ot so fast, Michigan seemed to say. You think you’ve got ugly uniforms? Well, check these out. Just as everyone at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing was getting used to Michigan State’s green, black and bronze Nike Pro Combat uniforms (the kids love them, everyone says, and I say, some kids love eating Play-Doh), out came the Wolverines in their surprise Adidas Legacy gear — in which they looked sort of like a rugby team from the 1970s. Luckily, the game itself honored tradition Saturday in front of 77,515 fans. It was violent, passionate and wild. And it ended in a convincing 28-14 victory for the Spartans. We’re used to emotion when these two universities get together on the football field. And now we’re starting to get used to MSU winning. And so are the Spartans. No matter what happened on that field Saturday, they never stopped looking like they expected it to end up

U.S. strike kills 9 al-Qaida militants The Associated Press

SANAA, Yemen — The United States has raised the tempo in its war against alQaida in Yemen, killing nine of the terror group’s militants in the second, highprofile airstrike in as many weeks. The dead in the late Friday night strike included the son of Anwar al-Awlaki, the prominent American-Yemeni militant killed in a Sept. 30 strike. Yemeni officials on Saturday attributed the recent U.S. successes against alQaida to better intelligence from an army of Yemeni informers and cooperation with the Saudis, Washington’s longtime Arab allies.

“Michigan State is here to stay,” MSU junior defensive end Jerel Worthy said. “We’re trying to show our dominance in this state. We tried to go out there and play our football. Coach (Mark) Dantonio has instilled in our minds that we won’t lose to Michigan.” MSU’s program is up in a big way under Dantonio, who joins Charlie Bachman (1933-37) as the only Spartans coaches to win four of their first five games against U-M. And Michigan’s program dipped severely in three seasons under Rich Rodriguez and now still has ground to make up under first-year coach Brady Hoke. The Wolverines will get better and be back, no one who pays any attention to this stuff could argue otherwise.

of chaos in Yemen to seize control of several cities and towns in a southern province. That has raised American fears they can establish a firmer foothold in the strategically located country close to the vast oil fields of the Gulf and overlooking key shipping routes. The U.S. airstrikes in Shabwa pointed to Washington’s growing use of drones to target al-Qaida militants in Yemen. The missile attacks appear to

be part of a determined effort to stamp out the threat from the group. Yemeni officials familiar with the U.S. military drive against al-Qaida in Yemen said a shift of strategy by the Americans was finally yielding results, with human assets on the ground directly providing actionable intelligence to U.S. commanders rather than relying entirely on Yemen’s security agencies the Americans had long considered inefficient or even suspected of leaking word on planned operations. They said there were as many as 3,000 informers on the U.S. payroll around the country — some without even knowing it.

Liberian opposition parties pull out A group of Liberian opposition parties said Saturday they are pulling out of a recent presidential poll and threatened to refuse the results over allegations that election officials are skewing the outcome in favor of the president. Saturday’s statement was signed by eight parties, including those of second-place challenger Winston Tubman and third-place contender Prince Johnson. The latest partial results gave President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf a narrow lead in the race. In a statement, the group claimed “massive fraud being carried out by the National Elections Commission.”

Syrian forces kill 5 people Syrian security forces trying to suppress the anti-government uprising killed five people Saturday, according the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and another opposition group, the Local Coordination Committees. The dead included one person who was attending a funeral procession for a teenager shot dead in protests a day earlier and an activist for the Observatory, who was assassinated while in hiding in a besieged eastern city of Deir el-Zour, the group said. The funeral targeted Saturday was for 14year-old Ibrahim al-Shayban, one of 11 people shot dead by Syrian troops on Friday. His funeral was held in the Damascus suburb of Midan.

2 charged with stealing bridge NEW CASTLE, Pa. — Two brothers have been charged with stealing a western Pennsylvania bridge and selling the almost 16 tons of scrap metal for more than $5,000. Police said 24-year-old Benjamin Arthur Jones and 25-year-old Alexander Williams Jones of New Castle used a blowtorch to break up the bridge in late September or early October. They face felony charges of criminal mischief, theft, receiving stolen property and conspiracy. Authorities said Alexander Jones told a recycling company employee that he had permission to carve the bridge for scrap. The recycling company called police.

Police shoot man in wheelchair PHOENIX — A man in a wheelchair has been fatally shot by Phoenix police after officers said he pointed a gun at them. Police said two veteran officers went to the main bus and light rail station in downtown Phoenix around 2:20 a.m. Saturday after someone reported gunshots. The Arizona Republic reported that witnesses told police the man assaulted a woman believed to be his girlfriend. Police said the man became belligerent as officers approached, and he pulled a handgun from the waistband of his pants. Police said both officers gave several commands for the man to drop the gun, and they fired when he raised the gun and pointed it at the officers. — From wire reports

Mitt Romney’s early success in the Republican presidential race is challenging the tea party’s clout. Will it continue to pull the GOP sharply right? Will it slowly fade? Or merge with mainstream Republican elements in a nod to pragmatism, something it’s hardly known for? On the surface, Romney’s strength seems at odds with the tea party’s fiery success in ousting Republicans seen as compromisers, and in making the House GOP caucus more ideological, even when its leaders plead for flexibility. Romney defends the government’s 2008 bank bailouts, plus the mandated health insurance he initiated as Massachusetts governor. He says he can work with “good Democrats.” Al-

Flying the flag: Tea party activists protest against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney recently in Concord, N.H. though he later changed, Romney once supported abortion rights, gun control and gay rights. These positions run counter to the beliefs and goals of many tea party activists scattered throughout the country. Yet Romney is faring better in polls, fundraising and debates than are contenders with stronger tea party creden-

tials, including Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry. Several Republican strategists, and even some tea party leaders, say they aren’t surprised or alarmed. Their overarching goal is to defeat President Barack Obama next year, they say, and if Romney is best-positioned to do

that, they’ll endure his shortcomings. “The perception that tea partyers are ideological purists is wrong,” said Sal Russo, a longtime Republican strategist in California and a leader of the Tea Party Express. “We are a broadbased movement,” he said, “and we are looking to win in 2012.” Some campaign veterans see bigger problems for Romney. Polls of Republicans show Romney holding steady at about 25%, while Bachmann, Perry and Cain take turns making surges. “That tells me that 75% of the primary voters would really rather have someone else,” said GOP lobbyist and consultant Mike McKenna. Many tea party activists have little or no loyalty to the Republican Party, and McKenna predicts big problems next year if they feel their conservative values were sacrificed for political expediency. “Romney would cause enormous numbers of tea partytype voters to simply not show on game day,” he said.

Teens sound off in digital library Project aims to expand kids’ media literacy in 21st century By Greg Toppo USA TODAY CHICAGO n the ground floor of the city’s main library, an odd experiment is taking place, one that could determine what your neighborhood library looks like in 10 years. It goes like this: Take a very large room and fill it with the latest digital media — laptop computers, music keyboards, recording equipment, video cameras and gaming consoles. Invite teenagers. Apply a little pressure, pushing them both to consume and produce media. Watch what happens. Once a storage room at the Harold Washington Library, the high-ceiling, 5,500-square-foot space, dubbed “YOUmedia — a Digital Library Space for Teens,” has become a magnet for young people citywide, so popular and influential that the library plans to replicate it citywide. The original space, sitting in the shadow of the downtown Loop, sees a steady stream of visiting librarians, educators and scholars. “When people see it, they’re completely gobsmacked,” says Mary Dempsey, library commissioner. Funded in part by the Chicagobased John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the project sprang from research on how digital media affect kids’ literacy. Simply put, it’s changing the requirements. “We are in one of these rare moments in time where what it means to be literate today, what it meant for us, is going to be different from what it means to be literate for our kids,” says DePaul University’s Nichole Pinkard, who first envisioned the space. Just as schools have always pushed teens to read critically and pick apart authors’ arguments, she says, educators must now teach kids how to consume media critically and, ideally, to produce it. “It’s really a shift from thinking of a library as a repository to a community center, a place where things actually happen,” says Taylor Bayless, 27, a librarian and one of the center’s mentors. YOUmedia owes much of its basic ideology to Mizuko Ito, a cultural anthropologist at the University of California-Irvine who in 2006 studied how teens use “new media.” After three years, her team concluded that most kids shift between three

stages of consumption and creation, informally dubbed “hanging out,” “messing around” and “geeking out.” In the first stage, teens are mostly text-messaging or instant-messaging friends and haunting sites such as Facebook — what the researchers call a “lightweight means” of maintaining friendships. “Messing around” begins when teens take an interest in media itself: composing music, editing photos or shooting video, driven more by interests than a desire to be with friends. “Geeking out” involves using new media in an “intense, autonomous and interest-driven way” that often leaves friends in the dust as teens seek out experts for help. YOUmedia is laid out to accommodate all three stages. Drew Davidson of Carnegie Mellon University notes that he and colleagues designed it with the “hanging out” space by the front door. But even kids who stay put there absorb what’s happening in the other two. “If you’re just ‘hanging out,’ your awareness of the possibilities of the things you could do

and conversation are everywhere. Poet and lead mentor Mike Hawkins says, “It’s a constructive loud.” Raymond Abercrombie, 17, stumbled upon YOUmedia two years ago while looking for “some random book” for a college-prep class. Ten minutes into his first visit, he met Hawkins, widely known as “Brother Mike” — the name comes from his days on the city’s poetry scene — who introduced him to performance poetry. Soon Abercrombie was geeking out in what he calls “the nerd space,” discussing poetry. Then he was performing his own poetry and music. He now shows up seven days a week, and you’ll find him most afternoons “either making music or discussing music.” Ito, the anthropologist, considers the project “amazing on a lot of levels.” Ito says the secret of YOUmedia’s success is that it’s based not on what adults think students should be doing, but on “what kids actually do and how they engage” with media and one another.

just gets raised,” he says. On a recent afternoon, most patrons were comfortably “hanging out.” Two girls in a beanbag chair shared a MacBook they had checked out at the front desk, tweaking their Facebook statuses; a dozen boys egged each other on as two button-mashers played the video game Infamous. Nearby, Bayless sat with a group of boys, helping them plan a taping of their weekly podcast about video games. They were somewhere on the border of stages two and three, “messing around” but approaching geek stage. One of the three was trying to get Bayless to think about how the game Bioshock owed its philosophy to the novels of Ayn Rand. Clearly geeking out. A few feet away, another boy repeatedly played a fragment of percussive digital music, shaving off microseconds as he struggled to fit it into a larger composition. One thing you quickly notice: It’s loud. Gone are the students studying quietly among the stacks. While bookshelves occupy a large central space, the sounds of music, video games

U.S. won’t keep troops in Iraq after deadline The Associated Press

BAGHDAD — The U.S. is abandoning plans to keep U.S. troops in Iraq past a year-end withdrawal deadline, The Associated Press has learned. The decision to pull out fully by January will effectively end more than eight years of U.S. involvement in the Iraq war, despite ongoing concerns about its security forces and the potential for instability. The decision ends months of hand-wringing by U.S. officials over whether to stick to

a Dec. 31 withdrawal deadline that was set in 2008 or negotiate a new security agreement to ensure that gains made and more than 4,400 American military lives lost since March 2003 do not go to waste. In recent months, Washington has been discussing with Iraqi leaders the possibility of several thousand American troops remaining to continue training Iraqi security forces. A Pentagon spokesman said Saturday that no final decision has been reached about the U.S. training relationship with the

Iraqi government. But a senior Obama administration official in Washington confirmed Saturday that all American troops will leave Iraq except for about 160 activeduty soldiers attached to the U.S. Embassy. A senior U.S. military official confirmed the departure and said the withdrawal could allow future but limited U.S. military training missions in Iraq if requested. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity. Throughout the discussions,

Iraqi leaders have adamantly refused to give U.S. troops immunity from prosecution in Iraqi courts, and the Americans have refused to stay without it. Iraq’s leadership has been split on whether it wanted American forces to stay. Some argued the further training and U.S. help was vital, particularly to protect Iraq’s airspace and gather security intelligence. But others have deeply opposed any American troop presence, including Shiite militiamen who have threatened attacks on any American forces who remain.

The militants failed to breach the gate of the base in Panjshir province’s Rakha district, though they did hit a security tower with a rocket-propelled grenade. Three of the men attacked on foot, shooting, while a fourth detonated the explosives-laden vehicle outside the gate, Jangalbagh said. The blast hit two fuel tankers which were waiting to enter the base, killing the Afghan drivers inside, he said. A NATO spokeswoman conďŹ rmed the attack but said

“There was a complex attack attempted, but it was repelled.� CAPT. EBONY CALHOUN NATO spokeswoman

there were no American deaths or injuries and no signiďŹ cant damage to facilities. “There was a complex attack attempted, but it was repelled,â€? Capt. Ebony Calhoun said. She said the guards’ wounds were not life-threatening. The base houses a provincial reconstruction team — a mix of military and international civilians who work to improve provincial governance, services and infrastructure. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. NATO downplayed the signiďŹ cance of such spectacular strikes on Saturday, presenting ďŹ gures that showed headline-grabbing assaults account for only

1 percent of attacks in Afghanistan and that militant activity is down overall. Insurgent attacks between January and September were 8 percent lower than the ďŹ rst nine months of 2010, according to ďŹ gures supplied by a senior ofďŹ cial with NATO forces who spoke anonymously because of the sensitivity of the information. But while violent attacks are down overall, assassinations have increased 60 percent for the same period with 131 people killed so far this year, according to the ofďŹ cial. And while NATO reports little change in civilian casualties over the nine-month period, ďŹ gures from the U.N. show an increase in civilian deaths. Three NATO service members were also killed Friday in separate attacks, according to statements from the military coalition, making 11 killed so far this month and at least 464 since the beginning of the year.

Tens of thousands in Bhutan celebrate the wedding of their king to commoner THIMPHU, Bhutan — Tens of thousands of Bhutanese have crammed into a stadium in the capital for a reception celebrating the wedding of their beloved king to their new queen. King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck married commoner Jetsun Pema in a Buddhist ceremony Thursday in the Himalayan kingdom. Their wedding was celebrated with a huge reception Saturday where the couple shared their ďŹ rst

public kiss. Traditional dancers performed for them. Children put on a taekwondo demonstration and the prime minister and lawmakers danced with the king on the sports ďŹ eld. The couple spent hours walking through the stands to shake hands and talk to their subjects. Then thousands of people poured KEVIN FRAYER/ASSOCIATED PRESS onto the ďŹ eld and formed concentric Bhutan’s King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema kiss circles for a traditional ďŹ nal dance. — The Associated Press

Flood barriers will determine Bangkok’s fate The Associated Press

RANGSIT, Thailand — Beside a wall of white sandbags that has become a front line in Thailand’s battle to prevent an epic season of monsoon oods from reaching Bangkok, needleďŹ sh swim through kneehigh water inside Sawat Taengon’s home. On one side, a cloudy brown river pours through a canal diverting water around the Thai capital, just to the south. On the other side, homes just like his are unscathed. Whether oodwaters breach fortiďŹ ed barriers like these this weekend will decide whether Bangkok will be swamped or spared. As of late Saturday at least, the alarmed metropolis of glass-walled condominiums and gilded Buddhist temples remained unscathed, and authorities were conďŹ dent it narrowly would escape disaster. “We just hope it doesn’t go higher,â€? said Sawat, a 38-year-old construction worker whose home had the misfortune of being inside the vast sandbag wall, which runs at least 2.5 miles along a canal in Rangsit, just north of Bangkok’s city limits. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s government said most of Bangkok, which lies about six feet (two meters) above sea level, safely sits behind an elaborate system of ood walls, canals, dikes and seven underground drainage tunnels that were completed over the last year.

Adding sandbags Government workers there were taking no chances, stacking new sandbags atop a canal-side wall about 4.5 feet high. The government said the oods, which have killed 297 people, are the worst to hit the Southeast Asian kingdom in half a century. In a radio address Saturday, Yingluck called them “the worst in Thai history.â€? Monsoon deluges that have pounded Thailand since late July have affected 8 million people and swept across two-thirds of the country, drowning agricultural land and swallowing low-lying villages along the way. More than 200 major highways and roads are impassable, and the main rail lines to the north have been shut down. Authorities said property damage and losses could reach $3 billion. Flooding in neighboring Cambodia, with less than one-quarter of Thailand’s 68 million population, has killed at least 247 people, said Keo Vy, spokesman for Cambodia’s National Committee for Disaster Management. Thailand’s lucrative tourist destinations — beaches and islands like Koh Samui, Krabi and Phuket — have not been affected, and its international airports remain open. Earlier Saturday, a 10-man team of U.S. Marines arrived on a survey mission to determine how Washington can offer help.

Huge test The latest oods are posing the biggest test those defenses have ever faced. Adisak Kantee, deputy director of Bangkok’s drainage department, reported encouraging signs Saturday. Runoff from the north had decreased slightly and high tides that could have impeded critical water ows to the Gulf of Thailand have not been severe as expected, he told The Associated Press. Water levels along the main Chao Phraya River and key canals to the north in places like Rangsit still are manageable, he said. But he said there could be trouble if any critical

Obstructionist council bloc must go OUR POINT IS... O

nly in Lansing would a nay-saying, obstructionist bloc of City Council members refuse a public hearing to a college seeking to build a new facility, add up to 2,000 students and create hundreds of construction jobs. In communities looking to a 21st Century future, plans like those offered by Davenport University are encouraged. In Lansing, a City Council riven by the regressive antics of Carol Wood, Brian Jeffries, Eric Hewitt and Derrick Quinney instinctively rejects any progressive measure. That puts Greater Lansing’s future at risk. It’s wrong. Davenport has outgrown its Kalamazoo Street campus. The school, with 800 students, wants a new building with room for some 3,000. It wanted to build at Oliver Towers apartments and an adjacent city parking lot, a $13 million investment. In return, it would swap its Kalamazoo property, valued at $2.33 million, to the city. But Davenport withdrew its offer

The failed Davenport University expansion is one more reason for Lansing voters to put new faces on their City Council on Nov. 8.

rather than suffer what it politely called the “political fray.” That “fray” is just another round of obstructionist games played by this council bloc. The school is now looking elsewhere. No one should be surprised if Davenport leaves the city, but let’s hope it will reconsider. Sadly, Lansing Community College is a player in the latest mess as well. It has interest in the same parcel, but no plan for its use. When Mayor Virg Bernero announced Davenport’s plan, LCC didn’t even have a bid. LCC made a bid of $2.52 million — to be paid in taxpayer money — the same day the council blocked Davenport’s request. And LCC’s

bid doesn’t include the cost of demolition, another taxpayer expense. In taking that deal, the city would gain on paper, but there’s no benefit to taxpayers. In addition, that bid still needs approval from LCC’s board — hardly a solid offer. Be clear, if LCC had put forth such an offer in the absence of Davenport’s plan, the same council bloc would howl that the city can’t sell prime land without commitments as to what will be built. Arguing about why there was no request for proposals must end. Davenport had a strong plan and a tight timeline. Bernero was right to rush it to council. The lasting value of 3,000 students downtown far outweighs cash from LCC now. To Wood, Quinney, Jeffries and Hewitt, this is all a game of power plays. But Lansing’s future is at stake. That’s no game. This was a wasted opportunity. In less than a month, voters can put an end to this for good. They must do so. An LSJ editorial

Michigan’s Capital City has much to be proud of My wife and I just visited Lansing as part of a two week driving vacation. As part of our trip, we stopped to visit the Michigan state Capitol and state museum. We have visited 42 state capitols and must say that Michigan’s Capitol and state museum have to be one of the best that we have ever seen. Most states have very nice capitols but most don’t have the elegance of the Michigan Capitol. Also, most states have a state museum but none have a better history of their state in such a beautiful layout as Michigan’s does. Some have no real history of their state at all. We only visited Lansing and then the northern part of Michigan and have to say that Michiganders should be very proud of their Capitol, state museum and natural beauty of northern Michigan.

Why can’t we learn to care for our crying babies? Many deaths are preventable. The deaths that bother me the most are those of babies or young children who are killed by a caregiver. There is one of those in today’s news. If we can teach young adults to drive a car, we can teach them how to manage a crying baby. Google “crying baby” for some suggestions. If you have to care for a crying baby and you can’t stand it any more, put the baby in a safe place, close the door, and call someone. Any woman who has ever had a child will help you. Maybe we could have this on billboard signs or public service announcements. I’ll vote for the politician who comes up with the solution to this. It’s really not that difficult. Pamela Nelson DeWitt

East Lansing, find a way to keep Red Cedar School There is no reason to close Red Cedar Elementary. Closing Red Cedar and rebuilding five schools doesn’t save money and will cost everyone tens of thousands of dollars. Closing Red Cedar won’t allow for adequate sites for schools for the future since it was one of the best sites for construction. Closing Red Cedar won’t spread multiculturalism around East Lansing, it will introduce a hardship to those without vehicles.

Kevin Garnett, 35, the Boston Celtics forward who has had a stellar career, was with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2004 when a teammate, Latrell Sprewell, augmented the national stock of unfortunate pronouncements. Dissatisfied with a threeyear $21 million contract extension offer, Sprewell said: “I’ve got my family to feed.” Remembering the ridicule Sprewell received, Garnett must know the players’ public relations problems as their union, with his support, tussles with team owners over, among other things, the players’ share of the National Basketball GEORGE Association’s almost WILL $4.5 billion (last season) in revenues. With 25 million Americans unemployed, underemployed or too discouraged to seek employment, why should anyone care that fewer than 450 jobs are jeopardized by a labor dispute? The jobs are those of America’s highest paid professional athletes. NBA players’ average salary is $5.1 million. The dispute, which has already caused cancellation of the preseason and the first two weeks of the regular season, at a cost of perhaps $500 million, illustrates an agreeable truth: Man is an economic animal, rationally maximizing income, except when he isn’t. Many of the players are prepared to lose substantial income by prolonging negotiations over a new collective bargaining agreement. David Stern, NBA commissioner since 1984, says 22 of 30 teams lost money last year, and their cumulative $450 million losses exceeded the profits of the other eight. The owners want players to receive much less than their current 57 percent of “basketball-related income.” The owners originally said 47 percent; the players said maybe 53 percent. A 50-50 split has been suggested, but the players say 53 is low enough. Every percentage point means $40 million spread over the rosters of 30 teams. Not much. There are other issues. Labor-management disputes test the two sides’ animal spirits and pain thresholds. The former favor the players, who have climbed to the peak of their profession’s pyramid because they are ferocious competitors. Owners, however, have higher pain thresholds because they have longer time horizons: They do not have short careers; they do have deep pockets. Sports leagues must accommodate two competing imperatives. The leagues must encourage the pursuit of excellence by each franchise. But the leagues are selling entertainment, which requires competitive balance. The NFL, which gets so much of its revenue from national television contracts, distributes this to its teams in equal portions, so a team in a small city in Wisconsin can compete with New York teams. In Major League Baseball, whose economic model of largely local revenues developed before the invention of broadcasting, huge disparities of local broadcast revenues tilt the playing field against small-market teams. These have been mitigated by revenue sharing. Basketball is booming, globally. Almost one in five players last season was not American, and when the U.S. team played China in the 2008 Olympics, 1 billion people watched. Selling 1 percent of them an item of team apparel would mean serious money for everyone to fight over, which is a great American game. What do you think?

Michigan’s manufacturers will continue to create good jobs, especially as Gov. Rick Snyder and the Legislature work to improve our state’s business climate by eliminating anti-competitive measures like the indus-

trial Personal Property Tax. Manufacturing jobs support our state’s economy by paying out relatively high wages and benefits and the significant economic multiplier benefits. Jobs in manufacturing help build Michigan communities — which is why it’s so important to protect them whenever we can. Today, Michigan manufacturers focus on winning in the global marketplace — which is why it’s important to pay attention to international trade agreements that could help or hinder Michigan business. In particular, trade with Asia is critical to Michigan’s economic future, a major reason why Gov. Snyder went to Japan, China and Korea recently. As a result, Michiganders and manufacturers need to have the Trans-Pacific Partnership on their radar. This trade agreement has been in negotiations since 2009 with eight other Asia-Pacific nations. It is one example of an international trade agreement that could have a direct impact on Michi-

gan jobs and industry. As it stands, the Trans-Pacific Partnership should help increase American manufacturing exports — which would create and support Michigan jobs. The other countries our government is negotiating with have economies largely complementary to our own, meaning this agreement should be a good one for Michigan jobs. However, Japan has expressed a recent interest in joining this free trade negotiation, despite its decades-long history of being closed to international trade competition — especially in the automotive sector. For each vehicle the U.S. exports to Japan, Japan exports 180 vehicles to the United States. American auto exports to Japan were limited to only 8,000 vehicles last year — this is simply unacceptable. Japan should not be allowed to join the current Trans-Pacific Partnership talks until it opens its markets to U.S. auto exports over the long term. A multi-year

Council action hurt city Petty politics will cost Lansing the future it deserves As a downtown business owner, homeowner and retired planning and development director for the city of Lansing. I am extremely upset with the actions of the Lansing City Council in failing to hold a public hearing on the proposal by Davenport University to exchange their current campus property for the Oliver Towers site. I can understand why Davenport officials do not want to be caught up in the petty politics of certain Lansing City Council members. I also know that the Lansing City Council’s action cost the city construction jobs, income tax revenue, the removal of a blighted Oliver Towers building and construction of a new ALAN E. $13 million campus for TUBBS Davenport University. is a retired It also ended the director of chance for the city to planning and take over the existing development for the city of Davenport campus, Lansing. which would have provided the city with desirable riverfront property to combine with the former arts center building it already owns nearby. It may also result in the loss of clients for downtown businesses and income tax revenue for the city if Davenport University should decide to move its campus outside the city. In addition to the above, the City Council also sent a terrible message that the Lansing is not a good place to do business unless you have cleared it with certain members of the Lansing City Council, who would rather muddle in administrative matters than set policy for the city. Perhaps they are unaware of city charter changes 20 years ago which established a strong mayor form of government. It is some of these same City Council members who turned down the request by Lansing Community College to acquire the North Grand Avenue

track record of change in Japanese market access would help Michigan manufacturers by creating a level playing field on which they can compete and win. We’re not asking for any special favors or treatment in the Japanese market — just to be held to the same trade standards Japan holds its own auto industry to. We know that American autos can compete with any other nation’s auto manufacturers — which is good for Michigan jobs. Michigan’s automakers build the finest vehicles in the world. Increasing American vehicle exports will help all Michigan manufacturers — which is why we’re calling on Michigan’s congressional delegation to support the Trans-Pacific Partnership and ask Japan to open its auto market to international competition, before it is invited to enjoy preferential access to the American auto market. Fair and simple — if we compete on a level global playing field, Michigan prospers.

These are the building blocks that are vital to secure them with the cutting edge technologies to attain jobs in high precision machining and manufacturing that will produce greater potential earnings. There is a need for young entrants into the work arena who are eager and committed, as well as in good command of what have quickly become the “new basics.” The raised bar on math and science would indicate that we should have a pool of applicants with strong skill sets to fit the current employer needs. Students who embrace taking the extra step in their high school career to reach beyond what is simply required to graduate will find that they will be welcome additions to local employers. Our youth are the country’s future. Whether we lag behind or sprint ahead as a nation, depends essentially on them.

Perhaps we would not be in today’s situation had they done the right thing and approved that request by the community college to acquire the North Grand Avenue ramp for future community college expansion. The Lansing Community College Board also shares some of the responsibilities for this mess because the board

has failed to set forth a master plan for the future expansion of the college that can be approved by the city after consultation with the residents and property owners of the downtown. The board seems to prefer a piecemeal approach to expansion and operates like a private corporation rather than a public body. This must change. Lansing government needs to welcome development and foster a positive climate for investment if we are to become that great city that we have potential to be. We all have a chance to start by electing new City Council members this November who are positive and willing to work for the betterment of the city, rather than engage in small town politics. Lansing desires better.

TALK ABOUT IT THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: What do you think about the Occupy Wall Street movement?

No extra wealth to redistribute The protesters seem to be angry at banking and big business. I am also, but banks and big business are just reacting to the unintended consequences of state and federal legislation. If a country has one of the highest corporate tax brackets in the world, no one should be surprised when corporations move operations out of that country. Another example is Fannie Mae and the credit crisis. They are angry about not having good jobs. Look at their pictures and their behavior, would you hire them? They seem to want more wealth redistribution, and I don’t think there is any extra to redistribute right now.



Applaud the effort to speak out I’m so glad to see the sheep waking from their slumber. It sometimes takes something as big as this to get people really engaged in the process. I applaud the fact that thousands of people are voicing their opinions and actually showing up, trying peacefully to speak out on the economic matters at hand. Whether they will be heard or not remains to be seen.

If the protest was against our government’s continual intrusion into controlling more and more of our lives: I might join them.

EU wants banks to take bigger hit in Greece crisis Alvise Armellini


PARIS — Banks will be asked to take a hit on Greece bigger than the 21 percent haircut offered to them in July, French Finance Minister Francois Baroin said Saturday. “We will have an agreement on that issue. To tell you today the ďŹ gure that we will arrive at would go against the schedule of the negotiations,â€? Baroin said after chairing a two-day Group of 20 (G20) major economies meeting in Paris. Further debt relief for Greece, along with bank recapitalizations, bolstering euro bailout facilities and strengthening eurozone discipline rules, is part of the eurozone crisis resolution plan expected to be endorsed by a European Union summit on Oct. 23.

would drive investors away from other tottering eurozone economies. “We will refuse all solutions that lead to a credit event,� he said, referring to an outcome that would trigger a default-like outcome and likely fuel market panic.

Write-off cheaper

Meanwhile, a major write-off of Greek sovereign debt would be a cheaper option for Germany than continuing eurozone bailouts for Athens, according to economists quoted by a German weekly newspaper on Saturday. The experts for the German Institute of Economic Research DIW calculated it would cost Germany 45.9 billion euros ($63 billion) up to 2020 if Greece were let off 60 percent of its debt, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung reported. The forecast included the cost of supporting European Union banks needing a bailout after a partial Greek default. The report said the overall cost of continuing without any default would be 3 billion euros more, or 49 billion euros, up to 2020.

Pa. drilling town’s water still fouled Gas company, residents at odds three years later Michael Rubinkam The Associated Press

DIMOCK, Pa. — Three years after residents ďŹ rst noticed something wrong with their drinking-water wells, tanker trucks still rumble daily through this rural northeastern Pennsylvania village where methane gas courses through the aquifer and homeowners can light their water on ďŹ re. One of the trucks stops at Ron and Jean Carter’s home and reďŹ lls a 550-gallon plastic “water buffaloâ€? container that supplies the couple with water for bathing, cleaning clothes and washing dishes. A loud hissing noise emanates from the vent stack that was connected to the Carters’ water well to prevent an explosion — an indication, they said, the well is still laced with dangerous levels of methane. “We’re very tired of it,â€? said Jean Carter, 72. Tired of the buffalo in their yard, tired of worrying about the groundwater under their house, and tired of the ďŹ ght that has consumed Dimock every day since the fall of 2008.

Drilling halted Like everyone else here, the Carters are eager to turn the page on the most highly publicized case of methane contamination to emerge from the early days of Pennsylvania’s naturalgas drilling boom. Cabot Oil & Gas Corp., the Houston-based energy ďŹ rm held responsible and ďŹ ned hundreds of thousands of dollars for polluting the groundwater, is just as anxious to resume drilling in a 9-square-mile area of Dimock that has been placed off-limits to the company until it repairs the damage.

A sign and a jug of water from her well is seen in front of Julie Sautner’s home in Dimock, Pa.


Jean Carter’s property has a gas well next door in Dimock, Pa. State regulators blame faulty gas wells drilled by Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. for leaking methane into the groundwater in Dimock.

State regulators blame faulty gas wells drilled by Cabot for leaking methane into Dimock’s groundwater. It was the ďŹ rst serious case of methane migration connected to Pennsylvania’s 3-year-old drilling boom. State regulators blame faulty gas wells drilled by Cabot for leaking methane into Dimock’s groundwater. It was the ďŹ rst serious case of methane migration connected to Pennsylvania’s 3-year-old drilling boom, raising fears of potential environmental harm throughout the giant Marcellus Shale gas ďŹ eld. Drilling critics point to Dimock as a prime example of what can and does go wrong. Methane from gas-drilling operations has since been reported in the water supplies of several other Pennsylvania communities, forcing residents to stop using their wells and live off water buffaloes and bottled water. Though gas companies often deny responsibility for the pollution, the state has imposed more stringent well-construction standards

designed to prevent stray gas from polluting groundwater.

Costly treatments Dimock’s long quest for clean water may ďŹ nally be reaching a critical stage. After a series of false starts, Cabot, one of the largest drillers in the Marcellus, said it has met the state’s Oct. 17 deadline to restore or replace Dimock’s water supply, installing treatment systems in some houses that have removed the methane. Residents who have ďŹ led suit against Cabot disagree, saying their water is still tainted and unusable. Another homeowner claims the $30,000 treatment system that Cabot put in failed to work. Ultimately, it will fall to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Pro-

tection to decide whether Cabot has fulďŹ lled its obligation to the residents, whose story was highlighted in last year’s Oscar-nominated documentary “Gasland.â€? If regulators sign off, the company plans to resume work on a dozen gas wells in Dimock, a tiny crossroads in the heart of one of the most proliďŹ c gas-bearing regions of Pennsylvania. And, in a move sure to infuriate residents, it also will stop paying for water deliveries to the Carters and several others whose wells were tainted with methane and, some say, toxic chemicals.

Obama challenges GOP over jobs bill on the streets and firefighters back on the job,” Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday. “And if they vote ‘no’ on that, they’ll have to tell you why,” he said. “They’ll have to tell you why teachers in your community don’t deserve a paycheck again. They’ll have to tell your kids why they don’t deserve to have their teacher back. They’ll have to tell you why they’re against common-sense proposals that would help families and strengthen our communities right now.” Obama recorded the weekly address from the Detroit area, where he traveled Friday with the president of South Korea to highlight congressional passage of a free-trade agreement with South Korea as well as pacts with Colombia and Panama.

Republicans say president being partisan The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said he’s going to travel the country telling lawmakers to do their jobs and vote in favor of his economic proposals. Coming off a week when his nearly $450 billion jobs bill died in the Senate, Obama made no reference to that failure, instead promising to renew efforts to get Republicans to vote on individual components of the legislation. “Next week, I’m urging members of Congress to vote on putting hundreds of thousands of teachers back in the classroom, cops back

Since 1936

The jobs bill includes extension of a payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits as well as spending on public works projects and help for local governments to keep teachers and other public workers on the job. Republicans used their weekly address to criticize Obama’s proposals while saying that they want to work with the president to create jobs, just without “more Washington spending and taxes.” “The president needs to get off the sidelines and get involved,” said Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. “The president needs to come off the campaign trail and get to work.” And according to McCarthy it’s Obama — not the GOP — playing partisan games. “Americans deserve progress, not partisanship,” McCarthy said.

Challenges loom as world population hits milestone this month David Crary The Associated Press

She’s a 40-year-old mother of eight, with a ninth child due soon. The family homestead in a Burundi village is too small to provide enough food, and three of the children have quit school for lack of money to pay required fees. “I regret to have made all those children,” said Godelive Ndageramiwe. “If I were to start over, I would only make two or three.” At Ahmed Kasadha’s prosperous farm in Uganda, it’s a different story. “My father had 25 children — I have only 14 so far, and expect to produce more in the future,” said Kasadha, who has two wives. He considers a large family a sign of success and a guarantee of support in his old age. By the time Ndageramiwe’s ninth child arrives, and any further members of the Kasadha clan, the world’s population will have passed a momentous milestone. As of Oct. 31, according to the U.N. Population Fund, there will be 7 billion people sharing Earth’s land and resources. In Western Europe, Japan and Russia, it will be an ironic milestone amid worries about low birthrates and aging populations. In China and India, the two most populous nations, it’s an occasion to reassess policies that have already slowed once-rapid growth.

Sobering news But in Burundi, Uganda and the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, the demographic news is mostly sobering as the region staggers under the double burden of the world’s highest birthrates and deepest poverty. The regional population of nearly 900 million could reach 2 billion in 40 years at current rates, accounting for about half of the projected global population growth over that span. “Most of that growth will be in Africa’s cities, and in those cities it will almost all be in slums where living conditions are horrible,” said John Bongaarts of the Population Council, a New York-based research organization. Is catastrophe inevitable? Not necessarily. But experts say most of Africa — and other high-growth developing nations such as Afghanistan and Pakistan — will be hard-pressed to furnish enough food, water and jobs for their people, especially without major new family-planning initiatives. “Extreme poverty and large families tend to reinforce each other,” said Lester Brown, the environmental analyst who heads the Earth Policy Institute in Washington. “The challenge is to intervene in that cycle and accelerate the shift to smaller families.” Without such intervention, Brown said, food and water shortages could fuel political destabilization in developing regions. “There’s quite a bit of land that could produce food if we had the water to go with it,” he said. “It’s water that’s becoming the real constraint.” The International Water Management Institute shares these concerns, pre-

dicting that by 2025 about 1.8 billion people will live in places suffering from severe water scarcity.

10 billion by 2083 According to demographers, the world’s population didn’t reach 1 billion until 1804, and it took 123 years to hit the 2 billion mark in 1927. Then the pace accelerated — 3 billion in 1959, 4 billion in 1974, 5 billion in 1987, 6 billion in 1998. Looking ahead, the U.N. projects that the world population will reach 8 billion by 2025, 10 billion by 2083. But the numbers could be much higher or lower, depending on such factors as access to birth control, infant mortality rates and average life expectancy — which has risen from 48 years in 1950 to 69 years today. “Overall, this is not a cause for alarm — the world has absorbed big gains since 1950,” said Bongaarts, a vice president of the Population Council. But he cautioned that strains are intensifying: rising energy and food prices, environmental stresses, more than 900 million people undernourished. “For the rich, it’s totally manageable,” Bongaarts said. “It’s the poor, everywhere, who will be hurt the most.” The executive director of the U.N. Population Fund, former Nigerian health minister Babatunde Osotimehin, describes the 7 billion milestone as a call to action — especially in the realm of enabling adolescent girls to stay in school and empowering


women to control the number of children they have. “It’s an opportunity to bring the issues of population, women’s rights and family planning back to center stage,” he said in an interview. “There are 215 million women worldwide who need family planning and don’t get it. If we can change that, and these women can take charge of their lives, we’ll have a better world.” But as Osotimehin noted, population-related challenges vary dramatically around the world. Reporters on four continents examined some of most distinctive examples:

The Asian giants Across India, the teeming slums, congested streets, and crowded trains and trams are testimony to the country’s burgeoning population. Already the second most populous country, with 1.2 billion people, India is expected to overtake China around 2030 when its population soars to an estimated 1.6 billion. But even as the numbers increase, the pace of the growth has slowed. Demographers say India’s fertility rate — now 2.6 children per woman — should fall to 2.1 by 2025 and to 1.8 by 2035. More than half of India’s population is under 25, and some policy planners say this “youth dividend” could fuel a productive surge over the next few decades. But population experts caution that the dividend could prove to be a liability without vast social investments. For now, China remains

the most populous nation, with 1.34 billion people. In the past decade it added 73.9 million, more than the population of France or Thailand. Nonetheless, its growth has slowed dramatically and the population is projected to start shrinking in 2027. By 2050, according to some demographers, it will be smaller than it is today.

industrialized nations. Its fertility rate is just below the replacement rate of 2.1 children per woman, but its population has been increasing by almost 1 percent annually due to immigration. With 312 million people, the U.S. is the third most populous country after China and India.

Europe and the U.S.

Lagos, Nigeria, is expected to overtake Cairo soon as Africa’s largest city. Private water vendors there do a brisk business in the many neighborhoods that otherwise lack access to potable water. The drone of generators is omnipresent, at offices and markets, in neighborhoods rich and poor, because the power grid doesn’t produce enough power. Such is daily life in Nigeria’s commercial capital, where the population is estimated at 15 million and growing at 6 percent or more each year. Problems with traffic conges-

Spain used to give parents more than $3,000 for every newborn child to encourage families to reverse the country’s low birth rate. But the checks stopped coming with Spain’s austerity measures, raising the question of who will pay the bills to support the elderly in the years ahead. It’s a question bedeviling many European countries which have grappled for years over how to cope with shrinking birth rates and aging populations. The United States has one of the highest population growth rates among


tion, sanitation and water supplies are staggering; a recent article in UN-Habitat said two-thirds of the residents live in poverty. In Uganda, another fastgrowing country, President Yoweri Museveni used to be disdainful of population control. Recently, the government has conceded that its population growth rate must be curbed because the economy can’t keep pace. Earlier this year, anti-government protests by unemployed youths and other aggrieved Ugandans flared in several communities, and nine marchers were killed in confrontations with police. Another of the fastest-growing countries is Burundi. With roughly 8.6 million people, it’s the second most densely populated African country after neighboring Rwanda. Omer Ndayishimiye, head of Burundi’s Population Department, said continued high growth coincides with dwindling natural resources. Land suitable for farming will decline, and poverty will be rampant, he said, noting that 90 percent of the population rely on farming to survive. The government has been trying to raise awareness about the demographic challenges among the clergy, civic leaders and the general public. “We are suggesting couples to go to health clinics to get taught different birth control methods,” Ndayishimiye said. “But we are facing some barriers. ... Many Burundians still see children as a source of wealth.”

Even bipartisanship won’t head off tussles with some powerful interest groups. A major battle is already brewing over whether to make military service members pay more for their health care and to make military pensions less generous for future enlistees. “We’re ďŹ ghting this,â€? said Joe Davis, a spokesman for the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which is encouraging its 2 million members to contact their lawmakers and argue against any changes. Failure to come up with a plan would trigger acrossthe-board budget cuts of more than $1 trillion, shared evenly by defense and domestic programs. Defense hawks promise to try to reverse any automatic defense cuts. Meanwhile, time is slipping. Some policy experts say it’s impractical for the supercommittee, with its small staff and facing a Nov. 23 deadline, to tackle so many complex and controversial topics. One option might be for the supercommittee to issue orders to regular congressional committees to ďŹ ll in details next year. That approach, often mentioned as an option for tax reform, has its aws as well. “They can do it, but will they? Do they want to tackle any of those subjects in what is going to be a tumultuous election year?â€? said Steve Bell, an economic analyst at the Bipartisan Policy Center.

Andrew Taylor WASHINGTON — Conservative senators are urging the debt-cutting supercommittee to raise the eligibility age for Medicare and require many retirees to pay more. The top Senate Republican on defense is endorsing some of President Barack Obama’s proposed beneďŹ t curbs for the military. Even farm state lawmakers are offering cuts to agriculture subsidies and food programs. Friday’s deadline for lawmakers to offer ideas to Congress’ bipartisan 12-member panel brought out a ood of advice. Some lawmakers offered up sacred cows. Others just restated political talking points. Whether it will help the supercommittee make actual progress remains to be seen. What appears clear is that the fundamental disputes remain the same: Democrats and Republicans remain at loggerheads on taxes and proposals to cut beneďŹ t programs such as Medicare. Republicans are, so far, standing fast against tax increases; Democrats won’t touch Medicare without them. It’s not at all certain that the panel, due to act by Nov. 23, will ďŹ nd success in reaching its goal of generating at least $1.2 trillion in deďŹ cit savings over the coming decade. The conventional wisdom in Washington is that it won’t. “It’s impossible to do it in the next month,â€? said Joseph Minarik, research director for the private, business-led Committee for Economic Development, citing the technical complexities of crafting such a measure as well as the political challenges of enacting it. “DeďŹ cit reduction is doing things you don’t want to do. The political pressures are awful.â€?

Stunned by bloodshed, Egyptians torn on army Egypt. Army troops waded in, and armored personnel carriers barreled through the crowds. The violence killed 26 people, including at least 21 Christians, some crushed by vehicles or shot to death. State media said three soldiers were among the dead.

Crackdown on protesters has eroded trust GIL ELIYAHO/ASSOCIATED PRESS

Noam Schalit, father of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit, sets up an Israeli flag Friday in Mitzpe Hila, Israel.

Israel begins formal pardoning process The Associated Press

JERUSALEM — Israel’s president on Saturday began the process of formally pardoning hundreds of Palestinian prisoners who are to be released in exchange for an Israeli soldier held by Gaza militants for five years. A spokeswoman for President Shimon Peres said he received the files of hundreds of prisoners set for release in the first phase of the deal and has 48 hours to sign the pardons. The swap likely will happen Tuesday. Under the deal, 1,027 Palestinians — including some behind attacks on Israelis — will be released in two stages in return for Sgt. Gilad Schalit, who was captured by Hamas-backed militants in a 2006 cross-border raid.

An uneven exchange Israel has been coerced into uneven prisoner exchange deals for decades. This swap, however, is the most lopsided to date. Critics say it encourages more abductions, is unjust to families of those killed and also poses the risk that freed killers will return to violence. The list of prisoners included in the deal is to be released publicly, and in a mostly symbolic gesture, Israelis will be able to raise appeals.

Among the Palestinian prisoners to be freed are many involved in plotting suicide bombings inside cafe’s and buses as well as shooting attacks that killed hundreds of Israelis and injured many more. Little is known of the captured Israeli soldier’s condition. Hamas banned the Red Cross from visiting him and only have released a short audio and video statement confirming he was alive.

Safe transfer Israeli well-wishers from across the country visited the Schalit family home Thursday where preparations were under way for his return. “It’s not over until it’s over and Gilad is home,” said his father, Noam Schalit. “This is the Middle East and anything can happen.” In the West Bank and Gaza, families waited in anticipation for the return of their loved ones. The prisoners are highly regarded in Palestinian society. Hamas officials were in talks with Egyptian intelligence officers in Cairo to work out the intricate mechanics of how to safely transfer Schalit. Hamas is eager to keep secret the location in Gaza where they have held Schalit, no easy feat in a tiny sliver of territory crammed with 1.6 million people.

Sarah El Deeb The Associated Press

CAIRO — An army crackdown on a protest that killed more than 20 Christians has not only stunned Egyptians, it has left them with deeply torn feelings toward the force seen as the protector of the nation. Even supporters of the ruling military are grappling with the question of how the bloodshed could have happened. The deaths a week ago deepened mistrust of the military among the “revolutionary” sector, the politically active liberal and leftist activists who have been leading protests against the generals’ rule for months. They have become increasingly vocal in calls for the army to step aside. A broader sector of the public has been thrown into shocked confusion. Many Egyptians view the military as the last bastion of stability — a force “made up of our own sons,” as many often say — and tend to trust it to handle the transition toward a democratic system. So images of army troops wildly running over protesters with armored vehicles have jolted them.

Mixed reactions Some try to find excuses for the ruling junta or nervously defend it. Intertwined in the reaction are the religious tensions between Egypt’s Muslim majority and Christian minority. The fact that victims were Christians has made some less sympathetic or more willing to forgive the army’s actions. Others have been so shocked they have joined the criticism. “This was an awful

He can’t bring himself to believe the accusations by some that troops killed protesters intentionally, but the bloodshed proved to him that the generals are not equipped to run civilian affairs. Moreover, he’s fears wider sectarian turmoil in Egypt. “I am too embarrassed to send condolences to my Christian friends,” he said. “I personally need

someone to give me condolences.” Like others, he was now afraid to join protests, fearing chaos or security retaliation.

Post-Mubarak The violence was the deadliest since the military took over Egypt following the Feb. 11 fall of President Hosni Mubarak — and was a stark contrast to the idealistic sense of Muslim-Christian unity that flourished during the anti-Mubarak uprising. It began on the night of Oct. 9 when thousands of Christians demonstrated outside the state television building, protesting an attack on a church in southern

In the first official news conference after the violence, the military tried to exonerate itself, blaming the Christians and “hidden hands” for starting the violence, denying its troops shot any protesters or intentionally ran them over. Witnesses said soldiers started the melee. Videos showing soldiers beating and shooting into crowds and armored vehicles seeming to chase protesters cast doubt on the military’s account. Many activists accuse the military of intentionally sparking the bloodshed — or at least exploiting it and the sectarian tensions — to scare Egyptians from protesting and to justify its hold on power. They say the bloody attack has derailed discussion of how to hold parliament elections due to begin on Nov. 28. On Friday, a march through Cairo demanding justice for victims came under a hail of rocks thrown by army supporters. Some Muslim clerics have increased criticism of Christians’ demands for equal rights. Christians, mainly from the Coptic Orthodox Church, make up around10percentofEgypt’s population of 85 million. A cleric delivering his Friday sermon in a staterun mosque in Alexandria warned Christians against demanding a new law to ease restrictions on building churches and accused them of seeking foreign protection. The Muslim Brotherhood said now is not the time for Christians to press demands.

Amber Carvaly writes notes last month in mortuary science class at Cypress College. Carvaly said, “We can’t appreciate life without appreciating death. I want to help people realize this.”

Many focus on the benevolence of what others view as a ‘dismal trade’ Thomas Curwen

of her after her strokes, and he didn’t attend her funeral. He loved his Grandma Evelyn but couldn’t bring himself to say goodbye. Six years after her death, he picked up a phone book and applied for an entry-level job at a mortuary. Mendoza, 39, encountered grief at the convalescent home where she worked as a licensed vocational nurse. She grew close to her patients and remembers Bebe, whom she considered a grandmother, well after she died. Carvaly can’t say whether her losses have been resolved. Death has always caught her eye: Forest Lawn, off the Ventura Freeway, looking so beautiful and peaceful; her artwork with its dark anime styling.

MCT News Service

LOS ANGELES — Not long after she began studying to become a mortician, Amber Carvaly started to dream about death. In one dream, she found herself in an embalming room surrounded by gleaming silver tables. In another, she found herself in a cemetery, and in a third, her grandmother had died and, as her mother stood by, Carvaly let out an ear-piercing, heart-wrenching scream. Each time she awoke in her studio apartment in Eagle Rock scared, yet strangely reassured. Weeks into a demanding curriculum on such topics as the cultural history of undertaking, preparation for embalming and funeral ceremonies, she hadn’t grown numb. Carvaly, 27, has experienced her share of loss — a great-grandmother, a cousin who took his life, an uncle who died in a car crash, fathers of friends in high school — nothing inordinate, but meaningful nonetheless, and she is afraid of what lies beyond the last breath. But fear is what drives her. Somewhere amid the smell of formaldehyde, the sweet taste of energy drinks and pages of anatomy, accounting, counseling and law, she is searching for a profession and an identity that will transcend the ephemera of daily life and show her how to live undaunted by mortality. She believes she has found it.

Typical classroom


Nicole Cardoza puts the final details on a model she sculpted from a photograph. The restorative arts class at the Cypress College Mortuary Science School teaches how to rebuild the damaged face of a cadaver in preparation for viewing. Mannequins in the background are used to learn application of makeup and hairstyles. The college is in Cypress, Calif.

“There is something beautiful about being part of the ritual of death, performing the most ancient of jobs.” AMBER CARVALY 27-year-old mortuary student

‘Ritual of death’

“There is something beautiful about being part of the ritual of death, performing the most ancient of jobs,” Carvaly said, “and the possibility of serving my life this way is the motivation for the days when I just want to lay my head on my desk and cry from stress.” Commuting nearly 80 miles each day, to and from Cypress College in Orange County, she works evenings waiting tables to help pay for school, and she studies well past midnight — all for the chance to work in a field known for its long hours andlowpay,onaveragestarting at $31,000 a year. Carvaly has a bachelor’s degree in women’s studies from the University of California-Riverside, was a makeup artist in Hollywood and worked with the homeless at a Los Angeles nonprofit. She considered becoming a nurse but found the schools too crowded to get the classes she needed. She wanted to do something noble and remembered a friend who learned undertaking in the Navy and had found a job at a mortuary in Corona. She listened

Glenn Bower (center), director of the Mortuary Science School at Cypress College, instructs first-semester students about the proper way to carry a casket from a Catholic church. to his stories about going to the morgue, setting up for a service, picking up the deceased — and she was amazed that someone her age could do this work. The mortuary program has an enrollment of nearly 125. Classes started in August and are designed to give students an edge when they take the state and national licensing exams. If Carvaly graduates in three semesters, she will have paid a little more than $5,000 to learn how to embalm and to arrange a funeral. Some have called the profession “the dismal trade,” but she sees nothing dismal about it. “We can’t appreciate life without appreciating death,” she said. “I want to help people realize this.”

On a Tuesday morning, Carvaly joins her study group — Chris Folger, Nina Mendoza and Theresa Wenning — in the Mortuary Science School’s library. Their first anatomy exam begins in less than two hours, and they need to drill. The four met the first week of class and realized they had a better chance making it through the next 18 months if they worked together. Carvaly’s other friends don’t understand. They think undertaking is all about handling dead bodies and selling caskets and headstones. She might as well carry a scythe, and when they say they don’t fear death, she hears in their voices an apathy that saddens her.

Her professors had warned her. “After a while,” Jolena Grande said, “many of your old friends will magically disappear.”

Beyond altruism

task others find repulsive, a chance to work where emotions are often so keen and a delight in the cocktail-party shock factor. You do what? What’s that like? The rigors of the program — between 15 and 18 hours in the classroom and about 30 hours or more studying each week — are designed to initiate the students into the challenges of the profession, as well as cull curiosity seekers. Grande has another theory for why students enroll. “I think many people enter funeral service in a quest for answers to their own unresolved grief,” she said. Grief came at early age to Wenning, 48. She still remembers the policeman who visited her family to inform them that her father had been killed in a traffic accident. She was 10, and, during the visitation at the funeral home, wondered why dad had such heavy makeup on his face and wore a turtleneck.

Grande, who has been teaching at Cypress since 1995, has been in the funeral industry since 1989. “I cannot begin to describe the number of people who are disgusted with my chosen occupation and my ‘sunny’ outlook on death,” she said. “I suppose we are all supposed to shun death and fear its place in our lives.” Students say they came to this school to be of service, but beyond the altruism Touched by death lie deeper currents: a fasFolger, 26, lost his grandcination with human anato- mother when he was in high my, a pride in performing a school. He had taken care

Room 222 is like any other college classroom: concrete walls, stained ceiling tiles, a mouse-gray carpet and more than 60 desks arranged in narrow rows. Glenn Bower pushes open an accordion screen and rolls to the front of the room a metal casket, painted autumn gold. “So,” he asks, “how many of you have familiarity with a Catholic funeral?” Out of nearly 40 students, a few hands rise, and Bower, 44, director of the mortuary science program, begins his lecture on the funeral Mass with a few props: vigil candles, a Paschal candle, an altar, a kneeler and the casket. The lessons are often pragmatic. Undertaking is a trade, and this is a vocational school. Students learn different ceremonies — religious and secular — and are taught a language of gestures and niceties meant to cast a consoling light upon loss. As Bower introduces the prie dieu, or kneeler, he walks over to the small upholstered bench in the front of the room. “Notice how it’s 45 degrees to the casket?” he asks. “This allows the person who’s praying to view the deceased.” The rituals fascinate Carvaly: where to place flowers during a visitation (immediate family’s closest), what to say to clients over the phone (avoid “thank you”; gratitude seems insensitive). She looks forward to learning how to embalm. When she describes the methodical process — the cleaning of the body, the massaging of the fluid into the tissues and extremities — she imagines a reflective quality to the work. Death, she believes, is a time to slow down; funerals are about making people stop to think about life. “At a time when you can bury grandma with a 16-digit credit card number, I think that’s terrible,” she said.

Water gushes from an electricity plant in Playas de Rosarito, Mexico, next to a site where U.S. agencies are considering putting large desalination plants.

Mexico’s newest export to U.S. could be water Elliot Spagat

New to desalination

SAN DIEGO — Mexico

Mexico is a relative newcomer to desalination. Its largest plant supplies 5 million gallons a day in the Baja California resort town of Cabo San Lucas, with a smattering of tiny ones on the Baja peninsula. Skeptics already question the two proposed plants in Playas de Rosarito. “It raises all kinds of red flags,” said Joe Geever, California policy coordinator for the Surfrider Foundation, an environmentalist group that has fought the Carlsbad plant for years in court, saying it will kill marine life and require too much electricity. Water agencies that supply much of Southern California, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Tijuana, Mexico, are pursuing the plant that would produce 50 million gallons a day in Rosarito near an existing electricity plant, with an eye toward starting operations in three to five years. Potential disagreements include how the new water stores will be used. The U.S. agencies want to consider helping pay for the plant and letting Mexico keep the water for booming areas of Tijuana and Rosarito. In exchange, Mexico would surrender some of its allotment from the Colorado River, sparing the cost of laying pipes from the plant to California. Mexico would never give up water from the Colorado, which feeds seven western U.S. states and northwest Mexico, said Jose Gutierrez, assistant director for binational affairs at Mexico’s National Water Commission. “The (1944) treaty carries great significance in our country,” he said. “We have to protect it fiercely.”

ships televisions, cars, sugar and medical equipment to the United States. Soon, it may be sending water north. Western states are looking south of the border for water, as four major U.S. water districts help plan one of two huge desalination plant proposals in Playas de Rosarito, about 15 miles south ofSanDiego.Combined,they would produce 150 million gallons a day, enough to supply more than 300,000 homes on both sides of the border. The plants are one strategy by both countries to wean themselves from the drought-prone Colorado River. Decades of friction over the Colorado, in fact, are said to be a hurdle to current desalination negotiations. The proposed plants also have sparked concerns that American water interests are simply trying to dodge U.S. environmental reviews and legal challenges.

Plant drawbacks Desalination plants can blight coastal landscapes, sucking in and killing fish eggs and larvae. They require massive amounts of electricity and dump millions of gallons of brine back into the ocean that can, if not properly disposed, also be harmful to fish. But desalination has helped quench demand in Australia, Saudi Arabia and other countries lacking fresh water. Dozens of proposals are on the drawing board in the United States to address water scarcity but the only big project to recently win regulators’ blessings would produce 50 million gallons a day in Carlsbad, near San Diego. A smaller plant was approved last year in Monterey, some 110 miles south

‘Harry Potter’ studio to open for tours ON THE WEB

Reassembled set is located near London


Wars,’ in the sense that stuff was here and real,â€? said Davis, who appeared in both “Return of the Jediâ€? and “The Phantom Menace.â€? “George Lucas would’ve built the ďŹ rst 6 feet of wall and left the rest to the computer.â€?

Jill Lawless The Associated Press

WATFORD, England — The magical world of Harry Potter is being meticulously reassembled at a former aerodrome near London. The collection of sheds and sound stages is where the eight ďŹ lms were shot over the course of a decade, and soon they will be home to the ofďŹ cial “Making of Harry Potterâ€? studio tour. With more than ďŹ ve months to go until the tour’s March 31 opening, stonemasons in hard hats are busy laying the (real) agstone oor of the Great Hall at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Even half-ďŹ nished, its Gothic arches, gargoyles and huge ďŹ replace are an impressive sight. When it’s completed, studio Warner Bros. hopes it will be, well, magic — though the spell was briey broken when advance tickets went on sale Thursday. Many fans found an error prevented them from booking tickets on the ofďŹ cial website. Warner Bros. blamed heavy trafďŹ c for the problem.

Authenticity key Movies are all about illusion, but creators of this tour are keen to stress its authenticity. The 150,000-squarefoot site will include only authentic sets, props and costumes, on the original studio site 20 miles northwest of London. For the movies’ cast, who spent a decade working here — the younger ones growing up on set — it can still evoke powerful feelings of nostalgia. “I get shudders down my spine every time I walk back in there,� said Tom Felton, the 24-year-old actor

A working studio Filming on the ďŹ nal Potter movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,â€? ďŹ nished last year, and it was released in July, to a global wave of emotion from fans. The studio tour is a way to keep the Harry Potter machine running — but to be a success, it must avoid feeling like a cynical cash-in. “I hope people will come on the sets and feel the warmth on the sets, and the experiences that have been here,â€? said Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the ďŹ lms. “They’re really lived in, all the sets. They don’t feel just like a studio, they do feel like a world.â€? It also will be a working movie studio. The facility — for years a ramshackle collection of aging buildings and temporary structures on the site of a former aircraft factory — is being turned into Warner Bros’ British base. The company says it will be the biggest studio complex in Europe when it opens next year. Many people feared the end of the Potter series would bring job losses in Britain’s movie industry, but Warner Bros.’ investment — which will make it the only U.S. studio with a permanent base in Britain — should bring a big boost. “It’s lovely to see the redevelopment,â€? Davis said. “I just wish they’d done it before we ďŹ lmed them. We spent years here in the damp and cold, and now I see these beautiful studios, with roofs.â€?


Actors from the “Harry Potterâ€? movie series (from left) Natalia Tena, Oliver Phelps, Rupert Grint, Mark Williams, Warwick Davis, James Phelps, Bonnie Wright and Tom Felton, poses for photographs recently at the ‘Great Hall,’ one of the sets of the movies during a tour in Watford, north of London. The studio is set to open March 31, 2012. who played Harry’s Muggle-hating Hogwarts rival, Draco Malfoy. “Immediately, as soon as you go back it just ďŹ res up a decade’s worth of memories. “IremembertheďŹ rsttime I went in there — it was on camera. (Director) Chris Columbus speciďŹ cally didn’t want us to see it before ďŹ lming, because we were only 11-year-old kids. So, our reaction when we walked in there was pretty much genuine.â€? The vast Great Hall, where hundreds of Hogwarts pupils dined, celebrated and were divided into houses by the mysterious Sorting Hat, will be the centerpiece of the tour, but there will be plenty more to delight Potter fans. Re-erected sets will in-

clude the cupboard under the stairs where Harry was forced to sleep by his miserly relatives, the Dursleys; the imposing Ministry of Magic; headmaster Albus Dumbledore’s book-lined ofďŹ ce; and Hogwarts’ classrooms, common room and a dormitory.

Behind the scenes The tour is spread across two soundstages — stages J and K, a pleasing but accidental tribute to Harry’s creator,J.K.Rowling.Theexisting stages here at Leavesden Studios are A through I. As well as the sets, visitors will learn how the series’ magical creatures were created in the studios’ workshops, and see some of the 200 shipping containers

full of props that producers have kept from the ďŹ lms. The eight Potter ďŹ lms made here between 2000 and 2010 were a mini-industry in themselves, employing both the cream of Britain’s acting talent and hundreds of craftspeople and technicians. Part of the tour’s aim is to show off the behind-thescenes skill that went into creating the spectacle. The level of detail is impressive. Dumbledore’s bookshelves are lined with individually titled books. His desk drawer opens to reveal quill-written letters and parchments that no moviegoer would ever have seen. The Weasley family kitchen will include a selfwashing frying pan, enchanted knitting needles

and other ingenious supernatural gadgets.

Detail ‘breathtaking’ “The attention to detail and the care and the thought is breathtaking, and still is to us, even after eight ďŹ lms,â€? said actor Mark Williams who played Arthur Weasley, father of Harry’s best friend Ron. “You’d go on set and go, ‘Bloody hell, it works!’ “I think people will be amazed about what was created as a physical prop rather than ďŹ xed later in the computer,â€? added Warwick Davis, who played Hogwarts charms master Prof. Filius Flitwick and the goblin Griphook. “Certainly for me, the ďŹ lming experience on these was quite different to the work I’d done on ‘Star

Libyan forces search Tripoli for those loyal to GadhaďŹ The Associated Press

TRIPOLI, Libya — Libyan ďŹ ghters fanned out in Tripoli neighborhoods Saturday to search for armed supporters of fugitive leader Moammar GadhaďŹ a day after a major gunbattle rocked the capital for the ďŹ rst time in two months. Dozens of men combed apartment buildings for suspects and weapons in the Abu Salim neighborhood, which is home to the prison of the same name that became notorious for the abuse and killing of GadhaďŹ opponents. A day earlier, a gunbattle broke out in the area when a group tried to raise the green ag that symbolizes the ousted regime. Revealing serious divisions within the revolutionary ranks, Saturday’s sweep of Abu Salim was being

It is one of many factions that have refused to put themselves under the umbrella of ofďŹ cial revolutionary authorities, raising fears of vigilante justice as the North African nation faces continued ďŹ ghting by loyalists of the fugitive leader.

Police say the shooter entered the restaurant shortly before 6 p.m. and Schrauben was shot during the armed robbery. Schrauben was found face down outside the restaurant.

More than 360 customers in midMichigan remained without power Saturday evening after high winds in the area toppled power lines. Tim Pietryga, spokesman for Consumers Energy, said outages began overnight Friday throughout much of Michigan, knocking out power to 8,600 of its customers statewide. About 320 customers were without power in Eaton County, 43 in Ingham County and two in Clinton County, he said. He said he expected most of the power in mid-Michigan to be restored by late Saturday night. Power was knocked out to about 53,000 homes and businesses across parts of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula on Saturday after gusting winds knocked tree limbs into power lines.

Hundreds gather at Capitol to call for economic reform Frustrated protesters say government fails to address their concerns Laura Misjak

The few hundred people outside the Capitol on Saturday morning included young and old, men and women and people of all races. There was no sign of the state’s richest citizens — the “1 percent” of wealthy Americans. The protesters were the “99 percent,” the non-millionaires, who rallied in Lansing as part of a growing “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began last month in New York. Decrying corporate greed and high unemployment, protesters chanted “We are the 99 percent,” and waved signs that read “Hey Millionaires!

WALKER — The father of a bank robbery suspect killed in a shootout with police said he “can’t ever forgive” his 32-year-old son for the death of an officer run over during a high-speed chase. “I have to live with the fact that an officer lost his life for no reason,” Derryl LaFave Sr. told The Grand Rapids Press. LaFave’s son and another suspect were in a sport utility vehicle that struck Walker officer Trevor Slot on Interstate 96 in Ottawa County on Thursday as he set up spike strips to stop the vehicle. The vehicle crashed soon after. Derryl LaFave Jr. and 36-year-old Kristopher Cheyne were shot and killed by police when they fired at officers while trying to flee, police said. Derryl LaFave Sr. said his son met Cheyne while they were serving time in federal prison. His son had been acquitted of bank robbery charges but was sentenced to 10 years for receiving a stolen firearm, according to the paper. Cheyne got 13 years in prison in 1997 on bank robbery and weapons charges. “My own personal feeling is ... they got caught and they both decided they weren’t going back to prison,” LaFave Sr. said. Police said Derryl LaFave Jr. and Cheyne forced employees of a Muskegon County bank into an office Thursday morning and took cash from a vault and teller drawers. No one was injured in the holdup. Police spotted the men’s SUV a short time later police said the men fired shots at officers from their vehicle. Officers told investigators it appeared the SUV’s driver intentionally ran over Slot. LaFave Sr. said he went to the Walker police department Friday to offer his condolences.

Clearing clutter requires redefining ‘useful’ I

f you’ve ever been in a newspaper newsroom, I don’t have to tell you that journalists are notorious pack rats. You just never know when you might need that 200-page 1986 study exploring the influence of solar flares on the behavior of bats … Anyway, the desk clutter at the State Journal these day is at an unprecedented minimum because the newsroom is being recarpeted and reconfigured. Since everything useful has to be taken out and eventually returned, staff members here are being strongly encouraged to refine our definition of “useful.”

In other words, the spacious trash bins wheeled in for the purge are being extremely well fed. All of which brings me to the subject of OHN awards. Plaques CHNEIDER swaddled in jschneider handsome walnut 377-1175 veneer … certificates of merit in aluminum frames … etched clearplastic obelisks glued to plastic bases with felt-covered bottoms … When the arrival of the


trash bins signaled the day of reckoning, I had 34 years’ worth of these testimonials stuck in my desk drawers, wedged among my computer cords, balanced in a precarious stack on one corner of my desk.

Awards for all No bragging intended here. Journalism is pretty much unequaled in its selfcongratulatory zeal; anybody in the business for any length of time is bound to accumulate a copious collection of awards. As they say, 80 percent of winning awards is just showing up. We’re grateful for the honor, etc., etc., but what are we supposed to do

with the hardware? Does anybody really hang these things on their walls? It’s not that I’m above self-aggrandizement; I have a collection of deer antlers — an impressive one, I might say — displayed in my pole barn. I’d be happy to show it to you any time. But a plaque announcing my third-place finish for commentary in the Tri-County Chapter of the National Association of Feature Writers …? I need that like I need another hole in my drywall.

The alternative? Box the trophies up, take them home, and put them … Where? Among all the other boxes of useless things in the basement that are likely to remain there, untouched, until our survivors face the dreary task of emptying the house?

Valued inheritance? “Don’t throw them away,” a colleague said, as I dropped a stack of plaques into the bin marked, “TRASH — NO PAPER.” “Your kids and grandkids will want to keep them.” Yeah, right … “Grandpa didn’t cure cancer, or feed the hungry, but, wow, look at this plastic thing with

his name on it.” I’m not so naive as to think the award machines will ever stop. We can’t help ourselves; we need tangible proof of our worth. So, here’s my idea: Instead of handing out plaques, framed certificates, and plastic things, give honorees useful items — socket wrenches, sets of wine glasses, golf balls, gift cards, etc. Or, better, make donations to local charities on behalf of the winners. And, no, they don’t need framed certificates saying so. Call John Schneider at 377-1175, send a fax to 377-1298 or email

YES: Emmons, Hune, Jones, Whitmer House Bill 4732, Revise youth employment limits: Passed 38-0 in the Senate. To

revise the law that restricts the maximum number of hours that minors age 16 and 17 who are in school can work.

Prohibits a federal agency or program and any state or local government that receives federal financial assistance under PPACA from requiring any health plan created or regulated under PPACA to discriminate against any institutional or individual health care entity based on the entity’s refusal to undergo training in the performance of induced abortions, require or provide such training, or refer for such training. Creates a cause of action for any violations of the abortion provisions of PPACA. Gives federal courts jurisdiction to prevent and redress actual or threatened violations of such provisions by issuing any form of legal or equitable relief, including injunctions and orders preventing the disbursement of all or a portion of federal financial assistance until the prohibited conduct has ceased.

shall have no force or effect and shall be treated as though they had never taken effect: (1) the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Major Sources: Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters; (2) the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Area Sources: Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers; (3) the Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources and Emission Guidelines for Existing Sources: Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration Units; and (4) Identification of Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials That are Solid Waste. Requires the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in place of such rules, to promulgate and finalize on the date that is 15 months after the date of the enactment of this Act regulations for industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers and process heaters and commercial and industrial solid waste incinerator units subject to such rules, that: (1) establish maximum achievable control technology standards, performance standards, and other requirements for hazardous air pollutants or solid waste combustion under the Clean Air Act; and (2) identify non-hazardous secondary materials that, when used as fuels or ingredients in combustion units of such boilers, heaters, or incinerator units, are solid waste under the Solid Waste Disposal Act for purposes of determining the extent to which such combustion units are required to meet emission standards for such pollutants under such Act. Requires the Administrator to establish a date for compliance with standards and requirements under such regulations, which shall be no earlier than five years after such a regulation’s effective date, after considering compliance costs, non-air quality health and environmental impacts and energy requirements, the feasibility of implementation, the availability of equipment, suppliers, and labor, and potential net employment impacts. Treats the date on which the Administrator proposes such a regulation establishing an emission standard as the proposal date for purposes of applying the definition of a “new source” to hazardous air pollutants requirements or of a “new solid waste incineration unit” to solid waste combustion requirements under the Clean Air Act. Requires the Administrator, in promulgating such regulations, to: (1) adopt the definitions of “commercial and industrial solid waste incineration unit,” “commercial and industrial waste,” and “contained gaseous material” in the rule entitled Standards for Performance of New Stationary Sources and Emission Guidelines for Existing Sources: Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration Units; (2) identify non-hazardous secondary material to be solid waste only if the material meets such definitions; (3) ensure that emissions standards for existing and new sources can be met under actual operating conditions consistently and concurrently with emission standards for all other air pollutants regulated by the rule for the source category, taking into account variability in actual source performance, source design, fuels, inputs, controls, ability to measure the pollutant emissions, and operating conditions; and (4) impose the least burdensome regulatory alternative.

“It’s never too late to honor our veterans.” DARRELL KOON, nephew of Staff Sgt. Everell Olson, who died after the Bataan Death March

Deaths Lansing » Benner, Robert John,


In this Sept. 28 photo, Edith Koon (right) accepts a Purple Heart award on behalf of her brother, Staff Sgt. Everell Olson, from U.S. Rep. Justin Amash (left) while Koon’s daughter, Donna Koon looks at the medal at Pilgrim Manor in Grand Rapids. Olson died in 1943 of injuries he suffered in the Bataan Death March.

After 68 years, military honors fallen veteran Michigan man died in 1943 in Japanese camp Jim Harger The Associated Press


Jan. 11, 1943, Staff Sgt. Everell Olson, 22, died in the Cabanatuan prison camp of disease and injuries he suffered during the infamous Bataan Death March. As one of thousands who died in the Philippines at the hands of their Japanese captors,theMichiganman’ssacrifice was nearly forgotten until recently, when his 109-yearold sister, Edith Koon, was presentedwithaPurpleHeart on Olson’s behalf. As family members and fellow residents gathered at Pilgrim Manor, U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Cascade Township, presented Edith Koon with the medal that had been overlooked since

A picture of Staff Sgt. Everell Olson is seen next to the Purple Heart medal he was posthumously awarded in Grand Rapids. The Michigan man’s sacrifice was nearly forgotten until recently, and his 109-year-old sister, Edith Koon, was presented the award on Olson’s behalf. her brother’s death. The presentation came about at the behest of Darrell Koon, her 83-year-old son, who began the medal application process in January after a chance meeting led him to a prison camp buddy of his uncle. “It’s never too late to honor our veterans,” said Darrell Koon, himself a veteran of World War II’s final days.

A recent presentation featuring Amash, Brig. Gen. Burton Francisco of the Michigan National Guard and Mayor George Heartwell might not have registered with his elderly mother, Koon said. “But I’m sure she knew something important was going on.” Koon, of Jackson, said he met Dr. Eugene Bleil, an East Lansing anesthesiolo-

gist, who told Koon he and his uncle were best friends during their services as aircraft mechanics and later, provisional infantrymen. “He was a good friend, he was my pinochle partner,” Bleil said recently. Bleil, who is 91, said he and Olson were surrendered to the Japanese by Gen. Douglas MacArthur after running out of food and ammo on Bataan Island. They were separated shortly after their capture, Bleil said. He was sent to Japan to work in a steel factory and Olson was left behind at the prison camp. Bleil said he finally was released in September 1945. “I think every man that was on Bataan and made that march deserves every piece of brass they’ve got,” said Bleil, who said he returned his Purple Heart during the 1980s to protest the Veterans Affairs Department’s refusal to treat persons with mental illnesses as a result of their captivity.

Hayt cried at her home Saturday, where she was surrounded by family and friends, as she recounted how she didn’t get a chance to talk to Marcus on Friday before she left for work. She first heard there was a shooting from one of Schrauben’s friends, who heard an employee had been shot at KFC. Hayt said she rushed to the restaurant and waited

for more than an hour before she learned her son had been shot to death. The KFC was closed Saturday, with a sign stating it would be closed until further notice. Haytsaidshe’llremember her first-born as a jokester who would make funny faces to give her a laugh.

Lansing Susan (Stampski) O’Brien, 41, of Lansing passed away Friday, Oct. 14, after a lengthy battle against cancer, surrounded by her family. First diagnosed with cancer in 2002, Suzi suffered many recurrences of various types of cancer with serene calmness, never complaining, and with courage and a braveness that made her a role model for everyone who knew her.

A licensed practical nurse, Suzi was employed for the past 10 years by the Michigan State University Department of Surgery, where she had many close friends, one of whom recently told Suzi she was "the bravest person I know."

Delta Twp. celebrates trail extension New connector links 2 trails in township Mary Jo White Lansing Community Newspapers

DELTA TWP. — Scores of local residents were there, some with children and dogs. So were township supervisor Ken Fletcher and trustees Jan Cunningham, Barb Poma and Cara Spagnuolo. Probably no one savored the grand opening of the East West Connector on Oct. 8 more than retired township engineer Dennis Williams — the nuts-andbolts guy who oversaw the

trail pathway from its blueprint stage to completion. He strolled the boardwalk with his wife, Judy, and friends, Don and Jan Engler, pausing to enjoy the view on the soaring bridge over Carrier Creek. Williams, however, was only part of the team that built the connector. There also was parks and recreation director Dick Benkert, who, along with the board and township manager Richard Watkins, was vigilant in capturing federal and state money that made the path possible. “What a great addition to Delta Township,” he said, calling the connector and the paths on either side of Creyts Road key to attracting new residents and mak-

“We made $420 and spent every penny of it. We basically cleaned out Horrocks.”

ing sure “the talent (we already have) stays here.” The young adults from the township’s Government Youth Council did their bit to add to the pathway’s beauty with sugar maples, hostas and other plantings. “We made $420 and spent every penny of it,” said Poma, the council coordinator. “We basically cleaned out Horrocks.” With the snip of a bright red ribbon, Fletcher and his three children, 8-year-old Claire, 6-year-old Bobby and 3-year-old Jack, declared the pathway, which runs from the library to Eastbury Road officially open. A final stage, which will take bikers and joggers to Canal Road, is currently under construction.

On such a sunny Saturday, there were many people on the pathway who weren’t even aware of the grand opening ceremonies, but were just out for fun. There was wheelchair user Ed Schneider and his home health aide, P.J. Cha. “He loves it,” said Cha of Schneider, who said without the paved surface, the path would be off-limits for him.

Several hundred people rally Saturday at the Capitol in support of the Occupy Lansing movement.

Occupy Lansing Continued From 1B

The Occupy Wall Street movement cropped up locally last week when a small group of campers began to occupy Lansing’s Reutter Park, with a spray-painted sheet that read “We are the 99%” hanging from trees. Korie Creaser, 70, of Bath Township, said she heard about the protest online, and said she represents women from her church, knitting group and other organizations that are frustrated. “There are a lot of us who are just your average, normal people who believe the politicians are now bought,” she said. Creaser, who is not a Democrat, said she hopes “that the voice of the people who are fed up is finally heard. What upsets me is on TV all you hear is Republicans debating ... and Tea Partiers, and meanwhile I think the silent majority of us are totally bewildered.” Brad O’Donnell, of Clinton Township and a Central Michigan University stu-

everyone’s lives miserable, they will never have to answer to anyone, and that is not right.” In Detroit, protesters began their first full day of occupation Saturday at a downtown park. Helen Stockton said about 200 members of Occupy Detroit camped overnight in Grand Circus Park.

Kiwanis Peanut Sale was a big success The Lansing Golden K Kiwanis Club would like to thank all of the adults, teenagers and children who donated money to the Kiwanis Peanut Sale on Sept. 16 and 17. The club also thanks the Sam’s Clubs on Edgewood Boulevard and in the Eastwood Towne Center, the Walmart stores on Edgewood Boulevard and in the Eastwood Towne Center, the Kroger store in Frandor and the Flap Jack Restaurant on South Cedar, for allowing our members to use their stores for the peanut sale. All money raised is used in Lansing, for support of children and other community affairs, especially at the Salvation

DETROIT — A lawyer. An accountant. And a salesman. Talk about the ideal prostitution ring operators — so suggests the federal government in making its latest sex ring bust in metro Detroit. Federal agents arrested three men last week on charges of running an online prostitution ring that threw meet-and-greet parties across metro Detroit and offered customers goodie bags filled with chocolates, panties and coupons good for sexual favors. The lawyer, Mark LeBlanc, 55, of West Bloomfield, was arrested Thursday at his office and was released on bond. The accountant, Steven Thompson, 50, was arrested at work, too. He is free on bond. The salesman, David Kilvington, 47, of Sterling Heights, who runs a database business, initially was ordered jailed, but was released Friday. The FBI learned about the operation after a concerned mother emailed authorities in 2007, alerting them that her teenage daughter became involved in the scheme. “I know that prostitution is against the law, but it’s the juveniles we’re worried about,” said FBI Special Agent Sandra Berchtold, who added that the prostitution ring recruited thousands of members. The last sex ring operation to get busted in metro Detroit was Miami Companions, once considered one of the largest escort services in the country, with more than 30,000 clients. The case ended with all the players pleading guilty this year. Attorney Paul DeCailly,

who represented Carr, said he believes this latest case is small potatoes. “It looks more like a swingers operation,” DeCailly said. “This isn’t Miami Companions.” Court records say confidential informants, a paper trail and PayPal records led the FBI to Kilvington, Thompson and LeBlanc. None could be reached for comment Friday. According to the charging document, the three defendants ran websites that allowed johns and call girls to chat and meet on various escort boards, where they also learned about scheduled meet-and-greets — parties where they actually would meet. The parties were held in public places across the state and in Windsor, drawing crowds of at least 100 people who came to meet and arrange for sex afterward, the complaint said. The operators charged cover at the door, and required both the customers and prostitutes to give donations ranging from $100 to $200 to attend. At a party on June 22, there was a $20 cover charge at the door, the complaint said. Inside, an escort named Wicked Kittie handed out gift bags for $10 each with chocolates, sex coupons or a prostitute’s set of underwear, the complaint said. To elude authorities, the operators used code words on their Web sites, such as “hobby” for sex and “service provider” for prostitute, documents charge.

You live in the digital age. Your mammogram should, too. Ingham Breast Care Center offers digital mammography, a revolutionary system using the latest computer-aided technology that produces much clearer images than analog mammography. The high quality of these images allows radiologists to examine even the smallest calcifications and masses. And, because digital mammography requires no film, images are generated in a matter of seconds and stored digitally, making your life easier by reducing waiting times and the need for repeat exams.

Our breast care team has advanced experience in women’s imaging and is led by Lewis Jones, MD, breast expert and board-certified radiologist.

When it comes to protecting yourself against breast cancer, the quality of your image is critical. For more information about digital mammography at Ingham Breast Care Center, call one of the locations below.

Minority populations often face increased risk of breast cancer, with implications on screening and treatment Alexia Elejalde-Ruiz MCT News Sservice


reast cancer unites women of all color and creed under a common banner of hope. But not all breasts are created equal. Different minority populations, as well as subgroups within those populations, face distinct challenges and risk factors when it comes to breast health. “We tend to (group) everything in terms that ‘one size fits all’ as opposed to looking at the disease as it impacts different populations,” said Lovell Jones, director of the Center for Research on Minority Health at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and co-founder of the Intercultural Cancer Council.


There’s been a push in recent years to personalize medicine to address the specific social, environmental and genetic risk factors of those subgroups for more effective screening and treatment. Until that happens on an institutional level, it’s up to women to understand individual risks.

African-Americans Though Caucasians have the highest incidence of breast cancer overall, African-American women have the highest rates of pre-menopausal breast cancer and are more likely to die from the disease at any age. Socioeconomic status and inadequate access to health care partly are to blame for higher morbidity among black women, but genes also play an important role, Jones said. African-American women are more than twice as likely as white women to be diagnosed with earlyonset, virulent tumors called triplenegatives, so named because they are not fueled by estrogen, progesterone or the HER2neu protein and See CANCER, Page 7C

FINDING THE WORDS What do you say to a friend who has been diagnosed with breast cancer? Even the best-intentioned person can become speechless or tongue-tied when reacting to a loved one’s breast cancer diagnosis. What should you say? And what should you not say? Several peer counselors at Y-Me National Breast Cancer Organization offered the statements they found most and least helpful to hear during their own breast cancer battles.



“I’m here for you, and we’ll see this through together.” “I’ll organize your friends to make dinners, drive car pools, shop, etc. — whatever would be helpful.”


“You’ll be fine.”

Many friends and family members rush to offer support upon hearing news of a cancer diagnosis — but then the calls subside, even as the cancer treatment stretches on. Stay connected for the long haul, checking in with periodic phone calls or emails to see how she’s doing or just to talk about something normal.

“You poor thing.” “I know how you feel.” “I know someone who died from that.”

“I know this is difficult for you, but please know I will do all I can to support you.”

“Call me if you need anything.”

“I’m so sorry you have to go through this, but I’m here to help in any way.”

“Will you be OK financially since you won’t be able to work?”

“Would you like to tell me more about it?”

“I think you should ... ”

Five arachnids you may find in your house David Moore


cary zombies and ghoulish goblins may soon be banging on your door in search of candy, but keep an eye out for frightening creatures of the eight-legged variety this time of year. Spiders will not bother to knock before coming inside. Even though they can appear menacing, most spiders are relatively harmless to humans. Here is an overview of some of the most talked-about species and ways to protect against them:

Brown Recluse

Orb Weaver

Varying in color from shades of light to dark brown, the Brown Recluse is found in the southern United States and portions of the Midwest. These spiders typically make their home in crawl spaces and basements but can nest in shoes, piles of clothing and even beds. Brown recluses usually bite in self defense, and their venom is particularly nasty and can cause tissue decay and ulcerating sores. If bitten by a brown recluse, immediately seek help from a


The Black Widow Most commonly known for its shiny black coloring and red hourglass marking, is found throughout the United States and prefers to hang out underneath rocks, piles of wood and other out-of-the-way areas like the garage or shed. Black widow bites usually occur when the spider is accidentally disturbed. Although the bite is rarely fatal, victims can experience cramping,

Black Widow

sweating, nausea and vomiting. These bites are particularly dangerous for young children, older adults and those with weakened immune systems. If bitten by a black widow, quickly seek medical attention.

Garden spider The Orb Weaver, or garden spider, can be a variety of colors, but most usually have black and yellow or green and

See SPIDERS, Page 6C

DAVID VS. GOLIATH Arachnophobia is one of the most common phobias. Although spiders are generally harmless and usually bite only in self defense, their presence is a sign that other insects are in the home. Contacting a pest control professional is always the best way to go when combating spider infestations, but taking the following steps can help protect against arachnids, too: » Store shoes in boxes and put seasonal clothing in garment bags or lid-sealed containers. Some spiders will take up residence in shoes or clothing that are left out. » Keep bed skirts from touching the floor, and pull the bed away from the wall. Spiders can crawl up bed skirts, comforters or the wall and find their way into the bed. » Wear heavy gloves when moving firewood, stones or objects that have been stored for long periods of time. » Eliminate piles of fire wood or other debris from around the home. These are attractive habitats for spiders. » Install screens on exterior vents and use caulk to seal openings around windows and doors.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23)

» You’ll be considered for a project. You would do a tremendous job in the role, but you need some guidance about how to best present yourself. Don’t try to do this alone. Give yourself the edge. Preparation will be the factor that determines your success.

» You’ll be torn between tactics. Should you try to fit in with the culture around you, or should you exert your independent spirit? Do both. First blend, and then, at a strategic moment, make your independent move.

» As you promote your interests, you are promoting yourself, as well. People assume that anyone who can present things with such enthusiasm must really have a lot of good going on in their life.

SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 21) » No one wants to be around a person who brings up his or her insecurities. And yet, there are those who habitually knock others down to get a feeling of superiority. Stick with those who treat their fel-

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) » Your future is calling you. The thing is, you’re still on the line with the past. Luckily, you have “call waiting.” Hang up the phone with the past. Click over now.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) » There’s a funny reason why you have to keep going in the direction you are going, but you don’t understand it yet. There’s something good in this: You relate to those in similar circumstances. — Holiday Mathis

Lisa Andrews, a registered dietitian and co-owner of Sound Bites Nutrition in Cincinnati, said to first ask what a patient’s nutritional needs are and help figure out what might appeal to him or her. “Cancer patients often don’t have any appetite, and things taste bad. Think outside the box to find something that appeals to them,” she said. “Be creative. Something bland like fruit and cottage cheese might work.” She suggests smoothies, since they’re easy to drink and digest, and lots of healthy things can be slipped into them. Andrews’ partner at Sound Bites Nutrition, Barbara Lattin, also a registered dietitian, said patients need protein. “But that’s not the thing that your body craves: you’re more likely to want the comfort foods like mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese. A sweeter flavor might help. “When I bring a friend something, I often bring soup,” said Sylvie Richard, a cancer survivor in Cincinnati. Soup or smoothies are easy to digest and can be put away for another day your friend’s appetite returns. Do be careful, though, about food safety. Cancer patients have suppressed immune systems. Follow all cooking temperature and refrigeration guidelines carefully.

Take a high-tech approach to wine drinking Pair It!

This app ($4.99) is a There is something de- handy tool to find the liciously low-tech about a best food to pair with the wine already in your glass of wine. Especially after a long, collection. plugged-in day at the office, it canbeareleasefromthetechnology that encumbers us. But that hasn’t stopped some from trying to make the whole experience a bit better using technology. From a website that helps log a wine cellar’s contents to apps that keep users in the know, there’s a lot out there for wine lovers. So whether you’re a seasoned oenophile or a wine newbie, here are some great tools here to help you on your way.

This cellar-tracking website is the premium stop for wine enthusiasts around the world. The mostly free site allows users to log each bottle of wine as it’s bought, creating an online list of everything in the collection. When a user drinks a wine, he or she is asked to leave a rating and notes about the tasting. Drinkers can leave their thoughts — did you get notes of tobacco, too? — and see what many others have thought about that bottle of wine. The result is an exhaustive database of nearly every wine commercially available today. For serious wine consumers, there’s no better site.

It’s available for both Android- and iOS-based mobile devices. Once a wine varietal is queued up, users can swirl their phone to be prompted

Built on the platform, this iPhone and iPad app ($2.99) allows for mobile access to the contents of a personal wine collection. New bottles of wine can be added through the app’s search tool. Bar codes also can be scanned using the iPhone’s camera, but that’s a bit spotty. The app also allows for side-by-side comparisons to compare things like price, region and user rating. It’s a great way to quickly log a bottle of wine enjoyed while out at a restaurant so it’s not forgotten. also integrates with Twitter so users can keep their friends updated with the best of what they’ve tasted.

This gadget is basically a cork with a long enclosed icicle attached to it. When placed in a bottle of wine, it can help bring it to a perfect temperature. White wines are often served too cold as they’re snatched right from the refrigerator and red wines are often served too warm at room temperature. The Corkcicle — made out of a nontoxic gel wrapped in BPA-free plastic — is stored in the freezer and can bring a room temperature red down to a more desirable cellar-like temperature in 10-15 minutes. For white wines, after they’re left to warm up a bit out of the refrigerator, the Corkcicle can help keep the wine cool for as long as an hour while sitting out. The Corkcicle runs $22.95 and is available at

with a list of foods that would best pair with the chosen wine. You can also just push a button, but where’s the fun in that?

Put-in-Bay’s quieter vibe After summer crowds leave, check out this Ohio island MCT News Service

SOUTH BASS ISLAND, Ohio — Some believe Putin-Bay is in Canada. Or that there’s a secret tunnel to the mainland. Or that the National Park Service monument is a really tall lighthouse. Or that the island is one continual wild party. There are so many myths about Put-in-Bay that locals have to laugh. “There is a book out there on lighthouses of Ohio, and fact-checkers called me to ask about ours,” says Blanca Stransky, superintendent of the Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial, which looms 372 feet over Lake Erie. “I said, ‘I don’t know why we are in the book, because I can assure you it’s not a lighthouse.’ They got really frustrated with me.” Even the island’s name is confusing. It is actually South Bass Island, but everyone just calls it Putin-Bay, the island town’s name. And although it is a quick 18-minute ferry ride north of Port Clinton, Ohio, it operates in its own little quirky, self-contained orbit, a sort of Key West of Ohio. “You have history here, and you also have the bars,” says Dusty Shaffer, director of the Wyland Gallery in town.

After the party To many, Put- in-Bay is the place for summer boaters and visitors to whoop it up. But on a Wednesday morning in late September, it’s a whole different story. Docks are empty, with lines hanging limp in the autumn sun. There’s not a single customer in the big Round House Bar in the center of town. Stores are still open, but few customers appear. Out in the vineyards, fat Concord and Niagara grapes are ready to drop. It’s as if the whole town is sighing, tired, and settling down for a long winter’s nap. “It’s open here for anoth-

er six weeks,” says Shaffer. “If you don’t like shoulderto-shoulder people, now’s the time to come.” Before I get to the part about how you can drive around the island in cool golf carts, let’s back up for a bit of history. Put-in-Bay is part of a small clump of islands in Lake Erie — Kelleys, Middle Bass, North Bass and some others — north of the Sandusky-Port Clinton region of Ohio. For recreational boaters, the islands are a popular summer destination. But Put-in-Bay played a pivotal role in America’s nautical history.

Battle site After the Revolution, young America still felt animosity toward Britain and had an eye on Canada’s land. It declared war on Britain in 1812. One of the war’s crucial battles — the Battle of Lake Erie — took place just off Put-In-Bay, where Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry based his command and all his ships. After capturing the entire British fleet in September 1813, he sent notice to Washington that “We have met the enemy, and they are ours.” The words on his vessel’s flag famously were “Don’t Give Up the Ship.” The words are more remembered now than the battle, but that day ensured that Michigan, Ohio and New York would remain part of the U.S. That’s why tiny Putin-Bay has the enormous Perry’s Victory memorial. Closed and under renovation since 2009, the memorial’s observation deck is due to reopen in June, just in time for the War of 1812 bicentennial. In September 2013, there will be huge commemorations at Put-In-Bay, including re-enactment of the battle with a fleet of tall ships.

Getting around Now to the golf carts. Put-in-Bay allows visitors to rent golf carts and drive them around on the roads. From the Miller Fer-

Put-In-Bay, Ohio, is two hours south of Detroit, and not far from the rest of the world, either — at least in spirit. ry on the west end, you can putter along the road, letting cars pass, taking your time. Since the island is only 3½ miles long and 1½ miles wide, a golf cart is plenty fast. MCT NEWS SERVICE You can stop at two wineries, small caves and The Put-in-Bay Winery is housed in the historic, Italianate-style Doller estate. Visitors can a chocolate museum. Bars sample island and other regional wines. and restaurants are open, but some curtail hours as IF YOU GO: season’s end nears. Take your cart to the far edges of the island or the state park. » GETTING THERE: From The other bonus of visiting in fall? On weekdays, you may have the road to yourself. Only about 350 people live on the island year-round, but about 750,000 tourists come each season. As September slides into October, there is a stillness to the island. “We still have events coming up like Oktoberfest and a wine festival, but it’s not so hectic. Most people who live here say it’s their favorite time of year,” says Julene Market, owner of Miller Boat Line, the ferry company. She lives on the island, grew up on the island, and her family has been here for four generations. Fall color will peak in Putin-Bay in early November, later than on the mainland. The ferry will stop running in late November. Then the island will sleep, dreaming of next year’s rowdy mischief.

therefore do not respond to current therapies that block or eliminate those hormones. Women in West Africa are similarly aficted, Jones said. Triple-negatives can be removed through surgery if caught early. Trouble is, young women and African-American women tend to have particularly dense breast tissue, making it hard for even a mammogram to catch some tumors. Research is under way to develop technology to identify tumor cells using a blood test.

Asians and PaciďŹ c Islanders Asian and PaciďŹ c Islander women have the lowest rates of breast cancer and morbidity of all the ethnic groups in the U.S. But those statistics can give Asian women a false sense of security, said Scarlett Lin Gomez, research scientist at the Cancer Prevention Institute of California. The subpopulations tell a very different story.

Lansing State Journal • Sunday, October 16, 2011 • 7C Women of Japanese descent have as high a breast cancer rate as white women, perhaps because they’ve been in the U.S. longest and are exposed to the same environmental and lifestyle risks, Gomez said. Filipina women have the lowest ďŹ ve-year survival rate of any other ethnic group, for reasons unknown. American-born Asians and immigrants living in the U.S. for a while get breast cancer up to 50 percent more frequently than their counterparts living in Asian countries, likely because of childbearing practices and more sedentary lifestyle, Lin Gomez said. Both Asian and Hispanic women are less likely to get regular mammograms than their white and black counterparts.


For Latinas, their lower rate of breast cancer incidence and mortality could be due to earlier age of ďŹ rst pregnancy and greater likelihood of breast-feeding, plus less use of post-menopausal hormone drugs, Thompson said. But Latinas are more likely than non-Hispanic whites to be diagnosed at a

younger age and with worse tumors — even with equal health care access, studies have shown, suggesting a genetic component. Hispanic women are more likely to have genetic mutations of the BRCA1 gene, which increases a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer in her lifetime, than whites, blacks or Asians, studies have shown. The Hispanic women in one study tended to carry the same mutation as the population most aficted with BRCA1 gene mutation, Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern European origin.

Lesbians also have higher-than-average risk factors. Research has shown lesbians are less likely than heterosexual women to seek routine health care. They also may be less likely to give birth before age 30, which can contribute to risk. What can women do with this information? Women should get a clinical breast exam every three years starting at 20 and a mammogram and exam every year starting at 40, Thompson said. But populations at higher risk should be more vigilant.

“Christmas With the First Ladies” (Insight Books, 160 pages, $29.95) is an attractive addition to the plethora of books on the history of the White House. Drawing on the materials from presidential libraries, Coleen Christian Burke has delved into history to put a human face on presidential Christmases as presented by our presidents and their wives. It starts in 1961 with the first administration of John F. Kennedy, when Jacqueline Kennedy — better known to most as Jackie — put together her first Christmas in the White House. She was known for her sophistication and international experience, which was reflected in her Christmas gifts. As early as September, “a letter to the U.S. embassy in Paris indicates beautiful Chanel chiffon scarves were found and purchased for Mrs. Kennedy to give as presents.” One of the great delights included in the book are personal pictures gathered from presidential archives. Here at the private family Christmas in Florida, Jackie is not the glamorous first lady but a harassed young mother, dressed in a deep pink pajamas — and pearls — dealing with two lively children on Christmas morning. Each first lady brings her own human touches to the White House. In the hard times of 1975, Betty Ford’s “Patchwork Christmas” trees were adorned with handmade decorations, done to be thrifty. Unfortunately, at the end they were more “expensive than the Christmas

In contrast, 11 years later, Nancy Reagan showed the country trees dripping with silver tinsel, fake snow and white lights during the “Christmas Special at the White House.” In 1983, she sat on the lap of gold-chainfestooned “The A-Team” star Mr. T — dressed as Santa Claus — who distributed gifts.

In 1990, she used the “Nutcracker” ballet as the theme and the trees had porcelain dancers and dance slippers, including one pair of pointe shoes autographed by “members of the

Lady Bird Johnson gave us a Christmas cranberry salad mold, to be used “whenever you serve chicken or turkey.” Rosalynn Carter made inexpensive and easy ornaments out of small cone birthday hats. After stuffing them with peanuts, gum drops and candy canes, she hung them on lace ribbons amid hundreds of white crocheted stars. For entertaining on a glittering level, Laura Bush’s “shimmering topiary champagne buckets” with silver balls can be made from

items found at the local craft and home improvement stores. Hillary Clinton was inspired by the poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and decorated with small miniature houses, needlepoint ornaments and edible cookies from culinary schools. Pat Nixon decorated the chandeliers with greens and pine cones. Decades later, Michelle Obama put cranberry garlands around the necks of the caryatids that flank the Red Room’s fireplace and hung decoupage state ornaments from community groups around the U.S. on the Blue Room’s tree. “Christmas” covers the history of the White House creche, the gingerbread house — which every family gives its own personal touch, such as having Bo, the Obama’s dog, in front of the house. The end result is a book that is rich with holiday spirit and brings the White House to life.

As usual, Kincaid gets into trouble, this time when local deputy Dolly Wakowski takes her to the site where the brutally slain body of a woman has been discovered at an abandoned farmhouse. The corpse of a dog is also found there; further investigation reveals that bodies of dead dogs have been thrown into the yards of Mexican migrant farm workers. Kincaid’s ex-husband is back on the scene; he provides her with an unusual job offer from Cecil Hawke, an eccentric, wealthy Englishman. Hawke wants her to edit his manuscript; Kincaid takes the job, only to discover a much darker side of the hopeful author. When another murder occurs, Kincaid and Wakowski are drawn deeper into the case, with deadly results.

RECAP » KEY PLAY Michigan trailed by a touchdown and had a first down at its own 35 with 4:40 left. MSU blitzed linebackers Denicos Allen and Max Bullough up the Lewis middle, and Bullough got right in the face of Denard Robinson. Robinson got rid of the ball, but it floated into the hands of MSU’s Isaiah Lewis, who returned it 39 yards for a score — showing it briefly to Robinson -— to ice the game.

» UNSUNG HERO MSU punter Mike Sadler had a busy and difficult day, but he came up with some key punts when the Spartans needed them. Sadler averaged 41.0 yards on five punts, hitting those lefty liners that rolled nicely. Sadler put one punt inside the Michigan 20, but four of his punts came against the wind and deep in his own end.

EAST LANSING — The hits came from every angle, many of them vicious, a few of them late, all of them meant to leave an impression. “That’s what we tried to do, 60 minutes of unnecessaryroughness,”MSUdefensivecoordinatorPatNarduzzi said. “Just glad it didn’t get called every snap.” The Michigan State defense dominated the Michigan offense on Saturday INSIDE at Spartan » Running Stadium and man: Baker knocked U- runs over M’s quarter- Michigan, back from the Page 2D game.

EAST LANSING — It was a different Kirk Cousins at the interview podium after Michigan State’s 28-14 victory on Saturday, but the end result of the game against Michigan was all too typical — Cousins leading the Spartans to a win.

He also tied Jeff Smoker for the most wins by a Spartan quarterback in program history with 21 victories. “I said earlier this week that to go 3-0 as a starter against them, to go four in a row as a part of this team would be a special victory as any-

EAST LANSING — “A League of Their Own” was a baseball movie. But that title would aptly describe the Lansing Catholic girls golf team the past two seasons. Saturday at Forest Akers East Golf Course, the Cougars blitzed the field for the second straight year, repeating as Division 4 champions — this time by 63 strokes over second-

place Flint Powers Catholic. Lansing Catholic won last year’s finals by 38 strokes. Adding to the astonishing domination was the weather conditions in which INSIDE L a n s i n g » Greater LanC a t h o l i c sing meet: p o s t e d Mason boys, very re- DeWitt girls spectable captures titles, s c o r e s .

DETROIT OUSTED FROM PLAYOFFS Miguel Cabrera hit two home runs, but it wasn’t nearly enough as the Tigers were eliminated from the American League playoffs15-5 by the Rangers on Saturday night. Texas took control of the game with a nine-run third inning and coasted the rest of the way.


Cousins was sharp, but the long-term story was MSU’s dominance up front. This looked like last season’s rushing attack. Some could say it also looked like last season’s U-M defense, but MSU wouldn’t have done this three weeks ago.

The biggest test of the season comes in a week when mighty Wisconsin comes to Spartan Stadium for a night game, but let’s say this right now: This MSU defense is absolutely for real and possibly good enough to lead the way to a division championship.

The Spartans just need to stop with the personal fouls. But this is always an emotional game and that emotion mostly served MSU well. Every unit is playing at a high level right now for the Spartans.

On such a windy day, the potential was there for busts and big plays, but neither team made the critical mistake. You can’t fault MSU for the successful fake field goal — Chris Norman was right there and nearly stopped it after a 3-yard gain.

Meanwhile, Mike Sadler delivered some critical punts into the wind to keep U-M far enough away for MSU’s defense to dig in. And Kevin Muma had an important deep kickoff and touchback into the wind in the fourth quarter.

There was way too much attention after the game on whether the Spartans played “dirty.” MSU went too far on a few plays, but the officials threw flags and the game went on. Stuff like that goes on in this game every year.

That shouldn’t overshadow the defense, running game and clutch passing that gave the Spartans this victory. MSU is starting to look like the team it hoped to be this season, and it’s certainly a team that can cope with adversity.

Before the Fearsome Foursome on MSU’s schedule (at Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, at Nebraska), the thought here was that 2-2 would be a good showing. Well, the Spartans are 2-0 so far. Wisconsin brings perhaps the nation’s best offense to Spartan Stadium on

Saturday — against what should be deemed one of its top defenses. And MSU’s offense is coming. Here’s another guess: The Spartans will be playing in the first Big Ten championship game on Dec. 3 if they get this many wins in the next two weeks:


After a flawless first drive, MSU stalled, though field position was a big part of that. In the second half, the Spartans won the game by driving down the field — and finishing two drives with touchdowns on key Kirk Cousins-to-Keshawn Martin plays.

EAST LANSING — Junior running back Edwin Baker had to feel bottled up through five games, averaging just 50 yards per game and getting to the end zone just once on the ground. But Baker picked a good time to finally bust out for the Spartans on Saturday. He carried the ball 26 times for 167 yards and a touchdown to lead MSU to a 28-14 victory over Michigan. “Rock got in to a zone. He was very effective,” MSU coach Mark Dantonio said, using Baker’s nickname. “We were able to run the ball effectively enough to keep the down and distance accordingly.” The 167 yards was 16 off Baker’s career high rushing total, which came against Florida Atlantic last season at Ford Field. “I wouldn’t say I needed it. I’m thankful Baker for it, but I don’t think that my running ability had anything to do with that,” Baker said. “We had problems with the offensive line and things like that, but when the offensive line does great as they did today, I’m going to play great and I feel that’s the reason why I wasn’t having the success I was having.” The offensive line paved the way Saturday, just as it did last year in a win against Michigan. A unit that was a question mark a few weeks ago helped MSU to 213 yards rushing as a team and did not allow a sack against a second straight marquee conference opponent. “We couldn’t stand back there and be one-dimensional, we had to run the football,” Dantonio said. “I think it’s a testament to the young guys. Those guys came out and they played really like veterans,” senior left guard Joel Foreman said. “We’re halfway through the season, but you know to play in a game like this that has this much hype and this atmosphere, it’s a hard thing and to play at a high level.” The extra week off with a bye helped give the offense line some extra work as well as some momentum. That gave Baker the idea that he was in for a big day. “I felt it all week. We had a great amount of time to prepare for these guys and just seeing (the offensive line) practice, I knew it was going to be a great week.” » CATCHING UP WITH KESHAWN: It was an up-anddown day for MSU senior wide receiver Keshawn Martin. He had three catches for 31 yards, including two touchdowns where he eluded Michigan defenders near the goal line and extended over the pylon for the score. While the two touchdown receptions tied a career high, Martin also lost a fumble in Spartan territory and had a few Martin drops, too. “I’m supposed to make plays out there. I dropped a couple, but I didn’t let that affect me. I just kept playing,” Martin said. “It was a little roller coaster, but sometimes you just got to forget about it and go to the next play.” » MR. PICK SIX: Sophomore Isaiah Lewis is developing a knack for returning his interceptions for touchdowns. Lewis helped seal Saturday’s game with a 39-yard interception return of Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson in the fourth quarter to put MSU up 28-14 with 4:31 to play. “We just blitzed and they got home and (Denard Robinson) just threw it. I’m back there in the middle of the field and when Isaiah caught that ball, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, he’s to the crib, you know it’s a touchdown,’” senior safety Trenton Robinson said. Lewis also returned an interception for a score against Central Michigan and has three picks on the season. » SADLER SOLID: Redshirt freshman punter Mike Sadler’s average of 41 yards per punt looked like a normal day on paper, but take a blustery day at Spartan Stadium in to account and it looked a lot more impressive. Gusts over 25 miles per hour ripped across the field steadily all game, with a strong wind blowing toward the south end Sadler zone. But Sadler used a low, rugby-style punting technique to help keep the ball low and out of the teeth of the wind. “Especially Sadler punting the football, I thought, pretty good against the wind,” Dantonio said when crediting the special teams’ play. “The majority of his punts were against the wind so it was tough down there.” » FASHION STATEMENT: The Nike Pro Combat Uniforms were on full display for the Spartans on Saturday, but the Wolverines also made a last-minute switch with their duds. After warming up in their traditional road white uniforms, Michigan switched to a more elaborate jersey that looked like a road version of Michigan’s legacy jerseys that were used against Notre Dame, with maize and blue stripes up the shoulder areas. The green, bronze and black uniforms of MSU won the day, however, and the Spartans wouldn’t mind donning the Pro Robinson Combat outfits again in the future. “I would love to wear these again. I’m sure a lot of the guys would love to wear these again,” Trenton Robinson said. “Our swag is just so high when you put these on.” » IT’S GOOD: Nineteen-year old MSU sophomore Andrew Johnson of Hudsonville kicked a 40-yard field goal into the wind between the third and fourth quarter of Saturday’s game to win the GMC Field Goal Challenge. Johnson won a 2012 GMC Acadia — valued at $32,605 — for his efforts.

day, was the story again. It bottled up U-M star junior quarterback Denard Robinson for the second straight season. He ran for 42 yards on 18 carries, his lowest rushing total as a starter. He completed just 9 of 24 passes — his lowest completion rate as a starter — for 123 yards and a 34-yard touchdown to Roy Roundtree early in the fourth that cut MSU’s lead to 21-14. The game was over when Robinson faced a blitz and heaved a pass into the arms of MSU safety Isaiah Lewis. The sophomore raced in for a 39-yard score with 4:31 left in the game, eliciting a satisfied roar from most of the crowd of 77,515. On the next possession, Robinson left the game with an undisclosed injury after receiving a late hit from MSU redshirt freshman defensive end Marcus Rush. It was the fifth and final MSU personal-foul penalty on the day — including two from sophomore end Will Gholston. Thatbroughtquestionsafter the game of whether the Spartans were playing dirty. “No, I don’t,” Kovacs said when asked if he thought so. “I’ve played in this game before so I know how it goes.” “You do have to be able to control your emotions, you can’t let it take you over the edge. I had two personal fouls and I guess I went a little too far,” Gholston said. “But you can’t play this game without emotion and love and passion. The more passionate you are, I feel like the better you play.” Most of the Spartans’ defensive plays were legal, and most of them were good. U-M took its first drive 80 yards for a touchdown, aided by a converted fake field goal, and got the fourthquarter touchdown pass. Other than that, the Wolverines gained 136 yards, converting just 3 of 15 third downs on the day. MSU collected seven sacks and 10 tackles for loss, after getting nine sacks and 13 tackles in a 10-7 win at Ohio State. “They’ve just got an attitude right now,” Narduzzi said of his defensive line,

thing we or I have accomplished here.” “Kirk Cousins, that guy is a machine,” defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi said. “You guys don’t give him enough credit, that guy is a football player. Kirk Cousins was on fire.” Cousins’ stats to the naked eye are pedestrian. He went 13-for-24 for 120 yards and two touchdowns, but he managed the game and avoided the turnovers that have plagued him through five games this season. “I thought he played very, very well,” MSU coach Mark Dantonio said. “He had a couple of drops and probably had only one errant pass. Maybe it was the first one. He played very well.” For the second consecutive game, the elements weren’t in a quarterback’s favor. Wind ripped across the playing surface for the entire afternoon, just as it did on Oct. 1 in Columbus. “It was very hard. In warm-ups it was tough trying to get a feel for the wind,” Cousins said. “The tough thing was that there was never a consistent wind where we knew what we were getting. It was blowing and swirling and it was hard to really understand where it was coming from, and I think you can attribute some of the drops to that because the ball was probably knuckling a little bit.” “I thought he was on the money with the wind conditions that were out there and it was blowing,” Dantonio said. In a game that packs as much emotion as Saturday’s, Cousins’ experience as a previous winner over the Wolverines also provided a guiding light for another triumph. “He does so many other things for us, beside just throw the football,” Dantonio said. “It’s the leadership. It’s on the field. “It’s getting us in the right place. He should be congratulated.”


MSU cornerback Johnny Adams sacks Michigan QB Denard Robinson on a fourth-down play in the fourth quarter. and the MSU offensive line showed some as well. It cleared the way for Edwin Baker, who lost one of MSU’s two fumbles, to run for a season high 167 yards on 26 carries. “We controlled the line of scrimmage and that’s how we won the game,” said MSU senior left guard Joel Foreman, who helped the Spartans win 213 to 82 on the ground, making it 39 of 42 times that the winner of that stat wins this contest. Kirk Cousins threw a pair of third-down touchdown passes to Keshawn Martin in the second half, helping him become the first MSU quarterback to win three straight against the Wolverines. It also gave him 21 wins as a starter, tied for the most in MSU history with Jeff Smoker. But Cousins was thinking more about his program’s streak against the program it most wants to beat. “You’re looking at three seniors here from the state of Michigan, and for the rest of our life, we will walk the streets in this state,” said an

emphatic Cousins, flanked at the podium by fellow captains Foreman and Trenton Robinson. “The rest of our life! That’s satisfying.” MSU 28, MICHIGAN 14 Michigan 7 0 0 7—14 Michigan St. 7 0 14 7—28 First quarter Mich—D.Robinson 15 run (Gibbons kick), 8:50. MSU—Baker 1 run (Conroy kick), 5:08.

GRAND LEDGE — Just four years ago, the Mason boys cross country team finished 32nd of 37 teams in the Greater Lansing Cross Country Championships. On Saturday at Ledge Meadows Golf Course, the Division 2 No. 1-ranked Bulldogs grabbed

four of the first nine places to cap a program resurgence that has seen them move up to 22nd place in 2008, ninth in 2009, second a year ago and now first for the first time since 1992. “Other than the state meet, this is one we circled and really

wanted to get as a team,” said Mason boys coach Charles Miller, whose team compiled just 42 points to second-place Haslett’s 81. “We hoped for this type of performance, but I’m a little surprised it wasn’t closer. We had a place on the course where we wanted to go after it — the guys did, and it worked well today.” Junior Tanner Hinkle surged ahead in the second mile to win the boys race by 14 seconds in a wind-slowed 3.1-mile time of 16 minutes, 6 seconds. Junior Alex Whitmer took fourth place, fresh-

Crash could end Johnson’s 5-Cup reign

Lions, 49ers in revival revelry

Reid Spencer Sporting News NASCAR Wire

CONCORD, N.C. — Matt Kenseth pulled away from Kyle Busch in an 12-lap run to end Saturday night’s Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and established himself as a serious player in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. It took Kenseth six laps after a restart on Lap 304of334to clearBusch through Turns 1 and 2. Kenseth p u l l e d away to a half-second lead before Kenseth Jimmie Johnson slammed nosefirst into the Turn 2 wall on Lap 315 in an accident that putaseriouscrimpinJohnson’s run at a sixth straight Cup championship. After a restart on Lap 323, Kenseth pulled away for his third win of the year and the 21st of his career. Busch was second, followed by Edwards, who expanded his lead in the Chase to five points over Kevin Harvick, who ran sixth. Johnson was 34th. A master of getting on and off pit road with utmostefficiency,Buschtook his first lead of the race during a round of greenflag stops just short of 200 laps. Trailing Tony Stewart by more than a second as he entered pit road, Busch gained three seconds on the No. 14 Chevrolet during the exchange of stops. By Lap 205 he was more than 2.5 seconds ahead of Stewart, but the winner of the first two Chase races began to chip away at Busch’s margin and cut it to 1.4 seconds as Busch worked traffic on Lap 217. But Kenseth surged past Stewart into the second spot and held it until another round of green-flag stops began on Lap 232. The fourth caution of the race interrupted that cycle when Trevor Bayne ran out of fuel and stopped on the backstretch. The inopportune yellow left only 14 cars on the lead lap for a restart on Lap 243, and Busch quickly opened a lead of more than a second over Kenseth, with Edwards and Greg Biffle in third and fourth. That’s the way the top four ran until the next cycle of green-flag stops began on Lap 279. Two laps after Biffle stopped — and before Busch, Kenseth or Edwards came to pit road — a caution skewed the runningorderagainonLap 287. All told, after wavearounds, 14 cars took the green flag on the lead lap for a restart on Lap 293, with Busch leading Kenseth, Kasey Kahne and Edwards to the stripe.

DETROIT — The Detroit Lions are determined to let the good times roll in the Motor City. The Lions (5-0) are off to their best start since 1956, the year before they won the NFL title, and they’re coming off quite a coming-out party. Detroit beat the Chicago Bears in its first Monday night g a m e since 2001 and firedup fans at Ford Field were so loud the v i s i t o r s Burleson had nine false starts, ratcheting up the buzz from coast to coast about the league’s former laughingstock. Today, the Lions and NFC North rival Green Bay stand alone as the NFL’s only unbeaten teams. “We’re kind of the darlings a little bit, we’re that good story,” Lions receiver Nate Burleson said. “But we haven’t accomplished anything. We have to continue to prove to people we’re a good team. “Everyone is going to have their opinion about who we’ve beat, so this is a great opportunity to play a club people respect.” Detroit hosts San Francisco (4-1) today. The NFC West-leading 49ers have perhaps been more surprising than the

IN BRIEF GOLF Thompson takes one-stroke lead ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. — Michael Thompson shot a 3-under 67 on Sunday to take a one-stroke lead over Billy Horschel in the McGladrey Classic, while Webb Simpson was two strokes back in his bid to win the PGA Tour money title. Thompson was 13 under on Sea Island’s Seaside Course. Horschel followed his opening 64s with a 70. Simpson shot a 69 to match Trevor Immelman (62) at 11 under. Simpson and top-ranked Luke Donald are vying for the money title and both will play next week in the season finale at Disney. Simpson trails Donald by $68,971, but could move into the top spot with a strong round today. Simpson also is looking for a tour-leading third win this year, which could make him the favorite for PGA Tour player of the year. » CHAMPIONS: At San Antonio, Fred Couples birdied six of the first seven holes and finished with a course-record 10-under 62 to take a seven-stroke lead in the Champions Tour’s AT&T Championship. Couples had 12 birdies — six in a backnine 30 — and a double bogey to reach 17 under at TPC San Antonio’s Canyons Course, the first-year venue after nine years at Oak Hills. » LPGA: At Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, South Korea’s Na Yeon Choi took a onestroke lead over Brittany Lang in the LPGA Malaysia, finishing off a 4-under 67 in fading light after a long rain delay. Choi birdied the par-3 15th and par-4 16th and closed with two pars to reach 12 under at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Lang, tied for the second-round lead with fellow American Stacy Lewis, birdied four of the last six holes — the last on the par-4 18th at dusk — for a 69. » EUROPEAN PGA: At Vilamoura, Portugal, Rafael Cabrera-Bello of Spain shot an 8-under 64 to take a one-stroke lead into the final round of the Portugal Masters.

TENNIS Murray, Ferrer reach Shanghai finals SHANGHAI — Andy Murray overpowered Japan’s Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-0 Saturday, setting up a Shanghai Masters final against David Ferrer and taking another step in his bid to pass Roger Federer in the rankings. Ferrer, ranked No. 5, struggled past fellow Spaniard Feliciano Lopez 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-3. It was the third straight match he has come back to win after losing the first set. Murray, the defending champion, has won 24 of his last 25 matches and is trying to capture his third tournament in three weeks. If he wins the title today, he will advance from No. 4 to No. 3 and overtake Federer in the rankings, a goal he had set for the end of the year. Federer made last year’s Shanghai final but skipped this year’s tournament to rest and recover from injuries. He hasn’t been ranked below No. 3 since June 2003 — just before he won his first Grand Slam at Wimbledon. Murray has been ranked as high as No. 2 but has never finished the year higher than No. 4. “It’s not the ultimate goal, but it’s a step in the right direction,” he said. — From wire reports



Avoid the banana curse T


OLEDO BEACH — The weatherman let us down again. The predication called for five mile an hour winds. The surface of Lake Erie told us it was at least triple that. But what are you going to do, eh? We were there. We went out. Ray Underwood, with whom I’ve chased walleyes on Erie for more than two decades now, had planned a yellow perch safari with a handful of buddies and invited me along. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse. But it became apparent almost immediately that it wasn’t going to be easy. We went to Underwood’s waypoint, where he’d left them 36 hours or so earlier, and they weren’t there. “Perch move around a lot,” said Underwood, who’ll soon start his ninth decade (and he’s spent a bunch of it fishing on Lake Erie, I might add) on earth. “The key is finding an area with a lot of bait in it and if there are a lot of minnows there, the perch will hang around a little while. We hope they hang around long enough to find our minnows.” We idled around until Underwood saw what looked like a stack of perch, then motored a little way upwind and had one of his buddies drop the anchor. It didn’t hold. We tried again. And again we were downwind of where we wanted to be in no time. We tried it again. This time it stuck. But the aft end of the boat was swinging like pendulum. Underwood deployed another anchor from the aft, but even that didn’t stop us completely. So we fished, baiting up with minnows and fishing on bottom. We were using perch spreaders — wire contraptions that held drop lines with hooks and small spinners off each side with a weight in the middle. Personally, I prefer to simply tie two hooks directly to the line — one just above a sinker, the other a foot or so

action was slow. Anglers were having a hard time finding minnows. Pier anglers targeting salmon reported slow catch rates. Kalamazoo River: Is producing salmon and a few walleye up near the Allegan Dam. Grand Haven: Anglers are catching chinook, coho, steelhead and lake trout. The better fishing was 20 to 70 feet down in 200 to 260 feet of water with orange spoons in the top water or blue and green deeper. Pier fishing is very slow as water temperatures were in the high 50s and low 60s. No perch to report. Grand River at Grand Rapids: Is producing good steelhead and brown trout action at the dam however this week could be the peak of the brown trout run. Chinook are still moving up into the river, but the coho action is winding down. Try spawn bags, spinners, or Hot-nTots. Good fishing off Fulton Street for those using a chrome and blue Hot-n-Tot with a red lip. Walleye were caught by those drifting crawlers or body baits. Riverside Park is giving up limit catches of crappie and bluegill, and Millennium Park is good for crappie, bluegill, pike and bass. Grand River at Lansing: Coho are still being caught at Moore’s Park and the point where the Grand meets the Red Cedar. Try spinners, spoons or spawn. Those fishing near the dam in Eaton Rapids are taking good numbers of smallmouth bass on golden shiners. Lake Ovid: Is producing panfish on wax worms, but the fish are running small. Morrison Lake: Panfish are hitting on red worms or wax worms in deeper water. Jordan Lake: Has good panfish action in deeper water. Muskegon: Boats are fishing out in 150 to 300 feet of water however the better fishing has been 20 to 70 feet down in 200 to 260 feet of water. Orange spoons were taking the fish up high while blue and green were the colors in deeper water. There has been no pier activity. Muskegon Lake: Has good walleye action. Most are slow trolling with an electric motor while drifting (hash)11 or (hash)12 husky jerks, rapalas or reef runners. Muskegon River: Walleye have been caught in the Croton Dam Pond and in the Hardy Dam Pond. Anglers are bouncing spoons or jigging rapalas off the bottom. Whitehall: Boat anglers are targeting salmon 60 to 90 feet down in waters 180 to 200 feet deep. Steelhead were caught 30 to 40 feet down.

Anglers in boats on Saginaw Bay have found the search for perch excellent, but it’s still too early for the popular fish to enter rivers, cuts and marina basins, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Numbers of trout and salmon look good and the coming colder weather should improve prospects for anglers fishing along shorelines. SOUTHEAST LOWER PENINSULA Lake Erie: Some perch were caught between the Dumping Grounds and Stony Point in 18 to 25 feet of water. A few hot spots were straight out from Sterling State Park or a mile northeast of the River Raisin in 24 feet of water. Anglers are seeing lots of perch, but will need to sort out the small ones. Those fishing the Hot Pond did very well for catfish and largemouth bass. Huron River: Water levels need to come up and water temperatures need to go down so steelhead will move into the river. A few fish were taken early or late. Those fishing the backwaters caught crappie and bluegill. Detroit River: Perch were still hitting on rigs with shiner minnows. For walleye, try jigging around Celeron and Sugar Island. Bass are still being caught. Lexington: Shore and pier anglers are starting to get some perch inside the harbor. Those putting in the time will end up with enough for a meal after sorting out the small ones. Trout and salmon are cruising in the harbor, but will not bite. Port Sanilac: Is also producing perch for pier and shore anglers. Trout and salmon are in the harbor, but will not bite. Harbor Beach: Those die-hard trollers found salmon hitting in 150 to 175 feet of water. Perch were caught on minnows inside the harbor. Grindstone City: Pier and shore anglers are starting to catch some perch. Port Austin: Is also producing some perch for pier and shore anglers. Saginaw Bay: If you haven’t put your boat away, now is the time to get some perch. Anglers from Linwood to Bay Port were converging to the middle of Saginaw Bay. Good to excellent catches of 7- to 9-inch fish were taken in the vicinity of Buoys 1 and 2, 16 and 17 or 11 and 12; and just south of the Black Hole in 17 to 21 feet of water. A few perch were caught near the mouth of the Saginaw River. Bass anglers launching at Bay Port did very well for smallmouth around North Island and the Charity Islands. Saginaw River: A few walleye were caught below the bridges in Bay City when fishing jigs and twister tails at night. SOUTHWEST LOWER PENINSULA St. Joseph: Fishing for all species is very slow. Boat anglers are struggling to find clear water. There are no perch being caught by boat or pier anglers. The water is still turbid from the last round of storms and visibility is not what it should be. South Haven: Fishing is slow and boat anglers are struggling to find clear water. A few perch were caught but the fish are small and the

TOKYO — Kohei Uchimura spun off the pommel horse and smiled as he pulled himself upright. Hey, he and the American women can’t win every gold medal at the world gymnastics championships. McKayla Maroney gave the Americans a sweep of the first three gold medals at worlds by winning t h e vault title Saturday, and Uchimura took gold on floor exercise about 18 hours after becoming the first man to win three allaround titles. “It just shows we are the best,” Maroney said. “We come for business and that’s what we want to do.” But other gymnasts do, too, and Uchimura and the Americans were nice enough to let them share in the loot, failing to win any more medals — let alone more gold — the rest of the day. DeWitt’sJordynWieber was fourth on uneven bars, missing the bronze medal by about three-tenths of a point, and Gabby Douglas was fifth. Uchimura finished fifth on pommel horse after a fall and was sixth on still rings. But there’s more heavy metal to be had today, and chances are good Uchimura and the Americans will get some of it. Wieber and Aly Raisman are both competing on balance beam and floor exercise, while Uchimura still has parallel bars and high bar to go. The Americans got off to a perfect start at worlds, winning the team title followed two days later by Wieber’s victory in the all-around.

NORTHEAST LOWER PENINSULA Rogers City: Is full of baitfish and they are everywhere from shallow waters all the way out to 120 feet. Fish caught were full small alewife and smelt. Try small spoons about halfway down in waters 50 to 80 feet deep. Blue, green, gray, white and black were good colors. Steelhead were caught high in the water column with downriggers and lead core. Orange and silver or bright pink were good colors. Those fishing off the wall caught the occasional salmon or brown trout when casting spoons or body baits. There is still plenty of good fishing out on the big lake and the fish look nice and healthy. Alpena: A few anglers in the bay were targeting walleye, but no fish were caught. Thunder Bay River: Most of the activity has been at the Ninth Street Dam where anglers

have caught chinook and the occasional steelhead. No brown trout to report. A few perch were caught in the marina. Harrisville: Salmon are still coming into the harbor and the fish are bright silver. Early morning and late evening were best when using spawn or spoons. The warm weather has the fish moving in and heading back out. Shore and boat anglers seem to be having the same amount of luck with most fish caught inside the harbor. A few walleye were also caught, but more fish will show up as soon as the water temperatures start to drop. Higgins Lake: Perch fishing was good out from Big Creek and west of the main island in 30 to 40 feet of water. Lake trout have been caught at the north end of the lake when jigging or trolling. Oscoda: Salmon are starting to make their way up into the river and the fish look good and healthy. A few boats have been out but those fishing around the mouth of the river caught fish on spoons and body baits. Au Sable River: Most of the fish have been caught up near Whirlpool, High Banks and Foot Dam. The fish that have made it up to the dam are turning dark. Spawn, spoons and flies seem to be the most productive. If the sun is out the fish are shutting down, but they bite all day if it is overcast. There were reports of steelhead caught by those floating spawn. Try the deeper holes up around High Banks and the Boy Scout Camp. Look for more steelhead to show up later in the month. Tawas: Pier anglers can catch enough decent sized perch for dinner if you’re willing to sort out the small ones. A couple walleye and chinook salmon were also caught off the pier at night. Tawas River: Several chinook salmon have been caught at the mouth. Au Gres: Had excellent perch fishing out near the shipping channel between Pointe Au Gres and Point Lookout in 30 to 40 feet of water. Everyone caught fish and some reported limit catches. The perch ranged six to nine inches with some up to 12. Smallmouth bass anglers did well when casting around the Charity Islands. Perch anglers off the Eagle Bay Marina did well in the Catfish Hole in 18 feet of water. Au Gres River: Several salmon and steelhead were caught near the mouth of Whitney Drain when casting or floating spawn bags. NORTHWEST LOWER PENINSULA Petoskey: Look for steelhead action to start picking up inside the pier and around the mouth of the river in the next few weeks. Bear River: Anglers can find plenty of salmon in the river and down near the mouth. A cold front coming to the area by the end of the week should fill the river up one more time before the salmon run starts to wind down. Charlevoix: Salmon fishing is coming to an end as most of the fish are now spawning in the rivers. Perch action should start picking up in the next few weeks. Pine River: Had fair to good smallmouth bass fishing. Traverse City: Perch and whitefish have been caught in the East Bay. For perch, try still-fishing with minnows or worms. For whitefish, try jigging in waters up to 100 feet deep. Bass anglers caught a few fish. Associated Press

Spartans fall to Lakers Lansing State Journal

SAULT STE. MARIE, — The Michigan State hockey team’s comeback fell short on Saturday as it suffered a 3-2 loss to Lake Superior State. Jake Chelios and Greg Wolfe had the goals for the Spartans, who fell behind 3-0 early. Drew Palmisano made 23 saves, including 12 in the final period. Colin Campbell had a pair of first-period goals to give Lake Superior State the lead. Nick McPartland gave the Lakers a 3-0 lead less than two minutes into the middle period. The Spartans got on the board at the 10:52 mark when Chelios scored. Wolfe scored in the closing seconds of the third to pull MSU within one. With 5.6 seconds remaining, the teams lined up for the center-ice faceoff. The Lakers won the draw, sending it deep into their offensive zone to seal the victory and the series sweep. “They had an open net on a couple of their goals, because of some breakdowns,” MSU coach Tom Anastos said. “They were easy putbacks, and LSSU was opportunistic. We are having breakdowns, they lead to goals. We continue to make untimely mistakes, and we’re paying for them. We are going to keep working to get better. “Their size was a bit of a factor for sure — we’re not really a big team, either. But we have to figure out ways to get to the net and have more scoring chances, too.” MSU will host Ohio State at 7 p.m. Thursday at Munn Arena.

He was in Jacksonville last week, then took this weekend off to attend the Michigan vs. Michigan State game. Next Sunday he’ll be at Ford Field when the Lions host the Atlanta Falcons. Look played both in the AFL as a quarterback with the New York Titans and also with the Chicago

White Sox until injuries ended both careers prematurely. He played running back and quarterback for the Spartans from 1957-59 and was a part of two wins and a tie against the Wolverines. Look’s 92-yard punt return for a touchdown in the 1958 game helped the Spartans escape with a 12-12 tie in Spartan Stadium and it is still the second longest MSU punt return on record behind Al Brenner’s 95-yard romp against Illinois in 1966. ••• Unfavorable changes: Ron Mason sure hates to see what has happened to college hockey.

Whether her Spartans can climb on the national stage beyond their reigning Big Ten regular-season championship remains to be seen. But MSU women’s basketball emerged to rank second in Big Ten home attendance last season and the program has now posted eight consecutive seasons of at least 20 wins. Reaching last season’s 27-6 mark might be tough considering the loss of three key seniors, leaving three seniors on the current roster. Lykendra Johnson is in that group and she has made an All-Big Ten team her ďŹ rst three years on campus. She became a mother this summer and how that affects her play, if at all, may well determine whether the Spartans repeat as league title holders again.

In the girls race, Bulldogs freshman Meg Darmofal (19:05) held off St. Johns freshman Karrigan Smith (19:07) and St. Louis junior Raquel Serna (19:11) for the victory. “I just wanted to stay behind the front people and pass them up at the end,â€? Darmofal said. “After the last turn, I sprinted.â€? Darmofal, who also plays soccer for TNT Dynamite in the fall and hopes to compete in both soccer and track for Mason next spring, won the Greater Lansing Junior Cross Country Championships the past two years as a seventh and eighth grader. Smith came in third place a year ago. “It gave me conďŹ dence thatIhavebeatenherbefore, but I was kind of nervous because I missed Portage (Invitational) last weekend when I was sick with the u,â€? Darmofal said. “The wind got to me at the end, especially because there were no trees to block it,â€? Smith said. Yet Smith was a lot closer to Darmofal than the 21-second margin a year ago in the annual 2-mile meet for sixth through eighth graders, which will be held on Monday at DeWitt High School. “My work has paid off over the summer and this season,â€? Smith said. “But I could not have done it without my team or coach or family.â€? DeWitt edged Division 1 honorable mention Grand

Haslett’s boys, ranked sixth in Division 2, edged fourth-ranked Ionia by 14 points and Division 3 second-ranked Lansing Catholic by 18 points for second place. “It’s such a close race that when one team slips a little bit, somebody moves up,â€? Haslett coach Nick Stanko said. “It’s good that there’s that much competition in the area.â€? Lansing Catholic senior Zachary Zingsheim (16:20) edged Haslett senior Alex VanCamp (16:22) and Whitmer (16:24) for individual boys runner-up. “VanCamp had a bit of tendonitis at the beginning of the season,â€? Stanko said. “It just took a little while to get his ďŹ tness back up. We just took our time, and he’s just getting back into form now.â€? Hinkle sensed the group that contained those three who ran the ďŹ rst mile right behind him were trying to use him as a shield from the wind. “They were right with me at the mile, so I wanted to get away from them,â€? he said. “The second mile, I just wanted to push.â€? Hinkle was especially pleased after taking eighth a year ago when he was among the individual favorites. “Last year, I didn’t run as well as I wanted to,â€? he said. “So this year, I was trying to redeem myself.â€? Both Hinkle and Darmofal became the ďŹ rst runners from Mason to win Greater Lansing meet individual titles. “All of the best teams and all of the best runners from the area are here,â€? Hinkle said. “So if you can win, it’s a big deal.â€?

OAKLAND — Okemos sophomore Elle Nichols shot a ďŹ nal-round 80 to hang on to win the Division 2 girls state individual championship on Saturday at KatkeCousins Golf Course. Nichols’ two-day total of 157 was just enough to edge East Lansing’s Kristyn Crippen. Crippen also shot an 80 on Saturday. “I had a lot of fun. It was a lot different than what I’ve ever had to play in,â€? Nichols said. “But it was windy for everyone, and every round was different.â€?

They had a lot of bad breaks.â€? It was the ďŹ rst state title for Nichols, who ďŹ nished ďŹ fth at last year’s state tournament.


Okemos’ Elle Nichols won the Division 2 state girls golf tournament on Saturday. “She had a great year,â€?

ergized,themen’steamsent the crowd into frenzy. Like most years, Izzo made his grand entrance in style. This year’s theme was the 1986 movie “Top Gunâ€? — an homage to the Spartans’ opening game with North Carolina on Nov. 11 at the Carrier Classic on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson in San Diego. Izzo, through the magic of the green screen, â€œďŹ‚ewâ€? a ďŹ ghter plane in the introduction ďŹ lm while pretending to be “Maverick,â€? then entered the arena in a miniature ďŹ ghter jet. Fans then got their ďŹ rst look at this year’s incoming freshman, which includes guards Brenden Dawson, Brandon Kearney and Travis Trice. Fans also got a look at redshirt senior guard Brandon Wood, who transferred to MSU from Valparaiso for his ďŹ nal year of eligibility. Both the men’s and women’s teams split into Green and White squads and played 10-minute intrasquad scrimmages to conclude the night.


Branden Dawson lays the ball in over teammate Russell Byrd during MSU’s scrimmage Friday night. Plenty of former Spartans were in the crowd, including current Los Angles Lakers guard Shannon Brown, Mateen Cleaves, Drew Neitzel and Andre Hudson to name a few. Even though the night was all about basketball, Izzo made it clear that the MSU football team had the stage for the weekend. “I hope and pray that we understand, we have the best coach, not only in the Big Ten, but the country,� Izzo said. “Make sure we give him a big round of applause.�

Others can describe it. Grosse Ile simultaneously won the Div. 3 championship across the street at Forest Akers West, and coach Jim Bennett said he was very happy his school’s enrollment increased last winter so the team was bumped up one division — thus avoiding Lansing Catholic. Grosse Ile won the 2009 state title and was runner up to the Cougars last season. “For us it was great, because we got away from Lansing Catholic, which is the best team in the state, by far,� Bennett said. Lansing Catholic totaled 653, Flint Powers was at 716 and Kalamazoo Hackett posted 725 for

third place. Fourth-year coach Mary Schafer said the team has not lost a match or invitational the past two years, which she said was “just unheard of.â€? “The conditions today were just so tough, and to shoot anything below 80 was just outstanding,â€? Schafer said. “I’m just so proud of the way they played. It was just a ďŹ ght out there. This team has embraced the fact that 100 yards and in is where it’s at (for scoring). “I’m blessed with talent,â€? Schafer continued. “But you’re not always blessed with hard workers. You’re not always blessed with good people and good students. I just have an incredible group. “They don’t realize how specialthiswinisuntilmaybe after they graduate.â€?

A franchise that began as the expansion Washington Senators and moved to Texas in 1972 had failed to reach the World Series in its ďŹ rst 49 seasons. Then the Rangers won their ďŹ rst AL pennant last year only to lose the Series to the San Francisco Giants in ďŹ ve games. “As soon as the season began, we were hungry, we were hungry to get back,â€?

MILWAUKEE — Shaun Marcum thinks people really want to see two aces face off in Game 7 with the NL pennant on the line. He can go a long way to forcing that matchup with a strong effort today. Marcum will get the ball for Milwaukee when it faces Edwin Jackson and St. Louis in the league championship series,withtheBrewerstrailing 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. If the Brewers win, Yovani Gallardo would pitch against Chris Carpenter on Monday night. “I think I’m on the bandwagon with everybody in here, probably everybody in the country that wants to see Yo versus Carp in Game 7,� Marcum said. “I’m going to try to get the ball to Yo.� This series has been more about what comes next on the mound.

pen is 2-0 with a 1.66 ERA in 212/3 innings over the ďŹ rst ďŹ ve games. Manager Tony La Russa has made 23 pitching changes using all eight of his relievers. “Players decide, pitchers decide who plays,â€? La Russa said. “We’re all basically reading basically the same. ... Edwin’s going to decide how far he goes. It depends on how he’s pitching. I don’t go in thinking let’s get 51/3 from him. I don’t think anything. I just watch the game.â€? Cardinals closer Jason Motte said La Russa is deecting credit he deserves for this series. “He knows how to push the right buttons. You can say what you want, but it’s

LSU rolls to victory over Vols The Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Jarrett Lee threw two touchdown passes, and Spencer Ware caught one and ran for another score for LSU in its 38-7 victory over Tennessee. Morris Claiborne’s 89-yard interception return set up Lee’s 5-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle for a 7-0 lead with 14:56 in the second quarter. The Tigers (7-0, 4-0) started their next drive on the Vols 36, and Ware took a screen pass from Lee 13 yards for another score. Lee finished 10 of 14 for 115 yards, Jordan Jefferson had 73 yards rushing and a touchdown on 14 carries. Making is first start of the season for the injured Tyler Bray, Matt Simms was 6 of 20 for 128 yards and two interceptions for Tennessee (3-3, 0-3).

NO. 2 ALABAMA 52, MISSISSIPPI 7: At Oxford, Miss., Alabama’s Trent Richardson now has his signature Heisman highlight. The Crimson Tide’s bullish back set career marks with 183 yards rushing and four touchdowns and destroyed Mississippi’s defense with a

76-yard touchdown run that displayed both his uncommon power and speed in a 52-7 win Saturday night. “I don’t think it’s the best (game), but it’s a good one, and hopefully there’s going to be more to come,” Richardson said. The junior and Jalston Fowler, who had his own big scoring run from 69 yards out, pushed the Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 SEC) to 389 rushing yards in an offensive performance that was only slightly more impressive than Alabama’s defensive effort. No. 6 OKLAHOMA STATE 38, No. 22 TEXAS 26: At Austin Texas, Jeremy Smith ran for 140 yards and scored on two long touchdown runs and Oklahoma State won for the second straight season at Texas. Smith went 30 and 74 yards for scores and Justin Gilbert returned the third quarter kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. Gilbert tied the Oklahoma State (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) school record for career kickoff TD returns with four. Fozzy Whittaker had a 100-yard touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff for Texas (4-2, 1-2).

the ground and the Cavaliers beat Georgia Tech at its own game. The Cavaliers (4-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) sealed the victory by holding onto the ball for the final 6 minutes, making five first downs to get inside the Yellow Jackets’ 5. Georgia Tech (6-1, 3-1), off to its best start since 1966, came in with one of the nation’s top offenses, but it was held to just two pass completions and a season-low 296 yards. NO. 15 SOUTH CAROLINA 14, MISSISSIPPI STATE 12: At

Starkville, Miss., Alshon Jeffrey caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Connor Shaw with 3:50 left in the fourth quarter for the Gamecocks. In his third career start, Shaw struggled for South Carolina (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference). Shaw completed 21 of 31 passes for 160 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. South Carolina’s Marcus Lattimore came into the game averaging an SEC-best 129.8 rushing yards per game, but only managed 39 against the hard-hitting Bulldogs. He left

the game in the fourth quarter with an leg injury. Coach Steve Spurrier said it was a sprained knee, though a full evaluation hadn’t been done. NO. 21 TEXAS A&M 55, NO. 20 BAYLOR 28: At College Station, Texas, Ryan Tannehill threw for 415 yards and a career-high six touchdown passes and Ryan Swope caught four scores for Texas A&M. Baylor’s Robert Griffin III threw for a school-record 430 yards and three touchdowns. Griffin is the third quarterback this season to set a school record against the Aggies’ worst-in-the-nation pass defense. Texas A&M (4-2, 2-1 Big 12), has won three in a row over the Bears and the loss leaves Baylor (4-2, 1-2) without a win against its longtime rival at Kyle Field since 1984. The Bears may not get another chance for some time with the Aggies leaving for the Southeastern Conference in July. No. 24 AUBURN 17, FLORIDA 6: At Auburn, Ala., Onterio McCalebb opened the fourth quarter with a 14-yard touchdown run, Ikeem Means recovered a muffed punt late and No. 24 Auburn beat Florida 17-6 in a defensive game that saw seven players take snaps at quarterback.

Buckeyes rebound vs. Illini Ohio State throws just four passes in win over Illinois The Associated Press

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — After riding a 6-0 record to a spot atop the Big Ten Leaders division, all No. 16 Illinois lacked was a win over an elite program to get some national buzz going. Against Ohio State — Big Ten royalty even in a year when the Buckeyes have more NCAA player suspensions than wins — everything seemed set. Daniel Herron and the Buckeye defense had other ideas. Herron ran for 114 yards in his first game back from NCAA suspensions and the Buckeyes (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) forced three turnovers — two of them setting up the Buckeyes’ only touchdowns — in a 17-7 upset of the Illini (6-1, 2-1). “We beat ourselves,” said defensive end Whitney Mercilus, who had nine tackles and 1.5 sacks, giving him 10 for the season. “We made a few too many mistakes, which they capitalized on.” Still stuck under the NCAA cloud hanging over Ohio State and desperate for a way to end a two-game losing streak, interim coach Luke Fickell drew up a game plan that was about as conservative as it gets. True freshman quarterback Braxton Miller threw just four passes, while Herron carried the ball 23 times and punched in the third-quarter touchdown that was the game winner. “It was hard staying at home and watching the games,” said Herron, who missed the season’s first six games. “Now that I’m back out here, I’m doing everything I can to help this team, be a leader and get some more wins.” The Buckeyes didn’t throw their first pass until the 7:22 mark of the second quarter. Miller, in fact, didn’t complete a pass until he hit tight end Jake Stoneburner on a 17-yard TD pass with 13:06 left in

I just want to enjoy this one.” » IOWA 41, NORTHWESTERN 31: James Vandenberg threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns as Iowa beat Northwestern 41-31 on Saturday

MOUNT PLEASANT — Alex Gillett scored on a 30-yard run with 37 seconds left, and Eastern Michigan beat Central Michigan 35-28 on Saturday despite blowing a late 15-point lead. Central Michigan (2-5, 1-2 Mid-American Conference) had tied the game at 28 when Ryan Radcliff hit Jerry Harris with a 2-yard

SAN FRANCISCO (4-1) AT DETROIT (5-0) The Niners won both of their road games and are a late blown lead against Dallas from also being unbeaten. They are buying into rookie coach Jim Harbaugh’s approach, and it showed in particular with a huge comeback win at Philadelphia, then a rout of Tampa Bay at Candlestick Park. A very good sign for Detroit was how it didn’t play lights-out football on Monday night against Chicago and still won. How San Francisco’s ball-hawking pass defense deals with Calvin Johnson could be the key.

Lions Continued From 3D

no-longer-lowly Lions this season and are coming off a 45-point win over Tampa Bay. It’s their most-lopsided victory since routing Denver by the same margin in the 1990 Super Bowl. First-year coach Jim Harbaugh has quickly changed the culture within a once-proud franchise, hoping to have its first winning season and playoff appearance since 2002. The former Michigan quarterback, who was mentioned as a candidate when Rich Rodriguez was fired and Brady Hoke was hired in January, is winning with a lot of the same players who opened last year with five losses and finished with a 6-10 record. Harbaugh motivates and relates and his obsession with the game is rubbing off on his players. San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith said Harbaugh has “everything” to do with the team’s turnaround. “The great thing around here is that it seems like it is all football,

all the time,” Smith said. “I mean that in the greatest way.” No one has described the Lions or 49ers as great in a long time. Detroit hasn’t been an NFL powerhouse since the pre-Super Bowl era of the 1950s when it won three titles in a six-season span. The Lions have one playoff victory since their last championship and had the NFL’s first 0-16 season three years ago, sinking to rock bottom in what was the worst string of futility in the league since World War II. San Francisco has a richer and more recent history of success, winning five Super Bowls from the 1981 to 1994 seasons and missing the playoffs only four times over a two-plus decade reign. Since 2002, though, the 49ers are 29 games under .500 with four double-digit losing seasons. But as a handful of teams do each year in the NFL, Detroit and San Francisco are enjoying quick turnarounds. The Lions and 49ers are a combined 9-1 a year after they were 1-9 at the same time.

Detroit’s opponents this season have found receiver Calvin Johnson nearly impossible to stop. Johnson is the first NFL player to catch nine touchdown passes in his first five games and he’s coming off the first game in which he was held to one score. Burleson said teams are trying to slow him down with “The Randy Moss Defense,” with a cornerback trying to press him at the line with a safety providing deep help — even if there’s not a tight end or slot receiver on the same side of the field. With so many eyes on Johnson, running back Jahvid Best took advantage of some holes to run for 163 yards — more than doubling his previous career high — and his 88-yard sprint against Chicago was the second-longest run in Lions history. Best, a former California Bear and native of Vallejo, Calif., is extra motivated to put together another strong performance. “I grew up a Raider fan,” Best said. “So, definitely my eyes are set on San Francisco this week because it’s a team I grew up hating.”

OT goal lifts Wings, 3-2 Franzen scores game-winner against Wild The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Johan Franzen scored a powerplay goal with 48.5 seconds left in overtime, rallying the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. Ian White and Jiri Hudler also scored for Detroit, which trailed 2-0 in the second period. After a scramble in front of the Wild net, Tomas Holmstrom backhanded a short pass and Franzen fought off a check and poked it in. The play was upheld by video review. It was Detroit’s first power-play goal in 19 chances this season. Detroit is off to its first 4-0 start since 1997-98, a season that ended with the Red Wings hoisting the Stanley Cup. The Red Wings won a team-best six in a row to begin the 1972-73 season. Greg Zanon and Cal Clutterbuck scored for Minnesota, which was outshot 41-14. Zanon gave Minnesota a 1-0 lead with 11.3 seconds left in the opening period beating Jimmy Howard, who was screened, with a slap shot from the top of the slot. It was Zanon’s first goal in 136 gamesdatingtoDec.12,2009. AccordingtoEliasSportsBureau, Zanon had the secondlongest goal-less drought in the league. Mattias Ohlund

of Tampa Bay is scoreless in 141 straight games. It was also the first goal allowed by Detroit in 140 minutes, 13 seconds dating back to opening night. Clutterbuck gave the

Wild a 2-0 lead 16 seconds into the second period, onetiming a feed from Colton Gilles past Howard. Gilles took the puck away from a Red Wings defenseman behind the net, cut back to the right and saw Clutterbuck coming down the slot alone. Detroit controlled play throughout the middle period, and finally beat Harding with 47.7 seconds left when White picked up a loose puck in the left circle, cut across the crease and beat Harding low on the glove side. The goal came about 75 seconds after Pavel Datsyuk fired wide on 2-on-none breakaway. Hudler scored at 3:46 of the third period, tipping in a shot from Jakub Kindl. It was the first start since March 26, 2010, at Detroit for Harding. He left that game with a hip/labrum injury to end his season. But things got worse six months later when he tore two ligaments in a preseason game that forced him to miss all of last season. He didn’t need to make any spectacular saves, but was fundamentally sound throughout, moving side-toside, squaring up against shooters and controlling rebounds.

Don’t expect much elbow room on flights this fall. With the busy summer travel season over, airlines are cutting seats available in the United States by about 2 percent this fall.


Flying is becoming more crowded and costly CAPITAL REGION INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, LANSING

Scott Mayerowitz The Associated Press

Don’t expect much elbow room on flights this fall and heading into the busy holiday season. Planes have never been so full. There was barely a spare seat this summer and the next few months should be the same. To the list of things airlines have taken away — hot meals, blankets, headphones — you can add personal space. For airlines and the people who invest in them, it makes sense. Because of consolidation, partnerships and a push to eliminate unprofitable routes, airlines can adjust schedules to match demand and charge more. But customer comfort is an afterthought. Not to mention space in the overhead bin. “There are some days on some flights when there are simply no physical seats left,” said Jim Reichart, vice president of marketing and sales for Frontier Airlines Inc., which sold 91 percent of its seats in July and August. Frontier and US Airways Group Inc. had their best August for percentage of seats filled. The impact can be felt locally, too. Delta Air Lines Inc. cut back on the number of landings at Capital Region International Airport, yet more passengers are flying Delta in and out of Lansing. The airline’s landings in Lansing dropped 5 percent this year through August, but Delta’s passenger traffic grew 10 percent during the same period. “I know that the Delta flights are very busy,” said Robert Selig, executive director for the Capital Region Airport Authority that oversees the airport.

Direct flights to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic begin on Dec. 23, and service to Montego Bay, Jamaica starts on Christmas Day. The service runs through April. The Mendota Heights, Minn.based airline dropped its seasonal service to Las Vegas and Fort Myers, Fla. that was offered last year, but added Punta Cana and increased the number of flights to Orlando. “With Punta Cana being added to the schedule, we’re expecting that Christmas 2011 through Memorial Day (2012) will be our best holiday schedule ever,” said Robert Selig, executive director for the Capital Region Airport Authority that oversees the airport. The airport recently hosted a Fly Lansing Travel Extravaganza, where interested travelers could meet with representatives from Sun Country, travel agents, resorts and tourism bureaus. This year is shaping up better than 2010. Through August, 244,486 passengers flew in and out of Lansing, up nearly 45 percent from the same period last year. Sun Country contributed to the bump by starting nonstop flights to Washington, D.C., and Minneapolis in April. Delta, the largest carrier at the airport, later added a second daily flight to Minneapolis.

DETROIT — CEO Dan Akerson’s patriotism led him to seek a position on General Motors Co.’s board and has driven his first year at the automaker’s helm. During GM’s recent negotiations with the UAW, the Republican and former U.S. Navy officer endorsed the union’s desire to add American jobs. “We are not a jobs bank. We are not an extension of the federal government. But we are an American company,” Akerson told the Free Press in his first on-the-record discussion as CEO with a newspaper’s editorial board. Since he took over in September 2010, Akerson has launched GM’s public stock offering and its flagship Chevrolet Volt electric car. He capped off his first year with a four-year UAW contract that adds more than 6,400 U.S. jobs, but more could be around the corner.

New UAW contract Akerson envisions a GM that, after decades of subpar small cars, likely will soon need more U.S.-built Chevrolet Cruze compacts and, he hopes, more Chevy Sonic subcompacts. More production, and potentially more jobs, could come in Orion Township or Spring Hill, Tenn., he said — and, “if need be,” in Mexico. Akerson, 62, became GM’s CEO in September 2010 after a career in telecommunications and private equity. Here are excerpts from his discussion: “I tried to establish a relationship with (UAW President) Bob King and (Vice President) Joe Ashton ... I thought that if we met frequently, got to know each other on a personal level and expressed what our

goals were, so we could identify areas of potential conflict, we could potentially avoid them. “I was reviewed in the Washington Post as, ‘This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about.’ I said that we had to have our compensation aligned with business objectives. And my statement was, ‘If we do well as a company, then the union should share in our prosperity.’ They’re members of the team. They may be represented, but they’re members of the GM family. And we got that.

Future labor costs “I didn’t want to see any structural increases, that if things turn down in this turbulent world, that they should be getting raises when management’s not getting anything. I wanted a quality component to their compensation because it’s a component of management’s compensation. And I thought that was enlightened on Bob King’s and Joe Ashton’s perspective to accept that.

Sparrow CEO weighs in on costs of care

Airlines Continued From 1E

The figures shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who fought over an armrest this summer. With 130 million people flying, little perks such as empty middle seats or flying standby were hard to come by.

63-year-old has spent 30 years with provider

Money key, not ego Airline executives used to add flights and routes to protect market share. This often meant there were more seats than travelers. “In the past we had the problem of people operating airlines based on ego,” said airline consultant Michael Boyd. “Now, they’re operating on the basis on how much money they can make.” Overall, 86.4 percent of seats were filled by paying customers in July and August, according to an Associated Press analysis of preliminary data reported by 16 major U.S. airlines. That edges last summer’s record of 86.3 percent. Add in seats occupied by off-duty airline staff, who often fly free, and passengers who redeemed frequent-flier miles, and there was hardly any room this summer. Analysts say there may be more space this fall, but not much, if the economy slows further. Either way, flights around Thanksgiving and Christmas will be packed. And fuller flights anytime mean you’re less likely to get a seat if your flight is canceled. Airlines generally lose money on empty seats because they already are paying for fuel, pilots and flight attendants. But how many seats are filled is only one factor in airline profitability. Airlines have to make enough money from fares and fees to cover fuel and labor costs.

Fewer seats All the major airlines except AMR Corp.’s American have made money this year. United, part of the newly formed United Continental Holdings Inc., charged about 8 percent more for each seat in July than last year and 11 percent more in August. Until 1978, regulation limited airline competition, allowing them to make money even when planes weren’t full. In more recent years, technology has allowed airlines to routinely schedule

Sun Country is resuming its seasonal service on Dec. 21 with nonstop flights from Lansing to Cancun, Mexico and Orlando. Direct flights to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic begin on Dec. 23, and service to Montego Bay, Jamaica starts on Christmas.

AMTRAK STATION, EAST LANSING » Destinations: The Blue Water Route stops in East Lansing on its way between Chicago and Port Huron. It stops in eight other cities in Michigan. » Holiday outlook: The passenger rail service set a new record when it surpassed 30 million riders nationwide in the fiscal year that ended in September, said spokesman Steve Kulm. About 66,700 passengers boarded or got off trains at the East Lansing station during the fiscal year that ended in September. That’s up

14 percent from 2010, and nearly 31 percent from 2009. Overall, Amtrak said, 187,065 passengers used the Blue Water Line in fiscal 2011. “We expect that strong ridership to continue into the holiday season,” he said. Amtrak sometimes runs additional trains or adds more cars to existing trains to keep up with holiday demand, Kulm said. He did not have details on the company’s plans for the Blue Water route.

Analysts say there may be more space this fall, but not much, if the economy slows further. Either way, flights around Thanksgiving and Christmas will be packed. And fuller flights anytime mean you’re less likely to get a seat if your flight is canceled. full flights — and cutthroat competition has forced them to. In the early 1970s, before airlines were deregulated, about half of seats were sold. In the first decade after deregulation, airlines sold about 60 percent of seats. That number slowly increased over the decades. In 2008, faced with high fuel costs and falling demand in a recession, airlines ended hundreds of money-losing flights. With the summer travel season over, airlines are cutting seats available in the U.S. by about 2 percent this fall, according to Barclays Capital. Lucrative international flights, which make up a smaller number of airline routes, will increase by

3.5 percent to 5 percent.

Higher costs Recently, major U.S. airlines said they would limit available seats, most likely by cutting more flights. That could reduce the airlines’ costs while driving up ticket prices. Airline stocks rose. Planes on Allegiant Air, a carrier operated by Allegiant Traveo Co. that flies vacationers to tourist destinations, were 93 percent full this summer. This fall, it plans to reduce the available seats by almost onethird, said Jude Bricker, the airline’s treasurer. Lansing State Journal business writer Melissa Anders contributed to this report.

That represents a loss of about 189 flights and more than 10,000 seats, said airport spokesman Scott Wintner. Much of that is due to Delta’s move this summer to cut down on small-business travel flights. But Delta, the largest carrier at Metro, is starting some of its seasonal service earlier this year. It will fly to vacation destinations such as Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, Mexico; and Grand Cayman for the holiday season. Last year, those flights were limited to the spring break period, Wintner said. — Individual airport and Amtrak information compiled by staff writer Melissa Anders. *Some airlines use smaller commuter carriers for flights. For example, Delta and United serve the Lansing airport with planes flown under the Delta Connection and United Express names, while American’s American Eagle unit operates routes in Flint, Grand Rapids and some in Detroit.

Hacking clouds online banking Eve Mitchell MCT News Service

J.T. Pierce’s bank is right next to his Foster City, Calif., workplace. But Pierce hardly ever visits the branch because he uses online banking to take care of most of his banking needs. “I’ve been banking online since college,” said the 26-year-old San Francisco resident. “As soon as I was able to open an account online, I pretty much jumped on it. The No. 1 reason is convenience.” But while he likes the convenience, he takes the

time to change his password every few months. Such precautions — which also include installing security software to protect against viruses, spyware and malware — have become second nature for many people who bank online on a computer. But people often are not as protective when using smartphones for online banking. Of course, no matter how careful a consumer is, hackers can still compromise online security. You have to look no further than the data breach in August at the website that exposed the passwords and

other personal information of more than 2,400 BART riders. Sony’s PlayStation website also was hacked earlier this year. Such break-ins are all the more reason that security experts stress the importance of not using the same password to access different websites. “Unfortunately, many people do that,” said Jon Fox, consumer advocate for CALPIRG, a San Franciscobased consumer group. “You put everything at risk. So having different passwords for different websites is common-sense advice.”

Online banking is becoming more and more popular with consumers as a way to check statements and pay bills. Two out of three consumers surveyed said they had an online banking session in the past seven days, said a report released in July by Pleasanton, Calif.based Javelin Strategy & Research. Security software that can protect against viruses, spyware and malware should be part of online banking security measures, whether you are using a computer or smartphone for online banking, experts advise.

Social Security pushing ‘Go Direct’ effort


he U.S. Treasury is doing whatever it can now to convince those who still receive Social Security benefits via paper checks to give up that paper and opt for something else. Several business and community partners in Michigan are helping make that ramped-up, “Go Direct” case. Some bank and credit union branches also feature “Go Direct” brochures that encourage people to opt for electronic payments and not delay. The theory is to have someone in addition to the Treasury make the pitch to seniors, people with disabilities and others still receiving 256,000 Social Security and Supplemental Security Income paper checks each month in Michigan. “They’re hearing about it from a trusted voice in their community,” said Walt Henderson, director

of electronic funds transfer for the U.S. Treasury. But will people give up paper Social SeUSAN curity OMPOR checks more than Personal finance a year before they’re going to be required to do so? No one will be able to get a paper check for Social Security benefits as of March 1, 2013, unless they qualify for a very limited waiver. While many seniors and others have time to opt for electronic payments, though, the U.S. Treasury would prefer that they not drag their feet. “We are focused on getting people to take action now,” said Walt Henderson, director of electronic funds transfer


at the U.S. Treasury. “If you have a lot of people who procrastinate, it’s a bit more hectic to meet the deadline.” It may not be easy for some to change their habits, but they’re going to receive plenty of encouragement. There’s a “Go Direct” call center: (800) 333-1795. There’s a website: www.Go . Every now and then, you might even see a bus go by with an ad suggesting “Go Direct.” Baby-boomer retirees and others who sign up for Social Security benefits now already are forced to deal with a no-paper mandate; they must use direct deposit or receive Social Security benefits via a government-issued debit card. But the older retirees and others could still be getting paper checks. Recipients of Social Security and Supplemental Security Income still rely

on more than 7.5 million paper check payments each month — which represents about 12 percent of total monthly payments. Social Security benefit recipients in Michigan and 13 other states are receiving notices about “Go Direct” along with regular checks. The Treasury has two alternatives: » Sign up for direct deposit so benefits can be electronically deposited into your account at your bank or credit union. » Sign up for the Direct Express Debit MasterCard. Comerica is the financial agent for the card. If people do not make a choice by that March 2013 deadline or when they apply for federal benefits, they will receive payments via the Direct Express card. Susan Tompor is the personal finance columnist at the Detroit Free Press.

At age 63, Dennis Swan said he has to come up with polite responses when people question why he hasn’t retired yet. “Frankly, I can’t believe I’d really do anything else,” said Swan, president and CEO of Sparrow Health System. He’s been with the Lansing health care provider for 30 years. But he didn’t grow up aspiring for a career in health care. “I don’t like blood and I don’t like body fluids, when you get right down to it. I admit that to every new associate that w o r k s t h e r e . They think that’s pretty funny,” he said. But Swan seems to enjoy his job overseeing caregivers. “I have a profound respect for people who have the knowledge, training, ability, licensure and the courage to really be a first respondertosomebodywho has a physical problem, injury or illness,” he said. » What is Sparrow’s response to the issue of rising health care costs? “We’re constantly reminding ourselves that the nation’s health care system has got to be reformed, got to do something about it, but Sparrow also has to move away from volumebased reimbursement. It’s really key.” » You have a proposal in to add Memorial Healthcare in Owosso to your group of affiliate hospitals. Are you looking to continue expanding your footprint? “We definitely are. Today, more and more hospitals are in that spot, the fork in the road, and they’re saying that ‘For us to continue, an affiliation just may make more sense, whether it’s recruitment of physicians, whether it’s access to capital, whether it’s electronic medical record systems or whatever, that we’d be better off working together than working separately.’ ” » Sparrow’s nurses au-

thorized a strike during labor negotiations last year, but a walkout was avoided when the contract was ratified. How is Sparrow’s relationship with its nurses now? “Collective bargaining sometimes is sort of like the sausage-making business. It’s really sometimes not very pretty. “There was a little bit more of that in that particular year than there should have been. We immediately met afterwards and said: ‘OK, are we through with all that process?’ Because the reality is we really appreciate and value the people that are there.” » Sparrow in April announced a new tobacco test for potential hires. How is the new process going? “So far, I’m surprised it hasn’t been more controversial. It really has gone pretty well. We just ask people to identify whether they’re nicotine users. If they are, we’d rather have them reapply at a future date when they’re not. “We really believe longterm, it’s the kind of thing that we need to do to make a statement about how important we think health is.” » How has the economy impacted the amount of uncompensated care you provide? “We have care that we classify as the community benefit care. We have certain requirements there and guidelines that allow us to deeply discount or wholly discount. “But then you also have self-pay individuals, people who do not have health insurance for whatever reason and believe that they’re OK and they’re going to try to pay, and what happens is they find out ultimately that it’s much more serious economic blow ... there has been an increase in uncompensated care.”

Got the 401(k) blues? A reprieve is coming Gail MarksJarvis MCT News Service

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no other way to say this. If you are about to open the mail youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just received from your 401(k), college fund or broker, you are probably going to be disgusted with what you see. The last couple of months in the stock market were awful, so any mutual fund with stocks in it will look horrible for the third quarter of this year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the three-month period that ended Sept. 30. If your stock mutual fund is like the average, you probably lost about 17 percent of the money you had in it when the quarter started in July, according to Lipper, a ďŹ rm that tracks how funds perform.

And your losses might be even worse than 17 percent. If you have a mutual fund that invests in small companies, you probably lost more than 21 percent. If you have an international fund that invests in companies around the world, you are probably down more than 20 percent. And if you were among the people who got excited about tremendous growth in areas like China, Brazil and India, you are probably going to wonder why people think those areas are so hot. Emerging market funds that invest in China or Latin America destroyed more than 25 percent of the money people had in them. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any consolation, you should know that as of now, your losses probably arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

quite as bad as they look on paper. After the end of the third quarter, the Dow Jones industrial average climbed about 8 percent into the ďŹ rst couple of weeks of October. The recent gain in the stock market didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t erase your losses entirely, but it helped. Now you might be down about 10 percent. But at least the reprieve demonstrated a critical point â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that stocks donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay down forever and that losses do ease with time. Whether that time is now is not clear. Some analysts think we are in a bear market. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a period of about six months or more when stocks fall 20 percent or more. The good news is that if we are in that type of market, a lot of the damage has already been done.

Occupy Wall Street p efforts rooted by peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrations


hen I ďŹ rst watched the Occupy Wall Street rallies in New York and around the country, I wondered if folks carrying signs, camping out, holding up trafďŹ c and boycotting ďŹ nancial institutions could really make a difference. The jaded part of me didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the protesters could accomplish much other than some media coverage. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a clear leader for the movement. Their demands werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speciďŹ c enough. Yet, the Occupy Wall Street campaign isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t abating, and for good reason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The protests represent peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustration in dealing with big government, poliICHELLE tics and big corporations INGLETARY that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t The Color providing jobs, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t of Money listening to Personal us and who ďŹ nance singletarym@ are nickeland-diming us,â&#x20AC;? said Ed Mierzwinski, the consumer program director for the U.S. Public Interest Research Group. Although some have criticized the movement for its lack of leadership and clear agenda, the protests do have a purpose, said Kalle Lasn, editor-and-chief of Adbusters magazine. It was the Vancouverbased anti-consumerist magazine that spurred the Occupy Wall Street campaign. It urged people to show up on Wall Street starting Sept. 17 and set up tents, kitchens and peaceful barricades and stay for a few months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This movement at the moment is all about being angry and having rage,â&#x20AC;? Lasn said in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But in the next few weeks, as it is grows, it will become clear itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a positive program about political and social change.â&#x20AC;? Lasn said he hopes the next big protest will happen Oct. 29. The magazine is encouraging people to stage protects in state capitals in the U.S. and


abroad the weekend before the next G-20 summit. The summit, a gathering of ďŹ nance ministers and central bank governors from the 20 largest economies, is meeting in France Nov. 3-4. Lasn said one demand protesters can unite behind is a global ďŹ nancial transaction levy dubbed the Robin Hood tax, which is intended to make the ďŹ nancial sector contribute to ďŹ xing the economic crisis it helped create. Throughout history, great change has evolved from small civil protests. It took a Rosa Parks, who refused to give up her seat on a public bus to a white man, to inspire the Montgomery, Ala., bus boycott that eventually resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that segregation was unconstitutional. Go even further back to the origins of the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;boycottâ&#x20AC;? and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ nd the story of Irish tenant farmers who got tired of being taken advantage of by rich landowners. Charles C. Boycott, an English estate manager in Ireland, found himself in the middle of a game-changing protest. Despite a poor harvest, Boycott had refused to lower rents for the farmers. So, local laborers in turn refused to work the land Boycott was managing. Leading that protest was Charles Parnell, an Irish politician, who fought for the rights of the tenant farmers. Parnell advocated peaceful protest, one in which workers ostracized the people behind unfair business practices. Are you fed up? If so, you can ďŹ nd local Occupy Wall Street events at Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no longer jaded. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited that those most hurt by the dismal economy are marching, picketing and raising ruckus against the ďŹ nancial sector that has morphed into too-big-tofail institutions that gave little thought to how their actions could wreak havoc in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives.

Expert: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be underestimated


ever assume everyone is smarter than you are. Even if they are four-star generals.â&#x20AC;? This was one of the messages delivered by Teri Takai at a recent meeting of Lansingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Athena WIN organization. Takai, a presidential appointee and Michigan native, is chief information ofďŹ cer at the U.S. PATTY Department of MCCARTHY Defense. With a & PAULA BLANCHARDresume that STONE includes informa- McCarthytion tech- Blanchard executive nology leadership training ďŹ rm positions at Ford Motor Co., EDS and Federal-Mogul Corp., as well as state government positions with former Govs. Jennifer Granholm in Michigan and Arnold Schwarzenegger in California, Takai knows how to swim with sharks. Here is some of the great advice she shared with Athena Win attendees: Âť Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t underestimate, or undersell yourself. Know and go with your strengths. At the Defense Department, Takaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibilities encompass IT strategic planning and reform, including streamlining operations, partnering with private industry

to share best practices and cybersecurity. Working side-by-side with four-star generals to support US troops can be daunting. But when you work from your strengths â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in Teriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, a solid IT knowledge base, a track record of success and a global network of IT experts and colleagues â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can stand your ground with conďŹ dence. The ďŹ rst year in every new job is the toughest. Takai said she has found this to be true at the Pentagon and in business. A selfdescribed workaholic, Teri has earned her stripes in every position she has held. Her advice for Year One after work smart and hard? Act conďŹ dent, with more conďŹ dence than perhaps you feel. Âť Recognize and be open to opportunity. Takai never sought or envisioned herself in public service. In fact, during an initial interview, she asked an astounded DoD leader, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why would you hire me?â&#x20AC;? When Takai walks into the Pentagon each day, she says is in awe of the responsibility of her ofďŹ ce, the bright, dedicated people she works with and the distance her career has taken her. Âť Stay close to the boss, whoever that is. Make yourself indispensable to his or her success.

Tax preparers now must prove competency to IRS David Ranii MCT News Service

In the wake of studies that found that tax returns ďŹ led by paid preparers can be riddled with mistakes, the Internal Revenue Service is clamping down on the industry. Up to now, paid tax preparers in the vast majority of states were free to hold themselves out as experts without any training whatsoever. Nor did they have to prove competency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The person who cuts your hair generally has to have a license where he or she operates and has to undergo basic testing and qualiďŹ cation procedures before doing so,â&#x20AC;? said David Williams, director of the IRSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return preparer ofďŹ ce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How is it that the individual who has access to perhaps

your most signiďŹ cant set of ďŹ nancial transactions during the course of any given year has no requirements for competency or oversight at all?â&#x20AC;? Hence the changes. First up, beginning next month, the IRS is rolling out competency tests for hundreds of thousands of tax preparers nationwide. Next year, continuing education requirements â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 15 hours worth per year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; kick in. Industry executives are divided over whether the cost of complying with the new requirements will trigger price increases for consumers. But the de rigueur complaints about excessive regulation are noticeably absent in this instance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The industry has been very unregulated in the past,â&#x20AC;? said Brandon Britt, who owns four Liberty Tax Ser-

vice franchises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think a certain amount of regulation is good.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been clear to me that some reform has been needed in the form of better policing,â&#x20AC;? said Lacy Tinnen, owner of eight Jackson Hewitt franchises in North Carolina. A six-month IRS review of the tax preparation industry found â&#x20AC;&#x153;near unanimityâ&#x20AC;? among the public and industry ofďŹ cials that more industry oversight was needed, said Williams. The resulting report found that 90 percent of those who commented were in favor of minimum education or testing requirements. The tax preparer industry sees the IRS actions as a way of improving overall competency and leveling the playing ďŹ eld in an intensely competitive industry.

Toyota, Honda are losing speed to compact rivals Automakers closing the gap in small cars Terry Box


MCT News Service

BMW’s X3 is excellent in mileage and breaks the mold with good looks and a “sweet price,” according to auto critic Mark Phelan.

A year ago, no one could touch the kings of compact cars, the venerable Toyota Corolla and feisty Honda Civic. The small cars from Japanese automakes Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co. Ltd. so far above the more prosaic vehicles in the segment that they were automatic choices for most consumers. But the segment today — reshaped by intense competition, growing fuel economy considerations and a devastating earthquake — looks little like it did in 2010. Although the Corolla remains the best-selling car in the segment, the new Chevrolet Cruze, from Detroit’s General Motors Co., has pushed its way into second place.

BMW X3 offers luxury at an affordable price T

he words, “Hey, that’s a good price,” seldom occur to me when I test a new BMW. The new 2011 X3 xDrive 35i broke the mold. First, it delighted me with BMW’s hallmark style, efficiency, power and handling. Then it surprised me with a sweet price. And, yes, its controls occasionally made me curse and shake my head. Prices for the new BMW X3 xDrive start at $36,750 for the 28i model. It has a normally aspirated, 240-horsepower MARK 3.0-liter straight-six PHELAN engine. All Auto critic X3s have phelan@ BMW’s per- formancetuned xDrive all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 35i adds a turbocharger to crank power to 300 horsepower. It stickers at $41,050. I tested a well-equipped X3 xDrive 35i that cost $52,140. Features on the X3 I tested included parking assist, backup camera, navigation system, Bluetooth compatibility for phones and music players, and a large sunroof. The X3 35i’s EPA rating

“I also wanted to facilitate their agenda to bring jobs to America. ... It’s not a commitment, hard and firm. If there were a deep recession, then we have to — but clearly, we look at our production plans around the world and the cadence of new product introductions, and we thought it made sense.

GM’s workforce “Increasing the number of tier-two workers is important in relative terms. “We’ve got to feather this in. It can’t be a flash cut — that wouldn’t be fair to our employees. But over time,

The 2011 BMW X3 xDrive35i offers style, efficiency, power and handling — at a good price. of 21 mpg in combined city and highway driving beat all the competitors handily. The smooth and fast-shifting eight-speed contributes significantly to the X3’s impressive fuel economy acceleration. BMW’s 3.0-liter straight-six engine is one of the auto industry’s great powerplants. The turbocharged version generates 300 pound-feet of torque from 1,300 rpm to 5,000 rpm, producing power for acceleration at all speeds. The X3 has a smooth, comfortable ride. Wind noise is minimal. The sport utility vehicle’s near 50/50 weight distribution contributes to excellent handling and road holding. Adjustable sport settings reset the engine, transmission, steering and elec-

tronic controls for quicker response. The 2011 X3 is longer, wider and taller than the previous model. The cabin has plenty of passenger room and a useful 27.6 cubic feet for cargo behind the rear seat. Unusual for a BMW, the front seat has plenty of storage cubbies for glasses, iPods, phones, chargers, etc. The materials in the leather-upholstered X3 I tested looked and felt good, with tasteful wood and soft-touch surfaces. The gauges are large and legible. BMW’s signature iDrive rotary control manages many systems. I think a touch screen would be simpler and easier, but BMW continues to improve iDrive.

we’ve got to feather this in and have a comparable cost of labor with transplants in the U.S., or else we’re not going to be competitive. “There has to be some trust on both sides of the table. We’re not trying to hurt anybody. We’re trying to stay strong. So over time, as part of the labor contract, we would buy out some of our more senior employees and some of the skilled trades. ... “We’ll get there, but we don’t need to be punishing. We need to recognize that our employees have a right to a certain set of expectations, and we will be competitive over time. ... “We have a great business franchise and footprint, not only from a manufacturing but a distri-

bution standpoint, that will be tough to overcome. I’d hate to play against us.


Community Pride & Commitment

Cruze in 2nd place TheCruzeissellingatthe rate of 21,000 cars a month and growing. The Civic has dropped to No. 3, according to Automotive News. “Honda and Toyota’s dominance is fading, and both face formidable competition from the domestics and Koreans,” said Jesse Toprak, vice president of industry trends at “They’ve never seen that before.” As inventory-limited Japanese brands drop, Focus from Dearborn’s Ford Motor Co. and Elantra from


The Toyota Corolla, shown here in a 2010 model, is facing challenges to its compact car dominance. South Korea’s Hyundai Motor Corp. also are on the rise. Through August, for instance, the Elantra’s sales were up 46.8 percent, according to Automotive News. Toyota, Honda and fellow Japaense rival Subaru suffered substantial damage to their factories after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March, and all still lack inventory. Even before the earthquake, the Corolla and Civic looked vulnerable, some analysts said. Though most analysts expect Toyota and Honda to fight back hard when they have full supplies of cars, they doubt that either will dominate the segment again. “This is beyond the tsunami and earthquake,” said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director of “The competition is catching up. The Japanese brands are still really good, but the Koreans and domestics are better than ever.” Toyota, meanwhile, believes the Corolla will

re-establish its leadership position once inventories are back to normal. “While other models may make short-term inroads, there is no way they can match Corolla’s 40-plus year history of providing high-value, high-quality vehicles,” said Mary Legallet, Corolla product manager.

Big segment The compact segment is the largest in the newcar industry but typically generates the lowest profit, analysts say. For years, it attracted mostly young buyers with limited income or retirees looking to downsize. Domestic automakers largely ignored it when pickups and sport utility vehicles were hot, relying on trucks for most of their revenue. But now everyone in the industry faces daunting new fuel-economy standards beginning in 2016, and compacts will be crucial to automakers’ efforts to meet those rules, which demand an average of 54.5 mpg by 2025.

2009 bankruptcy

“As perverse as this will sound to you, the bankruptcy may be, in retrospect, a blessing. Going into bankruptcy, we had over $40 billion of debt. Today, we have over $40 billion of liquidity. ... People feel proud to be part of GM. Not that they weren’t, but they were kind of tentative, and you can understand the difficulty this company went through for many years. It was kind of a no-win situation. “And I don’t think it’s as perverse as I painted it, but I think in retrospect, people will say, ‘You know, we had to go through that kind of really bad period.’”
