Union-North super says he’s in ‘no New managing hurry’ to hire new high school principal
Current principal leaving April 15
By Lydia Beers Staff Writer
LAKEVILLE — After less than a year on the job, LaVille Jr./Sr. High School principal Jeremy Tucker has announced he will be leaving for another position effective April 15. “(Tucker) had an opportunity to go and work for his father-in-law who owns a security door company,” said Union-North Superintendent Mitch Mawhorter. “It was one of those opportunities you can’t refuse.” Tucker was previously an assistant principal within the South Bend Community School Corporation. Mawhorter said Union-North is in the first week of its search for a new principal. He added that he doesn’t want to rush into hiring someone new. “We want to take our time and hire the best candidate,” said Mawhorter, adding that a committee of six will be reviewing all applications that come in. Mawhorter said the school corporation is looking for a person who is good with curriculum, very energetic, and able to relate to students and to their parents. He said that four individuals have applied for the position so far. The position is open to both internal and external applicants and people from the local area as well as outside. “If there is somebody that wants to apply for (the position) internally obviously they will have that opportunity,” noted Mawhorter. “We just really want the best candidate — the best fit for what we are doing.” Mawhorter said it’s “hard to tell” whether a new principal will be found before the end of this school year. While the search continues, Dean of Students Michael Edison and Mawhorter himself will undertake some of the principal’s usual responsibilities. Prior to Tucker coming on as principal, Chuck Phillips held the position. Phillips, who started with the school corporation in the athletic department, is now Director of Operations. The high school principal job opening is posted on the Union-North United School Corporation website, www. and on the Indiana Department of Education website.

In the words of Walt Disney, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” This week, I am following Disney’s advice. I am moving forward in my career, opening a new door and doing new things. I am the new managing editor at The Pilot News. As a seasoned journalist with more than a decade of experience, curiosity, like that referenced in Disney’s quote, is a good thing. I am curious about everything, especially what defines Plymouth and Marshall County. It is all new to me so I can’t wait to learn the history, culture, traditions, challenges and triumphs that make this place a hometown. A Chicago native, my family abandoned the cold winters for Florida. I also lived in the mountains of North Carolina, where I raised my daughter in a community very similar to Plymouth. I moved back home to be closer to my Northern roots about two years ago. It is familiar to me, even though a y’all will creep into my speech patterns once in a while. I have lived, worked, celebrated and thrived in communities similar to this one. I believe in being involved, taking part and giving back. I hope to be able to do all those things here, with your help. My most recent position was senior reporter at the Michigan City News Dispatch. Before that I was the only reporter at the Clay County Progress, a community paper in the small town of Hayesville, North Carolina. At the Progress, I covered education, local and county government, police, courts, health, business and churches. I also profiled people in the community, showcased local talent and covered hidden treasures among the people and places of my community. I can’t wait to do some of the same things here. There are good stories everywhere and everyone has a story to tell. Help me tell yours. Got an idea for a story or a series? Give me a call. Have a concern about something that is happening in the community? Let me know. My door is open. Contact Lois Tomaszewski via e-mail to: ltomaszewski@, or call 574-936-3101.

Getting ready for gardening...
By Lydia Beers Staff Writer
Despite the recent cold weather in the area, it’s time Office hours Weekdays 8-5 to start plant936-3101 ing your veg1-800-933-0356 etable garden for this year. Sports: 936-3104 Purdue Extension Educator Bob Yoder said the most important thing to do when thinking about starting a garden is to look at the space you have available. “For some bigger plants that take up more space like watermelon and sweet corn, you will need a larger space to make it worthwhile,” said Yoder. “You do need to put some thought into planting and determine the space you need before you go out and buy seeds.” If you’ve already purchased seeds and found out you don’t have space to plant them all, Yoder said it’s perfectly fine to save extra seeds until next year. “You can always store extra seeds in a cool place until next season,” said Yoder, adding, “You don’t have to waste the seeds.”
Pastor Steve Patrick leads members of the House of the Lord Church on their annual Good Friday procession carrying the Cross down Michigan Street to the church. Behind Patrick are Koan Deon, Darlene Stone, Roger Stone, Topanga Deon, Anthony Paul, Bethany Woolet, and Hannah Danti.
Yoder suggested consulting a gardening publication that explains how to space plants for maximum growth. Free guides are available at the Extension office located in the Marshall County Building, or online at Many people, including commenters on a recent Pilot News Facebook post, have decided to start their gardens indoors and transplant the veggies outside later in the season. “(My) wife started tomatoes and peppers a few weeks ago…the tomato plants are already four inches tall,” commented Anthony Gamble on the Pilot News Facebook page. Another commenter, P.J. Hanley, said
he plans to start some plants indoors this weekend. He’s hoping to keep soil warm and moist to achieve success. Yoder said it’s best to start plants indoors about a month before you plan to transplant to an outdoor garden. “(By planting inside) you can get a head start on the growing season,” said Yoder. “This is important for fine seeded plants such as tomatoes. Some plants, like gourds, need to be started inside because our season may not be long enough to fully develop the gourd. Different plants will tolerate cooler conditions better than others. You shouldn’t transplant tomatoes until there’s no more chance of frost.”

BY HELOISE Knickknacks Might Get Whacked Dear Heloise: I would like to add a comment to the suggestion on WASHING KNICKKNACKS in the dishwasher that I read in The Washington Post. Please be careful that there is no gold or silver trim on them and that they can withstand the heat in the dishwasher. There are only two of us in our household, and we also frequently run out of dishes before we can fill up the dishwasher. Our best set of dishes has silver on the edges and cannot be washed in the dishwasher. (Heloise here: Older and delicate items should be hand-washed, but modern pieces usually can be put in the dishwasher safely.) I also have learned that many pots and pans cannot be placed in the dishwasher (if they have wooden knobs or handles -- Heloise) because the heat will crack or splinter them and the handles. So, we sometimes run the appliance at less than full. Or we take back out the few dishes that we need and rewash them by hand. -- Pauline Lee, Bowie, Md. Thanks for sharing your hints. Many times it’s the high-heat water temperature or hot drying cycle that can cause damage. When the subject of washing knickknacks in the dishwasher comes up, we chuckle in Heloise Central. One of my assistants put carved doves in the dishwasher (she was newly
married), and when she opened the dishwasher, they were gone! They had dissolved with the hot water. So, always think before putting items (especially wooden or other specialty pieces) in the dishwasher. -- Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: Harold and Eula McChristian of Laneville, Texas, sent a photo of their adorable miniature Yorkshire terrier, Pebbles, sitting in a cocoa cup. She sure is a super cutie! To see her, visit and click on “Pets.” Why not take a minute and send or e-mail a photo of your special pet that you would like to share? You may be surprised to find your pet as the Heloise Pet of the Week! Send the photo to: Heloise/Pet Photo, P.O. Box 795000, San Antonio, TX 78279-5000. -- Heloise EATING HABITS Dear Heloise: I read about the cat who throws up. I also have a cat who throws up, and I try to prevent it by making him eat more slowly. I place two cat toy balls in his dish so he has to push them out of the way with his nose before he gets a piece of kibble. It has cut down on the throwing-up episodes quite a lot, and he is still quite a fat cat! -Sally in New Brunswick, Canada NO OVERFLOW Dear Heloise: I once let the bathtub overflow. Now, to prevent this, while the water is running in the tub, I carry a nylon scrub to remind me that the water is on. Not one overflow since! -- T.D., via email

Retirement, succession plans: Help keep roads ‘must haves’ for business owners safe this spring
If you own a business, you may well follow a “do it now” philosophy — which is, of course, necessary to keep things running smoothly. Still, you also need to think about tomorrow — which means you’ll want to take action on your own retirement and business succession plans.  Fortunately, you’ve got some attractive options in these areas. For example, you could choose a retirement plan that offers at least two key advantages: potential tax-deferred earnings and a wide array of investment options. Plus, some retirement plans allow you to make tax-deductible contributions. In selecting a retirement plan, you’ll need to consider several factors, including the size of your business and the number of employees.  If your business has no full-time employees other than yourself and your spouse, you may consider a Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) plan or an owner-only 401(k), sometimes known as an individual or solo 401(k). Or, if your goal is to contribute as much as possible, you may want to consider an owner-only defined benefit plan. If you have employees, you might want to investigate a SIMPLE IRA or even a 401(k) plan. Your financial advisor, working with plan design professionals and your tax advisor, can help you analyze the options and choose the plan that fits with your combined
Craig Wilson Edward Jones
personal and business goals. Now, let’s turn to business succession plans. Ultimately, your choice of a succession plan strategy will depend on many factors, such as the value of your business, your need for the proceeds from the sale of the business for your retirement, your successor, and how well your business can continue without you. If your goal is to keep the business within the family, you’ll need to consider how much control you wish to retain (and for how long), whether you wish to gift or sell, how you balance your estate among your heirs, and who can reasonably succeed you in running the business. Many succession planning techniques are available, including an outright sale to a third party, a sale to your employees or management (at once or over time), or the transfer of your business within your family through sales or gifts during your life, at your death or any combination thereof.
Many succession plans include a buy-sell agreement. Upon your death, such an agreement could allow a business partner or a key employee to buy the business from your surviving spouse or whoever inherits your business interests. To provide the funds needed for the partner or employee (or even one of your children) to purchase the business, an insurance policy could be purchased. Your estate plan — including your will and any living trust — should address what happens with the business, in case you still own part or all of it at your death.  The best-laid succession plans may go awry if the unexpected occurs. All these business succession options can be complex, so before choosing any of them, you will need to consult with your legal and financial advisors.   Whether it’s selecting a retirement plan or a succession strategy, you’ll want to take your time and make the choices that are appropriate for your individual situation. You work extremely hard to run your business — so do whatever it takes to help maximize your benefits from it. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.
Arulandu honored by Diabetes Physician Recognition Program
La PORTE — The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the American Diabetes Association announced Joseph Arulandu, MD, received honors from the Diabetes Physician Recognition Program for providing expert care to patients with diabetes. Dr. Arulandu has received this three-year status consecutively since 2006. The program was designed to improve the quality of care patients with diabetes receive by recognizing physicians who deliver quality diabetes care, and by motivating other physicians to document and improve delivery of diabetes care. To receive the honor, Dr. Arulandu submitted data demonstrating he meets the program’s key diabetes care measures, including: eye exams, blood pressure tests, nutrition therapy and patient satisfaction, among others. These measures, according to NCQA, ensure people with diabetes
receive quality care and are less likely to suffer complications such as heart attacks, stroke, blindness, kidney disease and amputations.
LEESBURG — With the warmer weather of spring comes one of the busiest and most exciting times of the year for farmers — planting season. As farmers head to the fields to plant, farm-vehicle traffic increases on local roads and highways. Local farmers encourage all drivers to exercise caution when approaching tractors and farm implements to ensure their safety and the safety of others. Kip Tom, of Tom Farms in Leesburg, says farmers and other drivers must work together to keep rural roads safe. “Planting season is certainly a hectic time for any farmer but our number one priority will always be safety,” he says. “When operating a farm implement on the road, we’re always extremely alert and aware of others on the road. However, it’s important that other drivers take caution and do their part as well to keep everyone on the road safe.” More than 157 accidents involving farm equipment occurred in Indiana in 2010. Tom Farms hopes alerting drivers of the increase in farm-vehicle traffic will reduce that number this year. Tom Farms has a couple of tips to keep in mind this spring, including: • Start slowly applying your brakes early. It takes only five seconds for a vehicle traveling 55 miles per hour to close a 100-yard gap with a tractor moving only 15 miles per hour. • A good rule of thumb when following farm equipment is to stay back at least 50 feet. • Don’t assume that a farm vehicle that pulls to the right side of the road will turn right or let the vehicle pass. • Look for the operator’s hand signals and check the left side of the road for gates, driveways or other places a farm vehicle might make a left turn. • Speak with young drivers about safety, too. “Especially if they are new to the road,” Tom says. “Some drivers may not know proper procedure when approaching a farm vehicle.” • Vehicle collisions most commonly occur between 4 and 8 p.m. This four-hour stretch often means increased activity on the road, as many make their way home from work, run errands, and shuttle children home from school and extracurricular activities. “If farmers and drivers work together and safely share the road, we can reduce accidents and ensure that everyone gets a chance to enjoy the warmer days ahead,” says Tom.

Risk and reward at the dawn of civilian drone age
WASHINGTON (AP) — The dawn of the age of aerial civilian drones is rich with possibilities for people far from the war zones where they made their devastating mark as a weapon of choice against terrorists. The unmanned, generally small aircraft can steer water and pesticides to crops with precision, saving farmers money while reducing environmental risk. They can inspect distant bridges, pipelines and power lines, and find hurricane victims stranded on rooftops. Drones — some as tiny as a hummingbird — promise everyday benefits as broad as the sky is wide. But the drone industry and those eager to tap its potential are running headlong into fears the peeping-eye, go-anywhere technology will be misused. Since January, drone-related legislation has been introduced in more than 30 states, largely in response to privacy concerns. Many of the bills would prevent police from using drones for broad public surveillance or to watch individuals without sufficient grounds to believe they were involved in crimes. Stephen Ingley, executive director of the Airborne Law Enforcement Association, says resistance to the technology is frustrating. Drones "clearly have so much potential for saving lives, and it's a darn shame we're having to go through this right now," he said. But privacy advocates say now is the time to debate the proper use of civilian drones and set rules, before they become ubiquitous. Sentiment for curbing domestic drone use has brought the left and right together perhaps more than any other recent issue. "The thought of government drones buzzing overhead and constantly monitoring the activities of lawabiding citizens runs contrary to the notion of what it means to live in a free society," Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said at a recent hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee. With military budgets shrinking, drone makers have been counting on the civilian market to spur the industry's growth. Some companies that make drones or supply support equipment and services say the uncertainty has caused them to put U.S. expansion plans on hold, and they are looking overseas for new markets. "Our lack of success in educating the public about unmanned aircraft is coming back to bite us," said Robert Fitzgerald, CEO of the BOSH Group of Newport News, Va., which provides support services to drone users. "The U.S. has been at the lead of this technology a long time," he said. "If our government holds back this technology, there's the freedom to move elsewhere ... and all of a sudden these things will be flying everywhere else and competing with us." Law enforcement is expected to be one of the bigger initial markets for civilian drones. Last month, the FBI used drones to maintain continuous surveillance of a bunker in Alabama where a 5-year-old boy was being held hostage. In Virginia, the state General Assembly passed a bill that would place a two-year moratorium on the use of drones by state and local law enforcement. The measure is supported by groups as varied as the American Civil Liberties Union on the left and the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation on the right. Gov. Bob McDonnell is proposing amendments that would retain the broad ban on spy drones but allow specific exemptions when lives are in danger, such as for search-and rescue operations. The legislature reconvenes on April 3 to consider the matter. Seattle abandoned its drone program after community protests in February. The city's police department had purchased two drones through a federal grant without consulting the city council. In Congress, Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., co-chairman of the House's privacy caucus, has introduced a bill that prohibits the Federal Aviation Administration from issuing drone licenses unless the applicant provides a statement explaining who will operate the drone, where it will be flown, what kind of data will be collected, how the data will be used, whether the information will be sold to third parties and the period for which the information will be retained. Privacy advocates acknowledge the many benign uses of drones. In Mesa County, Colo., for example, an annual landfill survey using manned aircraft cost about $10,000. The county recently performed the same survey using a drone for about $200.

Ind. court upholds 253-year sentence for molester
ANDERSON (AP) — An Indiana man sentenced to 253 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to 19 counts of child molesting has lost his bid to have his sentence shortened. The Indiana Court of Appeals this week upheld the sentence issued to 39-year-old William Everage Jr. in July 2012 by a Madison County judge. Appeals Court Judge Cale Bradford wrote the sentence was appropriate because the evidence against Everage was overwhelming, The Herald Bulletin reports. The victims' families said Everage manipulated them so he could get close to their children, one of whom is autistic. Most of the abuse occurred while Everage was babysitting the children. Everage told an investigator he started molesting children when he was 17 years old. Everage's girlfriend, 31-year-old Jessica Tooley, said she helped Everage molest children, including her own 11-year-old daughter. In August, Tooley was sentenced to 50 years in prison. Everage and his attorneys argued the court didn't take into enough consideration Everage's admission of guilt and cooperation when deciding on a sentence. Bradford noted that Everage failed to show any remorse or desire to change and that the only way to protect the public from Everage is to lock him up.

Explosion at naval base sends 5 to hospital
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Part of a southern Indiana naval installation was shut down Friday while the military investigated a pyrotechnic facility explosion that injured five employees the previous evening. The explosion happened about 5:40 p.m. Thursday during routine cleanup operations at the Crane naval base facility, about 85 miles southwest of Indianapolis, said Crane Army Ammunition Activity spokesman Tom Peske. The five injured employees were examined and released from the hospital Thursday evening. The blast happened during a cleanup at the facility that produces illumination mortars the military uses to give light to soldiers, Peske said. Employees follow certain procedures to clean up any loose chemical dust at the beginning or end of a production run. Peske said he doesn't know what chemicals are used, but that they are part of the production of the illuminating candles for the mortars. The facility has been shut down as Crane looks into the cause of the explosion. "Safety of all our employees remains our primary concern, so we will do everything possible through the investigation to ensure that a future accident like this won't happen," Peske said.
Purdue Extension announces Gardening Series
By Bob Yoder Purdue Extension Educator Marshall County Purdue Extension Office and Master Gardeners Association are providing and educational series to area gardeners with tips for growing produce in their gardens.  The educational topics will be on starting seeds indoors to maximize growing season; selecting garden space, amending soil, and planning effective plant spacing for it; utilizing row covers, high tunnels, and greenhouses to extend garden season for more produce production; and building a raise bed for better soil properties to increase produce production. The first three sessions will be held at the Plymouth Public Library located at 201 Center Street in Plymouth.  Theses session will start at 6:30 p.m. and conclude at 8 p.m. They will be held in Laramore A meeting room, which can be accessed from the north entrance to the library. The first session on starting seeds indoors and planting in the garden, will be held on Thursday evening, April 11.  Session two, utilizing garden space effectively, will be held on Thursday evening, April 25.  The last session held at the library, extending garden season utilizing row covers, high tunnels, and greenhouses, will be held on Thursday evening, May 9. The fourth session will be a hands-on session where participants will build at raised bed at MoonTree Studios located at 9601 Union Road, Donaldson, IN.  The entrance to MoonTree Studios is located opposite from the main entrance to Ancilla College. The goal for this session is to discuss location of a raised bed, advantages of developing one for gardening, and actually building a raised bed as the hands-on part of the evening.  Since the session will be outside, it will start at 6 p.m. to ensure adequate natural light.  The session will end at 8 p.m.  Raised beds are an effective tool to enhance your home garden production and the session will address utilizing plastic cover to allow season extension as well.

Yoder said it’s best to plant veggies you know you will eat. “Plant vegetables you like and ones that you want to include in your diet,” said Yoder. “Some things are easier to preserve
for use in winter months, and potatoes and tomatoes can be harvested late in the season.”

Questions about Culver Community
Dear Editor, I recently read the unfortunate news in the Culver Citizen concerning the possible job loss of seven to 10 teachers. As a former employee of the Culver Community Schools Corporation, I not only feel sadness but fury as well. As I read the article for a second time it became clear to me that the information provided is somewhat manipulated. A response to this issue is long overdue. The first thing I noticed was the distorted information concerning class sizes. We are led to believe that the elementary school is overstaffed due to the amount of children enrolled. Based on the numbers provided by (Superintendent) Mr. (Brad) Schuldt, the student to teacher ratio is 12:1. Mind you, this does not mean there are only 12 students in each elementary classroom. On the contrary, several elementary classrooms currently have more than 20 students. The elementary houses approximately 500 students and has two administrators. The middle and high schools currently have a student to teacher ratio of 10:1. They only house slightly more than 400 students but require four administrators? Yet it has been made clear that the elementary will feel the greatest loss in teachers. Mr. Schuldt also states that he did not lose 140 kids to Winamac. This may be true; however, there was a loss of 140 students. They didn’t all go to Winamac. Some went to Argos, Rochester, Knox, Plymouth and some are being home schooled. There has been an 11 percent decrease in enrollment in the past two years and I can’t help but wonder why. In my opinion closing Monterey Elementary two years ago was the driving force for parents to seek out other schools. Wasn’t this supposed to prevent a cut in teachers? Isn’t that why many came to support the closing of MES? Wasn’t class size in the elementary a major concern? It doesn’t appear to be much of a concern any longer does it? Again, it was and still is manipulation of information. Mr. Schuldt clearly states that Winamac is currently going through the same thing Culver is. I’m not sure Winamac realizes that. When I called their superintendent’s office, they made it perfectly clear that they have had an increase in enrollment. They also stated they have never RIFed a teacher and everything possible would be done so they would never have to. If you are going to make comparisons, please do us all a favor and make sure what you are claiming is actually true. Back to class size, I would like to give an example of how class sizes could change if teachers are cut. Based on the current number of third-graders enrolled at Culver Elementary, the fourth-grade classes would each have approximately 22 students next year. If a teacher is eliminated at that grade level, class size would increase to 29 students. I am also wondering how many elementary classes Mr. Schuldt has taught to be able to confidently state that five more students per room won’t make much of a difference. Mr. Schuldt should take five students to work with him every day for awhile and see just how much of a difference five more kids can make. Before addressing the comparison made by Mr. Schuldt between administrators and teachers, I want to make something perfectly clear. I am well aware and appreciate the time and effort given by administrators. I just wonder why it isn’t also pointed out how much time and effort teachers give. Just because they are not required by contract to give additional time to their profession certainly does not mean they don’t. The mere fact that this isn’t recognized is a disgrace. Teachers give a huge amount of their time in addition to the regular school day. Not to mention the great amount of pressure that has been put upon them recently. I can only imagine fearing for their jobs also adds a tremendous amount of strain. We are also led to believe that principals visiting classrooms on a regular basis is quite a burden. Did the corporation chose RISE as an evaluation tool? If so, did everyone know that principals were going to be required to make such visits? Wasn’t there an option to make changes to the RISE evaluation? I know of two principals that visited every classroom every day, by choice. The comment made that some teachers may actually make more per hour than some administrators is shocking. Statements like that only leave one to believe that Mr. Schuldt does not have much appreciation for his teaching staff. Let’s take a look at this example. If an administrator works five days a week for 46 weeks, with six weeks vacation time at $108,000 a year, he makes approximately $464 per day. I’ve yet to meet a teacher that makes that kind of money. I find it astonishing that athletics were even mentioned in the same article announcing teacher cuts. Since it was, however, I would like to ask a few questions. Why is the football program commended for being successful yet no mention was made of Culver Elementary being an A school? Why does Mr. Schuldt consider the football program successful at all with a 2012 record of 3-7? Wouldn’t that be a losing season? Why does he imply that the reduction in football coaching staff to one head coach and four assistants is a big sacrifice? I am certain that any teacher with a comparable amount of kids to be responsible for would be elated to have four assistants. I am also astonished that Mr. Schuldt has actually requested adding three paid coaching positions. Two of which are intramural sports. Why on earth would anyone support RIFing teachers and creating paid coaching positions at the same time? I hope I am not the only one that questions if the numbers and statistics given are actually true. More importantly, I hope the school board is not still believing everything they are told. Has everyone involved in this corporation truly done everything possible to prevent losing teachers? Has anyone called area schools to see what they’re doing about declining enrollment or if they even have declining enrollment? I did. Winamac has had an increase in enrollment and also has no intention of cutting teachers. Plymouth has had an increase in enrollment and also has no intention of cutting teachers. Argos, Rochester, and Knox have not experienced a decline in enrollment and have also made no mention of decreasing their teaching staff. Gathering this information took 30 minutes out of my day. It’s so sad someone with influence on those decisions wouldn’t take the time to call for themselves. — Helen Drew Winamac
Some things change, some things stay the same
“When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.” — Patrick Rothfuss There’s not much difference between my childhood self and my adult self. Have you ever noticed that most of the things you enjoyed in childhood stick with you? The only difference is that as adults, we are too “busy” and “stressed” to pay attention to things we used to enjoy — and probably still do. Here are a few examples: • When I was 10 years old, Harrison Ford circa 1977 was the most attractive man in the world. He still is. Don’t ask me how I feel about Harrison Ford circa 2013. • I’d really rather eat when someone else is cooking. All of this make your own meal thing is overrated. • Listening to my dad tell stories is still the best thing ever. As a child I asked him questions that I already knew the answer to because I liked to
Lydia Beers Staff Writer
hear his point of view. I still do that. He will never tell me that he doesn’t know the answer. If he truly doesn’t know, he’ll find out and get back to me. • Reading is still the best way to pass the time. There’s nothing better than a few hours alone to really take in a great book. The best ones are those that you are still thinking about weeks later. The last book I read like that was The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. • I still don’t like to go sledding in the winter. It’s supposed to be “fun” to hike up a huge hill for just 10 seconds of a ride down? Plus, my goal in the
the World
winter is to stay as warm as possible. Sledding is not conducive to that. • Nothing makes me angrier quicker than when my brothers goad me into an argument on purpose. It’s basically the grown-up version of “He’s breathing on me!” If you have adult siblings, you know what I’m talking about. Nothing’s really changed — you just use more sophisticated language now. • It’s still fun to watch cartoons and eat sugary cereal on a Saturday morning. Some of the cartoons they have now are kind of weird but I can definitely get on board with some Tom and Jerry. Some things have changed since I was a kid. When I get money, I don’t spend it on whatever I want. When I watch national news, I get worried instead of bored. I spend more time thinking about how I’m going to raise my future kids than what their names should be. I like peas now. “The future of the U.S. economy” is a subject I can really get into.

New research on concussions raises new questions
By Rusty Nixon Staff Writer
PLYMOUTH — Tragedy has brought the topic to the forefront, and preventing further tragedy has spurred greater research into sports concussions and their effect on long-term health. It is a topic that is as important to local parents as it is in the NFL, and specialists from all over the world met recently in Zurich, Switzerland — at the headquarters of FIFA, the international governing body of soccer — to discuss recent research and developments in dealing with the problem in sports.
“We have seen an increase in the reporting of concussion symptoms, but — with boys especially — we feel like we’re only getting the tip of the iceberg. We feel pretty certain that a lot of symptoms go unnoticed and unreported even though we’re getting more than we used to. We need total cooperation from everybody involved — teammates, coaches, parents — to make sure players aren’t returning to play before they are ready. It used to be that it was a heavy negotiation about allowing a player to return. That has improved dramatically with baseline testing and state law.”
Dr. Stephen Simons, Associate Director of Sports Medicine at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center
Dr. Stephen Simons, Associate Director of Sports Medicine at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center was in attendance at the conference and admitted that he left the conference by all professional sports, but especially the NFL (National Football League),” said Simons. “That’s helped. I mean, we have to admit that everybody always pays attention to the NFL and that has brought about a lot of research and helped involve lots of people to learn more about concussions and their effect on athletes.” Simons says the efforts have resulted in the NFL
and the U.S. Army investing $100 million for research on the subject over the next 10 years. He also hopes that the extra attention will lead to

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Even a nasty cold can’t stop Russ Smith. With his teammates struggling with the virus he gave them and top-seeded Louisville facing its toughest test of the postseason, Russ put on his best show yet. He matched his career high of 31 points and the Cardinals proved they can win close games, too, beating Oregon 77-69 on Friday night. “Without Russ Smith, we couldn’t win,” said Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who improved to 11-0 in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament. Louisville (32-5) moves on to play the winner of Michigan State-Duke on Sunday, hoping to advance to the Final Four for the second straight year. Louisville has been nearly untouchable during its 13-game winning streak, beating opponents by an average of 17 points. And it looked as if this was going to be more of the same when Smith outscored Oregon 9-8 through the first 10 minutes. But the 12th-seeded Ducks (28-9) made a game of it late. After Louisville went up 66-48 with 9:01 left, Oregon made six straight field goals to close to 70-64 — the closest anyone’s been to the Cardinals in weeks. But Kevin Ware scored on a layup and Chane Behanan threw down a monstrous dunk to put the game out of reach. Ware finished with 11, topping his previous career best by one, and Gorgui Dieng had 10 points, nine rebounds and four blocked shots.

Ancilla softball splits home opener
The Ancilla College softball team split a doubleheader with Kellogg Community College, winning the first game 9-4 and losing the second game 7-6. The doubleheader was the Lady Chargers’ first games after returning home from their spring trip in Florida and their first games in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association Western Conference. Courtney Clark picked up the win in game one pitching the complete game and allowing just two earned runs and striking out four. After falling behind in the top of the third inning 1-0, the Chargers answered in the bottom of the frame with three runs. Plymouth product Marissa Sullivan ripped a two-RBI double to start the scoring and Rohni Beck added a RBI with an infield single. Kellogg tied the game up in the top of the fifth at 3-3, but Ancilla added a big six run bottom of the fifth, capped off
by RBIs from Courtney Henning, Shelby McConnell, Emily Wilbur, and Clark. Kellogg capped off the scoring with an unearned run in the top of the seventh, giving Ancilla the 9-4 victory. In game two, the host Chargers played catch-up for the entire game. The Bruins took the lead in the first with an unearned run, then added two more runs in the second to take a 3-0 lead. That lead held until the bottom of the fifth, when Ancilla tied the game with a two-RBI double from Kayleigh Schroeder and an RBI single from Sullivan. Kellogg bounced back with two in the top of the sixth to take a 5-3 lead, but the resilient Chargers added another run in the bottom of the sixth on a Schroeder RBI single to make the score 5-4. The Bruins stretched their lead to 7-4 in the top of the seventh. Ancilla made one more effort in the bottom of the seventh, scoring two runs, but it just wasn’t enough, as Kellogg came away with a 7-6 win. Sullivan was 5-8 on the day with three RBI, while
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Trey Burke never doubted he could lead Michigan to its deepest NCAA tournament run since the Fab Five era. Not after a scoreless first half. Not when the Wolverines trailed top-seeded Kansas by 14 with less than 7 minutes left — or by 5 with 21 seconds left. And definitely not when he got the ball in his hands and the seconds draining away. Burke scored all 23 of his points in the second half and overtime, including a long, tying 3-pointer in the final moments of regulation as Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 in the South Regional semifinals Friday night. “We never lost faith out there,” Burke said. “We stuck it out together.” Ben McLemore had 20 points to lead the Jayhawks (31-6), who looked to be on their way to a third straight regional final before Michigan’s improbable rally. Instead, they became the third No. 1 seed to fall in this tournament, joining Gonzaga and Indiana. “Well, this will certainly go down as one of the toughest games that obviously we’ve been a part of and I’ve been a part of,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “But props to Michigan for making all the plays late.” That’s for sure. The fourth-seeded Wolverines (29-7) were down five when Tim Hardaway Jr. missed a 3-pointer with 35 seconds left, but Glenn Robinson III won a scramble for the ball and hit a reverse layup to force Kansas to win the game at the free throw line. The Jayhawks couldn’t do it. Burke’s tying shot — he pulled up from well beyond the arc just left of the key — came with 4.2 seconds left after Elijah Johnson missed a free throw and Michigan got the rebound. Moments earlier, with 21 seconds remaining, Johnson had hit two from the line to keep the Kansas lead at five. Burke had scored on a layup to get Michigan back to within three. “We never had the mindset that we were going to lose the game,” Burke said. “When we were down 14, we knew anything could still happen. It’s March, anything can happen.” Michigan went to back-to-back championship games a generation ago with the Fab Five led by Chris Webber, Juwan Howard and Jalen Rose. But the folks in Ann Arbor will be talking for years about the shot by Burke under the huge video board Cowboys Stadium, just down the road from where Howard and Rose played their last game together with Ray Jackson and Jimmy King in a regional final loss to Arkansas in 1994. The Wolverines will play the Florida-Florida Gulf Coast

winner the regional final Sunday. “Just to be able to get this program back to the Elite Eight, it feels good,” Burke said. “But we want to go further.” The lead changed hands five times in overtime — the first OT game of the tournament — the last when Mitch McGary, who led Michigan with 25 points and 14 rebounds, hit a short jumper with Johnson in his face to put Michigan ahead 83-82. The Jayhawks got a stop and had about 9 seconds to tie or win, but a jumbled possession ended with Naadir Tharpe missing a running jumper at the buzzer. “We played like we were trying to hold onto something instead of just continuing to play,” Johnson said. Burke had eight points in the closing 14-4 run that tied the game, then gave Michigan its first lead since early with another long 3-pointer to make it 79-78 early in overtime. He hit a jumper on the next possession as well. After failing to score in the first 20 minutes, Burke ended his drought by scoring eight straight points early in the second half to momentarily cut the deficit to two. “In the second half, coach told me to be more aggressive so I looked for my shot more,” he said. But Kansas restored a 10-point lead built on controlling the paint, this time with a 3-pointer and a tomahawk dunk on a breakaway by McLemore and a threepoint play from Johnson. Johnson, who picked up three fouls in just three minutes of playing time in the first half, gave Kansas its biggest lead at 68-54 with a 3-pointer from the corner with just under 7 minutes left. Travis Releford had 16 points for the Jayhawks, while Jeff Withey had 12 points and eight rebounds. McLemore didn’t score again after going to the bench with his fourth foul with 8 minutes remaining. “We had chance to seal the game, but we made some bonehead plays late,” Releford said. Kansas pushed out to a 10-point lead early by dominating around the basket. McLemore’s first basket was the first outside the paint as the Jayhawks scored 34 of their 40 first-half points from inside while shooting 69 percent.

Plymouth Adult Softball
PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Adult Softball League is looking for teams or individuals that would looking for some exercise and a chance to enjoy a dwindling outdoor American pastime. League play starts the first week of June and runs through the middle of August. Complete teams are needed for men’s and coed slow pitch. The league is offering to reduce church teams’ entry fees to $175.

The league is ASA sanctioned but will permit the use of either ASA or NSA equipment for the 2013 season, including bats. To learn more, contact Ed at 574-780-6865 Monday through Saturday.
Withey put Kansas ahead 29-19 with a turnaround shot that had McGary shrugging at a teammate and saying, “I’m trying.” McGary wasn’t having nearly as much trouble on the offensive end, leading the Wolverines with 11 points and five rebounds in the first half. He picked up where he left off in the third round against Virginia Commonwealth, when he had season highs of 21 points and 14 rebounds. Michigan pulled within 40-34 at the half when Nik Stauskas hit a 3-pointer and had chance for a fourpoint play when McLemore bumped him on the shot. But he missed the free throw. No matter. In the end, Burke was Fab-u-lous and the Wolverines are one win away from the Final Four.

“Russ Smith is a talented young man. They’ve got a lot of talented players,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “When he got going, we didn’t have an answer.” E.J. Singler’s 15 points led five Ducks in double figures. But Damyean Dotson had an off night, held without a field goal until five minutes were gone in the second half, and Oregon could never recover from its poor start. Early foul trouble didn’t help, with Johnathan Loyd picking up his third before halftime and Dominic Artis and Carlos Emory playing the last six minutes of the half with two. “If it wasn’t for the beginning, it would have been a completely different game,” Loyd said. “We just came out, we weren’t ready and we got smacked. If we were playing the way were playing in the second half the whole game, it’s a completely different story.” The Cardinals were barely tested in either of their first two games in the NCAA tournament, beating North Carolina A&T by 31 and Colorado State by 26. They set an NCAA tournament record with 20 steals against A&T, outrebounded one of the country’s best rebounding teams in Colorado State and left both teams with ugly shooting lines. But that hacking cough that Smith has had the last few days is making its way around the Louisville team, and it was clear from the start this wasn’t going to be another juggernaut performance by the Cardinals. Peyton Siva spent the last 15:19 of the first half on the bench after picking up his second foul, and Louisville wasn’t nearly as stingy on defense as it’s been. The Cardinals (13) actually had more turnovers than the Ducks (12), and Oregon is only the third team to shoot 44 percent or better during Louisville’s winning streak. “We’ve been a great defensive team — not a good one, a great one — all season,” Pitino said. “Tonight, their quickness was so good, all it did was wear us out defensively. But we had Russ Smith and Kevin really bail us out of some situations that could have gone either way.” After Siva went out, Smith hit a 3 to spark a 14-3 run that put Louisville up 24-8. “We really dug ourselves a big hole,” Singler said. “We tried to figure back as much as possible, but Louisville’s a really, really good team. They just played better than us today.” But the Ducks aren’t a team that gives in. After losing six of their last 11 regular-season games, the Ducks have been on a tear. They won the Pac-12 tournament, then upset Oklahoma State and Saint Louis last weekend. After Luke Hancock’s 3 capped a 12-2 run that put Louisville up 66-48, the Ducks would make six straight field goals. When Dotson knocked down a jumper with 5:12 remaining, it got Oregon within six, the closest it had been since early in the first half. Closest anyone had been to Louisville since the Big East tournament, actually. “We’ve been in that position before this year,” Singler said. But part of what makes

Men’s college track
Corsbie competes for Bethel
Plymouth alum Kent Corsbie earned a runner-up finish in the triple jump as the Bethel College track and field team won the Goshen College Invitational recently. Corsbie recorded a 39’5” to place second in the triple jump, one of seven runners-up for Bethel, which tallied 201 points to beat out host Goshen, which finished with 141 points.
the Cardinals so imposing is their maturity and their options, which seem endless. Instead of panicking, the Cardinals regrouped and regained control, and the Ducks never threatened again. “I told our guys, ‘We don’t have it tonight. It’s obvious,’” Pitino said. “We’re winning with offense and that’s great, but we’ve got to start digging in and getting stops. We did it at the end.” Ware brought a halt to the Oregon run with his layup and then came Behanan’s dunk. Smith made a pair of free throws, and the only question was whether the Ducks could get back within single digits before the buzzer. “(Smith) made big plays,” Altman said. “When you let a good team like Louisville be the aggressor, they’re tough to beat.” Even with colds. “Coach has been telling me to fight through it, fight through it, dig in. My teammates as well,” Smith said. “We’re fighting through it and just doing whatever we can to get a win.”

another result locally.
Greater reporting of the injury
The common culture of sports in regard to all injuries has always been summed up in the phrase “...shake it off and get back out there.” Better information has made the impact that — with concussions anyway — that is a dangerous mindset. “We have seen an increase in the reporting of concussion symptoms but — with boys especially — we feel like we’re only getting the tip of the iceberg,” said Simons. “We feel pretty certain that a lot of symptoms go unnoticed and unreported even though we’re getting more than we used to. We need total cooperation from everybody involved — teammates, coaches, parents — to make sure players aren’t returning to play before they are ready. It used to be that it was a heavy
negotiation about allowing a player to return. That has improved dramatically with baseline testing and state law.” Thanks to recent legislation, return to competition must be given by a healthcare professional trained in the subject of concussions. The okay of a coach or athletic trainer is no longer enough. “Obviously the first thing you do if you suspect a concussion is remove the athlete from the risk of another,” said Simons. “One thing we need to do a better job of is once a concussion is diagnosed, the athlete needs complete physical rest but cognitive rest too. The schools are going to have to help us on this, freeing them from homework, school work, all cognitive activity to let the brain come back to activity slowly. “After that some physical activity has actually been proven to be beneficial, like
riding a stationary bike, but before they return to actual competition they need to complete the appropriate tests.”
Questions still need to be answered
Much more is known about the long-term affects on the brain of sports concussions, the worst of which is multiple chronic traumatic encephalopathy — brought to national attention with suicides of NFL players Dave Duerson and Junior Seau. Simons admitted that he left the Zurich conference “...with as many unanswered questions.” “How many concussions are too many?” was one such question for the Doctor, “What is the affect of all the jostles and what we call ‘sub-concussive’ hits? Maybe you don’t suffer a full concussion, but what is the consequence of the multiple smaller hits? Currently there is no research on that topic so the answer is a complete unknown.” “Is there a genetic factor involved?” is another question for Simons. “There is some suggestion that some individuals are
genetically more susceptible to concussion than others, but once again the amount of research is very small and I’m not sure I see a day when you’ll need to have your child genetically tested in order to play football.” Simons is excited about the research in biomarkers to determine concussions — blood tests, tests on spinal fluid and the like — that will allow doctors to determine concussion without other tests. “We’ve got to cut down on the emergency room visits and CAT scans on young adults,” he said. “There is far too much radiation in kids today, and we need to keep those kind of tests to a minimum.” The Doctor is also encouraged by technological developments. “Computer tests have become much better in helping us determine if an athlete has returned to baseline,” said Simons.
still needs to be done in some areas. “Rule changes can still have a big effect,” he said. “The NFL has documented a drastic drop in concussions among special teams players with the change of their kickoff rule and more of that needs to happen.” He says that equipment also is a factor, but players need to be wary of false claims. “We need to keep doing the research to improve equipment like helmets,” he said. “But there are some products out there that are being aggressively marketed as deterrents, but there is no scientific evidence to support the claim. The head bands they sell for soccer are an example. There is actually research to suggest that they make the (concussion) problem worse, so you need to be careful of the claims some equipment makers are making.”
Prevention is still a priority
Parents are the key

“Parents are the best to observe if their child might need to be tested for concussion,” he said. “You’re looking for any sort of change in behavior — any emotional differences, changes in attention span. Fatigue is a big issue, are they suddenly going to bed at a time they’ve never gone to bed before? Irritability. Anything you notice that is different. Are they suddenly more quiet than usual. I had one athlete that was normally almost mute who suddenly became a ‘chatty Kathy’. Parents are in an excellent position to observe those things. “If you notice those things at the very least have them evaluated before returning to an at-risk situation.” There are extensive tests used by doctors and athletic trainers to determine if an athlete has a concussion and its severity, but a simple checklist for parents can be helpful. Problems could arise in the first 24 to 48 hours of suffering a concussion, and if they do the athlete should not be left alone and should go to the hospital immediately if they exhibit any of the following symptoms: - Have a headache that gets worse - Are very drowsy or can’t be awakened - Can’t recognize people or places - Have repeated vomiting - Behave unusually or seem confused, are very irritable - Have seizures (arms and/or legs jerk uncontrollably) - Have weak or numb arms or legs - Are unsteady on their feet; have slurred speech

It’s a familiar story that you have heard before. Someone tells you they have some good news and some bad news. You ask to hear the good news first. The resurrection is not only the Good News, it is the best news imaginable. As a community of believers in the resurrection promise that death does not have the last word, we will gather on Easter Sunday to celebrate the best news imaginable! We will gather to acknowledge that our Lord’s resurrection makes it impossible for man’s story to end in chaos. Instead, it moves toward the light, toward life, toward love. If I were to ask you to describe Easter without using any words, and you could use only punctuation marks, which would you choose to describe this Easter for yourself? Maybe this Easter is a comma for you. It makes you stop, pause, think, and listen, but that’s about it. Or, I hope not, but perhaps today is a downer — a big bold period.

It was an end to their expectations. But wait — there is good news of an empty tomb. The guards are gone, the stone is rolled away. An angel speaks, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but he has risen. That’s what Easter is all about! An exclamation of gratitude and of praise for the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and of the salvation his victory over death has brought us.

Boning up on calcium facts
Q: I’m 45 and healthy, but I want to make sure I don’t get osteoporosis when I’m older. Should I be taking calcium supplements now, or is that risky? — Shirley L., Fresno, Calif. A: Good question! There’s been a lot of news about the risks and benefits of calcium supplements for men and women, and that’s got some folks wondering whether to continue with the supplements they’re already taking. Today, 43 percent of the U.S. population pops a daily pill that contains some calcium. A consistent level of calcium (and magnesium, plus D-3) is necessary for healthy nerves, muscles and organs, not to mention bone strength. Chances are you need a D-3
supplement: 1,000 IU a day is what we take, and we have an annual blood test to make sure our levels are 50-80. And a supplement of 600 mg of calcium with 300 mg of magnesium daily is safe to take and may provide benefits. But you can get too much of a good thing from calcium supplements. One study showed men 50-71 who take a 1,000 mg daily calcium supplement increase their risk of dying from heart disease by 20 percent. The reason? Calcium gets into
the lining of the blood vessels, making arteries stiffer. However, 1,000 mg calcium a day from food is part of a bone and heart-friendly diet. (Over 70? Go for 1,200 mg a day from food.) And the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recently announced calcium supplements may not be the right choice for women who want to protect their bones. There just isn’t proof that a daily supplement of 400 IU or less of vitamin D-3 and less than 1,000 mg of calcium prevents bone fractures. Are larger doses of calcium helpful or risky? No one knows yet. So women 19-50 should aim for 1,000 mg of calcium a day from food; women 51 and older, 1,200 mg calcium from food and 1,000 IU D-3 from a supplement.

DEAR ABBY: There’s this guy I like, “Joey.” My sister likes him, too. Joey and I are not dating, although we are very close friends. My sister (of course) decided to ask him out on a date. I’m so upset with her. It has been two days since their date and I’m still not talking to her. I can’t believe she asked him out when she knew I was about to. I don’t want to ruin our relationship, but Joey is now into her. Please give me some advice before I do something terribly wrong. — BY JEANNE PHILLIPS CAN’T TAKE IT IN FLORIDA DEAR CAN’T TAKE IT: If your sister jumped in knowing you were interested in Joey, it was sneaky and wrong. But you have nothing to gain by declaring war over it. Keep your options open and bide your time. With luck, their romance will blow over — and when it does, if you have maintained your position as Joey’s “close friend,” you can make your move then. It may take nerves of steel, but I have faith in you, and it will be worth it in the long run. ****** DEAR ABBY: I lost my mom last year. It was unexpected, and my father and I are still hurting. Mom had a friend who never
By Tony Rizzo HOLLYWOOD — Ryan Gosling is taking time off from acting to direct “How to Catch a Monster,” which he also wrote. Ryan cast his “The Place Beyond the Pines” co-star Eva Mendes as the female lead in the film ... and his personal life! The film also stars Bradley Cooper and Aussie actor Ben Mendelsohn, last in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Mendelsohn joins Christina Hendricks and the current “Dr. Who,” Matt Smith, in Gosling’s “Monster” movie. In addition, Ryan has “Only God Forgives,” with Kristin Scott Thomas, ready for release. *** Ecstatic to hear that “Hot in Cleveland” castmates Betty White and Georgia Engel will have a reunion with Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” It will be the first time they’ve all worked together since 1977. The threesome will play members of White and Engel’s old bowling team, GLOB (the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling). The special episode will be filmed in April. *** BITS & PIECES: When “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” passed the $200 million mark, producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick announced they’re planning a sequel. ... Speaking of sequels, Halle Berry will join Sir Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Michael Fassbender, Ellen Page, James McAvoy and this year’s best actress Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” ... Six-time Emmy winner Bob Newhart makes a rare TV guest appearance on the May 2 episode of “The Big Bang Theory” as Professor Proton, the former host of Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) favorite childhood science show.

Sisters square off over boy both would like to date
Dear Abby
fails to tell me how the loss of her mother and her husband was much more painful for her than my loss. Every time I have the unfortunate luck of answering the phone when she calls, she’ll ask how I’m doing, then launch into how hard it was on her and I don’t know the true pain that she does. I am sick of people telling me they understand how I feel and what I’m going through. No one knows the depth of what I’m experiencing, except maybe my sibling. I moved back home to take care of my wonderful mother. She was my best friend. I could tell her anything and she was never judgmental. I love her and I hurt from her loss. Please tell people when offering condolences to just listen and be there. That’s what anyone who suffers a loss needs more than anything. Do not compare your pain to theirs. And Abby, please know how sorry I am for the loss of your own dear mother, and thank you for letting me vent. — HOLE IN MY HEART IN OCEAN SPRINGS, MISS. DEAR HOLE IN YOUR HEART: I’m sorry for your loss, too, and you’re welcome. Please know that no rule of etiquette says you have to listen to that woman’s insensitive prattle. The next time she starts, it is perfectly acceptable to stop her cold and tell her that when she compares her pain to yours she is being insensitive, and that if she does it one more time you will hang up. Clearly, she is not calling to see how you’re doing; she is calling to dump. There are times when you must protect yourself, and this is one of them.
Celebrity Extra
By Cindy Elavsky Q: One of my favorite character actors is Michael O’Neill. I especially enjoyed him as Special Agent Butterfield in “The West Wing,” and as distraught widower Gary Clark in “Grey’s Anatomy.” What is he up to now? — Patrick G. in Connecticut A: Michael co-stars in the new Sundance Channel original drama called “Rectify,” a six-episode series that begins April 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. He plays Sen. Roland Foulkes, who rose to great political heights on the heels of what turns out to be the wrongful prosecution and imprisonment of Daniel Holden for rape and murder, for which he is exonerated after serving 19 years on death row. When I spoke with Michael recently, he told me about his new role: “On the one hand, it’s so delicious to play a guy who’s Machiavellian, and you want to make him more evil, more manipulative. You just want to go down that rabbit hole. “But I don’t think that’s true (to his character). I think he feels like he’s been a public servant. He answers to the people. He felt the pulse of the town and what they wanted. They wanted a retribution for the act, so he went about making sure that they were satisfied. And it didn’t hurt — clearly my character’s a political ani-

mal. There’s a certain hunger in him to be the top dog. At the end of the day, there’s a certain self-serving that takes over.” *** Q: I love actress Laura Dern and her HBO series “Enlightened.” Will it be back for another season? — Jerry U., via e-mail A: HBO recently announced the “very difficult decision” of deciding to cancel the struggling comedy series after two seasons. “Enlightened,” which was created by Laura and co-star Mike White, was critically acclaimed but struggled with ratings. Even a Laura’s Golden Globe win for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, as well as co-stars like Luke Wilson and Diane Ladd, couldn’t save the show. *** Q: Please tell me that TBS will continue to produce new episodes of “Cougar Town” after this season. — Darla W., Birmingham, Ala. A: I am happy to report that TBS has renewed “Cougar Town” for a 13-episode fifth season. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
