U.S. sues S&P over mortgage ratings

On stage, a lesson in civil rights County students learn Rosa Parks story at Raue for Black History Month By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com

RYSTAL LAKE – Instead of the annual Black History Month lesson in a classroom, some area elementary school students got to see civil rights played out on the theater stage Tuesday. “Walk On: The Story of Rosa Parks,” presented by Mad River Theater Works, was performed in two shows Tuesday at the Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake. The hourlong performance, open to students and the public, chronicled the life of Rosa Parks from her days as a child in Alabama to the moment she refused to give up her seat on a bus for a white man, kicking off the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Chris Westhoff, managing director of Mad River Theater Works, said the show aimed to paint a true picture of Parks and dispel myths about her life. “I was taught in school that she was tired and she didn’t feel like getting up,” he said. “That’s just not true. The truth is that she was an activist, and her decision to sit where she was sitting on the bus was a decided act of protest.” The performance opened with the first day of the bus boycott in Montgomery. The story then flashed back through Park’s life as a student, NAACP secretary and civil rights activist at the Highlander Center in Tennessee. The play concluded with Parks refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus Dec. 1, 1955. The theatrical history lesson, which incorporated singing and live music, provided students with a more engaging way to learn about civil rights, Westhoff said.

a balanced budget and a Aaa bond rating from Moody’s Investors Service. By contrast, Hill’s speech came the day before Gov. Pat Quinn’s annual State of the State address. State government is bleeding red ink and is fresh off its latest downgrade to the worst credit rating of all 50 states. Hill called on county departments and staff to be thoughtful

Agency accused of propping up risky funds before crisis The ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration on Tuesday accused Standard & Poor’s of refusing to warn investors that the housing market was collapsing in 2006 because it would be bad for business. The civil charges against the credit rating agency were the administration’s most aggressive action to date against those deemed responsible for contributing to the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. They followed years of criticism that the government had failed to do enough. The Justice Department accused S&P of knowingly inflating its ratings of risky mortgage investments that helped trigger the crisis. It’s demanding $5 billion in penalties. According to the lawsuit, S&P gave high marks to the investments because it wanted to earn more business from the banks that issued them. “This alleged conduct is egregious – and it goes to the very heart of the recent financial crisis,” Attorney General Eric Holder said at a news conference. Experts said the lawsuit could serve as a template for

Fran Reichert, playing Rosa Parks, and Raiford Faircloth, playing her grandfather, sing on stage Tuesday during a performance of “Walk On: The Story of Rosa Parks” at the Raue Center for the Arts. “You can gain a lot from anything when you see it in a different context,” he said. “[The play] is driven by good stories, well-phrased expressions and strong, powerful music. All of that caters to the imagination and it brings something that might be sort of sterile and makes it tactile.” Fran Reichert has played the part of Rosa Parks since the show began in 2007 and said the role is both challenging and

rewarding. “[Rosa Parks] was a very measured and dignified person,” Reichert said between shows Tuesday. “She was very aware of herself out in the world and how she presented herself. … I try to be very aware of the dignity of the woman, but also the indignity of what she and the other black people of their time were put through.”

Another rewarding chapter of Love to Read

When I was a child, reading was one of my favorite things to do. Whether it was peering over my mother’s shoulder for a bedtime story or lying on my stomach while racing through yet another “Nancy Drew” installment, reading provided hours upon hours of pleasant diversion. I would take my books with me wherever I went – outside in a tree, on the bus or in a corner of the library. It really didn’t matter where I was as long as I had a book in which to get lost. All those fond memories come flooding back each February when I make my annual pilgrimage to Westwood Elementary School. Monday kicked off Love to Read Week in District 200 schools. Every year since 1991, members of the community have visited Woodstock kindergarten, elementary and middle

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Joan Oliver schools to share their love of reading with students. All those books I read as I was growing up fostered a deep love of language and a curiosity about the world. What a privilege it is to try, even in a small way, to spark that kind of interest in another generation. This year I had the pleasure of reading to students in Ms. Sauber’s, Ms. Wagner’s and Ms. Palek’s classes. I shared one of my favorite stories, “The Crane Maiden” by Miyoko Matsutani. It was published in the year I was born – a long, long time ago, I tell the kids. Of course there also was a dose of

Dr. Seuss. How could I pass up the opportunity to tackle some brilliantly written rhymes? Besides, I adore “The Sneetches” and its message of not judging others by their appearance. As much as I love sharing my favorite books, I’m also curious about what the children like to read. Here’s what a few Westwood students had to say in the handout that we Love to Read Week readers received. “It helps you with your literature and it’s hard to put the book down when you’re reading a really good book,” fifth-grader Cameron wrote. Cameron’s favorite book is “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl. “I love to read because you get to see through a different set of eyes on a situation and you can be the character and be in his/her situation,” fifthgrader Tyler wrote. Tyler’s favorite?

“The Kill Order” by James Dashner. “It’s fun and I like it,” first-grader Allison wrote. Her favorite is “Judy Moody” by Megan McDonald. “It is my favorite thing to do,” firstgrader Kyra wrote. Her favorite book is “Charlie the Ranch Dog” by Ree Drummond. There were almost as many favorite books as there were students. The trick oftentimes is helping children realize that there’s something out there for what interests them. Events such as Love to Read Week aim to do just that. And I’m so happy that they let me be a part of it.

Stewie was surrounded by family when he succumbed to a yearlong battle with cancer Monday evening at his Reno home, owner Robin Hendrickson said Tuesday. He was 8. Guinness World Records declared Stewie the record-holder in August 2010, measuring 48.5 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail. Hundreds of fans flooded Stewie’s Facebook site with memories and condolences Tuesday.

Report: Most Facebook users take a break By BARBARA ORTUTAY The Associated Press NEW YORK – Too much drama, boredom and scads of irrelevant information are just some of the reasons Facebook users give for taking a break from the world’s biggest social networking site for weeks at a time, according to a new study. A report from the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project found that some 61 percent of Facebook users had taken a hiatus of at least several weeks for myriad reasons, whether they were weary of an onslaught of gossip, or for a more pious reason – the arrival of Lent. Yet the use of Facebook, whether constant or not, is

pervasive in America. Of the American adults who use the Internet, 67 percent are on Facebook, Pew found. That compares with 20 percent who use LinkedIn and 16 percent on Twitter. But users do come and go, some temporarily, and some for good. Seven percent of Internet users said they used Facebook at one point but no longer do. By its own count, Facebook Inc. has 1.06 billion users worldwide who check in at least once a month. This includes millions of duplicate and fake accounts. More than 150 million users are in the U.S. The largest slice of users, 20 percent, said they were simply too busy with their own lives to follow the con-

Only 4 percent of people gave these reasons, combined with concerns about ads and spam, as their “Facebook vacation” motivation. Lee Rainie, director of the Internet and American Life Project, said privacy is more of a big policy question that people do not concern themselves with day-by-day. Rather, people are contemplating how they spend their time and allocate their attention. “People are making interesting calibrations and recalibrations” about how they

STATE & NATION

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Business, labor align on immigration Strange bedfellows join effort for political reforms The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Unlikely allies, business and labor leaders joined in support of the White House’s immigration overhaul efforts Tuesday while also launching high-stakes negotiations to overcome an issue that has split them before – creating a guest-worker program to ensure future immigrants come to the U.S. legally. The broad agreement on a need for immigration changes and a pathway to citizenship for an estimated 11 million il-

legal immigrants already here is driven largely by self-interest. Business and labor see an overhaul of the nation’s broken immigration system as a way to boost competitiveness with other nations while increasing the ranks of workers and union members. For President Barack Obama, a partnership between factions that have often been at odds – both with each other and with the White House – allows him to turn up pressure on Congress and try to isolate congressional Republicans who oppose parts

of an immigration overhaul. Obama held separate private meetings at the White House on Tuesday with labor leaders and business executives. “This is all very encouraging to have labor and business come together to explore what could be some common ground,” said Janet Murguia, president of the National Council of La Raza, a leading immigration rights groups. Murguia and other immigration activists joined Obama’s meeting with labor groups. Despite such optimistic public statements, the frag-

ile business-labor alliance is still in question as the Chamber of Commerce meets with the AFL-CIO and other labor groups privately to hammer out details of how to deal with future immigrants who come to the U.S. to work. The labor and business groups have been tasked by Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., with reaching a deal within weeks that can be included in legislation being crafted by a bipartisan Senate group, officials say. The guest worker issue helped scuttle the last attempt at a comprehensive overhaul of immigration law in 2007. If the parties can’t reach a deal, senators and their staffs are

prepared to write temporaryworker language themselves, said a Senate aide, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity because the aide was not authorized to discuss the private negotiations publicly. The Senate negotiating group has included a guestworker program in its immigration proposals, but Obama has not. That omission has drawn criticism from Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a key negotiator on the Republican side. Republicans view the omission as a cave-in to labor supporters, who see a substantial new guest-worker program as a possible threat to Americans seeking jobs.

FBI: Ala. man was in ‘firefight’ with agents

Relatives say boy is recovering well The ASSOCIATED PRESS MIDLAND CITY, Ala. – The Alabama man who held a 5-year-old boy captive for nearly a week engaged in a firefight with SWAT agents storming his underground bunker before he was killed during the rescue operation, the FBI said Tuesday night. Also, bomb technicians scouring his rural property found two explosive devices – one in the bunker and one in a plastic pipe that negotiators used to communicate with the man. Officers killed 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes Monday, said an official in Midland City, speaking on the condition of anonymity. The bunker raid came six days after Dykes boarded a school bus, fatally shot the driver and abducted the boy, who by all accounts was unharmed. Dykes “reinforced the bunker against any attempted entry by law enforcement,” FBI Special Agent Jason Pack said in an email. The devices found were “disrupted,” Pack said, but he did not say whether that meant they were detonated or disarmed. Officers will continue Wednesday to sweep the 100-acre property and, when they finish, investigators can more thoroughly investigate, Pack said. For days, officers passed food, medicine, toys and other items into the bunker,

FBI photo

This undated photo released by the FBI on Tuesday shows the pipe that FBI agents and Dale County negotiators used to communicate with Jimmy Lee Dykes while he held a 5-year-old boy hostage in a bunker on his Midland City, Ala., property for a week. The pipe also was used to send food, medicine, and other items into the bunker. which was similar to a tornado shelter and apparently had running water, heat and cable TV. On Monday, authorities said, Dykes had a gun and appeared increasingly agitated, although it’s unclear exactly how his behavior changed. Negotiations – the details of which have not been made public – were deteriorating. The Midland City official said law enforcement agents had been viewing Dykes with some sort of camera, which is how they saw that he had a gun.

Pack declined to get into specifics, but confirmed that high-tech surveillance equipment was used during the police standoff. Agents stormed the bunker, whisking the boy to safety and leaving Dykes dead. The official who confirmed that officers had killed Dykes and the use of the camera cited discussions with law enforcement and requested anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation. Neighbors said they heard

what sounded like explosions and gunshots, although the FBI and local authorities didn’t say how many shots were fired and by whom. No officers or agents were injured, Pack said. The 5-year-old boy also appeared to be doing well at a hospital in nearby Dothan, acting like a normal child. He was running around, playing with a toy dinosaur and other action figures, eating a turkey sandwich and watching “SpongeBob SquarePants,” relatives and Dale County Sheriff Wally

CHICAGO – Members of a state employee union are calling on Gov. Pat Quinn for fair collective bargaining and employment practices.

4 plead not guilty in Joliet double homicide JOLIET – Four people accused of strangling two Joliet men have all pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges. Investigators said officers arrived to find three of the suspects playing video games at the Joliet home where the bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence

Rankins were found. Authorities have said the 22-year-old men were robbed and killed during a Jan. 10 party. On Tuesday, 19-year-old Adam Landerman, 18-year-old Alisa Massaro, 18-year-old Bethany McKee and 24-year-old Joshua Miner appeared before a Will County judge to enter their pleas.

Gun background checks drop 10 percent in Jan. WASHINGTON – The number of federal background checks for firearms sales declined in the U.S. last month, as retailers continue to run out of guns to sell during a buying spree driven by Washington’s new focus on gun control. Background checks decreased 10 percent nationally between December and January, with large declines in the Southern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia as well as Texas, according to an Associated Press analysis of new FBI data published Tuesday.

A: There are limited circumstances where a taxpayer can avoid joint and several liability for tax resulting from a jointly filed tax return. The Internal Revenue Code refers to such protection as “Innocent spouse relief.”

FEDERAL INCOME TAX RETURNS ARE DUE TO BE FILED MONDAY, APRIL 15, 2013. Q: Are there any risks to filing a joint tax return with my spouse during a divorce? A: Yes. There is risk anytime you file a joint tax return. When you file a joint tax return with a spouse, you are agreeing the IRS can hold you and the other joint filer jointly and severally liable for the tax due, or any tax that may become due if there are mistakes or misrepresentations on the tax return.

Insurance Companies HA฀E ฀HIS BOOK!

Q: What does joint and several liability mean? A: If you and your spouse are jointly and severally liable for a debt, it means the lender can seek the entire payment from either debtor. For instance, if there was a tax liability of $10,000, the IRS could attempt to collect the entire $10,000 from either or both debtors, but could only collect the total amount once. The IRS will not make a determination of fault or allocate the debt between the two taxpayers.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPRINGFIELD – A strict party-line vote Tuesday sent proposed gay-marriage legislation to the Democrat-controlled Illinois Senate floor for the second time in a month. The Executive Committee voted 9-5 in favor of the plan despite Republicans’ concerns that it will force religious organizations to open parish halls and fellowship centers – if not sanctuaries – to gays seeking marriage ceremonies. Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, predicts the body’s 40-Democrat majority will find the 30 votes necessary to make Illinois the 10th state to give marital rights to same-sex couples. He wants a floor vote next week. “Same-sex couples want to marry for the same reason we all do: For the common respect, commitment to families, the obligation and the benefits that come with marriage,” sponsoring Sen. Heather Steans said. Steans, also a Democrat from Chicago, shepherded a similar bill to the floor in the final days of the last General Assembly but scuttled a floor vote when she couldn’t count on enough votes. She said a change in the language makes it clear that churches and other houses of worship will not be obligated to solemnize gay unions. But Republicans remain concerned that religious organizations will be sued over shutting their doors to same-sex celebrations. Sen. Dale Righter, through his questioning of the legislation’s supporters, was able to establish that those institutions’ obligations are covered by the state’s human rights law. The gay-marriage measure doesn’t address the responsibilities of any place deemed a “public accommodation,” and Righter, R-Mattoon, said the matter won’t be settled until time-consuming lawsuits are settled.

“Innocent Spouse” Income Tax Relief

8BRIEFS Union members call out Illinois governor at rally

Olson said. “We know he’s OK physically, but we don’t know how he is mentally,” Betty Jean Ransbottom, the boy’s grandmother, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. She added that she feared the ordeal would stay with the child, who turns 6 on Wednesday, for the rest of his life. An FBI agent had been staying with the family, and relatives learned of the child’s rescue after another agent at the scene called the person who was with them. The family was relieved and grateful for all the support in a community where ribbons, fliers and vigils all symbolized the prayers for the safe return of the boy, whom law enforcement officials have only identified by his first name, Ethan. The boy’s mother, in a statement released by authorities, expressed her thanks for all the hard work of so many officers to bring her son home. The woman declined to be identified, the statement said. “For the first time in almost a week, I woke up this morning to the most beautiful sight ... my sweet boy,” she said. “I can’t describe how incredible it is to hold him again.” Dale County Coroner Woodrow Hilboldt said Tuesday that he had not been able to confirm exactly how Dykes died because the man’s body remained in the bunker. An autopsy was to be conducted in Montgomery once the body is taken away.

Marriage issue up again in Senate

Q: What is Innocent spouse relief? A: Innocent spouse relief allows one spouse, the “innocent” spouse, to ask the IRS to hold only the other spouse liable for tax resulting from a jointly filed return. There are several types of innocent spouse relief that apply in different situations. Q: What is the main type of innocent spouse relief? A: Most people seek “classic” innocent spouse relief. Innocent spouse relief, or what is sometimes referred to as “classic” innocent spouse relief, allows the requesting spouse to avoid liability for an understatement of tax if all the requirements are met. In order to obtain this relief, the taxpayer seeking the relief has to show (1) a joint return was filed, (2) there is an error on the tax return attributable to one individual signing the tax return, (3) the taxpayer seeking the relief did not, and had no reason to, know there was an understatement of tax, (4) given all the facts and circumstances, it would be inequitable to hold the spouse liable for the tax, and (5) the request for relief is made within two years of the time the IRS began making efforts to collect the tax. In particular, classic relief is only available for understatements of tax, i.e. an erroneous or fraudulent misrepresentation that makes it look like no tax is due and not when tax is shown due, but not paid. Q: How does the IRS determine whether holding me liable is equitable or not? A: The statute directs the IRS to consider all the facts and circumstances. Under regulations issued

by the IRS, the IRS will consider (1) whether you are now divorced or separated, (2) whether you would suffer hardship if required to pay the tax, (3) whether you were abused, though the abuse did not amount to signing the tax return under duress, (4) whether you knew or should have known about the understatement or underpayment, (5) has the liability been apportioned in a divorce or legal separation proceeding, (6) to whom the liability is attributable, i.e. is there a deficiency because of your income or your spouse’s income, (7) whether you benefitted from the error or underpayment, and (8) whether you have made efforts to comply with tax laws in subsequent years. Q: Will my spouse find out I’m seeking innocent spouse relief? A: Yes. The IRS is required to notify your spouse if you seek innocent spouse relief. Your spouse will also be given an opportunity to provide information, documents, or other evidence for the IRS to consider. Q: What if the IRS denies my application for innocent spouse relief? A: You may appeal the IRS’s determination. In order to appeal, you must file your appeal with the US Tax Court within 90 days of a final determination letter from the IRS following the administrative appeal within the IRS. Q: Shouldn’t I be entitled to innocent spouse relief if my spouse forged my signature on the tax return? A: While you should be entitled to relief, it would not be innocent spouse relief. Other provisions of the Internal Revenue Code address returns signed under duress or where the signature on the return is fraudulent.

Obama urges stopgap deficit-trimming deal Asks Congress for less spending, higher taxes to avoid deep cuts The ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – Eager to buy time and avoid economic pain, President Barack Obama urged Congress on Tuesday to pass targeted short-term spending cuts and higher taxes as a way to put off sweeping, automatic cuts that would slice deeply into military and domestic programs starting March 1. Obama’s appeal came as Congress’ budget office projected a yearly federal deficit under $1 trillion for the first time in his presidency and as Republicans applied political pressure on the president to submit balanced budgets, pushing fiscal issues back to the forefront in Washington. A short-term deficit-trimming measure would once

again delay the broad and onerous spending cuts that are unpopular with both political parties, underscoring the government’s difficulty adopting long-term budget policies. Obama conceded the problem, even though he has previously scoffed at temporary budget reprieves. “Let’s keep on chipping away at this problem together, as Democrats and Republicans, to give our workers and our businesses the support that they need to thrive in the weeks and months ahead,” Obama said in a short statement in the White House briefing room. Illustrating the challenge for the government, the Congressional Budget Office said the government will run a $845 billion deficit this year. That’s

Congress considers drone strike limits Justice memo outlines potential use of weapons By LARA JAKES The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Uncomfortable with the Obama administration’s use of deadly drones, a growing number in Congress is looking to limit America’s authority to kill suspected terrorists, even U.S. citizens. The Democratic-led outcry was emboldened by the revelation in a newly surfaced Justice Department memo that shows drones can strike against a wider range of threats, with less evidence, than previously believed. The drone program, which has been used from Pakistan across the Middle East and into North Africa to find and kill an unknown number of suspected terrorists, is expected to be a top topic of debate when the Senate Intelligence Committee grills John Brennan, the White House’s pick for CIA chief, at a hearing Thursday. The White House on Tuesday defended its lethal drone program by citing the very laws that some in Congress once believed were appropriate in the years immediately after the Sept. 11 attacks but

now think may be too broad. “It has to be in the agenda of this Congress to reconsider the scope of action of drones and use of deadly force by the United States around the world because the original authorization of use of force, I think, is being strained to its limits,” Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said in a recent interview. Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, said Tuesday that “it deserves a serious look at how we make the decisions in government to take out, kill, eliminate, whatever word you want to use, not just American citizens but other citizens as well.” Hoyer added: “We ought to carefully review our policies as a country.” The Senate Foreign Relations Committee likely will hold hearings on U.S. drone policy, an aide said Tuesday, and Chairman Robert Menendez, D-N.J., and the panel’s top Republican, Sen. Bob Corker, both have quietly expressed concerns about the deadly operations. And earlier this week, a group of 11 Democratic and Republican senators urged President Barack Obama to release a classified Justice Department legal opinion justifying when U.S. counterterror missions, including drone strikes, can be used to kill American citizens abroad.

8NATION BRIEFS Superdome power an issue before big game NEW ORLEANS – Concerned the Superdome might not be able to handle the energy needed for its first Super Bowl since Hurricane Katrina, officials spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on upgrades to decayed utility lines, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The improvements weren’t enough, however, to prevent a 34-minute power outage during the third quarter of the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Two days later, officials still had not pinpointed the cause of the outage. The Superdome’s management company, SMG, and the utility that supplies the stadium, Entergy New Orleans, announced Tuesday that they would hire outside experts to investigate.

Feds: 18 charged in $200M credit card fraud NEWARK, N.J. – Eighteen people were charged in what may be one of the nation’s largest credit card fraud rings, an international scam that duped credit rating agencies and used thousands of fake identities to steal at least $200 million, federal authorities said Tuesday.

The elaborate scheme involved improving fake cardholders’ credit scores, allowing the scammers to borrow more money that they never repaid, investigators said. Participants in the scam set up more than 1,800 mailing addresses, creating fake utility bills and other documents to provide credit card companies with what appeared to be legitimate addresses, investigators said.

Commuters’ wasted time in traffic costs $121B AUSTIN, Texas – The nation’s commuters are adapting to increasing traffic congestion by building delays into their schedules, but at a cost of $121 billion in wasted time and fuel, according to an annual study of national driving patterns released Tuesday. The report from the Texas A&M Transportation Institute found that Americans wasted an average of $818 each sitting in traffic in 2011. The worst commute? Washington, D.C. Commuters in the nation’s capital needed almost three hours for a trip that should take 30 minutes without traffic, the report said. In the least congested city – Pensacola, Fla. – commuters needed only nine extra minutes.

down from last year’s $1.1 trillion but still high enough to require the government to borrow 24 cents of every dollar it spends. The report predicted the deficit would decline to $430 billion by 2015, the lowest since President George W. Bush’s last year in office. However, as more baby boomers retire and claim Medicare and Social Security, deficits would move higher and again reach near $1 trillion in the latter portion of the 10-year window. “We have a large budget imbalance. We have large projected deficits, debt that will remain at a historically high share of GDP and will be rising at the end of the coming decade,” said CBO director Douglas Elmendorf. “What that implies is that small changes in budget policy will not be sufficient to put the budget on a sustainable path.” The slight reduction in the

At a glance The automatic spending cuts, known as a “sequester” in budget language, were supposed to kick in Jan. 1, but President Barack Obama and Congress identified $24 billion in deficit reduction during a New Year’s agreement, thus averting the cuts until March 1.

Deficits by the numbers $845 billion: projected U.S. budget deficit this year $1.1 trillion: U.S. budget deficit last year $430 billion: projected U.S. budget deficit by 2015 Source: Congressional Budget Office projected deficit for this year is due to anticipated higher revenue caused by a higher tax rate on top earners negotiated over the New Year’s holiday, the end of a temporary payroll tax cut, a slowly improving economy and a slower rate of growth for health care costs. Meanwhile Tuesday, on the House floor, Republicans took up legislation to require

Obama to submit a budget that would balance within a decade or specify when it would come to balance. The move was more of an attempt at political messaging than legislation likely to become law. Obama was to have delivered his budget to Congress on Monday, but it’s not expected until next month.

The automatic cuts Obama is seeking to avoid are part of a 10-year, $1 trillion deficit reduction plan that was supposed to spur Congress and the administration to act on long-term fiscal policies to stabilize the nation’s debt. Though Congress and the White House have agreed on about $2.5 trillion in cuts and higher taxes since the beginning of 2011, they have been unable to close the deal on their ultimate goal of reducing deficits by about $4 trillion over a decade. Obama did not specify a time span or a dollar amount for a stopgap measure, and neither he nor White House aides provided any detailed spending cuts or tax increases that could be used to postpone the deeper, automatic cuts. In order to put off cuts until the end of the fiscal year, Sept. 30, Congress would have to find $85 billion in deficit reduction.

Netanyahu struggles to form new coalition The ASSociATED PRESS

JERUSALEM – As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepares to take office for a third time, his attempts to form a new coalition government have gotten off to a rocky start. Netanyahu is vowing to form a broad-based government to tackle the country’s challenges in the coming years, but that won’t be easy. Given the dizzying array of potential coalition partners and their deep differences on key issues, Netanyahu will be hard pressed to build a stable government, much less make significant progress on such divisive matters as drafting ultra-Orthodox Jewish seminary students into the military and pursuing peace with the Palestinians. “There are very serious disputes that will be very hard to resolve,” Reuven Rivlin, a senior member of Netanyahu’s Likud Party, told Israel Radio on Tuesday. Netanyahu got the nod to

form a new government Saturday night, following a Jan. 22 election. He has six weeks to put a team together. The gloves typically come off early in the negotiations but eventually end up with a coalition. The sniping already has begun. Newcomer Yair Lapid, whose party came out of nowhere to become the second largest in the parliament, is thought to be an important partner for Netanyahu. But Lapid was quoted this week by Israeli media as saying that he is ready to become the parliamentary opposition leader and could force new elections that would make him the prime minister within 18 months. Netanyahu’s allies have seized on the reported comments to depict Lapid as arrogant and intransigent. Netanyahu’s Likud-Yisrael Beitenu bloc won the most seats in last month’s parliamentary election. But with just 31 seats, Netanyahu needs to bring in multiple coalition partners to secure a majority of at least 61.

Randall Road traffic plan among priorities • ADDRESS

Continued from page A1 again this year about balancing the county’s financial strength with the expectations of taxpayers. The County Board decided not to take the 3 percent increase allowed under the tax cap for inflation on this year’s property-tax bills. She also said she would like to repeat the budget task force created last year at the behest of former board member Scott Breeden to make sure the budget is done on time and addresses all concerns earlier rather than later. Breeden pushed for the task force out of frustration over a lastminute attempt the night of the 2012 budget vote to reject collecting the levy increase, which would have forced an overhaul of the county’s $250 million-plus budget. With more than one-third of the County Board made up of new members after the November redistricting election, Hill said, repeating the education process is just as important. Hill prioritized the review and the approval this year of the unified development ordinance, which updates, streamlines and combines all of the county’s development-related ordinances into one. The new Planning and Development Committee, which Hill chaired before her election to chairwoman, is set Thursday to receive a presentation by staff on the work done to date. “Let’s complete the UDO in 2013, while thoughtfully balancing the protection of natural resources and open space and also remaining open to new business – busi-

nesses that reduce pressures on residential property taxes and provide much-needed jobs right here in McHenry County,” Hill said. Hill also set this year as a deadline for a plan to address traffic congestion on the Randall Road commercial corridor, especially at Randall and Algonquin roads. With Rakow Road widened and work on the long-delayed Algonquin Western Bypass started, Hill identified Randall Road as the county’s largest transportation bottleneck. She conceded that needed improvements might be too large and expensive to finish in one project, but said the county cannot be intimidated because “Randall Road is critical to the economy of the county.” As a final priority, Hill said she wants the County Board to strengthen its communications with the people – all 288 of them – it appoints to boards and commissions. Board members have raised questions over the past year about how accountable groups and appointees are to county government. Hill said she will ask the Management Services Committee to include “clear direction to this initiative” in the County Board rules that are now under post-election review and revision. One of Hill’s first acts as chairwoman was to ask the State’s Attorney’s Office for guidance on what powers the County Board has to remove appointees. Hill said she did so because of questions raised over the accountability of the McHenry County Mental Health Board, but asked for an opinion on all applicable laws for all boards and commissions.

Iranian leader makes visit to Egypt By MAGGiE MicHAEL The Associated Press CAIRO – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to Cairo on Tuesday, the first by an Iranian leader in more than three decades, highlights efforts by Egypt’s Islamist leader to thaw long frigid ties between the two regional heavyweights. Although the official welcome was warm, there was unscripted discord from Sunni protesters angry over Iran’s support for the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, as well as decades of sectarian animosity between Shiite-led Iran and the region’s Sunni majority. At one point, Ahmadinejad was forced to flee an ancient mosque in downtown Cairo after a Syrian protester took off his shoes and threw them at him. Later, anti-Iranian protesters raised their shoes up while blocking the main gates to Al-Azhar, the Sunni world’s most prestigious religious institution, where Egypt’s most prominent cleric chided Ahmadinejad for interfering in the affairs of Sunni nations. The protests illustrate the limits to how far and how quickly Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi can go in reaching out to Iran: His Sunni allies at home view

The three-day visit, centered on an Islamic summit, was an attempt by Morsi to strike an independent foreign policy and reassert Egypt’s historic regional leadership role following the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, a close U.S. ally who shared Washington’s deep suspicions of Tehran. Such a visit by an Iranian

leader would have been unthinkable under Mubarak. Morsi gave Ahmadinejad a red-carpet welcome on the tarmac at Cairo airport. The two leaders then sat down for a 20-minute talk that focused on the civil war in Syria, security officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media. Iran is Damascus’ closest regional ally, while Egypt has called on Assad to step down. Still, the chasm inherited

from 34 years of bitter relations and the rift between overwhelmingly Sunni Egypt and Iran’s Shiite leadership were on display. Sunni-Shiite tensions dominated talks between Ahmadinejad and Egypt’s most prominent cleric, Sheik Ahmed el-Tayeb, who upbraided the Iranian leader on a string of issues and warned against Iranian interference in Gulf nations, particularly Bahrain, where the ruling Sunnis have faced protests by the Shiite majority.

Suit: S&P ignored borrower troubles • RATINGS

Continued from page A1 future action against Fitch and Moody’s, the other two major credit rating agencies. High ratings from the three agencies made it possible for banks to sell trillions in risky investments. Some investors, including pension funds, can buy only securities that carry high credit ratings. S&P, a unit of New Yorkbased McGraw-Hill Cos., called the lawsuit “meritless.” “Hindsight is no basis to take legal action against the good-faith opinions of professionals,” the company said in a statement. “Claims that we deliberately kept ratings high when we knew they should be lower are simply not true.” According to the lawsuit, S&P recognized that home

prices were sinking and that borrowers were having trouble repaying loans. Yet these facts weren’t reflected in the ratings S&P gave to complex real-estate investments known as mortgage-backed securities and collateralized debt obligations, the suit alleges. At least one S&P executive who had raised concerns about the company’s proposed methods for rating investments was ignored. S&P executives expressed concern that lowering the ratings on some investments would anger the clients selling these investments and drive new business to S&P’s rivals, the government claims. Holder called the case “an important step forward in our ongoing efforts to investigate and punish the conduct that is believed to have contributed to the worst economic crisis in

recent history.” The $5 billion in penalties the government is demanding would amount to several times the annual revenue of McGraw-Hill’s Standard & Poor’s Ratings division. The ratings business generated $1.77 billion in revenue in 2011. McGraw-Hill’s total revenue was $6.25 billion. The fraudulent ratings contributed to the failure of a California credit union that required a multibillion-dollar government bailout, the lawsuit said. It said Western Federal Corporate Credit Union bought the investments because of S&P’s endorsement. Critics complained that the government’s action Tuesday involves civil rather than criminal charges. Criminal charges, which would carry the possibility of jail time, would be harder to prove.

I believe we are headed toward a repeat of history, where our guns will be taken away by our government, plus they will tell you how to live. They will let immigrants come in and take over your jobs, and if they have a green card, they automatically will get drivers’ licenses and car insurance. Read your history. The real native Americans were chased off their lands, put on reservations, and got nothing from what the government promised. Today, many still are on reservations. The way of change will put us in the same place. Our governor says he will veto every bill that comes to his desk on guns. God forbid if he carries a gun. Why don’t our elected officials take some of their millions and feed those on the streets here? Quit taking care of other countries and start caring for our own. If we did that, America would be better. Be stronger and people would have respect for each other. Some may not like this, but truth needs to be told. Ron Landon Harvard

the factory made everyone’s life better, and the things exported made us richer. China will in 2013 produce more than all of Europe, including Russia and Turkey. Everyone can produce anything as good as we can. Now we want to raise taxes. France raised taxes about two months ago. The rich, successful people are leaving France in droves. Worse than the rich leaving in droves are the young Henry Fords, Thomas Edisons and Bill Gateses, who will employ people in the future, are leaving. We need to ask/demand our elected officials to create an environment to help create jobs and prosperity. We don’t want to go the route of Greece – borrow money, pay high social program costs, and have no way of paying it back. The final chapter has to be written yet. I hope it’s not like Germany in the 1930s and ’40s.

Improved roads

No one solution

To the Editor: I will vote for Don Kopsell for Nunda Township road commissioner. “Honesty,” “reliability” and “fairness” are just three words of the many I could write that explain my knowledge of his management of Nunda roads. His crew of workers is constantly improving and assisting those of us in this community. Kopsell has worked for years in bringing our roads up to county standards. Without his constant management, our roads would have no culverts to divert runoff waters, no 60-foot-wide roads, no broad shoulders, dangerously close trees on the road edges. He made our roads safe to travel. My nephew, Chris Ruhnke, worked for several years on his crew until he died from a motocross accident. He said many times that Kopsell allows no easing back on his workers. He spoke constantly of how hard they all worked and how fair Kopsell was. I trust that Kopsell manages our tax money allotted to him well. Bonnie Salvesen

How to sound off

Crystal Lake

Lower my taxes To the Editor: As a taxpayer in Algonquin Township for more than 30 years, I am very disappointed in Supervisor Dianne Klemm’s decision to raise my taxes yet again. During her six years as township supervisor, she has raised my taxes every single year. Doesn’t she get it?

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

To the Editor: Even as a believer of the Second Amendment, I have thought about this problem of firearm violence and recognize that there isn’t any one solution or answer that will solve the dilemma of tragedies such as Sandy Hook, Columbine or other homicides. It’s a combination of access, mental health, fraud and deception, no uniform laws or code regarding purchases of guns or ammunition, lack of enforcement of laws already on the books, and lack of a nationwide uniform background check of gun and ammunition purchasers that hamper our ability to keep firearms out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them! Of course, we hear a great deal from the pro-gun lobbyists who site the Second Amendment and generate fear predicated on a potential government tyranny. But they don’t want to tell you that our republic has stood the test of time for more than 200 years without smashing in our doors and taking away our guns. We have endured in spite of ourselves. Yes, the FBI and the ATF have acted, but only when public safety was threatened! Our situation is one that begs the question of what is best for the American people and what steps do we take for their benefit? Sure, there will be some who may not like or even strongly oppose uniform background checks or closing the loopholes in gun show purchases or Internet transactions. But somewhere, we have to be as

adamant about who buys or owns a firearm as we are about who drives a car or truck. Donald Brown Crystal Lake

Why inconsistencies

To the Editor: About the Sandy Hook shootings, once the crime scene was secured the police, which included local, state and federal, should have known without a doubt by the shell casings what type of gun/ guns were used and what caliber they were. Yet their stories differ greatly. The alleged guns, a .223-caliber rifle whose casings are 1.75 inches long that are tapered at the top (bottleneck), and two 9mm handguns whose casings are .751 inches long with no taper at the top. The rifle casing is more than twice as long, and with the bottleneck at the top would be very easy to identify, even to an average person, let alone a professional. Some media reported that local and federal police said four handguns were found in the school and the rifle was found in the suspect’s car. They also had live footage of the police, with the trunk of the suspect’s car open holding a shotgun and emptying shells from it. Yet there was no mention of a shotgun. The inconsistencies are so great in this tragic event, and I want to know why. There should not have been. What I have described, the sizes of the casings for comparison to the public, is more than any news media have done. Again, why? James M. Korjenek Wonder Lake

Good luck To the Editor: We have to go into more debt to take care of Social Security, federal workers and Congress, plus Medicare. The state of Illinois is in bad shape also. It spent all the retirement funds. The state is in more trouble than the feds. But the feds can print more money; the state can’t. Good luck. Wesley Sterne Crystal Lake

CHILD SEX SUSPECT POSTS $15K BAIL

MARENGO – A former Marengo man charged with sexually assaulting a young girl over the course of six years posted $15,000 bail and was released from jail Tuesday morning. Brian T. Erboe, 43, of 821 St. John St., Elgin, was arrested Monday and charged with one count each of predatory criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The more serious offense is a Class X felony, typically punishable by between six and 30 years in prison. Lt. James Popovits of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said the abuse occurred from November 2006 to December 2012 in an unincorporated area of the county near Marengo where Erboe used to live. The alleged victim is under 13 years old and disclosed the abuse to a family member, who then reported it to police, Popovits said. There are no other known victims, he said, but, “The investigation is still active.”

Bar’s live entertainment OK’d By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com CARY – Live indoor entertainment will continue at Coleman’s in the Park. The Village Board on Tuesday voted to allow live entertainment and voted, 4-1, to remove a provision in the bar’s conditional-use permit

that would have required it to stop live entertainment Thursday. The conditionaluse permit was approved last year. “During the last year, we have on several occasions used this privilege and to my knowledge, and [Village Administrator] Chris Clark has confirmed, we have had

no complaints on our indoor music,” bar owner Brett Coleman wrote in a letter to the board. Live indoor entertainment can take place from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. Coleman said after the

meeting that he has karaoke inside the bar at 645 Industrial Drive, and occasionally a live band. “The Village Board has been good to us,” Coleman said. “We continue to work with them, and they’re working with us.” Trustee Rick Dudek voted against removing the provi-

MAN ROBS BANK IN FOX LAKE

FOX LAKE – Police are looking for a man who robbed a Fox Lake bank Tuesday afternoon. The man with a surgical mask covering his face walked into the PNC Bank branch, 66 E. Grand Ave., about 2:40 p.m., handed a teller a note and fled with an undisclosed amount of money, FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said. Witnesses described the man as white, of medium build and about 5 feet, 7 inches tall. Besides the mask, he wore a tan coat, blue jeans, athletic shoes, gloves, a knit hat and scarf, Hyde said. The robber did not threaten anyone or display a weapon, and no one was injured, Hyde said. Fox Lake police and the FBI are investigating the robbery.

Paula Shal, 42, of Johnsburg has a rare disease called cystinosis. She was recently in Washington, D.C., to advocate for continued funding in rare disease research in the face of sequestration. She also is pushing for funding for academic research aimed at discovering new treatments and policies that encourage drug developers to take the risk of developing drugs for diseases that might not pay off financially.

Johnsburg resident pushes for rare disease research By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com

OHNSBURG – Every day Paula Shal takes 52 pills. She takes four pills every six hours for cystinosis, the rare disease she was diagnosed with 25 years ago, and she takes three anti-rejection medications for her fourth kidney transplant. She has pills for the side effects and vitamins to supplement the nutrition that goes straight through her system. Cystinosis is a genetic disease – the abnormal accumulation of the amino acid cystine in various organs of the body, according to the Cystinosis Foundation based in Mo raga, Calif. In Shal’s case, it’s responsible for severe muscle-wasting. “We wanted to put a face with the issue,” she said. Shal, her husband, Jim, and nine other families affected by cystinosis went to Washington, D.C., last week to tell their stories to policymakers’ staff to stave off cuts ahead of budget talks and the automatic cuts set to occur in a month. The cuts, called sequestration, were pushed back 60 days as part of the “fiscal cliff deal,” but unless a new deal is reached by March 1, acrossthe-board cuts are supposed to take place. Besides getting through any cuts unscathed, rare disease advocates

Shal has had four kidney transplants since she was diagnosed in the 1980s at the age of 17. such as Shal hope to build on policies such as the Orphan Drug Act, which encourages research aimed at discovering treatment for rare diseases. About 500 people have cystinosis in the United States. That makes it one of almost 7,000 diseases that meet the criteria in the Orphan Drug Act. Shal and the people who traveled to Washington with her would like to see additional funding for academic research and financial incentives to encourage private drug developers

to take on the often expensive and lengthy drug development process. They’d also like policies to help families afford the drugs once they’re developed. Shal’s medication would cost $28,000 a year if she didn’t have insurance. She’s lucky, she said, that her insurance through her job in the training department of American Girl

SPRING GROVE – Jobs are needed to get the housing market in Spring Grove moving again, one developer told the Spring Grove Village Board. “You can’t buy a house if you don’t have a job,” developer Mark Buschman said. “You can’t get a loan if you don’t have a job. You can’t get a loan if you do have a job.” Buschman is the chief operating officer of Buschman Homes, which developed two subdivisions in Spring Grove – HeartLand Crossing and StoneCreek Crossing. There are 323 vacant lots in Spring Grove. All of HeartLand Crossing’s 35 lots are empty. For the most part, those numbers haven’t changed since the housing market crashed in 2008. That year, the village issued 11 building permits for new homes. The next year it issued none. It issued five permits in 2010, four in 2011 and three last year. Those numbers have Village President Mark Eisenberg and village trustees asking whether there’s anything the village can do to bring back development. Two developers attended the meeting, and Eisenberg spoke to a third, Kim Meier of KLM Builders, on the phone before the meeting. Builders seeing some movement are closer to job centers, Buschman said. Ron Weidner, who primarily is a commercial developer, pointed to the state’s pension troubles and concerns that those could be passed along to residents through property taxes. “There’s a lot of unknowns,” he said. In terms of what the village can do, Buschman said the village’s special service areas are a “real hard thing to market

Spring Grove seeks rebound

A Marengo man was killed in a collision with a tractortrailer Monday in Caledonia, the Boone County Coroner’s Office reported. Robert D. Butzow, 75, suffered chest injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene at Route 173 and Caledonia Road. Butzow was traveling south on Caledonia about 12:30 p.m., entered the intersection at Route 173 and was struck by the eastbound semi. The driver of the semi was treated at the scene for minor injuries and released. Butzow owned and operated Shearer Pharmacy in Marengo for 29 years. He had served on Marengo’s Zoning Board of Appeals and at the McHenry County Mental Health Center. He also was a charter member for the Marengo-Union Rotary Club and the Marengo-Union Chamber of Commerce. The Boone County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the accident.

sion from the bar’s specialuse permit. He said he would have supported a one-year permit extension. “I didn’t want to take it out all together,” Dudek said. “The fact that residents in the neighborhood complain about activities and noise, I can’t turn a blind eye to that. I prefer to have them continue to be monitored for another year and see how it goes.”

Cary lifts one-year provision in conditional-use permit

sshinneman@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A new dog park, utility improvements in the widening of Route 14 and a load of routine maintenance and debt payments highlight the city’s latest five-year capital improvement plan. The annual plan prioritizes projects from “urgent” to “deferrable” and serves as a loose guide to assemble the budget. The 259-page document the City Council discussed Tues-

day night reflects the economic times. Several sections include disclaimers that expenditures in the 2013-14 budget can’t feasibly extend beyond debt payments or maintenance and repair. “We appreciate everyone’s understanding of the economic times and the limited financial resources that we’ll be dealing with at budget time,” Councilman Richard Ahrens said. He filled in for an absent Mayor Brian Sager. The capital improvement

plan provides a peek at projects on the city’s radar, both longand short-term. A $100,000 project during the next two years – categorized as “urgent” – calls for the city to relocate or replace utilities along Route 14 between Lake Shore Drive and Route 176. The work would need to be completed in the first half of this year because the Illinois Department of Transportation informed the city that contractors could break ground this summer on widening the road

to five lanes, officials said. Public facilities improvements during the next five years focus on maintenance at City Hall and the Opera House. Parks improvements similarly focus on maintenance rather than new facilities or substantial projects. The city must focus on maintenance of existing facilities “until such time as the housing growth returns to previous levels to generate sufficient

CRYSTAL LAKE: CITY COUNCIL MEETING

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

McHENRY COUNTY: CONSERVATION DISTRICT

Lodging taxes awarded Winter discovery programs How they were funded

By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com

CRYSTAL LAKE – The City Council on Tuesday approved requests from 10 organizations that asked for funding from the city’s hotel/ motel tax program. The city’s imposes a 5 percent tax on hotel and motel stays and awards the money to organizations that generate overnight visits in the city. Council members agreed to fund the agencies at the same level as last year, and in a new move, agreed to that funding for two years if funds are available. Allocations this year totaled $292,200. The city estimated it had generated $290,000 in hotelmotel taxes this year. The difference will be covered by reserves in the lodging tax fund.

• Berkshire Ballet Theatre: $1,900 • Crystal Lake Babe Ruth Baseball League: $2,000 • Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce: $5,000 • Crystal Lake Rowing Club: $2,500 • Downtown Crystal Lake: $35,000

• Lakeside Legacy Arts: $35,400 • McHenry County Visitors and Convention Bureau: $4,000 • McHenry County Music Center: $3,600 • McHenry County Youth Sports Association: $52,800 • Raue Center for the Arts: $150,000

“We have sufficient reserves to cover a very incremental overage,” Mayor Aaron Shepley said. There was some discussion about whether to double the amount awarded to the McHenry County Convention and Visitors Bureau, but the council opted not to – for now. The council later could revisit the issue and give the tourism agency an additional $4,000 from reserves. Crystal Lake awarded the bureau $4,000.

It said it receives $120,000 from the county, $12,000 from McHenry, $10,000 from Woodstock and $2,000 from Richmond, plus smaller amounts from other municipalities. Councilman Ralph Dawson rejected the idea of an increase for the bureau, saying it wouldn’t be fair to other organizations that asked for increased funding. Request this year totaled $339,100. The Raue Center for the Arts received the largest award – $150,000.

ISLAND LAKE: VILLAGE PRESIDENT

McHENRY: TEMPORARY-USE PERMITS

Candidate to appeal to court City Council OKs consignment By JANE HUH jhuh@shawmedia.com

ISLAND LAKE – Whether the name of a village president candidate makes the April ballot is headed for Lake County Circuit Court after the village electoral board voted, 2-1, Monday to disqualify candidate Charles Amrich. Amrich filed to run against President Debbie Herrmann. He served as president from 1985 to 2005. Amrich’s attorney, David McArdle, said Tuesday afternoon that an appeal of the electoral board decision will go before a Lake County Circuit Court judge. “We’ll see where it goes from there,” he said. McArdle said he will ask for an injunction barring the Lake and McHenry county clerks from printing ballots until a de-

cision is rendered. Electoral board hearings began last month after residents Dan Field and Louis Sharp challenged Amrich’s candidacy. They claimed Amrich was ineligible to run for office because he was “in arrears of water, waste and other debts to the Village of Island Lake at the time he signed his sworn oath in his Statement of Candidacy.” Their objection filing lacked specific debt amounts. During Monday’s hearing, a $174 past due bill for trash service was presented. The bill was paid when Amrich filed his nominating papers in December, but after he signed his statement of candidacy form. That it was paid by the time nominating papers were filed met the requirements to remain qualified, said McArdle,

citing the Illinois Supreme Court’s Cinkus case. Electoral board Chairwoman Shannon Fox and board member Thea Morris voted to deny Amrich’s name on the ballot. Board member Laura Rabattini voted in support of his candidacy. Field and Sharp also filed a similar objection against Anthony Sciarrone, a village trustee candidate, but later dropped that challenge. Both men have ties to the current village administration. Field provides IT computer service for village hall, and Sharp’s towing business works with the police department. Amrich and Sciarrone set out to run on the “For the People” slate. The competing slate, “United for Progress,” includes incumbent President Herrmann.

Chopping Onions Students write a legend that describes why chopping onions makes people cry. Why do onions make people cry? People cry because the onions tell a very sad story, and even the onion cries because the story is so sad. That is why onions will make you sad all day long. So, don’t listen to the onions and their sad stories. Milton, 5th grade Once upon a time there was an onion monster. He squirted onion juice at everyone. Everyone cried. Ryan, 1st grade

Long ago, onions scared people in their sleep and pretended to be something else. People still get scared and cry when they see onions. Jack, 4th grade Once there was a Greek god who had a wonderful garden. He was very proud of his garden. One day he noticed some of the onions were missing. He stayed up late many nights trying to catch the thief. He could not find out who it was. He mixed a special potion and watered the onions in his garden with it. He said that from this day forward, anyone who cuts an onion will cry so that I can see who they are. Ileana, 2nd grade One day a chief cut his finger when he was chopping some onions. So now everyone must cry. Brian, 4th grade

Northwest Herald P.O. Box 250 Crystal Lake, IL 60039

Chopping onions makes people cry because when onions are cut, they let out their smell. Everyone knows that when onions let out their smell, it means they are in pain and so it makes people cry with sadness. Moira, 4th grade Once upon a time, a king was chopping onions. When he chopped the onion, he cried. The queen heard him so she came into the kitchen. She chopped them and she cried. They cried because they thought of something sad. Lana, 1st grade A long time ago, when onions got cut, it wouldn’t make people cry. But the onions gods got mad with the people when they cut the onion, so they grew onions that would make people cry. Now, whenever an onion is cut, it will make somone cry. J.T., 4th grade

Once upon a time, there was a very tragic onion who was always crying because when the little onion was growing on the farm, his parents were picked and were eaten. His little soul grew dark and sad. Soon he was the only onion left on the farm. When he was picked and then chopped, his sad soul lifted right into the farmer’s face. The farmer began to cry. This is the legend of the onion and why it makes people cry when it is chopped. Keegan, 4th grade Let me tell you why people cry when they chop onions. A long time ago, when the gold miners came to California, a witch cast a spell on these plants, and that’s why people cry when they cut onions. Cristobal, 4th grade When you chop an onion, a ghost pops out of the onion and flicks you in the eye. Jack, 1st grade

covers the medicine, some of which has to be ordered through specialty pharmacies. “There’s a ton of focus on cancer because a lot of people have it, but then there should be focus on rare diseases, too, like cystinosis and the 7,000 other rare diseases out there,” Jim Shal said. “When you add up all the rare diseases together, there are millions of people affected,” Paula Shal said. Telling her story to Washington staffers was unusual for the 42-year-old Johnsburg resident. As a former board member

of the Cystinosis Research Network, most of her work has been focused on children. Most people with cystinosis only live into their 20s and 30s. A rare case of a rare disease is that Shal wasn’t diagnosed until after her first kidney transplant at age 17. She is one of the oldest people in the U.S. with cystinosis. “My mission there wasn’t to help find treatments or a cure for myself necessarily,” Shal said. “I’ve already had a lot of complications from it.

have decided not to attend this year’s meeting, primarily because it is painful to listen to the dishonesty by Coleman’s and the board’s lack of interest in the Cimarron residents’ well-being,” the Schoenhofts wrote. According to a police report provided to the Village Board, police responded in November to the bar for a noise complaint. The complainant said there was a large group of people being loud outside of the bar. When police arrived, there was only one person standing outside smoking a cigarette. The officer was unable to detect any kind of noise violation.

Nearby residents Suzi and Chris Schoenhoft wrote an email to Village President Tom Kierna asking the village not to approve Coleman’s entertainment request. “Although you and [a] police sergeant approved the volume of Coleman’s music, we continue to hear it from our yard,” the Schoenhofts wrote. “They have clearly altered the acceptable volume that was agreed upon.” The Schoenhofts contend Coleman’s plays music loudly until closing time. “Most of the neighbors

Honestly, if a cure was found tomorrow, I don’t know how much it would help me.” Shal’s late diagnosis might be why her muscle-wasting is particularly bad. At least that’s her theory. She has 25 percent function in her hands, which makes cooking and other tasks that require fine motor skills difficult. Voice-recognition software on her cellphone has been a real lifesaver. “I don’t want the disease to control me, so I just try to live my life,” she said.

Members also discuss plan for dog park revenues to add substantial new projects,” the report states. Council members also discussed a plan to get a dog park up and running in Woodstock. The low-priority project calls for a park on city property, possibly funded by private contributions and volunteer workers. Since the document was compiled, the city was contacted by Bull Valley. A dog park could happen quicker if the city works out a deal to place it off Country Club Road in Bull Valley in exchange for covering minor utility costs at the park. Such a change in the plan isn’t uncommon because the document evolves as council members see fit up until budget time, said Roscoe Stelford, deputy city manager and finance director.

against,” and he cited the village’s requirements for new homes. Because of the minimum lot size in Spring Grove, property taxes weren’t covering the cost of infrastructure, Eisenberg said. The special service areas were passed to cover the difference. The amount that can be levied under the special service area is capped at $500 per property, he said. School districts could also look at their impact fees, Weidner said. “You could build a house, but a family with four kids isn’t going to come in,” he said. “You’re going to have empty nesters.” The impact fee is currently $2.11 per square foot of living space, according to village documents. The village has its own fees, including the building permit, which costs $1.15 per square foot of living space, and a park impact fee, which runs from $1,211 for a two-bedroom to $3,630 for a five-bedroom. Waiving the fees, though, isn’t going to solve the problem caused by foreclosures, Trustee Pat Mazzanti said. Foreclosed houses are selling for more than $100,000 less than what it would cost the developer to build the house, according to numbers provided from Eisenberg’s conversation with Meier. Fees aren’t going to cover that difference, Mazzanti said. The solution would be to market to a different audience and not compete with the foreclosures, Buschman said. All in all, Weidner said there isn’t much the village can do to help him.

Fitting send-off

Lada’s story starts with speech class at Marian

Inside a Marian Central classroom – surrounded by her classmates and one of her favorite teachers, Kay Hansen – Jen Lada realized she was in her element. There was just something about standing up in front of the speech and composition class delivering speeches and telling compulsory stories that resonated with Lada, a 1998 Marian graduate from McHenry. Blessed with the ability to write and deliver compelling oral accounts, Lada knew that by honing her craft she could turn it into her life’s work. Lada, the confident and well-spoken athlete who led Marian’s cross Jen Lada country and track teams to success during her tenure as a Hurricane, now has the opportunity to tell her stories from a platform most broadcast sports journalists envy. Last week, after several years as a sports anchor and reporter at Fox 6 in Milwaukee, Comcast SportsNet Chicago hired Lada to help anchor and report in the nation’s third-largest TV market. Lada replaces Nicole Darin, who left in November to join Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic in Maryland. “I haven’t really thought about that,” said Lada of emerging as a national talent. “I think if I start thinking about the eyeballs and [the magnitude], it might be detrimental to my success. I just want to go out there and do the same thing I’ve been doing, be a little more polished and continue to improve.” Little has been more fundamentally important professionally to Lada, 32, than excelling at what she does, and she’s taken every opportunity to ensure she is seen as one of the brightest young faces in broadcast sports. In another classroom at Marquette University, Lada heeded the advice of a classmate and started to consider sports journalism. At a time when female sports reporters and anchors still were rare, Lada saw an opportunity to combine her sports acumen and love for athletics with her passion for telling stories. Her male counterparts were pursuing their own sportscasting dreams alongside her, and as soon as Lada dabbled in it she realized why they considered it the perfect medium.

Crystal Lake South’s Kianna Clark (front) fights for the ball with Jacobs’ Victoria Tamburrino during the first quarter Tuesday in Crystal Lake. South won, 54-44.

Gators’ seniors go out with victory By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake South girls basketball team carried a hunger to win onto the court Tuesday. South stepped onto its home floor for the final time during the regular season with the expectation that the six seniors would be sent off with a win. While the Gators fell short of their goal of a conference title, their 54-44 win against Jacobs left them in third place, their best finish in the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division since 2009 when they finished atop the division. “[The seniors] put in so much time and energy over the years,” South coach Kyle McCaughn said. “It’s not just this year, it’s over the four years of basketball. It’s the longest season, the toughest season an athlete’s going to play and for them to stick with it and not see all the playing time that other kids get to see is a testament to who they are.” South led Jacobs by one midway through the second quarter, but a 9-2 run by the Gators in the final two minutes gave them an eight-point halftime lead. South quickly

built its advantage to double digits within the first two minutes of the third. The Golden Eagles (2-21 overall, 2-10 FVC Valley) managed to cut South’s lead to 40-36 at the 7:17 mark of the fourth, but four consecutive turnovers thwarted their comeback. “I think it gave us a lot of momentum and gave us some confidence going into the second half knowing that we needed to still continue to keep it up,” senior Kelly Ryan said. “Knowing that if the seniors can step it up, then everyone else out there can step it up too.” The Gators (21-5, 9-3) were still without junior forward Sara Mickow (ankle), but the offense had little trouble finding other scoring options. Nine Gators scored at least three points, led by Kianna Clark’s 11 points. “That shows a lot of talent within our team,” Clark said of South’s scoring balance. “ ... I just wanted to do the best I could and play the best I could for the seniors because this was senior night and it was really important to them.” Clark’s active hands on defense created four steals, part of a South defense that flustered

There are few things more valuable than advice from someone you can trust. So when Marian Central quarterback Chris Streveler considered leaving high school early to join Minnesota’s football program, he knew just whom to call. Streveler spoke with former Marian quarterback Jon Budmayr, who left early in the 2008-09 school year to attend Wisconsin. After reassurance from Budmayr of the benefits, Streveler followed that plan and enrolled at Minnesota last month. While today is momentous for

athletes who will sign their NCAA national letters of intent with NCAA Division I and II schools, it will be just another day of classes and working out for Streveler, Prairie Ridge’s Sean Folliard and Crystal Lake South’s Boston Mathews. Those three followed the trend of the past five years and finished their Chris graduation requireStreveler ments a semester early and enrolled in college. Folliard enrolled at Northern Illinois, while Mathews is already at Toledo. Both are working out with their respective football teams. Those athletes who leave early sign athletic financial aid agree-

ment after they enrolled, so they will not sign NCAA letters of intent today. “I really like it up here, the transition has been pretty seamless,” Streveler said. “Jon said it was really helpful for him with learning and getting an offseason under his belt. Jon said it was good for getting used to the workouts and being with the guys.” The Golden Gophers’ weightroom, spacious and polished, was a stark contrast to Marian’s, but Streveler said he received a warm reception. “The guys treated me like one of the guys, not like a new guy,” Streveler said. “I’m trying to get names down. I’m good with most of the offensive guys.”

’Cats to play more games at Wrigley

Rockets tie NBA record for 3s in win The ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOUSTON – The Houston fans knew the Rockets were on the verge of history against Golden State on Tuesday, needing one more 3-pointer to set an NBA record. Warriors coach Mark Jackson wasn’t going to let that happen. The Rockets settled for tying an NBA record and set a franchise mark with 23 3-pointers in a 140-109 win over the Warriors. Houston matched the singlegame record for 3s set by Orlando in a win over Sacramento on Jan. 13, 2009. The Toyota Center crowd realized the outright record was within reach in the final three minutes, chanting “One more 3!” But the Warriors took away Houston’s chances of getting it by fouling at the end. Nuggets 112, Bucks 104: At Denver, Danilo Gallinari and Ty Lawson each scored 22 points and Denver rallied past Milwaukee for their seventh straight victory. Suns 96, Grizzlies 90: At Memphis, Tenn., Goran Dragic scored 15 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter to lead Phoenix past Memphis. Lakers 92, Nets 83: At New York, Kobe Bryant would have liked to celebrate more, maybe gloat about that highlight-reel dunk, but there were bigger concerns. Pacers 114, Hawks 103: At Indianapolis, Indiana is being tested, and doing well. First, a win over the Bulls on Monday to move into a tie for first in the Central Division. Then, a win over Atlanta.

CHICAGO – Northwestern will play five college football games at Wrigley Field under a partnership with the Cubs that was announced Tuesday. The dates of the games are still to be determined because of construction work at the Cubs’ storied ballpark. In 2010, Illinois beat Northwestern, 48-27, at Wrigley Field in a game that required both teams to run offensive plays only toward the west end zone near the third-base dugout. The east end zone in right field came within a foot or so of a heavily padded brick wall, raising safety concerns. Under the multiyear agreement, the Cubs will be allowed to market the baseball team on campus while Northwestern will able to do the same at Wrigley Field. Other Northwestern athletic programs also will get to play at the ballpark, including the baseball team and women’s lacrosse. “We are thrilled to partner with a professional sports

franchise as iconic as the Chicago Cubs in an agreement that truly is the first of its kind,” athletic director Jim Phillips said in a release. “As Chicago’s Big Ten Team, this is a natural fit that will create tremendous opportunities for our student-athletes, our coaches and our fans in the area.” Northwestern’s baseball team will host Michigan on April 20 at Wrigley Field, and the women’s lacrosse program, winners of seven of the past eight NCAA titles, will play Notre Dame at the ballpark next spring. “The Cubs are excited to establish an ongoing partnership with Northwestern that leverages our brands and facilities to help grow both fan bases for years to come,” said Crane Kenney, the president of business operations for the Cubs. “We enjoyed working with the university in 2010 to host the first college football game at Wrigley Field since AP file photo 1938 and look forward to entertaining a variety of colle- Illinois plays Northwestern in football Nov. 20, 2010, at Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs.

ALPINE SKIING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Knee shredded, Vonn done for season Carpenter likely out By ANDREW DAMPF The Associated Press

SCHLADMING, Austria – All it took was a moment. Lindsey Vonn landed hard and tumbled face first with a piercing shriek. Just like that, the star American skier was on the ground with two torn ligaments in her right knee and a broken bone in her lower leg. The cascading fall down the slope during the super-G at the alpine skiing world championships Tuesday knocked out the four-time World Cup champion for the rest of the season, the latest and most seLyndsey rious in a string of injuries Vonn for Vonn at skiing’s biggest events. The U.S. team said in a statement it expects her back for the next World Cup season and the 2014 Sochi Olympics, which start a year from this week. The harrowing accident came after Vonn was lifted into the air off a jump in the opening race at the championships. As she hit the ground, her right leg gave way and she spun down face first, throwing an arm out to protect herself. She ended up on her back as she smashed through a gate. On the TV feed, Vonn was clearly heard screaming an expletive as she landed, then a despairing “Yes, yes,” when someone asked, “Are you hurt?” Race leader and eventual champion Tina Maze watched with her mouth agape. The concern also was obvious on the face of Vonn’s sister, Laura Kildow, who has been traveling with her full time this season.

Slovenia’s Tina Maze reacts Tuesday as she sees Lindsey Vonn crash during the women’s super-G at the alpine skiing world championships in Schladming, Austria. For 12 minutes, Vonn lay on the snow getting medical treatment before being airlifted by helicopter to a hospital in Schladming. Vonn tore her ACL and medial collateral ligament in her right knee, U.S. ski team medical director Kyle Wilkens said in a statement. The broken bone was described as a “lateral tibial plateau fracture.” Christian Kaulfersch, the assistant medical director at the worlds, said Vonn left the Schladming hospital Tuesday af-

ternoon and will have surgery in another hospital. “She first wanted to go back to the team hotel to mentally deal with all what has happened,” Kaulfersch said. Vonn’s father, Alan Kildow, spoke with her by phone and said that she’s “mad at the way things turned out.” His daughter told him that she landed in a clump of sugar snow, or ice crystals, that caused her to fall forward, he said. “She’s a tough character. A very determined and tough character,” Kildow told The Associated Press in a phone interview. “She will be back.” Kildow said that surgery could take place as soon as this weekend, likely at the Steadman Clinic, in Vail, Colo. Recovery time varies, according to Dr. Tom Hackett, an orthopedic surgeon at the clinic and the team physician for the U.S. snowboard squad. But Vonn could be looking at six to eight months before she’s back on skis. “It’s not like at six months you say, ‘OK, you can get back on a super-G course,’ ” Hackett said. “There’s a progression to getting back on skis, getting back to taking some easy runs, getting back to some gates, and working your way back to some steeper terrain. There’s a whole return to snow progression that we’ve developed over many years.” Time enough to get back for Sochi? “I think so,” Hackett said. “I would be very optimistic she could come back strong. She’s a fierce competitor. She’s a fighter and chances are that she will – I would think – essentially take all of that athletic energy and put it into her rehabilitation. There’s a really good chance she could come back as strong as ever.”

for ’13; career over? By JIM SALTER The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Chris Carpenter, one of the best clutch pitchers in the storied history of the St. Louis Cardinals, may have thrown his final pitch. General manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny announced Tuesday that Carpenter almost certainly won’t pitch in 2013 and that his star-crossed career is probably over after a recurrence of a nerve injury that cost him most of last season. Carpenter did not attend, and Mozeliak said the emotions for the 37-year-old are still too raw. Retirement isn’t official yet. Carpenter plans to seek further medical evaluation. But Mozeliak seemed resigned to losing him. “He’s leaving the door slightly open, but it’s unlikely,” Mozeliak said of Carpenter’s return. Carpenter’s career numbers don’t reflect his value to the team. He is 144-94 with a 3.76 ERA in a career that began in Toronto in 1997. He spent six seasons with the Blue Jays and nine in St. Louis. He won the 2005 NL Cy Young Award, going 21-5 with a 2.83 ERA, and was second in 2009 after going 17-4 with a 2.24 ERA. More telling are his postseason results, including a 10-4 record and 3.00 ERA in 18 starts. There were the eight innings of three-hit shutout baseball in a Game 3 World Series win over Detroit in 2006, a series the Cardinals won in five games; a 1-0 shut-

His career is all the more remarkable considering the amount of time he spent on the disabled list because of various shoulder, elbow and nerve injuries. He missed most of 2002, all of 2003, most of 2007 and 2008, and then last year’s season that was limited to three regular-season starts. Carpenter phoned Mozeliak on Friday and told him that after trying to throw off a mound, the nerve injury was back, this time including numbness in his right arm, even bruising on his shoulder and hand.

BOYS BASKETBALL: RICHMOND-BURTON 54, NORTH BOONE 25

R-B takes care of business in 2nd half By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com

RICHMOND – For RichmondBurton, Tuesday’s Big Northern Conference East Division game against North Boone was a microcosm of its season. R-B (8-14 overall, 6-1 BNC East) began the game rather slowly and had no rhythm early when it came to offense, while North Boone was able to effectively navigate the Rockets’ press defense with crisp passing. But in the second half the Rockets cleaned up any issues and turned in one of their best halves of the season in a 54-25 victory. A 13-0 run to start the third quarter

was sparked by Mike Kaska’s 3-pointer followed by plenty of scoring in the paint to build on R-B’s 24-15 halftime lead. The Vikings’ Michael Gilmore stopped the bleeding when he scored from behind the arc with 4:27 to play in the quarter. “They’re really coming around,” R-B coach Brandon Creason said of his players. “We started the season really poorly and there were some dark days, and they have been resilient. We’ve come a long way from our start and I’m proud of them when they could’ve just given up.” The Rockets began the season 1-12 and without much identity, but as the season has progressed into conference play the Rockets have hit their stride

and have won seven of their past nine games. Their improved play was on display Tuesday night as each of the starting five scored at least six points, and when a comfortable lead was in hand the bench players took over and scored a combined 13 points. “We came out a little flat, but in the second half we really turned it on,” said Sam Kaufman, who scored a game-high 12 points. “We played good defense and got a lot of easy shots. And we work as a team, it’s fun like that. We always say it’s harder to guard five people than it is one. “With all of us going, we can score in the paint and hit some 3s. We’re definitely not shy about shooting an

open shot no matter where it is on the floor.” The Rockets’ improved play has them battling for the top spot in their division with Burlington Central. Burlington will host R-B on Friday in a game the Rockets had to push to the back of their minds Tuesday. “Friday’s game meant nothing if we didn’t take care of business tonight, so that was the focus,” Creason said. “We didn’t mention it prior because we knew if we didn’t win this then that game would be nothing. As it stands now, that is a for-first-place game.” The Rockets have come a long way since their “dark days” as their confidence in themselves has returned in time for a shot at first place.

Marian has had others leave early for college • GRADS Continued from page C1 Marian offensive coordinator Dirk Stanger said it takes a special type of student-athlete to leave early. “There are advantages and disadvantages,” Stanger said. “It depends on the player and the situation. It has to be where the player can handle it academically and be ready to handle the college course loads. From a career perspective, it gives you a leg up. You’re getting involved in things right away.” Marian had defensive lineman Sean Cwynar leave in the middle of 2007-08 for Notre Dame. Then, Budmayr left the next year. This is the first year the area had multiple players leave their schools early. They will return for some high school functions and walk in graduation with their senior classes. Mathews (6-foot-3, 250) planned during his junior year to leave early and join the Rockets. He had an abbreviated season after suffering a broken bone in his left ankle in

preseason practices. Mathews gutted it out through three games, then sat out for a while to let it mend. He returned for South’s final two games. Toledo coach Matt Campbell does not allow freshmen to speak to the news media. Mathews, who wowed college coaches with a YouTube video of himself hang-cleaning 315 pounds last year, is working out with the team and projected as a center. Folliard (6-2, 205) was a junior safety on Prairie Ridge’s Class 6A state championship team in 2011 and played safety and quarterback as a senior. He will move to linebacker for the Huskies. “There are a lot of great guys here,” Folliard said. “I fit in perfectly here. I’ve known I wanted to go early, I figured it out at the beginning of the school year. I talked to NIU’s coaches and they were all for it.” Folliard might get redshirted as a freshman while he adds more size to play linebacker, but he figures participating in spring practices still will be a huge advantage.

Norberg says he will sign with North Dakota Cary-Grove senior football player Kyle Norberg made it official Tuesday night and will sign with NCAA Division I North Dakota today, the first day of the signing period for college football players. Norberg held out as long as he could in case Iowa had another player decommit and a scholarship open up, but eventually he told Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz he was signing with North Dakota. Norberg played fullback and linebacker for C-G’s Class 6A state runner-up team last season and rushed for an area-best 2,218 yards and 27 touchdowns. Iowa had considered him at fullback; North Dakota wants the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder as an inside linebacker in its 3-4 scheme. – Joe Stevenson

especially impressive considering she almost didn’t play against South. Golden Eagles coach Joe Benoit said Berg was involved in a car accident Tuesday morning, but despite feeling sore she was cleared to play by Jacobs’ trainer. “I can’t ask more from a senior like that to come out and for as hot as she was in the first half, really we rode her momentum with her shooting in the first half,” Benoit said.

“She kept us in it. Just an outstanding effort from Payton.” Jacobs’ efficiency at the free throw line – 14 for 15 including 8 for 8 in the second quarter – helped the Golden Eagles keep pressure on South. The Golden Eagles’ defense faltered during the second half and their 25 total turnovers certainly didn’t help. But in spite of the loss, Benoit is hopeful Tuesday’s performance will spring Jacobs’ in the right direction.

Also, Marian Central’s Chris Streveler (Minnesota), Prairie Ridge’s Sean Folliard (Northern Illinois) and Crystal Lake South’s Boston Mathews (Toledo) all finished their high school requirements early and have enrolled at their schools, so they do not sign letters of intent.

Athlete of the Week MIKE INFELISE McHenry, sr. Infelise won the Grant Regional at 126 pounds Saturday to advance to the Barrington Sectional this weekend. In the semifinals, Infelise (33-4) won a 1-0 decision against Gurnee Warren’s Craig Mason and defeated Zion-Benton’s Tyler Braswell, 6-3, in the championship match. All three wrestlers are honorable mentions in the Illiniosmatmen.com rankings.

Noteworthy

Regionals by the numbers: Eighty-six local wrestlers placed in the top three at regionals and will represent their schools at sectional meets Friday and Saturday. That’s down slightly from 2012 when 90 qualified for sectionals. The numbers were boosted at the Class 2A Hampshire Regional, which hosted all local schools. By class, 17 qualified in 1A, 42 in 2A and 27 in 3A. Of the qualifiers, 30 brought home regional titles, including three freshmen. Prairie Ridge’s Travis Piotrowski won the Grant Regional at 106 pound in Class 3A, Woodstock North’s Jake Fiorito was first at the Hampshire Regional at 106 and Harvard’s Zack Martin won his home regional in 1A at 195 pounds. Overall, 12 freshmen qualified for sectionals, mostly at the lighter weights. Six of the 12 qualified at either 106 or 113. Martin was the only freshman to qualify in a weight class over 145. In the critical third-place regional matches that served as sectional eliminators, local wrestlers had some close win. Jacobs’ Cody Ferencz won a 4-2 overtime decision in his 126-pound third place match at the Huntley Regional. Also at Huntley, Crystal Lake South’s Casey Callahan took third with a 2-1 decision at 113, and Huntley’s Ricky Vigil won an 8-7 decision at 120 to qualify. Cary-Grove’s Patrick O’Malley won a 3-2 decision in his 220 thirdplace match at the Lake Zurich Regional. In Class 2A, Woodstock’s Nick Sundberg won his third-place match at 145 with a 3-2 decision at the Hampshire Regional. The Blue Streaks were perfect in third-place matches, going 4-0.

Danica, shut up and drive

If you’re going to watch one football game a year, it’s probably going to be the Super Bowl. And if you watch one car race, it’s going to be the Indy 500. The Super Bowl is better on TV than in person: You can’t see the field well from the stands, and you miss all the commercials. The Indy 500 is better in person. It’s loud – so loud that vibrations from the speeding cars shake you in the stands. It’s constantly thrilling: Even under a yellow flag (which means a hazard on the track), competitors are still driving and strategizing rather than standing around scratching themselves. And its opening ceremony is more stirring than Alicia Keys on piano, as grown men drinking Coors Lights before noon sniffle after Jim Nabors belts out “Back Home Again in Indiana.” (Congrats to Jim and new lawfully wedded husband, Stan.) The race has more history than the Super Bowl does (103 years vs. 46); a greater concentration of all-star families (the Bettenhausens, Unsers, Andrettis, Mears, etc.); and its characters are every bit as colorful as football’s: I’ll take A.J. Foyt, the crabbiest person in pro sports, drunk Al Unser Jr., and wall-climber Helio Castroneves over Ray Lewis any day. But the very best thing about auto racing is that it’s the only major sport in which women compete directly against men. Danica Patrick is the most visible right now, but dozens of women have raced at the highest levels, including some in the 1940s for NASCAR. Janet Guthrie was the first woman to compete in the Indy 500 in 1977. It was a big deal. Auto racing was a ridiculously manly sport, and Indianapolis was a very gender-normative kind of city. Racing requires all kinds of skills that people (unfortunately still) think of as masculine: speed, agility, aggression, spatial reasoning, fast reaction times. You have to have endurance – 500 miles is the distance from Indianapolis to Toronto – and you have to understand engines and other supposedly macho stuff. And don’t forget courage. Auto racing is the most dangerous sport. If something goes wrong in football, a player gets a concussion. If something goes wrong in racing, a driver gets decapitated. Guthrie was the best role model a kid (me) could ask for. In addition to having courage, speed, etc., she was smart, cool and determined. She was a physics major, aeronautics engineer, pilot and flight instructor. She applied to be an astronaut. (To NASA’s everlasting shame, it clung to its sexism longer than auto racing did.) Guthrie had mechanical trouble her rookie year at Indy and dropped out before the finish, but the next year she came in ninth, well ahead of Mario Andretti and Johnny Rutherford.

Since Guthrie retired from racing in 1980, 10 other women have competed in the Indy 500. In both 2010 and 2011, four women were among the 33 qualifiers to start the race. Lyn St. James founded a program to train girls to race. Sarah Fisher runs her own racing team. Danica Patrick is by far the most famous of these women race car drivers. She was the first to lead the Indy 500, in 2005, her rookie year. She was out front for 19 laps, and they were the most thrilling laps in the past few decades of racing. Everybody in the stands was jumping up and down. (I wasn’t there that year, but my dad and brother were.) People were screaming. People were crying. She finished fourth that year and third the next, and she won an Indy car race in Japan in 2008. She became the most popular driver on the circuit. After years of losing audience and drivers, Indy car racing was suddenly exciting again. So what did Patrick do with this newfound and well-deserved renown? After Janet Guthrie became famous, she starred in an ad for Havoline Oil. After Danica Patrick became famous, she starred in a series of stupid, sexist ads for a web-hosting company. The fastest woman in the history of Indy car racing became a “Go Daddy Girl.” A Super Bowl ad was a spectacularly offensive example of the genre. It features a model, representing beauty, making out with a guy who is supposed to look freakish in TV world and so represents brains. In the real world, he’s not the least bit hideous or even odd. Their kiss is noisy, prolonged and lippy. Patrick narrates the ad and explains that the company has a “sexy side” and a “smart side” and that “together, they’re perfect.” Offensive commercials are everywhere, and there’s only so much outrage to go around. But people are right to be irked at Danica Patrick. She squandered the good will of the many fans who wanted to see a woman win at what used to be a man’s game. Guthrie and the other woman drivers pushed one of the most sexist subcultures to respect women or get the hell out of the way while they pass you on the backstretch, and Patrick undermines it all. She’s become a harmless, hair-flipping mascot for another subculture, technology services, that still suffers from rampant sexism. Patrick recently left Indy car racing to compete in NASCAR. Good luck and good riddance. In the meantime, tune in to the Indy 500 on the Sunday before Memorial Day to cheer for Simona De Silvestro, Ana Beatriz, Pippa Mann, Katherine Legge or any other woman who is smart, fast, brave and self-respecting. •฀Laura Helmuth is Slate’s science and health editor.

Startli฀g revelatio฀ o฀ possible da฀gers of a฀tacids i฀ treati฀g stomach woes a฀d i฀digestio฀ By Mauree฀ Rey฀olds I am ฀o medical expert. Far from it.

Amid the outpouring of support Lada has received since taking the freelance position with CSN are notes on her Facebook page and Twitter messages from Fox 6 fans, many male, who will miss their Milwaukee sports expert. “It’s a quest for credibility,” Lada said. “I try not to make it a gender thing, but I know the fact that I’m [female] contributes to the challenges. There are so many more allowances made for male counterparts, I think. And when a female, particularly a sports broadcaster, seems to not be in

the know they are often written off as ‘insert insult here.’ That’s infuriating at this stage in the game, and I think it’s an archaic attitude. I will continue to convince those people that they’re wrong.” This determination will surprise no one who knew Lada in high school, of course. The Marian Central Athletic Hall of Fame inductee spun yarns too well to go unnoticed. Each time she walked to the front of the classroom during her speech and composition class, the one Lada likened to the movie “Dead Poet’s Society,” her classmates must have seen flashes of the professional Lada would become. Now the humble Lada wants to show them how far she still believes she has to go. “I don’t want to be satisfied,” Lada said. “I don’t want to become acutely aware of how big of a deal [working for CSN] is. I just want to continue to improve.” •฀Maureen Lynch is a freelance sports writer. Write to her at sportsdesk@nwherald.com.

NIU FOOTBALL

Most recruits stick with NIU after coach leaves By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com

Blake Holder was never committed to Dave Doeren, or the old Northern Illinois football coaching staff. Holder, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver from Streamwood who gave an oral commitment to the Huskies in June, admits he thought about reopening his recruiting when Doeren took the North Carolina State job the day after winning his second consecutive MidAmerican Conference championship. There was also the fact Holder saw the coach who recruited him, Ryan Nielsen, and wide receivers coach Frisman Jack- Sean Folliard son leave DeKalb to join Doeren in Raleigh, N.C. Holder said he was impressed with Carey after visiting NIU in December. “I committed to Northern Illinois University as a school, not the coaches,” Holder said. “I knew that was the school I wanted to go to regardless of the coaches. I wanted to stay, and once I met [Carey], I knew I wanted to stay because he’s a great guy.” Prairie Ridge safety Sean Folliard, who’s already on campus after graduating high school a semester early and will transition to linebacker, said it wasn’t easy when he first heard the news of Doeren leaving. However, for Folliard, there wasn’t too much of a change with Carey being promoted. It also helped that linebackers coach Kevin Kane is still part of the staff. “First day [without Doeren], I was pretty scared. When I first heard about it, I was hyperventilating, stuff like that,” Folliard said. “But there’s no real change for me.” For Carey, it’s been a busy couple of months. He had to prepare for the Orange Bowl, where he also handled play-calling duties. There also was the job of putting together a coaching staff, and then recruit-

ing. To Carey, this time of year is all about time management, when coaches are spending hour after hour either on the road or at an airport. “You’ve got to use all the time that you have in the day because a lot of it’s eaten up in travel,” he said. While much of the recruiting class has stayed in tact since the coaching change, there have been some new commitments, and players who have decommitted, after Doeren left. Jerseyville Jersey quarterback Mitch Kimble and St. Louis wide receiver Corey Winfield committed to NIU over the summer but have pulled theirs back and are now headed to Syracuse, according to Scout.com. Lincoln-Way East senior quarterback Tom Fuessel reopened his recruiting just before Doeren left for N.C. State and is now committed to Northwestern. National recruiting analyst Tom Lemming said Carey’s familiarity with recruits probably allowed NIU to keep most of its class together after Doeren’s departure. “Since they hired from within, I don’t think [the coaching change] has that much of an impact,” Lemming said. “I think they did a good job of clearing things up to the recruits quickly.” The Huskies also have added players such as Mobile, Ala., running back Jordan Huff and Alpharetta, Ga., wide receiver Malik Mitchell. “I felt good about the class that we had before Dave left. There had been changes to the class since Dave left,” Carey said. “It’s a small class, but it’s a strong class.” Carey said the fact he won’t be signing a big 20- to 25-player class helped in recruiting this season. With a smaller class, which should be about 15 to 20 players, the coaching staff was able to build better relationships, according to Carey. “We were able to manage that,” he said. “... We really got to know them quite well, quite quickly because there wasn’t a large number of them.”

Ravens fans break through barriers and walk with players during a victory parade Tuesday in Baltimore.

BALTIMORE RAVENS

Fans march with Ravens By JESSICA GRESKO The Associated Press BALTIMORE – Baltimore celebrated with its Super Bowl champion Ravens on Tuesday, with thousands of fans in purple lining the streets and packing the team’s stadium for a celebration. Fans filled the square in front of City Hall and cheered when the team arrived and when players held the silver Lombardi trophy aloft. The Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management estimated that 200,000 people took part in the celebration in Charm City, including at City Hall, along the parade route and at the stadium. Coach John Harbaugh thanked the fans for their support, and safety Ed Reed sang the melody of Eddie Money’s “Two Tickets to Paradise.” Retiring middle linebacker Ray Lewis, the only current player to have started with the team when it came to the city from Cleveland in 1996, told

fans the team had fulfilled a promise to go to New Orleans and win. “The city of Baltimore – I love you for ever and ever and ever and ever,” Lewis told fans in front of City Hall. The players were about an hour late arriving, but fans waited to see them pile into military vehicles and set off on their drive to the stadium. The city shot off purple and white confetti as the parade started and the Queen song “We Are the Champions” played over a loudspeaker. Quarterback Joe Flacco and several other players rode in their own camouflage-colored military vehicles, while others stood on a float decorated like a football field with a yellow goal post. Lewis had a position of honor in a military vehicle that brought up the end of the procession. He touched his hand to his heart and gave fans a double thumbs-up as he started on the parade route. Fans followed behind, surrounding the back of the vehicle.

Fans wore every article of purple clothing imaginable. In addition to team jerseys, people were dressed in purple hats and scarves, purple Mardi Gras beads, purple wigs. One man wore a Ravens flag as a cape, and many women came wearing purple lipstick and eye shadow. Some fans along the parade route said they also planned to go to the team’s M&T Bank Stadium. But the stadium, which usually seats 71,000, reached capacity around 12:30 p.m., a police spokesman said, and latearriving fans were turned away. When the team did arrive, they treated fans to a thank-you celebration that lasted just over a half an hour. Lewis emerged from a tunnel onto the field, handed off the Lombardi trophy and did his signature dance, “The Squirrel.” He thanked fans for their love of the team and said he wanted to win the Super Bowl to repay Baltimore for everything it’s done for him.

CHINESE NEW YEAR

Shrimp And Shitake Noodle Stir-Fry AP photos

NEW YEAR WITH

NOODLES

Celebrate year of the snake with shrimp, shitake stir-fry By ALISON LADMAN • The Associated Press These noodles are a fun and approachable dish equally good for a busy weeknight or to celebrate Chinese New Year. Asian markets are jammed with many different noodle varieties. We’ve opted for a thick noodle for this quick stir-fry dish, but you can use other varieties for a different texture. Just be sure to cook the noodles until just a few minutes shy of being done; they will continue to cook while being stir-fried. As with all stir-fries, which by definition are cooked fast and at a high heat, it’s best to prep all of your ingredients and have them near the stove before you begin cooking.

Shrimp And Shitake Noodle Stir-Fry Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 2 tablespoons sesame oil 1 small sweet onion, sliced 7 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, thinly sliced 1 red bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced 9 1/2-ounce package thick Asian-style noodles, such as udon 1 pound small shrimp, cooked and peeled 2 tablespoons oyster sauce 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. While the water heats, in a large deep skillet or a wok over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the onion and saute for 4 minutes, or until tender. Add the mushrooms and cook for 6 to 7 minutes, or until browned and tender. Add the red pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Just after adding the red pepper to the pan, add the noodles to the boiling water. Cook for 2 minutes, or until just al dente.

After 2 minutes, use tongs to pull the noodles out of the boiling water and add directly to the wok. Add the shrimp, oyster sauce and soy sauce, then toss well. Cook until heated through and the noodles have finished cooking, about another 3 to 4 minutes. Toss with the sesame seeds and scallions.

Sichuan Beef will leave a tingle on your tongue By ALISON LADMAN The Associated Press In Chinese cooking, the Sichuan pepper often is used with meats and is a basic component of five-spice powder. In this weeknight-friendly beef recipe, we combine the Sichuan pepper with spicy chili garlic paste for a dish that will jumpstart your mouth.

Sichuan Beef Start to finish: 30 minutes (plus marinating) Servings: 4 1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced across the grain 3 tablespoons chili garlic paste 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 1 teaspoon Sichuan pepper, crushed 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce 2 tablespoons mirin or rice wine 3 stalks celery, thinly sliced on the diagonal 2 carrots, thinly sliced on the diagonal 3 scallions, cut into 1/2 inch pieces Rice or noodles, to serve Place the flank steak slices in a zip-close plastic bag. Add the chili garlic paste, ginger and Sichuan pepper. Seal the bag, then massage the seasonings into the meat. Refrigerate and allow to marinate at least 2 hours. When ready to cook, in a large, deep skillet or a wok over high, heat the oil until it shimmers. Add the beef and saute for 8 minutes, or until the beef is browned and starting to dry. Add the soy sauce, mirin, celery, carrots and scallions. Cook for another 4 minutes, or until the vegetables are crisp tender. Serve over noodles or rice.

Vegetarian Steamed Dumplings With Sweet-And-Sour Sauce AP photo

All wrapped up Easy vegetarian steamed dumplings By J.M. HIRSCH The Associated Press

W

hether or not Chinese New Year marks a major event in your life, it’s easy to love many of the foods associated with it. Dumplings are a traditional choice for the holiday, which this year begins Feb. 10. And while there are seemingly endless variations on the simple theme of stuffing rounds of dough with something savory and delicious, the basic steamed dumpling is among my favorites. Not the least because it is incredibly weeknight friendly. I always start by using purchased wonton skins as the dough. These skins, which are available in various shapes and sizes, are widely available, inexpensive, need no prep, cook quickly and are easy to work with. For the filling, you can use virtually anything you like. Seasoned ground meats (pork, poultry or even beef all work quite nicely) are wonderful, especially when combined with diced vegetables, such as carrots and onion. The only trick is to make certain the ingredients aren’t watery, as this will ruin the texture

of the dumplings. If your filling contains many vegetables, it’s a good idea to give them a quick stir-fry before adding them to the mixture. This helps remove excess water. For smaller amounts of vegetables, this isn’t necessary. You’ll also want to opt for lean ground meats for the same reason. For this dumpling recipe, I LOG ON decided to go vegetarian and used purchased seasoned and baked Find more recipes tofu in the filling. If you’d rather to celebrate the use meat, substitute an equal Chinese New Year at planitnorthwest.com/ amount of diced or ground meat and skip the food processing step. foodanddrink or visit pinterest.com/nwher- You’ll also need to steam for a bit longer (use an instant thermomald/recipes. eter to check the progress and ensure you hit a safe cooking temperature). For this recipe, I use a simple fold-and-pinch method of forming the dumplings. It requires no special equipment or skill. But if you make a lot of dumplings, consider getting a dumpling press sold for just a few dollars at Asian markets. These clamshell-style presses neatly fold and crimp the dumplings into attractive packets.

Vegetarian Steamed Dumplings With Sweet-And-Sour Sauce Start to finish: 45 minutes Makes 48 dumplings

For the dumplings: 12 ounces seasoned baked tofu, cut into cubes 6 scallions, ends trimmed 2 cloves garlic 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, leaves and stems 1/2 cup finely grated carrots 1 whole egg or 2 egg whites, beaten 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil 1 teaspoon hot sauce 12-ounce package 3-inch square wonton wrappers For the sweet-and-sour sauce: 1/2 cup rice vinegar (cider vinegar can be substituted) 2/3 cup packed brown sugar 2 tablespoons apricot jam 2 tablespoons ketchup 2 teaspoons soy sauce 1 teaspoon hot sauce 1 tablespoon cornstarch 2 tablespoons water In a food processor, combine the tofu, scallions, garlic, cilantro, carrots, egg, hoisin, soy sauce, sesame oil

and hot sauce. Pulse until the tofu is finely chopped, but not ground, about ten 1-second pulses. One at a time, place 1 teaspoon of the mixture in the center of each wonton wrapper. Dunk your fingers in water, then use them to wet the edges of the wrapper. Gather the edges of the wrapper over the filling, pinching them together to form a small bundle. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers. In a large saute pan, bring about 1 inch of water to a boil. Set a bamboo or other steamer basket over the water, then lightly coat it with cooking spray. Working in batches if necessary, arrange the dumplings in the steamer (they should not touch), then cover and steam for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the sweet-and-sour sauce. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the vinegar, brown sugar, jam, ketchup, soy sauce and hot sauce. Bring to a simmer. In a small glass, mix the cornstarch and water, then add to the saucepan. Simmer for another 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Serve the dumplings with sweet-andsour sauce on the side for dipping.

Shrimp toasts have ‘fried’ crunch without the fat By SARA MOULTON The Associated Press

Chinese New Year is the sort of new year celebration I love. Because unlike the Western tradition of big blowout parties, Chinese New Year is a time to get together with family, to give thanks for what you have, to retire your grudges, and to look forward to a year of peace and happiness. In that way, I think of it much as I do Thanksgiving. It’s in the spirit of Chinese New Year (which this year starts Feb. 10) that I’ve reconfigured one of my favorite dim sum dishes – shrimp toasts. Not familiar with dim sum is? Think of it as Chinese tapas, or small plates of food. Traditionally, shrimp toasts are made of chopped or ground shrimp seasoned with soy sauce, sesame oil, scallions and rice wine. This mixture then is mounded onto little toasts and deepfried. The result is creamy on top, crispy on the bottom, and richly flavorful through and through. Like everyone else on the planet, if it’s fried, I love it. In this case, though, I was hoping to get the crunch of frying

EVERYDAY DINNERS Sara Moulton without the fat. I did a bunch of research and discovered that while the toast in this dish usually is made of plain old white bread, sometimes it’s swapped out for a slice of baguette. Since baguettes become wonderfully crunchy when baked, I figured that was how – without frying – I could conjure the crunchiness necessary for this recipe. But then I worried that the shrimp mixture would dry out during baking. It needed protection, or some sort of coating. That’s when I reached for one of my favorite stealth ingredients – mayonnaise. It makes a terrific glaze. I spiked low-fat mayo with some sesame oil and sprinkled it with sesame seeds and, sure enough, it did the trick. The shrimp topping stayed creamy.

32 diagonally sliced 1/2-inchthick baguette slices Cooking spray 1/2 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined 1 large egg white 2 1/2 teaspoons sake, Chinese rice wine or dry sherry 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger 1 large garlic clove, minced 1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, divided Heaping 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon sugar 4-ounce can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped 2 scallions, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup) 1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise 2 teaspoons sesame seeds Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. On a rimmed baking sheet, arrange the baguette slices in a single layer. Spritz the bread slices on both sides with cooking spray. Bake them on the oven’s middle shelf for 4 minutes. Remove them from the oven, turn over each slice, then set aside. Reduce the oven to 350 degrees F. In a food processor, combine the shrimp, egg white, sake, ginger,

garlic, hot sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of the sesame oil, the salt and the sugar. Puree until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the water chestnuts and scallions. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Mound a rounded tablespoon of the shrimp mixture on top of each toast and spread evenly over the toast. Brush the top of each mound with some of the mayonnaise mixture, then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake on the oven’s middle shelf for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the shrimp mixture is just cooked through. Serve hot.

Mardi Gras dish gets healthy Traditional red beans and rice reimagined as a soup By SARA MOULTON The Associated Press

Red beans and rice is one of the signature dishes of New Orleans, which explains why Louis Armstrong, perhaps the city’s best known ambassador, used to sign off his letters, “Red beans and ricely yours...” With Mardi Gras upon us, I wanted to turn this classic dish into a hearty (and healthy) soup fit for a Mardi Gras party. Though Louisiana understandably is ground zero for Mardi Gras, people everywhere tend to get in the spirit, and there’s no reason for us not to join in. All it took to transform the standard red beans and rice into soup was the addition of celery, onion and green bell peppers (often called “the Holy Trinity” of New Orleans cuisine), a little Creole seasoning, some chicken stock and several ounces of andouille sausage. I modeled my Creole seasoning on the one associated with Commander’s Palace (a landmark New Orleans restaurant) and the two most famous chefs to emerge from it – Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse. At the core of the repertoires of both of these superstars is a special spice blend that includes powdered onion and garlic. I’m not much of a fan of powdered anything, but I make an exception for this seasoning mix. In this case, it turns a good soup into a great soup. The kidney beans are little marvels. They’re rich in protein and a terrific source

Classic New Orleans desserts together at last By ALISON LADMAN The Associated Press Bananas Foster and bread pudding are two of the most popular desserts in New Orleans. So in honor of the over-the-top nature of Mardi Gras, we decided to take a more-is-better approach and combine them into one.

Couple’s lack of intimacy Take steps to monitor elderly is relationship’s only flaw parent’s welfare from distance Dear Abby: My boyfriend

and I have been seeing each other for about a year. He was a virgin when we met. Three months into the relationship, we had sex. I am 18 and he is 21. We used to have sex often, but now he is completely uninterested in anything sexual. I feel like he isn’t attracted to me anymore, although I haven’t changed much since we started dating. Other than sex, we have a great relationship. We haven’t had a single fight, but it hurts my feelings that he doesn’t want to have sex with me anymore. What’s the solution to our problem? – Teen In

St. George, Utah Dear Teen: Have a frank,

non-confrontational talk with your boyfriend and ask him what has changed. It may be that the novelty wore off. He may have a low sex drive, or he may be interested in women only as friends. But you will never know until you ask him. When you do, let him know whatever his answer is, you care about him and you hope he feels the same way about you. Dear Abby: My 31-year-old daughter, “Layla,” is beautiful, accomplished and earns a good living. She has a lot of friends and always has a boyfriend. She has had both long-term and short-term

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips relationships. Layla isn’t married and hopes to meet the right person. I’m very anxious about it, but this is her life and her choice. People constantly ask, “How’s your daughter? Is she seeing anyone?” And when I meet someone for the first time who asks about my children, the second question they ask is, “Is she married?” (They don’t ask that about my son.) This is painful for me. What should I say in response to this omnipresent question?

– Layla’s Mom Dear Mom: All you have to do is smile and say: “My daughter is single, loves her job and is quite successful. Now tell me about YOUR children.” Dear Abby: I have been divorced for eight years. My daughter is learning how to drive. In her mother’s car, while under her mother’s supervision, she hit their garage door. My ex believes I should pay half the cost of the new garage door. Also, she did a total upgrade, turning the entrance to the garage into one large door instead of two.

Dear Dr. K: How can I help care for my elderly mother? She lives alone, but not close enough for me to visit regularly. Dear Reader: My father died young, but my mother lived into her late 70s. She lived 3,000 miles away and alone. As she started to lose some of her energy and independence, it was pretty stressful for me. You just can’t know what’s going on with the person you love. Supervising care and handling problems that arise are difficult, too. Here are some tips I followed. I hope they can ease some of your difficulties: •฀Book฀regular฀trips.฀ When you visit your mother, try to arrive at the beginning of the week. That way, you’ll have several weekdays to handle problems and line up services. Call ahead to make appointments if you plan to research caregivers or nursing homes. •฀If฀you’re฀checking฀up฀on฀ caregivers already in place, it may be better not to give advance notice. When you arrive, look around and ask yourself: How is your mother doing? Is the house clean? Are pantry and fridge shelves well stocked? Are bills being paid? •฀Take฀some฀time฀to฀ organize important papers.

I say I shouldn’t have to pay. She says if it was someone else’s house we would pay. I agree, but it is not, and my exwife was in the car – not me.

– Who Pays? In California Dear Who Pays?: She pays. It should not be your responsibility to foot half the bill for an upgrade to your ex’s garage door, particularly because she was the one who was with your daughter when the accident occurred. Don’t let her bamboozle you. Dear Abby: I’m not too tall or too short. I’m not overweight or too thin. I never receive comments about my appearance that cause me to be sensitive. My husband doesn’t drink, abuse me or stray. I have had no problems through the years with family members, neighbors or coworkers. My grown children are thoughtful, considerate and loving. Even my in-laws love me. So tell me, did you ever receive a letter such as this? –

Joy In San Diego Dear Joy: Not in recent history. And it’s probably because people regard my column as a place to dump their troubles rather than share their many blessings, as you have done today.

Nicolino’s

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff If possible, make copies of these documents to take home, or at least note where this information is kept. •฀Set฀up฀a฀safety฀net.฀Give฀ neighbors or friends a set of house keys. Look into medical alert systems, such as a pendant your mother can press if she falls or needs help in an emergency. I did that with my mother. Although she never had to use it, knowing it was there was a source of great comfort to her and to me. Have a regular phone-in time to check that everything is fine. Arrange for regular visitors. Ask friends, relatives and neighbors to alert you if anything seems worrisome. •฀Keep฀helpful฀numbers฀ handy. Put together a single list of doctors, social workers, neighbors, friends and helpful agencies. •฀Arrange฀necessary฀ services. When possible, interview and hire people, such as home nursing staff, in person. If you’re far enough away like I was, that isn’t always possible. Arrange for non-health services, such as landscaping, grocery delivery and cleaning services, as well.

•฀Keep฀tabs฀on฀finances.฀ Check financial statements to stay apprised of any possible problems or financial abuse. •฀Hire฀a฀geriatric-care฀ manager in your mother’s area. That can lift a large weight off your shoulders. He or she can help cut through red tape and efficiently coordinate care. Your mother’s doctor may have some recommendations. A neighbor checked in with my mother every day, and vice versa. If my mother was going to be away, she let the neighbor know. They were good and trusted friends. The neighbor had a key to my mother’s apartment. One day, my mother didn’t answer the phone when the neighbor called. Mom’s car was in the garage. The neighbor entered her apartment and discovered that she had died in her sleep the night before. Her loss hit me hard, but that was how she wanted to go. And I took comfort in knowing she had felt safe and secure in the last years of her life.

Budweiser foal named Hope THINGS

The three-week-old star of Budweiser’s Super Bowl ad now has a name: Hope. Anheuser-Busch said Tuesday its contest to find a name for the foal born Jan. 16 at the company’s Clydesdale ranch in mid-Missouri generated more than 60,000 tweets, Facebook comments and other messages. Hope was one of the more popular names generated through the social media effort. Other suggestions were nods to the song featured in the commercial, including Landslide – the name of the song – and Stevie – for Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks. “We were overwhelmed by the response we got,” Lori Shambro, brand director for Budweiser, said in a statement.

Latifah has Netflix deal

Prosecutor wants new sentence There is no credible evidence Chris Brown completed the community service he was required to do in the beating of Rihanna, and he should be forced to repeat six months of manual labor in Los Angeles, prosecutors told a judge Tuesday. A motion by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says the records submitted to prove Brown finished the community labor sentenced by Virginia authorities contain numerous discrepancies and that the R&B singer was essentially unsupervised. Brown was ordered to serve five years on probation and perform six months of community labor after he pleaded guilty in the February 2009 assault on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. Investigators from Los Angeles traveled to Virginia to try to verify that Brown had worked all the hours as reported by the Richmond Police Department, but they were unable to confirm it, the motion said. “This inquiry provided no credible, competent or verifiable evidence that defendant Brown performed his community labor as presented to this court,” Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray wrote. The records submitted by Richmond Police Chief Bryan Norwood are “at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.” Richmond Police spokesman Gene Lepley had no immediate comment on the allegations. Brown was allowed to perform his community labor in his home state of Virginia. Richmond police submitted paperwork last year indicating Brown had completed his sentence, but the logs showed the singer performing double shifts in the city and at a day care center where his mother once worked.

Sale Dates:

Queen Latifah’s production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment, has signed a deal with Netflix. The entertainer announced Tuesday the multiyear deal gives the streaming service first look at titles from her production company. It starts this spring. Latifah launched Flavor Unit in Queen Latifah New Jersey with Shakim Compere. It’s now based in Miami. The company has produced films such as “Bringing Down the House” and “Just Wright,” both starring Latifah. It also produced the HBO film “Life Support,” which earned a Golden Globe Award for Latifah. Latifah said in a statement that Netflix is a “strong brand and the perfect place to showcase our projects.”

Troggs singer Reg Presley dies The structure is simple, the guitar riffs basic, the lyrics at best inane, but the Troggs’ “Wild Thing” remains a garage rock classic more than 45 years after its release made The Troggs and lead singer Reg Presley international stars. Presley, whose raunchy, suggestive voice powers this paean to teenage lust, died Monday after a year-long struggle with lung cancer that had forced him and the band into reluctant retirement, his agent Keith Altham announced on

U2 frontman Bono and NBC news anchor Brian Williams are the newest board members of a charity launched by the New Jersey governor and his wife to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. With their appointments, announced Tuesday, they join Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and other celebrities on the board. So far, the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund has raised more than $32 million from more than 22,000 donors worldwide.

Estefan stage musical planned Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio are hoping the rhythm is going to lead to Broadway. The duo on Tuesday announced they’ve teamed with the Nederlander Organization to try to create a musical based on their lives and take it to the Great White Way. “We are very excited to share this story, which is based on hope, determination and the belief that with hard work and passion, our dreams can become our reality. Our music has been a true reflection of who we are, where we came from and the journey that has brought us to where we are today,” the Estefans said in a statement.

Goddard celebrates 25th anniversary County schools raise funds for Ronald McDonald House NORTHWEST HERALD Goddard Schools in McHenry County are helping to celebrate the national organization’s 25th anniversary with a special fundraising campaign to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities. Schools in Lake in the Hills and Cary are joining in the celebration and fundraising efforts, with the hopes of helping reach a national goal of $250,000. To reach each school’s individual goal of $577, Goddard Schools will be fundraising until Feb. 15. The majority of the money raised locally will stay in the community. The nearly 400 Goddard Schools nationwide will be fundraising to support children and families served by their local Ronald McDonald House Charities chapters. “At The Goddard School, even the youngest children learn about compassion and cooperation. This partnership with RMHC provides a fantastic opportunity for children to learn about good deeds and what it means to support those in need,” said Sue Adair, director of education at Goddard Systems Inc. “The fundraising efforts for RMHC allow the children to learn firsthand the importance of helping other families in their communities and across the country.” In addition to each school’s fundraising efforts, the children are creating birthday cards to support children served by RMHC. The birthday cards will be distributed throughout the year by RMHC directors to pediatric patients or family members celebrating birthdays during their, or a loved one’s, hospital stay. For every card that Goddard Schools collect, Goddard Systems Inc., franchisor of The Goddard School,

Search is on for outstanding senior volunteer NORTHWEST HERALD

CARY – The search is on for Illinois’ outstanding senior volunteer. The Salute to Senior Service program, sponsored by Home Instead Inc., honors the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service. Nominations for outstanding senior volunteers will be accepted through March 31. State winners then will be selected by popular vote at SalutetoSeniorService.com. Online voting will take place April 15-30. From those state winners, a panel of senior care experts will pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree. Home Instead Inc. will donate $500 to each of the state winners’ favorite nonprofit organizations and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame. In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner’s nonprofit charity of choice. “We all know seniors who do so much for our community,” said Bob Koch, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office in Cary. “These silent heroes give selflessly, expecting nothing in return. And yet, their contributions often make a difference not only to the organizations they serve, but in changing how the public views growing older.” Senior care professionals and those who work at hospitals, senior care facilities and other places where seniors volunteer are encouraged to nominate older adults. So, too, are family caregivers and the adult children of aging parents. Older adults also may selfnominate. To complete and submit a nomination form and to view the contest’s official rules, visit SalutetoSeniorService.com. Or mail completed nomination forms to Salute to Senior Service, P.O. Box 285, Bellevue, NE 68005. For more information about Salute to Senior Service or the Home Instead Senior Care network’s services, call 847-462-0303.

BUSINESS

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Plug into the Power Game to succeed This year could be the most profitable and successful year in your company’s history. It all depends what you do as a leader to increase your power and the power of your organization. Webster’s Dictionary defines “power” as the ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something. If you want to have a powerful year, stop sitting on the sidelines in your business or career. Now is the time to get into the Power Game. Playing the Power Game is based on the premise that successful people throughout history cultivated abundant reserves of power, energy and creativity and developed the ability to use these resources for the realization of a worthy result or game. We all have some area of our lives where we feel not merely able but powerful. The success you have had in your business to date is evidence of that power. Your ability to transfer this positive power into something tangible determined the level of success you currently enjoy. Increasing your success means increasing the power you bring to your organization. To launch this process, analyze and activate the following three-step strategy that I call the “Power Leader Assess, Engage and Ignite Power Game.” Step 1 – Assess: Create a Power Ledger. Analyze your career and company’s history. Itemize your patterns of inspired action, accomplishment and success in the asset column.

Step 2 – Engage: Create Power Zones. Analyze your Power Ledger. Determine what the most admirable and powerful strengths are in yourself and your business and realize that nothing about us or our business is so good that it cannot be improved. Ask yourself: “Where can I/we improve on our success?” There is always a way that can be done. Nobody is perfect, but striving for it will translate into greater success. This is a Power Zone. Take a hard look at your personal and professional liabilities. Determine which of your liabilities are major and which of them are minor. Just as with your strengths, no one is perfect. Some of your liabilities and weaknesses are minor and hardly worth your time or attention. Know that they are there and deal with them before they surge and “trip the circuit.” It is the major weaknesses and failings which reduce our power that demand the most dedicated attention.

Create an Opportunity Power Zone. Ask your employees and clients, “How can our company be the most successful and powerful in our industry? If we were more powerful and successful what would be possible for all of us?” Take action on your Power Zones. Study the most powerful organizations and people in and out of your industry and construct a newer, better version of the Power Game for yourself and your business. Remember that success and power leave a blueprint that will guide you to new opportunities. Step 3 – Ignite: Demonstrate Your Power. You must be willing to lead by example and take responsibility for yourself and your organization. Increase your physical, mental, emotional, financial, family/community/ spiritual power as a leader. Invest your time with other powerful leaders that are committed to growing, excellence and contribution. Spend important planning and thinking time “in the Power Zone” of success and achievement. Read biographies of powerful people throughout history. You will be amazed at the similarities in their powerful habits and simple lifestyles. These Power Leaders use not only their head but their heart, soul and body to demonstrate their power. Discover the keys to enjoying a powerful business and a healthy life. Apply your innate talents, passions and strengths and reduce your liabilities to experience renewed power.

The positive effects of abundant power and increased focus will transform the way you approach your daily living and the results you enjoy. Yes, being a Power Leader requires your focused attention. You need to be aware of the power leakages in your life and reduce the time spent with the people and in the places that drain your power. Instead, power down; refresh and recharge your power reserves. Take a lesson from the most successful athletes and invest time each day visualizing your most powerful performance and desired outcomes. Challenge your brain to expand out of any predictable, stale thinking and instead supercharge yourself and your business with new powerful ideas to achieve competitive advantage, growth and profits. Taking the time and making the effort to play the Power Game will grow your business. By engaging in the “Power Leader Assess, Engage and Ignite” process you will create new, powerful opportunities and have more fun along the way!

Dell in $24.4 billion founder-led deal to bow out of stock market

U.S. home prices rose last year by 8.3 pct., most in six years

Service firms grew more slowly in January behind weaker orders

WASHINGTON – U.S. home prices jumped by the most in 6 ½ years in December, spurred by a low supply of available homes and rising demand. Home prices rose 8.3 percent in December compared with a year earlier, according to a report Tuesday from CoreLogic, a real estate data provider. That is the biggest annual gain since May 2006. Prices rose last year in 46 of 50 states. Home prices also increased 0.4 percent in December from the previous month. That’s a healthy increase given that sales usually slow over the winter months. Steady increases in prices are helping fuel the housing recovery. They’re encouraging some people to sell homes and enticing would-be buyers to purchase homes before prices rise further.

WASHINGTON – Growth at U.S. service companies slowed slightly in January behind weaker new orders and business activity. The Institute for Supply Management said Tuesday that its index of nonmanufacturing activity dipped to 55.2 in January. That’s down from 55.7 in December, which was the highest level in nearly a year. The modest decline from December’s strong reading suggests the industry was not greatly hampered by an increase in Social Security taxes that reduced takehome pay for most Americans. The report measures growth in industries that cover 90 percent of the work force, including retail, construction, health care and financial services.

SUCCESS Kathleen Caldwell Then itemize your shortcomings, weaknesses and, yes, your failures in the liabilities column. You will see not only the areas where your power assets turned into successful actions and positive results but also where your liabilities short-circuited your career and your business.

Bridge is full of suit combinations that can be played in different ways, depending on the number of tricks needed or the circumstances in a particular deal. Taken in isolation, how should South handle today’s heart suit for either five tricks or four? And in the full deal, how should South play in six hearts after West leads the diamond queen? In the auction, North’s three-heart rebid was game-forcing. South’s three spades was a control-bid (cue-bid) indicating a maximum, the spade ace and slam interest if North had a sufficiently strong hand. Four clubs and four diamonds were also controlbids, showing the aces of those suits. To play the heart suit without loss, declarer should cash dummy’s king before finessing his jack. If South can afford one loser, he should cash his ace, play low to dummy’s king, and lead back toward his jack. (This would be the right play in six hearts if West had led a spade, not a diamond.) In this deal, though, if

South loses an early trump trick, the opponents will cash two diamond winners. The best line of play is to take the heart king and ace immediately. Here, the queen drops and declarer can claim an overtrick. But if the queen remains elusive, South plays on clubs, hoping to discard both of his diamond losers. If hearts are 3-2, declarer needs the defender with the queen to have at least three clubs. If hearts are 4-1 without giving South two unavoidable losers, the key defender must hold at least four clubs.
