Commitment for expansion renewed Questions surround addition to DeKalb library

By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Despite their concerns about fundraising, DeKalb aldermen renewed their commitment to the library’s planned expansion. Still unknown is whether the city would be on the hook for the library borrowing $6 million from local banks. The library needs to have $15.5 million in the bank by June 30 so it can use an $8.5 million grant from the state to build a 47,000-square-foot addition to the library.

Library Director Dee Coover said she will have more information about the private loan by March 25. She currently is talking with Castle Bank, National Bank & Trust and Resource Bank. “We’re moving as expeditiously as we can, but the banks have to do due diligence and so do we,” Coover said. Library officials plan to borrow the $6 million because they don’t believe they can raise that money

F

through private donations by June 30. Instead, the fundraising campaign would go to paying off the loan over a certain period of time. Coover described the situation as fluid. How long the library has to pay back the loan, what the interest rate would be, and whether the city – as the library’s corporate authority – would be held liable if the library cannot pay the loan has not been set, Coover said. “What’s set in stone is the need,”

Coover said. “The need is there. We have the opportunity to use $8.5 million which to everyone’s best guess is a one-time deal.” Library officials already have petitioned the city council to borrow $7.5 million to contribute to the project. With the city chipping in another $1 million in tax increment financing and the library paying $1 million in its own reserves, DeKalb Mayor Kris Povlsen said reaffirmed his support.

“I think for us to have an opportunity to bring in a $24 million project for only $9 million is phenomenal,” Povlsen said. Other DeKalb aldermen expressed similar sentiments, although they all said they want to know if the city’s finances could be affected by the library’s borrowing. “We need to see those things,” said David Jacobson, 1st Ward alderman and a mayoral candidate. “It’s the $6 million question – how, where are we going to pay for that? I have some worries that it’s going to fall on the taxpayers.”

By the numbers

89 – percent which general state aid payments are prorated. 1.3 million – the dollar amount DeKalb School District 428 lost in funding this year. 572,000 – the dollar amount GenoaKingston District 424 lost in funding this year. 693,170 – the dollar amount Sycamore District 427 lost in funding this year.

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Who’ll be the first to feel the sting? Jobless Americans who have been out of work for a long time and local governments that are paying off loans to fix roads and schools are in tough spots when it comes to the automatic federal budget cuts that are scheduled to kick in Friday. About 2 million long-term unemployed people could see checks now averaging $300 a week reduced by about $30. There also could be reductions in federal payments that subsidize clean energy, school construction and state and local John Boehner public works projects. Low-income Americans seeking heating assistance or housing or other aid might encounter longer waits. Government employees could get furlough notices as early as next week, though cuts in their work hours won’t occur until April. The timing of the “sequester” spending cuts has real consequences for Americans, but it also has a political ramifications. How quickly and fiercely the public feels the cuts could determine whether President Barack Obama and lawmakers seek to replace them with a different deficit reduction plan. Eager to put pressure on Republican lawmakers to accept his blend of targeted cuts and tax increases Obama has been highlighting the impact of the automatic cuts in grim terms. He did it again Monday, declaring the threat of the cuts is already harming the national economy.

General state aid is a formula for education funding that takes into account local wealth and student attendance. In Illinois, most state funding for education goes into general state aid, said Mary Fergus, spokeswoman for the Illinois State Board of Education. The state board administers public education in the state. With the money allocated to them by the Illinois General Assembly, the officials at the state board makes two monthly payments to school districts. Proration occurs when the legislature does not allocate enough money to public education, Fergus said.

DeKalb County schools hit by state budget woes By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com Local school districts are used to receiving only 89 percent of the money state officials promised them, but they are expecting to receive less in the future. With general state aid payments prorated at 89 percent, DeKalb School District 428 lost $1.3 million in funding this year, said Andrea Gorla, the district’s assistant superintendent for finance and business. The district’s total anticipated revenues for its education fund, which is its main operating fund, is $62.3 million. “That hits us extremely hard,” Gorla said. The district loses $140,000 for each additional percentage point in proration, Gorla

“When there’s not enough money to fund the claims, the claims have to be prorated. That’s our course of action. ... As the cuts have gotten bigger, we’ve had to spread it out over time.” Mary Fergus spokeswoman for the Illinois State Board of Education

said. With proration expected to occur next year between 80 and 85 percent, that could mean a loss of anywhere between $560,000 and $1.2 million in revenue for DeKalb District 428.

Other school districts are facing similar situations. Genoa-Kingston District 424, which is expected to receive $13.9 million in total education fund revenues this year, lost $572,000 in general state aid, said Brad Shortridge, the district’s assistant superintendent. Sycamore District 427, which expected $37 million this year in education fund revenues, lost $693,170 with payments prorated at 89 percent, said district accountant Nicole Stuckert. General state aid is a formula for education funding that takes into account local wealth and student attendance. In Illinois, most state funding for education goes into general state aid, said Mary Fergus, spokeswoman for the Illinois State Board of Education.

Report: Ill. unpaid bills to hit $22B by ’18 By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – Illinois’ backlog of unpaid bills will reach nearly $22 billion within five years if lawmakers don’t take action to fix the state’s worst-inthe-nation pension crisis, according to an analysis released Monday by a Chicago-based watchdog group. The report from the Civic Federation notes some improvement since last year, when it was forecasting a $35 billion backlog in overdue bills. The improved outlook is largely because of $1.6 billion in Medicaid cuts Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law last year. But the overall financial picture remains dire, with annual payments toward Illinois’ $97 billion unfunded pension liability threatening to “swamp all of state government,” Civic Federation President Laurence Msall said. This year, the state’s annual pension payment is about $5.1 billion, or roughly 22.1 percent of the state’s general fund. The payment will grow to $7 billion – or nearly 31 percent of all general funds – by 2018 without pension reform, the analysis found. That would mean even less money would be available for the state to pay its bills. Currently, the backlog is $7.8 billion. An increase to $21.7 billion by 2018 could mean health care providers, nursing homes and other vendors would be waiting more than a year to be paid, Msall said. That raises the question of whether they would be able to keep their doors open or continue to provide services such as health care for state employees and retirees. “No one knows if the state will be able to continue to operate under that scenario,” Msall said. The report comes about a week before Quinn is scheduled to present his budget for the next fiscal year. Projections issued by his budget office last month showed the growing pension costs would result in a cut of about $400

Gov. Pat Quinn makes a point in his State of the State address to a joint session of the General Assembly on Feb. 6 at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. Ill. million for education. It also projected cuts for public safety and economic development. The Chicago Democrat has said pension reform is his top priority – a refrain echoed by other top lawmakers. But legislators remain unable to agree on how to fix the problem. Proposals have included raising the age at which public employees may retire, reducing annual increases for retirees and asking employees to contribute more. Some lawmakers also say the cost for teacher pension funds should be shifted to local school districts – a proposal Republicans fear could lead to property tax increases. Msall said Monday they should be working to “immediately” address the issue. The report also recommends the state expand eligibility for Medicaid

in order to receive additional federal funds available through the Affordable Care Act; continue Quinn’s long-term plan to move the developmentally disabled from institutions and into community-based settings and “aggressively pursue” cuts in state funding of retiree health care insurance premiums. Abdon Pallasch, Quinn’s assistant budget director, said the administration welcomes the Civic Federation’s report. “Last year, they supported our successful rescue and overhaul of the Medicaid program, which led to a better outlook for our budget from the Civic Federation this year,” Pallasch said. “The Civic Federation continues to support our efforts to reform the state’s public pension systems, which will stabilize the state’s finances.”

8BRIEFS Mom freed after conviction overturned CHICAGO – A Chicago woman whose conviction in the death of her 4-year-old son was overturned walked out of prison Monday, eight years after she was locked up for what she always insisted was a tragic accident. Nicole Harris walked into the reception area of Dwight Correctional Center and into the arms of her other son, now 13, who has long said that his mother did not strangle his little brother. The boy has said his brother died after an elastic band for a plastic bed sheet became wrapped around his neck, but he wasn’t allowed to testify at his mother’s trial. “I just held him and I just did not let him go,” the 31-year-old mother said in a telephone

interview on her way back to Chicago, just minutes after her reunion with her son, then added with a chuckle: “I think he’s sick of me already.” Harris’s release came four months after the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned her conviction. The court ruled that the trial judge wrongfully prevented her older son, Diante Dancy, who was 6 years old at the time, from testifying that his brother’s death was an accident. Defense attorneys said he was the only witness to 4-year-old Jaquair’s death.

British cardinal will skip upcoming papal conclave VATICAN CITY – In a season of startling change for the Catholic Church, the latest break with tradition was as unexpected

as it was a wake-up call to the 115 men who will elect the next pope. Britain’s highest-ranking Catholic leader resigned and removed himself Monday from the upcoming conclave, saying he did not want allegations that he engaged in improper conduct with priests to be a distraction during the solemn process of choosing the next leader of the church’s 1.2 billion-member flock. It was the first time a cardinal has recused himself from a conclave because of personal scandal, according to Vatican historians. The Vatican insisted that Pope Benedict XVI accepted Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s resignation purely because O’Brien was nearing the retirement age of 75 – not because of the accusations.

But O’Brien himself issued a statement Monday saying he would skip the conclave because he wanted to avoid becoming the focus of media attention at such a delicate time.

U.S. stopping use of term ‘Negro’ for census WASHINGTON – After more than a century, the Census Bureau is dropping its use of the word “Negro” to describe black Americans in surveys. Instead of the term that came into use during the Jim Crow era of racial segregation, census forms will use the more modern labels “black” or “AfricanAmerican.” The change will take effect next year when the Census Bureau distributes its annual American Community Survey

to more than 3.5 million U.S. households, Nicholas Jones, chief of the bureau’s racial statistics branch, said in an interview. He pointed to months of public feedback and census research that concluded few black Americans still identify with being Negro and many view the term as “offensive and outdated.” “This is a reflection of changing times, changing vocabularies and changing understandings of what race means in this country,” said Matthew Snipp, a sociology professor at Stanford University, who writes frequently on race and ethnicity. “For younger African-Americans, the term ‘Negro’ harkens back to the era when African-Americans were second-class citizens in this country.” –Wire reports

Cuts possible for D-427 By STEPHANIE HICKMAN shickman@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Decreased enrollment combined with unknown state and grant revenue may cause Sycamore School District 427 to cut up to seven positions within the district next school year.

DeKalb’s Enharmonic Fusion hopes for wild card ticket to New York By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com DEKALB – DeKalb High School’s a cappella singers in Enharmonic Fusion is not ready to give up on their New York dream. After falling short in Saturday’s national semifinal competition at DeKalb High School Auditorium, the ensemble plans to submit a video to judges this week in hopes of receiving the lone wild card spot to April’s national championship in New York. The group, which finished third Saturday, will need to beat out about 18 other groups for the wild card entry and must submit its video by Fri-

Erikson said the group had won best choreography, best arrangement and best vocal percussionist in the past but never best soloist. He said Conley’s performance was one of many bright spots for the group Saturday. “It’s really hard to judge art, you never know what’s going to happen,” Erikson said. “You just have to remember the reason you do it is because you love music, love performing and love working together.”

Meanwhile, the district’s challenge lies within operating on a smaller budget. “We will be looking at the budget items that match our district goals, what the goals are next year for curriculum and instruction, and the dollars we need to accomplish those goals,” she said.

Schools prepared for weather cancellations By DAILY CHRONICLE news@daily-chronicle.com DeKALB – Jim Briscoe said families and students should curb their excitement about a potentialsnowdaytodaydespite forecasts predicting a half foot of snowfall starting early in the morning.

Briscoe, superintendent of DeKalb School District 428, said the most recent snowstorms have fallen short of predictions and today’s snowfall could be less than expected. He said he would make a final decision on any school closures between 5:15 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. “It’s really hard to predict

... we need to wait to see if the weather actually occurs,” Briscoe said. “It could be sunny and 35 degrees.” The National Weather Service is predicting up to 6 inches of snow throughout northern Illinois, including DeKalb, Rockford, Belvidere and Aurora. The watch was issued about 4:30 a.m.

Monday. The service expects ice will accumulate south of the Kankakee River, with snow piling up from northwest of Peoria to Chicago, according to the hazardous weather outlook. Blowing and drifting snow is expected throughout the evening. Kathy Countryman, superin-

tendent of Sycamore School District 427, said if the snow comes, she would collaborate with the director of operations as well as the other districts to determine whether to cancel classes. District 427 will notify students and parents of closures via phone and email blasts, as well as an announcement on the

district’s website between 6 and 7 a.m. District 428 families can be notified of any closure through an automatic phone message through the district’s Skylert program. Briscoe said parents can update their contact information for the program through the district’s website.

Proration forces school districts to cut costs • PINCH Continued from page A1 The state board administers public education in the state. With the money allocated to them by the Illinois General Assembly, the officials at the state board makes two monthly payments to school districts. Proration occurs when the legislature does not allocate enough money to public education, Fergus said. “When there’s not enough money to fund the claims, the claims have to be prorated,” Fergus said. “That’s our course of action. ... As the cuts have gotten bigger, we’ve had to spread it out over time.” The proration has forced school districts around the state to look at ways to cut down costs. So far, the county’s biggest districts have not made cuts that directly affect students or student-based programs because of the state funding issue. DeKalb District 428’s recent cuts have been on the administration side. For instance, DeKalb used to have four assistant superintendents, Gorla said. Now they have two. They’ve also tied salaries to the consumer

price index, or inflation, and they try to control costs related to union contracts. In Sycamore School District 427, they’ve cut operating expenses and funds for supplies and equipment, Stuckert said. In GenoaKingston District 424, they’ve made reductions in administration like transportation and food services, but they’ve exhausted the “low-hanging fruit,” Shortridge said. “It’s not our expenses and expenditures. We’ve reduced those in the millions over the last five years,” Shortridge said. “The cuts we make in expenditures are being equaled in the reduction of revenue.” Revenue from the state starts in the Illinois General Assembly. State Rep. Robert Pritchard, R-Hinckley, said the state pays for things like pensions and debt pay-offs before the remaining revenue is divided among education

and other services. “The House passes a law that we’ll spend certain types of programs first. ... Last year, it consumed half of the revenue,” Pritchard said. “This year, it’s going to consume more than half of the revenue.” The ranking Republican in the House’s appropriations committee for education, Pritchard said there was a simple reason education payments have been prorated: “We’re broke.” “The chickens have come home to roost,” Pritchard said. “That’s why we have less money to spend for all of the services.” Even though the state is projected to bring in an additional $700 million to $1 billion in revenue, all of that will be swallowed by the increase in pension payments the state has to make, Pritchard said. Pritchard said school superintendents need to talk back when the state presents them with unfunded mandates – new rules for schools that the state does not assist with financially. “We need a pushback to the overreach of government,” Pritchard said.

Boehner suggests Obama agree to GOP’s recommended spending cuts • BUDGET Continued from page A1 Republicans say he is exaggerating and point to rates of spending, even after the cuts, that would be higher than in 2008 when adjusted for inflation. All Obama has to do to avoid the damage, House Speaker John Boehner said at the Capitol, is agree to the GOP’s recommended spending cuts – with no tax increases. By all accounts, most of the pain of the $85 billion in spending reductions to this year’s federal budget would be slow in coming. The dire consequences that Obama officials say Americans will encounter – from airport delays and weakened borders to reduced parks programs and shuttered meatpacking plants – would unfold over time as furloughs kick in and agencies begin to adjust to their spending reductions. “These impacts will not all be felt on day one,” Obama acknowledged in a meeting with governors at the White House on Monday. “But rest assured the uncertainty is already having an effect.” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned that the federal government would be unable to “maintain the same level of security at all places around the country” once the automatic cuts began to take effect. The public will feel the results “in the next few weeks,” she said, and “it will keep grow-

ing.” The majority of the federal budget is in fact walled off from the cuts. Social Security and veterans’ programs are exempt, and cuts to Medicare are generally limited to a 2 percent, $10 billion reduction in payments to hospitals and doctors. Most programs that help the poor, like Medicaid, food stamps, subsidized school lunches, Pell Grants and supplemental security income payments are also exempt. Still, the Pentagon will feel the brunt of half the cuts. Pay for active military is off-limits for cuts, so the rest of the defense budget must absorb the hit. The Obama administration says defense contractors have already ramped down work, contributing to a dip in economic activity in the fourth quarter of last year. The Navy has decided not to deploy an aircraft carrier as planned to the Persian Gulf. Elsewhere, the White House’s budget office says long-term unemployed Americans would lose an average of more than $400 in benefits over the year. The cuts do not affect state unemployment benefits, which jobless workers typically get soon after their loss of work. The federal reductions could begin immediately, though some analysts say the government could delay them for a short period to avoid a harmful hit on the economy. Bill Hoagland, a former top Republican Senate budget aide and now senior vice president

at the Bipartisan Policy Center, a Washington think tank, said the administration must be “betwixt and between” when it comes to addressing reductions in programs like jobless aid. “They want to make sure the American public knows this sequester is a bad thing, but they also don’t want to disrupt the economy too much,” he said. “It’s not that the reductions won’t take place. But they could delay the impact of that until later in the year.” Administration officials also say the Treasury Department is prepared to begin reducing subsidies that cover interest payments by state and local governments on public works, school and renewable energy projects. That means those governments will have to find money in their budgets to make up the difference in bond interest payments, and while that might not affect projects already under way, it could delay new construction efforts. Many federal programs, like heating aid for the poor, already have many more people seeking assistance than the program budgets can cover. Funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, for instance, has fluctuated greatly in recent years, with the administration proposing to cut it by 13 percent this year. In such cases, it may be impossible for people denied aid to know whether it’s because of the sequester since they might have been denied help anyway.

Jensen family celebrates 70 years in business By DAVID THOMAS

Know more

dthomas@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Machine production has been in Dan Jensen’s family for a long time. When he was in seventh grade, he built his first go-kart at his dad’s machine shop in Sycamore. Now the owner of Jensen and Son, which was started by his greatgrandfather, Jensen is celebrating 70 years in business. It’s a family business in every sense of the word. Helping Jensen out with running the business is his son, Dan Jensen, his daughter, Nicole, and his wife, Toni. Both Dan Jensens – customers refer to them as either senior or junior – grew up around family businesses. “I came down as a kid,” said the younger Dan Jensen, to which his dad quickly added, “Same as me.” “I basically grew up down here,” continued Jensen “Junior.” “I worked summers down here when I was younger. It seemed like something I

Jensen and Son Address: 353 N. Maple St., Sycamore Phone: 815-895-3855 Email: cncjensen@aol.com wanted to get into. It looked fun.” The older Jensen explained how the family runs the business. “We have employed anywhere from six to 12 in two shifts,” he said. “At this point, just the four of us have been pretty successful in keeping five machining centers running. It certainly helps keeping the cost down.” Jensen said they used to specialize in plastic injection molds, making the plug heads for cords people plug into the walls. But when the mold business started to move overseas, Jensen said they had to diversify. Jensen said they started using computerized numerical control – big machines that automatically

create parts for production machining. Jensen’s business has six of them. “We program offline,” Jensen said. “We bring up our geometry, we write our cutter paths, it goes onto a three-and-a-half inch floppy. The floppy goes into the machine, and we set the machine up with the right tools. And when the machine shuts off, you have the part you need.” Jensen said it has been a good year for his business, characterizing the past 18 months as really good. “They always say machine shops, small machines shops ... is the first barometer that shows that things are changing in the economy,” Jensen said. “And despite our [Obama] administration, things are still getting better.” The future of small manufacturing companies lies in whether they can keep up with technology, which he has done, he said. “Because we’ve been in business for so long, we have a good foundation,” Jensen said.

Nicole Jensen watches her brother Dan as she operates a computerized numerical control machine. Both siblings work with their parents at Jensen & Son in Sycamore, which is celebrating its 70th year in business.

Get involved, be part of the solution With every community, as people focus on making changes to improve something, there tends to be many ideas on what should be done and how to accomplish the best end result. Our community is no different. A couple of topics of recent conversation include the next phase of improvements in downtown DeKalb and the election of a new mayor. Most, if not all of you, have thoughts and opinions on these topics. Whatever you do, be sure that you are part of the discussions to provide your thoughts and ideas. Feedback is always a good thing to help decide on the best solutions and to be better educated on the topics. Earlier this month, a summit was held to discuss ideas for suggested improvements in downtown DeKalb. The summit was followed by a DeKalb Chamber of Commerce After Hours at Edu-

CHAMBER VIEW Matt Duffy ardo’s Restaurant. The city of DeKalb and Re:New DeKalb were both part of the process led by SAA Design Group. The idea behind these events was to gather as many ideas and as much feedback as possible from key stakeholders and others with ideas to help decide what should happen next to make downtown DeKalb better. If you weren’t able to attend and have not shared your ideas, be sure to contact someone from one of these organizations. Take advantage of this opportunity and bring your thoughtout ideas and not complaints. Being constructive is the key to being heard. As the April election approaches, there are a number of races that will be on the bal-

lot. With Mayor Kris Povlsen not running for re-election, the mayoral race is one that seems to be at the top of the list of those discussed. When it comes to any election, there are two pieces of sound advice given. First, be sure to be educated on the issues and the candidates. Don’t simply rely on secondhand information. Second, be sure to vote. This is one of the greatest rights we have and yet voter turnout does not seem support that at elections. The DeKalb Chamber will host a Candidates Night on March 7, at the Egyptian Theatre beginning at 5:30 p.m. with a meet-and-greet of all the races affecting DeKalb. Questions are being accepted in advance for the candidates so if you would like to submit a question, please email it to matt.duffy@dekalb.org by this Friday. Whether the topic is one of those mentioned here or

any other, be sure to participate by sharing your thoughts and ideas in a constructive way so that you’re part of the solution. For information on any upcoming events, be sure to visit www. dekalb.org.

New applia ce i sta tly cuts your food bills up to 50% a d gives you much better tasti g food Cuts your time i the kitche up to 80% Provides much more utritious food a d food that ca make you lose weight fast By John Wh tehead, Med a Serv ces

The Chef Jon Molnar Company has announced the ultimate kitchen appliance. It is the MacroWAVE® produced by EdenPURE®. The MacroWAVE® cuts your food bills by up to 50%. ou don’t have to know how to cook. It gives you food that tastes like a 5-star restaurant without you being there. It also can make you lose weight fast. If that isn’t enough, it also cuts your time in the kitchen up to 80%. It provides food that is much more nutritious than food cooked with conventional cooking appliances. The operation of the MacroWAVE ® is the ultimate in simplicity. There is no operation. There are no knobs, no buttons, and nothing to program. Ultra high-tech computer chips detect the type of food you put in including its density, moisture, and other factors and cooks it to perfection. It also keeps food perfectly warm, moist, juicy and delicious for up to 12 hours. Even in the 12th hour, the food tastes exactly as it tasted when it was finished cooking. The MacroWAVE ® is also the ultimate warmer. If you have food that has already been cooked, or leftovers, or food in doggy bags from restaurants, it will warm them to the ideal temperature and keep them moist, juicy and tasty for up to 12 hours. For more information on the remarkable MacroWAVE ® here is my exclusive interview with Chef Jon Molnar. Q: How does the MacroWAVE® save up to 50% o food bills? A: It saves money on food in many ways. First, Government studies show that 25% of food is wasted because people prepare more than is needed. Then the leftovers do not taste as good as the food originally cooked so, they are thrown away. T h e M a c r o W AV E ® keeps food at a perfect temperature and as juicy and as moist as when i t was finished cooking. Therefore, you can go back and eat the food for up to 12 hours. If you have leftovers after you cook food for the first time, you can put them back in the MacroWAVE® and you will bring them back up to the ideal temperature and perfect status. S e c o n d l y, y o u c a n make food in large volumes and then portion it out into meals and freeze it. The MacroWAVE ® will then take the frozen meals and bring them up to perfect temperature and original cooking quality. This allows you to buy food in large containers or bulk which saves you a lot of money. Third, you can take the

frozen food, put it in the MacroWAVE® in the morning. Children can eat it when they come home from school or children at home can eat it all day long. When a mother gets home from work, most of the time they go to a fast food drive through and pick up food because they do not have time to cook. This food costs around 3 times as much as homemade food. Four th, you can buy cheaper grades of meat like flank steak and the MacroWAVE ® will cook them to be tender and t a s t e l i ke t h e h i g h e s t priced cuts of meat. Besides saving money, all the above cuts your time in the kitchen up to 80%. Q. What makes the MacroWAVE® so u ique a d differe t from all co ve tio al cooki g or warmi g kitche applia ces? A. The MacroWAVE ® works and operates entirely different. Each of the 4 shelves is a SMART Shelf that is programmed to control heating by CONDUCTION, not combustion. It’s the safest and most efficient way to cook and heat any food perfectly. It senses the food’s mass and cooks that food perfectly. There is no need to set any temperature or timers whatsoever. It LIMITS the heating temperature to a perfect 165 degrees which kills bacteria and holds it at 165 degrees perfectly until the food is completely cooked. When the food is done, the indicator light on the shelf turns from blue to red. It’s that simple.

Q. Why is usi g the MacroWAVE ® able to make people much healthier a d make people lose weight fast without hu ger? A. It keeps food hot, without removing moisture and the LIFE giving nutrients unlike a microwave.

Coolidge gets new deal in revisionist history For years, most Americans’ vision of history has been shaped by the New Deal historians. Writing soon after Franklin Roosevelt’s death, Arthur Schlesinger Jr. and others celebrated his accomplishments and denigrated his opponents. They were gifted writers, and many of their books were bestsellers. And they have persuaded many Americans – Barack Obama definitely included – that progress means an ever bigger government. In their view, the prosperous 1920s were a binge of mindless frivolity. The Depression of the 1930s was the inevitable hangover, for which FDR administered the cure. That’s one way to see it. But there are others, and no one is doing a better job of making a counter argument than Amity Shlaes, whose 2008 book “The Forgotten Man” painted a different picture of the 1930s. Shlaes agrees that Roosevelt’s initial policies seemed to end the downward deflationary spiral. But then bigger government, higher taxes and aggressive regulation led to further recession and years of achingly slow growth. Sound familiar? Now Shlaes has produced a book tersely titled “Coolidge.” It shows the 30th president

VIEWS Michael Barone in a far different light than the antique reactionary depicted by the New Deal historians. Calvin Coolidge began his political career during the Progressive era, a time of expanding government. But he came to national notice when that era was ending in turmoil. At home, it was a time of unemployment and inflation, of bombs set off before the attorney general’s house and on Wall Street, of labor union strikes in coal and other basic industries. Coolidge was governor of Massachusetts and in charge of the Boston police when they went on strike in September 1919. Coolidge fired the striking policemen. He explained why in a telegram to labor leader Samuel Gompers. It concluded, “There is no right to strike against the public safety by anybody, anywhere, anytime.” “The time for disruption was over; in

order for the next day to be better,” Shlaes writes, “law must be allowed to reign now.” Coolidge became a national celebrity. The Republican bosses in the smoke-filled room picked someone else to be Warren Harding’s running mate. But the convention delegates stampeded and nominated Coolidge. Coolidge’s Republicans had small majorities in Congress, and many favored big new spending programs – veterans’ bonuses, farm subsidies. Coolidge said no, with vetoes that were sustained. More recent economic historians have suggested that policy mistakes by the Federal Reserve were the prime cause of the deflationary downward spiral. Shlaes doesn’t argue that Coolidge’s policies could or should be replicated today. But she does establish that the 30th president is worthy of more respect than previous historians have accorded him.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., offered a trenchant comment the other day about the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December, which was carried out by Adam Lanza with a semiautomatic assault weapon that reloaded bullets in rapid succession from a single ammunition magazine. Twenty children and six adults were killed in a deadly few minutes of fire. “We do know that historically in these instances, amateurs have trouble switching magazines,” the senator said, according to the New York Times. “I believe, and many of the parents there believe, that if Lanza had to switch cartridges nine times versus two times there would likely still be little boys and girls alive in Newtown today.” The same might also be said for other mass shootings such as the one that wounded former U.S. For the record Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson and the one at These semiautomatic an Aurora, Colo., movie assault weapons are theater. primarily versions of guns These semiautomatic created for soldiers in war assault weapons are zones and have no place in primarily versions of guns civilian hands. created for soldiers in war zones and have no place in civilian hands. The highcapacity ammunition magazine is functionally the most important feature of semiautomatic assault weapons, including some assault pistols, allowing a shooter to rapidly fire up to 30 times without reloading. If Congress decides to legislate a limit on such magazines, say, 10 bullets, it could save lives. The 10-round limit was included in the 1994 assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004. Taking stock of that law, a report for the National Institute of Justice noted that studies have shown that attacks with semiautomatic weapons “result in more shots fired, more persons hit, and more wounds inflicted per victim than do attacks with other firearms.” There is already a huge stock of these weapons and ammunition clips in civilian hands, but Congress could at least staunch the manufacture and purchase of new ones. A limit on high-capacity magazines draws more support in recent public opinion polls than does a ban on assault weapons. Senators who have resisted gun control legislation out of concern for political fallout have been hinting that they may support limits on ammunition clips. One of them, Mark R. Warner, D-Va., has stated that, despite his “A” rating from the National Rifle Association, he is ready to depart from the status quo in response to Sandy Hook. The senator could do so by speaking up for a limit on large-capacity ammunition clips. No one who owns guns for hunting, target practice or personal self-defense needs to have a 30-bullet magazine, as Vice President Joe Biden rather inartfully stated in an online chat last week. Biden said that civilians don’t need a semiautomatic assault rifle of the AR-15 type – like that used by Lanza – to protect themselves. “It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself,” the vice president declared. “Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.” We’re not offering any such shopping tips, but we do think that Congress should act for the whole nation and put these high-capacity clips beyond reach. The Washington Post

Engine plant mirrors U.S. auto industry Over the past six years, Ford’s Engine Plant No. 1 in Brook Park has held a mirror to the health of the domestic auto industry. In 2007, with Ford hemorrhaging cash, company executives announced they were “temporarily” closing the factory while the company worked through its inventory of engines. The shutdown lasted almost two years while Ford put itself through a painful restructuring and re-imagining of its product lines and strategy – and the entire American auto sector suffered a near-death experience. Last week, Joe Hinrichs, president of Ford’s American operations and the man who brought bad news to Brook Park six years ago, was back to announce that the company was bringing work from Europe to suburban Cleveland. Engine Plant No. 1, which reopened in 2009 with a single shift, will soon add 450 employees to the 1,065 working there now. The number could grow even more because the plant will be making the 2-liter EcoBoost engine, a fuel-efficient model the revitalized company deems absolutely critical to future competitiveness. In a very different era, Ford employed 16,000 in its Brook Park complex. Those days are long gone. But the rebirth of Engine Plant No. 1 – thanks in no small measure to the sacrifices of its United Auto Workers members – is evidence that American manufacturing can compete and succeed in the global marketplace.

Te’o finally gets chance to focus on football INDIANAPOLIS – Manti Te’o’s first appearance on a football field since the BCS championship game didn’t go as well as planned Monday. The Notre Dame star and Heisman Trophy runner-up was clocked at 4.82 seconds in the 40-yard dash. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock had said Sunday anything faster than 4.7 would be “phenomenal.” Anything 4.8 or over would be a “concern.” The workout came more than a month after Te’o’s highly publicized online romance with a girlfriend was exposed as a hoax and that he was a victim of the hoax. Since then, he’s done a handful of 1-on-1 interviews and took questions Saturday in one of the craziest scenes in NFL scouting combine history. Reporters crowded around the podium, lining up eight deep to hear Te’o talk one more time about what happened. Some have wondered if the embarrassing story was a distraction leading into the national championship game, in which Te’o and his Notre Dame teammates played poorly in a blowout loss to Alabama. The linebacker said Saturday the hoax had no impact on that game. And he insists it has not affected his preparation for the combine, either. But instead of putting those concerns to rest with a good showing Monday, Te’o fell short of his goals again – and not just in the 40. – Wire report

But after a 51-30 loss to the host Rockets in a Class 3A Burlington Central Regional quarterfinal Monday, Mason Lucca

was left to reflect on a season of what-ifs. “I don’t really think we ever reached our full potential,” the senior said. “I wish I had another year, because we have a lot of potential on our team. We had glimpses of greatness as a team, and I felt like we never played to our highest capability. That would’ve been nice to see.” Early in the game, the Cogs were nothing like the team that took Burlington Central to overtime earlier this month, as shot

after shot clanked off the rim. Lucca’s field goal in the opening minutes was the only basket of the first quarter for the Cogs (16-11), and the Rockets led, 7-2. Adam Price hit a shot and freshman Tommy Lucca made two free throws and a 3-pointer midway through the second quarter to tie the score at nine, but the Rockets (14-13) closed out the half on a 10-0 run to take a commanding lead.

By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com ROCKFORD – DeKalb already was in a bad spot to start the fourth quarter, down seven points to Belvidere North. On top of that, Barbs point guard Rudy Lopez picked up his fourth foul a minute into the quarter, and big man Andre Harris was called for his fourth with six minutes left in the game. However, DeKalb responded in a big way. The Barbs scored 18 points in the final period on their way to a 55-52 win in a Class 4A Rockford East Regional quarterfinal. Leading the DeKalb comeback were the two players who looked like they might finish the game on the bench, Lopez (18 points) and Harris (16). Lopez, only a sophomore, played the entire fourth despite

By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com VERNON HILLS – State. Rep. Carol Sente insists she’s not trying to do away with football by introducing a bill that would limit how much high school players could hit one another in practice each week. But the majority of coaches, athletic administrators and parents who attended a public forum on the proposed legislation introduced by the Lincolnshire Democrat agree that governing high school sports shouldn’t be part of lawmakers’ duties. Instead, they suggested that rather than focusing a law on how high school football coaches go about their business, state legislators should trust those charged with not only getting teams ready to play each Friday night, but in protecting the teenagers who play for them. “The practice field is our classroom,” said Glenbrook North coach Bob Pieper, who was among a number of coaches who told Sente that House Bill 1205 would not allow them to teach in the manner they have been trained. IHSA executive director Marty Hickman tends to agree. Hickman was part of the panel for Monday night’s forum that included neurologist Dr. Larry Robbins, who was among those who pushed Sente to introduce the bill. Hickman said the IHSA has been “good citizens” when it comes to protecting the 50,000 high school football players competing in Illinois as well as educating coaches and parents. Hickman said after the 2 1⁄ 2-hour forum that was attended by about 75 people that he doesn’t think a state law would do anything more for the state’s prep players than the IHSA already is doing. “I think we’re doing good things,” Hickman said. “That’s really one of my concerns with this legislation is that this could be a step back. Obviously, we want to be part of the discussion, but we haven’t seen a need for legislation because we feel like we’ve been doing a good job.” Sente said her proposed bill wasn’t introduced as a suggestion that the state’s athletic governing body and high school coaches aren’t doing enough. But Sente suggested that having a law on the books would ensure that all of the

BLACKHAWKS 3, OILERS 2 (OT)

H-BR’s Burks, a vendor, has back turned to history CHICAGO – Greg Burks is a big fan of the Blackhawks. He comes to almost every game. Yet he misses almost every goal. “It’s the age-old thing that vendors will tell you,” Burks, 34, said with a smile Monday before the Hawks hosted the Edmonton Oilers. “We hear the roar of the crowd and we turn around, and if we’re lucky, we get to Next see the replay.” These are good days at St. Louis, 7 to sell cold beer for the p.m. Thursday, hottest team in sports. The Hawks extended CSN, AM-720 their season-opening point streak to 19 games Monday with a thrilling comeback against the Oilers to win, 3-2, in overtime. The Hawks improved to 16-0-3, which is the greatest start in NHL history, as you probably have heard six-dozen times by now. After every win, reporters crowd

VIEWS Tom Musick around Hawks players such as Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. If you ask me, vendors such as Burks are at least as interesting. By day, Burks coaches girls basketball and track at Hinckley-Big Rock High School. By night, drives to the city and sells beers at games for the Hawks, Bulls, Bears, Cubs and White Sox. It’s not uncommon for someone to see Burks in street clothes and to give him another look. It’s the kind of look that says, “You look familiar, but I don’t know why.” Maybe it’s because you bought a AP photo beer from him the last time you were at the stadium.

8SPORTS SHORTS Weiner says increasing drug penalties possible DUNEDIN, Fla. – Baseball union head Michael Weiner said Monday there have been talks about increasing the penalties for violating baseball’s drug testing program. “There are certainly some players who have expressed that,” Weiner said. “We’ve had discussions with the commissioner’s office. If it turns out that we have a different penalty structure because that’s what players are interested in, that’s what the owners are interested in, it will be for 2014.” Weiner spoke to the media after he met with the Toronto Blue Jays as part of his annual tour of spring training camps. “On one hand, we do have the toughest penalties of any team sport,” Weiner said. “Fifty games is more than you’d see for the first time in football and hockey and basketball. More and more players are vocal about the desire to have a clean game. More and more players are vocal about being willing to accept sacrifices in terms of testing in order to make sure we have a clean game.”

AP source: Tom Brady gets 3-year extension Tom Brady will be a Patriot until he is 40 years old. Brady agreed to a three-year contract extension with New England on Monday, a person familiar with the contract told The Associated Press. The extension is worth about $27 million and will free up nearly $15 million in salary cap room for the team, which has several younger players it needs to re-sign or negotiate new deals with. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the extension has not been announced.

Sharks’ Clowe suspended 2 games for starting fight NEW YORK – San Jose Sharks forward Ryan Clowe has been suspended two games without pay by the NHL for instigating a fight late in Friday night’s 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks. The suspension was announced Monday by the league’s Department of Player Safety. Clowe was assessed a minor penalty for roughing and a game misconduct for leaving the bench on an illegal line change to start a fight with Hawks forward Andrew Shaw with 8.4 seconds left in regulation – an infraction that calls for a 10game suspension. But upon further review the line change was deemed legal. Clowe then skated directly at Shaw, who was not engaged with any other player, grabbed him and wrestled him to the ice.

BLACKHAWKS 3, OILERS 2 (OT)

NBA

Hawks’ streak now at 19 By JAY COHEN The Associated Press CHICAGO –Marian Hossa scored 1:44 into overtime and the Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers, 3-2, on Monday night to stretch their NHL-record opening points streak to 19 games. Patrick Sharp set up the winning goal with a quick turn along the boards and a drive to the goal that led to two stops by Nikolai Khabibulin. Hossa picked up the second rebound and was again stuffed by Khabibulin before he poked it in for his ninth goal of the season. Patrick Kane and Viktor Stalberg also scored for the Hawks (16-0-3), which has won six straight and nine of 10. Ray Emery made 17 saves to remain unbeaten in eight starts this season. Nail Yakupov and Jeff Petry had the goals for Edmonton, which carried a 2-1

lead into the third period but couldn’t hold on for its fourth consecutive victory over the Hawks. Khabibulin had 31 stops in the opener of the Oilers’ franchise-record, nine-game road trip. Edmonton grabbed the lead in the second, taking advantage when Brandon Saad was sent off for high sticking. Yakupov, the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, one-timed a pass from Sam Gagner into the right side of the net at 14:17 for his fourth power-play goal and sixth overall. The Hawks looked listless for much of the second, but rebounded quickly in the third. Michal Rozsival was behind the net when he sent a pass in front to Stalberg, who poked the puck into the mouth of goal as Khabibulin went to his knees to try for the stop. The call on the ice was no goal, but replays showed the puck crossed the line before Khabibulin could make the play

and Stalberg was awarded his fifth goal of the season after a short review. The pace picked up after the tying goal, and each team had a couple of solid chances to move in front. Yakupov shot off the post on one power-play opportunity, and Khabibulin stopped Hossa on a short-handed chance. Edmonton moved in front in the first period after Duncan Keith lost his footing and coughed up the puck deep in the Hawks’ end. Lennart Petrell picked it up and skated in all alone on Emery, who stopped his backhand attempt. The rebound went out to Petry, who sent it over the prone goalie at 4:28. Just over a minute later, Kane skated to the middle of the ice and beat Khabibulin with a slick backhander for his 10th goal of the season. It was his first goal since Feb. 10 at Nashville, ending a six-game drought.

Dontrelle Willis pitches against the Dodgers in the eighth inning of a spring training game Monday in Glendale, Ariz. The Cubs lost, 7-6

DODGERS 7, CUBS 6

Willis leaves after 7 pitches Hurts shoulder in loss, calls is a ‘mild setback

Next vs. Colorado, 2:05 p.m. today

The ASSOCIATED PRESS GLENDALE, Ariz. – The latest comeback try by Dontrelle Willis lasted only seven pitches. Still trying find a flash of his former self, Willis said he hurt his left shoulder Monday in the Cubs’ 7-6 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 2003 NL Rookie of the Year and two-time AllStar walked Nick Evans on six pitches in the eighth inning. After throwing ball one to Brian Barden, Willis grabbed his shoulder. Cubs coaches and trainers visited Willis on the mound and escorted him to the dugout. “It’s a mild setback,” said Willis, who signed a minor league contract with the

Cubs in January. “Hopefully, it’s not serious. It’s probably just fatigue.” Willis got a loss to go along with the setback. Evans scored the go-ahead run when Willis’ replacement, Jensen Lewis, gave up an RBI single to Omar Luna. T h e 3 1 - y e a r - o l d W i llis burst upon the baseball scene in 2003 as a high-kicking, hard-throwing pitcher with the Marlins. He helped them win the World Series that year and was a 22-game winner in 2005. Willis never has come close to duplicating that early success. He pitched in the majors and minors for five organizations after leaving the Marlins and announced his retirement on July 2, 2012.

Six months later, the Cubs then signed him. But manager Dale Sveum said the team didn’t have any lofty expectations. “We don’t have any plans,” Sveum said. “He’s here to be a backup. He’s a minor league player.” The Dodgers won after trailing by four runs after three innings. The Cubs scored six times off Chad Billingsley and Chris Capuano. Billingsley gave up four straight hits to begin the game, including a leadoff double by Luis Valbuena and a home run to Nate Schierholtz. In the third, Darnell McDonald hit a three-run homer off Capuano and Welington Castillo followed with a home run. Note: The Cubs face the Colorado Rockies today. The Cubs’ scheduled starter is RHP Edwin Jackson, 10-11 with Washington last season.

WHITE SOX 9, GIANTS 9

Konerko has pair of hits in tie By RICK EYMER The Associated Press SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Madison Bumgarner is no fan of the twist, a minor flaw in his windup that eventually got worse before it started getting better. Bumgarner threw two scoreless innings in his first outing since the second game of the World Series, postseason hero Marco Scutaro had two hits and drove in a run and the San Francisco Giants played the White Sox to a 9-9 tie Monday. Paul Konerko had two hits for the Sox, who played to a tie for the second straight day. Hector Santiago allowed three runs on five hits in his two innings. Bumgarner walked one, struck out one and allowed two hits in an outing he deemed the first step to continued adjustments. “I didn’t plan it,” Bumgarner said of his motion. “I just started twisting around

until I looked like Hideo Nomo.” Santiago, who was impressive during four starts in September and October, said he’s not taking anything for granted. “I came to spring training fighting for a job,” Hector Santiago Santiago said. “I’m like everybody else here. Nothing is guaranteed to me.” Even should there be no room in the starting rotation, Santiago feels comfortable in whatever role he will be assigned. “I’m pretty wide,” he said. “I can adjust to anything.”

He entered the game just wanting to throw strikes and get ahead of hitters. He walked one and struck out one. “I threw all my pitches and it felt like I threw everything where I wanted,” said Santiago, who was 2-0 with a 1.86 ERA in four starts last year. Joaquin Arias, Brett Pill and Cole Gillespie each drove in two runs as the Giants took a 9-0 lead after three innings. The Sox got two back in the sixth and tied the score with a seven-run eighth, highlighted by Seth Loman’s three-run homer. Notes: Sox RHP Nestor Molina is scheduled to start today against the Rangers. He appeared briefly with Triple-A Charlotte, starting one game. ... Sox LHP Donnie Veal slipped while catching a popped bunt and was in pain afterward. He was removed from the game and walked off under his own power.

Few, if any, cities are as passionate about their professional sports teams as Chicago. However, to Burks, the Hawks’ fan base stands out as the best of the best. The team’s terrific start has put everyone in a good mood, but it’s not the only reason fans are spending money. Even if the team were .500, Burks said, sales would be good and tips would be generous. “Blackhawks fans are second to none in this city,” Burks said. “And that’s not to short Bears fans, Cubs fans, Sox fans, Bulls fans. But the Hawks fans are a very loyal breed, shall we say.” Loyal breed. That’s a good way to put it. For many years, the barn was mostly empty whenever the Hawks took the ice. When Burks started selling beer at the United Center in 2005, the Hawks were terrible. Home games weren’t shown on TV. The majority of seats were unoccupied. Not anymore. The Hawks’ crowd of 21,127 marked the 199th consecutive sellout for the franchise. “It’s unbelievable the transformation the franchise has made,” Burks said. “I remember selling to 8,000 people. You were happy on a night when the place was half-full. And now, you’re working every night to a standing-room-only crowd that’s really into the game.” It’s a fine line, though. Sometimes, Hawks fans are so into the game that they don’t buy as many beers. “It’s kind of funny,” Burks said. “I’d say some of the toughest sales we had was the year they won the Stanley Cup, [during] the Stanley Cup Final, because everybody was so enthralled with the game that they didn’t want you in their way in the seats. “But any time there’s more people on a nightly basis and more regular fans in the stadium, that benefits people like us that are working behind the scenes.” Clearly, sales are good. Burks won’t say exactly how good. “A good vendor will never disclose that information,” he said with a wink. Fair enough. Almost an hour before the opening faceoff, Burks lifted a black strap around his shoulders and carried a case of 24 beers – 18 Bud Lights and six Budweisers – to the concourse behind Section 324. For $7.50 apiece, he poured 16-ounce beers into clear plastic cups. Robin Hachmeister of Carol Stream stopped to buy a Budweiser on his way to his seat. I wondered whether Hachmeister was more likely to buy a beer from Burks because the Hawks were playing so well. He and his buddy laughed and shook their heads. “We always buy beers,” Hachmeister said. “It makes no difference to us.” Hey, when in Rome. Or, I guess in this case, when in Rink. At this rate, a deep playoff run is likely for the Hawks. That would mean more games at the United Center, which is especially helpful to workers such as Burks who lost out on income during the recent NHL lockout. Burks thinks that the Hawks can chase another Stanley Cup title. But so much hinges on good health, and luck plays a factor, so there’s really no telling how the season will end. If so, Burks will be here, rooting on the Hawks. Hopefully, he’ll turn around in time to see the replays.

DeKalb’s Justin Love battles Belvidere North’s Todd Berknpas for a rebound during the second quarter of a Class 4A Rockford East Regional quarterfinal Monday night at Rockford East High School. The Barbs won, 55-52.

Barbs to meet top-seeded Rockford Jefferson • barbS Continued from page B1 Rohlman’s confidence in Lopez never wavered, and he watched the sophomore drop nine points in the fourth. Lopez knocked down four big free throws in the final minute of the game, including two front ends of one-and-one situations. Rohlman doesn’t really look at his point guard as a sophomore this late in the year. “He was the general of the offense tonight and he did what he was sup-

posed to do,” Rohlman said. “I’m not surprised. We’ve seen it coming. The last month or so he’s played like that most of the time. I’m just happy for him, that he got the opportunity to knock down those free throws.” Harris gave Belvidere North (821) a tough time in the post as the Barbs (8-22) made an emphasis to get the ball inside. He played disciplined with the four fouls, and scored five points in the final period despite sitting out about 21⁄2 minutes. “Harris was was really big. He was really big tonight,” Lopez said.

MEN’S BASKETBALL: AP TOP 25 POLL

Indiana remains No. 1 By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS The Associated Press

NCAA BASKETBALL AP TOP 25 POLL

SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga has been in 14 NCAA tournaments, five of which ended with an appearance in the Round of 16. But no Gonzaga team ever before has been ranked No. 2 in The Associated Press’ Top 25, as the Zags were Monday. Indiana remained No. 1 for the fourth straight week. Meanwhile, the little school from Spokane with the funny name moved up one spot to its highest ranking ever, surpassing the No. 3 position it enjoyed last week and for the final two weeks of 2003-04. “It’s a special thing to be recognized at this time of year,” guard Mike Hart said. “We’ve got 30 games under our belt. That says a lot. It’s not just a few games.” That sentiment was echoed by coach Mark Few. “The polls mean a lot more this time of year than they do in November, December, even January,” Few said. “All of us are being judged on the true body of work. It’s definitely rewarding. “It establishes us as a national program, which I believe we have been for the last 10 years. This group has done a great job of competing at that level, winning games at the highest level.” While the West Coast Bulldogs made some news at the top of the poll Monday, Louisiana Tech, the Bulldogs from Down South, moved into the rankings for the first time since a 13-week run in 1984-85, their only appearance in the poll.

“On the boards, and scoring inside.” Justin Love added eight points for DeKalb, with Michael Pollack finishing with five in reserve roles. The Barbs will take on top-seeded Rockford Jefferson in the semifinals at 7:30 p.m. today. “They’re very quick,” Rohlman said of the J-Hawks. “I just think that we have to adjust to their quickness. ... They’re going to bring some pressure, obviously, and we’re going to have to be able to handle the basketball with the pressure [tonight].”

Dayton 500 winning driver Jimmie Johnson (left) and crew chief Chad Knaus show off their rings Sunday at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. It was important to Johnson to win a Daytona 500 with crew chief Chad Knaus there.

Knaus finally gets a Daytona 500 win DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – As Jimmie Johnson racked up win after win, championship after championship, he always was chasing one important victory. Johnson already had one Daytona 500 victory on his resumé. But he needed one more. He needed it for Chad Knaus, the crew chief who has been with Johnson since the start of their ride into the record books. Knaus wasn’t there the day Johnson won his first 500; he had been suspended by NASCAR for a technical violation found the week before the race was deemed to be deliberate. So Darian Grubb, still a Hendrick Motorsports employee at the time, called the 2006 Daytona victory in Knaus’ place. Ever since, Johnson has wanted to win another so Knaus would have a chance to celebrate winning “The Great American Race.” The time came Sunday when Johnson won his second Daytona 500, forcing the intensely private Knaus to admit just how badly he wanted the win with his No. 48 team. “As you guys know, I eat, sleep and breathe 48,” Knaus said. “Anytime that I’m taken away from that race car, I’m pretty sad. But when those guys were able to come down here and win the Daytona 500 in 2006 in my absence, I think that really solidified the strength of the 48 car. Was I here? No. Was I here in spirit? Most definitely. I couldn’t have been prouder of the group of guys we had there. “But to finally be able to come down here and win, and be a part of this is definitely a huge dream come true.” It was a moment Knaus has been working toward his entire life. He has sacrificed plenty in his personal life to get here. With no wife and no kids, he’s not kidding when he says he devotes most of his time to Hendrick Motorsports and building championship race cars. He is not satisfied with what he and Johnson have accomplished since they were paired before Johnson’s 2002 rookie season – and that includes five Sprint Cup championships. No amount of wins or titles has so

IN THE PITS Jenna Fryer far satisfied Knaus. It’s been two years since Johnson’s last title, and he went down to the wire with Brad Keselowski last season before bad breaks in the final two races gave Keselowski his first championship. So Knaus was relentless – of course – during offseason preparations. And he devoted a considerable amount of time to the Daytona 500, the first race for NASCAR’s new Gen-6 car. “I know we worked at least 35 days straight on the car that we raced in the Daytona 500,” Knaus said. “I know I put in personally one day of 38 hours straight. I actually sent Jimmie a text, saying, ‘I’ve seen 6:48 three times today and haven’t been to bed yet.’ ” Knaus believes that drive is the difference between the No. 48 team and the competition. “I think what we have above everybody else is the desire to go out and win races,” he said. “We’ve got 500 plus employees at Hendrick Motorsports. When they all want to go out and win races, you put guys like [Johnson] behind the seat, you’re going to see magic happen.” This Daytona 500 win comes at a time of change for Knaus, who is trying as hard as he can to have a life away from racing. He got engaged in December to longtime girlfriend Lisa Rockelmann, who understands when he doesn’t come home for 38 consecutive hours. Team owner Rick Hendrick said he believes Knaus is in a far better place now than he was in 2006, and the balance Knaus has added to his life might not be enough for everyone, but it’s working for the crew chief. “You can’t be 100 percent and live in the shop and work on the car and if you don’t win, you can’t live with yourself,” Hendrick said. “He’s learned to have other pieces in his life.”

3-pointer with 2:12 remaining to put the Rockets back up by 20, and the Cogs didn’t have an answer. G-K showed glimpses of the team it could be, but after the game, coach Corey Jenkins once again was left to reflect on what-ifs. “I liked our shots. I think if some of them dropped, the dynamics of the game change,” Jenkins said. “We just didn’t hit shots. It’s the game of basketball. You’re going to have nights like that. It’s just unfortunate that it happened in the playoffs.”

Sente: Language in bill will change with more opinion • FOOTbaLL Continued from page B1 state’s member schools are operating the same way. Sente reiterated that the language currently included in the bill would change once she has collected more opinion. Sente said she will hold a second public forum in Springfield on Wednesday when she’ll again seek input on whether a bill should go forward. During Monday night’s forum, she asked coaches whether bump-

ing the tackling limitations up to two days a week from one - as is included in the current form of the bill - would serve as an adequate compromise. Coaches weren’t convinced. Instead, they pointed to the fact that they already limit how much hitting they allow in practice as to preserve their players from serious head injuries such as concussions. But Robbins, who will appear at Wednesday’s forum along with Hickman, said the attention being paid to concussions at the NFL level continues to overshadow the issue

of repeated blows to the head. Robbins, one of two doctors on the panel, cited studies that suggested that youngsters who begin playing football at age 6 or 7 are likely to sustain anywhere from 2,000-4,000 moderate blows to the head by the time they are 18. That number, he said, is much more concerning than players whose head injuries reach the level of concussions during their careers. “The effects of these sub-concussive, lower-than-concussion hits are more than anyone realizes,” Robbins said.

Challenge Update

The second-place finish turned around what had been a lackluster Speedweeks for Earnhardt, whose famous father died during a final-lap crash at the Daytona 500 in 2001. Junior qualified 19th for the race, his lowest starting spot in 14 years at the Daytona 500. His confidence remained high, though, possibly because he was glad to be rid of the clunky Car of Tomorrow and the tricky tandem racing that came with it at repaved Daytona. So it was no huge surprise to see him near the front late in the race.

Earnhardt Junior finishes 2nd after late charge at Daytona AP Sports Writer MARK LONG (AP)

But instead of taking risks and pulling out of line in hopes of taking the lead, he simply waited for the right opportunity to make a move. It came during the final 2½ miles. And with help from Martin. Their crews agreed to team up on a late restart with six laps to go in the 200-lap race. They swerved under Patrick and sped past Greg Biffle, but couldn’t get by Johnson. “Obviously I knew Junior had a fast car and is one of the masters here, certainly would trust his judgment,” Martin said. “If things would have got crazy enough, maybe we could have got the big trophy.” They settled for the podium. “I think it’s important to get a good start points-wise,” Earnhardt said. “It’s important to put a good foundation of points together. If you get behind early, it seems like you’re still chasing that Chase spot at Richmond.” Earnhardt made the Chase for the championship last year, but finished 12th after missing two of the final six races because of post-concussion symptoms. Nonetheless, running in the top five in points most of the season and spending a few weeks atop the standings provided a big boost for an ultra-popular driver trying to win his first Cup championship.

“We’re a good team,” he said. “Hopefully we can keep the pressure on them and stay up in the top five in the points and win some races. I want to really try to win some more races this year. That’s our focus.” The redesigned car could be the key to making it happen. Earnhardt managed just two wins over the last six years in the previous car.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Dale Earnhardt Jr. sat on the podium between Mark Martin and Danica Patrick.

Of course, it could be weeks, maybe months, before Earnhardt knows how his No. 88 Chevrolet will stack up in 2013. Eventually, though, he would like to drive it back to Victory Lane at the Daytona 500.

He was right in the middle, for sure, but far from center stage at Daytona — again. Earnhardt used a last-lap charge Sunday to finish second in the Daytona 500 for the third time in the last four years, another runner-up performance that left NASCAR’s most popular driver clamoring to get back to Victory Lane at one of auto racing’s showcase events.

He hated the racing at Daytona in recent years, first complaining loudly that the track needed to be repaved and then really hating the resulting tandem racing after it was resurfaced in 2010. Now, though?

“It’s like a drug, I assume,” said Earnhardt, who also finished second in 2010 and 2012. “It’s such a high. You just don’t know when you’ll ever get that opportunity again or if you’ll ever get that opportunity again. I knew before I won in 2004, I was reserved to the idea I may be trying to win this race my entire career because I knew all too well how that was for my father.” Jimmie Johnson held off Earnhardt to win the Daytona 500 for the second time. Martin was third, a solid showing for a part-time driver. Patrick was eighth, the highest finish for a woman in 55 years of NASCAR’s premier event. She also became the first woman to lead laps in “The Great American Race.” Earnhardt sat between them during post-race interviews, listening to Martin talk about his relationship with 50 Cent and hearing Patrick answer countless questions about making history as a female driver.

“I liked it,” he said. “I think that the package is really good. The surface is still relatively new, which provides tons of grip. If we had the old surface with this car, it would have been an incredible race, people sliding around, wearing tires out, just trying to dig as hard as they could. We’ll get to that as the track ages. I’d hate to see them messing with the car to get a better package because the track is in good shape. “It’s down here next to the beach. It will wear out and age quite rapidly compared to some other tracks that have been repaved. As the track changes, the tire will ultimately change and be able to wear and you’ll see guys moving around, different things happening.” Maybe Earnhardt even will end up taking center stage.

Earnhardt’s run was just another oh-so-close finish at Daytona, where his family name is forever linked because of triumph and tragedy. “I felt so much relief when I did win it,” Earnhardt said. “I’m ready to do it again. It’s been too long. Running second over and over is great and all for our team, a good start to the season. Even having to go through all the hassle that Jimmie is about to go through this week, it’s worth it.”

ADVICE & PUZZLES

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Husband’s micromanagement wears thin Dear Abby: “Harold” and I have been married for more than 20 years and have three children ranging in age from teen to toddler. We are both college graduates and held middle-management jobs until recently. Two years ago, Harold was offered a temporary job in an exotic location in another country. We jumped at the chance. I can’t work due to the regulations here, but the money is good. Now that I’m not working, Harold suddenly believes he has the right to tell me what to do, how to manage daily activities, how to care for the children, etc. When we explore our host country, he loses his temper if I take a photo of something he has already photographed. At Halloween, we invited

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips some local friends over to share the American tradition of pumpkin carving. He literally took the knife out of my hand and shouldered me out of the way so he could do it. In previous years, he had no interest in this activity – the children and I carved the pumpkins. These are just two examples, but the scrutiny is daily and relentless. I am instructed how to do the laundry, wash dishes, clean the stove, on and on. How do I deal with this new controlling behavior? If I address it when it happens,

he becomes nasty. I have tried discussing his overall change in attitude, but he says I am “imagining” it. If I ignore his “suggestions,” it results in angry outbursts. I don’t know how to get through to him that I’m the same competent individual I was before we made this change and that I do not need micromanaging. Any advice is welcome. – Just About Had It Dear Just About Had It: Your husband may be stressed in his new job and no longer feel in control, which is why he is attempting to control you. Or, because he is now the sole wage earner, he may feel “entitled” to dictate your every move. If you are now living in a male-dominated culture where women have no rights, his thinking may

be influenced by the men around him. If marriage counseling is available, I urge you to get some. If that’s not possible, perhaps a long vacation for you and the children with your family would defuse the tension. Dear Abby: My son recently committed suicide. He was only 24. Two weeks before his death, he confided to a family member that he had been molested by his uncle when he was between the ages of 4 and 7. I want this uncle to be exposed, but the family wants to keep it “quiet and in the family.” I am very much of the opinion that this molestation could be behind my son’s suicide. The uncle is now in his 30s and would have been in his teens when this hap-

pened. Please tell me what I should do. – Suffering in Ohio Dear Suffering: Because you are suffering, it is important that you talk with a therapist if you haven’t already. While early trauma may have played a part in your son’s death, suicide is a complex act that is not completely understood. What IS clear is that what this uncle did while in his teens was predatory. Others in the family – and the community – should be made aware so their children can be protected, because they may be at risk. The therapist can help you decide how to deal with this, so please don’t wait.

Avoid ‘the bends’ with diving precautions Dear Dr. K: I’m planning a diving vacation. A friend told me it’s not safe to fly within 24 hours of diving. Why not? Dear Reader: I’m not a diver myself, so I had to do some research to answer your question. The concern with flying soon after diving (or rising too quickly to the surface of the water after a deep dive) is something called decompression sickness. It’s also known as “the bends.” When you scuba dive, you breathe compressed air from a tank. That air contains high amounts of two gases, oxygen and nitrogen – higher than are normally in the air around us. The deeper you dive, the more pressure you’re under. That causes the nitrogen to

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff stop being a gas; it dissolves into your blood, becoming a liquid, where it remains during your dive. Your body slowly eliminates the nitrogen, primarily in your urine. As you swim back toward the surface after a deep dive, the water pressure around you decreases. If this transition occurs too quickly, the liquid nitrogen forms bubbles in your tissues or blood that can damage the walls of blood vessels. These bubbles also can block normal blood flow in the same way that little

blood clots can. Decompression sickness can cause a variety of symptoms: joint pain, dizziness, headache, difficulty thinking clearly, extreme fatigue, weakness in the arms or legs, or rash. The symptoms you get depend on the organs in which blood flow is blocked. It can take a while for the symptoms of decompression sickness to appear. You can get back up to the surface of the water without symptoms, but then experience them for up to 24 hours thereafter. If you experience any of the symptoms of decompression sickness after scuba diving, get to a doctor as soon as you can. The key to treatment is the use of a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. This is a

high-pressure chamber that provides 100 percent oxygen. The treatment drives nitrogen back into its liquid form so that it can be cleared from the body gradually, over a period of hours. Hyperbaric treatment is most successful if given within several hours after symptoms start. To minimize your risk of decompression sickness while diving: • Dive and rise slowly in the water, and don’t stay at your deepest depth longer than recommended. Scuba divers typically use dive tables that show how long they can remain at a given depth. • Don’t drink alcohol before diving. Alcohol makes the brain more vulnerable

to injury by the nitrogen bubbles. • Avoid hot tubs, saunas or hot baths after diving. You asked about not flying. As a plane climbs higher, the surrounding air pressure gets progressively lower. Although the plane keeps cabin pressure higher than the real air pressure outside the plane, the cabin pressure still is lower than the air pressure on the ground. That encourages any remaining liquid nitrogen in your blood to form bubbles and cause decompression sickness. For that reason, you should wait 24 to 48 hours after diving before flying.

Man regrets starting beer drinking at age 12 Dr. Wallace: I’m addressing my letter to every young person who has started, or is tempted, to consume alcohol. Alcohol companies do a very superb job of convincing you to try their products. Then they end their ads by telling you not to drive after drinking and that consuming alcohol is not intended for those underage. That’s all a con job. Alcohol companies make money when they sell you their products. Alcohol almost ruined my life. I hope I can convince more than a few young adults that alcohol can be a one-way street to self-destruction. My parents drank alcohol regularly but never to the extent of being “bombed.” It was the

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace cocktails before dinner and the after-dinner drink. On the weekends, it was a few beers while watching athletic events. Even when I was very young, I had the impression that alcohol was good, and the only reason they didn’t give any to me was that it was too expensive. When I was 12, I convinced my best friend that we should try alcohol. His dad was a big beer drinker, and his refrigerator was always loaded with his favorite brew. I can’t tell you the number of beers

TODAY – A number of restrictions that have hampered your progress in the past are likely to be gradually lessened or, in some cases, even totally removed in the year ahead. This will bring success within your grasp. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – You’re likely to function far more effectively when you can operate independently. Sadly, you could be more of a hindrance in situations where teamwork is required. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Usually, you don’t blab things that should be kept to yourself, but today you might not be able to help telling on someone whom you really dislike. Try not to take the low road. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – There are days when socializing can be a negative experience, and it could be one of those times. If you find this happening to you, make a quick exit. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Your peers could find your motives suspicious, so if you think this to be true, make certain everything you do is above reproach. If you try anything funny, you’ll be caught. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Even if you feel like sounding off to someone who really deserves it, it would be best that you don’t. Hold your tongue and count to 10 or even 20, if that’s what it takes to subdue your anger. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – If you find yourself involved in a financial transaction that requires a lot of paperwork, don’t get lazy and take things for granted. Read the fine print, down to the very last comma. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Friends will tolerate a bit of restlessness on your part, but not to the point of changing group plans. Be thoughtful about your behavior. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – When conversing with others, speak well of friends who aren’t present, or say nothing at all. Any comments you make will be repeated and even distorted to those being spoken about. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – To expedite certain tasks or assignments, you might be tempted to take a few shortcuts. Unfortunately, this might only cause more work for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – It’ll reflect poorly on your image if you try to take credit for something that you had only a small part in producing. Don’t let your ego put you in an embarrassing position. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Don’t overreact if another’s point of view is diametrically opposed to yours. Remember, everyone is entitled to express his or her opinion. Show them some respect. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – When left to your own devices, you’re pretty good at figuring things out. Complications could enter the picture, however, with comments by an unsolicited adviser.

(hundreds) we drank, but his dad never realized it. By age 15, I “advanced” to hard liquor because beer didn’t provide me with an ultimate high. I found that my parents’ whisky did. I started with taking a little from an already-opened bottle and then finally getting money to buy my own. Believe it or not, I was buying whisky at age 15 from a “friendly” owner of a liquor store. By age 16, I quit school because I needed a job to provide money to buy the “hard” stuff. By the time I celebrated my 18th birthday I was a fullblown alcoholic. One episode of drinking caused me to go into a coma. I didn’t wake up for two

8SUDOKU

days. I guess you can call this my lucky break because after I was released from the hospital, I checked into the alcoholic unit of a psychiatric hospital. I was fortunate that my parents had insurance that allowed me to get the necessary treatment I needed. I now am a recovering alcoholic and have not had a drink of alcohol in over seven months, and I’ve gotten my life back in order. I’m fortunate to have a decent paying job so that I can pay for my car and expenses. Alcohol wasted five years of my life. It’s going to take me a few years to catch up, but believe me, I will. Teens, it’s NOT cool to drink booze! If you are tempted

to start drinking, don’t start. If you do, you could travel my path before you stop. It just isn’t worth it. – Nameless, Sacramento, Calif. Nameless: Thanks for sharing your story with our teen readers. Alcohol abuse is America’s No. 1 drug problem among youth. According to the National Council on Alcoholism, an estimated 4.6 million teens, ages 14 to 18, have experienced negative consequences of alcohol use including arrest, involvement in an accident, impairment of health or poor school performance. The use of alcohol has no positives!

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Another visit to suit preference The best improvement in bridge in the last 20 years is the employment of “useless” cards to send suit-preference signals. Without this style of defense, West would have to guess what to do in this deal. With suit preference, it is easy. How should the play and defense go in four spades after West leads the diamond king? South has four losers: three hearts and one diamond. (West cannot have the ace and king of hearts, because his opening lead would have been the heart ace, not the diamond king.) But South has 10 potential tricks: five spades, two diamonds and three clubs. His best play is to take the first trick and immediately to lead back his diamond jack. To defeat the contract, West must win with his queen and shift to a heart. But how will he know that is right instead of a club switch? At trick one, East plays his diamond two, discouraging. But on the second round, he can play the seven or four. Wanting a heart shift, he drops the seven, the higher card asking for the higherranking of the other two side suits. Now West knows exactly what to do. If you have only low trumps, you can also use those to send suit-preference signals. In this deal, if South immediately draws trumps, East can play eight-six-three-two, always the highest calling for a heart. The snag with these signals is that you and your partner have to watch the cards very carefully. But if you do, you will defeat more contracts.

The successful candidate will also understand and embrace the idea that newspapers are part of the 24hour news cycle. Ideal candidates will be willing to take on a broad range of assignments, from spot news and government meeting coverage to features, and must tell stories that show readers how the events and people are relevant to their lives. Our reporters are expected to generate their own story ideas and develop sources on their beat, as well as take assignments from the news editor. At least one year of professional experience preferred, but recent graduates with outstanding internship experience are encouraged to apply.
