leading Mat Latos and the Reds to a 7-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in the opener of a four-game series between the NL Central rivals. Latos (14-5) gave up four hits, including a pair of singles and a sacrifice fly by Matt Holliday, in his first complete game of the season and the fourth of his career. The third-place Reds are trying to break the Cardinals’ seasonlong dominance. St. Louis has won the last seven series between the teams. The Cardinals are 10-6 against Cincinnati this year.

Points champions decided at AMS BY JAMES FISHER

FREMONT — Mike Kugler fell a bit short of his third championship in the super late model class at Angola Motorsport Speedway. But he made up for it by winning his first points championship in the late model sportsman class at the speedway. And he did it in style. The Stroh race driver capped the points season on Saturday by winning the feature event for the late model sportsman. Three other drivers also wrapped up points titles in their classes by winning feature events on Saturday. “It’s a way to end the season on a high note, and four of five of us did that,” Kugler said. Jack Landis won the super late model feature

Robredo ousts Federer from U.S. Open NEW YORK (AP) — Right from the start, Roger Federer looked very little like, well, Roger Federer. In the opening game of his fourth-round match at the U.S. Open, the owner of 17 Grand Slam titles got passed at the net twice, sailed a backhand long, then missed two forehands to get broken. In the second game, the man who has spent more weeks ranked No. 1 than anyone else dumped a backhand into the net, then shanked two other backhands several feet wide. No longer the dominant presence he once was, Federer lost in the round of 16 at Flushing Meadows for the first time in a decade, surprisingly beaten 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-4 by 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo of Spain on Monday night. “I kind of self-destructed, which is very disappointing,” said Federer, who made 43 unforced errors and managed to convert only 2 of 16 break points. “It was a frustrating performance.” Only the latest in a series. This caps a poor-by-his-standards Grand Slam season for Federer, whose record Grand Slam trophy collection includes five at the U.S. Open. He exited in the semifinals at

the Australian Open in January, the quarterfinals at the French Open in early June, and the second round of Wimbledon — against a player ranked 116th, to boot — in late June. That ended Federer’s record run of reaching at least the quarterfinals at 36 consecutive

Grand Slam tournaments. Now, thanks to Robredo, Federer has a new, unwanted streak: Two consecutive losses before the quarterfinals at majors. This is the first season since 2002 that Federer did not reach at least one final at any of the four

Grand Slam tournaments. That year also marked the last time Federer was ranked lower than he is now at No. 7. “The story of my life: When I lose, people are shell-shocked to see me play this way,” Federer said. At age 32, Federer has struggled with a bad back and experimented with a larger racket head, and all along, he’s had far more trouble winning matches than he usually does — particularly against the sort of players he barely broke a sweat against at his peak. That this defeat came against Robredo made it all the more stunning. Not that Robredo is a slouch. He’s been ranked as high as No. 5, albeit back in 2006, and this is his seventh trip to the quarterfinals at a major. He made it that far at this year’s French Open by doing something no man had done since 1927, winning three matches in a row after dropping the first two sets of each. But consider these other facts about Robredo and this matchup: Not only was he 0-10 against Federer until Monday, he’d managed to win only three of the 27 previous sets they’d played. And before Monday, Robredo’s record in the fourth round of the U.S. Open was 0-7.

Sox lost for just the second time in nine games. Fister (12-7) held Boston to four hits, struck out four and walked four. He gave up 13 hits and seven runs in a loss to Oakland in his previous start on Wednesday. John Lackey (8-12) was the tough-luck loser, giving up three runs on seven hits over 7 1-3 innings.

front of the sportsman feature early and held off a strong challenge by Ronnie Maynard Jr. for the win. The rest of the top five were Cassten Everidge, Kale Asztalos and Rick Everidge. Young Kendallville ace Brandon Barcus finished sixth in the feature and second in the final sportsman standings. Craig Everage led early in the 40-lap super late model feature, with Kugler quickly moving into second from a starting spot outside the second row. Landis ducked under Kugler on the third circuit and a lap later also went under Everage for the lead. He made it look easy from there. Kugler was third at the finish, trailing only Landis and Justin Claucherty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were trying to give Landis everything we could in the supers,â&#x20AC;? Kugler said. Landis took the title in his racer sponsored by Bailey Trucking, Natural Oil & Gas and Sherman Enterprises.

Henderson took Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feature win over Erik Schaeffer, Scott Moyer, Darwin Wolfe and Jacob Mann. In Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modified feature, Timmerman won over Mann, Brad Springer, Schaeffer and Henderson. The closest points race was in the street stocks, where Kendallvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cam Schoeck entered the event with just a 26-point lead over Tanner Tallarico and Chad Minnix. Schoeck left nothing to decide, as he ruled Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feature in the class. Tallarico held second throughout much of the race, but fell to third at

the finish. Minnix took fifth. Mark Mason took an emotional win in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s street stock feature, which was a tribute to Jeff Shelmadine and Blaine Miller. Both died from injuries sustained in an accident in Fort Wayne on Interstate 69 in July. Mason drove the same car to the win that Shelmadine campaigned prior to his death. Second-generation driver Kyle Moonen of Angola earned his first track title in the mini-stocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a little kid, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out here watching my dad (John Moonen).

SPORTS BRIEFS • Marlins top Cubs, 4-3 CHICAGO (AP) — Travis Wood knows all about pitchers who can swing the bat. After all, the left-hander is batting a respectable .246 with three homers this year for the Chicago Cubs. He just plain made a mistake against Henderson Alvarez on Monday, and his fellow pitcher made him pay for it. Alvarez hit a three-run homer on Wood’s first pitch to him in the second inning, leading the Miami Marlins to a 4-3 victory. The right-hander went 2 for 2, raising his average to .368 (7 for 19) on the season. “I saw his average coming up and I knew he was going to be swinging and I just missed with the pitch,” Wood said. “He did what he needed to do with it.” Wood (8-11) left a fastball over the middle of the plate and Alvarez drove it over the wall in left for his first career home run. Wood also yielded Christian Yelich’s third homer in the first. “It was kind of a funny outing,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “He couldn’t get the left-handed hitter in their lineup out and couldn’t get the pitcher out. Other than that, he dominated the rest of the lineup.” Wood allowed nine hits in seven innings while falling to 1-3 with a 9.00 ERA in four career starts against the Marlins. “It’s early in the ballgame, there’s a lot of game left so I just tried to go out there every inning and keep it right there, keep it close and give us a chance,” Wood said. “Unfortunately we weren’t able to pull it out.”

Colts hang on to WR Rogers INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts are giving Da’Rick Rogers one more chance to make it in the NFL. Hours after the team announced it signed the talented but troubled rookie receiver to the practice squad, Rogers insisted he’s a changed person. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound receiver was considered a prized recruit coming out of high school when he verbally committed to Georgia, but he wound up signing with Tennessee. Before even playing in a college game, he was allegedly involved in a bar brawl. After his sophomore season with the Volunteers, Rogers was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules and, after transferring to Tennessee Tech, acknowledged he had failed multiple drug tests while he was in Knoxville. He promised it won’t happen again. “The drugs have been over, that was the last strike on that,” he told reporters after Monday’s practice. But the ramifications have continued. Rogers was bypassed in April’s draft, opting to sign instead with Buffalo as an undrafted free agent. But on a team looking for playmakers, Rogers did not make much of an impression in training camp or the preseason and was cut by the Bills on Aug. 26. Less than a week after what he thought would be his last shot to make the NFL, the Colts are giving Rogers another chance. The signing of Rogers highlighted a busy day for the Colts off the field. Indy acquired 6-foot-3, 268-pound linebacker Cam Johnson in a trade with San Francisco for a conditional draft pick. Johnson is expected to play outside linebacker and could give the Colts another pass rusher. To make room for Johnson, the Colts waived tight end Justice Cunningham, the last pick in April’s draft. Indy also signed running back Kerwynn Williams to the practice squad, one day after it had waived the seventh-round draft pick. And rookie safety John Boyett, Indy’s sixth-round pick, was arrested early Monday on charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement. According to a police report, Boyett ran away when police tried to arrest him and after he was caught, Boyett allegedly began shouting repeatedly that officers could not arrest him because he was “a Colts player.”

Stenson wins Deutsche Bank NORTON, Mass. (AP) — The final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship had something for everyone on Labor Day — mostly a trophy, finally, for Henrik Stenson. He was runner-up to Phil Mickelson at a major and Tiger Woods at a World Golf Championship, and he tied for third at the PGA Championship to keep climbing in the world rankings. Stenson was doing just about everything right this summer except winning, usually because someone simply played better. Not this time.

Former boxer Morrison dies Tommy Morrison’s career reached its pinnacle on a hot June night in Las Vegas, when he stepped into the ring and beat George Foreman to become heavyweight champion. It reached its nadir when he tested positive for HIV three years later. The last 20 years of the brash boxer’s life would be defined by extensive legal troubles, erratic behavior and mounting health problems. Morrison would later claim that he never tested positive for the virus that causes AIDs, even as he was hospitalized during the last days of his life. Morrison died Sunday night at a Nebraska hospital. He was 44. His longtime promoter and close friend, Tony Holden, confirmed that “the Duke” had died, but his family would not disclose the cause of death. Morrison and his wife, Trisha, continued to deny that the former champion ever had HIV during the final years of his life.

As we draw nearer to 2014 when many provisions of the Affordable Care Act are implemented, the members of the public are being inundated with information about how it will impact them. It should come as no surprise, then, that the public’s awareness of such things as the new insurance marketplaces is growing. However, Social media ranked a poll by Kaiser lowest ... with only 3 the Family percent of respondents Foundation trusting this source of released Wednesday indicates information. people are skeptical Kaiser Foundation poll about the sources of on Affordable Health information Care Act they are receiving. Starting Oct. 1, people lacking insurance can begin enrolling in plans through online marketplaces, also called exchanges, which will be run by the federal government, 16 states and the District of Columbia. Indiana is not one of the states running an exchange. About 7 million people next year will get coverage under these policies, which take effect Jan. 1, according to the Congressional Budget Office. By 2017 that number is expected to grow to 24 million people. Supporters of the law and insurance companies have begun mobilizing to educate people about new insurance offerings, information from Kaiser Health News service said. With newspapers, magazines and broadcast media outlets being crowded with many varying opinions about the law, particularly from partisan lawmakers, it comes as no surprise that trust is lacking. The new poll from the Kaiser Foundation found that 33 percent of the public reported hearing “a lot” or “some” information about the exchanges, up from 22 percent in June. Most of the public, 81 percent, said they heard “something” about the law from the media. “But only 8 percent of respondents said they have ‘a lot’ of trust in the news media,” Kaiser reported. This, perhaps, is because the media parrots much information from lawmakers and other elected officials who have strong, partisan feelings about the Affordable Care Act that may or may not be accurate. Social media ranked lowest in the poll with only 3 percent of respondents trusting this source of information. “The most commonly cited source of accurate information about the law are doctors and nurses, with 44 percent of the public citing them as trustworthy resources,” Kaiser reported. However, only 22 percent of people said this was their source of information on the health law. The public remains split on the health care law, with 42 percent opposing and 37 percent supporting. It is interesting to note, in the Kaiser poll 57 percent oppose cutting off funding, which has been a big push of Republican members of Congress. Only 36 percent favor defunding the law. “The most popular reason for opposing defunding is a procedural one: That if lawmakers want to get rid of the law, they should repeal it, not undermine it by cutting off funds,” Kaiser reported. The poll was conducted Aug. 13-19 among 1,503 adults and has a margin of error is 3 percentage points. This poll shows people need to try to seek out as much accurate information as possible. And the media, as the greatest provider of information on the Affordable Care Act, should try less coverage of the partisan bickering in Washington and seek to provide more detailed information about the mechanics of the law, from which everyone could benefit

U.S. involvement in Syria could put Americans in the Middle East at risk BY GRACE HOUSHOLDER

The U.S. is weighing military action against Syria’s government because evidence suggests Syria’s government used banned chemical weapons to kill more than 1,000 of Syria’s people. “If America interferes in Syria, it will be very bad for us in Egypt,” Sahar Luke, a native of Alexandria, Egypt, told me last week. “Egyptians are very upset with the American government for supporting the Muslim Brotherhood,” she explained. “The Syrian government is fighting the Muslim Brotherhood and many other terrorist Islamic groups.” Therefore, by taking military action against Syria’s brutal government, the U.S. could be aiding groups in Syria, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, that support terror, Sahar said. I met Sahar, her husband, John, and their children, Sarah-Luna, 16, and Alexander Omar, 14, on Aug. 20, the day we began an eight-day stay in Austria. The Lukes are all U.S. citizens. Sarah-Luna and Alexander Omar were born American and received dual Egyptian citizenship several years later. Sahar became an American citizen in June 2001. The Lukes are friends of my nephew, Robert Stolz, and his bride, Faiza Sadek. Robert, who has written columns for this newspaper, is resident director of the Arabic Overseas Flagship Program run by American Councils for International Education. Robert lived and worked in Egypt until evacuating from Alexandria to Meknes, Morocco, in July following the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi by Egypt’s military. Robert and Faiza met in the spring of 2008 when Faiza was working on an anthropology degree at The American University in Cairo. More recently, she worked in a language school in Alexandria and started a nutrition program for students. Friends and relatives from four continents attended their wedding festivities, which lasted several days. John Luke, who hails from Boston, went to Egypt 19 years ago with Booz Allen Hamilton, a provider of management and technology consulting services to the U.S. government. He met Sahar, a banker, on his first day in Alexandria. John is retired, but he remains involved with local philanthropy and education. Earlier this year John, who is president of the Cosmopolitan Rotary Club in Alexandria, proposed Robert for Rotary membership. On Aug. 22, while many guests were at the wedding rehearsal, I spoke with the Luke

family about recent events in Egypt. Sahar said prior to Morsi’s ouster “we thought we might have to move to the States … Now we are on the right track but it will take time to achieve more stability.” Educated in a Catholic school in Alexandria, Sahar said, “We are a Muslim family, but we are moderate Muslims.” Sahar said the next step for Egypt is restoration of the constitution written in 1971. “Morsi changed it to a religious constitution and gave himself all power,” she explained. “When we left Egypt (Aug. 16) it was a time of great turmoil,” John said. “There were demonstrations … and we had a lot of concerns,” especially about driving from Alexandria to the airport at Cairo. But it went well and they flew out of Egypt without any problems. The Muslim Brotherhood has many Egyptians living in terror. “The Muslim Brotherhood was not allowing people to leave their houses in an area called Rabia,” Sahar said. “And if people left their homes, they would break into the apartment and take everything.” Sahar said the Muslim Brotherhood has tortured and/ or killed reporters. “They are using weapons, burning cars, killing their own people,” she said. “Christian churches have been burned — over 40 churches all over Egypt were burned in one week. They are killing Christians in upper Egypt … There should be rights for others — not just for the Muslim Brotherhood.” Sarah-Luna called Morsi’s election “extremely questionable.” “One of my hobbies is studying what is happening in Egypt right now,” she said. “A year ago Morsi was elected. The U.S. said Morsi was democrat-

ically elected. But many Christian villages were blocked so that they could not access the voting booths… Many uneducated people were paid to vote for Morsi. They wanted money to feed their family. Egypt has a huge amount of poverty… Others who were uneducated and religious did not know the brotherhood does not represent Islam but something else. Others were forced — completely forced — to vote for Morsi.” Alexander Omar told about how the Muslim Brotherhood beheaded a Christian taxi driver on Aug. 15 in Alexandria. Also (on Aug. 21) “the Muslim Brotherhood went into a mosque with machine guns and started shooting people who were praying. They are hurting Christians and Muslims,” he said. Sahar emphasized, “What happened in Egypt was not a coup d’etat as everybody thinks.” She said demonstrators in the streets were “begging the army for many days to come to our rescue.” “The police, the army and the people are really one hand and this is something really important that the world should know,” she said. The family did not wish to discuss their own safety, but John, who has been board president of the Schutz American School of Alexandria for nine of the past 15 years, expressed concern about the safety of the school’s staff. The school, founded nearly 100 years ago for children of Presbyterian missionaries, is run by a Mormon, Nathan Walker, from Utah. Over half of the 300 students are Egyptians. “We have a lot of concern for our American and Canadian staff,” John said. “We do a lot to keep them safe; we house them on our campus. Two and

Arab uprisings to be discussed Sept. 9 FORT WAYNE — “Uprisings in the Arab World: A Tour of the Neighborhood” will be presented by Andrew Spath at First Presbyterian Church, Monday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m. The talk will highlight key issues such as: Was that a coup in Egypt or revolutionary populism? Will Tunisia follow suit? How was July more violent in Iraq than in Syria? How are Jordan and Lebanon coping with refugees? Why are people in the streets in Morocco? Spath is a PhD candidate in political science at Rutgers University specializing in the Middle East. As a Fulbright and Boren Scholar, he spent the last year in Jordan conducting research on leadership change and political activism and interviewing government officials, NGO leaders, and Iraqi and Syrian refugees. The talk is sponsored by the Indiana Center for Middle East Peace in Fort Wayne. For more information call 456-8920 or email

a half years ago we evacuated with this staff. After one week they all came back. This tells you how much they care about the school.” Writing from Alexandria, John told me Saturday, “The Schutz American School opened on time … The school had an excellent first week.” But Sahar is unclear about the school’s future. “Bombing an Islamic country by Americans will drive the crowds back in the streets,” Sahar said. “Hatred toward American citizens could grow to the extent that all the American teachers decide to leave. That will force us to leave also.”




Take time to be kind DEAR ABBY: Congratulations to “Trying to Be Nice” (June 6) for her random acts of kindness. The world needs more of it. Let me point out, however, that being nice isn’t just about doing specific charitable tasks. It is something that applies every moment of every day, and as the axiom says, “Charity begins at home.” It can mean paying a compliment to a family member or friend, refraining from a hurtful comment at work or in school, smiling to a stranger on the street, willingly doing a chore at home (even if it’s “not my job”), or something as simple as cleaning up one’s own mess after lunch. To quote another axiom: Little things mean a lot. — RHEAL IN CANADA DEAR RHEAL: I agree. Sometimes they can be the simplest things, opportunities we take for granted that are right in front of us. I was touched by the responses I received from readers suggesting other acts of kindness: DEAR ABBY: Animal shelters often need volunteers to walk dogs. Rescue organi-




zations could use foster families for pets, or even pet food donations or supplies. Veterans organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project welcome volunteers to help with events, or mentor or assist vets in writing a resume. If you sign up with Volunteers of America, they can match you with organizations that suit your skills — reading to elderly DEAR the in nursing ABBY homes, etc. Youth shelters can Jeanne Phillips sometimes use volunteers to help teens learn basic life skills such as balancing a checkbook, smart grocery shopping or meal planning. Around the holidays, my husband and I visit the cemetery and clean/maintain headstones that look neglected, especially those of veterans. —

LYNN IN BOTHELL, WASH. DEAR ABBY: As an avid teenage volunteer, I have some suggestions! Donating your hair to Locks of Love is one of my favorite acts of kindness. Your hair will help make wigs for women with cancer. Donating blood is another great way to help strangers. If you prefer to give your time instead, nursing homes are always looking for people to play bingo with patients. Shelters for women and children need volunteers to come and play with the children, so the moms have time to talk with counselors. — SARA IN SUGAR LAND DEAR ABBY: “Trying” could join a neighborhood watch or help with Meals on Wheels, take the newspaper to an elderly person’s front porch, or start a recycling program in her neighborhood. — LUCY IN ST. LOUIS DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, aka Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Tips for reducing the risk of stroke the daily activities of living. What happens in a stroke? The blood supply to a part of the brain suddenly is lost. Unless that blood supply is restored, a part of the brain dies. Without a regular supply of oxygen- and nutrient-rich ASK blood, brain DOCTOR K. cells cannot remain alive. The most Dr. Anthony common cause of a is Komaroff stroke a sudden blockage in an artery. It’s called an ischemic (iss-KEE-mic) stroke. A buildup of fat in the wall of a brain artery (a plaque of atherosclerosis) can cause a

blockage. A clot traveling through blood can get wedged in the artery. Less often, a stroke occurs when an artery in the brain bursts, causing a hemorrhage. This, too, severely damages a part of the brain. There are many things people can — and should — do to reduce their stroke risk: • Lower blood pressure. Maintain a blood pressure of less than 120/80 mm Hg. Reduce salt in your diet and eat more fruits and vegetables. Those dietary changes will help lower blood pressure. If needed, take blood pressure medicines. • Lose weight. If you’re overweight, losing as little as 10 pounds can have a real impact on your stroke risk. • Exercise more. Exercise at a moderate intensity for at least 30 minutes, five days a

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m a woman in my 60s. A good friend recently had a serious stroke. Is there anything she could have done to prevent it? DEAR READER: Some strokes come out of the blue; they can’t be predicted or prevented. Perhaps your friend suffered from such a stroke. However, most strokes occur in people who have “risk factors” for stroke, such as an unhealthy lifestyle or a medical condition that is not being adequately treated. Most strokes happen in people who could have done more to protect themselves against one, but didn’t. To me, that’s hard to understand. A stroke can be devastating. It can take away your ability to move, talk and understand the world around you. It can leave you utterly dependent on other people to help you with all


week. This will reduce your risk of getting a stroke (and many other illnesses), even if you don’t lose weight from regular exercise. • Drink in moderation. Moderate alcohol intake lowers the risk of stroke. Women can have one drink per day; men can have up to two. • Take medicines your doctor has recommended for heart and blood vessel conditions. For example, a daily baby aspirin or a blood thinner for atrial fibrillation, or sugar-lowering medicines if you have diabetes. • Quit smoking. Smoking accelerates clot formation. Use aids such as nicotine pills or patches, counseling or medicine to help you kick the habit. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is:
