No hurry on Race to Top Locally, only D-200 considers applying for federal school grants

State starts signing up gun-carry instructors Classes required to get concealed firearm permit By KEVIN P. CRAVER

H. Rick Bamman –

Woodstock seniors Eddy Dhom (foreground) and Chad Winter work with an online program Thursday to earn credit for graduation requirements at Woodstock High School. The U.S. Department of Education announced that it has finalized the application for the 2013 Race to the Top-District competition, which will provide nearly $120 million to districts throughout the country. By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO The majority of school districts in McHenry County and the state have passed on the opportunity to compete for $120 million in grants recently made available by the Obama administration’s Race to the Top initiative. Beginning in 2009, Race to the Top encouraged school districts

across the country to compete for $4.35 billion in federal stimulus money and enact education reforms such as performance-based teacher evaluations and projects to turn around poorly performing schools. Last month, the U.S. Department of Education announced a Race to the Top-District

“There are so many strings attached with Race to the Top money that school districts don’t want to take it on. It would require so much extra work, and I think districts often don’t see the results from that program.” Leslie Schermerhorn, Regional superintendent of schools

The Illinois State Police have started the process of registering instructors and approving their courses for people wanting permits to carry concealed weapons. State police made the applications available on the department’s website last week, just before the Sept. 6 deadline set by state law. Concealed-carry applications will be available to the public starting Jan. 5, according to the state police. Lawmakers in the last days of the spring session May 31 hashed out a bill authorizing concealed carry in Illinois to comply with a 2012 federal court ruling striking down Illinois’ ban, the last of its kind in the union. The other 49 states have concealed-carry laws of varying strictness. Illinois’ new law is among the more stringent. Applicants must pay a $150 fee – the fee is $300 for out-of-state residents – and must complete a 16-hour training course, the longest of any state. The course requirement is halved to eight hours for honorably

On the Net You can find the applications and the rules for registering as a concealed carry firearms instructor at www.isp. The Illinois State Police will begin accepting applications for concealed-carry permits Jan. 5.

U.S. runs into resistance over Syria strikes By DEB RIECHMANN The Associated Press PARIS – The U.S. tried to rally support on Saturday for a military strike against Syria, running into resistance from the American public and skeptics in Congress and from European allies bent on awaiting a U.N. report about a chemical attack they acknowledge strongly points to the Assad government. President Barack Obama prepared for a national address Tuesday night as a growing number of lawmakers, including fellow Democrats,

opposed the use of force. The American public didn’t yet appear persuaded by Obama’s argument that action is needed to deter the future use of chemical weapons. Meanwhile, a U.S. official re- John Kerry leased a DVD U.S. Secretary compilation of of State videos showing victims of the Aug. 21 attack near Damascus. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who met with more than two dozen Europe-


an foreign ministers on Saturday, insisted that international backing to take strong action against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime was growing, not receding. Kerry noted that the ministers, who held an informal meeting of the European Union in Vilnius, Lithuania, made powerful statements condemning the attack, and that increasingly there was a sense of conviction that Assad was to blame. Kerry said the U.S. had agreed to provide additional information to those ministers who were not yet convinced that Assad orches-

It also said that evidence strongly points to the Syrian government. Still, the EU urged the U.S. to delay possible military action until U.N. inspectors report their findings. The Europeans were divided on whether military action would be effective. Britain’s Parliament has voted against military action. France had

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question The Northwest Herald invites you to voice your opinion. Log on to www. and vote on today’s poll question:


Will Illinois pension reform turn into anti-reform? Is it possible that the conference committee working behind closed doors to “fix” Illinois’ failing public pension systems actually could make matters worse? In Illinois, anything’s possible, I suppose. Even this. First, let’s review: Illinois’ five statewide pension systems are underfunded by $100 billion. That amount increases by millions each day that lawmakers don’t pass meaningful reform. There is no cap on current retirees’ pensions. Thousands of retirees across Illinois receive six-figure annual pensions for no longer working. Hundreds receive pensions in the hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. More retirees with excessive pensions are added to the rolls each year. Automatic, 3 percent compounded cost-of-living increases that public pensioners receive each year means that those annual pensions continue to grow astronomically every year. Because Gov. Pat Quinn and the General Assembly repeatedly have failed to reach a solution, they punted responsibility for pension reform to a conference committee made up of six Democratic and four Republican lawmakers. So how can this bipartisan group of legislators that’s been meeting behind closed doors since June possibly make matters worse? According to a briefing sent recently to Republican General Assembly members about the committee’s recent discussions, a bill being crafted would reduce public employees’ contributions to their own pensions and potentially increase the annual COLA. Here are some of the details, according to the briefing: • There’s no increase in retirement age in the proposal. • There’s no cap on individual pension payouts, meaning annual pensions of hundreds of thousands of dollars would continue. • Public employees would actually

VIEWS Dan McCaleb contribute a percentage point less – not more – to their pensions. For example, a teacher that currently pays 9.4 percent of his or her salary toward a pension would only pay 8.4 percent. • The COLA would not go away. It would be half of the Consumer Price Index and contain a floor and a ceiling. But the ceiling could be much as 6 percent. If inflation reaches double digits at some point in the future, the pension crisis only gets worse. Now these details aren’t final. They could change before a bill is crafted and filed. And there are some positive details in the briefing, such as delaying the COLA after a public employee retires based on their current age. For example, a current public employee over age 45 wouldn’t receive the COLA until the second year after retirement; an employee 40 to 45 wouldn’t receive it until year three, etc. But the negatives outweigh the positives and, according to the briefing, these are the latest from the committee that’s under pressure to come forward with a bill soon. I hope it’s not, but if this is what gets filed, I don’t see it passing. That would set pension reform back another year or longer. And Illinois’ $100 billion pension problem will grow by the day. ••• Super pickup: Congratulations to Scott and Missy Voorhees of Crystal Lake, who won a 1963 Dodge pickup truck that was used as the Kent family farm truck in the latest Superman movie, “Man of Steel.” The Volo Auto Museum donated the truck as part of the McHenry Outdoor Theater’s Drive to Stay Alive campaign, according to a news release from the museum. The McHenry drive-in is trying to raise money to buy a digital

projector so it can keep its doors open after the movie industry switches over to digital-only distribution. The Volo Auto Museum and Radio Station 102.3 XLC partnered with the drive-in for a summerlong fundraising campaign. On Aug. 24, the theater played “Man of Steel” as part of Super Hero Night. Winning numbers for the ’63 Dodge were drawn at the event, but no one claimed the prize. New winning numbers were posted daily on the drive-in’s Facebook page until someone claimed it, and the Voorhees were the first to call. Scott Voorhees and his wife have three children: Cassie, 15, Nate, 12, and Matt, 11. The truck will be Cassie’s first vehicle, Mr. Voorhees said, according to the news release. If you’re a fan of the theater, you can help them out by voting in Honda’s Project Drive-In. Visit and vote to save McHenry’s outdoor theater. ••• Support local firefighters: The Cary Fire Protection District is celebrating 100 years of service to the communities it serves. As part of the celebration, CFPD will host a semi-formal Ballroom Dance this coming Saturday (Sept. 14) at the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn. The dance is scheduled from 7 p.m. to midnight. A live orchestra will provide music. Hors d’oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be open. Tickets are $20 each and can be bought at Station 1, 400 Cary-Algonquin Road, Cary, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily or from any CFPD firefighter. Tickets also will be available at the door.

Tokyo wins bid to host 2020 Olympics The ASSOCIATED PRESS BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Tokyo was awarded the 2020 Olympics on Saturday, capitalizing on its reputation as a “safe pair of hands” and defying concerns about the Fukushima nuclear crisis. Tokyo defeated Istanbul 60-36 in the final round of secret voting by the International Olympic Committee. Madrid was eliminated earlier after an initial tie with Istanbul. Tokyo, which hosted the 1964 Olympics, billed itself as the reliable choice at a time of global political and economic uncertainty – a message that resonated with the IOC. “Tokyo can be trusted to be the safe pair of hands and much more,” bid leader and IOC member Tsunekazu Takeda said in the final presentation. “Our case today is simple. Vote for Tokyo and you vote for guaranteed delivery. ... Tokyo is the right partner at the right time.” Tokyo had been on the defensive in the final days of the campaign because of mount-

In the final presentation, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe gave the IOC assurances that the Fukushima leak was not a threat to Tokyo and took personal responsibility for keeping the

games safe. “Let me assure you the situation is under control,” Abe said. “It has never done and will never do any damage to Tokyo.” Abe gave further assurances when pressed on the issue by Norwegian IOC member Gerhard Heiberg. “It poses no problem what-


soever,” Abe said in Japanese, adding that the contamination was limited to a small area and had been “completely blocked.” “There are no health-related problems until now, nor will there be in the future,” he said. “I make the statement to you in the most emphatic and unequivocal way.” Tokyo Electric Power Co., Fukushima’s operator, has acknowledged that tons of radioactive water has been seeping into the Pacific from the plant for more than two years after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami led to meltdowns at three of its reactors. Recent leaks from tanks storing radioactive water used to cool the reactors have added to fears that the amount of contaminated water is getting out of hand. With Madrid’s bid dogged by questions over Spain’s economic crisis and Istanbul handicapped by political unrest and the civil war in neighboring Syria, Tokyo proved to be the least risky choice for the IOC.

Chicago tries to tighten concealed-carry law The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Officials in Chicago – where gun violence has persisted despite some of the nation’s toughest handgun restrictions – are attempting an end run around a new state law that allows the public possession of concealed firearms. A City Council committee approved an ordinance Friday that would require Chicago bars and restaurants that serve alcohol to ban firearms. Those that don’t could lose their liquor licenses. The proposal, which still must be voted on by the full council, is stricter than the law approved by the Illinois Legislature earlier this year. That measure

bans firearms from establishments where alcohol sales account for at least half of revenues. “The City Council believes that booze and bullets don’t mix,” Chicago Alderman Ed Burke said. The effort is the latest in the ongoing tug-of-war between officials in Illinois’ urban areas who say looser gun laws will lead to more crime and lawmakers and gun-rights advocates who say restrictions violate their Second Amendment right to bear arms. Todd Vandermyde, a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association, said city officials didn’t have the authority to circumvent state law. He also

Towers scrape new heights with ‘vanity’ spires trend The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Tall buildings just aren’t what they used to be. The Chicago-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has released a report noting that the developers of many new super-skyscrapers have been sticking huge, “useless” needles on top of them so they can be marketed as being among the world’s tallest. The trend means that many towers now appearing on lists of super-tall buildings actually have fewer usable floors and lower roofs than the old behemoths they are knocking out of the top ranks. New York City’s unfinished One World Trade Center is listed as being among the top offenders, thanks to the 408-foot needle installed on its

because somebody doesn’t like the law that was passed?” Illinois was the last state in the nation Pat to still have a Quinn ban on the conIllinois cealed carry of governor firearms when a federal judge ruled in December that the law was unconstitutional. The court also gave the Legislature until July to approve a measure legalizing it. At the time, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel made clear he would continue to take on the gun lobby and said he would advocate for “sensible gun

16 hours of gun training and passed a background check to obtain a concealed carry permit for $150. It also made a list of places – including schools, libraries and buses and trains – off limits to guns. Gov. Pat Quinn, a Chicago Democrat, used his amendatory veto to change the bill, saying it wasn’t restrictive enough. He wanted guns banned from any business where alcohol is served and to limit gun owners to carrying one concealed gun and one ammunition clip holding up to 10 rounds, in addition to other changes. But lawmakers voted to override Quinn’s changes and pass the law as originally approved.

laws” that would protect the people of Chicago from guns and gangs. Some aldermen vowed to fight the court’s ruling, which came as the city was about to record more than 500 homicides for the year. Chicago police say the city has seen 100 fewer homicides and nearly 500 fewer shooting victims over the past 11 months compared to the same period last year. They also say they’ve seized more than 4,800 illegal firearms so far in 2013 – more than any department in the country. In May, lawmakers approved compromise legislation that allows anyone with a valid Firearm Owners Identification card and who has completed

roof, but it’s hardly the worst in terms of “vanity height.” The entire top 40 percent of Dubai’s Burj Al Arab is purely decorative. The council, which is seen as a leading authority on skyscrapers, says 44 of the world’s 72 tallest buildings got over the symbolic 300 meter mark by adding a decorative spire. The phenomenon of adding vanity height to a building is nothing new. In 1930, the developers of New York’s Chrysler Building famously won a race to become the world’s tallest by secretly assembling a 125-foottall steel spire in the tower’s tip, and then hoisting it into place only after competitors at 40 Wall Street had finished adding floors to their building.

City to pay $2M in female bias claim against fire department The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – The city of Chicago is set to pay nearly $2 million to settle a lawsuit filed by women who claimed

they were denied jobs as firefighters because the department’s physical fitness test discriminated against female applicants. The 138 women sued after passing a written exam but failing the physical test. The lawsuit claimed the exam tested pure physical strength, not whether a candidate was capable of doing the job. The city has since begun using a different fitness exam developed by the International Association of Firefight-

ers. Marni Willenson, an attorney for the women, says the new test more closely simulates firefighting. “Lots and lots of those women are not only capable of doing the job. They’ll be great at it,” Willenson told a local newspaper. The City Council’s Finance Committee approved a $1.98 million settlement on Friday. The money will be split among 50 women who are now older than the de-

partment’s age limit of 38. Some of the other women are now going through the process of being hired. The lead plaintiff in the case, Samantha Vasich, is one of the women planning to retake the test. She said she’s been fit her entire life and that it was “heartbreaking” to come close but not pass the physical exam. She said she’s going after the job again in part to teach her daughter not to give up.

8STATE BRIEFS Chicago police seize $10M in drugs, guns

Illinois sales tax receipts rise 11 percent

CHICAGO – A 33-year-old Chicago man has been arrested after police say they found $10 million worth of drugs as well as guns and cash inside his home. In a statement, Chicago police say Jose Corona, who also uses the name Margarito Raygoza, is a gang member. They say they found bulk quantities of heroin, cocaine and crystal methamphetamine and about 50 pounds of marijuana during a search of his home Thursday. They also found two handguns, $47,000 in cash and three vehicles – two of which they say were used to transport contraband. It was unclear as of Saturday if Corona had an attorney. He was in custody on charges of drug possession and was scheduled for a bond hearing on Saturday.

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois sales tax receipts rose 11 percent in August. Strong automobile sales likely helped lift the numbers. That runs counter to the state government’s forecast of flat sales tax growth for the fiscal year that began July 1. The (Champaign) News-Gazette reported that in the first two months of the fiscal year, receipts have grown $108 million, or more than 8 percent, above last year’s level. Jim Muschinske is revenue manager for the state’s Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability. He said the results are “a little surprising.” But he cautions against reading too much into the bump, saying that “there’s still a lot of time for that to change.” He attributed the gains to good auto sales.

Man admits Alton killing, gets 26 years in prison

Shedd Aquarium to unveil teen learning lab

EDWARDSVILLE – A southwestern Illinois man has been sentenced to 26 years in prison after pleading guilty to reduced charges related to a 2010 shooting that killed a man and wounded the victim’s brother. Thirty-four-year-old Rodney Mike entered the pleas Friday in Madison County Circuit Court to charges of second-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm. He had been charged with first-degree murder. Mike admitted to fatally shooting 24-year-old JaMarco Anthony during the victim’s May 2010 birthday celebration at a former American Legion post in Alton. Police say the facility was being used as an illegal nightclub. Anthony’s brother, Jerrod Anthony, was wounded. Mike’s trial had been scheduled to begin Monday.

CHICAGO – Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium is getting ready to unveil a free learning lab for teenagers that will be open three days a week. Shedd renovated a room with input from teens, adding Apple workstations, iPads and floorto-ceiling whiteboards. Other equipment will help teens produce videos and podcasts and conduct their own research. Students from Shedd’s learning programs will act as mentors in the lab. Aquarium research biologists and technology specialists will provide a variety of workshops and guidance. The lab will launch with an open house for current high school students Sept. 21. Students must register by Sept. 17. Starting Sept. 24, the lab will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

The Fed faces a job market that’s healing but still ailing The ASSOCIATED PRESS

AP photo

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada makes his way to the Senate floor Friday on Capitol Hill in Washington to introduce a resolution to authorize military action to support President Barack Obama’s request for a strike against Syria.

WASHINGTON – Just how sturdy is the U.S. job market? That’s the key question the Federal Reserve will face when it decides later this month whether to reduce its economic stimulus. The answer depends on where you look. The economy has added jobs for 35 straight months. Unemployment has reached a 4½-year low of 7.3 percent. Layoffs are dwindling. Yet other barometers of the job market point to chronic weakness. Here’s a look at the job market’s vital signs as the Fed’s decision nears:


Syria, budget and debt top congressional agenda The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Congress returns to work facing a momentous vote on whether the United States should attack Syria, a question that overshadows a crowded and contentious agenda of budget fights, health care, farm policy and possible limits on the government’s surveillance of millions of Americans. Back Monday after a fiveweek break, many lawmakers stand as a major obstacle to President Barack Obama’s promised strikes against Syria amid fears of U.S. involvement in an extended Mideast war and public fatigue after more than a decade of conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama insists the world must act. He blames Syrian President Bashar Assad for gassing his own people, killing 1,429 civilians, including

426 children. The Syrian government has denied responsibility for the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack outside Damascus, and blames rebels. On Wednesday, the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the first showdown Senate vote is likely over a resolution authorizing the “limited and specified use” of U.S. armed forces against Syria for no more than 90 days and barring American ground troops from combat. A final vote in the 100-member chamber is expected at week’s end. “I think we’re going to get 60 votes. It’s a work in progress,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Friday. Support for the president is stronger in the Senate than in the Republican-controlled House. There, Obama faces a difficult path to victory de-

spite the backing of Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California for military strikes. The Syria vote poses a dilemma for Obama’s Democratic allies in Congress. Many strongly opposed the war in Iraq but are reluctant to undercut a president from their own party. The crucial player is Pelosi, a proven vote-getter. “A lot of members have constituents who have not been persuaded and I think a part of that inability to be persuaded is that they’re thinking about Iraq,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said Friday after one of many classified briefings for lawmakers. “That’s what I’m hearing in my district even from people who are extremely supportive of the president.”

The unemployment rate slid in August to 7.3 percent, its lowest level since Decem-

ber 2008. Unemployment had peaked in October 2009 at 10 percent and has since fallen more or less steadily. Since then, the number of people who say they have jobs has risen by 5.7 million. And the number of those who say they’re unemployed has dropped by nearly 4.1 million. But the rate has been falling, in part, for a bad reason: People are dropping out of the labor force. Once people without a job stop looking for one, the government no longer counts them as unemployed.

JOB CREATION Since the Great Recession officially ended in June 2009, the American economy has added nearly 5.6 million jobs. Yet that hasn’t been nearly enough to fill the hole left

by the recession. The United States still has 1.9 million fewer jobs than the 138 million it had when the recession officially began in December 2007. But job creation seems to be slowing. From January through April this year, employers added a robust 205,000 jobs a month. In the four months since, they’ve added only 155,000.

LOW-QUALITY JOBS The jobs the economy is generating this year have tended to be low-paying, part-time or both. More than 45 percent of the 1.44 million jobs added this year come from three generally low-paying industries: department stores and other retailers; hotels and restaurants; and temporary services.

Border groups want more efficient Mexico crossings The ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN DIEGO – Under the watch of a Border Patrol agent, U.S. and Mexican pastors set up two small altars – one on each side of a towering border fence – for a Sunday service that spans two countries. The priests then break bread simultaneously and hold up their challises to the tightly woven metal barrier. The guitar player is in Mexico, strumming a song led by clergy on the U.S. side. The buzzing of a passing Border Patrol officer on an all-terrain vehicle interrupts the music. The religious service is one of myriad ways that life is seeping across the border post 9/11 as Congress considers spending billions on further fortification. Ranchers, deputies and lawmakers from border states have long pleaded

for federal help, saying their areas were overrun by people entering the U.S. illegally and armed smugglers. But today there is growing opposition along the nearly 2,000-mile boundary to more agents and fences. They include U.S. ministers, business leaders and mayors who say those measures have reached their maximum effectiveness. The crackdown in the past decade should be applauded for bringing detentions of illegal crossers to historic lows – but ports of entry have been overlooked, said former El Paso Mayor John Cook, the director of the Border Mayors Association, representing U.S. and Mexican mayors. Hours-long waits and overtaxed officers have become the norm at crossings, costing the region billions by deterring Mexican shoppers and

Study: E-cigarettes as effective as patches in quitting smoking The ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON – Electronic cigarettes worked just as well as nicotine patches to help smokers quit, according to the first study to compare them. E-cigarettes are battery-operated products that look like real cigarettes and turn nicotine into a vapor inhaled by the user. Since the devices hit the market nearly a decade ago, sales have spiked so quickly some analysts predict they will outsell traditional cigarettes within a decade. E-cigarettes are often marketed as a less harmful alternative to traditional smokes and come in flavors including cinnamon, vanilla and cherry. “This research provides an important benchmark for e-cigarettes,” said Chris Bullen, director of the National Institute for Health Innovation at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, the study’s lead author. Until now, there has been little information about the effectiveness or safety of e-cigarettes. “We have now shown they are about as effective as a standard nicotine replacement product.” Bullen and colleagues recruited 657 adult smokers in Auckland who wanted to quit for the study. Nearly 300 got nicotine-containing e-cigarettes while roughly the same number got nicotine patches. Just over 70 people got place-

bo e-cigarettes without any nicotine. Each group used the e-cigarettes or patches for 13 weeks. After six months, similar rates of smokers – 6 to 7 percent – managed to quit after using either the nicotine-containing e-cigarettes or patches. Only 4 percent of smokers using the placebo e-cigarettes successfully quit. Among smokers who hadn’t managed to quit, nearly 60 percent of those using e-cigarettes had cut down the number of cigarettes smoked by at least half versus 41 percent of those using nicotine patches. Smokers were also much bigger fans of the e-cigarettes; nearly 90 percent of users said they would recommend them to a friend compared to just over half of people who got patches. Researchers also found similar rates of side effects in smokers that used the e-cigarettes and the patches. The most common side effect in all groups was breathing problems. The study was published online Sunday in the journal Lancet and presented at a meeting of the European Respiratory Society in Barcelona, Spain. The e-cigarettes used in the study were provided free by the company and the study was paid for by the Health Research Council of New Zealand, a government funder.

8NATION BRIEFS 3 rescued after helicopter ices on Alaska volcano

Dive signals treasure at pirate ship wreck

Two researchers and their pilot were rescued Friday from a remote Alaska volcano after freezing rain left thick ice on their helicopter’s blades. Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said the rescue came at about 5 p.m. Friday. The three were caught in a freezing rainstorm Wednesday evening. Pilot Sam Egli, United States Geological Survey geophysicist John Paskievitch, and University of Alaska-Fairbanks researcher Taryn Lopez were not injured. They were attempting to monitor volcano equipment when “the weather moved in,” Egli said. The work is part of an assignment to also repair permanent monitoring equipment on volcanoes in the area known as the Valley of 10,000 Smokes. Freezing fog enveloped the research area and iced over the helicopter’s rotator blades.

BOSTON – A recent dive at the site of the only authenticated pirate ship wreck in U.S. waters has signaled the possible location of even greater treasures. Already 200,000 artifacts, from gold to guns, have been documented from the site of the Whydah, which sank during a ferocious storm off Cape Cod in 1717. Undersea explorer Barry Clifford located the wreck site in 1984. But he only recently learned that 400,000 coins were stolen from two boats the Whydah raided in the weeks before it sank. The final dive Sept. 1 at the end of a three-day trip found an area heavy with metal, including what appears to be coins, some stacked. Now, Clifford plans to return to the site as soon as weather permits.

delaying U.S. shipments, border mayors say. They favor expanding “trusted traveler” programs that give passes to pre-vetted crossers, digital fingerprinting and other technology to make ports of entry more secure, though Congress hasn’t addressed those ideas. “We don’t need more Border Patrol agents – we need more customs agents,” Cook said. “Basically, we have 20th century infrastructure and for the most part, a 19th century policy, trying to facilitate trade in the 21st century.” A bill passed by the Democratic-led Senate in June calls for an additional 20,000 Border Patrol agents, 700 miles of fencing and high-tech detection devices. The proposed measures are tied to overhauling laws to address illegal immigration, including providing a path to citizenship for some.

Egypt launches new assault against Sinai militants The ASSOCIATED PRESS CAIRO – Egyptian helicopter gunships and tanks pounded suspected hideouts and weapon caches of Islamic militants on Saturday in the northern Sinai Peninsula in what locals say is the largest operation in the lawless region for years. Nine militants and two soldiers were killed during the raids, security officials said. Officials say the military is hunting hundreds of militants believed to be responsible for a series of attacks in the region they overran after the fall of autocrat Hosni Mubarak in 2011. The militants, the officials say, belong to a number of well-known al-Qaida-inspired groups that seek the

establishment of an Islamic Caliphate in northern Sinai, a region bordering Israel and the Gaza Strip. Attacks in the region have increased following the July 3 military coup that toppled President Mohammed Morsi, an Islamist, prompting the military offensive. Early Saturday, residents say they saw trucks and armored vehicles pour into the area. Some said they hadn’t seen soldiers on foot in their villages in decades. Communications were jammed for hours, as authorities seized control of two telephone exchanges. Military helicopters hovered overhead in a dozen villages concentrated the towns of Rafah and Sheikh Zuweyid,

security officials said. Airstrikes targeted shacks believed to be gathering points of militants, they said. Soldiers later stormed homes searching for suspected fighters. “Successive strikes are aimed at causing paralysis of the militant groups and cutting communications between each other,” a security official said. “The offensive is carried out within a timeframe where there will be periods of calm for intelligence before resuming once again.” “We aim for cleansing the whole region of militants and prevent them from coming back,” he added. Other officials said two soldiers were killed in a nighttime attack by militants in Sheikh

Zuweyid in northern Sinai. The soldiers were there as part of the offensive. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to publicly brief journalists. In a statement, Army spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said nine suspected militants were killed Saturday and nine others detained. Earlier, another official said “dozens” were wounded in the Sinai offensive. Conflicting casualty figures come from militants taking away the corpses of their comrades and treating their wounded, a security official said. Smoke could be seen rising from villages and troops set up a cordon to prevent militants from escaping as others combed the area, he said.

Pakistani militants prepare for war Conflict feared once U.S. troops exit Afghanistan By KATHY GANNON The Associated Press AP file photo

A Syrian man who lives in Beirut holds up a placard during a vigil Aug. 21 protesting the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria in front the United Nations headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon.

What makes chemical weapons ‘red line’ in Syria? By KARIN LAUB and SHARON COHEN The Associated Press The ghastly images reveal rows of the dead, many of them children, wrapped in white burial shrouds, and survivors gasping for air, their bodies twitching, foam oozing from mouths. This was unlike any other scene in Syria’s brutal civil war, where bombs and bullets have killed and maimed tens of thousands over the past 2½ years. The Aug. 21 attack on the rebel-held suburbs of Damascus was carried out, the U.S. says, with chemical weapons. It crossed what President Barack Obama calls a “red line” and, he says, demands a military response against the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad. But in a war where only a fraction of more than 100,000 Syrian deaths have come from poison gas – the Obama administration says more than 1,400 died in the attack – what is it about chemical weapons that set them apart in policy and perception? Some experts say chemical weapons belong in a special category. They point to the moral and legal taboos that date to World War I, when the gassing of thousands of soldiers led to a worldwide treaty banning the use of these weapons. The experts also say these chemicals are not just repugnant but pose national

security risks. “The use of nerve gas or other types of deadly chemical agents clearly violates the widely and long-established norms of the international community,” said Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association, a nonpartisan research group in Washington. “Each time these rules are broken and there’s an inadequate response, the risk that some of the world’s most dangerous weapons will be used in even further atrocities is going to increase – that’s why here and why now,” he added. Others contend there is no distinction and that the U.S. should focus on protecting Syrian civilians, not on preventing the use of a particular type of weapon against them. “The Syrian regime commits war crimes and crimes against humanity every day,” said Rami Abdel-Rahman of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. “A war crime is a war crime.” The Britain-based anti-regime monitor of the fighting says it has been compiling a list of the names of the dead from the Aug. 21 attack and that its toll has reached 502. The exact number of those killed is not known. The Obama administration reported 1,429 people died, including 426 children, citing intelligence reports. Others have provided lower numbers. The Assad government blames rebels.

ISLAMABAD – Militants in Pakistan’s most populous province are said to be training for what they expect will be an ethnic-based civil war in neighboring Afghanistan after foreign forces withdraw in 16 months, according to analysts and a senior militant. In the past two years the number of Punjab-based militants deploying to regions bordering on Afghanistan has tripled and is now in the thousands, says analyst Mansur Mehsud. He runs the FATA Institute, an Islamabad-based think tank studying the mix of militant groups that operate in Pakistan’s tribal belt running along much of the 1,600-mile Afghan-Pakistan border. Mehsud, himself from South Waziristan where militants also hide out, says more than 150 militant groups operate in the tribal regions, mostly in mountainous, heavily forested North Waziristan. Dotted with hideouts, it is there that Al Qaida

While militants from Punjab province have long sought refuge and training in the tribal regions, they were fewer in number and confined their hostility to Pakistan’s neighbor and foe, India. All that is changing, say analysts. “Before, they were keep-

ing a low profile. But just in the last two or three years hundreds have been coming from Punjab,” said Mehsud. “Everyone knows that when NATO and the American troops leave Afghanistan there will be fighting between Pashtuns and non-Pashtuns.” And the Punjabi militants will side with the Afghan Taliban, who are mostly Pashtun, Afghanistan’s dominant ethnic group and the majori-

Official: U.N. report could be ready in days • SYRIA Continued from page A1 been ready to act last week but held off when Obama declared that he would seek the backing of Congress. French President Francois Hollande’s announcement appeared to catch French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius off guard. Earlier on Friday, Fabius told EU foreign ministers that there was no need to wait for the U.N. report because it would simply confirm what was already known – that the chemical weapons attack had occurred – but would not say who was responsible. Hollande indicated Saturday that the U.N. report could be ready in a matter of days, and he would then be prepared to make a decision on a French intervention. “I said ... that I wanted to wait for the inspectors’ report, which I know will be ready within a very reasonable time period, that is, not that far from the decision of the U.S. Congress,” he told French television after meeting with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman in Nice, France. “So, at that moment, I’ll have all the necessary elements that will let me tell the French people the decision I have made for France.” However, Martin Nesirky, chief U.N. spokesman, insisted that there would be no preliminary report. The report on the Aug. 21 attack will be given to the U.N. Security Council and

other member states once the lab analysis is complete, Nesirky said. “We are not saying when that will be, except as soon as feasible,” he told The Associated Press. “This is a scientific timeline, not a political timeline.” Kerry traveled Saturday from Lithuania to Paris to meet with French official and representatives of the Arab League. He joined French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in hailing the EU statement. “Some don’t believe in taking military action ever at all,” Kerry said. “And some want to wait for one thing or another, but the overwhelming support is moving in the direction of holding the Assad regime accountable.” Kerry added: “This is growing, not receding in terms of the global sense of outrage of what has happened.” Fabius said if no action were taken, there would be little hope for a political solution to the crisis. Obama and other administration officials were preparing a dayslong push to gain public and congressional support for a strike on Syria. Obama himself was to sit down Monday for interviews with a half-dozen broadcast and cable networks. The challenges they faced were apparent Saturday. Sen. Mark Pryor, an Arkansas Democrat facing a tough bid for a third term, said he would oppose military action, and at least 150 people picketed outside the White House against Obama’s request.

Concealed-carry permit is good for 5 years • GUNS Continued from page A1 discharged members of the U.S. Armed Forces. A permit is good for five years, and renewing it requires taking a three-hour refresher course. The new law forbids carrying in a number of locations, mandates increased mental health reporting requirements and allows local law enforcement to object to granting a license to anyone they feel is a danger to himself or others. The class standards released by the state police include a minimum of two hours on firearm safety, three hours on basic marksmanship, three

hours on care and handling of a concealable firearm, four hours on applicable state and federal laws, and four hours on weapons handling and live fire. At least 300,000 people are expected by the state police to apply for concealed-carry permits in the first year. Gov. Pat Quinn held onto the bill for a month before using his amendatory veto powers to rewrite it July 2, one week before the state’s concealed-carry ban was set to expire under an extended court order. Lawmakers were forced to meet in special session July 9 and overrode Quinn’s veto hours before the deadline. Had the deadline expired without a law in place, there would have been no law in

place putting any limitations on carrying concealed weapons in public. Concealed carry will not be allowed on mass transit, in schools and college campuses, government buildings and courthouses, parks, stadiums, hospitals and festivals. It is allowed in restaurants and other businesses that serve alcohol only if alcohol makes up less than half of their total sales. Businesses have the right to forbid concealed weapons from their premises if they post a sign banning them. The bill allows permit holders to keep loaded weapons in a secured vehicle, meaning that they can be left there if going to one of the places where concealed carry is banned.

Applicants face steep competition for funds • SCHOOLS Continued from page A1 competition that would disburse $120 million to districts that demonstrate bold ideas to enhance classrooms and the relationship between teachers and students. But in McHenry County, many districts either don’t meet eligibility requirements or don’t want to invest the time and money to win a competition with unfavorable odds. “There are so many strings attached with Race to the Top money that school districts don’t want to take it on,” Regional Superintendent of Schools Leslie Schermerhorn said. “It would require so much extra work, and I think districts often don’t see the results from that program.” The 439 applicants who have submitted their intent to apply for the $120 million face steep competition. Only five to 10 applicants are expected to receive awards, which could range from $4 million to $30 million each, the Department of Education has said. In Illinois, only 10 school districts, including Woodstock

By the numbers Nationwide, 439 schools submitted intentions to apply Aug. 23 for the competition’s $120 million in federal funding. In Illinois, 10 Illinois school districts submitted: • Chicago Public Schools • East St. Louis School District • Evanston/Skokie CCSD 65 • Horizon Science Academy McKinley • Matteson SD 162 • Rockford Public Schools • Round Lake District 116 • Sandoval District 501 • Urbana District 116 • Woodstock District 200

Source: U.S. Department of Education District 200, have signified their intentions. District 200 officials declined to comment on their plans for the federal money and whether they will officially submit an application by the Oct. 3 deadline. If district officials do follow through, they will have to outline plans on how to accelerate student achievement, better meet individual student needs and enhance learning environ-

ments that are aligned with college-and-career-ready standards, according to the education department. To qualify for the newest Race to the Top competition, districts generally must educate a minimum of 2,000 total students with at least 40 percent of students from low-income families. Officials at Huntley District 158 often look for grant opportunities but didn’t consider the Race to the Top competition because of the eligibility requirements, Chief Academic Officer Mike Moan said. “For us, it was a nonstarter,” Moan said. “We often don’t qualify because our low-income population is not even close.” Aside from the eligibility issue, McHenry District 156 didn’t entertain pursuing the competition since the application process often requires too much time and manpower. “You can put a lot of time and effort in writing grants, but you could be nowhere near their radar because they could be dealing with schools with more need,” said Brent Raby, district director of curriculum and instruction.

Coroner is more than a 9-to-4:30 job Becoming a public official can be a difficult transition for some, particularly with the “public” portion of that title. The public – i.e. taxpayers, voters, etc. – can be demanding. But the public also pays public officials’ salaries and the salaries of each and every staff member, and public officials should expect the public to hold them accountable for all aspects of their jobs. Communicating pertinent information to the public in a timely fashion is an important part of every public official’s job. Because public officials can’t possibly meet with each member of their constituency on an individual basis, one means of communicating important public messages is through the news media. Most individuals count on news reports to keep up to date on matters of public importance. The transition to “public” official has been difficult so far for new McHenry County Coroner Anne Majewski. In an unfortunate email sent late last month to the Northwest Herald and all northwest suburban and Chicago-area media outlets, Majewski demonstrated that she doesn’t understand the “public” part of her job. “Please do not call after the office closes at 4:30 pm as it generates overtime which costs the taxpayers unnecessary money. Any and all press releases will be done during normal business hours unless I deem otherwise necessary. Thank you for this consideration! Anne L. Majewski M.D.” Unfortunately, significant community events – homicides, fatal car accidents, drug overdoses, etc. – don’t always conveniently occur between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (or Tuesday through Friday during holiday weeks such as last week). And community members should not have to wait until Monday – or Tuesday during a holiday week – to learn important public details about a tragic public death that occurred, say, on a Friday night, just because that is more convenient to a public official such as the coroner. Under the past coroner’s administration, deputy coroners, all of whom are experienced professionals, were allowed to speak to the media and offer basic details and appropriate comments about death investigations, including after hours. But Majewski, who earns a salary of $104,750, has decided not to allow her deputies to speak to the media under any circumstances. That’s her prerogative, but if that’s the case, she’ll need to find a way to handle communicating during off hours. The public has a right to receive pertinent public information in a timely fashion. So far, Majewski is not meeting expectations on that very basic part of her job.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Kindness spreads To the Editor: In McHenry, our kindness revolution is off to a great start. When we ran out of “Random Acts of Kindness” bumper stickers, a local man was so inspired by the extraordinary support in the Aug. 3 edition in the Northwest Herald, that he provided several hundred more bumper stickers. They are available to the public, and you may pick up as many as you can use at McHenry City Hall or the Chamber of Commerce office on Green Street.

Huntley ComEd project To the Editor: Referencing “ComEd project raises ire” (Sept. 1), the author notes, “High-voltage towers emit

invisible waves of electricity that rapidly reduce in strength the farther a person moves away.” True. Further, referencing the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, he notes, “Scientific studies have shown weak or nonexistent association between heightened exposure and cancers in both children and adults.” In prior employment, I used sensitive scientific equipment, and learned that the above is true in limited context. The NIEHS scientists might have ignored, or ComEd chose to ignore, at least one key item in these studies. This is the level of power carried by the studied line, compared to “rated” line capacity. If power is about half or less the “rated” capacity, then NIEHS is mostly correct. If power carried attains, or exceeds, about threequarters of the “rated” capacity, then line losses start to rapidly rise. This rise has two effects. One, a much higher level of “invisible waves” to initiate cancer, etc. The other, as the name suggests, is a loss of power. This is a direct energy loss to ComEd. The “scientific studies” should

have included power level of studied lines. If less than half rated capacity, concerns would be minimal. Hence, the term “weak or nonexistent.” If high power levels are transmitted, then local residents become exposed to ever-greater dangers. This line, initially, may have power levels notably below line capacity. However, with future growth and rising demands, this line would become a danger. I hope this adds some clarification.

Scouts. With the Boy Scouts being a very central part of my life, this decision affects me very much on a personal and troop level. I personally support this decision. Being homosexual doesn’t make you less excellent on a personal level, which means you should be allowed to receive the rank advancements and the other benefits of being a Boy Scout and, eventually, an Eagle Scout. Their ruling on homosexuality as an adult leader – that you aren’t allowed to be an adult leader if you are openly homosexual – makes much less sense, especially if that leader had been awarded his Eagle rank as a quality member of a troop.

Federal lawsuit trying to halt school voucher program is unjust Before Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department move forward with a lawsuit to block vouchers for thousands of lowincome students trapped in failing Louisiana public schools, he ought to speak to parents whose children benefit from the statewide voucher measure called the Louisiana Scholarship Program. One of those parents is Lakisha Fuselier. Fuselier is a single mother of four. Her 8-year-old son, Albert, is a part of the voucher program. A spokeswoman in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s office emailed me her story, which first appeared in The Daily Advertiser last December. “Lakisha Fuselier wanted to do something to help her son, Albert. He was struggling in public school classes,” the Daily Advertiser writes. “His academic problems were compounded by a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. ... She knew he needed

individual attention, something he was not getting in public school.” In response to my request, Ms. Fuselier provided the following statement to the governor’s office: “When I heard about this program, I jumped on the chance to try something new for my son. I see the difference it has made in him from an academic standpoint and as an individual. He loves school now and is more outgoing. I hope to be able to get my other kids in the program because I know that it works.” Attorney General Holder’s stated reason for suing to eliminate the voucher program in Louisiana is that it “impedes the desegregation process.” The government argues that allowing parents to transfer their children out of failing Louisiana schools would upset the racial balance of schools in districts still under federal desegregation orders. “There’s no denying the state’s racist history of school segregation

Views Cal Thomas or its ugly efforts ... to undermine desegregation orders...,” writes the Washington Post. “... But the situation today bears no resemblance to those terrible days. Since most of the students using vouchers are black, it is, as State Education Superintendent John White pointed out ... ‘a little ridiculous’ to argue that the departure of mostly black students to voucher schools would make their home school systems less white.” In a recent appearance on “Meet the Press,” Jindal said, “There are too many kids in this country today trapped in poor neighborhoods with poor, failing schools. In Louisiana, we’re doing something about it.” Is Holder really saying he’d rather

they didn’t? President and Mrs. Obama can provide private schooling for their daughters. The president’s attorney general wants to deny the same to Louisianians whose only hope out of poverty is a decent education. Is that fair? The Washington Post editorialized against the administration’s lawsuit, calling it “bewildering, if not downright perverse ... to use the banner of civil rights to bring a misguided suit that would block these disadvantaged students from getting the better educational opportunities they are due.” Next to a right to life, the most important right is a good education. Without it, low-income children are denied the American Dream. It is the ultimate civil-rights issue. The racial makeup of a school that fails to provide quality education shouldn’t matter. What difference does it make if a child fails in

an all-black school or an integrated one? An “F’ is an “F.” According to The Weekly Standard, more people have applied for vouchers in Louisiana than are available: 10,000 in 2012, with only 5,000 receiving them, and 12,000 this year, with 8,000 awarded by lottery. Education Secretary Arne Duncan tried to end the school choice program in D.C., but reversed himself in the face of a public outcry. Minority parents should amplify that outcry in Louisiana and across the country. If Republicans are smart, they will make school choice their issue and reclaim their history of being for civil rights before the Democrats commandeered it. In a cruel reversal of what happened in the 1960s, Democrats now appear to stand in the schoolhouse door, trying to keep poor children out.

FOX RIVER GROVE – In a tight-knit village like Fox River Grove, local events bring old friends together to create new memories. The annual Lions Fest on Saturday at Lions Park was no different. “This is a great way to achieve village camaraderie, enjoy one another’s company and have a good time while raising some money for local causes,” said Rob Kandler, president of the Fox River Grove Lions Club.

Bull Valley Village Administrator Rich Vance said that in the early stages, the village will offer a limited number of yearlong permits on a firstcome, first-served basis. In the future, he envisions the village offering daily passes and possibly services such as dog training. “When we get to doing daily passes, there’s a lot more personnel that’s needed and time,” he said. “But we want to get it open and find out what issues there are, and go from there.” The park will be part of a community center Bull Valley is planning in the area. “The seven-acre dog park is kind of like the first thing that we’re going to do,” Vance said.

By KEVIN P. CRAVER Some new lane changes and road closures are in store for drivers in Algonquin and Huntley this week. • KREUTZER ROAD: Kreutzer Road west of Route 47 will be closed sometime this week as part of the project to extend the road west to Main Street. Drivers can still access the shopping center south of the closed stretch through access points along Route 47. The closure is expected to last a month to six weeks. • ROUTE 31: Expect delays because of lane pattern shifts on Route 31 in the vicinity of Cary Road. Of course, several other projects involving Route 31 in Crystal Lake and Algonquin already are making the drive exciting and fun-filled. • WESTERN BYPASS: Watch for workers and delays as workers continue a $33 million project to build a 2-mile, four-lane highway west of downtown Algonquin to re-

• ROUTES 31 AND 176: Watch for delays as workers continue a $10.18 million improvement of the intersection. • JOHNSBURG ROAD: Only westbound traffic is allowed to travel along the road from Chapel Hill Road to Cherokee Drive. Eastbound traffic is being rerouted through a Route 31, Route 120, Chapel Hill Road detour. Paving is expected to continue on the north side of the road between Spring Grove Road and Riverside Drive, and work will continue this week on lowering the hill west of Riverside Drive. • ROUTE 22: Repaving work is ongoing on Route

22 from Route 14 to Route 12. Expect delays, especially because Route 22 is a designated alternate route for the closed Miller Road. Work is expected to be finished in October. Also watch out for emergency vehicles, given that Route 22 is the main access to Advocate Good Shepherd. Road workers will be giving priority to those vehicles.

• INTERSTATE 90 AND ROUTE 47: Be prepared for delays along Route 47 as work continues to create a full interchange. The completion date for the $69 million project is set for late fall.

• CHARLES J. MILLER ROAD: Work is ongoing to create another two-lane span over the Fox River and widen Miller Road to four lanes with dedicated turn lanes from Route 31 to River Road. The first phase, which consists primarily of building the new span and improving the intersection of Miller and River roads, will cost about $12 million and is anticipated to be finished by the end of October, weather permitting. • ROUTE 120: Expect delays because of a $2.2 million resurfacing project between Route 14 and Charles Road through Woodstock.


Work is ongoing on a $1.28 million project to resurface and improve traffic signals on Crystal Lake Road in McHenry, from Bull Valley Road to Route 120.


Lawrence Road is down to one lane with a temporary traffic signal as workers replace the bridge over Piscasaw Creek. Weidner Road is closed at its intersection with Lawrence Road. The project is scheduled to be finished at the end of October. • HILL ROAD BRIDGE: Hill Road southeast of Richmond remains closed while workers replace a bridge over the north branch of Nippersink Creek. Work is expected to be finished this month. • READ ALL ABOUT IT: You can sign up at NWHerald. com/newsletter to get a weekly email update on road projects throughout construction season.

James Finney, a trainee of the Wauconda Fire District, practices tying a clove hitch on a fire fighting tool during a fire science class Saturday at McHenry County College in Crystal Lake.

Goostree: Biggest strengths are academy, strong ties with area fire departments • FIRE SCIENCE Continued from page B1 the program has grown to include about 200 students a semester and graduates 60 certified firefighters each year. One of the biggest strengths, Goostree said, is the fire academy and strong relationships with area fire departments. He said many colleges do not

offer fire academies, and the students’ ability to get handson training with ladders, hoses and other equipment used by area departments is invaluable. The focus, he said, is on providing each student with the skills and knowledge they will need for promotion. “A lot of students are happy with being paid on-call firefighters and that’s fantastic because we have some small

departments in the area,” Goostree said. “But we want to give everyone all they need to know to continue moving up in their careers.” Colleges in the www. ratings were judged on data from the National Center for Educational Statistics, the Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System and the Carnegie Foundation.

Activities included bingo, treasure hunt • FESTIVAL Continued from page B1 Fox River Grove resident Joe Bajorek munched on some late morning nachos, the scent of other food offerings such as hot dogs and brats coming from the pavilion behind him. The 14-year-old said this was an annual tradition for him. “I’ve been coming since I was really little,” said Bajorek. “I like to see everyone that

comes and it’s important that we raise money for the community.” Bajorek was on his way out, but said he would be back a little later in the afternoon to see some bands and possibly get in on the raffle with some of his friends. Musical entertainment was provided by local bands Icky Bava, Uncle Will and The Availables, among others. Attendees played bingo for prizes and children searched

the beach for buried riches during the children’s treasure hunt. Festivalgoers chilled out with ice cream blizzards and kids clamored around the shaved ice truck, concocting flavors like pink lemon sour and French vanilla. “This is the greatest service organization in the village,” said Village President Bob Nunamaker. “We have a great group of volunteers that help make the village what it is.”

since 2008 that Huntley High made adequate yearly progress. Only 11 high schools throughout the state made adequate yearly progress last year, according to the state board of education. The AYP metric routinely has been criticized for labeling schools as failing even if schools show improvement from year to year and for relying too heavily on standardized test scores. The district overall did not meet adequate yearly progress. Chief Academic Officer Mike Moan detailed the new achievement results to school board members during their meeting Thursday. In the elementary schools, students in 2013 showed improvement in the areas of

By the numbers In the past three years, there has been an improvement of ISAT scores districtwide: n 77 percent of elementary students met or exceeded standards in reading in 2013 n 71 percent of elementary students met or exceeded standards in reading in 2011 n 77 percent of elementary students met or exceeded standards in math in 2013 n 73 percent of elementary students met or exceeded standards in math in 2011 math and reading. But the standardized test results come with a caveat. The state raised the performance level in 2013 on the Illinois Standard Achievement Test to align the standardized test with the new Common Core curriculum

standards. The change on paper dropped the district’s ISAT scores from the 90-point range to the 70-point range. Applying the new standards to the past three years, the district overall is still seeing improvement with its ISAT scores, Moan said. Elementary students districtwide in 2013 met or exceeded standards in reading by 77 percent compared with 71 percent in 2011, under the new standards. For math, 77 percent of students met or exceeded students compared with 73 percent in 2011. The district will be notifying parents of the ISAT changes when the scores are sent home later this year. “We want to make sure parents understand that their student didn’t necessarily change, but that the cut score changed,” Moan said.

Algonquin library to host ‘notorious outlaws’ program NORTHWEST HERALD ALGONQUIN – The Algonquin Area Public Library will host a discussion about frontier lawbreakers and the vigilante justice that marked Illinois before the 20th century. The presentation, “Desperadoes: Notorious Outlaws of Early Illinois,” takes place at 2 p.m. Sept. 15 at the Algonquin Area main library, 2600 Harnish Drive. From the early criminals of Cave-in-Rock to figures such as the Maxwell brothers and Frank Rande, Illinois in the 1800s often was considered a dangerous place. The presentation dives into Illinois’ infamous past – vigilantes and the state’s early attempts at law enforcement – through dozens of images featuring outlaws, jails, wanted posters and more. The event is sponsored by the Illinois Humanities Council’s Road Scholars

Area 4-H clubs join ‘It Can Wait’ campaign NORTHWEST HERALD WOODSTOCK – Local 4-H members have joined more than 20,000 other 4-H’ers across Illinois in a campaign to reduce car crashes caused by texting while driving. The “It Can Wait” campaign encourages drivers to take a pledge to never text while driving. To make the pledge, one may text “4H4ICW” to “50555.” Standard text and data rates apply. Local 4-H’ers are making the push now so preliminary results of their work can be released on “Drive 4 Pledges Day” on Sept. 19. “The members of Illinois 4-H are committed to make a difference in the ‘It Can Wait’ campaign,” Angie Barnard, executive director for the Illinois 4-H Foundation, said in a news release. “By encouraging people to take the pledge, we can help make our state safer and even save lives.” More than 100,000 crashes a year involve drivers who are texting, according to the National Safety Council.

“Teens admit that they text while they drive, even though they know it could be dangerous. We hope taking the pledge will remind them the next time they consider picking up their phone to text while driving.” Angie Barnard Executive director for the Illinois 4-H Foundation “Teens admit that they text while they drive, even though they know it could be dangerous,” Barnard said. “We hope taking the pledge will remind them the next time they consider picking up their phone to text while driving.” Illinois 4-H is joined by AT&T in the campaign.

8LOCAL BRIEF Driving school closes McHenry County locations A driving school with locations in Crystal Lake, Algonquin and McHenry has closed its doors. The Northwest Suburban Driving School posted on its website that the school is no longer in business and all classes are canceled. It did not include a reason for the closure. Several parents, including Kelly Cahill of Crystal Lake, said they received no information about the closing or what happens next. “There is no contact information on the website or anything so everyone is starting to panic,” Cahill said. “I just want to make sure we can get our records.”

Cahill paid more than $400 for her daughter to take the four-week classroom session in June. She has also completed one of the three driving sessions. But without communication from the school, Cahill said they don’t know what will happen next, if their payments will be refunded or if they’ll be able to get certificates of completion. The Northwest Herald was unable to leave a message at the driving school’s office, and the number listed for Ed Pudlo, who is registered as the president of Northwest Suburban Driving School with the Secretary of State, was disconnected.

Bears, Bengals mirror images of each other in ’12 Bears Gameday inside JUDGMENT JAY: Evaluating the Bears’ quarterback is not that easy. BEARS-BENGALS BREAKDOWN: Bears beat writer Kevin Fishbain breaks down the Bengals-Bears game and predicts the winner. FIRST-PLACE BEARS? Columnist Tom Musick says the Bears finishing in first place isn’t a far-fetched idea. Stories on Pages C6-7

Teams finished with identical records last year When the Bears and Cincinnati Bengals look in the mirror, what they may very well see is each other. Cincinnati’s 10-6 record in 2012 was good enough for a wild-card berth and first-round playoff loss to Houston. The Bears lost a tiebreaker to the Minnesota Vikings at 10-6 and ended up watching the playoffs at home. Cincinnati was 22nd in total offense, 18th running and 17th

If not for wrestling, Mike Kelly never would have experienced his Rocky moment in 2010 in Krakow, Poland. “Here I am at this tournament,” said Kelly, a five-time grappling world medal winner who lives in Hebron. “I’m 37 years old. I’m across the mat from a 22-year-old And the Russian. winner is ... And we’re going to get Tokyo wins after it. And bid to host 2020 I’m wrestling for Summer Olympics. See Page C5. Team USA.” And Kelly was on Cloud Nine. No, make that Cloud 10. “I wish all of my buddies from high school could have seen it,” said Kelly, now 39. “This was all of our dream. We played this out a million times.” The old-guy American won, by the way. Now, the entire world of wrestling needs to come together for its biggest match yet. On Sunday in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the International Olympic Committee will meet to decide the future of wrestling. The IOC cut wrestling from its core sports in February, but this weekend’s meeting offers a second chance to save the pinnacle event of the age-old sport, which is competing with squash and a combined bid from baseball and softball for a single spot in the 2020 Games.

passing, 24th in interception percentage, 25th in quarterback sack percentage, 27th in third down efficiency and 12th in points per game. The Bears were 28th in offense, 10th rushing but 29th passing, 28th in percentage intercepted, 27th in quarterback sack percentage, 22nd in thirddown efficiency and 16th in points per game. Defensively, these were two of the NFL’s best in 2012. The Bears were fifth in total defense, eighth against the run

and eighth against the pass while the Bengals were sixth in total defense, 12th vs. the run and seventh vs. the pass. The Bears were second in percentage intercepted by, the Bengals 15th, but the Bengals were third in QB sack percentage and the Bears 11th. The Bears were sixth in third-down efficiency and the Bengals were eighth, the Bears third in points allowed, Cincinnati eighth. The Bears last year were the league’s best with 44 takeaways and second in turnover/ takeaway ratio at plus-20, the Bengals were seventh with 30 takeaways and 11th at plus-4 in turnover/takeaway.

RUNNING FOR CARTER By JEFF ARNOLD HUNTLEY – There was a time not that long ago when Ben Keaty didn’t have enough endurance to run around the cul-de-sac in his family’s neighborhood without having to stop to catch his breath. To consider running any longer was unthinkable – let alone in a formal race environment where the finish line was 3.1 miles from the start. But that’s when the 9-year-old Huntley boy started to think about the obstacles his best friend, Carter Kettner, had endured. And suddenly, completing the Hyundai Hope On Wheels 5K that is part of the Chicago Half Marathon festivities, didn’t seem so daunting. Like he did last year, Ben will spend part of his Sunday morning running in memory of Carter, who was 6 when he died from an malignant brain tumor in 2010. Like last year, Ben expects he might be a little nervous – and perhaps, even a little scared. But once he begins to run, he will remember happier times with Carter and his worries will all but disappear. Ben won’t just run for Carter, but for countless other children stricken with brain cancer who face an uncertain future. “That’s why I’m doing it,” Ben said. “So other kids can be happy like Carter.” Carter Kettner was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 5. Over the next 15 months, with doctors unable to operate because the tumor was so tightly fused to healthy brain tissue, Carter’s family moved from Huntley to Memphis, where Carter underwent 33 radiation treatments in three months.

he NFL has agreed to pay $765 million to settle lawsuits from thousands of former players who have developed dementia and other concussion-related health problems that they say were caused by the game. Sports editor Jon Styf and columnist Tom Musick discuss:

Musick: I usually crack open my copy of 101 Bad Jokes for our Take 2 segments, but nothing is funny about this topic. What do you make of the NFL settlement? Have we reached the end of this story? Styf: The story is clearly not done. But this is the best thing for all parties. Years of litigation would just eat up money on both sides that could be going to help get medical assistance to former players already affected and research to help figure out what is actually going on. The sad part is, the doctors still don’t know nearly enough to properly figure out what makes one player more susceptible than another to long-term head trauma (notice I am not saying concussion) risks. Musick: Per your request, I noticed that you were not saying concussion. What’s important about making that distinction? Styf: The long-term issues come from the quantity of hits, not just the big concussive ones. That distinction is rarely made. Former players have been found to have CTE with zero recorded concussions. Not that concussions are good, but this isn’t about the acute brain injuries, it’s about the longterm head jostling. Now, the hope is that this money goes to the right people and the right research. Musick: I agree, and to take it one step further, here’s hoping that coaches and players at all levels of the game are receptive to that research. Yes, football is a violent sport. Yes, injuries (including head injuries) always will be a part of the game. But if you combine safer helmets with stricter rules and greater awareness among coaches and players, maybe you can improve the long-term quality of life for those who play the game. Styf: I also don’t buy the helmet thing. I’ve heard plenty of times about how helmet research will help this, but I have yet to have seen a helmet that can stop your brain from jostling around inside your head upon impact. That’s the issue. There’s an analogy, of your brain being like the yolk inside an egg. You can’t stop the yolk from moving upon impact, regardless what type of protection you put on the outside of the egg. Think of your brain and impact head injuries in football like that. Limiting contact is the only way to limit head injuries. Musick: So, what is the end game here? Have we reached the point where football players know what they are signing up for, and it’s up to them to weigh the risks? Or is this settlement just the tip of the iceberg? Styf: I think that’s exactly right. The lawsuits were based on the NFL’s denial that these head injuries existed. They denied it for years, and there is pretty good evidence they knew better. So, contact will continue to be limited more and more. And players will have to sign waivers, acknowledging they know what they’re getting into. Like tattoos and guns and cigarettes, it might actually encourage more to play. Musick: And people will continue to watch, and the NFL will continue to make gobs of money, and that $765 million settlement will look like loose change.

Mike Budnik is the recently crowned Combat MMA champion, adding the title to the XFO lightweight belt he won in 2011. The 39-year-old Budnik is also a former professional skater, appearing in the first 10 X Games competitions – long before he turned to punishing his body inside an octagon. Budnik is the owner and lead instructor at Triton MMA School in Woodstock.

Skating is pretty brutal – it’s different than fighting. When I was coming up, if you wanted to learn a trick, you threw it and you fell 100 times before you actually got it. I heard Tony Hawk refer to the falls we take being the equivalent of a good car accident, which meant I spent 10 years getting into car accidents every day.

I never took fighting seriously, I never thought it would turn into anything. I took a fight for fun, won that fight, and never looked back. Honestly, I’ve been sore for 20 years straight. It’s not something I want. It’s not something that I sit here and say, ‘Man, I need to be sore or I need to be banged up.’ But I think [fighting is] just something that I’ve easily been able to excel at because it really doesn’t bother me. I spent so much time beat up from skating. The type of training you’re doing with fighting, you’re getting beat up all the time. The beatings you take in an actual fight are nothing compared to what you go through in training. To be successful, you have to push through all of that intense training and so I think all the years I spent skating kind of numbed me to how bad that actually can be.

What hooked me is that I had this little guy who weighed 135, 140 pounds who invited me to try out his jiu jitsu class and I was a pretty accomplished wrestler when I was younger before I started skating. I’m looking at this guy and I’m saying, ‘You’re not going to be able to do anything to me – this is ridiculous.’ The first day of class, I rolled with him and I think he arm-barred me 57 times. It was handsdown the most humbling experience I had ever been through in my entire life. Some people might look at that as a bad thing, but I was pumped. I loved it and all I wanted to do is learn everything these guys knew.

You get these big guys who come into the gym, they’re all roided out – gym rats that are these big, strong, tough guys who sucker punch people in bars and they think they’re going to be able to come in and be the next UFC champion. I’ve got this little 140-pound guy who I always sic on people because he can hold his own with anyone and so (learning) can be very humbling. But you see this little guy who looks like a 12-year-old boy and when he gets a hold of (the tough guys) and tangles them all up and does what he wants with them and knocks them out, it’s pretty satisfying.

When I got into teaching, I wanted to take it seriously. I didn’t want people to train with me just because I had credentials behind me – because that has nothing to do with teaching. I guess there’s a lot of gyms out there but I really consider my place a school. I think I could take someone and make them tough or fast or strong in a few months. If I trained them and just had them spar every day and lift weights every day and train hard, after three to four months, they’re going to be pretty tough and they’re going to be pretty strong, but they’re not going to be skilled. That’s my focus – I really like working with people who want to come in and really want to focus on developing a skill set. I’m Just Saying is a regular Sunday feature. If there’s someone you’d like to see featured, write to me at or send me a message on Twitter @NWH_JeffArnold.

Edwards wins race Keselowski misses Chase By JENNA FRYER The Associated Press RICHMOND, Va. – NASCAR will have a new champion at the end of the season. For now, it has yet another conspiracy. Reigning champion Brad Keselowski failed to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship Saturday night when an ill-timed caution ruined his run at Richmond International Raceway. Same thing happened to Ryan Newman, who used a pass on eventual winner Carl Edwards with 10 laps to go to take the lead for what should have been enough to get him into the Chase.

Then Clint Bowyer spun three laps later to bring out a caution that ruined Newman’s race. The benefactor? Martin Truex Jr., Bowyer’s teammate at Michael Waltrip Racing, who struggled the entire race. Newman and Truex were locked into a race for the second of two wild cards in the 12-driver Chase field, and the race win would give it to Newman. Only he lost the lead on pit road, wound up finishing third, and Truex grabbed the final spot in the Chase. Conspiracy theorists immediately accused Bowyer of spinning on purpose to help his teammate. A despondent Newman wasn’t sure. “They are teammates. I don’t know if he looked at the scoring pylon, knew I was leading, it doesn’t matter,” Newman said. “If that was the case, I’ll find

out one way or the other. At the same time we still had the opportunity to make our own destiny and win it on pit road, and we didn’t. That being said, we’re out.” Truex, who broke his right wrist two weeks ago in a crash at Bristol and has been racing with a cast, said he had no idea who even caused the caution. “I don’t know. I don’t have any thoughts on it. I raced my [butt] off all night long, that’s all I can do. I didn’t even know [Bowyer] brought out the caution until after the race.” Kasey Kahne claimed the first wild-card berth, and Joey Logano, Keselowski’s teammate at Penske Racing, qualified for the Chase for the first time in his career, by rounding out the top 10 in points. Logano edged four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon for the final spot in the field.


Williams, Azarenka meet in US Open final rematch By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press NEW YORK – If there’s a player out there who could possibly test No. 1-seeded Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final, it’s her opponent Sunday, No. 2 Victoria Azarenka. Williams, it’s worth noting, has lost only four of 70 matches this season, and two of those defeats came against Azarenka, including just last month at a hard-court tuneup. There’s one significant switch in circumstances: Those were at smaller tournaments. This time, there’s a major championship on the line, and Williams is at her best when the stakes are the biggest.

“Different energy, different opportunities. This is for a Grand Slam,” Williams said. “I mean, she’s trying to win yet another one; I’m trying to win one myself. It’s just different.” Williams will be playing in her third consecutive U.S. Open final, seventh overall, and the 21st major title match of her career. She is 16-4, two Grand Slam titles away from two of the greats of the game: Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, who each won 18. The only women with more are Margaret Court with 24, Steffi Graf with 22, and Helen Wills Moody with 19. “Yeah, I thought about that,” Williams said, “but I can’t think about that. It’s still

so close, but it’s still so far.” If there were any questions about what Williams considers the truest measure of success in tennis, she made clear how she feels when she was asked to pick between Roger Federer, who owns 17 major trophies, or Rafael Nadal, who has 12. “I go by numbers,” Williams responded. “I don’t think I’m the greatest, because Steffi has way more Grand Slams than me. I just go by what’s written down.” Most of the numbers, from their careers and these two weeks, favor Williams over Azarenka. They’ve played each other 15 times in all, and Williams has won 12.

Illini offense on full display in win By STEVE GREENBERG Chicago Sun-Times CHAMPAIGN – Bill Cubit was good and ticked off before Illinois’ 45-17 victory over favored Cincinnati even started. On his drive to Memorial Stadium, the first-year offensive coordinator heard a commentator on the radio say the Illini had no chance to beat Cincinnati. Why not? “He said we can’t run the ball,” Cubit said, his mouth forming a half-sneer. “Well, we just ran it pretty good – over 200 yards.” A football purist might interject here that, for much of Saturday’s game, the Illini (20) couldn’t get anything going between the tackles; their only real running offense came on end-arounds and sweeps by wide receivers. That doesn’t count the same as slobberknocking the guys in front of you, the purist might say.

But that would be missing the point entirely. Something rather amazing is happening with the Illini offense, and it was on full display against a Bearcats defense that, a week earlier, surrendered just seven points and 226 total yards to Purdue. The best way to put it, after the Illini racked up 522 yards of wow-this-is-really-happening: At no time in the game did Cincinnati (1-1) have a clue what was coming next. Anyone who watched Illinois play last season surely agrees that game-planning against that offense couldn’t have been even a bit challenging for a decent coach. This time, though, veteran defensive coordinator Art Kaufman got his rear end handed to him. Kaufman – celebrated by Bearcats fans after the Purdue game – never even had a chance. The Illini offense lined up in so many different formations, Cubit actually lost count. “I know at one point [in

the third quarter] we were up to 20,” he said. “We like to do some different things.” Cubit’s offense has as many looks and combinations as those old Rubik’s Cube toys. Are they still around? Who knows. But if we didn’t just stumble into a perfect nickname for Illinois’ offense … Ladies and gentlemen, behold the Rubik’s Cubit. Last year’s Big Ten-worst offense was embarrassingly easy to solve. More than one, and maybe most, opposing defenses will have more talent than the Illini offense this season. But watch them struggle to find the answers to what Cubit is showing them. By how many victories will Illinois improve after going 2-10 in a miserable 2012? Perhaps just a couple or a few. But quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, a four-year starter, is now coming off the best two weeks of his career, having thrown for 728 yards and more


touchdowns (six) in two games than he threw all last season. Eleven Illini receivers caught a pass on Saturday, the sort of number that keeps everyone practicing hard. Sophomore running back Josh Ferguson and sophomore slot man Martize Barr look like breakout stars. Heading into a difficult matchup against Washington on Saturday at Soldier Field, there is much to feel good about. “I can’t tell you how much fun I’m having,” Cubit said in a team meeting room less than an hour after the upset was official. Then, for reasons that are as complicated as a Rubik’s Cube, the 59-year-old Cubit began to think about his father, who died three months ago. “I know he’s really happy with how it’s going,” he said.

Michigan beats Irish in Siemian lifts Northwestern front of record crowd By ANDREW SELIGMAN The Associated Press

By LARRY LAGE The Associated Press ANN ARBOR, Mich – Devin Gardner threw four touchdown passes, including a victory-sealing connection to Drew Dileo with 4:18 left, and the dual-threat quarterback wearing No. 98 to honor Tom Harmon ran for a score to lead No. 17 Michigan to a 41-30 win over No. 14 Notre Dame on Saturday night in front of an NCAA-record crowd of 115,109. The Wolverines (2-0) had a pair of 14-point leads, but the Fighting Irish (1-1) refused to get routed. Notre Dame pulled within a TD early in the fourth quarter when defensive end Stephon Tuitt made a diving interception in the end zone. Kyle Brindza made a 40yard field goal with 9:15 left to pull Notre Dame within four points. The Irish were called for pass interference twice on the ensuing drive and Gardner later took advantage with a 4-yard TD to Dileo. Tommy Rees threw a second interception with 1:29 left. Michigan has won four straight at home against the

Fans cheer on Michigan and Notre Dame as they begin a game Saturday at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich. This is only the second night game ever played at Michigan Stadium. Irish. That winning streak will stand for a while because the two storied programs won’t play at the Big House again anytime soon. Notre Dame opted out of its contract with the Wolverines, making next year’s game in South Bend, Ind., the last guaranteed matchup in a series that dates to 1887 and cancelling three previously scheduled games. Soon after the Irish walked off the field, the “Chicken Dance” blared and fans danced in the stands. Four months ago, Michigan coach Brady Hoke told a group of Wolverines supporters that Notre Dame was “chickening out” of

the series. Gardner got the last laugh on the field. He was 21 of 33 for 294 yards. His one interception was costly, though. Trying to avoid a sack in the end zone, he flipped a pass to no one in particular that Tuitt came up with to give Notre Dame hope. Gardner also ran 13 times for 82 yards and a score. Michigan’s Jeremy Gallon had career highs with three TDs and 184 yards receiving. Fitzgerald Toussaint gave the Wolverines just enough of a running game, gaining 71 yards on 22 carries and he also turned a short pass into a 31yard catch on the final scoring drive.


Coach: High expectations for Harvard’s Pichardo this year By JOE STEVENSON CRYSTAL LAKE – As Harvard cross country coach Brett Willhoit sees it, Jorge Pichardo likely is the best distance runner the Hornets have ever had. Now, it’s a matter of Pichardo adding to his résumé in his final high school year. And in the season’s first two races, Pichardo is well on his way to doing that. The Hornets senior took sixth place in the Crystal Lake South Invitational on Saturday at Veteran Acres Park with a time of 17:34.7. Pichardo was 30th in last year’s race. McHenry’s Jesse Reiser and Woodstock’s Maura Beattie were the boys’ and girls’ individual champions, winning by wide margins as they did in last week’s McHenry County Meet. Beattie helped the Blue Streaks girls to a strong second-place team finish behind defending Class 1A state champion Decatur St. Teresa. Reiser won in 16:34.3, 16 seconds ahead of Glenbrook South’s David O’Gara. Beattie won in 19:07.6, more than a minute better than St. Teresa’s Rachel Devereux. Pichardo and some St. Teresa boys runners were the only

Class 1A competitors in the field. “It was good. It’s a challenging hill on the course,” Pichardo said. “It was a good experience running against these guys. I’ll know what it’s like when I get to regional and sectional. I hope I can get back to state.” Pichardo narrowly missed All-State honors last year finishing 28th in the IHSA Class 1A State Meet. Willhoit has higher aspirations this year for Pichardo, who has the school’s 3,200-meter record. “We’re aiming for top 10,” Willhoit said. “He’s a great hard worker, he does everything I ask him and more. When you look at the talent around here, for him to pull [sixth place] off, on a challenging course, shows what kind of fighter he is.” Reiser had not run Veteran Acres, one of the state’s toughest courses, since his freshman season. “Sometimes I like it,” he said. “Sometimes it kills me and I just try to get done as fast as I can.” McHenry’s Michael Hahndorf was 12th and Tyler Lay was 18th as the Warriors finished fourth as a team (154 points) behind Fremd (80), Grant (92) and Glenbrook South (111). CaryGrove (162) was fifth.

Beattie looked very strong again. She, freshman Katy Jacobs and sophomore Grace Beattie (Maura’s sister) finished in the top 14 to get the Streaks 83 points. St. Teresa won with 62. “It was a pretty good race,” Maura Beattie said. “I worked the hills. I like this course, it’s challenging. I haven’t run here since I was a freshman and I heard it got narrow at 150 meters, so I wanted to get out in front. I just kept thinking about the next upcoming hill.” McHenry’s Katy Purich was eighth and Huntley’s Kelly Meehleib was 12th. Jacobs was running her first varsity invitational after winning the McHenry County Meet freshman-sophomore race last week. “It was exciting and surprising,” Jacobs said. “We were planning to do a pack run and push it as hard as we could. I was trying to push the downhill spots. I like this course.” Blue Streaks coach Matt McCulley liked what he saw from Jacobs and his team. “She ran great in the second half,” he said. “In the first half, you may have seen a little of the freshman timidness, but her confidence hit and she just flew in the second half.”

EVANSTON – Trevor Siemian threw for 259 yards and a career-high three touchdowns, Kain Colter passed for a touchdown and ran for one, and No. 19 Northwestern pounded Syracuse 48-27 on Saturday. Tony Jones added a personal-best 185 yards receiving and a 47-yard TD, and the Wildcats (2-0) racked up 581 yards in all. They also intercepted Syracuse’s Drew Allen four times on the way to an easy victory. How easy? They scored the game’s first 20 points and led 34-7 at the half after collecting 387 yards, with their quarterbacks picking apart Syracuse (0-2). They each completed 11 of 12 passes in the first half, and Colter seemed to be fine after suffering a concussion early in last week’s win at California. He was 15 of 18 for 116 yards and ran for 87 yards. Siemian, who carried the load at quarterback last week, was 15 of 19, and Northwestern looked every bit like a team bent on showing it can beat the best of the Big Ten.

The Wildcats have high expectations coming off a 10-win season and their first bowl victory in more than six decades. And with games against Western Michigan and Maine, they have a good chance to go to 4-0 before meeting Ohio State in the conference opener. Syracuse, coming off a tight loss to Penn State, never had a chance in this one. The Orange remained winless under new coach Scott Shafer and received another shaky outing from Allen. The Oklahoma transfer was 27 of 41 with 279 yards, and the Orange will now try to pick themselves up against Wagner and Tulane before beginning Atlantic Coast Conference play against Clemson. Siemian had 181 yards and threw for two touchdowns in the first half. Colter was about as good, passing for 96 and a TD while running for 67 and a score. He led the Wildcats on a four-play, 75-yard scoring drive to start the game, finishing it with an 8-yard pass to Treyvon Green. Jeff Budzien made it 10-0 with a 32-yard field goal with just over three minutes left in the quarter, and Northwestern struck again just over

two minutes into the second, with Siemian hitting a wide open Dan Vitale on the right side for a 20-yard TD. That made it 17-0, and the Wildcats continued to pile it on. Traveon Henry intercepted Allen near midfield on Syracuse’s next drive while falling into the Northwestern sideline, and Siemian followed with a 43-yard pass to Tony Jones over the middle to set up another field goal. Syracuse finally scored when Jerome Smith plowed in from the 3 with 6:29 left to make it 20-7, but Northwestern answered with a 75-yard TD drive. Colter scrambled 33 yards on a third down to keep it going and finished the possession with a 16-yard run, sticking the ball into the end zone as he got hit at the goal line by Brandon Reddish to bump the lead to 27-7 with 2:38 remaining. Chi Chi Ariguzo then intercepted Allen with about a minute left, leading to a 5-yard strike from Siemian to Christian Jones in the right corner of the end zone with two seconds left for a 27-point halftime lead.

Tokyo wins bid to host Games By STEPHEN WILSON The Associated Press BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – The International Olympic Committee went for a familiar, trusted host, selecting Tokyo for the 2020 Games and signaling that playing it safe was preferable to more risky picks like Sochi and Rio. With Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe reassuring IOC members on the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Tokyo de-

feated Istanbul, 60-36, on Saturday in the final round of secret voting. Madrid was eliminated earlier after an initial tie with Istanbul. Tokyo, which hosted the 1964 Olympics, billed itself as the “safe pair of hands” at a time of global political and economic turmoil. With Madrid’s bid dogged by questions over Spain’s economic crisis and Istanbul handicapped by political unrest and the civil war in neigh-

boring Syria, Tokyo offered the fewest risks. “The certainty was a crucial factor – the certainty that they could deliver,” IOC vice president Craig Reedie of Britain said. The choice of Tokyo bucked the IOC’s recent trend of taking chances on host cities – Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Games, Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics and Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the 2018 Winter Games.

Path to 1st place isn’t such a reach



Evaluating Bears’ quarterback not that easy

Let’s print this while we can. The Bears are tied for first place in the NFC North. It’s anybody’s guess as to whether this statement will be true by Sunday afternoon. By then, the Bears will have hosted the Cincinnati Bengals at Soldier Field, where Marc Trestman will have made his NFL head coaching debut at age 57. Maybe the Bears will be in first place come Monday. Maybe they will be in first place come New Year’s Day. Anything is possible in the moments leading up to kickoff. AP photo

Bengals at Bears NOON SUNDAY, CBS, AM-780, FM-105.9 Shaw Media sports writer Kevin Fishbain breaks down this week’s Bears game: BEARS


H. Rick Bamman –


Bears’ rushing offense vs. Bengals’ rushing defense The Bengals allowed 107.2 rushing yards A game last year, which was 12th-best in the league, helped in part by Vontaze Burfict’s impressive rookie year. However, Matt Forte has a great ability to slip tackles in the open field, and with the Bengals’ D-line looking to get after Jay Cutler, that should open some holes for the Bears’ running game. Edge: Bears

Jay Cutler looks for an open receiver against San Diego in a preseason game at Soldier Field. Cutler is with his fourth offensive coordinator in five seasons.


ay Cutler turned his head, smirked and then answered the question in the most Jay Cutler way possible. “You guys do a good job of that. I’ll leave it up to you guys.” Judging and evaluating Cutler has not been easy during his career. Fans have no problem pointing to his backbreaking interceptions and playoff record (1-1 in six seasons as a full-time starter). But it’s a lot more than that. Cutler is with his fourth offensive coordinator in five seasons with the Bears and will have four new starting offensive linemen. He also is in his first year with Marc Trestman’s offense. With all those intangibles in mind, I asked Jay how difficult it can be to evaluate his play, especially when he has admitted the learning curve to the new offense will take a while. He offered his quip, knowing how much he has been scrutinized during his time in Chicago, then added, “The coaches are on me. I know my assignments and I just have to keep working at those.” This is the most important season of Cutler’s career. He is playing for a new contract and has high expectations in Trestman’s system. It’s also significant for the Bears, who need to decide at the end of the year if Cutler is worth one of those $100 million con-

BEARS INSIDER Kevin Fishbain tracts that Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan and Tony Romo got last offseason. In addition to determining how much of Cutler’s success is owed to the new parts added around him, the Bears will need to factor in that this is yet another new offense for Cutler to learn. “To me, it’s unfair to look at a guy that’s changed systems every year and go, ‘Yup, he’s that kind of quarterback.’ Well, how do you know?” said backup quarterback Josh McCown. “What if he was in it for two years. What if he got better from Year One to Year Two in the same system? “Instead, you change the system and you’re back at square one.” McCown would know. The 34-year-old backup is on the fifth team of his career and 10th offensive coordinator in 11 NFL seasons. General Manager Phil Emery and Trestman don’t have time to give Cutler the benefit of the doubt being in a new system, which won’t make the evaluation process any easier. “It’s difficult with all those players,” Em-

ery said about all the intangibles that impact grading Cutler. “All those offensive linemen, those receivers, they’ve all undergone a lot of change. I think everybody has their own rate of development with change. I have not been disappointed in Jay’s.” “I think we’re going to find out where he is,” Trestman said Thursday. “Every year is a new year. Even if you’re in the same system, it’s still a new year, there are still new people involved, new coaches involved, and now it’s all over. “He’s certainly embraced everything we’ve asked of him. I’ve been consistent and very truthful in that. Now we’ll be up on Sunday and we’ll have a starting point for where we are, and where he is in the offense. I feel good about where he is right now.” The Cutler defenders will point to this being another new system to learn. The Cutler opponents will call it another excuse and look at this year as his last chance. Cutler knows this city will have its own parameters with which to judge him, but his organization has done what it can to help. Now, it’s on Cutler to make it an easy evaluation, that he truly is the Bears’ franchise quarterback. • Kevin Fishbain cover the Bears for

Upset special: 11-8 against spread, 9-10 straight up. – Barry Wilner

Bears’ passing offense vs. Bengals’ passing defense The Bengals’ D-line has three fantastic pass rushers and depth in the secondary, which helped give up the seventh-fewest passing yards a game last season. The Bears should find some success over the middle of the field against the safeties, but an experienced Bengals “D” should have the upper hand against a Bears passing game trying to get its footing. This is a far cry from the Raiders’ defense. Edge: Bengals

3 3

Possibly. The Bears will have their hands full against the Bengals, who made the playoffs last season and have been mentioned by more than a couple of NFL observers as a darkhorse contender to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. If the Bears knock off the Bengals, they will have at least a share of the division lead. The injury-riddled Green Bay Packers will visit the San Francisco 49ers, which might be the best team in the NFL. Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions will host the Minnesota Vikings in an important divisional matchup.

Will it be true after Week 8?


Bengals’ rushing offense vs. Bears’ rushing defense This will be a struggle for Cincinnati’s rushing attack against a Bears defense that allowed the eighth-fewest rushing yards a game last year. Cincy has a new weapon in rookie Giovani Bernard, but his skills of getting to the edge may be countered by the speed and instincts of Lance Briggs and James Anderson. The Bengals were 18th in rushing last season. Edge: Bears

Possibly. The Bears will be ready for a breather by the time they reach their Week 8 bye. Their first seven games include four home games against the Bengals, Vikings, New Orleans Saints and New York Giants as well as three road games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Lions and

H. Rick Bamman –

Bears coach Marc Trestman watches pregame warmups before a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Aug. 29 at Soldier Field.. Washington Redskins. Instead of paying homage to Lovie Smith’s quarter system, let’s break down the Bears’ early season schedule by home and away games. If the Bears can go 3-1 at home and 2-1 on the road, they’ll be sitting pretty at 5-2 when they reach the bye. However, if they have a winning record at 4-3, no one will be too upset.

Will it be true after Week 12? Possibly. If the Bears want to be in first place heading into December, they almost certainly will have to march to Lambeau Field and steal a game from the Packers. That’s much easier said than done for a Bears team that has not won at Lambeau since 2007. Could this be the year Jay Cutler delivers a road win against the Bears’ top rival?

Besides making the Green Bay trip, the Bears will host a pair of games against the Lions and Baltimore Ravens and hop a short flight south to play the St. Louis Rams. Remember how the Bears haven’t won at Lambeau in the past five years? Well, the Lions have had the exact same five-year losing streak when it comes to Soldier Field. If the Bears can defend their home turf and knock off the Rams, they could be 7-4.

Will it be true after Week 17? Possibly. For the record, I picked the Packers to win the division and I guessed that the Bears would finish on the fringe of a playoff berth at 9-7. For the record, I am wrong about 99.9 percent of the time, and other 0.1 percent is blind luck. But why can’t the Bears win the division? The Packers have

a killer schedule and already have been beset by injuries, including a season-ending knee injury to Marian Central alum Bryan Bulaga. The Bears wrap up their season with a home game against the overrated Dallas Cowboys and a pair of road trips to Cleveland and Philadelphia, both of which could be out of playoff contention by late December. Oh, and then there’s the Bears’ regular-season finale Dec. 29. Against the Packers. At Soldier Field. The division title could be on the line. But first things first. Bring on the Bengals. • Northwest Herald Media sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at and on Twitter @tcmusick.

Who protects the ball, QB the best will win • ARKUSH Continued from page C1

Bengals’ passing offense vs. Bears’ passing defense On paper, it should be all Bears against a Bengals passing game that was 17th in the league against one of the league’s better pass defenses. Keep in mind, though, the Bengals have two new weapons (Bernard and tight end Tyler Eifert) and have one of the top receivers in the game in A.J. Green. Still, Charles Tillman and the Bears’ D-line give the Bears the advantage, especially if Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth is out. Edge: Bears Sunday’s winner Despite the matchup advantages the Bears have, especially on defense, the overall edge goes to a veteran Bengals team. While the Bears will be unveiling a brand-new offense and O-line, the Bengals return one of the league’s best overall units with their D-line, and that will be the difference. Expect a low-scoring game, with Andy Dalton making just enough plays with his new toys (Bernard and Eifert) to get the win. Bengals 20, Bears 17

Will it be true after Week 1?

We’ll be on top of every minute of the upcoming season on your new 24/7 home for Bears football, led by one of the most trusted names in both Bears and pro football coverage.

The Bengals offense is led by quarterback Andy Dalton and All-Pro receiver A.J. Green. Dalton has been extremely productive in the regular season and threw for 3,669 yards last year, completing 62.3 percent of his passes with 27 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Dalton also scored four rushing touchdowns. Like Brandon Marshall, Green is an elite receiver who should be complemented this year by the continued development of Mohamed Sanu at the other receiver spot and the addition of rookies Tyler Eifert at tight end and Giovani Bernard to back up Benjarvus Green Ellis at running back. Cincinnati could cause real matchup problems for the Bears in passing situations when they go two wideouts, two tight ends and one running back with Green, Sanu, Jermaine Gresham, Eifert and Bernard all on the field at the same time. The Bengals did have trouble protecting Dalton last year and Corey Wootton and Shea McClellin will have to complement Julius Peppers and Henry Melton, pushing the pocket to keep the Bengals multiple weapons in check. Expect Charles Tillman to shadow Green all over the field in the game’s best matchup and keep an eye on 5-foot-8 Tim Jennings, who will find no good matchups with the 6-2 Sanu, 6-2 Marvin Jones, 6-5 Gresham and 6-6 Eifert on the field. On defense, Michael Johnson, Geno Atkins, Domata Peko and Carlos Dunlap make up one of the NFL’s top defensive lines and

1. Perhaps the best matchup on the field Sunday when the Bears and Bengals get together will be on special teams and in particular in the return games, where Devin Hester is the best ever for the Bears and Adam “Pac Man” Jones has been one of the league’s best punt returners in recent seasons. Jones averaged 11.6 yards a punt return in 2012, including an 81-yard touchdown and he has five career punt return scores. Hester, of course, holds the NFL’s all-time record with 17 returns for touchdowns, 12 punts and five kickoffs, although he is coming off an off year in which he averaged just 8.3 yards a punt return. 2. In Marc Trestman’s first game running the offense, he’ll take on of the league’s most successful defensive coordinators in recent seasons in Mike Zimmer. Zimmer often is described as the league’s best coordinator to never receive a head coaching offer. 3. As big a hurry as everyone’s in to see Giovani Bernard for Cincinnati, Benjarvis Green-Ellis is coming off his best season as a pro with 1,094 yards on 278 carries, a 3.9 yard a carry average, with six touchdowns and 22 receptions for 104 yards, a 4.7 average.

– Hub Arkush, Atkins is the best three technique in the league. The game’s second best matchup will feature Atkins on the outside shoulder of Kyle Long or insider shoulder of Jordan Mills. Terence Newman is an 11-year veteran at cornerback whose best years probably are behind him and although Leon Hall can be a shutdown corner at times, with Newman at 5-10 and Hall at 5-11, Marshall presents a significant mismatch against either one. Vontaze Burfict, Rey Maualuga and former Steeler James Harrison are tough against the run and Harrison can be a fierce

blitzer, but all three struggle in coverage. Safeties Reggie Nelson and Taylor Mays are tackling machines, but they both also can struggle in coverage. Look for Marc Trestman to run numerous slants and quick curls on one- and three-step drops to the middle of the field. It seems certain the winner of this one will be the club that protects its quarterback and the football the best.

Giants’ rhythm was off on Huntley drives in a win offense because of injuries By JEFF ARNOLD

ELGIN – A week ago, the inability to finish drives left the Huntley football team frustrated – even in victory. If the season was going to amount to anything, the Red Raiders realized, they couldn’t afford not to turn offensive productivity into points. That wasn’t an issue on Saturday when Jake Scalise and Mitch Kawell each ran for two touchdowns and quarterback Blake Jacobs threw for two more in a 48-16 rout of Elgin at Memorial Stadium. The offensive awakening couldn’t have come at a better time for Huntley (2-0), which opens Fox Valley Conference play Friday at home against defending Valley Division champion Cary-Grove. But despite all of Saturday’s big-play production, Red Raiders coach John Hart made one thing perfectly clear: There’s still plenty of room for improvement. “We’re going to have to play better than this to beat a team like Cary-Grove – there’s just no doubt about it,” Hart said. “You’ve got to be able to learn to be able to play four quarters and then be able to be finish

drives. We had big plays finish drives – we don’t know if we really finished drives.” Huntley broke the game open in the second quarter with 28 unanswered points. Scalise delivered the first big play with a 78-yard touchdown run that started to create distance between the Red Raiders and Elgin. Kawell, who gave Huntley the lead for good with a twoyard run in the first quarter, rumbled 22 yards in the second before fullback Jacob Witt broke free from 15 yards out to push the lead to 34-13. After Mike Andrews’ interception gave the Red Raiders possession again late in the half, Jacobs – who threw the first of his two touchdowns on Huntley’s first possession, connected with Brandon Altergott just before the end of the half to cap the productive quarter. Scalise, who led Huntley’s ground attack with 133 yards, punched in his second touchdown run early in the third quarter before Hart turned to his reserves the rest of the way. The performance, Scalise said, was a vast improvement from a week before. “Offensively, we really need to fix some cracks we had last

week,” Scalise said. “We definitely left a lot of points on the field (against Bartlett) and we made some mistakes that we needed to clean up. “We fixed those mistakes and made sure we didn’t make them again this week.” Despite scoring on its first two possessions, Huntley had to battle early after Elgin’s Jaylen Clemons gave the Maroons an 8-6 lead with a 95-yard kickoff return. From there, the Red Raiders settled in, pouring on the offense while the defense kept Elgin scoreless for much of the day. The Maroons connected on a late Ryan Sitter touchdown pass to Dontrell Gaddy with 36 seconds remaining after the game clock didn’t stop running for much of the second half. Now, with C-G looming, the Red Raiders feel like they’ve got things running smoothly although Jacobs admits he and his teammates can’t be satisfied. But Saturday’s offensive showcase certainly didn’t hurt. “It gives us a lot of confidence but we know [C-G] will be a really hard game, but I think we can beat them,” Jacobs said. “We’re not as disciplined as we need to be, but other than that, we’re doing pretty good.”

• GIANTS Continued from page C1 little room for Hoffmann’s receivers to make a play on the other two balls. Because of a lack of a passing game, the Wildcats (1-1, 1-1 NAC) stuck to their run game behind grinding running back Felix Loja who carried the ball 18 times for 146 yards, including a 52-yard touchdown run. Although the junior totaled a lot of yards on the ground, the Giants’ defense allowed most of those yards in the middle of the field and clamped down in the red zone and in fourth-down situations. The Giants (2-0, 2-0 NAC) stopped Luther North on its first eight possessions, which spanned three quarters by means of turnoveron-downs (5), punt (2), an interception and a fumble recovery. “Our defense really stepped up today,” coach John Lalor said. “Our guys were jumping routes and held their backs to minimal gains, except for a few times when they were able to break contain.” On offense, the Giants had trouble finding a rhythm because of injuries and a stout Luther North front-four. Starting tailback Nate Peterson got hit hard in the first quarter on a sweep and his play was limited the rest of the game. Starting fullback Nick Beck shifted into the tailback spot. “As a fullback, I’m used to being involved more in the passing game,” Beck said, “but with Nate a little banged up, I was involved more in the run game and it took a bit to find a rhythm.” Beck got it going, however, and scored the first points of the game on a 12-

Alden-Hebron defeated Luther North, 21-12. yard run near the end of the first half. He finished with 49 yards on 22 touches. Sophomore quarterback Colten Cashmore, a firstyear starter, passed for 98 yards and two touchdowns to complement the running game, which kept the Wildcats’ defense off-balance just enough to open the field for several big plays, including a 67-yard strike to receiver Cody Nelson to answer a Luther North scoring drive. “The key for him is to take a breath and slow things down in his head,” Lalor said of Cashmore. “He can be very effective when he takes things one step at a time.” Luther North found the end zone for the first time

on its first possession of the fourth quarter and decided to go for the 2-point conversion, which would have given them an 8-7 lead, but the Giants stuffed Loja on a dive play at the goal line. The same situation happened again on the Wildcats’ next possession after Loja’s 52-yard score, and the Giants stopped the 2-point try again to preserve a 13-12 lead. “In those goal-line situations where [the Wildcats] are going for two, the defense has to step up,” Glenn said. “Each time in the huddle we would look at each other and ask, ‘How much heart do you have?’ And it turns out that we have a lot.”

NEW YORK – Mike Napoli hit two home runs, Jonny Gomes and prized rookie Xander Bogaerts also connected, and the Boston Red Sox kept up their dizzying scoring spree at Yankee Stadium, bashing New York, 13-9, on Saturday for their fifth straight win. The AL East leaders became the first visiting team in more than a century to score at least nine runs on three straight days against the Yankees. In fact, the last time it happened, they weren’t called the Yankees – Boston did it in 1912 to the Highlanders at Hilltop Park. Orioles 4, White Sox 3: At Baltimore, Matt Wieters hit a two-run single in the 10th inning to lift Baltimore to its third consecutive win. Pinch-hitter Henry Urrutia started the winning rally with a one-out infield single against closer Addison Reed (5-3). Pinch-runner Chris Dickerson then went all the way to third on Nick Markakis’ base hit. Royals 4, Tigers 3: At Kansas City, Mo., Salvador Perez hit a tiebreaking two-run homer off Justin Verlander in the sixth, helping Kansas City to the victory. Athletics 2, Astros 1: At Oakland, Calif., Dan Straily pitched seven scoreless innings to lead surging Oakland to another victory. Blue Jays 11, Twins 2: At Minneapolis, Adam Lind hit a pair of three-

NONPROFITS Nancy Gonsiorek

Conflict resolution training at MCC

Four pillars of nonprofit leadership Last month, I provided my five easy pieces to becoming a board member. A successful board member has taken time to understand the people and particulars of the specific organization he is to join and has considered how to successfully transition into the new role. Now it is time to govern. My No. 1 rule is that the entire board is responsible. Does this mean every board member is involved in every activity? Hopefully not. Your job will require careful consideration of your role within the organization, using a big-picture approach to governing: take a step back and provide high-level oversight of operations based on my four pillars of nonprofit leadership. Effective governance: A good board member is engaged, works well with the team, and is mindful of where his role begins and ends. Respect the customs and culture in place while ensuring adherence to organization bylaws, policy and procedure. is a great resource for guidance. Fiscal responsibility: Everything you do will rely on having money in the bank to operate programs, and it is every board member’s duty to ensure resources are used appropriately. Small organizations often lack resources to hire a financial professional. Having only a few staff or volunteers might result in a lack of expertise and inadequate segregation of duties. That means one person may deposit funds, write checks, and reconcile bank accounts with little or no supervision. This creates a situation where there is risk of material misstatements in the financial processes, including risk of theft. You can mitigate this problem by looking at monthly financial statements in a timely manner. Make sure you review the balance sheet and income statement every month. Additionally, more than one board member should take a regular, indepth look. Legal compliance: It is the board member’s responsibility to ensure timely filing of federal and state information returns, corporation registration, and payroll and sales tax returns. All reporting must be done in a timely manner to avoid costly penalties or, worse, loss of tax-exempt status. Additionally, IRS regulations require annual board review of federal form 990 before filing. This is an excellent opportunity to review finances and reflect on program accomplishments. If audited financial statements are required, the board should meet with the auditors at the close of the audit to review the statements and management letter. Remember, auditors work for the board and should report annually to the board. Responsible fundraising: More and more galas, 5K races and other events mean more organizations competing for limited contribution dollars. Creativity can find previously untapped resources, but beware. My past columns have addressed common fundraising pitfalls. Other considerations include monitoring the true cost of your fundraising, in dollars and the opportunity cost of staff and volunteer time. Lastly, always take care to respect the privacy of donors. Good luck as you embark on your board commitment. • Nancy Gonsiorek is a Certified Public Accountant providing audit, tax and consulting services to nonprofit organizations. Her firm, Nancy L.

Woodstock native pours it all into bar Calvin’s PourHouse takes over Odd Fellow’s’ space By CYNTHIA WOLF WOODSTOCK – Randy Oehlerking of Woodstock perched on a stool at the polished wooden bar at Main Street PourHouse on a recent late afternoon, enjoying a draft beer with a friend. Oehlerking, 30, said he’s a fan of the PourHouse, one of Woodstock’s newest businesses, which opened this spring in the former Odd Fellow’s at the Waverly space at 214 Main St. “There are great people. They have great food, good drinks and a good atmosphere,” Oehlerking said. “I think it’s one of the best places in town to come and enjoy yourself.” That’s music to the ears of PourHouse owner Bryson Calvin, a Woodstock native who opened the establishment May 2 after a whirlwind four weeks of refinishing the wooden floors and the bar, repainting walls, adding seating, and redoing the bathrooms. Family, friends and staff members stepped up to make it all happen smoothly and quickly, he said. The PourHouse features about 50 beers, from international fare to microbrews. “Craft brews are a booming business right now,” Calvin said.

Mulally says no plans to leave Ford early BERLIN – The chief executive of Ford Motor Co. said he has no plans to leave the company early after reports that he might be tipped to take a leading role at software maker Microsoft Corp. Ford said last year that Alan Mulally would stay with the company through at least 2014. Mulally, 68, batted aside talk of an early exit, telling reporters in Berlin that “I absolutely personally love serving Ford and we have no changes planned going forward.”

DETROIT – The United Auto Workers union confirmed Friday that it’s in talks with Volkswagen about representing workers a factory in Chattanooga, Tenn. The union said its representatives met with VW officials last week in Wolfsburg, Germany, to discuss a German-style “works council” at the plant as well as full UAW representation. Only one U.S. plant owned by foreign automakers has UAW representation, a Mitsubishi factory in Normal.

Corporations do more to put art on public display By ULA ILNYTZKY The Associated Press NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Corporate art buying in North American has fallen off since the boom days of the 1970s and 1980s, but even as the economy improves, some companies are buying less art but doing more to put their works out for the public to enjoy. There are about 1,500 corporations in the world with art collections, with some of the largest held by banks and financial institutions, according to the International Directory of Corporate Art Collections. Shirley Reiff Howarth, the editor of the directory, said that since 2000, the percentage of collections listed as “ongoing,” or still being added to, has dropped from 55 percent to about 40 percent. Many corporations are limiting new purchases for new buildings, expansions or renovations. “While the volume of buying has been reduced, educational programs have increased and the collections are used for more than simply enhancing the walls of the company and its image,” Howarth said. Bank of America, with more than 30,000 artworks created from several mergers, has one of

A three-dimensional piece made from medical plaster bandages by artist George Segal hangs in the executive dining room of the world headquarters of Johnson & Johnson in New Brunswick, N.J. the largest collections in North America. Instead of buying new art, it focuses on the arts programs it has created, including Art In Our Communities, which has lent fully curated exhibitions to 60 museums worldwide since 2008. “This is something that resonates with the

communities where we [lend] the exhibitions,” said Allen Blevins, who oversees the bank’s collection and art programs. The Charlotte, N.C.-based company currently has 16 traveling exhibitions, representing 2,500 works. Among them is a show at the Museo del Novecento in Milan of Andy Warhol’s most important silkscreen portfolios. “The level of appreciation has become more about education,” Howarth said. At Johnson & Johnson’s sprawling I.M. Peidesigned headquarters in New Brunswick, there are two galleries that feature continuous exhibitions, one for special and touring shows and the other for New Jersey artists. They are open to the public by appointment. Like other corporations, the medical and pharmaceutical giant also lends its artworks. A drawing by Alice Aycock was featured in a retrospective of the artist at a Long Island museum and a George Segal sculpture was included in a major traveling exhibition. It also has presented other programs based on employee or community interest, including a show on New Jersey actor, opera star and civil rights activist Paul Robeson that traveled to several U.S. cities.

Make kids help pay for their college education Dear Dave, My wife and I make together about $100,000 a year, almost $50,000 in an IRA and no debt except for our home. The problem is I’ve had several health issues lately, and we’ve diverted a lot of money we’d put into saving and investing toward medical bills. We also have two kids in high school who want to go to college. Do you think we should cash out the IRA to help send our boys to school? – Jeff

Dear Jeff, You guys make $100,000, and expenses at a good in-state school would be roughly $17,000 a year. If I were you, I’d trim the household budget and make the kids get to work. Look around and see what you can sell, too. There’s no reason

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey you all can’t pull together and cash flow an education for these guys. Providing an education for your kids is a noble pursuit, but you’re low on money right now because of health problems and medical bills. You didn’t do anything wrong to create this scenario. It was just a case of life happening. So, you shouldn’t feel ashamed to sit down with your kids and say, “OK, serious talk time. You guys know what’s happened recently, so if you want to go to college, you need find a good, affordable institution and start applying for every available scholar-

No one needs a car that’s worth nearly all of their yearly income. That’s just ridiculous. If you listen to me on the radio, I’m sure you’ve already heard me say what I’m about to say now – sell the car. That will get rid of almost half her debt, then find her a little $2,000 beater to drive until she can save up for a better car. Remember this simple rule: Never buy a car that costs more than half of your annual income. Also, never go into debt to buy a car. Automobiles go down in value like a rock, and you never want that much money wrapped up in something that’s depreciating. We also have an income issue here. Your mom has to do something in the short term to get her income up and pay off debt. A part-time job nights and weekends

ship. You also need to plan on working after school and on weekends – now and when you’re off at college – and saving money like crazy. Your mom and I will help out some, but we all have to pull together to make this happen.” There’s a better way to do this than borrowing money and going into debt. There will be times when it’s not easy, but walking around with student loans hanging over your head is no fun, either. – Dave

Dear Dave, My mom has about $35,000 worth of debt from a $17,000 car and $18,000 in student loans. She makes $20,000 a year. How can she get out of this mess? – Christina

Dear Christina,

would be a really good idea. Then, she needs to address her long-term situation with an eye toward a decent job. Whether it’s more formal education or technical training in a particular field, she needs to find a career that will significantly increase her income. – Dave

“We do seasonal beers. I try to keep an [India Pale Ale] on there, a domestic, a wheat or a porter.” Mason jar cocktails add to the offerings unique to the PourHouse, which also has a menu chockfull of burgers, sandwiches, pasta, flatbreads and more – with no meal selection exceeding $15. Calvin, 29, has a bachelor of science in psychology with a concentration in outdoor recreation from Indiana University at Bloomington. In addition to his new business venture, he’s an area bartending veteran of eight years and works full time as a ranger for the McHenry County Conservation District. Calvin said he has poured his savings into opening the PourHouse, with a modicum of assistance from family. Family members also played a key role in developing one of PourHouse’s signature offerings – the Calvin Club. It’s a mason jar cocktail with “a recipe that started in the Boundary Waters with my grandpa and my dad and my aunt.”

The sweet concoction melding Jim Beam, cherry and peach liqueurs and lemonade was born during a canoeing trip in northern Minnesota, Calvin said. “It’s really tasty,” he said. Mason jar cocktails go for $7, while beer specials start at about $2. Among the 14 staff members Calvin is employing at PourHouse is his girlfriend, Tymalyn Dooner, who is sales and events manager. Dooner is credited with coming up with the list of possible business names from which the PourHouse emerged as the favorite. “We wanted to do something interconnecting the beer selection with the menu,” she said of the place’s double entendre title. “We have over 50 different types of beer … and we have menu items such as the bargain burger, the nickel and dime, and the cheapskate.” Calvin said that in addition to a great drink selection and affordable menu choices, the PourHouse features frequent live entertainment. “We want to give people a place to enjoy,” he said. “We’re starting fairly small, but hopefully this becomes a big thing.”

8IN BRIEF Judge orders Apple to modify electronic book contracts NEW YORK (AP) – Looking to force Apple to obey antitrust laws, a judge ordered the technology giant to modify contracts with publishers to prevent electronic book price fixing and said she will appoint an external compliance monitor to review the company’s antitrust policies and training. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote’s 17-page order came nearly two months after she

concluded that Apple Inc. used the popularity of its iTunes store to conspire with publishers to raise e-book prices in 2010. Cote gave the Department of Justice less than it requested but still left it pleased. “The court’s ruling reinforces the victory the department has won for consumers,” Assistant Attorney General Bill Baer said in a statement. “Consumers will continue to benefit from lower e-books prices as a result of the department’s enforcement

action to restore competition in this important industry.” Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr said the Cupertino, Calif., company will appeal the order. “Apple did not conspire to fix e-book pricing,” he said. “The iBookstore gave customers more choice and injected much needed innovation and competition into the market. Apple will pursue an appeal of the injunction.”

TODAY - You may need to alter some of the variables in your life in order to ease stress and avoid loss in the year ahead. The right move could bring high returns, but temptation could cost you dearly. Learn from your past mistakes and use your head at all times. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Get involved in something that challenges you. Someone you encounter will give you an interesting point of view concerning a project you are considering. Explore new friendships. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your charm will entice someone you want to get to know

better. Make plans that will allow you to show off your smarts and skills, but refrain from overspending or overindulging. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Draw from your varied and colorful experience and find a way to use your fund of knowledge to explore new avenues. An unusual idea will interest you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You should adapt to shifting trends and make the most of whatever situation you face. You will attract someone as spirited as you, who will want to travel down the same path. Make your journey count.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You’ll find it easier to deal with life’s many demands if you take better care of yourself. Working hard can be good, but not at the expense of your health. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Look for new ways to use your skills. A change in the way you earn your living could prove to be a turning point. Aim to do your best. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Take a look at interesting investments and pursue the one that seems the best. Reopen doors that may have been closed in the past, and you will prosper.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A partnership will be on shaky ground if you overreact. Question your reasoning before you take action. You should focus on personal improvement before you complain about others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Do something you enjoy or spend time with a person likely to make you laugh. Avoid stressful situations that can limit you physically or financially. Focus on success, not revenge. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Do the legwork and find out all you can before pursuing someone or something that may not be as

it appears. False information or perceptions will lead to disappointment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t make personal changes that could alter your looks without serious thought. Take the path of least resistance until you know you can achieve positive results. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Protect your reputation. Uncertainty regarding your status and personal relationships will cause confusion. Ask questions and let your intuition help you make the right choice. Choose love and equality.

Boomer follows compelling career Be careful which table you choose in a restaurant. Recently, my husband and I took our favorite table in a local establishment and then discovered it also was the favorite table of the next customer to walk through the door, David Walker of Lakewood. This led to some good-natured ribbing and, as is often the case, a good story. David was born in New Jersey in 1946 and moved a lot as a child because money was tight and his father had to look for work. He lived the majority of his life in southern California. He was the youngest with two much older sisters. David worked throughout high school, and just as he reached college age, the Vietnam War was gathering steam. He enlisted in the Air Force, where he became an air traffic controller. This job, as stressful as it was, brought out David’s strengths. He loved it, and after his service he went on to college and got his degree in accounting through the GI Bill. I thought of how the movie “Forrest Gump” captured the arc of life by taking us back to the seminal events of the second half of the 20th century. The arc of David’s life is similarly evocative of the times. He has been riding the wave of innovation for more than 40 years. From vacuum tube to transistor to microchip; from oil glut to oil shortage to nuclear power; from slide-rules to calculators to computers; from national to international economy; from boom to bust and back; David has been there, and he has loved it. Out of college, David’s first job was with an international construction company involved in the building of the Alaskan pipeline. With a knowledge of engineering and computer applications, he devised a way to measure what materials were needed at specific times for the pipeline building process and refinery operations. Between 1981 and 1985, David and his family lived in Saudi Arabia while the war between Iran and Iraq was raging. There was a steep cultural learning

Boomer David Walker’s journey took him from California to Saudi Arabia to Lakewood. curve for the whole family. His wife was not allowed to drive, so she and the children traveled on air-conditioned buses equipped with bathrooms. A head scarf was not expected, but conservative dress was a must. His three daughters went to a private school where there was never a concern about the use of drugs or alcohol, but in the higher grades, they had to go out of the country to a boarding school. Buyouts, mergers and takeovers eventually altered David’s career. Although he talks about it as just something that happened, it could not have been easy. From Saudi Arabia to California to Illinois; from the oil fields to the automobile industry to mortgage and finance to nuclear power, life did not move in a smooth arc for him and his family. David’s last corporate job before becoming a consultant was with the Exon Nuclear Power Plant in Rockford, coordinating their computer communication system. This was very challenging. There was no room for error, and accountability to the Nuclear Regulatory System kept everyone on their toes. It

took three months to get all of the machines up to date, and then there were nine more to review. David is proud he completed the project without one complaint from the Nuclear Regulatory System. Hearing nothing from the NRS is the best compliment he could have. Today, David lives with his wife of 44 years, Lorraine. Their daughters have a variety of college degrees and advanced degrees. They have found their own careers in teaching, library systems and law enforcement. As I was leaving their home, Lorraine pointed to a framed print of a bald ego. The words by an unknown author beneath the picture, she said, sum David up: “Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible.”

Back-to-School Special Five-Spice-Rubbed Rack of Lamb With Cucumber Salad


Indirect heat key to grilling lamb By STEPHANIE WITT SEDGWICK The Washington Post I was always afraid to grill a rack of lamb. I thought the fat would cause flareups. But a mix of indirect and direct cooking gives me picture-perfect results. The rack is seared over medium-high heat, then finished over indirect heat. The whole process takes about 25 minutes. Chinese five-spice powder gives dimension to the lamb. It’s a simple way to introduce just a touch of Asian flavor. A quick salad of cucumber, red onion and seasoned rice vinegar adds another mild Asian note.

Five-Spice-Rubbed Rack of Lamb With Cucumber Salad 2 to 3 servings 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 2 teaspoons olive oil One 1 1/4-pound rack of lamb 8 ounces unwaxed baby or English cucumbers (unpeeled), cut into 1-inch-long matchsticks 3 ounces red onion, thinly sliced, then cut into 1-inch-long pieces 1 1/2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar Whisk together the five-spice powder, salt and oil in a small bowl, then rub the mixture into the lamb. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours and up to overnight. When ready to cook, discard the plastic wrap

around the lamb rack and any remaining marinade; bring to room temperature. Combine the cucumber, red onion and vinegar in a medium bowl. Toss well, stirring every 5 minutes or so while the lamb is on the grill. Prepare the grill for direct and indirect heat. If using charcoal, light the charcoal in a chimney starter and let the briquettes burn until flames subside and a light layer of ash covers the briquettes (about 20 to 25 minutes). Dump the lighted coals into 2 mounds (or, preferably, into 2 half-moon-shaped briquette baskets) on opposite sides of the grill. Place a drip pan between the piles of coals and fill it halfway with water. (If using gas, with a two-burner grill, set one burner to medium-low and leave the other unlit; with three or more burners, set the outside or front and rear burners to medium or medium-high and leave the center burners unlit.) The grill temperature should be 400 to 425 degrees F. Place the lamb rack over direct heat. Cook uncovered, turning the rack so the meat is seared on all sides, then move the rack to the indirect-heat part of the grill. Close the lid and cook for 10 minutes; the rack is done when the internal temperature of the meat, measured away from the bone, registers 140 degrees F. (medium-rare). Rest the meat for 10 minutes before cutting the rack into individual or double chops. Serve with the cucumber salad.

‘Project Drive-in’ voting ends Monday By KURT BEGALKA Movie buffs have until 11 p.m. Monday to back the McHenry Outdoor Theater’s efforts to go digital. Scott Dehn, president of Golden Age Cinemas and theater owner since January 2012, is trying to raise an estimated $130,000 to buy a digital projector and related equipment for the 62-year-old landmark at 1510 Chapel Hill Road in McHenry. That is where Honda’s “Project Drive-in” comes in. The company will donate five digital projectors to the drive-in theaters that receive the most votes. To vote, visit http://projectdrivein. com/#vote_111 or by text “Vote111” to 444999. “Eighty-five thousand dollars in equipment will save the lives of five theaters,” said Dehn, 36, of McHenry. He has raised about $5,000 so far thanks to publicity via Facebook and on the company website, Dehn also credited property owner Rhyan Holdings LLC of Aurora for its support toward what he hopes is a long-term lease. In an effort to boost awareness, Highland Park filmmaker Gerry Orr

chronicled the McHenry Outdoor’s “Drive to Stay Alive.” You can watch it at “We have to save it,” Orr said. “It brings people together. It’s like a block party. When you put your folding chairs next to an SUV, van or whatever, you are talking to the people. The kids are playing out there on the lawn. It is just a festive atmosphere. “In this day and age where kids and families are overscheduled, family time is when you go out to eat and no one is talking to each other. They are texting and emailing. This [movie experience] is family time. If it were in black and white, it could have been from the “The Little Rascals.” Orr said making the film and talking to patrons was “therapeutic” and offered a chance to recapture a little of his youth growing up in Skokie. “In the super-duper multiplex theaters, you have everything in 3-D plus all the condiments you want. But there is just something missing,” he said. “I feel like that is almost sacred ground when you drive into the McHenry Outdoor Theater. It’s like time travel. It’s like driving into the time machine.” It still has the original speaker poles, the original tower with its 50-foot-wide screen that rises seven

According to the United Drive-in Theatre Owners Association, there are just 357 outdoor theaters left in the country, compared with more than 4,000 in 1958. Dehn needs the new equipment, with it’s brighter picture and improved sound, if he wants to remain competitive. The number and types of movies available in a 35-millimeter format

already are dwindling, he said. “It’s going to be a win-win situation for everyone if he can raise the money: A renaissance of the drive-in movie, old-time experience meeting new technology,” Orr said. “I’m a storyteller. Finding stories like this, finding people like Scott ... I admire him. He’s swimming upstream on this one. Oddly enough, it’s a world that many people don’t even know exists.”

Riders raise funds for Mooseheart By JAMI KUNZER What began as Bruce Bailey’s personal crusade to raise money and awareness for the Mooseheart school has turned into a challenge for his entire Woodstock Moose Lodge. Bailey set out a couple of years ago to bike 45 miles from Woodstock to the Mooseheart Child City & School in Batavia. This year, he’ll be joined by at least 14 bikers, all earning pledges that will go toward a renovation project at the school, which helps children who’ve been orphaned. The bikers will set out Sept. 14, hoping to reach the Mooseheart Challenge’s $15,000 goal. Bikers and pledgers still are encouraged to participate. “It’s because of the kids,” said Bailey of Woodstock. “That’s why we’re here, to help out kids who are in need.” Along with the bike ride, which is 47 miles this year due to construction on the bike path in Algonquin, the Challenge included other fundraisers, such as a Taco Night in April, a Bash in July and the sale of apparel celebrating Mooseheart’s 100th anniversary. A 5K Walk will take place Sept. 22 at Emricson Park. Raising $10,000 last year through his bike ride, Bailey has been challenged to raise another $15,000. If the Woodstock Moose Lodge raises $25,000, a renovated classroom will be dedicated to it at Mooseheart. About $10 million in renovations are under way at the 60-year-old school, said Barb McPherson, grand chancellor of the Women of the Moose and a Woodstock resident, who also will be taking part in the 47-mile ride. The school holds about 230 students ranging in age from preschoolers to high school seniors. Six lodges in the country, including Woodstock, have pledged to raise enough money within

two years to have a dedicated classroom. “I think Bruce has done an amazing job not only to raise funds, but he’s also done a terrific job of bringing the membership of the lodge closer together to support a project,” McPherson said. “He’s brought awareness to the members of what it is we do as members, and he just has such a passion for the children that we provide care for.” After the bike ride, bikers will be greeted with drinks, food and a tour of the campus. Many Moose members have never been to the school, McPherson said. “They want to see what their dues and our money is going to support,” she said. In taking on the $15,000 effort, Bailey challenged McPherson to ride along with him this year. She said she’s been training since Christmas, when her husband bought her a new bike, and is hoping to tackle the 47 miles. Bailey said he’s biked more than 400 miles this year in preparation. When he first took on the ride a couple of years ago, he wasn’t a regular bike-rider. At age 57, he said the challenge has kept him in shape. Others, too. “A lot of good people like the idea and they jump on board,” he said. “Two years ago, I was totally prepared to ride down there by myself. People just came out of the woodwork.” “There are still riders out there trying to get people to pledge,” Bailey said.

“What is a two-stage Air Conditioner?” This is a unit that has either 2 compressors or 1 compressor with the ability to operate at two levels or capacity. This concept has been around for over 25 years. It represents the pinnacle of efficiency and comfort. Some of the benefits of a two-stage system are: • Efficiency - These systems have seer ratings that are over 20+ seer. Compared to older units, this could cut your energy consumption by up to 50%. • Comfort - A two-stage air conditioner will give you the most comfortable home possible. Approximately 75 - 80% of the time the system will be running at about 60% capacity. The net result is greater comfort and better de-humidification. Your comfort level increases as the humidity level is decreased. This allows you to raise the temperature setting on the thermostat by 1-2 degrees. Another added benefit is the fact that multilevel homes enjoy more even temperatures as opposed to single stage units. If you have any questions about two-stage cooling or any other HVAC concerns, please contact me at or on my cell: 815-404-4634.

6 ‘A Cautionary Tale’ tells of CL graduate’s DWI trial, conviction

Date: Thursday, September 19, 2013 Time: 11:30 - 1:30 pm Location: Crystal Lake Country Club Price: $35 Visit to purchase your ticket.

Former classmate writes book By JAMI KUNZER A new book written by a Crystal Lake Central High School graduate tells the story of how his best friend, and former classmate, ended up with a 30-year prison sentence. Written by Art Collins, a 1971 Crystal Lake Central graduate who lives in Elgin, “A Cautionary Tale: The DWI Trial of Stephen Mole” developed when Collins reconnected with Mole. Art Collins He visited Author him once and researched Mole’s trial and sentence, and the two communicated through phone calls and email. Mole, also a 1971 Crystal Lake Central graduate, was pronounced guilty in 2008 of killing one person and seriously injuring two others while driving drunk. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison. The two friends decided it was a story that needed to be told. The book took about two years to research and write. “We both agreed it would not be a whitewash,” said Collins, who had written four business-related books. “It would be a no-holdsbarred,” he said. “[Mole] was hoping this would serve as a warning to people and a chance to showcase his faith and the idea that salvation and redemption is available to everybody, even in the worst of circumstances.” While serving time, Mole

‘A Cautionary Tale: The DWI Trial Of Stephen Mole’ The book written by Crystal Lake High School graduate Art Collins about fellow classmate Stephen Mole is available in paperback or Kindle format at is studying ministry and intends to practice ministry when he’s released. Having served five, his first possibility for parole is in 10 years. According to reports, Mole’s vehicle struck a vehicle containing Don and Marilyn Gates and their friends, Gene Cordes, his wife, Beverly Brooks, and their son, Griffin Cordes, who was 17 at the time of the March 25, 2006, accident. Marilyn Gates died, while Griffin Cordes and Beverly Brooks were seriously injured. The families declined to be involved in the book. Having lost touch with Mole through the years, Collins had heard about the incident through another friend on Facebook. “Steve Mole was the last person you’d think this would happen to,” he said. He described the book as “part cautionary tale, part drama,” as well as a story containing hope and redemption. “It was very tough on many levels,” Collins said. “I felt like I was really prying into his life in a way I’d never done with any other friends. ... He was determined he wanted this message out.”

Latest in Sam and Remi Fargo series is a good read By JEFF AYERS The Associated Press The Clive Cussler empire expands with another title in the Sam and Remi Fargo series. Co-written with Thomas Perry, “The Mayan Secrets” is also the best of the series so far. The Fargo husband-and-wife treasurehunting duo have had success in finding lost treasures. They have plenty of money and don’t have to worry about day jobs or spending a month at a time away from home. So when an earthquake hits a section of Mexico, they feel compelled to supply humanitarian aid. While giving their assistance, they stumble on an ancient Mayan artifact. This sealed pot clutched in the hands of a skeleton clearly has significance, and to make sure it’s not damaged or lost in the cleanup, Sam and Remi have it shipped to their home in San Diego with the assurance they will give it back to the Mexican government. When they open the pot, they discover a book that contains information about the Mayan culture. Word spreads of their find, and soon a woman arrives on their doorstep

demanding the book. The Fargo series has been the forgotten child of the various series that Cussler writes with several co-authors. This time, the story and characters gel into an adventure that feels like Cussler’s Photo provided Dirk Pitt adventures. Perry has written many terrific novels, and it’s understandable why Cussler would want to write with him. Their first collaboration was spotty at best, but this time they’ve found their groove, and the end result is a blast.

If families aren’t able to come get the supplies at Bachler-Connor’s Ringwood home, she brings the donations to them. Others can come “shop,” but are encouraged to take only what they need. The organization reserves the right to limit what they take, but that has never been an issue. “We’ve actually had clients who’ve returned and donated stuff back,” Bachler-Connor said. “They let us know if they have something somebody else is looking for.” Through fundraising efforts, those involved have worked to provide not only supplies, but gift cards, as well. The group always is in need of diapers, baby wipes, formula, bottles and other baby necessities, and welcomes cash donations. “We’re still small,” Bachler-Connor said. “We’re looking for donations and always looking for people to help.”

Mom to three and stepmom to four with husband Michael Connor, BachlerConnor said her oldest son is mentally ill and at one point ended up using the services of McHenry County’s Public Action to Deliver Shelter. PADS shelters the homeless at area churches. “He would call me and say, ‘There’s a woman you have to help. She just had a baby and doesn’t have anything,’ ” Bachler-Connor said of her son. She’d ask her son to give the phone to the woman. She’d find out what the woman needed and bring her anything she could gather. Bachler-Connor also does the laundry monthly for a PADS shelter in Wonder Lake. In the summer of 2010, she and friends gathered baby supplies when several families they knew were expecting. Unfortunately, most of the babies did not make it full term, she said. “We suddenly had this abundance of stuff,” BachlerConnor said. “It was, ‘OK, what do we do with it?’ ” While she and others often were able to find necessities online through sites that offer them free, such as The Freecycle Network, others do not have access to computers, she said. “It kind of dawned on me the people who need the stuff the most aren’t the people sitting on their computers trying to get these things for free,” she said. “Even if they could, they don’t generally have a car to go and get them.” So using her own money, Bachler-Connor created Nurturing Necessities and formed CLOCKWISE FROM ABOVE: Nurturing Necessities founder Kerri Bachler-Connor of Ringwood started the charity to help provide baby-related items to low-income families with young children.

By Karly Bulinski What are some alternative metals used for men’s rings? When people think of metals the first thing that comes to mind is usually gold, white gold or sterling silver. While these metals are still widely used in men’s jewelry, there are now many different alternative metals that are being used. Jenae Cherry Brad Brach West Long Branch, N.J., with a bachelor’s degree in history secondary education, certified high school teacher. He is a professional baseball player for the San Diego Padres. They have plans for a Nov. 30 wedding.

Tungsten Carbide is a heavy metal with a hard scratch resistant surface. It is grey to gun metal in color. It’s also hypoallergenic and will never tarnish like sterling silver. It is a very hard metal, ranking a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale (that’s right up there with sapphires and rubies.) Tungsten can be mixed with other materials, such as black or blue carbon fiber or gold, to create a unique look. Titanium is a lightweight but durable metal that ranks a 6.75 on the Mohs hardness scale, (that’s comparable to tanzanite and peridot.) Titanium is hypoallergenic and will not tarnish. It is a silver metal that has a charcoal grey tint. It has 3 times the strength of steel, but is 42% lighter which makes this metal a very good option for jewelry. Cobalt Chrome is a naturally bright white metal. It is an alloy that mainly consists of cobalt, chromium and tungsten. It is hypoallergenic and will not tarnish. Cobalt Chrome is four times harder than platinum! Because of this super strength, this metal will not scratch, shatter or crack. Vitalium is a brilliant pure white metal. This metal is twice as hard as cobalt chrome, five times harder than titanium, six times harder than platinum and nine times harder than silver. It’s hypoallergenic and will not oxidize, tarnish, scratch or discolor.

Jeanne Phillips

Mom is caregiver, referee between husband and sons Dear Abby: My husband is 99 percent bed-bound with primary progressive MS. My oldest son is bipolar (he’s off his meds and doing great), and my youngest son has Asperger’s. I know ... wow. My husband refuses to even try to understand the boys. When they have behavior problems, he tells them if he could, he would backhand them. Great parenting, huh? But at the same time, the boys and I are expected to have our lives revolve around his disability and stop everything when he needs help. His MS is always top priority. I hate watching him go through his disease, but does that give him a free pass to bully our boys? I realize the boys (especially the younger one) have issues that are difficult to deal with, and I’m not giving them a free pass, either, but I feel like I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. If I

support my sons, I’m a bad wife. If I support my husband, I’m a bad mom. And – not to sound selfish – who supports ME? I’m not really expecting any answers, but needed to vent, for lack of better terminology. I do have a support system of extended family and friends, but sometimes the lack of support inside the house makes me crazy. Any words of wisdom, Abby? –

Stretched Thin In Colorado Dear Stretched Thin: You have a right to vent. You’re carrying an enormous load on your shoulders right now. I wish you wouldn’t label yourself as a “bad” ANYTHING because you are just a mortal woman who is trying to cope. Your husband is understandably bitter and frustrated and sometimes takes it out on those closest to him – you and the boys. His MS IS top priority because

he’s incapacitated and it HAS to be. Your boys need to understand the importance of not stressing out their father. I’m glad your older son is doing well off medication, IF that’s OK with his doctor. But it’s my understanding people with a chemical imbalance need to stay on their meds to maintain their equilibrium. As to your younger son, people with Asperger’s may have problems with their social interactions, but they can be taught rules of acceptable behavior. Perhaps it’s time to work a little harder on that. As to your own needs, believe me, I sympathize. If you need to vent, it’s important for your sanity that you be able to do so. It’s wonderful that you have extended family and friends to support you, but if at all possible, find someone who can offer a respite from your caregiving responsibilities every few weeks.

Dear Abby: My sister and I have settled my mother’s estate except for one item: Mom’s cookbooks. In particular, one book Mom used regularly and in which she modified recipes. My mother was a phenomenal cook, and this book is a real bone of contention for us all. What should I do? – Lost For Words Dear Lost For Words: One person can volunteer to be the “family cooks’ librarian” and if anyone wants to prepare a modified recipe, the librarian could scan it or photocopy it and send it. Or, all of the modified recipes could be photocopied at once and distributed to family members who would like to have them. The task shouldn’t be onerous because I doubt your mother modified every recipe in the book.

Drinking problem may not conform to expectations I met a young lady recently who was interested in an opinion about whether she had a drinking problem or not. The first thing we had to do was to get the stereotypes out of the way. I asked her about her idea of what an alcoholic was, because an alcoholic’s definition is almost always several notches worse than his or her own experiences no matter how regressed she is. For example, if you are sleeping in a box on Wells Street, the real alcoholics are on Madison. She felt like an alcoholic was a daily drinker (like

her mom) who was dishonest, self-pitying and hid her problems in the bottle. She saw alcoholics as chronic rather than periodic drinkers who lost control whenever they drank. Because this was not her pattern (even though she had a substantial number of other symptoms), she reasoned, she could not be an alcoholic. The truth was, she had always worried about her drinking and knew she had to exercise extra caution because of her mother’s illness. She also knew she “definitely had a problem in college” but had tamed her habits since

graduation and marriage. She also realized the man she married had a drinking problem and that she controlled her drinking, essentially, to control his. She occasionally rewarded herself (once or twice a month) with some drinks and usually managed to stay in bounds, but once or twice a year, she reported losing control to the extent that bad things would happen – bad arguments, dangerous drives, irresponsible behavior with the kids, dishonest or other uncharacteristic behaviors for which there usually were consequences and always remorse.

In addition, she said, she always forgot the events of the evening before whenever she had more than four or five beers but could not really predict how many beers she would have on any given occasion no matter what the circumstances. Her pattern is not all that uncommon, particularly in women who tend to be more likely to be binge drinkers and more secretive about their drinking. My suggestion to her was her symptoms would certainly justify the presence of alcoholism but she should try some A.A. meetings to see for herself

whether the shoe fit. She said as she told her story in an A.A. meeting, there seemed to be a lot of smiles and nods. Apparently, one of the older members said although he wouldn’t be able to say whether she was an alcoholic or not, there certainly were similar elements. As she was leaving, she reminded the A.A. group she still didn’t know whether she was an alcoholic. Their response was, “You’ll do, honey, ’til a real one comes along.”

“Riddick” H1/2

STARRING: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff PLOT: Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past. RATED: R for strong violence, language and some sexual content/ nudity TIME: 1 hour, 59 minutes VERDICT: By now, the saga of escaped convict and galactic outlaw Richard Riddick is a well-established sci-fi benchmark. As the substantial lore surrounding Riddick aspires to achieve mythic proportions, expectations also escalate, challenging successive releases to augment the gritty anti-hero’s legendary status. Succinctly titling the third film “Riddick” would seem to telegraph a determinative evolution of the ongoing narrative, rather than the largely episodic exercise franchise director David Twohy and star-producer Vin Diesel have delivered. Duped into relinquishing the crown of Lord Marshal of the Necromongers by his nemesis Vaako (Karl Urban), an entitlement hard-won in “The Chronicles of Riddick,” the notorious murderer Riddick (Diesel) ends up stranded on another blisteringly inhospitable planet instead of enjoying a return to his home world of Furya, as Vaako led him to expect. Fending off attacks by hyenalike wild canines and battling carnivorous amphibians reminiscent of giant scorpions, Riddick makes it out of the heatblasted desert to the sanctuary of the adjacent high plains, where he finds refuge in an outpost set up by a network of galactic mercenaries. Relative safety turns out to be unrewarding, however, and with no other way to escape the inhospitable planet, Riddick activates the beacon device that alerts an extensive bounty-hunter network to his location. First to arrive from off-world are Santana (Jordi Molla) and his thuggish cohorts, who collectively possess more brawn than brains. Close behind, Boss Johns (Matt Nable) pilots a better-skilled crew that includes crack sniper Dahl (Katee Sackhoff), the only woman among the testosteronefueled hunters. Riddick’s intention

RATINGS HHHH - Excellent HHH - Recommended HH - Not recommended H - Awful is to separate one of the spaceships from its crew and flee. Santana, however, is determined to sever Riddick’s head from his body so he can claim the bounty, particularly since it’s doubled if the fugitive is confirmed dead. Vastly outnumbered and outarmed, Riddick has only the weapons he’s improvised with – materials harvested from the local flora and fauna, along with a fierce native canine he’s managed to semi-domesticate – to fend off the mercenaries and make a break for freedom. Significantly dialing back on “Chronicles’ ” sprawling scale, the latest installment feels tentative even at a flabby 120 minutes, more like a placeholder that barely advances the considerable Riddick mythology. Playing it safe with a script that offers Riddick up as a lone avenging hero, Twohy passes on the opportunity to effectively shade the character’s distinctive dimensionality. Plenty of bone crunching and blood gushing, along with some selective nudity, have boosted the movie’s rating up to an “R,” but lacking the distinctive visual style, robust production design and planet-hopping pace of its predecessor, “Riddick” feels mired in stasis. While “Chronicles” was a full-blown space opera, the current iteration is beset by unremarkable CGI effects and tethered to limited locations. Twohy maintains skillful command of the franchise’s Frank Frazetta–inspired imagery and pulp sci-fi narrative

template throughout, but it’s all more deliberate than imaginative. Inevitably setting up another sequel at the movie’s conclusion, Twohy begs the question of where a wanted man with a price on his head who’s exiled from his home planet can really run for sanctuary. Regardless, Riddick has little time or goodwill to waste if the franchise is to manage a satisfying, coherent conclusion. – The Hollywood


“Populaire” HHH

STARRING: Romain Duris, Féodor Atkine, Déborah François PLOT: Set in 1958, Rose is a terrible secretary but a demon typist. Her handsome boss resolves to turn her into the fastest girl in the world. RATED: R for “a scene of sexuality” TIME: 1 hour, 51 minutes VERDICT: “Populaire” is a superbly crafted, finely acted but somewhat shallow retro rom-com about a young French secretary who, with the help of her highly persuasive boss, hammers her way to becoming one of the fastest typists on the planet. This impressive debut feature from writer-director Regis Roinsard is boosted by terrific lead turns from Romain Duris and Deborah Francois (“The Page Turner”), as well as some stunning old-school cinematography from Guillaume Schiffman of “The Artist.” Still, there’s something formulaic and all too overtly crowdpleasing about this sepia-toned tale of female empowerment and lost love, making for a rather soulless affair. While the love story is meant to fuel much of the action, it’s often overshadowed by the thrill of the training sessions and typing competitions, which Roinsard films as if they were some kind of office combat sport. Cutting between the competing secretaries as they pound out keystrokes and slam back their typewriter carriages, the director and editors Laure Gardette and Sophie Reine endow these sequences with the nail-biting suspense of a finale at Roland Garros, making them the real highlights of the movie. But for all the earnestness with which the filmmakers replicate the muted colors and attitudes of the post-war era, they ultimately fail to say anything truly interesting about either the past or the present, resulting in a work that feels as superficial as it does slick.
