Stutzman has GOP challenger
A Huntington man has announced his intention to challenge U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Howe, for Indiana‚Äôs 2nd District congressional seat in the Republican Party primary in May. In a prepared statement, James E. Mahoney III said he was spurred to seek Stutzman‚Äôs job after the incumbent Republican voted in support of a shutdown of the federal government.

‚Äú M r. Stutzman angered me by supporting the government shutdown,‚ÄĚ Mahoney said. ‚ÄúThen he had the nerve to tell the people of Indiana that he was opposed to the government shutdown, yet he continued to vote for the government shutdown. Now, I looked at the pictures of him while he was making this statement, and I did not see a gun to his head. I will support a bill to outlaw closing the government.‚ÄĚ¬† In his prepared statement, Mahoney said he and his family have lived in Huntington ‚Äúfor about 13 years. I have been disabled since 1990 with a major back injury, and have chronic pain. Due to this injury, I have to use a wheelchair. But unlike the wheelchair, I never run out of power.‚ÄĚ Mahoney said he, ‚Äúlike most people,‚ÄĚ lives paycheck-to-paycheck. ‚ÄúI need the government to do its job. Too many people are harmed if the government is closed. I am a Republican and believe in government by the people, with polices that grow the economy, provide funds for common sense projects and maintains strong national defense. ‚ÄúI need all the help I can get. If you want a congressman that will seek solutions to the nation‚Äôs problems, vote for James E Mahoney II.‚ÄĚ Mahoney lists as his previous work experience positions as the special assistant to the director of the Northwest Indiana Law Enforcement Training Center, and as the assistant manager of a Walgreen‚Äôs pharmacy in Peoria, Ariz. He is a former superintendent of parks in Schererville and former director of parks and recreation in Merrillville. Nearly 400 members of The Bridge Community Church in Decatur and Berne partnered with Kids Against Hunger Nov. 23 to pack 85,536 meals for children in need. The church collected enough money by saving extra pocket change, money usually spent on dining out and outright donations to pay for nearly seven tons of food. Kids Against Hunger is a nationally known organization that works to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the United States and provide food to starving children throughout the world. Volunteers packed rice, vitamin enriched soy protein, vegetables and seasonings. Each bag contained six one-cup servings. The packages will be shipped to Mission of Hope in Haiti for distribution. Approximately 135 members of The Bridge have traveled to Mission of Hope during one of See BRIDGE, Page 2
Trio honored for substance abuse efforts
Three members of the Adams County Substance Abuse Awareness Council were recognized recently by the Northeast Regional Advisory Board of the Governor‚Äôs Commission for a Drug Free Indiana at the group‚Äôs 18th annual meeting.¬† The pur pose of the Northeast Regional Advisory Board is to collaborate to reduce the impact of alcohol and drugs in the 14-county northeast Indiana area. ‚ÄĘ Abbey Jauregui was the winner of the Youth Advocate of the Year award. Jauregui is serving her third year on the executive council for Adams County Substance Abuse Awareness Council at Adams Central High School. She participates in various programming and volunteers to educate members of the community about the effects of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. She has produced two radio commercials and a webcast talking about some of the consequences of using alcohol and other drugs, the risks of drunk driving, and what she does to stay drug and alcohol free. ‚ÄúThe Substance Abuse Awareness Council is proud of Abbey‚Äôs ef forts,‚ÄĚ said Director Kelly Sickafoose. ‚ÄĘ Charlie Cook was nominated for Volunteer of the Year, according to Sickafoose, ‚Äúbecause he goes way above and beyond his duties as a school resource officer and adult leader for Adams Central‚Äôs Substance Abuse Awareness Council Partnership. One of the ways is that he gives out his cell phone number to many students so they can notify him anonymously when they know a party where alcohol and/or drugs will be present. He then takes care of it before the party happens, if possible. Charlie is a true inspiration. Despite him being very busy, he makes time to help SAAC and students whenever possible. The Substance

County snow removal plans for season are outlined
By MIKE LAMM With colder weather effecting road conditions in the local area, Adams County Highway Department Superintendent Mark Mitchel reported plans for snow removal for this winter season to the Adams County Commissioners at their regularly-scheduled Nov. 25 meeting in the service complex. Noting that while ‚Äúeach storm is different,‚ÄĚ Mitchel informed commissioners his department will ‚Äútry to get out earlier this year; about 5 p.m.‚ÄĚ if conditions warrant such a response. Of course, ‚Äúwe‚Äôre not going to be out there chasing the first couple of snow flakes,‚ÄĚ he stated, adding that often, ‚Äúwe have to wait a few hours to see what happens‚ÄĚ before dispatching snow removal equipment to various areas of the county. Mitchel informed commissioners that, counting pick-up trucks with snow plow blades and graders, his department has 16 vehicles to help with snow removal. He added he has 18 drivers on staff, which would cover daytime activities. He would move five of those drivers to a nighttime schedule if winter storms dictated such a necessity, he said. The highway department superintendent also told commissioners that vandals ‚Äúapparently didn‚Äôt like our road closed signs on the mud road (C.R. 850 N), and pulled out our signs and ran over them.‚ÄĚ He added that ‚ÄúIf this continues, we‚Äôll put in large posts and connect them with a heavy-duty chain‚ÄĚ to keep four-wheel-drive vehicles from further deteriorating the roadway. Informing commissioners that there are approximately 130 miles of stone roads in Adams County, Mitchel stated he hoped to chip and seal approximately three miles of gravel roadway in 2014. The cost to do so is approximately $80-$85,000 per mile. Commission Chairman Doug Bauman,

pointing out that some of the county‚Äôs roads will never be paved because it is not expeditious to do so, stated that ‚Äú21-22 miles was the most we ever did‚ÄĚ in one year in the process of converting a gravel road to a paved surface. In other roadway business, County Engineer Tim Barkey reported the culvert replacement work on Piqua Road has been complete and the road is open to traffic. He stated that although the Celina, Ohio, firm of VTI Excavation had added straw and grass seed to complete landscaping at the site, the firm will return in the spring to over-seed bare areas should they develop. He also reported the commissioners had completed their scoring sheets evaluating engineering firms hoping to be awarded the county‚Äôs large bridge inspection contract and he would be tabulating results and reporting his conclusions back to the board next week.

The ability to discern slight differences in shades of gray has long been thought to be an attribute of the human visual system that cannot be improved. But Daphne Bavelier, professor of brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Rochester, has discovered that very practiced action gamers become 58 percent better at perceiving fine differences in contrast. ‚ÄúNormally, improving contrast sensitivity means getting glasses or eye surgery- somehow changing the optics of the eye,‚ÄĚ says Bavelier. ‚ÄúBut we‚Äôve found that action video games train the brain to process the existing visual information more efficiently, and the improvements last for months after game play is stopped.‚ÄĚ The finding builds on Bavelier‚Äôs past work that has shown that action video games decrease visual crowding and increase visual attention. Contrast sensitivity, she says, is the primary limiting factor in how well a person can see. Bavelier says that the findings show that action video game training may be a useful complement to eye-correction techniques, since game training may teach the visual cortex to make better use of the information it receives. Bavelier says that the findings suggest that despite the many concerns about the effects of action video games and the time spent in front of a computer screen, that time may not necessarily be harmful, at least for vision.

Behind the Black Friday ads
Democrat‚Äôs mail room employees spent weeks preparing for Thursday‚Äôs edition
By AUDRA BUTLER and J SWYGART The Daily Democrat published on Thanksgiving Day, and readers who picked up that day‚Äôs newspaper from their doorstep or at their favorite convenience store were treated to a whopping 1.9-pound edition. Admittedly it‚Äôs normal to weigh your turkey, not your newspaper, on Thanksgiving Day, but Democrat mailroom manager Donna Breisch did just that in the days leading up the DDD‚Äôs largest edition of the year. She was just curious. Not that Breisch or her crew of mail room employees at the Democrat have had a lot of time for levity in the past few weeks. Snuggled inside Thursday‚Äôs Democrat were 15 inserted advertising fliers designed to entice shoppers to head out on Black Friday ‚ÄĒ the busiest shopping day of the year. And those ads didn‚Äôt wind up inside the newspaper ‚ÄĒ and subesquently in our readers‚Äô hands ‚ÄĒ by happenstance. An endless series of semis have stopped in the alley behind the Democrat in recent weeks, each dropping off another load of inserts for the Thanksgiving edition, and the newspaper‚Äôs antiquated ‚ÄĒ but effective ‚ÄĒmethod of unloading pallets full of ads has been called into action. As the days leading up to Thanksgiving drew ever-closer, the so-called ‚Äúback shop‚ÄĚ at the Democrat was turned into a maze of pallets and stacks of advertisements. Five employees ‚ÄĒ Vickie Baker, Melissa Bergman, Jonathan Huffman, Norman Bergman and John Bollinger ‚ÄĒ and Breisch herself, have worked additional hours to sort and organize those ads by hand. In total, about 120 hours were spent prepping Thursday‚Äôs paper alone. And before those employees could celebrate the holiday with their own families, there was still a lot of work to be done while most of the rest of the county was still asleep. Norm Bergman, who drives each day to the newspaper‚Äôs printing plant in Columbia City and also helps with other numerous and assorted chores in the mail room, headed out around midnight Wednesday to collect the paper from the printing plant and head back toward Decatur. Breisch said the rest of the crew ‚Äúplan on getting here (at the newspaper) around 2 a.m. Thanksgiving day.‚ÄĚ From that point on the ‚Äúback shop‚ÄĚ team worked nonstop into the wee hours of the morning, putting the final touches on the paper and getting it out to the hands of newspaper carriers, who delivered to homes all over the local area. In total, six tons of newspaper were distributed on Thursday alone. This whole experience is not new to Breisch. As the Democrat‚Äôs longesttenured employee, she‚Äôs seen it all in her 25 years at the newspaper. ‚ÄúLast year was very disorganized,
The Democrat‚Äôs Thanksgiving edition chewed up some six tons of newsprint and took employees a combined 120 hours to prepare. Mailroom manager Donna Breisch, above, has been through it all before during her 25 years at the Democrat.
but we‚Äôre hopeful that this year will run more smoothly,‚ÄĚ she said prior to Thursday morning‚Äôs paper rush. ‚ÄúThe mail room has been working extremely hard in putting together the package of inserts from the various advertisers,‚ÄĚ DDD Publisher Ron Storey said. ‚ÄúThis is accomplished completely by hand inserting which takes many hours of advance preparation. Additionally the mail room has come in extremely early [on Thanksgiving] to put the finished package together for home delivery. ‚ÄúWithout their efforts we could not bring you the finished product every day, let alone [on Thanksgiving].‚ÄĚ

DNR reminds hunters: No attractants
The Department of Natural Resources is reminding Indiana hunters that even though deer attractants found at retail stores may be purchased and used in the wild, hunting near them is illegal. Attractants are considered bait. Indiana regulations prohibit the hunting of deer with the use or aid of bait, which is defined as ‚Äúa food that is transported and placed for consumption, including, but not limited to, piles of corn and apples placed in the field; a prepared solid or liquid that is manufactured and intended for consumption by livestock or wild deer, including, but not limited to, commercial baits and food supplements; salt; or mineral supplements.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúBasically, if you place anything that isn‚Äôt grown in the area and hunt there, it‚Äôs illegal,‚ÄĚ said Lt. Larry Morrison, outdoor education director for DNR Law Enforcement. ‚ÄúHunting next to a corn field or from an apple tree is legal, but placing corn or apples under your tree stand would put you in conflict with current Indiana law.‚ÄĚ An area is considered baited for 10 days after the product and the affected soil is removed from an area. Odor differs from bait. Cover scents or scent attractants are legal to use when hunting. Archery season currently is underway in Indiana and continues through Jan. 5, 2014. The urban zone segment in designated areas continues through Jan. 31, 2014. The most popular segment of Indiana‚Äôs deer hunting season ‚Äď firearms ‚Äď begins Nov. 16 and ends Dec. 1, followed by the muzzleloader season (Dec. 7-22) and the special antlerless season (Dec. 26-Jan. 5, 2014). A violation of Indiana‚Äôs no baiting regulation is a Class C misdemeanor.
