More obituaries on the previous page ui Gloria Emerson reported on war D Journalist's book about Vietnam and U.S. reaction to it won National Book Award. By Patricia Sullivan The Washington Post WASHINGTON Gloria Emerson, one of the small band of female journalists who covered the Vietnam War and whose subsequent books continued to document the turmoil and tragedy of war, died in an apparent suicide Tuesday at her apartment in New York. She was 75. Emerson had Parkinson's disease, friends said, and left notes in her Manhattan home indicating that she took her life. The New York medical examiner said Thursday the cause of death had not yet been determined. She came late to the Vietnam War, working there from 1970 to 1972. Her articles in The New York Times showed the human cost of war in excruciating detail and won a George Polk Award for excellence in foreign reporting, but ultimately they seemed too measured and too shortlived for her. Emerson turned to magazine writing and then to books. Her nonfiction account about Vietnam and America's reaction to it, "Winners and Losers" (1976), won the National Obituaries Richard L. Weese 66, McCordsville, jv died August 4, 2004. was a Marine Suorp. veteran, graduated from Ohio Mili- tu Sr'fltended the University rVNw ' Jof Dayton.

He most recently drove a school bus for Lawrence Twp. Schools and had previously been an aviation instructor at IUPUI for 14 years, as well as a credit manager for Indiana Equipment. He is survived by his wife of 34 years Sharon (Skrok) Weese; sons Richard (Beth) Weese, Jr., John C. (Lori) Weese; daughters Kerri (Ed) Cavey, Sherry (Tony) Hall; 10 grandchildren.

Emerson wrote with passion about people caught up in the machinery of war. She never got over Vietnam, and she was determined that the reading public would not forget, either. "I didn't write to be famous; I wrote to keep a record," she told The Washington Post in 1991. She was among those who blew the whistle on false body counts, on the practice of bestowing medals on high-ranking officers who never saw combat, and on the ease with which troops bought heroin and other drugs. She was an "obscurely famous" writer, the Post story said, a character in novelist Ward Just's short story "Journalism" whose torrid love affairs were legendary but who barely spoke of her two former husbands. In addition to "Winners and Losers," she wrote "Some American Men" (1985), "Gaza, A Year in the Intifada" (1991) and a novel, "Loving Graham Greene" (2000). Emerson did not attend college and held no degrees but was three times the Ferris professor of journalism for the Council of Humanities at Princeton University in the 1980s. She was a member of the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame. She had no immediate survivors. .1 To our readers Commemorate your friends and loved ones who have passed away with a mcmoriam in this section.

M"Mi , Irii Tim liiHliriri I WW Vragovic Associated Press Partners In crime fighting: Officers Troy Jester (left) and John Chambers time passing cars in Fort Wayne. Both like the idea of having a partner because that means their backup is readily available. Many Indiana police often patrol alone Associated Press . FORT WAYNE, Ind. Whether it's Cagney and Lacey, Starsky and Hutch or Crockett and Tubbs, TV police always seem to ride in pairs. But life does not imitate fiction in northeastern Indiana. Most of the time there, it is one officer per car for city police and the Allen County Sheriffs Department. With increasing demands on police budgets, only a handful of officers have regular partners unless the tandem includes a dog. Fort Wayne Police Chief Rusty York began his career with a partner decades ago when it was much more common. "It was more of a safety issue," he told The News Sentinel for a story Thursday. "We didn't have the communications equipment that we have now." With a growing city and department, having officers ride two to a car is something the department cannot afford, he said. Studies: Teens unaware of workplace hazards Associated Press KOKOMO, Ind. Wearing a hot pink T-shirt with "The Windmill Grill" emblazoned in black across her back, Amanda Ullmer grabbed a can of whipped cream and added the final touches to an order. Ullmer, with her dark locks pulled back into a tight knot on her head and a tiny apron stuffed with a ticket book, pen and straws, makes an ideal picture of 0 wutrcss "I love my job," Ullmer said. "I enjoy working with people." Ullmer, 19, is like most teens who take a summer job. They usually work part time for minimum wage. It's what they might not know that might hurt them. Studies show most teens are often unaware of their rights as workers, and because they don't have the experience of older workers, they don't easily recognize workplace dangers. A combination of youthful energy and a reluctance to ask questions also increases the chances of an injury at the workplace. Janelle Chaplin, 17, is a coworker of Ullmer's at The Windmill GrilL Chaplin has been working at the restaurant since she was 16 and says being a cashier and hostess keeps her busy. Chaplin wants to open her own business after attending college. She says it will be a place where art, music and writing are Speedway By Cory Schouten A veteran Indianapolis Motor Speedway Safety Patrol member died Friday, three hours after the motor scooter he was driving struck a concrete barrier. The crash happened at 7:30 a.m. along Hulman Boulevard, the primary north-south road that bisects the infield, track officials said. The scooter driven by Art Morris, 64, Anderson, hit the concrete barrier that separates pedestrians from vehicular traffic. He was taken to Methodist The limited number of officers they have must be stretched. Victor Hopkins, spokesman for the Allen County Sheriffs Department, said all regular patrol officers ride by themselves. Officers who serve warrants ride in pairs, as do officers who are in their first three months with the department Also, on a number of city and county calls, two officers, often in separate cars, are still sent to investigate. Backup is always ready, police said. State Police troopers also are limited to one per car except when rookies are going through a 90-day training, during which they are paired with veterans. Fort Wayne police Officers John Chambers and Troy Jester are the exception. They graduated from the Indiana Police Academy together in January 2001, and after their probationary period, they patrolled alone. Now they patrol together several days a week which both The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health estimates more than 200,000 teens ages 14 to 17 are hurt at work every year. masterfully blended to allow people a chance to express themselves in a positive way. But when asked whether she knew what rights she had as an employee, Chaplin raised an eyebrow and hesitantly said no. She also said she received safety training but wasn't sure it was that helpful. "They showed me not to swallow the stuff we put in the bottles that we clean the tables with," she said. Chaplin also said that while she has considerate and helpful employers, she doesn't feel comfortable asking them questions. Chaplin said she has hurt herself several times, but it's not a big deal and she hasn't reported it to her employer. Each year, thousands of young workers are injured or killed on the job. Although there isn't a single data source that provides a comprehensive picture of teen injuries, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health estimates more than 200,000 teens ages 14 to 17 are hurt at work every year. scooter crash kills man Hospital with head and arm injuries. He was pronounced dead at 1030 a.m. at the hospital Indianapolis Motor Speedway spokesman Fred Nation said Morris, who was supervising traffic crews, had worked seasonally at the track for at least 20 years. Friday was a practice day for drivers in Sunday's Brickyard 400. Nation said safety crew members have suffered injuries in recent years, but he couldn't recall another fatality in more than 30 years. Nation said the Speedway had made its chaplain available say they like better although sometimes they still go out alone. "A lot of the situations we get into are domestic," Jester said. "As soon as you're there, you can approach them. You don't have to wait in your car for backup." The buddy system also maximizes the department's vehicles, Chambers said. "If we go to a call, it's just one car," Chambers said. "That's one more car that is still out patrolling." They agreed that the sight of two officers tends to diffuse volatile situations. "We don't have as many problems with people," Jester said. "When we get there, they automatically know there are two of us they are going to have to deal with." Chambers and Jester said it's also easier to rush to the scene of a serious crime with one officer talking on the radio and the other keeping an eye on the road. That is a higher rate than their adult co-workers, even though youths are restricted from the most hazardous of jobs, which include manufacturing and construction. According to NIOSH, an average of 67 workers under age 18 died from work-related injuries each year from 1992 through 2000. In 1998, an estimated 77,000 required treatment in hospital emergency rooms. The Institute of Medicine lists the most common injuries suffered by working' teens as cuts, bruises, sprains and strains, burns and fractures or dislocations. It also notes the majority of jobs teens work are based in retail shops, restaurants and grocery stores. Tom Trine, owner of The Windmill Grill, said he employs 23 teenagers, about half his work force. Trine is always looking out for his young workers and is well-versed in child labor laws and occupational safety and health regulations. "I probably get more grief because I limit the amount of work I give them than how hard the work is," he said. Trine not only provides mandated training, he also talks to each employee about hazards in food service and requires his staff to wear special shoes that are water- and grease-resistant.

Witnesses told police Morris appeared to have difficulty controlling the scooter before it swerved into the concrete barrier. They said he still was conscious after the crash. Jones said an investigation continues to determine the cause of the crash and Morris' death. Call Star reporter Cory Schouten at (317) 444-6073. 1
