Drugs suspected in fatal crash By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI

GENOA – A 44-year-old Rockford man was charged with felony DUI in connection to the crash that killed a 34-year-old Sugar Grove man and injured five others. Howard Castleman, of the 2900 block of Sunnyside Road in Rockford, was charged with felony aggravated driving under the influence, driving under the influence and improper lane use, DeKalb County Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said. He was taken to DeKalb County Jail after being treated

at Kishwaukee Community Hospital. Police suspect Castleman was under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash, Dumdie said. His bail was set at $500,000 Thursday, which requires posting $50,000 for release while the case is pending. The most serious charge typically is punishable by up to 14 years in prison. More charges could be filed after police receive lab test results and consult with prosecutors, Dumdie said. Castleman’s 2007 Freightliner two-axle truck was traveling south on Route 23 south of Lloyd Road about 6:15 p.m. when he drove into

the northbound lane and struck another truck head-on, Dumdie said. Two other vehicles driving behind the northbound truck – a Chevrolet Impala and a Chrysler Town and Country minivan – each struck the vehicle in front of it. Ryan E. Martin of Howard Sugar Grove was pro- Castleman nounced dead at the scene about 6:50 p.m., DeKalb County Coroner Dennis Miller said. He was driving a 2002 box truck for Nick’s

Furniture in Sugar Grove. Nick Bumba, owner of Nick’s Furniture, described Martin as a reliable employee and a great father to his 3-year-old son. “Ryan was just a very good person, all the way around, in every sense of the word,” Bumba said. “He was hardworking, dependable and very reliable. “We’re heartbroken. I’m personally heartbroken. He was a good man.” Castleman and four others – a passenger in Martin’s truck, the driver and passenger in the Impala and the driver in the minivan – were taken

to Kishwaukee Community Hospital and later released. They were: Michael J. Roberson, 18, of Sugar Grove; Susan K. Springer, 43, of Genoa; a 13-year-old Genoa girl; and Wendy Harms, 48, of Genoa. Castleman was driving a truck for Straight Shot Express, which contracts with UPS to haul oversized freight. Route 23 was closed between Base Line and Whipple roads until midnight as emergency crews worked. Snow or slick roads did not appear to play a role in the accident, Dumdie said.



Event honors those who helped shape community for years By JEFF ENGELHARDT

SYCAMORE – Rose Treml made it to her magic number in 2012. After years of closing in on 500 businesses, Treml, executive director of the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce, celebrated surpassing the milestone with those members Thursday at the St. Mary’s Activity Center in Sycamore. The annual chamber meeting, titled Strength in Numbers, recognized outstanding local businesses and the chamber’s march toward 502 members in 2012. The large membership already has paid dividends, especially in advocacy efforts, Treml said. “When you tell your representatives or the governor that you represent over 500 businesses, your message is a little more impactful,” Treml said. “That’s why the theme is strength in numbers.” One major reason for the chamber’s membership accomplishment in 2012 was the addition of 100 new members. Entrepreneur Becki Burke decided to join the chamber after three years of running a home business. Burke, who sells handbags for California-based Gigi Hill, said joining the chamber has opened doors for potential clients. Treml said many more homebased businesses are interested in joining their local chambers of commerce because of the networking opportunities they provide. “I decided it was time for me to take that next step after running my business for three years,” Burke said. “It’s already been very beneficial in making so many new connections.” Thursday’s celebration was not only about new members but also those who have helped shape Sycamore for years. Richard and Beth Willey won the Clifford Danielson Outstanding Citizen Award for their decades of commu-

The award honors individuals who strive for the highest levels of professional accomplishment and have devoted their time, energy and career to enhance the quality of life for Sycamore residents. Richard Willey, who as a 26-yearold co-founded a bank now known as American Midwest Bank in Sycamore, was recognized along with his wife for their work with the Kishwaukee Education Consortium, Sycamore Rotary and other community organizations. Richard Willey said he met his wife in Sycamore, sent his children

through school in Sycamore and realized his professional dream in Sycamore, so it was the city and residents that deserved the recognition. “If you look at all the common denominators here, it’s Sycamore, Sycamore, Sycamore,” he said. “So thank you. … What a great place.” Beth Willey was honored for her work with the Sycamore Rotary and parent teacher organization for Sycamore School District 427, which she attended as a student.

Women in combat: Good to go if standards met By LOLITA C. BALDOR The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Women in the military must have the same opportunities as men to take on grueling and dangerous combat jobs, whether loading 50-pound artillery shells or joining commando raids to take out terrorists, defense leaders declared Thursday as they ordered a quartermillion positions open to service members regardless of gender. As Defense Secretary Leon Panetta

and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, signed an order wiping away generations of limits on women fighting for their country, the military services said they would begin a sweeping review of the physical requirements. At the same time they acknowledged that women have been fighting and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for more than a decade. Women make up about 14 percent of the 1.4 million active U.S. military personnel. More than 280,000 women have been sent to Iraq, Afghanistan

or neighboring nations in support of the wars. Of the more than 6,600 U.S. service members who have been killed, 152 have been women. The leaders said no physical standards will be lowered just to send more women closer to the battlefront. “I fundamentally believe that our military is more effective when success is based solely on ability and qualifications and on performance,” Panetta said at a Pentagon news conference.

Sycamore on losing end of deal I saw a sign for a business in Sycamore a couple of years ago and thought, “Seems like an unusual place for this.” I was right. Sycamore – being nowhere near a major airport – IS an unusual place to transact aviation fuel deals worth hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Or so says the Regional Transit Authority (umbrella organization of the Chicago Transit Authority, Metra and Pace), which filed suit in Cook County Circuit Court last week against United Airlines, its subsidiary United Aviation Fuels Corp. (located in Sycamore) and the city of Sycamore. As reported by the Daily Chronicle, the deal is big money. The Chronicle said Sycamore has netted at least $360,000 annually since fiscal 2004. The deal began in 2001. Under the agreement, United uses the office in Sycamore to buy aviation fuel and pay Sycamore’s 8 percent tax, rather than Cook County’s 9.5 percent rate. Sycamore rebates most of its share of the sales tax – about $18 million in 2012 – back to the airline, while keeping a small portion. So the airline saves money and Sycamore makes money. The RTA estimates, however, that the tax agreements have cost it $96 million since 2005, the city of Chicago $133 million and Cook County $60 million. Why Sycamore? “Illinois is among a handful of states where sales tax is applied where a purchase offer is accepted rather than where a product is delivered to

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst the customer,” the Chicago Tribune said. “That quirk in the law creates an opportunity for companies to relocate the site of sales transactions to a lower tax venue, some of which also offer rebates.” Illinois allowing something other states say is either illegal or at least dirty pool? Who’d a-thunk it? The RTA says the Sycamore office is a “sham.” “While United Fuels purports to have a ‘sales office’ in Sycamore, there is no selling activity to demonstrate this office is the site of any sale compared to the activity United Fuels and United Airlines perform in their primary offices in Chicago,” the suit filing says. The Sycamore office “is located on one floor, and shares that floor with other businesses. It is staffed by one person, but not on a daily basis, and that sole representative does not even have a computer.” The suit doesn’t include American Airlines because American is in bankruptcy proceedings, but the RTA told Reuters that American will be added as soon as it emerges from bankruptcy. Sycamore Mayor Ken Mundy says the airlines are “just doing what any business or individual would do, and that is to look to save some money and

lower their tax burden.” He’s right, but paradoxically, that’s why Sycamore loses no matter what happens. Worst-case: Sycamore loses the suit, gets no future money and must repay the roughly $7 million it has received in fuel tax revenue as a result of its agreements with the airlines, plus attorney’s fees. That would be devastating. Let’s say Sycamore loses the suit but doesn’t have to repay the money. The city would still lose enormous revenue. If Sycamore wins? The arrangement continues, the money flows, but we still lose. We lose because we’re doing only what’s legal, not what’s right. Call me naïve, but situations such as these arise because corporations, municipalities and people increasingly are hewing to the minimum standard of behavior. Here’s the crazy part. The suit alleges the true sales activity of jet fuel happens in Chicago. Much of this activity occurs in an office with phones and Internet, not in hangars. Sycamore has phones and Internet. Since the airlines went to the trouble of setting up an office here, wouldn’t it have been easier, legal and more ethical to have people in the office doing the work?

Penalty could price smokers out of health overhaul The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Millions of smokers could be priced out of health insurance because of tobacco penalties in President Barack Obama’s health care law, according to experts who are just now teasing out the potential impact of a little-noted provision in the massive legislation. The Affordable Care Act – “Obamacare” to its detractors – allows health insurers to charge smokers buying individual policies up to 50 percent higher premiums starting next Jan. 1. For a 55-year-old smoker, the penalty could reach nearly $4,250 a year. A 60-year-old could wind up paying nearly $5,100 on top of premiums. Younger smokers could be charged lower penalties under rules proposed last fall by the Obama administration. But older smokers could face a heavy hit on their household budgets at a time in life when smoking-related illnesses tend to emerge. Workers covered on the job would be able to avoid tobacco penalties by joining smoking cessation programs, because employer plans operate under different rules. But experts say that option is not guaranteed to smokers trying to purchase coverage individually. Nearly one of every five U.S. adults smokes. That share is higher among lower-income people, who also are more likely to work in jobs that don’t come with health insurance and would therefore depend on the new federal health care law. Smoking increases the risk of developing heart disease, lung problems and cancer, contributing to nearly 450,000 deaths a year. Insurers won’t be allowed

Helen Heinlo smokes in June 2007 outside of a coffee shop in Belmont, Calif. Millions of smokers could be priced out of health insurance because of tobacco penalties in President Barack Obama’s health care law, experts say. The Affordable Care Act allows health insurers to charge smokers buying an individual policy up to 50 percent higher premiums starting Jan. 1. to charge more under the overhaul for people who are overweight, or have a health condition like a bad back or a heart that skips beats – but they can charge more if a person smokes. Starting next Jan. 1, the federal health care law will make it possible for people who can’t get coverage now

to buy private policies, providing tax credits to keep the premiums affordable. Although the law prohibits insurance companies from turning away the sick, the penalties for smokers could have the same effect in many cases, keeping out potentially costly patients. “We don’t want to cre-

ate barriers for people to get health care coverage,” said California state Assemblyman Richard Pan, who is working on a law in his state that would limit insurers’ ability to charge smokers more. The federal law allows states to limit or change the smoking penalty. “We want people who are smoking to get smoking cessation treatment,” added Pan, a pediatrician who represents the Sacramento area. Obama administration officials declined to be interviewed for this article, but a former consumer protection regulator for the government is raising questions. “If you are an insurer and there is a group of smokers you don’t want in your pool, the ones you really don’t want are the ones who have been smoking for 20 or 30 years,” said Karen Pollitz, an expert on individual health insurance markets with the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. “You would have the flexibility to discourage them.” Several provisions in the federal health care law work together to leave older smokers with a bleak set of financial options, said Pollitz, formerly deputy director of the Office of Consumer Support in the federal Health and Human Services Department. First, the law allows insurers to charge older adults up to three times as much as their youngest customers. Second, the law allows insurers to levy the full 50 percent penalty on older smokers while charging less to younger ones. And finally, government tax credits that will be available to help pay premiums cannot be used to offset the cost of penalties for smokers.

8STATE BRIEF Eagle released after month at Quincy rehab center QUINCY – An adult male eagle is free again after spending a month at the Raptor Rehabilitation Center in Quincy. The Quincy Herald-Whig reported that the eagle was found dazed Dec. 21 along a road in Schuyler County, Mo. Authorities at the raptor center said the bird was suffering from a possible head injury and wounds to both shoulders. Staff members aren’t sure if he hit a power line, flew into a vehicle or was injured some other way. Karen Roush works at the raptor center, and she said the eagle’s wings have been repaired. The staff also did some rehab with the bird to make sure he could fly and find food before releasing him along the Mississippi River on Wednesday.

DeKalb looking at new tree ordinances By DAVID THOMAS DeKALB – Even if DeKalb has stronger ordinances protecting the city’s trees and vegetation, they would not have stopped ComEd from clearing the Nature Trail. “Nothing that we currently have, nor are what we will able to find from comparable communities, is legislation to prevent ComEd from doing what it did,” City Manager Mark Biernacki said. “They have various authorities from their easements, as well as federal regulations, that would trump

local ordinances.” Because ComEd has full authority in its easement, which are areas under and around power lines, the city has limited power to control the utility’s work, Public Works Director T.J. Moore said. “They can’t really be compelled to replace [trees,]” Moore said. “Now they can choose to replace in some instances.” In November, several residents protested ComEd’s clearing of trees along the Nature Trail, a 1.3-mile bike path between Sycamore Road and First Street. Many residents

described the area as looking like a war zone, and many blamed the DeKalb Park District for appearing to be asleep at the switch. A number of residents and some aldermen petitioned the city to examine the possibility of a stronger tree ordinance.

One suggestion was requiring entities to plant a new tree for every tree they cut down. Some candidates for local office have talked about exploring a stronger tree ordinance. Of all the trees in DeKalb, the city regulates 20 to 40 percent of them, Biernacki estimated. The other 60 to 80 percent are owned by other local governments, such as the park district or DeKalb School District 428, or residents. Biernacki said the ordinance regulating trees in public areas is very effective, noting that the city can order the removal of trees on property if they are

considered dangerous. The policy question before city leaders Monday night is whether they wish to prohibit homeowners from cutting down trees on their own property. Lake Forest and Highland Park have such prohibitions. Meanwhile, ComEd has pledged to work with the park district and local residents in restoring the vegetation along the Nature Trail. The panel consists of two park board commissioners, park district staff, ComEd representatives and two or three members of the public.

While members of the public are pleased that ComEd is involved, a number of others want ComEd to pay for complete restoration. ComEd spokesman Paul Callighan said he cannot say for sure yet whether the utility will pay for any part of the restoration. Callighan noted the committee hasn’t met yet and “we don’t know what will be needed.” “At this stage, all sorts of things are on the table,” Callighan said. “It’s up in the air, but we want to be a part of the planning and implementation part of this process.”

Evergreen Village relocation moves forward U. of Illinois raising tuition by 1.7 percent By STEPHANIE HICKMAN

SYCAMORE – The county continues to make progress on the Evergreen Village Mobile Home Park mitigation project after recently receiving a $4.2 million federal grant. The DeKalb County Board’s Planning and Zoning Committee met Wednesday night to discuss actions they must take in to ensure the project is completed before a mandated deadline in June 2015. The 129-unit mobile-home park at 955 E. State St. is in a flood plain and has been the site of two major floods in the past six years. The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced a $4.2 million grant in June to fund relocation of the park’s residents and the demolition of the park. The the money became available this month. The federal grant will cover 75 percent of the project’s $5.6 million costs, and the state will provide the remaining $1.4 million. Project head Paul Miller, who is the Planning Director

The front of Evergreen Village is seen in Sycamore. The 129-unit mobile-home park is in a flood plain and has been the site of two major floods in the past six years. In 2012, the Federal Emergency Management Agency announced a $4.2 million grant to help fund the community’s mitigation project. of the American Institute of Certified Planners in DeKalb County, said the project is subject to both state and federal processes, which he described as complicated. Because the project is completely funded by the state and federal government, there are several regulations

by which the planning staff must abide. “We’ve not done a mitigation project of this scope and scale before,” he said. “This is new to us.” Miller told the committee that no county money would be used for relocation and demolition.

For the next steps, Miller said the county plans to name a project manager and must work with the Evergreen Village owner to ensure the park has at least a year’s notice before it closes. Miller predicted the project would take between 11⁄2 to two years.

CHAMPAIGN – Tuition for new in-state University of Illinois undergraduate students this fall will increase by 1.7 percent under a plan approved Thursday, marking the smallest tuition hike at the university in almost 20 years. When combined with coming increases in room and board and fees, though, the cost of a year of college for students living on campus will rise to almost $24,729 at the flagship campus in Urbana-Champaign (up 2.1 percent), $23,615 in Chicago (up 1.8 percent) and $21,489 in Springfield (an increase of 3.6 percent). The smaller tuition increase matches the rate of inflation for this year, Vice President for Academic Affairs Christophe Pierre told trustees during a meeting in Chicago. He said it is designed to balance the need for more revenue to pay top professors

and other costs to draw good students. “We want to recruit the highest class of students to the university, which certainly argues for keeping tuition increases to a minimum,” Pierre told trustees. Undergraduate tuition at Urbana-Champaign will increase $198 to $11,834 a year. Chicago campus undergraduates will see an increase of $174 to $10,406. And tuition in Springfield will increase $157.50 to $9,247.50. Trustees unanimously approved the plan without immediate comment, but university President Robert Easter said in a statement cost-savings programs over the past few years allowed the school to raise tuition by a smaller amount in spite of dwindling state support. Easter said the university’s role as a land-grant institution makes it important that tuition remain affordable for as many people in the state as possible.

Quinn signs law to educate students about sexual abuse By JASON KEYSER


The Associated Press

HOFFMAN ESTATES – Erin Merryn is convinced she would have spoken out much earlier if she had been taught at a young age about the threat of sexual abuse. Instead, she endured abuse at the hands of a neighbor and older cousin for years before seeking help. Now 27, the Illinois native is campaigning nationwide for states to pass laws requiring all public schools to make children aware of the dangers as early as pre-school. She achieved an important victory Thursday, when Gov. Pat Quinn signed Erin’s Law in her home state. “Had I been educated as a child, I would have spoken up and told the very first time,” Merryn said at a bill signing ceremony at a child advocacy center in the Chicago suburb of Hoffman Estates. It was there that she sought help as a 13-year-old, seven years after the abuse started. Merryn, who has written two books about her ordeal, quit her job in social work three years ago to campaign full time. She has encountered resistance from some lawmakers, including some in Illinois, who wonder where the funding will come from, whether overworked educators can take on another mandatory program and whether the subject matter can be taught in a way that’s appropriate for young children. She believes some of the pushback can be attributed to a stigma against reporting the

Erin Merryn, of Schaumburg, a sexual abuse victim, speaks at a news conference at a child advocacy center in Hoffman Estates on Thursday after Illinois Gov. Pay Quinn signed into law a bill called Erin’s Law. The law requires all Illinois public schools to have sexual assault and abuse prevention and awareness programs. sexual abuse of children and a general lack of understanding about the scope of the problem. “We’re talking about a silent epidemic,” Merryn said before the ceremony. “We live in a world where we want to look the other way and pretend this is not going on.” Through her campaigning, four other states have passed versions of Erin’s Law – Indiana, Maine, Michigan and Missouri. Quinn invited Merryn to join him at a meeting of the National Governors Association at the end of February to talk about the issue. He said Erin’s Law will “save and protect the lives of countless children.” The Illinois law goes into effect immediately and schools will have to implement it

starting next school year. Schools can draw on many age-appropriate programs that have already been created by experts, including some that use role playing to teach children to recognize inappropriate behavior. Merryn said many programs will visit schools for free, and that schools only need to devote an hour or two to the program each year. The law also requires educators to take part in training classes that cover sexual abuse and how to recognize warning signs. Merryn said children, even from a young age, should be told they’re not to blame and be encouraged to come forward and tell their parents or teachers if they are experiencing abuse.

Cameras coming soon to DeKalb County courtrooms DAILY CHRONICLE

SYCAMORE – DeKalb County has been added to a pilot program allowing news cameras into courtrooms. Illinois Supreme Court officials announced Tuesday that they accepted the 19th Judicial Circuit, which is comprised of Lake County, and the 23rd Circuit into the program, according to a news release. The 23rd Circuit is DeKalb and Kendall counties. Timothy McCann, chief judge in the 23rd Circuit, chaired the Courtroom Media Committee, which included prosecutors and public defenders from DeKalb and Kendall counties. That was before those two counties split from the 16th Judicial Circuit, which just now is comprised of Kane County.

“I believe that committee experience will enable the 23rd Circuit to implement the pilot program efficiently and quickly.” Timothy McCann Chief judge in 23rd Circuit “I chaired the committee and assisted the committee in developing suggested rules and procedures for the implementation of the program in our counties,” McCann said in the news release. “We also received input from the public at hearings. I believe that committee experience will enable the 23rd Circuit to implement the pilot program efficiently and quickly.” In the past year, 25 counties in nine judicial circuits statewide have participated in the program.

32 charged with unemployment fraud

CHICAGO – The state of Illinois will invest $9 million in infrastructure improvements at 19 airports. Gov. Pat Quinn announced the investment Wednesday. He said maintaining and improving the facilities is necessary to ensure the safety of airport workers and meet the needs of travelers. Quinn said the project will generate hundreds of jobs. It is funded by $7.3 million from Illinois Jobs Now, a multibillion-dollar building initiative Quinn signed into law in 2009. Another $1.6 million will come from local funds. The improvement projects include the rehabilitation of a terminal and some taxiways, aircraft parking ramps and changes to major parking lots. The state’s aviation system includes nearly 80 publicly owned airports. A recent local economic impact study found the system injects more than $40.9 billion annually to local economies.

CHICAGO – Federal prosecutors said 32 Chicago-area residents are charged with defrauding the state unemployment system of more than $870,000. The U.S. Attorney’s Office on Wednesday said the defendants were charged separately in the alleged scheme targeting the Illinois Department of Employment Security. Officials said the defendants either claimed to be unemployed or underreported their income to receive unearned benefits ranging from $19,400 to $38,800. Twenty-seven are charged with felonies; five are charged with misdemeanor theft. The felony counts carry penalties of up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, as well as mandatory restitution. The misdemeanor counts have a maximum penalty of a year in prison and a $100,000 fine. Illinois unemployment benefits

State board of education raises testing standards

CHICAGO – Officials with the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs are honoring a Chicago woman who served in the U.S. Navy. State officials have named Meosha Thomas as the January’s Veteran of the Month. It’s an award that recognizes veterans who give back to their communities. Thomas was an information systems technician for more than nine years. She was injured in 2006 and retired from the military. Since then, state officials said she has served as an employment specialist for veterans at the Illinois Department of Employment Security and helped veterans with career readiness. She’ll be honored this week in Chicago.

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Board of Education has made it tougher for students to be considered proficient on state tests. The board voted Thursday to raise the cut-off score for the Illinois Standards Achievement Test in English language arts and math. The change affects elementary and middle school students. State Superintendent of Education Christopher Koch said it’s “a significant step in changing how we measure a student’s progress.” Koch said the new, higher expectations will provide more accurate information about how students are doing. He said educators will be better able to identify students who need more help and ensure young people

Other organizations that received annual awards included Driv-Lok Inc., Kishwaukee College, DeKalb County Farm Bureau, Sycamore Antiques and the Jane Fargo Hotel. The hotel was recognized for its major rebranding that included new signage and the revitalization of the hotel’s restaurant, The Mitchel Lounge. Chamber President Rob Wilkinson, executive director of Kishwaukee Family YMCA, said 2012 was a banner year

but there still is work to be done. He said the chamber needs to focus on developing a longterm strategic plan, engaging young professionals even after they graduate from chamber programs and supporting and offering development resources for the many small businesses that have only a couple of employees. “We’re very excited about getting to that milestone but we realize we have tremendous work ahead of us,” Wilkinson said. “The easy work is behind us, the hard work is ahead of us.”

Military reps say standards won’t be lowered for women • cOMbaT

Continued from page A1 “Not everyone is going to be able to be a combat soldier. But everyone is entitled to a chance.” It won’t happen quickly or easily. But in the end, he said, the U.S. military and America will be stronger for it. Dempsey did not rule out women serving even as members of elite special operations forces, including the Army’s Delta Force and the Navy’s SEALs, whose members killed 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden. Dempsey said that because of the particularly punishing physical standards and training required for those teams, it might be years before they include women. But he added: “I think we all believe that there will be women who can meet those standards.” Recent surveys and experiences suggest the transition may not always be easy. When the Marine Corps sought women to go through its tough infantry course last year, two

volunteered, and both failed to complete the course. And there may not be a wide clamoring from women for the more intense, dangerous and difficult jobs, including some infantry and commando positions. Representatives of the military services said they will look at each job and military specialty that is currently closed to women and examine the requirements that troops must meet. In some cases – because of equipment upgrades, new technology and automation – the requirements may change, but in no case will they lower the standards in order to allow women to qualify. As an example, a loader on a tank crew must be able to lift a 50-pound, two-foot-long artillery shell, spin 180 degrees and load it into a tank’s cannon. Because of space constraints in the tank, it requires a great deal of upper body strength to hoist the shell. The Navy also announced that it is opening jobs for female sailors on smaller attack submarines – ships that had traditionally been closed to women largely because of privacy concerns in extremely close quarters.

Clinton schools Congress, teaches girls

So many times during Hillary Rodham Clinton’s testimony this week before Congress, I wanted to place one hand on the shoulder of every teenage girl in America, point at the TV screen with the other hand and whisper:

VIEWS Connie Schutlz

This. This is how it’s done.

Secretary of State Clinton showed up to answer tough and sometimes ridiculous questions regarding the deadly September 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. In the process, she offered a tutorial for today’s young women. Key points: 1. When a man asks you a question and then refuses to look at you as you answer, just keep going. Don’t let his rudeness silence you. 2. When he interrupts you, return the favor. 3. When he says things you know are not true, correct him. Repeatedly. 4. When he attempts to bully you, mow him down with facts. 5. And whenever possible, smile. Nothing rattles an angry man like a woman who looks happy to annoy him. Pundits have launched another round of debate over everything Hillary. After her Senate hearing in the morning, Politico posted a gallery of her facial expressions. The Huffington Post ran a photo caption contest. When Clinton’s voice broke as she described meeting with families of the four diplomats who died, the coverage echoed the second-guessing of an emotional moment during the 2008 New Hampshire primary. Did she choke up (ABC News) or tear up (Bloomberg News)? Or was she merely “close

to tears” (The Daily Beast)? Or was she “tearsyncing” (Michelle Malkin)? Here’s what she said in that emotional moment: “For me, this is not just a matter of policy; it’s personal. I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flagdraped caskets off the plane at Andrews. I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children.” Clinton pushed back on Republican Sen. Ron Johnson’s rant full of accusations and interruptions over the State Department’s initial report that the Benghazi attack was a reaction to an anti-Islam YouTube video. Various accounts described her response as “wrangling,” “testy,” “erupting” and “blowing up.” An excerpt of their exchange: Johnson: “But, Madam Secretary, do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn’t have ascertained immediately that there was no protest? I mean, that was a piece of information that could’ve been easily, easily obtained –” Clinton: “Well, but, Senator, again –” Johnson: “– within hours, if not days.” Clinton: “Senator, you know, when you’re in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on,

No. 1 –” Johnson: “I realize that’s a good excuse.” Clinton: “Well, no, it’s the fact. No. 2: I would recommend highly you read both what the (Accountability Review Board) said about it and the classified ARB, because even today, there are questions being raised. Now, we have no doubt they were terrorists; they were militants; they attacked us; they killed our people. But what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing is still unknown –” Johnson: “No, again, we were misled...” Clinton: “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.” Dear God, if that’s an eruption, make me a volcano. One last thing: A Washington Post/ABC News poll last week showed that Clinton has the highest approval ratings of her long public life. Interestingly, 67 percent of Americans like her, whereas only 19 percent said they approve of the job Congress is doing. That, young ladies, is Hillary for the win.

If you’re a vendor with the state of Illinois, it’s likely that you’re worried about getting paid. As of Wednesday, the state had a backlog of more than 209,000 vouchers, according to the Illinois Comptroller’s website. State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka has asked lawmakers to transfer more than $1 billion from financially sound programs to agencies running out of money, including those that serve children and the disabled. Illinois having fiscal problems is nothing new, nor is the fact that state lawmakers have yet to get serious about solving them. New lawmaker state Rep. Charlie Meier, a Republican from a town 40 miles outside St. Louis called Okawville, has proposed a bold, albeit doomed, idea. Meier proposes that salaries, travel expenses and per diems for the state’s constitutional officers and For the record General Assembly members not be paid until the state’s The Illinois Observer vendors are paid. quoted an anonymous lobIn the “Fresh Ideas” byist as calling Rep.

We have no doubt the financially would not spend bill never will called for a more, but figure out what to vote. cut and where income can And that’s a shame.

The Illinois Observer quoted an anonymous lobbyist as calling Meier’s proposal a stunt. And maybe it is. We have no doubt the bill never will be called for a vote. And that’s a shame. It should at least be considered. Why should the lawmakers who got the state into this financial quagmire be paid for continuing to kick the can down the road on solving it? Calling the proposal for a debate would provide an opportunity for lawmakers who have mouthed platitudes about wanting to dig the state out of debt a chance to put their money where their mouth is. Legislators are elected to do what is best for the residents of Illinois, and they continue to fail in that endeavor. Perhaps the threat of a loss of pay – something many in Illinois have often faced during the past several years – will be the push lawmakers need to finally get serious about finding solutions.


Rule change would help the U.S. Senate For six years, Democrats in the Senate have chafed at an unprecedented abuse of the filibuster by Republicans, who have used the practice to hold up nominees high and low and require a supermajority for virtually every bill. But now that they finally have an opportunity to end much of this delay and abuse, Democrats are instead considering only a few half-measures. When the Senate returns Tuesday, it still will technically be in the first legislative day of the session, which means only a simple majority is necessary to change the rules for the rest of the session. With the support of 51 senators, the rules could be changed to require a “talking filibuster,” forcing those objecting to a bill to stand and explain their reasons, at length. The current practice of routinely requiring a 60vote majority for a bill through a silent objection would end, breaking the logjam that has made the chamber a well of inefficiency and frustration. Several younger senators, led by Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Tom Udall of New Mexico, say that if pressed, a majority of the Senate would support their plan for the talking filibuster. But older senators aren’t so sure, and have reportedly persuaded Harry Reid, the majority leader, to back off the idea. With the experience of having been in the minority themselves, these Democrats are fearful of losing a powerful tool should Republicans ever return to power in the chamber. That would squander a moment for change. Supermajorities were never intended to be a routine legislative barrier; they should be reserved for the most momentous bills, and the best way to make that happen is to require that objectors work hard for their filibuster, assembling a like-minded coalition and being forthright about their concerns rather than hiding in the shadows or holding up a bill with an e-mailed note. Currently there are six opportunities to filibuster most bills, and Republicans have exploited them all. Mr. Reid wants to reduce those opportunities and speed things up, primarily by ending the filibuster on motions to proceed to debate on bills. That change alone could a cut a week of delay on most measures. He also wants to curb filibusters that prevent conference committees from meeting and that hold up some presidential nominations. A faster-moving Senate would be useful, but that should not be the only goal. The best way to end the Senate’s sorry history of inaction is to end the silent filibuster, forcing lawmakers to explain themselves if they want to block legislation supported by the majority.

Hornets announce name change to Pelicans NEW ORLEANS – Hornets owner Tom Benson is changing his team’s nickname to the Pelicans and said the switch will create a bond with the city that could lead to a championship. The Hornets announced Thursday they are going ahead with the name change. The NBA still has to approve it, but commissioner David Stern has said he wouldn’t object to any name Benson chose. The league is expected to expedite the change at the start of next season. The new color scheme is blue, gold and red, a departure from the Hornets’ teal, purple, gold and white. The Hornets have been in New Orleans since moving from Charlotte for the 200203 season. – Wire report

Spartanettes have a doubleheader, too And itinerary will get busier if team makes Saturday’s finals By ROSS JACOBSON Alison Karsten was surprised when she heard the news. Karsten and her fellow Sycamore Spartanettes already knew they had qualified for the first-ever IHSA state finals for competitive dance in Bloomington today by finishing fifth in Saturday’s Minonk Sectional. But the more noteworthy announcement came Tuesday when the IHSA announced the performance order for today’s preliminary round. Coach Alyssa Pawola told the team via email that Sycamore’s performance time of 3:15 p.m. would allow the Spartanettes

spartanettes coach alyssa pawola queues up a portion of boyce avenue’s cover of “teenage Dream” for the team to rehearse Jan. 8. to compete at state and travel back to DeKalb for their performance during the Sycamore-DeKalb boys/girls basketball doubleheader.

“I was really excited,” Karsten said. “I honestly knew the chances of us being able to do both were pretty slim, so it’s really good that it works out.”

For the past few weeks, Sycamore worried about the possibility of having to choose between competing in the state competition or performing in front of the biggest crowd of the year at Northern Illinois University’s Convocation Center. After Sycamore qualified Saturday, the school put in a request to the IHSA to have its performance time earlier in the schedule. The IHSA appears to have considered Sycamore’s situation, giving the Spartanettes the first spot in the Class 2A/3A afternoon session at 3:15. Then the planning started. After a short practice at school Thursday afternoon, Sycamore drove to Bloomington. To get one final tuneup session in before both performances today, Sycamore rented space at a local YMCA and will practice there this morning.

Rich Harvest Farms owner Jerry Rich often ventures onto his golf course without his clubs, absorbing the solace of a private playground he developed from Sugar Grove soil. There were far more visitors during the summer of 2009 than Rich typically is accustomed, but he still found time and space to think. Rich began Jerry Rich outlining the premise for the LPGA’s new International Crown match-play event when the Solheim Cup descended on the course nearly four years ago. On Thursday, he sat in a ballroom at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., as LPGA officials announced his partial brainchild would be coming to Rich Harvest Farms in 2016. A biennial event composed of 32 players from eight countries – far more expansive than the Solheim’s United Statesagainst-Europe format and indicative of the LPGA’s global reach – the International Crown will debut at Caves Valley outside Baltimore in July

Team USA walks arm in arm across the 18th green after winning the 2009 Solheim Cup at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove. 2014. Rich Harvest will host two years later, and is a candidate to serve as the permanent Crown venue after that. “I knew in ’09 that the LPGA had a wonderful product,” Rich said Thursday. “But when the best players in the world aren’t from America, you know, you’ve got to start doing some changing on how you market the product.” In 2012, seven of the LPGA’s top 10 money-winners were of Asian descent. Nine countries are represented in the current Rolex World Rankings top 20. World No. 1 Yani Tseng, a 24-year-old from Taiwan, praised the opportunity to bring more nationalism into the sport at a Thursday news conference in Orlando. “I always feel like I play for

my country but I never really [italics] play [italics] for my country,” she told reporters. Rich worked with LPGA officials, including commissioner Mike Whan, to develop the Crown, which will complement the Solheim Cup. Fans, media and even some players long have asked about the absence of a setting that allows the best women’s golfers worldwide to compete in a team format. Per a PowerPoint presentation shown at the news conference, the Crown is the “ultimate world team golf pressure-cooker to produce for your homeland.” “The tournament’s going to be huge,” Rich said, “We raised the bar for the Solheim Cup, so we’re going to exceed that when this gets there in ’16.”

About 1,600 volunteers were part of the effort when the Solheim Cup drew an estimated 120,000 fans to Sugar Grove over four days. Rich Harvest Farms – the home course of the men’s and women’s teams at Rich’s alma mater, Northern Illinois – since has hosted a handful of NCAA postseason tournaments and top junior events. Upcoming tournaments include a 2014 NCAA men’s regional and The Western Golf Association’s 2015 Western Amateur and 2017 Centennial Western Junior. Rich also is planning a special 2014 event for high school and junior girls players from five states that would have conflicted with the inaugural Crown. “Growing the game” has been his platform for some time, long before Rich Harvest Farms’ beginnings as three personal holes on Rich’s property. The LPGA is building its own momentum, gradually adding tournaments, corporate sponsors and airtime with its TV partner, The Golf Channel, in the past few years. Now, here comes the Crown and another international golf event in Kane County at a tobe-determined summer date in 2016. “Let’s let countries be countries,” Whan told reporters. “Let’s introduce something to the world of golf that’s going to really take advantage of the women’s game.”

Hossa scores Hawks’ winner in overtime The ASSOCIATED PRESS DALLAS – Marian Hossa scored his NHL-leading fifth goal on a power play 1:41 into overtime to give the Blackhawks a 3-2 comeback victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. With Dallas captain Brenden Morrow in the penalty box for interference, Hossa fired a one-timer past goalie Kari Lehtonen after receiving a nifty, behind-the-back pass from Patrick Kane. Patrick Sharp had a goal and an assist for the Hawks, who improved to 4-0 and matched the franchise’s best start set during the 1972-73 season. Corey Crawford made 21 saves and stopped Ryan Garbutt on a penalty shot. The Hawks’ high-powered offense, which racked up 14 goals in the previous three games, needed the manadvantage to score all three Thursday night.

Insider Indian Creek snaps lengthy streak

A closer look at the girls basketball scene

SPOTLIGHT ON ... LAUREN GOFF Sycamore, freshman, guard Sycamore coach Brett Goff’s only issue with his point guard’s offensive play early in the season was that she wasn’t shooting enough. The coach’s daughter didn’t have that problem in a 49-48 overtime win over Kaneland on Jan. 18, when she finished with 16 points. Goff has been an important defensive presence for the Spartans all season, and her offense is coming along.


Sycamore vs. DeKalb at the NIU Convocation Center, 6 p.m. today The Spartans haven’t seen anything like the DeKalb defense this season.

Sterling at Kaneland, 4 p.m. Saturday The Knights will try to bounce back from an overtime loss to Sycamore.


1. DeKalb (19-3, 7-0 NI Big 12 East) Barbs had one of their better defensive games Tuesday, holding United Township to 17 points. 2. Kaneland (12-8, 4-4 NI Big 12 East) The Knights suffered a tough loss to Sycamore last week. 3. Sycamore (9-9, 2-5 NI Big 12 East) The Spartans had a big win over Kaneland to split the season series. 4. Indian Creek (12-13, 4-4 Little Ten) A third-place finish in the LTC tournament with a win over Hinckley-Big Rock was a big step. 4. Hinckley-Big Rock (13-12, 6-1 LTC) The Royals rebounded from a loss to Indian Creek with a win over Lisle. 6. Hiawatha (7-13, 1-4 LTC) The Hawks will look to rebound as the final stretch of the regular season approaches. 7. Genoa-Kingston (2-21, 1-8 Big Northern East) The Cogs barely missed out on their second BNC East win in a four-point loss to Marengo on Tuesday.

By ANTHONY ZILIS Paul Muchmore can’t remember exactly how long it had been since the Indian Creek girls basketball team beat HinckleyBig Rock. But the Timberwolves coach knows it had been years since their last win against the Royals before Friday’s 26-23 win in the Little Ten Conference tournament’s third-place game ended the streak. “It’s probably been eight or nine years,” Muchmore said. “It’s been on our minds because we’ve been really beat up by them. It was a nice confidence boost.” H-BR beat Indian Creek, 48-31, in December, but the Timberwolves have come a long way since then. Indian Creek picked up the win Friday even after starting post player Josie Diehl suffered a head injury early. “It was nice to see several girls step up in different spots,” Muchmore said.

Royals rebound Hinckley-Big Rock rebounded from a rough loss to Indian Creek last week with a 40-34 win over Lisle on Tuesday. The Royals trailed by nine late in the third quarter before surging to the win in the fourth. “We did it by playing well on the defensive side of the floor and

Serena defeated H-BR, 37-35. by being efficient on the offensive end of the floor,” H-BR coach Greg Burks said. “We didn’t take a lot of shots, but we got good opportunities for the most part, limited turnovers, especially in crunch time, and were good from the freethrow line. At some point in time, if you hope to beat someone of significance down the road, that’s what it’s going to take.”

Johnson making big strides After missing about half of the 2011-12 season, sophomore Madelyne Johnson has been a key piece for DeKalb this year. Johnson and Courtney Bemis combine to make a formidable front line. But Johnson, at 6-foot1, also has been forced to play more on the perimeter with point

guard Brittney Patrick out for the past few games. “This is really her first full year at the varsity level, getting back, so everything she gives us is a plus,” coach Chris Davenport said. “I knew she was good, and I knew what she could do. Her biggest attribute is that she can go inside and outside.”

Conference tourney has detractor, but still fun The Little Ten Conference tournament is a fun tradition. A few weeks before the regular season ends, conference teams get together for a week to decide on a champion, although the regularseason title still holds weight. But the tournament also is polarizing, and Greg Burks admits he wouldn’t be disappointed if it came to an end. “I don’t know, if they were to do away with it, it wouldn’t hurt my feelings too much,” the Hinckley-Big Rock coach said. “You would just as soon not play

VIEWS Anthony Zilis [certain teams] three times in a season like happens sometimes.” Burks does admit that it’s beneficial in a way, because it helps prepare teams for the postseason. But he said he’d enter his team in another tournament if the LTC tournament went away. Paul Muchmore likes that his team can get used to a tourna-

ment setting a few weeks before the state playoffs begin. “I like tournament-style play, you’ve got to go back to back, you don’t know who your [next-round] opponent’s going to be,” Muchmore said. While it’s strange to crown a tournament champion a few weeks before the regular season ends, the fact that a conference tournament is still in existence is fun. It gives teams that might not be in the running for the regularseason title a chance to win a championship, and the timing

gives teams a chance to recoup for the state playoffs after a tough week of basketball. As Burks put it, “If you talked to 10 different people, you’d get 10 different opinions on the tournament.” With few tournaments like it in the area, the LTC tournament stands as a unique tradition that has stood the test of time.

Barbs have upper hand in girls game Daily Chronicle sports editor Ross Jacobson and sports reporter Steve Nitz spend their days covering the area’s sports scene. Occasionally, they give their viewpoints on those local sports. In this installment of their Take 2 column, they discuss tonight’s basketball doubleheader between DeKalb and Sycamore.

TAKE 2 Ross Jacobson and Steve Nitz face off

Jacobson: The DeKalb-Sycamore basketball doubleheader at the Northern Illinois Convocation Center is always one of the most anticipated nights during the high school basketball season. Let’s start off with the girls game, which will lead off the evening. What do you think are a couple crucial matchups or things to watch? Nitz: Here’s one thing that catches my eye when looking at this game: DeKalb is a veteran team, a group that made a super-sectional last season. The Barbs have been in these types of games before. The Spartans, on the other hand, don’t have as much experience playing in an atmosphere like tonight’s, when the Convocation Center will have more fans than any

NIU basketball game this season. We’ll see how Brett Goff’s young team responds. In terms of matchups, I’m interested to see how DeKalb’s defense tries to handle sophomore Bailey Gilbert, the Spartans’ leading scorer. Ross, what jumps out at you when studying this game? Jacobson: I’m looking forward to the battle of point guards where two of the area’s best freshmen will be matching up for the first time. DeKalb’s Brittney Patrick and Sycamore’s Lauren Goff both should be a lot of fun to watch over the next four years. Patrick already is one of the most athletic guards in the area and can get to the basket with ease. Goff also is capable of attacking the rim, but possesses a steady outside jumper, as well. Let’s switch over to the boys side where the rivalry has been one-sided over the past five seasons. What does Sycamore have

to do to stop an 11-game losing streak to the Barbs? Nitz: I think the main thing the Spartans have to do is find a way to handle Jake Smith and Andre Harris in the post. Those two are tough to stop when they’re on. DeKalb didn’t fare too well in the Hononegah Martin Luther King tournament, but the 6-foot-6 Smith was one player who stood out for the Barbs. We’ll see if Sycamore posts Scott Nelson and Ben Niemann are up to the challenge. Jacobson: Maybe it’s because I was always a guard during my playing days, but I’ll go back to the point guard position as one to watch. I think DeKalb sophomore Rudy Lopez will play a big role. If he’s hitting open shots and playing under control, the Barbs offense can be efficient in stretches. For the Barbs, it boils down to turnovers. To have a chance at extending the winning streak,

To second-year Spartans “There’s an elephant in the coach Andrew Stacy, this room,” he said. “They know game is important and not nec- the atmosphere and what it’s essarily because of the rivalry. like on Friday night.” “It will be big just because Both teams held a practice it’s a conference win and we there this week to get used to need as many conference wins playing on a different court, as we can right now,” he said which has different shooting “Everyone’s going to dwell backgrounds and is 10 feet upon, well it’s 10, 11 times in a longer than the normal high row they’ve beaten us. These school floor.

“One of the things we do when we get over there is we run some full-court drills because what we find is our kids end up thinking, ‘Well, I’ve run this far, and then I look down and I’m 10 feet, or 5 feet short of where I’m supposed to be on the wings and things,’ ” DeKalb coach Dave Rohlman said. “Those are things we have to get used to.” One thing Stacy tells his team is to just cherish the experience of playing in a college arena, something most high school kids don’t get the chance to do each season. “It’s once a year and they should enjoy it,” he said. “It’s something they should remember the rest of their lives.”

DeKalb needs to keep the number of turnovers closer to 10 rather than 20. When it’s all said and done, who are you taking in both sides of the doubleheader? Nitz: I’m going with a split. This DeKalb girls team is loaded, I don’t see the Barbs losing in Northern Illinois Big 12 East play, and they should get a victory tonight. The boys side is a little tougher to pick, but I’ll take Sycamore to win for the first time since 2007. What do you see? Can the Spartan girls pull off an upset? Do the DeKalb boys win yet again? Jacobson: I’ll agree with you on the girls side. Sycamore has only one senior on the roster. That makes the Spartans a team to look at in the upcoming years, but I think the Barbs will be too much for Sycamore tonight. For the boys, I’ll go with history and take the Barbs. A lot of DeKalb’s issues in the first half of the season have come from inconsistency on the offensive end. There should be no lack of focus for DeKalb in this rivalry game and I’ll pick the Barbs to extend the streak.

Daily Chronicle /

Torres, Patrick lead veteran DeKalb team • GIRLS BASKETBALL Continued from page B1

The Barbs’ roster is a mix of talented youth infused with savvy veterans. Daily Chronicle AllArea players Rachel Torres and Patrick bolster a backcourt highlighted by freshman point guard Brittney Patrick, who might play tonight after missing Tuesday’s win over United Township with an injury. Sophomore Madelyne Johnson and junior Courtney Bemis, who both are taller than 6 feet, make the Barbs a tough team to stop inside. Sycamore, on the other hand, is young all around. Sophomore Bailey Gilbert headlines a team that’s thin on experience, but isn’t short on talent. “From what I’ve seen, it seems like they’re always a battle,” DeKalb coach Chris Davenport said. “[Games against Sycamore are] always tight, especially in the [Convocation Center]. Records really don’t matter. … When you’re young and you don’t have a whole lot to lose, you don’t think about it as much. … It’s going to be a fight, and we know it.” The Spartans are riding a high in an up-anddown season after beating Kaneland, 49-48, in overtime Jan. 18. DeKalb held that same Kaneland team to 17 points in December to hand the Knights their first loss. “We’d have to play almost perfect [to win],” Goff said. “We’re just going to have to do a very good job of executing our offense, not turning the ball over, especially in the backcourt, giving them easy opportunities for uncontested layups. Everyone’s going to have to step up.”

The Rev. Gary Hall, new dean of Washington National Cathedral in Washington, begins a baptism service on Jan. 13. Hall calls himself a “left-wing Democrat” and favors a strict approach to gun control, which he says is a religious issue.

New Calling At National Cathedral, dean preaches the gospel of activism By MICHELLE BOORSTEIN The Washington Post


mbitious and outspoken, the new head of Washington National Cathedral has attracted more attention over the past few weeks than previous cathedral deans have for decades. The Rev. Gary Hall’s announcement that the cathedral, the seat of the Episcopal Church, would host same-sex weddings and his immediate embrace of gun control in the hours after the school massacre in Newtown, Conn., have made him a regular on national television. On Thursday, Hall was the only representative of the clergy speaking at a Capitol Hill news conference where Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., introduced a bill that would ban dozens of assault weapons. One recent morning, Hall zoomed around town to three television appearances in an hour, triggering stares in network studios as he sat in his priest’s collar getting his makeup done while the usual pundits and politicos came and went. His sermon two days after the Newtown shootings – “The gun lobby is no match for the cross lobby,” he said – got a rare standing ovation. “You have to know how stodgy this place is,” he said, referring to the cathedral. “And it wasn’t like ‘bravo’ for an opera singer; it was: ‘Thank God someone is finally using the pulpit to speak about something we care about.’” It was partly Hall’s comfort in the media spotlight and with controversy that landed him the job in the fall of transforming the cathedral from a dimming star struggling to boost its profile and fundraising to a hot spot for community activism and debate. Newtown dropped the gun-control issue into his lap months later. But as someone drawn to religion in the ’60s by activist antiwar, antisegregation chaplains raring to make a scene, he believes he can use this. He can use it to hold the church up as the place that provides justice and hope in the dark times. That message fueled a generation of progressive religion and activism, and Hall is among

those who hope it can again today. On Sunday, Hall made that connection explicit when he preached about gun violence from the pulpit at the cathedral, from which the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his last Sunday sermon before he was shot dead in Memphis, Tenn. “In the spirit of Dr. King, I want to say that opposing gun violence may have political implications, but it is not primarily a political issue. It is a religious issue,” Hall preached. “If we want to stand with Jesus and with Martin Luther King, we’ve also got to stand with those who, like them, die by means of violence. And that means we who follow Jesus and stand with King have to stand against guns.” Yet even on a roll, Hall knows the challenges facing this clergy-led crusade. He worries about the limits of news conferences in a world where it’s hard to get people’s attention. He knows clergy, like Americans, are divided on the efficacy of gun restrictions. He agonizes about the mostly white pastors at these recent gun control events. PICO, a major faith-based advocacy group, wrote in a letter to Vice President Biden that the “main question” clergy are asking is whether White Housebacked measures will focus as much on urban violence as on sprees like the one in Newtown. Hall understands that some think white America is late to this issue. “Black clergy in this area have said zero about [Newtown]. We need to build relationships,” he says. But right now, he knows there is momentum. As leader of one of the country’s most prominent churches – and the site of Tuesday’s official inaugural prayer service, complete with the Obamas – Hall is being interviewed daily about measures he and a team of clergy leaders are promoting. Ushers handed out 10,000 call-yourlawmaker cards to worshippers over the Christmas period. Hall and the Washington diocese’s bishop, Mariann Budde, traveled to Johns Hopkins University this week for a summit on gun control. They are soliciting criticism from gun-owning

Episcopalians, hoping to broaden their pool of allies. Hall is advocating for something striking to keep the subject on people’s minds. He likes the idea of wrapping the towering Gothic cathedral in black crepe in memory of gun violence victims. Or ringing its massive bells each morning to toll the number of deaths each day. Something that gets people’s attention. “What I want to do is more like guerilla theater,” he said. Budde, like Hall, knows that for now there’s a limit to the impact two white mainline Christians can have when they’re new in town (she came in late 2011). But they also know they have a community packed with influential members who are, whether Democrat or Republican, largely open to Hall’s argument that it’s time for a change on gun policy. “Our plan is to mobilize people who never go first but are willing to go second,” Budde said last week after a packed news conference of clergy calling for a list of new gun measures. Hall is seen as someone who may be able to smooth the racial and political jagged edges of this issue. While he calls himself a “left-wing Democrat” who would be just as happy with severe limits (like England’s) on firearms, his actual track record is more problem-solver than bomb-thrower. Throughout his career, he has been called in to fix institutions. When people started in the 1990s to talk openly about sex abuse and misconduct, he became the point man in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles and handled 21 major cases, mostly involving adults. When it became clear that Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Illinois was failing financially, Hall was brought in to radically shrink and overhaul it. And as homosexuality became a bigger and more divisive issue in the Episcopal Church, Hall was one of a tiny group picked to build theological support for equality. “He’s like the Joe Biden of the Episcopal Church. He has the personality and respect that can bring people together,” said the Rev. Susan Russell, a priest at All Saint’s

Pasadena, a 4,000-member Los Angeles church where Hall worked for 11 years. All Saint’s is seen as a model of a thriving, politically outspoken liberal church at a time when mainline churches are largely shrinking. Hall grew up with secular, divorced parents in Hollywood. His father, Huntz Hall, was a successful film actor in the ‘40s and ‘50s, and his mother was Leslie Hall, costume designer for Mary Tyler Moore. Hall himself wrote jokes for Steve Allen on “The Tonight Show” before stumbling into religion at Yale and then Berkeley through activist priests who inspired him during a period of political chaos. “I thought it was pretty cool to see a place where there seemed to be hope and transcendence in a time of violence. That things weren’t all bleak, that there was some redemptive process,” he said. To him, that process involves “having a big mouth,” as he puts it. Hall likes to be frank about what he sees as a desperate need for an overhaul in the mainline. If he has his druthers, he’d make interfaith efforts about more than just “a bunch of men in robes talking about abstract things.” He’d change the Episcopalian focus on elite, private schools “and show we care.” And of course, the Cathedral would be less of a “museum” and “more a place with a mission.” Not that Hall wasn’t expecting to be doing any of it in this stage of his life. He was expecting, he said, to retire at his last job, as rector of a large parish in suburban Detroit. But then he got a last-minute call from Washington. And now he has plans – for gun control and education and housing, modeled off an All Saint’s program that buys up city properties gentrifiers are eyeing and turns them into affordable housing. Whether this child of Hollywood can bring his dreams to life, he doesn’t know. “In some sense, we’re like the Republican Party and the tea party – we have aging constituencies,” he said. “But I have a cathedral full of people who want to have an impact. We need to think about how to do that.”

SUMC hosts 58th pancake supper

Provided photo

Guests enjoy a pay-as-you-can breakfast at the Welcome Café & Community Kitchen. The next meal will be Saturday.

Welcome Café will host its next brunch Saturday

The Unitarian Universalist Church will host a breakfast for the community from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the church located at 158 N. Fourth St., DeKalb. The meal will be provided on a free-will donation basis. The menu will include egg casseroles, steel cut oatmeal, fresh fruit and breads from Sweet Dreams Desserts and Catering in Sycamore. The Welcome Café & Community Kitchen served its first breakfast last May and began its monthly brunch Dec. 15. Located at the Unitar-

ian Church, the WCCK will not only serve brunch but also provide community resources such as Illinois WorkNet and banking services for anyone in need. WCCK also has partnered with Northern Illinois University’s Bread for the World service fraternity for volunteers and Voluntary Action Center for transportation. WCCK uses the pay-as-youcan model for its Saturday brunches which has been used successfully by many community kitchens such as Panera and Feed’Em Soup.

Daily Chronicle /

Mother of twin boys worries they’re too close Dear Abby: I am the single mother of identical twin boys. They insist on dressing alike and use their own secret language. I have always had trouble telling them apart. When they were young, it was cute, but as they are growing older I’m starting to worry. They’re 12. When they oversleep, they shower together to save time. Their teacher took me aside during a conference and said they seem to be overly affectionate with each other and might benefit from some time with a masculine role model. When I

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips questioned her, she said there is gossip that they were seen touching and possibly even kissing. My research has brought up the idea of “twincest,” and I am worried my boys may be falling฀into฀these฀habits.฀How฀ would you suggest making them stop? Everyone keeps suggesting separation, but they share a room and I don’t

have another one or the money฀to฀build฀one.฀Help!฀–฀Mom With Two Much Trouble Dear Mom: You obviously love your boys, but please stop worrying. According to David Baron, M.D. – an internationally respected psychiatrist฀at฀the฀University฀of฀Southern฀California฀ – at this point one of the most harmful things you could do is to blow this out of proportion. Twins have a special bond. They feel safer with each other than with their peers. If this persists, consult a therapist, for your peace

of mind if nothing else. But please do not jump the gun because of gossip. Dear Abby: I wear dentures. I have never gone out in public฀without฀them.฀However,฀I฀ have seen people I know take them out in restaurants, etc. It is not only awful to look at, but don’t they realize how they look? Am I shallow for not wanting anyone to see me without my “smile”? Is there some social etiquette that’s being broken? – Toothless in Colorado Dear Toothless: Of course there is. The active word here

is “discretion.” If a dental appliance is ill-fitting and uncomfortable, it should not be left on the table or displayed like a goldfish in a glass of water for all to admire. And need I add that a trip to the dentist should be scheduled ASAP to remedy the problem?

•฀Dear฀Abby฀is฀written฀ by Abigail Van Buren, also known฀as฀Jeanne฀Phillips,฀ and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440,฀Los฀Angeles,฀CA฀90069.

Detached retina calls for immediate attention Dear Dr. K: My father was diagnosed with a detached retina. The doctor said this isn’t uncommon in older people, and that he could have gone blind without treatment. What are the symptoms of, and treatments for, this condition, so I can protect myself? Dear Reader: Detached retinas can indeed lead to permanent blindness if they are not treated promptly. The good news is that, compared to when I was in medical school, today’s treatments are much more effective. Your retina is the lightsensitive layer of special cells at the back of your eye. When light passes into your eye, it falls on the retina. There, the light is converted into nerve impulses that are relayed to

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff the brain. When your brain interprets these impulses, you “see.” Normally, your retina lies directly on top of other cells and blood vessels that support and nourish it. If the retina separates from these underlying cells and vessels, it cannot function properly. Retinal detachment typically starts when a tear or hole develops in the retina. Then some of the vitreous fluid, which fills the inside of the eye, leaks through the opening, gets behind the retina and separates it from the nourishing tissue just be-

neath it. (I’ve put an illustration of this on my website.) The symptoms you have depend on where the retina detaches. You may experience a sudden blurring or loss of vision, or you may feel as if a curtain has been drawn over one side of your eye. If ever you have these symptoms, call your doctor or your ophthalmologist (eye doctor) immediately. Other symptoms may include floaters or brief flashes of light. Floaters are fairly common and usually do not mean you have a retinal detachment. Nevertheless, if the floaters are suddenly much more prominent and persistent than usual, get it checked out. Likewise, brief flashes of light are more often caused by migraines than by retinal

detachment. Nevertheless, if they are more severe than usual – particularly if you don’t have a headache and nausea, which usually occur with migraines – check it out. Several techniques are available to treat retinal detachment: •฀Scleral฀buckling.฀A฀tiny฀ hole is made in the sclera, the tough layer beneath the retina. Any vitreous fluid that has leaked behind the retina is drained through this tiny hole, allowing the detached retina to fall back into its normal position. Next, a small tuck or indentation is made in the sclera and secured with a silicone buckle. •฀Cryotherapy.฀The฀retinal฀ tear is sealed with a freezing probe. •฀Laser฀photocoagulation.฀

The retinal tear is sealed with a laser beam. •฀Pneumopexy.฀A฀bubble฀ of special gas is injected near the area of retinal detachment to press the retina back into place. •฀Vitrectomy.฀Part฀of฀the฀ vitreous fluid is removed near the detachment and replaced with a sterile saline solution or some other fluid. Never hesitate to contact your doctor or eye doctor immediately if you have symptoms that could indicate retinal detachment. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Girlfriend thinks man has a drinking problem Dr. Wallace: I’m 20, and in love with a beautiful young lady. Someday soon I would like her to be my wife. We have been dating for about a year and have great times together. She says she’d marry me if I stopped drinking. Actually, I learned to drink responsibly when I was 17. My parents encouraged me to drink at home and not with friends. I now drink with friends, but I rarely get out of control. I do not have a drinking problem, but how can I convince my girlfriend of this fact? – Rick Rick: The National Drug Awareness Program says a person has a drinking problem if the following signs are

8ASTROGRAPH By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association

TODAY – For many years, you might have been of the opinion that fortuitous things happened to others, not you. That is all likely to change in the year ahead, as your luck will take a positive turn that even you can’t deny. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Disappointment is likely if someone for whom you do a favor is unable to adequately express his or her thanks. You’ll feel better if you don’t expect anything. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – A burned child fears the fire, but you’re not a kid anymore. Stop shunning a former collaborator just because he or she erred in the past. Be the bigger person and forgive and forget. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – You’re in a better position careerwise than you might think. Though you might see only dark clouds ahead, don’t retreat from doing what you should and can do. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Because all your focus is placed on lofty objectives, it might be difficult for you to see the multitudes of lesser but still profitable opportunities. Remember, small things can add up. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Although a joint venture in which you’re involved should be uppermost in your mind, this isn’t likely to be the case. Diverting your attention elsewhere could dilute your efforts. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – There is a hard way to do things and an easy way. Even though you might recognize the difference, for some reason you’ll make things tougher than they need to be. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – If you find yourself in the position of being unable to finalize an important project, don’t make things worse by stewing over it. Let those fruits ripen a bit longer on the tree. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Don’t turn your household into a military installation. Harsh rules and commands won’t be nearly as effective as making polite pleas. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Remember, the mind is a remarkable mechanism for performing wonders. All you have to do is marshal your thinking to conquer doubt and accomplish whatever you wish. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Because of an inability to capitalize on a good opportunity, the biggest problem you’ll have to contend with is accepting your shortcomings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – It might be wise to analyze your desire for something material. There’s a chance you may be seeking it for the wrong reasons. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Even though you might be truly grateful to someone who does a favor for you, you might be unable to express your gratitude in a way that you feel is adequate. Nonetheless, do your best.

the party? •฀Have฀blackouts฀or฀an฀occasional inability to remember what happened when you were drinking? •฀Have฀problems฀in฀school฀ or at work because of excessive alcohol consumption? •฀Hear฀words฀of฀concern฀ from family members and friends about your drinking? If you answered yes to even one of these questions, you’d be a better person if you eliminated alcohol from your life! You are not a problem drinker if all of your answers to these questions were “No.” Dr. Wallace: About a month ago, I met a young lady at a friend’s holiday party. I


didn’t stay long, but I asked for her phone number before I left, and she gave it to me. I’ve gone out with her three times and had super times. Last night, I ran into a friend at the mall who knows this girl and asked if I was still dating her, and I said yes. She then said, “Do you know that she is married, but separated from her husband, and that she is 22 years old?” Wow, this really blew my mind. I called Eden, and she confirmed all this was true. She also said that she had a 2-year-old son who was staying with her mother. I really care for Eden, and she said that she still wanted to go out with me. What should I do?

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

I’m 18 and will be attending Perdue฀University฀in฀the฀fall.฀ – Nameless, Indianapolis, Ind. Nameless: If you were not going to the university and had a full-time job and Eden was legally separated or divorced, I’d say continue seeing her. But that’s not the case, so end the relationship with her before it becomes a serious romance that could complicate your educational plans and future.

The same rule is for later leads R.K. Milholland, an author of Web comics, said, “Friendship is being there when someone’s feeling low and not being afraid to kick him.” That would work with a lot of people, but would make some feel even worse. We “kick” partner by leading a low card from a long suit to tell him that we have at least one honor in it. And this applies during the play if a defender shifts to a suit not yet led by either side. Here฀is฀a฀classic฀example.฀ West leads the spade four against three no-trump. South captures East’s jack with his king and plays a low diamond. What should happen next? West was right to overcall one spade, not to make a takeout฀double.฀He฀was฀hoping฀to฀ introduce hearts on the next round if it seemed expedient. South has eight top tricks: two฀spades฀and฀six฀clubs.฀He฀ needs one diamond trick to get home. And it is usually best to try to sneak an extra winner immediately, while the defenders are still half asleep. However,฀an฀awake฀West฀ knows from the first trick that South has the spade ace and king. Why isn’t declarer running฀for฀home?฀He฀must฀ be trying to get a ninth trick. So West must win with his diamond ace and shift to the heart three. This low card says that West has honors in hearts and is trying to win tricks in this suit. East should take the trick with his king and return the heart two, not go back to spades. If West had begun with ace-10-fifth of spades and had wanted East to return a spade, West would have led a high heart, not his lowest.
