NIU police lieutenant reinstated Merit board throws out firing of officer who misfiled rape case evidence By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com DeKALB – A Northern Illinois University police lieutenant punished for failing to give prosecutors two witness statements in a rape case could return to work next week after a merit board sided with him. The University Civil Service Merit Board voted Tuesday to throw out the disciplinary charges against Lt. Kartik Ra-

makrishnan, with a majority finding that NIU leaders couldn’t fire him because former Chief Donald Grady had already written him up in the incident, Ramakrishnan’s attorney Howard Levine said. NIU officials could appeal the decision in DeKalb County Circuit Court, but Levine did not know if they planned to do so. NIU spokesman Paul Palian said NIU officials had not received the merit board’s written deci-

sion late Thursday. “As of today, he is not in his position and is not on the university’s active payroll,” Palian said. “We await the merit board’s written order, the substance of which we are unaware at this time. This remains a personnel matter, and the university cannot comment further at this point.” Levine said Ramakrishnan wants to return to work when the merit board issues a written

order, likely next week, Levine said. Ramakrishnan, who was hired in April 2002, made $92,000 annually. If he is awarded backpay for the past five months, he could receive more than $38,000. “It’s been a significant hardship on him and his wife, but he’s looking forward to resuming a successful and productive career with NIU,” Levine said. NIU officials could appeal the decision in DeKalb County Circuit Court, but Levine did not

know if they planned to do so. NIU spokesman Paul Palian did not return calls for comment, and Bill Nicklas, NIU’s vice president for public safety and community relations, declined to comment. The merit board’s decision seemed to turn on Grady’s written reprimand, which was issued the same day former NIU President John Peters gave control of the university’s police

Sycamore, DeKalb end pool plans Park districts no longer in talks on shared facility By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com

eKALB – Rosa Ramon used to go the library, but these days the library comes to her. Bad knees and ankles make getting around difficult for Ramon, 58, of DeKalb. But thanks to Beatrice O’Connell, she doesn’t need to walk to the library to get what she wants. Ramon is among dozens of patrons who receive books, movies and music from the library through its free Outreach Services program. The program, available to registered library patrons, is one of the

few in the county and typically benefits the homebound or physically disabled. O’Connell said she always meets new people who have a story to share. Once she gets to know them, she tries to find books she thinks will suit them. “I understand what they feel, and I try my best to bring what they want,” she said. The Kirkland and Sycamore public libraries offer similar services on an informal basis upon request. “It’s just more like a public service, because some of our patrons are older and can’t get

DeKALB – Talks between DeKalb and Sycamore park districts to build a shared community pool facility have been shelved, according to a letter signed by both board presidents. Both cities have aging pool facilities that will require replacement or overhaul in the coming years, but the boards couldn’t agree on a location for such a joint facility, ending discussions, according to the letter. “Each board put together a list of considerations for such an effort,” the letter read. “In comparing these lists there was incompatibility with regard to possible locations for such a pool facility. Based on this a consensus was reached not to pursue a joint pool effort at this point in time.” Per Faivre, the vice president of DeKalb’s Park District board, said it had identified some possible locations along Bethany Road, but that Sycamore wouldn’t bend to the will of the larger town. “Both sides had what they thought were ideal locations, but we as a board felt that we had a larger population and that more patrons from DeKalb would be visiting the pool,” Faivre said. “We felt strongly that it needed to be in DeKalb, but Sycamore didn’t agree.” Sycamore’s pool is 31 years old, and Hopkins Pool in DeKalb was built 39 years ago. Although both remain

Keep food stamp recipients in mind Not to add to our collective anxiety, but next week, the U.S. House of Representatives could vote to cut the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – food stamps – by about 5 percent. The bill is moving swiftly, bypassing the House Agriculture Committee that oversees food stamps because, as the Huffington Post notes, it’s a special priority for Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., the House majority leader. Food stamps aren’t a major story. Quite the opposite: hunger in America means hanging on in quiet desperation (thanks and apologies to Pink Floyd). This proposed cut, even though the U.S. Department of Agriculture published data last week showing that 14.5 percent, or 17.6 million households, were “food insecure” in 2012. Fifteen percent translates to about 47 million Americans, which is about the same number of people enrolled in SNAP. Illinois showed the largest SNAP enrollment gain, 14 percent higher than last year. Food insecurity means households have trouble some time during the year providing enough food for all their members because of a lack of resources. The report also notes that last year, 5.7 percent (7 million households) experienced very low food security. That means the “food intake of some household members was reduced and normal eating patterns were disrupted at times during the year due to limited resources.” These rates have remained static for years. “There are 50 million people in the United States of America who are hungry, [and] 17 million are kids,”

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. “It is something we all should be ashamed of, and the United States House of Representatives is about to make that worse.” He added that there has not been a single hearing on food stamps this year. “Why is One-Sixth of U.S. on Food Stamps?” a Sept. 6 Washington Post headline pointedly asks. SNAP enrollment, which pays an average monthly benefit of about $133, rose 70 percent during the Great Recession from 2007 to 2011. Some say the data is proof of big-government dependency. However, at least two new economic studies show that “foodstamp enrollment shows a strong and persistent correlation with local unemployment rates,” the Post said. So if there were more jobs, fewer people would need help buying food? Who knew? Regardless of the House bill, the average family of four enrolled in SNAP will see its monthly benefit drop about $36 just in time for Thanksgiving. That’s because a boost to benefits from the 2009 stimulus bill is set to expire. With a salary of $193,000, a net worth of at least $3 million (according to opensecrets.org), and a smarmy demeanor (according to me), Cantor seems badly cast as spokesman for poverty or hunger. I know somebody better qualified to

speak intelligently about hunger and poverty in America: my brother-inlaw, Mike Mathews. Mike works in a poor neighborhood of Kansas City. He helps run the Bishop Sullivan Center, an emergency assistance organization. He sees poverty and hunger, up close and in real time, every day. “Almost everyone I know who is on food stamps would love to have a well-paying job, would love to be self sufficient, would love to have a place to live and transportation that is not ‘public,’ ” he said. I’ve never known hunger, but my hometown is on Route 66. Mom, who lived through the Great Depression, often told us about people at the door offering to work for a meal. Unfortunately, many of us conceptualize “hunger” in sepia tones from the Dust Bowl days. I know this: If the world’s richest, most powerful nation willingly lets 15 percent of its population – many of them kids – go hungry, we don’t have the moral high ground. “For the most part, food stamps are used by our clients to feed children who have no alternative,” Mike said. “There are hungry children in all our communities. [It’s] hard to learn with no breakfast – hard to do homework with no dinner – school lunch programs cover only one meal on school days. Food stamps are about the children.”

NASA: Voyager 1 has left solar system

Elliott was out on bond in a pending case alleging criminal trespassing and assault.

By ALICIA CHANG The Associated Press LOS ANGELES – NASA’s Voyager 1 probe has left the solar system, boldly going where no machine has gone before. Thirty-six years after it rocketed away from Earth, the plutonium-powered spacecraft has escaped the sun’s influence and is now cruising 11.5 billion miles away in interstellar space, or the vast, cold emptiness between the stars, NASA said Thursday. And just in case it encounters intelligent life out there, it is carrying a gold-plated, 1970s-era phonograph record with multicultural greetings from Earth, photos and songs, including

Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode,” along with Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and Louis Armstrong. Never before has a manmade object left the solar system as it is commonly understood. “We made it,” said an ecstatic Ed Stone, the mission’s chief scientist, who waited decades for this moment. Voyager 1 actually made its exit more than a year ago, scientists said. But since there’s no “Welcome to Interstellar Space” sign out there, NASA waited for more evidence before concluding that the probe had in fact broken out of the hot plasma bubble surrounding the planets. Voyager 1, which is about

the size of a small car, is drifting in a part of the universe littered with the remnants of ancient star explosions. It will study exotic particles and other phenomena and will radio the data back to Earth, where the Voyager team awaits the starship’s discoveries. It takes about 17 hours for its signal to reach Earth. While Voyager 1 may have left the solar system as most people understand it, it still has hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years to go before bidding adieu to the last icy bodies that make up our neighborhood. At the rate it is going, it would take 40,000 years to reach the nearest star, Alpha Centauri. Voyager 1’s odyssey be-

gan in 1977 when the spacecraft and its twin, Voyager 2, were launched on a tour of the gas giant planets of the solar system. After beaming back dazzling postcard views of Jupiter’s giant red spot and Saturn’s shimmering rings, Voyager 2 hopscotched to Uranus and Neptune. Meanwhile, Voyager 1 used Saturn as a gravitational slingshot to power itself past Pluto. Last year, scientists monitoring Voyager 1 noticed strange happenings that suggested the spacecraft had broken through: Charged particles streaming from the sun suddenly vanished. Also, there was a spike in galactic cosmic rays bursting in from the outside.

NIU grad’s killer set to be executed Oct. 15 By BRENDAN FARRINGTON The Associated Press TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Angela Crowley had a lot of job offers when she graduated from Northern Illinois University in 1985, but she chose Florida because she loved the water and could pursue her dreams to travel. About five months later, those dreams ended when William Happ kidnapped, raped and murdered her as the 21-year-old woman was traveling to meet a friend for a Memorial Day weekend at the beach in May 1986. Happ is now scheduled to be executed Oct. 15. “I never questioned her moving to Florida. I always thought it was a good move on her part,” her brother, Chris Crowley of Newburg, Mo., said Wednesday. “She

loved it. That was a key thing. She had several job offers, but that’s the one she chose because of the location, because of the weather, because of the water.” Crowley was known for community service, mentoring other students at NIU, boating and water skiing and playing the flute. Chris Crowley helped move his sister from the small town of Oregon, Ill., to Fort Lauderdale during the Christmas holiday season. He hasn’t been back to Florida since. “After she was killed I made a vow that there was no way in the world I could go to Florida until this was resolved,” Crowley said. Now he’s making plans to travel to Starke, where Happ, 51, will be executed at Florida State Prison barring

any last-minute appeals. Crowley said the execution is long overdue. Another sister of his died just six days before Gov. Rick Scott signed Happ’s death warrant. Their mother died five years ago. Aunts, uncles and other relatives who’ve been waiting for the execution also have passed away. “I keep watching relatives drop and he’s still there. It just seems that’s not the way it’s supposed to work,” Crowley said. Crowley remembers talking to his sister for a long time the night before she was murdered. She was a travel agent and she had her first chance to take a long weekend and he made sure she had maps and directions to get to her friend’s location in Yankeetown along the north Gulf coast.

“My sister could get lost backing out of a driveway,” he said. In fact, she did get lost, making a wrong turn that cost her about an hour. She called her friend to say she would be late. Her friend told her that when she got to Crystal River to go a specific convenience store and use the pay phone to call her and she would come show her the rest of the way. That call never came. When Crowley arrived at the convenience store, Happ smashed her car window, kidnapped her and brought her to a canal, where he beat her, raped her and then strangled her with her pants. He threw her body in the canal, where a fisherman found it the next day. He was sentenced to death in 1989.

Summer harvest selections at DeKalb farmers market

Permit OK’d for landfill project By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com CORTLAND – Waste Management’s plan to expand its landfill in DeKalb County has cleared a regulatory hurdle and construction of the expansion is expected to begin next year. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency has granted a development permit for the DeKalb County Landfill, which is owned and operated by Waste Management. Construction for the landfill, which is located in the southwest corner of Cortland, is expected to begin in the spring and to be completed by late 2014 or early 2015. The expansion would allow the landfill south of Interstate 88 near Cortland to accept as much as 1,800 tons of trash a day from DeKalb, Kane, McHenry and Kendall counties, Waste Management spokeswoman Lisa Disbrow said. The landfill now accepts about 300 tons of trash a day. “We’re pleased to be moving forward, and we just try to be a great community partner,” Disbrow said. The entire property is 594 acres, which includes 245 acres for the landfill. Disbrow said the expansion will add 349 acres. County Administrator Gary Hanson said the county has a host agreement with Waste Management. They continue to get updates frequently throughout the expansion process, he said. County officials have targeted fees charged to dump trash at the landfill for use in expanding the county jail. “We’re hopeful the revenues from the landfill will be sufficient to allow use for capital projects,” he said. The County Board approved Waste Management’s proposal to expand its landfill in 2010. Legal challenges by a citizens’ group known as “Stop the Mega-Dump,” which claimed that the county’s approval was unfair and not based upon available evidence, ended in May, when the Illinois Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal. There had been talk of continued legal challenges to the plan, centered around a Cortland Township Board vote to oppose the landfill expansion. However, Disbrow said the company has not received notice of any new legal action. Although the development permit for the expansion has been approved, Waste Management still will require an operating permit before it can accept trash at the expanded landfill. That permit would allow the landfill to accept municipal solid waste and nonhazardous special waste for disposal. Disbrow said the permit could be issued around the time construction is completed. Even though the design of the facility is already planned, Waste Management has not hired contractors for the project. The cost of the expansion was projected to be about $10 million for the first phase of the project, Disbrow said. She said the landfill has a yearly cap of 500,000 tons of waste. The landfill currently takes in about 300 tons of waste a day. With the expansion, the landfill could accept an additional 1,500 tons of waste, she said.

Speaker at RAMP inspired by sister’s note By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Annie Hopkins was unable to speak because of a sickness that had landed her in the hospital. A few days into her treatment, the 24-year-old’s condition took a turn for the worse and her family was called to her side. Before she died, Hopkins gave a handwritten note to her brother that has lit a fire in him that burns bright today. “They treat me like a child here,” the note read. Stevie Hopkins, like his late sister, doesn’t have the

use of his legs because of a muscle disorder that confines him to a wheelchair. “I wanted to knock down the walls,” Hopkins remembered. “I was so mad that that was my last memory of my sister, and that was Stevie the only thing Hopkins that was on her mind.” Hopkins took that passion and directed it toward spreading disability awareness. He shared his story Thursday at the RAMP Cen-

ter for Independent Living’s first Changing Attitudes and Breaking Barriers Luncheon at the Regale Center. The nonprofit organization, which has been promoting accessible solutions for people with disabilities for decades, organized the luncheon to replace its annual Wheel-A-Thon fundraising and awareness event. “For the last 15 years, RAMP’s annual fundraiser has been the Wheel-A-Thon,” said Sharon Wyland, RAMP’s board secretary. “... This year they decided to try something new and different and do a luncheon and banquet with

a speaker.” Participants had lunch, took part in a raffle and heard a success story about a local RAMP beneficiary before Hopkins came on. “We are here today to hopefully increase awareness and to diminish negative attitudes that may impede equal access for people with disabilities,” said Amy Morris, RAMP’s development director. “Changing Attitudes and Breaking Barriers not only impacts people with disabilities, but it impacts our entire community.” Hopkins, 30, of Chicago was the center of attention as

the keynote speaker. He turned his love for his sister and passion for disability equality into a business with a logo that combines the traditional handicapped logo and a heart. His sister created it while away at college with him. The company, called 3E Love, ships clothing and other products worldwide. “I started living the way my sister always had, which was, with everything you do, reach for it,” Hopkins said. “I’ve spoken to thousand and thousands of people ... I’m a workaholic, and I love what I do.”

DeKalb library works on future design Children’s area to be on 3rd floor By ANDREA AZZO news@daily-chronicle.com DeKALB – The DeKalb Public Library trustees decided this week to place the children’s area on the third floor of the expanded library. Trustees voted on the design issue Wednesday after discussing potential security problems with having the children’s area on the main floor and handicapped accessibility

issues associated with having the area on the third floor. An elevator would transport those with disabilities to the third floor. Planning is continuing for the $24 million expansion that will add 46,000 square feet to the 80-year-old building at 309 Oak St. in DeKalb. Library leaders expect to start building the expansion in March so it can open to the public in July 2015, but the project also includes working on a parking lot this fall and renovating the existing library space in late 2015 and early 2016. On Wednesday, library Di-

rector Dee Coover said several years ago, a police officer at the library for security training noticed a registered sex offender in the building, although not in the children’s section. The officer notified Dee Coover the staff right away, and no one was harmed. There have been no documented incidents of child abuse at the library, Coover said. “Just one incident, one possible incident of somebody

making [someone] feel uncomfortable in the children’s department, it would scare [him or her] away,” said Matt McCue, information technology with the library. The adult department of the library will be on the main floor. About 70 percent of library card-holders are adults. Wednesday’s meeting also included a presentation by Monsanto employee Larry Mix, who proposed a partnership with the library through the DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association. Mix’s presentation proposed a $300,000 grant, $100,000

of which would go to the library to fund the association’s exhibits and other projects. In the proposal, the association would occupy 1,370 to 1,520 square feet of space at the expanded library. Board members agreed there would need to be future discussion and negotiations with association lawyers to draft a more concrete plan. Three members of the Illinois State Library will visit the DeKalb Public Library from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday to discuss the expansion project, including construction of the parking lot.

Hawk trapped in school gym Twitter tweets its Animal control plans to go public nets, removes it By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com SHABBONA – A Cooper’s hawk swooped into the gym at Indian Creek High School on Thursday, and it wasn’t looking to play dodgeball with the students. School officials called DeKalb County Animal Control after an adult hawk chased a pigeon through an open gym door into the building, animal control Warden Dan Berres said. School officials told him the doors were open to ventilate the area, he

said. Berres headed out to the scene when he heard the bird was having difficulty finding its way out of the gym. Before he arrived, he told school officials to turn out the lights so the only light source would be from the doorways. But Cooper’s hawks, which occasionally get themselves trapped in buildings, aren’t able to swoop low, he said. “Once they go into a warehouse, they can’t get themselves out for some reason,” he said. Berres, helped by a deputy from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office and armed with a long pole with a net at the end, tried to trap the hawk.

The deputy tried to help him corner the bird and ended up chasing it around the gym, Berres said. “It was kind of like a cartoon for a while,” he said. After about an hour, the hawk was successfully netted and released. No one was hurt, including the bird, he said. The Cooper’s hawk is a small, smooth-feathered hawk that feeds on birds and rodents, Berres said. They’re common to the DeKalb County area and occasionally fly into warehouses and garage-type doors. Every year, DeKalb County Animal Control receives several cases of hawks being trapped in buildings, he said.

8LOCAL BRIEF County Board to consider Johnson for next clerk DeKALB – The DeKalb County Board will decide on approving the appointment of Republican Doug Johnson as county clerk and recorder at its meeting Wednesday. The board’s Executive Commit-

tee unanimously approved Johnson’s nomination to become the next county clerk and recorder Tuesday. Johnson has served on the DeKalb County Board of Review and was a Sandwich police commissioner six years ago. The DeKalb County Republicans chose Johnson to complete

the term of John Acardo, who resigned to become director of human resources for Kishwaukee College. State law requires that Acardo’s replacement be at least 18 years old and of the same political party, which is the Republican Party.

8OBITUARIES CLARENCE EVERETT FLOIT Born: Aug. 6, 1923, in Sycamore, Ill. Died: Sept. 9, 2013, in DeKalb, Ill. DeKALB – Clarence Everett Floit, 90, a lifelong resident of DeKalb County, died Monday evening, Sept. 9, 2013, at Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center in DeKalb. Born Aug. 6, 1923, in Sycamore, he married Esther Viola Johnson on Sept. 16, 1950, and they had five sons, all of whom survive him: Randall of Sycamore, Steve of Anaheim, Calif., Dan of San Diego, Miles of Thailand and Curtis (Lynne) of Solana Beach, Calif.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Esther; and parents, George (Jerker Flojt) and Freda (Person) Floit, all born in Sweden. He also was preceded by all his siblings: brothers Roy, Harold and Philip Floit, and sisters Vera Schlagle and Elizabeth (Lizzy) Stark. Clarence was a farm real estate broker at Midwest Real Estate of Genoa. He also was an auctioneer with Rex Nelson of Kingston for 20 years. In his early years he was a Sycamore-area farmer and worked with his brothers at Floit Sand and Gravel of Sycamore. An avid bowler, he bowled under the name “Clancy” in multiple leagues from DeKalb to Rockford. He was a huge Chicago Cubs fan and always had great hopes for “next year.” Clarence will be truly missed by the many friends he had made throughout his life. The family would like to especially thank longtime friend, Lillian Rusin of Midwest Real Estate, at his bedside to the end, for her devotion and support during his final years. They also would like to give a special thanks to his caregivers and friends at Oak Crest, who, for many years, always brought a smile to Clarence’s face. The family is very grateful for their professionalism, kindness and friendship. A family visitation will be at 11

Most of Twitter’s revenue comes from advertising. Research firm eMarketer estimates Twitter will generate $582.8 million in worldwide ad revenue this year, up from $288.3 million in 2012. By 2015, its annual ad revenue is expected to hit $1.33 billion.

NEW YORK – Twitter finally has decided to go public, but it’s taking a route that will keep most of the details about its business private for a while longer. The company aptly used its own short messaging service Thursday afternoon to announce that it has filed documents for an initial public offering of stock. But the information filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission is sealed because Twitter is taking advantage of federal legislation passed last year that allows companies with less than $1 billion in revenue in its last fiscal year to avoid submitting public IPO documents. The secrecy will likely help Twitter minimize the public hoopla and intense scrutiny that surrounded the initial public offerings of other high-profile social networking companies, including Facebook Inc., which went public in May 2012. The 7-year-old company posted on its official Twitter account that it has “confidentially submitted an S-1 to the SEC for a planned IPO.” A subsequent tweet said simply: “Now, back to work.”

It’s accompanied by a blurry photo of people working in the company’s San Francisco headquarters. Under the law, Twitter’s financial statements and other sensitive information contained in the IPO filing must become publicly available at least 21 days before company’s executives begin traveling around the country to meet with potential investors – a process known as a “road show.” Those presentations will be orchestrated by Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, a former stand-up comedian who will now get an opportunity to take his act to Wall Street. Twitter’s IPO has been long expected. The company has been ramping up its advertising products and working to boost ad revenue in preparation.

Officials investigate the scene of a road collapse Thursday at U.S. Highway 287 at the Broomfield/Lafayette border, Colo., that sent three vehicles into the water after flash flooding.

Kerry takes tough tone in Syria talks The ASSOCIATED PRESS GENEVA – Striking a tough tone, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry opened swiftly convened talks with Russia on Syria’s chemical weapons Thursday by bluntly rejecting a Syrian pledge to begin a “standard process” by turning over information rather than weapons – and nothing immediately. That won’t do, Kerry declared at an opening news conference, a stone-faced Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at his side. “The words of the Syrian regime in our judgment are simply not enough.” “This is not a game,” Kerry said of the latest developments in a series that has rapidly gone from deadly chemical attacks to threats of retaliatory U.S. airstrikes to Syrian agreement with a Russian plan to turn over the weapons and, finally, to the crucial matter of working out the difficult details. “We believe there is nothing standard about this process at this moment because of the way the regime has behaved,” Kerry said. And he kept alive the threat of U.S. military action, saying the turnover of weapons must be complete, verifiable and timely – “and finally, there ought to consequences if it doesn’t

take place.” Russian President Vladimir Putin weighed in from afar, raising eyebrows with an opinion piece in The New York Times that chided Americans for seeing themselves as “exceptional.” That was an apparent reference to a comment President Barack Obama made in his Syria speech Tuesday night, explaining why he felt the U.S. needed to take action. Congress has shown little inclination to authorize military action, and a vote on that has been put off. Putin also warned that a U.S. strike against Syria because of chemical weapons use could unleash new terrorist attacks. And he still maintained there is “every reason to believe” the weapons were used by rebels and not by Assad’s military. In Washington, Obama’s spokesman said Russia was “isolated and alone” in that view. Obama said simply that he was hoping for “a concrete result” from the talks. The back-and-forth was a stark indication of the challenging work ahead as Kerry, Lavrov and their teams of chemical weapons experts plunge into talks aimed at finding agreement on how to dismantle the chemical weapons amid the confusion and danger of Syria’s civil war.

Freshman numbers up at many Ill. universities The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHAMPAIGN – Many of Illinois’ public universities are bucking a national trend of generally declining enrollment, welcoming larger freshmen classes to their campuses this fall. Experts warn not to read too much into the increases, but the schools say higher numbers show there’s something at work – from the University of Illinois’ strong science and math programs to marketing and financial aid efforts at smaller universities to draw more students, particularly from the Chicago area. “We’ve been working hard on an overall enrollment management strategy and those efforts are beginning to pay off,” Eastern Illinois University provost Blair Lord said. The Charleston school’s

overall enrollment was down 5.7 percent but freshman enrollment went up for the first time in four years, rising 2.5 percent to 1,254. Other universities with increases included the University of Illinois’ flagship campus in Urbana-Champaign, the University of Illinois Springfield, Northern Illinois University and Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, which drew its largest freshman class in two decades after offering new scholarships and financial aid. Even declining freshman numbers at some other schools were historically high – the 1,966 students who started this fall at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, despite being 5 percent fewer than last year, are part of the fourth-largest incoming class in school history.

8STATE BRIEF Budget cuts disbanded Ill. corrections K-9 unit SPRINGFIELD – Illinois corrections officials had to use a K-9 unit from a county sheriff’s department during a manhunt last month for an escaped inmate, after budget cuts prompted the agency to disband its own dog unit. The positions of five dog handlers who worked for the Illinois Department of Corrections were eliminated last year, according to the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises

Newspapers. The workers were reassigned. The correction department’s K-9 units had been used to hunt for drugs and contraband inside state prisons, and were also used to hunt down missing inmates. But Illinois Department of Corrections spokesman Tom Shaer said the lack of state K-9s didn’t play a role in the escape by Jared Carter from the Robinson Correctional Center on Aug. 30. Carter was on the run for days.

LYONS, Colo. – Heavy rains sent walls of water crashing down mountainsides Thursday in Colorado, cutting off remote towns, forcing the state’s largest university to close and leaving at least three people dead across a rugged landscape that included areas blackened by recent wildfires. After a rainy week, up to 8 more inches fell in an area spanning from the Wyoming border south to the foothills west of Denver. Flooding extended all along the Front Range mountains and into some cities, including Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, Aurora and Boulder.

Numerous roads and highways were washed out or made impassable by floods. Floodwaters poured into homes, and at least a few buildings collapsed in the torrent. Boulder County appeared to be hardest hit. Sheriff Joe Pelle said the town of Lyons was completely cut off because of flooded roads, and residents were huddling together on higher ground. Although everyone was believed to be safe, the deluge was expected to continue into today. “It is not an ordinary disaster,” Pelle said. “All the preparation in the world ... it can’t put people up those canyons while these walls of water are coming down.” Jason Stillman, 37, said he

and his fiancee were forced to evacuate their home in Lyons at about 3 a.m. after a nearby river began to overflow into the street. Stillman, who was staying at a friend’s house on higher ground, went back to his neighborhood in the afternoon and saw how fast-moving water had overturned cars and swept away homes at a nearby trailer park. “From what I could tell, my house is sitting in Class 3 rapids,” he said. When he returns, “it’s going to be a sobering experience.” By mid-afternoon, some high-clearance vehicles were on their way to the town, where the Red Cross said about 200 people sought shelter in an elementary school.

‘Industrial double jeopardy’ at issue in officer’s reinstatement • POLICE Continued from page A1 department to Nicklas. Grady issued the written reprimand Nov. 9, and Grady and Ramakrishnan were put on paid leave the next day. Grady was fired Feb. 19, and Ramakrishnan was notified of the university’s intent to fire him and later removed from the payroll in April. The disciplinary action against both leaders centered on two NIU students who talked with them about

a rape case pending against former NIU police officer Andrew Rifkin, 25, now of Northbrook. A woman claimed Rifkin raped her in his Cortland apartment while he was off-duty Oct. 14, 2011, and reported the incident about two weeks later. Later, two of her friends told Grady and Ramakrishnan that they believed the encounter was consensual based on what the alleged victim told them and how the alleged victim acted when Rifkin stopped returning her text messages and was seen with

other women. Ramakrishnan took statements from the two women but placed them in Rifkin’s internal personnel file rather than giving them to prosecutors. DeKalb County Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert ruled Nov. 2 that NIU police intentionally withheld the evidence favorable to Rifkin from prosecutors, and a week later, ruled that jurors could learn about police officers’ actions if the case went to trial. Then-State’s Attorney Clay Campbell dropped the charge against Rifkin; the charge

was later reinstated by State’s Attorney Richard Schmack, who defeated Campbell in November’s election. The case remains pending, and is next due in court Oct. 23. Rifkin has pleaded not guilty. During a Nov. 2 hearing, Ramakrishnan said he “made a very, very bad mistake” by putting the statements in the personnel file. He said his failure to write a police report about his conversation with the two witnesses, as would be customary, was an oversight.

WASHINGTON – The slowly recovering U.S. job market has helped women rebound faster than men: They’ve now regained all the jobs they lost to the Great Recession. Men are still 2.1 million jobs short. And the gender gap is expected to persist until the job market is much healthier. To understand why, consider the kinds of jobs that are, and aren’t, being added. Lower-wage industries, like retail, education, restau-

rants and hotels, have been hiring the fastest. Women are predominant in those areas. Men, by contrast, dominate sectors like construction and manufacturing, which have yet to recover millions of jobs lost in the recession. “It’s a segregated labor market, and men and women do work in different industries, and even in different areas within industries,” says Heidi Hartmann, an economist and president of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. Economists have long

known that the recession hit men the hardest. “A man-cession,” some have called it. Or a “she-covery.” The August jobs report issued last week spotlighted the divergence: The unemployment rate for women was 6.8 percent – nearly a full percentage point less than the 7.7 percent rate for men. All told, 68 million women said they were employed last month. That topped the 67.97 million who had jobs when the recession began in December 2007, the government says.

DeKalb Public Library Outreach Coordinator Beatrice O’Connell loads her car with books.

Outreach Services started in 1970s • LIBRARY Continued from page A1 out,” Kirkland Public Library Director Linda Fett said. The Outreach Services program at the DeKalb Public Library started in the 1970s after library leaders applied for and received a grant, O’Connell said. The program was successful enough to become permanent. Several times a week, O’Connell will travel in her car to nursing homes, retirement centers and homes in DeKalb to deliver library items. Some of the places she

visits include the Barb City Manor, Golden Years Plaza and Bethany Health Care & Rehabilitation Center. She’ll deliver books – mostly large print books – music, movies and magazines. Although the job is demanding, O’Connell has developed strong relationships with many of her patrons. Ramon said O’Connell is like a sister and doesn’t know what she would do if she had to use an outreach program at another library. “She thinks just like me, and she knows what I like,” Ramon said. Louise Derix, 84, began

using the program about five years ago and now discusses much more than books, including food and recipes, with O’Connell. “I think it’s a wonderful program with a wonderful person ahead of it,” she said. O’Connell is the only library staff member assigned to the program, but she does accept volunteers. She said she’s never out of people who want to use the library delivery service. “I wish we almost had more [clients] because I think people sometimes don’t know we have that program,” she said.

8NATION BRIEF Wounded vets meet marathon attack victims BOSTON – Wounded veterans from across the U.S. and survivors who lost limbs in the Boston Marathon bombing drew inspiration from one another Thursday as they swapped stories and worked to raise public awareness of the challenges they face. Marc Fucarile, who had one leg amputated and severe injuries to the other after bombs exploded near the marathon

finish line April 15, said he was honored to meet the veterans. “It’s reassuring to talk to a wounded warrior that has the same injuries that I have and see their success and see their progress, it’s reassuring to me that I can get there and life will be better,” said the 34-year-old.

This could mean offering joint programs, sharing industry expertise, or collaborating on facilities and/or facility usage.”

Industrial double jeopardy prohibits employees from being penalized twice for the same offense. “The former Chief of Police was within his scope of authority to issue corrective action against Lt. Ramakrishnan on Nov. 9, 2012, for mishandling witness statements,” Perez wrote in the memo. “Because the written charges that counsel for the department successfully presented are based on the same offense, industrial double jeopardy is a barrier to the proposed termination.”

Is AC feasible for schools in District 428?

Public opinion always has its limits Like so many Americans, I woke up on this year’s Sept. 11 with memories of that other Sept. 11 on my mind. Where I was standing when I first heard. How quickly the confusion gave way to horror and then to fear. The pulse that pounded in my head until I heard the voices of every person I loved. Also like so many other Americans, I remembered once I was up and moving that I’m worried about what comes next in Syria. I was heartened by the president’s address the night before, but only a little. He was scheduled to speak at 9 p.m. At 8:45 p.m., it was still nearly 90 degrees in Northeast Ohio, where I live, and the system could not hold. The power went out, and our street went black minutes before the president’s broadcast. I ran out to my car in the driveway, turned it on and blasted the air conditioning and the radio. It felt appropriate to be sitting alone, surrounded by darkness, as the president described once again the horrors after Bashar Assad’s government gassed more than 1,000 of Syria’s citizens, hundreds of children. “The images from this massacre are sickening,” he said. “Men, women, children lying in rows, killed by poison gas; others foaming at the mouth, gasping for breath; a father clutching his dead children, imploring them to get up and walk. On that terrible night, the world saw in gruesome detail the terrible nature of chemical weapons and why the overwhelming majority of humanity has declared them off-limits – a crime against humanity and a violation of the laws of war.” Once you’ve seen the photos of little bodies lined up, it is impossible to forget them. We will wait, the president said, to give

VIEWS Connie Schultz diplomacy a chance to work. We will wait, but not indefinitely. Polls indicate that the majority of Americans oppose a U.S. attack on Syria, regardless of how limited its scope. I am grateful for this debate, but I am aware of its limits. I will not forget the error of public opinion in the lead-up to the Iraq War. Back then, the majority of Americans – and virtually all newspaper editorial boards – bought into a lie and supported the invasion. Eight years later, nearly 4,500 Americans were dead; another 30,000 were wounded. There were financial tolls, too. The U.S. spent more than $2 trillion on that war, inflating the national debt. I was already a newspaper columnist during the lead-up to the war. My soon-tobe husband was a member of Congress. Recently, we were packing up our house for a move, when I found two boxes full of hate mail from that time. Countless readers and constituents were angry with our opposition to the Iraq War. A few days ago, I sat in the garage and read a few of the letters – “coward” and “traitor” popped up a lot – and appreciated the timely reminder that we never should confuse consensus with leadership. Rarely do our leaders know everything before they must do something. Ultimately, it comes down to judgment. I do not always agree with President Barack Obama, as anyone who has sat at my kitchen table could tell you. But I trust his good inten-

tions, his thoughtful – even plodding – nature. It is impossible to know a president’s mind, but I am heartened by this president’s lack of swagger. How the mind wanders in these troubled times. Earlier this week, while I was out walking our dog, I thought about a little girl’s headband I’d seen a few weeks earlier. It had been early in the morning, when the dew still is waiting for the sun to make up its mind. The headband was wrapped around a public fencepost. It was light blue, one of those elastic bands that little girls loop around their necks and then push up to frame their faces. I touched the headband and imagined its young owner laughing as she ran down the street with friends, oblivious to the band slipping off her head and falling to the ground. I saw her hair suddenly loose in the wind. Her mother holding out her arms to greet her, wondering aloud, “What happened to your headband?” Maybe they laughed about it. Maybe they figured that they never would see it again and that was as bad as the news would get. I thought of the stranger who found it and wrapped it around a fencepost, hoping it would find its owner. Such a simple act of kindness. I pulled out my phone, snapped a picture and didn’t think about it for weeks. Now I can’t get that headband off my mind. Some girls are born so lucky.

For Chileans, 9/11 has different meaning By KATIE WORTH Slate SANTIAGO, Chile – As Americans remember Sept. 11, 2001, this week with video montages, scattered candlelight vigils and an avalanche of #neverforget Facebook and Twitter posts, Chileans are remembering a different 9/11 – Sept. 11, 1973, the day a CIA-backed military coup replaced a democratically elected president with a right-wing strongman. Tensions in the South American country had been rising for weeks in anticipation of the 40th anniversary of the morning in 1973 that Chile’s military, with the secret support of the United States, flew fighter jets over Santiago and bombed its own presidential palace. Within hours, Chilean President Salvador Allende – Latin America’s first popularly elected socialist president – was dead. He

was replaced by Gen. Augusto Pinochet, whose regime killed, tortured and exiled tens of thousands of Chileans. For the next 17 years, Chileans lived under an economically prosperous dictatorship that showed little regard for human rights. Each year, peaceful demonstrations commemorating the coup devolve into violent riots. Last year, the protests resulted in the death of a police officer and the injury of 20 more; some 255 protesters were arrested. This year’s demonstrations were anticipated to be the largest ever because of the 40th-anniversary milestone, new revelations about the old regime, and the lead-up to a presidential election in November. Hundreds of people gathered throughout the day Wednesday at the General Cemetery, where Allende is buried, along with hundreds of nameless victims of the regime. Others gathered at

On Monday and Tuesday, students at five elementary schools in DeKalb-based District 428 were dismissed early because of excessive heat. The five school buildings had no air conditioning or partial air conditioning. So district officials decided students would be dismissed early. Meanwhile, students in the district’s other buildings continued to go to class. That doesn’t seem exactly fair to the students and parents at Malta, Lincoln, Littlejohn, Jefferson and Founders elementary schools. For the record The students missed out on instruction time that Installing air conditioning their peers at other schools in all DeKalb schools that received, although they also lack it is an idea worth might have had some diffiexploring, at least to see culty concentrating in class- what it would cost. rooms that heated up as the day wore on. Their parents also had to make arrangements for their after-school care, which could be inconvenient for families where there are no parents or caregivers home in the early afternoon. Many school districts are like DeKalb in that they have some buildings that are not air-conditioned. But unlike most school districts, District 428 is sitting on a $21 million construction grant that it can use as it chooses. Providing air conditioning in the schools that lack it in order to bring them up to par with the other school buildings seems only fair. School officials have noted the discrepancy before, but so far have not taken action. Many people can recall attending class in hot classrooms without air conditioning. But school also used to start after Labor Day and end earlier. As a recent story from The Associated Press pointed out, school breaks now last longer and increased emphasis on standardized testing has increased the need for teacher institute days. Installing air conditioning – at least to the extent that students can attend class when it gets hot – at schools that lack it makes sense provided it can be done at a reasonable cost and the district plans to continue to use these buildings in the medium to long term. The idea is worth at least exploring so the public can see what it would cost. Ensuring that all District 428 students have a comparable level of comfort on hot days is an issue of fairness, and, if possible, should be addressed.

Destroying Syrian weapons won’t be easy The Russian suggestion that Syria put its chemical weapons under international supervision sounded like a potential diplomatic breakthrough. In the aftermath of the alleged Aug. 21 chemical attack in Damascus that is said to have killed more than 1,400 people, it would certainly seem proper for a United Nations force to march in, load the remaining bombs and artillery shells onto trucks and cart them away to a safe place for disposal – and do it fast. But the reality is forbiddingly difficult, a tall order in peacetime and nearly impossible in war. All the world’s experience so far with the destruction of chemical weapons suggests it is a time-consuming, costly and large-scale industrial process. Even making the doubtful assumption that Syrian President Bashar Assad would be willing to provide access to the Syrian chemical weapons complex, his regime is fighting a war for its existence, and the personnel sent to seize the chemical weapons could be sucked into the conflict by the warring sides. Assuming the weapons could be secured and guarded, there are still immense challenges. Consider the experience of Russia at Shchuchye, near its southern border, where the Soviet Union stockpiled chemical weapons. Row upon row of shells filled with the nerve agent sarin, not unlike those in Syria, were stored in wooden warehouses. After the Cold War, Russia and the United States jointly built a factory to demilitarize the shells. The plant cost more than $1 billion and took years to construct. The shells were drilled, and the nerve agents carefully drained and neutralized. Although Syria’s arsenal may be smaller than the Soviet one, destroying it would be no less an industrial undertaking. Could such a delicate, risky and long-term process be carried out on Syrian territory while war rages? If not, how realistic is it to imagine the weapons could be removed safely to somewhere else? And who will cover the expense of the operation? The Chemical Weapons Convention, which Syria had previously refused to join, requires accounting. Syria would have to declare, within 30 days of joining, the contents of its weapons and all production facilities. Could Assad be relied upon to file a truthful declaration, or would he attempt to hide facilities, perhaps hoping to resume production of poison gas if pressed to the wall by the rebels?

GENOA-KINGSTON 2, NORTH BOONE 0

Cogs stay unbeaten, still expect more By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com AP photo

Logano defends spot in NASCAR’s Chase field CHICAGO – Joey Logano defended his place in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship Thursday, rattling off his season statistics as proof he earned his spot in the 12-driver field regardless of any help he might have received in the deciding race. And make no mistake, Logano said: If anybody helped him at Richmond, he had no clue. The latest driver caught in the fallout of NASCAR’s investigation into Saturday night’s race at Richmond, Logano learned Wednesday that radio traffic appeared to show Front Row Racing’s crew chief and spotter talking about David Gilliland giving Logano a pivotal spot on the track in exchange for something unidentified from Penske Racing. There’s nothing in Penske radio transmissions to indicate wrongdoing, but NASCAR said Thursday it still is looking into the incident. “That is new stuff to me. Obviously, there is no transcript on our radio of anything said about it (and) obviously I would have known about it if that was the case,” Logano said. – Wire report

Bridget Halat sets the ball during the second game of a match against North Boone on Thursday night in Genoa. The Cogs defeated the Vikings, 25-22, 25-20.

GENOA – Keith Foster wasn’t completely satisfied after the Genoa-Kingston volleyball team’s 25-22, 25-20 win over North Boone on Thursday night, and neither was Olivia Cotton. The Cogs shouldn’t be playing tight games against winless teams anymore and the coach and all-state libero know that. In a way, they both know that dissatisfaction is a positive, showing just how far the undefeated Cogs (4-0, 2-0 Big Northern Conference East) have come in the past four years. “We’re thrilled that we can be slightly disappointed with the way we played and still get the win,” Foster said. “We’re excited at 4-0 and 2-0 in conference. We’re thrilled with the start of the season. And we’re also thrilled that we can be upset and be in that position.”

Although the Cogs fell behind 6-0 to the Vikings (0-6, 0-2 BNC East) in the first game, they never really expected anything other than a win. Behind eight kills from Bridget Halat, 10 digs from Cotton and 11 assists from Breea Rogalla, the Cogs did just that. Torri Bennett had three of her four aces midway through the first game, drawing the Cogs even and kicking off a 12-6 run to close the set. Despite falling behind in the second game, 10-8, the Cogs rallied and managed to coast to victory. “I knew that we would still be able to push through it the whole time,” said Halat, who had a .571 hitting percentage. “Our team, we work well together. I wasn’t worried at all; I don’t think any of us were. We expected to come out a little more on top.”

Wrestling was voted back in as an Olympic sport after the IOC had voted in February to eliminate wrestling after the 2016 Olympics.

Local coaches relieved after wrestling’s return to Olympics By JAMES NOKES sports@daily-chronicle.com Wrestling was featured in the first Olympic Games. After a Sunday vote by the International Olympic Committee, it is guaranteed to be included in the 2020 and 2024 games. In February, the IOC voted to eliminate wrestling after the 2016 Rio Games. But, FILA, the international wrestling governing body,

built a case that ensured Greco-Roman and Freestyle will be part of the next two Olympics, starting in 2020 with the Tokyo Games. As a wrestling lifer, Sycamore wresting coach Alex Nelson was relieved when the news hit of the overwhelming vote to reinstate wrestling, which was chosen over squash and softball/baseball by the IOC. “I was a little heart-broken

I didn’t understand how a sport that was part of the first Olympics could just be tossed aside. When the vote came through though it was a good day. I was excited.” With changes to the scoring system and weight classes, wrestling was able to fend off the criticism that it had be-

HINCKLEY-BIG ROCK VOLLEYBALL

Well-rounded H-BR off to quick start Paver taking on leadership role By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com HINCKLEY – Hinckley-Big Rock junior Jacqueline Madden winced in pain with a half-smile on her face and shook her hands during the second game of the Royals’ 25-13, 25-11 loss Tuesday to the Crossroads Crusaders. It signified the sting Madden felt in her hands after trying to dig one of Alexis Simmons’ hardest spikes.

The loss wasn’t surprising or especially disappointing for the Royals. They were missing two of their tallest players against a talented team with a hitter, Simmons, who committed to Nebraska days earlier. Matches like Tuesday’s make a team from a small school better, even if egos and hands are left with bruises. “That was the first time playing somebody like that, so we’re not used to digging up some of those hits,” senior Lauren Paver said. “But yeah, we can learn from it. … They were good hits, so it’ll be better when there are not as good hitters as them.” And overall, the Royals have started the season pretty well. Af-

ter a 3-0 start, they went 2-2-1 in last weekend’s Somonauk tournament. H-BR’s first few weeks weren’t just the start to the volleyball season – they were the start of an athletic year in which at least six female athletes will play volleyball, basketball and soccer. Every humbling experience, every big win, every lesson taught should, in theory, carry over throughout the year. “We all play together, so we all know how to play together, we know what we’re going to do,” Paver said. “We’ve been playing together since we were 6, 7 on little leagues all the way up to here.” The unquestioned vocal leader of

this group surprised even coach Joanne Weirich. Paver has shown the potential to be a top athlete at H-BR, but the quiet senior began to speak up this summer in a move that she admits was a little unnatural. “I wasn’t sure how much she would talk this year as a captain because she’s always been more quiet, and she’s come out and she is the team leader on the court,” Weirich said. “That’s what I was hoping for and that’s what I got. “She surprised me because she’s a lot quiet, and I wasn’t sure what she was going to do as a senior.”

BEARS ANALYSIS

Bears ‘O’ prepares for familiar scheme By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com LAKE FOREST – If the Bears’ offensive line can hold its own against Jared Allen, Brian Robison and the Vikings’ front, it will give Jay Cutler an opportunity to throw against a young Minnesota secondary. In a few years, the Vikings’ back end could look like the Bears’ group, but for now, it’s still a unit that allowed 357 passing yards last week and finished 24th against the pass last season. Starters Josh Robinson and Harrison Smith are in their second season and Xavier Rhodes, who comes on the field in the nickel, is a rookie, but the Bears aren’t looking past this unit. “They have skill in the back end. They have speed and they’ve made plays in the past,” said offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer. Marc Trestman compared the Vikings’ Cover 2 defense to a look from the early 2000s, citing how physical the defensive backs are and their ability to defend the run. “From the sideline or from

the casual observer, it almost looks like they’re playing man-to-man coverage in their Cover 2 as you come off the line of scrimmage,” he said. “They play their positions very well. They’re disciplined back there. We’ve got a lot of challenges.” A Cover-2 scheme that relies on very physical corners – sound familiar? “It’s a very similar structure,” Trestman said about the Vikings’ scheme compared to what the Bears’ offense sees in practice against its own defense. “[There are] subtle differences in how they play certain techniques, but very similar structure.”

Protecting Jay, Week Two: New Bears left tackle Jermon Bushrod gets the task this week of blocking Allen, one of the game’s best pass rushers the past few seasons. “I’ve played him a few times and it’s no letdown every play,” Bushrod said. “He’s going to the ball hard every single play so I’ve got to be striking on all cylinders to get it done this week.” Cutler knows Allen can make a difference, but believes Bushrod can keep his blind side clean.

Snedeker leads at BMW after first round Brandt Snedeker was making so many birdies that even an 18-foot putt looked like a mere tap-in. When he finished his amazing run Thursday in the BMW Championship, he had seven straight birdies on his card and an 8-under-par 63 at blustery Conway Farms. That gave him a one-shot lead over Zach Johnson in the third FedEx Cup playoff event. Tiger Woods, Steve Stricker, Charl Schwartzel and Kevin Streelman were at 66.

Olivia Cotton bumps a returned ball during the first set of Thursday night’s match against North Boone in Genoa.

Cogs looking ahead to Burlington Central • COGS Continued from page B1 Part of the confidence that exudes from the Cogs comes from the fact that almost every girl plays on a club team. Whether they play for top teams such as Club Fusion, Top Flight or Aggression, the new local club, the G-K players are receiving plenty of return on their offseason hours. “You can tell a huge difference, just the amount of time they’re putting in over the summer versus during the school year, it helps a lot,” Cotton said. “We’re definitely holding ourselves to a higher expectation. Even though we’re winning and we’re not

pleased with it. That’s how high we hold ourselves this year.” After a tournament in Byron, the Cogs take on Big Northern Conference powerhouse Burlington Central, whom the Cogs haven’t beaten during Cotton or Foster’s time at G-K. Although Cotton said she’ll be happy if Tuesday’s match is close and she feels good about the effort, a win would punctuate just how far this program has come. “It’s definitely a goal,” Cotton said. “That’s one of the teams that we’ve always lost to as being a really good game or a close game, so that’s something we really want to tackle this year.”

Matt Forte runs for a first down as Brandon Marshall blocks Cincinnati’s Vontaze Burfict on Sunday at Soldier Field.

Bears offense still in development stages It was the spring of 1959 when the Coasters released the first of their three Top 10 hits that year, “Charlie Brown.” By early summer, half of America sat waiting for the chorus every time the song played: “Why is everybody always pickin’ on me?” The song is still fun today and could quite possibly be the theme song for the Bears’ offense. This week it was Jamie Dukes, former offensive lineman with the Atlanta Falcons and current analyst with the NFL Network, who suggested the Bears’ offense hasn’t really changed at all. Really? That’s not what everybody else has been saying. Let’s take a look. In 2012, the Bears averaged 23.4 points a game, 310.6 yards a game on offense, 123.1 rushing yards a game, 187.4 passing yards a game and 36.5 percent third-down efficiency. Against the Bengals, the Bears scored 24 points, produced 323 yards of offense, 81 yards on the ground, 242 through the air and converted 42.9 percent of the time on third down. Hmm, could Dukes be on to something? Maybe. But if you understand that statistics can lie and know to look a little deeper, you can go all Lee Corso on Dukes with a “not so fast my friend.” Pull back the covers and you see that it appears a big part of coach Marc Trestman’s plan is success will breed more success, and he’s trying to get the fundamentals in place. The reality is that the Bears’ offense was different in the first half against Cincinnati than it was in the second. Asked what halftime adjustments he made, Trestman said none. He just wanted to “keep Jay clean” in the first half, in essence saying, “Let’s prove to ourselves we can block this, and then we’ll go for more.” In the second half, Trestman said he just started calling more of the plays in the game plan once he knew they could block them. The offense was actually worse than last year in the first half, producing just 92 yards, but much better than 2012 in the second half, churning out

NFL NATIONAL CONFERENCE

231 yards. Jay Cutler was asked Thursday if he thinks the offense is restricted at this point. “Yes and no,” he said. “I think, at the end of the day, we want to make sure we protect and we’re able to get rid of the ball. We don’t want to take sacks. We want to keep the front five confident, keep me confident and believing in those guys. But, at the same time, we’ve got to play football. If that requires us taking a shot or getting five (receivers) out, that’s what we’ve got to do.” Which brings us to another point about where the offense is now and where it’s going. It’s hard to get five receivers out if you’ve only got three. That Marquess Wilson was inactive against the Bengals and Joe Anderson dressed but didn’t take a single snap on offense speaks volumes about where Trestman believes his receiving corps is. It’s not to say the kids can’t play, but apparently they’re not ready yet. So far, it appears offensive linemen Kyle Long and Jordan Mills are ready. But they’re not playing because they were so ready Trestman couldn’t keep them off the field, they’re playing because they have to. Anyone who suggests this offense isn’t dramatically different from what Bears fans are used to just isn’t paying attention to personnel groupings, playcalling and execution. This offense is already better than any the Bears have fielded in recent seasons and very different from what Mike Tice, Mike Martz and Ron Turner coached. But just how good will have to wait until it’s been fully taught, fully learned and until Trestman has all the bullets he needs to fully load his gun. I’m not a fan yet, I just know there’s still a lot we haven’t seen.

Barbs a contender in NI Big 12 Knights fight through mid-season drought

SPOTLIGHT ON JAKE HED Kaneland, fr. Depth is a luxury Kaneland, a team with aspirations to again repeat as Northern Illinois Big 12 East champions and qualify for state, has on its roster. In a bounce-back, 150-164 win against Yorkville, Hed fired off a 38. On Wednesday, the Knights beat long-time nemesis Wheaton Academy by two strokes, and Hed shot a 41. “Jake is a good young player,” Kaneland coach Mark Meyer said. “We look forward to him continuing to post big scores for the team.”

VIEWS James Nokes

Standard rules, exposure next challenges for sport • WRESTLING Continued from page B1 Previous Olympic wrestling rules rewarded the winner of a period one point. Thus, there was no reward for a wrestler to press forward with action after a takedown. He or she simply could play defense, circle, stall or ride out an opponent rather than take a risk to score again. “The rule changes should create more action,” Nelson said. “The scores should be higher, there should be more action and wrestlers shouldn’t just be worried about winning a period.” Although the rules changes were a driving force behind wrestling’s reinstatement, DeKalb wrestling coach Mike Pater wants FILA to commit to

a set of rules so wrestlers and coaches can adapt and the game can continue to grow. “We’ve got to find a way to streamline the rules,” Pater said. “It seems like there’s always a change in weight classes, rules or scoring. Every few months it seems like there’s a change again. We need clear-cut rules that everyone can agree on.” Because wrestling doesn’t have the TV exposure of baseball, basketball or football, or even other niche sports such as hockey, golf or tennis, a concerted effort to maximize it to the public is necessary. ESPN added live coverage of the NCAA wrestling tournament to its family of networks, which is a much-needed lift. “Wrestling needs to be highlighted

more,” Pater said. “It needs to be more visible. We need to self-promote more. The internet helps with that because websites carry live, streaming matches, but after the Olympics it seems like wrestling goes away for four years. There are national and international competitions taking place. “Some colleges do a good job of promoting the sport, but it’s up to everyone to make sure this doesn’t happen again and to keep wrestling a prominent sport.” Exposure and promotion are the start of a battle Nelson wants to see continue. “The next fight is to secure wrestling as a core sport,” Nelson said. “There’s no doubt it is and there’s no doubt it should be. It’s been around since the beginning and should always be an Olympic sport.”

BOXING

Big money, titles on line for Mayweather By TIM DAHLBERG The Associated Press LAS VEGAS – If Richard Schaefer looked a bit nervous standing near his fighters on a massive stage this week at the MGM Grand, he had good reason. In a city of high rollers, on one of the biggest betting days of the year, the head of Golden Boy Promotions is taking the biggest gamble of all. He’s got $60 million on the line that Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Canelo Alvarez will not only deliver a great fight, but deliver at the box office, too. He’s betting the 152-pound matchup between two unbeaten fighters will be a blockbuster, perhaps the richest fight ever. And right now, there are not a lot of wise guys in this gambling city who would bet against him. “My goal is to break the record,” Schaefer said. “I think we will do 2 million homes, which will make it the single biggest pay-per-view in boxing.” If it is, it will be largely because Golden Boy is charging the single biggest price for a boxing match, a whopping $74.95 if you want to watch in HD. That will give boxing fans at home not only the most anticipated fight in years but a 140-pound title fight between Danny Garcia and Lucas Matthysse that would be a headline bout anywhere else. Want to be there in person? The fight sold out in hours, but you can still find a seat

on the main floor for $9,422. If that’s too rich, the cheapest nosebleed seat Thursday on StubHub was $1,687. Schaefer said the fight is such a hot ticket for the celebrity crowd that they’re calling asking to buy tickets instead of getting them free. Magic Johnson wanted some and so did Kobe Bryant, but his choice of ringside seats in the center of the front row were already taken. “Saturday could be a $200 million night,” Schaefer said. “Boxing is hardly a dying sport.” Not when it has the country’s highest-paid athlete. Mayweather will make at least $41.5 million for the 12-rounder, bringing his salary this year to $73 million in two fights. Alvarez, the red-headed star from Mexico, won’t do too badly himself, with a $5 million guarantee and a chance to make double that if the fight is a big hit. For Schaefer and Golden Boy it’s a bit more complicated. They get a windfall guarantee from the Showtime network, which Schaefer says doesn’t even cover Mayweather’s purse. And after splitting with cable and satellite companies they’ll end up with about $35 from every house that buys the fight. Toss in a $19.9 million live gate and a few million here and there from sponsorships and foreign rights sales, and it could be a nice payday indeed for the company Schaefer and Oscar De La Hoya founded.

Boxers Floyd Mayweather (left) and Canelo Alvarez pose during a news conference Wednesday in Las Vegas, Wednesday. They are scheduled to fight Saturday for Mayweather’s WBA Super World and Alvarez’s WBC junior middleweight titles. “I’m going to obviously get some money Monday morning,” Schaefer said. “But I’m going to be out by the time the first bell rings well over $60 million.” Those in boxing familiar with big fight promotions don’t think Schaefer will have to worry about closing his company’s doors. He begins to make money at about 1.5 million pay-per-view buys, and the indications are that this fight will exceed that, though getting to 2 million might be a stretch (Mayweather’s 2007 fight with De La Hoya is the biggest selling boxing pay-per-view at 2.4 million buys). Mayweather is the big driver behind those sales, of

course. He’s the champion in the ring and he’s the champion in selling the fight to those watching at home, though his fight in May against Robert Guerrero was a bit of a box office dud at about 900,000 buys. But the 23-year-old Alvarez is already a huge star in Mexico and is seen as the biggest challenger to Mayweather since he beat De La Hoya on a split decision in 2009. Oddsmakers favor Mayweather by 2½-1, narrow odds by his standards. “Canelo is sort of a trailblazer, comparisons are being made to Oscar,” said Stephen Espinoza, the executive vice president of Showtime sports, who formerly worked for Golden Boy.

BLACKHAWKS

Hawks experimenting with Saad at center By MARK LAZERUS Chicago Sun-Times SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Joel Quenneville talked about how versatile Brandon Saad was, about how he spent some years early in his junior career as a center, and how that experience should help Saad make the transition from left wing this season. Then it was pointed out that Saad had just said that he never had played center in his life. Not even as a kid. “He’s never played center?” Quenneville asked, before smirking. “Well, he goes all over the ice anyway.” No, Saad’s move to second-line center for the Blackhawks was not part of some grand plan, not some calculated and carefully thought-out move. It’s more of a hunch. An experiment, even. After all, on a championship team with loads of returning talent and few holes to fill, you can afford to try some things during training camp. So there was Saad during the first day of camp Thursday, skating down the middle of the ice flanked by Patrick Sharp on the left and Marian Hossa on the right. “We’ll see how it plays itself out, but it could happen,” Quenneville said. “I thought he looked pretty good in the middle. That line looks like it could be a dangerous line.” Saad admitted to being “surprised” by the position switch, but being thrown into the fire is nothing new for the 20-year-old. After Daniel Carcillo’s knee injury on opening

day last season, Saad suddenly was thrust into a starring role on the Hawks’ top line. He instantly clicked with Jonathan Toews and Hossa, and posted 10 goals and 17 assists with a plus-17 rating, and was a finalist for the Calder Trophy as the league’s top rookie. So it’s just another shift on the fly for the sturdy, savvy 6-foot-1, 202-pound Saad “I guess there’s some similarities there with throwing me into a new position,” Saad said. “But I’m prepared for it, I’m ready to go and I’m looking forward to the challenge.” Saad doesn’t have the position locked up, he’s just getting the first crack at it. His primary competition will come from Brandon Pirri, the AHL’s leading scorer last season. Although Pirri said he’d be fine playing on the third or fourth line – “I would do it with a smile,” he said – he’s hoping to get the same chance Saad had as a rookie, to play a top-six role with elite, veteran players and expedite the learning curve. To hold off Pirri, a natural center, Saad will need to show he can handle the many demands of playing the pivot. He has proven himself a playmaker who’s strong on the puck and not afraid to be physical, but now he’ll need to be more defensively responsible in his own end, and take faceoffs. He was a paltry 17 of 46 (37 percent) on draws last season.

Weirich: ‘I think we have a good solid group this year’ • ROYALS Continued from page B1 So while they took their lumps early this week, the Royals know winning games early in the season isn’t the end-all. Weirich is happy with how well-rounded her team is, and the leadership role that was mostly absent last season has been filled. And as H-BR dives into the

Little Ten Conference season, the Royals be better for their preseason success as well as their struggles. “We had a great start and we played well over the weekend against bigger schools,” Weirich said. “I’m really happy. I think we have a good solid group this year. We don’t really have any big, empty weak spots out there. We have a good group of girls that have come together.”

A statue of Martin Luther King Jr. stands in a park across the street from the historical 16th Street Baptist Church, the African-American place of worship that was at the heart of the city’s violent civil-rights struggle in the 1960s, in Birmingham, Ala. The church was the scene of a bombing that took the lives of four black children.

Still Standing 16th Street Baptist Church’s mission continues 50 years after bombing killed four girls in struggle for civil rights By SHERREL DENISE STEWART The Washington Post

T

he doors of Birmingham, Alamaba’s 16th Street Baptist Church are open seven days a week, and almost every day, visitors from across the country and around the world come to see the place where a bomb killed four little girls Sept. 15, 1963, at the height of the struggle for civil rights in the city. From the black-and-white images of shattered windows, crumpled bricks and grieving families, the world saw the depth of racial hatred in what was then called America’s most segregated city. At the time, blacks in Birmingham were fighting in the courts and marching in the streets for desegregated schools and equal access to public places. They were standing up so that they could sit at any table in lunch counters, regardless of the color of their skin. Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, on the western edge of the downtown business district, was the place where marchers often gathered to get instruction and inspiration from leaders such as the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and Martin Luther King Jr. Fifty years later, the church still stands, but it reflects a different image, said the Rev. Arthur Price, pastor of the church. “Everything here is not all black and white,” he said. “Through this terrible tragedy, God transformed this city from a bitter place to a better place. “Birmingham has come a long way, but we still have work to do,” Price added. ——— Once a week, the church networks with local courts to host a mentoring program for “deadbeat dads.” The program helps the men to change their lives and become the kind of supporters their

families need. There’s also a program to mentor people struggling with addiction to drugs and alcohol. “We realize that a lot of people come to visit here because of the history, but we’re a Bible-centric church,” said Price. “Our goal is to save the lost and show the love of Jesus Christ. Regardless of who is here, we stay focused on our mission.” Price, a native of Philadelphia, came to 16th Street Baptist 11 years ago after pastoring in Buffalo, N.Y. He had heard about the bombing that killed the four little girls but had not been exposed to much of the city’s civil rights history until he and his family arrived in 2002. “I didn’t come here because of the history. I came because of the calling,” Price said. “I came because of the need.” Indeed, the church can take on the feel of a monument to history. Last Sunday, Price preached a sermon titled “From Trouble to Triumph,” while a crew from PBS filmed the service for a broadcast segment. Outside of the church, visitors to the Birmingham Civil Rights District snapped photos. Price usually preaches to a congregation of about 500 people, with visitors often mingled among the worshippers. “Visitors usually come because of history, but the regular worshippers come because they want to hear a word from the Lord,” Price said. The church will be packed full of visitors this Sunday and among the anticipated visitors are U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, members of Congress and leaders from throughout the city and around the country. At 10:22 a.m., a memorial wreath will be laid near the point where a bomb ripped through the women’s restroom, killing Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Denise McNair and Carole Robertson. The families of the girls received the Congressional Gold Medal on Tuesday.

The four girls were not the only youths to lose their lives to violence in the Birmingham area on Sept. 15, 1963. Two Eagle Scouts shot and killed 13-year-old Virgil Ware as he rode on the handlebars of his brother’s bicycle, just west of the city. Also on that day, Johnny Robinson, a 16-year-old, was gunned down by a white police officer as he and other youths ran in an alley near downtown. “We remember the four girls, and the two boys,” Price said. ——— Sixteenth Street Baptist had a rich history and a place of prominence in the community even before the bombing, said Horace Huntley, an AfricanAmerican historian and author of Black Workers’ Struggle for Equality in Birmingham. The Rev. William Reuben Pettiford, pastor of the church in 1890, founded the Penny Savings Bank, which was the first black-owned bank in Alabama, said Huntley. “Sixteeth Street Baptist was significant in the city’s economic life and in its spiritual life. It was one of the churches where you could find Birmingham’s black middle class,” he said. The church’s parking lot still reflects the middle class and a cross-section of America. Cadillacs, imported cars and SUVs bear allegiance to Alabama A&M, Miles College, the University of Alabama, Auburn University, Tennessee State University and Stillman College. The bombing of 16th Street Baptist Church touched almost every segment of life in Birmingham, even in faraway places. The people of Wales responded by raising funds to replace the glass windows in the church of a place where most had never visited. Artist John Petts in Llansteffan, Carmarthenshire, offered to create and install the window. The editor of the Western Mail started a campaign to raise the money for the window. Today

that window can be viewed best from the church balcony. It depicts a black Jesus beneath a rainbow of racial unity. The right arm pushes away hatred and injustice. The left offers forgiveness. Kathleen Bunton, a longtime member of the church and coordinator of the Tour Ministry, said forgiveness is an important lesson shared with visitors to the church. Bunton was not a member of the church in 1963, but she was in Birmingham on the day of the bombing. She heard the blast. “Everyone heard it. The sound was overwhelming,” she said. “When we heard on the television what happened, we went to the church.” In her more than 15 years as a tour guide at the church, she and the tour team have welcomed visitors from all 50 states and from as far away as Australia. “People often ask if we are angry or bitter. They want to know how we still deal with the tragedy today,” said Bunton, a retired social studies teacher. “We tell them about the love of Jesus.” Candie Price, the wife of the Rev. Price and a public relations manager, puts it like this: “We tell history and we tell His story.” The church has enhanced its website and is using social media to spread the word about activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the bombing, as well as ministry opportunities, worship services and Bible study. The four little girls had just left Sunday school class and were preparing for youth worship. They were in a church restroom when the bomb blast ripped through the east side of the church at 10:22 a.m. There also will be a special Sunday school lesson as part of Sunday’s commemoration, Price said. “We will be teaching from the topic ‘A Love That Forgives.’ “

Federated Church celebrates water ceremony Karen Hamingson pours water she collected from North Carolina and Ontario, Canada, into a bowl during a water ceremony Sunday at the Federated Church in Sycamore.

By DOUG OLESON doleson@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Virginia Larsen finally remembered. “I just kept forgetting to do it,” she said. But this year, when her family visited Lake Mildred in Wisconsin over the summer, she made sure her grandson got her a bottle of lake water. Larsen was one of about 10 members of the Federated Church of Sycamore who participated in the third annual Water Communion on Rally Day last Sunday. Near the end of the service, members poured water they had gathered during summer trips into a large bowl and explained where they got it and why it was important. According to pastor Dr. Dennis Johnson, water communion, also known as the water ceremony, was first used at a Unitarian Universalist worship service in the 1980s. It’s usually held once a year. “In a sense, water communion symbolizes living water from many streams flowing into one larger sphere,” Johnson said. “It represents that, beyond our scattering in summer, we are brought

Alligators headed back to Shabbona United Church Jim Nesci will return to Shabbona United Church of Christ with his collection or rescued reptiles for the annual Rally Sunday Carnival on Sunday. Nesci’s animals include Bubba and Lucky, the alligators; Big Al and Tank the tortoise; Blondie, the 17-foot albino Burmese python; and Dragon and Godzilla, the lizards. This year’s theme is “All God’s Creatures Are Beautiful!” taken from the Bible verse found in 1 Samuel 16:7. It says “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” For many people, reptiles may not be the most attractive creatures, but like people, God looks at the heart and His purposes. Nesci is the founder and director of Cold Blooded Creatures. All of the reptiles in the presentation have been rescued. Nesci was good friends with Steve Irwin of “Crocodile Hunter” fame. Nesci and his reptile friends have made appearances on the “Today” show, “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,“ “Live with Regis and Kelly,” among others. Nesci makes appearances all over the country attempting to eliminate the myths that surround reptiles. He is an

back together as a community. The water poured together reminds us that our lives are connected to a greater good and purpose.” Johnson suggested the service when he came to the church three years ago. “It’s another way of saying we are a community,” he said. The congregation then blesses and sometimes boils the water to be used as holy water in child dedication ceremonies. “I really think it’s kind of fun,” said Carol Fogle, who collected a little pill bottle full of water from Europe and Baton Rouge, La. “It’s really a neat idea.” Sally Stevens collected water from Iowa City, where she cheered on the Northern Illinois University football team to an upset win over Iowa to kick off the 2013 season. “I worked at NIU for 32 years,” she beamed. “I have Huskie blood.” Stevens said the ceremony can bring people together, especially if someone has visited the same location where the water was taken. “It opens the door to new friendships,” she said. “It’s a way to get acquainted.”

Nesci’s presentation at Shabbbona UCC a few years ago was the most talked about Rally Sunday ever and this year promises the same, according to Pastor Jim Allen. “I think everyone was amazed they could hold a 17-foot-long python in their hands or ride an alligator up and down the aisle of the church,” he said in an news release.

The presentation will be held at 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the church santuary at 104 E. Navaho St., Shabbona. Everyone is invited. The feeding time, for the humans – not the alligators, will follow the service. Also following the service will be a carnival with games and food for all ages.

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Safe cycling practices get shrift from riders Dear Abby: Now that California law prohibits drivers from using cellphones and texting while driving, an additional issue needs to be addressed and acted upon. Bicyclists are supposed to abide by the vehicle codes, too, but they rarely do – and that includes not wearing protective gear. I’m now seeing people on bikes texting, talking while riding and routinely ignoring stop signs. Disappointingly, I have never seen a single rider pulled over or ticketed for doing this. How many lives must be destroyed or lost before the police start enforcing penalties for the danger these people cause to others? – Caring Reader, Sacramento, Calif. Dear Caring Reader: You’re asking something I have been

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips asking myself for some time. I understand that teenagers may think they’re immortal as they whiz along the streets, but the adults I see weaving in and out and ignoring stop signs are old enough to know better. Many cities promote bicycling as a way to mitigate traffic congestion and encourage a healthier, more active lifestyle. Police may ignore the infractions because they have more serious crimes to attend to. Or perhaps they have been instructed to do so. (If members of law enforcement would like to address this, I’d love to hear from

you.) While I’m on the subject of cyclists, I should mention my own concern about riders who wear dark clothing and ride after dark. Not all neighborhoods are well lit, and I have seen near misses because of it. Although dark colors are fashionable, wouldn’t it make sense for people who ride at night to wear jackets with reversible linings in a lighter color? (I have seen a few with fluorescent trim, but there haven’t been many.) And if drivers are pulled over for broken or missing headlights or taillights, shouldn’t the same be true for bicyclists? Dear Abby: My son serves on a ship in the Navy in an area known for terrorism. People who know this tell me how

safe his ship is, how strong the U.S. military is, etc. PLEASE, people, when I (or anyone else who has a family member in the military) ask for prayers or express concern, do NOT offer these platitudes. Understand that our fears are real, and so are our tears. Offer a hug, a handsqueeze, say you will pray for us – but understand that until our loved ones are back on U.S. soil, our fears and tension won’t lessen. Unless you have been in our shoes, you can’t know how we feel when we watch the news because we have no true idea of what is going on. Our military family members can’t tell us, and often we have no (or limited) contact with them. I cry alone often. I am proud of my son for

his service and even encouraged it, but this is a rough time for me and others who are in this situation. – Military Mother Dear Military Mother: Thank you for writing. Many people are uncomfortable when they encounter an emotional situation and don’t know what to say. Their impulse is to “make it better,” not realizing that sometimes a gesture is more eloquent than words can be. I agree with you that when a loved one is in harm’s way, it is an emotional rollercoaster ride for all concerned – the parents, the siblings, the spouses and the children of our servicemen and -women.

Avoid the ‘top 10’ list of foods with high salt Dear Dr. K: I’m trying to cut back on salt in my diet. Can you help me get started? Where does most of the salt in my diet come from? Dear Reader: You may be surprised to hear that, for most Americans, just 10 types of food deliver almost half of our daily sodium. Here’s the list: • breads and rolls • cold cuts/cured meats • pizza • poultry • soups • hamburgers and other sandwiches • cheese • pasta mixed dishes • meat mixed dishes • chips, pretzels and other savory snacks

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff (For children ages 2 to 5, hot dogs and sausages come in at No. 3.) At first glance, it seems odd that breads and rolls top the list. After all, they aren’t nearly as salty as chips or cheese. But since we eat breads and rolls more often, the modest amounts of sodium they contain add up. The body needs some sodium to function, but too much sodium can increase blood pressure and make the kidneys work harder. High

blood pressure is a leading cause of stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease and more. Americans take in an average of 3,266 milligrams of sodium a day, or about 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. That’s well above the healthy target of 2,300 milligrams a day, or 1 teaspoon. And some authorities say that the target of 2,300 milligrams a day is too high. For people at risk for heart disease, kidney disease and stroke – such as people with high blood pressure or diabetes – a target of 1,500 milligrams a day is better. As you cut down on salt in your diet, the first logical step is to limit or avoid the foods on

the “top 10” list. Next, be mindful when you shop for groceries or eat in restaurants. The most sodium-heavy foods we eat tend to be processed foods. So minimize canned or prepared foods, as well as foods that are salted, smoked or cured, such as cold cuts, bacon and cheese. You can always check the Nutrition Facts label on packaged food in supermarkets to see how much salt is in a prepared food. Be careful that you determine what the Nutrition Facts label considers a “serving.” A can may say there are 500 milligrams of sodium in a “serving,” leading you to think that means 500 mil-

ligrams in the whole can. But most of the time, the can will contain several servings. This may seem like obvious advice, but I’m surprised by how many of my patients don’t look at the definition of “serving” that’s on the label. Replace processed foods with foods made from scratch. Eat more vegetables and fruits. Replace salt with herbs, spices and flavorings. When you eat out, if possible, ask that your food be made without salt. At chain restaurants, menus that list nutrition information can help you choose wisely.

He was an all-state running back and had many scholarship offers, but chose the Big Ten because of its wonderful national media coverage. My son has dreamed of playing professional football ever since he met a professional football player at an athletic banquet 10 years ago. The Big Ten university has a wonderful academic reputation, so if he got injured playing football or didn’t have the skills to play professional football, he would have a quality education.

TODAY – Monitor what’s going on in your personal life, but don’t make hasty decisions that could affect your personal finances in the year ahead. The experience you gain by getting involved in organizations you believe in or with people who share your concerns will pay off. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Travel plans will lift your spirits. Even if you take a short trip or sign up for an evening of fun and games, it will do much to enliven your day. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Emotional involvements will escalate if you don’t take care of them. Walk away from anyone who’s too demanding or not looking out for your best interest. Don’t be afraid to do your own thing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Put some creative thought into your home and family life. Consider changes that will encourage you to be more innovative and adventurous. Personal improvements will build confidence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Do what you can to help others, but don’t make any financial contributions. Offer suggestions, hands-on help or even a shoulder to cry on, but nothing more. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Mix business with pleasure and you will make new friends and improve your reputation. Include someone you are involved with personally, or you may face a dilemma at home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – You’ll come up with interesting ideas, but not everyone will share your vision. Don’t invest in a scheme if it’s too ahead of its time; it’ll keep. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – If you devote some time to a physical improvement regimen, you’ll be pleased by the results. You’ll have a whole new sense of confidence, which could lead to romance. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Take on a physical challenge today. Size up an emotional situation and defuse it before it’s too late, or prepare to walk away for good. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Put relationships and your future intentions in the spotlight, and discuss your plans with the people who count. A face-to-face encounter will help settle matters quickly. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – You’ll have some good ideas, but not everyone will be prepared to receive them. Prepare to do the legwork and clear up any weak links before presenting your plans. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Take some time to hang out with someone you find intriguing. Express your thoughts and make long-term plans that will ensure your security. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Bring about certain changes that will make you happy. You won’t please everyone, but you will at least know where you stand and how you can and should proceed.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association reports that approximately one in 12,000 college athletes becomes a professional. Dr. Wallace: My girlfriend and I had been living together for a while, and we have a young daughter. Our relationship was great until my brother was killed in an accident in Colombia. I changed after his death. I walked around with a chip on my shoulder, acted like I didn’t care what happened to me and treated everyone, includ-

I still love the mother of my baby, but I also hate her for leaving me alone. Help! – Nameless, Nogales, Ariz. Nameless: Life teaches harsh and sometimes irreversible lessons. I am sorry about your brother’s untimely death and can understand that it created chaos in your life. Alas, when you treat someone like dirt – no matter what psychological “justification” lies behind it – you reap what you sow. If you treated your girl-

friend badly enough, she and the baby may be gone for good. You say you still love her, but you also hate her for leaving you. As long as that anger and hatred are tainting your love, she is unlikely to return to you and, indeed, would be foolish to do so. If she wrote to me asking for advice, I’m sure I’d tell her not to. Why should she trust you? Your only course of action is to apologize to her from the bottom of your heart and then move on with your life. You should apologize not to get her back but because it’s the right thing to do.

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Remember bidding and count points Vinoba Bhave, an Indian advocate for human rights who died in 1982, said, “Innumerable actions are going on through us all the time. If we started counting them, we should never come to an end.” Luckily, it is not that tough at the bridge table. But the more counting you do, the better you will play. In today’s deal, South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond king. East overtakes with his ace and returns a diamond. West wins with his jack and cashes the diamond queen, East discarding the club two. Now West shifts to a deceptive spade nine. How should declarer continue? Note South’s balancing jump overcall. This is no longer weak, as it would have been in the second seat. It is intermediate, showing a respectable six- or seven-card suit and some 14-16 high-card points. The hand will typically contain seven playing tricks (winners). South has lost three tricks, his book. He must play the trump suit without loss. In normal circumstances, he would finesse through East. But whenever an opponent opens the bidding and you buy the contract, always count up the high-card points. Here, North and South have a combined 24 points. East has already produced four, the diamond ace. That leaves at most 12 for West, yet he opened the bidding. He must have the heart king. (Alternatively, if East had had that king, he would have had seven points and would not have passed over his partner’s opening bid.) So declarer should win trick four and play a heart to his ace. When the king luckily drops, South can claim.

8BEHIND THE WHEEL

Lexus GS is top fuel mileage luxury sedan By ANN M. JOB For The Associated Press The 2013 Lexus GS 450h offers the best of two worlds – best-in-class gasoline-electric hybrid fuel economy when you’re not in a rush, and pedal-stomping acceleration when you are. The newly revamped-for-2013 GS 450h mid-size sedan also has an aggressive, sporty sedan look and retains the rear-wheel drive configuration that many sports car aficionados prefer. In fact, many people don’t realize the GS 450h is a hybrid unless they see the hybrid badges on the car’s exterior. Technology, handling, styling and quiet ride are all noteworthy in this middle-of-the-Lexus-line sedan that slots between the larger Lexus LS and entry ES sedans. The 2013 GS hybrid is the first car to combine rear-wheel drive/ front-engine layout with an efficient Atkinson cycle V-6. Buyers can even get a distinctive bamboo-covered steering wheel and interior trim on the GS hybrid, in a nod to environmental concerns about using renewable resources. The Lexus GS is a recommended buy of Consumer Reports magazine, which finds its reliability above average. The GS 450h is the top model of the GS line in both horsepower and price. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, is $60,360 for the 338-horsepower GS hybrid; this does not include navigation system, trunk cargo net or front passenger seat memory. By comparison, the base, 2013 GS 350, which is powered solely by a 306-horspower V-6, has a starting retail price of $48,150. Competitors to the GS hybrid are the major luxury brands with hybrid powertrains. For example, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz E400h is a luxury, mid-size sedan with 302-horsepower, gasoline-electric

Infiniti’s 2013 M35h hybrid starts at $55,655 and has a 360-horsepower V-6 mated to an onboard electric motor system. None of these luxury hybrids is a plug-in. Rather, drivers generate electricity while driving, and it is stored in the onboard battery pack. In the GS 450h, the battery pack is the older-style nickel metal-hydride. Battery packs in the M35h and E400h are the newer lithium ion. The GS hybrid is tops among luxury branded hybrid sedans in fuel mileage, according to the U.S.

government. It is rated at 29 miles per gallon in city driving and 34 mpg on the highway. These numbers, which are a 35 percent increase from the previous GS hybrid, are not far-fetched. The test car, with uplevel 18-inch wheels, easily averaged 28.4 mpg in driving that was mostly in the city and included constant use of air conditioning. This translated into a single-tank range of nearly 500 miles. All the driver did to achieve the mileage was activate “eco” mode, which changed throttle mapping and made other adjustments to conserve fuel. It is one of five selectable

modes on the car. The Infiniti M35h fuel economy rating by the government is 27/32 mpg, and the Mercedes E400h is rated at 24/30 mpg. The most memorable part of driving the GS 450h is how quiet the ride is – conversations can be held in nearly hushed tones inside – and how smoothly power comes on. Virtually all transitions among engine, the two electric motors and the battery pack were seamless in the tester. Indeed, if a driver didn’t notice the word “ready” in green in the instrument cluster after pushing the start button, the lack of engine sound and engine vibration

could make it seem as if the GS 450h hadn’t turned on. In eco mode, power came on gradually and steadily. But in sport-plus mode, throttle response was quick and engine sounds were prominent. In just 5.6 seconds, according to Lexus, the GS hybrid can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour. The V-6 is 3.5 liters, which is the same displacement as the engines in the E400h and M35h. But only the GS has an Atkinson cycle V-6, which is designed for fuel efficiency, and it’s mated to a fuel-conserving continuously variable transmission (CVT) that sounds and acts mostly like a regular automatic. In the test GS 450h, passengers did not hear engine droning, as they sometimes do in other hybrids that have CVTs, until the driver demanded hard acceleration. The 2013 GS 450h received a major makeover from its predecessor. There’s a new underlying platform with a wider track, which helps provide a sportier driving experience. Lexus also makes greater use of high-strength steel in the 2013 GS, which allowed a tauter body and new suspension design. The test GS 450h surprised with its lack of body roll on long sweeping curves taken at high speeds. Steering response was good, particularly in sport-plus mode. Impressively, at railroad track crossings, the test GS 450h kept most bumps away from passengers. There was no noticeable wind noise. On 90-plus-degree days, the GS 450h’s ventilated front seats worked well and quickly. Rear seat cushions were long and gave decent thigh support. Three adults in back, however, sit closely, and rear passengers sit by thick rear window pillars. Rear legroom of 36.3 inches and rear headroom of 37.8 inches are acceptable but not expansive. The flat trunk is nicely finished and has more space than expected: 13.2 cubic feet.

Mercedes-Benz offers luxury S-Class hybrid By DAVID McHUGH The Associated Press FRANKFURT, Germany – Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz is offering a hybrid version of its flagship S-Class luxury sedan that can drive emissions-free – and still provide the kind of pampering and power the pricey brand’s wealthy customers expect. Stuttgart-based Daimler AG took the wraps off the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S 500 Plug-In Hybrid this week at the Frankfurt Auto Show, following the introduction in May of the gasoline and diesel powered versions of the S-Class. The sedan is a key earnings driver in China and comes loaded with technology and extras that can include a hot-stone massage function in the seats and a perfume generator that allows the interior scent to be adjusted. The S 500 plug-in is aimed at people who want a hybrid without compromising on the luxury, powerful acceleration and image that go with driving a Mercedes. Its six-cylinder gasoline engine has a robust 328 horsepower, and there’s no range anxiety, or fear of running out of battery charge, as with an all-electric car. A computer selects the best mix of internal-combustion and battery power. The system uses navigation data to scan the road ahead and maximize efficiency, for instance by using the battery on an uphill stretch, in order to recharge it on the following downhill using energy from the brakes. The car also can use the gasoline engine to charge the battery en route, although that’s more expensive than charging it up at home. The S 500 can be switched to all-electric mode, in which

More than 1,000 exhibitors will show their products to the public through Sept. 22. it has a range of 30 kilometers, or about 18 miles. Someone with a commute shorter than that could simply charge it overnight and travel back and forth all week without burning gasoline at all. Or it can switch to E-Save mode, in which the battery is held in reserve to drive on electric power alone later. The car, which goes on sale next fall, generates 69 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer, which would exempt it from London’s 10-pound ($15.80) congestion charge to enter the city center during working hours. UNDER THE HOOD: 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 plus a 107-horsepower electric motor and a high-voltage lithium-ion battery. The company says the car will accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 kph) in a brisk 5.5 seconds. Top speed is 155 mph (250 kph). INSIDE: Like the conventional model, the S 500 caters to the comfort of rich customers who may have hired

drivers. Back seats recline 43.5 degrees if the passenger wants to kick back and rest. Advanced driver assistance and safety systems using cameras and radar mean the car can adjust the suspension for rough pavement ahead, and drive itself in slow stopand-go traffic. OUTSIDE: The car doesn’t change much in terms of the older model’s sleek lines. It has a taller grille. FUEL ECONOMY: The company says it gets up 78 miles per gallon, or 3.0 liters per 100 kilometers under the European standard, which combines city and highway conditions. PRICE: Not announced yet, but it’s likely buyers will pay a premium over conventional S-Class models. CHEERS: Helps take hybrids and low-emission driving further into the mainstream to new, upscale buyers. JEERS: Hybrids are still only a tiny part of the market.

WEEK 3: DEKALB VS. SYCAMORE AT HUSKIE STADIUM

RISING ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE

Daily Chronicle file photo

Sycamore quarterback Devin Mottet fires off a pass during the first quarter of the annual DeKalb-Sycamore football game Sept. 7, 2012, at Huskie Stadium in DeKalb. Sycamore has defeated DeKalb five straight seasons in the annual rivarly game at Northern Illinois University’s football stadium.

Big stage often overwhelms first-time participants in rivalry game By ROSS JACOBSON rjacobson@shawmedia.com

Online exclusive Check out this week’s “3-Point Stance,” the Daily Chronicle’s weekly video segment exclusively about the local prep football scene, where sports editor Ross Jacobson discusses tonight’s DeKalb vs. Sycamore game with Spartans senior linebacker Logan Schneider, in addition to Steve Nitz and Jacobson breaking down the other games being played this weekend, online at Daily-Chronicle.com/dcpreps.

van Short couldn’t hear himself think the first time he played at Huskie Stadium in 2011. Short, an offensive lineman for Sycamore, was a sophomore playing in only his third varsity game in front of his family, friends and the biggest crowd for a high school game in the county. “It was scary the first time, the big stadium, all the fans yelling and screaming,” said Short, now a senior. “It’s a different atmosphere. I was focused on not looking bad while I was playing.” Two years later, none of that is a worry for Short, who has been through the crazy atmosphere of the annual Week 3 rivalry game between DeKalb and Sycamore twice now. He has more confidence, more self-trust and the helpful experience of knowing what to

expect from the most anticipated local matchup of the year. Many of the players on both sides of tonight’s game at Huskie Stadium will have been there before. Although last year’s matchup was played by largely younger teams, the 2013 version will feature a pair of more experienced teams whose players can say they’ve “been there, done that.” “We’re returning a lot of people, a lot of starters, and a lot of them have gametime experience there last year, so that helps a lot,” said Sycamore senior receiver Ben Niemann, who will be playing in this rivalry game for the third time. DeKalb senior Drew Paszotta was in the same position as Niemann and Short two years ago. With limited game experience, he was thrown into an unfamiliar environment and expected to perform at a high level.

Improved Barbs should put up fight, maybe win Daily Chronicle sports editor Ross Jacobson and sports reporter Steve Nitz spend their days covering the area’s sports scene. Occasionally, they give their viewpoints on those local sports. In this installment of their Take 2 column, they discuss the annual Week 3 matchup between DeKalb and Sycamore at Huskie Stadium.

First of all, DeKalb beaten since 2007, would be another needs to get off to a good start. The Barbs have had slow first quarters big step in the right direction.

For Sycamore, a victory would mean a continuation of the historical dominance the Spartans have had against their rival. It’s another chance for the Spartans to prove they are legitimate contenders for the Northern Illinois Big 12 East title. Last year, Sycamore won, 49-30, and it wasn’t even that close. Do you think we get a better game in 2013? Nitz: That’s a tough question because I think both teams are improved from last season. However, I’ll go with yes. As you mentioned, DeKalb has been on the wrong end of this rivalry. However, if the Barbs can get off to a good start, run the ball well and not turn it over, I could see them being in a close game during the fourth quarter, and possibly pulling out a win.

DeKalb running back Dre Brown tries to power through Sycamore defenders, including John Beaudoin right, during the second quarter of the annual DeKalb-Sycamore football game Sept. 7, 2012, at Huskie Stadium in DeKalb. Jacobson: Unlike in the past, DeKalb’s offense now has the ability to control the clock and shorten the game. They have a gameplan for what they want to do and have executed it well over the first two weeks, even if the Barbs are only 1-1. We won’t see a repeat of last year

when Sycamore effectively had the game won at halftime. The Barbs have more talent and confidence than they did one season ago. It should be an entertaining game and I wouldn’t be surprised to see another 70-plus points on the new Huskie Stadium scoreboard by the end of it.

Game’s atmosphere not so intimidating for veterans • BARBS-SPARTANS From PREP FOOTBALL 1

Randy Stukenberg for the Daily Chronicle

Hiawatha quarterback Mike Mercado tosses the ball to a running back during the Hawks’ home opener against North Shore Country Day last Friday in Kirkland. The Hawks won, 20-8. At 1-1 on the season, Mercado and the Hawks are feeling good about themselves, but are cautious not to get overconfident. “It kind of collapsed on us when we lost [last season],” Mercado said. “I will make sure none of these kids put their heads down, as well as myself. It’s just one game. We should be able to still tough it out, even if it is a loss, a big game. We should still have our heads up.”

WEEK 3: CHRISTIAN LIBERTY ACADEMY AT HIAWATHA

Hawks’ swagger here to stay Mercado: We’re more prepared to handle adversity this season By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com KIRKLAND – Quarterback Mike Mercado and the Hiawatha football team walked around with swagger in mid-September last year. The Hawks beat Hope Academy and Chicago International-Longwood to start the 2012 season 2-1, and they thought they were heading places. “You always want a little bit of confidence and things like that,” coach Sean Donnelly said. “I think their over-confidence grew a little too much and they thought too much about how good they could be, and that came back to bite us in a couple of plays.”

As it turned out, the Hawks didn’t go past the regular season. After a tough loss in Week 4, in which the Hawks failed to convert a two-point conversion in the final minutes, heads started to drop. Five weeks after their 2-1 start, Hiawatha finally won a game when they beat Christian Liberty Academy in the second-to-last week of the season. By then, playoff hopes that were alive and well in September already were gone. That close loss in the fourth game of the season, junior Allen Letterer said, was a turning point. “People started hanging their heads a lot more,” he

said. “They thought what could have been was taken away from them, so they were worried. They all had their heads down. … It was kind of a different vibe. They were just kind of in a funk.” This year, the Hawks are off to a similar start at 1-1, and their confidence is back, as evidenced by Mercado’s prediction for his team’s record this year – 8-1. But there’s a difference this time. Mercado said this team is prepared to handle adversity if it comes its way. Losing one game, he contends, won’t turn the season around this time. “It kind of collapsed on us when we lost [last season],” Mercado said. “I will make sure none of these kids put their heads down, as well as myself. It’s just one game. We should be able to still tough it

out, even if it is a loss, a big game. We should still have our heads up.” Donnelly already has seen that difference in practice. This team is more hungry, more motivated to build off its success. “What was nice was how many of them said [Monday] at practice during conditioning to get guys motivated, ‘We haven’t won anything yet,’ ” Donnelly said. “So their eye is still thinking, ‘We still have seven weeks left; we have a lot to look forward to.’ ” Despite the humble attitude, that swagger remains. This time, Mercado thinks it’ll stick around. “Last year, we kind of walked around for a few weeks like we were studs,” he said. “I think this whole year, we’re going to walk around like we’re studs.”

The intimidation of the big stage that Paszotta felt as a sophomore went away for him last year. He said the nerves dissipated and he came in well-prepared and excited to play. “You’ve got to prepare the same way just as any other week,” Paszotta said. “If you’re too worried about it, you’re going to worry about making a mistake and then you’re going to play to not make a mistake and that’s just when you’re not playing your best.” Although the game is played at a neutral site, it technically is counted as a home game for Sycamore. But that’s not how Sycamore coach Joe Ryan treats it, instead looking at the rivalry game as a road trip. It’s a philosophy that has helped the Spartans win their past five games against the Barbs. Over the past four seasons, the Spartans actually have a better record on the road than when they play in front of their home crowd. Since 2010, Sycamore is a healthy 13-4 away from Engh Community Field and 12-6 at home. “[DeKalb-Sycamore is] very similar like going on the road because when you go on the road, everything’s just a little bit different, every school does things a little bit different,” Ryan said. “So you have to be able to adapt to

how they’re doing things and you can’t let that bother you.” DeKalb coach Matt Weckler might be the person on the field most unfamiliar with the revelry of tonight’s game, having come to DeKalb from Belvidere North after last season. Weckler said people have told him about the atmosphere, adding that he expects it to be “crazy, loud and a lot of fun.” Although Weckler never has participated in the DeKalb-Sycamore series, the significance of it isn’t lost on him. In the run-up to tonight, he had returning players like Paszotta speak about their experiences. “There’s not too many in the state or the country that get the opportunity to play in a Division I stadium in front of 10,000 people, and for these guys you get two, some people three years, to experience that,” Weckler said. “For us, we want those guys to tell our lower levels plus all the rest of the guys that haven’t done it before how special of an opportunity it is for them.” It’s also an opportunity for DeKalb to end Sycamore’s recent domination in the rivalry. And while Paszotta draws upon the past two years’ experience to calm himself beforehand, he’ll use it as added fuel once kickoff arrives. “It motivates you even more to want to beat them,” Paszotta said. “Especially for me, playing two years in a row and losing to them on such a big stage. It’s really hard.”

WEEK 3 PREVIEW CAPSULES Richmond-Burton (1-1) at Genoa-Kingston (0-2) Game time: 7 p.m. today Last meeting: Genoa-Kingston 24, Richmond-Burton 20, in Week 3 of 2012 season Scouting the Rockets: An annual powerhouse in the Big Northern East, Richmond-Burton got a win against Johnsburg in Week 1, but suffered a lopsided, 43-15 loss to Winnebago in a BNC crossover contest last week. The Rockets gave up 232 rushing yards to the Indians, something that plays into G-K’s favor. R-B had only 209 yards of total offense itself. What’s at stake: This game could be considered a must-win for G-K, and the Cogs were in the same situation last season, starting 0-2 before heading to Richmond and scoring a huge upset. G-K moved the ball well against Rockford Lutheran in Week 2, and should do the same against R-B. The question will be whether the Cogs can limit their turnovers and stop giving up the big play. – Steve Nitz, snitz@shawmedia.com

As for the Spartans, the expectation is victory. They’ve done it five consecutive years against DeKalb, and they’ll look to exploit the Barbs’ slow starts to gain momentum in front of a large Huskie Stadium crowd. The pressure is on the Spartans to keep the trend going. – Luke Srodulski, sports@daily-chronicle.com

Kaneland (2-0) at Sterling (2-0) Game time: 7:30 p.m. today Location: Sterling High School, 1608 Fourth Ave., Sterling Last meeting: Kaneland 42, Sterling 0, in Week 3 of 2012 season Scouting the Golden Warriors: Sterling was a playoff team last season even though the Knights blew them away early on. In a 35-16 win over Johnsburg last week, senior quarterback Bryant Lilly passed for 293 yards for a team that isn’t as run-heavy as it has been in the past. Receiver Logan Wharff is Lilly’s top target. An experienced defense might be difficult to penetrate, but the versatile Knights should be able to put up points. What’s at stake: Last year, the Knights asserted their dominance over the Northern Illinois Big 12 in a huge win over the Golden Warriors. A big win tonight would do the same. The Knights cast aside two teams in the first two weeks of the season who won their other game by multiple touchdowns, so big wins are expected this season. If they want to win their 31st consecutive regular-season game, they’ll have to keep the Warriors’ passing game in check. – Anthony Zilis, sports@daily-chronicle.com
