Algonquin lends hands

Village contracts employees to other municipalities, taxing bodies By JOSEPH BUSTOS ALGONQUIN – Once a week, Kevin Crook – an Algonquin information systems employee – is at the Huntley Police Department working on the squad car computers and servers. Crook has a good understanding of how Huntley works with the county’s communications system. When

needed, he also works on municipal operations. Crook is one of Algonquin’s employees who has been contracted out to other taxing bodies. Since fiscal 2011, the village has had employees working in different municipalities or doing maintenance for other taxing bodies. When the Great Recession hit, local governments had to figure out how to do things

more efficiently. “It made sense for taxpayers,” said Mike Kumbera, Algonquin assistant to the village manager. “It brings in extra revenue and offsets having the expense of staff on hand. “It’s definitely a way to get through the recession.” So far in fiscal 2013, the village has brought in $173,200 from other taxing bodies by providing services through in-

tergovernmental agreements. In 2011, the village brought in $58,600 through the intergovernmental agreements; in 2012, it brought in $156,100. The village has intergovernmental agreements with Huntley to provide information systems assistance, building inspections and plan review services. Algonquin provides fleet

SPRINGFIELD – Drivers would not be allowed to use their cellphones while on the road under a measure the Illinois House endorsed Friday. The measure would force drivers to use handsfree devices or a speakerphone feature for calls while motoring. A 64-46 vote sent the legislation to the Senate. Such a law could prevent accidents and fatalities by keeping drivers focused on the road, supporters said. “A hand-held cellphone is a huge distraction while driving a car,” said Rep. John D’Amico, a Chicago Democrat. D’Amico said 76 Illinois communities – including Chicago – already ban chatting and driving. Police would be able to ticket drivers holding a cellphone under the proposed legislation, which makes an exception for motorists during an emergency. Opponents said the bill is unfair to people with hearing problems and those who can’t afford high-tech gadgets such as earpieces or telecommunications systems built into automobiles.

NO PAPER TRAIL IN CITY HIRING The city never advertised, gathered applications or conducted formal interviews for a Public Works Department opening filled last month by former Alderman Darrell Perkins. Perkins, who submitted a letter of resignation from his seat as 4th Ward alderman in early February, was hired about two weeks ago to work in the department, Mayor Jay Nolan said.

One small step for a Hello Kitty doll Space. It used to be called “The Final Frontier.” Evidently now, if you have a weather balloon, space seems to have become just another fun Saturday afternoon. Recently, a 13-year-old girl launched a balloon with the payload of a Hello Kitty doll more than 90,000 feet into space as part of her seventh-grade science project. My junior high science project paled in comparison: I brought in my guinea pig named Ham and showed how I trained it to squeak at the sound of crunching lettuce. I got a C-. The teacher said it lacked “scientific design and methodology,” but I think I got graded down because Ham thought his finger was a leafy green. But back to the idea of launching things into space. It would appear that ordinary people have been using weather balloons to launch all kinds of things into the stratosphere. Here’s a list of some of the stuff that has ballooned into the heavens: • A plate of sushi • A movie prop of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber • A Lego Man • Home plate from the New York Mets stadium


JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava • A Twinkie Oh, a balloon also launched Lance Armstrong’s Tour de France yellow jersey into space, but it was disqualified for using performance-enhancing gases. (The balloon vehemently denied it.) Be that as it may, I got to thinking: How does one go about launching something into space? Well, there are several sites on the Internet that offer all the equipment you will need. One company offers an “Altitude Balloon Package” for $1,495. This includes not only the balloon, but also a GPS tracking device, a 1080p HD camera, a parachute, and even a waterproof recovery note. The helium is not included, but they recommend buying a canister of it from Party City. Party City? Whoever thought that Party City would be connected with spaceflight? I could hear NASA now: “Apollo 11, this is Houston Control. We got a 50 percent off coupon from

Party City. You guys need any streamers or napkins or paper cups?” “Roger, Houston, that would be a go for the streamers. Neil wants to know if they have something that has SpiderMan on it.” “Roger that, Apollo. We’ll take care of that. Stand by for lunar landing sequence.” “Um, Houston, one more thing. Buzz was wondering if we could get some Bozo the Clown plates as well.” “Ten-four on the plates, Apollo. Now can we prepare for that lunar entry?” Needless to say, we eventually did land on the moon. There was no mention of party favors, but that’s the stuff conspiracy theories are made of. Now, on to the topic at hand. Let’s say you have all the equipment you need for a launch. The next question is: What do you want to send into space? I suppose everyone’s choice will be different. I have come up with my own list of special things to launch: • My Ernie Banks rookie baseball card. After spending his entire career with the Chicago Cubs without playing in a World Series, I figure he deserves

a lift. • My 45 rpm record of Steve Martin’s “King Tut.” I think space would be a nice change of scenery for a guy who was born in Arizona, moved to Babylonia, and got a condo made of stone-a. • A photo of me soaring through the air to make a spectacular catch at the Field of Dreams. That’s one small jump for a middle-aged man, one giant leap for Iowa. • My souvenir Mayan calendar. If it doesn’t return to earth, it’s not the end of the world. So now we are all just a weather balloon and a passively stabilized pultruded carbon fiber payload structure with built-in radar reflector away from infinity and beyond. Sure, the price may be steep, but man’s reach must exceed his grasp, or what’s a Hello Kitty for?

• Michael Penkava is a retired teacher who taught for 35 years at West Elementary School in Crystal Lake. He is currently preparing to be to the first person to launch Strawberry Shortcake into space. He can be reached at

By ALICIA A. CALDWELL The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The Homeland Security Department released from its jails more than 2,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation in recent weeks due to looming budget cuts and planned to release 3,000 more during March, The Associated Press has learned. The newly disclosed figures, cited in internal budget documents reviewed by the AP, are significantly higher than the “few hundred” illegal immigrants the Obama

administration acknowledged this week had been released under the budget-savings process. The government documents show that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement released roughly 1,000 illegal immigrants from its jails around the U.S. each week since at least Feb. 15. The agency’s field offices have reported more than 2,000 immigrants released before intense criticism this week led to a temporary shutdown of the plan, according to the documents. The states where immigrants were released include

Arizona, California, Georgia and Texas. The White House has said it was not consulted about the releases, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has acknowledged they occurred in a manner she regrets. White House spokesman Jay Carney on Wednesday said the government had released “a few hundred” of the roughly 30,000 illegal immigrants held in federal detention pending deportation proceedings. Carney said the immigrants released were “low-risk, noncriminal detainees,” and the decision was

AMBRIDGE, Pa. – Now this is a story all about how a high school student’s life got turned upside down. But it was all just a bad rap. The teen’s voicemail greeting triggered a lockdown at his Pennsylvania school after a receptionist misheard his rendition of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song. While trying to confirm an appointment with 19-year-old Travis Clawson the receptionist thought the message said “shooting people outside of the school.” The line is actually “shooting some b-ball,” a reference to basketball.

Gridlock: No budging at budget-cuts deadline By DAVID ESPO The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Gridlocked once more, President Barack Obama and Republican congressional leaders refused to budge in their budget standoff Friday as $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts bore down on individual Americans and the nation’s still-recovering economy. “None of this is necessary,” said the president after a sterile White House meeting that portended a long standoff. Obama formally enacted the reductions a few hours before the midnight deadline required by law. Yet their impact had been felt thousands of miles away well before then.

In Seattle, the King County Housing Authority announced it had stopped issuing housing vouchers under a federal program that benefits “elderly or disabled households, veterans, and families with children.” The president met with top lawmakers for less than an hour at the White House, then sought repeatedly to fix the blame on Republicans for the broad spending reductions and any damage that they inflict. “They’ve allowed these cuts to happen because they refuse to budge on closing a single wasteful loophole to help reduce the deficit,” he said, renewing his demand for a comprehensive deficitcutting deal that includes higher taxes.

Republicans said they wanted deficit cuts, too, but not tax increases. “The president got his tax hikes on Jan. 1,” House Speaker John Boehner told reporters, a reference to a $600 billion increase on higher wage earners that cleared Congress on the first day of the year. Now, he said after the meeting, it is time take on “the spending problem here in Washington.” Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky was equally emphatic. “ I will not be part of any back-room deal, and I will absolutely not agree to increase taxes,” he vowed in a written statement. At the same time they clashed, Obama and Republicans appeared determined to

contain their disagreement. Boehner said the House will pass legislation next week to extend routine funding for government agencies beyond the current March 27 expiration. “I’m hopeful that we won’t have to deal with the threat of a government shutdown while we’re dealing with the sequester at the same time,” he said, referring to the new cuts by their Washington-speak name. Obama said he, too, wanted to keep the two issues separate. Under the law, Obama had until midnight to formally order the cuts. Barring a quick deal in the next week or so to call them off, the impact eventually is likely to be felt in all reaches of the country.

The Pentagon will absorb half of the $85 billion required to be sliced between now and the end of the budget year on Sept 30, exposing civilian workers to furloughs and defense contractors to possible cancellations. Said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, only a few days on the job: “We will continue to ensure America’s security” despite the challenge posed by an “unnecessary budget crisis.” The administration also has warned of long lines at airports as security personnel are furloughed, of teacher layoffs in some classrooms and adverse impacts on maintenance at the nation’s parks. The announcement by the housing agency in Seattle was

an early indication of what is likely to hit as the cuts take effect. It said it was taking the action “to cope with the impending reduction in federal funding,” adding that it normally issues 45 to 50 vouchers per month. After days of dire warnings by administration officials, the president told reporters the effects of the cuts would be felt only gradually. “The longer these cuts remain in place, the greater the damage to our economy – a slow grind that will intensify with each passing day,” he said. Much of the budget savings will come through unpaid furloughs for government workers, and those won’t begin taking effect until next month.

he felt there was no way for his administration to avoid the case. “I felt it was important for us to articulate what I believe and what this administration stands for,” the president said. The administration’s brief outlined a broad legal argument that could ultimately be applied to other state prohibitions across the country, but stops short of the soaring rhetoric on marriage equality Obama expressed in his inaugural address in January. Still, it marks the first time a U.S. president has urged the high court to expand the right of gays and lesbians to wed.

Durbin frustrated with federal budget troubles The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin said Friday he’s as frustrated as most Americans with the repeated “doomsday scenario” involving the federal budget. Speaking in Chicago on the day that $85 billion in automatic spending cuts were to take effect, the Senate’s No. 2 Democratic leader blamed some House Republicans who aren’t willing to negotiate. “You fix it with an election,” Durbin said. “Unfortunately, at this point, there is control in the House of Representatives by a group that invites this. They like this approach. I think it’s a mistake.” Durbin’s remarks came at a press conference focusing on the impact of $1.6 billion in automatic spending cuts at the National Institute of Health, just one of the many agencies affected by the federal budget reduction. Illinois is the 10th largest recipient of NIH mon-

ey and could lose roughly $38 million, Durbin said. The cuts could lead to the loss of 727 jobs, he said. “We have lived the last two years and three months with this doomsday scenario recurring time after time: threatened government shutdowns, threatened economy shutdowns, threats on the fiscal cliff, threats on sequestration,” Durbin said. “This is no way to run a government and it’s no way to run a great nation.” Researchers from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, Lurie Children’s Hospital, University of Chicago and University of Illinois at Chicago joined Durbin in calling for a compromise that preserves funding for research. “There is no doubt in my mind that some of the cuts to medical research will have a direct impact on lives and the quality of life,” Durbin said. “We’re talking about cancer

research. We’re talking about treating diabetes. These are deadly diseases.” Illinois residents won’t wake up Monday and notice much change because of the spending cuts – known as sequestration – Durbin acknowledged, but he said aviation spending cuts to be announced soon may force “some downstate airports” to close. “People will finally say, ‘So that’s what sequestration is all about,’” Durbin said. Durbin’s staff later clarified that it’s not known whether any airports will close immediately. “We will know more when the FAA releases additional details next week,” said Durbin spokeswoman Christina Angarola in an email. “What we do know is that several air traffic control towers and other air traffic control facilities will close and downstate airport directors have told Sen. Durbin’s staff that safety will be impacted as a result.”

Autopsy of Ill. lottery winner reveals little about his death By MICHAEL TARM The Associated Press CHICAGO – An autopsy on the exhumed body of a Chicago lottery winner poisoned with cyanide yielded no significant new clues about his death, the Cook County medical examiner said Friday. No remaining cyanide was found in samples of Urooj Khan’s body tissue, likely because cyanide breaks down over time, and there was nothing notable from tests on his stomach contents, Stephen Cina told reporters. Cina did say Khan’s coronary arteries had significant blockage, which could have increased the effectiveness of the cyanide. But he said there was nothing to make him think a heart attack killed Khan, saying, “I don’t see how I can ignore

lethal cyanide level in the blood.” Authorities have not publicly identified anyone as a suspect in Khan’s July 20 death, which happened just days before the 46-year-old was to collect $425,000 in lottery winnings. Authorities initially ruled that the Indianborn businessman died of natural causes, but his brother Urooj Khan raised suspicions, leading authorities to test fluids drawn from Khan’s body before he was buried. Those tests showed he had been poisoned, and Khan’s body was exhumed in January so that authorities could perform the autopsy and gather more evidence in case prosecutors decide to file

charges. Although the autopsy didn’t reveal significant new information, Khan’s death is still considered a homicide because definitive tests on fluids drawn from his body before he was buried indicated he had been poisoned, Cina said. Khan moved to the U.S. from Hyderabad, India, in 1989, and over the years, he set up several dry-cleaning businesses and bought into some real-estate investments. Despite having foresworn gambling after making the haj pilgrimage to Mecca in 2010, Khan bought a lottery ticket in June. He said winning the lottery meant everything to him and that he planned to use his winnings to pay off mortgages, expand his business and donate to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Employment Security is closing seven offices across the state. The move will leave 192 people without jobs. But state officials say those employees will have the chance to fill open jobs elsewhere in state government. The Friday closures include offices in Centralia, DeKalb, East St. Louis, Galesburg, Jacksonville, Mattoon and Murphysboro. The department says the closures are due to federal budget reductions and falling unemployment insurance claims. The closures mean the department will have shuttered 15 offices over the last year and a half. That includes four Chicago offices and facilities in Freeport, Litchfield, Mount Vernon and Pekin.

Cook County cigarette tax going up $1 a pack CHICAGO – Taxes on cigarettes sold in Cook County are going up by one dollar a pack. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said the tax, which took effect Friday, is expected to generate more than $25 million annually for the Cook County Health and Hospitals System. She says higher taxes also will help lower smoking rates, including by discouraging people from starting. Cook County’s Department of Public Health will begin an anti-smoking campaign later this month aimed at youth. It will include television advertising and placards on buses and

S. California wildfire is 40 percent contained RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Southern California firefighters have made significant progress against remnants of a wildfire that damaged a home and cut power to about 2,000 residents in Riverside County. The blaze in the Santa Ana River bottom is 40 percent surrounded Friday. Better mapping of the scene has increased the size from 200 acres to 311 acres. The fire erupted late Thursday in heavy vegetation in the river bottom between Riverside and Jurupa Valley, and at its peak prompted a call for voluntary evacuations. Fire spokesman Greg Birchfield said flames died down overnight but there still are hotspots and there is concern about winds picking up.

Obama says no way to avoid gay marriage case WASHINGTON – Citing the principle of equality that drove the nation’s founding, President Barack Obama spoke out Friday against California’s ban on gay marriage and said the Supreme Court should strike it down. A day after his administration filed a friend-of-the-court brief unequivocally calling on the justices to strike down California’s Proposition 8 ballot measure, Obama said

State Dept.: No major objections to pipeline WASHINGTON – The State Department on Friday raised no major objections to the Keystone XL oil pipeline and said other options to get the oil from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries are worse for climate change. But the latest environmental review stops short of recommending whether the project should be approved. State Department approval of the 1,700-mile pipeline is needed because it crosses a U.S. border. The lengthy report says Canadian tar sands are likely to be developed, regardless of whether the U.S. approves Keystone XL, which would carry oil from western Canada to refineries in Texas. The pipeline would also travel through Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma.

Syrian rebel chief: Fighters desperate for weapons By ZEINA KARAM The Associated Press BEIRUT – The head of Syria’s rebels said Friday that the food and medical supplies the United States plans to give his fighters for the first time won’t bring them any closer to defeating President Bashar Assad’s forces in the country’s civil war. “We don’t want food and drink, and we don’t want bandages. When we’re wounded, we want to die. The only thing we want is weapons,” Gen. Salim Idris, chief of staff of the opposition’s Supreme Military Council, told The Associated Press by telephone.

The former brigadier in Assad’s army warned that the world’s failure to provide heavier arms is only prolonging the nearly 2-year-old uprising that has killed an estimated 70,000 people. In what was described as a significant policy shift, the Obama administration said Thursday it was giving an additional $60 million in assistance to Syria’s political opposition and said it would, for the first time, provide nonlethal aid directly to rebels battling to topple Assad. The move was announced by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry at an international conference on Syria

in Rome. In the coming days, several European nations are expected to take similar steps in working with the military wing of the opposition to increase pressure on Assad to step down and pave the way for a democratic transition. But the frustration expressed by Idris is shared by most of his colleagues in the Syrian opposition, as well as by scores of rebels fighting in Syria. They feel abandoned by the outside world while the Assad regime pounds them with artillery and bombs. The main rebel units, known together as the Free Syrian Army, regrouped in

December under a unified, Western-backed command headed by Idris and called the Supreme Military Council, following promises of more military assistance once a central council was in place. Despite those pledges, opposition members say very little has been delivered in terms of financial aid, and more importantly, in weapons and ammunition. The international community remains reluctant to send weapons, fearing they may fall into the hands of extremists increasingly gaining ground among the rebels. Mouaz al-Khatib, the leader of the Syrian opposition

coalition, has lamented the West’s focus on the presence of Islamic militants among the fighters. In a forceful speech Thursday to the Rome conference, he said the media reports give “more attention to the length of fighters’ beards than to the [regime’s] massacres.” Some Syrians expressed their disappointment on social media websites. One showed a photo of Kerry carrying a toy gun as a gift for the rebels. Another depicted a threewheeled cart, of the kind usually used by farmers, with the words: “The first of the nonlethal weapons has arrived.”

Idris, a 55-year-old who studied in Germany and taught electronics at a Syrian military college before defecting in July, said the modest package of aid – consisting of an undetermined amount of food rations and medical supplies – will not help them win against Assad’s forces who regularly use warplanes to pound rebel strongholds. “We need anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles to stop Bashar Assad’s criminal, murderous regime from annihilating the Syrian people,” he said. “The whole world knows what we need, and yet they watch as the Syrian people are slaughtered.”

Vatican takes 1st steps running a pope-less church By NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press VATICAN CITY – The Vatican took the first steps of governing a Catholic Church without a pope on Friday, making some ceremonial and practical moves to formalize the end of one pontificate and prepare for the conclave to start the next. Benedict XVI’s resignation Thursday opened what is known as the “sede vacante” or “vacant seat” – the transition period between papacies when a few key Vatican officials take charge of running the church. The dean of the College of Cardinals formally summoned his fellow “princes” of the church to Rome for an initial pre-conclave meeting Monday – something of a formality given that many of them are already here. But in a letter Friday, Cardinal Angelo Sodano also made clear that the conclave date won’t be set until they have all arrived, meaning it may still be some time before a date is settled on. Separately, the deputy to the camerlengo – who administers the Vatican during the transition – took symbolic possession of one of the papal basilicas in Rome. Here are the top figures who will run the church in the coming days:

THE CAMERLENGO: Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone. The camerlengo, or chamberlain, takes over the day-today running the Holy See as soon as the papacy ends. He places the seal on the pope’s study and bedroom, and takes possession of the Apostolic Palace, “safeguarding and administering the goods and temporal rights of the Holy See” until a new pope is elected. On Thursday night, Bertone sealed the papal apartment, which will not be reopened until a new pope is elected. Benedict in 2007 gave the camerlengo job to Bertone, 78, a natural choice, given that Bertone is currently the Vatican No. 2 as secretary of state and runs the Vatican bureaucracy anyway.

THE DEAN OF THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS: Cardinal Angelo Sodano. The dean is the senior member of the College of Cardinals, the so-called “princes” of the church whose main task is to elect a pope. The dean oversees the pre-conclave meetings, at which the problems of the church are discussed, and has duties inside the conclave itself, including asking the newly elected pontiff if he accepts the job. But Sodano is 85 and cannot vote, so some of those duties will shift to the subdean. Burly and sociable, the Italian Sodano was Pope John Paul II’s longtime secretary of state. As dean, he spoke on behalf of all the cardinals in giving a final farewell to Benedict on Thursday, thanking him for his “selfless service.”

THE MASTER OF LITURGICAL CEREMONIES: Monsignor Guido Marini. The master of liturgical ceremonies runs the religious side of the conclave and the installation Mass for the new pope, all of them carefully choreographed rituals. He is by the side of the dean when the newly elected pope is asked if he accepts the election. And as the main witness and notary, he draws up the formal document certifying the new pope’s name and that he has accepted the job. Benedict appointed Marini to the job in 2007, replacing Monsignor Piero Marini who for two decades was Pope John Paul II’s right-hand man for all things liturgical.

THE PROTO-DEACON: Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran. The proto-deacon’s main task is to announce to the world that a pope has been elected. He shouts “Habemus Papam!” (“We have a pope!”) from the balcony overlooking St. Peter’s Square after the white smoke has snaked up from the Sistine Chapel chimney. He then introduces the new pope along with the name the pope has chosen. The French-born Tauran is a veteran Vatican diplomat who served in the Dominican Republic and Lebanon.

Family members console each other Friday near the home where Jeff Bush disappeared as a large sinkhole opened under the bedroom of his house in Seffner, Fla. Jeremy Bush told rescue crews he heard a loud crash near midnight Thursday, then heard his brother screaming.

Sinkhole that swallowed man ‘unstable’ The ASSOCIATED PRESS SEFFNER, Fla. – In a matter of seconds, the earth opened under Jeff Bush’s bedroom and swallowed him up like something out of a horror movie. About the only thing left was the TV cable running down into the hole. Bush, 37, was presumed dead Friday, the victim of a sinkhole – a hazard so common in Florida that state law requires home insurers to provide coverage against the danger. The sinkhole, estimated at 20 feet across and 20 feet deep, caused the home’s concrete floor to cave in around 11 p.m. Thursday as everyone in the Tampa-area house was turning in for the night. It gave way with a loud crash that sounded like a car hitting the house and brought Bush’s brother running. Jeremy Bush said he jumped into the hole but couldn’t see his brother and had to be rescued himself

GI’s WikiLeaks admission energizes supporters By BEN NUCKOLS The Associated Press WASHINGTON – While it may be a curious legal strategy, an Army private’s decision to admit in court that he sent hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks has energized his supporters around the world. Pfc. Bradley Manning, 25, has been called by some a whistleblowing hero, a political prisoner and a symbol of the misplaced priorities of the U.S. military and the Obama administration. Others, particularly in the United States, view him as a traitor. Regardless of his motives, he appears likely to spend many years in a military prison. At the very least, Manning likely ended speculation that he leaked the largest trove of classified material in U.S. history wantonly or unknowingly.

At a court hearing Thursday, Manning read a 35-page statement describing his internal deliberations about whether to send the first batch of hundreds of thousands of battlefield reports from Iraq and Afghanistan. He said he was trying to expose the American military’s disregard for human life and provoke a public debate about U.S. military and foreign policy. “I felt this sense of relief by them having it,” Manning said Thursday of WikiLeaks. “I felt I had accomplished something that allowed me to have a clear conscience.” Jeff Paterson of the Bradley Manning Support Network, which has raised more than $900,000 for Manning’s legal defense, said the statement confirmed what supporters have long thought of him. “We’ve been defending this person as a heroic whistleblower for 2½ years now, and

it was inspiring and it was motivating to finally hear in his own words why he made this life-changing and possibly history-changing decision,” Paterson said. Besides the battlefield reports, he sent WikiLeaks hundreds of thousands of State Department diplomatic cables, detainee records from the military prison at Guantanamo Bay and other classified records. He also released a 2007 combat video of a U.S. helicopter assault that killed 11 men, including a Reuters news photographer. Manning said he didn’t think the material would harm the United States, although the diplomatic cables would be embarrassing. The Obama administration has said it threatened valuable military and diplomatic sources and strained relations with other governments.

by a sheriff’s deputy who reached out and pulled him to safety as the ground crumbled around him. “The floor was still giving in and the dirt was still going down, but I didn’t care.

A dresser and the TV set had vanished down the hole,

along with most of Bush’s bed. “All I could see was the cable wire running from the TV going down into the hole. I saw a corner of the bed and a corner of the box spring and the frame of the bed,” Jeremy Bush said. At a news conference Friday night, county administrator Mike Merrill described the home as “seriously unstable.” He said no one can go in the home because officials were afraid of another collapse and losing more lives. The soil around the home was very soft and the sinkhole was expected to grow. Engineers said they may have to demolish the small, sky-blue house, even though from the outside there appeared to be nothing wrong with the four-bedroom, concrete-wall structure, built in 1974. “I cannot tell you why it has not collapsed yet,” said Bill Bracken, the owner of engineering company called

on to assess the sinkhole and home. Engineers said there was an initial collapse followed by another one a short time later. The hole was 15 feet deep but grew to about 25 feet deep, and it was about 20 feet to 30 feet across. Florida is highly prone to sinkholes because there are caverns below ground of limestone, a porous rock that easily dissolves in water. A sinkhole near Orlando grew to 400 feet across in 1981 and devoured five sports cars, most of two businesses, a three-bedroom house and the deep end of an Olympicsize swimming pool. Jeremy Bush said someone came out to the home a couple of months ago to check for sinkholes and other things, apparently for insurance purposes. “He said there was nothing wrong with the house. Nothing. And a couple of months later, my brother dies. In a sinkhole,” Bush said.

Tryon: Lawmakers should vote on complete bills, not piecemeal proposals • PENSION Continued from page A1 “yes” vote came from Madigan – and another would require state employees to contribute 5 percent more to their funds. The authors of the 1970 Illinois Constitution included a provision that pension benefits cannot be diminished or impaired, meaning any attempt to alter existing benefits for state employees and retirees undoubtedly will face a strong legal challenge from Illinois’ powerful public-sector unions. Reforms that took effect in 2011 for state hires going forward raised the retirement age to 67, lowered the COLA percentage and set a maxi-

mum salary from which pensions can be calculated. Rep. Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, echoed Thursday’s remarks from Minority Leader Tom Cross, R-Oswego, in calling Thursday’s hearing a farce. Tryon said lawmakers should vote on complete bills, not piecemeal proposals such as what was attempted Tuesday in a similar hearing over approving a federal courtmandated bill to allow concealed carry in Illinois. “This is ridiculous. They put up blatantly unconstitutional parts of pension bills that are changing terms for existing retirees. It was just another type of politics,” Tryon said. “We have several bills – put them up. Let’s vote on them. The stuff we were vot-

TOP LEFT: Mike Tryon TOP RIGHT: David McSweeney, LEFT: Barbara Wheeler ing on [Thursday] wouldn’t have survived any kind of legal challenge.” McHenry County’s freshman House members – Republicans David McSweeney and Barbara Wheeler – said after their January swearing-in that they wanted immediate action on pension reform. But

they joined their party in boycotting the vote. “It was political theater. It was just a joke, and they were not serious proposals,” said McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills. “We’re in a crisis, and it’s time for serious people to get the job done. What I saw yesterday is everything that’s wrong with politics.” Thursday’s proposals were likely a series of test votes to see how far lawmakers are willing to go to rein in pension costs, which have reached crisis proportions because of decades of elected officials underfunding them while at the same time approving generous benefits. It will cost $8.5 billion, or more than a quarter of the state’s General Fund, just to keep the $96 billion gap from

growing. Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake, called Madigan’s “nuclear” amendments an attempt to trap Republican lawmakers into making unpopular votes. “It was a setup for the 2014 election. We can’t be concerned about elections – we have to be concerned about pension reform,” Wheeler said. While both parties own the blame for the pension mess, majority Democrats may end up owning the fix – or the lack of one. Voters in November handed Democrats supermajorities in both houses, meaning they can pass legislation without a single Republican vote. McSweeney said Franks’ idea to hold a Committee of the Whole and table all other

business until a workable and defendable reform plan is created is the best route to go. Franks said Cross and Madigan are discussing the idea. The House is set to reconvene Tuesday. Illinois’ public pension obligations have swallowed almost all of the new revenue created by the historic 2011 income-tax increase that Democratic lawmakers had sold as a temporary measure to pay down the state’s huge backlog of unpaid bills. The tax increase – 67 percent on individuals and 46 percent on businesses – is supposed to start phasing out in 2015, but a bill filed last month by Rep. Lou Lang, D-Skokie, seeks to make it permanent as part of a plan to stabilize the pension system.

Huntley village manager says they save on costs 10 states ban hand-held • ALGONQUIN

Providing services

Continued from page A1 maintenance for the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District and the Pingree Grove Police Department. Cary and Carpentersville also use Algonquin for building inspections and plan review services. “We have the staff that understands municipal regulations,” Kumbera said. “I think we’re definitely competitive.” When it comes to plan reviews, Algonquin projects take precedent over other municipalities in terms of completing reviews, Kumbera said. The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District recently renewed its contract for fleet maintenance. “It’s extremely helpful,” Interim Fire Chief Patrick Gericke said. “It gives us a resource of qualified, knowledgeable mechanics in a facility that is closely located to us. It’s reassurance our equipment is repaired quickly and done right.”

Algonquin has seven intergovernmental agreements to provide services to other taxing bodies: Information Systems • Huntley Police Department • Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District Fleet Maintenance • Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District • Pingree Grove Police Department Building/Inspections/Plan Review Services • Village of Cary • Village of Carpentersville • Village of Huntley

Assistant Chief of Administration John Gaughan said before the agreement, the district would rely on vendors outside the area for vehicle maintenance. Sometimes the district would need to take vehicles to Elmhurst, which required two firefighters driving to the loca-

tion to drop off the equipment, driving back to the station and eventually returning to pick up the vehicle. To work on fire engines requires special certification. “Finding vendors that were close by was difficult,” Gaughan said The district started contracting with the village for IT services because the district’s IT manager is approaching retirement. Contracting with the village allows the district to potentially outsource the service to the village on a permanent basis. Currently, the village’s IT personnel serve as a backup for the district’s IT manager. The village’s IT employee “has been able to learn and understand our system, our network and our needs,” Gaughan said. “It’s a model that has proven beneficial to both agencies and ... our taxpayers.” Huntley uses plan review services to supplement its own staff, Village Manager Dave Johnson said. Huntley also decided to use IT services from Algonquin.

“We looked at our operations and looked to partner with agencies who have resources we don’t have,” Johnson said. Huntley had employees leave, which allowed the village to look at options on how to replace them. It opted for intergovernmental agreements to share resources, Johnson said. The village saves on longterm costs, salaries and benefits. Johnson estimated the village has saved close to six figures. “It certainly is an advantage from a financial perspective,” Johnson said. “It is something that has worked well for Huntley, and I like to think Algonquin.” Huntley has an agreement with Lake in the Hills, in which Huntley provides plumbing inspection services. Johnson said Algonquin has taken the initiative for sharing services. “In the area, they certainly have been the leader in reaching out in trying to do it,” Johnson said. “We feel it has worked for both of us.”

Continued from page A1 “Low-income individuals in the state are going to have a hard time, particularly people who are unemployed, because this is not cheap technology,” said Rep. Jim Durkin, a Republican from Western Springs. Others argued the bill represents undue government intervention into private practices. Rep. Dennis Reboletti, R-Elmhurst, said such a law could lead to other regulations restricting motorists. “What about shaving, eating McDonald’s, having children in the back seat?” Reboletti said. As many as 80 percent of the more than 220 million people in the United States who subscribe to wireless services use their phones while driving, according to data from the National Conference of State Legisla-

tures. Ten states – including California, New York and West Virginia – and Washington, D.C., ban hand-held phone use by all drivers. Illinois lawmakers banned texting while driving in 2009. Since then, D’Amico said, more than 3,500 have been cited for violating the law. Critics questioned whether that law and the potential ban on hand-held phone use will be enforced. “Every direction you look there’s people texting while driving,” said Rep. Anthony DeLuca, a Democrat from Chicago Heights. “What reason do we have to believe that it’s going to be enforced.”

Don’t break tax promise After they rammed it down our throats in January 2011, Gov. Pat Quinn and others promised that most of the state’s 67 percent incometax increase would last only for a little while. The increase in Illinois’ flat personal income-tax rate from 3 percent to 5 percent was supposed to roll back, falling to 3.75 percent in 2015 and 3.25 percent in 2025. The corporate income-tax rate, which increased For the record from 4.8 percent to 7 percent, was to We’re appalled by a bill that fall to 5.25 percent seeks to make the 2011 income in 2015. tax increase permanent. This increase, which takes about $1,000 more a year out of the pockets of working families depending on their income, was supposed to be a stopgap, something to buy time while our leaders came up with more permanent solutions to our state’s pension crisis. More than two years later, all under Quinn’s watch, almost nothing has been accomplished. The problem has grown only worse. Now comes a proposal from a Democratic state representative to make the full amount of the tax increase permanent. It’s appalling, if not shocking. State Rep. Lou Lang of Skokie is the assistant majority leader in the state House. Last week, he presented a plan to keep the full income-tax increase in effect to help pay the state’s mounting pension debt at least through 2019. But really, once in place that long, there’s no way it will ever be rolled back. Of course, the state’s pension debt already is consuming all of the extra $7 billion a year the increase brings in in income-tax receipts. Meanwhile, our state cannot pay its bills in a timely manner, falling more than $6 billion behind on payments to vendors, with time to receive payment stretching six months to a year. This income-tax increase ought to be rescinded immediately. Those Illinoisans fortunate enough to have jobs need their money; state government needs to get its financial house in order. It’s no mystery what needs to be done: A pension deal must be worked out and spending must be cut. Our state’s leaders must keep their word and not seek to make this “temporary” increase a permanent albatross around the necks of workers and companies who are still doing business in Illinois.


College degrees Whether it’s Darwinian theory or basic logic is irrelevant. All job-seekers need to know that it’s getting increasingly difficult to land decent employment without a bachelor’s degree. That’s not a new premise, of course. Regardless of the field, four-year degrees have long been seen as a needed pathway to a better life and sustainable employment. While today’s trends show that bachelor’s degrees are indeed needed, they’re often earning job-seekers positions that pay low wages and require menial tasks. In other words, today’s BA is fast becoming yesterday’s high school diploma. And the trickle-down effect that has on high-school grads seeking work is obvious. “Degree inflation” is the real deal; it may get worse. The Anniston (Ala.) Star

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Background checks? To the Editor: Require background checks for gun purchases? Illinois already requires a firearms owner ID card to buy ammunition (including mail order) or a gun. Illinois completes a background check – minimum 30 days before issue. Disqualifications include convictions for a felony, act of domestic violence, assault or battery within the past five years, being subject to an order of protection. Also checked are the Department of Human Services database to disqualify anyone adjudicated as a mental defective, or a patient of a mental institution within the past five years. Illinois residents must have their FOID when outside their home, such as at a shooting range, hunting or transporting their firearms. Buying a gun, you are checked again. When a firearm is sold by a Federal Firearms License holder or at a gun show, the seller performs a dial-up inquiry to the State Police! The police perform an automated search of several criminal and mental health databases, including the federal NICS database before approving. The waiting period to take possession is 72 hours for a handgun, 24 hours for a rifle or shotgun. Private sales are allowed, and are subject to these same requirements. Illinois is very strict about revoking FOID cards after a crime. Anti-gun groups want an FBI criminal background check before each gun purchase, including

fingerprinting, mug shots and 90- to-180-day waits. Why? This is only to stop the law-abiding from buying a gun. We already have a background check system. Wayne Walusiak Spring Grove

few years, some other students and I have set up a Gay Straight Alliance Club under the supervision of a teacher. It is an equality club that is a safe haven for all LGBTQAI students. The problem is that we are not allowed to advertise because School District 155 calls it a political club. Meanwhile, other clubs are able to advertise and get funds from the school. We can be in the school, but without advertisements and funds, we can’t get our word out and let people who need this support know about our club. We are not affiliated with any religion, and we only want to promote equality and break down inequality and hate. It is a shame that the school will not let an equality club have the same rights as other clubs. Emma Falk

driving property values down resulted in decreased tax revenue, adding to the Illinois deficit mess. Carol Perschke is the hands-on authority concerning real-estate value assessments. Crafting the fair system on the local level for appealing assessments and managing a very capable staff, she effectively implements all of the aspects of the assessor mission. Although Illinois’ equalization rates applied to the assessed values determine the property taxes we pay, without a willing, proactive, consumer-oriented assessor, the net property-tax result could be staggering in many circumstances. I don’t farm for appeal work and don’t need to court the assessor, but I have interacted professionally with Perschke for myself and clients on property evaluations. She transcends beyond the Realtor approach, bringing greater expertise and management experience to the office. She is the smarter choice. George Braun Johnsburg

First lady should focus on important issues, ditch frivolities It’s time for first lady Michelle Obama to raise her game. Nothing wrong with telling kids to eat their peas or showing them how to Hula-Hoop. But after four years of focusing on the body, she’d do well to spend these next four on building strong minds. Especially girls’. “If I had the first lady’s ear, I’d say talk more about the kind of education that women and girls – girls of color, in particular – will need to make it in a global economy,” said Avis Jones-DeWeever, executive director of the National Council of Negro Women. E. Faye Williams, chairwoman of the National Congress of Black Women, said: “I’d like to see her promote the important work being done by women in this country, talk more about how she overcame her own difficulties and encourage girls not to back away from goals that may seem out of reach.” Williams and Jones-DeWeever are among Michelle Obama’s most ardent admirers – and defenders.

as critiques but as responses to my question: What else would they like to see her do? The first lady is reportedly looking for an expanded role in her husband’s second term, and I, for one, hope she finds it. Soon. Enough with the broccoli and Brussels sprouts – to say nothing about all the attention paid to her arms, hair, derriere and designer clothes. Where is that intellectually gifted Princeton graduate, the Harvard-educated lawyer and mentor to the man who would become the first African American president of the United States? Surely that was not the first lady bumping hips and doing hand-jive dancing with Jimmy Fallon in drag on his late-night TV talk show. The daughter of a Chicago city pump operator and a secretary, she was raised in a one-bedroom apartment on the rough-and-tumble South Side. She and her brother slept in the living room. And yet, by sixth grade, she was speaking French and taking advanced courses at a magnet school. At Prince-

VIEWS Courtland Milloy ton, she majored in sociology and developed a profound understanding of African American history. After earning the law degree from Harvard, she went to work for a law firm specializing in intellectual property and then became a Chicago city administrator and a community outreach worker. She ought to be under consideration for a seat on the Supreme Court, not recruited as a presenter in some Hollywood movie contest. Last year, in one of the most important initiatives of his administration, President Barack Obama announced a partnership between the United States and 12 other countries to “break down economic and political barriers that stand in the way of women and girls.” The initiative, the Equal Futures Partnership, has been spearheaded by Obama senior adviser Valerie


Jarrett and, until her departure this year, former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton. The effort cries out for Michelle Obama to fill Clinton’s shoes. Back in 2011, the first lady even gave a speech to the National Science Foundation about keeping girls interested in science, technology, engineering and math, the “STEM” disciplines. These days, however, we’re more likely to hear her talk about stems in a White House vegetable garden than about girls excelling in science and math. Williams and Jones-DeWeever part ways with me on such an assessment. Both believe that the first lady’s “Let’s Move” exercise and nutrition campaign has been effective in reducing childhood obesity. And they applaud her partnership with Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, to help military families. As for my view that booty shaking with Fallon and participating in the Academy Awards were frivolities unbecoming to both Michelle Obama and her position as first

lady, Williams replied: “Is there ever a time when a black woman can get away from the heavy lifting of the day?” How would Parks have answered that? Or Sojourner Truth? In 2009, Michelle Obama helped unveil a statue of Truth at the U.S. Capitol. The great abolitionist was the first black woman to be so honored; Parks is the second. “One can only imagine what Sojourner Truth, an outspoken, tell-it-like-it-is kind of woman ... would have to say about this incredible gathering,” the first lady said. “Just looking down on this day, and thinking about the legacy she has left all of us, because we are all here because, as my husband says time and time again, we stand on the shoulders of giants like Sojourner Truth.” And what of her own shoulders? Will they be broad enough for future generations of women and girls to stand on? Or just good to look at?

No paper trail in Harvard Former alderman resigns before accepting Public Works position By SHAWN SHINNEMAN HARVARD – The city never advertised, gathered applications or conducted formal interviews for a Public Works Department opening filled last month by former Alderman Darrell Perkins. Perkins, who submitted a letter of resignation from his seat as 4th Ward alderman in early February, was hired

“People came out and talked to me about it, but they didn’t have a [commercial driver’s license] and they weren’t a mechanic, and I said we’re looking for someone with a little more experience.” Jay Nolan, Harvard mayor about two weeks ago to work in the department, Mayor Jay Nolan said. Nolan said Perkins’ union position comes with a pay rate of about $20 an hour, translating to a

baseline salary of $41,600. Nolan said the city “had feelers out” to people in the community, receiving about eight applications for the position and interviewing

three people. After the Northwest Herald filed a Freedom of Information Act request asking for those applications, Nolan clarified that there were

NO ONE INJURED IN C’VILLE FIRE CARPENTERSVILLE – A single-family residence was left uninhabitable after a fire broke out in an upstairs bedroom and smoke permeated the upstairs, a fire official said. The Carpentersville Fire Department responded about 2:20 p.m. Friday to a fire at 1503 Plymouth Circle, Carpentersville Battalion Chief Kieran Stout said. It took firefighters about 10 minutes to extinguish the fire, which was contained to the bedroom. The two adults who were home at the time were able to get out of the house uninjured and call in the fire, Stout said. Damage to the structure and contents is estimated at $20,000. Investigators think the cause was electrical in nature, he said.

Proposed fee plan could Murder witness sting flea market owners charged with theft By JANE HUH McHENRY – Flea market operators say a proposed $1,400 annual city license fee could drive them and their vendors out of business. “We may have to move. We’re a marginal business. We don’t make a lot of money here,” said Edwina Nevitt, owner of Fox River Flea Market. “To be honest, it seems like [the city] doesn’t want us here and wants to put us out of business.” The issue is up for a vote at Monday night’s City Council meeting. Other than zoning rules, McHenry does not have specific regulations governing flea markets. If passed, the fee will take effect in May. Flea market operators can pay the $1,400 license fee in a lump sum or in four quarterly installments of $350. It also requires operators to provide proof of applicable federal and state licenses before receiving a McHenry license to operate.

“Right now, we’re struggling as it is. I don’t know what’s going to happen. Me, myself, what I earn annually is between $1,000 and $1,500. And then [subtract] the 7.5 percent sales tax.” Carl Eckel McHenry flea market owner Since fall, the city’s Community Development Committee has worked to spell out licensing and operation rules. The committee initially focused on imposing daily fees on individual vendors, but flea market operators Eckel’s McHenry Flea Market and Fox River Flea Market said imposing daily fees on vendors was excessive. Under the proposal, McHenry police will have “general supervision over

all flea market operations and shall also have power to inspect their respective places of business.” Police, during normal business hours at the site, would have authority to inspect record books, computers, inventory directly related to the purchases and sale of articles. “Articles which the [police or other law enforcement agency] have reasonable grounds to believe were stolen may be impounded or left with the vendor under a hold order at the discretion of any member of the police department,” it states. A flea market, according to the city, is defined as “any business activities commonly known as but not limited to swap shops, penny markets, rummage sales, and where tangible articles are bought, sold or exchanged by more than one vendor, not otherwise regulated in the City of McHenry Municipal Code.” Resale and secondhand

Allegedly stole from Kohl’s, Meijer By SARAH SUTSCHEK McHENRY – A woman who once said she became the getaway driver in the 2001 murder of a McHenry restaurant owner was back in McHenry County Jail this week. Susanne Dallas DeCicco, 30, of McHenry is charged with theft for allegedly stealing miscellaneous clothing from the Kohl’s in McHenry and other items from Meijer. Because of a previous conviction in a 2004 case that led to a three-year prison sentence, she is facing felony charges. DeCicco also is on parole after a 1-year sentence on a drug case, which also included retail theft and other charges that were dropped as part of a plea deal. DeCicco was a key witness for the defense of Kenneth E. Smith, who was convicted of murder for the third time a year ago in the attempted armed robbery and shooting

death of Raul Briseño. Briseño owned Burrito Express on Route 120 in McHenry and was shot after he chased out two men who tried to rob him. Smith was found guilty twice for Briseño’s death, but both convictions were overturned on appeal. Smith’s third trial was delayed several times because DeCicco couldn’t be found. She later turned up in the jail after Lake in the Hills police charged her with stealing various items from Dominick’s. DeCicco told police on two occasions that her boyfriend and cousin were responsible for the slaying, using her stepfather’s gun to commit the crime and then jumping into her car. But when called to the stand, she denied any involvement and said she had made it all up. Smith was sentenced to 67 years in prison. His case is still on appeal. DeCicco remained in jail Friday afternoon, needing $3,000 to post bond.

• HIRING Continued from page B1 Perkins hasn’t commented publicly since his retirement and didn’t return calls Friday. Nolan, who has ultimate hiring and firing authority within Harvard, said the city had been considering bringing on a Public Works employee for “quite awhile,” and that Perkins possessed skills needed for the job that he felt would be tough to find elsewhere. “We had an opening,” he said. “I believe we had a welltalented, all-around man to fill that position.”

March 2&3

Welcome to Plan!t Weekend



Celebrate maple syrup this weekend. Learn how it was made hundreds of years ago, how sap is collected and what happens at the evaporator house. Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day with tours leaving every 15 minutes, the final tour leaving at 3 p.m. The tour involve a halfmile hike over uneven terrain. This is free. Please, no pets. Hosted by the McHenry County Conservation District.


Let me start this convoluted tale with three sentences. I love going to the airport. The Golfer in my Life has great timing. Technology is amazing.


Autumn and bring you the most complete listing of events for you and your family each week! Please email Autumn at asiegmeier@shawmedia for the Planit calendar or questions.


The Golfer was in Las Vegas on business the first part of this week. He flew out Sunday morning so I ended up watching the Oscars solo, one of the predictions I got right that night. (My review This monthly indie Craft Market features local artists and crafters offering handmade wares and of the show: Way too long and Seth just wasn’t that funny in that venue. Bring on Tina and one of a kind gifts. The hours are 10 a.m. to 4 Amy!). The drive to O’Hare on Sunday was easy, p.m. Next market is April 6. with just a quick pullover at Terminal Three to drop him at the curb. I am probably one of the few people that likes making the trip to O’Hare. I still think flying is exciting, even if I am not a passenger. As a kid, I remember going to the airport, even just to drop off or pick up someone, was a huge event. There were so many unknowns: Does everyone have their tickets? Was MARCH 2 the flight on schedule? What time should you “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST” leave the house? Would parking be easy? What PRAIRIE RIDGE HIGH SCHOOL, CRYSTAL LAKE gate number were they at? Now, it is just so much easier. You don’t even print out tickets Enjoy this romantic tale of Belle and Beast with all anymore! the favorite songs including “Be Our Guest” and “Beauty and the Beast.” Showtimes are 1 and 7 The Golfer’s return flight was Tuesday night. p.m. Performances also on March 8 and 9. The fact that he made it back during that snow is all you need to know about his timing and bad weather. We all remember the Great Snow of 2011; the Golfer headed to Florida the day before it hit. Anyways, he and I had been texting all day about the weather. As it worsened here, the sales guys he was with in Las Vegas were Please note; we try to be as accurate as possible with our events but things are subject surprised his flight hadn’t been canceled. I kept to change without notice. Check the listing and confirm before heading to an event. checking online and saw the flight was marked


“on time.” By the time he was at the airport, things still seemed a go. They even loaded all of the passengers on the plane but unloaded them twenty minutes later. At their scheduled departure time, there was only one runway open at O’Hare. Finally they announced the flight was delayed two hours but still scheduled to leave that night. Lucky guy. Not so lucky me as it meant that my return trip to the airport was going to be even later in the evening. Once I saw the flight was “in air” on the website, I figured out what time to leave the house, about an hour and a half before his plane was due to land. I thought the roads would be fine but didn’t want any surprises once I got on 90. If I made good time, my plan was to just loiter at the Des Plaines Oasis until about fifteen minutes before his estimated arrival. To say the least, I made great time and was at the Oasis in under fortyfive minutes. I had grabbed my Ipad, figuring I could scope out Pinterest while waiting. As I was sitting in my car, listening to the Sirius XM broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” texting Son on my iPhone and Sporcling on my Ipad with a bluetooth keyboard, I had an “aha” moment. Technology is amazing. Those forty minutes were great, albeit a little creepy; single woman in a car at the oasis at night is not the most ideal situation. All of those devices made my time waiting for the Golfer enjoyable and one might say even productive. Caught up on some politics, practiced my world capitals and found a few great ideas for an upcoming bridal shower. The Golfer landed right on time and we were home for the end of Craig Ferguson. Enjoy the weekend! Autumn

On screen now “A Good Day To Die Hard” H STARRING: Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch and Mary Elizabeth Winstead PLOT: John McClane travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son, Jack, only to discover Jack is a CIA operative working to prevent a nuclear-weapons heist, causing the father and son to team up against underworld forces. RATING: R for violence and language TIME: 1 hour, 37 minutes VERDICT: It’s supposed to be a parody of itself, right? That’s the only way to explain this ridiculously over-the-top, repetitively numbing fifth film in the “Die Hard” franchise. John McClane used to be a cowboy. Now, he’s a cartoon character – specifically, Wile E. Coyote, given how many times he should be seriously injured and/or killed in this movie. The most he suffers is a scratch here and there, and then he’s ready to pop back up again with a bemused twinkle in his eye and a wry quip. Part of the charm of this career-defining Bruce Willis’ character was the regularguy, Reagan-era resourcefulness he represented; now, he’s weirdly superhuman. But as charismatic as Willis ordinarily is, even he can’t fool us into thinking he’s enjoying himself this time. “A Good Day to Die Hard” is pointless and joyless, a barrage of noise and chaos, an onslaught of destruction without the slightest mention of consequence. Director John Moore mistakes shaky-cam and dizzying zooms for artistic finesse in his action sequences. But the most obnoxious element of all may be the fatherson feel-goodery that occurs in the midst of all this madness. You see, Willis’ unstoppable New York cop has traveled to Moscow to track down his bitter, estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), whom he believes to be in criminal trouble. Jack is actually a spy working undercover to protect a government whistleblower (Sebastian Koch), and dad has arrived just in time to ruin his mission. Now they must work together – and bond. – Christy

“Identity Thief” HH

STARRING: Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Amanda Peet, Robert Patrick PLOT: When a Denver businessman (Bateman) discovers that a Florida woman has stolen his identity and destroyed his credit record, he travels to the Sunshine State to confront her. RATING: R for sexual content and language TIME: 1 hour, 52 minutes VERDICT: After a lengthy setup, this turns out to be a road comedy patterned after the “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” formula of forcing a family man to travel with a weirdo. The attempt is misguided, because McCarthy is an unrepentant crook who doesn’t earn the sympathy that John Candy did. Many other clichés are visited along the way. Despite the script’s slippery grasp on morality, Bateman and McCarthy still find ways to be funny and charming. – Jeffrey Westhoff, The

Northwest Herald

“Jack the Giant Slayer” HHH STARRING: Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci PLOT: After farm boy Jack (Hoult) trades the family horse for some magic beans, he accidentally grows a towering beanstalk that could reignite an ancient war between men and giants. He joins a team of brave knights to climb the beanstalk and rescue a beautiful princess (Tomlin-

RATINGS HHHH - Excellent HHH - Recommended HH - Not recommended H - Awful son) from the hungry giants. RATING: PG-13 for intense sequences of fantasy action violence, some frightening images and brief language TIME: 1 hour, 54 minutes VERDICT: Except for a few moments thrown in to gain a PG-13 rating, this is an old-fashioned family adventure fantasy along the lines of “Jason and the Argonauts” and “The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad.” Director Bryan Singer (“The X-Men”) plays the material at face value without shrinking from its corny virtues, and the cast charms by playing it straight. The CGI giants are fearsome villains, and visual effects featuring the beanstalk are imaginative. The thrill-packed finale goes on too long, though, which is a symptom of current action movies.

– Jeffrey Westhoff

“The Last Stand” HHH STARRING: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville PLOT: The leader of a drug cartel busts out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexican border, where the only thing in his path is a sheriff and his inexperienced staff. RATING: R for strong, bloody violence throughout and language TIME: 1 hour, 47 minutes VERDICT: ”The Last Stand” is the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie you didn’t even realize you wanted to see. This is the action superstar’s first leading role in a decade, having left acting to serve as the governor of California and whatnot, and while it may not have occurred to you to miss him during that time, it’s still surprisingly good to see him on the big screen again. He is not exactly pushing himself here. Korean director Kim Jee-woon’s American filmmaking debut turns out to be an extremely Schwarzeneggerish Schwarzenegger film, full of big, violent set pieces and broad comedy. He may look a little creaky (and facially freaky) these days, but Arnold proves he’s still game for the mayhem as he fires off rounds and tosses off one-liners, and the movie at least has the decency to acknowledge that it knows that you know that he’s old. – Christy

Lemire, The Associated Press

“Les Misérables” HH½ STARRING: Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfreid PLOT: Years after ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Jackman) breaks his parole to become a virtuous man, fanatical policeman Javert (Crowe) continues to hunt him. While avoiding Javert, Valjean helps a dying prostitute (Hathaway) and, years later, her daughter (Seyfried). RATING: PG-13 for suggestive and sexual material, violence and thematic elements

TIME: 2 hours, 37 minutes VERDICT: Director Tom Hooper’s interpretation of the blockbuster stage show is a musical in closeup. With his actors singing their roles “live,” Hooper can push his camera’s right into their faces. This is riveting for the first hour, then becomes repetitive. Jackman, Crowe and Hathaway are electrifying. This film was made for fans of the stage show. Others who don’t know the story going in will be lucky if they know it going out. – Jeffrey

Westhoff, Northwest Herald

“Safe Haven” HH

they initially seem, all of which Soderbergh depicts with his typically cool detachment. The complexity of emotion, confusion and loss at the film’s start gives way to some acrobatic trickery by the end, but “Side Effects” is never less than gripping or entertaining. Mara, who showed such fierce intelligence in David Fincher’s “The Social Network” and “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” is quietly chilling here. With her waiflike frame, chiseled facial features and steely eyes that reveal nothing, she’s like a mysterious child’s doll come to life. – Christy

Lemire, The Associated Press

STARRING: Julianne Hough, Josh Duhamel, Cobie Smulders PLOT: A young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, N.C., where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her. RATING: PG-13 for thematic material involving threatening behavior, and for violence and sexuality TIME: 1 hour, 55 minutes VERDICT: It’s easy to understand why Hollywood loves doing business with author Nicholas Sparks. His books are huge best-sellers, and several of the films adapted from his novels – “Message in a Bottle,” ‘’The Notebook,” and “Dear John” – have achieved impressive box office grosses. The latest Sparks adaptation, “Safe Haven,” will probably continue his winning streak. A thriller element that has not been present in earlier Sparks movies is designed to draw reluctant male viewers to see the picture, but they won’t respond with the same enthusiasm as his core audience of woozy romantics. The first problem with the film is that the burgeoning romance is too flat to generate intense audience empathy. Alex’s daughter, who barely remembers her mother, warms to Katie immediately, but her older brother has a harder time with his father’s new relationship. Still, this complication isn’t especially well developed in the screenplay by Dana Stevens and Gage Lansky. A related problem is the casting. The best Sparks movie, “The Notebook,” had the strongest cast, with talented newcomers Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams balancing seasoned veterans James Garner and Gena Rowlands. To put it as charitably as possible, the actors in “Safe Haven” are not in the same league. Hough, better known as a singer and dancer than a dramatic actress, is likably spunky, but Duhamel fades into the background, and there are no lively supporting players in the ensemble.– Stephen

Farber, The Hollywood Reporter

“Side Effects” HHH

STARRING: Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law PLOT: Emily and Martin are a successful New York couple whose world unravels when a new drug prescribed by Emily’s psychiatrist – intended to treat anxiety – has unexpected side effects. RATING: R for sexuality, nudity, violence and language TIME: 1 hour, 46 minutes VERDICT: If “Side Effects” is indeed Steven Soderbergh’s final film, as he’s said it will be after toying with the notion of retirement for a couple of years now, then intriguingly it feels like he’s coming full circle in some ways to the film that put him on the map: the trailblazing, 1989 indie “sex, lies and videotape.” Both are lurid genre exercises, laid bare. Both focus on the intertwined lives of four central figures, including a scene in which one of the men interviews one of the women on video, hoping to unearth a hidden truth. Both movies are about danger, secrets and manipulation, filled with characters who aren’t what

“21 & Over” HH½

STARRING: Miles Teller, Justin Chon, Johnathan Keltz PLOT: The night before his big medical school exam, a promising student celebrates his 21st birthday with his two best friends. RATING: R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, some graphic nudity, drugs and drinking TIME: 1 hour, 33 minutes VERDICT: If you liked “The Hangover” but felt like it needed more projectile vomit, stampeding buffaloes and naughty sorority pledges being spanked, then “21 & Over” is the feel-good, feel-bad movie for you. The writers of that 2009 smash hit, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, wrote the script here, too, and direct for the first time. Comparatively, it is simultaneously amped-up and slapped together. It is both younger and dumber but also even more equal opportunity in choosing its targets; the same people who get tooled on also rise up and enjoy a certain amount of empowerment. Sometimes this balancing act works and sometimes it doesn’t. “21 & Over” is at its best when it’s riding an all-night, boozy high, when it captures a sensation of idiotic invincibility. When it tries to be about something – growing up and being responsible but still maintaining the fun and friendships of youth – it feels a bit strained. – Christy

Lemire, The Associated Press

“Warm Bodies” HHH STARRING: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich, Rob Corddry PLOT: A zombie boy (Hoult) who retains a vestige of his soul meets a human girl (Palmer) and falls in love. Eventually she returns his affections, but her father (Malkovich) is the zombie-hating leader of the local militia. RATING: PG-13 for zombie violence and some language TIME: 1 hour, 37 minutes VERDICT: Not only is this the first zombie romantic comedy, but also the first movie told from a zombie’s point of view (Hoult’s character narrates). In a low key way, the various story elements – romance, comedy, horror and suspense – work, but not always at the same time. Yet writer-director Jonathan Levine (“50/50”) pulls it all together with a sense of good cheer and, yes, heart. Hoult’s sympathetic and humorous performance provides much of the weird charm. – Jeffrey

“Zero Dark Thirty” HHH½ STARRING: Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Jennifer Ehle, James Gandolfini PLOT: A CIA officer (Chastain) leads an eight-year hunt for Osama bin Laden, which climaxes with a daring nighttime raid in Pakistan. RATING: R for language and strong violence including brutal, disturbing images TIME: 2 hours, 37 minutes VERDICT: Much like her Oscar-

winning “The Hurt Locker,” director Kathryn Bigelow’s account of the CIA’s search for Osama bin Laden is compelling filmmaking that can be difficult to watch at times, as it should be. Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal (who also wrote “Hurt Locker”) have been criticized for glamorizing torture. While they do not glamorize it (the torture scenes are horrifying), they should have been more critical of it rather than present it as a necessary evil. That said, this still is a hypnotic procedural that chronicles nearly a decade of frustrations and setbacks before the Navy SEALs celebrated raid on bin Laden’s compound. Chastain is dynamite as the flinty professional who remains focused on her mission even as her superiors begin to give up. Even though we know the outcome, the story is charged with suspense. – Jeffrey

High-achieving home-schooler suffers bullying Dear Abby: I am a 14-yearold female from the West Coast. I am home-schooled and don’t have many friends because I score high on tests, meaning I retain more information than the average person. On the rare occasion I mingle with children my own age, they call me unpleasant names, play pranks on me and otherwise torture me. I had to change my emergency cellphone number and start using my sister’s because there have been so many immature and insulting prank calls. I hate it. I can’t help that I am smart, and I refuse to

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips degrade myself by dumbing down my actions and speech because they can’t handle their insecurities. – High IQ Dear High IQ: Being “different” isn’t easy, and clearly you are very intelligent. But you and your parents should understand crank calls are not “pranks” – they are a form of bullying and should have been reported when they happened. Most parents who home-

school also network with other home-schooling parents so their children can socialize with peers. If your parents haven’t done this, I recommend you discuss it with them. You also might meet more intellectually advanced young people if you joined special-interest groups for older students. Your high IQ might be less threatening to the students who have given you trouble if you volunteer to tutor some of them who need help with their schoolwork. (Just don’t fall into the trap of doing it FOR them.) Dear Abby: I have been

with my boyfriend, “Dan,” for almost five years. He’s wonderful, and we have a great relationship. We have talked about spending our lives together, but had mutually agreed in the beginning that marriage wasn’t a priority for either of us. He has said for years he never wanted to marry, which is fine with me. I now suspect he’s planning to propose to me on our fifth anniversary. (He has never been great at hiding surprises.) I’m thrilled he wants to make that kind of commitment, and I want nothing more than to spend the rest

of my life with him, but the thought of marriage scares me. I don’t know if it’s nerves about the pending proposal or that I have never planned on marriage and now I have to think about all the stress and strife that comes with planning a wedding. I want to say yes, but I love the way things are right now, and I know marriage will change things. What, if anything, do I say to him? – Cold

Feet? In Salt Lake City Dear Cold Feet?: I wish you

years, it’s unlikely making a formal commitment would damage the special relationship you have together. Perhaps this is “old school,” but I feel if couples plan to bring children into the world, they should be married. Because you want nothing more than to spend the rest of your life with Dan, and are concerned about the stress of planning a wedding, when he pops the question, I suggest you say, “Yes – why don’t we elope?”

Umbilical cord stump will heal Dear Dr. K: I’m expecting my first baby. Can you tell me how to care for the umbilical cord stump? How long will it remain? Dear Reader: Why does every baby have an umbilical cord in the first place? Just as with every cell in your body, every cell in your baby’s body requires a constant supply of energy and sustenance, and disposes of its waste material, through the circulation of the blood. However, during the time your baby is a fetus in the womb, your baby isn’t eating or breathing. The energy comes from the food you eat and the oxygen in the air you breathe. The circulation of blood in and out of the fetus comes through the umbilical cord. One end of the cord enters the baby through its “belly button”; the other end is in the placenta – tissue inside your womb. When your baby is born, the placenta and umbilical cord will leave your body with the baby. Once your baby is born, he or she no longer needs the umbilical cord and will be eating and breathing on

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff his or her own. So, soon after birth, a doctor or nurse will clamp your baby’s umbilical cord, then cut it, leaving a small umbilical stump. The umbilical stump usually falls off within two weeks or so after birth. Here are the best ways for you to help the natural healing of the cord: • Keep the area clean and dry. • Avoid wetting the area when you bathe your baby. Give sponge baths rather than tub baths until the cord has totally separated and fallen off. If the area gets wet, dry it gently. • Do not cover the umbilical cord area with a diaper. If the diaper rubs against it, irritation and inflammation may develop. Fold back the top edge of the diaper to expose the cord. • If urine or stool gets on the stump, carefully clean the area with mild soap and water. Then dry the area

thoroughly. • If instructed by your doctor, clean the area around the cord with a cotton-tipped swab or piece of gauze dipped in rubbing alcohol. Some doctors no longer recommend this practice because alcohol does not necessarily prevent infection or speed up healing. • The stump may bleed a little just before it falls off. This is normal. • Let the cord fall off by itself. Do not try to pull or twist it off. • After the cord falls off, the belly button (navel) area may look pink or yellow. It can take several more days or even weeks to heal completely. Continue to keep the area clean and dry. You may give tub baths, but dry the belly button thoroughly afterward. In some infants, the belly button area seems to heal slowly and looks moist, pink and lumpy. This is usually harmless. Still, if this occurs, tell your baby’s doctor.

Bonnie Franklin dies THINGS


Saturday, March 2, 2013 •

Bonnie Franklin, the pert, redheaded actress whom millions came to identify with for her role as divorced mom Ann Romano on the long-running sitcom “One Day at a Time,” has died. She died Friday at her home in Los Angeles due to complications from pancreatic cancer, family members said. She was 69. Her family had announced she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September. Franklin was a veteran stage and television performer before “One Day At a Time” made her a star. Developed by Norman Lear and co-created by Whitney Blake, the series was groundbreaking for its focus on a young divorced mother seeking independence from a suffocating marriage.

Boyle switches to acting

First lady: Criticism expected Michelle Obama says it was “absolutely not surprising” to her that her satellite appearance at the Academy Awards ceremony provoked a national conversation about whether it was appropriate, after some conservative critics accused her of selfishly crashing the event in an attempt to upstage it. She attributed the chatter to a culture shift that has spawned legions of bloggers, tweeters and others who talk about anything and everything all the time. “Shoot, my bangs set off a national conversation. My shoes can set off a national conversation. That’s just sort of where we are. We’ve got a lot of talking going on,” the first lady said only somewhat jokingly Thursday before an appearance in Chicago, her hometown. “It’s like everybody’s kitchen-table conversation is now accessible to everybody else so there’s a national conversation about anything.” In what was not the first-ever Oscar appearance by a first lady, Mrs. Obama was beamed live from the White House into Sunday’s ceremony in Los Angeles to unseal the envelope and announce that the night’s final award, for Best Picture, would go to “Argo.” In 2002, Laura Bush appeared at the ceremony on videotape. Americans have long been fascinated by their first ladies, scrutinizing everything from their clothes and hair to the issues they promote and how they raise their children. Mrs. Obama acknowledged that she and President Barack Obama have added appeal, and perhaps sometimes are subject to extra scrutiny, because they are the first black family in the White House but also a young couple (she turned 49 last month; he’s 51) with young children (daughters Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14).

Susan Boyle is making her bigscreen acting debut in a Christmasthemed British period drama.

Authorities say the bassist for country music star Toby Keith has been killed in a two-car crash in Oklahoma.

Keith said in a statement that he’s “deeply saddened” by Goff’s death. Keith says Goff was a close friend for more than 25 years, serving as band leader and bass player.

CL’s Boll sticks up for his role CHICAGO – The family videos made a return to the small screen during Christmas. As he sat in front of the TV, Jared Boll watched a much younger version of himself skate with his two brothers on the frozen surface of Crystal Lake. The real-time Boll was 26 years old and approaching his sixth season with the Columbus Blue Jackets, making him the team’s longesttenured player. The Jared Boll family-video Boll was maybe 3 years old as he shuffled across the lake on his ice skates. Back then, his father joked, Jared could skate better than he could walk. “Yeah, probably,” Boll said with a smile Friday as he prepared to play the Blackhawks at the United Center. “I don’t remember how good of a walker I was, but I remember being a pretty decent skater from when I first got out there.” No one could have guessed that Boll’s skates would take him this far. To the Blue Jackets, Boll is a valuable veteran leader who protects each of his teammates because of his intimidating presence on the ice. To the rest of the league, Boll is a fearless fighter who does not back down from any challenge. To those who know him best, Boll is the humble kid who grew up in Crystal Lake and spent two years at Prairie Ridge before pursuing his dream to play hockey. His journey took him to Lincoln, Neb., and then to Plymouth, Mich., before Columbus selected him in the fourth round of the 2005 NHL entry draft. Yet Boll’s style of play faces an uncertain future. Head injuries have become a hot topic at all levels of sports as researchers learn more about the long-term effects of concussions and repeated blows to the head.

RUNNING INTO TROUBLE Speedy Rolling Meadows races past Huntley, into title game By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO NORMAL – The Huntley girls basketball team learned quickly the dangers of engaging in a running, fast-paced game against Rolling Meadows. The Red Raiders tried to slow things More from down by running Normal an efficient halfcourt offense, but Northwest Herald the Mustangs wore sports writer Meghan down Huntley. Rolling Meadows Montemurro reflects pushed the ball on Huntley’s debut in in the second half the state semifinals. PAGE C2 and Huntley never recovered in a 61-44 loss in the Class 4A state semifinal at Redbird Arena. Huntley plays Whitney Young in the third place game at 6:30 p.m. today. “I really thought the two halves mirrored each other in a sense,” Huntley coach Steve Raethz said. “We got in foul trouble in both halves and at the same time, [Rolling Meadows] made two decisive runs there in the first half and the second half that extended their lead. Only thing was, we weren’t able to create our own run the second half.” Foul trouble prevented Raethz from keeping his best lineup on the court. Senior guard Haley Ream picked up her fourth foul late in the third quarter, joining freshman forward Ali Andrews on the bench after she also was whistled her fourth foul with 20 seconds left in the third. Ali Andrews eventually fouled out with a team-high 14 points with 4:33 remaining. Sam Andrews and Bethany Zornow finished with 13 and 10 points, respectively.

CL Central wins; Hinkle era ends By JOE STEVENSON ALGONQUIN – With everything on the line for Jacobs – a roster filled with seniors and a coach retiring after 49 years – Crystal Lake Central expected a bump or two in its road to the regional championship. The Tigers found those midway through the fourth quarter when Jacobs hacked the lead from 12 to five points, drawing chants from the Golden Eagles’ crowd of “It’s not over!” Central responded in a manner befitting its performances this season. The Tigers maintained their composure in the final four minutes for a 65-58 victory in the Class 4A Jacobs Regional boys basketball title game Friday at the Eagles’ Nest. “That team’s going to make a run with all the emotion they had,” Tigers coach Rich Czeslawski said. “I think they have 12 seniors, it’s [coach Jim] Hinkle’s last game at home, I mean, no lead was safe tonight. Even though we made things interesting at the free-throw line, for our guys to withstand that was really nice.”

It is the Tigers’ second regional title in three years, their first in Class 4A. Central built its lead to 51-39 late in the third quarter before Jacobs (18-15) chipped away. The Eagles cut it to 55-50 with 4:28 remaining, when Czeslawski called timeout. “I knew Jacobs was going to play an emotional game with Hinkle’s last game, we just had to bring a lot of energy tonight,” Central

forward Jake Vanscoyoc said. “I was a little concerned, we just had to play composed.” The Eagles could not get that close again. In the final minute, Central could breathe easier with the lead back to 10 points. “When it happened, we kept calm, coach called timeout, which was good and settled us down and talked about what we needed to work on,” center Kyle Fleck said. “Making smarter decisions and being careful with the ball.” Fleck led all players with 14 points, while Vanscoyoc scored all 13 of his in the first half. D.J. Thomas added 10 off the bench for the Tigers. “We gave it our best shot,” said Hinkle, who announced before the season he would retire. “Central did a great job on the offensive boards. Their ability to dominate the glass won the game for them. They’re a very good team. They’ll be a very good representative out of this regional. I’m really happy with our kids, they played hard.

While Huntley’s Class 4A state semifinal performance against Rolling Meadows will go down as a 61-44 loss, in no way does that fully explain – or give credit to – what the Red Raiders accomplished Friday night at Redbird Arena. Few people outside of Huntley believed the Red Raiders Haley Ream had a legitimate chance to knock off the Mustangs. Yet for three quarters Huntley showed why it ripped off five straight postseason wins to make its first appearance at state. Defensively, the Red Raiders held a team that entered averaging 69.8 points a game to one of its lowest outputs this season. Eighteen of those points came in the fourth, when Huntley was gassed and in foul trouble. Offensively, they managed to control the tempo most of the night and avoid turning the basketball game into a track meet. No, the score doesn’t tell the full story of a Huntley team that trailed by only two points at halftime and found itself tied with the Mustangs early in the third quarter. This was a Rolling Meadows unit that beat Cary-Grove by 50 points and Johnsburg by 39 points this season and scored more than 81 points eight times. “We can’t hang our heads,” senior guard Haley Ream said. “Playing for the championship game would be nice, but even to make it down here is a great opportunity, and third or fourth place is just as good. We’ve had the opportunity to play for two more weeks than everyone else got to play, so I think we just need to play our best. It’s going to be our last game together, win or lose.” Understandably, there’s disappointment that a state title is unattainable this season. Putting together a respectable and worthy effort doesn’t erase the pain of a tough loss. However, this should only fuel the fire in the seven Red Raiders that will return next season. That includes four of Huntley’s five starters, including juniors Sam Andrews and Bethany Zornow and freshman Ali Andrews. Of course, there are moments from Friday’s loss that will be hard to forget – the unforced turnovers that led to easy, fast-break points for Rolling Meadows or the missed, open looks. But the future is bright for Huntley. “The great thing about tomorrow is two teams get an opportunity to finish their season with a win and it’s something that we talked about in the locker room postgame,” Raethz said. “Let’s finish off our season with a win. This has been a great run and nothing should be taken away from us and what we’ve done and what we’ve accomplished so far.” • Write to Meghan Montemurro at mmontemurro@

The Woodstock boys basketball team celebrates Friday after defeating Woodstock North, 64-29, to win the Class 3A Woodstock North Regional championship.


Streaks break through Woodstock wins first regional title since 2000 By PATRICK MASON

Scoreboard WOODSTOCK–Woodstockhadn’t won a regional boys basketball title since 2000. So coach Al Baker wasn’t afraid to take a chance. Along with his two captains, Jordan Turner and Andy Buhrow, Baker had decided to change from the Blue Streaks’ safe, comfortable 2-3 zone defense to a man-to-man defense they hadn’t played since December. “I’ll tell you what. I didn’t sleep a wink [Thursday night],” Baker said after his team won the Class 3A Woodstock North Regional title over Woodstock North, 64-29. Woodstock will play Rockford Lutheran at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Freeport Sectional semifinals. “The team bought into it and we had probably one of our best practices of the year [Thursday] and it transferred over.” The opening few minutes of the Woodstock rivalry game looked as if it was being played in fast-forward. Both defenses were pressing and attacking the ball and players were colliding as aggressive screens were being set. The Thunder struck first after almost three minutes of scoreless basketball. Nick Herscha scored on a layup from a slick pass in the lane from point guard Josh Jandron, which set the Thunder student section off. It was short-lived, however, as Woodstock’s Jordan Turner connected on a 3-pointer and held up

Friday’s championship No. 1 Woodstock 64, No. 2 Woodstock North 29

Woodstock will face Rockford Lutheran in a semifinal of the Freeport Sectional at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday three fingers to the home crowd as he jogged back for defense. His 3 started a 12-0 run which had plenty of the new defense and gave the Blue Streaks (19-10) enough confidence and momentum to cruise for the big victory. “It means a lot to us and to be able to accomplish this means so much to our school and our community,” said Jordan Turner, who scored a game-high 18 points. “It was crazy in here. We came in excited and when we came out showing a man-to-man that gave us even more energy. Then we matched our defensive showing with our offense and I think it confused them and what they wanted to do.” Twelve players scored for the Blue Streaks, who pulled their starters with 5:04 remaining in the fourth quarter to a standing ovation from a sea of blue-and-whiteclad fans. The student section and rest of the crowd were loud all game. At one point in the third quarter, the players played through the whistle, which was drowned out by the

crowd’s cheers as Blue Streaks’ Damian Stoneking recorded two blocks in a row. The 6-foot-7 center finished with eight points, seven blocks and seven rebounds. “It means everything to us and it’s great to see the fans so happy,” Stoneking said. “I just try to do everything for my team. I don’t worry about my stats at the end of the game I just worry about getting everyone pumped up and playing our hearts out.” The Thunder (10-19) just couldn’t get anything going, in part because of Stoneking’s disruptive ways underneath the basket and also because of a lack of energy. “We came out and we were too tentative and very tight,” Thunder coach Steve Ryan said. “I look up at the scoreboard and see we gave up 24 points at half. That’s fine, but offensively we just didn’t execute. We were trying to do way too much with the basketball and we weren’t playing together or doing the things that we have been all year long.” Herscha scored a team-high 10 points for the Thunder. “I don’t think so,” Baker said when asked if he had ever seen a crowd as big as the one Friday night. “Just before the five starters went out for the tip-off, I pulled them aside and I turned around and pointed into the stands and said, ‘The last thing you think about before that ball goes up in the air, think of them and I want you to play hard for them.’ That’s just been a huge part of this season for us.”

ALGONQUIN – Fifty seconds remained in the fourth quarter Friday when Crystal Lake Central’s student section started organizing itself. The Tigers’ boys basketball team led Jacobs by eight in the Class 4A Jacobs Regional title game, and while the game wasn’t over, Central’s fan base could have started cheering for the Tigers’ impending 65-58 victory and Jim Hinkle advancement to the DeKalb Sectional semifinal against Boylan. Instead, they turned to face a man on the opposing bench, whose 49-year coaching career was ending. The chanting started quietly, but escalated quickly. “Hinkle, Hinkle.” Friday’s win belonged to Central, but the night belonged to Jim Hinkle, the Hall of Fame Jacobs coach. “It felt like one big family,” said Jacobs senior Nick Ledinsky of the atmosphere during the final minute of Hinkle’s coaching tenure. “It meant a lot when both teams started cheering for Hinkle. They have a lot of respect for the man, and so does our team. So do I.” Twenty-two seconds remained when the Golden Eagles’ student section started paying its respects to Hinkle, who spent 17 of his 49 coaching years at Jacobs. As the “Thank you, Hinkle,” cheers echoed through the gym, the man with the whip-smart one-liners and quick laugh crossed his arms, turned his face toward the bench and shook his head. The tears were there. Hinkle called the final timeout of his career with 7.9 seconds left. He drew up a trapping play, holding out hope for a comeback, a chance to coach another game. In 49 years, Hinkle had learned 7.9 seconds is a lot of time in basketball – enough to make what seems impossible happen. Friday, the comeback Hinkle saw many times didn’t materialize. With 2 seconds left, Central guard Corban Murphy tossed the ball up in the air in celebration. By the time it hit the floor, the buzzer had sounded. It was over. About 15 minutes after the game, Hinkle talked about the 1975 regional he won with Chester High School, which didn’t win another one until last week. He talked about how priceless it was to win the 1985 conference title when he was at Dundee-Crown. He’ll always treasure the four years he coached Johnny Moran, who graduated from Jacobs in 2008. And Hinkle will never forget his first regional title game with Jacobs in 1997, when the Eagles overcame a six-point deficit in the final minute and won on a buzzer-beating three-pointer. But it’s time, he said. Then, composing himself, Hinkle nodded. “I know it’s the right decision. And I’m comfortable with it.”

Red Raiders within 2 at halftime Tigers 7-0 in Jacobs’ gym • HUNTLEY Continued from page C1 The Red Raiders (26-7) could have fallen apart after Rolling Meadows (30-3) ended the first quarter on a 12-0 run. Huntley committed four turnovers and was held scoreless during the final 3:25 of the quarter. Rolling Meadows quickly pushed its lead to double digits in the opening minute of the second quarter on a pair of baskets by junior forward Jenny Vliet. Alexis Glasgow (16 points), Jackie Kemph (12 points) and Vliet (18 points) were as good as

advertised and too difficult to contain. “[Their speed] wasn’t surprising because we knew that they were going to be quick,” Sam Andrews said. “We knew we had to pick up our defense and stop their point guard [Kemph].” But the Red Raiders, sparked by Zornow’s two 3-pointers, kept chipping away at Rolling Meadows’ 21-11 lead. Sam Andrews and Ali Andrews combined to score 12 of the Red Raiders’ final 15 points in the second. Sam Andrews’ floater in the lane as the clock expired sent Huntley into the lock-

er room confident as they trailed 33-31 at halftime. As the game progressed, Rolling Meadows wore down Huntley. The Mustangs’ speed and their ability to get out on the fast break cost the Red Raiders. Although Ali Andrews’ layup a minute into the third tied the game at 33, Huntley, similar to the first quarter, struggled to score. The Red Raiders were held without a basket for more than five minutes during which they committed five turnovers and watched Rolling Meadows push its lead to eight points.

• CL CENTRAL Continued from page C1 13 boards. Will Schwerdtmann led Jacobs with 14 points and Chrishawn Orange added 12. “We wanted to keep attacking,” Jacobs forward Lake Ojo said. “They’re a pretty good team, lanky with good penetrators who can drive and kick. Their post players are good athletes. We’re kind of the same type of team, but they played better than us today.” Central’s section paid tribute to Hinkle by chanting his name in the final minute. Jacobs’ section chanted his name a few seconds later, with

Central’s joining in again. Czeslawski and Hinkle met at the start of the handshake line and spoke for a moment. “I told him he was everything that’s right about high school basketball and I’m going to miss him,” Czeslawski said. “I was emotional, it was hard. He’s such a good guy.” Central was 7-0 in the Eagles’ Nest this season, winning the Jacobs Holiday Classic in December, and now will try for its first sectional title since 1974. “It’s exciting,” Fleck said. “We have to go in and play with confidence and know we belong there. That’s the plan.”


Sycamore rallies past Hampshire By ANTHONY ZILIS BURLINGTON – Hampshire senior Tyler Crater found it hard to summon words Friday after the Whip-Purs’ boys basketball team lost, 51-44, Tyler Crater to Sycamore in the Class 3A Burlington Central Regional championship. “It was a good year, but there’s always that hump that

we couldn’t seem to get over,” Crater said quietly. “This would have been really good for the school.” After a Fox Valley Conference Fox Division co-champi-

onship earned Hampshire (236) a top seed in the regional, this was supposed to be the year for the Whips to earn their first regional title in nine years. Crater scored the first 11 points of the game, and the Whips sank two 3-pointers to open the second half to give Hampshire a 34-26 lead. But No. 2 seed Sycamore (19-10) answered with a 15-0 run, and Hampshire went more than six minutes without a field goal. “We couldn’t hit any shots,” coach Bob Barnett said. “We went on a long drought there.

It’s not that we didn’t have looks. We had looks. They just didn’t fall.” The Whips couldn’t whittle the Sycamore lead down to less than five in the fourth quarter, and again, they couldn’t make it through the regional. Crater scored 23 points, but only five came in the final 15 minutes of the game. “Tyler had a great game,” Barnett said. “I told him there’s nothing to be ashamed Rob Winner – about. This was a great year. It was probably one of the most Hampshire’s Michael Dumoulin draws a foul from Sycamore’s Devin enjoyable seasons I’ve had Mottet (left) before scoring Friday in the second quarter of the Class 3A Burlington Central Regional final in Burlington. with a group of kids.”

HAWKS HIT 21 Season-opening points streak extended The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Brent Seabrook scored on a 2-on-1 break at 3:23 of overtime and the Blackhawks extended their NHL-record, season-opening point streak to 21 games with a 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night. Jonathan Toews carried the puck down left wing and dished a cross-ice pass to Seabrook, who fired in a shot from the right circle before goalie Steve Mason could slide across the crease. Patrick Sharp and Bryan Bickell scored 59 seconds apart late in the second period, and Viktor Stalberg also connected in regulation for

Next for the Hawks Hawks at Detroit, 11:30 a.m, NBC, AM720 the Hawks (18-0-3), who won their eighth straight overall and has earned 39 out of a possible 42 points this season. Ray Emery made 19 saves for the win. Ryan Johansen scored with 7:37 left in regulation to tie it at 3 for Columbus, snapping his 37-game goal drought. Vinny Prospal and Artem Anisimov also had goals for

injury-depleted Columbus (512-4), which has a league-low 14 points. The Hawks posted their 10th consecutive win against the Blue Jackets, dating to Feb. 18, 2011. The Hawks also have a point in its past 26 regular-season games since a regulation loss on March 25, 2012, to Nashville. Mason stopped 31 shots as he faced the Hawks for the second time in less than a week. He made 26 saves in a 1-0 loss to the Hawks on Sunday. Anisimov scored in his first game after he missed three because of an upper-body injury. He was hurt in Detroit on Feb. 21 when his head struck the ice.

Boll: Fighting reduces cheap shots • MUSICK Continued from page C1 The NHL has cracked down on many hits to the head but continues to allow players to fight with bare fists, which seems to be a contradiction. Boll doesn’t see it that way. Because fighting is allowed, Boll said, fewer players take cheap shots at opponents. “I think it’s a great way for the players to police themselves,” Boll said. “You see games getting out of control, and two of the tough guys go out and fight, and it kind of settles everything down. “I think without it, guys might get hurt more.” Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards agreed. He watched a pair of lively fights, neither of which involved Boll, as he stood behind the bench during Friday’s game. “You’ve got other guys that, if they know they don’t have to fight, they will start taking liberties out on the ice,” Richards said. Boll has worked hard on all aspects of his game, but his first role is as an enforcer. In 366 NHL games, Boll has racked up 932 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-2, 219-pound winger has received 120 fighting majors in his career, including seven fighting majors in 21 games this season, according to In doing so, Boll has become something of a celebrity. Three seconds after the opening faceoff Jan. 21 against Detroit, Boll dropped the gloves against Red Wings forward Jordin Tootoo. The fight, in which Boll belted Tootoo with several right hands, has garnered almost 80,000 views on YouTube. “That’s pretty cool, but it’s not why I do it,” Boll said. Boll does it to protect all of his teammates. Skill guys, small guys, you name it. “It’s a role I enjoy doing,” Boll said. “I love sticking up for guys, whether it’s teammates or anyone – any of my friends or anything like that. I love them knowing that I have their back.” Richards said players such as Boll made his job easier. “From my standpoint as a coach – and having played for a long time – he comes across as a great teammate,” Richards said. “He’s somebody that sticks up for his team, sticks

up for his teammates, sticks up for himself. “He knows how to do it, too. He knows what to say, he knows when to do it, when he needs to step up and do something. It takes a lot of courage to do that. It takes a tremendous amount of courage. “I’ve got a lot of respect for Jared and how he plays the game.” It’s a tough way to play the game. Boll said he has had “a few” concussions. He knows that he could sufer more. The possible long-term effects of those injuries cross his mind from time to time. “Yeah, a little bit,” Boll said. “There’s definitely life after hockey. It’s not like once your career ends, everything’s over. So you want to protect yourself, for sure. “But it’s all part of the risk. You know what you’re getting yourself into playing this game – whether you’re fighting or not.”

Jordan targeted in paternity suit The ASSOCIATED PRESS ATLANTA – An Atlanta woman has filed a lawsuit saying basketball Hall of Famer and Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is the father of her teenage son. The lawsuit was filed Feb. 6 by Pamela Smith in Fulton County Superior Court. It requests Jordan take a paternity test, pay child sup- Michael port and share Jordan medical, dental and hospital costs that are not covered by insurance. The lawsuit also requests the boy’s last name be changed to Jordan, and for a judge to order the Georgia Department of Vital Records to issue him a new birth certificate. Publicist Estee Portnoy said Jordan had no comment and calls to Smith’s home and office were not immediately returned.

According to court documents, Smith does not have an attorney, and a court date is scheduled for March 12.

Magic Johnson makes $1 million offer to LeBron: At New York, Magic Johnson is giving LeBron James a million reasons to consider the slam dunk contest. The Hall of Famer said Friday during ESPN’s pregame show that he would put up $1 million if James finally entered the marquee event of AllStar Saturday night. James has always refused to enter the contest, but he’s recently been putting on a dunking show before Miami’s games, reigniting interest in seeing him take part. Johnson said: “Please LeBron, get in the dunk contest. I’m going to put up a million dollars. A million dollars to LeBron. Please get in the dunk contest. I go every year. I want to see you out there. A million to the winner.” The NBA currently pays $100,000 to the winner and $50,000 to the runner-up.

Bynum admits he may not play: At Philadelphia, Andrew Bynum’s latest setback may be the one that finally ends his season. Bynum admitted for the first time that he may not play for the Philadelphia 76ers because of swelling in his right knee. Bynum had been steadfast since training camp that he would eventually make his Sixers’ debut, even setting an All-Star break target date. Bynum backed off Friday because he still had swelling in his right knee from five-onfive drills last week. Bynum, an All-Star last season with the Lakers, refused to commit to a comeback. “It’s getting really late,” he said. “I don’t know.” Building around their 7-foot center, the Sixers (22-34) expected to contend for the Atlantic Division title and make a deep run in the playoffs. Without him, they have lost seven straight entering today’s game against Golden State and are well behind the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Samardzija goes 3 innings in loss The ASSOCIATED PRESS MESA, Ariz. – Right-hander Jeff Samardzija pitched out of enough trouble to get through three innings with the lead in the Cubs’ 6-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Samardzija – a candidate to start Opening Day at Pittsburgh on April 1 – walked three, including two when he loaded the bases with none out in the second inning, was making his second spring start and became the first Cubs pitcher to get through three innings. Cubs manager Dale Sveum has not named his Opening Day starter and said again Friday he plans to do that closer to the middle of the month. Right-handers Matt Garza, who has been slowed this

spring by a lateral strain, and Edwin Jackson, who pitches Sunday, are the other candidates. “Hopefully, I can just keep doing my work and see what happens,” said Samardzija, who last season made a successful transition from bullpen to starting rotation. “Today the splitter was a little off, but I thought I got some good work in and they put some good at-bats out there. I got out of a couple jams, and

that felt good, too.” Samardzija allowed a single and two walks to load the bases in the second, but a double play and strikeout limited the damage to one run allowed. “To get out of there with one run, especially with a two-run lead, that’s important,” he said. “You don’t want to be in those situations, but you’re going to be in those situations during the year, and when it happens, like today, you just take a deep breath and understand, ‘Let’s work on getting out of this situation so when it happens during the season, we have a little better idea how to do it. “You definitely will go back to those things and see how you got out of them.” Arizona starter Trevor Ca-

hill pitched two innings in his first start of the spring, allowing the first three batters he faced to reach in a two-run first before retiring the final six he faced. “I was just trying to throw strikes and get a feel for the game again,” Cahill said. “Just trying to get those cobwebs off and feel comfortable.” Former Cubs outfielder Tony Campana, who was traded to the Diamondbacks last month for two pitching prospects, came off the bench to deliver a two-run double to right in Arizona’s four-run sixth inning and later added a triple. “When you get rid of somebody like that, those things just seem to happen,” Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. “He’s been working hard in the cage on putting the bat on the ball.”

8SPORTS SHORTS Flacco has deal; Bears put franchise tag on Melton NEW YORK – The franchise tag for quarterbacks in 2013 will be $14.896 million. But the Baltimore Ravens no longer need worry about it because Joe Flacco agreed to a new deal with them on Friday. The NFL set the franchise tag at that figure earlier in the day. Then the Ravens prevented the Super Bowl MVP from reaching free agency beginning March 12 when, according to a person with knowledge of the contract, they reached a new deal with Flacco. The Bears used a franchise tag on defensive tackle Henry Melton.

NCAA hits Saint Mary’s basketball with penalties MORAGA, Calif. – One of the most powerful mid-major programs in college basketball has been found guilty of breaking some big-time rules. The NCAA put Saint Mary’s on four years of probation Friday for a “failure to monitor its men’s basketball program,” reducing scholarships and placing other penalties on the team after the governing body said the tiny Catholic college committed several recruiting violations. A report by the NCAA Committee on Infractions found that Gaels coach Randy Bennett “failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance,” particularly over the recruiting practices of a former assistant. Bennett will not be allowed to recruit off campus and will be suspended for the first five West Coast Conference games next season.

U.S. Speedskating eyes sexual abuse allegations U.S. Speedskating began an investigation Friday into the report of a female skater accusing former Olympian and organization president Andy Gabel of sexual abuse in the 1990s. Bridie Farrell told public radio station WUWM in Milwaukee that she had sexual contact with Gabel repeatedly over several months in 1997 and 1998 while both were training in New York and Michigan. When the alleged abuse began, she was 15 and Gabel was 33. The Chicago Tribune quoted Gabel on its website Friday. “Almost two decades ago I displayed poor judgment in a brief, inappropriate relationship with a female teammate,” Gabel told the Tribune. “It did not include sex, however I know what happened was wrong, and I make no excuses for my behavior. I apologize to her, and I am sorry for bringing negative attention to the sport that I love.” The national governing body said it was not previously aware of any allegations against Gabel.

White Sox center fielder Blake Tekotte crashes into the wall while chasing a double by the Cleveland Indians’ Mark Reynolds in the fifth inning of a spring training game Friday in Goodyear, Ariz.


Solid first start for Sale By ALAN ESKEW The Associated Press GOODYEAR, Ariz. – Even though he was effective, Chris Sale wasn’t comfortable. In his first spring training appearance of the year, the 17game winner struck out three over 2 1⁄ 3 scoreless innings Friday as the White Sox lost to the Cleveland Indians, 9-7. Sale gave up a one-out single to Lou Marson and a walk to Mark Reynolds before getting Carlos Santana to hit into a forceout and retiring Mike Aviles on a flyout to deep center. Catcher Hector Gimenez went to the mound for a chat. “The first inning was kind of sporadic,” Sale said. “I felt like I was going a million miles an hour. Hector came out and said slow it down. He kind of got me back to where I was. Thanks to him, we pulled it out. I was

Next for the Sox Cincinnati at Sox, 2:05 p.m. today, AM-670

kind of jittery in the first.” Sale wound up allowing two hits – both singles – struck out one and walked none. “I’m very satisfied how it went,” he said. “Obviously, there is room for improvement on anything you do. This is a good building point, Day 1 out on the mound. Build from this and learn from it.” The Sox took a 4-0 lead against Justin Masterson, Cleveland’s Opening Day starter, who gave up six hits in 22⁄3 innings. Dayan Viciedo homered leading off the second and, two batters

later, Brent Morel hit a two-run drive. Gimenez added an RBI single in the third. A 3-for-3 day increased his exhibition average to .714 (5 for 7). “The sinker is the one they hit,” Masterson said. “They were all elevated sinkers. I threw some good ones. When I got on top, you could see them, they were diving nicely. “When they were good, you could see the guys swing over the top. It’s nice to see those mixed in, the good ones. We’re close. We’ve still got a month.” Left-hander Scott Kazmir, who pitched in the independent Atlantic League last year, struck out three and allowed one hit while pitching shutout ball in the fourth and fifth innings. The two-time All-Star, with the Indians on a minor league contract, has not pitched in the major leagues since April 2011.


Fan celebrations take center court By AARON BEARD The Associated Press With so many upsets in college basketball, there seems to be daily highlights of fans storming the court to celebrate. No team has separated itself from the pack and there have been 15 instances when top-five teams in the Associated Press Top 25 poll lost to unranked squads on the road, according to STATS LLC. That’s led to a lot of postgame mayhem – and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said it’s not all fun and games when it happens. He would know. His thirdranked Blue Devils have lost on the road to start court-storming celebrations four times this year, including Thursday when his team had to battle through the surge at Virginia. The coach said afterward that fans should celebrate, but the focus should be getting the visiting team off the court first. “Put yourself in a position with one of our players or coaches,” Krzyzewski said. “I’m not saying anybody did this, but the potential is there all the time for a fan to come up to you and say, ‘Coach, you’re a ... .” Or push you or hit you. What do you do? What if you

Fans celebrate Virginia’s win over Duke on Thursday by storming the court in Charlottesville, Va. Virginia won, 73-68. did something? That would be the story, right? So we deserve that type of protection.” There had been only seven instances in each of the past two seasons in which AP top-five teams lost to unranked teams on the road. But the past week has shown just how wild this season has been by comparison. First No. 5 Miami – ranked No. 2 at the time – lost at Wake Forest last weekend. Then top-ranked Indiana lost at Minnesota on Tuesday. The next night, No. 4 Michi-

gan fell to a Penn State team that was 0-14 in Big Ten play. And in each of those cases, fans gathered around the edges of the court to count off the final seconds before charging in to celebrate at the sound of the horn. While BCS conferences typically leave it to host schools to manage postgame celebrations, the Southeastern Conference fines its members when fans storm the court. The fines range from $5,000 for the first offense, $25,000 for the second and $50,000 for a third.

CL Central grad Groat climbs coaching ladder When Crystal Lake Central graduate Neil Groat planned his baseball future as a youth, it included a number of options, except one. “Growing up in Crystal Lake, I didn’t think I’d ever spend any time in Arkansas,” the 30-year-old Groat said. Since graduating from Central, Groat has spent all of the past 11 years in Conway, Ark., at NCAA Division III Hendrix College, where he became the baseball team’s head coach this spring. “It’s a great opportunity to be a head coach at such a young age,” he said. Groat spent four seasons as an infielder at Hendrix and the past seven years as an assistant coach and the team’s recruiting coordinator, where he learned plenty about the team’s roster. “I’ve recruited every kid in our program, so those relationships I’ve had with them sometimes go back to their junior year in high school,” he said. Familiarity with the players has helped Groat’s transition into his new role. “I think they were pretty happy (when I was hired), but maybe they lied,” Groat joked. Being a former Hendrix player also has helped in the transition at the school, which Groat said has students from 42 states and 11 countries. “Hendrix is very intense academically,” Groat said. “The average ACT score is 29. Our studentathletes put in some serious classroom time. I did that. It gives me a level of understanding about what they’re going through.” Although winning on the field is a priority, Groat said seeing his players succeed academically is just as important. Groat recalled telling one former player and his family during recruiting that the athlete could earn a Hendrix science degree and go on to medical school while playing baseball. Four years later, that player informed Groat on the day he was accepted to med school. “That was pretty cool,” Groat said. Hendrix is 4-6 this season, its first in the Southern Athletic Association. Groat said his team will have “a workman’s mentality. We want to be blue collar.” Groat credits that style of play to two of his former coaches at Central, Jeff Aldridge and Rich Czeslawski. “They are Central alums and really helped instill in our teams that we were playing for a school and not for ourselves individually,” Groat said. “That’s something I really appreciate now that I’m coaching at my alma mater.” Roosevelt paces CCAC: Roosevelt University’s women’s basketball team is among a record five schools from the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference to qualify for the NAIA Division II national tournament. Jacobs grad Maria Tamburrino, a junior forward, earned first-team All-CCAC recognition after averaging 14.3 points and a team-high 8.2 rebounds. She scored a team-best 17 points in the CCAC Tournament championship game to lead the eighthranked Lakers (27-6) to a 69-64 win against Cardinal Stritch (26-7), which got eight assists from Crystal Lake South grad Caitlin Mize. Tamburrino and the Lakers, who also won the league’s regular-season title, is a No. 2 national seed and will face Friends University on Wednesday. Sixth-seeded Cardinal Stritch opens play in the 32team national tournament Thursday. Junior guard Liz Bart (Cary-Grove), who ranks fourth in NAIA with 97 made three-pointers and averages 11 points a game, helped Olivet Nazarene (23-8) to a No. 6 seed and a first-round meeting Wednesday with Concordia of Michigan. St. Xavier (24-6), a No. 5 seed, will face St. Thomas on Thursday. Hampshire grad Chrissy Heine averages 8.2 points and 3.6 rebounds for SXU. Purdue Calumet (21-9) also advanced to postseason play. Irish standouts: Cary-Grove grad Carly Loeffel won All-Big East Conference honors in the pentathlon while helping Notre Dame win the league’s women’s indoor track and field team title last weekend. Loeffel, a sophomore for the Irish, compiled 3,915 points, 12 behind the event champion, Pittsburgh’s Elizabeth Kline. Loeffel’s second-place finish helped ND post a school-record 141 points as a team to win the meet. Fellow C-G grad and Notre Dame men’s middle distance runner Eddy Gibbons scored in two events, helping the 4x800 relay team to a fourth-place finish in 7:33.77 and running to seventh in the 1,000 in 2:31.90. Gibbons helped ND’s men’s team place second behind Connecticut. Gibbons ran a personal-best time of 2:26.04 in the prelims, the second-fastest time of the meet. Czlapinski best in Midwest: Marengo grad Becca Czlapinski swept the Midwest Collegiate Conference’s top two women’s bowling awards last month, winning the league’s Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year honors. A freshman at NAIA St. Ambrose University, Czlapinski finished the regular season with a 187.6 average in 49 games. She produced four top-25 finishes for the Bees, including a top-five finish and two top 10s in tournament play. Record-setter Udrenaite: D-III Concordia Chicago track and field athlete Kamile Udrenaite won the shot put and set a school record in the 20-pound weight throw at last weekend’s Northern Athletics Conference women’s indoor track and field championships. Udrenaite threw the shot put 38 feet, 6¾ inches for the victory. The Crystal Lake South grad finished third in the weight throw by topping her own school record with a toss of 47-1. • Barry Bottino writes a weekly column and a blog about local college athletes for the Northwest Herald.

McIlroy leaves; Guthrie leads By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Rory McIlroy left before his round was even over. Tiger Woods had to rally just to stick around. And with all that drama Friday in the Honda Classic, hardly anyone noticed that Luke Guthrie showed off his potential in a big way with a 7-under-par 63 to take a one-shot lead going into the weekend at PGA National. Guthrie, pegged by many of his peers as a rookie worth watching going into the year, played bogeyfree on another cool, cloudy day. Of his seven birdies, perhaps the most impressive for the Big Ten champion from Illinois came on the sixth hole when he had mud on the side of his ball and was able to work the shot in from the right to about 10 feet. After finishing his round, he walked into an interview room when someone mentioned that McIlroy walked off the course after being 7-over par through eight holes. “I had no clue,” Guthrie said. “I was just kind of going about my business out there.” He was at 9-under 131 and had a one-shot lead over Michael Thompson. McIlroy, who missed the cut in Abu Dhabi and lost in the first round of the Match Play Championship in his previous two starts, made a double bogey on his second hole and rinsed two balls in the water on the 16th hole on his way to a triple bogey. He hit his approach to the 18th in the water and never finished the hole.

Luke Guthrie sizes up his shot as he prepares to hit out of a bunker on the ninth hole Friday during the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. He shook hands with Ernie Els and Mark Wilson and was on his way, but not before conflicting messages. McIlroy told three reporters who followed him to his car that it was nothing physical but that he was “not in a good place mentally.” An hour later, he released a statement through his management company that he couldn’t concentrate because of a sore wisdom tooth. Woods looked as if he might join him. After mixing birdies with bogeys, Woods went bunker-to-bunker, over the green, short of the green and wound up with a double bogey on the 13th hole that put him one shot under the cut line with five holes to play. Instead of the second straight

week when No. 1 and No. 2 were gone early, Woods answered with a shot into 5 feet for birdie, a 6-foot par putt on the 16th hole, a par save from the back bunker on the 17th that was easier than it looked, and a par save from near the grandstand by the 18th green that was harder than it looked. He wound up with another 70 to make the cut on the number, nine shots out of the lead. “I didn’t quite have my game like I did yesterday,” Woods said. “I hit it much better yesterday, but I putted better today, so it all evened out.” Also having a tough time was tennis star Serena Williams, following in Woods’ large gallery. She took a picture of the 14-time major champion after his tee shot on the 17th and was scolded by security. The PGA Tour does not allow photos on competition days. “Apparently u can’t take pics. This security ... yelled at me,” she tweeted. A few minutes later, she posted the photo. And she finished with one last tweet: “In my Defense peeps always take pics of tennis players.” There was no reason to get a snapshot of Camilo Villegas, who joined a dubious list of PGA Tour players who went from first-toworst. Villegas, playing primarily on sponsor exemptions this year because he lost his full status, opened with a 64 for his best start in more than a year. The Colombian was 13 shots worse Friday in a round of 77 that caused him to miss the cut. The last player to do that was Jim Renner at the Travelers Championship in 2011.

‘Technology arm’ ScholarBuys partners with academic consortia By SARAH SUTSCHEK CARPENTERSVILLE – As many successful businesses often do, ScholarBuys started in a basement. And as many successful businesses have had to do in recent years, ScholarBuys has flourished despite a tanked economy. It started up in fall 2007, just as the recession kicked in. Co-founders Matt Ryan of Huntley and Bob Smith of Elmhurst had worked together previously in software licensing, but were let go by that company. “Bob had a baby on the way and I had a 6-month-old at home,” Ryan said. “It was definitely a scary time, but you’ve got to take some risk to reap the rewards, and it’s definitely worked out for us.” ScholarBuys partners with academic consortia throughout the country and negotiates agreements with technology publishers. “Our primary focus is higher-education independent colleges,” said Ryan, who serves as vice president of operations and marketing. “We outfit their entire campus with licensing for products, such as Microsoft and Adobe.” Reasons for growth include a partnerships with North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities, and the Federation of Independent Illinois Colleges. “We’re kind of their technology arm,” Smith said. He is the company’s vice president of sales. “We work with manufacturers to recognize these schools that all share a common bond.” This allows for special pricing that the schools would not receive on their own, he said. The fact that the business started during a poor economy was advantageous in that schools are trying to save money in any way possible to stretch their budgets, Ryan said. “We pretty much were confident that if we went ahead with this plan, we’d be in good shape,” he said. “We started out in my basement and we

All of us have at least a bachelor’s degree.” Smith said they’ve been able to watch their employees grow alongside the company, buying homes in the area. ScholarBuys started in Ryan’s basement, but has moved around a few places and landed in a much better-suited space in the Otto Engineering building on Main Street in Carpentersville. They don’t plan to move anytime soon. “I think there’s room to grow here,” Ryan said. “With what Otto has done to the downtown area, they made it attractive to stay.”

Best Buy fourth-quarter loss narrows The Associated Press NEW YORK – Best Buy Co. lost less money in the fourth quarter as efforts by new CEO Hubert Joly to make the company more efficient showed glimmers of paying off. The struggling electronics chain also said Friday that it did not receive a buyout bid from its co-founder Richard Schulze by the deadline Thursday, ending one question mark that had been hovering over the Minneapolis company. The retailer’s fourth-quarter re-

sults beat expectations, but Best Buy gave a cautious outlook on the first quarter because it is ramping up investments and the timing of some sales has changed from last year. Best Buy has been working to turn around results as it faces tough competition from online retailers and discounters. The company has cut jobs, invested in training employees and started matching online prices. Results show that the changes are beginning to help. U.S. revenue in stores open at least 14 months rose 0.9 percent, the

best performance in 11 quarters, Joly pointed out in an interview with the AP. Earlier this week Minneapolisbased Best Buy announced 400 job cuts at its headquarters as part of a $725 million cost-cutting plan. On Friday the company said it expects to announce more job cuts later this year. The company also said it plans $700 million to $800 million in capital spending and $150 million to $200 million in other expenses in fiscal 2014 as it invests in its business, mainly online and mobile channels.


STOCKS CLOSE OUT VOLATILE WEEK NEW YORK– Stocks edged higher on Wall Street Friday, closing out a volatile week, as an upturn in manufacturing outweighed the threat of looming cuts to government spending. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 35 points at 14,089, overcoming an early loss of 116 points. Big swings have come back to the stock market over the past week following relatively calm trading in January and most of February. The automatic budget cuts, worries over how soon the Fed may wind down its economic stimulus and Italy’s inconclusive elections have made trading more volatile. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose three to 1,518. The Nasdaq rose nine to 3,169. Four stocks rose for every three that fell on the New York Stock Exchange. Trading volume was average, 3.7 billion shares.

8BUSINESS ROUNDUP Consumer spending up 0.2 percent in January WASHINGTON – U.S. consumers increased spending modestly in January but cut back on major purchases that signal confidence in the economy. The decline in spending on goods suggests higher tax rates that kicked in on Jan. 1 may have made consumers more cautious. The Commerce Department said Friday that consumer spending rose 0.2 percent in January compared with December. The gain was driven by an increase in spending on services, partly reflecting higher heating bills. Spending on durable goods, such as cars and appliances, fell 0.8 percent. Spending on non-durable goods, such as clothing, was essentially flat. Income plunged 3.6 percent in January, the biggest drop since January 1993. But it followed a 2.6 percent rise in December, which reflected a rush by companies to pay dividends and bonuses before income taxes increased on top earners. After-tax income fell 4 percent in January and after having risen 2.7 percent in December. Part of the January drop reflected higher Social Security taxes. Americans adjusted to higher taxes by saving less. The savings rate declined to 2.4 percent of after-tax income in January, down from 6.4 percent in December and the lowest in five years.

Construction spending down 2.1 percent WASHINGTON – Spending on U.S. construction projects fell in January by the largest amount in 18 months as home construction stalled and spending on government projects fell to the lowest level in more than six years. The dip was viewed as a temporary setback with construction expected to keep moving higher this year. Construction spending fell 2.1 percent in January compared with December, when spending had risen 1.1 percent. It was the biggest one-month decline since July 2011, the Commerce Department said Friday. Residential construction, which has been leading the rebound in building, stalled in January with no gain in activity following a 1.7 percent rise in December.

McDonald’s getting rid of menu items

Northwest Herald /

Chrysler, VW, GM report sales growth By DEE-ANN DURBIN and TOM KRISHER AP Auto Writers

The Associated Press

DETROIT – Tax increases. Rising gas prices. Political dysfunction in Washington. None of that kept Americans away from auto dealer showrooms in February as General Motors, Ford and other automakers posted strong sales gains. Industry analysts expect last month’s sales to be up about 7 percent from a year earlier as pent-up demand and cheap financing kept the U.S. auto sales recovery powering along. But while sales for 2013 are expected to top last year’s figures, monthly increases are likely to be smaller than the double-digit gains the industry regularly posted during the last two years as sales recovered from historic lows following the recession. GM sales rose 7 percent, while Ford’s increased 9 percent. Chrysler and Volkswagen also reported increases, but both slowed from the torrid pace of the past two years. Chrysler sales were up 4 percent over a year earlier, while VW sales were up 3 percent. Toyota sales were up just over 4 percent. Of the major automakers, only Nissan was down. Its sales were off almost 7 percent from a record February of 2012. GM’s sales were the best since February of 2008, led by the Chevrolet Silverado pickup with an increase of 29 percent. Kurt McNeil, the company’s U.S. sales chief, said the recovery in new home construction is helping to boost the economy and pickup sales. When home construction thrives, businesses tend to invest more to replace vehicles. The average age

NEW YORK – McDonald’s is getting rid of its Chicken Selects and Fruit & Walnut Salad and is considering the removal of Angus burgers. The changeup comes as the world’s biggest hamburger chain plans to step up the number of limited-time menu items in the year ahead. Most recently, the chain introduced its Fish McBites. It plans to introduce McWrap chicken sandwiches with lettuce, tomato and cucumber and a choice of three sauces later this year. The McWrap sandwiches will be larger than the chain’s Snack Wraps. The Oak Brook-based company said in an emailed statement that it is “evaluating options as it relates to the Angus Third Pounders,” which were introduced in 2009. The Selects chicken fingers were introduced in 2004 and the Fruit & Walnut Salad was introduced in 2005. Earlier this week, the Kentucky New Era quoted a McDonald’s franchisee’s Facebook post noting the discontinuation of the three items. “Sorry if one of these were your favorite, they just did not sell well enough nationally,” the site quoted McEnaney Enterprises as saying. That post has since been removed. After years of outperforming rivals, McDonald’s has been struggling as competitors including Burger King and Wendy’s step up their marketing and menu offerings. Fast-food chains are also fighting to attract customers at a time when people are being more careful about where they spend their money. In a shakeup late last year, McDonald’s ousted the head of its U.S. business. The move came after a key sales figure dropped for the first time in nearly a decade. CEO Don Thompson, who took the top spot this summer, has said the company has a strong pipeline of new items for 2013.

Jordan Kenyon works on the assembly line during a media tour before an investment and jobs announcement event at the Chrysler transmission plant in Kokomo, Ind. Chrysler says its sales for February 2013 rose 4 percent from a year ago for the company’s best February since 2008. of a U.S. pickup truck is just over 11 years. Ford also reported strong sales of its F-Series pickups, up 15 percent. The company also posted record February totals for the Escape SUV and Fusion sedan. Fusion sales were up 28 percent and Escape sales rose 29 percent. Together, the Escape and Fusion made up more than a quarter of Ford’s monthly sales. Ford also said it plans to increase North American production by 9 percent in the second quarter compared with the second quarter of 2012. At Chrysler, which reported a 21

percent sales increase for all of last year, the growth slowdown was expected. CEO Sergio Marchionne has warned that first-quarter sales would decline, largely because the company stopped making the Jeep Liberty midsize SUV as it prepares a factory in Toledo, Ohio, to build a replacement model. The new Jeep Cherokee is expected to hit showrooms in the summer. Still, the company reported its 35thstraight month of year-over-year sales gains. Volkswagen reported its best February since 1973, but sales were far off

the pace of VW’s 31 percent increase last year. Toyota reported strong sales of the RAV4 small SUV and Avalon large car. Auto industry analysts say that higher Social Security taxes, rising gas prices and debate in Washington over government spending cuts weren’t enough to keep buyers away from showrooms. “I think these little speed bumps aren’t big enough to slow down the momentum right now,” said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting for LMC Automotive, an industry consulting firm. Schuster and other analysts say there are plenty of reasons to buy cars: • People need to replace aging cars. Pent-up demand is driving sales, as is the expiration of two- and three-year leases. • Interest rates are at historic lows, and credit is more readily available. • Hiring has picked up, giving people more money to spend. Hourly pay has risen faster than inflation the past three months. • Many automakers have exciting new vehicles to choose from, both trucks and fuel-efficient small cars. Schuster says sales probably hit an annual rate of 15.2 million cars and trucks in February, which is normally a lackluster sales month. The TrueCar. com auto pricing site predicts 15.7 million, which would be the best February performance since 2007. Sales are still short of the recent peak of near 17 million in 2005, but they’re healthy now compared with the anemic 10.4 million recorded in 2009.

Factories grow at fastest pace since June 2011 By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON – U.S. manufacturing expanded in February at the fastest pace since June 2011, buoyed by increases in new orders and production. The third straight month of growth suggests factories may help the economy this year after slumping through most of 2012. The Institute for Supply Management said Friday that its index of factory activity rose last month to 54.2, up from January’s reading of 53.1. A reading above 50 indicates expansion. The ISM is a trade group of purchasing managers. A measure of new orders rose to the highest level since April 2011. Factories added jobs, the report said, but

at a slower pace than the previous month. The pickup in factory activity in February is encouraging because it suggests demand for goods is stronger even as consumers are paying higher Social Security taxes, which has reduced their take-home pay. That comes after a separate report Friday showed consumers cut back spending on long-lasting manufactured goods in January, likely because of the higher taxes. Factory output could rise in the coming months. In January, businesses ramped up their orders for industrial machinery, electrical equipment and other capital goods by the most in more than a year. That suggested they are confident about their future growth.

Consumer confidence rebounded in February after a steep fall the previous month. The recovery in confidence suggests a better job market and a sustained housing recovery could offset some of the pain from higher taxes. One concern is $85 billion in government spending cuts that are set to take effect Friday. Those cuts will force the Defense Department and other agencies to buy fewer goods, which could weigh on manufacturers. Consumer spending may remain weak for several more months because of the tax increase. And an ongoing recession in Europe is likely to hold back exports to that region. Industrial production fell in January after two months of increases, the Federal Reserve said. Much of the decline reflected a big drop in auto pro-

duction that was likely temporary. With sales rising, production will likely rebound in February. The economy expanded at only a 0.1 percent annual rate in the OctoberDecember quarter, the government said Thursday. That was the slowest growth in nearly two years. Still, economists said the weakness in the fourth quarter was caused by temporary factors - deep defense spending cuts and slower restocking by companies. They expect growth will rebound to a rate of around 2 percent in the current January-March quarter. They note that residential construction, consumer spending and business investment — core drivers of growth — all improved in the fourth quarter.

John Ruskin, who died in 1900, was an English art critic and philanthropist who also wrote on a wide range of subjects. He said, “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” Some people would not agree with that, especially those who live year-round in a warm climate. But at the bridge table, sometimes the weather looks inclement with bad suit breaks, but occasionally the sun still shines. In today’s deal, how should South play in three no-trump after West leads the heart king? In this auction, South’s two-diamond advance was forcing for one round. (I like this agreement. If two diamonds is nonforcing, South has to cue-bid two hearts first with all good hands. I prefer a cue-bid to promise support for partner’s suit.) On the second round, South took a shot at the nine-trick game, hoping partner had something in spades (or that West would not lead that suit). Notice that five diamonds goes

down on the likely heart lead. South, in a sunny mood, thought he could see 10 easy tricks: two spades, one heart and seven diamonds. After taking his heart ace, declarer cashed his diamond ace and saw scudding dark clouds when West discarded a club. However, he paused and realized that it would not rain as long as he unblocked dummy’s 10. Then South led a spade to dummy’s king, cashed the ace, played a diamond to his nine, and claimed an overtrick.

TODAY - Your possibilities for achieving success in the year ahead will be greatly enhanced through proper planning and the right colleagues. Before making any major moves, establish what you want, how to do it and with whom. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- One of your greatest assets is your ability to effectively communicate with others regarding difficult subjects. You’ll be good at disseminating information and retaining it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It’s good to be optimistic about a joint endeavor that you’re considering, but keep your expectations reasonable and realistic. Don’t get carried away by pie-in-the-sky prognostications. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You could badly need some information from others today, so it pays to be a good listener at all times. This is especially so when in the presence of someone who gets around. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- When your intentions are in proportion to your abilities, success is likely to follow. Don’t place demands on yourself that you’re not experienced enough to fulfill. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You’ll have what it takes to be a good organizer. You’ll not only know what to do and how to do it effectively, but you’ll be smart enough to know which person should handle each task. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Small details could take on unusual significance, particularly when it comes to domestic matters. Be sure that each person involved in a project pays appropriate attention to every tiny part. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Keep in mind that friends warmly welcome company when a person’s visit is brief. Remember this rule and follow it when putting in a personal appearance or even talking on the telephone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- A small but significantly profitable development could open up, in conjunction with an ongoing matter. However, first you must recognize it and then be clever enough to carry it off. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be sure to devote some time to a recreational activity that you thoroughly enjoy. Getting away from everyday happenings will refresh your outlook and make you more industrious. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you’re hoping to gather some information about a matter that’s none of your business but that you’re curious about, it’ll pay to ask indirect questions. Subtlety will pay off. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Quality, not quantity, is what you should look for in your companions. Being with a comfortable, compatible pal will be more enjoyable than hanging out with a large group. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you need to make a choice between profit and accomplishment, you’d be smart to choose the latter. Self-esteem has greater value than gold.
