Police: Father critically injures infant By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI DeKALB – A 23-year-old DeKalb man accused of shaking his 6-week-old daughter remained Thursday in the DeKalb County Jail on a $1 milKeith Terrell

Baby put on life support after alleged shaking by DeKalb man lion bond. Keith Terrell, of the 700 block of North Annie Glidden Road, was charged with aggravated battery of a child, a felony typically punishable by six to 30 years in prison. His daughter was in a Rockford hospital on life support

Thursday, police said. The baby suffered bleeding on both sides of the brain, as well as along the back, court records show. She also suffered swelling of the brain, retinal hemorrhaging, multiple rib fractures and bruising. Terrell gave police several

accounts of how the girl was injured, but ultimately told them that he shook her about 3 a.m. Tuesday morning, according to court records. The baby was crying and having trouble sleeping when he squeezed her tightly around her chest and shook her, court records show.

Terrell and the girl’s mother were the only adults who had access to the baby at the time of the alleged incident, DeKalb Detective Lt. Bob Redel said. The baby’s mother sought medical attention Wednesday afternoon when she realized something was

Sales tax rates vary by municipality By CHRIS BURROWS

Voice your opinion GENOA – When it comes to getting her shopping done, Mary Phillips has carefully weighed her options. There’s the Piggly Wiggly grocery store as well as Dollar General in Genoa, where Phillips lives and works, but those stores don’t have the same selection as some of the big box chains. The closest options for that kind of shopping are in DeKalb and Belvidere, and both are about the same distance from Genoa.

Will you drive to a town with lower sales tax rates to avoid paying higher sales taxes? Let us know at “I generally go to DeKalb,” Phillips said. “The sales taxes might be higher, but the prices are lower.” Phillips said she’s aware of the 8 percent sales tax she pays when shopping in DeKalb, which is 1.25 percentage points higher than in Belvidere and 1.75 percent-

age points higher than in Genoa, but she’s happy to pay for the selection of stores and hopes that her money supports the community. Sales tax revenues are critical to local governments in DeKalb County, particularly considering declining property values, which in turn can shrink property tax receipts. In an illustration of the country’s slow recovery from the Great Recession, tax receipts for many local communities were the same – or lower – in 2012 as in 2008.

DeKALB – Authorities were interested in former NIU Police Chief Donald Grady and the reporting of crime statistics – among other things – when they raided the Northern Illinois University police station in March, a campus leader said Thursday during an interview about the school’s new police chief. Bill Nicklas, NIU’s vice Bill Nicklas president for public safety and community relations, said the investigation by the Illinois State Police, FBI and the U.S. Education Department is ongoing. Nicklas said he did not Video think the investigation would online h a m p e r n e w N I U P o l i c e Chief Tom Phillips when he Meet new takes over Sept. 16. Nicklas NIU Police cautioned that it was unfair Chief Tom to say the entire police departPhillips at ment had been under investidaily-chron- gation. “They were investigating what they thought were concerning allegations both about the former chief and about certain aspects of the operation under his tenure,” Nicklas said. “Where we are is uncertain at this point, because we’re not in charge of directing that investigation.” The FBI search encompassed years worth of police records, and NIU police sometimes have to call to ask for documents related to ongoing investigations, Nicklas said. Federal authorities warned university officials at the time that their investigation would be lengthy, he said. An FBI spokesman did not return a call seeking comment Thursday. “We intend to cooperate as we have been cooperating,” Nicklas said. “But in terms of what the job of the chief is, it won’t be affecting that day to day.” Grady, who served as chief for 11 years, was fired Feb. 19 for mismanaging an investigation of an NIU police officer accused of raping a student while off-campus and off-duty, according to NIU documents. Michael Fox, attorney for Grady, cautioned that the search warrant was so broad it would be difficult to determine who was a target of the investigation. So far, Grady has not received any information suggesting he did anything wrong, Fox said. “Despite the incredible scope of this search, we know of no taint or allegation pertaining to the former chief,” Fox said.

wrong with the baby, Redel said. Redel said he was unable to release the baby’s prognosis. “The baby’s on life support right now, and we’ve just got to wait to see where it’s going to go,” Redel said. Terrell was arrested at 1 a.m. Thursday and was at the daily bond call later that morning. He is next scheduled to appear in court Sept. 24.

Chance to make good 1st impression Our community response to Hank Williams Jr.’s howl, “Are you ready for some football?” might be … Not quite. But like a space launch, the group promoting the Illinois High School Association state football championships Nov. 28-29 at Northern Illinois University’s Huskie Stadium has a website featuring an up-to-the-second countdown clock. That group is IHSA Destination DeKalb, and as of today, about 90 days remain. In June 2012, NIU won the opportunity to host the state championships Thanksgiving weekend this year and in 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021. As someone who has done event planning on a large scale (but not this large), I can tell you that we’re close enough that everything needs to go well to make our best first impression. I’m glad we landed the event, but I was skeptical then and am becoming a bit worried. Skeptical because DeKalb County Convention and Visitors Bureau estimates are that the championships (over the five years we host them) could attract up to 30,000 visitors and $1 million in revenue. Those estimates feel optimistic to me. It’s partly a gut feeling, and partly some research I did into how/ why communities inflate the impact of events. Professor John Crompton, a highly respected researcher who studies marketing and financing of public leisure and tourism at Texas A&M University,

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst notes that: “Economic impact analyses have an obvious political mission. They invariably are commissioned by tourism entities and usually are driven by a desire to demonstrate their sponsors’ positive contribution to the economic prosperity of the jurisdiction that subsidizes their programs or projects. The intent of a study is to position tourism in the minds of elected officials and taxpayers as being a key element in the community’s economy.” Regardless, to debut this event appropriately, the IHSA Destination DeKalb Host Committee says about $225,000 and about 200 volunteers are needed. The city and county of DeKalb have ponied up $25,000 each, as have KishHealth System and Monsanto. Other organizations (including the Daily Chronicle’s parent company, Shaw Media) have also stepped up. As of about a week ago, sponsorships stood at about $150,000. It’s unclear how many volunteers are on board, but I think it would be publicized if the numbers looked good. To me, $75,000 (the remaining upfront money to be raised) is a walloping sum, but given the potential of the event and the financial depth of some

companies around here, it’s chump change. What’s noticeably absent and embarrassing is the almost complete lack of sponsorship from the community’s major corporations, many of which will almost certainly profit from the championships. In an earlier version of this column, I tallied at least 60 companies in DeKalb and Sycamore that stand to directly benefit from shoppers, diners, lodgers and drivers needing gas before heading home. Remember, the championships coincide with the biggest shopping days of the year, so wallets will already be open. I named these folks by name and estimated how much each of them should contribute. I didn’t even include manufacturing, logistics or professional/medical industries in the area. Then I decided to stay classy. Suffice it to say: This campaign should be rolling in dough. With respect to volunteers, I would put the bite on NIU’s fraternities and sororities. Those folks are always looking for worthwhile volunteer/ charitable causes, they’re nearby, and they already know the area. We simply cannot afford a bad first impression.

J&J launches new cap to curb Tylenol overdoses By MATTHEW PERRONE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Bottles of Tylenol sold in the U.S. will soon bear red warnings alerting users to the potentially fatal risks of taking too much of the popular pain reliever. The unusual step, disclosed by the company that makes Tylenol, comes amid a growing number of lawsuits and pressure from the federal government that could have widespread ramifications for a medicine taken by millions of people every day. Johnson & Johnson says the warning will appear on the cap of new bottles of Extra Strength Tylenol sold in the U.S. starting in October and on most other Tylenol bottles in coming months. The warning will make it explicitly clear that the over-the-counter drug contains acetaminophen, a pain-relieving ingredient that is the nation’s leading cause of sudden liver failure. “We’re always looking for ways to better communicate information to patients and consumers,” says Dr. Edwin Kuffner, vice president of McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the Johnson & Johnson unit that makes Tylenol. Overdoses from acetaminophen

This undated image provided by Johnson & Johnson shows a bottle of Extra Strength Tylenol bearing a new warning label on the cap alerting users to potentially fatal risks of taking too much of the pain reliever. send 55,000 to 80,000 people in the U.S. to the emergency room each year and kill at least 500, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Preven-

tion and the Food and Drug Administration. Acetaminophen can be found in more than 600 over-the-counter and prescription products used by nearly one in four American adults every week, including household brands like Nyquil cold formula, Excedrin pain tablets and Sudafed sinus pills. Tylenol is the first of these products to include such a warning label on the bottle cap. McNeil says the warning is a result of research into the misuse of Tylenol by consumers. The new cap message will read: “CONTAINS ACETAMINOPHEN” and “ALWAYS READ THE LABEL.” The move comes at a critical time for the company, which faces more than 85 personal injury lawsuits in federal court that blame Tylenol for liver injuries and deaths. At the same time, the Food and Drug Administration is drafting long-awaited safety proposals that could curtail the use of Tylenol and other acetaminophen products. Much is at stake for McNeil and its parent company. Johnson & Johnson does not report sales of Tylenol, but total sales of all over-the-counter medicines containing acetaminophen were more than $1.75 billion last year, according to Information Resources Inc., a retail data service.

Fast-food workers stage largest protests yet By CANDICE CHOI The Associated Press NEW YORK – Fastfood workers and their supporters beat drums, blew whistles and chanted slogans Thursday on picket lines in dozens of U.S. cities, marking the largest protests yet in their quest for higher wages. The nationwide day of demonstrations came after similar actions organized by unions and community groups over the past several months. Workers are calling for the right to unionize without interference from employers and for pay of $15 an hour.

That’s more than double the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, or $15,000 a year for fulltime employees. Thursday’s walkouts and protests reached about 60 cities, including New York, Chicago and Detroit, organizers said. But the turnout varied significantly. Some targeted restaurants were temporarily unable to do business because they had too few employees, and others seemingly operated normally. Ryan Carter, a 29-year-old who bought a $1 cup of coffee at a New York McDonald’s where protesters gathered, said

he “absolutely” supported the demand for higher wages. “They work harder than the billionaires in this city,” he said. But Carter said he didn’t plan to stop his regular trips to McDonald’s. Jobs in low-wage industries have led the economic recovery. Advocates for a higher minimum wage say that makes it crucial that they pay enough for workers who support families. The restaurant industry says it already operates on thin margins and insists that sharply higher wages would lead to steeper prices for cus-

tomers and fewer opportunities for job seekers. The drive for better pay comes as the White House, some members of Congress and economists seek to raise the federal minimum wage. But most proposals are for a more modest increase, with President Barack Obama suggesting $9 an hour. The Service Employees International Union, which represents more than 2 million workers in health care, janitorial and other industries, has been providing financial support and training for local organizers in the fast-food strikes around the country.

NIU Board of Trustees reaffirms campus firearms ban By CHRIS BURROWS DeKALB – The Northern Illinois University Board of Trustees on Thursday voted unanimously in favor of a new concealed-carry policy that reaffirms a ban of all firearms on any NIU campus. The move follows the state’s passage of the Illinois Firearm Concealed Carry

Act, which itself specifically bans weapons to be carried into any building, classroom or athletic venue, or on any public or private university or college property. “The framework is already there,” NIU spokesman Paul Palian said. “But in allowing people to conceal carry, there are certain policies and procedures that need to be updated.”

NIU’s new policy allows for weapons to be stored in vehicles on NIU property in locked cases out of plain sight, except in certain areas. It also expands on the definition of firearm to include “any device that shoots a bullet” as well as fireworks and explosive devices, knives of all varieties,and bows. The policy also makes exceptions for full-time law

enforcement officers, as well as weapons needed for weapons safety courses or athletic activities, or for simulated weapons that are used in theatrical productions. Students who violate the NIU policy could be subject to a campus ban or expulsion, depending on whether or not they knowingly committed the violation. University employees face disciplinary

action, up to and including termination, and other individuals could face arrest and prosecution. “NIU’s policy provides a basis for the implementation of the Illinois statute,” NIU President Douglas Baker said. “We will continue to refine our policies and procedures as further clarification becomes available from the Illinois State Police and any

further legislative amendments.” The state law prohibits NIU from banning the concealed-carry of firearms on public streets and sidewalks that touch campus property. It also requires NIU to post signs around campus that makes clear the fact that concealed firearms aren’t permitted.

Restored marquee in DeKalb fianlly lights up ceremony By FELIX SARVER

Monica Maschak –

A crowd cheers when the word “DeKalb” appears in lights Thursday at a ceremony to officially light the restored marquee of the former DeKalb Theatre, which now houses the Debutantes School of Cosmetology and Nail Technology.

DeKALB – The lights for the new marquee sign at the Debutantes School of Cosmetology and Nail Technology almost didn’t turn on. It took three failed countdowns from 10 before the sparkling neon lights lit up the street and the crowd of DeKalb-area residents and city officials who gathered Thursday outside the beauty salon at 145 N. Third St. to commemorate the restoration of the marquee sign. Becky Rogers, one of the owners of Debutantes, was more than happy to see them finally turn on. “Another applause if that was worth the wait, because that was pretty awesome,” she said. It had been a 22-year wait for those lights to turn on. The sign was originally used for

the building when it was the DeKalb Theatre, which operated from 1949 to 1991. After the theater went out of business, the building has been used by breweries, restaurants and clubs. Becky Rogers, along with her two sisters and her father Tom Rogers, bought the building in 2007 and opened the beauty school in 2008. The family named the school after Tom Rogers’ late wife, Deb. They decided to restore the marquee in April with the help of Ohio-based Wagner Electric Sign Co. DeKalb city officials approved spending up to $90,000 to restore the marquee using tax increment financing, which sets aside tax revenue associated with increased property values to be used for economic development. Tom Rogers has said Debutantes will cover the cost of operating the sign, which is

powered by 12 20-amp circuits. DeKalb Mayor John Rey told the crowd the marquee’s restoration is representative of the private-public partnerships that are important to revitalizing downtown DeKalb. “This sign and marquee will stand as a beacon of our history to those visitors and residents for many years into the future,” he said. Former DeKalb Alderman Brendon Gallagher, one of many city officials who helped bring the project to restore the marquee to fruition, also attended Thursday’s ceremony. “I’ll tell you, this project was dead,” Gallagher said. “It was dead in the water a couple of different times, but sometimes you can electrocute something and bring it back to life.”

Police: Man blackmailed Sycamore girl By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI SYCAMORE – A 19-year-old Elgin man is accused of blackmailing a Sycamore teen with a video he claims he took of her performing a sex act on him. Lorenzo Alvarado, of the 600 block of Enterprise Street, allegedly videotaped the girl in Sycamore without her knowledge Saturday and later threatened to send the vid-

eo to her mother if she didn’t give him her Facebook password, court records show. He ultimately got her password and items later were removed Lorenzo from her Face- Alvarado book profile, court records show. Alvarado was charged

with intimidation, a felony typically punishable with probation or up to five years in prison. His bond was set at $50,000, and he is next due in court Sept. 5. Police said Alvarado made comments on the girl’s Facebook page indicating that he was aware of an order of protection she had against him, Sycamore Sgt. Rod Swartzendruber said. A judge issued an order

protecting the girl, 17, from Alvarado after a July 22 incident in which he was charged with unlawful restraint, domestic battery and possession of a controlled substance. Alvarado wasn’t served with the order of protection until he was arrested Wednesday. Police are investigating whether the video exists, Swartzendruber said. Alvarado has no current connection to Sycamore High School.

2013 Corn Fest has new layout in traditional location DAILY CHRONICLE DeKALB – The 2013 Corn Fest has a new layout in its traditional location, a new weekend and a slew of new activities for families from DeKalb and throughout the area.

San Diego mayor’s indiscretions went unnoticed By ELLIOT SPAGAT The Associated Press SAN DIEGO – San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is leaving office in disgrace amid sexual harassment allegations and many unanswered questions, including how someone who acknowledged mistreating women for many years could have survived for so long in politics. The former 10-term congressman leaves office Friday, less than nine months into a four-year term and one week after a defiant farewell speech in which the onetime civil rights activist told the City Council he was the innocent victim of a “lynch mob.” Only Filner and perhaps a small circle of advisers know how his behavior went unde-

tected, and they aren’t talking. But those who know him say he may have been more easily exposed as leader of the nation’s eighth-largest city than as a congressman working in relative obscurity. His behavior also may have deteriorated after being elected mayor. Two months ago, a former city councilwoman and longtime supporter declared him unfit for office and a woman who took a $50,000 annual pay cut to be his communications director said he asked her to work without underwear, demanded kisses and put her in headlocks. He was, in the end, forced out by those who most embraced his liberal ideals. Lori Saldana, a former Democratic state assemblywoman,

Court upholds 1st ban on gay-to-straight therapy By PAUL ELIAS The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO – A federal appeals court sided with California on Thursday and upheld the first law in the nation banning a psychological treatment that seeks to turn gay youth straight. In a resounding, unanimous opinion, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found the state law barring the so-called gay aversion therapy legal in every respect. The judges said trying to change a minor’s sexual orientation through intense therapy appeared dangerous, and that California lawmakers properly showed that the sexual orientation change efforts were outside the scientific mainstream and have been rejected for good reason. “One could argue that children under the age of 18 are especially vulnerable with respect to sexual identity and that their parents’ judgment may be clouded by this emotionally charged issue as well,” Judge Susan Graber wrote for the court panel. The California Legislature cited reports, experts and anecdotes involving suicides, substance abuse and other behavior by young recipients of the therapy before members voted last year to ban it for minors.

“Efforts to change a young person’s sexual orientation pose critical health risks, including depression, shame, decreased self-esteem, social withdrawal, substance abuse, self-harm and suicide,” Lambda Legal, which defends gay rights, said in an email statement about Thursday’s ruling. The activities of pastors and lay counselors who are unlicensed but provide such therapy through church programs are not covered by the law. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has signed a similar law that would also outlaw the therapy in his state. Liberty Counsel, a Christian legal aid group that represents supporters of the practice, said it will either ask a larger panel of the court to reconsider the decision or petition the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the case. Liberty Counsel is also fighting the New Jersey law. “The minors that Liberty Counsel represents do not want to act on same-sex attractions, nor do they want to engage in such behavior,” the group said in an email statement. “They are greatly benefiting from this counseling.” Liberty and other backers of the therapy argue that lawmakers have no conclusive, scientific proof that the therapy does harm.

8NATION BRIEFS Tiny ND town mobilizes to halt Aryan enclave plan LEITH, N.D. – Residents of a tiny North Dakota farming town are fighting back after learning that a white supremacist wants to turn the community into an Aryan enclave. Craig Cobb has been buying up land in Leith, a town of 16 people, and inviting others who share his views to move there. So far, no one has come. Still, townsfolk fear he could succeed and are mulling the enforcement of property maintenance ordinances to get him to move. They are even considering turning over control of the community to the county to scuttle his takeover plans. Mayor Ryan Schock says no decisions have been made by the town, 60 miles southwest of Bismarck.

Gun-toting, foul-mouthed Pa. chief won’t back down GILBERTON, Pa. – Police Chief Mark Kessler expects to be fired for posting incendiary videos in which he ranted obscenely about the Second Amendment and liberals while spraying machine-gun fire with borough-owned weapons. But Kessler, whose pro-gun vid-

eos have garnered hundreds of thousands of views online, has no intention of going away quietly. With an Internet radio show, speaking invitations to gun rallies around the country and a newly formed “Constitution Security Force” that he claims already has chapters in 45 states, the 41-year-old coal miner-turnedcop said his message – that the federal government is too big, too powerful and wants to grab guns – is resonating with a segment of the public that believes as he does.

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner speaks Aug. 23 after agreeing to resign at a city council meeting in San Diego. said five or six women she invited to speak at a women’s studies class she taught at San

Diego State University in 2011 confided they were previously targets of advances that fit a fa-

miliar pattern. They said he managed to get them alone at a meeting or public event and startled them with hugs, flattery and proposals for romantic relationships. The women – civic and elected leaders – didn’t know he behaved the same way toward others and didn’t think of going public, she said. Saldana said she raised concerns at the time with Jess Durfee, then-chairman of the San Diego County Democratic Party. Durfee said he confronted Filner and was assured not to worry. Durfee said he took Filner at his word, noting that he had no names or firsthand accounts, and that Filner and Saldana had a rocky history. Saldana said she suspected

Filner may have escaped scrutiny because he was thousands of miles from voters and outside the media spotlight. “In Washington, when you’re one of 535 representatives, you’re not under the same microscope. In fact, you’re fighting for attention. That, in some ways, works to the advantage of someone like Filner,” she said. A mayoral spokeswoman referred questions for Filner to his law firm, Payne & Fears LLP, which didn’t respond to an email or phone call. As he won elections, Filner, 70, won admiration from voters for his work ethic and tenaciousness. He also had a reputation for demeaning employees and lashing out at perceived adversaries.

U.S. making case for action against Syria By JULIE PACE

Feds won’t sue to stop marijuana use in 2 states

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama faced deep resistance Thursday to plans for a possible military strike against Syria, with U.S. lawmakers demanding more proof that Bashar Assad’s government perpetrated a deadly chemical weapons attack and Britain’s Parliament rejecting military action in a stunning late night vote. Even so, the U.S. could launch action within days. Unless British Prime Minister David Cameron defies Parliament, Obama faces the prospect of proceeding without a major ally that was expected to come on board. The White House signaled he was willing to move without international partners if it came to that. “The president of the United States is elected with the duty to protect the national security interests in the United States of America,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. Even before the vote in London, the U.S. was preparing to act without formal authorization from the United Nations, where Russia has blocked efforts to seek a resolution authorizing the use of force, or from Capitol Hill.

recreational drug use. In a memo to all 94 U.S. attorneys’ offices around the country, Deputy Attorney General James Cole said the federal government expects that states and local governments authorizing “marijuana-related conduct” will implement strong and effective regulatory and enforcement systems that address the threat those state laws could pose to public health and safety. “If state enforcement efforts are not sufficiently robust ... the federal government may seek to challenge the regulatory structure itself,” the memo stated. States must ensure “that they do not undermine federal enforcement priorities,” it added. The U.S. attorney in Colorado, John Walsh, said he will continue to focus on whether Colorado’s system has the resources and tools necessary to protect key federal public safety interests. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said the state is working to improve education and prevention efforts directed at young people and on enforcement tools to prevent access to marijuana by those under age 21.

White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest answers reporters questions Thursday in the briefing room of the White House in Washington, where he talked about Syria and the use of chemical weapons as the administration debates what action to take. Still, the White House sought to ease growing concerns among congressional lawmakers by deploying a bevy of top administration officials to brief lawmakers Thursday evening on U.S. intelligence assessments. Cameron made the case earlier Thursday that a military strike would be legal on humanitarian grounds. But he faced deep pressure from lawmakers and had already promised not to undertake

military action until a U.N. chemical weapons team on the ground in Syria released its findings about the Aug. 21 attack. The prime minister said in terse comments after the vote that while he believes in a “tough response” to the use of chemical weapons, he would respect the will of the House of Commons. France, though, announced that its armed forces “have been put in position to re-

spond” if President Francois Hollande commits forces to intervention against Syria. Hollande does not need French parliamentary approval to launch military action that lasts less than four months. Obama discussed the situation in Syria with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who wrote to the president earlier this week seeking a legal justification for a military strike and the objectives of any potential action.

WASHINGTON – Despite 75 years of federal marijuana prohibition, the Justice Department said Thursday that states can let people use the drug, license people to grow it and even allow adults to stroll into stores and buy it – as long as the weed is kept away from kids, the black market and federal property. In a sweeping new policy statement prompted by pot legalization votes in Washington and Colorado last fall, the department gave the green light to states to adopt tight regulatory schemes to oversee the medical and recreational marijuana industries burgeoning across the country. The action, welcomed by supporters of legalization, could set the stage for more states to legalize marijuana. Alaska could vote on the question next year, and a few other states plan similar votes in 2016. The policy change embraces what Justice Department officials called a “trust but verify” approach between the federal government and states that enact

Smaller towns Shabbona, Kingston, Hinckley, Genoa have seen tax revenues fall • TAXES Continued from page A1 The county’s two largest municipalities, DeKalb and Sycamore, each have an overall sales tax rate of 8 percent. That rate might not seem like much for everyday purchases, but people notice when they make large purchases, said Lonnie Paulsen Brint, co-owner of Paulsen Appliance & Electronics in Sycamore. “When you have a $1,000 invoice, and you’ve got $80 on it for taxes, it’s a good chunk of money,” Paulsen Brint said. Paulsen Brint said she doesn’t think a difference in sales tax rates takes customers away from her business, but it’s an important issue nonetheless. “When they want to raise the tax, we voice our opinion, because even a quarter-percent matters,” she said. “On the big-ticket items you notice it.”

Sales tax rates vary Any goods purchased in Illinois includes a 6.25 percent sales tax: 5 percent goes to the state, the county gets a quarter percent and the municipality where the item is purchased receives 1 percent. Local governments can choose to add to that amount. Rates in DeKalb and Sycamore, for instance, are higher because both cities have additional home-rule taxes of 1.75 percent. By comparison, goods purchased in

Genoa, Hinckley and Somonauk include a 6.25 percent sales tax, while in Cortland the rate is 7.25 percent. Mark Davenport says Cortland voters approved an increase in sales tax because of the town’s proximity to DeKalb and Sycamore. “We just wanted our fair share,” he said. “It’s been earmarked for improving sidewalks and other infrastructure. Right now we’re concentrating on sidewalks.” DeKalb and Sycamore receive millions in sales tax revenue each year, and the funding is critically important to their budgets – so much so that DeKalb is trying to find ways to reduce the city’s dependence on the sales and use tax collections. The city of DeKalb’s latest budget includes a goal to “examine ways in which [it] can become less sales-tax reliant.” DeKalb expects sales and use tax revenue will make up 41 percent, or $12.7 million, of its total revenue between July 1, 2013, and July 1, 2014. Property taxes are expected to net 14 percent of revenue and utility taxes 11 percent. “When we were facing the recession back a few years ago now, the more volatile tax revenues declined dramatically, so the thinking was we should not try to be so reliant on sales taxes,” interim City Manager Rudy Espiritu said. “So I think over the last few years we’ve diversified our tax base more than it was.” Since 2008, DeKalb’s sales and use

taxes have hovered around $12 million a year. Sycamore took a hit in 2009, but the increase to an 8 percent sales tax rate, which took effect in 2010, bumped revenues higher. It collected $896,000 in 2009 and was up to $1.4 million in 2011.

‘Tough economy’ has led to revenue declines Other smaller towns – like Shabbona, Kingston, Hinckley and Genoa – have seen tax revenues fall since 2008. Genoa lost about $80,000 when its two grocery stores closed about the same time in 2012, administrative consultant Joe Misurelli said. “It’s been a real tough economy,” he said. “We heard a lot of feedback from the public that it was unfortunate that they had to drive elsewhere to get more of a full-line grocery store, so we’re thrilled that Piggly Wiggly opened up.” City Manager Brian Gregory said Sycamore city officials have focused more on keeping property tax rates down while sales and user taxes are expected to account for 49 percent of the city’s revenues streams in the latest budget. “Over the years, one of the things that we’ve done is try to keep our property rates down,” Gregory said. “... We watch our trends, and we’re very mindful that sales taxes are susceptible to swings in the economy, but we’re not taking an active stance to bring that down.”

NIU has violated the Clery Act previously • NIU SEARCH Continued from page A1 Although it was very broad, the search warrant specifically requested all police records relating to the low-income Eden’s Garden housing development in DeKalb, which former NIU chief of operations Eddie Williams owns. Williams took a leave of absence after the FBI search, returning to his post for 11 days before retiring May 31. “There were a number of

focuses,” Nicklas said. “One is in the area of the reporting of crime statistics through our Clery responsibilities. They are proceeding so far as I know.” Nicklas is referring to the Jeanne Clery Act, a federal law that requires universities to provide information about crime in and around campuses. Enforced by the U.S. Education Department, the act is tied to the university’s participation in federal student financial aid programs,

according to the Clery Center for Security on Campus’ website, NIU has been found in violation of the act before. In a Feb. 11, 2005, letter addressed to former NIU President John Peters, the U.S. Education Department wrote that NIU was in violation of the act on two counts – failure to accurately report arrests and referrals for campus disciplinary action for liquor law violations and failure to properly maintain a daily crime log.

New teachers contract clears path in D-428

For a moment, it was enough For a little while on Wednesday, it was enough. It was enough to hear civil rights hero John Lewis insist that this America is better than the one where his blood spilled for justice. “Sometimes I hear people saying nothing has changed,” he said, “but for someone to grow up the way I grew up, in the cotton fields of Alabama, to now be serving in the United States Congress, makes me want to tell them, ‘Come and walk in my shoes.’” It was enough to watch the family of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. gather around the bell that once hung in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala. Less than three weeks after King’s “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963, four girls died in a bombing at that church. “A Negro mother wept in the street Sunday morning in front of a Baptist Church in Birmingham,” Atlanta Constitution Editor Eugene Patterson wrote in a column the next day. “In her hand she held a shoe, one shoe, from the foot of her dead child. We hold that shoe with her. Every one of us in the white South holds that small shoe in his hand.” At 3 p.m., the King family rang that bell, and it was enough. Then the first African-American president of the United States stood in the very spot where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. For a few minutes, it was enough to see him standing there. To hear his gratitude for the sacrifices that bore the fruit of his victory. To listen to him as he listed the kinds of Americans who refuse to give up on their country, on their fellow citizens. “That tireless teacher who gets to class

VIEWS Connie Schultz early and stays late and dips into her own pocket to buy supplies because she believes that every child is her charge – she’s marching,” he said. “That successful businessman who doesn’t have to but pays his workers a fair wage and then offers a shot to a man, maybe an ex-con, who’s down on his luck – he’s marching. “The mother who pours her love into her daughter so that she grows up with the confidence to walk through the same doors as anybody’s son – she’s marching. “The father who realizes the most important job he’ll ever have is raising his boy right, even if he didn’t have a father, especially if he didn’t have a father at home – he’s marching. “The battle-scarred veterans who devote themselves not only to helping their fellow warriors stand again and walk again and run again but to keep serving their country when they come home – they are marching. “Everyone who realizes what those glorious patriots knew on that day, that change does not come from Washington but to Washington, that change has always been built on our willingness, we the people, to take on the mantle of citizenship – you are marching.” I am an impatient patriot, loving my country but always wanting more than the current state of affairs. Often, desperately, I draw comfort from the late Rev. William Sloane Coffin’s words: “There are

three kinds of patriots, two bad, one good. The bad ones are the uncritical lovers and the loveless critics. Good patriots carry on a lover’s quarrel with their country, a reflection of God’s lover’s quarrel with all the world.” For hours before the president walked onto the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, one famous American after another walked to the microphone and, for the most part, gave a version of the same speech. I watched the steady stream of speakers and thought about how easy it is to feel ordinary and ineffective these days in our culture of celebrity. If you weren’t invited to be onstage, if you didn’t have the schedule or the money to travel to Washington this week, was it harder to think you, too, can make a difference? “Not everybody can be famous,” Martin Luther King Jr. said, “but everybody can be great because greatness is determined by service.” I’ve listened at least a hundred times to someone else deliver that quotation, and every time, I hear it a bit differently. What is service? What is the definition of greatness? On Wednesday, millions of regular Americans paused to ask such questions, of their country and themselves. For every person who felt the push to get back into the march, it was enough.

Fracking fairness key for states

Security Council. Russia and China will doubtless keep vetoing Security Council resolutions that justify a use of force against Syria. Yet there is substantial precedent in international law for taking action nonetheless, especially if the United States succeeds in attracting wide support. And documenting and publicizing Assad’s brutality will raise the reputational cost of defending him, a penalty that China may soon grow unwilling to pay: Unlike Russia, it has no naval bases to lose and needs Middle Eastern oil. The more convincingly the case against Assad is made, the more likely he will be held to account for what Secretary of State John Kerry has called a “moral obscenity.” In that respect, a speedy military response is likely to be a less effective one. We have no expectation that a limited military strike will be of huge strategic value: The civil war will grind on, in part because the opposition has yet to offer up any clear alternative leadership. But in defending what should be one of the international system’s bedrock values, the U.S. and its allies will have achieved a victory.

Wait more than 5 minutes on Syria latter. A crucial element will be the evidence that the U.S. uses to support its case. As defense analyst Anthony Cordesman has noted, the forthcoming unclassified intelligence report on Syria’s culpability will be the intelligence community’s “most important single document in a decade.” Given the ugly blot on U.S. intelligence from Iraq, we hope that this report errs on the side of disclosing sources and methods. Letting U.N. inspectors in Syria finish their work – which they have said will take but days – is also essential to garnering global support. So, too, is allowing U.S. allies such as Britain and France the time for their own public debates, which are just starting. More time and public evidence might also enable the U.S. to persuade the Arab League to move from condemning Assad to endorsing action against him. More broadly, we would hope that before any operation gets under way, Syria’s transgressions are given a prominent place on the agenda of next week’s Group of 20 meetings, and that it produces a debate that shames Russia’s Vladimir Putin for arming Assad and, so far, blocking effective action against Syria at the U.N.


One reason observers have cheered the country’s recent natural gas boom is that people in economically depressed regions once dependent on coal would benefit from the extraction of a cleaner fossil fuel from right below their feet. Energy companies would create jobs, and landowners would get royalty payments. Yet an investigation by Abrahm Lustgarten at the nonprofit news organization ProPublica suggests that the benefits to the locals might not be so rich. ProPublica’s report – involving landowners in northern Pennsylvania and Chesapeake Energy, which has invested heavily in unconventional natural gas production – focused on an extreme case. Nevertheless, it mapped out how energy companies can use complex and arbitrary accounting schemes to minimize the amount of royalties they must remit. A contract between a drilling company and a landowner delineates the amount the landowner will receive, including the royalties (usually a percentage of the gas’ sale price) he or she will be owed, and the deductions the operator may make for gathering and marketing costs, which includes purifying and transporting the gas. The ProPublica article contended that, because of these deductions, many landowners’ royalty checks amount to next to nothing. Drilling companies oversee the sophisticated and expensive equipment that calculates the marketing and gathering costs. Because many contracts don’t authorize a landowner to inspect a company’s books, it is often difficult, if not impossible, to check the calculations, and high legal fees discourage landowners from going to court. The country is still figuring out how to deal with its new bounty of natural gas. The debate often revolves around whether extracting the fuel is environmentally dangerous and what rules make sense to mitigate ecological risks. Both of these are important. But ProPublica’s investigation demonstrates that the discussion must be broader as states develop regulations. Energy companies are in the position to take advantage of landowners, and money is an incentive.


The U.S. government now says it has little doubt that the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons against its own people on a “massive scale.” This makes a military response imperative but not necessarily urgent. If the purpose of a retaliatory strike on Syria is to uphold an established international norm against the use of chemical weapons – a purpose we strongly support – then the best thing for the Obama administration to do is to make its case for intervention as deliberately and publicly as possible. Carried out at the United Nations and in foreign ministries, legislatures and public forums around the world, such a campaign can rally support for a prohibition that underpins security and peace, with positive ramifications far beyond the Middle East. It can also help isolate those who have defended and backed Assad, beginning with Iran, Russia and China, and undermine their ability to do so in the future. Although the Obama administration has rightly made a distinction between an action to uphold a global norm and one to change the course of Syria’s civil war, pursuing the former will also advance the

Congratulations to the teachers and school board in DeKalb School District 428 for finding common ground on a new three-year teachers’ contract. The agreement, ratified Sunday by the DeKalb Classroom Teachers’ Association and Tuesday by the District 428 board, will freeze teachers’ salaries for this school year, then award them annual raises which, in most cases, will provide a 1.1 percent pay scale increase and a 2.12 percent “step” increase in 2014-15, and the step increase along with a 1.25 percent pay scale increase in 2015-16. It looks as though both For the record sides compromised on the salary issues, although the Crafting a balanced buddistrict was forced to relent get is difficult but neceson a request for teachers to sary work.

If the day comes when teachers’ strikes are banned, it will be a good one for Illinois. Now that school board members have some idea of what labor costs will be in the years ahead, their next challenges will be aligning expenses with revenues, and deciding how to use a $21 million construction grant the district was awarded from the state of Illinois in October 2010. District officials have been considering how they will spend the money since early 2011. One solution that should not be dismissed is to rebate the money to property taxpayers, who agreed to pay higher taxes in a $110 million bond referendum in 2008. Of course, the district can use the funds however officials want, but using it to cover operating deficits and maintain the status quo hardly seems in keeping with the spirit of such a large construction grant. District 428, like many others in the area, has been deficit spending, and will do so again this year to the tune of $2.7 million. It’s fair to say that the state of Illinois is not doing enough in supporting local education – the state will provide only 89 percent of the “baseline” it has set for per-student funding this year. However, given the financial woes our state faces, it would be foolish to presume that will change any time soon. Crafting a balanced budget is difficult but necessary work. Now that school board members know the cost of teachers’ labor and the hours they are willing to work, they can start considering the necessary, difficult choices.

Final roster cuts await AP file photo

NFL to pay $765M to settle lawsuit PHILADELPHIA – The NFL has agreed to spend close to $800 million to diagnose and compensate potentially thousands of retired players who develop dementia and other brain disorders they blame on the violent, bone-crunching collisions that pro football has long celebrated in its highlight reels. The settlement, which is subject to approval by a federal judge, was announced Thursday after months of court-ordered mediation. It came just days before the first game of the 2013 season, removing a major legal and financial threat hanging over the NFL. More than 4,500 former athletes – some suffering from dementia, depression or Alzheimer’s that they blamed on blows to the head – have sued the NFL since the first case was filed in Philadelphia in 2011. They accused the league of concealing the longterm dangers of concussions and rushing injured players back onto the field, while glorifying and profiting from the game’s violence. The settlement would cover all 18,000 former NFL players and totals $765 million, the vast majority of which would go to compensate athletes with certain neurological ailments. It would also set aside $75 million for medical exams and $10 million for medical research. – Wire Report

For the life of me I cannot understand the logic of insisting on scheduling four exhibition games and then refusing to play anyone who’s going to be on your team in the fourth and final game. I asked Marc Trestman the question the other day and his response was, “That’s a great question. I know that we worked hard last week to get ready to play a game. We’re going to work hard this week as if it’s training camp and then we’re going to rest them and get ’em focused on Game One. The question you have has a good answer. “There would be some that would say, ‘Why not play ’em for half the week before and get their game conditioning up?’ So I don’t know that

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush there’s a right or wrong, it’s just the direction that we go here and that a lot of teams around the league are going.” I won’t argue that there is a right or wrong answer, and certainly Trestman’s correct that the overwhelming majority of teams refuse to take the fourth exhibition seriously. But please explain this one to me. In the very unique situation the Bears find themselves in, where this veteran team is going to start three rookies in Week 1, is it really possible that Kyle Long, Jordan Mills and Jon Bostic are

so far along that they couldn’t have benefitted from at least a few reps, or more realistically, a quarter or even a half? I know, no right or wrong answer. But really? OK, it was what it was, so let’s move on. I think the reality is that while I wrote recently there might have been 36 players on the roster competing for 14 spots in the final game, there probably weren’t more than a handful of players the coaches hadn’t made up their minds about. When I asked Joe DeCamillis the other day about how many final roster decisions H.

Germany, Ghana, Japan, Mexico, Norway and Scotland. Last year, the Huskies’ leading scorers were Gael Rivera and James Stevenson, from Norway and Scotland, respectively.

Philadelphia Phillies interim manager Ryne Sandberg returns to Wrigley Field today after playing for the Cubs as a second baseman for 15 seasons.

Many of Ryne Sandberg’s former teammates have said they were surprised to see the usually reserved, quiet Sandberg managing in the minors – much less toiling for six seasons at three levels for two organizations to grind out a shot at the big leagues. The man of few words arguing with an umpire? Or dealing with the media daily? The Hall of Famer taking a much longer, less certain path to the big leagues than he endured as a player? Who could picture that? Keith Moreland could – at least when he took a minute to think about it. “It wasn’t far-fetched when I first heard he was going to manager. Not at all,” said Moreland, a Cubs teammate the first six years of

Sandberg’s career. “He really knew the game. I could see that part of it.” What might have been hardest for old Cubs and Cubs fans to see is Sandberg eventually doing it in the major leagues with another club – something they will see at Wrigley Field for the first time today, when the newly minted interim manager of the Philadelphia Phillies returns to the North Side for a threegame weekend series. “I don’t know if he felt he got a fair shake for that position with the Cubs, and he had to go elsewhere,” former Cubs teammate Ron Cey said. “But, you know what, not everybody gets to manage where they want to. I’m happy he got an opportunity.” Not Mike Scioscia, Davey Lopes or Dusty

Win games or draft higher? Sox face tough late-season dilemma By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN Chicago Sun-Times BOSTON – Those who believe that losing games (think draft position) is the best thing that could happen to the White Sox could get their wish starting this weekend in Boston, where they open a 10game road trip against three contenders from the American League East tonight. Wins will be a challenge, even for the hottest team in baseball. Yes, the AL Central cellar-dwelling Sox’ 10-2 record over the last 12 games is unmatched. But only three of their remaining 30 games are against a team with a losing record, the Twins. As the Sox build for next year, it would serve them well to own a top pick in the June draft, so the notion that nothing can be gained from winning in September has picked up steam. Sixteen wins over their past 23 has only jeopardized their chance to get better because it’s lowering their draft position. Only the Astros and Marlins have more losses, but if the Sox (56-76) keep winning, they could drop below the Cubs, Giants, Padres, Brewers and Twins in the draft. While general manager Rick Hahn would cherish a plum pick – Gordon Beckham in 2004 is the only top-10 pick the Sox have had since 1991 – he and manager Robin Ventura are playing to win.

The White Sox, out of playoff contention, face the question of whether it’s better to win more games in September or get a higher draft pick with a worse record. “Our hope and intent is to win as many games as possible the rest of the way,’’ Hahn said. “We’ve got a fair amount of young players contributing right now, and we believe there is a real benefit to them learning how to properly prepare and to compete and, ideally, be part of a winning environment. The draft position will be whatever we’ve earned at the end of the season and just isn’t the focus for anyone in uniform – nor should it be.’’ It’s difficult to gauge the value of winning now and its carry-over effect to next season. The Sox got sucked into a losing culture rife with mistakes, poor decisions, baserunning gaffes and a fair amount of poor at-bats. There has been less of that

Not many former players manage same team • SANDBERG Continued from page B1 Baker, all former Dodgers teammates of Cey who couldn’t get managing jobs in their old organization. Not lifetime Yankee Don Mattingly, who has the Dodgers in first place in the N.L West. And certainly not Cubs manager Dale Sveum, who successfully finished off a 2008 playoff season for the Brewers after Ned Yost was fired, but was sent back to his hitting coach job in 2009 for the team that had drafted him in the first round 27 years earlier. Those close to Sandberg say it was a bitter pill for the franchise icon to swallow when he didn’t get the Cubs’ job any of the three times he sought it over the last eight years – in particular when first-timer Mike Quade got it in 2011 after Sandberg had spent four years managing in the Cubs’ minor-league system. Sveum says he gets it. “I don’t think it’s tough to get over. It’s part of the game,” he said. “You just

understand the business part of it and how lucky it is to get one of these jobs. “There’s only 30 of these jobs in the world. It’s not easy for an organization to put $100-million, $200-million payrolls in the hands of somebody that’s never done it before.” So it is in a Phillies uniform that Sandberg will make his Wrigley Field big-league managing debut, barely two weeks after moving from the third-base coaching box to take over for Charlie Manuel – and riding eight wins in his last 12 games back to Clark and Addison. “You’re going to look over there and obviously we’re going to want to beat him,” said Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney, one of several Cubs who played for Sandberg in the Cubs’ system. “But there’s going to be some gratitude and happiness in there because you kind of traveled the same path as the guy in a way.”

Ford looks to be No. 3 RB • BEARS Continued from page B1 told me, “We’ve met so much that most of the meetings at the end are just to finalize things. We’ve met a lot on personnel during this camp, so we have a good feel of where we’re going to go.” So let’s talk about a few of the handful of guys whose fate may have actually been in doubt going into the game and how they may have done. Joe Anderson dinged a shoulder and seemed to have leveled off at wide receiver. With four catches on four targets in the first half for 64 yards and a touchdown, and Earl Bennett’s health still uncertain, it’s almost impossible to see Anderson getting cut. It is almost as difficult to envision Brandon Hardin making the football team. Thirdround picks usually get more than one season on injured reserve to prove themselves, but Hardin has proven nothing

and shown little promise. It appeared Michael Ford had wrested the No. 3 running back spot from Armando Allen going into the Browns game and nothing happened against the Browns to change that impression. With a 64 percent completion percentage, touchdown pass and 102.8 Passer rating, Jordan Palmer did enough to claim the third quarterback spot. The question here is can the Bears be comfortable cutting Palmer and knowing he’ll probably stay available and possibly be brought back in a few weeks? I would guess J’Marcus Webb is done as a Bear while Tony Fiammetta gets to hang around. Finally there is Fendi Onobun. It just feels like, as badly as the Bears want it to work, it didn’t.

this month. Better to be rid of it now than to let a culture of losing establish a stronghold, Ventura and his staff said. “These games are always important, first and foremost because you’re a professional,’’ bench coach Mark Parent said. “Second of all, you have a chance to judge yourself against somebody else. You see where you stand as a player against a pitcher or a hitter. It’s about athletic pride and competitiveness.’’ Hahn recently said this Boston-New York-Baltimore trip will show him something about his young pitching staff. Ventura said it will be good for the young guys to “play in that kind of atmosphere.’’ If the Sox can hold on to some of the rescued lost pride Parent alluded to, it can’t

hurt. There is a quiet confidence in the clubhouse that they’re on to something good. “In a year or two, this is going to be a team to watch,’’ rookie third baseman Conor Gillaspie said. “We have so many guys that do many things well. The value of winning this last month is very important. For the guys in this clubhouse and the coaches on staff here and the people who are trying to build this team to win a championship down the road, the more we win and the better we play together this last month will really help us build for next year.”

Swim co-op wins big in first meet By DAILY CHRONICLE STAFF The DeKalb-Sycamore coop girls swimming team started its season with a dominating win at home over Elgin, 124-35, on Thursday. Jensen Keck took first place in the 200-yard individual medley and 100 freestyle. Bailey Flemming (200 free), Kylie Olson (100 butterfly), Ana Flavia Michelini (500 free) and Emily Cook (100 backstroke) also had first-place finishes. “Overall, I really couldn’t have been happier with the results of the meet,” co-op coach Leah Eames said. “I was just really happy with how the girls came together as a team and supported each other. “It was just an overall solid performance from everyone.” DeKalb-Sycamore (1-0) swept all three relays. The 200 medley relay was won by Cook, Olson, Alexa Miller and Jesse Howland. Flemming, Miller, Olson and Keck combined to win the 200 free and Olson, Cook, Flemming and Keck took first place in the 400 free.

VOLLEYBALL Cogs dominate opener: Genoa-Kingston started its season with a big win over Somonauk at home, sweeping the Bobcats, 25-12, 25-16. Bridget Halat and Sam Hansel each had seven kills. Breta Rogala dished out 14 assists while libero Olivia Cotton recorded 14 digs for the Cogs (1-0). “The team certainly performed above expectations to start off the season,” G-K coach Keith Foster said. “We seem to have gelled much earlier than we thought that we could.”

BOYS SOCCER Cogs edge Winnebago: Danny Hansen’s late goal gave Genoa-Kingston a 5-4 victory over Winnebago on the road. “We played a great first half with great team work,” G-K coach Randy Tate said. “I thought we did a nice job moving the ball and being under control. Overall, a much better played game than earlier this

week.” Juan Lechua scored one of his two goals in the first half and Erik Tomlinson also scored on a penalty kick to give G-K a 2-1 lead at half. Goals by Cris Beltran and Lechuga gave G-K (1-1, 0-1 Big Northern Conference East) a 4-2 lead in the second half. DeKalb cruises: DeKalb defeated Belvidere North, 3-0, at home in the Barb Cup. Trevor Freeland, Sean Woodford and Esteban Ibarra each scored for the Barbs. “I thought in the second half we responded to some of our criticisms we had at hlaftime,” DeKalb coach Brent McIntosh said. “We controlled the game much better in the second half.” The Barbs (2-0) will play in Saturday’s championship match against Sterling.

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY McLean places eighth: Genoa-Kingston’s Jason McLean placed eighth in the Cogs’ triangular with Harvest Christian and Hampshire. McLean completed the three-mile course in 19 minutes, 18 seconds. The Cogs finished third behind first-place Harvest Christian and Hampshire.

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY Hebel takes third: Nicole Hebel took third place in Genoa-Kingston’s triangular with Hampshire and Harvest Christian. Hebel finished the three-mile course in 22:07. G-K finished third as a team, behind first-place Hampshire and Harvest Christian.

GIRLS TENNIS DeKalb falls to Belvidere North: DeKalb tennis lost to Belvidere North, 5-0, in a dual match.

WEDNESDAY’S LATE RESULTS BOYS SOCCER H-BR ties Oregon: Hinckley-Big Rock had a one-goal lead, but gave up a late goal to finish in a 1-1 tie with Oregon. Jacob Morsch scored midway through the second half and was assisted by Brett Wachowiak.

Williams, Federer QBs: In pocket or on the move? advance with ease By BARRY WILNER The Associated Press

By EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press NEW YORK – Only a few spots separate them in the seedings. Still, the considerable gulf between No. 1 Serena Williams and No. 4 Sara Errani was hard to ignore in their back-to-back matches Thursday at the U.S. Open. Williams, seeking her 17th Grand Slam title and second straight at Flushing Meadows, brushed off an ungainly slide onto her backside en route to a typically easy second-round victory, 6-3, 6-0 over Galina Voskoboeva in half-full Arthur Ashe Stadium. Barely worth talking about by Williams’ standards: “I’ll have to think about it and see what I can do better, but it was OK,” she said. Only an hour before on the same court, a much different scene: Errani imploded in a 6-3, 6-1 loss to her Italian teammate, 83rd-ranked Flavia Pennetta. Then, with tears welling in her eyes, Errani conceded that she’s struggling to handle her high ranking and the high expectations that have come with that. “My problem isn’t that I lost. I’ve lost a million times in my life,” Errani said. “My problem is trying to find the desire to fight and be on the court ready to fight. For a few weeks, I haven’t felt like I wanted to be on the court. That’s the problem.” That concession was the most unexpected development on Day 4 of the U.S. Open, where the tournament got back on track after a rainy

Wednesday that postponed eight women’s matches and shuffled the lineups. Among the results from Thursday’s full slate: • No. 4 seed David Ferrer overcame an error-filled second-set tiebreaker to top Roberto Bautista Agut, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-1, 6-2. • Second-seeded Victoria Azarenka defeated Aleksandra Wozniak of Canada, 6-3, 6-1. • Sixth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki beat Chanelle Scheepers, 6-1, 6-2, to open the night session, with No. 2 Rafael Nadal playing the late match. Williams got through her win unscathed, and when she was done in Ashe Stadium, five-time champion Roger Federer, the seventh seed, dispatched Carlos Berloq 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 in 1 hour, 35 minutes. “It’s one of those matches I expect myself to win if possible in straight sets and gain confidence in the process,” Federer said. “All those things happened, so yeah, I’m pleased about it.” American Christina McHale won a three-setter over Elina Svitolina, while another U.S. player, 81st-ranked Allison Riske, had an easier time in a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Mona Barthel. “You never know at these things,” Riske said after making the third round of her second straight Grand Slam tournament. “Anything can happen. That’s kind of the beauty of tennis in general. Ranking is kind of just a number.”

Safety is in the pocket. That’s what NFL coaches historically have believed about their quarterbacks. Tell that to Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers, all relatively stationary passers who have had major surgery during their careers. Then again, having a quarterback double as a running threat doesn’t thrill most coaches, either – even when it’s Michael Vick, Russell Wilson or Robert Griffin III scooting around. “You want your quarterback to be at his most effective,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says. “You also want him healthy and in the lineup.” Which presents a predicament for Shanahan and his peers: QBs like RG3, Wilson and Cam Newton can’t be expected to flourish if they’re restrained. “You don’t rein in a thoroughbred,” says former Jets and Chiefs coach Herm Edwards, now an ESPN analyst. “They bring the ability to make a play that you didn’t draw up.” On the other hand, few QBs who stray from their blockers have been champions. Not even John Elway, Brett Favre and Ben Roethlisberger, quarterbacks known for making big plays on the move, could be classified as runners or scramblers. Still, don’t underestimate how much of Aaron Rodgers’ skill set is built around his mobility with the Packers. “He does a good job in the pocket transitioning out of the pocket,” Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said. “I mean the quarterback scramble drill is something that we believe in. We practice it from Day 1. The in-pocket training for the quarterback is detailed. The out-of-thepocket training for the quarterback is detailed. The true art of it – and it’s a great credit to Aaron – is the transition from the in-the-pocket training to out-of-pocket training. ... It’s something that’s part of our passing game, it’s something that’s coached, and he’s exceptional at it.” Every Super Bowl since 1996 has been

Rodgers, Tony Romo, Ryan Tannehill, Josh Freeman, Jake Locker, Terrelle Pryor and Buffalo rookie EJ Manuel all can operate well on the move. won by QBs who prefer being in the pocket, although Brett Favre, Elway and Rodgers surely weren’t fearful of taking off. Brady, Peyton and Eli Manning, Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Troy Aikman are in that group of pocket passers. But of the 12 teams in last season’s playoffs, half had quarterbacks who used their legs to complement their arms: Rodgers, Colin Kaepernick, Griffin, Wilson, Andrew Luck and Christian Ponder. Atlanta’s Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco aren’t statues, either. Coaches no longer cringe when passers are forced out of the pocket. Well, most coaches: John Fox doesn’t want to see Peyton Manning running any more than Tom Coughlin enjoys watching Eli do it. Generally, though, coaches, coordinators – and teammates – are learning to swallow hard and encourage their athletic QBs to make plays, provided the quarterbacks have escapability. Yes, there is the vulnerability issue, as everyone saw when Griffin tore up his knee in the playoffs. But, again, holding them

back can lead to uncertainty, frustration, or a loss of confidence. “I think it’s you watch him run and you advise him, give him tips. Certainly, the whole team is coached on how to run, protect the football,” 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman says of Kaepernick, who set a postseason record for yards rushing by a quarterback last winter with 181 against Green Bay. “But he’s a very naturally gifted runner and I think he’s got good instincts on when to hold them and when to fold them.” His new target with the Niners, Anquan Boldin, doesn’t think Kaepernick should fold them. “From the outside looking in, you hear about how athletic he is,” says Boldin, who was on the other side when Baltimore beat San Francisco in the Super Bowl. “A lot of times, the quarterback aspect gets overlooked. I think if people have a chance to play with him or see him up close, they’ll understand how good of a quarterback he actually is. With Colin, the play is never dead.”



Plaintiffs hope money Giants pay $545K in helps former players back wages, damages By ASSOCIATED PRESS By NANCY ARMOUR The Associated Press

Rob Winner -

James Stevenson, a senior from Scotland, participates in a drill during a Northern Illinois University soccer practice Wednesday in DeKalb. Stevenson has 29 career points.

Foregin players must adapt to U.S. soccer style • NIU Continued from page B1 consultancy companies. Stevenson was found through Sporting Futures USA, and the English players, Chris Bernard, Richard Hall and Albert Levett, all used PASS4Soccer. Generally, these players choose to come to the U.S. because of the unique collegiate athletic system. Overseas, there isn’t the same combination of higher education and competitive sports, which draws the players to the states. Of course, adapting to the American style of soccer isn’t easy. “I think the game is pure athleticism, really,” Stevenson said. “They have a lot of athletes who are big and strong, and I think that’s the difference between here and back home. Back home, it’s a lot more technical, so I have to adjust to that.” With 29 career points, Stevenson has shown that the adjustment can be made. The new players are adapting as well, although Hall said he has confused some people by referring to soccer as football. In coming from a very unique background, the three freshmen are in a tough spot, but the team has welcomed them and helped them adjust. “Everyone’s been really

helpful in our transition,” Bernard said, “whether it’s with living accommodations or just helping us get around campus.” Ultimately, to both the American and international players, it’s not about the individuals on the team. They want to come together to have success as a team. Luzzi’s efforts haven’t been toward finding players outside the country, but rather to build a team that can win. In the MAC, that’s difficult to do. Akron has won eight consecutive conference titles, and even with the departure of coach Caleb Porter to the MLS, the Zips are the favorites again. West Virginia came into the conference last season and already has proved to be a mainstay near the top of the standings. As for NIU, not many people outside the program expect the Huskies to compete with those powerhouses, but that doesn’t matter. Luzzi has gone to both sides of the Atlantic to find the players he needs to succeed. “Any player we add to our roster, we would hope he’s going to help us compete for conference championships and compete for a spot in the NCAA tournament,” Luzzi said. “That’s the goal: trying to win trophies and get to the tournament.”

Tony Dorsett hopes a proposed $765 million settlement with the NFL can make a difference in the lives of thousands of former players who are suffering from dementia and other concussion-related brain injuries. Players like Dorsett himself, a Hall of Fame running back. “There’s definitely a dire need for help for these guys – for us guys,” Dorsett told The Associated Press on Thursday. The settlement would mean immediate compensation for ailing former players and their families, as well as medical exams and treatment for all other retirees – a group that could total more than 20,000. It also would set aside $10 million for research that the plaintiffs hope will protect future generations from the devastating effects of repeated blows to the head. The settlement still has to be approved by Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody in Philadelphia, something lead plaintiffs’ lawyer Christopher Seeger said he expects to happen in the next 60 to 90 days. “I don’t know all the details so I really can’t speak to the specifics, but I’m glad to see there’s been some movement and some reaction to all this,” said Dorsett, who starred for the Dallas Cowboys after winning the 1976 Heisman Trophy at Pittsburgh. Dorsett is the most accomplished and best-known plaintiff in the mass of lawsuits. “Wow,” Dorsett said, pausing. “I’m glad to see this has come to somewhat of an end. But the research obviously is going to be important, the safety of the players is going to be extremely important.” Dorsett and Super Bowl-winning quarterback Jim McMahon were among the more than 4,500 former athletes – some suffering from dementia, depression or Alzheimer’s – who have sued the NFL since the first case was filed in Philadelphia in 2011. They accused the league

of concealing the long-term dangers of concussions and rushing injured players back onto the field, while glorifying and profiting from the kind of bone-jarring hits that make for spectacular highlight-reel footage. “I’m shocked that it is settled. I’m used to the NFL taking a hard-line approach as they have throughout the years with strikes and everything else,” said former offensive tackle Lomas Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler with Detroit, Arizona, Cleveland, the New York Giants and Tampa Bay. “I’m curious how they came up with the figure and I’ve got a lot of questions, but I am happy that it’s done. Any time the NFL acknowledges they are ready to settle something, it shows they knew they had some sort of negligence.” The NFL has insisted that safety has always been a top priority, and in settling the thousands of cases it admitted no wrongdoing. While a trial could have forced the NFL to disclose what it knew, and when, about concussion-linked brain problems, Seeger said the plaintiffs’ greater concern was a fair settlement – and one that would be paid immediately. Had the lawsuits gone to trial, it could have been years before the players saw any money. Years the players might not have. “It’s a good day, because we’re getting help for those who need help,” said Mark Rypien, the MVP of the 1992 Super Bowl for the Washington Redskins. “And a sad day, because we didn’t get this done earlier to help guys in the past.” Already, Pro Bowler Junior Seau and former Atlanta Falcon Ray Easterling, one of the first players to file a lawsuit, have committed suicide. Former Philadelphia Eagles fullback Kevin Turner has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, at 44, and fears he might not live to see his 50th birthday. Dorsett finds himself forgetting how to get places he’s been going for 30 years.

SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco Giants have paid nearly $545,000 in back wages and damages to 74 clubhouse and administrative employees for violations of minimum wage, overtime and record-keeping laws, federal officials said Thursday. Investigators found clubhouse employees were working more hours than were recorded, but receiving only a flat pay rate that amounted to less than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, the U.S. Department of Labor said.

The Giants were also accused of not paying employees overtime. “I am encouraged that the Giants acted to resolve this issue, but it was disappointing to learn that clubhouse workers providing services to high-paid sports stars weren’t making enough to meet the basic requirements of minimum-wage law,” Susana Blanco, the director of the San Francisco office of the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division, said in a statement. The alleged violations occurred over a three-year period, according to the Labor Department.

Clowney, Gamecocks win opener despite weather delay By PETE IACOBELLI The Associated Press COLUMBIA, S.C. – Mike Davis ran 75 yards for a touchdown, Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson each threw long scoring passes and All-American Jadeveon Clowney helped No. 6 South Carolina’s defense hold North Carolina to its lowest point total under coach Larry Fedora in a 27-10 victory Thursday night.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, left, breaks away from Michigan defenders Thomas Gordon, center, and Jake Ryan during an NCAA college football game in Columbus, Ohio. Heading into Saturdayís 2013 season opener against Buffalo, Miller is confident and comfortable.


Miller feels at home as OSU’s star quarterback By RUSTY MILLER The Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State’s Braxton Miller handled the question like he might a hard-charging lineman, by deftly eluding it. Asked if he considered himself a running quarterback who could pass or vice versa, he laughed and said, “Both.” Miller seems to handle everything with ease these days. Heading into Saturday’s 2013 season opener against Buffalo, the junior is confident and comfortable, surrounded by solid players and assured that this will be a special year. “The beginning of last year, they had thrown the new offense at me,” Miller said of the transition to Urban Miller’s new coaching staff and spread attack. “Sometimes, I’d be, like, ‘Man, I forgot what the

route was backside.’ But I’m comfortable with everything this year. And I’m ready.” Miller, quiet and soft-spoken around strangers, now doesn’t shirk at his name being mentioned prominently among Heisman Trophy favorites, and he’s also not flummoxed when facing media or speaking up in the huddle. “It’s a little different for me. I think everybody else only sees his quiet side,” said his good friend and backup, Kenny Guiton. “But I’m with him all the time so I get to know exactly who he is. He’s the same person to me. He’s goofy, he loves to play around. His leadership has stepped up a lot, though. A lot. He’s talking more on the field now.” A year ago, while leading the Buckeyes to a surprising 12-0 season, Miller set a school record for total offense, lead-

ing the team with 1,271 rushing yards, scoring 13 touchdowns and also adding 2,039 passing yards and 15 scores with just six interceptions. It’s doubtful he’ll run the ball very much this time around. He ran out of necessity in 2012. “I hope that doesn’t happen,” Meyer said. “He was by far our best player and when I say by far, I mean, it wasn’t even the same hemisphere as far as who the next player was that could go make a play and help us win. ... If Braxton is leading (in rushing) this year, that means something’s not going well.” This year, he’s expecting to throw a lot more. Maybe, just maybe, he’ll become a passing quarterback who can also run it. “Man, we’ve been throwing a lot,” he said.


Hokies’ Thomas eager for tough test vs. No. 1 Alabama By HANK KURZ JR. The Associated Press BLACKSBURG, Va. – Alabama knows all about the Logan Thomas the Crimson Tide can see on game film. They have watched the 6-foot-6, 254-pound Virginia Tech quarterback throw breathtaking deep balls and run over linebackers. Alabama also has seen Thomas overthrow open receivers, turnovers that lead to points. Thomas hopes to show them a more refined version of his skills on Saturday in Atlanta. The senior spent the spring getting intensive coaching on mechanics from new offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler. Thomas spent the summer leading more workouts with his teammates than he ever has, all with a goal of avoiding a repeat of last season’s 7-6 struggle. His final season starts with what he said is the biggest game of his career. “I would say it is, just because it’s the start of my final season and we’re playing against the back-to-back champions,” Thomas said this week. “We’re playing against the No. 1 team in the country. It’s my first time doing that. Obviously they’re the team to beat. They’re the team everybody knows about in the country. We’ve just got to go and represent and just have to play well and smart and physical and if we don’t have a lot of mental mistakes we’ll be just fine. I’m just excited to take the field.” The Hokies have played the No. 1 team seven times in their history, and have lost all seven. Thomas’ passing numbers in scrimmages have not reflected the improvements he and Loeffler say he’s made – he threw three interceptions, including two that were re-

turned for touchdowns, in the much anticipated spring game, and was 5-for-15 with two interceptions in another scrimmage during preseason camp. But Thomas knows the Hokies will need him to make every throw to have a chance against the Tide. Alabama is preparing like it expects to see Thomas’ best. Or Cam Newton. “He can run the ball and throw the ball,” linebacker C.J. Mosely said of Thomas, comparing him to the former Auburn quarterback who led the Tigers to the national

championship in 2010. “They have run-pass plays with the quarterback that he can either keep the ball and run it or he can pass it. ... He’s just a big, bruising quarterback. Once he gets going, it’ll be hard to stop him.” Coach Frank Beamer expects Thomas to be fine, but worries more about how many of the weapons around him, mostly unproven, will be equal to the task of performing on such a big stage. “I don’t worry about Logan. I’ll be honest with you,” Beamer said.

The game was delayed nearly two hours in the fourth quarter by rain, but the Gamecocks were already in control. Clowney did not have a sack and finished with three first-half tackles. The Tar Heels’ fast-paced offense wore him down and forced him to the sideline for several pit stops, yet he and the defense mostly hemmed in North Carolina. Shaw and Thompson put South Carolina up 17-0 in

the opening quarter. Shaw found Shaq Roland for a 65-yard touchdown on the game’s third play. Thompson threw a 29-yard TD to Kane Whitehurst later in the quarter. North Carolina continually played away from Clowney’s side with short passes and quick runs. When the Tar Heels did come his way, left tackle James Hurst did a solid job keeping No. 7 in check.

Reaching Out Christian organizations help people with disabilities



If you go

or Laura Lee Wright, support for people with physical and mental disabili-

ties has come a long way. Many barriers for fair

treatment and access to resources have been taken away because of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, she said. But there is still more to be done to support people with disabilities and many Christian organizations continue to help them.

Laura Lee Wright “Up until 10 or 12 years ago there wasn’t a real push to provide special services to people through Christian churches,” Wright said. Wright plans on giving an overview of what Bethesda Lutheran Communities, a nonprofit

organization that helps people with disabilities, at the Salad Supper for Bethlehem Lutheran Church Woman on Tuesday. She serves as ministry consultant and a chaplain for about 10 homes within the organization, which provides residential options for people with disabilities to support their physical health and spiritual well-being. “I’m going to talk about the success and importance of people living directly in the community,” she said. Providing homes for people with disabilities is one of the many services the organization offers. Bethesda Lutheran Communities also provides faith services, camps and case management services that

help people with disabilities find community services. The organization helps more than 2,000 people with disabilities and their families in 13 states. Wright has cerebral palsy and has been an advocate of disabilities for most of her life. When she attended the University of WisconsinWhitewater, she educated people on disability issues. She also served as the access minister for Northland Church in Florida, where she helped people with disabilities and families who were supporting them. With her work for Bethesda Lutheran Communities, Wright not only serves as a chaplain for their some of their homes but trains the staff and offers spiritual support. She said she is personally not a Lutheran but she is a practicing Christian nevertheless. Through her work she is able to combine her passion for working with people with disabilities and building relationships with people through God. “It’s a really wonderful opportunity to work with Besthesda Lutheran Communities,” she said.

Summer food program a success at FUMC Aug. 23 marked the final day of the summer food program at First United Methodist Church of DeKalb. Since June 12, the church has served lunch five days a week to all comers, with casseroles sent home with families each Friday for the weekend. In all, the church served approximately 7,000 meals. One of the biggest supporters of the project was Schnuck’s grocery store in DeKalb. Schnuck’s donated food every day during the program. Sometimes the delivery volunteers found there was too much food to fit into their cars. Donations and support also poured forth from the Northern Illinois Food Bank, the DeKalb County Community Foundation, Yaeger’s Farm Market, Monsanto, the Kishwaukee Kiwanis Club, Fanatico Italian Restaurant, Panera, Jimmy

Volunteers at First United Methodist Church receive a delivery for the summer food program. John’s, DeKalb County Community Gardens and many more. Each day, cook Kathi West and

her volunteer helpers would work with whatever food arrived, making healthy, delicious meals for the many guests. According to organizer Connie McCleary, the program has been a huge success, providing much more than meal service for children and adults. Church volunteers staffed two activity rooms where volunteers led the children in activities four days a week, one room for age 3 through first grade and one for grades 2 through 5. Networking opportunities and assistance with community resources were available in the adult after-lunch room, and Kishwaukee College, Illinois WorkNet Center, DeKalb County Cooperative Extension Service, and DeKalb County Housing Authority also provided information to the guests regarding available community services.

Partnering with DeKalb Wesleyan Church, the church was able to distribute diapers on several occasions for families with very small children. Volunteers in the children’s rooms provided various creative projects and activities for the younger guests. The Kids’ Club rooms hosted more than 100 children. In addition to many individual volunteers, support came from Midwest Museum of Natural History, Gurler House, DeKalb Fire Department and DeKalb Public Library. Associate Pastor Brian Gilbert expressed professional and personal feelings about the program. “We are very happy to be able to offer this ministry to our neighbors in DeKalb,” he said in a news release. “Throughout the New Testament we find several of Jesus’

The dogs also do a great deal of ministry at local schools, nursing homes and hospitals. The program started in 2008 as a response to the shooting at Northern Illinois University. Only a handful of comfort dogs were part of the group initially, but the team now consists of 67 dogs

miracles occur around food and shared meals. And this has been, for us here at the church, nothing short of miraculous. “What started off as a dream shared by Connie McCleary and Kathi West has turned into something that is transformational! The energy, love and joy that has poured out of not only our volunteers and participants, but also various community businesses, gives me great hope for our community,” he said in the release. The church plans to continue and expand the program next summer. Plans also are under way to provide services beyond the summer this year.

Daily Chronicle /

Daughter’s tattoos are slap in face to parents Dear Abby: My husband and I have two beautiful, hardworking daughters we brought up as loving, respectful parents. Recently, “Kellie,” 25, got tattoos covering her right arm, leg and ankle as well as her shoulders. They are visible unless she wears long sleeves and long pants. This has ruined our relationship because it shows how little she thinks of us as parents, and how disrespectful of our feelings she is to put the tattoos where everyone can see them. She knows we don’t like tattoos because we have mentioned it to her and voiced our disappointment when she got the first one on her ankle. I can’t sleep at night or look at my daughter knowing how little she cares about our feelings. I feel it’s a slap in the

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips face that she doesn’t honor, respect or love us. What do you think? – Beside Myself in Fort Worth Dear Beside Yourself: I think it is time you toned down the high drama. What’s done is done. If you do not appreciate the person your daughter is BENEATH her skin, you will lose her. And THAT would be a tragedy! Dear Abby: I have a 20-plusyear high school friend who is fighting ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). I have developed a close relationship with him and his parents. His mom has shared some of his comments with me, but he hasn’t shared

those thoughts with me himself. The comments are, “I want to die,” or, “I want to go home to God.” I think listening and being a supportive friend is what I can do for him, but I’m at a loss as to what to say to his mother. I don’t know what advice to give her so she can be supportive in her conversations with her dying son. – Deep Sorrow in Ohio Dear Deep Sorrow: I agree that listening and being supportive is what you can do best for your friend. When the son raises the subject again with his mother, she should tell him that she loves him and will see that his wishes are carried out, even though losing him will be losing a part of herself. When you see the mother again, ask if he has an

advance directive for medical decisions in place. In it, a person can specify that only palliative care is preferred. A group that offers guidance in drafting these important documents – and one to which I contribute – is Compassion and Choices. The toll-free number is 800-2477421. If your friend does not have an advance directive, it’s important that he make one now. Dear Abby: Our across-thestreet neighbors feel they need to mow their lawn three (excessive) times a week. This includes using a weed-eater and two mowers – a push mower and a large riding mower. Quite often, the husband chooses to mow after 8 p.m. He doesn’t work and could do it during the morning hours if he wants it

cooler. The noise is loud and extremely disruptive, and lasts about an hour because he goes over and over the same area. We work and would like to enjoy the few hours we have in the evening and relax. Any ideas? – Tired Of The Noise in Montana Dear Tired Of The Noise: If you’re on speaking terms with this neighbor, you should ask him if he would please manicure his lawn at a different time because the noise is disruptive. If he is unwilling to cooperate, check with the city to find out if there are any noise ordinances in place. If there are, you can report the noise as a nuisance.

Spinal fractures lead seniors to loss of height Dear Dr. K: Why do so many people lose height and develop a stooped posture as they get older? Dear Reader: You may be surprised by the answer. In many older people, loss of height and stooped posture results from fractures of the spine. When you think of a bone fracture, you probably picture a long bone being snapped like a twig, as with a broken arm or leg. The vertebrae (bones of the spine) are not long bones. They are more like little cubes. When they break, they are compressed, not snapped. They get crunched down. Picture the way an upturned paper cup would be flattened when stepped on. (I’ve put an illustration on my website, that

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff compares compressed and normal vertebrae.) When the bones of your spine lose height, you lose height. The bones of your spine hold you upright. Those bones (and other bones throughout the body) become weak and susceptible to fractures because of a bone-weakening condition known as osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is more common in women than men. It affects all of the spine bones and many other bones. Women who have had a fracture of one spine bone have a greatly

increased risk that other spine bones also will follow suit. Though it may seem solid and unchanging, bone is continually demolished and reconstructed. Inside all of your bones, even as you read this, some cells are adding new bone and other cells are eating away at the old bone. Normally, the bone-building process is equal to the bone-destroying process, so that your bones are neither too thick nor too thin. With osteoporosis, bone reconstruction lags behind bone demolition. Spinal fractures often occur without a traumatic cause like a fall. Even simple acts of daily life, such as bending over, coughing or lifting, can collapse a vertebra weakened

by osteoporosis. A minor stress can be the “straw that breaks the camel’s back.” In many cases, vertebral fractures cause little or no pain. The main clue that they have occurred is a gradual shrinkage or stooped posture. One or two compression fractures in the spine may produce only a slight loss of height. But many fractures can profoundly affect appearance, mobility and health. As the number of fractures increases, the spine becomes progressively more distorted. The upper body is thrust down and forward. The abdominal muscles sag, and the space between the ribs and the pelvis closes. The chest wall becomes cramped; abdominal organs are com-

pressed and pushed forward. Breathing may become difficult and digestion may be impaired. Since walking erect is difficult, a cane or walker becomes essential. Given the serious consequences of osteoporosis, you should take steps to prevent it: • Get enough calcium and vitamin D through foods and, if necessary, vitamin supplements. • Regularly perform weight-bearing exercises. • Don’t smoke. • Avoid excess alcohol. • If you have recently entered menopause, ask your doctor about preventive medications.

Return stolen ring, hand boy walking papers Dr. Wallace: I’ve been dating Josh for more than a year. I like him, but he does things that I don’t approve of. I’m 18, and he is 20 and full of bad habits. He smokes marijuana and tobacco cigarettes, and I hate to kiss him because he reeks of stale smoke. He drinks and doesn’t know when to quit. I can’t count the number of times he has become so drunk that I had to drive him home in his car. My birthday was last week, and he gave me a beautiful ring. Since Josh rarely has money to spare, I asked him where he bought the ring and how much he paid

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace for it. He said that his cousin works for a jewelry shop and told him to take it because Josh had fixed his cousin’s car. When I said it sounded like the ring was stolen, Josh said that the jewelry shop makes tons of money, and they wouldn’t miss the ring that probably only cost the jeweler $100. What should I do? – Brianna, El Paso, Texas Brianna: I think you know what to do. There’s no way you would feel comfortable

TODAY – In the coming months, look for new hobbies to help bring you greater happiness. Spend more time with friends, children or loved ones. A change of heart will make you aware of what you need to do to make your life more meaningful. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Get together with people who share common interests. Attending an event in your community or getting together with people with past and present co-workers will lead to an opportunity. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – You’re in a cycle of quickly shifting trends, so embrace change and accept the inevitable. Sometimes a push is required to get moving in a direction better suited to your needs. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Step back and re-evaluate a relationship with a person who is trying to coerce you into something you don’t want to do. Your time is better spent with people who have your best interest at heart. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Get your facts and figures from a reliable source. Deals can be made and improvements to your living arrangements or surroundings begun. Do your own thing and avoid meddlers. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Emotions that you or another has been trying to tamp down will surface. You need to deal with potentially messy relationship issues with calmness and grace. Make adjustments to your work methods to ensure security. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Let the past be your teacher in terms of your financial security. Something you learned long ago can be used to open up a new income channel. Be innovative, take charge and move forward. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – It’s a good day to wheel and deal, draw up contracts, push your ideas and form partnerships that will ensure that you reach your goals. Live fully – the sky is the limit. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Take advantage of your many options, but don’t exceed your boundaries. There will be a fine line between success and failure. Make your choice based on what you know, not what you assume. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Share information and do your best to help others. Your contribution will raise your profile and bring interesting people into your life. Partnerships and proposals look to be quite profitable. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Listen carefully and size up the situation before sharing your thoughts on a work matter. Someone is likely to use your words against you, so don’t give them much to work with. Romance will turn your evening into an adventure. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Plan an outing with someone you love. The pleasure you take in joint endeavors will encourage you to take on a new project. Plan a trip to an unusual destination for additional inspiration. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Make personal changes that will make you feel good about yourself and what you have to offer. An emotional reunion with someone from your past will bring much happiness.

wearing a stolen ring, and Josh’s reassurances – that the ring isn’t worth all that much and wouldn’t be missed – only make matters worse. A “gift” like this is an insult. Return the ring and, after you’ve done that, you might want to give Josh his walking papers, as well. You’ve put up with enough from him. He smokes, does drugs and drinks himself comatose. Now he’s demonstrated that he is also a common thief. Staying with this loser is sure to lead to a life of misery. Dr. Wallace: Please allow me to enter the debate of young girls getting involved


with older guys. I was 19, and the love of my life was 59 when we got married against the wishes of my parents. We had a great marriage. We loved each other dearly. He was a wonderful husband. He never had been married, but he knew how to make me a happy wife. We had two sons, and they, too, adored him. I am now 49 years old and have been a widow for three years. The 27 years I spent with Bob were the best years of my life. I wouldn’t trade them for anything. I’ll never marry again because I’m spoiled. It would be impossible for me to find another man in the same mold as

Bob. – Young Wife, Montgomery, Ala. Young Wife: A 40-year age difference is, indeed, significant, but in the end, love conquers all odds. Congratulations! The only time I find significant age difference detrimental is when a teen still in high school is dating someone quite older. The teen is often a girl, and the guy has difficulty finding someone his own age. But it’s very rare for a significantly older female to “hawk” a male teen.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Take your time at the beginning Paul Valery, a French poet and critic who died in 1945, said, “Every thought is an exception to the general rule that people don’t think.” Bridge players always think – although experts think more than others. Today’s deal requires careful thought. South is in three no-trump. West leads his fourth-highest heart. What should South do after winning with his jack? South seems to have a textbook two-no-trump opening bid, but it is close to an upgrade to two clubs, with that good five-card suit worth an extra point. Declarer has only five top tricks: two spades and three hearts. It looks obvious to attack diamonds, where he has so many cards. And that is true, but it helps if he pauses to think about the right play at trick two. Suppose South makes the natural-looking choice of a low diamond to dummy’s jack. Here, East wins the trick with his ace and returns a heart, after which declarer has no chance. If South then tries clubs, East takes the trick with the ace and leads his last heart. True, if declarer starts at trick two with a club to dummy’s 10, that makes it harder for the defense. Whichever defender takes the trick must shift to spades. However, South can leave the defenders with no chance if he leads the diamond king from his hand at the second trick. If East wins the trick, declarer takes East’s return and ducks a diamond to collect two spades, three hearts and four diamonds. Alternatively, if East ducks the diamond king, South turns to clubs, taking two spades, three hearts, one diamond and three clubs.

New-for-2014 Mazda6 is poised for gains By ANN M. JOB For The Associated Press Agile and poised, the newfor-2014 Mazda6 mid-size sedan is a major leap over its predecessor in styling, features and fuel economy. Gone is the ho-hum, Toyota Camry-like exterior. In its place is a handsome, rakish look and larger tires. The five-seat Mazda6 interior looks nicer, too, with soft-touch plastic all around and nearly an inch more rear legroom than its predecessor. Front seats now have anti-whiplash head restraints, and push-button start is standard on all models. Thanks to a more fuel-efficient, gasoline four cylinder, the federal government rates the 2014 Mazda6 at 26 miles per gallon in city driving and 38 mpg on the highway, when fitted with a six-speed automatic. This compares with just 21/30 mpg for a similar 2013 Mazda6. Additionally, when equipped with an optional energy-reclaiming system, the 2014 Mazda6 is rated by the federal government at 28/40 mpg. Best of all, the new Mazda6 feels stable and controlled, but not heavy. Traveling at good speed on mountain switchbacks, the test car was well behaved and poised. The Mazda6 also is a recommended buy of Consumer Reports magazine, which says predicted reliability should be above average. Pricing hasn’t changed much from last year. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, is $21,785 for the base, front-wheel drive 2014 Mazda6 Sport with 184-horsepower, four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission. This is up from last year’s $21,520. The lowest starting retail price for a 2014 Mazda 6 with six-speed automatic is $23,490, or $1,705 more than the base 2014 Mazda6. The

AP photo

This image made available by Mazda shows the 2014 Mazda6 Grand Touring model. reason for the sizable jump in price isn’t just the automatic. The base, automatic transmission-equipped 2014 Mazda6 also adds the following over the base, manual transmission base model: Rearview camera, Bluetooth hands-free phone calling and audio, 5.8-inch color display on the dashboard, voice command for audio, Pandora Internet radio compatibility, SMS text message and audio delivery and 911 automatic emergency notification. All 2014 Mazda6s so far this model year come with the new, 184-horsepower, 2.5-liter, direct injection, gasoline, four-cylinder engine. This compares with last year’s 170-horse four cylinder. A turbocharged diesel four cylinder is due later in the model year as Mazda becomes the first Japan-based automaker to offer a diesel powerplant in a U.S. car. Mid-size sedan competitors are many and include the top seller – the Toyota Camry, which starts

at $23,045 for a 2013 model with 178-horsepower four cylinder and automatic transmission. Note that all Camry models come standard with Bluetooth hands-free phone calling and a larger color display screen than the Mazda6 has. In addition, the 2013 Camry includes standard knee air bags to help keep front-seat passengers from submarining under the dashboard during frontal crashes. These air bags are not available on the Mazda6. But the Camry’s base wheels are 16-inchers, while the new Mazda6 has 17-inchers. Starting MSRP, including destination charge, for a 2013 Hyundai Sonata mid-size sedan with 198-horsepower four cylinder and automatic transmission is $21,990. All 2013 Sonatas include Bluetooth phone calling and the base model wears 16-inch tires. The top 2014 Mazda6, the Grand Touring model, hits $30,000-plus and includes perforated leather-trimmed seats, 19-inch tires, rear spoiler,

eight-way, power driver’s seat, fog lights, bi-Xenon headlamps, Bose 11-speaker sound system and power moonroof as standard equipment. But even on the Grand Touring model, Mazda’s new, energy-reclaiming system that reduces the use of gasoline for the car’s onboard power accessories is part of a $2,080 option package. This Intelligent Energy Loop system – i-eLOOP for short – utilizes regenerative brakes like those on a gasoline-electric hybrid to capture kinetic energy during braking. In the Mazda6, a variable voltage alternator, a DC/DC converter and a high-capacity, electric double-layer capacitor work to capture and store this energy that would otherwise be lost during deceleration. Once stored as electricity, this tapped energy helps operate onboard accessories, such as radio, and means the car’s engine doesn’t have to. The test car, a Grand Touring model, did not have i-eLOOP. But it

delivered a healthy 28.5 mpg in combined city/highway travel without fuss. The engine got the 3,200-pound sedan moving from startup with spirit, and the Mazda6 held gears all the way to redline during manual shifts of the sport automatic transmission. Peak torque of 185 foot-pounds comes on at a decent 3,250 rpm. This compares with the Sonata’s 184 footpounds at 4,250 rpm. The Mazda6 engine sounds, however, were evident, even at idle. And during hard acceleration, the Mazda6 four cylinder sounded buzzy. Road noise and the sounds of nearby cars also permeated the cabin. But there’s something special about driving the Mazda6. While this sedan now has electric power steering, the system’s 15.5:1 steering ratio provided quick response. There was a bit of lean to the car body in long sweeping curves, but the ride overall was firm – so firm that passengers often felt road bumps and vibrations. But they were not jarring. The Grand Touring front seats had good lateral support for a threehour, nonstop drive. Even outboard back seat cushions were longer than expected to support nearly the full thighs of a 5-foot-4 passenger. But the middle person in back has to contend with a sizable hump in the floor and can be cramped between two adults. A plus: Rear windows go down all the way. The 2014 Mazda6, with a shorter overall length, has less trunk space than the 2013 model. The trunk went from 16.6 cubic feet to 14.8 cubic feet, which makes it smaller than those of most other mid-size sedans. Most of the space is under the rear parcel shelf. Side pillars around the windshield blocked driver views of pedestrians and even some cars during turns.

Sycamore quarterback Devin Mottet carries the ball in the first quarter of a Class 5A second-round playoff game against eventual state champion Montini on Nov. 3 in Lombard. Montini edged Sycamore, 24-22. The defeate was almost 10 months ago, yet the memories still are fresh. “Honestly, today it still feels like it was yesterday,” senior defensive end Josh Hunt said.

Spartans hungry to move forward after narrow 2nd-round playoff exit By ROSS JACOBSON SYCAMORE – Mention the words “31 seconds” to any Sycamore football player and the flashbacks will start in their mind. Sycamore’s 24-22 loss to eventual Class 5A state champion Montini in the second round of last year’s playoffs was almost 10 months ago, yet the memories still are fresh. “Honestly, today it still feels like it was yesterday,” senior defensive end Josh Hunt said. “It’s in the back of your head all the time when you’re out here practicing or in the weight room.” Losing to Montini in the playoffs wasn’t anything new for Sycamore, which hasn’t been able to escape the Broncos in four of the past six postseasons, but the fashion in which the 2012 defeat occurred might have been the most gut-wrenching of the four losses. A textbook two-minute drill orchestrated by quarterback Devin Mottet, capped by a touchdown and two-point conversion, gave the

Online exclusive Check out this week’s “3-Point Stance,” the Daily Chronicle’s weekly video segment exclusively about the local prep football scene, where sports editor Ross Jacobson discusses tonight’s DeKalb at Vernon Hills game with Barbs senior receiver Drew Paszotta, in addition to Steve Nitz and Jacobson breaking down the other games being played this weekend, online at Spartans a one-point lead with 31 seconds left. But a good kick return from Montini and three quick, pro-

ductive plays set up a 34-yard field goal attempt that was true. “I didn’t even watch the last

play, just turned my head and hoped,” senior safety Michael Stinnett said. “I heard the crowd and then just a terrible feeling. We were so close and got a little taste of it and it was taken right from us.” Sycamore coach Joe Ryan said the locker room atmosphere immediately after the loss that Saturday afternoon was centered on the senior class, those who had just played their final game in a Spartans uniform. But a couple days later, the focus shifted to this season. There’s no cliché story about Sycamore players going back to the weight room earlier than usual, suddenly motivated after experiencing gridiron heartbreak. No matter how or when the season ended, they all would’ve gotten back to work the next week as part of the school’s overall sports training program that runs year-round from sport to sport.

PREP FOOTBALL 2 • Friday, August 30, 2013


Daily Chronicle /

Season kicks off with 4 teams on road Daily Chronicle sports editor Ross Jacobson and sports reporter Steve Nitz spend their days covering the area’s sports scene. Occasionally, they give their viewpoints on those local sports. In this installment of their Take 2 column, they discuss the first night of the prep football regular season.

Jacobson: Steve, can you believe we’re just about set to kick off the 2013 season? It seems like just yesterday when we were watching DeKalb softball and Sycamore baseball play in the final weekend of our spring sports season. But the first thing that

stands out to me about our set of Week 1 matchups is four of our five local teams are on the road. The only home team is Kaneland, who plays host to Chicago Brooks. Winning on the road never is easy in high school football, so a win for any of our four visiting teams would be a great start to the season. My question to you: Which team would gain the most from a win tonight? Nitz: That’s a tough question; a win would be big for any of our teams this week. However, if I had to pick one program, I would have to go with Sycamore. The Spartans have the toughest Week 1 opponent, Lincoln-Way West,

TAKE 2 Ross Jacobson and Steve Nitz face off who upset Kaneland in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs last season and nearly beat Joliet Catholic in the quarterfinals. A win here would be a nice season-opening boost for Sycamore. Jacobson: The Week 1 slate is very tough as Kaneland and Hiawatha also face playoff teams from last year. But I’ll go a different route and look at the state of our local teams rather than their

opponents in determining who could most use a win. And for that reason, I’m going with DeKalb. With a new coach, a victory in Week 1 would provide automatic belief from the players that the Barbs have the right people in place. Last year’s season could have looked a lot different had the Barbs pulled out those two close losses in the first two weeks. What are fair expectations

for coach Matt Weckler and the Barbs heading into 2013? Nitz: I certainly don’t think it’s unfair to say the Barbs have a good shot at making the playoffs for the first time since 2010. There’s a new coach, an experienced quarterback in Jack Sauter, and junior tailback Dre Brown should be in for a big year provided he stays healthy. The schedule also plays into DeKalb’s favor. Vernon Hills was just 2-7 last year, and Hampshire isn’t a strong program. The Barbs’ other two nonconference opponents, Ottawa and Streator, are beatable as well. All four of DeKalb’s nonconference games are very winnable.

Do you think DeKalb will get over the hump and earn a playoff berth this year? Jacobson: Well, in our season preview tab (definitely read through it if you haven’t already) two days ago I picked DeKalb to make the playoffs and nothing in the past 48 hours has changed my mind about the Barbs. Weckler took Belvidere to the playoffs four times in his six years, including the last two. That’s instant credibility with players and, as we’ve seen many times with high school sports, great things can happen when a coach gets a team’s players to “buy in.” Mark it down: DeKalb will be playing in November.

Expectations high for veteran Sycamore team • SPARTANS From PREP FOOTBALL 1

Rob Winner –

New DeKalb football coach Matt Weckler oversees the team’s first practice of the year Aug. 14 in DeKalb. The transition to a third coach in three years was smooth for the squad by several accounts.


‘Smooth sailing’ through transition Teachers strike threatened to take wind out of Barbs’ sails By ANTHONY ZILIS DeKALB – The transition to a third coach in three years was smooth for the DeKalb football team by several accounts, but a grinding halt would not have been appreciated. As much as new coach Matt Weckler wanted his team to shut out the possibility of a teachers strike from their minds, senior quarterback Jack Sauter couldn’t help but think about what would happen if the Barbs were forced to sit for the first week of the season. “I was pretty worried because there was word going around that it was going to be pretty serious,” Sauter said. “I was trying not to worry too much about that, [instead thinking about] Friday night and being optimistic. I’m sure if it would’ve happened, we would have had to get something together, at least keep guys lifting, get guys doing stuff, because we wouldn’t have been allowed to be out here with Weckler.”

DeKalb quarterback Jack Sauter rolls out as Galesburg’s Matt Hawkins pursues in the second quarter of the game Aug. 24, 2012, in DeKalb. Luckily, the teachers’ union and district reached an agreement Saturday, and the contract officially was approved this week, ending the possibility that Friday’s game against Vernon Hills would be sacrificed. Senior Tanner Pumphrey was relieved when he saw news of the agreement on Twitter, and that feeling swept through the DeKalb locker room.

“It would have been kind of hard to take that first loss like that and not being able to practice,” the linebacker said. “Everyone was pretty excited; everyone was telling each other. The first thing when we got to the locker room, everyone was talking about it.” Returning from a 2-7 season, the Barbs have a new sense of optimism with the

new staff, and the players appear to be buying in. Weckler said he only needed a few days to institute his style and form of discipline. “Basically [it took] about two days,” he said. “Honestly, we were pretty structured, and we had a couple of meetings right away and then we had a summer camp right away in June right after they got done with school, and once we basically taught them the pace and the way we run practice, they bought in and they didn’t have time to do anything else.” The Barbs are thankful they still won’t have time to do anything else. “It’s been a pretty fluid transition, I would say. With the increased discipline and expectations, we’ve all adapted pretty quick,” Sauter said. “With a new coach, a new system, school starting, your first game, there’s already enough nervous energy and anxiety going on, so we didn’t need a delay in our season and a delay in our school, so I’m happy that it’s just smooth sailing from here.”

“We would’ve much rather been playing the next week than in the weight room preparing for the offseason,” Stinnett said. Luckily for Stinnett and the Spartans, many of last year’s starters do get another chance to take the field. The Spartans sport four threeyear starters and the senior class is featured throughout the offensive and defensive depth charts. Combine last year’s close call against Montini with a strong returning core of players, and external expectations for Sycamore are higher than they’ve been in years. The Spartans are ranked No. 5 in The Associated Press’ Class 5A preseason poll, one spot behind threetime defending Northern Illinois Big 12 East champion Kaneland. Montini, of course, is the unanimous No. 1. Yet Ryan, entering his 10th season at Sycamore, knows not to think too far ahead. “It’s all about Week 1 right now,” Ryan said. “It’s not about the postseason because the postseason won’t ever come if you don’t play well each week.” Just about 10 months ago, many players on the current group of Spartans stumbled slowly off the turf field in Lombard while Montini celebrated another win. Today, they still remind each other of what happened,

“The positive is you get to build on that, knowing that we were there. That motivates everybody. ... It’s a good time to be at Sycamore right now. We’re on the rise.” Josh Hunt Sycamore senior defensive end Josh Hunt

the 31 seconds that stood between them and finally doing away with the Montini curse. The 31 seconds will come up outside at practice or in the film room while they study the kickoff team. They remember those closing moments of the second-round playoff game for what they were: the closest any team has come to beating Montini in the playoffs over the past three postseasons. But they’ve set out to prove that a year from now, that game will not be the legacy of the senior class. “It’s obviously a positive because we were there, but as coach Ryan says, ‘All you get is a pat on the back for that,’ ” Hunt said. “You didn’t win, you didn’t go any further, you almost beat the team that won state. “The positive is you get to build on that, knowing that we were there. That motivates everybody. ... It’s a good time to be at Sycamore right now. We’re on the rise.”

The Green Wave are members of the extremely tough Suburban Christian Blue Conference, which produced two state champs last year. The Cogs should see a ton of senior tailback Davontae Elam, who ran for 161 yards in the teams’ meeting last season. What’s at stake: It’s an important and winnable game for G-K, with a good Rockford Lutheran team coming up in Week 2, and then the tough Big Northern East slate. The Cogs could easily have won last year’s contest. Expect this one to be close as well. – Steve Nitz,

Despite a slew of talent that graduated from last year’s 9-2 team, Hiawatha coach Sean Donnelly expects more of the same from the Red Ramblers. “I’m pretty sure they have just reloaded their talent,” Donnelly said. “They had plenty of guys waiting in the pipeline with a 40man roster.” Mooseheart will try to get the ball to its playmakers in space.
