INDIANAPOLIS — A
months-long investigation
into
former
Indiana
schools Superintendent
Tony Bennett’s use of
state staff and resources
during his 2012 re-election
campaign found ample
evidence to support federal wire fraud charges,
according to a copy of the
95-page report viewed by
The Associated Press.
Despite the recommendation that charges be pursued, Bennett has never
faced prosecution for such
allegations — which could
have carried up to 20 years
in prison.
The report, completed
by the Indiana inspector
general’s office in February, said that an investigator found more than 100
instances in which Bennett or his employees violated federal wire fraud
law.
That
contrasts
sharply with an eight-page
formal report issued in
July that said the office
found minimal violations,
resulting in a $5,000 fine
and an admonishment
that Bennett could have
rewritten rules to allow
some campaign work on
state time.
Inspector General David
Thomas, who is leaving
office this month, did not
explain the discrepancies
in a brief email Tuesday,
but said the investigation
was submitted to state and
federal prosecutors. However, the full report compiled from the six-month
investigation, which is
closely guarded, clearly
shows that Thomas’ investigator believed grounds
existed
for
charges
against Bennett.
Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry, tasked
with investigating corruption at the Statehouse,
said his investigators
determined the evidence
against Bennett was “minimal” and “inappropriate
to pursue any type of
criminal charges.” He
added that the inspector
general’s own punishment
made it less likely for his
office to pursue charges.
A spokesman for the
U.S. attorney’s office
declined comment Tuesday.
Bennett,
who
has
repeatedly denied any
wrongdoing, told the AP
that the matter was closed
and that he had no comment.

Park board member Kristi Betts speaks at Tuesday night’s meeting as member Shauna Runkle listens. Members
made no changes to the pool design, despite requests from Jay County Summer Swim Team. The board plans to revisit the
issue at its next meeting.
Board holds off on modifying pool’s depth
By SAMM QUINN
The Commercial Review
Emotions ran high at Tuesday’s park board meeting.
But Portland Park Board
made no changes to the design
of Portland Water Park,
despite requests from the Jay
County Summer Swim Team.
Members plan to revisit the
issue at the board’s next meeting, which has not yet been
scheduled.
The board unveiled a design
for the new water park —
which includes a lap pool that
is 42 inches deep in its shallow
end and 6 feet deep where the
starting blocks are located —
at its Nov. 11 meeting.
Since then, representatives
of the summer swim team
have expressed concerns about
the design because it is not
deep enough for young swimmers to dive into the shallow
end based on USA Swimming
standards.
Before Tuesday’s meeting,
park board members and representatives from the swim
team worked to tweak the
design to make the lap pool’s
shallow end 48 inches deep,
which would allow for diving
starts.
That new design would cost
an additional $268,000.
Park board member Donald
Gillespie told a packed room he
met with Rob Weaver and Steve
Arnold — who were representing the swim team — Tuesday
morning and they endorsed
the revamped design. Gillespie
also talked to the other park
board members (Rod Ashman,
Shauna Runkle, Kristi Betts
and Holly Tonak), who agreed
to make the changes.
But a letter to the editor
from Weaver, who also serves
as the co-chair of the water
park’s fundraising committee,
in Tuesday’s edition of The
Commercial Review, compromised park board’s willingness to make the changes to
the design. The letter, which
stated the swim team did not
endorse the pool design and it
was not a first class facility,
was submitted Monday morning before an agreement
between park board and the
swim team was made.
At Tuesday’s meeting, Weaver apologized for the letter and
said those statements would no
longer be true with the new
design.

Geneva council OKs Hanni work
By RAY COONEY
The Commercial Review
GENEVA — Upgrades
are coming for the Hanni
Building and the town’s
emergency warning siren.
Geneva Town Council
approved Tuesday leveling
the floor of the Hanni
Building to allow for better use by the fire department and purchasing a
new emergency warning
siren. But it decided to
take
a
wait-and-see
approach on a request for
funds for the proposed
Connect to Careers organization.
It also heard about the
hiring process for a new
school resource officer
and acquiring military
surplus computers, and
said goodbye to an outgoing board member.
Clerk-treasurer
Bill
Warren told the board the
fire department asked that
the floor in a section of the
Hanni Building be leveled
to allow more room for
vehicle storage and other
uses. The building, which
at one time was a movie
theatre and has a sloped
floor, was purchased by
the town and became part
of the fire department in
2012.
Board members Dick
Clutter, Doug Milligan and
Jim Timmons unanimously selected a bid of $5,850
from Taylor Made Exteriors for the work. Money for
the project will come from
the 2015 budget.
Other bids were $6,100
from Schwartz Construction and $8,965 from Limberlost Construction.
The board also unanimously approved replacing
the emergency warning
siren in downtown Geneva
on the recommendation
from John August of
Adams County Emergency
Management.
August told the board six
sirens in the county —
three in Decatur, two in
Berne and one in Geneva —
need to be replaced because
of their age. Adams County
Council had already agreed
to pay two-thirds of the cost
to replace each siren.
The new sirens will cost
$1,948, with the Town of
Geneva paying $649.34.
Clutter, Milligan and
Timmons also heard a
request from Trois Hart of
Connect to Careers for a
$4,000 per year commitment for five years. The
new non-profit organization has a goal of facilitating connections between
residents and workforce
resources, such as those
provided by Work One.
While expressing support, the board decided to
wait for Adams County’s
decision before discussing
its own contribution. The
county has been asked for
$50,000 per year, which
would cover 40 percent of
the Connect to Careers
annual budget.

Group hears presentations
By KELLY LYNCH
The Commercial Review
Sitting in the front row of Jay
County Courthouse’s auditorium, members of the county’s
confined feeding operation
study commission went back to
school.
The commission heard presentations Tuesday from Indiana Department of Natural
Resources and Indiana Department of Environmental Management officials, who educated
members about issues pertaining to ground water in the county as well as state regulations on
CFOs and CAFOs (concentrated
animal feeding operations).
Joe Williams, IDEM CFO permit section chief, covered the
basics of what areas of the operations the state regulates before
answering questions on topics
ranging from manure application to how much control the
county can ultimately have in
regulating farms.
Jay County has the thirdlargest total of IDEM-regulated
farms in Indiana at 92, with 41
CFOs and 51 CAFOs, explained
Williams.
The biggest concern for residents was the regulation of
manure application, as operators are allowed to set solid
manure in a field for 90 days
before applying it, if it is surrounded by a berm or covered,
according to IDEM.
Commission members asked
whether the county would be
able to put a shorter time limit
in its ordinance and whether it
would supercede state standard.
“If we address it, then local
government
cannot,”
said
Steven Howell, IDEM Office of
Government and Community
Affairs director, of his interpretation of the state’s control. “It’s
not as clear cut as other
statutes. … The state will regulate how something is done and
the county can regulate where it
takes place.”

“It was written at a
time when we felt there
was no hope of coming to
a compromise with the
park board about the
depth of the pool and our
only hope was to try and
gain additional support
from the community,” he
said. “With the new
design the pool would
indeed be a first class
facility.”
After the design was
unveiled in November,
park board members
received text messages
and saw social media
posts, including some
that encourage people to
take back their donations
to the pool, Ashman said.
Tuesday’s letter to the
editor also inspired calls,
text messages and emails
to park board members
from members of the
community
who
are
unhappy the pool design
may change to meet the
swim team’s requests.
“This letter was not
only ill advised, it was
not even warranted,” said
Gillespie. “I’ve been
betrayed, I’ve been hurt
…”
He said he wouldn’t
make any vote regarding
the design of the pool
‘It’s not worth it
to fight with you,
and we’re not going
to fight with you.
Here’s the deal,
we’re going to give
you a pool and you
can swim in it or
you don’t swim in it.’
—Rod Ashman
Portland Park Board president
because he was too emotional to do so fairly.
“I’ve got to reevaluate
everything, but I will
make my vote according
to 21,000 people not 125
members of the swim
team,” Gillespie said. “It
will be based off what’s
best for this community,
and I don’t know what
that is right now.”
Runkle said 42 inches is
safe for swimming and
noted that some other
pools in the area, including those in Fort Recovery
and Berne, are just as
shallow or more shallow
than what the current
design calls for.
“We were not designing
an unsafe pool,” she said.
“HWC would never design
an unsafe pool and we
would never approve one.”
Ashman said the 42inch depth was chosen
because it allows for the
greatest variety of activities and because the
board is designing a pool
for the entire community
to use.
“It’s not worth it to fight
with you, and we’re not
going to fight with you,”
he said. “Here’s the deal,
we’re going to give you a
pool and you can swim in
it or you don’t swim in it.”
Ashman only allowed
Weaver to speak Tuesday
night, which upset many
meeting attendees. Many
continued to comment,
and some shouted at Ashman.
Weaver then asked that
attendees to be respectful
of park board members.
Gillespie requested the
park board not vote on the
proposed changes because
emotions would likely get
in the way, and board
members — except Ashman — agreed. They plan
to revisit the issue at their
next meeting.
The meeting should
have been a celebration,
Runkle said, because they
reached a compromise
that would make everyone
happy but park board
members now feel defeated.
“We were excited about
it until all this crap came
out,” she said. “If I hear
one more thing, if I see
one more thing on Facebook, any of us, we’re
done.
“We’ve been beaten and
beaten and beaten.”

Bennett’s use of state
resources during his failed
2012 re-election campaign
came under scrutiny after
the AP reported in September 2013 that Bennett had
kept multiple campaign
databases on Department
of Education servers and
that his calendar listed
more than 100 instances of
“campaign calls” during
regular work hours. The
AP also reported that Bennett had ordered his staff to
dissect a speech by his
Democratic opponent for
inaccuracies — in apparent
violation of Indiana election and ethics laws.
Bennett, a protege of former Indiana Gov. Mitch
Daniels and former Florida
Gov. Jeb Bush, resigned as
Florida’s schools chief in
August 2013 after the AP
published emails showing
he had overhauled Indiana’s “A-F” school grading
system to benefit a charter
school run by a prominent
Republican donor.
those with a capacity of at least 70
gallons per minute — affecting
ground water levels and what residents can do if their domestic
wells are affected.
Most high-capacity facilities are
used for industry or public supply,
said Basch. Jay County has 15 registered, with one labeled for agriculture use.
Basch explained that if residents’ wells are affected by one of
these facilities, they have recourse
through the DNR to demand reasonable compensation for any losses. This can be in the form of an
upgraded well to restore it to the
original capability or immediate
help in receiving an adequate supply of potable water.
If the problems are repeated, the
DNR can then restrict the use of
ground water by the facility.
“There’s potential, with say
Hoosier Pride coming in, there’s a
potential that there could be an
impact on surrounding domestic
wells, but again it’s relative,” said
Basch. “They don’t have the capacity we see in other locations … but
an area that has a limited availability for somebody who lives
nearby, that could potentially
affect their life.”

Cellphone photos are
reason for insecurity
DEAR ABBY: I was
divorced three years ago
and have had a boyfriend,
“Roger,” for a year and a
half. He is seven years
younger,
and
he’s
intrigued with women on
the Internet.
He saves tons of photos
of these girls on his cellphone. These ladies are
“perfect.” They have big
breasts and curvaceous
behinds, etc. I have had
two kids. I’m not overweight and I exercise and
keep myself in shape, but I
have a “Mom body.”
Roger has told me he
loves my body and everything about me. But the
feeling I get is that he
wishes I looked like those
girls.
I have asked Roger not
to save these photos
because it makes me insecure. If he’s going to look,
fine. But saving them is
another thing. He promised me he wouldn’t, but
some of them are still
there. So he not only
makes me feel like a fatty,
but he lies to me, too. He
has more pictures of other
girls than he does of me.
Now I no longer feel
comfortable undressing in
front of him. I leave my
clothes half-on and turn
out the lights when we
have sex. He has made me
unable to stand myself.
What do I do? — CAN'T
COMPARE IN CALIFORNIA
Dear
Abby
D EAR CAN ' T CO M PARE: The first thing to do
would be to stop looking at
your boyfriend’s cellphone. Then ask yourself
whether he has been seeing other women or just
collecting pictures. If it’s
the for mer, you have something to worry about. If
it’s the latter, it’s no reflection on you, and he has
voyeuristic
tendencies
(men are visual).
S top making comparis ons. He says he loves
your body. Unless you have
a solid reason to think differently, believe him.
You are overdue for a
frank talk with Roger, and
when you do, tell him
everything you have written to me. Your problem
may go deeper than his
photo g allery and your
lowered self-image. If you
can’t trust what he tells
you, the f oundation of
your relations hip isn’ t
solid.
DEAR ABBY: I’m carrying a heavy burden concerning my 14-year-old
grandson. He told me in
strictest confidence that
he had sex with a 14-yearold girl. I have been his
male support system,
mentor, adviser, disciplinarian and friend for 12
years because his father is
rarely in the picture.
He swore me to secrecy,
which I want to respect,
but I’m torn about telling
my daughter. She has a
right to know that her son
is sexually active and
needs closer supervision.
We discussed condoms
(they used them), accidental pregnancy, possible
criminal charges and
responsibility, but I think
he is more proud than
alert to the possible consequences.
If I share this with my
daughter, I break a longheld trust. When I urged
him to tell his mother, he
refused. What do I do?
This is tearing me up. —
KANSAS GRANDPA
DEAR GRANDPA: Without betrayi ng the confi dence, start talking to
your daughter about how,
at 1 4 , h e r s on i s f a s t
becoming a man with all
that it entails, including
r a g i ng h o r m o n e s . T h e n
s ug ges t s he have s om e
frank talks with the boy
and keep a closer eye on
him, unless she wants to
become a g randma before
he’s out of high school.

Travels included odd musical mix
By JACK RONALD
The Commercial Review
“Who put this mix together?”
asked my wife.
She wasn’t talking about a
snack of nuts and pretzels. She
was talking about the music.
We were sitting at the Dayton
airport on Wednesday afternoon,
waiting for the first of two flights
that we hoped would get us to
Boston for a Thanksgiving visit
with our grandchildren.
And the music playing in the
airport was, to put it mildly, a little weird.
At first, I’d noticed some vintage rock and roll that was a
pleasant change from the stuff
that usually plays in the background in public places.
Then the tunes turned a little
funkier.
By the time my wife asked her
question, it sounded as if we were
listening to one of those “greatest
Back
in the
Saddle
hits” party collections that are
sold on late night TV.
Some of the tunes were individually OK, but the mix followed
no logic that we could figure out.
One passenger getting off his
plane actually did a few dance
moves to an ’80s disco beat before
his girlfriend told him to knock it
off.
And the odd soundtrack
seemed to follow us the rest of the
Thanksgiving weekend.
When our Newark connection
was delayed by an hour, the airline re-routed us through Chica-
go. But as we waited, watching
the river of travelers moving
through O’Hare, the music being
played was just as odd a mixture
as we had encountered in Dayton.
And when we finally arrived in
Boston — about four hours later
than we’d planned — the same
airport DJ seemed to be in control.
“Chuck Berry’s playing in the
men’s room,” I told my wife as we
waited for a ride to our hotel.
Surely, we thought, we’re done
with that bit of pop music
menagerie.
But at breakfast the next morning, the weirdness of the playlist
was turned up a notch.
At first, I couldn’t believe my
ears.
Was that really the Ray Conniff
Singers warbling “All I Want for
Christmas Is My Two Front
Teeth”?
It was.
And no sooner had the toothless Conniff gang finished than
Willie Nelson started nasally
crooning another forgotten holiday anthem. Willie Nelson?
Singing Christmas songs? The
old outlaw must have been in
desperate need of a payday when
he recorded that batch.
The random holiday mix continued as we headed to the elevator. Willie wrapped things up
and was followed by Louis Armstrong — Satchmo himself —
giving us his version of “White
Christmas.”
Apparently, every entertainer
in the world has at some time or
another recorded a Christmas
album; and, apparently, the tape
loop at our hotel had a sample
from each of them.
Fortunately, there was no
canned background music for
most of the Thanksgiving weekend. Grandchildren — a 4-year-
old, a 15-month-old and one who
will celebrate his first birthday
on Christmas Eve — provided all
the entertainment either of us
could ask for.
And by the time we got back to
Dayton on Sunday night, I’d
pretty much forgotten the airport and hotel background
music.
But then, when we were waiting for the shuttle bus to take us
to the economy parking lot, I
heard The Kinks.
Ba-da-da-da-dum, ba-da-da-dada, ba-da-da-da-dum, ba-da-dada-da.
“Ray Davies!” I said to my
wife. “It’s ‘Come Dancing.’ I love
this song.”
The look on her face told me
she was in no mood for dancing
at all. It was time to get on the
bus and head back to our car. We
still had the drive home, and
there was a CD in the CD player.
Resolve
needs to
remain
steadfast
(Bedford) Times-Mail
Forty-three
United
States senators recently
sent a letter to President
Obama urging him to consult with Congress as he
endeavors to defuse Iran’s
nuclear threat.
The lawmakers outlined
potential negative ramifications that could result
from a lessening of
demands.
They asked Hoosier
President
Editorial
Obama to
insist Iran’s leaders comply with the “essential
requirements” previously
outlined by Congress and
the current administration.
“We have watched with
concern as your administration has hinted at ‘creative solutions’ that abandon the clear requirements of U.N. Security
Council Resolutions,” the
letter stated. “Your negotiators appear to have disregarded clear expressions
from the Senate emphasizing the need for a multidecade agreement requiring Iran to fully suspend
its enrichment and reprocessing activities, to dismantle its illicit nuclear
infrastructure, and completely disclose its past
work
on
nuclear
weaponization.”
The senators warned a
softening of America’s
stance could impact our
security and safety and
convey a message of weakness to allies and partners
in the Middle East.
There are certain, critical issues that demand a
stern, unified consensus,
representing the resolve
of both the executive and
legislative branches of our
government. Confronting
Iran on its pursuit of
nuclear weaponry is one
of them.
Though Iran repeatedly
insists its uranium enrichment program is designed
exclusively for peaceful
purposes, it is not adhering to the prescribed
guidelines.
In 2010, Hillary Clinton
warned a nuclear-armed
Iran would embolden its
terrorist clientele and
could spark an arms race
that could destabilize the
entire region.
Clearly, our leaders must
remain stern, steadfast
and united when conversing pointedly with Iran.
GOP is losing the immigration game
By ABDUL HAKIM-SHABAZZ
IndyPoltics.Org
In last week’s debate over
immigration the president
played the GOP opposition like a
Stradivarius violin, which is
surprising following the recent
mid-term election results.
In a nutshell, the president’s
plan gives legal status (not citizenship or permanent residence) to about 5 million undocumented immigrants. They
have to have kids who are American citizens and have been here
for at least five years. It also
steps up border enforcement. It
allows more opportunities for
undocumented immigrants who
were brought here as children
to stay and it takes steps to
address our highly-skilled worker shortage by allowing more
immigrants with certain abilities to get in to the country
quicker.
Republicans are up in arms
over this. Between the wailing,
weeping and gnashing of teeth,
they are threatening lawsuits,
promising to withhold funding
and missing what just really
happened. The president just
scored a major win by putting
his party on a path to future victories with the children of those
impacted by the law.
Why do the kids matter?
You see, those kids are already
citizens; it’s their parents who
are undocumented. According
to the Department of Homeland
Abdul
HakimShabazz
Security, more than half the
undocumented immigrants who
are in the country came here
after 1995, about 6.7 million of
the 11.4 million. And about 80
percent of those folks are 44 and
younger, which means they
either have kids or can produce
some. And some of them already
have. According to the research
about 7 percent of our K-12 student population has an undocumented parent. For example, in
Nevada alone, about 17 percent
of public school kids have an
undocumented parent.
And guess what those kids can
do in a few years? They can vote.
That’s right.
Because those kids who were
born here, they’re citizens and
will be able to vote. And not only
will those kids be voting, but the
demographics show they are
growing fastest in a lot of places
that went really red a few Tuesdays ago. Do you see what’s happening here? Even if the GOP
manages to stop the president’s
plan, which I doubt it legally
can, Obama still looks like the
hero to these kids and Democ-
The president just scored
a major win by putting
his party on a path to
future victories with the children
of those impacted by the law.
rats will get the benefit of their
votes.
This is why Republicans need
to drop the rhetoric and unrealistic solutions and come up with a
thoughtful, comprehensive plan
to deal with the immigration
issue. It’s easy to jump up and
say “secure the border”, but no
one can tell me exactly what that
means. I could make a case the
border is a lot more secure than
it was a decade ago. Since taking
office, the president has deported
more than 2 million immigrants.
The percentage of Mexican-born
undocumented immigrants has
dropped. In fact, according to the
Pew Research Center, the Mexican unauthorized immigration
population, which rose from 2.9
percent in 1995 to 6.9 percent in
2006 is actually down this year to
5.9 percent. The reasons are:
more deportations, a sluggish
economy and a more secure border.
So with that said, if Republicans are smart (and they are,
even if they do get unnecessarily
worked up a lot of times) they
will offer up their own alternative plan. Florida Republican
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart has been
pushing comprehensive immigration reform and warning his
colleagues not to take the rhetorical bait the president put out
last week.
The smart thing for the GOP
would be to listen to members
like Diaz-Balart. Otherwise,
they’ll get played again, again
and again. And like we say in my
old neighborhood, when you only
focus on the player, you are well
on your way to losing the game.

NTSB will investigate bus crash
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) —
The National Transportation
Safety Board is sending investigators to the scene of a crash
between two Tennessee school
buses that killed two small children and a teacher’s aide.
Knoxville police identified the
victims of the Tuesday afternoon crash as Zykia Burns and
Seraya Glasper, both 7 years old,
and 46-year-old Kimberly Riddle.
A preliminary investigation
found that the buses were traveling in opposite directions on the
Asheville Highway when one of
the drivers made a sudden left
turn across the concrete median
and crashed into the other bus.
The second bus flipped onto its
side. Three people in that bus
died, and another three suffered
serious injuries.
The children had been traveling home from school. Police
have not said why they believe
the driver of the first bus
crossed the median.
Chilhowee
Intermediate
School fifth grader Joy Reinmann told WBIR-TV the crash
threw students out of their seats
“and everyone was on the floor
and screaming and crying ... I
thought I was going to die.”
In addition to the fatalities,
the crash killed injured 27 others.
Reinmann said she tried to
offer some comfort to other students who were scared, confused
and hurt.
“Everyone just started crying,
so I went over there hugging
Lexi, my friend,” she said. “Her
nose was bleeding and her lip,
and oh my gosh, everyone was
just crying. So I went and
hugged everyone.”
Although Reinmann ended up
with a black eye, her mother
said she knows it could have
been much worse.
“I’m relieved, I’m so relieved.
I couldn’t imagine her not with
me anymore,” Joy’s mother,
Joline, said. “Take care of what
you got... make the best of each
day.”
Three seriously injured people were taken to the University
of Tennessee Medical Center
and were in stable condition on
Tuesday, Rausch said. Medical
Center
spokesman
Jim
Ragonese said a total of seven
people were treated there, and
three of them were discharged
by Tuesday evening.
East Tennessee Children’s
Hospital spokeswoman Erica
Estep said another 20 children
were treated there for injuries
that were not life-threatening.
Rausch said 18 of the 20 had
been on a bus going home from
Sunnyview Primary School,
which serves kindergarten
through second grade. He
described their injuries as
“bumps and scrapes.” They were
taken to the hospital on a city
bus “to be checked out,” he said.

Bomb
kills
three
OKs ...
By AHMED AL-HAJ
Associated Press
SANAA, Yemen — A car
bomb planted by al-Qaida
militants
exploded
Wednesday near the home
of Iran’s ambassador to
Yemen, killing two people
amid a Shiite power grab
in the impoverished Arab
country believed to be supported by the Islamic
Republic.
Iran’s ambassador to
Yemen, Hossein Niknam,
was not at home when the
bomb exploded at the residence in the capital, Sanaa,
killing a security guard
and his son, security officials said. The blast heavily damaged several nearby
buildings and punched a
hole into the residence. An
Iranian flag later lay on the
debris.
The Yemeni officials
spoke on condition of
anonymity because they
were not authorized to
brief journalists.
Iran’s Deputy Foreign
Minister Hossein Amir
Abdollahian told the semiofficial Tasnim news
agency that the ambassador was unharmed.
“The Sanaa explosion
didn’t harm any Iranian
diplomats. Only material
damage was inflicted,”
Tasnim quoted Abdollahian as saying.
Niknam is new to the
post and only presented his
credentials to the Yemeni
Foreign Ministry within
the last week, according to
Iranian state media.
Al-Qaida in the Arabian
Peninsula, Yemen’s local
branch of the terror group,
later issued a statement on
Twitter claiming
the
attack on the ambassador’s
house, located next to the
headquarters of Yemen’s
main intelligence agency.
The group has carried out
similar attacks in Sanaa.

Marshal Rob Johnson
told the board he has
received seven applications
for the school resource officer (SRO) position at South
Adams Schools. Agility and
written tests are scheduled
for Saturday, and interviews will be Dec. 13.
The need for a new SRO
came after Connor Bonesteel, who has served in the
position for about a year,
failed to pass the entrance
exam for the Indiana Law
Enforcement
Academy.
Johnson hopes to have a
new officer in place by January.
Johnson also noted that
he is in the process of
acquiring four military surplus laptop computers. He
plans to use the new
devices in police vehicles,
and the old devices will be
offered to other town
departments.
Milligan also said goodbye to the board, which he
will be leaving after six

•Asked city attorney
Dave Baumgartner to begin
the process of platting the
alley that runs east-west
between High and Railroad
streets north of Bradford
Street. Most of the alley is
not currently platted, and
the town would like to take
control of it for the convenience of all residents in the
area.
•Learned from Warren
that the town spent $3,050
removing two trees that
were dead or rotten. He also
informed council that
drain tile was added at the
youth
baseball/softball
field.
•Set its 2015 meetings for

Protest leaders surrender to police
By KELVIN CHAN
Associated Press
HONG KONG — Three
founders of a civil disobedience
campaign that helped spark Hong
Kong’s pro-democracy protests
surrendered to police Wednesday,
saying they want to take responsibility for their actions and that
time has come to end the increasingly violent street demonstrations.
Professors Benny Tai Yiu-ting
and Chan Kin-man and the Rev.
Chu Yiu-ming haven’t been
charged and left the police station later Wednesday after being
warned by authorities that
protests that have blocked streets
in the Asian financial center for
more than two months are illegal.
Police said in a statement that
those who surrendered for the
offense of taking part in an unauthorized assembly “were explicitly told ... that illegal occupation
of public places was an unlawful
act and they should stop such act
immediately.” Police said they
will conduct follow-up investigations.
“The concept is to end the civil
disobedience, we need to take the
responsibility,” said Hong Kong
Cardinal Joseph Zen, who accompanied the three democracy leaders.
However, the surrender was
likely to have little influence on
student protesters, who are continuing to occupy two Hong Kong
sites after a violent night of
clashes with police earlier this
week as they tried to surround
city government headquarters.
“Now the situation (in the
protest site) is very dangerous, so
I hope protesters can end the
occupation movement as soon as
possible,” said Tai, a law professor at the Hong Kong University.
Dozens of supporters also
turned themselves in. They were
met by a crowd of jeering opponents calling for them to be jailed.
One group was chanting slogans,
“You deserved it!”
Tai said police took down their
details and then gave them a form

crash was from Chilhowee Intermediate School, which serves
third through fifth grade.
Rausch said some children from
that bus were taken by their
families to the children’s hospital.
Knox County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre
fought back tears at a news conference. “This is an unspeakable
tragedy,” he said. “This is what
we work every day to try to prevent.”
Class was not being held at
the two schools Wednesday, but
counselors were being made
available part of the day for students or families if needed,
McIntyre said later in a statement.

Pacers
fall to
Suns
PHOENIX (AP) —
The Phoenix doublepoint guard combination of Goran Dragic
and Eric Bledsoe
reminded
everyone
just how good they can
be together.
Dragic scored 34
points, Bledsoe had 27
and the Suns beat Indiana 116-99 on Tuesday
night for their fourth
straight victory over
the Pacers.
“Two electrifying
guards playing together. That’s a tough
matchup,”
Indiana
coach Frank Vogel
said.
“They
have
incredible speed. If
you don’t take care of
the basketball they will
expose you for 38 fastbreak points, which is
what
happened
tonight.”
The Suns’ guards,
who are getting more
time together on the
court with Isaiah
Thomas out with an
injury, combined for
shooting.
22-for-35
Dragic matched his
season high for a game
with 22 first-half
points, and Bledsoe
scored 21 in the second
half.
Dragic made five of
six 3-pointers, Bledsoe
had seven assists.
“Finally, you know,
we’ve been struggling
a little bit,” Bledsoe
said. “This game really
was easy for us.”
Gerald Green and
Markieff Morris added
15 points apiece for the
Suns, who broke open
the game in the final
seven minutes.
The Suns, after two
lethargic losses, wore
down the Pacers with
their
high-energy
game.
“It was a big talk for
us all the last two days
of having that enthusiasm,” Phoenix coach
Jeff Hornacek said,
“having that energy. ...
and I think these guys
took it to heart.”
Miles scored 17 for
Indiana, and Roy Hibbert had 15 points and
10 rebounds.
Phoenix put together a 17-3 run spanning
halftime that erased a
nine-point
Indiana
lead and lifted the Suns
to a 64-59 advantage on
Dragic’s 13-footer with
8:01 left in the third
quarter.
Miles went hard to
the floor with 30.7 seconds left in the third,
and after an official
review, Green was
called for a flagrantone foul, giving Indiana two free throws,
plus possession.

The Commercial Review
Junior class to lead SA
By CHRIS SCHANZ
The Commercial Review
With more than half of
its team returning with
sectional experience, the
South Adams High School
boys swim team is hoping
to be represented at the
state finals.
To do so, the Starfires
will have to rely on a
group of five juniors.
“They worked hard for
me in the summer,” said
SAHS
coach
Andy
Lehman, whose team
opened its season with a
96-72 victory over Adams
Central on Tuesday (see
roundup).
Swimming
“They worked out nailing
their relay exchanges, so
we’re hoping this year
their relay can go far.”
In the 2014 sectional
meet at Jay County, the
Starfires’
200-yard
freestyle relay finished
third, the 400 freestyle
relay was fourth and the
200 medley relay placed
fifth.
The relay teams were
largely made up of Daniel
Steffen, David Steffen,
Daniel Burson and Drew
LeFever. Xavier Rupp,
another junior, and sophomore Zach Teeple will
join those four in the
relays this season.
Handling the distance
duties for the Starfires
will be Burson, who
placed third in both the
200 and 500 freestyle races
at the sectional. His time
of 1 minute, 16.44 seconds,
in the 200 freestyle trailed
only Muncie Central’s
Alec Hale and Jay County’s Cody White. Hale took
the top spot in the 500
freestyle as well, with
Delta’s Cody Anacker also
finishing ahead of Burson.
Lehman said he has
higher expectations for
Burson this season.
“We’re hoping to see
him succeed, place a little
bit higher and advance a
little bit further than

what he did last year,”
Lehman said.
LeFever, who helped the
Starfire football team to a
semi-state berth in the
fall, will handle the butterfly and short freestyle
duties, and Daniel Steffen
will swim breaststroke.
At sectional, LeFever
was third in the 100 butterfly with a time of 55.67
seconds and just missed
the championship heat in
the 200 individual medley,
placing ninth.
David Steffen, who
Lehman said will also be
a sprinter, finished sixth
in both the 100 freestyle
and 200 IM at sectional.
“It’s still an area we’re
working on,” Lehman
said of the sprint events.
“So far in practice I’ve
been really impressed.
They’ve been hitting
