Wreck results in injury
Owner of local historic home says restoration isn’t over yet
By Lydia Beers Staff Writer
PLYMOUTH — If you’ve passed by the beautiful but slightly battered old home on Lake Avenue recently, you might have noticed that the place has a new roof. That’s because owner Andrew Sporner is still working on his plan to restore the home to its original glory. “This is definitely not going to be a case of blight — the house will be taken care of,” said Sporner, adding that the building needed a lot of work when he bought it in 2010. Now that the roof has been replaced, Sporner’s next steps will be to renovate the bathrooms, kitchen, and floors in the house. Sporner, a Plymouth native who’s lived and worked in Germany for the past 12 years, said he’s hired local contractor Al Eisenhour to work on the house while Sporner himself remains in Germany. He originally planned to move back to Plymouth in 2014 but that might happen a little later, said Sporner. “I’ve been (in Germany) for 12 years and I’m actually getting tired of it,” said Sporner. “I’m at that age where I want to go home and (this house) represents home to me.” Sporner is a business software consultant and he’s considering using the front part of the historic home for his business and living in the rest of the building. “I’m going to keep the whole house as a residence,” said Sporner. “The front parlor is accessible without going into the house, and I might use that area as a consulting office.” Arguably the most interesting part of Sporner’s property is the two

PLYMOUTH - Marshall County Sheriff’s officers were called to a crash on S.R. 17 Thursday morning that sent a mohnter and her threeyear-old daughter to the hospital. Karis Olson, 28 of Plymouth was eastbound on 14B Rd. E of SR 17 when she lost control of her vehicle cresting a hill. She collided with a tree in the east bound shoulder. Both she and her daughter were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
Underage drinking party busted
underground rooms nearby. They were used to ferment beer from a local brewery in the late 19th century. Sporner said he’s received many suggestions on what to do with the underground rooms, including opening a restaurant, operating an organic vegetable store, and starting a microbrewery. Shortly after purchasing the home, Sporner worked with the Wythougan Valley Preservation Council to add it to the National Historic Register of HIstoric Places. It’s the only home in Plymouth to be on this list. The historical value of the building is important to Sporner, and he said none of his planned renovations will compromise that. “I’m not going to ruin (the house),” said Sporner. “I’m not going to change the appearance of it, except to change the outdoor porch to make it more like the original style. I want to bring (the house) back to what it was, really, in its very beginning.” He added that in restoring the interior, his goal is to use materials that would have been found in a home in the 19th century. “I’ll have modern appliances though,” said Sporner, adding jokingly, “I won’t have a wood stove or icebox.” So far, Sporner has spent about $40,000 on repairs. “It’s a project house,” said Sporner. “I realize that people aren’t seeing a lot of progress right now and that probably creates some questions. (The changes being made) are not something you can see by looking at the house but there is investment going into it. One of the last things people will see happen are the cosmetic things.” Sporner noted that he is also considering making the house into a bed and breakfast. Nothing’s for sure until the repairs are completed, but Sporner emphasized that he hasn’t abandoned the project.
PLYMOUTH - Marshall County Sheriff’s made multiple arrests at an underage drinking party. Sheriff’s deputies were called to the 9000 block of Sycamore Rd. around 12:44 a.m. Feb. 24 with reports of an underage drinking party in progress. Officers that arrived at the residence found 21 persons under the age of 21 in possession of drinking alcohol.
Mobile meth lab shut down
PLYMOUTH - Plymouth Police were able to shut down a mobile meth lab at Oak and Jefferson on Thursday. Plymouth Patrolman John Weir made a traffic stop at the corner and took into custody Roy A. Atkins, 35, of Plymouth and Trudi A. Atkins, 32, of Plymouth. Speaking to the driver Weir had a strong smell of chemicals coming from the vehicles interior. After the Atkins were taken out of the vehicle an active meth lab was found in the back seat along with other meth related materials. Both suspects were transported to the Marshall County Jail.
Vatican takes first steps running pope-less church
VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican took the first steps of governing a Catholic Church without a pope on Friday, making some ceremonial and practical moves to formalize the end of one pontificate and prepare for the conclave to start the next. Benedict XVI’s 8 p.m. resignation Thursday opened what is known as the “sede vacante” or “vacant see” — the transition period between papacies when a few key Vatican officials take charge of running the church. The dean of the College of Cardinals formally summoned his fellow “princes” of the church to Rome for an initial pre-conclave meeting on Monday — something of a formality given that many of them are already here. But in a letter Friday, Cardinal Angelo Sodano also made clear that the conclave date won’t be set until they have all arrived, meaning it may still be some time before a date is settled on. Separately, the deputy to the camerlengo — who administers the Vatican during the transition — took symbolic possession of one of the papal basilicas in Rome. For obvious reasons, the camerlengo will not take possession of the main papal residence outside Rome — Castel Gandolfo — since that is Benedict’s current retirement home. In one of his last acts as pope, Benedict loosened the rules on the timeframe for the camerlengo to take possession of papal holdings, precisely to allow him to live out his first few months in retirement in what is an official papal residence. Here are the top figures who will run the church in the coming days: THE CAMERLENGO: Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone. The camerlengo, or chamberlain, takes over the dayto-day running the Holy See as soon as the papacy ends.
Office hours Weekdays 8-5 936-3101 1-800-933-0356 Sports: 936-3104
He places the seal on the pope’s study and bedroom, and takes possession of the Apostolic Palace, “safeguarding and administering the goods and temporal rights of the Holy See” until a new pope is elected. On Thursday night, Bertone sealed the papal apartment, which will not be reopened until a new pope is elected. Benedict in 2007 gave the camerlengo job to Bertone, 78, a natural choice, given that Bertone is currently the Vatican No. 2 as secretary of state and runs the Vatican bureaucracy anyway. A priest of the Salesian order, Bertone was trained as a canon lawyer and taught in various Roman universities for several years before coming to work for the former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger at the Vatican’s doctrine office in 1995. As secretary of state, Bertone has had Benedict’s unwavering trust, but his legacy has been mixed. He had no diplomatic training coming into the Holy See’s most important diplomatic and administrative post, and critics blame the gaffes of Benedict’s papacy and the current state of the Vatican’s dysfunction on Bertone’s managerial shortcomings. The 2012 leaks of papal documents appeared aimed at undermining his authority further, by exposing the power struggles and turf battles that festered under his watch. In his last speech as pope, however, Benedict singled Bertone out for thanks. THE DEAN OF THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS: Cardinal Angelo Sodano. The dean is the senior member of the College of Cardinals, the so-called “princes” of the church whose main task is to elect a pope. The dean oversees the pre-conclave meetings, at which the problems of the church are discussed, and has duties inside the conclave itself, including asking the newly elected pontiff if he accepts the job. But Sodano is
85 and cannot vote, so some of those duties will shift to the sub-dean. Burly and sociable, the Italian Sodano was Pope John Paul II’s longtime secretary of state. As dean, he spoke on behalf of all the cardinals in giving a final farewell to Benedict on Thursday, thanking him for his “selfless service.” Still, Sodano and Benedict were known to have clashed when Benedict was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, particularly over the scandal-plagued Legion of Christ religious order. Sodano was a chief backer and protector of the Legion’s late founder, the Rev. Marcial Maciel, even though the Vatican had known for years of solid allegations that he was sexually molesting his seminarians. Within Benedict’s first year in office, Maciel was sentenced by the Vatican to a lifetime of penance and prayers for his crimes. That same year Benedict named Bertone to replace the retiring Sodano as secretary of state. THE MASTER OF LITURGICAL CEREMONIES: Monsignor Guido Marini. The master of liturgical ceremonies runs the religious side of the conclave and the installation Mass for the new pope, all of them carefully choreographed rituals. He is by the side of the dean when the newly elected pope is asked if he accepts the election. And as the main witness and notary, he draws up the formal document certifying the new pope’s name and that he has accepted the job. Benedict appointed Marini to the job in 2007, replacing Monsignor Piero Marini who for two decades was Pope John Paul II’s right-hand man for all things liturgical. The shift was intentional. Under Guido Marini, papal Masses became far more reverent, with more Latin, Gregorian chants and the use of heavy silk-brocaded vestments of the

DHS released more than 2,000 immigrants
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Homeland Security Department released from its jails more than 2,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation in recent weeks due to looming budget cuts and planned to release 3,000 more during March, The Associated Press has learned. The newly disclosed figures, cited in internal budget documents reviewed by the AP, are significantly higher than the “few hundred” illegal immigrants the Obama administration acknowledged this week had been released under the budget-savings process. The government documents show that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement released roughly 1,000 illegal immigrants from its jails around the U.S. each week since at least Feb. 15. The agency’s field offices have reported more than 2,000 immigrants released before intense criticism this week led to a temporary shutdown of the plan, according to the documents. The states where immigrants were released include Arizona, California, Georgia and Texas. The White House has said it was not consulted about the releases, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has acknowledged they occurred in a manner she regrets. White House spokesman Jay Carney on Wednesday said the government had released “a few hundred” of the roughly 30,000 illegal immigrants held in federal detention pending deportation proceedings. Carney said the immigrants released were “low-risk, noncriminal detainees,” and the decision was made by career ICE officials. As of last week, the agency held an average daily population of 30,733 in its jails. The internal budget documents reviewed by the AP show the Obama administration had intended to reduce those figures to 25,748 by March 31. The White House did not comment immediately Friday on the higher number of immigrants released. ICE spokesman Brian Hale said Friday the numbers of immigration detainees fluctuate daily, but he reiterated only several hundred illegal immigrants had been released. “Beyond that normal movement, and as fiscal uncertainty remains over the continuing resolution and possible sequestration, ICE reviewed its detained population to ensure detention levels stay within ICE’s current budget and placed several hundred individuals on methods of supervision less costly than detention,” Hale said in a statement. “At this point, we don’t anticipate additional releases, but that could change.” The immigrants who were released still eventually face deportation and are required to appear for upcoming court hearings. But they are no longer confined in immigration jails, where advocacy experts say they cost about $164 per day per person. Immigrants who are granted supervised release — with conditions that can include mandatory check-ins, home visits and GPS devices — cost the government from 30 cents to $14 a day, according to the National Immigration Forum, a group that advocates on behalf of immigrants. The release of thousands from immigration jails is consistent with Napolitano’s early warnings on Monday — hours before anyone knew publicly that any illegal immigrants had been released — that the pending, automatic budget cuts known as the sequester would limit the government’s ability to maintain enough detention center beds for at least 34,000 immigrants. “We’re doing our very best to minimize the impacts of sequester, but there’s only so much I can do,” Napolitano said Monday. “You know, I’m supposed to have 34,000 detention beds for immigration. How do I pay for those?” Late Thursday, after intense criticism over what the administration acknowledged was the release this week of several hundred immigrants, Napolitano told ABC News that she had been surprised to learn about the action. “Detainee populations and how that is managed back and forth is really handled by career officials in the field,” Napolitano told ABC. “Do I wish that this all hadn’t been done all of a sudden and so that people weren’t surprised by it? Of course.” The announcement that a few hundred illegal immigrants were being released was among the most significant and direct implications described so far by the automatic budget cuts. Republicans in Congress quickly criticized the decision and pressed the Homeland Security Department for details, including the number of illegal immigrants released and the nature of any criminal charges they were facing as part of the deportation process. “Simply blaming budget reductions as a means to turn a blind eye toward the national security of the American people is a dangerous plan, and one that calls into question the department’s preparations for sequestration,” wrote two Republican lawmakers, Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa and Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

Police in one Minnesota town set up shop in schools
JORDAN, Minn. (AP) — One small-town Minnesota school district is taking a unique approach to keeping students safe: The police are moving in. In Jordan, south of Minneapolis, officials looking at school security after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut decided the police would set up satellite offices in public schools. Officers will conduct some of their daily work from the schools, including taking calls and filling out paperwork, while still going out into the community to patrol or respond to emergencies. The hope is the armed officers, with their squad cars in school parking lots, will discourage — or meet — any would-be attackers. Jordan schools haven’t had an attack or a problem with violence. But the plan proposed by the police chief received unanimous approval from the City Council and the school board, and it seems to have the backing of parents and school administrators. “Sandy Hook had everything in place security-wise, they really did. But what they didn’t have was a trained, armed officer at the front door,” said Jordan Elementary School Principal Stacy DeCorsey. “We will have that the majority of the time.” Schools across the U.S. have been looking at security after the attack at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 children and six workers dead. The National Rifle Association called for putting armed guards in schools. President Barack Obama proposed more funding for counselors and school resource officers, whose primary assignment is to work in schools. Some districts hired retired officers. One Colorado district asked officers to write reports from their squad cars in school parking lots. Many schools already have police officers assigned as resource officers to promote community programs, and some of them have offices in schools. But Jordan’s idea to relocate its city police duties to a school is unusual. Police and school officials acknowledge the idea might not work for larger communities. But they believe it could make a big difference for this town of about 5,600 people that’s about a 45 minute drive from Minneapolis. The district has about 1,800 students and all of its school buildings are on one campus. “These attacks have been going on for years and still no one has provided any hope of relief,” Chief Bob Malz wrote in a Dec. 27 letter to school officials. “Sometimes the best answers come when we stop listening to everyone else and take it upon ourselves to make common sense decisions based on what is right for the safety of our children in our own community. ... It’s time for change.” The Jordan police force is small, with eight full-time officers, including Malz, and four part-timers. Malz said the move means the officers’ presence at the schools will increase, and he estimated at least one officer would be on the campus most of the time, cutting response time in an emergency from roughly four minutes to 30 to 60 seconds. Officials at the middle and elementary schools cleaned out storage areas near their main entrances and installed windows that give a view of the entries. One officer will make the elementary school his home base, and two officers will split time at the middle school office. At the high school, the principal is giving up her office by the front door for the police chief. The hope is to have the officers in place by early April. The school district is paying the estimated $20,000 for modifications that include bulletproof windows. Much of the furniture was donated. Administrators say an overwhelming majority of feedback from parents has been positive. “I think it’s phenomenal that they took steps to put everyone at ease after what happened with Newtown,” said Jen Sims, who has children in kindergarten and first-grade. “And it’s even better that Jordan, a small community, came up with the idea. ... I’m glad to know that the school cares about student safety.” Schoolchildren won’t be exposed to the rougher elements that can be part of a police station. People filing complaints or meeting with an officer would go to the main (and previously only) police station, where the department will still have administrative workers. Officers will conduct interrogations and meet with victims at the main office, not schools. The office is at City Hall, less than a mile from the school campus, so it’s easy for officers to go back and forth. Mo Canady, executive director of the National Association of School Resource Officers, said time will tell if the plan is a good idea, but it’s at least worth a try. Francisco Negron, general counsel for the National School Boards Association, said police and the district should work out when, and to what extent, officers should get involved in situations that arise at the schools. DeCorsey said she’s already instructed teachers that police should be asked to handle a situation only if it’s serious enough to call 911. Lacey Sand, who has a first-grader and a preschooler at Jordan Elementary School, said she and her husband support the effort. “Before Sandy Hook, I don’t think any parent could have braced themselves for this,” she said. “After Sandy Hook, you know, it’s just something that now is a part of our lives and that we have to be prepared for. And Jordan is preparing us for that — and thank God for that.”

Purdue University freezes tuition for 2 years
Pope, cont. from A1
pre-Vatican II church. In changes introduced just before he resigned, Benedict made clear he wanted this more traditional vision of his papacy carried forward for the installation of a new pope. He called for the rites of installation to be separate from the liturgy itself and for the cardinals to make a public pledge of obedience to the new pope during the Mass. Previously, their pledge of obedience was done in private in the Sistine Chapel immediately after the election. In keeping with Benedict’s classical musical tastes, the new rites also allow for more flexibility in musical choices rather than the modern selections previously in favor. The aim, Marini recently told the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, is to make “the most of the rich musical repertoire of church history.” THE PROTO-DEACON: Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran. The proto-deacon’s main task is to announce to the world that a pope has been elected. He shouts “Habemus Papam!” (“We have a pope!”) from the balcony overlooking St. Peter’s Square after the white smoke has snaked up from the Sistine Chapel chimney. He then introduces the new pope —
WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — Purdue University is freezing its tuition costs for the next two years in response to the nation’s lingering weak economy. The freeze announced Friday means the cost of basic instate tuition at Purdue will remain about $10,000 until the end of the 2014-15 school year. Purdue President Mitch Daniels said in a statement that
“in this period of national economic stagnation, it’s time for us to hit the pause button on tuition increases.” He says Purdue’s students and their families “deserve a high-value education that they can afford.” The Journal & Courier reports that under the freeze, the current base tuition for Indiana and out-of-state students on the West Lafayette campus will remain unchanged for two years.
in Latin — along with the name the pope has chosen. The French-born Tauran is a veteran Vatican diplomat who served in the Dominican Republic and Lebanon. He currently heads the Vatican’s office for interreligious dialogue — in other words the Vatican’s primary point man for Catholic-Muslim relations. Benedict appointed him protodeacon in 2011.

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” — A.A. Milne We all have our own methods of organizing our lives. Some people don’t plan at all and some make a plan to plan. I like to think of myself as an organized person, but recently I’ve noticed that my organization goes only so far. For example, “to-do” lists are my specialty but folding laundry is to be avoided at all costs. My sister likes to put tasks on her to-do list that she’s already completed, just for the satisfaction of crossing something off. When the FH (future husband) and I first got engaged I decided I was going to be the most organized brideto-be that the world has ever seen. I created the “wedding binder” intended to hold all receipts, charts, notes, inspiration, etc — anything relating to the Big Day. That binder is currently gathering dust…somewhere. I’m not too sure where it is, exactly. I like to take notes to remind myself to do things. Unfortunately I end up
Lydia Beers staff Writer
with 13 sticky notes that say things like “get E,” “bank statement” and sometimes a phone number with no name, or a person’s name with no apparent action attached to it. (Am I supposed to call this person? Give them a hug? Blacklist them?) The indecipherable notes are usually crumpled in the bottom of my bag ready to fly out at the tiniest jostle and reveal my faux organization to the world. Have you ever experienced that horrible feeling of waking up in the middle of the night with the realization that something didn’t get done? The only thing worse is dreaming that
the World
something didn’t get done when it’s taken care of in real life. Organizing is a hot trend in home decorating right now. I’m a sucker for those “before and after” photo shoots where they show a normal person’s living room and then how it looks after they organized the heck out of it. It’s magical — mostly because it will never happen in my living room. I don’t understand why you are supposed to have a container for everything. Just because I have three matching totes for towels in the linen closet doesn’t mean that those towels are actually going in the closet… With that being said, whenever I force myself to be organized life is much nicer. For example, I’m prepared when this situation arises: “Do you have a pen?” Why yes…yes I do — because all the pens, pencils, and markers are all in one place. At least, for now. Don’t ask me tomorrow. Lydia Beers is a staff writer for The Pilot News Group.
(Bedford) Times-Mail Indiana must decide how important its mothers, wives, sisters and daughters are, and what value state leaders, policy-makers and legislators place on the safety of women throughout the Hoosier state. Troubling statistics reveal that 17 percent of high-schoolaged girls in Indiana have been forced to have sex against their will, most often by a family member or trusted adult. What’s just as startling is the Hoosier state ranks second in the nation when measuring the rate of sexual assault against girls, behind only Wyoming. The national rate is 10.5 percent. But those statistics are nothing new. Youth risk behavior surveys, along with data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the state health department, have reflected the same level of sexual assault among Indiana girls since such data started being collected in the 1970s. If the statistics aren’t bad enough, the data focused on sexual violence and prevention efforts in Indiana are unacceptable. Jonathan Plucker, former director of the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy at Indiana University, says he was shocked by just how little the Hoosier state is doing to bring attention to the problem. The reality in Indiana, he said, “is massively and horrifically worse than we ever thought it was.” He suggests the message about sexual abuse of young women in Indiana must be spread far and wide, “so that everyone is so uncomfortable” that steps will be taken to change the trend. And it’s obvious changes must be made. Part of the problem is, in Indiana, the issue of sexual abuse and young people is imbedded in society. Too many males aren’t raised to respect their female counterparts. Changing the trend will require a new way of thinking, based on respect and equality for the opposite sex. To accomplish that goal, Indiana must start with prevention awareness, then immediately strengthen educational programs aimed at young people. The state must support existing community-based programs and redirect social norms so it’s no longer considered OK to assault women. Plucker also advocates for a legislative push, backed with funding, that would force implementation of a strong statewide prevention plan to undo the state’s knot in dealing with a problem that’s bigger than some imagine. Hoosiers throughout the state must pull their heads from the sand, recognize the problem and make an immediate plan of attack. We can no longer sit around and let the state’s incidence of sexual assault lead the nation. Our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends deserve better. Copyright 2013 HoosierTimes Inc.

(Fort Wayne) News-Sentinel Can you believe that in this day and age someone could be jailed just for something he wrote? But that has happened in this state, and unless the Indiana Supreme Court agrees to take up the case of Daniel Brewington, the right of free expression will be so weak here that it is likely to happen again and again. Brewington was outraged by a southeast Indiana judge’s handling of his divorce case, so he began posting about the case on his blog, hundreds of rants calling the judge’s actions unethical and illegal. His words were so strong that authorities decided he had crossed the line from free speech to criminal behavior. He was convicted in 2011 of intimidation of a judge, attempted obstruction of justice and perjury. He is in jail to this day, and the Indiana Court of Appeals last month upheld the most serious of his convictions. If that ruling is allowed to stand, warns University of California law professor Eugene Volokh, “then much criticism of legislators, executive officials, judges, business people and others — whether by newspapers, advocacy groups, politicians or other citizens — would be punishable.” Volokh is one of many people from across the political spectrum urging the Supreme Court to hear the case. Among the petitioners is the Indianapolis Star, whose editor said that Indiana’s intimidation law, which was used in this case, “could be used as a weapon to go after anyone — whether that’s a journalist, a private citizen, an activist, whatever the case — who doggedly criticizes the actions of public officials or public figures.” The problem with our intimidation law is that it is so broad. It rightly makes it a criminal offense to threaten blackmail and physical violence face to face. But Volokh points out that it also prohibits statements that threaten to “expose the person threatened to hatred, contempt, disgrace or ridicule.” That’s the rule the Court of Appeals seemed to be using, and it makes the line between harsh criticism and criminal intimidation pretty tricky to negotiate. Since the dawn of the Internet Age, more and more people have availed themselves of the freedom to speak out, and it can get a little wild and wooly out there in cyberland. Courts need to be more careful than ever not to criminalize speech that should have First Amendment protection. And when they aren’t careful, we need to call them on it, even if it exposes them to disgrace or ridicule. If the Indiana Supreme Court does not act, Hoosiers will be more inclined to hold their tongues when they should be speaking their minds.

State Wabash River lore links ecology, history
ken throughout the Great Lakes area, one she said was used by the Miami Indians. Of Iroquois lineage herself, she explained that her group formed five years ago as part of an effort to protect mounds in Sullivan County. Since that time the group has grown and has interest in preserving such landmarks from northern Terre Haute to Vincennes, she said. “The native people and indigenous people before this were wanderers,” she said, explaining the numerous groups referred to as “mound builders” lived in this area between 500 B.C. and 1500 A.D. Woodland tribes, she said, built villages near rivers for a multitude of reasons, some practical and others religious. “One of our most important ceremonies is the water ceremony.” The group has partnered with the archaeology department of Indiana University-Bloomington to investigate the local mounds. Recent digs in Sullivan County have produced 420 artifacts, about 10 of which were classified as “pre-historic,” meaning they pre-date 500 B.C., she said. Artifacts found are in the possession of the IU museum departments, she said, but care must be taken with regard to potential graves. The Native American Graves Protection Act dictates with great specificity the care to be taken if bones are found, she said. “That’s federal law,” she pointed out, while a member of the audience remarked 500 years from now, modern cemeteries could be studied in such a manner. According to McCormick, archaeologists estimate humans have populated the Wabash River’s valley back about 10,000 years. A myriad of tribes and ethnic groups have come and gone since then, he said, explaining the river served purposes ranging from transportation to agricultural. And along the way, much surrounding the river has changed considerably. Historical evidence suggests that Spaniards first battled native tribes as early as 1541 near the Wabash River, and up through the War of 1812, the river played a significant role in military operations, he said. But it probably appeared much differently than today, he noted, pointing out that in 1828, a 200-acre island existed in the middle of what is now Hulman Street, and what is now Thompson Ditch was once a creek. Efforts to dredge and clean the river date back to the 1820s, and as many as nine steamboats have sunk in its waters, he said.
Pilot News • Weekend, March 2-3, 2013 ‘Widowed’ South Bend falcon finds new mate
SOUTH BEND (AP) — Guinevere appears to have found a new mate. The city’s resident female peregrine falcon has been spotted in recent weeks hunting downtown with another bird, Carol Riewe, a local raptor rehabilitator, told the South Bend Tribune. “They have been seen hunting pigeons together and swooping and diving,” Riewe said, “so it looks like somebody has picked up on the widow here and is going to stay.” “And it’s time for that,” Riewe said, “because normally, in past years, we had egg-laying beginning in the third week of March, the 23rd or 24th, somewhere in that area.” Riewe said she has spotted the pair herself recently. “I have seen them evenings, after dark,” she said, “roosting in the west side windows of the Tower Building.” She said she doesn’t know if the other bird is banded because she hasn’t been able to get a close enough look at it. She said the camera atop County-City Building that is pointed at Guinevere’s nest has been disabled since last year because of a wiring problem. “The roof has to be clear of ice and snow before anybody gets up there” to fix it, she said. Peregrine falcons keep the same mate year-to-year, and generally don’t accept a replacement unless their partner dies or disappears. Guinevere’s former longtime mate, Zephyr, died last June in an accident while he was hunting downtown. The two produced several broods over the years. The pair’s last chick, Zoey, flew the coop over the summer, Riewe said. “She left in late August, which is what they do,” she said. “They get to a point in their development where they just decide they have to move on.”
TERRE HAUTE. (AP) — A flood of old river lore washed around a crowd of river lovers Thursday night in a flow of history on everything from canoes to steamers. The crowd gathered inside Logan’s Rib-Eye for an installment of the “2013 Art and River Chatter Series,” with Vigo County Historian Mike McCormick joining Susan Petosky of the Sullivan County American Indian Council to discuss the Wabash River. McCormick said that at various points throughout history, the Wabash River was considered a more significant body of water than even the Ohio River. “It is my hope that this discussion will bring about more such talks about the Wabash River,” he said during his presentation. The program is part of the third annual Art Chatter series hosted by Arts Illiana through a partnership with Our Green Valley Alliance. Lorrie Heber, president of Our Green Valley Alliance for Sustainability, told the Tribune-Star the two groups share many common interests. “Art and ecology are inextricably intertwined,” she said. Petosky opened her presentation using one of the many ancient Native American languages commonly spo-
Tornado survivor stays positive, recovers
SELLERSBURG (AP) — A southern Indiana woman who lost parts of both her legs last year when a deadly tornado destroyed her home says she is working to regain physical and mental strength and that many good things have come of the tragedy. Stephanie Decker, 38, protected her two young children from falling debris on March 2, 2012, as the twister demolished her family’s house near Henryville, Ind., about 20 miles north of Louisville. She’s now learning to walk on prosthetic legs. Decker has since lobbied for legislation that would require private insurers to give amputees in her native Kentucky greater access to advanced prosthetics, The CourierJournal of Louisville reported Thursday. The bill advanced out of a Kentucky House committee Wednesday. Decker has also appeared on national television, accompanied her family on a pregame visit with the New York Yankees and visited the Oval Office with her family. She appealed to President Barack Obama in June for greater access for amputees to current prosthetic technology, which has greatly advanced in response to American military personnel injuries. “So many good things have come from this accident,” Decker told The CourierJournal. “I know that’s kind of strange to say.”
TICKETS FOR TED NUGENT & ALICE COOPER will be available at Karma Records in Plymouth. Call 574-936-5840 for information.
Decker plans to mark Saturday’s tornado anniversary by inviting friends, relatives and supporters to sign the framework of the family’s new home in Sellersburg. The tornado killed at least 35 people and injured many others in Southern Indiana and Kentucky. Thousands of buildings were damaged or destroyed. The afternoon of March 2, 2012, Decker picked up her two children — Dominic, 9, and Reese, 6 — from school while her husband, Joe, was still at work at Silver Creek High School in Sellersburg. When the tornado hit, Decker huddled over her two children in the basement as a steel beam, bricks and other debris fell. She was rescued from the basement and taken to a hospital. She had surgery, and two months later stood on her first prosthetic leg. She has since resumed a regular routine. “I get up in the morning and instead of putting on a pair of shoes, I put on a pair of legs,” Decker said. “And then my day begins. It’s fixing lunches, getting kids off to school. I then usually head off to the gym. ... It’s one of the things that has really helped me get physically and mentally back in shape.” Decker still runs errands at the store and takes her kids to baseball, softball and basketball games. She walks with the help of a cane and her right prosthetic ankle has a setting for driving.

Culver junior Trent Elliott, cashing in against a new defender with Yeo out of the game, rattled in a jumper off the dribble in the paint to make it a 23-20 game on the same possession. The Cavs, though, scored just one more bucket over the final 6:31 of the frame against Triton’s stingy man-to-man defense and the Trojans carried a 28-22 surplus into the fourth. “We didn’t close the gap like we wanted,” Culver head coach Kyle Elliott said. “Two things happened: (Triton) picked up the defensive intensity when Clay went out, and our offensive execution didn’t pick up.” Yeo returned in the fourth quarter and recorded 11 of his game-high 16 points in the final 5:37. He also finished with eight rebounds,

Trojans beat Culver, head to final
By Dee Grenert Staff Writer
CULVER — And the award for best supporting cast goes to Triton’s boys basketball team. With senior starters Clay Yeo and Seth Glingle saddled with third-quarter foul trouble, the Trojans actually extended their advantage and pulled away in the fourth frame for a 44-32 win over host Culver Community in Class A Sectional 51 semifinal action at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Friday. No. 10 Triton shoots for its sixth straight sectional crown tonight at 6:30 p.m. against No. 8 Michigan City Marquette, an 81-46 victor over Westville in Friday’s nightcap. “We had major foul trouble,” Triton head coach Jason Groves, whose team avenged Jan. 11’s 46-42 home loss against Culver, said. “Seth and Clay had three fouls, Cody Shively had three fouls. The guys that came in did a decent job. Obviously we’re a different team without Clay. They weathered the storm. “Culver plays hard, is well coached, and knows how to defend us; we usually play them three times a year with Bi-County and sectional,” he added. “It’s a bad matchup for us. We knew it would be a grind-it-out, possession basketball game. We handled it better this game; last game we panicked.” Triton held a 23-18 edge when Glingle went to the sideline with 6:41 left in the third quarter with his third personal, followed by Yeo a single second later.
four assists, and three steals — game-leading totals all. “We wanted to contain Clay Yeo, and I thought we defended him fairly well as well as (Tanner) Shepherd, their second-leading scorer,” the Culver boss said. “It wasn’t just one kid, all of their kids contributed to a balanced attack. We had some double teams that our secondary rotation was slow to pick up and we gave up three or four easy baskets that way.” The Trojans, who led from Cody Shively’s game-opening basket in the post on, built a 21-9 lead midway through the second quarter, thanks to a pair of triples — one from each corner — by Skyler Reichert and another from Joey Corder.

Pilgrims advance; Falcons fall
By rusty nixon Staff Writer
PLYMOUTH — One local team’s defensive struggles are sending them home for the offseason, another’s defensive prowess will give them a shot at a sectional title as Glenn fell to South Bend St. Joe by a 63-49 final and Plymouth won a classic with Marian 59-57 at the Plymouth Sectional on Friday. It was a classic but not for the reason many thought it would be. Plymouth squaring off with Marian featured two of the state’s top players in Mack Mercer of Plymouth and Marian guard Demetrius Jackson and many waited to see how the two would battle each other with a sectional title on the line. While Mercer watched with foul trouble for much of the game his teammates matched Jackson and the Knights move for move and came away with a big win. “They are explosive; they won the championship last year and we knew they weren’t going to go out without a fight,” said Plymouth coach Ryan Bales. “They showed that. We got up a few times and extended the lead and put ourselves in good positions but they battled back. Our kids showed a lot of grit and got the job done.” That they did. Joe Knapp had the game of his life with 24 points and Kyser McCrammer scored the eight biggest points of his defensive-minded career in Plymouth basketball. His tip-in basket late in the game could very well be considered a game winner.

Lancers beat advance to Westview championship with win over Prairie Heights

Plymouth’s Joe Knapp (14) takes the ball to the basket against Marian’s Demetrius Jackson at The Rock on Friday. “A lot of (their) attention was on Mack,” said Bales. “Kyser cut without the ball he got an offensive rebound and he got the ball off a screen and on top of that he’s guarding the best player in the state and expending all that effort. He didn’t quite match Demetrius’ point total but that’s fine it was enough to get it done.”

TOPEKA — LaVille head coach Michael Edison wasn’t wholly satisfied with his players’ defensive effort in their sectional-opener Wednesday night, even after it resulted in a comfortable 58-42 win over Fremont. The Lancers went back to the drawing board at practice Thursday, and Prairie Heights paid the price Friday. LaVille held the Panthers scoreless for a span of more than nine and a half minutes stretching from the 3:13 mark of the first quarter to the 6:20 stop of the second frame, and after Prairie Heights finally broke the drought, never surrendered another bucket for the remainder of the first half to open up a 28-10 gap at the break. Holding onto a 20-point lead early in the third period, LaVille maintained its lead with a patient halfcourt offense, ultimately claiming a 56-35 Westfield Sectional semifinal win over Prairie Heights. The Lancers thus earn their first sectional championship berth since the 1991-92 season opposite two-time defending champion Westview, a 55-35 winner over Central Noble in the early semifinal Friday. “It’s nice to have a good defensive stretch like that,” said Edison of his team’s game-changing run in the second quarter. “It’s something we always try to work on and we always try to stress. Even in the day that we had off in Thursday’s practice, I was working them hard on defense because I was not pleased with some things that we did in the Wednesday night game. But I love how they stepped up.” The contest was nip-tuck early with three ties and two lead changes in the first frame. But after the Panthers took their only lead of the night on a lay-in by junior guard Kyler West at the 3:13 stop of the period, LaVille went on a 21-2 spree to put the game all but completely out of reach by the half. With so much ground for the Panthers to make up, the Lancers patiently worked the ball In the halfcourt in the second half, knocking down 9 of 17 field goal attempts and 7 of 9 free throws over the final two periods for their sixth straight win. “I know we won by about 20, but I didn’t feel comfortable at any time,” said Edison. “I know (Jacob) Heller is quite a player. He can just drive, he can shoot. We had to really key in on him. I felt like they could come back; we were up by 22 and they brought it down to 15 with about four or five minutes to go. He’s just explosive, and they’ve got some other shooters as well. “We have so much respect for the other team’s offense, we want to keep it out of their hands for as long as possible on our offensive end and be as patient as possible because we know what they’re capable of, that’s kind of what it boils down to. I did like our poise that we played with, and we wanted to work the ball and get a high percentage shot.” The Lancers’ balanced offense yielded three players in double figures as Nicholas Amor and Blake Berger scored from in close and from off the drive, respectively, and Andrew Hostetler knocked down a pair of 3s on his way to a team-high 17 points for the night. All total, seven LaVille players made their way onto the scoresheet as the Lancers notched 16 team assists led by three apiece from Berger and Amor on the way to 20-of-39 field efficiency. “We have a lot of unselfish guys on our team, and really it’s not just cliche when I say this — they don’t care who gets the credit,” said Edison. “They want that ultimate goal

back late in the game, but McCrammer and fellow defensive specialist Ike Kastner were able to force turnovers from the future Notre Dame point guard at crucial moments that would be key to a Plymouth win. While Mercer didn’t spend a bulk of the game on the floor, the time he was there he was definitely a force to be reckoned with. He ended the night with 11 points, 12 rebounds — six of those in a key stretch late in the fourth quarter — four assists and five blocked shots. Mercer spent time on the sideline due to an injury earlier in the year and Bales felt it might have been that time when other players needed to take up the slack, that could have been crucial in the win. “Sometimes things happen for a reason,” said Bales. “I always hate to see kids get injured; we don’t want them off the court but our kids made plays to get the job done tonight and it might have had something to do with the confidence they gained earlier in the year. “It was a team effort. That group of upperclassmen in at the end when Mack went out — they stepped up, they showed some toughness, we got some key stops, some timely buckets off hustle plays, maybe a rebound, maybe a dive on the floor, we found a way.” Plymouth (19-3) will have to find a way again Saturday night against St. Joe to win a sectional title. Marian ends the year at 11-10.

The Lancers also benefitted from strong bench by Cam Gurtner, Ryan Bettcher and Alec Baker. “Bettcher is probably our most athletic kid in the school with jumping, running; he’s just an amazing athlete. He’s a sophomore, Baker’s a sophomore, but I feel confident in those guys,” Edison said. “When we put them in I don’t feel like oh geesh, we’re going to turn it over, or oh geesh they’re going to make some bonehead play. They play solid for us, and that’s what we’re asking because sometimes Nick Amor might be in foul trouble. It could be any number of reasons — a guy might need a breather — and I thought they stepped up well tonight. Cam Gurtner he played some really good defense four us. I was really pleased with those three or four guys that came off the bench.” Prairie Heights was paced by Heller’s game-high 18 points with six rebounds as the Panthers bowed out at 11-12 with the loss. LaVille advances to play host Westview tonight, a repeat Sectional 35 champion that has gone 10-1 on its home floor this season. The Lancers are competing for the program’s first sectional title since the 1985-86 season. “It’s our goal every year to make it to the sectional championship and hopefully win it,” LaVille’s boss said. “Moving on to tomorrow, Westview will be probably our toughest team that we play all year. They didn’t get off to the best start earlier today, but they will bring their best game tomorrow against us. We’ll have to execute, we’ll have to minimize our turnovers, we’ll have to knock in some shots, and we’ll have to just play some good, solid LaVille basketball.”

“We weren’t very good defensively. They were quicker than we were — we tried to go zone and they started knocking down shots from the perimeter. We had a hard time guarding them and that was the bottom line.” A short but poignant bottom line from Glenn head coach Travis Hannah as he watched his team expend a lot of effort but was never quite able to lock down the Indians enough to make it hurt. “I think we might have seen it coming,” said Hannah. “We hadn’t practiced very well the last couple of days. I was hoping we’d come out with more energy than we did.” While Glenn piled up first-half turnovers — 10 to be exact — St. Joe still struggled to break away. Early in the third quarter the Falcons were able to cut the deficit to five points. That’s when St. Joe found its range and for the fourth quarter it was a matter of shooting free throws. Tyler Prentkowski carried the offensive effort early with four three’s ending the night with 15 points, Austen Hayes had 14 and Jake Strong was a force inside with 13 rebounds but it wouldn’t be enough. “We played OK in spurts but in a game like this you have to have everybody step up and play and I never

are both sophomores and playing better, with more confidence, and as a result they’re getting quite a bit of playing time,” Groves said. “Skyler shoots the ball extremely well. Joey is shooting the ball better. I talked to him about being confident and when he gets an open shot to knock it down. I’m pleased that the sophomores took (Culver) out of their zone and into man.” Trent Elliott finished with a game-high 13 points for the Cavs, who finished 31 percent from the field. Culver senior center Micah Budzinski added eight points, eight rebounds, and four blocked shots. “First of all I’m very proud of the kids’ effort,” Kyle Elliott said. “We thought we had to keep it in the 40s to have a chance, and we did. If you’re going to beat Triton and do it at tournament time you have to play an almost perfect game.” Culver finishes its season at 13-9 and graduates Budzinski, four-year starting point guard Collin Stevens, Tucker Schultz, Kyle Vlach, and Bradley Beaver. “Collin Stevens and Micah Budzinski are two guys who are four-year starters,” Kyle Elliott said. “They’ve spent countless hours in the weight room making themselves better players, and as a result made our program better. Tucker Schultz, Bradley Beaver, and Kyle Vlach are three other kids who bit into the program. “I hope we’re headed in the right direction, and I know we are because we’ve had three consecutive winning seasons,” he added. “The drawback is that we don’t have any championships, and I measure success on the basis of championships. As far as developing players, improving players, and turning out quality young men, we’re losing five of them. At the same time, we’re excited with what we have coming back.”

Ask Al
Planning, Planning, Planning! I am planning for the upcoming home show. I am planning for SPRING! I hope you are planning to maintain your house. Everything I hear through the grapevine says that material prices across the board will be higher at the end of 2013 than they are now. Hurricane Sandy that hit the east coast was an extra large storm and did wide spread damage. Materials are now being used to repair that damage and that will continue. Gas prices have been steadily pushing the $4 per gallon mark. All this information leads me to think that planning any project you want done sooner would be better than later. If you wait, plan on paying more for materials. Just trying to give you a heads-up. You might want to plan your projects now while money is still cheap to borrow. As winter comes to a close- walk around your house and look for missing shingles, loose siding, loose gutters or downspouts, rotten wood or trim. Algae, moss or mildew are good indicators that excess water is present. 574-936-8564 Good luck with all of your planning! Planning to see you next time, Al

For those who thirst — come to ‘The Well’
Patience is the cornerstone of faith
Reflections of Isaiah 28:14-22
“This, now, is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘I am placing in Zion a foundation that is firm and strong. In it I am putting a solid cornerstone on which are written the words, ‘Faith that is firm is also patient.” — Isaiah 28:16 How many times would your children have to disobey your wishes, before you disowned them? How about your spouse, how many times for them not to hear your words before you would say; that’s it. How about your pet or co-worker? We all have had bad days in our relationships, but do we actually count all the infractions we experience in life? If we did, we would be too busy counting and not living our lives. When we stop to think, we would rather overlook many of the negative experiences in life and proceed to live. The nation of Israel seemed to

At the Well
By Dennis Wenzel
always be at odds with God. They had their moments of listening to his will, but more times not doing what he desired. Most people feel that God of the Old Testament is just a wrathful being, waiting for people to step out of line so he could “zap” them. But taking a closer look one realizes that God was so loving, that if the people turned away he would let them. At their own hands their fate would befall them and when they turned back to God, his outstretched arms were there to receive them. Just as Isaiah told the people: “Faith that is firm is also patient”, so God modeled
this for his people. As parents and people in relationship with others, the counting game always defeats others. Instead of counting others faults, we need to be busy at praying for them. Children eventually grow into people who have time for others and parents become instantly wise. Spouses, who are busy at prayer, continue to encourage their loved ones with time and patience. Everyone has their freewill to follow their hearts, but the firmest foundation of their relationships is the patience they exercise. For when our faith is strong, it never fails in God’s grace. Dear Lord, help me develop patience in my life for others. When things go wrong, help me to prayer for their needs. In your patience for me, I carry your word as my firm foundation in you. Amen. Dennis Wenzel is pastor at Immanuel Lutheran Church — ELCA.

Youth groups begin in Kewanna March 3
There is the story of an old man who was crossing the desert in the days of the early American pioneers. He had run out of water and was dying of thirst. Suddenly, he spotted a water pump near an abandoned shack. He inched his way to the pump, mustered up enough strength to work the handle, but nothing happened; no water came. Then he noticed a jug near the pump with a note attached. The note read: “There is just enough water in this jug to prime the pump, but not if you drink some first. This well has never gone dry, even in the worst of times. Just pour in the water from the jug and pump the handle quickly. After you have satisfied your thirst, refill this jug for the next thirsty person who comes along.” What should the man dying of thirst have done? The contents of the note called for complete trust in the person who wrote it. If the dying man followed the instructions, he ran the risk of pouring out all the water from the jug into a pump that might fail. He

was being asked to put his trust in the message unconditionally. He was being asked to respond to the message in complete faith. He was being asked to believe, without reservation, the absolute truth of the message. In the city of Plymouth or any city for that matter, it is one thing to believe that Jesus is the son of God; it is quite another to believe in the son of God and commit to a life of service to others. It is one thing to believe that Jesus reveals God’s will to us in the Scriptures; it is quite another to believe in what he says and what he does and what he commands us to do. It is one thing to kneel before him; it is quite another to follow him and share in his
ministry of healing and reconciling and caring. You can consider it a challenge or a contest, or your life’s goal. Jesus is asking you to follow him. It is a matter of taking up the cross daily and following him. We are told to pray without ceasing. Do we pray without ceasing? Do we pray other than to thank God for our food at meal time? Do we pray for our neighbors? What about our leaders in Washington? I know for a fact that they could use some prayer this week. The old man in the desert had a choice. He chose complete trust in what the note said. He followed the note’s instructions to the letter. The result was that he was made happy. His thirst was quenched and he was satisfied. Are you satisfied with your life? Is it time to trust someone? Jesus never fails. Bob Collier is the pastor of North Salem Church of God.

Area youth to sing in Mennonite festival Sunday
GOSHEN — Two young people from Plymouth will join with more than 150 other youth to sing in a festival concert at the Goshen College Music Center in Goshen, on Sunday, March 3 at 2 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public. Shelby and Hayden Rahe of Plymouth are joining singers from Ohio, Illinois Michigan, and across Indiana to put on the concert, which is the culmination of the Mennonite Youth Choir Festival. Just two days long and in its 22nd year, the festival consists of a Saturday practice and a Sunday afternoon concert under the baton of a distinguished guest conductor the first weekend in March. The 2013 guest conductor is Dr. Stephen Barton, director of choral activities and chair of the voice department, Grand Rapids Community College, Michigan. “The aim of the festival,” says Lola Gingerich, the festival committee director, “is to give youth a taste of the richness of sacred choral music in a fun setting with other children and young teens who love to sing.” Open to all students in grades 3 through 9 from any faith community, the festival weekend leads up to the Sunday afternoon 2 p.m. concert by the youth that is free of charge and open to the public. The children prepare for the festival by listening to CDs and learning the sheet music sent to them. Directions to the Music Center are posted on the festival’s website, as are photos and audio clips of the children singing.

Nighttime bed-wetting help
Q: I have a 75-year-old mother and a 5-year-old son — and both of them are wetting the bed. Double help! — Jean F., Boise, Idaho A: Bed-wetting and incontinence are challenging problems for both those experiencing the trouble and the caretaker — YOU. Fortunately, with a little work, both conditions can be managed pretty well. Your son is only 5, and occasional bed-wetting is common up to age 7; about 20 percent of 5-year-olds can’t always stay dry at night. They may not have fully developed bladder control mechanisms, or they’re not producing enough of the hormone vasopressin, which reduces urine production at night. Rarely is bedwetting a
sign of illness. Your best bet is: • Use absorbent pads and underwear at night. • Eliminate all caffeinecontaining drinks (colas, for example). • Make sure he urinates regularly during the day and right before bed. • You also can use a moisture alarm that will wake him at the first sign of dampness. In six to 12 weeks he may begin to recognize the feeling that he has to go and wake himself up. For many older folks, incontinence is a problem. (In
Japan, diaper sales for older folks exceed diaper sales for infants.) When it happens at night, it’s usually from an overactive bladder —and leakage can happen with or without the sensation that you gotta go. Some medications trigger OAB, as can neurological disease, injury or infection, but much of the time the cause is unknown. Fortunately, there are potential solutions. • Your mom can try pelvic floor muscle exercises (Kegels) and bladder retraining to increase her ability to hold in urine. • Medications are effective. Check with her doc and ask about oxybutynin, which inhibits nerve impulses that cause leakage, and darifenacin, which reduces muscle spasms of the bladder and urinary tract.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 14-year-old female from the West Coast. I am home-schooled and don’t have many friends because I score high in tests, meaning I retain more information than the average person. On the rare occasion that I mingle with children my own age, they call me unpleasant names, play pranks on me and otherwise torture me. I had to change my emergency cellphone number and start using my sister’s because there have been so many immature and insulting prank calls. I hate it. I can’t help that I am BY JEANNE PHILLIPS smart, and I refuse to degrade myself by dumbing down my actions and speech because they can’t handle their insecurities. — HIGH IQ DEAR HIGH IQ: Being “different” isn’t easy, and clearly you are very intelligent. But you and your parents should understand that crank calls are not “pranks” — they are a form of bullying and should have been reported when they happened. Most parents who home-school also network with other home-schooling parents so their children can socialize with peers. If your parents haven’t done this, I recommend you discuss it with them. You might also meet more intellectually advanced young people if you joined special-interest groups for older students. Your high IQ might be less threatening to the students who have given you trouble if you
High-achieving home-schooler suffers bullying by others
Chuckle of the day...
By Tony Rizzo HOLLYWOOD — “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” fans have had their prayers answered. The two former ABC soaps went back into production in late February. Prospect Park’s The Online Network is producing new 30-minute episodes for online viewing. Susan Lucci has not signed to return, but Darnell Williams, Debbi Morgan, Vincent Irizarry, Lindsey Hartley, Jordi Vilasuso, Jill Larson and Thorsten Kaye have. “One Life’s” Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Tuc Watkins, Robert S. Woods, Kassie DePaiva, Jerry VerDom, Florencia Lozano, Melissa Archer, Hillary B. Smith, Kelley Missal, Josh Kelly and Andrew Trischitta are returning. Both shows will stream on, starting this spring. Also signed to the cast of “All My Children” is Rob Wilson. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Wilson won the male model search on “The Price Is Right” and appeared for one week (the prize), after which fans demanded he be a regular model on the show. Rob will now have to be bi-coastal, taping AMC in Connecticut and “Price” in Hollywood, Calif. “Price” tapes at CBS, across the hall from “The Bold and The Beautiful,” and that’s where Rob was discovered and signed to two guest appearances, which aired March 4 and 5. He also guested on Betty White’s “Off Their Rockers” NBC show. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy! *** Now that George Clooney is done getting awards for producing “Argo,” he’s set to star in “Tomorrowland,” a Disney science-fiction film named after the park attraction of the same name. Former “House” star Hugh Laurie plays the bad guy. It’ll be out December 2014. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
My resume is basically just a list of things I hate to do.
Dear Abby
volunteer to tutor some of them who need help with their schoolwork. (Just don’t fall into the trap of doing it FOR them.) ****** DEAR ABBY: I have been with my boyfriend, “Dan,” for almost five years. He’s wonderful and we have a great relationship. We have talked about spending our lives together, but had mutually agreed in the beginning that marriage wasn’t a priority for either of us. He has said for years that he never wanted to marry — which is fine with me. I now suspect that he’s planning to propose to me on our fifth anniversary. (He has never been great at hiding surprises.) I’m thrilled that he wants to make that kind of commitment, and I want nothing more than to spend the rest of my life with him, but the thought of marriage scares me. I don’t know if it’s nerves about the pending proposal or that I have never planned on marriage and now I have to think about all the stress and strife that comes with planning a wedding. I want to say yes, but I love the way things are right now, and I know that marriage will change things. What, if anything, do I say to him? — COLD FEET? IN SALT LAKE CITY DEAR COLD FEET?: I wish you had mentioned why you think being married to Dan would “change things.” If you’ve been happy together for five years, it’s unlikely that making a formal commitment would damage the special relationship you have together. Perhaps this is “old school,” but I feel that if couples plan to bring children into the world, they should be married. Because you want nothing more than to spend the rest of your life with Dan, and are concerned about the stress of planning a wedding, when he pops the question, I suggest you say, “Yes — why don’t we elope?”
Celebrity Extra
By Cindy Elavsky Q: Kevin Sorbo has always been one of my favorite actors, ever since “Hercules.” I loved seeing him earlier this season on “Don’t Trust the B---- in Apt. 23.” What has been up to since? Any chance we’ll see him in a comedy again soon? — Sherri P., via e-mail A: On March 23 at 8/7c, you can catch Kevin in the Hallmark Movie Channel’s “Shadow on the Mesa,” which also stars Wes Brown and Meredith Baxter. The movie takes place in the Old West, and Kevin plays rancher Ray Eastman, who is trying to protect his property from a land grab by a corrupt neighbor. I asked Kevin if he’d like to do another comedy, and he told me: “I would love to. I’ve done a lot of guest spots “Dharma & Greg,” “Two and a Half Men,” “Just Shoot Me” ... all those different things. I did have my own sitcom back in 2005. It was a halfhour comedy called “Bobby Cannon,” where I played an end-of-the-year quarterback for the Chicago Bears. “It tested No. 1 for ABC, but then the then-president of ABC decided not to pick it up. To this day we are shocked. There’s no doubt in my mind we’d be in our eighth season right now. Oh well ... welcome to the business of Hollywood.” *** Q: Isn’t it about time for a new “Dancing With the Stars”? — Gina W., Columbus, Ohio

A: It sure is, Gina. And this year has your usual crop of actors, singers and athletes, all of whom are ready to heat up the dance floor beginning Saturday, March 16, at 8 p.m. EDT with a two-hour premiere. The 16th season of the hit dancingcompetition show stars country singer Wynonna Judd, gymnast Aly Raisman, skater Dorothy Hamill, boxer Victor Ortiz, football player Jacoby Jones, reality star Lisa Vanderpump, country singer Kellie Pickler, comedian D.L. Hugley, comedian Andy Dick, soap-opera star Ingo Rademacher and Disney star Zendaya Coleman. *** Q: Has CBS canceled “Vegas”? — Marcia A. in New York A: While CBS hasn’t canceled the Dennis Quaid/ Michael Chiklis drama as of this writing, things aren’t looking good for it. The ratings aren’t as high as CBS expects from its dramas, and CBS downgraded its episode order from 22 to 21. “Vegas” returns with new episodes on Tuesday, March 19, after a month-long hiatus.

BY HELOISE Sound the horn on drawer Safety Dear Heloise: My husband stumbled on a great way to keep our 13-monthold grandson from getting into the kitchen drawers without having to install drawer SAFETY LATCHES. He purchased 24-inch extra-long shoehorns. They were inexpensive and plastic. He slid the shoehorn with the hook so that it grabs the drawer handle on the first drawer and slides down through the rest of them. Depending on the number of drawers in a set we want to secure, he cuts the shoehorn to the desired length. I usually make sure the bottom drawers are safe ones so my grandson can get into them -- his favorite place to play. Small downside: His little hands can sneak in on the sides, but he can’t really get into the drawer. -- Lynda H., Boerne, Texas Lynda, this is an inexpensive solution, but it’s wise to invest in the right safety locks. You don’t want to take a chance that a little one could get into trouble. -- Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: J.P. McGiffin of Bedford, N.H., sent a photo of her cat, Armani. She says this handsome boy knows how to keep warm or cool because he always wears his gray suit. To see Armani in his suit, visit and click on “Pets.” -- Heloise

new PreSCrIPtIon Dear Heloise: When I get a new prescription, I write on the bottle four days before the refill date as a reminder when to order the next refill. -- Bruce Cammack, Lubbock, Texas HEALTHIER MASHED POTATOES Dear Heloise: To make mashed potatoes a bit healthier, use half potatoes and half cabbage. Cut the cabbage into chunks and cook it with the potatoes until soft, drain well and mash or whip, adding whatever you normally add (like butter, cream, salt and pepper). My son discovered this one day when he didn’t have enough potatoes on hand. He remembered how much he used to like the combination of cabbage and potatoes when I boiled them with corned beef, so he thought he’d try them mashed together. It worked! You wouldn’t think so, but the cabbage flavor blended right in. Try it, Heloise. I like it even better than plain mashed potatoes. -- Laverne Wiles, via email BIrd BuyInG Dear Heloise: I am a bird breeder, hand-feeder and retailer of birds at a shop. It is important to do research before buying any pet. I suggest that readers buy from someone who educates as well as sells. There are many products that eliminate the mess birds make. There are products that can be bought that keep the food inside the cage instead of falling everywhere. -- A Reader in South Carolina handy CeLLPhone Dear Heloise: The lights were out in the men’s restroom at work recently, and the light from my cellphone saved the day. Hey, it worked! -- E.G., via email (c)2013 by King Features Syndicate Inc.

Take advantage of higher IRA contribution limits
Todd Bucher, left, receives the Silver Excellence in Mining Award from Tim Mulzer, president of IMAA board of directors.

Business Brief
Feeling like you
INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Mineral Aggregate Association (IMAA) has announced its “Excellence in Mining” (EIM) Award winners for 2012. The IMI Plymouth Aggregates quarry received one of 18 EIM awards given to IMI locations. The awards were given out at the IMAA Winter Workshop meetings in Indianapolis on Jan. 31. The EIM Awards are presented each year to IMAA producer member companies that excel in the following categories: environmental programs, safety programs, employee and community relations. These awards are sponsored by the IMAA Public Information and Education Committee to promote pride in the programs at local plants and quarries. Committee chair Dana Boyd announced that IMI Plymouth had met the specified criteria to receive recognition for the 2012 year. In addition to the Silver EIM Award, the Plymouth quarry was recognized with a One Year Safety Award. IMI Plymouth was one of 12 IMI Aggregate plants to receive the Safety Award. IMI Plymouth’s Todd Bucher was on hand to receive both awards. “We are very proud of the work our Plymouth personnel do. This award is a testament to our company’s commitment to excellence,” said Earl Brinker, CEO of Irving Materials, Inc. Irving Materials, Inc. (IMI) operates limestone, gravel and sand mining facilities across Indiana and ready mix concrete plants in five states (Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.) The IMAA is a trade association representing crushed stone, sand, gravel, and slag companies throughout Indiana. IMI Aggregates is an active member of the IMAA.
Plymouth quarry receives IMAA award
For the first time since 2008, contribution limits have risen for one of the most popular retirement savings vehicles available: the IRA. This means you’ve got a greater opportunity to put more money away for your “golden years.” Effective earlier this year, you can now put in up to $5,500 (up from $5,000 in 2012) to a traditional or Roth IRA when you make your 2013 contribution. And if you’re 50 or older, you can put in an additional $1,000 above the new contribution limit. Over time, the extra sums from the higher contribution limits can add up. Consider this example: If you put in $5,000 per year to an IRA for 30 years, and you earned a hypothetical 7 percent per year, you’d wind up with slightly over $505,000. But if you contributed $5,500 per year for those same 30 years, and earned that same 7% per year, you’d accumulate almost $556,000 — about $51,000 more than with the lower contribution limit. Keep in mind that if you have invested the above amounts in a traditional, tax-deferred IRA, you’ll be taxed on your withdrawals at your ordinary income tax rate. With a Roth IRA, your contributions are made with after-tax funds, but your withdrawals have the potential to be tax-free — provided you’ve had your account at least five years and don’t start taking withdraw-

als until you’re 59½. (Not everyone is eligible to contribute to a Roth IRA, as income limits apply.) If you have an IRA, you already know its advantages. If you aren’t investing in an IRA, you should be aware of these key benefits: • Tax-deferred growth — A traditional IRA can provide tax-deferred growth while a Roth IRA can potentially grow tax-free, provided you meet the conditions described above. To get a sense of just how valuable these tax advantages are, consider this example: If you put in $5,500 per year (the new IRA maximum) for 30 years to a hypothetical investment that earned 7% a year, but on which you paid taxes every year (at the 25% tax bracket), you’d end up with slightly more than $401,000 — about $155,000 less than what you’d accumulate in an IRA. As mentioned above, you will eventually have to pay taxes on your traditional IRA withdrawals, but by the time you

do, you might be in a lower tax bracket. Furthermore, depending on your income level, some of your contributions to a traditional IRA may be taxdeductible. (Roth IRA contributions are not deductible.) • Variety of investment options — You can invest your funds within your IRA in many types of investments — stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit (CDs), U.S. Treasury securities and so on. In fact, within your IRA, you can create a mix of investments that are suitable for your risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term goals. Of course, investing always carries some risks, including loss of principal — but the risk of not investing may be greater, in terms of not having enough assets for retirement. Here’s one more point to keep in mind: The earlier in the year you “max out” on your IRA contributions, the more time you’ll give your account to potentially grow. By reaching the new, higher contribution limits, and by fully funding your IRA as early in each year as possible, you can help yourself take full advantage of this powerful retirement savings tool.

Deciding when to start receiving Social Security
It’s always a tradeoff. The sooner you begin receiving Social Security benefits, the longer you may collect. But the longer you wait to start (up to age 70), the larger your monthly benefit will be. The amount of your Social Security benefit will depend on several factors, including your earnings history and when you choose to start your benefits, which you can do at any time after reaching age 62. “Full retirement age” — the age at which your full benefit amount becomes available — used to be age 65. However, the full retirement age is gradually increasing to 67, depending on your year of birth. If you start collecting Social Security before full retirement age, your monthly benefit will be permanently reduced by a fraction of a percent for each month before your full retirement age. But for each month you delay receipt beyond your full retirement age (up to age 70), your benefit will increase. For example, if you were born in 1943 or later, the increase is 8 percent per year. Breaking Even Are you better off starting sooner and taking a lower monthly benefit or delaying your start date and receiving a higher benefit? It may help to calculate your break-even age to find out how long it would take to make up

the money you’d lose by waiting. After you know your break-even age, you will want to think about your overall health, your family’s history of longevity, and your personal financial situation before you make a decision. Starting Early Some individuals choose to take their benefits as early as possible because they need the income for living expenses. Others, however, plan to invest the benefits until they need retirement income. The success of that strategy depends on being able to earn more, on an after-inflation-adjusted basis, than the reduction in benefit for commencing early. If you decide to start receiving benefits before your full retirement age, be careful of the earnings limitation. In 2012, the Social Security benefits

paid too much in taxes this year?
This year, evaluate whether you can benefit from:
1. Tax-advantaged investments. If appropriate, consider tax-free municipal bonds to provide federally tax-free income.* 2. Tax-advantaged retirement accounts. Consider contributing to a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or 401(k) to help lower your taxable income. 3. Tax-advantaged college savings accounts. Contribute or gift to a college savings plan for your children or grandchildren.

of individuals below full retirement age are reduced $1 for each $2 above $14,640 earned by working, including self-employment. Spousal Benefits Your spouse may receive Social Security benefits based on his or her own earnings record any time after age 62, with a reduced amount if the benefits start before full retirement age. Or, if more advantageous, your spouse may choose to receive benefits based on your earnings record, provided you have started taking your own benefits. The spousal benefit would be half of your benefit unless your spouse begins collecting benefits before full retirement age. In that case, the spousal benefit is permanently reduced. (You also have the option of receiving spousal benefits based on your spouse’s earnings record, subject to the same rules.) One Piece of the Puzzle Choosing the best time to begin receiving your Social Security benefits is just one of the important financial decisions you will need to make before retirement. Looking at your whole financial picture before you retire and putting together a personal plan based on your circumstances and needs may help. Please contact us for assistance.
