GOOD MORNING Campground battery leaves woman critical PIERCETON — A 24-year-old woman from Columbia City was taken to a hospital in Fort Wayne in critical condition after she was battered at a Pierceton campground over the weekend, news reports said. The Post and Mail reports the woman got in a dispute with Patrick Zimny, 54, of Glenwood, Ill., about use of a clothes dryer unit at Jellystone Campground.

Panel supports Syria strike 10-7 vote in Senate backs Obama WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s request for speedy congressional backing of a military strike in Syria advanced Wednesday toward a showdown Senate vote, while the commander in chief left open the possibility he would order retaliation for a deadly chemical weapons attack even if Congress withheld its approval. Legislation backing the use of force against President Bashar Assad’s government cleared the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on a 10-7 vote after it was stiffened at the last minute to include a pledge of support for “decisive changes to the present military balance of power” in

Syria’s civil war. It also would rule out U.S. combat operations on the ground. The measure is expected to reach the Senate floor next week, although the timing for a vote is uncertain. Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky conservative with strong tea party ties, has threatened a filibuster. The House also is reviewing Obama’s request, but its timetable is even less certain and the measure could face a rockier time there. The administration blames Assad for a chemical weapons attack that took place on Aug. 21 and says more than 1,400 civilians

Stutzman wary of strike BY MATT GETTS

U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Howe, has a pair of distinct questions he needs answered before he even thinks about voting in favor of military action against Syria. Saturday, President Barack Obama announced that he would be seeking congressional approval before launching any kind of military strike in retaliation for what he said was the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

EVANSVILLE (AP) — The Indiana attorney general’s office and several industry groups are launching a statewide campaign to raise public awareness of criminals who purchase cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine to sell to methamphetamine cooks. The practice is called “smurfing.” The Indiana Pharmacists Alliance, the Indiana Retailers Council, the Consumer Healthcare Products Association and other groups announced the anti-smurfing campaign Tuesday in Evansville.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Cleveland man serving a life sentence for holding three women captive in his home for a decade hanged himself in his prison cell with a bedsheet, officials said Wednesday in another shocking twist in the case that transfixed and appalled the city. Ariel Castro, 53, was found hanging Tuesday night at the state prison in Orient, said JoEllen Smith, a spokeswoman for the corrections system. Prison medical staff performed CPR before Castro was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. “He took the coward’s way out,” said Elsie Cintron, a neighbor who lived up the street from the former school bus driver. “We’re sad to hear that he’s dead, but at the same time, we’re happy he’s gone, and now we know he can’t ask for an appeal or try for one if he’s acting like he’s crazy.” Through a spokeswoman, his three victims declined to comment. Castro was sentenced Aug. 1 to life in prison plus 1,000 years after pleading guilty to 937 counts, including kidnapping and rape, in a deal to avoid the death penalty. At his sentencing, he told the judge: “I’m not a monster. I’m sick.” SEE CAPTOR, PAGE A8

Aging water main to be replaced BY JEFF JONES

BUTLER — Next year, Butler’s downtown water mains will receive much-needed replacement. Tuesday, the Butler City Council adopted an ordinance to raise water rates by 27 percent and authorized city attorney Gerald McNerney to prepare a bond ordinance. The average household water bill will increase by about $7 per month, city officials said. The rate increase won’t take effect until the ordinance is adopted on its third reading. Council members approved the first reading at Tuesday’s meeting. The increase was recommended in an August rate survey by consultant Crowe Horwath. The bond ordinance could be

in the $1 million to $1.4 million range, McNerney said. “The water line on South Broadway is in desperate need of repair,” Mayor Ron Walter said. “In the 200 block, there are many places where it’s been repaired on the east side of the street. With the state indicating they are going to pave S.R. 1 sometime in the summer of 2015, if we’re going to do this, we need to do this in 2014.” The existing South Broadway water mains are believed to be at least 100 years old. Another component of the project will replace a leaky water main along U.S. 6 to businesses east of the Norfolk Southern tracks. “It’s something that’s been talked about for a few years,” Walter said of the project. “Those

things don’t fix themselves, and yet it’s easy to ignore, because you don’t see them. The time for ignoring this water line has run its course, and it’s time to deal with it.” A rate increase would have been necessary even without the water main project, Walter said. That’s because Butler’s water utility lost just over $81,000 in 2012. State law prohibits utilities from operating in the red. That shortfall is partly the result of rising chemical costs, replacing a water pit in front of Eastside Junior-Senior High School and several smaller projects. “So many other communities are dealing with the same issue,” Walter said. “We’re actually in a good position that we don’t need to have an increase in our sewer rate, which is a much bigger part of the consumer’s bill.” City officials originally hoped to be able to reduce the wastewater

• rate to offset the water rate increase. That won’t be possible, Walter said, because Butler plans to extend its force main from the steel complex to the wastewater treatment plant, also before S.R. 1 is paved. Wessler Engineering Inc. of Fort Wayne was retained for $44,000 to do the engineering work for the water main replacement.

Garrett council passes new firearms ordinance BY SUE CARPENTER

GARRETT — The Garrett Common Council by a 4-1 vote Tuesday adopted an ordinance prohibiting the discharge of firearms inside the city limits. The ordinance defines a firearm as a weapon capable of firing a projectile and using an explosive charge or compressed gas/air as a propellant. Councilwoman Brenda Wigginton casting the dissenting vote, deeming the ordinance too restrictive because it bans BB guns, air guns and spray guns. Exceptions under the ordinance include police officers, members of the Armed Forces or National Guard engaged in performance of their duties, persons exercising their right of self-defense, defense of others or defense of property; and activities at an indoor/outdoor shooting range approved the the City

of Garrett, provided those activities are conducted in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws. The ordinance includes a $100 fine for any violation. A second ordinance regulating hours and days when consumer fireworks may be used within the city limits was tabled until the Sept. 17 meeting to amend some hours specified and delete some restrictions that fall under the definition of commercial fireworks. Under the current ordinance, consumer fireworks are allowed July 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7 from 5-11 p.m., July 4 from 10 a.m. to midnight; Dec. 31 from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Jan. 1; and Jan. 1 from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. The measure defines a consumer firework as a small firework designed to produce visible or audible effects by combustion, along with chemical composition

and labeling regulations. The term includes aerial devices not limited to sky rockets, missile-type rockets, helicopter or aerial spinners, roman candles, mines and shells; and ground devices including firecrackers, salutes and chasers. A third ordinance to regulate the installation of water wells within the city was introduced and passed on first reading. The measure prohibits drilling new, privately owned wells or reopening privately-owned wells that previously had been capped or closed within the city limits. The ordinance says such wells cause a loss of revenue to the city’s public water utility and that the city’s water supply could become contaminated due to improper cross-connections. The measure includes a $500 fine for each violation.

Offender on path to recovery BY KATHRYN BASSETT

AUBURN — Spending 14 1/2 months in the Serenity House alcohol and drug abuse residential recovery home changed the life of a Waterloo man, a DeKalb County court heard Wednesday. Jeffrey Frigo, 41, of the 300 block of South Washington Street, Waterloo, appeared in DeKalb Superior Court II to be sentenced for possession of methamphetamine, a Class D felony, and possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school, a Class C felony. He pleaded guilty to the crimes at a hearing May 9, 2012. Since that time, Frigo has completed an extended stay at the Serenity House

south of Auburn. Sentencing was continued with the understanding that his successful completion of the program would have some influence on the sentence he would receive. Wednesday, Judge Monte Brown sentenced Frigo to a total of 72 months of incarceration, with 29 months served and 43 months suspended. With credit for 100 days already spent in jail while the case was pending and 335 days spent in Serenity House, the sentence already has been served. Frigo also received two years of probation and must attended at least two Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous meetings each week. In a pre-sentence report prepared by the DeKalb County Probation Depart-

ment, Frigo said he had used alcohol or drugs every day of his life from age 14 until Feb. 2, 2012. Frigo described an unstable childhood that involved living in 35 different states by the time he was age 10. Frigo said he has at least 14 other brothers and sisters, but he knows the names of only three. In the report, Frigo said his last arrest likely saved his life and provided him with the road to sobriety and recovery. DeKalb County chief deputy prosecutor Donald P. Shively said Frigo appears to have succeeded in the Serenity House program. “That surprises me,” Shively said. “I think this guy probably will succeed, honestly, and I don’t say that very often.”

Suspect arrested in church GARRETT — A Garrett man was arrested Sunday morning during a break-in at a church, according to Garrett Police reports. Nicholas G. Wilson, 24, of the 100 block of East Quincy Street, Garrett, was arrested Sunday at 5:49 a.m. on a charge of burglary, a Class B felony and transported to the DeKalb County Jail. Police reportedly found Wilson hiding in the worship area of the Garrett Presbyterian Church after responding to a call that a suspicious person was seen near the building at 3 a.m. Wilson later allegedly admitted to entering

numerous vehicles in Garrett as well as burglarizing Auburn Alliance Church in Auburn. Garrett Police executed a search warrant on Wilson’s residence, where many stolen items were found, including items taken in the Auburn burglary, according to the report. The Garrett Police Department is also investigating several other suspects involved in a recent rash of vehicle thefts. Officers reportedly recovered more than 75 stolen items from these thefts at Wilson’s home. Police Chief Keith Hefner is asking residents

The South Bend Tribune reports South Bend schools have had a contract with The Crossing for the past two school years, but when the district’s contract expired in July, a request to consider renewing it for another year wasn’t brought before the school board for approval. The private, faith-based alternative school, which has locations in Butler and Ligonier, contracts with more than 30 school corporations to serve some of the state’s most at-risk students.

Hefner also reminded residents to secure their vehicles and property. “There were largely crimes of opportunity, and very few of the vehicles were actually broken into,” Hefner said. “Most were simply unlocked vehicles that were opened and ransacked.”

Cooperation is theme of Water Week The U.N. General Assembly declared 2013 the International Year of Water Cooperation. And the theme of this year’s World Water Week, Sept. 1-7, is Water Cooperation: Building Partnerships. This week, scientists, nonprofit organizations, and policymakers all over the world are convening at the Stockholm International Water Institute in Sweden to discuss new research and developments in water conservation — and most importantly, what needs to be done to ensure the protection of one of Earth’s most valuable resources for future generations. According to the most recent estimates by the World Health Organization and the U.N. Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation, 768 million people do not have access to clean water, and 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation facilities. Contaminated water plays a “... 768 million people significant role in do not have access to malnutrition clean water and 2.5 — vomiting and diarrhea billion people do not caused by water-borne have adequate sanitation diseases prevent the facilities.” absorption of key nutrients in food, and are responsible for the deaths of approximately 1.3 million children every year. Meanwhile, crops that are nourished with contaminated water can carry dangerous pollutants, such as mercury and arsenic, which can inhibit crop growth and potentially sicken people who consume the crops. Unfortunately, agriculture is not only a primary contributor to global water use — approximately 70 percent of the world’s water use is concentrated in farming — but also to water contamination. U.N. Water estimates that the food sector contributes 40 percent of organic water pollutants in industrialized countries, and 54 percent in developing countries. And the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition reports that if everyone in the world had the same consumption habits as North Americans and Europeans, a 75 percent increase in water resources would be necessary to sustain them. Research institutions, private businesses, governments, and the donor community can all work together to research simple innovations for providing clean water to households, build infrastructure for communities and mainstream organic agriculture. Chemical fertilizers, pesticides and antibiotics in animal waste all contribute to water pollution, causing health problems for eaters and damaging the environment. Water runoff from land treated with chemicals can contaminate water supplies. By implementing organic fertilizers, agro-ecological pest-management methods, and raising livestock holistically and without antibiotics, farmers can prevent contamination of already scarce water supplies. As population demands on agriculture increase, global agricultural water consumption is expected to increase by 19 percent by 2050, indicating a need to expand on water-conserving farming methods. What are the solutions that you would recommend? Which organizations have you seen successfully put them into practice? Please let me know at Danielle@foodtank. org!

Kendallville’s downtown showing signs of revitalization progress emember the effort three years ago to plan for the revitalization of Kendallville’s downtown business district? Kendallville joined the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns Indiana Downtown technical assistance program. The Redevelopment Commission, with the help of an IACT grant of $20,250, hired HyettPalma, an Alexandria, Va.-based, nationally recognized specialist in downtown revitalization, for $40,500 to help a process committee of local business owners and professionals create an action plan. Residents were surveyed by telephone, and community meetings were held to gather public input about the downtown’s future. In June 2011 HyettPalma and IACT’s Indiana Downtown released a 97-page “Kendallville Downtown Action Agenda.” According to the report, by the year 2016 downtown Kendallville will be well on its way to having this image: • “A busy, bustling and memorable downtown that is friendly and homey and filled with interesting shops and great restaurants making it a wonderful place for all ages to browse, walk, shop, eat out and see friends and neighbors.” • “A downtown that’s retained its quaint, historic ambiance yet has become the go-to place for a fun, one-of-a-kind experience.” • “A bright, positive, sparkly place that makes you want to hang out on a regular basis and then return again and again.” This would be different from previous revitalization efforts. This report boasted


an “action plan” that prioritized revitalization projects and suggested funding sources. The process committee split into smaller committees assigned to parts of the action plan. That was over two years INSIDE ago. COMMENT Among its recommendations, the Dennis Nartker HyettPalma Indiana Downtown report in 2011 called for the following course of action within the next five years: • Retain the Strand Theater as a downtown entertainment anchor. • Locate a downtown venue for Gaslight Playhouse Theater. • Create a new green space on Main Street. • Encourage downtown business owners to create quality loft apartments. • Assist the Wreck Teen Center with a skateboard park on the site. What has happened since? The RDC, the Economic Improvement District and the Main Street Business Association continue efforts at making the downtown aesthetically pleasing and

attractive to visitors and new businesses with flower planters and flower baskets, trees, banners, flags, WiFi and a new public address system. The RDC facade grant program has proven to be one of the most successful mechanisms for upgrading downtown buildings. Ray Scott, president of the RDC and a member of the original process committee, said there has been some progress on the report’s “Course of Action” items. He indicated: • A “Save the Strand” committee has been working to find a way to help the owner pay for the needed changeover to digital equipment. • A downtown park proposed in the vacant S&S property at the corner of Main and Rush streets was stymied when the owner sold the land to investors who plan a convenience store on the site. • The Design Arm Committee has been working on a preliminary streetscape with new sidewalks, streetlights, signage — but this has not been packaged yet for discussion. In April, the committee completed a detailed report on downtown building usage. • The city hired a code enforcement officer. • The RDC incorporated the roofing and building envelope elements in its facade grant program. “Progress is being made. Funding will always be a challenge,” said Scott. DENNIS NARTKER is a reporter at The News Sun. He can be reached by email at dnartker@

Funds short for vets’ caregivers Illegal lawyer fights for license

WASHINGTON (AP) — John Thomas Doody was in a coma and on a ventilator, but his mom refused to follow a doctor’s advice and put the Iraq war veteran in a nursing home. Chris Ott quit her job, moved the family to Tampa, Fla., so her son, known as J.T., could be near the Veterans Affairs hospital. She spends most of her waking hours trying to meet his many needs. He was shot while serving with the Marines in Fallujah and suffered an infection and series of strokes during his recovery. She says he’s paralyzed and nearly blind but has made dramatic improvement over the years. To ease the financial burden, Ott relies on a relatively new federal program that pays her a stipend of about $2,000 per month, trains her on how to care for J.T. and provides at least 30 days of respite care each year. Once every three months, a VA inspector comes by her house to check on her and J.T. “Now, I can still love him and hug him and kiss him and talk to him and laugh with him. Oh yeah, I still have my son,” she said. The extra help has eased one family’s financial hardship. Yet there’s a question of fairness. For every family receiving the caregiver benefit, many more make do without. For example, Pauline

King of Anna, Ill., is not eligible for the stipend even though her husband, Jerry, a Vietnam veteran, needs help with bathing, dressing and going to the bathroom as a result of multiple sclerosis. When lawmakers created the program in 2010, it limited participation to veterans who had served since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. King said the move to exclude Vietnam veterans shows “they’re still not paying attention” in Congress. Ordered by Congress to study the feasibility of expanding the program, the Department of Veterans Affairs expressed reservations in a report Wednesday, projecting the cost at between $1.8 billion and $3.8 billion in the first year alone. The VA estimated that an additional 2,000 full-time workers would need to be in place to handle the workload of an expanded program. “VA believes the expansion of benefits to caregivers of eligible veterans of all eras would make the program more equitable,” the agency said in a statement. “Unfortunately, core health care services to veterans would be negatively impacted without the additional resources necessary to fund the expansion.” Given tight budget times, with most federal agencies already forced to make cuts and furlough workers, the

Briefs • Minneapolis mayor seeks tourist dollars from gay couples CHICAGO (AP) — With all of Illinois’ financial woes, residents have grown accustomed to politicians from other states trying to raid its companies, jobs and best workers. Now one of them is making a similar pitch to the state’s gay couples: Come north to get married, and spend lots of money. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, who recently married 46 same-sex couples following his state’s passage of a law legalizing gay weddings, will appear in a predominantly gay Chicago neighborhood Thursday to launch a campaign called “Marry Me in Minneapolis.” He plans to follow with campaigns in Colorado and Wisconsin, two other states that haven’t approved same-sex marriage. Rybak is trying to

convince Chicagoans that rather than take a long — and expensive — plane trip to one of the coasts, just drive six hours to his city. Recently, many gay couples in the Midwest have said their vows in Iowa — the only state directly bordering Illinois that allows same-sex weddings. He’s trying to capitalize on disappointment among Illinois gay couples that the state, dominated by Democrats, still hasn’t approved a marriage law and likely won’t anytime soon with lawmakers on recess. “I love Chicago and love to come spend money there, but if people there don’t get the rights they deserve I am more than happy to have them come and spend their money in Minneapolis,” he said in a telephone interview. Rybak figures the campaign, if successful, could be extremely lucrative for Minneapolis, profiting on everything from hotel rooms to flowers to caterers.

People • Harper selected as contestant for ‘Dancing With Stars’ NEW YORK (AP) — Busy cancer patient Valerie Harper leads a class of 12 amateur hoofers in the upcoming 17th season of “Dancing With the Stars.” The cast was Harper revealed Wednesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” For a show that has reached an increasingly older audience, ABC added an injection of youth with reality stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of “Jersey Shore” and Ozzy’s kid Jack Osbourne. Harper has defied odds with her survival since being diagnosed earlier this year with brain cancer. She recently filmed a movie role and joined a Nick at Nite reunion of “The Mary Tyler Moore” cast. A brain scan last month showed improvement for the 74-year-old former sitcom star, whose doctors say her cancer is getting close to remission. She will have her

next scan in October. In an interview with The Associated Press, Harper said that so far, she’s not taking any precautions when she’s rehearsing. “He (pro partner Tristan MacManus) says, ‘Do you want to get water?’ Which is great because I don’t drink enough water but (that’s) not to do with the cancer … (it’s) not an impediment to dancing and I just try to stay healthy and continue to lose weight so I look halfway decent in the costumes,” she said with a laugh. Harper said of her decision to join the show: “There’s a (Lee Ann Womack) country song (with the lyrics) ‘when you get the choice you sit it out or dance/ I hope you dance.’” Other contestants on the new season of “Dancing,” which premieres Sept. 16, are Bill Nye, the “Science Guy”; “Pretty Little Liars” actor Brant Daugherty; former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson; singer-actress Christina Milian; actress Elizabeth Berkley; “High School Musical” actor Corbin Bleu; “Glee” actress Amber Riley; country comic Bill Engvall; and “King of Queens” actress Leah Remini.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Sergio Garcia’s request that the state Supreme Court grant him a law license was met with resistance and skepticism Wednesday by several justices because he is living in the United States illegally. A federal law passed by Congress in 1996 bars immigrants in the country illegally from receiving “professional licenses” from government agencies or with the use of public funds. The case is pitting the Obama administration against California Attorney General Kamala Harris and state bar officials, who insist an applicant’s citizenship status has nothing to


do with whether someone like Garcia who graduated from law school, passed the state’s bar examination and has a clean criminal record, can obtain a license. The Obama administration argues otherwise and is opposed to Garcia receiving his law license. The state Supreme Court is in charge of licensing lawyers in California and the arguments boiled down to whether public money would be used in its licensing of Garcia. Lawyers for Garcia and the California State bar also argued that Congress meant to exempt attorney licenses from the law because they are issued by courts and not agencies.


Pauline King, 59, hugs her husband Jerry, 63, at their home in Anna, Ill. Jerry is a Vietnam Veteran who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1978. The disease, which results in the loss of muscle control and balance, was determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs to be service-connected.

prospects of adding billions of dollars to the VA budget seems unlikely. The VA thus far has been exempted from the mandatory cuts, known as sequestration. Still, in July, the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee passed a bill that would expand the program to veterans from all eras. The bill also increased the types of injuries and

illnesses that would qualify a veteran’s caregiver for extra assistance. Any veteran with a “serious-service connected disability” who needed help with basic activities of daily living would qualify. But concerns about cost will be difficult to overcome. Currently, about 11,000 caregivers are enrolled in the program.

The Bonds shall be in fully registered form; denomination $5,000 and integral multiples thereof; originally dated the date of delivery of the Bonds; bearing interest at a rate or rates to be determined by bidding, and payable on January 15 and July 15 of each year beginning not earlier than July 15, 2014; interest shall be calculated on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360) day year comprised of twelve (12) thirty (30) day months; interest payable by check mailed one (1) business day prior to the interest payment date or by wire transfer to depositories on the interest payment date to the person or depository in whose name each bond is registered with the Registrar as of the first day of the month of each interest payment date; maturing or subject to mandatory redemption on January 15 and July 15 beginning on July 15, 2014, through and including January 15, 2026, on the dates and amounts as provided by the Library prior to the sale. A bid may designate that a given maturity or maturities of the Bonds shall constitute a term bond, and the semi annual amounts set forth in the schedules provided for the Bonds shall constitute the mandatory sink-

ing fund redemption requirements for such term bond or bonds. For purposes of computing net interest cost, the mandatory redemption amounts shall be treated as maturing on the dates set forth in the schedules provided for the Bonds. The Bonds maturing on July 15, 2022, and thereafter, are subject to optional redemption on January 15, 2022, or any date thereafter, on thirty (30) days' notice, in whole or in part, in such order of maturity as the Library shall direct and by lot within a maturity, at face value, plus accrued interest to the date fixed for redemption.

Bids shall set out the total amount of interest payable over the term of the Bonds and the net interest cost on the Bonds covered by the bid. No bid for less than 99.0% of the face value of the Bonds will be considered. The Bonds will be awarded to the highest qualified bidder who has submitted a bid in accordance herewith. The highest bidder will be the one who offers the lowest net interest cost to the Library, to be determined by computing the total interest on all of the Bonds to their maturities based upon the schedules provided by the Library prior to the sale and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any, and adding thereto the discount bid, if any. No conditional bids will be considered. The right is reserved to reject any and all bids. If an acceptable bid is not received for the Bonds on the date of sale hereinbefore fixed, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter, during which time no bids for less than the highest bid received at the time of the advertised sale will be considered. Each bid must be submitted on a customary bid form, addressed to the Library, and marked "Bid for Garrett Public Library General Obligation Bonds of 2013". The successful bidder (the "Purchaser") will be notified and instructed to submit a good faith deposit ("Deposit") in the form of cash, certified or cashier's check or wire transfer in the amount of one

If a check is submitted, it shall be drawn on a bank or trust company which is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and shall be submitted to the Library (or wire transfer such amount as instructed by the Library) by the Purchaser not later than 3:30 p.m. (EDT) on the next business day following the award. If such Deposit is not received by that time, the Library may reject the bid. No interest on the Deposit will accrue to the Purchaser. The Deposit will be applied to the purchase price of the Bonds. In the event the Purchaser fails to honor its accepted bid, the Deposit will be retained by the Library as liquidated damages. The Purchaser shall make payment for the Bonds in Federal Reserve funds to the registrar (the "Registrar") for the Bonds and accept delivery thereof from the Registrar within five (5) days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery.

If the Library fails to have the Bonds ready for delivery prior to the close of banking hours on the forty fifth (45th) day after the date of sale, the bidder may secure the release of his bid upon request in writing, filed with the Library. The Purchaser is expected to apply to a securities depository registered with the SEC to make such Bonds depository eligible. At the time of delivery of the Bonds to the Purchaser, the Purchaser will be required to certify to the Library the initial reoffering price to the public of a substantial amount of each maturity of the Bonds.

livery of and pay for the Bonds in accordance with the terms of its bid. No CUSIP identification number shall be deemed to be a part of any Bond or a part of the contract evidenced thereby and no liability shall hereafter attach to the Library or any of its officers or agents because of or on account of such numbers. All expenses in relation to the printing of CUSIP identification numbers on the Bonds shall be paid for by the Library; provided, however, that the CUSIP Service Bureau charge for the assignment of said numbers shall be the responsibility of and shall be paid for by the Purchaser. The Purchaser will also be responsible for any other fees or expenses it incurs in connection with the resale of the Bonds. The approving opinion of Beers Mallers Backs & Salin, LLP, bond counsel of LaGrange, Indiana, together with a transcript of the proceedings relating to the issuance of the Bonds and closing papers in the usual form showing no litigation questioning the validity of the Bonds, will be furnished to the Purchaser at the expense of the Library. The Bonds are being issued under the provisions of I.C. §36 12-3-9. The Bonds are being issued for the purpose of procuring funds to be used to finance the acquisition, construction, extension, alteration, improvement, remodeling, and equipping of an addition to and renovation of the Library and the related incidental expenses to be incurred in connection therewith and on account of the issuance of the Bonds. The Bonds will be direct obligations of the Library payable out of ad valorem taxes to be collected on the taxable property within the district of the Library; however, the Library's collection of the levy may be limited by operation of I.C. §6-1.1-20.6, which provides taxpayers with tax credits for


property taxes attributable to different classes of property in an amount that exceeds certain percentages of gross assessed value of that property. The Library is required by law to fully fund the payment of debt service on the Bonds in an amount sufficient to pay the debt service, regardless of any reduction in property tax collections due to the application of such tax credits. The Library may not be able to levy or collect additional property taxes to make up this short fall. In the opinion of bond counsel, under the federal statutes, decisions, regulations and rulings existing on this date, the interest on the Bonds is excludable from gross income for purposes of federal income taxation. The Bonds constitute an indebtedness only of the Library. The Bonds are subject to the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 as in effect on the date of their issuance (“Code”) which imposes limitations on the issuance of obligations like the Bonds under federal tax law. The Library has covenanted to comply with those limitations to the extent required to preserve the exclusion of interest on the Bonds from gross income for federal income tax purposes, The Library has designated the Bonds for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Code to qualify for the $10,000,000 annual exception from 100% disallowance, in the case of banks and other financial institutions, of the deduction for interest expense allocable to tax-exempt obligations. The Library has prepared an Official Statement relating to the Bonds which it has deemed to be a nearly final official statement. A copy of the Official Statement may be obtained from Cate Birdseye, Director at Garrett Public Library, 107 W. Hudson St., Garrett, IN 46738, (260) 357-5445 or in limited quantities prior

to submission of a bid by request from the Library's financial advisor. Within seven (7) business days of the sale, the Library will provide the Purchaser with up to fifteen (15) copies of the final Official Statement at the Library's expense. Additional copies, at the Purchaser's expense, must be requested within five (5) business days of the sale. Inquiries concerning matters contained in the nearly final Official Statement must be made and pricing and other information necessary to complete the final Official Statement must be submitted by the Purchaser within two (2) business days following the sale to be included in the final Official Statement. The Library has agreed to enter into a Continuing Disclosure Undertaking in order to permit the successful purchaser to comply with the SEC Rule 15(c)2 12. A description of this undertaking is set forth in the near final Official Statement and will also be set forth in the final Official Statement. The Continuing Disclosure Undertaking will be executed and delivered by the Library at the closing of the issuance of the Bonds. Further information relative to said issue and a copy of the nearly final Official Statement may be obtained upon application to H.J.

Today’s drawing by:

conference Obama said, “I always preserve the right and responsibility to act on behalf of America’s national security.� In a challenge to lawmakers back home, he said Congress’ credibility was on the line, not his own, despite saying a year ago that the use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line.� Secretary of State John Kerry said he believes Obama will address the nation on Syria in the next few days. Obama’s request also received its first hearing in the House during the day, and Kerry responded heatedly when Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., said that the secretary of state, Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden all had advocated for caution in past conflicts. “Is the power of the executive branch so intoxicating that you have abandoned past caution in favor of pulling the trigger on a military response so quickly?�

died, including at least 400 children. Other casualty estimates are lower, and the Syrian government denies responsibility, contending rebels fighting to topple the government were to blame. The Senate panel’s vote marked the first formal response in Congress, four days after Obama unexpectedly put off an anticipated cruise missile strike against Syria last weekend and instead asked lawmakers to unite first behind such a plan. In Stockholm, Sweden, where Obama was traveling on Wednesday, the White House praised the vote, and said it would continue to seek support for “a military response that is narrowly tailored to enforce the prohibition on the use of chemical weapons, and sufficient to protect the national security interests of the United States of America.� Earlier, at a news

Duncan asked. Kerry, who fought in Vietnam in the 1960s and voted to authorize the war against Iraq a decade ago, shot back angrily: “I volunteered to fight for my country, and that wasn’t a cautious thing to do when I did it.� When Duncan interrupted, the secretary of state said,� I’m going to finish, congressman,� and cited his support as senator for past U.S. military action in Panama and elsewhere. The Senate committee’s vote capped a hectic few days in which lawmakers first narrowed the scope of Obama’s request — limiting it to 90 days and banning combat operations on the ground — and then widened it. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., joined forces with Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware to add a provision calling for “decisive changes to the present military balance of power on the ground.�

CAPTOR: Cell reportedly checked every 30 minutes FROM PAGE A1

A scornful Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said: “This man couldn’t take, for even a month, a small portion of what he had dished out for more than a decade.� Castro had been in a cell by himself in protective custody because of his notoriety, meaning he was checked every 30 minutes, but was not on a suicide watch, which entails constant supervision, Smith said. She said Castro used a bedsheet. An autopsy showed the death was suicide

by hanging, said Dr. Jan Gorniak, Franklin County coroner. The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio asked the prison system to conduct a full investigation. Castro’s captives — Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight — disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. They were rescued from Castro’s run-down house in a tough Cleveland neighborhood on May 6 when Berry broke out a screen door and yelled to neighbors.

Elation over the women’s rescue turned to shock as details emerged about their captivity. Castro fathered a child with Berry while she was being held. The girl was 6 when she was freed. Investigators also disclosed that the women were bound with chains, repeatedly raped and deprived of food and bathroom facilities. Knight told authorities that Castro impregnated her repeatedly and made her miscarry by starving her and punching her in the belly. Berry was forced to give birth in a plastic kiddie pool.

received assurances from Obama that putting U.S. combat troops on the ground was not an option. Despite Boehner’s announcement, Stutzman remained doubtful he would support military action. He was heading into a briefing scheduled in Washington D.C. today with members of the intelligence community on the issues involved. “I’ve very skeptical of it,� Stutzman said. First and foremost, Stutzman said, he needs proof that Syria is an imminent danger to the United States. “We have not been attacked by Syria,� Stutzman said. “They are not a threat to us. We are not in a defensive position. I don’t see them as a threat to us based on what I’ve seen the last year and a half.�

in a civil war that began more than two years ago. A United Nations inspection team is awaiting lab results on tissue and soil samples it collected while in the country before completing a closely watched report. Stutzman’s hesitance does not translate into acceptance of the use of chemical weapons, he said Tuesday. “Our hearts go out to all these people who are in the middle of this,� Stutzman said. “It’s unfortunate. It’s sad it’s happening. We’re not going to change every part of the world. We can’t run in and be the policeman of the world. We need to be very cautious about moving forward.� Tuesday, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner endorsed some sort of military action when he

Stutzman said he also wants to know what the new Syrian government would look like should the Assad regime be toppled. “Who are we helping?� Stutzman asked. “How do you know there’s not a setup here?� The gas attack may have been work of terrorist groups such as al-Qaida or Hezbollah, with one of the groups either vying for power in the country or trying to goad the U.S. into an action that will raise the ire of more in the Muslim community, Stutzman said. Stutzman said it would take credible evidence for him to change his opinion regarding military intervention, but he is keeping an open mind. THIS STORY was posted on at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Cubs hit four homers in win CHICAGO (AP) — Donnie Murphy has thrived in late-game situations over the last month. Murphy capped a four-run seventh inning with a two-run homer as the Chicago Cubs rallied for a 9-7 victory over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Since joining the Cubs in early August, Murphy is hitting nearly .400 from the seventh inning on and Wednesday’s home run was his sixth in the seventh inning or later. “I’ve come through in those situations before and for some reason I’m comfortable in ‘em,” he said. “I just like the situation. I like the game on the line. It’s not pressure on me. Someone else has to throw the pitch over the plate. It’s pressure on them sometimes and I just like the situation.” Murphy has been one of the few bright spots for the Cubs in an otherwise dismal second half. Since being called up from the minors in early August, he’s been one of the team’s best hitters and certainly the best clutch hitter. Not bad for a guy who essentially was on baseball’s scrapheap this season

after bouncing around for much of his career since making his major league debut in 2004. “Throughout the rest of his major league career, he’s been hurt and on the (disabled list) and never really got a chance,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said of Murphy. “He’s obviously getting a chance here and is making the most of it.” The Cubs certainly made the most of some shaky pitching by the Marlins. Rookie left-hander Brian Flynn lasted just four-plus inning in his debut, giving up three runs on six hits. The bullpen was worse and couldn’t protect 6-3 and 7-4 leads. “They’ve been pretty consistent for us all year, but today wasn’t one of our better days,” Marlins manager Mike Redmond said of his bullpen. The Cubs pounded out four home runs, with Sterlin Castro, Dioner Navarro and Ryan Sweeney adding solo blasts. The Marlins went deep twice. Adeiny Hechavarria homered and the team got a two-run shot by Logan Morrison.

Red Sox score 20-4 romp over Tigers


KENDALLVILLE — Right from the start, East Noble made it clear what was in store. “We came out and had a solo block right away,” explained East Noble volleyball coach Nicki Ramey. “The first set we set the tone.” The result was a 25-13, 25-12, 25-22 volleyball victory over Prairie Heights on Wednesday. “Minus the third set, I thought we were firing on all cylinders — everything connected,” Ramey said. The Knights simply ruled Game 1. Two late kills by Kourtney Edwards took the margin to 23-13, with a Panther kill then sailing out of bounds. Regan Wilson followed with a kill for the game point in a 25-13 win. The Knights jumped out 7-1 in Game 2. Sydney Rodenbeck had an ace early on and Edwards had two big plays at the net that resulted in points.

BOSTON (AP) — David Ortiz hit two of Boston’s eight homers and also doubled for his 2,000th career hit on Wednesday night to lead the Red Sox to a 20-4 romp over the Detroit Tigers. Will Middlebrooks hit a grand slam, Ortiz had an RBI double to reach the milestone and Daniel Nava added a two-run homer when Boston pulled away with an eight-run sixth inning. Ortiz homered again in the five-run seventh — the 427th of his career to move past Billy Williams and into 47th on baseball’s all-time home run list. AL East-leading Boston has won nine of 11, taking two out of three from the Central-leading Tigers to hold onto the best record in the league. The Red Sox burst out with a franchise record-tying eight homers and a season-high 20 runs.

Defense to drive Thunder in 2013 BY KEN FILLMORE

ANGOLA — A defense that returns nine starters will be big in Trine University’s football team trying to get over championship hump this season. The Thunder are among the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s upper tier after a second straight 7-3 campaign in 2012 (5-1 in the MIAA) and will feature preseason NCAA Division III All-Americans from various publications in all three phases: offense, defense and special teams. The defense will set the tone, said eighth-year Trine coach Matt Land. “Our team will be led by our defense. We have more experience coming back on defense,” Land said. “They’re a year older and a year stronger. “We can say we have newer guys, not inexperienced. We have a lot guys back who got a lot of downs and are known quantities. We know what these kids can do.” Land has compiled a 53-22 record in his first seven seasons and passed Dale Carlson last year to become the Thunder’s winningest football coach. Carlson collected 47 victories as the school’s first coach from 1995-2002 when it was called Tri-State University. Ten of Trine’s top 12 tacklers are back. The starters lost to graduation are cornerback Myron Puryear and linebacker Ben Mohr.

The heart of the defense is at linebacker with seniors Caleb Nitz (6-0, 183 pounds), Tony Miranda (5-foot-11, 207) and Derek Posey (6-1, 224). Nitz was honorably mentioned on defense to the USA College Football, Inc., preseason All-American teams. He made 72 tackles in nine games last year, including 37 solos and 9.5 for loss. Miranda made 49 tackles while Posey made 31 tackles seeing a lot of action in a reserve role. Disruptive senior Louis Danesi (6-0, 240) leads Trine on the defensive line. He had 68 tackles last season, which was third on the team. That included 35 assists and team-leading totals of 15.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks. Senior Jim West (6-2, 272) and juniors Ryan Hogan (6-2, 238) and Aaron Wolf (6-1, 237) also make up the quartet of starters who return. Senior Blaek Combs and junior Tyler Guzy are back as the starting safeties. Junior Christian Chase and sophomore Travis Smith are the new starting cornerbacks. Guzy led the Thunder in tackles last year with 74, including 44 solos. He also recovered two fumbles. Combs led Trine in 2012 in passes defended with eight and in interceptions with five. Former East Noble Knight Michael Spears filled in at midseason last year and made an impact. The sophomore will see time at linebacker and in the secondary after making 48 tackles in eight games in 2012. SEE TRINE, PAGE B2


Running back Austin J. Shoemaker will give Trine University some experience in the skilled positions this fall in his junior season.




TRINE: Thunder set to open season with contest against Manchester The kicking specialists on special teams are back for their third seasons as starters in senior placekicker Tyler Keck and senior punter Nick Muir. Keck was named a D-3 second team All-American by the Beyond Sports Network. He made 33-of-34 extra point kicks and 9-of-10 field-goal attempts. Muir averaged 37.1 yards per punt with a long of 81 yards. Eight of his 41 punts were inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. There will be new playmakers to replace the likes of two-year starting quarterback Ryan Hargraves and receiver/returner JaVontae Hence. Land did not want to reveal them until they hit the field tonight in North Manchester. Returning skilled guys include juniors Austin J. Shoemaker and Jared Barton, senior fullback Jeff Harbrecht, junior tight end Zach Hess


and sophomore receiver Gage Corner. Shoemaker is the leading rusher returning after collecting 326 yards and four touchdowns last year and rushing for 4.9 yards per carry. Barton ran for 214 yards at 3.5 yards per carry, but is now a receiver. Trine will have a solid offensive line to support its run-oriented scheme implemented by second-year assistant coach Eric Ravellette. That line returns three starters: senior left tackle Taylor Sprague (6-7, 321), senior left guard Andrew Webster (6-3, 264) and senior center David Louis (6-2, 253). The new starters on the right side are sophomore Dalton Raper (6-4, 290) and junior Jacob Turner (6-2, 259). Sprague and Webster were All-MIAA First Team selections last year. Louis rose up from being Trine’s third string center midway through 2012. He

stepped in to help a team hit hard by injuries. “They have a chance to be a good offensive line,” Land said. “Coach Ravellette’s system is in place, and that gives us continuity.” Land will once again feature many running backs, which will help the team and help the well-being of those ball carriers. A lot of concern has risen over player safety in football recently. Land’s use of running backs in the physically demanding game helps alleviate those concerns. “If you want to do this (punching fist to hand), you can’t do this with one guy. Eventually the wheels are going to fall off,” Land said. “One guy can come into a season 5-11 and end it 5-8 and slower by bashing them. We need to have fresh legs late in games and constantly be rotating.” A fair, yet challenging

non-conference schedule awaits the Thunder, starting with the Spartans. Trine has won six straight over Manchester, but some of those have wins have not been easy. The Spartans finished last season with six straight wins for coach Shannon Griffith, who played football with his good friend Land at Northrop High and at Ball State. Trine opens at home at Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium Sept. 14 against a D-3 playoff team from last year in Elmhurst (Ill.). The Blue Jays are formidable after winning a playoff game and having their best season ever at 10-2. But they are in transition with new coach Joe Adam and only nine starters returning. Adam replaces former Western Michigan standout quarterback Tim Lester, who is now the quarterbacks coach at Syracuse. The Thunder will try to avenge last year’s 13-10 road loss to Concordia (Wis.) in

Chase contenders: Some rise to the top, some have disappointing runs, at Atlanta Motor Speedway

As often is the case since NASCAR instituted the Chase for the Sprint Cup, when it comes to crunch time, the cream rises to the top. The finishing order of Sunday night’s AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, the next-to-last race before the start of the championship-deciding, 10-race Chase, found eight Chase contenders in the top 10. Kyle Busch, who seized the lead with a strong restart Busch celebrates his AdvoCare 500 win with with 33 laps to go, scored a burnout. his fourth win of the season, while Joey Logano continued pretty bad night.” his two-month hot streak Gordon said that Edwards caused most of Kyle Busch in Victory Lane after winning the Sprint with a runner-up run that the trouble after the first run-in between Cup AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. saw him come from behind the two of them, which he said was parbad start to win the AdvoCare 500 and both early and late in the 500tially his fault. cruise into the Chase just a year after he mile race. “[Edwards] decided that he was going to missed the cut for the championship run.

Ganassi betting on Kyle Larson’s talent over his seat time in appointing him driver of No. 42 Chevrolet in 2014

Kevin Harvick takes the checkered flag in the Nationwide Series race at AMS. A year after dominating the 2012 Nationwide Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, leading 157 of 195 laps only to lose to Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on the last lap, Kevin Harvick rolled to a relatively easy win in Saturday’s Great Clips/Grit Chips 300. Harvick dominated the last half of the race, leading 132 laps, and held off Kyle Busch in the closing laps to secure his first Nationwide victory of the season, the 40th of his career and his second at AMS. Busch was the runner-up ahead of Sam Hornish Jr., Kasey Kahne and Kyle Larson. Hornish’s finish allowed him toled Laps NUMERICALLY push his points lead from sixbytoDenny 10 Hamlinwho in the SPEAKING over second-place Austin Dillon, past 17 Sprint Cup races finished eighth at Atlanta. at Richmond International Major NASCAR

Nationwide cars he’s now driving to the more powerful Cup cars. “With my sprint car background, they’re 1,400pound cars with 900horsepower engines,” he said. “I’m used to having way too much horsepower. I think that will translate Chip Ganassi (right) announces the appointwell to the Cup cars.” ment of Kyle Larson as the new driver of Larson said that even if the No. 42 Sprint Cup Chevrolet in 2014. there are some unknowns as far as moving up to the Cup series so quickly, he wouldn’t do it any other way. “These opportunities don’t come about very often,” he said. “You never know when you have another shot like this. You have to capitalize on it and do the best you can.” Ganassi, who also fields the No. 1 Chevrolet driven by Jamie McMurray, said he believes his team can give Larson cars capable of continuing his career climb. “I think our cars have shown they can run in the top five, top 10 on a pretty regular basis this season,” he said, adding that he’s not expecting Larson to take him to Victory Lane immediately. “I think Kyle is the kind of driver, when he sees an opportunity in front of him, he takes it. If that means it’s a win — hey, great. There’s no pressure for him to win his first year out.” Patrick Smith/Getty Images for NASCAR

Sprint Cup team owner Chip Ganassi has a track record of taking chances when he hires race drivers, and that was the case again as he’s picked the relatively inexperienced Kyle Larson as the new driver of his No. 42 Chevrolet beginning next year. In choosing Larson, a 21-year-old racer who has just 24 Nationwide Series career starts and six more in the Camping World Truck Series, Ganassi is betting that the youngster’s immense talent will overcome his lack of seat time in vehicles similar to the ones he’ll drive on the Sprint Cup circuit. Larson has a win and a second-place finish in Trucks this season and six top-five finishes in the Nationwide Series, but he’s a regular winner on short-track circuits. And in teaming up with Ganassi, Larson, who has been under contract with the veteran team owner since last year, also is gambling that Ganassi, who hasn’t won a Cup race since 2010, can deliver him a car capable of continuing his upward career climb. Fellow racer Ryan Newman said that while Larson is short on NASCAR starts, his experience in sprint cars and other forms of motorsports has him prepared to take over the car now driven by Juan Pablo Montoya. “I think Kyle has definitely proven across the board he can drive absolutely anything — anywhere, anytime,” Newman said, adding that the real tests will come off the track. “I think the biggest challenge he’s going to have ahead of him is not what happens outside of this [media] room, it’s what happens inside of this room — the media part of it; the publicity part of it,” Newman said. For his part, Larson said he’s up to the challenges. He said his sprint car experience will help him transition from the

Angola on Sept. 21 in an MIAA-Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Challenge contest. Then they will play at NCAA Division II St. Joseph’s on Sept. 28. The Thunder last played the Pumas in 2001 and never lost to SJC in three meetings. “It starts with Manchester,” Land said. “In that game, we have to be efficient on offense, defense and special teams. We have to take care of the football, and we have to be assignment sound.” Trine was picked to finish in a tie for second place with Hope in the MIAA preseason coaches’ poll. Defending champion Adrian was the preseason favorite. The Bulldogs return part-time starting quarterback Aaron Tenney, a seasoned corps of running backs and eight starters on a stout defense led by preseason All-American linebacker Deontae Bridgeman.

Indians don’t chicken out, beat Orioles 6-4 CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians, boosted by a good-luck chicken and a pair of RBIs from both Yan Gomes and Ryan Raburn, beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-4 Wednesday night. Cleveland pitcher Justin Masterson carried a live chicken on to the field for batting practice. The bird, supplied by a clubhouse workers from an area farm, was a gift to reliever Cody Allen. The chicken spent most of batting practice standing with Cleveland’s pitchers in front of the warning track in center field. Allen’s teammates gave him the nickname “Chicken Al” in spring training and the chicken has been named “Cody.” The Indians moved a half-game past Baltimore in the chase for a playoff spot. Cleveland began the night 3½ games behind Tampa Bay for the second wild card. Relievers Bryan Shaw (3-3), Allen, Joe Smith and Chris Perez, who recorded his 22nd save, combined to allow one hit in 4 1-3 innings. Gomes broke a 4-all tie with an RBI single in the fifth when the Indians scored twice to go ahead for good. A wild pitch by Kevin Gausman (2-4) with the bases loaded scored the second run. Cleveland scored four times in the first, but starter Zach McAllister couldn’t hold the lead. Adam Jones hit a solo homer in the fourth. Manny Machado’s three-run homer tied it in the fifth. Raburn’s two-run double, along with RBI singles by Gomes and Mike Aviles, got the Indians off to a quick start. McAllister allowed four runs in 4 1-3 innings.

Bird Town of Indiana to be celebrated on Sept. 14 GENEVA — The Indiana Audubon Society recently designated Geneva, Ind., the first Bird Town of Indiana and will commemorate the honor at a ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 2 p.m. at the Limberlost State Historic Site Visitor Center, located 200 E. Sixth St. Bird Town of Indiana is a designation awarded by the Indiana Audubon Society to those communities in Indiana that demonstrate an active and ongoing commitment to the protection and conservation of bird populations and habitat. “The Bird Town designation is acknowledgement that the local wetland restoration efforts

have been successful in bringing many types of birds back to the Limberlost. As the birds return, they will attract those who watch birds for a hobby, helping to promote the area and bringing tourist dollars into our economy,� said Limberlost State Historic Site Manager Randy Lehman. Representatives from the Indiana Audubon Society will present Geneva town officials with two highway signs commemorating this achievement. In addition to the ceremony, a short program on wetland restoration will be given in the Limberlost Visitor Center classroom by Ken Brunswick, East Central Regional Ecologist for the Depart-

ment of Natural Resources, Division of Nature Preserves. Brunswick is the person most responsible for the creation of the 1600+ acres of Limberlost nature preserves that contributed to Geneva earning the first Bird Town designation. The city is home to the historic Limberlost Cabin, once occupied by Gene Stratton-Porter, one of Indiana’s best known authors, who wore the nickname “Birdwoman� from 1885 to 1913. A special Bird Town cake created by Geneva-based chef Cary McClure will be served along with other refreshments. For more information, please call 260.368.7428 or email

Single mom rips older workers for longevity DEAR ABBY: I am appalled at older workers who hang onto their jobs so they can live lavish lifestyles, while young workers trying to support families are left with lack of advancement or even laid off because they don’t have tenure. I am a single mom, and when my sons are out of college I plan to take a less stressful job (and thus less pay), so a younger person can have my job to support a family. I am so tired of the ME ME ME attitude of our society now. In the past, there was more of a sense of social responsibility. Now it’s every man for himself and hang everyone else! — DISGUSTED IN COLUMBUS, OHIO DEAR DISGUSTED: While your altruism is laudable, please try to be less judgmental. Many older people work longer these days not to live lavish




lifestyles, but to survive. Unless you have a crystal ball that enables you to see what seniors have in the bank, it’s presumptuous to say someone should retire. Many seniors are unprepared financially DEAR to do so no ABBY through fault of their own. And while you Jeanne Phillips may think now that you’ll take a reduction in pay when your sons are out of college, it remains to be seen if that will be feasible.

DEAR ABBY: My cousin died a short time ago at a very young age and in an unnatural and

devastating way. As soon as people outside the family started finding out, they began asking what happened. Many of these questions were posted on my relatives’ Facebook pages. Is it just me or isn’t that a very insensitive thing to do? It’s not just that they are asking questions of a grieving family who lost their son only hours before, but that they did it through Facebook. — MOURNING IN THE MIDWEST DEAR MOURNING: Please accept my sympathy for your family’s tragic loss. We live in an age in which respect for privacy has nearly disappeared, and folks routinely bare intimate and sensitive details about their lives on the Internet. Of course questions like the ones your relatives are being asked are tasteless — whether in person or via electronic media.

SEPTEMBER 5, 2013 6:00

On this date: • In 1913, fire devastated Hot Springs, Ark., destroying some 60 blocks. • In 1972, terror struck the Munich Olympics as the Palestinian group Black September attacked the Israeli Olympic delegation; 11 Israelis, five guerrillas and a police officer were killed. • In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford escaped an attempt on his life by Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, a disciple of Charles Manson, in Sacramento, Calif.


View computer at correct angle to ease strain Specifically, they looked at what happened to a person’s neck. Your neck houses the top of your spine, which is a stack of small bones called cervical vertebrae. Your neck bones and muscles prefer it when your ASK spine is DOCTOR K. straight — as when you are standing your Dr. Anthony with head erect. neck Komaroff Your muscles get strained when your neck has to bend forward and downward. This is what the research team found: When you are working with a tablet held

on the lap or placed flat on a table, your neck has to bend much more to see the tablet screen — compared with working with a desktop or notebook computer. This can cause strain and even injuries to muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and spinal discs. However, when you view a tablet that is on a table, propped at a steep angle in a tablet case, you have much less neck strain and pain. The research team didn’t study what’s best for the hands and wrists, assuming you use your tablet for tasks that need typing. However, here’s what I tell my patients if they plan to do a lot of typing: • Don’t work with the tablet in your lap. Use a table and chair. • Use a tablet case that holds the tablet at a comfortable viewing angle. • Use a keyboard, instead

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: I love my tablet computer, but my neck hurts every time I use it. Any suggestions? DEAR READER: Using a tablet computer shouldn’t be a pain in the neck, but for all too many people, it is. Why? Widely popular tablets such as the iPad, Nook, Kindle Fire, Xoom and others are so light and easy to handle that you can hold one on your lap or in your hand. That can put you in a position that’s bad for your neck, shoulders and back. But simply adjusting your viewing angle should provide relief. Dr. Jack Dennerlein and his colleagues at the Harvard School of Public Health looked into the problem. Using an infrared 3-D motion analysis system, they tracked how different tablet positions affect the body.


of the keyboard screen on the tablet: If the tablet screen is propped up at the ideal angle to see, it will be hard to type on. And there are very light wireless keyboards for tablets (that’s what I use). • Shift your hands, your weight, or even stand up when you can. • Take a break every 15 minutes. If all you want to do is read on your tablet, use a device that props it up. Or use a device that rests on the floor by your feet and holds a tablet propped up at the correct angle in front of you, like a music stand. You can just read and tap the screen to flip the page, your neck in the position it likes best. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is:
